DISAGREEMENTS over our future
customs relationship with the EU
have put the Conservative Party on
the brink of a civil war that “could be
the end of Theresa May” as Prime
Minister, a senior Tory has warned.
As MPs return to Parliament today,
Mrs May is facing a stark warning that
Brexiteers will not put up with her
plans to create a new partnership
with the European Union which could
tie Britain to Brussels rule for years
to come.
That comes after a weekend during
which Mrs May sent Remainer
Business Secretary Greg Clark out to
television studios to defend her plans.
He claimed that thousands of jobs
could be lost at manufacturers such
as car maker Toyota if the customs
partnership does not happen.
But Environment Secretary Michael
Gove, the former leader of Vote Leave,
hit back by backing a Twitter thread
attacking the controversial proposal.
Mr Gove described as “helpful” a
series of posts by former aide Henry
Newman – now director of the Open
Europe think-tank – that described
resurrecting the customs partnership
as “surely misguided”.
Mrs May is understood to support a
plan devised by controversial civil
servant Olly Robbins that would turn
Britain into the EU’s tax collector in
an attempt to sort out customs
problems after Brexit and create a
frictionless border between Northern
Ireland and Ireland.
Many thought the plan was “dead”
after a Brexit “war cabinet” last week
when Home Secretary Sajid Javid
joined Brexiteers to vote down the
Last week, the Daily Express
revealed that if Mrs May ignores them
on this issue, Brexit Secretary David
Davis is likely to resign.
If that happens other ministers are
expected to follow, and senior backbenchers have said there will also
be the 48 signatures needed from
Tory MPs to trigger a vote of no
confidence in Mrs May’s leadership.
Last night a senior Tory MP said:
“That threat [of a vote of no confidence] has not gone away. This could
be the end of Theresa May.
“She may not realise it but we are
on the brink here. She needs to listen
to her parties and her Cabinet who
have given a very strong message.”
Senior Tory Brexiteers have been
lining up to hit back at attempts to tie
Britain to EU customs arrangements
Nigel Pivaro
fears for UK
fishing industry
FORMER Coronation Street star
Nigel Pivaro has joined the crusade
to rescue Britain’s fishing industry
after we leave the EU.
The actor-turned-journalist
– who played Terry Duckworth in
the top-rated soap – is to launch a
publicity campaign for the industry.
His intervention comes nearly a
month after trawlermen protested
against plans to keep the Common
Fisheries Policy in place 21 months
after the UK’s split from Europe.
Mr Pivaro said: “The fishermen
feel they’ve been hard done by.
Politicians will not support them
because they don’t think of the
fishing industry as a vote-catcher.”
He added: “When Brexit came
along, I thought it could be a shot
in the arm for the industry. I looked
into it further and thought, ‘It’s not
going to be as simple as that’.
“Here we are, an island nation
with a great fishing tradition and
we can’t sustain a fishing industry.”
and the single market. Former Tory
leader Iain Duncan Smith, writing on
the ConservativeHome website, said:
“Despite the crucial Cabinet subcommittee on Brexit negotiations and
strategy deciding that the scheme
isn’t fit for purpose, some in Downing
Street are, incredibly, now briefing
that after a few tweaks it can be
presented again.”
Former Brexit minister David Jones
also warned: “They ought to understand the customs partnership is dead
and finished and they should give up.”
Labour, the Lib Dems and Scottish
National Party are hoping to get
together with Tory Remainers including Anna Soubry to vote through an
amendment to the trade bill forcing
Britain to stay under Brussels rule in a
full customs union.
This would turn Britain into a
country like Turkey which has no say
over its trade policy and cannot create
separate free trade agreements with
outside countries.
BRITAIN’S farmers and growers
should be the “number one supplier
of choice” for UK consumers
after Brexit.
The National Farmers’ Union has
outlined its vision of what the future
should look like after the UK leaves
the EU’s much-criticised Common
Agricultural Policy.
It is calling for policies that are fair
to all farm businesses, provide a level
playing field across the UK, and give
time and certainty for farmers to plan,
adapt and invest in the future.
NFU president Minette Batters said:
“We are on the cusp of a pivotal
moment. I want British farmers and
growers to remain the number one
supplier of choice to the UK market,
and I want British people to be able to
enjoy more sustainable, affordable
British food at a range of different
prices that suit all incomes.”

All smiles...
Adele at her
Titanic party
and, far left,
dancing in a
life jacket as
Kate Winslet’s
SINGER Adele pushed the boat
out for her 30th birthday party
– but her Titanic-themed bash
created a backlash with some
fans accusing her of bad taste.
The Grammy award-winning
star went as Kate Winslet’s
character Rose DeWitt Bukater
from the 1997 blockbuster.
And the star looked remarkably
like the actress in the film with
her red curls and replica dress.
As well as family, celebrity
friends at the party in Beverly
Hills on Saturday included comic
Alan Carr, music producer Mark
Ronson, DJ Zane Lowe, Breaking
Bad actor Aaron Paul and
filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Adele thanked them all for
attending and confessed that she
had partied a little too hard.
“Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m
going to do for the next 30 years
as I’ve been blessed beyond
words in my life so far,” she
wrote on her Instagram account.
“Thank you to everyone for
coming along for the ride the last
11 years with me. My family and
friends for entertaining my super
fandom of the Titanic movie.
“Last night was the best night
of my life. Here’s a couple of pics.
I’m absolutely f*****, not sure I’ll
make it out the house again!”
Chatty Man Alan Carr came
dressed as actress Kathy Bates’s
character from the film. She
played the mining billionaire and
socialite Margaret Brown, who
was known as The Unsinkable
Molly Brown after she survived
the Titanic, which sank in 1912.
He tweeted: “Most parties you
leave with a goody bag!!! But a
life jacket?!!!! WTF?!! Ha!”
Photos of Adele enjoying her
Titanic-themed party had a mixed
reaction from fans. One wrote on
Twitter: “Why aren’t I friends with
Adele? Her 30th birthday Titanic
Soiree is giving me life”. Another
said: “I’m pretty sure I’ve never
been more jealous of anything
in my life as I am of Adele’s
Titanic-themed birthday party.”
However others were
disgusted. “Isn’t this kinda/very
inappropriate? Adele’s Titanic
themed birthday party had them
dancing in life jackets...
Thousands of people actually
died,” one person posted.
Another wrote: “Does Adele
realise the Titanic movie was
based on the actual sinking of the
ship where 1,500 people died?
Not exactly a good party theme.”
More than 1,500 people out of
the 2,224 on board died when the
Titanic struck an iceberg in the
north Atlantic on her maiden
voyage from Southampton to
New York City on April 15, 1912.

Kay’s unscripted Car Share’s a hit
Having fun...Peter Kay and Sian Gibson as John and Kayleigh
FANS paid tribute to comedian Peter
Kay’s eagerly awaited return to TV last
night in an improvised episode of his hit
BBC series Car Share.
The unscripted edition of the Baftawinning comedy was his first appearance since he was forced to cancel a live
tour in December due to “unforseen
family circumstances”.
Kay appeared on screen before it
began and told viewers: “What you’re
going to watch tonight is called Car
Share Unscripted
“You’re about to watch is Sian [Gibson] and myself doing some improvisation. We just wanted to see what would
happen if we filmed a whole journey
without a script, just making it up,
reacting to the radio, chatting and basically seeing what happened. So here is
the result, I hope you enjoy it.”
The episode was well-received with
viewers. One wrote on Twitter: “Just the
facial expressions make me laugh! Have
missed this brilliant series!”
Another wrote: “Peter Kay, Sian Gibson pure comedy gold.”
However, one disappointed fan wrote:
“Ooh, Peter Kay has missed the spot
here with his ‘unscripted’ idea! I am a
big fan but this is worse than awful.” In
the show Kay plays supermarket
assistant manager John Redmond who
gives a lift to work to promotions rep
Kayleigh Kitson (Gibson).
During the journey they chat and sing
along to songs on Forever FM on the car
radio. Fans were left disappointed last
year when the second series finished
without a happy ending after John
rejected Kayleigh’s advances.
Ahead of their TV premiere this
month, the show’s final two episodes
were shown at a charity screening at
Blackpool Opera House in April. The
finale will be broadcast on May 28.

doctors’ after
brain surgery
SIR Alex Ferguson last night appeared
to be making a recovery and was reportedly awake and talking two days after
undergoing emergency brain surgery.

fatal stabbing incident while, inset, air support arrives
The club’s Spanish star Juan Mata
led the rallying cry and told how he
wanted the Old Trafford giants to dedicate a trophy victory to Sir Alex.
Former Chelsea star Mata, 30, said:
“This has had a huge impact on Manchester United, as you can imagine.
“All of us are united right now, wishing Sir Alex a speedy recovery. He has
been a unique and fundamental figure
in the football world over the past
few decades.
“I know well his incomparable legacy
on this club, that winning mentality
and fighting gene that we must honour
in the last three games of the season,
especially in the FA Cup final.
“To achieve that, we are going to
work hard while we eagerly
await good news about Sir
Alex’s recovery.”
Fellow United star Phil
Jones told how Sir Alex was
“like a father” to him and
said he was “absolutely devastated”.

United legend Ryan Giggs, 44, echoed the players’ sentiments as he spoke
of his “huge shock”.
Giggs said: “Now is the time to pray
and hope he can make a full recovery.
He has been the biggest influence in
my career, both on and off the pitch.
“It was a huge shock as the news
filtered in but I gather the operation
has been a success.”
Sir Alex, who won 38 trophies during his time at Old Trafford, was

Hawaii’s erupting volcano
sees 1,700 residents flee
MORE than 1,700 residents have been
evacuated in Hawaii as a volcanic
eruption continued to devastate
homes last night.
Some residents have been allowed
to briefly return to their homes to
gather supplies, personal belongings
and collect their pets.
Big Island’s Kilauea volcano
erupted on Thursday, spewing molten
rock and high levels of sulfur dioxide
into the atmosphere.
It was followed by a 6.9 magnitude
earthquake, Hawaii’s largest in more
than 40 years, on Friday morning.
Wendy Stovall, a US Geological
Survey volcanologist, said: “There’s
more magma in the system to be
erupted. As long as that supply is
there, the eruption will continue.”
Authorities revealed that 26 homes
have been lost to the volcano so far,
and residents have been left in the
dark as to how long they might be
homeless. The ruined homes are in
Leilani Estates neighbourhood, in the
island’s eastern Puna district.

The Tory politician added that
priority should be given to tackling drugs and the gangs pushing
them – reportedly the source of
much of the violence.
The calls came after six shootings and six stabbings took place
in London, Liverpool, Luton,
Macclesfield and Oxford between
Saturday and las night.

So many shattered lives, families

Across the city, a 43-year-old
man was stabbed in Ealing, west
London, after a motoring dispute
on a residential street on Saturday night.
Scotland Yard said the victim,
who was in a stable condition in
hospital yesterday, was believed
to have been attacked after criticising the driving of the suspect,
who then drove away.
The violence continued with a
22-year-old man shot on Sunday
night in south-east London.
He suffered non-life-threatening wounds in the shooting in
New Cross Road, Lewisham, at
about 6.30pm and no arrests have
been made.
Two stabbings took place in
Luton on Sunday, with a 20-yearold man knifed to death and
another man left with serious but
non-life-threatening leg injuries
after an unconnected incident.
Two teenage boys, one aged
just 13, were shot in broad daylight in Harrow, north-west London.

on Sunday night. A 15-year-old
boy and a 29-year-old man have
been arrested. In Leytonstone,
east London, a man aged in his
late teens or early 20s was stabbed
but his condition is not known.
Detective Chief Superintendent Simon Messinger added officers were using search powers to
seize knives.Mr Messinger, the
Southwark Borough Commander,
covering the area where Rhyhiem
was gunned down, said the violence had “rightly caused concern” and said the “fast-paced”
investigation was “progressing all
the time”.
He said additional officers
would be on patrol, supported by
armed response officers on
motorcycles, along with dog units
and air support.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan also
said his thoughts went out to the
“loved ones of the teenager who
was tragically killed”.
He refused to take any blame
for the violence, claiming it was
the fault of the Government after
cuts to police funding.
Mr Khan said: “Keeping Londoners safe is my top priority.
“I remain in constant contact
with the Metropolitan Police and
am reassured that they are doing
everything they can to bring
those responsible to justice and
to keep us all safe.Violent crime
has been rising across the country since 2014 and the Government is failing in their basic duty
to keep people safe.”
Official statistics released in
April showed the number of
homicides in London had surged
by 44 per cent in the past year.
In the first 100 days of 2018
alone, 52 people were killed in
London, raising serious concerns
about how to tackle violent crime
on the city’s streets.
Stabbing was the main cause,
though many also died from gunshot wounds.
Eleven of those killed were
teenagers, but almost as many
were in their 40s.
The majority of victims were
men, and while the borough of
Haringey had the most incidents
with five, people have been killed
right across the city.
data, obtained by a Freedom of
Information Act request, covers
April 2015 to December last year.
Officers flew on 13,763 flights
– about 14 trips a day – as the
force suffered budget cuts and
£1billion savings demands.
The flights bill could fund 283
extra police officers for a year.
The alliance said it was
“inappropriate” to spend so
much on premium flights when
Londoners were hit by a rise in
violent crime. Duncan Simpson,
a policy analyst with the group,
said: “It is completely
unacceptable that we are taxed
to pay for luxury flights that few
of us could ever enjoy ourselves.
“Police will have to take flights
occasionally, but it is difficult to
understand why they should be
travelling so expensively,
especially at a time of budget
constraints. Of course taxpayers
appreciate the dangerous work
the police do, but there are ways
to bring down costs.”
A Scotland Yard spokesman
said the cheapest fare suitable
for the traveller’s needs was
always purchased and business
class seats were usually only for
flights of six hours or longer.
Many of the flights involved
urgent anti-terror investigations
and probes into international
organised crime networks, the
spokesman said, adding: “The
MPs have consistently sought to
reduce the cost of travel in recent
years, in part due to a more
effective booking service and an
even greater emphasis on
obtaining best value for money.”
The Met has around 30,000
police officers and an annual
budget of about £3billion.
SUCCESSIVE governments have got their
approach to violence on the streets of the
UK all wrong.
The latest thinking is approaching
things on county lines – the idea that
drug dealers are leaving cities to move
into rural areas.
But this over-simplified thinking
ignores the fact that most of the
shootings and stabbings are still
happening in London.
And I’m afraid that when it comes to
policy, both the Government and the
police need to go back to the drawing
board and begin with public health-led
education from an early age.
For far too long, as a society we have
been ignoring the fact that we have a big
problem with violence.
We are only now starting to get agitated
by it because the perpetrators are getting
younger. But this is because they are
seeing the acceptance of violence in
older people.
Frontline services have known this
violence has been going on for a long
time. The masses are becoming alarmed
because it is spreading and it’s no longer
just black kids with guns in bad areas.
The Government’s strategy around
gangs over the past eight years has
not been correct and did not have a real
handle, or understanding, of what’s going
on and what to do about it.
Ministers do not want to go back to
the drawing board as this would be an
admission of failure. But to avoid more
bloodshed on our streets, I’m afraid this
really is the only way.

