Revealed: Children face lifetime of ill health
by guzzling 22 STONES of sugar by age of ten
By Kate Pickles Health Reporter
CHILDREN are consuming
300lb of sugar by the age of ten,
shocking figures reveal today.
At almost 22 stone, the average intake is
twice the recommended total ? wrecking
youngsters? teeth and future health.
Experts called on families to drop sugar-rich
cereals, yoghurts and juices in favour of
healthy alternatives. They also said the tax
brought in last year on sugared drinks should
be extended to other products.
?If we are to curb our escalating childhood
obesity epidemic then the Government must
enforce more hard-hitting tactics,? said Kawther Hashem of the charity Action on Sugar.
These could include clearer labelling, halving
sugar levels in all products, a tax on confectionery and a ban on the promotion of
unhealthy food and drink, she said.
With a third of youngsters judged overweight, Britain has the worst obesity rate in
Western Europe. From the age of two, children
are consuming an average of almost 2oz of
sugar ? 52 grams ? a day. This is more than
twice the recommended daily maximum.
Last year 26,000 under-tens were taken to
hospital with rotten teeth. Being overweight
increases the risk of major health problems

But this chemical can be destroyed by
prolonged exposure to heat ? such as during shipping or even sitting in shop win-
dows ? according to Professor Merilyn
Manley-Harris. The honey chemist, of
Waikato University, New Zealand, warned
some manuka honey sold in the UK may be
wrongly labelled as stronger than it really is
because it has been damaged by heat.

Zealand manuka bush. The honey contains
the chemical methylglyoxal (MGO) which
has antibacterial properties. Jars carry a
label detailing the honey?s strength ? or
how much of this chemical it contains.
But research suggests around half of honey
sold as ?manuka? may not be genuine, and
some contains less MGO than stated on the
label. Manuka honey is tested for strength
before it leaves New Zealand, but Professor
Manley-Harris said: ?It?s a minimum of four
to six weeks to ship, the containers are not
refrigerated and the inside of a hull can get
quite hot. Once it?s in the UK, the way honey
is handled in the shop could also affect it.?
The damage is caused because heat
speeds up the rate at which MGO naturally
diminishes. She added: ?If you?re buying
honey that has been shipped, buy one which
has also been tested when it arrives.
?Don?t buy the jar sitting in the window.

MIGRAINE sufferers may be able to cure
their headaches without resorting to
drugs thanks to a device containing
magnets, a hospital scheme has found.
The small, portable machine can be
used at home and is held at the back of
the head to relieve pain.
Patients at Guy?s and St Thomas?s headache centre in London have been given
the single-pulse transcranial magnetic
stimulation (sTMS) tools.
The device sends a pulse through the
skull at the touch of a button and
stimulates brain cells to relieve the
debilitating headaches.
The treatment has been around for
more than 50 years but the cumbersome equipment had previously meant
patients had to visit hospitals to benefit. But a new appliance the size of a
handheld radio will allow people to
treat themselves at home up to eight
times a day.
Migraines affect around ten million
adults in the UK. Symptoms include painful headaches as well as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to noises and light. Dr

In Essex, a youth was stabbed

Sussex Police Chief Inspector
Roy Hodder said his force managed more than 100 emergency

An officer claimed yesterday

Anna Andreou, director of headache
research at the NHS trust, said patients
struggle to get to a clinic for treatment
while suffering from a migraine.
She told The Times: ?Migraines are very
debilitating. All you want to do is lie
down in a dark, quiet room and try to
control your nausea and vomiting. It is a
horrible disorder.?
She added: ?What?s really great about
the sTMS device is that the treatment is
safe, non-invasive and portable.
?It works especially well for patients
who have not responded sufficiently to
previous medications or need to avoid
taking certain drugs because they have
another health condition.?
The hospital?s headache centre is the
sole NHS unit offering the devices, but
other doctors may be able to prescribe
them if funding requests are approved.

rate rise blow
SHOPS across the UK are braced for a
hike to their business rates while still
reeling from an awful Christmas period.
High street firms will be hit with a 2.4
per cent rise in rates ? and, for the first
time in history, large stores will pay
more than 50p in tax for every pound
that their property is worth.
This week the retail crisis claimed
another victim with the collapse of
men?s clothing chain Greenwoods.
Many retailers are perilously short of
cash after a dismal Christmas. They face
a tough start to the year as consumers
cut back spending, and it is feared some
of the biggest names in shopping may
not survive. Those that do will then face
a hike to business rates in April.
The increase comes after the Treasury
raked in a record �.4billion from
property taxes in 2018. The Mail is campaigning for reform of business rates so
that bricks-and-mortar shops can compete with their huge online rivals.

Discounts for under-30s as
rail fares soar for the rest
MILLIONS more young
rail passengers will benefit
from cheaper fares as prices
soar for older travellers.
Transport Secretary Chris
Grayling boasted last night
that new railcards for teenagers and under-30s will cut
fares for a ?generation?.
But commuters will stage demonstrations at stations across
the UK today in protest at surging season ticket costs. Last
By James Salmon
Transport Editor
night one campaign group said
cheaper travel for younger passengers was ?no substitute for
fundamental reform? of rail fares
which should benefit all.
Mr Grayling announced a new
railcard for those aged 16 and 17
in a bid to take the sting out of
the backlash against fare
increases. This will extend halfprice child fares to up to 1.2mil-
lion teenagers, saving hundreds
of pounds a year for families.
It will guarantee 50 per cent off
most fares, including peak, offp e a k , s u p e r o f f- p e a k a n d
advanced tickets, as well as
travelcards. The scheme will be
launched in September to coincide with the new academic year.
A new national railcard for
those aged between 26 and 30
will go on sale from midday today,
offering up to 4.4million young
adults a discount of a third on
many rail journeys ? although
there are no discounts on season
tickets. Some 4million people
already hold a ?16 to 25? discount
railcard, and the two new railcards
mean that everyone under 30 now
qualifies for discounted rail travel.
Mr Grayling said: ?The new ?16
and 17? and ?26 to 30? railcards will
cut fares for a generation of travellers, ensuring more young people
than ever will be able to travel on
our railways for less.?
Ticket prices are rising by an average of 3.1 per cent from today, which
will push up the cost of many season tickets by more than �0.
Fares have risen by 36 per cent
since the Tories came to power in
2010 ? almost three times as quickly
as wages, a report has found.
Analysis of more than 180 routes
by Labour suggests that commuters are now paying �980 for their
annual season ticket on average, up
�6 from 2010.
Labour MP Graham Stringer, a
member of the Commons transport
?No substitute
for reform?
committee, said: ?This new railcard
is essentially a gimmick to divert
attention away from the Government?s failure to run the railways
effectively. There is no help here for
commuters who have seen rail fares
go up and the service get worse.?
Darren Shirley, chief executive of
the Campaign for Better Transport,
said: ?This is a positive move for a
generation being priced off the railway. However, rail fares having gone
up following a dismal year of delays,
cancellations and overcrowding
will leave commuters wondering
what they are paying for.
?New railcards for some age groups
is no substitute for the fundamental
reform of rail fares that is needed
for the benefit of all passengers.?
?He can afford the train to
work but not the train back?
The Government has resisted pressure from Labour and commuter
groups to freeze fares.
Instead of alleviating the pressure
on all passengers the Government
has focused its efforts on making rail
travel more affordable for younger
people, including teenagers within
two years of being able to vote.
It marks an attempt to attract
younger voters courted by Labour
leader Jeremy Corbyn with the
promise of a string of giveaways,
including free university tuition,
cancelling existing student debt and
free bus travel for under-25s.
The railcards will be funded by rail
operators. But the Rail Delivery
Group, which represents rail companies and Network Rail, has
insisted the schemes will not be
subsidised by older passengers.
It said the railcards will in fact be
?cost neutral? because they will
encourage youngsters to travel by
train more frequently.

Passengers unite to
protest across UK
By Transport Editor
RAIL passengers who now face
spending up to 40 per cent of their
pay packet on a season ticket will
stage a wave of protests today.
Commuter groups and trade
unions will join forces to make
their anger known as average fare
increases of 3.1 per cent come into
force today ? taking some ticket
prices to almost �,000 a year. The
cost of some single tickets will rise
above �per mile.
Protesters will gather at more
than a dozen bustling transport
hubs including Bristol Temple
Meads, Cardiff Central, Manchester Piccadilly, Birmingham New
Street, Liverpool Lime Street and
London King?s Cross.
According to analysis published
by Labour, the increases mean the
average commuter will now be
forced to pay �90 for their season ticket.
The biggest increase it identified
was on a Virgin Trains season ticket
between Birmingham and London,
which will soar � from �,564
to �,902. This equates to about 3

The ?Anytime? standard-class fare
for the 24-mile journey between

Similarly, the 172-mile trip from

Virgin Trains rises by �to �5.50,
or �02 per mile.
A separate report from the TUC
found that UK commuters spend
up to five times as much on their
season tickets as their European
counterparts. A season ticket for
the 30-mile trip between Chelmsford, Essex, and London costs �716
a year ? or �3 a month ? which
the report said accounts for 13 per

miles from Etampes to Paris costs

Little survivors: The twins in hospital
By Inderdeep Bains
THEY are healthy, happy and
looking forward to a promising
future with dreams of Oxbridge.
It is a far cry from the terrible uncertainty Zainab and Jannat Rahman
faced when they were born ? joined at
the chest and liver.
Doctors had told their parents to consider
aborting the conjoined twins, giving them a
one in a million chance of survival.
But the sisters defied the odds, and have
now just celebrated their 16th birthdays.
Their proud mother Nipa, 36, a nursery
nurse, said: ?Everything we went through
before feels like a distant nightmare now.
At that time I never dared imagine this day.
But to look at them now is amazing. They
have achieved so much already and against
the worst odds imaginable.?
The girls were separated at six weeks old
in a pioneering four-and-a-half hour operation by a 20-strong surgical team at Great
Ormond Street Hospital.
Today they are promising A* pupils at the
top of their school in east London, where
they are both prefects.
Zainab hopes to go to Cambridge and
become a paediatrician at Great Ormond
Street. Jannat, who is studying three
languages, plans to go to Oxford and
hopes to become a lawyer. Their father

We are still cherishing it. Every day. They
have made us both very proud,? he said.
?They are a miracle. And I tell them that
they are here for a greater need in this
world. To achieve good things and to treat
people with respect and kindness.?
The sisters, who are full of energy and
constantly finishing each other?s sentences,
turned 16 on December 1.
In all their lives the girls, who say they are
?best friends?, have spent just one night
apart. Jannat said: ?It was a school night
and I wasn?t well. I was quite young so I had
to spend the night at my grandmother?s
house. It was only down the road though ?
We don?t have any reason to be apart.?
Zainab added: ?We have the same

parents at the first scan in 2002,
when doctors advised Mrs Rahman to consider an abortion.
She said: ?In the scan they could
see there were two heartbeats,
which was good, but that they
were not moving independently.?
Mr Rahman said: ?We were horrified when we were advised to
abort them. But we said, whatever
they are, they are our children.?
He added: ?They said it was one

both of them. If they did survive,
there was a chance that one of the
children could lose a limb or end
up with an illness. Luckily the
organ they shared was the only
one that regenerates, the liver.
?They were more worried for Jannat. They said it was a slim chance
of her surviving as Zainab had been
keeping her alive in the womb.
Jannat had a hole in her heart.?
Once separated, Jannat went
into intensive care for further surgery. During this time Zainab, feel-
ing the absence of her sister at her
side, became restless, refusing
food and being unable to sleep.
?Zainab was looking for her. She

then one of the nurses had an idea
and fetched a mirror. She put it in

looking at her reflection and smiling. She was content again.
?Eventually we were able to walk

?????
PEED cameras ? Exterminate! Car park ticket barriers ? Exterminate! Parking
meters ? Exterminate!
Being a Dalek, even a skinny
one made from scrap, looked like a
lot of fun, as Call The Midwife?s
drippy Nurse Barbara leaned out
of a car window on Doctor Who
(BBC1) blasting her way through
petty regulations with a ray gun.
Actress Charlotte Ritchie wasn?t
really a Dalek, but one had control of
her mind and body, which is the next
best thing.
As a rogue archaeologist called
Lin, she dealt with two traffic
cops faster than you could say
?six-point penalty notice?.
This was the moment that rescued the New Year?s Day special,
which up till then had been a slow,
maudlin affair. Writer Chris Chibnall
has a horrible tendency to turn the
show into a moody soap opera
whenever there?s a lull in the plot.
We?d been obliged to sit through
a lot of tedious family confrontations before the psychopathic
mobile cheesegrater from the
planet Skaro arrived, screeching
about world domination. Overgrown adolescent Ryan, played by
Tosin Cole, had an endless whinge
at his father over a coffee, dragging up a lifetime of resentment
and dumping it all on dad.
Sulky self-pity is unattractive at
any age but there?s nothing more
ghastly than a man in his 20s
behaving like Harry Enfield?s
monstrous teenager Kevin ?
?Urrrghhh! I hate yoooouuu!?
The most toe-curling moment
came when Ryan dictated an apology for his father to recite, pleading for forgiveness for ?not being
Dalek on
a diet zaps

there?, and then rejected it anyway. By then I was thinking that
no matter how far the Tardis could
travel in time and space, it couldn?t
get far enough away from Ryan.
Soap sensibilities carried over
elsewhere. We saw the terrace
house in Sheffield where Ryan?s
grandad, Bradley Walsh, lived ?
apparently stocked with furniture
from the last time Stan and
Hilda Ogden had a clear-out on
Coronation Street.
The obsession of this
series with Sheffield
has been a strange one. It?s
the third time the Doctor
(Jodie Whittaker) has had
to save the city in recent
weeks, first
from mindmelting intergalactic warriors called the Stenza,
then from giant spiders,
and now from Daleks.
A few miles up the
road in Doncaster,
where there have
been no alien threats
at all, I bet they?re
feeling pretty smug.
The adventure began in the
waterlogged vaults under
Sheffield?s city hall. You?d think
the council would do something
about that ? it?s never good to
leave spooky unmapped crypts
below civic buildings. They
wouldn?t make such a basic
mistake in Doncaster.
Much of the script seemed to be
written in councilese, too. When
the Doctor discovered a Dalek on
the loose, she warned her human
companions to ?assume proximity is a risk?. It would be
hard to find a clumsier way
to say ?Don?t get too close
to it?, unless you transcribed planning committee meetings for a living.
But Chibnall?s knack
with a clunky phrase
enabled him to insert a
good joke, when the
Doctor tried to phone
Earth?s ultra- secret
counter-alien squad,
UNIT, and got put
through to a call centre
instead: ?Other armed
forces are available,
I?ll just put you on
hold while I redirect your call.? By
now, the action had picked up,
and what had begun as another
glum bout of heavy sighs and
space travellers feeling sorry for
themselves was zipping along.
It can?t be a coincidence that
Whittaker?s Doctor had failed to
confront any of the traditional
adversaries before this point: No
Cybermen, no Weeping Angels,
no Sontarans. It takes a Dalek to
get things moving.
A
ND things did move,
once the slimy octopuslike creature hidden in
the metal casing had
attached itself to the back of Miss
Ritchie?s neck. When she was
pedalling round the East End in
Call The Midwife she saw plenty of
medical emergencies ? but nothing to compare with tentacles of
evil worming their way up her
spinal cord and into her brain.
What would her pal Nurse
Chummy have to say about that?
?Oh gosh! Ouch-ees!?
The episode built to a well-
constructed climax that saw the
psychotic squid restored to its
iconic conical Dalek casing, a
scrawny affair constructed from
scrap metal and fitted with rocket
launchers ? it?s amazing what a
cephalopod in a bad mood can
find lying around a scrap yard.
After taking on the might of the
Army, who forgot to bring any
proper weapons with them and
paid the price, the Dalek was fried
with an improvised device that
Ryan?s dad cooked up from a
microwave oven. That?s a trick
Jon Pertwee?s Doctor would have
admired. Proper old school innit,
as Ryan would say.
There?ll be no more Doctor
Who this year. The next series
has been postponed to 2020
while, according to rumours
published in the long-running

backstage disagreements.

?Months of rest? for Osmond after stroke
Panto: Jimmy as Captain Hook
JIMMY Osmond was yesterday said to be
comfortable but in need of months of rest
and recovery after suffering a stroke while
playing Captain Hook in a pantomime.
The American star, 55, fell ill on stage at the
Birmingham Hippodrome last week but
?pushed through? the performance and
signed autographs before going to hospital.
Yesterday a source close to him said: ?There
are different levels of strokes, and he has
received the care he needs and is looking
forward to a few months of self-care.?
By David Wilkes
As thousands of fans from across the world
continued to send best wishes to him via
social media, his brother Donny Osmond, 61,
posted a poignant photograph on Twitter of
Jimmy sitting on a five-bar gate with his arm
around him when they were children.
In an accompanying message, Donny
wrote: ?Thank you all for your thoughts and
prayers on behalf of my little brother,
Jimmy. I love you, brother.? Their sister
Marie Osmond, 59, posted a praying hands
symbol on Twitter with the message:
?Prayers for my brother Jimmy.?
Just days earlier, before the news of
Jimmy?s stroke became public, she had
written in another post: ?We always count
our blessings around the New Year ? so
grateful for my brothers who started it all?
above a sepia-tinted photograph of them
all as youngsters.
Jimmy previously suffered a stroke 15 years
ago when he was 40.

