ELECTION BLOW TO E.U..
PASTA LA VISTA
Italian voters? backing
for eurosceptic parties
ITALIAN voters dealt a huge
blow to the EU after more
than half backed eurosceptics.
The anti-euro Five Star Movement became the country?s biggest party with 32.5 per cent of
votes in an election result to
shock Brussels.
And there was a surge to the
stridently sceptic League, which landed
17.5 per cent and could now head up a
right-wing coalition.
Its leader Matteo Salvini mocked EU
chief
Jean-Claude
Juncker,
saying
?every time he speaks, I gain votes.?
He added: ?The euro is and remains
a wrong currency and a wrong choice.?
Meanwhile pro-EU socialists slumped
to their worst result in recent history,
mirroring a decline across Europe.
Former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi of
the Democratic Party conceded defeat.
Experts said the result will fuel calls
for a referendum on membership of
the euro and a much tougher approach
to migration.

?Even should Italy?s position within

The EU Commission tried to quell

Italy is expected to take weeks to
cobble together a coalition. Five Star,

IPSO FINDS AGAINST SUN ON PHONE CALLS
WARWICKSHIRE Police complained
to the Independent Press Standards
Organisation on behalf of a person
that the conduct of a journalist acting on behalf of The Sun breached
Clause 3 (Harassment) of the Editors? Code of Practice.
The complaint was upheld, and
IPSO has required The Sun to publish this decision as a remedy to the
breach.
The complainants represented a
victim in a criminal case concerning
allegations
of
non-recent
sex
offences. The complainant alleged
that the journalist?s enquiries during
the course of the trial had amounted
to harassment.
They said that the journalist had
called them, and they had said they
were ?not interested in giving a
story?; the reporter said he would
call back the next day, and the
complainant
told
him
?not
to
bother?. When they were contacted
again, they repeated that they had
no interest in speaking to the press.
The journalist called again, and was
told to stop calling.
The newspaper denied it had
breached the Code. It said that the
public interest is served when victims choose to speak to the press
about their experiences; finding that
its conduct breached the Code would
compromise other victims? rights to
freedom of expression. It said that
during the polite conversations, the
complainant had not shown any

Given that this was a story about

WILTSHIRE CIT
TY
CITY
Scare . . . Salisbury hospital
By NICK PARKER
and MIKE SULLIVAN
SUSPICIONS were growing last night that a
former Russian double
agent was poisoned in
a Kremlin-backed hit.
Investigators are trying to
identify the chemical which
left Sergei Skripal and a
woman ? believed to be
his daughter ? fighting for
life in a Wiltshire hospital.
The incident has echoes of
the killing of former KGB
officer Alexander Litvinenko,
poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 in London in 2006.
Emergency crews in protective suits decontaminated the
scene where Skripal, who came
to Britain in a spy swap involving flame-haired double agent
Anna Chapman, 36, was found.
The use of CBRN (chemical,
biological,
radiological
and
nuclear) suits fuelled speculation the substance could have
been radioactive or an airborne poison such as anthrax.
Last
night
Litvinenko?s
widow Marina told the Telegraph website: ?It looks similar
to what happened to my husband but we need more information. We need to know the
substance. Was it radioactive??
Skripal, 66, and his companion, thought to be in her 30s,
were found on Sunday afternoon in the Maltings shopping
centre in Salisbury.
They were slumped on a
bench and one of them had
been sick nearby.
Skripal was taken to the
city?s hospital by ambulance.
The woman was flown by air
ambulance and their arrival
sparked the shutdown of Salisbury District Hospital A&E.
Police declared a major incident and quarantined several
locations including the casualty
unit, where up to 12 people

Skripal awaits release in 2010 ? and in military uniform, right
WAS IT
began vomiting. As emergency
crews cleared the substance
left near the bench, others
were called to decontaminate
the hospital.
First reports suggested traces
of the opiate fentanyl ? a
synthetic toxin many times
stronger than heroin ? had
been detected at the scene.
But that was later linked
to an unconnected incident
involving another couple in the
shopping centre.
Witness Freya Church, who
was in the mall, said: ?It
looked like they?d been taking
something quite strong. On the
bench there was a couple, an
older guy and a younger girl.
She was sort of leant in on
him. It looked like she?d
passed out, maybe. He was
doing strange hand movements, looking up to the sky.?
Skripal was regarded as a
traitor in Russia where he was
jailed for 13 years in 2006.
He was said to have been
paid �,000 for passing information to British intelligence
since the 1990s.
Four years later, he was
freed and came to Britain in
the high-profile spy swap.
Chapman
headed
back
to
Russia as part of the deal.
The redhead, once ordered
to seduce US whistleblower
Edward Snowden, went on
to
become
a
model
and
media personality.
Sources said hardline president Vladimir Putin would
never have forgiven Skripal
after his conviction for treason.
Former KGB chief Putin once
said: ?Traitors always end in a
bad way. Usually from a drinking habit, or from drugs, right
in the street.? Litvinenko was
killed by two spies who slipped
radioactive polonium-210 into
his teapot at a Mayfair hotel
after he fled to Britain. Intelligence chiefs have declared a
vengeful

?probably

Skripal appears to have tried
to keep a low profile for the
past eight years after starting
a new life in Wiltshire.
But
inquiries
last
night
showed his name and address
were on the electoral roll and
open to public scrutiny.
It was unclear if he was still
viewed as an asset by British
intelligence or whether he had

He was exposed as a double

?His activities caused a significant blow to Russia.?
Another source said: ?This

Dying . . Litvinenko after poison
A PUBLIC inquiry into
the London killing of
ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko said he was poisoned by a Russian agent
? probably with President
Putin?s approval.
The radioactive polonium-210 that killed Litvinenko is believed to have
been given to him in a
cup of tea by ex-KGB
man Andrei Lugovoi after
the pair met at a hotel.
Litvinenko had been an
officer with the Federal
Security Service, (FSB)
successors to the KGB.
He fled to Britain in
2000 where he worked
for
MI6
after
being
granted asylum.
Litvinenko, 43, was a
fierce critic of the Putin
regime, having initially
fallen out with him over
corruption at the FSB.
In 2013 exiled Russian
billionaire Boris Berezovsky was found hanged at
his mansion in Sunninghill, Berks.

?STRANGLED?
Leanne McKie was a detective at Greater Manchester
Police where husband Darren, right, is an Inspector
Cop ?killed
wife..then
went to do
school run?
Chester crown court was told
he strangled the mother of his
three children last September
after she began to uncover the
truth about their finances.
Counsel said he then picked up
his kids from school, took them
to ballet and cricket practice
before giving them dinner.
He is then said to have waited
until the children were all in bed
before disposing of the 39-yearold?s body in a nearby lake.
A jury heard that all the while
he was continuing to text his
?dead wife? updating her on his
afternoon and evening.
McKie, of Greater Manchester
Police, denies the murder.
The jury heard how the couple
had been having serious financial
worries in the years before the
killing, which intensified despite
around �,000 of bailouts by
both their parents.
They were ?living well beyond
their means? and having bought
a new home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, just months before her death
had built up big debts trying to
pay for renovations.
By August 2017 they owed
around �,000 in loan and credit
card repayments, over �,000 to
builders and �,000 in loan
repayments.
Despite the worries McKie hid
their finances from his wife and
attempted to resolve their issue
by applying for 26 loans behind
her back, the court heard.
Weeks before her death parttime worker Leanne had confronted her husband over post
she had seen from finance firms.
The court heard she had sent
messages asking: ?Are we in a
mess??? Please tell me! I just
worry you are trying to protect
us again.? Her husband denied
the allegation and told her:
?Please stop doubting
me.?
doub
But on the day of her death
Leanne discovered he had been
accepted by a loan company,
using her name and
passport,
for
a
loan of �,000.
Leanne,
of
Greater
Manchester
Police?s
sexual
offences
unit, texted him
calling
him
a
?liar? after making
the discovery.
McKie
then
raced
home
to
confront his wife,
the jury heard.
Prosecutor Nigel
Power QC said:
?The game was
up. Not only were
they in terrible
financial trouble,
but the defendant
had been going
behind her back.?
Mr Power said
McKie
had
?taken his dead
wife to the lake,
dragged
her
along to the lake
side and dumped
her body in the
lake.?
The trial continues.

THE
SAYS
Are EU deaf?
FIRST came Brexit. Now a majority in
Italy?s election have backed Eurosceptic
parties. Will Brussels listen? We doubt it.
More sensible politicians and bureaucrats might take soaring anti-EU rage
across Europe as their cue to throttle
back on the grand federal project.
A sign that decades of unaccountable
interference in our democracies, while
abandoning millions to unemployment
and open borders, has been disastrous.
Brussels will doubtless take exactly
the wrong course and double-down.
For them the EU is a religion ? just as
it is here for diehard Europhiles who
would sacrifice Britain to Venezuelanstyle socialist squalor if it would only
keep us in the Brussels club.
Italy?s shock vote will probably harden
the EU?s resolve. They will be desperate
to keep their dream alive, via a crushing
victory over Brexit Britain.
Theresa May?s job may have got tougher.
Cam on down
DAVID Cameron ought perhaps to be the
last person giving his successor tactical
advice on negotiating with Brussels.
After all, they sent him packing,
empty-handed and humiliated.
But to give Mr Cameron credit he has
since changed his tune a little on Brexit.
Once, he said it would trigger World
War Three. Now he grudgingly admits
the referendum aftermath wasn?t as bad
as he?d feared. And he is conspicuously
absent from the increasingly unhinged
Remainer clique of ex-PMs and their
lackeys trying to reverse our decision.
If Mr Cameron can alert Mrs May to the
traps Brussels will set ? and the sneering
arrogance certain to confront her ? his
advice will be an asset.
Fat lot of good
WHEN the Government backed the idiotic
sugar tax, we warned it was just the start.
Now the nanny-state fanatics of Public
Health England want to reduce calories
in our sarnies, burgers, pizzas, crisps
and biscuits by a fifth.
That means making them smaller or
less tasty, as makers have with chocolate
and fizzy drinks. If that doesn?t work,
lose another fifth, maybe. Or a third.
The Government must flatly reject it.
Cutting our daily calories shouldn?t
mean Big Brother tampering with grub
we love. That erodes quality of life for all,
including those with no weight problem.
We need far better education about
our diet. We need more exercise and an
investment in sports facilities.
Diners and shoppers can be informed
about calories in a meal, and their daily
?allowance?, without being deprived of
treats like naughty infants.
Yes, Britain has an unhealthy weight
problem. But there?s a snobbery about
the professional meddlers at Public
Health England who seek to victimise
and bully the poorest for what they eat.
It?s stomach-churning.

AS OLD-STYLE THREATS GROW...
By
NICK TIMOTHY
DURING their war with
Russia, Ukrainian soldiers
watched Russian drones
flying
above
them.
Moments later rockets
rained down and within
15 minutes two entire
mechanised battalions had
been wiped out.
In plain English, that means
tanks, armoured vehicles and
military
transports
were
destroyed, and many hundreds
of soldiers were killed.
All in the space of 15
minutes.
It has been received wisdom
among many policymakers in
recent years that the only
wars we fight in future will be
ones we opt into, like Afghanistan and Iraq, the only
threats we face come from
terrorists
and
our
most
important defence capability is
cyber security.
But Russia?s behaviour in
Ukraine and Syria, and the
brutal strength of its force, is
a reminder that modern forms
of
traditional
warfare
are
every bit as dangerous.
The Government?s 2015 Strategic Defence and Security
Review reported on ?the resurgence of state-based threats?.
The
American
National
Defense Strategy published in
January drew a similar conclusion: ?Inter-state strategic
competition, not terrorism, is
now the primary concern in
US national security.?
And
those
threats,
as
General Sir Nick Carter, the
Head of the British Army, said
recently, come not only from
Russia, but China, Iran and
North Korea.
Britain must
stop sitting
on defence

Our military power
has diminished
We are not on the brink of
war with any country but, as
General Carter says, Russia
and others ?have become masters at exploiting the seams
between peace and war?.
Russia is behind smear campaigns and fake news in western
countries,
to
try
to
undermine our democracy and
society. It has hacked the German Parliament, the Danish
Ministry
of
Defence
and
numerous organisations here.
It threatens the transatlantic
cables that make the internet
and international communication possible.
It tests Britain?s defences by
flying into our airspace and
sailing into our waters.
Last year, it disrupted and
distorted
the
GPS
signal
across Scandinavia. Two years
ago, it allegedly encouraged a
coup and the attempted assassination of the prime minister
of Montenegro.
In the past seven years,
Russian submarine activity in
the
North
Atlantic
has
increased tenfold.
We
need
to
be
strong
enough to protect ourselves
and our allies against these
threats, and we need to be on
our guard to make sure that
Russia?s behaviour does not
spiral out of control and lead,
as history teaches us it could,
to a conventional war.
While most people in Britain
have focused, understandably,
on the dangers of Chinese
spying and Russian cyber
attacks,
we
have
barely
noticed
a
big
shift
in
military technology and strategy: The industrial-scale use
of highly accurate, long-range,
non-nuclear missiles, guided
by drones and satellites acting
as spotters.
In the past five years, the
Russians have increased the
number
of
platforms
for
launching long-range missiles
12 times over. They have
x30
rise in Russian
missiles with
range of

DEADLY . . . Russian cruise
missile fired at Syria
increased the number of missiles with a range of up to
4,000 kilometres 30 times over.
They have developed an
anti-ship
missile
that
is
reportedly faster than any
existing air defence systems.
And it is not just Russia ?
others, including China and
Iran,
have
made
similar
strategic decisions.
At the same time, our own
military power has diminished.
As a percentage of our
national
income,
defence
spending has fallen continuously since the Eighties.
As the Cold War came to an
end there was logic in this
approach, there was no need
to spend as much as we had
when the threat was severe.
But
now
the
threat
is
increasing again, so must
our capabilities.
There was a black hole in
the 2015 defence review, which
contained more commitments
than
the
defence
budget
could afford.
As a result, military chiefs
STAND-OFF . . . RAF
Typhoon and Russian ships
WARNING . . . General Carter
are considering cutting the
number of warships and helicopters, merging elite units
from the Royal Marines and
the Parachute Regiment, and
reducing the size of the Army
from 82,000 to 71,000 soldiers
or fewer.
Military figures point out,
however, that the problem is
not just about numbers, but
equipment. ?We only have
the kit for 40,000 active
soldiers, not 82,000,? one told
me. ?We are in a state of
profound demobilisation.?
Under General Carter, the
Army is upgrading its tanks
and infantry vehicles, but a lot
of equipment still dates back
to decisions that were taken in
the Eighties.
At a time when the Armed
Forces need to improve their
capabilities ? to deal with an
increasing number of serious
threats and to keep up with
technological changes that will
alter
the
nature
of
warfare ? they face having to
reduce what they can do now.
There are signs that the Government is prepared to take
the bull by the horns.
The Prime Minister has
taken the defence elements out
of
the
ongoing
National
Security Capability Review, so
ministers can look in more
detail at the defence budget.
As they do so, they need to
consider not just the black
hole created by the last
defence review, but the budgets
required
to
innovate,
invest in new technology, and
meet the new threats we face.
Because those threats are
serious.
?How much better defended
are NATO battalions and British troops compared to those
Ukrainians?? a military figure
asked
me
recently,
before
answering his own question:
?Not very much at all.?
At a time when our principal ally, the United States, is
led by an unpredictable and
unreliable president, and when
the security of Europe is once
more under threat, the need to
restore our military competitive advantage is vital.
And
as
we
leave
the
European Union and ministers
work to turn talk of ?global
Britain? into a reality, this
is one obvious place for them
to start.
Our Armed Forces must be
given the firepower they need
to defend Britain, our interests
and our allies abroad. Their
budget must increase.

WIND-UP RADIO
INVENTOR DEAD
TREVOR Baylis who invented the
wind-up radio has died at 80.
The boffin, who got an OBE in 1997,
suffered from Crohn?s disease.
Trevor came up with more than 250
products, including a shoe that generates enough electricity from walking
to charge a phone.
But he was best known for building
a radio that could be powered by the user winding a
crank, rather than through
batteries or a external electrical source.
He designed it in 1991
after
seeing
a
TV
programme about Aids in
Africa.
The
inventor
Pioneer . . . Trevor Bayliss
By PATRICK GYSIN
believed it would help halt the disease
by making educational broadcasts
more accessible.
From 1994 the radios were manufactured by disabled workers in Cape
Town, South Africa.
But in 2013 Trevor said he was
?totally
broke?
because
a
patent law loophole meant he
had lost profits to copycats.
He also worked as a film
and TV stuntman.
He died of natural causes in
Twickenham, South London,
where he was born.

HEALTH chiefs plan to
slash the calories in
family favourites like
pizza, burgers, crisps
and ready meals by a
fifth to battle Britain?s
bulging waistlines.
Public Health England
says food firms must
either use less fattening
ingredients
or
cut
product sizes to help
beat obesity.
Supermarkets, manufacturers and high street chains such
as McDonald?s will be expected
to hit the 20 per cent target in
the next five years.
But critics yesterday said the
PHE drive is nanny state madness ? and predicted shoppers
will be ripped off as manufacturers
cut
sizes
without
reducing prices.
Christopher Snowdon, of the
Institute of Economic Affairs,
said: ?The nanny state zealots
at PHE have lost the plot.
?The only way companies can
meet these targets is by shrinking products. We?ve seen this
happen with chocolate bars
and other sugary treats.
?Now the Great British Rip
Off is being extended to all
food products.?
PHE says children eat up to
500 too many calories a day ?
equivalent to an extra meal.
And two in three adults and
one in three children are too
fat, costing the NHS at least
�illion annually.
Duncan Selbie, PHE chief
executive, said: ?The simple
truth is on average we need to
eat less. Children and adults
routinely eat too many calories
and it?s why so many are overweight or obese.
?It is not an attack on overweight folk, it is about getting
more options and extending
knowledge and more choices.?
PHE says if the 20 per cent
reduction is met by 2024,
35,000 lives could be saved
over the next 25 years.
It is targeting 13 popular
foods that are not already
in
the
Government?s
sugar
reduction programme.
These include pizzas, snacks,
ready meals including sandwiches, some meat products,
cooking sauces, chips, crisps
and ?composite salads? such as
hummus or coleslaw.
Officials have hinted food
firms who do not slim down
their products could be hit by
taxes or new regulations.
PHE?s chief nutritionist Dr
Alison Tedstone said: ?We have
moved on from obesity affecting a small section of society, it
is the norm now.?
Professor Russell Viner, of
the Royal College of Paediatrics, said: ?Our food portions,
particularly
pizzas
and
hamburgers, are simply much
bigger than they were in our
parent?s time.?
Alison
Cox,
of
Cancer
Research UK, said: ?We welcome this initiative to make
some of these foods healthier.?

A HEALTHY diet does not
offset the harm of too
much salt, say experts.
They found the vitamins
and minerals in fruit and
veg fail to counteract its
full effects.
It raises blood pressure
which is linked to a
higher risk of heart
attack and stroke.
Researchers at Imperial
College London analysed
the diet and urine of
4,680 adults.
They say people should
restrict salt to 6g a day ?
around one teaspoon. The
average is 8.5g.
They want food firms to
slash the amount in ready
meals and snacks.
Study leader Dr Queenie
Chan said: ?We have a

salt intake and high blood
pressure. This research

THE first hint of snow

So God only knows
what the body count was

Then, just when you
think nothing more can
shock you, up pipes the

F?BOOK PERV POLL
FACEBOOK is under fire over a
survey asking users whether
paedophiles should be allowed to
groom children on its site.
The social media giant put out
the multiple choice questionnaire
to thousands of users. One question asked what the rules should
be if a man messaged a girl of
14 asking for sexual pictures.
None of the answers was to tell
the police. Senior Labour MP
Yvette Cooper said: ?This is a
stupid and irresponsible survey.?
Facebook said the survey had
been withdrawn from its site.

Doctors told him he had
prostate cancer that had
already spread to his ribs,
hips, pelvis and leg.
Bill says he visited his
GP after a change in his
?pee pattern? and a year
of dull pain. Now he
wishes he had acted sooner.
The 62-year-old told the
Radio Times: ?I?m cross
with myself. Maybe if I?d
got it earlier and stopped
it at the prostate, I?d be in
a much better state.?
He also told of his
heartbreak at breaking the
news to wife Sarah and
his children Henry, 29,
Will, 28, and Flora, 26.
Bill admitted: ?Those first
few days were probably
the worst of my life. It?s
hard to know what to say,
when you want to protect
them. That first moment is
a shell shock.?
Bill, who hosts Songs Of
Praise, is being treated by
the Royal Marsden hospital
in London. Despite doctors
telling him the average life
expectancy for those with
bone cancer is just ten
years, he is not gloomy.
He added: ?You have to
be positive. I know I?m
not going to get cured and
I?m realistic about the
long-term prospects, but
they?re not bad.
?It takes a lot
of dealing with?
?The only thing is, I
don?t want the rest of my
life to be defined by the
illness.
?I would like to see at
least one grandchild and
there?s still lots of time for
that to happen.?
Ironically, Bill was told
the news as he finished
his episode of The Great
Celebrity Bake Off For
Stand Up To Cancer on
Channel 4, starting tonight.
Show bosses will now
add a short filmed update
about his condition to
the appeal programme. Bill
said: ?When I was making
my cupcakes, I had the
disease and didn?t know it.?
He
is
now
speaking
about his condition to try
to convince other men to
get checked for prostate
cancer. But he says he is
still coming to terms with it.
Bill added: ?You go to
bed and wake up in the
morning and it comes to
you again. I?ve still got
cancer ? it wasn?t a bad
dream. And that takes a
lot of dealing with.
?I need to plan to

GP?s TOO FAR GONE
A FATHER and son are being
struck off their GP surgery?s list
after 50 years because it moved
less than a third of a mile.
Robert and Peter Payne, 87, got
a letter saying the new 1.4mile
distance is too significant. It used
to be 1.1miles from where they
live but moved premises in 2013.
Robert, 52 ? registered there all

The Bower Mount Medical
Practice in Maidstone, Kent, said
the distance increases time for

THE world?s fastest bird
is making a comeback in
Britain, research shows.
The number of peregrine falcons, which can
dive at 200mph, has hit a
high and they are starting to thrive in manmade environments.
The survey, in the British Trust for Ornithology
journal Bird Study, estimates the breeding population at 1,769 pairs ? up
22 per cent on 2002.
The increase is largely
due to more birds breeding on man-made structures on lowlands.
Large increases have

AS MORE OLDER COUPLEE
AFTER two divorces Karen
Krizanovich decided at the
age of 53 to try her luck on
dating apps . . . and soon
discovered a keen audience
of young men wanting to
bed her. Here the Londonbased writer tells her story.
THE number of divorces was
highest last year among men and
women aged 45 to 49.

