A storm with a fiscal twist this week, in honour of Joe's Budget. Instead of the usual clue-fest, the challenge is more about manipulation and imagination. Pick a word or name that contains a T, then budge that T to create a new entity.
Don't think CARTE > CARET, or TRAP > RAPT, but more along the lines of TAIPAN > AIPANT (excellent slacks), or PETER SINGER > PEER STINGER (tightwad ethicist).
Here's my opening BUDGE-T Brigade:
ERRAPINT = bungled bar order
MASER PLANT = microwave factory
SAND BY MET = bus-stop beach strategy
DOLLY PATRON = girly-girl