COMMENT
The railways need real
reform ? not gimmicks
IF this country ran an efficient, value-formoney rail service, only the most
curmudgeonly traveller would gripe about
cheap fares being extended to all young
people up to the age of 30.
The discounts will doubtless bring some
financial relief to those making their way in
the world of work on modest wages and
encourage them to use the railways ? widely
regarded as the most environmentallyfriendly form of public transport.
But we don?t have an efficient rail service.
We have an unreliable Third World shambles
? for which the long-suffering public is
paying through the nose. A combination of
truculent unions, weak management and a
timetable fiasco have made train travel a
truly miserable experience for millions.
Yet again today fares go up another 3.1 per
cent ? the latest in a long sequence of
inflation-busting rises. And for what? Delays,
cancellations and chronic overcrowding.
So it?s hardly surprising that when
20-somethings, teenagers and over-60s
are enjoying reduced fares, beleaguered
commuters between those ages are saying:
What about us?
They also sense that on top of their own
extortionate fares, they may also end up
paying for the Government?s largesse to
the young. The Rail Delivery Group claims
the discounts will be offset by the larger
numbers of young people travelling, but
that sounds more like hope than reality.
The truth is this initiative is a shameless
bribe to young voters, who are flocking to
Jeremy Corbyn?s banner on the bogus
promise of ?free everything?.
Instead of indulging in such transparent
gimmicks ? and meddling in the free market
? the Government should be working to
improve the railways for everyone.
Labour and the unions say the answer is
re-nationalisation. Anyone who had the
misfortune to travel on filthy, strike-bound
British Rail knows this is utterly spurious.
But as private firms and Transport
Secretary Chris Grayling manifestly fail to
get a grip, the clamour for taking the railways
back into state ownership ? misguided as it
is ? grows louder by the day.
A weighty problem
THE Mail has always believed the nanny
state is a poor substitute for individual
responsibility. But some health issues are
so huge, and so urgent, that the case for
Government action seems overwhelming.
So it is with the obesity epidemic.
A third of children leave primary school
overweight. If not tackled, this sets the tone
for later life, bringing diabetes, respiratory
disease and chronic tooth decay.
We report today that children eat the
equivalent of eight sugar cubes above the
recommended intake every day ? mainly in
sugary cereals, juices and yoghurts. And of
course it?s the NHS that picks up the tab.
The tax on sweet fizzy drinks had an effect
even before it was brought in, with
manufacturers reducing sugar content to
avoid paying it. So extending the tax to
food and other sugary drinks and improving
labelling could create a wider revolution.
Yes, it may be nanny statism ? but the
evidence is that it works. If it can help solve
the obesity epidemic, isn?t it worth a try?
Sadiq?s divisive stunt
HOW very dispiriting of London Mayor
Sadiq Khan to use the capital?s New Year
fireworks display as a provocative
advertisement for Brussels.
By transforming the London Eye into an
EU flag and declaring ?we?re going to carry

effectively branded 17.4million Leave
voters as insular and inward-looking ?
exacerbating division.
Mr Khan is paid to bring Londoners
together in a spirit of harmony and
friendship. This stunt was designed to do
exactly the opposite.

Into this national crisis of epic

Ambassador Woody Johnson
is just one lucky beneficiary of

are losers.
In truth, his appointment is
another very troubling sign of
the betrayal in recent years of
the best U.S. political traditions. Some of the greatest
men in American history ?
including five future presidents
? served as U.S. ambassador
to London.
Woody Johnson cannot be
classed in their company. This
scion of the industrial company
Johnson & Johnson ? famous
for making Band-Aid sticking
plasters and shampoo ? is not
even second-division.
Outcry
Twelve years ago, his business
dealings came under the
microscope when questions
were asked about his
investment firm?s involvement
in tax avoidance schemes.
Johnson said he had done
nothing illegal, and had relied
on advisers who told him such
conduct was lawful.
However, he settled with the
U.S. tax authorities, paying
100 pc of the outstanding taxes
and interest.
In Britain, such a record
could have debarred Johnson
from further involvement in
public life. And the
appointment of a character
such as this to become British
ambassador in Washington
would have been greeted with
a national outcry.
But then, it?s quite impossible
to imagine Sir Kim Darroch,
our man in Washington, taking
t o t h e U. S . a i r w a v e s t o
denounce Trump in the way
Woody Johnson did with Mrs
May on New Year?s Eve.
Of course, Sir Kim would
have had plenty of targets had
he decided to pass judgement
on the present incumbent of
the White House.
He might shine a light on the
deeply unjust treatment of
black people and Muslims in
Trump?s America.
Or on the progress of Robert
Mueller?s investigation into
claims that the Trump
campaign colluded with Russia
before the 2016 presidential
election, which may this year
lead to the impeachment of
the U.S. President.
Squirming
He could ask why few senior
m e m b e r s o f t h e Tr u m p
administration seem able to
hang on to their jobs for more
than a matter of months before
resigning in disgrace or quitting because they cannot work
with the petulant President.
Above all, he could question
the culture of cronyism which
has enabled a political fundraiser with no background in
diplomacy to be appointed
ambassador to Great Britain.
I should point out that Mr
Johnson did say that Britain?s
future was ?extremely positive,
extremely bright?. But that
does not excuse his slur on the
Prime Minister.
Professional diplomats would
have been squirming with
embarrassment listening to his
inept intervention in British
politics, not least because
they know Donald Trump
only really knows and likes one
British politician ? Nigel
Farage, the former leader
of UKIP.
I can?t say for certain, but to
me, it looks very much as if
Trump gets his understanding
of British politics from his
friend Farage ? and then
passes on his wisdom to
Woody Johnson.
So when Trump?s crony
Johnson turned up on the
Today programme, he was
really giving BBC listeners the
world view of Farage.
The fact is that Johnson is
out of his depth. Like his
master, Donald Trump, he is
becoming a national
embarrassment to the U.S.
If the President won?t rein
him in ? and I?m not holding
my breath ? Britain?s Foreign
Secretary Jeremy Hunt should
haul this billionaire buffoon
into the Foreign Office and
read him the riot act.
And if he continues to
make political attacks on the
Prime Minister, we should
encourage him to take the next
plane home.

Fools! In fact, they?re ?fuelling the

?outdated beliefs? ? or at least
that?s according to a new study of
families in Birmingham and edinburgh, which found that children
who are mainly cared for by their
grandparents are more likely to be
?obese and consume more snacks?.
even worse, grandparent carers
had a tendency to leave children to
their own devices while carrying
out daily chores like housework,
which, the ?experts? claimed, would
not happen in a nursery.

are we seriously expecting them
to provide an Ofsted-approved level

Or might that also have something to do with the decline of
sports in schools, sedentary lifestyles, lack of opportunity, anxiety

He would make me instant

It used to drive my mother mad.
But then he?d take me off to the

Traffickers exploit social
network to promote
illegal routes into Britain
for up to �,000 a time
By Arthur Martin and Dora Allday
SMUGGLERS are brazenly
using Facebook to offer migrants
illegal routes to the UK for up to
�,000, it emerged yesterday.
The traffickers boast how they can
help people from Africa and Asia
reach Western Europe without
being caught.
The Daily Mail found a tranche of illegal activity on Facebook ? just hours
after the tech giant said it had improved
its security measures.
The social network has doubled its
safety and security team to more than
30,000 staff and has invested in the latest technology to combat trafficking
and other unlawful behaviour. But illegal immigration operations can be
found by carrying out simple searches
on sections of the site which are open
to the public.
The revelation comes after Sajid Javid
performed a humiliating U-turn over
the Channel migrant crisis.
After being forced to cut short his
safari holiday, the Home Secretary
bowed to pressure from Tory MPs and
recalled two ships to the Channel.
At least 139 migrants have been
caught crossing from France over the
festive period.
Most are Iranians who are thought to
have paid traffickers thousands of
pounds per person for a spot on a small
?Protecting human
life and our borders?
dinghy. Facebook has become a magnet
for migrants who are willing to place
their lives in the hands of organised
crime networks to reach the UK.
One of the pages found is called ?illegal
immigration from Libya to Italy? and
offers places on poorly maintained fishing boats to cross the Mediterranean. It
features a picture of a boat packed with
migrants.
Another is called ?immigration to Britain? and contains pictures of Big Ben
and the Houses of Parliament. There is
a picture of a wad of banknotes under a
discussion about reaching the UK from
the Middle East.
One migrant, who calls himself Mo
Khalefah, openly asked smugglers to
?get him out of oppression?.
Mr Khalefah posted a picture of himself wearing a life jacket, surrounded by
other migrants, on a boat on the Mediterranean in the summer. He now claims
to have reached France.
One trafficking group appears to be
operating from the Iranian capital
Tehran. The Facebook page states: ?We
can help people who want to migrate
through legal or illegal means to claim
asylum. People who don?t have a passport or don?t want to travel on their
own passports can be provided with
another one.?
It offers a list of countries which it can
take migrants to with a price alongside
each one. The group offers travel to the
UK for �000. Elsewhere the Mail found

Facebook pages where traffickers were
demanding �,000 for a ?guaranteed?
route to the UK. The discoveries come
after the UN?s migration agency warned
that Facebook is letting smugglers lure
migrants ?to their deaths? with promises of safe passage to Europe.
Leonard Doyle, of the International
Organisation for Migration, said
migrants were being ?lured to Calais?
with little checks from the tech giants.
Mr Javid?s U-turn came after he previously resisted calls to bring more boats
to the Channel amid concerns they
would act as a magnet for migrants.
HMC Searcher had been the only cutter patrolling the area for illegal immigrants. Charlie Elphicke, the Tory MP
for Dover, voiced his support for the
move, saying: ?I am delighted Sajid
Javid has listened and is bringing two
more cutters to the English Channel.?
Speaking after a meeting on Monday
with senior officials from the National
Crime Agency and Border Force, Mr
Javid said: ?This incident around the
Channel remains a very serious concern
to me, that?s why I declared it as a
major incident a few days ago.
?It?s both about protecting human life
but also about protecting our borders.?
Regarding activity on its site, Facebook said: ?People smuggling is illegal
and any ads, posts, pages or groups
that coordinate this activity are not
allowed on Facebook. We work closely
with law enforcement agencies around
the world including Europol to identify,
remove and report this illegal activity.?
� THE HMC Searcher has been criticised for deactivating its tracking systems after Border Force feared
migrants were using an app to locate
and avoid the vessel.
Maritime experts said the move risked
collisions in the Channel as other boats
would not be able to detect it.
Tom Sharpe, a former Royal Navy
officer and captain of HMS Endurance,
told the Daily Telegraph: ?It?s not very
clever and it?s not very seaman-like.?
Thwarted ... bid
to slip into Europe
inside mattresses
HIS expression says it all ? this African
migrant?s unusual attempt to sneak into
Europe hidden in a mattress has failed.
He and another stowaway were sewn into
two mattresses that were then strapped to
the roof of a van.
It is thought to be the first time this method
has been tried. However, they were discovered when guards at the border crossing
from Morocco to the Spanish enclave of
Melilla became suspicious.
Video footage shows the extraordinary
moment at the checkpoint when the two men
emerged on Sunday after Spanish police cut
through plastic wrapping and fabric to find
them. They are each said to have paid a trafficker �000 to attempt the crossing.
The driver of the van fled into Morocco
By Arthur Martin
when officers asked to inspect his cargo. His
hidden passengers were taken to a migrant
holding centre. Footage of their discovery
was tweeted by Spanish senator Jon Inarritu,
who wrote: ?As long as there are no safe
routes to request asylum, situations like this
will continue to occur.?
Melilla and Ceuta, a second Spanish enclave
in Morocco, have Europe?s only land borders
with Africa. The UN said more than 5,000
migrants entered Melilla last year.
Spain became one of the main entry points
for migrants to Europe after other EU nations
tightened their borders. The UN claims more
than 62,000 migrants arrived in Spain in 2018
after crossing the Mediterranean.
Iraqis ?tried to steal trawler?
FRENCH police have foiled another Channel crossing, stopping 14 migrants trying to
steal a trawler, it emerged yesterday.
Boat thefts in the ports of Calais and Boulogne-sur-Mer are increasing as migrants and
people-smugglers resort to increasingly desperate measures to get into the UK.
At 9.30pm on New Year?s Eve, Iraqi
migrants including a mother, her two children and at least two suspected traffickers
were spotted on the Caprice Des Temps II
by Boulogne?s harbourmaster.
Riot police who were in the area for New
Year celebrations stopped them before the
large vessel could be taken, but the two suspected people-smugglers fled before they
From Glen Keogh in Calais
could be arrested. The attempted boat theft
is the latest in a series of similar incidents.
On December 23, 16 migrants were stopped
in a stolen boat shortly after making it into
the Channel from Boulogne, and in November, 17 migrants made it to Dover on a 12metre boat stolen from a port near Calais.
At least 139 migrants have been caught
crossing the Channel in the festive period.
Calais harbourmaster Etienne Caron said:
?The problem is that the migrants see the
White Cliffs of Dover and they think it?s just a
short distance away. But there are powerful
tides and currents.?

But so far the response from Mr

Africa. Moreover, despite his declaration of a ?major incident? in the

Speaker calls for those who hardly contribute

Associate Editor
tHe House of Lords should reduce
the number of peers who are ?passengers? and contribute little or
nothing to politics, norman Fowler
has said.
Lord Fowler ? who as Lord speaker
chairs debates in the upper house ?
insisted the majority of peers are
actively involved.
But in scathing remarks, the former tory
cabinet minister said there were cases
where new peers decided after a few days
they were ?in the wrong place doing the
wrong thing?.
Lord Fowler, who has been Lord speaker
for the past two years, is leading efforts to
dramatically reduce the membership of
the Lords.
with nearly 800 members it is the second
largest legislative assembly in the world,
after China?s national People?s Congress.
Members of the Lords can claim a �5
tax-free allowance each day just for turning up ? even if they do not contribute.
in an interview with the guardian, Lord
Fowler argued the lack of screening of
political appointees meant some new
arrivals had little idea what to do.
?You do have extraordinary
cases where people have come

when David Cameron made her
a tory peer, she then pledged
to play a full and active role in
the Lords.
But out of 457 sitting days
since she entered the House,
she attended just 89 up until
last June. she spoke in the
chamber just three times,
including her maiden speech.
Lord Fowler has led efforts to
cut numbers by encouraging
peers to retire and limiting the
number of new arrivals.
?i do think it is completely
crazy that we have a system at
the moment where the size of
the House of Lords is totally
open-ended,? he said.
?i know of no assembly in the
western world, or any other
world for that matter, where
there isn?t a limit on the numbers. it isn?t a revolutionary
thing to say.?
A poll last year found that
76 per cent of voters feel peers
are ?out of tune with the will of
the British people?.
A large majority of them
described the House of Lords
as an ?outdated throwback?.
seven in ten voters said there
should be fewer peers than the
current 780. And eight in ten

expected some sort of revolt
when she told the teenage
girls in her class they were
going to have a needlework
lesson, while the boys studied Latin.
t
?They had to sew a buttonhole and embroider a handkerchief, and it didn?t go down well,?
she admits. ?They were utterly horrified,
affronted by what they rightly perceived to be
completely unjust.? She was with them on the
howls of ?how sexist!?
?I actually felt really uncomfortable asking
them to do it, because it went against everything we all think about equality. The boys
also had lessons in firing guns, while the girls
had to learn about how to wallpaper a room
and make beds with hospital corners in their
science lesson!?
But if she was appalled at having to set a
girls-only needlework lesson, Sue, 46, was
astonished at what happened next. First there
was much grumbling at being asked to thread
a needle. One girl, who admitted she had never
held a needle before (?in Design and Technology I just glue everything together?), argued it
was physically impossible.
Then something odd happened. The girls
Daily Mail, Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Johnston
settled down with their handkerchiefs, and
rather enjoyed themselves.
?Within a short space of time they said, ?Actually, we really like this.? What they liked wasn?t
so much about the fact they were sewing, but
they liked the fact that they had the time and
the space to sit relatively peacefully and
quietly and talk to one another while they did
something. I remember sitting looking at
them, thinking, ?This is just like the mindfulness of the modern day.?
?It was what we in the teaching profession
spend a lot of time trying to get them to do,
unplug from extraneous gadgets and just
recognise the value in some quiet time and
reflection, and old-fashioned face-to-face
communication. It was quite an eye-opener.?
The TV project which instigated this embroidery class is an eye-opener all round. Back In
Time For School is effectively a big living his-
tory lesson. In the BBC show ? based on a
previous format where families undertook to
live in homes from different historical periods
? a group of teenage boys and girls are asked
to turn back time with their schooling.
Over six episodes, the 20 teenagers and four
teachers, from schools across the Midlands,
follow lessons just as children in the Victorian
era would have done, then progress to Edwardian times, and so on, right up to the Nineties.
The result? We now have a clutch of teenagers ? and their teachers ? who know what it
felt like to walk the corridors in the shoes (and
corsets, for the girls) of their great-grandparents, their grandparents and their parents.
And what did it feel like? ?Uncomfortable,?
says Adelaide, 15, who must be one of the few
teens in Britain who has attempted to play
tennis wearing a floor-length skirt and, yes, a
corset. ?I couldn?t breathe, never mind run for
the ball,? she confesses. her teacher has sympathy. ?We all had to wear Victorian dress, too,?
says Sue. ?It had an impact in so many ways.
When we were trying to sing, we couldn?t take
a deep enough breath. I am not sure I realised
how restrictive that dress would be.?
Mind you, the teenagers were equally
appalled to wear the flares and dungarees
their ancestors might have worn in the Seventies and Eighties.
?I went home one night and told
my mum about this disgusting
denim skirt I?d had to wear,? says
Adelaide. ?She said ?Oh I had one
like that.? ?
The series was filmed in a Victorian-built school in Coventry, with
the decor adjusted as the class
moved through the ages. Uniforms,
school meals and curriculums
refected the era of the time.
The first episode sees the boys
and girls lining up to go into class.
Before they can even enter the
classroom, they must undergo
?inspection? of their hands, and
behind their ears.
Anyone with dirty fingernails is
sent to wash them. Everyone is then
given a spoonful of ?brimstone and
treacle? to set them up for the day.
Jamie, 15, dubbed it: ?The most disgusting thing I?ve ever tasted.?
Mind you, the school dinners from
that era came a close second.
?None of the kids coped well with
the fish pie,? admits Sue. ?But what
we teachers were astonished at was
that there were oysters in it.
?Who ever thought of oysters in a
school dinner? But they were cheap
at the time.?
W
hAT happened when
the tapioca pudding
was brought out
though? There were
howls of: ?What is this frogspawn??
One girl declared it to be ?like Coco
Pops in sick?. But oddly, one boy,
licking his lips, appreciated the fact
that he was getting a free school
dinner. ?It?s better than paying
�60 for a little panini that is
just dry with very little filling,? he
says, summing up his modern canteen experience.
This is a glorious series, which flits
between funny and downright disturbing. In the Victorian episode,
the laughs come with the basics ?
the pupils trying to cope with ink
wells. ?What a mess,? says Sue. ?They
were covered in it. The desks were
covered in it. They had an ink monitor who would go round filling up
the tiny pots, and, of course, everywhere was swimming in it.?
Not much writing got done, the
teenagers admit. ?I literally couldn?t.
I could not get a single word
written,? says Adelaide.
In the programme, one boy can?t
write anything for reasons other
than lack of experience with a quill.
he has his left hand tied behind his
back, in keeping with the thinking
of the time that being left handed
meant one was closer to the devil.
Many of the children had not even
heard of this nonsensical idea. ?It
was completely alien to them,? says
Sue. ?As it should be.?
So what were they actually learning in school in Victorian times?
This is where the shocks come.
The sexism is extraordinary. For
starters, Sue ? who in real life is the
headteacher of a school in the Midlands ? was not allowed to take the
head teacher role, because the head
Old School:
Pupils and staff
in the Victorian
programme
teacher had to be a man. If these
were sexist times, then they were
also racist. In history, the children
learn about the dominance of the
British Empire. This is, in parts a
stirring experience, one that gives
them the chance to dress up and be
in a triumphant march.
?There was a parade to celebrate
Empire Day, and that was quite
affecting for me because I had a
grandmother who was born in 1904,?
says Sue. ?You realise that we are
talking about quite recent history.?
This makes the more unpalatable
parts all the more shocking. In one
class, the pupils are asked to copy
?facts? the teacher writes on the
board. The paragraph refers to Aborigines as ?savages?, explaining that
efforts have been made to ?tame?
them, but unsuccessfully.
It is racism literally writ large on
the board, and the reaction of
ed
the pupils is one of stunned silence.
?I mean I knew that people had
racist attitudes, but still. This is
what they were taught, as fact,?
says Adelaide.
This is particularly apalling for the
non-white teenagers, whose faces
register the horror. One girl voices
the reality many are thinking ? that
her own great-grandparents would
have been taught that someone
who had skin like hers should be
thought of as a savage.
Remarkably, perhaps, Adelaide
says the lesson was helpful. ?I?m

