Gnomes[edit]

What's the connection between the Gnomes of Neasden discussion (and image) and the film? It seems a pretty random aside to me. --82.45.163.4 08:01, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Betjeman, who was a columnist for "Private Eye" at the time, used a patent ref to the long-running characterisation of Neasden by the "Eye" as the architypal suburb and a "Private Eye" record as backing. The ref to "the gnome" is a fairly unmistakable allusion to the "Eye". IXIA 12:39, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Closing Scene[edit]

It may be hair splitting but we cannot say of Verney Junction that “Betjeman closed the programme here with the words, ‘Grass triumphs ...” He delivered that eulogy at Shipton Lee , five miles to the south. Mattered to me.

Fair use rationale for Image:Neasden - Private Eye.JPG[edit]

Image:Neasden - Private Eye.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

Neasden[edit]

Is it worth noting-- I don't know how to insert this quite and keep the flow-- that JB was for many years the architecture correspondent for Private Eye. I don't know the dates, though have collections of his diaries so I imagine could check up relatively easily?

Alleged "peacock terms"[edit]

I have re-read this article in the light of the tag, "This article may contain unsourced peacock terms that merely promote the subject without imparting verifiable information ..." I simply don't understand the latter. The only conceivable such words are those in final sentence of the introductory paragraph, which are, of course, borne out by the well-referenced remarks by critics in the final paragraph. All the information in the article is verifiable. I think the caption is misleading and should be removed. IXIA (talk) 15:20, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
