MILLIONS of Britain’s elderly are
reliant on a basic state pension of
just £7,000 a year to pay the bills
and live in retirement.
A worrying report reveals that for the
poorest pensioners, £3 in every £4 of their
income comes from the state as pension.
And the state contribution rises to almost £9
in every £10 when other benefits are included.
Now concerned experts are urging workers to
prepare for their old age by saving into a
private pension to top up their state money.
Keith Richards, chief executive of The
Personal Finance Society, said: “This is a stark
warning to those who have not made enough
pension provision for later life.”
Mr Richards said failure to save into a
pension scheme means “poverty in older age is
a sad inevitability”.
He added: “Even saving a modest amount
every month will grow into a decent pot over
the years – inflation is rising at historically high

North and South Korea to thaw
relations over Winter Olympics
9pAf_e@e^_Xd;\]\eZ\<[`kfi
RELATIONS eased between North and
South Korea yesterday after the first faceto-face talks in more than two years.
The Winter Olympics helped produce the
thaw as the North promised to send a delegation to next month’s spectacle in South
Korea which will include athletes, cheerleaders and officials.
Teams from North and South may march
together at the opening ceremony in a
display of reconciliation.
An emergency hotline shut in February
2016 is to be reopened today and both sides
have agreed to further talks.

There have been fears that North Korean
dictator Kim Jong-un is trying to drive a
wedge between the US and South Korea.
But yesterday a US spokesman said
North Korean participation in the Olympics would be “an opportunity for the
regime to see the value of ending its international isolation by de-nuclearising”.

Unity minister Cho Myung-Gyun, left, with
Ri Son Gwon. Right, dictator Kim Jong-un
rates and paying into a – preferably – indexlinked pension should help to offset the
ravages of inflation.”
Malcolm McLean, of pension advice firm
Barnett Waddingham, said: “Reliance on
the state pension on its own will never give
the vast majority of people in this country
anywhere near the standard of living most
would aspire to in their later years.”
He said it is “vitally important” that everyone of working age takes steps to obtain a
private pension wherever possible.
The analysis, by the Pensions Policy Institute and sponsored by Age UK, shows those
in the middle of the income distribution get
more than half their income – 53 per cent –
from the state pension, rising to 61 per cent
when benefits are included.
Former pensions minister Baroness Altmann said: “There’s a prevalent idea that all
pensioners are well off and have plenty of
money, while younger generations struggle.
Actually, this is a myth – many pensioners
live on very low incomes.”
Newly retired people rely
less on their state pension
than older pensioners
but as they age these
younger
pensioners
become more dependent on it too as
inflation bites into
incomes and any paid
work stops.
For example, those

South Korea said it is ready to lift some
sanctions temporarily so North Koreans
can visit the Olympics at Pyeongchang,
about 60 miles from the border.
But after 11 hours of talks between
officials, North Korea, which detonated its
sixth and largest nuclear bomb in
September, lodged “a strong complaint”
because
Seoul
proposed
talks
to
de-nuclearise the Korean peninsula.
Pyongyang’s chief negotiator Ri Son
Gwon said: “All our weapons including
atomic bombs, hydrogen bombs and
ballistic missiles are aimed only at the
United States, not our brethren, nor China
and Russia. This is not a matter between
North and South Korea, and to bring up
this issue would cause negative conse-
born in the 1930s received 30 per cent of
their income from the state pension at age
65 rising to 44 per cent by age 74. In 2016, a
new single tier state pension was introduced, marginally above the level of Pension
Credit, and is currently £159.55 per week at
its full rate. The amount you get depends on
your National Insurance record.
In 2011 the triple lock was implemented,
which increases both the basic state pension and new state pension each year by the
higher of the growth in average earnings,
the Consumer Prices Index or 2.5 per cent.
However, the triple lock has only been guaranteed to the end of this parliament.
Caroline Abrahams, of Age UK, said:
“With more than 1.9 million older people living in poverty it’s far from ‘job done’ when it
comes to ensuring everyone has a decent
income in retirement.
“Many people are surprised to learn that
the average state pension is only just over
£7,000 per year – less than half the annual
salary of a full-time working adult on the
minimum wage of £7.50 an hour.”
The Department for Work and Pensions
said its reforms are “setting millions of people on the path to a financially secure retirement”. A spokesman added: “By introducing the triple lock and protecting the
poorest through Pension Credit, we have
reduced pensioner poverty close to historically low levels. But there is still
more to do to ensure that people are
building up private pensions savings
which is why we are increasing automatic enrolment contributions in April
2018 and April 2019 and have just
announced a package of measures to
make sure that even more people benefit from a workplace pension.”

PRINCE Harry’s fiancee Meghan
Markle delighted fans yesterday by
wearing a £45 Marks & Spencer
sweater.
The wool-blend, round-neck bellsleeve sweater quickly sold out last
night, providing a much-needed boost
to the high street giant.
The US actress, who wore a £56,000
dress for her engagement photos, chose
the modest high street look as she
accompanied the fifth in line to the
throne on a visit to a radio station in
Brixton, south London.
With her hair up casually, she teamed
it with a £585 camel Brando coat by
Canadian brand Smythe, old Burberry
trousers and a Jigsaw scarf.
Meghan, 36, won plaudits for her
understated look on a visit to the radio
station Reprezent in the deprived,
predominantly black neighbourhood.
The royal bride-to-be was hailed by
an excited crowd and blew kisses to
screaming fans.
During a light-hearted exchange
radio station manager Adrian Newman
told Harry they had a question for him.
“She answers the questions,” Harry
shot back. She and Harry had asked to
visit the radio station, which has been
operating in Brixton for 15 years.
In a week that has seen the BBC’s
China editor Carrie Gracie resign over
its gender pay gap, Harry and Meghan
spoke out in favour of equality.

They met YV Shells, 24, a disc jockey
who is studying to be a doctor. He has
become a champion of women’s rights
and said later he was “spun” that
Meghan introduced herself and said
she had heard about his passion for
gender equality.
Meghan said: “I think your attitude is
incredible. Good for you.”
Harry added: “As males we have to
do our part or it’s not going to work.”
DJ Remi Aderemi, 24, got Harry to
have a go at her trademark fist pump
involving complicated hand gestures,
while another DJ, Jevanni Letford,
cheekily slipped Harry his business
card in the hope the couple might be
looking for someone to play music at
their wedding in Windsor on May 19.
The station has nurtured talent
including grime star Stormzy and its
training programme for young talent
has helped more than 4,000 young
people so far, with another 3,000 on the
waiting list.
Outside the crowd raved about
Meghan after the couple, who stayed
an hour and 10 minutes, 25 minutes
longer than expected, went on a brief
walkabout to chat to fans.
Foster carer Sharley Watson, 55, who
had braved the cold for hours, said:
Meghan gives a cute
wave then reveals the
sweater, left, which had
sold out by last night
“It’s good to see Meghan in Brixton.
Hopefully, she will want to help areas
like it.”
Also there were American students
Jennifer Martinez, 20, and Millicent
Sasu, 19, from Baltimore. Jennifer said:
“She’s black, she’s white, she’s an
actress, she’s American. She brings a bit
of everything and has so many different
qualities. She brings such a lot to the
table.”
lMeghan has closed down her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts
because they “haven’t been used for
some time”, Kensington Palace said. In
December she had 1.9 million followers
on Instagram, 350,000 on Twitter and
800,000 likes for her Facebook page.

Ecuador tries to oust Assange
from embassy after five years
WIKILEAKS whistle-blowing
website founder Julian Assange
could be kicked out of Ecuador’s
London embassy after angering
its president.
The South American country
said his five-year stay in its
diplomatic building was now
“untenable” – having previously
indicated he could remain
as long as he wanted.
Yesterday it was
reported that, for the first
time, Ecuadorean
authorities want a third

party to broker a settlement with
Britain regarding his future.
Foreign Minister Maria
Fernanda Espinosa said Ecuador
was “considering and exploring
the possibility of mediation” to
end the “untenable” situation.
She added in the capital Quito:
“No solution will be achieved
without international
co-operation and the
co-operation of the UK,
which has also shown
interest in a way out.”
Assange, 46, has
infuriated Ecuador’s leader
Lenin Moreno by criticising his
allies in Spain’s government and
backing Catalan independence.
In reply, Assange tweeted: “If
President Moreno wants to gag
my reporting of human rights
abuses in Spain he should say so
explicitly – with the legal basis.”
Moreno had previously pledged
to uphold the activist’s asylum
“as long as we assume his life
may be in danger”.
Assange originally holed up in
the embassy in June 2012 to
avoid arrest over sex charges in
Sweden. They were later dropped
but he now fears being extradited
to the US for leaking documents.

THERESA May hailed a “new generation” of rising Tory stars yesterday
after completing her reshuffle.
The Prime Minister promoted a
string of female and ethnic minority
MPs to junior frontbench roles in a
drive to make her Government “reflect
the country it serves”.
And she strengthened her team
leading the effort to pull Britain out of
the EU by appointing an extra minister at the Brexit department.
Suella Fernandes, previously the
leader of an influential group of Eurosceptic backbenchers, was handed
the role in a move that cheered Brexit
supporters on the Tory benches.
Other female MPs promoted on the
second day of the reshuffle included
Caroline Dinenage, Margot James,
Harriett Baldwin, Lucy Frazer and
Nusrat Ghani.
Mark Garnier – recently cleared of
allegations of inappropriate behaviour after being caught up in the
Westminster sex harassment scandal
– was sacked as trade minister.
Downing Street sources insisted
the scandal surrounding Mr Garnier
had nothing to do with his departure.
Robert Goodwill, who had been an
education minister, was also axed in
the reshuffle.
And junior ministers John Hayes
and Philip Dunne resigned yesterday,
giving up jobs in the transport and
health briefs respectively.
D`efi`k`\j
Mrs May said she wanted to build
a country “that truly works for everyone, with a stronger economy and a
fairer society”.
As she completed her New Year
reshuffle last night, she added: “It also
allows a new generation of gifted ministers to step up and make life better
for people across the whole UK.”
However, some Tories were concerned that experienced male ministers were being unfairly sacrificed in
the positive discrimination drive.
Tory MP Philip Davies said there
was “a legitimate concern that some
people may feel they have been hoofed
out or not promoted simply because
they are a white male”.
Downing Street rejected Mr Davies’s criticism of the reshuffle, saying
it was “absolutely not” the case that
ministers were being chosen for the
axe because they are male and white.
The Prime Minister’s spokesman
said: “This is a reshuffle intended to
build a team which can take on the
challenges this country faces and
deliver on the Government’s priorities
of housing, school standards, NHS
improvement and environment.”
He added: “It’s important the
Government reflects the country it
represents. It is also important the
country has a government that can
deliver for the British public.”
MPs from ethnic minorities joining
Bid to head
off Tory MP
Brexit revolt
MINISTERS sought to take the
heat out of a Tory revolt over
Theresa May’s Brexit plans last
night by tabling a series of
amendments to her flagship
EU (Withdrawal) Bill.
They proposed changing
clauses that had triggered
criticism from MPs that the
Government was attempting to
assume sweeping powers for
altering regulations without
consulting Parliament, the
so-called “Henry VIII powers”.
The Bill returns to the
Commons for more crunch votes
next week before being debated
in the House of Lords.
Ministers insisted they are
listening to backbench concerns.
One of the proposed
amendments seeks to put a limit
on the use of the powers.
An extension of three months
after Brexit would be granted for
people wishing to launch court
cases over alleged breaches of
the general principles of EU law.
Another amendment states
that devolved administrations in
Scotland, Wales and Northern
Ireland would have to consult
with the UK Government, rather
than seeking its consent, before
using their “correcting powers”.
Brexit minister Steve Baker
said: “We’re showing the
seriousness with which we take
Parliament’s views.”
ministerial ranks yesterday included
Rishi Sunak, Nadhim Zahawi and
Shailesh Vara while Alok Sharma and
Sam Gyimah were promoted.
Other rising stars promoted yesterday included Dominic Raab, Jo Johnson and Stephen Barclay.
In a signal of her determination to
stamp out tolerance of sexual harassment at Westminster, the Prime Minister appointed a string of women to
the whips office. They included Kelly
Tolhurst, Mims Davies, Amanda Milling, Jo Churchill and Wendy Morton.
But Mrs May faced further criticism
from some Tories last night.
One MP said the shake-up, which
dragged on as some ministers resisted
job shifts, was “the worst reshuffle I
have ever witnessed”. Another backbencher said: “She ended the year in
not a bad place, to the point where
she was making a virtue of her ability
Row over EU giving
Seeking legal advice... David Davis
DAVID Davis has attacked a Brussels
threat to punish British business
ahead of the Brexit trade talks.
The Brexit Secretary has written to
Theresa May raising concerns about
EU planning for a “no deal” giving
Britain “third country status” in what
appears to be an act of bad faith.
Mr Davis told the Prime Minister he
would urge the EU to drop measures
that could require UK firms to relocate to Europe or risk contracts being
terminated in the event of no deal.
He said he had sought legal advice
but the chances of a successful challenge were “low” and could be “high
risk politically and financially”.
But he said he would urge the European Commission’s Brexit taskforce
to withdraw the statements in light of
the deal reached last month to start

Mrs May chaired the first meeting

“third country” after March 2019, with
no reference to a future trade deal.
The guidance says “compliance
activity”, such as quality control of
goods, “would need to be based” in
the EU or European Economic Area.
Other statements on legal services
and the transport industry do not
take into account a transition period
or trade deal, he said.
Mr Davis called the moves “potential breaches of the UK’s rights as [an
EU] member state” and insisted “we
cannot let these actions go unchallenged”. John Longworth of Leave
Means Leave, who will meet EU chief
negotiator Michel Barnier with a business delegation today, added: “The
EU’s negotiating team is looking
increasingly out of step with the mood
of many of the EU27 national governments who recognise the importance
for their own economies that a free
trade deal is reached with the UK.
“I will urge Mr Barnier to ensure
that this is rectified and reflected in
future negotiations.”
l Mr Barnier yesterday signalled that
he is preparing to allow EU access to
Britain’s financial services industry
after Brexit, telling business leaders
in Brussels he wants the bloc to be
able to recognise British law. In the
past he has said current “passporting
arrangements” would end.

Alzheimer’s clues before symptoms appear
SCIENTISTS yesterday hailed a
major breakthrough in combating
Alzheimer’s disease after reportedly
finding the key to diagnosis before
symptoms strike.
The US team found by injecting
fluorescent dyes into patients they
were able to spot toxic proteins that
clump together in the brain to cause
the deadly condition.
The dyes, injected into mice
during initial experiments, successfully helped identify rogue proteins
even before the disease took hold.
Similar tests on human brain
tissue donated by patients who
had died of the disease were also
successful.
Once the dyes have been inserted
into the brain, researchers use an
imaging and scanning technique
called Positron Emission Tomography to identify the mutant cells,
known as amyloid beta. Professor
9pDXibI\pefc[j
William DeGrado, of California
University in San Francisco, where
the study was carried out, said:
“Our studies show the immediate
need for clinical PET probes that
can detect a broader spectrum of
pathological amyloid beta
strains.
“Probes that are
more sensitive will
result
in
earlier
Alzheimer’s disease
detection, providing a longer time
frame for therapeutic interventions in
mild, or even subclinical, patients.”
Earlier detection
Dr Carol Routledge
...proteins hold key
of Alzheimer’s would mean more
effective therapies for preventing its
onset and development.
Last night, UK research bodies
welcomed the findings, which
were published in the journal
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Dr Carol Routledge, of Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “Stopping
or slowing the progression of
Alzheimer’s disease is critical
and key to doing this is understanding how different forms
of toxic proteins spread
through the brain.
“The build-up of amyloid is
one of the first changes in
Alzheimer’s, but why it happens and how it spreads is still
not fully understood.
“The important tools developed in this study provide insight
into different forms of amyloid
in the brain. Although initial results
in mice provide useful insights
into the mechanisms of the disease,
they must be followed up with studies in people.
“Improving our ability to track
different forms of amyloid will
provide a greater understanding of
Alzheimer’s and, with more development, could help to predict how a
person’s Alzheimer’s may progress
in future.”
There is no known cure for Alzheimer’s, which causes nerve cell
death and tissue loss throughout
the brain.
During the course of the disease,
the brain shrinks dramatically,
affecting nearly all its functions.
In the UK, about 850,000 people
suffer from dementia, costing the
NHS £26billion a year.
In most cases, by the time patients
are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s the
disease has already progressed to a
severe stage.
In a separate study, researchers
found that a hormone produced
while we sleep could hold the key
to healthy ageing and staving off
Alzheimer’s completely.
Melatonin, known as the sleep
hormone, regulates the body’s biological clock.
A review of previous studies found
taking
melatonin
supplements
may boost the body both physically
and mentally, helping to fight off
illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and dementia.
Dr Nava Zisapel, of Tel Aviv
University, Israel, where the review
was conducted, said: “Poor sleep
quality is associated with increased
risks of cardiovascular, metabolic
and cognitive diseases as well as
poor quality of life and increased
risks of death.”

SERIOUS avalanche warnings
have been issued after snowfall
trapped 13,000 tourists in an
upmarket Swiss ski resort.
All roads and the only rail line

Power supply is intermittent
and holidaymakers were unable
to leave due to an “exceptional”

“Arrivals and departures to and

A
GARDENER
charged
with
murdering an 80-year-old grandmother at an allotment was known
to be aggressive and volatile, a court
heard yesterday.
Rahim Mohammadi, 41, had
previously alarmed other plotholders by being “threatening,
intimidating
and
sometimes
physically violent”, a jury was told.
Mohammadi is said to have killed
widow Lea Adri-Soejoko, the secretary of the association which ran the
allotments, and locked her in a shed.
It is claimed he savagely battered
her then strangled her with a lawn
mower cord to prevent her from
telling police about the assault.
Five months earlier he had
allegedly clashed with Mrs AdriSoejoko after she told him to shut up
at the association’s annual general
meeting, calling her a “******* bitch”
before storming out.
Prosecutor John Price, QC, told
the Old Bailey that Mohammadi had
shocked other plot-holders and
distressed the secretary so much she
was wary of him ever afterwards.
Mr Price said: “He has shown himself very sensitive to any perceived
slight, however minor, and is quickly
aroused to behave in a way others
have found frightening.
“He is also capable of recovering
his poise just as quickly and sometimes even of apologising. He is
exceptionally long way. Exposed
buildings and exposed parts of
transportation routes are
endangered. Extensive safety
measures are to be maintained.
“Without question, it is
inadvisable to engage in ski
touring, freeriding and
snowshoe hiking outside
marked and open pistes.”
A reconnaissance flight is
planned as regional officials
decide how to proceed after six
feet of snow in just one day. An
official said residents had been
warned to keep their window
shutters closed and that while
no evacuation had yet been
ordered, the situation “is being
monitored every half hour”.
A number of other villages
were also isolated after high
winds, mud and rockslides.
Tignes, in the French Alps,
has had more than five feet of
snow in the past 48 hours.
Gardener accused of killing
allotment gran ‘was volatile’
temperamentally volatile.” Mr Price
said Iranian-born Mohammadi’s
outbursts had been overlooked in
the past.
But he said there was no chance of
him getting away with the assault
allegedly committed last February in
which Mrs Adri-Soejoko suffered a
fractured spine, two broken ribs and
a bruised face and arms.
The victim was dedicated to the
allotments in Colindale, North
London, and lived nearby with her
granddaughter Amber Tomlinson.
Ms Tomlinson said her grandmother was fit and independent but
had been affected by the row at the
AGM in September 2016 at which
“passionate” plot holders were “talking over each other”.
She said: “My understanding was
that Rahim had been louder than the
rest so my grandma said, ‘Shut up’,
so she could chair the meeting, to
which he took offence. He became
heated and shouted at her. One of
the insults was he called her a ‘*******
bitch’.
“She was concerned. She told me
not to tell the rest of the family about
the incident. It was inferred that she
didn’t want them to worry.”
The court heard that before the
AGM, Mohammadi and Mrs AdriSoejoko had been friendly and he
was known to her as “Little Puppy”.
But after the bust-up she allegedly
felt unsafe around him and began to
distance herself from him.
Tyrone Smith, QC, defending, suggested Mohammadi had used the
word “witch”, not “bitch”, in the row.
The court also heard there had
been problems at the site including
plot-holders
making
allegations
against each other, drinking, noise,
theft and rubbish-dumping.
Mohammadi, of Bethnal Green,
East London, denies murder.
The trial continues.

Principal Stephanie Gill...ban
TEACHERS at a leading all-female
school have been ordered not to refer
to its pupils as girls.
The ban is said to be to avoid
upsetting youngsters who are questioning their gender.
And it comes despite the word
featuring in the single-sex school’s
name: Altrincham Grammar School
for Girls.
The school, in Trafford, Greater
Manchester, confirmed that the term
will no longer be encouraged when
staff address the pupils.
Principal Stephanie Gill said she
wants to break what she describes as
“ingrained habits in the way pupils
are spoken to and spoken about”.
She wrote to parents: “We have
moved to using gender neutral language in all our communications with
students and parents. We know that
9pAXe;`jc\p
for many transgender students being
misgendered can be very hurtful.”
The school, which first opened its
doors in 1910, educates 1,350 girls and
was recently lauded as the best in the
North-west of England
All of its students were awarded
A*-C grades in last year’s GCSE
exams and it is the largest single-sex
grammar school in England.
One parent, who asked not to
be named, said: “When I opened
the letter I wasn’t sure if it was a joke
or not.
“We are not even sure how many
girls there are having issues with their
gender, it could be there’s none.
“It all seems a bit potty to me, they
are talking about diversity but it’s a
girls-only school. How does that
work?” Another adult said outside
the school: “I think we live in an
age where we have to respect everyone’s views, and if they have an issue
around their gender we have to
understand that.
“However, I may be old-fashioned
but I think girls should be referred to
as girls and boys should be referred
to as boys.”
The letter went out to parents just
before Christmas and adds: “We are
conscious of recent figures which
show that more than four in five trans
young people have self-harmed and
more than two in five have attempted
to take their own life.
8ggcXl[\[
“Everyone’s welcome here. Staff
have embraced these changes and
are doing their best to implement
the new policy.”
Former children’s mental health
tsar Natasha Devon applauded
the school.
She said: “In order to be
inclusive of everyone you just need
to say ‘hello everyone’, instead of girls
or boys – it’s not a massive leap
to make.
“You always get this ‘PC gone mad’
argument whenever a new idea comes
into the public sphere.
“I fully expect that in 10 years’ time
this will just be something that everybody does.”
A statement issued by Altrincham
Grammar said: “It’s important our
students feel comfortable and able to
bring their true selves to the learning
environment.
“We welcome and celebrate diversity at our school and we will look
High-achieving...Altrincham Grammar
at any measure, however small, to
ensure the wellbeing of our staff and
students.”
Four years ago the school, motto
“Fortiter, Fideliter, Felicite” (Bravely,
Faithfully, Cheerfully), found itself
in the middle of a sexism row after
a society started by pupils took part
in a national campaign.
The campaign, titled “Who needs
feminism?”, saw pupils post photographs of themselves holding placards expressing their views online.
Management
at
the
school
demanded pupils’ photos be removed
after what one student described as a
“torrent of degrading and explicitly
sexual comments”.

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was last

cigarette papers, because they
could not provide proof of age.

BRITONS led the charge in
yesterday’s Bafta nominations,
with four home-grown stars
and just one American up for
the best actor award.
Gary Oldman, who plays Sir
Winston Churchill in Darkest
Hour, emerged as an early
favourite, with British director
Joe Wright’s biopic receiving a
total of nine nominations.
Oldman, 59, said: “This is my
second Bafta nomination.
“The recognition means so
much, not merely for the
distinguished company I now
find myself in with my fellow
nominees but most especially
for the privilege of playing
Winston Churchill.”
He is up against Daniel DayLewis, 60, in Phantom Thread,
set in the haute couture world
of London in the 1950s.
It is reportedly Day-Lewis’s
last film before self-imposed
retirement.

STINGING nettles could
play a vital part in fighting
cancer, researchers claim.
Scientists have created a
new treatment which is
activated
with
sodium
formate, a natural substance
found in organisms including nettles and ants.
Named JPC11, it is hoped
the new approach could
lessen the side-effects of
chemotherapy and overcome increasing resistance
to anti-cancer drugs.
When
scientists
at
Warwick university placed
JPC11 into cancerous cells,
it converted the cells’ energy
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
into an “unnatural lactate”
which then led to their
destruction.
An advantage is that
JPC11 can be repeatedly
reactivated and reused, so
other anti-cancer drugs can
be administered in smaller,
more effective doses.
The study, published in
the journal Nature Chemistry, focused on ovarian and
prostate cancers.
The university’s Dr James
Coverdale said: “This is a
significant step in the fight
against cancer.”

Lady Lucan’s drink and drugs
suicide after Parkinson’s scare
WITCH-HUNT: Deneuve, 74
:Xk_\i`e\1C\k
d\eY\]i\\kf
_`kfenfd\e
FILM star Catherine
Deneuve has attacked the
“new puritanism” behind
anti-sexual harassment
campaigns, saying “men
should be free to hit on”
anyone they like.
French idol Ms Deneuve,
74, said she was repulsed by
the number of men
becoming victims of
“witch-hunts”.
She and 99 other women
artists, writers and
academics say the furore
engulfing Hollywood after
assault claims against
producer Harvey Weinstein
is a threat to sexual freedom.
They told a French
newspaper: “Rape is a crime
but trying to seduce
someone, even persistently
or cack-handedly, is not –
nor is being gentlemanly
a macho attack.
“Men have been punished
summarily, forced out of
their jobs when all they did
was touch someone’s knee
or try to steal a kiss.”
Lady
Lucan
with her
husband
Lord
Lucan. He
vanished
after their
nanny
Sandra
Rivett was
murdered
at their
home in
1974. He
is also
believed
to have
committed
suicide.

Lady Lucan feared Parkinson’s after hand tremor
EIGHTY-year-old Lady Lucan
killed herself with a cocktail of
drink and drugs after becoming
convinced she had Parkinson’s
disease, a coroner said yesterday.
The wife of runaway peer Lord
Lucan spent months studying
ways of taking her life, making
diary notes on the subject.
The Westminster inquest was
told that on the day she committed suicide, she may also have
used a plastic bag and builder’s
mask in a bid to suffocate herself.
The suicide verdict brought an
end to a saga triggered by the
murder of Lucan family nanny
Sandra Rivett and the playboy
peer’s flight in 1974.
Lucan’s
daughter
Camilla
followed proceedings yesterday
from the public gallery.
His wife drifted into a reclusive
life and lived alone at a mews
cottage in London’s upmarket
Belgravia where she died last
September.
Police found her body after a
worried friend told them she had
missed their regular stroll in St
James’s Park.
Officers found diaries containing Lady Lucan’s notes on suicide
if she became frail.
The inquest was told the cause
of death was respiratory failure
due to alcohol and barbiturates
poisoning. She was wearing a
nightdress and had a graze on her
head. Nearby was an unmarked
bottle with one pill inside. There
was also a plastic bag and mask.
Coroner Dr Fiona Wilcox said:
“I’m entirely satisfied that suicide
is the final conclusion.
“There’s evidence of intention,
with handwritten notes detailing
concerns about her health.
“Although there is no suicide
note there are diary entries in
which she details these thoughts.”
Lady Lucan’s friend David
Davies, who reported the motherof-three’s disappearance to police,
said she believed she had Parkinson’s disease and had talked about
suicide with him. She had noticed
a tremor in her right hand, lost her
sense of smell, felt tired and anxious and suffered from insomnia.
She was also becoming forgetful.
The Lucan mystery unfolded in
1974, when the 39-year-old peer
disappeared after Miss Rivett, 29,
was attacked by an intruder in the
family home. Lady Lucan was also
attacked and later swore that the
assailant was her husband.
Police believe he killed himself
by leaping off a cross-channel
ferry. He was declared dead in 1999
and last year a death certificate
was issued giving his son the right
to inherit the family title.

T should be no surprise that David
Davis has now been forced to consult
Government lawyers over threats
from Brussels over Brexit but the
sheer gall of EU commissioners never
fails to shock. In yet another clear
attempt to punish Britain for our
decision to regain our independence,
there are signs that we are being
treated differently from other countries
in the bloc and that is despite the fact
that we are still a member. It is obvious
they want us to push us into “third
country status”. They can try all they
like but it is not going to work.
But this is what the EU does to
anyone who dares to stand up to the
bully boys of Brussels: tries to sideline
them while inflicting punishment. Just
ask the eastern European members
who are resisting the Brussels line
on immigration.
At least it should reassure us that we
are doing the right thing. In their
attempt to create a European
superstate the unelected bureaucrats
are becoming ever more antidemocratic, ever more threatening, ever
more determined to pull the hugely
differing countries and cultures in
Europe into one amorphous mass.
They won’t succeed of course and in
doing so will destroy the project they
are attempting to press on the
continent as individual countries fight
back. As for Britain, the sooner we set
out on our own again the better. And
thank our lucky stars we are getting out.

HE tweets made by the now exuniversity regulator Toby Young
were crude and unpleasant and it
is right that he was forced to stand
down. But the row over this relatively
trivial episode should not be allowed to
obscure a considerably more serious
problem: namely the state of some of
our universities.
We are continuing to see demands for
“no platforming” if students disagree
with speakers, for “safe spaces”, for the
removal of statues of historical figures
because the current generation is not
happy about the customs of a different
age. This is all deeply worrying and it is
imperative that action is taken.
There were signs that the
Government understands this, as when
universities minister Jo Johnson
threatened them with fines or
de-registration if they didn’t clamp
down on student zealots. Let us not
forget that that is the true issue, not a
series of obnoxious tweets.

S A political obsessive
I admit that I am –
ahem – unusual. When
it’s reshuffle day I sit
by the TV with my
phone on Twitter,
grabbing every bit of gossip.
And as a political obsessive I
thought Monday was inept and
disappointing. Having marched
us all the way to the top of the
hill with claims that this was
going to be a game-changer, it
turned out to be a dull, almost
pointless piece of political
theatre.
But here’s the thing. The vast
majority of people aren’t
political
obsessives.
Most
people are normal with normal
lives, normal interests – and to
be blunt a normal sense of what
actually matters in life.
That means that the identity
of the Secretary Of State For
Shuffling Bits Of Paper Backwards And Forwards And Then
Throwing Them In The Bin is a
matter of supreme indifference
to almost everyone. Can you
name even half a dozen Cabinet
ministers? Beyond Theresa
May and Boris, then possibly
Amber Rudd and Philip Hammond (and that’s pushing it), I
doubt it very much.
But it’s those of us who can,
not the vast majority who can’t,
who have the real problem.
Because politics isn’t really
about names and the Westminster village games that people
like me pay attention to.
I’ll argue to my dying day
that politics is central to our
lives and wellbeing and that we
must never take it and our
democracy for granted. But the
politics that matters is about
real life. It’s about schools,
hospitals, welfare, crime and
what we see around us every
day.
N
HETHER it’s David
Gauke (he’s just
been reshuffled to
another job) or Esther McVey
(she’s just taken his job) who is
in charge of the Department of
Work and Pensions certainly
matters because different ministers have different priorities.
But far more important is how
those priorities are set by the
Government overall and what
impact they have.
That’s why the brouhaha
over
Monday’s
botched
reshuffle is in the end irrelevant. Because once you move
down from the PM and the
Chancellor, who really do set
the agenda, it is politics, not
individual
politicians,
that
matter. What’s vital now is that
Take
housing.
Baroness
Thatcher knew that a propertyowning democracy provided
the greatest protection against
socialism. She and successive
governments acted on that.
But home ownership is now
at its lowest for 30 years, made
worse by the failure to increase
the number of available (and
affordable) houses for rent as
well as purchase.
On Monday the Department
for Communities and Local
Government was renamed the
Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
But if there aren’t thoroughgoing reforms to promote more
affordable housing – changes to
our madly restrictive planning
rules, for example – then the
name change is the worst kind
of superficial nonsense.
Above all the Government
needs to keep asking itself why
people should vote Conservative – and across every area to
shape policy to make that more
likely. More broadly there are
lessons to be learned from history such as former US president Teddy Roosevelt, who saw
that capitalism in the 1890s had
warped out of shape.
RESOLVE: The Prime Minister sets the tone in office
Picture: EPA
Jk\g_\eGfccXi[
Gfc`k`ZXcZfdd\ekXkfi
the Government acts on the
issues that really matter to
people. Issues like the cost of
living, affordable housing and
quality of life. Issues like crime.
Issues like the NHS crisis (and
it’s silly to pretend that postponing all non-urgent operations isn’t a crisis). Issues as
basic as regular and frequent
bin collections.
It’s easy to say, as some Tories
do, that Labour should be miles
ahead in the polls given how
dreadful the Government has
been at dealing with many of
those issues. And so because
the two parties are level pegging
now, things are OK.
But that betrays a terrible
complacency. More realistically,
Labour’s level pegging – indeed
a small lead in most polls – is an
indictment of how the Tories
have failed to get to grip with
these issues. It should be
almost inconceivable that a
party in the hands of hard-Left
extremists who stand almost
completely outside the norms
of British politics should be
within touching distance of
power. And yet we have to be
honest: that is where Jeremy
Corbyn’s Labour now is.
If the extremist-run Labour
Party, which poses a dire threat
to Parliamentary democracy
itself, is to be kept out of power,
the Government must be
relentlessly focused on politics
in its real, most basic sense.

O-CALLED
“robber
barons” and monopolies had turned capitalism from the greatest gift to
working people to their enemy
as consumers, workers and
small businessmen were steadily ripped off. He acted to save
capitalism by dealing with such
abuses. That is how many
people feel now about the
system and the Government
must address those issues
before the lure of Corbyn takes
too great a hold to break.
It’s not much to ask: framing
policies that give ordinary,
hard-working
people
the
chance to own their own home,
take home a reasonable wage,
not have to worry about their
health and then be ready for
their parents’ – and then their
own – old age. That’s what the
Conservatives have always
done and they must do it
again.
And they must start to
behave as if they understand
how they can come across. So
instead of swatting away all
objections to handing over
£13billion in aid as if somehow
racist, think about how mad it
seems when hospitals are
sending decent, hard-working
people home because they can’t
cope. The reshuffle might have
grabbed the headlines but it’s
the policies that matter.

HE Duke of Edinburgh
could have died, Kim
Jong-un could have fired
off a nuke or the Government have fallen and I
wouldn’t know. I am
utterly cut off from the world and
also from my own world. I have no
idea what post is piling up, what
emails have been pinged back with
an automatic reply, what telephone
calls I have missed. The housesitters can contact my agent in the
event of fire, flood or pestilence and
he can speak to Big Brother who will
decide if the ashes or water level
merit my being told in the diary
room that I might just have a tiny
problem that means leaving.
The worst thing here is sleep
deprivation. I arrived pretty well
exhausted. I left pantomime in
Lowestoft after the second performance on December 31 and was driven
overnight to Dartmoor where I spent
the rest of the night unpacking and
re-packing, getting the washing
done and dealing with the post
which had last been sent on a fortnight earlier. Among it was a card
from the post office to say there was
a package to be signed for. I still
have no idea what that was. I have
not opened the Christmas presents
which the family left for me, nor any
cards (about 300) because I had to
be in the car and off to Big Brother
by 11am.
Inevitably there were things I
failed to pack but I told myself at
least I would be able to sleep once I
got here. Ho! Ho! Ho! as that chap
who comes down the chimney might
say. They won’t let you put the lights
out until they decide everyone is in
bed and very bright, glaring lights
they are too. If you get up and turn
them off they switch them back on.
One night all the women thought
they were being clever and retired
together but the boys were having a
merry party so the lights stayed on.
I often enjoy a snooze in the
afternoon but now I want to nap as
soon as I get up.
Big hello from the
Big Brother house
Pictures: CHANNEL 5
S
OMETIMES I am glad to be
here and at other times I
wish I had stuck to my
“never, ever Big Brother” policy.
They have respected my modesty
but there is still enough vulgarity to
fill a lifetime and I am not talking
about the guys swearing. One
task involved a statement so
X-rated that I cannot repeat it in a
family newspaper. If the TV bosses
want to cast this as something
different they need to re-think their
own approach.
Why is it that young women these
days think they have to show
everything when they dress up? Why
dresses so deep cut that the
breasts are on display? Why so short
that you can see…? Transgender
housemate India copies this sort of
style despite being middle-aged.
Is that what she thinks being a
woman means?
Most housemates get on amicably.
We are after all in it together. The
exception is the aforementioned
India who takes offence and instigates rows. On Sunday night the
boys put on a show for the girls.
Wayne danced, John produced some
rap and Shane J gave Andrew a
makeover as a drag artist. We were
all convulsed. Then India soured
everything with a massive row about
how drag artists offended her
because they merely pretended to
HOUSEMATES: Ann is chatting to Rachel Johnson and Daniel O’Reilly
CHALLENGE: Ann thought long and hard before agreeing to join the show
be women whereas she was a real
one. It is by no means the first
time she has chosen to give someone a row and the rest of us are
getting fed up. That apart, we get
along well enough.
Nevertheless in a programme
about equality I despair. My idea of
equality is just that: men and women
have equal opportunity. Neither sex
should have special privileges nor
positive discrimination. Yet for the
time being here the men are slaves
and we have the power. That ain’t
women’s lib. It is women’s revenge.
Then there was a task which
involved the deliberate infliction of
pain on men because there is
apparently a stereotype that men
can’t endure pain. Well try telling
that to our boys who come home
maimed from Afghanistan. Another
task involved asking men to cry.
Neither of these tasks seems to
me moral, the first being more
reminiscent of the Roman arena.
Panem et circenses.
Yet others were fun. I am glad
that I can still remember how to
change a tyre, not having done so
since the days when I owned a
Morris Minor, a car so simple that
I actually understood what was
happening under the bonnet.
Now I lift up the bonnet and then
say to any passing male: “Er…
excuse me but do you know which is
the brake fluid container?” Men and
women are different. In the girls’
dormitory there are some fluffy toys
on the bed (not mine). Can you
imagine any man bringing along his
childhood bear? Men are physically
stronger
whatever
the
dafter
element of the equality campaigners
may say. We should celebrate the
difference instead of moaning
about stereotypes.
What do we miss from the outside
world? Inevitably most people miss
their families and their pets. A few
admit to feeling bereft of their
phones but interestingly most of us
do not. I miss reading and the
cosiness of my Aga and log fires.
Some miss the gym but give it
another week and I think most of us
will miss outdoor space. There is a
small garden which we use as
prisoners might use an exercise yard
but that is it. I cannot stretch my
legs by strolling across Dartmoor.
We cannot wander down a high
street or take a brisk walk to the
shops. Being cooped up will get to
us all eventually.
I thank heaven for Rachel Johnson, a sane and dignified journalist
and, incidentally, sister to Boris.
Indeed when I knew she was coming
into the Big Brother house I did
actually believe it really might be
different. The young women are
wonderfully kind and considerate
and Amanda Barrie, the oldest contestant, makes us all laugh. Ashley
has almost succeeded in overcoming
my lifelong aversion to mascara. Yet
we were all glad when the men came
in. Being confined with seven other
women was not my idea of fun.
Men are so much less introspective
and I was running out of patience
with some of the self-absorption
that manifested itself in the conversations of the first few days.
“Have you noticed how everybody
is talking about herself?” I whispered to Malika.
“Constantly,” she whispered back.
Most of the women in this house
have never experienced real discrimination. Only Amanda and I
came to maturity in an era where it
was perfectly lawful to refuse a
woman finance or a job simply
because she was female. The others
can have no idea how trivial their
examples of “discrimination” sound.
We women achieved equality a
long time ago and it is now the
men who face a playing field tilted
against them.
Anyway what can it possibly
matter who pays for dinner? As
far as I know there is still a war
in Syria.

How many of your friends
said after they heard that
John Worboys had been
released last week: “Well,
to be fair, I think 10 years was long
enough for what he did”? Come to
that, how many of you knew precisely what an “indefinite sentence”
– which is what Worboys received –
meant? I suspect the answers to
those questions are a) none and b)
very few. And nothing better illustrates the gulf between those who
run the justice system and those on
whose behalf they are meant to
administer it.
Taxi driver Worboys was convicted in 2009 of 19 charges of drugging and sexually assaulting 12 passengers and one charge of rape. Yet
under the terms of that weaselly-
sounding term “indefinite sentence”
it was recommended he serve “at
least eight years”. Not so indefinite
then. The sentence also stipulated
that he should be freed once the
Parole Board decided he no longer
posed a public threat. And without
even bothering to warn his victims
first they concluded Worboys was
safe to be let out 10 years after his
arrest. Well, it’s not as if he’s likely
to be knocking around their select
post codes once he’s free, is it? It
would only be slightly less of an
outrage if the Worboys case was an
isolated one.
On the contrary it is entirely representative of a justice system which
exhibits an indifference, that is frequently indistinguishable from contempt, for the views of the public.

You have to wonder about
the health of a political
system in which, after one
dramatic if rather
contradictory speech, a
campaign is launched to
persuade Oprah Winfrey to run
for the White House.
Never mind the dubious
endorsement of Meryl Streep –
whose sense of proportion and
judgment can be gauged by how
she once referred to Harvey
Weinstein as “God”. While much
of what Winfrey said was
laudable it was difficult not to
suppress a mirthless laugh at her
claim that she valued “the press
more than ever” because they
were “under siege these days”.
Mmmm. It requires only the
briefest acquaintance with
Hollywood to realise that when it comes to controlling the press and
presenting an image often at odds with the murky reality, the
showbiz world makes politicians look mere novices.
But then, as we’ve already had Bush father and son as president,
nearly had Clinton husband and wife, and with talk of both Michelle
Obama and Ivanka Trump fancying a tilt at the White House in the
future, there’s not much us supposedly class-bound Brits can teach
the Americans about a sense of entitlement and aristocratic
succession either, is there?

What if the joke’s on Trump’s foes?
I loved the old Soviet joke spotted on social media this week:
“Man runs in Red Square shouting, ‘Brezhnev is an idiot’.
Arrested and jailed for 10 years – one year for insulting the
president and nine years for betraying a state secret.”
It’s been gleefully seized upon as applying equally today to Donald
Trump, especially in light of the allegations about him catalogued in
Michael Wolff’s new book Fire And Fury.
That’s understandable. A week before he defeated Hillary Clinton
I wrote in 2016: “I can’t stand Donald Trump and pity the American
electorate the dismal choice they face.” Nothing has since caused me
to revise my opinion of the Oval Office’s least lovable occupant in
decades. And yet I can’t help wondering whether what his legion of
detractors most fear is that the uncouth abomination of their nightmares
might just turn the economy round sufficiently to persuade voters to
give him a second term? Especially in the absence so far of any serious
candidate emerging (sorry, Oprah) among the opposition who can win
over Middle America?

Mum crowned Miss Slinky after shedding four stone
SOPHIE Jude, 23, poses
with the Bridget Jones
pants she used to wear...
which embarrassed her into
some serious dieting.
Sophie had opted for the
outsized underwear on her
second date with Carl, 33,
who is now her partner.
After a wine spill, she was
forced to dry her clothes,
including her “big control
knickers”, on a radiator,
thus revealing her secret.
Embarrassed by her
resemblance to Renee
Zellweger in the Bridget
Jones movies, she has
since lost four stone
and dropped from a
size 16 to a size eight
in just under a year.
Yesterday she was
crowned Slimming
World’s Miss Slinky
2018.
Skincare specialist
Sophie, from
Nottingham, said:
“We laugh about it
9p?XeeX>\`jjc\i
now but I was mortified to
have to put my big Bridget
Jones pants on display.”
An unflattering holiday
snap added to her misery.
She added: “I knew I’d
had enough – I didn’t ever
want to feel that way again.”
Sophie started attending
weekly Slimming World
meetings in nearby Beeston
just six weeks after the birth
of her now one-year-old
daughter, Vogue.
She swapped big bowls of
cereal and chocolate
biscuits for porridge and
fruit, and now eats jacket
potatoes instead of huge
baguettes for lunch.
Sophie, who is 5ft 2in,
now weighs 8st 11½Ib, and
said her life is “completely
different now”.
Previously, her weight
had seen her give up a
performing arts scholarship
at a school in London,
where she said there was “a
lot of pressure to look a
certain way”.
But now her confidence is
“sky high” and she has
joined a new dance class.

£1m football shirt ‘scam’
A CONMAN made more than
£1million from selling a “staggering”
amount of fake football memorabilia,
a court heard yesterday.
David Rennie, 46, sold 4,500 shirts,
boots and balls he claimed were
signed by stars including Rooney,
Messi and Ronaldo, it was alleged.
He is said to have led a life of luxury
and paid no tax while operating the
internet scam for nine years through
his business FA Premier Signings.
He told customers his team spent
hours at training grounds waiting for
autographs and had good relation/lmx

bought replica gear from shops like
Sports Direct and used marker pens

Crown Court was told. He was rumbled by a genuine memorablilia dealer
who grew suspicious, the court heard.
Prosecutor Lee Reynolds said
Rennie ran a “sophisticated” racket
from home in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
Rennie denies running a fraudulent
business and transferring criminal
proceeds. The trial continues.

Vic Reeves
insists he’s
never had so much as
a cross word with his
longtime sidekick
Bob Mortimer.
The 58-year-old,
who’s been pals with
Bob, also 58, for three
decades, says it’s
been a laugh the
whole way through.
“It’s rare to have
been friends with
someone for such a long time
and never to have fallen out,”
says Vic. “Bob and I never have
in 30 years of friendship and
almost that long working
together. We don’t argue and we
don’t get on each other’s nerves
– it’s just not our way.”
Bob and Vic (l-r above) have

PRESENTER Davina McCall insists
her video about loneliness was not a
cry for help. There had been
speculation that the 50-year-old, whose
17-year marriage to TV star turned travel
operator Matthew Roberts recently
ended, was struggling with loneliness
after she posted a teary video.
However she’s now revealed that she
actually spent Christmas with
Matthew and their children
Holly, 16, Tilly, 14, and
Chester, 11. “I thought I’d do a
quick message. People took
that as a cry for help as I
was on my own,” she
says. “Actually Matthew
and I decided for the
kids’ sake we’d be all
together for
Christmas so I wasn’t
on my own…
Matthew and I have
both decided we are
never going to talk
about us [publicly].”
Davina, who has been
showing off a more muscular
physique lately, stated in the
Boxing Day video: “Sometimes
even when you’re in a really huge
group of people it’s possible to feel
lonely or if you’ve lost somebody that
you really care about…
“I’m sending everybody a great big
Christmassy hug.”

Her co-star David Duchovny, 57,
who starred as agent Fox Mulder in
the series, was apparently unable to
make the ceremony but already has
his own star on the Walk Of Fame
next to Gillian’s and sent a message
to her saying: “We will always
be joined as partners, friends and
now neighbours.”
And after becoming the 2,625th
star since Tinseltown first started
bestowing the accolade on the
famous strip in 1961, Gillian, who
was joined by The X-Files creator
Chris Carter for the momentous
occasion, added: “It’s an incredible
honour, I feel very privileged and
humbled by it.”

ABLO PICASSO once
said: “Art washes away
from the soul the dust of
everyday life.” And for
Essex gas engineer and
part-time artist James
Gibson it is a philosophy he has
taken to heart.
Gibson, 43, is the creator of
“van
art”:
extraordinarily
detailed creations made entirely
from the grime on dirty white
vehicles. If his works initially
attracted little more than raised
eyebrows in his home town of
Harwich, more recent murals
have drawn praise from celebrities including boxer David Haye
and music superstar Stormzy.
“I started doing the van art
about a year ago after getting
stuck in a traffic jam,” he says.
“Someone had drawn a smiley
face on the back of a lorry and I
thought, ‘Someone must have
been in a good mood to have
done that’. I decided I’d give it a
go and did Ed Sheeran. I did a
few others early on but as I’ve
9p;fd`e`ZLkkfe
continued they’ve become more
detailed.”
Although Gibson initially concentrated on creating portraits,
including England striker Harry
Kane, boxers David Haye and
Anthony Joshua, Pennywise the
clown from the Stephen King
film It and rapper Stormzy, it
was his haunting recreation of
the Battle of the Somme that
saw his work go viral. The mural,
etched on the back of a swimming pool company’s filthy Ford
Transit for Remembrance Day
last year, was shared on Facebook more than 70,000 times.
“I was pleased with that as it
was really quite poignant and I
felt like it had a sense of movement in the picture,” he says. He
now wants to use his talents to
raise awareness of post traumatic stress disorder among the
Armed Forces with his next picture planned to be an image of a
soldier with his head in his
hands.
Gibson creates his works using
nothing more than his fingers, a
sponge, cocktail sticks and
folded up cardboard and admits
that he has to work fast as a rain
shower could see the whole
endeavour washed away.
“I’ll typically spend two to
three hours on each piece but as
it gets colder the adrenaline
kicks in because my hands get so
cold and I’m always wary it could
rain.” He also admits that while
oldest daughter Alicia, 21, acts
as his on-the-spot critic, it was
only
when
platinum-selling
Stormzy retweeted an image of
his portrait – drawn on the back
of a citroen – that youngest
daughter Mollie, 15, conceded
that her dad might be on to
something.
“Mollie’s friends were like,
‘Stormzy has retweeted your
dad’,” he says. “He’s her favourite artist. I think I was cool for
once.” That endorsement was to
be followed by a phone call from
David Haye expressing his admiration for Gibson’s portrait of
him. “He said he saw the picture
online as it went viral and said it
was incredible,” says Gibson. “I
was so made up that he called
me and touched that he liked it
so much. I was not expecting it.”
The self-proclaimed “Vanksy”
insists, however, that he is not
about to let his newfound fame
go to his head and that he has no
plans to retire from his day job
just yet.
“My creations are disposable
pieces of art. I know it’s there
one minute then the next it could
start raining and all be washed
away,” he says.
“I am not making money out of
them and I like that. If they make
a person smile when they are
stuck in a traffic jam then it’s all
worth it to me.”

DAVID Cameron’s former adviser Steve
Hilton insists his ex-boss unflatteringly
regarded Barack Obama as one of the “most
self-absorbed people” he had ever met.
Obama memorably embarrassed
Cameron’s right-hand man George Osborne
by calling him “Jeffrey”. On realising his
error, the US president told the chancellor:
“I’m sorry man, I must have confused you
with my favourite R&B singer.”
The performer in question, 69-year-old
Jeffrey Osborne, is best known for 1982 hit
On The Wings Of Love.
FORMIDABLE interviewer Jeremy Paxman,
who claims Cameron was “the worst prime
minister we had for a very, very long time”,
once turned down the chance of a job offer
from the politician.
After leaving Newsnight in 2014 Paxo
announced he had rejected a meeting with the
PM to discuss becoming the Tories’ mayoral
candidate in London. “I decided I wouldn’t
take it on for all the eclairs in Paris,” he said.
NOW facing embarrassing claims he works
just two hours a day, Donald Trump is not
the only US leader accused of being idle.
Calvin Coolidge, president from 1923 to
1929, was also considered work-shy. As well
as sleeping up to 11 hours a night it was
rumoured “Silent Cal” spent much of his
time in the White House counting the cars
passing by on Pennsylvania Avenue.
SCREEN legend Kirk Douglas, 101, who
received a standing ovation at the Golden
Globes stage at the weekend, acknowledges
the downside of his longevity.
Having outlived his
Hollywood contemporaries,
Douglas, pictured in his
heyday, recently admitted:
“I miss Burt Lancaster. We
fought a lot and I miss him
a lot.” Acknowledging
political differences with
another late close pal,
he added: “And John
Wayne even though he was a Republican and
I was a Democrat.”
Macho Wayne fiercely disapproved when
Douglas starred as artist Vincent van Gogh in
1956, complaining: “We’ve got to play strong,
tough characters!”
CURRENTLY insisting on keeping fans up
to date with his flu symptoms on Twitter,
exuberant TV star Gyles Brandreth meets
with an unsympathetic response from
other half Michele.
The 69-year-old says: “A wife speaks,
‘Nobody’s interested, Gyles. Nobody. Just
shut up about it, will you?’ ”
WHILE Andy Murray recuperates, the former
Wimbledon champion’s grandparents are
adapting to their new hearing aids.
His mother Judy reports: “Me, ‘How are
you getting on with your hearing aid, dad?’
Him, ‘Awful. I can hear every word your
mother says.’ ”

PARENTS in Wales could soon be banned from
smacking their children.
If the proposal is implemented, Wales would
become the second country in the UK to outlaw
physical punishment for youngsters.
The Scottish government has already announced
plans to remove the defence of “justifiable assault”
in Scottish law, which currently allows parents to
use physical punishment to admonish a child.
Yesterday Huw Irranca-Davies, the Welsh minister
for children and social care, launched a 12-week
consultation on the issue.
He said: “We want parents to be confident in
managing their children’s behaviour without feeling
they must resort to physical punishment.
“If there is any potential risk of harm to a child, it
is our obligation as a government to take action.
EUROPE’S oldest
silverback gorilla has
died aged 56, with
thousands of fans
posting tributes online.
Nico, who was 32st,
was the world’s second
oldest male in captivity
and died in his sleep.
He gained a cult
following after becoming
a star attraction at
Longleat Safari Park,
Wiltshire, where he lived
alone on an island in the
middle of a lake.
The notoriously
grumpy primate resided
in his own Palladianstyle house, which was
full of luxuries, including
Sky TV.
He had lived on the
island for 52 years after
arriving from a zoo in
Switzerland.
Thousands of people
posted tributes on
Nico’s Facebook page.
John Luther said: “Hope
there is a permanent
memorial for him.”

“Legislation was introduced years ago to stop
physical punishment in schools – now is the time to
ensure it is not acceptable anywhere.”
He said physical punishment had been shown to
have “negative long-term impacts on a child’s life
chances” and was an “ineffective punishment”.
The proposed legislation would not create a new
offence but would instead remove a defence to the
existing offences of assault and battery.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Children has long campaigned for children to
have the same protection against assault as adults.
Other countries to have made the change include
France, Sweden, Denmark and Ireland.

A HUSBAND who lost his
wedding ring in woods has been
reunited with it following a chance
meeting with strangers – who had
discovered it just minutes earlier.
Andrew Bilsborrow was heartbroken when the titanium band
slipped from his finger as he rode
his mountain bike down a track.
Two months later engineer
Andrew, 36, was on the same
track near his Sheffield home
when he stopped to chat to a family walking in the other direction.
To his amazement, they told
him they had just found a ring
buried under leaves.
Andrew told them his story
and, after scrubbing off the dirt,
was astonished to discover that it
was his ring.
He said: “I like going out on my
bike in that area and I just got
chatting to them about cycling.
“They told me they had just
found a ring and asked if I knew
anyone who had lost one.
“It had been buried in a place I
must have gone past six or seven
times after losing it.
“It is an incredible coincidence.
If I had walked past 10 seconds
earlier or later, I would have
probably missed the family.”
Andrew and teacher Charlotte,
also 36, married in 2013 and have
a year-old daughter Imogen.
Andrew added: “I was abso-
lutely gutted when I lost the ring.
You can replace them but it’s
obviously not the same.”
Charlotte said: “We searched
everywhere and couldn’t find it.
“I am so glad we have it back. It
has a lot of personal value.”
Andrew forgot to ask the
family’s name so Charlotte put a
message on Facebook to thank
them for finding the ring in
Hutcliffe Wood last December.
Hannah Elliott saw the message
and replied: “It was us that found
it. It was an amazing coincidence
but we are so glad it has been
returned to its rightful owner.”
Ladbrokes’ betting experts
have since put the odds of finding
the ring 100,000-1.

a woman told officers she
had murdered her father
“a number of years ago”

Police confirmed human
remains had been found
near a house in Reddish,
Stockport, although the
body has yet to be
formally identified.
The 63-year-old woman
remained in custody for
questioning last night.
Detective
Inspector
Dan Clegg, from the
Major Incident Team,
said: “Following a search
of the garden of a property on Matlock Road in
Reddish, officers discovered remains which were
later confirmed to be
human by a forensic
pathologist.
“The investigation is
still in it’s early stages
and many questions still
need answers.”
A neighbour described
the woman as “very
quiet and reserved”.
She said: “I cannot
believe it. She is such a
lovely person.”

A NEW mother has hailed a heroic
trucker who transported her car
over a flooded road while she was
in labour.
Kelly Brinkman and partner
Paulo Pereira were in despair
after their journey to hospital
was halted by 300 yards of rising
floodwater.
But lorry driver Justin Tacey
rolled up to save the day, loading
them and their car on to the back
of his truck and taking them to
safety.
After finally reaching hospital
Kelly, 32, needed an emergency
Caesarean because her baby was
in the breech position.
Daughter Lillie Rose Maria was
born fit and healthy at 7lb 13oz.
The couple have now labelled
Justin, 45, as their saviour after
last week’s dramatic rescue.
Kelly said: “The only thing I
can think of is that Justin was
meant to be there for us.
“If it was not for him, we could
be telling a completely different
story now.

and its precious cargo on to the
back of the lorry and Justin drove
the 300 yards to the other side of
the flooded area. The couple then
continued their 10-mile journey.
Father-of-four Justin, of Diss,
Norfolk, said: “We had a word
with the coastguard and decided
it was worth giving it a go. It was
probably the only way forward.
“I was just doing what anyone
else would have done. I had the
means to do it and so I couldn’t
have just left her there.”
A chore for women as
men get more leisure
THERE is not just a gender pay gap
– men are also enjoying almost five
more hours a week of leisure time,
according to a report.
The difference has worsened
rather than improved over the past
15 years, the Office for National
Statistics found.
While men kick back and relax for
43 hours per week, women are too
busy doing chores and the bulk of
childcare and manage only around
38 hours.
Since 2000, men have gained an
extra hour to watch the football,
play golf or go to the pub; timestarved women, meanwhile, have 10
minutes less to catch up with friends
or pursue a hobby.
The analysis, which follows the
publication of figures last year, said:
“There is a growth in inequality
between men and women when it
comes to taking leisure time.
“Men are now taking quite a lot
more time each week for leisure and
women are taking less compared
with 2000. Leisure time for women
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
could be less than for men because
although
women
are
more
frequently engaged in part-time
work than men, they spend more
time completing unpaid work such
as household chores and childcare.
“The hours spent on unpaid work
are likely to replace those hours that
could have been spent on leisure
activities.”
Leisure time excludes chores,
childcare, study and travel unrelated to leisure activities, as well as
time spent eating and sleeping.
People living with a child under
the age of 15 report that they take
up to 14 hours per week less leisure
time than those on their own.
Men consistently enjoyed more
leisure time than women regardless
of the child’s age, the ONS noted.
Time to relax rises with age, with
those over 65, and usually retired,
getting the most.

WHEN the time arrives, as surely it
must, for our Government to finally
come to its senses over the scandal
of foreign aid, a decision will have
to be made over by how much to
reduce it, and I would like to offer a
suggestion.
I think we should focus our
foreign aid on relieving the natural,
rather than on the man-made
disasters such as the wars within
Islam currently being fought in the
Middle East.
Britain and other Western
democracies continue to pick up
the bill for the aid and refugee
camps created by their conflicts.
In the end these Islamic states
must decide on the funding
priorities within their own
countries just as we must here,
beginning with our NHS.

RICHARD Grove’s letter (“Penpushers and bean-counters bleed
our NHS dry”, January 9) has hit
the nail on the head.
Being an ex-employee of the
NHS who worked behind the
scenes I have seen at first hand
how the money is spent.
The answer is not to keep
putting millions after millions into
the NHS. The Government needs
to set up an investigation team and
visit Trusts around the country and
start asking hard questions to all
senior, middle and lower
management, like what is your role
in this Trust?
They also need to look at
invoices, suppliers etc. I can assure
you it won’t be pretty and you
would have to have a timescale for
these visits and a date for the
report.
But only then will our superb
frontline NHS staff and A&E
departments feel the benefits and
get the resources they need.

FUNDING for the National Health
Service increases, yet as each
winter comes around we are faced
with the same serious problems.
The Government is held to
account and is asked by all sides
what plans it has in place to solve
this recurring winter shambles.
The NHS has more tiers of
management than any other
business I know, with those in the
top tiers on eye-watering salaries
and pension perks.
Am I missing something here, or
shouldn’t we be asking these
overpaid, privileged managers what
plans they have in place to solve
the problem? After all, isn’t that
what we pay them for?

IN a further kick in the teeth to British taxpayers who
fund the NHS and pay for the health tourists from abroad
who are ripping off the cash-strapped service, Britain’s
foreign aid programme is raiding the Treasury for billions
of pounds to fund health services and meddle in dozens
of other countries across the globe (“84% say give aid
cash to the NHS”, January 9).
I dread to think how many of our elderly will freeze to
death this winter but I would imagine that the terrorist
sympathisers, despots, crooks and aid barons who all
benefit massively from this outrage will, like the
Government, look the other way.
The catastrophic Department for International
Development should be scrapped at once and be
replaced by a panel who will decide how the money is
spent, drawn from the public, the armed forces and,
frankly, anyone else who is not associated with the cloud
cuckoo land inside the Westminster Bubble.

HAVING read the article by Ross
Clark I find it hard to believe we
have had to endure these rail
strikes for so long (“Government

strikes”, January 9).
The so-called dispute is
supposed to be over driver-only
operated trains.
We all know that’s not true as the
real reason is they want even more
money because £63,000 a year for a
four-day week doesn’t seem enough
so the unions are up to their ploy of
striking for more.
This has gone on for far too long

greed.

NOT everyone is as
selfish as described by
Peter Hill (By The Way,
January 9) and some people need
reclining seats, even on short
flights.
My mother is disabled and has
difficulty sitting upright for any
length of time and many other
people have an equally valid need.
To ban reclining seats just
because a few people abuse them is
wrong and will penalise the
disabled by making them upgrade
to more expensive seats.
It would be better to explain to
passengers the need to be more
considerate during the flight.
Jeremy Robertson,
Cardiff
P\j
I AGREE with Peter Hill
when he says that it’s a
good idea to scrap
reclining seats on short-haul flights
and that we should regard air
travel like catching a bus.
I recently flew from Southend to
Manchester and back again the
same day to see my son. The whole
experience was brilliant, I loved
every minute but I was surprised to
find that just after take-off, the
cabin crew came around with a
trolley offering to sell passengers
bottles of alcohol, tea or coffee.
I didn’t even have time to finish
my drink before it was time to get
off the plane.

I FEEL that despite the positive
stories some people still paint a
very black picture of hip surgery
(“I’m chuffed to bits with my new
hip”, January 9).
In 2008 at the age of 73 I had
both mine replaced, the left in the
February and the right in March.
The surgery was carried out at
my local NHS hospital. I was back
on the golf course the following
March (which was the motivation
for the surgery) and 10 years later I
am still playing.

CONGRATULATIONS to the
Aussie Test match cricketers, you
gave England a real thrashing
(“England forced to take a knee”,
January 9).
My advice to the England players
would be not to get too despondent
as the future of cricket is Twenty20.
It’s really exciting and you get a
result in a day. If you don’t believe
me just watch the Indian Premier
League, it’s great entertainment.
In this high-tech age people can’t
spare five days to watch cricket.

Hitler’s limo to sell for millions
Pictures: HERBERT HOFFMAN/GETTY,SWNS
Hitler’s car
in which he
stood, left,
during his
victory
parade in
Berlin after
the defeat
of France
AN ARMOUR-PLATED convertible used by
Adolf Hitler is set to sell for millions of
pounds at auction next week.
A charity named after a Nazi hunter is set
to benefit from the sale.
The 1939 Mercedes-Benz 770 Grosser
Offener Tourenwagen is being described as
“the most historically significant automobile
ever offered for public sale”.
Ten per cent of proceeds from the sale
will go to charities dedicated to educating
people about the Holocaust, including
9p8[i`Xe?\Xie
The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.
Considered the most technologicallyadvanced car of its time, the four-seater
convertible was used for the 1937 state visit
of Mussolini and the 1940 victory
parade in Berlin after the Nazis defeated
the French.
It was fitted with a 7.7-litre engine, giving
the enormous limo a top speed beyond
100mph. The armour-plated car, with
inch-thick bulletproof glass, was last used on
parade at the Old Reichstag in Berlin on
May 4, 1941, when Hitler celebrated the
defeat of Yugoslavia and Greece.
When the war was over the Mercedes was
seized by the American army and placed
under the control and use of its military
police stationed in Le Havre, France.
The car was shipped to the US in 1946 and
changed hands many times until 2004, when
it was bought by a European collector
for $18million (£13.3million). It is one of five
surviving Offener Tourenwagens and one of
three in private hands. Worldwide
Auctioneers is due to sell the iconic vehicle in
Arizona next Wednesday.
A spokesman said: “It is hard to determine
the market value on such an important and
singular piece of history. Without any history
it is a $5million car.”
Mercedes built 88 Grosser 770 models until
the programme was cancelled in 1943.
All were produced by renowned craftsmen
at Mercedes-Benz’s Sindelfingen Werks.

EFORE French President
Emmanuel Macron visited
China this week he made
sure to soften up his hosts
in advance with the gift
of a thoroughbred horse.
Four days before the President’s
jet touched down in Beijing the
Chinese took delivery of a
magnificent eight-year-old bay
gelding called Vesuve de Brekka
(Vesuvius of Brekka) that had spent
five years with France’s elite
Republican Guard.
And a flick through the history
books reveals that the gift of Vesuvius
is by no means the first time an
animal has oiled the wheels of
international diplomacy.
¬ÊRussia’s dog-loving president Vladimir
Putin has been given at least three pedigree
canines over the years. In 2010 Bulgaria’s
PM Boyko Borissov presented Putin with
a Bulgarian shepherd puppy called Buffy
and two years later it was joined by an Akita
called Yume, a gift from the Japanese prime
minister Shinzo Abe. Late last year the
reigning president of Turkmenistan
Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov added
a Turkmen shepherd dog called Alabai
to Putin’s growing brood.
GIFT HORSE:
President
Macron, near
right, gave
the Chinese
Vesuvius,
above
¬ÊNo country has exploited
the potential of animal
envoys more than China,
which has a tradition of
panda diplomacy that dates
back to the 7th-century Tang
dynasty when the Empress
Wu Zetian presented a pair
of the cuddly rarities to the
Japanese emperor.
But the practice went into
overdrive under Chairman
Mao and his communist
successors. Between 1958
and 1982 China gave 23
pandas to nine different
countries. The most famous
gift was to Richard Nixon to
mark his visit to Beijing in
1972 – the first by a US
president to the People’s
Republic – which Nixon later
dubbed “the week that
changed the world”.
To mark the historic event
Mao presented his American
counterpart with two
pandas – Ling-Ling and
Hsing-Hsing – which were
donated to the National Zoo
in Washington DC, where
they were an instant hit.
More than 20,000 people
visited them on their first
day. Nixon reciprocated by
sending Mao a pair of Musk
oxen, Arctic herbivores with
a distinctive shaggy coat.
The pulling power of the
pandas was not lost on
the British prime minister
Edward Heath, pictured
below, who requested a
pair of his own when he
visited China in 1974.
Chia-Chia and Ching-Ching
duly arrived at London Zoo
a few weeks later.
¬ÊFormer French
president François
Hollande was given a
camel as a thank-you for
driving Islamic
extremists out of Mali in
2013 but it met an
ignominious end after
being left in the care of
a local family.
Hollande had initially
intended to have the
camel vaccinated and
transferred to a French
zoo. But given “the
rigours of the harsh
French climate for a
desert animal” and the
red-tape involved in
getting it from
Timbuktu to Paris, he
had second thoughts.
The family entrusted
with the camel’s care
apparently wasted no
time slaughtering the
animal and making it
into a delicious tagine.
While mature camel
is almost inedible the
flesh from young
animals is said to be
nice and tender.
While the camel did
not make it to France,
many other animals
offered as gifts to
French presidents have
done so, among them an
Asian elephant offered
to François Mitterrand,
two Bengal tigers given
to George Pompidou
and some bison
presented to Valérie
Giscard d’Estaing. Most
spent a comfortable
retirement in Paris zoos.
¬ÊWhen President
George Bush Snr visited
Indonesia in 1990 he was
presented with a
Komodo dragon called
Naga by his hosts.
As Komodos are a breed
of giant venomous
flesh-eating lizards there
was no question of Naga
taking up residence in
the White House and so
it was given to
Cincinnati Zoo where
it sired 32 offspring
before dying in 2007.
¬ÊWhen President Saparmurat
Niyazov of Turkmenistan visited
former PM Sir John Major at
Downing Street in 1993 he
presented him with a framed
photograph of his gift: Maksat,
a pure-bred Akhal-Teke stallion, one
of the world’s finest breeds.
But it soon became clear that
Niyazov did not intend to do any of
the heavy lifting involved in
transporting the beast the 4,000
miles from Ashgabat to London.
The Household Cavalry agreed to
take the horse but it was up to
Laura Brady, third secretary at the
British embassy in Moscow, to
arrange delivery.
After six months of tortuous
negotiations with the authorities in
Turkmenistan, the Russian Horse
Society and the French horse
attaché – Niyazov had also offered a
stallion to the then French president
Mitterrand – and EU quarantine
officials, Maksat set off on the first
leg of the journey to the West – a
long train ride to Moscow.
“It was a pretty distressing
journey as you can imagine,” Sir
John said later. “The horse began to
be pretty ill-tempered. Apart from
anything else it had toothache. And
it manifested this by biting people
and generally kicking and
misbehaving.”
The horse and its grooms also
survived an attack by bandits as
they passed through Kazakhstan
and when they entered the Russian
capital the country was in the throes
of a constitutional crisis.
Travelling to the station to greet
Maksat, Brady was forced back by
a gun battle for control of Moscow’s
parliament and when she eventually
arrived she found customs officers
too busy playing poker to release the
horse for his onward journey.
Fortunately the grooms – who had
no money because Turkmenistan
had run out of banknotes the
previous year – had organised a
carriage-load of enormous yellow
melons and these were used to
barter for the horse’s freedom.
When Maksat finally arrived in the
UK he was quickly deemed too
temperamental for the Household
Cavalry and in desperation the Army
called on Lorna Winn-Jones, who ran
stables in Carmarthenshire.
“Maksat came to me in 1996 a sad,
confused and troubled little horse
with a few health issues but he
blossomed into a powerful and
confident stallion who seems happy
in his adopted home of Wales,” she
said in 2013.
The horse went on to win awards
including British showjumping and
performance champion, was part of
the Welsh national endurance team
and qualified for the British
Dressage Championships.

