Netanyahu: Iran’s nuclear
deal based entirely on lies
ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu last night accused Iran of
secretly building nuclear weapons.
In 2015, Iran agreed to curb its
nuclear energy programme in
exchange for sanctions being lifted.
But Mr Netanyahu accused Tehran
of “brazenly lying” and claimed Israel
has top secret information from Iran’s
alleged “atomic archives” that prove
it continued to develop weapons.
He said on TV 55,000 pages of
evidence and 55,000 files obtained by
Israeli intelligence provided “new and
conclusive proof of the secret nuclear
weapons programme that Iran has
been hiding for years from the
international community”.
Mr Netanyahu has fought against
the Iranian nuclear deal ever since it
was signed, branding it “a bad

mistake of historic proportions”. He
also said he was sure US President
Donald Trump – who has threatened
to withdraw from the Iran deal –
would “do the right thing” when
reviewing the agreement.
In the past, Israel has claimed it
would do whatever is necessary to
stop Iran from establishing a military
front against Syria.
Mr Netanyahu’s speech followed
missile strikes in Syria which hit
military bases used by Iran on
Sunday, killing at least 16 people.
No country has so far claimed to be
responsible but suspicion has fallen
on Israel, which has accused Iran of
using the war in Syria as a cover to
build a military infrastructure.

REMAIN-BACKING peers were last
night accused of seeking to “stop Brexit
altogether”, after inflicting a heavy
defeat on ministers over vital EU departure legislation.
In a major setback for Theresa May’s
plans, the House of Lords voted 335 to
244 in favour of giving Parliament powers to block a “no-deal” exit – the Government’s seventh defeat on a series of
amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill,
which seeks to lay the legal foundation
for quitting the bloc.
Ministers vowed to try to scrap the
change with a new Commons vote after

MICHEL Barnier yesterday denied
trying to use Northern Ireland for
Brexit “revenge” on the UK as he
visited the Irish border.
The EU’s chief negotiator got a
cold welcome from Northern
Ireland Democratic Unionist Party
leader Arlene Foster who said he
did not understand Ulster’s
“wider unionist culture”.
Mr Barnier wants Britain to
accept a solution where Northern
Ireland joins Ireland and the EU in
a customs union and effectively
breaks off with the rest of the UK.
The DUP and leading Tories
have branded the land grab
“unacceptable” while Theresa
May has said no British Prime
Minister would ever agree to it.
The visit was part of a wider
push by Brussels to force the UK
to stay tied to EU rule in a form of
customs union which would mean
Britain would have no control
over its trade policy.
But Ms Foster, who backs
Brexit, suggested that Mr Barnier
did not “respect” the unionist
position for the future of Northern
Ireland and was not acting as an
“honest broker” during talks.

What does Queen watch on the
royal box? The Crown of course
Her Majesty likes to tune into
the Netflix royal drama The
Crown, according to her
granddaughter Eugenie, right
THE Queen is a big fan of hit television
drama The Crown, according to one
of its stars.
Vanessa Kirby, who played Princess
Margaret in the first two series of
the Netflix drama, said a friend had
overheard Princess Eugenie saying
her granny enjoyed the series.
In an interview with the June issue
of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Kirby,
30, said: “A friend of mine was at a
party and didn’t know anyone, so he
sidled up to this group who were
talking about The Crown.
“One girl said, ‘Well, my granny
watches it and really likes it’. It slowly
dawned on him that the girl was
Eugenie and her granny was the
Queen.” She added: “We’ve heard
that Philip doesn’t watch it – he can’t

be bothered.” It is understood the
Earl and Countess of Wessex, Prince
Edward and his wife Sophie, first got
the Queen interested in the drama,
which tells the story of her reign.
Last year a royal source said:
“Edward and Sophie love The
Crown. It has been a long-standing
arrangement that they drive to
Windsor at the weekend to join the
Queen for an informal supper while
watching TV or a film.
“They have a Netflix account and
urged her to watch it with them.
“Happily, she really liked it,
although obviously there were some
depictions of events that she found
too heavily dramatised.” Eugenie too
has enjoyed watching the series,
which stars Claire Foy and Matt
Smith as the monarch and the Duke
of Edinburgh in the early years
of her reign.
In an interview last year, Eugenie,
28, said: “It is filmed beautifully. The
music is wonderful and the story is
beautiful. You feel proud to watch it.”
The Queen, who often watches
television with her personal assistant
Angela Kelly, is said to be a fan of
Doctor Who, Midsomer Murders, The
X Factor, Countryfile, Downton
Abbey, EastEnders, Pointless, and
classic comedy series such as Keeping
Up Appearances and Last Of The
Summer Wine. In 2013 the British
Academy of Film and Television Arts
gave her a special Bafta award to
recognise her support.
At
a
Buckingham
Palace
reception for the dramatic arts
in 2014, she told British film
director Steve McQueen, who was
behind the hit movie 12 Years A
Slave, that she kept the trophy on
top of her television.
Kirby will be replaced by
Helena Bonham Carter, 51, as
Margaret in the third series
of The Crown, which covers
1964 to 1976.
Olivia Colman, 44, and
Tobias Menzies, 44 will take
on the roles of the Queen
and Philip.

Prison approved... Ready Brek
PRISONERS have become fed up of
doing porridge in one of Britain’s
jails – after bosses outlawed their
favourite breakfast oats.
Inmates at HMS Parc have been
told porridge is off the menu as it
has been declared a security risk.
Officials at the Category B jail in
Bridgend, south Wales, are said to
have raised concerns it could be
used by crafty lags to “block up”
door locks.
The popular oats cereal was
immortalised by the BBC prison
sitcom Porridge, starring Ronnie
Barker and Richard Beckinsale in
the 1970s.
Now furious prisoners have said
9p;Xm`[G`c[`kZ_
the new ruling would be enough to
make Norman Stanley Fletcher
[Barker’s character] go stir crazy.
Writing in the May edition of
prisoners’ magazine Inside Time,
inmate Stephen Bruno said: “Here at
Parc we have been told that we
cannot purchase porridge from the
canteen as it is a security risk.
“They claim it could be used to
block up door locks.”
He said prisoners can still buy
Ready Brek, which is less thick and
lumpy, from the canteen tuck shop.
Mr Bruno added: “Porridge was
served in prison for over a century,
hence doing time in prison was
known as ‘doing a bit of porridge’,
so it seems incredible that they will
not serve it for breakfast here for the
same reasons.
“Instead we get chocolate covered
rice crisps – how crazy is this rule?”
A former prisoner at the
2,000-capacity prison which is run
by G4S said: “It seems doing a bit
of porridge is now doing a bit of
Ready Brek – Ronnie Barker would
be turning in his grave.”
Janet Wallsgrove, Director of HM
Prison Parc confirmed that porridge
was “not available in the prison
shop”. She said: “Ready Brek is on
offer for prisoners to buy.”
Porridge has been a staple of prison life

CAMPAIGNERS reacted furiously
last night after a carer who beat a
widowed Parkinson’s sufferer in a
shocking example of elderly abuse
escaped a jail sentence.
In the latest case of the elderly
being targeted for abuse, Alijicia
Sadeghi-Taghiabad hit defenceless
Brian Chandler on two occasions at
a care home last March.
But after being convicted of
assault she was ordered to carry out
just 150 hours of unpaid work and
pay £1,035 compensation.
The case comes just days after TV
campaigner Dame Esther Rantzen,
77, backed a Daily Express call for
justice ministers to make elder
abuse an aggravated offence so
courts can impose tough sentences
on those who exploit the helpless.
The attacks on Mr Chandler, 73,
took place at Callands Care Home
in Warrington, Cheshire, before a
whistle-blower alerted his family.
Sadeghi-Taghiabad, 33, was convicted after a two-day trial at
Warrington magistrates court.
John Banasko, defending, said: “It
is a pity as her heart was in that profession. Now she may never be able
to help vulnerable others again.”
Mr Banasko said the home was
understaffed and Sadeghi-Taghiabad would have to “rush around” to
perform duties. He added: “This is
no excuse for how she acted, but [it]
could have been avoided.
“She took the decisions initiated
by management in good grace and

DAME Esther Rantzen has
backed the Daily Express
campaign to protect the elderly.
The former That’s Life!
presenter supports calls to make
elder abuse a hate crime,
enabling courts to impose tough
sentences on criminals who
exploit the vulnerable.
Abuse can be anything
from physical or sexual
assault, harassment,
theft, fraud, threats
or neglect.

she dealt with him.”

Dame Esther, 77, who set up
Britain’s first free 24-hour
helpline for vulnerable OAPs
called The Silver Line, said:
“When I hear of the elderly being
abused, it makes me despair.
“The courts should
recognise their extra
vulnerability and crimes
against them should
be treated very
seriously indeed.

achieve tougher

lands was ordered to improve after
inspectors found a staff shortage led
to residents looking “unkempt”, and
some did not have basic needs met.
The home had an unannounced
inspection by the Care Quality Commission last March – the same month
Mr Chandler was attacked – and was
later issued with a warning after the
commission found four breaches of
health and social care regulations.
A spokesman for owner HC One
said: “Providing residents with kind
and quality care is at the heart of
everything we do. We are working
closely with the CQC and the
relevant authorities to ensure that
improvements are made across the
home as soon as possible.”
Caroline Abrahams, of Age UK,
said: “We need a zero-tolerance
approach, whether the abuse is
physical or mental cruelty, financial
manipulation, theft or neglect.
“Care homes have a moral and
professional duty of care to some of
the most vulnerable members of our
society which they have a responsibility to uphold at all times.
“It is down to the leaders of care
homes to set the right tone and
create a culture in which poor care,
neglect and abuse are totally unacceptable and in which staff have
the confidence to whistle-blow if
something bad happens, safe in
the knowledge that they will be supported and firm action will be taken
against the perpetrators as a result.
“We would encourage anyone who
suspects an older person is at risk to
contact their social services department or the police without delay.”
Around a million older people
are victims of physical, financial,
psychological and sexual abuse each
year but campaigners say because
age is not a strand of hate crime,
prosecutors are unable to apply for
tougher sentences.

A CHIEF executive at Age Concern
stole £725,000 from the charity’s
funds to boost his £72,000 a year
salary, a court heard yesterday.
John Briers is alleged to have
paid 60 charity cheques into his
bank account, awarded himself 12
unauthorised bonuses and 19
additional pension contributions.
The 57-year-old denies fraud
from January 2007 to August 2015
when he was the chief executive
officer at Age Concern South
Tyneside based in South Shields.
A jury at Newcastle Crown Court
was told Briers was suspended
from his job when a finance
manager noticed a document for
one of the payments he had made
was littered with mistakes.
Investigators later found during

a search of Briers’ office templates
of blank invoices for firms the
charity had worked.
Anthony Dunne, prosecuting,
told the court: “The defendant is
charge with three offences of
fraud by abuse of position.
“The case against him is he
dishonestly used that position to
fraudulently pay to himself large
amounts of Age Concern’s money.
“He made most of those
payments simply by writing out
cheques to himself.
“He then covered his tracks by
pretending that those fraudulent
payments were either payments to
companies who had supplied
goods and services to Age
Concern or bonus payments
approved by the charity’s board
of trustees or special payments,
also agreed by the board, or a
sub-committee of the board.
“The defendant created false
documents to explain those
fraudulent payments.”
D`jkXb\j
Mr Dunne said Briers was
caught out because one of the
documents he created “contained
obvious mistakes” leading to the
finance manager to raise the
alarm. It was then discovered that
£725,000 had vanished from the
charity’s accounts.
The court heard the money was
taken from the two parts of the
organisation, one being the
charity, where he was chief
executive, and the other was the
trading company, of which he was
employed as secretary.
It is alleged Briers pocketed
£433,236 through the writing of
fraudulent cheques, paid himself
£105,560 in bonuses, and that he
used £169,703 of the charity’s cash
to top-up his pension.
Mr Dunne told the court Briers
used fake invoices and fraudulent
minutes of board meetings to
cover his tracks. When he was
arrested Briers, of Gateshead,
made no comment during the
police interview. He later claimed
payments were diverted to his
account so he could pay suppliers
in cash. The trial continues.

A TERMINALLY-ill cancer patient’s
wife has blasted Health Secretary
Jeremy Hunt over their NHS wait by
urging him to sort “his s***” out.
In a no-holds barred Facebook
post Becky Wilkinson, from Stafford,
slammed Mr Hunt after her husband
Steve was forced to wait 16 hours for
a hospital bed.
She had begged medics to help
him after he went an entire day without eating as food and even drinking
were making him violently ill.
But while they waited for hours,
they watched frustrated as “minor
injury after minor injury” came in
and received treatment at Royal
Stoke Hospital.
In a social media rant now seen by
hundreds of people, Mrs Wilkinson
said it was not because medics
did not want to treat him but “they
simply couldn’t”.
In the end following their
extremely long wait her husband
was finally admitted to a ward for
treatment.
She wrote on Facebook: “If I
treated my dog the way my husband
has been treated I would be banned
from looking after animals for life.
“Jeremy Hunt, sort your s*** out
(sorry Mum). Let those doctors and

nurses who so desperately want to
help and care do their jobs.
“Smiles go a long way, but without
a well-resourced hospital with open
beds and enough staff it doesn’t ease
the suffering of those fighting for the
life they have left.”
Last night a Department of Health
and Social Care spokesman told the
Daily Express: “We know it can be
really distressing for patients and
their relatives to have to wait a long
time, and it is right that the Trust
has apologised to Mr Wilkinson and
his family.
“Demand on our NHS continues
to grow, and staff have never worked
harder.
“That is not only why NHS funding is at record levels, but also why
the Prime Minister and Health and
Social Care Secretary have committed to a long term plan with a
sustainable multi-year settlement
for the NHS.”
Mrs Wilkinson’s post comes after
Mr Hunt warned following the “most
challenging” winter for many years
that there was “no doubt” about the
NHS’s struggles.
Frontline doctors, nurses and
paramedics have been begging
for extra funding to help the continuing crisis.
Mr Wilkinson received his terminal diagnosis on February 22 but
had recently been left in pain after
chemotherapy.
His Macmillan nurse revealed
he had ascites, an abnormal buildup of fluid in the abdomen caused
by the cancer.
His ordeal began on Sunday, April
22, when he stopped eating at about
6pm.
A Macmillan nurse reassured the
family that they should not worry as
it would only take a few hours on the
Monday to get a hospital bed. At
9am, the nurse rang ahead to the
Royal Stoke Hospital, run by University Hospitals of North Midlands
NHS Trust (UHNM) to be told there
would be a bed by noon.
At 2pm Mr Wilkinson, who has a
seven-year-old son, was finally called
in by consultants, which suggested
a bed would become available soon.
He arrived shortly after 3pm, was
assessed at 4.30pm but then told
“there are very few senior doctors”
to help him.
Nearly five hours later, Mrs Wilkinson revealed her husband saw a
“lovely doctor”, who apologised for
his agonising wait but said until they
could find him a bed they could do
nothing for him.
It was not until 1am – 16 hours
after the initial phone call – that Mr
Wilkinson was finally given a
bed.Mrs Wilkinson later
said of her NHS experience: “Today has
quite possibly been
one of the worst days
of my life.
“Until today, we
have spoken highly of
treatment we’ve had
from
community
nurses, GP and Macmillan – they’ve all
been great.
“The acute hospital,
Becky Wilkinson
sent an angry
message to
Jeremy Hunt
I’m afraid, has not been so. The
people who work in Royal Stoke
have been amazing.
“I have felt their pain as they
have looked at us and looked
away as they don’t have the
resources to do their job.
“We sat for hours, to the
point I ended up crying and
begging them to help my
husband – no-one came.
“Not because they didn’t
want to but because they
simply couldn’t.”
In a later Facebook update
Mrs
Wilkinson
added:
“UHNM have been to
talk to us and
really listened
to why we
were so upset on Monday. If only
there could be 24/7 nursing for the
oncology unit – perhaps food for
thought in the budget?”
Yesterday Liz Rix, chief nurse for
the UHNM NHS Trust, said that
they had since apologised to the
Wilkinsons.
She said: “Clinicians have been in
regular contact with Mr Wilkinson
and his family.
“Our
services
can
become
extremely busy and in some
instances patients will then have to
wait in A&E for a bed to become
available.
“We know A&E is not the best
environment for cancer patients. We
met with and apologised to Mr
Wilkinson and his family.”

