Miliband’s back to fight a hard EU exit
Bid for soft Brexit...David Miliband

Kf[XpËjjlddXip1;ipXe[Jleep
MICHAEL Gove yesterday
insisted Britain must “crack
on” with Brexit as he savaged
Theresa
May’s
“flawed”
preferred option for future
trade with the EU.
The Environment Secretary, who led the Vote Leave
campaign, spoke as the
Prime Minister continued to
struggle to get her Cabinet
to agree on what customs
arrangements she should
negotiate with Brussels.
Yesterday she pleaded for
unity and urged Brexiteers
to trust her to deliver.
She will tomorrow preside
over another meeting of her
EU Cabinet sub-committee,
which last week split six to
five against a customs partnership where the UK would
collect EU import taxes.
The second option is
“maximium facilitation”, or
max fac, using technology to
keep goods free-flowing.
Mr Gove said he would not
back even a short delay to
keep Britain in the customs
union after December 2020 –
the date when UK is due
to be fully independent after
an “implementation period,”
having left in March 2019.
Some Tories want Britain
to stay in the customs union
for another few years to give
time for new systems to be
developed.
But Mr Gove said benefits
of border control, freedom to
make trade deals and more
money for British priorities
must be available “on day
one” after transition.
“One of the things that we
need to do is crack on,” he
said on the BBC’s Andrew
FAILED Labour
leadership contender
David Miliband returns
today to the British
political frontline as he
joins a cross-party bid to
block a clean break Brexit.
The former foreign
secretary quit as an MP
after losing the 2010
leadership contest to
brother Ed. He moved to
New York to head a
refugee aid charity.
His appearance today
will hearten those who
want him to return to
“save” Labour from
hard-Left Jeremy Corbyn,
or even to spearhead a
new centrist party. He will
join pro-Remain Tory
former minister Nicky
Morgan and former Lib
Dem leader Sir Nick Clegg
to urge the Government
to change its Brexit plans.
In a joint newspaper
article yesterday they
claimed Britain was being
“held to ransom” by
hardline Brexiteers.
“A hard Brexit won’t
create global Britain,”
they said. “It is a path to a
fantasy island of reduced
access to our largest
markets and a diminished
standing in the world.”
They were uniting to
urge MPs from all parties
“to take back control of
the direction of Brexit” by
amending key legislation
in their constituents’
interests.
They will speak at a
Tilda rice mill in Essex,
which Mrs Morgan said
they chose because the
firm was “brave enough”
to warn about the risks of
failing to get trade
arrangements right.
She urged Mrs May to
resist “hard Brexit” and
work with Parliament to
improve her plans.
“Let’s not let the
ideology ruin people’s jobs
and financial security in
delivering Brexit,” she told
ITV’s Peston On Sunday.
Crack on! Gove is
defiant on Brexit
as he hammers
May’s trade plan
No delays...Michael Gove
Marr Show yesterday. “We
have an implementation
period that gives us an additional 21 months after we
leave the EU to get every-
thing right. The critical thing
is to meet that deadline.
“My experience in Government reinforces my belief
that we need to make sure
that we deliver things at
pace.”
He added to criticism of
the customs partnership
idea, which Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has
dubbed “crazy”.
Mr Gove said neither of the
two options was “absolutely
perfect”, adding: “No model
like this exists.
“There have to be significant question marks over the
deliverability of it on time.
“More than that, what the
new customs partnership
requires the British Government to do is in effect to act
as the tax collector and very
possibly the effective delivery
of regulation for the EU, and
the PM is very clear today
that what we need to do is to
take back control of our
borders – and that means not
just trade but immigration
levels.”
His
comments
fuelled
speculation the partnership
will not happen, amid reports
that at least 12 Cabinet ministers are lining up against it.
Former Tory leader Iain
Duncan Smith warned rebels
not to back staying in the
customs union, which Mrs
May has pledged to leave.
Voting to stay in it would
“literally plunge a knife into
the heart of Government and
particularly to the Prime
Minister because it is very
much her fixed view, and that
is what we stood on at the
last election”, he said.

Students demand a vote on leaving
UNIONS representing nearly
a million students at 60
universities and colleges
have joined forces to
demand a “people’s vote” on
any deal Theresa May
negotiates with Brussels.
They said some 1.4 million
people were too young to
take part in the referendum
in 2016 but were now old
enough to cast their vote.
The unions said the
9p8c`jfeC`kkc\
country “was only now
starting to see what life
outside the EU looked like”.
In a letter to MPs, they
state: “We call on our elected
leaders to deliver on a
people’s vote on the Brexit
deal so that young people
can once and for all have a
say on their futures.”
They also threatened
demonstrations to dwarf the
2010 protests against the
tuition fee hike.
Theresa May and Jeremy
Corbyn have ruled out a
second referendum but
some Labour figures have
hinted they are keeping
options open.
Shadow Brexit secretary
Sir Keir Starmer refused to
rule out backing a second
referendum yesterday. He
said: “The focus of our
attention has been that
there should be a meaningful
vote in Parliament.”
He could not say how
leaving would be good for
Britain, though Labour is
committed to the result.
Brexit minister Steve
Baker said: “Labour are only
interested in frustrating the
process rather than making
Brexit a success.”

BRITAIN’S Got Talent star
Amanda Holden brought a new
date to last night’s TV Baftas –
her 12-year-old daughter Lexi.
The mother and daughter duo
were pretty in pink at the starstudded awards ceremony.
Amanda, 47, was the ultimate
“yummy mummy” in her gown
from La Mania which highlighted her slender figure.
But it was Lexi who stole the
show as she confidently posed
on the red carpet alongside her
mother in a pale pink dress.
TV stars gathered for the prestigious awards event, presented
by comedian Sue Perkins, at
London’s Royal Festival Hall.
Declan Donnelly’s wife Ali
Astall showed off her baby bump
as she posed for pictures beside
her husband. Notably absent
was Dec’s sidekick Ant McPartlin, who has stepped back from
his TV commitments after a car
crash in west London in March.
Their show Saturday Night
Takeaway failed to win an award
but Dec did take to the stage as
Britain’s Got Talent, which also
stars Alesha Dixon, won best
entertainment programme.
Other award winners included
Sean Bean who scooped the
coveted leading actor award for
his role in BBC’s Broken, a
drama series about a Catholic
priest in northern England.

Molly Windsor, 20, won the Bafta
for leading actress for her gritty
role in Three Girls, based on the
Rochdale abuse scandal. She
said: “Three Girls was born out
Three Girls star Molly Windsor
of the courage of the real three
girls, and the real Holly, Amber
and Ruby who told their story to
us. I want to say thank you for
recognising how selfless that is
and how brave that is.”
Best supporting actress went
to Vanessa Kirby for her role as
Princess Margaret in The Crown.
She said: “I just felt like the
luckiest person in the world to
get to play a character who was
so colourful, vivid, brave and
strong. This is for Margaret.”
A mother pilot whale grieving
her baby in BBC’s Blue Planet II
won “must-see moment” prize.
Sir David Attenborough, collecting the award, said: “We set
out to try and show the seas for
what they are, their wonder...
but also the truth about what
we are doing to them.”
Former England footballer
Rio Ferdinand won the best single documentary award for
Being Mum And Dad.
Meanwhile former EastEnders star Michelle Collins called
for more funding into Alzheimer’s disease after the revelation
last week that Dame Barbara
Windsor has the condition.
The 80-year-old, who played
Peggy Mitchell in the BBC soap,
found out she had it in 2014 but
had kept it a secret until now.
Michelle said: “It’s a terrible,
cruel disease. We need to put
more money into finding how we
can do something about it.”
Full steam ahead...diesel trains will run on hydrogen
RAIL travel is set to enter a new
steam age with up to 100 diesel
trains to be converted to run on ecofriendly hydrogen.
The fleet, which could be on the
network in three years, will have the
same speed and range as diesel
trains but will be almost silent with
their only emissions being water
released as puffs of steam.
The
conversion
programme,
***
9p>`cc`Xe:iXnc\p
planned by French manufacturers
Alstom, would make Britain a world
leader in hydrogen train technology.
The move is in response to the call
by Rail Minister Jo Johnson in February for all the UK’s 3,900 diesel
trains to be scrapped by 2040.
There are growing concerns about
pollution from diesel emissions at
railway stations. The Rail Safety and
Standards Board is studying concentrations of toxic nitrogen dioxide
and particulates at London’s King’s
Cross and Edinburgh’s Waverley stations and has taken readings from
staff exposed to pollution there.
Separate research by Birmingham University found “very high”
nitrogen dioxide and particulate
levels at the city’s New Street sta-
tion. The chosen trains, which date
back to 1988, run on the Greater
Anglia network between London
Liverpool Street and Ipswich. They
will be switched to other lines once
converted.
Hydrogen tanks on the roof will
supply fuel cells which will generate
electricity by combining hydrogen
and oxygen. The trains will be powered by lithium-ion batteries. They
will have enough hydrogen to travel
620 miles and reach speeds of about
87mph.
Nick Crossfield, UK managing
director of Alstom, said the initial
capital costs of hydrogen trains were
higher than diesel but the total costs
of running them for a standard
lifespan of 40 years is lower.

TWO Britons kidnapped while visiting a gorilla sanctuary in Congo
were freed unharmed yesterday.
Last night Bethan Davies and
Robert Jesty told of their relief
that their ordeal was over.
The pair were abducted along
with their driver at Virunga
National Park on Friday.
In a statement issued on their
behalf, they said: “We are very
relieved that there has been a positive outcome to the kidnapping
and are very grateful for the excellent support we have received. We
do not plan to comment further.”
Rachel Masika Baraka, 25, a
park ranger was killed as she tried
to protect the tourists.
The kidnappers were thought to
be from the MaiMai militia who
had demanded a ransom of
£148,000. The group are known to
target Western tourists.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson thanked the authorities and
the Congolese Institute for Nature
Conservation for the “tireless help
during this terrible case”.
He said: “I am delighted to

“My thoughts are now with the
family of Virunga Park ranger
Rachel Masika Baraka who was
killed during the kidnapping, and
with the injured driver and the
released British nationals as they
recover.”
The tourists are now receiving
“support and medical attention”
according to a statement by the
park. The group of four had been
travelling to the city of Goma in
the east of the country when their
vehicle was ambushed.
Driver Guystave Mbiye said:
“Four heavily armed guys jumped
on the road and started shooting
in our direction.” He was made to
march for several hours. It was
very difficult for me to move as I
had too much pain, but I forced
myself back until I was found by
soldiers. It’s only by God’s grace
that I’m still alive.”
Virunga National Park is a
Unesco world heritage site located
in the North Kivu province.
The park has seen an escalation
in violence in recent months as
armed groups stage raids to steal
resources. Eight rangers have
been killed in 2018 alone.
The Sunday Express revealed
yesterday how a crack squad of
SAS soldiers were flown out to the
African country on Friday to help
secure the release of the Britons.

travel to the eastern side of

WARM tributes from politics and
beyond were paid yesterday to Baroness Jowell after she died aged 70
from brain cancer.
The former Labour Cabinet minister passed away at her home in Warwickshire on Saturday evening, surrounded by her family – including
husband David Mills, their children
Jessie and Matthew and their partners, and Mr Mills’s children.
She was diagnosed nearly a year
ago and revealed the news on her
70th birthday in September.
Lady Jowell spent her last months
campaigning for better treatment,
speaking movingly of her determination to secure improvements and
trying experimental therapies.
Tributes hailed the former social
worker’s decades of public service.
She had served as health and women’s minister, culture secretary and
coordinated support for British families affected by the 2001 terror
attacks on the US and the London
bomb attacks in 2005.

Theresa May said: “The dignity
and courage with which she confronted her illness was inspirational.
Her campaigning on brain cancer
research is a lasting tribute to a lifetime of public service.”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn
said: “Her strength in raising awareness and fighting for better treatment for others inspired us all.”
Former premier Tony Blair said
she was “the most wise of counsellors, the most loyal and supportive
of colleagues and the best of
friends”.
Mr Blair also recalled how the
then culture secretary nagged him
to back London’s 2012 Olympic bid.
Lord Coe, chairman of the event’s
organising committee, said she
deserved the most credit for the
Games and for continuing to fight
for a UK sporting legacy from them.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt
said: “She brought magic to whatever she touched.”
Labour Shadow Foreign Secretary
Emily Thornberry called her an
“auntie” figure to other female MPs,
adding: “She sits with Barbara Castle amongst our greatest female Parliamentarians of the last 100 years.”
Sarah Lindsell, of the Brain
Tumour Charity, praised her “courage and honesty” coupled with her
“fierce determination to improve
the lives of others affected” which
has “brought hope to an often-

announced last night in
honour of Lady Jowell.
The Department of Health
promised a renewed focus on
the disease, including
doubling its investment in the

bolstered by another
£25million from Cancer
Research UK.
The fund is part of a
package initially worth
£65million and increasing
each year over five years as

will be laid to rest at a small private
funeral. There will a public memorial service.
Daughter-in-law

described on social media the exminister’s final moments in her husband and children’s arms “as they
told her that she would live forever
in the centre of their souls”. She
added: “I’ve never seen love like I
new ideas emerge. The
Government also promised to
fulfil the ex-minister’s call for a
national diagnostic test

brain cancer centres.
The initiatives follow an
emotional meeting in February

London but raised in Aberdeen
where she attended private school.
Abandoning plans to follow her
parents into medicine, she became a
psychiatric social worker. Her first
elected post was to Camden Council, where she chaired its social services committee at just 25. She
become an MP in 1992, for Dulwich
and West Norwood, south London.
After his 1997 landslide, Mr Blair
gave her ministerial posts including
responsibility for employment and
women. She once joked she would
“jump under a bus” for him.
As public health minister her
career survived a row over Formula
One (whose boss Bernie Ecclestone
gave Labour £1million) being
exempted from a tobacco ads ban.
Her second husband, David Mills,
had links to the Benetton team.
In 2006, lawyer Mr Mills was
accused of taking a £350,000 bribe to
help controversial Italian prime
minister Silvio Berlusconi. A conviction was later quashed but the couple split for six years.
She was made a dame and became
Baroness Jowell of Brixton after she
quit the Commons in 2015.

in social care which could impact
badly on the NHS.
And experts warn of a “care home
crash” as closures cause a shortage.
Although
the
Government
announced a £2billion package for
social care over three years last
year, local authorities are spending
£6billion less than in 2010.
Cuts have continued this year
despite ministers putting in an extra
£1billion, say council officials.
Mike Padgham, chairman of the
Independent Care Group which
advises care providers in north Yorkshire, said: “We have been warning
for years that the £6billion cut from
social care would eventually mean
more and more care homes closing.
“For every home closure there are
older and vulnerable people either
forced to find somewhere else to live
or unable to have a place.

going without the care they need

ther £2.3billion funding shortfall and
that is going to mean more and more
people not getting care.
“The Government has to act on
the crisis in social care – even if it
means we have to fund care better
through taxation.
“It is shortsighted not to support
social care. A hospital bed costs far
more than a care bed.”
The Care Quality Commission
estimates that since 2013, the net
number of homes is down by 1,239.
Caroline Abrahams, of Age UK,
said: “The fact that the numbers of
care homes in deep financial trouble
have virtually doubled in the past

be heading for a care home crash.

CRUSADE
Since 2013 the number of care homes is estimated to have fallen by more than 1,200 while running costs rise
ing the sustainability of care by the
summer but more investment is
needed now.
“As it is, these startling statistics
suggest that many care homes are in
a battle for survival.
“We worry that the quality of care
on offer to very vulnerable older people is being undermined.”
Local authorities in England and
Wales had planned to make savings
of £824million in their social care
budgets in 2017-18 according to the
Associate Directors of Adult Social
Services, despite demand increasing
as the population ages. A Competi-
tion and Markets Authority report
highlighted a £1billion shortfall in
public sector funding of care homes
in 2017 and the Local Government
Association says that the sector
faces a £2.3billion gap by 2020.
Accountancy
firm
Moore
Stephens, which released the insolvency figures, found the cost of providing a high standard of care has
increased over the years.
The National Living Wage rose
again last month to £7.83. It stood at
£6.70 just three years ago.
The annual rise places increased
strain on care home margins. The
average home now spends 52 per
cent of its turnover on wages.
Demand is rising for qualified
nursing staff so care homes are
increasingly relying on expensive
agency workers. Owners may also
see rising interest rates this year.
Lee Causer, a partner at Moore
Stephens, said: “Care homes should
be benefiting from an ageing population. But they are not.
“Care homes are not receiving
enough local government funding to
sustain the profit margins necessary
to run a successful business. Without additional income, homes will
not be able to remain solvent.” A
report by the Public Accounts Committee in September said that an
“intolerable” number of older
patients were waiting too long to be
discharged from hospital, costing
the NHS £170million a year.
The MPs said that every day, 3,500
older people remain in hospital in
England after being declared fit to
leave because arrangements had
not been made for them to move.
In 2011, operator Southern Cross
shut down and as many as 31,000
elderly and vulnerable residents had

Dangers of too much hospital bed rest
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
K@GJKF?<CGFC;<IG8K@<EKJB<<GDFM@E>
LEAVING pensioners lying in hospital beds after operations and illness
can be dangerous and risks a loss of
independence, nurses have warned.
The Royal College of Nursing is
calling on measures to ensure that
older patients get all the help they
need to keep them mobile and stop
their strength draining away.
In a bid to highlight the risks, the
RCN will debate the issue at its
annual conference this week.
Bed rest was traditionally prescribed while in hospital to recover
from surgery or infectious diseases.
But with the average age of
patients increasing, spending long
periods in bed without using muscles
is becoming dangerous to health.
It is contributing to thousands of
older people losing their independence every year through no longer
being able to walk properly.
Analysis has shown that nearly half
of people over 85 die within a year of
a hospital admission. However, most
patients and their families and even
1. Stretch several times a day to
loosen muscles.
2. Attempt to walk even the
shortest distance regularly.
Do not worry if that means using a
stick or a frame if necessary.
3. Stand up and sit down as
frequently as possible – even if no
walking is involved.
4. Try some weight bearing
exercises such as lifting a tin
of beans. Then aim to build up the
number of times you can lift
the item.
JfZ`Xc8]]X`ij:fii\jgfe[\ek
some hospital staff are unaware of
the dangers of too long a bed rest.
Dawne Garrett, RCN lead for older
people, said: “The clinical evidence
around loss of muscle tone if patients
remain in bed for extended periods is
very clear now. As nurses there’s a lot
we can do to try and combat that.
“We need to get patients out of bed
if they can manage it, take them to
the loo, and encourage them to walk
5. Even when sitting down, try to
raise legs and rotate ankles.
6. Try to find a local hydrotherapy
pool which has hoists and grab
rails for exercise and is heated to
a high temperature.
7. Aim to try and do as much of
the everyday necessities of daily
living yourself, for example,
making a cup of tea.
8. Make sure your doctors know
you want the services of a NHS
physiotherapist. They are also
easy to find privately.
around. Nurses also have an important role to play in explaining to relatives and patients themselves why
getting mobile matters – families can
help by encouraging patients to
move around if they can.”
Research has found that for every
10 days of bed rest in hospital,
patients aged over 80 suffer the
equivalent of 10 years of muscle ageing. Rebuilding this strength takes
twice as long as it does to lose it. For
people of any age, a week of bed rest
has been shown to equate to a 10 per
cent loss of strength.
Experts have found that for an
older person who is already finding it
difficult at home to climb the stairs,
get out of bed or even get up from
the loo, this loss of strength can make
the difference between independence and dependence.
If they become too weak to walk
they may no longer be able to return
to their own home when they leave
hospital or may become housebound and rely on carers.
The NHS has launched a campaign
to help patients recover quicker by
ending the so-called “pyjama paralysis”. Patients’ families have been
asked to bring in a new outfit every
day and help them get dressed.
Professor Jane Cummings, the
chief nursing officer for England,
said: “For many wearing pyjamas
reinforces feeling unwell and can prevent a speedy recovery. Getting people up and dressed is a vital step in
ensuring that they do not spend any
longer than is clinically necessary.”

