EXCLUSIVE
by NICK GUTTERIDGE
THE Government is set
to soften its position on
breaking free from EU
judges after Brexit, ministers fear.
A new Whitehall dossier reveals the UK will
?respect the remit? of the
European Court of Justice
when taking part in EU
programmes.
A Brussels official also
told The Sun EU members could be open to the
UK opting into its jurisdiction in some areas.
British officials insisted
it did not represent a
shift in position.
But Steve Bullock, a
former

Brussels,
observed:

Labour will now have time
to bolster their ranks by one
potentially crucial vote by

One fuming Brexiteer said:
?Why risk any further slippage? It?s p**s-poor politics.?
THERESA May will

THE panic of waiting for a
takeaway pizza delivery gets
our hearts racing 25 per cent
faster, scientists say.
Pizza fans hooked to monitors
saw their ticker rates soar from
70 to 87 beats per minute.
And their measurement on the stress
scale climbed from 17.25 to 18.38.
Experts identified four stages of
?Takeaway Trauma? after ordering ?
fidgety, anxious, irate and lost.
The first, after about five minutes,
sees people tap fingers and toes and
check apps for delivery time updates.
The second stage, anxious, begins
ten minutes in and features more app
checking and frustration.
At Stage No3, on about 40 minutes,
the customer gets visibly irate, with
loved ones usually bearing the brunt.
The 50-minute mark, Stage No4, sees
the pizza fan feeling despondent or
?lost? as it finally arrives but is the
wrong order or a letdown. Heart rates
drop below the initial levels.
Dr Martin Khechera said of his Wolverhampton University study: ?We have
all seen friends, partners and even
ourselves get antsy and annoyed while

Behavioural expert Darren Stanton,
who analysed his results, said: ?People
order a takeaway as a treat. It?s a way
to reward themselves after a long
week at work and enjoy a relaxing
night with loved ones. This study
shows it can be the opposite.?

CHEAT FACES LIFE
By ANDY CRICK and JONATHAN REILLY
LOVE-rat soldier Emile Cilliers
was dubbed a ?boobaholic? and
?sexting addict? by the wife he
twice tried to kill.
WITH WIFE HE
TRIED TO KILL
Sgt Cilliers, 37, last night faced
life in jail for attempting to murder
Victoria, 41, by sabotaging her
parachute before a jump.
She miraculously survived a 4,000ft fall
after both of her chutes failed.
Days earlier, he had tried to bump off
former Army physio Victoria by starting
a gas leak at their home.
Cilliers ? who was �,000 in debt ?
wanted her �0,000 life insurance payout to fund a new life with his
Tinder lover Stefanie Goller.
He sexted Stefanie as Victoria lay in
hospital and likened himself to Christian,
the kinky character in raunchy novel
Fifty Shades of Grey.
In one message, Stefanie, 32, said: ?I
love you in uniform ;)?
Cilliers replied: ?You going to salute
me??
Stefanie added: ?I guess sometimes I
will have to obey you ;)?
Emile responded: ?Will you call me
your Mr Grey??
Cilliers also begged Austrian Stefanie
to be his ?naked cleaner?.
He had also been romping with his
ex-wife Carly before tampering with
Victoria?s skydive equipment.
The bed-hopping sex addict also chatted to hookers and told one prostitute he
wanted to film them having unprotected
sex for �0.
He was yesterday found guilty of two
counts of attempted murder.
Police later branded Cilliers ?cold, calculating and callous?.
He showed no emotion in the dock as
the jury delivered their verdicts after a
retrial at Winchester crown court, Hants.
He was also convicted of causing damage reckless as to the endangerment of
life ? in relation to the failed gas blast ?
after just ten hours of deliberations.
Cilliers tampered with a gas valve then
headed to his barracks in Aldershot.
EVIL ?BO
Victoria later texted him: ?Did you alter
the gas lever into the cooker?? and even
asked: ?Are you trying to bump me off??
Cilliers? pliers had been used on the
valve and his blood was found on it.
Victoria broke her pelvis, ribs and vertebrae and spent three weeks in hospital
after her near-fatal plunge at Netheravon
airfield, Wilts, in April, 2015.
But while she was in intensive care,
Cilliers was bombarding Stefanie with
249

and
naughty
Whatsapp
messages.
Recalling her skydive, Victoria said: ?I
jumped out the aircraft and pulled my
parachute and there were issues as soon
as it deployed.
?I was shaking and absolutely terrified.
I just wanted to be back home or on the
ground. I did not really understand what
was happening,
?I decided to cut away to the reserve.
?Straight away as the reserve deployed
I could feel something was not right, I
was spinning, spinning really fast.
?I got the twists out but the G-force
was incredible. I know when I hit the
ground there was a metallic bang. Then
everything went black.?
She cheated death because one line
remained attached to the canopy and she
landed on a freshly-ploughed field.
Twice-married dad-of-six Cilliers, of
the Royal Army Physical Training Corps,
had previously swapped texts with
lSex addict hubby
had 2 lovers on side
Stefanie as Victoria had contractions with
their second baby. He had met Stefanie
after logging on to the mobile dating app
while on a ski trip to Austria.
They hooked up again in Germany for
New Year?s Eve in 2014.
He forked out �0 a night for a hotel
in Berlin after lying to his wife ? who
gave birth just weeks later ? saying he
was on a work trip.
The lovers? holiday fling developed and
Stefanie even moved to the UK to be
with Cilliers, who treated her to secret
luxury holidays he could not afford.
Friends of skydiving instructor Stefanie
said she was ?a lovely, beautiful and
intelligent girl? but the relationship was
always doomed because of her nomadic
lifestyle. One in her home town of
Innsbruck, said: ?She liked to live fast
and loose and knows how to have a
good time.?
Cilliers ? who married Victoria in 2011
? was also still seeing his first wife,
37-year-old Carly. In one text, days
before the skydive fall, he told her: ?So
tonight, we f*** twice.?
He met her while working as a barman at a pub in Oxfordshire in 2002.
The couple dated for a year before getting married and had two children.
The marriage ended in 2009, soon after
Cilliers met Victoria,

Womaniser Cilliers spent his life jumping from one lover?s bed to another but
he rarely cut his ties with ex-partners
and often went back to them for more.
His first sweetheart was fellow South

who
he
romanced when she was just 13 in 1996.
By the time she was 17 they already
had two kids together before splitting, but
he kept going back to her before he
moved to the UK. Nicolene, 34, said:
?Emile can?t ever let women go because,
even after a split, he wants to get back
into your life on his terms and he really
doesn?t want you to get over him.?
Yesterday judge Mr Justice Sweeney
remanded Cilliers in custody pending a
report on his ?dangerousness?.
Outside court, Det Insp Paul Franklin,
who led the case, said: ?Cilliers has
shown nothing but contempt for his wife.
?He has failed to accept any responsibility for his actions which reinforces our
view that he is a man whose only duty of
care is to himself.?
Cilliers ? who is due to be kicked out
of the Army ? face a maximum of life in
jail when he is sentenced on June 15.

�0,000 to buy luxury
cars, holidays and horses
over nearly nine years.
John Briers, 57, paid
cheques for Age Concern
into his own account and
awarded himself unauthorised bonuses on top
of his �,000 salary
At one stage he was
diverting 20 per cent of
the
charity?s
income,
causing job cuts.
Finance boss Graham
Cassidy, who spotted the
fraud in 2015, told Newcastle crown court: ?He
liked the best of everything.? Briers, of South

was found guilty and

Instead they want to woo

BORIS PRANKED
Jokers pretending to be Armenia
PM trick Johnson into 18min call
By HARRY COLE and
TOM NEWTON DUNN
SPY chiefs launched an
urgent probe last night
after prank callers got
Boris Johnson to reveal
plans for fighting the
threat of Vladimir Putin.
Stab lad
15, killed
A BOY of 15 was stabbed
to death last night.
Cops
responded
to
reports
of
a
knifing
around 7.50pm.
The lad was taken to
hospital but died an hour
later,
South
Yorkshire
Police confirmed.
Murder
cops
were
investigating and roads
were sealed off in Lowedges, Sheffield.
Chief Supt Stuart Barton
said officers were supporting relatives.
He called for witnesses
and said there would be
a police presence in the
area over the coming
days. He added: ?My
thoughts are with the
young man?s family at
this devastating time.?
WHAT BOJO SAID
We will continue to tighten the
squeeze on some of the oligarchs
who surround Putin... you throw
a stone in Kensington and you?ll
find you?ll hit an oligarch. Some
of them are close to Putin and
some of them aren?t.
The Foreign Secretary
told Moscow hoaxers posing as Armenia?s PM the
UK was targeting superrich Russians in London.
During the 18-minute prank,
he also discussed the nerve
agent attack on ex-spy Sergei
Skripal and daughter Yulia.
He told tricksters Alexei Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov
he was ?like, almost 100 per
cent sure? Russia was to blame.
BoJo added: ?We will be able
to do more to illustrate that.?
But the Government was left
red-faced as he admitted: ?We
will continue to tighten the
squeeze on some of the oligarchs who surround Putin.
Laugh . . Vladimir and Alexei, and Armenia?s Nikol Pashinyan, inset
You throw a stone in Kensington and you?ll hit an oligarch.?
His comments, made earlier
this month, were published in
pro-Russia government newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.
A
Foreign
Office
source
blamed the Kremlin for the
prank, saying: ?This seems to
be the latest desperate attempt
to save face after it was internationally shamed in the wake
of the Skripal attack.?
And they insisted Mr Johnson had ?rumbled them pretty
quickly and ended the call? ?
despite being on the line for 18
minutes. No10 has confirmed
an urgent Whitehall investigation had been triggered.
In further embarrassment to
the Foreign Office, it emerged
the pranksters, whose victims
include Sir Elton John, were
directed to Mr Johnson by his
deputy Sir Alan Duncan.
They have also tried to trick
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson in recent weeks. But an
MoD spokesman said: ?We saw
them coming a mile off.?

PATIENTS are being put
at risk of harm on NHS
hospital wards which are
more overcrowded than
ever before, medics warn.
Overnight bed occupancy hit a record 92.6
per cent between January
and March.
That is 1.2 per cent up
on the same time last
year and well above the
85 per cent cap considered safe by experts.
Higher rates make it
easier for infections to
spread, harder to contain
outbreaks
of
vomiting
bugs, and cause backlogs
in A&E. It can also lead
to operations being cancelled because doctors
have nowhere to put
patients after surgery.
Consultant Ian Eardley,
of the Royal College of
Surgeons,
said:
?These
figures are worrying.?
Labour blamed ?years
of cuts? to the NHS.

THE
SAYS
EU?s star wars
THE EU?s repugnant arrogance in excluding us from the Galileo security satellite
should open even Remainers? eyes.
Brussels is prepared to endanger millions to teach Brexit Britain a lesson.
Last year there was outrage at the
merest hint of us using our security
strength as a bargaining chip, even as
the Government ruled it out.
German-backed EU bureaucrats are
doing far worse.
So be it. We are Europe?s main security power. They have much to lose.
Theresa May is demanding back the
�illion we put into this system. But
that is chicken feed next to our �billion divorce bill. She must insist not a
penny is paid until we are reinstated in
Galileo and a trade deal is signed.
We were naive to imagine Brussels
would be a friendly partner after Brexit.
Its powerful bureaucrats are now
nakedly and dangerously hostile.
Moneypit NHS
WOULD you pay �000 extra tax a year to
keep the NHS afloat? How about more
when, inevitably, that isn?t enough?
The sums needed are astronomical.
The Government is set to put in
�0million extra a week. But that
merely keeps it going as demand soars.
Any improvement will need far more
? and the NHS is already asking for it.
Experts say the annual budget must
soar by �BILLION within 15 years, or
9p on income tax. No sensible Government will raise that, nor should it.
On its 70th birthday, Theresa May should
announce a Royal Commission, and let the
brightest health experts and politicians
agree on a new NHS model we can afford.
Jobs for lags
WE back day-release prisoners getting
jobs . . . under strict conditions.
Here?s why. Our jails are violent, druginfested cesspits breeding hopelessness.
Lags emerge with no prospects into
unemployment, then drift back into
crime in a dismal cycle costing billions.
What a difference, though, when a
store chain like Timpson takes a chance
on ex-cons and gives them a new start.
But Justice Secretary David Gauke
MUST ensure watertight vetting.
If just one sex predator or thug reoffends
on day release, the idea will fall apart.
Migrant riddle
HOW come vast numbers of migrants still
flock to a Britain which supposedly
became racist overnight on June 23, 2016?
Did the 200,000 net new arrivals last
year not get the Remoaners? memo?
Or is the reality different?
Yes, Britain voted to control its borders, like any nation beyond the EU.
But we are still the most welcoming
country on Earth.

