Right to become affectionate when there's no time? (4,2)
I believe the answer is:
'right' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'to become affectionate when there's no time?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'to' is found in the answer.
'when' could be 'on' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'on' is found within the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for spot on that I've seen before include "Absolutely right" , "perfect" , "What the leading actor may have" , "Precisely what's required" , "Completely accurate" .)