almost grateful to have seen it written like that,? she says. ?It was
shocking, but it made me realise
how things were then, and why that
racism was allowed to spread.?
Sue admits there was a lot of
unease on the part of the teachers.
?That lesson on Empire will live
with me for ever,? she says.
?It was horrible, horrendous. And
as a teacher you are standing there
thinking, ?I feel very uncomfortable about delivering this?, but at
the same time you know you have
to be authentic. We can?t rewrite

taught at the time

important that we look at it and
recognise the bits that are totally
unpalatable to us now.?
Sue says there are lessons she
learned about teaching, and how
the curriculum has always been
politicised. ?The boys were learning to shoot because of the Boer
War not going as well as it might,
and because of concerns about the

concerns ? There were
certain eras that everyone involved
agrees are best consigned to
history. The Seventies episode sees
the school turn into a ?free
school? with liberal ideas about
education. ?That did not work,?
says Sue. ?Classes were optional
and the children could choose
whether they wanted to attend. It
was a disaster.?
Interestingly, the pupils hated
this decade, too. ?At first we
thought ?Oh great, we don?t have

and it was a bit chaotic

Jamie. Sue found the Eighties

By Neil Sears
A KILLER who let his date drown
in a speedboat tragedy has won
the right to appeal against his
conviction and jail sentence ?
despite being on the run.
Jack Shepherd, 31, used his boat to
woo at least ten women before the
fatal trip with Charlotte Brown, 24.
He was drunk and the craft was poorly
maintained with no lifejackets to hand.
However, he has not served a day of his
six-year sentence because he absconded
before the start of his Old Bailey trial last

described the situation as ?incredible,

?We don?t know when the court date is

while he?s still on the run is incredible.
?I?ll be raising it with [Home Secretary]

First-time buyers take out half of all mortgages
HALF of all homes bought with a mortgage last year went to first-time buyers,
analysis suggests.
Figures indicate that 2018 saw the highest number of Britons getting on the housing ladder since 2006.
Research from the Yorkshire Building
Society found that across the UK some
367,038 first-time buyers used mortgages
in 2018. That was nearly double the figure
in 2008 ? 193,300 ? and stood just 9 per
cent lower than the pre-crisis peak of
402,800 in 2006. Yorkshire Building Society said first-time buyers now represent
Daily Mail Reporter
50 per cent of all homes bought with a
mortgage ? the highest proportion since
1995. The lender based its findings on
market-wide first-time buyer data from
trade association UK Finance, using figures up to October. It then estimated figures for November and December based
on previous buyer patterns.
The researchers said the figures suggest
government initiatives aimed at first-time
buyers ? such as Help to Buy Isas and stamp
duty relief ? have had a positive impact.
Yorkshire Building Society economist
Nitesh Patel said: ?Property prices have
grown at a faster rate than wages over
the past decade, which has created difficulties for first-time buyers.
?Various factors have helped to alleviate
this challenging environment, although
the market is still pretty tough for those
wanting to become homeowners.?
He added: ?Over the past three or four
years, we?ve also seen more mortgage
lenders offering 95 per cent loan-to-value
mortgages, as well as strong competition
driving mortgage rates down.? He stressed
that getting on the housing ladder ?is still
not an easy step for many young people,
as demonstrated by the increasing numbers who have received help from the
Bank of Mum and Dad?.
However, he added: ?Despite these challenges, the first-time buyer market has
bounced back following the financial crisis to outperform other sectors, such as
the home-moving and buy-to-let markets. Buying your first home remains
tough for many but it?s encouraging to
see first-time buyer levels at a 12-year
high and climbing.?

Doctors have advised relatives of desperately ill patients
to trawl through their emails
and Facebook posts to check
whether they want to die.
they said old messages could
indicate whether someone would
prefer not to live on with a disease
or injury that leaves them unable
to speak. An email or web post
could lead to medics turning off life
support machines.
the British Medical Association guidance follows a test case in which a High
court judge said a 74-year-old woman
in a coma should be allowed to die
because of an email she sent.
the woman?s daughter produced a
message, referring to her father who

Patient, 74, told daughter: Get the pillow ready
THE controversial BMA advice follows a test
case involving a 74-year-old woman who fell
into a coma in hospital.
High Court judge Mr Justice Hayden last year
ruled that she should die based on her wishes
expressed in an email. He said her daughter
found a message sent in May 2013 which read:
?Did you see that thing on dementia? Made me
think of Dad and what a travesty of life his last
years were ... and all the sadder as he had such
incredible talent.
?You know I miss Mum every day and still talk
to her but it is a comfort that she went quickly
had dementia, stating: ?Get the pillow
ready if I get that way.?
the suggestion to families to search
emails, Facebook, twitter, or Instagram messages is contained in BMA
guidance on what to do if a close relative is desperately ill.
Last night it was branded ?ill-judged?
by a doctors? group which opposes
euthanasia and ?mercy killing?.
the row follows a supreme assisted nutrition and hydration?
court ruling last year that doc- (cANH). It says: ?sometimes the

about the withdrawal of ?clinicallythe advice stresses that families

Get the pillow ready if I get that way! Love
Mum.? It is thought the unnamed woman ? a
heavy drinker ? was referring to a BBC2 documentary about a dementia charity, broadcast
on the day her email was sent.
The judge ruled that the message was not a
throwaway remark and that feeding tubes
should be withdrawn by the hospital in Salford,
Greater Manchester. He said the email was a
powerful indicator of the woman?s wishes and
?reflective of her determination to preserve
her independence, privacy and autonomy.?

the law that patients who are in
a coma or only minimally conscious may be deprived of nutrition and hydration dates from
1993, when law lords ruled that
Hillsborough football disaster victim tony Bland could be killed by
removing tubes that were keeping
him alive.
the 2005 Mental capacity Act
allows people to write ?advance
directives? which tell doctors to
remove tubes if they are incapacitated. It also allows people to
appoint a ?health and welfare
attorney? with the power to order
doctors to end their lives in certain
circumstances. Until last summer?s
supreme court ruling doctors routinely asked a judge to make the
choice between life and death.
the new BMA guidance also
says doctors may decide to withdraw cANH to end the lives of
patients who might have lived on
for some time, such as those with
advanced dementia.
steve Fouch, of the christian
Medical Fellowship, said: ?this
advice is ill-judged as it supports
the removal of important independent legal safeguards.
?It ignores the latest medical evidence on how difficult it is to
accurately diagnose the level of
brain damage of our patients and
long-term prognosis.
?Worryingly, it expects emo tional family members to trawl
t h r o u g h tw i t t e r a n d e m a i l
accounts to try and identify what
the wishes of their loved ones
would be in a unique and difficult
set of circumstances.?
Mr Fouch added: ?this advice
should be scrapped and the BMA
should urgently review the evidence that four in ten people who
are thought to be unconscious are
actually aware.?

Missed
GP visits F
cost NHS
�6m
each year
our years ago, Chris Witt went
for a stroll on a late summer
holiday in Tenerife. He was
wearing a new pair of sandals
and after the walk he noticed
they had given him a small blister on
the big toe of his left foot.
By Kate Pickles Health Reporter
MISSED doctors? appointments are
costing the NHS �6million a year ? the
equivalent of nearly 225,000 cataract
operations.
Around one in every 20 GP sessions goes to
waste because patients fail to attend or cancel without sufficient notice.
NHS England figures show that overall more
than 15million appointments with doctors, nurses,
therapists and other practice staff were missed
last year. Around 7.2million of those were with
busy GPs, which meant more than 1.2million
hours were wasted.
The missed GP appointments alone, at around
� each, cost the same as 216,000 drug treatment
courses for Alzheimer?s, 58,000 hip replacements
or the annual salary of 8,424 full time community
nurses, analysis by NHS England found.
Dr Nikki Kanani, acting director of primary care
for NHS England, said: ?our message is clear ? if
you cannot make it to your appointment or no
longer need a consultation, please let your GP
practice know in advance so the appointment can
be filled by another patient.?
rising demand and falling GP numbers mean it
is increasingly difficult for patients to see their
family doctor, with missed appointments adding
to this pressure. Latest figures show one in ten
patients face a wait of three weeks or more to see
someone at their local practice. Professor Helen
?I didn?t think anything about it,? said the
retired export sales director from St
Austell, Cornwall.
Tragically, today, Mr Witt has a constant
reminder of that moment. That tiny blister
turned into an infection which spread into the
bones in his foot.
When antibiotics failed to treat it, surgeons
operated to amputate what is known as the
forefoot ? the front section including all toes.
The 64-year-old, who was diagnosed with
Type 2 diabetes in 1999 ? when he admits he
was ?slightly overweight? ? had hoped that
would be that. But the wound did not heal and
18 months after the operation he was back in
hospital discussing further treatments.
?I was talking to the surgeon and told him I?d
got a holiday planned for the following week
and that I was going on a cruise the month
after that,? said Mr Witt. ?I said: ?I?ll come back
and face the music then.?
?He looked at me and said: ?You can?t possibly go away anywhere. You have got a serious
infection that could kill you.? ?
The following day, Mr Witt had a second
operation, this time to remove the left leg
below the knee. ?I went from a blister on my
big toe to losing a leg,? he said.
?You don?t realise how vulnerable you are
until something like this happens.?
The sad truth is that, across the country,
those learning of their ?vulnerabilities? in the
same way as Mr Witt have reached epidemic
levels. Every single week, 169 people undergo
amputations caused by diabetes, a rate
equivalent to one every hour of the day.
The figure has soared by 20 per cent in only
four years and is being blamed on the obesity
epidemic which has seen the number suffering
from diabetes double from 1.9 million to
3.7 million over the past two decades.
After Christmas, when so many of us have
been stuffed to the gills with rich food,
puddings and lashings of festive booze, they
are sobering figures.
About 90 per cent of patients suffer the Type
2 form of diabetes which is linked to lifestyle
and diet. An additional five million people in
the uK are living with prediabetes, or ?borderline diabetes?,

?You missed your appointment
last week ? where were you?!?
Stokes-Lampard, of the royal College of General
P ractitioners, said: ?When patients miss
appointments it can be a frustrating waste of
resources for GPs and our teams, but also for
other patients who are struggling to secure an
appointment for themselves.?
There are almost a million appointments a day
carried out in England, with numbers highest during winter months.
Additional evening and weekend appointments
were also made available over the festive period to
cope with rising demand.
Dr richard Vautrey, of the BMA union, said:
?Every appointment at a GP practice is precious,
especially at a time when GP services are struggling to cope with rising patient demand, staff
shortages and inadequate budgets.
?Practices will try many ways to address this
problem, but ultimately patients do need to play
their part.?
n PATIENTS who fail to return crutches, walking
sticks and wheelchairs cost the NHS millions each

did not keep track of equipment or record how
many crutches they issued.

amputations are preceded by
a diabetic foot ulcer. ?If your
nerves are damaged, you?ll be
less able to feel a cut or
wound, and if it?s in a place
you can?t see like on the sole
of your foot, then you might
not notice it at all,? says Dan
Howarth, from Diabetes uK.
?An untreated wound can
easily become infected, which
can lead to amputation.
Around half of people who
experience an amputation will
die within five years. This is
because an amputation is
generally indicative of other
problems in your body.
?If your blood vessels aren?t
working properly, then you?re
at risk of cardio -vascular
disease or stroke.?
T
HE charity says
that most amputations could be
avoided if people
with diabetes were given the
necessary care and is calling
for the NHS to continue its
investment in specialist foot
care programmes.
It says the Diabetes
Transformation Fund has
been successful in reducing
the rate of amputations ?
even if the overall number
having amputations continues to rise due to an increase
in those with the disease.

?They might be a bit short of

?I?m immune,? they say, but
the reality is that they aren?t.

once diagnosed with diabetes, many patients fail to
appreciate how dangerous the
condition can be. They are
points proven by the experience of 50-year-old restaurant
manager Colin rattray.
Diagnosed with Type 2
diabetes aged just 32, he is
enjoying his first days back

Because he was so ill at the
time of the operation, medics
were unable to give him a
general anaesthetic. Instead,
he had an epidural, an injection
into the back often used
during childbirth. While
numbing the lower half of his
body, it meant he was conscious during the amputation.
?I was cracking jokes with
the surgeon during it,? he says.
?I asked whether what my

The terrible
price I paid
as a victim
of Britain?s
diabetes
epidemic
Page 29
TODAY AFTER
LOSING HIS LEG
Every hour there?s now an amputation linked to
the illness, which costs the NHS �n a year. So
what WILL it take to beat this modern scourge?
his predicament. a keen sportsman, he suffered a knee injury at
the age of 21. Unable to continue
to play rugby and basketball, his
weight ballooned as his career in
the hospitality industry pro gressed. standing 6ft 3in, at his
heaviest he weighed 27st.
?I stopped exercising but continued eating and drinking and overconsuming in general,? said mr
Rattray, who lives in Dundee. ?I
enjoyed way too many things like
sausage rolls and pasties, Cokes
and cakes. and lots of alcohol.?
after his diagnosis with Type 2
diabetes in 2000, his condition was
controlled with medication.
?my only real symptom was
peeing a lot and they dealt with
that,? he says. ?so even after I was
diagnosed, I was still in denial.
?I had no idea about the longterm effects of the diabetes. I very
rarely went for check-ups because
I knew I would probably get a
lecture and I was in a place where
I thought I was immortal. I was
having fun and when I wasn?t
working I was socialising ? everything about my life was fun.?
In 2011 he stubbed the big toe on
his left foot. He ignored it for two
weeks then went to hospital. mr
Rattray recalls: ?The first nurse
who looked at it said: ?are you
diabetic by any chance?? I replied
?Yes? and he said: ?Those two toes
will be coming off.? ?
Even that operation failed to
change his attitude to the disease.
?You would have thought that
would been a big enough bite,? he
said. ?But it just made me feel even
more immortal and that I had got
away with one.?
Fast forward to February 2018
and after an ulcer developed on
his right foot, mr Rattray, who is
single, discovered he had also
broken a bone in it.
In the months that followed he
was in and out of hospital as
doctors sought to treat the
infection with antibiotics.
But by November, scans showed
the bones in the foot had suffered
extensive damage. at the same
time he also developed sepsis.
With his life at risk, mr Rattray
had no choice but to agree to the
removal of the lower part of his
right limb. Currently recovering in
hospital, he has had a prosthetic
limb fitted and accepts that the
future will be full of challenges.
B
UT he is determined
that, if nothing else,
others learn from his
experience. ?I would just
say think about what you are
eating,? he insists.
?There are so many sugars in so
many things. I used to probably
drink three or four cans of Coke a
day, combined with three coffees
with two sugars, a packet of biscuits and two or three mars bars.
?I would think I was giving myself
a bit of a sugar rush. But I was
killing myself. Literally. Don?t
ignore it. Deal with it. Learn from
my mistakes.?
as well as treating the problems
caused by diabetes, increasing
focus is being put on trying to
actually reverse the condition.
This year the NHs will roll out a
new low-calorie ?soup and shake?
diet to 5,000 patients who will be
prescribed a liquid-only diet of 800
calories a day.
NHs England said it would put
the regime at the heart of its new
diabetes strategy after smaller
trials saw half of patients go
into remission.
scientists at the universities of
Newcastle and Glasgow have been
pioneering the treatment of Type
2 diabetes with low-calorie diets
for several years.
In 2016 they showed for the first
time that the condition ? long
considered incurable ? could be
reversed with extreme dieting.
Further trials showed putting
people on the 800-calorie diet for
three months had lasting effects,

amputation of his left leg
with a quarter of participants
maintaining weight loss of at least
2st 5lb a year. some 46 per cent of
patients saw their blood sugar fall
by so much they were no longer
considered to be diabetic.
Isobel murray, 66, was one of the
first patients to be put on the
liquid diet to reverse diabetes. Her
GP suggested she try the regime
as part of the university trial. she
started the diet in 2014 weighing
15st, but over the next 18 months
lost four stones.
In 2016, she was told her diabetes
was in remission and she didn?t
need medication any longer.
Initially she was allowed only two
shakes, usually vanilla and chocolate, and two soups, mushroom
and vegetable, every day.
after 17 weeks she was able to
start reintroducing solid foods.
she reached her target weight
after around two years.
The former civil servant, who
lives in Largs, ayrshire, said: ?I was
absolutely determined to do something about my diabetes.
?although it?s been harsh it was
so worth it. I was an 18 going into

Which, for those living with the
condition, is all they want to hear.