GUIDE TO HOW LAW WILL AFFECT YOU
WONDERING why your
email inbox is overflowing with messages asking
you to ?keep connected?
or ?stay in touch??
Apps, social media firms,
advertisers
and
countless
others
desperately
want
people to ?review our privacy
policy?
and
?accept
new
terms and conditions.?
You might assume this has
something to do with the
recent
Facebook
scandal,
where
founder
Mark
Zuckerberg had to apologise
for allowing users? data to
end up in the hands of
political forces.
But the real reason is a
major shake-up of EU laws
governing
the
information
kept about you online.
The less-than-snappily-titled
General
Data
Protection
Regulations
(EU)
2016/679
came into force today.
The
beefed-up
?GDPR?
rules mean everyone from
hi-tech firms to public bodies
need to change their ways.
This should be good news
if you are deluged by spam
or embarrassed by party
pictures on social media.
Here,
GRANT
ROLLINGS
answers
some
common
questions about the changes.
DO I need to reply to emails asking me to review a privacy policy?
If that message came from a
provider you actually like, such as a
charity or your favourite football
team, not responding will limit their
future interactions with you.
Under the new data laws you
need to give clear consent to online
tracking or being sent unexpected
messages. And if you haven?t done
so by today, that charity or football
team might have to stop letting you
know about new offers and deals.
Don?t worry, though ? if you miss
today?s deadline it shouldn?t mean
you are suddenly blocked by all
the sites or services you have been
subscribed to.
WILL I have to read through lots of
boring legal forms?
Everything in the new digital age
is snappy and easy to digest ? apart
from the long and baffling terms
and conditions.
That all changes from today.
Under the new law, companies
cannot use mind-numbing T&Cs
full of impenetrable legal jargon to
make you aware of the changes.
The request for consent must be
given in an intelligible, separate and
easily accessible form.
And if they are handing over your
data to someone else, they have to
spell it out in plain English.
CAN I decide what ads and emails
I want to receive?
If you are suffering from unticking
fatigue, help is on its way.
Currently consumers face the
annoying task of having to untick
several boxes that ask them
whether they are happy to receive
?selected marketing? communications. After today, you will only
receive ads from ?marketing
partners? if you are told their name
and you actively tick or click on a
box to say you want them.
WILL I still receive email spam?
While the cascade will be greatly
reduced, it won?t cease altogether.
Legitimate companies should
abide by the new rules but there
is little to stop conmen sending
emails offering to enlarge your
manhood or informing you about a
financial windfall waiting in Nigeria.
CAN I challenge the data which
is kept about me?
If you lost out on a loan, a pay rise
or a job because a computer has
said ?no?, you can now ask for a
good old-fashioned human being
to be involved in the decisionmaking process.
The problem until now has been
that computers have based their
decisions on the information they
are given. If the data held about you
was incorrect or incomplete, you
may have been treated unfairly.
Adam French, a consumer rights
expert from Which?, said: ?For
some workers an algorithm is
used to judge whether they are
completing their tasks quickly
enough to be paid a certain rate.
?With the new law, you?ll be able
to get a human involved, because
Reason your
inbox is full?
It?s the new
privacy updata
maybe you are being slowed down
by faulty machinery and the
computer doesn?t know that.?
CAN I have embarrassing information about me taken offline?
If there is a particularly sensitive
image or over-opinionated latenight social media post that you
don?t want anyone to see any more,
help could be on the way. Under the
new law you will be able to ask for
so-called ?Data Erasure?, so those
words and images are removed
from sight forever.
But this ?right to be forgotten? is
not guaranteed and can be challenged by the firm holding the data.
WILL the change mean fewer ads
popping up on my screen?
What caused the most outrage in
the recent scandal involving Facebook was that British marketing
firm Cambridge Analytica used
data such as post ?likes? to create a
profile of millions of voters.
But profiling is also used by firms
to target adverts at consumers. And
many companies, such as Facebook, have made a fortune by
harvesting that data for advertisers.
From now on firms will have to
make it clearer that they do this, and
consumers will be able to opt out of
profiling for targeted ads.
Ailidh Callander, a lawyer for
Privacy International, which has
campaigned for tougher data laws,
said: ?Companies are exploiting
our data in ways we do not
understand, making it
their business to
learn
about
your habits,
sex interests, political beliefs
and more. Companies must protect
our data and the new
privacy law pushes
companies do this.?
WILL my kids be
better protected?
The new rules say
GAGS ARE A LAUGHING MATTER
l?Do you know a specialist in GDPR??
?Yes.?
?Can you give me his email address??
?No.?
l Man in club: ?Hey DJ, play A Little Respect.?
DJ: ?No.?
Man: ?I demand it under my Right to Erasure.?
RIGHT ON
. . . Erasure?s
Andy Bell
that younger children cannot
consent to online services without a
parent?s agreement.
But there is little to stop your kids
from pretending they are an adult.
WHAT happens if my data is
hacked?
There was outrage last November when taxi app Uber admitted it
had kept secret a data breach that
affected 57million of its customers
and drivers. From today, firms will
need to report any breach within 72
hours of first becoming aware of it.
Failure to comply could result in a
fine which is equal to two per cent
of the firm?s annual global turnover.
WHO has to obey the new laws?
Every business, no matter
how big or small, has to abide
by the new data protection
laws ? from media giants to
landlords with just one
buy-to-let property.
Public services also
need to implement it,
as do firms operating from outside
of the EU if they
want to do business within it.
At the moment
the
Government
intends to keep the
new EU data laws after
Brexit.

18 MONTHS OF
SHEER HORROR
THE devastated parents of
nanny Sophie Lionnet say
her killers should be ?burnt
at the stake?.
Sabrina Kouider, 35, and Ouissem Medouni, 40, starved and
tortured the 21-year-old before
torching her body in the garden.
As the pair were convicted of
murder yesterday, Sophie?s mum
Catherine Devallonne, 48, told The

?I?d have them burnt at the stake
like Joan of Arc. Alive. That?s what
they deserve. It?s maybe cruel but
what they did was even more cruel.?
French nanny Sophie?s dad Patrick
Lionnet, 56, added: ?These people do

A shocking photo was released of
their gaunt daughter, taken from a
video her torturers made days before
her death last September.
The distressing image was in stark
contrast to the happy woman who
arrived in Britain 18 months earlier
to look after the couple?s two kids.
Mrs Devallonne said: ?It was very
difficult to see my daughter like
that. I saw the video of her tortured
by those two five times.
?She looked awful, gaunt, so thin.
Not like the happy, smiling Sophie I
will always remember.?

him of being a paedophile who
drugged and molested her family.
The fantasist also accused Sophie,
who left France to work for Kouider
after being introduced by a friend
on Facebook, of sleeping with him.
Kouider also accused her of
facilitating
Mr
Walton?s
alleged
abuse in return for the promise of
roles in Hollywood films.
She then imprisoned and starved
Sophie at her cramped flat in
Southfields, South West London.
Sophie,
from
Troyes,
France,
penned heartbreaking notes, writing
?I want to go home? and ?I want to
leave?. But she was paid just � a
month and could not afford a ticket.
Kouider, who lived on disability
benefits, said she would not let her
go until she confessed she was complicit in Walton?s supposed abuse.
The court was shown clips of
Sophie admitting to Kouider?s false
claims during an eight-and-a-half
hour inquisition.
Jurors were warned to brace
themselves before viewing the ?truly
harrowing? footage.
Richard Horwell QC said: ?Sophie
by now was completely compliant,
her will and spirit finally crushed
following her arduous examination at the hands of both
defendants.
?It shows on her face
and in her demeanour
and voice. She makes a
truly dreadful sight.?

branding Sophie a monster. Sophie suffered frac-

It is unclear how Sophie

They extinguished the blaze and
found body parts, along with
Sophie?s burnt glasses.
In court, the defendants claimed
each other was responsible for
Sophie?s murder. The case was said
to bear the hallmarks of a ?folie a
deux? or ?madness of two?, with
Kouider the driving force and
weak Medouni a willing follower.
Ex-pop star Mr Walton flew in
to give evidence against his ex and
told how he had never heard of
Sophie until after her death.
Mr Walton, a judge on Pop Idol
Vietnam who helped manage Irish
girl group B*witched, told how
Kouider would ?go crazy? during
their two-year relationship.
He said she left him in 2012
after claiming she was pregnant.
He continued to finance her life
until he cut ties in 2014, setting in
motion the tragic chain of events
leading to Sophie?s murder.
Kouider spoke to police more
than 30 times about Mr Walton
before the murder.
She also forced Sophie to report
him, though she secretly told a cop
the claims were fictional.
But inquiries never turned on
Kouider, a failed fashion designer.
Sophie?s mum also berates herself
for not helping her daughter.
She said: ?Every time I had her
on the telephone, even when it was
for a short moment, she reassured
me that all was well.
?I think she hid all these things
to protect me and the family so we
didn?t worry about her.?
Only once was she concerned,
when Sophie told her Kouider had
accused her of stealing a jewel.
She also said Kouider lied to her
as Sophie prepared to come home.
She recalled: ?The last time I
Xxyxyxyxyxyxxyyxyxyxyxy
spoke to Sophie was August 8, 2017.
She was due to come home the
day before but Sabrina called me
and said there were several problems she wanted to sort out.
?She said Sophie had taken the
children to a house and someone
threatened the children.
?I wish Sophie could have given
me a little sign. Even, simply,
?Mum, it?s not going well? I would

She
added:
?Sophie

a

loved life, she was passionate about
music. I still don?t understand how
anyone could do this to her.?
Jurors spent more than 29 hours?
deliberating before convicting the
pair of murder yesterday. They will
be sentenced next month.
In a statement read out in court,
their victim?s mum said: ?Our
Sophie will soon be laid to rest.
No god will ever forgive you for
what you have done.?
Mr Walton told The Sun he
hoped the verdicts would provide
comfort to Sophie?s family, but
added: ?I wouldn?t wish this experience on any parent ever.?

NEW TWIST IN
By
JAMES BEAL
US Editor
A LURID sex allegation
against Woody Allen had
threatened to end his
60-year career after a
succession of Hollywood
titans were brought down
by the #MeToo movement.
But now his adopted son Moses
has
trashed
the
decades-old
claim that the director molested
his
adopted
daughter
Dylan
when she was seven.
In a detailed 4,600-word account
which he posted online, Moses, 40,
placed the blame for the director?s
predicament firmly on his bitter
mother Mia Farrow, who he claimed
had ?brainwashed? his siblings.
According to him, the actress
coached Dylan to repeat the slur to
get back at Allen over a seedy affair,
branded her ex as ?evil? and handed
out beatings to her kids.
Moses wrote: ?I feel that I can no
longer stay silent as my father
continues to be condemned for a
crime he did not commit.?
Directly addressing his 73-year-old
mother, Moses called for an end to
the witch-hunt which has seen his
dad publicly shunned by movie
stars including Colin Firth.
Farrow, mum to four biological
and seven adopted children, did
not respond yesterday.
Instead she tweeted proudly
about an interview with Fletcher
Previn ? one of three biological
children she had with composer
Andre Previn ? who is an
executive at tech giant IBM.
Farrow adopted Moses ? then a
two-year-old Korean with cerebral
palsy ? in 1980 following her divorce
from Previn.
Yesterday it was left to Farrow?s
adopted daughter Dylan herself ?
who maintains she was abused ? to
respond to Moses? account.
?She drilled into our
heads Woody was evil?
She wrote: ?It is beyond hurtful
and part of a larger effort to discredit and distract from my assault.?
So who is telling the truth? Despite
26 years, interviews with eight
Farrow kids, a police probe, a
custody battle and a child sex abuse
clinic investigation, the events of
August 4, 1992, are still no clearer.
Movie director Allen has always
denied sexually abusing Dylan ?
claiming Great Gatsby star Mia led a
vendetta against him after he had an
affair with her other adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, now 47. Allen
and Soon-Yi are now married.
Four years ago, Dylan publicly
stated she was molested by Allen in
the attic while playing with an
electric train set.
In Moses? blog post, titled A Son
Speaks Out and released on Wednesday night, he recounts what he
believes happened at the Farrow family home in Bridgewater, Connecticut.
Moses wrote: ?My mother had put
all of us on notice not to let him
(Allen) out of our sight.
?Seven months earlier she had
learned that he was in an intimate
relationship with my 21-year-old sister Soon-Yi after discovering Polaroids of her in Woody?s apartment.
?For months now, she had been
drilling it into our heads like a mantra: Woody was ?evil?, ?a monster? ?the
devil?, and Soon-Yi was ?dead to us?.
?This was the constant refrain,
whether or not Woody was around.
?So often did she repeat it that
Satchel
(Moses?
adopted
brother)
would announce to one of our
nannies, ?My sister is f****** my
father?. He had just turned four.
?My mother was our only source of
information about Woody ? and she
was extremely convincing.?
Family
therapist
Moses,
now
estranged from his siblings, says
Farrow was shopping with pal Casey
Pascal when Allen visited that day.
Dylan, 14-year-old Moses, their
four-year-old brother Satchel ? later
named Ronan ? and Casey?s three
kids were all present, along with
nanny Kristi, Casey?s nanny Alison

explanation
for
Allen?s
innocence is that he was never alone
with Dylan at any point during the
day. He writes: ?I had promised to
keep an eye out for any trouble.
?I deliberately made sure to note
everyone?s coming and going.
?Woody would leave the room on
occasion, but never with Dylan.
?Along with five kids, there were
three adults in the house.
?None of us would have allowed
Dylan to step away with Woody.?
But after Allen had left the house,
Casey?s nanny Alison phoned Farrow
claiming that she saw him on the
sofa with his head in Dylan?s lap.
The call prompted Farrow to question Dylan, taping her answers over

the course of several days as she
asked: ?What did he do next??
Cops were called and a sixmonth criminal investigation was
conducted by Yale New Haven Hospital?s Child Sexual Abuse Clinic.
It concluded that Dylan?s statements had a ?rehearsed quality?
and that they were ?likely coached
or influenced by her mother?. No
criminal charges were ever brought.
Moses wrote: ?Those conclusions
perfectly match my own childhood
experience: coaching, influencing,
and rehearsing are three words that
sum up exactly how my mother
tried to raise us.?
And he sets out a simple reason
why Dylan?s claim that she was
abused while playing with a train
set could not have happened.
He writes: ?There was no electric
train set in that attic. There was, in
fact, no way for kids to play up
there, even if we had wanted to.?
Moses also alleged that Farrow
was
violent
to
her
children,
including Soon-Yi who he says was
her ?most frequent scapegoat?.
In one incident, he claimed that
the enraged actress threw a large
porcelain ornament at her head ?
missing her face but shattering and
hitting her legs.
Moses added: ?Years later, Mia
beat her with a telephone receiver.
Soon-Yi made it clear that her
desire was simply to be left alone,
which increasingly became the case.
?Even if her relationship with
Woody
was
unconventional,
it
allowed her to escape.?
Moses claimed that he was also
beaten by Farrow, alleging that she
once ?slapped my face, knocking
off my glasses? before getting him
to rehearse an apology to HER.
He said: ?That was the start of
her coaching, drilling, scripting,
and rehearsing ? brainwashing. I
became anxious and fearful. Once,
when I was given a pair of jeans, I
thought they would look cool if I
cut off a couple of the belt loops.
?Mia made me stand
naked in her room?
?When Mia saw what I had done,
she spanked me repeatedly and
had me remove all my clothing,
making me stand naked in the
corner of her room.?
On another occasion, he claimed
?she hit me uncontrollably all over
my body? for leaving the curtains
open in the family?s TV room. He
added: ?I was defeated, deflated,
beaten and beaten down.
?Mia had stripped me of my
voice and my sense of self.?
Now he is trying to clear his
father?s name with the revealing
blog post ? just months after the
allegations re-emerged in the wake
of the #MeToo movement.
Reporting
by
his
journalist
brother Ronan ? Farrow and
Allen?s biological son ? had been
integral to bringing down serial
movie pervert Harvey Weinstein.
And in January, A-list actors
walked away from Allen and
big-name sponsors threatened to
quit his movies.
But Allen, now 82, was spotted
dining with Hollywood leading lady
Scarlett Johansson, 33, in New York
earlier this week and now has the
support of Moses.
His son wrote: ?My father has
been accused of wrongdoing only
once, by an enraged ex-partner.
?During almost 60 years in the
public eye, not one other person
has come forward to accuse him.?
But Moses fails to address two
decades of reporting by Vanity Fair
journalist Maureen Orth.
She wrote that ?Allen had been
in therapy for alleged inappropriate
behaviour toward Dylan? before the
abuse allegation was made public.
Orth also claimed that Allen had
sought treatment over two years for
his alleged ?inappropriate? fatherly
behaviour toward Dylan.
Whatever the truth, the latest
revelations only seem to be adding
to the Farrow family?s pain.

