FOREIGN SEC MAULED AT No10
By TOM NEWTON DUNN
Political Editor
SUSPICIONS are mounting that Boris Johnson is
preparing to quit the
Cabinet over Brexit after
a row about his demand
for more NHS cash.
The
Foreign
Secretary
revealed in advance of yesterday?s meeting of Theresa
May?s top table he would
insist on �0million a week
more for the health service
after Britain leaves the EU.
The commitment would fulfil
his infamous referendum pledge,
which pals say he ?gets very
emotional about?.
But the stand backfired and
Boris was dealt an extraordinary
mauling at No10, leaving him
looking isolated last night.
Eight Cabinet ministers turned
on him and one source revealed:
?He got a proper bitch-slapping.?
BoJo?s serious public challenge
to the PM?s authority sparked
torrid Westminster speculation
that he is planning to one day
resign and challenge her for the
Tory crown by fighting for a
cleaner break from the EU.
One senior minister asked: ?Is
Boris preparing to flounce out of
the Cabinet?? But allies of his
last night described the resignation talk as ?nonsense?.
His Cabinet mauling, orchestrated by Mrs May, began with
loyalist International Trade Secretary Liam Fox telling him he
was wrong to have aired internal
disputes so publicly.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd
argued it was important Cabinet
members were able to trust each
other, adding: ?I?m talking to
you, Foreign Secretary.?
Transport
Secretary
Chris
Grayling backed his idea in
principle but blasted him for
bringing it up at the wrong time.
Only close ally Environment
Secretary Michael Gove offered
any substantial support but others dubbed it as ?lukewarm?.
Boris was only called to talk at
the end and then failed to bring
up a specific figure for the NHS,
leading to claims he bottled it.
Later yesterday, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt also distanced
himself from Boris?s demand.
Quizzed during a committee
hearing on where the extra
�0million a week would come
from, Mr Hunt said: ?You have to
ask the Foreign Secretary.?

for opioid painkillers and antidepressants has doubled in

Defence
cuts are
on hold
By TOM NEWTON DUNN
A NEW round of defence
cuts was suspended yesterday in a major victory
for
Defence
Secretary
Gavin Williamson.
He persuaded Theresa
May to order another
look at the finances after
a �billion hole opened
up in the MoD?s budget.
At a meeting of the
National Security Council,
the PM authorised a full
defence review to work
out how to fill it.
She also agreed to take
the Armed Forces out of
a
security
capability
review that will report in
the spring.
They were facing cuts
of
14,250
troops,
two
amphibious landing ships
and a reduction in the
number of F35 jets.
The decision came after
a Tory revolt led by
ex-Army officer turned
MP Johnny Mercer.
He said: ?Now I want to
see a positive and modern
vision of what the Armed
Forces are for.?

LEGAL BID TO MAKE PAROLE BOARD REVEAL
WHY IT AGREED TO RELEASE RAPIST WORBOYS

THE TRUTH
By TOM WELLS and STEVE HAWKES
THE Sun today launches a landmark legal bid to force the
Parole Board to reveal why it
ordered the release of black cab
rapist John Worboys.
We have joined the Daily Mail in
writing to the board and the Justice
Secretary warning them the secretive
system protecting a man linked to
up to 200 sex attacks must end.
The letter gives officials seven days to
say if they will publish the confidential
report which led to November?s decision to
free one of Britain?s worst sex offenders.
If they refuse to do so, our lawyers are
ready to launch a full judicial review
application to have the decision overturned.
The letter says the Parole Board?s report
is ?integral to the debate on a matter of
profound public interest? where there is
?overwhelming public concern?.
It warns the decision to keep the Worboys ruling secret is a breach of open justice and freedom of expression. And it
concludes: ?We require that you publish
the decision relating to Mr Worboys.?
The pervert, who has changed his name
to John Radford, was convicted of serial
sex attacks on 12 women in 2009.
He served less than nine years behind
bars before a panel of three lay members
Taxi trap . . . Worboys? black cab
? including two women ? concluded he
was safe to walk the streets.
It left many of his victims terrified,
fearing his release to a halfway house in
or near London.
Yesterday, the Sun exclusively revealed
that Worboys, 60, had been secretly moved
back to the capital at the weekend.
He was driven 200 miles south in a
prison van from HMP Wakefield to
maximum security Belmarsh jail
near Woolwich, South East London.
Victims? lawyer Richard Scorer, of
Slater & Gordon, blasted: ?This is
extremely
distressing
for
our
clients as yet again they have not
been informed about developments in
the Worboys case.
?It is an insult that they have
had to find out from the media of every
new development in this case.?
Our campaign comes as victims prepare
their own court bid to keep Worboys
behind bars. They question what has
changed since he was judged too dangerous to be moved to an open prison in 2015.
Meanwhile, in a major breakthrough, the
National Probation Service says it will recommend he is banned from London.
However, sources say the Parole Board
may limit any ban to ?exclusion zones?
around a victim?s home and place of work.
In the Commons yesterday, Tory MP Zac
Goldsmith demanded Justice Secretary
David Gauke ?do everything in his power?
to keep Worboys out of the capital.
Mr Gauke would only say he had asked
the ?relevant authorities? to ensure the
?most stringent conditions were applied?.
Also yesterday, former Cabinet minister
Priti Patel demanded dozens of cases not
put before court when Worboys was convicted in 2009 be reopened.
She said: ?Upon release he should be
immediately arrested.
?That way he could be sent
back to prison on remand before
facing justice for the other crimes
he committed and has so far got
away with.?

FRESH SEX
CLAIM QUIZ
By MIKE SULLIVAN, Crime Editor
A WOMAN has told cops she was
sexually assaulted by John Worboys
in 1997 ? five years before his first
known attack in 2002.
The new allegation potentially
shines fresh light on the scale of
his offending and could keep him
behind bars.
Detectives plan to question the extaxi driver in jail about the claim.
A source said: ?If police quickly
charge him with the new offence, he
could be kept inside.?
Several women are said to have
made new allegations against Worboys, 60, since the Parole Board
announced he should be released.
The Crown Prosecution Service
said: ?We are aware of the new
allegation and providing early investigative advice.?

MAY?S ?BOILED RABBITS? FEEL THE
HEAT.. AND BOJO & CO ARE LURKING
SAYS
Darkest
hour?
Clean getaway
IN a world changing at the speed of light
why would Britain submit forever to the
stranglehold of EU trading rules and stay
shackled to a customs union?
It would be the worst possible Brexit
option. Those still suggesting it, some in
Cabinet, need their heads examined.
Why do they do it? Because ?big business? wants it. But big business, in the
shape of the CBI, has been wrong at
every key moment in the last century.
It lobbied to appease Hitler, opposed
Mrs Thatcher?s vital, liberating union
reforms, championed every suffocating
EU treaty and begged to join the euro.
Each would have been disastrous. So
would sticking close to Brussels instead
of striking out on our own.
Vast new tech corporations spring up
all the time. A firm not yet invented
may dominate the landscape in ten
years. Why, as Michael Gove says,
would we risk becoming a ?VHS economy? by bowing to the misguided
desires of our current business leaders?
Gove was unfairly pilloried after he
said Brexit voters were sick of ?experts?
getting predictions ?consistently wrong?.
He meant the CBI among others. And he
was right.
Worboys battle
IT is an affront to his many victims and all
women that John Worboys will be released
early without a single word of explanation.
That a serial sex attacker deemed too
dangerous for open prison only two
years ago and still held in a maximum
security jail is suddenly judged ?safe?.
His lenient sentence was a scandal. So
is the secrecy around a Parole Board
ruling that surely defies all reason and
must endanger women.
Britain has a right to know why this
monster is being let loose. That is why
The Sun is launching a legal battle to
make the parole findings public.
A judicial review aimed at overturning
them may follow. And if this secrecy is
within the law, the law must change.
Worboys now faces a new accusation.
We urge other women to come forward
too if they suspect this evil cab driver
attacked them. He must stay locked up.
The Government?s response to this
case has been abysmal. Victims are
being kept in the dark, even having to
learn from us about his move to London.
Justice Secretary David Gauke must act.
?Get Boris? plot
WE?VE heard it all now: Remainers clamouring for Boris Johnson to be fired for
calling for more money for the NHS.
Don?t they realise most voters think he
has a point? Do they really consider the
public too dim to spot a blatant plot to
oust the biggest Cabinet Brexiteer?
If they genuinely believe Boris is more
treacherous than their own efforts to
undermine a democratic referendum, they
really have said farewell to reality.
UNDER FIRE
. . . Mrs May
Finest
hour?
NOT for the first time, Boris
Johnson has been brutally
slapped down in Cabinet for
trying to put fire in this timid
Government?s belly.
Will it be the last?
As the PM rubbed shoulders with the
rich and powerful in Davos last night,
Westminster buzzed with speculation the
frustrated Foreign Secretary is on the
brink of resigning.
The only reason he would quit one
of the greatest of the great offices of
state would be to build a leadership
campaign from the Tory backbenches.
The latest spat erupted as BoJo
signalled plans to speak out for a
multi-billion-pound
boost
for
the
beleaguered NHS. He had the unspoken
backing of fellow Brexit-supporting
ministers who want voters to begin
reaping the promised rewards for their
2016 vote to quit the EU.
They include Health Secretary, Brexit
convert and potential leadership rival
Jeremy Hunt, who made it clear yesterday he would welcome more cash.
But before he even opened his mouth,
Boris was warned off by arch-rival Phil
Hammond, who insisted he alone is in
charge of government purse strings.
?Mr Johnson is Foreign Secretary,?
snapped the Chancellor. ?I gave the
Health Secretary an extra �illion in
the recent Budget.?
Other ministers put the boot in for
picking the wrong time and place.
Criticism should be made in private,
they muttered.
To Labour?s delight, the NHS crisis
is dominating headlines, with BBC
news bulletins filled with scenes of
patients queuing on trolleys and
in ambulances waiting for a
bed in crammed hospital
A&E wards.
But this row is over
more than just the

Churchill
ON ATTACK
. . . Boris
By TREVOR
KAVANAGH
NHS. There is mounting dismay among
ministers and MPs across all wings
of the Tory Party over Theresa May?s
lacklustre performance as PM.
The mood has soured since Christmas.
The reshuffle shambles has knocked
the wind out of an already demoralised
Downing Street.
The Government is under fire on all
fronts ? from defence cuts to the release
of black cab rapist John Worboys, from
education reform to Mrs May?s failure to
build desperately needed houses.
And, above all, on Brexit.
Extraordinary
act of rebellion
Ministers including Boris Johnson and
Michael Gove fear the PM has become a
willing
captive
of
Remainer
civil
servants who want us to stay members
of the EU in all but name.
Mrs
May
is
blamed
personally
by some ministers for the sullen
atmosphere, with the vacuum filled by
increasingly confident Jeremy Corbyn.
Her performance has been compared
adversely to wartime leader Winston
Churchill, hero of the hit movie Darkest
Hour. Significantly, it was Churchill?s
grandson, Tory squire Nicholas Soames,
who this week branded Mrs May?s
performance as ?dull, dull, dull?.
The PM has stymied attempts by
ministers to seize the initiative on
key policies where the Tories are
seen
to
be
weak,
such
as Housing Minister Sajid
Javid?s plan to speed up
planning
laws
and
build
homes where people want to
live. It was blocked because
they were on the patch of Nimby
Tory voters.
Hammond, once tipped for the chop,
has seized his chance to reassert his
grip on spending.
In an extraordinary act of rebellion,
new defence supremo Gavin Williamson
? one of Mrs May?s political prot間閟 ?
licensed Army chiefs to lash out over
his spending cuts.
The miserly defence budget has forced
generals to slash troop numbers, cut
back
on
equipment
and
impose
draconian cuts on hard-up squaddies.
Army chiefs warn Britain is exposed
to the real and present danger of
surprise offensives by superior Russian
forces spoiling for a fight under
Kremlin tyrant Vladimir Putin.
While military top brass are struggling
to make ends meet, hard-up squaddies
are facing a squeeze on welfare
payments, with allowances for orphans
rising by a miserly 75p a week.
These problems are not new. What is
unusual is the readiness of the military
high command to go on the attack
publicly and the growing murmur of
rebellion in government ranks.
Respected ex-minister Nick Boles was
the first to speak out last week,
lambasting Mrs May for leading a
Cabinet of ?boiled rabbits?.
Downing Street is rattled by claims
that the PM is dithering and indecisive.
There is disappointment that she
seems unable to take bold, imaginative
moves to seize the initiative and stand
up for Tory values against the torrent of
derision from the Labour Left.
She is safe, at least for the time being.
With Brexit negotiations reaching a
crucial phase, there is no appetite for a
damaging six-week leadership election.
For all his rivals? efforts to discredit
him as a ?buffoon?, BoJo remains the
biggest threat to Mrs May?s Downing
Street tenancy.
Brexit
is
his
trump
card.
As
negotiations enter the end game, Boris?s
lifelong ambitions depend on exactly
how he plays his hand.

