The Conservative Party 
should enter the next general 
election with a ‘‘balanced 
ticket” to offset Mrs Maigaiet 
Thatcher’s growing electoral 
liabilities and to combat the 
formidable threat posed by Mr 
Neil Kinnock and the Labour 
Party, Mr John Biffen, Leader 
of the Commons, said 
yesterday. ■ 

His typically frank com- 
ments, which came in the 
wake of last week's disastrous 
election results for the Gov- 
ernment, immediately 
sparked off renewed specula- 
tion over who will succeed 
Mrs Thatcher as leader of the 
party and the future' of Mr 
Norman Tebbit. the increas- 
ingly criticized party 
chairman. 

Mr Biffen, who is the 
nearest thing to the Govern- 
ment guru, said that if the 
Conservatives won the next 
election nobody seriously be- 
lieved Mrs Thatcher would 
remain Prime Minister until 
the end or the next parliament 

“So therefore there is noth- 
ing extraordinary about the 
balanced ticket of the Prime 
Minister and some of the most 
powerful in the Conservative 
Party, one of whom probably 
would become Prime Minister, 
in due course, being represent- 
ed as a team. 

“There is nothing-extraordi- 
nary about presenting a team 
based upon experience and 
based upon a spread of views 
as being something which will 


be appealing to the public and 
which will secure their trust.”

The Norweigan krone has 
fluctuated wildly on interna- 
tional exchange markets dur- 
ing the past weeks, since the 
collapse of the previous Con- 
servative coalition govern- 
ment began to look inevitable. 
It has required government 
intervention at times. 

The Prime Minister's an- 
nouncement followed a day of 
crisis meetings with Mr Gun- 
nar Bergs, the Finance Minis- 
ter, and Mr Hermud Skan- 
land, the Governor of the 
Central Bank. 

The devaluation, which 
could only have been taken 
after consultation with Nor- 
way’s Scandinavian trading 
partners, prompted immedi- 
ate comparisons with the 16 
per cent devaluation of the 
Sweetish krone in 1982 when 
Mrs Brundtland’s friend, the 
late Mr dof Palme, took over 
as Social Democratic Prime 
Minister there.

vinced that a ban on juries in 
selected cases, as recommend- 
ed in tile Roskill report earlier 
this year, would not only stir 
up controversy but also be 
unnecessary. 

Instead, ministers are ex- 
pected to favour Lord Ros- 
kxlPs proposals for simplifying 
the procedures for bringing 
fraud cases to trial, with 
emphasis on pre-trial review. 

The final proposals will 
almost certainly be included 
in a proposed Criminal Justice 
Bill. 

A ministerial working party 
is examining the possibility of 
creating a unified body to 
investigate fraud.

It was die first public admis- 
sion here that the accident 
posed, even the theoretical 
danger of a meltdown, which 
had been causing increasing 
concern to nuclear experts in 
the West, alerted by the Soviet 
decision to start pouring large 
quantities of concrete into the 
floor of the damaged building.

products, and Yugoslavia was 
added to the list of countries.

however, the Twelve re-

Crime Reporter 

A “supergrass" is to be 
released from an Ulster prison 
after two years of a 14-year 
sentence, despite being called 
a' liar .by a judge after the 
acquittal of 20 people -last 
year. 

Yesterday the Northern Ire- 
land office confirmed that Mr 
Tom King, the Secretary of 
State, had recommended the 
exercise of royal prerogative to 
remit part of William 
“Budgie Allen’s sentence. Al- 
len, a “loyalist", was given 14 
years for attempted murder in 
April 1984 and could not have 
expected to be released for 


good behaviour before 1991. 

He is likely to leave prison 
under heavy security to start a 
new life with a fesh identity. 
His performance in court 
threw doubt on the 
“supergrass” system in Ulster. 

At the age of 22 Allen 
'pleaded guilty to offences 
including attempted murder, 
conspiracy to murder and 
possession of firerams and 
bombs. He was said -to have 
been the commander of the 
junior wing of the banned 
Ulster Volunteer Force. 

Three months after his 
jailing he gave evidence at the 
committal of 47 men and 
women be had implicated in 
terrorist activities. Last year 


20 of them were acquitted 
after a judge decided that 
Allen was “unworthy of 
belier. 

Mr Jusice Higgins said .Al- 
len had repeatedly lied under 
oath. He had hoped to find 
favour with those in authority 
to obtain early release and 
start a new life outside North- 
ern Ireland. 

Five men were convicted at ! 
the trial because they had 
made statements admitting 
.the chaises- Two others had 
pleaded guilty at earlier trials. 
Crown counsel said the re- 
maining 20 would have no 
case offered against them 
where the only evidence was 
from Allen.

Mr Velikhov's statement 
did not make it clear whether 
the leak of radiation had 
finally halted, but said that the 
clean-up operation was 09 *

experiments and measure-

He added that builders

of“burying il"

with the terse official an-

that were permitted at the

Syria yesterday expelled 
three British diplomats from 
Damascus in retaliation for 
Britain’s decision to order 
three Syrian diplomats to 
leave ibis country by foe end 
of the week for alleged in- 
volvement in a recent series of 
terrorist incidents. 

As the tit-for-tat expulsions 
were being announced by 
Damascus, it was learnt that 
Scotland Yard was investigate 
I ing possible links between 
other Arab embassies in Lon- 
don and terrorist 
organizations. 

The activities of Arab diplo- 
mats, particularly those from 
radical states which support 
Palestinian extremist organi- 
zations. have been under scru- 
tiny since last month’s 
attempt to plant a bomb on an 
El Al airliner at Heathrow 
airport. 

However, a British official 
said yesterday that he was not 
aware of any plans to take 
action against any other Arab 
diplomat. 

. A Foreign Office spokes- 
man said Syria's decision to 
expel three of the nine diplo- 
mats attached to the British 
Embassy in Damascus was 
“quite unjustified". 

“We are not in the itt-for-tat 
game. We have expelled Syri- 
ans because they were alleged- 
ly involved in terrorist 
activities. That, as far as we 
are concerned, is the end of 
the story." 

The three Britons are Colo-

and Mr .Andrew Balfour, the

The British Foreign Office 
decided to expel the three 
Syrians after the Syrian Am- 
bassador refused to waive 
diplomatic immunity so that 
they could be questioned by 
Scotland Yard in connection 
with the El Al incident 

Whitehall sources said the 
men were suspected of being 
involved in other terrorist 
activities in addition to the 
Heathrow incident “They 


were up to their necks in it” 
one official said.

Mr Loutof Allah Haydar,

waive the diplomats' immuni- 
ty so they could be questioned. 

He returned on Monday 
and said Damascus had re- 
fused the request However, 
he offered to “co-operate" by 
allowing the men to be ques-

its mind. 

Mr Haydar insisted, 
throughout this diplomatic

were innocent.

Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
State for Northern Ireland, 
flew to Washington yesterday 
to try to persuade United 
States Congressmen to back 
Britain in a crackdown against 
the IRA 

Mr King wants to make sine 
that legislation before the 
Senate to ease extraditions 
involving IRA men is passed 
in spite of a strong pro-Irish 
lobby. He will be emphasizing 
Britain's support for the US 
over Libya to help his case. 

He S3id at Heathrow Air- 
port before leaving for three 
days of meetings that be 
would be talking to people "in 
positions of influence, both in 
the Administration and the 
Senate and House of Repre 
seniatives” 

He added: "The summit in 
Tokyo emphasized the impor- 
tance of ensuring terrorists 
couldn't escape punishment 
for their crimes merely by 
skipping over a border and 
escaping out of a particular 
country. 

"This is an important as- 
pect that is understood very 
dearly by the President and 
the Administration. There is 
legislation before the Senate at 
the moment and this is obvi- 
ously something that is of 
great interest to us.” 


Mr King said that he be- 
lieved the relationship be- 
tween the US and Britain, and 
particularly between President 
Reagan and Mrs Thatcher, 
was “very close indeed”. 

He added: “I recently drew 
attention to the ammount of 
support that Libya has given 
over the years to the IRA and 
to the threat that poses — not 
just to Northern Ireland but to 
the republic as veil”. 

Mr King said that the 
American attitude to the IRA 
was changing and that the 
Anglo-Irish agreement had 
helped to bring about that 
change. 

He said: “The attitude of 
the Irish government in show- 
ing their utter rejection of the 
IRA and violence in that form 
is important in helping to get 
Americans to understand.” 

• An international petition 
demanding the release of two 
convicted IRA terrorists fight- 
ing extradition proceedings in 
The Netherlands will be pre- 
sented to the Dutch Justice 
Minister this week. 

The move will come as the 
climax to a four-day campaign 
of films, exhibitions and 
speeches about Ireland and 
the turmoil in Ulster which is 
to be addressed by the civil 
rights campaigner. Miss Ber- 


nadette Devlin, the former 
GLC leader, Mr Ken Living- 
stone. and the West Belfast 
MP And Sinn Fein president, 
Mr Gerry Adams. 


The two convicted men, 
Gerard Kelly and Brendan 
Me Far lane, are Maze prison 
escapers who were recaptured 
ip Amsterdam. 


A

Dutch 

Kelly 


has 
uld be 


ruled 

freed 


because his original offences 
of bombing the Cent 


tral Crimi- 
nal Court and Scotland Yard 
were political crimes. 

The Minister of Justice win 
decide whether to follow the 
judge's decision. The final 
verdict is expected in mid- 
July. 

The court has said that 
McFarlane, who was sent to 
the Maze for bombing a bar in 
Belfast, should be extradited 
because he had failed to prove 
that the crime was politically 
motivated. An appeal is 
pending. 

The petition dernanc 
their release has been 
by European lawyers and i 
experts and will be presented 
to the press next Friday by a 
representative of the French 
organization Juristes pour 
l’lrelande.

As in many other areas of 
life. Northern Ireland remains 
a place apart from the rest of 
the Great Britain over the 
issue of dog licences. 

While on the mainland dog 
lovers need only pay 37p for a 
licence since 1983, it has cost 
£5 in the province. 

New legislation for North- 
ern Ireland was introduced 
almost three years ago in the 
face of growing pressure from 
the large and vociferous form- 
ing community, who were 
alarmed at sheep worrying. 
Local councillors were also 
worried about the fouling of 
pavements and concerned at 
the number of road traffic 
accidents caused by stray 


Hopes rising for 
peace in schools 


By Michael McCarthy 

Two steps towards a final 
settlement of the long-running 
teachers* pay dispute and its 
disruption of school life are 
due to be taken this week. 

First, the executive of the 
largest teachers' union, the 
National Union of Teachers, 
meets today to ratify the 
decision reached during Fri- 
day's meeting of the Burnham 
committee to call off industri- 
al action in return for an 
interim 1986 pay award of 
5.5 per cent, or about £10 a 
week. 

Secondly, the NUT will 
then join the other five teach- 
ing unions in a comprehensive 
series of talks about future pay 
and conditions now going on 
under the auspices ofAcas. 

If agreements do emerge 
from the talks, which cover 
grievances behind the dispute 
from salary structure to 
“voluntary” duties such ^ as 
supervision and covering for 
absent colleagues, and if the 
Government is eventually 
prepared to provide the neces- 
sary finance, then an end will 
be in sight to the struggle 
which has gone on for 15 
months. 

The talks are expected to 
last for several weeks. 

The NUT. the most mili- 
tant union which represents 
nearly half the 410,000 stale 
school teachers in England 
and Wales, had been excluded 
from the Acas discussions for 
refusing to call off action after 
the 1983 pay deal, worth 


8.5 per cent, was reached in 
February. 

It had planned a further 
series of strikes in schools 
from this week. 

Behind the union's derision 
to return to the negotiating 
table was the realization that it 
was being excluded from poli- 
cy' decisions likely to affect the 
teaching profession for per- 
haps the next TO years. 

Both the employers — the 
local authorities — and the 
teachers' organizations are 
freshly optimistic about the 
outcome of the talks after 
Friday's Burnham committee 
deaL 

The NUT. in agreeing to 
suspend its industrial action, 
joined with the other five 
unions in giving a pledge of “a 
return to peace and calm in 
the schools". 

The executive of the union 
may well decide at. today's, 
meeting to rescind its instruc- 
tion to its members to “with- 
draw goodwill". 

The immediate threat of 
further strikes is over, howev- 
er, as ratification of Friday's 
deal by the NUT executive is 
considered a formality. 

The teachers’ long-term aim 
is a return to the pay parities 
with other professions first 
recognized by the Houghton 
report in the mid-seventies, 
and it was calculated at the 
start of their campaign last 
year that an increase of 34 per- 
cent would be necessary to 
achieve that 


Education 
in decline, 
Tory says 


legislation also made it 
a statutory obligation for the 
province's 26 district councils 
to employ dog wardens with 
responsibility for dealing with 
strays. 

There are three wardens in 
Belfast but government offi- 
cials and members of the 
Ulster Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Animals 
admit that because of the scale 
of both the problem and the 
districts involved, their effec- 
tiveness is limited. 

Raising the cost of a licence 
has not deterred dog owners 
and licences have doubled 
from around 36,000 at the old 
price to 72,000 in 1985.

East Coast under threat:! 


Lord Young of Graffham, 
Secretary of State for Employ- 
ment, admitted In a television 
interview yesterday that edu- 
cational standards were falling 
and mast be raised as a matter 
of urgency. 

He was appearing on The 
Channel 4 Inquiry, a 90- 
minute investigation on how 
appropriate our education and 
training is to industry, which 
was shown last night. 

On the question of raising 
school standards he sakh “We 
cannot afford to soldier on as 
we are. I get young people 
coming into the Youth Train- 
ing Scheme for whom school is 
an optional extra. YTS is too 
much about remedial educa- 
tion and that's the problem. 
We've got to motivate and 
work young people harder in 
the school system.” 

