LORDS TAKE
WRECKING

FURY erupted last night as
members of the Lords were
accused of “taking a wrecking
ball” to Brexit.
There were four new defeats for
the Government over vital legislation, including supporting a
move that could delay our departure from the EU.
It took to 14 the number of
times that unelected peers have
defied Brexit voters, ministers
and majority opinion in the House
of Commons to back changing
the EU (Withdrawal) Bill.
Tory MP and Brexiteer Jacob
Rees-Mogg said after yesterday’s
votes: “The peers set themselves
against the people, using an
ermine-covered wrecking ball in
their efforts to stop Brexit.” But

LIVING La Dolce Vita, this is
Meghan Markle holidaying in
Italy just a month after her
first date with Prince Harry.
Her best friend has now
published these candid
pictures of the two of them
on the girls-only trip.
Meghan, 36, flew to the
Amalfi coast in 2016 with
Jessica Mulroney, now
said to be her unofficial
wedding planner.
The pictures show them
on the beach, exploring
picturesque towns and
sipping cocktails at sunset.
The two have been pals
since meeting soon after
Meghan moved to Toronto
from the US in 2011 to star in
TV legal drama Suits.
At the time Jessica, 37,
was married to TV presenter
Ben Mulroney, son of former
Canadian prime minister
Brian Mulroney.

She introduced Meghan to
her friends including
Canada’s First Lady Sophie
Gregoire Trudeau and they
mingled at some of the city’s
most exclusive restaurants
and haunts like the private
members’ club Soho House,
run by Markus Anderson
who is a friend of Harry’s.
“Jessica helped Meghan
with her wardrobe and
introduced her to the right
people,” one of their circle
said. “Meghan adores
Jessica, not just as a
friend but also as
someone whose
taste and style are
impeccable.
Meghan looks up
to Jessica and has,
to a certain degree,
modelled herself
on her.”
The pair bonded
over a passion for
yoga, Pilates,
dogs and
9p>`cc`Xe:iXnc\p
philanthropy. They are so
close that Jessica has been
dubbed “Meghan’s girl
Friday”.
Meanwhile Meghan
describes herself as
“Aunty Meg” to Jessica’s
seven-year-old twins Brian
and John and her daughter
Ivy, four, who it is rumoured
will be among the young
attendants when Meghan
and Harry marry on
May 19 at Windsor.
The snaps are not the first
pictures Jessica has shared
of Meghan, once posting a
photo of her teaching Ivy to
tap dance with the caption
“Ladies’ Night”.
Before her marriage in
2008, Jessica had a
successful career as a
stylist, only later becoming
a wedding planner.
She first came to public
attention when she
styled Mrs Trudeau for
her husband Justin’s
inauguration in
November 2015.
Since Meghan began
dating Prince Harry in
2016 Jessica has become
a global name.
It was in her house that
the couple sought refuge
when news of their
relationship first broke.
Then last September she
was in a box with Meghan,
her mother Doria, and
Markus Anderson,
for the closing
ceremony of
the Invictus
Games.
They were
joined by
Harry, inset,
for the event’s
final 20 minutes
and he was seen
planting a kiss
on Meghan’s
cheek.

A PICTURE of Theresa May
was taken down at her old
university after students
attacked her as “a
contentious figure”.
The portrait was removed
at Oxford amid criticism over
Windrush and Brexit, with
students saying their ranks
included “many EU citizens
and de-colonial scholars”.
Former leading Tory Ann
Widdecombe called the
protesters “snowflakes”.
amendment formalises and reinforces
commitments made by the prime
minister.”
For the Government, Lord Callanan
said: “I do not believe anything would
be gained... apart from confusion and
uncertainty.”
Lord Callanan warned remaining in
the EEA “would not deliver control of
our borders or our laws”.
He said: “On borders it would
mean that we would have to continue
to accept all four freedoms of the
single market, including freedom of
movement.
“On laws, it would mean the UK having to implement new EU legislation
over which in future we will have
little influence and, of course, we will
have no vote.
“This will not deliver on the British
people’s desire as expressed in the
referendum to have more direct control over decisions that affect their
daily lives.”
A spokesman for the Department for
Exiting the EU said it was “disappointed” with the defeats.
Saying the department would consider the implications, the spokesman
stressed: “The fundamental purpose of
this Bill is to prepare our statute
book for exit day and to
provide certainty as we leave
the EU.”
After the Bill has its third
reading in the House of
Lords on Wednesday
next week, it will return
to the Commons, where
ministers will ask MPs
to reverse at least
some of the changes
that have been backed
by the peers.
Quit…Heidi Alexander
Labour MP ‘forced
to quit by hard-Left’
A SENIOR Labour MP quit
the Commons yesterday
amid claims she was forced
out by hard-Left activists in
her constituency.
Heidi Alexander stood
down to take up a new post
working for London’s Labour
mayor Sadiq Khan.
Her departure, after a
series of clashes with party
leader Jeremy Corbyn, will
trigger a by-election in the
south London constituency
of Lewisham East, where she
had a massive 21,123-vote
majority at the general
election last year.
The move followed fresh
speculation about Mr
Corbyn’s future, with one
of his closest backers,
hard-Left Momentum
founder Jon
Lansman, openly
suggesting he
could be replaced
within six
months.
Senior Tories
seized on her
resignation as
fresh
evidence of division in
Labour ranks. Party
chairman Brandon Lewis
said: “This is more proof
Labour are too divided to
deliver on their promises.
“This also highlights a
complete lack of faith in
Jeremy Corbyn and his
leadership. The remaining
moderates left within Labour
will now rightly be concerned
that they are next on
Momentum’s list.”
Former shadow health
secretary Ms Alexander, 43,
quit to become deputy mayor
for transport. She will
replace deputy mayor Val
Shawcross, who is stepping
back from full-time public life
after 18 years at the Greater
London Authority.
Earlier, in a Politico
website interview, Mr
Lansman said Momentum
had to be ready to find a
replacement for 68-year-old
Mr Corbyn.
Mr Lansman added: “He’s
incredibly fit and well today
but who knows if he will be
in six months’ time.”
THERESA May was last night
warned that the Conservative Party
will be ripped apart unless she
abandons her plan for a customs
partnership with Brussels.
Pro-Brexit MPs were furious after
officials insisted yesterday that the
blueprint branded “crazy” by Foreign
Secretary Boris Johnson was still
under consideration.
One member of the 60-strong Tory
backbench European Research
Group predicted that the party’s
simmering civil war would burst into
the open unless the Prime Minister
backed down and dropped the plan.
“This is a fight we must win
because the future direction of our
country is at stake,” the MP said.
Research Group members were
meeting in Parliament’s Jubilee
Room last night to discuss their
strategy, along with donors who
backed the Vote Leave campaign in
the run-up to the 2016 referendum.
The MP said: “The uneasy truce in
the Tory Party over Brexit is over.
The Remainers in our party are
trying to halt Brexit and they will
stop at nothing to achieve that.
“This is a debate about the future
of our country because any treaty
that is agreed between the
Government and the EU will have a
massive effect on our future
direction. We have to get this right.”
Mr Johnson arrives at No 10 yesterday
:iXqp
Mr Johnson savaged the customs
partnership idea during his visit to
Washington, saying the scheme,
which would lead to UK officials
collecting tariffs for Brussels, would
create a “whole new web of
bureaucracy”. He said: “It’s totally
untried and would make it very, very
difficult to do free trade deals. If you
have the new customs partnership,
you have a crazy system whereby you
end up collecting the tariffs on behalf
of the EU at the UK frontier.”
Senior Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg
applauded Mr Johnson, saying:
“Boris hits the nail on the head.” But
pro-Brussels Conservatives were
angry at his outburst, described as
“particularly regrettable” by former
attorney general Dominic Grieve.
Mr Grieve urged Mrs May to sack
her Foreign Secretary, telling BBC
Radio 4’s The World at One: “I don’t
think he is in any way inhibited by
normal propriety in government.”
Mr Johnson faced Mrs May at a
Cabinet meeting yesterday, but the
customs issue was not on the agenda.
Mrs May’s spokesman would not say
whether they had spoken privately,
but asked whether she continued to
have full confidence in Mr Johnson,
he said: “Yes.”
He added: “There are two customs
models put forward last August and
most recently outlined in the Prime
Minister’s Mansion House speech,
which the entire Cabinet was signed
up to. Following last week’s subcommittee meeting, it was agreed
that there are unresolved issues in
relation to both models and that
further work is needed. The Prime
Minister asked officials to take
forward that work as a priority.”
Mr Johnson and other Tory
Brexiteers want a looser “maximum
facilitation” or “max fac” customs
arrangement, which uses digital
technology to prevent smuggling
between Northern Ireland and the
Irish Republic. Their proposal was
backed by former Northern Ireland
Ex-attorney general Dominic Grieve
Backing the Brexiteers...Lord Trimble
first minister Lord Trimble, a key
figure in the Good Friday Agreement
which ended the Troubles.
The peer said hard border fears
were “only as strong as the refusal of
those who do not engage with a
workable technological solution”.
He added: “Thirty years ago we
found that where there was a will to
succeed, to build something better,
all obstacles could be overcome.”

Holy smoke! Racy
Help may soon be on way for the likes of comedian Harry Hill and Prince William
Drug for brittle
bones may bring
hope for baldies
BALDNESS could be beaten by an
experimental drug originally designed to treat brittle bone disease,
research suggests.
In laboratory experiments the
osteoporosis drug WAY-316606 had a
dramatic effect on donated follicles,
stimulating the growth of hair. It
targets a protein that acts as a
potent brake on hair growth.
The discovery, still to be
tested in clinical trials, could
open up a whole new
approach to treating hair
loss in men and women.
Lead scientist Dr Nathan
Hawkshaw, from the University of Manchester, said: “The
fact this new agent, which had
never even been considered in
a hair loss context, promotes
human hair growth is exciting
because of its potential. It could one
day make a real difference to people
who suffer from hair loss.
“Clearly though, a clinical trial is required next
to tell us whether this
drug or similar compounds are effective and safe.”
Only two drugs,
minoxidil
and
finasteride,
are
available for the
treatment of male
pattern baldness
(androgenetic alopecia) – the classic
type of receding hairline hair loss in men.
Both have moderate side
effects and often produce disappointing results. The only other option is
transplantation surgery.
Scientific detective work led the
By Giles Sheldrick
Manchester team to test the osteoporosis drug. It began with a search for
novel agents for treating male pattern
baldness. The researchers first latched
on to an old immunosuppressive
drug,
cyclosporine A (CsA), used
since the 1980s to
prevent transplant
organ
rejection
and reduce symptoms of autoimmune disease.
A well-known
side effect of CsA
is that it enhances unwanted hair
growth. The scientists
found
that
the drug reduced the
activity of a protein
called SFRP1, a key growth
regulator that affects many tissues
including hair follicles.
However, because of its side
effects CsA would be quite
unsuitable as a baldness
treatment.
The team went on to look
for another agent that targeted SFRP1 and found that
WAY-316606 was even better
at suppressing the protein.
In tests, follicles donated
by more than 40 patients
undergoing hair transplant
surgery were treated with the
osteoporosis drug for six days.
The follicles quickly became active
and began sprouting hair.
After two days, hair production
increased significantly.
The research is published in the journal Public Library of Science Biology.

May champions free press
THERESA May yesterday urged MPs
to block attempts to impose new
controls on Britain’s newspapers.
The Prime Minister said
amendments being put to knife-edge
votes in the Commons today could
“undermine our free press”.
Former Labour leader Ed Miliband
has tabled an amendment to establish
a new inquiry into the media. And
Labour deputy leader Tom Watson

Impress pay all the claimants’ bills in

if they win the case.
No major newspaper has signed up
to Impress. The Daily Express is
among over 1,500 print and 1,100
online titles overseen by the
Independent Press Standards
Organisation instead.
Mrs May told Cabinet ministers an
inquiry would be a waste of money
and that Mr Watson’s plan would be
“against natural justice” if a
newspaper found not to be at fault
could still end up having to pay costs.
Singer Rita Ora is dramatic in black, along with a veiled Madonna, inset left, and model Cara Delevingne
By Mark Reynolds
RIHANNA sparked a religious backlash
yesterday after stealing the show with a racy
Pope-themed ensemble at one of the world’s
most prestigious fashion events.
The Barbadian singer’s bejewelled Met Gala
outfit was among the most risque at the annual
New York fundraiser which this year had the
theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the
Catholic Imagination”.
As A-listers and the fashion world gathered
on Monday night, Rihanna, 30, left some guests
aghast as she strode down the red carpet.
Her heavily beaded corset mini-dress under
a full skirt, paired with a mitre-like hat, was
created by John Galliano for Belgian design
house Maison Margiela.
One critic tweeted: “Showing up with a Pope
headpiece is so offensive to me. As someone
raised in a Catholic household I think the Met
Gala 2018 is a mockery of Christian religion and
highly disrespectful on so many levels.”
Another posted: “So you can’t wear a Native
American outfit for Halloween because it’s
offensive, but Rihanna can dress like the Pope
and she gets praised. Not only is she dressed as
the Pope, her outfit sexualises it.”
Feathered
Rihanna was joined on the red carpet by her
co-chair for the evening Amal Clooney, 40, who
arrived with her husband, actor George, 57.
The human rights lawyer was decidedly more
demure in a rose-patterned skirt and trousers
by British designer Richard Quinn.
Another head-turning outfit belonged to
Katy Perry, 33, who did her best to strut while
wearing a giant pair of angel’s wings.
But the bizarre feathered accessories were
so big that the singer, who was once married to
comedian Russell Brand, was seen knocking
someone over as she walked past.
Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez arrived in
a Balmain gown emblazoned with a cross and a
feathered train, while the evening saw a vibrant
performance from Madonna, 59, who sang her
hit Like A Prayer along with Leonard Cohen’s
song Hallelujah.

