UK’S BREXIT WARNING TO EU
WE COULD KEEP
DIVORCE PAYOFF
Davis threat after Irish border clash
BRITAIN will refuse to pay
its multi-billion-pound Brexit
divorce bill until Brussels
backs down over Northern
Ireland’s border, David Davis
has reportedly warned.

Political Editor and CHLOE MAYER
could ever agree to that because it
would threaten the UK’s constitutional integrity.
She said she would be making her
opposition to it “crystal clear”.
Mr Davis’s letter was reportedly
issued just hours later.
He vowed that Britain would not
finalise payments to the EU until
“all the issues” of concern to Britain
had been addressed, according to
The Times.
He is said to have added that the
Government would refuse to allow
the European Commission to give
the bloc’s highest court the power to
rule on Brexit disputes.
And he said the Government
would not accept punitive sanctions
from Brussels for breaching the
terms of a planned transition deal.
The Brexit minister is said to
have written a hard-hitting
letter to Tory MPs telling them
the UK will not hand over
cash unless the Government gets its way.
It comes after the EU
enraged Theresa May yesterday by suggesting Northern
Ireland could remain in the
customs union, effectively
creating a new border in
the Irish Sea.
Mrs May insisted no PM
On the attack . . . Davis
THERESA May was accused of
a
“capitulation”
yesterday
after saying EU migrants coming in a Brexit transition —
around a million are expected
— could stay for life.
MigrationWatch said it was a
U-turn by the PM on an earlier
position and would “lead to
a scale of immigration the
electorate voted against”.
SIR John Major has sparked uproar
with a call for Theresa May’s MPs to
rise up against her final Brexit deal.
The ex-PM demanded she give
Tory MPs and ministers a free vote.
If she refuses, Sir John implored
them to vote “with their conscience”
during the Commons showdown this
autumn — a thinly-veiled call on
them to rebel against her.
He also issued a withering attack
on Mrs May’s EU negotiations,
branding her red lines “unrealistic”
By TOM NEWTON DUNN
and “bad politics” which had “boxed
the Government into a corner”.
Downing Street refused to publicly
criticise Sir John, right, saying he was
“perfectly entitled” to air his views.
But a senior No10 source described
his challenge to Mrs May’s authority
as “quite extraordinary”, while
Iain Duncan Smith called it
“weak and tendentious”.

SUPERSTAR Ed Sheeran is having a private

A DOG walker died
yesterday as he tried
to rescue his pet from
a frozen lake.
The man, in his 60s,
was pulled from the
water
in
Welling,
South East London.
Police said the death
in hospital later is
being
treated
as
“unexplained”.
He is the fifth victim
of the Beast from the
East after four people
died in two crashes in
Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire on Tuesday.
Another animal lover
was lucky to be alive
after she went into
freezing water to save
her dog in Ashford.
She needed checking
over by paramedics.
Kent Fire and Rescue urged people to
“not try be a hero”
and call the emergency
services instead.
A TRAIN
used to de-ice
the
tracks
broke
down yesterday — and
was left stranded in snow.
It came to a halt at Wye in
Kent as it headed for Ashford.
Southeastern, which axed 141
services yesterday, apologised
for the inconvenience.
But one exasperated commuter said on Twitter:
“Hilarious, you couldn’t
make this

HEALTH chiefs fuelled
panic-buying by urging

or essential supplies
such as medicines?”

Experts say the freeze could cost
the economy £2.5billion each day it

with staff unable to get to work or
forced to stay home to care for kids.

Last night News UK,

It added: “We have

August 1958.
West Indian homes were

nights and black passers-by
savagely assaulted.
On September 4, amid continuing riots, the Daily Sketch
published a photograph of
Max and his older brother
Alexander in Notting Hill.
The knuckle of one of grimfaced Max’s fists appears to
be cut while his other fist
bears a sticking plaster.
Mosley solicitors took legal
action against the Sketch over
suggestions the pair fought
alongside the teddy boys.
The next day, the Kensington News told how “Kill the
N*****s” had been shouted
from the crowd.
An earlier picture from May
1958 shows Max caught up in
a thuggish struggle with an
opponent at a by-election rally
in Islington North.
His left arm is extended
towards the face of his
enemy, who is being held
around the head by Alexander.
Later, on July 31 1962,
Oswald and his neo-fascists
marched in the Jewish quarter
in Hackney, East London,
chanting “Jews Out”.
Oswald was floored in the
ensuing race riot and Max
was among dozens arrested.
He was charged with threatening behaviour, but acquitted
at magistrates’ court the next
day when he argued he was
simply defending his father.

MAX Mosley’s crusade to
tame newspapers was triggered when his lust for
sadomasochistic sex with
five prostitutes was exposed.
The now defunct News of

But he won a landmark

But he ruled in favour of

Mosley put his name to a leaflet
supporting racism and urging the
Government to “send coloured
immigrants home”.
The mogul aligned himself with
his father Sir Oswald’s fascist
Union Movement and supported
one parliamentary candidate.
His name appears on a four-page
document
alleging
immigrants
brought “leprosy, syphilis and TB”.
It claims: “Coloured immigration
threatens your children’s health.”
Mosley himself is reported as
calling for a “law to send immigrants back” while campaigning
for Walter Hesketh in a by-election
in Manchester, we can reveal.
In a local newspaper article from
November 1 1961, less than a week
before the vote, Mosley told report-
ers immigrants would be “sent
home”. He said: “A law to send
them all back where they came
from — that’s what we would advocate. You wouldn’t call it deportation, they would just be told to go.”
The article raises further questions about Mosley not knowing
about racist pamphlets as they are
directly referred to in the piece.
Previously asked about the leaflet, which until now has remained
in archives in Salford, Mosley told
a court he had no memory of it.
He added that it was “nonsense”
to suggest he had distributed such
material.
During an interview with Channel 4 News on Tuesday Mosley did
accept that the connotations in the
leaflet — “if genuine” — were racist.

“victims” wore striped pyjamas they were not necessarily Nazi-related clothes.
And Mosley, right. blamed
his hearing aids when he
said he had not heard one
of the hookers allegedly cry
out on the orgy footage:
“We are the Aryan race —
blondes.”
The
judge
ruled
the
remark was “unscripted and
occurred amid a good deal
of shouts and squeals (of
delight or otherwise)” and
was not therefore Nazirelated. Mr Justice Eady
concluded: “Beatings, humiliation and the infliction
of pain are inherent to
S&M activities.
“So, too, is the enactment
of domination, restraints,
punishment and prison scenarios. Behaviour of this
kind, in itself . . . does not
entail Nazism.”

millions
into

to bankroll new press regulator Impress through a

The son of a Manchester cop, he fought
the 1961 Moss Side
by-election on immigration and housing.
That October, the dad
of three told a newspaper that “coloured
people” who came to
the UK after 1945
“should be sent home”.
He came last in the
vote won by the Tories.
Wife Margaret stood
in the local city elections in 1962, also representing the Union
Movement. In 2008,
Mosley described Hesketh as “nice enough”.
MAX Mosley’s fascist father Sir Oswald
retired from politics in 1966 but his racist
ideology lives on in Britain.
Young Max was a leading figure in his
dad’s far right Union Movement as a propagandist, public speaker, agent, proposed
parliamentary candidate and legal adviser.
He claims any former links are no longer
relevant as his views and society have
changed in the half a century since.
But the legacy remains after the torch
was carried by the far-Right fanatics of
the National Front and National Action.
The same hate and bigotry filled the
heart of Thomas Mair, right, who
shouted “death to traitors, freedom for
Britain” after being charged with the
gun and knife murder of MP Jo Cox, 41, in
2016. National Action adopted Mair’s slogan
and its founder cited Sir Oswald as their
inspiration. The group copied his Union
Movement symbol for their insignia.
In his book on the revival of postwar UK fascism, Very Deeply Dyed in
Black, Graham Macklin said the
Union Movement transmitted “malignant . . . political and cultural idioms .
. . to a new generation of activists”.

THE
SAYS
Bin Barnier
IT should be clear to everyone, including the
27 other EU nations, that Michel Barnier
must be fired as Brussels’ chief negotiator.
His destructive games are the biggest
threat to a deal. He is putting jobs at
risk across Britain and the Continent.
We are endlessly told by Brussels, and
by sneering Remainers, that our
Government’s positions are impossible.
But Barnier’s are far more unworkable.
Theresa May cannot possibly let
Northern Ireland stay in the customs
union and be split from the UK. And
not just because the DUP wouldn’t
stand for it. Why did Barnier try it on?
We have long held he is stalling to stoke
panic here as the clock ticks. Witness
him urging us to “pick up the pace” right
after chucking a spanner in the works.
He is emboldened by the likes of Keir
Starmer and Anna Soubry visiting him
in Brussels. And by europhile zealots
such as John Major — whose tired, vacuous, relentlessly damaging whinge of a
speech yesterday was beneath him.
They are doing immense harm and
undermining the Prime Minister’s
negotiating strength by trying to rewrite
Britain’s red lines.
Brexit means leaving the single market, customs union and ECJ jurisdiction.
It means honouring the referendum,
not holding a replay. Get used to it. It’s
just Brexit. It’s not hard.
That goes for Brussels too. Negotiate
constructively and in good faith or a
deal will not be done. That’s bad for us
and for you. Your citizens will judge
whether you did your best for them.
Barnier is fixated on his own powerplays. It’s time to find someone else.
To our Government, The Sun says this:
You need a rapid solution to the Irish
border problem. Let’s hear it.
Mosley stench
IF Max Mosley’s money is suddenly too
tainted for Labour, the party must give to
charity every penny it has already taken.
That means the fortune which deputy
leader Tom Watson has been handed to
be the former F1 chief’s Westminster
stooge during his self-obsessed revenge
campaign against newspapers.
What possible case does Labour have
for keeping any funding from this shifty
former racist?
How can Watson defend his vomitinducing remark that he was “proud to
call Max Mosley a friend” and
“delighted” he donated to Labour?
He would demand a General Election
if a senior Tory was bankrolled by a
man who published leaflets calling for
“coloured immigrants” to be “sent
home” because they give kids diseases.
And who is now being probed by police.
Our Government should waste no
time before stripping the Royal Charter
from
Mosley’s
“media
regulator”
Impress — that redundant talking-shop
for Press-haters.
To avoid being labelled a monstrous
hypocrite, Watson must disown Mosley
and apologise for their association.
We won’t hold our breath.