Judge locks up
bully after she
turns her back
on him in court
A FURIOUS judge branded a teenager a “bully” and ordered her to
be remanded into custody after she
turned her back on him in the dock.
Xena Randell, 19, was hauled into
court after she shoved frail 70-yearold Marion Ryan to the ground after
a row at an outside market.
Ms Ryan suffered a fractured
pelvis, cracked ribs and a head injury
in the incident.
Randell, who has a string of 49
offences with 13 convictions, was
arrested and admitted assault when
she appeared at Warwick Crown
Court last Friday. Judge Anthony
Potter remanded her into custody
after she deliberately turned her
back on him in the dock and refused
to face him when he offered her the
chance to live with her mother
rather than face prison.
He told the court: “She has to
understand that whatever acts the
juvenile court have taken, she’s in
the Crown Court now, and the Crown
Court will not be bullied.”
Addressing Randell, he said: “In
my judgment you are a bully, and
you have relied on other people’s
concern as justification for your

dated her as much by your presence
as by your actions. Pushing with
force a woman old enough to be your
grandmother is disgraceful.
“I am far from convinced you don’t
deserve a prison sentence now.”
Randell attacked Ms Ryan, who
suffers from osteoporosis and
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, at Wellesbourne Market, near
Stratford-upon-Avon, in Warwickshire, last August.
Prosecutor Caroline Harris said
Ms Ryan, who knew Randell, called
the teenager a “selfish cow” after
she was late meeting her.
Ms Harris said: “The complainant
called the defendant a ‘selfish cow’
for being away so long, and the
defendant pushed her with some
force. It caused her to fall to the
ground, landing on her bottom and
striking her head.”
When Randell was arrested, she
said she had pushed the pensioner
out of the way “because she was in
my space”. The court heard Randell
had a suspended sentence for
assaulting a police officer at the time
of the attack.
Turaj Hodge, defending, said: “She
suffers an inability to cope with
stressful situations because of the
very difficult upbringing she has
had. And when she perceives she is
under threat she reacts violently.
“She felt under threat from [Ms
Ryan] who accepts she called her a
‘selfish cow’, and in response Miss
Randell pushed her because of a
perceived threat.”
The judge adjourned the case and
remanded Randell, from Walsall,
West Midlands, into custody. The
Daily Express – through our Respect
For The Elderly crusade – has
consistently called for tougher
sentences for criminals who attack

of Action on Elder Abuse, said: “This
is an absolutely appalling case.
“As well as terrifying and seriously
injuring her victim, the perpetrator
has shown total disdain for the law
with her disrespectful actions in
“It’s a case that sums up exactly
why we are campaigning for elder
abuse to be classed as an aggravated
offence, similar to hate crimes.
“It’s the only way the lowlifes
like this who prey on older people
are going to get the message
that society won’t tolerate this kind
of criminality. We need a proper
The charity estimates, based on
academic research and independent
polling, there are around one million
victims of elder abuse each year.
This includes physical, financial,
psychological and sexual abuse, and
neglect, the great majority of these
offences being criminal in nature.
Despite this, during 2016/17 there
were just 2,856 successful convictions of crimes against older people,
according to Crown Prosecution
Service figures.
This shows the huge disparity
between the estimated prevalence
of offences and the 0.3 per cent of
actual convictions, the charity said.
Elderly care costs ‘should be capped at £50k’
PENSIONERS should have their
care costs capped at £50,000 and
should not spend more than a
quarter of the value of their
assets on care home bills.
The cap would be paid for by
the introduction of property taxes
worth £2.3billion, according to a
think tank’s final report which is
published today.
Council tax should be
abolished in its current form and
taxes levied on up-to-date
property values, Resolution
Foundation’s Intergenerational
Commission concludes.
This would allow the threshold
at which people with assets
would have to start paying for
their care to be set at £150,000
– but with a £50,000 cost cap.
The elderly would not be forced
to sell their homes and all local
authorities should allow
payments to be made after the
person’s death – potentially
aligned with deferred payments
of the new property tax.
Former pensions minister
Baroness Altmann said: “Social
care funding comes mostly from
those people who need care, in
the form of a draconian meanstest which takes away almost all
their life savings and assets.
“Successive governments have
failed to prepare for the costs of
rising numbers of older people
needing to be looked after.
“Care funding is left to local
authorities whose budgets have
been squeezed for years. They
cannot afford to pay the full cost
of care for those who qualify for
council support, so they pay less
than it costs care providers to
provide the care.
“Those companies then charge
private payers a premium to make
up the shortfall. So not only do
families have to pay for their own
care, they also have to pay for
others too.”
The Commission says a new
intergenerational contract is
needed to tackle the challenges
facing Britons young and old.
Our ageing population is set to
push up public spending by
£24billion by 2030 and £63billion
by 2040.
But the question of who pays is
causing friction between older
people – who say they paid their
taxes so they can be taken care
of in old age – and younger
workers who see themselves
saddled with bigger tax bills.
To readdress the balance, the
Commission is also calling for a
£2.3billion NHS levy on pensioner
earnings and says 25-year-olds
should be offered a £10,000
Citizen’s Inheritance.
David Willetts of Resolution
Foundation, said: “Replacing
council tax with a progressive
property tax will provide the
funding care desperately needs.
“And a system where those
with assets pay for their care,
with strict caps to prevent costs
spiralling, will finally give people
the assurance they need that our
care system is there for them if
they need it.”

BRITAIN sizzled on a recordbreaking May Day Bank Holiday
yesterday as temperatures soared to
84F (28.8C).
And millions made the most of the
clear blue skies as they headed to
seaside resorts.
The scorcher put the Spanish sunshine island of Ibiza (61F) in the
shade, with temperatures peaking in
Northolt, west London, yesterday
afternoon where it nudged past the
previous early May Bank Holiday
record from 1995 (83.4F).
The May Day Bank Holiday was
introduced in 1978.
With the thermometer reading
higher than in Miami, around 250,000
headed to the beach in Brighton
over the weekend while more than
100,000 descended on Bournemouth.
Seafront car parks were full by
noon and the majority of the resort’s
3,000 deckchairs were snapped up
by early risers.
Yesterday traffic queued for more
than 15 miles from the south coast
to the A31 in the New Forest.
And that was not the only place
where people baked, as huge tailbacks formed on many roads leading
to popular resorts.
On the railways, furious daytrippers faced horrendous journeys
to Brighton after the mainline from
London was closed due to engineering work. Passengers faced waits of
up to two hours for replacement
buses before extra vehicles were
drafted in.
The scene yesterday
as more than 100,000

over the weekend
Southern Rail, which runs trains
on the main line from London Victoria to Brighton, told passengers: “It
is strongly advised to not travel
towards Brighton today.”
Meanwhile, travellers desperate
to catch flights at Gatwick were horrified to be told: “Some trains running from London to Gatwick Airport will be cancelled to prevent
further overcrowding.”
Airline passengers heading to
southern France also faced delays
and cancellations due to strike
action at Marseille air-traffic control
centre, which covers many Mediterranean destinations.
In Cambridgeshire one paraglider
was killed and another seriously
injured following a mid-air collision
yesterday morning.
The surviving paraglider was airlifted to hospital in Nottingham with
potentially life-changing injuries.
Temperatures are expected to
cool slightly from today as the warm
jet stream moves diagonally south
east across the UK and is replaced
by cooler air.
And the weather is to become
mixed as the May 19 wedding of
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at
Windsor draws near. But Met Office

warmer spells were expected, most
likely across the south and east of

The bravest bride of all
Woman marries days after losing arm in crocodile horror
A BRIDE whose arm was bitten off by a crocodile has married her fiance days after the
attack that nearly cost her life.
Zanele Ndlovu and Jamie Fox
were canoeing on the Zambezi
river when the crocodile reared
up out of the water and tore off
her right arm and badly bit her
left hand.
Jamie hauled her back into
the boat and bound what was
left of her arm with a makeshift
tourniquet before his wife-tobe was rushed to hospital.
Zanele, 25, a former national
tennis player for Zimbabwe and
British-born Jamie were planning to get married at Victoria
Despite the horrifying accident, the pair were married on
Sunday at the Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe,
where Zanele is recovering.

One guest said: “It is a quite
remarkable love story and it
really does show their love for
each other.
“Their feelings and love for
each other are even stronger
than before if anything”.
A family friend described how
the attack happened. He said:
Zanele and Jamie are all smiles as they are married in hospital
“The crocodile gripped her arm
and ripped it off while her partner made frantic efforts to save
her. They are lucky to be alive
“The boats used in that activity are inflatable and the crocodile attacked their vessel and in
the process deflated it before
attacking her.”
Canoe trips on the Zambezi,
which forms part of the border
between Zimbabwe and Zambia, are popular with tourists
keen to see wildlife.
Holidaymakers paddle their
canoe under the watch of a

fatal attacks on people.
Last month a drunken wedding party guest lost an arm
and was badly bitten when he
jumped into a crocodile pool.
Colin Miller, 21, had climbed

a pool that houses three crocodiles. He was rescued when the
reptiles released him to fight
over his severed arm.

New drugs craze and a
deadly game of roulette
Express man Dixon ordered online
THE terrifying lottery facing thrillseeking teenagers who buy the prescription drug Xanax online is today
exposed by the Daily Express.
Our investigation highlights the
potentially deadly risk youngsters
face when trying to obtain the highly
addictive anti-anxiety medication
for recreational use.
One site offering Xanax for sale in
fact supplied us with Tramadol, an
equally controversial opiate painkiller linked to hundreds of deaths.
MP Bambos Charalambous said:
“These young people don’t know
what they are putting into their bodies. They have no control at all.”
Rick Bradley, of the anti-abuse
charity Addaction, said: “Purchases
are either on the clean [legitimate]
or the dark web or on the street.
“The clean web is safer because it
will be dispensed with information
which might enable the user to take
the drug more safely.”
Mr Bradley, who also sits on a new
substances watchdog for Public
Health England, added: “But that
doesn’t make it safe at all.”
The Daily Express set out to
establish how easy it would be to
buy Xanax – trade name for the
tranquiliser alprazolam – amid a
chilling surge in its recreational use.
Because it relaxes brain activity,
the pills induce a feeling of mellow
drowsiness combined with heightened confidence.
UK authorities treat it as a “Class
C” controlled drug, and it can be
obtained legally on private prescription, although not from the NHS.
Worried parents have warned that
their children have become violent
and troubled after Xanax produced
a dramatic change of personality.
Two young women hanged themselves in separate incidents after
taking Xanax and dozens of schoolchildren have needed hospital treatment for its effects.
Our investigator bought a batch
of pills advertised as Xanax on a
legitimate-looking website.
Run by British-registered firm
United Pharmacy, offers a
dazzling array of prescription pills.
Our order of 30 pills was taken
without any questions about age,
medical history or if a prescription
was available. After processing our

cities, rural towns and villages. It

shadowy internet suppliers make
a fortune from the weakness and
suffering of others.

15-year-olds in England who said
they had taken drugs increased by
over 50 per cent in just one year.