MI5 boss
warns of
IS attacks
ISLAMIST fanatics aim
to launch “devastating
and more complex
attacks” on Europe,
despite losing ground in
Syria and Iraq, the head
of MI5 will warn today.
Andrew Parker will
also accuse Moscow of
breaching international
rules and say the nerve
agent attack on former
double agent Sergei
Skripal and his daughter
Yulia in Salisbury was “a
deliberate and targeted
malign activity”.
He will give the first
public speech outside
the UK by a serving
director general of MI5
to European security
chiefs in Berlin.
He will also say an
intelligence partnership
between Britain and
Europe is crucial to
combat the “intense and
unrelenting international
terrorist threat”.
He will say of Islamic
State that it “aspires to
direct devastating and
more complex attacks”,
despite territorial losses,
in the wake of 45 attacks
across Europe since
2016.
He is expected to
confirm that British
police have thwarted 12
terrorist plots since last
year’s assault on
Westminster, bringing
the total number of
disrupted attacks since

AS THE ultimate modern couple,
Prince Harry and his bride-to-be
have appeared to shun the idea of
a traditional wedding list, asking
that money be donated to good
causes instead.
Reflecting their “shared values”
Harry and Meghan personally
selected seven charitable organisations they want to support.
But despite their worthy intentions, it seems the couple will still be
receiving a gift or two to mark their
nuptials.
Yesterday it emerged that a private wedding list has been created
for Harry and Meghan’s close family
and friends to choose from. It is
believed to be held at the exclusive
private member’s club Soho House
whose motto is “to create a comfortable home away from home”.
Meghan has long been associated
with Soho House, run by Markus
Anderson, a friend of Harry’s.
The Soho House wedding list
boasts a carefully curated collection
of luxury items including a “Portobello silver cashmere throw” for
£315, a £90 “country house picnic
basket” and a “Lexington chandelier” for just under £1,000.
Other high-end gifts include a
green mohair “cinema armchair” for
£2,495, a cosy “emperor bed” at
£2,095, a grey linen sofa for £3,295, a
vintage tray top brass oval bar cart
at £1,300 and a mohair lounge chair
and ottoman for £4,279.
Ideal for any contemporary newlyweds, there are white duvet covers
starting at a mere £110 and, for a
toast to their new life together, “cut
crystal champagne coupes” at £64
for a set of two.
Meghan and Harry are seasoned
travellers so they may be delighted

appear to have
shunned the idea
of a traditional

with the option of a £775 “Vanderbilt
leather trunk” as an option.
However, for guests on a tighter
budget there are £12 eye masks to
choose from, an £85 domino set or
even a leather “pencil cup” for £30.
Harry and Meghan’s close circle of
friends may be poring over the wedding list but they are also more than
likely to be donating to one of the
couple’s favoured charities.
The couple have chosen seven
causes – the Children’s HIV Association, homeless charity Crisis, Scotty’s Little Soldiers which helps
bereaved Armed Forces children,
Surfers Against Sewage, sports
charity StreetGames and Wilderness Foundation UK, which promotes the benefits of wild nature.
The only foreign charity is the
Myna Mahila Foundation, which
supports women in the slums of
Mumbai, employing them to sell
affordable sanitary towels to their
communities.

Lost Briton
found dead

A BRITISH man missing
in Colombia has been
found dead at the foot of
a waterfall.
Joe Tilley, 24, found
near the Fin del Mundo
falls near Mocoa city in
the south west of the
country, disappeared
earlier this month.
His father Ian Hussey,
who flew to the Latin
American country to
look for him, had set up
Twitter and Facebook
accounts using the
handle “Find Joe Tilley”.
Mr Tilley’s family, from
Leicester, announced his
death yesterday, asking
for space to grieve.
A campaign has been
launched to raise £4,500
to repatriate his body
and a further £4,000 for
funeral costs.
The campaign has so
far raised £6,178 and its
founder Tim Smith said
Mr Hussey was making
his way home.

Lady Louise Windsor take
the reins at the Royal Windsor Horse Show yesterday.
The former naval officer
drove himself to the final
day of the prestigious event
and looked in good spirits
as he took in the horsemanship on show.
Philip was also seen at
the show on Friday, the first
public sighting of the
Queen’s 96-year-old hus-
9pJXiX_N\jkZfkk
band since he left hospital
last month following a hip
replacement.
He retired from public life
last August, quipping at the
time that he was no longer
able to “stand up much”.
Philip appeared to be in
good health at the show in
the grounds of Windsor
Castle and is set to attend
the wedding of grandson
Prince Harry to Meghan
Markle this Saturday.
MEGHAN Markle’s father will
face awkward meetings with
the Queen and other Royal
Family members this week
after it emerged he colluded
with the paparazzi to stage
supposedly “snatched” photos while complaining about
unwanted media attention.
Thomas Markle, who still
plans to walk his daughter
down the aisle at St George’s
Chapel at Windsor Castle on
Saturday, arranged for photos
of himself worth up to £100,000
as Meghan and his future sonin-law pleaded with the media
to leave him alone, claiming
he was being harassed.
Mr Markle, a bankrupt exHollywood lighting technician
living in Rosarito Beach in
Mexico, is due to fly into Britain this week and meet Prince
Harry for the first time.
Kensington Palace has said
the bride’s father, 73, and her
mother Doria Ragland, who
divorced him when Meghan
was six, will spend time getting to know the Queen,
Prince Philip, Prince Charles,
9pI`Z_Xi[GXcd\i
IfpXc:fii\jgfe[\ek
Camilla and the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge.
Their meetings come after
conclusive proof from CCTV
and witnesses that Mr Markle
worked with a Los Angelesbased British photographer,
Jeff Rayner, on a series of pictures allegedly showing him
preparing for the wedding.
They included images of
him supposedly being measured for his wedding suit in
what purported to be a suit
hire shop. In fact, the “tailor”
was a 17-year-old student
working in a shop supplying
tables, chairs and bunting for
parties, claims a Sunday
newspaper who spoke to him.
It reported the suit hire
shop was closed so Mr Markle
paid him to act as a tailor.
Other pictures taken by Mr
Rayner in March and drip fed
to UK newspapers included
one of him studying a book of
UK landmarks and another of
him working out with weights
to get fit for the wedding.
Kensington Palace, which
claimed on Friday the photos
of Mr Markle were not staged
and were part of media harassment of the bride’s father,
did not comment yesterday.
Privately
royal
officials
appear to accept tacitly Mr
Markle had colluded with the
photographer but Kensington
Palace still sent out letters via
the press regulator IPSO to
the media at the weekend
complaining he and his former
wife were being harassed.
It is not clear if Mr Markle
was paid for the photographs
but, if so, he may have been
trying to raise money for his
flights and stay in Britain.
His daughter Samantha
Markle, 53, and son Thomas
Jr – Meghan’s half-siblings
from his earlier marriage –
have claimed the millionaire
actress had been reluctant to
help her father out with his
financial difficulties. Samantha has alleged: “He needed
some help and by his report,
twice, she flatly refused.”

American liberal evangelist
to preach a rousing sermon
Civil rights activist Bishop Curry will speak at the wedding
PRINCE Harry and Meghan
Markle have invited a pioneering American bishop to
give a rousing address at their
wedding this week.
The Most Reverend Bishop
Michael Curry, the 27th presiding bishop and primate of
the Episcopal Church, will fly
in from Chicago to speak at
Saturday’s Windsor service.
The preacher, 65, has been
praised by his church for his
“marvellous” sermons and
infectious laughter.
Bishop Curry does not
know Harry and Meghan personally but his inclusion adds
a fresh transatlantic twist
and reflects Meghan’s American background. Meghan
admires his stance on issues
9pJXiX_N\jkZfkk
including equal rights and
discrimination and the couple are keen to make their
wedding day a personal affair.
Kensington Palace said the
couple had discussed a
number of possibilities for a
preacher and praised him as a
“wonderful” speaker.
After his invitation Bishop
Curry said: “The love that has
brought and will bind Prince
Harry and Ms Meghan Markle
together has its source and
origin in God, and is the key
to life and happiness.
“And so we celebrate and
pray for them today.”
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby praised
him as a “stunning preacher”.
He said: “I’m thrilled that
Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle have asked Bishop
Michael Curry to preach at
their wedding. He is a brilliant
pastor,
stunning
preacher and someone with a
great gift for sharing the good
news of Jesus Christ.”
He added: “Marriage is a
special and joyous commitment – please join me in praying for God’s blessing for the
royal couple on their wedding
day, and for the whole of their
lives together.”
Kensington Palace confirmed he will attend the
St George’s Chapel service, at
which the Archbishop of Canterbury will officiate. Ms
9@J?FG9I8E;JKILDGGFC@:P8Ê?<I<JPË8E;N@CCD8I:?8>8@EJKGI<J@;<EK8=K<IN<;;@E>
MICHAEL Curry’s church
says he can “get you
laughing over some matter
and then follow up with a
powerful message”.
The bishop is an ardent
evangelist and advocate of
human rights. He is set to
march on the White House
against Donald Trump four
days after his royal
wedding address.
Curry was made the 27th
bishop and primate of The
Episcopal Church on
November 1, 2015. He will
join the Washington protest
over what he calls a
“dangerous” leadership.
The first AfricanAmerican primate of that
church – he has branded
Trump’s America First
policy “a theological heresy
for the followers of Christ”.
He has also blasted a
“crisis of moral and
political leadership at the
highest levels of our
government”.
Both sides of his family
are descended from slaves
and he said he has a social
justice and civil rights
background.
The 65-year old, who is
married with two grown-up
daughters, supports gay
marriage and transgender
rights.
The Episcopal Church is
an offshoot of the Church
of England in the US and
forms part of the worldwide
Anglican Communion.
Its 1.9 million baptised
members are mostly
American, and it is the 14th
largest church in the US.
The Church describes
itself as “Protestant, yet
Catholic” and holds
progressive liberal views
– including opposing the
death penalty. In 2015 it
passed resolutions
blessing same-sex
marriages. It ordains
women to the priesthood
and says: “In our church,
women are of equal worth
and dignity with men, and
have full access to all
orders of ministry, including
the ordained priesthood
and the office of bishop.”
Lesbian, gay, bisexual,
and transgender people are
“full and equal members”
and can also be ordained.
Markle was baptised by the
Most Revd Justin Welby
ahead of her wedding to the
prince, whose grandmother,
the Queen, is head of the
Anglican Church.
The Dean of Windsor, David
Conner, will conduct the service, before Justin Welby officiates as the couple make their
marriage vows.
Bishop Curry is a critic of
Donald Trump – who is not
invited to the wedding.
The holy man’s latest attack
came in a letter to the President, signed along with 22
other Christian leaders.
It said: “We reject the resurgence of white nationalism
and racism in our nation on
many fronts, including the
highest levels of political leadership.”
Last year Bishop Curry’s
church slammed a decision
by Mr Trump to revoke one of
Barack Obama’s policies in a
bid to restrict the rights of
immigrant children.
He and 120 other bishops
claimed it would “endanger
the lives of thousands of
young people and their families and run contrary to the
faith and moral traditions of
our country”.
Bishop Curry also took Mr
Trump to task after plans to
ban transgender people from
the military were announced.

crossbows sold on High Street
Taking aim:
Jeeves
targets the
lack of
legislation
retailers is Merlin Archery which
has a store in Bishop Auckland
alongside a website which states:
“On some of the crossbows, the
power is so great that cocking the
string should be an Olympic
event.”
It also boasts of its pistol crossbows: “Small and cheap, but they
pack a punch. These are age
restricted (18 years or older) and
must be used with extreme caution! Not suitable for children. Not
suitable for some adults, come to
think of it. But if used responsibly
they are great fun.”
Oliver Clayton-Smith, from Merlin Archery, said: “There’s no denying they are dangerous. There’s an
age restriction which helps a little
but it’s difficult because they are
classed as sporting goods.
“In theory, there’s no difference
between the bow and a crossbow,
the main difference being a crossbow is much easier to use because
it has a sight and you pull a trigger.”
Mr Clayton-Smith insisted staff
do everything they can to stop
crossbows falling into the wrong
hands but they have limited
powers and often rely on their
discretion.
He said: “The law is fairly lax
because this is sporting equipment.
“We check their driving licence
or passport and if someone cannot
produce that we don’t sell them.
“The same kind of process happens online. If someone wants an
age-related product we send them
an email and ask for a copy of their
ID. Occasionally people are turned
away.”
A Home Office spokeswoman
said: “Crossbows are subject to
strict controls and retailers are
banned from selling them to a person under the age of 18.
“We keep legislation under
review and will consider the risk
such weapons pose to public safety
and if further measures are
needed.
“Carrying a crossbow in public
can be classed as an offence of carrying an offensive weapon, if the
police consider there is intent to
use the crossbow to cause injury.”
Confiscated, but serial
killer just got another
SUZANNE Blamires, 36,
died when Stephen
Griffiths, the self-styled
Crossbow Cannibal, fired a
bolt into her head at
point-blank range in 2010.
The murder weapon was
not the first of its kind that
he had owned.
Two years earlier
Bradford police had
confiscated his previous
version along with some
hunting knives.
But at the cost of Ms
Blamires’ life, as well as
those of Susan Rushworth,
43, and Shelley Armitage,
31, Griffiths, now 48, found
it all too easy to re-arm
with the same type of
weapons. Griffiths was
jailed for life for the three
murders. Anthony
Lawrence, 55, was another
killer whose weapon of
choice was a crossbow.
The drug-crazed loner
broke into the home of his
neighbours and lay in wait
with a crossbow which he
used with fatal
consequences.
Pregnant Laura
Sugden, 27, and
her partner Shane
Gilmer, 30,
returned home to
find the
psychopath hiding
in her daughter’s
bedroom.
The couple had
Victim Suzanne
Blamires
complained to his landlord
about him playing loud
music so he broke through
a dividing wall in their loft
and lay in wait at their
home in Southburn, East
Yorkshire, in January this
year.
Lawrence shot Shane
dead with a crossbow bolt
at point-blank
before firing at
Laura’s head as
she ran for her life.
He missed.
Lawrence was
found dead 48
hours later in his
camper van 30
miles away in
Broxa Forest on
the North York
Moors.
Five minutes to buy lethal weapon
TO my horror I was able to
buy an ultra-powerful deadly
weapon on one of Britain’s
busiest shopping streets in
just five minutes.
I nervously entered the
store in Leeds city centre and
was taken aback by the array
of weapons including samurai
swords, machetes and axes
on unguarded display
alongside air pistols, rifles
and BB guns.
“I’m looking for a
crossbow,” I told the assistant
who, without questioning, told
me they had both a pistolstyle and a rifle-style in stock.
Removing the pistol-style
9pGXlcA\\m\j
model from a hanging display,
he told me it had a firing
range that would hit a target
“two full-size football pitch
lengths away”. It cost £39.
“What about something a
bit bigger?” I asked.
Instantly a deadly Panther
175lb crossbow was placed
on the counter. The box
promised it was “built for
power” and boasted that the
weapon “combines tactical
style with high performance”.
“This has a range of around
500 yards,” revealed the
assistant. “It’s an incredible
piece of kit. It takes about 15
minutes to put together. It is
£139 and comes with four
16-inch bolts.” I was shown
how its red dot sight provided
sniper-style accuracy.
I volunteered that I was
buying it as a present,
wondering if they would need
to know about the recipient.
They didn’t.
“Brilliant, I’ll take it,” I said. I
had taken my passport but I
was not asked for any ID nor
told to complete any records.
It had taken little more than
five minutes.
There is no suggestion the
store had broken the law.
FOR many centuries
crossbows have been
used in warfare. There
was no great skill or
training required to use
one, unlike the long
bow, and the capability
of some of the most
powerful medieval
weapons to penetrate
armour and kill at
ranges of up to 200
yards made them a
formidable weapon.
As firearms became
more efficient the use
of crossbows in battle
declined from the
16th century onwards.
But crossbows are
still used for hunting.
Although the use of
crossbows for hunting
is banned in the UK,
there is a significant
body of hunters,
particularly in the US
and Canada who use
them for shooting deer
and even bears – which
gives an idea of how
powerful they are.
The Crossbows Act
1987 makes it illegal for
under-18s to buy a
crossbow in the UK,
but there are no other
checks on buyers.
Despite being lethal
weapons, crossbows
are not subject to
licensing as they are
not “barrelled”.
However, they may
be far more powerful
than an air rifle of a
type that would require
a firearms certificate.
The ease with which
:FDD<EK
;8M@;;PJFE
=`i\Xidj\og\ik
crossbows can be
bought means anyone
can possess a weapon
capable of killing at
considerable distance.
Murders have been
committed with
crossbows in various
parts of the world,
including the UK, and
their silent nature
makes them ideal for
poachers hunting deer.
Because crossbows
were superseded in
warfare by firearms,
guns have been viewed
as the greater threat to
the public, and
legislation controlling
firearms was properly
introduced in the UK
almost 100 years ago.
The many changes to
firearms law have
tended to be reactive
and it may well be that
it is only the increased
criminal use of
crossbows that will act
as a similar catalyst.

