Now a move to surrey quays from Camden town? well now, that's a disqualifier, as Churchill found out to his cost when he an Lloyd George were in Number 10 betting on the Premiership (not the football, but the PM's chair) Before Lloyd pressed on to Germany with a white peice of paper. God knows how world history would have panned out had Churchill gone for.....*bang*

RC, I apologise for a weak move. In my defence I would point out that I had just read in my local paper, in the 'days out' section advertising things to do while the kids are on holiday an advertisement for a 'family entertainment centre' in Bideford, called 'The Big Sheep' and this was causing a certain amount of mental tension, mainly envisigainoning (or imagining even) the traffic which is going to ensue from Cardiff on the M4 and M5.

Anyway, back to the game, which seems to be in a state of Flux (it's a little place, near Andorra, if you really want to know).

Given that there is a dispute as to whether the game is currently at Whitechape, Camden or Surrey Quays I shall employ the platform-entry crossover (allowed under the 1933 convention on 'out of rush hour' rules) at Arsenal and go for the extra depth at:-

Thats it!!!..no more Mr nice guy and the gloves are now off!

Perusing through my copy of Crabbit's notation on quantum token dynamics of MC (ISBN 1-8541-42193) I see I am well placed to initiate a Harris-three wild blocking shunt to...


Green park

..an aggressive but wholly justified move fully endorsed by CAMREC (the campaign for real crescent)

Nice one!

Using the Fourth Amendment of the StJohn-Fosbury Reticulation Agreement will then, of course, give us

Stamford Brook

A nice safe play. Vanilla but with a bite of chili as you'll no doubt find out in a few moves....

So, to use the Heathrow Loop amendment of 1998 (security may be tight and the stations closed for runway resurfacing but the tracks all there) to insert a quick spanner:-

This is getting dangerously close to short finals.

So having rolled a double Iíll use a star move to go to HILLY and then enter the hold at

Biggin Hill.

Take that! Been here before? don't get giddy

Time to unleash a monster methinks.

Using the powers bestowed under the 1939 emergency powers act,I hereby escape to victory via Green park-use the lttle known tunnel known as..Q-Whithall and proceed directly to...

Buckingham palace

Q-whitehall is a secret tunnel which was engineered in 1939 by the British royalty to enable them an upperhand whilst playing MC during the war years.As a card carrying member of CAMREC and being a fifth quadranter,I have full authority to use said tunnel.

the tide is now coming in and I sense victory.

Oh you do, do you?

In that case I'll make sure you don't win by playing

I have the powers of Lucan with me-he only dissappeared due to a 'misunderstanding' involving the use of the Hughes ruleset during a particulary fiery game of MC in the Hellfire club.

Shameful behaviour ... invoking Rules regarding Programming of New Shows during the Summer, combined with Reality TV triple shunts, I give you:
