Short clue: Tale
Answer: Label (as confirmed in the Mail's answers)
Although I can see how the answer would fit the cryptic clue I have been unable to find an explanation for the short clue.

Hi Sue. As no-one had responded to your post, I thought that I might come to the aid of a damsel in distress and have used three different dictionaries - one of which was Chambers - and, like you, cannot understand why 'label' would be the answer to 'tale'. I have also used Roget's Thesaurus and, under 'label' there is no reference to 'tale'. It will be interesting to see whether anyone else posts a response as I am as bemused as you are. Best wishes, Caravaggio.

I came up similarly empty-handed. Are we all agreed this is just a pants clue and best forgotten forthwith?

I am as bemused as Caravaggio on this one. Maybe the clue is a misprint, (should have read "tab" or "tag")?

Dear All,

I thought I had lost it when I could not work this one out but I see we have a s*** compiler instead.

Regards

Royston