After taking Xanax for exam pressure, Raven Hunt hanged herself
Georgia Jackson killed herself after becoming ‘uncharacteristically angry’
RAVEN Hunt’s family demanded
a criminal investigation after she
hanged herself while suffering
from Xanax withdrawal.
Mother Emmy Hunt, 42,
believes her daughter was
supplied with the anti-anxiety
pills by a member of her student
circle in Bristol.
“We know the withdrawal of
Xanax can lead to suicidal
thoughts,” she said. “This dealer
gives Xanax to the girls to get
them on it and then gets them to
pay for it after.
“We feel he needs to answer for
the role we believe he has played
in Raven’s death.”
Miss Hunt, 21, had taken the
pills for six weeks to help battle
anxiety ahead of her final exams
at the University of the West of
England. After she came off the
drug she struggled with
depression and was found dead
two weeks later in a wooded
nature reserve in Bristol.
Miss Hunt, who had wanted to
be a social worker, was found to
have traces of Xanax in her blood
after the tragedy in April last year.
Her mother, who lives in
Southampton, added: “I will
never get over it or accept it. She
meant the world to
me. As a family,
we will only be

payment of $170 (£120), the order
shipped from India and took almost
three weeks to arrive. But analysis
by a Home Office-licensed laboratory found the pills were Tramadol.
The drug is especially dangerous
to those suffering from depression
or addiction which are hitting teens
with increasing frequency. For teenagers who buy Xanax online, the
reality is they face a game of roulette
with no way of knowing what will be
sent their way.
Mr Charalambous, who represents
Enfield Southgate, in north London,
said the craze has been fuelled by
rap music stars and social media.
He said: “Xanax is like Valium but
20 times more powerful. It is highly
addictive and the body craves it.
One of its effects is amnesia, so the
person has no idea where they have
been or what they have done.
“Another is that they become
aggressive in their behaviour. They
can become physically violent.”
Mr Charalambous, who was
alerted by a constituent whose
daughter became a user, added:
“The problem is much more wide-
death rate from drug abuse is now
three times the average for Europe
as a whole.
Now health experts are warning
of a crisis with a drug that has
started to make headlines for all
the wrong reasons.
The only good thing is that we
are at last beginning to tell the
truth about drugs – how cheap
they are, how available they are,
and how dangerous they are.
Xanax is a powerful and
addictive anti-anxiety drug that is
now the fifth-most prescribed
drug in the USA. In a recent
survey of 85,000 people aged
13-24 in the UK, over a third said
they had friends using Xanax.
Only six per cent had not heard
of it. And yet Xanax is not
available on the NHS. So what are
these young people really taking?
Through the internet, young
people can buy fake Xanax,
packaged just like the real thing,
and probably costing less than a
pound per pill.
But it will have been made in
unregulated laboratories in the
Far East and adulterated with
anything that makes users like it
– and crave it.
Often this is the opioid fentanyl,
50 times stronger than heroin and
incredibly cheap to make.
Needless to say, it’s a killer.

How high cholesterol can
raise risk of Alzheimer’s
CHOLESTEROL could trigger the
beginning of dementia disease Alzheimer’s, scientists said last night.
British researchers have shown how
the fatty substance commonly linked
with heart disease could also speed
up the progression of the incurable
brain-wasting illness.
Cholesterol, vital for the normal
functioning of the body, is mainly
made by the liver, but can also be
found in some foods. High cholesterol
itself does not usually cause any
symptoms, but it increases the risk of
serious health conditions.
In the brain, it acts as a catalyst
which triggers the formation of toxic
clusters of amyloid, a hallmark of
Experts are unclear whether diet
plays a role in this process, but said
the breakthrough could speed up the
arrival of new treatments.
Professor Michele Vendruscolo of
Cambridge University, which led the
research, said: “The question for us
now is not how to eliminate cholesterol from the brain, but about how to
control cholesterol’s role in Alzheimer’s through the regulation of its
interaction with amyloid-beta.
“We’re not saying cholesterol is the
only trigger for the aggregation process, but it’s certainly one of them.”
Researchers found cholesterol was
the beginning of a toxic chain reaction which culminates in the death of
brain cells. The link between amyloid
and Alzheimer’s is already well estab-

likely to suffer a stroke.
Researchers at Peking University

remarkably lower stroke risk with
folic acid – a simple, safe and
inexpensive treatment.”
PEOPLE with high blood pressure
could soon be able to monitor their
salt intake via an oral sensor.
US scientists have developed a

at how the amyloid starts to aggregate in the brain.
Scientists from Cambridge and
Sweden’s Lund University found cholesterol can act as a trigger.
In Alzheimer’s, amyloid molecules
stick to lipid cell membranes containing cholesterol.
Once fused, amyloid molecules have
a greater chance to come into contact
with each other and start to form
clusters, with cholesterol speeding up
the process by a factor of 20. The find-

diet – the brain makes its own supply
rather than drawing cholesterol from
the blood.
Trials of cholesterol-busting drugs
like statins have not shown they can
treat or prevent Alzheimer’s.
Dr Tim Shakespeare of the Alzheimer’s Society said: “Previous research
has shown people with high cholesterol levels in mid-life are slightly
more likely to develop dementia, but
until now we didn’t know why.
“This study has demystified the
link. The findings suggest managing
cholesterol levels in the brain could
be a target for future treatments, but
it’s still unclear whether there’s any
effect from our diet.”
Dr David Reynolds of Alzheimer’s
Research UK, said: “Around 20 per
cent of the body’s total cholesterol is
found in the brain.
“Cholesterol in our diet can have a
big impact on heart health and maintaining a healthy blood supply to the
brain can help to keep dementia risk
as low as possible.”

TEENAGE girl, who admitted at
Warwick Crown Court shoving
over a 70-year-old woman during
a row in the street, made the
mistake of deliberately turning her back
on Judge Anthony Potter while she was
in the dock.
Xena Randell already has a string of
some 50 offences to her name so she
had probably become used to the softly,
softly approach which is the usual way
with young offenders.
But this time her luck had run out
and the judge, understandably furious
about her lack of respect and manners,
sent her into custody to consider what
she had done. He said: “She has to
understand that whatever acts the
juvenile court have taken she’s in the
crown court now and the crown court
will not be bullied.”
Until that moment it seems he had
been considering a non-custodial
sentence because she could have gone
to live with her mother and therefore
possibly deserved another chance.
When this unpleasant young woman
has had a chance to cool her heels it
may well be that she does receive a noncustodial sentence – no more than a rap
on the knuckles. But good for Judge
Potter in reminding her of the respect
due to a court of law.
In the past the respect and fear
engendered by a brush with the law
were often enough to deter young
tearaways who mended their ways as
a result. But authority is on the run
now, handicapped by political
correctness and the strange reversal
whereby the rights of the victims of
crimes seem to be deemed lesser than
the rights of the perpetrators.
Judge Potter’s intervention was most
likely the result of sheer exasperation at
this girl’s behaviour. But good for him.
HY are Scotland Yard’s top
brass flying premium economy,
business or first class? New
figures have revealed that these
most senior coppers have been enjoying
£5million worth of luxury air travel in
a period of just under three years.
This really won’t do, especially at
a time when the public is so concerned
about a seemingly unstoppable rise in
violent crime. A sum like that could
surely pay for some much-needed
bobbies on the beat.
VEN archbishops can suffer from
nerves and Justin Welby, the
Archbishop of Canterbury, is
no exception, confessing to
prenuptial jitters ahead of the wedding
of Harry and Meghan. He takes comfort
from (of all things) a Stormzy song with
the line, “I stay prayed up and get the
job done”. Good advice for us all surely,
in most situations.

T’S said that what separates human beings from
animals is that we learn
not to repeat our mistakes.
Well there are exceptions
to every rule. Remember
Project Fear?
In the Brexit referendum
campaign the key message of
the Remain camp was that if
we dared to vote Leave the roof
would fall in on us. The country
would be plunged into recession. Jobs would go overnight.
Investment would dry up. And
the City would decamp en
masse to Frankfurt.
The then chancellor George
Osborne even unveiled a draft
budget that he said he would
have to implement within days
of a Leave vote. Public spending – especially on the NHS –
would have to be slashed and
taxes increased to plug a supposed £30billion “black hole”.
It was all of course – every
dot and comma of it – utter
rubbish. It was political campaigning at its worst: using
entirely spurious suppositions
to engender as much fear as
possible in the hope that supine
voters would be cowed into
supporting Remain.
But 17.4 million voters told
Mr Osborne and the rest of the
Remain campaign what they
could do with Project Fear.
You’d think, wouldn’t you, that
the Remainers would have
learned their lesson? You’d
think that they’d have learned
we won’t be bullied by scare
tactics into submitting to their
Euro-fanaticism. But no.
HE Remainers appear
to have ignored every
lesson from their own,
awful, referendum campaign
and instead adopted as their
strategy a playbook of the
world’s worst political advice,
beginning by adhering to the
motto: “If it hasn’t worked
once, try again.”
Because Project Fear is back.
This weekend Business Secretary Greg Clark said that we
have to have a customs union
with the EU – or a “partnership” as the Remainers call it
because they think the word is
less objectionable to the
17.4 million who voted for Brexit
– because thousands of jobs
would be lost if we negotiated
our own trade agreements.
He went on to say that the
so-called transition period, due
to end in 2021, could be
extended, again because it
might be the only way to save
jobs. In a classic piece of political double-speak he said that
ALARMIST: Business Secretary Greg Clark appearing on the Andrew Marr Show
of course he wasn’t talking
about extending the transition.
No, no, no. How could anyone
think that?
“It wouldn’t be a question of
extending the transition. It
would be, as it were, implementing as soon as you can do.
There will be different parts
that can be done immediately.
There will be things that will
take more time.” In other
words, extending the transition. This is what we are up
against: Remainers who will
say the very opposite of what
they mean because they know
they can’t be open about how
hard they are fighting Brexit.
Last week, for example, a
majority of the so-called Brexit
War Cabinet made clear to
Theresa May that her preferred
option of the UK remaining in a
customs union with the EU
should be dropped.
Quite right too. The worst
possible outcome of Brexit
would be to notionally leave
but to nonetheless remain in a
customs union. That way we
would have zero influence on
the EU’s trade policy but would
be forced to abide by it – and be
completely unable to make any
deals of our own.
Making our own trade deals
was a crucial part of the Leave
campaign. The slogan “take
back control” goes to the heart
of the debate. And it is sophistry of the very worst kind to
pretend, as the Remainers do,
that this is all an entirely separate argument from the argument over leaving. The two are
But despite the Brexit War
Cabinet adopting the only sensible stance – that leaving the
EU means leaving the EU’s customs union too – Remainers
simply won’t accept Brexit. So
they have turned again to
Project Fear.
Mr Clark is a decent man but
like so many Remainers he
cannot abide the prospect of
Brexit. And so on Sunday he
said that a customs union is
“still on the table, still a live
option”. He went on to talk
employed by Toyota, implying
that if we were outside a customs union those jobs would
vanish. In one sense this is all
very odd. That is the very
definition of Project Fear:
attempting to put the fear of
God into us that the economy
will grind to a halt outside a
customs union.
In public Mrs May has
apparently been unambiguous.
This weekend she repeated
her pledge that we would
leave the single market and
customs union.
HE spoke of her “determination to make a
success of Brexit by
leaving the customs union and
building a new relationship
with the EU that takes back
control of our borders, our laws
and our money”. But read those
words carefully. If we leave
“the” existing customs union
only to join “a” newly agreed
customs union then we have
supposedly fulfilled Mrs May’s
This is the kind of game playing that has led to politicians
being held in contempt. The
referendum was clear. Pretending it was about the difference
between “the” and “a” customs
union fools no one but does
take us all for fools.
You might have thought the
battle for Brexit was won when
17.4 million of us said we wanted
to leave. As we’ve seen this
week, however – and the House
of Lords has shown – that was
the first in a long series of
battles. The revival of Project
Fear is the latest attempt of the
Remainers to stop Brexit.

N 1817 an actor known as Mr
Cummins was working at the
Leeds Theatre in Hunslet. He
was in a play called The
Tragedy Of Jane Shore, in
which a noble husband generously forgives his wife her sins after
she repents. The audience loved it.
But just after Mr Cummins uttered
his very last line he dropped dead
centre stage. The medical verdict
was “ossification of the heart.”
Those were the days! There’s
every chance that Mr Cummins felt
unwell before he went on. He might
even have had several heart attacks
during previous shows. But he
wasn’t going to miss a performance. The show must go on even if
it meant his corpse got the

about Dr Foster
Jones, who has
just pulled out
of the last four
performances of
West End play
Frozen due to a
mystery illness.
She was playing
a mother whose

killed by a paedophile. Not a
nice subject but
her reviews were
her a speedy
recovery and all
that. But claiming, as she did,
that the part is
emotionally too “draining” is
surely no excuse. It’s just a
part like any other. Moreover
people had paid a whopping
ticket price to see her performance. This sort of dismal
bailing out is now routine in
the theatre.