NEW Home Secretary Sajid Javid
vowed last night to do “whatever it
takes” to end the Windrush scandal.
Theresa May put the senior Tory,
the son of a Pakistan-born bus
driver, in charge of the Home Office
in a bold move to put an end to the
row over the status of thousands of
migrants.
Mr Javid’s surprise promotion
yesterday, following the resignation
of Amber Rudd on Sunday night,
made him the first ethnic minority
member to hold one of Britain’s
great offices of state.
Within hours, he made settling
the migration status of the Windrush migrants and their descendants his personal mission, telling
MPs: “I will do whatever it takes to
put it right.”
Mr Javid said: “Learning about
the difficulties Windrush migrants
have faced over the years has
impacted me greatly, particularly
because I myself am a secondgeneration migrant.
“Like the Caribbean Windrush
generation, my parents came to
this country from the Commonwealth in the 1960s. They too came
to help rebuild this country and
offer all that they had.
Javid, May, Osborne and Cameron show off Tory ‘power stance’
Gifdfk`fe
“So when I heard that people
who were long-standing pillars
of their community were being
impacted for simply not having the
right documents to prove their
legal status in the UK, I thought
that it could be my mum, my
brother, my uncle, or even me.”
Mr Javid’s promotion from the
Department for Communities took
many MPs by surprise as Mrs May
was understood to have been
planning to sack him a year ago.
He survived only when the
general election flop dashed her
hopes of filling her Cabinet with
loyal allies.
One minister said most thought
the Home Secretary job “would go
to one of Mrs May’s protegees”.
Mrs May brought back James
Brokenshire, who quit the Government last year to concentrate on
his successful battle against lung
cancer, to fill Mr Javid’s former job.
Ms Rudd’s extra equalities role
went to International Development
Secretary Penny Mordaunt.
Mrs May was forced into the
whirlwind changes after Ms Rudd
resigned, admitting she had “inadvertently” misled MPs over targets
for removing illegal migrants.
Defending her own Home Office
record, the Prime Minister said:
“Yes, there were targets in terms of
removing people from the country
who were here illegally.
“If you talk to members of the
public they want to ensure that we
are dealing with people who are
here illegally.”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn
said Ms Rudd had been used as a
“human shield” to protect Mrs
May’s reputation.

ON his first day as Home
Secretary, Sajid Javid struck an
all too familiar pose.
He did his best impression of
the infamous Tory “power
stance”, standing awkwardly
for photographers with his
legs too far apart.
It has become an
increasingly odd tradition
from leading Conservative
politicians dating back
to 2015.
George Osborne
invented the stance
that year when he
posed for photographers after
a speech at the Conservative
Party conference in Manchester.
It quickly caught on with
future Prime Minister Theresa
May giving it her best go at the
very same conference.
Soon enough, the craze began
to get out of hand.
Michael Gove adopted the
stance during an interview with
the BBC in 2016 then, just
months later, then Prime
Minister David Cameron was
seen doing it during a live TV
debate over the referendum.
Humble start to a stellar career
SAJID Javid has truly achieved
stellar success after a proud but
modest start in life.
A self-made multi-millionaire,
Javid’s promotion yesterday became
his fourth Cabinet post in three
years.
His parents came from Pakistan in
1961 and he has told how as a
child, pictured, he acted as
interpreter for his mother
until she learned English.
Just this weekend, Mr
Javid, 48, revealed the
Windrush scandal, which
sank his predecessor Amber
Rudd, had made him think:
“That could be my mum, my
dad, me.” He was born one of
9p8c`jfeC`kkc\
;\glkpGfc`k`ZXc<[`kfi
five sons in Rochdale, where his
father was a cotton mill workerturned-bus driver, who later moved
the family to Bristol to run a clothes
shop.The future MP attended state
school and later became the
first in his family to attend
university, studying
Economics and Politics at
Exeter.
His glittering early
career earned him a
reported £20million as a
City high-flyer, before
leaving in 2009 “to give
something back through
politics.” He was elected MP for
Bromsgrove in Worcestershire in
2010. The then Chancellor George
Osborne was a mentor and made
him a Treasury minister in 2012.
In 2014 he joined David Cameron’s
Cabinet as Culture Secretary and he
became Business Secretary in 2015.
During the 2016 EU referendum
he disappointed Eurosceptics by
campaigning for Remain.
But he has since won plaudits for
Tweeting against Donald Trump
and for attacking Jeremy Corbyn
about anti-Semitism in Labour
ranks.
Allies will now want him to
maintain his newly displayed
passion in this tricky new job.
LABOUR’S attempt to
exploit Amber Rudd’s
resignation descended
into farce yesterday
when Diane Abbott
refused to say whether
the party would deport
illegal immigrants.
In a toe-curling live TV
interview, the shadow
home secretary declined
to set out the opposition
stance on border control.
Her stonewalling on
ITV’s Good Morning
Britain sparked a clash
with host Piers Morgan.
Ms Abbott said Labour
did not support Foreign
Secretary Boris
Johnson’s idea of an
amnesty for illegal
migrants who had no
criminal record and lived
in the UK for 10 years.
But she insisted it was
“not Labour’s position”
that up to a million
people illegally in the UK
should be made to leave.
JgXk
Ms Abbott said she
was working on making
border controls “fairer
and more efficient”.
She added: “The
immigration and
nationality department is
not fit for purpose. That’s
why these issues have
arisen. I don’t blame the
staff, it is a department
that needs reviewing and
reorganising and the
right level of support.”
The pair continued
their spat later on Twitter,
with Ms Abbott saying
that viewers would judge
whether Mr Morgan was
trying to trap her.
Morgan said he was
not, and accused her of
failing to give “a straight
factual answer to this
fundamental question”.
Tory MP Andrew
Bridgen said: “Diane
Abbott’s refusal to say
whether she would ever
deport anyone who was
here illegally exposes the
fact that Labour has an
open-door immigration
policy.”
Brokenshire back at top table after battling cancer
James Brokenshire MP
THE return of James Brokenshire to
Cabinet brings a close ally of Theresa
May back much sooner than either
could have expected.
The popular MP stepped down
as Northern Ireland Secretary on
January 8, the day after his 50th
birthday, to undergo cancer treatment.
Just a month after surgery on his
right lung, the father-of-three returned
to Parliament, crediting early diagnosis
for saving his life.
He has since called for better cancer
screening and more radical therapies,
condemning the “stigma” surrounding
9p8c`jfeC`kkc\
lung cancer, which often affects nonsmokers like himself.
Mr Brokenshire was born in the
Essex town of Southend-on-Sea. After
reading law at Exeter University he
went on to become a partner at
international legal firm Jones Day.
He entered Parliament in 2005 as MP
for Hornchurch, then won Sir Edward
Heath’s former seat of Old Bexley and
Sidcup in 2010.
Later that year, then Opposition
leader David Cameron made him
shadow minister for crime reduction
before Mr Brokenshire served under
Theresa May at the Home Office as
minister for crime prevention.
In 2014, as immigration minister, he
was praised for his role in the talks that
secured the deportation of Islamist
cleric Abu Qatada in 2013.
Mr Brokenshire attained Cabinet
rank in 2016 when new Prime Minister
Mrs May made him Ulster Secretary.
Yesterday, he was back at the top
table as head of Ministry of Housing,
Communities and Local Government.
Issues he inherits include rehoming
survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire,
ensuring the safe recladding of similar
buildings, and tackling the country’s
chronic housing shortage.
Mr Brokenshire yesterday told MPs
of some helpful past experience: “In
some ways, local government is in my
blood as my father was a former chief
executive of a local council, so some of
the debates about local councils were
ones that I had as a boy.”
The revelation prompted Speaker
John Bercow to comment wryly: “It
sounds like meal times at Chez
Brokenshire were enormous fun.”

Another bleak plot
on the Street with
a shocking suicide

CORONATION Street is to highlight the issue of male suicide in a
hard-hitting storyline which sees
factory boss Aidan Connor take his
own life.
In heartbreaking scenes to be
screened next week, viewers will
witness Johnny Connor’s devastation as he discovers his son’s lifeless
body in the bathroom of his flat.
The dramatic story comes as the
show faces mounting criticism over
its increasingly “dark” plots.
In recent months viewers have
seen David Platt drugged and raped
by a male “friend” and vicar Billy
Mayhew hooked on heroin.
Both Pat Phelan’s murderous
exploits and Bethany Platt’s sexual
exploitation stories generated hundreds of complaints to broadcasting
regulator Ofcom.
But outgoing producer Kate
Oates yesterday defended the latest
storyline. She said: “Suicide is the
biggest killer of men under 45 in this
country. With 84 men taking their
lives each week, we quite simply
can’t afford to not talk about it.
=Xd`cp
“Aidan’s story is designed to give
people who hide their feelings of
desperation a chance to start a
conversation, letting someone know
what they’re going through.
“We want to assure anyone who
feels suicidal that there is always
someone who wants to listen,
whether a friend, family member or
one of the brilliant charities we have
been working with.
“We want to tell people that
however bleak they are feeling, there
is always another way.”
Viewers will last see Aidan on
screen on Monday, May 7, when he
visits former girlfriend Eva Price at
the cottage where she is living after
giving birth to their baby Susie.
He then attends a family party at
the Rovers Return. His final
emotional scene sees him in tears
back at his flat alone. No element of
the suicide will be shown on screen.
Johnny makes the devastating
discovery at the beginning of an
hour-long episode on May 9.
Actor Shayne Ward, who has
played Aidan for the past three

AIDAN Connor’s death is
not the first time suicide has
featured on the cobbles.
In fact, the first storyline
featuring an attempted
suicide led to scenes being
axed before screening.
In 1963 factory worker
Sheila Birtles downed a
bottle of pills after her lover
dumped her.
But when news of the
storyline leaked out viewers
complained and worried
bosses hastily cut the
scenes before they were
screened.
The nation was shocked
when Ken Barlow’s second
wife Janet took her own life
in 1977.
Having parted from Ken
she began a relationship
with Vince Denton but when
that failed she turned up on
Ken’s doorstep.
But after he refused a
reconciliation, Janet took an
overdose of sleeping pills.
Katy Harris was wracked
with remorse after killing
her father Tommy with a
wrench because he wrecked
her relationship with Martin
Platt in 2005.
Unable to live with her
feelings she wrote a suicide
note admitting her guilt,
before drinking water mixed
with sugar – a deadly
solution because of her
diabetes.
The Street’s grim serial
killer plot featured Richard
Hillman who, after his reign
of terror, drove his car into
the canal.
The show won praise for
its controversial right-to-die
storyline in 2014 when
Hayley Cropper decided to
end her own life after
unsuccessfully battling
pancreatic cancer.
Her husband Roy, who
disapproved of her decision,
was nevertheless at her side
as she passed away after
drinking a cocktail of drugs.
Janet Barlow split from Ken
Katy Harris had killer drink
Richard Hillman drowned
Hayley had right-to-die story
Shayne Ward as Aidan Connor in Coronation Street’s heartbreaking suicide storyline
years, said he was honoured to have
been trusted with the story.
He said: “Aidan is an ‘everyman’
figure, he is someone men can
identify with, which is important in
telling this story. We hope anyone
who
recognises
something
of
themselves in Aidan, will realise they
can talk about how they’re feeling.
“Talking could have helped Aidan
turn his life around. It could have
brought him relief from what he
was going through. Suicide is a very
permanent response to what are
usually temporary problems.”
Shayne, the writers and produc-
tion team worked closely with
charities the Samaritans and CALM
to ensure the story was handled
sensitively and realistically.
It was announced last month that
producer Kate Oates would be
leaving after three years at the helm.
During that time the show has seen
increased audience figures and won
praise for tackling important social
issues, but it has also come under
fire for featuring bleak and violent
stories pre-watershed.
But Simon Gunning, chief of the
charity CALM, which campaigns
to reduce the suicide rate among
men praised the show’s latest
storyline. He said: “Three in every
four suicides are male.
“Working with Coronation Street
has allowed us to engage a huge
audience in the devastating effect of
suicide, while providing a platform
to highlight the help that is available
for those in need of support.”
A media adviser from the Samaritans said the charity felt it was
important to become involved.
She said: “We were really pleased
that Coronation Street got in touch
with us right at the start to work
with us on the storyline. They got in
touch before anything was written
because they felt it was really
important to tell this story for all the
right reasons and they knew it was
important to work with experts.
“What Coronation Street have
done is built in lots of important,
helpful messages, showing the
devastation that’s caused to families and the complexity of suicide.
“The message that comes out of
the episodes is that if you are struggling you need to talk about it.”

:FDD<EK
WE began discussing the idea of
having a male suicide storyline at a
Coronation Street story conference
over a year ago.
Initially the subject was met with
what I’d describe as well-intentioned
anxiety. Everyone agreed it was an
important story… but was it one we
wanted to tackle?
Over the next hours, as more and
more of us shared our own
experiences with suicide, it was
clear there was no one sitting at the
table whose life had not been
affected by it.
It was then I realised the biggest
thing holding me back from telling
the story was fear.
Fear of getting it wrong; of
upsetting people; of criticism and a
B8K<F8K<J
:fifeXk`feJki\\kgif[lZ\i
fear of hurting people through our
message being misunderstood.
In turn, this took me back to the
training I underwent when I worked
on a helpline.
Volunteers were taught to ask
every caller, even if they’d dialled
the wrong number and just wanted a
pizza, if they felt suicidal.
This was because people can be
so afraid of talking about suicide,
that just asking the question
outright can often give someone the
unexpected chance to start talking
about how they feel.
And this is key: if we can get
people to talk about their feelings,
we might be able to save lives.
I understand some viewers may
feel they don’t want this subject
brought into their home, or worry
how they’ll discuss it with their kids,
and one of the reasons we’re talking
about it a week in advance is to give
people the choice over whether to
watch or not.
But if this was a “regular” disease,
claiming more than 80 lives each
week as it does, I can’t help thinking
we wouldn’t stop talking about it.
We’d be hammering on the doors
of politicians, lobbying for a cure for
this epidemic, fearing someone we
loved might be next. Corrie has a
powerful voice, and it’s my belief
that if we can contribute to positive
change, we should.
Aidan Connor is a handsome,
successful man. He’s loved. He has
his whole life ahead of him. But
recent, tragic, real-life cases prove
suicide does not discriminate –
regardless of age, wealth, physical
health, relationships or gender.
I hope those who choose to watch
next week seek help if they need it,
or recognise if someone close to
them is in need of some support.
And I hope they watch the final
scene of Jonathan Harvey’s
episode, and see we are trying to
give hope, not take it away.

Those pink ‘chick
lit’ covers make
me see red – Jojo
9pDXibI\pefc[j
READERS are needlessly put
off women writers because of
glitzy “chick lit” covers, a leading author said yesterday.
Me Before You novelist
Jojo Moyes says the cliched
designs of women’s books were
stopping potential readers
from picking up stories they
might otherwise have enjoyed.
She said: “Supermarkets
wanted things that are easily
categorised, but people don’t
want to read something pink
and glittery.
“My favourite covers are just
words on the front in very nice
fonts with just a tiny image and
it’s no coincidence that I have
a lot more male readers who
aren’t being put off.”
Publishers tend to design
books so readers think they
know what they are getting
before they even read a word.
But Ms Moyes, 48, said she
did not want her books or
those by other women writers
to be judged so superficially.
“So many women who write
about quite difficult issues are
‘Cliched’ covers hated by Jojo
lumped under the ‘chick lit’
umbrella,” she said. “It’s so
reductive and disappointing. It
puts off readers who might
otherwise enjoy them.”
The former journalist said
she had been “lucky to get a
wider audience”.
But she wished books would
now be presented in a different
way, adding: “If it was up
to me, we would all discover
things in a huge massive
jumble. The boundaries are
being blurred with women
writing domestic noir and
thrillers. I want to see covers
that are a bit more gender
neutral.” The Me Before You
series follows the life of a working-class girl who ends up as a
carer for a wealthy banker
paralysed after a motorcycle
accident.
She said: “Me Before You
was really a story about two
polar opposites colliding and
gradually changing each other’s points of view.”
The first book was made into
a film in 2016, starring Emilia
Clarke and Sam Claflin.
The book series has just seen
its third and final instalment,
Still Me. Ms Moyes said rather
than being judged by a cover,
books should be about whether
it actually entertains.
“I just try to tell a story which
will maybe make people feel
something, and perhaps think
a little too. Ultimately, fiction
is entertainment and no matter how beautifully or thoughtfully done, it succeeds or fails
based on whether people are
entertained,” she said.

FOOTBALL ace David Beckham
has gone for a header with
his latest tattoo... and it is out of
this world.
His latest inking, which is above
his left ear, is of the planets in the
solar system.
The former England and Manchester United star, 42, showed it
off during his trip to Macau in
China on Sunday.
Speaking about his tattoos,
which add up to more than 40, he
said: “They’re about the important people in my life who I want
to have with me always.”
Many of his inkings have been
the work of Mark Mahoney at his
Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Los Angeles.
He said of Beckham’s latest
design: “It’s as if he’s at one with
the universe when he’s getting
tattooed. He is very tough.”
Mahoney, who also counts actor
Johnny Depp and singer Lady
Gaga among his clientele, added:
Beckham shows off tattoo on Sunday
9pDXibI\pefc[j
“I’ve a handful of people who will
get tattooed all the time, but not
as much as David. He is the only
one who doesn’t feel pain.
“He sits amazing and is the
ideal customer. He makes for
good conversation. He has great
skin but he gets it in the sun too
much. He can take the longest
session I’ve ever done.”
The father-of-four, who is married to former Spice Girl, Victoria,
had his first tattoo after the birth
of his oldest son, Brooklyn in
1999. He had his name etched on
his back in classic Gothic script.
In 2000, he had a guardian angel
inked in the middle of his back.
The design’s idea was the angel
would watch over Brooklyn’s
name. In the same year, he
pledged his devotion to Victoria
with a tattoo of her name in Hindi
script. Experts later pointed out
the tribute was misspelt. After
the birth of their second son
Romeo in 2002, he added his
name above the guardian angel.
He also had his number 7 football shirt number tattooed on his
inner arm in Roman numerals.
In 2003, he had the words “So
that I love and cherish” tattooed
on his left arm in Latin and on his
right “Spiritual perfection”.
Later that year, he celebrated
his move to Real Madrid by having the cross inked on his back.
His other tattoos include Jesus
being carried by three cherubs,
believed to represent him and his
three sons, and a woman in a forest on his chest.
Another image of Jesus above
his ribcage is based on the painting The Man Of Sorrows by Matthew R. Brooks. It is believed to
be a tribute to his grandfather
Joe, who passed away in 2009,
aged 83. A figure tattooed on his
hand was from a drawing by his
daughter Harper, six.
;f\jk_\jkXie\\[kfcXpf]]k_\e\\[c\6
I AM all for body art
but I think that perhaps
David Beckham’s
newest addition might
be a tattoo too far.
His body may be a
canvas but I draw the
line at doodling on
your scalp. Beckham
now has more than 40
inkings but perhaps he
should have stopped
at 39.
Artful drawings on
arms, legs and torsos
are fine by me, I myself
have four. They can be
covered up as skin
sags or if you should

change your mind.
However, above the
neck and in full sight is
another matter.
One could argue that
Beckham could cover
it by letting his hair
grow over the solar
system design but
what if it thins and half
the galaxy ends up on
show?