The programme had coo- 
dacteda poll on education and 
training in which chairmen 
and chief executives from 
Britain's top 1,000 companies 
gave an overwhelming vote of 
no confidence in the perfor- 
mance of schools, and said 
that they w we unimpressed by 
the new two-year YTS. 

Lord Young said: “There 
mnst be a way fo which we can 
reach out into the school 
system itself, Into the local 
education authorities and say: 
‘Come on, let's stop taUdn“g 
about inputs: how much money 
we put into the system. Let's 
for once start talking about 
outputs; what we get out of it'." 


Lives at risk from erosion 

Eastern England is slowly "sinking 
while tide levels in the North Sea are m 


\ are ns- 

ing progressively, posing an ever greater 
risk of serious flooding. The construc- 
tion of the Thames barrier was a 
response to the danger threatening 
London, but the Anglian Water Author- 
ity. which is responsible for the entire 


coastline between the Thames and the 
Humber, is concerned that government 
cuts in expenditure on sea defences are 
jeopardizing fives and property. In the 
first of two articles. John Young, 
Agriculture Correspondent , describes 
two alarming incidents.

likely to mount after the Wert. 
Derbyshire and Ryedale by- 
election results, which have 
boosted Affiance hopes, of 
gaining at least foe balance of

Alliance advisers argue that 
questions about the' relative 
powers of foe prime minister . 
and cabinet secretary over 
other ministers and perma- 
nent secretaries, and foe lack 
of backbench input in day-to- 
day policy, would become 
particularly urgent in a pact, 
or coalition, government. 

The Alliance- approach 
would slop short of a full- 
blown ministerial cabinet sys- 
tem on the French model, for 
fear of iniinudating the career

expected to fink in with plans 


to improve select committee

fieves that fire Cabinet Office -

On January 31 this year Mr 
Mike Wakelin, operations 
manager for the Lincoln divi- 
sion of Anglian Water, was 
alerted to the fact that a 
section of the promenade 
south of the seaside town of 
Mablethorpe had collapsed. 
Although it was a Friday 
afternoon, he was able to 
mobilize a team of engineers 
to work during the weekend. 

They discovered that foe 
sea had scoured its .way under 
the sea wall which supports 
foe promenade, and excavated 
a hole 100 feel long, 50 feet 
wide and seven feet deep. Mr 
Wakelin reckons that without 
emergency repairs the wall 
would have been breached by 
the Monday. 

The potentially disastrous 
effects can be seen by standing 
on the wall and looking inland 
at foe roofs of houses, bunga- 
lows and caravans beneath. 
Mablethorpe, like all the main 
coastal towns of Lincolnshire, 
including Boston and 
Skegness, is below sea level, 
and the consequences of al- 
lowing the muddy waters of 


foe North Sea to pour uncon- 
trollably through a gap in foe 
wall hardly bear thinking 
about 

By an ironic coincidence 
January 31 was foe anniversa- 
ry of the catastrophic floods 
which inundated eastern En- 
gland in 1953. sweeping away 
the dunes which had hitherto 
afforded a natural barrier, and 
necessitating the building of 
mibst of the present concrete 
walls. Butsince then the tides 
running 'north to south along 
the coast have swept away the 
beaches to the point where, as 
in the Mablethorpe incident, 
the sea is able to penetrate 
beneath foe foundations and 
wash away the infill 

Mr Wakelin- estimates that 
some £4 million needs to be 
spent urgently to repair de- 
fences, which have less than a 
yeart useful life But the 
region's total capital spending 
allocation for this year is only 
£2,600,000, foe greater part of 
which is being spent on an 
inland protection scheme for 
Lincoln, scheduled to cost £9 
million eventually. 


“I only wish we could get ds 
worked up about sea defences 
as we are about radioactive 
rain, because the situation is a 
sight more dangerous.'' 

So far all appeals to the 
Ministry of Agriculture for' 
emergency grant aid have 
fallen on deaf ears. "The 
ministry says it is giving it 
uigent consideration, but that 
was three months ago. 

A hundred miles or so south 
easu Jaywjck^ near Clamn- 
on-sea. Essex, faces a similar 
threat. On Good Friday Mr 
Terry Willy, principal opera- 
tions engineer in Anglian’s 
Colchester division, was in- 
formed that part of the sea 
wall faring had been washed 
away. 

In spite of it being a holiday 
weekend, he found a firm, able 
and willing to supply hun-

A challenge to the election 
of Mr Clive Jenkins, leader of 
the white-collar union, 
ASTMS, to foe TUC*s general 
council was ruled out of order 
at foe union's annual confer- 
ence in Bournemouth 
yesterday. 

Mr Jenkins, who has sat on 
the general council for 12 
years, defeated a left-wing 
opponent. Mr Ian Gibson, 
after winning 43,000 votes to 
Mr Gibson’s 1 7.000. 

The challenge yesterday 
came in foe form of an 
emergency motion by the 
union's number two division- 
al council, said by the 
conference’s standing orders 
committee — which runs foe 
meeting — to have been 
correctly submitted. 

The motion argued that the 
decision of foe union’s execu- 
tive to hold a postal ballot to 
elect foe ASTMS/TUC Gener- 
al council representative was 
“unacceptable”. 

According to foe number 
two divisional council, foe 
decision was a flagrant contra- 
diction of rule 24 (16k It 
insisted that the representa- 
tives be elected at foe annual 
conference, as provided for by 
that rule. 

Mr Douglas Hoyle, Labour 
MP for Warrington North, 
and the union's president, 
ruled the motion out of order. 

He told delegates that he 
had taken legal advice: “The 
election was earned out in 


after 


accordance with law 
three legal opinions. 

"Our members made a large 
number of nominations in 
their branches. 

"The election was carried 
out with two candidates and 
more than 60,000 of our 
members participated, which 
.is 10 times more than in our 
previous election. 

"It would also be unlawful 
and if challenged in the courts 
it could result in our not 
having our nominated mem- 
ber on the TUC general 
council.” 

This ruling was upheld by a 
show of bands after it too was 
challenged.

The Criminal Injuries Com- 
pensation Board has awarded 
more than £2.000 damages to 
two men in Derbyshire and 
Nottinghamshire injured dur- 
ing foe national pit strike. 

The breakaway Union of 
Democratic Mineworicers re- 
vealed yesterday that a coach 
driver was awarded £750 for 
eye injuries suffered when a 
brick was thrown through his 
windscreen at Chesterfield. A 
miner from Mansfield who

?sde“ toeafto ' ^ aw to the Thames barrier 


34,000 jobs’ 


Thousands of jobs in foe 
Civil Service would be lost if 
foe Government went ahead' 
with plans to privatize defence 
establishments. Ministry of 
Defence staff meeting in 
Brighton were warned 
yesterday. 


An outdated electro-me- 
chanical control system which 
operates foe £467 million 
Thames barrier wfl] have to be 
replaced because of freq&enl 
breakdowns. 


Mr Brian Sturtevant, secre- 
tary of the ministry section of 
foe Civil and Public Services 
Association, told the meeting 
that 34,000 jobs could go. 


He said that level of job 
losses, 20 per cent ofl 70.000 
jobs in the ministry, would 
lead to enonomic decline in 
143 towns and rural areas. 


"Because foe dozens of 
private companies anxious to 
snap up defence work win tty 
to boost profits by cutting staff 
and cutting corners, we envis- 
age that 34,000 jobs will 
disappear,” he said. 


The Thames Water Author- 
ity said yesterday that the 
control system did not put 
London at risk in the event of a 
flood or tidal surge. 


“We are looking at replac- 
ing the system, but ft is an 
immensely complex esgmeer- 
ing task. It is not a risk and the 


situation is under control,” a 
spokesman said. 

The authority took charge of 
foe flood barrier fire weeks 
, when foe Greater London 
was abolished. Extra 
staff hare had to be on duty 
every time foe barrier is 
operated to deal with possible 
breakdowns. 

The system failed dttrmg the 
official opening in 1984 when a 
gate stopped moving far sever- 
al minutes. One relay failed 
when foe barrier was last used, 
on Boxing Day 1985. 


Two years ago a confidential 
report by British . Brown- 
BovmL the contractors, said 
that "the fafiures were caused 
by contacts in foe relays not 
functioning' properly. The I 
company recommended that 
the barrier should bo replaced 
with a computerized control 
system costing between 
£9)0,000 and £2 infifiodL 
The existing control system,

One of tire commentators 
was tiie farmer Grand Nation- 
al jockey. Lord Trevethfa and 
Oaksey, himself a keen 
player. 

But to emphasize foe broad 
appeal of the game, Granada 

said that players included a 
bricklayer, taxi driver, and a 
farmer. The winner was Mr 
Nigel Aspinafi, aged 39, a 
computer programmer and the 


world-ranked number one 
player. 

The Croquet Association, 
formed hi 1900 hopes that the 
television exposure will lead to 
an increase in interest. There 
are- already some 4,000 play- 
ers in the 130 dabs fa foe 
association, and as Mr Chris 
Hndson, its national develop- 
ment officer, pointed out, it is 
at feast a sport where Britain 
leads, winning the world 
championship in Anstratia 
four years ago. 


The title is about to be 
fought over again when teams 
from Australia and New Zea- 
land arrive fa Britain next 
month for a series of nine test 
matches.

Mr Tebbit, who will today 
start as official, inquest at 
party headquarters into last 
week's dismal election results^ 
will address foe Conservative 
backbench 1922 Committee 
on Thursday. 

The invitation was issued 
last week before foe elections 
took place and it was being 
emphasized by senior Conser- 
vatives last night that the 
meeting will in no Sense be the 
prelude., to a witchhunt but 
rather a>f opportunity for the 
party to take stock and See 
where ft was going. 

Nevertheless there is no 
hiding the concern felt by 
some Conservatives at Mr 
Tebbit's performance. One se- 
nior, minister said fast night 
judgement on hte performance 
would remain suspended for - 
foe tirhe being. 

Mr Tebbit. asked yesterday 
about -his future as party 
chairman, said: “If foe Prime ; 
Minister or the Chief Whip 
said uy me that they wanted 
me to go. why ever not? But I 
do -not think’ that is going to 
arise, i will stay so long as I 
can do a useful job." 

About . his style,- be said: “I 
do not think it. raucous to 
insist cm setting out in front of - 
the electorate v^jai other 


parties' polities are even if 
they choose to conceal them 
or indeed have two or three 
polities which they advocate 
in different parts of the 
country?* 

Meanwhile Mr Malcolm 
Rifkind, Secretary of State for 
Scotland, issued a warning 
that it would be “facile” to 
assume the Conservative Par- 
ly would automatically regain 
the ground lost at Thursday's 
elections in time for the next 
general election. 

“What we have got to do, 
from the Prime Minister ' 
downwards, is to ' fasten to 
those who voted for us at the 
fast general election and who ^ 
are not voting for us now.”

£500m needed to stop 
long traffic queues on 
stm-unflnished M25 


By Michael Baity, Transport Editor 
T 1 * Government faces lulls stretch of the entire motorwa 


of up to £500 million during 
the next 10 years to cope with 
serious overcrowding already 
evident on die M25 motorway 
even before it is finishe d. 

Traffic on the £ 1,000 mil- 
lion London orbital road 
so exceeded ministry forecasts, 
that on the busiest stretches it 
is running at up to 115,000 
vehicles a day compared with 
an expected 75,000. 

This is causing daily queues 
several mites long, and com- 
pares with an average of 
40,000 vehicles on Britain's 
six-lane motorways, and a 
design^ maximum of abont 

The M25 is a six-lane 
motorway throughout its 120- 
roDe length, except for a short 
stretch near Heathrow where 
there are eight lanes, and 
through the Dartford tunnel 
where there are four. 

This has already been 
shown to be a serious under- 
estimate. and substantial wid- 
ening is essential unless the 
motorway is to become a 
massive bottleneck at peak 
times, driving traffic back on 
to the surrounding local roads 
it was intended to relieve, 
experts say. 

Extra lanes are needed 
round the west and north-east 
sides, at a probable cost of 
£420 million in 1986 terms; 
£520 milKon in 1993 values. 

The most urgent needs are; 
Staines to Wistey: The busiest 


where extra lanes are 
to cope with existing 
congestion. ' 

Fortunately, space for extra 
lanes has already been built 
into pan of the section (unlike 
most of the M25) so the cost is 
estimated at a modest £9 
million, plus £5 million to 
upgrade the inadequate 
M3/M25 interchange. 
Dartford tumet Traffic has 
already reached 85,000 vehi- 
cles a day compared with a 
forecast of 60,000, and the 
queues are expected to be 
larger than last summer as 
traffic heads for the channel 
ports. 

Tenders have already been 
sought for a new tunnel or 
bridge that would add four 
more lanes at a cost of about 
£150 million. 

A! to M4: The key A1 to 
Watford section is the last pan 
of the M25 to be built, and 
overcrowding is expected 
from the day it opens this 
autumn. 

Traffic feeding into it from 
the A1 and Ml motorways, 
spurred on by congestion at 
the Dartford tunnel, will pro- 
duce a further traffic surge on 
the already heavily-used west- 
ern side of the motorway. Two 
more lanes down to Heathrow 
and the M4 would cost about 
£130 million. 

Leather bead-Retgate Prob- 
lems with this 716-mile stretch 
delayed its opening last sum- 



mer, and complaints since 
about the quality of its surface 
make eventual re-surfacing 
inevitable. Hie cost will be 
£15 million. 

MJ1-M20: If the Channel 
tunnel goes ahead with die 
M20 as its main route to 
London, extra lanes mil be 
needed to cope with traffic 
growth in the 1990s down the 
east side of the M25 from the 
Ml l Cambridge motorway to 
the M20 south of the Thames. 
Estimated cost £1 15 rafllion. 

