Very well-
And with great trepidation-

Dollis Hill

When the Radical factions were proposing the removal of Dollis Hill from the game back in 1967, Mrs Trellis was having none of it. "The London Underground," she stated "is not some mathematical abstraction with which intellectuals may fiddle in order that their Straddles are more enjoyable. It is a real map, and Dollis Hill is a real place on it. One may avoid it where possible, certainly, but one cannot do away with it. Those who seriously propose such nonsense should shape up and learn to play in the real world."

I'm away for a weekend and nobody takes the plunge? Oh well. Since it's within 40 degrees of parameter boundaries, I can make a half strile to Chancery Lane.

Look old son, you forgot to invoke Australian rules first, a serious offence under section 412, paragraph 1080 of the 1913 rules,  so I have to take a quick spin back to the UK -
