yesterday’s
celebration
Tickling sticks were added to Paul McCartney’s statue
SIR Ken Dodd was famous for
keeping his audiences in
stitches way past their bedtime
and his funeral in Liverpool
was no exception yesterday,
overrunning by half an hour.
The celebration saw thousands of well-wishers, including
children in Diddymen outfits
and armed with tickling sticks,
pay tribute as the shire horsedrawn hearse travelled from
his home in Knotty Ash to the
city’s Anglican Cathedral.
Sir Ken died aged 90 just
9p:_i`jI`Z_\j
Xe[AXe;`jc\p
days after marrying his partner
of 40 years Anne Jones. Fellow
Liverpool comic Jimmy Tarbuck summed up the star’s
contribution to British comedy
with one word – “happiness”.
He said: “He sang Happiness
because he gave happiness.”
He added: “He was the greatest stage comedian I’ve ever
seen in my life.”
Applause rang out as Sir
Ken’s wooden casket was
carried into the cathedral,
adorned with a bouquet of
sunflowers atop a trademark
Diddymen wreath. Another
comic Jimmy Cricket gave a
gospel reading and described
Sir Ken as “one of the most
gifted comedians”.
He said: “Ken always said his
gift, his talents, were from God
and comedians like Ken, they
only come once in a lifetime.
“We thank God today.”
A recording of the comedian
singing Absent Friends was
played
before
Diddymen
followed Anne and family as
they left for a private internment.
Other celebrity mourners
who flocked to the funeral
included Les Dennis, Tom
O’Connor and Claire Sweeney.
Royle Family star Ricky
Tomlinson said: “He was just a
one-off, wasn’t he? You can’t
compare anyone with Doddy.”

BORIS Johnson has today declared
that Brexit has become “an unstoppable express” as an opinion poll shows
that nearly two thirds of voters now
want the EU referendum result to be
honoured in full.
Writing in the Daily Express, which
has led the campaign for us to quit the
EU, the Foreign Secretary hailed the
“glorious” future ahead when we depart
one year from today.
He said: “Our national journey out of
the EU is almost over – and a glorious
view awaits.”
A total of 65 per cent of voters in the
survey did not want a second referendum on Britain’s membership of the
bloc, the online survey of more than
2,000 adults found.
Mr Johnson’s upbeat assessment
came as an exclusive ComRes survey
for the Daily Express last night showed
68 per cent of Britons think that those
who voted against quitting the EU
“should respect the majority” for
Leave.

65% say ‘No’ to
2nd referendum
Four in 10 people who voted Remain
in the 2016 referendum now agree that
the Leave vote should be respected,
according to the poll commissioned to
mark one year to go until the UK
formally leaves the EU.
In his exclusive article for the Daily
Express, Mr Johnson said: “It’s exactly
a year from today that Britain will be
out of the European Union and reengaging with the rest of the world.
“Like an unstoppable express, we are
heading for Brexit and frankly my
friends, we can’t arrive soon enough.”
The massive support for the Government getting on with delivering Brexit
in the Daily Express/ComRes poll
compares with 52 per cent who voted
for Leave and 48 per cent for Remain in
the in-or-out EU referendum in 2016.
Britons are now overwhelmingly
optimistic about the country’s prospects for “taking back control” of
domestic policy making after the
country quits the EU, the ComRes
survey said.
Brexit supporters seized on the Daily
Express/ComRes poll findings last night
as confirmation that Theresa May
needed to “get on” with Brexit.
Senior Tory Sir William Cash,
chairman of the Commons European
Scrutiny Committee, said: “I thoroughly
welcome this breath of democratic fresh
air. It is time that the Remoaners and
reversers accepted the will of the
people.”
Former Tory Cabinet minister Priti
THERESA May and
her Cabinet are
under no illusions
that the toughest
phase of the Brexit
negotiations is
about to
commence.
After months of
wrangling over the size of the
divorce bill and details of the
transition out of the bloc, from next
month the two sides have to focus
on thrashing out a framework for
how Britain’s future relationship
with the EU will work.
A massive gulf remains between
the “deep and special partnership”
Mrs May envisages and the off-theshelf deal that the EU’s chief
negotiator Michel Barnier still
insists is all that is on the table if
Britain is quitting the bloc’s single
market and customs union.
British negotiators accept the
Prime Minister’s initial hope that
businesses enjoy the same EU
marketplace access that they do
today is not achievable. They are
urging a deal to
leave trade in goods
virtually unchanged,
while accepting
some degree of
increased restriction
Gfc`k`ZXc<[`kfi on trade in services.
The aim is to
minimise “friction”
– tariffs, quotas and customs
checks – in any future trade deal,
without pretending they can be
avoided altogether.
Within Whitehall, there is a feeling
that the drive towards a deal sagged
at the beginning of the year and
British negotiators are pressing for
a rapid resumption of trade talks.
The issue of the Northern Ireland
border is still understood to be a
major sticking point, but fears the
talks could collapse without a deal
appear to have subsided.
This Easter, Mrs May is holidaying
in Wales and the rest of her team is
hoping for some downtime. They
will need to be fully refreshed for a
rocky, but not insurmountable path
ahead over the next few months.

Patel, a leading figure in the Vote Leave
campaign, said: “It’s time political
leaders here and in Europe paid
attention to the voice of the British
people.
“We voted to leave the EU and our
people want to get on and take back
control.”
Richard Tice, co-chairman of the
Brexit-backing pressure group Leave
Means Leave, said: “It is fantastic to see
that the overwhelming majority of
people – including many people who
voted to remain – want the result of the
EU referendum to be respected.
“In Britain we have a very long history
of democracy and this poll shows that
people are extremely proud of that.
“With one year to go until we leave
the EU and are a free, independent,
global nation again, this poll should give
the Government the encouragement it
needs to get on and deliver a clean,
swift, Brexit.”
Peter Bone, another Tory MP and
long-standing Brexit supporter, said:
“This poll reflects exactly what I hear
on the doorsteps every week.
“The fact that the economy has not
crashed and is growing and interest
rates have remained low has convinced
most people that the Government just
needs to get on with Brexit.”
K?<I<J8FEKFLI
THE Prime Minister last night
vowed to heal the bitter divisions
over Brexit by building a country
that is “strong and united”.
Ahead of a frenetic one-day
tour of the UK to mark the
countdown to leaving the EU,
Mrs May insisted Britain’s new
role in the world could be “a
success for everyone”.
Mrs May will start today by
visiting textile workers at a
factory in Ayrshire, before
travelling to Newcastle to meet a
local parent-and-toddler group.
She will have lunch with
farmers near Belfast before
travelling to Barry, South Wales,
to meet local businesses,
followed by tea in west London
with Polish citizens who have
made the UK their home.
l Mrs May will take a short
walking holiday in Wales over the
Easter weekend, Downing Street
confirmed yesterday. She
opened the last Prime Minister’s
Questions of the term by wishing
MPs “a very happy Easter”.

n People in Britain are most optimistic
that, after Brexit, Britain will be able to
make more of its own laws (57%), that UK
defences will remain as strong as they are
today (52%) and that the UK will have more
control over its borders (50%)
n There is also more optimism about
Britain negotiating trade deals with non-EU
countries to benefit the UK economy (52%
optimistic compared to 32% pessimistic)
THERE comes a moment in
every great journey when
the destination can be
spotted on the horizon.
That time is upon us now
because it is exactly a year
from today that Britain will
be out of the European
Union and re-engaging with
the rest of the world.
Now is the time for us all
to come together in support
of our departure from the
EU.
That is why today the
Prime Minister will travel to
all four corners of the UK to
make the case for Brexit.
Never mind that Tony Blair
persists in claiming that
Brexit will not happen. Avert
your gaze from that
perpetual Labour leadership
contender Owen Smith, who
demands a second
referendum because his
side lost and he wants a
rematch.
Like an unstoppable
express, we are heading for
Brexit and, frankly my
friends, we can’t arrive soon
enough.
Looking ahead, we can
already see the contours of
the new world that awaits
us. Months of painstaking
negotiations have started to
fill in the canvas.
After our departure from
the EU next March, there will
be a short and strictly

“implementation period”
lasting until December 2020.
The aim is to give British
business enough time to
prepare for the
opportunities ahead.
Do not listen to those who
say that nothing will change
during that relatively brief
interval. We will immediately
regain the ability to
negotiate, sign and ratify
free trade deals – in short, to
make our own way in the
world.
These freedoms are vital
because 80 per cent of the
world economy – and 90 per
cent of world economic
growth – lies outside the EU.
Look at the booming
markets of Asia. India, with
more than a billion people,
is one of the fastest-growing
economies in the world. The
Pacific Rim, is increasingly
the epicentre of global
commerce.
Remember our old friends
in the Commonwealth, who
are gathering in London
next month for one of the
biggest summits in our
history. If you go through

n The division between
Leavers and Remainers is

second referendum. Overall,
35% want one while 65% are

the view that “those who
voted against Brexit should
respect the will of the
majority”, while 32% prefer
the view that “Remainers
who are calling for Brexit to

the EU since we decided to
join back in 1972.
It was nearly 50 years ago
that Edward Heath ignored
the advice of the Daily
Express and took us into
what we then called the
Common Market.
Since then, we have
struggled to resist the
incoming tides of European
federalism, sending our best
diplomats to Brussels not to
get things done for the sake
of the country, but to wage
often futile arguments to
stop things that would
damage our interests.
We tried to make
membership work, but for all
the best intentions of its
founders, the EU never
evolved to meet the
distinctive needs of an
outward-looking global
Britain, with friends in every
corner of the world.
Today, we are looking
forward to agreeing a
partnership with our
European neighbours that
will serve all our interests.
The remarkable response
to the terrible events in
Salisbury, with 23 countries
choosing to expel 116
Russian diplomats, shows
the strength of Britain’s
influence and alliances.
Our national journey out

Remainers who want Brexit halted should
be given a prominent platform, almost four

n When asked whether the UK’s departure
from the EU will lead to closer political
union more quickly, or whether Brexit and
the rise of populist parties will cause
deeper EU divisions, the public are
downbeat – three quarters (74%) expect
deeper EU divisions post-Brexit, while only
26% expect closer political union without
the UK holding the EU back
n However, this time Remainers and
Leavers think along similar lines, with
between seven and eight in 10 of both
groups taking the view that Brexit and
populist parties will exacerbate divisions
between EU member states

Easter treats ‘trigger asthma’
Chocolate eggs are a threat
EASTER treats such as chocolate
eggs, hot cross buns or even taking
part in outdoor egg hunts could
trigger deadly asthma attacks,
experts warned yesterday.
People with allergies to wheat,
eggs, nuts and dairy products as well
as having asthma are being urged to
avoid eating chocolate eggs, Simnel
cake, which is made with almonds, or
hot cross buns which could trigger a
reaction.
Other popular holiday activities
such as outdoor egg hunts could also
cause asthma attacks in people who
are sensitive to pollen.
Research by the charity Asthma
UK has revealed that hundreds of
people are at risk of being admitted to
hospital during the Bank Holiday
9pCXliXD`ce\
weekend, due to food and pollen
allergies.
Data sourced from NHS Digital
(England), ISD Scotland and NHS
Wales have shown there were an average of 748 emergency admissions for
asthma attacks during the four-day
celebration between 2014 and 2016.
Asthma affects at least 5.4 million
people in the UK, roughly one in 12
adults and one in 11 children. The
long-term inflammatory condition
causes coughing, wheezing and breathlessness and can also be fatal. Asthma
attacks occur every 10 seconds in the
UK and three people die from an
asthma attack every day.
When sufferers come into contact
with a food allergen, it causes their
immune system to overreact and
release a chemical called histamine.
This causes an allergic reaction
which can include red, itchy, watery
eyes and nose, sneezing, a scratchy
or sore throat and itchy skin. For
people with asthma this can then
trigger an attack in which the airways tighten, leaving victims
wheezing and gasping for breath.
According to data by Asthma UK,
an estimated 4.3 million Britons with
asthma believe that their symptoms
are triggered by pollen. At this time of
year many trees are releasing pollen
into the air.
Pollen allergies can irritate the nose,
eyes and throat causing typical hay
fever symptoms such as sneezing,
itchy eyes and a runny or blocked nose
which can also lead to asthma
attacks.
Dr Andy Whittamore, a practising
GP and clinical lead of Asthma UK,
said: “Lots of people love getting
involved in traditional Easter activities, chomping on chocolate eggs and
racing around their garden or local
park on an Easter egg hunt but Easter
could be deadly for some people with
asthma. Many people may not realise
that trees begin releasing their pollen
as early as January, so they may be
caught out with hay fever symptoms
over the Easter weekend.
I`jb
“Taking hay fever medicines, which
include antihistamines as well as nasal
steroid sprays, not only stops people
having hay fever symptoms but could
cut their risk of an asthma attack.”
He added: “Asthma UK provides an
expert
nurse-staffed
telephone
helpline for people with asthma and is
calling for people with the condition to
make sure they take their preventer
inhaler (usually brown) which will protect them from Easter asthma triggers
and could save their life.”
Advice for allergy sufferers includes
seeking out “free from” alternatives
and making sure they know what to do
if they suffer an allergic reaction. Those
who are allergic to pollen should take
antihistamines and check the pollen
forecast.
Currently one in three of the UK
population – roughly 21 million people
– live with an allergy of some form and
the number is increasing at an alarming rate.

LYN Kendall has admitted that
“Easter is a nightmare”
because of her asthma”.
The psychologist, 61,
from Coventry, has been
hospitalised 10 times during
the Easter period over the
years.
She said: “Most people love
Easter but for me it’s a
nightmare because of my
asthma. I’ve been in hospital
because tree pollen which I
have a severe allergy to comes
out around this time and then
triggers an attack.”
Lyn has Type 2 brittle
asthma which is characterised
by acute attacks which can be
very severe and has meant she
has been hospitalised many
times. She added: “Now I’ve
identified tree pollen as my
trigger I make sure I take my
antihistamines. I’m determined
to enjoy Easter, so even if I
can’t go outside I’ll invite my
family round for a meal as I
love to cook. My advice is to
identify your
triggers and
take your
medication
so you can
enjoy
Easter.”

VICTIMS of black cab rapist John
Worboys wept yesterday after
winning a historic legal battle to
keep the sex fiend behind bars.
Two women who brought the
challenge were praised for their
extraordinary bravery in their fight
to keep one of Britain’s most notorious rapists off the streets.
They were forced to take action
after Justice Secretary David Gauke
decided there would be no official
legal challenge to a decision by the
Parole Board to release Worboys.
In a landmark ruling, three top
judges quashed the decision to free
Worboys, 60, who is believed to have
attacked more than 100 women.
Minutes before the ruling was
announced, Parole Board chairman
Nick Hardwick was sacked after
being told by Mr Gauke that
mistakes in the case had made his
position untenable. After being
forced to resign, Mr Hardwick
admitted: “We got it wrong.”
The women who brought the
action say Worboys drugged and
sexually assaulted them. They were
forced to make a public appeal to
fund the case – the first time victims
have mounted a challenge against a
Parole Board decision.
Fighting back tears, one of them,
known only as DSD, who said she
was attacked by Worboys in 2003,
said: “A lot of women will be sleeping
much, much easier tonight knowing
that he is where he belongs – which
is behind bars. I am really happy

that we can go to bed tonight with
the knowledge that he’s not going to
be out on the streets any time soon.
“While I’m thrilled with the decision, I’m also angry that I have had
to go through this ordeal to achieve
justice. It’s wrong that we were put
into this situation. It is the whole
system that has failed. I feel like I
have been let down at every step.”
Worboys, who has changed his
name to John Radford, was jailed
indefinitely in 2009 with a minimum
term of eight years after being convicted of 19 offences against 12
women. He was not in court for
yesterday’s hearing.
The former stripper and porn
actor plied victims with champagne
spiked with powerful sedatives after
telling them he was celebrating
lottery or casino wins, then attacked
them in the back of his cab.
Speaking of her torment at coming face-to-face with Worboys at an
earlier hearing, DSD said: “First of
all I was scared to face him but I
wanted to do everything I could to
ensure he remained behind bars.
“It was a shame he was not in
court today because I would have
liked to have seen his reaction. We
would have been able to say, ‘We
won. You’re staying behind bars’.”
The Parole Board approved
Worboys’ release in November,
arguing its decision was based on
appropriate evidence.
But the High Court ruled it was
“irrational” and noted the board

failed to take into account dozens of
alleged offences for which Worboys
was not prosecuted.
Worboys’ case will now be referred
back to the Parole Board and considered by a new panel.
In
January,
Scotland
Yard
launched a fresh investigation after
new victims came forward.
Yesterday, lawyers acting for the
women who brought the action said
“in excess of 10 women” who claim
they were assaulted by Worboys had
contacted them since the start of
the High Court proceedings. Details
have been handed to police.
DSD said: “Hopefully Mr Worboys,
or whatever he goes by now, will be
behind bars for a very, very long
time.” The second woman, known as
NBV, said she had felt “frozen in
shock, disgusted and traumatised
by the thought Worboys could be on
the streets so soon”.
She said: “News we have won this
case finally brought huge relief. I can
get on with my life again without
looking over my shoulder.”
Prime Minister Theresa May said
yesterday the ruling raised “serious
concerns” and agreed the “brave”
victims should never have had to
face their attacker in court during
the proceedings.
Mr Gauke congratulated the
women on the “unprecedented legal
action” before announcing plans to
make the Parole Board more trans-
parent, telling MPs that he wanted
to “reiterate my heartfelt sympathy
for all victims who have suffered as a
result of Worboys’ hideous crimes”.
Police and prosecutors have faced
fierce criticism over the case.
At the time of Worboys’ conviction, 83 women had registered complaints and another 19 then came
forward.
But the Crown Prosecution Service refused to press more charges.
Rachel Krys, co-ordinator of the
End Violence Against Women Coalition, said: “Victims have fought this
case with no support from the
system for 15 years.”

We were wrong, says Parole chief
Forced to quit, Nick Hardwick
PAROLE Board chief Nick Hardwick
yesterday praised victims of Worboys
as he was forced to quit over the
court debacle and admitted errors.
Professor Hardwick, 60, wrote in his
letter of resignation: “I want to repeat
my admiration for the courage and
tenacity of the women who brought
the judicial review.
“Their success will have
consequences that go far beyond this
individual case and will benefit
victims and administration of justice
for years to come.” Professor
Hardwick had been chairman of the
body since March 2016.
He acknowledged that yesterday’s
9p;Xm`[G`c[`kZ_
ruling was critical of “some aspects”
of the panel’s decision-making
processes, but said it “did not
overturn the panel’s decisions on
these grounds”.
He added: “The court did, however,
find that the panel’s understanding
that it could not go beyond the
offences for which Worboys was
convicted was mistaken.
“I shared the panel’s
misapprehension in this matter and
this was supported by the advice I
received. We were wrong.”
Saying he was “sorry for the
mistakes that were made”, Professor
Hardwick said he would “accept
accountability” for the Board’s work
and “will not pass the buck to those
who work under me”.
Mr Gauke said he believed
Professor Hardwick’s decision to
resign was correct “in light of the
serious failings” outlined in the
judgment.
But Phillippa Kaufmann QC, who
represented Worboys’ victims, said
the debacle did not lie “solely at the
feet of the Parole Board”.
Professor Hardwick had previously
served as Chief Inspector of Prisons
from 2010 to 2016.

THE Parole Board’s decision to
release John Worboys was
backed by a psychologist
accused of urging leniency for
sex offenders, it emerged
yesterday.
Dr Jackie Craissati, pictured,
wrote a report that apparently
played a part in the panel’s
agreement to free Worboys.
Dr Craissati, 57, has
supported the release of sex
offenders, saying
they should be
“managed in the
community”.
She was
reportedly hired
by Worboys’
lawyers to help
show he was “no
longer a risk” to
the public.
She has previously said the
public’s view of sex offenders
is too “simplistic”.
Dr Craissati, who has more
than 30 years experience and
was appointed MBE in 2013 for
services to mental health, has
also criticised negative
coverage of paedophiles.

Kim Jong-un, centre left,

meet Xi Jinping, centre

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un shares
a toast with China President Xi Jinping at a
historic top secret meeting in Beijing.
The visit, confirmed yesterday, was
Kim’s first known foreign trip since taking
power in 2011. The controversial premier
9p?\c\e\G\ib`ej
arrived in China with his wife
Ri Sol-ju by train on Sunday and left on
Tuesday, it has been reported.
The visit precedes Kim’s hugely
anticipated meeting with US President
Donald Trump, set for May.
The two had previously been involved in
a war of words in the media, with Mr Trump
calling his opposite number “little rocket
man” over North Korea’s testing of ballistic
missiles. Kim held “successful talks” with
President Xi, and reportedly assured him
that he was committed to giving up his
nuclear arsenal.
The visit followed days of speculation
about Kim travelling abroad.

Largest hike in council tax for 14 years
MILLIONS of households are
about to be hit with the steepest council tax rise in 14 years
– with local authorities still
warning of more cutbacks.
Town halls will rake in an
extra £2billion when next
month they take advantage of
new freedoms to increase council tax by up to 5.99 per cent.
People in band D properties
in England will suffer an
inflation-busting average rise
of 5.1 per cent, increasing their
tax bill by £81 to £1,671.
John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance,
yesterday said: “Council tax
has increased by 60 per cent
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
JfZ`Xc8]]X`ij:fii\jgfe[\ek
over the last two decades and
families simply can’t afford to
pay any more.
“Local authorities should
think twice before another
round of painful tax hikes and
instead step up their war on
wasteful spending.”
But Lord Porter, chairman of
the Local Government Association, said funding pressures
meant increases would not stop
cash-strapped councils from
cutting services further.
He said: “Since 2010, council
tax bills have risen by less than
inflation and other key household bills. But faced with severe
funding pressures, many councils feel they are being left with
little choice but to ask residents to pay more to help them
try to protect local services.
“The extra income this year
will help offset some of the
financial pressures.
“But the reality is that many
councils are now beyond the
point where council tax income
can be expected to plug the
growing funding gaps.
“Councils will have to continue to cut back services – or
stop some altogether.”
Even though the imminent
rises are the highest since
2004/5, Communities Secretary
Sajid Javid insisted bills were
lower in real terms under the
Conservatives.
He said: “Council tax in England is 7.6 per cent lower in real
terms than it was when we
came to government.”
But shadow communities
secretary Andrew Gwynne said:
“This shows under the Tories,
you pay more for less.
“Over the last eight years,
council budgets have been
reduced by half and services
cut, with local people forced to
pick up the slack as council tax
bills soar.”
JF:@8C:8I<:FJKJ9<?@E;I@J<
THE looming council tax rise is partly down to the
rising costs of adult social care.
Services caring for elderly and disabled people
face an annual funding gap of £2.3billion by 2020,
according to the Local Government Association.
The Government’s £240million “adult social care
support grant” to help councils that are
particularly struggling will mean in total an extra
£900million for authorities over the next two years.
But Dr Mark Holland, former president of the
Society for Acute Medicine, said: “The
Government has decimated social care funding
and demonstrated its disregard for the situation
and its impact on the NHS.” The crisis won’t be
cured with half-measures, he added.

Weinstein aide tells
MPs: I quit over sex
attack on colleague
A FORMER assistant to disgraced
movie mogul Harvey Weinstein
told MPs yesterday she left his
company
after
he
“sexually
assaulted and attempted to rape a
colleague”.
Zelda Perkins told the Commons
Women and Equalities Committee
the woman had “recently been
employed and had only met him
[Weinstein] once”.
Ms Perkins said she was
“defrauded” when she left Weinstein’s Miramax film company in
1998 after being asked to sign a
non-disclosure agreement and
warned by lawyers that she and
other women would be “utterly
crushed” if they tried to take legal
action against Weinstein.
Ms Perkins said Weinstein’s
alleged victim sought counselling,
but never spoke out because “she
was so afraid of this agreement she
felt she was not allowed to”.
She told MPs that she believed
breaking the agreement, of which
she was never given a copy, would
result in time in jail.
Weinstein, 66, who has been
accused of sexual assault and harassment by a high number of
women, denies all allegations of
non-consensual sex and is the
9pDXibI\pefc[j
subject of criminal investigations
in the UK and the US.
Ms Perkins told the committee’s
first oral evidence session on
workplace sexual harassment and
non-disclosure agreements that at
the time she believed the document would curb Weinstein’s
future behaviour.
But she told MPs: “Essentially
we were defrauded.”
9Xkkc\
Ms Perkins said she had asked
that Weinstein go to therapy and
for “a human resources system to
be brought into the company with
three complaint handlers, one of
whom had to be an attorney,
because I hoped that meant they
couldn’t lie”.
She said: “If a damages claim
was sought in the following two
years, this would either be disclosed to Disney [the parent company of Miramax] or they would
fire Harvey from the company.”
Ms Perkins was advised by
lawyers that the women
would be “utterly crushed” if
they attempted to take action
against Weinstein and advised it
“wasn’t worth considering because
of the disparity of power between
myself and Weinstein and Disney”.
Recalling a 12-hour session
with Weinstein’s lawyers,
Allen & Overy, that
lasted until 5am, she
said: “It was a siege
mentality, you lose
track of time and
place, you’re in a
battle.”

children feel abandoned,
a report suggests.
As many as 84 per cent
of those taking care of
the UK’s 49,000 babies
and young people with a
life-limiting condition
have felt isolated from
friends, family and the
wider community since
their child’s diagnosis.
Some 75 per cent said
their relationship with
their partner had been
badly affected, according
to the survey by the
children’s palliative care
charity Together for
Short Lives. And 87 per
cent found relationships
with their immediate
family were damaged.
Families’ ability to
socialise was also
affected, with 80 per
cent less likely to go out
since finding out their
child was seriously ill.
Lizzie Chambers,
development director for

illness, death and dying
and remove the stigma
that can leave so many

Michaela Boor... in a critical condition
POLICE yesterday released the identity of the young woman fighting for
her life after being crushed when a
pallet of bricks fell 70ft from a crane.
She was named as newly engaged
Michaela Boor, struck by the load
after dropping her son at school on
Tuesday her 29th birthday.
Police arrived at the scene outside
the Bow Corner development in Tower
Hamlets, east London, shortly after
9.30am.
The woman, lying among the bricks
and broken wood, was already being
tended by members of the public. A
second person was also taken to
hospital.
Alan Harris, who owns Revolution
Karting opposite the complex, said:
“I heard an almighty crash and
wondered what had happened.
“I looked up and saw a pile of bricks
had fallen to the floor. I just thought,
‘Oh my God, what’s happened?’
“At first I thought it was a child in a
pushchair that had been hit, but it
was actually a shopping buggy on its
side. There was a woman pointing up
and screaming, ‘Help, help, someone
please call an ambulance’.
“I’m not sure if she was the woman’s
friend, but she would have been
standing right next to her when it
happened, so she was very lucky.”
A friend of Ms Boor said: “Her family
are devastated. We all are. She has

ended up fighting for life in hospital
on her 29th birthday.”
Bernadette Hegarty, vicar of St
Paul’s church, Bow Common, said she
prayed with Ms Boor. “The young
woman looked very wounded,” she
said.
“The Ambulance Service worked
very hard and managed to bring her
back. She is a well-liked member of
the community. I know her to say hello
to. We are all in deep shock by what
has happened, as are the workers on
the building site.”
Ms Boor is believed to have become
engaged to her partner Andy
Murgatroyd two weeks ago.
;\Yi`j
A fundraising page was set up by
her bricklayer father Matthew’s
employers, Maytrix Construction, for
£20,000 to help the injured mother.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said:
“Police in Tower Hamlets are appealing for witnesses after a woman was
injured by falling debris. A man at the
scene was also treated for shock.”
A Health and Safety Executive
spokesman said: “Inspectors have
attended the site and are making
ongoing inquiries in conjunction with
the Metropolitan Police.”
Spy ‘poisoned by nerve
agent on his front door’
FORMER Russian spy Sergei Skripal
and his daughter Yulia came into contact with the nerve agent Novichok at
their home, police said last night.
Detectives from the Metropolitan
Police said they believed the Skripals
were poisoned at the front door of
their house in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
The news comes after a relative said
the pair now only had a “slim chance”
of surviving, following the poison
attack on March 4.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner
Dean Haydon, from Counter Terrorism Policing, said: “We believe the
Skripals first came into contact with
the nerve agent from their front door.
“We are focusing much of our efforts
in and around their address. Those
living in the neighbourhood can
expect to see officers carrying
out searches. I want to reassure them the risk remains
low and our searches are
precautionary.”
Wiltshire Police’s Deputy
Chief Constable, Paul Mills,
last night said the shopping

the
couple were found,

been “handed back” to his force and
they were now taking steps to return
it safely to the public.
Around 250 counter terror officers
are working around the clock on the
investigation into the attack, looking
through more than 5,000 hours of
CCTV, taking statements from as
many as 500 witnesses and examining
more than 1,350 pieces of evidence.
With the pair fighting for their lives,
66-year-old Mr Skripal’s niece Viktoria said the prognosis for the former
Russian double agent and his daughter Yulia, 33, “isn’t good”. She also
revealed Mr Skripal’s mother had not
been told of the incident.
She said of the pair, who remain in
critical condition: “I have maybe
one per cent of hope.”
Mr Skripal’s best friend said
the pair should be allowed to
die. Ross Cassidy, who became a
neighbour in Salisbury after the
Russian arrived in a spy swap
with Moscow, said: “What future
have they got?
“We’ve already been
told they will be
severely mentally
impaired and I
don’t think they
would
want
that.”

NE year to go. We promised the
readers of the Daily Express that
we would see the Brexit process
through and we have stuck to our
word. Our poll shows today that the
majority of the British public is firmly
behind the process and those who
continue to bleat about our leaving the
EU should pipe down now. We are
going: there will be no second
referendum, no second thoughts,
no betrayal of the British public at
this stage.
And it would be good to experience a
period of silence from the likes of Tony
Blair. The former PM didn’t exactly
listen to the will of the people when he
took us to war in Iraq: he is the last
person who should be claiming to stick
up for British interests now. The British
people have made it clear what they
want and has-been politicians should
keep quiet.
The British have also made it clear
that we are prepared to accept
a short-term economic hit if that’s what
it takes to get us out. We have shown
ourselves to be a resilient people. We
know what the consequences of leaving
will be and we accept them. We have it
all to play for. Our future and our fate is
at last back in our own hands.

T LAST common sense has
prevailed and the monster John
Worboys is to be kept in jail. But
how on earth did it come about
that the black-cab rapist was thought
fit to leave in the first place?
This is an episode that has been
mishandled from the start, from the
decision not to charge him with further
alleged attacks to the appalling
attempt to set him free. This is the man
the police believe may have committed
more than 100 attacks. What was the
Parole Board thinking?
The chairman of the Parole Board,
Professor Nick Hardwick, has fallen on
his sword but lessons really must be
learned from this. Worboys committed
terrible crimes that destroyed lives and
his victims have understandably spoken
of the system failing them.
It is a terrible state of affairs when
a monster nearly walks free and the
women he brutalised are ignored.
We must not let a case such as this
happen again.

