NGS Competition 5/18
« on: October 09, 2018, 04:55:06 pm »
I usually take part in the bi monthly NGS competition in the Business Supplement of the magazine.
I always finish it but have never won anything (no surprises there-I never win anything).

This month though, it is driving me crazy! Itís cryptic clues to Merseyrail stations.
I donít want the answer but just wondered if anyone else is struggling with Question 2?
Iím usually good woth cryptic clues (Iím a big fan of the Daily Telegraph cryptic crosswords) but this has me completely stumped!

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Miss Bunton was a Spice Girl?

Emma Vinton was indeed a Spice Girl, but knowing that and studying a Merseyrail map doesn't make it any clearer

I'm sure my posts say what I meant to say before I post them but sometimes end up differently on the forum. Whether it's my Kindle or The forum itself I'm not sure.

So mal holmes (oroginal drummer with OMD) lived (as a young lad) in Meols.
Mal Holmes and Emma Chisholm (Bunton) nearly an anagram.
Meols is in both names.
Not sure Iím any wiser!
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