?About three months ago Aled
voluntarily agreed to step away

?Aled was devastated to learn
some of his past behaviour outside the BBC had caused distress to others. He deeply regrets
this behaviour and is very sorry
for the hurt it has caused.
?Aled has given his assurance
that it will never be repeated.
Aled will now continue with his
roles at the BBC.?
The Beeb confirmed: ?Over
recent weeks the BBC has been
considering complaints about his
past behaviour.
?While the behaviour under
review was not related to his
work with the BBC, Aled recognises it was inappropriate and
caused real distress to others.
?He has apologised for this
and assured the BBC that there
will be no repeat. Aled Jones
will be resuming his radio and
television presenting roles with
the BBC over the coming weeks.?
Jones has not worked for the
BBC since October and was
removed from the Christmas
edition of cookery show The
Hairy Bikers. He continued presenting for Classic FM. The allegation by an unnamed woman
was believed to have centred on
messages and contact.
In November it was said to
have been one of 25 ?live? cases
being investigated by the Beeb.
Jones said at the time he was
sorry for ?juvenile? behaviour but
denied any inappropriate contact.

Legal shambles
double whammy
that has let down
Worboys? victims
BLACK cab rapist John Worboys will,
we are told, be subjected to tough
restrictions when he is released
imminently from prison.
This will include a nightly curfew, close
supervision by probation officers and a ban
on contacting his victims. How reassuring.
Said no one.
After all, it emerged last week that

AS the first person on stage at

Melania Trump, inset.
?My first initiative as First Lady will be

one of Melania?s campaigns. Clearly, Kristen
prefers to do her lame bullying in the open forum
of a globally watched ?entertainment? show.
13
was able to contact her from inside
prison
despite
being
under
a
restraining order.
So the notion that Worboys ? one
of Britain?s worst sex offenders ?
will be monitored effectively enough
to convince his many victims that he
is no longer a danger to the public
is utter bunkum.
They have been let down at every turn.
Let down by the initial investigation in
2009 that, despite having ?hundreds?
of potential victims, resulted in just
13 cases being brought to court,
where he was convicted of 12.
Let down by the secretive parole
board hearing that recently decided
he was eligible for release but
didn?t bother to tell the majority of
the victims, who had to hear it on
the news.
And now let down by ineffectual Justice
Secretary David Gauke, who bullishly
suggested the Government would challenge
the parole board?s decision before then
sheepishly announcing several days later
that, er, no it wouldn?t be doing that after
all. Pathetic.
Little wonder that, horrified at the
thought of their attacker being back on the
streets, two of Worboys? victims are now
launching a court challenge of their own to
try to get his release stopped.
For those not familiar with the case,
Worboys abused his position as a muchtrusted black cabbie to drug and sexually
assault
ault what is believed to be up to 100
female passengers.
The trouble is, few
children see it that way.
Particularly girls.
All they see is a man
they thought was reliable,
caring and invincible
suddenly behaving like a
mid-life
clich�
and
completely
upending
everything they hold dear
in pursuit of his own,
selfish desires.
A BLACK
DAY FOR
WOMEN
AFTER putting her name
to a common-sense letter
pointing out that not
every clumsy come-on
by a man can be classed
as sexual harassment,
the veteran actress
Catherine Deneuve has
sadly bowed to pressure
and apologised for her
stance.
Meanwhile, new Baftas
host Joanna Lumley says
she wore black at the
nominations announcement because if you
didn?t: ?You were virtually
saying, ?I am Harvey
Weinstein?. So I think
we?re all going to be in
black, everyone will be in
black out of terror.?
Sigh. It?s a rum do when
a campaign aimed at,
among other things,
freeing women from the
tyranny of sexual
harassment and assault
subjects them to the
tyranny of dressing a
certain way for fear of
being lambasted by an
outraged ?sisterhood?.
Denied day in court
It has been suggested that only a handful
of cases reached court for budgetary
reasons ? it being more expensive to
investigate further claims.
But his worried victims were assured by
police that he would be going to prison
?for a very long time?.
However, that didn?t happen. In fact, the
low number of cases put forward meant
the judge was limited in the sentence he
could hand out and, eight years later, the
parole board could only consider those
same cases when deciding whether to
release him.
So the whole shambles had the double
whammy of many of his alleged victims
being denied their day in court and the
knowledge that if their cases had been
included in the prosecution, then he would
likely have gone to prison for much longer
and wouldn?t now be packing his bags for
life on the outside.
Meanwhile, in November, two men who
committed a �0million tax fraud were
each given 11 years in prison ? three more
than a man who drugged and raped
multiple women.
It would be laughable if it wasn?t so
damned serious.

River find
tragedy
of author
daughter
By HOWELL DAVIES, Bizarre Reporter
SINGER Neil Diamond yesterday announced his retirement from touring after five decades, following his
diagnosis with Parkinson?s disease.
The Sweet Caroline hit-maker, who turns 77 today, has
cancelled the remaining dates of his 50th anniversary tour in
Australia and New Zealand on medical advice.
But the star insisted that he will
despite the debilitating condition,
which can lead to tremors, speech
impairment and mobility issues.
He told fans: ?It is with great
reluctance
and
disappointment
that I announce my retirement
from concert touring.
?I have been so honoured to
bring my shows to the public for
the past 50 years.
?I plan to remain active in
writing, recording and other projects for a long time to come.
?My thanks goes out to my loyal
and devoted audiences around
the world. You will always have
my appreciation for your support
and encouragement.?
Neil performed in the UK in
October as part of his tour, but
said the onset of Parkinson?s had
?made it difficult to travel and
perform on a large-scale basis?.
The New York-born star married his manager Katie McNeil,
46, in 2012. He has four children
from his two previous marriages.
Diamond, who has sold more
than 130million albums worldwide
and had numerous No 1 hits, is
due to receive a lifetime achievement prize at The Grammy
Awards on Sunday.
Fellow singers yesterday paid
tribute to his incredible career
and wished him well in his battle
against the disease.
Barry Manilow, 74, tweeted: ?So
so sorry to hear about the great
Neil Diamond?s illness. I?m rooting for you Neil! Fight on from
another Brooklyn boy!?
And Nancy Sinatra, 77,
added: ?Keep fighting, old
buddy. You?ve got a long

PARKINSON?S is a chronic condition
that tends to worsen over the years.
Most people who develop it are
over the age of 50 and in most
cases there?s no known cause.
While no two people experience
the disease in quite the same way,
the main symptoms are trembling,
stiff muscles and slow movements.
Muscle rigidity can make everyday tasks difficult and it can hurt.
Slow movements make it harder
to walk and to keep one?s balance,
while the trembling brings its own
challenges too.
There can also be tiredness, low
energy and mood changes, while the

patient may have trouble concentrating. Although there?s no cure,
treatment can help control the
disease and boost quality of life.
Readjustments are often necessary, especially in those for whom

understandable. But, with luck, this
huge talent will continue to satisfy

Being creative may also help

Darren Osborne, 48, exchanged
direct Twitter messages with Britain
First?s deputy leader Jayda Fransen

Around the same time, he was sent a
generic email from EDL leader Tommy
Robinson calling for a protest in the wake
of the Manchester Arena suicide bombing.
The email said: ?There is a nation within
a nation forming, just beneath the surface
of the UK. It is a nation built on violence,
hatred for the UK, and Islam. It has now
been left to us, the ordinary people of the
UK, to stand up to hate and say no more.?
Unemployed Osborne allegedly killed
Makram Ali, 51, and hurt nine others
by mowing them down with a van
outside the Finsbury Park mosque in
North London on June 19 last year.

For especially dirty
pots and pans,
sprinkle some in with
your washing-up
liquid for an extra
powerful pairing.
Sponge away
pet hair
Use damp sponge to
pull pesky pet hair
out of carpet fibres.
They create extra
grip to open jars. For
pet hair on sofas, rub
your gloved hands
over the upholstery,
plunge gloved
hands into hot water
and the hairs will float off.
Bar of soap on

Hold fabric
taut, run the
soap along front
and back of teeth. It will
lubricate zip.
Vinegar on veg
Lemon juice to

Sprinkle problem
spots with salt, then
run lemon
juice-soaked sponge
on top and rinse off
with water.
Washing-up liquid
on jewellery
Mix a squirt of this
with soda water. Let
it soak for five
minutes, then use a

MEN-0NLY FUNDRAISER EXPOSED
Host . . . David Walliams
By BEN LAZARUS
A MEN-ONLY charity
fundraiser hosted by
David Walliams has
been
accused
of
sexually exploiting its
female hostesses.
The Presidents Club bash
was held at top London
hotel the Dorchester for 360
figures from entertainment,
politics and business.
The black tie event was to
raise money for causes such
as Great Ormond Street
Children?s Hospital.
But an undercover investigation by Financial Times
journalist Madison Marriage
found the 130 hostesses ?
ordered to wear skimpy outfits ? were groped, subjected
to lewd remarks and propositioned to join attendees in
the hotel?s bedrooms.
Some claim they had men
lunge at them and shove
hands up their skirts. One
hostess alleged an attendee
exposed himself to her.
At the after-dinner bash in
a smaller room, which most
hostesses had to attend, the
undercover reporter saw a
?society figure? grab one, fill
her glass and say: ?I want
you to down that glass, rip
off your knickers and dance
on that table.?
The FT reports the agency
which hired the hostesses,
Artista, had warned one to
lie to her boyfriend about
working at the event.
The newspaper said that
agency
founder
Caroline
Dandridge told her: ?It?s a
Marmite job.
?Some girls love it, and for
other girls it?s the worst job
of their life and they will
never do it again.