HE hour of destiny
beckons. The moment
of freedom has almost
arrived. In exactly one
year from now Britain
will formally leave the
European Union and begin the
process of restoring our independence from foreign rule.
The return of our sovereignty,
after more than four decades of
deepening entanglement with
Brussels will be a remarkable
milestone in our island story. It
is an event that will rank alongside other historic episodes
that showed our indefatigable
national spirit, such as the
defeat of Nazi tyranny in the
1940s or the first embrace of
Parliamentary democracy in the
1830s. The triumph of Brexit in
the EU referendum was testimony to the innate courage,
patriotism and wisdom of the
British people, who refused to
be cowed by a barrage of establishment scaremongering and
smears. As liberty approaches,
the nation will reap its reward
for that heroic defiance.
Already the move towards
our withdrawal has contracted
all the alarmism peddled by the
pro-EU brigade. The economy
has not collapsed. Unemployment is at a record low, manufacturing at a record high. The
public finances are heading
towards a surplus for the first
time since the crash of 2008.
Just as the Brexiters promised
during the referendum campaign, more money is becoming
available for the NHS.
Similarly, the talks between
our Government and the EU
have made much more progress
BOTH friend and foe of Brexit
have hailed the transition
agreement as an important
and helpful stepping stone,
either a fair compromise or a
merely transitory blink of an
eye in the graceful process of
exiting the EU.
I hope they are right but
I suspect they are wrong.
Let us not beat about the
bush. The transition is
symbolic of the wrong-headed
approach of our leaders to the
leaving process.
The truth is that there was
absolutely no need for a
transition at all had our
Government possessed the
first clue about negotiating at
the very beginning of the
process. By defining success

than the Remainers predicted.
Only last week Theresa May
signed a comprehensive deal
on the transition period lasting
up to the end of 2020, under
which Britain will be allowed to
negotiate its own global deals.
In this mood of co-operation,
discussions will now focus on
our trading relationship, with
the European Council pledging
its wish for “a balanced, ambitious and wide-ranging free
trade agreement”.
As each passing day brings
Brexit closer, the dynamic of
success will accelerate. The
deadline of withdrawal by
March 2019 creates its own
momentum, building ever more
widespread acceptance of our
departure and turning British
self-governance into a reality.
Diehard Remainers understand the impetus for Brexit
imposed by the timetable. The
losers know they will not be
able to operate their roadshow
for much longer. That is why
they have become more desperate in recent weeks. Their
lurid conspiracy theories about
sinister data manipulation and
their unsubstantiated claims
about the Leave campaign’s
illegal expenditure are part of a
last-ditch effort to undermine
the referendum result. That
same sense of panic applies to
doom-mongering from pro-EU
grandees such as Tony Blair,
John Major and Chris Patten.
9
UT such squawking is
increasingly irrelevant.
The British people just
want the Government to get on
with the implementation of
Brexit, not hold a rerun of the
vote. Most citizens recognise
that we have nothing to fear
from self-rule.
After all, that was the status
of Britain for centuries before
we entered the European Economic Community – the forerunner of the EU – in 1973.
Indeed, independence is the
natural status for most coun-

tries. Out of 195 sovereign
nations in the world, 167 enjoy
autonomy, the exceptions being
the 28 members of the EU.
In the entire history of mankind the democratic nation
state has proved by far the best
constitutional vehicle for the
advancement of freedom and
prosperity, whereas the EU has
turned out to be a profoundly
flawed experiment in the
removal of basic civic rights
and national identities.
It is precisely because the EU
lacks any real democratic legitimacy that the Remainers are
unable to defend it. So instead
they resort to forecasts of disasters once we have left the EU.
Yet every one of their assertions is proving to be hollow.
They shriek about labour shortages when EU free movement
ends but only yesterday the
Government’s own Migration
Advisory Committee reported
that fears about an inability to
attract UK workers were “not
credible”.
In the same vein, Remainers
gloat how Brexit means that
the United Kingdom is hopelessly isolated on the international
stage
yet
that
charge has been demolished
by the Government’s superb
co-ordination of global action
against Russia after the Salisbury nerve agent poisoning.
Just as fallacious is the
Remainer hysteria about the
Irish border. In reality this is a
minor issue that can be resolved
by goodwill, especially because
no side actually wants a hard
border. Switzerland lies in the
heart of Europe but is not in

as a trade arrangement and,
worse, as a “special and
close relationship”, the EU
was granted the greatest
power in the negotiations,
as these matters were
themselves in the gift of the
EU. The only leverage left
to the UK under such
circumstances was money
and we have so far capitulated
£40billion in the mode of a
defeated nation.
Britain should have
declared for global free trade
under WTO rules, defined our
post-Brexit economic model
to give business and
investors confidence and
invited the EU to talk trade if it
wished to. No need for any
transition. Instead the
Government crumbled before
the narrow vested interests of
the multinationals in the CBI
and equally self-interested,
anti-democratic wreckers in
the political establishment.
Even having given away the
leverage of leaving, the
Government could have and
still can play a strong hand
by declaring a post-Brexit
economy favourable to

TRIUMPH: The

negotiations
brilliantly
the EU, and yet through technology manages its lengthy
frontier without any difficulties.
There is every cause for optimism in our post-Brexit future.
Once we are in control of our
own governance, a world of
exciting new opportunities is
open to us. There is nothing
insular or xenophobic about our
withdrawal from the EU. The
opposite is true. Freed from the
shackles of Brussels’ bureaucratic rule we will be able to
build our own trading and diplomatic relationships, deepening our North Atlantic partnership and reconnecting with the
Commonwealth.
We will also be in control of
our own borders as we construct
an immigration system suited
to our own national interests
rather than the ideology of the
EU. The ruthless insistence by
Brussels on untrammelled free
movement has imposed enormous damage on Britain. Public
services
have
been
over-
stretched, welfare bills increased
and living standards driven
down. In the past year alone,
according to the Office for
National Statistics, no fewer
than 497,000 European migrants
registered for national insurance here, 154,000 from Romania. That sort of influx is
unsustainable.
With the EU no longer in
charge we will be able to set our
own tax and benefits policies.
We could abolish VAT and
replace it with a more commercially competitive purchase tax.
We could introduce regional
variations in air passenger duty,
refashion agricultural subsidies,
adopt our own waste management policies or protect certain
vital economic industries. The
point is that we, not the
unelected commissioners of
Brussels, will be deciding our
own national course.
Far from imposing “selfharm”, as the Remainers argue,
Brexit will play to our strengths.
Britain has always been an
adaptable nation, full of ingenuity and determination, as shown
by our record as the pioneer of
the Industrial Revolution and
as the victor in two world wars.
The real disaster for Britain
would have occurred if the
electorate had voted in 2016 to
stay in the EU.
<
UROCRATS would have
been exultant. The European project of political
integration would have received
a massive boost. Ex-Cabinet
minister Chris Patten accused
Brexiters yesterday of wanting
“dogma pie” but it is his pro-EU
lot that are the true dogmatists,
demanding that Britain submit
to the federalist juggernaut.
The whole aim of the EU is
to achieve “ever closer union”
towards a federal superstate,
complete with open borders, a
single currency, a European
army, a harmonised tax system
and a new concept of EU citizenship. National democracy
counts for nothing in the EU’s
doctrinaire culture, as was
recently shown in the dubious
appointment of the sinister German Eurocrat Martin Selmayr –
known as Jean-Claude Juncker’s “Monster” – as the new
secretary-general of the commission. His promotion was
described by one French MEP
as “a mystification worthy of the
Chinese Communist Party”.
Remainers pretend that Britain is leaving an effective organisation. Nothing could be further from the truth. The EU is
grossly mismanaged, racked by
divisions and weighed down by
debts. Its contempt for national
democracy has spread misery
and hostility across the continent, highlighted by populist
revolts everywhere from Spain
to Austria. We are better off out,
as Brexit will prove.

Canada-style deal, in conjunction
with a global trade approach.
A Canada deal would cover trade
in at least 98 per cent of goods and
92 per cent of agriculture, there is
an off-the-shelf framework and the
EU has said it would be amenable
to such a deal.
It could therefore be completed
quickly, would require no
additional funding and would
facilitate a shorter transition
period, only a few weeks while
the deal was ratified by the EU
member states. As this or a
version of it remains the most
likely outcome, it would be better
that the Government adopt it now
and provide certainty than have
the negotiations rumble on to the
next cliff-edge. It would also
substantively solve the Northern
Ireland issue.
What has happened instead is
that Britain has agreed to be a
rule-taking vassal state from
March 2019 until the end of 2020,
with no say and no legal rights to
speak of. Effectively this is a delay
of almost two years in leaving the
EU but with fewer rights, during
which anything could happen.
Furthermore, in complete
contradiction to the principles of
Brexit (control of money, borders
and laws), we have agreed to
continue with the free movement
of people and we have decided to
allow the EU to plunder our fishing
grounds.
Worse still there are reports that
our beloved Chancellor wants to
trade fishing for “passporting”
bankers as if they were pieces on a
chess board.
What is all this for? To avoid the
famous cliff-edge. And yet there
will be another cliff-edge in 2020.
The Government will have had two
years to prepare for Brexit and so
will business. Many businesses
just want to get on with it and seize
the opportunities. The wreckers of
the CBI trade perfectly happily
every day around the world on
World Trade Organisation terms.
These same companies conduct
mergers (often value destroying)
and demergers, they carry out
transformation programmes on a
vast scale, all within the financial
year and yet they haven’t got the
wit to prepare for Brexit within a
two-year timescale? Nonsense!
We now find ourselves delaying
our manifest Brexit opportunities
while paying the equivalent of our
Second World War debt for the
privilege of leaving a club that has
openly stated that we must be
made to be clearly worse off out.
To add insult to injury we still
have no clear picture as to where
we are heading – it remains a
secret to confound our enemies.
Or more likely a secret so that
those in charge can define
success post hoc, that is
“success” whatever the outcome.
We are where we are. The
Government could still get a grip
on the negotiations and the
direction of travel. What is certain
however is that the only transition
we really need now is a transition
of the will.
A transition to a government
which faces down the enemies
within, gets off its knees and
stands up for Britain.

N THIS newspaper yesterday my colleague Ann Widdecombe mentioned the huge number of changes that have
taken place in her lifetime, among them heart transplants.
This reminded me of an occasion a few years ago when I
met the distinguished American heart surgeon (and now
television star) Dr Mehmet Oz. It was one of the most
fascinating chats I’ve had in years and the gist of it was this.
“The heart is coiled like a serpent, waiting to jump out at
you,” Oz began (you can see why he became a television star)
before telling me all about the pioneering work carried out in
the early half of the 20th century by doctors who realised that
they would be able to
operate on a heart
if they could find
some way of keeping
the blood circulating
around the body.
One of the early ways
of achieving this was by
using two people: the
patient and a volunteer.
The two would be
linked up and the volunteer’s blood would
be used to keep the
patient alive, except of
course that this was so
dangerous
it
often
didn’t and both patient
and volunteer would
die, leaving the doctor
with a 200 per cent
fatality rate.
Oz met some of these
pioneering
surgeons
when he was a young
man and they told him
that the worst of it
came when both died
and yet the doctor had
to go on to perform the

YOU would have thought that even Corbynistas
would know that when they are in a hole it
might be an idea to stop digging, but no. The
decent Labour MPs who took part in the
protest against anti-Semitism in Parliament
have been targeted by the Dear Leader’s
supporters and deluged with hate mail for
standing with “Tory Jews”. Can these people
get any more disgusting? And if you doubt the

Sherlock isn’t fun, clarifying the situation by
insisting he was simply referring to aspects of the

“To clear that up, in that interview I never
actually said the words ‘Sherlock isn’t fun any

at Vue West End in London’s Leicester Square. “I
said there are elements of it, the pressure, the
expectation, that are not always fun.
“I never said it is not fun, because it’s a f******
delightful job. But fun is what you want to spend
your life doing. Fun, thought-provoking things,
hopefully, challenging things.” Calm down dear!

BRITNEY SPEARS might finally be
about to wrest her £154million
fortune back from her father’s grip.
It is rumoured that Jamie
Spears, below, is planning to bring
his conservatorship to an end as
Britney appears to have her life back
on track. It follows a US court
decision to hand control of her
assets to her dad, as well as her
attorney Andrew M Wallet, after
her now infamous 2007 breakdown.
With the 36-year-old’s Piece Of Me
Tour set to kick off on July 12 in
Washington DC, her father has
apparently started the process
of inquiring about his
daughter regaining control of
her finances and personal
life. “Jamie is actively
consulting with Britney’s
medical team to determine if
the conservatorship of Britney
as the person should finally
come to an end,” an
insider tells website US weekly.
“It’s just a question of timing as
she is about to begin the tour, so
the thinking is to do it at the
conclusion.”
Jamie is reportedly paid £100,000
annually by the Toxic singer to
manage her affairs, while every
purchase she makes is documented
in court papers in a bid to safeguard
her fortune. However, even if he
relinquishes control, he’ll no doubt
still be determined to fight demands
from his daughter’s ex husband
Kevin Federline, 40, to double
his monthly £14,000 child
support payments. As Day &
Night reported last week,
Jamie insisted that Kevin,
the full legal guardian of
their sons Sean Preston,
12, and Jayden James, 11,
releases his 2017 tax return
to prove he’s not using the
money for other things.

Think I can give up the
job hunt now... football
fan’s delight at £9m win
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
A JOBLESS football fan who
won £9.3million on the lottery
celebrated with a cup of tea.
Paul Long put his luck down to
his beloved non-league Leyton
Orient’s 3-0 victory over Woking
on Saturday, which he celebrated
by buying a lucky dip ticket.
The father of three, 55, from
Wickford, Essex, initially believed
he had won just £9,000, until a
friend pointed out that he had
scooped the jackpot.
Even though he received an
email from Camelot on Sunday
morning saying he had won,
when he logged into his account
it said he had only £3.90 left.
After calling the customer helpline, he said he “must have been
in denial”, as he still came away
only believing he had won £9,000.
Mr Long said: “I rang my mate
and told him and he said, ‘Text
me over the ticket’.
“He then said, ‘Hi mate, I’m
not being funny, you’ve won
£9million’. I said, ‘Shut up’.”
After ringing the Lotto helpline
to confirm he was the sole
jackpot winner and asking “Is
this a scam?”, Mr Long told his

He said: “I opened a bottle of

Next day, Mr Long, who worked
at the Ford plant in Dagenham
for 14 years, put down a deposit
on a new Ford EcoSport sports

Having been unable to work

Achilles tendon, his job hunt is
now permanently on hold.
He said he plans to use the
money to give his 27-year-old

But he said: “I’m not going to

they should learn the value of

where I know they are going to
be all right – that’s what I take
satisfaction from.
“This is going to be one hell of

But he said he has no plans to

has supported since he was 11.

Parents
lose Alfie
legal fight
THE parents of a
22-month-old boy at the
centre of a battle over
life-support treatment
have lost a last-ditch
European court fight.
Judges at the
European Court of
Human Rights in
Strasbourg rejected a
bid by Tom Evans and
Kate James to examine
issues over the future of
their son, Alfie Evans,
who has an undiagnosed
and incurable
neurodegenerative
condition.
A spokesman for the
court said the judges
had declared the
application inadmissible
and found no
appearance of any
human rights violation.
The couple, who are in
their 20s and from
Liverpool, had already
run out of legal options
in the UK.
A High Court judge
ruled that doctors at
Alder Hey Children’s
Hospital in Liverpool
could stop treating Alfie,
against his parents’
wishes. That was upheld
by the Court of Appeal
and Supreme Court.
The European Court

HE was just another weary
weathered face among
New York City’s forlorn
bag ladies living on the
street. Lonely and destitute, by day she aimlessly
wandered among city dwellers and
tourists, every so often stopping to
rest on park benches or sneak into
department store toilets to stay
warm. By night she slept on a metal
cot beneath a standard-issue blanket at a women’s homeless shelter,
in fear of being robbed or attacked.
Just years earlier Carolyn Reybold had been one of Manhattan’s
top fashion models, featuring in
glossy magazines, and was best
friends with actress Grace Kelly,
one of six treasured friends serving
as a bridesmaid at her fairytale
marriage to Prince Rainier of
Monaco in 1956.
The world had watched Princess
Grace walk down the aisle with
Carolyn at her side, amid heads of
state and Hollywood stars including Cary Grant, David Niven, Ava
Gardner, Gloria Swanson, the Aga
Khan and Egypt’s King Farouk.
How Carolyn’s life of privilege
came crashing down is now revealed
in a memoir by her daughter Nyna
Giles. “She was a top model living
the high life when she suffered a
series of tragedies which finally led
to mental illness,” says Nyna.
“She had so much unhappiness
for so many years that she just
wanted to be left alone. It was
easier for her to live on the streets
than to feel the pressure of fulfilling
other people’s expectations.”
As well as losing a daughter,
Carolyn was also betrayed by her
best friend and star of High Society.
On her deathbed she revealed that
Grace had confessed to having a
secret affair with Carolyn’s husband. “It’s true,” Carolyn told her
daughter. “She was visiting New
York. She told me what happened.
She wanted me to forgive her.”
Grace told her old friend: “But
you don’t have to worry. We’re no
longer an item.”
Despite being distraught at her
friend’s confession Carolyn placed
friendship above marriage and
assured Nyna: “It wasn’t Grace’s
fault. Your father was a tricky
man.”

