Go ahead and ask for assistance — DA will always leave you perplexed sooner or later.
Update: Darn right there were some perplexities!
9 across: Perhaps Underbelly suit shot a copper beforehand (9)
What’s the answer here? How does it work?
6 down: Elevated home, close to Geneva Lake (5)
How is this to be spelt? How is this to be solved?
8 down: Campaign spin (5)
So what’s the double definition?
5 across: Muscle backed detectives for hanging? (7)
3 down: Dry colours expressed UK poet (3, 6)
Can’t explain the first three letters on this one.
7 down: Cream from edges trimmed in cool fried snack (5, 4)
Again, we couldn’t work out exactly how this one was spelt, nor the explanation.
