You appear to have forgotten your own advice, Funt...

For correct navigation of this thread, follow this handy-dandy guide:

A. Someone says something about politics.
B. Someone (with a prominent fin) will say the problem is statism.
C. If you want to have a circular argument about statism, respond to B. Otherwise, respond to A.

Sorry, Shark. Like I've said before, i like you a lot but I already know your worldview in detail, and sometimes just want to join a discussion about important current affairs without it becoming all about your personal utopia yet again.  So I'm not biting any more (no pun intended).

A friend of mine was banging on recently about how the EU has done nothing for Ireland. A farmer's son. Whose newlywed wife is a Venezuelan refugee who got here through a European passport.

Against all the odds, I love the guy and he's a good mate.  The doublethink is strong in him though.

1. Guatemala
2. Machine Law
3. The Fall of Barbarbara Grimm.

Hard to choose between the first two; I agree that Guatemala could have had a less rushed conclusion but the Hershey scenes and the best bad guy in years did it for me.

The Fall... was a lovely bit of old-fashioned, citizen's-POV Dredd. More of this kind of thing please.

Never look at comments on thejournal.ie. It's proof if proof were needed that Ireland is every bit as full of total c*nts as everywhere else. Worse, actually, because we really should know better.

Aye. Irish illegals in the US should get a special amnesty, apparently, but anyone who dares to come into our own country even legally can fuck off.  Whenever we start patting ourselves on the back too much about the abortion and same-sex-marriage referendums, the Journal's comments are always there to bring us back down to reality.

Just did the draw (writing the initials on 20c coins, shaking them all up, and drawing three).

The two runners-up, who'll get a decorative Dredd-face plate:


The overall winner, who'll get a Dredd plate AND, thanks to EddieHitler, a copy of Michael Carroll's Judges Vol 2, signed by the author:


PM me your addresses (and real names of course), and Eddie and I will get on the case.  Thanks for taking part; I think I had more fun with it than anyone who entered!  Might do another some time.

The answers:

ACROSS 1. Orlok, 3. Satanus, 5. Rotten, 7. Judge Child, 10. Mean Machine Angel, 13. Father Earth, 15. Chopper, 17. Fargo, 18.  Sadu, 19. Armitage, 21. Giant, 22. Silver, 23. DeMarco, 24. Snork.

DOWN 2. Kenny Who (I hope you noticed the '?' in the clue), 4. Sardini, 6. Tweak  7. Judge Mortis , 8. Judge Dredd, 9. Link Angel OR Fink Angel*, 11. Nero Narcos, 12. Sabbat, 14. Hershey, 16. Otto Sump, 20. Grice.

*It was originally Link - the word 'connection' being part of the clue - but there's no way Fink could be considered a wrong answer either.

Was just thinking of that article when I saw your post. Truly sickening.  Landlords are fucking people over blatantly but we've swallowed the divide and conquer pill so it's the foreigners' fault.

Just a quick reminder - if you finished the crossword and want to be in with a chance of winning a prize, either pm me a screenshot of the finished crossword or send it as an email attachment to creepticcrossword@Gmail.com.  I'll be picking the winners tomorrow afternoon.

Prize details are in the Advent Calendar thread.

I've been watching Alan Partridge outtakes. He's pointed out something I'm ashamed to say had never occurred to me. 'The Brothers Gibb. The B.G.s. The Bee Gees!'

I've always known that. Pity it's not actually true.

From wikipedia...

In August 1958, the Gibb family, including older sister Lesley and infant brother Andy, emigrated to Redcliffe, just north-east of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. The young brothers began performing to raise pocket money. They were introduced to Brisbane radio presenter jockey Bill Gates by speedway promoter and driver Bill Goode, who had hired the brothers to entertain the crowd at the Redcliffe Speedway in 1960. The crowd at the speedway would throw money onto the track for the boys, who generally performed during the interval of meetings (usually on the back of a truck that drove around the track) and, in a deal with Goode, any money they collected from the crowd they were allowed to keep. Gates renamed them the BGs (later changed to "Bee Gees") after his, Goode's and Barry Gibb's initials. The name was not specifically a reference to "Brothers Gibb", despite popular belief.

I see. You learn and unlearn something new every day.

Just realized I've been misspelling taut as taught, though. Oh well, you live and learn.

Not to worry,  this is great stuff as always.

I must be the only person ever who quite enjoyed Kola Kommandos.  I loved the golf course / advertising thing on the moon, and the poetically introspective CT Hall (I hadn't seen Blade Runner back then).  Shame about the big barrier to Hector's new love life but it was a nicely imperfect 2000ad ending.

He's the Sabbat Head, essentially. With less charm and wit.
