I had to break it down after I had got it. Was a bit of a stinker today. Two or three had me puzzled and the (WHOLE)parse for 4d still has me confused.

I also have the same. went with 'shallies' as its the present tense of 'going out' instead of the past tense.

I also have 'ubiquity'
I see U(posh) + I quit. But where does 'BY' come into it ?

The letter U is often clued by "posh" or "upper-class" in cryptic crosswords.
