Phone call and owers for cool Kate yesterday

FRESH outrage over Britains sicknote culture erupted last night after new Whitehall gures showed three-quarters of Incapacity Benet claimants are not entitled to the money.

dropped their claims before completing the assessments making a total of around 887,000. The astonishing gures, released by the Department for Work and Pensions yesterday, suggest that more than 4billion of taxpayers money is wrongly paid out every year to workshy spongers feigning serious disability. Ministers last night seized on the

statistics as evidence of the way that welfare dependency and fraud has become endemic in many parts of Britain. Employment Minister Chris Grayling said: Once again we have clear evidence of the need for change in our welfare system. We now know very clearly that the vast majority of new claimants for sickness benets are in fact able KLIEKFG8><+

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton went to Westminster Abbey last night for the main rehearsal ahead of their wedding tomorrow. Best man Prince Harry and the brides parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and Kates maid of honour, her sister Pippa, and brother James also attended. William and Kate will wed at the 950-year-old Abbey in a ceremony watched by two billion people worldwide. Despite the pressure, a senior royal aide said of the Prince and Kate last night: They are very upbeat. They are very relaxed. The royal party arrived in a convoy of blacked-out cars, heightening the excitement of a growing throng of fans camped in a mini tent city. Inside the Abbey, ofcials walked William and Kate through where they must be at every moment of the hour-long ceremony. The rehearsal involved the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, who is marrying the couple, the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, who will give the address, and the Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev Dr John Hall, who is conducting the service. Kate, 29, walked up the nave arm in arm with her father and went through the vows with William, 28. Earlier in the day, Kate appeared to let slip some of her wedding vows or perhaps

A sheaf of paper visible in the back seat of her car included phrases from an unknown work, leading to speculation the couple might have written their own vows. Many of the words were obscured but one phrase stood out: With so much love within our hearts. Yesterday was a day of rehearsals. Up to a 1,000 military personnel who will form the procession or line the route took part in a pre-dawn rehearsal for the historic display of pomp and pageantry. To the sound of thundering hooves and barked out orders, the Army, Navy and RAF went through a fullscale re-enactment.

Anger after Syrian tyrants envoy gets invitation


THERE was outrage last night as it emerged that the Syrian ambassador has been invited to the Royal Wedding. Labour MPs, already smarting at the guest list snub to former prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, said inviting Dr Sami Khiyami bordered on the grotesque. Syrias president Bashar al-Assad is facing world condemnation after tanks and live ammunition were used against pro-democracy protesters, believed to have killed at least 400. A senior royal source conrmed last night: The Syrian ambassador is attending because we have normal diplomatic relations with the country. That is what the Foreign Ofce has advised us. Invitations have also gone out to other hard-line states including North Korea and Iran. It comes as St Andrews University, where William and Kate studied, has launched a review of a rumoured 100,000-plus in funding for its Centre for Syrian Studies, apparently obtained with the help of Dr Khiyami.

Servants? No need for them
IN 24 hours she may never have to carry a box again. But for now, Kate can do without unkies, thank you. The bride-to-be, dressed casually in jeans, right, was spotted arriving at Clarence House yesterday for last-minute wedding preparations. She was seen unloading a carton from the rear of her blue Audi, inset. Despite her royal status from tomorrow, Kate and William insist they want to continue living as a normal RAF couple without servants in their rented north Wales farmhouse. Kate, however, is bound to need secretarial support in London for a mountain of correspondence from well-wishers.

THIS could be it the most talked about bridal gown of the 21st Century. Amid heightened security at the hotel where the Middleton family will be based for the wedding, porters brought in bags containing carefully concealed garments yesterday. They arrived with Michael Middleton, 61, the brides father, who was not inclined to say whether one of them contained his daughters wedding dress. He and his wife Carole, 56, have booked out all of the 71 rooms at the 345-a-night Goring Hotel, close to Buckingham Palace, for their guests.

Inside the ve-star hotel, the brides lavish suite was lled with white roses, eucharist lilies and freesias delivered in three cars by orist Jenny Tobin, who has provided owers for many lms including Love Actually and Sense And Sensibility. Kate, however, is not expected to check into the hotel until later today. She spent last night at Clarence House after leaving her familys house at Bucklebury, Berks, for the last time as a single woman yesterday morning. Wearing a substitute for her wedding dress, the 29-year-old bride has been practising how to curtsey for a tricky moment in her marriage ceremony when she and Prince William will pay obeisance to the Queen. In one of the more difcult manoeuvres for any royal bride, she will perform a full, formal court curtsey to the monarch, while William bows his head, just after the couple have signed the register. Kate has been practising with the help of Clarence House.

William and Kate are tipped to become Duke and Duchess of Cambridge if the Queen follows tradition by giving them a title on their big day.

INCAPACITY Benet has long been the handout of choice for Britains most persistent welfare spongers. For hundreds of thousands of undeserving claimants, it has provided a weekly income not far off 100 with few questions asked. Yesterdays gures from the Department for Work and Pensions provide a stark picture of the extent to which the system is being ddled. They suggest nine out of 10 people receiving sickness benet are capable of doing some sort of paid work, and three-quarters should probably not be on Incapacity Benet at all. Those estimates are based on tests of just over a million people. If the same proportions apply across all claimants, then around 1.8 million will be found to be t for work or will voluntarily drop their claims. That is a signicant section of the working-age population, and a chilling indictment on the legacy of welfare dependency left by Labour. The tragedy is that many genuinely disabled and seriously ill people are losing out because resources are so stretched by the cheats.

to return to work. Thats why we are turning our attention to existing claimants, who are simply abandoned on benets. Thats why we are reassessing all of those claimants and launching the Work Programme to provide specialist back-towork support. We will, of course, carry on providing unconditional support to those who cannot work, but for those who can, its right and proper that they start back on the road to employment. Ofcials yesterday released the latest quarterly update on the Department for Work and Pensions drive to test every claimant receiving sickness benets. Under the shake-up, those found to be genuinely in need of support are being moved on to the new Employment and Support Allowance. Claimants deemed to be t for work are moved on to Jobseekers Allowance and

Disabled but

;\k\id`eXk`fe
The roots of todays sick-note culture lie in the 1980s when dubious claims were tolerated as a way of massaging the unemployment statistics and assuaging anger in Northern mining communities devastated by pit closures. But that pragmatism was later allowed to run out of control under Labour, spawning an insidious something-for-nothing attitude. Tony Blairs administration failed to use relatively benign economic conditions as an opportunity to reform the welfare system. It was only at the fag end of Labours rule that it attempted to tackle the scandal, substituting Incapacity Benets with Employment and Support Allowance. The coalition has accelerated the programme of testing every one of the 2.4 million people claiming sickness benets. Millions of taxpayers fed up with seeing scroungers fund lives of indolence must hope the Government has the determination to tackle the great British welfare scandal once and for all.

warned that they could be stripped of all benets if they refuse offers of work. Jobseekers Allowance is worth up to 67.50 a week compared with up to 94.25 a week for Incapacity Benet. The gures showed that 1,175,700 claimants have been put forward for medical tests since the overhaul was launched in 2008 and accelerated by the coalition Government last year. Around 458,500 people were found to be t for work, 39 per cent of the total. And 428,800, equivalent to 36 per cent of the total, dropped their claims before the medical tests were completed. Ofcials also found that 188,300 claimants, 16 per cent of the total, were found to have genuine disabilities but could take on some form of work if given state support. They were categorised in the Work Related Activity Group and ordered to join the Governments Pathways to Work

SCROUNGER David Ray, left, raked in 34,000 saying he was too sick to walk but was caught playing golf. Ray, 55, was lmed as he played twice a week while insisting he could barely take a step due to a trapped nerve and osteoporosis. After an accident in 1995 he claimed he needed assistance to get out of bed and for dressing, bathing and cutting up his food. Two years later he joined a golf club and investigators recorded him collecting his clubs from his car, walking briskly to the fairway, swinging his club and wheeling his trolley on the course. Ray, of Coleshill, Birmingham, said some days his disability was better than others but admitted being economical with the truth. He pleaded guilty to cheating by claiming 33,850, was sentenced to four months in jail, suspended for 12 months, with a curfew and was electronically tagged.

Only six per cent of the total, 73,500 people, were found to be too ill or disabled to work. These included the terminally ill, cancer sufferers undergoing chemotherapy, and people with severe physical or mental disabilities. They were categorised in the Support Group and were entitled to claim the maximum Employment and Support Allowance. John OConnell, research director of the TaxPayers Alliance, said: The benets system needs a drastic overhaul to ease the pressure on taxpayers. It should pay to

go back to work, not stay on benets. The total bill for Incapacity Benet and other sickness-related handouts is thought to cost taxpayers 12.5billion a year. Last week, David Cameron acknowledged the growing anger about the number of claimants receiving Incapacity Benet because of obesity or addiction to alcohol or drugs. Ofcial gures showed that over 81,000 people are on incapacity benets because they are too fat to work or have drug or drink problems. More than 20,000 with one of those three problems are among some 900,000 who have been on the sick for more than 10 years.

THE father of three young children stabbed to death by their mother during a bitter custody battle spoke yesterday of his anguish at failing to protect them. Pasquale Riggi said he was pained to the core after estranged wife Theresa was jailed for a minimum of 16 years for killing eight-year-old twins Austin and Luke and their sister Cecilia, ve. The oil company executive said the horric manner in which his children died would leave an indelible mark on his life. Theresa Riggi, 47, was initially charged with murder but last month she pleaded guilty to culpable homicide on the grounds of diminished responsibility. The bloodstained bodies of the children were discovered last August at the familys rented at in an Edinburgh townhouse following a suspected gas explosion. They had been stabbed eight times each and were found lying side by side in a bedroom. US-born Mrs Riggi, a violinist who taught music, was badly injured after falling head rst from a secondoor balcony in a suicide bid. The court heard she had been possessive about the children since they were born and insisted they wore locators in public places. The situation worsened when she and Pasquale Riggi, 46, began divorce proceedings and the couple began a custody battle.

Grieving fathers anguish at failing to stop his vengeful wife killing their three children

;Xe^\i
Mrs Riggi ed with the children to the address in Edinburgh and 24 hours before their deaths a judge warned they could be in danger when she failed to appear at a divorce hearing. The judge told social workers to track the children down and take them into care if necessary. An earlier court hearing was told how she spoke to her husband by phone on the evening of August 2, at around 11.30pm. She accused him of being in collusion with their solicitors and asked if he would take the children away. On being told that she left him no choice, Mrs Riggi replied: Say goodbye then. And she hung up. Psychiatrists found she was paranoid and suffering from a narcissistic personality disorder.

1.8 million in sprint for Olympic tickets

BRITISH families were last night hailed the winners in the race to land Olympic tickets. Organisers said they were thrilled after receiving more than 20 million applications for seats at the London Games more than three times the number available. More than 1.8 million people applied to snap up 6.6 million public tickets before this weeks deadline. Over half the 650 sessions in 26 sports were oversubscribed. The winners will be chosen randomly by an automated ballot. Last night organisers said that fears Britons could miss out due to European legislation in allowing all EU citizens to compete equally for tickets were unfounded, with 95 per cent of applications from the UK. Organisers said many applications were for multiples of tickets which showed that families are hoping to

Certain events have seen massive demand the opening ceremony is more than 10 times oversubscribed. What is most encouraging is that

email conrmation of which events they will receive tickets for by June 24. Applicants who missed out on events will be given further opportunities to apply for remaining tickets in June and July as part of this process. More tickets to events which have not been sold out will be

made available online and by phone from winter 2011. These tickets will be sold on a rst-come-rst-served basis. Organisers have warned applicants they could lose out and be withdrawn from process if they do not have sufcient funds available to pay for tickets.

the majority of applications are for multiple tickets and for several sports, which shows that friends and family are planning to go together. Last night organisers said some failed to apply after a last-minute surge swamped the Games ofcial website. The ticket sales system, launched on March 15, was designed to operate as a marathon not a

sprint. Organisers extended the 11.59pm Tuesday deadline to 1am on Wednesday to cope with demand. But angry applicants sent a urry of Twitter messages complaining they could not apply. London 2012 ambassador and three-time Olympic javelin medallist Steve Backley said in a message: Ive

given up! Looks like Ill have to make a comeback just to get in. Yesterday ofcials revealed the opening and closing ceremonies were among the rst to be sold out. Track cycling, rhythmic gymnastics, triathlon, the equestrian cross country and modern pentathlon sold out and most swimming and tennis events will also be balloted.

BARACK Obama displayed his original birth certicate yesterday to silence damaging speculation that he was not born in America. His hand was forced by the billionaire and potential presidential candidate Donald Trump. He revived gossip about Obamas citizenship which, had it been true, would have made him ineligible for the White House. Obama has already had to produce a certicate of live birth the standard ofcial document when he was rst challenged during the election campaign in 2008. But hardcore Republicans always claimed it was fake and the ames were fanned by Trump. So Obama, 49, nally instructed his lawyers to obtain the original, long-form birth certicate from a health department vault in Hawaii.

Sir Fred had super-injunction

Sir Freds gag order secret out


A GAGGING order granted to shamed former Royal Bank of Scotland chief Sir Fred Goodwin was handed to MPs yesterday. Copies of the superinjunction were put before the Treasury committee by Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming. They will now decide if it is in the public interest to publish details of the private matters Sir Fred has been able to conceal. They want to know if these matters had any bearing on the RBS collapse, which forced taxpayers to bail it out to the tune of 45billion. Dozens of celebrities have won super-injunctions, including BBC presenter Andrew Marr, who tried to suppress revelations of an extra-marital affair.

Yesterday aides posted it on the internet and sent copies to the media. A clearly irritated Obama added: We do not have time for this kind of silliness, weve got better stuff to do. He said he was puzzled by how the issue had been kept going for more than two years. Doubters had formed a groundswell of opinion known as the Birther movement. Some claimed the original certicate could show that Obama was not born in the US and that he was a Muslim. The birth certicate revealed yesterday for the rst time stated clearly that Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4 1961 at a maternity hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii, at 7.24pm, to his white mother from Kansas and his namesake black father from Kenya. There was no mention of religion, but Obama has repeatedly insisted

he is Christian. Asked for his response yesterday property tycoon Mr Trump said: I would like to see it, I hope its true, I hope it checks out beautifully. He added that he could not announce his ofcial presidential candidacy until his reality TV show Celebrity Apprentice reaches its nale on May 22. Obama is still ahead in the polls, however, with 64 per cent of Americans saying they denitely would not vote for Trump in 2012.

ANN Widdecombe has revealed her regret at never having children and said losing the love of her life was a bit like losing a general election. In an unusually candid interview with Piers Morgan for his Life Stories series, the former MP recalled her pain at splitting with her university Mr Right, merchant banker Colin Maltby. But the Daily Express columnist said she was able to move on and was soon chuckling as she recalled her time on last years Strictly Come Dancing.

Europes threat to stem cell research

THE European courts are threatening to destroy vital stem cell research and with it the hope of a cure for a range of diseases. At risk is the protection of breakthrough discoveries using patents, an industry where Britain is a leader. Experts, including the man who created the rst animal clone, Dolly the Sheep, Professor Ian Wilmut said the shocking proposal would wreck British stem cell science. A test case is before the European Court of Justice that could make it unlawful to patent any medical development that has been made based on embryonic stem cell research. Professor Austin Smith, director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Stem Cell Research in Cambridge said the move was astonishing and shocking.

63-year-old former Shadow Home Secretary was asked: Do you miss the fact that you havent had kids? She replied: If you phrase that question, Would you rather have had children than not? Then my answer to you would be, Well yes, Id rather. Morgan then talked about her rst boyfriend, Colin Maltby, who she met at Oxford and dated for just over three years. Was he the love of your life? he asked. He was at Oxford. Yes, Miss Widdecombe replied.

D`jkXb\
Asked how serious the relationship had been, she said: Very. I think for a while we both thought it [marriage] might happen. But it didnt and it was right that it didnt. It would have been a mistake but one doesnt necessarily see that at the time. I dont regret that I didnt marry Colin. I mean, Colin went on to marry and had great happiness and hes had a hugely successful career and a nice family and all the rest of it. Im not necessarily so certain that his life would have been so happy if hed married me. So I think it is a good thing that we didnt marry and I dont regret it.

But there was never a point when I said, Im not going to get married. It just didnt happen. Now the fact that I dont much regret that it didnt happen means that was probably the right thing as well. I couldnt have had the life that Ive had if Id had a family and responsibilities. Morgan asked Miss Widdecombe if she had felt sad when her relationship ended. She said: Yes, I felt very sad when it ended but in a way it was a bit like losing a general election because it feels absolutely terrible at the time and then you actually start to enjoy the new life. Asked why she didnt run for leader of the Conservative party, she said: A lot of things stopped the ambitions being realised and I think, actually the most prevalent sentiment in Westminster was just that I was a bit odd. I mean I really think thats what colleagues thought, so they werent going to take the risk. And it didnt matter how good a speaker I was or how good a debater I was or anything else, as far as they were concerned, Anns a bit odd. I just happen to have views and stand by them. Now if that makes me bonkers, then British politics could do with a lot more bonkers people. Piers Morgans Life Stories, 9pm Saturday April 30, ITV1.

He added: If the European Court of Justice was to follow this opinion then the reality is that all patents in Europe that involve human embryonic stem cells will be eliminated. Other patents will apply in the United States, China and Japan, so this will put Europe at a huge disadvantage. It will effectively wipe out the European biotech industry in this area. Stem cells are the bodys master cells that can be turned into any tissue, bone or organ in the human body. It is hoped that they could one day allow doctors to grow spare parts. Scientists want to patent new treatments based on stem cells. This means private rms funding research will have the sole right to sell the medicines created. But EU legal chiefs say this is unethical. Professor Pete Coffey, a stem cell researcher, said: Theres an ethical need to treat disease which appears to have been lost in this whole debate.

Fury at PMs Calm down dear quip


DAVID Cameron was plunged into a sexism row last night after telling a female Labour frontbencher to calm down, dear. The PMs jibe at Shadow Chief Treasury Secretary Angela Eagle came during a rowdy spat in the Commons. Downing Street insisted it was a humorous remark, mimicking Michael Winners catchphrase in the TV car insurance commercials. But Ms Eagle said: I dont think any modern man would have expressed himself in that way. Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman called the remark contemptuous and patronising. She said: Women in Britain in the 21st century do not expect to be

told to calm down dear by their Prime Minister. Film director Mr Winner, a Tory supporter, said last night: Which planet is Miss Harman on? Does she not know this phrase has become a part of the nations language?

I`[`Zlcflj
To make an issue out of a bit of fun just makes her look ridiculous. The row ared after Mr Cameron made a reference to former Labour MP Howard Stoate a GP in an exchange over NHS reforms. Ms Eagle, disputing Mr Camerons claim that Dr

Stoate had lost his seat to the Tories, shouted: He stood down! He stood down! Mr Cameron retorted: Calm down, dear, calm down. Calm down and listen to the doctor. Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls wildly gesticulated and Labour leader Ed Miliband demanded an apology. Mr Cameron said: I said calm down, calm down dear. Ill say it to you if you like! Im not going to apologise. You do need to calm down. Mr Miliband appeared to be giggling as he was ticked off. But Labour rounded on Mr Cameron later, with a source calling the remark deeply un-prime ministerial.

Heart attack morning alert


HAVING a heart attack in the morning is more dangerous than having one later in the day, a study suggests. Damage to the heart is around 20 per cent worse if an attack strikes between 6am and midday. Spanish experts believe changes in blood pressure, pulse and platelets in the blood that occur as we wake may reduce our ability to ght the effects of a heart attack. Judy OSullivan, of the British Heart Foundation, said: We need further research before we can draw rm conclusions.

Ramsay faces own nightmare


GORDON Ramsay faced a kitchen nightmare of his own after it emerged yesterday that he has fallen foul of health inspectors at his Claridges restaurant. Environmental health inspectors found four breaches of food safety during a spot-check, including a vacuum-packing machine ingrained with grease, dirty fridges and a trace of Clinglm in a lamb meal. The breaches, in March 2009, came two years after the London restaurant called in experts to tackle mice. A spokesman for Gordon Ramsay Holdings said the Claridges restaurant restaurant got four stars out of ve for cleanliness in the inspection. The minor points were immediately addressed and there had been many more inspections since. The Michelinstarred chefs Kitchen Nightmares series has been broadcast in Britain and the US. ***

Drought fears as river levels fall

<em`ifed\ek<[`kfi
FEARS of a summer drought grew yesterday after it was revealed that river levels are low across the country. Poor rainfall in March and April has left waterways from the Don in South Yorkshire to the Tamar in Devon and Cornwall far lower than usual, the Environment Agency said. It added that river levels are particularly low in parts of the Midlands, South-west and East. To make matters worse there is little chance of any prolonged rainfall coming in the next few weeks, the Met Ofce said. The source of the Thames, three miles south of Cirencester, was yesterday said to be as dry as a bone while the earth on the banks of the Cam at Grantchester Meadows is hard and cracked.