ROMANIANS now make up the second-biggest non-UK

STARS UNITE FOR NHS CHARITY SONG
IT?S been 51 years since THE
BEATLES released classic With
A Little Help From My Friends,
but I?d bank on it soaring
to No1 shortly.
I can reveal PAUL McCARTNEY
has been approached by ITV
bosses for permission to use
the track for a Band Aid-style
charity single to mark the 70th
birthday of the NHS.
And as Sir Paul, right, gave
the OK, American super-producer

in to pull the project together ?

with backing from THE
CHOIR and a host of A-listers.
I?m told chiefs want to include
stars born throughout the sevendecade history of the health service, with big names including
THE
SCRIPT,
ALESHA
DIXON,
ELBOW?s GUY GARVEY, RITA ORA,
JESSIE J and UB40 all signed up.
Sources say the final line-up
will be a who?s who of British
pop, with major rockers including
CHRIS MARTIN and COLDPLAY
approached, along with the likes
of LITTLE MIX, ROBBIE WILLIAMS
and OLLY MURS. There is to be a
handful of TV faces too.
An industry insider said:
?This is going to be huge.
?Think Band Aid but for a
cause much closer to home.
Obviously everyone involved has
a personal link to the NHS.
?At some stage it has
had an impact on everybody?s lives, which is why
so many
of
the
stars
have been
quick to say yes.
?It?s early days but
the hope is that by
the
time
the
final
line-up is confirmed, it will
be all of the biggest names
in the business.
?The first stage was to
get Sir Paul to agree to
the song being used and
he gave it his blessing ? although
the rights are actually owned by a
publishing company, which had
the final say.
?Sadly he has prior commitments when the actual
studio recording is taking
place
but
they
were
delighted
to
have
his
approval. It will make huge
amounts for charity.?
The
project
will
also be filmed as
part of a major ITV
documentary set to
air in the coming
months
?
with
proceeds
from
the single going
to a range of
good
causes
connected
to
the NHS.
With that star
power, the track
should
provide
more than a
little help . . .

By ROB PATTINSON
A DOG owner faced a

pets ate a cannabis stash
during a woodland walk.
Bernadette Symonds, 73,
failed to realise what
both pets scoffed but
became concerned when
cocker spaniel Fin began
staggering round at home.
A local vet thought the
dog had a spinal injury
so sent him for X-rays at
a specialist clinic.
But when Mrs Symonds
returned home she saw
labrador Percy, six, was
also staggering about.
She realised they had
eaten something on the
walk and told the vet,
who suspected poisoning.
Both dogs were put on
drips overnight and blood
tests revealed the dope.
Mrs Symonds, of Lowestoft, Suffolk, said: ?It
was obviously very tasty

in place against railings

Then workmate Danny

to safety in Exeter.

was only told of the deaths last month.
The city?s crown court heard she has
had several infections and may not survive another.
Bolland and Worrall were each found
guilty of four charges of murder.
Bolland got a life term and must serve
a minimum of 40 years. Worrall was
handed a life sentence and told he must
serve at least 37 years. Brierley was found
guilty of manslaughter and must serve 21
years in a young offender institution.
The trial heard that Bolland blamed
ex-pal Kyle for a car fire, and their
homes were targeted in tit-for-tat attacks.
Two weeks before the murders Kyle?s
mum contacted police after Bolland sent
her a text saying: ?You owe me five ton

But after officers took no action, Bolland texted a friend saying: ?I?m buzzing.

STRENGTH . . . Connor with the girls
By
EMMA PIETRAS
CRADLING her newborn
girls together for the first
time, mum Amy Campbell
smiles for the camera.
But tragically, only one of her
tiny daughters would survive.
Born 13 weeks premature and weighing just 2lb each, Esme and Charlotte
had spent seven weeks in separate
incubators.
Just hours before the heartbreaking
shot was taken, Amy, 30, and her
husband Connor, 32, were told Esme
had so much fluid on her brain that
she would have no quality of life even
if she survived.
Desperate to see the twins forge
some kind of bond, Amy asked nurses
to help her hold the pair at the same
time. And as they were placed on
Amy?s chest, Charlotte wrapped an arm
round her sister.
Amy told The Sun: ?When I held
them together, my world felt complete.
Everything felt right for that moment
moment.
?When Charlotte reached out to
Esme, it was incredibly sweet. It was a
very special moment between the two
of them. It was like she was giving her
sister a cuddle.?
Esme died in her mother?s arms two
days after that picture was taken. Tears
roll down Amy?s cheeks in another
heartbreaking snap.
?Incredible to know girls
were working together?
Amy is now expecting again, with a
baby boy due next month.
And the Leeds couple are determined
he and Charlotte, now aged 22
months,
will
grow
up
knowing
about Esme, who Amy calls their
?tiny dancer?.
She said: ?Overcoming the milestones
of my pregnancy has been very
challenging and an anxious time.
?But with the support from family,
friends, doctors and my midwife, we
have got through it. I?m due in a week
and since I?ve reached full term, I feel
great and able to relax.
?Charlotte is too young to understand
she?s going to be a big sister but we?re
very excited.?
The couple, who met 12 years ago at
university, started trying for a family
after they married in September 2015.
And they were overjoyed when Amy
learned she was pregnant in February
2016. But they only discovered Amy, a
former special needs teacher, was
having twins when she suffered a bleed
11 weeks into the pregnancy.
Amy says: ?I went from thinking I
was having a miscarriage to finding
out I was having two babies.
?The bleed happened because I was
getting bigger twice as fast. I was in
shock but so happy.?
Connor, a commercial manager, and
Amy found out they were having girls
at their 20-week scan.
But four weeks later Amy?s waters
broke and she was rushed to Harrogate
District Hospital, North Yorks.
She says: ?For the next 17 days it was
a case of hoping I wouldn?t go into
labour. I couldn?t go home as both girls
were breach.
?When the nurse told us Esme was

th

that
sharing her waters with her sister, it
was incredible to know the girls were
working together. I felt very proud.?
Finally, after an emergency C-section,
Esme was born weighing 2lb 2oz, and
Charlotte 2lb. They were moved to a
neonatal unit in separate incubators.
Amy says: ?Charlotte was so poorly.
They struggled to incubate her and we
were told each hour was crucial. Esme
was stronger but at about six weeks,
Esme developed an infection.?
Amy was out walking the couple?s
dog when she got a phone call from
hospital staff. She says: ?They never
called unless there was an emergency
so I knew something was really wrong.
I knew they were going to tell us Esme
was dying. I collapsed in the field.?
Esme had a dangerous amount of
fluid in her heart and on her brain.
Amy says: ?They told us she was
severely brain-damaged and would
have no quality of life. She was having
frequent seizures and would have to be
on a lot of medication. The doctors
and nurses were extremely supportive
and said we didn?t have to make any
rushed decisions. She was comfortable.?

made the agonising decision to switch
off her life support. The next day, the
pair were christened on the ward.
Amy says: ?The christening was
beautiful. All our family and close
friends were there. We were going to
switch off Esme?s life support after the
christening but we couldn?t do it.
?We decided to wait until the next
day. She was having regular seizures
and we knew there was no benefit to
prolonging her suffering.
?That night I couldn?t sleep, so I
went down to see Esme. I sat by her
incubator and asked the nurse for a
pen and paper. I just started to write
about her. We always said she would
be a dancer or love yoga because she
was so relaxed and her little feet were
always on the go. It felt so good to
write it all down and capture everything special about her.?
Life support was switched off the
next day ? a decision Connor calls
?heartbreaking?.
He says: ?You try to separate your
emotion from it and do what you feel
is right for your daughter, not what
you want for yourself.?
He then carried Esme to the family
room to say goodbye. Amy says: ?She
stayed with us for 12 hours after life
support was turned off. I was holding
her when she took her last breath.
?I tried not to cry because I wanted
her to be surrounded by happiness,
love and strength.
?I wanted her to remember she had
a strong mum and shouldn?t be scared
of where she was going next.
?Charlotte got me
through hardest days?
?I called the piece of writing I did
with Esme ?My Bright Shining Star?.
That night, when Connor and I got
home, this shooting star went across
the sky and we knew it was her.
?I think she wanted us to know she
was happy and loved and it made us
understand we had done the right
thing. It was beautiful.?
Esme was buried two weeks later in
Charlotte?s christening outfit, as Amy
wanted her to have something of her
sister?s. Now the parents have set up
Campbellinas ? their nickname for the
twins ? raising more than �,000 for
the hospital. Amy, who also blogs to
help families cope with the loss of a
child, says: ?Charlotte was my warrior.
She went from strength to strength
and got me through my hardest days.?
In October 2016, the twins? original
due date, Charlotte was well enough to
come home.
Amy says: ?It was bittersweet. Esme
was never far from our thoughts. The
first year was the hardest, going
through all Charlotte?s milestones
without Esme. But it has got easier.?
Connor adds: ?In
In Charlotte?s room
there are two sets of everything. She
will grow up knowing she?s a twin.
?When I visit Esme?s grave, sometimes I take Charlotte.?
The couple decided to have another
baby as Charlotte turned one.
Amy says: ?I was nervous but
wanted a sibling for Charlotte. She

MATT?S HAUNTED HOUSE ROLE
MATT SMITH knows all
about acting out a part in a
world that?s a million miles
from normal folk?s reality.
And he was also in Doctor
Who . . . But The Crown star?s
new role has taken him somewhere a bit different from
Buckingham Palace and the
Tardis ? an Essex vaping shop.
I can reveal that Matt has the
lead role in His House, a new
horror movie in which he plays
a landlord who is struggling
with his past and has a background in the supernatural.
He rents out his flat, which is
haunted by some sort of evil
force, and all hell breaks loose.
On Wednesday, my eagle-eyed
spies saw Matt filming at
the flat, in Basildon, Essex, as
well as at the nearby vaping
shop, a bookies and the local
shopping centre.
In the movie, which is being
made by BBC Films, a young
refugee couple move into
the flat after making a
harrowing escape from
war-torn Sudan.
But it later turns out
they have run from one
nightmare into another.
An on-set source said:
?Matt?s
character
is
described as a ?strange
landlord?.
?When the couple move in,
things
go
pear-shaped very quickly.? The
film was announced earlier this
year, with rising acting duo
WUNMI

and SOPE

It faced problems early on
with a lawsuit from Harvey
Weinstein?s old production
company over distribution
rights, just before allegations against him arose.
It was later confirmed
the lawsuit would not
proceed and the film
could go ahead with its
new team, production firm

I cheated night
before wedding
Dear Deidre
I?VE just married but the
night before my wedding I
was having sex with one of
my clients.
I work for a marketing company
and our place is rife with flirting
and innuendo. It?s a fun environment but almost everyone has
skeletons in their closet ? inappropriate relationships with clients.
I?m a woman of 32. I?d been
engaged for three years and we
got married at Easter. My husband
is 35. I always wanted to marry
him but now I think I might have
made a mistake.
Last year I was given a new
project looking after a client who
was promoting merchandise for
the Commonwealth Games. This
drop-dead gorgeous guy came to
our office for a meeting.
He?s 37 and he looked so handsome I was swooning as I made
him a coffee.
Our meeting turned to lunch
and when we finished up I said to
him, ?Ring me any time if I can
help you with anything.?
That night I had just settled
down to watch a soap on TV with

a glass of wine when my phone
rang. It was the client from work.
He asked me something trivial but
then said, ?Look, I?m sorry to call
you so late but in all honesty, I
couldn?t stop thinking about you.?
I cut the call short as my fiance
was home but the next morning I
called my client and we arranged
to have lunch in a hotel in town.
We ended up taking a room ?
and called room service after we?d
had the most amazing sex I had
ever had.
I felt swept off my feet by this
guy. His body was ripped and he
really appreciated what I had to
offer. We?ve been meeting up for
sex for months now ? we even did
it in the back of his car the night
before my big day.
It was just great chemistry at
first but now I have feelings for
him. Should I walk out on my
husband?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: What a mess. You?ve
known this guy a short while but it
seems like pure lust. How did he feel
about your wedding? Would he want a
long-term committed relationship or
are you just his bit of fun?
If it?s the latter, don?t jeopardise
your marriage for the sake of secret
quickie sex. You?re bound to get rumbled and you?ll be the one having to
explain yourself to family and friends.
It won?t be pleasant.
Stop the affair and talk to your
husband about injecting some spice
into your relationship, having date
nights and pepping up your flagging
sex life. My e-leaflet called 50 Ways To
Add Fun To Sex will help.
If you realise your marriage really
isn?t right, then still give yourself some
space away from your lover while you
sort out your marriage one way or the
other. My e-leaflet Torn Between Two
Men can help you think this through.

because she?s worried about

ex was history so we took up
being together again.

been great, with us spending

Perhaps neither you nor her
ex are right for her?
Give her some space and
yourself a time limit for her
to make up her mind.
Go out with your friends
and don?t mope around
waiting. That will actually up

completely different would
be a better compromise.