Ministers have consistently 
denied the need for widening 
while the M25 was being built, 
and Mr Nicholas Ridley, Sec- 
retary Of Stale for Transport, 
said earlier this year that an 
assessment must await until 
after its first foil year as a 
completed motorway. 

But he acknowledged that 
ministry forecasts had serious- 

S > under-estimated traffic 
ows, and has already bowed 
to pressure for relief of the 
worst bottleneck at Dartford, 
where new lanes are expected 
in about 1992. 

The urgency of the need was 
amply demonstrated during a 
two-hour survey of the busy 
south-west section with an 
M25 traffic officer. Sergeant 
Andy Smith, of Surrey Police, 
one day last week. 

Between 730 and 9.30 in 
the morning peak time on 
Thursday queues extended 
several miles on the M25 and 
the M3 feeding into it 
According to Sgt Smith, the 
problem is exacerbated by 
many drivers not used to 
motorways and who use the 
M25 as a local road (which 
indeed for them it is). 

There were many examples 
of cars being driven too dose 
to the vehicle in front, and 
weaving from one lane to 
another, resulting on average 
in an accident each day. . 

Most are not serious be- 
cause of the density and slow 
speed of the traffic. 

“I dread to think what 
would happen if we had to 
dose our section of the 
motorway,** Sgt Smith said. 

-There are no alternative 
routes. We've been gening 
115,000 vehicles a day at the 
peak, and it wasn't supposed 
to reach that till the 1990s. 

“It's like this every day now. 
What's it going to be like in 15 
years’ time?" 


TUC calls 
for equal 
retirement 
at 60 

The TUC calls today for a 
state retirement age of 60 for 
men and women with no loss 
of pension. 

It also calls for a coherent 
programme of measures lead- 
ing to an overall reduction in 
retirement ages. 

The TUCs views are pub- 
lished in its response to the 
government consultation pa- 
per, Sex Discrimination amt 
Retirement Age. 

Mr Norman Willis, TUC 
general secretary, says: “The 
Government are doing no 
more than the absolute mini- 
mum required to comply with 
the European Court. They 
have not raced up to the real 
issues of better pensions and 
an end to discrimination in 
pension schemes." 

The TUC says that women 
may have to work longer to 
achieve the same level of 
benefit 

The Government’s moves 
to give women the right to 
continue working until the 
same age as men came after 
the successful action taken by 
a Hampshire woman in the 
European Court

Kidney transplant 
study is launched 

By Nicholas Timmins, Soda! Services Correspondent 


A detailed study to establish 
why kidneys for transplant are 
not collected from potential 
donors, and precisely how 
many organs should be avail- 
able in a year for transplanta- 
tion. is being launched by 
Britain's transplant co- 
ordinators. 

The iast study, in 1979, 
estimated that 4,000 patients a 
year suffered brain death in 
intensive care units, which, in 
theory, should mean a poten- 
tial 8,000 kidneys would be 
available annually for trans- 
plantation, if relatives -agreed 
to them being donated. But 
kidney transplants are run- 
ning at only 1,500 a year. 

A pilot study involving 
about a dozen intensive care 
units is to be run by Mrs Celia 
Wight, the transplant co-ordi- 
nator at Addenbtooke's Hos- 
pital in Cambridge. 

Doctors, nurses and others 
will be asked why patients are 
not referred for transplanta- 
tion, and Mrs Wight is hoping 


the Department of Health will 
finance a study involving 
some 50 units 

That study would go back 
over cases' of brain-death to 
try to establish why organs 
were not donated - whether 
the relatives refused, whether 
there were communication 
difficulties with the transplant 
co-ordinators or transplant 
teams, whether the patients 
were : unsuitable because of 
massive infection or cancer, 
whether measures could be 
taken to make it easier for 
doctors and nurses to ap- 
proach relatives. 

Mrs Wight said: "In theory 
less than a quarter of the 
organs that could be available 
for transplantation are being 
offered, but that figure is 
based on a study that is now 
some years out of date. We 
want to try to establish hist 
bow many organs should be 
available and wbai the prob- 
lems are that lead to organs 
being misted.** 


Computer 
link in 
car video 

The first rear seat television 
and video unit for cars in 
Britain is to be launched this 
week 

The 4'6-inch square colour 
television unit, mounted be- 
tween the from seats or on a 
moveable stand, can be used 
to pick up normal television 
transmissions, or linked to tbe 
video recorder. 

The unit will also be con- 
nected to a quadrophonic 
sound system, enabling people 
in tbe front seat to listen to 
music while passengers in the 
rear watch the television with 
headphones. 

The video system, manufac- 
tured by Blaupunkt and ex- 
pected to sell for about £1 .500. 
is the first stage in a series of 
developments linking the vid- 
eo to a computer network. 

Businessmen will soon be 
able to receive information on 
the car telephone which can be 
transmitted u> an in-car com- 
puter and displayed on the 
screen. 


Pubs ‘better 
than hotels* 

There is a superior and 
cheaper alternative to the 
"cold, impersonal rabbit 
hutches" of modern hotel 
chains, according to a new 
guide published today. 

The Campaign for Real Ale 
says in its book. Beer ; Bed and 
Breakfast, that it is "one of 
Britain's best kept secrets" 
that hundreds of public houses 
offer excellent traditional ac- 
commodation and food.

celebrates its twenty-first 
anniversary this week, having 
raised almost £8.5 million and 
with 465 miles of coastline 
under its protection.

Aids^rlea 
for syringe 
exchange 

By Thomson Prentice 

Science Correspondent 

Drug addicts should be 
allowed to exchange used 
syringes for new ones to stop 
the spread of acquired im- 
mune deficiency syndrome 
(Aids), according ton team of 
doctors. 

The doctors, writing in The 
Lancet , said that other British 
cities may soon face problems 
similar to those detected in 
Edinburgh, where more than 
half of intravenous drug abus- 
ers have been infected with the 
.Aids virus. 

The Scottish capital has the 
highest rate of infection in 
Britain among drug abusers, 
largely because of their prac- 
tice of sharing needles. 

The report said that all but 
one of a group of 46 addicts 
who attended a self-referral 
clinic for blood tests and 
advice in the city had told 
doctors that they shared sy- 
ringes- Thirty of the group, 
which had an average age of 
23, showed traces of the 
infection. 

"Sterile needles and sy- 
ringes should be provided, on 
a new-for-old basis, to reduce 
needles-sbariog among intra- 
venous drug abusers, since 
this seems to be a major route 
of transmission of the HTLV- 
III virus.” the doctors said. 

A two-day conference on 
Aids, organized by the Royal 
College of Physicians, was toM 
that almost half of the 300 
Aids patients in Britain had

By KB Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 


The Post Office is to em- 
bark on the first stage of its 
£100 million programme to 
provide services such as the- 
atre and travel tickets, person- 
al hanking and hotel bookings 
ai its high street slurps. 

Counter staff will use com- 
puter terminals linked to one 
of tbe biggest computer net- 
works is Europe, enabling 
them to perform many ofthar 
traditional roles in seconds. 