In Oxford the re service urged students not to make the traditional May Day leap from Magdalen Bridge this Sunday because the water there is only 2ft deep 3ft shallower than normal at this time of year. The water shortage is raising concerns about water supplies, particularly if it lasts into the summer. Jonathan Powell, senior forecaster at Positive Weather Solutions, said: There is a very stark and real danger of a drought this summer. However, the Environment Agency said: The public water supply is unlikely to be affected. At this stage were more concerned about the effect on the environment.

ROWTH in the economy of 0.5 per cent in the rst quarter of 2011 is hardly sufcient to get champagne corks popping. But it does mean that predictions of a double-dip recession have proven to be incorrect. Conrmation that the British economy is back on a path of steady growth after a weather-affected contraction at the end of 2010 also vindicates the coalitions policy of aggressively reducing the public sector decit through spending cuts. The rebalancing of the economy promised by Chancellor George Osborne is already starting to take place, with nearly 400,000 more people employed in the private sector than was the case a year ago. Another benet of the bold decit reduction programme is that the borrowing costs of the Government have stayed low because international investors believe it will put the public nances back into good order quickly. Britain is in the fortunate position of only having to pay German rates of interest upon Greek levels of borrowing. So long as the coalition stays the course then by the time of the next election the decit will have disappeared, full employment will have returned and the Eds, Miliband and Balls, will be toast.

F
FFICIAL British policy towards militant Islam has long been a deranged mixture of treachery and masochism. Dressing up its cowardice as tolerance and its appeasement as liberalism, the political establishment has failed to tackle the Muslim extremists in our midst. As a result, jihadism has ourished in our society, its growth further fuelled by the wilful collapse of our borders, the destructive ideology of multi-culturalism, the sprawling welfare system and the fashionable doctrine of human rights which protects the zealots rather than the public. The consequences have been laid bare this week through the leak of classied US military papers that detail the backgrounds of Muslim detainees in the American prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. The topsecret documents, made available to the press by the campaigning website Wikileaks, demonstrate how Britain has been turned into a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists. According to the American military at least 35 Al Qaeda ghters in Afghanistan hailed from Britain, while the Finsbury Park mosque in north London is described as a haven for extremists. The Wikileaks papers also highlight the role played by two notorious London-based preachers, Abu Qatada and Abu Hamza, in fomenting hate-lled radicalism. asylum here. Qatada was at one stage receiving over 400 a week in handouts and it has been estimated that British taxpayers have spent 2.75million on Hamza, including incapacity and housing benets worth 3,700 a month. That extravagance is a scandalous affront to the bravery of our military forces. We ask heroic young men and women to risk their lives ghting Muslim extremists in Afghanistan yet we pay the same type of extremists to live here at our expense. The contradiction is grotesque. If the Government had the guts to crack down on welfare then these Muslim radicals would have to go out to work and would therefore have less time to plot our overthrow. The political elite likes to pretend the problem of Islamic extremism is only a minor issue, that the vast majority of Muslims are moderate. But this is self-delusion. Given that the Muslim population in Britain is now three million, even if only 10 per cent of them are fundamentalists, that still represents around 300,000 people a frightening number.

Efkjf`eZXgXZ`kXk\[efn
T IS unforgivable that Labour allowed millions of people to live on incapacity benet for year after year during the long global boom that accompanied their spell in ofce. Instead of getting Britons out of welfare dependency and back into work, the governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown imported millions of immigrants to ll job vacancies. So it is now falling to the coalition to end the scandal of permanent dependency among able-bodied adults by reforming the welfare state in a much tougher economic climate. The results of a new rigorous testing regime for incapacity benets recipients suggest that 75 per cent are t for work, with nearly 900,000 already having ended their claims. Hard-pressed taxpayers simply cannot afford to support such freeloaders any longer. While Labour talked a good game on welfare reform, the country at last has a government that is delivering it.

AVID CAMERON is in hot water for telling a female opposition frontbencher to calm down, dear after she heckled him. Its a good job the Prime Minister is not a Bristolian or he might have invited Angela Eagle to calm down, my lover in which case po-faced Labour MPs would no doubt have become even more irate for even less reason.

   HESE reports vividly show how our national integrity and security have been grievously compromised by the craven failure of our political elite to take on Islamic extremism. But in another sense there is nothing remotely new about the Wikileak ndings. We have known for decades about the unique threat presented by Muslim fanatics living here, particularly after the July bombings of 2005. What is so troubling, however, is the climate of ofcial denial from the authorities. Those, like this newspaper, who warned about the dangers have been persistently smeared as bigots, scaremongers and Islamophobes. In one case, when Channel 4 made a programme about Muslim hate preachers working in Birmingham, the West Midlands police urged that the TV producers

;X`cp<ogi\jjZfclde`jk
should be prosecuted for inaming racial tensions. Our right-on civic institutions want us to swallow all their fashionable propaganda about the unalloyed joys of cultural diversity. But we cannot ignore the terrifying reality. Government connivance with extremism, aided by uncontrolled immigration, has drastically undermined our civilisation and accelerated the Islamication of parts of our country, reected in the intimidating sight of the burka and the alien wail of the mosque. Not for nothing do the French security forces call Britain the Pakistan of the West, while our capital has rightly been nicknamed Londonistan because

of the huge number of radicals within its boundaries. The ofcial indulgence of the jihadists is disturbing enough but it is even more sickening that we have to pay for the lifestyles of the extremists. Only in the madhouse of multi-cultural Britain could law-abiding taxpayers be required to support those who openly declare that they want to tear society apart. Effectively, through welfare handouts to the Muslim radicals we are being ordered to subsidise our own destruction. Both of the prominent gures mentioned in the Wikileaks documents, Abu Qatada and Abu Hamza, were lavishly rewarded by the benets system after successfully claiming

J`Zb\e`e^kfgXp]fi c`]\jkpc\jf]\oki\d`jkj

   ET even that estimate is too conservative. Recent surveys have revealed that 40 per cent of Muslims in Britain support the barbarity of sharia law, while a third of Muslim students believe that killing in the name of Islam is justied. It is telling that wherever Muslims become dominant pressure grows for acceptance of Islamic customs. In Tower Hamlets in east London, for example, self-appointed moral police now strut around the streets ordering women to wear the veil or stick up posters declaring the place a gay-free zone. Wishful thinking and pusillanimity is no answer to militant Islam. Multi-culturalists are fond of arguing that education is the key to breaking down barriers but this is nonsense. Most Muslim radicals are very well educated one of the Glasgow airport bombers of 2007 was an NHS doctor and the leader of the 2005 gang worked in a Leeds school. It is their totalitarian creed that inspires them. The only effective response is a robust willingness to defend our own British way of life. Collusion with the enemy will only hasten our demise.

For the buffet-style wedding breakfast in the Buckingham Palace state rooms, attended by 650 guests, chef Mark Flanagan has promised an (undisclosed) all-British menu of hot and cold canaps which are expected to showcase meat, game, fruit and vegetables from the Queens estates and will be washed down with champagne. A select 300 guests will also be treated to dinner in the evening but while the wedding menus will only be revealed when all the guests have laid down their knives and forks, the happy couple might be interested to know of the great gastronomic indulgence of some of their royal forebears. I have collected menu cards through the ages and my new book transports you back to some of the grandest banquets ever. When Queen Victorias son Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, married Marie Alexandrovna Romanov of Russia in 1874, Victoria was determined to make the occasion a great success as it was the rst time she had attended a public banquet since the death of Prince Albert in 1861. The lavish feast for 136 guests was held at St Georges Hall, the table laid with silvergilt plate. The Victorians were hearty eaters and the menu is typical of the period with ve heavy courses and a buffet of roast joints for those still hungry after two soups (turtle and vegetable), sh (boiled salmon and fried LAVISH OCCASION: The state banquet at St Georges Hall, Windsor Castle, in honour of Jacques Chirac sole), two meat courses (including chicken breasts with trufes and spiced llets of beef with madeira sauce) eating continued into the and paper lace.

The Yorks wedding breakfast after their Westminster Abbey wedding on July 23, 1986 was similarly unassuming: stuffed eggs (obviously a Windsor favourite) followed by lamb with mint sauce, spinach with mushrooms, buttered broad beans and salad, followed by strawberries and clotted cream. Kate and Williams buffet-style canap wedding breakfast will no doubt be considered the most modern of the lot.

French police raid on Arab migrants could drive them to Britain

FRENCH police yesterday rounded up scores of north African migrants massing round the Eurostar terminal in Paris, sending hundreds more eeing from the city. Fears are growing that the clean-up operation has unintentionally forced the migrants towards Calais, where many may try to stow away on ferries and lorries heading to the UK. Eurostar services to Britain were disrupted yesterday afternoon when illegal immigrants were spotted on the railway lines near Lille station. Earlier this week, up to 1,000 mainly Tunisian migrants were camped in squares around the Gare du Nord. It is thought most were eeing the turmoil of the Arab Spring protests which have swept across north African nations and sparked a bloody civil war in Libya. From the Gare du Nord, those with visas can hop on a Eurostar to London. For those without papers, it is a relatively short journey to Calais. President Nicolas Sarkozy has taken a hard line and pledged to do all he can to get rid of the migrants.

BUDGET BARGAINS

After the huge police swoop on the makeshift camps, in which 60 were arrested, there was little sign of the refugees in Paris. At the Quai de Jemmapes, where Tunisians regularly gathered, council workers were clearing up, heaving mattresses and chairs into skips. Barman Olivier Duchamps, 27, who works opposite the site, said: There have been more of them gathering. The police have moved them on. In nearby Rotonde de la Villette, some north Africans who had evaded the police sat under trees. Adi Hamdi, 22, said: What the police are doing is no good. We are not bad people. We want to work. In Tunisia I was a baker but it is not a good place. My friends, some have been taken by police and some have run away. They know they cannot stay here so they want to get to other countries.

A police spokesman said: Most of them are Tunisians but there are also Egyptians, Libyans and Algerians. All the countries have suffered serious disturbances following popular uprisings, with tens of thousands eeing and heading for EU nations. Since January, up to 25,000 north Africans have landed in Italy, where prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has begged his EU counterparts to share the burden. France has historic links with Tunisia, and most of the migrants have tried to make their way there from Italy, but French immigration ofcials have turned them back at the border.

Five arrested over blaze that shut M1


FIVE teenagers were arrested yesterday in connection with the scrapyard blaze which shut part of the M1 for four days. The youths, some as young as 14, are also being questioned in connection with two other res in the area in the days leading up to the closure. The incident caused trafc chaos costing millions of pounds. A seven-mile stretch of the southbound carriageway of the motorway had to be closed after a re at the Apex Metal Recycling Yard, in Mill Hill, north London, which caused serious damage to an elevated section.

NE day to go and still the carpers carp: shes too thin, she wears high street not haute couture, shes getting above herself and now, in a last-minute gasp of indignation, she hasnt invited Tony Blair or Gordon Brown to the wedding, they cry. Well I never. The sky will fall in. The ofcial line is that neither ex-premier has been invited to the Royal Wedding as they are not Knights of the Garter, unlike Margaret Thatcher and John Major, both of whom are on the guest list, though the former is too ill to attend. Bah humbug, say the doubters. There were ve former prime ministers for Charles and Diana only one of whom, Harold Wilson, was such a knight. But why on earth should Blair or Brown be at the event? Blair, in particular, must have irritated the Royal Family mightily in recent years. If it wasnt him claiming to have saved the monarchy after the death of Diana, it was Cherie and her tales of conceiving Leo at Balmoral because she was too embarrassed to pack her contraception but not too embarrassed to go on about it afterwards. Would you want that pair of bad fairies blighting your big day? There are also dark murmurings about the Windsors displaying political bias. Rubbish. It has always been said that the Queens favourite prime minister was Jim Callaghan. And then there are complaints that Kates black sheep Uncle Gary (once a cocaine user) will be present, as will the Beckhams. Look. Uncle Gary is family and which would you prefer to see at your nuptials David Beckham or Gordon Brown? Of course there has to be some degree of and this is their nal chance to do protocol involved. This isnt just any what they want rather than what old family wedding, its our future they have to. Is it really so awful to head of state.

HOW sad to hear that Harry Potter star Emma Watson, pictured, is leaving Americas Brown University amid rumours that she was bullied. The United States is a meritocracy: whatever your background, work hard and the chances are youll succeed. What this boils down to, however, is the nastiest phrase in the playground: Just who do you think you are? Miss Watson is beautiful, talented and clever enough to get into an Ivy League college. How sad that the land of opportunity has thrown that back in her face.

WHAT a sensitive lot we have become. In the past few days alone it was reported that Simon Ledger, a pub singer, was arrested on suspicion of racism on the grounds that he was singing Kung Fu Fighting when two Chinese people walked by. Sally Bercow, the Speakers wife, observed: Dont go for a takeaway in Blackpool, when told children were being groomed for sex at fast-food outlets there, and has been forced to apologise. School governor David Moyle put up a poster featuring a plastic model of Charles Darwin surrounded by a mob of Creationists. The school head, Shirley Patterson, who is black, decided that this clearly white male gure was her, surrounded by a lynch mob. She called the police and Mr Moyle has resigned. Since when did it become de rigueur to phone the police every time someone irritates you? Why are we such a nation of wimps?

THOSE England cricketers really know how to have a good time away from the nets. Spin bowler Graeme Swann, pictured, revealed what naughty antics he gets up to when his wife Sarah isnt around. The wife went out last night and so I made a crazy golf course in my front room using socks, cups, a vase and two Xbox controllers, the 32-year-old reports. An under par score was scuppered by both my cats hiding behind the sofa and pouncing on my Titleist (golf ball). Im not sure of crazy golf etiquette so I was giving myself a free drop every time they stole the ball and took it behind the curtains. When the cats away, eh Swanny? HAVING spectacularly thrown his toys out of the pram after angrily attacking his Tory coalition colleagues over their tactics during the current AV debate, Energy Secretary Chris Huhne is now set to attempt a more light-hearted approach. Huhnes aides whisper that hes planning to do something pretty wacky with fellow pro-AV campaigner Eddie Izzard. I think it is fair to point out that, for all his comedic talents, Mr Izzard very quickly stops being funny when he tries to give us pompous political lectures. WITH unelected judges ever more eager to restrict the right of the press to divulge the sordid secrets of politicians love lives, Im left envious of the constitutionally protected free press enjoyed in the US. And a new book by famous Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt shows why the public needs to know about the goings-on in the bedrooms of the powerful. In One Nation Under Sex, Flynt describes How the Private Lives of Presidents, First Ladies and Their Lovers Changed the Course of American History. Flynt says, for example, that a gay affair between President James Buchanan and a senator helped precipitate the civil war. And there is plenty of detail on John F Kennedys infamous libido. It makes you wonder what our knowledge of history would look like if theyd had super-injunctions in the Sixties BALDING Shadow Health Secretary John Healey reckons hes identied the perfect Hollywood star to portray him should his career ever require the big-screen treatment. Healey, pictured, less than modestly tells Labour Uncut that Nicolas Cage would be his ideal choice in a big budget biopic because hes prepared to play unlikely characters. I fear the normally down to earth Mr Healey has been spending a little too much time in the sun of late. WHILE Wayne Rooney has just arrived on Twitter, wife Coleen is a long-established celeb on the site with 75,000 fans. But occasionally her tales of life with Wayne and 18-month-old son Kai can be somewhat confusing. On Wednesday she told fans: Morning! Off to take my cheeky monkey for a day out at the farm! Following some confusion, she claried: The cheeky monkey is Kai. Surely Wayne would have enjoyed looking at the animals too, Coleen. IT SEEMS we should not underestimate Boris Johnsons determination to keep tabs on his political foes. Just prior to a recent recording of Radio 4s Any Questions, aides recount Boris eagerly following rotund union leader Bob Crow into the gents. Just making sure the blighter isnt calling the press, he reportedly muttered. <$dX`cd\Xk1_`Zb\p7\ogi\jj%Zf%lb

HOMEOWNERS had a double dose of good news yesterday as gures showed rising house prices and more mortgage lending. Asking prices increased by an average of 50 a day during March an overall rise of 1,500 on Februarys gure and the third monthly increase in a row. At the same time the number of mortgage approvals for purchases rose to an eight-month high with a strong start to the traditional spring bounce. The average property in March was on the market for 218,522, according to internet property portal FindaProperty, which based its gures on a database of more than 400,000 UK homes.

Housing market cheer with rising prices and loans


direction of house prices in the next few months and homeowners will be pleased to see a recovery in March. However, mortgage advances continued to be subdued in March, with total lending of 7.75billion. This is below both Februarys gure and the recent six-month average of 7.9billion. Net lending which strips out redemptions and repayments also dropped to a three-month low of 846million, well down on the 2.62billion of March 2010. The BBA attributed some of the weakness to the fact that households remained focused on paying off debt, leading to people overpaying their mortgages. The number of loans approved for remortgaging was slightly down on the six-month average at 24,764. But they remained up on the levels seen during the rst half of last year as talk of future interest rate rises caused owners to review their mortgages.

I\Zfm\i
Prices rose 0.3 per cent in January, by 0.5 per cent in February and by 0.7 per cent last month, suggesting the market is picking up after the winter lull. Every region in the country saw increases in asking prices. In Scotland the increase was 1.2 per cent, London 1.1 per cent and West Midlands one per cent. Larger properties were the main drivers of the price increases, with ve-bedroom houses on the market for 1.4 per cent more than they were in the previous month, while ats with three or more bedrooms were being marketed for 1.5 per cent more. Samantha Baden, property analyst at FindaProperty.com, said: The housing market has emerged from its winter hibernation and is beginning to recover. All the indicators are pointing

the same way. The number of properties for sale has risen, theyre being sold quicker and vendors are asking for more money. Figures from the British Bankers Association backed up that positive view with rising numbers of buyers returning to the market. A total of 31,660 loans were approved for people buying a new home, ve per cent more than during the previous month and the highest level since July last year, according to the BBA. Eric Stoclet, of Crown Mortgage Management said: Approvals are an early indicator of the

Cameron: We beat double-dip recession


FIGURES showing the economy avoided a double-dip recession by returning to growth were welcomed yesterday by David Cameron. He accused Labour of talking the economy down after the Opposition said it was atlining. He also said his Governments marketreassuring policies had saved Britain from the crises suffered by nations like Portugal and Greece. The PM hailed manufacturing and exports growth and the 390,000 increase in privatesector jobs over the year. Growth of 0.5 per

cent in Gross Domestic Product in the rst three months of this year was revealed by the Ofce for National Statistics. It followed a shock decline by the same amount in the last quarter of 2010 blamed on the heavy snow. Another quarter of contraction would have put us ofcially back in recession. A 4.7 per cent decline in the traditionally volatile construction sector was blamed for wiping 0.3 percentage points off total growth, while manufacturing and serv-

ices both surged. Chancellor George Osborne noted that jobs had also been created since the New Year and Government borrowing was down, but stressed that the world faced some very choppy economic conditions. He said: You see countries dealing with very high budget decits, and weve got one of the highest, but I think that reinforces our determination to stick to the course. EU statistics showed Britain had Europes third highest decit after Greece and Ireland.

A CHEAP anti-depressant drug costing just 2.4p a dose could stave off Alzheimers disease, say scientists. Lithium helps slow the progression of memory loss, raising the possibility it could be used to prevent dementia. It has long been prescribed to treat mood swings and bipolar disorder, and research shows it can halt the advance of motor neurone disease. Lithium compounds occur naturally and, unlike newer medicines, are not under patent which means they are more readily available for use. A study of elderly people found that those who took lithium pills had much better memories after a year than others given a placebo. Dr Orestes Forlenza, of Sao Paulo University in Brazil, said: We found that lithium treatment reduced peoples cognitive decline. The people who received it for a year performed better on the memory and attention tasks than those who had taken the placebo. Although all the participants experienced a decline in their memory and cognitive functioning, this was signicantly smaller in the group treated with lithium which costs only 2.4p per 200 milligram tablet. The treatment was also linked to a signicant decrease in damaging brain uid proteins known as tau, which are one of the hallmarks of Alzheimers. The study involved 41 people over the age of 60 with mild cognitive impairment. Twenty-one of the group took low-doses of lithium every day for 12 months. The results were so encouraging, larger studies are now being

Pill costing just 2p that could beat Alzheimers


planned. Dr Forlenza, whose ndings were published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, said: This study supports the idea that giving lithium to a person who is at risk of Alzheimers disease may have a protective effect, and slow down the progression of memory loss to dementia. Professor Allan Young, a psychiatrist at Imperial College London, said: This trial adds to the increasing evidence that lithium may have benecial effects on the brain.

