lE-CIGS GET GOVT BACKING
l ‘ALLOW THEM ON WARDS’
‘Ignore
risks to
babies’
By NICK McDERMOTT
By NICK McDERMOTT
HOSPITALS have been urged
to sell e-cigarettes — and even
allow patients to vape in bed.
EXPERTS are encouraging all smokers to
switch to vaping, even
pregnant women.
A US study into e-cigs
in 2016 suggested vape
fumes could harm a
woman’s unborn child.
But Prof Linda Bauld,
from Stirling University,
said: “There is no circumstance
where
a
woman should be discouraged from vaping
instead
of
smoking
where the alternative is
they continue to smoke.”
However campaigners
were against the move
— or allowing vaping
in hospitals.
Joyce Robins, from
Patient Concern, said:
“It is a daft idea. I
don’t think they should
be setting aside spaces
for vaping when there is
no room for beds.
“And with such uncertainty around the evidence, we should not be
telling pregnant women
to use them.”
Public health officials claim the
controversial move would help
boost efforts to quit smoking.
One Brit a minute is admitted to hospital due to cigarette use, with 79,000 in
England killed annually.
Public
Health
England said vaping
was 200 times less
likely to cause cancer
than smoking.
It also found no
evidence
passively
inhaling fumes is a
risk to those nearby.
Officials now want
vaping allowed inside
and outside hospitals.
PHE said in a report
that NHS trusts should
ensure “e-cigarettes are available for
sale in hospital shops”. Martin Dockrell,
tobacco control lead for PHE, added:
“We would certainly encourage them to
make at least some single occupancy
rooms where people can vape.”
The report was compiled by experts
from King’s College London and the
University of Stirling. Ann McNeill, professor of tobacco addiction at KCL, said
only half of smokers know e-cigs are less
harmful.

JUSTICE FIRST
THE civil action is not about compensation but about justice and closure,
said the families’ lawyers Jason McCue
and Matthew Jury.
They said some of the families also
hope their campaign will persuade the
authorities to look again at five other
terrorist incidents Downey is linked to.
The lawyers added: “Perhaps
they’ll inspire other victims
denied justice to come forward and take the fight
to the terrorists. You
can’t put a price on
that and it’s the least the Government
owes them. It must do more than offer
tea and sympathy.”
The lawyers said that despite routinely funding those accused of the
most terrible crimes, the LAA refused
the Hyde Park families five times.
They added: “The first time we applied for legal aid, the agency told us to
approach a veterans’ charity instead.
“It was the equivalent of needing a
triple bypass, only for the NHS to tell
you to write to the British Heart
Foundation for help.”

trade deals are signed.
That may take many
years, leaving the UK

disqualified victims’ families from
getting public money. Meanwhile officials spent a fortune defending jihadis.
We are delighted the Legal Aid Agency
has finally seen sense. That the families
of the four massacred soldiers will get
their moment in court. And that Downey
will face justice after the shameful blunder that ended his criminal trial.
It would not have happened but for
this paper and our amazing readers.

CABINET Remainers will try any trick. The
Chancellor’s latest effort deserved its
short shrift from No10.
Philip Hammond wants to keep some
EU customs union rules until our new
trade deals are ready to roll out.
But that simply kicks the can down
the road. He or a successor could then
argue the new agreements weren’t significant enough to finally cut all ties.
It’s a ruse, in other words, to prevent
Brexit ever really happening.
MPs must all get real. No reasonable
interpretation of Brexit could keep us
tied to Brussels’ rules and handicap a
new independent trade policy. It is the
worst imaginable outcome. To be a success, Brexit must be done in full.
Remainers endlessly argue that
Leavers never voted to leave the single
market or customs union. What cobblers. Both are fundamental to the EU.
What did “leaving” mean if not that?
Naomi nails it
NAOMI Campbell is dead right over the
farcical ban on F1 grid girls.
They’re models like me, she says. And
they love what they do too.
Quite right. These young women aren’t
oppressed by the patriarchy. They don’t
need rescuing. They choose to use their
looks to add glamour to F1, or the darts,
and get decent money for it.
Yet politically-correct killjoys congratulate themselves for liberating them.
From what? Paid work?
It’s Mail bias
A CENTURY of votes for women? Hooray . . .

Millions of women vote for Brexit in

PC CAMPUS CENSORSHIP NO JOKE
By
BRENDAN
O’NEILL
CAMPUS censorship isn’t
funny any more.
Many of us have had a good
chuckle at the authoritarian
antics
of
the
blue-haired,
nose-pierced
offence-takers
who have colonised Britain’s
universities.
We
chortled
as
hypersensitive millennials at more
than 20 unis forbade the
playing of Robin Thicke’s song
Blurred Lines.
We mocked as some student
unions cancelled fancy-dress
parties out of terror someone
might
wear
an
offensive
costume. Like the Cambridge
University students who called
off an Around The World In
80 Days party on the basis
that it is “racist” to wear
clothes from different cultures.
We shook our heads as
students banned tabloid papers
or No Platformed “offensive”
speakers, from Ukip politicians to critics of radical
Islam like Maryam Namazie.
Yet while these campus
moralists might have provided
us with much mirth, it is time
we took them seriously.
Because this joke isn’t funny
any more.
The carbuncle of censorship
on
our
universities
is
a
profound
problem
for
21st-century
Britain.
It
is
churning out a new generation
of intolerant young adults and
they could have a dire impact
on public life and liberty.
This
week,
the
fourth
annual Free Speech University
Rankings were published —
and they make for grim
reading. Every year, the magazine I edit, spiked-online.com,
analyses
university
speech
codes and policies to see how
free higher education is.
The answer? Not free at all.
This year’s rankings show
that 94 per cent of universities
restrict freedom of speech,
through
bans
on
certain
speakers or speech codes that
curtail “offensive” chatter.
Time to stand
up to stupid
bans of the
student Stasi

. . . ‘fascist’ MP Rees-Mogg

Lowest tactics of
new moral army
That leaves only six per
cent of unis that do not
restrict speech.
This is a terrifying state of
affairs.
Universities are meant to be
citadels of knowledge, places
of
thought-experimentation
and open debate. No longer.
Over the past three years,
British
universities
have
enforced 81 explicit bans,
including on student groups
deemed insufficiently PC.
So
last
year,
Balliol
College at Oxford banned the
Christian
Union
from
its
freshers’ fair on the basis its
beliefs — in traditional marriage, for example — would be
experienced by some students
as a “micro-aggression”.
This is one of the lowest
tactics of the new moral army
on campus — to define certain
beliefs
as
“violence”
and
therefore deserving destruction.
Forty-eight per cent of unis
have religion policies that
warn against “offending” faith
groups. Forty-six per cent
have transgender policies forbidding “transphobic” speech.
Bear in mind that the term
“transphobic” covers not only
the verbal abuse of trans people — which we can all agree
is awful — but also certain
moral beliefs, such as that
that there are only two sexes.
You can now potentially be
shunned from campus for
committing the thought crime
of thinking there are two
genders rather than 71, as
some PC warriors claim.
The feminists Julie Bindel
and Germaine Greer have
both

campus simply for saying
there are differences between

men and women. Thirty-seven
per cent of universities have
No Platform policies which
ban far-right people.
But today, almost anyone
can be defined as “far right”.
Witness what happened to
Conservative MP Jacob ReesMogg at the University of
West England last week.
A gang of masked middleclass “anti-fascists” stormed
the lecture room in which he
was addressing students and
screamed “fascist” at him.
These posh Stalinists used
menace to try to silence an
MP. This is the logical conclusion to the new campus censorship — where anyone who
refuses to bow before the PC
mob’s moral strictures can
expect to be shut down.
Young adults who believe
they have the right to live in
a
“safe
space”,
to
glide
through life without encountering a disagreeable idea, will
think nothing of using force
to silence those who offend
them.
Such
unstable
and

narcissistic censorship is bad
for universities — because it
will chill debate — and society.
Soon these stiffs will graduate and many will get big
jobs in politics and the media.
And they will bring with
them their arrogant conviction
that anyone who offends them
deserves to be expelled from
polite society.
Before long, you won’t even
have to visit a uni to experience the tyranny of the new
PC — it will be everywhere.
We must toughen
up young people
What can we do? How can
we hold back the wave of
censorship that is washing
over campuses?
We need to try to toughen
up the young, to encourage
them to see words and speech
as things they should engage
with rather than as threats to
their psychic well-being.
Last year, Jo Johnson, as
Universities Minister, set up
the Office for Students, which
he said would put pressure on
universities to respect freedom
of speech and discourage, or
even outlaw, No Platforming.
This might yield interesting
results. It could help a new
intake of students to realise
that
words
don’t
actually
wound
them
and
being
exposed
to
“controversial”
speakers is not the end of the
world.
But we also need more students, academics and public
figures to stand up to the
Student Stasi. We need more
people to defy their mad bans
and to rebel against their
edicts about what music, ideas
and arguments may appear on
campus.
The student censors have
got away with it for too long.
The
solution
is
nothing
short of a liberal rebellion —
bring back controversy to the
academy and tough luck to
those who can’t cope with it.
Maybe uni isn’t for them.

Booze game on BBC
EXCLUSIVE by DAN SALES
VIEWERS twigged as rugby
pundit Brian Moore slipped
words into his BBC1 commentary to let them play a
Six Nations drinking game.
Boozy fans have to take
glugs when key words and
phrases from a list posted on
Twitter are mentioned.
Ex-England ace Moore, 56, trotted
out a string of them as Ireland
beat France 15-13.
Fans thought it was just chance
— until he even managed to utter
the bizarre jackpot word “covfefe”.
The phrase was once tweeted by
President Donald Trump by mistake and was deemed so unlikely to
be heard that it meant viewers had
to down their drinks in one.
The Welsh fan who came up with
the word list hailed it a “commentating masterclass”. Others who
took to Twitter included
one who joked: “Brian
Moore clearly bored
of this match.”
A source confirmed: “He had
seen the drinking game.”
The
words
only came during
the
first
half — suggesting the BBC also
cottoned on and
curbed his antics.

Cancer’s

THE ageing of the body’s
defence system may play
a larger role in causing
cancer than previously
thought, say researchers.
Their
findings
may
explain why men are
more at risk of cancer.
T cells from the thymus gland, which destroy
cancer cells, decline as
we age. But the gland in
women shrinks slower.
So the key to fighting
cancers may lie in the
immune system rather
than genetic mutations.
The study, led by University of Dundee, looked
at two million cancer
cases. Dr Thea Newman
said: “If we’re right, it
could be a new way to
treat and prevent cancer.”