SPACE is a common
theme for tattoos, so
I’m sure it will become
much more of a trend
now since Becks has
adorned his body with
the solar system.
Personally, I think
this should have been
much bigger – space is
huge, of course, and
the planets look teeny

David Beckham
already has a very

why this wouldn’t fit in

themes. I’m all for
people getting tattoos
of whatever makes
them happy – I’ve

The list is endless.
I think most people
will agree whatever
Becks gets inked will
look cool and start a
new craze.

Shoppers could be checking out cheaper food after the merger
THE £12BILLION mega-merger of
Asda and Sainsbury’s could spark a
supermarket price war.
Britain’s competition watchdog
yesterday confirmed it will examine
the deal amid concerns over store
closures and job losses.
Bosses at the grocery giants initially
insisted no stores would close as a
result of the deal, but later said
regulatory authorities could force
them to offload outlets as part of a
competition probe.
The merger would see the business
overtake Tesco to become the UK’s
biggest retailer.
Last night, food and grocery
suppliers warned that promises to cut
prices by 10 per cent could mean
farmers and other suppliers find their
profit margins squeezed.
James Brown, head of the Retail &
Consumer Goods practice at pricing
specialists Simon-Kucher, said: “Asda
and Sainsbury’s have huge buying
power that already provides them
with rock-bottom supplier prices.
“The prospect of this merger will
send a huge chill up and down the
whole supermarket supply chain.
“Current suppliers will be braced
for demands for further price cuts
that many will not be able to deliver.
;Xe^\i
“Could this merger lead to reduced
prices for shoppers? A few, maybe.
But lower prices from better deals in
the mid and long term? It’s unlikely.”
Phil Stocker, chief executive of the
National Sheep Association, said:
“This
loss
of
competition
in
the marketplace and an increased
imbalance in the supply chain cannot
be in the interests of food producers,
nor in my mind of society at large.
“If we end up putting pressure on
the bulk of our sheep farming families
and businesses, we will end up with a
very different countryside and rural
community – and the danger is that it
won’t be noticed until it is lost.”
Shoppers outside a Sainsbury’s
branch in London yesterday welcomed
the prospect of cheaper grocery bills
but many were sceptical.
Ryan Heaganey, 24, a swimming
teacher, said: “If it lowers prices,
that’s good for customers. But will it
happen in the long run?”
Consultant Roger Anglin, 54, said:
“I don’t think the merger is about
food, I think it’s about clothing, that
sort of stuff. Sainsbury’s is trying to
take advantage of the non-food
market that Asda is really strong on.”
And William Peck, 74, added:
SAINSBURY’S and Asda are
planning a deal to transform the
supermarket sector. The proposed
merger has been borne out of a
tough trading environment, thanks
to price competition from the
discounters Aldi and Lidl.
Supermarkets have had to adjust
to changing consumer behaviour
as more of us shop online instead
of in-store, casting doubt on the
economics of operating a wide
network of large outlets.
There are benefits from the two
supermarkets uniting, particularly
when it comes to combined buying
power, and that of Asda’s owner
Walmart, which should result in
lower prices for customers and
higher margins for the business.
Together Sainsbury’s and Asda
have greater power to negotiate
down wholesale prices, but they
also offer access to more shelf
space and customer numbers.
Suppliers could reach an
accommodation with the new
group which is beneficial for all.
The stance of the Competition
and Markets Authority will be
9FJJ@EKM9CLE;<I
SAINSBURY’S boss Mike Coupe
was forced to apologise last
night after singing “We’re In The
Money” amid the supermarket
giant’s merger with rival Asda.
Mr Coupe was filmed
humming along to the famous
tune as he waited to be
interviewed by ITV News.
Sainsbury’s shares rocketed
by 20 per cent as unions warned
thousands of jobs are at risk.
In a statement, Mr Coupe said
it was an “unguarded moment”.
He added: “It was an
unfortunate choice of song from
the musical 42nd Street which I
saw last year. I apologise if I
have offended anyone.”
When asked by Channel 4
News if he personally will be in
the money, Mr Coupe admitted
he was “a big shareholder in
Sainsbury’s”.
“Whenever you merge two companies,
the first thing they do is cut back on
human resources, on personnel, on
equipment. I’m not sure whether
that’s a good thing.”
Retail experts say Asda would take
the fight to Lidl and Aldi while
Sainsbury’s could undercut premium
food retailers like M&S and Waitrose.
With a combined income of at least
£500,000 from online deliveries each
week, it would also hope to see off
Amazon’s new food service.
A consolidation of the supermarket
sector from the Big Four of Tesco,
Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons to
the Big Three would not usually be
expected to spur on competition.
But in this case, talk of a price war has
not gone away.
Budget supermarket brands Lidl
and Aldi are still performing strongly

crucial. Sainsbury’s is confident
the proposal will get through any
investigation. The combined
business will have roughly the
same market share as Tesco, in a
sector diluted by the discounters.
The two supermarkets also
expect to be able to lower prices,
suggesting everyday items may
fall 10 per cent. The commissioner
would have to find an awful lot of
consumer detriment which offsets
that benefit to block the deal.
Sainsbury’s, Asda, and Argos
working together, with Walmart
chipping in too, would be a pretty
powerful combination.
And consumers can expect
lower prices. Other supermarkets
will not be relishing the prospect
of another price war.

while Tesco has emerged with
renewed strength following the
Booker merger, and the impending
threat of Amazon is still there.
The merger will see the new retail
giant employ 330,000 staff with a
combined revenue of £51billion. But
many believe the company will
have to sell hundreds of stores to get
past the Competition and Markets
Authority.
Research group Edison believes
at least 70 of Asda’s 700 stores could
shut because they are within a mile
of a Sainsbury’s supermarket.
As a result of the planned merger,
Sainsbury’s share price jumped
20 per cent yesterday to its highest
level since 2014 while Tesco and
Morrisons saw falls.
The CMA has said it will have
discussions with both Asda and
Sainsbury’s “to ensure they are
supplying the information it will
require before a formal investigation
can begin” over the coming weeks.
The initial “phase one” review
could take up to 40 working days
and will see the deal assessed for the
potential to reduce competition and
choice for shoppers.
It is likely to be referred for further
investigation, taking 24 weeks.
Business
minister
Andrew
Griffiths yesterday told MPs that he
and Business Secretary Greg Clark

and would hold further meetings

He added that ministers would be
monitoring the impact of the merger
on suppliers “very closely”.

F ALL the great offices of state,
that of home secretary is the one
that proves, time and again, to be
the most difficult for the
incumbent to hold on to. Home
secretaries tend to come and go with
almost monotonous regularity. One of
Theresa May’s standout achievements
was that she managed to remain in that
job for longer than most.
That same tenacity seems to be
serving her fairly well in her current
position too. She constantly confounds
expectations through sheer
doggedness.
But Amber Rudd has been forced to
resign because she was economical with
the truth about Government targets.
She is gone and now we have Sajid
Javid. The son of a Pakistani
immigrant bus driver, he is the first
member of an ethnic minority to hold
a great office of state.
He is undoubtedly impressive. His
brilliant career in banking sets him
apart from politicians who have had no
prior experience of life outside the
Westminster bubble. And his ethnic
background gives him an advantage in
dealing with the fallout of the Windrush
scandal which has recast the Tories as
cruel and uncaring.
If anyone can prevent them from
again being dubbed the “nasty party”
then it is him.
He must be open and he must act
decisively to sort out this mess which
has ruined the lives of many decent,
law-abiding British citizens who came
to this country in the hope of a fair and
better life, who uphold British values
and have been terribly badly treated.
Beyond that Mr Javid must grapple
with immigration as a whole. If he can
make the Home Office “fit for purpose”
then he is a hero.

CARE home worker, Alijicia
Sadeghi-Taghiabad, beat Brian
Chandler, a 73-year-old man with
Parkinson’s, six months before Mr
Chandler’s death. She was found guilty
of assault but has escaped jail. The
judge handed her 150 hours of unpaid
work and ordered her to pay £1,035.
This seems a disturbingly lenient
sentence. We have seen many cases of
care home cruelty in recent years and
any compassionate person would feel
that if you sign up to look after the
vulnerable and end up assaulting them,
then a stiff prison sentence should be
forthcoming.

S A newspaper columnist I would not be
doing my job properly
if I didn’t get a reaction. But as a Jewish
columnist the reaction is very different to what
others would expect. Death
threats, for example, are so
normal that I don’t even
register most of them.
As for anti-Semitic abuse,
I can’t recall a week when I
have had less than 100 antiSemitic messages. Most weeks
it is nearer 250.
So let’s talk about the death
threats. Usually, they are along
the lines of “you’re going to
die, Jew boy” and go straight
in the bin (or, since most are
by email, the delete folder).
Occasionally they make a
direct threat in which case
they get sent straight to the
police. Last month for example, I had one that told me to
watch my back and look under
my car. And that my children
would be killed with me. The
email also referred to the area
of London in which I live.
Charmingly, the writer also
said that he would perform a
circumcision on me, which
would be all the more fun – to
use his words – because he
would simply cut my penis off.
Chances are that those are
simply the deranged words of
a keyboard warrior but you
never know, which is why I
called the police.
linked to the rise in popularity
of Jeremy Corbyn. My impression is that at least 90 per cent
of the anti-Semitic messages
I receive are from people who
also support Corbyn.
In recent weeks the prevalence of Labour anti-Semitism
has been a major news story.
But that has also prompted an
increase in the number of antiSemitic messages I receive all
of which describe the stories
about Labour anti-Semitism
as a smear or part of a political
ploy by the Tories (of which I
must be one because I have
highlighted the issue).
So the dilemma I wrestle
with is this: has the rise of
social media given voice to an
anti-Semitism that has always
been with us but which has
never before had a vehicle in
which to express it, or is the
anti-Semitism itself new?
My guess it is a bit of both
but it seems unlikely that
people have suddenly decided
to hate Jews simply because of
social media. After all, it is the
oldest hatred.
K
HIS was the terrifying
moment when I realised that as a Jewish
woman who was born
and raised in the UK
I may not have a future
here. And for once I couldn’t
point the finger at Jeremy Corbyn despite the fact his Labour
Party has been contaminated
by anti-Semitism.
Let me explain: on Sunday
morning I was invited to take
part in a TV discussion programme about the political
issues of the day. Anti-Semitism
was not on the agenda but
since this was a live show the
producers wanted to get the
juices flowing by introducing a
warm-up debate.
With Amber Rudd’s career
teetering it made sense to talk
about whether the Home Secretary should go. The invited
studio audience showcased a
spectrum of views but when
asked my opinion I could not
help but wonder why Labour –
so voluble in calling for Rudd’s
head – could not show the
same enthusiasm for getting
Picture: GETTY

UT if death threats
are not something one
can ignore, if I was
even remotely bothered by the
day-to-day anti-Semitic abuse
I would have quit my job years
ago. It has to be water off a
duck’s back or it would all be
too much.
I have blocked about 700
people on Twitter so I don’t
even see most of what is
directed at me. But barely a
day goes by when I’m not
accused of paedophilia (all
Jews are child molesters, you
see), being a paid agent of the
Israeli government (my bank
manager would be relieved if
that were true), and being a
member of that old theme,
the Jewish conspiracy.
However, in recent years
things have taken a clear turn
for the worse. And that turn is
rid of Corbyn over his handling
of anti-Semitism within the
party.
Surely the leader of Her
Majesty’s Opposition has been
guilty of similar, if not far worse
errors of judgment, with his
inability to deal with this toxic
issue?
Even if you don’t agree, and
even if it seems to go a little off
piste, surely it is a remark I am
entitled to make. But barely
had I reached a full stop before
I was subjected to booing,
jeering and cries of “antiSemitism has nothing to do
with it”. It was then, I realised,
that perhaps my days in this
country – a country that I love
fiercely – may be numbered.
For it was the strength of
reaction, the vociferous and
intimidating response of the
audience that was so deeply
disturbing. Every time I
attempted a rational response
I was shouted down by mob
invective.
Why were emotions so high?
Why was there the need to
respond in a manner which,
for a few moments, propelled
me back to the beer halls of
pre-war Germany where the
horrors of National Socialism
started to seep into public
consciousness?
UP IN ARMS: Demonstrators campaign against anti-Semitism
S THE only Jewish
woman on the panel,
being the centre of a
baying mob so keen to shout
down the issue of antiSemitism left me reeling with
shock but also made me
understand
how
much
Labour’s
hard-Left
have
achieved.
I was not outside a student
union being hassled by Labour
activists – these were ordinary
men and women who felt it
acceptable to unite in intimidating hysteria to shout down
my views.
And it is a pity that those
Labour Party members virtue
signalling over the Windrush
debacle don’t take the same
approach towards their own
leader’s behaviour towards
other citizens, namely Jewish
citizens.
It is something I never
expected to experience in the
UK. Maybe, like those Labour
supporters, I have been looking the other way for too long.

KNOW. I know. The debate
about working mothers vs
stay-at-home mums is a luxury
in which only a few women can
afford to indulge. The rest of us
– and I’m now a working
grandma too – simply don’t have the
choice. It isn’t about philosophy, the
allure of our stimulating careers or
wanting a few quid to call our own.
It’s about simple necessity. We work
because we have to.
Even if we could afford a chaiselongue we’re too cream-crackered
to recline upon it discussing the
pros and cons of work versus raising
our children without plunging
instantly into a deep sleep. We’re up
against it financially, struggling to
pay our rent or mortgages, worried
sick when our thriving children grow
out of yet another pair of expensive
school shoes. We march off to paid
employment, despite soaring childcare costs and an ever-present pang
niggling at our hearts whenever we
have a chance to think about what
we’re missing.
The figures are dramatic. In 1975
only half of mums went out to work.
By 2015 72 per cent of us were
employed outside the home. Consigning our children, often still in
nappies, to the care of others has

Russell Brand cancels
tour after his mother is
critically hurt in crash
9p:pi`c;`ofe
RUSSELL Brand yesterday
revealed his mother Barbara
suffered “life-threatening” injuries when his chauffeur-driven
car was involved in a hit-andrun crash.
The 42-year-old stand-up
comedian said cancer patient
Mrs Brand, 71, suffered “polytraumatic” injuries in the headon collision last week.
Brand’s driver was taking her
to babysit his 18-month-old
daughter Mabel when the Audi
8 saloon collided with a Vauxhall Astra.
Speaking for the first time
about the accident yesterday,
the star laid bare his fears for
his mother, who has been
stricken by cancer six times.
He also cancelled nine remaining dates on his “Rebirth” tour.
“My mum’s been in a really
serious road accident and has
sustained what are called polytraumatic injuries,” he said in a
video statement.
“That means numerous, lifethreatening injuries. I can’t
imagine performing at the
moment, I feel too sad… She’s
vulnerable. She only finished
Brand’s mother Barbara, seen with her son, right, was being driven
by his chauffeur before the head-on collision last week, above
chemotherapy a month ago so
for her to be in this situation,
it’s really difficult.”
He said Mrs Brand – who was
pulled bleeding from the wreck
of the Audi – has had cancer six
times and been saved by health
service staff “on six occasions”.
His mother has beaten uterus
cancer when the comedian was
just eight, and breast cancer a
year later.
He added: “I would like to say
how I am reminded, as I have
been many times across my life,
of the importance and significance of the NHS.”
Brand went on: “Thank you
for all your positive, beautiful
messages, prayers.”
The outspoken comic said his
driver is home from hospital following the smash at Warley,
near Brentwood, Essex.
Essex Police arrested a man
in his 40s in connection with the
incident but have appealed for

Why booking a personal
hearing test is a sound plan
HEN it comes to
hearing loss, everyone
is different – so it
makes sense to get an
expert to identify any
problems and find
solutions tailored to the individual.
A hearing test with Amplifon
is designed to pinpoint the exact
type of hearing loss involved and
just how it is affecting that person’s
everyday life.
Performed by trained audiologists
the one hour and 20 minute tests
are reassuringly thorough.
Audiologist and training manager
Chris Childe says: “Our test involves
lifestyle questions, a thorough
examination of the ear, hearing
and speech recognition tests and
real-world hearing loss simulators.
“It’s a journey to understand
the impact someone’s hearing
loss has on their daily life, so we
can prescribe a bespoke solution.”
Sensorineural loss is the most
common form of hearing loss
and occurs as a result of damage
to the inner ear. It can be caused
by exposure to noise, and agerelated wear and tear.
Conductive hearing loss affects
the outer or middle ear. It can be
hereditary, the result of a head
injury or a perforated eardrum.
The solutions recommended by
the audiologist will differ depending
on the nature of the hearing loss.
Chris explains: “With conductive
loss, we may advise using aids
which are a little more powerful.”
Modern hearing aid technology
means it’s easier than ever to find
the ideal balance between
performance and appearance.
Amplifon offers a huge range of
aids, including those that are almost
invisible and are moulded to fit
your ear – typically used for mildto-moderate sensorineural loss as
well – along with many other state
of the art aids for more severe loss.
Each device can be programmed
to suit your needs and lifestyle.
Chris says: “The best one might
not be the most expensive or the
cheapest – but it will be the right
one for you. That’s our ethos.”
Finding the right solutions can
certainly transform lives.
Chris adds: “The most amazing
thing about being an audiologist
is when you switch on someone’s
hearing aids for the first time
and see the impact our technology
can have on someone’s life.”