Sorry, my brain is taking a nap


LOST those car keys again? Well, at last an explanation for our acts of bafing stupidity has been found by scientists. They claim parts of our brain nod off even when we are awake. People who put the TV remote into the fridge or throw keys in the bin may have suffered a brain nap. Dr Chiara Cirelli, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said: Groups of neurons may be falling asleep, with negative consequences on performance. Brain scans of rats showed that while most brain waves were sending a signal showing they were awake, small parts of the brain appeared to have nodded off. It had been thought tiredness affected the whole brain, causing us to fall asleep for a few seconds. But the US research, published in the journal Nature, suggests it may impact on only small areas of the brain. Professor Chris Colwell, of California University, said: I could swear some of my students can sleep with their eyes wide open.

Gfj`k`m\
He called for the funding of further studies, adding: Such trials will not be cheap but, were they to prove positive, the possible benets in health to our everageing population would be beyond any such price. Rebecca Wood, chief executive of Alzheimers Research UK, also called for larger, long-term studies to discover whether lithium could help beat the disease. She said there were 820,000 people in Britain with dementia, yet research was desperately under-funded. We must invest in more research if we are to nd an effective treatment that is so urgently needed, she added.

LINDSAY LOOKS ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

IT seems LINDSAY LOHAN is a glass-half-full kind of girl. The troubled actresss latest comeback could be derailed by a jail term but shes thinking about winning an Oscar. Lindsay, 24, was celebrating last week after landing a role alongside JOHN TRAVOLTA in a new movie about maa boss JOHN GOTTI. But last Friday she was sentenced to 120 days in jail for parole violations. Now out on bail, she faces a potential one-year sentence for the alleged theft of a necklace, which she denies. But the Mean Girls actress reckons the best days of her career are still ahead of her. Asked by US chat show host JAY LENO where she sees herself when shes 30, she replied, Hopefully sitting here after Ive won an Oscar. That would be TROUBLED: Lindsay Lohan ideal.

POSE: Camilla and Nico with Lizzie Catt PRINCE WILLIAM and Kate Middleton have ducked out of the public gaze ahead of their big day on Friday but London tourists can see two substitutes in the form of Camilla Luddington and Nico EversSwindell who play the couple in an American movie about the royal romance. British Camilla, 27, and New Zealandborn Nico, 31, have been causing passers-by to do double-takes as they pose for photographers and fans. But, as they told us on a horse-drawn carriage ride from the Abbey to Buckingham Palace, theyd rather play a different royal couple next time around. Id like to play Harry next and Camilla could play Chelsy, says Nico, who is in town to promote the DVD release of the movie after its premire on Channel 5 over Easter. That would be a fun movie! Camilla plans something less regal, however. I want to do a horror movie. Blood, gore, the lot!

Facebook riddle as model girl, 16, dies under train


9pEXk_XeIXf
A BEAUTIFUL teenage girl who dreamed of being a top model has been found dead after being hit by a train. The body of Gabby Joseph, 16, was found just yards from her home. Police said they are investigating but are not treating her death as suspicious. Last night detectives were scouring Gabbys Facebook account in an attempt to piece together the last hours of a young girl described as beautiful and always smiling. There is local talk of someone having a grudge against the teenager and an alleged mystery over a deleted message, but police have not conrmed either rumour yet. She died on Monday near her home in Briton Ferry, south Wales where she lived with her parents, Kerry and Julie. Julie, a hairdresser, described her daughter as the most beautiful girl in the world, both inside and out. She added: Nothing will take away the pain and devastation this has brought cant work out why this has happened. Theres been some talk about Facebook messages and someone having a grudge. Gabby would hate falling out with anyone because she was a happy person. But we just dont know the truth yet. The blonde teenager had long dreamed of being a top fashion model. On her modelling website she wrote: In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. Yesterday oral tributes were laid out around Briton Ferry railway station. One read: RIP our gorgeous girl Gabby. We love and miss you so much. Another said: Such an amazing girl. Heaven has another angel tonight. Alun Llewelyn, governor of Gabbys former school Ystalyfera High School, said: Gabby was a very popular girl. The whole school is shocked by this news. Gabby was a young person with so much promise. Our thoughts are with her family at this tragic time. British Transport Police yesterday said a le will be prepared for the coroner.

to us as a family. Gabbys aunt Carolyn Gammon said her niece showed no signs of depression before her death. She said: All we know is that she left a message on Facebook which has now been deleted. We would urge any youngsters not to bottle things up and talk to people instead of going on websites. A friend said: This has devastated us all. Gabby had done a lot of shoots but had refused to do any nude work she wanted to be fashion model. Everyone loved her and we

BAR manager Tim Anderson was crowned the youngest ever winner of MasterChef last night. Judge John Torode said the 26-year-old Americans Japanese-inuenced cooking was the best culinary explosion ever seen on the BBC1 show. Tim battled through 11 weeks, eventually beating fellow nalists Tom Whitaker and Sara Danesin. Their last challenges included making lunch in the Australian rainforest, catering for a wedding in 95F (35C) heat, cooking at three of New Yorks nest restaurants and preparing a three-course menu for top chefs. Tim, who has been married to his wife Laura for three years, said: Looking back on all the amazing cooks that left before me, it is really quite humbling to have come out on top. Humbling, but super awesome. Torode said: I think all three were amazing, but Tim was in a different world altogether. Fellow judge Greg Wallace added: Inventive is one thing but inventive and delicious is nothing short of incredible. Tim, who is originally from Wisconsin but now runs a bar in north London, said his big, silly long-term goal is to run his own restaurant empire.

A FAMILY AFFAIR
SHE might not be amused but Queen Victoria would surely permit herself a wry smile of satisfaction to see so many of her descendants gathered in Westminster Abbey tomorrow. Eight of her great-great-grandchildren will be there: the Queen, Prince Philip, King Harald of Norway, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, her sister ex-Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, ex-King Constantine of Greece, his sister Queen Soa of Spain, and ex-King Michael of Romania. Two other great-great-grandsons have sent regrets. King Carl Gustaf of Sweden is sending his daughter Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Daniel, who was once her personal trainer but is now more formally known as the Duke of Vstergtland. And King Juan Carlos of Spain will not be accompanying his wife but his heir Prince Felipe will be there with his glamorous wife Princess Letizia. A generation down, Victorias greatgreat-great-grandson Crown Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia will also be there with his wife Crown Princess Katherine. Alexanders sister Princess Elizabeth will be there too. Once engaged to Richard Burton she is the mother of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg and recently ran unsuccessfully for the presidency of Serbia. Of course not all family trees lead to Queen Victoria. The Dutch royal family will be represented by Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his Argentinian wife Princess Maxima. He is the eldest son of Queen Beatrix, whose great-great-great-great-greatgreat-grandfather was our own King George II. Meanwhile the Belgian royals are descended from Queen Victorias

uncle. The elderly King Albert is sending his son Prince Philippe and his daughter-in-law Princess Mathilde. Their family name is Saxe-CoburgGotha, which would also be Prince Williams surname if George V hadnt adopted the more English-sounding Windsor during the First World War. Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg, attending with his Cuban wife Maria Teresa, is a member of the same family the king of Belgium is his uncle. And King Simeon of Bulgaria is also a Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. It was the surname he used when he served as a post-communist prime minister of his country between 2001 and 2005 although taking that ofce did not mean he gave up his claim to the Bulgarian throne. He will attend the wedding with his Spanish wife Margarita. The latter should not be confused with Crown Princess Margarita of Romania, who will be there with her father King Michael (see above). Had things turned out differently, she might have become the chatelaine of 10 Downing Street: she was the girlfriend of Gordon Brown when they were both students at Edinburgh University. Fortunately there is no chance of an awkward encounter in the Abbey since the former PM is not invited.

THE OUTSIDER
ONLY one royal family in Europe does not have intricate ties with our own. The House of Grimaldi has ruled the tiny principality of Monaco since an adventurous member of the Genoese family, Francesco the Malicious, captured it in 1297. His descendant /lmx

Prince Albert is unique among European royalty in being the son of a Hollywood lm star, Grace Kelly. She married Alberts late father Prince Rainier in 1956. Unmarried, the prince has been the subject of three paternity suits and eventually acknowledged he was the father of two children one in California, the other by a Togolese woman in France. He will attend the wedding with his Zimbabwe-born ance Charlene Wittstock, a backstroke swimmer who represented South Africa at the 2000 Olympics. They will celebrate their own royal wedding in July.

the cabinet are members of the royal family, including Sheikh Ahmad. The 87-year-old King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia will be represented by his half-nephew and ambassador in London, Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf. Accompanied by his wife Princess Fadwa, he is a grandson of the warlike Saudi founder King Abdul-Aziz. Sadly the most colourful monarch in the Arab world, the exotically turbaned Sultan Qaboos of Oman, is not attending in person. Instead he is sending his second cousin and minister of national heritage, Prince Haitham bin Tariq.

THE ASIANS
THE refusal of the King of Cambodia to attend the wedding, saying he has something more important to do, rufed feathers. Fortunately not all crowned heads from his region of the world are quite so busy. The fabulously wealthy Sultan of Brunei will be there when youre worth an estimated 10billion you can pay other people to be busy for you along with his wife and rst cousin Saleha. So will someone called the Yang diPertuan Agong of Malaysia although King will do for the likes of you and me and his wife Nur Zahirah. Meanwhile King Bhumibol of Thailand, the worlds longest-serving head of state, is sending his daughter Princess Sirindhorn. A distinctly modern kind of princess she has a doctorate in educational development, speaks uent English, French and Chinese and teaches history at Thailands premier military academy.

THE ARABS
SIX Arab monarchies will be represented at the wedding, not including the Bahrainis, who are busy repressing a popular uprising, and the Jordanians, who seem not to have been invited even though King Abdullah is half English. The highest-ranking Arab royal to attend is the Emir of Qatar with the second of his three wives, Sheikha Mozah, who stands out in the ultraconservative Gulf as a glamorous female gurehead. The King of Morocco is not coming in person but his redhead wife Princess Lalla Salma will represent him. The Emir of Abu Dhabi who doubles as the President of the United Arab Emirates is sending his younger brother Crown Prince Mohammad, who like the groom is a graduate of Sandhurst. Meanwhile the Emir of Kuwait is sending his interior minister, Sheikh Ahmad al-Hamoud al-Sabah. That may sound about as glamorous as the Queen sending Theresa May to a royal wedding but in Kuwait at least half of

THE AFRICANS
WHILE there are plenty of African dictators with regal pretensions, crowned heads are in short supply in that continent these days. Only two royal parties are attending from south of the Sahara, both from tiny landlocked countries surrounded by South Africa. The one attracting the most controversy is King Mswati III of Swaziland, Africas last absolute monarch. Despite the fact that his country is crippled by poverty and Aids one in four adult Swazis has HIV he has checked into the Dorchester Hotel with a retinue of 50. Pointedly, none of his 13 wives is on the Clarence House guest list to accompany him to the wedding. An altogether more enlightened gure is Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso of Lesotho, brother of King Letsie III and his countrys high commissioner in London. He and Prince Harry co-founded a charity for Aids orphans ve years ago in memory of their mothers. He will attend the wedding with his wife Princess Mabereng.

THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDER


THE lasting memory for anyone who watched the Queens coronation in 1953 was the massive Queen Salote of Tonga, smiling and waving to the crowds from an open carriage in the pouring rain. Her place on Friday will be taken by her Oxford and Sandhurst-educated grandson King George Tupou V. A monocle-wearing playboy, he inherited the absolute monarchy from his father in 2006 but was forced to relinquish many powers when his capital was almost destroyed in pro-reform riots. The island kingdom the last remaining monarchy in the Pacic is now emerging as a genuine democracy.

Asbo lad gives up crime as movie Kes comes to life


A TEENAGE tearaway has been saved from a life of crime after forging a close friendship with a bird of prey in a mirror image of iconic British lm Kes. Ben Brettoner was given an Asbo after his vandalism blighted his home estate. The order involved him being sent to a falconry centre to learn how to care for owls, falcons and kestrels. He was reluctant at rst but over the weeks his enthusiasm has grown and he has formed a special bond with a Harris hawk called Toby. Such is the turnaround in 16-yearold Bens life that staff saw comparisons with the ctional story of belligerent schoolboy Billy Casper whose outlook was transformed when he reared and trained a stray kestrel called Kes. Another echo of the 1969 lm is Edward Sheerian School, now Carlton Community College where Ben is a pupil and parts of Kes were shot. Ben, of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, said: I was messing about in school

and it gradually spilled over to messing about outside school and landed me in trouble. But now Im really enjoying the course. My behaviour has improved because Ive found something Im interested in and Im a lot happier. My favourite bird is denitely Toby and the best part of the course is ying the birds. Id love to become a falconer when I leave school. He added: I saw some lads doing vandalism on my estate last week and I knew that I would have been joining in if I didnt have the responsibility of caring for the birds of prey. Chris Corker, of Berneslai Homes, which owns the estate in Barnsley where Ben was causing trouble, said: I call it the Kes Project because the idea came to me at the school where Kes was lmed. Ben was causing mischief and getting into trouble. Now he has an outlet and has really taken to falconry.

Ben nds the birds have given him a sense of purpose just like Billy, played, inset, by David Bradley in the 1969 British movie Kes

HALF a million Britons will be cracking open the champagne tomorrow at patriotic, ag-waving street parties across the UK. More than 5,500 bunting-lined events are due to mark the Royal Wedding. London leads the way with more than 800 including one in Downing Street. Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, will host the party, with 100 guests picked by local charities. With 85 events approved, Richmond-upon-Thames is the hottest spot for street parties in the capital, according to road closure requests collected by the Local Government Association. Other hotbeds of patriotism include Hertfordshire with 298, Surrey (205) and Kent (182). Across the UK, more people are predicted to host parties in culsde-sac and on driveways which do not require them to apply for council approval to close roads. The total of 5,500 street parties also excludes celebrations in gardens, pubs and parks. Bristol is hosting 54 parties, Brighton will hold 16, and 17 are planned in Southampton. Edinburgh has a party for every 21,000 residents, but not one application has been made from the

POWERED BY

BETRAYED: Sven-Goran Eriksson cheated on Nancy when they moved to London

9p8eeXGlbXj

HE is a lawyer who has apparently not practised her profession for years. She is a so-called femme fatale who kept losing her lover, rather than casting him aside. She has spent long periods living in America yet her grasp of English is so shaky that interviewer Jeremy Paxman was forced to say on live television: I havent the faintest idea what youre talking about. She has no discernible talent apart from looking glamorous, although some would say even that was a matter of opinion, depending what your view is on the wisdom of liberally applied panstick and lip liner. And yet Nancy DellOlio has achieved what not even she imagined might be possible when she rst moved to London in 2001 when her then lover, Sven-Goran Eriksson, was appointed coach of the England football team. She has become a member of British high society. It emerged over Easter weekend that Nancy has a new beau. He is Sir Trevor Nunn, 71, the award-winning theatre and lm director, New Labour luvvie, millionaire, knight of the realm and as connected as they come. The couple were photographed on their way to an upmarket Thai restaurant on Tuesday their rst date since going public about their relationship. They had just returned from a weekend break at Sir Trevors holiday home in Cornwall. Nancys outt of jeans, T-shirt and baseball cap was uncharacteristically low-key for a night out in well-heeled Knightsbridge and was taken as a mark of how comfortable she feels

Nancys exotic glamour made her a publicity magnet. Unfortunately it did not take long for her to become something of a gure of ridicule too. There was the amboyant red catsuit with the plunging neckline which she wore to a reception at No 10 and the make-up with the ever-present lip liner which seemed to get more and more clownish with the passing years. There was the hufness about revealing her age; according to different sources in August she will be anything from 47 to 51. Why this obsession with my age? she raged at one interviewer a few years ago who dared to suggest she was closer to 50 than 40. Please let me live my 40s. Yet Nancy herself cant decide whether she was born in 1963 (as she

She has hinted at boyfriends but wont name them


told interviewer Piers Morgan in 2008) or in 1964 (as she wrote in her autobiography). Then there was the toe-curling I am a geisha for Sven pronouncements, complete with photographs of Nancy prostrate before her man on holiday, kissing his feet. Eriksson had caused untold turmoil in Nancys life from the moment they met at a lunch in Rome in 1998 when he was manager of Lazio. He stole her from her husband and his friend lawyer Giancarlo Mazza and then humiliated her by having an affair with TV presenter and fellow Swede Ulrika Jonsson. Then he cheated on her again, this time with FA secretary Faria Alam who revealed that he liked to load the dishwasher before taking her to bed. But still Nancy clung on, all dignity subsumed by her tenacity and, some would say, her refusal to admit what was happening. Erikssons ill-starred term as England coach ended in ignominy after the 2006 World Cup and the relationship soon followed. He headed up north to manage Manchester City while Nancy was expected to fade into obscurity. That, after all, is what tends to happen to women who ride the coat-tails of their mans success without appearing to do anything to deserve fame in their own right. Where are you now Sally Burton (widow of Richard), Sheryl Gascoigne (ex-wife of Paul) and Angie Best (exwife of George)? But Nancy has well and truly bucked that trend.

Only days earlier Sir Trevors wife, actress Imogen Stubbs, 50, had announced the end of their 21-year marriage, admitting that she had had someone else in her life for quite a while, so the paparazzi have been very much on Sir Trevors trail, but despite their attentions he and Nancy remained relaxed and unperturbed. As your average football supporter might say of the former Wag-in-Chief: the girl done good. She has certainly done very well for a woman who is famous primarily for being betrayed publicly and repeatedly by the man she was devoted to for close on a decade.

She launched her own lingerie line and went on Newsnight, ostensibly to talk about Christmas and consumerism. Paxman was right, however; even after viewing the clip on YouTube numerous times it is impossible to tell what she was on about. She irted with politics and stepped out with political commentator Andrew Neil. He would talk about having a word with Gordon Brown about giving more support to Truce International, the charity she set up with Eriksson which aims to promote peace by bringing people together to play football. She hinted at other romances and would refer to my boyfriend without naming names. Many were surprised that Nancy did not return to Italy, her home country, nor to the United States where she studied law at New York University. Instead she biography, My Beautiful Game, she writes of criss-crossing Europe and beyond by private plane after Erikssons cheating. We had to meet and a private plane was arranged to take me from Rome to London. To escape the paparazzi, I took a private plane to Apulia and sought refuge in a beautiful hotel, spending the next few days by the pool.    HEN photographers disrupted her hideaway, the situation was so tense I ew back to Rome and then tried to lose my pursuers on a boat-hopping trip round the Greek islands. She and Eriksson then went away to Mozambique together to take stock. Clearly, with his 5million-a-year contract, Eriksson was more than able to fund such a lavish lifestyle. How Nancy supports herself now, however, is very much a mystery, as is her inability to speak English well despite the fact that she was born in New York and lived the rst ve years of her life there then returned as a young graduate to study there. Yet her English is beyond comedic. Not that it has stopped her. As far as the worlds of politics and showbusiness are concerned, Nancy is most denitely in with the in-crowd. Now that she is stepping into the cultural establishment on the arm of one of its most respected grandees, Sir Trevor Nunn, high life meets high art. He is more successful in his eld than Eriksson ever was in his and no one is making dishwasher jibes about Sir Trevor. He is even the wronged party in his own marriage break-up so he gets the sympathy vote too. Meanwhile Sven-Goran Eriksson has slipped ever further down the ranking with stints spent managing Mexico, Ivory Coast, Notts County and now, Championship side Leicester City. And as his former love steps out with her new man, Nancy DellOlio the former Head Wag has proved that she is as much a player as any.

For what? She studied law in Bari, in southern Italy, at the Sapienza University of Rome and in New York and then set up her own legal practice specialising in high-end property transactions so she is entitled to call herself a lawyer. But she shows no sign of resuming her legal career or indeed any other. Nancy loves her labels Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and the accoutrements of wealth. In her auto-

Bernard Matthews left nothing in his will to his wife of 57 years or their three adopted children

Bootiful 40m legacy left by turkey tycoon to his love child


9pEXk_XeIXf
TURKEY tycoon Bernard Matthews left almost his entire 40.5million estate to his Dutch love child, it emerged yesterday. The Norfolk poultry king who died last year left 38 per cent of Bernard Matthews Holdings to his son Frederick Elgershuizen making him the largest shareholder. Famed for his bootiful catchphrase, Matthews owned 39 per cent of the company when he died aged 80 last November. His widow Joyce already owns 32 per cent of the company, six per cent is owned by existing and past management and 24 per cent is in a family trust. Elgershuizen, 29, who was born after an extra-marital affair, now owns more of the company than Matthews widow and their three adopted children Kathleen, Jason and Victoria. In the tycoons will, published yesterday, the remaining one per cent of the rm was left to his former personal assistant Carolyn Claussen.