Racism claim
from hapless
PCSO leaves
his force with
�k legal bill
By James Tozer
ETHIOPIAN-bOrN Tegegn
bayissa had claimed his
career was wrecked by ?deepseated and cunning? racism.
The police community support officer blamed colleagues?
prejudice for their refusal to let
him patrol unattended.
He insisted it was the only possible
explanation, given that his role was
?not rocket science? and one that
even a teenager could perform.
but when he brought a race discrimination claim, the true reason
emerged ? for the PCSO had made a
catalogue of basic errors, one of
which could have seen him arrested.
After hearing how senior officers
had given Mr bayissa every chance
?He underestimated
the role?s difficulty?
to learn the ropes, an employment
tribunal rejected his claim on every
one of 47 points. However, Greater
Manchester Police has now been
left with a reported �,000 legal
bill after he said he was unable to
cover its costs.
University-educated Mr bayissa
joined the force as a �,000-a-year
PCSO in 2014 as part of a drive to
attract more ethnic minority officers.
Humiliatingly, he managed to
mess up a routine exercise securitymarking bicycles at a family fun
day, failing to apply lacquer on top
of the ink which meant the details
could be wiped off easily by a thief.
He was given a warning after failing to report an assault following a
road crash, admitting he did not
know what officers were meant to
do after a traffic accident.
On one occasion he found a mobile
phone, but instead of handing it in
Basic errors: Tegegn Bayissa
to lost property he put it in his
drawer ? which could have led to his
arrest. One shopkeeper on his beat
refused to believe he was a genuine
PCSO because he did not appear to
know what he was doing.
Mr bayissa claimed that ?officers
had been desperate to find fault in
his actions?. In 2016 he quit, launching a race claim.
Mr bayissa argued that he was a
victim of ?deep-seated and cunning
police racism?, asking: ?What part of
PCSO?s role is so difficult for a man
who has a university level education? A teenager with not much life
experience can work as a PCSO.
The role ... was not rocket science.?
However, the tribunal panel disagreed, saying that senior officers
had displayed huge patience as he
struggled. Mr bayissa had been
?resistant to the suggestion that
there was anything he could learn
arising from incidents he had
encountered?, they said, adding: ?It
appears to us that [he] underestimated the difficulty of the role.?
Yesterday at his Manchester
home Mr bayissa, who is now
unemployed, said he did not accept
the tribunal?s conclusions but had
run out of money to appeal ? or pay
the police?s legal costs.

What an old fraud!
When she died at 122 she was regarded as the longest living person
ever. Now researchers claim she was just a 99-year-old imposter
Wealthy: A young Jeanne Calment
By David Wilkes
SHE lived to the ripe old age of
122 years and 164 days, despite
smoking until she was 116 and
enjoying her red wine and
weekly bars of chocolate.
Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment
became a global celebrity before
her death in 1997 and still
holds the record as the world?s
oldest person.
But now that age is being challenged
by a scientist who claims she was a 99year-old imposter.
Russian researcher Nikolay Zak says
?Madame Calment?, as she was known
throughout France and beyond, was
actually Jeanne?s daughter Yvonne,
who assumed her mother?s identity
when she died to avoid paying crippling inheritance tax.
According to Mr Zak, the elaborate
deception began in 1934, the year
Yvonne?s death from pneumonia at the
age of 36 was registered.
He claims it was in fact Jeanne who
died that year, aged 59, and suggests
Yvonne, her only daughter, started pretending to be her.
He cites ?multiple contradictions? in
Jeanne Calment?s interviews, biographies, photos, and documents to support his assertion.
Mr Zak claims Yvonne managed to

Big Brother mogul to hand

A
S THE arch luvvie who popularised Big Brother, Peter Bazalgette

JANUARY is the perfect time to banish bad
financial habits and get clever with your cash.
Here the Money Mail team gives its top tips
for how to save ? and make ? money in 2019.
Gather all your paperwork
1important
and make a note of every
financial anniversary in
a diary. this includes your home
and car policy renewal dates, vehicle tax, Mot, breakdown cover, tV
licence, fixed-rate savings
accounts, mortgage, energy tariff
and broadband deals. It means
you?ll never miss a deadline or pay
over the odds for anything.
StIck up for yourself. Don?t be
afraid of complaining if you feel
you have been wronged. You never
know, you might get a voucher or
your money back. If you have
received good service, it can also
pay to praise companies. Some
firms send customers a voucher or
free gift as a thank-you for the positive feedback.

Be SMart at the super3
market. Visit after 5pm and
follow the staff member carrying

twice for the same insurance.
Many bank accounts offer free
travel, mobile phone and
breakdown cover. home insurance
policies also often cover items
outside the house. Be sure your
spouse and children aren?t paying
for separate cover when they are
protected under your policy.
aVoID wasting money on
branded everyday medicines
such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and
antihistamines. Just because the
tablets come in a shiny box does
not mean they will work better.
for example, at Morrisons, ownbrand ibuprofen will set you back

reVIew your direct debit
11
payments. axe any unused
subscriptions and consider
switching expensive gym memberships for cheap fitness classes at
your local leisure centre.
for an added incentive, work out
how much cancelling the monthly
payment could save over the
course of a year. Paying �99 a
month for film streaming service
Netflix, for example, might not
seem a lot but that?s nearly �0
a year.
KEEP receipts on
12
bouquets that
promise
flowers will
remain fresh
for a minimum
period. It
means that
if your
flowers fade
prematurely,
you can complain
and demand either
a refund or a
new bouquet.
Make loyalty pay. Many
13
traditional stores now use
loyalty cards to keep customers
coming back. waterstones, tesco
and Boots are among the household
names to offer money-off rewards
in exchange for loyalty points.
If you enjoy a coffee out, get it
from the same shop. Most coffee
shops offer free drinks to loyal
customers once you?ve collected
enough stamps. caffe Nero offers a
free drink for every nine loyalty
stamps collected.

London exodus
LONDONERS spent more than
� billion on property outside the
capital last year ? the most in a
decade. In 2018 they bought 74,350
homes in other regions, according to
estate agents Hamptons International. In 2007 this figure was 113,640.
Aneisha Beveridge, head of research
at Hamptons, says: ?As affordability
in the capital is stretched, households
are looking beyond London to buy
their first home.?
Investor woes
INVESTORS suffered turbulent
market conditions last year as only
eight sectors delivered positive
returns. UK Direct Property, which

4.75 pc, performed the best out of
the Investment Association?s 37 categories, according to investment
manager Tilney. UK Index-linked
Gilts was the next-best performer,
delivering a return of 3.25 pc.
Flood risk
HOMEOWNERS at risk of flooding
are expected to see their building and
contents premium fall by up to �2 a
year. From January, insurers will get a
cheaper deal on flood risk cover
through the Flood Re scheme, a joint
initiative between insurers and the
government. It?s anticipated they will
pass on the savings to policyholders.
House prices
HOUSE price rises in Scotland
outstripped the rest of the UK last
year, according to property site
Zoopla. The average Scottish home?s
value increased by 6.43 pc to
�5,739. England reported just a
0.58 pc rise, with properties now
worth �5,839 on average. In
London prices fell by 1.67 pc, but an
average property is still �3,587.
0 pc deals
CREDIT card providers have slashed
the length of their 0 pc deals by more
than a third in the past two years. At
the beginning of 2017, ten credit card
providers offered 0 pc interest for 40
months, according to MoneyComms
and Totally Money. Today the longest
deal is 32 months with the Post Office,
with a 2 pc fee. The longest fee-free

according to ClearScore. Late

INHERITANCE TAX
EVERYONE can pass on up to

when they die. There is also a main
residence allowance, which is
�5,000 per person. This means
that anyone who owns a home can
pass on up to �0,000 of wealth
without inheritance tax being due.
From april 6, this will increase
again to �0,000. so an individual
would have a total allowance of
�5,000 (�0,000 for married couples and civil partners).
To qualify for the extra allowance
you must have previously lived
in the property and leave it to
a direct descendant.
THEsE are set to rise across the
country from april 2020. Individual
councils set their own levy, so the
extra amount will depend on where

By Fiona Parker
IT TOOK Alan Watling nearly
four years, endless emails and
court action but he finally
won compensation for a
delayed flight that saw him
get home at well past 4am.
Alan, 71, had been returning home
from a three-day trip to Valencia with
his partner, Jenny Cooper, 70, in
September 2014.
But after arriving at the airport,
easyJet said their 9.10pm flight to
Stansted was delayed by four hours.
Alan and Jenny had been hoping to
arrive home around midnight.
After landing at around 2.45am
local time, the couple spent half an
hour getting through security, before
making the one-hour drive home to
Maidstone, Kent.
?I was exhausted, but we just had to
press on,? Alan says.
?fortunately, I am semi-retired, so I

Alan knew that as the delay was
more than three hours, he and Jenny
would each be entitled to ?250 (�5)
compensation under Eu law.
However, three months after the
airline had been emailed, easyJet
wrote back rejecting his claim.
The customer service representative claimed the delay had been
caused by a bird strike, which was an
extraordinary circumstance.

My tips to protect you
in 2019 if disaster
(or Corbyn!) strikes
HAppY New Year ? I hope.
It seems a long time since
investor confidence was so
fragile and the general
economic mood so gloomy
at the start of the year.
Throughout December every
step up in share prices was
followed by two steps down.
Global economic fears, trade
rows between the U.S. and China
and the increasing chance of the
UK crashing out of the EU have
helped build a wall of gloom.
For UK investors there?s an
added worry: the possibility of a
Corbyn-led government putting
John McDonnell and his Marxiststyle agenda into Number 11
Downing Street.
Could this really happen? Well,
yes, if the collective bunch of
squabbling twerps who call
themselves the Conservative
party continue to put their own
self-interests above the greater
good of the nation.
Anyone under the age of 55 who
has never experienced a full-on
socialist government might want
to mull over a few economic facts
from the Seventies: Basic rate
income tax, 35 pc. Top rate of
income tax, 83 pc. Inflation peak,
24.2 pc. Bank of England base
rate peak, 15 pc.
It is foolish to try to predict
what lies ahead. As Adrian
Lowcock, of Willis Owen, told
me: ?2017 was characterised by
low stock market volatility and
at the end of the year forecasters
couldn?t see that changing.
?Yet it changed almost immediately in 2018. Just because 2018
ended with some volatility, and,

Investor
will continue in 2019. Most years
see big falls in the market of
10 pc or more, so what we have
seen so far is in keeping with normal behaviour.?
But as investors we can take
some precautions.
Our personal tax burden is at
the highest it has been for 50
years with 34.6 pc of family
income going to The Treasury.
Income tax is only part of the
story as VAT, inheritance tax,
stamp duty and insurance
premium tax take ever-larger
chunks of our money.
The obvious first step is to take
full advantage of the tax perks
offered by Isas and pensions.
Isas, particularly cash ones, may
seem pointless while we are
allowed to earn �000 of interest
a year tax-free and interest rates
are so low.
But consider if McDonnell
becomes Chancellor and
profligate spending results in rising inflation and interest rates.
Additionally there?s nothing to
stop any Chancellor withdrawing
that �000 allowance or restricting it to basic-rate taxpayers.
Isa contribution limits could
also be reduced but it would be a
lot more politically controversial
to abolish tax benefits for money
already in Isas, especially as the
scheme was set up by Labour?s
Gordon Brown. pensions offer an
option for longer-term savings.
Contributions get tax relief so
that?s less of your money going in
tax and more into savings.
Inheritance tax is taking an
increasing whack from estates of
those who die.
Labour seems unhappy about
the residence allowance that will
eventually increase to �million
the maximum tax-free amount
that can be gifted, for couples
who own their home and have

I?m not suggesting you do away
with grandad and grandma fast if
Labour looks like winning an
election. But those in a position
to give away cash could avoid
their children or grandchildren
losing 40 pc tax on a gift as long
as one survives for seven years.
Turning back to investments,
what should we do in the face
of volatility and falling
share prices?
Experience suggests the best
option is to hunker down.
I bought a couple of small
chunks of a tracker following the
American S&p 500 index in
December.
It has continued down but I
bought for considerably less than
it would have cost a few months
previously, and consider it a long-
Kick off year with a savings habit
A NEW year is the perfect time to
start a regular savings habit.
Saving money each month will help you
build up a nest egg to protect against
financial shocks.
It is also a good way to spread the cost of
expensive purchases such as holidays.
Regular savings accounts with banks and
building societies pay far higher rates than
easy access deals ? which will help your pot
grow faster.
However, you must be realistic about how
much you can afford to save each month.
One in ten savers who planned to put money
aside regularly last year gave up after just one
month, according to research by Britain?s
fifth largest building society, Leeds BS. Four
out of ten had quit by the middle of the year.
The danger here is that some regular savings
deals will slash your rate to a pittance if you
need to access your cash before the end of
the year.
Remember that with regular savings deals
By Sylvia Morris
you only earn interest once the money hits
your account. So if you save �0 a month for
a year, your first payment will earn interest
for 12 months but your final �0 will see just
one month?s worth of interest.
To get an idea of how much to expect after
a year, tot up the amount you hope to save.
Then divide your interest rate by two and
apply this figure to your total yearly savings.
Some accounts will let you dip into your
savings during the year and continue earning
the same rate of interest.
For example, Virgin Money Regular Saver,
available through its branches, pays a fixed
rate of 3 pc on up to �0 a month.
You can take money out at any time without
losing the 3 pc rate. With a �0 monthly
saving you?ll end up with �218, including �
interest. Saffron BS?s Regular Saver is similar
and pays a slightly higher 3.5 pc. On each �0
a month, you?ll build up �222 including �
interest. You could get a better return with
your current account provider ? but they are
usually less flexible because you can?t touch
your money unless you shut the account and
you?ll lose the premium rate.
First Direct Regular Saver, available to its
1st Account holders, pays 5 pc on sums
between � and �0. A �0-a-month saving
will be worth �232 after a year including
interest. Marks & Spencer?s Bank offers a
similar deal, also at 5 pc, on up to �0 a
month. At HSBC you will earn 3 pc or 5 pc
depending on which current account you
have. At Santander the rate is 3 pc and differs
in that you can take money out during the
year without being penalised.
Halifax Regular Saver is open to all
customers rather than just its current
account holders, and pays 2 pc.
Nationwide?s Flex Regular Online Saver
pays 5 pc. The rate is variable ? so can change
at any time ? but it does let you take money
out if you need to.

term investment. My younger
stepson ? a novice investor ?
texted me last month to say he
was planning to suspend his
monthly savings until the stock
market settled down.
I hope I?ve dissuaded him.
You won?t find the bottom of
the market, but regular monthly
saving means you will be building up more of the investment to
benefit when prices do eventually turn. And when they turn
they can rise pretty swiftly.
Jason Hollands, of financial
planners Tilney, says: ?Over
short-time periods, markets have
a tendency to lurch between
hope and fear, invariably overshooting each way.
?Over the past 30 calendar
years, the FTSE All Share has
seen seven calendar years of
negative returns (in total return
terms). The good news is that
down years are typically followed
by very positive returns in the
next year.?
And it?s not all doom and gloom.
Norwich City sit close to the top

this time next year I?ll be

With rates set to stay super low in 2019...
Saving: Craig and wife Karen

Why overpaying
your mortgage

This simple step could save you
thousands of pounds in interest and
help you clear your debt years earlier
than planned.
With mortgage rates set to stay low,
there has never been a better time to
overpay. Even if it?s by just a few
extra pounds each month, it could
make a real difference.

If you received an HMV gift
card for Xmas, spend it NOW!
ANYONE with an HMV giftcard is being urged
to spend it as soon as possible following the
company?s collapse over Christmas.
Gift cards will be accepted as long as the
business continues to trade, but it is not yet
known what will happen to stores.
KPMG, the administrator, says the shop will
offer exchanges for unwanted items, but
not refunds.
If your goods are faulty you can still demand
your money back.
If you have ordered something online you will
only receive it if the item is in stock.
But KPMG claims everything available on the
website is in stock and should arrive as
normal. If not, contact customer services on
0333 323 4754. If you paid for goods worth more
than �0 on credit card, you can request a

refund from your bank under Section 75 of the
Consumer Credit Act.
If you used a debit card you can ask your bank
to reverse the payment under so-called
chargeback rules.
Currently, retailers are not obliged to honour
gift cards or unshipped orders if they go bust.
But ministers are now proposing new
protections.
These would cover gift cards, vouchers and
savings clubs.
A spokesman for KPMG says that while it
considers potential options for the future of
HMV, including a sale, it will endeavour to
operate all stores as usual.

Hollingworth says: ?If you have a big
mortgage with very little savings to offset against the loan it is likely to be
better to get a traditional mortgage
with the lowest possible rate.?

