OK, Pimlico is. Therefore, applying the obligatory Stovold admonition,

Saturday journeys from Holland Park may be made only in the Westerly quadrant unless via Moorgate
(Brighton, Winter '06, pre-lunch gambit)

Moorgate

Man muss das Blame all-zeit mit die Franzosich leben. Ich bin ein bissen flummoxed warum das Englischer-spik gemachten ist. Jetzt gibt es nur ein antwort - die Park des Koningins. (or thereabouts).

Don't sprechen any Deutsche... but that looks suspiciously like schwein-deutsch to my uneducated eye. Which would be in direct (and I do mean DIRECT) contravention of the planned Sarajevo Teutonic-Saxon accords of July, 1914 (one holds an original draft copy... much spotted and stained by what appears to be Traminer from Franz Ferdinand's own private cellar). Try not to let it happen again.

It is little known that Kaiser Wilhelm was a closet Mornington Crescent fanatic. You may draw from this what conclusions you will.

As such, an exception move will be made to:

Konstanzer Strasse

Positive re-alignment urgently applied:

Spade in hand,

Queensbury

(Avoiding at all times, the (almost) eponymous Marquis!)

. . . for the purists, the left hand, thus neatly avoiding creel . . .

Which would presumably make Das Konig Ergrimmen (or cross, if you English johnnies don't have the lingo).

Spade in Hand, definately if one is about to unearth a treasure.

Those legends Howe Itzer & Mort Ar ( often considered to be noms-des-plumes ) played Cannon Street nb, nothing to do with taking pictures.

Now, this really is exciting. Itís been an awfully long time since the Wittgenstein Parlay was last invoked - so long, in fact, that I am only going to hazard a guess in such august company. But was it not, perhaps, the inaugural Mongolian Round of 1947 when the reverse synergy of WP proved almost completely unassailable, in responding to Cannon Street with Pinner?

Aha, M'Lud!

One detected the trap at once, and dear Stockpicker took the bait - a masterstroke, leading of course, to

Tower Hill,

where, to be sure, no number of spades will defend him.

Close-run thing, though - had he followed the Mongolian transcript further and invoked the parallel, but (Saturdays only) Schlegel Querschritt, he'd have gone direct!

The British Underground Geographic Grid Electronic Randomiser has just signalled 'New Vaudeville Band', which of course implies 'Finchley Central'. First stanza:

Finchley Central
Is two-and-sixpence
From Golders Green
On the Northern Line

This single was released on the Fontana label (catalogue no. TF 824) and reached no. 11 in the charts in 1967, and was the third disc (contd p94)

Rubbish, it implies nothing of the sort... 'discorde' is right...

Top chap Richo77: that is one move, to catch the unwary.
Tis with Jubileeation, that I attempt:Dagger Caufmans Expectoration. He beat the clock and at the last moment spat out this response in a famous championship.

If memory serves me well,Bugger was a station on the now deleted expletive line,other stations were A**e End,Damnation Junction, and Feckers Avenue.
However as this line does not appear on the current network map then we are forced to concede that we are in knid and therefore can only proceed by a show of hands of all members of the MC Rules Committee.
In the meantime may I suggest we pause whilst at.

Vauxhall

NIGELINOZ, erudition as always.

Richo77! Genius!
the flaming sword of Judacea
However, one has pored through the archives, and is able to reveal a trumping manouevre:

The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, which leads us, logically, from Vauxhall, to

Barkingside

and, one ventures, while perilously close to creel, en-route to MC!!

Ahhh Vauxhall! How very Regency - images of strings of paper lanterns and cads chasing maidens along darkened groves. A fairly straightforward resolution, though, to Ravenscourt Park.

Imbibed have we Stockpicker? Ravenscourt Park.
What lubricated such a fearless and dangerous move.
Picture the scene 1937, Eastnor and Kilbreechie finals.
Hamish ( you know Skein du ), was playing a four hander.
Himself & Ol Bastipole. Any how the game was abandoned, when messenger ran in with the note which read Raven's caught, Park
From that day on Churpy Raven always wore two pairs of trousers.
One will use the infamous poacher.