Son Frederick now owns bulk of rm


received a CBE from the Queen for his services to the Duke of Edinburghs Award scheme, separated from his wife in 1975. He began an eight-year relationship with Cornelia Elgershuizen. She gave birth to his only blood heir who lives in Holland and works as an internet entrepreneur. After the couple separated, Matthews kept a close relationship with his son but once described his personal life as complicated. Matthews rose to become the biggest turkey producer in Europe after hatching a dozen turkey eggs in a second-hand incubator 60 years ago. He stayed married to former childhood sweetheart Joyce, who helped build his multi-million pound turkey empire, for 57 years even though they lived apart for 35 of those. Elgershuizen refused to make any comment on the contents of the will earlier this year when he was questioned at his 1million four-storey townhouse near the Dutch parliament in The Hague.

Jn\\k_\Xik
He left 1million to his long-term partner Odile Marteyn, 5,000 to his housekeeper Barbara Hood and an annuity of 1,000 until death to his stepmother Agnes Matthews. Matthews always refused to disclose any details about who would be running his family-owned rm after his death. In a company statement, Noel Bartram, chief executive of Bernard Matthews Holdings, yesterday pledged the company would remain a family-owned business. He said: The company continues to be a family-owned business, managed by its board in the interest of all the shareholders. The board continues to implement its strategy of growing the business by focusing on increasing turkey consumption in the UK. Matthews, who

Foreign dirty dozen putting rivers at risk


A DIRTY dozen of non-native animals and plants threatening Britains rivers and canals were named yesterday. British Waterways said all 12 species were released after being bought as pets or ornamental pond plants and quickly spread because they had no predators in the UK. The body, which is responsible for 2,200 miles of rivers and canals, is now urging gardeners to dispose of any invasive species responsibly. It spends about 1million a year trying to repair damage caused by the invaders. The dirty dozen include Chinese mitten crabs, which burrow into and

undermine river banks, and red-eared terrapins, pictured below, that eat ducklings and can grow as big as dinner plates. They became popular during the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze about 20 years ago. Ecologist Chris John said: In their native countries these particular species are kept in check by nature. The other animals on the list are American signal craysh, mink, zebra mussels and zander sh. The invasive plants are Japanese knotweed, Australian swamp stonecrop, Himalayan balsam, giant hogweed, water fern and oating pennywort.

The former Miss Wales and Big Brother star, 28, said she never had any intention of revealing her six-month ing with the married star. But his super-injunction against being named led to her being identied. Imogen told ITVs This Morning: I didnt want my name to be out there in the public domain like this. Ive been exploited and feel really angry. As foolish as this sounds, I honestly didnt think this would get out into the public domain. I feel like I have been thrown to the lions and told to deal with it. She said she burst into tears when she read the gagging order. The case is one of a series involving public gures privacy.

Eating less and slowing down is key to longer life


THE key to a long life could be down to having a slow metabolism. People who restrict their calorie intake and remain slim are known to live longer than those who eat freely. But researchers have now discovered this could all be down to the speed at which the body burns calories. They think that people who eat less also tend to have a slower metabolism and this may in turn help to protect their organs against damage. Many people believe that eating little but often helps to boost the metabolism and encourages the body to burn fat. Although this may be one way to stay slim, scientists say that it may not be good in the long term. Instead, people who stay slender by simply

9pM`Zkfi`X=c\kZ_\i
?\Xck_<[`kfi
eating less may have a better approach as this makes their metabolism more sluggish. A study to be published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that a higher metabolic rate predicts an earlier death. The team from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases in Phoenix, Arizona, looked at the health of 652 healthy volunteers. They measured the amount of energy they used over 24 hours and their resting metabolic rate. The volunteers were followed up over the following 11 to 15 years to see if any links could be made between

lifespan and metabolism. They found that 27 participants died of natural causes, but the risk of dying was linked to their metabolic rate. Dr Reiner Jumpertz who led the study said: The results may help us understand some of the underlying mechanisms of human ageing. And they may indicate why reductions in metabolic rate, for instance via low calorie diets, appear to be benecial for human health. However, he said that people should not avoid exercise, which also increased metabolic rate, because the overall benets of staying t far outweighed the new-found risks of a raised metabolism. It simply applies to how much energy people need to function on a daily basis.

Children dream of becoming a banker

SHOCKING: If bank details are stolen you could suddenly nd yourself in debt

This could be one of the biggest hacking cases in history. Sony has warned all users of its PlayStation Network (PSN) around 77 million people worldwide who use the network to play online computer games or to access music and lms that their personal details may have been stolen. The company says it has been compromised by an illegal and unauthorised intrusion into its network, meaning its database has been hacked into. company is still working on the problem, saying: We are currently investigating to determine the cause of this outage and are working to restore and maintain the services. Sony is also using the PSNs downtime to strengthen its security systems and network infrastructure so that this doesnt happen again.

N?P;F<J:FDGLK<I ?8:B@E>?8GG<E6
There appears to have been a shift away from hackers doing it for the thrill or the fame and towards doing it for prot. In many cases criminals will commit identity theft then either use the information themselves or sell it to others. It is estimated that every year in the UK alone, such fraud costs more than 2.7billion and affects more than 1.8 million people. Criminals steal personal information then pretend to be you. According to identitytheft.org.uk, once a hacker has your information, they could apply for a credit card in your name, open a bank or building society account in your name, apply for other nancial services in your name and run up debts (eg, use your credit/debit card details to make purchases) or obtain a loan in your name.

:FLC;K?@J8==<:KD<6
Yes, if you are one of the people who use PSN. Sony hasnt yet said how many accounts have been compromised but it admits that personal information such as name, home address, email address, date of birth, PSN passwords and security information have been obtained by this unauthorised person. It is also possible that other information has been stolen, with a Sony spokesperson admitting: While there is no evidence that credit card data was taken at this time, we cannot rule out the possibility. This could include customers credit card numbers (excluding security codes) as well as expiry dates.

:8E@GI<M<EKDP:FDGLK<I =IFD9<@E>?8:B<;6
We might not be responsible for big companies security systems but we can take certain precautions against computer hacking in our everyday lives. The best way of protecting your computer from external hacking or a virus is to purchase anti-virus software which will help you minimise any chance of someone managing to access your computer. Highly recognised software brands include Norton Antivirus and McAfee. These brands offer computer protection and internet security and can be bought via the internet or in a store such as PC World, Currys, Argos and Dixons. They generally involve a yearly subscription and prices range from 25 to 100, depending on whether you opt for a one or two-year subscription or if you want to use more exclusive packages.

N?8K@=@8D8==<:K<;6
The big problem for users is that the data they have on the PlayStation Network may not be unique, says Rupert Goodwins, editor of ZDNet Magazine. Theyve got to think where else they may use the same password and if someone could use that data to get at other accounts like their bank account or Amazon account. Sony strongly recommend several actions: If you use your PlayStation password as your password for other unrelated services or accounts, change them. When the PlayStation Network is fully restored (it is still down), change this password too. Sony is also warning customers to be aware of criminals pretending to be from their bank or other companies and asking for sensitive information, attempting to trick people into handing over even more personal information. We encourage you to be especially aware of email, telephone and postal mail scams that ask for personal and sensitive information, says Sony. To guard against credit card fraud, the company urges people to remain vigilant and keep an eye on their statements.

N?8KJ?FLC;@CFFBFLK=FI N?<EFEK?<N<9FI<D8@C@E>6
As well as using anti-virus security software, stick to trusted sites when looking on the internet. If in doubt, avoid a site and certainly do not download anything suspicious. When it comes to emails, beware of outside sources, companies and junk emails. Luis Villazon, a technology expert for BBC Focus Magazine, says spam (unsolicited emails) can be designed to trick you into revealing sensitive personal information. He suggests everyone should look out for trojans and phishing. Trojans, bits of software that appear

to do something useful but actually play havoc with your computer, are sent with emails as attachments. The text of the email is designed to make you curious so that you will open the attachment but you are actually installing a virus. Once infected your PC will become part of a botnet that sends spam around the world. Your passwords and credit cards can also be stolen. Phishing is more subtle. These often pose as email notications from your bank, PayPal or the Inland Revenue, claiming there is a problem with your account that requires you to re-enter personal details. In reality the site you are directed to is a bogus one and the information you enter is used to defraud you. Banks and similar organisations will rarely contact you out of the blue to conrm your identity. So when you get an email, always contact them by using the phone number or email on their ofcial website. Villazon suggests getting a spam lter and if any spam gets through just delete it. When using social networking sites such as Facebook, try to avoid putting your email address on your prole page which can be seen by potential hackers who could then use the address and may even try to get into your email account.

?FN:8E@<EJLI<FEC@E< J?FGG@E>@JJ8=<6
According to Villazon, more and more criminals are targeting online businesses directly, stealing customers credit card details and using them to buy goods fraudulently. If an online merchant gets hacked, you can expect to see rogue entries turning up on your credit card statement, he says. Your credit card company may automatically detect and notify you of this activity but you should also contact the company as soon as you notice any transactions that you werent expecting. The big online traders such as amazon.co.uk and direct.tesco.com are generally safer than smaller, specialist sites because they can afford more expensive IT infrastructure. If you are buying from a site for the rst time, check that it lists a physical address and phone number, says Villazon. Try calling the number with a query about shipping costs, just to verify the number is genuine.

J?FLC;@M8IPDPG8JJNFI;J6
Yes. It might not be practical to use a different password for every online retailer and website you log on to but it is denitely worth having more than one, says Villazon. Use one password for forums and blogs, another for sites like Facebook and online retailers and a third for Paypal and online banking. This roughly corresponds to low, medium and high security; keeping different passwords for each tier prevents one hacked account from compromising more sensitive information in the higher tiers. A good password shouldnt be any name or word that can be found in a dictionary. Many passwords are cracked by automated programmes that try every word in the dictionary. So use two unrelated words with a number in between them such as ostrich447indecisive. But a secure password is no use if your password reminder question can be guessed. Mothers maiden name, pets name this information can be researched. The website doesnt care what your mothers maiden name actually is, so you can use anything you like.

Alcohol warning for parents


PARENTS who allow children to drink at home under supervision in a bid to demystify alcohol are doing more harm than good, research shows. The youngsters are more likely to drink more than their peers and are more vulnerable to alcohol-related consequences such as ghting or suffering blackouts. The research carried out in Melbourne, Australia, and Seattle, US, was reported in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. A separate Dutch study found that children were inuenced by the amount of alcohol available at home and not the volume consumed by parents. Researcher Barbara McMorris said: Kids need parents to be parents and not drinking buddies. They need black and white messages early on. Such messages will reinforce limits.

Three Polish men charged with murder of elderly pair


9pAf_eKnfd\p
THREE migrant Poles were yesterday charged with the murder of an elderly couple butchered with a hammer and knife in their home. Guiseppe Massaro, 80, and his wife Caterina, 77, were killed in what police called a sustained and ferocious attack after a botched burglary in Wolverhampton. Wojciech Ostolski, 32, and Lieneusz Bartnowski, 21, from Wolverhampton, and Macaej Kus, 30, from Birmingham, have been charged with murder and aggravated burglary. They are due to appear before Wolverhampton magistrates today. The battered bodies of the couple were found in their bedroom by their granddaughter Lindsey

Guiseppe, 80, and Caterina, 77, were subjected to the horric attack after a botched robbery at their home, police said
Booth, 23, on Good Friday. A post-mortem revealed defensive injuries on Mr Massaro, indicating he had put up a struggle. A breakthrough in the case came when televisions stolen from the house were recovered from an address elsewhere in the city. The couples Peugeot 307 was earlier recovered half a mile away from their home. Superintendent Mark Payne, of Wolverhampton police, said: This is a one-off, isolated tragic incident. Tragedies like this are extremely rare but have enormous impact. Granddaughter Miss Booth said: We cant begin to grasp the evil that took place in their house and how frightened they would have been. An entire generation was taken away from us that day. /sou

Polar bear attacks and dramatic helicopter rescues are all part of prize-winning photographer SUE FLOODs job
HEN award-winning wildlife photographer Sue Flood told her school careers ofcer she wanted to make lms with David Attenborough, Mrs Brown smiled indulgently and told her to study domestic science instead. I used to think of her when I saw my television credits on Blue Planet, says Sue. In many ways you cant blame Mrs Brown for her mistake. The woman sitting across from me in a London caf looks as if shed be more at home baking cakes in a cosy cottage than struggling through sub-zero temperatures to photograph the worlds most inaccessible creatures. Sue has nice uffy hair, round, twinkling eyes and a smiley, unlined face that makes her look younger than her 45 years. Yet her mild exterior masks a steely tenacity. When I rst landed the job as researcher on Blue Planet in 1996 it was better than winning the lottery, she says. It was my absolute dream. Now Im always asked two questions: How do you go to the toilet? and Is David Attenborough as nice as he looks?. The answers are, With difculty and Even nicer. Sue has a string of photography awards under her belt and a beautiful coffee table book of photographs called Cold Places. So how does a country girl from north Wales end up spending most of her life at either of the Poles, risking frostbite and exposure to capture stunning images of frozen landscapes and the polar bears, penguins, seals, walruses and whales that live there? Sue had never ventured abroad alone (apart from a school trip to Italy) until she left Durham University in 1986 but her father entranced her with his tales of exotic lands and adventures as a merchant seaman. Today she admits to being a travel addict. Im bipolar, she jokes. You can usually nd me at either the North or South Pole. What attracts her to such harsh climates? I love the amazingly resourceful people who live there, the incredible wildlife and the spectacular scenery. Where else do you nd an area the size of France so dramatically beautiful and so empty? she asks, showing me her aerial photograph of tiny, ant-like people dwarfed by the majesty of the Antarctic Ross Ice Shelf. Her photographs range from impossibly cute, cuddly baby penguins to savage and bloodied polar bears after a kill. Sue loves the breadth and extremes of nature and celebrates the fact she can photograph the same polar bear out on the kill one day and affectionately nuzzling its cub the next and shes prepared to go to daredevil lengths to capture her shots. She tells

My sub-ze a dream c

me of the time she was with her husband, the lm cameraman Doug Allan, when a polar bear ran at them: Dont show it youre scared, said Doug. That was all very well but my heart was about to explode out of my chest and the bear kept coming. We red a warning shot into the air but it must have been deaf because it didnt even inch. It got so close we had to spray pepper in its eyes to make it go away. Another time we were lming mother and calf humpback whales underwater and the 45ft mother ipped me with her tail. My camera began sinking. Faced with a choice of whether to save his wife or the footage, Doug went diving after the camera, Sue laughs. Though they recently separated, Sue is sanguine about being single. I just dont think people who are prepared to spend days in a freezing tent waiting to photograph a penguin necessarily make the best partners, she says, talking about herself as much as him. Doug, whom she met when she was 30, proposed ve years later under less than romantic circumstances. I think he proposed because he thought we were going to die, says Sue. We were camping on the ice seven hours from anywhere. We woke up to see water all /lmx

ANIMAL MAGIC: Intrepid Sue doesnt feel the cold when engrossed in her work

CHILLED OUT: Sue cuddles a couple of cute polar bear cubs

around us. The ice was breaking up as if someone had hurled down a giant jigsaw and it was all in pieces. We must have been there, terried of going under, for ve or six hours and Doug proposed. I remember crying with relief when I heard the rescue helicopter.

OR Sue, none of this is extraordinary. This is her normal life. If anything she nds coming home strange. I live in a big Victorian at in Bristol and it sometimes feels like an aeroplane hangar after months of being cooped up in a tiny cabin with others on an expedition ship or in a tent. Im always amazed by what a wonderful contraption a kettle is when I get home. She is also used to the unrelenting diet on trips. Foods vary from a Canadian version of Pot Noodle to Arctic char, a salmon-like sh. I love salmon but week in week out it does get rather repetitive. Sue dives in a dry suit so she is able to wear thermal underwear and thick socks but admits to having once

jumped into an icy pool at the stern of a Russian icebreaker in a swimsuit. Even I, who should have known better, was shocked by the cold, she remembers. Im sure I burned a few calories doing that. She has avoided frostbite by wearing lots of thin layers, goggles and thin thermal gloves with rubber tips she can peel back, under thicker gloves. I just dont feel the cold when Im intent on a photograph, she insists. She shows me shots of a penguin and its chick standing within inches of her camera. I lay very still in the snow about 50 metres away, knowing they were so curious they wouldnt be able to resist having a look and sure enough they soon toddled over. As we part, I ask if she feels ready to settle down and have a family. What do you think? she says, grinning. Im already itching to be off on my next trip. Maybe Bhutan. Its all so exciting. Im living my dream life. Cold Places (25, New Sue Publishing) is available at Amazon and Waterstones. Sue will discuss the book at the Hay Festival on May 28. See sueood.com for more information.

HAPPINESS

Picture: GETTY

For me its about nding a balance in life and trying to nd time for everything. I never want to look back and wish Id tried something. My parents were very good at making us try different things and I hope Im like that with my daughter too. I know too many people who have jobs they hate. You spend more time at work than you do at home so you may as well do something you love and enjoy.

FAMILY
My family is a tremendous support. Were very close. We have what I call a Maa family. Its very large and extended and Im close to all my cousins and aunts. Its strange to think that were all at that point in our lives where most of us are married compared to the days when we were children running around on the beach chucking sand at one another.

DIDNT just hate dolls and dresses. I didnt just love mud and bows and arrows. I didnt just want to be a boy, I was a boy: one called Edward. It was always part of me, like having slightly red hair and freckles. The proudest moment of my early years came when a teacher on a cricket course lectured me on the dangers of not wearing a box. I told him I didnt have any testicles. He told me not to talk rubbish. There were other triumphs such as sauntering into the gents when there was a queue for the ladies, winning special dispensation at primary school to wear a blazer rather than a cape and casting my handsome little brother as the ugly sister while I was Prince Charming. My mother, of good feminist stock, says she was delighted to have escaped the plague of My Little Ponies that swept the UK in the early Eighties and my father was pleasantly surprised to have a daughter who thought catching and gutting sh was the best fun ever, especially if you landed a garsh, a mini swordsh that had bright green blood. They did, however, often have some rather tricky explaining to do. A few months into primary school one of my rst friends told his mother that he only wanted boys at his fth birthday party. No problem, she said, who do you want to ask? He reeled off a list

The boy who grew up to be a mother

FRIENDS
My friends are understanding. I havent seen anyone properly for a year because its been hard to travel with Amelia. Now shes a bit older that should change so were going to try to make up for that.

I blundered into a weird new world of skipping ropes


of Simons, Stuarts and one Margaret. Um, said his mother, isnt Margaret a little girl? No, he insisted, Margarets a boy. Cue one very confused phone call to our house that evening. Yet the glory days ended aged seven when I went to an all-girls boarding school and blundered into a weird new world of sticker swapping, skipping ropes and dancing to Top Of The Pops. I begged for special dispensation again. Please, please, could I just be allowed to sit quietly by myself in the library? I was much happier reading Willard Price adventure stories than guring out the rules to girl world.

SUCCESS
You could be very successful but not particularly happy at what you do so my idea of success is making a living from something you love. Equally if you choose to be a mum which is the hardest job in the world and bring up your children to be well-adjusted, well-rounded people then youve been extremely successful. Success depends on your expectations.

LOVE
You have to work at relationships especially if youre not getting any sleep. You have to dig deep occasionally but hopefully you dont have to work too hard all the time because thats a sign something isnt right.

LOOKS
It takes an effort. Eating healthily is important. Im quite lucky as my husband and I both enjoy cooking so we rarely eat processed food. We both love a glass of wine and Im not going to give that up easily. I used to go to the gym but now pushing a pram is my main form of exercise. I hate folding it up and putting it in the car so I just walk everywhere.

Claire Goose appears in Exile, a new three-part drama on BBC1 which begins on Sunday at 9pm.

