Loch Ness 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. By TOM NEWTON DUNN 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”.

Addressing Westminster journalists, the PM said: “We know Jeremy has some concerns about press ownership in Britain. “Of course, that didn’t stop him appearing on the Iranian state-owned Press TV for years, taking a fee from a broadcaster under the command of the Ayatollah.” Mrs May also ribbed her own MPs, after culture secretary Matt Hancock released a smartphone app. She joked how a Boris Johnson app would be “great for extending your vocabulary — but it does contain some adult content”, while: “The Philip Hammond app is like a dryer, less frivolous version of LinkedIn.” We pay for your stories Call: 020 7782 4100 or our Manchester office on: 0161 9355351 SAT 2˚ PM raps Corbyn’s Iran pay The Sun Says — Page Ten MAJOR REVOLT CALL MIGRANTS ‘DEAL’ RAP GLASGOW Earlier, furious MPs accused the EU of trying to annex Northern Ireland after eurocrats published a draft legal text insisting the country follows customs union and single market rules.

Former Brexit Minister David Jones said it amounted to “the annexure” of Ulster. It also emerged Mrs May warned Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson he faced the sack if he published in full a letter he wrote to her arguing the Ulster border could be hardened. The EU also proposed Brussels could help monitor the Ulster customs border, giving eurocrats powers within the UK.

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 up.” Medicine panic buy HEALTH chiefs fuelled panic-buying by urging the public to stock up on food and medicine. Public Health England also told people to watch weather forecasts and keep the central heating on. Dr Thomas Waite said: “With more cold and snow on the way, now’s the time to think ahead. Consider what you need to stock up on. Do you need food or essential supplies such as medicines?” ‘School’s off’ hack PRANKSTERS hacked a school’s social media yesterday to claim it was closed in the snow — despite being open. The message was circulated by students. But so many parents then logged on to Southfields Academy’s website to doublecheck that it crashed. Officials at the school in South West London confirmed it was a hoax and that its 1,300 pupils were expected to come in for classes. LONDON lUK FACES WORST SNOW IN 27YEARS lMET WARNS IT’S A ‘DANGER TO LIFE’ BRITAIN’S worst snowstorm for almost three decades was due to hit this morning — bringing a freezing whiteout set to last for 36 hours. Traffic, trains and planes will come to a standstill, while thousands of schools will be closed in a repeat of yesterday’s chaos. As the Met Office issued its first By PAUL SIMS, Sun Weatherman red warning — meaning a danger to life — the Ministry of Defence has put three Army battalions on standby to assist. The Red Cross has said it is setting up respite centres. Experts say the freeze could cost the economy £2.5billion each day it lasts through loss of productivity, with staff unable to get to work or forced to stay home to care for kids. Today — the first day of meteoro- logical spring — is set to be the coldest March day since records began with temperatures in some areas unlikely to get above -5C. Harsh Siberian winds from Storm Emma and the remains of the Beast from the East will make it feel like -15C with snow and 55mph gusts. While polar bear Victor enjoyed snowbathing at Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, above, there were growing fears rural communities could be cut off for several days by snowdrifts and power cuts. More than 2,200 homes in the South West were already without power, along with 470 in the Midlands and 300 in the North East. The Met Office’s chief forecaster Andy Page said: “Widespread snow is expected to develop through Thursday, accompanied by strong easterly winds, leading to drifting of lying snow in places. “Around 10ins is likely to fall quite widely, with the potential for up to 1GM Thursday, March 1, 2018 ...............

Hundreds of train services were axed, major roads blocked and dozens of flights grounded. Police in Lincolnshire declared a “critical incident” as scores of crashes paralysed parts of the county. A satellite image of Great Britain showed it almost entirely cloaked in snow as more than 4,000 schools closed their gates — and kids headed for parks with their sledges. All outpatient appointments were cancelled at hospitals in Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole while clinical staff were urged to give up days off to help ease chronic staff shortages. Public Health England has issued a level three Cold Weather Action alert — one step below a national emergency. Its boss Dr Thomas Waite urged the nation to “stay warm” and stock up on essentials — sparking fears of another run of panic-buying at the shops. He added: “It may be harder for some people to get out later this week when more snow arrives, so if you know someone at risk, someone with heart or lung conditions, young children or someone who is over 65, LONDON KEY Severe weather risk possible Potential risk to life and property Risk to life likely TOMORROW HIGH LOW -1°C -2°C Flake Britain . . . satellite image of UK snow storms Picture: NEODAS / UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE GLASGOW please take the time to check and see if there’s anything they need.” Age UK also urged people to keep an eye on elderly relatives, friends and neighbours.

Figures for 2015 — the last full year for official data — showed 239,020 opposite-sex couples got hitched. That was down 3.4 per cent on the year before, and amounted to By GREG WILFORD 21.7 marriages for every 1,000 single men in England and Wales. The women’s figure was 19.8. It was the lowest ratio since data collection started in 1862. There were 6,493 marriages between same-sex couples — the first full year for those figures. There was one age group where the wedding rate bucked the trend — women aged 45 or over and men aged 50-plus. Nicola Haines, of the Office for National Statistics, said: “There has been a gradual long-term decline since the early 1970s.” The new figures also show the average age of brides has topped 35 for the first time.

The two mums took the fight over the four-yearold to appeal after a family court judge backed the grandparents. The pair, who were accused of freezing out the lad’s dad, argued such contact was not “essential”. Yesterday the appeal court backed the earlier judge, who ruled that letting the boy see his grandparents would help him understand the “big picture of his birth story” and “sense of identity”. Lord Justice Peter Jackson yesterday called that “admirable”. The two women have split since the boy was born. But they continue to co-parent him, the court heard. Haven’t I Cin you before?

