      Good question, Polly! Normally, I find that when I’ve solved a cryptic clue, I know I’ve got the right answer – it’s obvious once you solve it. With this one, I’m not 100% convinced this answer is correct as the link with the clue seems less than certain. Rather than hold up putting the whole solution online, I thought I’d publish it this way and correct it later if necessary once I’d ‘slept on it’. I think this is only the 2nd time I’ve had to do this in many years of crossword solving.

      Thanks for your comment, I hope the question mark hasn’t inconvenienced you!

        I have removed the question mark – on reflection the answer can’t be anything else! Still not convinced about ‘slug’ as a verb meaning ‘use hardly any energy’ though…