Protection Factor (SPF) of 30. The higher
the factor, the better it is at blocking UVB

?The UVA star rating tells you how good
a cream is at blocking out the light that

Doria glory
hallelujah
Doria and Meg
THERE were two spectators
who caught my eye at Prince
Harry and Meghan?s big day.
The first was David Beckham ?
back to his best in his dapper Dior
morning suit.
The second was Doria, as cool
as a cucumber in an elegant, pale
green Oscar De la Renta outfit,
wearing a nose ring and smiling
softly with her eyes ? a trait
inherited by her daughter.
Meghan?s mum sat tall and strong,
her teary eyes glistening with pride,
and she kept her composure as
her girl, a mixed-race Californian
divorcee, joined the Royal Family.
Unlike many who felt sorry for
the bride because her dad was a
no-show, I realised having her mum
there was no mere consolation prize.
This is not your stereotypical
meddling and hysterical in-law.
This lady has raised a woman
who will modernise our monarchy.
There is no doubt that watching
her mum go it alone after divorcing
her dad, Thomas Markle, led to
Meghan becoming who she is.
Aged
11,
Meghan
successfully
campaigned for a firm to change its
sexist language in a TV advert.
And on her official Duchess of
Sussex web page, she says: ?I am
proud to be a woman and a
feminist.?
Kids of single parents are often
branded unfairly, but throughout
my life I have
been inspired by
lone mums and
dads ? my own
included ? and I
can
safely
say
neither the kids,
nor the parents,
need any sympathy.
After my parents
split,
my
mum
Frances, now 57,
put up with my
hideous
teenage
tantrums.
She
worked
full-time,
cooked,
cleaned, taxied us
around, did all the
odd jobs and spent Friday nights
alone while we were at Dad?s.
When I later went out boozing
with my mates on Saturdays, not
giving her a second thought, she
would stay up late, worried sick. She
calmly told me to get a grip when I
scowled at her boyfriends or acted
up. She was there for the good, the
bad, the ugly and the downright
awful times. Thankfully, I have a

great
dad
who
stepped up to the plate, too. But
it was usually one, not both, who
would go to parents? evening, or
watch me play hockey or attend a
school concert I was in.
I?m not saying my mum is unique
? she?s just my mum.
There are around two million
single parents in the UK, making
up a quarter of families with
dependent children. I know single
parents who hold down several jobs
at the same time to provide for
their kids. But like Doria, they also
have rich and fulfilling lives and
their kids have the benefit of
knowing them as an individual
rather than as one half of a couple.
Single parents are the people we
should look up to.
These parents do everything. They
bring the fun, do the discipline, have
the difficult talks and are sometimes on the receiving end of pure
hatred. They become a super-sized
with Frances
role model, and if they don?t do
their job well, they?ll know about it.
Meghan was a UN advocate for
women?s rights before she even met
Harry. She knows what she believes
in and knows how to get it.
Seeing Doria navigate the Royal
Wedding hysteria in front of nearly
two billion global viewers with such
grace, it is clear to see where her
girl gets it from.
This is one mum who did her
job well.

YOU NEED:
2 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tbsp The Groovy Food
Company Organic Virgin
Coconut Oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 red chillies, finely chopped
2 star anise
75ml honey or agave nectar
45ml maple syrup or dark
agave nectar
100ml apple juice
150ml ketchup
2kg chunky pork belly spare
ribs
METHOD: In a dry frying pan, toast the
spices over a low heat until they smell
fragrant, then crush them coarsely with a
pestle and mortar.
Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan and
gently fry the onion for 10 minutes.
Add the crushed spices with the garlic,
chillies and star anise, then cook for
another 2-3 minutes.
Transfer to a food processor and blend to
a paste, then mix in all the other ingredients
except for the ribs.
Put the ribs in a large plastic container,
then pour over the marinade, coating them
all over, and chill overnight. Pre-heat the
oven to 110C/fan 90C/gas �. Put the ribs in
a roasting tray, reserving the marinade.
Cover the tray with foil then cook for 4-5
hours or until the meat is really tender and
falling off the bone.
Meanwhile, bubble the marinade in a
small pan over a medium heat for 2-3
minutes until reduced and thickened.
Light your barbecue and when the ribs
are tender, finish them over the hot coals,
basting them with the reduced marinade,
until they are sticky all over.

for online dating but can you
really find love at the touch of

This week, intrepid Fabulous

a
TTiinnddeerreelllla
PSST! Over here. I?m hiding from Allain
on Badoo.
He keeps pestering me for video
chats and I?ve gone off the idea
completely.
It sounded fun after a few wines ? but
now he texts me every day about Round
Two and, well, it?s gross.
This is the problem with spontaneity
at 10 o?clock at night.
Allow me to describe the chat itself.
Allain is sitting in just his jeans on his
couch and I?m in a dress and full makeup on mine.
It?s a bit awks and stilted at first ? but
at least he?s too polite to whip out his
wang straight away.
I don?t know whether to be Sex Me or
not, though. Flirting from the off
suddenly seems a bit weird.
So instead I settle for polite interview
questions instead.
?Where do you live? What do you do
for a living? Do you enjoy that? Really,
that?s great ? it?s so important to do
something you love, eh??
I sound like I?m at a garden party
when this is supposed to be a pants
party.
Allain admits he?s living with his mum
at the moment as his dad died recently.
He says I?m really pretty.
I tell him how sorry I am to hear about
his dad and how hard that must be on
his family.
Basically, it was awful. I?m having a

About five minutes in, I chicken out
and say it?s time for bed but that it was
GREAT to chat to him.
He DMs me ten minutes later: ?I?m
glad you said hi.?
I reply: ?Me too. Sometimes you just
have to be brave, eh??
?I wasn?t expecting to find anyone so
goddamn HOT LOL. You in bed now??
?Ha, you say all the right things! And
not yet.?
?Lol get in bed. Send me a pic of you
all cosy in there.?
A pic of me all cosy in bed would
involve PJs, an I Love Marbs sweatshirt
and socks . . . but I don?t think that?s
what he has in mind.
?Maybe another time, A. I don?t do
selfies as a rule.? Lies.
The next day he messages me,
saying he?s off down the pub, but: ?Lol
if you a good girl we can have a video
chat before I go out lol.?
This man laughs out loud so often, he
must be an absolute nightmare for his
neighbours.
He adds: ?I am getting in the bath
wanna come lol?
I don?t reply. Later that night I miss a
video call from him at 1am.
Then another the following night.
I should probably just message him
the usual ?It?s not me, it?s *definitely*
you? get-rid excuse but I?m ghosting
him like a coward instead.
Eventually he?ll get bored, realise I?m

else for cosy bed selfies.

The sun and moon keep the mood fair and friendly between
people who are competing for jobs or prizes. When it comes to
falling in love, Venus finds honest hearts the most desirable,
while Mars tries to distract you with a newcomer who promises
unlimited passion balanced with plenty of laughter.
Mercury makes you a relentless fact-finder and aims, with Pluto,
the detective planet, to uncover cash secrets. It may make you
richer and reveal the glamorous past of two people you thought
you knew so well. As for your love life, the quiet moments of
togetherness show how much a relationship has progressed.
The moon at the heart of your chart brings a passion prospect
into your life who offers a rare blend of bold plans and a caring
style of love. A decision to learn new skills ? even return to fulltime education ? may be a surprise but the outcome could be so
good. Luck doubles when you buy a ticket with your relative.
Take a calm look at your working life, focus on what you want to
achieve, not the memories, and you?ll start to make progress.
With generous Jupiter organising your love life, if you?re single
there could be some exciting choices to make. Settled couples
discover working on a project together draws them even closer.
Even if you don?t see yourself as artistic, today you will be and it
shows in something you design. The Neptune effect gives you
all the right love moves. If you are ready for a new romance, then
when you meet someone with a gym-built body who wears
elegant suits, you know that you really could be lucky in love.
Mercury shines a light on your truth zone so you can judge love
feelings accurately, both your own and those of a partner. Still
looking? You first notice each other in a health food store. Work
plans get moving in an unexpected direction but you handle the
twists and turns on the route to success in winning style.
Your mind is clear, your emotions calm, just what?s needed for
important discussions about finances. Later, as passion-finder
Mars and affectionate Venus get busy, someone who dresses to
get noticed may not be your usual type but there?s passion
potential. Luck is linked to a text in three different languages.
Property plans that seem perfect to one section of the family can
leave the others cold. This could test relationships and you win
by keeping calm, no matter how moody others get. Single? Just
as you start to wonder if your soulmate really exists, you meet
and it?s an instant romance. Luck visits door number ?49?.
A poorly-paid job that inspires you competes with a lesssatisfying one that offers much more money. Decide if cash
security for you and loved ones is a higher priority than personal
fulfilment right now. The Venus effect could turn romance into a
more passionate, challenging and complete relationship.
The start of a relationship is the exciting and easier part but now
you?re ready for the greater challenge of staying in love ? and
you can do it. If you start the day single, a Virgo who works in the
medical world could be The One. Your business brain and a pal?s
vivid imagination could produce a money-making video game.
Stick to wise advice you are given about property and follow the
emotion you feel as you walk into a house for the first time. Is it
home? This is the daunting yet wonderful choice you?ll have to
make. No one is out of your league when it comes to love action.
Arrange a night out with friends and several of you find romance.
This could be a special time for love as you deal decisively with
the leftovers of the past. It can mean a fresh start for couples. Or
if you?re available, the most promising place to find someone
new is where dancers perform. The kind of luck the whole family
can share is linked to winning cars alongside cash prizes.

THEY are known for their
bare-chested, energetic
rock shows so it?s a
surprise to hear Biffy Clyro
enjoying the mundane
chores of everyday life
when we speak.
?It?s not very rock ?n? roll but
I?ve been getting our windows
replaced at home,? says singer
Simon Neil from his home in Ayr,
Scotland.
While bassist James Johnston is
busy doing some gardening. ?I?ve
just been mowing the lawn? he
laughs down the phone. ?With this
sunny weather, it?s finding that
balance between the hectic lifestyle and getting the barbecue on.
?After a couple of weeks of
touring, it?s the little things that
people take for granted that we
really long for.
?When I get home I just want
to make myself a piece of toast.
?So, today with the sun out in
Glasgow, it?s the chance I get to
cut the grass so I?m in heaven.?
House maintenance is a side of
the Scottish trio that fans might
not expect. With the lads just
back from playing in Australia
and New Zealand, we are on the
phone to talk about their new
acoustic album which relaunches
the
famous
MTV
Unplugged
series, made famous by the likes
of Nirvana, R.E.M, Pearl Jam,
George Michael and Oasis.
It was Nirvana?s legendary
and intense performance for
the show, filmed in New
York in November 1993,
that inspired Neil to say
yes to MTV. It was the first
Nirvana
album
released
following the death of frontman Kurt Cobain in 1994.
?I didn?t sleep
for two days
?I am a kid of the Nineties so
this series is a big deal for me,?
says Neil. ?It?s easy to forget that
when Nirvana got asked to do it
they were like a noisy rock band.
?It wasn?t an obvious thing for
them to do. Kurt was on drugs
and in tatters in that show and it
was the Nirvana one that really
changed my life in a lot of ways.
?Neil Young did a beautiful one,
and Springsteen did a nice one as
well. I also remember the Oasis
one where Liam was heckling
Noel from the balcony.?
Biffy?s show, filmed at North
London?s Roundhouse last November, was a proud moment for
singer and guitarist Neil, bassist
Johnston and his twin brother,
drummer
Ben,
as
it
shows
another side of the band who
formed as teens in 1995.
?As we play with our shirts off
and scream a lot, some people
think ?They are so angry?. But this
show gives our songs the chance
to breathe and people who don?t
know our music well may be
surprised by the songs? fragility.?
Johnston, aged 38 like Neil,
agrees and says: ?Maybe people
will hear the songs without having to look at our ugly bodies. It?s
a great chance to show the songs
in a different light, not the absolutely exhausted different light.
?And it was nice that they chose
us. The toughest thing for us was
picking which songs to play.?
One thing the band weren?t
expecting after their MTV performance was a bout of insomnia.

