Hi Rosecart,
You saw the bleeding obvious and I did'nt!
I think the other one may be Putin as in PUT IN
but cannot think why or what the connection is.
Very many thanks and kind regards.

Rosecart,
What a diamond you are, Pugin is the correct
answer and I have completed the whole thing.
Thankyou once again.

Hi, Jerry,

You could be right with PUTIN as he partakes in judo - which could be the reference to fighter - and is also involved in the russian parliament.

Dear Puzzled,
Rosecart was quite correct,as 13a Liberal,say,with
political bias in style of delivery; answer is
LEG-SPIN
Thank you all the same

Hello Jerry and Colin,
Perhaps I should have added the following re Pugin:
Fighter = pug
Elected = in
and A.W.N. Pugin was an architect best known for his work on your Houses of Parliament after the fire of 1834 but also famous for his work with churches of many denominations.