LEAD actor in the
new revival of Chess,
the Tim Rice/Abba
musical, Tim Howar, missed a
preview because his wife had
gone into labour. The story was
widely reported as though
being with his partner while
she gave birth was right and
natural. But look at it another
way: people had paid to see
him do his job. Babies appearing inconveniently are no
excuse. He had a show to do.
Why was he rushing to hospital to
sit mopping his partner’s brow?
That’s what midwives are for.
The proper response would be to
send a good luck text, finish the
show, take a bow, then hurtle round
to the hospital with a gift for his
missus and a cigar for himself. Late
for the baby or not, Tim would have
had a wonderful anecdote for the
rest of his life.
If you’re absent in the lead part
then the offence is all the worse.
The most famous example of this is
Daniel Day-Lewis, who in 1989 fled
the stage as Hamlet because when
the ghost came on Daniel saw his
own father’s ghost – or something.
He has never returned to the stage.
His performance was actually
quite boring so it was no great
loss and anyway he was replaced

grew up during the war inherited
from their parents a spirit of
“get on with it”. That spirit was in
every walk of life, including showbusiness. Now it’s gone, possibly
thanks to namby EU workplace
directives and a new creed of
me-first spinelessness.
Congratulations are due to Alex
Reid, Katie Price’s ex, who went
onstage (as the Genie) in panto in
Wrexham 30 minutes after his
adored father died. “I know how
proud my father would have been
of me on stage, I felt his strength
flow through me. Every second of
that performance, every cheer from
the crowd, every laugh, every round
of applause was, in my heart, loud
enough to let him know I honoured
him,” he touchingly blogged.
Sheridan Smith could have taken
a leaf out of his book since she went
absent for weeks from Funny Girl,
due in part to her father’s illness,
and stress. Honouring his commitment, Reid was doing the right
thing by his dear old dad. Actors

She’d rather die than not appear.
She was schooled by legendary

was done by Stephen Fry in
a play called Cell Mates
about British spy George Blake
who, ironically, also did a bunk – to
Moscow. Fry, who was suffering
from depression, faxed apologies
to the cast, hopped on a ferry to
Bruges, never to return to the show.
Not since Agatha Christie went
missing for a week has there been
such a famous disappearance.
The night that Fry went AWOL
his understudy arrived at the theatre 45 minutes before curtain up.
Expecting another evening playing
patience he was told he would be
appearing in a few minutes.
The play, however, never recovered. Fry’s co-star Rik Mayall was

he would throw up before performances from sheer nerves.

for non-appearance. But not if you
are Sarah Bernhardt. The most
extreme form of trouperism is the
example of this great French
actress who came to grief while
performing Victorien Sardou’s play
Tosca (on which the opera is based)
in which the heroine hurls herself
off a castle wall.
One night it all went horribly
wrong. Her leg was shattered and
her career was seemingly over. The
“Divine Sarah” was, however, nothing if not tough. She made the decision to have her leg amputated, a
dangerous operation back in 1915.
She tried out several wooden legs,
found one she liked and went on
appearing on stage right up to her
death aged 78. She even played
Hamlet to great acclaim.
I am sure theatre producers
smile understandingly and in
private rant furiously at today’s
performers’ drop-of-a-hat absences.
For the real pros, having your leg
off is no reason to miss curtain up.

one thing: Jeremy
Corbyn is not the
phenomenon that he and
his supporters believe.
He is just the head of a
relatively small cult composed of
ragtag socialist and Marxist
agitators, single-issue obsessives,
muck stirrers, wishful thinkers
and compulsive demonstrators.
Let’s be generous and say they
amount to half a million or so.
Admittedly they make a lot of
noise and fill a lot of space on
social media but there are more
than 40 million voters in England

What Corbyn and his shouty
mates can’t grasp is that
everyone isn’t like them, thank

quiet, busy lives and give hardly a
thought to politics and “issues”
unless something impacts on
them personally.
But ordinary people living

I doubt if anyone really knows the
answer. Or ever will.
THE waste of life caused by
the NHS failure to call in
thousands of women for breast
scans has brought to the fore a
contradiction that doctors have
known for some time but have
been reluctant to make a noise
about: the test does more harm
than good. For every woman
saved three suffer unnecessary,
excruciating treatment for minor
problems that would never have
turned into cancer.
That is no help to women, for
whom breast cancer is a constant
worry. Do they take the test and
risk going through hell for
nothing, or gamble that it will
save them? A similar dilemma
faces men with the prostate
cancer test, which has resulted in
many painful operations and
ongoing problems where cancer
was not present.

What is the Iran nuclear deal?
Iran agreed to rein in its nuclear
programme in a 2015 agreement
struck with the US, UK, Russia,
China, France and Germany. Tehran
agreed to significantly cut its stores of
centrifuges, enriched uranium and
heavy water, all key components for
nuclear weapons.
Why did Iran agree to it?
The country had been hit with
devastating sanctions by the United
Nations, US and the European Union
that are estimated to have cost it tens

Why is the deal under threat?
It was the key foreign policy

target for successor Donald Trump.

Mr Trump made his opposition clear

preventing Iran from building a nuclear

Boris: Why ‘fixer’ Trump
should get a Peace Prize
DONALD Trump could win the
Nobel Peace Prize if he can “fix”
North Korea and Iran, Boris Johnson claimed yesterday.
The Foreign Secretary made his
prediction on the US president’s
favourite TV programme, Fox &
Friends, while in America to convince Mr Trump not to dump the
controversial Iran nuclear deal.
The President said he would be
announcing his decision on the deal
later today.
Comparing Mr Trump favourably
to his predecessor Barack Obama,
who was awarded the prize at the
start of his presidency before he
had achieved anything in office, Mr
Johnson said “of course” he could
win the same award.
He said: “If Trump can fix North
Korea and the Iran nuclear deal,
then I don’t see why he’s any less
of a candidate for the Nobel Peace
Prize than Obama.”
Mr Johnson stressed that the UK
shared Mr Trump’s concerns over
the Iran nuclear deal, which has
seen sanctions ended in exchange
for guarantees that the Middle East
state known as a sponsor of international terrorism stops developing nuclear weapons.
Mr Johnson said: “The President
is right to see flaws in [the deal]
and he set a very reasonable challenge to the world.
“He said, ‘Look, Iran is behaving
badly, has a tendency to develop
intercontinental ballistic missiles.
We’ve got to stop that. We’ve got to

the region. We’ve got to be tougher’.”
But he warned there was “no plan
B” and if Mr Trump scrapped the
deal, he had to ask: “What next?”
Mr Johnson said: “Are we
seriously saying that we will bomb
those facilities, is that really a
realistic possibility?”
The Foreign Secretary, who followed TV medic Dr Oz on the show,
urged Mr Trump not to “throw the
baby out with the bathwater” and
work with him to improve the deal.
Among the many elements that
needed fixing, Mr Johnson con-
ceded, was the “sunset clause” that
means “after 2025, the current deal
allows Iran to go forward fast with
enrichment programmes which
could lead to a nuclear weapon,
and no sanctions go back on”.
He added: “Let me just remind
you, if they do get a nuclear weapon
you’re going to get an arms race in
the Middle East. You’re going to
have the Saudis wanting one, the
Egyptians, the Emiratis.
“It’s already a very, very dangerous state, we don’t want to go down
that road. There doesn’t seem to
me at the moment to be a viable
military solution.” British, French
and German diplomats have been
working with the US behind the
scenes to save the agreement.
Mr Johnson said the current deal
restricted Iran’s nuclear programme and “now that these handcuffs are in place, I see no possible
advantage in casting them aside”.
Sir Kim Darroch, the UK’s
ambassador to the United States,
said the Iran agreement was “a
good deal” but efforts were under
way to “find some language,
produce some action that meets
the President’s concerns”.

THERE’S no smoke or fire for Ed Sheeran
who is celebrating the first anniversary of him
ditching cigarettes.
The hitmaker took to his Instagram account
over the weekend to boast about managing
to kick the unhealthy habit for 365 days.
Alongside a black-and-white photograph of
him on stage, he wrote: “Celebrating one
year being a non-smoker today.”
The 27-year-old has previously blamed his
weight gain on bad habits. He said at the
time: “I chain-smoked. I drank a lot of alcohol
and ate very unhealthy…”
Although he’s had no qualms about binning
the fags, the singer won’t give up the booze
and has even built a home pub! “There’s an
underground tunnel to get there that you can
close off,” he explains.
“So if I have a party everyone goes into the
pub and no one can get in the house so you
get no one raiding the cupboards or
smashing anything.” That’s a relief!
he’ll turn down projects that offer to
pay him more than his female
co-stars and will use his Hollywood
status to fight inequality.
“It’s about implementation,” the
Sherlock star, 41, tells Radio Times.
“Equal pay and a place at the table
are the central tenets of feminism.
Look at your quotas. Ask what
women are being paid and say, ‘If
she’s not paid the same as the men,
I’m not doing it.’”
He has vowed to fight for equality
in his industry using SunnyMarch –
the new production company he has
formed with friend Adam Ackland.
“I’m proud that Adam and I are the
only men in our production
company,” he declares. “Our next
project is a female story with a
female lens about motherhood.
“If it’s centred around my name to
get investors then we can use that
attention for a raft of female projects.
Half the audience is female!”

audience is there. It’s about facilitating
platforms for talent. If you do that the
combination is combustible.”

SIR TIM RICE reckons that Brexit
won’t affect our chances of winning
Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest...
because we’re unlikely to succeed anyway!
“Brexit is utterly irrelevant to Eurovision. Why
would it be relevant?” the 73-year-old lyricist
and passionate Brexiteer tells Day & Night.
“I think there are so many groups voting in
Eastern Europe so politically it is very difficult
for us to win whether we are in Brexit or not.”
Despite the odds against it, the music
maestro – who once criticised his former
collaborator Andrew Lloyd Webber for not
joining him in backing Leave – has some hopes
for UK entry Storm from singer SuRie.
“I quite like our song this year to be honest,”
he says. “I watched the show it came from and
was surprised I was able to pick it, since I’m so
ancient. It was the best song.”

IS MAIDEN speech to
the House of Commons
silenced the normally
rowdy chamber with the
power and clarity of its
importance of mental health
provision. And now three years
after Johnny Mercer was elected
as a Conservative MP he has followed it up with a deeply personal insight. He was, he admits,
“a pretty disturbed young man”.
The former commando’s commitment to the cause comes not
only from the cases he witnessed
among his comrades while
serving three tours of Afghanistan but also from his first-hand
In a candid interview the
36-year-old former Army officer
has revealed that he had suffered
from mental health problems
before joining the Royal Artillery
after passing out from Sandhurst
in June 2003. His childhood
struggle with a “very nasty case
of OCD” continued throughout
his 20s when he would spend
hours switching lights on and off
and constantly washing his
hands. He also recited prayers.
But at that time, he says, there
was little public talk about
mental health and he had never
heard of obsessive compulsive
disorder. “I just thought I was
mad,” admits the MP for Plymouth Moor View. Tending to his
obsessions, in particular praying
many times a day, left him
The lack of sleep is what “really
starts to bite”. Religion dominated his upbringing
in a devout Baptist
family in Dartford,
Kent when he and his
seven siblings went to
church three times
on Sundays. No longer
a practising Christian
he has spoken of the
connection between
his troubles and his
family background as
a “delicate matter”.
But its legacy has
given the father-oftwo, who is married to
Felicity, whom he has
known since school, an
understanding of how
it feels to have a mental illness.
“One of the things
that really annoys me
is when someone says
‘I’m a bit OCD because
I like my Cokes to line
up in the fridge’,” he
says. “It’s like they want
to wear this OCD
badge. Those of us who
know it is one of the most debilitating illnesses.”
helped Mercer to overcome a mental disorder
which is associated with an
increased risk of suicide. He was
prescribed antidepressant fluoxetine at an Army mental health
hospital and underwent cognitive behavioural therapy. But the
greatest catalyst for recovery
came in Afghanistan where he
served with 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery.
Holding a fallen comrade as he
lay dying having been shot in the
face ultimately enabled him to
“press the reset button” on his
moments you think, ‘Well, what
is the point in me wasting my life
doing this stuff?’” he said of his
OCD symptoms. “The overloading of senses you get at war
drove it out of me,” he insists,
referring to this as “posttraumatic growth” [PTG].
War, he asserts, is “terrible at
the time but it can be lifeenhancing”. Although PTG is

HAVING long called for Arsène Wenger’s
sacking, Arsenal fan Piers Morgan admits the
French manager’s impending departure from

BRITISH boxers David Haye and Tony
Bellew, who had their second fight (won by
Bellew) at the weekend, are both known to
have their sights set on the big screen.
Haye has made no secret of his desire to

