Most inactive and poorly during Second International (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stillest

Here is my best explanation:

'most inactive' is the definition.

('still' can be a synonym of 'inactive')

'poorly during second international' is the subsidiary indication.

'poorly' becomes 'ill' ('ill' can be a synonym of 'poorly').

'during' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'second' becomes 's' (common abbreviation).

'international' becomes 'test'.

's'+'test'='stest'

'ill' put within 'stest' is 'stillest'.

'and' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Another definition for stillest that I've seen is "Most calm".)
