I have to say that, although I've heard many of these
criticisms of David Knight before and some of them may not
be without ground, they're at odds with my experience.
My experience of David Knight through the recent work at
Great St Marys, Cambridge was that if you took the trouble
to understand him and his views, involved him early and
often, and treated him as a potentially valuable ally, you
could win him round. Certainly the report he produced for
GSM could hardly have been better had I written it myself!
I can easily imagine, though, that had we approached him
with an adversarial attitude and the intention of sidelining
him as an ill-formed irrelevancy, things could have played
out very differently.
I may not agree with all of his opinions, but he doesn't
strike me as an unreasonable bloke.