Social care ‘underfunded and precarious’ MPs warn
SOCIAL care in England will be on
“its knees” without immediate
radical reform, an influential
cross-party group of MPs warn.
The sector is underfunded with
a workforce suffering from low pay,
low esteem and high turnover of
staff, leaving it in a “precarious
state”, according to the Public
Accounts Committee.
In a report today, MPs also raise
concerns over growing numbers
of pensioners and other vulnerable
people who are not getting the
help they need.
Experts say the funding gap is
CRUSADE
By Giles Sheldrick
TOUGHER sentences for hate
crime perpetrators will not
include criminals who prey on the
elderly, it emerged yesterday.
New proposals set out how
courts should deal with those
convicted of offences related to
inciting hatred against people or
groups – except those who target
pensioners, because it is not
deemed an aggravated offence.
Former Big Brother star Jayne
Connery, 50, who founded Care
Campaign For The Vulnerable, is
backing a Daily Express crusade
to force ministers to change the
law so courts can hand out stiffer
punishments to those who target
the helpless.
She said: “These offences
should be classified as hate crime.
It beggars belief the elderly are
being neglected in this way.
“When my mother was slapped
in her care home – somewhere
she should have felt safe and
protected – I felt powerless.
“It’s horrific, there is no other
word, and I know from those who
contact me that it is far more
widespread than people think.
“Deliberately being cruel, taking advantage or being physically
abusive towards people with
little or no capacity to defend
themselves should result in a jail
sentence. It’s as simple as that.”

learn wanton criminality against

set to exceed £2billion alone by
2020 to reflect inflation, wages and
demographic change.
Another £1.3billion is required
to stabilise key pressures
including improved training, pay
and conditions.
Glen Garrod, president of the
Association of Directors of Adult
Social Services, said: “We have
consistently warned that the
absence of adequate, long-term
funding for adult social care is
having very detrimental impacts.”
James Taylor, of disability charity
Scope, said: “This is yet more
evidence that our social care
system is crumbling in the face of
increasing demand and chronic
underfunding.”
The MPs’ report recognised the
Department of Health and Social
Care is “committed” to addressing
the issues facing the sector
through its workforce strategy and
forthcoming green paper on
funding of care for older adults.
But it added: “Given the
pressures on the sector, we are
concerned that the department
sees the green paper as a cure-all
and underestimates the scale of
the challenge.”
Committee chairwoman Meg
Hillier has urged the Government
to publish a long-term funding
plan for care. She said: “Adult
social care needs sustainable
funding and a stable workforce.
“The sector is scraping by and
without an explicit, long-term plan
backed by Government it could
soon be on its knees.
“Levels of unmet need are high
and rising, short-term funding
fixes are a road to nowhere and
the ingrained issues that lead to
high turnover in the workforce
could be compounded by Brexit.”
The report comes as the Nuffield
Trust think tank suggests that the
UK should look to Japan where
long-term care insurance is
universal for the over-65s and the
disabled from the age of 40.
A Department of Health and
Social Care spokeswoman said:
“We know the social care system is
under pressure – that’s why we’ve
provided an extra £2billion funding
to the sector and a further
£150million for the next year.”
‘National tragedy’ as law
fails our elderly yet again
LAST month, the Daily Express
reported on the need to make
criminals who deliberately
target elderly people guilty of
hate crimes.
Under current law,
committing crimes based on
disability, race, religion, sexual
orientation or gender identity
is an aggravated offence – and
rightly so. However, the
definition does not include
crimes where the victim has
been singled out because
of their age.
This is despite the fact that
age is listed alongside other
characteristics in the Equality
Act, which provides safeguards
in the workplace or when using
public services if you are
offences motivated by race,
sexual orientation or disability.
The Public Order Act forbids
activities intended or likely to stir
up racial hatred and those based
on hatred against people over
religion or sexual orientation.
The legislation carries a maximum sentence of seven years.
Abuse of the elderly can be
physical or sexual assault, harassment, coercion, threats and
intimidation, theft and fraud, and
neglect. But there is currently no
statutory definition of a crime
against an older person or spe-

and other forms of prejudice.
It is a glaring inconsistency
that age-related crimes are not

as other characteristics, when
crimes where the victim is
targeted because of their age
and a perception they will be
more vulnerable are a
widespread problem.

cannot seek a tougher sentence.
Ms Connery set up her care
campaign to lobby for CCTV
cameras in care homes after her
dementia-stricken mother Ellen,
80, was attacked.
She said: “She was slapped
across the face by a carer. Under
police questioning she cracked
and admitted hitting my mother.
But she was let go, that was it.
She could be working in another

PRESIDENT Trump last night withdrew the US from the “decaying and
rotten” Iran nuclear deal.
Mr Trump branded Iran as “the
leading state sponsor of terror” and
said the agreement – struck in 2015
– was built on “great fiction”.
Tehran had continued pursuing
nuclear-capable weaponry despite
it, he said.
He announced “highest level”
sanctions will now be imposed by
the US to target critical sectors of
Iran’s economy.
Iran immediately responded by
announcing it would restart uranium enrichment – a key process for
both nuclear energy and weapons
development.
Western leaders including Britain’s Theresa May expressed “regret
and concern” over the US move.
Mr Trump justified his action by
saying if he had failed to act it would
have led to a regional nuclear arms
race with rival nations all pursuing
deadly weapons by 2025.
He claimed that there was a “great
fiction at the heart of the deal” and
said that the release of intelligence
documents last week from Israel
“exposed (Iran’s) intention of pursuing nuclear weapons”.
Speaking at the White House, the
President said: “The Iran deal is
defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will
happen.
“In just a short period of time, the
world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring
the
world’s
most
dangerous
weapon.”

was supposed to see Tehran end its
nuclear weapons programme in
exchange for the lifting of sanctions.
But Mr Trump criticised the “disastrous” accord for doing nothing to
curb Iran’s ballistic missile capability or repeated interventions in wars
in Syria where it has supported
President Assad and Yemen.
He said: “In theory, the so-called
Iran deal was supposed to protect
the United States and our allies
from the lunacy of an Iranian nuclear
bomb, a weapon that will only
endanger the survival of the Iranian
regime.
“In fact, the deal allowed Iran to
continue enriching uranium, and
over time reach the brink of a nuclear
breakout.
“This was a horrible one-sided
deal that should have never, ever
been made.
“It didn’t bring calm. It didn’t
bring peace. And it never will.”
The President added: “Powerful
sanctions will go into full effect. If
the regime continues its nuclear
aspirations, it will have bigger problems than it has ever had before.”
And he warned that those who
“seek to help Iran will feel the wrath
of America”.
Trump insisted the US would continue to work with allies to “find a
lasting solution to the Iranian
nuclear threat, its ballistic missiles
and its menacing activity across the
Middle East”.
He pledged: “The people of America stand with the long suffering
people of Iran.

COMMENTARY
TIMOTHY STAFFORD
Senior Research Fellow at
The Henry Jackson Society
THE world waits with bated
breath for the Trump-Kim
summit. Yet although North
Korea is hitting headlines, Iran
may pose the bigger challenge.
In the two years since the
nuclear deal was agreed, Iran
has pursued an increasingly
expansionist form of politics.
The defeat of ISIS and Assad’s
victory in the Syrian civil war,
both achieved with Iranian
military support, has given
Tehran enormous leverage.
Crucially, it has used its
improved economic climate to
invest in ballistic missiles.
It has provided these
advanced weapons to proxies
such as Hezbollah and the
Houthi rebels in Yemen,
jeopardising the delicate balance
of power in the region.
It is also experimenting with
new platforms and innovations
that could one day bring Britain
within its missiles’ range.
That is the background to
today’s controversy over the
Joint Comprehensive Plan of
Action (JCPOA), commonly
known as the nuclear deal.
The deal gives Iran relief from
economic sanctions in exchange
for agreeing to limit its level of
uranium enrichment for years.
President Trump has long
been a critic, saying Iran should
not have been permitted to
retain any nuclear programme.
Detractors say scrapping the
agreement with Tehran will
persuade North Korea that the
US cannot be relied upon.
But for Trump, it’s all part of a
forceful message that all deals
require his approval.
Syria’s President Assad has been supported by Iran
joint statement issued by Theresa
May, German Chancellor Angela
Merkel and French President
Emmanuel Macron immediately
after the announcement expressed
their “regret” at Mr Trump’s decision and insisted Iran had abided by
restrictions set out in the deal.
They added: “The world is a safer
place as a result. Therefore we will
remain parties to the JCPoA. Our
governments remain committed to
ensuring the agreement is upheld,
and will work with all the remaining
parties to the deal to ensure this
remains the case including through
ensuring the continuing economic
benefits to the Iranian people that
are linked to the agreement.” They
urged the US not to interfere.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani
said: “The US has announced that it
doesn’t respect its commitments.
“I have ordered the Atomic Energy
Organisation to be ready to start
the enrichment of uranium at industrial levels.”
Israel on high alert amid fears of an attack by Tehran
ISRAEL opened bomb shelters
yesterday after identifying
“irregular activity” by Iranian forces
in Syria.
The military instructed civic
authorities on the Golan Heights in
the east of the country to prepare
bomb shelters, deploy new defences
and mobilise some reservist forces
amid fears of conflict between
Israeli and Iranian forces.
President Trump, announcing he
By John Ingham Defence Editor
was pulling the US out of the Iran
nuclear deal, accused Iran of
interfering in other countries such
as Syria and of supporting militias
like Hezbollah.
Israel’s top general Gadi Eizenkot
cancelled a scheduled appearance
at an annual security conference
and was conferring with Defence
Minister Avigdor Lieberman and
other national security chiefs,
officials said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu highlighted how
tensions had been growing between
the rival nations.
He said: “For months now, Iran
has been transferring lethal
weaponry to its forces in Syria, with
the purpose of striking at Israel.
“We will respond mightily to any
attack on our territory.” Iran and
Lebanon’s Hezbollah have been
helping Syrian President Bashar
al-Assad beat back a seven-year-old
rebellion. Israel has carried out
repeated air strikes against them,
hoping to stop the formation of a
Lebanese-Syrian front to its north.
An April 9 strike killed seven
Iranian military personnel at a
Syrian airbase. Iran blamed Israel
and said it would retaliate.
Israeli media said the order to
prepare bomb shelters was
unprecedented during Syria’s civil
war. Israel captured the Golan
Heights from Syria in the 1967
Middle East war and annexed it in a
move not recognised by the
international community.
Israel has apparently posted Iron
Dome short-range air defences in
the region, suggesting an attack
could be by ground-to-ground
rockets or mortars.

The brick-ture of happiness! Harry’s big day in Lego

Legoland has not only

The tiny figurines were

the royal residence was

Camilla: I know victims of abuse
THE Duchess of Cornwall yesterday
told how she was inspired by the
experiences of friends to campaign
against domestic violence.
Camilla, who has made highlighting the issue of sexual and physical
violence against women one of the
main features of her official work,
spoke during a visit to France with
her husband Prince Charles.
The Duchess visited domestic violence charity VIFFIL-SOS Femmes
in Lyon and told of her motivation.
She said: “I’d always known about
domestic abuse.
“In fact, I knew people who had
suffered from it.
“But I’d no idea of the extent or
how many people, how many women
actually around the world, are
suffering from it.”

housing for victims of domestic vio-

lence, the Lyon charity also provides

means to leave abusive partners.
Camilla, 70, praised the centre
and said: “It’s incredibly well run,
the lady who runs it is passionate
about it.
“It’s been going for a very long
time I think, long before a lot of people talked about domestic abuse.
“It’s also got the backing of the
city and the mayor, so it’s financed
by them and, talking to the ladies,
they say it’s their safe haven.
“It’s the one place they feel safe –
they can get back on their feet, back
into work and back into a normal
life again.”
Charles and Camilla also commemorated VE Day yesterday by
laying a wreath at a ceremony
in Lyon.
The royal couple were greeted by
mayor of the city Georges Kepenekian and David Kimelfeld, president
of the Lyon Metropolitan Area, when
they arrived at a monument in Parc
de la Tete d’or.
The Prince laid a wreath at the
foot of the grand monument, which
was flanked by flag bearers, to mark
73 years since the end of the Second
World War in Europe.
The couple joined hundreds of
guests, including veterans, schoolchildren and members of the public,
who were invited to attend the
ceremony. They also shook hands
with some of the veterans.
Lyon was once hailed as “the
capital of the resistance” by the Free
French leader and President Charles
de Gaulle.

CORONATION Street star Michael
Le Vell has reportedly moved out of
the house he shares with fiancee
­Louise Gibbons after a “domestic
incident”.
The actor, 53, is said to have
checked into the £70-a-night Holiday
Inn in Manchester after his arrest on
suspicion of assault last week.
Le Vell who plays mechanic Kevin
Webster in the ITV soap, has apparently left his £330,000 house in
Timperley, Cheshire, after falling
down stairs during a bust-up on
Thursday night.
Ms Gibbons, 42, is said to have
been there when he slipped as he
argued with an unknown person at
the property.
Le Vell was taken to hospital for a
check-up after a 999 call and was
later arrested but released without
charge. He has since described it as
a “silly row” that got out of hand.

