Labour MP ?called Tory
candidate token ghetto boy?
By Richard Vaughan
A Labour MP has been accused
of making a ?racist? comment
after describing a black Conservative parliamentary candidate as a
?token ghetto boy?.
Emma Dent Coad, who narrowly
won the Kensington seat in June?s
general election, made the com-
ments about Shaun Bailey in a personal blog in 2010.
Mr Bailey, a former adviser to
David Cameron, called yesterday
for Ms Dent Coad to apologise and
the Labour Party to consider suspending her.
According to Guido Fawkes website, which unearthed the blog post,
Ms Dent Coad also quoted unnamed

?former neighbours? who described
him as ?a free-loading scumbag?.
Mr Bailey told the website: ?I
am shocked and saddened by the
hate-?lled, racist article written by
Labour MP Emma Dent Coad. She
should publicly apologise for these
latest slurs ? not just to me but to
the wider black community ? and
the Labour Party should consider
her position.?
Labour refused to comment. A
spokesman for Emma Dent Coad
said: ?Emma was quoting what Bailey himself had said about his neighbourhood, together with comments
from Tory colleagues on the council.?

Conservatives
wanted Grenfell
tragedy rating
By Richard Vaughan
Tory activists have been condemned
for circulating a letter asking local
residents to rate the importance of
the Grenfell Tower tragedy on a scale
of zero to 10.
The request is part of a wider
questionnaire issued by the Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham branch of
the Conservative Party on various
local issues.
As well as asking the importance
of the Grenfell Tower fire, it seeks
residents? views on issues such as recycling, rubbish and street cleaning
in the area.
The letter to residents of Court?eld Ward in the West London borough asks them to ?circle the number
which represents how important to
you and your family each of the following local issues [is]?. The first
issue listed is: ?The tragedy of Grenfell Tower and help for the families
affected and the wider community.?
It comes just ?ve months after an
estimated 80 people were killed by a
?re that tore through the 24-storey
tower in Kensington.
Andrew Gwynne, Labour?s shadow
communities and local government
secretary, blasted the local Tory
branch for posting the letter.
Mr Gwynne said: ?Grenfell was a
national tragedy and this incredibly
insensitive letter is a further insult
to the residents who are trying to rebuild their lives, many of whom have
still not been rehoused. The Conservatives should withdraw it and apologise immediately.?
Another Labour MP, David Lammy,
who lost a friend in the tragedy, criticised the note. ?What is wrong with
these people? What sort of society
are we becoming?? he said on Twitter.
The Conservative-run Kensington
and Chelsea Council came under
enormous criticism for its handling
of the Grenfell Tower ?re, which led
to the council leader being forced
to quit. But the council quickly distanced itself from the letter, stating it
had nothing to do with the note.
Neither the Kensington, Chelsea
and Fulham Conservative Association nor the Conservative Party
headquarters responded to requests
for comments.
An investigation into the
?re is under way but it
is believed that a faulty fridge
sparked the blaze at Grenfell
Tower before it ?ared out of
control. Hundreds of people have
been left homeless as a result.
EDUCATION
Students would
avoid ?bronze?
universities
By Richard Vaughan
EDUCATION CORRESPONDENT
Half of students said they would have
thought twice about applying to their
university if they had known it was
given a bronze award under a new
rating system, research has shown.
The Teaching Excellence Framework was introduced to give people
a better idea of the teaching quality
and learning outcomes from every
university, rating them as gold, silver
or bronze. But ?ndings from a survey
of 9,000 students from across 123
institutions show that 50 per cent of
students would not have applied, or
would have reconsidered applying, to
a bronze-rated university.
It means students would have
thought twice about studying at the
prestigious London School of Economics, as well as Liverpool University and Southampton University, all
of which were rated bronze.
A bronze award of?cially denotes
?high quality, but not the highest
quality? teaching and learning. But
according to the specialist website
WonkHE, which published the results, students are taking it to mean
?probably not very good?.

Tom Tugendhat, the Tory chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, suggested that the Foreign

?Incredible? women inmates
?are keeping my wife strong?
By Kate Proctor
A group of ?incredibly brave? women
at a prison in Iran are keeping up the
spirits of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe,
who has been in jail since April 2016.
Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe,
said a human rights activist and lawyer, Narges Mohammadi, and other
political prisoners were offering
support to his wife inside Evin jail.
Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe has formed a
strong bond with about 20 women in
the prison, whose record of torture
and beatings has been condemned
by international campaigners. Ms
Zaghari-Ratcliffe has suffered severe physical and mental trauma
since being arrested as she tried
to leave Tehran last year with her
daughter Gabriella after a holiday.
?The easiest thing to do is to lie on
your mattress feeling sorry for yourself,? said Mr Ratcliffe.
?They sat her down and said ?why
don?t you teach English to the other
prisoners??, so she does that once a
week. This is experienced women

Johnson apologises for ?suffering?
he caused to Zaghari-Ratcliffe
Boris Johnson has apologised to
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her
family, 12 days after he wrongly said
she was in Iran to train journalists.
His comments had been seized
upon in Iran as proof that the jailed
British-Iranian mother was in the
country as a spy, raising the prospect of her serving another five
years behind bars.
The Foreign Secretary faced
anger last week when he stopped
short of an unquali?ed apology for
appearing to contradict her claim
that she was on holiday in Iran when
she was arrested.
Labour has demanded that he
resigns for worsening Ms ZaghariRatcliffe?s plight.
Mr Johnson told the Commons
yesterday: ?Of course I apologise for
the distress, for the suffering that
has been caused by the impression
I gave that I believed she was there
in a professional capacity. She was
there on holiday.?
The shadow Foreign Secretary,
Emily Thornberry, accused him of
a ?week of obfuscation and bluster?.
She added: ?If it is a matter of
pride that the Foreign Secretary
is refusing to admit that simply
he has made a mistake, then I feel
bound to say to him that his pride
matters not one ounce compared to
Nazanin?s freedom.?
Mr Johnson has said he will visit
Iran by the end of the year to press
the case for her freedom.
He disclosed that he is to meet the
jailed woman?s husband, Richard
Ratcliffe, to discuss the possibility of her being offered ?diplomatic
protection? as a way of securing her
release. That would strengthen her
legal protection and raise her position from a consular case to a formal
dispute between the two countries.
Mr Ratcliffe said: ?There?s a
way in which the Government will
stand up and protect her much
more stridently if she is given
diplomatic protection.

Mandarin and Arabic will be key
to the UK?s future prosperity after
Brexit, according to a report.
The nation will need the two languages, as well Spanish, French and

But the British Council warns that

until now, was seen
as too insigni?cant for
any major effort by the
UK Government ? indeed, she
was too insigni?cant for Boris
Johnson to read his brief and stick
to his script.
However, the UN Working
Group on Arbitrary Detention has
been taking action on her behalf,
by examining the evidence and
establishing that Ms ZaghariRatcliffe had come to Iran to visit
her family with her child.
Following concerns for Ms
Zaghari-Ratcliffe?s health, UN
human rights rapporteurs have
made appeals to the Iranian
authorities, repeating requests
for her release and for the medical
treatment she has been denied.
Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe is
already serving a ?ve-year term
in the notorious Evin prison
in Tehran, which holds many
political prisoners, and she could
face an additional 16 years of
imprisonment if convicted on
new charges.
The way forward for Mr
Johnson is to take Ms ZaghariRatcliffe and her case seriously,
as the UN has done. He must
approach different Iranian
authorities. Build alliances
with other states and the NGO
community. Let UK diplomats do
their job, and assist them without
further ministerial gaffes. Use
forums such as the UN Human
Rights Council to further her

four years ago, while Arabic dropped

Redwood criticised over ?invest overseas? advice
By Padraic Flanagan
One of Parliament?s biggest cheerleaders for Brexit has faced ?erce
criticism for suggesting investors
put their money into Europe rather than the UK.
Labour has accused Eurosceptic John Redwood, the Tory MP
for Wokingham and a former
banker, of ?talking down Britain?
after he recently wrote a column
in the Financial Times titled:
?Look further a?eld as UK
hits the brakes.?
Mr Redwood (inset),
who also earns �0,000
a year as chairman of an
investment committee
for the Charles Stanley
Group, suggests the European Central Bank will offer
more fruitful investments than
the Bank of England.
?Mario Draghi, ECB president, is now doing whatever it takes, not just
to rescue the euro but
to promote a muchneeded economic recovery,? he wrote. He
also compared the US
and Japan?s approach
favourably to the UK?s.
Downing Street declined
to comment directly on the column.

Theresa May last night launched a
searing attack on Russia, accusing
Moscow of attempting to undermine
Western society before warning
Vladimir Putin: ?We know what you
are doing and you will not succeed.?
In one of her most forthright condemnations of the Russian leader,
the Prime Minister accused Russia
of ?weaponising information? and
?meddling in elections?.
Addressing the Lord Mayor?s Banquet, the Prime Minister warned the
UK will work with allies to ?take the
necessary action? to ensure Russia
does not succeed in its campaign to
?sow discord in the West? and split
the Nato allies.
But offering an alternative to a
return to con?ict between East and
West, she added: ?We do not want to
return to the Cold War, or to be in a
state of perpetual confrontation.?
The Prime Minister?s speech
comes at a time when MPs and Remain supporters are questioning
whether Russia was involved in the
Brexit vote, following claims social
media sites may have been used by
operatives to post Leave messages.
Mrs May went on: ?Russia?s illegal
annexation of Crimea was the first
time since the Second World War
that one sovereign nation has forcibly taken territory from another
in Europe.
?Since then, Russia has fomented
con?ict in the Donbass [region], repeatedly violated the national airspace of several European countries,
and mounted a sustained campaign
of cyber espionage and disruption.
?This has included meddling in
elections and hacking the Danish
Ministry of Defence and the Bundestag, among many others.
?So I have a very simple message
for Russia. We know what you are
doing. And you will not succeed.
Because you underestimate the resilience of our democracies and the
commitment of Western nations to
the alliances that bind us.
?The UK will do what is necessary
to protect ourselves, and work with
our allies to do likewise.?

She pledged to deepen partnerships with countries in Asia to

we have played a leading role in securing sanctions in response to the

Parliament ?will have final
say on final Brexit deal?
By Nigel Morris
POLITICAL EDITOR
David Davis has bowed to pressure
to allow Parliament a vote on the ?nal
Brexit agreement ? but warned
if it is blocked the UK will
leave the European Union
without any deal at all.
The Brexit Secretary?s pledge to enshrine
the deal in law came
after Remain-supporting
Tories warned they were
ready to defeat the Government by demanding a legally
binding vote ahead of withdrawal.
Giving MPs and peers a vote
presents ministers with a fresh
parliamentary hurdle to clear before Brexit takes place and will give
opponents a final opportunity to
amend any agreement. Mr Davis
(inset) said Parliament would be able
to scrutinise the deal ?line by line?.
But he made clear Britain will leave
the bloc on 29 March 2019 without a
deal if the legislation is defeated. His
promised Bill would cover the
terms of Britain?s departure,
as well as plans for a postBrexit transitional deal,
he told the Commons.
His move came 24
hours before the EU
(Withdrawal) Bill, which
translates European legislation into British law, returns
to the Commons.
Eight days have been set aside
for debating the legislation, with
Theresa May?s minority Government vulnerable to defeat on a slew
of amendments to the Bill. Its introduction had been delayed as ministers held talks with Tory critics.
Q&A Why the change of plan?
Why does this matter?
Any Brexit deal will now be subject
to a separate Act of Parliament,
which MPs and peers would have to
approve in early 2019.
What had previously been proposed?
To implement Brexit through a
clause of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill.
Why did they change their minds?
Ten Tory MPs had backed a call for a
?meaningful vote? using standalone
legislation, raising the prospect of
a Government defeat. It was also
argued that withdrawal had to be
enshrined in a separate Act to make
it waterproof from legal challenges.
What happens next?
The Government?s hope is that a
deal can be reached by next autumn,
which would then be put before
Parliament ahead of Brexit.
What if it was voted down?
Britain would leave the EU without
a deal.
Could MPs delay Brexit?
No. A proposed amendment to
the Withdrawal Bill con?rms that
Britain leaves the EU at 11pm on 29
March 2019 whatever happens.
What if there?s no deal?
Then there?s no Parliamentary vote.
Daisy Goodwin, the creator and
writer of ITV?s Victoria drama, has
claimed that she was sexually assaulted by an official working for
David Cameron in Downing Street.
The presenter and producer said
the unnamed of?cial ?put his hand on
my breast? at the end of a meeting to
discuss a possible television project.
Writing in Radio Times, Ms Goodwin said she chose not to report the
incident but instead sought to humiliate the civil servant verbally.
She wrote: ?At the end of the meeting we both stood up and the of?cial,
to my astonishment, put his hand
on my breast. I looked at the hand
and then in my best Lady Bracknell
voice said, ?Are you actually touching
my breast???
?He dropped his hand and laughed
nervously. I swept out in what can
only be called high dudgeon.
?I wasn?t traumatised, I was cross,
but by the next day it had become an
anecdote, The Day I Was Groped In
Number 10 ? an account of male delusion. It didn?t occur to me to report
the incident, I was ?ne, after all, and
who on earth would I report it to??
?I wonder if my Keep Calm and
Carry On philosophy, inherited from
my parents, was correct? The answer
is, I am not sure. I think humiliating
the of?cial was probably the appropriate punishment, but suppose he
tried it on with someone less able to
defend themselves??
Ms Goodwin, 55, said the official
?was a few years younger than me?.
The alleged assault took place in a
?Downing Street room dominated
by a portrait of Mrs T and we sat at
Daisy Goodwin said she humiliated
the of?cial but did not report it PA
a table carved, he told me, from one
piece of wood. Then to my surprise
he put his feet on my chair (we were

A 10 Downing Street spokesman
said: ?Allegations such as this are
taken very seriously. The Cabinet
Office would look into any formal
complaint, should one be made.?
The Metropolitan Police said it
could seek further evidence on the
alleged assault.
Ms Goodwin did not respond to a
request to comment further.
Daisy Goodwin?s story
follows several allegations
of unwanted sexual advances
at Westminster, with First
Secretary of State Damian Green
and trade minister Mark Garnier
facing inquiries.

Eating handful
of nuts twice a
week ?cuts heart
disease risk?
By Padraic Flanagan
Eating a variety of nuts at least
twice a week cuts the risk of
heart disease by almost a quarter,
research suggests.
The study, published in the
Journal of the American College of
Cardiology, shows that regularly
consuming a handful of different
nuts provides signi?cant protection
against the world?s biggest killer.
Researchers found walnuts, peanuts, cashews, almonds, pistachios
and Brazil nuts had a markedly
positive effect on heart health compared with the results for those who
rarely or never ate them.
The study looked at more than
210,000 people working in the US
health professions over a 32-year
period, and was led by Dr Marta
Guasch-Ferre, a nutritionist at Harvard University in Boston.
She found that those who ate any
of the tree nuts two or more times a
week were 23 to 15 per cent less like-
ly to develop coronary heart disease
or cardiovascular disease, including
strokes and high blood pressure, respectively. The same amount of peanuts ? which are classed as a legume
? also reduced the risk of the conditions by up to 15 per cent.
Eating walnuts one or more times
a week reduced coronary heart
disease by 21 per cent and cardiovascular disease risk by
19 per cent.
Dr Guasch-Ferre said
the study, the largest
ever to look at the
frequency of nut consumption and its link
to cardiovascular disease, strengthened the
reputation of nuts as a
?superfood?.
?Our ?ndings support recommendations of increasing the
intake of a variety of nuts, as part of
healthy dietary patterns, to reduce
the risk of chronic disease in the
general population,? she said.
Why they?re good for you
Nuts have enjoyed a long-standing
reputation as a ?superfood?, with
numerous studies providing
evidence of their health bene?ts.
They are high in antioxidants,
proteins, nutrients, minerals and
?bre, and nutritionists have for
some time urged their inclusion in
a balanced, healthy diet. They have
been found to protect against a host
of serious illnesses, including heart
disease, cancer, diabetes, respiratory
conditions and dementia.
A study by Imperial College
London last year con?rmed that
consuming a regular handful of nuts
helped protect against diseases.
It also suggested that, while
nuts are high in fat, there was also
evidence they could reduce the risk
of obesity.
Her analysis of the large-scale
study showed a consistent
link between the quantities of nuts consumed
and cardiovascular
disease and coronary
heart disease.
In an editorial for
the journal, Dr Emilio
Ros, of the Hospital
Clinic in Barcelona,
claimed that the results
suggested nuts really do
protect against heart disease.
He wrote: ?Raw nuts, if possible
unpeeled and otherwise unprocessed, may be considered as natural
health capsules.?

