'aeur no good if past this?' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot judge whether this works.

'yorkshire town accepting large fruit' is the wordplay.
'yorkshire town' becomes 'selby' (Selby is a town in North Yorkshire).
'accepting' is an insertion indicator (inserted letters are accepted).
'large' becomes 'L' (eg in clothes sizes).
'fruit' becomes 'date' (date is a kind of fruit).
'selby' going around 'l' is 'sellby'.

Can you help me to learn more?
