Hi All A bit late but here we go again!!!!
I thought Ramblers challenge would present difficulties for setters but plenty rose to the bait.
Unfortuneately I do not think ABs quite grabs the worm.
One word clues are a marvel when they can be used especially if they lead to a multi-word answer.
The trouble with Oestragens is that it is a good answeer to the clue "Women Drivers" but flawed the other way round.
A one word clue must contain both definition and puzzling/cryptic surface reading at the "same time".
Oestragens is a definition no doubt which rules out any puzzle (when you know the answer you see a clever allusion but its the wrong way round) The crypt must be in the clue not the answer)
No doubt most of my friends and cronies will totall disagree with me but I do hope that some will see the point even if they think it doesnt matter.
My feeling is that examples of clever non-cryptics are popping up more and more in Clueless and Peer Review.
These are Cryptic Clue Comps But
Yours in Charity Thea
