Labour ‘would scrap’ chunk
of immigration control laws
A LABOUR government would
scrap “a fair amount” of
current immigration control
legislation, shadow chancellor
John McDonnell said
yesterday.
He spoke amid the row over
how the “Windrush generation”
of legal Commonwealth
immigrants were caught by
provisions to create a “hostile
environment” for illegal
arrivals.
Mr McDonnell voted against
Tory legislation in 2014 and
2016 to make it harder for
illegal immigrants to settle and
work in the UK.
Asked on ITV’s Peston On
Sunday if a Labour
government would repeal
those laws Mr McDonnell said:

Rudd to quit. However, Ms
Thornberry told BBC One’s
Andrew Marr Show that she
“did not have a problem” with
checks being made to prove
that people seeking homes,
jobs and healthcare were legal
immigrants.
Jeremy Corbyn told the
Welsh Labour conference the
Windrush scandal exposed
“something rotten at the heart
of government”.
The Labour leader said his
government would have “no
bogus immigration targets, no
discrimination between people
of different races and religions,
and no racist scapegoating of
migrant communities
emanating from government
departments”.
Don’t cheat Brexit
voters by staying
in customs union
LEADING Tories warned
Theresa May yesterday not to
“betray” Brexit voters or put
Britain’s future prosperity at
risk amid fears she will bow to
pressure to stay in a customs
union with the EU.
Current and former ministers made clear Britain must
not surrender its post-Brexit
freedom to run its own trade
policy after 40 years of Brussels being in charge.
Fresh fears were sparked
after claims the Prime Minister’s team would “not be crying into their beer” if Parliament made her back down on
leaving the customs union.
The House of Lords last
week voted to require ministers to explain how they are
exploring the option of staying in a customs union.
On Thursday rebel Tories
plan to defy the Government
by urging ministers in a
symbolic, non-binding, vote
to make establishing “an
effective customs union” an
aim in Brexit talks.
Tory former cabinet minister Priti Patel said: “Staying
in the customs union would
not only be a betrayal of the
referendum result, but would
hold our country back and
undermine the economic and
political freedoms we will
secure on March 29, 2019.”
The Brexit-backing former
aid secretary denounced the
customs union as a “protectionist bloc” which slapped
swingeing tariffs on nonEuropean imports.
“It serves to inhibit and
restrict free trade, it keeps
prices high for the poorest
consumers in the UK and it
damages and oppresses markets in poorer and developing
countries. Remaining in the
customs union would be eco-

new advantages, if we were to
stay in the customs union.”
A Downing Street source
insisted:
“Policy
hasn’t
changed. We are leaving the
customs union.”
Justice Secretary David
Gauke said ministers had to
persuade Parliament to back
the Government’s policy of
leaving the customs union
and avoiding unnecessary
barriers to trade with the EU.
But Labour shadow foreign
secretary Emily Thornberry
said: “There is no other place
that we can go than to remain
in a customs union with the
EU. Nothing else makes
sense.”

nomically misguided and
morally reprehensible.
“For our country to succeed, we need a trade policy
made in Britain, not Brussels,
which means getting out of
the customs union.”
Chief Secretary to the
Treasury Liz Truss, who voted
Remain but has since changed
her mind, said voters made
clear in the referendum they
wanted Britain to make its
own trade deals.
She told BBC Radio 5 Live’s
Pienaar’s Politics: “One of the
big up-sides of leaving the EU
is the ability to strike trade
deals. I worry we’d end up

we’ve got in terms of trade

Repeal...Mr McDonnell
POLICE should no
longer automatically
assume an alleged
victim of crime is telling
the truth, an official
review suggests.
Instead detectives will
be told to ensure people
reporting crime are
listened to and the
report taken seriously.
The default position of
believing complainants
has come under fire
after high-profile cases
– including the doomed
Westminster sex
scandal, launched after
a single accuser, known
as “Nick”, told police he
had been raped and
abused for nine years
by a VIP gang.
The Metropolitan
Police raided the homes
of prominent figures
before the £2.5million
investigation collapsed
without any arrests.
In a review into the
terminology of “victim/
complainant” and
believing victims at the
time of reporting, the
College of Policing –
which sets standards for
police forces – makes
recommendations to the
Government in an effort
to avoid a repeat of
previous failings.
Angela Rafferty QC,
chairwoman of the
Criminal Bar
Association, said:
“Recalibrating the
approach of the police
from automatically
believing to listening
and taking seriously will
better ensure they
investigate and pursue
all relevant enquiries.
This means cases won’t
fail at the last moment
because obvious lines
of enquiry haven’t been
followed up.”

HUNDREDS of runners collapsed
or needed medical treatment during
the hottest London marathon in
history yesterday, as race chiefs
admitted they ran out of water at
key points along the course.
Many exhausted competitors in
the 26.2-mile race were stretchered
across the finish line after their legs
buckled in the 75F (24C) heat.
One ambulance worker said: “It’s
been far busier than previous years.
People were collapsing and passing
out in the brutal heat but we managed to revive them and many went
back out running again.”
Some runners “gasping” for water
were reported to have dashed into
pubs for a cold drink when stands
ran out of water. One spectator said:
“Others were going into shops to
buy drinks.”
Event director Hugh Brasher
confirmed stations at the eight, nine
and 10 mile marks ran out of water.
He said lorries with supplies topped
up water stations on the route.
He added: “We knew it was going
to be a hot day and we believe we
provided more water per person
than any other mass participation
marathon has done in the world.”
In Deptford, firefighters used their
hoses to provided passing runners
with a cold shower.
Race organisers had urged runners to reconsider aiming for personal best times and wearing fancy
dress in the heat. More than 40,000
took part in the race started by the

shocking revelations come on the
25th anniversary of the murder of
Stephen Lawrence in a London
street by a gang of knife-wielding
racist thugs.
Time after time, knives were
handed over to our under-age
volunteers with no questions asked
and could not have been easier to
obtain.
On at least two occasions staff
were spotted cancelling electronic
alerts to prevent illegal sales which
flashed up on the till when a knife
was scanned.
The haul included a stainless steel
blade with a serrated edge and a
chef’s knife, both eight inches long,
which were sold to a 14-year-old
schoolboy in separate shops with no
proof of age required.
All we needed was a handful of
change to get our hands on a
“Perfect Slice” carving knife set from
a Poundland store in Birmingham.
The purchase was made just days
after the retailer announced it is
banning the sale of kitchen knives
in its stores in response to an
unprecedented epidemic of stabbings in Britain which has left 97
people dead this year.
During our undercover investigation we were sold knives at eight out
of 30 stores in and around Leeds,
Birmingham and Bristol.
Shopkeepers who break the law
by selling knives to under-18s face
up to six months in prison and
unlimited fines.
?fiifi
Teenager Tom Frankland, 17, told
of his horror after he was sold
a six-inch chef’s knife with a forged
Japanese steel blade at an M&S
store.
We were also able to buy knives at
branches of Asda, TK Maxx, Lidl,
The Range and Wilko.
Our findings horrified campaigners battling to stamp out knife
culture on our streets.
Patrick Green, of the Ben Kinsella
Trust, said: “This reckless selling of
knives to under-18s is inexcusable.
“It is time that we applied the
same two strikes rule to retailers as
we do to those who carry knives.
“If retailers continually fail to
observe the law then they should be
subject to the full force of the law
and custodial sentences should be
applied, not simply a slap-on-thewrist fine.
“The majority of retailers take
great care to ensure that they verify
the purchaser’s age and their
diligence is undermined by slack,
careless and rogue traders.
“Restricting the sale of knives to
over18s sends an important message to young people that buying or
carrying a knife is not a normal thing
to do.”
Danny O’Brien, founder of pressure group Anti Knife UK, said:
“This is an issue that needs to be
highlighted and I find it disgusting
that your investigation has found
that so many knives are being sold
to teenagers by major retailers.”
The alarming findings come
despite a crackdown just weeks ago.
In February, every police force in
England and Wales carried out a

Time to get tough on
shops caught selling
knives to children
as stabbing rates soar
THERE have been 98 fatal stabbings in the UK
this year. That’s 98 people killed in 111 days.
We have been campaigning over the sale of
knives to under-18s in stores.
Action has been taken to restrict sales, but
not enough. It is just too easy to get a knife on
the High Street.
Kids know the stores where they can pick
up a knife or steal one. I’ve never heard of a
shopkeeper going to prison yet for selling
knives to a person under the age of 18.
But if a knife sold to someone under-age is
then used in a murder, the shop should be
prosecuted under joint enterprise.
In the 10 years I’ve been campaigning, all
we’ve really had from the courts and the
Government is lip service.
We are making some progress. Poundland
has announced it will no longer sell knives in
week-long operation targeting knife
crime hotspots.
Operation Sceptre was launched
after the latest figures showed
crimes involving knives and bladed
weapons were up 21 per cent compared with the previous 12 months.
It included undercover swoops on
hundreds of retailers to test whether
they were selling knives to young
people. The findings are yet to be
revealed but police said two previous test purchasing operations
showed around 20 per cent of retailers are selling knives to under-18s.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner
Duncan Ball, of the National Police
Chiefs’ Council, said there were “still

its stores. There are a number of ways that
you can prevent knives falling into the wrong
hands.
Retailers should be looking at the parts of
the shop where they sell knives. Often knives
are kept at the back of the shop, where there is
not even a camera. There is a particular
problem with corner shops.
I would like to see knives put behind the
counter, as with cigarettes and drink. Some
stores have started selling their knives in
too many” retailers failing to take
action. “I want to see retailers recognise their responsibility to help
keep communities safe,” he said.
“There are many complex drivers
of knife crime and we need a broad
approach involving public health
and education to stop it at source,
but halting the sale of knives to
children is an action we can take
now that will reduce the numbers of
knives on the streets.”
Home Office Minister Victoria
Atkins said: “This Government is
determined to tackle the scourge of
knife crime.
“Selling knives to under-18s is
already a criminal offence which
Grieving mother pleads
for tougher sentencing
Son JJ was stabbed in the street
MICHELLE McPhillips’ life was
shattered when her son Jonathan
was stabbed to death in Islington,
north London, in February last year.
She says tougher sentences
would help stop young people
arming themselves with knives.
Pub landlady Michelle was
working behind the bar when she
received a call saying her son, a
28-year-old father of two known as
JJ, had been attacked in the street.
She said: “When I got there they
were putting him on a stretcher.
There was no blood but he was
struggling for breath. In the
locked cabinets, while others use plastic tags
so you can’t take them off the shelf without
having to ask a member of staff.
That way you are double-checking their
ages.
A lot of shopkeepers are scared to ask for
ID, especially in areas where there is a high
level of knife crime.
There are other ways to get hold of
weapons. How many people can tell you how
many knives they have in their own homes?
If one went missing, would they know?
Parents are trying to be their kids’ best
friends rather than being a parent and
checking their bags.
Many things can be done, but if a child goes
into a shop to ask for a knife that should
instantly send alarm bells ringing. This is one
avenue that needs to be closed down.

months in prison and we have agreed

retailers to prevent the under-age

“We have also recently consulted
on proposals to strengthen the law
to make it harder for children to buy
knives online.”

A SCHOOLBOY of just 14 bought
kitchen knives from two of Britain’s
most popular stores with no proof of
age required.
A branch of homeware and garden
store The Range in Bradley Stoke, near
Bristol, sold a serrated stainless steel
bread knife eight inches long to
fresh-faced teenager Will Shields –
despite a sticker on the product’s
packaging in bold letters saying “NO
ID NO SALE!”
The £3.79 knife was purchased along
with a vegetable peeler and a chopping
board. Will said the woman at the
checkout may have been distracted
because she was talking to a colleague
while making the sale.
In a branch of supermarket giant
Lidl in the same town the youngster
was sold an eight-inch Ernesto chef’s
knife with no indication on the
packaging or in store that ID was
required. Will said he paid £1.99 for the
knife and the man at the till told him
as he was leaving: “Have a nice day.”
9p;Xm`[G`c[`kZ_
Lidl said it was “incredibly
disappointed” that robust procedures
had not been followed.
A spokeswoman said: “As a
responsible retailer we are highly
conscious of our legal and moral
obligations regarding the sale of all
age-restricted products.
“As such, we have strict procedures
in place relating to the sale of knives,
and adhere to a voluntary agreement
with the Home Office in relation to the
sale of knives within our stores.
“As part of our procedures, we have
adopted the principles of applying the
‘Think 25’ policy to the sale of all
knives, incorporating prominent
signage regarding the age restrictions
in place, secure packaging, as well as
extensive training for all employees on
the sale of knives.
“This is provided when an employee
first joins the company, with further
refresher training provided at least
every six months. Additionally, we
operate a test purchase programme,
through a third party provider, to
ensure that our policies are being fully
and correctly implemented, and have
found that our stores are extremely
diligent in applying our policies. We are
therefore incredibly disappointed that
this was not the case on this occasion.
“The correct sale of knives is a hugely
important topic for us and the entire
retail industry, which is why we are
conducting a full internal investigation
and will be carrying out appropriate,
corrective action to avoid any
recurrence.”
No response was received from The
Range. At B&M and HomeSense
stores, Will was asked for ID and was
not served when he was unable to
provide it. He said that at both stores
staff told him he needed to be over 25
to make the purchase.
Argos, Asda, Morrisons,
Poundstretcher, Sainsburys and TK
Maxx all refused to sell knives to him.
STUDENT Kristiana Hall found it easy to buy
knives from Poundland – just days after the
firm announced it was banning sales to help
keep the public safe.
Kristiana, 17, picked up a Perfect Slice
carving knife set from the chain’s branch in
Perry Barr, Birmingham.
Kristiana, of Kingshurst, West Midlands,
was also sold a pair of Snip Snip Snip
kitchen scissors.
On the back of both packs were warnings
which stated: “Poundland operates
a proof of age policy called Challenge 25.
If you look under the age of 25 you may
be asked to prove that you meet the legal
age limit.”
Kristiana said: “I found the knives and
scissors in the kitchen section and picked
up a number of other items including place
mats. I went up to the till and was served
by a woman in her late 30s. She didn’t
speak to me and just swiped the items
through.
“I noticed a warning appear on the till
screen asking to check if I was 18. She
clicked it off the screen and didn’t bat an
eyelid. I couldn’t believe she didn’t even ask
me one question about it.”
Poundland said: “We will obviously
investigate precisely what happened in
Perry Bar but we understand the importance
of this issue. That’s why we recently
announced we would stop selling kitchen
knives completely. We have already taken
them off sale in London and will do so in the
rest of the country by the end of
the year.”

MARKS & Spencer was among
four shops which sold knives to
a teenager in the crime-ravaged
city of Leeds.
Police revealed just weeks ago
that a shocking 227 crimes
involving knives had been
reported in West Yorkshire
schools over the past two years.
But that did not stop Tom
Frankland, 17, from purchasing
a haul of weapons.
At a branch of M&S in Pudsey
he paid £12.50 for a six-inch
chef’s knife with a forged
Japanese steel blade. The
9p;Xm`[G`c[`kZ_
Xe[<ddX:iXdgkfe
cashier said to him: “How much
over 18 are you? I’m going to get
in trouble for this, aren’t I?”
An M&S spokeswoman said:
“We take a strict approach to the
sale of knives, which requires
customers to provide proof of
age before purchase.
“We take this seriously and
are investigating why, on this
occasion, this was not followed.”
Tom went on to buy a ceramic
chef’s knife with a six-inch blade
from Asda. He was not asked for
ID, the cashier simply saying:
“Are you old enough to buy that?”
Asda said: “We take our
responsibility as a retailer very
seriously and have begun an
investigation.”
Tom bought a five-inch utility
knife with a brushed stainless
steal blade for £3.99 at TK Maxx.
The firm apologised for the
mistake and pledged to remind
staff of its policy on knives.
In Poundworld Tom bought a
Stanley knife. The chain said it
was investigating.

