please explain - Public servants at one in 5 down

"at one in (music)" = unison


Why Public servants? I can see it is an anagram of unions but???

So. trade union = unison. People playing music as one are in unison. fair enough.
Please forgive my little dig. Nothing personal meant. I tend to have a little rant now and again.

Terry,

No probs. Didn't take it as a dig, rather more a reminder, that if I want help with something, then I should supply the correct info first. It was my genuine mistake.

Now...

On to this week's Guardian Crossword ;)

Trevor,
I'm afraid the equation means nothing to me. Mind you if it explains how to convert the contents of my dustbin into chateau neuf de plonk I might make a bit of an effort.