A COP boss was criticised yesterday after a
fire engine went to his
house to ?secure? his
patio after it was damaged in a car crash.
Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold
texted his local fire chief
for advice over the structural damage in Hartwell,
Northants.
Mr Mold?s spokesman
said the 11.30pm visit was
?common
practice?
for
such a collision. But a
neighbour said: ?It seems
like a job for a builder.?
6Tip: Don?t use a
celeb?s pic unless
you are that celeb7
6Saddest profiles
used old photos
... even Polaroids7
If current trends continue, newly
divorced people will be getting back in
the dating game in their fifties.
So, for all those who can remember
actually dialling a phone number,
where?s best to find love?
My friends advised using the app
Bumble. It?s like Tinder if Tinder had
brushed its teeth.
Tinder is weird and random.
The first time on Tinder, I was
matched by some chap who, within
minutes, asked me to beat him up.
I stopped in the street to unmatch
him only to have my phone stolen by a
thief on a moped. And so I was saved.
God works in mysterious ways.
Tinder was not quite a nest of
psychos but it came very close.
Even more amazing was that friends
told me they?d found really nice men
on sites with absolutely the worst
names. Yet who am I, a 53-year-old
woman, to deny happiness found at
such places as toyboywarehouse.com ?
which is, I guess, a site aimed at
younger men who like older women.
Why date an older woman? I
struggled to come up with any good
reasons, outside of the fact that many
of us have our own money, don?t want
children, don?t want marriage, aren?t
afraid of nudity, can drive, cook, drink
and scold.
We don?t suffer fools. We are
educated, or experienced at least. In
accomplishments, many of us are the
man we hoped to marry.
?Stop saying you went to
the University of Life?
We may not always triumph over our
younger, marriage-desiring, more volatile, extremely fertile and higherpitched
rivals,
but
it?s
not
a
competition, is it?
Research done by Dr Hayley Wright
from Coventry University confirms that
sex remains as appealing and important to us across a lifetime, just as the
idea older people doing it seems nasty
and repugnant to those who think they
will stay young forever.
This is why what is sexy must shift
to include the older demographic. You
will be elderly too if you?re lucky.
Your skin will sag. Your plastic
surgery will be bad. And yet you?ll still
want love and sex.
According to Dr Wright: ?People
don?t like to think that older people
have sex, but we need to challenge this
conception at a societal level.?
A study by Trinity College Dublin
showed that nearly 60 per cent of over
50s are having regular sex, some more
than twice a week. If that makes you
sick, stop thinking about it.
There is also anecdotal evidence,
according to therapist and author of
the book Couples Therapy, Barbara
Bloomfield, that sex lives of those in
their 40s and 50s are actually better
than younger years. Yes, better.
This scientific encouragement should
be enough to shove confident women
towards apps like Bumble which have
someone for everyone. Unlike Tinder,
some blokes on Bumble have finished
secondary school and actually know the
difference between you?re and your.
You set the distance, age and gender
range. If there?s a match, women must
make the first move. Designed like a
game, the players only have to upload
some photos and write an optional sentence about themselves.
Then they can swipe left or right on
profiles, left for ?I feel sorry for you?
or right which means, ?How fast can
you get here?? My friends don?t swipe
right unless the chap?s photos are
perfect. This is rare.
Oddly, a recent survey by The App
Developers, an app agency, discovered
that men are five times more likely to
download a dating app than women.
This implies that millions of men

By KAREN KRIZANOVICH
photos, some of which I?m
sure were Polaroids.
Other chaps posted pics
of celebrities they thought
they looked like. Don?t put
up a photo of a celeb unless
you are that celebrity. That?s
a tiny dating tip from me.
With older blokes showing no interest in me, I
figured my time was up.
So imagine my surprise to find younger
men seemed to like me.
On the app, I toyed
with my profile bio to
make it accurate yet
funny for their age
group.
At first I wrote: ?Your
mum told me to swipe
right.? The millennials got
the joke. I was aware that I was
chatting with someone who, in another
possible world, could have been my
son.
But that was impossible as I had
forgotten to have children.
My friends made jokes about the age
gaps until I said: ?Hey, I?m swiping
right on your son tonight, but don?t
worry, we won?t marry.?
?Sooner you get used to
rejection the better?
Despite being of higher mileage, I
was often accused of being a catfish ?
that is, someone whose photos were too
good to be real.
My pics were genuine, recent and not
particularly sexy. Maybe I looked fake
because I didn?t paint on my eyebrows?
I have no idea. I did get the occasional
nasty boy. They?d hit at my age
because it was an easy target. ?Why
are your age settings so low?? one
snapped at me. ?Why are your settings
so high?? I replied.
We all have a fixed idea about what
kind of person we?d like to meet, but
beyond that, I treated the apps as a
social experiment in the wide variety
of people dating in the UK.
If the chap texted in an articulate
manner and wasn?t a jerk, I chatted. I
matched once with an army veteran
who had two prosthetic limbs: I didn?t
notice until a friend pointed them out.
Should I have?
For those who find themselves back
on the market, apps can be a real
alternative to waiting for some toothless
male to talk to you at a pub.
Finding someone to love is hard, of
course, but apps can make the whole
endeavour enjoyable, faster and easier
? and less complicated than sites which
ask you a million questions about what
you?re looking for.
The important thing is to realise that
dating hasn?t really changed since
when you first did it.
Everyone gets rejected and the sooner
you get used to that, the better.
If you put your pride aside, you?ll
find an amazing number of quality
single people out there.
According to dating site eharmony?s
research, the next decade?s daters are
going to be mainly in the 55-64 age
range. Stats show a 30 per cent rise in
single older potential mates.
And that?s great if you?re looking for
someone in that range.
I?m not. I?m off the market and
happy. And no, I didn?t meet him on
an app.

TRIBBLE AHEAD
2 STRIKES
AND 500k
ARE OUT
SOMEONE must have been
handing out JK ROWLING?s
invisibility cloaks on Sunday
night ? as fans of her TV show
kept disappearing.
The second series of Strike
? the BBC adaption of the
Harry Potter author?s crime
thriller ? saw 500,000 viewers
turn off at the weekend.
While the first episode saw
its audience peak at
5.5million, just 4.7million
tuned in to watch TOM BURKE
and HOLLIDAY GRAINGER
play private detective
Cormoran Strike and his
assistant Robin on Sunday.
It makes for grim reading as
the first episode of the
original series pulled in
8.2million viewers when it hit
screens back in August.
Complaints from
disappointed fans included
the plot being too complicated
and inaudible dialogue.
One viewer tweeted: ?I did
look at episode two of Strike
but I don?t think it worked.
?The plot was tough to
follow, real tension and
suspense missing, and the
chemistry between the two
leads didn?t gel.?
A TV source said: ?The BBC
made a big song and dance
about Strike but it?s
haemorrhaged viewers from
the first episode, and even
more from series one.
?JK Rowling and the BBC
are said to have several series
up their sleeves, but if they
keep dropping viewers at this
rate there will be no one left.?
Viewers will be hoping for
more of that trademark JK
wizardry next time.
soapbox
THE Carters? feud with Aidan
rumbles on in EASTENDERS ?
with Mick becoming
increasingly worried about
what his foe is planning.
Fleeing Walford seems to be
Mick?s only option, but he is
determined to have it out with
Aidan one final time.
The Queen Vic landlord
eventually takes Mel?s risky
advice of calling in a hitman to
get rid of Aidan. But will Mick
go through with it?
Meanwhile, over on
HOLLYOAKS, Prince and Lily?s
wedding day hangs in the
balance after the groom was
kidnapped on his stag do.
Luckily, he manages to
escape and, stealing a
Saturday Night Fever-esque
suit en route, races to the
church.
Let?s hope Lily is still
waiting for him.
MEGAN McKENNA may want to avoid the
new series of Towie.
The reality show regular?s ex-boyfriend
PETE WICKS has already moved on with
former Miss Great Britain SHELBY TRIBBLE,
left, who?s been snapped up for the show.
Pete, below with Megan, started dating
model Shelby earlier this year after the bitter
split from his ex, which caused her to take a
break from the series to focus on her music
career. Pals close to the new couple believe
their romance could be the real deal, as
they plan to go public in front of the
cameras. An insider said: ?Shelby is
already well-known in Essex and
producers believe she will be a perfect
new addition to the cast.
?She first made a name for herself by
winning Miss Great Britain in 2014
before briefly dating Leicester City?s
DANNY SIMPSON.?
Making things official on Towie, of all
places, is bound to end in tears.

FERN PROPOSITIONED BY TELLY STAR
FERN BRITTON has had
some of the most highprofile gigs in TV on This
Morning and Mr & Mrs.
But she has revealed her
journey to the top was by no
means easy ? and she was even
propositioned by a male TV
star as she tried out for a role
in the Eighties.
She said: ?I was chosen to do
a programme in London.
?I was taken out to lunch
with the rest of the team and
the star of the show ? a guy ?
was sitting there.
?We had done the lunch and
we had met the team, it was all
very nice and I was 23 or 24.
?Pudding was finishing and
everyone was smoking ? you
could do that then. This guy
looked at me and said, ?I
wonder how long it will be
before I am having an affair
with you. Because I do have a
very big c**k?.?
The stunned TV star, inset,
now married to TV chef PHIL
VICKERY, immediately rushed
home to tell her mum before
turning down the job.
She added: ?It was not
the first time a man had
made some comment.
?Every one of us has
been in a situation somewhere
where
it
has
become
uncomfortable
and inappropriate.
?You think, ?It was my
fault as I turned up for
the
meeting
or
agreed
to
have
lunch?.
?That is slowly
disappearing. We have been
quietly groomed for centuries
without knowing it.?
Fern, whose most recent role
was hosting ITV cookery contest Culinary Genius alongside
GORDON RAMSAY, also revealed
how she now struggles to hear
thanks to getting older.
In an interview, she told
comic SARAH MILLICAN: ?I am
going to come clean. I wear
hearing aids now.
?These are so cool that
they are radio-linked

Dead good sex
with funeral guy
Dear Deidre
topic4today
I?VE been having great sex
with a guy I first met at my
nan?s funeral ? but I want
more than that.
My
grandmother
died
two
months ago. This man brought his
grandmother along to the funeral,
as she used to go to bingo with
my nan.
He came over to chat to me at
the pub after the service. He is 27
and I am 23 and we were the
youngest there by some way. I was
glad to be talking to someone who
wasn?t at least twice my age.
He started flirting with me and
we got along so well that after he
drove his gran home he came
back to chat for longer.
We swapped numbers. I should
have been thinking about my nan
when I went home that night but I
couldn?t stop thinking about him.
He had told me he worked on
the oil rigs and was heading back
to work soon but he texted me the
next day.
He said that he was thinking
about me and that he was due
some leave in two weeks and
wondered if I could meet up with
AROUND 500,000 children
need protection from abuse,
according to the NSPCC.

