Mock judge always (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

jeer

Here is my best explanation:

'mock' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'judge always' is the subsidiary indication.

'judge' becomes 'j'.

'always' becomes 'eer' (poetic way of saying ever).

'j'+'eer'='jeer'

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for jeer that I've seen before include "Mock rudely", "Deride - mock", "Mock publicly", "Scoff, deride, mock", "ridicule", "Call out derisively", "Tease", "Catcall", "gibe" and "Boo".)
