The ECF decision reminds me of a scene in the film Argo
Mendez: ... There are only bad options. It's about finding the best one.
Turner: You don't have a better bad idea than this?
O'Donnell: This is the best bad idea we have, sir. By far.
Plenty of action today. Dvorkovich kicked off
"I am pleased to learn that Ethics Commission will stage its meeting on September 28, and my good name will be reconfirmed already before the elections. I'd like to point out that we offered to stage the hearing on September 18, but the complainant has declined this proposal."
"While threatening in public, aiming to stop me from complaining to the Ethics Commission, at the same time he is begging the same Commission for immunity. #I cannot be threatened."
Then Malcolm commented
on the ECF decision:
"Stinging rebuke for @nigelshortchess who cannot even gain the support of his own federation. England decisively votes for Makropoulos ticket...For the record I recused myself from the vote"
Makro of course was in his glee
"The English Chess Federation officially announced support for our ticket in #FIDEelections2018 and not Nigel Short who they nominated in the past. Proving the true value of Short's marriage with our rivals = Zero (0). Not even his own country supports him... Thank you England!"