So yeah, I guess we wait a couple of months and we can hit the ground running.” Meghan’s remarks were made as she sat next to the Duchess of Cambridge. Pregnant Kate, who infuriated some by swerving a call to wear black in support of victims at last week’s Bafta awards, stayed mum and smiled at Meghan’s words. The Suits star, wearing a £1,400 Jason Wu dress, did not spell out which projects she would be working on. But she said: “I often hear people say, ‘We’re helping women find their voices’ and I fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find a voice. “They have a voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.” Harry, 33, added: “I am incredibly proud and excited that my soon-to-be wife, who is equally passionate about seeing positive change in the world, will soon be joining us with this work.” Kate, who later visited an exhibition she helped curate at the National Portrait Gallery, said her charity work has changed her as a mother. The mum of two, 36, wearing a floral Orla Kiely dress, said: “I’ve learnt a huge amount. “It’s definitely had an impact on how I look at how I mother and how we work as a family and how we approach bringing up our children.” firstname.lastname@example.org 7 8 ............... Thursday, March 1, 2018 1GM DARK PAST OF THE MAN N WATSON TO KEEP £540K Labour gift outrage By NICK PARKER MILLIONAIRE Max Mosley turned on the press after his sadomasochistic sex orgy with five hookers was exposed. But darker secrets unearthed about the privacy crusader’s past were embarrassing his supporters in the Labour Party last night. Racist language has been found beside his name on a far-Right party’s fading election leaflet. And a deeper probe into his past has shone a light on claims of thuggery and diehard support for his fascist Hitler-loving father Sir Oswald. Here — in The Sun’s Mosley Files — we reveal why everyone in Britain should be wary of the man who is bankrolling a war on our free press. Injuries . . Max with hurt knuckles in Notting Hill, 1958 By LYNN DAVIDSON LABOUR yesterday revealed it will not be taking any more money from Max Mosley as MPs demanded deputy leader Tom Watson repays £540,000 donations. Riot . . Max behind dad in ’61 Jeremy Corbyn’s spokesman revealed they had no plans to pay back the massive sum gifted by the tycoon to Mr Watson’s office. Following yesterday’s racism revelations, the spokesman branded comments made by Mr Mosley as “utterly repugnant”. But Conservatives rounded on Labour for keeping the cash. Senior backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg said: “He ought to pay it back with interest. “Max Mosley is now doubly disgraced.” Fellow Tory Andrew Bridgen hit out: “Returning the money from Max Mosley is the very least Labour should be doing. “They have been cenUnder fire . . .

During the trial, Mosley said he had no recollection of racist leaflets being handed out by supporters of his father Oswald’s fascist Union Movement during a byelection campaign in 1961. Yesterday it emerged Mosley had published a leaflet bearing his name calling for “coloured people” to be deported. It was unearthed by the Daily Mail in archives and threw Labour into turmoil as Mosley has made donations totalling £540,000 to Tom Watson, deputy of Jeremy Corbyn, right. Crown Prosecution chiefs asked police to investigate if Mosley, now a leading privacy campaigner, misled the judge over his fascist past. Last night News UK, which used to publish the News of The World, said it was awaiting the result of the police assessment. It added: “We have instructed our lawyers to consider the impact of the revelations and Mr Mosley’s responses on the High Court Proceedings with a view to considering all our legal options.” Quizzed about the racism claims, Mosley said: “My record in motorsport demonstrates that I do not tolerate racism and, like most people, my political views have changed over time.” THE young Max Mosley stood alongside thugs supporting his fascist father and was caught up in brutal street clashes and a melee at an election rally. Sir Oswald’s far-right Union Movement thugs moved in when trouble broke out between white teddy boy gangs and black locals in London’s Notting Hill in August 1958. West Indian homes were firebombed over several 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. Mosley has always denied being involved in violence on behalf of UM and claims he broke from them in 1963. By NICK PARKER and TOM WELLS 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 the World filmed his fivehour session with hookers sporting German military garb and striped prison camp-style pyjamas. But he won a landmark privacy case in 2008 when a judge ruled that this did not prove that the £2,500 romp was “Nazi-themed.” London’s High Court heard Mosley — calling himself Mike — staged the orgy at a £2million riverside flat on London’s Chelsea embankment after paying the prostitutes £2,500 cash. Mr Justice Eady told the hearing it was clear that Mosley “threw himself into his role with considerable enthusiasm”. But he ruled in favour of Mosley that there was no Nazi element to the orgy, as the newspaper had claimed, and that the story was not in the public interest. The judge decided that although the young women 1GM Thursday, March 1, 2018 ............... OUT TO GAG FREE PRESS Arm extended . . . young Max at 1958 Islington election scuffle lPROOF OF RACIST SHAME ON LEAFLET lCONFLICT AND A LUST FOR KINKY SEX FORMULA One tycoon Max 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. Candidate . . . Hesketh “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.” Mosley’s court victory encouraged him to pump millions into antinewspaper campaigns and to bankroll new press regulator Impress through a family trust. WALTER Hesketh, a celebrated cross-country runner, joined the Union Movement at 28. 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.

Thursday, March 1, 2018 Sun 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. 2GM A FATHER ON WHY SUPER-STRENGTH CANNABIS SHOULD BE CLASS A DRUG CHANGE . . . Monson wants more education on drug use TRAGIC . . . Rupert took his own life after drug psychosis Skunk killed my son ...it’s as dangerous as cocaine or heroin 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 not eject. Kill yourself, these ghouls commanded. One evening he obeyed. Handsome and intelligent, an athlete as well as accomplished artist, Rupert could have been anything besides the sad deranged wreck into which he declined. A father’s grief prompted me to learn more about cannabis, the drug that did for him. What I discovered 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 want addicts for customers, not occasional users. As such, dealers are motivated to sell high-potency cannabis. In accordance with the growing strength of cannabis is a rapid rise of hospital admissions for related cent THC should be considered to be a Class A drug, put in the same bracket as cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and heroin. If it was a class A drug, dealers — and in my view we should concentrate on the psychosis — they have more dealers rather than users of than doubled in the past ten high-potency cannabis — years, putting significant would feel the full weight of strain on the NHS. the law with sentences of Researchers writing in the up to life in prison.