CO2 emissions on rise again
? and will hit record high
By Tom Bawden
ENVIRONMENT CORRESPONDENT
Carbon dioxide emissions are set
to hit record levels this year ? at a
time when they need to be reducing
sharply, scientists have warned.
Experts had hoped that, after
remaining steady for three years,
greenhouse gas emissions had peaked and would soon begin to fall.
But yesterday researchers predicted that CO2 emissions in 2017
would jump by two per cent, to an
all-time high of 41bn tons.
The rise was attributed, at least in
part, to the US and China burning
signi?cantly more coal.
Every world leader ? with the notable exception of President Donald
Trump ? has pledged to limit climate
change to ?well below 2癈?.
?By continuing to cause this inexorable rise in CO2, we are pushing the climate closer and closer to
the edge of our comfort zone,? said
Professor Richard Betts, of the University of Exeter and the Met Of?ce
Hadley Centre.
Dr Stephen Cornelius, WWF?s
chief adviser on climate change,
added: ?This increase is deeply worrying for our planet after three years
of no growth.?
History repeating?
At more than 400 parts per million,
the concentration of CO2 in the
Earth?s atmosphere is almost 50 per
cent higher than it was at the start of
the Industrial Revolution.
But there have been times in the
past ? 55 million years ago and, again,
130 million years ago ? when levels
were even higher than that.
Both cases were caused by ?continental rifting? ? a process in which
the Earth?s crust opens up, releasing
huge quantities of CO2, researchers
from the University of Sydney and
the German Research Centre for
Geosciences wrote in the journal
Nature Geoscience.

and published in the journals Nature
Climate Change, Earth System Science
and Environmental Research Letters.
CO2 emissions have decreased
in 22 countries, representing a ?fth
of global carbon emissions, despite
significant increases in economic
output, the report noted.
And renewable energy generation
across the world has increased at 14
per cent a year over the past five
years, albeit it from a very low base.
But the news came as 15,000 scientists warned that the world is hurtling towards a major, far-reaching
environmental crisis.
Building on a report from 25 years
ago, which forecast that disregarding the planet?s resources would
cause ?vast human misery?, the
update concluded that most threats
outlined ?are getting far worse?.
The report, World Scientists? Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice,
noted that in the past 25 years, there
has been a 26 per cent reduction in
the amount of fresh water available
per capita, a loss of 470,000 sq miles
of forestland and a 29 per cent drop
in the total number of mammals,
reptiles, amphibians, birds and ?sh.

Electric car chargers may be fitted to lamp posts
By Nicholas Cecil
Electric car chargers could be installed on every residential street
lamp post in one London borough
in an attempt to inspire motorists
to give up petrol and diesel vehicles.
Councillors in Wandsworth will
discuss proposals on how to expand
the borough?s electric car-charging
network at a meeting today.
Deputy council leader Jonathan
Cook said: ?We are going to actively
explore the possibility of installing
charging plugs in all lamp posts in
our residential streets.?
If successful, the initiative is likely
to be copied around the UK.
Chancellor Philip Hammond is
expected to announce a tax on new
diesel cars in next week?s Budget.
The Government wants to stop
the sale of new diesel and petrol cars
by 2040. Diesel vehicles are blamed
for high levels of nitrogen dioxide,
which is harmful to humans.
More than 40 million people in
the UK are estimated to live in areas
with illegally high levels of pollution.
Wood burners are also a source
of air pollution, which is responsible
for 40,000 early deaths each year in
the UK. EVENING STANDARD

Stabbed teacher
?stood no chance?
against pupil, 15
Gates donates
$50m for studies
into Alzheimer?s
By Dave Higgens
A 15-year-old pupil fatally stabbed
teacher Ann Maguire in a ?completely irrational act stemming from
a deep-seated grudge?, a detective
has told the inquest into her death.
Detective Superintendent Nick
Wallen said Mrs Maguire, 61,
?stood absolutely no chance
whatsoever? when she was
attacked by Will Cornick as
she taught Spanish at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds, in April 2014.
Det Supt Wallen was givingevidence on the?rst day of
the inquest into Mrs Maguire?s
death which is due to last two weeks
at Wake?eld coroner?s court.
He detailed the ?shocking?
events at the school, describing
how the ?slight? and ?petite? teacher was ?ambushed? by a ?strapping
15-year-old lad?.
He said she was stabbed seven
times with a kitchen knife that
Cornick had brought from home, including one blow that cut her jugular
vein. Det Supt Wallen said Cornick
(inset) and his family were not known
to the police or any safeguarding
agencies before the incident.
He said that Facebook messages
exchanged with another pupil
around Christmas 2013,
discovered after the killing, showed a ?hatred?
for Mrs Maguire and
talked about attacking
her. The other child involved in the exchange
did not believe Cornick?s
threats were real.
Det Supt Wallen said
that before the murder, Cornick
stormed out of a meeting involving
Mrs Maguire, when she had argued
that he should not be allowed to drop
Spanish as a subject. Previously,
Mrs Maguire had put him in detention rather than go on a bowling trip,
but he went on the trip anyway.
However, the detective told the

Fears death toll will rise after huge
quake kills 400 and injures 6,600
By Parisa Hafezi
IN BAGHDAD
More than 400 people have been
killed following a magnitude 7.3
earthquake in Iran with hundreds
of rescuers searching for survivors
trapped under rubble in the
mountainous area near the border
with Iraq.
State television said more than
407 people were killed and that
at least 6,600 were injured. Local
of?cials fear the death toll will rise
as search and rescue teams reach
remote areas.
The earthquake was felt in
several western provinces of Iran
but the hardest hit province was
Kermanshah. More than 300 of the
victims were in Sarpol-e-Zahab
county in Kermanshah province,
about 10 miles from the Iraq border.

Costa Rica Hit by tremor
A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.5 shook Costa
Rica on Sunday night, sending people
rushing out into the streets in panic.
Authorities said there were
reports of at least two serious injuries as a result of the quake.
Power lines fell, but there were
no reports of major infrastructure
damage from the tremor, which hit
a lightly populated area along the
Paci?c Coast. The government said
landslides had blocked some roads
near the epicentre.
The US Geological Survey said
that the earthquake was centred
about 10 miles south-east of the
town of Jaco, which is about 60
miles south-west of the, Costa Rican
capital San Jose. AP
Sunday?s quake also triggered
landslides that hindered rescue
efforts, of?cials told state television.
At least 14 provinces in Iran had
been affected.
Iranian Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei offered his
condolences, urging government
agencies to do all they could to
help those affected. Appeals for
blood donors have been broadcast
on television.
Turkish Red Crescent chairman
Kerem Kinik told broadcaster
NTV that Red Crescent teams in
Erbil were preparing to go to the
site of the earthquake and Turkey?s
national disaster management
agency and national medical rescue
teams were also preparing to head
into neighbouring Iraq. Israeli media
said the quake was also felt in many
parts of Israel. REUTERS
Images and videos have emerged
from Iran of people fleeing their
homes after Sunday?s earthquake.
More than 100 aftershocks followed.
The quake?s worst damage
appeared to be in the town of Sarpole-Zahab in Kermanshah province,
which sits in the Zagros Mountains
that divide Iran and Iraq.
Tempers frayed in the quakehit area as the search went on for
survivors amidst the twisted rubble
of collapsed buildings. State TV
aired footage of damaged buildings,
vehicles under rubble and wounded
people wrapped in blankets.
?We need a shelter,? a middle-aged
man in Sarpol-e Zahab told state
TV. ?Where is the aid? Where is the

another night outside in cold
weather, he said.
Ko k a b Fa r d ,
a 49-year- old
housewife, said
she fled emptyhanded when
her apartment
complex collapsed.
?Immediately after
I managed to get out,
the building collapsed,?
Fard said. ?I have no access

Reza Mohammadi, 51, said he and
his family ran out into the alley after
the first shock. ?I tried to get back
to pick up some stuff but it totally
collapsed in the second wave,? Mr
Mohammadi said.
Sarpol-e-Zahab residents said
the power and water were out and
telephone and cellphone lines were
spotty. The quake could be felt across
Iraq, shaking buildings and homes
from Erbil to Baghdad, where people
?ed into the streets of the capital.
Amina Mohammed, who survived
the quake in Darbandikhan, Iraq, said
she and her sons escaped their home
as it collapsed around them. ?I think
it was only God that saved us,? she
said. ?I screamed to God and it must
have been him who stopped the stairs
from entirely collapsing on us.?
The Iraqi city of Halabja, closest
to the epicentre, was the target of
a 1988 chemical attack by Saddam

Second lynx at zoo is
killed after ?terrible
handling error?
Thief steal?s
jeweller?s �
of gems on train
By Johanna Carr
A zoo is facing calls to close after
it emerged that a second lynx was
accidentally strangled within days
of the fatal shooting of Lillith, a lynx
which escaped from its enclosure at
the Welsh seaside attraction.
Borth Wild Animal Kingdom near
Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, has
been criticised for having
?no understanding of
wild animal behaviour
or welfare needs? by
the Lynx UK Trust.
The trust said the
second big cat died as
keepers tried to move
it to another enclosure
using a dog noose.
In a statement on its
Facebook page, the zoo confirmed
that Nilly, an adult female who was
unrelated to Lillith but shared an
enclosure with her, had died.
It added: ?Unfortunately, there
seems to have been a terrible
h a n d l i n g e r ro r. A n i n t e r n a l
investigation is under way.?
Lillith (inset), an 18-month-old
Eurasian lynx twice the size of a
domestic cat, was shot dead on
Friday night after the local authority
received advice from a vet that the
risk to public wellbeing had increased
from moderate to severe.
But zoo staff insisted that the
animal, which had been missing
since 29 October, was no
threat to humans and they
were ?devastated and
outraged? by her death.
The trust, which
campaigns for the reintroduction of lynx into
the wild in the UK, said
it had been investigating
the circumstances
surrounding the escape and
shooting of Lillith when it was
told that the second lynx had died.
Dean and Tracy Tweedy took over
the zoo less than six months ago.
In a statement, they said they
knew there were serious issues
with how some of the animals were
housed and had been working hard
to make ?vast improvements?.

Rubens? daughter on show
An intimate family portrait by
the Flemish painter Peter Paul
Rubens, which has never been
seen in Britain before, is to go on
display at the Scottish National
Gallery in Edinburgh this winter.
The newly cleaned Portrait of
the Artist?s Daughter, Clara Serena
was probably painted in about
1623, not long before she died at
the age of 12. Curator Tico Seifert
said: ?I am sure this little gem will
resonate with our visitors and
inspire their imagination.?
A jewellery dealer had a suitcase
containing � of gems stolen from
him on a train.
British Transport Police are
investigating the theft from the
35-year-old, which happened at about
6.30pm last Wednesday.
The dealer told of?cers he boarded
the 7.03pm service at Euston to travel
to Birmingham New Street with a
bag containing more than 40 gems
that included rubies, emeralds, and
sapphires ? together worth more
than �.
He put his suitcase on a luggage
rack, but when the train arrived at
Rugby he realised it was missing.
However, detectives believe the
suitcase was probably stolen from
the train before it left Euston.
Police are keen to speak to a darkhaired man shown on CCTV images
who appears to be talking on his
mobile phone.
Detective S ergeant Nick
Thompson added: ?I?d also like to
hear from anyone who was on board
the train or at Euston station on
Wednesday evening, who may have
seen a man acting suspiciously.?

LIZ SMITH GOSSIP COLUMNIST
I?m afraid to
say the Prime
Minister?s
tone-deaf,
tin-eared
article was
guaranteed
to continue
to deepen
divisions
Nicky Morgan
The former
education secretary
on Theresa May?s
?Daily Telegraph?
article announcing
the UK?s departure
date from the EU
Liz Smith, the New York gossip
columnist whose mixture of banter and
barbs about the glitterati made her as
famous as them, has died aged 94.
For more than a quarter of a century,
Smith?s column - titled simply ?Liz
Smith? - was one of the most widely
read in the world. Its success was due
in part to Smith?s own celebrity status,
giving her an insider?s access rather
than relying on tipsters, press releases
and publicists.
The Texas native scored major
tabloid scoops, including Donald and
Ivana Trump?s divorce and Woody
Allen and Mia Farrow?s impending
parenthood. One item proved
embarrassingly premature: In 2012, she
released a column online mourning the
death of her friend Nora Ephron. But
Ephron, who was indeed gravely ill, did
not die until a few hours later.
Smith held a light-hearted opinion
of her own legacy. ?We mustn?t take
ourselves too seriously in this world of
gossip,? she said in 1987. ?What I do is
pretty insigni?cant. Still, I?m having a
lot of fun.?
She was born Mary Elizabeth Smith
in Fort Worth, in 1923. As a young girl,
Smith fell in love with the silver screen,
since movies were one of the few things
her devout Baptist mother did not
consider a sin.
After a brief marriage, Smith earned
her journalism degree and set off for
New York in 1949 with two suitcases and
$50. For nearly 30 years, she bounced
from job to job: publicist for singer Kaye
Ballard; assistant to Mike Wallace and
Candid Camera creator Allen Funt; and
ghostwriter for a gossip column. It was
a stint writing for Cosmopolitan that led
to her break. While establishing herself
as an authority on Elizabeth Taylor and
Richard Burton, Smith attracted the
attention of the New York Daily News.
She started her own column at the
tabloid in 1976. A gossip star was born.
In 1978, during a strike at the paper,
Smith helped usher in the era of
celebrity journalism on television by
joining WNBC-TV for three nights a
week commentary. Ten years later she
moved to Fox. During that time, she
migrated from the News to the New York
Post and ?nally to Newsday. Her column
was syndicated nationwide.
Whether reporting on entertainers,
politicians or power brokers, the ?Dame
of Dish? never bothered with unfounded
rumours, sexual preferences or
who?s-sleeping-with-who.
?When she escorts us into the private
lives of popular culture?s gods and
monsters, it?s with a spirit of wonder,
not meanness,? wrote Jane and Michael
Stern in reviewing Smith?s 2000
autobiography Natural Blonde.
Smith was married a second time,
but it was also short-lived. In her
2000 book, Smith wrote that she had
relationships with men and women,
and con?rmed a long-term relationship
with archaeologist Iris Love.
Smith raised a lot of money for
charities such as Literacy Volunteers,
which teaches adults to read and write,
to the Women?s Action Alliance, which
promotes full equality for women.

