DT 27858

Promised to go into a union (9) = AFFIANCED

Cryptic Definition. 

Favourite clue:

These describe Met lines as Boris found out (7) = ISOBARS

DT 27859

Last in and favourite clue because I like the word:

Put a stop to hoax? Endless nonsense (6) = KIBOSH

hoax = KID, endless = deletion, nonsense = BOSH

Found out = anagram (of as Boris), Met = Met Office not The Met Police!
AFFIANCED = betrothed

Double definition.

Glutton = PIG, guzzling = containment, remainder = REST, finishing off plate = E

DT 27861

Some tricky definitions:

Fan with no time for act (8) = SIMULATE

fan = STIMULATE, no time = delete T

DT 27862