a child, my e-leaflet Worried A

him. So when he got back he took
me out for dinner, then we went
back to my flat.
He kissed me and we had
incredible sex ? and carried on
doing so most nights for the next
two weeks. His leave was over all
too quickly.
He has been messaging me from
the rig saying he just wants to
have fun but he doesn?t want me
to feel he is using me for sex.
He said he loved the nights we
slept together and he wants to do
it again.
I?d love to see him again but I?d
like the full package ? dating him,
a sex life and everything else.
I feel so confused about whether
he wants a relationship or not.
Can you work it out?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Any guy who says
he ?just wants to have fun? isn?t
planning on committing to anything
like a relationship.
The key question is why. Is it
because he feels he can?t handle the
strain of a relationship alongside his
work schedule?
Would he worry about what you
might be getting up to while he?s away?
Has he been hurt in the past and has it
made him wary?
Assuming he is a free agent, tell him
you?d like to see him again. Say you
can cope with a busy work schedule if
he can, but casual relationships aren?t
your thing. Be firm about that or you
are likely to get hurt.
If he?s still interested, suggest you
two meet so you can see if you can
have any sort of future together.
While you?re waiting for his return,
don?t hang everything on him being
the love of your life.
Get out with your friends regularly
because there may well be more
suitable guys you can meet who are
offering more from the off.

romantic gestures but it

Maybe he feels inadequate as it never occurs to
him, so be specific. Say a
bunch of flowers the first

breakfast in bed on Sundays

Dear Deidre
IT breaks my heart to see my
little girl standing alone in the
school playground.
She?s nine and always tries
to do the right thing. When
two of her friends fell out, one
of the other mums contacted
me to see if my daughter
could help. She stepped in
and got the two girls talking
but now they won?t talk to her.
It?s gone on for a few
weeks now. She?s
heartbroken. I watched her
try to talk to a different
couple of girls today but they
blanked her. She looked at
me and it was all she could
do to stop crying.
She?s already dreading the
summer term as they have
trips planned. She is saying
she doesn?t want to go and
no one will talk to her.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It?s awful
to see our children suffer
from bullying but the school
can make a difference.
Talk with your daughter?s
teacher and ask the school
to do some work with the
children to sort this. Getting
the children to work
together on a project can
help, for example. There is a
helpful anti-bullying guide
for school staff at
antibullyingpro.com.
Liaise with other parents
about play dates and clubs
your daughter could join.

0 DEIDRE SAYS: Are you
sure the sex you have is
satisfying for her? My guess
is that?s the problem.
What works for women
can be quite different from
what works for men ? and
from what you see in porn.
Foreplay for women starts
with compliments first thing
in the morning, lots of help
around the home and lots of
sensuous touching.

orgasm most if not every

MY ex-wife assaulted me in

while my little boy stood
watching and crying.
She won?t let me see him
because I can?t afford to give
her �0 a week for him.
I?ve been off work with
stress and can?t afford to pay
her on top of my rent.
I?m 37 and my ex is 35. Our
son is two. I went to the
house as she had refused me
access but she went ballistic
and hit me, splitting my lip.
I?ll never forget the look on
my son?s face as he stood in
his nappy at the door. I?m
banned from seeing him and
I miss him so much.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It?s so

see his parents at war. Write

you two need to get help to

SPECIAL
EIGHT MOMENTS WHEN
WOMEN STOLE THE SHOW
IT was the year of the women at
Sunday?s Oscars.
The #MeToo and Time?s Up
movements fighting sexual
harassment took centre stage,
prompting both tears and cheers.
There were also lots of laughs ?
unintentional in the case of a
gigantic grammar fail in Emma
Watson?s new tattoo.
And intentional in the case of
Helen Mirren?s gleeful downing of
a shot on the red carpet.
Here, LUCY JONES looks at the
top eight moments when women
stole the show.
FRANCES McDORMAND
landed the Best Actress
gong, but she should have
scooped an award for her
impassioned speech too.
She asked every woman
nominated to stand up,
urging a front-row A-lister:
?Meryl, if you do it, everyone
else will. C?mon.? She then
demanded power-brokers in
the audience get in contact
with the women standing to
back their new projects.
WHEN host Jimmy Kimmel
cracked a joke about Emma
Stone?s film La La Land wrongly
being announced as winner of
Best Picture last year, J-Law
giggled and pointed at her pal.
The close friends spent the
ceremony laughing and
knocking back wine together.
l
u
b
a
The F
HELEN MIRREN was
spotted knocking back a
shot on the red carpet.
When asked what it
was, she declared: ?It was
just given to me ?
fantastic, a nice shot of
tequila for the nerves.?
Helen clearly needed
Dutch courage before
modelling a jet ski during
Jimmy Kimmel?s opening
monologue. He promised
to give the machine to
the winner who gave the
shortest speech.
THREE of
disgraced
exec Harvey
Weinstein?s
most prominent
accusers, Ashley
Judd, Annabella
Sciorra and Salma
Hayek, left, praised
the ongoing shake-up
of Hollywood.
An emotional Salma
declared: ?We salute
those unstoppable
spirits who kicked ass
and broke through the
biased perceptions
against their gender,
their race and
ethnicity to tell their
stories.?
37
EMMA WATSON showed her
support for the anti-sexual
harassment movement with a new
tattoo ? but she?s clearly not backing grammar.
Her forearm inking dedicated to the Time?s Up
campaign missed out the apostrophe.
Luckily, the mistake only drew more attention
to the movement the 27-year-old former Harry
Potter actor is so passionate about.
She launched the UK arm of the Time?s Up
Fund, to provide subsidised legal support to
those who have faced sexual harassment or
assault at work, before the Baftas last month.
And she even donated �illion to the cause.
Nice work ? but Emma definitely needs to fire
whoever drew on the semi-permanent tattoo.
RITA MORENO arrived
on the red carpet in
the very same dress
she wore to the
1962 awards.
The actress had first
worn the gown on the
night she picked up
the Best Supporting
Actress gong for West
Side Story, far right
with her co-star
George Chakiris.
Rita, 86, admitted
she was surprised
the dress was still in
a wearable state,
explaining: ?I thought
it would tarnish ? it?s
been hanging in my
closet.?
COMEDIAN Tiffany Haddish
arrived on the red carpet in
heels ? but by the time it got
to her big moment on stage
her feet clearly needed a break.
So she swapped them for comfy Ugg
slippers when she presented the
awards for Best Short Documentary
and Best Live Action Short.
Even more proof that she?s
just like us is that she was
in an Alexander
McQueen gown she
has already worn
twice to big events.
Tiffany has
previously
explained that
since it cost nearly
�000, she meant
to get her money?s
worth out of it.

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tomato pur閑
2 tbsp bouillon powder
1 tsp coconut sugar

METHOD: In a large saucepan

translucent, for approximately
5 minutes.
Add the sliced leeks and saut�
for 3 minutes with the onions.
Add the cubed carrots,
continue to saut� for 3 minutes

Add the celery stalks and bay
leaf then bring back to a boil for
3-5 minutes. Reduce the heat to
medium and cook for 40 minutes.
If you find there is a lot of broth
on the top, use a large spoon to
skim it off. Remove from the heat
and cool slightly. Discard the
celery stalk.
Using a hand-held blender,
pur閑 the soup in the pot or
pur閑 in batches in a blender or

If the soup is too thick, add a
little extra boiling water.
Garnish with vegetable crisps,
a drizzle of olive oil and finely
chopped chives.

IT is International Women?s Day on
Thursday ? so what are you doing to
celebrate?
The event exists so we can honour
the epic social, economic, cultural and
political achievements of women.
And CoppaFeel! is totally on board,
spreading boob love and awareness.
But this week we are also chatting
cervixes with our pals at Jo?s Trust ? a
charity offering support and
information to women and their loved
ones affected by cervical cancer and
cervical abnormalities.
Breast and cervical cancer are the
two most common cancers in women
under 35 in the UK, yet our research
has found high numbers unaware of
their risk and the symptoms.
We are teaming up to talk about
everything boobs and cervixes on
Thursday, with a Facebook Live event
at 11.30am aiming to increase
understanding and tackle myths and
stigma around the cancers.
Cervical cancer is one of the only
cancers that can be prevented and
early diagnosis of both breast and
cervical cancers means treatment can
be extremely successful.
Yet sadly, only half of young women
feel confident to check their boobs
and only half can identify bleeding
during or after sexual intercourse as a
symptom of cervical cancer.
Through this partnership, I learnt
that 76 per cent of young women
would see a doctor for a lingering cold
while just 48 per cent would if they
bled outside of a period, the most
common cervical cancer symptom.
I?ve written before about the
importance of going for a smear test
and am happy to say it again: Go to
your smear.
We are uniting with Jo?s Trust to
encourage and empower young
women to look after their health and
get to know their bodies, seeking
medical advice if they notice
something isn?t right.
Through Facebook Live, the
charities want to facilitate an open
chat about the topic, providing
opportunities for women to ask
questions and understand where
support can be accessed.
GP Dr Rory Taylor, Dr Emily Andre
(who I can only hope checks Peter
Andre?s boobs for him) and bloggers
Megan Gilbride and Carly Rowena will
be taking part, having an honest and
open conversation demystifying the
diseases, providing women with the
information they need to look after
their health.
So if you?re free at 11.30am, come
join us on Facebook to chat boobs and
bits ? and how great women are.

The very heart of sport is

IS sport about talent or about

being found out?
Team Sky was so respected and
brought us great delight.
But now, after an MPs? report
concluded that the team had
?crossed a line? by giving drugs
to enhance performance and not
just treat a medical condition,
there are serious questions about
whether it put drugs above
reputation.

THERESA MAY?S Brexit speech
was passionate and forceful. But
it will likely be met with the
usual arrogance and indifference

Leaving the EU without a deal
is our last resort ? and if
Brussels holds to its stubborn
insistence on everything being
exactly as it dictates, then no
deal looks likely.
It?s a shame that Mrs May
didn?t lay out a back-up plan for
a no-deal exit. It would have
shown Brussels that its relentless
stubbornness will only lead to
our leaving without a deal.

Great Britain has no plan for

?no deal is better than a bad
deal?. I have little doubt she will
be tested on that statement.

