            Think I've got it, but stymied by the wordplay, so I'll "keep me powder dry" for now.

              Deranged Hounslow laird got rid of upstart Prime Minister.

                Hounslow is correct.

                United -> U

                taking on

                Hereford, first -> H

                leg -> ON (as in 'leg side' in cricket)

                lacking pace -> SLOW

                      Going back to your last one I(o)T, how does "taking on" imply "putting in the middle of"?

                      Comment


                        I had it more as 'putting on around', because United (U) had the other letters going around it. You're right to point out that there's some ambiguity.