Thank heavens for tolerance
Church advice on children and gender identity is good news
Absolutely
fabulous: Some
children may not
see dressing up
as just a passing
phase GETTY
T
he modern Church of
England, being one of
the more infuriatingly
reasonable and
malleable of all
religions, has
dispatched some calmly sensible
guidelines around kids, gender and
bullying. Childhood, they have said
to their 4,700 schools, should be a
time of ?creative exploration?.
If boys want to wear tiaras or
tutus then, in essence, let them
do their thing. ?Children should
be afforded freedom from the
expectation of permanence,? the
guidelines say. ?They are in a ?trying
on? stage of life, and not yet adult
and so no labels need to be ?xed.?
To paraphrase, if your little
boy pines to be the Christmas
fairy in this year?s end-of-term
extravaganza rather than, say, one
of the Three Wise Men, then let it
slide. Don?t sweat the small stuff.
These neatly and kindly worded
thoughts on transphobic and
biphobic bullying aim to ?prevent
pupils? having their self-worth
diminished or their ability to
achieve impeded by being bullied?.
See, I told you today?s Church of
England leans towards the relaxed
and groovy. This is why so many,
including myself, have stuck around
so long. Even if, four decades after
my time at Bishop Goodwin Church
of England infant and junior school,
the odds of that promised ?Second
Coming of Christ? feel decidedly
patchy. I have pertinent questions
on the Virgin Birth and some of
the shonkier claims surrounding
the Ascension too, but queries
are where the Church of England
excels. The Church of England not
only relishes you doubting Christ
but will give you a lovely cup of
tea and some of Sheila?s tray-bake
Millionaire Shortbread as they try
to persuade you otherwise.
Today?s trans-tolerant Church of
England leans much more towards
a Buddhist ?let?s all try to cultivate
good thoughts and love, like Jesus
would? manner, rather than a
fundamentalist Christian, ?your
tutu-wearing kid shames Christ and
will burn in Satan?s pit? schtick.
So hooray for the CoE, right,
and hooray for increased societal
acceptance of the tedious rigidity of
gender expectations! And hooray
for a nod towards the existence of
trans kids who may eventually make
their transition, and also to the kids
who just want to test boundaries by
appearing on non-uniform day in a
stick-on moustache, stiletto heels
and a sequinned jump-suit, de?ning
themselves only as ?fabulous?. If
only, I often think, there had been
more of this thinking in the 1980s
when the sight of Nick Rhodes from
Duran Duran on Top of The Pops
wearing eye-liner and a peroxide
Princess Di bouffant made my father
hyperventilate with intolerant ire
over his Findus Crispy Pancake tea.
Hooray for the modern age!
Well, no. Observing the past
decade of heady gender debate; one
where arguments over ?norms?,
de?nition, equality and the ethics
of surgery have never been so
hotly discussed, joy in progress is
rarely found. And there are trans
It takes a dark

this news with
fury and the need
for ?something
to be done?
lobbyists, I am sure, unhappy
that the CoE?s guidelines give
potential for teachers to treat being
transgender as something ?ippant
or hobbyist, when for several kids a
tutu or tiara is not simply a phase.
Wanting to be a girl rather
than a boy, they?d argue, may not
be something a child will forget
about like ?dget spinners and
homemade slime. To this, I?d plead
to trans supporters to cut the CofE
a little slack and appreciate small
mercies. It took the CoE around
?ve centuries to accept that human
beings with vaginas could dish out
communion wafers. It may take
another decade or so before they
fully accept that a vagina may not
make one a woman at all.
For me, the most saddening sight
following the Church of England?s
guidelines were social media
comments and headlines brimming
with darkly familiar retro-bigotry;
similar attitudes we lived through
in the Seventies and Eighties
which led, in 1987, to one of the
nation?s rankest historical stains ?
Section 28, the banning of positive
education on homosexuality.
?Our kiddies,? the bigots and
the bigoted press hissed yesterday
at the CoE, ?are being taught to
be freaks and fairies. The Church
needs to be less tolerant! The
Government too!?
On breakfast news channels,
headlines were dissected pointing
towards a future with a drag show
in every infant school (a more
bawdy version of Funny Girls in
Blackpool, it seemed) which would
teach toddlers the art of crossdressing, all funded by taxpayers?
cash. It takes a dark mind to hear
news that the church would wish for
fewer children to be bullied into selfharming, suicide or merely leaving
education, and greet this pleasant
news with fetid fury and the need
for ?something to be done?.
But it took dark minds in 1987
to bring in laws prohibiting local
authorities from positive speech
on being gay or ?pretended family
relationships?, and stop councils
spending money on educational
materials perceived to promote a
gay lifestyle.
And if you think these examples
are entirely different, or that the
same types of brains who dreamed
up Section 28 aren?t in charge again,
well, sweetie, you?ve really not been
paying attention. THE INDEPENDENT

Ratner ?should
be dropped
from sequel?
Gal Gadot has reportedly
threatened to pull out of the
Wonder Woman sequel unless
the producer Brett Ratner is
dropped from the ?lm.
The Israeli actress (left) is
thought to have told Warner Bros
that she won?t sign up for a second
?lm if the producer is involved,
after numerous sexual assault
allegations were made against him.
It?s hardly surprising that Gadot
is taking a stand: Ratner has been
publicly accused of sexual harassment
by a number of women, including
the actress Natasha Henstridge ?
something which Ratner has denied.
Ellen Page wrote a statement on
Facebook claiming that Ratner outed
her while they were ?lming X-Men:
The Last Stand, adding: ?I felt violated.?
If the accused continue in their
lucrative careers without question any
movement which attempts to stamp
out abuse of power will fail. Gadot is
right, and brave, to take a stand.

O
n Sunday, the war dead
were remembered with all
the ceremonial exaltation
that they deserved. On
that very same day, billionaire Sir
James Dyson, designer of smart
electric goods, explained to the
BBC?s Andrew Marr why he was
a zealous Brexiter: the EU has too
many ?dif?cult employment laws?.
He wants our government to make
it easier to hire and ?re staff and to
?eliminate? corporation tax.
This weekend we also heard that
Denise Coates (inset), founder of
Bet365, is Britain?s highest-earning
businesswoman. Gambling is
addictive and a serious problem in
low-income families. Stefan Stern,
director of the High Pay Centre
think-tank spoke for many when he
responded: ?[Business] shouldn?t
be able to get rich while effectively
creating massive social problems
for the rest of us, who have to pick
up the bill for the social cost of
people broken by their commercial
success.? Coates has her platitudes
to hand: ?[Bet365] recognises its
responsibility to minimise gamblingrelated harm and to keep crime out
of gambling.?
Ah, the rich. They are
bold, inventive, focused,
with not a trace of
grimy self-doubt, guilt,
or twinges about wider
obligations. Dyson
doesn?t care about the
workers he wants to
summarily sack; Coates
could not carry on if she
saw for herself what out-of
control gambling does to men,
women and their children.
These so-called ?wealth creators?,
are those old noblemen who held
monarchs to ransom. Today?s
barons refuse to pay into the public
coffer and grab power and in?uence.
Politicians dare not gainsay them.
I was on Channel 5?s The Wright
Stuff this weekend with Dave Johns,
the star of I, Daniel Blake, that
shattering ?lm on the human cost of
austerity measures. A middle-aged
carpenter has a heart attack, can?t
work so has to apply for bene?ts.
The form is over ?fty pages long.
Tories such as Damian Green and
Iain Duncan Smith slammed the
?lm ? Green without seeing it. The
reality is even more humiliating,
more devastating, than the ?lm
shows. Some severely disabled
people are told to go and ?nd work.
I know one such applicant. He then
tried to kill himself with an overdose.
According to medical researchers,
since 2015, there have been 30,000
?excess deaths? in Britain, the
biggest spike for 50 years.
Professor Martin
McKee, from the London
School of Hygiene &
Tropical Medicine,
says: ?The impact of
cuts resulting from
the imposition of
austerity on the NHS
has been profound.
?Expenditure has failed
to keep pace with demand
and the situation has been
exacerbated by dramatic reductions
in the welfare budget of �.7bn and
in social care spending.? Food banks
need more donations. Children turn
up at school desperately hungry.
Food prices are likely to go up after
Brexit, so too fuel costs. Shelter, the
housing charity estimates around
250,000 people are now homeless.
None of this is fate or inevitability. It
is planned and managed by rampant
capitalists. Philip Hammond, the
Chancellor, will carry on with
austerity, to prove he is tough.
Those of us who are soppier are
left to wonder if soldiers perished
so we could live in this crass, unfair,
unequal, unjust world.
HARASSMENT
friends. I noted this ?rst when men
I knew who had sexually harassed
women retweeted articles attacking
Weinstein. And like so many women,
I?ve had female friends tell me stories
recently about men I once respected.
Some of our idols are ogres.
Until last Thursday I was a fan of
the comedian Louis CK. Then ?ve
women revealed in The New York
Times that he had masturbated
in front of them ? accusations he
has since con?rmed in an apology
statement that somehow misplaced
the word ?sorry?.
Louis CK sometimes hid this
women-hating in plain sight and
sometimes under a veil of feminism.
There were endless priapic jokes ?
in an episode of his television show
Louie, his character had a debate
with a Christian woman about
masturbation that ended with
him declaring: ?Later I?m going to
masturbate and think about you.?
Yet Louis CK was also hailed for
his feminist comedy, highlighting
violence against women in a sketch
on dating: ?[Men are] the No 1 cause
of injury and mayhem to women.?
We have been too quick to hail
men with a grasp of feminism as
members of ?Team Woman?. You
can recognise that the world is
patriarchal and still pro?t from it.
Louis CK would never put himself
in the same camp as the bad men of
my childhood. But while the women
he targeted were adult, they were
also women he knew he had power
over. As in kids? stories, some of the
scariest monsters wear a mask.

him ? ?that really isn?t something
worth showing off? ? a jibe handed
down the generations to try to turn
our humiliation into his.
As the drip, drip, drip of sexual
harassment and assault allegations
continues, I remember these two
men, who became the bogeymen
of my childhood. Before Harvey
Weinstein I had convinced myself
that this was about a few revolting
creeps. But these are just the easily

ARCHAEOLOGY
Wine-making ?first started
in Georgia 8,000 years ago?
By John von Radowitz
People in the Republic of Georgia
were quaffing wine 8,000 years
ago, scientists have discovered.
New archaeological evidence
has pushed back the origins of
wine 1,000 years to the Neolithic
period, when humans were still
using stone tools. Previously, the
oldest known traces of wine dated
to about 5000BC, in Iran.
Scientists believe the practice
of crushing grapes to produce a
heady alcoholic drink started up
to 1,000 years earlier, in the South
Caucasus region between eastern
Europe and western Asia.
Pottery fragments from two sites
about 30 miles south of
the Georgian capital,
Tbilisi, contained
residues that yielded
chemical signatures
of grapes and wine,
the team reported in
the journal Proceedings
of the National Academy
of Sciences. And a Neolithic
jar (right) displayed at
Fact?le
Grapes down the years
Grapes have existed for about
65 million years, and experts say
some varieties enjoyed by winelovers today are directly descended
from these primordial fruits.
The Romans are thought to be the
?rst to have called different grape
varieties by different names.
There are more than 8,000 grape
varieties known to scientists,
and more than 1,300 varieties
are currently used to make wine
around the world.
The grapes that we buy at the
supermarket ? known as table
grapes ? have much thinner
skin and far more seeds
than the varieties used
to make wine.
the Georgian National
Museum may have been
used for brewing wine.
Dr Stephen Batiuk, of
Toronto University in Canada,
said: ?We believe this is the oldest
example of the domestication of a
wild-growing Eurasian grapevine
solely for the production of wine.?
The excavated sites contained
the remains of two Neolithic
villages, at Gadachrili Gora and
Shulaveris Gora. The period is
characterised by the start of
farming and animal domestication,
as well as crafts such as pottery
and weaving, and the production of
polished stone tools.
For the Neolithic Georgians, the
drinking and offering of wine would
have permeated nearly every
aspect of life, from medical practice
to special celebrations, Dr Batiuk
added. Wine would also have been
drunk during everyday meals,
which often featured toasting.
?Dr Batiuk said: ?Today?s 8,00010,000 grape varieties are the
result of the domesticated Eurasian
grapevine being transplanted
and crossed with wild grapevines
elsewhere over and over again.
?The Eurasian grapevine that
now accounts for 99.9 per cent of
wine has its roots in Caucasia.?

Royal Ballet?s rape scene is ?thought-provoking?
By Adam Sherwin
ARTS AND MEDIA CORRESPONDENT
The Royal Ballet has said its job is
to stage ?thought-provoking work?
after a production which portrays a
woman being raped was accused of
indulging in the ?gratuitous abuse?
of women on stage.
The Wind, based on Dorothy
Scarborough?s 1925 novel, being
staged at the Royal Opera House,
tells the story of a young woman
in 1880s Texas who is attacked and
raped by a cattle buyer.
Critic and author Luke Jennings
was among those who questioned
the need for ?yet more sexual
violence? on stage.
Kevin O?Hare, the Royal Ballet?s
director, defended The Wind, a new
work by choreographer Arthur
Pita. He said the company was
?committed to presenting works
that are thought-provoking, raise
debate and celebrate dance.?
A recent piece in The New York
Times, noting a trend in sexual
violence, said: ?No more gang-rape
scenes in ballets, please.?
did offend. Though it was not my
intention to hurt anyone, I can
see now that altering the image
of her hair was an unbelievably
damaging and hurtful act.
?As an immigrant myself, it
is my duty to be an advocate for
the representation of diversity
of beauty in this industry. I will
demonstrate this in my work even
more going forward.?
Nyong?o, 34, appears on the
front of the UK edition of the
fashion magazine but said
she was ?disappointed? with
the cover. A spokesman for
Grazia said yesterday: ?Grazia
is committed to representing
diversity throughout its pages
and apologises unreservedly to
Lupita Nyong?o.
?Grazia magazine would like to
make it clear that at no point did
they make any editorial request
Lupita Nyong?o in real life and (main
image) how she appeared with hair
cropped out on the cover of ?Grazia?
to the photographer for Lupita
Nyong?o?s hair to be altered on
this week?s cover, nor did we alter
it ourselves.?
Nyong?o, who won a best
supporting actress Oscar for
12 Years A Slave, had posted
?before and after? photos on
social media, telling her followers:
?Disappointed that Grazia UK
edited out and smoothed my hair.?

Human rights struggle to get a
look-in as Duterte sings for Trump
Soldier shot

By Steve Holland
IN MANILA
Donald Trump said he had a ?great
relationship? with his controversial
Philippines counterpart, Rodrigo
Duterte, after they met in Manila.
A White House official said
the issues of human rights was
mentioned only briefly when the
two leaders met on the sidelines of
an Asian summit. A spokesman for
Mr Duterte, who has presided over a
brutal war on drugs allegedly marked
by frequent extrajudicial killings, said
the matter was not discussed at all.
Mr Trump was is in the country
with leaders of 18 other nations for
two days of summits on the ?nal leg
of his tour of Asia, which has been
dominated by the North Korean
nuclear crisis.
?The conversation focused on
Isis, illegal drugs and trade,? said
the White House press secretary,
Sarah Huckabee Sanders. ?Human
rights brie?y came up in the context
of the Philippines? fight against
illegal drugs.?
Mr Duterte?s spokesman, Harry
Roque, said that the President had
explained his anti-drugs policy at
length to Mr Trump, who ?seemed to
be appreciative of his efforts?.
?There was no mention of human
rights, no mention of extra-legal
killings,? he added.
More than 3,900 people have been
killed in a war on drugs that Mr
Duterte declared when he took of?ce
last year. His government says the
police act in self defence, but critics
say executions are taking place with
no accountability.
Mr Duterte sang a Filipino love
song at a gala dinner in Manila,
saying it was on ?the orders? of Mr
Trump. ?Ladies and gentlemen, I
sang uninvited, upon the orders of
the commander-in-chief of the US,?
Mr Duterte said later.
Mr Trump is keen to strengthen
ties with Paci?c Rim allies and strike
bilateral trade agreements. REUTERS
US of?cials have hinted
strongly that when he
returns to Washington DC today,
Mr Trump may announce that
North Korea will be designated a
state sponsor of terrorism.