TIME TO
EVICT BIG
BROTHER
SUMMONING up all the
fake outrage at his
disposal, Celebrity Big
Brother’s Shane J huffed:
“Ann Widdecombe’s
morally conservative
views have been
impinging on
housemates’ behaviour.”
Which was true, they
had and were the main
reason why it was a
relatively good series.
Channel 5 actually
booked someone famous
who was prepared to
stop the others behaving
like just another bunch of
drunken, C-list
scumbags.
Widdecombe was also
the most entertaining
contestant and, at the
risk of pointing out the
bleeding obvious, would
have made a much more
appropriate “year of the

bloke who merely
dresses up as one.
She has, after all,
triumphed over real
prejudice in her career,
rather than the confected
variety Shane J tries to
trade off.
Celebrity Big Brother
wasn’t about to let that
happen, though.

seemed to have a curious

Jealous husband David Horridge,
58, had threatened to put her in a
coma, the court was told.
He spent four months harassing
and spying on her at her salon and
at a gym where he was convinced
she had met her new love.
The mum, in her 40s, went to
police, telling them: “He said if I
had a ‘friend’ he would put
him in a coma too or stab him in
the back.
“David has put someone in a
coma before too. So I take these
threats seriously.
“I’m worried and anxious all

David
is
and
whether he’s watching me.”
A note he left
on her car mentioned graffiti he
had seen on a
wall and how it
needed
to
be
cleaned off with a
corrosive substance.
His wife said: “I
didn’t like the fact
he was going to use
acid. I didn’t like the fact he
could get his hands on acid.’’
She told how on one occasion he
confronted her and her new man.
He yelled outside a flat she had
moved into: “What the f*** are you
doing?”
Horridge had left his car’s handbrake off and had to run and stop
it rolling away.
He also made phone calls to his
wife. In one he demanded to know
how many times she had slept with
her new lover.

SPICE GIRLS TO
BACK THE NEW

POWER STARS
THE SPICE GIRLS reunion could
launch a new record label – and
a new generation of girl power.
The legendary pop group want to
give something back to new talent as
part of their reunion, which I revealed
last week.
New music lover MEL C raised the
idea of signing their own acts through
a Spice music company at their first
meeting in six years at GERI HORNER’s
house on Friday.
And all five members, including
VICTORIA BECKHAM, MEL B and
EMMA BUNTON, were keen on the idea.
My Spice insider revealed: “The girls
all brought their ideas to the table and
that included Mel C raising the
prospect of a Spice Girls record label.
“It went down very well because
they are all excited about backing
up-and-coming talent, possibly even
new girl bands.
“This reunion is all about securing

A SPOOF trailer for a new
Crocodile Dundee movie during
the Super Bowl ads caused
almost as much excitement as
the epic game.
PAUL HOGAN, left, the original
Mick Dundee, made a cameo
with fellow Aussies MARGOT
ROBBIE and CHRIS
HEMSWORTH, as well as US
comic DANNY McBRIDE, right, in
the spot to promote Oz.
But the ad was so popular
there is now a fan campaign to
get it made. I’d watch it, mate.
NIPPLEGATE FEUD STILL
NOT OVER FOR JANET
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and his dancers made
sure on Sunday night there was no repeat of
his 2004 Super Bowl performance, avoiding
any sign of epic wardrobe malfunction.
But I can reveal the US singer had been
hoping to duet with JANET JACKSON, whose
breast he exposed by tugging at her costume
during the infamous set 14 years ago, right.
But his request was rejected by the diva who’s
still hurting from the fact Justin never tried to
make amends for the original onstage flash.
A source said: “She feels Justin has
benefited from the scandal as her career
suffered because of it.
“When his team reached out to bring
them back together at the Super Bowl,
she considered it but pulled out when it
became clear they only wanted her on
stage in a bid to get better viewing
figures.” Justin, who yesterday
announced four UK dates for his
Man of the Woods tour, took
plenty of flak for his performance in
Minnesota, main picture with a dancer and
inset far right, despite it being nipple-free.
He outraged fans of PRINCE by singing
alongside a projection of the legend, despite
the late star once having called the idea
“the most demonic thing imaginable”.
Things were better for P!NK, far left,
who nailed the US National Anthem –
and SYLVESTER STALLONE and AL
PACINO were among fans thrilled,
left, by the Philadelphia Eagles’ win
over the New England Patriots.
Meanwhile DANNY DEVITO
made a joke of himself by
dressing up as an M&M for
an advert, left, and Justin
also got grief as sound
issues marred his set.
Perhaps Janet
was fiddling with
the wires.

Victoria is now open to a series of
concerts,
despite
her
initial
commitment to the project being
dependent on not singing a note.
The band source added: “Initially the
talk about this reunion was more
about endorsements and TV shows.
“But after the meeting there is
growing confidence about a full-scale
tour, at the end of this year or early
next year.
“Mel C still needs to be convinced
but Victoria is on board for the
moment. They’ve been in constant
contact on WhatsApp and on the
phone since the first meeting and are
all genuinely excited.”
I broke the news last week that the
Spice Girls were to re-form with
Victoria for £50million, and have
stayed at the forefront of the story
ever since.
Emma returned to her Heart FM

yesterday
and

for us especially right now, needing a
bit of girl power in the world.”

CAN’T get romance right for love nor
money? Then let Sun Savers help.
This week is our Cheap Dates Week —
when we reveal the savviest cash-saving
advice for treating your loved one at a
reduced rate.
Recent research found a single date
costs on average £127 — so that means
singletons are pumping £5.89billion into
the economy every year.
But Lorraine Adams, at dating website
Lovestruck.com, reckons you can still date
stylishly on a budget.
She says: “J-Lo said, ‘Love don’t cost a
thing’ — and she’s right. A good date is
about getting to know the person, not
flashy surroundings.
“And if you’re strapped for cash, it
makes sense to spend less so you can see
your new love more quickly again.”
Here, we team up with Lorraine to show
you how to date well on the cheap.
Go on a breakfast date. It’s usually
under £10 per person, even in the
poshest restaurants. If it goes well, you
can see your date again in the evening.
Visit a free museum or gallery. These
are always romantic venues and you
can have fun spotting each other’s
doppelgängers in the portraits or statues.
Take a picnic to a local park or
beauty spot. Al fresco romance is
always exciting.
Take a free taster class. Local
venues often run courses such as
salsa dancing or cocktail making. A
group activity takes the pressure off
facing each other and, if it goes well,
you can go out afterwards.
Look for vouchers and deals. This
is not being cheap, it is being
clever with your cash and that is an
attractive trait.
Set your date a fun challenge. Try
a crazy-golf competition or hunt for
treasures at a car boot sale — followed
by coffee or cocktails.

CRISP TEST AS DORITOS GO FEMALE-FRIENDLY
FAINT-HEARTED members of the fairer sex
who fall into a swoon at the thought of eating
corn chips are in luck – “lady-friendly”
Doritos are on the way.
They will be quieter to eat, cause less
mess and the packet will fit in handbags.
Indra Nooyi, boss of Doritos owner
PepsiCo, said of women snackers: “They
don’t like to crunch too loudly in public. And
they don’t lick their fingers generously and
they don’t like to pour the little broken
pieces and the flavour into their mouth.”
The Women’s Equality Party hit out at the
firm for “tired stereotypes”.
So how do women cope
with all the macho
crisps currently
on the market?
We asked our
fair lady AMY
JONES to test
some favourites.
Here she rates
them out of five each

crunch,
handbagsuitability and how
few crumbs they left
on her white gloves,
giving each an overall

Agony . . . Jack Dunn

By THEA JACOBS
A BOY of 17 in agony
with stomach pain and
struggling to breathe died
after being sent home
from A&E with laxatives.
Jack Dunn was told he
had constipation. In fact,
he had deadly ketoacidosis which causes a build
up of acidity in the blood.
Dad Kieron found the
“healthy and fit” student
dead in bed next day.
He said: “It was the
worst moment of my life.
“I believe Jack would
be alive if simple tests
had been carried out.”
Kieron, of Porth, South
Wales, says a doctor at
Royal Glamorgan Hospital
admitted feeling “baffled”.
But the dad added: “We
trusted them.
“When Jack struggled to
breathe the doctor thought
it was anxiety. But it was
his organs closing down.”
The local health board
declined to comment.

But Adrian Harker, 38,
who got his T-shirt after

OF
O DISGRACED ROUND-WORLD YACHTSMAN
By
GRANT ROLLINGS
FOR seven months and
two days, the four young
children of amateur sailor
Donald Crowhurst awaited
the return of their father
from the high seas.
SAIL OF THE
CENTURY . . .
Donald on
his plywood
trimaran
The Devon inventor made
headlines
breaking
speed
records
as
he
piloted
his
plywood boat in a round-theworld race, using self-designed
navigational aids.
He seemed set to win a £5,000
prize — worth £85,000 today — for
posting the fastest solo time, plus
global publicity for his gadgets.
But for the final month there was
radio silence from his leaky vessel,
the Teignmouth Electron.
It was found adrift in the South
Atlantic on July 10, 1969, with
nobody aboard.
Donald’s log books revealed he
had lied about his position in the
race — before apparently taking his
own life.
A new film called The Mercy,
starring Colin Firth as the sailor
and Rachel Weisz as his wife Clare,
explores what drove Donald to such
desperation. Donald’s family and the
actor who plays him believe he
never intended to trick his way to
the prize and just wanted to avoid
financial ruin.
Colin,
talking
about
the
consequences of Donald caling off
the race, said: “We are in no
position to judge. The conditions of
stopping were so brutal.
“That was the kind of pressure,
the solitude and everything you’re
up against. I don’t think anyone can
possibly understand that.”
Donald had mortgaged his house
and his struggling business making
his “Navicator” positioning device to
get the boat built. He faced losing
everything if he quit the race early.
Inspired by Sir Francis Chichester’s 226-day solo circumnavigation
of the globe in 1966 — when he
stopped once — The Sunday Times
challenged sailors two years later to
follow his 27,000-mile route without
a single stop.
He faced risking his life
or financial ruin
Whoever set the fastest time would
get a trophy and the £5,000. Donald,
a rookie of 35, was one of nine
sailors who took on the challenge.
Racing to set off before the
contest’s cut-off date of October 31,
1968, he did not have time to make
the boat’s hatches watertight or
make the self-steering gear secure.
Before heading into the choppy
Atlantic from Teignmouth, Devon, he
wept with fear.
His widow, now 85, recalled: “I
held him in my arms and comforted
him. Neither of us slept at all.
“To Donald, taking care of the
family was everything and he was
desperately worried.”
He faced a terrible choice —
risking his life in an unseaworthy
boat or suffering financial ruin.
He gambled on fixing the 41ft
trimaran boat on the way but left
crucial tools on the quayside.
Prophetically, as he cast off he
whispered to his eight-year-old son
Simon: “Look after your mother.”
Having boasted that his trimaran
could manage 220 nautical miles a
day, he averaged just 130.
In those days, before satellite
tracking,
navigation
relied
on
sextants and the position of the
stars.
Communication
was
via
crackling, delayed radio and Morse
code. Nobody but Donald knew his
true position.
In a reckless moment of what
must have been terrible desperation,
Donald, violently seasick, claimed
via radio to have covered an
incredible 243 miles in a day on
December 10. With the amateur
suddenly a serious contender, a
media frenzy exploded back home.
Five competitors had been forced
to retire, leaving Robin KnoxJohnston, Bernard Moitessier and
Nigel Tetley battling Donald — and
the elements. At Christmas, Donald

