6d is "Representative Tim became sick embracing Labour's leader" 10. The answer must be diplomatic but how do you get there? A representative is a diplomat but Labours leader is L and I can't see where Tim comes into it. Thanks
Emblematic....anag Tim became +L (labour leader)
Many thanks. I've solved the whole crossword but can't see why 25a "Brown accepting alternative work backing is 'organised persecution'" is pogrom. Pogrom is the organised persecution but can't see how the rest of the clue fits.
19 d "one mad to give you head after noon, say?" is nutter. Ok one mad is a nutter and a nut is a head but where does the afternoon fit in ? Ie how do you get ter? So annoying when you get the answer but can't see why!
19d: Say = UTTER after noon = N

25a: (Gordon) Brown = PM

Alternative = OR

Work = GO

ORGO backing = OGRO in PM

Cruciverbalist I take my hat off to you- I would never have got the explanation to 25a in a month of Sundays