psychosis
Skunk killed my son
...it’s as dangerous

ONE year ago, my second son
Rupert took his life in violent
fashion.
Then 21, Rupert was attempting to
recover from drug-induced psychosis.
Supported by an attentive mother,
grandmother and visiting nurses, he was
on strong medication.
However, schizophrenia, triggered by
his cannabis habit at university, had
taken an unshakeable grip.
Specifically, his mind was plagued by
ugly, taunting gatecrashers he could

shocked me.
Beneath my radar, the
strength of cannabis had
shot up from the days when I
had the occasional spliff.
Back then in the late Seventies,
the psychoactive ingredient, THC, was 1.4
per cent, enough to make you disengaged
but not enough to make you mad.
Now, most of the stuff sold as cannabis
is 14 per cent, ten times higher, a brain
re-arranger that goes by the name of
“skunk” or “superskunk”.
The King’s College London study
published this week shows skunk now
forms 94 per cent of cannabis for sale.
It is shocking but does not surprise
me. Skunk will continue muscling out its
weaker-potency version.
It is also getting stronger. Ten years
ago, the strongest cannabis in Britain
was 10.9 per cent. Now it is 29 per cent.
Why are growers modifying the cannabis plant to achieve such strength?
Inquiries led me to learn that the
higher the strength, the more susceptible
users were to addiction. As a dealer you

It’s an unlikely partnership, really. But
it’s giving me more laughs than Cannon

much all you need to know about the
Labour Party right now.
Tom is Tom Watson MP, the lardbucket bruiser and deputy leader of
Labour — Jeremy Corbyn’s right-hand

multi-millionaire former boss of Formula
One, who was famously exposed for
being involved in a sadomasochistic orgy

who loathed Jews and black people.
It’s also been discovered that during
that by-election, Max Mosley’s name was

Doesn’t seem, on the face of it, that the
two men would have much in common,
does it? But this week Tom has been
standing up for his partner. Brushed
aside the fact that Max was happy to
endorse horrible stuff saying black people
were ridden with diseases.
Odd position for a leftie to take, no?
But the thing is, Tom and Max get along
very well for two important reasons.
First, Max gives Tom lots of money,
for his party. Loads of wonga. Tom is
very much in favour of that. He’s just
trousered a half-million quid donation to

the party from Max. Now you begin
to understand why the two get along

But the other reason is that both men

designed
to
stop
papers
exposing
powerful men who too often get their
rocks off with exploited sex workers
equipped with whips. And he doesn’t like
his fascist past exposed.
Devoid of principle
Tom, meanwhile, wants to clamp down
on newspapers. He doesn’t like it when
we question whether his leader, Corbyn,
was rather too pally with a spy from the
other side of the Iron Curtain.
No doubt he’d rather we didn’t report
things like this. He’s in favour of legislating to STOP us reporting things like this.
So they actually have quite a few
shared interests. There are demands for
Tom to hand back that £500,000 given to
Labour. But while the party yesterday
said it would not be accepting any more
donations from Mosley, it declined to
demand Mr Watson return the money
donated last year.
Can you imagine how Labour would
react if a donor to the Tory party was
revealed as having been a racist fascist
who used prostitutes?
Hell, there were Labour MPs demanding that Tory minister Damian Green be
sacked for having once possibly touched a
woman on the knee.
I don’t think Damian, or the woman,
had a whip with them.
And how do Tom’s ethnic minority
constituents in West Bromwich East feel
about him accepting all that money from
a man who was happy to endorse leaflets
suggesting black people brought us
venereal diseases?
Does Tom give a toss? Like his party
under Corbyn, he appears utterly devoid
of principle.
It’s a party which appears to tolerate
the bullying and harassment of women.
The vilification of Jewish people.
And a clampdown on the press — is it
to stop us letting you know exactly what
these ruthless, amoral people are up to?

Yet for a string of bereaved families

At least nine Western backpackers
have been murdered or died in
unexplained circumstances on this tiny
eight-square-mile tropical idyll in the
past five years
They include two young British
visitors bludgeoned to death as they
strolled along the golden sands of
Sairee Beach to their hotel.
Campaigners insist that the two
Burmese migrant workers convicted of
the murders — currently languishing
on death row — were framed.
Thai authorities have explained away
the other deaths as accidents or
suicide, but some relatives insist their
loved ones were murdered.
Koh Tao’s cops, they insist, are

But friends holidaying with Luke say
a local policeman initially told them
he had been in a fight in another bar

murder.
A British inquest later recorded an

Sara added: “Youngsters need to

STREISAND HAS HER
DYING DOG CLONED
By JAMES BEAL, US Editor
SINGING legend Barbra Streisand has revealed
she had her dying dog cloned and now has
two duplicates.
She said scientists used cells from 14-year-old
Samantha’s mouth and stomach before she died last
May. She has called her replica Coton de Tulear
dogs Miss Violet and
Miss Scarlett.
Streisand, 75, told Variety magazine: “They have
different personalities. I’m
waiting for them to get
older so I can see if they
have her brown eyes and
her seriousness.”
The pups were born
to a surrogate, using
Samantha’s
genetic
material, in a procedure
believed to have cost
£72,000.
First the nucleus was
removed from eggs from
donor dogs, then Samantha’s cells were injected
into the eggs.
Texas-based
ViaGen,
believed to be the only
firm
offering
cloning,
charging £36,000 for a
dog and £18,000 for a cat.
But last night campaigners People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals said cloning “was
not fair” to the various
animals involved.
They added: “We all
want our beloved dogs to
live forever but cloning
doesn’t achieve that. It
creates a new and different dog who has only the
physical characteristics of
the original.
“And when you consider millions of adoptable dogs are languishing
in shelters, you realise
that cloning adds to the
homeless animal crisis.”
Streisand has a third
dog, a cousin of Samantha she bought from the
same
breeder
while
waiting for the clones.

NUTS TO CANCER
EATING nuts may help prevent colon cancer returning after treatment, according to a study.
Patients who ate 1oz servings of tree nuts twice a

An ounce would be 18 cashews, 24 almonds or 14

victims’ homes “nice and tidy”.
Privately-educated graduate
Adams — the son of a Falklands War hero — was jailed
for five years and four months
after admitting 58 burglaries.
He had served three years
previously for 80 burglaries.
He returned to crime after a
recruitment firm he set up on
his release in 2015 went under.
Adams was a convicted
drink driver and chose to go
by train and bike from Poole,
Dorset, to the New Forest to
find empty homes to rob in
villages
like
Nursling.
He
eventually turned himself in.
Jonathan Reuben, defending
at Bournemouth crown court,
said he “was careful to do as
little damage as he could” to
the properties.
Judge Brian Forster QC told
Adams: “This case is a tragedy
for you. You have had opportunities in your life.”
Mum Teresa Adams-Stairs,
64, said: “When he handed
himself in the policeman said
he couldn’t believe he was a
burglar. He’s so respectablelooking.”
Teresa, of Sturminster Marshall, Dorset, said her son
never knew his RAF dad who
died at 37 in an accident. She
said: “Lack of a father figure
may
have affected him.
He’s
my
son
and you have
to stand by
him no matter how big
an idiot he’s
been.”

JAMES’ WHAM! MOMENT
HIS Carpool Karaoke with ADELE was
viewed more than 176million times.
But JAMES CORDEN has credited
the late GEORGE MICHAEL for helping
to create the Carpool format – after he
joined the former Wham! star for a BBC
Comic Relief sketch in 2011.
Late Late Show host James says: “I
feel proud to have spent a second in his
orbit. He was the most incredible artist.
It feels weird to say I miss him because
our friendship was mostly based on text
messages and the occasional phone
call. But I miss him as a fan.”
As well as lining up BEYONCE for his
next Carpool, James also teased that he
is working on a project for Disney.
In the new issue of Attitude, out now,
he adds: “I think I’m going to do a film in
2019, and I’d be really disappointed with
myself if I didn’t do another play at some
point. I’m also writing a thing for Disney
and developing a film for Sony.”
He’s certainly keeping busy.

CHERYL SONG BEARS SOUL
RECORD label bosses fear her music
career is already finished, but it
hasn’t stopped CHERYL teaming up
with NAUGHTY BOY in a frantic bid
to land another chart hit.
And after spending 12 hours a day in
the studio amid relationship trouble
with LIAM PAYNE, Cheryl is hoping
a “soulful” track about son Bear
will save her pop star status.
It comes as I revealed
yesterday that Universal Music
bigwigs believe she is all but
over as a singer.
In an exclusive interview,
producer
Naughty
said:
“Cheryl has got back in the studio
just after having a baby and it’s still
very personal, but she is a real artist
and a perfectionist.
“She does up to 12 hours a day and I
just feel that shows how ready she is.”
The producer, who is launching a
new burger called The Naughty One
with Shake Shack, added: “I can’t tell
you the name of her track but it has
been influenced by her son Bear.
“It has got more edge than anything
she has done before. I feel it is going
to be very special and meaningful.”
At least he’s hopeful, unlike the
record execs . . .

