P.S. I thought of AB's "mordant" too, though it really ought to be a noun & not an adjective ("wit")!

Thought (and think) so too, but presumed if "sarcasm" fitted with other "a" then "mordant" might too.

Are you sure about the "l"? Ought to be something like Fascism (excuse that word).

Many thanks for "Toryism", Redcoral - I thought my first guess "Marxism" was a bit left-wing for the Times!!
Any ideas for the type of pigeon for 16d? *o*t*r