A WEALTHY antiques dealer has
been jailed for at least 24 years after
strangling his seven-year-old daughter at their home.
The Old Bailey heard that “deceitful and manipulative” Robert Peters
throttled Sophia with a dressing
gown cord last November.
He initially tried to deny murder
while admitting manslaughter on
the grounds of diminished responsibility but the “calculating” businessman changed his plea to guilty.
Yesterday Peters, 56, was sentenced to at least 24 years in jail
as his wife Krittiya’s emotional
impact statement was read to
the court.
It said: “I couldn’t believe
Robert killed Sophia as I
thought he loved her so
much. Since Sophia died, I
have been on a rollercoaster of emotions, whilst
still trying to stay strong.
“I would give everything
I have to be able to
bring my daughter
Antiques dealer jailed for
life for strangling daughter
back.” She added: “I always think to
myself, if Robert was ill, why didn’t
he kill himself? Why did he kill my
innocent daughter who had done
nothing to him?”
Peters, a former Israeli
soldier, waited for his wife to
leave their £1million home
in Wimbledon, south-west
London, before strangling
Sophia as she lay in bed.
Jurors heard how when
bewildered Sophia asked
her father: “What are you
Murderer... Robert Peters
doing?”, he simply replied “Sorry”
and continued strangling her.
After the hearing Detective
Inspector Helen Rance said: “We
may never truly understand why
Robert Peters carried out this
vile crime.”
Peters, who was having an affair,
researched child killers online but
kept his murderous plans secret
from authorities, the court was told.
He called 999 to report what he
had done and the little girl was
rushed to hospital but died the
following day.
The killing came just over a month
after Peters was found not to be
a risk by a child protection team
in the London borough of Merton,
despite two suicide attempts in
2017.
Jailing him for life, Mr Justice Edis
said: “It is impossible to imagine the
last few conscious minutes of that
child’s life. She was a lovely little girl
who loved her parents and thought
that they loved her.”
The Old Bailey heard Peters’
second wife Francine claimed he
tried to strangle her during several
episodes of domestic violence
between 1994 and 2009.

ROCK star Peter Gabriel wants to
launch an online health treatment
service after his wife was cured of
cancer using stem cell therapy.
He hopes to beam tens of
thousands of therapies into homes in
a similar way to song downloading
services, such as Apple’s iTunes.
Meabh Gabriel, 47, developed an
aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s
lymphoma 18 months ago which left
her with painful tumours, the largest
of which was the size of a melon.
After intensive chemotherapy
failed, the couple turned to doctors
William and Vincent Li, of The
Angiogenesis Foundation in
Cambridge, Massachusetts.
They suggested genetically
engineering her immune
cells to fight the cancer – a
therapy known as CAR
T-Cell – which cleared the
disease in a single infusion.
Stem cells enable
the growth and renewal
of tissues and
organs. Now the
former Genesis
Star Gabriel

singer, 68, has teamed up with
medical experts to create The Tap.
The service would bring together
the latest technology from
thousands of companies to monitor
health or treat conditions such as
stroke, cancer or cardiovascular
disease at home.
People could potentially download
tumour-busting electrical fields to
prevent the abnormal cell division
behind cancer, or low frequency
ultrasound to boost wound healing.
The twice-married father-of-four
revealed the extent of his wife’s
illness at the International Unite to
Cure Conference in Vatican City,
where the couple met the Pope.
He said: “The idea is to create
a platform that would allow new
types of medicine to be
streamed to the home so that
the home becomes the
treatment centre.
“Streamed medicine
is about to hit, so
let’s accelerate it
and make sure the
experts start
talking to each
other so it’s all in
one place.”

F
N A site at the edge of
the Norfolk village of
Wymondham a gated
community with landscaped
gardens
is
under
construction.
Once complete it will boast a
pleasing environment of hedges
and mature trees and each of the
30 properties will have a garage
or dedicated parking and its own
patio or garden.
Nothing particularly unusual
about that, you might say, but
what makes it unique is that
every single house is a bungalow
and that is a style of housing that
has become the Cinderella of the
sector in recent years.
Indeed, over the past three
decades the number of bungalows built each year has dropped
from more than 26,000 in 1986 to
2,600 in 2017 as developers look
to get more bang for their buck
by building multistorey houses
or blocks of flats that provide
a greater return. Meanwhile,
planning policy has encouraged
high-density housing and the
preservation of the green belt.
But this week a group of MPs
and peers argued that Government policies were “overlooking
the housing needs of older people”. The All Party Parliamentary
Group on Housing and Care for
Older People observed that the
elderly living in the countryside
are used to “low-rise environments” and that the “muchderided bungalow may need to
make a comeback”.
Retirement
housebuilder
McCarthy & Stone is already on
the case. Apart from its estate at
Wymondham – where 60 per cent
of the properties have been sold
off-plan at prices ranging from
£369,950 to £419,950 – it has others at Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, and Buntingford, Hertfordshire. In all, the company
has 240 bungalows at various
stages of completion across 15
schemes and is in the process of
acquiring land for a further 180

for retirement housing,” says
chief executive Clive Fenton. “We
have seen huge interest in our
bungalows.
This comes as no surprise to
former shadow home secretary
and Daily Express columnist
Ann Widdecombe, who has lived
in her bungalow on Dartmoor
for eight years.
“What’s not to like about a
bungalow?” asks the 70-year-old.
“First of all they haven’t got any
stairs so you are never going to
have to worry about putting in a
stairlift when you are older.
“Second, it’s like having a flat
except that it’s detached and
you have a garden which you
would not have with a flat. And
finally they are a better shape.
“They are good for the elderly,
good for anybody looking after
the elderly, good for anybody
who is disabled and good for
mums with children because
they don’t have to cart their
children up and down stairs.
When my parents retired to their
bungalow it was in a close which
contained five bungalows and in
those days four of those bungalows were occupied by parents
with children.”
She adds: “And when a roof tile
falls off you can shin up and put
it back yourself! We should be
building loads more bungalows.”
Widdecombe even has an old
joke about how the name came
about: “One workman got tired
and he said to another, ‘Let’s
bung a low one up for a
change.’ ”
@
N FACT the word dates back
to the British Raj meaning
“house in the Bengali style”.
It referred to the sort of easy
to erect one-storey residences
encircled by a verandah that
were constructed for British
officers and administrators.
On their return to Blighty,
old India hands yearned for
similar accommodation and the
first modern British bungalows,
designed by architect John
Taylor, were built at Westgateon-Sea, Kent, in 1869 to 1870.
They became a popular feature of English seaside towns in
the 1920s and 1930s when
thousands were built at affordable prices. There was another
boom in the aftermath of the
Second World War with 150,000
prefab bungalows erected to
house those left homeless by
wartime German bombing.
Now the pressure is on to build
a new generation of bungalows
to allow older homeowners to
move, freeing up their properties
for families desperate to move to
bigger houses.
Last November former Cabinet minister Nicky Morgan said:
“We have got to go back to building housing stock that people
are going to move into in later
life. In the Midlands there is a
desperate shortage of bungalows
and suitable accommodation for
older people.”
But bringing about this shift is
easier said than done, according
to McCarthy & Stone land and
planning director Gary Day. “In
the rural context there is an
awful lot of land that is protected
through green belt policy or
other environmental protections
and in the urban area the
emphasis is on smaller homes for
first-time buyers from a planning
policy perspective,” he says.
“In both instances it is quite
difficult to bring forward sites for
this type of housing. We are doing
the best that we can because we
very much share the general
principles
underpinning
the
report and we certainly feel that
bungalows provide an important
element of housing choice for
older people.”
And he has no doubts about
their enduring popularity: “I was
born and bred on the south coast
and we have got quite a lot of
bungalow land in and around
Bournemouth.
“My understanding from those
estate agents I talk to locally is
that as soon as bungalows come
on to the market they are
snapped up.”

NOW sporting a straightened nose, Mike
Tindall’s crooked hooter was known to be
a source of amusement to wife Zara’s
grandmother. On meeting the former
England rugby captain’s one-time Irish
rival Brian O’Driscoll, the Queen observed:
“Your nose is in considerably better shape
than Mike Tindall’s.”
FORMER Manchester United boss Sir Alex
Ferguson, who presented Arsene Wenger with
a silver vase at the weekend in honour of his
imminent departure from
Arsenal, was known to
respond badly when losing
to his arch-rival.
It was following an FA
Cup defeat to Wenger’s
Arsenal in 2003 that an
enraged Sir Alex, pictured,
kicked a boot into the face
of David Beckham in the
United dressing room, cutting him above
the eye.
While relations between the two men (since
reconciled) were unfriendly at the time, the
flying boot had been an accident on Fergie’s
part. Beckham left the club for Real Madrid
just months later.
FOLLOWING her resignation from the
Government, does former home secretary
Amber Rudd have a shoulder to cry on?
The politician, 54, was in a relationship
with Tory colleague Kwasi Kwarteng, 42,
but the mother of two has recently been
describing herself as single.
MEANWHILE, friends recall Rudd was
surprisingly involved in one of the most
successful British movies of recent decades.
Long before her political career she had a
job on 1994 film Four Weddings And A Funeral
hiring upper-class extras to appear in a
marriage scene.
Describing Rudd as the movie’s
“aristocracy co-ordinator”, producer Duncan
Kenworthy has since explained: “She knew a
lot of dukes and earls.”
FOLLICLY challenged Sajid Javid, 48,
appointed Home Secretary yesterday, is
proud of his looks. Married to wife Laura
for more than 20 years, he once announced:
“She told me bald men look a lot sexier.”
CALLING on Speaker John Bercow to quit
before the next general election, Betty
Boothroyd has long been unimpressed by his
refusal to wear the traditional attire.
Unhappy that pint-sized Bercow
abandoned the formal garb Boothroyd, in
the post from 1992 to 2000, complained:
“Seven hundred years of history there. It’s
not asking too much.”
ALMOST 50 years after her success at the
Eurovision Song Contest, Lulu, pictured,
admits she “can’t even
watch it” these days.
She was a joint winner
(with Spain, the
Netherlands and France)
in 1969 with Boom
Bang-a-Bang. She later
admitted: “I know it’s a
rotten song but I won so
who cares? I’d have sung
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep standing on my
head if that’s what it took to win.”
STILL performing at 73, Sir Rod Stewart
insisted on checking his heart rate during a
US show. After glancing at his high-tech
watch, he quipped: “It says I should have
been dead about half an hour ago.”
RESPONDING to claims Meghan Markle
has convinced Prince Harry to drink
healthy juices, his mother’s former chef
Darren McGrady mischievously recalls:

I had poisoned her with beet juice.”

THIRTY-SIX years after a British
toddler vanished while living at a
military base in Germany a new
search has been launched to try to
establish what happened to her.
Katrice Lee is feared dead but
officials have not ruled out that she
could have been abducted as a twoyear-old in 1981 and might still be
alive. An image of what she could
look like now as an adult aged 38 has
been released by police.
Richard O’Leary, senior investigating officer at the Royal Military
Police (RMP), has appealed for anyone who thinks they may be Katrice
to get in touch.
He said: “If anyone feels they
could be Katrice, we encourage
them to come forward.”
The RMP announced yesterday it would look for fresh
clues into Katrice’s disappearance along the banks of
the River Alme in the German city of Paderborn.
The search area is near to
the Naafi shopping centre
where Katrice, from Hartlepool, went with her mother
Sharon on November 28 1981
when she was abducted.
Richard Lee, Katrice’s father,
was a sergeant major stationed at
the base in Schloss Neuhaus at the
time. Last year a photofit picture
was released of a man allegedly seen
putting Katrice into a green car
parked near to the shopping centre.
Mr O’Leary said: “The aim of the
search is to find evidence that could
finally shed light on what happened
to her. A green saloon car was seen
on the River Alme Bridge near the
Naafi the day after she disappeared.
Police search riverbank for
British girl lost 36 years ago
River Alme near to where
Katrice, inset, vanished.
Photo-fit of suspect, above
It may or may not be the same car,
but we’re keen to identify it.”
A huge search at the time in 1981
proved fruitless, but six years ago
the military police announced
the reopening of the investigation.
Following an analysis of the 11,000
page file into the disappearance, a
five-week forensic search of the
riverbank has now begun.
Mr Lee told the BBC last year he
still dreamt of being reunited with
Katrice. He said: “At the end of the
day, this is a missing girl. I want her
back.” He was also angry about
errors made by the military police,
which they have since admitted to.
They included border guards not
being informed when his daughter
disappeared. Statements from shop
workers were also not taken until six
weeks later and information about
Katrice’s distinctive eye condition
was not made public. Mr Lee said:
“The initial investigation was a complete mess and subsequent investigations were either closing ranks or
covering mistakes.
“Trust is not a given, and what the
police need to do is regain my trust.
Hopefully, we can resolve issues and
find out where my daughter is.”

A DAY out turned to horror when a fouryear-old girl was badly burned by a redhot lump of coal as a steam engine passed
at a vintage vehicle show.
Anysia Gardener will have long-term
scars after the “50p-sized” block landed
on her neck, doctors have told her family.
The little girl, who was with her grandmother Alex Edwards, 66, began “screaming and crying” as the coal rolled down
her chin and stuck just below her neck.
Her mother Charissa Chapman, 25, is
taking legal action against Crosville
Motor Service which owns the steam
engine, which travels on road and claims
other spectators were hit.
Bystanders helped carry Anysia into a
nearby hotel and she was admitted to a
specialist burns unit in Bristol.
The incident happened in Westonsuper-Mare, Somerset, at Crosville’s vintage vehicle day on the seaside town’s
Beach Lawns.
=XkXc
Ms Chapman said: “Anysia had a swimming costume on and it hit the one
exposed area, just below her neck towards
the chin.
“As the steam engine went past, coal
sprayed out of a pipe and left her with
four 50p-sized deep burns.
“She has been seeing specialists weekly
to have the dressing changed. They are
checking for infection and she cries every
time.
“Doctors say it will leave long-term
scars but hope they fade over time.”
Ms Chapman, who lives with her husband James, 25, in Weston-super-Mare,
added: “I am taking legal action. There
should have been a gauze to protect spectators. I know others were hit but I don't
think it was as bad.
“This steam engine gets used at many
events. If it hit a newborn baby in a pram
it could have been fatal.”