Greater Manchester Police said
officers were called to reports of an

man. He was taken to hospital, then
into police custody for questioning.
“The man has since been released
with no further action.”
Le Vell appeared to be trying to
put the matter behind him as he
joined co-stars in the bank holiday
sunshine on Monday.
He donned shorts and a white
shirt to enjoy a cold drink at Media

also seen smoking near the hotel.

from 8.30 until 9pm.
The first episode was watched by
six million viewers, giving the channel
a 31 per cent share of viewing public,
peaking at 6.6 million
The second, in which Aidan, played
by Shayne Ward, was reunited with
former fiance Eva Price, played by
Catherine Tyldesley, was watched by
5.9 million viewers with a 31 per cent
share and a peak of 6.4 million.
Viewers learned that Aidan would
take his own life off screen after
Monday’s double bill.
In emotional earlier scenes, Aidan
returned the engagement ring to Eva
and the pair told each other they
loved each other and danced to their
favourite song, Cosmic Love.
Ward’s last scenes saw him sitting
in the Rovers Return as the song
played again and tears rolled down
his cheeks.
Over on BBC One later the return
of Peter Kay’s Car Share at 10pm

28.5 per cent audience share, peaking
at 4.7 million. The comedian and his

Oh do stand

The power posture of
standing with legs wide apart
looks risible when practised
by male politicians but
positively vulgar when
adopted by women. Theresa

no enhancement.

We owe them a
deep moral duty
The long-overdue decision
not to charge Afghan
interpreters who want to
bring their families to join
them is welcome but there
are still plenty of interpreters
who have never been let in at
all by our perfidious
governments.
It really is simple. These
men put their lives on the
line for our boys and the
Taliban will never let them
sleep peacefully in their beds
at night. We cannot be taken
for a ride by false claims
because each and every one
of them is recognisable by
the officers they served
under. We owe them a safe
haven and it is time we
discharged that moral duty.
Compared to the numbers
of illegal immigrants in this
country the number of
interpreters is very small.
What are we waiting for?
World’s gone mad
At the weekend I saw an old
man fall in a garden centre.
Several people rushed to
help and I turned to the
person who was with me,
saying, “Oh, here’s a former
nurse. She can help.”
To my stupefaction she
refused, later explaining that
if I had not mentioned she
was a nurse she would have
helped but that once she
was identified as having
been one then whatever
happened next became
“her responsibility”.
So a nurse can only help
as long as nobody knows
she’s a nurse. Oh, brave new
world that has such logic in it.

do not know what to make of the
row over the alleged bullying attitude of John Bercow. It is not
the John I knew when we served
together in the House of Commons
where I always found him the
soul of courtesy and quiet calm. But
then that John had not yet suffered
the strains of an erratic wife in his private life nor the consistent sniping
and criticism in his public one. Even
so, I was inclined to think the stories
were exaggerated.
The comments of Angus Sinclair – his
former private secretary – might ­possibly
have been explained by the breakdown
of the working relationship and his early
departure. David Leakey however is a
completely different cup of tea.
Leakey, who served as Black Rod, was
a junior general who had been in a tank
regiment and spent his entire career in
the army.
Whatever else, he will be used to pressure, used to bad-tempered superiors
venting their ire on him and used to
being yelled at by everyone from a sergeant major upwards. Snowflakes don’t
generally cut it in the forces.
Therefore if he complains I feel obliged
to listen. He and his ilk would be most
unlikely to be upset by the odd explosion of temper or irate dressing-down,
conduct which a lot of normally considerate bosses in high-pressure jobs
exhibit from time to time and which
most grown-ups with a sense of proportion know how to shrug off.
I have always preferred to deal with
someone with a foul temper than with
someone who insidiously undermines
while preserving a polite demeanour
and I have dealt with both types of
superior in my time.
So what is the truth? I don’t know
but I am beginning to think that John
­Bercow should honour the commitment
he made to stay only nine years as
Speaker, a period just about to expire,

Talk to us today
no doubt by people who in other circumstances are perfectly content to
bandy around the meaningless word
“diversity”.
Meaningless because what those
who prate loudest about diversity
are really about is conformity. And
Javid doesn’t conform to their
­stereotype.
It’s bad enough that he has chosen to be a Conservative. But just as
importantly, the son of a Pakistani
bus conductor who went on to
become the vice-president of a
­multinational bank by the age of 25,
refuses to be defined by his colour
or to indulge in deliberately divisive
identity politics. He leaves that to
his shabby detractors.
Yorkshire’s tour de force
Six summers ago, during
the London Olympics, I
wrote a piece in this
newspaper in praise of Yorkshire
after it was calculated that if my
home county was a country it
would have been 10th in the
medals table, ahead of the likes
of Japan and Australia.
The sense of pride that
Yorkshire people took then in the
exploits of the likes of Jessica
Ennis and the Brownlee
brothers, has never been so
evident since as it was last week
during the Tour de Yorkshire
road cycle race.
The glorious weather helped,
naturally. But what really
turned the event into an
incredible showcase for this part of the world were the
thousands of spectators who lined the entire route each day,
from terraced mill town to minster and craggy dale to busy
city centre. Then there were the strings of yellow and blue
pennants put up in every village to greet the riders, and the
thousands of yellow-painted bikes of all shapes and vintages
that have become a common sight on our roads.
We’ve heard all the “grim oop north” gags. In fact we
probably came up with most of them ourselves. But that’s
because – as was never better illustrated than last week –
we’re lucky enough to know the truth.
I’ve never been a member of
the Jeremy Clarkson fan club
(chiefly because, unlike my wife and
son, I’m not very interested in cars
and could take or leave Top Gear).
But putting him in the presenter’s
seat on the revived Who Wants To Be
A Millionaire? was a masterstroke.
Predictably, it’s a choice that has
divided opinion. I think the
contestants are adult enough to cope
with his trademark jibes. But what
many of us regard as spiky and
irreverent is “rude and offensive” to

I had a bit of fun at Sajid
Javid’s expense in this column last week when on
arriving outside the Home
Office he adopted that ludicrous
splay-legged “power stance” currently favoured by Tory ministers,
presumably at the behest of image
advisers. However the operative
word in that previous sentence is
“fun”, I hope.
Contrast that with the charming
social media posts that greeted the
new Home Secretary’s appointment
by Labour supporters, more than
one of whom branded him a “coconut”. Brown on the outside, white
inside, you see.
Nasty gutter racism, and spouted
more sensitive souls. I know it’s
different when you’re in the hot seat
and have the eyes of the nation upon
you (I rather liked Clarkson’s crack
about one contestant looking “more
nervous than Donald Trump on a
windy day”), but some of the general
knowledge on display so far certainly
merits a bit of ribbing. Your hopes for
a contestant’s progress to the big
money tend to diminish when they
agonise over which county Blackpool
Tower is in, and seriously consider
Hertfordshire as one of the options.

I use trains a lot, though fortunately I am no longer reliant on
them as a regular commuter. And despite all the cancellations,
delays and overcrowding I’ve experienced over the years, at its
best I still regard it as a wonderful, civilised way to travel. I love the
ease of booking that comes with the Trainline app too.
The rail industry has now launched a public consultation to simplify
the fares system. But what’s the betting that it will end up getting rid of
the anomaly of split tickets – which is when savvy passengers realise
it’s cheaper to buy separate tickets for the same journey if there’s a
change of station en route – while at the same time making no overall
reduction in fare prices?

Bouncing bug, spider trains for long jump
Picture: DR MOSTAFA NABAWY / SWNS
UP, up and away...
spider Kim leaps
from left to right in
time-lapse photo
taken by scientists
GIANT LEAP FOR SCIENCE
IS it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s a
female spider called Kim...and she
has been trained to jump
spectacular distances by
scientists.
At just over half an inch (15mm)
long, Kim belongs to a species
that can bound up to six times
their body length from a standing
start. Taking-off, the force on the
spider’s legs is equivalent to five
times the creature’s weight.
The best a human can achieve is
about one and a half body lengths.
By Jan Disley
AN accountant found drunk at
the wheel on the day she was
due in court over another drinkdrive charge has avoided jail.
Paulina Gancarz, 34, was
found slumped in her parked
Mini Cooper in a lay-by five
times the drink-drive limit last
month.
She was arrested and bailed
after giving a roadside breath
test reading of 182 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath – the legal limit
is 35mg.
But two weeks later – on the
day of her trial – she was found
drunk and over three times the
limit after crashing the same car
near her £300,000 apartment in
Wilmslow, Cheshire.
Stockport magistrates heard
Gancarz was still coming to
terms with a bitter divorce
while trying to “escape” her
overbearing mother.
The mother of one, who once
ran her own accountancy firm,
wept as she admitted drinkdriving and failing to provide a
specimen of breath.
But she was spared jail after
blaming it all on an acrimonious
split with her husband which
cost her £65,000 in lawyers’
By Anil Dawar
Dr Mostafa Nabawy from the
University of Manchester trained
Kim to jump on a laboratory
platform.
It may sound like preparation for
a novelty circus act but the
research has a real purpose.
The study of the range of natural
mechanics could help engineers
design mini-robots.
Dr Nabawy said: “If we can
understand these biomechanics
we can apply them to other areas
of research.”
Kim is a “regal jumping spider”,
Phidippus regius. Her jumps were
recorded using ultra-high-speed
cameras, and scientists also took
scans to create a 3D virtual model
of her legs and body structure.
Results published in Nature
Scientific Reports show that Kim
used different jumping strategies.
For short distances she
favoured a faster, lower flight
which used up more energy but
was more effective for capturing
prey. Longer distance jumps were
slower and more energy efficient.
Insects use a combination of
spring-like mechanisms, direct
muscle forces and hydraulics.
Spiders are known to use
hydraulics to extend their legs.
Study co-author Dr Bill
Crowther praised Kim’s
extraordinary performance.
He said: “Our results suggest
that Kim does not need the
additional power from hydraulics.”
Accountant at five
times drink-drive
limit avoids prison
fees, the court heard. Gancarz
claimed her Polish mother, who
was visiting the UK, had “put
pressure” on her daughter as
she disapproved of the split.
The divorce cost Gancarz her
business and meant she had to
work as an account’s assistant
on a “much lower” salary.
Gancarz said she decided to
get away by sleeping overnight
in her car with a bottle of wine
and driving home the next day.
She said she was unaware it
was an offence to be drunk at
the wheel of a parked car.
The court heard the offences
occurred between April 14 and
April 30, two years after
Gancarz broke up with her
husband.
Tina Cunnane, prosecuting,
said police found her in the
driver’s seat of her vehicle and
asked for a roadside breath test,
which she complied with.
The prosecutor said: “They
asked her to come to the station
to provide another specimen,
but she refused.”
She said the next offence
occurred shortly after crashing
her car. She added: “On that
occasion she blew a reading of
109mg in 100ml of breath.”
Gancarz’ s lawyer Karen Rolls
said: “She has been going
through a difficult time and is
finding it hard to cope.
“Over her divorce, her and her
ex-husband lost their business
and a lot of money.”
Gancarz was banned from
driving for three years and
ordered to complete a 12-month
community order.
Magistrates also ordered her
to complete 60 hours unpaid
work, complete a drink driver
awareness course and pay £170
court costs.

joanna’s underground adventures
NO NEED for expensive hire cars
to ferry Joanna Lumley
around the capital. The 72-yearold insists she’s never happier
than when whizzing around her
home city of London on the
Underground.
“I zoom around London on the
Tube and rarely get in cars,” says
the 72-year-old Absolutely
Fabulous star and south London
resident. She’s also keen to
stress that unlike so many other
celebrities who seek anonymity
by wearing dark glasses and
baseball caps in an effort to
blend in, Joanna actually
welcomes the idle chit-chat
that sometimes comes with
Tube travel.
“I’m utterly bewitched by the

Elton’s dig
at celebrity
SIR ELTON JOHN has taken aim at
today’s “celebrity culture” of people
seeking fame for its own sake –
longing for the days when it used to
come only as a by-product of
success.
“There was no celebrity culture
when I started. The word celebrity did
not exist. You were either successful
or you weren’t, now the word
celebrity is like Love Island and I
don’t know who they are. For me a
celebrity is someone who is at the
top of their game. I hate the word!”
said the 71-year-old on the George
Ezra And Friends podcast. He went
on to suggest that the two years he
spent cultivating his craft and
virtually living out of the back of a
van were the making of him. “You
have got to work for it. The years I
had in a van going up the M1 I look
back and they were the backbone and
gave me all the experience I needed.
God knows how we made enough
money to exist but the work ethic was
great so when I became successful I
knew what to do, we did about two or
three shows a day. When I arrived it
was easier as I was not afraid as I
became who I was. It’s important to
chat to and work an audience.”

boyfriend, Craig Meehan, joined
the nationwide hunt and
the pair made tearful public
appeals for help.
Shannon was later discovered at Meehan’s uncle Michael
Donovan’s flat in nearby Batley
Carr and it was found that she
had been drugged. Donovan
was also found guilty of kidnap,
sentenced to eight years and
released after four. But he was
recalled to prison in 2012 after
a bust-up in Leeds.
Matthews said she feared she
was going to die in prison.
She said: “When I was first in
jail I thought I was going to die.
I panicked. They were banging
on my cell door saying ‘Come
out here, you dirty nonce’.
Prison made me weaker.
“I don’t feel like the same
person any more. I was beaten

VOLCANO Kilauea has
destroyed nearly 40
homes and forced the
evacuation of 2,000
people in Hawaii fleeing
further eruptions of
deadly lava.
New cracks have
opened from which lava
spurted in 230ft
fountains.
One expert said: “We
don’t have a good idea
of how big it is and how
long it’ll last. It could be
a couple of days, a
couple of weeks. It could
be a couple of months.”
The paradise island
had been hit by the most
powerful earthquake
since 1975 on Friday – a
6.9 magnitude tremor.
Some residents of the
affected area on Big
Island were allowed
home to rescue pets but
authorities said it was
not safe to stay.
However, many
residents are staying
while monitoring the
eruptions’ progress.
Kilauea has been in
constant eruption for 35
years but recently the
floor of the crater at the
top collapsed sending
lava back underground
causing earthquakes.