After Palmer was found guilty at Nottingham crown court, Peter’s daughter Carol Todd, 58, said: “We feel health professionals failed him, his family and ours.” Peter’s son Andrew, 54, added: “He should not have been out in public.” Palmer told doctors he had bought a knife and machete before killing Peter on a heath near East Harling, Norfolk. Medical notes revealed he was “thinking of going for dog walkers because they were muttering things about him”. He will be sentenced today.

KNICKERS TO ’EM M&S IN GRANNY PANTS BLOOMER BL OLD NEW FRONT SEAM SIDE SEAM The much-loved original style of pants and the ‘ill-fitting’ reworking Uproar over new design MARKS and Spencer has axed a redesign of its beloved “granny pants” after a backlash from angry customers. The retail giant changed the cut of its bestselling five pack of ladies cotton briefs, moving the seam from the front to the side. But buyers complained the altered smalls, which cost £12 a pack, were tighter around the hip and less comfy. Reviews called them a “downgrade” and begged M&S bosses to bring back the old undies, similar to the big pants worn by Renee Zellweger in the film Bridget Jones’s Diary. One said: “They were a perfect fit before and so comfortable! Please go back to seam on the front!” Another said: “Old version was great, these are awful.” Shopper Dinah Barry even contacted Radio 4’s You and Yours By DANIEL JONES, Consumer Editor to complain. She told the show: “The seam changed so they were raised at the sides. They were also cut so the side of the knickers was a lot smaller.” The photo of the M&S Collection Supima Cotton & Modal No VPL pants on the store’s website initially remained the same, prompting shoppers to unknowingly buy the altered design. But after the barrage of complaints, M&S — which has 27.6 per cent of the r lingerie market — a has promised to bring back the o old style later t this year.

Maybe we should go on a Nick Haridemos hunting expedition. I’ll bring the sunglasses and the rifle. email@example.com ENJOYING the weather? We’re snowed in. I was dispatched on foot, a mile and a half through the icy wastes, to do a spot of panic-buying at the local convenience store. I returned home with eight bottles of wine, 100 Superkings, a Wall’s jumbo sausage roll for the dog and a family-sized Toblerone. Oh, and a scratchcard. “Where’s the bread and the milk? And the soup?” my wife asked, aghast. It’s funny the things people feel in a panic about not possibly having, isn’t it? How could you panic about not having bread when there’s plenty of biscuits in the house? Orgies, race slurs, loadsawonga, hate . . . it’s the amoral Tom ’n’ Max show GOT to say, I’m really beginning to enjoy the Tom ‘n’ Max show. It’s an unlikely partnership, really. But it’s giving me more laughs than Cannon and Ball ever did. And tells you pretty 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 man. Max is Max Mosley, the sinister multi-millionaire former boss of Formula One, who was famously exposed for being involved in a sadomasochistic orgy with expensive whores. It’s just been discovered that Max campaigned in a by-election for a fascist party. His dad’s old party. Dad was Oswald, Britain’s most famous Katy ad’s S-painful SO, Katy Perry – not the sharpest tool in the box, is she? To advertise her concert in Barcelona she used the Spanish coat of arms. Just a BIT awkward. The city is the centre of the Catalan independence movement. It’s the Spanish government which has arrested all of its leaders (with the support of the European Union, of course). So the Catalans aren’t very happy. Katy’s tour is called Witness. Change the “n” for an “l” and that just about gets you there. fascist. A thick-as-two-short-planks toff who loathed Jews and black people. It’s also been discovered that during that by-election, Max Mosley’s name was on vile, racist literature. 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 13 the party from Max. Now you begin to understand why the two get along so well. But the other reason is that both men hate the press. They loathe newspapers. Max has funded a press watchdog 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? THE ODD COUPLE . . . Watson and Mosley DON’T BE SO WET A WOMAN in Louisiana is in trouble – for using her daughter as an umbrella in a heavy downpour. The rain was pelting down so the woman swiftly shoved her young daughter on top of her head. She’s now being shamed on social media by meddlesome bores. Not sure what all the fuss is about. It seems to me an excellent way of using up spare children. And in this heavy snow you could tie one to each boot – makeshift skis! STINKING ATTITUDE OF LEFTIES DO you like the smell of stale body odour? How about clothes which have been soaked in urine for a while? Does that grab you? If you answer “yes” to these two questions, you’re probably a leftie. A new study suggests that right-wingers are far more likely to find the smells of B.O. and wee offensive. Whereas the snowflakes think they’re both lovely. That’s almost certainly because they rarely wash. Best way to frighten a Trot is to show him a bar of soap. A few years back another study showed that left-wingers were far more likely to say that a shape that wasn’t a circle was a circle. It can be a circle if it really wants to be, you see. Gradually we are building up a picture of these deluded, reeking idiots. 14 ...............

Administrators Moorfields will look for a buyer for all or part of the business while selling off stock. Toys R Us, which launched here in 1985, struggled to keep up with shifting trends as Brits piled online or bought toys from supermarkets. The firm’s US parent company filed for bankruptcy protection last year after racking up debts of more than £3.5billion. Insolvency specialist Michael Mulligan, of Shakespeare Martineau, said: “Toys R Us ultimately failed to adapt and did not properly invest in its business.” Shoppers also complained its stores, many out-of-town, were boring. Retail analyst Nick Bubb said: “Consumers won’t miss it when it’s gone.” The collapse comes as many stores face competition from online giants such as Amazon, able to offer next-day delivery at sharp prices.

The vice-chief of defence staff said the UK will suffer “deterioration in the international arena” over the next 15 years if more cash is not made available.

BACKPACKERS’ Ben Harrington, 32 From OLIVER HARVEY Chief Feature Writer, on Koh Tao, Thailand SET like an island jewel amid the glittering blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Tao appears an earthly paradise. By day divers explore its coral reefs with their kaleidoscope of tropical fish, turtles and stingrays. At night its palm-fringed Sairee Beach echoes with intoxicating rhythms as face-painted backpackers party with wide-eyed abandon. Yet for a string of bereaved families whose loved ones never came home, sun-drenched Koh Tao is no utopia. 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 incompetent and corrupt. Heartbroken British mum Sara Cotton, 53, whose bricklayer son Luke Miller was found lifeless in a Sairee Beach swimming pool in 2016, told me: “It’s not paradise, it’s Death Island. ‘He went on dream hol and came back in a box’ Aug 30, 2012: Killed when his moped hit an electricity pylon.

