Migrant curb plan ‘worse than useless’
HOME Office plans for
curbing post-Brexit
migration are “worse than
useless”, a think tank said
last night.
Migration Watch said there
would still be free movement
for EU citizens to come to
the UK and possibly wider
access for skilled and
semi-skilled migrants from
outside the block.
The “White Paper” policy
document unveiled by Home
Secretary Sajid Javid
reiterated the Tories’
election pledge to reduce
annual net migration to
below 100,000.

analysis, published last
night, said there were no
measures to cap migration.
The group’s chairman,
crossbench peer Lord
Green of Deddington, said:
“These measures are worse
than useless.
“They are so extensive as
to be unenforceable by a
Home Office that cannot
even enforce the present
system and is evading its
responsibility to fulfil
manifesto promises.
“The Government have
simply caved in to the
employers’ lobby. This White
Paper is a betrayal of all
those who voted for Brexit
in the expectation
that immigration would
be reduced.
“At 160 pages this must
be, for the Conservatives,
the longest suicide note in
their history.”
The Home Office said: “For
the first time in a generation,
we will have control of our
immigration system.
“The new skills-based
system will allow us to
attract the talented workers
we need, but everyone
coming to the UK for work or
study will need to get
permission before doing so.”
‘Brexit betrayal’...Lord Green
Double blow to May’s
hope of Brexit victory
9pDXZ\i?XccGfc`k`ZXc<[`kfi
THERESA May suffered a
double rebuff over her Brexit
plans yesterday on her first
day back in Downing Street
since Christmas.
In a frosty meeting at
Number 10, her Democratic
Unionist Party allies restated
their threat to oppose her
EU withdrawal deal in a
crunch
Commons
vote
expected within a fortnight.
And an EU official warned
that the package on offer
“will not be renegotiated”
despite widespread opposition from MPs.
The Prime Minister, who
made a series of phone calls
to EU leaders including
the
German
Chancellor
Angela Merkel over the holidays, will intensify her diplomatic efforts to win concessions from Brussels.
She will also invite all Tory
MPs to two drinks receptions
in Downing Street next week
as part of a charm offensive
to try to win backing for her
The EU’s Mina Andreeva
deal. But pressure is understood to be growing on Mrs
May to postpone the socalled “meaningful vote” in
the Commons on her deal for
a second time.
Mrs May met DUP deputy
leader Nigel Dodds and other
senior figures from the Northern Ireland party yesterday
in her effort to ease concerns
over the “backstop” Irish
border mechanism.
But after their talks, Mr
DFJKKFI@<JN8EKEF$;<8C<L<O@K
MORE than half of grassroots Tories want Theresa
May’s Brexit plan to be
dropped in favour of a nodeal departure from the
EU, a survey has revealed.
Research by teams at
Queen Mary University of
London and Sussex University found that 57 per
cent of Conservative party
members think leaving
with no withdrawal agreement would be preferable
to the PM’s proposals.
Fewer than a quarter (23
per cent) of those quizzed
would vote for her deal in a
referendum
offering
a
three-way choice between
the deal, no deal and
remaining in the EU.
The findings will come
as a fresh blow to Mrs May
ahead of the crunch Commons vote on the deal
scheduled for the week
beginning January 14.
Professor Tim Bale, who
led the research team
which questioned 1,215 of
the
estimated
124,000
members, said: “The Tory
rank and file, it seems, are
convinced that no-deal is
better than May’s deal.”

Dodds issued a statement
insisting the DUP still had
“principled objections” to
the proposal.
“Contrary to pro-EU spin,
the backstop is not the best
of both worlds,” he said.
“It is potentially indefinite
in time, would place a barrier
between us and our main
trading partner in Great
Britain and give enormous
leverage to the European
Union in the negotiations on
the future relationship with
the United Kingdom.”
Earlier yesterday, an EU
official played down the prospect of further talks to find a
way of defusing opposition to
the backstop, the insurance
mechanism
designed
to
guarantee an open border
between Northern Ireland
and the Irish Republic after
Brexit.
Mina Andreeva, a spokeswoman for European Commission
president
JeanClaude Juncker, said “no
further meetings are foreseen” to discuss the deal.
“We are not renegotiating
what is on the table,” she
said.
With the deadlock continuing, EU Exit Secretary
Stephen Barclay yesterday
held a meeting with junior
ministers from a string of
Whitehall departments to
instruct them on contingency measures needed to be
ready for a no-deal exit.

BRITAIN remains the
second most powerful
country in the world after
the US, according to a
global affairs think-tank.
The league table is
based on assessments of
economic, military and
diplomatic strengths.
Britain’s
position
is
unchanged since last year
and is followed by China,
France and Germany.
Coming weeks before
Brexit, the accolade is
likely to be seen as a
rebuke to politicians and
commentators who claim
that the 2016 referendum
result has led to a decline
in the country’s international influence.
The
Henry
Jackson
Society described Britain
as “a truly global power” in
its annual report to be
published today.
Author James Rogers
said claims about Britain’s
decline were “wholly without foundation”.
He said: “Brexit has had
no discernible impact on
the UK’s fundamental
ability to apply itself
around the world.”
LE@M<IJ@KP?FJG@K8CJFLK?8DGKFE$:C8I@=@:8KFE
In a column published on 02 May
2018, Ann Widdecombe said that the
judgment of the doctors in the case
of Ashya King, was pursued through
the courts and “turned out to be
comprehensively wrong”.
We have been contacted by
University Hospital Southampton,
where Ashya received treatment to
remove a medulloblastoma brain
tumour. The hospital says the family
wanted Ashya to receive proton beam
therapy, but NHS England did not
recommend or fund the use of this
therapy for Ashya’s type of cancer as
it believed there was no proven
significant benefit. The hospital has
asked us to record that before Ashya
left its care, it had nevertheless
agreed to refer him to receive proton
beam therapy privately.
The hospital has also asked us to
make clear that this disagreement
about treatment was not the issue
that was pursued through the courts.
It says that the court proceedings
were filed by Portsmouth City
Council, who wanted Ashya made a
ward of the court, as doctors had
concerns for his welfare. For
example, he was dependent on a
nasogastric tube for food among
other medical needs, and doctors
were concerned that this could not
be safely managed outside a
hospital.

REUNITING Downton Abbey’s
stars for its big screen adaptation was nothing short of a
“miracle”, actor Hugh Bonneville
has revealed.
Filming for the highly anticipated film, due out later this year,
finally got underway last September, three years after the hit ITV
show ended.
Producers had a mammoth
task juggling the cast’s conflicting schedules because the success of the period drama meant
the actors are in demand.
“There was always talk about
us doing a movie,” said 55-yearold Bonneville, who plays the
family patriarch Robert Crawley,
Earl of Grantham.
“There were a couple of situations with the script and we
were all in different places across
the world.
“When we all got back together
in the summer I said, ‘It is a bit of
a miracle that we are all here
back together.’ It is rare. It won’t
happen again.”
Downton’s creator Julian Fel-
lowes previously said the greatest
challenge for the project has been
“rounding up the actors who have
now gone off to the four corners
of the Earth, in Hollywood, on
Broadway, doing plays, doing
series, and so on”.
But the film, which takes place
in late 1927 more than a year and
a half after the events depicted in
the series finale, will see many of
the original line-up return.
Michelle Dockery will reprise
her role as Lady Mary Crawley
alongside Laura Carmichael as
Lady Edith, Elizabeth McGovern,
who plays Bonneville’s on-screen
wife Lady Cora, Dame Maggie
Smith as the irrepressible Dowager Countess and Allen Leech as
Tom Branson.
Bonneville added: “It was a
marvellous experience and every
department was absolutely at
the peak of their game. It was a
fantastic cast. The production
vales were very high.
“It was great to be back. Some
of the characters weren’t there
as unfortunately they were not
in the script. It was
not that they turned
it down.”
Cast members not
returning include Ed
Speelers
as
footman
Jimmy Kent but perhaps
the biggest absence is Lily
James, who played Lady
Rose before finding stardom
in films such as Mamma Mia!
Here We Go Again.
Downton Abbey, the film, is
due for release in cinemas on
September 13.
No date to wed...but Sheridan’s happy engaged
Sheridan on TV yesterday
SHERIDAN Smith has revealed that
she has yet to set a date for her big
day after getting engaged following a
whirlwind romance.
The 37-year-old actress said she has
no plans to walk down the aisle with
her beau Jamie Horn, 28, who she met
through an online dating app. Three
months later the pair were engaged.
Cilla star Sheridan has moved to
the countryside with her insurance
broker fiance for a more relaxed way
of life. Yesterday on ITV’s This
9pC`qG\ib`ej
Morning she said that she had little
time to plan her wedding.
She told hosts Ruth Langsford
and Eamonn Holmes: “I’m just
going to enjoy being engaged for now.
I can’t believe it, someone’s going
to have me!
“When he asked my mum for my
hand in marriage she said, ‘Are you
sure you can handle her?’ I’m in a
really good place, I feel really happy.”
Sheridan, who is sporting a £10,000
engagement ring, struggled in the
wake of her dad Colin’s death in 2016
and later suffered a breakdown.
The actress, who is returning to the
small screen in a new drama series
Cleaning Up, has moved out of
London and is enjoying a quieter life
in the countryside with a menagerie
of pets including dogs and donkeys.
She said: “I’ve got four donkeys,
seven dogs, I’m a country girl now.
I’ve got farmer boots and everything.
I feel like I’ve got that normality and
sanity. I go back and I sit with
the dogs and the donkeys and if
you’re having a bad day they don’t
judge you.”
Sheridan said she was excited
about the future and had a number
of projects in the pipeline.
“I’m missing the action now,” she
said. “I’ve got lots of exciting parts
coming up.”
¬ ÊCleaning Up starts on ITV on
Wednesday, January 9, at 9pm.

Doctors warn
blood pressure
patients: Keep
taking the pills
Pack containing blood pressure pills made by the firm at the centre of the alert

medicines, Accord Healthcare, previously called Actavis.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
yesterday announced it pulled the four
batches of the tablets as a “precautionary measure”.
Strict guidance has been issued to
pharmacists telling them to stop
supplying pills from the affected
batches “immediately”.
The MHRA ordered: “Quarantine all
remaining stock and return it to your
supplier using your supplier’s approved
process.”
NHS figures for England in 2017 show
more than 150,000 prescriptions were
issued for the drug.
The irbesartan component of the
pills helps to relax blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily, and the
hydrochlorothiazide helps get rid of
extra salt and water in the body.
The contamination of the tablets
is believed to have happened as a
result of changes to the manufacturing
process.
MHRA made clear that there is “no
evidence” the impurity has caused any
harm to patients.
It also said that not all irbesartan
containing products are affected.

PRISONERS could pay less
than the public to call loved ones
under a controversial £10million
in-cell telephone scheme, the
Daily Express can reveal.
Officials will slash the price
for inmates pay to use private
phones after striking a deal
with BT.
Convicts are expected to pay
as little as 8p per minute to call
a landline and 18p to ring a
mobile under the scheme.
That compares with the
50p-per-minute cost relatives
must pay to call someone staying
in NHS hospitals. Until late 2017,
the Government’s controversial
universal credit helpline cost 55p
per minute.
And the standard BT household tariff currently charges 15p
per minute for a call to a
landline.
Officials plan to install in-cell
telephones in 30 prisons over the
next 14 months in a bid to reduce
tension on prison landings and
improve re-offending rates.
But critics last night warned
the phone scheme was rewarding
bad behaviour amid fears violence and drug use in Britain’s
jails is spiralling out of control.
Former Tory minister Andrew
Percy said: “If anyone deserves
a cost-of-living cut, it is law-abiding members of the public, not
criminals.
“They should pay what they

without first consulting their doctor or
pharmacist.
Another
blood
pressure
drug,
Valsartan, had to be pulled from the
shelves globally last year because a
very similar chemical, NDMA, had
contaminated the drug’s production at
the Chinese supplier Zhejiang Huahai.
Seven batches of the drug were
recalled last July across Europe. The
US took the same step two weeks
later.
A further recall was issued by the
MHRA over more batches of Valsartan
in November.
Dr Sam Atkinson, director of MHRA’s
Inspection, Enforcement and Standards Division, said: “Our highest priority is making sure the medicines you
take are safe.
“Our investigation into potential
contamination is ongoing.”

Ambulance patients waited
hour for hospital handover
NEARLY 2,000 ambulance patients
had to wait at least an hour to be
handed to hospital staff during Christmas week, figures show.
NHS England’s weekly operational
update showed 9.8 per cent of patients
– 9,717 – had an ambulance handover
delay of more than 30 minutes during
the week from Christmas Eve, down
from 17.3 per cent last year.
Some 1,830 patients waited more
than an hour, up from 1,744
the previous week, and 1,491
the week before.
It is equal to 1.8 per cent
of ambulance handovers
taking longer than an hour,
down from 4.8 per cent –
4,734 patients – in the same
week last year. Eight hospital trusts had to temporar-
JG<:@8C
9pIpXe?ffg\i
ily turn away ambulances from A&E at
least once in the week ending December 30 – up from seven the previous
week, but down from 13 the week
before.
Christmas week bed occupancy was
87.5 per cent – down from 91.2 per cent
– and from 93.4 per cent for the previous two weeks.
Stephanie Aiken of the
Royal College of Nursing
said: “Having to wait in an
ambulance because A&E
is already dangerously
overcrowded is distressing, not just for patients
but also for staff.”
But NHS England said
most patients would have
been moved into the hospital and attended by a
paramedic during a delay.
Soft justice: MP Sir William Cash
are paying now for this new service, not have their bad behaviour
rewarded with a cut. They are
getting an improvement by
getting the phone, so they
shouldn’t be rewarded with a
reduced call-rate.
“If anyone is going to get a
cost-of-living cut, it should be
law-abiding members of the
public.”
Conservative MP Sir William
Cash said: “There seems to be no
justification for such a reduction
and it appears no attempt is
being made to justify it.
“Prison is about justice and
punishment for crime. This is a
step too far. This is an invitation
to criminals to believe that the
prison service has gone soft.
“What we really need is stronger
sentences.”
Ministry of Justice sources
said prisoners will benefit from
cheaper deals because officials
have struck a deal with BT which
takes into account the greater
number of calls from jails.
A source added: “BT and the
prison service are keen to make
the calls as reasonable as possible and working together on the
in-cell telephony and looked at
the call rates as part of that.”
Prisoners will only be able
to call a small number of preapproved numbers. All conversations will be recorded and anyone
caught using them for crime or to

intimidate victims or witnesses
will be banned from using them
in the future, officials say.
Answering a written question
from Lord German on what plans
the Ministry of Justice has to
reduce phone call costs, the Government’s justice spokesman in
the House of Lords, Lord Keen,
said: “The prisons PINphone system is not comparable to any
other public payphone service. It
requires significant investment
to meet specific requirements
and delivery into prisons and is
reflected in the cost of calls.
“That said, HMPPS [the prison
service] is keen to make calls as
reasonable as is possible and is
therefore working on a programme to extend the availability of in-cell telephony so that by
March 2020 there are 50 public
sector prisons with phones in
cells with call rates reduced.”
The Prison Reform Trust highlighted figures showing that the
cost of calls to landlines will be
around 8p while calls to mobiles
will be around 18p. Currently,
prisoners using payphones pay
around 8.4p per minute to call a
landline and 18.4p to call a
mobile.
Officials stressed that prisoners receive a very basic, restricted,
service including recorded calls
and that millions of people will
actually pay less than 8p for
phone calls because they are
included in package deals.
A BT spokeswoman said: “We
don’t feel it’s appropriate for us
to provide a comment given it is
the MoJ which sets the policies
around how prisoners are treated,
including call rates, and that
these are set in line with the
MoJ’s requirements.”

simply cannot be right for
relatives to be worried about
the cost when they are
visiting loved ones in
hospital. It has to stop.”
Liz McAnulty, of The
Patients Association, said:
“It is unacceptable for
people calling someone
in hospital to be charged
heavily for 70 seconds
before they even get through.
“Phone contact can be
hugely valuable and
reassuring to people in
hospital and their loved
ones at home.
“Any facility to provide this
must offer a high-quality
service at a fair price, but
Hospedia’s service appears
to fail these tests badly.”
Former Liberal Democrat
leader Tim Farron has
also previously accused
hospitals of treating patients
as “cash cows”.
The Department of Health
has relaxed rules about using
mobile phones in hospitals
in a bid to help patients
avoid sky-high costs.

Shepherd has been

Conflict and crisis in Britain’s jails
Justice Secretary David Gauke
5
VIOLENCE in Britain’s prison system is
soaring, with the Chief Inspector of
Prisons last year condemning the “most
disturbing conditions ever seen” in jails.
Years of under-investment had seen
violence and drug use rise and squalid
living conditions become increasingly
prevalent, Peter Clarke warned in a
damning report last July.
Just months later, it emerged assaults
and self-harming in jails had increased
by 20 per cent to record levels.
Prison officers were assaulted nearly
10,000 times, 947 of which were serious.
Some 49,565 self-harm incidents were
recorded by officials last year – an
increase of 20 per cent.
Speaking after the figures were
released in October, Justice Secretary
David Gauke vowed to “bring down the
unacceptable levels of violence in our
prisons” as the Government attempted
to go on the front foot over the problem.
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
Mr Gauke also pledged to take on “kingpins” operating within jails by introducing dedicated search teams to root out
drugs, weapons and illegal contraband
such as mobile phones.
K\ej`fej
Mobiles and drugs are blamed for the
vast majority of violence in jails. In-cell
telephones are seen as an important
step to reduce tensions on gangways.
It is hoped they will prevent prisoners
attacking one another in queues waiting
to use the telephone.
Officials fear criminals are able to use
mobiles to bring in drugs and then hook
fellow lags on the substances.
It comes as prisoner-on-prisoner
assaults continued to rise last year,
reaching a record high of 23,448. Some
3,063 were considered serious assaults.
The
watchdog’s
scathing
report
condemned the state of the UK prison
system as Mr Clarke blamed “repeated
patterns of failure”.
He said dirty conditions had become
the norm.
Mr Clarke, a former senior police
officer, went on: “I realise that in recent
years many prisons, short of staff and
investment, have struggled to maintain
even basic standards of safety and
decency. Some prisons, in very difficult
circumstances, have made valiant
efforts to improve.
“Others, sadly, have failed to tackle
the basic problems of violence, drugs
and disgraceful living conditions that
have beset so many jails in recent years.
“I have seen instances where both staff
and prisoners alike seem to have become
inured to conditions that should not be
accepted in 21st-century Britain.”
Over 55s
have a few
regrets...
ALMOST a third of the
baby-boomer generation
regret rushing to marry
and settle down with
their life partner.
Some 30 per cent of
those quizzed in a poll
wish they had “shopped
around” before going
into their relationship,
while one in five felt they
should have waited
before having children.
The study for
retirement homes
specialists Park Homes
by Willerby found a third
plan to splash the cash
during retirement
Some 2,000 people
aged between 55 and 75
were quizzed. On an
upbeat note most (58 per
cent) believe they are
having more fun now and
relish the confidence that
later life brings.

£1,600...price we pay for not
switching to cheaper deals
HOUSEHOLDS are set to lose out by
nearly £1,600 this year because they fail
to move their mortgages and credit
cards to cheaper deals.
Overall, Britons’ financial “paralysis”
will cost them £18.7billion, economist
David Hillier has calculated.
Failing to change cards or consolidate credit card debts costs customers
£10.5billion a year alone.
And not moving to a cheaper
personal loan incurs a £5.7billion
penalty per year while mortgage payers
not on a fixed-rate deal are losing
£2.5billion annually, he said.
Professor Hillier, of Strathclyde Business School, said: “The scale of personal finance paralysis and its impact
on households and the economy is
cause for concern.
Ki`^^\i
“Consumers aren’t entirely rational,
and financial decisions are influenced
by the information available to them,
cognitive limitations and the finite
amount of time available to make a
decision.
“Many consumers operate under the
assumption that making no decision
is preferable to making the ‘wrong’
decision.
“But by failing to pull the trigger,
consumers lose thousands of pounds.”
His research, sponsored by online
lending group Freedom Finance, found
that 45 per cent of Britons feel
overwhelmed or anxious at the idea
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
JfZ`Xc8]]X`ij:fii\jgfe[\ek
of making important money decisions.
This led to 38 per cent regularly delaying or not making the right choices.
Younger generations are twice as
likely as baby boomers to suffer from
personal finance paralysis.
Almost half of 18 to 24-year-olds and
50 per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds admit
to feeling nervous or apprehensive
about dealing with a mortgage or
a loan. Only 22 per cent of those aged
55-plus feel the same.
On average, people comparing
personal finance options begin to feel
overwhelmed by the process and give
up after just 21 minutes, the survey
found.
It also found that a quarter of
consumers avoid making personal
finance
decisions
because they worry they
will not qualify for a lending product and their
credit score will be
affected.
Brian Brodie, chief
executive of Freedom
Finance, said: “Consumers seeking financial lending products
feel blinded by choice.
“Our industry must
tackle
personal
finance
paralysis by providing tailored
options for individual consumers,”
he added.

The New Year’s Day win
follows a series of highprofile lottery prizes in

became the biggest lottery
winners in the UK, and
across Europe, when they
scooped more than

Hate preacher Abu Qatada
BRITAIN has spent close to
£200,000 protecting hate
preacher Abu Qatada after
his deportation to Jordan, it
was claimed last night.
Following his departure
from the country in 2013, the
Government has spent the
money on medical
appointments and meetings
with human rights workers.
Payments were rubberstamped although then
Home Secretary Theresa
May made clear in 2013
“significant costs” linked to
the hate preacher were “not
acceptable to the public and
9pC`qG\ib`ej
not acceptable to me”. The
aim of the welfare visits were
to ensure he was not
tortured on his return to
Jordan, according to details
released through the
Freedom of Information Act.
A Government spokesperson said: “We committed
to monitoring Abu Qatada
for up to three years from the
date of his deportation.
“The final payment for this
by the Home Office and the
Foreign Office was made in
March 2016.”

Fire killer’s threat: If I can’t
have you, no one else will...
Billy Hicks died at house
A BOYFRIEND shouted “no one else
will have you” before killing his girlfriend, another man and himself in a
New Year’s Day house fire, it was
claimed yesterday.
Police are said to believe his two
victims may have been stabbed while
he died in the blaze at the £350,000
property in the village of Kirton,
Lincolnshire.
A woman who was rescued from
the blazing property screamed the
allegations after jumping for her life
from the first floor.
Police probing the case say they
are treating it as a murder
investigation.
Billy Hicks, 24, was yesterday
named by former colleagues as one of
9pC`qG\ib`ej
the three people killed in the
ferocious blaze on Tuesday.
The remains of a 27-year-old
woman and those of a man aged 32
were found at the scene of the
inferno, which broke out at 3am.
An 18-year-old resident said: “We
helped the woman who jumped and
she kept going on and on about this
ex who she said was ‘a complete
psycho’.”
He added: “He told his girl, ‘no one
else will ever have you. I’ll make sure
of that’.”
It is understood a new year’s party
had been held at the property before
the fatal fire broke out.

A REFUGEE granted asylum in the
UK yesterday said Home Secretary
Sajid Javid was right to question the
motives of migrants who are crossing
the Channel in small boats.
Known only as Amer, the man gave
an extraordinary account of how he
fled his home in the Middle East after
being hauled before a Sharia court
and charged with blasphemy.
Facing a possible death sentence,
he said he had no choice but to leave
behind his dying father and the
woman he planned to marry.
The 35-year-old spoke out after
penning a letter setting out how
economic migrants were adding to
the suffering of genuine refugees.
He wrote its contents before Mr
Javid said he wanted to send a message that such people would not be
allowed to illegally settle in the UK.
Amer, who lives in a seaside town in
the south of England and works in
the health service, asked for his identity to be protected because of fears
of reprisals for his family who still do
not know why he left in 2016.
But he hit out at those currently
making the journey from France to
Britain, saying they cannot possibly
be genuine refugees.

He wrote: “When I was an asylum
claimant I never thought about the
country that I needed to go to. All
that mattered to me at that time was
to find a safe haven.
“In my case my destiny was to be in
the UK as the first safe country after
I left my country of origin. If it happened that I was in another country I
would have claimed asylum there.
“In looking at Calais immigrants,
I find the context of these stories to
be damaging to the asylum system.
“A refugee convention was made to
protect people who are in need. It
was not meant to cherry pick where
an asylum claimant can go and live.
“The convention was made about
finding a safe country.
“Looking at an asylum claimant
who can afford paying human traffickers and smugglers money to
enable him to reach British borders,
it is not something that an asylum
claimant would do especially when
coming from a safe country like
France, unless they are seeking immigration for other reasons than a genuine fear for life or of persecution.”
Amer said such actions were not
only an “offence” to the refugee convention but were “tarnishing to the
image of every refugee who is already
facing cultural prejudice and stereotypes every day”.
“I would say to anyone who tries to
exploit the asylum system, please
Sajid Javid warned illegal migrants

was born into a liberal Muslim family
which included high-profile politicians in his country.

long-term partner. But he came to
the attention of the authorities after

Home Secretary Sajid Javid
wrote to Defence Secretary Gavin

patrol the waters in a bid to deter
migrants and organised smuggling
gangs from trying to cross.
Mr Williamson agreed but a row
broke out over who should pay the

the country and claimed asylum in
Britain three days after flying into

At first his application was refused
but he was granted leave to remain
after taking his case to an immigration tribunal.
He insists he has not claimed a
penny off the state in the two and a
half years he has lived in Britain after
arriving with savings of £4,500. He
said: “I have not claimed benefits. It’s
not because I am better than other
people but because I had savings and
don’t accept aid.
“I managed to live on £3.78 a day.
One day of the week I did not eat. I
used to buy from Lidl every day. I
used to eat tuna, houmous and a loaf
of French bread.”
He added: “It was something I
wrote online that infuriated the
authorities. I left my country in a
hurry. It was five days after I faced
the cleric who was the judge in the
Sharia court.
“Two days after that was the hearing where I would have to repent.
That repentance is just two minutes
but I could not do that.
“This was the first time I had ever
been in court. I have a stubborn
mentality. As I was a social activist I
could not retract my opinions.
“I did not stand trial. It would have
been an inevitable destiny that I
would have been found guilty.”
Amer, who also left behind two
sisters and a brother, described the
despair of how his father died a short
time after he arrived in Britain.
“When my father died and I did not
attend his funeral that was disgraceful for me. I ended up needing mental
health treatment because of it.
“I live in deep sorrow to this day.”
He said of the current migrant
crisis: “Sajid Javid will probably be
criticised for what he has said but he
is right. He could be repeating the
words that I wrote in my letter the
day before.
“He is saying that those seeking
asylum should have done so in France
but actually they should have done
so before they reached France. They
don’t reach France directly.
“I agree with everything he has
said.”

of the Royal Navy means the crew
have been able to immediately
divert from routine operations to help
prevent migrants from marking the
dangerous
journey
across
the
channel.”
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt
backed Mr Javid for questioning if
many of the migrants trying to break
into Britian were genuine asylum
seekers.
He said: “I think the Home Secretary is right to say that, as a country
that is very proud of our tradition of
granting asylum to people who need
it, we also want to make sure that
isn’t abused.
“But our priority right now is the
safety of people in the Channel, to
discourage people from making
this very dangerous crossing, but to
make sure that everyone that does is
kept safe.”
Hl\jk`fe
The Home Secretary said on
Wednesday: “A question has to be
asked: If you are a genuine asylum
seeker why have you not sought
asylum in the first safe country that
you arrived in?
“France is not a country anyone
would argue is not safe.”
Mr Javid said that 539 people had
attempted to cross from France to
Britain last year, with 80 per cent
making the journey in the last three
months of the year.
Mr Williamson said on Sunday: “We
have not had any requests as yet but
if the Home Office is in need of Armed
Forces support then our Navy, Air
Force and Army stand ready to
assist.”
The Home Secretary declared the
situation in the English Channel a
“major incident” last week amid fears
people attempting the perilous crossing could die.
Two Border Force cutters on
patrol in the Mediterranean have
been called back to the Channel to
boost patrols.

A National Crime
Agency spokeswoman
said: “NCA officers
arrested a 33-year-old
Iranian national and a
24-year-old British man
on suspicion of
arranging the illegal
movement of migrants
across the English
Channel into the UK.
“As the investigation
is ongoing, we are
unable to comment
further at this time.”
The NCA spokeswoman
said the arrests were in
relation to “alleged
offences committed in
December”.
Entering the country
illegally by boat is not a
cheap option, with many
paying around £10,000
each to people
smugglers for the
perilous journey.
The migrants have
been camping rough
in Calais with most
of them abandoned
by their smuggler before
making the Channel
crossing.
Any migrant picked up
in English waters will, at
least initially, be brought
to the UK to have their
asylum claim heard.
Under maritime law,
the Channel is divided in
half for search and
rescue operations.
If migrants are seized
on the French side
they should be returned
to France.

THE son of radical preacher Abu
Hamza appeared in court yesterday
after he was arrested by detectives
hunting the killers of hero doorman
Tudor Simionov.
Imran Mostafa Kamel, 27, is accused
of possessing a firearm with intent to
cause fear or danger at a luxury block
of flats in London’s Mayfair on New
Year’s Day.
Kamel was seized over an incident
at Fountain House in Park Lane at
5.36am on Tuesday – the same time as
Mr Simionov was found with fatal
stab injuries at the mansion block.
Scotland Yard stressed the charges
against Kamel are not “directly connected” to the death of the doorman.
Kamel, of Ealing, west London,
made a brief appearance at Westminster magistrates court where he
was also charged with breaching a
lifetime ban on possessing firearms
and was remanded in custody until
January 31.

Notorious
Mr Simionov, 33, was stabbed in
the chest as he fought with a gang of
men who tried to storm a VIP party at
the block.
The Romanian took on the mob in a
bid to save his fellow bouncers, according to a witness.
Two other security men, aged 29
and 37, were also stabbed as was a
29-year-old woman. Their injuries are
not life-threatening.
Club promoter Leroy Rose, 25, said
of Mr Simionov, who was said to be
planning to marry girlfriend Madalina
Anghel: “He is a hero, he died trying to
save his colleagues. He beat up about
nine guys by himself.”
The venue for the New Year party
costs around £5,000-a-week to rent
and is understood to be leased by
former convict Edward Davenport.
Dubbed Fast Eddie, self-styled
“Lord” Davenport was jailed for eight
Abu Hamza, who lost his hands in a bomb explosion, his son, Imran, and bouncer Tudor Simionov with girlfriend Madalina
years in 2011 over a £4.5million fraud.
He is notorious for holding VIP sex
parties at smart venues in London.
CCTV images and mobile phone footage from the venue are likely to play a
crucial role in the investigation.
The Yard confirmed several witnesses have already given detailed
statements. It is understood some
have handed over their mobile phones
so videos of the violence can be examined. Detective Chief Inspector Andy
Partridge said: “The area was particularly busy with people out celebrating

ministers have decided to offer a

To offer a cheap service to criminals
who have harmed others and society is
not natural justice. When people are

supposed to be punishment, not a hotel

Being denied easy access to friends is
meant to be part of the price paid by

Scandal over medication
M
any readers will have first-hand
experience of the importance of
blood pressure pills. In fact it is
thought that around 16 million
people, more than a quarter of the
population, suffer from high blood
pressure. So the revelation that batches
of pills have been called in by regulators
because they could cause cancer is
a matter of great concern.
While we should all be grateful that
the Medicines and Healthcare products
Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has
acted promptly to remove medications,
questions need to be asked as to why
they were allowed on the shelves in the
first place. Officials must get to the
bottom of what happened and ensure
that patients are not put at this sort of
risk again. Blood pressure is a major
killer so it is vital that medication to
deal with it is not only available but
completely safe.

Stephen Barclay yesterday
that the Government is
now making very serious preparations for a “no-deal” Brexit
will leave many people scared.
For months we have been
fed grim predictions about how
our ports will seize up, supermarket shelves will empty and
planes will not be able to take
off. Some of these claims are
plain scare stories – last month
when the EU published its own
plans for a disorderly Brexit, for
example, it contained provisions that would allow UK
planes to fly to EU destinations
even in the absence of a specific
deal on aviation.
But it is no use anyone trying
to claim that Britain could simply walk away from the EU after
46 years without any disruption. Many of our supply chains
have become dependent on
the free flow of traffic through
Dover and other ports. Of
course there will be problems if
tariffs and regulatory checks

what is at stake – the EU’s
budget depends heavily on UK
contributions, given that we
are the second-highest contributor. There is very little enthusiasm on the part of other
member states to up their own
contributions to fill the black
hole left by a swift UK exit.
If we really do fall out of the
EU on March 29 it will not be
the end of the world for Britain.
After any initial disruption,
supply chains will be restored
to normal. Businesses will
adjust their working practices.
Many have already made
detailed plans of how they
would cope – they are well
ahead of the Government in
that respect.
T
here is no reason, in
other words, why the
Government
should
allow itself to appear desperate
for a deal while the EU shrugs
its shoulders, treating a trade
deal as if it were an act of
kindness towards Britain – as
opposed to an arrangement of
mutual interest.
As things stand, a no-deal
exit might seem more likely
than ever. When Mrs May’s
deal was originally intended to
go before the Commons in
December over 100 Conservative MPs threatened to vote
against it. That, along with 10
DUP votes, would have led to
a catastrophic defeat, which
could even have brought down
the Government.
No doubt some would-be
Tory rebels would soften at
the last moment, as they are
wont to do. But it is hard to see
how, in the absence of any
concessions from EU leaders,
the electoral geometry could
change sufficiently to win the
Government the vote.
Yet the EU really would not
have to move very far in order
to change the situation. Were it
to do away with the proposed
backstop, place a time limit on
it or allow Britain the unilateral
right to terminate it, then rebel
MPs would move in droves to
support the Government.
Hopefully, now that the EU
can see we are making serious
preparations for a no deal, it
will agree to such a move. The
situation may appear chaotic
but, as the clock ticks down
to March 29, I still have confidence that a deal will be done
– and that the plans for a disorderly Brexit, while necessary,
will not in the event need to
be enacted.

Whatever does
the rest of the
world see in us?
Here’s a puzzle. The EU has its
own PR department in Brussels
putting out the message
worldwide that Europe under
Brussels is very close to
paradise. So hundreds of
thousands from impoverished or
war-torn zones struggle through
hell to come there. So why,
having arrived, do so many of
those thousands struggle on
to come here? After all, aren’t
we leaving?
They risk their lives and those
of their wives and children to
reach some Utopian promised
land they have never seen, only
heard about. They take crazy
risks to cross one of the
most dangerous waterways
in the world to reach the sands
of Dover.
Perhaps, as we struggle
towards Brexit, those who see
their life’s work as running this
place down could answer that.
What is it the dirt-poor and
persecuted can see that our rich
and privileged cannot? Perhaps
we might welcome the destitute
who love us and chuck out
the snooty who do not.

pundits and opinion-formers are
coming to the same view. The BBC,
which is now a bought-and-paid-for
propaganda organisation, sticks to
its passionate pro-EU line. But
several newspapers have had a big
rethink. And the May Government
is still lying to us in order to rally
support for the scuttle the lady

Attorney General Sir Geoffrey Cox
on the true terms concealed
inside those 585 pages of lawyerspeak. Why not? If the so-called
Settlement which Mrs May urges
Parliament to endorse was truly a
success she would have everything
to gain from full disclosure. The
reason for the secrecy is that it is a
total failure in which she conceded
everything of value.
Then there is Caroline Bell. Who
she? Well, a pseudonym actually.
A senior civil servant who has taken
on herself to reveal that in truth
plans to work the WTO trading
system to our advantage are hugely
developed and almost ready to go.
Meaning… NO DEAL is a fraud.
In a free country you’d think that
anyone with experience of a problem
would be allowed to write about it

she hide? To save her career from
ruin, it would seem. The only logical
explanation is that, from deep inside
the establishment she fears she
would be ruined if the high and the
mighty discovered that one of their
own had actually broken cover and
told us the truth.
Hence, subterfuge. You’d think

100th birthday joy
for hero...76 years
after family heard
he ‘died in action’
A SECOND World War veteran has
just celebrated his 100th birthday – 76
years after his family were told he had
been killed in action.
Father-of-two Tom Greenwood was
trapped behind enemy lines in June
1942 while serving as a 24-year-old
private in North Africa.
He was presumed dead and his
parents received a telegram saying
he had been killed.
In stark terms it announced:
“Greatly regret report received from
Middle East Private Greenwood T
killed in action, 13/6/42.”
But Tom was actually being held as
a prisoner of war in an Italian-run
camp in Northern Tripoli, as a second
telegram revealed that August.
He was later moved and forced to
work on repairing a dam at Marburg
in central Germany.
But at the war’s end he returned
home to marry his sweetheart
Marjorie Hartley, who had
refused to believe he was dead
and waited for him.
Tom, born on December 29,
1918, in the Yorkshire village of
Wilsden, marked his centenary
with a party where he now lives
in a care home near Bradford,
on Saturday. He was joined by
three generations of family,
including his six-year-old
great-granddaughter

By Robert Kellaway
Dave Greenwood, 66, a retired journalist, said of Tom’s time in captivity:
“I remember he told me he and his
fellow prisoners were given the job of
rebuilding the dam at Marburg.
“They would load cement into one
side of a train then take it out of the
other side and throw it over the dam,
just to delay the project.
“At the same time, they were being
bombed by Allied aircraft who were
trying to destroy it.”
Tom’s daughter, Sheila Donaldson,
64, a retired IT specialist, said: “I did
ask him the other day about the
secret to his long life, and he said it
was to ‘keep breathing’.
“Until a few years ago he would
keep himself fit by walking and cutting logs for his fire with a chainsaw.
He loved his cars and drove
until he was 97.
“He has smoked a pipe all
his life. He wasn’t a big
drinker but he liked a
whisky and dry ginger
every evening before he
went to bed.”
Tom ran a garage until
1980 then continued working as a private hire driver.
Though long retired, he is
still well and can say in the
words of Mark Twain:
“Reports of my
death are greatly
exaggerated.”

Hatton Garden heist ringleader
John “Kenny” Collins enjoys a stroll to
the shops after spending Christmas
with friends and family.
After three and a half years in jail,
Collins is back in his former council
house just a mile from the safety
deposit vault he helped raid in
London’s jewellery quarter in 2015.
The elderly gang, dubbed “diamond
wheezers”, used Collins’s house to
separate loot worth £14million.
Collins, 78, who has high blood
pressure, diabetes and arthritis, was
freed on licence from Belmarsh prison,
south-east London, a month ago after
serving half his seven-year sentence.
Looking much slimmer, he was
spotted this week walking to his local
shops in Islington, north London, to
buy a newspaper.
Only one of the four Hatton Garden
ringleaders remains in jail, despite
prosecutors claiming jewels worth
millions are still missing.
Wombat
Danny Jones, 63, was jailed last year
for an extra three years after pleading
guilty to another burglary.
Terry Perkins, 69, died of a heart
attack in prison last year.
But Collins faces a further sevenyear term if he fails to pay a £6.5million confiscation order imposed on
him and the other ringleaders.
He must also hand over another
£410,000, half the value of the home he
shares with his partner.
Although described by one of the
gang in secret police recordings as
“wombat-thick”, Collins was the
wealthiest – more than £1million in
cash and assets were found.
As well as a £175,000 flat on the
Costa del Sol, police recovered
£661,698 from nine bank accounts.
Collins was brought in on the raid
only as a favour from his pal, mastermind Brian Reader, 79, who was freed

last year. But he fell asleep on lookout
and had to be woken by the gang
member known as Basil the Ghost.
And he led to the downfall of the
villains – after driving to the vault in
his own distinctive Mercedes.
Born in Tottenham, north London,
Collins was a boxer in his youth and is
said to enjoy a Guinness.
He and Reader are challenging the
proceeds of crime order and will
remain free until that is settled. A
hearing is due next month.

£3,000 for Yesterday shots of Beatles

SEASIDE snaps taken by a travelling

their Magical Mystery Tour have sold for

The 15 previously-unseen pictures
were taken by the unnamed guest at the
Atlantic Hotel in Newquay, Cornwall,
when the Fab Four arrived in 1967.
One shows George Harrison chatting

The fan kept the colour slides along

Treat obesity
like a disease
urge doctors
OBESITY should be seen as a disease
rather than a lifestyle choice to treat it
more effectively, health experts said
yesterday.
The Royal College of Physicians
said that the very overweight should
be recognised as needing specialist
care and not be “blamed” for their
condition.
Obesity is thought to affect one in
four adults and around one in five children aged 10 to 11.
The call comes a day after it was
revealed children have, on average,
already consumed more sugar than the
maximum amount recommended for
an 18-year-old by the time they are 10.
OPINION: PAGE 12
Stigma
Pictures: BNPS
And Cancer Research UK says obesity could overtake smoking as the
biggest preventable cause of cancer in
women by 2043.
RCP president Professor Andrew
Goddard said: “It is important to the
health of the nation that we remove the
stigma associated with obesity.
“It is not a lifestyle choice caused by
individual greed, but a disease caused
by health inequalities, genetic influences and social factors.
“It is governments, not individuals,
which can have an impact on the food

environment through regulation and
taxation and by controlling availability
and affordability.
Governments can also promote
physical activity by ensuring facilities
are available to local communities and
through legislation and public health
initiatives.”
The RCP said seeing obesity as a
chronic disease would create policies
to improve care in doctors’ surgeries
and hospitals and pave the way for
major prevention measures.
The college also wants to see “a
change to public discourse about obesity, so that those with the condition are
no longer blamed for it”.
In 2015, 63 per cent of adults were
classed by Public Health England
(PHE) as being overweight – a Body
Mass Index of 25-29.9 – or obese, where
the BMI is 30 to 39.9.
Earlier this week, PHE said the average 10-year-old had guzzled sugar
weighing at least 21 stone by the time
they reached adulthood.
PHE’s study found that children
were eating or drinking, on average, the
equivalent of 13 cubes of sugar a day –
eight more than the recommended
level – based on consumption from the
age of two.

in a coma for nine days with his
mother at his bedside after their
lives “changed in a heartbeat” on
Christmas Day.
While other families were
opening
presents,
Robert’s
condition worsened and he was
rushed to hospital with a
suspected kidney infection.
Doctors diagnosed pneumonia
and sepsis. He was later transferred to Alder Hey Children’s
Hospital in Liverpool where he
tested positive for swine flu.
He is seriously ill there in a
specialist critical care unit.
Robert from Alsager, Cheshire,
started feeling unwell on December 21 with a cold after completing a work placement at Crewe’s
South Cheshire College.

Pandemic
TV girl’s rape-fear stalker jailed
A SEX-OBSESSED stalker
who threatened to rape a TV
newsreader was jailed for twoand-a-half years yesterday.
Gordon Hawthorn, 69,
bombarded Alex Lovell, 45,
with sinister greeting cards to
“vent his sexual frustrations”
after 34 years in a physically
loveless relationship, Bristol
Crown Court heard.
Ms Lovell’s “blood ran cold”
when he started signing off as
her “soon-to-be rapist”. He told
her he had got close enough in
the street to smell her and was
“waiting for his chance to strike”.
Hawthorn previously admitted
stalking the married presenter by
sending 38 cards over two years
to her at BBC Points West.
Sentencing him, Judge Martin
Picton also imposed an indefinite
restraining order preventing him
from contacting his victim or
visiting the BBC in Bristol.
His mother Mel, 40, believed
bed rest was the best course of
action. She said: “I gave him cold
and flu tablets and by the Saturday and the Sunday he had
started with back pain.
“By Christmas Eve his breathing was slowly becoming rapid
and by Christmas morning I knew
he wasn’t right and an ambulance
took him to Leighton Hospital
with a suspected kidney infection.
“He was quickly diagnosed with
severe pneumonia and sepsis, put
in a medically-induced coma and
it was felt he would have better
care at Alder Hey.
“We arrived at Alder Hey at
7.45pm on Christmas Day and he
was put on the critical care unit
where he also tested positive for
swine flu. He is now on a machine
Boy ‘with cold’
battles for life
after it’s found
to be swine flu
and fighting for his life.” Friends
and neighbours of the family have
rallied around, raising £4,000 in
an online appeal.
Mel, who also lives with her
seven-year-old son Oliver, her
partner John Lockett and his
three children, added: “He has
small bleeds on the brain as the
infection is extremely severe and
has spread. He will have brain
damage if he pulls through.”
Swine flu is the H1N1 strain of
flu and children face a higher risk
of catching it because of their
weaker immune system.
The swine flu pandemic of 2009
killed 200,000 people worldwide.
The virus became known as swine
flu because of its similarity to flu
viruses that affect pigs.
Symptoms include usual flu
traits such as fever, cough, sore
throat, watery eyes, body aches,
shortness of breath, headache,
coughing and dizziness.

Douglas: Working at 74 is my most joyful time
HOLLYWOOD veteran Michael
Douglas says working in his
70s is the “most joyful time” in his
career and has no plans to retire.
Double Oscar-winner Douglas, 74,
said his new comedy show makes him
want to keep performing.
The actor said he picked up his
latest part in the Netflix comedy The
Kominsky Method, in which he plays a
former star turned acting coach, after
being dazzled by the script.
The star, married to Welsh actress
By James Desborough
Catherine Zeta-Jones, said: “I love
what I’m doing. This is actually
probably the most joyful time for me,
the realisation that you can be doing
this for the rest of your life.
“I’m planning on it. So, this is the
time of your life when you really
appreciate being an actor.”
Douglas, who rose to fame in hit
movies such as Romancing The Stone
alongside star Kathleen Turner,
added: “So I love this medium
[Netflix], this came along, this
streaming possibility.
“Here’s a chance to play some
comedy, which I don’t normally get a
chance to do that often.
“So it was a great opportunity
and sort of been my year between
doing green screen [visual effects]
movies, which I’d never done in
my life before and now having a
chance to do a series like this has
been really a treat.”
Breakthrough hope for
breast cancer victims
Michael Douglas, inset with Kathleen
Turner, is still enjoying movie roles
A NATURALLY occurring protein
could offer new hope for women with
one of the deadliest breast cancers.
In tests TINAGL1, which is
produced by the body, held back the
growth and spread of triple-negative
breast cancer (TNBC).
Tumour cells of this type lack the
three most common “receptors” –
bioactive surface molecules – that
fuel breast cancer.
They do not respond to hormone
treatments, such as tamoxifen, or
drugs that block the cancer-driving
protein HER2.
TNBC affects about 15 per cent of
breast cancer patients. Just 77 per
By John von Radowitz
cent of women with TNBC survive for
five years after diagnosis compared
with 93 per cent of those with other
forms of breast cancer.
TINAGL1 acts on two biological
pathways that make TNBC so aggressive and difficult to treat.
Lead researcher Professor Yibin
Kang, from Princeton University in
the US, said: “People have tried to
block the spread of this form of
cancer but attempts so far have failed
because if you try one approach, the
cancer cells compensate by finding
a way to escape. With this new
approach, the treatment blocks both
pathways at the same time.”
The research is reported in the
journal Cancer Cell.
Prof Kang’s team first looked
at more than 800 breast tumour
samples taken from human patients.
Tumours containing more of the
TINAGL1 protein were more strongly
linked to good patient outcomes.
A laboratory-produced version of
the protein was then given to mice
with breast cancer over a seven-week
period.
It significantly suppressed tumour
growth and cancer spread to the
lungs, with no major side-effects.

Kerrison is studying construction
Let off jail, drug dealers whose
grammar impressed the judge
Two educated drug dealers were spared
jail after a judge was impressed by their
grammar in their illicit trades.
Students Luke Rance, 19, and Brandon Kerrison, 21, were arrested outside a
library when they were found with
cannabis. Swansea Crown Court heard
that police examined their mobile phones
to find correctly spelled text messages
relating to their drug deals.
Judge David Hale said grammar and
punctuation in messages was of a much
higher standard than normally seen from
dealers. One text from Kerrison’s phone
said: “Mad flavours from 10 tonight – let
me know for more details.”
The court heard Kerrison was studying
By John Fitzpatrick
a course in construction, and performing
arts-lover Rance was due to start a
degree later this year. Judge Hale said he
did not want to “fetter the prospects” of
the men by sending them to jail.
Instead Kerrison and Rance were
handed community orders with 100 hours
of unpaid work. Kerrison, of Southgate,
Swansea, admitted possession of cannabis with intent to supply and being
concerned in the supply of the drug.
Rance, also of Southgate, admitted
possession of cannabis with intent and
possession of cocaine. Judge Hale told
the pair that at first “cannabis may be an
experiment you find pleasurable” but its
use can have serious consequences.
He said courts all too often see lives
that have been “desperately affected” by
the use of strong cannabis. He said the
delay in bringing the case to court “does
not do the system much credit” – and
had meant a long period of stress and
worry for their families. However, the
delay may have worked to their benefit
as they were able to demonstrate they
had got their lives back on track.
Judge Hale said Rance seemed to have
got involved with “ne’er-do-wells in
Liverpool” while Kerrison had set himself
up as a local dealer. He told them: “I hope
a court never sees either of you again.”

DEL BOY’S tower block in the hit TV

Harlech Tower was filmed as the
outside of the BBC comedy’s Nelson
Mandela House, where Derek and
Rodney Trotter, played by David
Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, lived.
Nelson Mandela House was
supposed to be in Peckham, southeast London, but Harlech Tower is 13
miles west, in Ealing.
It is part of Acton Gardens,
formerly South Acton Estate, which
has been redeveloped since 2012.
Revised plans for 1,950 homes
have been approved and at least
By Grainne Cuffe
another 3,000 are in the pipeline. Half
will be sold privately and the rest are
affordable housing for the estate’s
5,000 residents.
A spokesman for the developers
said: “London’s housing needs have
changed considerably since the
original master plan was conceived.”
One of Del Boy’s favourite
predictions was “this time next year
we’ll be millionaires!”
These homes are expected to be
worth about £1billion when they are
finished in the mid-2020s.
Del’s response to that could only
be “lovely jubbly”.

Why China
is obsessed
by the Moon
Beijing has reasserted itself
as a leading player
in the space race following
a successful lunar landing
but, as JAMES MURRAY
reports, its precious
minerals are the real draw
T
HERE were both cheers
and tears among the
technicians at the Beijing
Aerospace Control Centre as China’s Chang’e 4
space craft touched down
on the lunar surface yesterday
morning. After all they had
pulled off a feat that no other
space programme had been able
to achieve: land a rover on the
so-called dark side of the moon.
Shortly afterwards the probe
began sending back never-seenbefore pictures of its dusty surface pockmarked by craters. To
the layman they may come across
as rather bleak images of a desolate landscape, but to China’s
leaders they held the promise of
great power and riches.
For this mission could be Beijing’s first step in laying claim
to the vast lunar resources
that are waiting to be
exploited by the smartest
and fastest global powers.
The moon’s treasure
trove of metals includes
gold, iron, platinum and
tungsten but the big
money is in a gas called
helium-3. While gold is currently priced at £1,000 an
ounce, conservative estimates have put the value of
the precious gas at a whopping
£50,000 per ounce. No surprise
when you consider that some
experts reckon that 40 tonnes of
helium-3, or He-3,
would be
enough to satisfy the US’s power
needs for an entire year.
Quite simply a steady supply of
this gas could solve the world’s
energy crises for hundreds if not
thousands of years. Most people
will be familiar with helium-4, the
gas that makes balloons rise, but
its cousin, He-3, is rare because
very little reaches our surface
because of the atmosphere and
Earth’s magnetic fields.
Our stocks are believed to total
only a few hundred kilograms
while the moon has at least one
million tonnes of reserves. The
leader of China’s space agency
once admitted publicly, perhaps
in error, that He-3 could meet
the country’s energy requirements, through nuclear fusion,
for 10,000 years. Now the space
race is on to see how feasible it is
to get the gas back to earth –
with China leading the way.
Gathering up gas-rich moon
dust in solar-powered moon vehicles promises to be a comparatively easy trick to pull off. But
how would you then heat it up to
600C in order to release the gas
DARK SIDE: Will
the landing spark
a space race?
and then transport it back to
Earth?
Heaving all that mining hardware nearly 240,000 miles into
space seems way beyond the
reach of China, Russia or Nasa
at the moment, but by 2025 it
may well be achievable.
Some estimates have said the
cost of such a programme would
be £12billion, which is not a prohibitive sum for a Chinese government that currently spends
billions a year on importing oil.

HICKEY
SPACE RACE: Aerospace technicians
in Beijing celebrate after the landing
of Chang’e-4 lunar probe yesterday
RECALLING the closest he came to being
fired, eccentric thespian Brian Blessed
reveals it dates back to a long-ago stage
production of Hamlet, when an audience
member loudly broke wind.
The 82-year-old,
pictured, who was
appearing with a young
Sir Kenneth Branagh at
the time, says: “On the
opening night, Laurence
Olivier, Michael Caine,
Omar Sharif were in the
front row... it [the
breaking of wind] echoed
all over the theatre.
I couldn’t speak, it made me laugh so
much. Branagh was alongside me and
became legless.”
He adds: “The next day he and I were
dragged in front of the committee. They
said they were ashamed of us that we
laughed so much, and if we ever did it
again we’d be sacked on the spot.”
FORMER Labour politician and Strictly
favourite Ed Balls is reminded of a story
concerning his one-time secretary,
who secretly ignored instructions to
provide members of the Treasury with
posh mineral water every morning for
seven years.
Responding to claims the assistant
instead filled the two bottles with tap water
during his long stint working for Gordon
Brown, Balls (who remained oblivious at
the time) now acknowledges: “All true!”
It has been estimated his secretary
saved the nation up to £3,000.
The logical next step would be to
invest in a fleet of space freighters capable of shuttling the
precious cargo back to the homeland in the coming decades.
The first images from Chang’e-4
were being pored over by experts
at the China National Space
Administration last night as they
took an important leap towards
realising the big dream.
Although China, along with 101
other countries, has signed a
1967 UN treaty that says no country should “appropriate” the
moon the document is vague
when it comes to exploiting
minerals. Ironically, a forward
thinking British company could
benefit
from
the
laxness.
Oxford-based Reaction Engines
is behind Skylon, a reusable
spacecraft capable of carrying a
cargo of up to 12 tonnes.
Their spacecraft could be
operational by 2024, by which
time companies such as
Planetary Resources, backed
by Titanic director James
Cameron and a number of
Google billionaires, may be
in a position to use them.
For now China is basking in
the international glory of its
latest lunar endeavour. They
say they have “lifted a mysterious veil” and opened a new
chapter in lunar “exploration”.
After entering the moon’s orbit
in mid-December, the probe,
which has a lander and a rover,
touched down near the moon’s
south pole in the Von Kármán
crater.
The probe also took six live
species – cotton, rapeseed,
potato, arabidopsis, fruit fly and
yeast – to the lifeless environment to form a mini biosphere.
China insists its space adventures are peaceful, but the US
says they aim to prevent other
nations from using space-based
assets in a crisis.
The US Congress has banned
Nasa from two-way cooperation
with its Chinese counterpart over
security concerns and President
Donald Trump wants to create a
new “Space Force” by 2020, as
the sixth branch of the military.
Trump said in 2017 that he
wanted to return astronauts to
the lunar surface to build a
foundation for an eventual
manned Mars mission in the mid2030s. In three years time Nasa
should start building a new space
station laboratory to orbit the
moon and operate as a stopping
point for missions to distant
parts of the solar system.
N
ASA’S New Horizons
explorer
successfully
“phoned home” on Tuesday after a journey to the most
distant world ever explored by
humankind, a frozen rock at the
edge of the solar system that
scientists hope will uncover
secrets to its creation.
The nuclear-powered space
probe travelled 4 billion miles to
get within 2,200 miles of Ultima
Thule, a snowman shaped
20-mile-long space rock in the
uncharted heart of the Kuiper
Belt, a ring of icy celestial bodies
just outside Neptune’s orbit.
China is focusing its efforts
closer to home. Five years ago
they made the country’s first
lunar soft landing, but its “Jade
Rabbit” rover, named after a folklore legend about a rabbit living
on the moon, began malfunctioning after several weeks.
It looks as though the new
rover will be much more successful. Indeed, its masters hope the
information it sends back will
help them plan the next phase of
Operation Moonraker, the plundering of the moon – one giant
leap on the way to space superpower status.
RESPONDING to news of Monty Python
colleague Sir Michael Palin’s knighthood,
Eric Idle (currently without a gong) recalls
his own cheery meeting with the Queen.
“At least I made her laugh,” he points
out mischievously.
THEY have created some of the nation’s
best-loved comedies, including Porridge
and The Likely Lads, but writing duo Dick
Clement and Ian La Frenais have
occasionally met with resistance from
leading stars.
Recounting the daunting task of
directing Hollywood A-lister Kirk Douglas
in their light-hearted 1971 movie To Catch
A Spy, Clement tells The Spectator: “The
first thing he said to me, before ‘Hello,’
was, ‘I can’t play comedy’.”
REMEMBERING showbiz agent father
Joe Collins advising her against an acting
career, Dame Joan Collins, pictured, says:
“He knew the perils... he
said ‘You’re a pretty,
young girl, people will try
and take advantage of
you’. He gave me good
warnings. He was the one
who said, ‘If people try to
take advantage, knee
them in the downstairs
department’.”
Dame Joan, 85, adds:
“I had lots of propositions... one time
I went to meet a producer, he was in the
bath! I left very quickly. Needless to say,
I didn’t get the part.”
THIS month will mark the 50th anniversary
of The Beatles’ last-ever live performance,
which famously took place on a Savile
Row rooftop in 1969.
The Fab Four settled on the unlikely
London location – record label Apple’s
HQ – after abandoning plans to play in a
Roman amphitheatre. The young police
officer ordered to bring the unauthorised
concert to an end was Ken Wharfe, later
bodyguard to Princess Diana. He has
recalled: “Despite my instructions at the
time to arrest The Beatles, no one was
ever going to do that!”

FOUR FABULOUS MINI-MAGS TO COLLECT
Muslim convert planned
terror attack massacres
By John Twomey
in 2010 led by hate preacher Anjem
Choudary and his banned Al-Muhajiroun group.
He was pictured with the convicted
terrorist Trevor Brooks and had secret
communications with British jihadi
Junaid Hussain, who was killed in a
drone strike in Syria in August 2015.
A few weeks before Hussain was
killed, Ludlow told the terrorist
recruiter: “At my job at a Royal Mail
warehouse, we had a book that mentions how staff look out for suspicious
items like bombs.
A MUSLIM convert who plotted to
slaughter 100 people in London’s
Oxford Street declared in a hate-filled
rant: “I spit at this country,” a court
was told yesterday.
Ex-Royal Mail worker Lewis Ludlow,
27, filmed the outburst as he dreamed
of mass murder in a van attack. Wearing
a hood, the fanatic said: “I pledge
allegiance to Islamic State and its
leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. I want
nothing from Britain and I spit at this
country. You love life as we love death.
Be ready because we too are ready.”
Lethal
Ghost
Ludlow, a former neo-Nazi, also
planned massacres outside St Paul’s
Cathedral and Madame Tussauds.
The Old Bailey heard he plotted the
terror attacks while pretending to
engage with the Prevent de-radicalisation programme.
Ludlow, known as The Ghost, had
16 meetings and one phone call with
officers in six months before he was
seized last April.
On the same day as one of the meetings with Prevent, he carried out
reconnaissance on potential targets in
London. Detectives recovered torn-up
scraps of paper from Ludlow’s bin
which listed his attack sites. He
Ex-Royal Mail worker Lewis Ludlow and a torn-up note of his London attack sites
planned to hire a van in a “lone wolf”
attack and mount the pavement in
Oxford Street.
Ludlow wrote: “Wolf should either
use a ram attack or use ... the truck to
maximise death ... it is ideal for an
attack. It is expected nearly 100 could
be killed.”
But the would-be killer did not have
a driving licence and was scared of
crashing, the court heard. Ludlow’s
mobile phone was retrieved last April
and found to have videos of his antiBritish rant.
The terrorist, who also styled himself as The Eagle, had added in an
ominous warning: “I will do my best to
serve and die in the cause of Allah.”
The Prevent programme first tried
to engage with Ludlow in 2008. His
college had alerted authorities over
his extreme religious beliefs.
Ludlow, who had converted to Islam
at 16, later attended a demonstration
“I’m thinking should I find this
info out more as Royal Mail rarely
check items.
“It is perfect to send something
lethal through.”
The terrorist initially cut off contact
with Prevent. Ludlow, who had autism,
then resumed the meetings in November 2017 but kept his true feelings
under wraps.
Last February, he was stopped at
Heathrow as he attempted to fly to
the Philippines.
Ludlow, of Rochester, Kent, admitted preparing a terror attack and
funding IS in the Philippines at a
hearing last year.
The sentencing hearing, due to last
three days, continues.
Father is
told to pull
down ‘pub
in a shed’
A FATHER has been
ordered to pull down a
“pub” he built in his
garden which he
disguised as a shed.
Builder Carl Roberts,
49, spent £6,000 on the
mini-boozer complete
with pub sign, bar stools,
pool table and Sky
Sports shown on TV.
He claimed he built
the 10ft by 9ft wooden
structure as a shed and
garden room to
entertain family and
friends.
But council planners
have ordered him to tear
it down after housing
association inspectors
alleged he was illegally
selling alcohol.
Carl, who built the
secret pub in his garden
in Kidderminster, Worcs,
two years ago now has
28 days to demolish it or
face further legal action.
But the father of two
denies he has broken
any laws and claims he
uses the pub, which he
called The Dick Inn, for
family parties.
He said: “The only
things the pub has been
used for are kids parties
and the occasional
barbecue.”

P-p-p-puzzle of zoo’s big stocktake
WHEN you’re trying to count
swimming penguins, it can be hard to
p-p-p-pick one from another.
But this woman keeper at London
Zoo eventually found all 95 Humboldt
penguins were present and correct in
the annual stocktake yesterday.
Keepers were also pictured with
Bactrian camels, squirrel monkeys
and pygmy goats – but they wisely
counted Sumatran tigers Jae Jae and
Melati from a safe distance.
Last year’s stocktake had to be
By Robert Kellaway
delayed by a month after a fire killed
four meerkats and an aardvark at the
zoo in December 2017.
At the last count there were more
than 17,000 animals living at the zoo,
a total made up more than 750
species.
New animals this year include Paco
and Poco the tamanduas, born in the
rainforest exhibit, 12 Humbolt
penguin chicks which hatched at the
zoo’s penguin beach, and rescued
leeches Buffy, Angel and Spike.
After touring the enclosures, staff
displayed the numbers for all to see.
Several penguins were intrigued,
gazing up at the blackboard next to
their pond. Jae Jae the tiger took a
fancy to his stocktake display – and
appeared to be trying to eat it.
The zoo completes the stocktake to
meet requirements of its licence.
It also plays a part in helping the
global conservation effort.
A pygmy goat, Bactrian camels, Jae Jae the tiger and penguins are all counted in the big London Zoo stocktake yesterday

Nazanin with daughter Gabriella, four, who lives with relatives in Iran
By Mikey Smith
A BRITISH mother imprisoned in
Iran over claims of spying is to go
on hunger strike in protest at the
“inhuman” denial of medical care.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe said
she and a fellow prisoner, human
rights activist Narges Mohammadi,
intend to go on a three-day hunger
strike in Tehran’s Evin prison.
The pair claim they have been
denied access to a doctor, despite
“frequent requests”.
Last
month
Mrs
ZaghariRatcliffe’s husband Richard, 43,
said his wife had found lumps in
her breast but prison bosses
refused to let her see a doctor.
In a letter published by Defenders of Human Rights Centre, an
Iranian charity, they wrote: “In
protest to this illegal, inhuman and
unlawful behaviour, and to express
our concerns for our health and
survival at this denial of specialist
treatment, despite taking daily
medicines, we will go on hunger
strike from January 14 to 16.”
Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, 40, was
arrested in 2016 while in the
country with daughter Gabriella to
visit family.
Ellie Kennedy, of Amnesty International UK, said: “It is shocking
that Iranian authorities can callously force prisoners of conscience
into starving themselves in protest
at their plight and they should
immediately provide full medical
care to Nazanin and Narges.
“We would also like to see the UK
Government strongly insisting on
the provision of immediate medical
care for both of them.
“Narges is a distinguished Iranian human rights defender who
should never have been jailed, and
likewise Nazanin is simply a charity
worker who should be back with
her family in the UK.
“It is time for the Iranian authorities to finally accept the obvious:
these two women need to be freed
as soon as possible, a first step in
trying to address Iran’s appalling
human rights record.”

Greggs has launched a vegan sausage roll, McDonald’s is selling vegetarian
Happy Meals and you can even get a meat and dairy-free meal at Pizza Hut….
Welcome to Veganuary!
By Louise Elliott
W
hen fast-food chain
McDonald’s launches a
breaded
red
pesto
goujon wrap in its
Happy Meal range, you
know that veganism has
stepped out of the alternative food
fad counter-culture and into the
mainstream.
Ditto Greggs which introduced
its first vegan sausage roll this week
so that Britain’s 3.5 million vegans
can enjoy the outlet’s bestselling
item along with the meat eaters.
And long before they got on the
bandwagon, supermarkets such as
Waitrose and Marks & Spencer had
introduced extensive new vegan
food lines to capitalise on the
burgeoning numbers of people
choosing to ditch animal products.
Pizza Hut started offering a
vegan range in 2017 and has just
launched a cheesy vegan jackfruit
dish.
“Vegan food is officially mainstream,” said Emma Weinbren,
food trends editor at The Grocer
magazine. “Over the past year,
sales of meat-free and vegan items
have shot up 14.3 per cent to
£352.1million according to research
from Kantar Worldpanel.
“That growth is only set to
escalate over the coming year, so it
makes sense for chains such as
Greggs and McDonald’s to get
involved.”
She added: “This isn’t just about
catering for vegans, although they
are an increasingly influential and
vocal group. It’s also about
catering for the growing number of
UK consumers who are cutting
back on their meat intake.
“Foods such as the Greggs vegan
sausage roll are unlikely to make
people suddenly convert to veganism, but they make it easier for
consumers to eat less meat. So
vegan options are no longer a niche
proposition – they will appeal to a
wide audience who are sure to
deliver a return on investment.”
Veganuary – a campaign which
calls on its participants to go
animal-free for the month – is
getting bigger by the year.
Since the movement of the same
name started five years ago, participating numbers have more than
doubled each year and a total of
more than 250,000 people in 193
countries have signed up this year.
R
ich Hardy, head of campaigns at Veganuary, said
that in one day alone 14,000
people pledged to go vegan for the
first month of 2019, a rate of one
every six seconds – and he is
predicting that 2019 will be the year
of the vegan.
“Last year there hasn’t been a
week that has gone by without
veganism hitting the headlines.
Whether it is a magazine editor
being fired [for insulting vegans] or
Waitrose launching a new range of
products.
“Vegan products are getting a lot
better and it is becoming a lot more
convenient to have a tasty
plant-based diet.”
Hardy suggested that stark
warnings from scientists about the
environmental cost of meat are
what
have
persuaded
many
Britons to give veganism a try. Last
MEAT-FREE APPEAL: McDonald’s offers a Spicy Veggie
Wrap, left. Above: Bakers Greggs’ vegan ‘sausage roll’
FIVE REASONS TO TURN VEGAN
1. Animal welfare
There are many reasons why people decide to turn
vegan. Chief among them is concern over animal
welfare. According to Peta (People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals), animals form emotional
relationships and dairy cows and lambs show
signs of extreme distress when they are separated
from their young to be fattened, ahead of
slaughter. It estimates that one vegan saves nearly
200 animals per year.
2. Help your health
Fans argue that adopting a vegan diet can help you
live a healthier and happier life, whether you want
to lose weight or boost your energy levels.
3. Balanced diet
With a carefully planned diet, vegans can get all
the nutrients they need to be healthy, such as plant
protein, fibre and minerals.
4. Save the planet
Animal agriculture is the single greatest source of
greenhouse gases, according to environmental
organisation Worldwatch.
5. Discover new tastes
Bloggers such as Deliciously Ella and celebrities
such as Lucy Watson promote a plant-based
lifestyle, with a host of new recipes to try.
May, the most comprehensive analysis to date of the damage done to
the planet by farming declared that
avoiding meat and dairy products
was the single most significant
thing an individual could do to help
the environment.
“A vegan diet is probably the
single biggest way to reduce your
impact on Planet Earth,” said
Joseph Poore, of Oxford University,
who led the research.
“That’s not just in terms of greenhouse gases but global acidification, eutrophication [which leads
to the out-of-control growth of
algae on waterways], land use and
water use. It is far bigger than
cutting down on your flights or
buying an electric car.”
In response to growing demand
CHOICE:
Waitrose
increased
its range
of vegan
dishes by
233 per
cent last
year to
cater for
new tastes
from shoppers looking to eat vegan
and vegetarian meals, Waitrose
increased its vegan offering by 233
per cent in 2018 and its annual
Food & Drink Report showed that
one in eight Britons is now vegetarian or vegan, and 21 per cent of
people now identify as “flexitarian”
– people who increase their intake
of plant-based meals without completely eliminating meat.
Waitrose managing director Rob
Collins said: “Being mindful of how
we live and eat has become a priority in today’s world.”
Yesterday McDonald’s launched
its vegetarian Happy Meal, which is
also vegan-friendly, with the help of
The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge.
“I think it’s important that our
diet is varied and full of choice,”
she said. “And for me at the
moment, this means introducing
more meat-free meals.
“The Veggie Happy Meal wrap
flavour was literally chosen by children, so I know it’s something that
my son Parker will love too.”
The fast-food giant created the
meat-free meal along with the Vegetarian Society and the BritMums
network, which asked a panel of
parents and children to choose the
final flavours.
A
fter sampling a whole
range of options, tasters
settled on a final red pesto
recipe, which has been accredited
by the Vegetarian Society.
Adults wanting a vegetarian meal
now also have another option – the
Spicy Veggie Wrap, which is made
with red pesto goujons wrapped in
a toasted tortilla, with spicy relish,
tomato, lettuce and red onion.
The Greggs vegan sausage roll
has been designed to mirror some
of its meaty cousin’s classic
features, including 96 layers of light
and crisp puff pastry, but is made
with a Quorn filling. “Like many
food retailers we have seen increasing demand for vegetarian and
vegan products,” says Roger Whiteside, chief executive of Greggs.
“We have been trying to develop
a vegan version of our famous sausage roll for some time now.
“It has not been easy but our
taste panel customers all love this
one, so we have decided to
launch it as our contribution to
Veganuary.”
Television presenter Chris Packham is among the celebrities to
sign up to Veganuary along with
Tory MP Andrea Jenkyns and
Labour MP Kerry McCarthy.
Vegan food is no longer about
quinoa and dry nut roasts, there
are more options out there.
From vegan roasts to sweet
treats to the best meat-free fast
food, there are enough vegan alternatives to satisfy the most dedicated of carnivores.
But like all new year resolutions,
sticking to veganism can be tricky.
Rich Hardy said: “If you fall off the
wagon, you fall off the wagon.”
“Just pick yourself up, remind
yourself why you signed up to the
pledge in the first place and start
afresh. It is meant to be fun and
enjoyable.”

Let’s have common sense
over sugar in our diet
THERE seems to be a maxim in
government that if you can’t buy
your way out of a problem then you
can tax your way out of it; and
always make sure that the finger of
blame is pointing at someone else
(“Children who have guzzled 20st of
sugar by age of 10”, January 2).
Now, it’s sugar that is in the news
and exactly the same tactics are
being used. We are made to feel
that it is bad parents who give their
children too much sugar rather
BREXIT Secretary Stephen Barclay is
mistaken in saying that Theresa May’s
withdrawal agreement is the only workable
plan that delivers on the result of the 2016
referendum (“Brace yourself for a no deal
Brexit”, January 3).
He is correct in saying that it is not perfect,
it’s far from that. However, a no-deal exit
delivers perfectly on what 17.4 million people
voted for – out of the EU completely and on
our terms, not half in and half out.
Those opposed to no deal, or any deal,
include Remoaners and arch europhiles like
Tony Blair and Anna Soubry and dinosaurs
who don’t like change or have a vested interest
in remaining in the EU.
Project Fear prophets forecasting economic
armageddon after the referendum were just
spouting fake news.
There will be no cliff edge, no crashing out,
just a fabulous opportunity which will prove
the UK and its people can rise to any challenge
and prosper far better than in the EU.

than irresponsible manufacturers
who feel the need to put sugar into
everything from beans to yogurt.
Instead of forcing manufacturers
to reduce levels, or remove sugar
from their products, we are taxed
on sugary drinks. Isn’t it about time
for some good, old-fashioned,
commonsense, joined-up thinking.
The Government has shown that
throwing money at a problem
doesn’t help so let’s try managing
and legislating instead.

Be grateful for NHS and
treat it with more respect
IF 15 million people fail to turn up
for a doctor’s appointment then
that is why the NHS should start
charging a nominal fee of say £5
which is non-refundable if you don’t
show (“15m patients fail to turn up
for their GP”, January 2).
The result would be patients only
visiting their doctor if absolutely
necessary, freeing up more time for
genuine appointments.
Here in Jersey, you can pay as
much as £50 to visit your GP, then
fees for extras such as blood tests,
smears, X-rays and ear syringing,
are charged on top of that.
Many surgeries bill you for a
no-show. The UK should be grateful
it has the NHS and start treating it
with the respect it deserves.

Deliver a full stop to the
flawed use of apostrophes
OH, how I agree with Fergus Kelly
when he writes about the phantom
apostrophe (“Possessing ninetenths of law”, January 2).
Some years ago, I used to play in
a pub quiz team and at the end of
each round, we used to mark each
others’ papers.
I remember the answer to one
question being the Christian
missionary Gladys Aylward.
And how was her name spelt by
the person concerned? That’s right
– Glady’s.
Some people just think if it ends
in an ‘s’ you should put an
apostrophe there.

IT’S so easy to
yearn for a life
in the country
when you get stressed at
work.
But it’s your attitude
to life and not where you
live that makes you
happy – or not, as the
case may be.
Living in the country
involves losing many of
the creature comforts
which help make life
easier, like a local shop,
restaurants and even,
these days, a local pub.
It can be very lonely
too. It reminds me of all
the people who retired to
a new life in the
countryside in France a
few decades ago and
then realised there was
nothing to do and it was
all very boring.

Will acne shampoo hit the spot?

Q
dog has oozing spots on his
chin which he rubs on the carpet.
My vet suspects acne and has
prescribed antiseptic shampoo.
Have you seen acne in dogs?
ACNE is common in young
A
short-haired dogs. The
underlying reasons why some
breeds, such as terriers,
weimaraners, bulldogs and great
Danes, are susceptible is not well
understood.
Trauma from rubbing the
carpet may push hairs deep into
the skin, causing a reaction.
Infestation with the
microscopic mite Demodex may
be an underlying cause, too, and
because acne tends to occur
in shorthaired pedigree dogs
there may be genetic defects in

some affected dogs. Secondary
infection with bacteria is usually
present.
Acne in dogs is similar to that
in humans. It tends to occur in
young pups before puberty and
many cases get better once they
mature. However canine acne
only affects the chin.
Diagnosis is straightforward as
the signs are typical.
Examining any discharge under
the microscope is useful though
to rule out mites, as well as the
role of bacteria as secondary
invaders. I agree with your vet’s
approach. If you are able to get
any infection under control you
will prevent it getting worse and
hopefully allow time for a
spontaneous cure.
Antibiotics are necessary for
deeper infections but with
antibiotic resistance a major
problem, many vets choose to
prescribe shampoos first to see
whether they control the problem
without having to prescribe
antibiotics.

Trailblazer still
By Andy Lea
RBG HHHH
(Cert PG, 98mins)
W
E will hear a
lot more about
US Supreme
Court justice
Ruth Bader
Ginsburg when
period drama On The Basis Of
Sex is released in cinemas across
the UK next month.
That film, starring Felicity
Jones, is a powerful but very
traditional biopic that focuses on
Ginsburg’s trailblazing legal
cases which helped to end
rampant sex discrimination in
America in the 1970s.
This documentary, RBG, isn’t
structurally groundbreaking
either. Filmmakers Julie Cohen
and Betsy West smartly keep the
stylistic flourishes to a minimum
and let their subject to do the
talking. When faced with this
determined and furiously
intelligent lawyer, this is perhaps
the only way to behave.
The title comes from a blog
called Notorious RBG which has
helped to turn this tiny, fraillooking 85-year-old into an icon
for liberals and women across
America. Her current notoriety
comes from her role as an
eloquent dissenter in a Supreme
Court that’s stacked in favour of
the right wing of the US
Republican party.
When it abolished two
provisions of the Voting Rights
Act on the grounds that its
protections were no longer
needed – arguably making it
harder for minority voters to vote
– Ginsburg wrote: “It is like
throwing your umbrella away in
a rainstorm because you’re not
getting wet.”
The film shows how most of
her successes have stemmed
from her ability to win over her
rivals with a calm voice and
implacable logic. In one
fascinating interview, Ruth says
she learnt composure from her
mother: “Never in anger, she told

me; that would have been
self-defeating.”
When facing the all-male
Supreme Court in the 70s, she
says she behaved “as a kind of
kindergarten teacher because
the judges didn’t think sex
discrimination existed”.
It was this composure that saw
her through her student days
when she was one of just nine
women in her Harvard Law
School class of 500.
When her husband and fellow
student Marty was diagnosed
with cancer, Ruth doubled up on
her work and attended Marty’s
lectures as well as her own. At
the time she was also a young
mother so she would come home,
put the baby to bed and then
start studying, often surviving on
a couple of hours’ sleep a night.
Her loving 54-year marriage to
Marty provides the film’s heart.
Marty was a joker and Ginsburg
was sober and serious. But it
seems the partnership worked.
Her children say they saw her
smile so rarely that they collated
a book of incidents called
Mummy Laughs. But the film
manages to capture her cracking
up when watching Kate
McKinnon play her on a
Saturday Night Live TV spoof.
We also get some joyful footage
of her working out at the gym.

Many of us may be
stockpiling groceries in
preparation for Brexit
but there is no shortage
of entertainment to
distract us this year.
The British theatre
scene has rarely looked
so healthy, with an
avalanche of musicals
and plays, old favourites
and brand new works.
Many of these are
based on films or
television series to give
them a head start at the
box office, including
snarling bitchfest All
About Eve (Noël
Coward Theatre,
Feb-May) starring
Gillian Anderson and
Lily James as the rival
actresses played in the
movie by Bette Davis
and Anne Baxter.
For lighter relief, Paul
Whitehouse and Jim
Sullivan’s play version
of Only Fools And
Horses (Theatre Royal
Haymarket, Feb-Jun)
will be a hot ticket for
fans of Del Boy and
Rodney.
The fact that Dolly
Parton has produced
9 To 5: The Musical
starring Louise
Redknapp and Bonnie
Langford gives it gold
star status (Savoy
Theatre, Jan-Aug
followed by UK tour)
while bona fide classics
like Mary Poppins
(Prince Edward
Theatre, autumn),
West Side Story
(Royal Exchange
Theatre, Manchester,
April-May) and The
Rocky Horror Show
(UK tour until
November) are all ready
to entertain you.
The nation’s stages
are also attracting an
increasing number of
American stars who
PLONKERS: Only Fools And Horses on stage
enjoy the kudos and the
reception from British
audiences.
Kelsey “Frasier”
Grammer makes a
welcome return to the
UK in the Quixotic

Mancha (London
Coliseum, April-June)
while the revival of
Arthur Miller’s All My

TOY STORY:
The model cast
of Welcome
To Marwen with
Steve Carell
personal trainer. Ginsburg has
survived cancer twice and the film
relates how Democrats urged her to
resign during the Barack Obama
years so he could replace her with a
younger liberal. If she is forced to
hang up her gown, Donald Trump
will organise her replacement.
Thankfully, it seems there’s
plenty of fight left in this
remarkable woman.
WELCOME TO MARWEN HH
(Cert 12A, 116mins)
YOU won’t have seen anything
quite like the animated sequences
in this original drama from Forrest
Gump director Robert Zemeckis.
And I doubt you’ve ever met
anyone quite like Steve Carell’s
version of the artist Mark
Hogancamp. After being creeped
out by his supposedly uplifting
story, you may be glad you haven’t.
In 2000, Mark was beaten into a
coma by gang of homophobes
outside a bar after confessing that
(Harold Pinter
Theatre, March-June),
one of the playwright’s
greatest plays that
climaxes the
outstanding Pinter
Season. And David
Suchet gets serious in
another Arthur Miller
revival, The Price
(Wyndham’s Theatre,
Feb-April).
Among the musicals,
Notre Dame de
Paris (London
Coliseum, Jan 23-27)
arrives for the first
time since 2000, with a
fanfare from France.
For those who fancy
something more
challenging I suggest
Berberian Sound
Studio (Donmar
Warehouse, Feb-Mar),
an intriguing play
based on Peter
Strickland’s
wonderfully weird
movie about a sound
he liked to wear women’s shoes.
After regaining his ability to walk
and talk, Mark turned his trauma
into a bizarre form of art.
He created a tiny replica of a
Belgian town called Marwencol
(here it’s just Marwen), filled it with
plastic dolls based on the women
who helped him during his recovery
and took a series of photographs
where he made them pose with an
Action Man version of himself.
The pictures were the basis of an
exhibition that transformed Mark
from a traumatised victim into a
respected artist.
Zemeckis turns the photographs
into animated action movies. Here
a motion-captured Steve Carell is
reborn as grizzled Action Man
Captain Hoagie who is protected
from Nazis by a gang of heavily
armed and scantily clad Barbies
who look like Janelle Monáe,
Merritt Wever, Eiza González, Leslie
Mann and Diane Kruger.
But Carell’s Mark is lifeless. For
the film to pack an emotional
punch, we needed to be on his side.
But when Nicole befriends Mark,
you want to tell her to run a mile.
LIFE ITSELF HH
(Cert 15, 117mins)
THERE are dumb films and there
are clever films and I’ve given
five-star reviews to entertaining
examples of both. But Life Itself is
something else – a really stupid
movie that thinks it has solved the
mystery of the human condition.
The film is divided into four
“chapters” and tells different
stories that intersect at a car
accident.
Antonio Banderas plays the
stepfather of a Spanish boy who
witnesses the tragedy, Oscar Isaac
is a grieving widower, Annette
Bening is his therapist and Olivia
Cooke is the victim’s daughter.
Writer/director Dan Fogleman
made his name penning family films
for Disney and Pixar. His eureka
moment is revealed about halfway
through this time-jumping drama.
Olivia’s Wilde’s supposedly clever
English literature student is writing
an essay on “unreliable narrators”
when she comes across what she
effects man working
on an Italian horror
movie. Alternatively,
When We Have
Sufficiently
Tortured Each
Other (National
Theatre, Jan-Mar)
may have an offputting title but its
star Cate Blanchett is
big enough to make it
one of the hottest
tickets of the year.
Of all the revivals,
one of the most
anticipated is Caryl
Churchill’s Top Girls
(National Theatre,
from March). I also
like the sound of the
reimagined version of
The Taming Of The
Shrew (Sherman
Theatre, Cardiff,
Feb-Mar), set in a
world in which women
hold all the power. And
the prospect of seeing
a stage musical version
31
of Bill Forsyth’s movie
Local Hero (Royal
Lyceum Theatre,
Edinburgh, Mar-April)
is made even more
irresistible by the fact
that all the songs have
been written by Mark
Knopfler.
Another movieturned-stage-musical
is The Color Purple
(Curve, Leicester,
June; Birmingham
Hippodrome, July).
And One Night in
Miami (Nottingham
Playhouse, June) is
about the meeting
between Sam Cooke,
Cassius Clay, Malcolm
X and US football star
Jim Brown.
Whatever else
happens, theatregoers
are in for an exciting
2019. Happy New Year.
NEIL NORMAN
@NJStreitberger
thinks is a fresh angle. “Life
itself is the ultimate unreliable
narrator!” she shrieks.
Fogelman’s “big idea” is that
we all lie to ourselves as we
construct a narrative from
the chaos of our lives.
Banderas shines
but the story is so
over-written you
can almost hear
the clickety-clack
of the keyboard.
THE 12th MAN HHHH
(Cert 15, 133mins)
PROVIDING they can cope with
subtitles, fans of old-fashioned
war movies should love
this harrowing true
story set in Nazioccupied Norway.
Thomas Gullestad
puts in a flinty turn as
Norwegian national
hero Jan Baalsrud, one
of 12 British-trained
commandos who took
part in a 1943 mission
to sabotage the
German war
machine. The
mission hit the rocks
shortly after their boat reached
Scandinavian waters. Baalsrud
escaped but his 11 comrades
were captured or killed.
As Gestapo officer Kurt Stage
(Jonathan Rhys Meyers, left)
organises a search party,
Baalsrud swims through icy
lakes, hides on frozen fjords and
relies on strangers’ bravery.
Irish star Meyers is chilling as
the increasingly desperate Nazi
who knows the 12th man’s escape
is becoming a propaganda coup
for the Norwegian resistance.
His performance is all the more
impressive because he delivers all
his lines in German. But it is
Baalsrud’s superhuman feats of
endurance that keep us hooked.

MUSIC my six best ALBUMS
JACK SAVORETTI
JACK SAVORETTI, 35, is a singersongwriter who has had two Top Ten
albums and is a Radio 2 favourite. He
duetted with Kylie Minogue on her
single Music’s Too Sad Without You.
His album Singing To Strangers is
out on March 15 and his latest single
is Candlelight. He tours from May 23.
PAUL SIMON: Graceland
(Sony)
My desert island disc.
Travelling throughout
Europe as a kid, this was
the only cassette my
friend and I had.
We thought we’d hate
it by the end but it’s
amazing how it always
feels fresh. There’s so much
good storytelling on it.
BOB DYLAN: Nashville Skyline
(Columbia/Sony)
My guitarist gave me this when I first
moved to London. The power of
Dylan is you never really know what
he’s talking about but for some
reason you get it.
It’s easy to be literal and say how
you feel but there’s nothing
magical about that.
BUENA VISTA SOCIAL
CLUB: Buena Vista
Social Club
BEN HARPER: The Will To Live
(Virgin)
The second album I ever bought. It’s
very rootsy. I didn’t know what a
singer-songwriter was until I
discovered this album.
It was a catalyst for me to think, “I
don’t have to put a band together, I
can just sing about what I’m feeling.”
BLIND MELON: Nico
(EMI)
The cover got my attention: a young
guy dressed like I was, holding his
arm with lyrics tattooed on it.
It’s really rough around the edges
but it was as if anybody could make
it. I found my niche in the grunge
movement with this.
(World Circuit)
After this documentary
came out, I was lucky I
got to see them in
Switzerland, where I was
living.
When these 80-year-old
Cuban men came on stage, I
thought it was going to be silly.
Then the music began and
suddenly the stage looked like it was
filled with teenagers.
Incredible.
OTIS REDDING: The Very Best Of
(Rhino)
Otis gives me everything I try to find
in my voice when I sing: pain, love,
happiness and sadness.
He can punch you in the face with
his voice but also put his hand on
your shoulder.
That’s always what I attempt.
Listening to him gave me the courage
to shout – just get it out.

Few contemporaries captured Britain’s indomitable

the cartoons he produced between 1939 and 1945
are brought together, including many that have
not seen the light of day in over 75 years. Giles’s

Fiction
Leila Slimani’s Lullaby was a
big breakout hit last year. Her
follow-up Adele (February, Faber,
£12.99) tells the story of a married
Parisian mother whose life
appears perfect from the outside.
But she is risking everything as
she battles an insatiable sex
addiction.
The incomparable Nina Stibbe,
author of Love, Nina, revisits the
world of Man At The Helm in
Reasons To Be Cheerful
(March, Viking, £12.99) in which our
teenage heroine Lizzie falls in
love with the wrong person in
1970s Leicester. Expect
emotional acuity and belly
laughs.
Tessa Hadley’s late-flowering
career goes from
strength to strength
with Late In The Day
(February, Cape, £16.99).
Two couples have been
close friends since they
met in their twenties
but 30 years later one
of them dies and the
friendship of the
remaining three warps
as old grievances rise
to the surface.
Ian McEwan has set
his latest novel
Machines Like Me
(April, Jonathan Cape,
£18.99) in an
alternative 1980s
London where Charlie
buys a synthetic
human and designs its
personality with
Miranda, the woman
he loves. A love
triangle forms in a
novel that explores
what makes us human
and asks whether a
machine could ever understand
the human heart.
The new novel from Mark
Haddon, author of The Curious
Incident Of The Dog In The
Night-Time, lands in May (Chatto,
£18.99). The Porpoise promises
to whisk the reader off on a wild,
dramatic journey based on the
epic tale of Pericles, Prince of
Tyre, switching between ancient
times and the present day, but is
at heart the story of a family lost
to one another and seeking a
place to call home.
Thomas Harris, the author of
The Silence Of The Lambs,
returns in May. This as-yet
untitled standalone novel (William
Heinemann, £20) is his first in 13
years and his first non-Hannibal
Lecter story in more than 40
years. And a new Jackson Brodie
crime novel from the brilliant
Kate Atkinson will land in June.
Big Sky (Transworld, £20) comes
Charlotte Heathcote and Jon
nine years after the
private investigator’s
last outing.
Sweet Sorrow is
the new novel from
David Nicholls, author
of One Day (July,
Hodder, £20) and is in
the author’s words a
tragicomedy exploring
“the heart-stopping
thrill of first love”.
Charlie is only 16 and
already his life is not
going to plan. Then he
is “suddenly offered an
opportunity to change his
fortunes”.
In August, look out for
the debut novel from
Robert Webb, the
comedian and author of
the affecting and
profound memoir How
Not To Be A Boy. Come
Again (Canongate, price
tbc) blends time travel
and romance.
A new Robert Harris
novel lands in September
(Hutchinson) and while no
details are available yet,
a book from the author
of Enigma and
Fatherland will inevitably
hit the bestseller lists.
Margaret Atwood’s
follow up to The
Handmaid’s Tale is one
of the most eagerly
anticipated novels of the
year. At the end of that
modern classic, we didn’t
know whether our
heroine Offred faced
freedom, prison or death.
All is revealed at last in The
Testaments (September, Chatto,
£20) which Atwood says was
inspired by “the world
we’ve been living in”.
A new John le Carré
novel is always an
event and Agent
Running In The
Field (October, Viking,
£20), his 25th, is also
inspired by our
turbulent times. The
story of a 26-yearold loner who
finds himself on
a dangerous
path, it is billed
as “an exhilarating novel
that confronts the
division and rage at the
heart of our modern
world”.
Finally two household
names are the latest
celebrities to turn their
hands to children’s
fiction. Paul McCartney
has written a picture
book, Hey Grandude!
(September, Puffin, £12.99).
As he explains: “I’ve got
eight grandchildren and
one day one of them said to me
‘Hey Grandude!’ and from then
on I was kind of known as
Grandude.” It’s the story of a
magical grandfather who takes
his grandchildren on adventures.
And Sophie Dahl’s first
children’s book Madame
Badobedah (Walker Books) is
published in October. Mabel lives
in a hotel by the sea and when
the imperious Madame
Badobedah checks in, Mabel is
fascinated by her exotic pets and
her trunks full of gold. The pair
strike up an unexpected
friendship and embark upon
fantastical escapades. CH

THE COMPLETE
SHERLOCK HOLMES
by Arthur Conan Doyle
Out of print
I’m obsessed with Sherlock
Holmes. I enjoy his
deductions. I rush around a
lot so I appreciate someone
who sits and watches. I spend
a lot of time in the car so
listen to a lot of audiobooks.
I listened to the original and
then found out that Stephen
Fry had done them, so I
listened to another 75 hours.
The Silent Patient by Alex
Michaelides (February, Orion, £12.99) is
one of the most hotly anticipated
debuts of this year. After shooting
her husband five times, Alicia
Berenson refuses to speak. Forensic
psychotherapist Theo Faber
believes he can break through her
silence but soon realises he may not
want to hear the truth.
Caroline Lea’s The Glass
Woman (February, Michael Joseph,
£12.99) is a debut set in 1686 in a
windswept land haunted by witch
trials. After moving to a remote
village in Iceland, Rosa discovers
that her new husband buried his
first wife alone in the dead of night.
But he won’t tell her why and a
mounting sense of menace leaves
her fearing for her life.
Harriet Tyce’s Blood Orange
(February, Wildfire, £12.99) is billed as
an “electrifying debut thriller”
which introduces a “stunning
new voice in psychological
suspense”. Barrister

THE GIRL WITH THE
DRAGON TATTOO
by Stieg Larsson
MacLehose, £8.99
My partner Chloe got me into
the Millennium trilogy.
I watched the movie first

So it gave the characters

snowy the setting was before I
read it.
I like books that fuel my
imagination and this is well
written.
MYTHOS
by Stephen Fry
Penguin, £8.99
I did classics at school.
They’re the original stories

perspective on the stories
about the likes of Gaia and
Midas.

The year taken by storm
E
ARLIER on today,
apparently, a woman rang
the BBC and said she’d
heard that there was a
hurricane on the way. Well,
if you’re watching, don’t
worry, there isn’t…”
That’s a famous quote from BBC
weatherman Michael Fish,
broadcast on Thursday, October 15,
1987. If you’re old enough to
remember it, you’re old enough to
remember what happened a few
hours later. If you’re not, I’m sure
you can guess. Yes, exactly – a
hurricane, or certainly a jolly strong
wind, let’s not get bogged down in
the technicalities, hit a huge chunk
of southern Britain, and, well,
relocated it to northern France.
All right, I’m exaggerating a tad.
But it really was jolly blowy, let me
tell you. Homes were destroyed,
Mike Ward

tonight’s TV
trees torn from the ground, cars
overturned and sent tumbling
down the road, chased by eager
traffic wardens who prayed they’d
land on yellow lines. It was like
Armageddon.
And I mention all this because?
Because it’s one of the big stories
featured tonight on TOP OF THE
POPS: THE STORY OF 1987
(BBC4, 9pm), another of those
retrospectives where we look back
on a year in pop history against the
backdrop of its major news events.
Another story from that year is
Maggie Thatcher winning a third
term as PM. Yet another is that
they started building some sort of
tunnel under the channel between
Britain and France (possibly so
they could drive through it and
retrieve those bits of southern
England that Michael Fish’s
non-existent hurricane had
dumped there).
But enough of the newsy
recollections, what about the
music? Who was really big back
then? Well, since you ask, a
Lancashire lad called Rick Astley
was huge, albeit not physically.
Never Gonna Give You Up was
what he sang on Top Of The Pops
that summer. “It would hopefully be
believable,” he recalls thinking at

established pop stars with a fine
line in self-deprecation.
By the end of this programme,
my overriding feeling isn’t so much
“Wasn’t 1987 a great year for pop?”
as “Wouldn’t Carol and Rick be
great to have over for dinner?”
Elsewhere tonight, in
CELEBRITY 5 GO CAMPING
(Channel 5, 8pm), we find out
what happened when Bobby
Davro (left), Joe Swash,
Cheryl Baker, Stephen
Bailey and Michelle
Collins decided to
sample life under
canvas in Dorset. Or at
least we begin to. It
actually runs for five
weeks, this series. And
yes, I know what you’re
thinking. That’s not
nearly enough, is it?
DID YOU KNOW? Jeremy Wade is the son of a vicar. He once
worked as a biology teacher at a secondary school and
speaks French, Portuguese and Spanish. During his travels
he has been detained as a spy and survived a plane crash.

Earlier this week in these column
inches we talked about veganism and
how the discussion around it seems to
be everywhere and this is further
proof to back that statement up. Jamie
Oliver and Jimmy Doherty kick off the
new year with their first all-vegan
menu, joined in the cafe by comedian
Romesh Ranganathan (left, with the
hosts). Embracing the spirit of
veganuary, Jamie creates an
alternative lasagne for Romesh and
Jimmy’s creative skills are put to good
use when he builds a cold press to
help a 16-year-old DIY enthusiast who
wants to find a solution to fallen
apples. The boys also take a trip to
learn more about the world’s first fully
vegan football stadium.

about 11 years old.”
Also, T’Pau reached No.1 with
China In Your Hand, the one
everybody remembers them for. But
singer Carol Decker actually
preferred their earlier release,
Heart And Soul, a sort of
rappy thing.
“I actually invented rap,”
she tells the programme,
“and I do not get the credit
for it that I deserve.”
She’s joking, of course.
Like Rick, she’s older,
wiser and witty enough
to be able to laugh at
her former self. And
that’s actually one of

Geography: Jeremy
Wade’s Mighty Rivers,
ITV, 8pm
There appears to be
evidence that some of the
world’s most iconic rivers
are in declining health,
prompting biologist,
extreme angler and
naturalist Jeremy Wade
(left) to investigate the
disappearance of
freshwater giants from the
planet’s largest waterways
in this new series. He
begins by heading to the
River Danube in search of
two giant beasts – a fish
so valuable criminals are
hunting it out of existence
and a man-sized predator.

Following the success of the opening Fifty Shades movie,
which smashed a number of box office records upon its
release back in 2015, it was no surprise when plans
for a follow-up were announced soon afterwards.
The sequel fails to hit the heights of the opener but
offers enough as fans once again set foot into the
world of bookish nerd Anastasia Steele and damaged
billionaire playboy Christian Grey as they continue their
sadomasochistic relationship. This time, however, the
couple’s safety is threatened by strangers from his past.
Drama, starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan,
Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes and Rita Ora.

FRESH DIRECTION:
Homes are still
available at Warren
Grove while
Rosewood Park, inset,
is under development
A
t an age when most people are
looking forward to downsizing, Jo
and Kevin Rose have bucked the
trend and upsized despite being in
their 50s. Likewise Chris Twine, 66,
and partner Beverly Etherington,
53, have moved from a three-bedroom house
to a new-build with four bedrooms.
Jo and Kevin, aged 51 and 52, moved from
their small London home to a four-bedroom
house at Beaufort Place near Crawley, West
Sussex, to enjoy a better standard of life,
while Chris and Beverley moved to be closer
to their parents.
But both couples are enjoying an
unexpected bonus: better house insulation,
which means lower energy bills.
“Although we have upsized into a bigger
home, the property is actually much easier
to run,” says Jo, who can still commute to
her London job easily while Kevin is closer
to his work in Crawley. “It’s crazy. Our bills
ON THE UP:
Upsizing proved
to be the right
move for Jo
and Kevin
Rose
Warm to new ways
Makers of Fine Leather Furniture
Since 1981
are literally half the price of what they used
to be – and our house is more than double
the size. As well as being much cheaper to
run, our new home is just so lovely and cosy
and warm, making it enjoyable to live in. We
come home every night and just feel so
lucky to live here.”
It’s a similar story for Chris and Beverly,
who previously lived in a Victorian house
but moved to Bexhill so they could be
halfway between each set of parents but
close to Macmillan Nurse Beverly’s work
in Hastings.
“The insulation is really high quality, so
we know that our house will stay warmer
and therefore reduce our energy bills, which
is a great bonus,” says Chris. “We are
really happy to have found a home that
will suit our needs as we get older, too,
and we don’t have to worry about things
going wrong.”
Future-proofing was also important for
Kevin and Jo, who says: “We have thought
about our long-term future by moving here.
The property is laid out so that in the long
term we, or a potential carer, could live on
one floor of the property if needed.
“It may seem like a long time away but
the reality is that we don’t want to move
again and so we needed to make sure the
property worked for us in the future. We are
very happy.”
All the properties on their Barratt Homes’
Beaufort Place development are now
reserved but there are three and fourbedroom houses on offer at its nearby
Warren Grove development in Storrington,
West Sussex, where prices start from
£329,995 for a three-bedroom semi-detached
house (barratthomes.co.uk).
Meanwhile Rosewood Park in Bexhill-onSea will be a development of 239 apartments
and houses once complete, set among
mature trees and with children’s play areas
within the development.
It’s near shops and restaurants, a GPs’
surgery and dental practice, as well as being
three miles from Bexhill railway station and
just along the coast from Eastbourne and
Brighton.
Four-bedroom semi-detached homes
are available from £399,995 with onebedroom flats from £172,995 (0844 501
0768; dwh.co.uk).
Comfort
“New homes typically offer so much in
terms of comfort, warmth and liveability
and so many homeowners find that
compared with older homes they are
considerably easier to run,” says Lynnette
St Quintin, sales director for Barratt
Southern Counties.
“With modern insulation and improved
construction methods making homes up to
50 per cent more efficient, many
homeowners may find that a bigger home in
terms of bedroom numbers is actually an
easier option.
“Buyers of new homes will often find it
hard to ever consider buying an older
property again, given the convenience they
offer, not to mention the lower utility bills.”

CAN you crack the
Alphabeater? Each grid

the alphabet is used. But
you have to complete the
grid too! Use the given
letters and black squares
below the grid to start. The
grid is ‘rotationally
symmetrical’ – in other
words, it looks the same if
you turn the page upside
down. Solution tomorrow.

RUPERT’S ODD STORY No 31
Rupert pours out his questions.
“Where did you vanish to?” he
demands. “Was it you who caused
that very odd party?” “Yes, yes, of
course!” chuckles the doll. “I
promised you a happy party so I
filled a cracker with laughing
powder and put it back on the
table.” “So it was your laughing
cracker that I picked up first of all!”
exclaims Rupert. “What a bit of
luck! That explains everything.” The
doll darts out of sight just as Mrs
Bear enters to put out the light.

INGREDIENTS
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
Your life is out of balance. You’re
spending too much time on work and other
responsibilities and too little on activities you
enjoy. Reducing commitments is the quickest
way to create more time for yourself. If you
have to delegate work, so be it.

Next boosted
by sales surge
A LATE online spending spree
brought festive sales cheer to Next,
but the cost of web orders will dent
annual profits as shoppers deserted
the high street.
The fashion chain restored some
confidence to the battered retail
sector with bumper trading in the
three weeks to Christmas. A good
half-term holiday week at the end of
October also made up for a poor
November due to mild weather.
Sales grew by 1.5 per cent in the
last two months of 2018 compared
with the previous year, but figures
provided a stark reminder of how
changing shopping habits are
hurting physical stores.
Sales at Next’s high street outlets
were down by a sharper than
expected 9.2 per cent, offset by 15.2
per cent online growth.
It expects to hit the annual sales
growth target of 3.2 per cent, but
annual profit is set to come in
£4million below its previous forecast
of £727million.
This is due to higher sales of lower
margin seasonal gifts and beauty
products, as well as higher costs

associated with improved online
sales. It expects to grow sales next
year by 1.7 per cent, with an 8.5 per
cent drop in high street trading and
online sales up 11 per cent.
Next year’s profit is forecast to fall
by about 1 per cent to £715million
but the company expects to remain
“strongly cash generative”. Shares
rose 173p to 4350p.
Chief executive Lord Wolfson said:
“November was very disappointing.
To some extent the money that was
not spent in November we found was
spent in December.
“People are talking about a
subdued consumer, but there’s very
little evidence. People are maybe a
little bit more cautious given the
uncertainties around Brexit.”
Richard Lim, of consultancy Retail
Economics, said: “The ongoing shift
towards online, fiercer competitor
dynamics and softer consumer confidence have damaged in-store sales.
“This will likely set the tone for
other retailers with a large physical
footprint.”
Building at a 3-month low
SLOWER housebuilding growth and waning
demand for commercial projects put the brakes
on construction in December.
Activity across the sector, which generates
about 6 per cent of the UK’s economic output,
expanded at its slowest pace for three
months, despite a sustained rebound in civil
engineering.
The IHS Markit/CIPS purchasing managers’
index fell from 53.4 in November to 52.8.
A reading above 50 means growth. Housebuilding grew for the 11th straight month, but
unusually wet weather affected work.
But confidence is at its highest since April on
hopes of a boost to growth from work on
big-ticket transport and energy infrastructure
projects.

MUSIC firm Hipgnosis, which
offers investors the chance to
cash in on royalties, has
struck a multi-million pound
deal to acquire Giorgio
Tuinfort’s catalogue.
The multiple Grammy
award-winning songwriter has
written for the likes of Ariana
Grande, pictured, Gwen
Stefani, Lionel Richie and
David Guetta. The catalogue
comprises of 182 songs.
Hipgnosis was founded by
Sir Elton John’s former

and listed in London last year
raising £200million.
It has acquired several
catalogues in recent months,
including that of Justin Bieber
collaborator Jason Boyd.
Mercuriadis said: “Giorgio
is arguably the most

the last 20 years.”
Tuinfort described
Mercuriadis as a visionary
who “recognises the value of
one of mankind’s greatest
gifts; music”.

Sceaux hoping
for plenty of rain
CONNECTIONS of
11-times Grade One
winner Un De Sceaux
are praying for rain
ahead of a rematch
against two-mile
champion chaser Altior
in the Clarence House
Chase at Ascot
tomorrow week.
The 11-year-old,
trained by Willie
Mullins, pushed
Altior to the
limit in the
Tingle Creek
at Sandown
and has won
the Clarence
House for the
last three years.
His owners
By Neil Randon
believe very soft ground
will give him the best
chance of revenge.
“I’d love it to be an
absolute mud bath in
Swinley Bottom,” said
part-owner Colm
O’Connell.

EXCLUSIVE

TENNIS
BOXING
BRITISH No 1 Kyle
Edmund has pledged
to do “everything he
can” to be fit for the
Australian Open after
suffering a knee injury.
The 23-year-old, who
reached the semi-finals
in Melbourne last year,
has withdrawn from
next week’s Sydney
International, which
was set to be his final
warm-up event.
“I need to focus on
my preparations for the
first Grand Slam of the
year,” he said.
BRITISH pair James
DeGale and Chris
Eubank jnr will meet at
The O2 on February 23.
The non-title supermiddleweight clash is
the first of a new deal
between ITV and
Haymon Sports’
Premier Boxing
Champions series.
DeGale said: “I
believe Eubank doesn’t
have the pedigree, size
and skill to beat me.”
Eubank said: “DeGale
is going to get the
schooling of his career.”
JOSH BEAUMONT will

PADRAIG HARRINGTON will have his arm
in a splint when he is unveiled as Europe’s
2020 Ryder Cup captain on Tuesday.
Harrington revealed he broke a bone in his
wrist walking down the stairs at home last month.
“A simple slip and sprained wrist has turned
out to be a broken bone,” said the Irishman,
who has delayed his start to the season.

with our experts, they suggested this
may be the best course of action,”
said Henderson.
“It is not a 100 per cent ‘cure’
– but eight times out of 10 it is
respiratory, so it makes perfect
sense to go ahead with the
procedure.”
“It is exactly the same
procedure we did in 2016,
but the cauterisation is not
guaranteed to last forever.
Therefore we can do it
again.
“He’ll miss less than two
weeks’ work, which
shouldn’t hold him back
too much because he’s
already race fit. But it
would almost certainly
rule him out of
running in anything

MIGHT BITE underwent a breathing
procedure to cauterise his palate
yesterday and may not run again
until the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Last season’s King George

has had a disappointing
campaign so far, finishing a
lacklustre fifth in the Betfair

Trainer Nicky Henderson
has carried out numerous

NEWCASTLE
fans’
groups have united to
send an open letter
pleading with owner
Mike Ashley to back
manager Rafa Benitez
in this month’s transfer
window.
With hopes of an imminent
takeover fading, Ashley is
unlikely to have his wish of
selling up sooner rather than
later granted.
That has raised fears he will
keep the chequebook closed
despite Newcastle being the
Premier League’s lowest net
spenders over the past three
seasons.
Benitez is desperate for
reinforcements,
saying
it
would take “a miracle” for
the Magpies to survive. His
side are just two points
above the relegation
zone.
And fans are alarmed
at a potential double
whammy of relegation
and Benitez walking
away when his
contract runs
out at the end
of the season.

In the letter,
they claim failing

The fans’ groups, which
include the Mag fanzine, The

there will be no anti-Ashley

They close the letter telling

Austin faces charge
CHARLIE AUSTIN has
been charged by the FA
with making an “abusive
and/or insulting” gesture
after being substituted
during Southampton’s
defeat by Manchester City.
Austin, right, who has
scored only twice in the
league this season, had
been booked 10 minutes
earlier.
He appeared to react
after being jeered by some
City supporters as he left
the pitch, having been
replaced by Shane Long in
the 68th minute of the 3-1
loss at St Mary’s on
Sunday. The striker, 29,
has until 6pm on
Monday to respond
to the charge.

“Everything he seems

substitutions, are

off the top four and
midfielder Ander
Herrera refuses to fuel

“To be honest, I don’t

who admits he had
virtually given up hope

“When I saw we
were maybe 12 points
behind, I decided ‘don’t

what we did.
“At least, that’s what
I did and things are
going well so I don’t
want to change. If we
continue this run, we
will be closer to the
top four but it’s not
something that kills

Victory at St James’
Park came with only
United’s third clean
sheet this season.
And Herrera said no

than David De Gea –
one of the world’s top
goalkeepers but who,
before Wednesday
night, had the joint
worst shut-out record
in the Premier League
since August.
United have let in
32 goals in 21 league
games and Herrera
said: “We wanted to
make David happy
because he was a
little bit disappointed
over the last few
games.
“I had to cope with
him after the games,

League One.
Gomes, above, has
led a team against

Porto assistant, with
the head coach
banished to the stands
by UEFA.
Gomes said: “It is a

at Old Trafford against

They are a strong team,
and now playing with a
different dynamic. It

with how they are
playing now.
“Sometimes it is a

“When I was at Porto

clanger, when he fumbled a
Marcus Rashford free-kick to
let substitute Romelu Lukaku
score the opening goal.
Dubravka said: “It was my
fault. I tried to save it but the
ball moved a little and I was
not able to capture the
rebound. I have to say sorry to
my team-mates and the fans.
“It was a good result at
half-time and we thought we
could fight for the victory.
“We were very compact, had
played well and created a few

“Unfortunately, that first
goal affected the whole game
and I apologise for that.”

sprinkling of snow when they
draw up at the Priestfield
Stadium for the Saturday
3pm kick-off tomorrow.
When Gillingham manager
Steve Lovell promises this
is going to be a good
old-fashioned FA Cup thirdround tie you have to believe
him – even if he only made it
to league management after
giving up a lucrative career as
a second-hand car salesman.
In fairness, the snow piled
up against the kerbs around
the stadium is artificial – the
remnants of a busy festive
period of Christmas parties.
The rest, however, is as
genuine as Lovell himself, a
former Wales international
who knows better than most
that real snowflakes can
last longer than footballing
fortunes.
Lovell, you see, was part of
the ‘Team of the Eighties’ – a
ludicrous label handed to a
young Crystal Palace side
under Terry Venables when
they topped the table in
October 1979.
Now 58, Lovell recalled:
“Clive Allen, Vince Hilaire,
Peter
Nicholas,
Kenny
Sansom – they were good
times. But after Venables left,
it all went. I had five managers
in the next two years!”
His own playing career took
him to 19 clubs in all, though
nowhere was he more at home
than at Gillingham.
Indeed, he was still a player
in 1992 when he just missed
out on the manager’s position.
Glenn Roeder, the successful
applicant, promptly sold him.
After nearly a decade in
non-League football, he was

“They asked me to be their

said. “In return for a slot

to

thinking, ‘What the heck am I
doing here?’
“I didn’t know any different,
just football, even though I
was earning much more
money in the car business.”
Lovell’s break came when
he took up a similar role at
Charlton and was spotted by
academy staff running a
community course.
Eventually,
Gillingham
came knocking again, this
time with a senior coaching
job, and by the end of

“If it lasts a week, if it lasts

my life is to work hard to give
it a go. If I didn’t give 100 per
cent, how can I ask the same
of my players?”
Not that inflated salaries
makes
getting
that
full
commitment any easier even
at this level.
“When I was part of the
‘Team of the Eighties’, I was
not thinking, ‘If they are
calling us that I should
be earning £10,000-a-week,’”
he said.
“I was just happy to have a
contract and be part of it.
When George Graham
called me up to sign a
new three-year contract
at Millwall, I signed it
without even looking
at how much it was
for. And I was the
top scorer. Back
then it was how it
was done.”
Indeed, now is
a good time to
reflect more on
how football used
to be done.
“Football was
and still is a

Lovell, whose side

“Whether they

LIVERPOOL

LIVERPOOL
should
take it as a compliment
that for most neutrals
the first week of January
is far too early for a
contest as good as this
to be over.
And when the dust settles,
even a first reverse of the
season still leaves the Reds in
pole position in the race for a
first title in 29 years.
But a thrilling match at the
Etihad went the way of the
hosts last night as goals from
Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane
breathed life into the battle
for the Premier League and
allowed City to narrow the gap
to four points.
This was a barnstorming
match in which City had cause
to thank their lucky stars as
well as their forwards. John
Stones cleared the ball off
the line in the first half
and Leroy Sane’s winner
rebounded off both posts
before nestling in the net.
Between those moments
Roberto
Firmino
had
equalised for Jurgen Klopp’s
men to leave the Etihad on a
knife edge.
At
its
close,
Aguero’s
seventh consecutive strike
against Liverpool here and
250th career goal, and Sane’s
winner in the 72nd minute
both settled and reignited a
contest at the same time.
Klopp had stood before
kick-off, hands wedged in his
coat pockets on the centre
circle, watching City’s players
go through their paces in the
warm-up.
Two things will have given
him encouragement. Firstly,
the sight of Kevin De Bruyne
warming
up
with
the
substitutes after failing to
recover fully from the knock
which had ruled him out of
the Southampton game.
The second would have been
centre-back Aymeric Laporte
preparing to play at left-back.
Laporte has acted as an
emergency cover before, away
at Hoffenheim in October in
the Champions League in a
match they won, and at Anfield
in the quarter-finals last season
which they did not.
Yet unlike that fateful night
when City had been blown
away inside 30 minutes, the
opening last night felt more
like the early stages of the
return with Pep Guardiola’s
side exploding out of the traps
and forcing Liverpool into
early mistakes.
Fernandinho was central to
it with a few early wreckingball challenges that gave the
visitors no time to settle.
For all of City’s pressure, the
first significant chance fell to
Liverpool and it was so nearly
a comical blunder that gifted
the Reds the lead. Mo Salah
put Sadio Mane through on
the right side of the area.
Taking the pass in his stride,
SAN-SATIONAL:
Leroy Sane strikes
for City’s second
goal, his shot
deflecting off both
posts before

LEVEL HEADER: Liverpool’s Firmino dives to bring it back to 1-1
the Liverpool striker beat
Ederson but hit the post with
the ball rebounding back into
the danger zone.
With Ederson racing back
to smother and Stones racing
off the line, the defender’s
clearance ricocheted off the
goalkeeper and back towards
goal. Despite Salah following
up, Stones just managed to
get back and clear off the line.
The margins were so fine,
replays viewed at half-time by
a delighted home support
showed the ball was 11mm
from being fully over the line
before Stones’s foot averted
danger.
The scare unsettled City
momentarily but they slowly
regained composure and went
in at the break ahead.
Bernardo Silva had been a
constant livewire dropping
deep and Sane’s pace a real
threat down the left, and

both had a hand in Aguero’s
opener.
Sane had scorched past
Trent Alexander-Arnold with
ease five minutes before the
break and, while Liverpool
cleared that one, the ball found
its way back to Silva. On the
left of the area, his pass along
the byline found Aguero five
yards out at the near post. A
first touch took the ball away
from Dejan Lovren and with
his second he lashed it high
past Alisson into the roof of
the net.
City started the second
half
suitably
emboldened
with Sane starting to dominate
the left flank and Fernandinho
and Silva putting in heroic
amounts of work in the
middle.
Klopp stood in his dugout
but his hands were not settled
any more and just before the
hour mark he opted to beef
up his increasingly bypassed
midfield, bringing on Fabinho
for James Milner.
His introduction appeared
to give Liverpool the control
they had lacked and he had a
hand in the equaliser when he
fired a ball out to AlexanderArnold on the right. The fullback crossed deep to the far
post where Andy Robertson’s
centre was headed in by an
unmarked Firmino.
City’s winner, Sane meeting
Raheem Sterling’s pass and
beating Alisson at his far post
with a low curling left-foot
shot, left enough time for some
fraying nerves.
A goalmouth scramble on
82 minutes was eventually
cleared and Ederson denied
Salah with a brilliant save six
minutes from time.
In the end City just about
held on to spark jubilant
scenes around the Etihad.

the line three times as
the match grew towards
a frantic finale after
Roberto Firmino had
cancelled out Aguero’s
opener.
John Stones, who
cleared with the ball
inches from crossing the
line after Sadio Mane
hit the post in the first
half, admitted City
needed luck to reduce
the gap at the top of the
table. He said: “I tried
to take everything, I
spotted the opportunity
and I heard it was tight.
I’m just happy it didn’t
go over the line. Those
things change a game.”
City manager Pep
Guardiola saluted the
heart shown by his
players and admitted
City’s title hopes had
been on the line. He
said: “The gap is still
four points which is
enough points to be
calm but I have to say
congratulations to these
incredible players. They
showed their heart to
everyone in Europe.
“I am proud of them,
but not just today. We
lost two games in four
days but you can’t forget
what they have done for
16 months. We knew it
was a final today, if we
lose it is almost over.
“All credit to these
incredible players. That
is how we have to play
in the Champions
League. We were not
scared, we had no fear
and we had a lot of
pressure.
“They are leaders, it is
four points but we have
reduced the gap. We
knew that if we won we
would be in contention
to fight for the league; if
we lose it is over.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen
Klopp said he retained
complete confidence in
his players to remain at
the top of the table until
the end of the season.
“I have so much faith
in my players you
cannot imagine. In the
end we lost and we have
to take it,” said Klopp.
Firmino could face an
FA charge after
appearing to direct a
two-fingered salute
towards the crowd as he
left the field after being
substituted.

When he was asked
