threw up. Athletics is facing
a worrying growth in

number. Signs up a new recuit.
Defiant deputy raises leadership
spectre. 'He's clearly recovered

picked minister. The woes of the
supermarket. The party
is abuzz.

a row.' 'Ignorance is
ignorance; no right to believe

anything can be
derived from it.' A

frankly, that it could
be improved on.'

How I wish it had been
worse. Joy in Jamacia as
England drubs an

audience. Over and out.
Expected to coast to a
third term. Didn't. Fat man

Not so retiring. Ally and sink.

Suspects are linked.

This roaring city has been hushed.
Third tunnel found. Bare-
knuckle fights caught on camera

the state ought to pay for his

sexual frustration'.

on junk. 'We must be prepared

for strike.' Said it was
considering a tax. The document
also warns of the consequences.

How I disfigured
the times modelling
the season's

menswear. Making
vast profits from

danger.' Lacks
critical thinking, sets

out new credo.

Who's on first? 'A second
resolution would have been
needed.' Defence is

bogus. Confessions of a
libertine. Government shared
the view. Shame game. Drink

limit. Benefits to bio-
diversity are 'reduced but not
eliminated'. Great artists of

the century.

bow. Tests to be
dropped. Offers 'historic

choice'. Attracting
heat. Ridiculed over
claims. Peers threaten

to revolt to

Delivered in kit form
by cosmic projectiles. The never-
ending tour. 'Sheer acidic

bite.' Plunged into. Coincidence? A
sacrilegious blow. Given free
hand. Two held over. Denies

paying to keep affair
secret. Tap water. Observes
fashion keeping the faith.

Suddenly and distressingly

Glimpsed in
a little-seen

panic. Era is over. Paris

and Washington find
common ground. Produce tempts
shoppers as sales surge. Hit by

Loose cannon. Whistle blower. Ecstasy.
Changed his central advice. Left
his job. (Opinion was produced

and handled. Must answer to