He laid into Noel and wife Sara
in vicious tweets, right, dubbing
them after serial killers Fred and
Rose West and claiming she broke
up the brothers’ group OASIS.
With echoes of THE BEATLES’
famous feud with JOHN LENNON’s
wife YOKO ONO, Liam tweeted:
“It’s time to address the witch.
You want me to drop dead, you
have a screw loose.”
He also posted: “She’s the

put it out there, she’s dark.” And
he added: “We were about to go
on tour to the USA, she robbed
Noel’s passport, f****ed with
his head for a week and he

Aids and drop dead.” Hinting the
Gallaghers’ mum Peggy is now
riled by Sara, Liam also tweeted:
“My mam’s got your number,
darling. Not hard to forget 666.”
Liam tweeted a blast at Noel’s
pal PAUL WELLER, too, after the
rocker praised his solo success —
writing: “Weller’s full of s*** as
well. Porcelain Modfather, can’t
wait to bump him.”
In December, Liam seemed to
seek peace with Noel — tweeting:
“I wanna say Happy Xmas to
team NG. Looking forward to
seeing you tomorrow.”
He has also claimed he would
reform Oasis if Noel agreed. But a
source dismissed that, adding:
“Liam’s on a wind-up. There’s no
sign of making up.”
That’s quite an understatement.

LIE 20: You’re too sick for sex
HAVING a headache is probably the number
one excuse for avoiding sex.
But people who have sex up to twice a
week actually boost their immune system –
making them feel better.
Researchers at Wilkes University in
Pennsylvania found busy bonkers had
more of the antibody immunoglobulin – the
first line of defence against colds and flu.
LIE 19: The missionary is meh
ANYONE who says they do not
love the missionary position is
either lying – or from Belfast.
A nationwide survey in 2015
revealed it to be the number
one position for lovers everywhere in the UK – except in
Northern Ireland where women
came out on top, literally. The
straight-forward missionary is
great for talking during intimacy
and is one of the most visually
exciting positions.
To rev it up a little, the woman
could raise her bottom with a
cushion to boost stimulation.
LIE 18: Men think about sex all the time
WHEN your bloke is staring vacantly, don’t
assume he is picturing a naughty fantasy.
A study by Ohio State University found
men averaged just 34 thoughts about sex
every day. The research also discovered
blokes are almost equally obsessed with
food, with 25 daily thoughts about what
they are going to eat.

LEGENDARY boxer Muhammad Ali famously
abstained from sex for two weeks before a

While Swiss scientists found having a
romp did cause a dip in performance two
hours later – sex the night before would
not harm an athlete’s performance.

LIE 16: Only teens peak too soon
PREMATURE ejaculation is
usually associated with young
teens lacking the experience
to control their ejaculation – but
it can happen to anyone.
It affects 30 per cent of men at
some time in their lives. Masturbating an hour or two before
having sex, the woman going on
top, taking breaks during sex or
even thinking about something
boring can all help.
Sometimes when it happens
to men over the age of 30 it could
indicate erectile dysfunction,
fatigue, depression or anxiety.
Couples therapy could also be
beneficial.
LIE 15: You can’t get knocked up standing up
THERE are many misconceptions about
conception – such as you can’t get
pregnant standing up or having sex in
water. In truth, it is possible to get pregnant
every time you have sex. It is even possible
to get pregnant when you are already
pregnant in a rare occurrence called
“superfetation.” Never say never.

THE more sex a woman has, the

Vaginas vary in size, with the
average diameter being anywhere

LIE 12: Oysters are an aphrodisiac
LIE 13: Sperm compete to get to the egg
HURRAH, there is no need to put these
slimy shellfish in your mouth ever again.
Scientists at Harvard Medical School say
oysters have no ingredients to get you in
the mood.
Plus, there is not enough evidence to say
they boost libido. However, the zinc in the
oysters can help make men’s sperm
stronger swimmers.
THE legend goes that fertilising an egg in
the ovaries is about survival of the fittest
sperm as millions of swimmers compete.
People do not realise eggs must also
compete against thousands of other
eggs to become fertilised, according to
experts Nina Brochmann and Ellen Dahl,
who wrote the Wonder Down Under.

Pelvic-floor exercise can help
regain tone. Try squeezing the
muscles 10-15 times, then hold
each squeeze for a few seconds.
Or, try a pelvic-floor toning
system such as PelvicToner,

(also on NHS prescription).
LYING back and thinking of
England during penetrative sex
is unlikely to result in orgasm –
for the woman anyway.
Around 75 per cent of females
never orgasm through intercourse and require clitoral
stimulation, which means lots of
foreplay and maybe even a
vibrator to help reach climax. It is
also a myth that all women
orgasm. Anorgasmia is a condition where a woman cannot
orgasm, but this doesn’t meanshe can’t enjoy sex. It’s not about
what you get but how you get
there, so make the foreplay as
pleasurable as possible.

The Take Me Out host’s wife

said: “Christine has been

“It’s not great news for Paddy
who’s seen enough of his

It provoked Christine to post
on social media hinting at her

Wife’s left me for
guy in next road
I THOUGHT my wife was
my soulmate and the sex
was great, too – then she
cheated on me and
moved in with a guy who
lives in the next street.
I’m 46 and she’s 29. We were
together for ten years and have a
six-year-old son.
We’ve had our ups and downs
through
the
years,
just
like
everyone else. She suffered from
post-natal depression that lasted a
year but we got through it
together with patience and love.
She
was
always
a
homely
person, a stay-at-home wife. That
suited me fine as I loved being
with her as much as I could.
Last year she lost lots of weight
and bought some stylish clothes.
She looked really great and started
to go out with friends.
I was proud of her lovely new
figure and was very happy to see
her enjoying herself. I trusted her
100 per cent.
Then
she
wanted
to
stay
overnight at one of her mates’
houses. I thought once was OK
but it soon became twice a week.
Then she told me that we’d

grown apart and her feelings for
me weren’t the same. I couldn’t
believe how much she’d changed.
I managed to look at her phone
while she slept and saw texts
between her and a man.
It was clear she was cheating on
me but at first she denied it, then
she confessed she was seeing a
guy who lives in the next street.
I was devastated. That night I
got very drunk and told her to go.
That clearly played into her
hands as she immediately packed
her bags and moved in with the
guy, with our young son in tow.
Now I cry every day and I’m very
depressed. My wife and son are
my world and I can’t bear to live
without them.
It’s hurting so much that I
struggle to get out of bed most
days. Please tell me how I can win
back her love.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I’m sorry, I wish I
could. Maybe she’ll realise she’s made
a mistake but for now you must get
on with living the best way you can.
You gave her the best of yourself and
she could have told you that she was
unhappy or bored. She really owed
that to you and your son but instead
she decided to leave.
Write her a letter to say you still
love her and you’re willing to talk about
how things can change. In the
meantime, you need to look after
yourself and be there for your son.
See your GP for help with your
depression. Confide in a friend or a
counsellor or contact CALM –
Campaign Against Living Miserably
(thecalmzone.net, 0800 585858).
Explain to your wife that your son
needs to see you, to know that this
wasn’t his fault, that you still love him
and you’re still his dad.

We first became friends 12

She told me that she’d been

Dear Deidre
MY sister is dying of cancer
and today she confessed
she’d had sex with my
husband. She wanted to get
the guilt off her chest.
It was three years ago.
They were both at a party
when I was away.
The long and the short of it
is they had too much to drink
and had sex in her bed.
What’s worse is she blames
it on him.
She’s 46 and has spent her
life drinking, smoking and
having affairs. She lives on
her own and now has carers
coming in every day.
I’m 48. I’ve looked after
myself and have been
happily married for 25 years.
Should I just walk away? I
feel so betrayed by them both.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: That was
a massive betrayal but it
was just a one-off when too
much drink was at least
partly to blame. Don’t give
up on your long, happy
marriage just yet.
Whatever her motives,
your sister’s confession has
caused you great pain.
Bear in mind she’s

OFF ME
Dear Deidre
MY husband has not worked
in months and seems happy
to live off me. If I raise the
subject of money or him
finding work, he starts
shouting then will ignore me
for days.
We’ve been married for five
years. He says he loves me
but his actions don’t match.
I pay all the bills and I pay
for his drinking and smoking.
I’m also gradually paying
back money he owes.
He said he was depressed
so I paid for him to see a
counsellor. He went a couple
of times and then told me the
counsellor said it was OK for
him to drink nine cans of
Stella a day.
His moods really stress me
out, both at work and at
home. We’re both 28. Is my
marriage a sham?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: In a word,
yes. This really isn’t how
marriage should be.
He’s a bully who drinks far
too much, so stop giving
him money for it and stop
paying his debts.
You know in your heart
he’s not going to change so
stop thinking of him and
think about how to get free.

him, start by talking to the

resentment and affect close relationships.
Gain some backbone and work on your resilience
levels. Don’t be a doormat.
YOU know what you want and aren’t afraid to ask for
it. You get the right balance between being self-full
and selfish.
Those around you know that no means no and
your decisions are all about fairness. While you
don’t enjoy conflict, you can see it in a constructive
context and use it to further relationships.
You are called upon for your balanced judgment
and advice. You like honesty and won’t suffer fools.
YOU like to think you have all the answer but you
sometimes fail to explore others’ suggestions and
can appear bombastic or arrogant.
You want others to see the world your way and your
behaviour can come across as bullying. While you
exude an air of confidence, this shields insecurity.
You want to appear effective but trample on others’
ideas without thinking of the impact. Sadly, you often
alienate people, though you can be loving and loyal.