Nations (Asean)
conference, which

? where leaders extend
their right arm over
their left and shake
the opposite hands of
those next to them.
A ?ummoxed Mr
Trump turned to the
men either side of
him ? Vietnam?s Prime
Minister, Nguyen Xuan
Phuc, and Rodrigo
Duterte, the President
of the Philippines ? to
try get a grip on what
was required. Finally,
he reached the right
way and vigorously
shook the hands of
those beside him, while
pulling a strange face
and laughing.

Prime Minister Shinzo
Abe appeared to roll his

a lengthy handshake,

Downing Street believes that
Myanmar?s treatment of its
Rohingya Muslim minority ?looks
like ethnic cleansing?.
The Prime Minister?s spokesman
repeated calls for Myanmar?s
military to end a campaign of
?inhumane violence? in Rakhine
state, which he said was to blame for
a major humanitarian crisis in the
South-east Asian country.
But in response to questioning,
he stopped short of using the word
?genocide? in relation to the attacks
on Rohingya villages which have
taken place since August, prompting
more than 600,000 people to cross
the border into Bangladesh.
A s ke d w h e t h e r M r s M ay
regarded the situation in northwestern Myanmar as being a case
of genocide, the spokesman added:
?We have been appalled by the
inhumane violence which has taken
place in Rakhine state. It is a major
humanitarian crisis which has been
created by Burma?s military and it
looks like ethnic cleansing.?
Before she was sacked from her
job as International Development
Secretary, the MP Priti Patel called
the treatment of Rohingya Muslims
?systematic ethnic cleansing
in?icted by the Burmese military?.
Despite the British Government?s
comments, leaders of Asian nations
meeting in Manila yesterday skirted
around the mass exodus of Rohingya
Muslims triggered by Myanmar?s
military crackdown, disappointing
human rights groups who were
hoping for a tough stand on the
humanitarian crisis.
A draft of the statement to be
issued after a meeting of Southeast Asian leaders, attended by
US President Donald Trump,
made no mention of the flight of
Rohingya from military operations
in Myanmar?s Rakhine state.
The statement was drawn up by
the Philippines, which currently
chairs the 10-member Association of
South-east Asian Nations (Asean),
which includes Myanmar.
It did not use the term Rohingya
for the persecuted Muslim minority,

YEMEN
Healthcare at
breaking point
in Yemen?s
invisible war
Even if the injured can find medical
help, the costs can be prohibitive. By
Bethan McKernan in Marib, Yemen
E
leven-year-old Jabrah
Jaber Ali Shamla was
asleep when the bullets
started ?ying. Now
accustomed to the routine
of waking her children to ?ee their
village during Houthi rebel attacks,
her mother went to shake her out of
sleep. The girl didn?t respond. In the
dark, she realised her daughter?s
pillow was wet with blood.
Jabrah was still breathing, but
a bullet had passed through the
mud brick wall of the house and
penetrated her skull.
The family drove for ?ve hours
from their village, Mantaba, to get
to the nearest medical facilities in
Marib, the neighbouring province.
When they arrived, of?cials said
Jabrah would not be admitted to
hospital until 2,000 rials (� in fees
were paid for her treatment. They
didn?t have it. By the time a local
doctor stepped in with the money, it
was too late. The little girl died later
the same day.
?We knew she was going to die.
We just wanted it to have been
an easier and better death,? her
brother said in an interview with
The Independent, which gained rare
access to report from inside Yemen
earlier this month.
The general hospital in Marib, the
provincial capital, is the best health
facility in the only province that has
managed to prosper during Yemen?s
war ? yet even in the relatively wellsupplied, government-loyal town,
medical services are cracking under
the strain of war. The building?s
countless bullet holes and damage
to a wall hit by a Houthi rocket are
reminders that both sides have
targeted civilian infrastructure.
Inside, those same bullet holeriddled walls are wet with damp,
and in one corridor a puddle of
an unidenti?ed liquid re?ects the
daylight from a nearby window.
Landmines are killing and
maiming so many that three rooms
at the hospital are now dedicated
prosthetics workshops; in recent
months up to 16 people a week have
been admitted for amputations.
Many of the 120 beds available
are occupied by soldiers injured
Supporters of Houthi forces protest yesterday against the closure of Yemen?s ports by the Saudi-led coalition REUTERS
at the front line ? and every two or
three months, treating troops hurt
in big Houthi offensives takes up
almost all of the doctors? time.
The hospital?s director,
Mohammed al-Qobati, said that
most treatment was provided for
free, but admits that resources and
certain drugs are scarce.
In the courtyard 22-year-old
Rahman al-Subari, sitting in a
wheelchair, was among people
waiting to be seen by staff, for
complications arising from a
traf?c accident. He did not know
how much the visit would cost.
?Sometimes I ?nd a doctor,
sometimes I don?t,? he said.
The cost of prescription drugs
? which cost Mr Subari 2,500 rials
last time ? has also begun to bite
in a country where GDP reached a
record low of �5 a head in2016, and
has only decreased since.
BACKGROUND
Millions face famine as global powers fight proxy war
By Bethan McKernan
Yemen?s internationally backed
government ? which operates
in exile in Riyadh ? relies
heavily on Saudi and
UAE airpower, ground
forces and funding in
its ?ght against both
extremist groups
and the Iran-backed
Houthis, who control
the capital, Sanaa.
On the other side of
the front line, bridges,
roads, homes and hospitals
have been hit in Arab coalition
air strikes since 2015. In some
cases, Western governments can
be accused of making matters
worse. Much of the devastation
has been caused by arms
sold to the kingdom by
allies such as the UK
and US ? a move which
Barack Obama?s
administration
worried could
amount to complicity
in war crimes.
Since the air strikes
began, the UK has sold
more than �6bn of bombs
to Saudi Arabia. Riyadh?s air
and sea blockade on Yemen has
prevented the import of food
and medicine, leaving 7.3 million
facing famine. And the country?s
cholera crisis is now the world?s
worst ever outbreak, with one
million cases expected before the
end of the year.
?My own experience is that we
are in a proxy war,? said Sheik Ali
Abdurabbu al Qadhi, a powerful
leader in Marib province. ?The
US and Europe could pressure
Iran and Saudi Arabia to end
it. The international aspect of
this con?ict has created this,
not Yemenis.?
With the country?s airports
as well as land and sea borders
controlled by neighbouring Saudi
Arabia, unlike the con?ict in Syria,
Yemeni refugees have not ?ed to
Europe in their thousands ? and
journalists are not getting in, either.
Without any overspill of violence
and amid a Saudi media blackout,
the war has remained largely
invisible to the outside world.
Inside Yemen?s borders,
internally displaced persons from
the rest of the country have ?ed
to Marib, a place that is relatively
calm and stable thanks to oil
reserves and the political clout of
its governor, in?uential tribal leader
Sultan al-Aradah.
It is far worse behind the Houthi
front lines. ?[An] environment
of impunity has surrounded and
protected Saudi aggression from
March 2015 until today,? said
Sherine El Taraboulsi-McCarthy,
a researcher at the London-based
Overseas Development Institute.
?The humanitarian situation
is far worse now and likely to be
more protracted; more loss of life,
more frustrated youth ?nding a
safer space in terrorist groups and
more destruction in [sic] Yemen?s
infrastructure.?

the delay was due to concerns over
possible legal action.
The email from Mr Gorman said
the scheduled publishing date of

Wildlife workers and ?shermen

At least two whales were hurt

said Sapto Aji Prabowo, of the
Natural Resource Conservation

the whales were beached.

several metres long and ?opping

Of?cials said rescue efforts

Spain has warned the EU about
a disinformation campaign from
Russia that it says is aimed at
destabilising Catalonia,
Maria Dolores de Cospedal, the
Spanish defence minister, told
reporters that ?many of the actions
come from Russian territory,? but
that was not yet possible to determine
their exact source or if the Russian
government was involved.
She added that some of the
messages had been ?repeated from
Venezuelan territory?.
The Spanish government took full
control of Catalonia by implementing
direct rule and called a snap regional
election for 21 December after the
Catalan government held a banned
independence referendum on
1 October.
Several regional government
ministers have been jailed, and
the region?s ousted leader, Carles
Puigdemont, is in Brussels with four
associates fighting extradition to
Spain for trial. They could face up
to 30 years in prison on charges of
rebellion, sedition and extortion.
Ms De Cospedal declined to guess
what impact the disinformation
might be having on the election
campaign or how big the fake news
campaign might be.
Earlier, referring to a recent
London meeting between
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange
and a prominent Catalan proindependence figure, Spanish
foreign minister Alfonso Dastis said
there were signs that Mr Assange
and others ?are trying to interfere
and manipulate? events during the
ongoing Catalonia crisis.
Spain said last week that the signs
don?t necessarily mean the Russian
government is involved. AP

E
astbourne is probably
not the ?rst place that
comes to mind when
you think of a hotbed
of political activism
and a ?ght against the far right.
Once a thriving Victorian seaside
resort, the sleepy East Sussex
town ? which plays host to a
pier, a bandstand and a Liberal
Democrat MP ? these days has an
all-pervading smell of battered
doughnuts and chips.
It is also home to Eastbourne
Town Football Club, which until
a few years ago was an ordinary
out?t plying its trade in the
ninth tier of the English Football
League. That was before the
arrival of Pier Pressure, a noisy
group of non-league ?ultras? ?
named for their ultra-fanatical,
loud and dramatic support ? with
big political ideas as well as a
passion for football. The group
says that the term ?ultras?, often
associated with violent football
fans in Italy, is used with ?tongue
?rmly in cheek,? as they want the
club to be as inclusive as possible
for all kinds of fans.
?It started when a small group
of mates went down to check out
the Boxing Day derby against
Eastbourne United,? says Maud ?
a 29-year-old man who, like many
others in the group, usually goes
by a nickname. ?They were all
football fans but felt priced out by
Premier League matches. Some
had season tickets for West Ham
and Crystal Palace and others but
just got increasingly disillusioned
and decided to start supporting a
local team instead.?
Pier Pressure has revolutionised
matchday at Town?s leafy home
ground, The Saffrons, not only
by forming an unof?cial singing
section but also by banging drums
and even bringing a saxophonist
to games. It was also a protest
against the hooligan stereotype,
adds Maud, saying: ?We wanted
to show that football should be for
everybody, where everyone feels
welcome and not scared to go, not
worried that they?ll face racist or
homophobic chanting.?
If improvisational sax solos
set them apart from most other
fan groups, so too do their vocal,
anti-fascist politics and keen social
conscience. Inspired by similar
fan movements at several other
lower-league clubs, Pier Pressure
has used the unifying nature of
sporting fandom as the basis of a
local social movement, backing
left-wing political causes.
Sometimes going by another
name (a sister group is named the
Beachy Head Ultras), members
of Pier Pressure have teamed up
with a local housing union to resist
exploitative practices by landlords,
while others campaigned to oust
Eastbourne?s former MP, the
Conservative Caroline Ansell, at
this year?s general election. On
match days, they display banners
with pro-refugee and pro-LGBT
messages, as well as the familiar
two-?ag logo associated with the
anti-fascist movement.
Alongside the self-deprecating
chants which so often characterise
non-league ultra culture (?It?s full
of old people and seagulls/Oh,
Eastbourne Town is wonderful?),
it?s not unusual to hear anti-Tory
songs in Pier Pressure?s section
of The Saffrons. This hasn?t
always sat well with the club?s
older supporters, though by and
large Pier Pressure seems to have
been accepted with a mixture of
encouragement, humour and mild
bemusement by longstanding fans.
?At ?rst, they probably freaked
out, but now they?ve come to like
it,? says Maud?s friend, Balrog,
28. ?We always say hello and have
a little chat. It?s important to be
respectful to them. They can
support in their way and we can
support in our way.?

drum in their ear for 90 minutes,?
says Maud. ?But I remember last
year this old lady asked: ?Have you
got the drums today?? I said we did,
and she said: ?Good for you?.?
Having occasionally found itself
in trouble with the club over its
use of ?ares, smoke bombs and
unsolicited stickers, Pier Pressure
has had to compromise on a few
aspects of the ultras experience.
Mainly, though, the club hierarchy
seems to appreciate that the
group brings something unique
to The Saffrons, and have even
asked members of Pier Pressure
to design match programmes,
maintain the club website and help
out with social media. ?We?ve got
a really good relationship with the
chairman,? says Balrog.
Before a crunch match against
Horsham last year, Town?s
manager, John Lambert, said:
?The fans have really helped us,
especially on the away games. They
create a real party atmosphere and
the players love it.? Town duly won
that game 6-0.
If Pier Pressure has shown itself
willing to get into the non-league
community spirit, it has been more
broadly active in the community.
It raises money for the Kick
Racism Out of Football campaign,
the Eastbourne Foodbank and
other local charities, and holds
collections at home matches.
Given that Eastbourne has
switched between Liberal and
Tory for its entire electoral history,
Pier Pressure?s radical stance
is in one sense a form of local
counterculture. A rebellion against
the prevailing status quo, as well as
the mundanity of ninth-tier football,
its members are non-league
nonconformists displaying punk
credentials with pride.
More than just cultivating
a rebel image, however, Pier
Pressure wants to change things
for the better in Eastbourne.
Having revitalised the atmosphere
at the club and made an effort to
alter the political landscape of the
town, it has shown that a handful of
fans armed with drums, ?ags and a
sax can make a difference.
Brexit, there will be jobs leaving
the UK, no matter what. ?It?s not
me taking them away ? it?s me
directing them to Frankfurt as they
go anyway,? he says.
Pressure is growing on ?nancial
?rms with EU bases in London
to decide when to activate their
Brexit contingency plans. The
main question is how many jobs to
move out of London and where
to move them, as companies
are concerned their ability to
do business across the EU?s
market of 500 million people
may be restricted after the UK
leaves the bloc in March 2019.
So far, Frankfurt is neckand-neck with Dublin in
grabbing business,
according to
consulting ?rm
EY. It says 13
have con?rmed they are moving
staff or operations to Dublin,
compared with 12 for Frankfurt.
Luxembourg is third with six.
Frankfurt Main Finance began
preparing for Brexit before the
vote had even taken place. On the
morning after the referendum,
the group launched its ?Welcome
to Frankfurt? campaign,
complete with call
centre and social
media campaign to
attract bankers.
Mr V鋞h (pictured)
has been visiting London
ever since, promoting
what he describes as
a ?leafy city with
great schools
and a good
quality of life?.
Going against
Frankfurt is the relative lack of
diversity and energy that
a cosmopolitan city like London has
to offer.
In its own sales pitches, Paris has
?aunted its ability to rival London
as a world city, though it suffers
from relatively higher taxes and
stiffer labour laws. Dublin, while
favoured for its use of English, lacks
scale in its ?nancial industry.
The focus on Frankfurt
intensi?ed last month when Lloyd
Blankfein, the chief executive of
US bank Goldman Sachs, hinted
that he could be sending more jobs
there. ?Just left Frankfurt,? he said.
?Great meetings, great weather,
really enjoyed it. Good, because
I?ll be spending a lot more time
there. #Brexit.? AP

