This is exactly what I'm referring to when I talk about allowances being made for inconsistencies.

Is the scenario being posited by Caz the official version? Or are we just inventing ways for the timeline to make sense, like we're inventing ways for out-of-date phrases and pub names to be explained?

Imagine if this was how the police did their work? lol.

Well, this man may not have robbed that bank, he could've easily had his face transplanted like John Travolta and Nick Cage did in Face-Off!

If the historian, Chris Jones, is the one I've mentioned on here previously, then I'm sure he'll have something to say regarding the dubious diary.

You are still going to the conference, I take it? Why not report back afterwards instead of assuming what I'm basically saying all the time?

Rigby certainly didn't go to any pub at lunchtime in Anfield, Caz, not from Aigburth.
No I don't suppose he did for a minute, Mike.

And when did they go to the University with the book?
Your guess is as good as mine. No - make that better than mine. I'm sure you could ferret out that kind of information in no time.

Love,

Caz

It's not clear what you're saying, Caz, as you refrain from using specific names and details, which isn't surprising.

It's a bit hard not to assume when you refrain from making your points clear, using specifics as opposed to vague details.

So who did?

So I'm correct in saying that you're merely inventing ways to allow for an inconsistent timeline? Why am I not surprised?

Yeah, and I've only been saying the same thing myself for about a hundred years.

But no sense of humour, me. I wouldn't recognise a funny story if it bit me.

So we must both be wrong, eh?

I'm generally always correct, Caz, apart from when I'm wrong.

Funny, that.
Funny that, because I did tell you his name. I also described Robert Smith's similar experience with a different source at a different time.

Not my fault if you were too busy taking the piss to read what I actually told you. But it would certainly explain a lot. For starters it might explain why you think something is 'obscure knowledge', if you don't take in what's going on around you. I hope you perform better than this at the conference or you'll be coming back complaining that you weren't told anything.

Love,

Caz

Nope, you said you couldn't recall one bloke, and offered me the surname of one man, or some initials.

What's amazing, is that these two vague people for whom you claim to have no contact with, are the only two people in this city who can lay claim to knowing possibly the most obscure nickname for a pub ever.

The Post Office Tavern, apparently known by two random blokes as the "Poste House."

And I hope Skinner isn't as hopelessly vague and evasive as you seem to be when you attempt to explain consistently inconsistent errors, Caz.

Next you'll be telling me that the Post Office in the Corn Exchange served ale on weekends.
