Rubbish time to dawdle around (7)


I believe the answer is:


'rubbish' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'time to dawdle around' is the wordplay.
'time' becomes 't' (abbreviation).
'to' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'around' indicates an anagram.
'dawdle' with letters rearranged gives 'waddle'.

(Other definitions for twaddle that I've seen before include "Balderdash" , "Foolish speech" , "Foolish words" , "Foolish speech/writing" , "Rubbish" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
