Further to-: Roaming Dan Strand Tangental.
His was the source of the infamous Roaming Dan Surreptitious Take.
Strumption R.V. light blue said of it thus. `Surreptitious Take. A move in Mornington Crescent, that can be done without and forever. Savage is too mild a description. '

A Fottlein and Vouvshertz quick stop
Great Portland Street




And what of Roaming Dan any news?

The last I heard of Roaming Dan he was serving time in a Madrid prison after his failed attempt to bribe the Mayor to rename the Concha Espina station to El Mornington Crescente to satisfy his lust for the game whilst visiting the Mediterranean.

I therefore shall take a sunny disposition to

No time for intracacies i'm afraid, DeepThroat has been in contact and promises to divulge the identity of Proot Jr once and for all! The Meeting is scheduled for:

Belsize Park.

Torqil Proot does not need to be identified again, he has been outed more times than I care to remember.

If you need to know what he looks like, just think of his father (if your stomach can take it) and then add a single eyebrow which bisects his entire face from ear to ear and a head of hair which to all intents and purposes appears to have been stolen from Moe Stooge. A more disgusting apparition cant be envisaged.

And so, following AOs pleadings a gentle perambulation to OXFORD CIRCUS (Northern Line)

er, wierd. There is no Northern line at Oxford Circus. Unless it's some wierd Arizona take on Oxford Circus? Lost again, Luke?
Getting there from Belsize Park is a real pain, with either one or two changes.

me, I'm for the easier life, down to a place with, shall we say, the possibility of liveliness.................

Charing Cross.

That's quite enough liveliness!

It's peace, quiet and an early bedtime for all in ...

AO,

If you care to peruse the 1937 official LU map, which I have in front of me at this precise minute, you will see that you are, once again.....wrong!

And before you cry "Foul", nobody said we were playing under 2010 Rules. In fact Stovold, Grieves and Prootian conventions have already been used in the last 20 moves, so I feel perfectly free to play using Ethel Cummerbund's excellent second volume of "Mornington Crescent and how to navigate the Circle Line in a Straight Line (Wednesdays Excepted)"

This calls for a carefully considered move using Cummerbund to WATFORD HIGH STREET

How timely! It's never too soon to consider once again that the Games proceeds under the more or less benign hand of the Rules. The Rules are the great Authority (according to the vast majority of MC thinkers) and they are worked out and adjusted like the Common Law by the Great Crescenters of each era.

Of the past eras we have of course Stovold, Humph and others. Even today there are those whose depth of MC knowledge can only stun and amaze.

As to the current move, I can only suggest a regulation slide to

Bayswater.

Wrong again

Luke,
My first line shouldn't take too long,
I am right and you are wrong.

Not even right in 37....................Another Flop gun moment?

Onwards, and, well, er, sideways, (as no-one spotted the excitement possible with Charing cross).

Curses! the arranged meeting with DT seems to have been foiled! Unexplicably there was a custard truck explosion near Belsize Park which forced a closure. Dirty pool indeed. One has rescheduled but the location is not:

Kennington.

Rules as set down are great, but aren't Stovold, Grieves and Prootian conventions all part of the Bugler Variation, so making this a game of 1910 rules?

Kennington? Hanga left at Vauxhall

Stovold and Grieves, certainly, and possibly Moore and Humph, but I think any elevation of Proot or his (their) tactics and strategies is unwise. As to 1910, my Stovold is the 14th (knurled') edition, and includes all properly authorised amendments up to 2010.

Anyway, East Finchley has always been a good move under the present circums tances.

That is indeed a very good move.
Using the very well known, but rarely cited Cryer injunction I shall move to

Theydon Bois

Theydon Bwaa?

I feel a little history coming on. As many of the more senior members will recall, Monsieur Theydon Bwaa, a French tourist, attempted to cross the line at the then named Coal Pit Glade, to buy a Walls ice lolly whilst waiting for the 10.30 connection to Liverpool Street. Unfortunately, being unfamiliar with LU conventions, he erroneously stepped on the live track and toasted himself to a crisp. In memory of this unwise perambulation, LU dedicated the station to his memory, but got the spelling wrong (a not unreasonable mistake in translation).

And I will proceed immediately to MONUMENT

Cryer injunction
I have waited years to see that adopted.
A move that hit the ground running. Theydon Bois { Actually the posh form of Theydon's Boys. It changed after foreign languages were taught; in schools }

In response. An East of London charge

Well, thank you for that bit of information. I had no idea that there was a charge for going to the Eastern side of London. Another reason for not going there, I guess.

An easy slide takes us to a place of no great merit, othr than the fact that it is not East London.........................

I'd be a little circumspect about tossing around the name 'East London' without qualification. There's a sizeable MC community in the city of that name in Eastern Cape Province, SA which has never got over being passed over for the Millennium Convocation (Southern Hemisphere). Still seething, according to some. So revenge is always a possibility, although it's a long way for them to get anywhere of course.

Hampstead Heath would be my choice.