GONE are the days when old money
ruled in Britain – almost all of the 1,000
richest people in the country are
self-made, it was revealed yesterday.
Ninety-four per cent of those on this
year’s Sunday Times Rich List built
their fortunes, compared with just
43 per cent when the first list was
produced in 1989.
The combined fortune of the wealthiest 1,000 has risen to £724billion, up
10 per cent on last year’s record of
£658billion.
List compiler Robert Watts said this
was evidence that “Britain is changing”. He said: “The aristocrats and
inherited wealth have been elbowed
out of the list and replaced by an army
of self-made entrepreneurs.
“Britain’s rich are getting richer
but the cast of Britain’s 1,000 richest
people is an ever-changing and increasingly diverse cast of people.”
The first Rich List was dominated by
landowners, accounting for 57 of 200
9p?XeeX>\`jjc\i
names. But now, as the list celebrates
its 30th anniversary, just 29 of the richest 1,000 rely on land ownership.
Instead, food and drink are now the
largest sources of wealth.
Mr Watts said: “Today’s super-rich
include people who have set up businesses selling chocolate, sushi, pet food
and eggs. We are seeing more people
from humble backgrounds, who struggled at school or who didn’t even start
their businesses until middle age.”
Jim Ratcliffe, who this year became
the first British-born industrialist to
top the list with an estimated wealth of
£21billion, is a perfect example – he
grew up on a council estate.
His sudden rise to the top of the list
is because of an impressive £15.3billion
added to his net worth since last year,
when he was ranked 18th.

A RECORD 141 women made the Rich List, up from nine
in 1989 – and although this year it lists the top 1,000
rather than 200, it still represents a 10 per cent increase.
They are led by Heineken beer heiress Charlene de
Carvalho-Heineken, 63, pictured left, at sixth overall. Also
in the top 10 is Swedish-born Kirsten Rausing, 65.
In 21st is Stoke’s Denise Coates, who set up Bet365.
She was the highest paid in 2017, taking home a salary of
over £217million – 1,300 times that of the Prime Minister.

MYSTERY over the disappearance from
TV screens of News At Ten presenter Tom
Bradby was solved yesterday when it was
revealed that he has been suffering from
crippling insomnia.
Bradby, 51, has not been seen presenting for over a month without explanation,
prompting concern over his wellbeing
from millions of viewers.
But it has emerged that the father of
three has been coping with the sleeplessness condition that has affected his
demanding role as the sole newscaster.
A source claimed that Bradby, thought
to be paid £500,000, is “dealing with
insomnia and is resting and having some
time to recuperate”. He is said to be
“looking forward to getting back to work”
but needs at least another three weeks.
He made one appearance over the news
of the birth of Prince Louis. But the
former royal correspondent, who is a
friend of Prince William, might even have
to miss the wedding of Prince Harry this
week where he was set to be a guest.
One viewer, Andy Lloyd Williams, said:
“This is getting rather worrying not seeing Tom Bradby since the end of March,
apart from one evening.
“Why haven’t we been informed when
so many people are missing him – the
best news reader. If Tom is unwell we wish
him a speedy recovery.”
An ITN colleague was reported to have
said: “Tom has been in and out of the
office a few times in the past month or so,
but he has kept odd hours and hasn’t
been able to go on air.
“His colleagues have been concerned
about his prolonged absence.”
Bradby, married to jewellery designer
Claudia, is also a novelist who has written
The Master of Rain, The White Russian,
and The God of Chaos. He is the former
political editor of ITV News but he has
worked at News At Ten since 2015.
An ITV News spokesman added: “Tom’s
off sick at the moment. Until his return,
regular News At Ten presenters Julie
Etchingham and Rageh Omaar will
anchor the programme.”

HEN Boris Johnson described
the Prime Minister’s proposed
customs union compromise as
“crazy” he was derided by
many. Typical hot-headed Boris, said
his enemies.
Now Michael Gove, never known to
open mouth before engaging brain,
delivers a more considered verdict:
there are “significant question marks”
over whether Theresa May’s fudge can
be delivered, he says.
Clearly, like many others he is
unimpressed by Mrs May’s promise –
“you can trust me to deliver”, she
declared yesterday. Although Gove
loyally defends her intentions, some
people are becoming sceptical.
Deliver what exactly? And when? It is
one year and 11 months since the
country voted by a clear majority for
Brexit. Are we any further forward?
All the time the waters become
muddier. David Miliband, new pin-up of
the Labour moderates, jets back from
his highly paid job in America to back
the Remainers. Joining his triumvirate
of failure are those has-beens Nicky
Morgan and Nick Clegg.
The longer Mrs May takes to make up
her mind about what Brexit she will
deliver, the more she camouflages the
terrible mess Jeremy Corbyn has got
himself in. We need action, Mrs May –
and the Democratic Dozen in the
Cabinet must make sure we get what
we voted for!

NLESS you’re one of those dour
dinosaurs of the extreme Left, the
publication of the annual Sunday
Times Rich List is cause to
celebrate. The combined fortune of the
richest 1,000 people in the UK is
£724billion, up 10 per cent on last year.
As all sensible people know, wealth
creation is what powers the economy
and creates jobs. Even better, 94 per
cent of the wealthiest are self-made
men and – increasingly – women.
Inherited wealth and old money count
for less and less.
Typically, Labour shadow minister
Jon Trickett will today denounce the
rich list as “an obscene and warped
system” which “screwed” the poor.
What unashamed and illiterate classwar envy! He should talk to Britain’s
wealthiest man, Jim Ratcliffe, who rose
from a working-class, council-house
background to build up his own
company which employs 18,500 people.

N ANY normal, morally
self-confident society, military veterans are honoured
for their service. But that is
hardly true of modern Britain. While our politicians
mouth platitudes of respect,
they continually allow our
heroes to become the targets of
judicial witch-hunts. As a
result, men and women who
have risked their lives on our
behalf can end up being treated
as criminals.
This bizarre inversion of
morality has been experienced
by personnel who served
recently in Iraq and Afghanistan. Exploiting the supine
attitude of the Ministry of
Defence, a bunch of moneygrabbing lawyers have relentlessly hounded veterans of
those campaigns over alleged
human rights abuses.
Yet the impulse to punish
former British soldiers simply
for doing their duty extends its
reach much further back. For
the legalistic inquisition also
covers the large number who
fought so bravely in Northern
Ireland against the terrorists.
Altogether 1,441 British personnel died in the long campaign that began in 1969.
But instead of cherishing
these sacrifices, the Government has decided to give more
scope for the persecution of
veterans. Under pressure from
Ulster’s politicians, particularly
the Republicans of Sinn Fein,
the Northern Ireland Secretary
Karen Bradley has dropped
plans to institute an amnesty
for any ex-British soldiers who
were involved in the Troubles.
K
HERE had been calls
for a statute of limitations to prevent men
being dragged through the
courts over their action in combat decades ago. But this has
been rejected. The path is now
therefore open to more witchhunts, more show trials, more
political grandstanding.
Already elderly veterans find
themselves under scrutiny. One
Chelsea pensioner, 77-year-old
David Griffin, said at the weekend he was “monumentally disappointed at the sheer treachery from the very top of our
state” after he was quizzed
about an incident in 1972 when
an IRA operative was killed
during a gun battle.
In this culture of judicial bullying, more prosecutions are
inevitable. Indeed next month,
two former paratroopers will
appear in Belfast Crown Court,
COURAGE: At the height of the Troubles, troops risked their lives to secure peace
C\fDZB`ejkip
;X`cp<ogi\jjZfclde`jk
charged with the murder of
IRA commander Joe McCann
in 1972, while Dennis Hutchings, 26 years with the Life
Guards, faces an imminent trial
over a fatal shooting in 1974.
The determination to hound
British veterans is motivated
not by a genuine search for justice but by raw politics. It
amounts to a quest for vengeance by a Republican movement which was thwarted in its
savage ambitions by the heroism of the British Army. The
courtroom is a new arena for
the war against the Brits.
But it is pitiful of the Government to allow this monstrous
legal farce to happen. All the
rarefied judicial manoeuvring
takes no account of the brutal
realities of conflict. As I know
myself, having lived in Ulster
throughout its darkest years,
the province was in danger of
sliding into violent turmoil.
With bombings and shootings frequent, the security
forces had to be tough to establish some kind of peace. The
retired general Lord Dannatt
rightly told this paper: “War is
chaotic and the IRA was at war
with the UK.” It is grotesque
that lawyers and bureaucrats
who have never risked anything, whose biggest fights are
over their fees or their overtime, should sit in judgment on
the
split-second
decisions
taken by men under fire.
The current approach is riddled with double standards.
About 90 per cent of the killings in the Troubles were carried out by the terrorists, yet so
far the judicial investigations
have focused on the role of the
British security forces. There is
also a profound unfairness at
work, because it is much easier
for the authorities to investigate the British Army than the
IRA, since the latter kept no
records of their activities.
As one disgruntled Whitehall
source puts it: “The IRA were
not sitting in offices with documents about where they
attacked and when.” There are
two deeper hypocrisies. First,
while the veterans are persecuted in the name of the law,
far too many terrorists have
escaped any retribution, partly
ÊK_fj\n_f]fl^_kjf
YiXm\cpXi\gle`j_\[Ë
because of the Good Friday
Agreement. The very amnesty
that is denied ex-soldiers has
been implemented for a host of
extremists.
Second, it is offensive to
pretend that there is any
equivalence between criminal
paramilitary thugs and British
troops. The Republicans wanted
to overthrow our society, the
British Army to defend it. Nothing could be further from the
murderous gangsterism of the
IRA than our troops’ discipline
and valour.
9
UT this brings us to the
greatest absurdity of all
about the witch-hunt,
in that there would be no peace
in Northern Ireland without
the bravery of British troops.
The Republicans did not abandon the armed struggle because
they suddenly saw the light and
chose the ballot box over the
gun. They gave up because the
British Army, with the intelligence services and the Royal
Ulster Constabulary, smashed
their capacity to wage war.
They were losing too many
men; their organisation was
hopelessly compromised by
informers. The peace process
has effectively been a negotiation for surrender. It is ridiculous that, having lost the war,
Sinn Fein is allowed to set the
agenda on post-conflict investigations. British veterans are
being punished for protecting
us. They deserve much better.
Their record should be a
cause for admiration, not courtroom attacks.

E MAY not have been Britain’s worst serial killer –
that badge of shame
belongs to Dr Harold
Shipman who claimed perhaps 250 victims – but
Dennis Nilsen was the most
depraved. He preyed on vulnerable
young men, lured them to his
homes and horribly murdered at
least 15, many of them strangled
but some drowned in a demented
coup de grace.
It was his treatment of the bodies that was so foul and perverted,
dissecting them then burning the
remains or flushing them down the
lavatory. Such was his nonexistent
regard for humanity or dignity.
Nilsen,
whose
death
was
announced yesterday at the age of
72 – in his 35th year behind bars –
was a mild-mannered civil servant
whose facade of respectability
cloaked an evil almost beyond
belief.
One of the most chilling books
you could ever read is Killing For
Company by Brian Masters, about
Nilsen’s motives for his crimes. The
book brings out his foul banality,
exemplified by his revelation at his
trial that he enjoyed sharing his
dingy bedsits in Muswell Hill and
Cricklewood, north London, with
the corpses, bathing them, dressing them up, sleeping with them
and in one case keeping the remains
under the sink.
Many of us will find it impossible
to feel a shred of sorrow at Nilsen’s
passing, just as we shed no tears at
the deaths of Moors Murderers Ian
Brady and Myra Hindley or the suicide of Fred West. The only emotion
many will feel today is anger that
Nilsen escaped the punishment
that should have been meted out
to him 35 years ago: if any man
deserved the gallows, it was
Nilsen.
And yet our so-called enlightened, liberal society refused to take
the ultimate sanction against a
man who had surely forfeited his
right to live. Instead Nilsen was
allowed to linger on in prison, a
heavy burden on the taxpayer and
a constant source of both irritation
and agitation.
The cost is probably the least of
the issues, in truth. It is estimated
that keeping Nilsen behind bars
ran up a bill in the vicinity of
£1,650,000 but the real price of
judicial leniency is far higher and
one that potentially affects every
person in the land.

COUNTRY with no death
penalty is saying to those
who perpetrate the most
heinous crimes that they can act
without paying a penalty other
than the loss of their liberty.
It is also demonstrating to the
families of the victims that their
loved ones’ lives seem to matter
less to the state than the wellbeing
of the person who murdered them.
It is a demoralising twist of logic
that deems the loss of a wrongdoer’s liberty can somehow equate
to the loss of an innocent’s life.
Nilsen’s incarceration in Whitemoor prison in Cambridgeshire
and then at Full Sutton maximum
security prison in east Yorkshire
assumed an air of absurdity in 2001
when he took the government to
the European Court of Human
Rights, demanding he be allowed
access to explicit gay pornography.
All on legal aid, of course. His
lawyer successfully argued that
denying him the right to see pictures of naked men was “inhuman
and degrading” apparently failing
to see the irony of that remark in
relation to a man who had himself
carried out some of the most inhuman and degrading acts in British
criminal history. But that is the
same muddled thinking that has
pervaded
Left-wing
politics,
academia and the judicial system

¬ÊDR HAROLD SHIPMAN was
our worst serial killer, who
killed 250 of his patients in
Manchester. He was jailed for
the rest of his life in 2000 but
hanged himself in his cell
four years later.
¬ÊPETER SUTCLIFFE, the
Yorkshire Ripper, killed 13
women and attempted to
murder seven others. He was
jailed for life but later sent to
Broadmoor high-security
hospital, where he remains.
¬ÊIAN BRADY and MYRA

in jail 2002 and Brady in a
psychiatric hospital last year
after going on hunger strike.
¬ÊFRED WEST killed at least
12 young women, most with
the help of his wife ROSE. He
strangled himself in his cell
before coming to trial. His
wife was sentenced to life
and remains in prison.
¬ÊJACK THE RIPPER was
said to be responsible for 11
murders – and maybe more
– in east London between
1888 and 1891. Nobody was
ever brought to justice.
¬ÊCOLIN IRELAND, a former
soldier, tortured and killed
five homosexual men he met
in bars. He is serving a
whole-life term, as is STEVE
WRIGHT, the “Suffolk
Strangler”, who murdered
five women.
NEAT: Nilsen’s Cricklewood home
erated responsibility. In some
cases, he said, he awoke to the
shock of finding a dead body on the
floor. Either he did not remember
killing them or he was trying to
hoodwink the court that he was
insane. The jury saw through this
nonsense.
J
FACADE:
Meeklooking
Nilsen
murdered
vulnerable
young men
for the past 60 years. The death
penalty for people such as Nilsen
would not be institutionalised barbarity, as liberals claim; it would be
a public indicator that the state
has the moral self-confidence and
backbone to act against all those
who commit these terrible crimes.
In that way, capital punishment
would actually represent compassion towards victims. It is hardly a
coincidence that since the death
penalty was abolished in 1965 vio-
lent crime has soared. The evidence
is there to see on the streets of
London, where 48 lives have been
taken this year.
With the removal of the ultimate
sanction, all punishments have
been lowered in a downward
ratchet effect.
Today even terrorists who leave
a trail of bloodshed as they wage
quasi-religious war on the West can
expect nothing more than a life
behind bars – with the benefit of
whatever kind of pornography may
suit their taste.
The other argument used against
capital punishment is that it would
not have deterred people such as
Nilsen because he was mad. Well,
he tried that argument in court,
putting on a display of “lunacy”
which would have stood him in
good stead on a psychiatrist’s
couch. His defence was that at the
time of each murder he was subject
to a mental abnormality that oblit-
O WHAT justification can
there be for keeping someone like Nilsen alive? One
argument against the death penalty is the danger the courts might
get it wrong. With modern forensics such as DNA testing, that possibility is becoming more remote.
And what doubt can there be
with serial killers who have taken
life after life and sometimes openly
boast about it?
Margaret Thatcher, with her
knack of speaking for the people,
once said: “I believe the death penalty should be used only very rarely
but I believe no one should go out
certain that no matter how cruel,
how vicious, how hideous their
murder, they themselves will not
suffer the death penalty.”
The case of Dennis Nilsen surely
proves she was right.

YOU can now sleep easily.
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry
have cleared up their
differences and are friends again.
Phew! Not exactly world-changing
news but the fact that Katy wanted
to build a bridge after years of
feuding with Taylor, and sent
(literally) an olive branch wreath
– and the gesture was gratefully
received – feels good.
A tiny bit of the world has healed
and resentment has withered on its
bitter vine. Hooray! In my books the
first person to apologise and offer a
hand of friendship, even if in pain
and deeply aggrieved, is the bigger
person. Blessed indeed are the
peacemakers and I would say it
takes courage and a tuning-in to
a larger philosophical picture.
Pride means we take the position
of superiority – moral, spiritual or
otherwise – which prevents peace
and reconciliation and confirms
one’s sense of righteousness. Are
any of us blame-free? Deep down in
our soul is the creeping unease that
although it feels good to take the
position of the wounded party there
is the unease of unfinished business
within us that needs addressing.
It’s one thing offering an olive
branch and the other person eagerly
picking it up as a whip to beat you
with and another having the
courageous intention to hold it in
place regardless. It may be turned
against you but, and it’s a small
salve, at least you will know you
have left the door open in the spirit
of reconciliation.
Making someone else the
thoughtless “other” is a very
convenient way of making sense of
our resentment but it only goes half
way to understanding what is really
going on for us. What role have we
played in the upset? What could we
have done to prevent it from
deteriorating to breaking point?
What lesson do we need to learn
about ourselves in this situation
which might make us see it’s not all
about us being the victim?
Family feuds can go on for years
causing estrangement and hurt;
sometimes the actual reason for the
fracture is forgotten and the point
missed entirely. Siblings fail to
connect, parents lose touch with
children or beloved grandchildren,
cousins never meet, as grudges fuel
disharmony and pain. A big price to
pay for living on the high ground.
Pride says “I am right”, need says
“you didn’t give me what I want”,
fear and shame say “I am not good
enough/I am bad/You are bad” and
hurt, just like happiness, is our
responsibility too. What story are
you telling yourself? Are you sure
it’s entirely true?
There is an opportunity in every
rift to learn and grow and see our
part and responsibility in the
situation. Love and understanding
allow us to see other people are also
struggling to make sense of the
world and may not, just like all of
us, act from our best selves or play
our best hand.
When you understand that we are
complex and fallible creatures and
have a sense of humanity and
compassion for humankind you see
we are all vulnerable, that love is a
risk always worth taking. They may
never see things from your point of
view. Forgive them anyway. Not
least for your own peace of mind.
Let go with love and without
expectations. Things can be
repaired and even made stronger if
both parties wish that or one is big
enough to work at it. Let people you
care about but no longer see know
that you have left the door open and
live in hope that one day you will
meet on the bridge of compassion
and reparation and may hold hands,
lock eyes and smile once again.
In the meantime wish them well
and thank them for the life lesson.

Terror alert over how activist
was able to storm Eurovision
SECURITY arrangements at the
Eurovision song contest were
slammed yesterday after British
entrant SuRie was targeted on
stage by a protester.
An expert said it was “astounding” that a major televised event
could be so vulnerable, insisting
shows like this were the “perfect
platform” for terrorism.
The singer was performing in
front of 200 million viewers on
Saturday night when a serial
event disrupter, called Dr
ACActivism, stormed the stage
at Lisbon’s Altice Arena.
He wrestled the microphone

=ifd<[>c\Xm\`eC`jYfe
from her hand before making
anti-UK comments. It has since
emerged that show bosses were
warned that the UK act was at
risk days before she performed.
Security specialist Will Geddes
said yesterday: “Given the organisers were aware the UK act was
a target, it’s astounding someone was able to storm the stage
while she was singing on live TV.
“Any major international televised event like Eurovision
should be expected to ensure
that the backstage areas are
controlled. That’s not even
including the potential for
terrorism. The show would easily
fit the perfect platform for potential and would-be extremists.”
Before the contest, experts
said the UK was one of 11 countries considered “a target” and
advised certain acts to get extra
security. SuRie, 29, was guarded
by four SAS-trained bodyguards
in the Portuguese capital.
The arena was surrounded by
armed police and security checks
were carried out on everyone in
the crowd on the night. Despite

In harmony, the Cheers... most

taste in music their local pub
MUSIC is the food of love for many
couples, a study reveals.
Researchers found couples often
bond over favourite tunes with
63 per cent sharing similar tastes.
A third said they had a “special
song”, which was often the first
dance at their wedding. And a
quarter said a dream date would
include live music and dancing.
The study also found men were
more likely to fancy a woman who
liked heavy metal (54 per cent) than
rock and pop. Women were more
likely to go for a man keen on reggae
(47 per cent) than rock and R’n’B.
Adam Read, at music streaming
firm Deezer, which asked 1,000 adults
for the study, said: “The stats imply
couples who bond over music have a
better shot at a lasting relationship.”
BRITONS are more emotionally
attached to their favourite pubs
than many other local services, a
study claims.
Six out of 10 people say their
favourite pub is an essential
community service, with half saying
they would be devastated, lonely or
lost if it shut down.
Asked to rate the local service
they had become most attached to,
Britons placed their preferred pub
fourth in the list, with only doctors’
surgeries, post offices and parks
polling more votes.
Study organiser Ed Bedington, of
the Morning Advertiser, said: “Our
findings show pubs are striking up
a strong emotional connection with
their customers.”
the incident, SuRie impressed
fans by finishing her song.
In her first interview since the
incident, she said: “I’m so proud
of my performance. I gave it my
very best. I am so grateful for
everyone’s love and support.”
She came 24th out of 26 with
just 25 points. Netta Barzilai
from Israel who sang Toy came
first. She beat bookies’ favourite
Eleni Foureira of Cyprus.
Eurovision chiefs confirmed
Dr ACActivism was arrested by
police. He has also stormed the
stage on talent show The Voice
and National Television Awards.

THE course of true love took
a long time to run smooth for
pop star Paloma Faith.
While the 36-year-old is now
happily shacked up with
French artist Leyman
Lahcine, 31, and their
18-month-old baby, she’s had
to kiss a few frogs before
finding her prince.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever
been in an equal and loving
relationship that is founded on
mutual respect,” says the Only
Love Can Hurt Like This
singer who once got hitched
– albeit very briefly and for the
wrong reason.
“I married my New Zealand
boyfriend Rian Haynes in
2005 so he wouldn’t get
deported. It was a
combination of being young
and impulsive. I was silly and
immediately regretted it.”
The couple split after nine
months and divorced four
years later but the experience
hasn’t put her off ever tying
the knot again: “I do still have
a fear of marriage but I
wouldn’t say it’s something I
wouldn’t do again.”
Are you listening, Leyman?
TTRACTIV E I WAS AT A TIME
“I WAS OBSESSED WITH HOW UNA
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MY GLORY YEARS. BUT I LOOK BACK

NOW AND I ALMOST GASP!” THA

HINDSIGHT FOR SIR IAN MCK

DAME Cleo Laine says there’s
no secret to her success – it’s just
a matter of loving what you do.
When Day & Night caught up
with the 90-year-old jazz singer
she shared some words of wisdom
for any young whippersnappers
hoping to emulate her extraordinary
seven-decade career:
“There isn’t any mystery about
it. You either like doing it or you
don’t,” says the nonagenarian,
who has worked alongside music
legends such as Frank Sinatra,
Duke Ellington and Ray
Charles and was recently
awarded a lifetime achievement
gong at the Jazz FM awards.
She had a long and highly
successful musical and life
partnership with jazzman husband
Sir John Dankworth and
children Alec and Jacqui are
both accomplished musicians.
The singer clearly doesn’t allow
herself to be at the mercy of the
hands of time: “I don’t feel old
basically, so if you don’t feel old
you don’t feel like you have the
type of energy an older person
would have. I’ve collected the
energy of the years – saved it up!”
Of her time with Ol’ Blue Eyes
– who, incidentally, died 20 years
ago today – she tells us how he
once knocked on her dressing
room door before a concert: “He
said ‘Are you ready for this?’ I said
‘I think so. Are you ready?’ and he
said ‘I’m not sure.’
“He was implying I had more
confidence than him – I know
damn well I didn’t!”
These day she’s more sure of
herself. Asked how she’s preparing
for her gig at London’s Royal
Festival Hall this Friday – along
with jazz singer Jacqui – she just
shrugs: “I don’t practise before a
concert. I’ve got a tough voice.”

MEXICAN star
SALMA HAYEK
alleges HARVEY
WEINSTEIN
contested her
harassment claim
against him purely
because of her
ethnicity.
Speaking at the
Cannes Film Festival
yesterday the
51-year-old pointed
out that the
disgraced movie
mogul, who hadn’t
responded to other
actresses’ claims,
denied only hers and
those of Kenyan
Oscar-winner LUPITA
NYONG’O.
“He only responded
to two women, two
women of colour,”
says Salma – who
published an
article last year
describing
Weinstein’s bullying
behaviour while
making 2002’s Frida.
She was referencing
10 Years A Slave star
Lupita, 35, who said
he also harassed her
when she was still
a student in 2011.
“It was a strategy
by the lawyers,
because we are the
easiest to get
discredited. It is a
well-known fact, if
you are a woman of
colour, people believe
what you say less.
“So he went
attacking the two
women of colour in
the hope that if he
could discredit us
maybe he could
discredit the rest.
He went to the
weakest links.”

TAMZIN’S TRIBUTE
EASTENDERS actress Tamzin
Outhwaite revealed the sad news
that her mother has passed away.
Taking to Instagram the 47-year-old
paid a heartbreaking tribute to her
mum, Anna, who died suddenly three
weeks ago.
She wrote: “R.I.P Anna Patricia
Santi. So lucky to have you as my
mum. What an incredible human you
were. Thank you. You taught me how
to live and you continue to teach me.”
Earlier this year Tamzin – a single
mum since she divorced actor
husband Tom Ellis in 2014 – said
she was an inspiration to her and her
daughters
Marnie, five,
and Florence,
nine.
“I think a
person who
feels lucky is
bound to be
happier than
someone who
constantly
feels harddone-by,” says
Tamzin, who
returned to
Albert Square
in January.
“My mother
used to drum
that into me
when I was a
child. So I do
the same to
my girls.”
THEY don’t make TV like
they used to according to
All Creatures Great And
Small star Peter Davison – who
says the reason the show’s scenes
in the pub appeared so real is
because they often were.
“On several occasions we had to
down pints and downing a pint of
water – whether coloured with
burnt sugar or not – was almost
impossible. So they used to give
us real beer,” recalls the former
Doctor Who, 67, of his time playing
vet Tristan Farnon in the BBC series,
which ran for 12 years until 1990.
On Channel Five’s documentary
Top Of The Box screening this
Saturday he adds: “I had to down
pints of beer then go into this
drunken revelry – which I was
actually fairly drunk doing. I don’t
know if you would get away with
that now.”

Secret...
WHICH singer had a blazing row
with his bandmate after a gig so
told a security guard that aforementioned bandmate
was just some mad fan and got him kicked out?
PRESENTER Dan Snow admits his successful
TV career is all thanks to his famous broadcaster
father Peter. “People say to me you only got to
where you are because of your dad. And I reply: ‘That’s
absolutely true!’” jokes the 38-year-old historian –
youngest son of the former BBC Newsnight host, 80.
“But it’s not because my dad phoned the BBC – it was
the BBC who made the approach to us both.” They
made their first historical documentary in 2002, when
Dan was just 24, and have gone on to make many more
including Bafta-winning series Battlefield Britain in 2004.
Dan says: “At the weekends my dad didn’t go to watch
football, he took me to museums. So when I ended up at
Oxford University and got a double first in history, it
wasn’t brilliance – it was all the enthusiasm he gave me.”

N THE same year that Neil
Armstrong walked on the Moon
and The Beatles staged their
last public performance, 17,000
11-year-olds were asked to write
essays at school about what they
thought their lives would be like when
they reached the grand old age of 25.
Each of them had been born in a
single week in March 1958 and the
government-funded National Child
Development Study (NCDS) has kept
track of their lives and medical history every decade since.
The findings have had a significant
impact on policy-making and service
provision across everything from
education and employment to housing and health.
This year, now that all the participants have turned 60, some of the
study members have agreed to relinquish their anonymity to reveal how
their lives actually panned out versus
the hopes and dreams they wrote
about as children.
JK<M<:?I@JKD8J, 60, owns a
will-writing business and lives in
Eastbourne with his wife, Sue, 57, a
PA in the NHS, and their daughter
Emma, 24, who works for an airline.

Keep your garden tools, equipment and outdoor items protected and tidy with this metal storage shed from
Waltons. The sliding double doors and ramp provide easy access, and the doors can be secured with a padlock
(not included) through the pre-drilled holes in the door handles.Made from strong steel framing and panels, which
don’t require annual treatments or paints, this shed will look great for years to come. The apex-style roof prevents
rainwater collecting, protecting the building from weather damage and keeping items inside dry. Integrated air
vents prevent the build-up of condensation.
Available in either light green or dark green and in two sizes to suit your needs. The 7 x 4.2ft shed measures
W7’ (213cm) x D4’2” (127cm) x H6’4” (195cm). The 7 x 6.3ft shed measures W7’ (213cm) x D6’3” (191cm) x H6’4”
(195cm).
Please note, the entrance to the sheds are on the longer 7ft side. Home assembly is required.
These sheds are available with or without a foundation framework kit. The foundation kit allows you to lay a
flooring of your choice (we recommend wooden boards or concrete slabs), to give you a solid and secure floor.
The foundation framework means your shed will sit slightly off the ground and stop any running water from
entering the interior of the shed, and allowing airflow to ventilate.

RE-READING my essay now I can
see that my dreams of being a police
sergeant with a wife and children by
the time I was 25 were about me wanting to escape the life I knew as a child.
I grew up in Essex where my parents owned a cafe and sweetshop and
my verbally abusive, alcoholic father
would keep me up working until 1am
each night, meaning that I was always
tired at school.
They let me eat endless sweets and
chocolate so as an 11-year-old I was
bullied for being the fat kid. Although
I acted like the class clown, deep
down I was very unhappy.
A few schoolfriends I’ve stayed in
touch with on Facebook told me
recently that they had no idea what
was going on with my father so I
obviously managed to hide it well.
It was a nightmare really and I
stayed at home until I was 31 to protect my mother, only leaving to marry
Sue, whom I’d met on holiday in
Spain when I was 21.
By the time I was 25 I had long
since realised that I wasn’t cut out to
be a policeman and had worked on a
farm and as a doorman at a club but
then began what turned out to be a
great – and long – career in insurance.
My first pay packet was £400 a week,
which seemed like a fortune compared to what I had been earning up
until then.
Sue and I had our daughter, Emma,
via IVF and becoming a little family
changed me. I had grown up with
parents who weren’t into giving hugs
– my mum would stiffen if I put my
arms around her – yet suddenly I
couldn’t even watch the news without
getting emotional.
We have made sure that Emma has
got the solid family unit that I never
did and the three of us have had some
fantastic times together, including
holidays to China, Hong Kong, Borneo
and Florida.
Although I retired at 50 and took
my pension, I then started my own
will-writing company, which I love not
least because it fits in nicely around
my hobbies which include gardening
and photography.
So although I didn’t end up being
the policeman I predicted I would
be as a child, I’m very proud that I
have certainly built a good life for
myself and my family and one that
I’m in control of.
A8:B@<8;B@EJ, 60, lives in West
Sussex with her husband Paul, 63,
who owns a construction and
property renovation company.
They have three children – Holly, 34,
Lucy, 32, and Joseph, 30, and
a six-year-old grandson.
AS IS very clear in my essay, all I ever
wanted to do by the time I was 25
was to be a hairdresser and to this
day I regret that I never fulfilled
that dream.
I have no idea where my obsession
came from but, aged 11, I would spend
hours faffing around doing my dolls’
hair, my own and other people’s.
I was also a Girl Guide and
completely mad about David Cassidy
and The Osmonds. My dad even took
me to Heathrow at three o’clock one
morning to catch a glimpse of Cassidy
getting off a plane.
I can vividly remember the headmaster ushering me into a little room
with a boy and telling us to write a
few paragraphs about how we imagined our lives would be when we were
25, which seemed terribly ancient to
us at the time.
Sadly, all my plans to train as a hairdresser were shelved when my parents moved from Hertfordshire to
Brighton when I was 16 and with
money tight they needed me to get a
job that paid a decent wage. I ended
up working in a bank which I hated
and had a tough time settling in a
town where I didn’t know a soul.
Far from being a hairdresser at 25
and spending weekends shopping
as per my essay, I was a wife and
mother myself. Paul and I had married when I was 21 and we had had
our first baby and bought a home. As
the expense of family life took priority, I could never justify spending
money on going to college to study
hairdressing.
Instead I satisfied my urge by cutting my children’s hair – I still snip
their fringes – and take joy in the fact
that my daughter is a hairdresser.
Two of them still live at home with
us because they can’t afford to buy
houses of their own. But when they
eventually leave home I would love
to downsize, buy a camper van and
travel with Paul around the likes of
America and Cuba as well as exploring more of England.
But my one regret will always be
not following the dreams of my
11-year-old self to be a hairdresser.

CUT OUT: Jackie with daughter Lucy and husband
Paul and inset, as a child with hairdressing hopes
SHIFT: Steve’s childhood dream was to be a
policeman but he had a career in insurance
ing that my various dolls and teddies were my patients. It wasn’t
until I went to secondary school in
Cumbria that someone suggested
girls could be doctors, just like my
dad, and my aspirations shifted.
Aged 11 I was bright and a little
precocious – evident from my
comments about Russia and world
food shortages in my essay – and
my nickname was “Mrs Why”
because I asked so many questions.
But a few days after my 11th birthday my mum killed herself and inevitably it completely changed my
childhood. Her death made me feel
different to other children my age
and it was something I couldn’t talk
about.
Still, I remained motivated and
fulfilled those early aspirations to
be a medic. Aged 25 I’d just quali-
fied as a doctor and became pregnant with Alice, my eldest child, so
her father, also a doctor, and I
brought our wedding forward.
I worked at two hospitals in London before we moved to the South
Coast for his job and although I’d
wanted to be a paediatric consultant I knew that being a GP would
be more conducive to family life.
It’s a great career for women and
PROGRESSION: Sally swapped her nursing
ambitions as a child to become a doctor
men with children and has also enabled me to get involved in medical
and environmental politics and to
take on some clinical leadership
roles. Two of my children are also
doctors, so there’s obviously a medical theme in the family.
My first husband and I later
divorced and I went on to marry
Nigel. I’ve recently semi-retired but
still love my work as a part-time GP
and enjoy the opportunity it affords
me to also help look after my two
grandchildren who are both one.
While you can’t have everything
you desire in life, I certainly feel as
though I’ve got pretty close. Rereading that little essay I wrote
aged 11, I think it’s incredible that
my beliefs as a child were basically
so similar to what I believe now,
just not as developed.

HE injustice of a private
parking penalty a customer
received while shopping at
his local centre was set to
drive him away and seek
online alternatives in future.
And the fallout from the £60 charge
that Charlie Hussey incurred for an
overstay while in the Apsley Mills
retail park in Hertfordshire wouldn’t
have just hit his own pocket.
Britain’s under-pressure stores
need all the footfall they can get.
Buoyant trade, not ghost towns,
benefits everyone in the long run
through jobs and earnings.
And Charlie had a solid, understandable explanation for flouting
the rules.
It seemed senseless to Crusader
when we heard his story why both
should lose out, especially as his
appeals to the parking operator
seemed to have fallen on deaf ears.
This was one to be challenged, we
thought, before Charlie potentially
wasted more time arguing the toss
and still ended up paying.
He overran his allotted time in
UNFAIR: Ticket for overstaying time
March when visiting a branch of
Carphone Warehouse, part of
electrical retailer Currys PC World,
to buy a new phone.
Charlie also has one of the Geek
Squad insurance contracts which
Carphone offers where the service
includes transferring data and
harmonising it with a laptop.
“I got there at 9am,” said Charlie.
“But there was a hold-up as the staff
dealt with a difficult customer. I
couldn’t leave as they had my phones
and computer.
“The staff were great but it was
around 1pm when I left and found
the parking notice.
“I went back and spoke to the
store manager who was very
understanding and emailed the
parking company, confirming about
the hold-up and asking them to drop
the charge. He even sent over my
proof of purchase.”
But Carphone’s support for its
customer cut no ice. A couple of
weeks later Charlie was told to lodge
a formal appeal with the operator
Highview Parking Ltd.
Charlie duly did this, enclosing
the evidence. “But all I got was a
standard letter, no mention of my
explanation, just stating that my
ignorance of their regulations is not
a reason for an appeal.
“I was furious as I’d not used that
as an excuse. I knew perfectly well
I had gone over time but I had a
good reason – I could not leave my
equipment mid-transfer in the
circumstances. They said they had
‘carefully considered’ my case but I
reckon they didn’t read a word, just
dismissed me as guilty.”
Charlie was then offered the
chance of a last-ditch appeal to
the self-proclaimed independent
appeals service Popla.
He also received the warning that
if he did do that and lost, he risked
losing the chance of accepting a
reduced payment and copping a
bigger fine. “I find that a very
coercive way to carry on,” he
commented.
After seeing how other consumers
had flogged a dead horse doing all
the right things by going through
these self-serving procedures, we
took the details of Charlie’s case
directly to Jones Lang LaSalle
(JLL), managers of Apsley on behalf
of its owner, financial giant Royal
London Asset Management.
The charge was speedily wiped
and demonstrating its care for its
business clients and customers JLL
retail management director Melissa
Varley added: “We are working with
the operator to ensure this type of
scenario doesn’t happen again.”
Highview Parking also sent an
apology for the “inconvenience” to
Charlie, who added: “Without
Crusader and Apsley, justice would
not have been done, I’m sure I’d still
be struggling.”
8GG<8CJJPJK<D98;CP@EE<<;F=I<=FID
HIGH streets and shopping centres need properly managed and
controlled parking. But the parking appeals service is confusing, often
appears token and, while the innocent are advised to stand their
ground, the prospect of a black mark on their credit record forces
many to pay. For the public’s sake it’s time for root-and-branch reform.

DOZENS of racegoers were forced
to flee after gangs of well-dressed
thugs traded blows during a
drink-fuelled brawl at Ascot.
Witnesses said many of those
fighting wore three-piece suits
while women who tried to separate them wore stilettos.
Two people suffered head injuries as the rowdy scenes spread
from the racecourse to the Berkshire town’s high street.
Saturday’s violence followed a
Bank Holiday flare-up at Goodwood in Chichester, West Sussex,
a week earlier where up to 50
people fought pitched battles.
Ashley Morton-Hunte, Ascot’s
communications manager, said:
“Unfortunately, there was an
incident. Our security staff were
on the scene almost immediately.
There were two very small head
injuries that were treated on site.
“Our aim, always, is to have a
safe, secure and enjoyable race
day. Following the recent incident
at Goodwood, we increased our
response
teams.
Sadly,
an
irresponsible minority can impact
Ascot racegoers flee
as drunk thugs brawl
on the majority. We take all antisocial behaviour seriously. We can
and did eject people.”
One theory was that rival football fans were behind the melee
after witnesses reported provocative chants being exchanged.
The previous fight at Goodwood saw an unconscious man
being kicked in the head.
Staff have passed “very clear
face shots” to police.
A British Horseracing Authority spokesman said: “We will be
carrying out a review of all our
licensing procedures later this
year, which includes participant
and racecourse licences.”

Charlton ‘Junior’ makes his
Three Lions debut...aged 72

Tommy in action yesterday,
above. Right, the good luck
message from his brothers
Jack and Bobby, below
/lmx
Like Bobby, now 80, he wore
the No 9 in a red Three Lions
strip modelled on those worn
in the victory against West
Germany in 1966.
The
grandfather-of-six
described yesterday’s victory
as “the most incredible privilege and a dream come true”.
He added: “I was 11 when
Bobby made his debut for England and it has always been
incredible for me to watch my
brothers play. Bobby is the
best footballer I have ever seen
in my life and I tried to copy
them both as a kid.”
Tommy, who plays for the
Mature Millers in Rotherham,
South Yorkshire, was a keen
footballer in his youth but
never turned professional.
He jumped at the chance to
play again when he saw walking football advertised at his
local gym.
£4m cuts
‘hit deaf
children’
MILLIONS of pounds of
cuts to support for deaf
children is leaving
services at “breaking
point”, a charity warned
last night.
The National Deaf
Children’s Society has
accused ministers of
“woeful complacency”.
Figures obtained
under Freedom of
Information requests
showed that £4million is
being slashed from
specialist education
services across the 37
per cent of councils that
replied.
Each is losing about 10
per cent.
Chief executive Susan
Daniels said: “The
Government urgently
needs to step in and
tackle this mounting
funding crisis. By not
acting, this Government
is putting the education
of too many deaf
children at risk.”
Children’s Minister
Nadhim Zahawi said:
“The high-needs budget
for pupils with special
educational needs is
£6billion this year, the
highest on record.”

MORE than 50 years have
passed since Bobby and Jack
Charlton helped England win
the World Cup.
But their little brother
Tommy was no less proud
yesterday when he made his
national debut at the age of 72.
The
younger
Charlton
helped England Over-60s to a
3-1 victory over Italy in the first
international walking football
match. It was held at Brighton’s Amex stadium.
Tommy was sent a “good
luck” message from his two
brothers before the start of the
increasingly popular game –
which bans running.
Jack, 83, said: “Both Bobby
and myself are incredibly
proud at the fact that at the
tender age of 72 you are able to
follow in the family footsteps
and get to play for England.”

Removing facial hair in sensitive and delicate
areas is what our new Golden Silk does so
well. Much gentler than waxing or depilatory
creams and with no risk of razor nicks, it’s
really easy to use. You simply glide the head
(with its concealed blade) in a rotary action
to remove even the finest ‘peach down’ hairs,
leaving your skin silky soft.
The stainless-steel head is plated with 18ct gold,so it’s
hypoallergenic and safe on any skin type, while the built-in LED
light lets you see exactly what you’re doing. Discreetly designed to
look like a lipstick, it slips easily into your bag or pocket and comes
with a neat little cleaning brush.
Powered by 1xAA battery (not included)the Golden Silk hair
remover measures just L9.5xD2.5cm.

A CHECHEN refugee who killed a
29-year-old man and wounded four
others in Paris on Saturday was on a
security watch list, it has emerged.
Khamzat Asimov, 20, used a knife to
carry out the bloodbath around the
historic Opera Garnier area before he
was gunned down by police.
He was born in 1997 in the Russian
republic of Chechnya, where Islamic
State has numerous fighters in its
ranks, many of whom travelled to
countries such as Syria for training.
Prosecutors in the French capital
confirmed yesterday Asimov was on
an “S card” file – an official term used
to flag up individuals who are considered a threat to national security.
Although he had no criminal record,
agents were concerned he was in contact with Islamic State, who claimed
responsibility for Saturday’s attack.
Asimov came to France as a political refugee. Paris prosecutor Francois
Molins said his parents, who both live
=8D@CPJL@:@;<9C@KQ
TWO sisters aged nine and 12
were in a family which killed at
least 13 people yesterday in an
Islamic State suicide bomb blitz
on Christian churches.
The girls, their parents and
brothers aged 16 and 18 died in
synchronised attacks on three
churches in Surabaya, Indonesia.
The girls blew up one church,
their parents a second and the
teenage boys the third.
in Paris, and a man, 20, were arrested
yesterday and are in custody.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb
said the man who died was a passerby. A man, 34, and a woman, 54, were
seriously hurt and a woman, 26, and
man, 31, were slightly injured.
Police tried to stop Asimov with a
Taser before shooting him dead soon
after the attack began at 8.45pm.

E IS the wealthiest person you’ve never heard
of and even he admits to
being staggered by his
success. “You should see
a picture of the council
house where I started out,” says
the man whose father left school
at the age of 14 without any qualifications, to become a joiner.
Now industrial chemist Jim
Ratcliffe, 65, is officially Britain’s
richest man with a fortune estimated at £21billion. From his
humble beginnings in Failsworth,
near Manchester, the enterprising chemist has pole-vaulted
into top position in the Sunday
Times Rich List – he was at 18th
place in 2017 – and in the process
has become the first UK-born
person to top the chart since the
Duke of Westminster in 2003.
The compilers increased his
wealth by £15billion over last
year after being given more
access to the accounts of his
petrochemical company Ineos.
What is truly remarkable, however, is that Ratcliffe didn’t start
his first business until weeks
before he was 40 and didn’t found
Ineos until he was 45. Yet two
decades later millions of us use
his products every day, even if we
don’t know it.
His company manufactures
raw materials for products ranging from bottle caps and toothpaste to computers and cars.
Today he still owns 60 per cent
of the company that employs
18,500 people across 181 sites in
22 countries and made profits
last year of £5.15billion.
However, the father-of-three
doesn’t believe in spending all
his time in boardrooms. He may
have the standard badges of the
super-rich – a superyacht, the
256 feet-long Hampshire II, and
mansions in Chelsea and Hampshire – but he is also a thrillseeker who has made trips to
both the North and South Poles.
In 2015 he went on a monthlong motorbike trip to South
Africa and last summer he
completed a gruelling Ironman
triathlon which saw him swim
2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and run
a full marathon of 26.3 miles in
less than 15 hours.
He is also a philanthropist who
has ploughed millions of pounds
into tourism in Tanzania, as well
as buying up tracts of land in
Iceland as part of an initiative to
preserve North Atlantic salmon.
On the home front he is proud
to be the money behind the Daily
Mile scheme which encourages
500,000 primary schoolchildren
in the UK to exercise for 15 minutes every day, with significant
improvements to their health.
So just how has the man fired
from his first job after just three
days made the transition from
council house to superyacht?

SINGING legend Frank Sinatra, who died
20 years ago today aged 82, proved
typically defiant when it came to his boozy
reputation.
“I feel sorry for people that don’t drink,
because when they wake
up in the morning, that is
the best they’re going to
feel all day,” he once
remarked. Ol’ Blue Eyes,
pictured, also concluded:
“Alcohol may be man’s
worst enemy but the
Bible says love your
enemy.”
It has been claimed
Sinatra was even buried with a bottle of his
beloved Jack Daniel’s whiskey.

MEANWHILE, guests at Jane Fonda’s house
can look forward to raising a glass or two.
Revealing she recently had a bar installed
in her home, the 80-year-old actress now
explains: “It’s like a focal point, a social focal
point. So then I had to go and get the best
tequila, the best vodka.” Cheers!
HAVING mischievously expressed his
“dismay” in the House of Commons last
week that Brexit would not lead to Britain
leaving Eurovision, colourful Tory MP
Michael Fabricant now highlights one
subsequent poll.
“Although I was only joking about
leaving the Eurovision Song Contest, it
seems 56 per cent to 44 per cent agree with
me,” he points out.
NORMALLY busy exchanging insults over
social media, breakfast TV foes Piers Morgan
and Dan Walker will go head to head at an
upcoming celebrity golf match.
Due to take on the BBC’s Walker at Surrey
course Wentworth later this month, Morgan
tells his rival: “You’re going down, lanky.” You
can be sure the victor will not be holding back
on the bragging rights.
RANKED the UK’s wealthiest musician
– worth an estimated £820million – Sir Paul
McCartney has long been at pains to dispel
unflattering suggestions that he could be
more generous with the pennies.
“I’m really not that tight,” the ex-Beatle
once stressed. Insisting he was anxious not
to overindulge his offspring when they
were growing up, he added of fashion
designer daughter Stella: “I remember on
her 18th birthday she wanted a car, so I
said I’d look at a second-hand one. Ringo
had a right go at me. He said: ‘Buy her a
Porsche. Go on, buy her one!’ But I said no,
because how many other kids have a
Porsche? You end up with spoilt brats
running around.”

ORN in 1952, Ratcliffe
was three when his parents moved from their
council house in Failsworth to
Hull,
Yorkshire.
There
he
attended Beverley Grammar
School where he likes to suggest
he coasted. “I just played football, really,” he says. “That’s all I
was interested in.”
By the time he had entered the
school’s sixth form he was running the Industrial Society, which
involved setting up tours of paint
factories, chemical plants and
the like for fellow students.
“I did have this inkling that I
wanted to be successful – that I
wanted to be a millionaire one
day,” he told the Sunday Times.
“Those things were in my head
but I was just dreaming, really.”
Curiously
while
Beverley
Grammar School’s list of “notable alumni” includes “poetry
slam” champion Daniel Piper, it
makes no mention of the man
23
MIDAS TOUCH: Jim Ratcliffe, the street where he was born and the Hampshire II, his 256ft superyacht
who is now the richest in the
country. The school is missing a
marketing trick here but perhaps this suits the publicity-shy
Ratcliffe who has always been
fixated on building his business
rather than his image.
Arriving at Birmingham University in 1971 to study chemical
engineering, he found himself
ranked near the bottom of that
year’s intake but thought this
fair because of the time he’d
spent on the football pitch.
Intriguingly, he chose Birmingham over Imperial College
because at the age of 18 he’d
“never been to London”.
Emerging with a 2:1, he got a
job with BP but was sacked after
that now notorious three days
for having eczema after his boss
read his medical report and
decided that he couldn’t risk
investing five years training in a
man who might prove allergic to
the company’s products.
Ratcliffe then landed a job
with Esso, who funded his MBA
at London Business School, after
which he worked with a chemicals manufacturer until his 30s.
It was a switch to a career in
venture capital that brought out
his entrepreneurial side and he
mortgaged his house to invest in
businesses of his own.
By now he was married to
Amanda Townson, with whom
he has two sons. They divorced
in 1995 and he has one daughter
with his second wife, Alicia.
Last year Ratcliffe made headlines when he announced plans
to create an heir to Land Rover’s
iconic Defender off-roader – a
vehicle beloved of the Queen and
James Bond but discontinued in
2016. He hopes to build it in Britain but is drawing on German
engineering expertise to ensure
it is “unbreakable”.
“When I’m in Africa I much
prefer to be in a Land Rover but
I always make sure we have a
picnic basket in the back for
when it breaks down,” he says. It
is an insight perhaps into the
sort of strategic thinking that
has made him his billions.
MORE than 20 years after a botched throat
operation caused the loss of her singing
voice, Dame Julie Andrews,
pictured, tells The Lady
magazine: “It seems to me
that when something like
this happens, there are two
ways to go. One is to cave
in completely and the other
is to get up and do. I was
raised never to carp on
about things and never
moan – that was what my
family taught me at home.”
RESPONDING to news that Monty
Python colleague Terry Gilliam suffered a
health scare, John Cleese announces:
“Delighted to hear that Terry G’s ‘stroke’ is
extremely minor.”
While fellow Python Graham Chapman
died in 1989, Cleese adds of movie director
Gilliam: “I reminded him that he predicted
years ago that the Pythons would die in
alphabetical order, so he has to hang
around a bit.”
And possibly good news for the Python
whose surname is last on the alphabetical
list – Michael Palin?

GEORGE Harrison’s first electric guitar is
up for auction at £220,000.
The Beatles legend acquired his beloved
Hofner Club 40 model in the summer of
1959 as a keen 16-year-old. Although
Harrison described it as “the most fantastic
guitar ever”, he was persuaded by manager
Brian Epstein to give it away to promote the
band’s 1966 Germany tour.
The guitar was offered as star prize for
the winners of “The Best Beat Band in
Germany” competition which was won by
local band The Faces – not to be confused
with the British group of the same name.
The Hofner was presented to singer
Frank Dostal, who kept it until his death
last year. His widow Mary has put it up for
sale with US-based Julien’s Auctions.
The sale takes place on May 19.
Merry hell at plan
to build on site of
Robin Hood grave
9pDXib9iXeX^Xe
CONTROVERSIAL
plans
to
concrete over the supposed grave
of Robin Hood are being fought
by thousands of protesters.
They have taken up arms
against a decision that could see
warehouses built on the meadow
where the outlaw is said to have
fired his last arrow.
Some 2,500 people have signed
an online petition calling on
council bosses to drop plans to
earmark the Green Belt land as
an industrial estate.
The grave is said to be in the
vicinity of a folly near Brighouse,
West Yorkshire.
Once wrongly assumed to
contain his bones, it was built in
the 1700s but fell into disrepair.
Petition
organiser
Gareth
Nolan said: “Apart from two
medieval manuscripts there are
very few tangible relics of Robin
Hood in existence.
“As he is one of England’s foremost national heroes, the destruction of the site would be a loss to
the community, a loss for local
heritage and ultimately, a loss to
the international community.
“It is said that he cut his last
arrows from the yew tree in the
local churchyard, the dead trunk
of which can still be seen standing there today.”
Robert Bamforth, of the Campaign to Protect Rural England,
said the bureaucrats were sacrificing the whole tourism potential
of the area’s heritage. He added:
“Everyone locally believes that is
where he died and no one has
ever challenged that legend.
“If you have a Japanese tourist
The ruined folly in West Yorkshire, once said to contain Robin’s bones
and you say to them ‘Robin Hood
died here and he shot his arrow
over that warehouse’ it doesn’t
quite have the same ring to it.”
Max Rathwell, of Spen Valley
Civic Society, said: “The idea is
bonkers. It is a treasure island in
an industrial landscape.”
Barbara Green, of the Yorkshire
Robin Hood Society, said: “It
really annoys me that the council
has never shown the slightest
interest in Robin’s grave.”
However, his legend lives on in
the movie world, with Sean Connery, Russell Crowe and Kevin
Costner immortalising his name.
A public inquiry is under way
into Kirklees Council’s Local
Plan. It has refused to comment.

I RECENTLY watched a TV
programme about how the Nazis
infiltrated every aspect of their
citizens’ lives.
One of the things they did was
telling them what to eat. Sound
familiar?
People are fed up of having the
nanny state telling them what to
do and are certainly fed up of being
preached to by a couple of
sanctimonious cooks.
A sugar tax will do nothing to
solve the problem but will bring in
plenty of money to the Treasury in
the form of a stealth tax.

