Friday already so it must be Phi and it is. The usual Phi standard with the one exception that I could never have got.
Yes I know, cue the rumblings about the poor education standards of today. No obvious themes or Ninas to me anyway.
5/6 Lady Hamilton – Nelson’s Mistress, LAD + YHA (Youth hostels) + MILTON
8 Antihero – (I another)*
10 Errand – E(mergency) R(oom) + RAND
11 Adhesive Tape – (I have pasted (packag)E)*
13 Labour – LA + (jo)B + OUR
15 Brunei – BI(sexual) about RUNE
16 Freudian Slip – (Is red painful)
20 Webern – As per usual a composer in a Phi Crossword. WEB +(som)E (furthe)R (elaboratio)N
21 Messmate – Just MESS and MATE I guess.
22/23 Treasury Tags – (USA strategy + R(ussia))*
1 Advice – AD + VICE
2 Salome – Well I suppose she did want John the Baptist’s head. AL in SOME (that’s some artist etc)
3 Cinema Organs – (American song)* Rather more a case of used to rather than may I’d have thought.
4 Sturgeon – SON around T + URGE
5 Lonsdale Belt – (Tells a blonde)*
7/12 Nunc Dimittis – Completely flummoxed by this I’m afraid, had to cheat and quite frankly I don’t see how this can be done without knowing the phrase.
Unfamiliar Latin phrases a real bugbear for me. Apparently from the Song of Simeon.
9 Epicureanism – (A1 Menu prices)*
14 Buffeted – BUFFET + DE rev (French “Of”). Not totally convinced myself on this though.
17 Demure – RUM rev in DEE
18 Sampan – SAN(e) around AMP