Everything that makes you who you are is ready to be rewarded
as thinking, feeling Mercury and Venus move into your sign.
Resist any attempt to tone down your ideas or image, be proud
of who you are, and the world will turn your way. In love terms,
this puts you back in charge of a bond: Old, new or just starting.
Your thoughts run deep, engaging all kinds of people. You have
a calm certainty that gives everyone strength, and it is a perfect
time to test-drive new ways of being a family. If you?re in love, a
secret uncertainty will disappear. Single? Generous Jupiter
sets up a love meeting where cash prizes are being shared out.
Spending more time with people who make you feel good helps
your plans. Your communication style is extra powerful, and
your words and ideas get through to people like never before.
But when it comes to love, you can be a dreamy romantic
whether you want to get back with a former partner or move on.
Finding a balance between success and satisfaction is your key
talent, as you can self-select the best projects and people to fill
both areas in your life. Taking on a task for a trial period can
work out well for everyone. Jupiter and Mars link the two love
zones of your chart promising fun, passion and commitment.
Time to add action to creative dreams and focus on the ones
that can make money. You have an ability to be original and
practical that has such high value. In love, two people need to
make a choice, not one. Single? Venus, in your truth-detecting
chart, arrows an Aries with an ?R? name for genuine love.
You can stop a family or other group splitting into factions by
casting your spell to keep people talking and working together.
A shared decision is so close and will be good for everyone. If
you?re single, a new romance starts where two very different
groups of people combine for a charity football match.
Words that feel impossible to say can flow better in a one-to-one
setting, so arrange a meet and map out a careful message to be
sure you say what you mean. Personal changes that seemed
tough glide into place. Romance that seemed to be cooling is
back to its best. Single? New love has your favourite accent.
A working world that calls on all of your skills opens up and any
doubts you have disappear as you can convince a key person
you?re ready to step up. On the subject of love, Jupiter matches
you with someone whose date of birth is close to yours. Established partners can bring back that loving feeling.
Your sector of sport, leisure and pleasure is full of positivity and
doing things you really enjoy can create fabulous chances.
With the moon in the hidden zone of your chart, it?s time to
unpin your heart from your sleeve and add a touch of mystery to
your smile to attract someone already on your romance radar.
Venus and Mercury match up to lend speed to changes at home
and take you towards a family line-up, or a shared address, that
is not what you expect. Building a feeling of respect in a relationship has a passion bonus. If finding new love is a priority,
then a friend who knows the real you makes the introductions.
Talking or writing in your own way is your best chance to really
shine, so be bold and say what you want to say, and soon ? it will
be life-changing. A journey of less than two miles, shared with a
neighbour, opens your eyes and your mind to a working world
you?d love. Attraction beams from some wide-set green eyes.
Logical Mercury may try to move love out of your life but you
don?t need to say yes as you also have sensual Venus on hand
to help you navigate some stormy passion, learning about
yourself as you do. This makes for an exciting day ? if you?re
single, share it with an Aries who can always make you smile.

Snug . . . OAP?s revamped home
L&G HOME
LOAN FOR
ELDERLY
LEGAL & GENERAL is
expanding the pilot of a
mortgage allowing equityrich elderly people to stay
in their homes for longer
in good living conditions.
Its property refurbishment
lifetime mortgage is secured
against the customer?s
home and used to fund
essential repairs and
refurbishment that will
bring the property up to
the Government?s decent
homes standards.
It is claimed one in five
homes lived in by OAPs
fail to meet this standard.
A type of equity release
mortgage, it is repaid from
the sale of the home when
the last applicant dies or
moves into long-term care.
L&G says it suits those
who are ?income-poor but
equity-rich?.
The financial services
giant recently helped one
autistic applicant in his
70s to refurbish his house
so he could live in comfort
and avoid going into social
service care. The expanded
pilot will be in London,
Bristol, Oxford and the
Black Country.
CEO Nigel Wilson said:
?The UK faces a crisis
with older customers living
in dilapidated homes which
they don?t want to leave
but can?t afford to repair.?

AN ex-DEUTSCHE BANK
trader has been fined

for his role in the Libor
rigging scandal.
Guillaume Adolph tried to
manipulate the London
interbank rate ? which is
used to value trillions of
dollars of securities ?
from 2008 to 2010.
The Financial Services
Authority said: ?His
misconduct threatened the
integrity of important
benchmarks. He should
have no further role in the
financial services industry.?
In an statement Adolph ?
nicknamed Gollum ? said
he was ready to move on
outside of finance.
NEW FACE

TRINITY MIRROR, publisher
of the Daily Mirror, plans
to change its name to
Reach ? to reflect its
increased scale after it
buys the Daily Express and
Daily Star titles.
The name change will be
subject to a vote at the
group?s annual shareholders?
meeting on May 3.
Chief executive Simon
Fox said: ?We think this is
a name which better
reflects what we do and
what our ambitions are.?
The group also published
2017 results showing
revenue fell 12.6 per cent
to �3.2million and profit
before tax dipped to
�4.7million. It blamed a
tough trading environment.

Growing gains
lSERVICE
SECTOR
PERKS UP
THE
powerhouse
services
sector perked up last month
as economic pressures eased.
It points to a steady expansion
for the UK at the start of
the year.
The respected IHS MARKIT/CIPS UK
SERVICES Purchasing Managers? Index
(PMI) hit 54.5 in February, up from
53.0 in January and well above economists? expectations of 53.2. A reading
above 50 indicates growth. The sector
includes hotels, restaurants, tourism
and financial services, and accounts
for around 80 per cent of the UK
economy. It was boosted to a fourmonth high by a jump in new sales
as the global economy strengthens
and cost pressures eased.
Chris Williamson, IHS Markit?s
chief business economist, said: ?The
service sector overtook manufacturing
in February as the fastest growing
part of the economy for only the

thanks to the combination of the
largest rise in services activity for
four months and waning growth of
factory output.
?The PMI surveys so far point to
the economy growing by nearly 0.4
per cent in the first quarter to
indicate that a resiliently steady pace
of expansion has been maintained.?
In another sign that economic
clouds could be lifting, the decline in
new car sales slowed in February.

CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL COUNTDOWN - SEVEN DAYS TO GO
By STEVE JONES
PUNTERS have got
stuck in to mud-lover
Saint Calvados to KO
the big Irish raiders
in the Arkle.
They believe the Harry
Whittington-trained runner can defy recent trends
and become the first fiveyear-old to win the twomile thriller since Voy
Por Ustedes 12 years ago.
Coral have cut Saint
Calvados from 9-2 to
3-1 as backers clearly
believe he will get his
favoured soft ground.
Yet to give Whittington (right) his first
Festival winner, Saint
Calvados must see off
Willie Mullins? redhot 5-4 favourite
SAINT GOES MARCHING IN
Mudlark Calvados cut but it?s Sceau disappointing for King
Footpad and Henry De
Bromhead?s 2-1 shot
Petit Mouchoir.
However one
rival Saint
Calvados will
not have to
worry about is
Sceau Royal.
He had been as
short as 11-2 but
Alan King has
been forced to
rule him out after ?a slight
setback?. King said: ?I?m
gutted. We may decide to
put him away for the season. If you push now you
may have no horse left.?
Saint Calvados (far right)
is the star of Whittington?s
Festival team of five, also
set to include Bigmartre in
the JLT Novices Chase.
Whittington said: ?Saint
Calvados is a real profes-
sional and very full of himself sometimes. He gets so
fresh after a couple days off
we have to keep him busy
all the time.
?He gets on very well with
Aidan Coleman. The two are
a dream, they have so much
confidence in each other.?
The Arkle will be a thrilling spectacle as the three
market leaders like to dominate. Saint Calvados has
been so good he has barely
seen another horse in his
three wins over fences.
Whittington said: ?It will
be a super race and run at a
very hot pace. Tactically
Aidan says he will leave it
up to Calvados to decide!
?The two Irish horses are
very good but I wouldn?t
change either for my fella.?
Whittington believes Bigmartre is a tasty price for

TEMPLEGATE?S TOP TIPS
LET the Music play in Southwell?s 4.20. MISTER
#
MUSIC (nap) has really hit form this year with two
smooth wins here over shorter. Tony Carroll?s nine-yearold still looks on a decent mark and should be at home
over this extra furlong.
COUSIN KHEE (3.20, Southwell, nb) can land the
hat-trick. Hughie Morrison?s stayer loves it here and
has hacked up on his last two starts. The drop in trip is
fine and if he?s in the same form as he was when hosing
up here on Sunday, he will be hard to beat.
MIMIC?S MEMORY (5.20, Southwell, treble) looks the
one in the finale. Ann Duffield?s filly was a course
and distance winner off a 3lb higher mark last May and
she?s very much respected back over this trip.

FRANCE v ENGLAND: 4 DAYS TO GO
Jones so spooked
ENGLAND boss Eddie Jones has been
having nightmares about his second
defeat in the job.
The Aussie admits the 25-13 loss to
Scotland ten days ago still spooks him
out in the middle of the night.
So he gets up and fires off emails to
his backroom staff as he bids to keep
their Six Nations defence on track.
As he prepares for the trip to France
on Saturday, Jones ? who has won 24
of his 26 matches in charge ? revealed:
?On Monday I woke up at 4am.
?I can?t sleep because it annoys me
losing a game we shouldn?t have lost.
?I go into the office and send texts
and emails to various staff members
saying, ?What do you think of this??
?Some of them reply straight away.
But I don?t really care when they reply.
?I find that?s the best time to think. I
By JONNY FORDHAM
don?t have anxiety, though. I have
thoughts about what we have got to fix
and how we are going to fix it.
?If I had any anxiety I would be
dead. You know when I die I have got
anxiety. I am being serious.
?I have coached for 20 years ? if I
was anxious for 20 years I would be
dead.?
Jones, 58, also joked that after being
physically and verbally abused by
Scotland fans on his way home from
Edinburgh, he is now on the lookout
for another dog ? so at least he will
always have two mates!
He added: ?I?ve got one dog now. The
one thing I?ve learned is I should get
two dogs. Because then I?ll always have
two friends. I?m looking for another.?

EDDIE JONES needs to shake
up his Red Rose robots to
replacement. Nathan Hughes has

After just a second defeat in 26
Tests, this Saturday is the perfect
chance to ditch some of his longstanding picks such as Mike Brown
and Dylan Hartley and trust in
style to up England?s try count.
England could manage only 12
points against Wales and 13 against
Scotland. So now is the time for
the Aussie to begin phase two of
his Twickenham tenure.
FRONT ROW
If Mako Vunipola, Jamie George
and Kyle Sinckler are good enough
for the Lions to take on the All
Blacks, then picking this terrorising
trio is a no-brainer.
Hartley is in only for his leadership ? and that was missing against
Scotland. There is no argument when
it comes to a straight shootout
between him and Sarries ace George.
And, like Hartley, Dan Cole has
become a passenger in this team.
Sinckler is dynamite and it should
be his chance to grow in the shirt.
SECOND ROW
A PROUD SPONSOR AT THE CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL
18+
STAY IN CONTROL. LEAVE BEFORE YOU LOSE IT. BEGAMBLEAWARE.ORG
We?re offering ?top price? on every runner in the Champion Hurdle market on 6th March 2018. Top price means the Sun Bets price will be equal to or better than the Bet365, Sky Bet,
William Hill, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and Coral prices as shown of oddschecker.com from 08.00 until 21.00 on 6th March 2018 for the Champion Hurdle on 13th March 2018 at
the Cheltenham Festival. Offer can be withdrawn at any time at Sun Bets discretion. 18+ begambleaware.org. Betting Rules and General Terms apply.
Joe Launchbury is the superhero of
this pack right now, so he is going
nowhere. That means it?s between
Maro Itoje and Courtney Lawes for
the final engine-room spot.
Itoje might be the boy wonder
but he hasn?t been the same since
coming
back
from
injury
in
December.
Lawes
has
been
consistently good, so unleash Super
Maro off the bench and let him
play his way back into form.
BACK ROW
Without Billy Vunipola England lose
their best carrier and gainline
breaker.
There
is
simply
no
Test match fitness. Sam Simmonds
has proved that you don?t need to
be 20 stone to hurt teams.
Chris Robshaw stays in his No 6
shirt as blindside, the position he
has excelled at under this set-up.
Time after time England talk
about not needing a specialist No 7,
which they do as Scotland proved.
Sam Underhill has the tools to be
the jackal at openside and has done
it for Exeter Chiefs.
HALF BACKS
Danny Care and Richard Wigglesworth are the only two scrumhalves in the squad but the choice
of fly-half could dictate who starts.
Put Owen Farrell into his favoured
No 10 shirt and give him the armband. Start with his Sarries pal
Wigglesworth ? the general who he
has won the last two European Cups
alongside. Then, Care can come on
and pick holes in a tiring defence.
CENTRES
Elliot Daly?s return is a huge boost.
The Wasps and Lions man says he is
ready to rumble and a run out
against France would be perfect to
get him ready to face Ireland.
By picking Daly at outside centre
you can turn to flat-track bully Ben
Te?o inside him.
BACK THREE
Anthony Watson at full-back for
Brown offers the attacking danger
that England?s rivals would fear.
Combine the Bath flier with
Exeter workhorse Jack Nowell and
Leicester rocket Jonny May and you
have fireworks in the back field.

