27 across: M-males asleep, say? (7)
Fantastic two-step deciphering of asleep: m-males asleep = m-men in cot = comment = say.
11 across: Iced treat swamps carnival’s last safe ride, supposedly (5)
Very cute direct and indirect clue: iced treat swamps carnival’s last = vovo swamps l = volvo = safe ride, supposedly.
6 down: A-la running shoes, spiked? (5)
RC and I missed it, but it’s a goodie: a-la running shoes = laced = spiked.
19 down: Vocally condemn reduced volume (3)
A DA trademark: a clue whose sentence meaning makes you miss the polysemy of the words therein: reduced volume = book – k = boo = vocally condemn.
22 down: Conflict close to brawl, disrupting what 5-down (Media Watch) linked to 27 across (comment)? (5)
It’s easy, but it’s a very neat reference to what is perhaps Media Watch’s finest hour: close to brawl, disrupting what Media Watch linked to comment = l disrupting cash = clash = conflict.
19 across: Mimic Beckham finale in part? (4, 2)
Another easy one, but it’s too cute to not note: finale in part = end in bit = bend it = mimic Beckham.