37-year-old’s bold prediction he would be
known as “an actor who used to do boxing”
by 2017 proved wide of the mark.
Meanwhile Bellew, 35, has already

commonplace among a lot of soldiers it is rarely discussed – an
oversight which he believes is
due to the emphasis placed on
post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) by some veterans’ charities as a means of raising funds.
This, he believes, is a problem
because it is “specifically advocating” a narrative that “veterans are mad, bad and dangerous” and results in an inaccurate
public perception of recovering
servicemen: “You’re either a hero
or you’re broken. Ninety-five per
cent of us are in the middle.”
However he says that a “culture of victimhood” has been
created in which veterans are
encouraged to diagnose themselves with PTSD, even if such a
diagnosis is incorrect. He believes
this behaviour is “disingenuous
to those who genuinely have
problems” and urges the impor-
tance of preserving mental
health resources for those who
“genuinely have problems”.
Although his friendship group
from Afghanistan was “ripped
apart by mental illness” he
believes that the mental health
provision on offer at the time
they served was “tokenistic” and
failed to properly identify vulnerable officers.
These issues weighed heavily
on his mind and propelled him to
stand as an MP in 2015, despite
never having voted in his life.
And they have resulted in a mission. Now he wants to change
the name of the Mental Health
Act to the Mental Illness Act –
suggesting that this rebranding
will help to differentiate every
day mental health issues from
clinical cases of mental illness. “I
want people to think very carefully about what mental health
actually is. When we want to
treat our mental health we take
time out, we make sure we sleep
properly. Mental illness is fundamentally different. You go see a
psychiatrist, you get treated by
the state.” His view is informed
by the breakdown suffered by a
military policeman in Afghanistan with whom he worked
closely on “grisly” tasks in 2012.
“My job was to sort of kill them
and his job was to take swabs
and identify the bodies,” he
explains, adding that a neardeath
colleague looking “like he’d
had a lobotomy – a total mental
“There is no point standing at
the bottom of a mountain and
thinking, ‘Wow that is a big
mountain’. You have to think,
‘How are we going to get up
there?’” he insists.
CHIPPER broadcaster Gyles Brandreth
relishes the memory of his brief teenage
meeting with legendary star Marlene Dietrich,
“My close encounter with
Marlene involved a
Rolls-Royce,” recalls
Brandreth, 18 at the time.
Remembering the late
Dietrich – then 64 – signing
autographs while sitting on
the car, he fondly adds in
The Oldie magazine: “It was
1966 – so she was wearing
a miniskirt. I was one of the fans in the right
place at the right time to help her off the roof
of the Rolls. Her legs thrust towards me and,
for a fleeting moment, I held her left thigh in
my hands.”
FAMOUSLY part of the “British Invasion”

Diet high in
eggs is ‘not
health risk’
EATING a dozen eggs a week
does not raise the risk of
suffering a heart attack or
stroke, a study claims.
Australian researchers found
eating up to 12 eggs per week
for a year did not increase
cardiovascular risk factors in
people with pre-diabetes and
Type 2 diabetes.
The study is an extension
of previous research that
found similar results over a
three-month period.
In the 12-month trial, subjects
aimed to maintain their weight
while embarking on a high-egg
(12 per week) or low-egg (less
than two per week) diet, with no
difference in cardiovascular risk
at the end of the trial.
Study leader Dr Nick Fuller
said: “Our research indicates
people do not need to hold back
from eating eggs as part of a
healthy diet. People on both the
high and low-egg diets lost an
equivalent amount of weight
and continued to lose it after the
weight loss phase had ended.”
The findings were published
in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition.

Jay and Karin Stone were shocked by complaint telling them to draw the blinds
A COUPLE responded to a
nasty note from neighbours
complaining of seeing them
naked with a sign saying:
“Stop looking through our
windows you Peeping Tom.”
Karin Stone, 33, and her DJ
husband Jay, 34, were stunned
to receive a letter asking them
to close their blinds as “we
are sick of seeing big bum, big
The Stones’ response to the nasty note, below,

The misspelt note, which from ‘neighbours’ warning them to cover up
was sent by “neighbours” last
week, read: “Would you please
close your blinds when getting dressed or undressing.
“We are sick of seeing big
bumbs big boobs and little
willy and we will report you
both for indecent exsposer.”
The couple, unsure who
sent the note, yesterday
posted a response in the window of their house in Lemington, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Office manager Karin said:
“On Friday I travelled down
to Norwich and my husband said, ‘You knocked on my door I would have said
will never believe it, we have got a note “I’m sorry” – but if they are that much
of a prude, they have gone into quite a

“He read out the note and I was like,

Lee. Inset – sporting
the look that inspired
Austin Powers – as a
folk-rock duo with
Gordon Waller in 1965
longer be topping the
charts but the 1960s pop
star-turned-producer isn’t
unduly worried. And the
reason is that stashed
secretly away in a vault is the
original handwritten music and
lyrics of a Paul McCartney song,
which Peter admits is his rainy day
fund should he ever need it.
The number is World Without
Love, a discarded Beatles track
written by Macca which he kindly
donated to the then unknown
Peter and his music partner Gordon
Waller, aka harmonising, cut glassaccented British folk rock duo
Peter and Gordon.
The mournful but catchy ditty
became a number one smash hit
for them on both sides of the Atlantic in 1964 as part of the “British
pop invasion” led by The Beatles
and made university student Peter
– older brother of McCartney’s
teenage actress girlfriend Jane
Asher – an overnight star.
“Paul wrote out the words and
the chords of the song for me on a
piece of paper,” recalls Peter. “You’d
better believe I’ve locked it away in
a safe for the time when the music
business goes completely to hell
and I can run to Sotheby’s like the
wind,” chortles the delightfully
humorous and self-deprecating
Peter, 73.
But with an estimated £35million
fortune from his work as a Grammywinning international music producer he is probably never likely to
need the money.
Still, McCartney living as a guest
for two years at the Asher parents’
home in London’s Wimpole Street
– Asher Snr was an eminent medical
consultant – certainly had its
advantages for aspiring musician
“Paul moved into our family
house, although he was often away
a lot on tour. We became friends
and he mentioned to me an
unfinished song of his, World Without Love.
“He explained it was unfinished
because John Lennon didn’t think
it was right for The Beatles. Then
Gordon and I got a record deal
after being spotted in the clubs
and signed by Norman Newell of
EMI records.”
Newell asked the duo if they had
any songs they’d like to record. “I
went back to Paul and said ‘Is that
song still on offer?’ and he said ‘yes’
and that was our first hit. I owe
Paul a huge debt of gratitude and it
changed my life for ever.”
It certainly did. Suddenly the
Ashers’ upper-middle-class and
academic family house (Peter’s
mother was a music professor)
became the home of not just
one but two chart-topping pop
stars – and a shrine for adoring
female fans.
Recalls ex-Westminster public
schoolboy Peter: “People inevitably
found out who lived there and we’d
have all these girls on the doorstep
which undoubtedly stretched the
patience of my father. Some of the
girls were there for me as well as
Paul. We both had fans, no question. Yes, it was fun that era.”
Peter, an unlikely-looking pop
idol – small, ginger and a selfconfessed “nerdy guy in glasses” –
found himself feted here and in the
USA. And as more hits came (some
also written by Macca) he quit
being a philosophy student at
King’s College, London.
As he recalls with still-boyish
enthusiasm: “I enjoyed being a pop
star. It was fantastic. All the music I
fell in love with, such as Buddy Holly’s, was American. To then arrive
in a place you’d been idolising and
be number one and see the New
York skyline and the jazz clubs...
“And then to be chased by
screaming girls who wanted to rip
your clothes off. Life doesn’t get
much better than that!” Peter and
Gordon also visited Los Angeles
where Peter now lives happily “by
the ocean in Malibu” with second
wife Wendy.
Recalling those early heady days
of fame he muses in his – now transatlantic – tones: “It was great. A
year earlier I’d been cycling off to
school in the rain and suddenly I’m
driving a Mustang Convertible
down Sunset Boulevard in the sun
being recognised by beautiful Californian blondes.”
Peter’s appearance later proved
the visual model for retro comedy
movie spy Austin Powers, which he
takes with typical good grace.
“There is a very evident comparison from old photos – the Buddy
Holly glasses, the hairdo and the
bad teeth – all of which I possessed,” he laughs.
But gentlemanly and cerebral
Peter was never a playboy like
Austin. “No not at all, I don’t
see myself as that. I was only mildly
‘shagadelic’. But I enjoyed the
OT that Peter was a
stranger to showbusiness.
Both he and sister Jane
were child actors. “In my first film
my mother was played by
Claudette Colbert and my father
by Jack Hawkins. I remember
kissing Claudette very enthusiastically aged eight.”
Later he played young Prince
Arthur in the popular TV series
Robin Hood starring Richard
Greene. “ I had to have archery lessons and riding lessons. I must
have had a princely air,” he jokes.
“Jane of course is the one who
stuck with acting and has made a
successful career.”
In 1965 Paul moved out of the
Ashers’ house to a St John’s Wood
“mansion” but in 1968 he and Jane
broke up after she discovered him
in bed with another girl.
Does Peter wish his friend and
his sister had stayed together?
(Jane famously refuses to discuss
her ex-romance.)
“I don’t indulge in any such speculation. I stay completely out of
that,” he says diplomatically. By
that time Peter and Gordon’s star
had faded and he was working as
chief A&R man at The Beatles’
company Apple.
“He and Jane did break up but I
still had my job at Apple and Paul
wanted me there.” Was it an awkward time? “I don’t really remember but I guess it all appeared as
separate matters to me.
“Paul and I don’t see each other
very often but when we do it’s very
friendly.” The last time they met,
he recalls, “I said to him ‘Do you
realise it’s 50 years since you gave
us World Without Love? If I’ve forgotten to thank you in the interim,
let me thank you now. Who knows
what my career would be were it
not for that song?’”
Peter discovered US soft rock
troubadour James Taylor in the
late 1960s and relocated to America
to become his manager and
producer of several hit albums.
He also launched the career of
Linda Ronstadt and has produced
many big names including Diana
Ross, Neil Diamond and most
recently Elton John and Ed
Sheeran. He presents a Beatlesthemed radio show.
Peter first revived his performing
career in 2005 when he and Gordon

HE WEDDING of Prince
Harry and Meghan Markle
will be the fifth royal
nuptials that former BBC
correspondent Jennie Bond
has attended. On this
occasion the journalist and TV
presenter will be covering the
historic event for Australian
channel ABC and as she dons
her new outfit on May 19 one thing
she won’t forget is to put in her
hearing aid.
After a manic few weeks of
making royal wedding films for
American and Canadian TV, Jennie
is particularly looking forward to
this event because for the first time
in years she knows she will be able
to hear every word.
Seven years ago Jennie, 67, who
lives in a five-acre valley
overlooking the sea in Devon with
her husband Jim, 78, noticed that
her hearing was not what it used to
be. “At first I joked about it with
family and friends but there comes
a time when you start to think, ‘This
is becoming a bit embarrassing’.
“I’d find myself asking people to
repeat themselves more and more.
And I’d sometimes have ‘pretend
conversations’, nodding along to
show I could hear when in reality
I was struggling to follow what was
being said. It could be very draining.
“And it could be very
embarrassing. If I was at a Windsor
Castle reception or Buckingham
Palace and I had my couple of
minutes with the Queen or another
member of the Royal Family then
the last thing I’d want to be doing
is saying ‘Pardon?’ or ‘What?’”
There are about 11 million people
in the UK who suffer from hearing
loss, which equates to around one
in six of us, and more than 40 per
cent of over-50s have some degree
of hearing loss. As with many
people it took Jennie a long time to
address the problem. “It probably
took five or six years which is awful
as you wouldn’t leave your eyesight
to deteriorate that long.”
Since hearing deteriorates
gradually many people are unaware
they have a problem until there is
significant hearing loss. Experts
predict that by 2030 adult-onset
hearing loss will be so common it
will cost the nation more than
diabetes does.
About two million Britons use
hearing aids while another four
million would benefit from their use
but don’t have them.
“I wish I’d done something about
it sooner,” admits Jennie. “But I
was probably in denial, refusing to
accept the natural signs of
age-related wear and tear. All of a
sudden I realised I was lip-reading
more than hearing.”

The former BBC royal correspondent tells
CAROL DAVIS how she finally plucked up
the courage to tackle her hearing loss
ENNIE’S husband Jim
also has hearing loss.
“It would drive our
daughter Emma mad at times and
she’d shout, ‘You’re both deaf as
posts’. It certainly caused irritation
and frustration for those around us.
“Simple things such as watching
TV with my husband became
intolerable as his hearing was worse
than mine so the volume would be
so loud I had to put earplugs in.”
Eventually Jennie had a test at
a Hidden Hearing centre and took
Jim. She now has a hearing aid
in her right ear and Jim has hearing
aids too.
“You can’t even see mine,” she
says. “The first time I wore it I went
to meet friends and it was lovely to
feel included in the conversation.
For my husband it was a complete
revelation. It’s made me feel I can
enjoy life to the fullest again.
“Hearing well is so important.
I can’t imagine, for example, the
birth of my little girl Emma and not
being able to hear that first little

cry. I can’t imagine being in the I’m
A Celebrity jungle and not enjoying
the sounds of nature all around.
“Or indeed at Buckingham Palace
for the Golden Jubilee and not
hearing Brian May twang out the
national anthem from its roof.”
Recent research has shown
that hearing loss can lead to an
increased risk of other conditions
including dementia, depression and
even diabetes and heart health as
people withdraw from social
situations, become lonely and
possibly depressed too.
Hearing loss can increase the risk
of dementia by up to five times,
although hearing aids may reduce
these risks, according to the charity
Action On Hearing Loss.
“My mother died last year,” says
Jennie. “She had advanced
dementia for many years and I’m
sure part of that acceleration was
that she was losing her hearing.”
After nearly three decades of
covering royal events Jennie was
delighted to hear of the safe arrival
of the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge’s third child Prince
Louis on St George’s Day.
“Babies are always joyous events
and after many years of reporting
on Charles and Diana and their
troubles it’s wonderful to see two
happy marriages forging ahead,
although it’s early days for Harry
and Meghan,” she says.
“Harry says the stars were
aligned for him and I really believe
they are.” Of Prince Harry and
Meghan’s wedding at Windsor
Castle she says: “There will be
100,000 people there at least so
I need to be on top of my game.
“And thank goodness I’ll be able
to hear what everyone is saying
because I’ll have my hearing aid in.”

