Overseas France beginning to overthrow government (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

foreign

Here is my best explanation:

'overseas' is the definition.

('foreign' can be similar in meaning to 'overseas')

'france beginning to overthrow government' is the subsidiary indication.

'france' becomes 'f'.

'beginning to' indicates taking the first letters.

'government' becomes 'reign'.

The first letter of 'overthrow' is 'o'.

'f'+'o'+'reign'='foreign'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for foreign that I've seen before include "Unfamiliar; from abroad", "Exotic", "Extraneous", "Strange, from abroad", "strange", "Not native - maybe of Niger", "Of or from another country", "not appropriate", "Not domestic" and "Peculiar".)
