Well said Trevor. Claire and her chums in the DT club should hang their heads in shame. If they followed Kerry's example they might actually learn something and be able to finish this children's crossword sometimes.
What I can't understand is why Claire and co don't set up a website devoted exclusively to DT puzzles. Then they could have a whale of a time having the vapours over tenuous clues and wetting themselves over amusing ones. They could also have endless chats debating the mental state of the compilers. And best of all,the rest of us wouldn't have to put up with it.
Terry. Maybe we already have and maybe you just haven't found it. It's all good-hearted fun no-one should take themselves too seriously. There's no shame in being able to spell and punctuate properly even though these days it almost appears to be a mortal sin. I'm proud of having had a decent education and am not dumbing down for anybody. Innit.