Police say the backpacker from Derby fell 50ft into the water. His parents claim he was murdered. Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24 Sept 15, 2014: Beaten to death on Sairee Beach. Hannah, from Norfolk and David, from Jersey, had met at a hotel on the island. Two men were found guilty of their murders but say they admitted it only under torture. “Thai police say Luke drowned but I have no doubt he was murdered.” Shop supervisor Sara does not believe the explanation given by Thai cops that Luke, 26, hit his head jumping from a roof into the pool before drowning alone. But friends holidaying with Luke say a local policeman initially told them he had been in a fight in another bar days earlier and that they suspected murder. A British inquest later recorded an open verdict into the death of Luke, who lived in Newport, Isle of Wight. Sara added: “Youngsters need to be warned about this island. It’s completely corrupt. Don’t go.” Now another bereaved British mum, Pat Harrington, has amassed a petition with nearly 15,000 names pleading with the UK Government to intervene and investigate the deaths further. She will deliver it to No10 on Tuesday. Thai authorities say her IT manager son Ben broke his neck when he crashed into an electricity pylon on a night-time moped ride in August 2012.

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. firstname.lastname@example.org Pet . . .

SPOT By LORENZO SLOVIENTZOU North London vet I DON’T think cloning is the best thing to do. You will have a similar looking dog, but health wise you can have problems. You are using old cells. The puppy’s DNA will have the age of the dog. We have seen it before with Dolly the sheep. Cloned in 1996, she really died young. I do understand why people want to do it, but they have to be aware of all of the complications that come with it. Really it is not fair on the dogs. 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 week had an almost 50 per cent reduced risk of suffering the disease again for 6 years. An ounce would be 18 cashews, 24 almonds or 14 walnut halves. Prof Charles Fuchs, of Yale Cancer Center, US, said nuts were calorific but added: “Studies show regular consumers of nuts tend to be leaner.” Star rapped by animal lovers 19 Dyson in robot OK BILLIONAIRE inventor Sir James Dyson has said automation will improve our lives “as long as it is a force for good and not evil”.

They typically have less bad cholesterol and healthier heart tissue a decade after a birth, a study says. The reasons are not known but experts say breastfeeding releases the “cuddle hormone” oxytocin which can lower blood pressure. Breastfed tots are also better at fighting illness and infection. Dr Malamo Countouris, who studied 678 mums at the University of Pittsburgh, US, said: “Lactation is important not just for the baby but for the mother.” She said breastfeeding was “cardio-protective” only in mums with normal blood pressure in pregnancy.

HIGH-FLYER Smartly-dressed crook Adams in 2016 VILLAGE HE TARGETED GENTLEMAN AND A THIEF Nursling in New Forest saw crimewave The “gentleman thief” went from village to village on a bicycle and always left his 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.

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.

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.

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 reason Oasis is no longer. Have to 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 came crying at my door.” The blast comes days after Sara waded into the brothers’ feud following Liam’s claim that he didn’t care if Noel or his “f***ing kid” Anais were abused on social media. Sara raged on Instagram: Liam Gallagher @liamgalla gher We were about to go on tour to USA she robbed noels passport f with his head for a Wk he **** * come crying at my door she’s proper dark Liam Gallagher @liamgallagher She’s the reason OASIS is no longer have to put it out there she’s DARK “His f***ing kid?

Please, God, you have dropped dead by the time my kids are on social media.” But Liam, below left, has now tweeted of Noel and Sara: “Him and her are like Fred and Mary [Rose] West, wishing people get 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. RIH’S GUCCI COUP NOT even Joey from Friends showed this much love for a brand when he dressed head to toe in Porsche gear on the sitcom.

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. LIE 17: Sex hinders performance C CLARKE finds d relationship y ylor what the es e are when it ng n laid. LEGENDARY boxer Muhammad Ali famously abstained from sex for two weeks before a big fight, and many footballers swerve nookie so they can play better in matches. 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.

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.

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. r virginity when you e right? Wrong. en, h been thought for has e epresent a woman’s g that it is a fleshy ght d during the first time vaginal intercourse. However, the seal is actually formed in female embryos and dissolves before birth, according to doctors Brochmann and Stokken Dahl.

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. 31 32 ...............

She plays Claire and has sex with young Luke (former Skins star ALEXANDER ARNOLD) as he knows where her missing child is.

I need you to f*** me and then tell me where my daughter is.” That’s one way to get answers. l DAN WALKER will have to perfect the art of the power nap. The BBC Breakfast presenter, who has to get up at 3am for work, has bagged a gameshow called Chase The Case. The series, his first away from breakfast and sport duties, sees contestants trade general knowledge for information in a bid to access locked briefcases full of cash. It’s part of the Beeb’s latest daytime line-up, announced yesterday, which also includes ORE ODUBA quiz Hardball, a format where contestants have to answer questions while being chased by a giant ball.

Paddy no likey this WIFE CHRISTINE JOINS TACKY SHOW IF PADDY McGUINNESS hoped things would quieten down following his recent marriage crisis, he’s heading for disappointment. The Take Me Out host’s wife Christine has signed up for tacky ITVBe show The Real Housewives Of Cheshire, and will appear in the new series. The model’s decision to let cameras into her home comes after she was devastated by photos of her husband with his NICOLE arm around singer APPLETON. A TV insider said: “Christine has been given the chance to be in the spotlight. She’s been through a tough time since feeling betrayed by Paddy and is looking forward to a new focus. “It’s not great news for Paddy who’s seen enough of his private life scrutinised. She’s already filmed some scenes.” The fly-on-the-wall series, which returns later this month, follows women from the welloff “Cheshire set”, including footballer’s wife Tanya Bardsley and designer Dawn Ward. The series has already become notorious for bust-ups between the cast and their pals. Paddy, pictured with Christine, found himself in the dog house last month after being photographed out with former ALL SAINTS singer Nicole in London. It provoked Christine to post on social media hinting at her heartbreak, though the pair now seem on good terms.