I HOPE Theresa May gives short

suggesting an extension to the
21-month Brexit implementation
period (“Fury at new Brexit trade

Timothy resigned after the last
general election as the architect of
a car-crash campaign which saw a
Government majority disappear.
It’s about time the PM acted
more like an Iron Lady rather than
a softer aluminium version and
stop this waffle.
If the PM hasn’t the bottle to

DIABETES is a debilitating illness and causes much pain
and suffering. But does this mean we should be able to
forbid people choices of what they eat (“Sugar tax on
food to wipe out diabetes”, May 11)?
We can educate children at school as to what is right.
We can advise parents as to what is right. But we must
not start legislating what people eat and drink. We must
also ensure that the replacement foods are cheaper than
the “banned” foods as in many cases they are not.
If we do legislate against sugar where do we stop? Do
we advocate and ban dairy products with relation to
kidney ailments? Do we legislate and restrict alcoholic
intake? Do we stop people smoking in their own home?
People will always eat what they want. Changes must
come from education, not the desires of TV chefs such as
Jamie Oliver on personal campaigns. Freedom to eat
what we choose is as important as freedom of speech.
Educate, don’t dictate.

£500,000 in compensation to Abdul

A much better solution would be

Let’s not forget the military is

Fogle is as he continues

In an increasingly boring world

breaking out of their comfort zone

So what if there are dangers?
Fogle has adventure flowing
through his veins and if I was to be
stranded on a rock face in terrible
weather I would definitely want
someone of his ilk by my side.
And if the worst should happen
then, like animal lover Steve Irwin,
Fogle would leave us doing

home care until her death in 1998.
The carers were directly employed
by social services, they were
carefully vetted and trained to
provide care to the elderly and the
disabled. They worked hard visiting
to provide care to the needy.
Regrettably this direct
employment of carers was phased
out, their conditions of service
reduced and a once proud and
excellent service was no more.
History may judge us as we judge
the Victorian workhouse; a place of
last resort for our elderly, a place to
be avoided, a place of shame.
When Daily Express reporters

The style secrets of
fashion’s new queen
Stylist RIVKIE BAUM
casts an expert eye over
Meghan Markle’s most
iconic looks and reveals
how to recreate them
on the high street
Pictures: GETTY
RED CARPET ROYALTY
Their engagement marked a new phase in
Meghan and Harry’s public persona. While
rumours of an impending betrothal had been
circulating for months, the official engagement
photos marked the couple’s first opportunity to
give the public a real insight into their
relationship.
The shots revealed a couple very much in love
but they also suggested that perhaps Meghan
hadn’t entirely left Hollywood behind.
She chose a dazzling couture gown from
Ralph & Russo which wouldn’t have looked out
of place on a red carpet.
Featuring an embellished bodice and black
ruffled silk skirt, the dress was reportedly worth
£56,000 and was a world away from the more
traditional fashion choices seen in earlier royal
engagement pictures.
The choice of gown surprised many due to its
daring sheer bodice and it also kicked off
speculation that Ralph & Russo might be the designers
behind the most important wedding dress of 2018.
I
T’S NO surprise that Meghan Markle
was the most popular search term on the
internet last year. When the engagement
between the glamorous 36-year-old
American actress and Prince Harry was
announced in November she was thrust
into the spotlight and since then has become
a regular fixture at her husband-to-be’s side,
taking on multiple royal engagements as she
prepares for her new role.
And with the royal wedding just days away,
Marklemania is in full swing. While the future
royal is used to life in front of the lens, the
intense scrutiny that comes with being a
member of the Royal Family means that every
style choice matters.
Here, we glance back at her most defining
fashion moments and reveal how to recreate
the looks on the high street.
HOW TO WEAR IT: Dress, £295, Phase Eight (phase-eight.com)
FASHION
FORWARD
SUIT YOURSELF
The trouser suit has long
been heralded as a symbol of
power and Meghan’s modern
interpretation of the style
classic suggests that the
monarchy is entering a new
and thoroughly modern era.
As she arrived at the
Endeavour Fund Awards in
February she was a picture
of understated elegance in
a beautifully tailored
Alexander McQueen suit.
While it’s often expected
that royal women wear
traditional evening and
cocktail gowns to big events,
Meghan is carving out her
own style and nowhere more
so than in this neatly cut
jacket and slimfit cropped
cigarette trousers.
The unusual choice of
wearing a suit to such an
engagement could suggest
Meghan wants to take a
low-key approach in her new
role so that she doesn’t overshadow more
senior members of the Royal Family.

COOL AND CASUAL
Harry and Meghan sent the media into
meltdown when they first stepped out
together at the 2017 Invictus Games.
Her debut public appearance hinted
that Meghan planned to inject a little
LA style into the royal rulebook.
While the Duchess of Cambridge
sticks to classic straight-cut, dark-wash
denim, Meghan was the epitome of
relaxed cool in a pair of distressed
designer jeans from Mother Denim.
Despite the £160 price tag, the jeans
have been a sell-out ever since, with
hundreds of names on the waiting list.
She paired them with an oversized,
boyfriend-style white shirt from fashion
designer (and rumoured matchmaker of
the happy couple) Misha Nonoo.
And she accessorised with a tan tote
and pumps and personalised
sunglasses from British
eyewear brand Finlay & Co.

Mango (mango.com); jeans, £55,

(finlayandco.com)
Last month Meghan
and Harry attended
a reception in
London for the
Commonwealth Youth
Forum. She opted for
a utilitarian-inspired
summer dress from
Altuzarra with a black
Camilla And Marc
blazer casually draped
over her shoulders.
With slim shoulder
straps, pinstripe
fabric and statement
buttons, this dress
marked a fashion
forward approach to
royal style.
Meghan has mainly
stuck to a muted or
monochrome palette
for royal engagements
so her clothes do not
overshadow the
events she is
attending. She chose to wear a crossbody bag, ensuring she was hands-free to
interact with the public.
This open, relaxed attitude is just one
of the reasons the British public has
taken this US import to their hearts.

AKING hormone
replacement therapy
(HRT) has long been the
subject of intense debate.
The treatment relieves the
uncomfortable symptoms
that affect most women when they
are going through the menopause,
including hot flushes, night sweats
and mood swings.
In the past, women have been put
off the drug because research
suggested a link between HRT and
breast cancer.
Yet last week leading beauty and
wellness expert Liz Earle said she
believes women should start taking
hormones from the age of 45.
She says: “From 45 onwards the
studies show that the earlier you
take it the better protected you are,
particularly from heart disease.”
But is she right? We asked
specialist gynaecologist Dr Heather
Currie and natural menopause
expert Maryon Stewart what they
think.
YES
JXpj;i?\Xk_\i
:lii`\
WHEN I heard Liz Earle was talking
about HRT and menopause, I was
glad she was opening up.
In the past it has been something
of a taboo subject, so anything that
raises awareness and encourages
women to share their experiences is
helpful.
When it comes to menopause,
every woman is different. HRT can
be very useful for controlling
symptoms and we know that if
women start taking it under the age
of 60, then it benefits the heart and
bones as well. It’s true that women

onwards, we ask two experts for their views

are now taking it for longer but that
is because we have a better
understanding of how long
menopause symptoms can last.
We used to think hot flushes,
sweats and mood swings were only
a problem for a short period of time
but now we know that they can
come and go for a number of years.
Women are now able to choose to
take the drug for as long as they feel
it’s of benefit to them.
In recent years, some women
avoided taking HRT because of the
risk of developing breast cancer but
many are now looking to return to
the drug.
It is true that HRT leads to an
increased risk of getting breast
cancer. And for women who’ve had
a hormone-dependent cancer I
would recommend being cautious.
However in previous years there
has been an exaggeration of risks in
the way studies were interpreted.
Now we have a better
understanding and there is
gradually more confidence about
using HRT again. But while HRT
can be beneficial, I wouldn’t
advocate every woman over 45
taking it. Instead I would advise its
use when women begin to show
symptoms of the menopause.
If you have any symptoms, I’d
recommend gathering as much
information as possible before
visiting your GP so you can get the
most out of the appointment, as
they’re often very short.
The best place to start is the
Nice guidelines, which say that if
a woman is having menopausal
symptoms, she should be offered
HRT because it’s the most effective
way to keep them at bay. They give
a good overview of the risks of
taking it too. For some women,
taking HRT may be the right thing
to do but there shouldn’t be
a blanket approach.

I WAS outraged by Liz Earle’s
comments that women should start
taking HRT at 45.
I simply don’t agree that people
should be taking it at a younger
age. In fact some research shows
women shouldn’t take it in the long
term because it can lead to various
health risks.
HRT is not something women
should open the door to unless they
absolutely have to.
There’s a real lack of education
about menopause. I want women to
feel they have choices so they don’t
feel pressured into taking hormones
which have side effects. I think
menopause is a transition, not a
medical condition, and it’s
something you can get through and
come out of the other side feeling
brilliant without taking hormones.
In fact I believe most women can
overcome their menopause
symptoms with good diet, exercise
and relaxation techniques.
For my clients I recommend
making dietary changes so their
bodies can absorb nutrients better.
Studies show that 50 to 80 per
cent of women have low magnesium
stores and other nutrients such as
iron, zinc, essential fatty acids,
calcium and vitamin D are often in
short supply.
The reason many women are
deficient in nutrients is that during
their lifetime many will have
children and breastfeed.
Mother Nature makes sure the
baby gets the best of the nutrients
and it’s the mum who gets left high
and dry. This can affect hormone
function and can get even worse
with old age.
So the first thing any woman
going through the menopause
needs to do is to get herself into
good nutritional shape.
It’s also good to do a form of
relaxation, such as meditation or
yoga, because that has been
shown to reduce flushes by 50 to
60 per cent.
And doing some exercise keeps
your metabolism ticking over, which
is important because it slows down
during midlife.
Keeping fit also ensures
endorphins are still being released,
boosting your mood.
Doctors should realise we don’t
want to be fobbed off with HRT or
antidepressants – we want choices.

1MY GIRLS
Alice and I have been
together since we were 18
and she has always been
right behind my cricketing
career, which has been such
a huge help.
When you play sport at
an international level you need
a really strong support network
and I am very lucky to have
such an understanding family.
I love being a dad and when
I’m away I really miss Alice
and the girls but Facetime
and Skype are great for keeping
in touch.
Although Isobel is a bit
young to tell me what she’s
been up to, it is still lovely to
see her smiling face.
People often ask me if I think
Elsie and Isobel will follow me
into cricket but to be honest
they are still so young that it’s
hard to tell where their talents
might lie.
What I want to do is to
encourage them to try as many
different things as possible.
That way they have the
chance to find a passion and to
follow it through.

THINGS I CAN’T
LIVE WITHOUT 5
ALASTAIR COOK, 33, England’s former
cricket captain, lives in Bedfordshire with
his wife Alice, 32, and their daughters
Elsie, four, and 18-month-old Isobel
on a working farm in rural
Bedfordshire. Alice comes from
a farming family and loves
getting stuck in with running
the farm.
I do my bit too and while it’s
hard work, it’s immensely
satisfying.
Being up in the early hours
tagging sheep is so
completely different
to playing cricket
that it takes my
mind off the game.
I think my calm,
country life helps
to give me
perspective on
the pitch.
3 WHATSAPP
RURAL: Alastair lives on a farm
2 THE COUNTRYSIDE
Alice and I share a love of
the countryside and neither of
us would be suited to city life.
Instead we live very happily
to milk cows or shear sheep in
trainers or shoes so when I’m at
home, it’s wellingtons all the
way for me.
I am not
remotely interested
in social media
but I like to keep
my friends and
family close
and the
messaging
service
WhatsApp
is the
perfect
way to keep in touch. It
works anywhere in the
world and is a great tool
for keeping your social life
afloat without having to
spend hours on your
phone.

I’m out there in the

me relatively clean and dry
is a strong, sturdy pair of
wellies.

DRESSING ROOM
When I retire from cricket
one of the things I will miss
more than anything else is the
camaraderie and banter of the
dressing room.
You wouldn’t believe the type
of conversations that go on in
there, they are hilarious and
often absolutely priceless.
The
dressing
room can
be a place
of intense
jubilation,
however it
can be very
sad too,
especially after
an unexpected
defeat or a poor
day out on the
field.
More than
anything
though, it is the
place where
great friendships
are built and where a
group of players really
come together as a team.

EARS ago, when people
still invited me to things,
I went to the opening of
a new restaurant. As I
arrived, the proprietor
gave me a long talk
about how the tables and chairs
had been flown in from Denmark,
the ovens built on-site by experts
from Paris, the cutlery designed,
personally, by a Brazilian craftsman.
The one thing he didn’t mention
was the food, perhaps because it
was mediocre, or perhaps because
he just didn’t understand what the
point of a restaurant was. I felt the
same, sometimes, watching

Neanderthal research and a sparky,
witty presence on screen (she
moonlights as a stand-up comic).
Her mission in this two-part
series is to shake off the clichés and
misperceptions from our vanished
ancestors. The Neanderthals did
not, in fact, vanish, they’re still
lurking in 2 per cent of our DNA.
With all that modern tech can offer,
the picture of these “other humans”
is changing all the time. Their
bones suggest they were nimble,
not knuckle-draggers. The size and
shape of their skulls suggests they
could plan, dream and think.
In one dazzling meeting of fossil
remains and computer magic, we
heard what sounds a Neanderthals
might have been able to make.
From possible examples of cave
art, to ritual costumes and
sophisticated glue-making
technology, the Neanderthals were
plainly brighter than they looked.
Then again, we don’t really know
what they looked like. Sadly this
programme devotes rather too
much energy to that side of things.
Actor Andy Serkis and a squad of

Lee Ingleby is best known for his roles

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of
Azkaban but here he plays a
decidedly different part as David
Collins, a man who is unexpectedly
acquitted, on a technicality, having
served seven years of a life sentence
for the murder of his wife Tara. On
the steps of the court, he vows to
bring to book those who lied at his
original trial, to see the real killer jailed

But it won’t be an easy task. Tara’s

BURMA WITH SIMON REEVE
(Sunday, BBC 2) was a cleverly
structured bit of film-making, set
up to hit us hard at the end. Simon
began in Yangon, fast becoming a
modern metropolis for the new
‘democratic’ country, the eerie gold
cone of the Shwedagon Pagoda
seeming to cast light and peace
over the whole place.
Moving northwards, he took in an
event that was part ritual, partknees-up, hosted by cross-dressing
shamans, and saw how, in schools
and health centres, Burma’s monks
still provide a vital safety net. The
turning point was a monastery run
by an apparently banned group,
called “The Committee To Protect
Race and Religion”. Even
Buddhism nurtures extremists and
these monks were preaching hatred
towards the country’s Muslims. The
consequences of that hatred soon
became clear. The degradation of
the world’s largest refugee camp,
just over the border in Bangladesh.
An orphan, one among hundreds
of thousands of Rohingya Muslims
who’d fled persecution in Burma,
afraid of Reeve’s cameras because
he thought they were guns. A
distraught woman, searching for
the baby she’d lost as she crossed
to safety. Wherever he goes, Reeve
is far from a neutral presence.
In Burma, however, he really let
rip. Where was Aung San Suu Kyi
in all this? Doing nothing to
prevent the massacres. Preventing
observers from coming in. The
Nobel Peace Prize winner, hailed
as an “Asian Nelson Mandela” by
the West. To quote our presenter,
“That was a b- mistake, wasn’t it?”

Clambering up the rope

Rupert tells him all about
the treasure. “The Ogre can
never get at it through that
crevice in the rock,” says
Rupert. “Now I’m going to
find out what is at the top
of this rope.” Quickly he
climbs upwards, and finds
himself in a little round

So Rupert starts the rope to ascend,

Chickpea pie
This pie is packed with vegetables and chickpeas cooked in red wine with tomatoes
and Italian herbs, with a Parmesan and tomato mash topping. Serves 6.
INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 onions, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 courgettes, sliced
2 cans chickpeas, 410g each, drained
2 cans chopped tomatoes
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato paste
150ml red wine
2 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
Salt and pepper
1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
4 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
1 egg
50g Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
50g sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
METHOD
1) Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large pan,
add the onions, celery, red pepper and garlic,
and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the courgettes,
chickpeas, tomatoes with their juice, tomato
paste, wine and dried herbs. Season to taste
with salt and pepper.
2) Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Increase the heat for the
last 15 minutes to thicken the liquid slightly.
3) Meanwhile, to make the Parmesan and
tomato mash, boil the potatoes until soft.
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan assisted,
gas mark 6. Then drain and mash the potatoes
with milk and the remaining oil.
4) Beat in the egg, Parmesan cheese,
sun-dried tomatoes, chopped basil and salt
and pepper to taste.
5) Spoon the vegetable mixture into an
ovenproof dish. Top with the Parmesan mash,
covering the vegetables completely.
6) Bake for 25 minutes or until the potato
topping is nicely browned. Serve hot.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Sow seeds of winter-flowering pansies in pots on a cool, shady
windowsill indoors. Prick the seedlings out into pots when big enough and keep them in an
open-topped north-facing cold frame. By autumn they’ll be ready to repot for winter.

Face-to-face spending falls again following weak March What the
SPENDING by households on the
high street saw its biggest annual
fall for six years in April, according
to an index.
Face-to-face spending fell by
5.4 per cent year-on-year, accelerating from a 2.9 per cent drop in March,
according to the Visa UK Consumer
Spending Index – which said the
high street remains a “key source of
weakness”. Online spending also
dipped, by 0.1 per cent – a gentler
decline than the 1.1 per cent fall seen
in March.
Visa said that overall, spending
fell by 2 per cent annually in April,
matching a decrease in March.
Consumer spending has now fallen
in 11 of the past 12 months, with the
index suggesting that 2018 is on
track for its worst performance since
2012. The index uses spending on
Visa cards as a base and adjusts the
figures to reflect all consumer spending, not just that on cards.
Annabel Fiddes, principal economist at IHS Markit, which compiles
the report, said: “Consumer spending remained relatively weak in April,
with no signs of a bounce-back from
March when the drop in spend was
likely exacerbated by adverse
weather. Notably, the high street
The brains behind ping-pong bar
Bounce and mini-golf club Puttshack
has set his sights on revamping the
traditional bingo hall, putting Social
Entertainment Ventures on track for
fresh investment and a US initial
­public offering.
Founder Adam Breeden is keeping
the details secret, but says his version
of the British favourite – called
HiJingo! – will be
like “Who Wants To
Be A Millionaire,
X Factor and a
rock concert”.
He claims older,
more traditional
bingo halls are not
harnessing their
potential.
Mr Breeden said: “We are in the
process of developing technology
which runs the bingo, but also choreographs the way the venue sort of
pulsates with the emotional flow of
the experience of playing bingo.”
Part of that excitement lies in the
winnings, and Social Entertainment
Ventures (SEV) is hoping to clinch
partnerships that will help the company dole out weekend tickets to Paris
or flights to New York, alongside
“phenomenal monetary prizes”.
Breeden says SEV will launch three
venues in the first 12 months of
­t rading, with the first in London.
Other sites are being scouted in UK
cities. Four more HiJingo! locations
are expected to be running by 2021, at

It would mark notable growth for
the business, with SEV having booked
£13.3million in revenues in 2017 and
£700,000 in underlying earnings.
Mr Breeden also

“We’re constantly

by people who

“We are running a fundraise towards
the end of the year, so that will probably be an institutional raise but it
could be an ultra high net worth as
well – we just have various options.”
SEV’s growth is also putting it on
track for an initial public offering
(IPO) within the next few years.
“Our plan is to own the whole social
entertainment, competitive socialising space in the UK and the US, with a
view to float on the US stock market
in four to five years,” Mr Bredden said.
However, London has not been ruled
out for its pending IPO.
He added: “It could be in the UK,
but we see the predominant size of
our growth happening the US.”