THE mum-of-three talks family life in
her weekly column.
Today Peta, who is married to
cycling great Mark Cavendish, talks
about the ups and downs of having a
long-distance relationship while her
husband is competing away.
PEOPLE can be very quick to put in
their ten pence when it comes to other
people’s relationships.
David Beckham has moved to Miami
while Posh stays in the UK, so they
must be on the rocks. Liam Payne’s in
LA while Cheryl is in London, so
obviously they’re splitting up.
But my advice is not to judge.
Families come in all shapes and sizes.
Take me and Mark. I get a lot of
messages asking how our family gets
along with Mark being away so often
with his cycling.
The answer is simply that we muddle
through. Mark misses birthdays, sports
days and special occasions, while I
hold the fort. I don’t remember it any
other way.
It’s hard on Mark because he
experiences a lot of family milestones
via FaceTime, videos and photos.
Meanwhile, day-to-day parenting is
on me – disciplining, reading Biff and
Chip books a thousand times,
marshalling yet another germ-ridden
kids’ party.

on. I verbally drown Mark when he’s
back to make up for all the
conversations we have missed.
Broken record
Don’t get me wrong, I like my own
company. But it’s hard when someone I
have built this life with is on the other
side of the world.
And I know there are lots of other
families like us, who have either Mum or
Dad away for work for weeks or even
months at a time.
I become a broken record in the kids’
ears about homework, bedtime and
eating broccoli, while Mark comes
home to a fanfare of drawings and
hugs. Maybe I’m jealous of his time out,
of the praise he gets from the kids or
even both.
The bottom line is that most families
are unconventional in some way. We all
have to play by rules that work for us.
To make our family work, I sometimes
travel solo with three children in tow to
make sure we all get time together. I
turn it into an adventure for the kids.
Mark hates missing bathtime every
night but he works hard at something
he is good at to look after his family
and make us proud.
I never feel we are less of a team
because we are apart. I count down the
sleeps every time he is away and we
relish the time we do spend together.
The roles of mum, dad, husband and
wife are not set in stone. I love that we
embrace being individuals and have
separate goals, as well as team ones.
It’s when I spot families spending
their Sunday afternoons all together
that I feel the most like we are missing
a puzzle piece.
But I take a deep breath and
remember that even though our family
life spans countries and time zones, our
hearts are all in the same place.

“HIP problems are very
common, especially in
middle-aged women,”
says Sammy.
“The best sleeping
position is on your back,
as this gives the hips a
rest from the stress of
walking and sitting all day.
“But most people who
suffer with hip problems
prefer to sleep on their
sides.
“Placing a pillow
between your thighs or
under the hips will
minimise twisting strain
and stack your hips on
top of each other,
squaring them up.
Back
AROUND 40 per cent of
us suffer spinal issues
and nearly nine in ten will
experience back pain.
Keeping the spine in a
neutral, naturally curved
position when you sleep
will help avoid these
problems.
Sammy says: “Don’t
sleep on your tummy. Try
sleeping on your back
with a pillow under the
knees. This will help to
soften both the knees
and the back. If you’re a
side sleeper, draw legs
up towards your chest
and sleep with a pillow
between the knees.”
Stiff neck
CHOOSING the right
pillows will keep neck
pain at bay. “If you have
too few, or too many, you
neck will bend to the
side,” says Sammy.
“You don’t want your
neck to kink to the left or
the right as that will pinch
on the nerves and may
lead to shoulder and
neck pain.
“Lie on your side if you
can, with the head
straight. Don’t lay on your
front but if you feel you
can’t sleep any other way,
place a pillow under the
chest to reduce how
much you twist in bed.”
Knees
KNEE osteoarthritis affects
more than 4.7million
people, so lying on your
side with knees together
can be uncomfortable.
Sammy says: “The best
thing to do is lie on your
back with a pillow under
the knees. Or sleep on
your side with a pillow
between your knees.
“You can buy special
knee pillows with a Velcro
strap that provide
cushioning all night. They
work by gently parting
your knees and keeping
your legs aligned with
your pelvis to minimise
discomfort.”

Headaches
HEADACHES can result
from a bad night’s sleep
and a bad position could
make matters worse. A
firmer, more supportive
pillow might help.
“Headaches are often
down to lifestyle,” Sammy
says. “But if you have too
many or too few pillows, it
may cause a headache.
Ensure your neck is not
twisted to one side or
tucked into your chest.
“Lots of us make the
mistake of doubling up or
folding pillows. Keep the
neck in the mid-line
position.”
Sinus
IF you suffer from sinus
pressure issues it is
possible your symptoms
hit you harder when you
are in bed at night.
Dr Cooper says: “When
you lie flat on your back,
mucus gathers, making
it harder for you to
breathe.
“This can be extremely
uncomfortable when you
are battling a cold or an
infection.
“Try raising your head
up slightly. Propping up
your head with an extra
pillow should make it
easier for you to breathe.”
Anxiety
THOSE who suffer with
stress or anxiety often
sleep curled up tightly.
But this can make the
muscles tense.
Psychologist Emma
Kenny says: “If you suffer
with stress or anxiety, it is
crucial to get a good
night’s sleep. Try a warm
bath with aromatherapy
oils before going to bed.
“Sleep on your back
and relax your muscles.
As you breathe, allow the
abdomen to rise. As you
breathe out, let it flatten
again. This slow, rhythmic
pattern should help send
you to sleep.”
Blood
pressure
LYING face down has
been shown to reduce
your blood pressure,
according to Dr Carol
Cooper.
She says: “Sleeping on
your front may not be
great for your posture, but
a 2004 study carried out
in Japan did find that
sleeping on your tummy
might reduce high blood
pressure.”
The blood pressure of
men with an average age
of 50 decreased
“significantly” when they
flipped over.
MAYO & PISTACHIO CRUST
YOU NEED:
4 salmon fillets,
approximately
550g (with skin)
tbsp rapeseed
oil
1 tsp sesame oil
Sea salt
Cracked black
pepper
1 tbsp mayonnaise
tsp wasabi
powder/paste
40g roughly
chopped
pistachios
METHOD: Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/
Gas Mark 6. In a large non-stick frying pan,
heat the rapeseed and sesame oil and place
the salmon fillets in the pan, flesh side down,
for 20 seconds.
Turn the fillets over on to the skin side and
cook for two minutes over a medium-high
heat. Take off the heat and allow to cool. Once
cooled, season the fillets with salt and pepper.
Mix the mayonnaise with tsp wasabi
powder or paste.
Place the fillets on a greased baking tray or
dish, or if your frying pan can go in the oven,
then use the same frying pan.
Using a knife, spread the mayonnaise
mixture evenly over the top over the
four fillets.
Press the chopped pistachios on to the top
of each fillet. Bake salmon until cooked
through and the nut topping is crisp and
golden brown, about ten-12 minutes (cook for
15 minutes if you prefer well-cooked).
Using a spatula, transfer salmon fillets on to
a platter and serve with a side of your choice.

VINNIE’S
FIRST clue. I’m at a golf
resort in Palm Springs and
there are two British motors
on the drive.
An old Roller with the numberplate
GB VIN and a Range Rover Sport
registered UK VIN.
Second clue. In the TV room,
there’s a huge film poster for Lock,
Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
Who lives in a house like this?
Well done, Sherlock. You got it.
It’s Vinnie Jones. The big man in
the big picture, with the new plug-in
Range Rover Sport. The Gazzatesticle-twisting-footie-hardman-turnedmovie-hardman . . . and car nut.
Now let me be clear right from the
start. Vinnie wasn’t paid for this chat.
He’s a mate of a mate and he’s
buzzing after having his 1995 Land
Rover Defender 110 lavishly restored.
Vinnie said: “I paid seven and a
half grand for it, f***ing old rust
bucket it was. I just wanted to cut
the roof out to shoot a few rabbits.
“But then I found this geezer,
Stuart Brown, who does all this
customising and I said to him, ‘What
can you do?’ And he said, ‘Whatever
you want’. And I thought, ‘Really?’
“So, I’m literally — this is how bad
it was — watching these restoration
programmes and I’m taking pictures
of the TV and sending them to him.
“I’m driving him mad, saying, ‘I
want this, this, this’. Every single nut
and bolt came off. Eighty grand later,
I get me motor back and it’s just
magnificent. It’s the f***ing b*****ks,
mate. The insurers have valued it at
150 grand. It’s my pride and joy.”
Now tell us about that Silver Spur.
“Me and Jason Statham came over
here and went, ‘Yeah, we’re in Hollywood, yeah, let’s get a f***ing Harley’.