But she isn?t content
with the state of

WATER MAKES A SPLASH
IT isn?t just British blokes getting
noticed as London-born SALLY HAWKINS is up for Best Actress in fantasy
romance The Shape Of Water.
Sally, inset left with co-star
OCTAVIA SPENCER, plays
a mute janitor.
Her nod was one of
13 nominations for the
film, which leads the
pack this year. It is
up for gongs including Best Picture and
Best Director for
GUILLERMO
DEL
TORO.
Elsewhere, MERYL
STREEP broke her own
record for the most Oscar acting nods
after earning her 21st for The Post.
And there was great news for former
Hollyoaks actor RACHEL SHENTON
who created and starred in
The Silent Child.
We told yesterday how
the drama was partly
inspired by Rachel?s
dad Geoff suddenly
becoming deaf.
And now it is
through to the final
five in Best Live
Action Short Film.
That would have
raised a cheer in Hollyoaks? Dog in the Pond.
ACADEMY BLANKO
SEX CLAIM FRANCO
JAMES FRANCO was the major
casualty of the #MeToo and Time?s
Up campaigns at the nominations.
The actor was omitted from the
Best Actor shortlist despite landing
a Golden Globe and Critics? Choice
Award for his role in The Disaster Artist this month.
The snub came after
Franco ? pictured right
wearing a Time?s Up badge at
the Golden Globes ? was
accused
of
sexual
misconduct in the wake of
his awards success.
Voting for the Oscars was
open from January 5
until 12 and the
sex allegations
surfaced
on
January 7. It
means that the
Academy won?t
face a repeat
of last year?s
controversy when CASEY AFFLECK
won Best Actor for his role in
Manchester By The Sea despite two
lawsuits alleging sexual harassment
resurfacing in Oscar season.
DENZEL WASHINGTON is the
main beneficiary of the Franco
omission, landing a Best Actor
nod for his role in Roman J.
Israel, Esq.
In another victory for the
campaigns, CHRISTOPHER
PLUMMER landed a Best
Supporting Actor nomination
after replacing KEVIN SPACEY
in All The Money In The World ?
making the 88-year-old the
oldest person ever
nominated for an
acting Oscar.
Spacey was axed
after allegations of
sexual misconduct.
Hollywood
is
taking notice.
THE WINNER IS..RIGHT
THE 2017 Oscars will be forever
remembered for Envelopegate, when
co-presenters WARREN BEATTY and
FAYE DUNAWAY were given the
wrong winner for Best Picture, below.
Now to make sure the mother of all
award show cock-ups doesn?t happen
again, the Academy has introduced
six new rules ? including the incredibly
straightforward: Check what?s
in the envelope before
it?s taken on stage.
There will be three
people instead of two
dealing
with
the
envelopes backstage
and the trio will be at all
of the rehearsals and
practise what to do if something does
go wrong.
Last year?s culprits, PriceWaterhouseCoopers accountants Martha
Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, have been
axed and their replacements from the
firm have been banned from using
phones or social media during the
ceremony. Academy chief Dawn Hudson has said: ?Let me
tell you, I don?t think
this error will ever
happen again.
?Everyone will be
very focused on getting that right.?
We?ll have to wait
and see . . .

At court . . . Jeff Tozer
Rolls guv
cleared
of grope
on mum
By ALEX WEST
A SENIOR manager at
Rolls-Royce was yesterday
cleared of grabbing a
mum between the legs as
she pushed a pram.
Head
of
engineering
business management Jeff
Tozer, 45, was accused of
groping the woman as he
jogged past her.
He was arrested after
she took a photo of him
running away near the
firm?s plant in Bristol in
September 2016.
Mr Tozer said he was
not paying proper attention and it was ?an innocent collision?.
A
character
witness
said: ?He is a man of
integrity who I trust.?
Mr Tozer, of Stoke
Bishop, Bristol, denied
sexual assault and was
cleared by a jury at the
city?s crown court.
Speaking after the case,
he said: ?I am pleased
but not surprised.?
Men face
eyes risk
MEN are almost twice as
likely as women to be
diagnosed with a deadly
form of eyelid cancer.
Pensioners face the biggest threat from squamous cell carcinoma as
the risk doubles for every
decade over the age of 60.
It is rarely intrusive
and not considered high
risk as it tends not to
spread ? but can be fatal
if it does reach the brain.
Docs at Moorfields Eye
Hospital,
London,
said
cases have steadily risen
in the last 15 years.
They think women may
be protected by oestrogen,
while men are more likely
to be exposed to sunlight.

STUDENT FOLLOWED TO GYM
KILLED 7MINS AFTER
?STALKER EX? TEXT
A STUDENT was stabbed to
death by her ex seven minutes after messaging pals:
?Feel like I?m looking over
my shoulder all the time,? a
jury heard yesterday.
Molly McLaren, 23, sent the
WhatsApp text after Joshua
Stimpson tracked her down at
her gym, the court was told.
Blade . . Stimpson buys knife, right
Stimpson, who had two knives and
a pickaxe in his bag, put his exercise
mat near hers in the empty studio
on June 29 last year, jurors heard.
Molly, who had dumped him 12
days earlier, left and sent her last
worried WhatsApp to pals.
Seven
minutes
later
Stimpson
By ANDY CRICK
stabbed her in the head and neck as
she sat in her car in a shopping
centre car park after following her
from Pure Gym in Chatham, Kent.
Witness Benjamin Morton tried to
pull him off Molly as she screamed
for help but he moved
inside her Citroen car
and
carried
on
his
attack, jurors were told.
Mr Morton said: ?It
was like a frenzy, he
was doing it again and
again.? Police arrested
Stimpson but Molly died
half an hour later.
Two days earlier, the
window
fitter
had
Molly . . . with Stimpson
bought a Saxon pickaxe from Homebase and a Sabatier paring knife
from Asda ? the blade he used to
kill Molly, the court heard.
Stimpson ? who claims he suffers
from bipolar disorder ? admits manslaughter due to diminished responsibility but denies murder.
Maidstone crown court
heard part-time barmaid
Molly, of Cobham, Kent,
started dating Stimpson
in November 2016 after
meeting him on Tinder.
She dumped him, saying he became manipulative and childish.
She told a relative on
June 21: ?I?m scared
about what he might
do.? The trial continues.

Car boss

THE boss of Lotus has
been clocked test-driving
one of the firm?s cars at
102mph on an A-road.
Chief exec Jean-Marc
Gales, 55, was caught on
the A11 near the Lotus
factory at Hethel, Norfolk.
JPs in Norwich banned
him from driving for 30
days, fined him �6 and
advised him to take his
trial runs elsewhere.
Gales, who lives in
Turin, Italy, requested a
short ban rather than the
totting up penalty points.

The 31 per cent proportion was described by

?He is quite a private person

I want to ditch
wife for escort
Dear Deidre
I HAVEN?T had sex with my
wife for so long that I?ve
stopped asking now and
have found myself a
beautiful escort instead.
She is caring and kind ? and
the sex is amazing.
I?m 49 and I have been married
for 22 years. I still love my wife, I
suppose. She?s the mum of my
kids after all but her sex drive is
zero these days.
She?s 54 and has clearly got to
the point where she just can?t be
bothered to try.
Eventually, I got pretty fed up
about that. I?ve worked really hard
to make a good life for us both
but she takes it for granted and
has done for years. She doesn?t
ever give anything back.
I felt so frustrated and used that
I paid to have sex with an escort.
It was meant to be just a oneoff, almost an act of revenge on
my wife. But it soon became very
much more and I?ve been seeing
her now for three years.
This is a hot, stylish lady I?m

11 years younger than me. She told
me her husband had left her with
terrible debts and so now she
must work just to keep a roof over
her head and to help get her son
through university.
I thought she was honest and
brave and, best of all, it was clear
from the start she loves sex.
I ended up going back to her
time after time and I now see her
every two weeks. The sex just gets
better and better and I?ve fallen
for her in a very big way.
We message and chat on the
days we can?t meet and I want to
be with her all the time. But that
would break up my home and my
daughters would never forgive me.
I can?t go back to a life without
sex but I can?t cope with living a
lie. What can I do?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Don?t do anything
rash. First of all you need to step back
and take stock.
Your lover may give you the sexy
attention you need but you shouldn?t
forget that she?s doing her job. A
relationship with you may be far from
what she plans.
You still love your wife and so you
must tell her just how much you are
missing her physical love, and that you
both need to put in more effort to keep
your relationship strong.
Was menopause a factor? Was it just
that she stopped trying to please, or
did you become a lazy lover?
It?s so easy for marriage to get in a
rut of a familiar ? and boring ? routine.
Think about booking a fortnight
away, somewhere warm and romantic
where you can both relax and remember the reasons you first fell in love.
Sex with your lover is fun but can
that take the place of all the precious,
shared memories, your home and your
family life?

Life and then give it your best.

AFTER three years of being a

go back to college full-time.
It?s all going great but I?m back
with my son?s dad and I?m
scared this will ruin my plans.
He says he loves me and I
never stopped loving him,
even after he left me for
another woman. We?re both
28 and our son is six.
The trouble is that he?s
never paid money to me for
our son and I doubt that will
change. He wants to move

I HAVE always had a high sex
drive but my partner can put
me to shame.
He wants sex ten times
more often than I do.
I?m 37 and he is 39. We?ve
been together for six months.
Boyfriends have told me
I?m mad about sex but I don?t
really feel like that now.
He is constantly asking for
sex, or says that he wants to
make love. Sometimes he
just asks for a ?quickie?.
It all means the same ? he
wants sex.
He wants it so often it?s
putting me off but then it
makes me feel guilty for
turning him down.
I?ve tried talking to him but
he just feels rejected. What
can I do?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: He
sounds insecure, like he
needs constant proof of
your love.
Try sharing physical
affection, such as hugs and
cuddles and kisses, at
times when sex is not on the
cards and when you have
made certain he
understands that.
If you don?t feel like sex
when he does, tell him you
love him and suggest when
a good time would be.

CHILCOTT
MILLENNIAL WRITER FINDS OUT IF RETRO FOOD IS A DELIGHT
FOR mash get Smash.
You might remember the
famous ad with the
laughing Martians more
than the taste of instant
mash potato.
It is still around today,
but it?s not such a Smash
hit as other retro Seventies food such as Angel
SEMOLINA
PUDDING
A surprising treat. As far
as tinned desserts go
you can?t go wrong with
this take on rice pudding. OK, it is a bit like
baby food ? but in a
good way. I loved it.
Probably best eaten
with a big splodge of
strawberry jam.
VERDICT: Yummy ?
millennials
should
embrace it.
4/5
ARCTIC ROLL
Ice cream in sponge ? what?s not to like?
It may not be as fashionable these days
but it hasn?t vanished. The sponge is a
little cardboardy but the filling is so
creamy.
VERDICT: A good pud. Let?s revive it.
4/5
EVAPORATED
MILK
My new favourite
thing. Sweet and
creamy, I?d definitely
drizzle it on apple
crumble. I?d put it on
my cereal if the
mood took me. I
don?t know why it
has fallen out of
fashion.
VERDICT: A proper
British treat that
deserves revisiting.
5/5
Delight. This classic dessert has had a revamp
and is back in demand.
The pud of old was a
powder you had to whisk
with milk but now it is
ready to eat straight from
the pot and sales are up
by 30 per cent.
How will the millennial
generation get on with
well-known Seventies
fare?
Here, GIULIA CROUCH,
25, samples other food
made famous in the
?decade that taste
forgot? and gives each of
them a mark out of five
for taste.
Is 70s grub
a Smash hit
or a load of
old Spam?
FRAY BENTOS STEAK
& KIDNEY PIE
Pie has no business being in a tin. The
concept alone is deeply troubling. Still, it
came out of the oven with a crisp top and
didn?t look unappetising. But below was a
soggy bottom that would
make Mary Berry baulk.
And don?t get me
started on the filling. Yuck.
VERDICT:
It
had the potential to be so
bad it was
good. But it was
just bad.
1/5
BLACK FOREST GATEAU
Why did this dessert ever fade from
favour? It is really delicious. Chocolate?
Good. Cherry? Good. Whipped cream?
Good. In fact, there is nothing not to like
about
this
wonderful combination
of
flavours
and
the
gateau
itself was moist
and moreish.
VERDICT: An
absolute winner. Revive it
now.
5/5
FINDUS CRISPY PANCAKES
I?d heard of these. They have a cult following and enjoyed widespread popularity in
the past. So I was hopeful. But
biting into the beige crescent
moon was disappointing. The
gloopy yellow filling was
alarmingly luminous, not
especially cheesy and had a
claggy texture. I liked the idea
of this but it was a major
letdown.
VERDICT: Don?t believe the
hype.
2/5
SPAM
Smell-wise it is just as
bad as corned beef
but it tastes OK. It is
savoury and salty
and would probably
be OK on toast. It?s
not something I?d
choose to eat but
not the worst of foods
I tried. All I could find was
the health-conscious version Spam Lite
? perhaps it is for millennials after all.
VERDICT: I?d scoff it if I was starving and
there was no other choice.
2/5
ANGEL DELIGHT
And so we come to the product that
spurred this taste test. I discovered that
Angel Delight, in butterscotch flavour, is
a thing of wonder. It?s
light and fluffy and
so easy to scoff. I?m
pleased it?s back
and would urge
anyone who hasn?t
tried it to buy it
immediately.
VERDICT: A revelation. A Seventies
food
to
celebrate.
5/5
SMASH
Very strange. It is
like potato plus jelly
and looks like frogspawn. It is edible
but not particularly
reminiscent
of
mashed
potato.
The flavour is of
watery
nothingness with a mere
back
note
of
something
that
was once ? ages
ago ? a potato.
VERDICT: Confusing and just wrong.
2/5
BABYCHAM
Far, far too sweet. If anyone still
looks back fondly on this mildly
alcoholic pop then I don?t know
why. There?s no way I could finish a whole glass of Babycham. The slap of sugar from
the very first sip makes you
wince and, aside from that,
there?s really no discernible
flavour.
VERDICT: It?s baffling why
anyone would want to drink
this.