LAUNDRY serviceman’s
daughter from Steubenville,
Ohio,
Carolyn
Schaffner went to New York in 1947
to pursue her dream of modelling.
She moved into the Barbizon, an
all-women’s boarding house, where
her next-door neighbour proved to
be a wealthy aristocratic beauty
from Philadelphia called Grace
Kelly.
“They became instant friends
and did everything together –
shopping, partying and nightclubbing,” says Nyna. “They’d go to
cocktail parties, ballet and Broadway shows. They loved astrology
and playing charades. My mother
envied Grace’s sophistication while
Grace admired my mother’s dress
sense.”
It was Carolyn who suggested
that Grace wear her hair swept
back in a chignon, which became
her signature style. “My mother
encouraged Grace to go into modelling so she’d have some financial
independence from her wealthy
father, while Grace helped Carolyn
pursue a career in acting,” says
Nyna.
They often double-dated and
Grace introduced her friend, advertising executive Malcolm Reybold,
to Carolyn. In 1949 they married –
but Grace never revealed that she
was his lover.
With their careers soaring the
two best friends left the Barbizon
and moved into the plush Manhattan House tower block together:
Grace on the 9th floor, newlyweds
Carolyn and Malcolm on the 18th.
CLOSE: Grace Kelly, left, with Carolyn Reybold, main;

When Carolyn’s daughter Jill was
born in 1951 Grace became her
godmother and after delivering
daughter Robin two years later
Carolyn returned to modelling.
“They were the closest of friends,
spending weekends together on
Long
Island
and
holidaying
together in Canada,” says Nyna.
They shared clothes and when
Grace accepted her Oscar for The
Country Girl in 1955 she was wearing Carolyn’s borrowed yellow slip.
“But Grace’s growing fame created tension between them,” Nyna
reveals. “When Carolyn and Malcolm’s photo appeared alongside
Grace in a newspaper the morning
after a premiere Grace muttered,
‘They take all the bows without
making the pictures’.”
In 1955 Grace went to film To
Catch A Thief with Cary Grant in
Monaco and returned to tell Carolyn her secret: she was engaged to
marry Prince Rainier and wanted
her as a bridesmaid. Carolyn threw
Grace’s bridal shower in New York
and preparations began for the
wedding of the century.
“Her bridesmaid’s dress was
made from silk organdie in pale yellow with yards of silk taffeta,” says
Nyna. “The wedding was beautiful
but a little sad for my mother, who
knew that Grace would be entering
a different chapter of her life where
they would be apart, as my mother’s
modelling career drew to a close.
But they stayed in touch. We’d
often receive letters marked with
the royal seal of Monaco and they’d
get together whenever Grace
visited New York.”
9
UT while Grace was living
the royal life in Monaco,
Carolyn was struggling
with a series of tragedies that
ultimately sent her on a downward
spiral, the first of which was the
hysterectomy doctors ordered after
Nyna’s birth in 1959, followed by
husband Malcolm filing for divorce.
But it was the death of daughter
Robin in a car crash in 1979 that
sent Carolyn over the edge.
“My mother was devastated,”
says Nyna. “She never recovered
from that.”
By the 1980s Carolyn was homeless and penniless yet refused offers
of help from family and friends.
“She’d lost her mansion in upstate
New York in the divorce,” Nyna
explains: “Within six months her
money was gone.” She moved into
increasingly squalid homes, living
in an unheated tenement in Philadelphia before finding herself on
New York’s unforgiving streets.
“At first doctors thought my
mother was schizophrenic but a
more recent diagnosis suggests she
suffered postpartum psychosis
after I was born,” says Nyna, 58.
“She’d spend most of the day on
the streets or sitting in a park. She
went to a department store every
morning to wash and at night slept
in a shelter with 100 women in cots.
There was no privacy at all and at
7am they were shaken awake by a
guard and had to be up and out.
“I begged her to get off the streets
and move into a home but she
refused. After losing Robin, her
divorce and Grace’s death her
mental health just deteriorated.”
When Grace heard that Carolyn
was struggling she wanted to help,
though ironically she envied her old
friend’s freedom. “Grace said, ‘I
know it may sound awful and insensitive but the thought of just getting up every day and doing what
that day brings you sounds wonderful to me in certain ways.’
“Grace and my mother made
plans to meet but weeks before her
visit Grace died in a car crash in
Monaco. That was more than my
mother’s fragile health could stand.
If Grace had lived things might
have been different for my mother.
Grace would have tried hard to
help my mother turn her life
around.”
Carolyn lived on the streets for 11
years until her health deteriorated
and she spent the remainder of her
life in a nursing home.
“She wasn’t happier there and
missed life on the New York streets,”
admits Nyna. “But On her deathbed she spoke fondly of Grace. She
missed her.”
Carolyn died of colon cancer in
2007, aged 79. “We didn’t have a
funeral,” says Nyna. “There weren’t
any friends or family left to invite.”

France honours cop who gave his life in terror siege

Rot in hell! Fury as hit-run
killer of boys gets 13 years

Family members and friends of the
boys yesterday vented their anger and
grief as they packed into the Old Bailey
for his sentencing. They labelled the
defendant a “coward” for running away
and leaving the teenagers to die in the
road after the collision in Hayes at
8.40pm on January 26.
Josh’s mother Tracy Blackwell looked
directly across the highly charged
courtroom before telling Chudasama:
“You are going to rot in hell.”
One by one, members of the devastated families spoke of their grief.
George’s heartbroken mother Sarah
Baker wept uncontrollably as she told
the packed courtroom how his death
had ruined her life.
She said: “I cannot get over thinking
how he was laying there hurt. I wanted
to go to him but I was not able to get
through the barriers that night. That
awful night my son was taken from me
will haunt me for the rest of my life.”
George’s stepmother Stacey Wilkin-

son said the defendant Chudasama had
taken George’s life in the “cruellest”
and most “senseless way”.
“That man has crushed our whole
world,” she added.
Mrs Blackwell told the court: “I
thought I was the luckiest mum in the
world to have a boy like Josh.”
But his death had left her feeling
“battered and bruised” and “living in a
nightmare”.
Harry’s father Ian described his
son as his “pride and joy”. He said: “We

were all so proud of Harry’s achievements in his pursuit of his ambition to
play professional football.”
Sentencing Chudasama to 13 years
in jail and banning him from driving for
13 years and six months, Judge Wendy
Joseph said: “It is obvious that nothing
any court can do can measure the loss
of Josh, Harry and George, for the obvious reason their loss is immeasurable.”
Outside court, a crowd of protesters
called for stiffer sentences for killer
drivers. Harry’s brother Matthew said:
Protesters gathered outside the Old Bailey yesterday
“I’m protesting because my brother
was ruthlessly taken away with his two
friends by a callous driver who got in
a car knowing he was going to drive
the vehicle under the influence.
“He should not see the light of day –
end of story.”
The maximum punishment for causing death by dangerous driving is
currently 14 years in prison.
However, the court heard Parliament
is now considering proposals for life
sentences for the most serious cases.

A JOBLESS illegal migrant who has fathered at least
five children by different women in Britain while swindling £60,000 benefits has been jailed for five years.
Tyler Longman, from Zimbabwe, faked documents
to obtain a British passport and used a string of
aliases to claim benefits, a court heard.
Longman, 29, who attended court with a pregnant
fiancee, came to Britain more than 12 years ago.
It is believed he used at least 10 aliases and six dates
of birth from 2006 when he first claimed benefits.
Also known as Ulrich Trevor Johnson, Longman
fathered at least five
children by different
women. When his fiancee’s baby is born, it will
be her second with him.
When questioned by
Department for Work
and Pensions investigators, he said he had “five

children,
before blaming one of the
mothers for providing
him with a Nigerian
driving licence.

Canterbury Crown Court
in Kent, accused of illegally claiming income support
and other benefits. Judge Simon James told
Longman, of Ramsgate, Kent, there had been
“overwhelming evidence” that he had lived illegally in
Britain under assumed names.
Longman broke down sobbing as his barrister,
Jessica Ward, told the court that “he is now embarrassed and ashamed about what he has done”.
She said: “When he came to the UK he worked and
paid tax and only began claiming benefits when he
was ill. He has fathered a number of children and is a
good father, playing an active role in their lives.”

ANGRY parents have blasted a
primary school after teachers removed
loo roll from the pupils’ toilets.
Schoolchildren must now put their
hand up and ask permission to take
toilet roll out of the classroom.
One parent even claimed a boy was
in tears after being asked by a teacher
why he needed the paper and then
having a number of sheets counted
off.
The response came after misuse of
toilet paper led to blocked lavatories
and flooding at Oldswinford C of E
Primary School in Dudley, West Mids.
One mum fumed: “The reason given
by the stand-in head was that they
are upset the toilets get clogged and
school resources are being wasted.
“But surely it would be better to
educate them about not putting too
much down the toilet?

“Schools make many unnecessary
rules in my opinion. However, this last
one is truly ridiculous.
“Having toilet paper in the actual
toilet is just a basic need. It is humiliating for children to have to ask in
front of everyone. I have heard some
of the children saying they wait until
home time.”
One outraged dad, Jason, added:
“My son said his friend were in tears
when a teacher asked the poor lad if
he was going for a poo or a wee and
counted off the sheets accordingly.
“What sort of school scrutinises the
amount of loo roll a kid needs?”
Acting head teacher Jo Seker confirmed there had been “disappointing
behaviour in the bathrooms which
Parents have slammed the decision by Oldswinford C of E Primary to take toilet rolls out of the cubicles

She added: “We have introduced a
temporary system this week until

“We are not limiting the amount of
toilet roll children can use.
“We have also been speaking to
children to remind them about the
importance of good behaviour in
school, something we are very proud
of at Oldswinford.”
The school caters for 420 pupils
aged 5-11 and was rated “good” by
Ofsted in January this year – down
from “outstanding” in 2010.

We found extra joy in retirement
... as minor stars of films and TV
Gilbert, 73, and Joy, 63, rub shoulders with Hollywood’s greats
A HUSBAND and wife who decided to
try something different in retirement
have become minor movie stars.
Married since 1978, Gilbert Newton,
73, and Joy, 63, never imagined they
would rub shoulders with Hollywood
greats in their golden years.
But the couple have now worked on
nearly 100 films, TV shows, commercials and promotions since signing up
to become extras.
Gilbert, a former sales executive,
and Joy, an ex-teacher, from Lewisham,
south-east London, say they love their
new jobs so much they have no time
for hobbies.
Gilbert has appeared in films such
as Genius, Florence Foster Jenkins
Pictures: SIMON JACOBS/MAGNUS NEWS, BBC
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
and Kingsman: The Golden Circle,
starring alongside Jeff Bridges and
Halle Berry. He has also appeared in
Netflix blockbuster The Crown.
Joy has made diverse appearances
in shows such as Holby City, as well
starring in an advert shown during last
year’s American Football Super Bowl.
Gilbert said: “When we tell people
what we do everyone thinks it’s great.
“I’m the sort of chap who likes to
keep fit and occupied and this type of
work has given me a new life. Even if
you have to go to the job at 4am in the
morning I don’t mind.”
The couple, who have two daughters, one of whom is a trained
actress, travel mostly around
the capital for the work.
Joy said: “We’re not going to
become millionaires but we
do get paid for it.”
William Bembridge, from
Uni-versalEXTRAS, said: “It’s
a great way to earn extra
income in an exciting industry, whether in retirement like
Gilbert and Joy, during studies or around a part-time job.
“We work with adults of all
ages and backgrounds – don’t
assume you’re not suitable.”

of water for an hour. For wooden boards
use four tablespoons of bleach and four litres
of water.

In an unbrushed mouth there can be as many germs
as a dirty bathroom floor. When you brush your teeth
some of this oral bacteria – together with food debris
– is transferred to the bristles of your toothbrush
which become nesting grounds for
bacteria colonies. Perhaps worse is
what happens to your toothbrush
when you flush with the toilet seat
open due to the “airborne plume” which
is propelled upwards into the bathroom
by the force of the flush.
The solution: Put the seat down when
flushing and sanitise your toothbrush by
leaving the heads in mouthwash.

The average person sheds about 1.5 million
dead skin cells every hour, many of which end
up on carpets. Here they combine with food
particles, pet hair, pollen and outdoor material
transferred from shoes to form a smorgasbord
for the bacteria that thrive in our
centrally heated homes.
About 31,000 bacteria live in
each square centimetre of carpet
(nearly 700 times more than on
your toilet seat).
The solution: Hire a company
to deep clean your carpets at
least once a year.

PLASTIC ducks may look appealing but
after the bathwater has been emptied and
the children are tucked up in bed they are
still hard at work – incubating generations
of germs. Disturbingly, scientists have
discovered that the inside of some bath
toys are contaminated with up to
9.5 million bugs per square
centimetre, putting children at risk of
eye, ear and stomach infections
when they squeeze the toys or play
with them at bath-time.
This so-called “dense growth”
of “slimy films” is fuelled by
humidity, soap, sweat and –
unsurprisingly where small
children are concerned – urine
in bathwater. If you find that
worrying, take a look at these
other surprises!

In a 2013 study British
researchers swabbed 30
tablets, 30 phones and an
office toilet seat. The tablets
had up to 600 units per swab
of staphylococcus and phones
up to 140, compared with
fewer than 20 units for the loo
seat. It is estimated three in
four of us use smartphones
while in the toilet at work,
increasing the risk of
contamination. Given this,
perhaps it’s not surprising that
used office teabags can
harbour 17 times more germs
than a toilet seat.
The solution: Wash your
hands and clean your phone.

An underwear load can transfer at
least 100 million diarrhoea-causing
E.coli to washing machines, where
they thrive in the warm and moist
conditions and can contaminate
freshly washed
laundry.
The solution:
At least once a
month pour two
cups of bleach
into the detergent
compartment and
run empty on the
hottest cycle
before wiping dry.

Viola player could win
£1m because sitting in
front of brass section
damaged his hearing
Top musician
Christopher
Goldscheider
had to give
up playing
A LEADING musician who claims his
hearing was damaged by loud music
has won a landmark court case against
the Royal Opera House.
Christopher Goldscheider says he
was exposed to unacceptable noise
levels at the London venue in 2012.
The viola player, 45, suffered
“acoustic shock” after sitting in front
of an 18-strong brass section
rehearsing Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
The High Court heard how, despite
wearing ear plugs, the level of noise
was “devastating” for Mr Goldscheider, who has been unable to return to
work and has also had to give up
­playing and listening to music.
His claim for lost earnings alone is
almost £750,000. The full compen­
sation total could be close to £1million
as Mr Goldscheider is also claiming
for a diminished lifestyle.
The case, which is the first of its
kind, could have serious repercussions
for all live music venues.
Mr Goldscheider, from Biggleswade,
Bedfordshire, told the court in London
that he had learned to manage his
condition by avoiding certain sounds
that could cause him pain.
He said: “Since I left the opera
house, I have had a fairly quiet
existence. I get symptoms if I go into
By Michael Knowles
a loud environment or I am very
susceptible to vibrations, from large
fridges for example.
“I know these things make me
unwell so I avoid them. It can be
anything that is above the norm, so a
noisy restaurant would do it.”
The court heard that on the day in
question, Mr Goldscheider was
exposed to an average noise level of
91 decibels over a three-hour period –
enough to give rise to a “substantial
risk of injury”.
The levels were being recorded at
the time as there had been previous
complaints from other members of
the orchestra.
Lawyers for the Royal Opera House
Foundation said Mr Goldscheider’s
claim was in “many ways bizarre” and
said his condition was not caused by
playing in the orchestra.
They also said the venue had gone
“as far and, if anything, further than
the reasonable employer” to reduce
noise levels.
Mrs Justice Nicola Davies yesterday
ruled in favour of Mr Goldscheider on
the issues of breach of duty and
causation of injury. Damages will be
assessed at a later date.