SOHAM murderer Ian Huntley
was condemned last night for his
“unbelievably insensitive” remarks
describing the deaths of Holly
Wells and Jessica Chapman as the
worst day of his life.
Huntley, 44, is behind bars after
being locked up for at least 40
years for killing the two 10-yearold girls in August 2002.
He originally denied the murders and has never revealed the
full story of what happened. But in
a letter to his daughter Samantha
Bryan he told her it was “the most
horrendous day of my life”.
Rose Dixon, chief executive of
British charity SAMM (Support
After Murder and Manslaughter),
said: “This must be very hurtful to
the families of Holly and Jessica. It
was the worst day of the lives of
those two beautiful little girls and
it was the worst day of the lives
of their family and friends. I just
think it’s a very insensitive
comment to make.
“It’s the worst day of his life
because he’s in prison for it. It’s
just unbelievably insensitive. These
families are never going to forget
those little girls. Most of our
members say we are the ones
serving a life sentence. They will
never have their little ones back.
“Every Christmas, every birthday, there’s a chair that’s empty
that wouldn’t have been empty
because of the wickedness of one
ÊK_`j`ej\ej`k`m\
i\dXibdljkY\
m\ip_lik]lc]fi
k_\]Xd`c`\jË
person and that feeling doesn’t
ever go away.”
Samantha, from Cleethorpes in
Lincolnshire, began writing to her
father last autumn. She admits
she was devastated when she
discovered Huntley was her father
and says she thought that by
writing to him she could get
answers about why he killed Holly
and Jessica.
Instead, Huntley told Samantha
he didn’t “relish” the idea of
discussing what was “unimaginably the most horrendous day of
my life”.
He preferred to tell her how he
spends his days behind bars
managing a team of painters and
decorators at the maximum security Frankland prison in Durham.
She has now vowed never to
contact him again, despite his
pleas for her to visit him in jail.
“Not everyone will understand
why I contacted him,” said Samantha, 19. “But can you imagine what
it feels like to know one of Britain’s
most notorious killers is biologically your father?
“I hoped for remorse but instead
I got evasion. I could never forgive
him for what he did but I did think
he might do the right thing and
say what he did and how he feels
about his terrible crime.”
Samantha discovered the identity of her father four years ago

A JEWISH Labour
MP has revealed she
is receiving more
anti-Semitic abuse than
ever before.
Margaret Hodge
blamed social media for
driving the increase. She
admitted: “I’ve never
known it like this.”
The MP for Barking
said when the far-Right
British National Party
challenged her for her
London seat in 2010 she
got “a bit” of antiSemitic abuse.
But she added: “I’m
getting more now... and I
think the reason for that
is social media. It’s an
easy way to get it out.”
She also said she used
to feel the Labour Party
was her “natural home
as a refugee, an
immigrant, a Jew”
because of its anti-racist
and tolerant outlook.
However, she added:
“That has changed. In
part it’s a complex thing,
anti-Semitism is growing
in society.”
Actress Maureen
Lipman, who is Jewish,
said Labour leader
Jeremy Corbyn’s failure
to tackle anti-semitism
may see her vote Tory
for the first time.
Asked if she was
“becoming a Tory”, she
said: “I’m getting there.
I can’t be a Labour
supporter any more.”

Girlfriend Carr was freed in 2004

Her mother Katie has also been
a victim of Huntley, suffering
repeated beatings and rapes when
she was just 15.
“I’ve never done anything wrong
in my life but he’s cast a huge
shadow over it,” Samantha said.
“My mum warned me against contacting him and said he’d be too
much of a coward to give me a
straight answer. I thought perhaps
he would do something decent
now he’s had 15 years in prison to
think about what he’s done. But
she was right. I was naive.
“He said he wants me to meet
him one day but I’ll never, ever
agree to see him now.”
Holly and Jessica had been
pupils at the school where Huntley
worked as a caretaker before their
murder at his house in Soham,
Cambridgeshire.

was jailed for three-and-a-half
years for giving him a false alibi.
She was released in 2004 and given

FOUR Britons died and 12
others were injured in an
horrific coach crash in Saudi
Arabia.
A woman in her 60s from
Blackburn, Lancs, a man and a
mother and son from Preston,
were travelling from Mecca to
Medina on an Islamic “Umrah”
pilgrimage.
The coach carrying the four
Britons collided with a fuel
tanker which caught fire and
then set the bus alight
The Foreign Office says it is
aware British nationals have
been killed in an accident in
9p:_i`jI`Z_\j
Saudi Arabia. Travel firm
Hashim Travel said relatives of
those who have died have been
informed.
It is understood that a young
child is among the injured.
The coach was travelling
from Mecca when the collision
happened near the town of
Al Khalas.
The Umrah pilgrimage is
optional for Muslims and on a
smaller scale than the annual
Hajj pilgrimage, which
Muslims are obliged to
undertake. Hashim Travel,
based in Blackburn, specialises
in Umrah and Hajj and has
been providing travel packages
for the past 15 years.
Gulfaraz Zaman, the director
of the company, said there
were 18 people in total on
board. He said: “There was a
crash between the coach and a
petrol tanker.
“There were 18 people on the
coach which was travelling
back from Mecca towards
Medina.
“It took place on a main
road. Four people have passed
away, one from Blackburn and
three from Preston. The
woman from Blackburn was
aged in her 60s.”
Other passengers on the
hired bus were from
Accrington, Preston,
Birmingham, Wolverhampton,
Northampton and Blackburn.
A Foreign Office spokesman
said: “We are supporting the
British families of those
who have died and those
injured following a serious
road traffic accident near the
town of Al Khalas, Saudi
Arabia.”
A NAKED gunman
killed four people
yesterday in a rampage
at a restaurant in the
United States.
Police were last night
hunting Travis Reinking
after the shooting at the
Waffle House in Antioch,
near Nashville,
Tennessee.
The 29-year-old from
Illinois killed two people
in the car park before
entering the restaurant
and shooting at diners.
A total of six people
were shot – three died at
the scene and another
died later in hospital
after firing broke out at
3.30am local time.
In a statement the
police said: “A patron
wrestled away the
gunman’s rifle.
“He was nude and fled
on foot.”
The man is described
as white with short hair
and was said to be
wearing nothing but a
green jacket, which he
took off before running
away.
Officers say he was
armed with an AR-15
assault rifle – the same
type of gun that was
used by Nikolas Cruz

Florida school killing 17
people in February and
in the Las Vegas
shootings last year

PIPPA Middleton was in the
doghouse after being asked
to leave a supermarket after
going in with her two pet
dogs.
Just hours before the
happy news of her first
pregnancy was reportedly
revealed, the Duchess of
Cambridge’s younger sister,
34, was spotted being asked
to leave a branch of Tesco
Express in London.
Pippa, looking summery in
a sleeveless tan-coloured
outfit and sunglasses, was
out with a female friend on
Saturday.
But she was asked to leave
by a member of staff shortly
after walking in with her
cocker spaniel Rafa and her
husband’s black Labrador.
While she looked a little
put out, Pippa followed the
assistant’s instructions and
politely left.
The incident came as
friends reportedly told how
she was overjoyed after
falling pregnant with her first
child.
She and her husband, the
financier James Matthews,
broke the news that they are
expecting a baby after the
12-week scan, it emerged
yesterday.
Her sister Kate, who is
heavily
pregnant
herself
with her third child with
Prince William, was also
said to be delighted at the
news.
Pippa and her 42-year-old
husband have also told
friends they are “overjoyed”.
A friend said: “When Pippa
found out she was pregnant,
she was obviously thrilled.
“Naturally, big sister Kate
and parents, Carole and
Michael, were the first
people she told – James aside
– and they could not have
been more delighted.
“It’s been a tough few
weeks for the two families, so
Pippa all
smiles on
Saturday
after
friends
reportedly
revealed
that she is
expecting
her first
child
Pippa and her dogs after being told they must leave the store
this has provided some
much-needed happiness and
light relief.”
The news comes after a
difficult time for the Middleton clan following allegations
of rape against Pippa’s
father-in-law David Matthews.
He
strenuously
denies the claims and
branded them as “untrue
and scandalous”. He is
alleged to have carried out
two offences between 1998
and 1999, one in Paris and
another on the Caribbean
island of St Barts.
After hearing news of her
sister’s pregnancy, friends
said that the Duchess of
Cambridge, 36, “could not
have been more delighted”,
friends said.
Kate was reportedly the
first person to be told after
Mr Matthews.
A marriage just gets better after 20 years
COUPLES who stay together through
the ups and downs of early married life
can look forward to greater happiness
than they felt in the first flush of new
love, research claims.
If they can make it through the
pressures of raising and supporting a
family to their 20th anniversary and
beyond, people say they feel happier
and spend more time in shared activities than they did as newlyweds.
In fact, long-standing married couples can experience “even deeper levels
of appreciation, closeness and contentment”, according to an American study
of 2,034 married people.
Researchers Paul Amato and Spencer James, of Pennsylvania State and
Brigham Young Universities respectively, realised that other studies had
lumped together people headed for
divorce with those whose marriage
survived, without considering that

their “relationship trajectories” were
entirely different.
In their report, they said: “Although
divorce is common these days, about
half of all marriages last a lifetime and
the long-term outlook for most of these
marriages is upbeat, with happiness
and interaction remaining high, and
discord declining.”
The study represents 20 years of data
from a panel of 2,034 married people,
who began with an average age of 35 for
wives and 37 for husbands.
Sir Paul Coleridge, chairman of the
Marriage Foundation, said: “Research
shows over and over that everyone
wants a stable and satisfying monogamous lifelong relationship.”

BRITISH families are flocking
to Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia
once more despite a series of
terror attacks.
Bookings to Turkey are up
84 per cent year-on-year, while
demand for holidays to Egypt
has risen by 89 per cent,
according to Thomas Cook’s
annual Holiday Report.
This is despite the Government’s current foreign travel
advice which suggests that
terror attacks are “very likely”
in both countries.
It comes after an Islamic
State gunman killed 30
Britons at a beach resort in
Sousse, Tunisia, in 2015.
A year later three attackers
killed 45 people and injured
9p?XeeX>\`jjc\i
more than 230 others at Turkey’s busiest airport, Ataturk
International in Istanbul.
Direct flights from the UK
to Egypt’s Sharm El Sheikh
have been suspended since
November, 2015.
The ban was imposed by
Downing
Street
after
a
Russian charter jet exploded
over the Sinai desert, killing
224 people.
But British tourists are now
flocking back to the Mediterranean and north Africa,
taking advantage of cheap
hotels and improved security.
A Thomas Cook spokesman
said: “The nation’s appetite
Pictures: GETTY
for sunshine at a fair price
fuels our demand to revisit
these old favourites.”
This growth is largely driven
by families, who make up 61
per cent of bookings to Turkey
and 51 per cent to Egypt.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office currently advises
that “terrorists are still very
likely to carry out attacks in
Tunisia”.
However it does confirm
that “the Tunisian government has improved protective
security in major cities and
tourist resorts”.
Spain is seeing a reduction
in interest as rising costs
cause people to look east for
cheaper alternatives.

Readers are too
stubborn to give

BRITONS will plough on with a difficult
book for months rather than ditch it for
a different read, a survey has found.
Some are unwilling to give up, no
matter how much they are struggling,
while others may wait months before
conceding defeat.
The majority of people will avoid
reading material that will make them
sad, with a considerable proportion
saying they see reading as a form of
escape that transports them to a happy
place.
The Reading Agency, the charity which
commissioned the survey to mark World
Book Night today, said that anyone who
finds themselves facing “book block”
should not force themselves to carry on.
The poll also found that readers
are more likely to have difficulty with
modern-day novels such as Fifty Shades
Of Grey.
More than a fifth of the 2,000 people
polled said they thought it was right to
always finish a book you have started.
:fe]lj\[
The most common book to not finish
was Fifty Shades Of Grey by EL James,
followed by JRR Tolkien’s The Lord Of
The Rings; Harry Potter And The Order
Of The Phoenix by JK Rowling; Great
Expectations by Charles Dickens and
Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.
Sue Wilkinson, chief executive of The
Reading Agency, said: “At a time when
one in five of us will experience anxiety
or depression, and world events can
leave people feeling confused or scared,
reading has never been more important.
“As this research shows, reading
can have a hugely positive impact on
our health and wellbeing; it can build
empathy and help us understand the
world and the people around us.
“At a time when so many brilliant
books are being written and published,
you should never force yourself to read
something you're not enjoying,” she
added.
A book can become a chore at times

IF YOU make people sludge
through a book it puts them
off. I read Shakespeare aged
eight and hated him for years.
It was not until my teens that I
discovered the joy of his work.
A novel should grip from
the start. I get sent 10 to 25
a week and can tell by the end
of the first paragraph if I’m
going to enjoy it. I will read 40
pages – that’s my test.
I did make one mistake
– with The Girl With The
Dragon Tattoo. On the fourth
attempt I read it through and
actually enjoyed it. But I finish
about 200 novels a year, and
discard another 100 part-read.
There were 40,000 novels
published worldwide last year,
so be selective. I look for a
book that, when I put it down, I
think: “I wish I’d written that.”

CONSUMER champion Martin Lewis
is today issuing a High Court writ
against Facebook for defamation,
intending to give the social media giant
“a bloody nose”.
Mr Lewis, founder of the website
MoneySavingExpert.com, said he was
suing in a personal capacity and would
be seeking “exemplary damages”.
He said that he was taking action
because over the past year Facebook
had allegedly published over 50 fake
Martin Lewis adverts which have been
seen by millions of people in Britain.
Mr Lewis, 45, claims the adverts were
mainly scams, ripping off innocent
people and lowering his reputation.
He was launching the legal bid to
give Facebook a “bloody nose” and
make them accountable, adding:
“I’ve been fighting for over a year to
stop Facebook letting scammers
use my name and face to rip off
vulnerable people – yet it continues.
I feel sick each time I hear of another
victim being conned because of
trust they wrongly thought they
were placing in me.
“One lady had over £100,000 taken
from her.”
Mr Lewis said the scam ads using his
image were mainly for get-rich-quick
schemes currently titled “Bitcoin Code”
or “Cloud Trader”, which are fronts for
firms based outside the EU.
He added: “I don’t do adverts. I’ve
told Facebook that. Any ad with my
picture or name in is without my
permission.

AIR pollution near
schools is a major worry
for children, a survey
has found.
More than two out of
five of the children
polled are now
concerned about levels,
figures revealed.
A YouGov poll, carried
out for walking and
cycling charity Sustrans,
surveyed more than
1,000 children aged six
to 15 about their
attitudes towards air
pollution and the actions
they think should be
taken to help make the
air cleaner.
More than one in
three think encouraging
more people to cycle,
scoot or walk to school
is the best way to
reduce levels of air
pollution.

“I’ve asked it not to publish them, or
at least to check their legitimacy with
me before publishing. This shouldn’t
be difficult – after all, it’s a leader in
face and text recognition.
“Yet it simply continues to repeatedly publish these adverts and then
relies on me to report them, once the
damage has been done.”
And he claimed that when he had
alerted the social media giant to their
presence, it had failed to act.
Mr Lewis added: “Even when they
are reported, many have been left up
for days or weeks. And finally, when
they are taken down the scammers
just launch a new, nearly identical
campaign very soon afterwards and the
whole rigmarole starts again.
“It’s time Facebook was made to take
responsibility. It claims to be a platform not a publisher – yet this isn’t just
a post on a web forum, it is being paid
to publish, promulgate and promote
what are often fraudulent enterprises.
My hope is this lawsuit will force it to
change its system. Nothing else has
worked. People need protection.”
Mr Lewis, who is also the presenter
of ITV’s The Martin Lewis Money Show
and a champion of The Money &
Mental Health Policy Institute charity,
stressed the legal action was not being
done for personal gain. Any money paid
out to him will be donated to anti-scam

themselves.
Xavier Brice, Sustrans

“We’re in the midst of an
air quality crisis. This
survey demonstrates for
the first time that
children are aware and
concerned about poor
air quality.
“We wanted to hear
their views on the
matter, as they are some
of the most susceptible
to the adverse effects of
air pollution, which can
lead to poor lung and
brain development and
asthma if exposed for
long periods of time at a
young age.
“More needs to be
done to improve air
quality near schools and
help protect future
generations.”
Martin Lewis has said that he intends to give the social media giant ‘a bloody nose’ in court over ads featuring his name
charities. Legal experts said the action
could open the door for other claims.
Mark Lewis, of Seddons and the
lawyer leading the action, said: “Facebook is not above the law, it cannot
hide outside the UK and think it is
untouchable. It needs to be shown the
price of causing misery is very high.”
Last night a Facebook spokesman
said: “We do not allow adverts which
are misleading or false on Facebook
and have explained to Martin Lewis
that he should report any adverts that
infringe his rights and they will be
removed.
“We are in direct contact with his
team, offering to help, and only last
week confirmed that several adverts
and accounts that violated our Advertising Policies had been taken down.”

Mark Hatzer helped his mother Sylvia change her diet
A PENSIONER with dementia
has recovered after changing to
a Mediterranean-style diet, her
family say.
Sylvia Hatzer, 82, is now able
to recognise her son Mark again.
She had struggled to do so in
the past and was being kept in
hospital because she had such
severe memory loss.
Mark was determined not to
give up on his mother and
helped her change to a diet high
in healthy foods such as blueberries and walnuts.
He said: “Since my dad and
brother died we have always
been a very close little family
unit, just me and my mum, so
for her to not know who I was
was devastating.
“We were a double act that
went everywhere together. I
despaired and never felt so
alone as I had no other family to
turn to.
“Overnight we went from a
happy family to one in crisis.”
Dementia mum, 82, regains
memory with brain-boost diet
Sylvia, of Prestwich, Manchester, is now back to her old self
again after her change in diet.
Her
new
eating
regime
includes broccoli, kale and spinach, sunflower seeds, green tea,
oats, sweet potatoes and, as a
treat, dark chocolate with a high
cocoa content.
She is also being offered help
with mental exercises, including
jigsaws and crosswords.
Sylvia first started showing
signs of dementia three years
ago and was diagnosed in
December 2016.
She is now being held up by
charity the Alzheimer’s Society
as an example of how the disease can be arrested signifi-
cantly if not completely cured.
But Mark said the change in her
health was not instant.
“It wasn’t an overnight miracle but after a couple of months
she began remembering things
like birthdays and was becoming her old self again, more alert,
more engaged.
“People think that once you
get a diagnosis your life is at an
end. You will have good and bad
days but it doesn’t have to be
the end.
“For an 82-year-old she does
very well. She looks 10 years
younger and if you met her you
would not know she has gone
through all this. She had to have
help with all sorts of things, now
she is turning it round. We are
living to an older age in this
country but we are not necessarily living more healthily.”
The Alzheimer’s Society is
featuring Mark’s blog about
Sylvia’s condition on its website
and sharing their diet and exercise tips.
A 2017 study by US scientists
found that a Mediterraneanstyle diet gave participants a 30
to 35 per cent lower risk of
cognitive impairment.
The diet is high in fresh fruit,
vegetables and nuts, combined
with a moderate amount of oily
fish and dairy, but low in meat
and saturated fat, which can
help with memory problems.

Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon on stage at the last gig they played in 2010
=\l[`e^J`dfeXe[
>Xi]leb\cÊn\i\j\k
kfjkXY\XZ_fk_\iË
A BITTER rivalry between Paul
Simon and Art Garfunkel ran so deep
that their managers at one point
feared they could stab each other.
A new book has laid bare the
troubled relationship between the
Bridge Over Troubled Water singers
with each man “envying the other’s
place in the team”.
An authorised biography, Paul
Simon: The Life, details a particularly
bitter backstage clash in 1993 when
the duo had reunited for a lucrative
comeback tour.
Decades of pent-up resentment led
to fury after a reviewer claimed
Garfunkel was “just one of a large
supporting cast of Mr Simon’s
collaborators”.
Paul Simon’s manager Joseph
Rascoff had to stand between the
men’s two dressing rooms to ensure
violence did not break out during a
New York show.
He said: “I genuinely believed that
if there had been a knife on the table
one of them would have used it.
“They never came to blows but
there was shoving, and I had to step
between them.”
The book claims that resentment
grew on both sides of the partnership
back from their early days in the
1950s when they first performed as a
9pJXiX_N\jkZfkk
group called Tom & Jerry. Art
Garfunkel was said to be “crushed”
that he was not included in
recordings of new songs and felt in
danger of being “tossed aside”.
Meanwhile Paul Simon was
“sensitive” about his 5ft 3in height
and told how he remembered
comments from Art 60 years ago in
which he said: “I’ll always be taller
than you”.
The explosive book by Robert
Hilburn also details Paul Simon’s
depressive tendencies despite his
meteoric success.
Questioned over what he saw as
“bad news”, Simon said: “Being
short. Not having a voice that you
want. Not looking the way you want
to look. Having a bad relationship.”
Manager Mort Lewis said: “They
both envied the other’s place in the
team. Paul often thought the
audience saw Artie as the star
because he was the featured singer,
and some people probably thought
Artie even wrote the songs. But Artie
knew Paul wrote the songs and thus
controlled the future of the pair.”
The pair split in 1970 but later
teamed up in 1981, 1993 and last
played together in 2010.

ARLIER this month the Met Police
announced that the practice of
automatically believing sexual
assault complaints was over after
a string of cases where complainants
were shown to be fantasists and liars.
Chief among them was that of the
notorious “Nick” who was the main
accuser in the Westminster sex scandal
that never was.
Now the College of Policing has said
that officers should no longer
automatically assume that an alleged
victim of crime is telling the truth. The
new guidelines will state: “The intention
is that victims can be confident they
will be listened to and their crime taken
seriously.”
Seems reasonable. In any field where
evidence has to be weighed up and
assessed there must be room for
scepticism and a dispassionate attitude.
A gullible police force is no use.

ODAY we exclusively report that
leading high street retailers are
selling knives to children as young
as 14 even though the law says
that customers must be over 18. And
this is happening as Britain’s inner
cities face an epidemic of knife crime,
with 97 people dead this year, and
teenagers most at risk from each other.
As a result of an undercover operation
by this newspaper, children came out
of shops with potentially lethal knives
including huge chefs’ knives – one was
eight inches long. No proof of age was
required by many stores even though
shopkeepers who break the law can face
six months in prison and unlimited fines.
The alarming results of this
investigation come just weeks after the
police carried out a week-long exercise
– Operation Sceptre – targeting knife
crime hotspots. This was launched after
figures showed that crimes involving
knives were up 21 per cent compared
with the previous 12 months.
A crackdown on buying kitchen knives
and various kinds of blades will not
solve the problem entirely. There are
already plenty of knives in circulation.
But anything which makes it more
difficult to plan a crime is to be
welcomed and it is shameful that some
retailers do not take the issue seriously.
There doesn’t seem to be the same
reluctance to enforce the rules if a child
tries to buy alcohol.
Retailers must wise up to their
responsibilities and save lives.

K
HE greatness of Britain
in the Victorian age was
built partly on free
trade. It was the systematic removal of protectionist tariffs, in the
face of ferocious opposition
from the landed elite, that
served as the mighty catalyst
for 19th-century prosperity and
global enterprise.
Today Brexit could herald an
invigorating new era of free
trade for our country. Liberated
from the bureaucratic straitjacket of the European Union
we should be able to make our
own international agreements
and set our commercial taxes
to suit our national interests
rather than obey the ideological
whims of Brussels. This is what
is meant by “taking back
control”.
Yet the prospect of economic
freedom is now gravely threatened by a pincer movement
made up of the European Commission on one side and the
diehard Remain movement on
the other. With ruthless opportunism and instinctive contempt for British democracy
these two forces have jointly
latched on to the trade
question as a means of wrecking
Brexit.
To achieve this objective they
seek to compel Britain to
remain a member of the European customs union, with the
result that Brussels would still
set the terms of our international commerce.
J
UCH a policy would
amount to an epic
betrayal of Brexit. As
the Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg
has said it would reduce our
nation to the position of a
“vassal state”, robbed of any
real say in the course of our
commercial destiny. Still under
the jurisdiction of the European courts, Britain would
have to implement all the EU’s
tariffs
and
protectionist
measures without any rights of
negotiation.
We could conclude no new
trade deals on our own. The
chance to reach innovative
agreements with rising economies such as those of India and
China would be lost. We would
have the worst of all worlds:
submission without any power.
The EU, still outraged at
Britain’s challenge to its federal
governance, wants precisely
such an outcome. The demand
for customs union membership
fits its punishment ethos. Last
week the EU’s chief negotiator
Michel Barnier and his team
VENOMOUS: The EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier
C\fDZB`ejkip
;X`cp<ogi\jjZfclde`jk
showed their uncompromising
intent when they threw out
Britain’s proposals on BritishIrish trade that would avoid a
hard border. In venomous
terms they boasted afterwards
that they had subjected the
British plan to “a systematic
and forensic annihilation”.
The clear aim of the EU is to
create a climate of political
blackmail where the Government will be pressurised into
remaining part of the customs
union. Indeed Barnier openly
stated that such membership
would be “a significant part of
the solution” to the Irish issue.
But there is absolutely no
justification for this bullying.
With a spirit of goodwill it
would be straightforward to
reach a settlement. After all,
Switzerland is not in the single
market or the customs union
yet has a long, frictionless
border with the EU. Every day
2.2 million people cross this
frontier, more than the entire
population of Northern Ireland.
Michael Ambuhl, Switzerland’s chief negotiator in talks
with the EU, has said: “If we
can sort it out, with vastly more
cross-border trade than there
is between the north of Ireland
and the south, this should be
simple.”
The EU is not interested in a
simple answer. What Brussels
wants is a stick with which to
threaten Britain. The same is
true of the fanatical Remoaners. They have tried and failed
with everything else so far:
demands for a second referen-

dum; increasingly desperate
reprises of Project Fear; expensive court cases; and lurid
claims of vast Russian-linked
conspiracies involving computer data.
Nothing has yet turned the
public mood against Brexit so
the
Remoaners
are
now
focusing their energies on
defeating the Government in
Parliament over the customs
union.
Last week the House of
Lords, which closely resembles
the EU in its aloofness and lack
of accountability, backed by
348 votes to 223 an amendment
which supported membership.
Ministers dismissed that vote
as non-binding but a more serious challenge could arise in the
Commons as an alliance of Tory
anti-Brexiteers and opposition
MPs plot to bring forward a
motion that piously calls for a
continued customs union with
the EU “for the sake of manufacturing, international trade,
smooth borders and Northern
Ireland peace”.
>
IVEN that the Tories
do not have a majority
in the Commons such
a motion could be successful.
Already there are signs that the
Government is in retreat. Eager
to appease the EU, Whitehall
has reportedly come up with a
complex proposal for a “customs partnership” by which
Britain would not only abide by
myriad EU rules but would also
act as a commercial tax collector for Brussels.
Rightly this idea has angered
Leave campaigners, such as exminister David Jones who
called it a “Byzantine scheme
designed to slow down Brexit”.
Even worse are the indicators
that Downing Street is ready
for outright surrender over the
customs union. “We wouldn’t
cry into our beer if forced to do
this,” said one official yesterday
about the possibility of a Parliamentary defeat.
This is a pathetic, spineless
attitude. The Government
should be implementing the
will of the people, not dreaming
up ways to emasculate Brexit.
Enough concessions have
already been made. We have
given ground on areas such as
the so-called divorce bill and
immigration. The moment has
come to stand up for British
independence.
Theresa May famously said
last year that “no deal is better
than a bad deal”. Customs
union membership would be a
very bad deal.

ODAY we are used to
women comedians. Back in
the 1960s though they were
not so common. The trailblazer was one Lynne
Denise Shepherd, better
known as Marti Caine. The workingclass girl from a council estate in
Sheffield overcame just about
every hardship imaginable to
become one of Britain’s best-loved
entertainers, only to be struck
down with cancer at the height of
her success, dying at the tragically
early age of 50.
New film Funny Cow, starring
Maxine Peake, tells the story of a
female comedian playing workingmen’s clubs in the 1970s and is said
to be loosely based on Caine’s story.
“We didn’t want to do a Marti Caine
biography but I looked at her life.
She had some pretty dark times
and that made her someone who
could tough it out. It takes a certain
type of woman to take on these
men because they were brutal,”
Peake said recently.
Born in January 1945, a few
months before the end of the
Second World War, Caine was only
seven when her father died of lung
cancer aged just 28. Her mother
sought solace in drink and drugs
and at the age of eight Marti was
placed in an orphanage.
She ran away after a couple of
weeks and then lived with her
paternal grandfather for two years.
When she was 10 she moved back
with her mother and things looked
to be improving. Her mother had a
new boyfriend called John, who
had moved in as a lodger. But when
John was killed in a scaffolding
accident she once again reached
for the bottle and the sleeping pills.
She got married again to a fellow
alcoholic and Marti often found
herself in the middle of fights.
On one occasion she broke a milk
bottle over her stepfather’s head.
She left home to avoid more
violence and returned to her grandfather’s but that was no safe haven.
Aged 12 she awoke to find her
grandfather, whom she had trusted,
in bed with her. He had been sexually abusing her while she was
asleep. It was a traumatic experience but Marti showed enormous
resilience to build a life for herself
after such a harrowing start.
From an early age she decided
that laughter was her best way of
coping. She liked to play the clown
at school and enjoyed going on
stage. Her first performance was as
one of the babes in the pantomime
Babes In The Wood. She
entered and won the “queen
of Sheffield clubs” beauty
contest at 14, which propelled her into the world of
professional entertainment.

STAR QUALITY: Marti Caine
in her heyday and, inset,
Maxine Peake in Funny Cow
8
T THE age of just 17
she married a local
butcher’s boy, Malcolm Stringer, with whom she
had two sons. “I was just
another starry-eyed wannabe
married with two babies, an
ex-beauty queen stuck in a
council estate with little hope
of fulfilling any dreams of a
better life,” she later wrote.
But two years later tragedy
struck again when her mother
committed suicide.
Marti urgently needed to
find £150 to pay for the funeral
but wanted to be at home in
the daytime to bring up her sons.
So she auditioned as a singer at the
Chapeltown Working Men’s Club.
She later admitted she was so nervous she sounded like “Edith Piaf
with Parkinson’s disease”. But she
got the gig, earning all of £4 for her
first performance.
Years later she revealed how she
acquired her stage name. “We took
a book from a shelf, which happened to be a gardening book. OK,
page 76. Malc turned to the
required page. Fourth line down,
second word along. ‘Greenfly’. OK,
page 34, and so on until bored with
the game Malc came across ‘tomato
cane – that’ll do, you’re built like
one. Call yourself Marta Cane.’”
The club misheard the first word
on the telephone as Marti and the
name stuck.
Caine’s transformation from
singer to comedian was unplanned.
“The comedy came out when I
went on stage and was so nervous
that I started talking. People
seemed to like that so I have
gradually built it up,” she said.
Against all the odds she proved a
big hit with a largely male clientele that wasn’t always easy to
please. “The material was as
earthy as the clubs she played
and the novelty of a glamorous
young girl in a figure-hugging
dress doing blue comedy on the
club scene of the 1960s served
her well,” says Georgy Jamieson
of the British Comedy Society.
Caine worked the clubs for 15
years. She was popular with both
audiences and her fellow performers. While she had made a
name for herself in her native
Yorkshire
Caine
achieved
national fame in 1975 when she
won ITV talent show New Faces.
She scored 98 out of 100 in the
grand final, defeating future stars
Victoria Wood and Lenny Henry.
Success brought her own television show and appearances at
the Royal Command Performance.
She also recorded no fewer than
five albums and appeared on This
Is Your Life twice.
Marti had made it to the top and
was earning more than £100,000
a year by the late 1970s but her
personal life still had more than
its fair share of misfortune. In 1978
her husband eventually left her for
her best friend and the divorce case
was front-page news. In the early
1980s she became embroiled in
political controversy when she
performed in the title role of the
musical Funny Girl in the Sun City
resort in apartheid South Africa,
which led her to be placed on a UN
blacklist of performers.
She
refused
to
apologise,
declaring: “I was biased against
South Africans before I went but
once I got there I changed my
mind. There are injustices but I
have seen worse injustices in Brixton and in Attercliffe [a suburb of
Sheffield]”.
In 1984 Marti appeared in a
new BBC sitcom Hilary and two
years later the former New Faces
winner returned in triumph as the
hostess of the revamped show. Her
popularity after a decade of
celebrity status was showing no
sign of waning. She had proven –
unlike many other talent show
winners – that she was no flash in
the pan. She had remarried in 1984
to television and theatre director
Kenneth Ives and the future looked
extremely bright.
Then in 1988 she received the
devastating news that she had a
malignant lymphoma. Even then
her sense of humour didn’t desert
her. “Does that mean I’m a lymphomaniac?” she asked her doctor.
Rather than wallowing in self-pity
Marti reacted to her illness with
great positivity and set about using
her high public profile to raise
money for cancer research.
She even joked about the effects
of chemotherapy. “Losing my hair
didn’t bother me, which was a surprise, although you feel incredibly
cold. I used to sleep in a woolly hat
which is not very conducive to a
romantic relationship.”
E
OW looking painfully thin
she continued to perform
on TV and in stage shows
and pantomimes. After surviving
for much longer than doctors had
originally thought, the end came
on November 4, 1995, when she
died at her home in Oxfordshire.
“She achieved the impossible for a
woman, to be both beautiful and
funny,” was the tribute paid to her
by her fellow comedian Ken Dodd
Marti Caine would still only be
73 today had she lived. Warm,
witty and kind she was a heroic
trailblazer for female comedians
who brightened up so many lives
while defiantly holding back the
tears from her own.

WHAT makes you feel you’re
not doing enough? Apart
from just about everything
really. Worrying about not taking
enough exercise, eating the
right food, keeping a clean and
clutter-free home. There you are
zapping through your to-do list,
keeping up with the news, friends
and exploring new hobbies and all
that other unnecessary stuff that
distracts us daily.
Sometimes our lives can feel
incomplete as if there is something
missing from them or something
that we have overlooked, some
nebulous important thing if only we
knew what. A sense that enough is
not enough or an unacknowledged
craving for wholeness.
We can conceal this feeling with
busy-ness, shopping, drinking,
gambling or using social media but
ultimately find that it’s just
papering over the sensation of
“what else?” Like eating a wafer
when your hunger is ravenous.
We want more but of what?
Perhaps a greater connection
with others, a sense of peace and
“job done” satisfaction or knowing
you are in the right place at the
right time and all is well. The worst
thing we can do is look through
social media at other people’s
adventures, friends and fun
times and feel somehow diminished
by our own lot.
Better work harder, step up,
put things into motion and hit the
ground running to get “there”

HISTORIAN Mary Beard claims she has been

wherever there is. FOMO (fear of
missing out) has become a common
social anxiety as if someone
somewhere is having the life we
wished we had ordered. Life seems
so full and sometimes so empty at
the same time.
There is however a simple salve
that fills those voids and fills that
gap like a psychic cavity wall
insulation if you wish to try it.
It is called stopping and taking
time to pause for thought. Looking
around and being grateful for what
is, what you have and for being
alive. Trust that you are enough and
have enough and then take a deep
breath and breathe out all the
weeds of woe and nettles of need.
Allow yourself to feel the discomfort
of just being, of the uncertainty of
not knowing and of the crowded
thoughts going on for you. In the
middle of all that noise there is
a place of infinite calm.
Connect with a sense of
wholeness not only in you but in
everything. Life is imperfect but it is
magnificent and you are a complete
person connected with it. Allow
yourself to feel whole and more than
enough and to trust that you have
nothing missing. Be excited about
being and take that feeling with you
wherever you go.
Build in times to pause, look
out of the window, practise
day-dreaming and being still and
grateful. You will find increasingly
that you will need nothing to feel
complete and all else is a bonus.

