One two three
ships out of
harbour. Sunny glass

separates religious hope
out into scattered
patterns. Dealt raw

deal by movers
and shakers. 'Too
lofty and original

to.' Extensive flexing
of an arm.

Bades history
sleep. Maps
show how

many killed.
Comic strips
swapped for

galley art.
'They pay
for everything.'

'Going, as
ever, to
the polls.'

'Puts the
grim episode
firmly behind.'

Takes on
net. How
many crossed

that threshold?
One two.

Take and
bake. Outdoor
communication. One

ahead. Step
fresh. Self-
harm: self-

confirmation: self-
explanatory surely.
Have your

say about
breakfast. Peel
off excess

layers with
confidence. Exploding
near the

Wipe my
candidacy. Set
all those

lovely dogs
off. Interrogate
these latest

refugees. Amusing
little anecdotes
pile up.

Other news

ups. Man,

dead, believed

Kings of
Europe ask
big. Parade

of Goats.
Suspended beaches
plan. Seedy,

seedy, seedy.
Last bottles
off the

line. The
list is
endless. Novel

putty, made
to make.

Another hit.
Yet another.
More friendlies

friendless. Stepping
back in
twilight. Criticised

in report.
Backfired in
getting across.

Labels label

your accumulated

knowledge. Yet

Get panic,
passive victim.
A row

behind. The
diet that
ate you

gambles all
to defy
fire. Fight

back. Back
fight. Oh

Discord in
reform. Beaten
for being

a witch.
Day of

laws. An

Six greatest
minutes locked
inside case.

Face hearing.
Behind the
time. Oil

for oil.
'Also keen
to retain

the club.'

A whole
lot of
crossings out.

Onslaught puts
choice at
risk. Police

fashion. Forced
fish. Unwarp
some great

gifts. 'Fiddling
around yet
again is

a diversion.'

Man on
top cold
warrior. Supplement

inside. Fraud
as complaint
against. 'Well,

that's sorted
then.' Slightly
more vitriolic

campaign. 'Bring
back the
bit hitters.'

Hit the
big time.

'. . . and its
famous sons.'
Wandering and

confused virtuoso
draws. Covered
in ice

and snow.
Below the
net. Forcibly

married off.
'A lot
of freedom

Divisible by
nothing: set
to protest,

to flee
to the
border. 'He

knew I
knew he
knew.' No

responsibility for
the content.

Intelligence not
always obtained
by torture.

Airspace available
for un-
rest. Shooting

estates. 'A
good use
of people's

money.' Fans
keep battling.
Perennial loser

robust individual.

Streets away
from fear.
Throttle hold

banks sharply.
Flies alone
at dinner.

'Something the
remoteness can't
elide.' A

step towards
sainthood retracted.
'Each of

his lines
logically follows
the last.'

Learning to
shed heaven.

Copies of
the book
attacked. 'Researched,

circumnavigated and
trampled.' 'The
way the

world sees.'
'Vision related
to what

is seen
in the
street.' Growth

could cramp
scores of
people. More

haven't been
identified than
have. Stones

definitely thrown.

Scuppered by
bid from
a gentle

man. Bloody
slapdown. The
hottest new

tour. 'Trained
on me.'
Hand spanned

career. Gets
the ghost.

An anthology
of crazed
claims. Extreme

feeding. Past
the buck.
Melt down

to the
crown. In
covert bid

to boost.
'A bargain
as God

is my
witness.' Study
alarms doctors.

Doctors get
help. Help
wanted. Wants

wanted. Desire
for a
bigger phone.

'The influx
of fifty
odd people

in a
constituency is
a godsend

these days.'