SMEAR tests save
lives ? but thousands
of women avoid them
because they are too
embarrassed to be
intimately examined.
A survey by the charity Jo?s
Cervical Cancer Trust found
that
a
third
of
women
delayed going for a smear
due to feeling awkward and
15 per cent would miss a test
for a wax or gym class.
Of those women who were
embarrassed, the biggest concerns
were their body shape, the
appearance of their vulva and
worries over smell.
Mum-of-one Kate Tonner had
never had a smear test and
ignored reminder letters because
she was too ?squeamish?.
But when she finally did get
checked out, at the age of 30, it
was already too late.
She was diagnosed with incurable cervical cancer which had
spread to her back and stomach
and she readily admits she was
stupid to delay the test.
Here, 38-year-old Kate, who has
a 13-year-old daughter, Grace,
with husband Ian, 45, a fire
officer, shares her story and
warns women never to think: ?It
won?t happen to me.?
Kate says: ?I feel so angry at
myself because my actions back
then mean Grace might grow up
without a mum.
?I was 29 and working shifts
and Grace was three when I was
sent the letter for a smear test.
Life was busy. The letter got
buried under my list of priorities.
?I could have avoided
years of upset?
?It was also the fear and
embarrassment of being so exposed. The thought of being in a
room with someone I didn?t know
looking at my most intimate
parts made me feel vulnerable.
?It was something I said I?d
sort out later but never got round
to it. I can?t believe how stupid I
was to ignore the letter and others I?d been sent over the years.
?I could have avoided years of
gruelling treatment and upset by
having that simple test.?
Eighteen months after receiving
the letter, Kate, from Stratfordupon-Avon, Warks, finally had a
smear test.
She says: ?It was when I saw
my doctor about headaches one
day and I mentioned to her that
I?d been having some bleeding
between periods. I hadn?t thought
much about it, though.
?She suggested doing the smear
while I was there. I was put on
the spot and didn?t have time to
get out of it.
?Afterwards I felt stupid for
having put it off. It took seconds,
didn?t hurt at all and I felt
completely at ease.
?The doctor said my cervix
looked angry, so I was referred to
a gynaecologist for a colonoscopy.
Things snowballed from there.?
Five weeks later, in December
2010, Kate was diagnosed with
cervical cancer. Five months after
that, she learned it was incurable.
She
says:
?It
was
a
massive shock because at
30, I thought I was too
young to have cancer.
?At
each
hospital
appointment, things went
from bad to worse.
?The
cancer
had
spread to my back
and stomach.
?I had six weeks of
chemotherapy
and
radiotherapy,
which
made me ill.
?I?d go for treatment
in the morning and
sleep until it was time
to pick up Grace from
school. Looking back,
it?s all a blur. When I
I was so
stupid to
delay
smear
test, now
I might
not see
my girl
grow up
was
told
the
cancer
was
incurable, we were devastated. All
they could do was try to prolong
the time I had left.?
The couple?s plans were cast
aside as their top priority became
to keep Kate well for as long as
possible and to make memories
together as a family.
She says: ?This wasn?t what we
had planned for our future. We
wanted to give Grace a brother
or sister, but the treatment sent
me into early menopause.
?We?d hoped to retire at 50 and
travel
around
America,
but
instead everything was thrown
into turmoil.
?We had set the date for our
wedding, but decided to bring it
forward to December 2011.
?It was a very emotional
day for everyone. Five
years on, it?s hard to
believe I?m still here.?
Kate, a former police
officer, adds: ?Now I
have check-ups every
three to six months,
depending
on
how
I?m feeling.
?The cancer is in
my lymphatic system
so nobody can say
when or where it
might
appear.
It?s
FIGHTING ON . . Kate
and husband Ian
taken me a long time to accept
we won?t have any more children.
?Having the decision taken
away from me is incredibly hard
to deal with. But now it?s about
making memories with Grace.
?She?s amazing and understands
what?s happening because she?s
grown up with my diagnosis.
We?ve drawn up a bucket list of
things we want to do.
?So far, we?ve been on a
helicopter ride, been on holiday
to Disneyland and last summer
we had a fantastic time on a
road trip around the West Coast
of America.
?I?ve flown first class to Abu
Dhabi with my best friends and
I?ve met Will Young. Next on the
list is a hot-air balloon ride.
?It?s hard because this whole
situation might have been avoided
if I?d made the right choice.
?Having a smear doesn?t hurt
and it takes seconds.
?Do it, not just for yourself, but
for
those
around
you.
My
diagnosis has affected Ian, Grace
and my family and friends.
?I?ve
had
61
rounds
of
radiotherapy and seven lots of
chemotherapy as well as surgery.
?If someone had offered me
cancer treatment or a threesecond smear, I know which
I?d have chosen. Smear tests
save lives.?

ESSENTIAL
GUIDE TO. . .
GOOD GYM
ETIQUETTE
IT?S hard enough finding the motivation to
get to the gym, but once there it can be even
harder to know if you?re doing things right.
Is there a time limit for the treadmill? Are
you allowed to take the weights anywhere
you like? And is it normal for someone to
exercise inches from you and your mat?
Fear not, confused gym goers. Here,
JENNY FRANCIS reveals the unwritten
rules in her ultimate guide to gym etiquette.
WIPE DOWN
Whether you drip with sweat just thinking
about exercise or are one of those lucky
people who only give off a single bead after
an hour?s run, you should always take a
small towel with you.
So many people are
sharing equipment it?s
only polite to wipe
down the mat or weight
after you?ve used it.
PUT STUFF BACK
Let?s face it, the gym
floor can be an obstacle course at the best of
times. But if everyone left mats, weights or
giant exercise balls lying around we would
stand no chance of making it from one side
to the other.
Plus, there is nothing more annoying than
not being able to find equipment when you
need it. And who wants to spend any longer
than they need to at the gym, desperately
searching for the other dumbbell?
?I?ve had 61 rounds of
radiotherapy and seven lots
of chemotherapy...instead
of a three-second smear?
THE following are the most common
inquiries received by Jo?s Cervical
Cancer Trust . . .
CAN I go for a smear test if I am on my
period?
Ideally your smear test should be on a
day when you are not having a period
because blood in the sample can affect
the results.
WHAT underwear should I wear?
Anything you like. Before the test your
health care professional will ask you to
remove your underwear and give you a
paper sheet to cover yourself. If self-conscious you may want to wear a skirt or
bring a shawl to make it more comfortable for you.
HOW often should I have a smear test?
Any female aged between 24� and 64
will be invited to attend cervical screenings. Women aged 24� to 49 are invited
every three years and women aged 50 to
64 are invited every five years. If you have
HIV or any other condition that affects
your immune system, you will be
screened annually.
DO I need to have a wax or shave
beforehand?
That?s up to you. The health
professional taking the sample will not
mind whether you are waxed, shaved or
au naturel. Having hair does not affect
the test.
Q&A
I AM worried about my body shape,
appearance or smell down there.
Our cervical screening sample
takers are trained health care
professionals who do millions of smear tests every
year, so they are used to
seeing women of all
shapes and sizes. If
you are worried about
the way you look or
smell, your smear
test could also be a
good time to talk about
these concerns.
DOES a man ever do
the test?
Most cervical screening
sample takers are female and
when you book your test you can
request a female sample taker. If your GP
surgery does not have a female nurse or
GP, then you can request a chaperone of
your choice to accompany you during
the test.

GYM CHATTER
Some people might be up for socialising at
the gym but most of us just want to get in, do
what needs doing, and leave without any
awkward chats.
To avoid attracting conversation, pop on
some headphones ? it?s the ultimate ?do not
disturb? sign.
WEIGHTS TO GO
MAKING THE MOST OF LIFE . . .

their wedding in 2011, top, on

CAN I have sex the same day as a
smear (i.e. before or after)?
If possible, do not have sex 24 hours
before your screening, as sperm, spermicidal gel and lubricants may make it
difficult to get a good sample of cells
from the cervix. After your test there are
no restrictions and you can have sex.
HOW long does it take for the test?
The smear test appointment takes
between ten and 15 minutes. The
actual test is only a few minutes.
DOES it hurt?
For most women, cervical screening is not
painful but it may feel
uncomfortable. Everyone is different, so if
you do feel discomfort
or pain during the test
do let the doctor or
nurse
know.
And
remember, you can say
?stop? at any time. You
may have some spotting
(very light bleeding) for a
day after the procedure
but be assured that this is
completely normal.
HOW long will I have to wait until I get
the results?
Your results will arrive by post two to
six weeks after your test.
WHAT IS
CERVICAL
CANCER?
MACMILLAN Cancer Support?s
Chief Nurse Dr Karen Roberts
says: ?Cervical cancer is usually
caused by a common infection ?
the human papilloma virus (HPV).
?However, most women who
have HPV will not get cervical
cancer. It can take many years to
develop. Before it does, changes
occur in the cells of the cervix.
?These abnormal cells are
non-cancerous but can develop
if they are not treated.
?Finding and diagnosing cancer
early saves lives, so it is vital to
attend regular smear tests.
?Women must not let nervousor self-consciousness put them
off. Spotting cancer early can
also help avoid invasive treatment.
Screening is very effective at
picking up early changes.
?You should always see your
GP if you have unusual symptoms,
such as bleeding after sex or
between periods, discomfort
during sex or unpleasantsmelling vaginal discharge.?

or call free on 0808 808 00 00. Also,
see jostrust.org.uk, 0808 802 800.
Never be too scared to pick up some
weights. But if you do venture up to the
weights rack, don?t stand directly in front of
it when performing your moves.
Find yourself a space a step away, so
others can get their hands on weights too.
DON?T MAKE A SCENE
No one can avoid panting and sweating
through a workout, but there is a difference
between heavy breathing and sounding like
you are auditioning to play Tarzan. Loud
grunting and groaning is seriously uncool.
As is dropping weights,
causing the person
next to you to burn
more calories from the
fright you just gave
them than the exercise
they are doing.
Place them on the
floor and you?ll save
unnecessary
earthquakes.
NO HOGGING EQUIPMENT
If you get there first it?s yours to use. You
should never feel like you have to get off the
treadmill just because someone is tutting
loudly behind you. But unlike sunbeds on
holidays, no amount of towel-placing is
acceptable in the gym.
Alternatively, if it?s the weights machine
you?re after, suggest swapping in and out
with each other between sets.
GET-OUT-OF-PT-FREE CARD
It can be annoying when personal trainers
approach you mid-squat.
But instead of ignoring them or telling the
PTs: ?For the millionth time, I can?t afford
you,? just smile and say: ?I?m really happy
working out on my own, thanks.? Then carry
on with your exercises. Having this line

MY husband and I met at school,
just like Ed Sheehan, pictured, and
his fianc閑 Cherry Seaborn.
We were both 14 and have been
together for more than 40 years,
married for 30 years and just as
happy and in love. Congratulations
to them and I wish them both
tons of happiness.

LETTER
A report has revealed seven in
ten of us don?t think web firms
do enough to address extremism
and cyber-bullying.
It must be difficult for them to
stop rogue posts. But eradicate
them they must.
The trend of the keyboard
terrorist has to be halted.
SANDRA QUEEN
Harlow, Essex
SOCIAL media giants such as
Facebook and Twitter earn stratospheric amounts of money.
They could easily afford a new
workforce to investigate posts that
promote extremism and child sex
abuse.
Rising concern at their inertia
has seen the public back tougher
laws to bring them into line. And
when the public get involved it?s
time to listen and act.
Given some of the filth social
media bosses allow, it?s a wonder
they can sleep at night.
DEBBIE FLECK
Newbiggin Hall, Tyne & Wear
IT is clear Facebook is not doing
enough to police its social media
site because it is far too busy
policing us mere mortals.
While it refuses to deal with
obnoxious postings by potential
terrorists, abusers of animals and
humans, and other deviants, it
ruled a photo of my granddaughter on a horse was not acceptable.
Facebook and others can police
their responsibilities but are too
busy hounding the wrong people.