Relationship split ‘sent TV’s
Dale into spiral of depression’
DALE Winton never recovered
from a relationship heartbreak
that “sucked the life out of him,”
friends in the US said yesterday.
The TV presenter, who died
last week aged 62, could not get
over splitting with a hairdresser
20 years his junior two years ago
and afterwards spiralled into
depression.
He was so upset that friends
would regularly check on him at
his home in Florida.
Heavy smoking and drinking
also left him suffering physically,
with breathing problems and
shoulder and back pain.
Neighbour John Grant, 60,
revealed that Winton’s depression continued long after splitting from the hairdresser, who
was rumoured to be seeing other
men while dating the star.
“Dale said it took everything
out of him,” Mr Grant said.
“He must have been heavily in
love with this person. He would
say that he couldn’t have fun any
more and that the break-up had
got him all ****** up. The broken
heart was killing him for a long
time. I always worried that Dale
would take his own life.”
John Wenzel, 60, another
neighbour, revealed the love split
still weighed heavy on the Supermarket Sweep host. Mr Wenzel
said: “We last spoke about six
weeks ago – and Dale was in a
9pD`Z_X\cG`ZbXi[
really bad state of mind. We
spoke about politics, then he
mentioned his depression.
“He said he was still devastated by the break-up of his relationship and couldn’t get over it.
He said, ‘I have a broken heart’.
“He really must have been in
love with the man and I think
the depression of his break-up is
what killed him.
“I honestly think the only thing
that could have saved his life is if
Ê?\jX`[_\_X[X
Yifb\e_\XikXe[
nXj[\mXjkXk\[Ë
he had managed to find someone else to help mend his
heart.”
The star was found dead at his
home in Whetstone, north London, last Wednesday. Police are
treating his death as “unexplained” but not suspicious.
After rising to fame during the
1990s and 2000s, he had been
spending more time in the US.
This year he made his TV comeback with Channel 5 series Dale
Winton’s Florida Fly Drive.
At home in the US, he could
often be seen riding his bike and
had a fleet of luxury cars.
But father-of-three Mr Wenzel
believes he struggled with the
pressures of fame.
He said: “Dale was a sweetheart, he was a guy who always
wanted to be seen in the light.
But he didn’t always want to
shine – sometimes he wanted to
turn that light off.”
Winton’s mother also had a
history of depression, which led
her to take her own life.
In a 2010 interview, the star
spoke about the “terrible” effects
depression can have, adding that
he believed most suicides were
“merely a cry for help”.
He said: “Let’s not forget, 99
times out of a hundred, a suicide
attempt is a cry for help so they
don’t really mean to do it.
“My mother tried it many
times – she was forever being
rushed to the hospital, getting
her stomach pumped. The bond
that a mother has with her son is
like no other.”
He also spoke about his desire
to be liked and his insecurities,
which included his fear of putting
on weight after battling the
scales since he was a child.
In his autobiography, My Story,
he also admitted taking “superstrong
slimming
pills
and
amphetamines” to shed some
pounds.

A GREAT-great-great
grandmother believed
to be the world’s oldest
person has died aged
117.
Nabi Tajima, who was
born on August 4, 1900,
died in Kikai in southern
Japan on Saturday after
being hospitalised in
January.
She raised seven sons
and two daughters and
reportedly had more
than 160 descendants.
Tajima’s grandson
Hiroyuki, 65, said: “She
passed away as if falling
asleep. As she had been
a hard worker, I want to
tell her: ‘Rest well.’”
Guinness World
Records had been in the
process of confirming
Tajima’s claim, which
has been recognised by
the US-based
Gerontology Research
Group (GRG).
Tajima’s secret to
longevity was “eating
delicious things and
sleeping well”, the
group said.
The GRG said Chiyo

THE Bishopsgate device
consisted of one ton of
fertiliser and diesel fuel
hidden in a stolen Iveco
tipper truck parked outside
the Hong Kong and Shanghai
Bank in the heart of the City.
When it went off at 10.27am
on April 24, 1993, it did so
with the explosive power of
over a ton of TNT and gouged
a 15ft crater in the street.
The blast destroyed the
nearby St Ethelburga’s
church and severely
damaged Liverpool Street
station and the NatWest
Tower. No building within
a 500-yard radius escaped
unscathed.
Newspaper photographer
Ed Henty was killed and
44 others were injured. The
cost of fixing the damage
the bomb caused is put at
more than £1billion, making
it the costliest terrorist attack
at the time.

REMEMBER April 24, 1993,
as if it were yesterday. It was
a Saturday and I was due
on a night shift at the
Daily Express to photograph
Princess Diana at the Royal
Opera House. Then the phone
rang. It was the picture desk
asking if I was available for a
double shift. The switchboard
had received a coded warning
of a bomb in the Bishopsgate
area of the City of London and
they needed a photographer
there pronto.
As I left the house I thought:
“Here we go, another day running
headlong towards what everyone
else is running away from.” In the
1990s I covered about 20 IRA
bombs in London so my camera
kit was always ready and I was
halfway out of the door before
the call came to an end.
I arrived at the scene pretty
quickly as I lived in Stoke
Newington, about four miles from
the City. I found somewhere to
park my car, grabbed my kit and
made my way towards the police
tapes as a large area had been
cordoned off.
At this point I met two colleagues, Ed Henty from The News
Of The World and John Shenton
of the Sunday Mirror. They, like
me, were trying to find a way
round the police cordons to get
close enough for a picture. We
went in different directions and
when I got to the next police tape
a PC I knew from Hackney told
me there was a “bloody great
lorry bomb” on the other side of
the NatWest Tower, now known
as Tower 42.
I followed the tape around the
exclusion zone and when I saw an
alleyway I ducked
down it and made
my way towards
a good vantage
point.
What I didn’t
know was that the
other end of the
alley was nearer to
the bomb than I
realised and if it
had gone off then
the blast would
have
funnelled
down between the
buildings and I
might not be writing this today.
Looking up the
road I saw a bombsquad van. If it
contained one of
those robots that
were
used
to
examine explosive
devices close up
it would make a
good image.

Daily Express editor GARY JONES
recalls a much-loved colleague
QUITE literally the finger of fate
kept me from Bishopsgate that
day. As a junior reporter keen to
make his mark I was usually
dispatched to where an IRA
bomb had either gone off or was
about to.
But not this day.
The news editor’s hand
hovered in my direction but
then moved to another young
colleague. I slumped in my chair,
disappointed to have missed the
chance of a big story.
Some time later news of
the explosion reached the
newsroom. I quickly learned
Ed Henty was the photographer
who had been sent on the
assignment.
I knew Ed well. We often
worked together. A great bloke,
a hardworking family man, who
loved his flash cars, especially a
bright red Alfa Romeo. We often
shared a pint in his local pub.
I pulled out his business
card – I still have it to this day
– and kept dialling the number
repeatedly. No answer. No
answer. No answer. I knew he
was dead. Ed always answered
his phone. He adored his wife
and two young children. I knew
they would be devastated.
As I walked home I kept
asking myself: “What if I’d been
with him? Would I be dead, too?
Would I, could I, have kept
Ed away from the bomb that
instantly ended his life?” I’ll
never know.
I had no idea my new
colleague Paul was so close to

death himself on that day. His
recollection of that Saturday
has moved me greatly.
It was another era. Long
before newspapers thought
about the safety and wellbeing
of journalists. The risks were
part of the job though Ed was
never a photographer who
would take unnecessary ones.
Why he was so close to the
bomb is a question that still
troubles me today. Why, Ed,
why?
Occasionally Ed’s chubby
face and beaming smile flash up
in my brain. Twenty five years is
a long time, a long time without
a devoted father and a husband.
I often mourn his family’s loss.
And I will do so more than ever
tomorrow.
Rest in peace, Ed.

my car, which contained the suit
I needed to cover the event at the
Royal Opera House. Unfortunately
it was now out of reach behind the
police cordon. I got a cab to Covent
Garden and prepared for Diana’s
arrival.
I was wearing jeans and a shirt,
both covered in the grime from the
blast, with my hair in disarray. As
the Princess stepped from her car
and caught sight of this apparition
she stopped and stared at me before
quickly going inside.

anybody was missing who we would
expect to see there. We asked why
they were asking and they said that
they had found a body of someone
they thought was a photographer.
We told them it must be Ed and
the atmosphere turned very grim.
Even people who covered this kind
of thing pretty regularly were in
shock. Ed was one of the most
liked and respected photographers
on Fleet Street.
At this point there was not a lot
NE of her entourage asked
why I was in such a state
and I explained. Seconds
later, to my amazement, she came
over to me and said she was sorry
to hear about my colleague and
expressed her sympathies.
I went back to the picture desk in
a daze and was about to knock off
for the day when I was told that two
minicabs hijacked by the IRA had
exploded, one in Judd Street near
King’s Cross and the other in Finsbury Park. And I needed to get
there – fast.
By this time I had retrieved my
car and went with a reporter first
to Judd Street – where I got to an
upstairs window to photograph the
scene – and then to Finsbury Park.
By this time that morning’s paper
was already printed so I waited for
first light when I got pictures of the
forensic team removing the car.
A busy, harrowing day. I finally
got home 36 hours after I left the
day before. I was just relieved to
have survived Bishopsgate.

PLANS for a road
tunnel near
Stonehenge have
been attacked by
archaeologists.
The tunnel, part
of a £1.6billion
upgrade of the
A303, aims to
restore the tranquil
setting of the
famous stone circle
by removing road
noise.
But 22 experts
who have carried
out research within
the World Heritage
Site warned the
work would destroy
important
archaeological
remains.
In their
submission they
called the A303
proposal “a sad and
retrograde step”.
One of the
academics,
Professor David
Jacques, who has
led the work on the
Blick Mead site to
the east of
Stonehenge, said:
“It is down to our
generation to
protect our ancient
environment for
future generations
so that it may be
better understood.”

THE Daily Express editorial
(“Government must tackle scourge
of moped crimes”, April 20) is
indeed a worthy aspiration. But if it
does nothing about crime on its
doorstep, the government is even
less likely to act on the lawlessness
in other parts of the country.
Gun and knife crime are everyday
events in our towns and cities.
Even rural areas are not exempt.
You would think that any
member of the government would
shudder at the prospect of the
Conservatives being the party of
lawlessness and disorder.

IT’S nice to see a persistent
offender arrested by a member of
the public. Bravo Steve Canny for
tackling Leon de Silva (“Banker in
his boxers tackled bike raider”,
April 20).
It’s quite clear that scooter gangs
will happily resort to violence.
So many of us will be saying, “18
months in a young offenders
institution? I’m sure that will teach
him a lesson.”
No it won’t. Not unless De Silva
experiences a disciplined regime
which makes him behave. And
when he comes out and starts his
offending again, the police will be
blamed for rising crime rates.
No wonder we are all despairing.
It seems the liberal establishment
won’t act until the gangs are
marching on their own homes,
looting and pillaging. Then they’ll
say, “Oh dear. Perhaps we should
have put the victims first.”

I DIDN’T know whether to laugh or
cry when I read the headline
(“Alarm at fear British passports
could be made in the Far East or
Eastern Europe”, April 20).
This is beyond belief and borders
on criminal stupidity.
Commons leader Andrea
Leadsom indicates that this is all
to do with free trade. No, Mrs
Leadsom, this is to do with
national security and if you can’t
see that then you really should
consider your position.
I appeal to Theresa May to
override her ministers and officials,
tell them where their patriotic duty
lies and insist British passports are
made by a British firm.
A decision to award such a
contract to a foreign firm would be
a total betrayal of the country.

YOUR article (“Sick Britain”, April 19) highlighted the
alarming fact that people with multiple health conditions
aren’t receiving the care they need and deserve.
As a medical director for Marie Curie I help patients
who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and
often have complex conditions.
Through our research we know that in England alone,
44 per cent of adults in the last year of life have multiple
long-term conditions. But our health and social care
system is, sadly, not equipped to provide individualised
care to every person living with multiple diseases.
When terminally ill patients slip through the cracks it
can mean they die without the dignity we all deserve and
often in unnecessary pain. Palliative care professionals
always say you need to treat the person, not the disease.
A lack of awareness around what palliative care can
achieve means patients will continue to be let down by a
system that isn’t just struggling to cope but is drowning.

MICE are spreading superbugs
such as E. coli, C. difficile, Shigella
and Salmonella, some of which are
antibiotic resistant (“Mice
spreading superbugs”, April 18).
However they are not the only
disease spreaders. All dogs when
taken for a walk will sniff at every
obnoxious substance lying in the
street. Then the dog is taken home
and licks the children’s faces.
Regulations on dogs must be
tightened up and brought up to
date, so it is now time to bring
back the dog licence.
I see people every day on the
street walking their dogs, not one
dog but two, three or even four.
As well as bringing back the dog
licence it should be law, only one
dog per person.

IT is said that patriotism

I have a complex relationship
with my homeland. On one hand
I’m very proud of our countryside

people. But on the other I’m
completely turned off by jingoism.
It’s just so reductive.

FOLLOWING the results
of that study, it is very
clear I am in the minority
in wanting to mark St George’s
Day with a public holiday.
There’s a stigma about being
patriotic in England that you just
don’t get anywhere else.
The Irish have absolutely no
qualms in celebrating their country
and its heritage on March 17.
Likewise in Barcelona the
Catalans really show us how St
George’s Day should be celebrated.
Local men buy their women a
rose and the women buy their men
a book. It’s a wonderful tradition.
We just pretend it’s not happening.

seems to see “country living” as a
fantasy for those unable to afford
country properties and is
incredibly offended by a farmer’s
wife who, “Lets her horse empty
itself all over my street” (“Do
‘moaners’ deserve countryside
lifestyle?”, April 20).
Firstly, Mr Saunders. I doubt the
deeds to your overpriced property
include the street.
And secondly, do you seriously
think that one has the ability to
prevent a horse from “emptying
itself”?
My advice to him would be to get
his shovel and put the offending
pile around his roses, like other
wise country people would.

I AGREE entirely with Daily
Express columnist Frederick
Forsyth’s comments about today’s
singers (April 20).
These so-called television
“talent” shows such as The X

a platform for people who can
shout the loudest, scream the
highest and show the most.
If I’m being brutally honest I
don’t see any talent at all in any of

Today is St George’s Day but who was St George
anyway, and why is he England’s patron saint?
(%According to legend, St George was a Roman
soldier of Palestinian or Greek origin who was put
to death on April 23, 303 for refusing to recant his
Christian faith.
)%The legend about St George killing a dragon did
not appear until the 11th century...

about George of Cappadocia who was another St

First Crusade led by a vision of St George’s cross.

RIDE and groom Samantha
and Lyle Galley splashed out
thousands of pounds so that
they could hold their wedding
in a picturesque Tudor
country mansion but mishaps
marred their big day.
The not-so-happy couple blamed
poor service at their chosen venue,
Creeksea Place in Essex, which left
them doubting they had received the
best value when they tied the knot in
July last year.
The pair planned and saved for 15
months in order that they and their
guests would have the time of their
lives.
“We paid £13,000 but think what we
got for that was very average,” Lyle
told Crusader.
The problems included the toilets
running out of loo roll and paper
towels and the continual relocking of
the disabled lavatory. “A guest had to
keep asking for the key,” explained
Samantha.
And although bottles of wine were
provided for each table it was the
Galleys’ understanding, they say, that
whatever was left from the allocation
would be returned to the bar.
“But guests told us afterwards they
saw full bottles being removed from
the tables that didn’t reappear later,”
added Lyle.
“On the night there were two types
of beer available, the cheapest ran

Picture: ALAMY posed by models
MARRIED BLISS: It’s all in the detail
out after an hour so only the premium
priced was available.”
But the failure that had the biggest
lasting impact was the one the couple
had elected to be responsible for, the
sound system, which had been
working when their helpers tested it
earlier in the day.
But as Samantha prepared to walk
down the aisle to a specially chosen
playlist broadcast via Lyle’s iPhone,
there was just the sound of silence.
“We tried in vain to fix it,” explained
Lyle. “Many guests could not hear us
take our vows and there was no sound
on the video that was being filmed.
“One of our friends who was in the
band playing later helped us out by
singing but delays then made us late
for the photographer.”
After the couple voiced their misgivings, Claire Ashwell, the wedding planner for the venue’s company, Creeksea
Place Events Ltd, commented somewhat mysteriously: “I can only apologise for the toilet paper issue – [and]
say ‘delicately’ that ‘unusual’ events
transpired that unfortunately ensured
that multiple reams of paper were
used in a very small space of time.”
And director Jon-Paul Bertorelli
Lindsey said: “We apologise monumentally that you weren’t completely
happy with your event and again
assure you that we have taken on
board everything you have so diplomatically outlined and will be
addressing it.”
But a meeting between the parties
failed to deliver the partial refund the
Galleys were seeking, merely a “goodwill gesture”, not as compensation,
for them to return to Creeksea Place
for a free high tea. “There’s been a lot
of gushing but we have been fobbed
off,” Lyle declared when he asked
Crusader about their rights.
The problem was in the original
contract, which seemed short on
material detail. Customers were given
a choice however about many of the
services, on whether to take those
supplied by Creeksea, or to do it
themselves.
As they had agreed to do this with
the music, whatever the reason for
the failure, it was their responsibility.
Little was specified regarding the
drinks either. They did have a point
about the sanitary arrangements
though so we asked Mr Bertorelli
Lindsey to reconsider the couple’s
complaint. But there was no quarter
given by the Creeksea boss, whose
response was quite dismissive and
who also maintained that financial
compensation in this particular case
“was never a feasible outcome”.
As the Galleys now consider their
position they thanked Crusader for
the support saying: “We hope others
planning their dream day can learn
from our experience.”

