Answer: LAKE DISTRICT. The solution is an angram of TRAILS TICKED. In the context of the indication, you can check a list of hiking trails while crossing the Lake District. Another anegram that works well. I say (Ragas, man!) * as well and italic anagrinds in the indications. 2. Informant on the restrictive commune in Epping (4-7) 22. Surely the Chilean capital is somewhere in the Andes (5) Easier weather this week after the Toughie holiday on Monday and, overall, another good `one that offers a number of good indications and steady progress. Answer: ERELONG (i.e. „soon“). The solution is EL (for „the Spanish article“, i.e.
Spanish for „der“), ON (i.e. „on“) and G („golf“ in the phonetic alphabet), all of which are around or „start“ RE (i.e. „an“ or above – think email responses) like: E (RE) L-ON-G. I`ve been shooting about it for a while, and it seems like the best solution I can have, but I`m not really cock-a-hoop on top.

If the Setter had written „almost nobody“ in the index, then everything is sauce, because then „barely“ would indicate that no one would be abbreviated. Sounds like that`s a bad indication to me. Yellow card.) like this: (NO-ON) -D-AY. 46. Ring friend abroad about kit for art in Tokyo (7) Response: ABUSIVE (i.e. „offensive“). The solution is I`VE (i.e.: „this person“ – we`ve seen this sneaky pun lately: „this person“ is a contraction of „this person has“ (it doesn`t matter if the index no longer scans well as long as it hides what the Setter is playing); from the setter`s point of view, it corresponds to „I have“, what contracts to ev) „on“ or according to A (i.e.