MY MOTHER, who is 97, has had to go
into a care home. The fees are about
�500 per month, which will be paid
from her savings and the proceeds of
the sale of her house, though there is
little sign of the sale at the moment.
My brother and I have joint power of
attorney. We have had no problems
accessing my mother?s accounts at
Barclays and Nationwide, but Halifax
is insisting we present ourselves personally at the same branch to withdraw �,000 from her account there.
We live at opposite sides of the country. He is in Cornwall and I?m in Essex.
We have provided identification to
confirm our identities at local branches.
These funds are vital, but Halifax has
refused to change its stance.
I wrote to the Financial Ombudsman,
which sent a confirmation email saying it would respond in four weeks.
But four weeks has gone and
there has been no progress ?
this matter is becoming urgent.
Mrs P. H., Essex.
I told Halifax it was behaving in
a ridiculous manner. How can it
expect people who live at opposite
sides of the country to present
themselves at the same branch?
this illustrates how banks are
making life hard for people who
are acting as power of attorney.
the Financial ombudsman has
also not covered itself in glory, as
I found when I spoke to you.
the initial feedback you were
given left you with the impression
it was likely to side with Halifax
based on legal arguments. there
are times when common sense is
more important than legal arguments. that?s what the Financial
ombudsman used to be about.
once I made contact, Halifax
swiftly came up with a compromise. Its initial difficulty was that
you were ?joint? powers of attorney
rather than ?joint and several?,
which would have let you act individually. But, as I said, there is no
reason why one of you should not
give written permission for the
other to act in certain instances.
Halifax said you can each send
a signed letter to an address it has
provided detailing how much you
want to be paid and where it
should go. A longer-term solution

WHAT TO DO
WITH THOSE
NOT SO PERFECT
PRESENTS
Money Mail, December 26
SOME shops don?t take returns on
Boxing Day or December 27. It?s
like they want to make returning
things as hard as possible, so we
give up. As for vouchers, I?d prefer a tenner to spend anywhere.
B.H., Edinburgh.
IF A present is faulty, tell the
person who bought it, to get a
replacement. I don?t think people
should get cash or store credit if
they don?t like a gift. Why not
donate it to a charity shop?

would be to close the account and
move the funds. this can be done
with two signed letters, one from
each of you, detailing the intention to close the account and how
you want to receive the money.
the customer services team has
contacted you to explain this. But
someone should have taken the
common sense approach earlier
? especially when you contacted
the ombudsman. You opted to
close the account.
A Halifax spokesperson says:
?due to the joint signing rights on
the power of attorney, we require
both parties to be present in the
same branch for withdrawal.
?the exceptional circumstances
presented to us in this case have
prompted us to look at possible
alternatives, which we have agreed
with Mrs H and her brother. We
apologise to them for the stress
and inconvenience this caused.?
MY WIFE and I flew from LA to
Newcastle via Heathrow on June
MY LATE husband had 252 shares in Aviva
and I?ve been trying for months to replace
his name with mine on the share certificate. I?ve complied with every request
made by the company, Computershare.
I?ve sent his death certificate, a copy of the
will and �.50. But all I have received is
a share certificate with his name on it.
J.W., Carshalton, Surrey.
CoMpUtERsHARE says it registered your
husband?s death in early August and sent you
a stock transfer form. However, it claims you
made some errors on the form which led to
the certificate being issued in your husband?s
name. then the certificate went missing, so
you had to pay an extra �.50 for a duplicate
copy on top of a � admin fee. Computershare says it will complete the transfer and
refund the �.50 as a gesture of goodwill.

want to risk walking far.
At Heathrow, we were taken in
the wheelchairs to a seating
area to wait for our next flight.
But when it was time to go
through security, only one
wheelchair appeared. I asked
where the second one was, and
was told only one was reserved
and nothing could be done.
I told my wife to take the chair
as she suffered from leg pains,
and I spent an hour walking to
the gate. At Newcastle, two
wheelchairs were waiting.
A couple of weeks later I was
hospitalised with heart problems. I was told they were a
result of the excess strain caused
by the long walk at Heathrow.
If it was not for the skill of the
doctors I am not sure I would
have pulled through.
When I complained, BA told
me it is Heathrow?s responsibility to deal with customers with
reduced mobility. I am shocked
at the way the airline shrugged

Tenerife in November 2016. Will we be able

A.B., Yorkshire.
YoU are referring to a new voluntary code of
conduct expected to be published early this
year. Its aim is to force banks to do more to
stop fraud and be more consistent in how they
treat victims. But banks signing up to the
code will not have to apply the rules retrospectively, so it will likely be no use to you.

could have cost me my life.
J.J., Newcastle.
It Is understandable your first
port of call was BA, given that
you reserved the wheelchairs
through its website.
In an email BA said it was ?truly
sorry? you had to walk so far, but
a change in EU legislation meant
it was no longer responsible for
customers with reduced mobility
and directed you to Heathrow.
It is the airport?s responsibility
to provide customer wheelchairs
? but the EU legislation is not
new. While the airline says it takes
its responsibilities to customers
with disabilities ?extremely seriously?, it is a shame it did not offer
to liaise with Heathrow for you.
Heathrow uses a company called
omniserv to take care of wheelchair requests.
When I contacted Heathrow it

of its service standards. It regrets

IBERIA Airlines says it could not find any

you did not make the payments and will

Make your money work
MONEY Mail was launched
in 1966 with the slogan: ?You
work hard for your money,
so make it work hard
for you.?
I cannot think of a more fitting
motto for the start of any New Year.
There is so much we cannot control
? political uncertainty, trade rows,
stock market turmoil... but we can
take simple and effective steps to
protect our finances.
Official figures show that Britons
are spending a record amount on
credit cards and saving less than
ever. It is vital we get back into
the savings habit.
Our savings guru Sylvia Morris,
on Page 44, says that signing up to
a regular savings account is a
brilliant way to start. Simply set
up a direct debit for a set amount
to come out on the day your salary
or pension lands, so you don?t even
have to think about it.
Our prudent investor Tony Hazell
also echoes the importance of
investing each month. He admits
it might be tempting to press
pause on this until stock market

turbulence passes, but if you keep
going you stand to benefit when
the tide finally turns.
Another option ? as we point out
on Page 45 ? is to use any spare
cash to pay down your mortgage.
With interest rates so low, you?ll
struggle to get a guaranteed return
to match the reduction in interest
charges and the tempting proposal
of clearing your loan early.
And even if you have no debt and
already save religiously, there is
always something more you can
do to boost your budget.
For inspiration, read our guide
starting on Page 36 ? and please
do send in your own top money
saving tips to share with others.
Cashback bonus

ONE of my New Year?s resolutions
is to make better use of cashback
websites when buying online.
Companies such as Quidco and
TopCashback pay you just for
clicking through their website.
It sounds suspiciously too good
to be true, but that?s really all there
is to it.
You sign up with an email address,
search for the company you want
and then wait to be directed to its
website ? where you continue your
business.
Despite only remembering to

to pounce on companies which let
their customers down.
But we also like to give credit
where it is due, and Money Mail?s
Tony Hazell has stumbled across
a brilliant example of a large
corporation doing a really
good deed. Please put your hands
together for BT?s ?MyDonate?
fundraising website.
Most of us will have heard of
online fundraising giants JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving.
But whereas JustGiving deducts

takes 2 pc, BT?s MyDonate is a
not-for-profit service.
Charities do not have to pay any

they register.
It means that aside from a small
card processing fee, every penny
raised goes to the charity.
Well done BT.

the sight of an exhausted
detective snatching some shut-eye,
fully clothed with head on folded
arms, is a convention of crime
dramas. Brenda Blethyn?s Vera
does it all the time. Young Morse
(shaun evans) does it at his
desk. And idris elba wouldn?t
think of doing it any other way in
Luther (BBc1).
this tradition goes back to Jack
Regan, the two -fisted copper
played by John thaw in the
sweeney, whose slumbers were
usually fuelled by half a bottle of
supermarket scotch.
Luther harks back to this era of
no-nonsense crimebusting in other
ways. He drives a Volvo that?s old
enough to have given rides to the
Kray twins, and his jokes are so
callous that they?d make Jack the
Ripper laugh.
When one of his informants was
taken hostage by a local ganglord,
Luther recalled what happened to
the last bloke to upset the Boss:
?they blew his head off.? A moment
later we realised that he meant this
literally ? the snitch had a bomb
strapped round his neck.

seems to bristle with icicles.
With two superb stars, the
emphasis on demonic violence
can only damage the drama and
turn viewers off.
All the violence in Amazon:
Earth?s Great Rivers (BBc2) was,
thankfully, threatened but never
seen. the film crews waded
into waters churning with
razor-toothed piranhas, murder-
ous caiman crocodiles and
immense anacondas.
One cameraman was horrified
to spot an electric eel, the size of
a cricket bat, swimming towards
him to deliver a 1,000-volt shock.
He barely got out of the water in
time ? a jolt like that could paralyse an elephant.
Despite the dangers, this was
an extraordinarily beautiful film,
all shot in the kind of high-definition sharp focus that you
might expect to see on an array
of demonstration screens in the
telly department at John Lewis.
there was a psychedelic
gorgeousness to it, as greenwinged macaws clung to red salt
cliffs, and waterfalls plunged into
steaming lakes heated to 100c by
underground magma pools.
David Oyelowo, currently playing Javert in Les Miserables on
sunday nights, narrated it all in
a dreamily sonorous voice.
tucked away in the schedules,
this was an easy documentary to
miss. But if, after the horrors of
christmas and Luther, you need
something to soothe the mind,
it?s unbeatable.

Migrant strategy
THE Government has failed to
prevent illegal immigrants entering
the uK since the Nineties. This has
cost the taxpayer millions, when
Labour and Conservative governments could have stopped it.
The migrants have all travelled
through several safe European
countries, where they should have
claimed asylum. uK governments
have failed to return stowaways on
Channel ferries immediately to
france. The french should then
return them to Italy or the safe
country in which they first arrived.
There is talk of more Border force
cutters and royal Navy ships patrolling the Channel ? but even if there
were 1,000 ships, all they would do is
collect the migrants and bring them
to England to claim asylum.
The only way to deter migrants
from paying smugglers is to make it
plain they are returned to france.
And there should be far harsher
penalties for anyone convicted of
smuggling, trafficking, hiding or
employing illegal immigrants.

Recycling confusion
WE ArE urged to make greater
efforts to sort our waste to aid local
council recycling schemes. But no
matter how well-intentioned we are,
it is difficult to decide what goes
where ? we don?t all have a degree in
waste management.
There are so many packages
consisting of mixed materials. Milk
or drink bottles with a coloured
collar, multi-coloured containers,
recyclable food trays with thin foil
covers that are impossible to remove,
paper food bags with a plastic lining
and other wrappings with a stuck-on
label. Even if we could identify and
separate everything, we would need
a dozen bins by the back door.
It?s not good enough for manufacturers to say ?check local guidelines?.
Nor is it good enough to load the
cost on the customer. Manufacturers
are forcing the stuff onto us, so we
should be charging them.

THERE is a case for hospitals to
charge for parking, but a new
approach is needed. Free
parking would make it difficult
for people visiting the hospital,
as shoppers and office workers
would take advantage. Most
visits last less than a couple of
hours, so limited free parking
could be a solution. There is
nearly always an arrangement
for frequent visitors. For staff
parking, a separate car park
could ensure there would
always be spaces.

IT IS disappointing that the BBC and
the Agatha Christie estate do not seem
to understand the nature of the author.
Scriptwriter Sarah Phelps of The ABC
Murders seemed contemptuous of the
Christie legacy, thinking nothing of
changing the plot and incorporating
bad language and violence. In the
books, a murder takes place among the
everyday aspects of life, often in
chocolate-box villages. The
perpetrator, initially an apparent
bastion of the community, turns out to
be a cad, but is not a crude stereotype
of a serial killer in the modern sense.
Christie would demonstrate this by
gradually throwing little chinks of light
onto her characters as the novel

Straight to the
Clueless: John Malkovich as Poirot
progressed, but these were subtle and
accompanied by knowledge of the law,
poison and human weakness. She was
never concerned with crude
descriptions of violence and gutter
language, but wrote with a light touch.
Her detectives were individual in their
eccentricity and their lateral approach
to the facts. Therefore, how sad that in
trying to resurrect her work for a
modern audience, the BBC does not
seem to have a clue how her mind
worked. The BBC?s annual Christie
production is more an exercise in the
destruction of the author?s ethos for an
audience not familiar with the books.
Instead of preserving Christie?s
approach, they seek to destroy it. I am

that the Government is continually telling the public

Police officers at the sharp

Harry FoStEr, Middlesbrough, n. yorks.

iniquitous. To make staff pay is beyond

QUESTION
What was the first
motorised van?
The word van, used for a medium-sized
road goods vehicle, arose as a contraction
of the word caravan. The earliest records
of van as a vehicle in english are in the
19th century, meaning a covered wagon
for transporting goods ? the earliest
reported record was 1829.
Motorised vans date back to the earliest days of the automobile. In 1896,
the two German pioneers Carl Benz
and Gottlieb Daimler were in
direct competition, developing
trucks with diesel engines. It
wasn?t until 1926 that the companies merged.
The world?s first flat-bed
motorised truck was produced
by Daimler and delivered to a
customer in London in 1896.
Carl Benz was simultaneously
working towards a different type
of commercial vehicle at his
Gasmotoren Fabrik Mannheim
factory. his focus was on buses and
trucks, which he called combination
delivery vehicles.
The first Benz van was delivered to
Paris department store Le Bon March�.
It was a small box van, based on Benz
Velo, one of the world?s first passenger
cars. It featured a rear-mounted 1.8 kW
engine, had a top speed of 20mph and
caused a sensation on Paris?s boulevards.
By the end of the century, Benz was
offering an increasing range of vans sold
as a coach with a closed body. From 1898,
he was producing vehicles with threespeed transmission, a 400kg payload rolling on solid rubber tyres and small
coaches with a detachable box body.

In Test cricket,
what is the percentage of successes for the team
that wins the toss?
QUESTION
BeTWeen 1877 and 2018, there have
been a total of 2,284 Test matches. The
home side has won the toss 1,202 times,
have elected to bat 868 times and sent in
the opposition 333 times. The home side
has won 525 matches, drawn 382 and lost
295 ? a win percentage of 43.68.
The touring side lost 1,202 tosses, won
295 matches, drawn 382 and lost 525 ? a
win percentage of 24.54.
The touring side won the toss 1,082
times, elected to bat 788 times and sent
in the opposition 294 times. having done
so, the tourists have won 302 matches,
drawn 366 and lost 414 ? a win percentage of 27.91.
The home side lost the toss 1,082 times,
won 414 matches, drew 366 and lost 302 a win percentage of 38.26.
It is clear that throughout the history of
Test cricket, winning the toss has conferred a small advantage. The home
team wins 43.68 per cent of the games
when they win the toss compared
with 38.26 per cent when they
lose it; the ratio being 27.91 to
24.54 for the touring side. What
the statistics demonstrate is
the ascendency of home
advantage.
The advantage of winning
the toss has become more
pronounced in recent times.
In the last decade, the win
percentage for the home
side winning the toss has
risen to 53.97 per cent and
for the touring side it is up to
33.66 per cent.
The win percentage for the
home side when they lose the
toss has increased to 45.37, while
the win percentage of the touring
side when they lose the toss has dipped
slightly to 23.43.
In the era of one-day cricket and
Twenty-20, Test match cricket is a more
swashbuckling affair and less likely to
result in a draw.
There have been calls to remove the
coin toss from the game, particularly in
light of england captain Joe Root winning
a remarkable eight successful coin tosses
in a row at odds of 256-1.
This is clearly far less significant than
home advantage.
David E. Myles, Birmingham.

the tories simply stole a
key plank of labour policy
and made it their own.
Nothing has agitated consumers more
in recent times than the way in which
power prices rise inexorably, irrespective of events on wholesale markets.
the big six energy groups plainly are the
main culprits being targeted by the Government, because default tariffs hit the
poorest consumers hardest ? along with
those who pay the loyalty penalty by not
shopping around. But government itself is
not innocent in any of this.
Much of what we pay in our fuel bills, both
at the petrol pumps and for domestic heating, comes in the shape of taxation.
in the case of domestic bills we are all paying for green taxes, for transmission investment and nuclear decommissioning.
on the surface, it must be a good thing
that 11m people (according to official data)
could save an average of � per year on fuel

approach. it spells trouble for future investment by disincentivising the energy industry, and creates distortions.

be warned!
Remembering Minos
tHE veteran, Harvard-educated, Greekborn banker Minos Zombanakis, 92, who
died shortly before christmas in his native
crete, was an innovative financier who
helped revive the city of london and turn it
into an economic powerhouse.
tall and imposing, Zombanakis was a key
player in the development of london as the
home of the syndicated loan market, where
bankers came together to finance big corporations and nations with borrowing costs
based on the london interbank offered
Rate (libor).
As a commercial banker at Manufacturers
Hanover, he worked on the first such
euro-loans for Us companies in the early
1970s, creating a city-based market which
grew from $10bn in 1972 to $180bn a
decade later.
He was author in 1983 of what the Economist dubbed the ?Zombanakis Plan?, which
proposed extending the role of the international Monetary Fund in bail-outs of
indebted countries.
in his later years he was largely responsible for bringing saudi Arabia, through his
role as a senior executive at chase Manhattan, into the mainstream of global finance.
No one was more exasperated and disgusted at the greed which disgraced banking in the run-up to the great financial crisis
of 2008-09 than Zombanakis ? and in particular, at the distortion of the ethics he
valued strongly.
A great, serious financial thinker, he will
be much missed by his family and those of
us privileged to call him a friend.
Retailers accused of pocketing windfall after oil plummets
by Lucy White
GREEDY supermarkets are
pocketing huge profits from
a fall in the oil price instead
of cutting costs at the pump,
experts have warned.
Motorists are overdue a hefty
cut of around 4p per litre after oil
suffered its worst year since 2015,
according to the RAc.
the price of Brent crude, the international benchmark for oil, slumped
by nearly 20pc last year and is now
around $53.80.
this means wholesale costs have
fallen for petrol and diesel retailers.
But petrol prices at the pump for
motorists are just 0.2pc down from
where they started last year, and
diesel costs 5.3pc more.
it means fuel retailers have not
passed this on to consumers, triggering claims they have trousered
the windfall for themselves.
Pete williams, of the RAc, said:
?the last few days of 2018 have seen
the price of a barrel of oil drop dramatically, and the wholesale prices
of unleaded and diesel are now at
their lowest for 24 months. However,
we have to question whether drivers
will see a benefit, as the retailers
have been reluctant to pass on
recent savings they have made.
?we were hoping to see some festive spirit, but so far it?s been bah,
humbug from the retailers.?
the average price of unleaded
stands at 120.8p per litre and diesel is 130.03p, according to RAc
data as of December 30.
Although pump prices are
closely linked to oil, tax is also a
factor. customers are charged fuel
duty which goes to the treasury ?
currently this is 57.95p for every
litre of petrol or diesel they buy.
Fuel duty in the UK has been
frozen by the tories since 2010.
VAt is also charged at 20pc.
But even after accounting for
tax, williams said a cut of 4p a
litre for both unleaded petrol
cutting 2p a litre from fuel at the
beginning of December.
the reduction meant drivers
would pay no more than 116.7p
per litre on unleaded and 127.7p
on diesel at Asda.
other firms appear to be less
willing to engage in price battles,
and instead have pocketed the
money saved through lower
wholesale costs.
williams said: ?we hope that the
recent behaviour from retailers,
retaining the savings they have
made as a result of falling wholesale prices, will be reversed and
that they play fair with drivers.?
cuts in 2019 would be a welcome
boon to households as they should
help to tame inflation, helping pay
packets stretch further.
A slew of factors could influence
the oil price over the next year,
including the level of market supply and demand, political tensions
in the Middle East, Us fracking
and the strength of the pound
against the dollar.
in November, analysts at JP
Morgan cut their predictions for
Brent crude in 2019, saying it would average $73
per barrel.