GEOFF, Leeds
A SECOND royal wedding. Has
the British taxpayer got to fund
that as well?
ANDY B
This is taxpayers? cash that would
have otherwise gone into education, healthcare and many other
things we underfund in the UK.
Why should the British taxpayer sit in the dark while
paying for another country?s electricity bill?
It?s about time we took care of
our own first. And if there?s any
money left over, then help others.
CRAIG WELLS
Dereham, Norfolk
BORIS creates another meaningless diversion from the disaster of
Carillion.
It?s obvious the Conservative
Party does not want the NHS in
its present form or it would act
now. If we are to have all this
amazing windfall after Brexit,
start spending some of it now. It?s
all fantasy.

BORIS has got it wrong. If the
NHS is given more money it will

throwing cash away on poor procurement and still treat everyone

As Mars prepares to move on, emotions calm and passion
cools enough for you to make the right decisions about love
and key relationships. When you feel you recognise a new
face it?s the start of a profitable working relationship. It?s not
easy but being able to forgive is the mark of true friendship.
There is something different and special about you as the
moon enters your sign, and people respond positively to your
requests. If you?re single, you will meet someone who proves
love can be sultry, sincere and fun. If you?re in a relationship, it
still has further to go. Luck has a hot link with a TV travel show.
A logical approach to every love choice you make may sound
cold-hearted, yet it can launch a relationship that works on
every level or transform an existing love. At work it?s time to
show how deeply committed you are. The surprise of the day
is discovering which family member has a musical gift.
You have extra determination and are ready to double your
achievement levels. At work it?s vital to take yourself seriously
and show that you do. In matters of the heart, the moon is set
to turn a casual friendship into devoted love. Discovering
you have distant relatives in France enriches a family?s future.
Suddenly you?ll be sure about what your dream career really
is, then take the first steps towards making it happen. It may
mean more pay, but the real buzz comes from using your skill.
Single? Your new partner surprises your friends, and some
will envy you. Settled? A partner shares welcome secrets.
So many new opportunities open up now that you?re ready to
make your own decisions instead of waiting for people who
can?t make up their minds. As for new love, you?re the one with
the dilemma, as two equally attractive and similar people ask
you out. Luck links your family to a local drama group.
With the moon activating your chart?s most passionate area, it
is an ideal time to attract that special someone or restore
romance to a relationship that?s become routine. As for work,
you may get an opportunity to work with someone you have
mixed feelings about but that will soon turn into friendship.
As gladiator planet Mars gives you maximum energy and
unstoppable determination, this is a key time to plan your own
business. Later, love takes over as the moon enters your
relationship zone, and even the most independent partners
could be talking about commitment. Luck calls at a blue door.
You?re excellent at organising family, friends and workmates,
getting them to take on challenges and do their best work
without putting them under pressure. When it comes to love,
you will find your natural, relaxed approach is more effective
than over-the-top flattery with a person you find irresistible.
Saturn, the most powerful planet, goes deeper into your sign
and a dream person who you consider out of your reach could
soon become part of your life. And you will secretly enjoy the
surprised looks from the people who underestimate you. A
contest that four relatives enter may lead to a big cash prize.
You have a role in ensuring responsibilities at work and at
home are fairly shared among everyone ? including you. As
for romance, the moon of love creates a mix of empathy and
passion for couples. If you?re single, when you meet someone
who can explain your dreams, you may have found The One.
You are a skilled reader of other people?s characters and can
assess their attitudes to relationships. This makes you great
at matchmaking and finding people the right job. If you are
single, this time a talented and sexy dancer is the one. Jobwise, you are ready to act fast when a new project opens up.

STORES IN
MANAGER
OVERHAUL
SAINSBURY?S is changing
its stores? management
teams, raising questions
over the future of
thousands of jobs.
The retailer is consulting
staff over plans to reduce
the number of senior instore posts and replace
them with fewer top roles.
The revamp, designed to
cut costs, applies to every
Sainsbury?s store.
Those affected include
deputy managers,
department manager, team
leaders and store
supervisor, all of which sit
below store manager level.
They will be given the
choice of applying for the
better-paid management
roles, accepting a more
junior position or facing
redundancy consultation.
Simon Roberts, the
supermarket?s retail and
operations director,
insisted that the ?intention
is not to reduce overall
headcount?.
He said: ?The proposals
will introduce a more
efficient and effective
structure, designed to
meet the challenges of
today?s retail environment.?
Bev Clarkson of union
Unite said: ?Unite will be
seeking guarantees from
the management during the
45-day consultation period
that there will be no
compulsory redundancies.
?Sainsbury?s has a good
record of redeployment of
staff in these situations.?

be ?against the public interest?.
But it cleared the deal in
respect of Fox?s genuine commitment to broadcasting standards, sending shares in Sky

The CMA?s suggested remedies include selling SKY NEWS

ODI CRICKET
5-0
England chasing first Oz
whitewash, says Woakes
From JOHN STERN in Adelaide
ENGLAND?S one-day wonders
are warning the Aussies: We
want a whitewash.
HAVING A BALL
. . . Woakes has
hit form in the
one-dayers
Eoin Morgan?s side clinched the
five-match series with two games
to spare after Sunday?s 16-run
win in Sydney.
But, after this winter?s Ashes
disasters, skipper Morgan and
coach Trevor Bayliss want the
players to be ruthless in the
final two matches in Adelaide
on Friday and Perth next week.
The
Aussies
have
never
suffered a home one-day whitewash and England all-rounder
Chris Woakes revealed: ?Winning 5-0 is a huge motivation.
?We?re obviously delighted to
win the series but we won?t be
letting up. We?ve got the momentum and winning is a habit.
?To win a series out here is a
difficult thing to do. So once
you?ve got your foot on their
throat, you want to keep it down.
?If the roles were reversed,
Australia would be doing the
same thing to us.?
Woakes, 28, endured a torrid
Ashes series but he has been
outstanding in these one-dayers
with bat, ball and in the field.
His 39 from 27 balls ? plus
two run-outs ? helped steer
England to a four-wicket win in
the second match at the Gabba.
In Sydney, he smashed 53 off
36 balls and put on 113 in only
11 overs with century-maker
Jos Buttler before bowling the
final over of the match.
The Warwickshire star added:
?Batting is probably the part
of my game I?ve needed to
work on. Having been ducking and weaving a lot in the
Test series, it?s nice to be able
to swing at a few.?
World champs Australia are in
disarray in the 50-over format,
with chairman of selectors Trevor
Hohns calling for a tactical overhaul.
Hohns, 63, confessed: ?We are
reviewing how we?re actually playing the game and type of player
required in the one-day format.?
Uncapped Sam Curran has been
called up to replace Ben Stokes in
England?s Twenty20 squad to face
Australia and New Zealand.
The Surrey all-rounder, 19, joins
big brother Tom in the 15-man
party for the tri-series, which kicks
off in Hobart on February 7.
Stokes? return is on hold because
he is due in court on February 13,
facing a charge of affray.
Test skipper Joe Root is also
rested from the T20s.

TEMPLEGATE?S TOP TIPS
DOUBLE your money in Kempton?s 7.45. DEELEY?S
DOUBLE (nap) stayed on well to win at this track earlier in the month. He is still lightly raced for a five-year-old
and there should be plenty more to come.
ROSE TINTED SPIRIT (6.15 Kempton, nb) improved
with every run last season and can break his maiden
tonight. Ralph Beckett steps him up in trip for his handicap debut and he can take advantage.
FELISA (1.00 Lingfield, treble) took her form to a
new level when making all to win over track and
trip on her last start. She can prove that was no fluke.

and a file has been prepared for the coroner.?
Woollacott began training point-to-point horses
in 2005, saddling over 130
winners, and was crowned
champion point-to-point
rider in Britain in 2010.
He then switched his
attention to training under
Rules. He enjoyed a breakthrough moment at last
year?s Grand National
meeting when Lalor landed a 33-1 bumper win.
Beer Goggles is in the
Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham on Saturday. Woollacott?s wife Kayley has been
named as the trainer, along
with The Major, due to run
at Exeter today.

And,
after
stunning
world No 3 Grigor Dimitrov
in four sets at the Australian
Open, Edmund said: ?It?s
very pleasing, but of course
I?m going to keep going.?
The British No 2 added:
?The main thing I focus
on is I?m in a good place.
?There?s no reason why
I can?t go out there and
put in a good level on the
court and enjoy the occasion again.
?A semi of a Grand
Slam, it?s a great feeling.
I?ll just try to take it in my
stride as best as I can.?
Edmund?s 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4
win means he joins Henman, Andy Murray, Greg
Rusedski, John Lloyd and
Roger Taylor as one of only
six British men to reach
a Slam semi-final since
tennis went open in 1968.
The way Edmund beat a
top-ten player for the first
time in his career, on
the Rod Laver Arena in
his first Slam quarter-final,
said: ?For me, the impressive thing we?ve witnessed
this year is how Kyle is
coming through the tight
matches.
?Always the big challenge
is
dealing
with
adversity and, if you look
at his deciding-set record
last year, it was fairly poor
for a player of his ability.
?Coming into the match I
would have said he had
nothing to lose ? but then
when you get up two sets
to one with a break, then
you have something to lose.
?The way he finished
this match off will give
him so much confidence
? 30-all, a big ace up the
middle.?

of
triumph was delayed until

I?d say it?s in the top five
forehands out there.
?That?s what he has to
keep going. If he misses a

towards history really began

when he gave up cricket for
Bisham Abbey.
tennis.
The fact he has reached the
last eight of a Grand Slam for
the first time just underlines he
made the right choice.
Brit Edmund still has links to
his other sport and received
messages during his run to the
semi-finals from members of the
England squad, which this week
enjoyed its own triumph Down
Under in the ODIs.
Edmund, 23, said: ?I really try
and follow lots of sports as much
as possible.
?I like my cars and bikes and
stuff. I always watched the Isle
of Man TT.
?I obviously watch the cricket.
I was in a restaurant the other
day and Ricky Ponting walked
in. He?s like one of the biggest
Aussie legends.
?My Swedish coach Fredrik
Rosengren had no idea who he
was. Because I follow sports, I
idolise him.
?I?ve had some messages
from England cricketers
while I?ve been out here.
?I
really
enjoyed
playing ? batting and
bowling. I was sort of
county level at that
age. When I was
probably 12, then I
took tennis seriously.
?I
chose
tennis
because
it
was
an
individual sport ? you
had more ownership.
?Everything else was in
school. It was sort of something
I did on the side.
?To do something on the side and
to take it more seriously was maybe
a bit more appealing.?
Edmund came into the world in
Johannesburg, the first child of
Wales-born Steve and South African
Denise.
The family moved to Beverley,
East Yorkshire, when he was three
years old and Denise in particular
was determined that her son and
his younger sister Kelly would do as
much sport as possible.
By Edmund?s own account, he
started playing tennis at ten only
because Denise organised lessons for
him on a Saturday ?because I was
probably annoying her?.
He was a good student, attending
Beverley Grammar School. But by 13
he was spending long stretches with
Unlike Andy Murray, the man
whose enormous shoes everyone
would love him to fill, Edmund is
very much an LTA product. From 16
to 20, he spent much of his time
living and training at the National
Tennis Centre in Roehampton.
Murray also took a keen interest
in his development.
He invited Edmund to his winter
training in Miami, providing help
and advice when required, such as
during the Davis Cup weeks which
have also been key to Edmund
blossoming as a player.
But world No 49 Edmund ? in his
quietly determined way ? is very
much his own man.
He remembers watching Greg
Rusedski, Tim Henman and Murray
play, but the tennis player he really
admired as a kid was volatile
Russian Marat Safin.
Edmund, who plays Croat No 6
seed Marin Cilic tomorrow, said: ?I
enjoyed watching Safin because of
the way he played.
?He was a very explosive, powerful player. On
his day, he could be
really good.?
Safin, now 37, won
his second and last
Grand Slam in Australia in 2005, the
year
that
Edmund
started his career.
So what were his
dreams?
Edmund revealed: ?You
dream of playing in Grand
Slams first of all and I?ve done
that.
?Then it?s hitting with the top
guys. First, I remember being a
practice partner for, you know, like
Andy and Rafa and Roger, to warm
them up.
?Then suddenly you?re playing
these guys. At first it?s a bit surreal.
Then you take it in your stride.
?That competitive instinct comes
in. You want to beat them.
?A dream was to play for my
country and I?ve done that.
?But of course the big one is to
be in Grand Slam finals. Obviously
a dream is to win them.?
So can he win this one?
A bullish Edmund said: ?I don?t
think about it, I am going to win it.
?I think the next match is in my
head. I believe I can win that, like
today and every other match.?