To find how my problem page works, see thesun.co.uk/deardeidrefaqs 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 topic4today CHEATING celebs go into costly clinics to deal with “sex addiction”. The rest of us get labelled as cheats. But are some of us genuinely hooked on sex? My e-leaflet Addicted To Sex? can help. For a copy, email me or private message me on my Facebook page. email@example.com 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. Families Need Fathers can offer advice and support (fnf.org.uk, 0300 0300 363). Dear Deidre MY ex suffered so much in the past, all that pain tore us apart but I so want her back. We first became friends 12 years ago, when we were 18 and working together. She told me that she’d been abused by her uncle when she was a kid. We lost touch but I heard she had later been married and widowed – twice. We met up again last June but she was suffering from depression and anxiety. We Dear Deidre I HAD an affair and the sex was so much better than sex with my husband at home. I’ve been married for eight years and our sex life at first was just fine. The only snag was that I never reached climax. He’s 44 and I’m 42. My affair lasted a year and the sex was just brilliant, a shot in the arm, but I knew it was wrong. Now I’m back being faithful to my husband but we have the same problem.

I don’t know what to do. 0 DEIDRE SAYS: Cheating isn’t the answer. You need to find out what worked with your lover that’s missing from sex back at home. If it’s something practical, show your husband how he can improve. But it could be something psychological that’s making the difference – that you feel sexier as a mistress than a wife.

Or follow me on Twitter: @deardeidre Continues tomorrow WITH MY HUSBAND 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 nearing the end of a sad life while, with luck, you have great times ahead. Find support for you both from Macmillan Cancer Support (macmillan.org.uk, 0808 808 0000) and look to the future, not the past. WORKSHY FELLA IS LEECHING 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. If you’re frightened of him, start by talking to the National Domestic Abuse Helpline (0808 247 2000) or see womensaid.org.uk.

Thursday, March 1, 2018 ................ Edited by JOELY CHILCOTT Are you too pushy ...or a pushover? TRY OUR FUN QUIZ TO FIND OUT WHAT YOU ARE WALLFLOWER women are too timid to ask for a pay rise, according to famously shy Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan. He says women ought to be more aggressive in the workplace. While women worry about annoying their bosses by being too pushy, men are demanding, forceful and don’t care about rejection, said Piers, 52. We don’t always agree YES Your friends invite you out for drinks but you don’t fancy it. Do you go anyway? There’s an empty checkout at the supermarket but someone else makes a beeline for it.

YES NO NO Have you ever sulked at your other half, friends or boss if you dont get your own way? YES NO You have an annual leave clash at work and you requested it last. Do you continuously dispute it with your boss? YES PUSHOVER PERFECTLY PUSHY TOO PUSHY WHATEVER you do, you always feel others can do better. You bend your decisions if someone disagrees and give in to louder suggestions. While you are sensitive and caring, this is often used against you. You like to please people and this often means neglecting your own needs. This can lead to 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.

Thursday, March 1, 2018 1GM DAILY WE all want more sleep but it is not just about the amount we get . . . HOW we do it is vital. A bad sleeping position can lead to back or neck problems. Sleep expert and chartered physio Sammy Margo explains: “I’ve spent years treating people who have damaged themselves sleeping in bad positions, on bad pillows and on bad beds. Sleeping on your front is a TIPS TO HELP YOU GET recipe for neck problems. Tummy sleepers are the ones who often end up with neck or back trouble. “Even if you don’t suffer now, correcting your sleep position could safeguard you from pain in future.” Here, Sammy and other medical experts tell LYNSEY HOPE all about the best positions to sleep in. Hips 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. But the thing I miss the most is somebody to eat a grown-up meal with or talk rubbish to when MasterChef is 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. l Visit thesun.co.uk/fabulous to enter our Mum of the Year competition. “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.” How to sleep to feel good 1GM Thursday, March 1, 2018 ............... SIMPLE FOODS A HEALTHY NIGHT’S KIP SALMON WITH WASABI HERE are some of the best pillows to plump for, clockwise from top right: Dreamtime Orthopaedic V-pillow, £25.99, amazon.co.uk; Good Life Guide memory bead pillow, £29.99, goodlifeguide. co.uk; Zeeq Smart Pillow, £149, rem-fit.co.uk; Orthologics bed wedge, £31.95 at amazon.co.uk; Putnams knee pillow, £16.95, tesco.com Pick of the PILLOWS 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. lSee myrelationshipwithfood.com. 39 40 ............... email: rob.gill@the - sun.co.uk twitter: @robgilluk Edited by ROB GILL l YOU think it’s chilly out?

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’. LAND ROVER DEFENDER 110 ‘I only wanted ‘Statham hole in roof borrowed it for shooting. for first date £80,000 with Kelly later...’ 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.

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.” Thank you, Vin. And thank you for the ham and pickle sandwich. Branston, of course. WIN JUNIOR JAG DRIVE IN F-TYPE LAST week I told you I had a go in Top Gear’s Reasonably Fast Car.

I had a similar experience nine months ago with my own mother’s will. For years of caring and looking after my mother’s well-being, everything was left to my half-sister. There wasn’t even acknowledgement that my brother or myself even existed. Obviously in the case of Elton, pictured, it’s not about the money. The devastation the snub creates is barely describable.

I cannot understand why the Government always punish the old, poor or disabled, while allowing people who have never paid into the system houses and benefits. In the next election, neither Labour or Conservative will be getting my vote.