B LU E - C H I P c o m p a n i e s
could see a host of bosses
quit this year as 17 chief
executives in the FTSE 100
near retirement age.
Almost a fifth of Footsie bosses
are older than 60, nearly double
the number it was 20 years ago.

The stage is now set for an exodus
as they step down, continuing a rush
for the exits which began last year,
when there were the most departures since the banking crash.
The oldest Footsie bosses include
Arnold Donald, 64, chief executive
of cruise ship firm Carnival; Standard Life Aberdeen co-chief Martin
Gilbert, 63; BP chief Bob Dudley,
63; and United Utilities chief Steve
Mogford, 62.

chief Geoff Drabble, 59, will step
aside for Brendan Horgan, 45.
And Direct Line Insurance boss
Paul Geddes, 49, is set to leave
this summer.
Russ Mould, investment director of AJ Bell, said that pushy
investors have made life harder
at the top of big businesses and
this is prompting some bosses to
step down.
He said: ?The FTSE 100 has
gone nowhere fast in the past 24
months, so there is pressure from
fund managers to perform. Activists are also raising the
temperature.
?There are so many of them now
they are branching out of their
domestic hunting ground in
America and looking overseas.
?And when they come, they
come with their classic checklist
of options. Operational change,
financial change and strategic
change ? or management change.?
Some high-profile departures followed investors? concerns about
a lack of returns and in some
cases outrage over fat cat pay.
BT?s Patterson said he would
quit after a dismal share price
performance and criticism he had
not spent enough cash on upgrading its broadband network.
And Polman ended his decadelong reign at Unilever after the
company?s plan to move its HQ
from London to Rotterdam was
scuppered by an investor revolt.
Persimmon boss Jeff Fairburn
was ousted from the housebuilder
not long after he flounced out of
a TV interview when asked about
his massive bonus.
Wilkie said the departures
would mark a good opportunity
to appoint more female bosses.
There are now just six women
running blue-chip firms. Wilkie
added: ?The rate of progress in
this area over the past 20 years
can, at best, be said to be glacial.?
BRITAIN is heading for the worst decade of housebuilding ever despite
frantic efforts to up construction.
With only a year left of the 2010s,
the average number of homes built
per year stands at just 130,000 ?
below every decade.
That is putting pressure on supply
and making it harder for millions of
people to buy a home, says the Centre for Policy Studies. The think tank
said construction has fallen every
decade since the Second World War,
with the current rate half of what
was achieved in the 1960s and 70s.
It is a fresh blow to Theresa May,
who vowed to make the issue her
?personal mission?.
MPs and campaigners have warned
a failure by the Tories to build
enough homes could stoke discontent among savers and usher in a
Labour government.
Robert Colvile, director of the think
tank, said: ?The analysis shows this is
not just a consequence of the financial crisis but is part of a pattern
stretching back half a century.
?Ministers need to take bold action
in 2019 to ensure the 2020s become
the decade in which we break this
hugely damaging cycle.?
The centre says the number of
homes expected to be built in this
decade will be about 1.3m, compared to 3m in the 1960s.
One-year wait
for new Glaxo
shingles drug
A NEW shingles vaccine from Glaxosmithkline is in such high demand
that some pharmacies have a oneyear waiting list.
Shingrix has been hugely popular
since its launch a year ago ? and the
British company is now scrambling
to keep up with orders.
It is seen as a major breakthrough
because of its effectiveness on older
people and has won glowing recommendations. That has fuelled
unprecedented demand in the three
countries ? the US, Canada and
Germany ? where it has launched.
In the US particularly, Glaxo has
ramped up deliveries amid reports
of one-year waiting lists.
And the shortages are likely to
slow the vaccine?s roll-out to other
countries such as the UK, where it
has regulatory approval but is not
yet available.
A spokesman for Glaxo said it was
now expanding its manufacturing
facilities to increase supply.
The two-dose shot is designed to
prevent shingles, which triggers
painful, blistery rashes on the skin
in adults aged 50 and over. With
half of people who reach 85 likely to
get shingles, the market is huge,
with Glaxo estimating it will reel in
as much as �0m in its first year.
There is currently no schedule for
when the drug could be introduced
in the UK.
�5bn Microsoft back HSBC banker probed for Netflix poaches video
as world?s biggest firm insult to Turkish leader game finance head
MICROSOFT has become
the world?s most valuable
company for the first time
in 16 years, after brutal
trading knocked billions of
pounds off its rivals.
The company founded by
Bill Gates was in the top
spot when markets closed
for 2018 with a value of
�5bn, after overtaking
Apple in November.
Microsoft?s market cap
had not exceeded Apple?s
since 2010. The two have
been in intense rivalry ever
since they were founded a
year apart in the 1970s. The
reshuffle came despite
Apple becoming the world?s
first trillion-dollar company
in August, followed by Amazon in September.
Both have plunged more
than 25pc since, in a brutal
sell-off dubbed the ?tech
wreck?. Apple is now worth
�2bn and Amazon �8bn.
Google owner Alphabet is
worth �7bn. Microsoft
was the most valuable firm
in the dotcom boom when
tech stocks surged, but it
crashed from 2000 to 2002.
THE boss of HSBC?s Turkish
business is being investigated by police over claims
he insulted President
Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Selim Kervanci reportedly posted a clip of the
German film Downfall, set
in the last days of Adolf Hitler?s tyranny, on Twitter.
In the video, subtitles of a
rant in German by Hitler
were altered to read as if
Erdogan was speaking.
Insulting Erdogan is a
crime in Turkey, with thousands of people prosecuted in 2017 according to
Human Rights Watch. The
post shared by Kervanci
was made by a journalist in
2013 and the banker was
quizzed in September.
Kervanci was made chief
executive of HSBC?s Turkish
arm in 2016. After a failed
coup in 2016, the country?s
rulers have cracked down
on dissent. HSBC Turkey
declined to comment.
NETFLIX has reportedly
poached the finance chief of
video game-maker Activision Blizzard ? after it was
announced that he would
be fired.
Online video firm Netflix
is expected to officially
reveal the appointment of
Spencer Neumann shortly.
Activision, which is behind
o n l i n e g a m e Wo r l d o f
Warcraft, said it had put
Neumann on paid leave and
intended to fire him but did
not give a reason.
Neumann had only been
there for 18 months. He is
an experienced executive in
the world of media finance
who has previously worked
for Disney.
At Netflix, the 48-year-old
will join former Disney colleagues such as Anne
Sweeney and Channing
Dungey. David Wells, Netflix?s current finance chief,
steps down in August.
The video streaming service was previously sued by
Rupert Murdoch?s 21st Century Fox for poaching two
of its executives.

OUR MAN SAM
DOES IT AGAIN
L
EADING owners
Clare and Paul
Rooney have
instructed their
trainers not to
enter
horses
at
Cheltenham.
The Rooneys have lost two
horses who ran at the Gloucestershire racecourse over the
last 13 months and their decision will ensure the welfare
debate at jump racing?s HQ
remains a hot topic before the
Festival in March.
After Starchitect sustained a
fatal injury when about to win
the 2017 Caspian Caviar Gold
Cup, Paul Rooney (below)
said their horses? welfare came above
winning races.
They suffered
further loss when
Melrose Boy
had to be put
down following
an operation to
treat injuries
sustained at
l a s t s e a s o n? s
Fe s t i v a l . T h e
BHA ordered a
review after six
deaths during the
four-day meeting.
The Rooneys have had just
two runners at the course this
season, but their best horses,
such as Christmas Hurdle third
If The Cap Fits, would have
been expected to run at the
Festival this year.
Former jockey Jason Maguire,
who is the Rooneys? racing
manager, declined to comment
when asked to explain the
move. Trainers confirmed they
had received letters but were
reluctant to comment further.
Simon Claisse, Cheltenham?s
clerk of the course and director
of racing, said: ?Until we have
communication with the
Rooneys, we are unable to
comment.?
Ten-time champion trainer
Paul
Nicholls
was
baffled by the Rooneys? decision and said: ?If they
want to run somewhere else, that?s
fine, they can go
somewhere else.
?However, in all
my years training
I?ve not had one
owner who said
they didn?t want
to have runners at
Cheltenham. It
would be like a Premier League footballer saying he
wasn?t going

FOR ONE, the start of 2019 came with a
certain level of confidence, bringing in
the new year with the big names at
Cheltenham and an established set-up.
For the other, it was time to make a
splash with a launch show that featured
big interviews to make up for a lack of
high-profile racing.
In the end, what became clear from the
first clash between ITV and Sky Sports
Racing yesterday was that they have
bold ambitions ? and divided loyalties.
Both featured pundits Luke Harvey and
Matt Chapman and that presentersharing produced some interesting
moments. Chapman told Sky viewers in
a pre-recorded segment: ?In 2019, Sky
Sports Racing will be the place for the
big names and the big news stories.?
He followed that by interviewing Nicky
Henderson and top jockey Nico de
Boinville. Yet, a few hours later on ITV,
following a comment that the Queen
might be watching to see her horse run
at Musselburgh, he won?t have pleased
his Sky bosses when saying: ?Hello Your
Majesty. We know you watch this show,
there?s nothing much else to watch on
New Year?s Day.?
ITV were in the paddock at Cheltenham,
and dipped in and out of coverage from
Musselburgh during a two-and-a-halfhour show. Presenter Ed Chamberlin
promised that ITV Racing would be
?bigger and better? and previewed
fixtures including the Cheltenham
Festival, the Grand National and Royal
Ascot. Over on Sky, Alex Hammond
anchored more than seven hours of
coverage from a new studio in Osterley,
west London. A morning preview show
featured interviews with Bryony Frost
and Frankie Dettori and a visit to Warren
Greatrex?s yard, and was immediately
followed by a live show with action from
Fakenham and Southwell.
Both channels made concerted efforts
to appeal to first-time racing viewers
with jargon-busting features.
That shared keenness to broaden the
audience of racing, and the fact that
two big-hitters are throwing the
kitchen sink at their racing coverage,
will be a good thing for the sport.
Whether the two come to blows in the
future over the big rights contract
remains to be seen.

an emotional return to the

Following a 6-3, 6-4 first-round win

was close to tears when asked to discuss the struggle he has had getting
back from a hip injury that sidelined
him for much of last year.

again. So, I?m happy I?m back out
here again. I want to try to enjoy it as
much as I can and just try to enjoy
playing tennis as long as I can.
?I don?t know how much longer it?s
going to last but we?ll see.?
The 31-year-old Scot moved well
overall against the australian
wildcard, although he looked a little
uncomfortable when running out wide
to the forehand side.
He did, however, pull off a very early
contender for the best shot of 2019
with a one-handed backhand pass on
the run, a flick of the wrist sending
the ball flying past duckworth.
Murray, who faces fourth seed and
world no 16 daniil Medvedev in

the comeback trail. However, he made
clear he has ambitions to climb the
rankings and compete against novak
djokovic, rafael nadal and roger

asked about the dominance of the
big three during his lay-off, Murray
said: ?It kills me that I have not been
able to be there competing. Obviously
the top three spots in the rankings
are still taken up by the same guys.
There is going to come a time when
the youngsters take over, but it?s
amazing what the three of those guys
are still doing.
?It?s not going to go on for ever, so I
as a tennis fan, and I?m sure everyone
else, just wants to enjoy these last few
years while they are still playing.
?There have been some incredible
matches, they are all great champions
and brilliant ambassadors for the
sport. So, I have been lucky to compete among them and hopefully I will
get a few chances in the coming
months to play against them again.?
In the women?s event in Brisbane,
British no 1 Jo Konta got her season
off to a superb start with a 6-4, 6-3 win
over world no 6 Sloane Stephens.

from the first minute
to the last and by
the end they had
good reason to. Whatever
opinion those behind the
scenes have of their manager,
the Nottingham Forest fans
want him to stay.
The pressure was on before this
gripping win over Leeds.
Karanka was said to have lost
the dressing room, but that seems
unlikely based on the performance
here, where his players battled
and fought to win a game that
turned, turned and turned again.
This was a first win in six and
there are caveats. Leeds showed
festive spirit and gifted Forest the
opener, and by half-time they
were down to 10 men after Kalvin
Phillips was dismissed.
Not only that, but the tale of
the game could have been very
different had Jack Robinson
been sent off after hauling
down Jack harrison in the
14th minute when he was
through on goal.
In the end, it was 10
minutes of utter madness
that defined the match,
with Forest repeatedly
counter-attacking. They
scored twice from set-pieces
through Jack Colback
and Daryl Murphy, and
finished with a

Still, Marcelo Bielsa?s Leeds are a
tough nut to crack, even if the
league leaders have faltered and
lost two in a row, and Karanka
deserves credit for the win.
The sell-out crowd made sure
Forest owner evangelos Marinakis
knew that.
Karanka said: ?Since I came here
one year ago, I?ve felt the support.
Last year was not easy but
they were supporting and they
understand there is a process
behind (everything).
?This year they feel that process
is going well. The comeback is
thanks to them, because they
supported after the second goal.?
If 2018 ended with a tough run
for Forest, 2019 got off to the
perfect start. Leeds? Adam
Forshaw found himself under
pressure from Colback in the
fourth minute, but that did

?We?re not in our best moment,
after a defeat last Saturday... our
comeback has been amazing.?
Just two points off the play-offs,
this year can still have a positive
outcome for Forest.
Karanka has earned his stay of
execution ? not that the Forest
fans wanted anything else.
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY are
poised to name Steve Bruce as
their boss in the next 24 hours.
Bruce has been Wednesday?s
target to succeed Jos Luhukay
after the Dutchman?s sacking
last month. Talks between Bruce
and Wednesday executives have
been ongoing and Bruce?s
coaching assistants, Steve
Agnew and Stephen Clemence,
watched Wednesday beat
Preston last week. A deal worth
�-a-year has now been
reached and Bruce will take
charge ahead of the weekend?s
FA Cup tie with Luton Town.
ROUND-UP
SHEFFIELD UNITED striker Billy
Sharp made history when he
became the leading goalscorer
in English league football this
century as the Blades cruised to
a 3-0 win at WIGAN ATHLETIC.
Sharp, 32, took his tally to 220
with a tap-in from David
McGoldrick?s cross to move one
goal clear of ex-Southampton,
Liverpool and England forward
Rickie Lambert. The Blades
moved within two points of
second-placed Norwich. Sharp
said: ?I just want to keep scoring
goals now and hopefully help
the club get promoted. I?ve
always wanted to be a Premier
League player.?
DERBY manager Frank Lampard
thought George Saville of
MIDDLESBROUGH was lucky to
escape a red card for a tackle
on Jack Marriott in the 1-1 draw
at Pride Park. Lampard said: ?It
felt like a red card to me... it was
a dangerous tackle, I think they
slightly got away with that one.?
Harry Wilson put Derby 1-0 after
just two minutes. Jordan Hugill
equalised after the break.

keep pushing. We?ve got good
players who are playing with
belief, but we?ve got to keep
taking things one game at a
time. It?s important we keep
developing.?
Man of the match Kamil Grosicki
offered a glimpse of what was to
come when he thumped Hull
into a 29th-minute lead from a
tight angle.
Bolton were competitive in the
first half but fell apart once
Evandro had made it 2-0 on 62
minutes. Grosicki?s curling shot
from distance a minute later
confirmed another Hull victory,
before Chris Martin, Jarrod
Bowen and substitute Nouha
Dicko completed the rout.
Crosby added: ?We were very
wary of the threat of Bolton. It
was important we got the first
goal and we took the game
away from them.
?In the last half-hour you saw a
team playing with confidence.
We probably could have scored
a couple more ? that?s belief
and confidence in each other.
?The club has perhaps been on a
downward spiral for a few years,
but hopefully we?ve turned a
corner and we can continue to
ride this wave.?