‘Star’ of Grant’s Notting Hill a snip at £13m
A MANSION backing on to a private
garden made famous by the Hugh
Grant movie Notting Hill is up for
sale for £13.2million – complete with
its own cinema.
The six-storey home has access to
Rosmead Garden, which Will
Thacker and Anna Scott, the
characters played by Grant and Julia
Roberts, sneaked into at night in the
1999 romantic comedy.
The rebuilt house in the posh West
London suburb has five bedrooms,
walk-in wardrobes, an open kitchen
and dining room, double reception
room, study and wine cellar.
The huge fitted master bedroom
takes up the whole first floor.
Rosmead Garden is part of the
Ladbroke Estate, created in the
mid-19th century when James Weller
Ladbroke developed what was then
farmland on the capital’s fringes.

Lord Sugar called it a “tired old
boat” when he snapped it up three
years ago for £7million.
But after a total refit that included
six luxury double cabins, a Jacuzzi
and on-deck entertaining area, TV’s
The Apprentice boss, who has a
£1.25billion fortune according to
the Sunday Times Rich List, has
put it up for sale at £12.6million.
The 181ft superyacht, named
Lady A after Ann, 70-year-old
Lord Sugar’s wife of 40 years, is
pictured moored in the sunshine
near London’s Tower Bridge.
It was built in 1986 and sold by
its first owner, Australian
tycoon Alan Bond, when
he went bankrupt.

Dad jailed for murder he
tried to blame on his son
By Chris Riches
A KILLER dad who blamed a
fatal shooting on his innocent
14-year-old son was jailed for life
yesterday.
Matthew Moseley, 50, shot Lee
Holt, 32, on his doorstep before
handing son Thomas the shotgun
and ordering him to take the
blame.
He then told his son: “Tell them
you’ve done it because you can’t
get done for it.”
Thomas initially admitted the
murder in October but later
revealed all to police, a court
heard.
Yesterday, his father was jailed
for life, with a minimum of 26
years, after a three-week trial in
which tree surgeon Moseley was
convicted as the real gunman.
Preston Crown Court heard
father-of-two Mr Holt had gone
to confront Moseley at his home
in Accrington over a dispute
between the men’s children.
The row had been escalated by
Matthew Moseley handed son gun
Lee Holt, 32, was shot on doorstep
texts on the night of the murder,
the court heard.
A drunk Mr Holt started hurling abuse outside the house, the
jury was told.
Moments later, Moseley blasted
Mr Holt with a 12-gauge Beretta
shotgun, one of 24 firearms the
gun enthusiast stored in his
house. The killer then passed the
weapon to his son, then rang his
brother to say: “Tom has shot
someone, you’d better get here
quickly.”
Moseley claimed the shooting
was “a freak accident” and claimed
his son had been holding the gun.
But, in covert police van recordings, Moseley was heard whispering to his son: “Self-defence for
you. Me, different ball game. I
need to protect your mum and
the little ones.”
During the trial, Moseley
watched his weeping son break
down giving evidence. The youngster said: “He’s my dad, I love
him to bits, but you’d think
he’d take responsibility for his
own actions.”
Mr Justice Bryan told Moseley:
“There was no possible justification for your actions, but matters
did not stop there.
“Far from unloading the gun
and providing first aid to your
victim, you passed the shotgun to
your 14-year-old son, Thomas.
“From that moment on, you
falsely sought to blame your son
for the shooting.
“How any father could do that
to their son is difficult enough to
comprehend but what is truly
incomprehensible is the cynical
way in which you sought to manipulate and pressurise your son
into accepting responsibility for
the shooting.”

AS Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big
day fast approaches, the makers of
Channel 4 royal comedy The Windsors
imagine a more outrageous sequence
of events.
Discussing the upcoming episode
Richard Goulding, who plays Harry, tells
TV Times: “Meghan decides that Harry
should have the stag do in America so
that he doesn’t go mental with his mates
but he finds another way. They start in a
health spa drinking smoothies but he ends
up in Vegas with [alcohol shots]
Jagerbombs and strippers and winds up
in prison.”
Thankfully, the real Harry’s hellraising
days in Vegas – where he once played “strip
billiards” – appear a thing of the past!
WHILE happily married to husband number
five Percy Gibson for 16 years, Dame Joan
Collins, pictured, is well
qualified to address the
hazards of matrimony.
“People get married on
the crest of lust,” she says.
“Once that’s gone they look
and think: ‘What the hell?
Who is this person?’”
On the dangers of
extra-marital affairs Dame
Joan adds: “There has to be
something else to fall back on. If there isn’t,
they start looking.”
MORE than 30 years after England were
eliminated from football’s 1986 World
Cup courtesy of Diego Maradona’s
scandalous “hand of God”, the team’s
goalkeeper on that infamous day remains
unforgiving.
Former England keeper Peter Shilton
– (who conceded the goal when the
Argentinian illegally punched the ball into
the net) – is unimpressed by a new,
much-publicised mural to his old foe in
Buenos Aires.
“Shame he couldn’t use this godly status
to encourage football to unite the world
rather than bringing politics into the game
for his own self benefit,” Shilton responds,
bitterly adding: “Great role model… I don’t
think so!”
TURNING 75 today, Liberal Democrat
leader Sir Vince Cable takes issue with
suggestions that he is too long in the tooth

“Gladstone became prime minister when he
was over 80, didn’t he? I think Churchill was
over 70,” he has pointed out.
Currently boasting just 12 MPs in
Parliament, even the most wildly optimistic
Lib Dem supporter would struggle to suggest
Sir Vince is heading for 10 Downing Street.
MARK Williams’ triumph at snooker’s
world championship at the age of 43 makes
him the oldest winner since fellow
Welshman Ray Reardon,
who was 45 when
victorious in 1978.
With his jet black hair
and sharp-looking teeth
Reardon, pictured – who
won the world title six
times – enjoyed being
nicknamed Dracula after
his sponsors insisted on
him wearing a black
cloak. Now 85, Reardon has said of his
vampire alter-ego: “I loved it. It was
very important to me and all done in
good taste.”
MOVIE veteran Al Pacino, 78, confesses he
has little recollection of his early years of
fame due to drink and drugs at the time.
The now teetotal actor, who became a
global star after starring in 1972 mafia classic
The Godfather, explains: “In the 1970s I felt as
though I was shot out of a cannon because
I became very famous in a matter of minutes.
I was a bit of a wild guy and I was living a life
in this kind of explosion so my memory of
it… I was in different states at different times.”

11-year feud erupts as ‘bully’
posts topless photo of rival
A FEUD between two women which
began in their school playground 11
years ago finally ended in court –
over a topless photo.
Former school bully Chanelle
Leadbeater uploaded the raunchy
snap of her rival to Facebook in a
bid to embarrass her.
The other woman, who cannot be
named, was “horrified and humiliated” after the sexy personal image
became public.
She told police it was intended
solely for her partner but 144
people “liked” it on the social media
site. And when she demanded its
By Paul Jeeves
removal Leadbeater challenged her
to a fight and vandalised her car.
The feud between the women,
both 24 and from Middlesbrough,
had started as a playground
spat when they were 13, Teesside
Magistrates court was told.
Leadbeater, who now works as a
carer, was expelled from school for
fighting.
Joanne Hesse, prosecuting, said:
“There is a long history of bad
feeling between the two.
“The complainant had blocked
the defendant and her family
on Facebook because of ongoing
problems.”
On April 3 the victim was told by
a friend that Leadbeater had posted
a photo of her showing her breasts.
The court heard that when the
woman sent messages asking
for the picture to be taken down,
Leadbeater raced to her house and
banged on the windows telling her
to come out and fight.
She was then seen attacking the
woman’s car, breaking the windscreen, a mirror and the wipers.
Neil Douglas, defending, told the
court that after posting the photo
Leadbeater “came to her senses”
and removed it. He said it had been
“in circulation among people she
mixed with”.
And he added: “She knows she
has to understand she is not in the
playground any more and fights
can’t be settled physically.”
However, District Judge Helen
Cousins said: “She doesn’t look
ashamed, I have to say.”
Leadbeater pleaded guilty to disclosing a private sexual photograph
with intent to cause distress and
causing criminal damage.
The judge told her the offences
were very serious, adding: “I don’t
think I could be criticised for
sending you to prison.”
But instead Leadbeater, who had
no previous convictions, was given
a 12-month community order and
120 hours of unpaid work.
She was also told to pay £300
compensation and £85 costs.
And a restraining order was
made banning her from contacting
the victim or referring to her on
social media for three years.
The judge warned her that any
breaches would result in jail.

Key to long life? A daily 30-SECOND
Guinness says Olive, 100 CHALLENGE
THE secret of a long life is a glass of Guinness a day,
says a woman who has just turned 100.
Olive Netting, born on May 4, 1918, in Plymouth,
should know. She has been drinking a glass of “the
black stuff” as the Irish stout is known, every day
since the Second World War ended.
For her 85th birthday, Olive’s son surprised her
with a trip to Dublin to visit the Guinness brewery.
This year the firm sent the widow a personalised
gift basket with a card, packets of Guinness-flavoured
crisps and bottles of her favourite tipple.
Granddaughter Tammy Netting, 37, said Olive, who
held a Guinness-themed birthday party to show off
her telegram from the Queen, believes she has lived
so long “because of the iron intake” in the drink.

Undercover forces needed
to target sick drug barons
EVERYBODY knows that these
crimes are all drug related, you
don’t have to be a Government
minister or a policeman to see that
(“Law of the gun”, May 8).
So what is required is to create a
really worthwhile, hard-hitting
SAS-type force, undercover if
necessary, to beat these drug
barons at their own game.
With our new Home Secretary
Sajid Javid standing in his striking
pose, he should vow to put real fear
into anyone proposing a threat to
our society.
It is no good the authorities
saying we can’t afford another
policing unit, when they willingly
set up ridiculous quangos for far
less important issues. We simply
cannot afford not to do it.
Bob Jarvis,
Billericay, Essex
If you want to carry guns
and knives join the Army
THERE is no discipline or
deterrent at all for bad behaviour,
Peter Hyde (Letters, May 8) is
right.
I blame the Thatcher
government for closing all the
youth clubs and centres and all the
do-gooders who stopped us
parents from chastising our
children, teaching them right from
wrong and to respect their elders
while growing up.
I have always said, if the teens of
today want to carry guns and
knives and go killing others, there
is a place for that, the Army.
Bring back call-up when they
reach 18, but for the younger
generation, send them to borstal or
boot camp. Let’s face it, even the
death penalty has been abolished.
Frederick Diston,
Romford, Essex
Stop all the dithering, it’s
time to take tough action
HOW much longer has the handwringing over the use of these
weapons got to go on before the
issue is dealt with once and for all?
The majority of these crimes are
committed by the drug gangs and
the drug users.
It is time to toughen up and
bring back the death penalty for
anyone caught possessing or using
drugs, knives and guns.
The bleeding hearts will be
totally opposed to positive action
but it is essential to spare our
future generations from the sick
dealers, pushers and their violence.
It is for the Government and the
police to deal with it now. Please,
no pussyfooting around, be tough.
Colin Chester,
Emsworth, Hants
Hands off pensioners and
their hard-earned cash
JUST who do the Resolution
Foundation’s Intergenerational
Commission think they are
(“Elderly care costs ‘should be
capped at £50k’ ”, May 8)?
The reason pensioners have
some money is we worked for it,
not refusing unpleasant jobs but
taking any job available (I worked
in sewage treatment for a while)
and then working hard to improve
our prospects for better jobs.
And now this commission wants
to rob us of our hard-won and often
inadequate savings to give £10,000
handouts to pampered, feckless
lazy youths while immigrant labour
does all the work.
I hope the Prime Minister can
assure pensioners that this
commission does not receive one
single penny of taxpayers’ money.

Letter of the day
Tories are hitting
the self-destruct
button once more
101 years old and still
rapping rapaciously ...
W
AS a lifelong Tory in my 70th year I find it difficult to
understand why, when Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party
cannot destroy us, we yet again do our damnedest to
destroy ourselves (“Tory civil war over customs union
‘will spell the end of May’ ”, May 8).
I would have thought even the most entrenched leader
or the most disaffected Tory MP would see that there is
one aim and one enemy. The aim, is to simply deliver
what the electorate demanded, not a watered-down
version that placates the consciences of individuals.
This means not behaving in a dysfunctional manner
and undermining the party. It means they must all have
the mettle to do what is required, whatever their personal
opinion. It means committing to their promises.
The enemy is Labour, a party that would drive the
country to its knees and leave generations of debt and
despair behind them. Theresa May does not need to
make Labour’s job easier.
Geoff Fawcett,
Workington, Cumbria MAY: Prime Minister must not let Labour benefit
Elderly paid their dues so
deserve far more respect
Stars ought to take some
pride in their appearance
I HAVE no issues with young
people being helped to progress
socially and upwardly but do the
idiot politicians never learn?
Pensioners have more than paid
their dues throughout a lifetime,
many of them serving the nation in
public service and military action.
To treat them in such a
disrespectful manner in their later
years would be obscene.
Let’s remind those disrespectful
politicians that it was threats to
pensioners’ benefits and social care
that contributed to the Tory
Government losing its comfortable
majority at the last election.
Too much of everyone’s tax goes
into the coffers of the EU. Stop
paying that and we can all benefit.