?I didn?t sleep for two days after
the show,? laughs Neil. ?After a
normal show, you are physically
exhausted with all the running
around stage.
?It?s so strange to come off not
sweating. It?s like I could play
another ten hours.?
Johnston admits there was more
pre-show anxiety this time and
worrying about what could go
wrong.
He says: ?There are less places
to hide if we make any mistakes.?
?In a big show, you can hide
behind the lights and turn your
back on the audience.
?We couldn?t do that because
they
were
all
around
us,
everywhere you looked there were
people staring at you and smiling.
What a beautiful experience it was.
?We were a bit more nervous
because there is a little bit more
of the unknown.?
?The nerves were rife,? says
Neil. ?But I felt a real wave of
relaxation when I saw the front
row was singing
along. I am really
critical
of
our
performances and
I
don?t
watch
myself
afterwards.
?Fortunately, on
the night I was
able to feel chilled
especially when I
saw faces of people
who have seen us play
for years from many parts
of the world, waving flags.?
The two songs that the pair
remember most from that night
are Bubbles, from their album
Only Revolutions and their cover
of The Beach Boys? God Only
Knows.
?We were a little bit cautious of
playing Bubbles to start with,?
says Johnston.
?Ben had suggested we gave it
a go so we did. It had a different
energy to it and was the one
song that we haven?t played
acoustically before.
It was a challenge
and we had to
re-record that one
but we did it.?
Performing God
Only Knows had
an emotional attachment for Neil.
?It was the first
dance at my wedding (to Francesca)
and the first tattoo I
had on my chest.
?I really wanted to make
sure it was a song that in five,
ten years would be just as important to me as it was the week we
were recording it.?
This year marks Biffy?s 23-year
anniversary and Neil says nothing
much has changed goal-wise for
him. ?It?s all about being on stage
playing songs. I?m no use for
anything else apart from picking
up a guitar and making a racket
for a living,? he says.
?It is the best feeling in the
the BIG
INTERVIEW
world and that?s why bands go
through a period when they try
and replicate it with drugs as it?s
pure chemistry in your body.
?It?s like anxiety. A lot of
people suffer with it on tour and
it?s not always your enemy, it?s
how you deal with it and we all
struggle to deal with it at points
in our lives. I have days when I
just want to close the curtains
and not do anything.?
In 2013, Neil had a breakdown
while in America and the band
were forced to cut short their
North American tour and return
to the UK immediately.
Today he says he is in a good
place and has learned to deal
with any stress.
?My
life
changed
when
I
discovered meditation,? he says.

get anxious ? we just remember
that we are all in it together then
we start panicking less. Our

Neil says: ?You can?t ever call
us lazy. We are the opposite of a
lazy band ? even when we are
off, we?re still working on something. We are recording 12 songs
for the movie and the director
Jamie Adams is coming to my
house for a chat about it. That
has taken our focus for the next
couple of months but then we
will be back on the new album.?
Johnston adds: ?It?s a great
opportunity for us to do something that has got our name on
it, but it?s not a Biffy Clyro
record. We can take a few risks.
?It?s not going to be songs that
are played on the radio or live.
It?s really quite exciting. We are
not even halfway through it, but
already I am definitely thinking
about it every time I go to sleep.?
The band are planning for their
next actual Biffy album to be
released early next year.
?We will be working on that
one from August. We are always
writing songs, we?ve got a bunch
already and are working through
?Some people go through the motions and that?s wrong. If you?re
not still excited by playing music then you shouldn?t be doing it?
NEW RELEASES
SHEKU KANNEH-MASON
TT is the name chosen by Theresa Wayman of Warpaint to launch her debut solo
outing.
She describes the album as pretty sexy
and a bit emotional.
She is right. And it is also a thing of
moody, pop beauty.
Opener Mykki is sparse with a sense of
expansive space and breathy vocals
which draw the listener into a soundscape
of synths and trip hop beats.
Atmospheric and spooky, Love Leaks
builds with an insistent piano line and
masterful dynamics and breakdowns.
Gentle, downtempo and
intimate, tracks like Tutorial
and The Dream create a
whimsical mood. Lovely stuff.
HHHH
HE?S the boy wonder cellist who wowed
millions of us watching Harry and Meghan
get hitched.
So it seems right to revisit Sheku?s
breakthrough debut album, a beautifully
realised snapshot of his favourite pieces.
The centrepiece is Russian composer
Shostakovich?s Cello Concerto No.1,
which won Sheku the coveted BBC Young
Musician prize and serves as a
glorious celebration of the young star?s
tone, dexterity and emotion.
For those of a less classical bent, he
tackles Leonard Cohen?s Hallelujah and
Bob Marley?s No Woman, No
Cry? familiar songs the
world
over
but
given
gorgeous makeovers here.
Inspiration indeed. HHHH

it,? says Johnston. ?It?s interesting
to see where it?s going to go. We
are a guitar rock band and we
are going to remain that ? but
we are not resting on our laurels.
We are not just going to turn off
and make another album, man.
We just want to keep making
music and having more ?pinch
yourself? moments ? like the
Unplugged night was.?
Neil adds: ?We are still growing
as a band and not a lot of bands
are still doing that after 23 years.
Our gigs are getting bigger and
playing live is when I feel most
liberated, I feel like a teenager. I
don?t want that to change and as
soon as that does change, then
it?s probably over.
?Some people just go through
the motions and that?s wrong.
?I?ve got friends that have been
playing music for as long as we
have and they aren?t as big, but
they still love doing what they
are doing. If you?re not still
excited you shouldn?t be doing it.
?A lot of people feel they are
entitled to the feeling and that
annoys me. I just want to punch
them in the f***ing face.?

WHILE not quite as star filled as
previous years, the Great Escape
remains a southern seaside haven of
new music gold.
With a plethora of venues spread
across the city ? from the secluded Old
Market in Hove to the mayhem of
Beach Club by the seaside ? there was
always something new and exciting to
explore.
Despite a label of being a little indie
heavy in recent years, there was great
diversity.
From the spoken word sobriety of
Dottie to the spiky post punk flavoured
psych rock exuberance of White Room.
There was a vibrancy and an excited
buzz around the city as the festival
atmosphere was bolstered by sunny
weather.

THE GREAT ESCAPE
Various venues, Brighton
closed Friday with a ferocious and
punchy display of their fem-rock that is
sure to make them famous,
SuperOrganism who brought quirky
synth pop soundscapes to an
overflowing Old Market and singersongwriter Jerry Williams who bathed
audiences in her deeply summery,
feel-good West Coast vibes at the fullto-bursting Komedia Studio Bar.
Despite lacking some of the bigger
names of last year, such as Cabbage
and Slaves, Great Escape 2018 proved
its ability to showcase the brightest
new talent in the UK and Europe and to
attract such large crowds, that there
were snakes of queuing people all over
Brighton.

HHHH
Jumpin? Jagger
joins immortals
THE expression ?rock god? was
practically invented for Mick Jagger.
Watching the preening peacock strut
his stuff at the Olympic Park?s London
Stadium this week, I got a real sense that
he just might be immortal.
With arms flailing, hands waving, body
gyrating, the Rolling Stones frontman
remains a singing, dancing, running and
Jumpin? Jack Flash.
Such is the 74-year-old?s astonishing
energy that it?s plain to see why he, Keith
Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie
Wood are not quite ready to light their
pipes and don their slippers.
Despite deserved status as the world?s
greatest rock band, the pressure is on for
the UK leg of the Stones? massive No
Filter tour.
Strangely, it?s not the biggest event in
music on these shores right now. That
honour belongs to Jagger?s recent lunch
buddy, tousle-haired troubadour Ed
Sheeran.
No Filter is an accurate description ?
four giant video screen pillars revealing
every craggy line on the band?s wonderfully lived-in visages.
It could even be called the Warts And
All Tour thanks to this honest portrayal of
four guys enjoying an Indian summer of
their careers with smiles on their faces
and, in Richards? case, with fag still in
hand.
As you?d expect, not everything was
perfect about the performance at West
Ham?s adopted home, the echoey sound
and Keith?s charmingly shambolic
couple of turns at the mic among them.
But the many plusses included an epic
beast of a Midnight Rambler ? the
sprawling blues favourite from 1969?s Let
It Bleed.
The Stones? blues credentials were
further enhanced by an earthy take on
Ride ?Em Down, one of the classic covers
on their recent triumph of an album Blue
& Lonesome.
We could expect precision drumming
from the coolest man on stage, Watts,
tasty licks from endearing Richards and
unsung hero Wood, but Jagger?s mouth
harp was a revelation.
There was also a suitably euphoric
rendition of psychedelic anthem You
Can?t Always Get What You Want ? cue
enthusiastic crowd chorus as the band
remained silent.
And it was great to hear Jagger?s soulful side on a sublime outing for Fool To
Cry from 1976?s underrated Black & Blue,
the first Stones album with Wood.
The band?s soul/disco vibe was in full
cry by the time of 1978?s Some Girls. Its
lead track, the sultry Miss You, was
another of Tuesday night?s most effective
inclusions.
They slipped back a further decade to
the mid-Sixties when the Stones were
arch chart rivals to The Beatles. A taut
Paint It Black, for which the set turns
monochromatic,
maintained
the
momentum but fan choice Under My
Thumb struggled to climb the gears.
The home stretch proved a risk-averse
barrage of the Stones? biggest bangers,
all performed with appropriate swagger.
No one was complaining about a run
of Start Me Up, Jumpin? Jack Flash,
Brown Sugar and encores of Gimme
Shelter and Satisfaction.
The crowd went home happy marvelling at force of nature Jagger but I
yearned for something a bit different.
Anyone for a Jagger/Richards duet on
Memory Motel?

EDIE
101mins (12A)
EDIE (Sheila Hancock) is a widow
left wondering what to do with her
newly-found freedom, so attempts a
pilgrimage to the summit of Suilven
mountain in the Scottish Highlands.
Along the way she meets young
Jonny ? a regular guy, who agrees
to help her in exchange for cash.
Half the film is quite a touching
account of death, ageing and
reflection, the other is some kind of
weird, naff gentle comedy about an
unlikely couple on an adventure.
The story is pushed and pulled by
these two premises and the latter
HH
spoils what could have been a
touching film. I was intrigued by her
relationship with her daughter, husband and father, yet it barely brushes
against them. I was left jarred.
Sheila Hancock is obviously
magnificent and can deal with films
like this in her sleep, but there must
have been times she raised a quiet
eyebrow to herself.
The stunning Scottish scenery is
the only other thing to come close
to her here and even that gets in the
way of the film?s strongest asset ? a
brilliant actor?s ode to old.

Out Monday
SCIENTISTS find a solution
to overpopulation and
dwindling resources ?
shrinking people to just five
inches tall. Matt Damon
and Kristen Wiig play the
hard-up couple eager to
leave their stressed lives
for a smaller existence.
There are big messages
about environmentalism
and the dangers of
consumer culture ? and at
times, the film can be a bit
preachy. But it is enjoyable,
thought-provoking and
keeps
heading off in
wholly
unexpected
directions.

93mins (12A)
THIS beautiful, powerful and quite
wonderful animated film tells the
story of Parvana, a young girl living
in Kabul under a Taliban regime.
When her handicapped father is
unfairly sent to prison, she is forced
to live her life as a boy in order to
feed the family (women are not
allowed to buy food, enter shops or
even leave the house without a man
as escort).
She finds her friend Shauzia living
the same double life and together
they embrace their new-found
freedom. In Pan?s Labyrinth-style

escapism, she often disappears into
the elaborate tales she dreams up
for her younger brother and is
determined to reunite her family
against the odds.
While this may not sound like your
cup of tea ? I urge you to give it a go.
It is thoughtful, wonderfully made
and tells a story we all need to hear,
whether we like it or not.
The only thing not imagined in this
fiction is the horror real-life people
are still going through. The Breadwinner reminds us of this in the most
direct and touching way possible.

YOU know immediately this
is an extremely different
Star Wars story ? whether it?s
the tone of speech or simply
the aesthetic.
Freed from the shackles of The
Force, or the mystery surrounding
the Skywalker genes, this origin
story appears as simple a premise
as we?re ever going to get.
It introduces us to Han as he
bombs around miserably fascist
planet Corellia on a landspeeder
with his girl by his side, causing all
sorts of mischief.
Eager to escape a dead-end
future, the pair devise a plan to
escape ? which does not go well.
What follows is part-heist, partwestern, part-Indiana Jones.
He teams up with a motley crew
headed by Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and Val (Thandie Newton) and
they

needing precious fuel to pay off a
debt to the villainous Dryden
(excellently played by Paul Bettany).
If you?re expecting another familiar, easy land-grab from Lucasfilm,
you?re in for a surprise.
While this certainly takes no
risks, it must have been a relief to
see it work well on screen.
There was obviously a bad feeling
about this film, which is why company boss Kathleen Kennedy famously sacked original directors Phil
Lord and Chris Miller in favour of
safe pair of hands Ron Howard.
This, plus huge reshoots and
claims of Harrison Ford-style acting
lessons for Alden Ehrenreich shows
meddling from the powers that be
is sometimes necessary. It has some
51
glorious set pieces ? incredible
fight scenes and double-crossing
cowboy stand-offs (although a few
too many false endings/twists).
The cast are predominantly very
good. Ehrenreich is ? to great relief
? up to the job. Ford?s wise-guy
routine is bubbling under, if not
quite at the level of grump we
know and love.
Huge revelation
Harrelson, Bettany and Newton
are worthy of a nod, tucking into
the scenery with aplomb.
Sadly
Phoebe
Waller-Bridge?s
droid L3 goes a bit wrong for me.
Aside from a glorious scene where
she ruminates over her relationship
with Lando, she is invisible.
Whether these are the scars left
by the previous directors we won?t
know, but somewhere along the way,
one of Britain?s funniest actors is
left awkwardly offering one-liners.
Maybe it?s the fact the whole film
is steamrollered by Lando and
Chewbacca. They don?t so much
steal every scene as demand it is
written about and around them.
Donald Glover?s take on Billy Dee
Williams? rogue Lando is simply glorious ? playing on his duplicitous
charm with delight.
Joonas Suotamo?s first full outing
as Chewie is fantastic.
Emotive and a treat to watch, his
origin and introduction to Han is
easily the best thing about the film.
There are a few links to the overall saga ? we see the infamous card
game and there is mention of Jabba.
And at the end, a huge revelation
will have fans punching the air in
delight.
As a standalone movie this is a
hell of a lot of fun, with just enough
of the old-school Star Wars magic to
satisfy the die hards.
Much like the Falcon itself, Solo is
rough around the edges but it?s one
hell of a trip.
SALT LANE ? William Shaw,
�.99. Awkward but clever
copper Alex Cupidi has to
deal with two suspicious
deaths on her desolate ?
and rather creepy ? coastal
patch in Dungeness, Kent.
One body is a mystery
woman found in a canal, the
other is an illegal North African migrant, forced into a
farm slurry pit and drowned.
But are they connected?
Shaw scores subtle political points in this atmospheric,
state-of-the-nation
thriller that, as always, features intricate plotting, realistic dialogue and believable
characters. A modern crime
master. 5
AMERICAN BY DAY ? Derek
B Miller, �.99. Norwegian
police officer Sigrid 豥eg錼d
heads to upstate New York
when her estranged brother
is implicated in the death of
a black rights campaigner.
What follows is a witty and

try to find him before triggerhappy cops do. Wry tale of
police attitudes to racism.4.5

