Article amongst electrics is going into decline (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

withering

Here is my best explanation:

'going into decline' is the definition.

'article amongst electrics' is the subsidiary indication.

'article' becomes 'the' (I've seen this before).

'amongst' indicates putting letters inside (I've seen this in other clues).

'electrics' becomes 'wiring' (I've seen this before).

'the' going inside 'wiring' is 'withering'.

'is' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for withering that I've seen before include "Supercilious" and "Devastating".)