By the end of tbe summer, 
more than 130 automated 
idler machines will also have 
been installed in selected of- 
fices, linking the National 
Girobank to 24 other financial 
institutions, including build- 
ing societies. Customers wifi 
be able to withdraw cash and 
perforin limited transactions 
using cash cards. 


A spokesman for the Post 
Office said the counter termi- 
nals will mean greater flexibil- 
ity and speed. More services 
will added to tbe 200 already 
provided, including theatre, 
travel and hotel bookings. 

"The need to write cheques 
or complete forms will be cut 
dramatically. Machines win 
enable counter clerks to trans-

Sugar and fat cleared 
in reports on obesity 


Neither animal fat nor sugar 
makes one fat, according to 
two separate scientific reports 
published yesterday. 

Britain's overall fat con- 
sumption, particularly of ani- 
mal fat, is about the same as 
other developed countries, yet 
the incidence of disease is 
higher than in Austria, Den- 
mark and Belgium, which aQ 
eat more fat than Britons do. 
the independent Association 
of Agriculture said. 

“h is a reduction in overall 
calorie intake which is re- 
quired. Hie calories contained 
in fat are no more fattening 


than the calories contained in 
other nutrients, it is only that, 
weight for weight, there are 
more of them,” the associa- 
tion said. 

A report from Glasgow 
University also concluded 
that there was no firm scientif- 
ic evidence to link sugar with 
obesity. Professor John 
Durnin said: "Hie problem is, 
the myth that eating sugar 
leads to obesity has been 
repeated so often that it is now 
taken as feet 

"ft is not true that fat people 
prefer sweet things or that 
sugar is dangerous to health.”

Advice for 
doctors on 
cuts risks 

The Medical Defence Un 
ion, the biggest of tbe organi- 
zations that -insure doctors 
against claims for medical 
negligence, is advising its 
members to write to it and to 
lodge formal warnings with 
health service managers when 
health service spending re- 
strictions threaten patient care 
(Our Social Services Corre- 
spondent writes). 

Tbe onion says in a leading 
article in its jonroal that 
“concern has been expressed 
by many members that the 
imposition of strict butte 
will lead, or has already led, to 
deficiencies in patient care”. 

Necessary economies have 
to be made, the union says, 
and waste must be avoided, 
but “the safety of patients 
should always be the mime 
consideration”. 

“Members are aware of the 
very real threat that they will 
be blamed — and sued — if 
patients suffer harm as a result 
of the economies.” 

The union's council, it says, 
has been provided with exam- 
ples from all- parts of the 
country of reductions in essen- 
tial equipment, in nursing 
services and medical staffing 
and of closures of wards and 
operating theatres. “No region 
appears to have been spared.” 
To reduce the risk to doc- 
tors of being sued if patients 
suffer from economies, the 
defence union says, doctors 
should write to the union and 
inform tbe local general man- 
ager in writing at the time 
economies are made. 

- “If a consultant considers 
that medical or support ser- 
vices are potentially hazard- 
ous he should use his 
judgement to decide whether 
the need for treatment out- 
weighs the risk to the patient. 
He should record tbe reasons 
for his decision in the clinical 
notes.” 

The union adds: “ft seems 
likely thai there are hard times 
ahead for patients whose treat- 
ment may be jeopardized, 
doctors and nurses who may 
be wrongfully accused of negh- 
grace, and administrators 
who have to implement diffi- 
cult policies.”

Government to publish 
its proposals for 
a single family court 




By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


t The Government this week 
publishes its long-awaited pro- 

S s for creating a single 
y court in England and 
- Wales. 

They come against a mount- 
. ing clamour among MPs. 

some pans of the legal profes- 
. si on and the “family rights 1 ' 
lobby for the Government to 
set up such a court to bring 
family disputes within one 
forum, and deal with all 
matters such as divorce, custo- 
dy, maintenance, adoption 
and wardship. 

Last autumn the Family 
- Courts Campaign was 
launched by 100 MPs. indi- 
viduals and organizations, 
and an eariy-day motion ta- 
- bled by Mr Leo Abse, Labour 
. MP for Torfaen, has attracted 
more than 50 names. 

The present system, where 
, family matters are split among 
- . three court systems - the 
magistrates, county courts and 
High Court — is described as 
;* ‘■chaotic*’. 


It is complex, lengthy, cosi- 
ly and confusing; the overlap- 


ping jurisdiction can mean 
cases shuttled back and forth 
. between the different systems. 
- One recent custody case had 
■ six hearings at three levels in 


three months and cost 
£ 20 . 000 . 

A family court would also 
increase specialization by 
judges and registrars who 
make decisions in family mat- 
ters and ensure cases are 
handled by the appropriate 
level of judge. 

The debate goes back to the 
proposal of the Finer commit- 
tee in 1974 and in spite of 
support from several govern- 
ments a family court has never 
been a top political priority. 

Last year the campaign, 
which is supported by magis- 
trates. social workers and 
advice workers, was reviewed 
by the Law Society with 
proposals for a new two-tier 
court which it says would 
redistribute costs, not increase 
them. 

But the Bar does not believe 
radical change is needed to 
check the detects in the sys- 
tem. Nor, as the Law Society 
wants, does it favour laymen 
involved in sitting on large 
numbers of family cases. 

This week's report, two and 
a half years in the making and 
several times delayed because 
of its complexity, comes at a 
time when government deter- 


mination to act is probably at 
its weakest. 

Lord Hailsham of St Mary- 
lebone, the Lord Chancellor, 
came close to radical reform in 


1 983, with proposals to reor- 
ganize the family jurisdiction 


ganrze the tamuy jurisdiction 
of the High Court and county 
court. 

The more radical proposal, 
backed by the Law Society, 
was to mage those courts into 
a family court. 

But the Matrimonial and 
Family Proceedings Act which 
followed went for the more 
modest proposal, favoured by 
the Bar, to improve the distri- 
bution of business between the 
two courts. 

That came into effect last 
week and in the Bar's view 
may remedy the problem of 
cases going to an inappropri- 
ate court. 

Meanwhile, sortie improve- 
ments could be achieved; one 
concern is the way care cases 
are handled. The Bar would 
like to see these removed from 
magistrates, along with other 
complex cases such as contest- 
ed adoption, and placed with a 
circuit jud^e familiar with 
family law or a High Court 
judge.

Irish back divorce, poll says 


A new Irish opinion poll has 
claimed a majority in favour 
of ending the country's consti- 
tutional ban on divorce. 

In a further development 
Sinn Fein, political wing of the 
IRA. said it would endorse a 
referendum attempt to change 
the law and permit divorce for 
the first time. 

The survey-, published in 
yesterday's Sunday Press in 


Dublin, and carried out by 
Research Surveys of Ireland, 
indicated that 49 per cent of 
those questioned supported 
scrapping the written Irish 
constitutional divorce barrier, 
with 35 per cent against and 
13 per cent undecided. 