Grimwood, �.99. 1986 and
MI6 agent Tom Fox is sent
to East Berlin to arrange for
an ageing defector to come
home before he dies. But
almost as soon as he gets
there, everything goes wrong.
Soon Fox is on the run from
the Stasi and his own side.
Gripping Cold War tale that
manages to be original as
well as give a nod to classic
John Le Carre. 4
DOWN THE RIVER UNTO

�. Joe King Oliver was
one of NYPD?s top detectives
until he was framed for
assaulting
a
woman.
A
decade on, he is scratching
a living as a PI and still bitter. Then the ?victim? emerges to say he was set up by
his white colleagues. Gritty
tale of racism by crusading
writer Mosley. 3.5
THE PRICE YOU PAY ?
Aidan Truhen, �.99. A
smart alec New York cocaine
dealer discovers there?s a hit
out on him and decides the
best course of action is to
take bloody ? and amusingly
creative ? revenge. Cartoony
and very violent Tarantinoesque tale by an apparently famous author hiding
behind a pseudonym. 3
1974, 1977, 1980, 1983 ?
David Peace, �99 each.
Reissue
of
four
modern
crime classics known as the
Red Riding Quartet. Peace?s
tough, often shocking, factbased books focus on police
and council corruption during
the Seventies hunt for the
Yorkshire Ripper. Brilliant. 5
GERVASE FEN MYSTERIES

Christie you will enjoy these
republished mysteries from
the 1940s about an Oxford
professor who keeps stumbling
across
complicated
murders and having to help
dimwitted
coppers
solve
them. Witty and fun. 4

STAFF AT

9.3% RISE
RETAIL
1
THE majority of shop
workers at SAINSBURY?S
are to get a pay rise in
return for the chain
changing the terms of
their contracts.
From September, pay will
rise from �to �20 an
hour, up an average of 9.3
per cent for 121,000 staff.
But the removal of paid
breaks, the annual bonus
and Sunday and bank
holiday pay means 9,000
staff will suffer a net pay
cut of �0 per year on
average.
A handful of longstanding workers who will
lose up to �000 a year
will get top-up payments
over the next 18 months
to lessen the blow.
Retail and operations
director Simon Roberts
said: ?The changes will
make pay and contracts
fair and consistent for all,
regardless of age or length
of service.?
The overhaul, which will
cost �0million, follows
consultation with 100 staff
representatives.
But Labour MP Siobhain
McDonagh, who has led a
campaign against change,
said: ?It?s not right. It?s
not British to ask people
to work well for less.?
B&Q GETS
BEASTING
RETAIL
2
SALES at B&Q were
pummelled in the first
quarter as the retailer had
to close stores in the face
of the Beast from the
East?s snow and ice.
Figures from parent
company KINGFISHER show
that like-for-like sales in
the three months to April
30 dropped nine per cent.
Total sales at B&Q in
the period also fell, by 8.8
per cent to �8million.
Kingfisher boss
Veronique Laury said weak
consumer demand also
dented performance. She
added: ?Market conditions
continue to be mixed.?
SHOES IN

VALUE retailer SHOE ZONE
has defied the woes on
the high street by more
than trebling profits in the
first half of the year.
The group posted a pretax profit of �5,000 in
six months, compared with
�9,000 in the same
period in 2017.
Boss Nick Davis said
Shoe Zone has been able
to take ?advantage of the
favourable retail rental
environment?, a reference
to the wider malaise
afflicting the sector.
He also hailed the firm?s
lease management strategy
and new store openings.

PETRA

back a rescue rights issue

Petra owns the Cullinan
mine in South Africa,
famous for producing
one of the diamonds
in
the
Imperial
State Crown, worn
by the Queen, right.
The London-listed
miner ? hobbled by
production delays,
strikes and the
strong South African rand ? wants
to boost its balance sheet and
reduce debt.
Shares in Petra
fell 20 per cent
on the news.
The

a 49,000 fall the previous year.

Sir Charles Dunstone is turning around the telecoms firm
despite a full-year loss.
TalkTalk
now
has
4.1million
customers, including adding a record
109,000 in the last quarter.
CEO Tristia Harrison said the firm
was progressing well on sustaining
growth while simplifying the business.
The group rang up full-year losses of
�million as it counted the �9million
cost of its overhaul. This compared
with a �million profit the year before.
Costs aside, earnings tumbled to
�3million in the year to March 31,
down from �1million the previous
year. Revenues fell four per cent to
�7billion.
The firm stuck by targets to return to
underlying earnings and revenue growth
in the new financial year.
Russ Mould, of AJ Bell,
said:
?Full-year
results
contain
lots
of
positive
comments. But the dividend
has been cut by 61 per cent
and the business is lossmaking
when
looking
at

Delighted Mr Dardis said
of
the

?From our perspective, the

Fran Berry guides
Magic Circle to
Sandown success
And
trainer
Ian
Williams admitted to
being amazed by the
performance
his
Chester Cup hero
conjured up in the
Henry II Stakes.
Bookies reacted by
halving his odds for
the Melbourne Cup
from 40-1 in to 20s.
But he may have a
top-level target to
aim at before a trip
Down Under.
Bet Victor made him
a 20-1 shot for the
Ascot Gold Cup and
By TOM PEPPER
Williams said: ?It was our
plan to come here and we
hoped to be placed and look
at going to the Melbourne
Cup with him.
?What we do between
now and then has probably
changed a little around
today. It has taken me
aback a little.
?I didn?t think winning a
Chester Cup would be
beyond him, but what he
has achieved today has
really announced him as a
stayer on the big scene.?
Poet?s Word justified odds
of 4-6 with an easy success
under Ryan Moore in the
Brigadier Gerard Stakes.

TEMPLEGATE?S TOP TIPS
(nap) looks poised to strike in Bath?s 3.20.
H JUNEAU
She bumped into well-weighted Neverbeen To Paris
at Beverley last time, having shown promise in maidens.
The drop in class will help Mark Johnston?s filly.
SAVANNAH MOON (8.30 Pontefract, nb)
made a winning return over course and
distance. This is her best trip and the forecast
rain would not trouble her one bit.
FELINE GROOVY (3.30 Haydock, treble)
made a promising debut when runner-up at
Newmarket last month. She came from further
back than ideal but finished clear of the third.

MONACO GRAND PRIX: 2 DAYS TO GO
Ferrari
?cheat?
probe
LEW DEAL IS
?GROTESQUE?
LEWIS
HAMILTON?S
failure to sign a new
Mercedes contract is
due to his ?grotesque?
demands, claims rival
boss Christian Horner.
Hamilton, 33, is stalling
on a mega �0million
three-year
extension
despite insisting it would
be signed before the season-opener in Melbourne.
Red Bull boss Horner
taunted Merc chief Toto
Wolff, saying: ?A delay can
only involve money.
?I should think it?s such
a grotesque amount that
Toto?s talking about, it
probably
is
what?s
making his eyes water
at the moment.
?Lewis has an
expensive lifestyle.
?He?s a four-time
world
champion
and I doubt he?s
cheap. I can only
envisage
that?s
probably
got
something
to
do with the
delay.?
But
Wolff
From BEN HUNT
hit back, insisting he fully
expects Hamilton (below)
to remain with his team.
The German said: ?It?s a
funny situation because we
have been discussing it for
a long time.
?We get together, sort
things out and then get
busy
in
our
daily
operation jobs ? us on the
team side and Lewis on
his preparation.
?It shows we have great
confidence in each other,
nobody is pressuring the
other. We haven?t set a
fixed date where we want
to announce but I don?t
see a reason why this
shouldn?t happen.
?It?s in the process
of just closing. There
is a bit of an email
ping-pong on details.
?I don?t want to set a
date but maybe we
will choose one of
the
nice
grands prix
in the next
couple of
months.?
NO PROBLEM . . . Ferrari
driver Vettel says he is not
concerned by the talk
POWER BOOST
TROUBLES RIVALS
FERRARI are at the centre of a
Monaco ?cheat? storm.
Rival teams believe the Italian
outfit may have an illegal power
boost system on their cars.
And it is understood the sport?s
governing
body,
the
FIA,
has
ordered Ferrari to fit additional
computer hardware for the Monaco
Grand Prix to prevent any illegal
use of F1?s Energy Recovery System.
Mercedes chief Toto Wolff said: ?It
is the obligation of teams to comply
with regulations and this is an
ongoing process.
?Legality topics come up regularly.
Some are more controversial but it?s
the daily business of the FIA to
check what the teams do.
?I have great confidence with
whatever issues are coming up, be it
on the engine or the chassis, the
FIA has been on top of it a lot.?
Red Bull boss Christian Horner
added: ?There have been rumours
that people are cottoning onto.
?I?m sure the FIA has all the
competence to be able to measure,
administer and look at the car that?s
presented for scrutinising during a
grand prix weekend and it is the
team?s obligation to ensure that
happens.?
The ERS system is essentially a
From BEN HUNT in Monte Carlo
battery pack that recovers energy
and redeploys it through a motor at
the press of a button.
F1?s rules limit the level of the
power boost but teams believe
Ferrari may have found a loophole.
FIA race director Charlie Whiting
does not believe Ferrari, who won
the first two races and have scored
three poles in a row this season,
have done anything wrong.
Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was
unfussed
by
the
speculation,
claiming it was ?normal? for teams
to come under scrutiny.
He said: ?Obviously we heard
about it but it?s normal that every
now and then you have something
popping up. This time it?s us, but in
four weeks? time it will be for
someone else.
?Ultimately I think it?s the FIA?s
job to look after it and we trust
them as much as the other teams
trust them. But that?s it, it?s pretty
straightforward. I think the talk is
more from outside rather than stuff
we discuss inside.?
Ferrari currently trail Mercedes by
27
points
in
the
Constructors?
Championship, with Red Bull 46
further back in third.
WHAT IS THE ENERGY RECOVERY SYSTEM?
WHAT IS ERS?
The ERS system recovers energy
from a car?s braking in the same
way as a hybrid road car does.
It also recovers it from its
turbocharger. That energy then
charges a battery in the car, which
a driver can use to provide an
additional 160bhp for approximately
33 seconds per lap.
WHAT CAN THE FIA DO?
The FIA will continue to monitor
Ferrari?s system. While their powers
are limitless, they say they will
clarify the rulebook if they need to.

Giro low
for Yates
Few home
truths for
our Jamie
By IAN GORDON
SIMON YATES clung on
to the lead at the Giro
d?Italia despite cracking
on the final climb.
The Bury-born rider?s
advantage
over
Tom
Dumoulin was halved to
just 28 seconds with two
mountain stages to come.
Yates, 25, was dropped
for the first time in the
Giro when Chris Froome
attacked around a mile
from the summit of stage
18 at Prato Nevoso.
The
Mitchelton-Scott
rider, who has held the
pink jersey for 12 days,
admitted: ?I didn?t have
great legs but I?m still in
front so it?s all good.
?It was only the one
climb ? the next couple
of days will be different.?
Yates went with Dutchman Dumoulin when the
defending champ attacked
but had no reply as fellow
Brit Froome accelerated.
The duo were 28 seconds
ahead
of
Yates
along with Italy?s Domenico Pozzovivo, who is
third 2min 43sec adrift.
Froome, in fourth 39
seconds further back, said:
?The race is still on.?

By DAVID
FACEY
The world No 8 was far
from happy after it caused
him to hit a poor second shot
into the par-five 18th green at
Wentworth.
Having smashed a 318-yard
drive down the last, he failed
to get up and down for a
birdie yet still shot an impressive five-under-par 67, which
left him two shots behind
first-round leader Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark.
McIlroy, 29, had cooled
down slightly by the time he
signed his card.
But he said: ?No, I wouldn?t
say that photographer would
have been dead from the look
I gave him ? not quite anyway!
?It was a tough enough shot
over the water without that
going off. But these things
happen. I?m sure he didn?t
mean to do it.?
McIlroy?s glare came after
the camera click on his backswing ruined his chances of
hitting the green in two.
He was actually lucky his
shot rebounded back into play
off a tree and he should have
got his four anyway after
chipping to four feet.

THE VOICE OF BOXING
TERRY LAWLESS produced six world
champions from East London and
regarded anywhere outside the sound of
Bow Bells as a foreign trip.
If the trainer had his way, Frank Bruno,
Jim Watt and the rest of his stars would not
have had to travel more than a couple of
miles from his Canning Town gym to appear
at York Hall, Bethnal Green.
Lawless, who died nine years ago, understood the advantages to the comforts of home.
That?s where there are fewer distractions,
and certainly less aggravations, than having
to go abroad to experience a strange and
unfriendly environment.
There is no doubt that boxers who fight in
front of their own fanatical supporters are
given a tremendous psychological boost.
Mentally, it can mean they start a couple
of rounds ahead of their opponent.
Josh Warrington, roared on by 25,000 of
his noisy neighbours, gave Lee Selby a nonstop battering to relieve the Welshman of his
IBF world featherweight title at Leeds
United?s Elland Road ground last weekend.
Barry McGuigan in Belfast, Joe Calzaghe
in Cardiff, Ricky Hatton in Manchester, Watt
in Glasgow and Bruno at Wembley were all
inspired by hometown hero-worship.
That?s why triple world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua insists his unification
battle with Deontay Wilder must take place
in Britain and not the US. Promoter Eddie
Hearn claims AJ is prepared is sacrifice
�million to ensure that happens.
So British fight folk should spare a
thought for Jamie McDonnell.
While we are eating our lunch today, he
will be defending his WBA world bantamweight title 6,000 miles away in Tokyo.
If that isn?t a daunting enough prospect,
McDonnell?s challenger is Naoya Inoue, a
little guy with a massive reputation the size
of a sumo wrestler.
Inoue, 25, is barely 5ft 5in but is known as
The Monster in Japan because of his devastating power and sickening body-punching.
He won the WBC world light-flyweight
title in only his third pro fight. Two contests
later, he added the WBO world junior
bantamweight crown.
Unbeaten Inoue has scored 13 of his 15
victories by knockout and intends to take out
McDonnell as speedily as possible.
Jamie, 32, making the eighth defence of his
belt, is unphased about what is facing him.
The Doncaster veteran said: ?I don?t even
know Inoue?s first name but I?m told he is
the next best thing out of Japan.
?He is vicious and spiteful but he has
hardly been taking on superstars. I don?t
understand why people are scared of him.?
Having covered a couple of Mike Tyson
fights in Tokyo 30 years ago, I believe Jamie
will find that the Japanese crowd will probably treat him with politeness not hostility.
If McDonnell can beat Inoue, he is entitled
to be acclaimed an honorary Samurai before
he leaves the Land of the Rising Sun.
But it wasn?t Terry Lawless who wrote:
?People are usually the happiest at home.?
It is attributed to William Shakespeare!