Emerging markets fillip
rewards loyal investors
RIDING THE DRAGON: China has led the charge as equities in emerging markets have finally come back into favour
Maturing bonds
are generating
a lot of interest
GOVERNMENT-BACKED pensioner bonds caused a
sensation at launch three years
ago, as millions of older savers
rushed to take advantage of their
market-beating interest rates.
More than £10billion worth of
bonds are set to mature over the
next few months and many
pensioners will be wondering
what to do with their money.
They will struggle to generate
such an attractive return with
savings rates lower than three
years ago and inflation far higher,
so they need to choose carefully.
9p?Xim\pAfe\j
they want to lock their money
away for three more years. Bowes
added: “To access your funds
early, you would have to pay a
penalty equivalent to 90 days’
interest.”
Those who want early access or
a monthly income should shop
around. She said: “You will need
to contact NS&I by post or online
to switch, as it will not accept
maturity instructions over the
telephone.”
PEER PRESSURE
ROLL WITH IT
There were originally two 65+
Guaranteed Growth Bonds from
National Savings & Investments
(NS&I), one paying 2.8 per cent
over 12 months, the other paying
4 per cent over three years.
More than 885,000 over-65s
invested more than £8.9billion in
the three-year bonds between
January and May 2015, due to
mature between now and May.
If savers do nothing, their cash
will automatically roll over into
NS&I’s recently relaunched
Guaranteed Growth Bonds,
which run for another three years.
Anna Bowes, director of
independent savings website
SavingsChampion.co.uk, said
this pays just 2.20 per cent over
three years: “This will disappoint
savers who were enjoying 4 per
cent a year, but in the current
market, 2.20 per cent is highly
competitive.”
Savers should roll over only if
MoneyComms.co.uk personal
finance expert Andrew Hagger
said pensioner bonds paid way
above market rates when
launched and even more so today:
“There is no chance of earning
anywhere near that figure now
without an element of risk.”
The stock market has
performed well lately and will
tempt some. “However, potential
volatility means it is not suitable
for many pensioners,” he added.
Peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders
such as RateSetter.com are
another option. Hagger said: “It
currently pays 4.3 per cent over
five years, but remember, P2P
lenders are not covered by the
Financial Services Compensation
Scheme (FSCS), which protects
the first £85,000 held in a bank or
building society account.”
The FSCS does cover the new
breed of challenger banks, which
typically offer the best savings
rates these days. He said: “Your
money is as safe as it is with a
high-street bank or NS&I.” He
suggested spreading your money
between best-buy accounts with
different savings terms: “With
interest rates possibly rising,
fixed rates may creep up so avoid
locking away all your cash now.”
Hagger said Charter Savings
Bank currently pays 1.87 per cent
for 18 months, Paragon Bank
pays 2.05 per cent over two years
and Masthaven Bank pays 2.08
per cent for 30 months.
Over three years, United Trust
Bank matches NS&I by paying
2.20 per cent a year, while Charter
Savings Bank offers 2.21 per cent.
REAL WORRY
MoneyToTheMasses.com director Damien Fahy said things have
deteriorated sharply for savers
since 2015: “Three-year pensioner
bonds paid 4 per cent while inflation stood at just 0.3 per cent.
Today, NS&I pays 2.20 per cent,
but inflation has jumped to 3.1
per cent, so they are losing money
in real terms.”
Stock market investors have
done much better over the same
period, with the FTSE 100 rising
35 per cent, but he warned against
piling into shares with global
markets at all-time highs.
Those willing to take more risk
could consider the TwentyFour
Dynamic Bond. Fahy said: “This
is a well diversified bond fund
offering a yield of more than
4.5 per cent and has delivered a
total return of 15.65 per cent over
the last three years.”
AFTER years in the doldrums,
emerging markets roared back
to form to become last year’s
best performing asset class.
Emerging market stocks and
shares returned an astonishing
26 per cent last year, with China
leading the charge. Stocks in the
Asia Pacific region also did well,
returning around 25 per cent.
Emerging giants Brazil,
Russia, India and China were
flying high a decade ago, but
the last five years have been
tough. However, loyal investors
have now been rewarded by
a blistering performance over
the last 12 months.
Tom Stevenson, investment
director at fund manager Fidelity
International, said 2017 saw
global stock markets produce
stellar returns with several
indices hitting all-time highs,
including the UK’s FTSE 100:
“Despite fears of a global
recession and geopolitical
tensions with North Korea, 2017
was a vintage year for investors.”
European stock markets grew
almost 17 per cent, while
Japanese and UK markets rose
more than 13 per cent, and the
US around 11 per cent. However,
it was a tough year for bond
investments, with corporate,
inflation-linked and government
bonds all dipping slightly.
Investors should be careful
about chasing past performance,
but Stevenson said emerging
markets and Asia should
generate strong returns: “Longterm growth remains intact and
valuations are reasonable.”
He also tipped Europe: “This
is our favoured regional market
thanks to a combination of good
growth, a supportive central
bank and reasonable valuations.”

Prepare for your digital death
9p?Xim\pAfe\j
BRITONS are in danger of losing
large sums of money when a loved
one dies because too many of us are
failing to tell our family about wealth
held online.
Two thirds of adults with online
pensions, investments, savings and
bank accounts have failed to inform
next of kin about their accounts.
That money could easily go missing
unless family members know it
actually exists and where it can
be found.
The research from Lloyds Bank,
produced exclusively for the Daily
Express, is a wake-up call for millions
who are failing to take enough care
to document their financial affairs.
As we spend more of our lives
finances as we shift away from paper:
“Digital makes managing your
finances easier, but it can make
things more difficult for next of kin
taking on your financial affairs when
you die, as so many are financially
unprepared for death.”
He says the first step is to talk to
family and friends about your financial position: “This is especially true
for online accounts, which would be
harder to locate if your loved ones
are not aware of them.”
Sheehan suggests preparing a
written list of all your online and
offline accounts and keeping it in a
safe place where others can find it
later: “This will provide important
information for your family and
friends and can help ease stress
during what will be a tough time.”
Your digital wealth may include
much more than just your financial
accounts. “Check the terms and
conditions on any music, books and
films you have purchased digitally
to see if these can also be passed
onto friends and family,” he adds.
You also need to produce details
of any debts that will have to be paid
out of your estate when you die, so
that you do not bequeath a nasty
shock for your loved ones.
online, we all need to prepare for
what happens to our digital legacy
when we finally die.
LOST IN THE NET
CONFUSION: Sort out online world
People take far greater care with
their paper-based finances than
their online accounts.
Many also keep family members
out of the loop, with almost four out
of 10 failing to talk to loved ones
about their personal and financial
affairs should they die, Lloyds’
research shows.
Some are more focused on trivial
concerns, such as wondering what
will happen to their Facebook page
in the event of their death.
Lloyds’ director of bereavement,
Paul Sheehan, says people need to
take more care of their online

LIFE COSTS
Another worry for grieving families
is meeting immediate expenses and
debts after death, but Sheehan says
banks and other financial services
companies should be able to help
with this. For example, insurers
offering over-50s life cover or funeral
plans should quickly release funds
to grieving families.
He says banks should be supportive in an emergency: “They may help
loved ones gain access to the
deceased’s credit balance to fund
funeral expenses and other costs,
such as inheritance tax, probate fees
and confirmation fees, before all the
legal paperwork is sorted.”
WAY TO A WILL
Writing down your wishes on paper
makes them legally blinding, but too
many Britons still fail to make a will,
including almost eight out of 10
under-45s.
Sheehan urges everyone to write
or update their will to avoid legal
complications for loved ones: “You
can draw up a will yourself, but it
makes sense to use a will-writing
service or solicitor instead.”
James Antoniou, head of wills at
Co-op, says January is peak time for
people to amend and update their
wills: “Christmas brings people
together, but it can also lead to
conflicts and family fallouts while
for others New Year is a trigger to
get their finances in order.
“As a result we tend to see a peak
in will amendments coming through
in January.”

CUTTING
EDGE: The
facilities
installed
by Mark
Chambers
and his
staff are
top notch
75 visits a day. According to Chambers,
“Too much of the focus in the past has
been about numbers in the fitness
industry and not about members and
service. Members feel neglected and
then leave, potentially forever. This is
the opposite of what we intend to
achieve. Members will eventually
belong to all clubs in the group.”
LLW has done away with reception
desks in favour of concierges,
individual welcomes and butlers in
changing rooms laying out laundered
gym kit and spa robes.
There is a cutting-edge gym with
top-flight trainers on hand and a
golf academy with its own pro
for tuition. However, for those
paying the £6,000 annual fee
at 3 St James Square,
perhaps the most revealing
moment will be if they opt
for a 3D body scan that,
when linked to DNA testing
with a partner lab, will deliver
a 360-degree inside-and-out
profile.
Chambers explains: “Body
scanning is the biggest element
now in commercial fitness. For our
members it will enable their personal,
dedicated trainers to devise bespoke
goals based on analysis and a lifestyle
consultation.”
If quiet time is needed to digest the
information then some meditation
could be the answer in the club’s
Somadome, pictured, an illuminated
pod radiating healing light and sound
properties.
The Kensington club is expected
to attract more women and will
also include a crèche. “Quality of
experience matters more at every
level now,” observes Chambers. “Our
concept is a template for the future
and very transferable. We’re also
looking where it can apply beyond the
luxury sector.”

Legacy Luxury Wellness (LLW), the
UK company behind a new upmarket
health club with advanced technology
at its core, such as 3D body scanning
linked to DNA testing, has plans for
international expansion.
The first club with the superpersonalised approach, 3 St James
Square in London’s Mayfair, opened
its doors in November. A second in
Kensington, also to be named after
its location, will launch next year,
followed by a rollout to mainland
Europe and the Far East over the next
decade. “There is a clear opportunity
for better facilities, market firsts and
the latest fitness technology in cities
with financial institutions,” says
managing director Mark Chambers.
“London is currently at the centre
of this market and we expect that
to continue. Our all-encompassing
wellness merges technology and
wellbeing solutions, so members can
turn back the clock 10 years.”
Former Fitness First director
Chambers, along with two co-founders
and a minority investor, have put
£3million into the start-up, which
forecasts a £6million turnover this
year and employs 27 with further
recruitment to follow.
After obtaining a change of use from
offices to leisure and licences for the
leased property, which took six
months and “a lot of convincing of our
landlords”, he says: “We walked
through every part of the space and
looked at it through members’ eyes.”
Membership, predicted to be
predominantly men aged 40-plus, will
be capped at 1,000, catering for 50 to

Don’t let the cost
of travel insurance
ruin your trip
Shop around for the right policy and save hundreds
When you spend years saving
up for that special trip, the
last thing you want to find
is that your travel insurance
is unaffordable or takes a
hefty lump away from your
spending money. That’s
what happened to reader
Mr Saw, 72 from Cumbria,
who had been saving for
a trip to Malaysia for his
50th wedding anniversary.
Mr Saw said: “After
booking the holiday, we
decided to check with SAGA,
and I couldn’t believe it
when they told me that
my travel insurance would
cost almost £600. After
seeing Payingtoomuch.com
advertised, I decided to give
/lmx
them a call and spoke to a
friendly and helpful travel
insurance team member who
went through the questions
with me. I was thrilled to be
told that the policy would only
cost £239, over £300 cheaper
than SAGA quoted me.”
Chris Pannell from
Payingtoomuch.com said:
“We use several travel
insurance underwriters
that we work closely with
to ensure that our clients
receive excellent value
for money.”

Green shoots of recovery
A
programme called
Working Class
White Men (C4) in
the listings looked like
a throwback to the
Seventies. Back then
you could find earnest-sounding
documentaries like that all the time
on BBC2, often as part of the Open
University strand. It was a professor
doing the presenting this time, one
Stephen Paul Manderson, aka the
rapper Professor Green.
The Prof, who had reared himself
on a Hackney council estate,
wanted to know why so many
working-class white men were not
working. Why were they failing in
schools, drifting into homelessness?
Where sociologists might put
everything in terms of forces and
factors, Professor Green saw
individuals falling short. He could
Matt Baylis
on last
night’s TV
not help but like Essex wide boy
Denzel, who lived with his mum,
hardly saw his daughter and was
striving to hit the big time.
He was quick to realise though
that Denzel was more into the idea
of being a wheeler-dealer, than
actually doing any wheeling or
dealing. After failed attempts to be
a club promoter, Denzel emerged
again with a yard-wide grin and a
brand new quad bike. He hinted,
stupidly, that an insurance claim for
whiplash had put him in funds. It
wasn’t about where you grew up,
concluded the Prof sadly, it was
more about when you did it, if ever.
In Bolton he met a desperately
sad young man in a homeless
hostel. Orphaned David had been
taken under the wing of Steve, a
burly, older bloke who seemed at
first to be a good influence.
In the absence of jobs,
community or family, though, Steve
had pinned all his bruised pride on
his skin colour. He said there were
no Asian people sleeping on the
streets and that it was because
they’d taken all the council houses.
It didn’t occur to Steve that
perhaps what they had was not
council housing but a community,
an idea of family and of not letting
people slip through the net. Green
Picks of the day
Drama: Kiri, 9pm, C4
Sarah Lancashire, the pride of
Oldham, has come a long way since
her days pulling pints in the Rovers
Return as barmaid Raquel. Starring
roles in Where The Heart Is, Clocking
Off, Last Tango In Halifax and Happy
Valley have made Lancashire (left)
one of the darlings of British television
and tonight she moves into new
territory as social worker Miriam in this
four-part drama that will prove to be a
hit with viewers and critics alike. She
is caught up in a police investigation
when a young girl called Kiri goes
missing on one of her supervised
visits. As the search for her becomes
increasingly intense Miriam is publicly
blamed by the police, the press and
even her colleagues for putting the
young girl at risk.
was delighted when David moved
away from Steve and his flagwaving pals, got a job, a girlfriend
and finally began to smile.
His journey was the answer to
every question Professor Green set
out to ask. The causes might have
been complex but the solution
wasn’t. Work. Relationships.
Responsibilities. Everyone needs
them, wherever they’re from.
Commas, I am told, are routinely
excluded from legal documents
because someone was once sued
over a misplaced one. True or not,
England’s Forgotten
Queen (BBC4) made much of two
words hastily inserted into a
16th century document.
In 1544 the Tudor dynasty faced
oblivion unless an heir could be
found for the ailing King Edward
VI. A will was drawn up, known
as The Devise For The Succession,
naming Edward’s second cousin,
Lady Jane Grey, as the one to
produce a male heir.
While Edward’s health was failing
fast, the phrase concerning Jane’s
“heirs male” was altered to read
“and her heirs male”, giving
England its first Queen. Although
she only reigned for nine days, Jane
set another precedent while holed
up in the Tower.
The Devise was chiefly the
handiwork of the powerful Duke of
Northumberland, who planned that
his son Guildford should be King to
Jane’s Queen. Queen Jane went
ahead and married Guildford but
refused to make him anything more
than a Duke. Ever after, from the
time of Queen Anne to Victoria to
our Elizabeth, no man has become
King of England by marriage.

We do enjoy watching Dr
Xand van Tulleken (left),
his work is always
imaginative, engaging
and, most importantly,
informative. Those three
words certainly describe
his offering tonight as he
conducts the first ever
large-scale experiment
using people to try and
bring about a quantifiable
improvement in air quality
for a single day. However
the odds are stacked
against him and his team
with pollution levels on

Quiz: Britain’s Brightest Family, 8pm, ITV
Stepping away from The Chase to host a quiz show
of her own, Anne Hegerty (above) is out to find the
brightest family in Britain in this new series. Sixteen
families take part in a knockout tournament to win the
coveted title and holiday of a lifetime. Contestants
must answer questions involving literacy, numeracy,
general knowledge and problem-solving skills.

Treachery is afoot in the Dales this evening. Chrissie
betrays Lachlan by telling Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper,
above right) about all his mental health problems as well
as his episode in the attic. Her intention is that she will
end their relationship and leave him with no choice but
to join her in Australia. Elsewhere Brenda is uncertain
how to respond to Bob’s romantic overtures and the
Dingles rally around a family member.

