    in today's i. It referred to "The resa May".

    "resa" can apparently mean "surrender" in Italian.

    Is the crossword compiler moonlighting as a journo and sneaking editorial comment into news stories? :eek:


    There's nowt like a good conspiracy theory to brighten up the day. Must go and find one... :rolleyes:

    The Faery Queen by her hawthorn can also be seen as a representation of an earlier pre-Christian archetype, reminding us of a Goddess-centred worship, practised by priestesses in sacred groves of hawthorn, planted in the round. The site of Westminster Abbey was once called Thorney Island after the sacred stand of thorn trees there.
    or:
    The May-tree for the Scots and Irish.