‘I only wanted
‘Statham
hole in roof
borrowed it
for shooting. for first date
£80,000
with Kelly

Brook’
‘Smoke billowing
into the car’
“So I bought one, rode it around
LA for a bit but thought, ‘No, f***
that’. Too scary, mate. So I partexchanged it for the Roller, $27,000
plus five grand cash.
“It’s 1988 — the year we (Wimbledon) won the FA Cup, blue, from
Crewe — near enough to Liverpool,
innit. I just had to have it.
“That turns more heads than anything. Everyone loves that motor. I
just drive along at 40mph, f***ing the
b*****ks. It’s got VJ in the headrests.
“My first Hollywood motor after
Gone In Sixty Seconds was a
Ferrari Spider. That was the b*****ks.
I got the f***ing buzz for that because
we were testing all the cars.
“My mate ended up with that. I had
an Avantgarde Mercedes. Tasty one.
Statham was going on his first date
with Kelly Brook and he phoned me
up and said, ‘I’ve only got me old
van, have you got a motor I can
borrow?’ He took her out in that.
“My
real
nice
one
was
the
Bentley Arnage, f***ing loved that
motor. It was so funny. We had the
builders at the house and I said to
them I want a big fountain with a
brick wall round it. They said, ‘Yeah,
yeah. We can do that for you, Vin’.
“I go to Ascot with some pals, come
home, we’re all b*****ksed, then about
2am I give my mate a lift down the
drive. I drop him off, go hurtling
back, forgot about the roundabout,
saw it too late, smashed the anchors
on, all gravel, and crash.
“I’ve scrambled out, gone inside,
and everyone said, ‘Oh my god, what
was that noise?’ I said, ‘Some f***er
has put a roundabout in me drive’. I
left it parked up the wall and sorted
it the next day. I was driving around

Watford aged 15, no licence or f***
all. But in them days it was lax.
“I was driving a TK Bedford, filling
up with sand and cement and
supplies and taking it to the boys on
the build.”
At Leeds United, Vinnie had a
BMW 325i as part of his contract. At
Sheffield United, he drove “Vinnie’s
Vauxhall”, a sponsored Calibra. It got
smashed up by Wednesday fans.
And in his early days at Wimbledon he had a red Mk4 Cortina . . .
last seen at Stamford Bridge.
“We were playing Chelsea away
and Derek French, the physio, had a
car pass because he had the kit. So I
give him and Dave Beasant a lift.
“We pull up at Stamford Bridge
and the security guard was refusing
to let us in at first.
“I said, ‘We’ve got the f***ing kit in
the back, mate, you’ve got to let us
in’. Then all of a sudden, the f***ing
thing, the engine’s gone and smoke is
billowing into the car.
“They pushed me down the hill
and I parked it around the corner.
I’ve never seen it since. We beat
them 4-0 and I scored. It was my
third game. Forest away, Man United
1-0 at home, I scored, then Chelsea
away and scored.
“I was in the bar afterwards and
Frenchy went, ‘F*** that, I’m telling
you now, go and see Dave Bassett on
Monday and you’ll get a new contract, you won’t need that car. And
I’ve never seen it since.
“Seven or eight years later, I signed
for Chelsea. I pulled up in my Audi
Quattro and I said to Ken Bates, ‘Do
you know where my Cortina is? I left
it in your car park’.”
Nowadays, Vinnie’s daily drive is
the Range Rover Sport. And he won’t
be changing that any time soon.
“The thing is, there’s always the
question: What can I go to a
premiere in? What can I go to
dinner in? What can I go to a
funeral in? What can I go shooting
in? Fishing? It ticks every box. It’s
the car for all occasions. The daddy.
“It’s a statement vehicle without
sticking it up your nose.”

The connection between guardian-angel Jupiter and Venus,
planet of sweet love, sets up a day when prizes can be won,
tests passed and the kind of love that makes you happy can be
found. At work, the help you give to a new recruit has an
intriguing effect on your future.
You can review recent events one more time, then let them slide
out of your mind and focus on building a romantic and resilient
love match. In the working world, there is a choice to make as a
job you find easy, with people who treat you well, competes
with a more competitive but high-paying role.
As the moon moves into your sign, there is something special
about you that makes people want to please you. Use it wisely
to get a special project underway. Later, as Mercury and Pluto
connect the two love zones of your chart, a pairing starts to
deliver, just as you meet a gorgeous alternative.
Honest talking and some tact can get a family relationship
working as you want it to. But when friends speak in a public
place, remember that while love gossip seems like fun, it can
lead to bad feelings. If you start the day single, the most likely
place to find love is where your favourite food is sold.

WHEN a family takes a child out
of school they are fined because
it affects the child’s education —
but when we get a few flakes of
snow, the school closes.
The child loses education and
the parents lose out on earnings
because they have to take time
off work.
When I went to school in the
Forties and Fifties, the school
never closed and I had to walk
in through the snow. We had
great snowball fights before we
got there.
We pay £50 for our Star Letter of the day: Email letters@the-sun.co.uk. Fax us on 020 7782 4170 or write to Dear Sun, The Sun,

Mercury, guiding your sign, encourages you to say a confident
“yes” to a job you have secretly wanted to do but is not what
others expect. Visiting a relative with a new address feels like a
chore until the door is opened by someone you were longing to
meet. A chance run-in with an old boss is lucky.

Believing in love without questioning the magical effect it can
have could draw the perfect partner into your life – or help you
make the best of what you have. A working partnership
you start in your spare time that involves turning plain clothes
into beautiful outfits could grow into a career.
Your mind is sharp and, as a property plan starts to progress,
you know exactly the kind of place you could call home. When it
comes to love, you and a partner rewind emotionally and the
relationship gets back to its best. Single? That person you’d
love to see again goes from a dream to your door.
Venus is in a cool, thoughtful part of your chart and your love
strategy is wise, first acknowledging everything great about
your relationship before agreeing on what could be better.
When it comes to work, a new project is more profitable than
anyone expects and can cause some jealousy.
Pluto, the planet that brings money from unexpected places, is
working well for you. This can include cash that was set aside
up to 12 years ago to help fund a sports dream. Just as you think
love may be little more than wishful thinking, you hear the calm
but richly romantic words that change everything.
The spotlight is on established relationships as the moon
shows you a different side of a partner. It explains a great deal
and you can make a fresh start together. If you are free to start a
new relationship, what starts as a conversation about a new
business in the neighbourhood can lead to romance.

GERMANY
WHITBREAD is to buy 19
hotels in Germany as part
of the company’s plans to
take its PREMIER INN
brand international.
Chief executive Alison
Brittain said the German
market had the potential
to “deliver strong returns
in the future”.
It is 35 per cent bigger
than the UK market.
The COSTA COFFEE
owner has a target of
operating 31 German properties under the brand by
the end of 2020.
This latest deal includes
13 that are already open
and trading. A further six
are in the pipeline to open
over the next two years.
There is currently just
one Premier Inn there, in
Frankfurt.
WORKERS’
TRUST KEY
WORKERS value a trusting
relationship with their
employer more than perks,
a BUPA survey found.
The health insurer’s
study found two-thirds felt
it was more important
than gym membership or a
company mobile.
And just over half said it
mattered more than a free
canteen or a company car.
Bupa director Mark Allen
said trust can boost motivation and help firms hang
on to talented workers.
A quarter said they had
left a job over problems
related to trust.
ADMIRAL

F JOY
TEN thousand staff at
ADMIRAL are in line for a
windfall after the insurer
posted record profits of
£403million last year.
The bonanza will see
employees each get
£3,600 in free shares.
The results mark a turnaround for the Cardiffbased firm — which also
owns CONFUSED.COM and
ELEPHANT — after it took
a £150million hit in 2016.
Chief executive David
Stevens said: “2016 was
only the second year we’d
ever reported a year-onyear fall in profits.”

BOOKER
WINNER
SHAREHOLDERS have given
their overwhelming backing
to a TESCO bid to take over
cash & carry outfit BOOKER.
Tesco chief exec Dave Lewis
said the £3.7billion deal will
benefit customers, suppliers
and shareholders. He added:
“I’m delighted the shareholders of both companies have
backed the merger.”
It is tipped to go through
on March 5 and will create
the UK’s biggest food business, with Tesco serving the
wholesale restaurant market
as well as the high street.
Tesco shares closed up
nearly two per cent at 211p.
AMAZON
has
bought
a
“smart” doorbell firm for a
reported £720million.
RING makes bells that
stream video to residents so
they can chat to visitors.
The firm’s Video Doorbell 2
already links to Amazon’s
voice-driven assistant Alexa.
It means customers could
open the door for Amazon
deliveries even when out.
Analyst Colin Sebastian
said the deal chimed with
Amazon’s aggressive move
into home security.
CAR FINA
CLAIMS the bubble is
about to burst on car
finance
have
been
dismissed in a report
by AUTO TRADER.
The firm says growth
in such deals means
luxury brands like BMW
and MERCEDES-BENZ are
now within the grasp of
ordinary consumers.
But critics say it lands
motorists with huge debts if
they get into difficulty.
Research by Auto Trader
found the average value of
cars bought on finance is
£17,087 — 68 per cent higher
than the £10,142 average
spend when bought outright.
But chief exec Nathan Poe
said some market watchers
are mistaking strong growth
for a credit bubble.
He
added:
“This
does
ignore the degree to which
automotive finance is replacing other forms of finance
such as mortgage drawdowns and personal loans.
“So the growing cynical
view in the City that car
finance is a credit bubble
waiting to burst is not
warranted.”
Finance agreements such
as personal contract pur-
Buyers
Merc it
chase, personal contract hire
and hire purchase have seen
a surge in popularity.
Auto Trader’s report found
37 per cent of those who
took out such deals did so
to spread payments monthly.
Mr Poe said there had
been a “shift in mindset
from ownership to usership”.
He compared car finance
to services such
as
mobile
phones and music streaming.
He added: “That’s why we’re
seeing a massive growth in
the likes of Mercedes.”
But vehicles bought on
finance remain property of
the finance firm until at
least the end of the agreement — meaning the driver
cannot sell it in that period
and the car could be taken
back if payments are missed.
The Bank of England has
£Ave17rag,e0ti8cke7tar
warned the rise in consumers defaulting on car finance
deals creates a potential risk
for finance firms.
And Peter Tutton, of debt
charity
StepChange,
said
some consumers have problems negotiating with lenders
after getting into difficulty.
He called on firms to do
more to ensure buyers have
a clearer understanding of
what they are signing up to.

