Can't help with 22a but, apart from that, I think you may have an error or two. My suggestions (in BOLD
) for the rest are:
1a Setting out with title stripped (7,3) s?a???g ?f? HEADING OFF
- check that "s"!
20a Speak indistinctly after knocking back one rum after another d?r??? MURMUR
- check the "d"!
26a Intend to make expert accept stance (7) ?r?p??? PROPOSE
7d Be passionate about Shine (6) l?s??? LUSTRE
14d a tense time ahead (6) ?a???e FUTURE
- check the "a"!
Hope that helps. Good luck!