Following their unhappy
wedding day experience
Lyle and Samantha Galley
have the following advice
for couples tying the knot:
¬ÊDefine who is responsible
for what service on the day.
Get everything spelled out in
writing, including promises
of support.
¬ Have a plan B if you
supply your own sounds or
any service.
¬ Define drinks allocations,
surplus and substitutions
costs in the contract.
¬ Check the situation on
any other refreshments and
what happens if there are
any delays in setting up.
¬ Love the moment but stay
sceptical.

Rumours I’ve split with Mark
are so painful, says Michelle
9p>`cc`Xe:iXnc\p
FORMER Coronation Street star
Michelle Keegan yesterday spoke
of her pain at rumours that
her long-distance marriage to TV
presenter Mark Wright is on the
rocks after just three years.
Gossip began when Michelle
stayed in Britain to concentrate
on her acting career while Mark
took a job as a correspondent for
the LA-based entertainment
show Extra last year.
It was also fuelled when she
was later seen without her wedding ring and £20,000 engagement
ring, which she explained she had
taken off for safekeeping.
Michelle, 30, spent six years
playing shop worker Tina McIntyre in the ITV soap before she
left in 2014. She has since starred
in the acclaimed BBC One drama
Ordinary Lives playing a drugs
mule and also portrayed Tina, wife of
England football hero Bobby Moore, in
ITV’s Tina And Bobby. She is currently
starring as Corporal Georgie Lane in the
BBC military drama series Our Girl.
She spoke about her marriage in an
interview yesterday, launching her clothing line for shopping website Very the
same day. “You get married and everyone’s happy and then straight away it’s
stories about how you’re splitting up. We
try not to let it get to us but it’s tough.
“It hurts our families and it makes
what is an already difficult situation for
the two of us [being apart] even harder,
but you deal with it.”
Michelle said she and Mark, 31, a star
of The Only Way Is Essex reality show,
try not to spend more than three weeks
apart, although they did not see each
other for six weeks when she filmed the
BBC One army drama Our Girl In South
Africa. When they are not together she
said they text and call each other.
She is currently auditioning for work
in LA to be with Mark full-time but
admits she is choosy about projects.
She added: “Mark loves LA. He says
it’s like Essex with bells on. I do love
LA. It’s sunny and easy to be healthy
and happy there. But I’m a northern girl. I miss my family, Manchester and my nine brilliant girlfriends. It’s just not me. I’m not
an LA woman.
“[However] when I get to
LA the thing we do most is
go to the supermarket. I
cook and we’ll lie on the
sofa and watch romcoms or Netflix. We
miss each other and
staying in is our
favourite way of
a date night.”

STRAWBERRY fans face big price
increases after poor weather across
Europe pushed up wholesale costs
by over 60 per cent in a month.
Growers in Spain, the biggest
source of UK imports, have seen crop
yields fall by eight per cent due to
heavy rain and low temperatures. The
harvest has also been hit by a fungal
disease brought on by the bad weather.
Supplies from Israel and Egypt, which reach
Britain in winter and early spring, have run out.
Fruit from Holland is due soon, but prices there
are traditionally higher.
British growers hope the recent warm weather
could trigger a late boost for the UK yield.
ALMOST one in six Britons has considered leaving
their partner because of their snoring, according
to a survey. More than three-quarters claim to
have an other half who snores – with a third saying
the din leaves them at their wits’ end.
But six out of 10 snorers deny they have a problem, leading 28 per cent to record their partner
sleeping just to prove how bad the noise is.
Two-thirds of the women in the survey blamed
alcohol, claiming their partner’s snoring was worse
when they had been drinking, forcing them to sleep
in a separate room up to three times a month.
The poll of 1,500 people was commissioned by
Breathe Right, a company that makes nasal strips
designed to help alleviate the problem, to mark
National Stop Snoring week, which starts today.

GREASE IS THE
WORD AT 40
By Jane Warren
John Travolta (Danny),
64: The Hollywood
A-lister hit a slump before
his career was revived
by 1994’s Pulp Fiction.
The star of TV mini-series,
The People v OJ Simpson,
will appear this year in
mob film Gotti. A
Scientologist and also
a keen pilot, his home in
a Florida aviation
community has its own
runway.
Olivia Newton-John
(Sandy), 69: Known
principally as a singer
– she had a residency in
Las Vegas in 2014 –
Newton-John, who has a
daughter, is dealing with
the return of stage IV
breast cancer.
Stockard Channing
(Rizzo), 74: The
acclaimed actress had
major roles in TV’s
The Good Wife and The
West Wing in which she
starred for seven years
as First Lady Abbey
Bartlet. She has also
appeared on Broadway.
Jeff Conaway
(Kenickie): Conaway
died of pneumonia in 2011
at the age of 60 following
a long battle with
substance abuse. After
appearing in the TV show
Taxi he struggled to
maintain an acting career.
Didi Conn (Frenchy),
66: She appeared in
follow-up film Grease 2 in
1982. The actress is now a
spokesperson for autism,
a condition diagnosed
in her son Daniel.
ICONIC:
Olivia

cast as

A

actress herself. “I got
into that trailer with
those guys and they put me
into that outfit and the hair and
I walked out and the whole
crew turned around,” NewtonJohn recalls. “I remember
thinking, ‘Oh my – I’ve been
doing this all wrong.’ It was very
freeing. Not just for Sandy but
for me as well.”
Originally a 1971 stage show
created by advertising copywriter Jim Jacobs and art teacher
Warren Casey, the movie was
filmed over two scorching
months at Venice High School in
Los Angeles.
“They had to keep the windows closed because next door
was a pork plant,” recalls Didi
Conn, who played Pink Lady’s
girl gang member Frenchy. “It
was so noisy and so very, very
hot but everybody was just
WHERE ARE
THEY NOW?
Pictures: REX/SHUTTERSTOCK; GETTY
I
N THE summer of 1978 when
my friends all saw Grease,
my mother was straight on
to the fact that the most
successful movie musical of
the 20th century – the one
that made £300million and made
superstars of John Travolta and
Olivia Newton-John – was loaded
with sexual innuendo.
I was nine and wasn’t allowed
to go. Perhaps she was right. But
now I will finally have my chance
to watch it on the big screen
along with a new generation of
fans because Grease – a PG – is
being re-released in cinemas for
its 40th anniversary.
This news has released a slew
of revelations and reminiscences
from the cast of the film
phenomenon, not least the fact
that everyone in the somewhat
mature cast – including 28-yearold Olivia – had to pass a “crow’s
feet test” to play the 1950s gumchewing high-schoolers. If facial
lines were visible in close-ups
contracts weren’t signed.
“Grease is part of the American culture,” says Travolta, who
played bad boy Danny – all
greased-back hair and black
leather jacket, à la Elvis. “Everyone’s been to school, everyone
understood those feelings.”
But he nearly didn’t get the
part. Travolta only came into the
frame after Henry Winkler turned
it down, afraid of being typecast.
Ironically Winkler will instead for
ever be associated with the Fonz
in TV’s Happy Days. As for girlnext-door Sandy, Newton-John
got the part after Travolta
insisted that the little-known
Australian singer would be perfect. Carrie Fisher was also considered and Marie Osmond
turned the part down.
“She was like Marilyn Monroe
mixed with some motorcycle
chick,” recalls Travolta of the
moment
Newton-John
was
transformed like an urban Cinderella in the final scene. Her
skin-tight leather trousers – into
which she was sewn – and backcombed big hair meant that
director Randal Kleiser didn’t
recognise her.
Secrets of the retro 1950s film
sensation which is currently
rocking back in cinemas in 2018
having fun, dancing and trying
new things – you had to or you’d
faint from the heat.”
Meanwhile Jeff Conaway, who
played Danny’s friend Kenickie,
was busy seducing the film’s
extras. It is also claimed that the
“hickeys from Kenickie”, planted
on the neck of his girlfriend
Rizzo, played by Stockard Channing, were real at his insistence.
Originally Lucie Arnaz had been
cast as Rizzo but she lost the
part after her mother Lucille Ball
called the studio complaining
that her girl shouldn’t have to
undergo a screen test.
Travolta fared better in building his fame. In the stage version
Kenickie sings the iconic song
Greased Lightning but riding
high after Saturday Night Fever
– which finished filming four days
before Grease started shooting –
Travolta convinced Kleiser to let
Danny sing it instead.
And it wasn’t the only song
change. After filming had ended
the producers realised that
Sandy’s character needed a
ballad of her own. The following
year
Newton-John’s
perfect
rendition of Hopelessly Devoted
To You was nominated for an
Academy Award.
The film’s success took everyone by surprise, including studio
bosses. “We were the secondary
movie when it was being made,”
reveals Kleiser, explaining that
Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
Band was filming at Paramount
Studios at the same time. “At
our cast and crew party we had
hamburgers and hot dogs and
they had shrimp.”
But the filming of Grease did
wrap on a high. “Somebody had
made some brownies,” recalls
Didi Conn. “There was definitely
something in them. I won’t mention names but I just remember
laughing a lot.”

HICKEY
A STUDENT sketch by John Lennon,
pictured, in dubious taste depicting
himself as Adolf Hitler,
has sold for a hefty
£38,500. The late Beatle –
who went on to write Give
Peace A Chance – drew
the self-portrait at
Liverpool College of Art in
the late 1950s.
The ink doodle features
Lennon standing behind a
podium and flashing the Nazi salute above
hand-written text which reads: “Heil John,
Heil John, Heil John, Heil.”
“The fact that he even thought of
depicting himself as Hitler is weird,” says
New York memorabilia dealer Gary Zimet,
who arranged the sale, however adding:
“Original Lennon drawings are desirable
and rare.” Lennon later unsuccessfully
suggested including the dictator among
celebrity images on the cover of The
Beatles’ 1967 Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts
Club Band album.
ROYAL bride-to-be Meghan Markle has
reportedly had her wedding dress taken in
three times which suggests she’s been cutting
out her favourite fattening meal: the oddly
titled Poutine. She developed a liking for this
Canadian dish while filming in Toronto. It
consists of chips, cheese curds and gravy.
“The cheese curds should make a
squeaking noise when you bite into them,”
she enthuses.
SIXTIES model-turned-novelist Sandra
Howard, wife of ex-Tory leader Michael
Howard, is celebrating being able to see
clearly following eye surgery.
“Having just had two cataracts done
I have two new eyes now, no more contact
lenses and glasses... it’s liberation!”
KNOWN for her svelte figure in her 1970s
modelling heyday Jerry Hall, pictured,
confesses she can no
longer fit into her old
designer threads – so her
daughters Elizabeth and
Georgia have inherited them.
“I was so skinny when
I was a model that none of
the clothes from that era
fit me now but they suit the
girls perfectly.” Not that
Jerry is into vintage herself. “I hate vintage
shopping. Everything smells and you always
get moths.” Now she’s married to multimillionaire Rupert Murdoch there’s surely no
need for second-hand clothes anyway.
NATIONAL culinary treasure Mary Berry
says passing academic exams isn’t always
needed. “My best advice was given to me
by my boss at the time. I was asked to
write for a magazine and I said, ‘I can cook
but I didn’t pass English at School Cert
[GSCE equivalent].’ And she told me,
‘Write as you talk.’ So I leave out all the
fancy words in my recipes.”
OSCAR-winning actress Rachel Weisz may be
about to become an older mother at 48 by
James Bond star husband Daniel Craig but
she won’t be attempting to hold back the
years with Botox.
“It should be banned for actors, as steroids
are for sportsmen,” she has declared. “Acting
is all about expression, why would you want
to iron out a frown?”
WILLIAM Hartnell, TV’s first Doctor Who,
is remembered as a grey-haired,
grandfatherly Time Lord. Yet the veteran
British character actor, who died on this
day in 1975 aged 67, was only 55 when he
started playing the role – the same age as
Peter Capaldi who channelled a more
youthful demeanour in 2013.
Hartnell quit in 1966 but his incarnation
lives on with Harry Potter actor David
Bradley who has recreated the cantankerous
first Doctor in more recent episodes.

Can ‘forest
bathing’ help
me turn over
a new leaf?
TAKE ROOT:
Elizabeth gets
back to her
rural childhood
Fed up with city life,
ELIZABETH ARCHER
tries out a fresh
wellbeing trend
that promises to
reconnect her with
Mother Nature
A
S I felt the cool, damp
earth beneath the soles
of my feet I realised just
how long it was since I’d
last walked outside
barefoot. Apart from
dipping my toes in the sea on
holiday it’s been years since I
stepped outdoors without first
pulling on a pair of shoes.
But after reading Sarah Ivens’s
new book Forest Therapy, I was
inspired to get back in touch with
Mother Nature.
Like me Sarah grew up in a rural
area and often spent time outside
when she was younger.
“As a child, being outdoors was
second nature,” she says. “I spent
most of my time stuck in mud and
mushing petals into perfume or
pretending to get married to the
neighbours’ son under the cherry
blossom tree in our back garden.”
But after moving to London and
then New York to work as a
journalist the great outdoors felt
like a distant memory.
“I was eating all three meals of
the day in the office and relying on
espresso and slices of pizza to
survive. I was grey, my life was
grey.”
It wasn’t until years later that
she rediscovered the healing
power of nature, walking in the
grounds of a temple while on
holiday in Japan.
“My senses were hugged by
a falling confetti of cherry blossom.
I could feel the anxiety drift away
as I allowed myself to be washed
in green,” she says.
This experience inspired her to
explore the practice of forest
bathing: a wellness trend that is
set to take the UK by storm.
Forest bathing – or shinrin-yoku
– means immersing yourself in
nature by walking in the woods
and taking in all the sights and
sounds.
Some devotees like to meditate
while others take a long walk, sit
in silence or forage for berries and
nettles to make tea.
Repeated studies have shown
that people who spend more time
in nature feel happier, more
creative and less stressed.
In many ways I can relate to
Sarah. Living and working in
central London I couldn’t be
further from the Yorkshire moors
where I grew up.
Mostly I love the buzz of London
but recently I’ve started to feel
a bit stifled. Walking to work on
a sunny day, tower blocks soar
above my head, my nostrils are
filled with the overpowering
stench of exhaust fumes and hot
concrete. Even when I lie in bed at
night I can still hear the rumble of
traffic on the busy road outside.
So I decided to take the plunge
and embrace the great outdoors.
On a blisteringly hot April
morning I packed a rucksack and
headed to Epping Forest – a huge
area of woodland that hugs the
border between London and
Essex.
As I climbed out of the car I was
struck by how peaceful it was. At
first it felt odd setting off for a
walk in the forest by myself but
I soon settled into a rhythm.
I followed a path until the
thicket closed over my head and
the hush of the trees surrounded
me. Before long I came to
a clearing and decided to try
meditating to clear my mind and
take in the sounds of the forest.
I chose a mound at the base of
FEELING GROUNDED:
Elizabeth deep in Epping
Forest, trying meditation
a large tree and settled down.
Closing my eyes I took a deep
breath of the forest air. As I
breathed out I tried to let any
thoughts of my life back in London
slowly fade away.
W
ITH a few breaths
I could feel my body
relax and my ears
became more attuned to the rustle
of the wind in the trees.
I could hear the nearby lake
lapping its shore and a bird calling
from a branch.
I was amazed at how much
calmer and more grounded I felt
after just a few minutes.
Spurred on by the feeling of
peacefulness I decided to explore
with my other senses.
Feeling brave I slipped off my
socks and trainers and walked
through the clearing barefoot.
I could feel dead leaves and acorns
crunch under my feet as I walked
and the mud felt cool and damp
on my skin.
I started to enjoy the textures of
the earth beneath me and feel
more connected with nature.
When it was time to go I looped
back to the path, dusted off my
feet and put my socks and trainers
back on.
I didn’t expect the calmness
I had experienced in the forest to
last once I left but as I sat at home
that evening in my flat in London
I was amazed by how relaxed and
rejuvenated I felt.
The truth is, I felt better in every
way and can’t wait to head to the
forest again to chill out with the
trees.

REFLECT
When you are home look back on the experience
to see if there have been any lasting effects. Were
there any? What was your favourite part? Was it worth
it? Would you like to do it again?

CLEAR SOME TIME
If there is anything that can’t wait on your to-do
list make sure you get it done before you head into
nature or it will distract you and suck up all your
mental energy.
GO YOUR OWN WAY
Walk at your own pace, stop and stroll whenever
you want to. Listen to your body and let your feet
guide you – what are you gravitating towards? How
does your body feel? Take calm and steady breaths.

