|1.||Excellent clue. But I don't really like a=are, too 'crosswordy' for me!|
|2.||One of the better ‘leaders’ clues|
|3.||X found wanting = X is missing (something). You mean "leaders wanting are" in the wordplay which doesn't work in surface|
|Comments on the competition|
|Far too many went for the obvious ‘leaders’ anagram, and only 16 did anything interesting with it. Far too few tried a misleading definition, so those that did use one stood out.|