Bum note, Al
SANCHEZ ON
OLD JOANNA
A NEW LOW
IT was the moment we have
been hurtling towards ever
since Richard Keys invented
English football and inspired
Steve Coogan to imagine
Alan Partridge on the same
Premier League launch day
back in 1992.
A man in a darkened room
plays ?Glory, Glory Hallelujah?
gospel-style on a piano. Then that
same man walks down a darkened
tunnel at Old Trafford.
Then Alexis Sanchez ? for it is
he, the Premier League?s first
�million-per-year player ? dons
his ?iconic? red No 7 shirt, because
everything in this league must be
an icon now.
I con, you con, we con, they con.
Then Sanchez heads out on the
turf, takes a deep breath, realises
how parky the night air is in
Manchester, opens his arms like
Christ the Redeemer and plays a
little more plinky-plonk on the
old Joanna.
Somewhere, a social-media executive with angular hair and skinny
jeans is preparing his acceptance
speech for awards night.
Meanwhile, vast swathes of the
nation groan and wonder just how
far up its own rectum football can
possibly disappear.
After the longest ?next 48 hours?
in history, Sanchez and Henrikh
Mkhitaryan finally swapped clubs,
presumably taking so long so that
United?s hipsters could sculpt
their 30-second masterpiece
to Michelangelo perfection.
United have signed a
29-year-old who wasn?t
quite good enough for
Barcelona.
Arsenal
have
signed
a
29-year-old
Mesut
Ozil-type
player
not quite as good
as
29-year-old
Mesut
Ozil,
presumably to eventually replace Ozil.
Sanchez had issued
a gushing Oscar-night
message ?umbly thanking
backroom
staff
and
the
Arsenal fans who adored him ?
they even unfurled a banner to his
pet retrievers at the Emirates.
But the Chilean ? who snubbed
his footballing guru Pep Guardiola
to earn twice as much at United,
yet is definitely not a mercenary ?
also used his farewell message to
slaughter former Arsenal players
who uttered ?damaging? opinions
about him on television.
Television, which invented Richard Keys, and therefore Premier
League
football
and
therefore
�m-per-year footballers.
Television, which must never be
used to point out that a star
player
stinkbombed
his
own
dressing room to such an extent
that his team-mates no longer
wished to celebrate his goals.
And this airbrushed blandness is

When, in fact, this transfer
window has given us a truer
reflection of how top-level football

who are keeping it real.
Roman Abramovich-owned Chelsea, who privately moan they can

And the brilliance of Chelsea?s
transfer window has been the

roubles, the champions of the richest league on Earth want to sign a
big man they can lump it up to.
Boss Antonio Conte has seriously
considered signing Andy Carroll,
Burnley?s Ashley Barnes or Peter
Crouch, who turns 37 next week.
Immense wealth and limitless
scientific data has led to this.
And it?s what the public want to
see. Not a glimpse into the inner
sanctum of a moodily lit dressing
room ? but more of a peek into
the panic-stricken meeting of a
transfer
committee
putting
its
best-laid plans through a shredder.
Sadly, it looks like a more
cultured targetman ? Roma?s exManchester City title-winner Edin
Dzeko ? will fulfil Conte?s craving.
But we almost got what we
really wanted. A silhouette of a 6ft
7in bloke, seemingly constructed
by pipe cleaners, performing a
robot dance at Stamford Bridge.
Then Crouchie turning to the
camera with a smile, as he sits at
a grand piano to play ?Chopsticks?
like Les Dawson in his pomp.
It would have been like Richard

Playmaker Mkhitaryan became an

?He has the qualities to integrate

ARSENAL v CHELSEA
EXCUSE
ARSENAL?S fans summed
up the view of Chelsea
from the outside.
Bored with a dreary 0-0
semi-final first leg a fortnight
ago,
they
enjoyed
taunting their opponents by
singing: ?You Bought It All?.
But that song is now officially
out of date.
Chelsea have accumulated 14
major
trophies
since
Roman
Abramovich and his wad of
Russian cash arrived at Stamford
Bridge almost 15 years ago.
So yesterday?s frank admission
by Antonio Conte that he can no
longer rely on sheer financial
force to bring success is a landmark day in the club?s history.
Almost as seismic as July 2,
2003, when Abramovich swept to
power with a �0million takeover
? appropriately a record price for
any British club at the time.
In the following years, a
succession of managers took the
business of buying and selling
players to giddy new heights,
twice shattering the British
transfer record.
First, a �m deal for
Andriy
Shevchenko
in
May 2006. Then �m
for Fernando Torres
in January 2011.
Smaller
clubs
would shudder in
anticipation of a
knock on the

money men

that one of
their players
showed
a
glimpse
of
talent.

Some Premier League
clubs still have not spent
that much on a single player.
Players came and players went,
as did managers, and all on big
money.
The view was that the price
was worth paying for sustained
success and with it came a
resentful image of Chelsea as the
representation of everything flash

City and United have the final

Chelsea

Arsenal
tonight in the second leg of their
Carabao Cup semi-final with
both now confirmed second-rate
in the pecking order.
Blues boss Conte said: ?You
have to know that the situation
changes. The past can be one
way, the future another.
?What happened three years,
ten years or eight years ago was
totally different. Now I think that
we have to fight. We have to
fight with our work.
?Last season, we won the
league and reached the FA Cup
final, and we finished with a
profit of �m in the transfer
market.
?In the past this had never
happened. For this reason, the
situation changed.
?When the situation changes,
you have to fight to try to give
all of yourself for Chelsea. Now,
for sure, United and Manchester
City stay there.
?I trust in my work. And I
think that, if I stay here it will
be because the club trusts in my
work.
?You can do two types of
football. You pay a lot of money
and take the best players. The
other way is to try and put a bit
of money in and then hard work.
We are in the middle.
?If you want the best, you have
to spend a lot of money.
?Otherwise you have to go in
the middle and spend �-30m.
?If you want to reach the best
targets, you must be prepared to
spend a lot of money. This is the
truth. See the reality.?
Abramovich is no longer willing to bankroll the pursuit of
glory carte blanche.
There are still big numbers
involved in Chelsea transfers but
on the way out ? not in.
Conte said: ?To spend 55m
euros on a young player like
Alvaro Morata, and selling Diego
Costa for 60m euros, a player
older than Morata, that was a
good sign for the club.
?If a player earns a lot of
money, it?s because he is the
best. Ronaldo scores 50 goals
every season, Messi scores 50
goals every season, Neymar does
the same. Every player has to
understand his level.
?But it?s the same for the
coach. The best win.
?If you win, ask. If you don?t
win, don?t ask. If you win and
ask, but . . . ?
In Conte?s case it looks like
you might no longer ?get?.

repeat, one of the reasons was

United eventually beat rivals
City to the superstar striker?s
signature in a 4�-year deal
worth �5,000 a week.
Conte added: ?If you continue
to have this type of gap ? it?s
not only in England ? these
two big clubs can become seriously dangerous for other teams
in the world. They are strong
already and want to invest.?
The Italian manager also lost
out to United in the battle to
sign �million striker Romelu
Lukaku last summer.
Conte said: ?It depends upon
the players you want. If you
have money, you can have the
best. Otherwise you find other
ways to stand up and fight.?
Chelsea hope to clinch a deal
of around �m for former City
striker Edin Dzeko, whose agent

But the affronted Frenchman
next month, he still will not

Asked if the mood of the club

?I have no illusions about that

And he knew just who to
blame, adding: ?The mood is
decided by you, the press.
?We have been in a few finals

?If there is one fan among a

?That?s the way it is and we

Wenger used to claim that he

But it appears that he has
become particularly sensitive to

It was pointed out to him that
Invincible Robert Pires, who
played in 45 of the legendary
squad?s 49-game unbeaten run

Wenger was not interested. He

?At first he was very young,

A Claret
hug for
Dyche
By KEN LAWRENCE
SEAN DYCHE has signed a
new �million contract to
keep him as Burnley boss
for the next 4 years.
But the Clarets chief
fears he may be one of a
dying breed.
Dyche?s new deal could
see him complete almost
a decade in the job.
Yet he reckons it is getting harder for managers
to remain in charge of a
team for a long time.
Dyche, 46, who took over
in 2012 and has twice led
the
Clarets
into
the
Premier League, said: ?I
don?t think the future of
management is staying at
the club as long even as
I?ve already stayed. Never
mind going beyond that.
?The demands now are
so instant, it?s going to get
more and more difficult.
?The coaches of the
future may be nomadic,
they just pop in and out of
clubs. It could even be oneseason-style management.?
Dyche, who signed a new
deal only last summer, has
been given a �-a-year
pay rise as Burnley bid to
keep him out of the
clutches of bigger clubs.
At �,000 per week,
he is the only Prem boss
to be earning more than
any of his top players.
But he said: ?The situation at this club is that we
have certain guidelines
and I buy into that.
?Success here cannot

BEST DEAL
Kev tops
Sanchez
any day
By MARTIN
BLACKBURN
MANCHESTER CITY believe
they did the best piece of
business in town this week.
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez
down the road at Old Trafford
may have taken the headlines
on Monday night.
Yet a couple of minutes earlier,
Kevin De Bruyne?s new five-year deal
at the Etihad was confirmed.
As far as trump cards go, it could
not have been much better in the
eyes of the City faithful.
The man they affectionately call
?Our Kev? has surely been the outstanding player in the Premier
League this season.
So to think he will now be wearing
a sky-blue shirt until 2023 is more
than enough to soften the blow of
missing out on Sanchez.
And as if to demonstrate the point,
KDB turned on the style in the
second leg of City?s Carabao Cup
semi-final last night, creating one
goal and scoring himself to lead his
team to Wembley.
His new contract will pocket the
Belgian around �0,000 a week but,
on this kind of form, he is worth
every penny.
Asked if he was pleased that the
�million man had signed on the
dotted
line,
Etihad
boss
Pep
Guardiola
grinned:
?You
cannot
imagine. I am so happy.
?It?s been a terrific few weeks for
us. David Silva, Nico Otamendi,
Fernandinho and now Kevin have all
signed ? and they are so important
for us.?
City pulled out of the race to sign
Sanchez after learning of the money
being demanded by the player and
Arsenal.
Whether it proves to be the right
decision only time will tell but, for
now, it seems to have had a positive
effect on Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine followed up his hattrick on Saturday by scoring a
crucial second goal that was beautifully crafted by De Bruyne.
Aguero has 23 goals for the season
and it looks like a weight has been
lifted now the shadow of his fellow
500
South American is no longer hanging
over him.
His goal here was a highlight of a
thrilling cup tie in which Lee Johnson?s impressive Bristol City side
almost pulled off the mother of all
comebacks.
After Aguero?s effort doubled Leroy
Sane?s opener, the Championship
high-fliers needed three goals just to
take the game to extra-time ? and
amazingly got two of them.
It wasn?t to be but they ended their
180 minutes against the best team in
the country with their heads very
much held high.
For Guardiola, he can look forward
to trying to win his first piece of
City silverware in next month?s final
? and the possible first leg of an
unprecedented Quadruple.
Johnson?s Robins had given City a
huge scare in the first leg when the
runaway Premier League leaders only
edged ahead through Aguero?s injurytime goal. That was reflected by the

team Guardiola chose for this game,

The Spaniard described their firsthalf display as ?amazing? and the
only surprise was that they took 43
minutes to get in front.
Aguero had already miscued a
cross which looped over City keeper
Luke Steele and hit the crossbar,
while David Silva forced a smart
save out of the home stopper.
Bernardo Silva also hurried Steele
into action and the Portuguese was
then involved when the visitors
finally took a fully deserved lead.
It was a scruffy goal as Hordur
Magnusson dwelt on the ball near his
goal-line and allowed Bernardo to
nick it off him.
He squared for Sane, whose powerful shot cannoned off Aden Flint
before beating Steele ? although it
might well have gone in anyway.

to get his men in at half-time but

the game continued in much the

within five minutes the tie was
effectively over.
De Bruyne looked to be worth
every penny of his new bumper contract as he controlled brilliantly and
rolled a delicious ball to open up the
defence.
It fell perfectly into the path of
Aguero, who still had plenty to do,
but he took a touch before beating
Steele in emphatic fashion.
He may not be Guardiola?s perfect
striker but his talent for scoring
goals is something else.
A blue flare landed in the goalmouth ? surely a sign that the hosts?
chances had gone up in smoke.
But midway through the second
half they grabbed a lifeline.
John Stones made a mess of clearing a long ball and Jamie Paterson
lobbed over a cross from the left.