UCKILY for me a new headmaster arrived, an eccentric who often forgot he was no longer head of a boys prep school. He called us by our surnames, despised wetness and obsessed about cricket. The older children used to watch TV with him and his wife on Saturday nights but one week he declared hed had enough of Blind Date and Miss Marple. We were all going to watch his favourite video instead as it would be good for us. What was it? Bothams Ashes. He even dreamed up a brilliant new after-tea activity called Pirates. It involved the entire school chasing each other over all the gym equipment in a way guaranteed to give any Ofsted inspector a seizure. It was dangerous and it always ended in tears. Of course I loved it. I was excited about my secondary school. For one it was

mixed. For another it was close to London which to me meant an innite number of McDonalds meals and the Royal Tournament. Yet the reality came as a massive shock. While Id been playing chess and running the tuck shop, girls and boys in the South-east had become teenagers. Cool teenagers. On my rst night the girls in my room were talking about who theyd got off with that summer. I had no idea what that meant but I knew Id never come even close. They cleansed, toned and moisturised while I had nothing but a toothbrush. I still wore boys pyjamas and read Tolkien-style fantasy novels. I knew I was in trouble. Two years later I had undergone a transformation so dramatic that a girl from home whod known me since our rst day at nursery didnt recognise me when I turned up at her 15th birthday party. Was it puberty that steered me towards oppy hair, teeny-tiny skirts and silly platforms? Partly. Yet I dont like to put it all down to hormones. Id always been a bit competitive and it must have dawned on me that boys and

parties and cider were the most important game in town. I had to work out how to play. Later, much later, I even got married (no long white dress, no ring, no make-up, I didnt change that much) and got pregnant. My friends assumed that if it turned out to be a he, then hed be called Edward. I worried about the psychological implications of naming a boy after his mothers male alter ego but in the end it didnt matter because it is a she called Rowan. As Ive watched her toddling about, kissing her bear and kicking her ball, Ive thought about Edward properly for the rst time in years. My only regret is that I didnt feel I could be myself and still be a girl, that liking adventures and dangerous games somehow made me a boy. The best I can do for my one-year-old is to give her both trucks and tea-sets, dinosaurs and dolls and wait and see what she likes best. And if its fairies and princesses I wont mind one little bit.

Remember the three Rs: respect, responsibility and romance. You must have respect for yourself within the marriage which will make you more aware of your partner. Take responsibility for your share of the relationship. Its a two-way street and you both have to make the time to nurture it. Most importantly, never forget the romance because if you become too comfortable that can easily turn into neglect.

Psychologist Dr PAM SPURR

Royal expert JENNIE BOND

Listen to what the Duke of Edinburgh, Williams grandfather, said when he and the Queen were celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary in 2007. He noted the main lesson they had learned was that tolerance was the one essential ingredient of any happy marriage. It may not be quite so important when things are going well, he said. However it is absolutely vital when the going gets difcult. You can take it from me that the Queen has the quality of tolerance in abundance. If William and Catherine can follow that example and also show kindness to one another, theyll have the foundation for a strong and happy marriage.

A word of advice for Kate


Whats the secret to a happy wedding? Our experts share their thoughts
make sure that you laugh a lot together. Also, dont forget to count your blessings every day and never let the sun set on an argument.

Picture: MARIO TESTINO

with or else you could be swept away on a tide of other peoples expectations and demands. You need to know you can say no and must make it clear to William what you are and are not prepared to do, whether that be royal engagements or the number of charities you take on.

Daily Express astrologer LORI REID


Stay true to your nature, Kate. Being a Capricorn you have the potential to gravitate to the top of any profession. Born on June 21, William is technically a Gemini but as he is on the cusp I view him more as a Cancerian like his mother Princess Diana. Your moon is in Cancer so you and William talk the same language. You are very similar so it is a marriage made in heaven and you shouldnt try to change yourself. William will make the effort to ease you into royal life. You need to keep strong ties with your family. The moon is in Pisces tomorrow showing that you are set for a fairytale wedding. One word of caution I will give you is to take the time to say your vows again with a select few guests or even just the two of you to cement fully your union. Compiled by SOPHIE DONNELLY

Relationship expert and author SUSAN QUILLIAM

Kate Middleton lookalike KATE BEVAN

Having just recently got married myself my advice would be to

Make sure you and William have the same idea of what marriage involves because however long you have been together things will shift. You are not only marrying

William but a family and a role. As your circumstances continue to change, such as becoming a mother or William becoming King, check with him what he expects of you, as yours, his and the countrys expectations will evolve. Keeping the intimacy is also vital to your happiness.

How to fight ageing

BEFORE

AFTER

Dr AAMER KHAN is a qualied GP and one of the UKs leading authorities on cosmetic and non-surgical procedures. His wife LESLEY REYNOLDS KHAN is a skincare and beauty expert. They have worked together for a decade treating thousands of patients in their Harley Street clinic and are here to give you impartial advice about turning back the clock

Im thrilled with my new nose


Socialite TARA PALMER-TOMKINSON was treated by the Khans last week in their London clinic

NEW PROFILE: Taras old surgery wore out and she needed a new look for tomorrow

OR Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, just a glimpse of her reection was enough to undermine her condence. In 2006 the socialite paid 6,000 to have her nose, damaged after years of drug abuse, rebuilt using cartilage from her ear. However the original surgery had worn out leaving her nose looking squashed and bent. Last week she visited our Harley Street Skin Clinic asking for help. Rather than have reconstructive surgery we suggested Tara try non-surgical nose reshaping, a procedure that involves injecting cosmetic ller into misshapen or sunken areas. As she wanted her new nose in time for the royal wedding, this was the perfect solution. After a topical anaesthetic was applied, two injections were used to plump out her nose in a matter of minutes. The results were instant and there was an immediate major improvement in the overall shape. Tara was thrilled with the results. There was no bruising or swelling, no recovery time and her new nose will retain its shape for between six months and a year when she can then review her options to have surgery to correct it permanently or continue with injectables. After her treatment Tara told us: The criticism made me so unhappy. With my old nose Id look in the mirror and feel self-conscious but this has changed the way I feel about myself. Im much happier and more self-condent. Im thrilled with the results. A non-surgical procedure is an alternative to rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and can help those who are unhappy with the shape rather than the size of their nose. It is also a great way to try out a new look before having surgery. Clever use of injectables can help to straighten out a crooked nose or plump out a at one to give a more prominent contour as well as to

balance out the shape. It can also be used to lift the tip so it looks up rather than down. It is a fast, painless procedure and cheaper than surgery. Surgery can cost up to 5,000 while injectables cost between 300 and 650 depending on the amount used. We used the hyaluronic acid ller Teosyal in Taras nose. This gel-like substance is found naturally in the bodys connective tissues and it breaks down gradually over a period of up to a year. However, it is important to remember injectables cannot x all nasal problems so there will always be the need for surgery. About 3,000 people have rhinoplasty each year and the most common reasons are for a nose that is crooked, too large or too wide or has a bump on the bridge.

LSO, as we age the supportive structure of the nose can weaken and change the shape and position so it can appear much longer, with the tip drooping or even becoming thicker and wider in proportion to sunken cheeks. Surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic and can take up to three hours. Usually a splint will be applied for a week and the nose may also be packed with gauze, which is removed after a couple of days. Results are permanent. For cosmetic surgery advice, consult your GP. Visit the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (baaps.org.uk) and the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (bapras.org.uk). For details on cosmetic medicine, minor and non-surgical procedures see the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors (cosmetic doctors.co.uk)

ASK THE KHANS


I AM having a facelift next month and wondered if there was anything I can do ahead of the surgery to prevent bruising and to heal faster?

Q A
/lmx

WorldMags

START taking Omega 3, 6 and 9 supplements immediately to

improve the quality of your skin. Stop drinking caffeine and alcohol for four weeks before the operation as they both decrease blood supply to the area. A course of arnica tablets before undergoing surgery can help prevent or reduce bruising.

Confessions of a wedding planner


SARAH HAYWOOD reveals what really goes on behind the scenes of the UKs most exclusive society marriages
F YOU live a ve-star lifestyle you want a ve-star wedding to match. My clients eat in the nest restaurants, stay in world-class hotels and y on private jets so the bar for a special celebration is signicantly raised. They will often spend in excess of 100,000 on their wedding. People assume they must be incredibly spoilt or dont understand the value of money but thats not the case. In my experience, you dont become wealthy without appreciating it. I have worked in the wedding planning business for more than 20 years and every client wants their event to be more fabulous than the last one they attended. This is where the real challenge lies for me. One father said he wanted his daughter to have the best wedding in the world and whatever amount Id spent on my most expensive event, I was to add another 500,000 to ensure his daughters was superior. This wedding is set for next year and I hope hes not watching tomorrow. I cant close The Mall, get a full Household Cavalry escort, hire the Queens Ascot Landau horse-drawn carriage or the London Chamber Orchestra at short notice. I also doubt I could hire the fanfare team from the Central Band of the RAF to greet his daughter at Westminster Abbey. I can, however, organise 10,000 canaps, rent a palace and emulate Kates wedding dress. I am wholeheartedly committed to every wedding I do, whatever the budget. However, no matter how big the price tag and the level of organisation and there are weddings costing several million pounds on my books the day itself is never uneventful. In the past two decades Ive had to deal with a whole range of incidents from locating a misplaced bride to retrieving diamonds from a muddy pond. On one occasion the bride got so over-excited on her wedding morning that when the registrar spoke to her she projectile vomited everywhere. Luckily the venue co-ordinator realised what was about to happen and managed to shield the brides dress with her jacket. Then there was the time a groom sent for me halfway through the wedding breakfast. He declared he had not prepared a speech and asked me to write one for him. I scribbled down the usual format of bullet points noting who to thank and some words for the toast. Rather than adding to it, the groom read it just as it was written and the delivery left a lot to be desired. The bride was not impressed. Ive had to arrange for helicopters to be refurbished at the last moment, have fresh crab

ICING ON THE CAKE: Wedding planner Sarah (left) says every big day is truly memorable
spacing is even between each placing, just as I would do for my events. People keep asking me what the royal wedding will cost and Id say given the size of the event, not much at all. Buckingham Palace already has the infrastructure so there are no hire, transportation and staff hire costs. Apart from the owers, food and the brides attire, which will have been almost certainly purchased at cost, theres not much else. The best way of explaining it is that you cant buy an experience like the royal wedding. Thats the magic and mystique of it all which makes it utterly priceless. Working with couples and their families so closely means we really get to know them warts and all. There are all kinds of stories I could tell you about how clients behave in the lead-up to their big days, whether they are the fabulously rich (and those who pretend to be), the aristocracy, celebrities, motherless brides-to-be or hard-working City folk who hire me because theyre just too busy to manage the preparations alone. At a time when emotions are highly charged, expectations are almost unmanageable and any cracks in family relationships will deepen. To kiss and tell would be a betrayal and my relationship with my clients is sacred. Whats said to the wedding planner stays with the wedding planner. Interview by JOANNA DELLA-RAGIONE

In the evening the 300 closest will stay for dinner. Thats the bit you or I would consider our proper wedding reception.

Each week CLAIRE BRAYFORD reveals her latest nds on the high street from homeware to fashion

Dresses fit for a queen


TOMORROW we will nally learn which British designer is behind the dress of the century. Until then, I have tried to alleviate the tension by showcasing three styles inspired by the royal bride-to-be. I headed to bridal hotspot Pronovias on Londons Bond Street where the Spanish creative director Manuel Mota has designed three gowns with our future Queen in mind, taking Kates personality as the inspiration for each one. After all, the secret to wedding dressing, whether bride or guest, is to nd a look that atters your gure and character. It should be something you truly love rather than what you deem appropriate. So while Kate will have endless royal protocols to which she must adhere, I hope her dress will allow her true self to shine through. I tried the Thirties-inspired drop-waisted Telma (right), the traditional all-lace Marbella style (far left) and my favourite, the Alcira (left) from the aptly named Dreams collection because all those cascading rufes appealed to my own inner princess.

This week Claire wears...

ODAYS Royal Family is a remarkably healthy and good-looking bunch. Prince Philip is approaching 90, the Queen is celebrating nearly 60 years on the throne and Prince William has the sort of looks that make teenage girls faint. Compare that to the Russian royals with their strain of haemophilia, the Habsburgs with their famously jutting-out jaws and the generations of mad, sickly rulers in Germany and Italy. Indeed, you have to wonder if theres something in the water that has fortied our royals. Historian David Starkey thinks he has the answer and presented it very smartly in KATE AND WILLIAM: ROMANCE AND THE ROYALS (C4). Much has been

made of the impending match of blue-blooded Prince William, the heir to the heir to the British throne, and Kate Middleton, whose antecedents were coal miners. Commentators on both sides of the political fence have seen an ordinary girl marrying a prince as the ultimate victory of the classless, mobile society. There are few people better at trouncing an idea into a cocked hat than Professor Starkey. Give him a dodgy notion and hes like a terrier with a squeaky bone. So to no ones great surprise he demolished the fantasy about Wills and Kate with reference to 800 years of history. Apart from a couple of hundred years when every British monarch was mad, ill or German (sometimes all three), our monarchy has always freshened its gene pool with an injection of commoner blood. The earliest example was Katherine Swynford, whose surname, meaning pig-crossing, was probably every bit as humble as middle-of-the-road Middleton. The daughter of a royal servant, she became nanny to John of Gaunts children, eventually marrying her employer and producing a brood of heirs we now know as the Tudors. By happy coincidence, the sister of Katherine was married to Geoffrey Chaucer, who rewrote the courtly romances of France for an English audience. In France they believed in love but thought it was something quite different to being wed. Crucially Chaucer introduced the idea of people marrying because they loved each other, something that drove many a king into the bosom of a serving wench to the benet of all, especially serving wenches. Starkey gave us a comprehensive list of all the times this has happened since the 14th century, from Elizabeth Woodville, who scuppered Edward IVs attempted rape by saying he could have her if he married her, to Wallis Simpson, for whom Edward VIII gave up his throne. Id like to say he overlooked no details at all but he did neglect to point out that the whole idea of a commoner depends on where youre looking from and always has done. Katherine Swynford was as different from your average swineherd as Tiggy Legge-Bourke, nanny to Princes William and Harry, is to a supermarket checkout girl (no disrespect intended). Some branches of the Royal Family were so posh they looked down on the late Queen Mothers line, the Bowes-Lyons, for having picked up their titles only in the late 17th century. Starkey also failed to mention Vera Duckworth. Youll recall how adamant she was during her time on Coronation Street that she was related to the Queen. If the arguments presented here are to be believed she was probably spot-on.

Enjoy this tribute to the remarkable career of Sir Bobby Charlton (right centre, with Alan Ball and Bobby Moore), a key member of the England team that won the World Cup in 1966 and a Manchester United squad touched by success and tragedy in equal measure. Charlton survived the Munich air disaster in 1958 that killed several of his team-mates, dubbed the Busby Babes. Renowned for his attacking instincts, he is still the record goalscorer for England and Manchester United and received a knighthood in 1994. Contributions from some of footballs biggest names, such as David Beckham, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Geoff Hurst and Bobbys brother Jack Charlton, loom large.

If you thought all the betrothal excitement this week is at Westminster Abbey, think again. Channel 4 viewers will have front row seats to celebrate a big fat royal gypsy wedding. Some people may live in palaces and others in caravans but regardless of wealth or title, everyone wants their own wedding day to be perfect. For this wedding can the dresses get any bigger or the cake any higher? More important, will one Irish traveller bride (left) and groom have the perfect wedding of their dreams?

THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY


Film4, 9pm
This superb Twenties-set Irish drama won director Ken Loach the Palme dOr at the Cannes Film Festival, and centres on the lives of two brothers from County Cork. Ambitious Damien ODonovan is about to leave Ireland for a hospital job in London, but the actions of the British Army force him to reconsider, eventually leading him to join his brother Teddy in the local IRA unit. As the political landscape shifts thanks to the Anglo-Irish treaty though, the siblings discover that their ideas on freedom are vastly different and a deadly split soon sees the brothers ghting for opposing causes. Cillian Murphy and Padraic Delaney star. ANDY DEAN

I COUNT myself fortunate, as a still-working, mostly self-employed 75-year-old, to be able to count on one hand the number of working days Ive lost through sickness in nearly 60 years (9bn bill for public sector staff who take 12 sick days a year, April 27). Most managers in the private sector drag themselves to work however ill they feel because without commitment to their clientele their businesses would be in dire straits. Not so the back-room public sector where it doesnt matter whether or not or to what timescale the work gets done, as the public picks up the bill. Its not just the civil servants who are poor value for money. If MPs pay were performance-related, most would starve. Richard Smith, By email

IN the recent lm Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Michael Douglass character Gordon Gekko talks candidly about greed saying: Now it seems its legal. Unfortunately, he is right. Between fat-cat headteachers, avaricious City workers, TV stars, politicians and footballers, we are living in a supercial and shallow society where greed is the norm. However, it is beyond belief when members of the Audit Commission, which was set up to monitor public spending, lavish nearly 20,000 on themselves with ne dining, luxury goods and services, in just a two-year period (20k spending spree by the quango set up to slash waste, April 26). Im glad that this so-called spending watchdog is being disbanded next year but I wonder how many other civil servants are still wasting vast amounts of taxpayers money on unnecessary items, at a time when many families and pensioners are having to tighten their belts.

THE only way to reduce the number of sick days taken by the public sector and also the private sector is to change the rules on sick pay. Dont pay anything until after four days absence from work, then pay only the statutory sick pay of 81.60 a week. You would see a sharp fall in days being taken off work straight away. When the hourly-paid employees in the company I work for are off sick they receive only statutory sick pay. They cannot afford to be ill and take very few days off work. The staff employees, however, receive full pay when they are off work sick. Consequently, they are absent much more than the hourly-paid workers. Tony Denyer, By email

IT is absolutely disgraceful that migrants can come to this country and immediately receive 250 per week when people who have lived and worked in this country all their lives and have lost their job through no fault of their own are lucky to get 65 per week jobseekers allowance (Migrants ood back to Britain, April 25). They do not even get any allowance to pay for gas, electric, phone and water. We all know why we are being forced to support anyone from the EU who chooses to live here but who has xed the payment at 250? David Cameron has shown that he has no intention of giving the

I AM not a big fan of the Royal Family but I am a supporter of the Royal Wedding. The fact that Prince William is serving in the RAF as an air sea rescue helicopter pilot speaks for itself. He has my respect. Also I cant help thinking of his mum, Princess Diana. What a lovely lady she was. William and Kate are just a young couple in love who want to marry. No one should try to ruin their day (Help protect Wills and Kate, April 27). Its a happy occasion and everyone should join in. I wish them all the happiness in the world. PS: Thanks for my day off.

ANN Widdecombe criticises the Bishop of Oxford for suggesting that in church schools the proportion of pupils from Church of England families should be limited (Bishop who should learn a vital lesson, April 27). This is illogical only if you agree that, in a mixed society, church schools are themselves logical. I think that church schools of any denomination are a mistake in the state system. Their existence undermines the argument against any religious organisation whatsoever founding a school under the umbrella of the general education system and that may further put at risk the aim of creating an integrated society.

PATRICK OFlynn is absolutely right to urge David Cameron to seek an early election and jettison once and for all the woolly and petulant Lib Dems who are holding back the chance to tackle some longoverdue political and social reforms (Call the Lib Dem bluff by holding an early election, April 27). The Tories are effectively wasting their chance to run the country as long as people like Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and Chris Huhne are hanging on to their coat tails. Change can come about only when the Tories have total control over the running of the country. B Wilson, Hatfield, Herts

I WAS pleased to see Cardinal Keith OBrien standing up for Christianity in his Easter message (Cardinal attacks PC brigade, April 25). Its about time our Christian leaders did so, instead of cravenly rolling over every time a new assault is made on our countrys chief religion. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, Dr Rowan Williams made no similar rallying cry, other than to exhort us to have street parties in celebration of the Royal Wedding. The wedding is a one-day event, the future of Christianity, in this increasingly secular society, is under long-term siege and could well become a minority religion. I would respectfully suggest Dr Williams starts acting as a true

THE Conservatives would be wrong to call the Lib Dems bluff by holding an early election. Indeed, nothing could be worse than, having taken the tough decisions to make inroads to clear up Labours last mess, we give Ed Miliband and his team the chance to do the same all over again. The coalition should be positive about what is right for the country rather than individual parties. It should be working to keep Labour out, rebuild an economy ready to compete with the rest of the world and above all be progressive rather than negative. Geoffrey Brooking, Portsmouth

ANY of us would love to enrol on a course, if only we had the time. Whether to spruce up a CV, to create a new career or income stream or simply study more deeply a subject we love, few people regret enrolling on a course that could broaden their skills. Yet it is not just the time. Travelling to and from a college can become expensive and tiring too, especially if you also have a job to t into your week. Enrolling on a distance learning or correspondence course may be the answer. Such courses hold many advantages over conventional classroom-based courses. They can be substantially cheaper than college-based ones and they offer the ultimate in exibility. Also, you can study whenever you want, usually at your own pace, whether over a few weeks, months or years. For the disabled, who may have problems accessing a college, they can be a lifeline. One of the most famous distance learning providers must be the Open University (OU), recognised as a world leader in modern distance learning. The OU offers more courses to more people in more places than any other UK university. With more than 250,000 students, TRAINING AND TUITION

FLEXIBLE: Courses can be completed alongside part-time jobs


7,000 tutors and 1,200 full-time academic staff, it is the biggest university in the UK. Since its launch in 1969 it has helped more than 1.6 million people worldwide achieve their learning goals. Students vary from teenagers to nonagenarians and the OU is the largest provider of higher education for people with disabilities. Around 600 courses on a huge range of subjects are offered, which can count towards more than 250 qualications. With specially designed introductory courses, you can gradually build towards your rst university-level qualication, towards a degree and even beyond. More than 40,000 students are given nancial help too. Chapterhouse Publishing, founded in 1991, offers distance learning courses for people who want to become editors and proofreaders. Many companies need employees who are capable of taking responsibility for quality control, checking their material. Some people who enrol on the courses want to work for publishers as freelance proofreaders and copy-editors, while others are happier to work checking documents, reports and promotional literature for businesses and other organisations.