MICKELSON . . . boost
Phil Mex
it worth
the wait
By DAVID FACEY
PHIL
MICKELSON
has
Georgia on his mind after
finally ending his 4-year
victory drought.
The American saw off
Justin Thomas in a playoff to land a thrilling WGC
Mexico Championship.
It was Lefty?s first win
since his Open triumph at
Muirfield in 2013. And he
cannot wait to get to
Augusta next month as he
eyes a fourth Masters title.
Mickelson, at 47 the
oldest winner of a WGC
event, said: ?I don?t think
that this is the apex or
the peak, I think I?m going
to continue to get better
each week.
?The last 4 years have
been extremely frustrating
but I?m starting to play
my best golf.
?I needed to get a win
before Augusta so I wasn?t
trying to win for the first
time in nearly five years
at that event.
?I knew that Muirfield
wasn?t going to be my last
one ? and this isn?t
either.?
Lew: Max
in the mix
By BEN HUNT
LEWIS HAMILTON believes
Max Verstappen will be the
main threat to his Formula
One title this season.
The British world champ
has even tipped Red Bull?s
flying Dutchman, 20, to
follow in his footsteps.
But Hamilton is not ready
to surrender his crown.
The 33-year-old returns
to the cockpit of his
Mercedes this week in Barcelona for winter testing.
And he said: ?Max has
the potential to be a world
champion. I am going to
be doing what I can to
stop him winning.
?I look forward to battling with him this year.?

WIGGINS HITS BACK IN
I?M NO
CHEAT!
It is the word Sir
Bradley Wiggins used
over and over again to
describe the allegations
against him.
Britain?s most decorated
Olympian and the nation?s
first Tour de France winner
came
out
swinging
in
response to the damning
DCMS Committee report that
accused him and Team Sky
of crossing ?an ethical line?.
And in Wiggins? sights
were not just the MPs who
had accused him of using
his asthma as a cover to
take a powerful steroid to
boost his performance.
In an intense, emotional
BBC interview, the 37-yearold broke cover also to take
aim at Team Sky for its
?ludicrous? handling of the
Jiffygate ?shambles? and the
failure
to
keep
proper
medical records that might
have cleared him.
The bigger question the
whole nation is asking was
put to him: Did he categorically deny ever cheating?
Wiggins said: ?100 per

cent. Never throughout my
career, no. I worked and
had the passion for this
sport for 15-20 years.
?To do that to the sport?
It?s just absurd.
?These allegations, it?s the
worst thing to be accused of.
?We
are
not
dealing
within a legal system ? I
would have more rights if I
had murdered someone in
this process.?
The Department for Culture,
Media
and
Sport
report
did
not
accuse
Wiggins and Team Sky of
breaking anti-doping rules,
instead saying they crossed
the ethical line by using his
asthma as an excuse to
prescribe Triamcinolone to
help control his weight.
Wiggins added: ?I refute
that 100 per cent. This is
malicious, this is someone
trying to smear me.
?I don?t know what his
[the source?s] motivation is.

TROUBLE ?N STRIFE
. . . angry Warner
confronts De Kock
By DAN KING
BRITISH
tennis
chief
Martin Corrie is stepping
aside ?temporarily? after
a
new
sexual
abuse
scandal hit the sport.
Corrie is giving up his
duties as president of the
Lawn Tennis Association
while a probe takes place
into how a 2004 allegation
of sexual assault was handled by Hertfordshire LTA.
He was a member of the
county executive committee at the time.
Corrie said: ?This case
concerns a coach who
was
investigated
and
sanctioned by the LTA
disciplinary committee at
the time.?
MALICIOUS, malicious,
malicious.
Warner loses plot
DAVID WARNER was held back by
his Aussie team-mates during an
incredible row with South African
wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.
Batsman Warner reacted after De
Kock allegedly made disparaging
remarks about his wife Candice.
Trouble erupted as the sides came
off for tea on day four of the First
Test in Durban, that the Aussies yesterday went on to win by 118 runs.
CCTV showed Usman Khawaja
Higgins is
on a high
repeatedly restraining Warner on
the stairs up to the dressing rooms
with captain Steve Smith and
wicketkeeper
Tim
Paine
also
attempting to calm him down.
Proteas boss Mohammed Moosajee
suggested Warner got personal as
well. He said: ?If you?re giving something, you?ve got to be able to take it.?
But skipper Smith said: ?We were
certainly very chirpy on the field
but, as far as I?m aware, we didn?t
get personal towards Quinton.?
JOHN HIGGINS says snooker
is his ?drug? ? and craves
another Triple Crown high.
The
Scot
(left),
42,
clinched a record fifth
Welsh Open crown with
Sunday?s 9-7 win over Barry
Hawkins. And after his 30th
ranking
title,
he
said:
?Walking out for the final
session at 6-6 ? you can?t
beat it. It?s like a drug.
?I have not won a Triple
Crown ? worlds, Masters
or the UK ? for several
years now. That is my aim.?

of
Triamcinolone

Wiggins
added:
?That

He also remains furious
about the claim he received
an illegal injection of Triamcinolone after the Criterium

and that the drug had been
taken out to France in the

having battered the Portuguese
side 5-0 in the first leg.
With the exception of a twogame blip in January, Klopp?s
team have improved steadily
since October.
And
Henderson
was
outstanding in the 2-0 win
over Newcastle on Saturday.
Gerrard left Liverpool in
2015 but is back at the club as
an academy coach.
Klopp said: ?Jordan knows
what I think about him and
what Gareth Southgate thinks
about him.
?Can he improve? For sure.
He had the most difficult job.
?He had to replace Steve
Gerrard, which is not a nice
job to do.
?Hopefully
people
don?t
think about that too much any
more and see him as a single
person, a fantastic player.
?I always thought he did
really well with it.
?When he is fit, he is a
really, really strong player.
That is why he is playing for
us, why he is our skipper.
?In our last match, he had
an outstandingly-good game. He
he
switched sides and his passing
range was brilliant. He did the
things in the right moments,
was very aggressive and was
very good at defending.
?Even when he was not
aggressive he was patient and
won challenges. I am happy.?
Considering the state of
Southgate?s England midfield,
it is vital Henderson keeps
playing each week.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will
reach the quarter-finals of the
Champions League for the
first time since 2009.
Klopp
has
an
eye
on
Saturday?s Manchester United
Premier League clash and
could give Adam Lallana his
first continental game since
the 2016 Europa League final.
The German added: ?We
will make one, two or three
changes. We respect Porto and
the competition too much to
think about real rotation.?
Midfielder James Milner was
cautious, though.
He said: ?We scored five and
there is no reason why they
cannot do that.
?But at this stage of the
tournament you have to believe
you can go on and win it.?

GLENN?S APOLOGY
I?M SORRY
By DAN KING
FA
chief
Martin
Glenn
apologised
for comparing the
Star of David to
the swastika and
Isis symbols.
APOLOGY . . . FA
chief Martin Glenn
The chief executive
made his ill-judged
comments when asked
about Manchester City
boss
Pep
Guardiola
wearing
a
political
symbol in support of
jailed Catalan independence campaigners.
Glenn moved quickly to
say there was no excuse
for causing offence to the
Jewish community.
And Simon Johnson, the
former
FA
and
Premier
League lawyer who is the
chief executive of the Jewish
Leadership Council, accepted
his explanation.
Glenn said: ?I would like to
apologise for any offence caused
by the examples I gave when
referring to political and religious symbols in football, specifically in reference to the Star of
David, which is a hugely important
symbol
to
Jewish
people all over the world.
?I will be speaking with the
Jewish Leadership Council and
to Kick It Out to apologise.?
Johnson later said in a statement: ?I spoke to Martin and
explained why his comments had
FA boss backtracks
after ?Nazi? blunder
caused such serious offence. Martin apologised, explained the context for his comments and stated
that he did not intend to cause
offence, which I accepted.
?I have thanked the FA for
their apology and I?m glad that
this has been dealt with swiftly.?
Karen Pollock, chief executive
of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said: ?I find
these comments astounding and highly offensive.
?It shows a huge lack of
understanding around the
difference
between
the
Star of David ? a religious
symbol ? and the swastika
used by the Nazis.?
Asked about the decision
to
charge
Guardiola,
Glenn said the City manager?s gesture had ?p***ed
off? a lot of Spaniards.
He added: ?Where do you draw
the line? Should we have someone with a Ukip badge, someone
with an Isis badge?
?We have re-written Law 4 of
the game so that things like a
poppy are OK. But things that
are going to be highly divisive ?
and that could be strong religious
symbols, it could be the Star of
David, it could be the hammer
and sickle, it could be a swastika
? these are things we don?t want.?
Guardiola yesterday accepted
the FA charge over his yellow
ribbon ? but has no plans
to say sorry.
However, the Spaniard
(left, with ribbon) says he
recognises the rules of the
country in which he now
works and will abide by
them.
Wearing
a
political
message pitchside is a
breach of kit and advertising regulations.
But the Etihad boss ?
who can now expect an
FA fine ? is free to wear it
before and after matches, as well
as during press conferences.
Uefa have no rules preventing
the ribbon being worn, so Guardiola is likely to display it during
the Champions League tie against
Basel at the Etihad tomorrow.

Pep Guardiola?s runaway leaders
are poised to have the Premier
League crown wrapped up earlier
than it has ever been won before.
It could even yet happen at the
Manchester derby on April 7, which
would leave City free to focus on
Europe for the rest of the season.
But German midfielder Gundogan
will be urging his team-mates to
keep their intensity high ? as they
will still have targets to hit.
They know 18 points from their
last nine matches would break
Chelsea?s record tally of 95.
Gundogan said: ?In my experience
it?s not always good, to lose one,
two, even five per cent of having
that pressure, game by game.
?I don?t know if it would be good
?If you are able to win
the league early, you can
lose that seriousness for the
Champions League, maybe.?
Gundogan had a similar
experience when he helped
Borussia Dortmund win the
German title in 2011-12.
He said: ?With three or four
games left we were champions.
We also had the possibility of a
points record. We wanted that,
even though the season was over.?
City fans would love to seal the
title ahead of facing United, so
they have to give their rivals a
guard of honour before kick-off.
Gundogan said: ?It doesn?t matter to us. We?ve had an amazing
season, we want to continue.?

