This was such an obvious idea for a theme, I was surprised to find on Cruciverb.com that it hadn't been done. Had some luck in making the grid when BRITISHISMS fit right in without needing too much crosswordese surrounding it. I had a few other possible theme entries:

  1. Bloke's cane?
  2. Car part with a built-in solar panel?
  3. Head on a boat?
  4. Rent money?
  5. Very small French fries?
  6. Coins exchanged for audio equipment?

  1. CHAPSTICK
  2. SUN BONNET
  3. WATERLOO
  4. FLATBREAD
  5. MICROCHIPS
  6. MIKE PENCE

(The clue for 70-Across, "Beat people?", for COPS, was written by the editor.)