WIMPEY have taken a hit
from the housebuilder’s
compensation bill for the
“fleece-hold” scandal.
It was forced to set
aside £130million to bail

It meant pre-tax profits

Tough start . . . Ms McCall
HOPES AS
ADS FALL
ITV has reported a 10 per
cent drop in annual pretax profit to £500m.
The profit plunge made
for a sticky start for chief
executive Carolyn McCall.
But
she
expects
ad
revenue to get a boost
from the World Cup which
starts in June.
Ms McCall, who arrived
from EASYJET in January,
insists results for 2017 were
strong despite the challenging environment.
She blamed the drop in
advertising revenues on the
ongoing
economic
and
political uncertainty.
She added: “This has
undoubtedly had an impact
on
the
demand
for
television advertising and
therefore, as expected, ITV’s
financial performance.”
She added that the drop
in the value of the Pound
and rising inflation had led
some advertisers to spend
less.
But Ms McCall expects
2018 advertising revenue to
be up one per cent in the
first quarter, with a boost
from football in the second
quarter.
ITV will share World
Cup coverage with BBC.
The fall in advertising
income was partly offset by
growth in ITV’s studios
business.
Shares in the company
dropped nearly eight per
cent to 160p.
FOXTONS SLOWED
ESTATE agent FOXTONS
has seen profits plunge 65
per cent as it reels from
a slowdown in London’s
property market.
The firm, which cashed
in big on the capital’s
previous boom, warned of
“challenging” trading conditions in the year ahead.
It said London prices
held up last year but the
number
of
sales
fell,
leading to profits for 2017
of £18.8million.
Foxtons, whose rental
earnings fell 3 per cent
last year, also warned it
expects to take a hit from
government plans to ban
rip-off letting fees.
Boss Nic Budden said:
“We are exploring ways
to mitigate the impact.”

COURT OUT
Will won’t make
Festival date
By TOM PEPPER
BEN PAULING has ruled
Willoughby Court out of
the Cheltenham Festival.
The seven-year-old had
been favourite for the JLT
Novices’ Chase.
But Willoughby Court
(left) has failed to recover from a foot problem
in time for the big
meeting, which starts
in 12 days’ time.
Trainer
Pauling
said: “Time has
gone against us.
“His
infected
foot is grumbling
on and we’re losing more and
more time. It
doesn’t look like
we’re going to be able to get on
with him until next week. We’re
going to miss too much work
and it would be careless to try
to get him there.
“You may cause more damage
than good. It’s very likely you’ll
see him at Aintree.
“In one way it’s a huge relief
it’s nothing serious and it’s
basically a bit of bad luck.
“He’s not a horse who has had
any lameness in the past and
they can’t even find where the
infection came from, which is
even more annoying.”

DONCASTER have been
forced to call off their card
tomorrow due to snow.
And the track will inspect
at noon today to see
whether their big ITV meeting on Saturday, featuring
the Grimthorpe Chase, can
go ahead.
Clerk of the course
Roderick Duncan said yesterday: “Friday’s meeting
had no chance with all the
snow, but we’re inspecting
at noon for Saturday.
“There is a chance of a
minor improvement, so
we’ll see how that forecast
develops.
“They are talking about
the possibility of rain and
warmer weather on Sunday,
so if that happens to come
forward 24 hours or so,
there might be a chance.
“We just think we need to
give Saturday another 24
hours.”
NEWBURY’s card on
Friday has also been cancelled due to frost in the
ground.
Track officials will check
the course today to see
whether
Saturday’s
Greatwood Hurdle card can
go ahead.
KELSO have abandoned
Saturday’s card, which
included the Grade 2
Premier Hurdle. They hope
to restage the meeting.
NEWCASTLE abandoned
yesterday’s meeting due to
the cold weather and they
inspect this morning to see
whether racing can go
ahead today.
KEMPTON’s evening card
will also hinge on an inspection at 11am today.
Jumps cards planned for
today at LUDLOW and
TAUNTON were called off
earlier this week.
CHELMSFORD will
inspect at 1pm today for
their card tomorrow.

proper miles in proper conditions
The world champion has seen his
testing sessions wrecked by freezing
weather in Barcelona.
Brit Hamilton completed just 25
laps in his new Mercedes car over
three days at Circuit de Catalunya.
It is the LOWEST total of any F1
driver in the crucial testing period
ahead of the season opener
in Melbourne on March 25.
Hamilton, 33, mustered his
25 laps in damp conditions
on Monday — but was unable
to push his car to its limits.
Tuesday’s scheduled second
run was scrapped as it was

axed yesterday due to snow.

By contrast, Bottas has racked up
152 laps — the equivalent of three
race distances.
And the Finn, 28, feels his extra
time in the car could give him an
advantage over Hamilton (above).
Bottas said: “The miles in these

“I love to drive as much as possible

“I’ve learned how to get heat into

general behaviour but we still
need better conditions to
unlock everything and really

Bottas won three races in

but ruled out using mind

He added: “Last year I did

TRIBUTE . . . tragic Scott with dad John
‘Unique’
Scott was
going far
By WALLY DOWNES Jnr
HEARTBROKEN John Westgarth
claims his late son Scott was
destined to achieve boxing glory.
Westgarth
Snr
penned
an
emotional tribute yesterday to his
“unique baby” son, who died on
Sunday, aged 31.
Boxer Scott Westgarth passed
away in hospital hours after winning a light-heavyweight English
title eliminator bout against Dec
Spelman in Doncaster on Saturday.
Dad John wrote: “When my four
boys were born I wondered if any
would be boxers. Boxing was a
big part of my life.
“Scott Westgarth was my baby
No 2, a unique and special boy. I
say this because I’ve just lost him.
“Tragically taken from not just
me but everyone. Scott Westgarth
was unique in every way. This
young man could do it all.
“Whatever sport, it didn’t matter
what it was, he excelled. You
name it, he could do it.
“His career in boxing started off
a little uneasily but then he found
his way. He knew how to win, his
record speaks for itself.
“Everyone who ever met him or
stood in the ring or watched him
in the ring would say one thing:
He is unique, going places.
“And he knew it.”
Westgarth’s friends have signed
up to run next month’s Sheffield
half-marathon in his memory.
A GoFundMe page has been set
up to raise money for the
Westgarth family, gaining almost
£7,000 in just two days.
John added: “I want to thank
everyone for their condolences,
which has been overwhelming for
all the family. I can’t get round to
thanking you all personally at this
moment, but I’m sure I will.
“I thank the press for the
special tributes, so very touching.”

GOTCHA . . . Jos Buttler runs

TAKE THAT . . . Stokes
hits out on his way to
an unbeaten 63
By JOHN
ETHERIDGE
FOR Ben Stokes, the surge
of emotion that came
tumbling out was the best
feeling he has experienced
for many months.
There was even the hint of a
quiver in his voice as he spoke
about what it means to be
playing for England again —
and helping them win.
In only his second appearance since returning to international cricket, man-of-thematch Stokes took two wickets,
helped in two run-outs and hit
an accomplished 63 not out.
He still has a court trial for
affray hanging over him — he
has pleaded not guilty to the
charge — but this was a day
for relief and joy.
There has not been much of
that since the fateful night in
September
when
he
was
arrested following a street fight
outside a Bristol bar.
But after yesterday’s six-wicket
win over New Zealand here in
Mount Maunganui to level the
ODI series at 1-1, the all-rounder
said: “It was a great feeling to
be walking off not out, especially after a really commanding
performance from the team.
“It was very satisfying for
me. I was quite emotional
walking off at the end. It was
a different feeling to normal.
“Walking on the field in my
first game back on Sunday and
walking off here made me
understand how much of a
privilege it is to represent your
country.
“I’ve been working hard at
home to make sure that, when
the opportunity came again to
represent England, I wasn’t
going to let anyone down.
“There was relief and happiness — it’s been a long time.
“Hopefully, now this is a
stepping stone on the road to
trying to keep on helping
England win games.”
Opinion was divided over
whether the ECB should have
allowed him to be in Australia.
But
there
is
no
doubt
England missed his all-round
ability and aggressive, confident character in their 4-0
Ashes drubbing this winter.

“I want to be the best

how to change things, it’s harder to do.
But that’s the progression of the team
and unless you have these sort of
lessons you don’t learn from them and
we’ve learnt a lot.”
Jones and his coaching team have
already spent hours unpicking the
shocking defeat at Murrayfield.
England face France in Paris a week
on Saturday when another failure would
likely end their hopes of a record third
successive Six Nations title.
And he insists his men have the
bottle to bounce back and set up a
Twickenham showdown with Ireland on
March 17.
Jones added: “There’s no lack of attitude in our side. Any team that wins
24 in 26 games has got a bit of steel
about them.
“Yes, we were caught short on Saturday but they have plenty of steel about
them so I don’t need to worry about
the character of these players.”
Henry was appointed after New Zealand finished third when England won
the 2003 World Cup — beating an Australian side coached by Jones in the final.
They crashed out in the quarter-finals
four years later but were winners in
2011 — their first success since 1987 —
then again in 2015 under Henry’s
former assistant Steve Hansen.
Jones added: “If I just give a historical example of New Zealand and how
long it took them to fix things.
“After 20 minutes against Scotland it
would have been ideal if we could have
reacted quicker. We didn’t so it took us
until half-time.
“It’s a harsh lesson, it’s a lesson
we don’t want to have again but the
likelihood is we could well have it.
“We’ll get there but we’re going to
have these sorts of situations.”
Jones has talked up the need for
England to be bulletproof by the time
they get to the next World Cup in
Japan in 18 months.
And he believes his side are still on
track to do just that after spending
Sunday afternoon with legendary football boss Sir Alex Ferguson watching
Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-1.
He added: “Fergie mentioned a lot of
matches where things went wrong and
a lot of the times you don’t have a
solution to it. And that’s the reality.
“Our game’s not an exact science. We
don’t have robots, we have human
beings. Things can happen to people
and we don’t know why.
“There’s no short cuts. We all wish
there was.”