A CARER who guided the pen of a
dying, confused millionaire as he
signed over almost half his fortune to
her family has been stripped of her
windfall by a judge.
Donna Henderson “guided the hand”
of retired London banker Marcel Chu
on a will she had drawn up as he lay on
his death bed.
The former financier had already
made a will in 2008, dividing his estate
between his family and a close friend.
Now the £60-a-day carer has been
slapped with a legal costs bill of up to
£85,000.
The court heard pensioner Mr Chu

retiring to his £700,000 flat in South

He had “a relatively close relationship” with his brothers, Allen and
Stanley Chu, and sister Eva Young, for
most of his life.
He had appointed them executors of
the will he made in 2008.
Under that, the siblings each got 26
per cent of his estate, while a niece and
nephew got 14 per cent and a close
friend 7 per cent.
But Mr Chu suffered from Morvans
syndrome, a rare auto-immune condition “which caused memory loss and
confusion”, the High Court heard.
And in “his final year or so” he could
no longer live without assistance.
It was at that stage that Donna
Henderson “took control of his life and
excluded his siblings from further
involvement”, said Judge Nigel Price.
Mr Chu was in hospital two days

was considering closing
on Friday afternoons
has dropped the plan.
It was consulting on
shutting at 1.15pm,
suggesting that a

teacher “burnout”.
But the school, in
Daventry, Northants has
scrapped the idea after
a meeting with parents.
It had said that the
“huge workload” for
teachers means they
work 60 hours a week
and that many cannot
keep a work/life balance.
It had added: “We can

ever made a fully improvised episode”.
But Gibson admitted they “find the
same things funny” so it was hard not to
burst into laughter throughout filming.
“Peter constantly makes me giggle,”
she said. “We were always laughing.”
Kay, who recently screened the
unscripted episode and the show finale at
a charity event in Blackpool, said: “It’s
wonderful hearing an audience react to
what you've been working on for so long.”
The second series of the Bafta-winning
show ended on an emotional cliffhanger

CAR Share star Sian Gibson says almost
all the laughter in the forthcoming final
episode is “completely genuine”.
The actress will be returning to TV with
comedian Peter Kay as car-sharing
colleagues John and Kayleigh. But
this time they will be ad-libbing the
entire episode.
Kay said he wanted to do “something

Dog owner dies ‘of broken
heart’ after pet is put down
Tragic...Jilly Madgwick and Lucky
A LONELY pensioner died “of
a broken heart” soon after her
beloved dog was put down,
her best friend has revealed.
Jilly Madgwick’s health
rapidly deteriorated when
Lucky, her Jack Russell-cross,
suffered a stroke and died at
her local vets.
Her faithful companion of
15 years, who she got as a
puppy, had also been losing
weight. With the support of
close friend Anna-Marie Tindall, 46, she made the difficult
decision to put him to sleep.
Mrs Tindall said she believed
Ms Madgwick, 79, of Helpringham, Lincs, felt after Lucky’s
death that she had nothing
left to live for. She said: “I
By James Hore
think she had a broken heart
after Lucky died and she just
went downhill from there.
“Lucky was like a child to
Jilly. She thought the world of
him and he was a wonderful
dog. He was well looked after
and well-loved.
“They used to go for walks
together and he walked nicely
to heel, although he was a bit
mischievous too.”
Mrs Tindall said her friend
had put off going to the
doctors about her own health
for fear of leaving Lucky on his
own. She had earlier been
diagnosed with cancer. Ms
Madgwick died on March 16,
just weeks after Lucky died on
December 6.
A photo of Lucky was placed
in her coffin at her funeral
at Grantham crematorium
earlier this month.
Before Lucky died an anonymous neighbour had called
the RSPCA over fears the dog
was underweight. The charity
took the dog to the vets and
paid for his treatment.
Mrs Tindall was angered by
the call, saying Lucky was
“simply getting very old”
before his death.
An RSPCA spokesman said:
“It’s really sad when an
owner has to make a difficult
decision to have their beloved
pet put to sleep.”

5 REASONS
why you need a
Funeral Plan…
We have partnered with funeral plan provider Dignity to offer
Express readers a funeral plan that does not cost the earth and
provides expert help and support for your loved ones. Here’s why…
1 Secure the funeral of your choice
guaranteed at today’s prices
A funeral plan is indeed the best way to take care of funeral
costs in advance. You can guarantee the funeral of your
choice with a Dignity Prepaid Funeral Plan from as little
as £3,095. By prepaying your funeral now, Dignity will
guarantee to fix the cost of your funeral plan at today’s
prices – so, irrespective of any future funeral cost increases,
you’re loved ones will never have to make any additional
payments for the services included in your chosen plan.
2 Avoid the rising cost of funerals and the
effects of inflation
It makes sound practical sense to take out a Funeral Plan
today. Funeral costs are increasing rapidly. Between 2011
and 2017, funeral costs increased from £2,971 to £4,086.
That’s an alarming 37.5% rise and show no sign of slowing
down. By 2024, Dignity project the average UK funeral cost
will rise to £5,925†.
3 Be confident that you can make the
safe choice
Dignity guarantees that the money you pay for your Funeral
Plan is secure and protected until it’s needed. Your money
goes into the National Funeral Trust – a totally independent,
secure trust fund – where the money required for your
funeral is carefully looked after until it is needed.
4 Unburden loved ones from the stress of

By Jane Warren
N HIS 1963 hit Moonshiner,
Bob Dylan crooned about the
perils of drink with the lyric
“I’ve spent all my money, on
whiskey and beer” but if the
recent success of celebrities
entering the liquor business is anything to go by, the singer’s latest
venture is set to make him a
fortune.
The 76-year-old music legend
and Nobel laureate is releasing his
own line of whiskey, named Heaven’s Door – after his famous 1973
song Knocking On Heaven’s Door
– in partnership with drinks entrepreneur Marc Bushala.
There was a time when developing a perfume or after-shave brand
was almost de rigueur for A-listers
at the peak of their influence, but
in the past few years alcohol has
become an increasingly popular
endorsement for male celebrities.
“For years there was a huge play
on fragrance, fashion and make-up
merchandising, but for the more
macho type of male star it was
harder to find a natural fit in these
areas,” says Lou Ellerton, brand
director of consultancy Mash.
“Spirits changed all that for
famous men, particularly when
they aligned themselves to the
brand attributes of a premium
product and to the discernment,
taste and individuality that such
products imply.”
She says that in the past few
years “the artisanal spirits and
craft beer thing has gone through
the roof”. For example, global
tequila sales rose by more than five
per cent in 2016 compared with just
0.3 per cent growth for the spirits
industry as a whole.
“Within their categories of premium niche sales the celebrity
brands are doing very well,” adds
Ellerton, citing Dan Aykroyd, who
launched Crystal Head vodka 11
years ago (see below), as the face
who set the understated tone of
the approach that celebrities tend
to take to their alcohol brands.
“Only those in the know would
associate the celebrity with the
brand. In most cases you have to
look quite hard to find the connection and this is key in building
the mystique of these premium
products.”
So, who are the other famous
players in the celebrity drinks
market?

said it was promoting drinking to

in order to preserve his image, a
fact which the Advertising Standards

to stay on air.

Label: Casamigos tequila
Last June, actor George Clooney
sold the tequila brand that he cofounded with his friend Rande Gerber, husband of supermodel Cindy
Crawford, for $1billion to UK drinks
firm Diageo – the company behind
such global brands as Smirnoff,
Johnnie Walker and Baileys.
In just four years Clooney’s idea
for a tequila that “tasted great and
didn’t burn going down” while
offering “little hangover”, had
become the fastest-growing superpremium tequila brand in the US.
Casamigos – Spanish for “house
of friends” – was created in 2013 by
Clooney, Gerber and their friend,
property developer Mike Meldman.
The trio own neighbouring houses
in Los Cobos, Mexico, and spent
more than five years developing
their brand with a master distiller
in the country’s highlands.
The three put in £435,000 each as
an initial investment and stand to
receive £242million each if the full
sale price is realised. Clooney said
in a statement. “We’ll still be very
much a part of Casamigos. Starting
with a shot tonight. Maybe two.”
Is it any good? The $1billion investment says it all but it might not be
for everybody. According to Taste
Tequila, a site for aficionados, it
smells like fake vanilla and they
wouldn’t recommend it.
DAN AYKROYD
Label: Crystal Head Vodka
Dismayed by the lack of additivefree vodka available, in 2007 the
actor decided to make his own, in
partnership with American artist
John Alexander who designed the
skull-shaped bottle which is made
in Milan by Bruni Glass. Its distinctive shape was inspired by the
pair’s shared fascination for Mesoamerican skull carvings. Crystal
Head was in development at the
same time as the film Indiana Jones
And The Kingdom Of The Crystal
Skull and sensing a conflict Aykroyd
arranged to meet director Steven
Spielberg to resolve the issue.
To his delight, Spielberg asked if
it could be served at the premiere.
Filtered in part through quartz
crystals that are believed to have
healing properties, it became the
official vodka of the Rolling Stones
50th anniversary tour in 2013.
Is it any good? It has won numerous awards and last year took gold
in the San Francisco World Spirits
Competition for the third time.

the US-based Aviation Gin, becoming both its new owner and creative

Described as offering “a unique

flavour than typical London dry
gins”, Reynolds calls it the “best
damn gin on the planet” and claims
he was inspired to invest in the
brand after tasting it for the first
time the previous year.
The actor describes his responsibilities at the company thus: “I’ll
spend my days being photographed
intermittently clinching my jaw
muscles while pointing at things
and nodding. I can assure you,
there are smarter, more reasonable
people in charge.”
Is it any good? Said to be the
world’s
highest-rated
gin,
it
achieved a score of 97 points from
Wine Enthusiast Magazine which
has 800,000 readers worldwide and
is recognised as “an acknowledged
icon of the American craft distilling
movement”.
JAY-Z
Label: Ace of Spades champagne
In 2014, the rapper increased his
ownership stake in Armand de
Brignac champagne, nicknamed
“Ace of Spades”, after buying out
Sovereign Brands. It followed his
initial investment in 2006, the year
its ostentatious gold bottles made
a cameo appearance in his video
for Show Me What You Got.
With a reputation as a party
champagne, and made by the Cattier family who founded their champagne house in 1763, it is believed
to be the only marque available in a
30-litre midas bottle. Two Russian
footballers who’d played for the
country in Euro 2016 were fined
and demoted by their domestic
clubs after being seen at a party in
Monte Carlo surrounded by bottles
of the stuff. It is said that £200,000worth was ordered at the party.
Is it any good? A bottle of Armand
de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut
gold, non-vintage, can be bought
online for around £200. According
to Decanter magazine it lives up to
the hype, scoring 95 per cent and
being described as “elegant, refined
and very stylish (unlike the
bottle)”.

M
OST of us have been
affected by cancer but
for Beverley Craven it has
been an uncomfortably
close and continuing
encounter. The singer,
now 54, won her own battle with
breast cancer but she lost her sister
and a cousin to the disease when
they were in their 40s.
Beverley still struggles to come to
terms with the death of her younger
sister Kathy four years ago.
“It has been devastating for the
whole family. I don’t think we will
ever get over it,” she says.
“I still find myself processing
what has happened and it still
doesn’t quite compute. There is
not a day goes by that I don’t wear
some of her clothing. I can’t imagine
Kathy not being in my life.
“But slowly the lovely memories
of a time before cancer are
overtaking the horrible ones and
the terrible suffering of her last
months.”
Losing her sister was also a
poignant reminder of how lucky
she has been to beat the disease.
The singer-songwriter, best known
for her ballad Promise Me, was
diagnosed in 2005.
She explains: “I used to
self-examine and I noticed a tiny
lump, the size of a petit pois, in my
left nipple. At first I didn’t think
anything of it. If you have breastfed
for a while you get all sorts of lumps
and bumps. So I foolishly left it for
about three or four months.”
Fortunately she did mention it to
the practice nurse when she was
having a routine smear test, who
thought a doctor should check it.
After that question – which was
almost an afterthought – things
began to move very quickly.
“When I saw the GP she told me
she was treating me as an
emergency. This was all out of the
blue, that was the worst part of it,
the fear she put into me,” she says.
A few days later a consultant was
talking her through the next steps:
a lumpectomy and radiotherapy,
although she was fortunate to be
spared the ordeal of chemotherapy.
In the aftermath of her diagnosis
Beverley admits she became
“obsessive” about her diet but says:
“When you start to get obsessive
about it, it takes over your life and
you become a bit of a bore.
“There has to be a balance.
Now my whole attitude is that
it’s not about living a life of
purity and doing absolutely
everything right. It’s a case of
living your life to the full.”
I
T IS one of the positives
she has taken from being
touched by cancer. “We all
trot along, thinking life is
open-ended. But when you are
looking down the barrel at
cancer you realise you have got
to get on and do things while
you can.”
Beverley’s encounters with
cancer also underline its
complexity. She has not only lost
her sister and cousin to breast
cancer, an aunt has twice battled
and beaten the disease.
It is the sort of family history
which led to the discovery of the
BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which
we now know dramatically
increase the risk of breast,
ovarian and prostate cancer. This
knowledge has prompted many
women, including actress Angelina
Jolie, to undergo preventive
mastectomies.
In the wake of Angelina Jolie’s
revelation, Beverley’s three grownup daughters also contemplated
radical surgery.
But despite having a family
history which points strongly to a
genetic cause, tests have confirmed

Beverley does not carry either
version of the breast cancer gene.
“I think the whole genetic thing is a
bit of a red herring,” she says. It’s
an observation which aligns with
the latest research on the genetics
of cancer and new therapies which
help the body’s immune system
identify and kill the rogue cells.
Although scientists have
identified a small number of
so-called oncogenes, such as
BRCA1 and 2, which are strongly
SHUTTERSTOCK
associated with specific cancers,
the focus is turning to the strands
of DNA between our genes which
were once written off as “junk”.
It’s now thought that most
cancers arise from a series of
switches within this genetic code
which are on when they should be
off, or off when they should be on.
Individually each is unlikely to
cause a problem. But a
combination of glitches can open
the door to cancer. And because
cancer cells are faulty versions of
our own cells, our immune system
is blind to them.
“If your body is programmed to
do something genetically, so be it.
I have been tested for the BRCA
genes and everything came back
negative. It could be there is some
other gene they haven’t discovered
yet, or it may be that our immune
systems are not quite as robust as
they should be,” says Beverley.
But she adds: “It is so important
to live your life. I am constantly
encouraging my girls, ‘If you want
to do something, go out and do it’.”
That’s why Beverley is putting
the grown-up into “girl power” to
create a supergroup with legendary
singer-songwriters Judie Tzuke and
Julia Fordham, accompanied by a
five-piece backing band and
20-piece string orchestra.
Woman To Woman will tour the
UK in November and December,
with each star performing iconic
hits such as Stay With Me Till
Dawn and (Love Moves In)
Mysterious Ways, as well as new
material including their single, a
ballad about survival called Safe.
“To be working as a trio is a
dream come true,” says Beverley.
“We are all huge fans of each
other’s work, so to be able to come
together is special, a celebration of
live music and sisterhood.”

10 secrets to a lo
A
GEING is inevitable and
although our genes give
an indication of how long
we could live, how we live
our lives has a big impact
on our longevity. The
importance of this is clear when you
look at residents of Okinawa in
Japan, an island famous for its high
number of centenarians.
Recent generations who have
swapped traditional habits of eating
leafy greens, rice, soya and fish for a
more Western way of life are not
living as long as previous ones.
But what should an age-defying
diet consist of? Here we have
The key to ageing well doesn’t come in a pill
or potion but in eating habits and everyday
ingredients in your kitchen, say JULIETTE
KELLOW and Dr SARAH BREWER
identified 10 common eating habits
seen among the world’s longestliving communities. They are the
foundations for protecting us
against many diseases common in
the Western world including obesity,
heart disease, cancer, Type 2
diabetes, dementia and arthritis, all
conditions that hinder quality of life
and often cut lives short.
1
Downsize your meals as
the day goes on
In Western societies many of us miss
breakfast, grab a small lunch, have a
huge dinner and snack in the
evening. Studies confirm that such
eating patterns are linked to obesity.
Eating lots of food in the evening
also means we’re less likely to feel
hungry the next morning, so we skip
breakfast and the cycle continues.
The bottom line is our bodies cope
better when we eat more at the start
of the day and less as it wears on.
2
Know how much is enough
The more overweight we are, the
shorter our lives. Experts agree that
one of the best things we can do to
live longer is to stay a healthy
weight. And for many that means
breaking a lifelong habit of
overeating. The elders
of Okinawa, who are
renowned for their
long and healthy
lives, practise
something
called “hara
hachi bu” which
translates as
eating until
they are 80 per
cent full. It’s
impossible to
know when we’ve
reached 80 per cent
fullness but the
important message is to stop eating
when we could still eat a little more.
3
Eat more plants
Look at the communities in the
world with the longest life
expectancies and one of the key
things they share is a mainly
plant-based diet with plenty of fruit
and vegetables.
Skewing your diet towards plants
seems to protect against many
age-related conditions including
heart disease, cancer, obesity and
Type 2 diabetes.
The World Health Organization
recommends eating 400g, or roughly
five portions of fruit and vegetables
per day, so aim for that, although
more is better.
4
Eat the right carbs
Carbohydrates have had a bad
press and many people have jumped
on the low-carb, high-protein
bandwagon in search of magical
weight loss and health gains.
But carbs continue to play a major
role in the diets of long-living
communities, while protein-rich
foods play a more supporting role.

onger life
exceptional longevity, with a high
proportion living until 90 or over.
Their diets are rich in pulses,
potatoes and sweet potatoes, along
with mainly non-wheat wholegrains
such as oats, rice, barley and quinoa.
5
Swap red meat for fish
High intakes of red meat are
unheard of in countries that have
the greatest number of
centenarians. Fish takes pride of
place at the meal table with meat
featuring only now and then.
It’s unsurprising really, since fish is
high in protein, low in saturated fat
and packed with a wide range of
nutrients.
Many of the health benefits of fish
are attributed to its omega 3 fats. In
a 2013 study of a group of elderly
people, those who had the highest
levels of omega 3 fats in their blood
actually lowered their risk of dying
early by 27 per cent.
6
Eat as nature intended
Take a look around a
supermarket and it’s easy to find
thousands of products that are
completely unrecognisable from
their natural state such as chicken
nuggets or frosted flakes.
But these types of foods don’t
feature in the traditional diets of
those people who live long and
healthy lives in Japan or the
Mediterranean, where people are
more likely to eat natural, fresh
unprocessed foods.
7
Choose naturally
packaged fats
Whether you follow a low-fat diet
like the Japanese or a higher-fat
Mediterranean eating plan, getting
your fats from natural foods such as
olive oil, nuts, seeds and oily fish as
opposed to those found in saturates
and trans fats (red meat, cheese,
pastries, takeaways, biscuits and
cakes) is likely to help you live
longer.
High intakes of saturates and
trans fats increase blood cholesterol,
a key risk factor for heart disease.
But research is increasingly
showing that these fats may also
raise the risk of other diseases
including Type 2 diabetes, dementia
and certain cancers because they
trigger inflammation in the body.
8
Dose up on the
sunshine vitamin
Despite being able to make it
ourselves, a lack of vitamin D is one
of the most common nutritional
deficiencies in the world. Most
vitamin D is made when the skin is
exposed to the sun’s UVB rays so
people who cover up or are
housebound are at particular risk
of deficiency.
You need only short periods of
exposure and it’s still important to
follow sun safety advice and make
sure skin doesn’t burn. You can top
up your body’s vitamin D stores by
eating such things as oily fish,
mushrooms and eggs.