‘Hero’ sailor who
lied to world and

claimed to be sailing past Cape
Town in South Africa. In fact he
was passing Brazil. He then cut off
all contact for three months.
Chichester grew suspicious, telling
The Sunday Times the winds were
not strong enough for Donald to
post those times. But his warning
was ignored.
After repairing his boat on shore
in South America — against the
contest’s rules — Donald announced
on April 10, 1969, he was heading
home, his journey almost complete.
In late April Knox-Johnston, who
had started earlier, completed the
course. Moitessier pulled out of the
race, leaving Tetley and Donald to
battle to beat Knox-Johnston’s time.
Then Tetley sank while racing
through a storm in a bid to stay
ahead of Donald.
Sir Robin, now 78, who was
knighted for his feat, told The Sun:
“The moment Tetley sank, Donald
knew his logs would be checked. If
he had come in third, he would
probably have got away with it.”
Knowing his deception would be
exposed on his return, Donald
appears to have cracked under the
pressure. He wrote 25,000 words
including rambling passages about
becoming a “cosmic being”.
He signed off his log on July 1
with: “I have no need to prolong the
game” and: “It is finished — it is
finished. IT IS THE MERCY. The
truth has been revealed.”
Nine days later, the unmanned
Teignmouth Electron was discovered.
Simon Crowhurst, now 57, said:
“My memory was two nuns
coming down the drive and
speaking to my mother
and my mother taking us
to the bedroom I shared
with my brother Roger.
She sat us down on the
bed and said, ‘The boat’s
been found — and he’s not on
it’. Then she broke down in
tears.”
It
is
unclear
what
exactly happened to
Donald.
It
is
PAIN . . . Rachel
Weisz as Clare
thought he took his own life but he
may have been swept into the sea in
an accident.
Sir Robin feels sure it was
deliberate, saying: “If you look at the
logs, this is an absolute tragedy. The
pressure was too much for him.
“Right from the beginning he was
under pressure, with his boat not
being up to scratch, then being
faced with the Southern Ocean,
which will test any man, I can tell
you. I suddenly saw this big (wave)
coming, probably 80 or 90ft,
curling at the top and breaking.
“I thought, ‘I haven’t got time
to get below’, so I climbed up
the decking to get out of the
way. The boat disappeared
underneath me. We call
them watery Himalayas.”
Though he had never
heard of his rival before
the race, he donated his
prize to Donald’s widow.
Sir
Robin,
now
chairman
of
sailing
adventure firm Clipper
Ventures,
wanted
to
keep Donald’s deceit
secret. He said: “My view was, ‘We
have to look after the family.
“There are four kids there — the
eldest is 12. What’s is like to go to
school and have children chanting
‘your daddy killed himself’?
“I wanted it hushed up. A lot of
us looked at it and said, ‘Poor
bastard’.” But the log books were
released
after
the
inevitable
investigation into Donald’s death.
His family wish Donald’s ordeals
could be forgotten.
Daughter Rachel Weber, 55, who
turned six while Donald was at sea,
told The Sun: “It is a disturbing
experience to see the death of a
loved member of a family portrayed
on screen. The Mercy tells the story
of events that affected our family

REECE SHEARSMITH may

episode of Inside No9 would
be its finale one – but this is
not the case.
The BBC has commissioned
another run of the dark
comedy from the twisted
minds of League of
Gentlemen stars Reece and
STEVE PEMBERTON.
Just last Tuesday Reece
panicked devotees when he
tweeted: “Last episode next
week and that’s that.”
But in a statement yesterday
he and Steve, above, said:
“Having tried and failed to
convince the BBC to produce
a full Cheese & Crackers
series (or at the very least a
Summertime Special), we
have reluctantly agreed to do
another series of Inside No9.
“We will once again attempt
to trick, tickle and terrify you –
but not necessarily all at once.
Unless there’s a twist. Which
there won’t be. Or will there?
“Huge thanks to BBC
Comedy and BBC Studios for
their continued support, and
to our loyal fans.”
Sounds confusing to me.

A telly source said:
“Brendan has refused to

be asked to return to the

“But behind the scenes
his attitude towards the

different.

“He’s trying

It’s exactly that sort

Ex’s brother is
my baby’s dad
Dear Deidre
I AM having a baby but the
father is my ex’s brother.
We are madly in love but
he cannot leave his wife
and three kids.
I thought I could not have kids
so it is a major shock to discover
I am pregnant and I don’t know
what to do.
I am 27 and he’s 33. I split from
my ex two years ago but even
then I knew it was his brother I
really wanted. He is the most
handsome guy I have ever met
plus he’s funny, kind and caring.
When I was with my ex I got on
well with his brother’s wife so
even after me and my ex split up
she still invited me over to theirs.
At a party a few months later I
got chatting to her husband. He
asked me to come upstairs to see
the bedroom he’d just decorated
and where he’d installed new
wardrobes.
I
was
gushing
about
how
amazing it all looked when he
took a step forwards and before I
knew what was happening we
started kissing. He said he’s always
fancied me. Nothing happened that

night but he texted me the next
morning and we ended up having
sex in his car.
It was amazing and our affair
has been ongoing ever since.
We meet whenever he can get
away and I always make myself
available as I live for the moments
I can be with him.
His middle child, a seven-yearold boy, has cerebral palsy so life
is not easy for him and his wife
and he’s a great dad. I know the
score and I would never ask him
to leave them.
We never use contraception as I
saw no need. I tried for a baby for
a few years in my early twenties.
It didn’t happen so I convinced
myself I couldn’t have kids.
There’s no doubt though. I did
two pregnancy tests because I
could not believe the result.
I know this situation is morally
wrong but I love him so much.
Now what do I do?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I agree this is a very
difficult dilemma and I can’t make the
decision for you but it’s inevitably
going to lead to emotional pain and
hurt. Have you told him you’re
pregnant?
Have you really looked at how you
feel about this pregnancy? I
understand it feels very special if you
believed you couldn’t have children
but the reality is you may end up as a
lone parent if you go ahead.
Are you up for that? You will face a lot
of criticism from your ex and your
lover’s family too.
I can’t help but feel sorry for your
lover’s wife. Caring for her son must be
so demanding and maybe that is partly
what your lover has been escaping
from.
My leaflet on Unplanned Pregnancy
will help you think this through and
explains where to get help to talk over
all the implications.
Dear Deidre
I AM sick and tired of disappointing my wife because I
cannot last any length of time
when we have sex.
I am 36 and find my problem embarrassing. I suffered
depression a few years ago

have stopped the medication

and feel better in myself.

I no longer have feelings for
him so why do his mixed
messages disturb me so
much? Should I block him?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Even when
we are sure a relationship is
best over, we can still hanker
for the good bits.
Your ex is, at best, being
immature in trying to hang
on to you as well as enjoy his
new relationship.
Tell him to stop or you will
have to block him. Do it if he
doesn’t get the message.

Mum would never accept us.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: There will
be a reason why you are
always attracted to older
women. Is it simply rebellion
against your family, or are
you scared of commitment
so it feels safer to fall for
someone who is unlikely to
have kids with you?
I understand the
pressures but if you believe
she’s the one you won’t be
happy unless you stand up
to any family opposition.

Dear Deidre
MY boyfriend says a girl he

was the love of his life. I am
now struggling with thoughts
about him with this other girl.
I am 22 and he’s 23. We
were together for six months
but broke up for four months.
In that time he met this girl. I
was gutted. Then he called to
say she’d dumped him.
We have got back together
but I am insanely jealous and
hate that someone else got
so close to him. I want
everything to be perfect.
I care too much about what
other people think and even
what this girl thinks. I can’t
get it into my head that we
were apart when it happened.
I keep thinking I can’t be the
girl for him.

back to you when this other
girl dumped him so it’s not
surprising you find the
thought of her threatening.
It’s up to your boyfriend
to make it clear that you are
the only girl for him but he’s
saying she was the love of
his life.
That is so insensitive and
cruel, he doesn’t deserve
you. Tell him that either he
shows proper appreciation
of you or you’ll dump him too.