ANN-CAROLE CHAMBERLAIN Pevensey, East Sussex SARA JONES Belfast Pay back our heroes’ cash IT is disgusting that Cabinet ministers have secretly taken monies from a pot meant for Forces’ charities to use in their own budgets. £50 LETTER And this £326million — taken from a fund of nearly £1billion made up of fines paid by banks after scandals like the fixing of the Libor lending rate — is only the disclosed figure. I think the Government should be made to repay every penny to the charities that money was meant for. MIKE BROWN Bristol THE raiding of the Libor fund to help bail out the MoD, the Treasury and the Department for Education is despicable. The fund was meant to benefit Armed Forces’ charities, a truly worthwhile cause. So how could the Government justify taking £326million from it in the last five years? Using it to help rectify their ailing budgets was beneath contempt. Tory MP Johnny Mercer is demanding a full inquiry into the scandal and right-minded folk everywhere will fully agree. The sooner the better.

There is a big shift in opinion in Europe and we should be taking advantage of it. CAPPING energy prices will benefit 11million people. Capping speed limits will benefit the planet.

Frankfurt hotel PREMIER INN BOOKS 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 STAFF 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.” 47 Tel: 020 7782 4050 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org £1 BUYS €1.13, US $1.38. BRENT CRUDE $65.90 Edited by TRACEY BOLES DING DONG, AMAZON CALLING 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. wc price of tneusing bough ce finan £10,142 APP PAY UP BARCLAYCARD has seen spending via mobile phone apps and wearable technology rocket.

Meanwhile, spending on bPay — a chip that can be embedded in wristbands, key fobs and even stickers — rose 129 per cent. The most popular spending using contactless was at rail stations, car parks and on sports goods. Belfast had the biggest leap, up 60 per cent. Thursday, March 1, 2018 ............... Average tic t price of newke when boughtcar outright WIMPEY WHACK PROFITS at TAYLOR 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 out buyers stuck in ripoff leasehold contracts. It meant pre-tax profits for 2017 fell by almost 6 per cent to £555million, despite sales rising almost 8 per cent to £3.96billion. Despite the profit hit, boss Pete Redfern was in bullish mood, saying 2017 had been “another strong year” for his firm. Completions were also up last year at 14,842. The company’s shares ended the day down 4 per cent at 186p.

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.” 48 ...............

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.” nJLT NOV CHASE: Bet365 - 7-2 Invitation Only, 9-2 Monalee, 6 Footpad, 7 Modus, 8 Petit Mouchoir, 8 Al Boum Photo, Benatar, 10 Finian’s Oscar, Terrefort DOG TIPS AND SP CHECK nYESTERDAY’s scheduled meetings at Newcastle, Hove, Sunderland and Peterborough were abandoned 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.

Thursday, March 1, 2018 ROCKET Ronnie P O’Sullivan is set to play in April’s World LAURA SETS HER SIGHTS By VIKKI ORVICE ALL eyes will be on Laura Muir as she bids for her first global medal at the World Indoor Championships tonight. But British athletics’ poster girl admits she will be focusing just as much on her studies into the eyesight of wildlife and domestic animals. The European champion, 24, is in her final year of a veterinary degree at Glasgow University. And ahead of the 3,000metres in Birmingham, Scot Muir (right) said: “I think I might take a few notes along to read. “I don’t know what time I will have and certainly I want to focus on the world indoors and do the best I can. “But I’m doing animal ophthalmology — eye problems — next week so I might bring a few things down on that. I’m at a small animal hospital on placement so it’s a bit surreal being there one day and competing at the World Indoors 24 hours later.” GREG RUTHERFORD yesterday withdrew from the long jump over fitness and form concerns. The Olympic, World and European champion, 31, who competed just three times in 2017 as he underwent groin and ankle surgery, plans to focus on the outdoor season instead.

Circuit de Catalunya is deserted yesterday after snow caused Hamilton’s testing session to be scrapped e up EMPTY FEELING . . . two fans huddl From BEN HUNT in Barcelona LEWIS HAMILTON risks being caught cold when the Formula conditions are less valuable than One season roars into action. 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 TOO COLD and his third was axed yesterday due to snow. Formula One teams are limited to just eight days of testing, meaning the fourtime world champ only has today and four days next week — which will be split with Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas — in which to recover ground on his rivals. 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 but I will take it. “I love to drive as much as possible and I definitely have a better understanding because of the mileage. “I’ve learned how to get heat into the tyres which can be a benefit. I’ve learned about the new car and its general behaviour but we still need better conditions to unlock everything and really push the limits.” Bottas won three races in his debut season at Merc and is confident he can run Hamilton closer this time — but ruled out using mind games like Nico Rosberg. He added: “Last year I did not perform on the level I should have and I learned a lot from that. “My average races, or good races, we want to make better and better — so I am focusing on my weaknesses and that’s always the best way to go. “Every driver has weaknesses but rather than focus too much on Lewis I am going to spend my energy and focus on myself and my performance. “I am not going to start wasting my energy on any games.” Tweet @benjhunt ALL OVER . . .

Thursday, March 1, 2018 CRICKETT 2GM BIG BEN’S BACK ACK STOKED Emotional star tastes victory again 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.” The Westgarth family have helped his shattered coach reopen their local boxing gym. Glyn Rhodes was met by bunches of flowers when he arrived to open up the Sheffield Boxing Centre. Rhodes, awarded an MBE in 2012 for services to the sport, said: “I was dreading this day when I had to walk back into the gym. “I want to thank Scott’s family for coming with me. It helped just having them there.” GOTCHA . . . Jos Buttler runs out Colin de Grandhomme 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. Stokes, 26, added: “It was obviously frustrating to watch the Ashes. I went through all the emotions as I would’ve done playing but England beat New Zealand there’s not a lot I can by 6 wkts change about that NEW ZEALAND now.