After eliminating the “don't 
knows" 58 per cent were for 
the move and 42 per cent 
against. A separate survey last 


week had 57 per cent backing 
the introduction of divorce 
and the figures are seen in 
Dublin as part of growing 
opinion behind altering the 
50-year-old constitution. 

The Dail is expected to 
rubber-stamp legislation this 
week for a nationwide poll 
next month.

Talks on 
manning 
in prisons 


By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

A formula to settle the 
immediate difference between 
prison officers and manage- 
ment will be put to the test at a ; 
meeting between the two sides 
today. 

Tte question is whether it 
will also be accep tab le to the 
general membership of the 
association both as r e prese n t- 
ed at the annual co n fere nc e or 
through the ballot box. 

The sensitivity of tire sub- 
ject is such that tire leadership 
of tire Prison Officers’ Associ- 
ation would, uncharacteristi- 
cally. not go on foe record 
about tire issues confronting it 
yesterday. 

But the aim is to get tire 
immediate dispute over man- 
ning settled before the annual 
conference later this month. 
The difference between tire 
two sides was whether foe 
local manning levels should be 
settled by negotiations — the 
officers’ wish - or discussion 
and consultation as manage- 
ment decree, with the gover- 
nor in foe end deciding. 

The reduction of the work- 
ing week, expected by officers* 
to be from 40 to 39 hours, has 
yet to be dealt with. 

But staff speculated that to 
save the extra hour, manage- 
ment would be tempted to 
lock up earlier some prisoners 
not so far suffering shorter 
periods of association with 
each other out of their cells:

frozen foods continual. 

In Munich on Saturday 
1 5.000 demonstrators brought 
traffic to a standstill for an 
hour. There were demonstra- 
tions in Dusseldorfand Hesse, 
and about 100 Westphalian 
fanners blocked roads to a 
reactor at Hanun-Uemrop 
with tractors. . 

At Slade, near Hamburg,

up a 600ft power mast near a 
nuclear station for the third 
day yesterday. They said they 
would stay there until the 
plant was shut down. . 

In Lower Saxony about 
6,000 people protested against 
a planned nuclear waste dump 
at Gorleben. Some set up 
road-blocks and lit fires. Po- 
lice used tear gas and “pepper 
fog" to disperse them.

about its country's unsatisfac-

measures on April 2, four 
weeks before the Chernobyl

West German press reports 
said the movement had sent a 
10- page paper to Herr Erich 
Honecket, the East German 
leader, and the official East 
German Communist Party 
newspaper, Neues Deutsch- 
land, calling for a “construct-

government and citizens. 

The movement complained 
that East Germany held the 
top position in Europe for air' 
and water pollution and de- 
struction of the earth. 


China admits nuclear deaths 


In the wake of foe

Chinese military official has 
admitted that some deaths

“Facts are facts," said Mr 
Qian Xuesen, consultant for 
the national defence commit- 
tee of foe scientific and tech-

deaths have occurred, but 
generally China has paid great 
attention to possible acci- 
dents. No large disasters have 
happened."

The fight against terrorism 

Ex-intelligence chief 
accuses Italy of 
protecting Gadaffi 






•&P

mm 


Italian governments have 
.'protected Colonel Gadaffi 
against his enemies and pro- 
vided him with arms, accord- 
> ing to Genera] Ambrogio 
Viviani, former head of the 
Military Counter-Intelligence 
Service. 

~ They had also secretly re- 
turned terrorists to Libya in 
"the hope of remaining free of 
terrorist attacks. 

- General Viviani, aged 57, 
directed the military secret 

-Service from 1970 to 1974. He 
r says in an interview to be 

- published by the news maga- 

■ zine Panorama today that he 
was under instructions to 

. place the highest priority on 

■ protecting Italy's economic 
interests in Libya, particularly 
oQ interests. 


From Peter Nichols, Rome 

The reliability of the general 
is undermined by the fra that 
bis name was found among 
those in the Lists of the banned 
Masonic lodge “Propaganda 
2”. which ls regarded as 
having had subversive aims. 
But he is supposed to have 
been highly regarded in Nalo 

titties. 

He says: “We helped the 
Libyan leader to defeat ene- 
mies of his regime. We sup- 
plied him with arms, organ- 
ized his intelligence service 
and gave him advisers to deal 
with the modernization of his 
armed forces." 

He says that an attempt to 
overthrow Colonel Gadani in 
1970 failed because the I talian 
secret service informal the 
Colonel in advance of the 




Madrid protests to 
Libya on envoys 


projected landing of enemy 
Libyan forces. “Gadaffi's 
troops were waiting for the 
conspirators and all of them 
were taken.” 

Five Libyans who attempt- 
ed to shoot down an El AI 
aircraft with a ground-to-air 
missile near Rome airport 
were arrested and then sent 
back to Libya in an aircraft 
which blew up a few days later 
above Venice, 

Its destruction was the work 
of the Israeli Secret Service 
and intended as a warning to 
the Italians, according to the 
general 

The irony is that the Prime 
Minister at the time was Aldo 
Mono, who was killed by 
Italian terrorists.

Seven more die in black townships 


From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 


From Harr)*DebeIias, Madrid 
The Spanish Ambassador in ]0 suspected members of the 
rrpoli has been instructed to gang had been arrested. Police 
esent a note to the Libyan said a Portuguese and a 


Tripoli has been instructed to 
- present a note to the Libyan 
Government protesting that 
Libyan diplomats have been 
involved with extremists in 
Spain, the Prime Minister's 
office confirmed here yes- 
terday. 

A spokesman said on na- 
tional radio that the protest 
would not refer specifically to 
alleged Libyan financing of an 
international right-wing ter- 
rorist gang. The Government 
would await judicial evaluation 
of evidence in that case before 
taking farther diplomatic 
action. 

The Interior Ministry said 


said a Portuguese and a 
Spaniard were the first to be 
arrested as they were allegedly 
about to place a bomb at the 
Bank of America office in 
Madrid on May 2. 

Police accused the same two 
men of planting a bomb which 
blew up an Air France office in 
Lisbon last month. 

The Interior Alinistry al- 
leged that the two men gave 
evidence indicating that they 
were promised 570,000, to be 
paid by a Libyan Embassy 
staff member in Madrid, for 
the two attacks. 


Peres sees 
sanctions 
as answer 

Jerusalem — Israel will do 
all that is necessary to put a 
stop to Syria's involvement in 
international terrorism, Mr 
Shimon Peres, the Prime Min- 
■ ister. told the Cabinet yester- 
day (Tan Murray writes). At 
the same time, he insis ted that 
Israel would do everything it 
could to avoid a war. 

.Mr Peres suggested that 
diplomatic ana economic* 
measures could be used 
against terrorism. Economic ; 
sanctions against Syria would 
be particularly effective, it is 
thought here, because it is 
fating an economic crisis 
which is already endangering 
the rule of President Assad. 


At least seven people died 
over the weekend in contin ting 
Bares t in South Africa's black 
townships, as large numbers of 
troops and pofice sealed off the 
Alexandra ghetto, nortit-easf- 
ern Johannesburg, con- 
ducted house-to-house 
searches. 