Childhood treats we miss...
SCHOOL holidays, birthday parties
and having meals cooked for you are
among the things adults miss most
from childhood, a study has found.
Lego, Roald Dahl books and sitting
down with a toy catalogue to write
Christmas wish-lists are also among
the things people miss.
A poll of 2,000 adults revealed
67 per cent yearn for their younger
years and four in 10 consider them to
be the best time of their life.
Researchers found some
differences between the generations,
with baby boomers admitting they
long for the days of Enid Blyton
books, Meccano and collecting
stickers.
Millennials miss watching SMTV
Live on a Saturday morning, playing
on computer games consoles and
being given party bags.
Liz Penney, spokeswoman for
Hollywood Bowl which
commissioned the research, said:
“For many of us our childhood marks
a time of lots of fun and little
responsibility leaving us with plenty
of things to miss now we are grown
up and have adult lives to lead.”

MANY people will have been
deeply moved, as I was, by the
firefighter’s letter regarding the
Manchester Arena bomb attack.
Firefighters are ostensibly there
to deal with fire, as their name
suggests, but in cases of extreme
emergency their help has been
invaluable. They are fully trained in
first-aid techniques so I find it hard
to grasp how they could have been
denied the chance to pitch in
alongside paramedics.
I realise that this was an entirely
unexpected attack and came
without prior warning, but to have
badly injured people waiting for the
arrival of paramedics when there
was help available in the form of
these firefighters, is scandalous.

THOSE in charge of the aftermath
of the Manchester Arena bomb
attack should be ashamed.
We know firefighters do a risky
job, they know it’s dangerous and
health and safety plays a big part in
rescuing people – however it should
not impede them doing their job.
These firefighters deserve an
apology and they should not have
to feel guilty because they could
not help the dying and injured.

I AGREE with the firefighters who
say they should have been allowed
into the arena on that night that
many were killed and injured.
I was in the police service for 30
years and faced many dangerous
situations, alongside the fire and
ambulance services, who did (and
still do) exemplary work in some
very serious situations. I also feel
leadership was lacking that night.
I’d like to suggest that our
emergency services personnel are
issued with body armour (it would
not take up a lot of space and is
quick to put on).
Those in charge should get the
equipment needed to let these
brave men and women do what
should be expected of them.

I READ the article (“Is your career
making you ill”, March 27).
The number of people dying from
mesothelioma lung cancer from
past exposure to asbestos at work
is rising. Even teachers who worked
in schools containing asbestos have
become victims and plumbers who
worked with asbestos pipe-lagging
have died too.
There has been the fairly recent
acceptance of responsibility by an
electronics giant that chemicals
used in the manufacture of their
products abroad has led to serious
illness in some factory workers.
The toxins have caused
leukaemia and other cancers in
more than 100 of their employees,
with 87 deaths so far. This shows
how such employment risks are
often overlooked for years.

IT beggars belief that, in a world where it’s possible to
contact people on the other side of the globe in seconds,
vital communication between emergency services on the
night of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack fell
woefully short of what was required (“Firemen’s fury over
2-hour wait to help victims”, March 28).
The result of this was that dying and badly injured
people needing urgent attention were let down by fire
department chiefs not allowing their crews to step
forward in order to provide their expertise and comfort
amid the carnage.
The delay of almost two hours until that help arrived
was disgraceful and those involved in making those
decisions to hold back for that amount of time should be
brought to account.
With the threat of terrorism hanging over our country,
it is vital that the failings of the essential services at the
Manchester Arena should never happen again.

I SYMPATHISE with Gerry and

surrounding the disappearance of
their daughter.
However, I consider it wrong that
the British taxpayer has spent
more than £11.2million
investigating the case, with more to
follow (“Joy of McCanns as police
are given extra money to probe
‘last line of inquiry’”, March 27).
What about the parents in past
cases who have lost a child in
similar circumstances? They did
not get the same time or money
spent investing their case.

I WRITE to congratulate
Plymouth City Council on
its move to ensure the
city’s taxi drivers are well turned
out (“How smart... dress code for
cabbies”, March 28).
My local firm employs drivers
who look like they’ve literally just
rolled out of bed. Tracksuits and
caps are commonplace and my last
driver smelled like an ashtray.
I’ve always thought that a smart
appearance should in turn lead to a
smart mind and with our roads
busier than ever it has never been
more important to stay sharp
behind the wheel.
I wish it was a national initiative.

AS a driver who puts in
untold hours behind the
wheel to make ends
meet, I find it a bit rich that
workers at my local council are
dictating what constitutes
acceptable clothing.
If they’d spent as little as 10
minutes driving a taxi they’d know
that comfort is key to being able to
sit for hours on end in one position.
I choose to wear sportswear to
make my working day easier and
that’s my business.
They call us ambassadors so
what on earth is wrong with me
wearing a Plymouth football shirt

MAJOR international
sporting event is scheduled to take place in a
country run by an
odious regime. Vast
sums have been spent
on state-of-the-art infrastructure sparking widespread fears
that the host nation will milk the
competition for propaganda
purposes. Calls for a boycott and
the creation of an alternative
event grow in volume.
You could be forgiven for thinking this is a reference to Vladimir
Putin’s Russia hosting the World
Cup this summer but it was also
the situation that prevailed more
than 80 years ago in the run-up
to the 1936 Olympic Games in
Berlin – only on that occasion
one country had the moral courage to boycott Adolf Hitler’s
showcase for fascism and set up
its own alternative. It was a noble
endeavour but one that was
destined to fail in the most dramatic fashion.
By 1936 the Führer had been in
power for three years. AntiSemitic policies had been introduced that banned Jews from
marrying non-Jews and nor were
they permitted to be employed
as civil servants, practise law or
occupy public positions. An
“Aryans-only” policy was instituted at all athletic organisations and only one token Jewish
competitor was allowed to join
the German Olympic team.
Meanwhile, no expense was
spared when it came to preparing for the Games. Hitler commissioned a new 100,000-seater
stadium, six gymnasiums and
many smaller arenas and gave
his favourite film-maker Leni
Riefenstahl what was then a
massive budget of £5million to
record the event for posterity.
F
NCE it became clear
that Berlin would be
a propaganda pageant,
campaigns to boycott the Games
surfaced in the US, Great Britain, France, Sweden, Czechoslovakia and the Netherlands. But
once the Amateur Athletic Union
of the United States narrowly
voted to participate in December 1935, almost all the other
countries fell into line.
Only Spain, which voted in a
Left-leaning Popular Front government in February 1936, and
the Soviet Union, which refused
to participate in the Olympics on
ideological grounds until 1952,
ended up boycotting Berlin.
Not content with simply withdrawing their athletes from
Hitler’s Games, the Spanish
decided to attempt to steal the
Nazis’ thunder by organising a
competition of their own.
Called the Olympiada Popular,
or People’s Olympiad, it advertised its liberal credentials via a
poster featuring images of three
athletes: one white, one black
and one mixed race.
The Catalan capital of Barcelona was the ideal city to host
the competition as it had already
built all of the facilities required
for the 1929 International Exposition seven years earlier, includ-

TURNING 75 today, former prime minister
Sir John Major famously described Tory
colleagues undermining his premiership as
“b*******.”
Since asked about the remark Major
reflected: “What I said was unforgivable.
My only excuse is that it was true.”
DUE to make her first public appearance since
recounting details of an alleged affair with
Donald Trump on US
television, Stormy Daniels
is expected to prove
popular.
With the adult film star,
pictured, scheduled to meet
fans in Middle Tennessee
tonight, venue manager
Larry Schuster immodestly
credits savvy business
practice on his part. “We
went ahead and booked her ahead of time
seeing this may develop into something much
bigger,” he announces. Pointing out that
Daniels’ TV interview was “one of the most
watched in the past few years,” Schuster
advises locals: “Just get here as soon as you
can because we’re expecting very big crowds.”
DISCUSSING House of Commons Speaker
John Bercow’s reprimanding of Boris
Johnson this week – when he accused the
Foreign Secretary of being “sexist” after
the politician mocked Labour’s Emily
Thornberry – no-nonsense BBC
broadcaster Andrew Neil notes the usual
ban on applause in the chamber was
conveniently forgotten.
“It was interesting that as Mr Bercow
was dressing down the Foreign Secretary,
in quite robust terms, he did allow
applause in the House of Commons,” Neil
observes, cuttingly adding: “Because it was
for him he didn’t object!”
ASSESSING his role as frontman for a
hardline Brexit group, high-profile Tory MP
Jacob Rees-Mogg compares himself to a
“barking dog” on his latest podcast show.
After politely dismissing suggestions he
could instead be considered a “roaring lion,”
Rees-Mogg concludes: “This has gone from
the Moggcast to the Dogcast.”

PROPAGANDA: Hitler before jubilant crowds at the 1936 Berlin Games
ing a 56,000-seater stadium.
Spain scheduled its Olympiad
for July 22-26, which meant it
would end six days before the
Nazis’ spectacle got under way.
Given the political character
of the Popular Front many of the
athletes were sent by trade
unions, workers’ clubs and associations, socialist and communist parties and Left-wing
groups, rather than by statesponsored committees.
A UK team was organised by
the British Workers’ Sports Association. In a press release sent
out a month before the event, it
said: “Arrangements for the
British team to compete in the
Barcelona Peoples’ Olympiad
are fastly [sic] gathering pace; at
least 30 participants will travel.
Athletes, boxers, cyclists and
swimmers are expected to go
over, and rowers may possibly be
included, along with table-tennis
players.”
In the end, a total of 6,000 athletes from 22 nations registered
for Barcelona, which brought the
start date forward by three days
to the 19th to accommodate the
surprisingly large turnout. The
largest contingents came from
the US, UK, the Netherlands,
Belgium, Denmark, Norway and
Czechoslovakia. There were also
some political exiles from Germany and Italy. Even the Soviet
Union sent a team.
One of the most high-profile
athletes to commit herself to the
cause was Canadian high jumper
Eva Dawes. She had won bronze
in the Los Angeles Olympics of
1932 and silver at the British
Empire Games two years later
but refused to go to Berlin.
Dawes, who later married an
Englishman and died in St Helens in 2009 at the age of 96, travelled to Europe on the SS Alaunia but never got further than
Toulouse in south-west France.
She was about to board a train
for Barcelona when the British
consul informed her that the
Spanish Civil War had broken
out. On the very day the Olympiad was set to begin, the army
began its rebellion against the
government, athletes woke to
the sound of gunfire and the
Games were over before they
had begun.
An article from the time
laments: “It is impossible for us
to calculate our sports prowess
before the world because the
javelin has had to be exchanged
for a rifle, the discus for a hand
grenade, hurdles for parapets
and trenches, foot races for military marches; likewise, our joy
has slipped towards suffering,
and outside attraction was
derailed by horror, tourism by
invasion, and light, love and life
by gloom, hatred and death.”
?
OWEVER, not everything went smoothly for
Hitler’s jamboree either.
One of the more extravagant elements of the opening ceremony
involved a massive flock of birds.
US distance runner Louis Zamperini takes up the story: “They
released 25,000 pigeons. They
circled overhead and then they
shot a cannon and they scared
the poop out of the pigeons. We
had flat straw hats and you could
hear the pitter-patter on them.
But we felt sorry for the women
– they got it in their hair. There
was a mass of droppings – it was
so funny.”
WHILE the identity of the actress who
reportedly “bit” Beyoncé during an LA
party remains under wraps there are
tongue-in-cheek attempts to find the
guilty party. Responding to one such jokey
inquiry, an unimpressed representative for
Hollywood veteran Shirley MacLaine
confirms: “No, Shirley did not bite
anything. She’s 83 years old, for God’s sake.”
MONTY Python’s Eric Idle, pictured, who
along with Sir John Major turns 75 today, has
long claimed separate bedrooms are the
secret to marital success.
Wed to second wife Tania
for 37 years he has insisted:
“Having separate beds
means that my wife doesn’t
have to sleep next to a
snoring old man. It also
means I can be unpleasantly
grumpy in the mornings
without annoying her.”
The comic also once cheekily suggested:
“Every man should possess a guitar, an army
knife, a shelf full of books, a computer and a
mistress. If you’ve got a particularly good wife
you probably won’t need the mistress.”
Mrs Idle is doubtlessly glad to hear it.
ANYONE tempted to drop litter in the
presence of fiery property presenter Kirstie
Allsopp should think twice.
Taking aim at one driver seen discarding
a takeaway bag from his car she snaps on
Twitter: “Let’s be clear, taxes are not for
t*****s. I pay my taxes for the NHS,
education, our police, our Armed Forces…
not so some f****** can keep his sneaky
extra meal a secret from the next person
dumb enough to get in his car.”

