Funny piece, in a number of ways, ending with the exhortation
we'll make it an Olympic year in many ways.How? Will chess be in the Olympics then? But let it pass, and scroll up to the flounce:
I do understand the criticisms levelled at me by some people for my more radical methods – one major issue seems to have been my habit of putting my own money into chess and into the federation but in the light of these concerns, I shall desist from doing so immediately.Hmmm.
Now as it happens I know of nobody who's criticised CJ for his "habit" (a settled or regular tendency or practice?) of "putting [his] own money into chess", but the comments box is open for anybody who can supply a reference to anybody doing so.
Curiously, though, I do have a reference to a previous comment of CJ's, from 13 July 2011, more than three months before the one given above.
In all honesty, I won't be contributing any more personal funds to chess as I can't afford it
Makes a change. Previously CJ reckoned he'd done things he didn't appear to have done. Now it's the other way around: he's claiming he's going to do something that he already did.