THE TRANSFER WINDOW
CLOSES ON JANUARY 31
By SIMON JONES
WOLVES lead the chase for
Tammy Abraham as he
prepares to cut short his loan
spell with Aston Villa.
The Molineux club are in talks
over a �illion deal to sell
defender Kortney Hause to
Villa, which will include a sellon clause, but want Abraham
amid competition from
Huddersfield and Burnley.
The Chelsea striker is eager to
play in the Premier League
and can trigger a clause in his
loan, as revealed by
Sportsmail yesterday.
INTER TEMPT YOUNG
WITH 2-YEAR DEAL
INTER MILAN are willing to
offer a two-year contract to
Manchester United?s Ashley
Young. The 33-year-old is free
to talk to foreign clubs
because he is out of contract
in the summer and is yet to
agree terms on a new deal at
United. The club have
discussed giving Young a
one-year extension.
CRYSTAL PALACE will
consider loan offers for
Nya Kirby this month amid
interest from Charlton and
Blackpool.
The 18-year-old midfielder
helped England win the
Under 17 World Cup in 2017 and
impressed Roy Hodgson
during pre-season.
He is yet to make his debut for
Palace but has spent time with
the first team and was an
unused substitute in the
Carabao Cup tie at
Middlesbrough in October.
HAMMERS WEIGH UP
McCARTHY SWOOP
WEST HAM are exploring the
possibility of signing Everton
midfielder James McCarthy
on loan. The 28-year-old is fit
after a double fracture of his
right leg but has not been
selected by Marco Silva.
Fulham and West Bromwich
Albion are also interested.
West Ham remain in talks with
Besiktas over a �5m deal for
Chile midfielder Gary Medel.

SARRI:
I WON?T
THROW
IN KIDS
Results come first
for Chelsea boss
M
aurizio Sarri
admits he must
prioritise winning
matches ahead of
developing young
talent as Chelsea face a
battle to keep hot prospect
Callum Hudson- odoi at
Stamford Bridge.
The winger, 18, continues to stall
over a five-year contract because
he wants more first-team opportunities. Bayern Munich have had
an opening offer rejected while
Barcelona and rB Leipzig are
monitoring the player.
The youngster?s future may be
further undermined as Chelsea are
in pole position to sign midfielder
Christian Pulisic from Borussia
Dortmund next summer.
Hudson- odoi, who won the
under 17 World Cup with England
in 2017, has been frustrated by a
lack of chances under manager
Sarri. He has played only 42
minutes in the Premier League
this season, but has featured in
the Europa League.
in the Boxing Day win at
Watford, Hudson-odoi replaced
Pedro after 43 minutes but was
substituted himself in the 85th
minute. The decision brought jeers
from Chelsea fans, but it later
emerged he was injured. He trained
yesterday but is doubtful for the
Southampton game tonight.
Sarri said: ?i can understand that
a fan loves young players from the
academy. i can understand very
well but in the long run i have to
win matches and the fans want me
to win matches and also the club.?
asked if Hudson-odoi is part of a
By ADAM CRAFTON
generation of young players who
are becoming impatient, Sarri
said: ?i don?t know. also the fans
sometimes, also the club sometimes and so i am in the middle.
i have to win.
?it?s not easy at this level to take
young players from the academy,
not only here, everywhere in
Europe. Sometimes there is one,
two young players in Barcelona,
from the academy, sometimes one,
two real Madrid, zero in Juventus, zero in Paris Saint-Germain.
We are lucky because we have
Ethan ampadu, we have andreas
Christensen, we have odoi.?
Sarri believes Hudson-odoi can
become one of the continent?s top
players. ?With the ball, he is a very
good player,? he said. ?He has to
improve in his movement without
the ball. as a winger, he has to
improve in the defensive phase
but he has the potential to become
a very important player, not only
for English football but for European football.?
Sarri ruled out recalling strikers
Michy Batshuayi or Tammy abraham from loan spells to bolster his
side?s attack. Batshuayi is enduring a miserable time at Valencia
but abraham has excelled by scoring 16 goals for aston Villa in the
Championship.
Meanwhile, Monaco are growing
hopeful of sealing a January transfer for Chelsea midfielder Cesc
Fabregas, whose current deal
expires in the summer. Fabregas,
31, has been frustrated by a lack of
opportunities under Sarri and has
started only one Premier League
game this season.

Clubs had previously
agreed no players

But because Nasri (above)

last week outside the transfer

O
LE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER
has
revealed how he
intends to restore
the ?X-factor? to
Marcus Rashford?s game.
The Manchester United manager, a famously clinical finisher as
a player, has seen glimpses from
Rashford of the sparkling form
that marked him out as a future
star when he emerged as a raw
teenager in 2015.
Two goals in the last three games
have prompted United team-mate
Juan Mata to christen him ?Wonder kid?, but it hasn?t always been
so easy for Rashford during a
season when he has often worked
hard for little reward.
Now Solskjaer plans to imbue his
own experience of the striker?s
role to improve the 21-year-old.
?I went to see the Young Boys
game around a month ago and I
met him and Jesse (Lingard) just

PRESSURE ON OLE TO MAKE
THE TOP FOUR, SAYS RAFA
RAFA BENITEZ believes caretaker
Manchester United manager Ole
Gunnar Solskjaer has to secure a
top-four finish this season.
?It is a team that has to be in the
top four, that is very clear,? said
the Newcastle boss ahead of
their meeting at St James? Park
tonight. ?We are talking about
one of the biggest clubs in the
world. To get points against
them, you have to perform well.?
United lie sixth, eight points
behind Chelsea in fourth.
Newcastle sit three points above
the drop zone and Benitez
added: ?If we want to stay up, we
need to work hard.?

in the corridor as I was leaving the
game. And he was all sighs,? said
Solskjaer. ?He had a few chances in
that game and I said, ?Don?t worry
son, just relax a little bit?.
?When you?re young you want to
rush finishes off and it will be great
to work with a potential top striker
on his calmness in front of goal.
?You are excited to be able to
work with all of this talent but
then going into detail with what I
can do best. That was my X-factor,
scoring goals. So, if I can help and
guide him a little bit, great.?
Solskjaer, who admits to falling
back on methods used by mentor
Sir Alex Ferguson, will welcome
back Alexis Sanchez into his squad
to face Newcastle today, a player
who has struggled with the weight
of expectation at United.
?It?s all in the head. Know what
you have to do and that is the key
to everything. Of course it?s videos

and practise and be as good as you
can possibly get. There is always
time for another practice session.?
Discussing his outlook during an
interview with Stadium Astro, the
45-year-old underlined the importance of psychology.
?Football is played between the
ears,? he said. ?You can say 90 per
cent is what is up here (in the
mind). Talent, attributes, skills,
there are so many players around
the world who you can pick. But
why do you choose him in front of
him? It?s personality, that?s one
tick. But at a club like this, when
you are feeling down, then it is
about confidence.
?We know they have the personality, we know they have the skills,
then it is about communication
and getting to know each other.
Confidence is important.?
far, yet the one-time ?baby-faced
assassin? has not been afraid to
show his sterner side.
He reprimanded striker Anthony
Martial when the Frenchman
missed training on Christmas Day
after arriving late from Paris, and
will stress the importance of
discipline while in Dubai.
Jose Mourinho was often left
exasperated at how some of the
United squad responded when
afforded responsibility before
games and Solskjaer has
underlined how he won?t allow
that to seep back in.
?You speak to the players with
what we, as a staff, expect from
the group,? he said. ?Never ever,
ever, ever forget where you are
and what badge you are wearing
when you are playing because we
do have a different history to
other clubs,? he added in an
interview with Stadium Astro. ?We
do have a different tradition. We
have had the best boss in the
world. We?ve had Sir Matt before
then. We have a way of behaving
and a way of playing.
?It is so lovely to walk in here and
Kath, the receptionist, still wants
to be here. There is a reason
players come here but there is
also a reason the staff are
employed.
?The staff are here because they
are the best at what they are
doing. If we can have that
continuity, with Kath or the
kitchen staff, that?s so
important. They know what?s
expected and they know the
culture of the club.?

MAN CITY v LIVERPOOL 1 DAY TO GO
Daily Mail, Wednesday, January 2, 2019

THERE?S METHOD IN
KLOPP?S MADNESS
Volcanic on touchline but boss insists his ?calm? has Liverpool sitting pretty
I
T can get lonely out
in front, so Jurgen
Klopp keeps being
told. Leading the pack,
rather than chasing it,
comes with a different
burden and many wonder
how Liverpool will cope.
Pep Guardiola, for one, has
wasted no time in publicly pointing out how the atmosphere
changed for Manchester city
last February when it became
apparent his team were going
to win the title. It is, of course, a
tactic to turn up the heat on
Klopp and his players.
History is laced with episodes of
leaders faltering in the Premier
League. no footballing story is
more famous than the one of
newcastle in 1996, when Manchester United overhauled a
12-point deficit.
But what about arsenal?s implosion in 2003? They had led United
by eight points before a 2-2 draw
with Bolton led the usually
urbane arsene Wenger to take his
tie off on the touchline, so great
was the pressure.
as Liverpool head to the Etihad
tomorrow ? for the campaign?s
biggest game to date ? many can
see a similar tale unfolding.
Why wouldn?t they? city are a
magnificent side and a sevenpoint gap with 17 matches to go
is not beyond them. They would
not be out of the reckoning,
either, if they were to lose to
Liverpool. When your rivals have
class ? as city do ? it is dangerous to assume anything.
The narrative that is starting to
build around Liverpool, though,
is something Klopp has found
intriguing. People may feel he is
reading from a script in press
conferences when he says
nobody is looking further
than the next game but that
is the message he gives to
his squad, too.
?People don?t see it but
I?m a pretty calm person,?
Klopp (right) said before
arsenal?s visit on
Saturday. ?not during
the 90 minutes,
obviously, but in
general. I don?t
get that easily
by
DOMINIC
KING
excited about different things.
When we are here, it?s only
about us.?
That point needs emphasising.
On matchday, Klopp can be like a
volcano waiting to erupt. He
stands outside Liverpool?s dressing room sizing up the opposition
and letting them know he is ready
for battle. To see him on the
touchline, all waving arms and
shouting, calm is the last word
you would pick for him.
Back at Melwood, however, he is
methodical and has a way of
getting his point across that
doesn?t require bellowing or bawling. If he wants to make a point,
it is done without emotion.
?If we lose a game, people will
see it as slipping through our
fingers again or whatever,? Klopp
said. ?That?s just not our situation. We have to train, we have to
work, we have to play, we have to
fight, all these things and try to
make the best of this season. all
of the rest are stories.
?It?s interesting because people
read it, they like it. But for us,
nothing changes. We were not the
hunters and now we are not the
hunted. We are just a team who
want to play the best season of
our lives.?
It is that simple. Whether it is
good enough to end Liverpool?s
quest to become champions can
only be guessed at this point ?
the omens, it should be noted, are
promising as no team with a sixpoint lead on new Year?s
Day has failed ? but
Klopp has been
here before.
He led Borussia Dortmund
to two Bundesliga triumphs. The
first in 2011 came
with anxieties. a 15point lead in March
was whittled down
to seven by eventual
runners -up Bayer
Leverkusen, as
Dortmund lost
Enjoying life at the top: Mo Salah has a laugh with James Milner in training yesterday
three of their final nine games.
The following season, however,
was imperious. They had lost
three of their opening six matches
but a 28-game unbeaten run from
September saw them retain their
title by eight points from Bayern
Munich. With that in mind, what
follows now will not take Klopp
by surprise.
If anything, Liverpool have
shown they are well equipped to
deal with the frenzy. They took
over in first place on December 8,
when beating Bournemouth 4-0,
and have won each of the six
matches that have followed.
Should that record be extended
to seven in Manchester, their
position as favourites will
strengthen ? and show they are
ready for the long run for home.

AMIE VARDY was in
no hurry to leave the
pitch. He shuffled
slowly to the touchline
after being substituted, shaking hands with
team-mates before turning
to applaud Leicester?s
exultant fans.
The new year had started
in the best possible manner for Vardy, with a goal
and a somersault for good
measure, so who could
blame him for wanting to
savour the moment? But all
around Goodison Park,
Evertonians were in a hurry,
darting for the exits after
another wretched day.
Vardy?s seventh goal of the
season had proved decisive
and completed a hugely
successful Christmas period
for Claude Puel, who has
masterminded wins over
Chelsea and Manchester
City to go with this flattening of Everton.
For Marco Silva, though, the
picture could not have been more
miserable. Everton were abject,
lifeless and toothless, and they
look a far cry from the team who
were threatening the top six at the
end of November.
?I?ve had that in the locker for a
while and saved it for a special
occasion,? said Vardy, referring to
the gymnastics he displayed after
scoring. ?What better occasion ?
a new year, a new me! It?s been a
great Christmas, now we need to
push on and get the points to keep
us where we are in the table.?
Leicester were everything that
Everton were not ? determined,
resolute, organised, but most of all
confident. If they can find consistency in the less high-profile fixtures, they can qualify for Europe.
Puel may get derided but he is a
competent manager. He arrived

with a game plan and lured Everton into his trap by frustrating the
life out of the home side.
It made for a woeful game in the
opening 45 minutes, but the onus
was on Silva and his players to
make something happen.
There were only two notable
moments before referee Martin
Atkinson mercifully called time,
both of which were provided by
Jonjoe Kenny, the young right
back who had been recalled at the
expense of Seamus Coleman.
He did his best to make an
impression. First he cracked a
drive from the edge of the area
against the bar in the 18th minute,
after a cutback from Lucas Digne
had evaded everyone, then followed up by whipping a cross into
... BUT HE DIDN?T
GET OFF TO A FLIER
VARDY had just 10 touches of
the ball in the first half ?
leading to a heated discussion
with manager Claude Puel.
After the break, the striker
saw more of the ball and
netted the winner.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but the
England Under 21 striker headed
wide. That was as good as it got.
Leicester had shown little attacking ambition, but the situation
was about to change and there
was a noticeable improvement in
their urgency in the second period,
characterised by Puel literally
bouncing with impatience on the
touchline.
?We cannot play fantastic football
in this busy period and I am happy
to come here with this squad and
this fantastic mentality,? said Puel.
?If we look at the season, the first
half, we finished seventh in the
table. It is not bad with all the
problems we have had. It is important to find a good consistency.?
Puel remains a manager under
pressure, but he could not have
done more to galvanise Leicester
here and in the 58th minute he got
his reward.
A long clearance by goalkeeper
Kasper Schmeichel was miscontrolled by Theo Walcott and
Michael Keane, allowing the ball
to bounce to Ricardo Pereira.
Suddenly danger loomed and
Pereira?s quick pass invited Vardy
to take on the labouring Kurt
Zouma. The former England
striker zipped past Zouma before
drilling a left-footed shot beyond
Jordan Pickford.
?Ricky?s seen me straight away
and his one touch slid me through,?
said Vardy. ?I?d tried that a few
times in the game, but Ricky has
been excellent all season and it
was a great assist. You can?t have
any doubts as a striker. You want
to score all the time, but I am
making the right runs.?
You suspected there and then
that the game had been decided.
The Goodison crowd was in one of
those irascible, tetchy moods that
are not conducive to comebacks
and the onus was on Silva and his
players to come up with the right
answer. Not once did they threaten
to find it.
?A poor performance,? said Silva.
?We have to play better than this.
We were anxious and nervous. To
be here, you have to show the
capacity to deal with this normal
pressure. We are playing a lot of
games in a row with no time to
rest, but that is not an excuse
when you miss simple things.?
Other than a couple of crosses
drilled into Leicester?s penalty
area and a hopeful shout for a
penalty, Everton puffed and spluttered like a broken-down steam
train. Leicester, by contrast, grew
in confidence and played with
intelligence.
At the end, those Evertonians
who had bothered to stay booed in
frustration. It must have been
music to Puel and Vardy?s ears.