Should you bottle
up your emotions
or turn on the
waterworks? Two
women who run a
business together
give us their very
differing opinions
W
HEN was the last
time you cried at
work? According
to Hillary Clinton’s
head of
communications
Jennifer Palmieri, it’s something
we should all do more often.
“Crying at work has long been
considered a workplace sin for
women,” she says. “But it can be
a way we express anger,
frustration, passion or sadness.
We shouldn’t mute all of that.”
In fact, in her new tell-all book
Dear Madam President, Palmieri
reveals that the Clinton press
office was dubbed the “crying
room” because the immense
pressure of the campaign often
led to people breaking down.
“No stigma was attached to
anyone who had to use the crying
room. And why should it? It’s our
world and we should be able to cry
in it if we want to.”
Dr Sandi Mann, senior
psychology lecturer at the
University of Central Lancashire,
says it’s important to strike a
balance.
“Crying in the workplace can
make people feel uncomfortable
because they are traditionally
rational places, not emotional.
However, before you bottle things
up, remember that the effort it
takes to fake or hide emotions
causes huge mental stress.”
But not everyone agrees.
Founders of the Female Success
Network Abi Horne and Sarah
Stone have vastly differing views
on whether it’s ever appropriate
to cry at work, despite running a
business together. Here they tell
us their reasons why.
Daily Express Thursday March 29 2018
Get the life you want
Pictures: SHUTTERSTOCK; GETTY
Is it ever
OK to cry
at work?
LET IT ALL OUT:
It’s much healthier than
bottling up how you feel
YES – BREAKDOWNS CAN
LEAD TO BREAKTHROUGHS
ABI HORNE, 31, lives in
Stoke-on-Trent with her husband
Aarran, 28, a salesman, and their
son Ted, six.
When it comes to crying at work,
I’m firmly on Jennifer’s side.
Expressing emotion is a sign of
strength not weakness and it’s
something we should all embrace.
For the first decade of my career
I was in a very corporate
environment and soon worked my
way up to manager level at a
global electricity company.
I can’t count the number of
times one of my employees got
emotional, either because they
were passionate about the
argument they were making in a
meeting or because of the stress
of their workload.
I always encouraged them to
let their feelings out because it’s
healthier to experience emotions
rather than hide them and end up
having a breakdown.
I think my non-judgmental
approach as a manager is the
reason so few of the people who
worked for me took time off sick.
They didn’t need to get away
from the office to deal with stress
because they felt comfortable
expressing their emotions.
Although women cried in the
office fairly often, I rarely saw men
do the same. But I think men
EMOTIONAL: Abi Horne and Sarah Stone, left,
and above, Hillary Clinton and Jennifer Palmieri
should take a leaf out of our book
sometimes and have a cry if they
feel like it. We’re human after all.
What’s more, rather than
making people appear weak in
front of colleagues, I think crying
shows strength of character.
It’s much braver to be
vulnerable and open with your
emotions than to care so much
about what people think that you
have to bury them.
When my son Ted was born,
I stopped working for the energy
company so I could focus on him.
Then in September 2017 I met
Sarah, who was working as a web
designer, and we formed a
coaching business for female
entrepreneurs.
Now we have video calls with
our clients up and down the
country and help them solve their
business dilemmas.
In many ways Sarah is the
opposite to me but our differences
mean we complement each other,
like yin and yang.
While Sarah takes a more
pragmatic approach, I’m very
passionate and emotive. It’s not
unusual for me to well up in a
client meeting because I feel so
strongly about what we’re
discussing. But rather than blink
away the tears, I let them fall.
I think it’s good for clients to see
how invested I am because it helps
them understand that what
matters to them matters to me.
And if one of our clients gets
emotional in a coaching session,
I encourage them to let it all out.
Being open about how we feel
helps us form a bond of trust and
improves our working relationship.
I think it’s fine to be
overwhelmed with emotion
sometimes. In fact, some of my
biggest breakdowns have led to
my biggest breakthroughs.
NO – GIVING IN TO TEARS
SENDS THE WRONG SIGNAL
SARAH STONE, 38, lives in
Newport, South Wales, with her
husband Andy, 46, an operations
director
Although I admire Jennifer for
speaking her mind I don’t believe
crying has any place in a work
environment. I think putting
emotions to one side is the best
way to get ahead in your career.
That’s not to say I don’t still feel
strongly about what I do.
Only yesterday I had a huge
to-do list and I felt the pressure
mounting. There were tears of
frustration welling in my eyes
because I was so stressed.
But instead of giving in and
turning on the waterworks, I took
a deep breath and carried on with
the task at hand.
Unlike Abi, I would much rather
put my emotions to one side and
try to approach things logically
instead of getting worked up
about them. If I felt I was
going to cry in a client meeting,
I’d take a few minutes away from
the conversation to collect
myself instead of letting my
emotions show.
I think when someone starts
crying in a work situation the
focus of the conversation turns
to making that person feel better.
And the more time you spend
managing someone’s emotions,
the less time you spend solving
the problem at hand.
What’s more I think crying can
be a sign of weakness, especially
if you’re in a leadership role.
The people who work for you
want to see that you can
confidently steer them in the right
direction. If you give in to the
tears, it sends the wrong signal.
In fact, just the other day I was
coaching one of our clients about
an issue she was having and she
started to get upset.
Rather than encouraging her to
let her emotions show I helped her
calm down and look at the
situation more logically.
In the end she realised that
part of the problem was her
emotional reaction rather than the
situation itself.
And once she’d calmed down we
solved the issue together.
I don’t think anyone should
pretend to be someone they’re not
but I do think it’s helpful to take a
step back from emotions
sometimes to get ahead at work.
And although I have a very
different approach to coaching
compared with Abi, in some ways
I think it’s the reason we work well
as a team.
If a situation arises that
demands someone fiery and
passionate like her, then she’ll
take the lead. And other times
when we need a more considered
approach, we deploy my calm,
collected attitude.
While bottling up your feelings
might not be the healthiest thing
to do, sometimes it’s necessary to
get the job done.
There’s nothing wrong with
waiting until later when you can
cry in private and have some time
to reflect.

AS ONE of nature’s

dark denim is a key trend
for spring/summer.

Perfect nip-and-tuck look for
S
OMETHING old,
something new, something
borrowed, something blue,
has long been believed to
bring good fortune to
blushing brides on their
wedding day.
But these days “something new”
has taken on a different meaning as
more brides-to-be are going under
the knife in order to be picture
perfect on their big day.
Latest figures suggest that one in
three books in for pre-wedding
surgery or non-invasive treatments
such as Botox, fillers and laser
facials so they look flawless when
they walk down the aisle. At our
Each week our experts
Dr Aamer Khan and
Lesley Reynolds
bring you the latest
beauty news and
anti‑ageing advice
clinic we’ve also treated mothers of
the bride, grooms, best men and
bridesmaids. In fact we once
treated the entire wedding party on
both sides.
So as the country counts down to
the next royal wedding we’ve put
together a guide to the most
popular pre-wedding treatments.
Bridal Beauty Countdown
It is really important to plan ahead
so you and your doctor can factor in
post-treatment recovery time. It
can take months to recover from
surgical procedures so if you are
thinking about having a tummy
tuck, breast augmentation or nose
job, book it at least nine to 12
months ahead of the big day.
Most non-surgical treatments
need commitment and time as best
results are cumulative and seen
three to six months afterwards.
Even Botox and fillers can bruise
the skin so it’s best to have these
four to six weeks before to give the
treatment time to settle. You can
have a top-up two weeks before the
ceremony but no later.
A week before the wedding we
recommend microdermabrasion
which involves spraying tiny
crystals on the face to blast away
dead skin, leaving the complexion
clear, healthy and glowing. This is
priced from £60.

Arm thread lift
With the popularity of sleeveless
wedding dresses it’s no surprise
toned arms are often top of a
bride’s wishlist.
While a lot can be achieved
through exercise it has its
limitations. Weight-based workouts
will tone the muscles in the arm but
unfortunately they can’t tighten lax
or sagging skin. A surgical arm lift
used to be the only option to banish
bingo wings but now body threads
can be used to tighten the skin,
contouring curves and making the
arms look smoother.
The threads are inserted with a
fine needle to gently lift sagging
skin. The body naturally absorbs

Body contouring
Popular with brides who want
to slim their stomach, hips or
thighs, TiteFX is a noninvasive
fat-busting procedure that is a
faster alternative to liposuction.

HITCH IN TIME: Brides are undergoing surgery to look their best
pigmentation marks and thread
veins. A small device releases
radiofrequency energy into the

which over time dramatically
improves skin quality.
There may be some swelling
and bruising for up to a week
after the initial treatment.
l Costs from £1,000
Knife-free facelift
If you want tighter, firmer and
lifted skin but don’t want

This new noninvasive

stimulate the production of
collagen and elastin.

Curve creator
Alternatively, if you want to add
curves, the Brazilian Butt Lift
will give your behind a natural
boost. Spare fat is taken from

help pad out the cheeks. Using
your own fat ensures a more
natural-looking result and it
won’t be rejected by the body.
Best results are seen three to
six months after treatment.

Sense but no sensibility
D
o we live in an
increasingly violent
world? Could it be that
the violence isn’t
increasing, only the ways
and means we find out
about it? Are You Autistic?
(C4) presented us with a new
version of this conundrum.
Diagnoses of autism, we were told,
are at an all-time high.
So are there more people with
autism than ever before? Have we
become better at spotting it?
Maybe we’re over-spotting it,
diagnosing autism where it needn’t
be? This somewhat sketchy
documentary had a big reveal up its
sleeve, the results of a huge study,
involving 750,000 British adults.
Completing a questionnaire
devised by Cambridge University’s
autism expert, Professor Simon
Matt Baylis
on last
night’s TV
Baron-Cohen, some 87,000 people
scored over the threshold for
autism or just over one in ten.
It was right that they revealed
the statistic at the end of the show
because a greater part of it had
been devoted to showing us how
“ordinary” the condition can be.
Bored by chit-chat? Prefer taking
apart an old clock to attending a
cocktail party? Get annoyed when
your routines change? We recognise
these traits because they’re in
ourselves and people around us.
Much of what we might call
typical male behaviour, such as
loving facts and lists and not being
able to read peoples’ emotions,
comes under the umbrella of
autistic traits. It’s as if, for reasons
not fully understood (or explored
here), some have a concentrated
version of the traits everyone has.
It was clear, though, before the
survey results were unveiled, that
many of them still get on with their
lives. The presenters, trainee lawyer
Georgia Harper and artist Sam
Aherne were good examples.
Some 47,000 of the survey’s 87,000
“hidden” autists were women in
fact, and while this was intriguing,
the documentary didn’t have much
else to add. More frustratingly, it
spent a lot of time with Professor
Picks of the day
Education: Indian Summer School,
9pm, C4
Five British boys, Alfie, Harry, Jake
Ethan, Jack (all left), failed their core
GCSEs and are facing resits.
However, they will take the exams
again at Doon School in India,
an establishment which boasts a
100 per cent pass rate. This
documentary follows the workingclass lads during their time at the
unique boarding school. British head
teacher Matthew Raggett believes he
can transform the boys’ prospects in
just six months – but they will have to
knuckle down and apply themselves
properly. Jack and Alfie adapt best to
the new way of life, Harry slips into old
habits by prioritising popularity over
his studies, while Jake and Ethan
struggle to adjust to the new regime.
Baron-Cohen who has himself,
previously suggested the condition
might be an exaggerated kind of
maleness.
So why not ask him what he
thinks now? It was also suggested
(again, minus detail) that perhaps
female autism is better equipped at
disguising itself. An experiment, of
sorts, got some blokes speed-dating
with a roomful of young women.
The conversation flowed, the eye
contact zinged and at the end, not
one man realised he’d been
speaking to an autistic woman.
So if autistic women can learn
social behaviour or use it better
than autistic men, then how and
why? More importantly, what use
are surveys without some insight?
What use is regeneration, either,
without homes? Social
Housing, Social Cleansing
(Channel 5) included a clip of Tony
Blair promising no more ‘no-hope
areas’. In saying this, he bolstered a
strong myth about social housing.
To those who moved into the first
high-rises, council housing was an
achievement, something to be
proud of. Somewhere along the line
it became something people
escaped from. Blair, and politicians
before and after, overlooked the
hope in ‘no-hope’ estates, ignored a
sense of community and ignored
the real causes of the problems.
Bulldozing them, a second round
of ‘slum clearance’, seems the only
solution today’s leaders have in
mind, with one difference. Post-war
clearances moved low-income
citizens to bright, clean, modern
homes. Last night’s film showed
them being replaced by ‘luxury’
developments they couldn’t afford.
DID YOU KNOW? Best known for his role as Black Joke Chief
in the Martin Scorsese film Gangs of New York, comedian
Ford Kiernan began his career at Glasgow’s Comedy Club,
which led to a slot in the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in 1994.

Simon Schama (left)
examines how they were

to Ottoman Istanbul,

Sky Cinema Comedy, 8pm
When driven student Stephanie invites her immature
boyfriend over to “Netflix and chill”, things soon take a
turn for the worse as her dad, who is celebrating his
55th birthday with friends and family, soon comes into
contact with her new man when he flashes the camera
during a live webcam chat between father and daughter.
Although a tech-millionaire, this act of stupidity does
not exactly endear him to Stephanie’s protective dad
as he makes it his mission to destroy his little girl’s
relationship and protect her from the foul-mouthed
playboy’s wild ways and lacklustre approach to life.
Comedy, starring Bryan Cranston and James Franco.

LIVE LIFE TO

A four-page guide to the
very best in residential
care, in association
with Anchor
Edited by George Nichols
L
ONELINESS among older people is
a growing problem. Living longer
brings many benefits but it can also
see many of us outliving our
partners and friends. Age UK says
there are more than 2 million
people over the age of 75 who live alone
and 1.2 million who are chronically lonely.
It’s not just bereavement that sets us
apart – health problems can change the
way we live, too.
And then one thing can lead to another,
impacting on mental wellbeing, often
causing depression, spilling over into
physical ill health too.
There are support mechanisms such as
The Silver Line – the 24-hour phone
helpline offering information, friendship
and advice – but the problem is still
growing.
Anchor (England’s largest not-for-profit
provider of housing and care for older
people) stems that tide with a smile at its
121 care homes across England, places for
those who simply want to live alongside
prospective friends, but also for those who
need a helping hand.
It has 50 years of experience and offers a
range of residential and dementia care,
making sure that we get the best out of
life as we get older.
Anchor is dedicated to privacy and
choice, giving you time to be on your own
when you want to be, yet still helping to
make loneliness a thing of the past.
All Anchor homes are committed to
opening up links with the community and
Anchor is
dedicated
to privacy
and choice
helping to make new friends. Many invite
non-residents in for Sunday lunch or to
simply enjoy a cup of tea and some
company in a warm, safe and welcoming
environment.
Anchor homes are modern and
comfortable, relaxing while being fitted
with the very latest facilities. They sit in
charming settings, often in extensive
grounds – the perfect place to enjoy the
summer months.
And there are daily activities (arts,
crafts, games, using an iPad) as well as
regular events – coffee mornings, lunch
clubs and open days as well as day trips to
places of interest. The friendly, expertly
trained staff make day-to-day life fun
again. Care is tailored to the needs – and
the desires – of the resident.
A
NCHOR, whose homes are
regulated by the Care Quality
Commission, is a leader in
dementia care and all its homes have a
dedicated dementia specialist with carers
A Welcome Home
trained to provide care that enhances
quality of life.
Many Anchor homes also offer respite
care for older people requiring temporary
care and support.
This not only provides specialist care for
the person concerned but can also offer
their carer a well-earned rest.
Whether you’re simply looking for
company, or whether you need a helping
hand, when it comes to making the
most of your golden years, Anchor care
homes really do give you just what you
want.

Mayflower Court, Southampton
72 residents
CQC rating: Good
(March 2017)
A contemporary gem
that unites neat brick,
huge windows, timber
and stainless steel
with mature trees,
flower beds and lawn.
Tucked away in the
city’s leafy streets, the
spacious rooms are
kitted out with bright
fixtures and furniture,
with lovely views from
the big windows.
Communal areas are
equally attractive.
There is a selection of
cosy lounges in which
to chat with friends or
relatives, watch TV or
just watch the world
go by. There are dining
rooms on each floor, so
there are lots of places
to meet and relax with
other residents.
The whole home is a
place where you can
stroll and mingle,
whether it’s in the café,
arts and crafts room or
library, where you can
use the free Wi-Fi.
There’s even a hair
and beauty salon.
On those warm days
by the south coast it’s
a delight to stroll in
the peaceful gardens,
or enjoy a break at one
of the comfortable
outdoor seating areas.
Some ground-floor
rooms have private
patios, others have
secure balconies.
There’s a little light
gardening on offer, too,
with raised planting
areas outside along
with raised bedding
boxes indoors.
Mayflower Court has
a floor devoted to
dementia care, with
residents helped to
make the most of
home and gardens.
The speciallyadapted environment
is safe and calming,
helping residents
maximise their
independence. Carers
are trained in creating
detailed care plans
with residents’ family,
friends and life story,
which are used daily to
maintain dignity as the
dementia progresses.

CQC rating: Good (January

Set on the edge of an
attractive market town,
Buckingham Lodge is only
a short walk from the
meandering River Thame.
Understated and
tastefully modern, there are
dining areas on each floor
– one a dining room, the
other a more casual café
but both charming in pale
wood and white walls –
lounges (with TVs and DVD
players) and quiet seating
areas, ideal for getting away
from it all with a good
book, or with an iPad to
enjoy the free Wi-Fi.
Rooms, all decorated in
colourful yet calming
shades, are spacious with
en-suite facilities and each
has its own TV and DVD
player. There are views
across the secure,
landscaped gardens, some
to the countryside beyond.
Hobbies are well catered
for, in partnership with the
National Association for
Providers of Activities for
Older People, to enhance
residents’ lifestyles, health
and sense of wellbeing.
Activities and interests
are discussed when a
resident arrives and a
stimulating events and
activities calendar is
organised to match
interests and needs. Weekly
sessions include baking,
bingo and gardening (the
grounds feature neat,
raised beds) as well as the
likes of armchair yoga and
newspaper discussions.
There is also a hair and
beauty salon.
In the same way as at
other Anchor homes,
visitors are always welcome
– at mealtimes too. As well
as dementia care,
Buckingham Lodge also
offers respite care.
The Lodge is a minute’s
walk from shops and a
community centre, while a
swimming pool and gym
are less than a mile away,
and Aylesbury Waterside
Theatre with its mix of
shows, music and theatre is
a little further.

