  1. Doh! Colour me thick, I didn’t get it till the 2nd read through. I particularly like the place to hide the body, implying murder and dark deeds rather than justice being served, open and above board. (If you didn’t mean that, claim you did. It always looks good if people think you deep)


  2. Very good. I particularly like ‘fear x need’ and ‘anxiety (whip it up and don’t leave to rest)’. Christ’s Passion cleverly served up in a way that encompasses the whole awful tragedy.
