Thanks, a bit of a struggle with these! Help, please!

1 Feeble Bob, vulnerable type (4,4) : L?M?D???  ( LAME DUCK )

24 Agency accepts alternative date for veto (6) : ?O?B??
8/27 Knockers going after Left forced into bankruptcy (4,4) : ??N?/?U?T

5 throng

9 hairdo

1 lame duck

24 Forbid - FBI, or d(ate)

Glad I could help, Matakari. I missed the second batch...

Question Author

Thanks, Toorak, Scorpiojo and NACW, I actually got these answers except 24 and 8/27 ( GONE BUST), but hesitated because I could not parse them. Eye Crossword is somewhat risqué here. My last two:

22 Cover back when pursued by party stand-in member (5): D?L?O  ( DIDLO )
15 Philip reportedly in no way back in charge (5) :  T?N?C

22 Yes, ***. Lid, cover, backwards and Do, party.

Tonic  - Not, reversed and IC, in charge. Philip sounds like Fillip, tonic

The answer to 22 could be defined as a stand-in/replacement member!

Question Author

Thanks, NACW! Excuse the typo in 22a, and again I got TONIC, but could not see the parsing. On to the Jumbo Crossword for a bit of amusement!

Thanks, Matakari - I wondered (afterwards) if your typo in 22 was deliberate, to avoid the AB filter!

Today's Jumbo was very enjoyable - and I don't think you'll need help(from here or anywhere else!).

Question Author

Closing this one, but would like a parsing for this:
29 Money taken by Republican buffoon – a common feature (5)G?A?S  
                                ( GRASS )


Thanks, Matakari. That Grass clue has been answered several times already. Grass is a common feature, a feature on a common, grassy area. I think it was G, grand, 1000, money, R, republican and then....buffoon.

Question Author

Merci beaucoup, NACW !

Thanks, Matakari - I think it might have been Toorak who parsed it(for others). I'd just stuck in the answer when I did the puzzle!

Do any of you have a link to the Jumbo crossword, please?

I've run out of crosswords.

Tilly2, I think it's only subscribers who can access links to the Times puzzles. I know Lie-in King sometimes helps out...
