Of course, our chums from the Fourth Estate are always greedy for news; even greedier for bad news. Thus it is difficult to objectively evaluate the problems. The Sentinel didn't seem to carry articles about the tens of thousands of people who had a more frequent or convenient service. At the root of the problem, as previously opined by fbb, was the fact that, in July, everything changed; routes, numbers, frequencies, fares - the lot! And all this came not long after the disastrous opening of the too-small bus station in Hanley itself. Even the press didn't blame First Bus for that, but the mud sticks even so.

It was Tertullian (complete with silly hat) who sorted out the confused and argumentative theology.
Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus, anglicised as Tertullian (160 to 225), was a prolific early Christian author from Carthage in the Roman province of Africa. He has been called "the father of Latin Christianity" and "the founder of Western theology."
But it took another hundred years or more before his tidy (but utterly mind-blowing) explanation became part of the "official" creeds of the Christian church. God was one "being" but three "beings" all at the same time.
But we rush on ahead of ourselves. As the Old Testament faded away, there was a growing belief that God would do something dramatic; maybe, just maybe, he would send his "Messiah", his anointed one, chosen to sort everything out.
"Messiah" in Hebrew is translated as "Christos" in Greek. God's Messiah is the Christos of Christmas.