A former prisoner visits
the surgery with a long
list of worrying health
concerns. Dr Anna
Graham (right) decides
that the best plan is to
focus on the most
urgent, infected
cigarette burns that
were originally inflicted
by several other
inmates. Meanwhile, a
young patient with a
painful rash around his
mouth and chin is
treated by Dr David
Jewell and a woman

ncreasingly retirees are looking
at their homes in a new light as a way to boost their finances.
According to Key Retirement, in
the first half of 2017, their customers
had on average £85,247 available to
release.
A lifetime mortgage, the most
popular type of equity release plan,
allows homeowners aged between 55
and 95 to access a tax-free cash lump
sum without having to move house
and downsize. There are typically no
monthly repayments to make as the
loan, plus roll up interest, is repaid
when the plan comes to an end.
How can I spend my money?
You can spend your money
however you like, although any
existing mortgage would need to be
repaid first.
Equity release will reduce the value
of your estate and may affect your
entitlement to means-tested benefits.
Remember a lifetime mortgage is
secured against your home.

A career offering longevity is worth
pursuing. You will always have to update
your skills but this will be a small price to
pay as all industries are changing rapidly.
Instead of making yourself vulnerable,

Be ethical about everything you do.
If you see an opportunity to get ahead at
someone else’s expense, don’t take it. You
don’t want to gain a reputation for being
ruthless. You can always ask an influential
friend to write you a recommendation.

You can break into a lucrative field.
It helps that you are not intimidated by highly
successful people. Your ability to exhibit
grace under pressure will impress a future
employer. They’re looking for someone who
won’t be wrong-footed by displays of wealth.

Attaining financial security and
independence is key for you. If this means
taking a conventional job to gain experience,
so be it. You’ll be able to have more freedom
after paying your dues. If you’re starting your
own business, prepare to work long hours.

Working hard will attract bigger and
better job opportunities. If you get a chance
to earn a commission, grab it. Your powers
of persuasion will make you a top performer.
Being rewarded for your exceptional
salesmanship skills will be refreshing.
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
Working from home will be
profitable. Being able to tailor your work
environment to your specific needs will also
be gratifying. Although you’ll miss the
experience of working with a team, you’ll
benefit from making your own decisions.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Rock gardens are one of the earliest spring-flowering features, so
go over yours, removing dead leaves and weeds. Top up stone mulch, spreading granite
chippings or pea-shingle over the surface and tucking it under rosettes of evergreen plants.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
Don’t hesitate to pursue someone
who has taken your fancy. You usually play
the passive role. Instead of waiting for the
phone to ring, make the call yourself. The
object of your affection will admire your
courage and reciprocate your affection.
0905 789 3704**
Leo July 24 – Aug 23
Having a physical outlet for your
frustrations is important. If you don’t like
games of skill, you can always join an
exercise class. Even taking a brisk walk can
be good for you. The important thing is to
move your body whenever possible.
0905 789 3705**
Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20
Enjoying more time with friends is
important, even if it means cutting back your
hours at work. You tend to put career matters
above everything else. This has contributed
to impressive accomplishments but these
aren’t enough to make you happy.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
It’s important to keep your personal
and professional lives private. Be discerning
about what you post on social media. Even
if you aren’t linked to colleagues, your
comments about a political or cultural
matter could come back to haunt you.
0905 789 3711**
Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
If the object of your affection
doesn’t return your feelings, look elsewhere
for romance. You deserve to be with
someone who adores you. Don’t rely solely
on the internet to find a partner. You could
meet someone special at a local hangout.
Taking an advanced course will
give you a new lease on life. Even if you
struggled with academic matters in the past,
that won’t be the case now. Not only have
you developed better work habits but you’re
also studying a subject you enjoy.

Turmeric’s a tonic
for healthy joints
Y
ou’ve always been active
and you always want to be,
yet time is beginning to tell.
Your joints and muscles are
even more important as you
become older, so when you
recognise that all isn’t quite as
it should be, you need to act.
Anne Evans, 57, is not only a
fitness fanatic but also a keen
dressage rider, so when she started
to notice her movements slowing
down she was determined to find
a solution.
She began to search for something
to offer her joints support without
going down the medicinal route and
came up with turmeric.
“I consider myself fit and active,
yet age does eventually creep up and
you notice these little niggles on a
more frequent basis,” says Anne, of
Cirencester, Gloucestershire, who
has been riding for 20 years and also
enjoys her spare time in the garden.
“Those niggles can
have an impact on the
fun you have and
I was determined
that wasn’t going
to happen to me.”
Anne’s search led
her to Turmeric+,
developed by
Cambridge-based
By George Nichols
diet supplement experts FutureYou.
Anne says: “After much research
with the help of my husband, a
biochemist, I decided that turmeric
was something I should try.
“There are numerous studies that
demonstrate its benefits, so I was
simply left deciding on the best way
to incorporate it into my diet.”
Turmeric is the bright yellow
spice that adds colour to many
curries and despite being seemingly
unassuming, it is rated as one of
nature’s superfoods.
Long-used in Indian medicine, it is
increasingly valued by scientists,
nutritionists and doctors for
improving joint health. Research
shows that it needs to be consumed
daily and in decent
amounts, beyond
even the most avid
curry fan, to reap the
benefits. The
beneficial
component of turmeric is curcumin,
yet that only accounts for three per
cent of standard turmeric powder.
What convinced Anne to try
Turmeric+ was the fact that it
contains only the curcumin from
turmeric and that it is supported
by more clinical studies than any
other turmeric supplement.
“It was the study at the Olympic
research centre in Barcelona that
really caught my eye,” says Anne.
“Knowing it was used by
international footballers and elite
athletes made me think it must be
able to do something for me.”
The curcumin in Turmeric+ is
combined with soy lecithin, a
combination that makes it easy for
the curcumin to be absorbed by the
body. Studies have shown that the
formulation is 30 times more
absorbable than standard turmeric.
Anne has been taking Turmeric+
for almost a year and it is proving to
be a winner. Anne is riding, going to
the gym, taking part in Pilates and
much more – not to mention keeping
up with day-to-day activities with far
more ease than she used to.
“When you discover something this
good you need to share the benefits
– I love the product and have told
many of my friends about it. This fits
my mantra of being fit for your life.”
WAY AHEAD: Turmeric+ is helping Anne to maintain an active lifestyle

iz Earle launched her multimillion-pound beauty products
business from her guest room, so
there are few women better
qualified to advise on the right
way to set up a home office. It’s
the flexibility she highlights, particularly
for women, and says: “From escaping
the daily commute to spending more
time with the family, there’s a host of
benefits to be had, particularly from a

David Barrett, John Lewis living and

CEO defends Persimmon payout
PERSIMMON boss Jeff Fairburn
has defended an incentive plan
that could deliver him a £110million shares payout, as the housebuilder looks set to top profit
forecasts.
About 140 managers at the
company could land share
bonuses worth £800million in
2021 from a long-term scheme
whose conditions were set in
2012, before the Government
announced measures to get more
people on the housing ladder.
Fairburn said: “This scheme
was launched when the business
was looking to move forward.”
Persimmon’s annual revenue
rose 9 per cent to £3.42billion as
sales increased by 6 per cent to
16,043, with the average selling
price up 3 per cent to £213,300.
Byron plans slimmer estate Yodel boss is Eurostar arrival
BURGER chain Byron could close
up to 20 restaurants as part of a
financial rescue plan.
The chain, which runs 67 restaurants and employs about 1,800 people across the UK, aims to agree a
company voluntary arrangement to
lower its rental bill.
CEO Simon Cope said it needs to
make “some critical and difficult
changes to the size and shape of our
estate”.
Accountancy firm KPMG, which is
handling the process, stressed no
restaurants will close on day one,
adding: “Completion of this financial
restructuring is conditional on the
approval of the CVA proposal.”
THE boss of delivery company Yodel
is set to board Eurostar as the new
chief executive of the rail operator.
Mike Cooper will take over in
March from Nicolas Petrovic, who is
leaving after seven years to become
CEO of engineering and technology
group Siemens in France.

RUGBY LEAGUE: TRIBUTES PAID TO PNG STAR
ROSS
HEPPENSTALL
REPORTS
WIDNES are rallying
around the family of
Kato Ottio following his
sudden death.
Ottio,
23,
signed
from
Canberra Raiders after helping
Papua New Guinea reach the
quarter-finals of the 2017
World Cup. He died at the
Pacific International Hospital
in Port Moresby in the early
hours of yesterday morning.
The centre collapsed due to
a “sudden health issue” during
a road run with his former
PNG Hunters team-mates.
The news has rocked rugby
league in the southern and
northern hemispheres and will
delay prop Wellington Albert’s
arrival from the PNG Hunters
as he undergoes counselling in
the wake of Ottio’s passing.
Albert was due to fly to
England with Ottio tomorrow
and the pair were set to share a
house together in Widnes.
Widnes coach Denis Betts
said: “I’m still in shock.
I spoke to Kato
on Saturday and
he was excited
about coming to
play for us.
“It’s hard to
believe because
we
had
just
got bedding and
other
things
like crockery
today
for
the place
where
he and
We’re all
shocked
by Ottio
tragedy
Wellington were going to live.
To get this news is devastating,
and our thoughts are with his
family.”
Ottio made his Papua New
Guinea debut against Fiji
in May 2015 and went on to
earn six caps. He played
in all three of their
group games in
Picture: BRENDON RATNAYAKE
Port Moresby during the
World Cup in the autumn and
scored a try in their thumping
50-6 win over Wales.
His final international game
was the quarter-final defeat by
England in Melbourne on
November 19.
Widnes have set up an online
fund-raising scheme to support
Ottio’s family and say they will
make
their
own
private
donation.
The
club
have
also
announced there will be a
bucket collection at Friday’s
pre-season friendly against
Whitehaven, before which there
will be a minute’s silence.
Widnes chief executive James
Rule said: “Wellington Albert
sent me an email with the
horrendous news that he’d
passed away.
“We’re all numb and pretty
much in shock here. It
happened very quickly.
“The physicality, his raw
physical attributes, would
have made him a hero with
our supporters.
“There was potential for him
to be a real star of the game
outside of just our fanbase.”
PNG Hunters coach Michael
Marum said of Albert: “We will
make sure Wellington is in the
right mind before he leaves
here. Currently his mind is
not right so we are trying to
give him assistance.
“Not only Wellington but the
other players as well.”
Players
throughout
the
game paid tribute to Ottio,
with new Warrington signing
Sitaleki Akauola saying: “I
didn’t know Kato personally
but we crossed paths on the
footy field and at the end of
the day we are one big rugby
family. Condolences to friends
and family.”

CRICKET: ENGLAND COACH SETS QUIT DATE
Daily Express Wednesday January 10 2018
51
Picture: JASON McCAWLEY
CAUGHT OUT:
Bayliss was in
charge of a
dire Ashes
campaign and
will not return
in four years
Bayliss out
after final
Ashes f ling
TREVOR
BAYLISS
says planning for the
next Ashes here in
Australia must start
now but he has no
intention of sticking
around to see the
job through.
The England coach,
who has overseen the
4-0 defeat Down
Under, will quit his
job after the home
Ashes series next
year.
But
he
maintained that
announcing
his
departure
date
will not stop him
taking
tough
choices in order to
ensure the next
generation
of
players is ready to
challenge Australia
in four years’ time.
“I told Andrew
Strauss
12
months
ago
that I will
be finishing
up
after
September
2019. After four
or five years it is
time to move on
whether you are
doing well or not –
a new voice that
type of thing,” said
Bayliss.
“But I want to leave
the job having helped
England into a position
of
strength
going
forward, not just look
after results for me. It
has never been about me
or the coach. It is about
the team you’re working for
and making them as good as
possible in the future.”
Bayliss was brought in by
Strauss, director of England
cricket, in the aftermath of a
hapless 2015 World Cup in
Australia and New Zealand
to improve the fortunes of
the white-ball teams – and
given the Champions Trophy
in 2017 and World Cup next
year as targets.
He has made significant
progress for all that the first
of those has already been
missed, with England losing
to
eventual
winners
Pakistan in the semi-final
Gideon
BROOKS
IN SYDNEY
last summer. In prioritising a
decent showing on home turf
in the second of those, the
World Cup next year, the
ECB backed themselves into
a corner where they were
never going to ditch Bayliss
however
badly
they
performed in the Ashes.
That will sit uncomfortably
with many, given how badly
they have been beaten,
particularly as Bayliss has
been noticeably hands-off in
his approach to the point
of not really influencing
decisions on or off the field.
Strauss is tackling more
important battles off the
field with wife Ruth
undergoing cancer
treatment, which
makes any kneejerk reactions
to this series
unlikely. But
there will be a
demand
for
new
playing
personnel
if
England fail to
improve in New
Zealand.
The appointment of
Chris Silverwood, above, as
bowling coach looks like
succession planning given he
has experience of the County
Championship, is English
and well regarded by the ECB
hierarchy after good work
with Yorkshire and Essex.
But much can happen
between now and 2019 for all
that Bayliss admitted having
Silverwood has already added
energy to the group.
“It’s exciting that he’s on
board and he’s full of beans,”
said Bayliss. “He got here a
few days ago and he has
jumped into the sessions
already with the one-day
boys. That will be a focus of
his going forward, making
sure that some of these
young bowlers who come into
the squad get up to speed as
quick as possible.”
Further down the line,
balancing the demands of
producing a battle-hardened
unit to tackle the Aussies
here next time with winning
series in the meantime and
trying to win the World Cup
will not be easy – a point
Bayliss conceded.
“With one-day cricket you
have a carrot every four years
but with Test cricket you
want to win every series and
you have three or four a
year,” said the coach.
“Some are held in higher
regard than others, like the
Ashes and India series, so
there is a different planning
that has to go into that.
“If we make a decision that
the away Ashes series is the
holy grail, you have to get
guys in well ahead of 12
months out to give them
enough experience so they
can perform well.”
England have stuck with
James Vince and Mark
Stoneman for the upcoming
tour of New Zealand despite
their underwhelming
returns with the
bat in the Ashes.
But
Bayliss
appeared
to
suggest that if
they fail in
New Zealand,
they could be
out before the
summer.
He
said:
“Those two guys
have done enough
without anyone really
pushing them from behind
and they probably deserve
another opportunity.
“Vince has looked as
comfortable as anyone in the
runs he has scored here but
then keeps making a mistake
and gets out. They have been
similar each time and that
frustrates him more than any
of us.
“It’s
probably
a
bit
technical but a lot of it is the
mental side, knowing which
balls to leave and when to
attack and when not to.
“Both Vince and Stoneman,
along with Dawid Malan,
were probably our best
performing batters in the
first three games. Whether it
was the pressure and the
longevity of five Test matches
close to each other or
whether there was a fatigue
and [their efforts] dropped off
in the last couple of games, I
don’t know. It could be that
this being their first big fivematch series took its toll.”
After a few years, it’s time to go
whether you’re doing well or not
REMAINER: Leicester say Youngs wants to stay
Bristol won’t
get claws on
Tiger Ben
LEICESTER have
rejected speculation
big-spending Bristol
are about to poach Ben
Youngs and expressed
their desire to keep the
England scrum-half at
Welford Road for the
rest of his career.
Youngs, 28, who has
73 caps for his country,
is out of contract at the
end of the season and
has been linked with a
move to the unbeaten
Championship leaders.
They have deep
pockets thanks to the
backing of millionaire
owner Steve Lansdown
and have already
signed up Ulster
full-back Charles
Piutau for next season
on a salary of £950,000.
However, Leicester
head coach Matt
O’Connor announced
yesterday that Youngs
is going nowhere.
“He won’t be at
Bristol,” said O’Connor.
“We have
had several
conversations
with Benny
and his
intent is to
be at the
Tigers.
“We’d be
devastated if
he left but all
the indicators are that
he will be here next
year and hopefully play
out his career here.”
Leicester are likely to
announce a contract
extension for Youngs
stretching beyond the
next World Cup in the
coming weeks and they
could be about to add
further to their backline
riches with the
signature of Argentina’s
Santiago Cordero.
The 24-year-old, who
can play at wing or
full-back, is leaving the
Buenos Aires-based
Jaguares and eyeing a
move to Europe.
“He’s a quality player
who we think would
add a lot to the group,”
said O’Connor. “We’ve
had a conversation
with him around that
but it’s nowhere near a
certainty.”
Cordero would be an
exciting addition but
Leicester’s priority
RUGBY UNION
By Neil Squires
should really be the
recruitment of extra
forward ball carriers
after been found
wanting in that
department.
“We’re probably a bit
underpowered in the
forwards at the
moment and I think
we need to address
that. We probably need
a bit more bulk,” said
O’Connor.
“The front rowers are
exceptional – as good
as anywhere in Europe
– but behind that we
probably need a bit
more depth.
“I think we’re a
better squad than last
season – we are set up
better to win big games
– but this season has
been nowhere near
good enough with the
expectation that goes
with the Tigers.
“There’s a lot
of good
conversations
going on at
the moment
and by the
time we get
to September
we’ll have a
squad
capable of
competing at the top
table in the Premiership
and Europe.”
Wales have been
dealt another back-row
blow with Dan Lydiate
ruled out for the rest of
the season with a
biceps injury.
The luckless Lydiate,
who has played only
10 games for the
Ospreys in two years,
joins Sam Warburton,
Taulupe Faletau and
Ross Moriarty on the
injured list with the Six
Nations approaching.
Moriarty’s
Gloucester team-mate
Jake Polledri has been
called into Italy’s
squad for the first time.
Polledri, 22, who was
born in Bristol but
played for Italy at
junior level, was named
in a 34-man squad
yesterday ahead of the
Six Nations meeting
with England in Rome
on February 4.
We’d be
devastated
if he left

