Letter of the week: The Evening News’ April Fool article was not such a senseless idea

The spoof article, “We’re on track for a gigantic new rail hub at Swainsthorpe” written by Avril (April in French) Fish about Dr Olaf Pirol, (an anagram — April Fool) made very amusing reading, but is it such a senseless idea? (Evening News April 1).
Trevor Lewis wrote a letter in the previous night’s Evening News which also makes sense, unless that was a lampoon letter as well, but one day too early
‘Norwich needs a new station’ (Evening News March 31).
Councillor John Fuller, leader of South Norfolk Council, should concentrate on delivering the Long Stratton bypass which has been a parody for almost 50 years instead of partaking in a little burlesque!
Both these major infrastructure projects could be considered seriously rather than being the subject of amusement — and perhaps a new Mayor for East
Anglia may deliver such major infrastructure notions under the devolution proposals. Should they ever came to fruition, then Dunston Hall could be renamed the ‘Railway Tavern’.