Kicker?s

NICOLAS KICKER faces a

after being found guilty of
two match-fixing offences.
The Argentine, 25, who

Kicker has played in
all four Grand Slam

But the clay-court

or move the pieces, but the outcome
remains the same. They are often
rubbish at batting.
The new-look order, with Joe Root and
Jonny Bairstow promoted and Jos Buttler
recalled, tamely crumbled on the opening
day of the international summer.
Pakistan?s skilled seam and swing bowlers
exploited helpful conditions and swept England
aside for 184 all out in just 58.2 overs at Lord?s.
It was not quite the rubble of Auckland in
March ? when England were reduced to 27-9 by
New Zealand ? but it was a miserable effort.
Certainly not the start new chief selector Ed
Smith was expecting.
And definitely not the way to erase memories of
a harrowing winter, during which England lost
five of their seven Test matches.
Nobody was more culpable than captain Root,
himself, as he unnecessarily chased a very wide
Hasan Ali delivery and edged a catch behind
after scoring just four in 24 balls.

training and improved fitness from his players. But
all the muscles in the world are worthless if you
play daft shots.
And Root will surely rue his decision to bat first
on an overcast morning after plenty of rain fell
during the night.
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was happy ?
because he quickly admitted he would have
bowled first.
The tourists then finished day one of the First
Test on 50-1 and already dreaming of an unlikely
victory.
For England, Alastair Cook was solid and Bairstow
and Ben Stokes promised something worthwhile
before flattering to deceive. The rest scarcely merit
a mention.
Mohammad Abbas, offering accuracy, a probing
length and fingertip control, took four wickets, as
did the skiddy, slippery Hasan.
The ball swung significantly at times and
England?s batsmen did not possess the technique to
repel the movement. Opener Mark Stoneman,
already under pressure after failing to reach 30 for
Surrey this season, missed one from Abbas that
nipped through the gate.
The Geordie left-hander, 30, now probably has
three more innings in this series to save his
England career.
For some reason best known to himself, Root
aimed a massive drive at a ball from Hasan that
was almost a metre wide of the stumps.
He edged and wicketkeeper Sarfraz caught.
Root (right) has agreed to move up to No 3 in the
order on a permanent basis after months of
coaxing from head coach Trevor Bayliss.
But the position brings even greater responsibility and he surely cannot afford more
wafts like that.
Dawid Malan, stuck on the crease, could
not get his bat out of the line of another
ball from Hasan then Bairstow, elevated
two slots to No 5, fell to a beauty from
Faheem Ashraf that moved up the slope.
Left-armer Mohammad Amir found a way
through the defence of left-hander Cook,
but not before the former skipper showed
ten times the form and fluency he
displayed recently in New Zealand on his way to a
148-ball 70.
His feet were moving and he even unfurled some
glorious cover drives.
In his first home Test since the infamous
incident in a Bristol street last September, Stokes
batted with some authority and struck spinner
Shadab Khan for the only six of the day ?? a
mighty hoick over mid-wicket.
But, on 38, Stokes perished lbw on review and
then Buttler, following his instructions to be
aggressive no matter what, slashed in the next over
and was superbly held at second slip by Asad
Shafiq for 14.
England?s innings tailed off rapidly as
debutant Dominic Bess edged an attempted
drive to slip, Stuart Broad was nailed leg
before second ball and Mark Wood spliced
an attempted pull to mid-on.
The final six wickets fell for 16 runs.
Broad boosted England hopes when he
had Imam-ul-Haq lbw for four and Haris
Sohail should have been held by Malan at
second slip off Wood ? but Stokes put him
off by diving right in front of him.

The Cottagers have been lauded for

STAR?S
SHOCK . . . Gayle surprised by Shelvey KO
?Wrong to
Shelv Jon?
By PAUL JIGGINS
DWIGHT GAYLE says England have
missed a trick by not taking his
Newcastle pal Jonjo Shelvey to the
World Cup.
And the striker insists fiery Shelvey
can keep his cool at a major finals ?
even if he does like to slide tackle
kids in garden kickabouts!
Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate
did not even name Shelvey on his
standby list for Russia, despite the
Toon midfielder?s impressive displays
this year.
Gayle, 27, said: ?I am close friends
with Jonjo and he was upset he
didn?t make it.
?Me and a lot of the boys were
surprised because he offers something
different to some of the players there.
?He should have been called up
and England have missed out.?
Southgate said he did not pick
Shelvey because of his playing style
and claimed other players are ?better?
than the former Liverpool star.
But Gayle insisted: ?Jonjo?s range of
passes, one touches and thought
process are a lot quicker than the
other players.
?And while he is not the biggest
guy you don?t often see him getting
pushed off the ball because he is so
forward-thinking in possession.?
Many on Tyneside think Shelvey ?
who got two red cards in the first
four months of the season ? was left
out for disciplinary reasons.
Gayle said: ?It?s just his will to win
that might make people see him as a
bit aggressive.
?Last weekend we were in the
garden with the lads and some of
their kids were having a kickabout.
?Then Jonjo joined in and started
flying into them with full-on tackles!?
Gayle is confident Shelvey, 26, will
get over his snub. He said: ?He will
be fine. He knows what he has to do
? he needs to keep progressing.
?He is still a young lad and has
not yet reached his potential.?

missus is buzzing to get rid

?No, they?re great and I?d

?I finish a game and
whether I played well or
didn?t, I can switch off.
?I literally have no outside
distractions. I?m a family
man ? I?ve only got about
three friends! If you think
about what goes on outside
of your bubble it could drive
you mental, couldn?t it??
So while England were
humbled by Iceland at Euro
2016 and finished bottom of
their group in Brazil four
years ago, Delph was not
mentally scarred by those
failures because he barely
saw any of the action.
He added: ?It?s hard to
watch England with my family because I put absolutely
everything into what I do
with Manchester City on a
daily basis, I?m very intense.
?I don?t neglect them but
there?s times when I can?t
do as much with them
because I have to make sure
my preparation is spot-on.
?Once the season is finished I try my hardest to
switch off. I saw snippets of
the last World Cup but it?s
like an agreement I have
with my missus and kids ?
no football!
?I?m on holiday, doing
stuff with my girls, letting
them paint my nails pink
and all that stuff, putting
things on my head . . . ?
Even if England go all the
way to the final in Moscow
on July 15 it is unlikely
Delph will be scrambling for
VIP tickets.
Natalie is expecting their
third child on June 30 ? two
days after England?s potentially-defining
final
group
game against Belgium and
three or four days before a
potential last-16 match.
With a grin, he added:
?They?d probably rather not
go, even to the final. With
the baby due on June 30 it?s
a tricky time.
?We?re not 100 per cent
certain if I?d go home for the
birth because the last group
game is on the 28th.
?There might be an opportunity to fly back and then
get back fast. Gareth has
been absolutely fantastic.
?There?s not just me, there?s
Phil Jones as well. I think
his wife?s expecting before
the tournament begins.
?There?s
nothing
more
important than family to me,

so if I have an opportunity
to get back I will.

?There?s a few Yorkies in
the squad but they?re posh
Yorkshiremen
like
Stones,
who?s from Barnsley but he?s
neglected his roots. I?m Bradford ? reet proper Yorkshire.?
Delph?s delight at being
selected for Russia was in
stark contrast to his despair
at missing out on Euro 2016
because of a groin injury.
He said: ?It?s one extreme
to the other. I played in most
of the England games in the
build-up to Euro 16 and was
quite confident I?d get a seat.
?But I was hit and miss
that season in terms of injuries and didn?t really get
going. I wasn?t able to showcase what I could do in my
first season at City because I
wasn?t playing regularly, so I
can completely understand
why I didn?t make the squad.
?I was devastated at the
time. It was a hard summer.
?But I have great people
around me. I?m a family man
and my only focus was on
them.?
GARETH DUB MIX
ENGLAND fans could have trips to Dublin and Rome if Gareth
Southgate?s side get on the Euro 2020 glory trail.
Uefa have finally confirmed the match schedule for the
finals, which will see games played in 12 cities across Europe.
If England qualify, their group clashes should be at Wembley.
The semi-finals and final are also under the Arch.
But if all goes to plan, Southgate?s men would travel to
Dublin?s Aviva Stadium for their last-16 tie and then face a
quarter-final at Rome?s Stadio Olimpico.

from mastering the most difficult, the
most challenging, the most arduous
competition in European club football
for a third successive season.
A hat-trick of Champions League
successes would set Zinedine Zidane?s
side apart. Better than the Real
Madrid side inspired by Alfredo Di
Stefano, who won the European Cup
five times in a row when the competition launched in the 1950s.
Better than the Liverpool teams who
dominated the competition in the late
1970s and early 1980s, when they
triumphed over Borussia Monchengladbach, Club Brugge, Real and Roma.
Better, even, than the Barcelona side
coached by Frank Rijkaard when they
beat Arsenal in 2006 and then refined
by Pep Guardiola in 2009 and 2011.
They were all outstanding but the
pressure placed on Real?s players at the
start of each season is extraordinary.
The Spanish club are expected to
win this trophy, placing it above their
own domestic league title in terms of
importance.
To travel across Europe, to come
through six group games followed by
the perils of knockout football, is the
ultimate test for the modern player.
The great Madrid side of the 1950s
needed just seven games to win it
(with the exception of one-off play-offs
on the trophy. It is relentless.
The demands inside that Real
Madrid dressing room, with the
history of this club and the constant
reminders of their illustrious predecessors, are extraordinary.
Everybody is out to beat them.
To keep coming back for more in
the modern era, when the trappings
of fame and fortune can distract and
destabilise the best players, is unique.
Real, operating under those intolerable demands, are a remarkable force.
The final is Cristiano Ronaldo?s
stage, the only player in Champions
League history to score in 11 successive games in this tournament. Even
at 33, his appetite is undimmed.
In the centre of midfield, the ball
works overtime when Toni Kroos and
Luka Modric are in possession. As a
pairing, they are unrivalled.
Sergio
Ramos,
who
would
be
regarded the best defender in the history of the sport had he not been sent
off 24 times, is the security blanket.
The motivation is remarkable.
The Champions League is their
competition, taking ownership of it
with a penalty shootout victory over
Atletico Madrid in 2016 and a 4-1 win
over Juventus last season.
Real Madrid come alive in Europe.
The route to this final has been
They came through unscathed, beating big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain,
last season?s finalists Juve and Bayern
Munich in the semi-final.
Ronaldo?s overhead kick in the
Juventus Stadium, beating the great
Gianluigi Buffon with one of the best
goals of his career, was a jawdropping moment.
Juve?s fans acted on impulse, rising
from their seats to applaud one of the
most dedicated sportsmen of all time.
He had earned it.
So, too, have Real Madrid as they
close in on this achievement.
Zizou, their ice-cool head coach,
only won this trophy once as a player,
scoring a belter for the Galacticos in
a 2002 final against Bayer Leverkusen.
Whatever the misgivings about his
coaching ability, his players will be
immortalised if they win tomorrow.
At some stage someone will stop
them. Liverpool, five-time winners of
the ultimate prize in club football,
stand in their way of a staggering
13th European Cup triumph in Kiev.
Nobody outside of Anfield seems to
fancy them. Real look so comfortable
in this environment, soaking it all up
and preparing to finish the job before
they all head off to the World Cup.
By then, these boys could be the
greatest of all time.

Harry Kane was confirmed as the country?s
captain for the World Cup.
Kane, who was formally appointed by
Gareth Southgate when the squad got
together at the start of the week, is
guaranteed to start every game in Russia.
Although Jordan Henderson?s leadership
skills, which include captaining Liverpool
to tomorrow?s Champions League final,
impressed Southgate, his place will come
under pressure as the tournament evolves.
Loftus-Cheek (left) played on the left of
Crystal Palace?s midfield in the second half
of the season and Southgate expects him
to compete with Henderson for his spot.
England?s head coach is determined to
explore all his midfield options before the
start of the World Cup and Loftus-Cheek
will get his chance next week.
Henderson is due a rest after the
Champions League final, which opens up
the possibility of Southgate experimenting
in midfield against Nigeria next Saturday.

But dig deeper and the

a lot more in common than
you might think.
Both Ronaldo, 33, and Salah,
25,
come
from
footballing
backwaters ? one the island of
Madeira, the other a village
north of Cairo.
They earn many millions but
share their wealth with various

some of their projects secret,
which clearly proves they are
not doing it for public relations purposes.
And both have scored 44
goals this season!

who the majority of Egypt?s

Salah comes from the village
of Nagrig, 80 miles from the
capital Cairo.
But his face is everywhere in
Egypt ? on billboards, Ramadan lanterns, planes and even
credit cards.
Salah, who is paid around
�,000 a week by Liverpool,
has his own foundation.
He has previously donated
more than �0,000 for projects including hospitals.
And he funds a scheme
which distributes food to the
poor ? mainly orphans and
widows ? at a cost of �500 a
month.
Now, the forward is building
a
religious
school,
costing
�0,000, to give boys and
girls an education without
extremism.
But despite his face being
plastered everywhere in the
north African country, Salah
rarely speaks in public. Brief

Salah chose to avoid Liverpool?s media day this week but

The PFA event, which saw
him voted for the top award
by his peers, was shown live

?As a man, usually players

?That?s why I like Salah

Yet Salah also has a tough
side, as he has proved in his

image rights.
He was unhappy at the use
of a huge picture of himself
on the team plane.

