Guardian 25,931 / Paul

I think this is one of the easiest Paul puzzles I’ve solved – but no less enjoyable for that -  and, after yesterday, that’s perhaps a bit of a relief. Clues such as 20ac, 22ac, 25ac, 4dn, 18dn – and also 8,24ac -  give strong hints as to the authorship and provide a few smiles / sniggers. There are, as always, some inventive anagram and insertion indicators, ingenious constructions and witty surfaces. Many thanks, Paul!
