Bile in
bulk. Bodies
question the

atmosphere. 'Compelling'
evidence makes
front page

on historic
day. 'Let
me live'

and laugh.
Fresh talks
avoiding strike

averted. Stroke
emotion round
the nation.

Hurt economy.
Hunt monopoly.
Hmm: vy

Gloss marks
nerve. 'Return
to the

rock.' Over
ground. 'The
enemy of

all.' Cagey

vie for

the trophy.
Consume more.
'Downright trite.'

'One hand
higher than
the other.'

Dazed in
spite. 'Disparity
can breed

contempt.' 'A
stronger element
of cannibalism.'

Bloc won
nearly half.
Was then

tasked to
achieve bliss.
Personality ads

surrender. Friendly,
then attentive.

'Your face
type is
more in

demand.' 'Fallen
off the
back of

a lorry.'
Outdoor art.
Skydivers salute.

Drive off
into the
dawn. Grassroots

support undermined.
Eye navigation
set. Family

'History is
bunking off.'
Bunkers ahoy.

Top table
tag team
turnaround. Turnover

slumps. Utter
indifference hijacked.
'Nice images

of more-than-nasty
stuff.' Identify
outrage. Watch

nation's mood.
Take aim.
Turn over.

'Need a
pick-me-up?' From
atom to

bomb. 'A
peaceful cover.'
Ghostly and

derivative. Scissors
tear. 'What
was behind?'

'Really bad
news can
break your

heart.' Is
but banned.
Seek that

takeover. 'Our
clear right.'

'Super-prison moves
closer.' Comes
to fruition.

Impression to
clone. 'Across
all that

water.' Reaching
a truce.
Animated feet

win prize.
Call for

battle to
promote and
explain.' Brought

together. Dismissed
technology: 'science

Unveil abusive
plans. 'Nobody
has any

hope.' A
special engineer.
A thrusting

foot makes
eye-contact. 'Is
she back?'

'Not a
jot.' 'Hot
Shudder!' Pulled

out plug.
New mothers

world explain.

'Not just
entertainment.' 'Can
I light

up?' Gloom
grows. 'The
basement was

just rubble.'
Another list
of refusals.

Freedom for
information to
roam free.

'Please disclose
that open
evidence.' 'Try

to look
innocent.' Another
smug grin.

'This isn't

well. DNA