Some simply take the courses for the sheer pleasure of using words well and feeling secure in their use of English. The proofreading and editorial skills course includes more than 500 pages of printed material, full tutor support during and after the course for up to two years, an insight into how book publishing works and how you could be part of it as a freelance or full-time publishing employee, and how to nd work with non-publishers, a huge growth market for freelancers. Other areas covered include the proofreading symbols and how to use them, essential knowledge from specialists on spotting and marking errors and tried-and-tested methods for nding work with publishers and other organisations. Included are English modules, to make sure you are condent in your English skills including grammar, punctuation and usage. Four major assessments are marked by your tutor. There are practical exercises for selfassessment, with model answers you can work through at your own speed. You could be qualied and earning in just 10 weeks or up to a year if you want to take your time.

HERES nothing like a royal wedding to lift everyones spirits and create a feeling of magic. However, tomorrows big day at Westminster Abbey is also expected to provide a boost to the UK economy, not least through booming sales of memorabilia. Figures from the Centre for Retail Research (CRR) estimate that the total spending on souvenirs and memorabilia, ranging from the smallest items of stationery and pens to more lavish pottery products that have been created to mark the event, may well exceed 220million. Souvenir items such as tea towels, tea caddies, trays, models and ags alone could generate sales of 27million while sales of replica and souvenir jewellery could reach 10million, according to the report. Since the announcement of the wedding at the end of last year lifelong collectors have been poring over special edition mail order catalogues and browsing page after page of MINT online souvenir retailers to CONDITION: A nd that special something. special Royal Some collectors will Wedding coin target everything from souvenir carrier bags and pencils to teapots and plates while others focus on the long-term value of royal memorabilia. While it cannot be guaranteed that a piece will become a high-value collectible, royal wedding collectibles expert Stephen Church believes serious collectors should look for limited edition pieces crafted by established producers known for superior quality. He said: Im often asked by collectors about which pieces will appreciate in value over time. While there is no denitive answer to the question, it is those produced in very limited quantities that are most likely to increase in value. I always tell my customers to make their choices from the heart. First and foremost, select pieces based on their aesthetic value and personal meaning. That said, it is more likely an artisan piece produced in very small numbers will attain collector status before mass-produced items such as the ubiquitous tea towel. Whether you are a loyal royalist who loves featuring the couples faces, with Westminster Abbey in the background, to simpler designs with William and Kates names or initials and just the wedding date. Traditional coin and stamp collectors will probably have bagged their own 5 commemorative coin (left), designed by Mark Richards, a fellow at the Royal Society of British Sculptors and produced by the Royal Mint, as well as a set of the Royal Mails special stamps that feature the couples ofcial engagement photographs. While the humble tea towel has been somewhat ousted in recent years by the advent of the dishwasher, for souvenir hunters tea towels still occupy pride of place among their collections. Earlier this year an ofcial tea towel celebrating the marriage of William and Kate went on sale. Printed in blue and white with entwined initials W and C forming the centrepiece, beneath a crown and ribbon design, souvenir tea towels serve as a fun way of remembering a special day and as a reminder of a bygone way of life. Another popular William and Kate keepsake is the hardback book, Celebrating A Royal Engagement, which chronicles the journey of William and Kate from their rst meeting and student lives at St Andrews in Scotland through to their engagement and provides some insight into who they really are. The replica engagement ring, a copy of the

to commemorate the historic occasions or a serious collector looking for a future return on your investment, there is certainly no shortage of items to choose from. January saw the launch of the ofcial Royal Wedding Collection china, which received the couples ofcial stamp of approval. The collection is modern in style and consists of white ribbons, doves and hearts in silver, grey and gold. There are also two silver doves bearing a gold wedding ring. The centre of each piece features an emblem in silver and gold of the initials of Catherine and William, above which sits the coronet of Prince William of Wales. The whole of the Royal Collection is hand-made at a pottery in Stokeon-Trent using techniques that date back more than two centuries to decorate and embellish the pieces with platinum and 22 carat gold. One commemorative item of memorabilia that could turn out to be a valuable collectible is the Royal Worcesters lions head vase, produced in a limited edition of just 250 by one of Englands oldest ne porcelain makers. The English bone china vase features a specially commissioned portrait of the couple.

ENGAGING READ: This hardback book is proving a popular keepsake for collectors

between tomorrows Royal Wedding and that of 1981 when Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer. A lot has changed in 30 years but not, it seems, our passion for gathering royal memorabilia. Just like todays Royal Wedding collectors, souvenir hunters back then loved to splash out on commemorative Charles and Dianaemblazoned plates, mugs, ags and tea

towels that probably still adorn many of their homes today. The only real difference is the way in which they can buy souvenir items today. In 1981, before the advent of the internet and online shopping, mail order companies, high street retailers, specialist manufacturers and street sellers were the only source of Royal Wedding memorabilia. Today, mementos of William and Kates big day are no more than a click away.

sapphire and diamond ring given to Kate by William, has also attracted the interest of royal memorabilia collectors, perhaps because it also happens to be the same ring Charles gave to Diana when he proposed. If you are looking for something more unusual, even outlandish, to add to your collection of royal souvenirs, theres a commemorative fridge featuring lifesize versions of the William and Kate engagement pictures by photographer Mario Testino spread across its double doors. But if you just want a small keepsake to remind you of the big occasion and you happen to be travelling in and around the capital over the next few days, London Transport has issued a special edition Oyster card, bearing William and Kates engagement picture, in keeping with a tradition set in 1981 when it issued its rst 2 travel card for spectators at the wedding of Charles and Diana. So whether you have a house full of royal memorabilia youve been accumulating for years or whether it is William and Kates big day that has seen you bitten by the collecting bug, youll nd no shortage of souvenirs on sale to remind you of this momentous occasion.

exceptionally low for an extended period. Central bankers are notoriously cryptic when they speak publicly and Bernanke was no exception but at least he shed a little light on the way Fed policymakers think. If he can do it, surely Mervyn King at the Bank of England can do the same rather than leave us to pore over the minutes of rates meetings days after the event. BRITAINS economy has enjoyed an encouraging bounce since Decembers snow-bound downturn. Ofcial gures yesterday showed no double-dip recession. At just 0.5 per cent growth was weak, though manufacturing and services were in reasonable shape. The worry was the big drop in construction, which seems odd given the better weather this year. It looks as if something is wrong with the numbers and seems likely they will be revised upwards later in the year. That should help the

HE US central bank broke with tradition yesterday by holding its rst press conference to explain its latest interest rates decision. It is following the European Central Bank, which always briefs the press. The Federal Reserve held rates at a record low of near zero, which was no surprise to the markets.

Investors rage over Barclays board pay


ANGRY shareholders took Barclays to task over dividends and excessive and obscene pay at its annual meeting yesterday. Small investors voiced their fury at the Royal Festival Hall event in London as their bigger brethren delivered a bloody nose with about 10 per cent voting against the banks remuneration report, its long-term bonus scheme and new share value plan. The vote came after the bank unveiled a 9 per cent drop in pre-tax profits to 1.65billion for the first quarter to March and announced controversial plans to buy back $10.2billion (6.2billion) in toxic loans from spin-off vehicle Protium. The move involves paying Protium managers, many former Barclays staff, a fee of $83million for just 18 months

Price freeze at Primark to hit prots


PRIMARK hailed a high street comeback yesterday but warned that its policy of not hiking prices in the face of rising costs would leave group profits flat this year. The budget fashion chains owner Associated British Foods said sales and footfall in its stores had been very strong since the start of March, helped by its spring and summer ranges and the recent warm weather. January and February were very quiet but in the run-up to Easter it has been busier. Shoppers are still feeling the squeeze but they have come back, said chief executive George Weston. Half-year sales at its 214 outlets to March 5 rose only 3 per cent, half of last years growth levels. Margins took a hit from its decision to absorb Januarys VAT rise and higher cotton costs by not raising prices. Weston warned cost pressures would grow but vowed to continue its policy of not passing these on to customers. We will stay true to ourselves, he said. However the subsequent hit to margins and a 20million dive in UK sugar profits in the second half following the destruction of some of its sugarbeet crop in the thaw after last Decembers cold snap would leave group prots at this year. It had previously forecast a prots rise. Its shares fell 61p to 984p. Broker Panmure Gordon said it was encouraged by Primarks recent performance.

work. Barclays shares fell 14p to 287p. It was pay that dominated questions. Trevor White said fellow shareholders were not being treated fairly, having seen the value of their investments and dividends fall sharply while it was back to normal for top earners. Captain David Hawker said bonuses were excessive and bankers had an arrogant, let-them-eat cake attitude towards ordinary people. Martin Simons claimed Barclays investment in British industry was down 42 per cent and compared bankers to Somali pirates, while another investor questioned the tness of Bob Diamond, left, to be chief executive

because he once ran Barclays gambling investment banking arm. Barclays chairman Marcus Agius said the dividend might be rebased once the bank knew the full costs of likely new capital requirements. He said Diamond was not a gambler but had a proven record in building businesses, demonstrated through the growth of Barclays Capital during his time in charge. The fall in prots was driven by the investment bank, where they dropped 29 per cent to 983million, fuelling worries over future growth. High street banking prots rose 21 per cent. Barclays said the Protium buy-back made economic sense in the face of tough new rules forcing the bank to hold more capital against toxic debts. By taking direct control, Barclays is hoping to sell the loans by 2014, before the Basle III rules take effect.

GLAXOSMITHKLINE posted higher profits yesterday as sell-offs and soaring demand for medicine in emerging markets offset government cuts in the US and Europe. The drugs giant said rst quarter prots rose 14 per cent to 1.52billion, helped by its 1billion stake sale in blood testing firm Quest Diagnostics and by its ofoading of North American rights to cold sore medicine Zovirax. Total sales fell 10 per cent to 6.59billion reflecting a 1billion reduction in sales of pandemic products, troubled diabetes drug Avandia and herpes treatment

Valtrex against a year ago. But underlying sales grew 4 per cent, helped by a 23 per cent jump in emerging markets demand and a 53 per cent leap in Japan driven by allergy treatments. Healthcare budget cuts saw US sales fall 4 per cent and Europe lose 5 per cent. Consumer product sales including Sensodyne toothpaste grew 7 per cent. Boss Andrew Witty said: We are now a tightly focused company with a pipeline of innovation. GSK expects its share buyback programme to be at the top end of its 1-2billion range. Its shares rose 26p to 1286p.

Groceries boost sales at Amazon


SALES of non-media items such as groceries and clothes outstripped those of books and music for the rst time at Amazon.co.uk during the rst quarter of the year. Managing director Chris North said non-media accounted for 52 per cent of all sales. However media items still dominated sales. The biggest seller was the Kindle ebook reader, followed by Adeles album 21 and the latest Jamie Oliver cookbook. Total group sales rose 38 per cent to $9.86billion (6billion), although prots fell 33 per cent to $201million.

Games online focus


VIDEO games retailer Game Group has vowed to emerge a winner by expanding online and in second-hand products despite a near 60 per cent drop in annual prots amid fierce price competition from supermarkets. Chief executive Ian Shepherd targeted a tripling of online revenues over the next three years as well as continued investment in emerging digital and mobile channels as it seeks to create a truly joined-up proposition as gamers switch between store visits and downloads. Games share of UK online revenues increased from 13 per cent in 2010 to 18 per cent since a strategic update in February but Shepherd warned that trading remained difcult. Indeed figures for the past 12 weeks showed total sales in the UK and Ireland down 14.9 per cent. In the year to January 31, Games profits before tax and one-off costs plunged from 90.4million to 37.8million on turnover of 1.63billion, down from 1.77billion last time. Game shares rose 5p to 50p as the full-year dividend was held at 5.78p. S eni o r no n-exec ut ive director Chris Bell will take over as chairman in June.

Triple blow to BP prots


BP yesterday suffered a triple blow to send first quarter prots down despite the sharp surge in oil prices. The oil giant saw prots fall by 2 per cent to $5.48billion (3.3billion) year-on-year for the three months to March as the ever-rising bill from the Gulf of Mexico, a slump in oil production and Chancellor George Osbornes tax raid on the North Sea took their toll. The shares rose 1p to 466p. BP said production was down by 11 per cent, with the biggest drag, around 100,000 barrels a day, coming from the production shutdown in the Gulf of Mexico following last years disaster. Production was also lost to asset disposals and longer-than-normal rig shutdowns as new safety measures were implemented. The firm took a further $400million charge relating to the spill, bringing the total bill to date to $41.3billion. BP last week launched legal action against three of the other rms involved. BP also took a $683million hit from Osbornes new tax on North Sea oil companies to subsidise lower duties paid by motorists at the

pump. BP expects a further $400million charge relating to further North Sea tax changes next year, bringing the total hit to more than $1billion. The fall in prots is expected to be in sharp contrast to big jumps elsewhere, with analysts predicting rival Royal Dutch Shell will reveal a 22 per cent rise in prots when it unveils rst-quarter gures today. Bernstein analyst Oswald Clint warned BP was facing a challenged outlook. And analysts warned the bill for BPs Gulf spill could rise sharply if the firm is found guilty of gross misconduct. The ongoing obligations due to the Macondo incident will hamper the near-term growth of the business and prevent dividend growth until the gross misconduct liability is resolved in 2012, said Oriel Securities Richard Rose. BP is also in talks to salvage a 10billion share swap with Russian energy giant Rosneft, and is believed to be exploring options to buy out the oligarch partners in joint-venture TNK-BP.

PINEWOOD SHEPPERTON AGREES 96M TAKEOVER


PINEWOOD Shepperton agreed a 96million takeover by property investment group Peel Holdings yesterday but left open the chance of a counter-bid from former Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed. The lm studios group, home to James Bond and led by chairman Lord Grade, said the sweetened 200p a share offer from its largest shareholder Peel, up from 190p, provided it with the stability it needed. It is planning an ambitious 20million Project Pinewood expansion to match Hollywoods studios. However, its second-largest shareholder Crystal Amber said it would withdraw its backing for Peels bid if a rival bidder bettered 250p a share. Last week Al Fayed, ushed with cash following the sale of Harrods last May to Qatar Holding Group, said he was interested in making a bid but yesterday gave no comment on his plans. Analyst Peel Hunt said: It is now up to Al Fayed or anyone else to respond. Pinewoods shares fell 9p to 203p.

MARKET REPORT
KESA Electricals was on the charge yesterday as talk of a break-up did the rounds. Shares in the group, which operates Comet stores in the UK and the French Darty chain, were marked up 8p to 128p, fuelling speculation that Knight Vinke could be adding to its stake. The activist investor has increased its holding to 14 per cent since rst disclosing a 3 per cent stake last June and there have been suggestions it could push for Comet to be ofoaded. Traders reckon Kesa, with its low debt and asset backing, could make a tempting target for private equity. Orthopaedics group Smith & Nephew fell 11p to 658p as takeover hopes faded after prospective US bidder Johnson & Johnson instead agreed to buy Swiss rm Synthes for $21.6billion (13billion).

LEICESTER racecourse was forced to abandon tomorrows Ladbrokes Croxton South Flat Handicap after trainers refused to enter their horses because of the poor prize-money. The race was 2,000 less than the minimum tariff of 7,000 required by the Horsemens Group. Two weeks ago, the track sparked controversy when the rst walkover in three years took place because of the low prize-money. Trainer William Jarvis said: Im not running purely because the race falls some way below tariff. I like Leicester, the facilities are good but theyve got to wise up. Its nothing against Leicester, it is against the tariff. Other racecourses have raised their game and so should Leicester.

Ascots costly free day


IT was free entry at Ascot yesterday but sadly for most of the 26,595 that turned up, an increase of 35 per cent on 12 months ago, not one of the six favourites obliged. The writing was on the wall after the rst race, in which 5-1 shot Miss Work Of Art turned over 1-4 chance Magic City. Champion jockey Paul Hanagan was thrilled to win Ascots rst Flat race of 2011. The further she went the better she felt. I think she has Royal Ascot potential all

right, said Hanagan. Richard Hannon jnr still thinks a good deal of the runner-up. The best horses get beaten. Youll be hearing a lot more of Magic City before the season is out. He will go for the National Stakes and then the Norfolk at Royal Ascot. The George Baker-ridden Askar Tau is a best-priced 20-1 for the Ascot Gold Cup after impressing in the Sagaro Stakes. Hes our rst Group winner of the year and hopefully we will have a few more, said trainer Marcus Tregoning. Given fast ground, we will be back

GOING FOR GOLD: Askar Tau stakes his claims for the Ascot Gold Cup

here in June. Punters relying on the favourites took further blows when Emmas Gift beat Metropolitan Miss in the X Factor Stakes and when Perfect Tribute broke the six-furlong course record in the Pavilion Stakes. Emmas Gift is trained by Julie Feilden and was ridden by her nephew Adam Beschizza. Both were making their rst visit to Ascots winners enclosure. The nearest I got as a rider here was when fourth in the Diamond Stakes many years ago, said Feilden. You hope one day you will have one good enough to win here. Its a dream come true.

GALLOPS GOSSIP
Manton: LHERMITAGE (2.40 Bath) Looked a little bit lazy when fourth at Newmarket last time so the tting of blinkers could bring about a much better result. South: BUXTON (6.05 Brighton) Relished the return to turf when easily accounting for his rivals over C&D last time and a similar effort could sufce. Borders: TARTAN SNOW (3.50 Perth) Stormed home to score over a shorter trip at Kelso last time and an 8lb higher mark may not be enough to stop the in-form veteran. Newmarket: EASTERN GIFT (7.35 Brighton) Continues in ne form this spring and meets his C&D conqueror Princess Lexi on 7lb better terms this time.

Rocket fails to ignite


But Ronnie says he will cope with Higgins defeat
But the Rocket claims that sports mind guru Dr Steve Peters has delivered him a way of coping with the pain of sub-standard defeat. OSullivan crashed out of the Betfred.com World Championship 13-10 to Higgins in their Shefeld quarter-nal. A rusty OSullivan, a three-time champion, appeared to lack match sharpness after a campaign in which he has missed 12 tournaments. There had also been a run of four successive rst-round exits for OSullivan before arriving in south Yorkshire. And Higgins, still on course for a fourth world title, took advantage as his opponent squandered countless chances. OSullivan led 8-5, but costly errors let the Wizard of Wishaw off the hook, as Higgins claimed eight of the last 10 frames. OSullivans preparations for the event had been poor, having withdrawn before changing his mind. He has also been seeing top sports psychiatrist Dr Peters and credits him with a better frame of mind, but Higgins was too tough a hurdle. It was the pairs fth

RELIEF: Higgins celebrates his back-to-the wall victory over OSullivan, inset, to reach the semi-nals

RONNIE OSULLIVAN saw his hopes of a fourth world title crushed at the Crucible last night by old rival John Higgins.

By Hector Nunns
meeting on snookers biggest stage and Higgins now has the edge 3-2 in the head to head. The outgoing world No1 will now take on his likely replacement Welshman Mark Williams for a place in this years nal. OSullivan said: I had enough chances, but my game is just not up to the right level. That said, I didnt beat myself up so much and I am in a better place. I felt better than for some of my world titles. I have been seeing someone and there are positives. I didnt know what to expect, but some of the mistakes were sub-standard, just unforgiveable at any level. But if I can feel better about playing that rubbish, then I might hang around. Higgins said: I thought I was going home at 8-5 down, I have no idea how I got back to 8-8. There was a moment when I thought Ronnie lost control when I was 10-9 up, when he was alternating right and left-handed. Judd Trump, meanwhile, admitted yesterday he feels invincible as the 21-year-olds fairytale run at the Crucible carried him into a rst semi-nal at the venue. The star of the tournament and new darling of the crowd in Shefeld

made light work of beating former champion Graeme Dott 13-5. Trump, a Bristol-born left-hander now based in Romford where he practises with OSullivan, lit up the famous arena with a breathtaking display of uninhibited potting. Having won his rst ranking title just over three weeks ago in China, Trump is on the sort of roll that can

Geoff Miller has added his voice to a growing chorus of opinion insisting this winters gruelling touring schedule has been damaging to Englands progress.

gideon brooks
reports

National selector Miller followed England coach Andy Flower, spinner Graeme Swann and captain Andrew Strauss in stating a touring schedule that included five months away from home was unacceptable. Moreover, he agreed it should not be repeated. Ahead of the mid-May ECB debrief when Flower is expected to extend his contract by three more years albeit with a caveat about being able to opt out of a future tour everyone appears to be singing from the same hymn sheet. An Ashes contest followed by an ODI series then seven weeks at the World Cup afforded England just four nights at home between October and April and left them out on their feet. Not only did it result in an unacceptably high number of injuries but, according to Miller, it also contributed to Englands exit in the quarter-finals of the World Cup a defeat that has left Strausss position at the

helm of the ODI side under question, not least from the captain himself. The appointment of Duncan Fletcher as India coach on a two-year contract yesterday did at least remove the outside possibility that Flower might have been tempted to jump ship however unlikely that might have been. But Miller insisted

it is because its going to affect Test cricket injuries and fatigue creep in. We will be sitting down and having a meeting after the lads [Strauss and Flower] have had a break, reviewing the winter and taking it from there. That will be in a week or two. Whether the concerns are taken into account remains to be seen. Next winters schedule is yet to be finalised, although England will tour India and possibly Bangladesh before Christmas, then Pakistan at a neutral venue and Sri Lanka,

Barney Gibson has broken a 144-year record to become the youngest first-class cricketer to play in England. Aged just 15 and 27 days, Gibson was given special permission to play against Durham University by Crawshaw School, Pudsey, where he is a fourth-year pupil. The youngster claimed two catches and Yorkshire director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: Barney is very advanced, and its amazing that he is playing so young. the men who agree Englands touring schedule at the top of the ECB need to listen to the coaching and playing staffs concerns. We cannot have a situation like we did in the winter and I agree entirely with what Andy Flower said about it, said Miller. We need to be involved in the structuring and it cant go on as both in early 2012. If Flower is ceded some degree of control over his personal situation in a new contract, the ECB will at least have accepted there is a problem. But whether that represents concern or just permission to throw himself from a horse that has bolted and is not slowing down is a moot point. Either

way, there will be relief at Headquarters at the news that former England coach Fletcher and not Flower is to take on the India job. Ironically, his first task could be the first Test at Lords in late July. Fletcher, 62, who coached England between 1999 and 2007, has existing commitments that preclude him joining up with the World Cup winners and No1 ranked Test side on their upcoming tour of the West Indies. Former England captain Michael Vaughan, who shared the summer high of 2005 Ashes victory with Fletcher, believes he will make a great success of the job. A great coach who will work well with [Mahendra Singh] Dhoni and all the talent, he posted on his Twitter page. But Vaughan also suggested that if Fletcher was to fall down somewhere it would probably be in his dealings with the media, which will provide his biggest challenge. It will be fascinating to see how the famously grumpy Zimbabwean deals with Indias forensic media scrutiny as time goes on and, more pressingly, given his at times prickly relationship with the English press, this summer.

DOWN UNDER: Graham is off to play in the NRL

Britains new Bulldog


JAMES GRAHAM has given up the lure of a testimonial with his beloved St Helens to take on the role of the British Bulldog in Australias esteemed NRL. The Saints skipper and 2008 Man of Steel has agreed a threeyear contract with the Canterbury Bulldogs, starting next season. It ends a seven-month pursuit of the red-haired prop that began while he was in Australia skippering England in last years Four Nations. Canterbury fended off rival offers from Canberra Raiders and Sydney Roosters for the signature of the

25-year-old, who will join fellow England internationals Gareth Ellis, Sam Burgess and Gareth Widdup in the NRL. Like Burgess and Ellis, Graham wants to test himself in the best competition in the world. And the continuing strength of the Australian dollar and the Sydney lifestyle could see more English stars joining the exodus. Saints, who are also set to lose Kiwi prop Tony Puletua, hope to plug the gaps by enticing Australia forwards Anthony Laffranchi of Gold Coast Titans and Penriths Trent Waterhouse to the club, as revealed in Daily Express Sport on Monday. Laffranchi, 30, has a European passport because of his Italian heritage and would

not count on the overseas quota. He is also interesting Leeds and Huddersfield. Tigers prop Bryce Gibbs is another possible Saints target. Unlike the anger directed towards Kyle Eastmond after his decision to switch codes with Bath, Saints fans have jammed the chatrooms with good-luck messages for Graham. The decision to leave Saints has been by far the biggest of my career. Ive been on the books with Saints since I was 11 and I grew up supporting the club, said Graham. I love the place and I never wanted to play against them, so I didnt consider any other Super League options. Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore said: He has been among the best props in the world for a number of years and hes going to make a big impression.

SAILING

England captain Lewis Moody has hardly played since January and missed the entire Six Nations but, despite the domestic season running out, he still believes he will be in perfect shape for this years World Cup.
But Moody needs games. Bath have only their away and home Premiership fixtures against relegation-haunted Newcastle, with the prospect of a top-four play-off place distant, even after their thrashing of Wasps in Moodys latest comeback. England have their non-cap seasonal finale against the Barbarians, but Moody is hedging about any involvement in that. That would then give him, at maximum, the three August warm-up Tests. This is his predicament after a truncated first season in Bath, most recently caused by successive knee injuries, after 14 with Leicester. This latest setback has been very, very annoying, said Moody. One week you think you can come back, then its still not right. When it keeps going on like that for a while, it drains you mentally. We have a couple of games left and all I can do is

Moody back in top shape for England


guys who came in did a great job. Its brilliant for us as a squad when people have been injured and the replacements have played so well. Every single player in our World Cup squad will have proved himself in international rugby. You could argue that this is something the All Blacks and Aussies at previous World Cups have struggled with when they have lost key players and those who came in havent been as good. This is a big claim, but it does demonstrate Moodys confidence about the 2011 tournament, based also on the direct comparison drawn from his participation in 2003 and 2007. Ive been very lucky to have played in two World Cup finals, he said. In 2003 we went as favourites and we deservedly won it. In 2007 we went as rank outsiders and still made it to the final with the chance of winning. Take both of those campaigns we are certainly not where we were in 2003, but we are far better prepared than we were in 2007. So we are somewhere in between and that bodes very well. Having seen what a pigs ear we made of it at the start of 2007 and how badly we were playing prior to going into that World Cup, to think we made the final was incredible. I know there was no way that was a perfect structure to go to that tournament. But equally I know the possibilities. If you can go to the World Cup and play in every game as well as we can do, it gives you an opportunity to be in the final. Its my goal and focus to be part of that. In truth, England made the last final despite performing far worse than they could have done through the pool stage. So the possibilities are that much greater if Moodys team really do maximise themselves. But can he make it through the four short months to September, when every time he takes the field he is imperilled by the very nature of his play? The answer is, whatever the self-inflicted danger, Moody will not be moderating a relentlessly daredevil style. The simple fact is you put your body at risk every time you go on to a rugby pitch, he said. The manner in which I play isnt conducive to being fit for a lot of the time, but I get the most out of how I play and, if I didnt play like that, I wouldnt be as effective. You cant legislate for injuries, but Ive had more than my fair share, so maybe lady luck will now be on my side at last.

CYCLING
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has reiterated its aim of ruling on the Alberto Contador case before the Tour de France in July, after naming a panel for the hearing. The International Cycling Union and the World Anti-doping Agency last month appealed to the CAS over a decision by the Spanish Cycling Federation to acquit three-times Tour winner Contador following a failed drugs test last year. Contador, 28, blamed contaminated meat for his positive test.

EXETER were last night docked two points and fined 5,000 for fielding three overseas players one over the limit on two occasions. The promoted club stay ninth, 17 points clear of relegation. Gloucesters French hooker Olivier Azam received a four-week ban for butting Adam Eustace of Northampton last Tuesday. He is now likely to retire, while Baths ex-Lions and England lock Danny Grewcock, 38, will hang up his boots at the end of the season.
play in them. Im not sure about the Barbarians but we have another three prior to the World Cup and a lot of training, so I will be in a good position. Ive just had what amounts to a pre-season and the body feels great. All we can do here is take maximum points from the games we have. If we do, we are in as good a position as we can be for one of the other teams to slip up. That would be another bonus. Moody will be 33 in June and already has manager Martin Johnsons blessing to lead England to the World Cup in New Zealand. Johnsons preference for his former fellow Tiger reflects his esteem, even after the striking back-row contributions made by Tom Wood and James Haskell while Moody was a Six Nations spectator. Its a great compliment coming from someone for whom I have so much respect, said Moody. When youre not fit, other people have the opportunity and the

Barker eyes a big Match


DARREN BARKER is aiming to show what British fight fans have been missing on Saturday as he challenges highly rated Spaniard Domenico Spada for the vacant European middleweight title. It is Barkers first outing under new promoters Matchroom following his split from long-term associate Mick Hennessy and it feels like a new start after just a single fight in the last 18 months. I had to make a change and moving to Eddie and Barry Hearn has been the right thing to do, said Barnet

By Niall Hickman
boxer Barker. Sometimes change is required. I felt moving promoters would benefit my career. I respect my opponent a lot. He has never been stopped or put on the canvas so I know exactly what I am up against. He is a quality fighter and he will come to take the title away. Barker, 28, has been the next big noise in British boxing for several years and it does make him jealous that middleweight rival Matthew Macklin has bagged a

world-title opportunity ahead of him, against Felix Sturm this summer. I am surprised he is where he is in the rankings above me, said Barker. But he has his world-title chance and I hope he takes

it. Unbeaten Barkers silky skills have caught the eye for years and victory over Spada at Londons Olympia could secure his own world-title shot. This will be his first fight since becoming a father. Its an incredible feeling being a dad, said Barker. Hopefully, before the year is finished, I can bring back the world title to my family.

OH DADDY: Barker wants a shot at world title

Haye wins first round


DAVID HAYE believes he has scored a psychological victory over Wladimir Klitschko before their Hamburg bout on July 2.

Britains WBA champion Haye had to bend over backwards in concessions to make the heavyweight clash with the IBF/WBO title-holder happen and claims that shows Klitschko has some mental weaknesses. Haye had to agree to entering the Hamburg arena first, and into a smaller ring than is standard, allowing Klitschko to choose his corner with his own doctor ringside. Haye said: The biggest one has probably been the location. Most fighters always want to fight on their home turf, especially a fight of this magnitude. But these guys, they want it their way or it doesnt happen. Its like a safety blanket definitely. And that shows a sign of mental weakness, that he has to have things his way. He wants to walk to the ring second, as a champion does. These are deal-breakers for these guys if he doesnt have that, then the fight will not happen. I said to him, Come on, dude. Why not flip a coin? Let fate decide. But, no. This was it for him. He also stipulated the size of the ring, but honestly, thats fine. I feel that is the first round to me already. He needs to feel comfortable. And that mental weakness will come out during the fight and my mental toughness will also come out. The thing I was focused on was the fact everything goes into the pot and we split it 50-50, even though I bring more to it than he does, Im the draw. Fighting in Germany doesnt worry me at all as Ive won my two big titles abroad, including ripping that WBA /lmx

I can see in his eyes he despises me

title there off that giant Nikolay Valuev. Haye and Klitschko have long swapped insults and came face to face in New York this week. Ive never seen him so aggressive before, said Haye. Wladimir tries to act all calm and cool, but at one stage I was sure he was going to jump across the table and try and hit me. I know hes up for this fight and hes not going to come out and do his usual jab, jab and grab. Hes going to go to war and thats what we all want. I can see it in his eyes, he genuinely despises me and that always makes for a tremendous fight. When you get someone who wants to do some damage to the other guy, he comes at him. It means he gets excited and that always makes for a more entertaining fight for all the fans. The pair were scheduled to have met in July 2009 in Germany, only for Haye to withdraw with back trouble and Klitschko said: I will not believe this fight until I see David Haye in the corner on July 2. Thank God he is going first. Then Ill see hes there, so I can come in. But Hayes message is stark. Once that first bell rings, it doesnt matter who the referee or judges are, which doctor he has got there, it wont help him, he said. He has got nowhere to hide. The world will be watching and hes going to get destroyed, taken out. And I will become the unified heavyweight champion of the world. And thats it, dream come true.

FOOTBALL: BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE

CHELSEA have moved closer to their rst signing of the summer with the news that Bayern Munich have pulled out of the running for 15 million Ajax and Holland defender Gregory van der Wiel. Bayern had looked favourites to sign full-back Van der Wiel, 23, until yesterday, when it was revealed they had put any move on the back burner because of nancial concerns. Chelsea are likely to face competition from Arsenal and Manchester City. Van der Wiel said: I have never left Amsterdam so I dont know what life VAN DER WIEL is like elsewhere. It would be a huge challenge, but it ought to work out well. I want to win trophies, keep progressing and play at the very highest level. ARSENAL will renew interest in Blackburn defender Phil Jones this summer as Arsene Wenger seeks to add steel to his defence. But the Gunners, who had a 9 million offer for Jones rejected last year, will face a bidding war with Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham. It seems certain Jones will leave Ewood Park at the end of the season, but Rovers will demand 15m for the teenager after seeing Chris Smalling join United for 10.9m with less experience. Liverpool are also thought to be eyeing up a move for Gunners left-back Gael Clichy, whose contract expires at the end of next season.

FOOTBALL SHORTS
Arsenals long-term injury victim Thomas Vermaelen could make his comeback in the reserves against Manchester United tonight. TOTTENHAM want to sign Brazilian-born Italy striker Amauri, according to the players agent, Ernesto Bronzetti. Amauri, 30, has scored seven goals in 11 games at Parma on loan from Juventus and Bronzetti said: There are at least eight bids for him from Spain, Germany and England, where I know Tottenham are interested. UEFA have announced a new 400 million, three-year deal for Champions League rights with Sky and ITV but Englands top clubs face a major drop in their income from the competition if a European ruling goes against them. William Gaillard, adviser to UEFA president Michel Platini, said a European Court of Justice case could force a major shake-up in the sale of TV rights across the continent. Gaillard said: GAILLARD This may force us to sell the rights on a Europe-wide basis, which would prevent us from identifying individual national TV pools. That will be bad news for clubs in big TV markets such as England.

Up or down, West Ham want ONeill

holds out for a more attractive offer from elsewhere, then West Ham will also enquire about Lambert, who is closing in on a second successive promotion with Norwich. Lambert has won many admirers for leading Norwich out of League One and to the brink of promotion to the Premier League. His side currently occupy the second automatic promotion place with only two Championship games of the season remaining. Having played under ONeill at Celtic, Lamberts management style has been compared with that of his former boss and the pair share similar training and playing philosophies. Lambert turned down an approach from Burnley in January and may be similarly reluctant to take up the challenge at Upton Park. Whatever happens over the nal four Premier League games of this season, West Ham insiders are expecting big changes to the backroom and playing staff. Former Hammers forward Cross is the rst member of the current staff to leave, bringing an end to an association with the club that started as a 15-year-old on the groundstaff in 1964. He made eight

And if the Hammers fail to get ONeill then they have identied his clone, Norwich City boss Paul Lambert, as an alternative. Grant is expected to be sacked at the end of the season whether West Ham stay up or are relegated to the Championship, and the streamlining of staff has already started after the club parted company with long-serving chief scout Roger Cross. Sources at Upton Park claim ONeill is still the No1 choice of co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold to replace Grant, despite the fact he turned down the job in January. Having been sounded out by the Hammers, ONeill was upset that his possible appointment was leaked out while Grant remained in charge ahead of the home game against Arsenal. Despite being offered a bonus of about 3million to keep West Ham up, ONeill did not accept the job and has now been out of work for eight months since quitting Aston Villa days before the start of the season. If they are relegated, the Hammers would be prepared to offer ONeill a similar incentive to get them promoted at the rst attempt. West Ham hope ONeill will have a change of heart in the summer, when they can sort out Grants pay-off terms before formally approaching him. But if ONeill

It is unclear whether Cross will be replaced after his role was diminished by the active part agent Barry Silkman has played in identifying and signing new players since Sullivan and Gold took control of the club. The Hammers will need to quickly identify new signings, with a number of their current squad expected to leave. Aston Villa are condent of signing goalkeeper Robert Green, while there will be a battle involving Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal for the services of Football Writers Player of the Year Scott Parker. Strikers Carlton Cole and Frederic Piquionne have also attracted the interest of Premier League clubs. West Hams hopes of survival have been dealt a blow by the news they are set to be without mideld duo Parker and Mark Noble for Sundays trip to Manchester City. Parker did not train yesterday because of the Achilles tendon injury that kept him out of the Aston Villa and Chelsea games, and it is looking increasingly likely that he will now be saved for the Hammers nal three matches against Blackburn, Wigan and Sunderland. Noble, 23, is also expected to miss at least the City game after tests revealed he is suffering a hernia problem that will require treatment. West Ham are now assessing the extent of the issue to determine whether he will be able to play again this season. ***/lmx

football: barclays premier league Fulham Bolton


By Gideon Brooks Mark Hughes has always placed great store in the fact that his teams finish the season stronger than they start and his latest project Fulham would appear to be no exception.

Fulham (1)........... 3 Bolton (0).........0

Having been deep in trouble in the relegation places at Christmas, last nights comfortable victory over Bolton pushed them to ninth in the Premier League table. Two goals from Clint Dempsey and another from Brede Hangeland completed the victory for Hughes men and further embellished an already impressive home record in 2011. Since Hughes was booed from the field here after the 3-1 defeat against West Ham on Boxing Day a result that left him fearing for his job Fulham have won six and drawn one match. The only points dropped were against neighbours Chelsea. And although Hughes conceded that resolve would be tested with the visits of Liverpool and Arsenal before the end of this campaign, he insisted he will challenge the players to keep that unbeaten run in 2011 intact. It will be something to play for as the season winds towards its conclusion. But if the players needed further incentive, Hughes said that he was already narrowing his focus on transfer targets for the summer. I have said time and time again that we are a top-10 side and we are in there now, said Hughes after seeing the nights work move them up five places to ninth, just behind Bolton. We are a good side and I think we showed that tonight and, yes, we are safe now. But we still have challenges and that is good at this time of year. Hughes made no changes to the side that had drawn with Wolves last Saturday, aside from leaving the water bottles alone, something which got him sent to the stands on Saturday. But Bobby Zamora was at least on the bench after missing that match with a tweaked back. On-loan striker Daniel Sturridge, scorer of seven in his last nine games, was ruled out for the visitors after he failed to recover from an ankle knock sustained in the victory over Arsenal. Sturridges loss was a big one. After bouncing back from

Now Hughes has a Clint in his eye


FA Cup semi-final humiliation to end Arsenals title hopes on Sunday, Bolton found the effort of maintaining that high beyond them last night. What was important for us was that they gave a big performance on the back of the disappointment against Stoke, said boss Owen Coyle. They did against Arsenal but it was always going to be a big ask both physically and mentally here. If wed got the first goal who knows, but we didnt and Fulham did. Fulham are a good side and they deserved the three points. Eidur Gudjohnsen spurned a golden opportunity for Fulham early on, spooning Dempseys centre over from six yards, but the American put Fulham ahead in the 15th minute with a well-struck volley. Gudjohnsen nearly made amends for his earlier miss as Fulham started to expand their play, running on to Chris Bairds pin-point long ball to chip the ball delicately over the advancing Jussi Jaaskelainen, only to be denied by the post after 24 minutes.. Dempsey added his second, after the break, meeting a flick from Gudjohnsen after Simon Davies had whipped the ball in from a short corner. It was Dempseys 12th of the season in the league and made him Fulhams top Premier League scorer, his 33rd strike taking him past Steed

DOUBLE TROUBLE: Clint Dempsey rifles home his first of two goals from a half-cleared corner to put Fulham on the road to victory

FULHAM will make another move to lure Shaun Wright-Phillips to Craven Cottage at the end of the season. They failed with a loan move in January, but Wright-Phillips, 29, is still top of manager Mark Hughes wish-list. Wright-Phillips, right, has been a bit-part player at Manchester City this season. He put in a transfer request in

January and Fulham and Bolton moved in for him, but neither matched Citys 4 million valuation and they refused to loan him out. Fulham hope a 3.5m fee might be more agreeable and Hughes is looking to bring in a replacement for Simon Davies, who has been hit by injuries. TONY BANKS

Malbranque and Brian McBride. Hangeland added a third after 65 minutes and Steve Sidwell was unlucky to have a fourth chalked off for handball, bringing down Daviess long cross with his shoulder and hammering the ball into the net in the 78th minute. But it did not much matter by then. No need to abuse water bottles for Hughes tonight. This was more a night for popping champagne corks and drinking to next season.