Eat a rainbow
Until recently it was believed the
health-promoting benefits of plant
foods are down to fibre, vitamins
and minerals. Now research shows
they naturally contain thousands of
other compounds: phytochemicals.
These often reside in the outer
layers and are responsible for the
colour of vegetables and fruits.
The more colours you eat the wider
the variety of phytochemicals.
10
Drink plenty of fluids
The body is two-thirds water
so it’s no wonder water is vital for all
bodily functions. It carries nutrients
in the blood, removes waste,
regulates temperature and acts as a
lubricant and shock absorber.
Research from the European Food
Safety Authority suggests adequate
daily intakes of water are about 2
litres (3.5 pints) for women and 2.5

F YOU are jetting off on
holiday in a few months it
might be worth thinking
about whether you need a
measles, mumps and rubella
(MMR) jab before you go.
The combined MMR vaccination
is advised for travel to most of
Asia, Africa, India and South
America. Recently there have
been measles outbreaks in
countries such as Australia, the
US, Canada, New Zealand and
many European countries,
including holiday hotspots such
as Italy and Greece.
Health experts have warned
that rates in some parts of the
UK are also soaring – there have
been 250 cases in London this
year alone – and have blamed
unprotected holidaymakers for
bringing the highly infectious bug
back home with them.
The World Health Organization
(WHO) says that unfounded fears
over the safety of MMR, along
with complacency, mean
thousands of Britons could
potentially be at risk. Here’s what
you need to know.
WHY DO I NEED THE VACCINE?
Measles, mumps and rubella are
all viruses which can lead to
serious complications such as
pneumonia and encephalitis and
can even prove fatal.
Measles in particular is highly
contagious and is among one of
the most infectious diseases in
the Western world. Measles
symptoms may include a fever,
a characteristic red rash, a cough,
nasal congestion and exhaustion.
Mumps infections typically
cause significant swelling around
the jaw, muscle aches, a fever and
headaches. Complications from
mumps include deafness and
fertility problems.
The rubella virus can also
cause fever, conjunctivitis,
malaise and cold-like symptoms.
Do you
need the
MMR jab
to travel?
This summer millions of us will head off to
warmer climes for a well-earned holiday but
making sure you are protected against measles
before you go is a must, writes LAURA MILNE
The red rubella rash is usually
around the neck, face and the
ears but can appear elsewhere.
It can also affect the lymph
nodes. Rubella (also known as
German measles) is a concern
during pregnancy because it can
cause changes in foetal
development and in some cases
miscarriage.
HOW SAFE IS THE VACCINE?
Health officials have had to
strongly argue against
anti-vaccination campaigners
who claim MMR vaccines cause
Struggling with weight loss?
Try formoline L112 – Germany’s No. 1 selling
pharmacy weight loss tablet*
Lose excess weight and keep it off by combining a balanced diet
and exercise with taking formoline L112.
formoline L112 is clinically proven to get results, helping you to lose up
to 50% more weight than with dieting and exercise alone. For weight
reduction, take two tablets twice daily and once you’ve reached your
weight loss goal, take one tablet twice daily for weight management.
And help let yo-yo dieting become a thing of the past!
LOSE up to
50%
more weight than
with dieting and
exercise alone
Clinically proven to get results
Easy to take
No need for extreme diets
Suitable for diabetics
Proven in a 12 month study - A unique, year long trial
published in ‘Current Developments in Nutrition’, has shown
that formoline L112 is an effective weight loss treatment for
overweight and obese people. Half the participants received
the natural weight loss tablet whilst the other half received
a placebo. Both groups reduced their caloric intake by 10%
and increased their physical activity level by taking 1hr of
brisk walking every day.
At the end of the trial, the group taking formoline L112 lost
more weight than the placebo group with an average weight
loss of 12kg and a waist reduction of over 13cm, compared to
8kg weight loss and 10cm waist reduction in the placebo group.
How does it work? Taken with meals, formoline L112 binds dietary fats in the stomach, reducing
the absorption of these fats by the body. Unlike some other weight loss treatments, formoline L112 is
very well tolerated.

WHEN IS THE MMR VACCINE
ROUTINELY GIVEN?
The NHS offers the MMR vaccine
to infants who get their first dose
at 13 months and a booster jab
before they turn five.
Around 90 per cent of patients
are protected after the first dose,
while the second dose helps to
protect the remaining 10 per cent
and increase the length of time the
vaccine continues to work. The
Department of Health advises
students who haven’t already been
vaccinated to have it before
attending university.
STAYING SAFE:
The MMR vaccine
prevents catching
and spreading the
infections
HOW LONG DOES THE JAB
WORK FOR?
The Royal College of GPs says if
you’ve had two doses you won’t
need another one. But if you’ve had
only one you will need one more.
I WAS NEVER VACCINATED AS
A CHILD. DO I NEED IT NOW?
It depends on whether you were
exposed to these infections as a
autism and refuse to immunise their
children.
Studies have repeatedly refuted
this claim, which was based on a
paper by former gastroenterologist
Andrew Wakefield. The paper,
published in The Lancet in 1998,
suggested that the combined MMR
child which would lead to natural
immunity.
The MMR vaccine was
introduced into the UK in 1988, as
an addition to the individual
measles vaccine introduced in 1968,
so anyone born before then may
not be fully vaccinated.
Professor Helen StokesLampard, chair of the Royal
College of GPs, says: “We would
urge anyone over 16 who hasn’t
had the vaccine to get immunised.
The vaccine is also freely available
to patients who have had the MR
jab, those who have only had
single-antigen vaccines, or
patients coming from abroad who
have no evidence of having the
full dose.”
Daily Express GP Dr Rosemary
Leonard adds: “It’s a good idea to
get this done if you haven’t had it.
Quite a few young adults didn’t get
the vaccine when scaremongering
about MMR was at its height or
they had unlicensed single vaccines
which may not have worked.”
vaccine was linked to autism and
bowel disease. It was retracted 12
years later and the data has since
been proved to be fatally flawed
both scientifically and ethically by the
General Medical Council.
Dr Wakefield was struck off the
GMC register.

WHERE CAN I GET IT?
Check whether your GP will give
it to you for free. According to NHS
Choices website the MMR vaccine
can be given on the NHS to adults
who may need it.
However if you are in a hurry you
may find it more convenient to pay
for the vaccine. Last week high
street chain Superdrug announced
it is offering the vaccination in its
health clinics to those aged 18 and
over who haven’t been vaccinated.
The jab is available at £55 per
dose, and two doses are
recommended to give heightened
protection. Ideally the course
should be completed at least two
weeks before you go away.

Once a disparity is discovered,
it can be easy to use it as a
reason for aches and pains,
particularly back, hip and knee
problems, but in reality a
difference of around 1cm is
unlikely to be the basic
underlying cause, although it
could make an existing problem
more troublesome.
Special orthotic insoles which
you can insert into your shoes to

your arteries are narrowed
by fatty deposits, it is very
difficult to widen them again.
Unlike water pipes that can be
descaled, it’s just not possible to
remove fatty deposits from blood
vessels as this would involve
damaging the vessel wall.
Inserting tiny metal stents can
help keep blood flowing where a
small portion of an important
artery is dangerously narrowed,
for example, in the coronary
arteries that supply the heart or
in one of the main blood vessels
supplying the legs.
But when a longer section of
an artery is narrowed, the only
way of improving the blood
supply is with a bypass
operation.
Once arteries are narrowed,
the best approach is to prevent
the problem getting any worse.
This means not smoking,
keeping blood pressure to a
normal level, keeping blood
cholesterol levels down (which
nearly always means taking
statins), eating a very healthy
diet, taking regular exercise,

I recently suffered the

But my son realised

rarely hear from many of those
suffering because, often through
embarrassment, it’s a condition
we prefer to keep to ourselves.
Chronic stomach problems
aren’t simply a nuisance, they
can take the fun out of life as
we struggle to cope and keep
them hidden.
And they don’t just occur
in later life. Joanne
O’Brien, 51, was
diagnosed with a
gastrointestinal disorder
10 years ago. Her
symptoms left her
uncomfortable for
much of the time and
embarrassed as she
saw things crumble
around her.
“Basically everything
and anything has been
affected,” she says. “My
lifestyle, my finances, my
marriage and my hobbies. I
was a chartered town
planner but lost my job with
By George Nichols
Birmingham City Council as a
direct result of my symptoms
which led to frequent absences
from work.
“My digestive discomfort has
impacted on my relationships.
I’ve been unable to go on long
car journeys, go swimming with
my son or walk the dog.
“I own a horse but I stopped
riding due to the fear of
suddenly feeling unwell.”
Joanne’s doctor prescribed
codeine and she has also tried
digestive aids such as cynara
artichoke, chromium picolinate,
and acidophilus with pectin.
Nothing really worked though
and she was prescribed
anti-depressants to help her
cope.
Says Joanne, who lives near
Bromsgrove in the West
Midlands: “The antidepressants
helped relieve anxiety attacks
and depression as a result of the
condition and its impact on my
life.”
What they didn’t do, of
course, was help sort out the
digestive problems. And then a
friend recommended Silicolgel,

Stomach pain

Coats the stomach and upper gastrointestinal
tract with a protective lining of silicic acid gel
The lining acts ‘like a Magnet’ attracting irritants,
toxins and pathogens and binds them to the gel
During this process the silicolgel particles
also adsorb excess acidity and gases

taken orally, which coats the
stomach lining, trapping toxins
and irritants, allowing them to
be swept away naturally.
“I’ve tried natural products
before and although they
sometimes help initially, they
haven’t worked for more than a
week or two, so I was rather
sceptical about Silicolgel. I have
taken it for nearly three years
now and it has alleviated all the
symptoms… stomach pain,
abdominal pain and flatulence.
“All aspects of my life have
improved, with only the
occasional bout of digestive
disruption – but definitely not
as drastic as previously
experienced.”
Travelling was a problem
before but now Joanne regularly
makes cross-country trips to
Hull to visit family, confident
the trip won’t be a disaster.
She also now has a job as a
stable yard manager and is
learning to relax in the
knowledge that Silicolgel has
turned her life around.
INFORMATION: Silicolgel, £8.29
(200ml) or £18.49 (500ml), is
available from LloydsPharmacy
and Tesco.
“Silicolgel has made me feel
much better about myself. I
have told lots of people that
they should try it. I take it for
a few weeks, then stop and
if I feel my stomach is upset
again I start taking it again.”

D
uring the Troubles,
broadcasters found ways
around the reporting
restrictions that didn’t
quite do the job. Sinn
Féin men were dubbed
over with their exact words still
broadcast, via the voices of actors.
As a viewer, the device made you
acutely aware of the restriction and
also how weird it seemed to see
Gerry Adams talking and someone
else’s voice coming out.
As far as paying attention to the
content of what Adams was saying,
I’m not sure many people did and
in light of that, I guess the
Government got what it wanted
and the broadcasters didn’t.
They’re also not getting quite
what they’re after in Britain’s
Cocaine Epidemic (Channel 5),
many of whose contributors are

on last
night’s TV
sporting papier-mâché face masks,
or home-assembled concoctions of
ski hats and sunglasses.
Even when you’re watching an
alleged kingpin like Grant packing
up blocks of the illegal powder in
his kitchen, it’s quite hard to take
him seriously. Then again, it’s hard
to take many of the contributors
seriously, whatever they’ve got on
their faces. Club promoter Tommy
Mac, entirely undisguised, invited
the cameras to what seemed to be a
drug-fuelled 62nd birthday party.
“I’m on the magic powder,”
Tommy said. ‘Which is called the
Devil’s Dandruff. I call it Milly
Molly.” Later on, his face having
gone a sort of emergency-red
colour, he waved a proud hand
around the room and said, “Birds,
cocaine and sniff.”
If you were left confused as to the
name of the drug concerned, rest
assured, you were never as
confused as Tommy Mac. Equally
in need of help and possibly a crash
course in economics, was the
enterprising young drug dealer
making hundreds of pounds a night
selling his product on the streets of
ultra-hip East London.
His ambition, he said, was to
“flood the block” which if you
understood anything about the

Transport: British Airways: 100 Years In
The Sky, 9pm, Channel 5
Statistics indicate that of all the UK
airlines British Airways has the largest
fleet and only easyJet carried more
passengers than it in 2017. This
two-part documentary charts the
history of the airline from the first flight
in 1919. It begins with the early years
of passenger air travel, and looks at
the first companies and passengers
who braved open cockpits, wicker
chairs and no on-board toilets. As well
as being an interesting look back at
the development of airline travel this
two-parter will make you so grateful
for all the comfortable features that
are now on board a plane next time
you settle down for a flight to one of
the multitude of destinations that have
been brought within reach.
largely wasted in last night’s Art
on the BBC: The Genius of
Leonardo da Vinci (BBC4),
although the clips she introduced
went back a few decades.
It was interesting to see how the
good old mind-improving BBC had
struggled valiantly to do art
documentaries in black and white
in the Sixties.
From broadside attacks on the
Mona Lisa on a 1981 Arena
programme to headmasterly
complaints about Da Vinci’s
character flaws to some
stomach-flippingly unnecessary
autopsies, it was clear, indeed,
that the BBC’s arts people had
made a lot of programmes about
this 16th-century visionary.
That’s a good thing because it
doesn’t look like they’re making
many more.

But the prize for Drug Dunces of
the Night went to students Ollie

to order drugs for a big night out
and forgot to be in when the
postman called. Sourly, Phil went to
the sorting office at 7am the next
morning, his jiffy bag of party
powder mocking him as the dawn
broke. We can only hope he sniffed
it all and cleaned that squalid
kitchen he shared with Ollie.
It’s rare these days to find a
programme on BBC4 that isn’t a
repeat, often of something not that
old. More depressingly, the channel

to be new but are just cobbled

entering their town into
‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’,
the entry level scheme of
Bloom. It is a grassroots
campaign which is meant
to be a gentle introduction
to the main competition,
but this team of Bloomers
is taking on three daunting

aim to tackle overgrown

In the latest instalment of this inspiring series, Davina

love to become a published author. Plus, schoolboy
Aleks Dimitrov (above) with dreams of becoming a

a live webcam chat between father and daughter.
Although a tech-millionaire, this act of stupidity does
not exactly endear him to Stephanie’s protective dad
as he makes it his mission to destroy his little girl’s
relationship and protect her from the foul-mouthed
playboy’s wild ways and lacklustre approach to life.
Comedy, starring Bryan Cranston and James Franco.

You won’t believe how
tiny and discreet the
new Nanopop digital
hearing aid is…
That’s why we’re giving 300 samples* away FREE!
Wearing a hearing aid used to
be a big deal. But not anymore.
Thanks to the amazing tiny Nanopop.
Revolutionarily designed to sit
comfortably inside your ear without
blocking it – Nanopop is now the
world’s most invisible custom fit digital
aid. It’s true. Simply pop the Nanopop
CAN
YOU
SEE IT?
Nanopop sits snuggly in your ear
canal - view it from any angle & it’s
almost impossible to see!
Pop it in!
Pop it out!
You won’t believe how you can hear so
much more clearly and naturally again...
nor how easy and comfortable it is to wear!
“
It’s tru ly a mi rac le
and we can no t tha nk you
ck
eno ugh for giv ing us ba
oy
enj
to
s
ou r live
in your ear and ask someone to view
your ear from any angle: front, behind
or sideways on. We guarantee they
won’t be able to see the Nanopop from
any angle whatsoever!
3 X’S THE POWER
What the Nanopop lacks in size it more
than makes up for in cutting edge
performance. If you already wear a
hearing aid you’ll be amazed at just
how brilliantly the latest Voice Intel
software zooms in on speech clarity
and filters out background noise in
busy environments – making it so
much easier to follow conversations
without effort. And this is because the
Nanopop uses multi-core 16 channel
processing which is THREE TIMES
more powerful than previous systems.
So you get a higher quality sound with
smooth seamless transitions in different
surroundings.
HEAR TV/RADIO AGAIN
Not only does the Nanopop have
InVision Directionality which analyses
and selects the correct programme for
your specific needs but there are even
special TV and music memory settings
to maximise your sound quality and
listening pleasure.