alacious and sometimes
controversial details
about Philip Larkin have
emerged from letters and
biographies since his death
in 1985. There have been accusations
of bigotry and a penchant for
pornography. Yet his popularity with
the reading public hasn?t waned.
There?s a reason why he was
voted Britain?s best-loved poet in
a Poetry Book Society survey in
2003, for Larkin was a man for the
big occasion. He wrote about life,
love, sex and death ? and he did so
in a way that ordinary people could
relate to, which explains why he?s
still so often quoted.
Last year, Larkin was given his
own spot in the vaunted Poets?
Corner in Westminster Abbey
with his memorial stone sitting
between those of Anthony Trollope
and Ted Hughes ? who he called
?the Incredible Hulk? and once
memorably described as looking
?like a Christmas present from
Easter Island?.
The Whitsun Weddings author is
now under the spotlight again in a
TV documentary, Philip Larkin by
Andrew Motion, on Sky Arts tonight.
Sir Andrew Motion, a former
Poet Laureate, explores Larkin?s life
and work in what is a candid and
intimate portrait of his friend.
Sir Andrew was an eager young
poet in 1976 when he landed his
?rst job teaching English at Hull
University. ?It wasn?t the only reason
I went to Hull, but I knew Philip
Larkin was there and this gave me
the chance to meet him,? he says
from his home in Baltimore, US.
His hopes were initially dashed.
?I told my new colleagues of my
admiration for him and how much
I?d like to meet him. Well, they just
shook their heads and said: ?Sorry, it?s
not going to happen.? They told me
he hated everybody and particularly
hated the English department.?
It wasn?t until a few months later
that he was taken by a colleague
who knew Larkin to join him for a
lunchtime drink in a nearby pub.
?Philip liked a drink but on this
occasion he took a swig of his beer
and it went down the wrong way.
He whipped off his glasses and got
his handkerchief out, propping
himself up against the bar. Once he?d
recovered we started talking and he
asked me what my father did and I
said he was a brewer and his face lit
up ? I can still see the expression on
his face. So I think as ice-breakers go
that was pretty good.?
I?d
d be almost falling
over with laughter. I?ve
never met anyone who made
me laugh as much as him
Sir Andrew Motion (top) said Philip
Larkin (above) was not always glum
It marked the beginning of a
friendship that continued up until
Larkin?s death, with Sir Andrew
among those granted access to his
inner sanctum.
The popular perception of Larkin
is that of a solitary, curmudgeonly
?gure. But Sir Andrew remembers
him fondly. ?There?s the gloomy
Philip Larkin everyone knows about,
there was the terri?ed Larkin and
the nine-to-?ve Larkin. He had a
reputation for being grumpy and
?erce, someone who didn?t suffer
fools gladly, someone who was shy
and withdrawn. But there was also
the teenage Larkin in his bedroom
with his drum kit and that younger
self never disappeared entirely.?
Sir Andrew says he could also be
incredibly good company. ?We spent
time listening to records and talking
about books and even though we
were very different in a lot of ways
we became very good friends.?
He points out, too, that Larkin
could also be hilariously funny. ?He
was witty and a brilliant mimic and
there were times when I?d be almost
falling over with laughter. I?ve never
met anyone who made me laugh as
much as him.?
Sir Andrew, who has written
an award-winning biography of
Larkin, said: ?He wrote the most
un?inching, melancholy, honest
poems, with the most memorable
phrases about our human condition
that were written in the last quarter
of the last century.
?Time has rocked his personal
reputation but it only con?rms how
good these poems are. They rise
above the ?res that raged in his life
and today they look beautiful and
true, and you can?t ask much more
from poetry than that.?
?Philip Larkin by Andrew Motion? is on
Sky Arts at 9pm tonight

CRITIC?S
CHOICE
GERARD GILBERT
PICK OF THE DAY
===
The A Word
Live International Football:
England vs Brazil
9pm, BBC1
Having come to terms with the
realisation that their son, Joe, is
autistic, Alison and Paul (Lee Ingleby
and Morven Christie, both excellent)
must now advertise the fact to the
world by sending him to a specialist
school in Manchester which is at
least a three-hour round trip from
their Lake District home. The
?ctional Pear Tree Primary is
obviously closely based on a real
special-needs school, and Joe?s ?rst
day, along with Alison and Paul?s
reactions, is beautifully observed.
Less sensitive is granddad Maurice
(Christopher Eccleston, left, with
Christie and Max Vento). ?It?s a
school named after a tree,? he says.
?People are going to join the dots.?
7.30pm, ITV
Since their humiliating home exit in
the last World Cup (losing 7-1 to
Germany), Brazil have regrouped
under new manager Tite and were
the ?rst team to qualify for Russia
2018. They line up against Gareth
Southgate?s injury-ridden, work-inprogress England at Wembley.
===
Jo Brand?s Cats & Kittens
8pm, Channel 5
Internet stars they may be, but
domestic felines seem to play a
distinct second ?ddle in the minds
of TV commissioners with their
endless programmes about dogs,
so here?s a welcome new series in
which Brand follows the work of
RSPCA inspectors and vets looking
after the nation?s moggies.
===
Rick Stein?s Road To Mexico
9pm, BBC2
The second leg of Stein?s culinary
retread of a journey he took as a
21-year-old takes him to Los Angeles
and San Diego. An initial lunch of
clam chowder looks somewhat
abstemious for him, drinks-wise,
which is possibly why his next stop
is the Hitching Post in Santa Barbara
County, the winery made famous
in the ?lm Sideways. Reaching
Hollywood, he discovers that today?s
A-listers subsist on chopped salad,
unlike Charlie Chaplin, who liked to
dine on lamb?s kidney and bacon
washed down with a dry martini.

7.05pm, Film4
(Charles Laughton, 1955)
A man with ?Love? and ?Hate? tattooed

a demonic glint in his eyes, Robert
Mitchum?s Depression-era preacher
(left), who insinuates himself into the
lives of a widow (Shelley Winters)

is one of cinema?s most ruthless,
relentless and chilling villains.
And Charles Laughton?s vivid blend

atmospheric and unsettling.

?MY LUCKIEST SHOT?
Zapped by Spider-Man,
26 October 2012:
Three-year-old Nicholas Tamarin
was brought on a visit to the Oval
Of?ce by his father, White House
aide Nate Tamarin, after going out
trick-or-treating for some early
Halloween fun dressed as
Spider-Man. Obama spent a few
moments with the pair before
saying to the little boy ?Zap me one
more time? and pretending to be
caught in his web.
?The moment itself was lucky,
because you don?t know this sort of
thing is about to happen. But I was
also lucky in how I could quickly
compose it, so I had his re?ection
in the mirror and you can also see
the ?ag in the of?ce on the right.?
P
ete Souza first got to
know Barack Obama
in 2005 after being assigned to cover Illinois?
newly elected Senator
for the Chicago Tribune. He had
years of experience as a newspaper photojournalist, working in
Kosovo and Afghanistan, and had
already served in the White House
during the presidency of Ronald
Reagan. Having earned Obama?s
respect, he was approached to
become the chief of?cial photographer after the 2008 election.
Between 2009 and 2017, Souza
took nearly two million pictures of
President Obama, who says in the
foreword to the photographer?s
new book: ?Over the course of
eight years in the White House,
I probably spent more time with
Pete Souza than with anybody
other than my family.? Obama
adds: ?He became a friend, a con?dant and a brother.?
Souza is ??attered? by this description and says he is proud
of the ?professional relationship? they formed ? though
the 62-year-old admits to
sometimes irritating the
President during card
games they would play
together during long
?ights on Air Force One.
The job was highly
demanding, and not just
because he had to tip-toe around
to ensure he never got in the way
of the VIPs and international
politics he was documenting. ?It?s
non-stop,? he tells i. ?There?s a
grind factor to it ? you?re doing
this every single day and even if
you?re not at the White House or
in the Oval Office, you are paying attention to everything that?s
going on. I had a BlackBerry on
my belt that for eight years never
left my belt or my bedside.?
He saw the personal side of
Obama at his highest and lowest
ebbs, and documented meetings
with Angela Merkel and Vladimir
Putin, David Cameron and the
Queen ? getting exclusive access
that sometimes angered rivals in
the press photography world. The
rise of Instagram and other social
media during also meant Souza?s
pictures were seen by more people than his predecessors could
ever dream of.
Souza shares a similar political
viewpoint to Obama?s Democrats
? his Instagram account shows he
is no fan of Donald Trump - but
the photographer insists he was
not afraid to take un?attering pictures of the 44th President.
He points to his images from
?some really anxious moments
and tense meetings? during the
?nancial crisis, which were later
used in attack ads against Obama
by Republican opponents, and
says the White House team were
keen for his work to remain ?authentic?. Souza adds: ?He could
occasionally be tough when he
needed to be, and I hope that
comes across too.?
However, asked if he would have
ever taken a picture of Obama
eating a bacon sandwich in
an unattractive moment ?
like the photo that haunted
Ed Miliband while he was
Labour leader here in the
UK, Souza says he doubts
it. ?I?d just think that?s a
cheap shot.?
?Obama: An Intimate Portrait?
by Pete Souza (�, Allen
Lane) is out now
He could be tough
when he needed to be
and I hope that comes
across too

?MY FAVOURITE MOMENT?
A snowy break from the Obamacare
?ght, 6 February 2010:
For the ?rst three months of
the year, efforts to reform the
US healthcare system became
the all-out focus? of Obama?s
administration. In the midst of his
legislative battle, Washington DC
was covered in snow, providing a
chance for some family fun.
?This was the biggest snowstorm
that we had had in DC since I had
lived here. I slept in my of?ce the
previous night because I knew I
would not be able to get back to the
White House in the morning ? and I
suspected that the next day, which
was a Saturday, his girls might
come outside at some point. Sasha
and Malia were still young enough
and I didn?t know when the last
time they had seen a snowstorm
like this would have been.
?It was just such a playful scene.
You don?t usually see the President
of the United States playing in the
snow like this, so I would say that?s
probably my favourite moment.
?The girls were seven and 10
when he was elected, still fairly
young. For the ?rst ?ve or six
years he would do a lot of things
with them. But then kids become
teenagers and they want to hang
out with their friends more.?
?THE HARDEST PHOTOGRAPH
FOR ME TO TAKE?
Obama?s worst day,
14 December 2012:
A couple of hours after TV
news channels began reporting
of a shooting at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in Newtown,
Connecticut, Obama?s Homeland
Security Adviser had to tell
the President how many of the
casualties had been children.
?Obama has said publicly that his
worst day in of?ce was the day of
the Sandy Hook shooting. It?s sad
to say that we had several mass
shootings during his presidency,
but I think what was different
about this one was that 20 of the
people that were killed that day
were ?rst graders, six or seven
years old.
?Here, John Brennan is telling
the President about the 20 kids
that were killed, six adults also
? it?s as he?s getting the news.
This, for me, was the hardest
photograph to take. You can see
from his body language that was it
was a very vulnerable moment.
?I think he was thinking about it
not just as President of the United
States but as a parent, and thinking
what it must be like for these 20
families to send your ?rst grader
off to school, like you do every
other day, to a place that we all
consider a safe zone ? our schools ?
and then you never see them again
because some crazy guy shot them
to death point blank.
?I was aware of how sensitive
and personal and dif?cult this
moment was, happening right
in front of me, and yet I was still
trying to compose it just right.
Some people have asked me how I
could have taken a picture during
that awful moment, but you know
what? It?s my job.
?For me, the worst day was two
days later when we actually went
to Newtown and he had to console
all these families privately. He
spent hours talking with and
hugging with people who two days
before had experienced the worst
moment of their life.
?The times that were most
dif?cult were when he was
consoling families after a tragedy,
really private moments, and I
was affected by that. I would be
trying to not intrude but yet still
document for history.
?I would keep an eye on people
to make sure they weren?t
offended that I was there.
?They would be told in advance
that a White House photographer
would be present, that they would
get copies of the pictures, that the
pictures would not be made public,
and I?d say in eight years there were
maybe only three people who asked
that I do not photograph them.?
?MY MOST HISTORIC PHOTO?
The Osama bin Laden raid,
1 May 2011:
When a top secret US Navy Seals
squad was sent to kill Osama bin
Laden inside his compound in
the Pakistani city of Abbottabad,
Pete Souza joined the President
and his National Security team as
they watched a video stream from
the mission.
?I knew a few days before that
something was going on, but I
didn?t know the details. I just knew
that Sunday 1 May was going to be
the day of this mission. Once I went
to the ?rst of the series of meetings
that day, that?s when I learned the
details and knew it was going to
be a very historic day. This was a
guy our country had been trying
to track down since 9/11, for ten
years basically.
?A lot of attention is given to this
one photograph, taken in a small
conference room when they were
monitoring the raid as it happened,
but I took 100 pictures during
those 40 minutes ? and 1,002
pictures in all throughout the day.
What made this one photograph
iconic is that you have the top
national security people shoved
into this room, the most powerful
people in our federal government
? the President, Vice President, the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretary
of State, the Secretary of Defence
and so on ? and yet there?s nothing
they can do.
?They have given their green
light for this mission and now all
they can do is just watch it play
out. They are helpless and I think
that?s why you see this tension and
anxiety on their faces, because
they can?t affect what?s taking
place ? which for them had to be a
somewhat surreal experience.
?It?s up to those 20 to 25 guys
who are on the ground to execute
this mission.
?There were a lot of tense
meetings that day, but this one was
unusual in that there wasn?t a lot
of talking taking place, just a lot of
watching. Occasionally, Admiral
McRaven, who was in Afghanistan
and had put the mission together,
would say something over the
audio feed but for the most part it
was 40 minutes of silence.?
?MY MOST UNDERRATED
PICTURE?
A father, a President,
29 December 2009
On Christmas Day 2009,
Nigerian engineer Umar Farouk
Abdulmutallab tried to blow up a
?ight from Amsterdam to Detroit
using plastic explosive sewn into
his underwear.
Four days later, Obama, on
holiday in Hawaii, holds his
daughter Malia close while waiting
for Denis McDonough [the White
House Chief of Staff] to connect
him to his National Security team
for an update.
?While I was in the White House,
people would ask me what my
favourite image was. But it?s hard
to give an answer to that ? it?s like if
you have ?ve kids and you?re asked
which is your favourite.
?However, this is one of the
pictures that I think is most
overlooked. You see two worlds
collide, where he?s both a family
man and about to get on a
conference call with his National
Security team.
?I thought of it as part of the
narrative that you can do both
things: you can be a dad and you
can be President of the United
States... [but] you?re always on call
and you?re always the President.?