D RUGBY RUGB UNION N RED ROSE No1 BID JONES . . . abused RANT From Back Page carriage from Edinburgh to Manchester on Sunday. Ex-Scotland skipper Hastings, 56, talked about wanting to “rub Jones’ face in the dirt” in the build-up to Scotland’s 25-13 win — their first over England in ten years. And prop Simon Berghan roared “everyone hates England”. Red Rose boss Jones happily posed for selfies with fans on the train but now vows he will NEVER use public transport again. The Aussie, 58, said: “It wasn’t comfortable but that’s the world we live in. “Also it’s magnified that if you’re in a position of responsibility, you’ve got to be careful what you say. “If you talk about hate and about rubbing people’s noses in the dirt, it incites certain behaviour. And is that the sort of behaviour we want to see? “You’ve got to look after your own safety.” British Transport Police last night confirmed they are also looking into a second incident involving Jones on a train from Manchester back to London on Sunday evening.

The European No1 moved to a career-high 11th, only fractionally behind the four-time Major champion, with his fourth place at last week’s Honda Classic. With McIlroy set to miss the World Golf Championship-Mexico tournament, Fleetwood knows another good finish — in an event he was runner-up in last year — will see him move up at least one spot. The Southport star, 27, who has finished in the top six in five of his last six starts, said: “The next step has to be a place in the top ten of the world rankings — and then staying there. “My philosophy has to be that there’s no slipping back. I want to become a fixture at that level for as long as possible. “I want to be the best player in the world. “There’s no guarantee I’ll get there but it won’t be for lack of ambition or determination. “Fourth place in the Honda was a bit disappointing after I moved into a share of the lead in the final round. “But it was more proof that I can hold my own in big events against the world’s best players.” Muzza in fitness lift By DAN KING EDDIE JONES is giving up sleeping while he works out how England can knock New Zealand off their perch as world No 1. Jones warned Red Rose fans there can be no quick fix after his England juggernaut hit the skids with Saturday’s 25-13 defeat to Scotland.

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.” Tweet @SunJonnyFordham 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 Dubai title this week. 54 ............... Thursday, March 1, 2018 OUT COLD . . . medical staff tend to stricken Jackson Adam thanks clash doctors By VIC HOLLY BARNSLEY’S Adam Jackson has thanked medics for rushing to his aid after he was KO’d at Hull. 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 stretcher. Toral was able to walk off unaided but suffered a jaw injury and was substituted. In a statement yesterCRYSTAL PALACE chief day, Barnsley revealed Steve Parish admits he is Jackson was “sat up already “planning for the talking” soon after being assessed. Championship”.

The Stags need a new boss after Steve Evans quit on Tuesday — before joining Peterborough 24 hours later. Mansfield have said they will announce his replacement today. Flitcroft (above), 44, took over at the Robins in June last year — going on to win 18 of his 35 league games in charge. Swindon sit seventh in League Two, three points and two places behind Mansfield. Flitcroft has also had spells in charge of Barnsley and Bury, who he led to promotion to League One in 2015.

In fact, send us your best ones on a postcard or via email. Winner gets a weekend with Mike Riley. The controversial VAR system was seen in its full glory last night, both the good and bad. It was a fifth-round replay. Then there was another replay — and another replay — but only those watching on TV could see at home. The 24,627 supporters — a fifth of whom came down in horrid weather to support their League One heroes — were none the wiser. In temperatures of -5C, VAR had Tottenham fans boiling with rage. The new aid for referees continues to split English MATCH STATS TOTTENHAM ROCHDALE 63%..............Possession..............37% 11/3.......Shots on/off target .......2/4 4................Blocked shots ................1 7.....................Corners.....................2 12 ............ Fouls conceded ............ 11 3/0 ..........Yellow/red cards ..........0/0 By CHARLIE WYETT 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 QUARTER-FINALS SWANSEA v TOTTENHAM (Sat, Mar 17, 12.15pm, BT Sport 1) MAN UNITED v BRIGHTON (Sat, Mar 17, 7.45pm, BT Sport 2) WIGAN v SOUTHAMPTON (Sun, Mar 18, 1.30pm, BBC1) LEICESTER v CHELSEA (Sun, Mar 18, 4.30pm, BBC1) WHAT A VARCE THE first half at Wembley descended into chaos as referee Paul Tierney and VAR Graham Scott proved the trialled system remains a work in progress. VAR STARTS: 5.32 Lamela taps in but ref Tierney gives a foul after VAR advice. Replays show Llorente appeared to tug at McGahey’s shirt. DECISION TIME: 1min 47sec SPURS 6 ROCHDALE 1 Thursday, March 1, 2018 ............... OF ERRORS SON 23, 65; LLORENTE 47, 53, 59; WALKER-PETERS 90 HUMPHRYS 31 Poch boys survive another replay KILL 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.

