Ask questions here as freely as you like.
Update: And here are my confoundings.
11 across: Retreat to live in retirement with lucid star (5)
OK, I give up: how does this one work?
8 down: Faceless clergymen impound premier crooks (9)
How does the second part of the answer work?
12 across: Saw bloke by a channel, tatty (4-5)
And the first part of this clue works how?
2 down: How 8-down affliction finishes some 21 million Europeans? (7)
While I do know how this clue works, does anyone else take issue with the direct clue?
6 across: Quietly remains aligned with a Turkish leader (5)
I spent a long time not wanting to write the answer down because of what I saw as a plural/singular mismatch. Valid concern do you reckon?
