Walking - 20 minutes
Not long till Shabbat, children have their Harry Potters, and after weeks and weeks of getting the whole Guardian quick crossword most days, and thinking I'm ready for the cryptic, I'm stuck on about nine clues of today's Quick...Economic theory favouring state control 12 letters...oh no, Anthony's just got that, collectivism, hurrah!; Join strands together - six letters; leader - knob on shield - four letters; and very puzzling Flower also called Star of David - eight letters and four letters. Anybody heard of a flower also called Star of David???? All I could find out on Google was that there is a flower in Israel whose cells under a telescope, amazingly, form a Star of David - but the letters don't fit the space. Persian buttercup?