ANDY MURRAY is on
course to make an earlierthan-expected comeback.
World No 1 Roger Federer
and legend Boris Becker
have both urged Muzza
not to rush back after hip
surgery in January.
But word is the Scot,
30, is on target to return
for the grass court season
— perhaps even sooner.
Murray’s rehab has been
going so well that he
could be fit for the French
Open in late May.
But the ex-World No 1
has had a string of setbacks since his last match
at Wimbledon in July.
So he will surely take
no chances, particularly
since clay is such a
physically tough surface.
Murray hopes to start
hitting balls again towards
the end of March.
And the smart money is
on a comeback on grass
at Queen’s in June.
From Monday, Murray
will have added motivation
– losing his British No 1
status after 12 YEARS.
Kyle Edmund looks set
to leapfrog him in the
rankings because Murray
was not able to defend his

BARNSLEY’S Adam Jackson has thanked medics

Defender Jackson, 23, was carried off unconscious
following a first-half clash of heads with Tigers’ Jon
Toral at the KCOM Stadium.
It brought back memories of the career-ending
collision with Gary Cahill that left Hull’s Ryan Mason
with a fractured skull. Tuesday’s game was stopped
for 11 minutes before
Jackson went off on a

Toral was able to walk

football and the gap between
those who love it — and hate it
— is widening.
Whatever your views, VAR is
clearly spoiling the game by
taking too long over decisions,
with those fans inside the
stadium left in the dark.
What should have been a
good old-fashioned FA Cup
replay will forever be remembered for seeing referee Paul
Tierney, listening to advice,
with a finger stuck in his ear.
Tottenham fans would like to
have stuck it somewhere else.
Rochdale boss Keith Hill
admitted afterwards he thinks
VAR is “superb” and “amazing”
but accepts it needs to be
improved so fans at games
know what is going on.
Having
the
VAR
replays
shown on TV screens could be
an improvement and maybe,
one day, that will happen.
But it seems we are destined
for
further
confusion
and
frustration before we get to a
satisfactory system.
As
Spurs
boss
Mauricio
Pochettino said afterwards, the
VAR-riddled first half was
“embarrassing” and there is a
hell of a lot of work to do.
This will take years and,
even then, it will not be perfect. It never will be.
Quite rightly, Poch insisted it
would be too early for Premier
League to use video refs next
season, even though he is “a
fan of technology”.
After Rochdale threatened to
push Spurs all the way again,
Fernando Llorente netted three
times
in
12
second-half
minutes to set up a quarterfinal trip to his former club
Swansea.
But afterwards, no one was
talking about Llorente — just
a machine.
Due to concerns over snow,
the
pitch
markings
were
painted dark blue before VAR
officials voiced their fears that
the system would only work
with lighter paint.
So instead, we had a sort of
light blue colour and it was
inevitable that VAR would be
called into action.
And indeed, it was needed
after just five minutes and 32
seconds of this replay.
There seemed nothing wrong
with Tottenham’s goal when
Erik Lamela turned the ball
into the net.
Llorente had appeared to
tangle with Harrison McGahey,
with both pulling each other’s
shirts. But after the first

lengthy wait of the night, it
was the Spurs striker who was
penalised.
It was the correct decision
— but took an age in the
Wembley freezer.
Ref Tierney was not proving
popular with the sparse home
crowd and he wound them up
again when he denied Spurs a
penalty after Lucas Moura
went down in the area.
Yet it did not stop Spurs
from controlling the game and
Heung-min Son’s opening goal,
after he sidestepped Joseph
Rafferty, was deserved.
So, we all just sat back
— still bloody freezing — and
expected to watch a comfortable Tottenham win.
Yet it was anything but.
As we waited for Lamela to
take a 27th-minute free-kick,
ref Tierney stunned everyone
by awarding a penalty after
intervention
from
VAR.
Although Matt Done’s foul on
Kieran Trippier was outside
the box, the laws state that a
penalty can be awarded if a
foul continues into the area.
Yet in most cases, a ref
would have called free-kick.
Son converted the penalty,
only to have it ruled out after
he stopped midway through
his run-up with about five
players encroaching in the box.
VAR confirmed the decision
was correct.
Son rightly got booked and,
to make matters worse for
Spurs, Rochdale unbelievably,
went up the other end and
scored.
Stephen Humphrys delivered
a fine control and finish after
Juan Foyth failed to cut out
Andrew Cannon’s ball over
the top.
But just 72 seconds into the
second half, Llorente lifted the
ball over Josh Lillis to put the
hosts back in front. Llorente
then made it 3-1 by turning in
Moura’s cross.
The Spanish striker sealed
his hat-trick with a header and
Son scored from close range
for 5-1.
And
Kyle
Walker-Peters
looked
understandably
delighted after netting his first
Tottenham goal in the dying
seconds of the game.
At the end, Rochdale boss
Hill and his players rightly
received a standing ovation
from their fans.
Despite
having
so
many
games in hand, they face
a massive battle to avoid
relegation to League Two.
Spurs, meanwhile, are into
the last eight and are dreaming of, er, Wembley. Again.
Meanwhile, fans will keep

in two Spurs ‘goals’

The system is being
trialled in the FA Cup
before potentially being
rolled out fully in the
Premier League.
But Pochettino added:
“We have the best referees in the world and
don’t need too much.
“Football is about
making a mistake. Like
us, the ref can make a
mistake. We understand
football in this way.
“That’s why the referee should be the boss
on the pitch and have
the last word — always.
“I think we all agree
after this game that,
maybe, it is too early to
bring in the system for
next season.
“We need to respect
the fans. You are going
to kill that emotion that
makes fans feel happy.
“Otherwise you say,
OK, I am going to watch

Dale boss Keith Hill
said: “The confusion
added to the excitement.
“But we must come
up with a way for people
in the stadium to know
what’s going on.”
Ex-Prem referee Mark
Halsey blasted: “It was
a shambles. Under the
protocol, VAR officials
are correct to check
all goals.
“VAR can alert the ref
to a potential clear and
obvious error in the
build-up to the goal.
“But it wasn’t a clear
and obvious foul by Llorente in the first incident. The VAR should
tell the on-field ref there
is a possible foul and, as
per protocol laid down
by the FA, the ref makes
the final decision.
“So he has to view
the incident on the TV.
It was a massive error.”

PSG last night confirmed
their £198million worldrecord signing needs surgery after cracking a bone

His absence is a huge

PSG are 3-1 down after
the first leg in Spain.

“His treatment will last
six to eight weeks.”
Neymar also twisted his

PSG confirmed: “A joint
decision has been taken
between the medical staffs
of both Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team that Neymar will

Exclusive
interview
with Ruud Gullit.
PREM
By MARTIN
BLACKBURN
PEP GUARDIOLA believes
Sergio Aguero benefitted
from some tough love as
he gets ready to enter the
200 Club.
The Argentinian forward, 29,
stands on 199 Manchester City
goals ahead of their rematch
against Arsenal at the Emirates
tonight.
His opener against the Gunners in the Carabao Cup final
at Wembley on Sunday was his
30th of what is shaping up to
be his best-ever season at City.
Last term, he managed 33 —
meaning he has made a huge
contribution to Guardiola’s two
years in charge.
Still there are reports the
manager does not really rate his
star man and his interest in
Alexis Sanchez was well known.
At
the
weekend,
Aguero
referred to Pep as ‘the most
demanding boss he has ever
played for’.
And Guardiola admits he has
been hard on the forward at
times — but maintains he has
done it for a reason.
When told about his striker’s
milestone, City’s boss said: “199?
Wow! We’re delighted with
what he’s done for two
years, with the goals he
scored and the
way he helped
us
with
and
without the ball.
“I
am
so
demanding with
him because I think he can do
better. It’s not for any other
reason — it’s to help him.
“He has to know that he has
to play good to be in the team,
it’s the same for everybody.
“The only way to keep going
in three competitions is to be
like this.”
Aguero became City’s all-time
leading scorer on 178 when he
found the net against Napoli in
early November.
Yet such has been his fine
form, since the turn of the year
in particular, that he is already
looking at the next target.
The Argentine has somehow
avoided the individual honours
during his seven years at the
Etihad — never even making
the PFA team of the year.
But Guardiola reckons the
South American’s quality is
well known around the world —
and with his team-mates.
Guardiola
said:
“I
think
English football, European football, world football has a big
recognition about what Sergio
has done over many years.
“He’s one of the best strikers,
of course. The best recognition
you can have is from his mates
and he has it.
“I am delighted with the
goals he has scored so far. He
has three months to score more
and more goals.”
Guardiola

the
Premier League title is his
main aim this season.

From Back Page
prepare for the most
important three months of
Wenger’s 21-year reign at
the club.
Mertesacker, who will
become Arsenal Academy
manager at the end of the
season, told the squad
they must now thrash out
their differences.
Wenger, 68, is again
under huge scrutiny ahead
of tonight’s rearranged
Premier League fixture
against leaders City at
the Emirates.
Mertesacker now fears
morale is at breaking
point after a damaging
North
London
derby
defeat, followed by losses
against Swedish minnows
Ostersunds and then City.
Frenchman Wenger —
who has a contract until
the end of next season —
was still bullish about his
future yesterday.
He said: “We were not
in the final by invitation,
winning is not guaranteed.
“I am quite amazed it’s
such an earthquake we
lost a final — it means
that we have got our fans
used to going to Wembley
and winning.
“I have been here for 21
years
and
I
always
respected my contracts,
so I am quite amazed that
you ask me about it.
“My position is the least
of my worries.
“I am just amazed
because I have been here
for 21 years and I turned
the whole world down to
respect my contracts.
“I am an employee
and I give my best for the
club that I love.
“The decision on when
to leave has technically
always been mine — and
that will remain. It’s part
of my job.”
Gunners’
£23m hit
By MARK IRWIN
ARSENAL’S
failure
to
qualify for the Champions
League has already cost
£23.4million this season.
And they are braced for
another big hit as the club
sits ten points off the
Premier League top four.
Half-year financial results
to the end of November
last year showed football
turnover falling to £167.7m
from £191.1m.
In the same period, the
wage bill rose by £13.2m.
Yet Arsenal still reported
a £25.1m pre-tax profit,
thanks largely to sales
including Kieran Gibbs and
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Chairman
Sir
Chips
Keswick said: “This has
not been the easiest of
campaigns but we are all
working hard to ensure a
strong finish.”