Liverpool?s brutal 5-0 win in the first leg.

Jurgen Klopp is expected to rotate his side

That means Danny Ings could play and the

Cup in January and are scoring at will too.
And you can back the Reds to win 3-0, 3-1

Real Madrid hold a 3-1 lead over Paris SaintGermain from the first leg and the Ligue 1
moneybags face an uphill task to keep their
hopes alive of a first Champions League crown.
PSG?s challenge became even tougher when
Neymar was ruled out for the rest of the
season two weeks ago, while Kylian Mbappe is
also a doubt at the Parc des Princes.
Angel di Maria should continue to deputise
for Neymar and the Argentine is in electric

MAT?S
Nemanja screamer
By DAVE
KIDD
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
IT wasn?t quite Eric
Cantona doing his Jackie
Chan impersonation at
this same South London
Colosseum back in 1995.
But when Jose Mourinho
kicked a water bottle into
Selhurst Park?s Main Stand,
Manchester United?s frustrations were reaching boiling
point again.
After a dreadful first half, then
a second Crystal Palace goal
described as ?childish? by Mourinho, the United boss had seen
his team haul their way back to
2-2 only for David De Gea to be
forced into an outstanding save.
Then, the Portuguese whacked
the bottle into the home supporters. Nobody was injured and
Mourinho got away with it.
In injury time, Nemanja Matic
hammered home a spectacular
pot-shot and Mourinho got away
with it again.
If you wanted to be positive
about this United team you could
point
to
the
never-say-die
attitude, the thrilling comeback
and the winner in Fergie time.
To have such an attitude, you
would have had to ignore quite
how awful they were for the
opening 54 minutes against an
injury-riddled
and
relegationhaunted Palace side.
Mourinho admitted he delivered
a paint-stripping half-time teamtalk,
only
for
Patrick
van
Aanholt to be waved through to
put Palace two-up.
Thanks
to
some
equally
kindergarten defending from Palace, Chris Smalling and Romelu
Lukaku levelled it up and United
avoided
a
third
successive
Premier League away defeat.
Yet with Manchester City home
and hosed as champions and a
swashbuckling Liverpool due to
roll up at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime, few United fans
will be brimming with optimism.
Because for long periods, this
was a night when star turns such
as
Paul
Pogba
and
Alexis
Sanchez singularly failed to haul
Mourinho?s men out of mediocrity.
Gone are the days when a
night watching United came with
a guarantee of showbiz.
Selhurst Park was not just the
venue for the club?s great antihero to kung-fu kicker but also
where
United?s
matinee
idol
David
Beckham
announced
himself with a 50-yard Hollywood
goal against Wimbledon.
These days, though, watching
United is often as colourless as
the weird away shirts they were

And whereas teams have taken
to running up the white flag
when facing City, everyone in
this league seems to fancy their
chances against Mourinho?s team.
Even Palace, who were shorn of
nine first-teamers and are now
without a win in six matches.
There was no lack of belief as
Roy Hodgson?s men seized the
lead after just 11 minutes.
Luka Milivojevic sent out a raking pass for Christian Benteke,
who squared for Townsend to
shoot,
his

deflecting
horribly off Victor Lindelof.
After that, the first half shaped
up into a contest between Pogba,
United?s record buy, and Sanchez,
the League?s most lavishly-paid
player, as to who could give the
ball away more often.
Sanchez,

himself back at Barcelona, picked
out the red and blue of Palace on
a few occasions, but Pogba
took the honours by sending a
succession of passes into touch.
United?s substitutes did give
them extra impetus, however.
Marcus Rashford was a major
upgrade on Scott McTominay
during a half-time reshuffle.
Then Juan Mata and Luke
Shaw added extra energy, with
Jesse Lingard ending up at
right-back as Mourinho threw
the kitchen sink at it.
Yet all looked lost when Matic
fouled Benteke and an alert Jeff
Schlupp

beeps. There were a few
strong words relating to
their attitude and the
intensity of the game and
we needed a bit of luck to
win in the last minute.
?We started bad once
more, not pressing the
ball or the opponent and
giving them too much
space.
?So it was a fantastic
comeback to win the
game but we made mistakes, particularly the disgraceful
and
childish
second goal we conceded.
?It is a good goal to
show the kids in the academies all over the country
because it proves that
even top players can concede silly goals.?
Mourinho apologised to
a Palace fan behind his
dug-out when he booted a
water bottle which flew
into the crowd.
He admitted: ?It was
basic frustration but I had
a lot of good fun with the
people behind. Maybe they
like me here, because I
always praise the atmosphere at Selhurst Park.?
Yet Mourinho?s explanation might still not be
enough to save him from
an FA charge after he
served a one-match touchline ban for kicking a
water bottle in a game
against West Ham at Old
Trafford last season.
Matic?s first goal for
United deep into stoppage
time means United are
back up to second place
in the Premier League but
still 16 points behind leaders City.
Mourinho insisted: ?I
wasn?t surprised by Nemanja?s goal because he
scored an amazing one for
me at Goodison Park for
Chelsea and a winner in
the Champions League
against Sporting Lisbon.
?It was a phenomenal
goal to get us two extra
points but we still needed
a remarkable save from
David De Gea to keep
out Christian Benteke?s
header.?
Andros Townsend shot
Palace ahead early on.
Despite Mourinho?s halftime blast, United conceded a cheap second as
Jeffrey Schlupp took a
quick
free-kick
and
Patrick van Aanholt ran
through to net.
Chris Smalling?s header
and a Romelu Lukaku
strike made it 2-2.
Then Mourinho booted
the water bottle in frustration after Benteke was
allowed a free header,
which was brilliantly saved
by De Gea.
Matic?s strike sealed
victory and left Palace in
the relegation zone.

Roy
Hodgson said: ?I feel total

worldie from Matic is very
hard to take.?

PREMIER LEAGUE
By NEIL
ASHTON
CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER
THEY went into the game
without an idea.
No proper plans to deal with
Brighton?s
set-pieces,
no
specific tactical instructions, no
real insight from one of the
game?s greatest managers.
Arsene Wenger wanted Arsenal?s
players
to
work
it
out
for
themselves, to find solutions on the
field after three hugely damaging
defeats on the trot.
Fine if you have Sol Campbell,
Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry
wearing the club?s famous colours.
Not so clever when you are
relying on Shkodran Mustafi, Mesut
Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to
get you out of bother.
Wenger?s voice, full of authority
and conviction when the Gunners
were one of English football?s
leading clubs, is losing its impact.
Nobody is listening any more,
nobody is really taking any notice.
The only murmur of discontent
when Wenger named his side to
start at Brighton was from fullback Hector Bellerin.
The defender had trained for two
days at right-back in the build-up
to their trip to the seaside, but only
found out he was out of the team
when Wenger named the 11.
Calum Chambers, who played in
the previous Sunday?s 3-0 defeat by
Manchester City in the Carabao
Cup
final
at
Wembley,
was
suddenly pressed into action.
Bellerin, battered by Arsenal Fan
TV for wearing slippers around
London, believed he was being
made the scapegoat for their
dreadful run of form.
In the event, it did not matter
what team Wenger put out at the
Amex on Sunday lunchtime.
They were destined to lose anyway, beaten for the fourth game in
a row after goals from Lewis Dunk
and Glenn Murray
set Brighton on the
way to a 2-1 win.
When they came
in at the final whistle Wenger barely
said a word, leaving
the players to sit
and stare vacantly
at each other again.
Chris
Hughton?s
side had done some
extra
training
on
set-pieces ahead of
Arsenal?s visit, identifying some of the
vulnerabilities in this
shoddy defence.
Wenger used to
have all the answers,
passing on tips that
turned the likes of
Dennis
Bergkamp,
Bobby Pires, Vieira and Henry into
world beaters.
When Henry struggled for goals
in his first few months in English
football, Wenger pulled him to one
side and told him to spend more
time in the penalty area.
Those little touches, those chats
with
Wenger
on
the
training
ground, made all the difference.
More than two decades into the
job, Wenger is starting to doubt his
ability to rebuild this troubled club.
He does not review games,

seldom showing Arsenal?s players
where they went wrong, or telling
them what to work on to get back
into his team.
It is every man for himself now.
The team spirit has been eroded,
shredded after their morale-sapping
3-0 defeats by City in cup and
Premier League and the humiliation
at home to Swedish minnows
Ostersunds in the Europa League.
Arsenal, once a secretive, covert
operation, is a leaky bucket now.
Wenger, 68, is all alone. The
locals in Wenger?s neighbourhood of
Hadley Wood, the upscale North
London suburb that the Frenchman
calls home, worry about him.
He often dines on his own,
walking into some of the local restaurants
instead
of
spending
another night home alone.
Everybody at Arsenal ? directors,
players, supporters ? are turning
their backs on him.
He occasionally pops up to the
boardroom before matches, spending a few minutes talking to some
of the guests on the table reserved
in the manager?s name.
Relations with the directors in
London ? chief executive Ivan
Gazidis, Sir Chips Keswick and
Lord Harris of Peckham ? are not
so good.
Wenger?s
position
is
being
reviewed on a game-by-game basis,
with the names of various potential
replacements being bandied freely
around the club.
Unlikely as it is, the good work
of Sean Dyche has been praised as
Burnley close in on a top-ten finish
in the Premier League.
There are more and more names
being thrown into the pot.
Henry, even though he has indicated he would be prepared to take
it on, is not under consideration.
There
will
be
surprise
at
boardroom level about the dressingroom view on their former midfielder Mikel Arteta, too.
Arteta, 35, is not popular at the
Emirates. The Spaniard, now on

Every week there seems to be a
new low.
Every game brings a new barrage
of criticism.
Every week it is justified, too.
And every week the anger and
outbursts against Arsene Wenger
grow louder and more emotional.
It does look now as though Arsene
is in his final months as Arsenal
manager.
That?s not me saying he MUST go,
just that it looks more
and more likely.
And that?s where my
gauntlet is thrown down
to those who have got
the Gunners in this
mess.
If ? and it?s hard to
imagine
otherwise
?
this is Wenger?s last
season, then at least
send him away with his
respect and legacy intact.
If these players have
anything about them, if
they have any shred of
moral fibre, strength of
character and decency,
it?s an absolute must.
Yes, the players have
come in for stick ? and
rightly so ? but it is Wenger who
has borne the brunt.
His is the name on the banners, in
the chants and the radio phone-ins.
And, of course, there is a burden
of blame on his shoulders ? but not
to the point where the players aren?t
in the firing line with him.
He?s been guilty of having blind
faith in so many of them and been
rewarded with many embarrassing
surrenders.
The 6-0 loss at Chelsesa, a fourgoal thrashing at Southampton, 3-0
against a struggling Crystal Palace,
two 5-1 canings against Bayern
Munich . . . the list goes on. Wenger
has put his reputation on the line so
often for players who have let him
down. Now they have one final
chance to say: ?We owe you, and
we?ll do something about it.?
The Europa League is their one
chance of salvation, the only way
they can give something back to
Wenger ? and prove they have any
sort of grit and guts themselves.
Players have always been the ones
to make or break managers but this
lot couldn?t have caused more cracks
if you?d given them a sledgehammer.
The problem is they face an AC
Milan side which, while still a world
away from the glorious side of old,
is full of fight and
spirit
again
under
Gennaro Gattuso.
Do Arsenal have better players? Probably.
Do they have the
same appetite for a
scrap as any side managed by that dog of
war Gattuso? Not a
chance.
But I tell you what, if
I was in a side where
everyone was against
us, I know how I?d
react, just like I know
how
Tony
Adams,
Martin Keown and Co
would react.
We?d all have rolled
our sleeves up and said
?We?ll show you.? I?d love to think
this lot would do the same.
I?d love them to shut me up, prove
me wrong and make me admit:
?Better late than never, lads.?
That?s what great players do.
Sadly, though, far too often it has
been the opposite ? pitiful, spineless
defeats with barely a whimper.
This is the last chance to show a
bit of backbone.
I?m not saying it would save
Wenger but at least it would make
the last memory a winning one.
I?ve never been so desperate to eat
a slice of humble pie . . . but I don?t
think I?ll be needing that knife and
fork with this lot.
Go on,
prove
I am
wrong

Manchester City, is remembered for
being far too happy with himself.
Arsenal?s board is terrified of
making this appointment, fearful of
the process as they prepare to
replace the most successful manager in the club?s history.
They will have to come up with
a name soon, identifying the right
man to succeed Wenger as
manager of this great institution.
Someone will need to come up
with a bright idea.