Lily’s not the only one to
make bold refugee pledge
LILY Allen is not on her own in
making pledges and offering to
take in refugees and then failing to
do so (“Sorry... Lily has no space for
refugees”, May 7).
I remember Yvette Cooper,
Nicola Sturgeon and Sir Bob
Geldof all making the same
statement.
Maybe we should also be asking
these people if they have done so
and if not, why they haven’t
delivered.
Tom O’Leary,
Leeds
Judge should have handed
out jail term for attack
WHAT a sad reflection on our
justice system when a judge thinks
a violent attack on a pensioner
doesn’t necessarily warrant a
prison sentence, but turning a back
on him does (“Judge locks up bully
after she turns her back on him in
court”, May 8).
How on earth did he think that
his duty to safeguard the public
was served by initially considering
‘sentencing’ this violent serial
offender, who had already assaulted
a police officer, to live at home with
her mum?

He has cut across barriers of race

disaffected youngsters to the
Archbishop of Canterbury.
The power that comes with such
a position is immense but Stormzy
has a chance to unite the country

Ten things you never knew about... Channel IslandsWILLIAM HARTSTON
May 9 is celebrated as Liberation Day in the Channel
Islands, marking the end of their occupation by Nazi
Germany on that day in 1945.
1. The islands had been deemed not defendable by
the British in 1940. Some civilians were given the
chance to evacuate to England but around 66,000
residents and some civil servants stayed.
2. Jersey and Guernsey are Crown Dependencies
and are not part of the United Kingdom or EU...
3. ...but they are within the EU Customs Union.
4. Until the 13th century, the Channel Islands were
part of the Duchy of Normandy which was then
under English rule.
5. Guernsey (including Alderney, Sark and some
uninhabited islets) and Jersey (including other
islets) are Bailiwicks, technically run by a bailiff.
6. The word ‘jersey’ for a pullover, comes from
Jersey worsted, the knitted wool of Jersey cows.
7. Jersey and Guernsey both have teams in the
Commonwealth Games despite not being full
members of the Commonwealth.
8. Colin Mallett of Jersey won gold for full-bore
shooting at the 1990 Commonwealth Games.
9. It is illegal for men to knit during the day in
summer months in the Channel Islands.
10. This was a 17th century law to stop fishermen
neglecting their duties and knitting instead.
ITH all the politicking going
on these days, I cannot resist
the temptation to produce
another piece of Edgar Allan
Poetry, so here goes with my latest
parody of The Raven.
Once upon a mid-term dreary, while I
pondered, weak and bleary
Over many a quaint and curious tome
of European law,
While I nodded, nearly napping,
suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping
on my office door.
“It’s some journalist,” I muttered,
“tapping on my office door,
Only that and nothing more.”
Ah distinctly I recall it, tapping feebly,
soft and small, it
Almost begged me then to stall it,
knocking there upon my door.
Should I face it, hit it, maul it? Or with
siren’s voice enthral it,
Should I silently stonewall it, as it
rapped upon my door?
“Go away, it’s late,” I shouted, “e’er
you fall asleep and snore,
That’s a sound which I abhor.”
But the sound grew more insistent,
never, as I’d hoped, more distant,
More persistent, more consistent,
stronger, louder, more and more.
Through my mind raced theories
various: all unpleasant, all nefarious,
All my enemies gregarious, now were
rapping on my door,
Conflict made my job precarious, even
more than ‘twas before,
This undiplomatic corps.
Who could be these wretched rappers,
going for it like the clappers,
Like a troupe of dapper flappers
playing tap-dance on my door?
Beating on its very timbers, like
percussionists’ marimbas,
Joyful they, like Disney Simbas, plot
my downfall with a roar.
Rebels with a lion’s roar.
Gone my hopes of restful slumber as
the rappers grew in number,
As I sought to disencumber all my
thoughts from rage galore,
Customs Union, Single Market, Europe
keeps me in the dark, it
Leaves me now with options stark, it
draws red lines I can’t ignore.
Windrush people, Irish border, out of
order, what a chore!
Worse than ever heretofore.
Macron, Barnier and Putin cannot wait
to put the boot in,
All my dreams and hopes confutin’, in a
manner I deplore.
Can’t they see my situation, in this
disunited nation,
Cabinet disintegration, Tory party civil
war?
My best plans have been rejected, lie
neglected on the floor.
Wiped out like a dinosaur.
How can I survive this fighting?
Snarling, scratching, carping, biting?
Is it time for memoir writing, take
retirement, chew the cud?
Take up something less exciting, seek
high ground, escape the flood.
Somesuch action seems inviting, flee
before I’m drained of blood.
No! I’ll prove I’m not a dud: I can
clamber through this mud.
Throw the rap pack Amber Rudd.

HE eloped with Gavin and
they were married in America in late April 1955. Justin
was born in January 1956. Justin
met Sir Anthony as a boy but
believed him to be a former work
colleague of his mother. The dashing Sir Anthony was a decorated
RAF pilot who joined the Foreign
Office after the war and was seconded to work for Churchill until
the former PM’s death in 1965.
Justin has described his early
childhood as “messy” because both
his parents were alcoholics and
they divorced when he was three.
Justin was placed in Gavin’s
custody. His father had an eye for
the ladies and began a relationship with the 23-year-old actress
Vanessa Redgrave. Gavin was now
50 but claimed to be younger. “I
have something very special to tell
you,” Miss Redgrave wrote to her
father, Sir Michael Redgrave: “I am
going to marry a sweet, darling
man called Gavin Welby.”
Her father did not approve and
her mother wrote to him: “Vanessa
is completely infatuated. I only pray
we can prevent marriage.” They
feared Welby was a “rotten piece of
work”. Not surprisingly perhaps,
the marriage didn’t happen.
Despite his drink issues Gavin
AN ARCHBISHOP WHO
DEFIES CONVENTION
Pictures: GARETH FULLER / PA, TOPFOTO, GETTY
OU could be excused for
thinking that an Archbishop of Canterbury who
is about to conduct a royal
wedding would be seeking
inspiration from the Book
of Psalms. But the fact that the
Most Reverend Justin Welby’s
source of strength is a song by the
rapper Stormzy with the line “I
stay prayed up then I get the job
done” should come as no surprise.
Because Welby’s background
makes him one of the most unusual
primates the Church of England
has known. For a start, the man
Welby believed to be his father –
who came from a German Jewish
family, made a fortune in America
selling bootleg whisky during the
Prohibition era and died an alcoholic in London years later – turned
out not to be his father at all.
Welby’s real father was a private
secretary to Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Welby’s mother was
Churchill’s personal secretary and
she was pregnant when she married the man Welby grew up calling
dad. Not the most conventional
family for the highest-ranking clergyman in England who will officiate
at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding but one that makes
for colourful reading.
The intrigue starts in England four years before the outbreak of the First World War
when Welby’s “father” was
born Gavin Weiler in Ruislip,
west London. Gavin’s own
father had emigrated to Britain from Germany years earlier
but because of anti-German
sentiment changed the family
name to Welby in 1914.
Gavin was a chancer who
went to America aged 19 where
he sold illegal alcohol to highclass Manhattan hotels. He
claimed he was connected to the
Lincolnshire aristocrat Sir Charles
Welby and led people to believe his
family owned a Scottish distillery.
These lies helped him befriend
John F Kennedy, even dating the
future president’s sister.
Gavin had a secret first wife of
whom he never spoke and when he
returned to Britain and unsuccessfully stood for Parliament as a Tory
in 1951 he was sued for libel by his
opponent, Richard Crossman, for
misquoting him as saying “Labour
is not fit to govern the country”.
After the election he met the
archbishop’s mother, Jane Portal,
who later became pregnant by Sir
Anthony Montague-Brown while
working in the prime minister’s
private office.

TIES: With his presumed fathe
r Gavin
LOYAL: Churchill with Sir Anthony
NUPTIALS: Prince Harry and Meghan
The priest who will marry Prince Harry
and Meghan Markle is the illegitimate son
of Churchill’s last private secretary – and
a fan of the grime artist Stormzy…
built up a respectable persona and
his business expertise enabled him
to pay for Justin to go to Eton and
then Cambridge. At Eton Justin
says he “vaguely assumed there
was a God. But I didn’t believe. I
wasn’t interested at all”. It was at
Cambridge that he became a Christian, urging a friend: “Please don’t
tell anyone about this.”
After graduating he spent 11
years in the oil business during
which time he joined the “happyclappy” Holy Trinity church in
Brompton, west London. He
wanted to become a vicar but the
Bishop of Kensington turned him
down for ordination saying: “You
know, I’ve interviewed more than
1,000 candidates for ordination and
you don’t come in the top 1,000. I
can tell you, you have no future in
the Church of England.”
Undeterred, Welby went on to
become not just a priest but the
Bishop of Durham in 2011, saying:
“I was astonished to be offered
the role.” Within a year he became
favourite
to
succeed
Rowan
Williams as the next Archbishop of
Canterbury, with so much money
being put on him that the bookies
suspended betting.
Welby said he had regarded it as
“a joke” and “perfectly absurd” for
him to become archbishop because
he’d only been a bishop for a short
time. But it was confirmed.
Welby and his wife Caroline have
had six children. In 1983 their
daughter Johanna died in a car
crash in France aged seven months.
Welby said: “It was a very dark time
for my wife and myself but in a
strange way it actually brought us
closer to God.”
He acknowledges his privileged
education and upbringing and has
been praised for sending his own
children to local state schools.
Two years ago a journalist did
extensive research on the Welby
family and told the archbishop he
had doubts about who his real
father was. Welby agreed to undertake paternity tests which showed
it was 99.9 per cent certain Sir
Anthony was his father, not Gavin.
Welby admitted it had come as “a
complete surprise”, adding: “I know
that I find who I am in Jesus Christ,
not in genetics, and my identity in
him never changes.”
His mother, who married again
and is now Lady Williams of Elvel,
confirmed to her son that she had
a liaison with Sir Anthony shortly
before she married Gavin although
she had never suspected there was
a doubt about Justin’s paternity.
The discovery forced Lambeth
Palace to check canon law as men
born illegitimately were for centuries barred from becoming archbishops. But a little-known change
in the law meant that Justin was
safe in his post.
A
SKED about his religious
practices, Welby calls himself “a spiritual magpie”
and claims that he can “speak in
tongues”, saying: “It’s just a routine
part of spiritual discipline. You
choose to speak and you speak a
language that you don’t know. It
just comes.”
Not all clergymen are taken by
his evangelical fervour, however. “It
can be embarrassing when an archbishop tries to get down with the
kids but to Justin’s credit he speaks
very openly and accessibly, showing that he’s not in an ivory tower,”
said one. “That can only be good.”
As the countdown to the royal
wedding gains momentum, the
archbishop admits he’s feeling
nervous: “I’ve made a couple of
cack-handed mistakes over the
last couple of weddings I’ve been
involved in and I’m thinking this is
probably not a good moment to
make it a hat-trick.”

Shedloads of pickings
for opportunist thieves
PEOPLE are out in their gardens
again, but take care because
thieves are also enjoying the
sunshine.
Britons have more valuables in
their garden and shed than they
realise, leaving them vulnerable
to light-fingered villains.
The average garden shed
contains tools and equipment
worth £550, yet a third of owners
admit to leaving theirs unlocked,
according to research from M&S
Home Insurance Premier.
Bushes, trees and shrubs can
be worth more than you think,
with the average garden
containing £369 worth of plants.
Olive trees, box balls, bay leaf
trees and hanging baskets are
regular targets.
Paul Stokes, head of products
at M&S Bank, said people often
invest significant time and
money in their garden: “Half of
Property prices
crash £7,000 as
economy slows
The average house price plunged
almost £7,000 last month, as the
slowing economy sent property
market confidence plummeting
to a five-year low.
Prices fell by 3.1 per cent in
April, with mortgage approvals
and completed sales both falling
as buyers desert the market.
The average house price fell
from £227,871 in March to
£220,962, a drop of £6,909,
although prices are still 2.2 per
cent higher than a year ago.
This follows years of doubledigit growth as rock-bottom rates
encouraged borrowers to take on
more debt to climb the property
ladder, many of whom could be
exposed if prices drop further.
Halifax managing director
Russell Galley said demand has
softened despite the continuing
shortage in supply of homes for
sale and new instructions.
However, unemployment is at a
40-year low of 4.3 per cent while
wages grew 2.8 per cent in the
three months to February, outstripping inflation for the first
time in a year, and Galley said a
crash is therefore unlikely: “This
should help to ease the pressure
on household finances.”
Slump
Sam Mitchell, CEO of online
estate agents HouseSimple.com,
blamed the slump on a weak
economy and lack of consumer
confidence: “The market is listless
and needs a spark, but it is hard
to see where it will come from.”
First-time buyer demand is
By Harvey Jones
also fading, despite Chancellor
Philip Hammond’s move to abolish stamp duty for first-time
buyers on properties under
£300,000 last November.
“Because of the lack of stock
and cheap money still available,
the market will not collapse, but
2018 is shaping up to be fairly
uneventful,” Mitchell said.
Lucy Pendleton, co-founder
and director of independent
estate agents James Pendleton,
said the £7,000 price drop in a
single month shows the market is
starved of life as consumers
tighten purse strings: “Sales are
at a two-year low and the number
of new instructions has fallen for
the 25th month in a row.”
She welcomed falling London
house prices, which should help
some get on the housing ladder,
but said: “What we have is a
stand-off with dwindling
numbers of buyers and sellers
being able to agree a fair price.”
OVERPRICED
Garrington Property Finders
managing director Jonathan
Hopper said vendors are
having to drop unrealistic expectations and cut prices to secure
a sale: “Despite the shortage
most buyers will not hesitate to
walk away from a property they
feel is overpriced. Homes now
coming onto the market are much
more sensibly priced.”
Jonathan Samuels, chief executive of property lender Octane
Capital, said the market is a mirror of our ailing economy. “It is
lacking any real momentum and
simply idling along.”
GDP growth slowed to just 0.1
per cent in the first quarter and
many households are reluctant to
overload on debt amid Brexit
uncertainty and fears of rising
interest rates. “Low stock levels
and continued cheap borrowing
rates are acting as a floor under
prices,” Samuels said.
CHEAP MONEY
The Bank of England’s monetary
policy committee (MPC) meets
tomorrow to set interest rates,
but expectations of a hike to 0.75
per cent have collapsed amid
disappointing economic data.
North London estate agent Jeremy Leaf said if the bank holds
rates this should boost buyer
interest and revive today’s sluggish market: “Those looking to
climb onto the ladder should take
advantage of competitive deals
and realistic prices, and be ready
to negotiate.”
Mark Harris, chief executive of
mortgage broker SPF Private
Clients, said mortgage rates
have increased slightly in recent
weeks, but that may now slow:
“Home loans are still reasonably
priced as lenders compete for
business in a fairly subdued
market.”
Mike Scott, chief property
analyst at fixed-fee estate agent
Yopa, said that if the slowdown
continues 2018 will be the
market’s quietest in five years.

homeowners do not know
whether they have adequate
cover for theft or damage and
should check what is included in
their policy details.”
Stokes recommended fixing a
good quality lock or padlock on
the door of your shed, and fitting
a blind over the windows to keep
contents hidden from view.
Lock up belongings such as
barbecues, bicycles and garden
tools in your shed overnight, he
urged: “Items left in the garden
may not be covered for theft
under the terms of your
insurance policy.”
Installing automatic security
lighting in your garden or
planting a prickly hedge can help
deter intruders, he added.
Sadly, household insurance
cannot protect you against
damage inflicted by that other
unwelcome intruder: slugs.