W
hich bit of Brazil
has the highest
concentration of
wildlife in South
America? You?d
be forgiven for guessing it?s the
Amazon, but in fact it?s somewhere not nearly as famous but
every bit as magni?cent: the Pantanal. This is the world?s largest
tropical wetland ? it covers an
area slightly larger than England ? and lies mostly on a huge
floodplain at the foot of Brazil?s
south-western highlands, though
a fraction also spills over into
Bolivia and Paraguay.
In the wet season, from October to April, water washes down
from those highlands, bringing
with it nutrients and ?sh and leaving most of the region underwater. When the rains ?nish, and the
ground dries up, the landscape
changes once again.
Seasonal variation on such a
massive scale means the Pantanal
contains a diverse range of plants
and animals that have adapted to
thrive in standing water or waterlogged soil.
The region is home to more
than 1,000 bird species and 300
mammals including the jaguar,
capybara, giant otter and tapir.
Now, however, the region?s endangered plants and animals,
along with its still undiscovered

The world?s largest wetland is under threat from
hydro-electricity projects which imperil already
endangered plants and animals. By LaurenCrabb
The region?s
endangered plants and
animals may be wiped
out in return for cheap
hydroelectricity
secrets, may be wiped out in return for cheap hydroelectricity.
We are part of a group of researchers investigating the state
of Mato Grosso, where the rush to
build dams is particularly apparent. Mato Grosso holds the upper
reaches of the Pantanal, but is
probably more famous for the
Amazon rainforest in the north
of the state and the enormous
?fazendas? (large farms) on its
fringes which produce soya, beef
and cotton.
This mixture of natural resources and fertile land means
Mato Grosso has a long history of
environmental issues. However,
if the state today is recognised as
a deforestation hotspot, soon it
may be known for its dams. This
is because the height difference
between the rainy plateau in the
north of the state and its southern plains means there is lots of
hydroelectric potential.
Mato Grosso is following a nationwide trend. After a series of
major blackouts in 2001 which
highlighted Brazil?s energy insecurities, the country turned to hydroelectricity. Since then, a wave
of dams have been, or are planned
to be, constructed to satisfy the
increasing demand for energy.
Over the past few years, Brazil?s
growth acceleration programme
has allowed for the increased construction of hydroelectric dams
in the state, while also removing
some environmental laws.
There are already 38 operational hydroelectric plants in the
Paraguay river?s upper basin, the
region that drains into the Pantanal. A further 94 are due to be
built in coming years.
In Brazil, dams are classified
in two categories: those that are
able to produce more than 30MW
of energy, and small hydroelectric
plants with a capacity of less than
30MW. These small plants are
seen as more environmentally
friendly and are commonly constructed as part of a chain along
the length of the river.
In the Amazon, the impacts of
the bigger dams have been well
documented. Fish numbers are
down, and irregular ?oods have
exposed dry land that had previously been submerged.
Less research has been conducted in the Pantanal basin but
the few reports that have investigated dams there report similar
results. Additionally, one larger
dam led to river depth ?uctuating
by several metres over weekly or
even daily periods. Less is currently known about the impacts of the
smaller hydroelectric dams but, as
they still store some water in the
reservoir in order to produce energy at peak times, they also affect
the river?s daily ?uctuations.
What we do know is that too
many dams on the rivers that feed
the Pantanal would disrupt the
natural rhythm of the wetland.
Cattle ranchers, soy farmers and
city dwellers drive a year-round
demand for water and energy,
which would put the seasonal ?ood
?pulse? at risk. In this scenario,
species that have adapted themselves over thousands of years to
life in an on-off wetland may ?nd
themselves thrown out of sync.
Even several small plants
close to each other can produce
new patches of still surface
water, fragmenting ecosystems
and affecting ecological relationships. Meanwhile, those whose
livelihoods are dependent on
these cycles may find they can
no longer survive.
As the impacts of hydroelectric
dams become apparent in the
Amazon, it is crucial that we do
not forget the Pantanal.

Marnie A
? a story
for our
times
A psychological novel, later
a Hitchcock film, was ahead of
its time when written in 1961.
Now it has inspired an opera,
writesClaudia Pritchard
n attractive, able
woman preyed
upon in the office
by two bosses, one
of whom uses his
power to ensnare
her? The story sounds familiar.
But it?s from 1961, and it is that
mysterious synergy between
art and life that has propelled
a new opera, based on a novel
from that year, and several years
in the making, straight into
topical thinking.
Marnie is the latest work by
American composer Nico Muhly,
whose Two Boys for English
National Opera in 2011 delved into
the murky world of chatrooms.
At that time he was approached
by the film and stage director
Michael Mayer, who wanted to
adapt for the operatic stage a
psychological thriller about a
woman on the run.
The novel, which inspired
the 1964 film of the same name
directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was
written and set in Britain, and yet,
that US-set ?lm adaptation apart,
few know of it. And given the
success of the Poldark series, that?s
surprising, because the author
of both is the same, the largely
forgotten Winston Graham.
The film of Marnie was a
bit of a flop for the hitherto
unassailable Hitchcock, but
it fluttered back briefly into
public consciousness last year
when its star, Tippi Hedren,
who had hinted at the director?s
impropriety before, alleged in
a memoir that he had sexually
assaulted her, both mirroring the
?lm?s plot and foreshadowing the
Weinstein affair.
Graham?s novel, advanced for
its time, is about the flight from
all relationships with men of a
woman who has been emotionally
scarred in childhood, and her
entrapment by a boss who uses
as leverage his discovery of her
secret life. Marnie?s cool charm
and of?ce skills land her job after
job with ease. But she steals from
each new workplace, vanishes,
and reinvents herself somewhere
else. Early in her criminal career
she discerns that it is handy to
invent first names similar to
her own, to react quickly when
addressed. Cue Marion, Mary,
Mollie... In pre-internet days, with
the aid of some hair dye and a
new wardrobe, she can disappear
without trace and bob up anew,
time after time.
The operatic potential of a
character who has one internal
and many assumed external voices
is clear, but the opera started with
the libretto by Nicholas Wright,
whose works include Vincent in
Brixton, which won the Olivier
for best new play in 2003, and an
adaptation of Philip Pullman?s His
Dark Materials, for the National
Theatre. Muhly has just been on

Sasha Cooke, who plays Marnie in the ENO production DARIO ACOSTA
Nico Muhly, whose new work is
the operatic version of the novel
?Marnie?; Sean Connery and Tippi
Hedren (above) in the 1964 ?lm
KEYSTONE/GETTY
his own literary project: he has
composed the incidental music
for the new television adaptation
of Howards End.
The first job for Wright and
Muhly was to decide which of
the many set-piece scenes in the
book were essential, and which
to sacri?ce. Out went, despite its
musical possibilities, Marnie?s trip
to the Royal Festival Hall to hear
Brahms, and her occasional trips
to the races, but not her affection
for her horse, Forio, to which
devoted companion she returns
at intervals; thinking about him
prompts, for American soprano
Sasha Cooke in the title role, a
more sentimental way of singing.
?We didn?t know how topical it
would be,? says Cooke of the new
opera. ?We are all Marnie. No one
knows who anyone is ? we change
who we are, even without knowing
it. We carve what we say and don?t
say. We watch Marnie go through
this extreme version of ourselves.
The character is so complex. I
thought it would be a great acting
challenge, and it is.?
This casting coup for the world
premiere in London this month
came with the cancellation by San
Francisco Opera of a production
of Leonard Bernstein?s 1951
opera A Quiet Place. This freed
her up for a return visit to ENO:
she was Mrs Kitty Oppenheimer
in John Adams?s Doctor Atomic
in 2009. Drawing on her own
archive of song, she ?nds parallels
with Debussy?s M閘isande ?
?complicated, a victim, carefree?
? and, when Marnie recalls a
death in the family, Mahler?s griefstricken Das Lied von der Erde.
?It?s so well written,? she says of
Muhly?s music. ?Some composers
don?t realise you can?t have 10 top
As on one page, but Nico asks
what I would like to change, and I
say: ?Nothing!?? With 15 costume
changes, and otherwise rarely
offstage, it?s a big part in a long
opera. ?I have to not drink too
much water before I go on??
Muhly and Wright decided that
a highly symbolic fox hunt must
stay in, a technical challenge
and one that falls under the long
shadow of Janacek?s The Cunning
Little Vixen. ?You are harnessing
the power of everything that
has come before,? agrees Muhly,
who is well known for embracing
many musical styles. He played
his part in staging the hunt by
changing the tempi and rhythm of
the music, starting with the trot,
We are all Marnie?
We watch Marnie go
through this extreme
version of ourselves
speeding up to a canter and then
careering to the gallop. Frequent
fugitive Marnie sides with the fox,
of course. (And in the tradition of
heist stories, we may be inclined to
back her. ?Siding with the villain
is like Don Giovanni,? observes
Cooke. ?He?s despicable, but we
can?t take our eyes off him.?)
To distinguish the leading
characters, including wide-boy
Terry, who was dropped from the
movie, Muhly accorded each their
own instrument in the orchestra
? ?Marnie is the oboe, her boss
Mark the trombone, Terry the
trumpet, and Mark?s mother, Mrs
Rutland [sung by Lesley Garrett]
is the piccolo?. A semi-chorus,
with its own early music sound,
at times adheres to Marnie. ?The
audience is her best friend,? says
Cooke. ?She?s saying: ?What do I
do, guys???
Marnie is Mayer?s ENO debut.
His debut at the Metropolitan
Opera, New York, where Marnie
will be staged next year, set Verdi?s
Rigoletto in 1960s Las Vegas.
Marnie is staying in mid-century
Britain, and the costumes by
Madonna?s designer Arianne
Phillips are, says Cooke ?lined
in silk, bright rich colours with
which Marnie always sticks out in
the crowd?.
As Martyn Brabbins makes
his debut as musical director,
replacingMarkWigglesworthwho
stepped down from a company
that was, he said ?evolving into
something I do not recognise?,
and with chief executive Cressida
Pollock heading for the exit, ENO
needs an original and stabilising
hit. With its vast scale of ambition,
Marnie has the potential to follow
its recent winners, Terry Gilliam?s
Benvenuto Cellini in 2014 and
William Kentridge?s Lulu last year.
Muhly, for whom London is
very much a second home, has
enormous affection for the team
he trusts to bring off big dramatic
challenges like this. ?Marnie plays
to ENO?s strengths,? he says, ?as
an opera where everything is
happening at once.?
?Marnie?, Coliseum, London,
18 November to 3 December (020

here have been plenty
of dramas about the
challenges faced by
second-generation British
Asians, but The Boy with the
Topknot is different. Yes, the lead
character wants to marry his white
British colleague and doesn?t know
how to tell his traditional Sikh
family back in Wolverhampton.
But this is much more than a story
about the cultural dif?culties of an
inter-racial relationship.
At its heart, The Boy with the
Topknot is about coming to terms
with mental illness, shameful
family secrets and the powerful
bonds of parenthood. It?s an
impressive range of emotions to
cover in 90 minutes. Based on
The Times journalist Sathnam
Sanghera?s memoir, it is a comingof-age ?lm of sorts, for a young man
with plenty of swagger who had
already thought he had come of age.
After escaping the clutches of his
illiterate Punjabi family, graduating
with a ?rst from Cambridge and
securing a job on a prestigious
newspaper in London, protagonist
Sathnam (Sacha Dhawan) is forced
to question the foundations of his
existence when he discovers his
father has had schizophrenia for
decades. As a high-?ying journalist
who coaxes secrets from celebrities
for his living, he has to admit the
painful truth: he knows nothing
about his own family.
This was a beautifully done
drama, where everything seemed

spot on, especially Sathnam?s
terraced family home in
Wolverhampton, with its avocado
bathroom suite and mustard yellow

many journalists who can afford
a ?at in central London with a

The casting was superb, with
some stand-out performances
throughout. Lead actor Dhawan?s
emotionally expressive face made
him a believable modern son,
while Sathnam?s mother, played by
Indian actress Deepti Naval, was
the complete opposite. Bound to a
life of marital duty, her strong and
silent stares said much more than
words ever could.

tested formula for ITV, but Gone

new, erm, psychedelic boundaries,
as ?ve celebrities travel around
California sampling cannabis in
various forms.
Linda Robson, Christopher
Biggins, Pam St Clement, John
Fashanu and Bobby George all have
various ailments they hope medical
marijuana may alleviate. It?s similar
to BBC2?s The Real Marigold Hotel,
except the celebrities sleep on a
tour bus ? and eat cannabis-infused
brownies instead of curries.
The best part of this magical
marijuana mystery tour?
EastEnders? Pat Butcher smoking a
bong. Actress St Clement has quite
a trip, trying cannabis at every
turn and rather enjoying it. Former
footballer Fashanu is the complete
opposite. Having never been
drunk in his life, he is disdainful
of drugs. But after a stern talking
to from Pam, he becomes more
adventurous, and agrees to let
marijuana-worshiping nuns
rub non-psychoactive cannabis
ointment into his back.
The series is as much an insight
into wacky backy America as it is
a celebrity show. On their travels,
the ?ve celebs were cooked for
by 94-year-old Nona Marijuana.
Nana Nona cooked with lashings
of cannabis butter, which proved
to be far too potent for actor
Biggins and darts player George.
The two men spent the whole
night throwing up and the whole
party had to evacuate the magical
mystery tour bus.

American Kathy Grif?n delivered
more than two hours of highvelocity bean-spilling with no
interval. She?s a rebel without a
pause.
The Laugh Your Head Off tour is
inspired by the outrage over the
comic being pictured holding a
ketchup-covered Donald Trump
mask. She has now de?antly withdrawn her apology and onstage
offered a chilling account of the
fallout. Grif?n choked back tears
remembering the interrogation
she received over a ?conspiracy to
assassinate the President?.
By comparison the rest of this
epic set felt positively frivolous,
ranging from a Mariah Carey
meltdown tale to a quip about
disgraced comic Louis CK ? ?I
was never attractive enough? ?
to the claim that neighbour Kim
Kardashian misspelt her own
name in the Grif?n visitors? book.
It is said that Katherine Ryan
is the new Joan Rivers, but Ryan
may have to wrestle Grif?n for
the crown. Mouthy? Yes. Vulgar?
Frequently. Unforgettable?

Quiz dissects the whole concept
of the game show and lays it bare
on the intimate Minerva stage.
In doing so, it probes Millionaire?s
most controversial moment, the
conviction of its most high-pro?le
winner for deception in 2003,
and, in true game-show style,
asks the audience whether the
jury got it right.
Major Charles Ingram was given
an 18-month suspended sentence,
after winning the � jackpot. It
was alleged that a series of coughs
from a member of the audience
pointed him to the right answers
? although he has always denied
he cheated. On the ?rst night
the majority found Ingram ?not
guilty? ? for this is a sympathetic
portrayal of his destruction, selfin?icted or otherwise.
As the courtroom spectacle
unfolds we are given lavish
?ashbacks not just to Ingram?s
night in the hot seat and his
preparation for it, but to the
whole history of TV gaming. From
The Price is Right to Bullseye, Quiz
exposes the wonderfully shallow
cardboard pedigree of the genre,
and Keir Charles? pitch-perfect
portrayal of all the great game
show hosts ? not least Millionaire?s
Chris Tarrant ? sets the tone.
Audience participation is fully
embraced. A pub quiz runs in
parallel, where you can win a
complementary ice-cream during
the interval. At times audience
members seemed too engrossed
in their own general knowledge
test to worry about Ingram?s.
Nearly three hours of onstage
action rattles past at speed,
as the boundaries between
reality, artistic conjecture and
entertainment are repeatedly
criss-crossed and blurred.
But this still feels like a work
in development. Some sharper
editing of the opening scenes
and a decluttering of ideas is
needed. If it can achieve that, it
will be heading to the West End
to join Graham?s other successes
currently playing there , Ink and
Labour of Love.

