    I found this puzzle more challenging than usual. It certainly worked my grey matter, and had me reaching for the dictionary and thesaurus.
    12a is my choice of a standout clue.
    Thanks David and bloggers.

      Yes – 12a was my favourite too. It’s a reverse cryptic clue (for want of a better expression) – which is something I’ve seen only once before in a Stickler. The “language abuse” question mark was definitely warranted.
      Also, the answer to 6d was only vaguely familiar to me. However, it very solvable via the wordplay.
