I was kind of expecting ten pages of moaning about the word "urban" but I guess it's safe in here. ;-)

Oh, and sorry to break the causal chain of cluing, but can anyone explain this clue from last week's i?

Who's anti-work? A difficult question (7)

_ _ P _ S _ R

I was pretty sure the first letter was 'O', so went for OPPOSER, with 'poser' being the 'difficult question' - but I'm not sure how the rest of the clue gives 'OP', or the definition?

OP is quite standard crossword-ese for 'work'. So OPPOSER is correct, with the definition being 'Who's anti-'.
