It seems that for once we have a sensible ECF president. Best of luck to Mr Lawson in his new role.

Let's just hope he sticks to chess, eh?

Matt's point is presumably that when he strays from chess topics, his writing can be considerably less than sensible.
True glory lies in doing what deserves to be written; in writing what deserves to be read.

No harm in making the point again IMO. I wish him well as long as he promotes our great game, something he has shown he can do effectively.

I agree that it is an excellent article, though I disagree with the headline "Benedict Cumberbatch and The Imitation Game will turn chess geeks into heroes"

I hope, and expect, that Benedict Cumberbatch and The Imitation Game will turn maths geeks into heroes.

Just thread-jacking for a moment, is this site still on BST?

No, I reset anyone on GMT but left the rest as is so you might need to correct in the user control panel if you are out.