N THE immediate
aftermath of Arsenal?s
opening goal, the television cameras did not
pan to the dugout,
where Unai Emery appeared
relieved, or to the terraces,
where fans embraced.
I
Instead, they cut to Fulham?s
young winger, Ryan Sessegnon,
who trudged upfield, with his
head bowed and a forlorn look to
the ground. Granit Xhaka had
provided the breakthrough but
Sessegnon had previously held this
game in his grip and deep down,
the teenager will know this.
Twice in the first half, Fulham
cut through a dreadful and
anxious Arsenal defence and twice
the 18-year-old spurned opportunities that he surely gobbles up
every day at the training ground.
The first came in the 18th minute
and it was the kind of chance we
have seen Arsenal concede on so
many occasions over the years.
With the Gunners overcommitted
to attack both in numbers and in
mind, Fulham raced upfield on the
counter and after Aleksandar
Mitrovic cushioned the ball back to
Tom Cairney on the halfway line, the
Fulham captain instantly weighted
a low pass to the run of Sessegnon
on the inside right channel.
He sped the distance of the
Arsenal half, beyond his cast
of heavy-legged pursuers, but
confronted by the whites of the
goalkeeper?s eyes he opened up
his body and curled wide.
More woe was to follow. As Cairney spread the play for Andre
Schurrle, the German crossed
delightfully for the unmarked
Sessegnon, who, with the goal
gaping, missed his kick entirely.
Within two minutes, the ball was
in the Fulham net and with it their
hopes of an unlikely victory greatly
diminished.
The Arsenal goal was wellworked, as Alex Iwobi cut in from
the left and picked out the run of
Xhaka. The Swiss midfielder had
ambled in on Cairney?s blind side
and slotted the ball past Sergio
Rico easily.
Arsenal had taken only four
points from the previous four
games, including Saturday?s 5-1
defeat at Anfield. Their defence,
despite featuring the experience
of Laurent Koscielny, Sokratis
and Shkodran Mustafi, appeared
rattled.
This was a fraught opening
period in which the home side
were fortunate to be level, never
mind leading. ?The Arsenal fans
did not look very happy with their
team,? Fulham manager Claudio
Ranieri observed.
So do not be fooled by the handsome scoreline. In truth, portions
of this game resembled the more
angst-ridden moments of the late
Arsene Wenger period.
Supporters groaned when
Arsenal mislaid passes and roundly
booed the manager?s decision to
substitute Alexandre Lacazette
with Aaron Ramsey in the second
half as Arsenal sought to protect
a 2-1 lead.
Emery?s decision was vindicated
within four minutes when Ramsey
Arsenal go from very
ordinary to sublime
Don?t be fooled by
scoreline...Emery?s
boys were rattled
scored the third goal to take the
match away from Fulham.
Emery said: ?I understand the
supporters but I need to do my
work. Maybe every supporter can
think different things. We need
to have our mind very cold for
making decisions.?
Arsenal are now within two
points of Chelsea and the Champions League places but Emery will
be concerned by the manner his
side seem to veer so swiftly from
the ordinary to the sublime and
back again.
The opening goal settled
Arsenal?s nerves and they started
to produce slick attacking football. Matteo Guendouzi sold his
marker a dummy and forced a low
save from Rico. Iwobi, excellent in
the floating role, then deceived
Fulham with a backheel and Xhaka
was denied at point-blank range
by a Tim Ream block.
Arsenal?s forward play was
inventive, summed up when
Sokratis nutmegged Denis Odoi
and let fly from distance. Pierre-
Emerick Aubameyang then cut
across the front post but headed
wide from another Iwobi cross.
Yet Fuham?s menace remained.
Mitrovic beat three defenders in
the air but headed straight at
goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
At half-time, Emery replaced the
injured Mustafi with midfielder
Lucas Torreira and changed to a
four-man defence.
Lacazette soon scored the
second when Iwobi and Aubameyang unlocked Fulham with two
reverse passes in tight areas to
release Sead Kolasinac. The
Bosnian wing-back pulled the ball
back and Lacazette thumped in.
Arsenal briefly threatened to cut
loose. Aubameyang sprinted in
behind and Rico saved.
Yet their frailties remained.
Mitrovic headed straight at Leno
again and then Fulham finally
did score when Sessegnon?s low
cross was tapped in by substitute
Aboubakar Kamara.
The Frenchman had angered
Ranieri when he took a penalty

That is one interpretation of this
walloping, anyway.
A more sensible theory would
focus on the disparities between
the Wolves side who knocked
Spurs on to their backsides on
Saturday and the Cardiff team
who helped them up to their feet
here yesterday.
Indeed, Neil Warnock?s side really
were complicit in their own demise
in so much as they only pushed
back once they were 3-0 down and
the credit, if any is due, is that
they at least battled from the 26th
minute onwards to keep that gap
to three.
Chance after chance still came,
around nine more in all, but what
might have become an all-out
mauling was instead limited to a
solid kicking.
Yet that will do for Tottenham,

talk. For now, anyway. They
have to live with that slur by
virtue of what happened against
Wolves, but just as one defeat in
December is unlikely to determine
their title challenge, this New
Year?s Day win will only count for
so much.
It doesn?t prove their resilience,
it just gets them back on the horse
and that was just about as much
as they could hope for.
But they did it well. Very well,
actually, especially that frontline
of such delicious talents, each of
which had his moment in this
game. For his part, Harry Kane
scored on three minutes with the
ugliest finish of his career, taking
his haul to 18 in all competitions
and completing his set of scoring
against all 28 Premier League sides
he has faced.
Thereafter, he showed once more
the string he has added to his bow
this season, which is creation ? he
played a role in Christian Eriksen
getting the second and then
directly assisted as Son Heungmin got the third.
Kane now has six assists for the
campaign in all competitions,
which is just one shy of his record
for an entire campaign ? proof,
if any were needed, that aside from
being lethal, he is still developing
as an all-round attacking entity.
A special player indeed.
Pochettino, whose side went
back up to second in the Premier
League table, above Manchester
City, was more effusive about the
collective rather than the parts in
his analysis.
?It was so important to start to
build another positive run after
Wolves and of course in football it
is impossible to win every single
game,? said the manager.
?But for sure we are going to try
to win every single game until the
end, so it was so important for

everyone, for confidence. It was so
important to start the new year
with a victory away from home, at
a very difficult place.
?It was a massive victory for us to
make us believe that little more, in
a possibility to be in a very good
position in the table.?
Cardiff have been troublesome
opposition in recent weeks, with
six wins in their 12 games before
this one.
But it is equally true that they
have been pushed to pillar and
post in challenges to the big six,
with six defeats in six attempts
this season and 22 conceded.
For a team like Tottenham,
undertaking their fourth game in
10 games, they were still expected
to be a difficult assignment in light
of injury problems that meant
Pochettino could rotate only one
player for this fixture ? Danny
Rose in for Ben Davies.
As it happened, the game was
over almost as soon as it started.
Kane was at the origin of the move
with a break through the middle
before he rolled possession out
right, from where Kieran Trippier
whipped in a low cross.
Sean Morrison went to clear but
clattered the ball off Kane?s knee
and the rebound trickled past Neil
Etheridge. When your luck is in,
it?s in, as they say.
Cardiff had their best period of
the match in response, all nine
minutes of it, before Spurs got
their second. Moussa Sissoko,
having another fine game, was
involved, as was Kane, before the
ball worked its way to Son, who
squared inside to Eriksen.
Bruno Ecuele Mangala was left
as Etheridge?s last line of defence,
but two shimmies by Eriksen
bought some space and the Dane?s

Son wrapped it up after a Kane

Warnock: Block their ground move
NEIL WARNOCK has called for
the Premier League to force
Tottenham to play the rest of
their home games this season at
Wembley for the sake of the
competition?s integrity.
Tottenham want to move into
their new ground before the
end of the season and an update
is due next week on the
beleaguered �0million
project, which was meant to
be completed last summer.
However, Cardiff manager
Warnock, whose side have now
been beaten by Spurs home and
away, believes it could hand
relegation rivals an advantage
if they play Tottenham at their
new stadium because it could
take the north London club time
to adapt to their new
surroundings.
Warnock said: ?They have made
so many problems with the
timing that the Premier League
should enforce it that they play
at Wembley for the rest of the
season. There should not be any
chance of an advantage for our
opponents.
?We should have played them at
their new stadium. The Premier
League should step in and make
them stay at Wembley. They
shouldn?t be able to play at their
new stadium for six weeks or
whatever. It undermines the
integrity of the competition.?

following their FA Cup
third-round tie with Reading
this weekend.
United?s manager and his
squad are due to fly out
on Saturday evening for a
four-day stay at the five-star

Solskjaer has made a big

Despite the luxury destination, Solskjaer does not
intend the trip to be a

AMIE VARDY was in
no hurry to leave the
pitch. He shuffled
slowly to the touchline
after being substituted, shaking hands with
team-mates before turning
to applaud Leicester?s
exultant fans.
The new year had started
in the best possible manner for Vardy, with a goal
and a somersault for good
measure, so who could
blame him for wanting to
savour the moment? But all
around Goodison Park,
Evertonians were in a hurry,
darting for the exits after
another wretched day.
Vardy?s seventh goal of the
season had proved decisive
and completed a hugely
successful Christmas period
for Claude Puel, who has
masterminded wins over
Chelsea and Manchester
City to go with this flattening of Everton.
For Marco Silva, though, the
picture could not have been more
miserable. Everton were abject,
lifeless and toothless, and they
look a far cry from the team who
were threatening the top six at the
end of November.
?I?ve had that in the locker for a
while and saved it for a special
occasion,? said Vardy, referring to
the gymnastics he displayed after
scoring. ?What better occasion ?
a new year, a new me! It?s been a
great Christmas, now we need to
push on and get the points to keep
us where we are in the table.?
Leicester were everything that
Everton were not ? determined,
resolute, organised, but most of all
confident. If they can find consistency in the less high-profile fixtures, they can qualify for Europe.
Puel may get derided but he is a
competent manager. He arrived

with a game plan and lured Everton into his trap by frustrating the
life out of the home side.
It made for a woeful game in the
opening 45 minutes, but the onus
was on Silva and his players to
make something happen.
There were only two notable
moments before referee Martin
Atkinson mercifully called time,
both of which were provided by
Jonjoe Kenny, the young right
back who had been recalled at the
expense of Seamus Coleman.
He did his best to make an
impression. First he cracked a
drive from the edge of the area
against the bar in the 18th minute,
after a cutback from Lucas Digne
had evaded everyone, then followed up by whipping a cross into
... BUT HE DIDN?T
GET OFF TO A FLIER
VARDY had just 10 touches of
the ball in the first half ?
leading to a heated discussion
with manager Claude Puel.
After the break, the striker
saw more of the ball and
netted the winner.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but the
England Under 21 striker headed
wide. That was as good as it got.
Leicester had shown little attacking ambition, but the situation
was about to change and there
was a noticeable improvement in
their urgency in the second period,
characterised by Puel literally
bouncing with impatience on the
touchline.
?We cannot play fantastic football
in this busy period and I am happy
to come here with this squad and
this fantastic mentality,? said Puel.
?If we look at the season, the first
half, we finished seventh in the
table. It is not bad with all the
problems we have had. It is important to find a good consistency.?
Puel remains a manager under
pressure, but he could not have
done more to galvanise Leicester
here and in the 58th minute he got
his reward.
A long clearance by goalkeeper
Kasper Schmeichel was miscontrolled by Theo Walcott and
Michael Keane, allowing the ball
to bounce to Ricardo Pereira.
Suddenly danger loomed and
Pereira?s quick pass invited Vardy
to take on the labouring Kurt
Zouma. The former England
striker zipped past Zouma before
drilling a left-footed shot beyond
Jordan Pickford.
?Ricky?s seen me straight away
and his one touch slid me through,?
said Vardy. ?I?d tried that a few
times in the game, but Ricky has
been excellent all season and it
was a great assist. You can?t have
any doubts as a striker. You want
to score all the time, but I am
making the right runs.?
You suspected there and then
that the game had been decided.
The Goodison crowd was in one of
those irascible, tetchy moods that
are not conducive to comebacks
and the onus was on Silva and his
players to come up with the right
answer. Not once did they threaten
to find it.
?A poor performance,? said Silva.
?We have to play better than this.
We were anxious and nervous. To
be here, you have to show the
capacity to deal with this normal
pressure. We are playing a lot of
games in a row with no time to
rest, but that is not an excuse
when you miss simple things.?
Other than a couple of crosses
drilled into Leicester?s penalty
area and a hopeful shout for a
penalty, Everton puffed and spluttered like a broken-down steam
train. Leicester, by contrast, grew
in confidence and played with
intelligence.
At the end, those Evertonians
who had bothered to stay booed in
frustration. It must have been
music to Puel and Vardy?s ears.

N THE immediate
aftermath of Arsenal?s
opening goal, the television cameras did not
pan to the dugout,
where Unai Emery appeared
relieved, or to the terraces,
where fans embraced.
I
Instead, they cut to Fulham?s
young winger, Ryan Sessegnon,
who trudged upfield, with his
head bowed and a forlorn look to
the ground. Granit Xhaka had
provided the breakthrough but
Sessegnon had previously held this
game in his grip and deep down,
the teenager will know this.
Twice in the first half, Fulham
cut through a dreadful and
anxious Arsenal defence and twice
the 18-year-old spurned opportunities that he surely gobbles up
every day at the training ground.
The first came in the 18th minute
and it was the kind of chance we
have seen Arsenal concede on so
many occasions over the years.
With the Gunners overcommitted
to attack both in numbers and in
mind, Fulham raced upfield on the
counter and after Aleksandar
Mitrovic cushioned the ball back to
Tom Cairney on the halfway line, the
Fulham captain instantly weighted
a low pass to the run of Sessegnon
on the inside right channel.
He sped the distance of the
Arsenal half, beyond his cast
of heavy-legged pursuers, but
confronted by the whites of the
goalkeeper?s eyes he opened up
his body and curled wide.
More woe was to follow. As Cairney spread the play for Andre
Schurrle, the German crossed
delightfully for the unmarked
Sessegnon, who, with the goal
gaping, missed his kick entirely.
Within two minutes, the ball was
in the Fulham net and with it their
hopes of an unlikely victory greatly
diminished.
The Arsenal goal was wellworked, as Alex Iwobi cut in from
the left and picked out the run of
Xhaka. The Swiss midfielder had
ambled in on Cairney?s blind side
and slotted the ball past Sergio
Rico easily.
Arsenal had taken only four
points from the previous four
games, including Saturday?s 5-1
defeat at Anfield. Their defence,
despite featuring the experience
of Laurent Koscielny, Sokratis
and Shkodran Mustafi, appeared
rattled.
This was a fraught opening
period in which the home side
were fortunate to be level, never
mind leading. ?The Arsenal fans
did not look very happy with their
team,? Fulham manager Claudio
Ranieri observed.
So do not be fooled by the handsome scoreline. In truth, portions
of this game resembled the more
angst-ridden moments of the late
Arsene Wenger period.
Supporters groaned when
Arsenal mislaid passes and roundly
booed the manager?s decision to
substitute Alexandre Lacazette
with Aaron Ramsey in the second
half as Arsenal sought to protect
a 2-1 lead.
Emery?s decision was vindicated
within four minutes when Ramsey
Arsenal go from very
ordinary to sublime
Don?t be fooled by
scoreline...Emery?s
boys were rattled
scored the third goal to take the
match away from Fulham.
Emery said: ?I understand the
supporters but I need to do my
work. Maybe every supporter can
think different things. We need
to have our mind very cold for
making decisions.?
Arsenal are now within two
points of Chelsea and the Champions League places but Emery will
be concerned by the manner his
side seem to veer so swiftly from
the ordinary to the sublime and
back again.
The opening goal settled
Arsenal?s nerves and they started
to produce slick attacking football. Matteo Guendouzi sold his
marker a dummy and forced a low
save from Rico. Iwobi, excellent in
the floating role, then deceived
Fulham with a backheel and Xhaka
was denied at point-blank range
by a Tim Ream block.
Arsenal?s forward play was
inventive, summed up when
Sokratis nutmegged Denis Odoi
and let fly from distance. Pierre-
Emerick Aubameyang then cut
across the front post but headed
wide from another Iwobi cross.
Yet Fuham?s menace remained.
Mitrovic beat three defenders in
the air but headed straight at
goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
At half-time, Emery replaced the
injured Mustafi with midfielder
Lucas Torreira and changed to a
four-man defence.
Lacazette soon scored the
second when Iwobi and Aubameyang unlocked Fulham with two
reverse passes in tight areas to
release Sead Kolasinac. The
Bosnian wing-back pulled the ball
back and Lacazette thumped in.
Arsenal briefly threatened to cut
loose. Aubameyang sprinted in
behind and Rico saved.
Yet their frailties remained.
Mitrovic headed straight at Leno
again and then Fulham finally
did score when Sessegnon?s low
cross was tapped in by substitute
Aboubakar Kamara.
The Frenchman had angered
Ranieri when he took a penalty

That is one interpretation of this
walloping, anyway.
A more sensible theory would
focus on the disparities between
the Wolves side who knocked
Spurs on to their backsides on
Saturday and the Cardiff team
who helped them up to their feet
here yesterday.
Indeed, Neil Warnock?s side really
were complicit in their own demise
in so much as they only pushed
back once they were 3-0 down and
the credit, if any is due, is that
they at least battled from the 26th
minute onwards to keep that gap
to three.
Chance after chance still came,
around nine more in all, but what
might have become an all-out
mauling was instead limited to a
solid kicking.
Yet that will do for Tottenham,

talk. For now, anyway. They
have to live with that slur by
virtue of what happened against
Wolves, but just as one defeat in
December is unlikely to determine
their title challenge, this New
Year?s Day win will only count for
so much.
It doesn?t prove their resilience,
it just gets them back on the horse
and that was just about as much
as they could hope for.
But they did it well. Very well,
actually, especially that frontline
of such delicious talents, each of
which had his moment in this
game. For his part, Harry Kane
scored on three minutes with the
ugliest finish of his career, taking
his haul to 18 in all competitions
and completing his set of scoring
against all 28 Premier League sides
he has faced.
Thereafter, he showed once more
the string he has added to his bow
this season, which is creation ? he
played a role in Christian Eriksen
getting the second and then
directly assisted as Son Heungmin got the third.
Kane now has six assists for the
campaign in all competitions,
which is just one shy of his record
for an entire campaign ? proof,
if any were needed, that aside from
being lethal, he is still developing
as an all-round attacking entity.
A special player indeed.
Pochettino, whose side went
back up to second in the Premier
League table, above Manchester
City, was more effusive about the
collective rather than the parts in
his analysis.
?It was so important to start to
build another positive run after
Wolves and of course in football it
is impossible to win every single
game,? said the manager.
?But for sure we are going to try
to win every single game until the
end, so it was so important for

everyone, for confidence. It was so
important to start the new year
with a victory away from home, at
a very difficult place.
?It was a massive victory for us to
make us believe that little more, in
a possibility to be in a very good
position in the table.?
Cardiff have been troublesome
opposition in recent weeks, with
six wins in their 12 games before
this one.
But it is equally true that they
have been pushed to pillar and
post in challenges to the big six,
with six defeats in six attempts
this season and 22 conceded.
For a team like Tottenham,
undertaking their fourth game in
10 games, they were still expected
to be a difficult assignment in light
of injury problems that meant
Pochettino could rotate only one
player for this fixture ? Danny
Rose in for Ben Davies.
As it happened, the game was
over almost as soon as it started.
Kane was at the origin of the move
with a break through the middle
before he rolled possession out
right, from where Kieran Trippier
whipped in a low cross.
Sean Morrison went to clear but
clattered the ball off Kane?s knee
and the rebound trickled past Neil
Etheridge. When your luck is in,
it?s in, as they say.
Cardiff had their best period of
the match in response, all nine
minutes of it, before Spurs got
their second. Moussa Sissoko,
having another fine game, was
involved, as was Kane, before the
ball worked its way to Son, who
squared inside to Eriksen.
Bruno Ecuele Mangala was left
as Etheridge?s last line of defence,
but two shimmies by Eriksen
bought some space and the Dane?s

Game over: Cardiff defender Morrison can?t stop Son making it 3-0 inside half an hour
finish from the edge of the area
was lovely. Is he Tottenham?s best
player? It?s a good argument.
Son wrapped it up after a Kane
assist. The South Korean has eight
goals in his last 11 starts, so he?s
none too shabby, either.
Maybe the outlook at the club
isn?t so bleak as one defeat made
it seem.