DAVID PIPE was told his career was over
when he was jailed for grievous bodily harm.
Now the Newport defender, 34, is set to face
Tottenham in a dream FA Cup fourth-round tie.
Pipe was sentenced to 38 months in 2010 after
he smashed a man over the head with a wine
bottle, leaving a four-inch hole in his victim?s skull.
He said: ?When you see what you?ve done, it?s a
shock. But from the off, there was no trying to lie
about anything.
?I held my hands up and told myself if I don?t
learn from this, I?ll never learn. And I know I?ve
come out of it a better person.
?The last words of the judge who sent me down
were, ?You?ll never play professional football again?.
?You can feel sorry for yourself or you can agree
with him. I wanted to prove him wrong and I have.?

?That wasn?t nice to see, especially when it?s 20 yards from

The warning signs, though, had
been there from Pipe?s first night
inside HMP Hewell.
He said: ?I remember they shut

reopened and the officer took the

thoughts, but not to that extent.
?Then as soon as something like
that happens, that?s only going to

are going to do it or not.
?Fortunately, I was strongminded enough and I even
managed to stop two boys from
doing what they told me they
were going to do.
?But I often think about the
lads that took their own lives and
wonder if that was the moment
they started to think about it.?
Pipe, now 34, was jailed for
three years and two months in
June 2010 ? serving half of that, 15
months inside and four on a tag.
He pleaded guilty to wounding
with intent to cause grievous
bodily harm after hitting Rhys
Morris over the head with a wine
bottle in an unprovoked attack,
fracturing his victim?s skull.
SunSport met him at the Celtic
Manor Resort in Newport ? home
of the 2010 Ryder Cup ? ahead of
County?s FA Cup fourth-round
clash with Tottenham at Rodney
Parade, three miles down the road.
This is the first time he has
gone into any detail about the
assault and his time inside. And
he says it will also be the last.
Pipe admitted: ?I did something
out of character and very silly
and I held my hands up.
?I remember sitting in my

David Pipe is grateful for his
second chance in football
AFTER EXPERIENCES INSIDE
as, ?Oh, it was hard for me?
because it wasn?t me that something was done to, it was the
person in question.?
By the time he was sent down,
aged 26, Pipe had won one Wales
cap and played for Coventry,
Notts County and Bristol Rovers
? who had just released him.
Pipe said: ?When I was going
in to prison, one officer had the
screen in front of him and came
across my job title.
?He looked up to me and said,
?Things are about to go from bad
to worse for you?.
?I had five years at Coventry,
which is not far from Redditch,
where the prison is. So a lot of
lads in there were fans who had
gone from watching me play, to
being in a cell next door.?
Pipe feared his career was over
but he kept fit by getting a job
in the gym and playing football
again when he was moved to an
open prison after 13 months.
He explained: ?We had a
match every Sunday and it was
something to look forward to.
?It is a bit of a movie-type
clich�, but I was captain and we
got to the top of the local league.?
He was released from prison in
September 2011 and joined Newport in a deal arranged by his
then agent, the late Cyrille Regis.
The South Wales club suited
the full-back, given it was close
to his mum?s home near Caerphilly and he had strict curfews
because of his electronic tag.
Pipe recalled: ?My first match
back was Braintree away.
?I had to drive my mum?s car
because my curfew was 9pm and
I wouldn?t have got back in time
on the team bus. I?d get a black
mark on my tag if I was just one
minute late ? two of those and
you are going back into prison.?
Pipe was paid only petrol money
during the four months he was
tagged, but Newport then offered
him a short-term contract.
He was made club captain the
following season and led County
to their Conference play-off final
win over Wrexham at Wembley
in 2013.
Pipe left Newport in 2014 but
returned to the League Two club
last year after stints at Forest
Green and Eastleigh.
He added: ?Once you?ve been in
that situation of maybe never
playing again, when someone
gives you an opportunity, you can?t
express your gratitude enough.
?Newport gave me a chance to
turn things around. Thank God
they did.?

By GRAHAM NICKLESS
YEOVIL midfielder Otis
Khan?s dream of facing
Manchester United has
been squashed by the FA.
And Khan will now miss
five matches instead of
three for making a frivolous appeal against his
sending-off against Chesterfield on Saturday.
Former United trainee
Khan, 22, was desperate
to play in Friday?s FA Cup
clash despite being redcarded for shoving referee
eree
Kevin Johnson.
Khan ? wanted by
Wigan and several other
clubs ? made a heartfelt
public apology this week.
He said: ?Mr Johnson, I
am deeply sorry for falling
into you.?
But the FA extended the
original three-match ban
for wasting their time.
An FA statement said:
Yeovil appealed the red
?Yeovil
card, however, they failed
to convince an Independent Regulatory Commission that the referee
made an obvious error.?
League One Wigan now
lead the race to sign the
goalscorer, even though
Luton tabled a �0,000
bid that triggered his
release clause.
Bradford City and Bristol Rovers have also
expressed an interest in a
player who has ten goals
and ten assists to his
name this season.
The Glovers are more
likely to let Khan move to
a higher division than to a
League Two rival.
Powell a
Shrimp
By NOEL RICHARD
CHRIS POWELL has been
named as Southend?s new
manager.
The former Huddersfield
and
Charlton
chief
replaces Phil Brown, who
had lost seven of his last
eight Shrimpers games.
Powell, 48, signed a
2�-year deal.
He spent six years at
Roots Hall as a player,
making 290 appearances.
His managerial career
started at Charlton, where
he won the League One
title in 2012.
He joined the Terriers in
September 2014 but won
just 15 of 58 games.
Powell?s first Southend
match is Saturday?s visit
of
Scunthorpe.
His
appointment takes the
number of black and ethnic-minority managers in
the Football League to six.
He?s an English keeper in form
and has most clean sheets in
Europe ? Wolves? No1 is...
RUDDY
GOOD
ENGLISH goalkeepers appear to be
under a Premier League curse.
It is a worrying situation in a World Cup
year, which will hardly have escaped the
attention of England boss Gareth Southgate.
Joe Hart and Fraser Forster have both lost
their places at West Ham and Southampton
respectively, while Burnley?s Tom Heaton has
been injured since September.
Jordan Pickford has suffered a mixed season at
Everton and Jack Butland has been in the firing
line at Stoke.
Yet one English keeper who is experiencing a
far more enjoyable season, as he rarely picks the
ball out of the net, is John Ruddy at Wolves.
He has kept 15 clean sheets this season and
Nuno Espirito Santo?s side look nailed on for
promotion from the Championship.
The former Norwich keeper, signed on a free
transfer after Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with
leukaemia in July, is honest enough to admit this
spectacular number of clean sheets is due in no
small part to an outstanding defence.
Wolves suffered a wobble on Saturday, losing
2-0 at home to Nottingham Forest for their fourth
defeat, but they have still dropped only 22 points
and are nine ahead of second-placed Derby.
Ruddy, 31, hopes a return to the top flight next
season could also put him in the frame for an
England recall ? and the chance to improve on his
sole appearance, against Italy in a friendly in 2012.
He said: ?I am my own worst critic. I am
always striving to improve and I think this
season I have. Coming to Wolves could not have
By CHARLIE WYETT
gone any better. I had an extended holiday in
the summer as I did not have a club. I worked
hard, kept myself fit, did a bit of gardening and
sort of waited for the right club.
?I am far from being the best goalkeeper in
the world but I offer commitment and desire to
improve day on day ? and I feel I?ve done that.
?This is the best team I have played in, in
terms of quality of player. There have been a
couple of games where I have just been able
to enjoy watching the lads go about their
business ? but I still have to be alert in
those matches. I have had games with
barely any shots on target but I still
have stuff to do.
?Even if a team dominates for 85
minutes, you could suddenly get a shot.
?Also, regardless of shots on target,
goalkeeping is about distribution and
communication,
positioning,
timing
and coming for crosses; reading the
through balls.
?So, it has been good to have so
many clean sheets ? but that is not
everything.
?In 2014 I got relegated under Chris
Hughton at Norwich. I actually kept 12
clean sheets.
?At the start of that season, there was interest
from Chelsea ? and Norwich turned down
�illion. I was part of the England squad in a
World Cup year.

believes they could be even more knackered
this time after being flogged to death over
the Christmas period.
Trabelsi, 49, recalled Glenn Hoddle?s team
labouring to a 2-0 win in their opening
group game in Marseilles 20 years ago.
And even that unconvincing victory was
only secured by an 89th-minute goal from
Paul Scholes.
Trabelsi said: ?The bad thing about the
English team is that they have a lot of
pressure and a lot of games.
?And that makes it very difficult for them
to do well at any World Cup. The Christmas
week you have in the Premier League is
totally crazy. You see players who do well in

the Premier League, the Champions League
and with their national team.
?But by the time the English players go to
the World Cup, they will have played 60
games. And that is a lot.
?I understand the commercial responsibilities of the game and the need to respect the
sponsors and TV companies, but something
should be done before the World Cup so the
players have some break.

Former central defender Trabelsi spent two years as the
Tunisian national coach (below)
from 2011 to 2013 and is now manager of the Qatari team Al Sailiya.
And he will be following his countrymen closely when they kick off
against Southgate?s team in Volgograd
on June 18.
Yet while he is cautiously optimistic of
a result for Tunisia, he admits they lack
England?s quality.
He said: ?I watch a lot of games

Harry Kane because I like Real
Madrid and he has given them a lot
of trouble this season!
?Harry caused a lot of problems for
Sergio Ramos when Tottenham played
Real Madrid in the Champions League.
?He?s a good striker and very strong.
It?s not easy to find such a physical and technical player.