And Poch raged: “It was embarrassing. If we are going to kill emotion in football, people who love football are not so happy. “It is difficult to keep focus on the football. I am not sure that the system is going to help.” The first half was delayed as ref Tierney made four referrals to the VAR, which resulted in two Spurs ‘goals’ being chalked off. 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 the game at home.” 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.” SunSport columnist Alan Shearer also tweeted: “VAR you were HOPELESS AGAIN.” 56 ............... Thursday, March 1, 2018 NEYMAR . . . fracture Neymar’s ‘six-week’ KO blow By CARL LONG NEYMAR’S father says the Paris Saint-Germain star will be out for “at least six weeks”. PSG last night confirmed their £198million worldrecord signing needs surgery after cracking a bone in his foot in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Marseille. His absence is a huge blow to the French club, who hoped Neymar, 26, could be fit for Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid. PSG are 3-1 down after the first leg in Spain. Speaking to ESPN, Neymar Sr said: “PSG know they will not be able to count on Neymar for the upcoming matches. “His treatment will last six to eight weeks.” Neymar also twisted his right ankle in the incident and looked to be in tears as he left the field on a stretcher. 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 undergo surgery in Brazil at the end of this week. “He will be operated on by Dr. Rodrigo Lasmar, accompanied by Gerard Professor Saillant, representing PSG.” Sport SUNDERLAND have got back £6million after Jeremain Lens’ loan move to Besiktas was made permanent. The Black Cats paid Dynamo Kiev £13m for the Dutch winger, 30, in the summer of 2015. SHORT Shelvey’s plucky 7 By DAVID COVERDALE JONJO SHELVEY wants another seven-goal thriller at Anfield — but this time with Newcastle winning! Liverpool’s 4-3 victory over the Toon in 1996 is regarded by many as the Premier League’s greatest game, with the same score occurring the following season. Now Shelvey, who was at Liverpool from 2010-13, is hoping for a role reversal on Saturday. The midfielder, 26, who will have a knee injury assessed before the teatime clash, said: “I was only born in 1992, even though I don’t look like it! “But I do remember those games, and hopefully we can replicate it with us coming out on top. “You always want to go back to a former club and win — for obvious reasons.” 1GM H2W WOE E FOR LIONESSES Neville turns water into whine WATER GUY . . . Lionesses manager Phil Neville hit roof over discarded bottle I’m gonna give those girls Vithell when I see ’em! From STEVE BRENNER in Columbus PHIL NEVILLE used to see Sir Alex Ferguson’s infamous hairdryer turned up to the max in the dressing room at Manchester United. Now the new Lionesses boss has unleashed his own — on the very coldest of settings. Nev — a stickler for standards — blew his top when, at the end of England women’s first training session in Ohio, one of his players left a WATER BOTTLE on the pitch. Iron Nev ordered the guilty party off the bus to retrieve the bottle, claiming it was as ‘big a crime as giving the ball away’. Neville kicks off his reign against France tonight in the SheBelieves Cup and revealed: “I’ve tried to raise the bar in terms of every facet of performance and so far what I’ve seen is that they have risen to every challenge I’ve set apart from leaving a water bottle on the training pitch, which I wasn’t happy about. “Doing that is unheard of so we talked about the standards that I want from them as a team, the kind of thing which was instilled into me from my parents, from the managers that I played for. “The little things matter. I’m a stickler for standards. We’re going to be all in it together from the kit man to the security to the media.

In the past, I wouldn’t say we were a joke as such, but people disregarded us a bit. “They didn’t have a huge amount of respect for us as a football team. “They knew we would be physical, we still are, but they didn’t think we could play football. “Now, they’re aware we have more angles to our game.

MAGUIRE . . . natural Puel will Harry up By GRAHAM HILL CLAUDE PUEL is lining up Harry Maguire as the “natural” future captain of Leicester. Foxes boss Puel says he wants Maguire to believe that he can achieve his ambitions at the King Power stadium. The England centre-back is rated at around £50million and has been eyed by league leaders Manchester City. Leicester’s 2016 Premier League title-winning skipper Wes Morgan is now 34 — ten years older than Maguire. And French boss Puel knows he will need to find a successor to take the armband soon. Puel said: “Harry can be the leader of the defence — Morgan at the moment has the captaincy. “But if he can keep this consistency and quality it’s natural he becomes the leader of the team. “Harry has ambition but so do his team-mates, the staff and the owners. “It’s important to continue to build the club with good momentum.” THE No1 TEAM IN FOOTBALL IN PRINT GET the inside track on the EFL tomorrow with our dedicated pullout.

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 revealed the Premier League title is his main aim this season. The Catalan has had a love affair with the Champions League while in charge of Barcelona — winning it twice — 1GM Thursday, March 1, 2018 ............... ARSENAL v MAN CITY HEARO Aguero listened to Pep and roared to brink of double ton THE CLUB SERGIO AGUERO is already Manchester City’s top scorer but is looking to break the 200 barrier in his 289th game. SunSport has compiled the list of the 200-plus scorers for current Prem clubs.

He could face a touchline ban if he continues to support political prisoners in his native Catalonia. Guardiola was charged with “wearing a political message” after last week’s FA Cup loss to Wigan — but then did the same in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final win over Arsenal. However, his stance now appears By MARTIN BLACKBURN to have softened. Guardiola said: “I don’t want to damage my team. “The club know my opinion, it’s as simple as that. They are the bosses. “The club is more important than my personal opinion.” Guardiola will write to the FA before the Monday deadline in a bid to defend himself against the charge. He said: “Of course I’m going to write a letter to explain my position.” GUARDIOLA . . .

Thursday, March 1, 2018 PREMIER LEAGUE MERTESACKER . . . fears TALKS 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.” 1GM ARSENAL v SNOW There will be tears as Arsene goes.. but there’s no way back SNOW-HOPERS . . . struggling Arsenal stars train in blizzard at London Colney ahead of hosting City WHEN it finally happens, the farewell will be a real tear-jerker. A long-serving, loyal member of Arsene Wenger’s staff will help him lug a few items down from his office at London Colney and load them into the boot of his Lexus. Some old VHS videos of German Third Division matches, the evergreen Japanese pot plant that had been plonked on his desk, an Invincibles (2004) mug. The tea leaves make grim reading for Arsenal’s beleaguered manager. It will take more than a chat over a brew to explain the depressing mood hanging over Arsenal’s training ground since they were battered three-zip by Manchester City on Sunday. People are stewing around here. Wenger lost the fans in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley, with barely a soul left in the Arsenal end when ref Craig Pawson blew the final whistle. If they could, they would call time on Wenger. The clock is ticking until chief executive Ivan Gazidis makes his endof-season recommendation to majority shareholder ‘Silent Stan’ Kroenke. Unless Wenger qualifies for the By NEIL ASHTON CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER Champions League by scraping through a perilous Europa League draw, with AC Milan awaiting in the last 16, then Wenger will go from Gooner to goner. It will not be pretty. In fact, it will be pretty sad. Wenger, even with those three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, lost the right to leave on his terms a long time ago. It is shaping up to be a nightmarish finale, with the manager refusing to accept his 21-year spell at Arsenal is finally coming to an end. There are still plenty around — media included — who would dearly love him to pull it out of the bag again by bringing home another trophy at the end of the season. That, somehow, Shkodran Mustafi, Jack Wilshere and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (left) will morph overnight into Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry. Not going to happen.

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 LIKELY LINE-UPS L 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. Tweet @neilashton_ JACK From Back Page find the pen for him. 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.” Hearo — Page 57 59 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.” 60 ...............

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.
