Re: CJ Banned?

Ernie your not being predjuice or discriminating against class at all in your last comment are you. That is the sort of remark on this forum which should not be tolerated it is not up to you to go off on one ranting or generalising about a small miniority of people sending hate emails to Lara. That ...

Re: CJ Banned?

Paul I could not agree more, It seems Charlie thinks he has some special credials that others do not, I agree it's urgent, but making you president Charlie might be the ECF's biggest mistake all year. But then again lets not jump to conclusions I don't think the board have accepted CJ's resignation ...

Re: CJ Banned?

Charlie I think this is not the correct thread to be presenting your case for election.


I back Simon on that 100%, I think it was more CJ possibly acted inappropriately why he felted obligued to go to the media bet he wishes he didn't now!

Re: CJ Banned?

Lara Barnes I think people do certainly understand why you did what you did, and it was purely for the interest of the Congress I appreciate that; Your right about CJ's financial contribution to the British Chess CHampionships and his effort's to make the event public. Regarding your comment on "Dre...

Re: CJ Banned?

The other interesting point Roger, CJ was wearing wearing that T- shirt a few days before one in the commentary room and NO one said anything and their were juniors present there. So I think if they were going to take action it should of been immediate otherwise they have not shown much efficiency a...

Re: Hats at the board

I think this thread is some what unneccessary and could show some discrimination. I suppose wearing a hat could mean your cheating is this people's philosophy or perhaps their opponent is thinking they're trying to blank them. There are not many poker players that don't wear shades and hats it's par...

Re: CJ Banned?

What I find interesting is would CJ have wore that T-shirt on the Eggheads I assume there is a dress- code there which means he is not allowed. At the end of the day there is NO dress- code in chess and therefore anyone should be allowed to wear anything they want unless it is classified offensive. ...

Re: CJ Banned?

We all make mistakes it's that simple we are all human. It would not be natural not to make errors or mis- judgements and perhaps they both made errors; neither are too blame more than one another.

I am sure it will calm down in a few days.

Re: CJ Banned?

I regret to see CJ's resignation and send him my condolences and it is upsetting that this position ECF President seems to be a poisonous chalice. So Jack the position for Junior Chess may well become vacant sooner than we believe. If they accept CJ's resignation who on earth will take his place. Ma...

Re: CJ Banned?

I think the article in the Guardian is mis- leading just because she deemed it inappropriate to give the prizes it does not state he got barred or thrown out over it! Almost looks like she was expressing her opinion even though it was incorrect when she said "CJ was trying to promote gay rights" I d...

Re: CJ Banned?

Does any agree with Lara that CJ was trying to promote, I think she mis- understood his motifs for wearing the T- Shirt. Clearly the pappers will be abrupt and over- exaggerate the events. I hope in time that it will calm down; that would be off interest for the game of chess. Nick I think you'll fi...

Re: CJ Banned?

This is all caused because of one Chief Arbiter, but what right does Lara Barnes have to tell the president to leave she is not in charge of the congress should it not be the congress manager, I thought Lara was a fund raiser.