Orchard Gardens, Bishopstoke
48 residents
CQC rating: Good
(March 2017)
A delightful home, this
sits at the heart of
Bishopstoke Park
retirement village in
Eastleigh, Hampshire.
The lovely site, amid
rolling lawns, allows
residents to live a rich
and meaningful life in
the company of
supportive and
like-minded people.
Designed with
intimacy and
companionship in
mind, the home is
arranged in four
households of 12
bedrooms. Residents
can form new
friendships in each
household lounge and
dining area or relax in
their own big, comfy
bedroom. Each is
tastefully decorated
and, like at all the
homes, residents are
encouraged to
personalise it with
ornaments, photos
and other details.
Bring a laptop
computer – there’s free
Wi-Fi.
Each dining area has
menus offering freshly
cooked, wholesome
and nutritionallybalanced dishes.
Social events in both
home and community
are arranged in
collaboration with
residents, meaning life
can be a hive of
activity – or as gentle
as can be. Events
include everything
from morning
armchair exercises to
an afternoon film club,
fish and chip lunches
to minibus jaunts.
The home, in a
country-house setting
close to the River
Itchen, is on the edge
of the South Downs
National Park, with its
gentle walks and
picturesque villages.
There’s plenty to
explore locally – not
least the park’s own
Redwood Bistro, the
first restaurant within
a UK retirement
village to be awarded
an AA Rosette.

Clayburn Court, Peterborough
64 residents
CQC rating: Good (September
2017)
This modern home has
pretty, understated interiors
offering relaxed living.
Companionship is an
important part of life here
and lounges on each floor
are places where people
can meet with loved ones,
mingle with neighbours,
read, watch films or simply
chat.
There’s a café, a hair and
beauty salon and a family
room with free Wi-Fi
throughout, making it
possible to keep in touch
with friends and the news.
There are also dining
rooms on each floor (the
menus are planned in
conjunction with residents),
so you don’t have far to go
each mealtime.
Companionship extends
to pets and your little loved
ones are welcome to live
with you.
Two calm, soothingly
decorated lounges open on
to the landscaped gardens.
This peaceful setting is
perfect for a stroll (walking
the dog perhaps), while the
outdoor seating areas are
spots in which to soak up
the atmosphere in the sun.
Or enjoy the view from your
room’s large windows.
There are quiet areas
throughout the home and
sizeable en-suite bedrooms
also ensure peace and
privacy when you want it.
Like the other homes, each
bedroom has its own TV,
DVD player, fridge,
comfortable seating and
lockable drawers, and is, of
course, en-suite.
Specially adapted lights
and call systems enable
staff to help immediately if
there’s a problem.
Clayburn Court is close to
Peterborough’s Serpentine
Green shopping centre and
the sport and leisure centre
and library.
Residents are encouraged
to become part of the
community with regular
events in the city.

Why Anchor?
Specialist dementia care
At Anchor we are specialists in dementia care. Anchor Inspires (an internal accreditation) is our
innovative model of truly person-centred care for people living with dementia. This model makes
it possible for people living with dementia to continue to do the things they love in a caring and
supportive environment. Understanding residents’ backgrounds, interests and personal tastes is an
essential first step in the approach we take to enhancing their lives – so that from their very first day
living with us, they see it as their home.
Activities
Our approach to residential care focuses on ensuring all of our care homes offer a stimulating
range of activities which are designed to reflect the wishes and interests of our customers and help
them maintain close bonds with their local community. Many of our care homes have a dedicated
Activities Co-ordinator who arranges a variety of opportunities for our customers to enjoy daily
activities in the home as well as in the local area. These can range from day trips to leisure facilities
and places of interest, to arts, crafts, games, using the iPad and social events in the home.
A Welcome Home
If you want to talk to us today about Anchor care homes then call
0808 102 5460 or visit Anchor.org.uk/our-care
We have been helping older people get the best out of life
since 1968 and are proud that Anchor has become England’s
largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for the over
55’s. Here are just a few reasons more than 34,000 older
people in England live with us.
Specialised care provision
We are committed to providing all of our customers, whatever their needs, with exactly the right
level of care. We understand that people value keeping their privacy, choice and independence
and so encourage you to choose how your care is planned and delivered. All of our care homes
provide 24 hour care in a warm, safe and friendly environment delivered by well-trained and caring
staff. Our internal training programme ensures our staff deliver the highest quality of personcentred care, which is embedded into every element of a resident’s life.
Freshly cooked meals
Mealtimes are a social and enjoyable time of the day and central to our residential care. All our
menus offer freshly cooked, wholesome, appetising and nutritionally balanced meals with a different
seasonal choice every day. Our experienced chefs attend our in-house, nationally recognised training
programme and we use the Standard Nutritional Assessment check in all of our homes. This enables
us to understand the nutritional requirements of each resident and to meet their needs accordingly.
Anchor is proud to have won national recognition for the quality of its food and catering service.

Embrace change don’t fear it.
Although you don’t like to leave a supportive

place will be uncomfortable. Picture yourself
enjoying friendships in new surroundings.
Talk to people you would normally avoid.

Family responsibilities are
undermining you. You long to get away, but
feel you’re tied to a needy relative. Instead of
accepting this situation as inevitable, ask for
help. A caring friend or family member could
take over while you take a break.
0905 789 3707**
Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22
Worrying is a waste of precious
energy. Imagining all the ways a situation
can go wrong will just make you even more
fearful about the future. It’s much better to
envision the best possible outcome and
assume everything is going your way.

Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21
Your budget is tight, making it
difficult to do all the things you enjoy. Not

and turning them into opportunities.

Easter. It looks impressive and tastes good too. Serves 12.
INGREDIENTS
350g plain strong flour
12g easy blend yeast
25g margarine or butter
6 tablespoons lukewarm semi
skimmed milk
METHOD
1) Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan assisted, gas mark 7.
2) To make the dough, mix the flour and yeast in a bowl.
Melt the butter or margarine and whisk with the milk,
salt, eggs and sugar, then add to the flour. Mix with a
wooden spoon until the dough leaves the sides of the
bowl clean. Knead thoroughly on a lightly floured surface
until firm, elastic and no longer sticky. Place in a
polythene bag and leave in a warm place to rise until
doubled in size.
1/2 teaspoon salt
3) Turn the risen dough onto a lightly floured surface,
flatten with your knuckles to knock out the air bubbles

ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Make final preparations in the veg patch so the soil is ready for
sowing. Hoe off any weeds, sprinkle general purpose fertiliser over the area and rake it well
in. You’ll need a garden line to make straight rows and some plant labels for marking crops.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
You’ve been forced to make an
unpopular decision. As a result, you feel
isolated from the rest of the group. Give
everyone time to adjust to the new situation.
The fair members of the group will eventually
admit you did the right thing.

Leo July 24 – Aug 23
Overwork is causing burnout. It’s
imperative to slow down, even if it means
taking a few days off work. Don’t let the
prospect of a promotion cause you to push
your body past healthy limits. You need time
to rest, relax and recharge your batteries.
0905 789 3705**
Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20
A lack of confidence is undermining
your professional progress. At times, it’s hard
to connect with colleagues. You long to be as
popular as other members of the company.
Instead of yearning to be something you are
not, embrace your unique abilities.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
You’re reluctant to state the truth,
worrying people will resent your blunt
assessments. Although the things you want
to say are not pleasant, they should be
stated. The group is on an unrewarding path.
There is still time to change direction.
0905 789 3711**
Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
Don’t neglect your responsibility
towards someone younger. It’s your job to
set a good example. Adjust your focus and
fill your life with wholesome activities. Not
only will your relationship improve, but you’ll
feel better about yourself.
When you want to advance, use the
usually available channels to success.
Getting someone else to pull strings on your
behalf will call your contributions into
question. Nobody will be able to assess if
you’re truly gifted or simply well connected.

biggest pharma company.
Takeda Pharmaceutical is considering
an approach to Shire as it looks to
strengthen its core therapeutic areas of
oncology and neuroscience.
Shire, known for its Adderall attention
deficit hyperactivity treatment but with
a focus on rare diseases, was a target for
US drugs group AbbVie four years ago.
But AbbVie walked away after the
Obama administration introduced rules
clamping down on overseas acquisitions
that would lower a company’s tax rate.
Shire, led by chief executive Flemming
Ornskov, acquired rival Baxalta for
$32billion and another US firm, rare
disease specialist Dyax for $5.9billion.
Takeda said an offer for Shire is at “a
preliminary and exploratory
state”. No approach had been
made to the Shire board and
there could be no certainty
that any approach would
lead to a deal.
It said: “Takeda believes
that a potential transaction
with Shire presents an
opportunity to build on its
current strong momentum
and create a truly global,
value-based Japanese

biopharmaceutical leader.” Combining
with Shire would speed up its vision to
be a leader in specialised medicines,
enhance its research and development
and its late-stage pipeline, it added.
Shire said it had not had an approach
from Takeda, which must announce
whether to make a firm bid by April 25.
Nicholas Hyett, equity analyst at
investment firm Hargreaves Lansdown,
said: “Following Shire’s acquisition of
Baxalta in 2016, the group has strong
positions in several attractive markets.
“Sales of recently developed drugs are
rising rapidly and major patent expiries
aren’t scheduled until the 2020s.
“Meanwhile the labs are looking
productive, which should secure revenue
streams for the future.
“However, the group’s valuation
doesn’t reflect those strengths, and
there a couple of reasons for that.
“First is a balance sheet that’s
still weighed down with $19billion
of debt following the Baxalta deal
that will soak up cash for years to
come. Second is the looming
threat of competition in
the all-important
haematology business which now
accounts for
$3.8billion of
annual sales.”

Nationwide banks on business
NATIONWIDE has joined the
race for Royal Bank of Scotland
funds to boost competition in the
small business lending market.
The UK’s biggest building society wants to break the
stranglehold of the “big five”
banks – Lloyds Banking Group,
Barclays, RBS, HSBC and
Santander – which dominate 85
per cent of business accounts.
Others targeting the £425million
fund which RBS is required to
hand out to satisfy state aid rules
following its bailout include TSB
and Virgin Money.
Nationwide CEO Joe Garner
said: “We know there is demand
for a Nationwide business current account because at least
50,000 members ask us each year
if we can help.”
Bargain Booze jobs at risk Beast ravages high street
THE owner of Bargain Booze and
Wine Rack is facing administration
after failing to raise £125million to
shore up its finances.
Conviviality Retail, which employs
over 2,500 people, had been hit by
two profit warnings and a failure to
account for a £30million tax bill,
which led to chief executive Diana
Hunter stepping down. It said:
“There was ultimately insufficient
demand to raise the full £125million.
“The company is in discussions
with its lending banks and advisers
regarding other possible options and
is in receipt of a number of enquiries
regarding a potential sale of all or
parts of the businesses.”
RETAILERS suffered their worst
March for five years as freezing
temperatures kept shoppers away
from the high street.
The “Beast from the East” and
weak consumer confidence led to
the first year-on-year sales decline
since last October, according to the
CBI. Department stores, furniture,

Motor traders also felt the chill while
online sales growth slowed sharply.
Just under a third of retailers said
sales volumes were up, compared
with 40 per cent doing less business.
Retailers expect sales volumes
and orders placed with suppliers to
grow next month.

RUGBY LEAGUE: CASTLEFORD WINGER HAS COME HOME
BACK IN THE
CHASE: Andy
Murray is making
good progress on
his comeback
from hip surgery,
last night
posting an image
from training in
Nice with British
prospect Aidan
McHugh.
“Chasing down
another Aidan
McHugh error
today during
practice,” he
wrote on
Instagram.
GOLF
From Bernie McGuire
in Houston
JUSTIN ROSE will
return to Augusta next
week with no regrets.
The 2013 US Open
winner has won
enormous praise over
the past 51 weeks for
the way he handled his
sudden-death loss to
Sergio Garcia in last
year’s Masters.
That was no more
evident than at the
Green Jacket
presentation ceremony
when Rose proved so
dignified in defeat.
Now, after three wins
at the tail end of last
year and with four
top 10s in six PGA Tour
events this year, he is
brimming with
confidence. “My outlook
1
Good loser
Rose wants
a win badly
is I’d like just to win a
Masters in my career,
whether it’s next year
or whether it happens
five years down the
road,” he said ahead of
the Houston Open
which starts today.
“I’d like to win more
Majors than one. Just
to win Augusta once
would be amazing.
Augusta doesn’t
recognise what
happened last year, so
it’s a fresh body of work.”
Rose is among 14
Europeans contesting
this week’s event in
Houston, including
fellow Englishmen
Ian Poulter and Lee
Westwood, who both
need to win to secure
an invitation to the
Masters.
Clare dares
to live again
CASTLEFORD
winger
James Clare faced an
uncertain future when he
was relegated with Leigh
in the Million Pound Game
last October.
The 26-year-old and many of
his team-mates were contracted
but defeat by Catalan Dragons
meant all bets were off. Contracts
became null and void and grown
men cried.
It was another disaster for
Clare after being at Bradford when
they were liquidated in January
2017.
He joined Leigh on their Super
League return, only to sustain
a
serious
knee
injury
pre-season which wrecked his
campaign before he returned in
the dreaded Qualifiers.
Clare said: “The atmosphere
before the Million Pound
Game was surreal –
everybody was just too
nervous to talk. But
afterwards was
far worse. A
couple
of
lads were
Picture: DAVE HOWARTH
EXCLUSIVE
By Ross Heppenstall
crying, which you don’t see very
often, and a lot of others just sat
there with heads in hands.
“It was heart-wrenching and I
felt sorry for the Aussie players
who had given up everything to
move to the other side of the
world and lost their contracts.
“Personally it was another
blow after everything I went
through at Bradford, when I
seriously considered quitting.
“When the Bulls were in
administration we didn’t have
insurance to even train. The
amount of emotional stress
you go through takes its toll
physically.”
Then
Clare
bumped
into
Castleford’s
chief
executive
Steve Gill
and a
return to the club where it all
began was mooted. He duly
signed a one-year deal for this
season with Daryl Powell’s side.
Castleford head to Wakefield
tonight on the back of a 25-24 win
over Leeds last Friday, their
fourth straight win.
“Castleford is my hometown
club and I remember coming here
as a kid when my dad was club
mascot Tigerman,” said Clare.
“I watched from the outside as
a supporter last season as they
finished 10 points clear at the top
of Super League and reached
their first Grand Final.
“To now be among those
players who feel Castleford can
do something special this
year is simply fantastic.
I’m pinching myself.”
Clare is hopeful of
another deal but no
longer
counts
his
chickens, saying: “I’m
studying to be a teaching
assistant
because
rugby league can
be an uncertain
career, as I’ve
found out.”

