On 27 June, in a story concerning the cricketing exploits of St Philips Chambers junior tenant Ed Williams, Tulkinghorn confidently predicted an England Ashes victory.

“And by 2015, it wants to create a viable squad, capable of taking on the mighty English cricket team,” said the story of Williams’ project, “which Tulkinghorn confidently predicts will still be in possession of the Ashes after snatching them from the Aussies’ grasp this summer. Or is that tempting providence?”

No, it later transpired, was the correct answer.