ARSENE WENGER has come out
fighting amid fresh criticism of his
Arsenal reign.
The Gunners manager has faced a
backlash from fans and pundits after
selecting a weakened side who crashed
out of the FA Cup at Nottingham
Forest on Sunday.
It was the first time in Wenger’s
21-year tenure his side had lost in
the third round. But Wenger, who
has lifted the trophy a record
seven times, launched a staunch
defence of his record. He said:
“Nobody has won the FA Cup more

than I did, but still it is seen as an
absolute disaster. You have to say I’ve
won the FA Cup seven times and on top
of that people are always scandalised.
“Get somebody to win it more and
then I’ll say, ‘OK, well done’. But
nobody in the whole history of English
football won it more, so I always took
the competition in a serious way.
“I am unhappy to go out? Of course,
but you must accept as well that
there’s no guarantee you will win it
every year. You want the fans to be

returning after missing
Saturday’s FA Cup 0-0
draw with Norwich.
Conte is adamant he
wants to reach the final
because the chance of
retaining the league title
looks unlikely thanks
to Manchester City’s
relentless progress.
“When you start the
season
you
try
to
do
the
best
in
every competition,” said
Conte. “Now it is very
difficult to fight for the
title because there is a
team doing something
extraordinary. We are in
the semi-final and our
task is to try to reach
the final, then to try to
win this trophy. Yes, I’d
like that.”
The Chelsea manager
also admitted he was
disappointed to miss
out on Virgil van Dijk,
the Dutch defender who
was a target last summer
but instead moved to
Liverpool in a £75million
deal this month.
He said: “This is
football. For sure he was
our target. We can have
a lot of targets but you
must be able to reach
those
targets.
The
transfer market is not
simple for any club.”
Meanwhile, Andreas
Christensen has signed
a new four-and-a-halfyear deal at Chelsea.
The Dane, 21, has
shone since returning
from a loan spell in
Germany in the summer
and has recently made
himself first choice at
centre-back.
happy – that is what you work for.
Everybody wants to win the cup.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal plan to fine Alex
Iwobi for breaking the club’s 48-hour
curfew to attend a birthday party.
Iwobi, who played the whole game at
Forest, was pictured partying at 2am
on Saturday. Wenger said: “If it is true,
he’ll be fined, it’s impossible to go out
before the game, it’s unacceptable. I
will see him to see if it’s right or not.”

It was there he was

Beardsley has been
one of the few former
Toon players to openly
support Mike Ashley’s

not gone down well with
the vast majority of fans
who idolised him during
two spells with the club.
It is understood that
on at least one occasion
when a manager left
St James’ Park, Ashley
considered handing him
the job on a caretaker
basis despite his lack of
experience.
This is his second
spell as an academy
coach, having initially
returned to the club in
2009 in an
ambassadorial role.
Beardsley insists he
is innocent, claiming
he is the victim of
“inaccurate media

from unauthorised
leaks”.
A statement issued
through his solicitors
said: “Allegations of
unfair treatment have
been made, which are

would go on and establish a
commanding lead for the
second leg.

League teams that come to
the Etihad. We will take an
awful lot from it. It’s not
over. It’ll be an interesting
game at Ashton Gate.
“The away goal was very
important. We tried to score
and certainly didn’t park
the bus.
“I’m very proud of my
team. I’m disappointed with
their goal late on but the
boys were magnificent. The
lads can’t be disappointed,
as we are still in the tie.
They have shown the world
we are good footballers.
“They showed confidence
and weren’t frightened to be
on the ball.”
City boss Guardiola
praised the Robins – fourth
in the Championship – but
also his own team for
grabbing yet another late
winner after Kevin De
Bruyne had cancelled out
Bobby Reid’s first-half
penalty. “We knew they
would be difficult
opponents,” said Guardiola.
“They were really good.
The Championship is
probably the hardest
second division in the world
because there are 46
matches and play-offs later.
“It is why there are a
lot of shocks in the cups.
But our spirit is fantastic.
Without that spirit you
can’t win trophies in any
competition.”
City’s rescue
confidence in a first half which
showed they were not daunted
by the runaway Premier League
leaders.
And it was certainly not a
simple containment exercise.
Joe Bryan and Marlon Pack
both forced good saves out of
Claudio Bravo, while the Robins
worried City by winning a
number of corners.
City went into the game
without Gabriel Jesus, out
injured, and Aguero left on
the bench. They had the
bulk
of
possession
but
uncharacteristically were let
down by some poor final passes
and shooting.
De Bruyne, skipper for the
night, tested Frank Fielding
with two shots that were
heading for the top corner and
the Robins’ keeper also saved
with his legs from Leroy Sane.
But it was an open game and
City were stunned a minute
before the break when the
Robins took the lead through
Reid’s penalty. The two guilty
parties for City were their
central defenders. Eliaquim
Mangala gave the ball away
and then John Stones brought
down Reid as he raced on to
Josh Brownhill’s pass.
It was an easy decision for
referee Anthony Taylor and
Reid picked himself up to beat
Bravo from the spot.
City came close to an
equaliser just before half-time
when from a typical pacy break
Raheem Sterling exchanged
passes with Silva and lobbed
a shot over the advancing
Fielding. It looked a goal but
Aden Flint scrambled back to
head the ball over the bar and
send the Robins in at the break
with their noses in front.
City stepped up the tempo at
the start of the second half and
squandered two chances before
equalising. Just as it looked like
it might be one of those nights
for City, they equalised after a
classic pitch-length move.
Bravo picked out De Bruyne
with a clearance. The City
skipper
ran
50
yards
unchallenged before slipping
the ball to Sterling, whose
return pass was fired home by
De Bruyne. For the first time
the Robins looked rattled. Flint
had to obstruct De Bruyne
after leaving a back-pass short
and was booked and he was
relieved when De Bruyne’s freekick crashed against the wall.
It was the signal for Guardiola
to send on the cavalry in the
shape of Aguero in the hope of
snatching a winner. The little
Argentinian did not let him or
his team down with his
19th goal of the season to keep
City’s quadruple bid on track.

THE FA have vowed to
interview at least one
ethnic minority
candidate for the post
of England manager
when Gareth Southgate
leaves the job.
As part of a raft of
new initiatives
announced yesterday
aimed at increasing
diversity and
promoting equality
throughout football,
FA chief executive
Martin Glenn pledged
to follow the principles
of the NFL’s “Rooney
Rule” when filling any
vacant post at the
organisation in future.
Why not just give the
position to the best
person for the job?
Goodness knows,
Glenn’s job appointing
the last two England
managers was hard
enough without
fulfilling any quotas.
Sam Allardyce’s
controversial selection
was the
result of a
lack of real
stand-out
candidates
and quickly
backfired.
Southgate
himself
emerged
from a frantic
fog of desperation, his
cool-headed approach
as caretaker helping
England out of the
post-Euro 2016
doldrums sufficiently
enough to merit the
role when there really
was no Plan B.
In future, Glenn
wants to create one of
those artificially,
promising an interview
to at least one
candidate from a black,
Asian or minority
ethnicity (BAME)
background.
“That principle will
absolutely apply,” he
insisted. “We’re doing
this for two reasons. In
soft terms because it is
the right thing to do
but there is also a
business case for it.
“If your management
team reflects more the
people that you are
serving, then you’re
going to make correct
decisions. What we’re

seeing now is more
BAME players and
what we want to do is
make sure that, post
their playing career,
there’s an opportunity
for them to carry on
contributing and that
they feel the FA is also
for them.”
All 72 EFL clubs
adopted a similar
philosophy at their
AGM last month.
However, at the very
top of the game, the
Premier League say
they have no plans to
follow suit.
Currently, the only
non-white manager in
the top flight is
Brighton’s Chris
Hughton. That
one-in-20 ratio in the
dugout compares with
the fact that exactly a
third of the players
who kicked
off this
season in the
Premier
League were
from BAME
backgrounds.
That was
the sort of
discrepancy
in American
football that drove Dan
Rooney to spearhead a
move to get more of
those players involved
in coaching when they
hung up their boots.
The presence of a
few different faces in
the interview chair
initially ticked a few
boxes. Then it may
have opened some
minds. Perhaps it even
introduced a different
style of candidate.
Slowly, the numbers
crept up. Two NFL
head coaches out of
the 32 in 2003 – a
record eight today.
Positive
discrimination? Maybe.
But in the cut-throat
world of American
franchise sports, one
thing is for sure. All
eight of them will have
been the very best
person for the job,
whatever route
they took to the
interview room.
There’s a
business
case for it

CONTE SAYS
WAR WITH
JOSE IS
PERSONAL
MAN CITY 2
ANTONIO CONTE has no regrets over his
war of words with Jose Mourinho and
says the row is personal.
Chelsea manager Conte, whose side
face Arsenal in the first leg of
their Carabao Cup semi-final at
Stamford Bridge tonight, says
he will “not forget the serious
words” in his bitter feud with
the Manchester United boss.
Conte, left, first responded
to Mourinho’s jibe about
“clowns” on the touchline by
accusing the Portuguese of

“senile dementia,” later claiming he had
meant to say amnesia.
Then, when former Chelsea manager
Mourinho referred to a match-fixing
scandal in Italy that Conte was cleared
of, the Italian responded by calling the
Portuguese “a little man” and “fake”.
Yesterday Conte was in no mood to
back down. When asked if he regretted
his words, he pointed to his stern face
and said: “I have this look, of a person
that regrets? I don’t think so. I think we
both said things, and we’ll see what
happens in the future.”
Asked if the row could damage the
reputations of the two clubs, Conte was
dismissive, saying: “This is not a
problem for the club, it’s a problem
between me and him. I stop.”
The League Managers Association
and FA have refused to get involved in
the row and Conte made it clear there
was no point, saying: “It’s not
important, [involving] the association.
He used serious words. I won’t forget

England lose Marler to ban
JOE MARLER will miss
England’s first two games of
the Six Nations after being
banned for six weeks last
night following his sendingoff on Saturday.
Marler will sit out the game
against Italy in Rome on
February 4 and the clash with
Wales at Twickenham the
following
Saturday
after
pleading guilty to driving his
shoulder into the head of
TJ Ioane at a ruck during
Harlequins’ 30-29 league loss
By Neil Squires
at Sale. It was an act of
retribution from Marler after
Ioane struck the England
prop with his arm – an
incident that earned the Sale
man a two-week ban.
An RFU panel took into
account Marler’s chequered
disciplinary
history
in
suspending
him
until
February 20, but did also
factor in his “plea, his
conduct since the incident
took
place
and
other
personal mitigation,” said
chairman Philip Evans QC.
Marler, has already served
a three-match suspension
this season for a violent
response to being held by
Wasps’ Will Rowlands. He
also served bans in 2011
and 2016, the latter for
calling

prop
Samson Lee “gypsy boy”.

suspend
coach in
bully row
By Peter Edwards
NEWCASTLE legend
Peter Beardsley has
been suspended by the
club over allegations of
racism and bullying.
The 56-year-old, who
is in charge of the
Under-23 squad, has
been told to “take a
period of leave” while
Toon officials carry out a
thorough investigation.
Beardsley, below,
one of Newcastle’s
greatest players, is the
subject of a spate of
complaints from
youth-team players.
And if he is found
guilty, a man who
captained
England once
and played in
the 1990
World Cup
semi-final, is
likely to be
sacked by his
home-town club.
Yasin Ben
El-Mhanni was the first
to officially complain
about his conduct. He
claims Beardsley
regularly picked on him,
directed snide
comments to him and
left the 22-year-old out
of the team for no
obvious reasons.
El-Mhanni, who made
his senior debut last
term but has not figured
in Rafa Benitez’s squad
this season, has received
witness support
statements from several
team-mates.
Beardsley is also
accused of picking on
two African players.
They claim that he made
comments of a racist
nature, on one occasion,