Ronaldo, who hails from

By TIM VICKERY
ROBERTO FIRMINO has had a
sparkling Champions League
campaign but Liverpool?s star
will be brought down to earth
when he joins up with Brazil.
This is because he is down

League rival Gabriel Jesus.

Tite
views
Manchester City?s 21-year-old
whizkid Jesus ? with nine
goals in 15 games for his
country ? as his first choice.
But having played a key role
in the Reds? intrepid march to
tomorrow?s Champions League
final against Real Madrid in
Kiev, the Brazilian public are
starting to notice Firmino.
After a promising season in
Brazil?s second division with
Figueirense, German outfit
Hoffenheim took a chance on
the raw 19-year-old in 2010.
Ex-Liverpool winger and pal
at Hoffenheim Ryan Babel said:
?He likes to do nice things
with the ball but in Germany
he learned how to work without the ball and defend.?
Those ?nice things? brought
him into the Brazil squad in
2014. But Dunga gave up on
him after the quarter-final exit
in the 2015 Copa America.
He was not seen again until
a World Cup qualifier, at home
to Bolivia in October 2016,
when he came off the bench
to score with a header.
By that time Tite was coach
and the decision to recall
Firmino was fiercely criticised.
The following March, with
Jesus injured, Firmino started
against Uruguay and Paraguay.
Yet even wins of 4-1 and 3-0
did not leave everyone happy.
Former Brazil ace Edmundo
said: ?For me he was one of
the worst on the field.? He
argued that the back-up to
Jesus should be a targetman.
Many in Brazil agreed and
felt Firmino (below), 26,
should NOT be included.
But one outstanding Champions League campaign later,

THE VOICE OF BOXING
TERRY LAWLESS produced six world
champions from East London and
regarded anywhere outside the sound of
Bow Bells as a foreign trip.
If the trainer had his way, Frank Bruno,
Jim Watt and the rest of his stars would not
have had to travel more than a couple of
miles from his Canning Town gym to appear
at York Hall, Bethnal Green.
Lawless, who died nine years ago, understood the advantages to the comforts of home.
That?s where there are fewer distractions,
and certainly less aggravations, than having
to go abroad to experience a strange and
unfriendly environment.
There is no doubt that boxers who fight in
front of their own fanatical supporters are
given a tremendous psychological boost.
Mentally, it can mean they start a couple
of rounds ahead of their opponent.
Josh Warrington, roared on by 25,000 of
his noisy neighbours, gave Lee Selby a nonstop battering to relieve the Welshman of his
IBF world featherweight title at Leeds
United?s Elland Road ground last weekend.
Barry McGuigan in Belfast, Joe Calzaghe
in Cardiff, Ricky Hatton in Manchester, Watt
in Glasgow and Bruno at Wembley were all
inspired by hometown hero-worship.
That?s why triple world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua insists his unification
battle with Deontay Wilder must take place
in Britain and not the US. Promoter Eddie
Hearn claims AJ is prepared is sacrifice
�million to ensure that happens.
So British fight folk should spare a
thought for Jamie McDonnell.
While we are eating our lunch today, he
will be defending his WBA world bantamweight title 6,000 miles away in Tokyo.
If that isn?t a daunting enough prospect,
McDonnell?s challenger is Naoya Inoue, a
little guy with a massive reputation the size
of a sumo wrestler.
Inoue, 25, is barely 5ft 5in but is known as
The Monster in Japan because of his devastating power and sickening body-punching.
He won the WBC world light-flyweight
title in only his third pro fight. Two contests
later, he added the WBO world junior
bantamweight crown.
Unbeaten Inoue has scored 13 of his 15
victories by knockout and intends to take out
McDonnell as speedily as possible.
Jamie, 32, making the eighth defence of his
belt, is unphased about what is facing him.
The Doncaster veteran said: ?I don?t even
know Inoue?s first name but I?m told he is
the next best thing out of Japan.
?He is vicious and spiteful but he has
hardly been taking on superstars. I don?t
understand why people are scared of him.?
Having covered a couple of Mike Tyson
fights in Tokyo 30 years ago, I believe Jamie
will find that the Japanese crowd will probably treat him with politeness not hostility.
If McDonnell can beat Inoue, he is entitled
to be acclaimed an honorary Samurai before
he leaves the Land of the Rising Sun.
But it wasn?t Terry Lawless who wrote:
?People are usually the happiest at home.?
It is attributed to William Shakespeare!

Kicker?s

By MARTIN LIPTON
NICOLAS KICKER faces a

after being found guilty of
two match-fixing offences.
The Argentine, 25, who
was due at next week?s
French Open, was found
guilty of contriving two
match outcomes on the
2015 ATT Challenger Tour.
Kicker has played in
all four Grand Slam

Wimbledon last year.
But the clay-court
specialist has been suspended after also being
found guilty of failing to
report a corrupt approach

or move the pieces, but the outcome
remains the same. They are often
rubbish at batting.
The new-look order, with Joe Root and
Jonny Bairstow promoted and Jos Buttler
recalled, tamely crumbled on the opening
day of the international summer.
Pakistan?s skilled seam and swing bowlers
exploited helpful conditions and swept England
aside for 184 all out in just 58.2 overs at Lord?s.
It was not quite the rubble of Auckland in
March ? when England were reduced to 27-9 by
New Zealand ? but it was a miserable effort.
Certainly not the start new chief selector Ed
Smith was expecting.
And definitely not the way to erase memories of
a harrowing winter, during which England lost
five of their seven Test matches.
Nobody was more culpable than captain Root,
himself, as he unnecessarily chased a very wide
Hasan Ali delivery and edged a catch behind
after scoring just four in 24 balls.

ETHERIDGE
training and improved fitness from his players. But
all the muscles in the world are worthless if you
play daft shots.
And Root will surely rue his decision to bat first
on an overcast morning after plenty of rain fell
during the night.
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was happy ?
because he quickly admitted he would have
bowled first.
The tourists then finished day one of the First
Test on 50-1 and already dreaming of an unlikely
victory.
For England, Alastair Cook was solid and Bairstow
and Ben Stokes promised something worthwhile
before flattering to deceive. The rest scarcely merit
a mention.
Mohammad Abbas, offering accuracy, a probing
length and fingertip control, took four wickets, as
did the skiddy, slippery Hasan.
The ball swung significantly at times and
England?s batsmen did not possess the technique to
repel the movement. Opener Mark Stoneman,
already under pressure after failing to reach 30 for
Surrey this season, missed one from Abbas that
nipped through the gate.
The Geordie left-hander, 30, now probably has
three more innings in this series to save his
England career.
For some reason best known to himself, Root
aimed a massive drive at a ball from Hasan that
was almost a metre wide of the stumps.
He edged and wicketkeeper Sarfraz caught.
Root (right) has agreed to move up to No 3 in the
order on a permanent basis after months of
coaxing from head coach Trevor Bayliss.
But the position brings even greater responsibility and he surely cannot afford more
wafts like that.
Dawid Malan, stuck on the crease, could
not get his bat out of the line of another
ball from Hasan then Bairstow, elevated
two slots to No 5, fell to a beauty from
Faheem Ashraf that moved up the slope.
Left-armer Mohammad Amir found a way
through the defence of left-hander Cook,
but not before the former skipper showed
ten times the form and fluency he
displayed recently in New Zealand on his way to a
148-ball 70.
His feet were moving and he even unfurled some
glorious cover drives.
In his first home Test since the infamous
incident in a Bristol street last September, Stokes
batted with some authority and struck spinner
Shadab Khan for the only six of the day ?? a
mighty hoick over mid-wicket.
But, on 38, Stokes perished lbw on review and
then Buttler, following his instructions to be
aggressive no matter what, slashed in the next over
and was superbly held at second slip by Asad
Shafiq for 14.
England?s innings tailed off rapidly as
debutant Dominic Bess edged an attempted
drive to slip, Stuart Broad was nailed leg
before second ball and Mark Wood spliced
an attempted pull to mid-on.
The final six wickets fell for 16 runs.
Broad boosted England hopes when he
had Imam-ul-Haq lbw for four and Haris
Sohail should have been held by Malan at
second slip off Wood ? but Stokes put him
off by diving right in front of him.

STAR?S
SHOCK . . . Gayle surprised by Shelvey KO
?Wrong to
Shelv Jon?
By PAUL JIGGINS
DWIGHT GAYLE says England have
missed a trick by not taking his
Newcastle pal Jonjo Shelvey to the
World Cup.
And the striker insists fiery Shelvey
can keep his cool at a major finals ?
even if he does like to slide tackle
kids in garden kickabouts!
Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate
did not even name Shelvey on his
standby list for Russia, despite the
Toon midfielder?s impressive displays
this year.
Gayle, 27, said: ?I am close friends
with Jonjo and he was upset he
didn?t make it.
?Me and a lot of the boys were
surprised because he offers something
different to some of the players there.
?He should have been called up
and England have missed out.?
Southgate said he did not pick
Shelvey because of his playing style
and claimed other players are ?better?
than the former Liverpool star.
But Gayle insisted: ?Jonjo?s range of
passes, one touches and thought
process are a lot quicker than the
other players.
?And while he is not the biggest
guy you don?t often see him getting
pushed off the ball because he is so
forward-thinking in possession.?
Many on Tyneside think Shelvey ?
who got two red cards in the first
four months of the season ? was left
out for disciplinary reasons.
Gayle said: ?It?s just his will to win
that might make people see him as a
bit aggressive.
?Last weekend we were in the
garden with the lads and some of
their kids were having a kickabout.
?Then Jonjo joined in and started
flying into them with full-on tackles!?
Gayle is confident Shelvey, 26, will
get over his snub. He said: ?He will
be fine. He knows what he has to do
? he needs to keep progressing.
?He is still a young lad and has
not yet reached his potential.?

FABIAN DELPH cannot
wait
to
represent
England in Russia after
spending the last two
major tournaments in
Soccer Siberia.
Manchester City?s versatile 28-year-old admits his
only chance of seeing
England play this summer
is to actually be there
with the Three Lions.
Back home his three lionesses ? wife Natalie plus
daughters Sophia and Aleya
? call the shots once the
football season ends.
Girl power rules in the
Delph household and the
City star says it keeps him
protected within the family
bubble ? safely cocooned
from the pressure of toplevel football.
Delph, a shock inclusion in
Gareth
Southgate?s
World
Cup squad, said: ?I?ve got
two daughters, a baby on the
way and the missus ? and
they all HATE football.
?I was at home when I got
Gareth?s text informing me I
was going to Russia.
?I thought I had a chance
of going so I wouldn?t
say I was surprised
but I was still over
the moon. I was
doing cartwheels!
?But the family,
they couldn?t care
less. In fact my

daughters
are
absolutely
devastated I?m away for the
World Cup! However, the
missus is buzzing to get rid
of me ? she probably felt
like doing back flips!
?No, they?re great and I?d
probably prefer it like that.
?I finish a game and
whether I played well or
didn?t, I can switch off.
?I literally have no outside
distractions. I?m a family
man ? I?ve only got about
three friends! If you think
about what goes on outside
of your bubble it could drive
you mental, couldn?t it??
So while England were
humbled by Iceland at Euro
2016 and finished bottom of
their group in Brazil four
years ago, Delph was not
mentally scarred by those
failures because he barely
saw any of the action.
He added: ?It?s hard to
watch England with my family because I put absolutely
everything into what I do
with Manchester City on a
daily basis, I?m very intense.
?I don?t neglect them but
there?s times when I can?t
do as much with them
because I have to make sure
my preparation is spot-on.
?Once the season is finished I try my hardest to
switch off. I saw snippets of
the last World Cup but it?s
like an agreement I have
with my missus and kids ?
no football!
?I?m on holiday, doing
stuff with my girls, letting
them paint my nails pink
and all that stuff, putting
things on my head . . . ?
Even if England go all the
way to the final in Moscow
on July 15 it is unlikely
Delph will be scrambling for
VIP tickets.
Natalie is expecting their
third child on June 30 ? two
days after England?s potentially-defining
final
group
game against Belgium and
three or four days before a
potential last-16 match.
With a grin, he added:
?They?d probably rather not
go, even to the final. With
the baby due on June 30 it?s
a tricky time.
?We?re not 100 per cent
certain if I?d go home for the
birth because the last group
game is on the 28th.
?There might be an opportunity to fly back and then
get back fast. Gareth has
been absolutely fantastic.
?There?s not just me, there?s
Phil Jones as well. I think
his wife?s expecting before
the tournament begins.
?There?s
nothing
more
important than family to me,
as you?ve probably gathered
? family always comes first,
so if I have an opportunity
to get back I will.
?But if not she?s tough,
she?ll deal with it. She?s
Yorkshire,
I?m
Yorkshire,
there?s only Yorkshire Tea
bags in our house . . . and
some of them will be coming
to Russia with me!
?There?s a few Yorkies in
the squad but they?re posh
Yorkshiremen
like
Stones,
who?s from Barnsley but he?s
neglected his roots. I?m Bradford ? reet proper Yorkshire.?
Delph?s delight at being
selected for Russia was in
stark contrast to his despair
at missing out on Euro 2016
because of a groin injury.
He said: ?It?s one extreme
to the other. I played in most
of the England games in the
build-up to Euro 16 and was
quite confident I?d get a seat.
?But I was hit and miss
that season in terms of injuries and didn?t really get
going. I wasn?t able to showcase what I could do in my
first season at City because I
wasn?t playing regularly, so I
can completely understand
why I didn?t make the squad.
?I was devastated at the
time. It was a hard summer.
?But I have great people
around me. I?m a family man
and my only focus was on
them.?
GARETH DUB MIX
ENGLAND fans could have trips to Dublin and Rome if Gareth
Southgate?s side get on the Euro 2020 glory trail.
Uefa have finally confirmed the match schedule for the
finals, which will see games played in 12 cities across Europe.
If England qualify, their group clashes should be at Wembley.
The semi-finals and final are also under the Arch.
But if all goes to plan, Southgate?s men would travel to
Dublin?s Aviva Stadium for their last-16 tie and then face a
quarter-final at Rome?s Stadio Olimpico.