Emmeline Pankhurst’s female

and men, who have changed

changes have helped liberate
us over the years. Here,
CLEMMIE FIELDSEND looks at
the dress choices that bettered
our lives and wardrobes.
’BOT YOU’LL BE
SEEING IN 2118
AGELESS women, cloned kids and robots at
the photocopier. It may sound like a scene out
of a Hollywood sci-fi movie. But 100 years
from now, it could be the reality.
Here, futurist Dr Frank Shaw, from the
Centre for Future Studies, explains how things
will look for women in 2118.
AGELESS ERA
In 1918 a woman’s life expectancy was around 60
years, today it’s 83. By 2118, new technology and
gene therapy could mean immortality.
Researchers are unlocking the mysteries of
ageing – and getting closer to turning back the
clock. Forget cosmetic surgery and anti-ageing
creams. Genes will be manipulated so women
don’t age at all.
ANDROID WIFE
Housewives will no longer exist. The dirty work
will be undertaken by humanoid robots who will
clean windows, do the laundry and make home
repairs. The 2118 smart home will be all about
quality of life, not an overworked wife.
WORK IT, OR NOT
Future work will be focused around making
complex decisions which require human
ingenuity. It will be a question of how to be human
in a world run by robots. Computers will eventually be able to replicate creative tasks and learn to
create music and art.
WOMEN’S LIB
SWIMWEAR
IN 1907, sassy Annette Kellerman was arrested for wearing a
form-fitting one-piece swimsuit
on a beach in Boston, US.
Despite the intitial furore, the
swimmer’s rejection of the traditional ankle-grazing swim dress
led to the arrival of more comfortable beachwear for women.
Six years on, Carl Jantzen,
who owned a knitting company
in the States, invented the first
two-piece swimwear, a closefitting costume with shorts and
a short-sleeve top. Other variations followed, top right.
Then
in
1946
Frenchman
Louis
Reard
changed
things for ever
by creating a
two-piece number
exposing
the midriff – a
design
which
he named the
bikini.
LINGERIE
During
the
Twenties, women
Women will have smashed through the glass
ceiling long before 2118. Gender equality will have
been established. By 2118, women will have
prominent, influential roles throughout society.
They will have the skills and attributes that will
be crucial to future commercial success.
SEX-BOT
It is likely that dating and sex with androids and
gynoids – male and female robots – will become
commonplace. We won’t be able to tell them
apart from humans.
A robot that works in the same office will understand flirting and humour. Women won’t need
men for reproduction and will be routinely
impregnated by artificial insemination instead.
FAMILY CLONE-IT
If human cloning is accepted, this could lead to
offspring being copied from a parent, a friend or
even a celebrity.
In 100 years, children will interact with
surrogate artificial intelligence (AI) parents in a
number of ways. They will be supervised, taught
how to do maths and entertained by robots.
Imagine a family connected via mind-to-mind
communication, capable of communicating,
sensing, and using each other’s knowledge,
skills and language. Mum really will know what
you’re thinking.
had tired of restricting corsets
and the Cadole company in Paris
developed the “breast girdle”.
During the Thirties, knickers
and bras became softer and
were made of elasticised fabrics
to make underwear feel like a
second skin.
Over the following decades,
lingerie, centre right, became
one of fashion’s most lucrative
areas, with the average woman
buying 207 bras in her lifetime.
TROUSERS
Puerto Rican Luisa Capetillo
was arrested in 1919 for daring
to be different. Her crime?
Being the first woman to wear
trousers in public.
During the Twenties and
Thirties, women began to
wear trousers as leisurewear, thanks to Hollywood sirens such as
Marlene
Dietrich
and
Katherine Hepburn, who
were often seen in strides.
During
World
War
Two, with rationing of
clothes,
women
started
wearing
men’s
trousers
while they were away.
As these pairs wore out
after the war, women wanted
replacements and it was
then
that
female
trousers really took off.

WRAP DRESS
Diane von Furstenberg, now a fashion
powerhouse,
pioneered the wrap
dress in 1974.
It was seen as a
symbol of women’s
liberation due to its

designed to show
off women’s curves

SUIT
The trouser suit
was a staple of
fashion rails in the
Eighties as women embraced a
looser fit with strong shoulders.
Wearing a suit was some
women’s way of being taken
seriously in the world of business.
Climbing
the
ladder
meant looking the part too.
But thanks to those ladies,
the power suit is no longer
synonymous with men but is
immediately linked to women.
And
if
Meghan
Markle is wearing one, then
we certainly cannot fault it.
BOB HAIR
This ’do may just
be
another
style
option to most, but
its origin shows it is
much more than that.
The early Twenties
saw
flapper
girls
and actresses, such
as Colleen Moore,
bottom left, opt for
the look, with many
seeing
it
as
a
symbol
of
female
liberation.
Flapper
Ellen
Welles Page said: “I
consider getting rid
of our long hair one
of the many little
shackles that women
have cast aside in
their
passage
to
freedom.
Whatever
helps
with
their
emancipation, however small it may
be, is worthwhile.”
It was a big step
for women and is
one of the most
iconic looks of all
time. So next time
you go to a hairdresser’s and ask for
a bob, strut your
stuff as you walk out.
SUNTANS
We
know
Coco
Chanel for all she
gave us in fashion, —
but she also brought
us the suntan.
While on holiday
in
the
Twenties,
Gabrielle
“Coco”
Chanel caught the
sun, which at the
time was a faux-pas because
being tanned was seen as a sign
of being poor.
But onlookers thought the
sun-kissed glow looked good on
her and they wanted in on the
golden look.
Tans quickly became a sign of
wealth and beauty. So not only
can we thank her for label
Chanel, we can also thank her
for fake tan.
Who knew?
FUTURISTIC FASHION
3D printing will be used to adapt the structure of
clothes so they can be more tightly woven at one
point, and more open at another. Clothes will
maintain the right temperature in response to the
environment, be used to charge batteries on
mobile phones and send messages to loved ones.
HEALTH ADVANCES
Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of death
among British women but by 2118 we will have
found a cure. Children will be bred to order. Mothers’ eggs will be artificially fertilised to create
babies that grow in bottles. They will not be born,
but decanted.
Sex will be for pleasure only.

YEARS OF
By JENNY FRANCIS
MYLEENE KLASS is
not yet 40 but has
done
it
all
–
classical
pianist,
pop star, reality TV
star, fashion entrepreneur,
model
and mum.
But she is now launching yet another career —
as a workout guru.
She has brought out a
fitness guide called MyBody
by Myleene, designed for
ANYONE to do.
MyBody by Myleene is a
12-week programme costing
£49.95 that comes with an
exercise DVD, wallplanner and
sandbell weight. It focuses on
toning, fat-burning and core
strength.
The mum of two, who turns
40 in April, says: “I’ve kept up
my exercise my whole life.
“But I’m not talking excessive
behaviour — these days you are
made to feel like you either
have to be a ‘gym bunny’ or on
the sofa with your remote
control, but you can have a
balance.”
‘Incredibly in love’
Myleene has also found a new
balance and peace in her
personal life.
She is living happily with
PR-man
boyfriend
Simon
Motson, 44, after a bitter split
from her ex-husband Graham
Quinn — the father of her two
daughters — four years ago.
The former I’m A Celebrity
star says: “Turning 40, I don’t
think I could have planned for
where I wanted to be at this
time in my life.
“I would never have put this
together. I’d take the rough with
the smooth because if I hadn’t
had the rough I’d never be able
to appreciate how amazing love
is, how amazing I feel now.
“I feel really proud where I
am in my life, I’m incredibly in
love. I do believe if I hadn’t
been through those experiences,
I’d like to think I’d still be
grateful. But if I’m being really
honest, would I have been?
“Probably not. Now I know
who I am and I know I am so
happy. I’m going to own every
year, I don’t want to go backwards, I don’t want to be 21.
“I’m
more
confident
and
content now than I ever have
been. I’m going to own 40.”

mix the eggs with the Greek-style natural
yoghurt, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Pour the mixture into the pan and
continue cooking over a high heat until

Transfer the pan to the grill and cook until
it is golden and the egg has set. Serve
immediately with hot buttered toast.

EXERCISES TO HELP YOU GET DREAM BODY
Reverse/side lunge
with sandbell
THESE lunges are best
done using the 3.5kg
sandbell weight provided
as part of the My Body by
Myleene fitness
programme. It will help
strengthen and tone leg
muscles in particular.
REVERSE LUNGE: Start
with feet hip-distance
apart, holding the sandbell
close to the body, elbows
bent.
Keeping your chest up,
step back with one leg and
bring your heel off the floor
to lower your knee toward
the ground.
As you do this,
straighten your arms to
bring the sandbell weight
directly out in front of
you. Push through the
front foot, to return to start
position.
Then repeat exercise on
other leg.
SIDE LUNGE: Start with
feet hip-distance apart,
holding the sandbell close
to the body, elbows bent.
Take a step to the side,
keeping toes pointed
forward and bend at the
knee, pushing hips back,
keeping chest up and
sandbell held close to your
body.
Hold at the bottom for
one second then push
back off the foot in the side
lunge and return to the
start.
Repeat on the same leg
for the entire set before

Plank to side plank
Boxing jab
THIS is a great, fun exercise
to do with a partner.
Stand with left foot in
front of your right, hands up
to protect your face, and
tuck elbows in, chin down.
Have a slight bend at your
knees.
With clenched fists, throw
the jab straight out, rotating
your palms down.
Keep your elbows in and
aligned with your fist and
the rest of your body.
As soon as your fist
reaches full extension,
quickly pull back to its
original position and
repeat. Swap when you’ve
done your repetitions.

DO each exercise for
45 seconds then rest
for 15 seconds. Do four to
five rounds. Always
warm up before exercise
– and consult a doctor if
you are new to exercise.
START in a plank position, elbows below shoulders,
palms on floor, forming a straight line along the body,
abs engaged.
Slowly twist the body to the side and bring the right
arm up to the sky, balancing on the left arm while
keeping hips raised off the floor.
Hold for a second at the top then return to the
starting plank position.
YOUR RIGHT
TO CHOOSE
By KRIS HALLENGA
TODAY marks 100 years since women
finally got to vote. It’s amazing to
think that my great grandmother was
around to see that happen.
The fact that there was a time in this
country when women couldn’t vote
still really baffles me. But now that we
have that vote, it doesn’t exactly
mean we have equality. I am sure we
can all agree that we have some way
to go until that happens.
I do, however, believe in recognising
milestones and celebrating people
who went out of their way for
something they truly believed in, and
sacrificed so much in the process.
As a result, women have more
equal lives to men and have a voice.
It’s now easy for young people to take
this for granted, which I guess is why
a lot of people don’t bother voting.
I think we should celebrate not just
the fact that a monumental shift
happened 100 years ago, we should
also celebrate choice – something
we too often forget we have the
privilege of.
Choice plays a big role in my life,
more than I would sometimes like,
thanks to having cancer. I get to
choose my treatment plan.
There would likely have been a time
when there were no choices at all. It
was one way or the highway.
I presume my grandmother, who
had breast cancer at 30, wasn’t
offered many options for treatment.
She was given a mastectomy and
no further treatments. She then lived
for many years and cancer didn’t
darken her life again.
Right now, I am standing at the
foothill of a mountain of treatment
options, which is both comforting
and really bloody confusing.
Recently, I was told my cancer is
more active again so I need to change
treatment.
This is easier said than done and
no one can tell me the one clear plan
of action that will help me. But I am
kind of used to that now.
With choice comes big
responsibility and I will admit it all
seems a bit much sometimes.
If I hadn’t already been through
nine years of this, I would wonder
how I could manage any more.
It’s lucky, then, that I have this
rather big desire to stay alive for as
long as possible, which is quite the
driving force.
We flex our right to decisionmaking most days. Sometimes our
decisions can bring life-changing
results. But even when they don’t, it’s
good to remember those who had no
choice and no voice, at all.
Just coppafeel and look
out for the following...
LOOK for changes
in skin texture
such as puckering
LOOK for swelling
in your arm pit or
around collar bone
FEEL for lumps
and thickening
LOOK for constant
pain in your
breast or armpit
LOOK for change
in discharge
LOOK for a
change in size
and shape
LOOK for nipple
inversion and
changes in
direction
LOOK for a rash
or crusting of the
nipple or
surrounding area

whole cost of their treatment. I

THERESA May is doubling the
fees visiting foreigners have to
pay to use our NHS.
But the £400 charge still falls
short of the £600 promised in the
Tory election manifesto — and is
unlikely to deter those seeking
cheap treatment here.
This new figure is expected to
raise £220million a year but that
is just a smidgen of the £2billion
cost of health tourism.
SANDRA QUEEN