Sterling tumbles amid talk
of rebellion against May
By Ben Woods
The pound has taken a tumble following reports that the Prime Minister is
facing a 40-strong rebellion from her
Conservative backbenchers.
At one point, sterling was down
0.8 per cent against the US dollar at
1.308, with The Sunday Times reporting that a group of Tory MPs had
signed a letter of no-confidence in
Theresa May. It closed down 0.7 per
cent at $1.31 yesterday.
The fresh bout of political uncertainty also weighed on the pound?s
performance versus the euro, where
it dropped 0.6 per cent to �123.
Mrs May?s fragile grip on power,
relying on DUP votes for a Commons
majority, means the Government is
vulnerable to any Tory rebellion.
Neil Wilson, ETX Capital analyst,
said: ?Reports indicating Theresa
May is facing a 40-strong rebellion
from her own backbenchers has traders cautious on the pound?s outlook;
but for now the currency is just about
keeping its head above water.
?The 40 MPs is short of the 48 required to force a vote on her leadership, and with Labour looking strong,
going to the country again is the last
thing most Conservative MPs want.
?Nevertheless, investors are
rightly exercising caution on sterling
given the risks with regards to the
Brexit process,? Mr Wilson added.
The pound remains
around 10 per cent lower
against the dollar since Britain
voted to leave the EU in June
2016, but has been stabilising in
recent months.
?If the market decides the UK cannot meet the EU?s demands in time it
could send the pound sharply lower,
perhaps to $1.25 or below before the
deadline is reached.?
The market reaction comes as Mrs
May gears up to meet business leaders from Europe to discuss the future
of UK-EU trade post-Brexit.
During the event, organised by the
Confederation of British Industry,
she will set out her vision of a ?bold
and deep economic partnership? between the UK and EU in an attempt
to help move the negotiations on to
trade talks.
Hussein Sayed, chief market
strategist at FXTM, says all of
this ?creates much frustration
amongst investors seeking clarity on
Brexit negotiations?.
While the pound suffered during
morning trading, the FTSE 100 Index
Analysts fear sterling could drop to
$1.25 due to Brexit uncertainty
was up 7.4 points to 7,440.31. But it
closed down at 17.18 points at 7,415.18.
David Madden, analyst at CMC
Markets, said: ?The slide in sterling
has helped push the FTSE 100 higher.
It is bene?ting from the pressurised
pound as the chatter of a vote of noconfidence against Prime Minister
May is doing the rounds.?

AND UBER
What is SoftBank, the company
leading investment into Uber?
Headquartered in Tokyo, SoftBank
is one of the fastest growing
companies in the world and the
third-biggest company in Japan.
Its business interests extend to
broadband, e-commerce, internet,
technology and media.
Why is it interested in Uber now?
Uber has had a tough year, dealing
with allegations of a culture of
harrassment and an aggressive
corporate strategy.
with a consortium led by SoftBank,
but SoftBank has yet to con?rm this
or give comment. The deal would
reportedly give the company a stake
of 14 per cent.
What does Uber want to do with
the money?
Investment will help fuel the app?s
global expansion and its expensive
investment in new technology. But
it could also push the company
further towards an initial public
offering, with shares listed on an
exchange. However, to do this,
Uber would have to transform its
corporate structure.
What other companies has SoftBank
invested in?
It paid $3bn (�2bn) for a stake
in coworking company WeWork
in August and acquired the UK
technology ?rm ARM Holdings for
$32bn in 2016. It has a reputation for
catching pro?table businesses early,
established with its most successful
investment ever ? $20m in a
little-known Chinese e-commerce

investment turned into $60bn when
Alibaba went public in 2014.
Is SoftBank de?nitely in?

There has been a huge surge in ?re
safety contracts put out to tender in

sector grapples with the fallout from

More than �0m in contracts to
improve ?re safety have been put up
for grabs since the start of October,
an 803 per cent surge on last year,
according to data from Tussell,
which offers market intelligence on

Contractors, most likely
construction firms, will vie for
the three huge deals. They are:
�8m-worth of work for the Borough
of Tower Hamlets; a �3m contract
from Re:allies, a collaboration of
housing consortiums across the
north; and the Northern Housing
Consortium, with a �0m tender.
The tenders are for ?frameworks?

which the winning bidder will then
probably contract out to specialist
suppliers of services such as
sprinklers and ?re alarms.

Losing EU workers could
cause housing ?catastrophe?
Digital growth
spurt sees jump
in Ladbrokes
Coral revenues
By Joanna Bourke
By Ben Woods
The Mayor of London joined with
the property industry yesterday
to make a last-ditch plea asking
Chancellor Philip Hammond to take
emergency action on housebuilding,
as fears about the impact of Brexit on
recruitment heighten.
Sadiq Khan said ?housebuilders
are increasingly worried? that the
UK?s exit from the EU could make the
capital?s housing crisis worse, with a
number of companies concerned
about access to some 100,000 foreign
construction workers.
He added that losing skilled
workers could be ?catastrophic? for
building plans.
As Mr Hammond prepares for his
22 November Budget, Mr Khan called
for: a devolution of new powers to
London, such as greater control over
public land and allowing councils to
borrow to invest in homes; a massive
increase in government funding for
homebuilding and infrastructure;
and guarantees of the rights of EU
nationals living in London.
The British Property Federation
urged the Government to urgently
make a deal on EU workers? rights
to be here, while the Home Builders
Federation warned reducing the
supply of workers ?could threaten?
future building.
Jon Di-Stefano, chief executive of
Bookmaker Ladbrokes Coral has
seen revenues pick up pace thanks
to a hefty jump in takings from its
digital business.
The FTSE 250 firm said group
net revenue had grown by 3 per cent
for the four months to 29 October,
compared with a 2 per cent fall in the
second quarter. The lion?s share of
the growth came from its digital arm,
with net revenue climbing 12 per cent
as online gaming firm Sportsbook
rose 18 per cent and Gaming net
revenues picked up by 6 per cent.
Jim Mullen, chief executive of
Ladbrokes Coral, said: ?Our digital
performance is strong and the
Ladbrokes brand in Australia and
the Eurobet brand in Italy continue
to post very strong revenue growth.
?In the UK, the Coral and Gala
brands also posted very pleasing
growth, and we continue to transition
our approach to customer acquisition
and retention in Ladbrokes.com to
focus on improved pro?t conversion.
In UK Retail, performance improved
in line with our expectations
primarily driven by the return of all
horse-racing content to our shops.?
George Salmon, equity analyst at
Hargreaves Lansdown, said a trend
for lower revenue from high-street
stores made up in online betting is
consistent with broader gambling
trends. Mr Salmon added: ?Dig a
little deeper however, and one sees
that growth at Coral, plus strong
performances in Italy and Australia,
have masked a weaker showing from
Ladbrokes.com.?
London Mayor Sadiq
Khan also called for
a massive increase in
government funding
for housebuilding PA
Telford Homes, said: ?I am pleased
that the Mayor recognises the
urgency required.? London builder
Mount Anvil also supported the plea.
The building industry is also facing
falling consumer confidence and
?agging prices since the Brexit vote.
Property website Rightmove said
yesterday that more than a third
of homeowners trying to sell their
house have been forced to reduce
their asking price, with the number of
price cuts at their highest level since
2012. In results released yesterday,
homebuilder Taylor Wimpey said
demand for new homes had been
supported by the Govern ment?s
Help to Buy Scheme. Its order book
stands at �2bn, the equivalent of

But even the all too rare moderates

Iceland when favourite bogeyman
Jean-Claude Juncker starts talking
?gures of �0bn or more.
Hardly anyone dares to make a
positive case for payment. But what
the hell, I?ll give it a shot.
To do that I first need to put
another big number before you. It?s
�.4bn and it represents the total
tax contribution of the financial
services industry to the British
exchequer in 2016 as calculated by
PricewaterhouseCoopers for the
City of London Corporation. A more
up to date number is due in a couple
of weeks. To put that number in
context, it represents 11.5 per cent of
the UK exchequer.
Before I embarked on this piece, I
asked the corporation whether any
work had been done on the impact of
a ?no deal? on that number.
The answer I got was no, because
it?s simply too difficult to make a

many variables. Some institutions

parts of their operations. Some might
keep most of them here.

China to build
free-trade ports
South China Morning Post
China is backing mainland
cities that include Shanghai
to build free-trade ports of the
highest international standards,
in a renewal of ambitions to
create Hong Kong-style free
marketplaces. Vice-premier
Wang Yang said these freetrade ports will be positioned
as ?highlands with stronger
radiation effects?, like Hong
Kong, Singapore, Rotterdam
and Dubai.
Green Party to vote
against trade pact
New Zealand Herald
The Green Party will vote
against legislation to bring the
revised Trans-Paci?c Partnership into effect despite Prime
Minister Jacinda Ardern?s assurance it was ?a damned sight
better? than the original. That
will leave Labour reliant on the
National Party to stick to its
pledge to support the legislation
needed to implement the agreement once it is signed.
Importation
regulations relaxed
South Africa Times
Coral posted ?pleasing growth?
be worth it,? was their view on the
bill. They?re entirely correct. The
bill, whatever it ends up at, would be a
single payment, albeit one that could
be spread out over time.
If the City?s tax contribution were
protected, it would effectively pay
for itself, and perhaps within a fairly
short period of time.
By not paying, the UK would be
cutting off its nose to spite its face.
The other reason we should pay
it is because we owe it. It is to cover
the cost of programmes we agreed to
fund, and salaries and pensions we
agreed to pay. To settle our accounts,
as a certain Boris Johnson once said.
Unfortunately, acting in good faith,
and living up to our responsibilities,
will always be alien concepts in
a Westminster in which he is
considered a ?big beast?.
But good faith doesn?t come into
it. We should pay because it is in our
economic and national interest to do
so. THE INDEPENDENT
Zimbabwe has relaxed
regulations barring the
importation of basic
commodities to avert a shortage
of goods ahead of the festive
season. It has reversed a law put
in place by the government to
prevent items such as groceries?
building material and furniture
from entering the country?
which was intended to stimulate
domestic production.
Move to cut VAT
on petrol stalls
The Times of India
The move to get states to cut
VAT on petrol and diesel seems
to have stalled after Gujarat,
Maharashtra, Himachal
Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and
Uttarakhand reduced the tax
last month to ease the burden
of rising global oil prices on
consumers. The states pruned
VAT on fuels after the central
government last month put the
onus on state governments to
shield consumers from a nearly
29 per cent rise in oil prices.

ENERGY
Innogy cuts value of
Npower by ?480m
By Laura Onita
The German energy empire
Innogy yesterday took a
�0m hit on its UK energy
business Npower, a week after
it said it will merge it with rival
SSE?s counterpart.
The company said
it has cut the value
of its British
arm by ?480m
(�4m) as it
faced increased
competition and
a looming energy
price cap proposed
by the Government.
?The competitive
landscape in the UK retail
business remains very tough
and pressure on margins is
very high,? Innogy said, as it
posted results for the nine
months to September.
The move is partly in
response to the Government?s
draft legislation to lower the
cost of energy bills published
last month. Innogy said the
planned tie-up with SSE?s
energy supply business to
form a new company did not
affect yesterday?s decision.
The impairment cut
Npower?s goodwill by
23 per cent, giving
the supplier, which
has five million
UK customers, a
value of ?4bn.
Npower made
a loss before tax
of ?102m compared
with an ?81m loss last
year, plagued by fierce
competition, as smaller
providers increasingly
grab market share
from incumbents.
Deepa Venkateswaran, an
analyst at Bernstein, played
down the effect of today?s
writedown on Npower?s
customers but added that
the deal would mean less
choice for consumers. ?The
Competition and Markets
Authority will have to look at
what is the impact,? she said.
T h e m e rge r b e twe e n
Npower and SSE?s supply arm
will see the number of energy
giants shrink from six to ?ve,
giving it the chance to cut
costs. The merged firm will
have 11.5 million customers.
The Unite union warned
that the deal is ?for the sole
benefit of shareholders,
with scant concern for the
workforce and the consumer?.

The average two-year

?Less than two weeks

Place the enamel pan on the hob and
heat the oil over a medium heat.
Then, add the onions and cook until
translucent. Add the spices, bay leaves
and jam, then stir as it cooks for 1-2
minutes until it forms a paste.
Add the chutney, breadcrumbs and
lamb. Stir to break up the mince and
prevent lumps forming. If required, add
a little water to stop the meat sticking.
Cook for 20 minutes, or until the meat is
cooked through and evenly coloured.
Meanwhile, to make the sambals,
simply mix the banana ingredients in
one bowl and the tomato and onion
ingredients in another.
Season the bobotie to taste,
smooth over the bottom of the pan and
pour the egg foam over the top. Place
under the grill until the egg topping is
golden brown. Serve the bobotie with
the sambals.

Worcester could
bring luck for one
young hopeful
By Jon Freeman
RACING EDITOR
Money can?t buy you love and any
amount of it doesn?t guarantee you
a good horse, either.
There are bargains to be had out
there, but for every Gold Cup or
Grand National winner bought for
a song down the years, there have
been countless costly ?ops.
Even so, you would imagine that
one of the pricey point-to-point
purchases Onefortheroadtom
( � 1 0 0,0 0 0 ) a n d S o m e M a n
(�5,000) will be good enough to
win the novice hurdle at Worcester
this afternoon.
Onefortheroadtom made a first
small repayment on owner J.P. McManus?s investment by scrambling
home on his hurdling debut at Exeter.
That formlooksOK?therunner-up
had won previously and the third has
won since ? but, more importantly, it
was a performance full of promise.
Trainer Harry Fry is in no rush with
the grey and is happy now to take this
next small step up the ladder.

that the gelding might be clamped

seems fair for such a convincing display and the champion trainer looks
to have found him another good opportunity in the Molson Coors Handicap Hurdle at Huntingdon.

?I was OK with the

knee surgery...
since 2009 I?ve
been at peace?
Roger Federer
celebrates his
victory over Jack
Sock at the ATP
Finals GETTY
Federer accepts curtain?s about to fall on his glittering career. By Matt Majendie
R
oger Federer sashays
through the corridors
of the O2 Arena every
bit the returning king. A
year on from missing the
ATP World Tour Finals following
knee surgery, he is back at the event
for the 15th time, his every move
scrutinised as he swaggers from one
interview to the next.
It wavers from the sublime
? describing in one television
interview the ?beautiful? nature of
his remarkable season at the age of
36 ? to the ridiculous, of reading out
cockney rhyming slang to camera.
?Blimey mate, I?m Hank Marvin?
and, ?I can?t believe my mince
pies? have rarely been delivered
so suavely ? seemingly no request
too much for the 19-time Grand
Slam winner. The delight of being
in London seems genuine, as is
being back at the top of his game,
following surgery on the meniscus
he tore while running a bath for his
twin daughters, a faltering return
and then six months of additional
rehabilitation.
?The moment I went into surgery
was scary because I?d never had
surgery before,? Federer says. ?The
moment I woke up from surgery, I
didn?t know if I was ever going to
come back from this.?
At the time, Federer?s mindset
was ?let?s hope for the best? but he
also allowed himself to be at peace
knowing the most successful career
in tennis history was likely to be

great to be in a tennis hotspot. It?s
very important for the men?s game
that we are actually not somewhere
where tennis is irrelevant.?
How long Federer remains
relevant in the men?s game is
another matter. He would love to
take the Grand Slam tally to 20.
But he is no longer bothered by the
sense he must bow out at the top,
at the same time as having no idea
when it will all end. ?I gave up a long
time ago caring about rankings and
how I go out, what people think and
what?s right and what?s wrong,? he
says. ?Now, it?s just going out to play.
I don?t want to think about the end,
I just want to take it a year at a time
and then if it?s over that?s it.?
For now, he is simply immersed
in the 2017 fairy tale, and victory on
Sunday would be the ultimate fairy
tale ?nale. ?But fairy tales don?t
always play out like that do they?? he
says. ?All I see is my next opponent
and hope to ?nish strong. I feel I
can do it. Will I do it? I don?t know.?
Dimitrov puts
down marker
with victory
over Thiem
By Tom Allnutt
AT THE 02 ARENA, LONDON
Grigor Dimitrov overcame a bout
of beginner?s nerves to mark his
ATP Finals debut with a three-set
win over Dominic Thiem.
Dimitrov surrendered a one-set
lead at London?s O2 Arena and
then needed two chances to serve
for victory in the decider before
edging past the talented Thiem
6-3, 5-7, 7-5.
With Andy Murray injured,
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
are the stand-out attractions at
this week?s tournament but few
contests are likely to be as entertaining as this one, lasting two
hours and 19 minutes. Dimitrov
could even be a dark horse to top
the group featuring Nadal.
To do so, he will have to calm
his nerves. The 26-year-old is the
?rst Bulgarian quali?er here in the
competition?s 48-year history and
he admitted on court that he had
struggled to handle the pressure.
?I?m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous in my ?rst match out
here,? Dimitrov said. ?It?s not the
same as practising on this court ?
you feel the weight on your shoulders, in a positive way of course.
I?m just very grateful to win in that
manner. It?s not easy playing here
for the ?rst time.?
Ranked a career-high No 6 in
the world, Dimitrov took a break
midway through the opening set
and served out, but Thiem levelled
when his opponent wavered at the
end of the second.
A shanked forehand wide gave
Thiem a set-clinching break at 6-5
but Dimitrov again pulled ahead in
the third, when a drop-volley gave
him a break for 4-3.
Serving for the match at 5-4,
however, he wobbled again as
a framed backhand beyond the
baseline allowed Thiem a reprieve.
But the Austrian failed to
consolidate as two consecutive
double faults gave Dimitrov a 6-5
advantage and a second chance to
serve out and he clinched victory
on his third match point.

