The Sun (London tabloid newspaper), 14th May 2010:

"In an article on February 3, we implied two thirds of
Haitians drank goats' blood while practising voodoo. We are
happy to make clear this is not the case."

Daylight Stratified Open Pairs
Dlr: North
Vul: North-South

The bidding has gone:

---       1D        Pass      ?

You, South, hold:


So you, South, elect to respond with a weak jump to 2H.

The bidding continued:

---       1D        Pass      2H (1)
Pass      3H        Pass(2)   ?

(1) Your 2H was initially not alerted by partner.

(2) East foolishly enquired about the meaning of 2H.

    Partner responded that 2H was natural and game-forcing.

    But then partner noticed that she had not opened 1S,
    but had rather opened 1D.  So partner now explained
    that your 2H jump response promised 5 spades, 4 hearts
    and 5-9 hcp (which in fact is the convention written on
    your partnership's System Cards).

You have multiple UI from partner.

UI demonstrably suggesting that bidding is correct is that
partner believed at the time her 3H bid was forcing.

UI demonstrably suggesting that passing is correct is that
partner now thinks you hold 5 spades, so raising to 4H may
see partner converting to a ridiculous 4S in a non-fit.

What is your legal logical alternative?

Best wishes
