    As a point of clarification, please can someone knowledgeable confirm that we are using the ’75 winter rules (i.e. 1975) and not the ’75 wynter rules (i.e 1875) which don’t make exceptional allowances for traversing treated or untreated routes in the case of snow deposits less than or equal to 1.5 inches. Many thanks.

    1975 surely. Apart from anything else they’re much less tedious.

    Anyway. Elephant & Castle.

    Has that been salted?

    Regardless – Holborn.

    Will Postman Pat make it through to Westbourne Park?

    Yellow snow spotted, means Whitechapel

    Whitechapel?

    That’s brave in those conditions: I’d have sought the safety of Kensal Rise.

    Avoid Grange Hill though, unless Mrs. McClusky has got Mr. Griffiths to clear the snow.

    If it’s snowing then it has got to be White City.

    the snow has gone!

    Morden.

    Smooth.

    I’ll double back, alight at Holborn and head north with a twist – Elephant and Castle.

    Embankment avoiding The Hague.

    St Pancras via DLR, unless it’s still snowing, in which case Angel.

    Kensington olympia following the beard rules from the GBBF

    Back to Embankment then.

    Shoreditch (too easy!)

    Would I be right in saying that I can alight at Shoreditch (if I’m wearing my sister’s jeans) and use a man scooter to carry on to Old Street?

    Alighting at Shoreditch means that for the next three moves you can only move laterally. The Crab Offensive.

    I thought the Crab Offensive had been revised in ’77, and again in ’03?

    Clapham South … I’m liking your style sir!

    Clapham South? All too easy.

    Angel.

    I’ve given this a lot of thought and before we break for Easter I’m going to offer Embankment………again.

    Actually, can I change that to Tooting Bec?
