Over on the Forum, a thread has appeared, asking why the London League fixtures have not yet been published. Astonishingly, the world's worst correspondence chess tournament controller, John "As much use as a chocolate fire-guard" Philpott, chimes in, with the comment:
I had raised this very issue with the London League President yesterday (he happens to be a club mate of mine). He did not know the answer but was doing his best to find out.
I hope for the sake of the chessplayers of the capital that Fliptop himself is not responsible for the fixtures, else the forthcoming season might see a distinct shortage of "smiting across the chequered boards".
