Justice after English blokes upset relative (7)


I believe the answer is:


'justice' is the definition.
(I have seen 'Vengeful justice ' mean 'nemesis' so perhaps 'justice' could also mean 'nemesis')

'english blokes upset relative' is the wordplay.
'english' becomes 'E' (abbreviation).
'blokes' becomes 'men' (bloke can informally mean a man).
'upset' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'relative' becomes 'sis' (short for sister).
'emen' written backwards gives 'neme'.

'after' is the link.

(Other definitions for nemesis that I've seen before include "Archenemy" , "Siemens (anag.)" , "Bane" , "Nee Miss (anag.)" , "Goddess of revenge - seems in (anag)" .)
