Bledwyn Cringely-Smythe. He was a player, orf the bringer of a sudden end to the tournement. Shut the only Palermo away match. See he transported three hives of bee's and being about to follow Dollis Hill, summoned the swarms and cleared the building. Won outright you know.

Ah yes, the greater American Mornington honeybees. Such fond memories!

I do believe that as today is the 4th of May (Star Wars day - May the 4th be with you) that invoking the twiffle manoeuvre as laid out in the Dickensian Instinctive Crossover would result in Maida Vale, no less.

You watch those spoons there, please!

Neat move. Needs a reverse slide to avoid buffer locking and we end up at Liverpool Street.

Oh no, not the DH loop again.

I tried, but there is no alternative. Dollis Hill.

Gentlemen.
Allow me to add a new move to this noble combat, the Issac Newton. Play is no longer suspended, all due to gravity. Thus it falls to me to call

Exclamation

Sorry Lord G, that move, no matter what improbable novelty you try, is impossible as we are stuck in a Dollis Hill loop. If you wish, call the referee in on this one. However, seeing as it is late on Saturday I suspect you are repeating the error of the late Lord Fothering-Fanshaw, who repeatedly tried to play MC while, it is said, under the influence of several pints of 'Old Toe Rag'. Amongst his memorable exploits were trying the Waterloo to Bank slide, a move that appears so simple on a map but turns out to be fiendishly impossible in reality (even under the 1992 amendments). Strongly suspect you will look at this move tomorrow morning and whince with embarrassment. For the moment I think it is best to assume that, unless the refereee rules otherwise, EM's Dollis Hill move stands.

Gentlemen, does the
  • Apple remain attached to the tree. It will fall.
  • The evening star will ascend or descend dependent on ones vantage point.
  • Would you assault the battlements or utilise guile, to sneak in a cunning ploy to be decisive in victory and magnanimous to ones honourable combatents.
In short you jump fast and too far, beyond the strength of your insignificant arguement. Mornington Crescent should remain : for the time being.
I call for the third umpire and full enquiry.
Fothering Fanshawe : if you only knew the truth.

Surely that it only called for when an LBW decision is required which has only been caught by VT and not by Dickie Bird?

So, underhand tactics have been employed and I shall revert to good, old-fashioned, Radio 4, Graeme Garden style play (anything else is too modern for me!) and go for Euston. And in case that had been lost, it was a move from Dollis Hill!

Cheers

In my role as umpire (as previously decided), I am allowing play from DH and ruling the MC move out of order, and an impass against the rules under a number of longer judgements (all to be publicised here in the near future).

Sir I accept your descision but do not hide in the corner.
After the trial, Fothering Fanshawe used his years ban, to develop a match winning ploy. His Foraminous Foray did have many an intellectual hole, but the
Blackhorse Road exit made a choice starting point for the infamous Middleton Lancer.

Mark my words The Issac Newton will become a fearsome move.

Major Claude Cholmondely-Latimer, late of the Queen's Own Foot and Mouth was quite fond of the Calcutta Reverse Shuttle before the unfortunate incident with the demolition charge and the public lavatory. Applying this gambit would direct play to

Well, it all seems to somehow have got us out of the loop. And a good thing too.