Home Office mandarins to
blame for Windrush furore
NOW that Amber Rudd has paid
the price we must seriously
question the Home Office’s fitness
for purpose.
The Windrush affair is clearly a
failure of administration, not of
policy, for which Rudd would
rightly be accountable.
Yet the senior officials who are
responsible will escape scot-free
and glide away serenely into their
massive salaries, knighthoods and
huge pensions. This swamp
definitely must be drained.
John Green,
Reading, Berks
Spectre of Abbott as Home
Secretary does not add up
IT was inevitable Amber Rudd
would have to offer her resignation
after the recent disclosures had
been made known.
The position of Home Secretary
has been described as one of the
great offices of state. How ironic
that if Jeremy Corbyn and his crew
should occupy Downing Street this
highly esteemed position could be
held by Shadow Home Secretary
Diane Abbott.
I would have thought that having
a basic knowledge of maths would
be a minimum requirement needed
to hold this important post.
Obviously I was wrong.
John Hearn,
Rainham, Kent
Labour have big questions
to answer over this fiasco
AS regards the Windrush fiasco,
shouldn’t someone be asking
Labour why they didn’t do
anything about it during their 13
years in power?

Rip-off hospital parking
charges must be scrapped
GOOD to see the Daily Express
still fighting on hospital parking
fees (“End the hospital parking
racket that is a £174m ‘tax on the
sick’”, April 30).
People miss appointments
because they are unable to afford
the charges.
One way to police it would be to
have staff checking records of
visits, then they are free.
Benefits refusals play a role in
this, as well as a Blue Badge policy.
Some conditions should
automatically warrant free
parking, such as progressive,
long-term conditions.
Keep up the great work.
Gary Martin,
Walthamstow, Gtr London
Fees implemented to stop
drivers taking us for a ride
WHAT seems to have been
overlooked is the reason hospital
car parking charges were
introduced in the first place.
People working in city and town
centres were parking their cars for
free at hospitals and catching the
bus to avoid the extortionate
parking charges there.
So until a remedy can be found
to stop this happening again there
is no point in making parking free
at hospitals.

Letter of the day
Rudd hounded out
by Labour zealots
and liberal media
101 years old and still a
man for all sonnets...
G
THE elation among Labour Party activists who helped
bring down Amber Rudd will be short lived (“May in
crisis as Rudd quits”, April 30).
It was obvious when the liberal media worked to ensure
her resignation that the entire Windrush scandal was a
well set up ploy designed to get rid of a Home Secretary
who wanted to fulfil the wishes of the British public and
control Britain’s borders, particularly after Brexit.
Labour politicians will celebrate for now but in short
order will face again the question of what immigration
policy they will present to the public.
They will be forced to explain why so many of them
want continued open borders and why so many are
angling for an amnesty on illegal immigration.
It will also become clear that the unknown number of
Windrush deportees, plus all those Caribbean people now
worrying about their citizenship status, were pawns in a
much bigger game.
Philip Duval,
Stretford, Gtr Manchester GONE: Former Home Secretary Amber Rudd

Stanley Skupien says he wants to
present the medal to his seven year
old son as, “It would make him so
proud of me”.
More likely he would be ashamed
to have a father who is a cheat.
Some role model.
We don’t need people like that in
this country.

Bob Jarvis,

SO to all Donald Trump doubters,
this President is about to bring
peace to a very large area of the
world (“Trump to meet Kim as
Korea closes nuke site”, April 30).

say he is not a politician but a man
immigration.
In the small market town where I
live in the last year alone seven
housing estates have been, or are
being, built. The last hospital was
built in South Cheshire nearly 50
years ago and I have not seen any
new schools built since I came to
live here 39 years ago.
It is shameful the way members
of the Windrush generation have
been treated and this must be
corrected (“Boris offers amnesty
for 700k illegals”, April 25).
But the current level of
immigration must be stopped and
illegals deported now.

ARE BARMY ARMY RIGHT TO DITCH ENGLAND FLAG?
ENGLAND’S Barmy
Army cricket fans who
follow their side around
the world are the most passionate
supporters in the game (“Barmy!
PC row as cricket’s fan army axes
England flag”, April 30).
It’s their logo and they can do
what they want with it. As a
lifelong cricket fan I think it looks
great, modern and current.
They’ve kept the colours
associated with the team, it still
has that wonderful home-made feel
about it and I think it will appeal to
cricket fans from all corners of the
globe. Change isn’t always a bad
thing, you know.
John Everett,
Bristol
Yes
WHAT kind of fans don’t
wave their country’s flag
while supporting their
national team? It’s no wonder they
call themselves the Barmy Army.
They’re meant to be cheering on
England, not Barmy Army Land.
Every other country you can
think of is proud of its national flag,
except it seems the self-appointed
guardians and cheerleaders of
English cricket.
It all seems a bit self-serving, like
they’re their own brand now and
want to market their new logo.
And anyway, it feels like the
decision has been made for
politically correct reasons.

Ten things you never knew about... May The month that begins today, not the Prime Minister.
1. The month may have been named for the Greek
fertility goddess Maia or it may be from the Latin
“maiores” (elders) while June is “iuniores” (youth).
2. According to an old superstition, washing your
face in dew on May 1 cures pimples and freckles.
3. Another superstition said that it was unlucky to
buy a broom or wash a blanket on May 1.
4. Among other things, May is National Walking
Month, National Share A Story Month, Action On
Stroke Month and Zombie Awareness Month.
5. May is the only month of the year which has
never seen the death of a US President.
identity before voting has my
absolute support (“Proving identity
to vote slammed as another
Windrush”, April 28).
The postal voting system has
been shown to be open to
widespread fraud by students able
to vote in multiple places. If you
are not a criminal, then why not ID
cards? If you do not intend to vote
more than once, why is there any
objection to proving your identity?
Michael Hilder,
Weymouth, Dorset
We all just get by with a
little help from our friends
I MOST definitely agree that
friends are vital to our emotional
wellbeing and happiness (“How
friends can save us”, April 30).
There have been times when I
felt like I was at rock bottom and if
it had not been for my pals (and I
include my sister as she is my
friend too), I don’t know how I
would have got through it.
Lynne English,

WILLIAM HARTSTON
6. Nine UK Prime Ministers have had birthdays in
May, which is more than any other month.
7. May 1 has been celebrated as International
Workers’ Day since 1891.
8. The date was originally chosen to commemorate
a strike in Chicago on May 1, 1886 by workers
wanting to impose an eight-hour day.
9. An assembly of striking workers in Chicago on
May 4 ended with a bomb being thrown, with the
police responding by firing on the workers. Dozens
of labour leaders were arrested and four hanged.
10. In 1955, the Catholic Church named May 1 as
the Feast Day of St Joseph the Worker, patron
saint of workers and craftsmen.
REAT Moments in British Poetic
History No.47: Shakespeare
tries unsuccessfully to pick up a
girl on a walk in the park.
SHAKESPEARE: “Shall I compare thee
to a summer’s day?”
GIRL: “Whatchoo on about? It’s
freezin’ and it’s only the beginning of
spring anyway. What’s all this summer
nonsense you’re talkin’ about?”
W.S: “Thou art more lovely and more
temperate.”
GIRL: “Well that’ ain’t sayin’ much. If
you’d said that 10 days ago I might
have been flattered but it don’t take
much to be more temperate than the
weather we’ve been having recently.
I’d call it damning with faint whatsit.”
W.S: “Rough winds do shake the
darling buds of May.”
GIRL: “Yeah, well, I’d agree with you
on that one, unless you’re trying to
blame Theresa May for the bad
weather on top of everything else.
When you say ‘darling buds’, do you
mean the former Home Secretary? Is
‘darling bud’ rhyming slang for ‘Amber
Rudd’ then? She’s been shaken a lot
this past week and now she’s been
stirred too.”
W.S: “And summer’s lease hath all
too short a date.”
GIRL: “D’you mean her lease on the
Home Office? She was there for almost
two years, you know. That was quite
long enough for her to have found out
what was going on, don’t you think? Or
are you asking me out for a short
date? That’s a bit mean, innit?”
W.S: “Sometime too hot the eye of
heaven shines…”
GIRL: “Well it’s certainly not shining
too hot today. Or are you just
suggesting that things got too hot for
Amber and she turned from Amber to
red and had to stop being Home
Secretary, gettit?”
W.S: “…and often is his gold
complexion dimmed.”
GIRL: “Nah, you lost me there.
What’s this gold complexion? D’you
mean Tony Blair or is it Donald Trump
you’re referring to, though I’d have
thought he is more orange than gold?”
W.S: “And every fair from fair
sometime declines, By chance, or
nature’s changing course, untrimmed.”
GIRL: “Oh is there a fair on? Though
if it’s declined, then I think I’ll skip it
and go for a haircut. My hair’s a bit
untrimmed, as you say.”
W.S: “But thy eternal summer shall
not fade, Nor lose possession of that
fair thou ow’st.”
GIRL: “You still on about that
summer stuff? But how can I have a
haircut without losing possession of
my hair, which is a mousey brown not
fair anyway?”
W.S: “Nor shall death brag thou
wand’rest in his shade, When in eternal
lines to Time thou grow’st.”
GIRL: “Death? Are you threatenin’
me? And what do you mean grows’t?
Are you suggestin’ I’m getting fat?
Gerroff or I’ll call the police.”
W.S: “So long as men can breathe, or
eyes can see, So long lives this, and
this gives life to thee.”
GIRL: “Oh, so now you’re saying’ that
my life depends on men, are you? Well
you’re a proper little Harvey Weinstein
aren’t you? You theatricals are all the
same. I’m off.”

Peach muffins
Muffins are all delicious but when made with peaches – or nectarines – they are even
nicer. Tinned versions can be used if fresh aren’t available. Makes 16.
INGREDIENTS
375g plain flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon salt
300ml vegetable oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten
350g caster sugar
340g peaches – peeled, stones
removed and chopped
METHOD
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/180C
fan assisted, gas mark 6.
2) Lightly grease 16 muffin cups,
or line with paper cases.
3) In a large bowl, mix the flour,
cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda
and salt.
4) In a separate bowl, mix
the oil, eggs and sugar.
5) Stir the oil mixture into the
flour mixture just until moist. Fold
in the peaches and then spoon the
mix into the prepared muffin cups.
6) Bake for 25 minutes in the
preheated oven, until a skewer
inserted in the centre of a muffin
comes out clean.
7) Cool for 10 minutes before
turning out onto wire racks to
cool completely.

Tasty ‘fast food’

P
CONVENIENCE FOOD: Oakhouse deliver ready meals with a home-cooked taste
ensioner John
Pritchard got into the
swing with Oakhouse
ready meals and has never
looked back. The 82-yearold widower is as active as
they come – but prefers to be
active on the golf course rather
than in the kitchen. Now he’s
happy to pop one of Oakhouse’s
frozen dinners in the microwave
for a meal that has all the taste
and comfort of home cooking,
while using his time fruitfully.
“I just choose whatever I fancy
from the freezer and it’s ready a
few minutes later and then I’m off
out for my regular golf or
pétanque, or even a trip to hear a
big band with friends, instead of
being stuck in the kitchen,” says
John, from Bourne End in
Buckinghamshire.
“After I lost my wife, Jill, several
years ago I tried to stay active
and keep on enjoying life to the
full but, having been lucky
enough to enjoy many years of
delicious home-cooked food, the
one thing I struggled with was
preparing meals for myself.
“Shopping for one is tricky and
as cooking has never been a
particular passion of mine I was
limited to the few dishes that I
Meals service frees up leisure
time, says GEORGE NICHOLS
knew how to cook. What I really
missed was my wife’s cooking,
especially my favourites like a
great roast dinner or curry – I
knew I’d never take the time to
cook those things for myself.”
A
nd then a relative told
John about Oakhouse,
which offers a huge array
of dishes and delivers them to
your door.
He says: “When I discovered
Oakhouse it opened up a whole
new world for me. Not only am I
looking forward to mealtimes
again but I’m spending less time
in the kitchen and more time
doing the things I love.
“The quality of the food has
really bowled me over. It’s all
made from proper ingredients
and you really do get that lovely
home-cooked taste.”
John also enjoys the Oakhouse
Mini Meals range of smaller
portions.
“My appetite isn’t as big as it
was but now I can have things
like lasagne whenever I like,” he
says. “The best part is, it’s all
delivered and my delivery man,
Jake, even puts it away for me in
the freezer.”
The Oakhouse range features
more than 350 traditionally
cooked meals, soups, sides and
desserts, all freshly frozen – and
the spring/summer range is out
now. ​From a classic roast dinner
to sweet and sour chicken, there’s
plenty for all tastes and appetites.
What’s even better is that main
meals start from £2.85. That’s
enough to put a spring in your
step whether you’re on the golf
course or not…

Restore the balance of power
By George Nichols
supplements are equal. Magnesium is
difficult to absorb as it is not watersoluble and must be bound to another
compound to work.
And most supplements use
magnesium oxide, the most common
form of magnesium although it only
has an absorption rate of four per
cent.
However magnesium from diet
supplement expert FutureYou
contains magnesium lactate which is
derived from lactic acid and is highly
soluble, bringing an absorption rate of
45 per cent, 10 times higher.
Consuming large amounts of
magnesium over a long period of time
can affect our digestive system. By
taking a supplement containing
magnesium lactate it is possible to
absorb greater amounts of magnesium
quicker while actually consuming less,
which is better for our bodies.
A standard magnesium supplement
contains 375mg of magnesium oxide;
four per cent absorption rate means
absorbing 15mg of magnesium.
Magnesium+ from FutureYou contains
56mg of magnesium lactate – a 45 per
cent absorption rate means absorbing
25.2mg of magnesium.
Not only does it mean absorbing 33
per cent more magnesium against a
standard magnesium oxide
supplement, the consumption of
magnesium is 88 per cent less to
achieve that level.
And FutureYou’s Magnesium+ is
simple to take, just one tablet each
day. It’s time to light up your body for
the summer now.
W
e all feel like we need an
energy boost from time to
time. With the speed of
modern life it is no wonder
we can often feel drained of
energy. The challenge is
how do we overcome this feeling.
We can all help ourselves with
exercise and a sensible dietary regime,
but we really need more than that to
put us back on full power.
Something that can be a big help is
magnesium, an essential mineral that
helps the body turn food into energy.
It is known to reduce tiredness and is
vital for our everyday health,
supporting hundreds of chemical
reactions in our system.
It’s present in everyday items such
as green vegetables along with health
treats such as pumpkin seeds yet
studies show that fewer than half of us
consume the recommended daily
amount.
And no matter what we eat, the big
challenge is to absorb enough of it to
do us good.
The best way to guarantee a
regular level of magnesium is with a
daily supplement – yet even that
isn’t as simple as it sounds. Not all
Magnesium is known
to reduce tiredness
and is vital for our
everyday health

Sainsbury’s soars on
back of ‘bold gamble’
By David Shand
SAINSBURY’S shares soared yesterday
as investors cheered its proposed
£14billion merger with Asda to create
Britain’s biggest supermarket.
A deal to unite the country’s second
and third biggest grocers to overtake
market leader Tesco was hailed by
Sainsbury’s chief executive Mike Coupe
as a “transformational opportunity to
create a new force in UK retail”.
Coupe, who two years ago oversaw the
£1.4billion acquisition of Argos owner
Home Retail Group, argued the tie-up
with Asda would create a “more dynamic
and resilient” business.
He played down fears of job losses and
insisted no stores would be closed, with
the bulk of estimated £500million cost
savings coming from better buying terms
and property, including the roll-out of
Argos stores in Asda supermarkets.
Coupe said: “It has never been more
competitive and customers have more
choices than ever. Whether it is the rise
of the discounters or digital technologies
giving customers access to markets
there are significant structural changes.
This gives both organisations an opportunity to compete in that environment.”
Asda’s US parent Walmart will receive
nearly £3billion in cash and will hold
42 per cent of the combined business,
which will have over 2,800 stores across
the UK and Ireland and more than
COST SAVINGS: Mike Coupe, Judith McKenna (Walmart) and Roger Burnley (Asda)
330,000 staff. The deal, expected to be
fast-tracked to an in-depth probe by
competition regulators, is set to complete in the second half of next year.
The Competition and Markets Authority said the merger was likely to be
subject to review. Sainsbury’s brought
forward its annual results, which showed
a 1.4 per cent rise in underlying pre-tax
profit to £589million on 9 per cent higher
sales of £31.7billion. Its shares jumped
39¼p to 309p. Some analysts questioned
whether the combination would be
approved by regulators.
Peel Hunt’s Charles Hall said: “We see
no chance of it getting through the CMA
without a major dismemberment of the
combined business.”
Bernstein analyst Bruno Monteyne
said: “This is a bold gamble. The deal
could unravel acrimoniously if the CMA
sticks to its old rules and parameters.”

Trump’s fired up
Sporting legends
Dream of success
IAN
BOTHAM
and
Gareth Edwards, two
sporting icons, will be
hoping Dan’s Dream can
grab a slice of the prize
money in Sunday’s 1,000
Guineas at Newmarket.
Cricket great Botham
and Edwards, a rugby
legend, are the owners of
Dan’s Dream.
The sporting theme
continues as the filly is
trained by the former
football star
Mick
Channon.
Any of the prizemoney Dan’s Dream
pockets will go to the
Nicholls Spinal Injury
Foundation, a charity
researching a remedy for
spinal cord injuries.
“We think she’s a very
good filly,” said Channon.
“And she has a great
chance.”
Dan’s Dream, winner of
two of her three races, is
16-1 for the fillies classic,
behind Happily the 9-4
favourite.
Aidan O’Brien, the
trainer of Happily, is
also
responsible
for
Saturday’s
2,000
Guineas
favourite Gustav
Klimt, a 2-1 shot.

