25th April – 1st May

This week I thought it would be a bit of fun to select our clue of the week. Nominations are now in, and you can start voting.
You can vote for one or more clues, results to be declared at 12 noon on Saturday 9th May. No prizes, and the editor’s decision on matters connected with the poll is final.

A disappointingly small vote sees the following results:
1st with 4 votes – What torments flesh or tail of pony? (8)
2nd equal with 3 votes – Stranded dinghy had broken down crossing river (4,3,3)
Small bonnet made of wild-pansy (4-2-5)
Unnamed person has to develop a raincoat wanted by everyone in Intelligence (15)
Please not that a small number of votes were cast after the closing date, at a time when I was unable to close the poll. I now have a logon to give me the ability to close it.
