DOWN

1 DO PE Very good

2 YE (L) T SIN Very topical

3 UNCHAINED MELODY Jimmy Young etc

4 I N CITE

6 ACT OF PARLIAMENT Not fully understood. Liam = Noel Gallagher’s brother (Oasis) in ACT OF PARENT, not sure about stage musical. Nit-picker’s corner – a bill is the original proposal, the act is what’s finally passed. Has to be right, though.

12 I’M PATIENCE Gilbert & Sullivan operetta.

15 FLA(GRAN)T

17 ROASTER Very good, definition is chicken a for o in rooster

    I can see why there was a little confusion about 6 Down. Like Niall, I originally read ‘pop performance’ as ‘act of parent,’ whereas it’s actually more gender-specific, ‘act of pa,’ and the stage musical is a show called Rent, which I first came across in the trial of Louise Woodward, in which it emerged that she had been to see the show at least 20 times.