JUDD TRUMP set up a
sizzling Crucible quarter-final
against John Higgins before
blasting Ricky Walden for
“taking liberties”.
Trump beat Walden 13-9
in their Betfred World
Championship clash in
Sheffield after winning
the final five frames.
Trump, chasing a
first world title, will
now face four-time
champion Higgins in a
repeat of the brilliant
2011 final won 18-15 by
the Scot.
But
the
turning
point came in frame
20 with Trump trailing
9-8 in frames and 48-6 in
points as Walden took
on an ambitious red to
the middle pocket.
World No 3 Trump, who
pounced on the miss to clear
up for 9-9, said: “Ricky took
on a crazy ball and it
spurred me on. Something
inside me fired up and the
whole game turned. One ball

felt alive, and I made a really
good clearance. That was my
moment.
“It felt like a liberty, maybe
he thought the way I was
playing I wouldn’t clear up. I
didn’t think he should be
playing that against me.
“It was nice to finish with a
century break of 103 and it
was my scoring that got me
through in the end. It will be
tough against John. I will have
to play somewhere near my
best but if I play like I did at
the end I have a chance.
“The atmosphere in that
2011 final was the best I have
ever seen, and I will try and
take inspiration from that.”

has suffered from serious
back

season,

he wants, I play the shot as I
see it. If I were to comment on
every shot Judd plays then
we’d be here all day. We’ve got
different games – that’s the
way it is.
“I felt it was the shot to play.
I didn’t execute it very well
and then Judd made a great
break, so fair play to him.”
Higgins,
relishing
the
quarter-final
clash,
said:
“People have asked if Judd
should have kicked on more
since that 2011 world final but
it is difficult. Even if he hasn’t
won a world title, he has still
won multiple events every
season and that is pretty good
in this era.”
Title favourite Ding Junhui
completed a 13-4 win over
Scotland’s Anthony McGill
and two-time winner Mark
Williams became the last man
into the quarter-finals with a
13-7 win over Rob Milkins.
Williams, 43, who will play
Ali Carter, said: “I feel like a
contender.”

RUGBY UNION: AVIVA PREMIERSHIP
OVAL
FFICE
WITH NEIL SQUIRES
THE human cost of
relegation is dawning on
London Irish with the
heart about to be ripped
out of their squad.
They were already resigned
to losing All Blacks prop
Ben Franks to Northampton
and leading try-scorer Alex
Lewington to Saracens, as well
as former England hooker
David Paice to retirement.
But the bleeding is likely to
intensify after confirmation
that they will be playing
Championship
rugby
next
season, with the vultures
circling for two of the club’s
brightest prospects, Johnny
Williams and Joe Cokanasiga.
Williams, 21, a former England
Under-20s centre, is being
courted by Newcastle while
Cokanasiga, 20, a powerful wing
who has trained with England’s
senior squad this season, is
wanted
by
Bath.
The
indications are they will leave.
“We only want people in the
club who want to be here,” said
Irish boss Declan Kidney. “I
would say to young players that
a year in the Championship… if
they can’t get out of it then
maybe that is where they
should be. They need to learn
to fight their way out of it. They
can build this side into
whatever they want it to be.”
The problem with that
argument is that Williams and
Cokanasiga have already done
a year’s hard labour in the
Championship with Irish, only
for their loyalty to be rewarded
with another relegation. And
next season English rugby’s
second tier looks a much less
inviting environment.
Ealing
Trailfinders
are
investing heavily after finishing
runners-up
this
season,
Yorkshire
Carnegie
have
brought in director of rugby
Chris
Stirling
from
the
Hurricanes,
and
promoted
Coventry have signalled their
intent by signing Gloucester
wing David Halaifonua.
One year could easily become
two or more for Irish.
An advantage they do have
as they try to assemble a squad
for next season is the parachute
payment handed to them as the
Premiership’s relegated club. It
means they will get four times
as much from central funding
as the £550,000 the other
Championship clubs receive.
“It gives us a head start,” said
Irish chief executive
Brian Facer. “We
Irish fallen
stars are up
for grabs
will have conversations now we
know where our fate is, to try to
keep players within the club.
“You have to make sure you
do the job on the pitch and you
don’t do that by cutting corners.
“We’re fairly well-structured
to be able go down into the
Championship
and
come
straight back up again. We want
to be a Premiership club.”
And a London club. The
current ground rental at
Reading’s Madejski Stadium
has eight years to run
but with just 7,628 inside
on Sunday against
Saracens it was a
soulless experience
for one of the most
soulful of English
clubs. Their eyes are
on a move back to the
capital with Brentford’s
new stadium, due to be
opened in 2020, the leading
contender.
“We’re weighing up all the
options,” said Facer. “It’s
about location for us. If you
look at our history and
where the Irish connection
and population is, it is
closer to west London.
A move back would
probably give us
the audience
that
has
been lying
dormant
for
a
period of
time.”

HARRY KANE let his
right boot do the talking
with the goal to settle
Tottenham nerves and
help them on the way
to securing Champions
League qualification.
HAZELTINE HOORAY: The USA team win back the Ryder Cup two years ago
Like peas in a pod…
Bjorn plans to steal
Azinger cup formula
THE word is that Thomas Bjorn is
planning on stealing some of
America’s clothes and implementing
Paul Azinger’s pod system for the
Ryder Cup.
The system was dreamed up by the
USA’s combative captain for the 2008
contest at Valhalla after seeing a TV
documentary on the elite Navy Seals.
Adapting the Seals’ team-within-ateam approach in an attempt to
create harmony within what had
become a dysfunctional dozen,
Azinger broke his men down into
three groups of four based on
different personality types then
instructed them to practise, plan
and play together. Azinger’s army
saw off Nick Faldo’s Europe
16½-11½ to win back the trophy
that Europe had held since 2002.
After another barren period for the
USA, Davis Love revived the pod
system to similar effect at Hazeltine
two years ago.
Europe, with a more natural
togetherness, have never
previously felt the need for
military planning but Bjorn is
understood to be headed down
that path. It will be fascinating to
see who he puts together.
Azinger’s three pods
were headed ‘Aggressive’,
in which he placed
Phil Mickelson;
‘Redneck’, featuring
Jim Furyk; ‘Steady’,
including Steve
Stricker.
While two pods
translate, thankfully
there is no European
equivalent of
‘Rednecks’ so Bjorn
could go for something
like ‘Showmen’ instead.
Bjorn only has the
outline of a team at
present and one that
could change
considerably with
the points earned
TEAM BUILDING:
Bjorn could have Aggressive,
Steady and Showmen groups
By Neil Squires
between May 24 and the end of
qualification on September 2
multiplied by 1.5 to weight selection
towards in-form players.
But as things stand Tyrrell Hatton
leads the European list. Likely to start
a fight in a phonebox on the course –
sometimes with himself – he goes
into the Aggressive pod.
Then comes cool, calm and
collected Justin Rose – Steady pod
for the Olympic champion..
Next comes Jon Rahm –
Aggressive, definitely – and Ross
Fisher, a Steady guy.
Move across to the world list and
Bjorn’s sorting hat could put Rory
McIlroy into Showman, or perhaps
Aggressive in Ryder Cup week.
Then there is Tommy Fleetwood
who, with his flowing locks and easy
charm lends himself towards
Showman, even if the pulse rate of
Europe’s No1 is Steady. Then
you have Sergio Garcia –
Showman – and Alex Noren,
Steady as you like.
Say Bjorn chooses Ian
Poulter – currently one place
outside an automatic spot on
the world list – as one of his
four captain’s picks. Then
he could have:
Aggressive – Hatton,
Rahm, McIlroy;
Showman – Fleetwood,
Garcia, Poulter; Steady
– Rose, Fisher, Noren.
Azinger’s final
trick in 2008 was to
allow each pod to
pick their final
member. If Bjorn
did the same, who
would each pod
go for? Steady,
with Rose, would
surely go for
Henrik Stenson.
The Showmen may well plump
for Paul Casey. Aggressive?
How about Thomas Pieters?
That is one decent European
team. Maybe Azinger’s master
plan has something to it after all.
But it was another stuttering
display by the England talisman
who has suffered so much
criticism recently he has lost all
of his natural fluency in attack.
Sometimes, with hindsight, it
is easy to wonder if you might not
have been better just to have
kept your mouth shut.
Since Kane claimed ‘that’ goal
against Stoke, the one which had
initially been credited to Christian
Eriksen, he has been mocked
by the FA and his own players’
union. At the same time,
Tottenham had not won a
game and were unceremoniously
dumped out of the FA Cup.
Kane’s scoring form had taken,
relative to his own high standards,
something of a dive and Mauricio
Pochettino was even dropping
hints about leaving in the
summer. Of course, despite some
of the criticism thrown Kane’s,
none of that was his fault.
Nevertheless, with Chelsea
creeping to within two points of
the final Champions League
place, it was time for Tottenham
to get a grip and march with their
heads held high towards their
new stadium safe in the
knowledge that Europe’s elite
would be visiting them there.
And they could not have been
handed a better start last night.
Kieran Trippier’s 16th-minute
cross was into the danger area
but should have been claimed
comfortably by Watford keeper
Orestis Karnezis.
Instead he fumbled, Eriksen
pounced to flick the ball to Dele
Alli who, under the gaze of Gareth
Southgate, kept his composure
to steer the ball into the net.
Against a team who have not
scored on their travels since
January 2, Tottenham should
have been up and running. But
still they stuttered.
They had keeper Hugo Lloris to
thank for saving sharply from
Andre Gray after the Watford
striker was fed in beautifully by
ex-Tottenham midfielder Etienne
Capoue and some good work
from Will Hughes almost put in
Abdoulaye Doucoure as Spurs
found themselves pressed back.
Twice more before the break
the France goalkeeper was at it
again, saving low from Richarlison
and then racing from his area
to tackle Doucoure 30 yards from

Spurs
FINISHING
SCHOOL:
Dele Alli gives
Spurs the lead
goal. Increasingly it looked like
Tottenham were going to need a
second goal no matter who
claimed the credit.
It took just three minutes after
the restart. Alli’s pass to Son
Heung-Min was squared across
the area, went through to
Trippier and his return ball was
side-footed in by – no question
about it – that man Kane.
In the first half, Kane had failed
to jump at all for one Eriksen
cross and even in the build-up to
his goal, he had slipped and fallen
in an undignified manner on his
backside.
Still it was a strange sort of a
game. Alli tried to convince
referee Michael Oliver he was not
being fouled by staying on his
feet and within seconds of coming
on as a substitute, Victor
Wanyama was booked for planting
his inner thigh squarely on to
the studs of Richarlison. Jan
Vertonghen headed against the
post and when the ball bounced
Cazorla eyeing return
CAZORLA: Optimistic
ARSENAL
midfielder
Santi Cazorla hopes to
be able to play again
before the end of the
season.
The 33-year-old has
not featured for the
Gunners since October
2016 because of injury,
which included needing
surgery
an
Achilles
tendon problem and a
skin graft from his arm.
At one point he
feared having his foot
amputated.
Cazorla, though, has
been
stepping
up
his rehabilitation and
trained on the Emirates
Stadium pitch ahead
of the first leg of the
Europa League semifinal against Atletico
Madrid last week’.
It remains to be seen
whether Cazorla, signed
from Malaga in August
2012, will return to
action over the closing
weeks.
As
part
of
his
rehabilitation, he was
back yesterday at Real
Oviedo, where he was a
youth-team player. “I’ve
still got some way to go
because
after
being
sidelined for 18 months,
everything has to be
done in its own time,”
said Cazorla. “But the
sensations I have keep
getting better and I’m
feeling optimistic.
“The objective is to
play some part with the
team before the season
ends, but we have to
take things carefully.
“After being out for so
long it will take a while
to get back into form.
It’s a real struggle.”

have liked to. I could have scored
a couple more but I feel sharp.
“Last year I got 29 goals, so I
would like to try to beat that but
we will see what happens. I’m just
trying to get to the 30 mark.”
Manager Mauricio Pochettino
admitted that Kane is still below
par but expects him to be firing
by the time the World Cup comes
around. “He needs to improve his
performance still but I am happy,”
said Pochettino.
“150 games, 105 goals, what
more can we say? Fantastic
striker! It wasn’t a great period
for him the last few weeks – he’s
human like anyone. But with the
help of everyone he’s doing well.
“He’s a strong guy, physically
and mentally. I am sure he will
perform for us and no doubt
arrive in very good condition for
the World Cup.”
Victory means Tottenham can
clinch Champions League football
this weekend if they beat West
Brom and Chelsea fail to beat
Liverpool. It is also the second
season in a row they will definitely
finish above Arsenal.
Watford still need a win to be
sure of safety and coach Javi
Gracia admits to being frustrated.
“I’m sure we can get more
points and more goals,” he said.
Future looking good to Young
YOUNG: Reasons for hope
ASHLEY YOUNG says
Manchester United have
put down a marker for
next season by beating
all of their top-six rivals
in the past two months.
Sunday’s
last-gasp
2-1 win against Arsenal
followed victories over
Chelsea, Liverpool and
Manchester City in the
Premier League and
came a week after FA
Cup semi-final success
against Tottenham.
Young
is
taking
further encouragement
from the fact United
By Richard Tanner
came from behind in
three of those games.
But he admits Jose
Mourinho’s team need
to be more consistent
against
lower
clubs
to challenge neighbours
City next season.
United
could
still
reach 86 points, which
would
have
been
enough to win the title
in previous campaigns,
but surprise defeats by
Huddersfield, Newcastle
and West Brom meant
they were unable to
keep pace with City.
“We have put down a
marker against the topsix clubs but we need
more,” said Young. “We
have to win more games
than we have done.
“Around
Christmas
we were drawing games,
there were some late
goals against us, and
when you look back at
those games it could
have been different.
“If we can finish with
the number of points we
know we can get, then
in another season that
total would have won us
the league.”
But Pablo Zabaleta
warns that City will only
get stronger. The former
City defender witnessed
at close quarters the
runaway
champions’
quality on Sunday when
Pep Guardioa’s team
thrashed his West Ham
4-1. “I’m sure they will
bring a few players in
this summer,” Zabaleta
said. “The future for
City is very bright for
the next few years.”

REPORTS
COOLING OFF:
Buvac and
Klopp oversee a
Liverpool
training session
last month
JURGEN
KLOPP’S
approach to football
could often be described
as playing with fire, and
more often than not it is
the opposition who get
burned.
But the decision to allow his
trusted No 2 Zeljko Buvac, the
man he describes as “the
brain”, to step away from his
duties just as they reach the
critical point of their season
could be his riskiest move yet.
The Bosnian, who first met
Klopp when the pair played
together at Mainz, will have
nothing to do with the first
team for the remainder of the
season and looks to be heading
towards the exit door at
Anfield.
The club said yesterday that
the coach was stepping back
from the front line because of
“personal reasons”, declining
to add flesh to the bones and
adding that Buvac, 56, remains
a Liverpool employee.
However,
insiders
have
suggested he has become an
increasingly distant presence
around the first team and
coaching set-up over the past
few weeks, and it looks as
though a relationship that has
produced huge success in both
Germany and England could
have run its course.
Klopp and Buvac have had a
close working bond since their
playing days, famously making
a pact that whoever secured a
managerial position first out of
the two would take the other
along with them as assistant.
When Klopp was appointed
manager of Mainz in 2001, he
made good on that promise.
Theirs is said to be a strong
professional rather than close
personal relationship, but it is
a fruitful one.
At Mainz they secured
promotion to the Bundesliga
for the first time in the club’s
history in 2004, and at Borussia
Dortmund they secured backto-back titles and reached a
Champions League final, losing
to Bayern Munich. Along with

Liverpool together
in late 2015. A year
later all three were

manager’s personal
insistence, on the

enjoyed.

of
17 years in top-flight
football without the odd

But they have always

an equilibrium.
Yet the departure of the

eve of their bid to secure
a sixth European Cup
final has a finality about
it that would make
rapprochement unlikely.

becomes a different beast when he
steps out to play for real.
The Reds’ 43-goal marvel has had
an amazing first season at Anfield,
and Elmohamady hopes he will have
a Champions League winners’ medal
in his pocket by the time they meet
up for the World Cup. “It’s easy in
training against him but in a game
he turns into a different player,”
By Peter Edwards
said the Aston Villa winger. “He is
one of the best players in the
world. We are all happy for him.
“Mo-Mo is a great lad. He’s been
excellent this season. Hopefully he
can continue in the same form and
help us in the World Cup.
“He took the chance to leave
Chelsea and go away to prove
everyone wrong. And he did it at
Fiorentina and Roma then came back
to the Premier League and you see
what he can do now.” If Salah can
shine in Russia he will have a chance
of beating Cristiano Ronaldo and
Lionel Messi, who have shared the
past 10 world’s best player awards.
But Elmohamady feels Salah still
has a way to go, saying: “It’s only
one season. He’s been good at
Roma. But to reach the level of
Ronaldo and Messi, he has to do it
for seven or eight years.”
Salah meanwhile will face no
disciplinary action from the FA
after his clash with Bruno Martins
Indi during Liverpool’s goalless
draw with Stoke on Saturday.

“Barca have had a great

“But winning the

financial figures showed
they had received
