1. British to dump insane but not stupid clots (7)– Thrombi?
(anagram of “British to dump” without “stupid” gives thrombi –clots)

2. Marvellous! It’s hidden (3,2,5)- Out of sight?
(Means both marvellous and hidden)

3. An informal, yet intensive, discussion can take place around endless walks (4-2) – Talk-in?
(“Can” = “Tin” around endless walks- “alk” gives Talk-in – informal discussion)

4. Whips grow weary with each one coming back to earth (8) - Flagella?
(Flag – grow weary, with “each one”- “all” coming back-lla, to Earth – e = flagella, whips)

5. Communist Party and Hungary embrace in agreement about an empty tomb (8)- Cenotaph?
(CP (Communist Party) + H (Hungary) around “atone” (embrace in agreement) about- enota, gives “cenotaph” an empty tomb.

Many thanks again, Jolan.

Just three to offer:

1. Thrombi - subtractive anagram - my favourite
2. Out of sight - double definition
3. Talk-in (can=tin) around (w)alk(s)

A lot of head-scratching but fun as always.
Thanks jolan x

"AT ONE" in #5 is probably better than "ATONE" - I didn't see that.