THE proposed £400 charge for
temporary migrants from outside

fraction of what British taxpayers
stump up through tax.
Yet again it’s the indigenous
people who suffer discrimination.
LAUREN SMITH

THE Government’s plan to charge
health tourists double is just
posturing. Many do not bother to
pay anyway.

Whether it’s competing at work, or trying to win a game of
Scrabble, you’ll be ruthless – especially with someone you
secretly find attractive. With Mercury at the top of your chart,
you get a clear view of the key people in your life. And the best
answers to big questions come from the head, not the heart.
A comfortable lifestyle and a love that grows with time may not
sound like a dream romance but when you try it – wow. It could
start when an intuitive friend makes the introductions. Helping
a colleague finish a project makes you realise their job would
be perfect for you. So don’t let careless words spill out.
The non-stop determination of Saturn and a boost of extra
energy from Mars may not be your usual style, but it helps you
achieve so much today. This is also a day when love should be
cherished, not taken for granted. Single? A Capricorn whose
smile really gets to you still needs to know you’re interested.
There’s lots to learn and like about a potential partner who
arrives in your life, but resist asking or telling too much about
past relationships. The moon inspires you to create a space to
call your own at home where ideas will flow. The best way to
help a relative with decisions to make is to listen.
Flattery can be a clever way to disguise the truth when you are
asked to give your opinion of a friend’s new look – but could
lead to trouble later, so be tactful. When a face from a previous
workplace reappears the love spark returns. In a long-term
partnership, now’s the time to set new goals.
The decisive edge of business planet Mercury can help you get
deals done that make everyone feel they’ve gained something.
Ambitions linked to the showbiz world change from being just
daydreams to a detailed action plan. Someone whose feelings
are usually well-hidden, gets romantic and you’re the reason.
The moon moves into your birth sign and the atmosphere
immediately gets more co-operative. Now is the the right time
for you to be ambitious and go for the job you really want. If
you’re single, falling in love with another Scorpio is a brave
move leading to deep passion, rows and sultry reconciliation.
Saturn turns you into a money expert, so instead of just hoping
for the best you check all the facts. A savings target is
ambitious but achievable – and developments in your love life
inspire you. If you’re single, your new love wears two wrist
watches – one is sporty and the other high fashion.
You have a deeper understanding of how people think and feel –
both newcomers and those you know well. This helps shared
projects succeed. You see a different side of a partner that
adds fun to the relationship. Talk again about home plans and
this time the family will listen. Luck is written in gold and silver.

When money arrives out of the blue, you’re surprised when you

Venus and Mars are both well placed in your chart and partners
agree on the best way forward. If you’re single, it could be love
at first sight when a newcomer opens the door at a friend’s
house. Where others see obstacles, you see challenges and
your true grit helps make a breakthrough at work.
Think about what people actually do, and deliver, rather than
promises they make – and you’ll make good choices in all areas
of life. Venus helps you to be sure of your love feelings but a
partner may need more time. Single? Last time you met, one of
you wasn’t free now you both are and it’s a mutual attraction.

‘Disruption’ . . . airline
RYANAIR’S
READY TO
GRUMBLE
RYANAIR has warned of
further disruption to flights
as it thrashes out deals
with unions across Europe.
Following a disruptive
rostering crisis last year,
the low-cost Irish airline
agreed for the first time
to recognise the British
Airline Pilots’ Association.
Ryanair said similar talks
in other countries were
being finalised, adding:
“We expect some localised
disruptions and adverse PR
so investors should be
prepared for the same.”
In the last quarter of
2017, it reported a 12 per
cent increase in net profit
to £84million.
Revenues rose four per
cent to £1.2billion while
passenger numbers were
up six per cent to
30.4million despite flights
being cancelled due to
the rostering fiasco.
A £661.3million share
buyback was announced to
keep investors sweet.
Staff costs this year will
rise by £39million due to
a 20 per cent pay rise for
pilots and larger crews.
Laith Khalaf, analyst at
Hargreaves Lansdown, said:
“The dials are moving in
the right direction at
Ryanair, but Michael
O’Leary has switched the
‘fasten seatbelt’ sign on.”
NEW CAR
BUYS FALL
NEW car sales are falling,
with business purchases
down by nearly a third,
figures show.
There were 163,615 cars
leaving showrooms in
January, down by 6.3 per
cent compared with the
same month last year.
Demand fell across the
board as people held on to
cars for longer, according
to the Society of Motor
Manufacturers and Traders.
Business buys fell by
29.7 per cent, with a 9.5
per cent drop for private
purchases and 1.8 per cent
for fleet.
Dual purpose cars (SUVs)
were the only segment to
see growth, with demand
up 6.6 per cent.
SERVICES
SEE DROP
GROWTH in the UK’s allimportant services sector
has faltered, according to a
closely-watched index which
fell to its lowest level since
September 2016.
The purchasing managers’ index dropped from
54.2 to 53.0 in January.
Although still above the
50 mark, which indicates
expansion, it was well
below hopes of a slight
improvement for the month.
IHS Markit, which compiles the survey, reported
that firms – spanning
transport companies, to IT
outfits, hotels and restaurants – said growth was
curtailed by a loss of clients and “lingering concerns” surrounding Brexit.

“In light of this, a review of

It is understood the 19 Bunnings pilot stores are among

After a third defeat in eight visits
to the Super Bowl, he said: “Losing
sucks but that’s part of it. You try to
win and sometimes you lose.
“I expect to be back but we’ll see.
I have to process this a little bit but
I don’t see why I wouldn’t be back.
“The Eagles played a better game
and they deserve to win. That’s why
we’re not the champs.”
Brady’s opposite number, Nick
Foles, threw for 373 yards and three
touchdown passes on his way to
being named Super Bowl MVP.
The Eagles quarterback, who almost
quit two years ago when he fell out
of love with the game, also took a
touchdown catch from Trey Burton.
Foles, 29, stepped in for the
injured Carson Wentz in December
and the Eagles have not looked back
since on their run to Minneapolis.
He said: “We have a great group

felt confident coming in and we just

SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP
IT
could
be
a
Blue Tuesday for
Huddersfield.
The
struggling
Terriers face a testing FA Cup replay at
Birmingham following their 1-1 draw.
Former
Town
striker Lukas Jutkiewicz scored in that
game — and is
21/10 with Sun Bets
to net again.
There will not be
much in it but we
fancy the hosts to
overcome their topflight
opponents,
with a draw halftime and Birmingham full-time at
11/2 with Sun Bets.
BOWLED OVER . . .
Brit’s joy, Brady woe
The London-born running back and
his Philadelphia Eagles took down
NFL legend Tom Brady and the Patriots in a thriller at US Bank Stadium.
Ajayi, 24, moved to the US aged
seven and this year was traded midseason from Miami to Philadelphia.
He said: “Everyone dreams of
being a champion and I can say,
even when I’m gone, I’m a Super
Bowl champion.
“The journey and the challenges
that I’ve been through, but to still be
able
to
touch
and
kiss
that
Lombardi Trophy and to understand
that I’m a Super Bowl champion, is
the greatest feeling in the world.
“It’s rare to be in positions like
this, coming from London, getting to
the States and even being a Super
Bowl champion. I’m so thankful to
be on the Eagles.”
Patriots quarterback Brady, 40, had
his bid to become the first man to
win six Super Bowls dashed.
His dream was all but ended when
he suffered the only sack of the
game near the end of the match.
Brady threw for 505 yards and
three touchdowns in a near flawless
performance but his Patriots were
DIAMOND: Lukas Jutkiewicz
to score anytime against Huddersfield, 21/10 with Sun Bets.
NEXT BEST: Birmingham v
Huddersfield, draw half-time
and Birmingham full-time, 11/2
with Sun Bets.
LONGSHOT: Birmingham to
beat
Huddersfield,
Notts
County to beat Swansea and
Rochdale to beat Millwall, 62/1
with Sun Bets.
SACK!
From SUNNI UPAL in Minneapolis

SIR GEOFFREY (nap) can be our golden oldie in
Southwell’s 3.35. He may be 12 but his legs certainly
aren’t feeling it as he returned to winning ways here last
month. He has a great record with jockey Keiran O’Neill
and can go in again.
FOOLAAD (3.05 Southwell, nb) can make a fool out
of the bookies again. He has been in excellent form
and was last seen winning a better race than this. He is
expected to notch up another course and distance win.
STAR ASCENDING (4.40 Southwell, treble) can end
the day on a high. He has been thriving at this
track recently and can defy another rise in the weights.