But he was only told
he was dropped when
Wenger announced his

Wenger, 68, is desperate to rebuild team
morale but his players
are at war with each
other after four successive losses.
Arsenal have no hope
of finishing in the top
four of the Premier

FRANCE v ENGLAND: 4 DAYS TO GO
Jones so spooked
ENGLAND boss Eddie Jones has been
having nightmares about his second
defeat in the job.
The Aussie admits the 25-13 loss to
Scotland ten days ago still spooks him
out in the middle of the night.
So he gets up and fires off emails to
his backroom staff as he bids to keep
their Six Nations defence on track.
As he prepares for the trip to France
on Saturday, Jones ? who has won 24
of his 26 matches in charge ? revealed:
?On Monday I woke up at 4am.
?I can?t sleep because it annoys me
losing a game we shouldn?t have lost.
?I go into the office and send texts
and emails to various staff members
saying, ?What do you think of this??
?Some of them reply straight away.
But I don?t really care when they reply.
?I find that?s the best time to think. I
By JONNY FORDHAM
don?t have anxiety, though. I have
thoughts about what we have got to fix
and how we are going to fix it.
?If I had any anxiety I would be
dead. You know when I die I have got
anxiety. I am being serious.
?I have coached for 20 years ? if I
was anxious for 20 years I would be
dead.?
Jones, 58, also joked that after being
physically and verbally abused by
Scotland fans on his way home from
Edinburgh, he is now on the lookout
for another dog ? so at least he will
always have two mates!
He added: ?I?ve got one dog now. The
one thing I?ve learned is I should get
two dogs. Because then I?ll always have
two friends. I?m looking for another.?

EDDIE JONES needs to shake

After just a second defeat in 26
Tests, this Saturday is the perfect
chance to ditch some of his longstanding picks such as Mike Brown
and Dylan Hartley and trust in
style to up England?s try count.
England could manage only 12
points against Wales and 13 against
Scotland. So now is the time for
the Aussie to begin phase two of
his Twickenham tenure.
FRONT ROW
If Mako Vunipola, Jamie George
and Kyle Sinckler are good enough
for the Lions to take on the All
Blacks, then picking this terrorising
trio is a no-brainer.
Hartley is in only for his leadership ? and that was missing against
Scotland. There is no argument when
it comes to a straight shootout
between him and Sarries ace George.
And, like Hartley, Dan Cole has
become a passenger in this team.
Sinckler is dynamite and it should
be his chance to grow in the shirt.
SECOND ROW

18+
STAY IN CONTROL. LEAVE BEFORE YOU LOSE IT. BEGAMBLEAWARE.ORG
We?re offering ?top price? on every runner in the Champion Hurdle market on 6th March 2018. Top price means the Sun Bets price will be equal to or better than the Bet365, Sky Bet,
William Hill, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and Coral prices as shown of oddschecker.com from 08.00 until 21.00 on 6th March 2018 for the Champion Hurdle on 13th March 2018 at
the Cheltenham Festival. Offer can be withdrawn at any time at Sun Bets discretion. 18+ begambleaware.org. Betting Rules and General Terms apply.
Joe Launchbury is the superhero of
this pack right now, so he is going
nowhere. That means it?s between
Maro Itoje and Courtney Lawes for
the final engine-room spot.
Itoje might be the boy wonder
but he hasn?t been the same since
coming
back
from
injury
in
December.
Lawes
has
been
consistently good, so unleash Super
Maro off the bench and let him
play his way back into form.
BACK ROW
Without Billy Vunipola England lose
their best carrier and gainline
breaker.
There
is
simply
no
Test match fitness. Sam Simmonds
has proved that you don?t need to
be 20 stone to hurt teams.
Chris Robshaw stays in his No 6
shirt as blindside, the position he
has excelled at under this set-up.
Time after time England talk
about not needing a specialist No 7,
which they do as Scotland proved.
Sam Underhill has the tools to be
the jackal at openside and has done
it for Exeter Chiefs.
HALF BACKS
Danny Care and Richard Wigglesworth are the only two scrumhalves in the squad but the choice
of fly-half could dictate who starts.
Put Owen Farrell into his favoured
No 10 shirt and give him the armband. Start with his Sarries pal
Wigglesworth ? the general who he
has won the last two European Cups
alongside. Then, Care can come on
and pick holes in a tiring defence.
CENTRES
Elliot Daly?s return is a huge boost.
The Wasps and Lions man says he is
ready to rumble and a run out
against France would be perfect to
get him ready to face Ireland.
By picking Daly at outside centre
you can turn to flat-track bully Ben
Te?o inside him.
BACK THREE
Anthony Watson at full-back for
Brown offers the attacking danger
that England?s rivals would fear.
Combine the Bath flier with
Exeter workhorse Jack Nowell and
Leicester rocket Jonny May and you
have fireworks in the back field.

MICKELSON . . . boost
Phil Mex
it worth
the wait
By DAVID FACEY
PHIL
MICKELSON
has
Georgia on his mind after
finally ending his 4-year
victory drought.
The American saw off
Justin Thomas in a playoff to land a thrilling WGC
Mexico Championship.
It was Lefty?s first win
since his Open triumph at
Muirfield in 2013. And he
cannot wait to get to
Augusta next month as he
eyes a fourth Masters title.
Mickelson, at 47 the
oldest winner of a WGC
event, said: ?I don?t think
that this is the apex or
the peak, I think I?m going
to continue to get better
each week.
?The last 4 years have
been extremely frustrating
but I?m starting to play
my best golf.
?I needed to get a win
before Augusta so I wasn?t
trying to win for the first
time in nearly five years
at that event.
?I knew that Muirfield
wasn?t going to be my last
one ? and this isn?t
either.?
Lew: Max
in the mix
By BEN HUNT
LEWIS HAMILTON believes
Max Verstappen will be the
main threat to his Formula
One title this season.
The British world champ
has even tipped Red Bull?s
flying Dutchman, 20, to
follow in his footsteps.
But Hamilton is not ready
to surrender his crown.
The 33-year-old returns
to the cockpit of his
Mercedes this week in Barcelona for winter testing.
And he said: ?Max has
the potential to be a world
champion. I am going to
be doing what I can to
stop him winning.
?I look forward to battling with him this year.?

WIGGINS HITS BACK IN
I?M NO
CHEAT!
It is the word Sir
Bradley Wiggins used
over and over again to
describe the allegations
against him.
Britain?s most decorated
Olympian and the nation?s
first Tour de France winner
came
out
swinging
in
response to the damning
DCMS Committee report that
accused him and Team Sky
of crossing ?an ethical line?.
And in Wiggins? sights
were not just the MPs who
had accused him of using
his asthma as a cover to
take a powerful steroid to
boost his performance.
In an intense, emotional
BBC interview, the 37-yearold broke cover also to take
aim at Team Sky for its
?ludicrous? handling of the
Jiffygate ?shambles? and the
failure
to
keep
proper
medical records that might
have cleared him.
The bigger question the
whole nation is asking was
put to him: Did he categorically deny ever cheating?
Wiggins said: ?100 per

cent. Never throughout my
career, no. I worked and
had the passion for this
sport for 15-20 years.
?To do that to the sport?
It?s just absurd.
?These allegations, it?s the
worst thing to be accused of.
?We
are
not
dealing
within a legal system ? I
would have more rights if I
had murdered someone in
this process.?
The Department for Culture,
Media
and
Sport
report
did
not
accuse
Wiggins and Team Sky of
breaking anti-doping rules,
instead saying they crossed
the ethical line by using his
asthma as an excuse to
prescribe Triamcinolone to
help control his weight.
Wiggins added: ?I refute
that 100 per cent. This is
malicious, this is someone
trying to smear me.
?I don?t know what his
[the source?s] motivation is.

TROUBLE ?N STRIFE
. . . angry Warner
confronts De Kock
By DAN KING
BRITISH
tennis
chief
Martin Corrie is stepping
aside ?temporarily? after
a
new
sexual
abuse
scandal hit the sport.
Corrie is giving up his
duties as president of the
Lawn Tennis Association
while a probe takes place
into how a 2004 allegation
of sexual assault was handled by Hertfordshire LTA.
He was a member of the
county executive committee at the time.
Corrie said: ?This case
concerns a coach who
was
investigated
and
sanctioned by the LTA
disciplinary committee at
the time.?
MALICIOUS, malicious,
malicious.
Warner loses plot
DAVID WARNER was held back by
his Aussie team-mates during an
incredible row with South African
wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.
Batsman Warner reacted after De
Kock allegedly made disparaging
remarks about his wife Candice.
Trouble erupted as the sides came
off for tea on day four of the First
Test in Durban, that the Aussies yesterday went on to win by 118 runs.
CCTV showed Usman Khawaja
Higgins is
on a high
repeatedly restraining Warner on
the stairs up to the dressing rooms
with captain Steve Smith and
wicketkeeper
Tim
Paine
also
attempting to calm him down.
Proteas boss Mohammed Moosajee
suggested Warner got personal as
well. He said: ?If you?re giving something, you?ve got to be able to take it.?
But skipper Smith said: ?We were
certainly very chirpy on the field
but, as far as I?m aware, we didn?t
get personal towards Quinton.?
JOHN HIGGINS says snooker
is his ?drug? ? and craves
another Triple Crown high.
The
Scot
(left),
42,
clinched a record fifth
Welsh Open crown with
Sunday?s 9-7 win over Barry
Hawkins. And after his 30th
ranking
title,
he
said:
?Walking out for the final
session at 6-6 ? you can?t
beat it. It?s like a drug.
?I have not won a Triple
Crown ? worlds, Masters
or the UK ? for several
years now. That is my aim.?