ITH the Royal
Wedding just a few
weeks away, all eyes
are on the gorgeous
Meghan Markle. From
her glossy blow-dry to
her glowing skin the US actress and
activist, 36, looks every bit the
princess-to-be.
Yet how does the Suits star
achieve her regal style?
We asked the experts how to get
the Meghan Markle sparkle.
FACIAL WORKOUT
Meghan says: “I regularly do facial
exercises, I swear it works – as silly
as you may feel.
“On the days I do it my
cheekbones and jawline are way
more sculpted.”
“You can really tell that Meghan
regularly does facial exercises as her
face is smooth, lifted and defined,”
says face yoga expert Danielle
Collins (faceyogaexpert.com). “She
HANNAH BRITT asks the experts about
the princess-to-be’s beauty secrets
has great tone and definition in her
jaw and cheekbones and smooth
skin around her eyes and on her
forehead.
“Facial exercises are great to use
before a big event or special
occasion as they help with
lymphatic drainage around the
eyes, reducing dark circles and
puffiness, while boosting circulation
to the cheeks and smoothing any
tension from the face.”
KEEP IT BALANCED
Meghan says: “I try to eat vegan
during the week and then have
a little bit more flexibility with
what I dig into on the weekends.
“But at the same time it’s all
about balance. Because I work out
the way I do I don’t ever want to feel
deprived.
“I feel that the second you do that
is when you start to binge on things.
It’s not a diet, it’s lifestyle eating.”
“Meghan chooses to show her
natural beauty to the world, which
is fantastic as it promotes
confidence in women to love the
skin they’re in,” says Vanessa
D’Ambrosio, make-up artist at
Giorgio Armani.
Lydia Sellers, Meghan’s make-up
artist, has said: “Every time I’d do

“I think Meghan has got it right,
focusing on putting the good stuff in
rather than being restrictive. A little
of what you fancy does you good,”
says nutritional therapist Libby
Limon (libbylimon.com).
“Studies show that eating a diet
that is high in fruit and vegetables
– seven plus portions per day – is the
best way to protect your health.
“Whether you include a little meat
and fish in there or not or if you
pack your diet with plants, there
is less room for unhealthy junk
or processed foods, sugar and
saturated fats,” says Libby.

“Get the look by blending the
foundation on the skin starting from
the centre of the face and working
outwards to create a glowing finish,”
says Vanessa.
“You can keep building layers
until you achieve the coverage you
want.”
GLOSSY LOCKS
Meghan says: “I’ll happily use
coconut oil for skin and hair – and
to cook with.”
“Meghan’s hair is a modern take on
a classic look, the cut and colour
work to create a soft natural finish,”
says stylist Kieran Spencer of
blowdry chain Duck & Dry
(duckanddry.com).
“Coconut oil helps to rebuild and
strengthen hair and is also high in
vitamins and minerals to help boost
natural shine.
“It would certainly help Meghan
achieve such a glossy finish.”

1 FAMILY
I love the fact that my family
encompasses so many different
ages and experiences and I really
enjoy getting all the generations
together.
Thankfully my sons don’t live
too far away and my sister and
her children are nearby too.
Michael and I love it when
everyone is here and our
grandchildren are running
around and causing chaos.
There’s something
really special about
having a tight-knit
extended family.

animal lover and after
getting my first dog at
the age of 14 I haven’t
been without one

if I weren’t an actor. Luckily I am
still as passionate as ever about
performing as it always makes me
feel so energised and alive.
However acting can be really
tough, especially for people trying
to get their first break and it is
definitely something you have to
really want to do.
Over the years I’ve done a lot of
theatre and television but if I had
to choose, I probably prefer being
on the stage as it’s a much more
intense experience.

As much as I love my family,

really important to me too.
I have friends I have known for

always a wonderful sense of
continuity when we meet up.
It’s that feeling of being with
people who know you really well
but still having plenty to talk about.
Sitting chatting with girlfriends
over a glass or two of wine is one
of the greatest pleasures in life
and it’s something that
I always look forward to.

A portrait of absurdity
T
HE sleuth who does not
want the case is a
fictional figure almost as
commonplace as the
sleuth who is obsessed
with the case. It is a way
of injecting some tension perhaps
– but a pretty unrealistic one.
People get sick of jobs, give them
up and do them badly but they take
them when they’re offered. This
is especially true of hard-up artists,
like young Mr Hartright, a key
player in The Woman In White
(Sunday, BBC1) who in reality
would not have trudged with a
heavy heart to a massive mansion
in Cumbria to look after a rich
bloke’s paintings and teach his
nieces to draw.
As it happens, though, in this
adaptation of Wilkie Collins’
classic chiller the reluctant artist is
Matt Baylis

weekend’s
TV
the least unbelievable element.
Before leaving London for his new
workplace, Walter Hartright (Ben
Hardy) had a disturbing encounter
with a white-clad young woman
– apparently escaped from the
asylum – who knew the Cumbrian
village he was heading to.
On arrival at the household of the
feeble yet cantankerous Frederick
Fairlie (Charles Dance), Walter
discovered that one of the man’s
nieces bore a striking resemblance
to the woman he had seen. Apart
from that not-especially stunning
coincidence, not a lot happened
for much of the ensuing hour.
Walter lost his heart somewhat
to Laura (Olivia Vinall), the
woman-in-white doppelganger and
the younger of Fairlie’s two nieces.
This was a bad move, because she
turned out to be betrothed to local
toff Sir Percival Glyde (Dougray
Scott). Walter was reminded his
asylum-escaping friend had
mentioned a “man of rank” and,
mysteriously enough, the said
woman in white then popped up,
flitting through the grounds of the
house and the local graveyard
making dire pronouncements.
She said Glyde had locked her
away and if Laura married him she
would suffer. Yet you did not really

Travel: Holidays Unpacked, 8pm, C4
At certain times of year, living
vicariously through presenters of
travel shows is as close as most
viewers at home can get to some
much-needed sunshine. In this
four-part series, Morland Sanders
and Lucy Hedges (left) road test
a selection of up-and-coming travel
destinations, taking us to on-trend
locations on everyday budgets.
Research indicates that Brits spend
an average of £1,000 each on
a week’s summer holiday – but are
we getting value for money from the
tried and tested places we flock to
year after year? The first edition
sees Lucy visit Israel to explore
the desert and float in the Dead
Sea, while Morland samples Costa
Rica’s pristine Pacific beaches.
Travel: Travel Man:
48 Hours On The Cote
d’Azur, 8.30pm, C4
The second half of a

Channel 4 tonight sees
Richard Ayoade end
his current series in
the French Riviera
accompanied by Shazia
Mirza (left). They see Nice
in the best way possible –
by hiring a three-wheeled
car, as well as checking
out Cap Ferrat, blue art,
fancy yachts and a grotto
in Monaco. Later, they
take a pricey helicopter
ride before they end
with a trip to the casino
– hoping to win big.

surrounded the madcap family’s
house, meaning young Gerry’s 13th
birthday party was a locked-in
affair, with the buzzing tensions
outside affecting the mood within.
What with adolescent Gerry (Milo
Parker) in a grump because the
goings-on were too babyish for him
and Spiro (Alexis Georgoulis) sick
with passion for Louisa (Keeley
Hawes), it was at times on the edge
of fine drama. As ever, though, this
Greek play does not seem to know
whether it is tragedy or comedy, so
in the midst of the solid human
stories we had Lugaretzia (Anna
Savva) bothering the doctor about
her intimate rash, a monk on a zip
wire and other distractions.
I sometimes wish writer Simon
Nye would do two versions of each
episode or half an hour of gags
before the grown-up stuff.
DID YOU KNOW? Strasbourg-born Arsene Wenger, 68, will

Sport: Fergie Vs Wenger: The Feud, 10pm, Channel 5
A timely show given Arsene Wenger’s announcement
last Friday that he is leaving Arsenal this summer. No
personal rivalry has dominated English football like
the one between the Gunners manager and former
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson (both
above). From the mid-1990s until the Scot retired in
2013, they became fiercely competitive and this
documentary reveals the depth of feeling that arose.
Royalty: The Real Camilla:
HRH The Duchess Of
Cornwall, 9pm, ITV
The students involved in this immersive living history
series are dropped off in the middle of a remote
part of the Highlands where they develop the skills
needed to survive life in the field. Training in the
very same mountains as 1940s agents, they are
schooled in the exact same techniques that prepared
a group of agents tasked with putting a stop to Hitler’s
atomic ambitions in Norway.
need a ghostly woman in white to
tell you that: a glance at the brutish
Sir Percy would have done it.
Perhaps sensing that none of this
mid-Victorian melodrama was likely
to get 21st-century hearts racing,
the adaptor spliced in lots of “after”
scenes, with people wondering
what had happened to Walter and
referring to a terrible something
without giving away what the
something was. In terms of ramping
up the tension, this device is on a
par with the cop who does not want
the case but does it anyway. Yawn.
Another weapon in the
dramatist’s arsenal is
claustrophobia, as in shutting all
the characters in a room. In
keeping with the Greek origins of
the word and just as fittingly, The
Durrells (Sunday, ITV) took it
to Corfu. A plague of wasps
With contributions from
family members, friends
and the people who
know her best, this
documentary paints
a picture of the woman
who might one day
be our Queen. Amanda
Redman narrates as
we follow a year in the
life of the Duchess of
Cornwall (right).
Cameras capture her
helping decorate the
Christmas tree at
Clarence House, taking
the dogs for a walk
in Scotland and going

RUPERT IN THE FLOODS No 20
They hold the rope ends very tight,
And pull and tug with all their might;
When all is ready Rupert and
Bill tug with all their strength
on one rope, and as the boat
begins to move, the farmhand
hauls on the other to prevent it
coming down too quickly. At
last it is safely landed. Then
comes a shock for Rupert and
Bill. The farmhand looks at the
name on the boat and shouts,
“Why, this belongs to my
brother, it’s my belief you’ve
stolen it.”

This delicious curry is both spicy and mild and works well with either coconut rice or

INGREDIENTS
You’ll get good news from a friend.
One of your nicest qualities is your ability to
rejoice over other people’s good fortune. You
know the Universe is endlessly abundant.
Just because one person is doing well does
not mean your prospects are compromised.
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
Let a friend set you up on a blind
date. You will be delighted by their choice.
It’s easy to talk with someone who shares
your enthusiasms. If you’re already in a
relationship, this is a great time to work
towards a mutual dream.
METHOD
1) In a large bowl, combine the
lamb, onion, garlic, thyme, allspice,
curry powder and the bay leaves.
Mix thoroughly until the lamb is
well covered with the spices and
leave in the fridge to marinate
overnight.
2) Remove the marinated mixture
from the fridge. In a large
saucepan, melt the butter until
just sizzling, then add the lamb
mixture and fry, stirring frequently,
over a medium heat for 10 minutes.
3) Add the stock and chilli flakes,
stir, and bring to the boil.
4) Reduce the heat to a simmer,
then cover and cook for an hour
and a half or until the lamb is
tender.
5) Serve with coconut rice or a
naan bread, if desired. Sprinkle
over the coriander to garnish.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: If you have a greenhouse, live in a mild area and the weather is
kind, you could risk planting tomato plants in growing bags. Outdoor varieties are the best
for growing in unheated greenhouses but during cold spells it pays to insulate the plants.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
Your ideas get an enthusiastic
reception. It’s a great time to make a sales
pitch, give a professional presentation or go
on a job interview. People love your ability to
think outside the box. Instead of repeating
other people’s concepts, think of your own.

the best in you. Take full advantage of all the
restaurants, shops and cultural diversions.

Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Embrace your sensual side. Visiting
a romantic hideaway with your amour will be
revelatory. You’ll realise your priorities are
wrong. Spending time on your relationship
will give you a new lease of life. Minor
aggravations at work won’t annoy you.

project or earn an advanced degree, take
full advantage of this golden opportunity.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
Your powers of communication are
strong. Use them to air a difficult topic with
your romantic or business partner. Contrary
to what you may think, you can change their
mind about an important issue. Explain how
their actions have affected you.
0905 789 3711**
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
Developing a moneymaking idea
will be fun. You have wonderful instincts

Fox promises to cut red tape post-Brexit to boost free trade What the
International Trade Secretary
Dr Liam Fox has pledged to cut
“bureaucracy and red tape” in a bid
to promote free trade post-Brexit.
The staunch Brexiteer has said
that, outside the European Union,
the UK will enjoy “a new degree of
economic agility”.
The comments came ahead of a
speech by Dr Fox to the financial
industry in which he is expected to
say that maintaining the UK’s service offer will be at the forefront of
international trade.
In a speech to leading policymakers as part of City Week in London’s
prestigious Guildhall, he will say:
“Liberalising the trade in services is
at the heart of DIT’s offer to the
finance industry.
“We will work with old allies and
new partners across the world,
utilising the UK’s economic strength
and diplomatic prowess to forge new
trading relationships.
“Ultimately, our task is to remove
the unnecessary regulation, bureaucracy and red tape that inhibit the
free trade in services.”
Dr Fox is also expected to highlight

service sector as the UK economy

++the share hunter++GEORGE SALMON++HARGREAVES LANSDOWN++
Thursday brought first quarter results
from consumer goods giant Unilever.
The group, owner of the Dove,
Hellmann’s and Persil brands, hit the
headlines recently after its decision to
pursue a structure as a single legal entity,
incorporated in Rotterdam.
Rather than abandoning the UK over
any fears around Brexit, that decision was
taken to make corporate life more
straightforward. Maintaining two separate
legal entities is more complex than one,
and it should have more control over
mergers and acquisitions.
First quarter results were broadly as
GEORGE SALMON
expected. After stripping out the effect of

Unilever volumes recover ahead of buyback
cent excluding the soon-to-be sold
spreads business.
Each of its three main business units
delivered growth. It was especially
encouraging to see that growth was led by
increased sales volumes, rather than the
price increases that have characterised
recent updates.
The quarterly dividend rose eight per
cent to 0.3872 euro per share, equal to
33.41p. The group also announced a
share buyback programme of up to six
billion euros, due to start in May. This is to
be funded by the proceeds of the spreads
sale, and should boost earnings per
share, an important measure of profits.
Margins are expanding as cost savings
kick in, and while the group has stressed
it’s facing a more difficult trading
environment in a few developed markets,
that’s nothing new.
Looking longer-term, Unilever appears
to be well-placed.
A multi-billion pound advertising budget
should ramp demand for its products over
time, and the group is plugged in to the
long-term emerging markets growth story.
Economic conditions in emerging
markets can be unpredictable, but
exposure to their growing and increasingly
wealthy customer base should be a
long-term tailwind.
This all means the group is confident of
delivering steady growth. If it can, Unilever
should be able to churn off a steadily
growing dividend. The prospective yield is
currently 3.4 per cent.

SNOOKER: BETFRED WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Daily Express Monday April 23 2018
Salad days are not over for Rocket
RONNIE O’Sullivan
claims a new diet
could see him live to
200 – but he used
up a Crucible life
against
Stephen
Maguire yesterday.
The Rocket produced
a stunning comeback to
win 10-7 after trailing
6-3 in his Betfred World
Championship
firstround clash in Sheffield
to keep his hopes of a
sixth world title alive.
And he looked fresh as
a daisy in the tense final
stages after making diet
as big a priority as the
running he has done for
MAKING A
MEAL OF IT:
O’Sullivan had
to fight back to
beat Maguire

MOORE WILL MISS CLASSIC TO RIDE MENDELSOHNN IN KENTUCKY DERBY
RYAN MOORE is set to miss the
2,000 Guineas at Newmarket on May
5 to ride Mendelssohn for Aidan
O’Brien in the Kentucky Derby on
the same day.
Mendelssohn produced a
sensational performance under
Moore to win the UAE Derby at
Meydan last month and goes to
Louisville with a big chance of
landing one of America’s most iconic
races.
Moore’s presence in America
would leave O’Brien needing to
finalise jockey plans for favourite
Saxon Warrior at Newmarket in the
first colts’ Classic, together with
recent Leopardstown scorer Gustav
Klimt and US Navy Flag.
The Ballydoyle trainer said: “Ryan.