Bad habits can bring rewards
Everyone knows drinking and
smoking damages your health, but
you may be surprised to discover
that bad habits can sometimes be
good for your wallet.
If you smoke or drink heavily, you
can typically generate more money
from a retirement annuity or an
equity release scheme, which reflects
the fact that your life expectancy is
lower as a result.
This also applies if you have
suffered a serious illness or have a
preexisting health condition.
You may qualify for an “impaired
life” plan with more generous terms,
so make sure you reveal your habits
or health conditions in full.
annuities
Annuity income lasts for as long as
you live, so the lower your life
EXTRA INCOME: I’ll drink to that

expectancy, the more generous
insurers are going to be.
When determining how much
income to give you, insurers will
consider a number of factors
including your weight, alcohol
intake, smoking habits and any
prior health problems. Serious
issues may result in an impaired life
annuity, which can give you between
5 and 20 per cent more income.
A 65-year-old with a £100,000
pension pot who drinks only
occasionally could get income of
around £5,471 a year, but that would
jump to £5,750 if they drank a fairly
boozy 24 pints of beer a week, giving
them an extra £279 a year.
Hargreaves Lansdown senior
pension analyst Nathan Long said
someone imbibing three bottles of
wine a week would get an extra £96
a year. They would get £441 more if
they also suffered from health problems such as high blood pressure,
high cholesterol and obesity.
Growing numbers of Britons now
shun cigarettes, but those who
continue to smoke will at least
benefit from more generous annuity
income, because insurers recognise
that their life expectancy is
markedly lower.
Long said: “It pays to disclose all
of your health information when
applying for an annuity, or use a
broker to help you find the one that
will maximise your income.”
EQUITY RELEASE
If you are considering raising cash in
retirement against your property
using an equity release scheme, you
also have a clear financial incentive
to disclose any health issues.
Dean Mirfin, chief product officer
at Key Retirement Solutions, said
smokers or those with health
problems can generate a lot more
money from an impaired life scheme.
A 70-year-old with a £300,000
property could typically generate
£128,395 from a standard plan:
“However, if they smoked, were
overweight and had high blood
pressure, they could get £142,595, or
£14,200 more.”
The capital and interest on an
equity release loan are repaid from
the proceeds of your property sale

Garden

SALE
when you die or go into long-term
care. The shorter your life
expectancy, the sooner the equity
release company can expect to get
its money back, allowing it to offer
you better terms.
Mirfin said a good equity release
adviser could help you find the right
plan: “There are few times when
poor health or habits work to your
advantage, but this is one of them.”
INSURANCE
Illness or an unhealthy lifestyle go
against you when taking out life
insurance and other forms of
protection such as critical illness
cover, as you will pay higher
premiums.
Emma Thompson, head of
customer care at insurance advisers
LifeSearch.co.uk, said alcohol intake
makes little difference unless you
are a heavy drinker: “Even as much
as 30 to 35 units a week will have
little impact, but it is a different
matter if you have had liver function
tests, been advised to reduce
drinking or have a drink driving
conviction. Consumption above 50
to 60 units a week could result in an
automatic decline.”
Smoking has a far greater impact.
A 45-year-old non-smoker in good
health would pay around £80 a
month for combined life and critical
illness cover, but this could almost
double if they smoked.

BRIDES in 33 countries are saying
yes to the dresses at Alie Street, a
British brand whose success at making luxury affordable has won royal
approval.
The business, alongside maternity
wear sister label Tiffany Rose,
received a prestigious Queen’s
Award last month for rapid growth
in international trade. It is now on
target for group sales of £4.4million
this year.
Launched by designer Tiffany
London three years ago, Alie Street’s
prices for bridal, red carpet and day
wear dresses range from £150 to
£550. Each exquisite lace gown or
shift in flattering floral pastels is
made in Britain by seven producers.
Along with husband Christian, her
co-founder and fellow director, London began with special occasion
maternity wear in 2003 using a £600
credit card investment and moved
into the mainstream after calls from
customers to expand beyond the
bump. It was a risk, she says: “This
market is a lot more saturated, but
our styles are right for the times and
recently there has been a surge.
“Our marketing investment is
paying off, but also women are a lot
more into occasion dressing and
events these days and we
cater for all weathers.
However, they are also
more value conscious.”
Alie’s fluid fabrics
and classic, feminine
designs have brought
in a clientele of first
and second-time
brides – some in their
70s – and celebrity

and TV presenter fans, including
opera singer Katherine Jenkins and
Strictly host Tess Daly.
But even in the relatively short
time London has been designing for
these markets she has noticed an
intriguing change in tastes, marking
a shift away from blousy flounces.
“Demand is for the more discreet
and understated elegance or boho
chic,” says London, who introduced
10 more dress and 15 wedding gown
styles this season with the fabrics of
choice being silk chiffon, lace and
forgiving fine stretch jersey.
The styles sell well in Germany,
Scandinavia and France as well as
the US and the Emirates. All design
and despatch is done in the
firm’s recently expanded
studio in Surrey, which
employs 18 staff.

to work from technology, logistics
partners to multilingual customer
servicing. When demand spikes,
after a Royal Wedding, for example,
when people have seen the styles,
then we can cope.”
The biggest challenge she has
faced, finding other skilled UK
manufacturers, is getting easier.
Much of that she attributes to the
one who helped her – Kate Hills, the
former designer and buyer who is
leading a makers’ revival through
her Make It British Live! clothing
and textile hub. It helps firms source
local factories and suppliers, find
speedier routes to market and invest
less upfront in stock.
“British manufacturing is now
regarded as something of real value
not to be lost,” says London.

Will you be burnt by the
new energy price rises?
You could actually be saving up to £537^ on your bills
T
he majority of the Big Six
energy suppliers have
pushed forth a wave of
new price rises already this year,
led by British Gas. The moves
will increase the financial strain
of millions and are expected
to see the remaining suppliers
follow soon.
Hikes of 5.5% from British Gas
will add £60 to the average bill and
come off the back of 12.5% price
rises made on electricity just late
last year. The moves are likely to
see the main bulk of the population
– currently on expensive
Standard Variable Tariffs (SVTs)
and other default plans, pay £300
in excess of the cheapest deals
available on the market.*
However there are alternatives
to just accepting constant
energy price increases – which
have brought annual average
energy bills to a worrying £1,162.
The best of these are price
comparison sites.
For example at energyhelpline
– a founding member of Ofgem’s
Confidence Code – you can
compare every available tariff on
the market in seconds and also
switch to more deals than with
any other service. The impartial
and independent specialist energy
comparer does this free of charge
both online and via customer
service advisors on the phone.
Contrary to popular
belief, switching involves no
interruption to supply. With
increasing knowledge of the
savings to be made, switching is
more popular than ever with over
5.5 million switchers last year.
Call 0800 093 1250 or visit
Energyhelpline.com/express
^energyhelpline compares all publicly available energy tariffs under the OFGEM Confidence Code. 10% of customers switching their gas and electricity bills with energyhelpline (and their partners) between 1st Feb 2016 and 16th Nov 2017 saved £537 or more. Survey of over
100,000 switches. *Average savings of switchers in 2018, calculated against average bill of £1,162 (Average Big 6 energy suppliers’ monthly D/D payment method standard tariffs) after price rises enacted. Calculations for average usage dual fuel household paying by monthly D/D.
Average usage defined by OFGEM is 12,000 kWh pa gas and 3,100 kWh pa electricity. Includes publicly available tariffs available in at least 12 of the 14 regions of the UK. Excludes exclusive, Collective and staff tariffs not generally available. Source: energyhelpline.com 10/04/18.
Travel Insurance
Don’t let the cost
of travel insurance
ruin your trip
Shop around for the right policy and save hundreds
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 Payingtoomuch.com
advertised, I decided to give
/lmx
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
Payingtoomuch.com said:
“We use several travel
insurance underwriters
that we work closely with
to ensure that our clients
receive excellent value
for money.”

A hunt for rich pickings
I
n the 19th century, some of my
ancestors left their village
smallholdings to set up as seed
merchants in a market town.
Others across the nation fled
the certain poverty of the
countryside for the possibilities of
the cities. Back To The Land
With Kate Humble (BBC2)
points at a rewind operation,
although on a smaller scale.
She was in Cornwall for the start
of the new series, Duchy of HRH
Prince Charles, swelled by
hundreds of thousands of moneyspending visitors in the summer
months and yet, somehow, still
qualifying as ‘the poorest county’.
It wasn’t clear what that statistic
meant really but you could see how,
in a place with hundreds of miles of
beautiful coastline and beaches,
there wasn’t much doing in the

winter. Kate met valiant individuals
trying to change the story, diving
for seaweed, foraging for seasonal
herbal beers, growing wedding
flowers and rearing ducks. At every
stop there was a tale of someone,
often a pair of people, taking a
gigantic risk and being passionate
to the point of obsession with their
particular rural scheme.
While many of them had tried city
life and fled from it, it was clear
that the city and its tastes and
fortunes loomed large. From the
range of sustainably caught, dried
and fresh seaweed to the locally
grown wedding flowers, the price
tag reflected the amount of labour
that went into the products and the
size of the punters’ wallets.
If all that kept the countryside
alive and working, then fine and
dandy. In some of these businesses,
though, you sensed a tension
between keeping it real and keeping
a roof over heads.
Desperate to find a house for
themselves and their young family,
seaweed harvesters Tim and Cara
went from drying their product in
two caravans to building a
specialised unit to experimenting in
growing seaweed themselves.

Moving house is never easy, we can
all testify to that. It appears it is the
same for penguins too. Chester Zoo’s
glorious flightless birds move into a
temporary home while a new luxury
home is built for them but the move
becomes upsetting when malaria
sweeps the colony, with elder Rud
battling to survive against the odds.
Meanwhile, the African painted dog
pups venture out of their den for the

ushered in a new age of peace.
Equally impressive was young Luke,
who saw how his team was winning
all the points in an unfairly rigged
quiz and defected to the losing side.
The children weren’t just making
grand gestures, they showed
themselves, often, to be capable of
stopping, thinking how others
might feel and changing tack.
Unlike a group of adults, no-one
tried to justify being in the wrong,
no-one got stuck defending a
ridiculous point of view because
they were too embarrassed to climb
down from it. These kids swapped
from naughty to good like they were
swapping stickers. You wondered
how they’d learned to do the right
thing so easily. More to the point,
you wondered how grown-ups
forgot it so quickly.

Slacker Dale Denton is over the moon when his
marijuana dealer, Saul, has just provided him with one
of the rarest and best-quality strains on the market.
However, when Dale witnesses a gruesome gangland
murder he flees the scene, unaware that his dropped
drugs are so rare they will implicate both him and his
dodgy contact as witnesses – and therefore probable
targets if the killer decides to cover his tracks.
On realising their plight, Dale and Saul decide the best
option is to take off, but is it all just drug-induced
paranoia, or should they really be running for their lives?
Comedy, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.

Joint finances are tight. This isn’t a
good time to run up bills. Focus on paying
down debt instead. If money isn’t coming in
as fast as you’d like, think about downsizing.
Having a heart-to-heart with your business

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21
It feels like a loved one is taking
advantage of you. Instead of grinning and
bearing it, stand in your own defence. You
deserve to be treated with the courtesy you
give others. When that’s not forthcoming, it’s
time to reconsider the relationship.

RUPERT AND THE LITTLE MEN No 8
It’s time to think about having a
more sensible diet. If you’ve fallen into the
habit of eating out, set time aside to prepare
nutritious meals. Taking a healthy lunch to
work will not only improve your health, but it
will save lots of money.
0905 789 3703**
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
Not a good time to splash out on
luxuries. A big expense is looming and you
must be ready to meet it. Don’t let your love
of extravagance undermine your fiscal
stability. If you’ve been struggling to pay the
bills, find a more lucrative job.
0905 789 3707**
Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22
Although you’re a valued member
of the team, you shouldn’t act like you’re
more important than anyone else. Make it
your mission to treat everyone with respect.
Adopting a humble attitude will make your
popularity rating rise, about time too.

Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21
Although you’ve experienced a
series of disappointments, don’t let them get
you down. You are a lucky person. When you
feel tempted to dwell on setbacks, count
your blessings. Generating positive energy is
the way to attract love, luck and money.

“We must try and set you free,”
says Rupert, and bending down,
he tugs at the chains and
padlocks, but cannot move them.
Nobody notices until it is too late
that the Ogre has heard them
whispering and is creeping
towards them. As soon as they
see him they run for their lives,
but his legs are very long, and
to their dismay they find he is
gaining on them.
They try to loose the cruel chain;
Alas! Their efforts are in vain.

And then the Ogre fierce they see,
And terrified they turn and flee.
Simple chocolate mousse
An ideal way to end a meal, with a straightforward but satisfying dessert made
with little more than chocolate and cream. Serves 6
INGREDIENTS
250g plain chocolate, coarsely chopped
125ml water, divided
30g butter
3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
300ml whipping cream, whipped
METHOD
1) In a microwave or bain-marie,
heat the chocolate, 60ml water
and butter until the chocolate
and butter have melted.
2) Remove from the heat and
cool for 10 minutes.
3) In a small heavy saucepan,
whisk egg yolks, sugar and
remaining water. Cook and stir
over low heat for just 1-2
minutes.
3) Remove from the heat and
whisk in the chocolate mixture.
4) Set saucepan in ice and stir
until cooled, about 5-10 minutes.
5) Fold in the whipped cream.
Spoon into six dessert glasses.
6) Refrigerate for 4 hours or
overnight before serving.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: If you’ve bought fair-sized fuchsias or pelargoniums to plant
outside over the next few weeks, take a few cuttings from them now, avoiding shoots with
flower buds. Cuttings will root fast on windowsills indoors, giving you a few extra plants.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
It’s tempting to sideline
responsibilities for the sake of love. Instead
of turning your back on those who depend
on you, work all the harder to meet their
needs. You can always go back to having fun
later, when your schedule is clear.
0905 789 3704**
Leo July 24 – Aug 23
Stop putting off domestic jobs.
Fixing appliances, repairing broken furniture
and replacing outmoded equipment are
crucial to your productivity. Neglecting a
problem will make it bigger. Do yourself a
favour and call in a professional now.
0905 789 3705**
Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20
You’re tempted to ask a friend for a
favour. Instead of exerting pressure on your
loved one to write a recommendation or pull
some strings, try getting ahead on your own
steam. That way, you’ll have the satisfaction
of reaching the top by merit alone.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
Wielding your power over others
will create great resentment. You have a
measure of control at work, so use it to
benefit the group, rather than further your
own interests. Selfless behaviour will be met
with hard work, loyalty and friendship.
0905 789 3711**
Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
Be willing to put preconceived
notions aside. By adopting an open-minded
attitude, you’ll attract exciting educational
opportunities. Learning from someone older
or younger is possible. You might gain skills
from someone you once underestimated.
Just because you feel strongly
about an issue does not mean others
should. Resist the temptation to lecture
people about how they should be spending
their time. We’re all different. This makes the
world a varied and interesting place.

Non-surgical IDD Therapy Disc
Treatment for ‘slipped’ or herniated
discs, bulging discs and sciatica.
Spine care is changing.
Whilst most back pain can
be resolved with a variety
of hands-on treatments or
exercise alone, for many
back pain sufferers life presents a constant challenge.
Friends and family are
sympathetic, but unless
someone has had chronic
pain, it is impossible for
them to fully appreciate
how all-consuming and
miserable back pain can be.
over 1,000 clinics providing
care and over 5 million
treatments have been
carried out.
IDD Therapy treats
targeted spinal segments,
decompressing discs and
easing pressure on nerves.
Over the years, back pain
treatments have come and
gone. But since the late
1990s, IDD Therapy Disc
Treatment has emerged
and quietly grown to the
point where there are now
As part of a programme

“My sciatica pain was worse than
childbirth. I now sleep a lot better
and feel more positive.”

network of IDD Therapy
providers in the UK who
are all experts in treating
back pain and recognise
when and how to use
IDD Therapy.
So if you are struggling with
back pain or have a friend

“I could only walk with crutches because
of pain in my low back and sciatica.
I can now walk again and don’t
need surgery.” Tatsuya, London
Margaret Vernalls from Herefordshire with Mark Roughley of
Leominster Osteopathic Clinic after IDD Therapy Disc Treatment
Years of severe back pain forced retired nurse Margaret Vernalls to
become practically housebound. “Every time I stood up, the bottom
of my back would go into spasm. The pain was unbearable”.
Standard treatments didn’t touch her pain and when an MRI revealed
disc bulges, it was then that Margaret turned to IDD Therapy.
“I could feel the treatment working. My back felt looser and the
treatment wasn’t painful. I no longer used a stick and two
years after IDD Therapy, I am still pain free. It’s honestly been
a godsend and has given me back my life”.
“I wasn’t able to move due to pain from
a bulging disc. Touchwood I have had
no problems since the IDD Therapy, it’s
made such a difference.” Eilidh, Glasgow
“I had severe sciatic pain down my right
hand side caused by disc prolapses. I was told
I would need surgery, after IDD Therapy
I now have no nerve pain in my legs.”
Chris, Cirencester

eds are a significant piece of
furniture but how do you choose
the one that’s right for you? Like
everything in the realm of “sleep
hygiene”, it all starts with your
mattress. “Go for the biggest
mattress you can fit in your bedroom
because it will change your health and
how you feel,” says Angela Moran,
product strategy director for Silentnight, who points out that two people
sleeping in a double bed have less room
than a child in a single.
But while there’s a growing trend
towards king-size mattresses most
couples still choose doubles, simply
because they fit in their bedrooms.
“If space is an issue you might want to
consider a divan rather than a wooden
or metal bed frame,” suggests Angela,
“because a divan sits flush with a
mattress. If you have a bed frame it
takes up more space.”
Go for divan inspiration
Silentnight Eco Comfort
Miracoil Ortho Divan bed,
from £459 (0333 123
0892; silentnight.co.uk)
Storage
The other advantages is that divans
can come with built-in storage: “You can
get them with pull-out drawers, ones
where the bottom comes up like an
ottoman – or the whole mattress lifts –
and the interior can be used for storage.”
Angela suggests feet rather than
castors on wooden floors to stop the bed
moving and, for any dust allergies, bed
frames or slim-line divans with legs are
easier to vacuum underneath.
Self-assembled bed frames will also be
easier to carry upstairs but Angela
recommends buying one with sprung
slats, rather than just wooden slats, for
extra comfort.
As Mark Cort, commercial director at
Bensons For Beds, says: “We spend
around a third of our lives in bed, so it’s
vital that people find the most
comfortable one for them.”
‘Go for the biggest mattress
you can fit in your bedroom

your health and how you feel’

Shire agrees
to £46bn deal
DRUGS giant Shire has agreed to be
bought for £46billion by Takeda Pharmaceutical in the biggest foreign acquisition by a Japanese company.
London-listed Shire, which makes
treatments for attention deficit and rare
diseases, finally consented to the cash
and shares offer after five approaches by
Takeda, which first declared its interest
six weeks ago.
Subject to shareholder approval, the
acquisition is expected to
become effective in the first
half of next year, with up to
three Shire directors joining
the Takeda board.
Takeda, which will be catapulted into the top 10 of global
pharmaceutical
companies,
has been looking to expand
overseas after facing growing
patent and pricing pressures in
its domestic market.
Buying Shire, which derives
the bulk of its revenue from
North America, will increase
its exposure to the US, the
world’s biggest pharma market.
Concerns have been raised over Takeda’s increasing debt to finance a deal,
although it is targeting annual cost savings of at least £1billion from reducing
overlapping marketing and removing
duplicated research and development.
An estimated 6-7 per cent of the combined 52,000 jobs could go. The Japanese
WILLIAM HILL’S LEFT COCK-A-HOOP
By David Shand
group said joining forces with Shire
would bring together their complementary positions in gastroenterology and
neuroscience, as well as providing leading positions in rare diseases and plasmaderived therapies for conditions such as
haemophilia.
Shire chief executive Dr Flemming
Ornskov, pictured, said: “With a truly
innovative portfolio and pipeline, I believe that the combination of the two companies
is in the best interests of
shareholders and offers an
opportunity to improve the
lives of even more patients
globally with rare and highly
specialised conditions.”
Shire, which traces its roots
back to 1986, started out
selling calcium supplements
to treat or prevent osteoporosis, but soon had programmes
under
way
for
patients
facing conditions such as
Alzheimer’s disease.
It has faced growing competition from
generic drugs and had previously been a
takeover target for US drugmaker
AbbVie. But that deal collapsed in 2014
following a crackdown by American
authorities on overseas merger deals
prompted by tax advantages. Shire
shares rose 178½p to 4034½p.
College basketball in the US has boosted trade for the bookmaker
A SURGE in US March Madness
college basketball betting
provided a valuable assist to
William Hill’s revenue growth
over the first four months.
The bookmaker also saw
increased flutters on ice hockey
to boost sales for its American
operation by 45 per cent.
It enjoyed an “unprecedented”
run of bookmaker-friendly
sporting results, which included
away defeats for Arsenal in the
Premier League and Barcelona
in the Champions League.
Group revenue was up 3 per
cent in the 17 weeks to 24 April,
with online net revenue up 12
per cent, while revenue from its
shops fell by 4 per cent.
Chief executive Philip
Bowcock said momentum
online and US growth have
driven a “good performance”.
CYBG wants bank alternative
THE owner of Clydesdale and
Yorkshire banks wants to join
forces with Virgin Money to break
the stranglehold of the high
street’s lending giants.
CYBG’s all-share approach
values Virgin Money at £1.6billion
and would create a group with 6
million customers, nearly £69billion of loans and over £58bilion of
deposits. The Virgin Money brand
would play “a significant role” in
the combined group, which would
be 36.5 per cent owned by Virgin’s
shareholders.
CYBG said the combination
would offer personal and small
business customers “a genuine
alternative to the large incumbent banks”. Virgin Money shares
jumped 31p to 343¼p. CYBG
added 3½p to 321½p.
Big Six merger faces probe Retail reaches record low

Warren
puts
North
centre
stage
GEORGE
NORTH
has been backed to
rediscover his worldclass form and follow in
the footsteps of Tana
Umaga and Ma’a Nonu
on Wales’ summer tour.
Warren Gatland has left
nine men who toured with
the Lions last year out of his
31-man party for next month’s
meeting with South Africa
and two Tests in Argentina.
The head coach is using
the three clashes to look at
younger players ahead of the
2019 World Cup, but North is
one of the more experienced
members to make the cut.
Giant wing North, who will
return to Wales with the
Ospreys next season, has
endured
an
injury-hit
campaign with Northampton,
but Gatland believes he can
get the 26-year-old back to
his best by using him as a
centre option next month.
Former All Blacks stars
Umaga and Nonu both
started their careers on the
wing before switching
to
midfield,
and
Gatland
believes
North can follow
suit. “I’ve spoken to
By Alex Bywater
George about potentially
covering the midfield as I
know we’ve used him there
in the past,” said Gatland.
“He just felt he hasn’t had a
lot of rugby and this is a good
chance for him to come on
tour with us.
“I’ve spoken to him about
following other players like
Nonu and Umaga, who ended
up moving into midfield.
“He gives us a different
option, he’s excited about
coming on tour and wants to
be involved.
“George has found the last
year or so frustrating. He’s
had a few injuries and pulled
out of the Lions, which was
disappointing.
“He’s excited about coming
back to Wales with the
Ospreys for next season and
hopefully we can get him
back into the sort of
world-class form we know
he’s capable of.
“The World Cup is part of
the reason George decided to
come back to Wales. He felt
he would be managed well on
a national dual contract.
“By his own admission he
has not played his best rugby
since 2013. He has had good
games on and off and has
been unlucky with injuries.
“He’s been desperate to get
back to being fit, sharp and
the player he is capable of
being. The key to when he
plays well is having lots of
touches.
“He
causes
opposition
teams so many problems
and we will definitely give
him the licence to operate
that
way.
George
will
benefit from that. Come the

