Hello. Mostly straightforward though a few toughies. And one that has me baffled. I’m sure I know the answer but, for the most part, I don’t know why.
The clue is ‘ most substantial course is something involving blackbirds? Allow opposition. ‘(5,2,10)
I confident with the letters I have that the answer is “piece de resistance, which both fits and works with the meaning. Having said that, I’m stumped as to the rest of the clue. Help and guidance gratefully welcomed