RUGBY UNION
Stuttering victory leaves Jones
talking up merits of winning ?dirty?
By Hugh Godwin
RUGBY UNION CORRESPONDENT
The hangover from a stuttering win
over Argentina had England?s head
coach Eddie Jones discussing the
merits of ?winning dirty? yesterday,
while Danny Care, the scrum-half
who is one of the red rose?s most naturally effervescent attackers, was
ironically the man to remind critics
that ?we?re not there to entertain ?
we?re there to get victories?.
Australia are next for England
at Twickenham, this Saturday, and
the Wallabies are likely to be facing Jonny May, the Premiership?s
leading try scorer this season, who
is ?t again after a hamstring injury.
Anthony Watson or Elliot Daly could
move to full-back, if Mike Brown
fails to recover from concussion,
and Jones said of May: ?He is a quality player and has genuine gas. If
he plays on Saturday he will be the
quickest player out there, which
means that if he gets an opportunity
to use his pace he will score a try.?
So that was one promise of
vivacity, with memories still raw
of Twickenham-ites and media
types grumbling through last weekend?s 21-8 win over Argentina, who
missed 14 points in kicks, although
Jones responded that England had
butchered two tries and could have
been 35-3 up with ?ve minutes left.
The much-shared Sky TV deskcamera footage of Jones screaming ?how f**king stupid are we?? at
Sam Underhill?s concession of a soft, bench, in the 20 wins out of 21 under

Taylor races to fix leaks
in time for All Blacks visit
By Duncan Smith
mal intent on day one, when you get
the best of the conditions, is not trying to win the Test. That backed us
into a bit of a corner with the game
taking a slow path ? we had to bat big
in that ?rst innings and get ahead and
roll the dice that we could get 10 wickets and not have to bat again. It wasn?t
the way we wanted to play the game.?
Mott, however, said it was to England?s credit that they ?did what they
had to? by dead-batting in the second
innings after Ellyse Perry shut the
door on England with her 213 not out.
The Australian was also scathing
of the pitch in Sydney, describing it
as ?lifeless? and a major contributing
factor to a limp ?nal day.
It was one thing his opposite
number, Mark Robinson, agreed on.
The England coach was livid that the
slow surface did not allow for a more
dynamic spectacle. EVENING STANDARD
Defence coach Matt Taylor fronted
up yesterday to express con?dence
that Scotland will make the necessary improvements for the visit of
world champions New Zealand to
Murray?eld on Saturday. The 44-38
win over Samoa in the first Test of
the autumn series on Saturday was
marred by the concession of ?ve tries
? Scotland scored six ? to spark worried speculation about what the All
Blacks would do against a similarly
leaky rearguard.
Taylor expressed disappointment
with the defensive display. Stuart Hogg said he expected Gregor
Townsend?s assistant to ?unleash
hell? and Taylor (right) hinted
that some strong words had
been forthcoming. ?I was happy
that we won but any time, particularly when I?m in charge
of defence, and you are losing ?ve tries at Murray?eld, you are not
going to be happy,?
he said.
?I was disap pointed knowing
who want the ball in their hands with
a quick ruck speed.?
By name-checking all England?s
possible midfielders, Care was
not indicating for certain whether
Farrell and forward Maro Itoje
would be recalled this week; neither
did Jones, who stayed out of sledging
mode and instead praised his Australia counterpart, Michael Cheika,
for his work at the 2015 World Cup,
when the Wallabies were runnersup, and again since England beat
them four times out of four in 2016.
?He?s rebuilt that side twice now,
which is a fair effort and he?s done a
great job,? Jones said. ?
To me, rugby is a game that can be
played beautifully badly, or you can
play beautifully well. I don?t mind
winning dirty. We?ve always said
up front that we base our game on
defence and set piece, they are the
pillars of our game. But that won?t
make you the number-one team in
the world because you also have to
score points.?
Care admitted Jones?s outburst
had reminded him of being similarly
castigated by a previous England
boss, Martin Johnson, during a
match in Ireland in 2009.
But while Jones wanted to take
full responsibility for last weekend?s shortcomings, the scrum-half
said: ?The players are looking at
ourselves and what we can do better ? and there are loads of things.

WEST HAM UNITED
Pearce calls for unity to get
the Hammers out of a hole
By Jim van Wijk
West Ham?s ?ght to climb the
Premier League table can be
achieved if everyone unites, says
new assistant manager Stuart
Pearce. The former England
defender (below), who made 50
appearances for the Hammers
late in his career, has joined
Alan Irvine on the coaching staff
under David Moyes, appointed
last week following the
departure of Slaven Bilic.
The Irons are third-bottom
in the League and return
to action at Watford on
Sunday. West Ham have
several players away on
international duty, so
Moyes will not get the
chance to work with
the whole ?rst team
squad until later in
the week. Pearce is
convinced the talent
is there. ?David is
acutely aware, as we all are, of
exactly where the club are at this
moment in time,? Pearce said.
?It?s not going to be easy, no
one is expecting it to be, because
the stakes are very high in the
Premier League, but I think with
the staff here and the squad of
players, we have a great chance.
?The main thing is to enhance
the togetherness at the club.
I have watched West Ham a
lot from the outside. Because
it?s one of my former clubs, I
probably keep a closer eye on
things. I?ve seen a lot of them
this season and it is clear that
everyone needs galvanizing.

Ireland urged to ?create
history? against Denmark
By Miguel Delaney
IN DUBLIN
Martin O?Neill has called on his
Republic of Ireland players to ?create
their own history? and qualify for the
nation?s ?rst World Cup since 2002.
The Irish face Denmark in the second
leg of their play-off at the Aviva Stadium tonight and, although the dreary
0-0 ?rst leg in Copenhagen re?ected
some of the side?s technical de?ciencies as they again struggled to score,
the manager felt they also displayed
the de?ance that has taken them so
far and through so much adversity.
O?Neill stressed that Ireland will
probably need to score two goals because he believes Denmark will not
fail to score for the entire 180 minutes
of the tie. An away goal would put the
Danes through in the event of a draw,
but O?Neill believes his players will
?nd a way. He also stated that quali?cation would surpass the run to the
last 16 in the expanded Euro 2016.
?I think they?ve realised, the great
experience of the Euros ? that was
fantastic that evening as we mentioned against Bosnia [whom Ireland
beat in a play-off to reach the ?nals]. I
think the players here ? some of them
who didn?t experience that ? want to
create their own history if they can.
That would be lovely if they can.?
In the fallout from the ?rst leg, Denmark become the latest opponents to
praise the ?ght of the Irish, despite
some implicit criticisms of their defensive approach, and O?Neill said
that combative spirit is something
inherent which has been maximised
by the squad. He talked about how
the struggle to score had brought it
out even more. ?I would hope that it is
something that is innate in the country,? O?Neill said.
?I think the players have fantastic
spirit. I think it?s important to have
that. The side is made up of certain
components and this is a very strong
element of it. It shouldn?t be everything in our side because eventually,
as well as spirit, we need to be able to
try and play as well, too. I think that

(right) won 21 caps for
Ireland and played

meaning the news has affected the
manager even more. The Ireland
boss highlighted a brilliant goalscoring performance by Miller
in a 2-0 win over Lyon in 2003.
?He played wonderfully well in a
Champions League game one

was outstanding.

Heading for the exit?
IN BASEL
Meyler
Oliver Norwood hopes Northern
Ireland?s valiant display in
Switzerland will persuade their
manager, Michael O?Neill, to
remain at the helm.
O?Neill will take time to consider
his future after his team came
up just short in their World Cup
play-off with the Swiss, when a
contentious penalty decision in
the ?rst leg ended their hopes
of reaching back-to-back major
tournaments for the ?rst time in
their history.
It felt like the end of an era in
Basel, where at least four veteran
players ? Aaron Hughes, Gareth
McAuley, Chris Brunt and Jamie
Ward ? may have pulled on the
green jersey for the ?nal time.
They were among the ?rst
O?Neill consoled at full-time, though
his own time may have reached its
conclusion, three years before his
Northern Ireland contract expires.
The 48-year-old is unlikely to be
short of suitors. The Edinburghbased boss ?ts the bill for Scotland,
while vacancies with Sunderland
and the United States, where
O?Neill spent part of his playing
career, may also be alluring.
However, 26-year-old Norwood is
banking on O?Neill being convinced
that there is still more to come after
Northern Ireland?s performance at
St Jakob-Park.
?We spoke about making

we did that,? said the mid?elder,

ago, Paulinho was presented to
around 2,000 nonplussed Barcelona
fans at an almost empty Nou Camp.
There were reports that not a single
Paulinho shirt had been sold in the
club shop on the day of his unveiling.
Having arrived in a ?urry of
negative brie?ngs, just as his
international team-mate Neymar
was leaving for Paris Saint-Germain,
Paulinho?s transfer ?tted neatly into
a wider tale of Barcelona decay and
crisis heightened by the terrorist
attacks on the city that would occur
a few hours later. It was, as Paulinho
would later admit, ?a special day, but
in the end a sad one?.
It is easy to forget that his

Yet as Tottenham?s season

was a completely different player. A

humiliating World Cup with Brazil
had taken a mental and physical
toll, leaving him short on con?dence
and without a proper pre-season to
get back to peak physical condition.
Paulinho played just 14 per cent of
Spurs? Premier League minutes
that season.
By all accounts, though, he
proved to be one of the Chinese
Super League?s shrewdest
signings. He scored some superb
goals, trained well, and picked up
two Super League titles and an
Asian Champions League before
Barcelona made their enquiry. It
was a game-changing transfer. Why
did Barcelona want Paulinho?
Perhaps because there are
surprisingly few players like
him. Paulinho?s tireless
energy, clever late runs
into the box and
physical threat
give him a
rare skill pro?le. ?He gives us a lot
on a defensive level because he?s
so strong,? said team-mate Denis
Suarez. ?Going forward, he adds a
lot because he makes those runs into
the box. And then he?s an animal at
set plays, he?s incredible.?
Although he has not been a
regular starter, Paulinho has
quietly become a vital cog in
the Barcelona machine. He has
bene?ted more than most from the
family atmosphere created by new
coach Ernesto Valverde, and has
been restored to the national team,
reuniting with his former manager
at Corinthians, Tite. A stunning
hat-trick in the 4-1 thumping of
Uruguay in March was the highlight
of the qualifying campaign.
Paulinho?s return to England
provides an opportunity to
re-examine one of those players who
may never earn star billing but who
makes everything tick along a little
more smoothly: a decent ?nisher, a
surprisingly tenacious tackler, an
underrated aerial threat, a tireless
runner. A rather English-style
player, in fact. Perhaps the biggest
irony is England is the country
that probably remains
the most resistant to
Paulinho?s charms. THE

Jones apologises for swearing after ticking-off from mother, 93
By Hugh Godwin
Sport
14.11.17
England rugby coach Eddie Jones
has apologised for swearing in public after being given a long-distance
telling-off by his mother, Nellie.
Jones (right) was seen on television using the F-word twice after
England flanker Sam Underhill
conceded a soft penalty during Saturday?s scrappy 21-8 win over Argentina at Twickenham.
?I?d like to apologise for swearing
in public,? Jones said yesterday. ?It?s
not acceptable, and I?ll ?nd a different way to express my frustration in the future.
?Usually I am pretty
good. But I got a phone
call this morning from
my mother, who?s 93, from
Australia and she said
?please don?t swear?. So I am
in the doghouse and certainly
won?t do it again. I think everyone
was a bit frustrated on Saturday
and I was one of them. I should have
shown more self-control.?
Jones refused to confirm
whether or not he would recall the rested pair of Owen
Farrell and Maro Itoje to
face Australia on Saturday.
?They want to play, they
think they?re ready to play,
but there?s always a balancing act. I was employed to win
the World Cup [in 2019] and that is
what I?m intending to do. Do I put too
much focus on that? That is what I?m
employed to do.?
Farrell and Itoje were included
among World Rugby?s ?ve nominees
as men?s world player of the year yesterday, for the second year in a row.
The Saracens stars were joined by
the 2016 winner, All Blacks ?y-half
Beauden Barrett, plus Australia fullback Israel Folau and New Zealand
wing Rieko Ioane.

interview: ?I?ll
be fine when
my career ends?
Gareth Southgate has warned his
young England team that the priority at Wembley tonight is to beat Neymar & Co, not collect their shirts.
The ?xture against Brazil offers
England?s youth an opportunity to
make souvenirs of some of the most
coveted jerseys in the world, led by
the most expensive in Neymar.
After the encouraging draw
against Germany last week, Southgate has urged his players to make
a statement by taking the game to
Brazil, not deferring to reputation.
?I?ve got a wardrobe full of shirts
at home and I think they?re all fullbacks, because it wasn?t high on my
list of priorities to go and swap,?
Southgate said. ?By the
way, there are a load
of full-backs saying
?I?ve got f **king
Gareth Southgate?s shirt?, so
I accept that
works both ways.
?I used to talk to
young players about this at Middlesbrough. I remember young David
Wheater. I pulled him over the coals
because he bowled off with
Thierry Henry?s shirt after a
game and I said, ?right, OK,
where do you think that
leaves you when you play
him again next time??
?You are either going
toe to toe with these guys
or we are just here for the
tour. That?s how I always
felt managing against Sir
Alex [Ferguson], Jose
[Mourinho] and all of those guys.
The manager sets the tone.
?I?m not sitting here saying, ?how
wonderful we are playing Brazil,
what a great experience for me?.
It?s ?how do we set the team up to
be successful???
England will be led by Eric Dier
for the second successive match.
?It?s good experience for him. He has
good tactical understanding on the
?eld and is a good sounding board
for me as the coach,? Southgate said.