Workers hit by ‘always on’ culture
Most people are falling victim to
the “always on” work culture,
­c onstantly checking emails and
phone calls in their supposed free
time, a new study shows.
A survey of 1,200 UK workers by
jobs site CV-Library found that
almost three out of four dealt
with work-related emails or phone
calls in the evenings and at
­weekends.
Many admitted that constantly
dealing with work issues led to
increased levels of stress, affected
their sleep and resulted in less
time for hobbies or being with
their family.
Most of those questioned said
mobile phones and other devices
were “blurring the lines” between
personal and work lives.
CV-Library’s Lee Biggins said:
“It is concerning to learn that such
a large percentage of UK
professionals are continuing to
work outside their contracted
hours. While technology has
opened us up to a world of opportunities, it also makes it all too
easy to access emails from home.
“If you are guilty of putting in
extra hours, it could be time to
take a step back and reflect on
how this is impacting on your life
so you can make some positive
changes.”
++the share hunter++GEORGE SALMON++HARGREAVES LANSDOWN++
THERE were three big announcements
from BT on Thursday.
Full year results were underwhelming.
Progress at EE and the consumer-facing
divisions was more than offset by lower
profits elsewhere. This meant underlying
revenue was down 1 per cent to
£23.7billion, with profits falling 2 per cent
to £7.5billion.
BT also confirmed thousands of job
losses in a £1.5billion cost-saving drive
and outlined the need to allocate billions
to plugging its £11.3billion pension deficit.
For income-seeking investors, there
GEORGE SALMON was disappointment on the dividend. The
final payout of 10.55p per share brought

from 2016/17. BT says it intends to hold
www.hl.co.uk
Weak signals at BT as dividend held flat
the dividend flat for the next two years. Up
to these results, the policy had been to
pay more each year. A combination of the
above meant the shares fell sharply.
CEO Gavin Patterson has a plan and
investors will be hoping the group
emerges from the upheaval as a leaner,
more joined up business.
Its focus will be two-fold. Running the
attractive consumer-facing services we all
recognise as BT, and also operating the
infrastructure behind the digital and
communication-led economy we all want.
The consumer-facing businesses are
keeping their side of the bargain. The
group is starting to successfully bundle
TV, internet and mobile contracts together,
and profits are duly rising. It’s the second
part where we’ve had a few false starts.
There’s constant pressure to roll out
more high speed internet and drive prices
down. That’s great for the consumer, but
BT is the one footing the bill. We’re also
seeing the business-to-business division
struggle, with public sector revenues
falling away. Some of the problems are of
its own making, too. Misdemeanours at
Openreach (essentially BT unfairly
delaying ethernet installations) have led to
fines. All this means the dividend is
unlikely to grow in the near future,
although a lower share price has pushed
the yield on offer up to close to 7 per cent.
That could prove attractive – after all, a
company as integral as BT should be able
to recover its footing in time. It might just
take longer than investors would like.

JONNY BAIRSTOW
advertised his form
with the bat ahead
of tomorrow’s
Test squad
announcement.
A rapid 95 from 94
balls for Yorkshire
against Surrey at
the Oval may not
have been enough to
save the White Rose,
who were sliding
towards defeat.
But his runs look
timely for new head
selector Ed Smith,
who is believed to be
eager to promote
Bairstow up the
order.
Bairstow, who can
be wasted batting at
No7 for England, is
keen to keep the
dual role as
wicketkeeperbatsman.
But Surrey’s Ben
Foakes is rated a
better gloveman and
Smith may feel
moving the
Yorkshireman to
No5 would better
utilise his strengths.
Smith unveils his
first Test squad for
the series opener
against Pakistan
with Middlesex’s
Nick Gubbins
pushing for
inclusion at Mark
Stoneman’s expense.
Mark Wood is
expected to retain
his place after an
early return from
the Indian Premier
League.

By Alasdair Fotheringham
SIMON YATES timed his final
sprint to perfection to claim
victory in the ninth stage of the
Giro d’Italia and extend his
lead in the overall classification.
The 25-year-old Briton
stormed past his rivals near the
summit of Gran Sasso d’Italia
to finish ahead of Frenchman
Thibaut Pinot (GroupamaFDJ) and his Mitchelton-Scott
team-mate Esteban Chaves.
Yates now has a 32-second
lead over Chaves in the overall
standings, with defending
champion Tom Dumoulin
38 seconds back.
He has held the race leader’s
Pink Jersey since stage six,
when he finished second
behind Chaves on the slopes of
Mount Etna.
It was another difficult day
for four-time Tour de France
champion Chris Froome, who
failed to hang on to a
five-strong breakaway group
two kilometres from the finish,
sliding out of the overall top 10
as a result and losing more than
a minute on Yates. The Team
Sky rider is now two minutes

Team Sky sporting
director Nicolas Portal
said: “It’s not perfect.
Chris was looking good the
last couple of days but
we have to stay
optimistic.
“We have two more
weeks coming up
and hopefully we will
have some better
days.”
After recording
his first stage win
at this year’s Giro,
Yates thanked his
team-mates who

JONATHAN REA equalled Carl Fogarty’s record of race wins
at Imola yesterday as he powered to his 59th series victory
in the Superbike World Championship.
The Northern Irishman also smashed the record for double
wins as he took his total to 17. “I can’t believe this. I am so
happy,” he said.

the boys who have been riding
on the front all day – they’ve
had a couple of tough days,
always riding on the front on
some really long stages,” he
said.
“From the beginning of the

that if we kept the break
close enough then it might
be possible to go for the
victory.
“It was a very difficult
day. Chris crashed

he was affected by

BOXING
HUGHIE FURY is
eyeing world title
glory after he
landed the British
heavyweight belt on
Saturday night.
The Manchesterborn fighter stopped
defending champion
Sam Sexton in five
rounds at Bolton’s
Macron Stadium.
In doing so,
23-year-old Fury
buried the
disappointment of
his loss to Joseph
Parker for the WBO
title last September.
Now he wants a
crack at WBA, IBF
and WBO champion
Anthony Joshua or
WBC king Deontay
Wilder.
“I’ve wanted to be
a world champion
since I was a kid,”
said Fury, whose
cousin is former
world champion
Tyson Fury.
In just his 12th
professional bout,
Vasyl Lomachenko
became the fastest
fighter in history to
win world titles in
three weights.
The Ukrainian
stopped Venezuelan
Jorge Linares in the
10th round despite
being floored in the
sixth to claim the
WBA lightweight
title in New York.
He had previously
won titles at
featherweight and
super-featherweight.

RUGBY UNION: CHAMPIONS CUP FINAL

CHAMPIONS AGAIN:
Leinster celebrate
their win in Spain
ANOTHER day, another
medal for James Ryan, the
man who just cannot lose.
The Leinster and Ireland tyro
awoke yesterday back in Dublin
with a Champions Cup medal to go
alongside his Six Nations Grand
Slam gong, and just for good
measure there was a man-of-thematch award too from the San
Mames Stadium.
The player nicknamed ‘Cheese’,
whose energy dragged Leinster over
the line after Racing had pushed
them all the way in a slog of a final
which struggled to distract the
locals from their pelota and pintxos,
has yet to lose in 21 games as a
player for province and country.
The records of Jordan Larmour
and Dan Leavy, his team-mates, are
scarcely less incredible. If it was the
30-somethings Johnny Sexton and
Isa Nacewa who kicked the points,
it was the kids who had the energy.
Leinster
will
mark
their
achievement in drawing alongside
Toulouse as the most successful
team in European history with four
titles by adding a fourth star to their
jersey. By the time Ryan is done, the

shirt could resemble a firework
display. “You have to have a dream
and a plan and the plan is to put
a lot of stars on the shirt,” said
Leinster prop Cian Healy.
“Not four, not five – I want to see
Leinster grow and be dominant in
Europe for years. The crop that are
coming through will hopefully be
doing that long after I’m gone.
“We’ve got to tame them a bit,
but with the likes of ‘Cheese’ being
21 and 0, the expectations have to
be high. When you see him step up
to the plate it’s jaw-dropping – it’s a
case of, ‘Hold on a second, he doesn’t
look like he can do what he’s doing’.
“Eventually he’ll lose a game but
we’ll pick him up and dust him
off and send him out again.”
‘Cheese’ is an abbreviation of
‘Big Cheese’, which Leavy claims
playfully is how Ryan refers to
himself. The truth is more prosaic.
The 21-year-old was handed it by
a Leinster team-mate because of his
resemblance to a straight-laced
paper industry businessman – Ned
‘Big Cheese’ Fleming, played by
Bryan Cranston – in the supposed
comedy ‘Why Him?’
Ryan and the other Leinster
young guns have their feet firmly on
the ground but at the same time are
given the freedom to fly – and how
they have done so this season.
“I find if there’s a hierarchy, guys
don’t get to express themselves. If
they’re told they’re young
and not good enough,
they’ll think it. They
flourish when they

THREE THINGS WE LEARNT IN EUROPE THIS SEASON
1. English clubs are off the
pace
With no semi-finalists in the
Champions Cup and not even a
Challenge Cup as a consolation
prize after Cardiff Blues’ heroic
fightback stunned Gloucester on
Friday night, English rugby’s
miserable season was complete.
The irony is that the all-round
strength of the Premiership is a
factor in its failure. Where
Leinster were able to rest key
players on some Pro14 weekends,
and indeed were instructed to do
so by the IRFU, there were no
such luxuries in England.
2. Bilbao was a success
– up to a point
Northern Spain was a left-field
choice for the finals weekend
but with a combined crowd of
85,000 for the two games at
the superb San Mames Stadium
– the gleaming, atmospheric
home to Athletic Bilbao – it
worked.
The problem was getting there
without having to sell a vital
organ to foot the bill. Newcastle
next year will be under close
scrutiny to ensure the
profiteering is kept to acceptable
levels.
3. Europe needs a
title sponsor
When
hen the Champions Cup
was born out of the ashes of the
Heineken Cup four years ago, it
did so with grandiose dreams of a
raft sponsors bringing in untold
riches like football’s Champions
League. It hasn’t happened.
Heineken
eineken and Turkish Airlines
are the only two on board and
that is likely to reduce to one
when the latter’s deal expires
this summer. The Champions Cup
will never be an equivalent to the
Champions League, so time to
stop pretending it is.
are given an opportunity. The young
guys have confidence, not arrogance,
which is a good way to be,” said
Leinster prop Jack McGrath.
The Irish seem to have mastered
the art of fast-tracking talent. They
have an excellent schools system
but they also hothouse it better
than any of their rivals in Europe.
“When these young guys like
Dan Leavy and James Ryan
come through they need to learn
pretty quickly and be coached
pretty well. We’re very lucky as
players with the group of coaches
we work with at international and
provincial level,” said Sexton.
Leo Cullen, the first man to win
European Cups as both player and
coach, has provided a calming lead
for Leinster but, to a man, the
team identify Stuart Lancaster
as the missing piece in the
jigsaw.
Sexton’s text message to
Lancaster 20 months ago,
asking him what he could
do to persuade him to
become their senior coach
– sent at a time when
Lancaster was persona
non-grata in England after
the World Cup flop – may one
day be printed out and put
on display in the Leinster
rugby museum.
Sexton said: “When
we played against
England with him
as
coach
we
struggled.
They
were really hard to
defend against and
really hard to attack.
He obviously played
a big part in that.
“I
thought
he
was an outstanding
coach. I spoke to a
few English guys, the
Farrells mainly, and
they spoke very highly
of him. That’s why I
texted him. What a
special coach.”

SOUTH AFRICA fly-half Pat
Lambie will miss next month’s
Test series against England
after confirming he suffered
serious knee ligament damage
in the Champions Cup final.
The Racing playmaker,
below, who had been in line
for a Springboks recall after
being approached by new
coach Rassie Erasmus about
a return to the set-up, will be
sidelined for the rest of the
year. “The speculation is that
I have done my ACL ligament,
that is six to nine months, I
guess,” said the 27-year-old,
who has won 56 caps.
“To go to the next World
Cup is right at the top of my
wishlist. I just need to get
fully recovered before I can
give it a crack again.”
The Boks are already
resigned to being without
hooker Malcolm Marx, who
has a groin problem, for the
start of the series and the
one-off Test against Wales in
Washington that
precedes it.
England begin
preparations
for the tour
this week
with a
training camp
in Brighton,
although those
players involved in
this weekend’s
Premiership semi-finals are
not involved.
There may be some tension
within the England
management after revelations
over the weekend that
defence coach Paul Gustard
has applied, and been
interviewed, for the vacant
Harlequins head coach’s job.
The departure of a senior
coach with the World Cup only
16 months away would point
to tensions within the set-up.
Last week, head coach
Eddie Jones came clean on
splits within the squad that
had opened up during the run
of defeats in the Six Nations.
Wales will also be waiting
on the Harlequins
appointment with their
long-serving defence coach
Shaun Edwards having been
interviewed. They could be
without Josh Navidi for the
Springboks Test and the
Argentina series that follows
after the flanker dislocated
his shoulder in Cardiff Blues’
Challenge Cup final win over
Gloucester on Friday night.

A MOMENT of madness by
Andrew Dixon wrecked
Toronto’s big day out as
Warrington destroyed the
shockingly
ill-disciplined
Canadian outfit to seal a
quarter-final home date
with Wigan.
Second rower Dixon became
embroiled in a confrontation with
Harvey Livett, threw a punch at
the Warrington man and was
shown a red card by referee Ben
Thaler.
The incident came in the 38th
minute with Toronto 10-6 ahead
and with the scent of a famous
victory in their nostrils, but it
proved to be a killer blow for
Dixon’s team.
Josh Charnley scampered over
to put Warrington ahead on the
stroke of half-time and from there
it was one-way traffic as the hosts
ran in 10 more tries during a
horribly one-sided second half.
Dixon’s
dismissal
was
compounded by three yellow cards
for the Wolfpack, whose discipline
was straight from a “pub league”
according to Warrington prop
Chris Hill.
Liam Kay was sin-binned in the
28th minute for a dangerous throw
and Josh McCrone and Darcy
Lussick followed suit for dissent in
the second half.
Toronto were only formed last
year and won promotion from the
third tier at the first attempt, with
their goal this season being to
reach the Super League.
But head coach Paul Rowley
said: “We were our own worst
enemies and our discipline has to
be better. We deserved to be in
front during the first half and were
dominant in every aspect, although
it was a very tight game.
“It looked like two evenly
matched sides but the second half
was a total contrast and you can’t

play with three men in the bin and
one red card against a team like
Warrington.
“Livett started the scuffle and
Dixon wrongly punches out and
gets a red card. It was poor from
our part and we are responsible
for our own discipline. We accept
responsibility for not being good
enough in that regard and how we
dealt with certain situations. We
should have been better.”
On allegations that Jacob
Emmitt was bitten by a Warrington
player, Rowley added: “I’ve not had
the chance to chat with him yet,
but it seemed that way to me.”
The
Wolfpack
went
into
yesterday’s game on the back of 11
straight wins but their discipline
was appalling in front of a live
television audience in the UK and
Canada.
Rowley, who saw winger Adam
Higson taken off with concussion
and a suspected broken collarbone,
said: “Today certainly doesn’t
enhance our reputation. I just
hope the viewers got drunk during

the second half and didn’t notice
it. The second half was shambolic
and I wasn’t impressed.”
For Warrington, things really are
looking up after a shaky start to
life under new coach Steve Price.
The Australian arrived during the
winter to replace Tony Smith and
has now presided over 10
successive victories.
Tries from Higson and Kay
inside the opening 15 minutes
were just reward for Toronto’s
early vibrancy. Yet Warrington
gradually clicked into gear and
Mike Cooper touched down before
Charnley added a second shortly
after Dixon’s red card.
The second half was almost
farcical as Warrington ran amok,
touching down through Livett,
Ben Murdoch-Masila (2), Jack
Hughes, Ben Westwood, Tom
Lineham (3), Charnley and Tyrone
Roberts.
Two of the scores came when
Toronto were down to 10 men after
skipper McCrone and prop Lussick
had been yellow-carded.
Price said: “I was disappointed
with our first half because we fell
into their trap of falling down to
their level – the game was slow and
it was like watching Lord Of The
Rings. But we addressed that at
half-time and played some really
good footie in the second half.
“Playing Wigan in the quarterfinals should be a cracker. WiganWarrington are always brutal
games and hopefully we can get a
full house.”
❑CASTLEFORD could be in hot
water with the Rugby Football
League after criticising referee
James Child during Saturday’s
36-18 home defeat by St Helens.
A post made during the game
from the club’s official Twitter
account said: “The ref making the
rules up as he goes along.”
The tweet was soon deleted but
RFL bosses are aware of it and
may take action.

