Crossword blog: a cryptic Twitter list

Thanks for your suggested replacement clues for the Campaign for Real Ale’s Derby Drinker magazine. If you missed this rare appearance of crosswords in the headlines, there was a brief storm over 7d and 18d in the magazine’s current puzzle: My own 7d, for what it’s worth, is “Doctor, go! Nurse, we need someone to operate (7)”. Trickier is 18d – I would be tempted by something along the lines of: “Mr Daggins is an idiot (5)” (definition attested in the OED), but perhaps that’s just irritating. I prefer yours for both, anyway. Camra’s national executive is conducting an investigation. I hope that this is done with a knowledge of how crosswords in general work. What, reader, do you make of it all? Something worse? The Guardian stable: Other cryptic setters: Commentators, editors, publishers etc:
