The test is designed to pick up

The technique relies on a pioneering
device that can detect chemicals
given off by cancerous tumours. A
major trial of the technology – involv-
ing 1,500 patients over two years – is
now being launched. The test could
replace current screening programmes
within a decade.
Dr David Crosby, from Cancer
Research UK, said: ‘It sounds futuristic
but it’s very much a real thing and the
potential is enormous. If you find cancer early, the potential for treatment is
much higher. In a lot of cases, we simply
don’t have good tests for finding
very early cancers because they don’t
have symptoms.
‘So having a test which is relatively
cheap – and non-invasive so you don’t
have to take a biopsy – would be a huge
advantage. Essentially it’s a breathalyser for cancer.’ The UK lags behind

the rest of Europe when it
comes to cancer survival rates,
which experts blame on a failure to diagnose it earlier. More
than 17,000 Britons die each
year because the disease is
not spotted quickly enough.
While biopsies or other invasive tests take time to organise, the breathalyser could be
operated in a GP’s surgery.
The technology is the brainchild of Cambridge scientist
Billy Boyle, who developed it
after his wife died from colon
cancer at the age of 36. Kate
Gross – who had been an
adviser to Tony Blair and Gordon Brown – died in 2014.
Mr Boyle said the loss of his
‘inspirational’ wife – with
whom he had twin boys –
spurred him to co -found
development firm Owlstone
Medical in the hope of helping
others get early treatment.
The test works by spotting
waste products given off by
cancer cells, which are known
‘Urgently need
new tools’
as volatile organic compounds
(VOCs). These find their way
into a patient’s breath through
the bloodstream, in a similar
way to alcohol.
In the trial being carried out
at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in
Cambridge, patients will be
asked to breathe into the
device for ten minutes. It will
collect the airborne molecules
before they are sent to a laboratory for analysis.
Patients can expect to have
their results within a few days,
rather than the two weeks it
typically takes for a biopsy.
Scientists also believe that
different cancers will cause
recognisable alterations in the
VOCs, allowing them to determine the chemical signatures

every year. Of these, half are
detected at a late stage.
However, rapid advances in
technology mean scientists
can now detect early signs of
cancer that are equivalent to
a fraction of a grain of sand. A
greater understanding of the
biology of cancer also means
researchers are now confident
they know what to look for.
Lead researcher Professor
Rebecca Fitzgerald, from the
Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, said the best
way to improve survival rates
was through early detection.
She said: ‘We urgently need
to develop new tools – like this

the UK, there are 360,000 new
cancer earlier, giving patients
the best chance of surviving.
‘Through this trial we hope
to find signatures needed to
detect cancers earlier. It’s the
crucial next step in developing this technology.’
Mr Boyle said that the breath
test could work alongside
other methods of diagnosis.
He added: ‘There is increasing
potential for breath-based
tests to aid diagnosis, sitting
alongside blood and urine
tests in an effort to help doctors detect and treat disease.
‘The concept of providing a
whole-body snapshot in a
completely non-invasive way
is very powerful and could
reduce harm by sparing
patients from more invasive
tests that they don’t need.
‘Our technology has proven
to be extremely effective, and
we are proud to be working
with Cancer Research UK as
we look to apply it towards
the incredibly important area
of detecting early-stage disease in a range of cancers.’

Lest we forget: The Remembrance Day creation … and a horse with a very starry rump
Talent: Melody Hames works on a stag feature
She’s the horse barber who clips amazing
works of art on to equine clients’ coats
By Eleanor Hayward
WHAT with shoeing and grooming, it can cost a pretty penny to
keep a pony looking good.
But if you really want to knock the
hooves off the opposition at the
local gymkhana, these crazy haircuts are surely the way to go.
The designs here are all down to Melody Hames, who discovered her talent
by chance when as a nine-year-old she
had to cut her pony Misty’s woolly coat.
Now aged 32, she travels around the
world creating incredible artwork in
horses’ coats with a pair of trusty clippers. Miss Hames set up a company
called the Horse Barber five years ago
with her ‘business partner’ – an eightyear-old cob called Romeo, who is the
centrepiece for much of her work.
She has created designs based on
themes including the First World War,
Game of Thrones, Alice in Wonderland
and American Indians. Her creations can

take up to ten hours to complete and
prices range from £75 for a small coat
feature up to £650 for full body designs.
Miss Hames, who studied graphic
design at Salford University, said:
‘People’s reactions are amazing when
they see the finished piece.
‘The Remembrance Day clip really
resonated with people. It took me six
weeks to do my research and I visited
the Imperial War Museum to get some
ideas. Then I normally sketch some
ideas down on papers and get started.’
Miss Hames, from Bury, has plans to
hold more demonstrations for those
wanting to learn the theory of clipping
an equine coat, but also wants to launch
online courses. She said: ‘I consider
clipping to be an amazing art
form and would love to get
more people involved. I have
such a passion for it and want
to inspire the younger generation with my designs.’
Some horse owners pay for
vets to inject their horses
with sedative drugs while
they are clipped, but Miss
Hames instead relies on calm
handling techniques to keep
the horses still for their cut.

‘Peanut in

snowman
From Emily Kent Smith
in San Francisco
THIS is the first clear image of the Ultima
Thule planet four billion miles away – the
furthest object from Earth to be explored
by mankind.
Scientists yesterday admitted the
21 mile-long icy planet looked more like
a snowman than a peanut – the comparison used when the first blurry picture
emerged on Tuesday.
Experts from Nasa said the rock formation – actually two objects stuck together
– is likely to be hilly and covered in
ridges. The pictures were taken from
around 2,200 miles away by unmanned
spaceship New Horizons as it hurtled
through space at 32,000mph.
Scientists compared the object’s size to
that of the city of Washington DC in the
US. Some space fans, sharing their views
on social media, thought the object had
more of a likeness to Star Wars robot BB8. NASA experts last night told a press
conference in Maryland why they had
chosen the name Ultima Thule – used by
the Nazis to speak of a mythological
homeland for the Aryan race.
Alan Stern, principal investigator for
New Horizons, said: ‘The term Ultima
Thule, which is many centuries old, is a
wonderful meme for exploration.
‘Just because some bad guys once liked
that term, we are not going to let them
hijack it.’ He insisted of the discovery:
‘This is going to revolutionise our knowledge of planetary science.’
Author Judy

AUTHOR Judy Turner, who wrote historical
romances under the pen names Katie
Flynn and Judith Saxton, has died aged 82.
She sold more than eight million copies
of her 90 books after being inspired to
become a professional writer by having a
poem published in Enid Blyton’s Sunny
Stories magazine at the age of eight.
She continued to write even after being
diagnosed with ME in 1996, with her
daughter Holly working as her assistant.
Her last novel as Katie Flynn – A Christmas Gift – is due to be published by Penguin Random House in July.
Caroline Sheldon, her agent for over 30
years, said: ‘Writing was her life. She will
be much missed by all who knew her.’
SAJID Javid last night called in the
military as he tried to get a grip on the
Channel migrant crisis.
In a major escalation, a Royal Naval vessel
will today be sent to patrol the Straits of
Dover and the Royal Air Force will provide
aerial surveillance.

Home Secretary, who refused an offer of military
assistance from Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson at the weekend but last night changed
his mind and wrote to him requesting support.
At least 139 migrants were caught crossing
from France to Britain over Christmas, and 239
have reached the UK since November.
The Home Secretary was ridiculed after he
classified the crisis as a ‘major incident’ on Friday while remaining on a family safari holiday
6,000 miles away in South Africa.
When he returned to Whitehall on Monday, he
ordered the return of two Border Force cutters
from the Mediterranean but resisted the offer of

seen as a potential leadership rival.

said. ‘Because France is not a country where anyone would argue it is
not safe in any way whatsoever, and
if you are genuine, then why not
seek asylum in your first safe country?’ Mr Javid said those arriving in
Britain would have their application for asylum ‘processed in the
normal way’, but he added: ‘If you
do somehow make it to the UK, we
will do everything we can to make
sure that you are often not successful because we need to break that
link, and to break that link means
we can save more lives.’
Yvette Cooper, Labour chairman
of the home affairs select committee, said last night asylum claims
should be determined ‘according to
the law and the circumstances of
every individual case, not as an
arbitrary political decision supposedly to deter others. The Home
Secretary knows this, so to suggest
otherwise is completely wrong.’
Labour backbencher Stella Creasy
said Mr Javid’s remarks were normalising ‘anti-refugee rhetoric’.
She added: ‘The asylum system in
France is completely deadlocked
and I fear deliberately so – they
should be challenged on that. But
none of that means Britain can
absolve itself of responsibility to
refugees. People will continue to
die and be at mercy of traffickers all
the time politicians pretend to play
tough for votes rather than recognise why people flee.’
Paul Hook, head of campaigns at
the charity Refugee Action, added:
‘This situation demands our compassion and cool, calm heads and
we hope the Home Secretary will
reflect this in his statements on
the subject.’
Dr Lisa Doyle, director of advocacy at the Refugee Council, said:
‘It’s a shame the Home Secretary
seems to need reminding that seeking asylum is a right and the UK
has an obligation to assess claims
fairly and grant protection to those
who need it.’
But Mr Javid won support from
Charlie Elphicke, the Tory MP for
Dover and Deal, who said: ‘We need
to send a clear message that Britain is not a soft touch.’ Fellow Tory
Johnny Mercer tweeted: ‘Calm the
outrage. Sajid is spot on.’
And Lord West, the former first
sea lord, told Sky News: ‘We have
an agreement within the EU that
the first country that these people
come into should deal with them.
We should try and stop these people in French waters. I imagine that
very few are real refugees – most
will be economic migrants.’

HMC Protector remained

on the Greek island of Lesbos last night, according to
the ship’s locator beacon.
Both ships are part of
Operation Triton, which is
tackling the migration flows
from North Africa and the
Middle East to Italy, Greece
and Spain.
In a humiliating U-turn on
the migrant crisis, Mr Javid
announced on Monday that
the cutters would be
returning. He said that
around 230 migrants tried
to cross the Channel in
December, although just
under half were ‘disrupted’
by the French and never
left their waters.
The Home Office refused
to say when the ships would
reach the English Channel,
for ‘operational reasons’.
Only one of the five cutters – specialist boats which
are capable of rescuing several migrant boats at the
same time – has been working in the Straits of Dover.
As well as deploying cutters, the Home Secretary
has promised that ‘covert’
action would be taken on
the other side of the Channel to disrupt smuggling
rings as part of improved
cooperation with French
authorities.
Charlie Elphicke, the Tory
MP for Dover and Deal, said:

Woollies on as

Under review: International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt visiting a UK-funded project in Kenya last year

department could be axed as
part of a Treasury drive to slash
the cost of Whitehall.
Ministers are considering a broad
shake-up of the Whitehall machine
which could see a string of departments dropped or merged to free up
cash for front-line services.
Could our
foreign aid
ministry be
set for axe?
The move is part of this year’s comprehensive spending review, which will set
the course of Government budgets for
the next few years.
Under one plan, the Department for
International Development (Dfid), the
Department for International Trade and
the Department for Exiting the
EU would all be abolished. Their
work would be taken on by a beefed-up
Foreign Office.
It follows a series of controversies over
the Government’s commitment to spending 0.7 per cent of UK income on foreign
aid, which has seen the aid budget balloon to more than £14billion a year.
The Treasury is also looking at proposals to merge the Ministry of Housing and
Department for Transport with the
Department for Business to create a single ‘super-department’ handling business, infrastructure and investment.
A senior Treasury source said: ‘The
current Whitehall set-up is crazy – we
have more Government departments
than the United States.
‘Every time you create a new department it comes asking for more money …

Temperatures fell to -C overnight in
parts yesterday, with forecasters warning of a repeat of last year’s Beast from

The chilly weather will continue today
with temperatures unlikely to climb

Drivers are being warned to take care

While it will remain mostly dry this

The Met Office is also warning that the

colder – as the sudden jump in temperatures above the North Pole which triggered the Beast from the East last February recorded again this week.

asked viewers not to concentrate on picking apart performances.
‘It makes me sad that we really put a lot

‘It’s entertainment, we’re not trying to

rapid growth of Dfid has been a
source of irritation to the Foreign Office for years.
Former foreign secretary Boris
Johnson tried to persuade Mrs
May to give him control of the
aid budget when he took office
in 2016, describing the decision
to hive off the aid budget into its
own department in 1997 as a
‘colossal mistake’.
The Prime Minister turned
down the request. However, she
agreed that two junior ministers

Mr Johnson. New Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is said to be
more relaxed about the activities of Dfid, despite the fact its
vast spending power now makes
it a crucial arm of foreign policy.
Aid spending now dwarfs the
£2billion annual budget of the
Foreign Office. Rapid increases
in foreign aid spending have led
to criticism officials are more
interested in spending the money
than ensuring it is spent well.
Last month it emerged Dfid
was able to volunteer 600 of its
3,000 staff to help other departments prepare for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit – fuelling
concern it has grown too big.
A Dfid spokesman last night
dismissed suggestions the
department could be axed, saying: ‘Dfid is a standalone independent Government department. This is Government policy
and there is no suggestion it is
going to change.’
Dave Penman, of the FDA
union for civil servants, said:
‘The idea that there are significant sums to be saved simply by
merging departments is kindergarten economics. Unless the
Government changes what it
does, or does less – both of which
require significant policy development – changing the nameplate on the front door of a
department is no panacea to
delivering efficiencies.’

FORMER presidential candidate Mitt
Romney launched a scathing attack on
President Trump yesterday saying he has
‘not risen to the mantle of the office’.
Mr Romney said the US President had a
‘glaring shortfall’ in his character that
was destroying America’s reputation.
In a piece for the Washington Post he
attacked Mr Trump’s ‘thoughtless claim’
that America is being taken advantage
of on trade, adding: ‘A president should
demonstrate the essential qualities of
honesty and integrity, and elevate the
national discourse.
‘With the nation so divided, resentful
and angry, presidential leadership in
qualities of character is indispensable.
‘And it is in this province where the
incumbent’s shortfall has been most
glaring’. Mr Romney ran for the presidency in 2012, losing to Barack Obama.
Mr Trump tweeted: ‘Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security

IT may be best known for its burgers
– but McDonald’s has become the
latest in a string of major food
outlets to cater for our growing
interest in a plant-based diet.
As millions join the ‘Veganuary’
campaign – giving up meat, dairy and
fish for this month – the fast food giant is
today launching its first vegetarian
Happy Meal for children.
Plant-based:
It features a breaded red pesto goujon wrap

rather than the burger or chicken nuggets that
come with the standard Happy Meal.
A similar goujon will also be served
in the chain’s new Spicy Veggie Wrap
on its main adult menu. The new
Happy Meal Veggie Wrap was created with the Vegetarian Society and
the Britmums network, which put
together a panel of parents and children to help choose the final recipe.
The goujon in the tortilla wrap is
made mainly from yellow split peas,
tomato, Arborio rice, sundried
tomato pesto, tomato paste, red
pepper, olive oil, herbs and some
sugar, and is served with tomato
ketchup and shredded lettuce.
The ingredients are dairy-free and
vegan but the wraps pass through
the same toaster as the chain’s
buns, which contain milk, so
McDonald’s labels it as vegetarian.

as part of the Veganuary campaign.
It showed more young people will

from booze (7 per cent) as part of a
post-Christmas health kick.
Millions now define themselves as
‘flexitarians’, cutting down on animal products and often going without meat for several days at a time.
Warnings about the effects of livestock farming on the environment,
coupled with concerns about
health and animal welfare, are the
main driving forces.
The Happy Meal Veggie Wrap has
209 calories – less than the 250 in a
burger but higher than the 173 in

the children’s menu. It has less fat

Lynne Elliot, of the Vegetarian
Society, said: ‘There’s a growing
demand for veggie food and it’s fantastic to see McDonald’s meeting
the needs of their customers.’

Jack Shepherd was
drunk when he drove
Charlotte to her death
in his speedboat. Now,
astonishingly, he’s
using legal aid to fight
his conviction — while
he’s on the run. But
YOU can help right
this terrible wrong
By Sam Greenhill
and Neil Sears
THE Daily Mail today offers a
£25,000 reward to catch fugitive
speedboat killer Jack Shepherd.
He is mocking the law by appealing his
conviction and six-year jail sentence
while being on the run.
Shepherd, 31, drunkenly flipped his speedboat on the River Thames while showing off
to his date Charlotte Brown, 24.
He was saved but selfishly failed to tell
rescuers about Miss Brown. She was pronounced dead after being pulled unconscious from the cold waters.
The smartly-dressed killer was found
guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence
by an Old Bailey jury last July, and a judge
sentenced him to six years in jail.
But by then, arrogant Shepherd was on
the run, having absconded while on bail in
March following a pre-trial hearing.
Now the Mail is offering the cash reward to
help efforts to haul him back to face justice.
Our gesture follows outrage at the twotiming killer, who has a child with his wife,
being granted the right to mount a taxpayer-funded appeal from his hiding place.
A legal aid law firm has helped him submit
his appeal from his unknown bolthole.
Under client confidentiality rules, his lawyers do not have to help police find him.
Detectives hunting Shepherd, of Paddington, central London, but originally from
Exeter, Devon, suspect he may have fled the
UK, possibly to Spain or Georgia.
At the trial, his barrister said ‘cowardice’
had prevented Shepherd from facing Miss
Brown’s devastated family in court. Last
night her father, Graham Brown, said:
‘Making a mockery
of justice’
‘Thank you Daily Mail, I am very happy
with the £25,000 reward. Jack Shepherd
should know that I will stop at nothing –
whatever it takes to ensure he serves his
sentence. For my beautiful daughter. We
owe it to her memory.’
He added: ‘It’s very important that Shepherd is caught, not just for my family, but
for the wider public to have faith in the legal
system. This fugitive is making a mockery
of justice, being on the run while receiving
tens of thousands of pounds of legal aid
money to launch an appeal.
‘The family are very keen that he comes
back and serves his sentence, so that we
can try to move on, and indeed so he can.

As the semi-retired boss of Tuckers Solicitors, the firm which has received £93,000 of
public money to represent fugitive Jack Shepherd, Mr Sinclair has both the time and the

How law shields fugitives
FUGITIVE Jack Shepherd is legally allowed
to fight his conviction while on the run.
The European Convention on Human
Rights ensures that a fugitive is guaranteed
the same ‘right to justice’ as the rest of us,
even if he is a convicted killer.
And the solicitors trying to keep Shepherd
out of jail will be aware of the precedent set
by a 2001 appeal case involving sex offender
Lee Tucker and robber Jerome Charles.
Tucker was given eight years for crimes the
year before but went on the run before the
end of his trial. Despite this, he claimed the
right to appeal. Seperately, Charles had been
convicted of a £25,000 raid on a travel agents
in 1998 but absconded hours before the guilty
verdict. He was sentenced to seven years in
his absence, but tried to appeal regardless.
The two cases were bundled together and
passed to the Court of Appeal.
The court ruled that under Article 6 of the
European Convention on Human Rights, all
defendants are entitled to a fair legal hearing
– including a gun-wielding robber and a sex
offender. Speedboat romeo Jack Shepherd is
now benefiting from this ruling.

Fall in, you ’orrible
little snowflakes!
Desperate Army launches new recruitment drive
By Larisa Brown
Defence and Security Editor
WHAT would an old-style
sergeant major say? After
telling soldiers it was all right
to cry, the Army is now
seeking recruits from the
snowflake generation.
Its new poster campaign
appeals to computer game geeks
and selfie addicts.
The adverts, unveiled today, are
inspired by the famous First World
War poster featuring a pointing
Lord Kitchener and the slogan
‘Your country needs you’.
Part of a £1.5million recruitment
campaign for 2019, they show six
soldiers with labels of modern
stereotypes, such as ‘phone
zombies’ and ‘class clowns’ above
the slogan ‘Your Army needs you’.
The aim is to sign up millennials
with compassion, self-belief and
focus to boost falling numbers
and widen the base of Britain’s
79,000-strong Army.
The campaign is a follow-up to
last year’s £1.6million recruitment
‘We look beyond
the stereotype’
drive that featured adverts saying it
was fine for soldiers to cry, pray and
show emotion. It resulted in
applications to be a regular soldier
hitting a five-year high.
The new radio, TV and online
adverts seek to reassure potential
recruits that their perceived weaknesses are seen as strengths by the
Army. Selfie-takers are lauded as
self-confident, phone zombies as
having focus and the Me Generation for their self-belief.
Army recruitment chief Major
General Paul Nanson said: ‘The
Army sees people differently and
we are proud to look beyond the
stereotypes and spot the potential
in young people. We understand the
drive they have to succeed.’
Colonel Ben Wilde, assistant head
of Army recruiting, told Soldier
Magazine: ‘They have a level of
technical know-how that my generation generally does not possess.
‘People embarking on their
professional life often do not
just want a job … they want to do
something that matters.’
Melting pot: The new adverts seek to appeal to recruits from all backgrounds and are based on the 1914 Kitchener poster, inset

denied being intimately involved
and maintain they are just
friends. A source suggested the
pair could have been taking
part in a dance at the event,
also attended by Labour’s chief
strategist Seumas Milne.
Their presence at the hotel’s
three-day gala costing £429 a
head will raise further questions
about the influence that Unite,
Britain’s largest union, has over
the Labour Party – which it has
long bankrolled.
Ahead of the 2017 general elec-
tion, the union donated £4.4million to Labour’s campaign. Mr
McCluskey, who is nicknamed
Red Len, has openly joked about
his role as the party’s ‘kingmaker’ and his desire to shape
its policy, sometimes in conflict
with Mr Corbyn.
Concerns have been raised
within the party over the Unite
leader’s growing power with Mr
Corbyn’s critics calling it a
‘takeover by stealth’.
Redhead Miss Murphy was at
the centre of a row over Labour’s
selection of an election candidate in Falkirk in 2013 amid
claims of vote-rigging by Unite.
The divorced mother-of-two
was temporarily suspended
from the party after it was
claimed the union had flooded
the local branch with members
in an attempt to get her the
nomination. Miss Murphy, who
voluntarily withdrew from the
contest, was cleared by the
party of any wrongdoing.
Mr McCluskey, who was married for 25 years, separated from
his long-term partner Paula
Lace several years ago.
Unite said Mr McCluskey and
Miss Murphy were among a
group of friends interacting
during a new year celebration.

Speaking during a trip to Singapore, Mr Hunt also said a nodeal Brexit was ‘not something
that any government should willingly wish on its people’. How-
ever, he issued a warning against
a second vote, saying: ‘A second
referendum would be also incredibly damaging in a different way
because we are a democracy. We
have been given our instructions
by the British people.
‘They’ve asked us to leave the
European Union and they’re
expecting us to get on with that.’
He added: ‘The social conse-
quences in one of the oldest democracies in the world of not going ahead
and leaving the EU on the 29th
March as we’ve been instructed to
do would be devastating.’
In 2016 Mr Hunt said promising to
hold a second vote would ‘concentrate minds’ in Brussels. He argued
that the Government should ‘negotiate a deal and put it to the British
people, either in a referendum or…
at a fresh general election’.
Labour MP Virendra Sharma, who
is campaigning for a second referendum, accused Mr Hunt of hardening
his Eurosceptic credentials in hope
of becoming the next Tory leader.
He said: ‘It’s time 2019 Jeremy listened to 2016 Jeremy and gave the
people the final say on Brexit.’
Yesterday Mr Hunt also suggested
that Theresa May will be ready to
unveil fresh details of negotiations
with Brussels when MPs return from
‘Damaging to our
democracy’
their Christmas break next week.
He said Mrs May was seeking
‘clearer language’ on the controversial Irish backstop, which critics
fear could leave the UK trapped in a
customs union against its will.
The Prime Minister is looking for
written assurances that the arrangement will be only temporary.
Mrs May abandoned a vote on her
deal last month after Tory whips
warned she faced a crushing defeat.
No 10 was tight-lipped about the
state of talks with the EU ahead of
another crunch vote on Mrs May’s
deal on or around January 15,
although sources played down prospects of an imminent breakthrough.
DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds,
whose party is critical to Mrs May’s
deal winning approval, was also seen
emerging from Downing Street yesterday following talks.

Canaries: We’ll axe
tourist tax after exit
THE Canary Islands want to axe
a tourist tax imposed on British
visitors after Brexit.
Leaders of the eight islands, which

say it would help them stay competitive for UK holidaymakers after

General Tax imposed on spending
including bar bills and dining out.
President Fernando Clavijo said
the Canary Islands had to go ‘hand
in hand’ as a society and ‘fight’ in
Europe. Russian visitors have been
exempted from it during a trial.
It is not yet known how the proposed tax waiver would work.
But it could involve Britons
reclaiming their spend on the tax at
the end of their stay, in the way that
non-EU tourists to the UK are currently allowed to reclaim VAT.
Although visitor numbers dropped

last year, a tax-cutting move could
boost profitability in the tourism
sector – a vital part of the Spanish
islands’ economy.
The Canaries received more than
16million tourists in 2017, with Britons making up the largest share.
The Canary Islands have special
flexibility to vary certain EU measures because they are designated
‘outermost regions’ of the union.
EU rules allow them to make
changes to regional policy ‘to address
the challenges faced by the outermost regions because of their
remoteness, insularity, small size,
difficult topography and climate,
and dependence on a few products’.
Madeira and the Azores are also
‘outermost regions’ but, as yet,
there is no indication whether these
Portuguese territories are likely to
offer post-Brexit concessions to
British tourists.

Was murdered bouncer
guarding posh sex party?
Riddle after
fraudster is
linked to ‘wild’
Mayfair bash
By Mario Ledwith
and Christian Gysin
Victim: Mr Siminiov, circled,
fighting off the gatecrashers
A DOORMAN killed after fighting off a gang trying to get into a
New Year’s event on one of Britain’s most exclusive streets may
have been guarding a sex party,
it emerged last night.
Tudor Simionov, 33, was hailed as a
hero after he valiantly fought off up to
nine gatecrashers outside the £12.5million townhouse in Mayfair, central London, in the early hours before being
stabbed in the chest.
Notorious fraudster ‘Lord’ Eddie Davenport was yesterday linked to the party,
called ‘wild’ by one employee.
Last night an employee at the event
revealed that sex parties are regularly
hosted at the property, where guests can
pay up to £500 to hire a bedroom. The
source, who did not wish to be named,
said party-goers can pay up to £3,000 for
access to the venue, where drug-fuelled
sex parties often run until 8am.
Numerous swingers’ parties have been
advertised online at the Mayfair property by the organiser London Adult Party
Club. It is not suggested that Davenport
is connected with these events.
The insider told MailOnline: ‘He [Davenport] had a lot of his friends and old
clients there. It was all going well until
the bad element turned up. The hostess
told the door staff not to let them in and
then it all kicked off.

COMMENT
Rail unions’ greed
has driven up fares
AS bare-faced hypocrisy goes, it really does
take some beating.
Rail union members – whose nakedly
political campaign of strikes and exorbitant
pay demands have made travelling by train
an ordeal for millions – were protesting
outside stations yesterday demanding a
fairer deal for passengers.
Who do they think they are fooling?
True, Network Rail and inept operating
companies have contributed greatly to the
rail shambles. But there is no question that
the main source of both disruption and
higher fares has been union militancy.
Take the dispute over driver-only operated
trains. The RMT, which represents guards,
says they are unsafe (even though they
have been used around the country –
indeed around the world – for decades).
As a result the union launched a
coordinated campaign of strikes which
caused more than 60 days of chaos on
Northern and South Western lines last year.
Yet Southern Rail drivers from the union
Aslef have agreed to drop their opposition
to these trains, in return for an eye-popping
28.5 per cent pay rise over five years.
So were they prepared to compromise
their own and passengers’ safety in
exchange for cash? Or is the truth that
driver-only services are perfectly safe?
And who pays for these massive pay rises?
The long-suffering passenger of course.
As fares have soared, rail staff have done
very nicely, with drivers on Southern set to
rake in a basic £63,000 a year for a four-day
week – rising to £75,000 with overtime.
If they really wanted a fair deal for
passengers, they’d stop driving up fares
with extortionate pay demands and end
their spiteful strike action.
But they don’t. All these wreckers want is
a return to nationalisation, which – as we
know from the bitter experience of British
Rail – would give them even greater power
to spread misery across the network.
A crowded House
IN an opinion poll last year, the public’s
verdict on the House of Lords was
excoriating – bloated, out of touch and
hopelessly out of date.
They said it was stuffed with ‘cronies and
retired or failed politicians’, and an
overwhelming majority wanted it ruthlessly
slashed in size.
Now, it seems, even the Lord Speaker
agrees. The Upper House is simply too big,
Lord Fowler says, and too many of its
denizens merely ‘passengers’.
And who could argue? With more than
800 members, the Lords is the world’s
second biggest legislative chamber (after
China’s National People’s Congress).
Yet more peers are created every year,
with party leaders engaging in an arms
race to secure a majority.
The Mail doesn’t pretend to have a magic
formula for creating the perfect second
chamber but there must be reform.
Otherwise the Lords will collapse under its
own weight.
As a first step, numbers should be cut to,
at most, the size of the Commons –
currently 650.
The cronies, donors and mediocrities
must be weeded out, and replaced
by people of genuine quality from the
worlds of science, business, academia and
the arts.
This House has been a retirement home
(and source of unearned income) for timeservers and party hacks long enough. It
has become a national embarrassment.

a young woman is sentenced to six years

How utterly terrifying
they’ll pull the plug
on your life support . . .
because of a message
you left on Facebook
by Dr Max
H
Pemberton
OW often have
you dashed off
an email, only to
re-read it months
or years later and
shake your head in
disbelief that you’d ever
written it?
Or posted your thoughts on
social media about a topical
issue, only to have an entirely
different opinion after mulling
it over a little longer?
Our brains are highly sophisticated computers, constantly
assessing and re-assessing the
data we feed in — and
influenced, of course, by the
physiological and emotional
reactions of our bodies.
We change our minds all the
time as a result, so our digital
histories are littered with
things we no longer believe
and express feelings we no
longer have.
But now this has taken on a
horrifying new dimension. To
put it starkly, one Facebook
post might be enough to bring
about your death.
Chilling
Yes, it’s like something out of
a dystopian novel. But it’s all
the more chilling because it is
true and is actually being
recommended by the medical
establishment.
This week the British
Medical Association, no less,
released guidance recommending that the relatives of
patients who are so ill they
cannot make a decision for
themselves, and who have no
prospect of recovery, should
trawl through those patients’
Tw i t t e r, Fa c e b o o k a n d
Instagram posts or emails for
references to death, to help
reach a decision on whether
to withdraw treatment or
switch off life support.
This guidance — which
quite frankly appals me —
follows a test case last October in which a High Court
judge ruled that a 74-year-old
woman in a coma could have
her feeding tubes removed.
He made his decision because,
in an email to her daughter
written in 2013, the woman had
referred to her own father who
had suffered with dementia
before his death. ‘I am still
haunted by how he ended up...’
she wrote. ‘Get the pillow ready
if I get that way! Love Mum.’
The unnamed woman was
known to be a heavy drinker
and is thought to have watched
a documentary about dementia just before she sent the
email. The judge decided, however, that her comment was
not a ‘throwaway’ remark.
Now, I have no ideological
objection to treatment being
withdrawn from seriously ill
patients who will never get
better and cannot communicate their wishes.
I believe the job of a doctor
is to alleviate suffering, not
extend life unquestioningly.
And there are certain situations — suffering chronic pain
that cannot be managed and
with no hope of reprieve, or
being completely paralysed,
for example — when I would
not want to live and indeed
would consider it cruel of
others to proactively extend
my life in any way.
But I have made my feelings
clear to my family and loved
ones on this issue, and I trust
that if they had to decide on
switching off my ventilator or
removing feeding tubes, they
know me well enough to make
the right judgment call.
What I wouldn’t want is
some doctor deciding to flip
the switch or pull a tube
because of something I’d once
written in an email.
We are all prone to hyperbole, exaggeration and overstatement for effect. I’m sure
we’ve all said or written, at
one time or another, that ‘I’d
rather die than do such and
such . . .’ Of course we didn’t
actually mean it.
Yet how might this be
interpreted if I were on a
ventilator? Could some
humourless ‘tick-box’ medic
fail to grasp the way it was
intended and instead assume
this was my laissez-faire
attitude to life and therefore
evidence I wanted to die?
The BMA’s guidelines are
particularly worrying because,
following a Supreme Court
ruling in July last year, doctors
are able to withdraw feeding
tubes (known as ‘clinically
assisted nutrition and hydration’ or CANH) without having
to seek approval from a judge,
as they once did. They must
consult with families, but in
reality it means even more of
these complex ethical
decisions are now essentially
in the hands of medics.
There are already several
options for those of us who
feel strongly about end-of-life
decisions. We can make a
Living Will that outlines what
we do and don’t want to
happen in the event of us
being incapacitated, and there
are various organisations and
websites to help us document
our wishes. Or we can appoint
a health and welfare attorney
who has the power to order
doctors to end a life in certain
circumstances.
However, most of us don’t
consider these options or
make the most of the information resources because we
never really think we’ll be
affected — until we are.
Careless
And isn’t that the whole
point? Few of us ever give
serious consideration to what
we would want our families to
do if we became incapable of
deciding for ourselves whether
we wanted to live or die.
So how on earth can some
careless posts taken out of
context on social media, or
flippant emails, possibly be
assumed to be real reflections
of what we think or feel in a
specific, complex life-anddeath situation?
In the course of my medical
career, I have found that
families and loved ones are,
even allowing for their grief,
very good at knowing what
their partners or relatives
would or wouldn’t want. Even
if end-of-life care was never
explicitly discussed, they have
a sense of the person and I
have always trusted this.
Now I worry that in the
event of a disagreement
between relatives and/or the
medical profession, old posts
or emails — as the BMA is
advising — might be dug out
as ‘evidence’ of someone’s
wishes when they are nothing
of the sort.
It is utterly perverse that
while we are incredibly wary
of assisted dying in this
country precisely because of
the risk of abuse of vulnerable
people, these guidelines have
been produced without any
seeming awareness of how
they might also be misused in
certain situations.
Pernicious
I am a member of the BMA
— it is supposedly the trade
union for the medical profession and is there to defend the
interests of doctors. But I
think the organisation has
lost the plot. Now its leaders
prefer to weigh in on all
manner of public health
debates and ethical and social
policy, not least because they
know they will generate
headlines in doing so.
The BMA has become a
platform for a particular kind
of pernicious Left-wing and
‘progressive’ mindset by
people who are using the
union to push forward their
own political ideologies and
their own version of medical
ethics — and that, I believe,
includes a heavily pro euthanasia stance.
The BMA’s official position
is that it is opposed to all
forms of assisted dying, but
I would argue that these
new guidelines suggest this
is changing.
After the 2018 Supreme
Court ruling, confidential
BMA draft guidance was
leaked suggesting that
doctors should be able to
end the lives not only of
patients who are in a
minimally conscious (vegetative) state, but also patients
with dementia or other
degenerative disease if they
can’t feed themselves.
This is euthanasia by stealth.
Many of my colleagues feel the
same. The new guidelines are
yet another horrifying step in
that direction.

HOW I SEE IT
by Robert
Hardman
Y
oU can spot them as they
come through the shop
door. They are the ones with
the bags full already. And
they all know the score.
You just stick your bottle in the hole, wait
for the whirring and the sudden, reassuring
‘squelch-thunk’ as it’s flattened, and then see
your refund come up on the screen.
At the end, a receipt pops out which you
redeem against your shopping bill or donate
to charity.
It is easy, painless and common sense —
given the return on every bottle. It is considerably more lucrative than the reward
schemes offered by certain retail chains.
Spend £100 at some stores and you might
get a few pence back on a loyalty card. Here
at Iceland, it is a straight 10p per bottle. And
it soon adds up. A 24-pack of 500ml bottles of
mineral water, for example, costs £3 but it is
actually just 60p by the time you have taken
the bottles back.
Though similar schemes have operated on a
major scale in certain European countries for
years, the UK is still in the experimental
phase. And Iceland has led the way, operating
pilot schemes in a handful of locations. Yet
the results speak for themselves. Yesterday,
the company announced that in a matter of
months, it has recycled more than 300,000
bottles, averaging more than 2,500 a day. That
is with just five machines.
It is, of course, a tiny fraction of the estimated
14 billion plastic bottles which the British
public get through each year, but it shows the
astonishing potential for a proper national
deposit scheme. It also raises a very simple
question: what the hell are we all waiting for?
I am at the Iceland branch on London’s
North End Road standing next to the very
first of these machines to be installed in
Britain. It has been doing a steady trade ever
since it was plugged in last May.
‘I love it and I can’t work out why they don’t
have these in every supermarket across the
country,’ says Joanna Ioannou, a photographer, as she tips the contents of four carrier
bags into the bright red machine, just as she
does every few weeks. ‘It certainly makes me
keep on coming back here.’
So-called return vending machines have
been around for more than two decades in
parts of Scandinavia, where taking back your
empties is now as much a part of everyday life
as meatballs and a bleak cop drama on a long,
cold evening. The number of plastic bottles in
landfill sites there is now zero per cent.

ERE in Britain, we might chuck
our plastic bottles in with the
rest of the recycling, but it is a
pretty hit-and-miss business.
It only needs an old nappy or a dash of
tomato sauce in the mix to make the whole
exercise pointless. And it transpires that,
rather than recycle it, we have just been
shipping a lot of it to China or anywhere
else that will accommodate tons of nondegradable rubbish.
Any litter-picking survey will put plastic
drinks bottles near the top of any list. When I
joined last year’s Daily Mail Great Plastic
Pick-up on the Sussex coast, I remember
armfuls of the things.
Anyone of a certain age in this country will
recall the days when children would round up
empty glass pop bottles and take them back
to the local shop for a few pennies. But glass
was cumbersome and dangerous. Left on a
beach, it could maim a child. Which is why we
were all happy enough when plastic started to
consume our lives.

plastic bags — following years of
pressure from the Mail — the
Government needs to take a lead
if these things are to be effective.
So what is the obstacle?
The Environment Secretary,
Michael Gove, has promised us a
deposit return scheme (DRS) at
some point, pending consultation.
Yet his department is hardly
bursting with enthusiasm.
‘Consulting on a deposit return
scheme will ensure we get this
scheme right long term,’ says a
spokesperson. ‘But we welcome
the efforts by Iceland and other
organisations to tackle this
issue.’ In other words, don’t hold
your breath.
Here at the Fulham branch of
Iceland, it is all bewilderingly
simple. Store manager Simon
Felstead says that his Swedishdesigned machine is virtually
maintenance-free.
The only thing it doesn’t like are
bottles which have been squashed
already, and those which are not
plastic. It has barcode sensors
which will spit out anything inappropriate and can detect anything
which is not sold at Iceland.
Each batch of squashed plastic
is collected by the next delivery
lorry that turns up and taken to
the nearest depot, from where it is
sent off for recycling. ‘It ensures a
totally clean recycling stream,’
explains Niklas Engstrom, sales
director of RVM Systems, the
Scandinavian company which
makes the machines.
The company now has thousands
of them operating in 15 countries
but, thus far, just a couple of dozen
in the UK.
It was Iceland which led the way
last summer, just as it has been the
first chain to remove eco-unfriendly
palm oil from its product lines,
and the first to pledge an end to
plastic food packing.
Since then, Tesco and Morrison
have also introduced experimental machines at a handful of
branches on a trial basis. The
results have already impressed

Britain. In fact, I would bet
that, proportionately, there are
fewer there than here.
If the brains of Mr Corbyn

in the disastrous socialist
experiments of the sixties and
seventies, they would have the

needless to say, I’m not

Its anti-gay legislation is
repellent, though a recent poll
suggested a shift in public

there to be change.
And, although I deprecate
the habit of spitting chewing

the British way.

We certainly appear to have a

Above all, our politicians —
not just Labour — should ask
themselves whether lower

improved education system,
might boost economic growth
in Britain as they have done so
dramatically in singapore.
I realise we are very different
people with different histories,
but can’t we learn something
from them? surely it’s clear
that the country is about as far
as is possible from Corbyn’s
‘bargain basement economy’.

he is right, though, when he
says Britain ‘can learn lessons’
from singapore. I don’t know
whether he truly believes this,
or whether he is simply trying
to please Tories back home.
On the whole, I am prepared
to give him the benefit of
the doubt.
The real lesson we can learn
is not to borrow this or that
policy, though there are clearly
some we should adopt. It is
rather that, whatever version
of Brexit is eventually delivered, Britain will prosper if
it shows one-quarter of the
optimism, self-belief and
enterprise of a tiny country
half a century ago.
Unless, that is, Corbyn,
Mcdonnell and emily Thornberry end up ruling the roost.
In that case, Venezuela, not
singapore, will be our lodestar
and calamity our only friend.

Pope’s Hand of God moment...
Daily Mail, Thursday, January 3, 2019
Apple’s shock
warning over
iPhone sales
APPLE last night shocked
investors with a warning that
sales of its iPhone were slowing around the world.
The company’s boss Tim Cook
said revenues in the last three
months of 2018 had been disappointing and would come in billions of pounds below what had
been predicted.
Ball skills:
Pope Francis
yesterday
DIEGO Maradona had the Hand of God with
him … but fellow Argentinian Pope Francis is
not to be outdone.
The pontiff showed off his sporting
prowess yesterday as he balanced a football
on his finger.
Francis has often shown off a playful side at
his weekly audiences with worshippers in
Mail Foreign Service
the Vatican. In November he allowed a
young deaf boy to play on the podium
during a papal audience.
Yesterday members of Cuba’s national
circus, CirCuba, attended the weekly papal
audience with one performer marvelling as
the Pope spun a football on his fingertip.
After the announcement, Apple
shares plunged by 8 per cent in
after-hours trading. It came after
months of rumours about a lack of
demand for its latest phones, which
underwent their latest glossy
upgrade in September.
The newest model, the iPhone XS,
starts at £999 but has been criticised
for being too similar to previous versions. In a letter to investors, Mr
Cook admitted sales had failed to
meet expectations around the world
and blamed the strong dollar and an
economic slowdown in China in particular. He said a trade war between
China and the US had also added to
the company’s woes.
This meant sales for the fourth
quarter would come in just short of
£67billion – below a previous estimate
of £71billion.
Mr Cook said: ‘China’s economy
began to slow in the second half of
By Matt Oliver
2018. The government-reported GDP
growth during the September quarter was the second lowest in the last
25 years. We believe the economic
environment in China has been further impacted by rising trade tensions with the United States.’
The letter came after months of
reports pointing to weak demand for
the new models of iPhone. Apple had
also taken the unusual step of advertising discounts on its website for
customers trading in old handsets.
The company has stunned Wall
Street for years with its seemingly
unstoppable growth, smashing analyst estimates repeatedly.
In its last earnings update, it
revealed it had raked in around
£130million a day in profit.
Despite the grim update for investors, Mr Cook said the number of
Apple devices in use had grown to an
all-time high and increased by
100million in just a year.
He also said the company expected
to have finished the quarter with
around £103billion in cash.
He stressed: ‘We can’t change
macro-economic conditions,
but we are undertaking and
accelerating other initiatives to
improve our results.’

bystanders should call 999 before trying

by two rescue breaths.
It recommends compressions only for
those unwilling to give the ‘kiss of life’,

Assad’s auntie
‘bought’ right
to stay in UK
BASHAr al-Assad’s aunt was secretly
given permission to live in the UK after
promising to spend millions here.
Her two sons, who are cousins of the Syrian dictator, were also allowed here when
Theresa May was Home Secretary.
The 63-year-old woman is the wife of
rifaat al-Assad, known as the ‘Butcher of
Hama’ for his role in a massacre in 1982.
He owned hundreds of properties in Britain, france and Spain, many of which have
been seized. The 80-year-old fled to europe
after a failed coup against his brother,
Hafez, Bashar’s father, in 1984.
His fourth wife was granted indefinite
leave to remain in Britain in 2012 at the
height of the Syrian civil war. Her two sons,
now aged 22 and 37, were also allowed to
stay, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The case is revealed in a 37-page ruling
by the Home office’s special immigration
appeals commission, which restricts the
naming of the woman and her sons.
The family had lodged an appeal after
being denied UK citizenship. The commission rejected their claim, saying it would
damage the UK’s international relations.
The aunt first came here in 2006 when she
was given entry clearance as an investor.
A Home office spokesman said: ‘We do
not comment on individual cases.’

Knifed policeman tells how
he grabbed terror suspect
A HERO policeman who was
stabbed as he tackled a suspected jihadi knifeman on
New Year’s Eve told yesterday how ‘instinct took over’.
Sergeant Lee Valentine was one
of a team of officers who grabbed
the man, armed with two knives,
as he carried out a frenzied
attack on a screaming couple.
Sergeant Valentine, who is in his
30s, was knifed in the shoulder as
the suspect – shouting extremist
slogans – was overpowered using a
taser. The officer is now recovering
at home after hospital treatment
but yesterday gave his account of
‘Policing at its
most dangerous’
the horrific attack as the family of
the 25-year-old suspected terrorist
said they were ‘eternally grateful’
for the swift response of police.
The man – understood to be of
Somali origin – has been sectioned
under the Mental Health Act after
being arrested on suspicion of
attempted murder. The couple, in
their 50s, both suffered stab
wounds but were yesterday making
progress in hospital. Sergeant Valentine, of British Transport Police,
said: ‘We had no idea what we were
running towards when we heard
the screams on New Year’s Eve.
‘When we saw the man wielding a
knife, instinct took over and we
By James Tozer
were able to successfully detain
him.’ He added: ‘The past 48 hours
have been overwhelming. My team
and I are grateful to everyone who
sent in messages of support – it
really does mean the world to us.’
The attack at Manchester’s
Victoria railway station took place
close to the scene of the 2017 suicide
bombing at an Ariana Grande
concert which killed 22 people.
BTP’s chief constable Paul
Crowther said the memory of the
bombing would have been in his
officers’ minds when they ran to
help on Monday. He praised their
‘tenacity and dedication’ and said
their bravery had spared Manchester from further carnage.
Mr Crowther added: ‘Whilst this
incident is an example of policing
at its finest it also serves as a dark
reminder of policing at its most
dangerous.’ In a video of the suspect being taken to a police van he
yelled ‘Long live the Caliphate’ – a
reference to Islamic State’s enclave
in the Middle East – and ‘Allahu
Akbar’, or ‘God is greatest’.
Police said they were ‘increasingly
confident that the man acted alone
in the final stages of the attack’.
But they were still examining ‘if
anybody may have encouraged or
assisted’ him. Officers searched his
home in nearby Cheetham Hill.
His family yesterday said their
‘thoughts and prayers’ are with the
injured, adding: ‘We are also eternally grateful for the swift response
from the emergency services.’

Ronan told Harper’s Bazaar.
‘I wasn’t unaware there were people in the industry who abused their
power, or who were seedy or untrustworthy. But because of her I was never
a victim and I’m very, very thankful.’
She added: ‘I didn’t leave home at
19 all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – I
hadn’t been wrapped in cotton wool
– but I had been protected.’ Miss
Ronan rose to fame as a child star
and was nominated for her first Oscar
for her supporting role in Atonement
at the age of 12. She has gone on to
star in a number of criticallyacclaimed films and earned Best
Actress Oscar nominations for her
roles in Brooklyn and Lady Bird.
Miss Ronan plays Mary Stuart in the

says: ‘Deliverance is an area of ministry

that while they can sit sideby-side with a child, ‘you

england does not have confession boxes, but priests
can hear the sins of worshippers in private. The secrecy
of confession is required by
a Church law laid down in
1603, which bishops had
considered repealing.
The new guidelines say
that if a disclosure of child
abuse is made in confession
by someone who wants to be
forgiven for their sins, ‘the
priest is forbidden from disclosing anything, including
any criminal offence, which
is revealed in the course of
the confession.’
However, they add: ‘Where a
penitent discloses in the
course of such a confession
that he/she has committed a
serious crime, the priest
should require him/her to
report it to the police or other
statutory authority and
should withhold absolution if
the penitent refuses to do so.’
The guidelines do not advise
on how a priest can check if a
penitent has contacted
police. They also stress that
sex offenders may be banned
from taking tea or coffee after
a service and from joining the
choir or bellringers.

numbers required to win the EuroMillions draw is around one in 140million
– 14 times the odds of being struck by

impossible chances, the winner

SHOCK SUGAR IN
It looks unbelievable —
but in 136 bags, this is the
22 stones of sugar children
now eat by the age of ten.
Yet is it any wonder when
(as our grid reveals)
so many daily staples
are loaded with it...
T
he news that our
children are consuming 22st of sugar
before the age of ten
i s s h o c k i n g. B u t
getting their diet right is
by no means as straightforward as just avoiding
sugary puddings, cakes
and sweets.
Sugar is added to an astonishing array of foods, including
many savoury products, too.
Sugars include what are called
‘free sugars’ — for example,
sugar or honey added to sweeten
foods, as well as unsweetened
fruit juices and smoothies.
Added sugar should be no
more than 5 per cent of our total
energy. Other sugars are found
naturally in dairy products and
whole fruit and vegetables.
According to our labelling system, more than 22.5g of total
sugars per 100g in food counts as
‘high’, and will be displayed in
red on nutritional information.
Anything between 5g and 22.5g
is ‘medium’, and will appear
amber, while 5g or less per 100g
is considered ‘low’ sugar, and the
figure will be displayed in green.
B
ut tam Fry, chair of the
National Obesity Forum
warns: ‘While this
suggests some foods are
healthier, it doesn’t take into
account how much of that food
you may eat.
‘If you have a product with just
under 5g of sugar per 100g but
eat 400g, you may still be
consuming almost 20g.’
And the problem with our
labelling system is that you often
don’t know how much of the
sugar is added sugar. ‘Look for
added sugar in the ingredients
list as well as the overall amount,’
says nutritionist Rick hay.
tam Fry adds that our food
labelling system is designed for
the quantities needed by an
adult woman. ‘You need to be a
mathematical genius to work
out how much your children
should have,’ he says.

A MURDER inquiry has been

in New Year
‘arson attack’
Police are said to believe two victims
may have been stabbed – and their
chief suspect also died in the blaze.
A source said detectives were investigating the theory that a relationship
between two of those involved could
have triggered the bloodshed.
A neighbour told how he pulled a
woman from the blazing house in the
early hours of New Year’s Day.
John Holland, who lives opposite the
£340,000 property in Kirton, Lincolnshire, said he and another neighbour
ran to the house after being woken
shortly before 3am. He added: ‘I could
see flames shooting through the roof.
‘There was a lady in the downstairs
window. Me and this other chap, we
rushed over to the front door. I

Police confirmed a 27-year-old
woman and two men aged 24 and
32 had died. They are yet to be
formally identified.
Superintendent Di Coulson said:
‘There is one suspect and we
believe that suspect died within
the property.’ She added there had
been a relationship between two of
the parties involved and ‘the incident we believe is as a result of an
issue with that relationship’.

The 12-strong gang, jailed last
month, stole loot worth a total
of £2million.
High-powered cars, jewellery,
weapons and even designer dogs
were among the items targeted by
the thieves in crimes across the
East of England. The burglary rate
in Norfolk halved after their arrest
in December 2017.
The criminals, all members of the
traveller community aged between
20 and 55, were sentenced to a total
of 71 years for their roles in more
than 200 burglaries.
Now Cambridgeshire Police is trying to find the rightful owners of
stolen goods it recovered.
The force posted images online of
items including a jewel-studded
Rolex Air King worth around £3,000,
a Rolex Date worth £2,500 and a war
medal for ‘the liberation of Kuwait’.
Jailing the gang at Norwich Crown
Court in December, Judge Stephen
Holt said the 11-month crime spree
was the most serious he had seen
tated by people having their homes
invaded by you,’ he said.
Detective Inspector Craig Harrison
said after the sentencing: ‘Every one
of their crimes had a victim, so the
trauma and devastation caused in
quite a short space of time was
immense. They clearly had no care
at all for the impact their offending
was having.’
Most of the burglaries were at
homes in rural areas, where it was
easier to get away without being
seen. The offences were committed
in broad daylight by gang members
wearing balaclavas as they smashed
open doors and windows.
Simon Oakley, 45, of Hempnall, Norfolk, was given the longest sentence
of nine years for conspiracy to burgle, having a firearm without a certificate and handling stolen goods.
Another gang member was jailed
for seven-and-a-half years, and three
for six-and-a-half year. Two younger
gang members got five and four years
in a young offenders’ institution.

A BUMPER harvest has helped sweet
berries and fruits to overtake traditional
veg in the supermarket charts.
Punnets of raspberries and blueberries
have seen a 53 per cent jump in sales over
the past year to take them ahead of broccoli and potatoes, Asda’s figures show.
Raspberries are now at number six in the
supermarket’s annual list of top ten fruit
and vegetables sold in 2018 – rising eight
places. Blueberries are up six to seventh –
helped by the fact that their dark blue colouring means they are high in antioxidants

Ben Nevis
claims life of
2nd student
in two weeks
By Eleanor Hayward
and Izzy Ferris
A WOMAN has died after falling 500ft
from the summit of Ben Nevis – the second student to die while climbing Britain’s highest mountain in a fortnight.
The 22-year-old from Bristol University
was climbing with friends on New Year’s
Day when she slipped on icy rocks. The
trip is believed to have been organised
by her university’s mountaineering club.
Three others with the unnamed student became stuck on a ridge and were
airlifted to safety. Lochaber mountain
rescue leader John Stevenson said: ‘It is
hard to say but she would have stood
little or no chance. It is a very rocky
drop too. It would have been a horrific
fall to happen where it did.
‘There is not much snow just now, but
it’s very cold and icy and there is a lot of
black ice about.’ Mr Stevenson praised
the helicopter and rescue teams who
worked to recover the woman’s body
from the 4,400ft mountain in the Scottish
Highlands. The accident is the second
fatality involving a
young climber scaling Ben Nevis in as
many weeks. Cardiff University student
Patrick
Boothroyd, pictured, was killed
when he fell 1,600ft
on December 16.
The 21-year-old’s
climbing partner
Leo Grabowski, 28,
miraculously survived the same plunge
with ‘a few cracked ribs’, and fought in
vain to save his friend’s life.
A Bristol University spokesman confirmed the student’s death and said: ‘Our
hearts go out to the family and friends
of this student. This tragic accident will
be deeply felt across our community,
and we will make sure we have support
available to all those affected.’
n Mountain rescue volunteers have
warned of the growing danger of ‘hapless’ walkers after enduring their busiest ever year in 2018.
Teams in the Lake District were called
out to 654 stranded walkers last year –
an increase from 627 in 2017.
Richard Warren, chairman of the
Lake District Search and Mountain
Rescue Association, said some 180 calls
could have been avoided. ‘We’ll always
go out for people who need us,’ he
said. ‘But we’re desperately trying to
reduce those avoidables.’ Amateurs
typically got lost due to ‘little or no
preparation, no understanding of
navigation, no map, compass [or]
torch’, he said.
Shoppers say bye-bye to broccoli
as fruits and berries edge out veg
are also likely to have contributed to the
shift in sales.
Bananas remain the supermarket’s top
sellers, ahead of red grapes in second and
strawberries in third. Behind them to complete the top ten are clementines, cucumbers, raspberries, blueberries, Gala apples,
white potatoes and green grapes.
The rise of the berry has been bad news
for broccoli, which falls to 11th. Tomatoes
are 12th and mushrooms 13th.
Asda’s produce technical director Ian Har-
rison said: ‘2018 was a renaissance year for
berries, which were graced with an incredible season thanks to British growers making the most of the sunshine to produce
quality, sweet fruit. As our love for berries
continues to grow, we’re working with our
growers to develop new varieties that match
changing tastes and diets.’
With customers becoming increasingly
experimental – and more aware of the benefits blue food offers – Asda predicts a resurgence of blue and purple fruit and veg. While
blueberries are already flying off shelves, the
chain expects strong sales for plums, blackcurrants, blackberries, purple carrots and
elderberries. Mr Harrison claimed hybrid
produce is also becoming more popular,
with the likes of pluots – a cross between
plums and apricots – winning strong sales.
He said: ‘When it comes to fruit, we’re a
nation where “the sweeter, the better”.
We’re investigating a number of delicious
new varieties of grapes, stone fruit and berries to deliver the perfect fruit.’

Four years’ jail for boss
who stole £1m from his DAY
firm to fund gambling
January 3, 2019
ON THIS
FROM THE DAILY MAIL ARCHIVE
A FINANCE director who stole
£1million from his firm to fund his
gambling addiction was jailed for
four years yesterday.
Steven Girling, 36, helped himself to
cash from his employer as if he had
been given the keys ‘to a sweet shop’,
Norwich Crown Court heard.
The married father-of-two and his wife,
Rashael, 41, lived like millionaires, drinking
champagne in five-star hotels in Dubai and
By Tom Witherow
entertaining friends with hospitality tickets
at races including Royal Ascot, the Derby
and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
He was betting up to £50,000 a day online
on slot machines and roulette for more than
three years, he claimed.
But the money was stolen from his
employer, Premier Education Group, and
Girling covered his tracks by doctoring
their spreadsheets. He was encouraged to
keep betting with a string of tickets and
holidays as part of the bookmakers’ VIP
schemes. His addictive behaviour was never
questioned by the three companies he gambled with despite it being ‘clear’ he was
addicted, he claims.
Premier, which supplies physical education and performing arts teachers to
schools, is now suing the gambling companies to recoup the losses.
Prosecutor Martin Ivory said: ‘If you like
sweeties you only have a few,
but if you have the key to the
shop, you have more. He had
an addictive personality and
he tailored his thefts to his
addiction.’
John Farmer, defending, said
Girling had repaid £112,000
and would return more from
the sale of his house.
Girling, from Costessey, near
Norwich, stole the cash
between May 2014 and October 2017. He paid the money
into his own account, pretending that he was a supplier of
the company. He also altered
Day at the races: Steven

spreadsheets to cover his
tracks so that his thefts went
undiscovered even after three
independent audits.
Speaking before being sentenced, Girling said he was
ashamed by his behaviour. ‘By
feeding my addiction I thought
I was making myself happy, but
it was destroying me,’ he said.
His case has been reported
to the Gambling Commission.
Judge Stephen Holt said
Girling was a trusted employee
who stole cash to fund his gambling and ‘spend freely on himself and his family’.
He lied to his wife about how
their lifestyle was funded and
she is standing by him.

the work, life’s work and beliefs and

Overfeeding your dog
cuts 2 years off its life
Plump pooches of all breeds face soaring health risks
Mars Petcare, found being overweight made illnesses such as
arthritis more painful, meaning pets
may have to be put down sooner.
The study, published in the
Journal of Veterinary Internal
Medicine, is based on vets’ records
from the US for middle-aged dogs
between 1994 and 2015.
The dogs were evaluated and
graded based on weight. Of the
50,787 dogs in the study, 32,449
were considered overweight.
Small dogs were most likely to
see their lives cut short if they

THOSE aiming to lose some
weight in the new year might
want to think about putting
Fido on a diet too.
Heavy lifting:
More than half
of UK dogs are
overweight
Overweight pet dogs die around
two years earlier than their slimmer
counterparts, a study has found.
Researchers tracked more than 50,000
dogs from 12 popular breeds over two
decades to see how their weight
affected their health and found it
affected life expectancy for every breed,
from shih tzus to golden retrievers.
The future is bleakest for overweight
Yorkshire terriers. They died two-anda-half years earlier than normal-weight
counterparts. German shepherds fared
best, but still died five months earlier
than expected if they were overfed.
Researchers say fat dogs, like humans,
are at greater risk from cancer, high
blood pressure and heart and kidney
problems. Owners are advised to weigh
their pets, make sure they get enough
exercise and stop feeding them treats
from the kitchen table.
The study’s co-author, Professor
Alex German, of the University of Owners are often unaware that
Liverpool, said: ‘For many owners, their dog is overweight, and many
giving food, particularly tasty may not realise the impact that it
table scraps and tidbits, is the way can have on health.’
It is estimated that 59 per cent of
we show affection for our pets.
‘A long and
healthy life’
dogs in Britain are overweight or
obese, with vets urging owners to
watch their pets’ weight.
The researchers, including nutritionists from pet food company
were overweight, with chihuahuas
and pomeranians losing around
two years. Being fat also reduced
the lifespans of American cocker
spaniels, beagles, dachshunds,
boxers and pit bulls. The largest
breeds in the study, including labrador retrievers, saw their lives
reduced by less than a year.
The authors said: ‘Even in the
breeds for which the effect was
least pronounced, such shortening
is important because most owners
would wish to ensure that their
dog lives a long and healthy life.’
15,000 a day
murdered at
height of the
Holocaust
By Colin Fernandez
Science Correspondent
A QUARTER of the six million
victims of the Holocaust were
murdered in just three months,
according to research.
At its height, at least 15,000 a
day were being killed in three
Polish death camps, it found.
The true scale of the programme, codenamed Operation Reinhard – a key part of
the Nazi plan to rid Europe of
Jews – was far worse than previously thought, say researchers. They identified a ‘phase of
hyperintense killing’ in August,
September and October 1942
when more than 1.47 million
Jews died in gas chambers.
Professor Lewi Stone, of Tel
Aviv University, said he believed
the murder would have continued at this pace but it
tapered off in November 1942
because there were few Jewish victims left alive to kill in
Poland. The rate of killing was
almost twice that of the 1994
Rwanda genocide which
claimed about 8,000 lives a day.
Professor Stone used railway
transportation records to
reach his conclusions. He
said his study highlighted the
Holocaust’s ‘singularly violent
character – even compared to
other more recent genocides’.

Here was no moon that
night, and as waves shuddered against the ship’s bow,
the men on deck strained
eagerly to catch a glimpse of
home through the darkness and
crashing spray.
Almost 300 exhausted naval veterans of the
recently-ended World War I had boarded the
Admiralty steam yacht Iolaire, which was at
last taking them back to their families.
Many had endured U-boat attacks, and titanic
battles against the Imperial German Navy.
Some had served on Arctic and Atlantic
convoys, others on ships sinking and under fire
in the Mediterranean, or waiting offshore during
the catastrophic Gallipoli campaign.
others had seen service in the decisive Battle
of Jutland off the coast of Denmark, in which
the British fleet lost nearly 7,000 men.
Miraculously, all had survived the bloody
carnage of the past four years to hear peace
declared, and were on the final leg of their
journey home — from the Scottish mainland to
the island port of Stornaway on Lewis, gateway
to the Western Isles.
Their loved ones were waiting on shore, almost
within touch, and the men could all but smell
the stews and taste the whisky awaiting them.
It was Hogmanay, and the bunting was out to
welcome them back.
They started collecting their kitbags, expecting to be at Stornaway pier in minutes. one had
an engagement ring in his trouser pocket
intending to present it to his sweetheart.
But the Iolaire never made it to the pier. Just
before 2am on January 1, 1919, the vessel struck
undersea rocks known as the Beasts of Holm.
There was a sickening, metallic roar as she
rose up and heeled over to her side. Many
thought they’d been hit by a torpedo. Around
50 or 60 men jumped into the sea or slid from
the sloping deck and perished in the churning
cold waters below as waves thundered and
broke over the ship. The holed yacht was snared
on the rocks at the mercy of the towering sea.
Those on board could see nothing in the blackness, but the certainty of death.
The sinking of the Iolaire on New Year’s Day
1919, was one of Britain’s worst peacetime
tragedies. The death toll was
officially put at 205, of whom 181
were islanders — although The
Darkest Dawn, a new forensically
researched and deeply moving
book with a foreword by Prince
Charles, who laid a wreath at the
tragedy’s centenary on Tuesday —
puts the figure at 201.
B
efore they had boarded
across the water at the
Kyle of Lochalsh, the
excitement had been
palpable — hundreds of excited
servicemen packing the quayside
in high spirits, taking a sly dram
and engaging in boisterous horseplay; many were neighbours who
hadn’t seen each other for years.
All had presents for their family
and friends, and were longing for
homely reunions.
It had been a long, hard journey
already for the men of Lewis and
Harris via the Highland railway
which, fatally, had been running
late, meaning they missed the regular steam-ferry, the SS Sheila,
which could sail at 18 knots.
The royal Navy ordered the
much slower Iolaire from across
the water at Stornaway to ferry
the latecomers instead. The Sheila
was capable of out-running most
gales; its back-up was not.
The Iolaire, a luxury yacht before
the war, had been used by the Navy
in anti-submarine and patrol operations, but could barely make
12 knots. When she arrived in Kyle
her Master, Commander richard
Mason, expressed concern that
she was kitted out with only two
lifeboats and lifejackets for 80.
even more worrying, she had
never sailed into Stornoway
harbour at night, a tricky
manoeuvre even in daylight. After
She was packed with troops who had survived
the Great War. But when the Iolaire was just
yards from the sanctuary of home, tragedy
struck in front of their horrified families.

two late-running trains arrived
with more demobbed men, the
Kyle commander ordered 284 servicemen up the gangplank.
The Iolaire left at 9.30pm. Just 12
miles out of Stornoway Harbour
the weather turned nasty.
A few hours later, as the force 10
gale took hold, the crew of a local
fishing boat watched in horror as
the Iolaire failed to change course
to make harbour, instead carrying
on full steam ahead into the pitchblack midwinter night — and onto
the jagged rocks.
The Iolaire’s lights failed after
she hit and the men clinging to the
railings could feel her break apart
beneath their feet.
Crew member ernie Adams, a
fireman who had been stoking the
boilers, scrambled up on deck.
‘The waves were rolling in mountains high, dashing her [the Iolaire]
down on the rocks and we could
scarcely stand,’ he said.
Most of the men who jumped had
no chance. The demobbed sailors
were wearing uniforms and heavy
boots. Many had never learned to
swim. In the seething water around
the Beasts, they drowned or were
dashed against the rocks. The
howling gale and thunderous waves
meant the men could hear no lifesaving orders, even if there were
any. The ship was effectively under
no one’s command, without the
power or equipment to save lives.
When, finally, the flares went up,
they showed the vessel’s stern was
just half a dozen yards from a ledge
of rocks leading to the safety of the
shore. A dozen or so men summoned
the courage to leap. Some escaped
and scrambled up to safety. others
were sucked down by the undertow.
Donald Macdonald, from Cromore,
later recounted how the terror was
so much worse than war: ‘The
scene was terrible to behold . . . the
waves descended in a mighty cataract into the churning, boiling,
spuming depths below.
‘We were used to mines, torpedoes and shell fire, but this struck
fear in our hearts. We knew we
were trapped, as no lifeboat could
live in that maelstrom. The most
powerful swimmer would be a toy.
We would be dashed to pieces,
quartered and torn asunder by the
piercing, knife-like crags.’
It wasn’t only the rocks. Some

THE SHIP’S WRECK
— AND ROCKS IT HIT
THE HERO WHO
SAVED 40 LIVES
ship behind him. At one point he
disappeared beneath the water to
the despair of those watching, but
he then came up again.
When he reached shore he
secured another stronger rope to
the rocks, and some 40 men
escaped along the lifeline. donald
Murray was one who made it
across. He was hardly ashore
when the ship suddenly shifted,
yanking the rope tight and
catapulting the men who were
still on it to their deaths.
The Iolaire’s back had bro­
ken and, with a roar, she
slipped off the rock and went
under. There was an explo­
sion as the boiler appeared to
blow and the funnel col­
lapsed. Everyone on the boat
— many trapped in the lower
deck saloon — was plunged
below the waves.
donald Morrison, of
Knockaird, a stocky 18­year­
old, was about to head across
the rope when the ship went
down. ‘I don’t know if I went to
the bottom of the sea,’ he said. ‘I
was struggling in the water, when
a rope came into my hand and I
got to the riggings and then up
the mast as far as I could climb.’
He was picked up alive eight
hours later still clinging with bloody
and frost­bitten fingers, the only
sailor from the Iolaire to come
ashore alive at Stornoway pier.
His brother Angus was not so
lucky. The pair had met up in Kyle,
the mainland departure point. Of
MING
who tried to swim to shore were
lacerated by fragments of twisted
and jagged metal and splintered
wood from the breaking ship.
Macdonald hoped to jump into
the sea to join one of two lifeboats
the men launched on the lee side.
He was too late; it was full.
‘Thanks goodness I missed it by
seconds,’ he said later. ‘I watched
it churning and swirling and in an
instant down it went.’
He chose not to jump for the
second lifeboat after that, and
watched it ‘as a mighty backwave
seemed to fill the boat. It seemed
to glide up to their shoulders, their
heads — and then no more. I could
not see any survivors from any of
the boats’.
Three men who climbed one of
the Iolaire’s masts perished when
the gale toppled the vessel. Every­
one on board seemed doomed —
until a Navy carpenter heading
home to Lewis on leave committed
an act of heart­stopping heroism.
John Finlay Macleod, a man
intimately familiar with the coast­
line and even the pattern of the
waves, launched himself into the
sea hauling a rope attached to the
the 25 brothers on board, only one
set — George and Murdo Macarthur
of Cromore — survived. Of one set
of three brothers on board, Angus
and John Macphail survived, but
Norman did not.
donald Macleod swam ashore,
but on finding his brother, Malcolm,
had not made it, turned back to
look for him. Both perished.
donald Macaskill, travelling with
his older brother, duncan, managed
to grab one of the lifebelts, but
gave it to his brother because he
was the stronger swimmer. duncan
swam to the shore with donald
hanging on to his back for most of
the way, but donald was swept
away. Bodies were washed up at
Sandwick, along with gift­wrapped
presents for their children.
Women and children, mothers
and grandparents, had decorations
up ready to welcome their men
home. One excited mother had
joked: ‘See and don’t come home
without Murdo now!’ before she
waved off her daughter who was
heading to the quayside to meet
her brother Murdo Maclain. She
was to wait in vain.
As the news spread, islanders
trudged through the rain to look
for the survivors — and the dead.
Four­year veteran John Macaskill’s
body was found up against the cem­
etery wall across the road from his
own house. The local bard Murdo
Macfarlane said: ‘He was washed up
almost on his own doorstep after
going through a whole war.’
Kenneth Macphail, 24, a crofter
and fisherman before the war, had
been the sole survivor of the armed
merchantman SS Cambric, torpe­
doed off Gibraltar in 1917.
He had spent 36 hours in the sea
until washed ashore in Algeria.
After the sinking of the Ioliare,
Macphail’s brother Angus spent
several days working from a rowing
boat over the wreck, using grap­
pling irons in a desperate search
for the bodies of his brother and
two other relatives.
Eventually, Angus recovered
Kenneth’s corpse and was aston­
ished to find his hands were stuffed
firmly into his pockets. Angus
believed that, after the trauma of
surviving the previous sinking,
Kenneth had made no attempt to
save himself, but simply resigned
himself to his fate.
The Lewis roll of Honour records:
‘Pathetic in the extreme it is to
think that this powerful seaman
after so miraculous an escape in
the Mediterranean, perished within
a few feet of his native soil.’
Inevitably, the news of the loss of
the Iolaire with so many lives was a
devastating blow to the nation’s
morale after four years of war.
The Scotsman reported: ‘The
villages of Lewis are like places of
the dead. The homes of the island
are full of lamentation — grief that
cannot be comforted. Scarcely a
family has escaped the loss of a
near­blood relative. Many have had
sorrow heaped upon sorrow.’
Malcolm Macdonald, author of
The darkest dawn (along with
donald John MacLeod), was
named after his grandfather whose
body was among many never
found. But as a boy, Malcolm was
not told what had happened — so
traumatised were islanders by the
disaster that many refused to
speak of it for decades.
‘We were told nothing. We knew
that he’d been killed in the war, but
we didn’t realise it was so close to
home,’ he says. ‘What I thought
when I found out was: “Why didn’t
they tell us?” But it’s only now I’m
realising it was the same all over the
island, in every village from Tolsta
to Ness to Uig. They all reacted the
same.’ A public inquiry in February
found that, despite rumours, drink

Disaster: The Iolaire before
the war and (right) wrecked
off Stornoway. Inset, the
brave John Finlay Macleod
was not held to have been a factor
in the sinking at any point.
The official naval investigation
into the disaster was downgraded
immediately from a court martial
to a Court of Inquiry, due to the
Navy’s fear that the findings of a
court martial might imply blame
was being accepted by them.
It was held in private, on January
8, 1919 — and the findings were not
released to the public until 1970.
They ruled that because no
officers on board had survived, ‘no
opinion can be given as to whether
blame is attributable to anyone in
the matter’. Later, disaster meas­
ures were put in place by the gov­
ernment, including mandatory life­
boats and life­saving equipment.
In an act of incredible insensitiv­
ity, the Admiralty put the wreck of
the Iolaire up for sale only 15 days
after the disaster, appalling the
islanders as there were still more
than 80 bodies unaccounted for.
The impact of the calamity
continued for generations as
families grieved and orphaned
siblings were split up, to be fos­
tered by relatives and strangers.
The Stornoway Gazette reported:
‘Language cannot express the
anguish, the desolation, the despair
which this awful catastrophe has
inflicted. One thinks of the wide
circle of blood relations affected by
the loss of even one of the gallant
lads, and imagination sees those
circles multiplied by the number of
the dead, overlapping and overlap­
ping each other till the whole
island — every hearth and home —
is shrouded in deepest gloom.’
M
ANy who made it
home suffered ‘survi­
vor’s guilt’ and could
not settle to peace­
time island life. The niece of Murdo
Stewart said: ‘He couldn’t wait to
get away. He felt guilty walking
around the village. He felt: “Why
did we survive?” ’
Fourteen survivors emigrated.
Alexander Mackenzie, from
Leurbost, became a harbour
master in Australia. Another, Mal­
colm Macdonald, became a fitter
in Canada but never wrote home.
donald Macdonald, from Cromore
was buried in Canada with an
anchor on his grave. In 1959, donald
Macphail, speaking on Gaelic radio,
recalled the moment a friend of his
found the body of his own son: ‘He
was so handsome that I could have
said he was not dead at all.
‘His father went on his knees
beside him and began to take
letters from his son’s pockets. The
tears were splashing on the body of
his son. It is the most heart­rend­
ing sight I’ve ever seen.’
The young man was roderick
Murray, 19, and the letters pulled
from his pocket by his father had
been written in his own hand to his
son. One said: ‘We are missing you
very much but we hope that you will
not be very long in coming home . . .’

Woman ‘battered with stiletto’
lost so much blood that mother
thought she’d been murdered
Daily Mail Reporter
By James Tozer
A WOMAN attacked in the street after
a row over a bag of chips was left with
such gruesome injuries that her mother
thought she had been murdered.
Jade Daniels, 31, is thought to have
been attacked with a stiletto shoe, leaving her with a broken jaw and requiring
14 stitches.
The horrific incident – the latest example of
spiralling violence in Wild West Britain – took
place in the early hours of New Year’s Eve. Miss
Daniels’ mother, Tracay Jones, found her in her
blood-soaked bed after her daughters’ housemate raised the alarm.
‘We think she managed to crawl home and
then passed out,’ Mrs Jones said.

Her mother said: ‘She’s covered
in bruises – she’s such a little thing
as she’s only 4ft 11in and weighs
about eight stone. She’s very
scared and emotional.’
A North Wales Police spokesman
confirmed the force was investigating a ‘serious assault’.
A THIRD of the electricity generated in the UK last year was
from renewable sources, a
report shows.
Wind farms were the biggest
contributor with 17 per cent of
the total, while solar generated 4 per cent and burning
biomass a further 11 per cent.
With nuclear power supplying
just under a fifth of the total,
low carbon sources accounted
for a record 53 per cent of UK
electricity generation in 2018.
The amount coming from coal,
the most polluting fossil fuel,
fell to a record low of 5 per cent
– despite fears of a resurgence
in the face of high wholesale
gas prices. Gas itself accounted
for almost 40 per cent.
However, the overall amount
generated fell to the lowest
level since 1994, the analysis of
Government and industry data
by climate and energy website
Carbon Brief reveals.
It comes as Britain’s dependence on imports grows, with 22
per cent of electricity forecast
to be imported by 2025, compared with 6 per cent now.
The amount of electricity generated per person also fell – to
the lowest level since 1984 –
partly due to lower consumption because of more energyefficient homes and industry.

Her five-month-old daughter, Maly,
suffered a lung infection and nearly
died on Christmas Day. ‘We thought
we were going to lose her,’ says Emma.
‘I’ve never been so scared in my life.’
As Maly’s condition worsened, she
was taken by ambulance, with sirens
blaring, from Emma’s Surrey home
to the critical care unit at the Royal
London Hospital in Whitechapel in
the East End.
‘She couldn’t breathe and was in
an incubator,’ reveals Emma, who
became friends with Kate Middleton
when they were pupils at Downe

‘Maly was attached to tubes and I

is planning a double
celebration on March 29
— for not only is it
brexit day, but it’s also
his birthday. Lord
Tebbit will turn 88 on
the historic day — the
same day that another
ardent brexiteer, Priti
Patel, will turn 47.
‘i couldn’t ask for a
better birthday present,’
chuckles the former
Conservative cabinet
minister, who was once
dubbed ‘the Chingford
Skinhead’. ‘We might
even have a glass
together at Westminster
to celebrate!’
‘First class’ Lord Melchett’s
Eddie is plane will reveals his
shameless ... plan to marry
FORMULA One tycoon Eddie
Jordan has revealed how he
scammed airlines by buying an
economy ticket and then flying
first class.
‘The trick was to be last on to
the plane, or near enough,’
explains Jordan, who presents
motor-racing coverage for
Channel 4.
‘I’d dress better than I normally
dress . . . I’d walk on, turn left and
have a good scan to see who’s
sitting down.
‘I don’t put my bag up, I put it
on a seat [in first class] that’s
empty, then walk up and down.’
If the bag wasn’t moved, he
claimed the seat. The 70-year-old
adds: ‘I still do it — great fun.’
What a cheek: Jordan has a
reputed fortune of £370 million.
ECO peer Peter Melchett, who died
last summer at the age of 70,
famously declined to marry his
companion of 45 years, Cassandra
‘Cass’ Wedd, to ensure that his title
would expire with him, rather than
pass to their son, Jay.
However, it appears that Lord
Melchett, who became a Labour
minister, was reconsidering his
antipathy to marriage.
For I can disclose that the Old
Etonian drew up a will five months
before his death in which he stated
unequivocally: ‘I am expecting to
marry Cassandra Nora Mary Wedd.’
Alas, it was not to be. But he did
leave her £486,000 in his will — their
880-acre Norfolk farm was already in
Jay’s hands.
The family name was, of course,
immortalised by Stephen Fry as
blundering General Melchett in the
classic Eighties series Blackadder
Goes Forth.

IT’S not just the Duchess of Sussex who sets
fashion trends. After
Princess Eugenie was
pictured several times
wearing a £160 striped
Whistles dress (left),
it became so popular
that the High Street
chain sold out.
Now, Asda has come
up with a strikingly
similar version of the
navy, white and red
frock for its fashion
range, George (inset).
And, typically for the
supermarket giant —
whose slogan is ‘save
money, live better’ —
it’s a bargain at £20.

How to boost
your sex life,
sleep better
and lose weight
in just 30 days
Only one problem ... it means this
UST imagine there was a simple
way you could transform your life
in just 30 days, from losing weight
to looking younger, improving
your energy levels and mental
outlook, sleeping better and even enjoying a more satisfying love life.
Well, there is. Of course, as with
everything, there is a small price to pay.
In this case it’s alcohol, but as I realised
myself when I stopped drinking for
good, it’s worth the sacrifice of giving
up your favourite tipple, whether that’s
gin and tonic, glasses of sauvignon
blanc — or red wine, as it was for me.
Here are all the day-by-day reasons
why stopping drinking for a month is
an experiment definitely worth trying
. . . and how to get through it.
J
by Annie Grace
DAY ONE:
The downward spiral
IT’S lIkely that you spent the earlier
part of this week enjoying a tipple or
two, especially if you’ve been planning
a dry January. But have you ever
wondered why nothing makes you feel
as good as that first glass?
The reason is that wine artificially
stimulates an area of the brain called
the nucleus accumbens. This controls
the output of dopamine, responsible
for desire and craving, and serotonin,
which is responsible for feelings of
satiety and inhibition.
In a healthy brain there is a delicate
balance between the two, but alcohol
throws that balance out. The first
glass causes lots of dopamine to be
released into your system, making
you want more of whatever gave you
that pleasure.
But at the same time, because the
pleasure centre of your brain has been
artificially stimulated, the brain seeks
to regain the correct balance. To
achieve this it sends out a chemical
‘downer’ called dynorphin, which
suppresses feelings of euphoria — so
as the effects of that first glass wear

Reset your body clock with natural sleep aids
TOO many late nights over Christmas
and New Year can leave our body
clocks struggling to get back into the
daily routine of waking up early for
work or the school run. According to
the Sleep Health Foundation, a third
of us suffer from mild insomnia, so it’s
important to introduce simple sleep
remedies to make sure you’re not
tossing and turning all night. One natural remedy is magnesium, a mineral
used in the body to regulate blood
pressure, aid digestion and relax muscles, among other things. A warm
bath sprinkled with Westlab’s Magnesium Flakes should have you feeling
sleepy in just 20 minutes (£8.99,
hollandandbarrett.com). You can also
try misting your pillow and bed with
Deep Sleep Pillow Spray by This Works

with natural oils that promote relaxation including lavender, vetiver and
wild camomile, it also smells divine!

off, your sense of wellbeing falls to below where it
was when you began drinking.
But the dopamine is still working, making you
crave what made you feel good. The answer?
Another glass of wine, of course, which sets the
cycle going once more. But there are everdecreasing results.
As the body tries to regain its balance, it releases
adrenaline and cortisol — the so-called ‘stress’
hormone. So you now have to cross an even bigger
gap to get above that baseline of pleasure. And this
surfeit of stress hormones outlasts the good
feelings, which is why you often wake feeling
anxious after a night out.
DAY TWO: Remember, ANY
alcohol is harmful
If you need some motivation for the dry days
ahead, consider the ground-breaking study reported
in The Lancet last year that stated there is no safe
level of drinking. Even a single drink, even on
occasion, is detrimental to health. Any reduction in
alcohol consumption lowers your risk for cancer.
DAY THREE: Alcohol actually
tastes vile
Lampshade, £55,
base, £140,
pooky.com
MAny people say they drink because they like the
taste of their favourite alcohol. But if you think
back to your first experience of alcohol, the chances
are you hated it. you just forced yourself to acquire
a taste for it because those around you told you it
was a good thing.
There is a growing body of evidence that if alcohol didn’t make us drunk, we wouldn’t drink it.
Certainly neat ethanol — which is what alcohol is
— doesn’t taste good at all.
DAY FOUR: Flip your mindset
When I gave up
alcohol I talked
about it endlessly
and everyone pitied
my husband for
having to put up with
me. My advice now?
Keep the sharing
to a minimum
IT MAy take a week or longer for your body to
rebalance after you stop drinking.
During that time you could experience withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, irritability
and anxiety. What helped me get
through was flipping my mindset. Instead of seeing these rest of your life. Just have that
symptoms as punishment for a drink next month.

signs of progress that my body
was healing itself.

DAY FIVE: Sleep
better
A n yo n E w h o h a s o v e rindulged knows that a terrible
night’s sleep inevitably follows.
In fact, any alcohol, even just a
glass of wine or beer, will disrupt
sleep because it produces the
same chemical effects to a
greater or lesser degree.
The culprits are the adrenaline
and cortisol produced to help your
body regain its chemical balance.
unfortunately for sleep, these
stimulants last longer than the
depressive effects of alcohol.
The chemical disruption to
your brain is why you wake up
after five hours of deep sleep and
can’t get back to sleep.
The good news is, most people
find they sleep better than ever
after the fifth alcohol-free night.
DAY SIX: Don’t change
everything at once

that as you’re taking a break
from alcohol, you may as well
quit sugar and start running five

too many changes rarely works

other goals when your 30 days
is over.
DAY SEVEN:
Remember it’s just an
experiment

WELL done, you’ve gone a week
without a drink! But it may not
feel like such an achievement if
you’re feeling resentful that you
can’t enjoy your favourite tipple.
Remind yourself that it’s just an
experiment to see how you feel
after a month without alcohol.
you’re not banning it for the
DAYS EIGHT AND
NINE: Stick to your
guns but don’t become
a no-booze bore
fRIEnDS who are still drinking
will try to tempt you. The
social pressures can be very
hard to tackle.
If you don’t want to tell the
truth, try ‘I’ve got a big meeting
tomorrow and I want to stay
clear-headed’, or ‘I’ve got to
drive tonight so I can’t drink’.
nobody wants to feel you’re
judging them for having a drink.
When I gave up alcohol, to begin
with I was an antialcohol evangelist, talking about the benefits
at every opportunity, and
everyone pitied my husband for
having to put up with me. I’ve
learnt it’s better to keep the
sharing to a minimum.
DAY TEN: Dealing with
sugar cravings
If you’RE experiencing more
sugar cravings than usual, this is
quite normal when you stop
drinking. Alcoholic drinks contain quite a bit of sugar that
you’re now not getting — and
secondly, like drinking alcohol,
eating sugar produces huge levels of dopamine, so it’s the
obvious alternative if your brain
is seeking out a substitute
dopamine hit.
DAY 11: Distraction
youR subconscious is childlike
— it won’t stop pestering if it
thinks there’s a chance you’ll
give in. If you’re used to holding
a glass of wine in your hand during a night out, carry on holding
a glass when you’re being social
— just fill it with tonic water or
lemonade. often something as
simple as that is enough to satisfy your subconscious toddler.
DAY 12: Ask the
questions
MAKIng small talk can be
excruciating without a drink to
oil our social wheels. But an
easy way to engage people without feeling awkward is to ask
lots of questions. get the other
person talking about themself
and it won’t feel like hard work.
DAY 13: Embrace the
free time
If DRInKIng used to be a
major activity for you, you may
have more time on your hands.
you risk feeling bored, so make a
list of activities you’ve always
wanted to try and give at least
some of them a go this month.
DAY 14: Be curious
IT HAS been a fortnight now
and perhaps you’re tempted to
have just one glass after a
long week.
The obvious thing is to try to
ignore these feelings. Don’t.
Instead, ask yourself ‘What is it
that I think alcohol will do to
make this moment better?’ Then
ask yourself ‘Is that true?’
you may surprise yourself with
the realisation that a cup of tea
and a biscuit, or relaxing in a
deep bath with a book, will make
you feel just as good.
DAY 15: A bad day
at work
AT SoME point in the month,
it’s highly likely you’ll have a
day at work when you feel under
pressure.
If you handle work stress by
drinking, as I did, then every
time this happens you’ll probably trigger a psychological craving for alcohol. So while your
conscious mind knows you’re
not drinking at the moment,
your subconscious won’t have
got the memo.
you have to find another way
to reduce stress. Many studies
have shown exercise is a great
way to do this. once those
endorphins are released, the
stress and cravings subside.
DAY 16: Mental
exercise works too
MInDfuLnESS and meditation
are as effective as physical
exercise for reducing stress.
DAY 17: No winter
snuffles
youR immune system is getting
a boost if you’re not drinking.
Alcohol suppresses the immune
system by disrupting production
of cytokines, which alert our
bodies to harmful intruders. It
also has an impact on production
of the white blood cells that go
on to fight infection.
DAY 18: Pernicious
parenting messages
IT’S no wonder 40 per cent of
women think they need a drink
to handle being a parent when
you consider all the messages
we’re bombarded with that associate parenting with alcohol.
It could be blogging mums
joking about gin at the end of
the day, or jokey fridge magnets
or internet memes with messages like: ‘Dear children, you
whine, I wine.’
But it’s a stupid message
when you think about it. of
course drinking doesn’t make
parenting easier. It can only
make it harder.
DAY 19: Your skinny
jeans fit again
IT’S common knowledge that
alcohol is surprisingly high in
calories — a large glass of white
wine is like eating an ice-cream
and a pint of beer is the same as
a large slice of pizza.
But what you may not know is
that because alcohol is easily
absorbed, it is more quickly
stored as fat than the excess cal-

loss of collagen and elasticity,
but your face is more likely to look
red and swollen because alcohol
is a vasodilator — it expands
blood vessels.
lastly, the most obvious difference is that alcohol is also a major
source of dehydration, contributing to dry, scaly and cracked skin.
DAY 25: Thank
your body
todAY I want you to take a
minute just to celebrate the
incredible miracle that is you!
DAY 26: Sharper
emotions
WHen you’ve been drinking you
feel a bit fuzzy and numb, whether
it’s a night out, dinner with your
partner or just watching tV. relish the emotional highs and lows
of not drinking.
DAY 27: Enjoy a
healthier heart
remInd yourself that when
you’re not drinking it’s much
healthier for your heart.
drinking large amounts, even on
rare occasions, can affect the electrical system that regulates your
heartbeat. this may lead the heart
to not beat hard enough, which
can cause blood to pool and form
clots, or beat too fast, which
doesn’t allow the chambers to fill
with blood properly.
studies have shown that alcohol
weakens the heart muscle so it
sags and stretches, making it
impossible for it to contract effectively. over time this means it
can’t effectively transport enough
oxygen to organs and tissues.
ories from sugar, carbohydrates,
protein or even fat itself. It also
affects weight gain in another way,
contributing to very low blood
sugar levels, which can lead to
eating lots of high-calorie foods to
compensate.
In other words, because your
liver is focused on detoxifying
alcohol, it doesn’t properly process
the food you eat or the energy
stores in your muscles into fuel for
the body, so your blood sugar
levels fall and hunger sets in.
DAY 20: The power
of gratitude
It sounds cheesy but if you
feel that life is less interesting
without a drink in the evening or
at the weekend, keeping a ‘gratitude diary’ of things you are
thankful for really does help
remind you of all the many positives in your life.
DAY 21: Forget
willpower
You’re into the third week
without drinking and, while you
feel and look healthier, the novelty
has well and truly worn off. don’t
try to rely on sheer willpower to
get you through the last ten days.
new research suggests this is a
finite resource, not a muscle that
can be built up.
Instead, write down a few facts
about alcohol that you know are
true — such as how you energetic
you feel without drinking — and
keep them in your wallet or mobile
phone case, to pull out when you
feel you might give in.
Calming the dissonance in your
mind works better than trying to
be gritty about getting through.
DAY 22: Enjoy
better sex
You may find you not only have
more energy when you’re not
drinking, but a spring in your step
in other ways.
drinking as few as two alcoholic
drinks a day has been found to
reduce testosterone levels not
only in men but in women too.
Furthermore, because alcohol is
a depressant, it affects libido by
interfering with the parts of the
nervous system that are essential
for arousal and orgasm, including
circulation and the sensitivity of
nerve endings. As the amount of
alcohol in the body increases, the
brain becomes less able to sense
sexual stimulation.
don’t just take my word for it.
I have surveyed hundreds of
people who have experimented
with going alcohol-free and the
truth is, sober sex is better sex.
Your brain is receiving the full,
unimpeded information from your
senses. You are literally more in
touch with your body when you’re
not drinking. the signals that
your nerves send are more powerful — which means orgasms are
stronger and it’s easier to have
one (or many)!
DAY 23: What’s fun?
We AssoCIAte alcohol with
celebration and fun, but think
back to the last time you had
fun drinking. think about when
the fun began. the chances are
i t was actually before you
started drinking.
Because I usually drank after
work, my fun began the minute I
walked out of the office. It was
actually anticipation of the weekend ahead that gave me pleasure,
not the wine.
DAY 24: Looking
younger
HopeFullY by now you can see
a difference in the mirror. Without
alcohol you truly do look different.
Alcohol not only causes premature
DAY 28:
You’re nearly there
But because you’ve done so well
so far, it’s tempting to give in a few
days early. try visualisation to
help you get to the finish. For
example, it’s easier not drinking if
you visualise saying no to a glass
of wine before you go out.
DAY 29: Tough love
Your month is nearly up, so
now is the time to start thinking
about the future. think back to
why you wanted to do this in the
first place and what has improved
for you in the past month,
whether it’s that you’re sleeping
better or your clothes feel looser,
for instance.
When do you particularly miss
having a drink? do you really need
to start all over again?

Blind date
She’s
lovely, but
she’s not
my type
I could see
romance
happening
between us
vEry week, we send a
couple out on a blind date.
This time, Orson Nurse,
35, had lunch at rump
and Wade restaurant in
Stevenage, Hertfordshire, with
Adwoa date­Bah, 39.
E
and, while I’ve gone on the
occasional date, I haven’t yet
found my soulmate.
I’m looking for a lady who can
make me laugh and who doesn’t
take herself too seriously, but she
has to be driven, too. That’s really
important. It’d also be nice to find
someone who is into music and
fashion and loves life like I do.
I don’t really do online dating
any more, as I’m too busy model­
ling for fashion magazines and
working at my day job — together,
they take up a lot of time. Still, I
wasn’t nervous, as I’m used to
meeting people with my job.
When Adwoa walked in, I
thought she was a nice girl, but
quickly saw that the vibe just
wasn’t there between us. Adwoa
is wonderful, but a much quieter
personality — I could see she was
quite nervous, so I tried to make
sure she felt comfortable.
It wasn’t awkward at all, but we
both agreed just to have starters,
rather than anything further.
Neither of us was very hungry.
Orson works in retail and as a part­time
model and lives in Birmingham, while Adwoa
is a marketing executive living in Bedford­
shire. Neither has been married.

OrSON is a really good looking guy — he
told me he’s a part­time model, which, I
have to say, I found a bit intimidating!
In fact, I was really nervous at first, so it’s
lucky that he was friendly and very smiley.
We soon worked out we have quite a few
things in common. We’re both very focused
on our careers, but like entertaining at home,
cooking and spending time with friends and
family, and I thought we shared some similar
values. The conversation was light­hearted
and didn’t feel awkward at all.
We also talked about our backgrounds —
he is from St Kitts in the Caribbean, while
my parents are from Ghana, but he told me
he used to have a Ghanaian girlfriend and
knew how to make some of our traditional
dishes, which was impressive.
I do think there was a little flirting between
us. Honestly, I was attracted to him and
thought there was a possibility of romance
as we seemed to get on well, but he kept
asking me about other dates I’d been on, so
I wasn’t sure if that was his way of letting me
know he was looking for only friendship.
The restaurant was quite old­fashioned, in
a good way, and we both ordered the same
starter of soup.
I dated a lot at university and, in my mid­
20s, I had a few relationships, each lasting a
year or so. But recently things have slowed
down and I haven’t been on that many dates
in the past four years. It’s partly because
I’ve been very busy with my career and
romance took a back seat for a while.
IT’S not always easy to know if you are on the
same page, says Dating Doctor ALANA KIRK . . .
l AT AN appropriate moment, touch your
date lightly on the arm. If they initiate
further contact, they may be flirting.
l IF YOU have to second-guess how
your date feels, perhaps they’re
not making enough effort.
l IF YOU’RE not interested
in meeting again,
it’s OK to say so,
politely but
directly.
OW I’m ready to try again. I’ve
gone on a few online dates and
even went speed­dating. I met
someone who I dated for a
couple of months, but then he got back
together with his previous girlfriend, so that
was that. It was really disappointing.
I even joined salsa classes to broaden my
social circle but, while I learnt some great
moves, there was no one who I wanted to
make a move on me!
All I’m looking for is a humble, safely and he replied, but there
loyal, smart guy who is relatively hasn’t been much since, which is

but in terms of common ground,
there wasn’t much else. Our taste
in music is at opposite ends of

music and Adwoa likes country.
That said, I tried to make sure
conversation flowed. I definitely
felt I led most of the talking as
she came across as quite shy.
After a while, she did relax — I
told her just to try to feel like she
was chatting to a friend.
But there wasn’t any flirting
because I didn’t think we were
right for each other and I would
never want to lead anyone on.
I do think Adwoa probably liked
me in a romantic way, as she said
she’d like to stay in touch. She
kept saying she was trying to read
me, but I think I’m pretty straight­

spirited — a nice compliment. I
tried to give her some positive
messages about herself, too.
As we walked outside, we had a
hug and I told her to take care.
Afterwards, she messaged me,
saying it was really nice to meet.
I thanked her for a lovely date,
but didn’t suggest another. I don’t
think we’d work romantically.
Adwoa is a kind, friendly, lovely
person with a lot to offer. Though
we weren’t a match, she’d make
the right person very happy.

The Microsoft founder is no slouch when
it comes to philanthropy either. The Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation, which he
founded with his wife in 1994, has cut polio
cases by 99 per cent worldwide and revitalised the international push for scientific
solutions to global health problems.
one of these solutions is better access to
contraception for the 220 million women in
developing countries lacking the
information and the means to control their
fertility. It is a long-term goal of the
foundation to reduce the annual 90 million
unintended pregnancies and 50 million
abortions worldwide.
In 2012, the foundation set the ambitious
aim of providing contraception for
120 million more women and girls by 2020,
but now the target is slipping from reach.
To keep the hope alive, the organisation
is upping its contribution to the project by
a quarter, providing an extra £95 million —
and some of that money is being invested
in creating a safe and effective male
contraceptive pill.
This is a challenge that, for decades, has
confounded some of the best scientific
minds in the world.
So far, their efforts have come to nothing,
because where contraception is concerned,
Mother Nature stubbornly thumbs her
nose at sexual equality.
while women have access to a range of
contraceptives — from barrier methods
(female condoms, diaphragms, caps) to
hormonal solutions (the Pill, injections,
rings, patches, implants) and devices such
as the coil — men still have only one safe
method: the condom, which has been
around since the mid-17th century.
The other time-honoured tactic is ­coitus­
interruptus, or the withdrawal technique,
although it is so ineffective, statistically it
hardly counts. Studies suggest a failure rate
of up to 28 per cent, compared with about
0.3 per cent for the Pill.
So a gap in the market exists, and that’s
where the male pill comes in.
But will Gates’s money — £730,000 of
which will go initially to the University of
Dundee — and all the other vast funds
committed to the pursuit of this Holy Grail
of contraception ever deliver?
one thing is for certain: it’s going to take
an awful lot of faith. Not only faith in
science — but faith in men, too. For even if
scientists are successful, critics argue, it
will never be practicable.
The solution, if it does arrive, may be
technological, rather than
pharmaceutical. Incredible as
this sounds, it could involve a
switch implanted in the body to
turn sperm ducts on and off.

Gates, if history is anything to go
by. Two fears have long dogged
the project. The first is the belief
men simply won’t take a contraceptive pill, perhaps out of fear
that it would diminish their masculinity or harm their fertility — or
a stubborn belief that birth control is a woman’s responsibility.
The other is that women would
never fully trust men who said:
‘relax, Darling, I’m on the Pill.’
The Gates Foundation seems
to have put its faith in evidence
from a recent study in the

Official figures indicate that

found to inhibit sperm production in male lab animals. But in
2016, a World Health Organisation trial involving men had to

success in making men temporarily infertile — because of yet
more worrying side-effects.
Nearly a fifth of those taking

Others suffered muscle pain and
skin disorders. Yet the volunteers
were reluctant to stop taking

TO CONSIDER A
IA DIVORCE?
Picture: SHUTTERSTOCK. POSED BY MODELS
HEARTBREAKING
DECISIONS . . .
You vowed to stay together in sickness and
in health. But when your spouse is lost in a
twilight world, more and more of us face a
heartbreaking dilemma, says this top lawyer
and throws cutlery on the floor. I
just can’t live with it. I’m at breaking point.’
Yet despite reaching such a desperate stage, she admitted how
terrible she felt even sitting in my
office. The very idea of seeing a
divorce lawyer seemed to her the
very ultimate betrayal of a man
she had known all her adult life
(she had met him as a teenager
and was now in her late 60s)
Of course, divorce is a huge step
— sweeping with it feelings of
enormous guilt and loss. Then
there are the children. I have seen
clients whose children, already
suffering their own emotional
turmoil, have been horrified that
the parent carer would even
consider abandoning their mother
or father.
Parental responsibilities and
sensitivities add another tangent
to an already impossibly tense
situation. Little wonder that some
of the people who see me never
come back. They soldier on.
Perhaps they have spoken to
friends or family. Or perhaps they
couldn’t silence their conscience.
What happened, they tell them-
selves, to that vow: ‘In sickness
and in health?’
As a divorce lawyer, it is not for
me to make a judgment call — I’m
there to explain the options. But
never to encourage a course
of action.
One distraught client told me
she literally had to get out. Her
life, she said, was — and I’ve never
forgotten this phrase — a living
death. Her husband, who was in
his late 60s and who had been
diagnosed about a year before,
had become very sexual.
He would walk around naked
all the time and see sexual
suggestion and invitation in
routine actions, such as getting
into the shower, or simply wearing
a bath robe.
The situation was clearly intolerable — she could, in theory have
been in danger of rape — though
there was no suggestion he had
forced himself upon her and he
had accepted her rebuttals.
But she couldn’t take the chance
and, at her behest, we had to apply
for an injunction based on his
unreasonable behaviour. As for
the finances, all she wanted was a
fair split — enough so her husband
could be looked after and enough
so that she could have somewhere
to live.
Rosemary Westwell, a former
music teacher, who lives in Cambridgeshire, said she ‘lost’ her husband John when he was diagnosed
with behavioural variant frontotemporal dementia — which
affects the parts of the brain
responsible for social behaviour —
at the age of 46.

has taken early retirement to be
his wife’s full-time carer.
In recent months elaine’s condition has worsened. She is now so
confused that the other week she
didn’t recognise one of her own
children on a family photo.
She has stopped reading and
can’t remember things her husband tells her, such as where they
are heading when they go out.
Occasionally, says Stephen, they
hold hands, but that’s as far as it
goes. The romance and intimacy is
buried, steamrollered by the
marks of the disease.
‘Abandoning elaine is not an
option — even if I could arrange
for her to have full-time care. I
have to stay with this now. But in
committing myself to her life, it is
consuming part of mine with her.’

a tidy sum
hOST of new
products and
professional
tips promise
to help you
clean and refresh your
clothes in a flash —
without washing, ironing or dry-cleaning.
A
From Lidl’s clever new
garment steamer to a hightech ‘dry wash’ spray, we put
them all to the test.
STEAM MACHINE
Lidl Garment Steamer, £49.99
WHAT IS IT? A new upright
clothes steamer (below) with
an extendable stand to hang
clothes while you ‘steam and
freshen. ready to use in 60
seconds, running the steamer
head over the surface of fabric will kill 99.9 per cent of
germs, bacteria and dust
mites, says Lidl, and leave
clothes looking dry cleaned.
ANY GOOD? The machine was
easy to set up. I pegged my
white cotton T-shirt, the
results were impressive with
creases disappearing before
my eyes. The spray worked
equally well on jeans, school
uniform and an evening
dress. One the downside, it’s
pricey and won’t remove
stains or leave clothes
hygienically clean. Great in
an emergency, though. 4/5
THE TUMBLE DRY
Dry Cleaner’s Secret at
Home Dry Cleaner, £10.99/6
cloths from lakeland.co.uk
WHAT IS IT? A cloth impreg-
nated with cleaning fluid that
can spot clean, deodorise and
de-wrinkle dry clean-only
clothes. Use the moist cloth
to rub away small marks and
spillages then place the cloth
and garment in your tumble
dryer on a medium heat for
20 minutes. Clothes should
emerge ready to wear.
ANY GOOD? My lightweight
wool coat smelled musty
after months in my wardrobe,
with marks on the collar and
arms too. The 20-minute
tumble dry infused the coat
with a clean fragrance that
smelled much better than
dry-cleaning fluid, and lasted
a week. Pricy, but handy. 4/5
VODKA SPRITZ
Spritz with cheap vodka
WHAT IS IT? An old theatre
daughter’s crumpled Pe skirt
on the stand and slowly ran
the steamer down the fabric.
Unwanted creases dropped
out immediately and an
attachment can help create
neat pleats. Drawbacks?
Clothes still need spot cleaning — and it takes up quite a
4/5
bit of storage space.
DRY WASH SPRAY
Day 2 dry wash spray,
from £4/75ml from day2.com
WHAT IS IT? A spray-on fresh-
ener (main picture) that
gives clothes a ‘just-washed
fragrance’ and uses ‘stiffening molecules’ and fabric softeners to smooth creases and
wrinkles. Lay the item on a
soft surface or bed. Spray the
garment then smooth the
damp fabric with your hand.
Place on a hanger and 15
minutes later it should look
and smell freshly laundered.
ANY GOOD? Yes! Spritzed
over my son’s discarded
managers’ trick. Turn clothes
inside out and arrange on a
hanger. Fill a spray bottle
with cheap, neat vodka and
spritz the inside of your
clothing liberally (patch test
first for colour fastness and
staining). Allow to dry. The
alcohol should kill any odorous bacteria and then evaporate rapidly to leave behind a
freshly-fragranced garment.
ANY GOOD? When I tried this
on my chunky-knit cardigan
which smelled of smoke from
a log fire, the pungent odour
of alcohol was so overpowering that I had to hang it in
the garden. After an hour of
fresh air and autumn sunshine, the vodka had
evaporated and so had the
boozy smell — although a

surface, then brush the fabric
upwards, from the bottom to
the top, to remove ingrained

ANY GOOD? I placed my
daughter’s grubby-smelling
denim in a plastic bag on top
of the frozen peas and left
them to chill overnight. After
allowing them to defrost for
30 minutes she put them on.
They smelt quite fresh for an
hour or so but after that, the
‘wash me now’ whiff was back.
WOOLLY WONDER
The Laundress Wool and
Cashmere Spray, £7.95/120ml
from selfridges.com
WHAT IS IT? Cedar-fragranced
wool and cashmere spray
with antibacterial properties
from U.S. brand The Laundress. Spritz woollen garments from 6in away and
allow them to dry before folding and storing. The natural
cedar fragrance should help
to keep moths away.

everything with a delicious,
long-lasting, woody scent.

marks and it’s pricey.
SHEER JEANIUS?
Store jeans in the freezer
WHAT IS IT? Denim brands
like Levi Strauss & Co and
Welsh jeans brand hiut warn
against washing jeans too
often. Frequent washing can
fade colour and spoil texture
and fit. Instead, pop your
denim in the freezer overnight, where sub-zero temperatures kill off bacteria,
Why? According to scientists,
freezing may kill some
bacteria, but not all — and
the survivors tend to come
back with a vengeance. 0/5
CLOSE SHAVE
Gleener Fuzz Remover,
£14.99 from lakeland.co.uk
WHAT IS IT? A double-ended
fabric shaver and lint brush
(above) designed to remove
bobbles, pet hair, dandruff
and fluff from most fabrics.
ANY GOOD? There is a fabric
shaver at one end — which
can be fitted with one of
three interchangeable, clipon heads — and a flat, velvety
lint brush at the other. The
three shaver heads — all with
safe, non-sharp edges — allow
you to neatly remove fabric
‘pills’ quickly. Just hold the
fabric taut and run the flat
edge of the shaver over rough
areas to remove unsightly
bobbles. Finally, use the lint
brush to whisk away loose
fibres, hair, dust and dandruff. Clothes really do look
revitalised — but odours and
4/5
stains remain.
MANDY FRANCIS
We would stay in ‘spectacular heritage hotels
— once the seat of ruling maharajas’. There
would be ‘exceptional dining, Golden Age
service, an Arabian Nights adventure under
Bikaner’s desert sky and air-conditioned vehicle
transfers and travel’.
What better way for a sixtysomething couple
to see the highlights of India? And what better
way to inject some new spice into a 38-year
marriage? All for £2,400 each.
Scenes from The Best exotic Marigold hotel
— with its glorious colours, gaiety and romance
— flickered through my mind. I booked it.
A trip to India had long been at the top of my
bucket list. All my life I had longed to fill a huge
gap from my childhood.
I was ten years old when my father, Alvin, an
electrical engineer, was asked by his company
to finish a job in Madras, now Chennai. It was
for only six months, so my mother and I stayed
at home in Barnsley and I passed my 11-plus.
All was set for Dad to come home and for me
to follow in my mother’s footsteps and attend
Barnsley Girls’ high School.
Six months on, and a telegram came from Dad.
he had done such a good job, they wanted him
to take on another contract, this time in Calcutta,
now Kolkata, and it would be for two years. he
would agree only if his family could join him.
It took my mother, Win, all of five minutes to
start booking the jabs she would need and
buying lightweight cotton frocks. She couldn’t
wait to join her husband, whom she adored.
‘Mum,’ I spoke somewhat quizzically. ‘What
about me?’
‘Don’t worry, love,’ she sounded reassuring.
‘The company won’t fly you in and out for
holidays, but they’ll pay for you to go to school
in Darjeeling. It’ll be lovely.’
‘hang on a minute,’ I said. ‘That’s a boarding
school. I thought you said there was no point
having children if you were going to send them
to boarding school. I’m not coming. I’m going to
the high School.’
I couldn’t be moved, and Grandma stepped in
with an alternative — I could stay with her. So I
never did go to India.
Fifty-eight years later, I began to make plans.
October would be a good time to go; the monsoon would be over and it wouldn’t be too hot.
W
e Were right about the
monsoon, but not the heat.
After an eight-and-a-half-hour
red-eye flight, we emerged into
blazing sunshine. There were 18 people in the
group — not so small after all — and the first
sight of the air-conditioned vehicle made my
and my husband David’s hearts sink.
Not the comfy mini-bus we had envisioned,
but a huge coach, which had seen better days,
required you to have the fitness of an athlete to
mount and dismount, had no toilet on board
and had suspension ill-suited to India’s unpredictably dodgy and extremely bumpy roads.
We were driven through Delhi’s mad traffic to
the hotel, Maidens, a pretty, colonial structure.
here we were offered lassi, a drink, and advised
to buy some lunch and prepare to visit Old Delhi,
experience a cycle rickshaw ride and see a
mosque and the site of Gandhi’s cremation.
All this after a night of no sleep on the plane.
And, oh, by the way, we should unpack what we
needed for the morning as our suitcases would
be returned to the coach and taken to Agra. We
would be up early to catch the fast train to the
Taj Mahal, where we would meet the coach to
continue the journey. I had planned a swim in
the pool. No time. No energy.
Already I was beginning to think this trip
might be a little overstuffed for 18 somewhat
elderly people, all in their 60s and 70s.
That first afternoon was so chaotic that we
arrived at the Gandhi site just before it was due
to close and it was dark. I was so exhausted I
simply stayed on the coach.
Dinner was the first of many buffets that offered
neither ‘exceptional dining’ nor ‘Golden Age

My WORST
in the past, and emerge into a
village where cows munched their
way through a proliferation of
plastic debris — and that’s not to
mention the inadequate drainage.
David and I did have one
experience which took us closer
to the real India than anything we
had shared with the group. We’d
had a swim at the hotel in Jaipur
and as David emerged from the
water, he felt something strange
in his eye. The next morning it
was worse. It felt as though a flock
of birds was flying across the eye.
The hotel receptionist
recommended a small, state
hospital rather than one of the
five-star expensive ones. We took
a tuk-tuk there and found a very
small, unimpressive building teeming with patients. We checked in
and were allocated a nurse to guide
us through the system. No preferential treatment for the foreigners.
Everybody had the same help.
H
E WAS diagnosed with
a tear in the retina. A
blood test was
analysed on the spot.
He was offered laser treatment to
repair the tear — if he waited and
continued the bumpy tour it could
get worse. He accepted.
Three-and-a-half hours after our
arrival, he was declared done by
the consultant, charged the equivalent of £17.50 and discharged. It
was the most efficient, kind and
caring experience of a health
service I’ve ever witnessed. And
we had no problems
with it as we continued our travels.
I don’t think any of
us had quite understood just how huge
rajasthan, one of the
29 states of the massive sub-continent,
would be. Nor had we
realised that the 1,500
miles we’d cover in
our two weeks would
be travelled in such
discomfort. It was
especially difficult
for those who went
down with Delhi belly. Some of
journeys lasted as much as seven
hours with one short stop at pretty
basic facilities.
our driver was phenomenal,
negotiating unmade roads,
undisciplined traffic and wandering cows with aplomb. He did,
though, always have to break the
speed limit to make the time, once
getting stopped by the police and
paying a 500-rupee fine.
I asked him about the rules of
the road in India, such as driving
on the left, overtaking on the right
and giving priority to traffic on
the right at a roundabout. There
are rules, he said, but nobody
takes any notice of them.
At the end of the holiday, I asked
our attentive guide, Sunil, how the
travel firm could have planned
such an exhausting holiday. They
would, he thought, have sent one
man in a car to see the hotels and
based the timings on his trip.
rather ruefully, he said: ‘They
don’t allow for the fact that it
takes a lot longer to get 18 elderly
people on and off a coach and
round the forts and palaces.’
my attempts to confirm his
theory have failed. I left a message
for the press officer to call me
back. Not much so far.
I will go back to India, but next
time I’ll take the advice of a couple
I met in Jaipur. They flew
independently, hired a car and
driver at a reasonable rate, saw
the sites they wanted to see in
their own time and then flew to
Goa for a restful week by the sea.
I shall go to Kolkata, find the
villa that was my parents’ home
and then relax in Goa or Kerala.
That’s what I call a real holiday!

service’, only a self-service range
of curries we would encounter time
and again. The group was expected
to sit together and it was clear
from the outset that we might be
an ill-matched collection.
There were the couples who had
‘done’ Vietnam and Cambodia and
were now ‘doing’ India, two women
who were returning to the country
after meeting in the Seventies as
hippies at an Ashram, and a couple
of Welsh farmers who were
fascinated by the proliferation of
sacred cows on every street.
The train station was an
experience; hordes of people
rushing to work, nowhere to sit
and so hot, even early in the
morning. The train arrived bang
on time and we rushed to Agra.
The Taj mahal is every bit as
exquisite as you imagine, but, oh,
the crowds. Thousands of people
queuing to go through security, a
long walk to the mausoleum, temperatures hitting 90f. I gave in to
my raging sciatica and hired a
wheelchair for £10. Not the romantic experience we’d hoped for.
Then began the mad rush
around. Nine hotels in two weeks.
Lots of early starts. ‘Please make
sure your bags are outside your
room by 8am’ was a familiar
instruction. The average journey
was between five and seven hours.
only five of the hotels were for
two nights and not all had a
swimming pool. The cuisine was
much the same as it had been on
the first night.
Certain promised treats failed to
materialise, including a dinner in
a family home in Jaipur and an
evening cruise on Lake Pichola in
Udaipur. The cruise happened,
but at lunchtime, necessitating a
long wait with other tours —
French and German — in blazing
sunshine. Not just mad dogs
and Englishmen go out in the
midday sun!
on the whole, the hotels were,
indeed, exquisite. only the one at
Udaipur, known as the Venice of
India, was a real disappointment
— it was modern and you could
have been anywhere in the world.
The others were the former
homes of the ruling royalty and
were breathtaking, but then there
was that uncomfortable feeling of
enjoying luxury in the midst of
extreme poverty.

49-year-old mother of two, from
Truro, Cornwall, watched in horror on TV as the tragic events
unfolded at Grenfell Tower in
North Kensington, London.
She imagined what it would be

into the horrific inferno.

Besides survivors, displaced
time to rest, a time to let our neighbours and firefighters, the
charity also welcomes those who
lost family and friends in the
tragedy, which claimed 72 lives.
One of these was Aziza, who
arrived in Cornwall in August
with her mother and five-year-old
brother, Adam — residents of a
neighbouring tower to Grenfell.
‘It was a glorious week,’ smiles
Esme, who lives with her property
manager husband, Rob, 49, and
sons, Pax, 11, and Kes, eight.
‘Seeing Aziza smile was wonderful. After the fire, she said she had
lost hope. Nowhere seemed to be
happy or safe any more. Then she
came to Cornwall and the seaside
worked its magic.
‘Her little brother, Adam, turned
out to be our 300th visitor which
made his happiness extra special.
We had a wonderful trip to the
Isles of Scilly — organised by the
island’s travel company.
‘Adam wants to be a pilot when
he grows up. So the pilot welcomed him into the cockpit. As
we took to the air, he was beaming. These wonderful memories
can’t erase the past. But they can

collagen production, amber and green
light is used to treat skin pigmentation
problems and sun damage, while blue
light stops the bacteria that cause acne.

THE PIZZA WHEEL
EYELINER
STruggle to perfect
your liquid eyeliner? That
could be because you’ve
been using a pen or a
brush when what you
really need is a pizza
wheel. Yes, a pizza wheel
— or to be more accurate,
a miniaturised version of
one of those trundle
wheels they use for drawing lines on the road.
The premise is simple — dip the
wheel into the liquid liner, as you
would a brush, and roll across the
lash line. Mac kickstarted the revolution last year with roller Wheel
eyeliner (no longer available) but
now everyone from guerlain
(roll’Ink liner, £17.95, allbeauty.
com) to Nudestix (rock ’n’ roller
easy liner, £20, cultbeauty.co.uk)
and revlon (ColorStay exactly
liquid liner, £8.99, superdrug.
com) has a version. Perfect if
you’re a little cack-handed.

glowy, your skin is cakey and flat.
until now, there was no way to
quickly and easily reverse the
powderiness, but guerlain’s latest part-make-up, part-skincare
product can do exactly that.
It’s basically a super-lightweight
tinted moisturiser laced with
micro-pearls that you can apply
as a primer, or — and this is where
it comes into its own — on top of
make-up to give a dewy glow
that moisturises at the same
time. guerlain Abeille royale

THE NAIL VARNISH
REMOVING CREAM
TrulY a miracle for anyone
used to polish removers that
seem to strip everything from
the nail, leaving them dry and
brittle. This acetone-free nail
polish remover cream smells
nice, gets rid of polish and
leaves nails and cuticles nourished, thanks to macadamia,
almond, argan and vitamin e oils.
It smells and feels like a posh
hand cream but, apply a thick
layer to your nail, leave for a couple of minutes, then remove with
a tissue or cotton pad for polishfree, moisturised paws. Nailfix &
Chill Nail Polish eraser Cream,
£12.95, thisisbeautymart.com.
THE ANTI-AGEING
POWER CAPSULES
The next generation of skincare
capsules are packed with more
powerful ingredients, and are
increasingly available at the
cheaper end of the market.
As well as being convenient
for travelling, they keep active
ingredients protected from
light and air, ensuring they’re
at their most potent when they
hit the skin, and deliver the
perfect dose.
elizabeth Arden’s ceramide
capsules now come with added
retinol, the anti-ageing skin
ingredient everyone is raving
about (retinol Ceramide Capsules, £42, elizabetharden.co.uk).
For those on a
budget, nSpa
(Nightly revitalising retinol
Capsules, £10,
Asda) also has a
version containing retinol and
moisturising oils. It’s
so confident about the results, it
is offering a money-back guarantee if you don’t look younger in
four weeks.
Beauty Pie has two types of capsule, one with vitamins C and e to
help brighten and protect skin,
and the other with hyaluronic
acid (from £10, beautypie.com).
And watch out for l’oreal’s
revitalift hA Ampoules, a sevenday skin-plumping course, which
is due to be launched later
this month.
THE GEL-IFICATION
OF SKINCARE
You might think we’d all be
turning to heavyweight creams
and oils, given the winter chill,
but the latest skincare trend is
COMING LATER THIS YEAR....
THE SUPER-CHARGED
EYE PATCHES
WHETHER it’s fine lines, dark circles or bags, the under-eye
area is notoriously difficult to
treat. Gel masks can help, but
the latest generation have
extra teeth. Known as micro
needle patches, they don’t
pierce the skin, rather they have
a surface of microspikes that feels
rough — like a cat’s tongue. The idea
is that they not only stimulate the
production of collagen, but also
enhance penetration of any
ingredient. Radara are not
cheap, at £169 for a 28-day
course (skinoracle.com), but
they claim to reduce wrinkles
by up to 35 per cent in a month.
Vichy’s LiftActiv Micro Hyalu
patches (£13.33, escentuals.
com) are similar, but the spikes
are made of hyaluronic acid that
gradually dissolve into the skin.
To the rescue: Dr
Zamani’s light-therapy
golden facial mask
for lightweight gel textures that
are super hydrating, without
being clogging.
The beauty community’s current fave is Dr Sam Bunting’s
Flawless Cleanser (£16, drsambunting.com), a simple, soothing,
unfragranced clear jelly that
effectively cleanses all skin types
without irritation.
Moisturisers have gone similarly lightweight — there’s
Murad’s Nutrient Charged Water
gel (£50, murad.
co.uk) with peptides, vitamins
and minerals in a
moisture-locking
base; revolution
Skin’s hydration
Boost gel-Cream
(£8, revolutionbeauty.com) and
even olay has created an ultralight formulation (£34.99) using a
technology that allows the
product to hold up to 1,000 times
its weight in water, alongside
key ingredients, which are
released onto the skin in a creamto-liquid form.
SMART PACKAGING
REVAMPS
The people behind the iconic
Beautyblender sponge have created a foundation (Bounce, £32,
cultbeauty.co.uk) in a bottle that
is designed to dispense
the foundation into a well
in the side.
You then dip your
sponge into that and
apply to the face rather
than putting foundation
on the back of your hand
(messy) or straight onto
the sponge/your face
(uneven coverage and
wasted product).
Meanwhile, in the world
of haircare, hold Me
T h r e e Wa y s ( £ 1 3 . 9 6 ,

like a regular hairspray, but twist
the nozzle and you can adjust
how much spray is dispensed,
from light for taming flyaways
and setting a blow dry, to high
for securing up-dos and making

LAST NIGHT’S TV
real Bradley Walsh speaking.
Xand van Tulleken forgot his
TV presenter’s etiquette for
a short while as he got a tattoo
on the sole of his foot in
The Twinstitute (BBC2).
he was testing the theory that
swearing helps dull pain, by
roared. ‘Fustilugs!’ Good words
before the watershed.
Then the needle hit a nerve
and the commentary had to
be bleeped.
This was a brisk half-hour of
frothy health advice. Xand’s
identical twin brother also had a
tattoo, tried meditating instead
of swearing and announced it
was much more effective.
Obviously, the best pain
management solution would be
never get a tattoo on the bottom
of your foot.
Other pairs of twins tested
whether dieting or exercise was
more effective for weight loss,
and if methodical study beat
frenzied cramming.
It was all so light-hearted as to
be meaningless, though at New
Year, when we’re determined to
stick to our resolutions, the
21-stone, beer-loving, middleaged twins tackling tough
weight-loss regimes were
an inspiration.
Good luck, lads.

THE duo drew big TV audiences

THE prequel series to the Liam

Grandad was star
of the stag party
M
y MaTE Topsy,
who was in the
army, went on a
boozy stag night.
The bridegroom had
arranged for Topsy and two of
his colleagues to stay at his
grandad’s house that night
before they returned to
barracks in the morning.
at the end of the evening, the
grandson poured his friends
into a taxi and exhorted
them to ensure grandad got
out the best whisky, which he
kept hidden in the living
room cabinet.
They duly arrived, knocked on
the door and informed
grandad that they’d come to
sleep in his living room and
Picture that!
FI-DOUGH: I found this cute
little dog in my pizza!
not to forget the best bottle of
whisky. He delivered the
bottle with three glasses,
then went to bed.
The next morning Topsy and
co were awoken by the smell
of a fried breakfast. They
gratefully devoured it and,
thanking their host profusely,
took their leave.
When reunited with the
bridegroom, they told him
what a lovely old man his
grandfather was.
He replied that was strange
because he’d received a late
phone call from him to report
they hadn’t turned up.
They had rolled up at the
wrong house!

Today’s poem
SNOW WHITE?
Snow White had some
grey areas —
She wasn’t as pure as
you think,
In fact, to be quite honest
She used to hit the drink!
The drink would make
her Sleepy,
Not Happy, as she thought,
In fact, it made her Grumpy,
Dopey and overwrought!
If only it made her Sneezy
Or gave an allergic reaction,
Maybe then she would
give it up
And not see the attraction!
She wasn’t very Bashful
In saying she loved
the booze,
And not one inch a lady
From her head to her little
black shoes!
The dwarfs were in
a quandary
As they had had enough,
And decided the one to
help her
Could only be the Doc.
They recalled that
famous saying
That just one apple a day
Is like a preventative
medicine
To keep the Doc away.
Then one of the
dwarfs remembered
That just a few hours before
An old lady had
delivered one
Right to their front door!
They gave the apple to
Snow White
Who promptly fell asleep,
And they joyfully say that
since that day
They haven’t heard a peep!

Fireworks’ damp squib
CELEBRATE THE LIFE
OF A LOVED ONE
TOURISTS came to celebrate New
year’s Eve in London not because we
are part of Europe, but to celebrate
our difference.
Why did such dreadful music
accompany the fantastic fireworks?
We should have celebrated our own
musical heritage, classical and pop,
instead of the Mayor’s ridiculous
salute to all things European.
HAVE you lost a relative or
friend in recent months
whose life you’d like to
celebrate? Our column on
Friday’s letters page tells the
stories of ordinary people
who lived extraordinary lives.
Email a 350-word tribute to:
lives@dailymail.co.uk or write
to: Extraordinary Lives, Daily
Mail, 2 Derry Street, London
W8 5TT. Please include a
contact phone number.
Mrs A. SMITH, Croydon, Surrey.
DaRE we hope that, after the
firework spectacular to welcome in
the New year, London Mayor Sadiq
Khan will cease pontificating about
the capital being open to the EU and
concentrate on the issues that affect
those who live there?
He should tackle crime by concentrating resources on the police. There
could even be a visible presence on
the streets to deter crime from being
committed in the first place.
Never was a project so aptly named
as Crossrail — it’s a word that causes
my blood pressure to rise. I have
faced noise at night from ceaseless
engineering works and disruption in
train services over weekends and
bank holidays.
Infrastructure issues facing my
borough, such as public transport,
jobs, schools and the uncertainty
over the fate of King George
Hospital, are not being addressed by
the Mayor.
licence; a Prime Minister who
promises to pay the EU £39 billion for
a trade deal that hasn’t materialised;
and a Government department that
gives away £12 billion a year for
dubious schemes abroad, is it any
wonder the country’s finances are in
such dire straits?

IT WOULD have been a much greater
accolade for London to have
welcomed in the New year not with
millions of pounds worth of pretty,
shiny, ephemeral fireworks, but with
action that meant not a single person
remained homeless.
Mrs EFROSYNI HOBBS, London SE9.

Call Juncker’s bluff
CONTRaRy to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s
assertion, it is for the EU to find a
resolution to the Irish backstop, not
the UK.
In the event of a no-deal Brexit, it
is not the UK that would impose a
border between Northern Ireland
and the Republic, but the EU. It
would do so to protect its precious
customs union and single market,
which it holds more dear than peace
in Ireland. The Irish ‘problem’ is
entirely of the EU’s making.
It is time to call Juncker’s bluff and
to leave the EU with no deal.

Did any of the
competitors in the
Olympic art competitions go on to
become famous?
QUESTION
From the 5th olympiad in Stockholm in
1912, the olympics included an arts
competition. medals were awarded in five
categories: architecture, literature, music,
painting and sculpture, the so-called
Pentathlon of the muses.
The arts had been introduced by Baron
Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the
International olympic Committee.
They were dropped after 1948 because of
the difficulty of determining the artists’
amateur status.
Baron de Coubertin won a gold medal in
literature at the 1912 Games for his ode
To Sport. This was submitted under the
pseudonyms Georges Hohrod and martin
Eschbach to avoid claims of favouritism.
mahonri Young, grandson of the mormon
leader Brigham Young, won gold in the
sculpture competition at the 1932 Los
Angeles Games for The Knockdown, a
bronze of two pugilists, which is now in the
Smithsonian museum. He produced public
works in New York and Salt Lake City, but
is best known for his boxing statues.
John russell Pope, who designed some
of the U.S.’s great public buildings, including the Jefferson memorial, the National
Archives and the National Gallery of Art,
won a silver medal in architecture at the
1932 Los Angeles Games for his design of
Yale’s Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
Walter Winans was one of two people to
win olympic medals in sport and the arts.
In 1912, he won silver in the team running
deer shooting and gold in sculpture for his
bronze An American Trotter, a figure of a
horse and chariot.
In 1896, Hungarian Alfred Hajos won
gold in the 100m and 1,200m freestyle
swimming. In 1924, he was awarded a
silver medal in architecture for his plan
for a swimming stadium.
Christina Powers, Carterton, Oxon.

(1871-1957) is overshadowed by his elder
brother, the poet W. B. Yeats, yet he was
Ireland’s first olympic medallist.

QUESTION
Was Sri Lanka
ever part of India?
UNLIKE other modern countries in
South Asia, such as India, Bangladesh
and Pakistan, which have been ruled by
various empires, Sri Lanka has remained
a distinct region unto itself.
With one exception, the empires of the
subcontinent made little effort to control
Sri Lanka. The British ruled it separately
from the raj as a crown colony.
The exception was between 993AD and
1070AD, when Sri Lanka was colonised
by the Chola empire, one of the longest
ruling dynasties in history.
The Chola empire was established in
the province of Tamil Nadu, in the southern tip of India, in 300BC and lasted for
more than 1,000 years.
In 993AD, raja raja Cholan sent a large
army to conquer the Anuradhapura
Kingdom in the north.
most of the island was conquered and
incorporated as a province of the Chola
empire during the reign of his son,
rajendra Chola.
The Cholas were overthrown in 1070 by
a rebellion led by Vijayabahu I, one of the
dispossessed Sinhalese monarchs.
Buddhism survived in Sri Lanka,
despite the island’s neighbours being
Hindu and the fact that most of the
islands in the Indian ocean — Zanzibar,
Comoros, the maldives and Indonesia —
converted to Islam.

Did Field Marshal
Erwin Rommel
have poor eyesight?
QUESTION
AS A Territorial Army soldier, I served
with a Field Ambulance Unit of the royal
Army medical Corps, a pre-war unit that
was called up for full-time service when
war broke out in 1939.
After we had fallen out following a drill
evening, the bar was open and several
veterans, who qualified for free drinks,
would come in for a beer.
A couple of the old boys who wore the
Africa Star medal told us one evening
that they had treated rommel as a
patient in the desert.
The unit’s field dressing station was
busy treating the wounded when the
medics realised the noise of combat had
passed on, stranding them behind the
German lines.
A group of German officers came into the
tent, including General (as he was then)
Erwin rommel. one of the officers spoke
English and explained the general had grit
and dust in his eyes. rommel sat in a chair
and our commanding officer cleaned out
his eyes with sterile water. rommel said
‘Danke’ (thank you) and left.
A short time later, the English-speaking
officer reported that rommel had said as
long as the unit was treating casualties
they were not to be taken prisoner.
He had left orders for a section of
Feldgendarmerie (military police) to stay
at the dressing station and turn away
any German soldiers who tried to take
away the medics.

WHat do you respond on this hand when
partner opens (a) 1♥ or (b) 1♠?
WE DoN’T often hold such a good hand when
partner opens the bidding, so it’s important to
enjoy the auction and reach the best contract.
Clearly, you intend to be in game and you should
also have a slam interest at this stage if partner
has the right values.
But the key point to understand is that you
should never make a forcing jump response to
show your slam interest just because you
hold 16HCPs.
The jump response must also carry the
message that you know in which suit the
contract might be played.
Partner’s opening 1♥ on (a) does not improve
your hand and you need bidding space to
explore more about his values, so you bid 2♣.
The 1♠ opening makes an enormous difference
to the value of your hand. With trump support
and the singleton, you can afford to use a level
of bidding to show your slam interest by making
a jump response of 3♣.
This is a borderline force; you could opt for 2♣,
but you might have more difficulty conveying
your strength subsequently.

EDUCATION &
COURSES
IM CURBBUN began studying
to become a primary school
teacher, but realised university
wasn’t for him and left his course
after three months.
Instead, the 29-year-old from Chesterfield,
Derbyshire, decided he wanted a career in the
beauty therapy and make-up industry.
While working in retail for a beauty company,
he continued to study at a local make-up
academy and Chesterfield College.
He has since gained qualifications in beauty
therapy, media make-up and also undertaken an
assessor award.
Tim continues to work part-time at a salon in
Stretton, Derbyshire, while lecturing and
working as an assessor in the beauty industry.
He recently completed the Certificate in
Education at Chesterfield
College Campus, through
the University of Derby.
Tim, who was a runner-up
in the 2016 Festival of
Learning awards, provides
local employers with
work experience students
and helps to co-ordinate
apprenticeships.
As part of his role, he
supports students attempting to get into beauty
therapy with industryrelated interview techniques and trade testing.
He says: ‘My teaching
ambition has been fulfilled
thanks to my love of beauty
and make-up. I always had
the ambition to be an assessor within beauty therapy
and media make-up.

me through the qualification I took on the opportunity with enthusiasm.’ Tim
Brush strokes: Tim Curbbun is following his dream
says he gets job satisfaction
from being able to pamper
people and make them feel
amazing while sharing
his skills with the beauty
therapists and make-up
artists of the future.
His days are varied
depending on whether he
is at the salon or working
at Chesterfield College.
‘I thrive on people
achieving the best of their
capabilities and that is
definitely the ethos of
Chesterfield College,’
says Tim.
He has now started a BA
(Honours) Business Management degree through
the Open University to
progress his career. He says
it is starting to become a
‘more balanced industry’.
Advising other men
aiming to enter the beauty
industry, he adds: ‘Do
not let anything stop you
from achieving your
dream career.
‘Beauty and make-up was
always a hobby of mine and
I think it is all about doing
a job that you love. You
work more than anything
else in life, so you’ve got to

conomics is not known
as the gloomy science for
nothing. The Financial
Times’ annual survey of 80
top forecasters suggests
that Brexit uncertainty will stunt
investment and growth in 2019 even
if there is an orderly UK departure
from the EU.
Read into the survey closely and what
actually is being predicted is that UK
output will come in close to the 2018
figure of 1.5pc in the current year.
That may be well below Trump tax cutfuelled Us growth. But at the tail end of a
long UK economic upswing it would be no
mean achievement given the stuttering
eurozone recovery.
The latest purchasing managers’ index
shows UK manufacturing hit a six-month
high in December. The popular explanation
for this is that companies are stockpiling in
preparation for a no-deal Brexit.
instead of sitting around doing nothing,
manufacturers are looking over the march
29 cliff and making sensible decisions.
many of the bigger companies spoken to
in recent weeks, such the nation’s biggest
exporter Rolls-Royce, are making long-term
strategic decisions including a big
Ivy owner’s

rates pain
THE restaurant empire owned by
tycoon Richard Caring has said
soaring business rates have
dented profits.
Caprice Holdings, which houses
upmarket restaurants including
The Ivy and Sexy Fish, said ‘significant’ rises in rent and business
rates hit its bottom line despite
rising sales.
Profits fell by £1.5m to £7.2m in
2017 while sales climbed 2.1pc.
Caring’s restaurants are popular
with celebrities and have been
frequented by David and Victoria
Beckham, Kate Moss and singer
Rita Ora.
It comes following a difficult
year for the restaurant industry
which saw a number of firms such
as Byron, Prezzo and Jamie’s Italian close sites.
Meanwhile steak chain Gaucho
and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s
upmarket restaurant Barbecoa
fell into administration.
Caring, 70, also owns London
nightclub Annabel’s and restaurant chain Bill’s.
The married father-of-five
started his career in retail at the
age of 16.
And Caring launched his restaurant group after snapping up the
parent company of his favourite
restaurant Le Caprice for £31.5m

age. The unfair assault on traditional shops
by Amazon and online players, which escape
upward-only rent reviews and business
rates, is hurting. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that consumer spending, which
takes many forms, is really suffering.
What we need to cherish is that so much
about the UK is doing well. our creative
industries, from gaming to JK Rowling and
stormzy, have been the fastest-growing sector since the financial crisis. Barely a day
passes without encouraging developments
from our science-based industries.

Amid the headline gloom it is worth
reflecting on what is going well for the UK.
The last year ended with record numbers in
employment, real wages rising, unemployment at 4pc, its lowest in four decades, and
increasing numbers of workers shifting from
the gig economy into permanent work.
To read the headlines from the High street
one might think all is falling apart. We will
learn more of that from next today.
But it is illustrative to note that John

Tax terriers
HmRc has been successful in clamping
down on tax avoidance and aggressive tax
planning as comedian Jimmy carr and the
new chief executive of BT Philip Jansen
might testify.
since 2010 it has raked in £185bn which
otherwise would not have been paid.
indeed, as the Resolution Foundation
thinktank points out, there is still much
more to go for if, for instance, the chancellor were to limit entrepreneurs’ relief where
three-quarters of the £3.9bn tax breaks go
to 5,000 people.
or it could clamp down on inheritance tax
loopholes. if authorities kept their focus on
the biggest avoiders, such as silicon Valley
giants, there would be fewer complaints.
But when HmRc turns its guns on the
christmas club and ‘sensible shoes’ for
employees at iceland you want to scream
foul. iceland is in hot water because the
requirement that workers wear the right
shoes means some buy them off their own
bat and that takes their average income
below the national living wage. HmRc
wants iceland to repair the damage.
That HmRc spends time on such piffle
cannot be what ‘spreadsheet Phil’ wants.

THE first banking casualty of 2019, surprise,

Discounts boost
John Lewis in
Christmas rush
by Hannah Uttley
HEAVY discounting at John
Lewis gave the department
store a much-needed boost
over christmas.
in a glimmer of hope for the
struggling High street, its sales
climbed 4.2pc in the week to
December 22 and increased 4.5pc
in the week to December 29, compared with the same periods a
year earlier.
Across the whole John Lewis
Partnership, which includes Waitrose, sales increased by 11.1pc
last week.
The figures come amid fears
that retailers were forced to slash
prices in the run-up to christmas
to boost sales.
The department store began
reducing prices online from 5pm
on christmas Eve.
managing director Paula nickolds ( pictured ) hailed ‘very
strong sales on christmas Eve
and a confident start to clearance
sales both online and in shops’.
Patrick o’Brien, an analyst at

But its shares rose 4.7pc yesterday on hopes that results would
not be as bad as predicted.
next’s shares fell by more than
11pc last year before yesterday’s

meanwhile, Debenhams’ shares
swung wildly, falling as much as
10pc in early trading before closing up 2.3pc, or 0.12p, at 5.25p.

Debenhams is now vulnerable to a takeover, with
sports Direct tycoon mike
Ashley thought to be interested in making a grab for
the beleaguered firm. Ashley,
64, already owns just under
30pc of Debenhams.
meanwhile, John Lewis’s sister firm Waitrose fared less well
over christmas.
sales at the supermarket
soared 19.2pc in the week to
December 29, but this followed
an 11.8pc decline in the week to
December 22, prompting fears
that shoppers opted for cheaper
alternatives such as Aldi and Lidl
over the festive period.
A John Lewis Partnership
spokesman said: ‘A more meaningful picture of our full figures
for the six weeks ending December 29 will be given when we
report our christmas trading figures on January 10.’

Playtech, which is based
in the isle of man and listed

fresh blow after troubles in
italy where tax on gambling

Playtech said its full-year

MINING giant Rio Tinto
wants to delay a multi-million pound bonus to its
former chief executive for
a second time.
US and UK authorities are
still investigating an £8m
payment made to a French
consultant in 2011. In 2016,
former boss Sam Walsh, 69,
agreed to defer his bonus
payments because of the
probes. Walsh was due the
first half of the bonus last
month but as the probes
are ongoing, Rio Tinto has
asked him for another
deferral.
It reported itself to the
Department of Justice in
the US and the UK’s Serious
Fraud Office over the payment in 2016, shortly after
Walsh stepped down.

While the UK’s stock market
swung wildly, paring early losses
to close marginally higher, oil and
gas exploration business Ophir
leapt after confirming a potential
buyer was sniffing around.
The company told investors that
it was in talks with Indonesian
energy business Medco, which is
considering making a cash offer to
acquire the whole firm.
Ophir did not give any indication of how much Medco plans to
stump up, and the Indonesian
firm now has until January 28 to
either make a formal bid or step
away from the deal.
But the announcement did
boost Ophir’s shares by 28.9pc, or
10.3p, to 46p, adding almost £73m
to the minnow’s market value.
Before the announcement, Ophir
was trading at £252m, making it
around a third of the size of
Jakarta-listed Medco.
If the deal materialises, said

it would create a south-east Asian
‘powerhouse’ in the sector.
Meanwhile investors in the
FTSE 100 hoping for a positive
start to the New Year were left
feeling flat after 2019’s first day of

Britain’s biggest listed companies
recovered some of its sharp early
losses to end the day up 0.1pc, or
6.1 points, at 6734.23 points.
It was weighed down by heavyweight miners, which were smarting from data which showed that

Glencore led the decline, falling
3pc, or 8.85p, to 282.5p, while
Anglo American was down 2.1pc,
or 37.4p, at 1710.4p.
The FTSE 250 eked out higher
gains, ending up 0.5pc, or 84.65
points, at 17,586.7 points. Stobart
Group, Southend Airport’s owner,
appeared to be putting a torrid
year behind it as it became the
index’s highest riser.
Analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald
said that an unrelated deal over
the Christmas break, in which
France’s Vinci bought a stake in
Gatwick Airport, valuing the flight
hub at £2.9bn, highlighted the
attractiveness of Stobart’s own
airport assets. Shares climbed
6.5pc, or 9.4p, to 153.8p.

Iceland locked
in £48m battle
with the taxman
ICELAND is at war with the by Matt Oliver
taxman over an ‘idiotic’ £48m the scheme by staff, or £3.5m annubill it faces for a savings club ally over six years.
and rules asking staff to wear
The retailer could also be forced to
pay the same amount again in a fine
smart shoes.
The frozen food giant said HM
Revenue & Customs was wasting public money on probing its
finances, with founder Sir Malcolm Walker (pictured) branding
it ‘madness’.
HMRC claims a Christmas savings
scheme offered to staff and rules
asking them to wear ‘suitable’ shoes
as part of their uniform break minimum wage rules.
But Richard Walker, Iceland’s
managing director and son of the
founder, said: ‘We’re proud to have
paid £1.4bn in UK taxes over the
last 13 years, and have always tried
to do the right thing for our own
people. At a time when the UK High
Street is under unprecedented pressure, this is idiotic.’
Iceland’s Christmas savings
scheme allows staff to put aside
some wages into a ring-fenced
pot of cash. They can withdraw the money at any time.
But HMRC says the payments caused some staff ’s
take-home wages to fall below
the minimum amount required
by law, even though they
received the money
later on.
It has told Iceland to repay
£21m put into
for breaching the rules, taking the
bill to £42m.
Separately, HMRC says Iceland
should pay almost £6m compensation to staff who have bought shoes
for work, leaving the total bill
approaching a possible £48m.
This is because Iceland’s staff rules
ask them to wear ‘suitable dark
shoes’. It offers employees free pairs
of safety shoes on request.
But HMRC said those who spent
money on smart shoes on any given
week may have also fallen below the
minimum wage threshold.
It says this could have amounted
to two pairs of £20 shoes per year, a
figure that could reach £5.8m overall
for its 24,000 staff.
Sir Malcolm, who founded Iceland
in 1970, has vowed to fight the
claims in court if necessary.
Writing on the company’s
website this year, he said:
‘Although we have continued to raise pay each year,
the introduction of the
national living wage has
brought our rates much
closer to the legal minimum
and this has recently brought
us under the baleful gaze
of the HMRC minimum wage task
force.
‘ Yo u ’ d t h i n k
HMRC might put more effort into
chasing the £1bn of corporation tax
successfully avoided by the likes of
Apple, Facebook and Google, or the
VAT dodged on Amazon and Ebay.
‘Particularly under a Conservative
government, surely the public
sector’s top priority should be
to support and encourage
responsible wealth creators, not
to harass them?’
A spokesman for HM Revenue &
Customs said it did not comment on
specific cases.
But he added: ‘All businesses, irrespective of size or business sector
are responsible for paying the correct minimum wage to their staff.
‘HMRC won’t hesitate to take
action to ensure that workers
receive what they are legally
entitled to.’
The spokesman said HMRC judged
cases individually but that its
response would depend on whether
employees faced consequences for
not wearing certain pieces of
clothing.
It ‘named and shamed’ 179 companies last year for underpaying staff,
with Karen Millen and Shoe Zone
among those it singled out for
requiring staff to wear uniforms.
Sir Malcolm told the Times he had
personally approached Business
Secretary Greg Clark about Iceland’s case but said: ‘He promised
he would look into it – never heard
from him again.’
A spokesman for Iceland yesterday said the company was due to
meet HMRC this month.
TESLA SHARES SLAM INTO REVERSE
SHARES in Elon Musk’s Tesla plunged 10pc after the
electric car maker cut prices and missed production targets.
It built 86,555 vehicles in the fourth quarter,
including 61,394 of its flagship Model 3 sedans.
But that was little improvement on its previous
rate of 5,000 Model 3s per week.
At the same time, Tesla said it would cut the prices
of its Model S, Model X and Model 3 by about £1,590
because tax credits for electric vehicles are due to
end in the US.
The announcements spooked investors and sent
shares plunging by as much as 10pc in early trading. Nicholas Hyett, an analyst at Hargreaves
Lansdown, said: ‘For most automotive groups
these would be very impressive numbers.
‘But unfortunately for Tesla shareholders, the
market has come to expect Herculean achievements, and sometimes that means the bar is just
that little bit too high. Longer-term we think the
price cut is more concerning. It suggests customers are perhaps a bit more price-sensitive than
you might have thought.’
At current delivery rates, Tesla’s reductions
would cost it more than £550m in 2019, he said.
Tesla boss Musk is under intense pressure to deliver
on production promises, with the Model 3 billed as
its first mass market vehicle and its path to
profitability.
But the car maker is now also grappling with the
phasing out of tax credits in the US which made
buying electric vehicles less expensive.
Since Tuesday the relief has been halved and will
be halved every six months until it disappears.
Row over £608m Upmarket retailer
oil tie-up escalates bags a £26k profit
THE war of words between takeover target Faroe
Petroleum and Norwegian predator DNO heated up
again in the final hours before a key deadline.
North Sea oil company Faroe said an independent
report by consultants Gaffney, Cline & Associates
found the £608m hostile takeover offer from DNO
undervalues it by as much as 48pc.
DNO offered 152p per share for Faroe in November.
But the report published at the 11th hour by Faroe’s
board valued the firm at between £692m and £848m.
Faroe’s intervention came shortly before a deadline
yesterday for shareholders to accept DNO’s offer.
DNO holds a 29.9pc stake but needs 57.5pc of shareholders to clinch the deal.
Faroe’s board has publicly scorned DNO’s actions as
a bid to buy it on the cheap. DNO’s executive chairman, Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani, said: ‘It is plain that
Faroe’s defence is exhausted. Their valuation report
assesses an historic view of the company using an
inflated commodity price.’
UPMARKET shoes and handbag retailer Lulu Guinness swung to a small profit last year after a boost in
online sales.
The company, which sells handbags for up to £435
and shoes for £295, posted a 6pc rise in sales to
£10.1m in the year to March 25.
Profits were £25,799, compared with a loss of
£784,446 a year earlier.
Founded by Lulu Guinness, 58, in 1989 it is a favourite of celebrities including singer Katy Perry and
model Alexa Chung.
Guinness has two daughters with ex-husband, the
playwright and musician Valentine Guinness who is
the son of Guinness heir Lord Moyne.
Online sales jumped 20pc during the period and
now represent a third of its revenues. It opened six
stores and now has 19 shops.
UK business accounted for 85pc of revenues.

Go Compare in battle
to fend off predators
PRICE comparison website Go
Compare is in talks with investors as it fends off predators.
Bosses fear a sliding share
price has left it vulnerable to
a hostile takeover.
They have held talks with
shareholders and potential
investors to convince them of
its long-term prospects.
Go Compare has already batted off approaches from private equity firms but its shares
are down around 31pc since a
bid by online estate agent
Zoopla in 2017. Now the com-
pany has a market value of
just £292m and the management team is worried that a
hungry competitor could
make another attempt to
snap up the firm.
Among the firms holding
talks with GoCompare is activist investor Crystal Amber,
sources told The Mail.
Led by Richard Bernstein,
the firm is most well-known
for encouraging the takeover
of Thorntons by Ferrero and
of Aer Lingus by British Airways owner IAG.

WE’RE DOING EVERYTHING
WE CAN FOR OUR MICHAEL
MICHAEL SCHUMACHER’S family issued a
rare statement ahead of his 50th
birthday today, in which they reassured
his supporters that the stricken Formula
One legend is ‘in the very best of hands’.
Grand Prix racing’s most decorated
driver has not been seen in public since
he fell and hit his head in a skiing
accident in France five years ago.
The trauma required life-saving
operations and 254 days in hospital
before he returned to his house by Lake
Geneva, where he remains.
And yesterday the family broke their
long silence to say: ‘You can be sure that
he is in the very best of hands and that
we are doing everything humanly
possible to help him.
By JONATHAN McEVOY
‘Please understand if we are following
Michael’s wishes and keeping such a
sensitive subject as health, as it has
always been, in privacy.
‘At the same time we say thank you very
much for your friendship and wish you a
healthy and happy year.’
Little has been divulged about
Schumacher’s condition. However,
Sportsmail revealed last month that,
although his recovery is agonisingly
slow, he is not bedridden or existing
on tubes.
The family are keen for the birthday
celebrations to focus on his brilliance as
a sportsman: a seven-time world
champion with 91 race victories —
record feats brought about by total
dedication to his job.
Therefore, today they are launching
‘The Schumacher App’, which offers a
‘virtual museum’ of his career.
Ferrari are also opening an exhibition at
their Maranello headquarters to
honour the team’s most famous driver.
The Schumacher name may soon make
a return to Formula One through son
Mick, who was at his father’s side when
he had the accident. He will compete in
Formula Two this year after winning the
F3 title in 2018.
‘Carrying that name weighs heavily but
Mick manages it with great care and
intelligence,’ said Ross Brawn, a close
Support: Schumacher and his wife
Corinna before the accident RIC GAILLARD
family friend and the mastermind
behind Schumacher’s titles at Benetton
and Ferrari.
‘I hope to see him in F1 one day, but the
important thing is to let Mick grow and
find his own way without creating any
unnecessary expectations.’

with just two matches under his
belt since September.
On what proved a dire day for
British tennis in the first week of
the new season, Kyle Edmund —
the world No 14 who reached the
semi-finals in Melbourne last
year — was stunned by Japan’s
Yasutaka Uchiyama in straight
sets. Uchiyama is ranked 185th in
the world.
Jo Konta also lost in the second
round, the British No 1 going
down 6-2, 7-6 against Australia’s
Ajla Tomljanovic. Harriet Dart
lost 6-2, 6-0 to world No 11
Anastasija Sevastova.
Murray, who admitted this week
that he is unsure how long he will
be able to keep playing, made
22-year-old Medvedev work in the
first set, recovering from an early
break to lead 5-4.
But Murray struggled uncharacteristically in the longer rallies
and found Medvedev a much
tougher opponent than James
Duckworth in the first round.
The russian broke for a 6-5
lead and held his serve to love
to take the set, and carried
that momentum into the
second set, where he
raced to a 4-0 lead.
His dominance was
such that he faced no
break points in the
second set, which
lasted little more
than half an hour.
Medvedev said he
began to think about
his next opponent before
he had wrapped up the win.
In contrast, Murray was forced
to accept that he had made too
many errors. ‘He served extremely
well and I didn’t really get many
chances on his service games,’
Murray said. ‘And then on my

AUSTRALIAN
OPEN
11 DAYS
TO GO
DANNY CIPRIANI has been
given hope for a Six Nations
recall after joining a national
squad gathering with other
England hopefuls this week.
Cipriani has a chest injury and
will be out for a further four
weeks. But the fact that he
attended for medical checks
on Monday suggests he is still
in Eddie Jones’ plans for 2019.
Cipriani, 31, was not picked for
England’s autumn squad, with
Jones saying he was not
showing good enough form.
He last played for England in
the Cape Town win over South
Africa last summer.
He joined Gloucester from
Wasps but was arrested in
Jersey after an incident at
a nightclub.
That indiscretion, and his
autumn selection snub, made
Cipriani’s chances of going to
the World Cup in Japan this
year look slim — but the fact
that England included him on
Monday is a positive sign for
the playmaker.
Jones picks his squad for the
Six Nations on January 17 and
then will take the group on a
training camp in Portugal
before the Championship
opener in Dublin against
Ireland. Gloucester wing Ollie
Thorley, Worcester prop Nick
Schonert, their 19-year-old
flanker Ted Hill, Saracens’ Ben
Earl, 21, and Wasps’ Dan
Robson, now back from injury,
were some of the 40 or so
players at the meeting.
No training took place, but
players from the London and
South West clubs met at
Bisham Abbey on New Year’s
Eve for medical tests and
check-ups.
And those at Midlands and
northern-based clubs — like
Leicester’s 23-year-old prop
Ellis Genge — went to
Liverpool yesterday for a
similar session.

URGEN KLOPP
puffed out his cheeks
as he contemplated
the question, the relief
that he felt back then
still evident.
J
Liverpool’s manager had been
asked to revisit October 7 or, more
specifically, the 85th minute of his
side’s Premier League clash with
Manchester City at Anfield. Virgil
van Dijk had tripped Leroy Sane
and Riyad Mahrez was presented
with the chance to settle the
season’s first big squabble from
12 yards.
Life is full of ‘what if ’ moments
but it is reasonable to wonder
what way Liverpool’s campaign
would have gone had Mahrez’s
spot-kick ended up in the back of
the net for a 1-0 City victory, rather
than halfway up the Anfield Road
End stand.
Four days earlier, Liverpool had
lost away to Napoli. Back-to-back
defeats would have sent them into
the international break trailing
City by three points and the mood
tense. Could their confidence have
withstood such a blow? Or is it
possible for fortunes to change
with one wayward kick?
‘The game at home was very
special,’ Klopp reflected. ‘It was
full of respect from both sides for
each other, that was clear. Nobody
wanted to really open up because
if you do, they kill you. We will see
but that was too long ago. I don’t
think it was the defining moment
but who knows?
‘Divock Origi’s goal (in the last
minute for a 1-0 victory against
Everton) was also very important.
You cannot be unbeaten so far if
you don’t have luck. You need
luck. We didn’t have a lot in the

years before and not a lot this
season but we had these moments
when Mahrez missed the penalty.
‘We had nothing to do with that.
Then the goal we scored against
Everton gave us the winning
streak. Had neither moment
happened, it would be three points
less in our total and that is still a
good season.’
The thing is, though, a ‘good
season’ could become a magnificent one. If the stakes were high
when the teams met 88 days ago,
they have now intensified. Liverpool are in the driving seat in the
title race — six points clear of
Tottenham and seven ahead of
City — and Klopp knows all about
the opportunities a victory would
conjure.
So, too, does City manager
Pep Guardiola. It is a long time
since he has faced a threat to his
dominance as big as this, the last
occasion being when Barcelona
TIME
and Real Madrid went head-tohead eight years ago and were
separated by three points at the
wire. The pressure is huge.
‘We have to handle it,’ said Guardiola. ‘Maybe people expected we
would always be top but we
are Manchester City. We are not
Liverpool or Manchester United.
We are Manchester City. That is
why it is nice after what we have
achieved in the last decade to still
be up there.’
Guardiola’s last sentence makes
it sound as if last season’s centuri-
ons, with 100 points and 106 goals
and one of the world’s richest
clubs, are punching above their
weight when the reality is they
have become the standardbearers in English football, the
team all those with designs on
being champions need to beat.
Liverpool will not be inhibited by
the advantage they have — Klopp
is not the kind of manager who
would go and throw a blanket over
a game to preserve a lead — and
you got the sense from him yesterday that this fixture will help
him answer a lot of questions. If he
did not want to think about the
consequences of Mahrez’s failure
from 12 yards in the autumn, one
incident that remains in his mind
is Sadio Mane’s red card at the
Etihad in September 2017 — the
Senegal international was sent off
with the score at 1-0 and Liverpool
ended up losing 5-0.
‘It was the defining moment of
last season,’ said Klopp. ‘We were in
a good moment but then we lost a
player and the game and that never
helps. Sadio came back and was
not the same player for a few weeks
because he had three weeks interrupted. That was the situation.’
But they will arrive in a good
moment again. Klopp made no
attempt to disguise his admiration
for City, describing them as ‘the
best team in the world’ to mirror
the words that Guardiola has
offered about Liverpool. It is, of
course, all a pretence and the real
business will play out later.
‘Last season they got 100 points,’

Reports of City’s demise are
exaggerated and they remain an
outstanding team. I don’t see
them losing this. Liverpool,
though, will score — and that
should leave it as a stalemate.

City to take an early lead,
Liverpool to equalise and then,

CHRIS WHEELER
Manchester City 2 Liverpool 2
City need to chase the win which
should be enough to ensure no
repeat of the goalless game at
Anfield. But the champions are
not at their best and will be
vulnerable at the back against a
team as quick and potent on the
break as Liverpool.
Manchester City 2 Liverpool 1
Liverpool are in better form and
have a more settled team than
City, whose key players are
coming back from injury. But the
champions simply have to win,
and will find a way of doing it.
JACK GAUGHAN
Manchester City 3 Liverpool 2
Guardiola has hammered home
the need to be more clinical and
you would think City will heed
that. They will probably require
three goals if the seven-point
gap is to be narrowed.

Klopp has enjoyed great success
against Guardiola over the last 12
months, not least when Liverpool
went to the Etihad in the
second leg of the Champions
League quarter-final and ran out
2-1 winners. What he would give
for a similar score now.
Klopp said: ‘I don’t prepare any
game in the world by saying, “Last

That is just not right. We changed,
they changed, the situation

You can trace the change back to
October. The challenge for Klopp
and his players is make sure the
change, in terms of the title race,
is permanent.
THREE WISE MEN ON THE
TITLE SHOWDOWN
By JAMIE REDKNAPP, MARTIN KEOWN and CHRIS SUTTON
By JAMIE REDKNAPP
IMAGINE you are a Manchester
City player and your manager
is telling you all the things he is
going to change because
Liverpool are coming to town.
Alarm bells would be ringing.
Pep Guardiola should not risk
doing that. He should just focus
on his game and trust in his
philosophy, the one that
turned City into Premier
League champions with a
record points total.
Guardiola’s players get on the
front foot and they’re great at
it. Even if you get beaten, play
your game.
Make tactical tweaks, of
course, but don’t compromise
what you’re good at. City
should be telling themselves
they’re the champions and can
beat anyone if they play the
way they know they can.
Jurgen Klopp is without the
injured Joe Gomez, who would
have made my combined XI
By CHRIS SUTTON
HOW do you call this one?
Liverpool could wallop City
and we wouldn’t be surprised.
City could win by four or five
and we wouldn’t be surprised
either! Both teams can
demolish anyone on their day.
There is still a long way to go
so I don’t think this is must-win
for City. When I won the
Premier League title with
Blackburn in 1994-95 we were
eight points clear with six
games to go but weren’t
crowned as champions until
the last day of the season.
So Liverpool’s seven-point
lead is catchable, especially
when the team chasing are
Pep Guardiola’s City. There will
be teams fighting for their
lives at the end of the season
and Jurgen Klopp could have
to contend with injuries.
Imagine if they lost Virgil van
Dijk or Mohamed Salah? So this
title race will not be over, even
if Liverpool win tonight. But
By MARTIN KEOWN
CITY will have analysed
Liverpool’s 5-1 win over
Arsenal on Saturday and
noticed a few things. They will
have seen Liverpool’s
forwards standing off Arsenal
whenever they had a goal-kick
early in the game. The visiting
defenders would go level with
the six-yard box and, under no
pressure, would be invited to
try to pass it out.
Eventually, Unai Emery had to
bin that tactic because it
became so dangerous for
Arsenal. Would Pep Guardiola
do the same? I think his team
will play his way no matter the
circumstances.
When Liverpool press high
Roberto Firmino is in the front
line and when they build from
the back he drops deep. He is
key to their system. Liverpool’s
two opening goals against
Arsenal came after he carried
the ball with pacemen

alongside Virgil van Dijk if fit,
so that is a small boost for City.
This fixture has a similar feel to
the Champions League second
leg between these two at the
Etihad last season. City are the
home team who will go for it
while Liverpool can wait for
opportunities to pounce.
Guardiola doesn’t get a lot
wrong. For me, he’s the
master, but when City had to
overturn a 3-0 deficit in
Europe last season, he made
mistakes. He played Aymeric
Laporte at left back and
Mohamed Salah had his
number. Laporte could be
tasked with trying to stop the
Egyptian again tonight.
If not, then it could be Danilo

the pressure is certainly on
City more than Liverpool and
Guardiola’s approach will be
interesting.
He set up his team more
conservatively than usual in
their 0-0 draw at Anfield in
October. So will he go all out?
I don’t think he will. Why go
for broke at this stage of the
season? Guardiola does not
fear teams but he certainly
respects them. He is clever
enough to know Liverpool can
punish teams that try to pin
them back. Klopp’s team love
playing on the counter.
It is frightening to think that,
at their current rate, Liverpool
would break City’s 100-point
record from last season. I’m
not so sure that will happen, as

Mane pushed forward on

He doesn’t always have to
pass, of course — his second

City’s centre backs.
I can’t see Liverpool changing
their side considering how
well they played on Saturday.
Guardiola, meanwhile, has
decisions to make. Does he
allow his full backs to bomb
forward when the space they
leave behind will be so inviting
to Salah and Mane? Does he
start Kevin De Bruyne instead
of Bernardo Silva? I think, if fit,
De Bruyne has to feature.

The nerves that get to even the
world’s best players at those
crucial moments. The selfdoubt that creeps in when the
pressure is on.
Guardiola’s nine La Liga championships as a player and coach at
Barcelona did not come as easily
as the three Bundesliga crowns
he added at Bayern munich. He
had some titanic duels, not least
with Real madrid.
It is why there was more than a
hint of hope in the 47-year-old’s
voice yesterday when he suggested that Liverpool’s title
charge may well be interrupted by
the odd stumble as the prize
appears to be within their grasp.
Jurgen Klopp’s side could crack
under the pressure, Guardiola
believes, and he has told his players to be ready when they do.
‘When I lived in Barcelona and
after Bayern munich, I know what
it means for the players,’ he said.
‘I can feel what they feel, the
Liverpool players.

‘I said to the players, that’s difficult to handle. That is why this
season (we have to) maintain

‘For me, that’s an immense and
a huge motivation. Why don’t we
try it, to catch them up and
pressure them?’
No Premier League team have
been able to beat Liverpool so far
this season. City came closest
with Riyad mahrez’s late penalty
miss in a goalless draw at anfield
in October, and tonight at the
Etihad, Guardiola knows they
must seize the opportunity to
close a seven-point gap.
‘We know how important it is,’
he added. ‘It’s almost a final for
us. If we are not able to win, especially if we lose, then 10 points —
goal difference means 11. If they
continue that run it will be so
difficult. It is a big opportunity for
us to reduce the gap. Everyone is
talking if we lose, but what
happens if we win?

Rowett’s problem is that
he has only overseen
eight wins in 26 matches.
Stoke are at Shrewsbury

Why don’t we try it, to catch

When Liverpool last went to the
Etihad Stadium, in the second
leg of last season’s Champions
League quarter-final, Klopp
said he expected a
‘thunderstorm’ from a

procession, Guardiola knows
he is in a very different race this
time round.
He is intrigued to discover how
his players handle the pressure of
chasing from behind after losing
three of their last five Premier
League games.
‘We cannot expect to be 12 or 13
points in front at Christmas,’ he
said. ‘That’s happened once in
our lifetime, last season. But it’s a
new season and the opponent is
so strong. If it is different pressure,
but we have to live it. We have to
handle it.
‘If we want to grow like a club,
like an organisation and like a

kinds of games with the pressure
that means.’
So can City handle it?
‘Honestly, I don’t know, that’s
the point. What do I think? yes,
we are ready. I don’t have doubts
but, honestly, I don’t know.’
Liverpool’s visit to the Etihad
last season ended in a 5-0 thrashing, but Guardiola is refusing to
use that as a guide to tonight’s

ick-off may have
been delayed due
to a false fire
alarm, but that was
no excuse for
Bournemouth and Watford
defenders evacuating the
Vitality Stadium for the
entire first half.
A gloriously bonkers 45 minutes
saw six goals scored from only nine
shots on target, and Watford’s Troy
Deeney summed it up afterwards.
‘Sunday League at best,’ he
deemed the defending, and the
visiting captain wasn’t wrong.
Watford led 2-0, then it was 2-2,
then 3-2, then 3-3, all before the
break. As is often the case, order
was restored in the second half.
Defenders remembered how to
defend and the scoreline did not
budge from then on.
So the spoils were shared, but
this game will be remembered as
the one where the art of defending
temporarily disappeared.
‘The defending from both teams
was Sunday League at best to be
honest,’ said Deeney. ‘Both teams
will look at it as points dropped.
‘i didn’t feel we were fully in
control. it was an end-to-end
game. it could have been 6-6. As
entertainers we’re happy, but not
as professionals. The only people
who are happy are the fans.’
Deeney got the craziness going
when he directed a free header
into the far corner from ken
Sema’s cross.
Gerard Deulofeu was wearing
gloves, long sleeves and black
tights, as if he had been warned
about the South coast’s cold
climate. But when he collected a
loose ball from Bournemouth’s
Dan Gosling inside his own half,
the Spaniard warmed up.
The 24-year-old sprinted for goal
and only a Steve cook challenge
denied him as he was about to pull
the trigger. But the ball trickled
into Deeney’s path to make it 2-0.
Watford were lucky to still have
11 men after Abdoulaye Doucoure
stuck his studs into Ryan fraser
during a 50-50 tackle. Referee
David coote produced a yellow
but replays showed it should have
been red.
And the first-half drama was far
from over. Between the 34th and

The celebrations were shortlived. With a whack of his left foot,

bottom corner after Junior

the build-up. So 3-3 at half-time.
Harry Redknapp, the former
Bournemouth boss and I’m A

from the stands. He would know

‘Lads, please defend’, would have
sufficed and here, the players
listened. Gosling was fortunate to
escape with only a caution when

MAYBE Jordan Ayew’s ears were
burning. With news that Crystal
Palace are readying a new bid
for Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi,
Ayew produced a finish of
composure not seen before
from him this season.
The Palace striker (below)
controlled Patrick van Aanholt’s
errant shot with one touch,
then sent the ball past Rui
Patricio with his second. It was
Ayew’s first of the season and,
coming seven minutes before
the end, was well timed.
It sent Palace on their way to a

to the Liverpool forward.

mind in our favour. These are
things you accept as a manager.’
Wolves are also in the market

They have experienced

As West Ham fell 2-0 down early
in the second half, this seemed to
be another. And then, with all his
magnificent power and talent,
Arnautovic came to life.
He scored twice and rescued
West Ham from a miserable start

started in the 66th minute as he
received a pass over the top from
substitute Mark Noble. Confronted by the physicality of Shane
Duffy, Arnautovic was not overawed. He backed in, won the tussle
and slid the ball underneath
Brighton keeper David Button.
Within two minutes, the scores
were level as Noble combined with
fellow substitute, Michail Antonio,
who scurried to the byline and
pulled back for Arnautovic to stab
home his second. Now the

The pre-match excitement was
to be found on the West Ham team
sheet, where Andy Carroll started
up front for the first time since
January 2 last year. Samir Nasri,
meanwhile, made the bench
following the end of his 18-month
drugs ban although he did not
make an appearance.
Carroll is now 29 and this felt like
an important evening for the
forward. Sadly, service was rare.
Carroll’s first significant act was
to turn a West Ham counter-attack
into a Brighton set-piece and his
influence did not grow much from
there. He had the fewest number
of touches on the field, completing
four of eight attempted passes,
and was substituted at half-time.
‘He had stitches on his eye,’
Pellegrini said. ‘But we did not
create chances in the first half. We
tried to make another way of
attacking. It was a tactical and
physical change.’
West Ham’s first sight of goal
came in the 24th minute when
Felipe Anderson’s snap-shot was
held by Button. Arnautovic’s
curler tested the keeper too, but
the Austrian was clearly saving his
greatest impact for later on.

C
helsea started the
day by splashing out
£58million on one of
the world’s most
in- demand young
forwards and ended it with
a gathering injury crisis and
a critical shortage of options
up front.
Maurizio sarri found it hard to
conceal his exasperation as he
learned a little more about the
peculiarities of management at
stamford Bridge as his team
were unable to find a way past
southampton.
sarri’s team were held to a goalless draw and, although they
remain fourth, they are 10 points
behind leaders liverpool and with
arsenal and Manchester United
closing ominously behind.
The battle for the top four is
warming up and Chelsea’s problems deepened when Willian
limped out in the first half to be
replaced by Ruben loftus-Cheek.
also on the bench was Cesc Fabregas, together with a goalkeeper
and four defenders.
Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Callum hudson-Odoi were all ruled
out with injuries. None of the
absentees are expected to long
term but the immediate concern
remains and is not solved by Christian Pulisic, who has signed from
Borussia Dortmund but will spend
the rest of the season on loan with
the Bundesliga club.
‘I’m not in charge of the market,’
said sarri. ‘so for me it’s very
difficult to speak about the
market or the deal of Pulisic. The
board knows very well my opinion.
I think we need some different
characteristics.
‘It was really very difficult for me
because Pedro, Giroud, Odoi were
out and after 35 minutes Willian
was out. On the bench I had only
one offensive player, loftus-Cheek
but he is not 100 per cent because
he has back trouble.
‘It was really very difficult to try
to change the match in the last 30
minutes. at the moment we are
in trouble with the offensive
players.’
as ever, there is a wealth of talent
out on loan, including strikers
Tammy abraham and Michy
Batshuayi. Chelsea will continue
with their quest to sign a centre
forward in this month’s transfer
market but there were times
against southampton when they
looked like a side which could have
used fresh ideas or a new impetus.
They dominated possession and
battered away at southampton
without finding a way through.
When alvaro Morata hit the net
with 20 minutes to go his goal was
ruled out for offside.
Referee Jonathan Moss also
waved away an enthusiastic
penalty appeal in stoppage time
when Marcos alonso tumbled a
little too easily under a challenge
from behind by shane long.
There was desperation in the air
by this stage and southampton
had earned a touch of good
fortune and a first clean sheet in
11 Premier league games. They
came to defend and did well with
heroes including goalkeeper angus
Gunn on his Premier league debut
and 19-year-old Yan Valery, who
was handed the unenviable task of
stopping eden hazard.
Valery can take great satisfaction
from his efforts. as can the trio of
centre halves who withstood a late
barrage and captain Oriol Romeu,
who shielded his defence against
his former club.
southampton boss Ralph
hasenhuttl was delighted with the
shift from his players and greeted
the final whistle by clenching both
fists and letting out a triumphant
roar. his team slipped into the bottom three because Burnley won at
huddersfield but his first six fixtures have produced a win against
arsenal and a draw at Chelsea.
‘It was a fantastic performance,’
said hasenhuttl. ‘We changed eight
players and that was because three
times in a week we cannot do this
job. It was important. Otherwise
we couldn’t defend it as we did.
You sometimes need a good goalkeeper or a bit of luck. There is so
much quality in Chelsea’s side.’

Blues land £58m Pulisic as Hazard insurance
CHELSEA have completed the
£58million signing of Christian
Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund
and installed their contingency
plan in case Eden Hazard leaves
in the summer.
USA international Pulisic will
spend the rest of the season at
Dortmund before making the
switch, by which time Hazard will
have just 12 months remaining on
his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard is prepared to delay a
final decision on his future until
the season is over as he waits on
a signal from Real Madrid.
Chelsea were determined to
strike early for 20-year-old
Pulisic, 20, to beat competition
from rivals, including Liverpool

and Arsenal, and have paid a
premium on the price for a
player with a contract due to
expire at the end of next season
Only Kepa Arrizabalaga and
Alvaro Morata have cost the
club more.
But it avoids the added pressure
and price hikes which will
inevitably occur if Hazard is sold
and it addresses the lingering
threat of a transfer ban as FIFA
continue to investigate Chelsea
for allegations of wrongdoing in
relation to the international
transfer of Under 16s.

The Belgian had watched for 63
minutes as his team-mates toiled,
a shadow of the side who had
smashed 12 goals in three games
since being freed from Jose Mourinho’s smothering presence.
United had a free-kick 25 yards
from goal as Lukaku — joined by
fellow sub Alexis Sanchez — trotted into position. Marcus Rashford took aim and when his dipping effort bounced just in front of
Martin Dubravka, Lukaku
pounced to take advantage of the
goalkeeper’s spill.

But the Norwegian will need to
pass sterner tests than this before
he is seriously considered for a
permanent stay.
Gary Neville said before the
game that he feels ‘sad’ for Newcastle. He would not have changed
his opinion come the end.
Rafa Benitez has long been criticised for the negative tactics he
employs against the top clubs. His
argument has always been that he
is managing the meagre resources
available to him and he has a point
given the club have returned a
£2million profit over the past three
transfer windows.
Yet here was a first-half performance in which they matched the
visitors, even bettering them in
terms of chances created.
The inclusion of Phil Jones at
centre back for United as replacement for the suspended Eric Bailly
had perhaps given the hosts hope
and they sought to exploit the
space behind a leaden-footed
backline.
Fabian Schar’s early hoist forward saw Christian Atsu give
chase and trap the dropping ball
with a touch belying his £5million
fee. Benitez, though, says you can
add a zero to the cost of any player
who can put the ball in the net —
Atsu’s subsequent shot threatening the corner flag.
Another Newcastle punt left
Jones in a spin and Ayoze Perez
stole in to send Salomon Rondon
clear, only for the dithering
defender to recover.
Paul Pogba was seeking to
become only the second player,
after Cristiano Ronaldo, to score
two goals or more in three straight
Premier League matches for
United but a 20-yard shot which
bobbled wide on the half-hour
mark was as close as he came.
Atsu had another chance in the
second half but fired across goal,
while Perez was robbed in a oneon-one with David De Gea by his
own heavy touch, which allowed
Luke Shaw to block the shot.
Jonjo Shelvey then tested De
Gea with a low drive from range.
United needed a lucky break and
got it thanks to Dubravka’s misfortune and Lukaku’s gamble.
Shelvey should have then seen
red for a high boot on Pogba that
went unpunished.
It was United who punished
Newcastle as they grew ragged
and Sanchez rolled a ball through
for Rashford to slide home.
The substitutes changed the game
— not the first time we’ve said that
where Solskjaer is concerned.

Ole’s making his pitch for the job
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER admitted he
does not want to leave Manchester
United in the summer.
Victory at Newcastle meant Solskjaer
continued his 100 per cent start as
interim boss and he said. ‘I don’t want to
(leave) — of course I won’t. It’s such a
great bunch of players, fantastic
atmosphere, but it’s the next game, it’s
the next game. I’m doing my job as long
as I’m here. If you win four you can win
another four with this club. That’s the
challenge, that’s the standard we know.
That used to be the challenge from the
gaffer (Sir Alex Ferguson).’
Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring
seconds after coming off the bench and
Marcus Rashford — whose free-kick
made Lukaku’s goal — hit the second. ‘He
was composed and just passed it past the
goalkeeper,’ Solskjaer said of the
21-year-old. ‘But his free-kicks ... the first
one against Cardiff, and then he does it
again, he’s got a great hit. He must have
been watching Cristiano Ronaldo.’

Astonishing £44k-plus
paid in car allowance
From Back Page
PFA’s employers’
National Insurance
contributions cost
£271,300. On top of this,
the 74-year-old
received a staggering
£44,516 car allowance,
£6,870 private medical
cover and over £3,000
in telephone allowance.
The overall pay package
of £2.29m — or £44,000
a week — is a slight
increase on 2017,
suggesting that
criticism of his lucrative
salary was ignored.
There is likely to be
further anger at this
year’s salary,
particularly when the
accounts show the PFA
spent just £125,000 on
funding head injury
research, via a
contribution to
Football’s Influence on
Lifelong Health and
Dementia Risk.
The total spent on
grants was £17.4m in
2018, while the
amount spent on
‘consultancy fees’
jumped from £11,000 to
almost £40,000.
Big money: Taylor
Accounts show that the
PFA has assets of over
£64m, including £8.4m
worth of freehold
property and £9.7m
worth of memorabilia.
Taylor has recently
come under intense
pressure to stand down,
due in large part to the
fallout of a challenge to
his position by new
chairman Ben Purkiss in
the latter half of 2018.
Taylor’s salary is
decided by the business
advisory committee of
the PFA’s charitable
trust, with former Port
Vale and Rochdale
defender Gareth
Griffiths seemingly
having the ultimate
responsibility.
Bellamy to be grilled
over bullying claims
CARDIFF CITY will
investigate allegations of
bullying and anti-English
behaviour made against
Under 18s head coach
Craig Bellamy.
The Premier League
club have been waiting
for senior staff to return
to work after the Christmas and New Year period
before beginning their
probe, which is set to be
handled by chief executive Ken Choo.
Sportsmail revealed
this week that a complaint has been made by
an academy player, who
is now training away from
the club.
Bellamy has taken training this week but will be
spoken to when the club
look into the accusations.
The club also noted
Sportsmail’s report
By CRAIG HOPE
yesterday in which the
parents of a former academy player claimed that
Bellamy bullied their son,
forcing them to remove
him from the club amid
concerns for his welfare.
David Madden, a former
FA Cup finalist with
Crystal Palace, said his
son, Alfie, became
‘desperately unhappy’
working under Bellamy.
When the case was
discussed on talkSPORT
yesterday, Madden contacted the station to
make the point that his
son was not soft.
‘(Bellamy) should not
be involved in kids’ football,’ Madden said. ‘If
you’re like that with men
it’s different. But this was
a 17-year-old boy.’

EXCLUSIVE

same ‘scandalous’ £2.2million
pay package in his role as chief
executive of the Professional
Footballers’ Association last
year, despite the furore it
caused when the 2017 accounts
were published.
The near-£1m pay rise that was
revealed last February attracted
widespread criticism, with
former England defender
Graeme Le Saux describing the
pay package for the union boss
as ‘absolutely scandalous’.
But Sportsmail can reveal that
Taylor, who has been accused of

CODEWORD
EACH number in our Codeword grid represents a different letter of the alphabet.
For example, today 12 represents V, so fill in V every time the figure 12 appears.
You have two letters in the control grid to start you off. Enter them in the
appropriate squares in the main grid, then use your knowledge of words to work
out which letters should go in the missing squares. As you get the letters, fill in
other squares with the same number in the main grid and control grid. Check off
the list of alphabetical letters as you identify them. Solution in tomorrow’s paper.

without repeating
any number in any
line of blank
squares. The lines
must be filled in
with numbers
which add up to the

AS YOU move into
ARIES Mar 21 — Apr 20 the
New Year with
your ruler, Mars, in your sign, the sky has
your best interests at heart. You’re being
supported by the cosmos, and that’s being
reflected by the quality of understanding
you have in your social life, too. There are
opportunities ahead and also financial
possibilities. If you’re not yet feeling the
‘oomph’, rather than being disappointed,
try focusing on the potential available to
you today. It holds a small treasure that
can grow into something really valuable.

HAVING a stubborn
streak is no bad
thing. In fact, it’s a trait that should be more
widely applauded. Too many people crumble
under pressure and change their opinions as
easily as they change their clothes. Yet as you
feel compelled to defend a strongly felt belief,
ask yourself whether you’re right to stand
firm. Is this an occasion when a compromise
might be more effective? You could try
making a minor concession and see how it
feels. You’ll be able to resume your stance
later if necessary. Happy New Year! For a

you ready for a New Year? Because there’s
no going back. Neither can you reverse a

unsettled. A situation is moving on and, as
you settle into 2019, you’ll grow more at
ease with it. Yet in your heart you know
you’re on the right track. Today, with
Uranus, the planet of unexpected change,
stationary in the sky, gentle steps forward

towards attaining what you desire. You

step back for long enough to stop making

SCORPIO Oct 24 — Nov 22 PERSPECTIVE
changes
everything. We view things differently
depending on how we want to see them and
what we want them to be. Which, as long as
we’re feeling positive, is all well and good.
But we’re equally capable of looking through
shaded, dark glasses and giving things an
unnecessarily dark tint. The approaching
partial Solar Eclipse suggests that a glimmer
of hope can be nourished into becoming a
tangible aspiration. Just a change of
approach will make your future brighter.

throws up inevitable questions. Are you
where you’re meant to be? What should you
be focusing on? We can spend a lifetime trying
to answer these questions. Some people
invest all their energy trying to be in the ‘right
place’ at the ‘right time’. Few, though, are left
with a feeling of success. The answer is to have
confidence that whatever you’re doing right
now, wherever you’re doing it, is right. From
this starting point, failure is impossible. Don’t
doubt yourself today. You’re on the right path.

WHAT do
people mean
when they say ‘there’s no time like the
present’? And when exactly is ‘the present’?
The present of 1562 (when this saying was
first recorded) was very different to the
present of 2019. Perhaps, then, just to be on
the safe side, you should delay what’s going
on now in case it’s meant to be different.
Actually, ignore that! If a delay is in your
best interests, the universe will conspire to
create it. Treat any obstacle as a blessing

to follow. Happy New Year! For a special
