Must we use pre decimal coinage? I move Oxford Circus.

Ahem...

Tube passengers travelling to and from Heathrow Terminal 4 will be using a dedicated bus shuttle at Hatton Cross from January 7, 2005 for 20 months.
Clearly there was no mention of Terminal 4 though. I move to strike, nay penalise, your mention of the motorised pedestrian carrier under the Nixon Directive (1995, London Edition).

Thus, and extra turn sees my backhand wesley-orpington get me directly to Chalfont & Latimer!

District and Circle, they're both trump lines, are they? I mean with the Nixon Directive being in play.

You'll pick it up as we play... Although jeremy is being a bit of a cad and invoking ancient rules

Right, so if Jeremy has Chalfont's I'll invoke a pass under caution and wait for a threepenny blocker.

Aha you've all forgotten Red Ken vs The People Ruling: High Court 1999, Mr Justice Wigham and subsequently enacted within The Reverse Badgering Act 2002 (as amended) so that means straight to Chancery Lane. Bit risky but well worth the frisson.

A perusal of the Uninteresting but Safe 1967 rule addition segues me neatly to Holborn.

Upside down play odd but legal - Great news, what with Holborn being my nominated "furgle" I can utilize my J.Edwards pass across to Holborn

I can see jeremy getting away here, he's still got the option of a reverse porter and a low siding shunt despite the 1967 upside down safe play, surely?

Explicitly forbidden in the 1899 rewrite. I believe it states that the use of any form of horseless carriage will invoke an immediate two move hiatus.

Wasn't this revoked in the Osmonds ruling of 1975?

Mmmm, I'm a little worried by the Northern upside-down play if truth be known. However, the little-known Thrimbleton gambit of assuming a southern hemisphere outlook means that I should be OK to advance directly to Ravenscourt Park and in doing so neatly invoke the District Line trump! (I was hoping to keep that up my sleeve, but my learned clever-clogs has already pointed it out).

I heard that in Wimbledon. Must be reverberating around the tunnels.

Do you know I think I'm going to have to pass. But I will provisionally give notice of the Brindley-Frottage manoeuvre which should temporarily block the eastern side and render Prince Regent out of bounds (under the DLR revisions approved in '99 by Helmholz).

Worringly this could leave the door open for BliarOut if he can remember the intricacies of the Blakedown Overstride.

The Osmonds ruling only applied in 1975 itself, to mark the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act.

I'm invoking the Emergency Powers measures of 9/11 which permit alternative transport within a two stations of chestnut stuffing outbreaks. This is increased to three stations if you're rescuing someone, and four if they're pretty.