HE summer’s almost upon
us and the weather is most
definitely perking up. This is
when we feel at our best –
and when we
want to feel at
our best. It’s the time
to eat well and
exercise, getting into
shape for the sunny
days to come. We want
to get outside for
walks, to laze on the
beach and, of course,
to do the gardening.
Yet while it’s a time to hone our
day-to-day health, it’s also a time to
look at ourselves in a more wideranging fashion. If we’re doing the
right things for now, we should also
be doing the right things for the
future. We’re all living longer and we
need to stay fitter for longer. We
need to look after our vital faculties,
especially our minds.
We also need to look
after our bodies,
whether it’s simply
keeping our weight
down or whether it’s a
step further and
keeping our
cholesterol down.
Whether it’s the
right food, or giving
our diets a helping hand with food
supplements, we should take charge.

step for both the summer and the
years ahead...

HOLESTEROL, the “silent
killer”, is something that so
many of us fight against. We
don’t see it as it attacks our
heart and we don’t feel it
until it can be too late.
There are two types of cholesterol –
HDL, “good cholesterol”, and LDL,
“bad cholesterol”.
Too much LDL can increase the
risk of a heart attack and stroke as
it builds up in the artery wall,
restricting blood flow to the heart,
brain and body.
The body does produce some
cholesterol itself but most of
what affects us comes from eating
fatty foods.
There are a number of other
factors that are involved in how it
affects us: inherited genes, diet,
lifestyle, weight, age and whether
you are male or female.
While cholesterol is a big problem
it’s one that can be sorted.
There are two ways to deal with
it, whether that be by reducing
your high cholesterol levels or
keeping them low in the first place.
Changing your diet and doing more
exercise are recommended by NHS
experts. A balanced diet low in
saturated fats is good – doctors
often advise steering clear of meat,
butter, cream, cheese, cakes and
biscuits. Fats found in oily fish, nuts
and seeds (omega-3 DHA fatty
acids) can also help.
The weather’s improving so now
is the time to help your body help
itself with anything from a simple
stroll to a gym workout, although
any exercise such as swimming,
rowing and, of course, gardening
is important.
The most commonly prescribed
drug, statins, block the enzyme
in the liver that helps to make
Yet for all their positive action,
statins can cause side effects,
notably the depletion of key
nutrients Co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10),
vitamin E and zinc, often causing
us to feel lifeless and lethargic, with
much “bad” cholesterol
can increase the risk of
heart attacks and stroke
muscle pains. This can be simply
solved with the dietary supplement
Bioglan Stat-Guard which works
alongside the statins, replenishing
the nutrients.
Stat-Guard capsules contain:
CoQ10, found in almost every
cell in the body and highly
concentrated in the energyintensive cells of the heart; vitamin
E, a natural antioxidant that
protects heart cells; zinc, which
helps process fatty acids as well as
helping vitamin E protect the heart
and maintaining overall health and
vitality including boosting the
immune system and supporting our
brain, bones, hair, skin and nails;
vitamin B1 which, by daily
supplementation, can help heart
health and energy production.
The result is a supplement
that not only helps see off any
statin side effects but which is full
of vitamins and nutrients to bolster
you and your body for everyday
life whether you are taking statins
or not.

on you – have regular checks with
your doctor to make sure your
levels are healthy.

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

IT IS often treated as a joke but for anyone
who lives in perpetual fear of having a
serious illness, health anxiety is nothing to
laugh about. The most common symptom
of this misunderstood condition (also
known as hypochondria) is excessively
worrying about your health and a study
published in the Journal of the American
Medical Association revealed that this
type of anxiety affects up to five per cent
of outpatients.
Reality TV star Kendall Jenner recently
opened up about having the condition.
“Since I was a kid I’ve always been the
worst hypochondriac,” said the 22-year-old
star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
It might be easy to dismiss but the
disorder is actually a mental health
condition which causes worry to the point
where the anxiety is debilitating. Worrying
about health becomes an illness itself.
If you think you might have health
anxiety here are some of the signs to look
out for:
¬ Being preoccupied or perhaps
becoming obsessed about being
physically ill or that you might
become ill.
¬ Worrying about your health is negatively
affecting various aspects of life: work, social
interactions, family life and relationships.
¬ Using “Dr Google” a little too much,
trying to self-diagnose illnesses or
physically examining yourself.
the TV presenter, author
and life coach, explains
how to spot whether you
have health anxiety
¬ Not believing your doctor’s
reassurances that you are actually
fine, healthy and well.
¬ Constantly talking about
your health and seeking
reassurance from family and
friends that you are OK.
¬ Sometimes the anxiety
can cause physical symptoms
such as chest pains/flutters,
feeling dizzy, dry mouth,
swerving, trembling or
a feeling of numbness.
Panic attacks can be
a physical outlet for
your worry.
¬ Interpreting any
bodily sensations
as a serious illness,
even the smallest
flutters or tiniest
ache can create
a very real fear.
¬ Avoidance of anything associated with
illness such as medical TV programmes.
¬ Feeling isolated and becoming
withdrawn and preoccupied.
¬ Avoiding activities or particular places for
fear of becoming ill, perhaps no longer doing
things you used to enjoy.
The key is to try to limit the amount of
worry, gradually easing off the fear
and anxiety of ill-health.
Find some healthy perspective
and ask yourself the question: “Do
I want to keep worrying about
the possibility of becoming ill or
do I want to get on and live my
life?” See your GP or a therapist
for help and support.

Thousands of children with special
needs are missing out on eye tests,
putting their vision and health at risk.
LAURA MILNE hears one mum’s story
HEN Abigail Spence
was seven years old her
mum Lorraine took her
for what should have
been a routine eye test
at her local hospital in
Greenwich, south-east London.
The clinic was packed and to this
day Lorraine can recall the burning
shame she was made to feel when
Abigail, who has autism and
learning difficulties, began to make
a fuss in the waiting room.
“She was in a wheelchair at the
time and I tried to explain that
because she had
autism it wasn’t her
fault and she didn’t
understand what was
going on,” Lorraine,
56, a full-time carer,
“However at
one point the
optometrist came
out and complained
about the noise she
was making and told
us we were disturbing
other patients.”
When their turn eventually
came Lorraine was bluntly told
that although her daughter was
short-sighted there was no point in
giving her glasses because she
wouldn’t wear them.
Lorraine, from Plumstead,
south-east London, reluctantly
accepted the optometrist’s decision
and the issue wasn’t raised again
until last year... when Abigail was 15.
Through the charity SeeAbility
she was given a sight test at her
special school and her family were
horrified to be told that Abigail,
who cannot speak, was so severely
shortsighted she could only see
a few inches in front of her face.
“I had absolutely no idea how
bad her eyesight was,” says
Lorraine, who has three other
children, Samuel, 21, Hannah, 18,
and 14-year-old Naomi.
“Abigail didn’t walk until she was
nine and she was always a very
timid child who was afraid to try
things out. With hindsight I now
believe it was because she couldn’t
see which must have affected her
balance and her
“If I had been given
any indication how
strong Abigail’s
prescription was
when we went to
the eye clinic I would
have challenged
that advice.”
Sadly this scenario
isn’t an uncommon
one for children with
special needs. Last
week a new report by SeeAbility
revealed that thousands of children
in England who have learning
disabilities are not being provided
with basic eye tests or the glasses
they need, despite being 28 times
more likely to have a serious sight
problem than other children.
About 100,000 children attend
special schools in England,
including the majority of children
with severe learning disabilities or
autism. The report, called Children
In Focus, found that up to half are
likely to have a problem with their
‘I had no
idea just
how bad
sight was’
vision yet alarmingly, an estimated
40,000 children have never had any
eye-care tests at all.
Experts say children with autism
are less likely to be able to tell
someone they have a problem with
their eyes.
It means thousands of youngsters
who desperately need glasses are
going without, many suffering
extremely poor vision without
anyone knowing about it, affecting
their ability to learn, play and
Others with more serious eye
conditions such as congenital
glaucoma, retinal detachment or
keratoconus, a disease which
affects the cornea, are being
deprived of sight-saving treatment.
All children in England are
entitled to have a free annual eye
test on the NHS.

disabilities are often unable to cope

in hospital clinics. SeeAbility
provides specially adjusted eye
tests that do not involve having
to read from a chart, as well as
extra-strong spectacles that
can withstand being thrown on

The charity is now calling on
NHS England to review eye care
for children and adults with
learning disabilities and introduce
adjusted eye tests in all special
schools. It says the failure to
target these high-risk children
with eye care they are able to
access is causing unnecessary
vision impairment and putting
eyesight at risk.

doctor, to make sure it isn’t
anything sinister.
If your GP is unsure of what
it is, or thinks it may be a
slow-growing cancer, then you
will be given a referral to a
dermatologist, who may want to
remove it for medical reasons.
However if your doctor thinks
it is purely a cosmetic problem
then you are unlikely to be able
to have it removed on the NHS,
unless it is causing you severe
psychological distress.
Some moles can be removed
with cryotherapy which involves
spraying the lesion with liquid
nitrogen, and some GPs offer
this service.
The mole will blister, then scab,
then fall off over the course of
about 10 days.
Afterwards you should just be
left with a red flat area which will
gradually fade and eventually
there may be no scar at all.
Other options include shaving
it off with a heated wire or
having it removed with the help
of a laser.
A reputable clinic will always
send off the tissue that has been
removed to a laboratory for
analysis. If you are unsure where
to go then visit your GP.
IS IT possible that after using
the same nasal spray for
20 years or more, it will no longer
work for me?
THERE are two main types
of nasal spray: those
containing steroids and those
containing decongestants.
Steroid sprays are generally
used to treat inflammation
inside the nose caused by allergy.
Most people only need to use
them for a few months each year,
during the spring or summer,
when the pollen count is high.
Yet some have persistent
symptoms which may be due to
an allergy to cats or dust mites,
or even inflammation triggered
by a change in temperature, and
they will need to use a steroid
spray all the year round.
It would be unusual for
a steroid spray to become
ineffective and if this seems
to be case, then you should
speak to your doctor.
Decongestant sprays work by
narrowing the blood vessels
inside the nose, but when the

effect wears off, there is often
a rebound effect, with the vessels
widening again, leading to even
worse nasal congestion. For this
reason decongestant sprays
should only ever be used for
a few days at a time, when for
example, you have a bad cold.
If you use them for longer than
this it is easy to get into the
habit of needing to use them
increasingly frequently to
counteract the rebound effect
and eventually they may not
work at all.
Speak to either your local
pharmacist or your GP if you are
unsure what type of spray you
have been using.
WHAT could be causing my
collarbone pain? It has been
hurting for weeks although I don’t
remember injuring it.
THE collarbone, or clavicle,
is just underneath the skin
and this makes it susceptible to
injury, particularly fractures.
These can occur from falling
on your shoulder or from a direct
blow, such as being hit by a
cricket ball. Pain at the shoulder
end of the collar bone can be due

to injury to the ligaments that
surround the joint and this can
occur from lifting a heavy object,
or constantly carrying a heavy
bag on your shoulder.
Pain in this area can also be
caused by arthritis in the
shoulder joint, which may be
made worse by sleeping on the
affected side.
More rarely, pain in the clavicle
can be due to an infection or
tumour in the bone.
As you have had pain for
weeks you should see your GP.
Meanwhile, try to avoid
carrying anything heavy on
the affected side.

Don’t let the cost of travel
insurance ruin your trip
When you spend years saving up for that special
trip, the last thing you want to find is that your travel
insurance is unaffordable or takes a hefty lump away
from your spending money. That’s what happened to
reader Mr Saw, 72 from Cumbria, who had been saving
for a trip to Malaysia for his 50th wedding anniversary.
Mr Saw said: “After booking the holiday, we decided
to check with SAGA, and I couldn’t believe it when they
told me that my travel insurance would cost almost
£600. After seeing advertised, I
decided to give them a call and spoke to a friendly and
helpful travel insurance team member who went through
the questions with me. I was thrilled to be told that the
policy would only cost £239, over £300 cheaper than
SAGA quoted me.”
Chris Pannell from said: “We
use several travel insurance underwriters that we work
closely with to ensure that our clients receive excellent
value for money.”

wasn’t much to smile
about in THE ROAD TO
there was an unexpected
moment as the two
presenters sat on the circular steps
of the famous Syrian monument.
All around were the ruins of an
ancient treasure, smashed to rubble
by modern-day fanatics. Their
journey to this point had been
fraught with checkpoints and the
sound of distant shelling.
The very theatre steps they sat
on had been used not long ago as
part of the Isis travelling atrocity
circus. “Maybe this is all beyond
words,” said historian Dan
Cruickshank. “Maybe we should sit
in silence for a bit.”
His colleague, war photographer
Don McCullin, almost interrupted
him. “Yes. I would welcome that.”
It was impossible to ignore the
differences between the two men,
who were old friends. Dan talked,
constantly, words tripping over
themselves in high emotion, plainly
experiencing Palmyra’s destruction
as a personal wound.
A lover and scholar of ancient
buildings, he picked up carved
lintels and fragments of pillars
from the rubble, veering between
despair at the people who could do
this and hope of some kind of
reconstruction. For him, the
brutality of Isis towards people,
cultures and buildings seemed
It wasn’t clear whether his friend,
who’d been documenting wars for
60 years, felt the same. A man of
fewer words, Don McCullin seemed
As the octogenarian clambered
up fallen walls and squatted on tin
roofs to get the perfect shot, he
kept mentioning his own frailty,
apologising for it, being angered
by it.
Who wouldn’t feel frail when
something as solid and long-lived as
Palmyra has been turned to dust?
As much as this was a film about
Palmyra, it was also about two old
friends taking a last look at a place
There will have been a time when you
have watched a badly behaved child
cause chaos somewhere and wonder
‘did nobody teach that child right from
wrong?’. But there are influences
outside the parental unit that have an
effect on our development. In this
show, a new class, including Freddie
and Xander (left), have to decide
whether it is ever OK to cheat, and
what to do when one makes a big
confession. When the dressing-up box
comes out, it’s not long before Donald
Trump makes an appearance but what
do the children think of him?

neuroscientist Professor Paul

first semi-final – this event
is becoming more and
more like a football
tournament, albeit a very
ostentatious one – from
Lisbon, Portugal, as 19

performing for one of the
coveted places in
Saturday’s final. Viewers
can vote for their favourite,

end the night with the
dreaded ‘nul points’?
We are fully invested in this drama and tonight
Hannah finds herself caught in the middle when
Nathan and Christie clash on a highly charged
divorce case involving fertility law and the ownership
of frozen embryos. Meanwhile, Ruth continues to
evade questions regarding Oscar’s return and the
concern over Defoe’s finances. Nicola Walker
(above) leads the cast.
Cornwall is the destination for the launch of this new
series as Kate Humble (above) returns to champion the
UK’s most inspirational rural entrepreneurs. Tonight’s
stars are Tim and Caro, who free-dive to pick seaweed.
After a tough few years living in caravans, they meet
Kate at their most crucial point of expansion – they are
about to move to new premises and are embarking on
cultivating their own seaweed for the first time.