HES BEHIND YOU: Schalke star Raul keeps a close watch on Patrice Evra

FOOTBALL: champions league semi-finals

Evra will take up yoga to last just like Giggs


Patrice Evra last night vowed to sign up for yoga classes after watching Ryan Giggs inspire Manchester United to the brink of the Champions League final. Giggs, 37, has thanked yoga for prolonging his career over two decades and nearly 900 games. And after watching Giggs notch up another career milestone in the 2-0 win over Schalke by becoming the oldest player to score in the competition, Evra wants to copy his example. France defender Evra, 30, said: Ryan has been talking to us about his yoga. He says that is what makes him run fast, and Im going to sign up for it right away. He is 37, he still runs more than almost anyone else on the pitch, and he makes a difference. It is really impressive and he is a legend and an example to follow. Evra reckons the pressure got to Schalke on Tuesday when United dominated the game and would have won by a bigger margin if not for the heroics of goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Schalke remind me of the Monaco team I played in when we lost to Porto in the 2004 final, said Evra. It was a great journey for us, but at that point the pressure got to us. The Champions League is magical but, at a certain point, it becomes serious. Maybe Schalke could not cope with the pressure surrounding this game, but we could. Despite being overwhelming favourites to finish the job at Old Trafford next Wednesday and reach the final at Wembley, Evra has warned United against complacency. We know Schalke scored five times against Inter Milan at the San Siro, so we wont underestimate them. And in Monacos run to the 2004 final I remember us losing 4-2 to Real Madrid in a quarter-final, first leg at the Bernabeu. Madrid thought they were going through, but we beat them 3-1 to reach the semi-finals. In football, you never know, so we have to be as professional in the second leg as we were in Germany. We have to win at Old Trafford. If we dont get to the final now, it would be the biggest disaster of all our careers because now we are so near.

Rooney just like a kid with old toy


AMID the euphoria of Manchester Uniteds stylish win over Schalke, Wayne Rooney spoke of his delight at going back to the future.

richard tanner
reports

After such a troubled first half to the season on and off the pitch, Rooney is finishing it not only back at his best but also restored to the position where he feels he is best suited. A play-making role roaming between midfield and attack, where he can be on the ball all the time, utilising the space created by the speed and movement of Javier Hernandez and being able to influence the game, was shown at its best in Gelsenkirchen on Tuesday. It is a position Rooney played in as a schoolboy, as a youth player and also when he broke into Evertons first team as a precocious teenager. Since joining United he has been moved around without complaint and has never let Sir Alex Ferguson or the team down, whether it has been in a wide midfield role requiring discipline and concentration, or as an out-and-out centre-forward where the only responsibility is to score. But ask Rooney where he likes to play best and it is where he is now the No10 role perfected by France legend and UEFA president Michel

Platini, who was nodding his approval as he watched Rooney give Schalke the runaround in the Veltins-Arena. It said much about the turnaround in Rooneys fortunes since he spent at week at a Nike boot camp at their HQ in Portland, Oregon last November to get his head straight and work on his conditioning after his early season woes. After making the

up front with him I would have to change and play a bit deeper. He is scoring a lot of important goals and I am enjoying getting on the ball, linking play and getting a few goals myself. You can influence games a lot more from there. Sometimes when you play up front on your own, youre not really in the game as much, youre waiting for your opportunity to score. But in the position Im in now youre always involved, you can create and score. As a footballer you enjoy that. Rooney believes Uniteds style has undergone a subtle

I played in this role as a youngsterIm enjoying it


first goal for Ryan Giggs and scoring the second himself to put United on the brink of the Champions League final, Rooney said: I am playing well at the moment in a role in which I played a lot when I was younger and Im enjoying it. Chicharito [Hernandez] is playing fantastic and so is Giggsy in central midfield and it seems to be working for us. I understand the way Chicharito plays and knew if I was playing change since they reached back-to-back Champions League finals in 2008 and 2009 when their focal point was Cristiano Ronaldos mesmeric ball trickery and searing pace. And should they complete the formality of winning the home leg against Schalke at Old Trafford next Wednesday, he feels they will be better suited to facing either Barcelona, who passed them off the pitch in the 2009 final,

or Real Madrid, where Ronaldo is now strutting his stuff. An indication of Uniteds authority, composure and ball retention is that they have lost only one of their last 23 away games in Europe and have set a Champions League record by keeping a clean sheet in each of their six games on the road this season. We are controlling games a lot better now than in the lead-up to the last two finals, said Rooney. Then we were about counter attacking and a lot of pace, but now we are controlling games a lot more as well as having a lot more possession. We are using the experience that I and a lot of this squad have to get through games. We know we are in a great position to get to the final and we are hoping to stay fully focused to get the job done at Old Trafford. To get back to a final so soon after that one in Rome would be a great achievement for us. In 2009 we were just beaten by a better team. Barcelona were a lot better than us on the night and deserved the victory. Sometimes you have to hold your hands up. After the trauma that marred his autumn and early winter on and off the pitch, Rooney is finishing the campaign with a flourish his goal against Schalke was his 14th of the

Richard Tanner

It irritates me
MANUEL NEUER says words of praise from Sir Alex Ferguson were no consolation after Schalkes defeat. United boss Ferguson hailed the Germany internationals display as the best goalkeeping performance against the club since he became manager. Neuer, poised to leave Schalke in the summer with Bayern Munich his expected destination, pulled off a succession of outstanding first-half saves to keep his side in the game, before he was beaten by efforts from Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney after the break. Asked if Fergusons comments made him proud, he said: Of course its nice to hear things like that. But we have lost 2-0 and that irritates me very much. Neuer claimed Schalke showed United too much respect. It was not nerves, but the respect was very big perhaps too big, he said. And he admitted his side had nothing more to lose in next Wednesdays second leg at Old Trafford and that they were not out of it. The first half will be nervous, he said. Should we go 1-0 up there would still be a chance. The crowd will also get nervous. They expect a clear win against the underdog and we need a perfect day. WELL DONE, SON: Ferguson congratulates Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer

Although all the indications are that Manuel Neuer will stay in Germany, I will be very surprised if Sir Alex Ferguson does not make some discreet inquiries about him over the next few weeks. His performance against United in the Champions League semi-final was one of the best by a goalkeeper Ive seen for a few years and warrants, at the very least, a call to confirm what his future intentions are. It is not often Ferguson goes out to shake the hand of the opposing keeper, but he made a point of it on Tuesday night. United will have been aware of Neuer for years and will have regularly scouted him as they have several other goalkeepers around Europe. And, despite all the talk of Neuer moving to Bayern Munich, it wouldnt surprise me if he ended up at Old Trafford. Ferguson has often talked about his regret at not signing Edwin van der Sar as Peter

TURMOIL AT OLD TRAFFORD: It was certainly no laughing matter for Sir Alex Ferguson as the Rooney saga broke in the Daily Express in October, as he accused the England star of betraying United

BUSBY: As played by Dougray Scott

Busby left great gift


DAVID MILLER reects on last Sundays BBC United lm and compares the legendary Sir Matt Busby with present-day great Sir Alex Ferguson after the clubs latest European triumph.
SIR MATT BUSBY used to tell Bryan Robson, mideld dynamo of Manchester United and England: Have fun theres no other point in playing. I doubt whether the same conversation took place between Sir Alex Ferguson and Roy Keane, a pair unwaveringly and shamelessly wedded to the exclusivity of winning. The drama-documentary United, screened by BBC2 last Sunday, provided a timely opportunity to compare the relative achievements of Busby and Ferguson, the latters exceptional statistic 22 major titles in 24 seasons having long surpassed that of the fellow Scot who laid historic foundations of Uniteds fame. What, often asked, is the difference between them? Ferguson hates the ignominy of losing, but it is to his enduring credit that, like Busby, he has persisted with adventure, with wingers, with youth witness the era of Beckham, Scholes, Butt and the Nevilles. But Busbys young team captured the publics heart in an era when international club football was so fresh and so vibrant. None can detract from Fergusons amazingly consistent cavalcade of success, but the Babes appeal entered every home in the land, irrespective of club allegiances. This was Busbys imperishable gift to the game.

season, 12 of them coming in 20 appearances since New Years Day, while his tally of assists continues to mount. He said: You look forward to every game at this stage and youve got to enjoy it, especially when you are in the running for a few trophies. Its exciting for the fans and its exciting for the players, knowing that youre just a few weeks from possibly winning a major trophy or two. We are in a really strong position in the Premier League and we are one step closer to Wembley and the Champions League nal. It would be a great end to the season by winning the League and making a Champions League nal appearance. Outshining Ronaldo or Lionel Messi at Wembley on May 28 would not be a bad way for Rooney to sign off.

I know I made a mistake


FROM BACK PAGE happier with the way Im playing, its like Ive been settling down again. Im very grateful to the fans for supporting me through it and Im delighted with my form again. I hope I am proving myself through my performances. Obviously, I understand I made a mistake. When I look at it now, how wrong was I? I admitted that and I apologised for that and I have wanted to try and prove myself again to the Manchester United fans. I feel I am doing that now. Rooney added: It was a long time ago now and hopefully I am helping this team be successful. I am 100 per cent committed to this club. Now it would be a great end to the season to reach a Champions League nal and win the Premier League. And team-mate Rio Ferdinand is also determined to clinch more success with United. He said: If I nish in two years time with what I have now, I wouldnt be satised. No chance. I would be having nightmares. There is so much to be won. If we didnt win the league this year I would be devastated. I want to win the league this year, next year and every year I am playing. This is our fourth Champions League semi-nal in ve years and we have only won it once. There is a lot of disappointment in those four years. People want us to lose because we have won the league three out of the last four years and they probably want to see a little bit of variation. But they can have those opinions and keep talking like that. We just try to win games. If we win games and end up winning titles, we wont be thinking about what people have said. Ferdinand added: What sets us apart from other teams is that the hunger never dies. It stems from the manager and lters down through the squad. That is the basis on which we do our work every single day.

Schmeichels replacement in 1999 and he will not want a repeat scenario. He signed a succession of different goalkeepers to ll the void some of them very capable such as the Australian Mark Bosnich, Italian Fabien Barthez and American Tim Howard. But none lived up to the inevitable comparisons with Schmeichel until Ferguson nally landed Van der Sar. Now Van der Sar is hanging up his gloves and it presents Ferguson with his most important decision of the summer. It will be a blow for United if they dont land Neuer because he looks perfect for them. He reminds

me of Schmeichel in so many ways. His size, his imposing presence and the way he lets his defenders know in no uncertain manner if he is unhappy with them. Like Schmeichel, he has the nerve and ability to force the striker to make the rst move. He stands up for so long and then, when the striker makes his move, his reexes are so sharp. When I went back to Aston Villa for my second spell as manager, Schmeichel was there for a short spell before ending his career at Manchester City. When it came to shooting practice in training, he used to dare the

strikers to beat him, taunting them that they were not good enough to do it. He had an aura of self-condence. Neuer has a similar aura. To make your goalkeeper the team captain is unusual. The fact that Neuer is so young and captain of Schalke is even more unusual. But it tells you everything about his maturity and leadership skills, not to mention the respect he commands among his team-mates. Football fans often point to the striker when a chance is missed and say, He should have buried that. But that often overlooks the save made by the goalkeeper. United did not so much miss all those chances in the Veltins Stadium, it was more a case of Neuer saving them. And I think everyone recognised it was a very special performance. Neuer also impressed me in his post-match interview when he spoke of his disappointment

at the two goals he let in rather than all the saves he had made. Brian Clough used to say that Peter Shilton was worth a dozen or so points a season to Nottingham Forest and Neuer underlined the other night how important a good goalkeeper is to a team. He kept Schalke in a game they should have been out of by half-time. For all their attacking amboyance over the years, Uniteds foundation has always been a top goalkeeper and a well organised defence. That is why nding the right replacement for Van der Sar is so crucial this summer and Ferguson is well aware of that. The new man not only needs to be a worldclass goalkeeper but also a big, condent personality like Schmeichel and Van der Sar. They always say get the spine of your team right goalkeeper, centre-half and centreforward because if one of them is weak it will be costly to the team.

MESSI MAGIC: Barcelonas Lionel Messi eludes Sergio Ramos to score his second goal

REAL MADRID 0 BARCELONA 2


JOSE MOURINHO lost one of his players, lost his head and lost the match last night.

WorldMags

Real Madrid coach Mourinho made a series of allegations after his team had suffered a crushing defeat by Barcelona in the Champions League semi-nal rst leg. Midelder Pepe was harshly dismissed in the second half and Mourinho berated everyone in sight, clapped the referee and then winked sarcastically at the fourth ofcial. So the Real coach was sent to the stand. He has a suspended two-game ban hanging over him for encouraging deliberate yellow cards at the group stage and, if that is implemented, he will miss next Tuesdays second leg and the nal if Real get there. That prospect became extremely unlikely when Lionel Messi scored two goals in the last 14 minutes an example of football breaking out to end the ghting. But after both teams were locked in their dressing rooms until they had calmed down, Mourinho moped into the media room to list a series of his perceived villains. The rst was Tom Henning Ovrebo the referee who denied Chelsea a string of penalties against Barcelona two years ago. Next up was Massimo Busacca the referee who gave Arsenals Robin van Persie a second yellow for playing on after a whistle against Barcelona this season. Then came Frank De Bleeckere who dismissed Thiago Motta of Mourinhos Inter Milan. And Mourinhos nal target was last nights referee, Germanys Wolfgang Stark. Mourinho said: I said nothing to the ref. I just laughed and applauded his decision with my ngers without really applauding. If I tell him and UEFA what I think and what I feel, my career will nish today. As I cannot I will only leave a question? Why? Why? Why Ovrebo? Why Busacca? Why De Bleeckere? Why Stark? Why? Why? He would have been better employed asking, How? How did

Barcelona manage to deliver such a devastating response to an extraordinary Pep talk? On the eve of this clash, Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola, goaded by Mourinhos mind games, said that although the Portuguese always won the battles of words, his team would win the football. Messi backed up Guardiolas threat. First he turned in Ibrahim Afellays cross and then, with three minutes left, he slalomed around a posse of defenders to score a sensational second. Guardiola said: Its not the rst time he has done that. He has wonderful ability to take on players and hes only 23 and already the third highest top scorer at Barcelona. Third! At a 100-year-old club! Its absolutely incredible. Thats the beauty of our football and the way we play. And the rst thing we did when we lost the

Spanish Cup nal last week was congratulate Real Madrid. The enmity between these teams and these fans is one of the world games great rivalries, but it is about more than mere sport. The intense feeling which was so evident last night is inseparable from the politics and history of the two cities represented. Madrid is the Spanish capital, the seat of national government and home to the Spanish monarch. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a region with its own distinct history, culture and language. But Mourinho has provided another incendiary ingredient and, although he might have a case to argue about the sending off of Pepe, it was the fourth time in the last four games against Barca that Madrid have been reduced to 10 men. Conspiracy? Or a lack of discipline? Or intimidatory tackling? Certainly

Pepe, a centre-half whom Mourinho plays as a mideld enforcer could have been sent off in either of the previous two matches with Barca and last night his lunge at Dani Alves was high and studs-rst. Of course the whole drama was all played out in a pulsating atmosphere in one of the games great theatres with the ve tiers of seats predominantly lled with home fans roaring their approval of Mourinho by stealing a comment by Guardiola and turning it into a chant. The Barca coach had said Mourinho was the f***ing boss of media conferences, so that was what Madrid fans called him, although they meant it as a compliment. The half-time skirmishing came soon after an explosion of anger by Barcelona. Was it real, or was it faux fury? It was the sort of night when it was impossible to tell. Pedro went down off the ball after an innocent

collision with Reals Alvaro Arbeloa and hammed up the impact sufciently to prompt pushing and shoving. Then as the teams left the eld minutes later, tempers ared again. Players and back-room staff traded insults and more shoves and Barca sub goalkeeper Jose Pinto was red-carded in the tunnel for punching Madrid match delegate Miguel-Angel Porlan Chendo. Mourinho said he did not see it. And he will have to watch the second leg on TV. He is certain to be banned from any contact with his players. Perhaps they will ask themselves Why?
REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Casillas; Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Albiol, Marcelo; Alonso, Pepe, Diarra; Ozil (Adebayor 46), Ronaldo, Di Maria. Booked: Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Adebayor. Sent off: Pepe 61.

AT EACH OTHERS THROAT: Barcelonas substitute keeper, Jose Pinto, is sent off after a half-time brawl while, above, Real boss Jose Mourinho, banished to the stands, hands a note to his bench
Obviously the hundreds of millions around the globe who tuned in to feast on part four of Spains Clasico box-set did not expect to be presented with that bit from A Question of Sport where celebrities hide their faces, flirt with the camera and Sue Barker simpers: Did you guess who it was? But that is what we got. And for the hedonists who simply wanted football played fantasy style, all touch, flair and artistry, perhaps it was a disappointment. And there was no David Coleman, no Willie Carson, no Ally McCoist However, for those who have been drawn into the battle of minds between Barcelonas cerebral and saturnine Pep Guardiola and the Torquemada of La Liga, Jose Special One Mourinho, it was both fascinating and hilarious. For a large part of the first half it was perfectly evident that Guardiola had said to his lads: OK boys, the last two games have shown that Madrid dont want the ball much and we have made all the running so lets disguise ourselves as them! So it was. Madrid waited in their own half like a shy 14-year-old boy at his first school disco, hugging the wall and waiting for action, while the girls, Barcelona, danced their own dance way, way back in their own part of the disco. For a long while Madrid were looking at Sue Barker and scratching their heads. Not a clue whats going on, Sue is it Muhammad Ali? On which point they were, unfortunately, correct. The more Barcelona eschewed their normal tactic of attacking, flooding forward and using the ball creatively at all times, the angrier the crowd got and the more frustrated Mourinhos

COMMENT
befuddled boys became. Up in the Gods of this amazing, cavernous stadium the visiting Catalans loved it. They adored it. When it comes to La Liga, either the ticket policy is Scrooge-like or the Barca fans have an attack of the vapours. You might, if you are lucky, see two or three hundred of them. This time, because Champions League rules dictate that the home club must sell a healthy percentage of the tickets to visiting fans, the turnout was boisterous. Everyone knows that the infamous Camp Nou hymn ends with a massive chant Barca, Barca, BAAARCA but the other lyrics are lesser sung by foreigners, less understood. They include a valiant roar which the fans supplied, a proud flag flying, which there was, and it builds to we have a name that everyone knows, Barca, Barca, BARCA. But the word would have been confused last night. Gone was the sexy, seductive football and in was the win-at-almost-anycost mentality. Javier Mascherano, fired in Argentina and given a steel edge on Merseyside, dispensed summary justice. Dani Alves sought opportunities to join him and to sniff the grass.

know this is happening. Football should be played with rules that are the same for everyone. Sometimes I feel disgusted living in this world and earning my living in this world. Mourinho conceded Real are as good as out. He said: Its mission impossible. Barca have to reach the final and they will. Thats it. Perhaps they could win on merit. Why did the referee [Wolfgang Stark] do this? He wont answer because now he is going home. Barca coach Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn into a war of words. Asked what he thought of Mourinhos remarks, he said: Nothing. Nothing.

were content to play catch the ball if you can and stroke it about at the back, tempting frustration and aggression and waiting for the kind of breakaway which both Xavi and David Villa nearly finished off. Perhaps what did not change, what was recognisable, was the customary red card. Jaunty Jose has his supporters, me among them. He is clever, fun, vibrant and a winner. But the fact that in every game this season his side has had a player sent off against Barcelona, by four different referees, signifies something isnt right. The Question of Sport panels would have spotted him all right. As big, lumbering, destructive Pepe trundled off, Mourinho turned to his former friend and pupil Guardiola and ironically applauded. Well done, Pep, he was saying. Another one of mine bites the dust. And then Lionel Messi made them pay with his two goals. But whatever Mourinho argues, this was a game of smarts. A rope a dope. And just like Ali managed all those years ago against all odds. The one with the favourite tag, the one with the big punch ran out of steam, got enraged and ended up with the points judge saying: I think the challenger has this one. Guardiola roped a dope last night. But who would have thought that the Special One would fall for it?

JOSE MOURINHO produced an outrageous conspiracy theory last night as Real Madrid suffered a crushing Champions League defeat by Barcelona in an explosive match. After losing the rst leg of the semi-nal 2-0 at the Bernabeu to two late goals from Lionel Messi, Mourinho asked whether UEFA are involved in giving Barcelona power over referees or whether they get special treatment because they have Unicef on their shirts instead of sponsorship.