Kentucky Derby and obviously this
horse (Mendelssohn) was coming
along lovely last year.
“He went through the winter well
and his first two runs were lovely, so
the Kentucky Derby is what Ryan is
thinking at the moment. Obviously
things can change but that’s the way
he’s thinking at the moment.”

better

that situation and there is

“We aren’t the healthiest
society in the UK compared
to
China

the
Mediterranean countries. A
lot of people in Britain are
massively obese, a bit like
America.
“I might end up looking
like a stick of celery I am
eating so much of it.
“But it’s the right amount
of carbohydrates, protein
and fats. I was embarrassed
by the way I played in that
first session and I felt I
wanted to give the crowd

Richard
LEWIS
REPORTS
SIR MO FARAH broke
the British record in a
Virgin Money London
Marathon where he kept
his cool but almost lost
his bottle.
Farah finished third in
2hrs 6mins 21secs as Kenya’s
Olympic
champion
Eliud
Kipchoge soared away to win
in 2:04:17 from Ethiopian Tola
Shura Kitata in 2:04:49.
But running the distance for
only the second time, Farah, 35,
found himself at the centre of
two extraordinary incidents at
feeding stations in the opening
half of the race yesterday.
At the first, he picked up the
wrong drink, threw it away and
went back to collect the right
one, and at the second he
collected the wrong bottle
before the right one fell off the
table. In between the two, he
diverted off course in the
leading pack of 10 runners to
wave his arm and speak to the
accompanying motorcyclists to
pass on messages to the
volunteers.
The
London
Marathon
confirmed the drinks were in
the right order and Farah said:
“The
drink
station
was
confusing. The staff were
helpful towards the end but at
the beginning they were trying
to take a picture rather than
saying, ‘Take a drink’.
“I was saying to the people
on motorbikes to tell the staff
to be a bit helpful instead of
taking pictures. I wasn’t
wasting energy, I just needed a
Mo shows
bottle to set
new mark
drink. I had to get that right.”
Arsenal fan Farah added:
“Maybe next time I will get an
Arsenal one. Me and the other
Ethiopian guy’s drink were
exactly the same bottle. When
I was trying to grab my drink I
was grabbing his drink and he
was grabbing mine.”
The drama did
little to sway Farah
off course. While he
could not match
the pace set by
Kipchoge, who went
through the first
half at 61:03 on his
way to a third
London
title,
Britain’s greatest distance
runner did rewrite history in
conditions
reaching
20
degrees.
Steve Jones’s record of
2:07:13 would have been
33 years old in October but as
the
Welshman
himself
predicted, Farah broke it as he
lowered his marathon personal
best from his 2:08:21 in London
four years ago.
As the race, started via a big
red button from The Queen in
Windsor, headed into its second
half around Canary
Wharf, Farah moved
alongside Kipchoge
and Kitata.
That had been his
style on the track,
where he dominated
in winning 17 major
titles. But the roads
are different, and
Kipchoge and Kitata found
another gear. Farah said: “I am
exhausted because the guys
went for it and they were on for
world-record pace. It was do or
die. It is so different to the
Staff were
taking
pictures
track. Different pain – cramp
and heavy legs – and different
training but I have really
enjoyed it. Tick to the British
record, I have a long way to go.”
Farah
will
take
great
encouragement from finishing
in front of Ethiopian legend
Kenenisa Bekele, who was sixth
in 2:08:53, and the defending
champion,
Kenya’s
Daniel
Wanjiru, eighth in 2:10:35.
Defending champion Mary
Keitany went in search of Paula
Radcliffe’s world record of
2:15:25 but her early pace took
its toll and she finished fifth in
the women’s race in 2:24:27, as
fellow Kenyan Vivian Cheruiyot
won in 2:18:31.
David Weir won a thrilling
sprint finish to take the men’s
wheelchair title for an eighth
time in 1:31:15, while Australian
Madison De Rozario won the
women’s race in 1:42:58.
Disunited Dragons spit fire
CATALANS coach Steve
McNamara watched his
players argue amongst
themselves
as
they
stumbled past minnows
York City Knights in a
34-22 win yesterday in
the Challenge Cup.
The Dragons lie rockbottom of Super League
and their deficiencies
were
laid
bare
at
Bootham Crescent.
After Catalans scored
twice through Fouad
Yaha and Jason
Baitieri,
part***
RUGBY LEAGUE
By Ross Heppenstall
timers York hit back to
level with tries from prop
Joe Porter, who works as
a painter and decorator.
Mickael Simon edged
Catalans back in front
before half-time and
second-half scores from
Lucas
Albert,
Jodie
Broughton and Greg
Bird saw Catalans home.
Yet
League
One
promotion-chasers York
fought to the death and
touched down twice in
the second half through
Kieren Moss and Joe
Batchelor.
Asked
about
the
apparent lack of unity in
his side, former England
coach McNamara, left,
said: “That’s where the
team
is
and
it’s
frustrating at the minute
because we know we can
do a lot better.
“There are lots of
things we need to change
at the club but when
you’re not playing as
you’d
like,
your
confidence is down.”
York coach James Ford
said: “You wouldn’t have
thought
there
was
£1.7million between the
sides today in terms of
player wages.”
Hull KR swept past
Oldham 32-0 and Leigh
thumped Championship
rivals London Broncos
40-0. Toronto Wolfpack
edged past Barrow 16-12
and will also be in the hat
for Wednesday’s sixthround draw.

Leinster’s greed
knows no bounds
NEAR THE end of the
latest stunning sequence
in Irish rugby’s dream
season, a chorus of
‘Molly Malone’ began to
swell in the east of the
Aviva Stadium, a Dublin
anthem for a Leinster
party.
It was less cockles and
mussels than knuckles and
muscles as sorry Scarlets were
smashed out of the Champions
Cup in a one-sided semi-final.
Ireland’s Grand Slam has
given way to another Irish
march on Europe at club level,
as Leinster have swept all
before them.
The list of the vanquished
in the Champions Cup this
season extends to the English
champions, the European
champions and now the Pro14
champions.
One more hurdle awaits
them in Bilbao on May 12 and

for the Leinstermen who were
majority
shareholders
in
Ireland’s invincibles, their
desire has not yet been sated.
“It’s human nature, you get
really greedy, you want more,”
said full-back Rob Kearney.
“We’re in a club where we
are surrounded by so many
ambitious, competitive people
and we’re doing really well.
“We’re part of something
really special and winning is
such a great feeling. And the
more you win, the more you
want to win and the more
trophies you get, the greedier
❑
RACING 92 ripped Munster’s defence to shreds with three tries
in the opening 21 minutes to set up a 27-22 win at Stade
Chaban-Delmas and seal their second Champions Cup final outing.
Any thoughts of an all-Irish final soon disappeared as Teddy Thomas
scored twice and made a third for a 24-3 half-time lead as former
Munster lock Donnacha Ryan shone. Munster rallied with tries from
Simon Zebo, Rhys Marshall and Andrew Conway but it was too late.
you get for more. That’s what
builds it. Greed in a nice way.”
Leinster will contest the
final as the most complete side
in Europe, one who can mix it
at short range – their go-to
weapon against an outgunned
Welsh region – or bewitch and
beguile out wide.
They have a granite pack.
Their Aussie back-row Scott
Fardy was man of the match
but it could have been their
other forward tryscorers Cian
Healy or James Ryan, the lock
who cannot lose.
The 21-year-old has now
played 20 games for Leinster
and Ireland and won them all.
With
Robbie
Henshaw
looking like he had never been
away in his comeback 10 weeks
after shoulder reconstruction,
they have a midfield to die for
with Garry Ringrose and
Johnny Sexton either side of
him. Such was Leinster’s
dominance that Sexton was
mothballed after scoring their
fifth try on the hour.
And
they
are
superbly drilled by
Stuart Lancaster,
whose
addition
Sexton cites as
the key factor in
resurrecting the
European
glory
days in Dublin
when Leinster won the title in
2009, 2011 and 2012.
Leo Cullen, the province’s
thoughtful director of rugby,
was captain back then.
“The landscape is completely
different now,” said Cullen.
“We had to go back to the
drawing board. It’s nice to be
back at this stage.
“Knowing what that feels
like makes you want to do it
again and again and again.
The Six Nations has given that
hunger to the group too.”
What sort of Leinster will
pitch up in the Basque
Country? The brutalists or the
beauticians?
They have the full deck to
play with, it is merely a case of
selecting the card they want.
“They’re an exceptional side.
It will be very hard to beat
them,” said Scarlets wing
Leigh Halfpenny.
Sexton has been around
long enough to know there are
no guarantees. “When you
come to a final, anything can
happen. We know that. We’ve
been underdogs before and
won, we’ve been favourites
and lost. You need to be
humble,” he said.
Even so, in this of all
seasons, it is hard to
look
beyond
the
Leinstermen.

Frampton wants to face
Valdez, but if the Mexican

the broken jaw suffered
against Scott Quigg last

champion Lee Selby if
the latter beats Josh

LUTON are built for the

after a decade-long
absence from the third
tier, according to their
manager Nathan Jones.
The Hatters joined
League Two leaders
Accrington in sealing
promotion when Olly
Lee struck to claim a 1-1
draw at Carlisle.
Jones said: “We are
back where we belong
and it would have been a
travesty if we had not
been able to do it
automatically.”
Chesterfield’s second
straight relegation was
all but confirmed by a
4-1 defeat at the hands
of a Forest Green side
edging ever closer to
survival.
Jack Lester, whose
Spireites are nine points
from safety, said: “It’s a
really dark day for the
club, bitterly
disappointing.”
There were strong
words from boss Phil
Brown after his Swindon
side’s play-off prospects
were dashed by a 1-0
defeat to Grimsby.
“People are playing for
contracts and I have got
a lot of decisions to
make,” said Brown.

ANNAN ATH (1) ..... 3 STIRLING (1) ......1
LIVERPOOL will begin their
bid to reach the Champions
League final tomorrow with
Jurgen Klopp’s side joint
second-favourites to lift the
trophy at 9-2, just behind
Real Madrid at 2-1.
The Reds are coming up
against Roma, who are 8-1
to win the competition.
Liverpool are 8-15 to get
off to winning ways at
Anfield, with Roma 9-2 and
the draw 17-5.
On Wednesday night,
Bayern Munich are 21-20
to win at home to Real
Madrid, with the defending
champions 23-10 and the
draw 13-5. Zinedine
Zidane’s men are 8-11 to
reach a third successive
final with Bayern evens.
In the Europa League,
Arsenal face Atletico
Madrid, who are the 5-4
favourites to win the
competition. But
Thursday’s first leg is now
set against the backdrop of
the impending departure of
Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal would likely need
a positive result at the
Emirates to have any hope
of qualifying for the final
and they are 7-5 to take a
lead to Madrid.
In the other semi-final,
Marseille are 8-13 to win
the first leg against Red
Bull Salzburg.

Title canter
is kid’s stuff
for Douglas
FATHER-TO-BE Barry
Douglas helped Wolves
to the Championship
title in style – now he is
hoping the midwife can
produce an equally
smooth delivery.
The Wolves defender
and model wife Debbie
are expecting their first
child this summer,
which would put the
gloss on a stunning
first year at Molineux.
Douglas started the
title party with the first
goal in an emphatic
victory over struggling
Bolton and said: “It’s
been an incredible
couple of months.
“Achieving
promotion to the
Premier League as
champions is the stuff
kids dream of, but that
was the ambition I had
coming here.
“And the baby due in
the summer will top
everything off. It’s our
first and that will be
the biggest
achievement of this
season I think.”

Poznan, although
Douglas says being
crowned champions in
his first season at
Wolves means more.
“At Lech we went to
the town square and
there were close to
100,000 fans there,”
said the 28-year-old.
“They’re very
passionate over there
and I’m sure
Wolverhampton will be
full as well when we get
to celebrate with the
fans.
“This just pips it a
wee bit because of
what’s at stake. To be
able to ply our trade in
the Premier League is
special.”
Benik Afobe, Diogo
Jota and Conor
Coady’s penalty sealed
an emphatic win for
Wolves, which left
Bolton two points
above the drop zone.
The Trotters face an
anxious trip to Burton
and veteran
midfielder Karl
Henry is
urging his
team-mates
to hold their
nerve.
“You
need calm
heads and
people
that have
been
there
before,
which
we’ve
certainly
got at
Bolton,” he
said. “It is
clear to see
everyone is
pulling in the
same direction
and are
determined to
make sure
we’re a
Championship
club again
next season.”

PAINFUL: Bent,
right, equalises
for Burton and
Coleman, inset,
shows the strain
DARREN BENT can
remember the good
times. The days when
the Stadium of Light
was bouncing and he was
banging in the goals.
The
former
Sunderland
striker’s fall from grace has
been almost as dramatic as
that of his former club. In the
past five years he has scored
fewer goals than he notched in
just 18 months on Wearside.
Yet everyone knew the twist
in this red-and-white tail
of misery, pain and
mistakes would
come. And so it
did, after 86
minutes,
when Burton
substitute
Bent levelled
the first-half
opener from
Paddy McNair.
It sparked a
frantic
and
painful finale for
Chris Coleman’s side.
Moments later John O’Shea’s
header hit the bar, then two
minutes into injury-time Liam
Boyce bagged the winner.
At the last, another McNair
effort was ruled out amid
chaos, confusion, rancour –
and ultimately relegation.
Boyce’s
winner
threw
Burton a lifeline and sealed
Sunderland’s fate.
Bent is a hate figure in these
parts after quitting them in
acrimonious
circumstances
seven years ago, but despite
the boos and insults hurled at
him, the Black Cats’ demise
saddens him.
“If it was going to be us or
them relegated, of course I’d
prefer it to be them, but
Sunderland is a fantastic club
and I still have incredible
memories of playing the best
football of my career here,” he
said.
“Of course I have sympathy.
I may get a bad reception but
this is a special place and I
appreciated every moment I
was here.
“To think this football club
with this stadium is now in
League One. That is scary.”
Bent’s words will offer little
comfort
to
long-suffering
Mackems. Nor will those of
Burton’s manager, Sunderlandborn Nigel Clough, who
unintentionally twisted the
knife by revealing what might
have been at his famous father
Brian’s former club.
“Dad spoke unbelievably
affectionately about the club,”
said Clough. “There were a
Bent finds
old club’s
fate scary
couple of opportunities over
the years of him coming back
here and he talked about what
a great thing it would be to
manage them. He didn’t talk
about many other clubs like
that.”
Coleman does not have a
clue what the future holds. He
wants to stay on, but with the
debt-ridden club up for sale
and owner Ellis Short having
washed his hands of it, both
Sunderland and their manager
are in limbo. “The problem is
we don’t know who the owner is
going to be and that puts doubt
into everyone’s mind,” said
Coleman, who has yet to speak
with Short, let alone meet him.
“At the minute, he does not
want a lot to do with us. He
wants out. I do not know the
guy so it’s very difficult to say
how I feel about him.
“In 15 years as a manager,
I’ve had huge arguments with
chairmen. That’s normal. But
to have no conversation with
him at all is bizarre.”

“We’ve dug in when

“God only knows

GOALS GALORE:
Sterling gets in
on the act
By Richard Tanner
PEP GUARDIOLA’S classy
champions underlined the
Premier League title is not
enough – now they want all
the records to go with it.
The Manchester City boss said
before the game he would look at
their last five fixtures of the season
for an indication as to how his
players will respond next season.
On this evidence, he need not
worry.
City looked just as hungry as
they have been all season as they
swept aside Swansea with a
five-star display yesterday and, in
doing so, moved closer to setting
new best marks for points, wins
and goals in a season.
It left Swans manager Carlos
Carvalhal saying they are “from
another planet”.
City made light of leading-scorer
Sergio Aguero’s absence to share
the goals around, David Silva,
Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne
– with a 25-yard screamer –
Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus
all getting on the scoresheet.
They now have 90 points and
need six more to beat Chelsea’s
record of 95.
They have 29 wins and need
two more to beat Chelsea’s record
of 30.
They have 98 goals and need six
more to beat Chelsea’s 103.
When you consider their final
four home games are against
teams in the bottom eight and
they have scored three or more
goals in 19 of their 34 league
games, there is every chance they
will do it.
The ever-demanding Guardiola
was delighted his team kept their
foot on the pedal.
“The performance was the
important thing but if the numbers
of points, wins and goals help to
keep the players focused, then
that’s good,” he said. “In football,
you always have to improve, it’s
never a finished business. In my
experience, you can drop off after
Pep’s shooting for moon
even though title is won
the title has been won, so it will be
good to finish with a good feeling
and prepare for next season in a
good mood.
“I had no doubts they would
perform because Mikel Arteta told
me before the game they did an
amazing warm-up.”
De Bruyne was pipped by Mo
Salah for the PFA award last night
and while Guardiola congratulated
the Liverpool striker, he believes
the Belgian deserved it.
“From my point of view when
you are analysing 10 months, there
is no player better than Kevin,” he
said. “Maybe there are numbers
better but for me he was the best.”
The only mar on the day for City
was that their fans invaded the
pitch at the end in celebration,
with a flare being let off.
No one was hurt, there were no
ugly scenes, but the club are likely
to earn a rap from the FA.
Guardiola refused to condemn
the
fans,
saying:
“It is
an emotional game. I understand
you have to be careful but they
wanted to share how happy they
are and that is the most beautiful
thing.
“You can live like a professional
player – just arriving with the bus,
the people looking at us and
celebrating in the stadium. I’m
not going to say to anyone else,
‘Don’t enjoy it’. Just save the grass
because we need the good pitch
for the future.”
City were two-up at the break
thanks to strikes from David
Silva and Sterling, his
23rd goal of the season.
They added three in
the second half and
such was their
dominance that
it could have
been 10. De
Bruyne’s
long-range strike was easily
the pick of the goals, while
Bernardo Silva’s was a followup after Jesus’s penalty had
been tipped on to the post by
Lukasz Fabianski. Jesus made
amends with a looping header
from Yaya Toure’s pass.
The defeat leaves Swansea
four points above the drop
zone with four games left,
including a vital home game
against
fellow
strugglers
Southampton.
Asked if this heavy defeat will
dent their confidence, Swans
boss Carvalhal was emphatic.
“Zero chance,” he said. “My
assistant told me this is the 14th
time this season that City have
won by more than three goals, so
they are from another planet.
The level that they play is very
high.”