JUBILANT Shrewsbury fans staged
a mass pitch invasion after sealing a
second trip to Wembley this season
after overcoming Charlton to reach
the League One play-off final.
Carlton Morris’s 58th-minute goal
was enough to send the Shrews
through, and they will be hoping for
better luck after losing the
Checkatrade Trophy final against
Lincoln last month.
Manager Paul Hurst said: “I’m
delighted and there were some
great scenes at the end.
“I stayed on the pitch and one
fan gave me a kiss. I turned to
the side and he wanted to give
me another one. I wasn’t overly
keen!”
Charlton caretaker
manager Lee Bowyer
said: “Were
Shrewsbury the
better side over
two legs? I don’t
think so.
“I’d like to
stay but I’m
not in
control of
that
decision. If
I’m going to
stay then it will
be as manager,
because if not, I won’t
be staying.”

goal that took his side to Wembley
last time, slammed home first time
from Shaun Whalley’s cutback.
The goal sparked angry scenes
after Shrews fans ran on the
pitch and Charlton supporters
rushed to try to confront
them.
They had to be held back
by police and stewards and
there were allegations on

CAMERON McGEEHAN spared a thought for former Scunthorpe
manager Graham Alexander, surprisingly sacked by the club two
months ago, after his late equaliser left their League One semi-final finely
balanced against Rotherham at 2-2.
The on-loan Barnsley midfielder scored his first goal since signing in
January for Alexander, who made way for interim boss Nick Daws with
Scunthorpe in fifth place but suffering a dramatic loss of form.
“Obviously I thought it was harsh and unfair but he did a great job
during the spell he was here,” said McGeehan. “He’s a very good manager
and that’s part of the reason that attracted me to come here.
“I thought I’d do well with him and learn a lot. But sometimes it just
doesn’t work out, it was nothing personal.
“Graham did a great job to get us into position and Dawsy will helpfully
get us over the line because we’ve been in excellent form since he took over.”
IAN WHITTELL
Davies at risk of
ban for stamping
TOM DAVIES faces a nervous wait
to find out if he will be banned for
Coventry’s biggest game of the
season after being caught in a
stamping row.
Davies, above, has apologised after
being spotted on camera standing on
Notts County captain Richard
Duffy’s shin during the
heated 1-1 play-off semifinal first-leg draw on
Saturday.
Duffy has revealed Davies
said sorry to him over the
incident, claiming it was an
accident. But he could still be
banned for Friday’s second leg
at Meadow Lane if the FA
decide to look at the footage,
with referee Gavin Ward having
missed the incident.
Wales centre-back Duffy said: “I
felt some studs on me but I spoke to
him later in the game and he
apologised and said he didn’t mean
it. I’ll take his word for it. I wouldn’t
be calling on him being banned or
anything like that. That’s not me.”
Jonathan Forte’s sublime
backheeled drag-back, from Dan
Jones’ cross, looked as if it would
give County boss Kevin Nolan a lead
to take back to Meadow Lane.
But Coventry’s Marc McNulty
scored his 27th goal of the season
with a late penalty, wrongly given by
Ward after Matt Tootle had
clearly knocked the ball
away in challenging Tom
Bayliss.
“It’s not a penalty,” Duffy
said. “It’s a joke, really.”
Striker Matt Rhead says
that Lincoln will revel in their
underdog status as they head
to Exeter on Thursday. The
Imps need to win the second leg of
their semi-final after Saturday’s
goalless first leg at Sincil Bank.
Danny Cowley’s side are aiming for
a second successive promotion to go
with their Checkatrade Trophy
triumph over Shrewsbury at Wembley.
“When the big games have come
along, we’ve turned up and put big
performances in,” said Rhead.

FOOTBALL: VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE PLAY-OFF FINAL
Lords of the manor

WHEN
Tranmere
hero James Norwood
finished
chatting
about his matchwinning exploits, I
asked if we should
bow. “Peasants,” he
replied. That was fair
enough. After all,
he is Lord of Hougan
Manor in Cumbria.
TASTES GOOD:
Norwood (front)

his team-mates
As if this National League
play-off final needed any
more twists to its story.
First the Wembley facts.
With
stoppage-time
included, the match lasted
103 minutes, during which
Tranmere played for 102
minutes and 12 seconds with
10 men after the dismissal
of Liam Ridehalgh for a
reckless challenge on Ricky
Shakes before most players
had touched the ball.
Five minutes later Andy
Cook headed Tranmere in
front, sparking celebrations
which saw team-mate Josh
Ginnelly hit on the head by
a bottle thrown from the
crowd.
Boreham Wood could not
make their man advantage
pay until deep into firsthalf stoppage-time when

second half drifted towards

glanced home an 80thminute goal to send
Tranmere back into the
Football League after a
three-year absence.
Norwood arrived to meet
the press with a package of
24 beers. “I took a time out
to sit on the
field
and
watch the lads
celebrate,” he
said. “I started
crying. When
I signed, it
was all about
promotion.
When
other
lads signed, it
was all about promotion.
We thought we could do it
last year but we fell at the
last hurdle. We just put
everything into this game.
It has not quite sunk in.”
A senior career which
started at hometown club
Eastbourne a decade ago
and has seen him journey
through Exeter, Sutton and
Forest Green Rovers now
sees Norwood in League
Two and in a rare position.
He has a title to his
name, even if it was only
for a bit of fun. He said: “I
was in Pizza Express with
five of my mates for a

he got upgraded on a train
or a plane for being a Lord.
“I asked him how that
came it about. He said he
just bought it for 35 quid!
“Before
the
starters
came out I went online and
bought myself a plot, one
metre of land up north,
and became a Lord. I
bought one for my dad too.
I haven’t used
it. I’m too
embarrassed.
“My dad will
use it. I think I
can put it on
my passport
and
driver’s
licence but I
couldn’t. I’ve
never been to
the land. It’s difficult to
find, in protected land. I
was thinking of building a
skyscraper on it.”
Amid the laughter, the

Being back in League
Two means a brighter
future for Tranmere – no

final whistle. “You have to
make sure you enjoy these
moments because football
can be tough,” said Mellon,
12 months after his side
were beaten here by Forest
Green Rovers.
“We have suffered. We
have lost our academy, we
have lost so many members
of staff because we had to
make cuts.
“We have always had a
strong youth at Tranmere
but we were losing that
because no one fancied,
with due respect, coming
to what we call ‘nonLeague’ because the local
talent wanted to go to the
League clubs.
“That will change now.
We will be able to compete
again for the young talent.
“Around the club people
lost their jobs because we
lost the Football League
funding. That is the reality
of the game.”
At 32, Boreham Wood’s
Luke Garrard is one of the
youngest managers in all
levels of the football
pyramid and he has steered
the club to its highest
finish, fourth.
They will be back. But
this time it was someone
else’s turn to be the lords
of Wembley.

failure to keep their

AFTER 1,235 matches,
17 trophies and countless
debates
as
to
his
suitability to manage the
club he has grown to love,
Arsene Wenger’s reign as
Arsenal manager is over.
Greeted onto the pitch here
by a guard of honour before
heading towards the travelling
supporters to take his final bow,
Wenger saw his team record the
707th, and final, win of his
tenure. This was his day, and
for the first time away from
home in 2018 his team won.
In the skies above the John
Smith’s Stadium a banner read
‘Merci Arsene. We’ll miss you
too’. Whether it was the same
plane as the one involved in a
similar stunt at West Brom
calling for his head last season
is unknown, but in time it seems
all will be forgiven.
“They had the wrong banner
today!” Wenger joked. “I know
that we’ve disappointed the
away fans this season. We had
disagreements but we had one
thing in common: we love
Arsenal Football Club and I
wanted to share that with them
today.”
Such was Wenger’s desire to
embrace his final act that he
spent almost an hour before
the match sat in the away
dugout, leaving only occasionally
to sign a few autographs.
His entrance ahead of kickoff was far grander, but it was
clear the man himself was keen
just to take in a game as a
manager on these shores
for one final time.
In truth, this was
not only Wenger’s
party. In scenes
more akin to a side
who had won the
title rather than
finishing near the
relegation zone,
Huddersfield’s
supporters were
determined to
celebrate their
survival. David
Wagner sent
them out to
play with far
more freedom
than in previous
outings against
the top six.
Wenger stayed
in his dugout,
appearing
just
once in the first half
as the crowd rose
as one in the 22nd
minute to mark the
number of years he has
spent in charge.
Whether it was the sight
of their departing manager
or not, from there Arsenal

Huddersfield clipped the
crossbar late on but the real
drama was again in the skies,
with a banner reading ‘Kroenke

Wenger’s eventual departure
was as low key as the match he
had watched – forced to scarper
down the tunnel as a few
hundred
home
supporters
invaded the playing area. As a
manager who has rarely craved
the limelight, perhaps that is
how he would have wanted it.

chairman Daniel Levy
he needs to take more
risks in crunch talks
that could decide the
future direction of the
club.
A crazy win at Wembley kept
up Pochettino’s record of
always finishing in the top
three – a feat Spurs had never
previously achieved in the
Premier League.
However, if the fans want to
go a stage further and start
winning the major honours
they crave, Pochettino says
that Levy has to move his
‘project’ on by being willing to
invest more in the team.
“We need to talk a lot between
us,” he said. “I know what we
need to do, our targets, but it
is whether the chairman
agrees with me.
“Sometimes I get crazy ideas,
in this type of situation and
with our unbelievable fans.
But we need to take risks.
“If we want to win the big

said: “I can’t quite say

His Everton team did
not help Allardyce’s
cause against the

“We are a bit disappointed

small amounts of money.
“We need to think about
reality. We need to feel that we
are a special club; we need to
create that. But at the same
time we need to be on the

“Next season, it will be

had turned away from
Michael Keane, but it

publicly, part of Pochettino’s
frustration is that some of the
biggest pieces in the jigsaw are
already in place.
In Harry Kane he has the
world-class talisman he would
need to drag the club to the
next level. He may not have
won the Golden Boot, but with
his two goals, Kane showed
going into the World Cup that
he is still the daddy.
His winner should lift

WILFRIED ZAHA has
handed Roy Hodgson a
major boost by saying
he has no intention of
leaving Crystal Palace
in the summer.
The winger, who set
Palace on course for
victory with the
opening goal, has been
linked with a move
from Selhurst Park with
champions Manchester
City leading the clubs
eyeing the Ivorian.
But Zaha, 25, says he
is happy to stay after
helping the Eagles to
an 11th-place finish.
“You can see how
much I’m enjoying my
football,” he said. “This
is my home and there’s
no reason to leave.”
Zaha’s commitment
was just what Hodgson
wanted to hear as he
set out his plans for
Palace to build on this
season’s progress.
The former England
manager oversaw a
remarkable turnaround
after Palace had been
cut adrift with no points
and no goals from their
first seven matches.
Hodgson could
reflect on a job well
done after a
comfortable win over
relegated West Brom,

Hodgson. “It must have
been hard motivating
us after the losses, and
people thinking we were
going to be relegated.
Credit to him for
believing in us,” he said.
But Hodgson knows
the building blocks for
next season must now
be put in place. “I hope
we get reinforcements
but it will be exciting
to keep the bulk of this
team together,” he
said. “We need a clear
idea of where we want
this club to go.”

BROKEN RECORD: Salah’s strike set a new mark
No show like
Mo show for
top-four Reds
IT MIGHT seem odd
to talk about a return
to form given the way
Mohamed Salah has
torn up record after
record this season.
Yet if a further
measure of his
astonishing season was
needed it came with an
opening goal yesterday,
which brought not only
the top-four finish
Liverpool deserved but
relief his campaign had
not gone cold at the
most important
moment.
Three matches
without a goal was as
barren a spell as the
Egyptian had endured
in a season in which he
has scored 44 goals in
all competitions. But
with the Champions
League final against
Real Madrid in Kiev in
a fortnight, evidence he
remains in form
capped a perfect
afternoon for Jurgen
Klopp and his men.
Salah’s latest strike
just after the half-hour
opened the floodgates
for a victory as
comfortable as any this
season, with four goals
unanswered by a
Brighton side who were
simply blown away.
The goal was the
32nd of the Premier
League campaign,
enough to secure the
golden boot and
eclipse the previous
record of 31, jointly
held by Cristiano
Ronaldo, Luis Suarez
and Alan Shearer.
After Dejan Lovren
had made it 2-0 by
half-time, Salah
provided an assist for a
Dominic Solanke’s first
goal for the club before
Andy Robertson added
a late fourth.
Liverpool could have
had eight – there were
two clearances off the
line, several fine saves
from Mat Ryan in the
Brighton goal and at
least three golden
opportunities spurned.
Klopp, who had shown

signs of frustration a
top-four place had not
been secured, spent his
afternoon barking
angrily at his players.
At 3-0 he discovered
Newcastle were leading
Chelsea 3-0 and it was
only then he relaxed.
“They were the first
minutes in the season I
could enjoy,” he said.
His enjoyment was
doubled by the fact all
came back safe and
sound. James Milner
was the only injury
absentee, expected to
be training again soon.
If Milner has been
the tireless workhorse
this season, Salah has
been the emblem for
Liverpool’s progress.
Yet Klopp admitted
the last few weeks had
been his most testing.
“Everyone gives you
an award for this and
award for that, for
getting out of the car
without an accident,”
he said. “It is really
difficult to stay focused
but he was focused.”
Liverpool will now
board the plane to
Kiev not having to win
to secure next season’s
Champions League
spot and with no
question marks about
belonging.
“It is a fantastic
achievement,” said
Klopp. “I am really
happy and proud for
the boys. Now we have
two weeks to prepare
for another big game.”

THEY left it to their last
kick of an extraordinary
campaign to put the
icing on the cake of a
season that will be
talked about for years
to come.
It was the 94th minute
at St Mary’s when Kevin
De
Bruyne
lifted
the
ball
over
a
tiring Southampton
defence and on to
it raced Gabriel
Jesus.
He
propelled
his shot over the
onrushing
Alex
McCarthy
and
into the back of
the net.
The title was
already won and a
host of records
had already set by
this
astonishing
Manchester
City
side.
But that goal, a
Premier League record
106th of the season, saw
manager Pep Guardiola
and all his staff sprint on to
the pitch celebrating, and his
players, including goalkeeper
Claudio Bravo from the other
end of the field, race to their
fans to cavort in delight.
They all knew what the goal
meant.
It meant 100 points reached
for the first time in Premier
League history and it meant
City were the first side to
record 32 wins in a season
since Tottenham in 1961.
City had notched the most
goals in a Premier League
season, a record goal difference
with a quite astonishing +79,
the most away wins and a
record margin between them
and the second-placed team in
the table.
The list went on and put this
side on a par with the Arsenal
Invincibles of 2004 and the
Manchester United
Treble winners of
1999. And it came

that historic goal.
Hughes trudges away
exactly six years to the day
since Sergio Aguero scored the
goal that won City the Premier
League title for the first time in
the modern era, an injury-time
strike against Queens Park
Rangers.
“One hundred points. Still
I cannot believe it. It’s a
massive achievement,” said
Guardiola.
“The game was complicated,
the opponent so strong, and
our rhythm was not
so high. And in our minds it’s
already over.
“But we were focused and, at
the end, an excellent pass from
Kevin and amazing finish from
Gabriel made the difference
and achieved that record.
“One hundred points is a lot,
and it shows how stable we
were all season.
“The numbers are always a
consequence of the way we
play. You cannot achieve 100
points if you drop games. We
have finished the way we
deserved to finish. But of
course we can improve next
season. You can always improve
individual players.
“We cannot be better in
terms of numbers. But in terms
of playing football, yes.”
For a long spell, though, in
the south-coast sunshine, as
Southampton battled for a
result that would ensure they
could celebrate Premier League
football next season, it had
looked like those records would
elude City, that this game
would fizzle out. But this is

things the normal way. In only
the sixth minute Jack Stephens
had marauded forward to
see his shot fumbled by Bravo
and then Wesley Hoedt hit the
bar.
In fact it was not until
Raheem Sterling turned his
marker and shot over the bar
that City troubled the Saints
goal.
John Stones then turned a
low cross wide.
The closest City came was
when a corner was not cleared,
Sterling picked up the loose
ball, jinked and shot but his
effort was deflected on to the
post.
Then goalkeeper McCarthy
tipped Stones’ header over the
bar.
With Swansea already losing
at home to Stoke, Saints knew
they were safe and they pushed
for a winner.
James Ward-Prowse saw
his header saved and then
Fernandinho cleared off the
line from Dusan Tadic.
It looked like honours were

There was just time for
Saints to kick-off again after
the goal before the final whistle
went, that late it was.
Mark Hughes, appointed
only in March, confirmed
afterwards that he wanted to
stay on in charge at St Mary’s
and said: “I have been able to

the opportunity. My view is
that the club will make a quick
decision one way or the other,
and if it involves me I would be
delighted.”

JOSE Mourinho says he

Carrick to be his No2
after the midfielder
ended his playing days.
The Manchester
United boss will not
appoint a new assistant
to replace long-term
lieutenant Rui Faria,
who is leaving to pursue
managerial options.
But once Carrick, 36,
has completed all of his
coaching qualifications
and obtained his pro
licence, the job is likely
to be his. Mourinho
said: “I’m not going to

LAST DAY DRAMA: P52-55

DANNY CIPRIANI is set
to join Gloucester next
season to keep his World
Cup dream alive.
The Wasps fly-half had
been considering a move
overseas but, after being
recalled by coach Eddie
Jones last week for
England’s tour to South
Africa next month, has
decided to stay at home
and is in advanced talks
with the European
Challenge Cup
finalists.
The RFU’s
policy of only
picking players
from – or in the

for – the
Premiership
meant a more

Cipriani, who has 14
caps, remains in the
frame for Japan 2019.
Sources at Kingsholm
say a final deal has not
yet been signed off but it
seems odds-on that
Cipriani will make the
move to what would be
his third English club
after two spells at
Wasps and another at
Sale.
Gloucester declined to
comment last night.

Hamilton has got ‘special’ feeling
LEWIS HAMILTON has warned
his title rivals he is approaching
peak performance after
scorching to victory in the
Spanish Grand Prix.
Hamilton led home a
Mercedes one-two in Barcelona,
their first of the season, with
Valtteri Bottas finishing more
than 20 seconds behind his
dominant team-mate.
A delighted Hamilton said: “I
felt a synergy with the car that I
By Simon Cass
hadn’t been feeling all year. It
felt special, it felt strong.
“This was definitely the
closest it’s been to some of the
performances we had last year.”
A sluggish second pit stop by
Ferrari saw Sebastian Vettel slip
from second to fourth, with Red
Bull’s Max Verstappen taking
third place. The result means
Hamilton heads to the Monaco
Grand Prix in two weeks now
leading Vettel by 17 points. But
the four-time world champion
was not about to celebrate.
“We go on a high note, but
we know we have a long
mountain to climb and a lot of
work to do,” he said. “It’s
important we continue to push
as hard as we have been.”
Vettel blamed three issues for
his poor performance. “One, we
were not quick enough and if we
are not able to see then we
are more than blind. Secondly,
we struggled with the tyres.
Thirdly, it was a poor weekend
in terms of reliability. If we
don’t see those issues then
there are no excuses,”
he said.
“But the bottom
line is that we were
not quick enough today
to win.”