Wenger, even with those three

NOT N-ICE . . . Mertesacker and Co brave ‘Beast From East’
of Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final,
the mental disintegration among the
players wearing those red shirts, was
further evidence of that.
This lot are born losers.
They are miles off City — Arsenal
will be 30 points behind in the league
if Pep’s men win at the Emirates
tonight — and there is no chance of
them bridging the gap under Wenger.
A one-off result beating City, as
they did after extra-time in last
season’s FA Cup semi-final, would not
get Wenger off the hook any more.
It has gone way beyond that after
those painful defeats to Tottenham,
Ostersunds and City.
Wenger still believes, but everybody
else at the Emirates and around that
training ground is deserting him.
Gazidis has brought in new head of
recruitment, Sven Mislintat, legal and
commercial expert, Huss Fahmy, once
of Team Sky, and Raul Sanllehi from
Barcelona as head of football relations.
And Silent Stan’s kid Josh Kroenke
is now living in London carrying out
a review of the club. Wenger’s power
is not what it was.
Frenchman Wenger said: “You have
to accept City are a quality team.
“The fans knew at 3-0 there was no
way back — but if it was 2-1 they all
would have stayed.”
Instead, they turned their backs on

LIN
ON THE SLIDE . . . Koscielny gets stuck into Mkhitaryan
them. They could not get out of the
place quick enough after David Silva
scored City’s third following 65 toecurling minutes watching Arsenal wilt.
If City score first tonight, it will
not be long before those fed-up
fans are on Wenger’s case again.
To his credit, Wenger brazens it
all out — fronting up when every
former Arsenal player is queuing up to put the boot in.
Ian Wright, Thierry Henry,
Tony Adams and the rest of
the gang openly challenge
his authority these days,
questioning Wenger’s ability
to master his art.
The Arsenal boss added:
“In life you focus on the quality of your job — how well you
commit and how hard you work. You
try to master what you can master. My
job is to protect the players and get
them to focus on the next performance.
“I
am
responsible.
I
get
the
plaudits when it goes well and take
the bad when it does not go well.”
It is not going well at the moment.
Yesterday, Wenger was trying to
convince himself as much as anybody
else he has earned the right over the
last 21 years to have another go.
It is a crying shame for him that
others do not see it the same way.

Talks are progressing
but
the
decision
belongs to him and we
have to respect that.
“Our desire has been
clearly expressed and
numbered
and,
after
that, the player has to
find satisfaction as well.”
Fans’ favourite Wilshere
is
particularly
hurt by Arsenal’s stance
because he worked hard
to prove his fitness after
suffering serious injury
problems in the past.
He was even ordered
to undergo a full medical by the club before
they would make him a
new offer, a test which
he has easily passed.
Wilshere
completed
his 20th match of the
season during Sunday’s
Carabao Cup final and
has missed only one
game through injury.
He is three years
younger than both Ozil
and
Mkhitaryan
and
two years younger than
£60million record-signing Aubameyang.
Wilshere has been at
Arsenal since he was a
nine-year-old schoolboy
and wants to extend his
stay — but not on the
terms currently offered.
With his contract due
to expire at the end of
the season, he will be a
free agent in June. And
he is now able to talk to
clubs across Europe with
other Premier League
sides certain to be monitoring the situation.
THIERRY CAN
PEP ’EM UP
By JORDAN DAVIES
THIERRY HENRY could be the Pep
Guardiola of Arsenal — says exBarcelona president Joan Laporta.
The Gunners legend, 40, is currently
part of the Belgium coaching team but
admitted it would be a “dream” to manage his old club.
And with boss Arsene Wenger’s future in doubt after
their 3-0 defeat to Guardiola’s Manchester City in the
Carabao Cup final, Laporta thinks Arsenal could do
worse than follow Barca’s lead.
Spaniard Guardiola has excelled since swapping the
pitch for the dugout at the Nou Camp in 2008.
Laporta said: “The same requirements we were appreciating in Pep Guardiola when we decided to put him
as a coach of the first team, Thierry has many of them.
“These kinds of people don’t need the extended period
others need to be a great coach. He knows Arsenal, the
supporters, and he’s a guy that deserves everything he’d
like to achieve. He could be a very good coach.”

BAFFLING . . . Conte subs Hazard
Courtois
boss dig
By JORDAN DAVIES
THIBAUT COURTOIS has openly
criticised Antonio Conte’s tactics
in Chelsea’s damaging loss to
Manchester United.
The Blues keeper admits he
was shocked by his manager’s
decision to take off Eden Hazard
at 1-1 with 17 minutes left.
Jesse Lingard headed United’s
winner just two minutes later
— a result that moved Jose
Mourinho’s men second and left
Chelsea outside the top four.
Conte said the decision to sub
his star player at Old Trafford
last Sunday was a tactical one.
But a frustrated Courtois questioned his under-pressure boss.
The Belgium stopper, 25, said:
“I have no explanation for the
substitution.
“I did not expect it but it’s the
manager’s choice. He’ll explain it.
I can’t look into his head.
“Of course, you want players
like Eden for 90 minutes on
the pitch. He can always bring
something extra.”
Chelsea now face an uphill task
to finish in the Champions
League places — and are in
danger of dropping further points
when they face Manchester City
at the Etihad on Sunday.
After seeing defensive lapses
cost them in their 1-1 draw with
Barcelona and 2-1 loss to United,
Courtois urged his team-mates to
get back to basics.
He added: “After our goal, we
conceded a counter-attacking
goal just like last Tuesday.
“In the second half we had less
of the ball, but even then we
should never have lost.
“If you do not do the small
things well in top matches, you
lose, which is what happened.”
He’s Scott
to be star
NEMANJA MATIC has hailed Scott
McTominay as “amazing”.
Manchester United’s academy
whizkid McTominay, 21, has
forced his way into the first team
with some dominant displays.
He was even selected ahead of
£89million record-signing Paul
Pogba for last week’s Champions
League clash in Sevilla.
Two more run-outs against Huddersfield and Chelsea have seen
him nominated for United’s player
of the month — alongside David
De Gea and Romelu Lukaku.
After their 2-1 comeback win
over Chelsea on Sunday, Matic,
29, said: “He is amazing. He is 21
and to play like that and control
the game like that is impressive.
He will be a big player for United.
“When I came to Manchester
from Chelsea, I saw within a few
days he would be a top player.”
Now McTominay is at the centre of an international tug-of-war
between England and Scotland.
The Lancaster-born midfielder
has Scottish ancestry through his
grandparents. Three Lions and
United star Chris Smalling added:
“He has stepped up to the mark.”

WEBSITE WEEK
LOSING her job when she was pregnant
was bad enough – but when Clare
McDougall’s husband was made redundant
as well, she knew she had to get to grips
with their cash.
The result is the easy-to-use blog
MyMoneyCottage.com.
Packed with simple tips for saving and
making money, it’s the ideal introduction to
managing your family finances.
Clare explains: “As a mum of three, there
is always something somebody needs.
Quite often it’s an unexpected expense.
Over the last few years I’ve worked hard to
boost our family income and make some
savings in order to stretch the pennies that
little bit further.”
Here are Clare’s top tips for families living
on a tight budget:
You need a side hustle. Hardly any
families can rely on just one income
stream any more, or even two – so make
sure you find a way to make extra money. I
do lots of side hustles but if you only have
time for one, pick something you enjoy. It
might be mystery shopping, reselling
!
second-hand goods, running an Etsy
shop . . . the list is endless.
Make a meal plan and never deviate from
it. We’ve saved a fortune just by planning
ahead each week. Write out the meals you’re
going to have, then use that to create a
shopping list. Stick to that list and you will
save.
It may seem simple but know your
budget. So many people get into debt
as they haven’t worked it out. Take an hour or
two to assess income against outgoings as it
will inform everything else you do.

The Mrs
Crunch Lunch
in the
every week
Roast lamb with leeks and tarragon
(Serves eight)
YOU NEED: 2kg lamb leg roast; 3 leeks, thinly
sliced; 100g butter; 1 heaped tbsp fresh tarragon
or rosemary, finely chopped; 2 cloves garlic,
finely chopped; salt and pepper; 250ml white
wine; 1 kg baby new potatoes; 2 tbsp plain flour;
300ml lamb stock, from a cube; 25g mint,
chopped; 2 tbsp capers.
METHOD: Remove the lamb from the fridge one
hour before cooking.
Cook the leeks in half of the butter, over a
medium heat, for ten minutes. Add tarragon – or
rosemary – after five minutes. Take leeks off the
heat and stir in the garlic and season, with salt
and pepper.
Leave to cool.
Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6. Cut
four deep incisions in the lamb, in between the
string so that the lamb holds its shape. Push the
leek mixture into all the incisions and rub in
thoroughly.
Place the remaining leeks on the base of a
large roasting tray and put the lamb on top.
Season well and pour over the white wine.
Cover with foil and cook for ten minutes
before reducing the heat to 180C/350F/Gas
Mark 4. Cook the lamb for two hours
20 minutes, removing foil halfway through.
Set the lamb aside to rest for 15 minutes,
covered in foil. Meanwhile, cook the
potatoes, according to the instructions on
the packet. Put the roasting tray over heat
or transfer the juices to a pan. Stir in some
flour and cook for a minute, then add the
stock. Bring to a simmer, stirring all the time.
Check the seasoning.
To serve, melt the remaining butter, and stir in
mint, capers and seasoning. Spoon over the
potatoes. Carve lamb and serve with gravy.