SQUIRES
REPORTS
BRAD BARRITT has
always been the type of
player to put his body
on the line for the
cause but the Saracens
captain has gone above
and beyond this time.
Leading his side out against
Leinster at the Aviva Stadium
on Easter Sunday, just five
days after having a metal
plate inserted in his broken
left cheekbone, is an act
of
borderline
lunacy
which underlines Saracens’
collective desperation to land
a Champions Cup hat-trick
this season.
When the former England
centre left the field against
Harlequins on Saturday with a
sore neck, he was unaware of
the damage that had been
caused earlier in the game by a
stray elbow.
“I only realised it was
fractured later that evening
when I blew my nose and it
inflated,” he said. “Because it
is quite close to the nasal
cavity, air that would normally
pass through your mouth fills
into a pocket in your cheek, so
that’s how you determine it’s
displaced.
“The marvels of modern
science meant that they could
operate on it under local
anaesthetic. It was much like a
routine tooth operation.
“They numbed the side of
the mouth, created an incision,
used what looks like a shoehorn
to pull your cheek back,
scraped away to the bone and
put in a vertical plate and then
drilled it in.
“I was conscious so it was a
pretty surreal experience, but
I have had a lot more painful
things in my day.”
Playing in a Champions
Cup quarter-final five days
after the procedure sounds
like a blatant disregard for
his own welfare, but Barritt
insists it is no more
dangerous for him than
any other game.
“I have had a titanium
plate put in there which
I’m told is now stronger
than the other side,” he
said. “It is more coping
with
the
pain,
but
thankfully the surgeon did
a great job and it feels
good.
“I was very confident going
into the full session we have
had today, so I’m feeling
great.”
If Saracens needed an
inspiring lead as they attempt
to keep the flag of St George
flying in Europe, they have it.
The presence of Barritt
alongside Owen Farrell in
midfield provides a titanium
Brave Brad
is showing
his metal
plate to the Saracens defence
and with one half of the axis
cleared for action, the holders
are now waiting on the green
light for Farrell.
He missed the Harlequins
game with a thigh strain
suffered on England duty but
returned to training yesterday
and was in good spirits
afterwards. Alex Lozowski is
on standby but Farrell
will be given until
tomorrow to
prove
his
fitness.
“Owen is a
great player
and is in good
form at the
moment,”
said Saracens
director
of
rugby
Mark
McCall.
“He had a good Six Nations
and was probably one of
England’s best players in the
competition. We’re hopeful
that he’ll play, but if he can’t
Alex is a great stand-in.
“I wouldn’t want to play
Owen if he’s going to break
down and be out for a
period of time, but
you want your best
players to play in
these big games.
“Owen
hasn’t
trained with us for
10 weeks which is not
ideal. We will make a
decision on Friday. His chances
are probably 50-50.”
If Farrell plays, the likelihood
is the goalkicking duties will
be passed onto Alex Goode.

Mallinder out of Franklin’s
Gardens at the end of the

“I don’t think he’s near

From Chris Stocks
in Christchurch
JOE ROOT and his
players need to find an
immediate cure for the
travel sickness that has
left them on the brink
of becoming England’s
worst Test side away
from home.
The current overseas winless
run of 12 matches is the longest
for England since the Second
World War.
And failure to register a
series-levelling victory in the
second and final Test against
New Zealand that starts in
Christchurch tonight will see
this group of players claim an
unwanted slice of history.
The defeat in Auckland on
Monday was the fifth time in
eight overseas Tests England
have lost by an innings. That
match was gone in the first
94 minutes after the tourists
were embarrassingly routed
for 58 inside the first session.
It was a new low during
a wretched winter in which
England
were
hammered
4-0 by Australia in the Ashes.
“You go into anyone’s home
conditions these days and it is
becoming more and more
difficult to win,” said Root.
“What

“As a batting group, that

plenty of experience in those

we’ve come up against time

England left for Australia

now summon up
one last effort to

Christchurch.
“There

such a poor week,” said Root.
“We did show a lot of fight

Moeen Ali looks certain to
pay for a poor winter by
being dropped for Lancashire’s
Liam Livingstone.
“It has been a struggle for
Mo,” said Root. “He’s definitely
got the game to turn things
around but it’s making sure he
keeps believing in all the good
stuff he’s done in the past.”
Yet Root’s reply when asked
if
Moeen
will
play
in
Christchurch was hardly a
ringing
endorsement,
the
skipper simply saying: “We’ll
have to wait and see.”
Fast bowler Mark Wood is
also likely to play his first Test
of
the
winter,
probably
replacing Craig Overton.
But it appears England will
play safe with Ben Stokes’ back
injury, using the all-rounder as
a specialist batsman once
again. “It’s always a tricky one,”
said Root. “With such a big
summer coming up it’s really
important we err on the side of
caution with him and make
sure we don’t lose him for a
long period of time.
“I don’t think we’ll see him
running in for 30 overs a day
but hopefully we’ll be able to
get some overs out of him.”
New Zealand, meanwhile, are
likely to make just one change
to their team from Auckland,
with spinner Ish Sodhi coming
in for Todd Astle, who has a
side strain.

is out of the spotlight,
enjoying his football,
and revelling in the
task of keeping Crystal
Palace in the top flight.
But do not count on the
winger staying in the shadows
for too long. Townsend, 26,
fully intends to add to the
13 England caps he earned in a
whirlwind spell between 2013
and 2016.
Watching England play Italy
this week only brought back
memories of the seventh cap
he won, in March 2015, when
he came on as a substitute and
scored the equaliser in a 1-1
draw with the Italians with a
sweet right-foot shot.
Townsend firmly believes
the England ship has not yet
sailed, even though his last
cap was in November 2016,
against Spain at Wembley.
First, though, is the job of
keeping Palace in the Premier
League, starting with a crucial
clash against Liverpool at
Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Any chance of an England
return depends on success in
that task – and for a player
who
has
already
been
relegated twice, it is one he
knows all about. And it is one
he relishes.

with the way I am playing and
helping the team.
“Obviously I would like to be
back in the spotlight, but first
and foremost Palace need to
stay up.”
The arrival of Roy Hodgson,
who replaced Frank De Boer
in September when Palace
were bottom of the table
without a point, has helped.
It was Hodgson who gave
Townsend his chance as an
England player, and he said:
“The manager is relentless.
After a win on Saturday, you’re
in on Monday preparing hard
for the next game. It never
gives you the chance to relax.
“When he came in, we were

He

definitely what we needed.
“It’s no secret that I owe a
lot to Roy because he gave me
my first caps. I am extremely
grateful to him. And at club
level he has given me the
confidence to keep going.”
His form has picked up since
the arrival of Hodgson – even
though the manager had
crushed Townsend in 2016 by
leaving him out of his England
squad for the European

Waifs and strays
NEVILLE: Missed out three times
Shop until
you are
dropped
says Phil
By Matthew Dunn
PHIL NEVILLE offers Gareth
Southgate just one piece of advice
ahead of the difficult task of
telling players they have not
made his final 23 for Russia.
It is easier to do it in
Debenhams than La Manga.
The England Women manager
suffered the heartache of narrowly
missing out on a seat on the plane
in 1998, 2002 and 2006.
The first time was at the
England get-together in La Manga
under Glenn Hoddle when Paul
Gascoigne reacted so badly to his
omission he trashed a hotel room.
Neville took the news better,
but admitted it was easier the
next two times when, by
coincidence, he was in the same
department store when the call
came. “The first one I was in
La Manga, the next two I was in
Debenhams
and I got a
call off
Sven-Goran
Eriksson to
tell me I
hadn’t made
the World
Cup,” Neville
recalled. “It
was actually a
good excuse
to go home
and get out of
the Trafford Centre – 1998 was
the worst because that was my
World Cup, I was in my peak.
“It’s 100 per cent easier if you’re
home when told. I flew home from
La Manga with six others who had
been left out, was picked up at the
airport by my wife and my father,
drove home. That was torture.”
In fairness, Southgate does not
need telling it is a bad idea to drop
players to their face, having had an
appointment with Hoddle at
La Manga straight after
Gascoigne. “It’s about managing
expectations,” said Southgate.
“There are some who have worked
with us for quite a while and know
they will be part of the squad.
“There are others who know
after the conversations I’ve had
with them that they are on the
edge of it. I’ve got to keep those
conversations going over the next
few weeks, letting people know
how I see it, so in the end it
doesn’t come as dramatically. It’s
never enjoyable for either person.”
Gareth stumbles on
experienced final 23
IT HAS been slow and
steady and nobody can
quite understand how he
has done it.
But when he unveils his final
23 for Russia, Gareth Southgate
will have turned the only collection
of homegrown waifs and strays
able to get a kick in the greatest
league in the world into a Premier
League select XI.
There is a miserable lack of
numbers that an England manager
has to choose from nowadays, but
23 names seem to have bubbled up
to the top which contain some
genuine world-class pedigree.
Leaving
the
goalkeeping
situation aside, Southgate’s 20
outfield players are likely to include
five from Tottenham, four each from
Liverpool and Manchester United
and three from Manchester City.
It is as if the top teams in the
Premier

come

the continent’s elite competition
between them. Not just bit-part
players, then.
Suddenly, in that context, you
start to wonder if England do have
a team going to the World Cup for
something more than just making
up the numbers.
Southgate will not finalise his 23
until after the season but the
England manager’s intentions can
be anticipated fairly consistently,
with the only question remaining
over whether he will trust in Jack
Wilshere’s physical fitness or look
to blood Ruben Loftus-Cheek in
anticipation of future challenges.
Southgate is a man who likes to
keep his cards close to his chest
but already he is beginning to let
the cat out of the bag –
inadvertently checking in
seven names on to the
flight when explaining
his attacking options
after the 1-1 draw with

when discussing the
challenge to Dele Alli.

although I don’t
foresee a scenario where
those guys don’t come to
Russia with us.”

WHY IT SHOULD BE JACK
GARETH SOUTHGATE should take Jack
Wilshere to Russia despite the perennial injury
worries over the Arsenal midfielder.
As he has been doing this season for the
Gunners, Wilshere gives the midfield a driving
aggression that only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
can offer England at the moment. Jesse
Lingard is all about touch and guile, Jordan
Henderson sits deep.
The choice is really between two players
whose fitness is questionable – Wilshere or
Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The latter has missed
a huge chunk of the season through injury.
Wilshere has more experience and is that
little bit more streetwise. But his knee injury
– tendinopathy – flares up regularly.
Wilshere is without doubt a risk and could be
the one decision that keeps Southgate awake
before the final call. But fit and on form, he is
still a fine player who can run a game.
TONY BANKS
return to the squad, having missed
out on Euro 2016.
The Champions League football
on offer at Anfield appears to be
the key, with Southgate packing
his squad with players used to
playing at the very highest level.
Past England managers have
quaintly cast their nets wide when
it comes to filling the plane.
Compared to Southgate’s tally
of 16, Roy Hodgson’s World Cup
squad in 2014 drew on only 11 from
the top four teams in the Premier
League, as did Fabio Capello four
years earlier. Sven-Goran Eriksson
was blessed with half of the
Manchester United team when he
took over. But 11 top-four players
in 2002 had grown to 14 in 2006 –
albeit with players from Bayern
Munich and Real Madrid to boot.
Not
since
that
‘Golden
Generation’ of 2006 have England
prepared to set off for a tournament
with such a collective mentality of
knowing each time they play they
are expected to win at club level.
It is the sort of mindset that

MANCHESTER CITY will open talks with Raheem Sterling over a new contract at the
end of the season.
Sterling, man of the match for England in their draw with Italy, has two years left on
his current deal but City want to continue their policy of tying up their major stars for
the long term well ahead of their contracts expiring. Already this season Kevin
De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi
have signed new deals.
Sterling, 23, has enjoyed his best season so far, scoring
20 goals with 11 assists in all competitions for City.

WHY IT SHOULD BE RUBEN
CRYSTAL PALACE midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is the identikit model
of what Gareth Southgate wants his England players to be: tall, athletic,
fast, strong – and more than capable of playing a bit of football.
The inclusion of the 22-year-old would be the
forward-thinking England manager’s little treat to himself
with one eye on Qatar 2022. Experience of being around
the squad and coping with the stresses involved can only
fast-track his development.
He could be an asset in Russia, too, and
the player of the Under-21 tournament
at Toulon in 2016 has a history of
stepping up to the plate.
At 6ft 3ins, he would bring
much-needed height to
Southgate’s pacy but

“I feel I’m physically and mentally
as fresh as anyone going into the
end of the season and going into

That is the positive mental
energy Southgate wants to take to
Russia with him. A belief that
comes from sharing a dressing
room with players such as
Mohamed Salah.
It may be a vicarious
hope, but after two
World Cups in which
England

great competition for places but he is
well in that mix and his relationship
with Harry, is of course, a really
important factor in that.
“That is one of the big things about
being an England manager, you will
have decisions to make.
“Dele is well in the frame and
there is no reason he cannot come
to Russia and have an impact on that
tournament.
“We have seen the ability he has.
I am looking forward to watching him
over the next few weeks.”
Southgate claimed that he had
planned to give Alli at least a cameo
against Italy at Wembley, before a
late injury to defender John Stones
disrupted those plans. Furthermore,
JAMIE VARDY is not happy
with a VAR system that leaves
players standing around on a
football pitch “like schoolkids”
and warned it must be perfected
before the World Cup this
summer.
The Leicester striker scored his
first England goal for a year and a
day on Tuesday to put Gareth
Southgate’s team ahead against
Italy at Wembley, only for VAR to
intervene and deny his team a
win.
German referee Deniz Aytekin
belatedly decided to consult the
pitch-side screen after England
debutant James Tarkowski
collided with Italy striker
Federico Chiesa as he raced into
the area three minutes from the
end. Aytekin ruled there had been
a foul, even though it looked as if
Chiesa was
already
falling, and
Lorenzo
Insigne’s
penalty
earned Italy a
draw from a
game which
England had
largely
dominated.
“The worst
thing about
VAR, not just for the players but
fans as well, is that it just says
VAR’s in use. You are stood
around not knowing what’s going
on and the crowd is sat there
waiting,” said Vardy.
“The fans don’t know whether
to celebrate. We had one in the
FA Cup against Fleetwood for
Leicester, where Kelechi
Iheanacho scored.
“The referee’s gone to VAR,
Iheanacho’s not had a chance to
celebrate with his team-mates,
and then at the end of it all it’s
like schoolkids running around
everywhere – ‘Yeah, we’ve scored,
where is he? Let’s go celebrate’. It
needs a lot of work.
“It won’t stop players, we will
still go into challenges. They use
it in other sports where it’s up on
a big screen so that everyone can
see what the video referee is
looking at.
“It’s still down to the referees
to try to get to the right decision
in the first place.”
the Three Lions boss was at pains to
insist he was not trying to deliver
any sort of message with the
international snub.
“There is no ulterior motive for
leaving him out,” he said.
FIFA regulations insist that
Southgate submits a ‘release list’
of 35 players on May 14 – the day
after the Premier League season
finishes. The final list of 23 names
must be chosen from those by
June 4.
Southgate has indicated, however,
that he will announce his 23 at the
earliest possible opportunity after
the English club season ends,
with just a handful of additional
players put on standby in case of
injury.

It is the latest in a series of
racist incidents involving Russian
supporters and a huge concern
for the organisers who have
pledged a crackdown before the
World Cup starts on June 14. A
FIFA spokesman said: “We are
collecting the different match
reports and potential evidence in
regards to the discriminatory
incident reported in the media.”
French Sports Minister Laura
Flessel-Colovic tweeted: “Racism
has no place on the football pitch.
We have to act in unison to put an
end to these inadmissable
actions.”
Pogba made the first of Kylian
Mbappe’s two goals and added a
30-yard free-kick himself.

BARRITT: Plate in face
Barritt
to play
in pain
By Neil Squires
SARACENS will have
‘The Terminator’ on
board for the Champions
Cup quarter-final at
Leinster on Sunday with
captain Brad Barritt
playing with a titanium
plate in his face.
Barritt broke his
cheekbone in Saturday’s
Premiership game
against Harlequins and
underwent surgery on
Tuesday but, incredibly,
was back training
yesterday.
“This is not a game
you want to miss,” said
the former England
centre. “It is not
something that is going
to rule me out for the
weekend.”
Barritt chose to have
the operation, which was
carried out through his
mouth, under local
anaesthetic to minimise
the impact on his
training week.
“We couldn’t believe it
when we heard the news
and then saw the
pictures. Next minute
he’s back training with
the boys,” said Saracens
wing Sean Maitland. “It
shows how tough he is –
The Terminator.”
Billy Vunipola has not
recovered from his
broken arm in time to
play while Owen Farrell
is rated 50-50 with a
thigh strain.