8-1 JENKINS A FAIR BET
JENKINS looks the pick of Nicky Henderson’s five entries
for Saturday’s £100,000 Betfair Hurdle at Newbury as the
Seven Barrows trainer hunts a sixth win in the race.
The six-year-old is officially 8lb ‘well in’ after his
latest success at Ascot last month and the sponsors fear a gamble.
Jenkins (right) is joint market leader with
Lalor at 8-1. Mare Irish Roe next best at
10-1 for the two-mile thriller. Lalor
bids to give Kayley Woollacott a big winner
following the sad death of husband Richard.

happy as star returns
NICKY HENDERSON
has given Altior the
thumbs-up ahead of his
first run of the season at
Newbury on Saturday.
The superstar chaser will
go for a seventh straight
win over fences in the
Game Spirit Chase.
He has not been seen on
the track since last April
when he won at Sandown.
The eight-year-old was
diagnosed with a breathing
problem in mid-November
and underwent an operation soon after. Henderson
By STEVE JONES
is confident the issue has
now been sorted and Altior
has impressed in all his
recent gallops.
The four-time champion
trainer said: “The intention
is to run Altior at Newbury. His work has been
good, I couldn’t be happier.
“If the ground is good to
soft or soft then Altior will
be declared for the race.”
Henderson (left) has a
good chance of getting his
wish for decent ground as
Newbury have already put

JOY . . . Eve, Thomas and Glen
Muir the
merrier
together
By DAVID COVERDALE
WHEN it comes to curling,
Team GB are hoping that
three
Muirheads
are
better than one.
Four years ago in Sochi,
Eve Muirhead, now 27,
became the youngest skip
to win an Olympic medal
when she led the girls to
bronze.
Now this year in PyeonChang, she will be joined
by brothers Tom and Glen.
The
Muirhead
boys
admit they have been
inspired by the achievements of Eve. And they vividly remember where they
were when their sister
made history in Russia.
Tom, 22, said: “I was at
the back of a lecture
room in Edinburgh watching it on my phone. I was
screaming inside.
“Seeing the medals was
the moment it sunk in for
me and I thought, ‘That’s
what I’m gunning for in
the next four years’.”
Glen, 28, added: “I was
at the market selling
sheep. Fortunately, at the
cafe at the market, there
was a big TV.”
There is another family
connection in the men’s
rink as skip Kyle Smith is
joined by his brother
Cammy. Kyle Waddell and
Tom Muirhead make up
the rest of the four-man
team, with Glen Muirhead
selected as an alternate.
Team Smith begin their
campaign against Switzerland a week tomorrow.
As for the women, Eve
Muirhead — now in her
third Games — skips her
brother Glen’s girlfriend
Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams
and Lauren Gray, with
Kelly Schafer an alternate.
Eve said: “I haven’t seen
my brothers that often so
it’ll be good to spend a
few weeks with them at
the Games.”
World up
for Brits
By VIKKI ORVICE
GREAT BRITAIN will host
the inaugural athletics
World Cup at London’s
Olympic Stadium.
The competition on July
14-15 will feature one
female and male athlete
from eight nations in all
track and field events in a
straight-to-final format.
USA, Germany, Jamaica
and South Africa are
among those taking part.
Each nation will be
competing for a £1.4million prize pot over two
evening sessions.
Seb Coe, president of
the sport’s governing body
the IAAF, said: “This is
one of the exciting innovative events we are seeing
in our sport.”
And

chairman Richard Bowker
added: “This will be an

BEN YOUNGS will be

The England scrum-half,
28, had a scan last night
and was told that his Six
Nations was over.

in Sunday’s 46-15 Six

— will see a surgeon this

to step in but was horrified by Youngs’ injury.
Harlequins ace Care, 31,
said: “You never want to
pick up such a bad injury.
I was gutted to see Ben in
so much pain.
“It would be great to
get into the No 9 shirt for
the Wales match, having
had 70 minutes under my
belt against Italy.
“Hopefully, we can get
going from where we left
off against them.”

6 NATIONS
Eddie lets his pack do the talking
By JONNY FORDHAM
EDDIE JONES refused to
put the boot in on Wales —
the fans to be pumped. We have
for now!
great fans and these are the sort
England’s mind games specialist was served up a perfect halfvolley when he was asked about
Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh clash at
Twickenham.
But Jones, usually the circus
ringmaster in the build-up to
these mouthwatering Six Nations
showdowns, let it pass.
In 2016, the Red Rose chief
piled into the “terribly illegal”
scrum that Warren Gatland’s side
were “ruining the game” with.
And last year he teased the
Welsh all the way to kick-off
over whether he wanted the
Principality Stadium roof open
or closed.
And he also told the Cardiff
crowd
to
throw
as
many
daffodils as they wanted, as his
side were ready for dirty tricks.
This time, the build-up has
started as a Cold War between
the Aussie and Wales’ Kiwi
coach Gatland.
Jones (right) said: “I’m not
concerned about Wales at
this stage.
“What I am excited about
is
getting
back
to
Twickenham and playing in
front of 82,000 people.
“They’re going to be
so up for it. It’s going
to be an unbelievable atmosphere.
“I can’t wait to
get there. We want
of games they love — the most
traditional rivals in European
rugby against each other, both at
the top of the table. It’s what
you want.”
In November, the bristling
packs came face to face at the
infamous
‘Battle
of
Bristol’
training session.
Since that day, Jones has been
convinced his side are well on
the way to having the best
scrum in the world.
After beating Italy 46-15 in
their championship opener on
Sunday, he hailed his eight’s best
performance under his watch.
He also credited nutty scrum
professor Marc Dal Maso after
the consultant flew in last week
from Toulon.
Jones said: “Dal Maso is a
crazy scientist.
“He’s one of those blokes, he’ll
be sitting in the room and
banging his fists together — he’s
got the perfect picture of a
scrum in his head.
“I’ve never met a bloke
like him.
“He
brings
something
different because he’s got so
many unusual thoughts.
“He might bring six
things forward and one
of
them
will
be
absolutely brilliant.
“It’s a great resource
for us to have. He floats in,
floats out, brings one or two
ideas and we work out whether
it’s good for us to do it.
“There
has
been
great
coaching by Neal Hatley too and
great physical development by
the players.
“They’ve
got
stronger
and
more flexible, so we can scrum
lower. It is a combination of the
players and coaches working
together. We’ve obviously
prioritised it.
“We had the scrum
session in November
against
Wales
and
there
is
the
possibility of having
another one.”
After
starting
their Six Nations
defence
with
a
bonus point, Jones
also reckons his
injury-hit squad
is greater than
the
sum
of
its parts.
He
added:
“Our game is
based on collective talent.
EIGHT EXPECTATIONS

Stars give

GEORGE NORTH and Liam
Williams have given Wales
a big fitness boost for the
crunch clash with England.
Warren Gatland’s star
backs returned to training
and are in contention for
Saturday’s Six Nations
showdown at Twickenham.
Williams is fit again after
intensive rehabilitation on
an abdominal problem.
North missed Saturday’s
34-7 drubbing of Scotland
because of a knee injury
but proved his condition
with a try in Northampton’s
36-10 Anglo-Welsh Cup win
over Harlequins that day.
Wales skills coach Neil
Jenkins
said:
“George
playing last week was a
big boost for us and it’s
the same with Liam.
“They are both worldclass players and they’re a
big positive for us.
“We are under no
illusions over how tough
it’s going to be at
Twickenham.”

But Hatton said: “I just wonder, has he

Over the years we have that part of the plane got out crash and which went on to
grieved for those who lost
their lives and sympathised
with all those whose lives
were touched and damaged by
the tragedy.
For
me,
personally,
my
working life underwent a
dramatic change.
The editor of the Manchester
Evening News, Tom Henry,
took me away from writing
about politics to take the place
of our United correspondent,
Tom Jackson, who was one of
the eight journalists on board
who lost their lives.
I think of those football
writers as fellow journalists
who were caught up in the
disaster,
after
the
plane
crashed on take-off following
a refuelling stop at Munich,
on
the
way
home
from
United’s European Cup tie
against Red Star in Belgrade.
Football fans easily remember the eight players who lost
their lives. Perhaps not as
clearly do they recall the eight
journalists, the big guns of
football reporters, who also
perished.
In fact, only one reporter
survived — Frank Taylor of the
News Chronicle and he suffered some terrible injuries.
The reason the journalists
were particularly hard hit was
because they were all sitting
in the same part of the plane,
tucked up at the back — as is
the custom when the press
and players fly together in
order to give the players more
leg room.
The flight home was no
different, except this time the
ill-fated
tail
section
was
ripped off and spun wildly
into a building, catching fire.
The sports writers had no
chance and I don’t like to
think about the manner of
their deaths, trapped in the
blazing inferno. Nobody from
alive. Frank Taylor lived to
tell the tale because he chose
to sit further up the plane.
There was still a fire danger
for the rest of the aircraft, as
the surviving pilot shouted out
to those players who had
scrambled out of the wreckage.
Harry
Gregg
and
Bill
Foulkes
had
miraculously
emerged, dazed but unhurt,
and heeded the pilot’s warning.
They started to run until
goalkeeper Gregg thought he
heard the sound of a baby
crying
coming
from
the
aircraft.
He immediately stopped and
ran back to the wreckage. He
forced his way inside and
came out with a baby in
his arms, which he
handed to one of
the surviving cabin
staff.
He went back
in a second time
because he had
seen the baby’s
mother trapped
in her seat. He
kicked out some
more panelling to
make the hole in
the
fuselage
big
enough to complete the
rescue.
Baby Vesna Lukic, only 22
months old at the time of the
crash, grew up to become a
teacher in Belgrade.
Heroic Harry, who had been
at Old Trafford for only six
weeks following a £23,000
transfer from Doncaster, acted
with great bravery and I think
the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Munich would be
the moment to give him a
medal.
He and Bill played in the
makeshift team put together
by assistant manager Jimmy
Murphy that beat Sheffield
Wednesday in the FA Cup
fifth round 13 days after the
reach the final against Bolton.
Harry says it took him 40
years to confront his Munich
demons. But, looking back, he
says of the crash: “There were
no screams, no human sounds,
only the terrible tearing of
metal.
“All around was dark and it
was as if I was frozen in time.
“I couldn’t comprehend the
scene of utter devastation
around me. It was only in
hospital that the enormity of
the situation hit home.”
As well as the eight United
players who lost their lives —
Roger Byrne, Mark Jones,
Duncan
Edwards,
Tommy
Taylor, Eddie Colman, Liam
Whelan,
David
Pegg
and
Geoff Bent — two were so
badly injured, Johnny

and
Jackie
Blanchflower, they
never
played
again.
Two
club
coaches,
Bert
Whalley
and
Tom Curry, were
killed, as was the
long-serving
United
secretary,
Walter Crickmer.
A lot of people wondered where United manager
Matt Busby got the strength
from to return to football and
start all over again.
I went to see him soon after
he had come home. He had
aged terribly and told me the
hardest part for him was the
way Johnny Berry kept coming
to his room in hospital to say
that Tommy Taylor is some
friend, he hasn’t been to visit.
Sir Matt said: “They set my
foot one bone at a time and it
was cruel — but it didn’t hurt
me like Johnny coming to my
room every day to say Tommy
Taylor was a poor friend.
“I just didn’t know how to
tell him the tragic truth.”