?Everyone talks about the striker Youssef
Msakni, but he can?t maintain his best level
for 90 minutes against strong defenders
because he doesn?t play at a high level.
?There are seven or eight players in the
Tunisian squad who play in Europe, but they
are not with the big teams.
?We had the same problems in 1998. When
we kicked off against England in Marseilles,
it was the first time we had played against
big international stars such as Alan Shearer
and Michael Owen.
?We lost because of our inexperience. If
we had played against big teams before
the World Cup, we could have done
better.
?But I was quite happy with the way
the current Tunisian team played at
the last African Cup of Nations and
they have a good chance to get through
to the next round in Russia.
?If we win our first game against
England, then we will be able to do a
lot more. So maybe that day in
Volgograd we will have our
luck and show our best

PAUL SCHOLES scored a lastminute strike with a classic,
curling 20-yarder in England?s
World Cup opener against Tunisia.
Afterwards the Manchester United
star admitted: ?This is the highlight of
my career ? the greatest moment of
my life.
?To score a World Cup goal in the
first game is brilliant.?
Alan Shearer got the Three Lions?
opener just before half-time, heading
home a Graeme Le Saux free-kick
from the edge of the six-yard box.
Old Trafford legend Scholes, who
was 23 at the time, showed manager
Glenn Hoddle made the right decision
in preferring him to Paul Gascoigne.
Delighted Hoddle said: ?Paul?s finish
was world class. He is confident in his
ability and played a super role just off
the front two.
?Alan had one chance and took it
superbly. The guy is simply lethal.?
But Hoddle?s other controversial
selection, the inclusion of Darren
Anderton in preference to David
Beckham, was less successful.
Midfielder Scholes added: ?I felt a
bit of pressure on me because people
were talking about me replacing
Gazza. The pressure was there to
produce a goal. So I was delighted to
get the opportunity. Paul Ince made a
great run and played a lovely ball.
?I was going to roll it back to him
but miscontrolled it and so just turned
and hit it.?
Tunisian keeper Chokri El Ouaer
kept his side in the game with two
good saves from Scholes and another
from Teddy Sheringham.
Michael Owen became the third
youngest player in a World Cup at the
age of 18 years six months and one

?He has the qualities to integrate

Mkhitaryan will not be available to

ARSENAL v CHELSEA
EXCUSE
ARSENAL?S fans summed
up the view of Chelsea
from the outside.
Bored with a dreary 0-0
semi-final first leg a fortnight
ago,
they
enjoyed
taunting their opponents by
singing: ?You Bought It All?.
But that song is now officially
out of date.
Chelsea have accumulated 14
major
trophies
since
Roman
Abramovich and his wad of
Russian cash arrived at Stamford
Bridge almost 15 years ago.
So yesterday?s frank admission
by Antonio Conte that he can no
longer rely on sheer financial
force to bring success is a landmark day in the club?s history.
Almost as seismic as July 2,
2003, when Abramovich swept to
power with a �0million takeover
? appropriately a record price for
any British club at the time.
In the following years, a
succession of managers took the
business of buying and selling
players to giddy new heights,
twice shattering the British
transfer record.
First, a �m deal for
Andriy
Shevchenko
in
May 2006. Then �m
for Fernando Torres
in January 2011.
Smaller
clubs
would shudder in
anticipation of a
knock on the

money men

say in who goes where.
Chelsea

Arsenal
tonight in the second leg of their
Carabao Cup semi-final with
both now confirmed second-rate
in the pecking order.
Blues boss Conte said: ?You
have to know that the situation
changes. The past can be one
way, the future another.
?What happened three years,
ten years or eight years ago was
totally different. Now I think that
we have to fight. We have to
fight with our work.
?Last season, we won the
league and reached the FA Cup
final, and we finished with a
profit of �m in the transfer
market.
?In the past this had never
happened. For this reason, the
situation changed.
?When the situation changes,
you have to fight to try to give
all of yourself for Chelsea. Now,
for sure, United and Manchester
City stay there.
?I trust in my work. And I
think that, if I stay here it will
be because the club trusts in my
work.
?You can do two types of
football. You pay a lot of money
and take the best players. The
other way is to try and put a bit
of money in and then hard work.
We are in the middle.
?If you want the best, you have
to spend a lot of money.
?Otherwise you have to go in
the middle and spend �-30m.
?If you want to reach the best
targets, you must be prepared to
spend a lot of money. This is the
truth. See the reality.?
Abramovich is no longer willing to bankroll the pursuit of
glory carte blanche.
There are still big numbers
involved in Chelsea transfers but
on the way out ? not in.
Conte said: ?To spend 55m
euros on a young player like
Alvaro Morata, and selling Diego
Costa for 60m euros, a player
older than Morata, that was a
good sign for the club.
?If a player earns a lot of
money, it?s because he is the
best. Ronaldo scores 50 goals
every season, Messi scores 50
goals every season, Neymar does
the same. Every player has to
understand his level.
?But it?s the same for the
coach. The best win.
?If you win, ask. If you don?t
win, don?t ask. If you win and
ask, but . . . ?
In Conte?s case it looks like
you might no longer ?get?.

repeat, one of the reasons was

United eventually beat rivals
City to the superstar striker?s

worth �5,000 a week.
Conte added: ?If you continue
to have this type of gap ? it?s
not only in England ? these
two big clubs can become seriously dangerous for other teams
in the world. They are strong
already and want to invest.?
The Italian manager also lost
out to United in the battle to

the players you want. If you

The bitter Arsenal boss is
upset at the lavish praise heaped
upon the likes of Tottenham?s

and
Liverpool?s Jurgen Klopp.
All this while his own considerable managerial achievements
are constantly overlooked.
Victory in tonight?s Carabao

major cup final in four years.
But the affronted Frenchman
next month, he still will not

Asked if the mood of the club
would be lifted by a positive
result tonight, Wenger sneered:
?I have no illusions about that
at all.?
And he knew just who to
blame, adding: ?The mood is
decided by you, the press.
?We have been in a few finals
recently and has it changed
your mood? No. You celebrate

?If there is one fan among a

?That?s the way it is and we

Wenger used to claim that he
never read the papers.
But it appears that he has
become particularly sensitive to
criticism in recent months.
It was pointed out to him that
Invincible Robert Pires, who
played in 45 of the legendary
squad?s 49-game unbeaten run
over
2003
and
2004,
had
suggested that Arsenal?s lack of

Wenger was not interested. He
huffed: ?I cannot comment on

?You buy the players you can
afford to have a strong team.
?Can we buy Neymar for
�0million? No. So the decision
is easy to make.?
ARSENAL (likely): Ospina; Bellerin, Koscielny,
Mustafi, Monreal; Ramsey, Xhaka, Wilshere; Ozil,

Alexis? sign

to sign Alexis Sanchez 12
YEARS ago.
Manchester

South
American scout Jorge Alvial first
suggested landing the Chilean
forward (left) when he arrived at
Mourinho?s Chelsea in 2006.
Alvial, who forged a close relationship with Mourinho over his
two spells at Stamford Bridge
before joining him at United, said:
?I?ve been recommending Alexis
since I came to Chelsea.
?At first he was very young,
although obviously you could see he
had a big future and potential.
?Jose always liked him. What he
admires is his leadership on the
field, as well as being a player who
can change the game at any time.
?Now he arrives at United as one
of the most experienced players.?
Usmanov in dock
ARSENAL investor Alisher Usmanov could be placed
on a US blacklist over allegations of ties to Russian
president Vladimir Putin.
Usmanov, Britain?s fifth-richest man with an
estimated �billion fortune, has been accused by
American senators of donating a �million
mansion to Putin?s deputy Prime Minister.
Uzbek-born Russian Usmanov, 64, won a Moscow
libel case against an opposition MP who made the
allegations and insists he has done nothing wrong.

CARABAO CUPP
DYCHE . . . �m deal
A Claret
hug for
Dyche
By KEN LAWRENCE
SEAN DYCHE has signed a
new �million contract to
keep him as Burnley boss
for the next 4 years.
But the Clarets chief
fears he may be one of a
dying breed.
Dyche?s new deal could
see him complete almost
a decade in the job.
Yet he reckons it is getting harder for managers
to remain in charge of a
team for a long time.
Dyche, 46, who took over
in 2012 and has twice led
the
Clarets
into
the
Premier League, said: ?I
don?t think the future of
management is staying at
the club as long even as
I?ve already stayed. Never
mind going beyond that.
?The demands now are
so instant, it?s going to get
more and more difficult.
?The coaches of the
future may be nomadic,
they just pop in and out of
clubs. It could even be oneseason-style management.?
Dyche, who signed a new
deal only last summer, has
been given a �-a-year
pay rise as Burnley bid to
keep him out of the
clutches of bigger clubs.
At �,000 per week,
he is the only Prem boss
to be earning more than
any of his top players.
But he said: ?The situation at this club is that we
have certain guidelines
and I buy into that.
?Success here cannot
be success at any cost.?

The 30-year-old winger
has moved from Everton

His first day was a far

Goodison in 2015.
Then he was slated for
looking less than thrilled.
Lennon said: ?Burnley
was the club I wanted to
come to and I can?t wait
to get started. I?m looking
forward to playing here.
?I think I?ve still got a
lot to offer.
?I?ve never had an easy

BEST DEAL
Kev tops
Sanchez
any day
By MARTIN
BLACKBURN
MANCHESTER CITY believe
they did the best piece of
business in town this week.
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez
down the road at Old Trafford
may have taken the headlines
on Monday night.
Yet a couple of minutes earlier,
Kevin De Bruyne?s new five-year deal
at the Etihad was confirmed.
As far as trump cards go, it could
not have been much better in the
eyes of the City faithful.
The man they affectionately call
?Our Kev? has surely been the outstanding player in the Premier
League this season.
So to think he will now be wearing
a sky-blue shirt until 2023 is more
than enough to soften the blow of
missing out on Sanchez.
And as if to demonstrate the point,
KDB turned on the style in the
second leg of City?s Carabao Cup
semi-final last night, creating one
goal and scoring himself to lead his
team to Wembley.
His new contract will pocket the
Belgian around �0,000 a week but,
on this kind of form, he is worth
every penny.
Asked if he was pleased that the
�million man had signed on the
dotted
line,
Etihad
boss
Pep
Guardiola
grinned:
?You
cannot
imagine. I am so happy.
?It?s been a terrific few weeks for
us. David Silva, Nico Otamendi,
Fernandinho and now Kevin have all
signed ? and they are so important
for us.?
City pulled out of the race to sign
Sanchez after learning of the money
being demanded by the player and
Arsenal.
Whether it proves to be the right
decision only time will tell but, for
now, it seems to have had a positive
effect on Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine followed up his hattrick on Saturday by scoring a
crucial second goal that was beautifully crafted by De Bruyne.
Aguero has 23 goals for the season
and it looks like a weight has been
lifted now the shadow of his fellow
500
South American is no longer hanging
over him.
His goal here was a highlight of a
thrilling cup tie in which Lee Johnson?s impressive Bristol City side
almost pulled off the mother of all
comebacks.
After Aguero?s effort doubled Leroy
Sane?s opener, the Championship
high-fliers needed three goals just to
take the game to extra-time ? and
amazingly got two of them.
It wasn?t to be but they ended their
180 minutes against the best team in
the country with their heads very
much held high.
For Guardiola, he can look forward
to trying to win his first piece of
City silverware in next month?s final
? and the possible first leg of an
unprecedented Quadruple.
Johnson?s Robins had given City a
huge scare in the first leg when the
runaway Premier League leaders only
edged ahead through Aguero?s injurytime goal. That was reflected by the

team Guardiola chose for this game,
with almost all of his big guns
picked to start.
The Spaniard described their firsthalf display as ?amazing? and the
only surprise was that they took 43
minutes to get in front.
Aguero had already miscued a
cross which looped over City keeper
Luke Steele and hit the crossbar,
while David Silva forced a smart
save out of the home stopper.
Bernardo Silva also hurried Steele
into action and the Portuguese was
then involved when the visitors
finally took a fully deserved lead.
It was a scruffy goal as Hordur
Magnusson dwelt on the ball near his
goal-line and allowed Bernardo to
nick it off him.
He squared for Sane, whose powerful shot cannoned off Aden Flint
before beating Steele ? although it
might well have gone in anyway.
Johnson would have been pleased
to get his men in at half-time but

the game continued in much the
same vein after the restart. And
within five minutes the tie was
effectively over.
De Bruyne looked to be worth
every penny of his new bumper contract as he controlled brilliantly and
rolled a delicious ball to open up the
defence.
It fell perfectly into the path of
Aguero, who still had plenty to do,
but he took a touch before beating
Steele in emphatic fashion.
He may not be Guardiola?s perfect
striker but his talent for scoring
goals is something else.
A blue flare landed in the goalmouth ? surely a sign that the hosts?
chances had gone up in smoke.
But midway through the second
half they grabbed a lifeline.
John Stones made a mess of clearing a long ball and Jamie Paterson
lobbed over a cross from the left.
Marlon Pack rose majestically at the
back post and nodded back across