EDDIE JONES is hiring an attack coach for next month’s tour
to South Africa following England’s dismal Six Nations.
Head coach Jones has been without a backs specialist since
Rory Teague left last year. England had an unconvincing autumn
and were fifth in the Six Nations, their worst result in 31 years.
“We need to bring in a coach to help with the attack,” Jones
said. “I have the right person, someone I’ve worked with before.”
Former Australia star Glen Ella has assisted in the past while
ex-England utility back Sam Vesty helped in Argentina last year.
THAT WAY,
BY GEORGE:
Gatland
wants North
to play more
in midfield
ON TOUR: Wilson, right, was close to Palmer
A respected
writer and true
friend of golf
World Cup, he could end up
on the wing but he gives us
another centre option. When
he has moved in the past he
has done exceptionally well.
“He
originally
was
a
midfielder but has played
most of his rugby on the wing.
It will be great for him to be
adept at both positions –
being strong on the wing and
being able to come in too.”
Wales face the Springboks
in Washington on June 2
before Tests with the Pumas
the following two Saturdays.
Gatland has named lock
Cory Hill and flanker Ellis
Jenkins as co-captains, with
scrum-half Tomos Williams
the only uncapped player on
the trip.
Gatland has given his star
players the summer off with
Alun Wyn Jones, Leigh
Halfpenny and Dan Biggar
all rested ahead of next year’s
World Cup.
North and his fellow Lion
Ross
Moriarty
are
the
exceptions, but Wales will still
have plenty of experience at
their disposal. Props Rob
Evans and Samson Lee and
Bath lock Luke Charteris are
involved as are backs Gareth
Anscombe, Scott Williams
and Hadleigh Parkes.
Lang to get big break for Scots
JAMES LANG is one of six
rookies challenged by Scotland
coach Gregor Townsend to
prove they are World Cup stars
in the making on their north
America tour this summer.
The Harlequins playmaker
could have turned out for
Wales, with his father coming
from Penarth, and played his
club rugby for RGC 1404
before moving to London.
But Townsend has been
tracking Lang, left, for more
49
By Tim Gow
than a year and said: “We’ve known
for a while he’s Scottish qualified.
We kept an eye on him at Quins
throughout the season. He had a
cracking game against Wasps
before Christmas.
“He has played a bit at full-back
and a bit at 12, but he has mainly
been cover for stand-off. I spoke to
him during the Six Nations to say
that if he kept up his form he could
be in the mix. As a centre, he has
that ball-carrying ability and his
biggest strength is breaking tackles.
But his ability to play 10 means we
have a second receiver and a
second kicker. That’s something
we want to explore on tour.”
John Barclay, Finn Russell,
Greig Laidlaw, Jonny Gray, Ryan
Wilson, Sean Maitland and Tommy
Seymour have the summer off, with
Edinburgh hooker Stuart McInally
captaining the side against Canada
in Edmonton on June 9 and USA in
Houston a week later.
MARK WILSON, who has
died aged 90 after a long
illness, was a revered golf
writer for the Daily Express
who counted the likes of
Seve Ballesteros, Jack
Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer,
Gary Player, Tony Jacklin,
Bernard Gallacher and
Christy O’Connor snr as
good friends.
At the 1963 World Cup
of Golf in Saint Nom la
Breteche, near Paris,
O’Connor arrived on the
first tee slightly the worse
for wear from the night
before. He asked Mark to
take a black coffee to a
place in the woods some
265 yards down the fairway.
Mark duly obliged and
minutes later
O’Connor’s ball
landed nearby.
The spectators
did not realise
they had
witnessed one of
the greatest
precision shots in
the history of the game.
O’Connor arrived, uttered
not one word to Mark,
downed his caffeine and
finished three under par.
That same year Mark
was having breakfast with
New Zealander Bob Charles
during the Open
Championship at Lytham
when Charles asked: “Would
you unscrew this sauce
bottle for me? I don’t want
to strain my fingers in case
it affects my putting.”
Mark was duly proud of
the part he played in Charles
winning the Open that year.
Born in Gosport, he first
worked in a munitions
factory before starting an
apprenticeship as a trainee
reporter with the Salisbury
Colin Mark Wilson
(Born July 13 1927;
died April 27 2018)
Times. That was interrupted
when he was commissioned
into the Army.
After three years Mark
returned to complete his
apprenticeship in Salisbury
before joining the
Manchester Evening News
and then the Birmingham
Gazette.
He moved to the London
Evening Standard, where he
became war correspondent.
During the Suez Crisis he
learnt British troops were
going in to protect the canal
but could not file his story
because of a telephone
black-out in the area.
The everinnovative
reporter noticed,
however, there
was a British
Naval ship just off
Alexandria. He
hired a rowing boat,
made it to the ship and
made his call from there.
After helping out with
the coverage of the 1957
Ryder Cup, Mark became
the Standard’s golf
correspondent before
moving on to the Daily
Express, where he served
in the position for 13 years.
In 1986 he became head
of communications for the
European Tour. Mark was
an accomplished golfer
himself, winning the
Association of Golf Writers
Championship in 1964,
1966 and 1985 and was
Association chairman from
1982 to 1984.
His funeral takes place at
Woking Crematorium next
Wednesday at 1.15pm.

MAN CITY

BRIGHTON
KICK-OFF:
8PM
Yaya delighted to
dethrone United
YAYA TOURE will bid
farewell to Manchester
City this evening with
mission accomplished:
they have put their
neighbours United in
the shade.
Toure was one of the first
A-list players City’s Abu Dhabi
owners signed in a bid to
overtake United at the top.
Eight years later they
have done it, after three
Premier League titles, three
League Cups, one FA Cup,
qualification
for
the
Champions League in each
of the past seven seasons
and finishing above United
six times.
Asked if City had knocked
United off their perch in the
same way their neighbours
had dislodged Liverpool as
the pre-eminent force in
the Eighties and Nineties,
Toure said: “Yes, definitely.
When I came to City, for us to
be a big club we had to put
them in our shadow.
“United were in our way, we
had to remove them. They
were such a force and they
won the league in my first
season. We knew it would be
difficult but beating them in
the FA Cup semi-final that
season was a big part of it.
“I said when I came I wanted
to leave the club with big
achievements. We made it and
it was perfect. I needed to give
Richard
TANNER
REPORTS
something back to the fans
because to see them happy is
unbelievable. They deserve it.
“They have been so long in
the shadows of United and
now they live in this city like
they’re the kings. I feel good
because I have contributed
something.”
Toure scored the winner
against United in that semifinal, as well as in the final
against Stoke when City lifted
their first major trophy for 35
years to press the button on
what has become a silverware
conveyor belt. “I was in touch
with Rio Ferdinand after the
semi-final,” he said. “When I
scored that goal, of course he
was angry but it was a
message to them.”
Toure says his exploits for
City, for whom he has
appeared 315 times, scoring
82 goals, have silenced the
critics who claim he was a
mercenary who joined them
from Barcelona for the money.
Ahead of City’s final home
game against Brighton, he
added: “Some people said I
came here because I was more
impressed by the money. But
after we won the FA Cup,
some started to shut their
mouths.
“If someone had said eight
years ago all this would
happen, I’d have been happy.
It is been a massive change
for the club. Everybody wants
to be at City now. I said to
Hughton hails De Bruyne
CHRIS HUGHTON may be hoping
Kevin De Bruyne is the man who
drops out of Manchester City’s
team tonight to let Yaya Toure
take a final bow at the Etihad.
Brighton are the visitors and
manager Hughton believes
De Bruyne was unlucky to miss
out to Mohamed Salah in the
voting for both PFA and
Football Writers’ Player of the
Year awards. “De Bruyne is the
more complete player, and it’s
taken an exceptional season
from Salah to win it,” Hughton
said. “The progress that
De Bruyne has made in the last
couple of seasons is huge.”
City need to beat Brighton
and Southampton on Sunday if
they are to reach 100 points.
NICK SZCZEPANIK
Garry Cook [City’s former
chief executive, who signed
him], ‘One day a lot of players
are going to want to come to
City. They will no longer say
it’s a small club and they want
to go to Chelsea or Arsenal’.”
Toure feels he still has not
had the respect he deserves.
He was pipped by Luis Suarez
for both player of the year
awards in his finest season,
2013-14, when City edged
Liverpool for the title.
“Maybe when I’m retired,”
he said. “Looking at what I
have achieved and what I have
done, I don’t think so. People
don’t know how dedicated I
was. That’s why I am a little bit
sad because people put a lot of
pressure on Paul Pogba – they
want to compare him to me.”
Free agent Toure, who
is 35 on Sunday, wants to play
on – preferably in the
Premier League – and insisted
he will have no problem
playing against City.
“I don’t want to face them
but if I want to stay in the
Premier League I’ll have to,”
he said. “I’m a big fan of the
Gladiator movie, so I’m a
competitor and I’d have to
beat them. But I’d never
celebrate a goal.”
In recognition of Toure’s
services to the club, chairman
Khaldoon Al Mubarak has
unveiled a ‘Yaya Toure’ mosaic
beside the training pitch at
the Etihad campus.

day while Swansea welcome
Stoke, but it’s the men from
St Mary’s who now have their
heads above the parapet.
The importance of this
fixture was more than evident
before kick-off and the tension
had been stoked – certainly
as far as Southampton were
concerned – by the Saints
being forced to switch hotels in
the run-up to the game.
A nervy atmosphere was
apparent, Swansea opting for
caution by sticking with a
three-man defence and wingbacks despite needing the
three points.
Southampton – backed by a
noisy travelling army – matched
the
home
side’s

formation and the result was a
cagey opening. Jordan Ayew
put a free-kick from a good
position into the Southampton
wall while visiting skipper
Ryan Bertrand and Andy King
both had shots saved.
Swansea
screamed
for
handball and a penalty when
Wesley Hoedt went to ground
tackling Andre Ayew but referee
Michael Oliver waved away the
appeals.
Managers
Carlos
Carvalhal and Mark Hughes
cut agitated figures on the
touchline and that mood
translated to the stands.
Swansea were still the more
threatening, with Jordan Ayew
heading one chance over, but
every misplaced pass from the
men in white led to gasps of
exasperation from the home
crowd.
It took until half an hour for
Southampton to create a real
chance of note.
That was when Pierre-Emile
Hojbjerg slipped in Charlie
Austin, but the Saints striker
found keeper Lukasz Fabianski
equal to the task.
At the other end, Sam Clucas
flicked a King cross just wide
as Swansea raised a head of
steam before the interval, but
neither side managed to break
the deadlock by the time Oliver
ended the first period.
Indeed it was Southampton
who ended the opening 45
minutes with two chances,
Austin

again and Nathan Redmond
dragging a shot wide.
In the second half Jordan
Ayew cut inside from the left
and unleashed a long-range
dipping effort that looked set
for the top corner until keeper

tipping the ball over in expert
fashion.
It was a superb stop from
McCarthy and his opposite
number Fabianski followed
that with a more routine stop
from Austin’s 20-yard drive.

somehow headed straight at

A long delay ensued when

was down for a while before

not for one minute suggesting Swansea had
anything to do with the hotel situation,
maybe it was just overzealous fans with
a degree of influence. But it was a
motivating factor and we were held
up coming into the ground too.
“Apparently we were supposed
to wait for Swansea, but we
weren’t going to do that.
“Our celebrations shouldn’t be
misinterpreted, they were just
emotion. We have a bit of a
cushion now, but we still have to play
Manchester City.”
Hughes’ men stayed near Cardiff instead
but it failed to make a difference as
Gabbiadini came off the bench to strike the
only goal of a tense encounter. Three points
for the Saints lifted them away from
danger, relegated West Brom and left
Swansea sweating on relegation.
Huddersfield are the Welsh side’s direct
competition, but should the Terriers pick
up a point at Chelsea tonight or at home to
Arsenal on the final day, they will
survive.
Swansea manager Carlos
Carvalhal, left, paid the price
for a cautious team selection.
The Portuguese defended his
selection, saying: “In this moment
we are not relegated, although
it’s horrible to have to depend on
others.
“The boys did everything in the game
and they played with a fantastic attitude.
Their goalkeeper made two or three
fantastic saves and I won’t put the fault
on my players.”

Conte will know
his Chelsea fate
in a fortnight
ANTONIO CONTE expects
his Chelsea future to be
decided in two weeks.
The likelihood of him
seeing out the final year of
his contract has been in doubt
all season, and yesterday
the Italian refused to say
whether tonight’s clash with
Huddersfield would be his
final game at Stamford Bridge.
Conte, below, insists his
focus is on the twin task of
steering Chelsea into the top
four and beating Manchester
United in the FA Cup final.
But he then expects the
debate surrounding his future
to be sorted quickly.
“I’m sure that I’m Chelsea’s
coach and my focus is only on
this,” said Conte. “It is very
difficult to comment on any
speculation because there
has been speculation around
me from the start of the
season after the first game
against Burnley.
“And this speculation is
not important for me
because my focus is
only to work in the
best possible way
with my players.
“There are
only two
weeks before
this season
finishes
and you
will know if
there is a
different
situation.

we start the
speculation
about my
future again from
the first game.
“But I am very

the best possible way. I try to
transfer my will to my players
and also because the fans
deserve this.”
Asked whether he would
like the chance to lay down
long-term foundations at a
club, Conte said: “In this
decision there are always two
parties, not only one side, so I
don’t know.
“I like to work with my
players, build something
important, but in our job the
final result it is very important
– especially when you are at a
great club like Chelsea.”
Former Monaco
midfielder Tiemoue
Bakayoko, 23, is
expected to keep his
place after turning in
one of his best
displays of the season
in Sunday’s 1-0 win
over Liverpool.
Conte said:
“We are talking
about a young
player and this
is his first
season in this
country.
“To arrive
and adapt
yourself
quickly in
this league is
not simple,
to go into
our idea of
football.
“He has
the right
characteristics.
I trust in him
and he played a
good game
against
Liverpool.”
‘Staying up is
like title win’
DAVID WAGNER believes
Premier League survival for
Huddersfield would feel like
winning the title.
Wagner, above, watched the
trophy being presentation to
champions Manchester City
last Sunday after his team
secured a shock 0-0 draw at
the Etihad.
But it will get no easier for
the Terriers as they look for
the points they need to stay
up, with tonight’s visit to
Chelsea followed by a home
match against Arsenal to
finish the season.
Yet they are on the right
side of the relegation line
despite having the lowest
wage bill in the top flight.
“If we stay up, it will be
like we won the title,” said
Wagner.
“For me and for us
as a club, to secure our
status would be bigger than
promotion last season. It
would feel like we won the
league.” Huddersfield have

defied the experts who tipped
them to finish bottom after
coming up from the
Championship via the
play-offs.
Their battle for safety has
won Wagner many admirers,
with Leicester the latest club
to be considering a move for
him.
The German, who has
another year to run on his
contract, has always insisted
he will sit down with chairman
Dean Hoyle at the end of the
season to discuss his future,
and said: “The plan hasn’t
changed.
“It is easy to keep focused
because I know what the
truth is. And the truth is I
have a clear commitment with
Dean and I will follow it, just
like I did last year.”
Huddersfield are set to have
