Clegg: the omens

Jonathan Calder, in his Liberal England blog, has been making much of the Hammer film "Captain Clegg" in which the hero leads a gang of smugglers. Just recently, "Private Eye" correspondents have drawn attention to the Kleggs, a race of alien reptiles who kept a tyrant in power in 2000AD's "Judge Dredd" comic strip. In the current issue of PE, Cormac Purtill writes: "To take this disturbing parallel one step further, Judge Dredd only overthrew the tyrant with the help of Fergee, a monstrous figure who had made an unwelcome return to civilisation, some years after disappearing underground.

"I think we should all worry."