Where there was once LGB, there

LGBTQIAPD. This acronym stands

Queer/questioning, Intersex,
Asexual/Aromantic, Pansexual/
Polysexual, Demisexual.
You don’t need to be an expert to
see that many of these identities
have little in common with one
another. That might have been the
thinking behind GENDERQUAKE
(C4) in which a group of people
belonging to various parts of
today’s sexual identity spectrum
share a house and get drunk a lot.
Unlike the old blokes who
obligingly provided a bit of outrage
in the pub scenes, I’m not
convinced the sexual spectrum is a
fad. As 22-year-old housemate
Saffron pointed out last night, the
path of being non-binary,
transsexual etc is so tough that no
one would do it as a hobby.
What’s new is the business of
trying to pin down the unpin-downable and turn it into an
us-versus-them situation. Things
got ugly when another member of
the group refused to talk about
having been born as a girl.
He’d had surgery to become a
man which, in his view, made him a
man, not a transsexual. It seemed
that, to some of his fellows, every
personal choice was valid and right,
except that one.
It felt like the cause of all these
healthy, attractive young folk
getting so hot and bothered was
politics rather than sex. If that’s
true, the human race is doomed.

Director Ridley Scott’s 2010 version of Robin Hood is
much darker than various other versions before it,
with Russell Crowe taking on the lead role.
Robin is returning to England, after fighting in Richard
the Lionheart’s crusading army in France, when he
encounters high-ranking Robert of Locksley, dying on
the ground. With a French invasion imminent, Robin
is talked into assuming the man’s identity in order
to protect Nottingham and its people.
However, it’s not long before his new status brings a
whole host of trouble with it and draws him into conflict
with members of the newly crowned King John’s court.

WHY is anyone surprised that
there are so may murders and
assaults in our towns and cities?
There is little or no discipline in
the home and schools are banned
from punishing unruly children
who can only be expelled and are
then driven into the arms of gangs.
Kids love to belong and if gangs
are the only place where they can
feel wanted then gangs will prosper
as we no longer have an effective
police service able to tackle them.
Then when such people are put
before a court they are given soft
sentences in cushy jails where they
will only serve half of it. No real
deterrent, is there?
Peter Hyde,
Driffield, E Yorks
I’M not a Manchester United fan
and have little interest in football
but how could anyone fail to have
been moved by the news of Sir Alex
Ferguson being suddenly struck
down by a brain haemorrhage (“Be
strong boss! Football unites for
Fergie after brain surgery”, May 7)?
The name Sir Alex Ferguson is a
national institution and as well
known as The Beatles. You don’t
have to be a football fan to realise
the impact he has made. His
achievements are legendary and it
will be a long time before we see
anyone match his performance.
Beneath the brusque exterior of
a determined manager, Sir Alex is a
kind and caring human being who
unfortunately right now truly needs
the huge number of prayers and
good wishes that are winging their
way to him. Get well soon, Sir.
Jean Norfolk,
Knottingley, W Yorks
IT is great to see the football world
united to support Sir Alex
Ferguson after it was announced
that he had emergency surgery
following a brain haemorrhage.
It is great to see that Manchester
City supporters are also praying
for Fergie, even with the rivalry
that the two teams have had over
the years.
I would like to thank the two City
supporters who held a banner with
“Football Aside Get Well Fergie” on
it at their match against
Huddersfield on Sunday. It feels
great to be part of the game of
football when I see scenes like this.
Daniel Burton,
St Leonards-on-Sea, E Sussex
THIS unfair attack on people who
continue to work past retirement
age has got to stop (“Anger at tax
on working beyond the pension
age”, May 7).
Many of us have to continue to
work to ensure we can keep a roof
over our heads and food on the
table. We have also contributed
national insurance all of our lives to
keep others and now it is our turn.
We are being asked to pay twice.
So can these bright sparks in
government get their act together
and target those who pay nothing
but receive everything and stop
picking on us?
Veronica Hall,
Potters Bar, Herts
HEALTH Secretary Jeremy Hunt is
thinking about making pensioners
pay national insurance to help fund
ONE cannot fail to be moved by the heartache felt by the
mother of Rhyhiem Barton, a young man who was killed
in a senseless gun crime last weekend (“Bloodbath on our
streets”, May 7).
Sadly this is now a common occurrence and the
prevalence of gun and knife crime is spreading from the
capital and major cities into the shires. This must stop.
We must not, like the US, become desensitised and
accepting of it as part of British life. Social and economic
reasons may have a place in explaining the increase in
violent crime but it is not an excuse.
There need to be more police on the beat and a
stronger visible presence in areas most at risk.
There also needs to be a stronger stance on those in
possession of, or convicted of, violent crime using a
weapon and their sale must be restricted and monitored.
It’s the only way to move forward and to get some
control over the situation.
Diane Silva,
Lytham, Lancs HEARTBROKEN: Rhyhiem Barton’s mum Pretana
the NHS. If the NHS is short of
money Mr Hunt’s first port of call
should be Penny Mordaunt,
Secretary of State for International
Development, and Sajid Javid, the
new Home Secretary, both of whom
appear to have lots of money to
spend on people from the rest of
the world.
Robert Evans,
I SUSPECT there are those within
the Labour Left who would be
happy with a few electoral defeats
(“Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership has
run out of steam”, May 7).
This would give them the chance
to carry out the odd purge or two
of “defeatist” and “ideologically
unsound” (anti-Corbynist)
elements within the party, purifying
it for the long struggle ahead.
“Defeat is Victory” does have an
appropriately Orwellian sound.
Peter Davey,
ONCE again the Daily Express
leads the way in campaigning for
tougher sentences to be handed
down to those wicked carers who
continue to rob the elderly of their
life savings and in most cases are
only given a soft sentence (“Cruelty
by carers should be classed as a
hate crime”, May 4).
If the Government made this
despicable act a hate crime
perhaps the judges could hand
down the sort of punishment these
odious creatures deserve.
John Hearn,
Rainham, Kent
I THOROUGHLY salute the Daily
Express for tackling this well paid
hospital chief concerning these
unfair parking charges on people
who are already suffering (“£200 bill
for my deathbed vigil”, May 5).
What exactly does University
Hospital Coventry boss Professor
Andy Hardy do in his elevated
position to earn his £205,000 a year?
What a glib answer he gave to your
reporter Giles Sheldrick.
Of course there are other ways
and means to raise money. How do
other hospital boards cope?
I salute the Daily Express’
generous gesture in covering
grieving widow Gillian Tarry’s
parking charges.
Jill Baxter,
Abergynolwyn, Gwynedd
THERE’S nothing
glamorous and exciting
about shin-deep mud
and relentless, hammering rain,
even if The Rolling Stones are
headlining (“The ultimate 2018
festival guide”, May 7).
I’ve been stuck in a corner of a
field in the middle of nowhere as
the weather closes in more times
than I care to remember.
And all of a sudden, as you’re
chilled to the marrow and your
sodden tent has been smashed to
bits by some drunken idiot falling
on it, the £200 ticket price seems
very expensive indeed.
I’d rather watch it on TV.
Eddie Parker,
I WORKED for some years as a
receptionist at an A&E
department. We had concerned
relatives of patients looking for
change for the parking machines.
On night shifts I would advise
these relatives not to pay because
the Trust would not pay a parking
attendant after hours, he was only
there from 8am to 4pm.
A senior doctor overheard me
explaining the situation to a
relative and reported me. I was
hauled over the coals by my line
manager but I refused to budge.
I had to pay to park, so did the
rest of the staff, except the highly
paid surgeons and consultants.
Gary Faulkner,
Crowborough, E Sussex
FESTIVALS are a great
way to see a load of
bands and I’ve always
found them to be such great value
for money.
Even if you don’t fancy roughing
it in a tent surrounded by noisy
teenagers shouting and screaming
their heads off until dawn, day
tickets are often around the same
price as one-off arena gigs by a
major artist.
And it’s not just the music that
draws the massive crowds at these
wonderful events.
The whole experience is so good
that you could have a great time
without even seeing a band.
James Butler,
Today is celebrated in many places as World Donkey
Day and the start of International Donkey Week. So
let’s have some donkey facts.
(%Domesticated donkeys are found around the
world; wild donkeys are seen only in North Africa.
)%In the UK, anyone wanting to keep a donkey
must apply for a horse passport.
*%Donkeys have very efficient digestion, utilising
up to 95 per cent of the energy they consume. This
makes their poo not much use as a fertiliser.
+%A donkey can eat as much as 6,000lbs of food
per year, which is why they are in such demand to
keep grasslands under control.
,%Donkeys have been known to remember places
they have been or other donkeys they met as much
as 25 years earlier.
-%A male donkey is a “jack”, a female is a “jenny”.
.%A jack and a female horse may produce a mule,
while a jenny and a male horse produce a hinny.
/%Matings between a zebra and a donkey have
also been recorded and the offspring have been
called “zebroid”, “zonkey” or “zeedonk”.
0%The large ears of a donkey help it hear another
donkey up to 60 miles away across clear desert.
('%China has more donkeys than any other
country, though they are threatened by the use of
donkey skins in traditional medicine.

Resist the temptation to splash out
on life’s little luxuries. Although you long to
pamper yourself, this isn’t a good time to
bust your bank account. Your best friend or
loving partner will take your mind off your
wants and wishes with a surprising outburst.
0905 789 3701**
0905 789 3707**
Try not to expect too much from
others. If you have a hefty workload, plan to
do it alone. You’re very good at working
through challenges, refusing to back down at
the first hurdle. The same can’t be said of a
friend or loving partner.
You’re excited to make a fresh start
but your relatives don’t share your
enthusiasm. Don’t let their gloomy attitudes
burst your bubble. Very few people have your
capacity for transformation. Remember this
next time you undergo a dramatic change.

Beware of overspending, especially
with shared resources. If you want to make a
big purchase, discuss it with a partner first.
There’s a good chance they won’t feel
comfortable with such an extravagance. It’s
time to respect their feelings.
Take care not to overindulge in food
and drink. Fuel your body with fresh
produce, whole grains and lean proteins.
Stay away from sugar, fat and alcohol. While
this may be boring for your taste buds, it’s
good for your productivity.
Develop your creative abilities even
if it means scaling back commitments. You’re
always eager to help your nearest and
dearest. At times, this undermines your own
progress. Change your priorities. Put your
happiness at the top of your to-do list.

Turning to the little man Rupert
asks what the spades are for,
but the little man does not
know, and suggests that they
follow the prisoners to find
out. Keeping out of sight they
creep after the prisoners until
they are near enough to ask.
“Oh, do go away,” gasps a
little prisoner, “or you will be
caught, too, for the Ogre is
making us dig for the good
king’s treasure.”
Says Rupert, “Where’s he made them go?
Let’s follow, so that we shall know.”

You should attend a birthday or
anniversary party. Skipping it will hurt one of
your favourite people. It’s understandable
you want to stay in your happy place for
longer. After assessing the big picture, you’ll
recommit to your responsibilities.
Don’t place too much emphasis on
what others want for you. You have a chance
to create a more rewarding home life. This
could involve leaving a toxic environment,
moving into your own place or relocating
overseas. Do what makes sense for you.

Domestic life is so comfortable and
easy you don’t want to leave. Give yourself a
push and venture out. A golden opportunity
awaits but you’ll never find it if you stay at
home. Discussing contentious subjects like
religion and culture will be illuminating.
Sometimes you have to take a
deep breath and take the unpopular route.
This isn’t usually a problem for you. This
situation is rather different, as you’re worried
about how your choice will affect a
vulnerable segment of the community.