THE BIG REF ROW
PREMIER LEAGUE
RIDICULOUS
ATKINSON . . . query
Now no one understands the offside law MOSS
Dave Kidd
IN the course of one penalty
decision at Anfield on Sunday,
two uncomfortable truths were
laid bare for the refereeing
fraternity.
Firstly, that the offside law is a
dog’s dinner. Secondly, that while
refs may condemn players for
dishonesty, they’re no paragons of
virtue themselves.
Long gone are the days when you
could get away with the tired old
gag about women not understanding
the offside law, especially in an age
when NOBODY comprehends the
current version.
Former World Cup refs Graham
Poll and Mark Clattenburg had differing views as to whether Jon Moss
was correct to award Harry Kane
the first of Spurs’ two late penalties
in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
So how are the rest of us
supposed to have a clue?
The issue was whether Kane
should have been judged offside,
given
that
Dejan
Lovren
had
miscued a clearance into his path.
Age-old logic dictates that Kane
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
must have been interfering with
play, given that Lovren acted rashly
in the knowledge that the hottest
goalscorer on the planet was lurking
behind him.
But apparently that logic no
longer applies.
And to properly decipher the current version of the law would take a
PhD in advanced code-cracking.
But the second aspect is even
more
troubling
for
Premier
League refs — the fact that when
Moss consulted with linesman
Eddie Smart, he clearly asked,
through
his
microphone,
whether fourth official Martin
Atkinson had seen anything on
TV as to whether Lovren had
touched the ball.
Now, this practice is
OFFSIDE Q&A
not allowed — although everyone has
long suspected the refs were at it,
asking help from a fourth official
within sight of a replay screen.
When Moss was caught by the
eavesdropping TV coverage, the
referees’ body PGMOL issued a
statement claiming he had been
‘misguided’ in this
but that Atkinson,
conveniently,
had
not
answered
him.
So we’re
expected to
believe Moss
instantly
awarded
a
penalty on the
basis of Atkinson blanking him? In
a court of law, it wouldn’t need
Rumpole of the Bailey to crossexamine the heck out of that story.
The incident seems even more
ridiculous at present, with the VAR
system being trialled in certain cup
games but not in the Premier
League.
While Moss was clearly breaking
the rules, this made it seem more of
a grey area as to whether he was
really doing anything seriously wrong.
And whether you agree with VAR
or not, it was refreshing to be able
to hear the officials
communicate with one
another — even if
only to realise what
we always expected:
that they’re pretty
much making it up
as they go along.
Still, at least Kane
had the decency to
produce a poor penalty which was saved,
making the whole
argument irrelevant
anyway . . .
Assistant
Referee
EDDIE SMART
JON MOSS
KANE in
offside
position
but is he
active?
WHAT DOES THE LAW SAY?
Law 11 states a player in an offside position
receiving possession from an opponent —
who DELIBERATELY plays the ball — is not
considered to have gained an advantage.
WHEN DID THE LAW CHANGE?
The law was changed by the International
Football Association Board (IFAB) in the
summer of 2015. It stated then . . .
A player in an offside position is penalised
if — at the moment the ball touches or is
played by one of his team — he is, in the
opinion of the ref, involved in active play by
l Interfering with play
l Interfering with an opponent
l Gaining an advantage by being in that
position
WHY DID THE LAW CHANGE?
Lawmakers wanted to give the advantage to
the attackers in situations where the ball is
deliberately played by an opponent or when
the opponent makes a deliberate block.
MARK HALSEY’S VIEW ON THE LAW . . .
The offside law at present is unsatisfactory
and an ass for refs, players, managers and
fans. It’s a grey area and there is too much
interpretation.
HALSEY’S VIEW ON SUNDAY — DID HARRY
KANE IMPACT ON DEJAN LOVREN? WAS
KANE INVOLVED IN ACTIVE PLAY?
I think Kane has impacted on Lovren and
therefore he is interfering with an opponent
— that would have definitely meant
offside was given under the previous law
but I still feel there is room for that
interpretation to be given as offside now.
Having spoken to officials past and
present, many agree with me but this was
an incident that has divided people.
The IFAB need an independent review of
this incident and the offside law needs to
be refined because it is too confusing for
everybody.
Smart: All I need to know is did
(Dejan) Lovren touch the ball or not?
Moss: I don’t know.
Smart: If he’s not touched the ball, it’s offside, so you’re chalking off
the penalty. It has to be offside if Lovren hasn’t touched the ball.
Christian Eriksen: He did touch the ball. Emre Can: He didn’t.
Smart: I can’t be sure if Lovren touched the ball or not.
That is the question I am asking.
Moss: Just talk to me again.
Smart: You know what I’m asking. I need to clarify, has
Lovren touched the ball? If he has, it’s a deliberate action
and, therefore, it’s a penalty. If he hasn’t, it’s offside.
Moss: I’ve no idea whether
Lovren touched the ball to be honest
with you. Martin, have you got anything from the TV?
(Both look towards fourth official Martin Atkinson)
Moss: I’m giving the penalty.

Sports reporter Geoff
Shreeves tweeted that
Atkinson did NOT look

the Professional Game
Match Officials Limited
(PGMOL) revealed his
mistake in a statement
released yesterday.
It read: “He asked a
question to his fourth

referencing ‘TV’ was
misguided.”
But PGMOL backed
Moss and his team for
their performance —
saying they got the first
penalty decision right.
Moss spoke to his
assistant Eddie Smart
as Liverpool appealed
for offside after hitman
Harry Kane pounced on
Dejan Lovren’s miscued
clearance — and was
then brought down by
keeper Loris Karius.
Following Moss and
Smart’s
discussion,

Moss said: “I’m giving
the penalty.”
PGMOL insisted Moss
was convinced a Reds
star played Kane onside.
A spokesman said:
“Moss knew a Liverpool
player had touched the
ball but not that it
was Lovren.
“Atkinson
did
not

Kane was given the boot

was
playing
for
Arsenal’s
youth team. I was behind
enemy lines so to speak but it
was a great opportunity.
“One day when I was eight,
I was walking to the park
with my dad and he said out
of the blue, ‘I’ve got to tell
you something’.
“He put his arm around my
shoulder
and
said,
‘Well,
Harry, Arsenal have released
you’. I do remember how my
father reacted and how it
made me feel.
“He didn’t criticise me. He
didn’t criticise Arsenal. He
didn’t even look especially
bothered by it at all.
“He just said, ‘Don’t worry,
Harry. We’ll work harder —
and we’ll go on and find

Emirates in November 2016

GETCHA
Harry ahead of clash
back in 2015, I had a flashback to when I was 11, playing
against Arsenal’s youth team.
It was like deja vu.
“Before
every
match,
I
always visualise scenarios of
exactly how I’ll score.
“Left-foot curler into the
bottom corner, right-foot volley
from the corner of the box.
“I’ve always been that way. I
get really detailed about it —
I’ll picture my opponents,
the
cut
of
the
grass,
everything. This time, I
pictured defenders wearing
the red Arsenal kit and
I got goosebumps.
“We were in the tunnel and I thought, ‘it
took me 12 years but
we’ll see who was
right and who was
wrong’.
“I scored two that day
and the winner in the
86th minute was something
I’d
never
even
dreamed of visualising before.
“It was a header — probably
the best I’ve ever scored.
“That feeling when it hit
the back of the net, I’ve never
felt a rush like that in my
whole career.
“I remember walking round
the
pitch
after
the
final
whistle, clapping to the fans
and it felt like, ‘I told you so’.”
Kane admitted he questioned
himself, especially during that
spell at Leicester in 2013.
He added: “When Tottenham
sent me out on loan for two
years, there were so many
moments when I questioned
whether I’d ever get the
chance to score even one goal
in the Premier League.
“I remember sitting in my
flat and having this terrible
realisation, ‘If I can’t play for
Leicester in the Championship,
how am I supposed to play for
Spurs in the Premier League?’
“That was the first time in
my career, I’d say, that the
doubt crept in.
“But I also learned a lot of
great lessons during those
years. It wasn’t just about
Arsenal, it’s a little deeper.
“It
was
about
proving
something to myself and to my
family, who believed in me
every step of the way.”
Having now reached his
century, Kane thanked his
family, including fiancee Kate,
boss Mauricio Pochettino and
the thousands who sing the
Tottenham anthem ‘He’s One
of Our Own’.
And to those Spurs fans
who wonder if Kane might be
considering leaving the club —
with
Real
Madrid
and
Manchester
United
both
heavily linked — his message
was one to delight them.
He added: “I dreamed of
playing for Spurs since I was
a boy.
“For
a
long
time
my
motivation was simply to close
my eyes and picture myself
scoring against Arsenal in the
Premier League.
“I’ve done that a few times
now and it never gets old.