League semi-final first leg at
home to Roma, saying such
showpiece occasions have
arrived earlier than expected
following his January move
from Southampton.
“I was hoping for this, but it
has been like a rollercoaster,”
said Van Dijk, who was injured
and then frozen out in his final
months with the Saints. “I
keep playing week in, week
out, and it goes so fast.
“2018 is not that bad,
whereas 2017 was a nightmare
because of the injury.”
Irrespective
of
events
tomorrow, this has already
been a dream week for Danny
Ings while Mohamed Salah is
enjoying an ongoing fairytale.
Ings opened the scoring on
Saturday with his first goal
since October 2015. Salah,
meanwhile, has taken less than
a year to cement his place
among Anfield royalty and his
31st league goal saw him equal
the best tally in a 38-game
Premier League season.
After Ings poked home and
Salah chipped Ben Foster, it
seemed Liverpool would enjoy
a stress-free tune-up for Roma.
But West Brom had other
ideas, with Jake Livermore
giving them hope on 79
minutes
before
Salomon
Rondon powered home a
header with two minutes left.
Chris Brunt, who crossed for
the leveller, said: “It’s going to
be a big summer for everybody
and a tough one for some
people at board level. People
will come and go and it’s up to
us to make sure we get the
right ones in to try to push in

Zaha was again at the

being booked after

But Townsend says
Zaha is no cheat – and is

“I don’t remember a

“When you’re running

caught off balance.
“Wilf is probably the
most naturally talented
player I’ve ever played
with. He’s incredible at
manipulating the ball.
“If he can keep doing
that from now until the
end of the season, he’ll

IF ARSENAL’S fans
are not going to get
emotional about it, why
should anybody else?
The first date on Arsene
Wenger’s farewell tour showed
just how much damage has
been done by the vanity of
this extra season in charge.
It is a terrible indictment of
the
short-sightedness
of
modern football fans that the
first convincing chant of
“There’s only one Arsene
Wenger” did not come until
the game was in injury-time
and West Ham were beaten.
The cry finally rang out, did
a couple of rounds, and then
the majority of fans grabbed
their coats and bags and
streamed towards the exit
long before Wenger could
acknowledge them back, as is
his custom, once the final
whistle has blown.
But if that was bad, worse
still were the banks of empty
seats in the upper two tiers,
broken up by the pockets of
fans who, having been the
proud possessors of tickets
for the first home
game after their
manager for two
decades
had
announced
his
intention to leave,
actually bothered
to come and say
Fans’ adieu
has such a
hollow ring
goodbye. Farewell? At best,
this was fair-to-middling.
Lacklustre, unfeeling and
much less than Wenger
deserves.
The reasons for the modernday ambivalence were spelled
out for all to see as soon as
Wenger
handed
in
his
teamsheet.
He had always said his
ambition was to the leave the
club in a better place than
when he arrived. Yet he
selected for his first game in
1996 Seaman, Dixon, Bould,
Adams, Keown, Winterburn,
Platt, Vieira, Merson, Wright,
Hartson (Bergkamp injured).
Now here he was, with one
eye on Thursday’s Europa
League
semi-final
against Atletico Madrid,
submitting
those
lesser names below. And for
the first half, Arsenal were
decidedly average, as they have
been too often this term. West
Ham, still looking for a couple
more points to make their
safety a bit more comfortable,
had the best chances.
Even though a reinvigorated
Arsenal display in the second
half paid immediate dividends
when Nacho Monreal swept in
a corner, West Ham’s equaliser
through Marko Arnautovic’s
well-placed shot was no less
than the Hammers deserved.
Joe Hart made a couple
of spectacular saves
from Granit Xhaka
and Danny Welbeck
which looked great,
but he would have
been disappointed
to concede. In the
end, Declan Rice ducked under
Aaron Ramsey’s hopeful cross
and the ball flew straight in.
Alexandre Lacazette’s late
double was just window
dressing as the Arsenal
fans finally found
their voice.
That was a
late, churlish
recognition
that there are
still a few
good times to
be had under
Wenger. It also
hammered
home the fact
that Wenger, who
could have happily
been open-top-bussed
into history after the FA Cup
win, has now outstayed his
welcome in too many minds

around the Emirates. That
seems a shame, although West
Ham manager David Moyes,
who found out after following
Sir
Alex
Ferguson
at
Manchester United in 2013
how hard it is to replace an
institution, feels Wenger should
not take it that personally.
“Maybe you are not getting
that in many grounds any
more,” he said. “Maybe the
new stadiums have something
to do with it. I thought the
news this week was going to
make things harder but as we
got into the game I thought
we have got a chance here.
And for 81 minutes or so either
team could have won.
“A young player made a
huge mistake and I hope he
learns from it because he has
huge potential. But that really
flattened the team.
“When I took over United
they were champions but with
older players. But Arsenal are
not champions and have some
younger players, so there are
not so many expectations.
Anybody being offered the job
should be taking it with both
hands.”
for that. So I feel that if my
personality is in the way of
what I think our club is, that
is more important than me
staying. The fans were not
happy and I can understand
that and I have to live with
that and I can accept that.
“But my job is not to select
the next manager. I always
feel that the most important
thing in a club is that
everybody does his job.
“My job is to take care of
the team, the results, of the
finances of the transfers,
and that’s what I did. Could
I do that elsewhere in the
Premier League? At the
moment it is difficult for me
to say but at the minute I
speak to you, I am too
attached to this club.
“If you speak about
emotions that will certainly
be emotionally difficult.
I don’t know how well I will
manage without that.”
Wenger was in a relaxed
mood after a late double
from Alex Lacazette rather
flattered Arsenal in the win
over the Hammers.
When asked about what
sort of man could replace
him, he said: “You take me
and then you take a guy who
is much stronger in every
strong point I have. That
would be the perfect guy.”
Wenger also claimed that
having seen so many kind
words written about him in
the past few days was like
being at his own funeral –
but that will not deter his
players from giving him a
send-off of their own.
“It’s really tough to take
for the group of lads,” said
midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
“He’s believed in us
and given us all these
opportunities
over
the
years. He brought me here
as a 17 year old, I owe him a
lot. He deserves all the
plaudits he gets.
“Hopefully we can
finish
off
the
season on a high.
“We’re
not
thinking
about
who’s coming in
next – it’s about doing
it for him. Winning the
Europa League would be a
perfect send-off for him.”

ALEXIS SANCHEZ struggled
to produce a sample for the
Wembley dope testers – then
explained why Manchester
United have had to wait to see
the best of him.
The Chile striker was the last player
to emerge from a stadium he must
wish he could play in every week.
Sanchez had underlined the old
sporting maxim that while form is
temporary, class is permanent.
A stunning headed goal and an
assist for Ander Herrera’s winner
represented
his
most
telling
contribution since his January move
from Arsenal and justified Jose
Mourinho’s decision to select him
ahead of Marcus Rashford and
Anthony Martial.
Sanchez promised United fans they
will see the best of him next season
when he says the club must “win
everything”.
“The change has been very, very
difficult for me,” he said. “I arrived at
a big club and I changed everything
from before.
“The coach told me he doesn’t like
to sign players in January and it
would take time for me to become
accustomed to the new players.
“He just tried to help me improve.
He told me to attack and defend and
enjoy the matches.
“I demand a lot from myself every
match, every day. Now I’m very happy
for the team, for the goal and for the
attitude we showed in this game.
“It will give me confidence. My
team-mates always help me but I
hope to demonstrate my qualities
more. I hope we can go on and win
the FA Cup but next season we have
to try to win everything.”
Sanchez and Paul Pogba did not
appear to be on the same wavelength
in some of their early games together
but produced a devastating
combination for

had
threatened
to build on

Eriksen for that goal by winning the
ball off Mousa Dembele, then floating
the perfect cross towards the far
post for Sanchez to steer a clever
header past Michel Vorm.
That made it eight goals in six
games at Wembley for Sanchez.
“Playing here brings me a lot of
luck,” he added. “I scored with
the national team against
England, with Arsenal
and now United.
“It was a really good
pass from Pogba. I
was thinking first of
heading to the near
post but then I saw
the keeper go that
way so I changed
my mind.”

of a new deal. He is banking on
his current players to evolve.
“We’re going to invest the
basic to improve our squad,”
he said. “We need to find a
replacement for Carrick and
for Fellaini, if he leaves. And
there’s always in a squad a
player or a couple of players
who are not playing a lot and
will try to leave. So we will
them to an eighth successive semifinal defeat.
While Sanchez revealed he had sent
Arsene Wenger a message of thanks,
describing him as “a gentleman and a
great coach”, he clearly feels working
with Mourinho will bring him the big
prizes he craves.
“He’s a manager who has won
everything and when we don’t win,
when we don’t play well, he gets very
angry,” he said. “You need
to be demanding like that
to be successful. At halftime he said we must play
as a team, everyone must
attack and defend, and
that if we all ran and
worked hard we’d win.”
Chris Smalling saluted
the key roles played by
Sanchez and Pogba. “There’s a lot of
expectation here you don’t get at
other clubs,” he said. “It takes big
players to step up in big games and
they did.”
This was the sort of all-round team
display Mourinho has been demanding
on a consistent basis. Smalling and

spend, spend, spend we believe
in the evolution of our players.
“Can we improve next
season? Let’s try. Whether
Manchester City keep this level

But if they’re going to invest

have, it will be difficult for all
of us. In this moment, I don’t

Phil Jones showed why they remain

contribution in midfield, while Jesse
Lingard displayed his character by
battling on despite rough treatment
from England colleagues Alli and Eric
Dier, who were booked for raking their

pretty, but Mourinho showed Mauricio

And despite saying he
was not at his best at

captain insists his dip is
not down to his fitness
after his hasty return
from an ankle injury.
Kane’s bigger concern
is how Spurs can step
up to the plate in the
games that matter.
“There’s obviously a
reason why we’re falling
short in the semi-finals
or in the big games. We
have to do better,” he
said. “It’s frustrating,
but we have to find our
way round it.
“I wouldn’t say it’s a
mental block but it’s
annoying. We weren’t
good enough.
“We’ve been close, but
obviously we weren’t
good enough in the final
minutes. So that’s the
harsh lesson we have to
learn.”
Kane says Spurs must
pick themselves up
quickly to ensure a

one is going to hurt,

“It has been a tough

“But we’ve still got a
job to do, we’ve still got
to try to secure that
Champions League spot
– that’s massive for the
club, going into next

As for his form and
fitness, Kane, who was

Gareth Southgate, said:
“The ankle feels fine. I
feel good and I feel

MAME DIOUF’S horror
miss left Stoke on the
brink of relegation, with
boss Paul Lambert
admitting his side need
maximum points from
their final three games if
they are to survive.
Jack Butland’s heroics
in the home goal
counted for little as
Diouf spurned a glorious
chance to add to Badou
Ndiaye’s early opener.
Ashley Barnes
bundled home the
equaliser for Europebound Burnley to rub
salt into the wounds of
Diouf and Lambert, who
has now won just one of
his 12 games in charge.
“We got off to the
perfect start and looked
great and then the big
moment – Mame’s
chance – was huge for
us,” said Lambert. “He
hasn’t taken the chance
but I can’t fault him for
effort and commitment.”
The Potters head for
Anfield on Saturday and
Lambert thinks anything
short of victory will end
lingering survival hopes.
“Until somebody tells
us that mathematically
we can’t do it then we
never give up,” he said.
“We have to go to
Anfield and get a result,
then play Palace and get
a result and then go to
Swansea and get a
result. We have to win.”
Had Butland not
made three excellent
saves, Burnley would
have levelled earlier, but
eventually another fine
stop presented Barnes
with a scruffy tap-in.
“Stoke gave a good
account of themselves
and we were slightly off
it,” said Burnley
manager Sean Dyche.
“We had to raise a few
things but the second
half was a good
performance and we
were worthy of a draw.”

Former Arsenal striker shines
to keep Conte in hunt for silver
JUST up the road, his old
manager was beginning his
long farewell to English
football after two decades of
changing the way we think
about the game.
At Wembley, Olivier Giroud, one of
old master Arsene Wenger’s best
pupils, was showing Chelsea just how
much they should thank him for
crossing London in January to say
hello and join the cause.
The France striker, a spearhead for
Wenger at Arsenal, has been a
revelation at Chelsea since they
snapped up the 31-year-old for a
bargain £18million.
It took Giroud a while to get into the
team, but since the Frenchman
elbowed his way past the misfiring,
sulking Alvaro Morata, he has scored
three goals in his last three games and
revitalised a flagging side with his
sheer enthusiasm, desire and knowhow.
It was Giroud’s crucial, brilliant goal
yesterday, 29 seconds into the second
half, that finally broke Southampton’s
stubborn resistance and earned
Chelsea an FA Cup final appearance
against Manchester United and their
old manager Jose Mourinho on May
19. It also gave Antonio Conte a last
shot at silverware before, as seems
certain, he departs the club this
summer – as well as another tangle
with his arch-enemy Mourinho. There
is no love lost between the pair, and for
both it will be win or bust.
To round things off for Chelsea in an
oddly low-key semi-final, Morata came
on as a substitute to nod in the second
late on. Saints battled hard, but
missed their chances, while Willy
Caballero’s brilliant save from Nathan
Redmond when they were just a goal
down was a crucial point, as was
referee Martin Atkinson mistakenly
awarding a foul on the Argentinian
when he fumbled the ball into the net
under Charlie Austin’s challenge.
Not much went right yesterday for
the Saints, initially set up by Mark
Hughes to frustrate. And when they
went behind, even though Austin hit a
post late on, they simply did not have
enough to turn it around.
Now it is back to the grim grind
against relegation for a team who have
won only one of their last 21 league
games, and lie four points from safety
with four games left. Bournemouth at
home next Saturday is arguably a
more important game for them than
yesterday’s adventure.
Giroud led the line superbly.
Remarkably, he is now unbeaten in 10
club games at Wembley. Conte had
wanted experienced back-up for
Morata and had looked at players like
West Ham’s Andy Carroll, Burnley’s
Ashley Barnes and even Peter Crouch
of Stoke. Giroud is fast turning out to
be a most astute choice.
Physically stronger than Morata and
just as good in the air, Giroud is more
capable of holding the ball up and
allowing players like Eden Hazard to
flourish around him.
But perhaps his most important
attribute, as he showed when he came
on with Chelsea two goals down
against Saints in the league game a
week ago and turned the match with
his sheer gusto, is his will to win.
Chelsea opened brightly yesterday as
Hazard shot over and Willian hit the
bar, Southampton sitting deep and
defending with determination.
But they cracked within seconds of
the second half starting, as Cesc
Fabregas thumped a long ball upfield,
Hazard laid it off, and Giroud picked
the ball up, slalomed past two
defenders, and poked his shot past
Alex McCarthy.
Saints had barely threatened before
then, but suddenly Austin’s dummy
put Shane Long clear, only for the
Irishman to miscontrol and blow the
chance. Then came Caballero’s save,
followed by his lucky escape from
Austin’s challenge.
Giroud went off, on came Morata,
and with eight minutes left Cesar
Azpilicueta crossed and the Spaniard
had way too much space to nod down
and in at the far post.
At the final whistle, there was
Giroud, exhausted, shirt draped
around his shoulders, waving to the
crowd as the Chelsea fans sang his
name. Not something you would have
imagined back in August.
DOWN IN THE MOUTH: Southampton players look dejected after the final whistle
CHELSEA (3-4-3): Caballero 6; Azpilicueta 7, Cahill 7,

“I have great respect for United’s story, for

I think, for Chelsea’s story and my story.”
Giroud, who won the cup three times with
Arsenal, said: “My goal looked like a slalom?
Good – my second passion is skiing! I just
tried to dribble and I had a bit of luck.
“I told the players I really want them to

Southampton were fuming when Chelsea
keeper Willy Caballero appeared to fumble the

referee Martin Atkinson to award a foul.
Saints manager Mark Hughes said: “If ever
there was a situation for VAR, I’d have thought
that was the opportunity. It was a matchdefining moment. We needed a bit of luck.”
SAM ALLARDYCE has
buried the hatchet
with his long-time rival
Rafa Benitez.
The Everton boss
goes up against the
Newcastle manager
again tonight when the
sides meet at Goodison
Park.
The pair never shied
away from their rivalry
when Benitez was in
charge at Liverpool
and Allardyce at
Bolton, with Allardyce
writing in his
autobiography that the
2005 Champions
League win had “nowt
to do with” the then
Reds boss.
“That’s water under
the bridge and 15
goddamn years ago
when he just got here
and I was winding up
anyone I could – and it
worked well at times,”
said Allardyce.
“That doesn’t
happen now, I wouldn’t
go back to
that – I’m too
long in the
tooth and
mature for
it.”
Allardyce
has four
games left to
convince
Everton’s top
brass he can take the
club forward beyond
the summer.
He faces a tough task
with fans also showing
their anger in recent
away games, but now
back at Goodison he
still holds hopes of
winning them over.
The former England
boss said: “You win
fans over by winning
football matches and
winning them in style.
“You can only do
what you do and work
as hard as you possibly
can with the squad and
the players. You have
to deliver what you
can. That has been a
difficult challenge.
“We have managed to
overcome the chaos.

spoke to the players. It
helped have a positive
effect.
“Where we have gone
from there, I consider
it my contribution,
which is 30 points from
21 games, rather than
13 games, 12 points.”
Benitez has worked
his own miracle this
season but has told
owner Mike Ashley not
to expect them from
him every season.
In two years, Benitez
has led the Magpies to
promotion and Premier
League safety. Victory
at Goodison would see
them leapfrog Everton
into ninth place.
Benitez, however,
fears he will not be able
to deliver another
season like this one
unless the
club’s
transfer
policy
changes. And
he believes
investment is
required for
Newcastle to
have any
chance of
moving up a level.
“I cannot do miracles
every year,” said
Benitez, who takes
charge of his 100th
Toon game tonight. “If
we finish in the top 10,
it will be massive when
you consider the
resources we had.
“If we had finished
above 17th, it would
have been a success.
“I am a manager who
wants to win and we
have to change things
if we want to improve.
You have to have the
tools to be sure that
you can do your job.
“My objective is not
to finish ninth, it is to
win titles and cups.
“We’ve done a lot of
things right but can we
improve? Yes. When I
see our managing
director Lee Charnley,
we talk about what we
have to do in a
different way so they
know where we are.”

MOMAHED SALAH has been
crowned the PFA Player of the

The Egyptian swapped Roma
for Liverpool last summer in a
£34.3million deal. It has certainly
proven money well spent and
Salah’s 31 league goals to date
brought recognition from his
peers last night.
The 25-year-old, left, saw off

Leroy Sane – crowned
Young Player of the Year – and

stars on the shortlist, with
Manchester United goalkeeper
David De Gea and Tottenham’s

Salah came out on top after one
of the greatest debut campaigns
in Liverpool history, with a
