Difficult puzzle today, had to look up the answers for quite a few...

"How some printers print nasty libel in paper?" = indelibly. If we could find a DY to go with 'libel in' we'd have an anagram.

"Energy in cell's up in about 30 years, probably next May" = General Election. Either this is very simple or very complex...

Many thanks.

2. A generation is 30 years so generation around llec (cell backwards containing e for energy. genera(lelec)tion.

Energy in cell's up(down clue?) = LeLEC
Antique dealers (and prob others)average out 30 years per generation - ie we've had it(syphilis?) in our family for ten generations = 300 years
