But surely if you allow Barbican to Glouster Road then you are playing the original Canadian rules, back when the game was known as Union Station.

I thus invoke the British North American Act clause:

East Acton.

In the original Canadian rules a reverse manoeuvre can only be played by a resident of the province of Quebec first time. I think we need a ruling here.

You are probably working from the 1896 translation of the Union Station rules, which are generally considered to be incorrect.See the Court ruling in McGill v. McMasters. Chris' reversal is quite legitimate.

Humph is currently in a bar just of the Strand, so I'll head there and see if I can find him.
