Comments on the clue
1.Nice idea but strict Ximeneanism requires 'eruption of ME'.
2.Cryptic reading needs "gets" I think
3.Cryptic grammar requires "gets"
4.Different and appealing but spoiled for me by nounal anagrind and (grammar) 'get' instead of 'getting'
5.Doubt "get" is an acceptable linkword (as opposed to "gets")
