A most erudite and well contrived run of play. One will do one's best to emulate so fine a volley and continue the run by submitting...

Golders Green Oi Vey !

A move first pioneered by Woody Allen in celebration of managing to play an E13th on the clarinet during his regular Monday night stint at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan, New York.

A largely un reported fact by the media is that at last weeks montreal convention on the Kyoto agreement,various MC criteria and rule amendments were discussed.Im told it got quite heated at certain stages where Kofi Annan tried (unsuccessfully) to outlaw the wainwright-hatters ruling of '34 which allows Dollis hill to be played diagonally from an out of zone station during rush-hour.

A new gambit was unleashed by a previously unknown Seth Blackledge who rather modestly christened his move a 'double Seth with Yorkshire influence'.This culminated in a very cost effective move allowing full value for money and little excuse for 'moaning'.

I hereby invoke the 'double seth' and apply an added twist of 27ng% line velocity using Kalvin's discretion.

Gentlemen, I give you..

Hmm, a tricky one and no mistake.

However, I seem to think I can employ a Double Fortescue Shuffle given we are heading westwards and thus move to

Mmmm....

Wasn't the Double Fortescue Shuffle outlawed on safety grounds after the untimely demise of Mrs Agnes Grolledes in the 1947 by-play at the World Championships? I believe the penguin has subsequently been found but what became of the fire extinguisher remains a mystery.

However, one will continue play with

A rather textbook move is required to counter this...

A little ambitious with one's spoon, are we not, Mr Matlow? The Helgenberger Acquisition cannot guarantee a return flonge in this instance and one would be left exposed to pantaloon.

Oh, well....

Needs must and you did initiate this foolishness yourself.

Clapham Junction

Counter spoon and pantaloon, my dear sir...

Smart deviant move to Clapham Junction. Me thinks you are about to attempt a thribble: however the well known crack shot / high street snooker ace Marksman Spencer once played, and I follow his bead with - Holland Park

Mr Twotter,i fear you have underestimated my MC enlightenment and overlooked the the possibility of the Arkwright infraction being played.

Piccadilly circus

And further utilising the arkwright manouvre,I appear to have gained Godlike tendencies for a period not exceeding 10 minutes and am able to continue to..

Briston

Burnley

Dollis Hill

Dollis Hill

Dollis Hill

Stoke Poges

and...

That should clear away a few cobwebs!

That last move was debatable. I'll allow it, due to my good mood!

Can I suggest a triple shunt, reversal adjunct to move to Hounslow West?

That move by ex_matelot was a grape shot: only allowed after a Holland Park: on account of the maker of fine guns.
I think Mr Twotter and I have the measure of ex_matelot: your

A lot of interesting play since I last ventured forth here. I have to agree with Mr Twotter that some of the spooning has been, at best, speculative.

It is worth noting that there are those who hold that playing Waterloo opens us up to a Eurostar-Paris Metro gambit. This would involve playing Lille and then Gare du Nord. However, I don't hold with these new fangled, foreign approaches (they'll be telling us that tom yam paste is good for us next - sorry wrong thread). So, avoiding all of this flim-flammery, I'll play a good old English move of:

In 1853, a small vacuum tube about 225 yards (200 metres) long was built to deliver letters inside a Post Office building. The system, now known as a Lamson Tube, became very popular, and in 1859 the Pneumatic Despatch Company was formed to build a larger subterranean line between the Post Office buildings. A test-line 450 yards (411 metres) long was built near Battersea, and the Post Office approved it. The first line was finished in 1863 between the North Western District Office and the parcels arrival area at Euston station nearby. The tunnel was built below the streets using the 'cut and cover' method.

I believe that the proximity of the Post Office tunnels allows me to play...... Farringdon having managed to by-pass Oxford Circus which at this time of year, is no mean feat.

Oh, dear! One foresees the naming of the Fraser Vacuum By Pass for such an audacious move. The Laws Comittee will have an awful time sorting that one out as an addendum to the vacuum braking system in use. As it's currently not within the Laws, one will circumvent the juxtaposition it creates and play

Good grief, that certainly puts me in difficulty. Dare I raise the question of collusion between Mr Fraser and Mr Twotter? Have they been conversing offline and coming up with fiendish plots to confuse the rest of us? In the absence of any hard evidence, such accusations cannot be raised - but the suspicion exists!

So, I am forced to assume that this tight corner - no shunts, drives or bypasses allowed, has arisen purely by accident with no malice aforethought.

There is clearly only one answer, and a pretty poor answer it is, at that.

Back to Waterloo

I and my legal counsel would like to issue the following statement ......

Allegations of links between myself and vacuum devices of any description are a complete falsehood. The only extension to which I have been party is the Jubilee Line. I therefore bid that impressive erection, Canary Wharf
