Comments on the clue
1.'With' acts as a connector between two halves, redundant, and not seamless
2.'with' – ?
there should not be superfluous words separating the clues
3.A very good clue but for using 'with' as a link word to the 2nd clue – not allowed in this month's comp .
4.Don’t think the connector “with” is allowed 31
