                                              T<RUE/GR>IT

                                              TIT = Jeremy Hunt ('Theresa in Trousers', recent source unknown but likely a Brexiteer Tory MP)

                                                where's ad hoc when you need him?

                                                Doesn't work for me- TIT is a very obscure acronym/abbreviation for Jeremy Hunt and double use of regret as both the clue for "rue" and the initial for GR

                                                  He's on holiday in Finland. I used regret only once as the synonym for rue. GR is a short form of great. Hunt's nickname is both current and all over the Brit media which is giving him blanket coverage to talk shite. The clue's fair (and was quickly solved)

                                                    ps 'initially' suggests not an acronym but that RUE comes before GR