This isn’t the best time to take a

eventually end up paying off.

You don’t know as much as you

bristle at this offer. Put your pride aside for
the sake of growth. By opening your mind,
you’ll acquire a greater level of expertise.

URGENT action is needed to boost
productivity in manufacturing,
according to a business group.
The EEF said manufacturing
productivity in the UK grew by
4.7 per cent between 2000 and 2007
but has since “flatlined” at less
than 1 per cent a year.
The manufacturers group called
on the Government to create an
Industrial Strategy Council.
Lee Hopley, chief economist at
the EEF, said: “We’ve known about
the productivity problem for some
time, with various attempts made
to try and fix it across the whole
economy. Productivity growth matters for wages and international
competitiveness, yet 10 years on
from the start of the financial crisis
these attempts have not delivered
a major shift and we need to tackle
the challenge in a different way.
“Manufacturing offers a good
area to get gains on productivity
“An Industrial Strategy Council
should now be created urgently
and put to task to identify how the
overall strategy can improve
productivity in those industrial sectors where it has lagged.”
A Business Department spokesman said: “We are committed to
growing our productivity and
improving people’s earning power.
“Our plans for the Made Smarter
Commission, a joint governmentindustry body responsible for
driving up manufacturing productivity, will be revealed in the coming
weeks. We will also shortly set out
details of the independent experts
on the Industrial Strategy Council
that will hold us to account delivering our ambitions.”

Jake Wardle has been
charged with making a
dangerous throw by the
match review panel
following last Friday’s win
over Widnes.
The 19-year-old enjoyed a
memorable debut for the
Giants, scoring two tries to
help them beat the Vikings
28-18 at the John Smith’s
But he has been charged
with a Grade D dangerous
throw on Rhys Hanbury, for
which he was sin-binned in
the 68th minute.
Elsewhere, St Helens
prop Kyle Amor and
Warrington Wolves
back-rower Sitaleki
Akauola have received
cautions for dangerous
Hull KR are reeling after
last Sunday’s 54-18
hammering at Wakefield
and the side faces a
mounting injury crisis
ahead of this weekend’s
Challenge Cup sixth-round
tie at home to Wigan.
Co-owner Rob Crossland
said: “We had 12 players
out. It will be tough.”

trophy tally of O’Sullivan.

GRAND DESIGNS: Harmon, right, has faith in McIlroy
Rory can set
up his Slam
at Sawgrass
THERE are two
remaining tilts at the
career Grand Slam this
year – Phil Mickelson
at next month’s US
Open and Jordan
Spieth at the USPGA.
Who is the likeliest to
join golf’s most
exclusive club?
Mickelson was
second at Shinnecock
Hills, where this year’s
championship will be
held, when it last
staged the US Open in
2004 but he will turn
48 on the morning of
the third round. Only
Julius Boros has won a
Major at that age.
Spieth was not even
born the last time
Bellerive hosted the
USPGA. While he can
seemingly play
anywhere, a stretched
7,600-yard, par-71
layout might be a
better fit for the long
hitters. He has actually
missed two cuts in five
attempts at
and it is a
stab in the
dark to
predict a full
set for him in
St Louis.
The view of
coach Butch
Harmon is
that Rory McIlroy will
be the first of the three
to complete the set at
next year’s Masters.
“Rory would be the
one I would pick,” said
Harmon. “Rory is a
better player than
Jordan Spieth. He has
more tools than Jordan.
That was a momentum
killer when he missed
that three or fourfooter on the second
hole of Augusta. It was
his chance to really put
the heat on Patrick
Reed, but I really like
Rory’s chances.
“I would love to see
Mickelson win a
US Open and complete
the Grand Slam, he
definitely deserves to
be in that category. But
Rory is the one I think
will complete a Grand
Slam first.”
The hangover from
McIlroy’s final-round
fade last month at
Augusta, where Reed
triumphed, continues
judging by his erratic
showing at last week’s
Wells Fargo
Championship, his first
event since. He
admitted after finishing
in a share of 16th at
Quail Hollow, one of his
favourite courses, that
it is “all a little bit of a
That hardly bodes
well for The Players
Championship this
week at Sawgrass, a
course he could not
stand when he first
played it, complaining
he felt like he was
wearing handcuffs,
and where he is yet to
crack the top five in
eight attempts.
Harmon’s view is it
actually fits McIlroy
better than
he may
think. “We
know Rory is
a great ball
striker and
especially a
great driver,
and Sawgrass
is a great golf
course which
allows the players to go
ahead and use their
length to their
advantage,” said
Harmon, coach to world
No1 Dustin Johnson.
The cream does tend
to rise to the top there.
Last year’s tournament
was a quirky anomaly
won by Si Woo Kim but
historically it has
produced a fine cast of
winners – in the
preceding decade Tiger
Woods, Jason Day,
Sergio Garcia, Henrik
Stenson and Mickelson
have all triumphed.
McIlroy has time to
kill before the 2019
Masters. If he can
chalk off the unofficial
fifth Major at Sawgrass
it may help to convince
him that Augusta is
not beyond him.

Neil Etheridge may be
on his way to the
Premier League but was
once a phone call away
from returning to the
After struggling to find a
club when let go by Fulham –
the club Cardiff pipped to
second spot with their 0-0 draw
with Reading on Sunday – he
had sold up his house
and was a week from
returning to the Asian
homeland of his mother,
Merlinda Dula.
However, he made a
decision which ultimately
led to Sunday’s unlikely
promotion, built on the back
of a group of similar rags-toriches players that he believes
Neil Warnock assembled to
tap into their “hunger”.
It is those qualities that lead
Chelsea trainee to proclaim
more established stars of the
Premier League may be in for a
few surprises next season.
“Four years ago I left Fulham
and was without a club for five
months,” he said. “I paid for
myself to train at Charlton
Athletic. I was close to the
goalkeeping coach there and I
trained as hard as I could and
just waited. It is a very hard
industry to be in and a very
hard industry to stay in.
“But by the end of the five
months, I had sold my
house and my car and
was about a week away
from going back to the
“Then I got offered a
contract with Oldham,
I think in December.
I was a London boy,
a Surrey boy. But I
said to one of my
mates, who just
happened to live
up there, ‘Do you
mind if I kip on
your couch for
however long I am
up here?’
“It was just over a
month. From then on,
Charlton took me from
the transfer window but
the whole lot made me
much stronger. I have been
able to rectify my career
and show my ability.
“I have to appreciate the
gaffer and say a massive
thank you to him for giving
me this opportunity and
sticking by me. It has
definitely been an emotional
roller-coaster for me from the
time I left Fulham. I have
a massive
for the
here for
taking me on board. He
obviously saw the potential I
had and hopefully, for the
supporters and everyone, I
have paid them back. We are
now Premier League players.”
It will be a new experience
for most of them. Of the 11 on
the pitch when their life
in the Championship
finally ended, only two
have played in the
top flight here. But
Etheridge does not
believe that will
faze any of them,
however long they
Etheridge has

a difficult
journey to
reach top
have had to wait for it. “When
you are an academy player you
definitely feel like it is never
going to end,” he recalled.
“I went from Chelsea to
Fulham – two Premier League
teams at the time – and I was
sitting on the bench for the
Europa League and Premier
League and you don’t think it
is going to finish.
“But that is part and parcel
of being a footballer. A lot of
people see the highs and some
people don’t see the lows.
“At the start of the season
the manager bought players
who were hungry and had a
point to prove. We proved that
point on Sunday.”
Owner Vincent Tan echoed
the same sentiments. “It will
be the Cardiff Way,” he said.
“We are nowhere near other
clubs and their billionaire
owners who spend so much on
players and wages.
“But if you do it sensibly and
correctly there are bargains
out there. How much did
Leicester City pay for
Jamie Vardy? A couple of
million. They got Riyad
Mahrez for £200,000. We
need to scout these type
of players ourselves and
get them in, which I’m
confident Neil will do.”
Four years ago, Tan and
fans were at loggerheads over
his decision to change from
blue to red shirts. And their
one-season stay in the top flight
was marred by rows between
ex-boss Malky Mackay and
Tan over transfer dealings.
But Tan said: “This is much
better than the first time. After
the first promotion we had a
lot of problems. But this time
everyone is pulling in the same
direction and Neil and all the
players are doing a great job.
“The club is united. I made a
mistake in changing the colour
and changed it back. This club
will become bigger, better and
RUBEN NEVES insisted yesterday
he wants to play for Wolves in the
Premier League, as speculation
mounts over his future.
The midfielder, signed from
Porto last summer for a
reported fee of £15.8 million,
has been the star performer in
Wolves’ title-winning
Championship season.
His displays and knack of
scoring spectacular goals have
reportedly brought him to the
attention of Liverpool and
Manchester United.
But during Wolves’ triumphant
bus parade yesterday, left, he
said: “I came here to help the
club and the club has helped
me. We achieved all our goals,
as an individual and as a team.
“I want to stay here and
I want to enjoy the Premier
League with this fantastic club.”
hoping he can become
Chelsea’s lucky charm in
their enthralling chase
and Champions League
football next season.
The Frenchman, who has
become something of a talisman
for Chelsea since joining the club
in a surprise £18 million deal from
rivals Arsenal in January, scored
the goal on Sunday that beat
Liverpool 1-0 at Stamford Bridge
and blew that chase wide open.
Suddenly Chelsea, eight points
off fourth place at the beginning
of April when they lost at home
to Tottenham, are only two
behind the White Hart Lane club
and three behind Liverpool, with
a game in hand over Jurgen
Klopp’s side.
The odds are still against
Chelsea, who face Huddersfield
at home tomorrow and travel to
Newcastle on the final day.
Liverpool take on Brighton at
Anfield on Sunday in their final
league fixture, a game that has
importance, while Spurs face
Leicester on Sunday.
Both Liverpool and Spurs have
a better goal difference than
Chelsea, so a win for the Reds
should be enough to retain their
top-four place, while Spurs need
four points. But Spurs have won
once in their past four in the
league and Liverpool once in six.
Giroud, right, inspired Arsenal
to late surges to claim a top-four
place on many occasions in recent
years, and he hopes his experience
can help his new club.
“I hope I can be the lucky
charm for the Champions League
race in the final sprint,” he said.
“We don’t have this situation in
our hands, but I have experience
about these kind of situations.
“We need to give everything.
I’m confident because if we play
with the kind of mentality we
showed against Liverpool, we can
have nice things.”
Tottenham in particular have
been known to wobble before
has form
top four
with the finishing line in sight,
including last year when they
stumbled with the title within
their grasp.
Giroud added: “They lost this
weekend, so it gives us a bit more
energy and hope, so that’s why
we want to fight to the end.”
The 31-year-old was set up by
Victor Moses on Sunday
and now has four goals in
five games since ousting
Alvaro Morata from the
Chelsea attack, but it
has been his sheer
enthusiasm and neversay-die attitude that
have rejuvenated the
team and made him a
favourite with fans.
“I’m very happy to help
the team. I finished a good
job off on Sunday,” he
said. “Victor Moses
and I have a good
and I know
what he is
going to
do. He
well and I just tried to put the
ball into the net.
“Sunday was very hard, with
the hot weather. We ran a lot
because we wanted to block their
holding midfielders. Everything
was not perfect and it was not my
best game on possession and
retention of the ball. We
defended a lot, but the main
thing was the three points.
“I have received a really
warm welcome at the
club from when I first
arrived. I felt like I was
at home since I came
here, like I’ve been
here a few years, so for
me to score was very
everything on the pitch
people see that, and
even more when you
have the opportunity
to be efficient and
to bring a plus

experience at making
a late surge can prove

and keep us up
By Ian Whittell
MARK Hughes has a simple
message for his struggling
Saints stars at Swansea tonight:
Don’t panic.
Southampton edged out of the
bottom three with a battling 1-1 draw at
Everton on Saturday, breathing life into
their survival hopes.
That result set up tonight’s winnertakes-all showdown in South Wales in
which victory for Hughes’s team should
be enough to guarantee safety.
And Hughes insists his players must
keep their heads to have any chance of
pulling off their escape act.
“The message is just about calmness.
You have got to deal with pressure, you
have got to think clearly,” he said.
“Obviously, when things are flying
around, you have to try to do the right
things and you have to take your
chances when you create them.
“For the most part, we did that at
Everton. We proved to ourselves that we
have that capability, we just have to
do it.”
Southampton were hard done by at
Goodison with some questionable
officiating from Jon Moss contributing
to Everton’s 96th-minute equaliser.
But Hughes insists there is no time
for his side to feel sorry for themselves.
“We just mustn’t allow
ourselves to be deflated
by what’s ahead of us and
what’s just occurred. We
played well at Everton,”
he said.
“We are not down, in
terms of confidence and
in terms how we are
playing. We were damaged
because we got so close
to getting a significant
result and a significant
would have helped our
“But it is still very much

this out of our system and go again.
“We are playing well so we shouldn’t
have any apprehension about what is
ahead of us.”

opener against Everton.

the fans expect a lot from us and we
have to give it back. The main thing is to
save the club and every single one of us
knows that.
“We don’t talk about ourselves, we talk
about the club and we just have to save
the club.
“After, everyone can make a decision
to stay or leave. This is not my problem,
my only problem is to win the last few
games and save the team.”
