i Cryptic Crossword 1107 by Dac

August 27, 2014

Dac always provides lovely smooth surface readings, and this week they featured some particularly fine misdirections.  The original blog, which you may find here, has comments drooling over one such in 11d, but for me the best example was 5 across:

High-flier, one at college wanting a career shortly (6)

Btw, surely ‘be’ for ‘are’ in 20ac requires a Westcountry dialect “You be right, my luvver” kind of thing?  I seem to remember this being railed against in the past, but here the much-loved and respected Dac got away with it!
