FIDE is imminently threatened with the loss of all its banking facilities, due to the dubious friends that FIDE's President has made and continues to make. Call me ridiculously old-fashioned and idealistic, but is this not the type of situation in which a President for Life apologises for his mistak...
It has been snowing here since 5 a.m. If the snow is lying quite nicely here in London, I can only imagine what it must be like out in the wilds. I hope the three EPSCA U11 Inter-association Zonals today are not badly affected. The East Zonal at Bromley is organised by Jo Wildman of KJCA. She sent o...
Some further postings received from Phil Ehr: Friends, We all watched in horror as President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to our country, calling his hateful group of followers and their alt right rhetoric the "New American Movement".

What part of London?
If you wish to make a complaint concerning bullying, then as I am the Safeguarding Officer, you should pass it on to the Richmond upon Thames LSCB. Their Single Point of Contact is 020 8891 7969. Good luck with that, and remember that malicious and vexatious claims may themselves have legal conseque...
Your meaning was clear and shameful. However it is not a surprise as the dwindling cast of Brexit supporters in politics and the media cast around for internal and eternal enemies to scapegoat for the inevitable failure that they face over the coming few years in delivering any of their varied castl...
Oh, well done there. The Brexit paranoiacs even administer their punishment beatings to children, now.Not sure the reason for some of your inflammatory phrases Paul. On a Sunday morning too.