Tweet @CharlieWyett
What Daniel Levy
must do now is make
sure that club is Spurs
and no one else.
I know Harry has
been very open and
honest about his love for
Tottenham. Totally committed to the cause, with
absolutely no desire to
do it anywhere else.
Yet the whispers continue that some day,
maybe not too far in the
future, Real Madrid will
come calling.
It is always easier to
pledge loyalty when there
is no tricky decision to
be made. Which is why
Levy has to dig deeper
than ever before and put
an end to any murmurs
once and for all by
breaking the bank for
Europe’s greatest scorer.
Yes, I know Kane still
has 4 years left on his
contract and I’m well
aware he doesn’t exactly
scramble
for
loose
change to buy a loaf
and a pint of milk.
But his latest landmark — hitting a century
of Premier League goals
— should be the spark
that sees Levy make a
statement of intent.
If Harry is happy to
stay at Tottenham, then
pay him the wages his
status merits.
And if that means
sending
a
rocket
through the club’s pay
structure, so be it.
Not just for Kane’s
future and peace of
mind, but for every
other player at the club
and those that may have
their eyes on signing
further down the line.
Tying him down for
six years, maybe even
longer, would prove how
serious Levy is about
keeping him for good.
And that would also
be a massive help in
bringing in the supporting cast — or, in some
ARE THE TALK OF FOOTBALL
cases, keeping it — that
his talents merit.
It’s
great
to
hear
Harry talk of his dream
of helping Spurs win
major trophies and it
would be a travesty if
he ended with nothing
to show for it because
of a lack of back-up.
So get your skates on
Daniel, because if you
don’t then, sooner or
later Real, Barca, PSG or
one of the game’s other
giant spenders will put
that loyalty to the test.
Make no mistake, it’s
not a case of who would
want Kane in their side,
but where couldn’t he
go? I certainly can’t
think of anywhere.
Not bad for a kid who
many insisted was a
one-season wonder not
too long ago.
I’m not the only one
who thinks if he steers
clear of serious injury,
he has a real chance of
beating Alan Shearer’s
Premier League record
of 260 goals.
The way he’s going,
he’ll do it in about four
years, never mind by
the end of his career.
What I’ve always loved
about
Harry
is
his
hunger, his appetite, his
burning desire to score.
It’s why I said very
early on that he really
excited me, how he was
such a fantastic finisher
and
why
he
would
always score goals.
A part of his game
which
rarely
gets
a
mention is his work-rate,
his willingness to close
down
defenders
and
win the ball. It’s a great
attitude to have and one
all the greats possess.
And what impresses
me is how he invariably
gets his effort on target.
No wonder tearing up
the record books has
become something of a
habit where Harry is
concerned.
Now Levy must do the
same to Kane’s Spurs
contract and replace it
with one that sends a
message to every other
club on the planet —
that
Harry’s
going
nowhere. Ever.

THEY played with fear in
the first half.
They played with confusion
in the second half.
And they showed a lack of
personality throughout.
These
were
the
words
Antonio Conte used to damn
his own team last night.
The manager of the Premier
League champions sounded
like a dead man walking and
the transcript of last night’s
press conference at Vicarage
Road might end up being
regarded as his suicide note.
Conte had been requesting a
vote of confidence from owner
Roman
Abramovich
before
this match.
After it, he delivered an
alarming vote of no-confidence in his own players.
Conte insinuated that if his
best was not good enough, then
Abramovich should sack him
and he can go home to Italy.
Asked whether he thought
he
could
survive
this
thrashing, Conte said he could
not predict the future and
then he mentioned his team’s
last two results.
Chelsea 0 Bournemouth 3.
Watford 4 Chelsea 1.
Intolerable
results
for
Abramovich.
Add some coded mutterings
which suggested he fears his
own players might have been
briefing against him and you
would be a brave man to bet
on Conte lasting the week.
Chelsea, as is their wont,
have veered from triumph to
disaster.
The champions are an illtempered, fractious rabble — a
reflection of their manager’s
mood.
Chelsea’s turbulent boss has
whinged long and hard about
transfer policy and overseen a
run of just two wins in ten
matches.
Their
Champions
League
berth is under threat and that
is when Abramovich often
pulls the trigger.
Yet whoever decided to spend
£40million on Tiemoue Bakayoko seems to have proved
Conte right about their problems in the transfer market.
After Eden Hazard cancelled
out
Troy
Deeney’s
opener, Chelsea were blitzed
by three late goals from Daryl
Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and
Roberto Pereyra.
But Bakayoko set the scene
when he was sent off after
just 30 minutes, following one
of the worst individual performances you will ever see from
a Premier League player.
When ref Mike Dean gave
him his marching orders, his
19
By DAVE
KIDD
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
second yellow card was a
little harsh.
But you could see what
Dean was getting at — he was,
in
effect,
dismissing
the
Chelsea midfielder because his
first touch had been so bad it
was endangering the safety of
opponents.
Having teed up Richarlison
for a clear run on the Chelsea
goal, with one of several
misplaced passes, Bakayoko
was sent off for two fouls on
that same player in the space
of five minutes.
As he trudged off, aiming a
melancholy round of applause
at the travelling fans, the
Chelsea faithful sang ‘you’re
f***ing s**t’.
A
short-handed
Chelsea
were soon behind — but this
was not all about one man’s
personal nightmare.
For Watford this was only a
second win in 13 and a timely
one as they had been sliding
towards a relegation scrap.
In his first programme notes
as Watford’s tenth manager in
5
years,
Javi
Gracia
described his new club as
being ‘like a family’.
Yep, the sort of family
which disowns key members
every six months and ends up
swearing at one another on
the Jeremy Kyle Show.
Yet Conte is the one under
threat at present.
Having whinged about his
lack of striking options and
then landed a battle-hardened
Premier
League
centreforward in Olivier Giroud, he
left him on the bench.
He recalled David Luiz for
a first Premier League start
since
October
and
the
WATFORD beat Chelsea
for the first time in
almost 19 years — since
a
1-0
win
in
the
Premier League back in
September 1999.
Brazilian was soon being
tormented by Deulofeu.
Deeney was wasteful for
Watford, Willian for Chelsea
but none were as shoddy as
Bakayoko.
Richarlison was the victim
of Bakayoko’s two yellow-card
challenges — the first one
clumsy, the second courtesy of
a first touch which made the
second a lunging tackle.
It took 12 minutes for
Watford to capitalise on their
extra man.
Luiz got in a muddle and
Deulofeu scampered round the
back of Gary Cahill, Thibaut
Courtois dashing out to clip
the winger’s left foot.
Deeney, who always scores
penalties and rarely celebrates
them modestly, stayed true to
form.
Deulofeu
and
Richarlison
both curled efforts wide and
Abdoulaye Doucoure forced
Courtois into a flying save.
But Giroud’s arrival gave
Chelsea more of a focal point
and Cesc Fabregas forced one
decent
stop
from
Orestis
Karnezis before Hazard curled
home a beauty, eight minutes
from time.
Yet Janmaat cut in from the
right and played a one-two
with Pereyra before firing
Watford back in front.
Then Deulofeu scored a
supreme
solo
effort
after
picking up the ball inside his
own half.
Long before Pereyra lashed
in the fourth after a Doucoure
pass, Chelsea’s fans had been
looking forward to their next
Champions League clash by
singing
‘Barcelona
we’re
coming for you!’
And for all the world, when
Abramovich hired Conte, he
did not expect his club’s
supporters to be singing that
song with their tongues so
firmly in their cheeks.

about my job. I work every
day and I give 120 per

enough, it’s OK. Otherwise, the club can take a
different decision. But I’m
not worried.
“Tomorrow is another
day. I can be the Chelsea
coach or not. Which is the
problem? My conscience
is clear.
“I try to do everything.
If it’s not good, the club
can make a different
decision. Life goes on.
“I have great disappointment, for sure. Our
performance
was
very
poor tonight.
“We started very badly
and without personality.
We played with fear. I
think this is the worst
situation that I can see as
a coach.
“To play football in a
great club, it means you
must have a personality
because it’s simple to play
when there is confidence.
“In this type of moment,
you can see who is ready
to play for a great club, to
play with personality and
also to risk something.”
Ten-man Chelsea crumbled just two minutes
after equalising through
Eden Hazard and have now
lost two games on the
spin — conceding seven
goals.
Chelsea had Tiemoue
Bakayoko sent off after
half an hour for two bookable offences and he
appeared to suffer abusive
chants from his own fans
as he left the pitch.
Watford were sent on
their way to their biggest
ever Premier League win
by Troy Deeney’s 42ndminute penalty.
Conte said: “We can
lose, but we have to try to
play football and try to be
positive.
Instead,

“We were able to draw
level and I think, in that
moment, we must be good
to manage the situation.
“Instead, in ten minutes,
we were able to concede
three more goals.”
Conte’s
predecessor
Jose Mourinho tempted
fate by claiming he had
been ‘betrayed’ by his
players just before getting
the boot in 2015.
The Italian said: “Do
you think that a club can
decide to sack a coach if
there is not the support
of the players?
“You think the players
have this power? Yes?
This is wrong.”
Watford boss Javier Gracia said: “The match
changed with the sending
off, but I was happy with
the way we played even
before that.”
Ancelotti, who had two
years at Stamford Bridge
between 2009-11, is out
of work having been
sacked at Bayern Munich
in September.
And ex-Barcelona boss
Enrique, who won two La
Liga titles and the Champions League in Spain, is
also available.

100 years, 100 women
Heroines
who led
the way
By
JANE MOORE
Sun Columnist
IT was a landmark moment for the
rights of women.
On February 6, 1918, King George V
gave assent to The Representation Of
The People Act, giving females the
right to vote for the first time.
OK, it was only some women, but it
was a start. You had to be aged over
30 and be pretty well off. But at last,
more than eight million extra women
(and five-and-a-half million men) had
a say in who governed them.
To celebrate the centenary of
women’s suffrage we have compiled
this special pullout, featuring 100
women who have made a mark on
Britain over the past 100 years.
We cannot claim that this is a
definitive list. How can you compare a
Hollywood star with a Nobel Prize
scientist, a sporting great with a
social reformer, a Page Three girl
with an author? Some changed lives,
others changed history. Others
simply brought excitement and
entertainment to millions.
The 1918 law change came after
years of struggle by two groups – the
militant suffragettes and the nonviolent suffragists. In the decade
before the Great War women took to
the streets, with the more extreme
campaigners even planting explosive
devices.
During the war, millions of women
did jobs vacated by men who had
gone off to fight.
It kept the factories open and the
war effort on track. That made it
harder to deny us a vote any longer.
Of course our list is open to debate.
And the real female heroes have
never been famous. They’re the
grafters, the mums and the carers,
who work to earn cash then work
again at home to keep families going.
Haven’t we come a long way since
Emmeline Pankhurst and Co? It was
not until 1928 that all women over 21
got the vote. And 18-year-olds didn’t
get it until 1969.
The
gender
landscape
has
completely changed. But the battle
for equality is not yet won. Look no
further than the BBC gender pay gap
row, the #metoo campaign and the
row over the darts and F1 girls.
It’s a work in progress, propelled by
the courage of modern-day women
speaking about their experiences,
emboldened by the early heroines.
The fight goes on – inspired by these
women and more . . .