The number of people ItiBed 
in the unrest that has raged 
unaba t ed in black areas since 
September 1984 reached 1,559 
(almost all of them blacks) at 
the mid of last month, accord- 
ing to the South African 
Institute of Race Relations, an 
independent body that keeps a 
tally based on newspaper and 
ponce reports. 

Of the deaths, 531 wore 
! recorded in the first four 
months of this year, an aver- 
age of more than 130 a month, 
and a much higher incidence 
than in 1985. 

On Saturday, the mayor of a 
Mack township outside Port 


Alfred, in tire Eastern Cape, 
shot and kilted one of a group 
of men who allegedly invaded 
his home and stabbed him 
three times. The charred body 
of another man was lata found 
elsewhere in the township. 

Th e body of another person 
burnt to death was found in a 
Made area near Port Kfea .

Yesterday a black bus driver 
was burnt to death in his 
vehicle by a mob in Gognletu, 
near Cape Town. 

At least three blacks were 
shot dead by administration 
officials in Soweto, outside 


Johannesburg, when a mob of 
youths allegedly stoned their 
vehicle. 

Early on Saturday, 1,600 
police and soldiers in troop 
carriers moved into Alexan- 
dra, a shanty town of 190,000 
inhabitants which is unusual 
in being surrounded by well- 
to-do white snburbs. Other 
black suburbs were caned and 
re-developed for while occupa-

Thar former Mack resi-

many to Soweto. Alexandra 
was threatened with a s imilar

From Nefi KeQy 
Bangkok 

King Bhumibol of Thailand 
paid tribute yesterday to a 
'man who was accused almost 
40 years ago of comp&rity in 
the murder of the ruling 
monarch. King Ananda, the 
present King's elder brother. 

King Bhumibol presented 
robes to Buddhist monks par- 
ticipating in funeral riles for 
the former statesman, Pridi 
Phanomyong, who died in 
exile in Paris three years ago. 

As they joined in the funeral 
ceremony, some of his old 
associates said the King's 
gesture was a great honour for 
Mr Pridi and was probably 
also an appeal for the healing 
of old wounds. 

Mr Pridi is honoured by 
many Thais as the founding 
father of democracy in their 
country and as the leader of 
the anti-Japanese resistance 
during the Second World War. 


East Berlin (Renter) — A 
former top adviser to Herr 
Willi Stoph, the East Ge rman

ical system. 

Professor '• Hermann von 
Ber& aged S3, m the mid- 
1970s an economic aide to 
Herr Stoph and a specialist in 
East-West economic co-opera- 
tion, said he had been given 
final permission to leave East 
Germany in March. 

Hiscase was one of the most 
! sensitive and senior in a string 
of emigrations among Quali- 
fied professional people. 

Professor von Berg said he 
had arrived in Cologne, West 
Germany, by tram early yes- 
terday morning. 

He applied to leave in 
August 1985, after many, 
dashes with colleagues. 

He leaves his wife and two 
sons behind in East Germany.

The Princess of Wales was 
granted her wish to see tradi-

tling yesterday.

face wifl two of the mountain- 
ous men after their rw itfyt she 
Wished at the sight of their 
30.8 and 36.7 stone frames. 

They had covered their brief

questions Of Onoknni, a high- 
ranking wrestler who had just 

won Ms boot before a crowd of 
10,000, while the royal couple 
watched from the box used by 
the Japanese imperial fanifiyn 
She told Onoknni and 
Konisluki, the American Sa- 
moan-born wrestler who is oik 
of two foreigners at the top in 
sumo, that the wrestling had 
“made the trip" for her and 
the Prince of Wales. 

The two grapplers were 
equally impressed with the 
Princess; “She’s beautiful," 
KonishOd said. "Bat if she 
were my wife I*d want her to 
pnt on some more weight" 

■ He said that at first he was 
more nervous than before a 
bout “I thought Td be holding 
back, bet it was okay;" 

Outside- the stadium thou- 
sands were wafting to see the 
ample, the first chance ordi- 
nary people had had to see the 

“superstar Princess", as the 
Japanese media have been 
calling her. 

More than 100400 lined the

Six or the seven field com- 
manders in Sertor Eden 
Pastora's anti-Sandinisia 
Democratic Revolutionary 
Alliance (Arde) have defected 
to a nval Contra organization. 

Contra, sources said the 
move was made official at a 
signing ceremony on Friday 
attended by Sehor Pastora's 
commanders and Seiior Fer- 
rando “H Negro" Chamorro, 
chief .of a small group aligned 
with the Nicaraguan Demo- 
cratic Force (FDN), ihe larg- 
est, LiS-backed, Contra group, 
based in Honduras. 

As a result, most of Seiior 
Pastora’s estimated 3.000 
guerrillas are expected to ac- 
cept Senior Chamorro as their 
commander, thereby opening 
a new FDN from in southern 
Nicaragua. 

The agreement came after 
secret talks between the com- 
manders and FDN and CIA 
representatives. 

Ironically, the signing cere- 
mony. in a house in a San Jose 
suburb, came on the first day 
in office of Costa Rica's new 
President. Dr Oscar Arias, 
who has vowed to stop 
Contras from operating here. 

Sehor Karol Prado, a 
spokesman for Sehor Pastora, 
said the rebel leader was inside 
Nicaragua with about 300 
toyal troops. He said Sehor 
Pastora understood that his 
commanders were lured into 
the new alliance with prom- 
ises of sufficient supplies, bin 
he condemned “the manipula- 
tions of the CIA" which led to 
the desertions. 

Sehor Pastora has been at 
odds with the US. and has not 
received supplies from it be- 
cause of his refusal to unite 
with die FDN. US aid was 
stopped two years ago after an 
assassination attempt against 
Sehor Pastora which, evidence 
indicates, was engineered bv 
the CIA and the FDN 


Mr Jackie Presser. bead of 
the scandal-ridden Teamsters 
Union, may be indicted soon 
on corruption charges. The 
case raises broader questions 
about a possible attempt by 
the Federal Bureau of Investi- 
gation to protect him from 
prosecution. 

The investigation of Mr 
Presser was reopened earlier 
this year, after it had mysteri- 
ously been dropped by the FBI 
last year. 

The FBr had spent 32 
months in exhaustive probing 
or his alleged links with orga- 
nized crime, and allegations 
mat he employed people who 
never did any work for the 
unions. 

Mr Presser’s alleged crimes 
may have been approved by 
one arm of the FBI. as part of a 
broader investigation into or- 
pnized crime, without ihe 
^edge of other sections of 
the FBI, which were focusing 
on the Teamsters. 

Justice Department officials 
said the case was reopened 
because FBI agents might 


have committed penury to 
protect Mr Presser. Law en- 
forcement officials have de- 
scribed him as a valuable 
informer about oiganizcd 
crime. 

A federal grand jury jn 
Cleveland could act against 
Mr Presser as early as this 
week, according to Justice 
Department officials. Another 
, grand jury in Washington- Has 
been trying to determine 
whether FBI agents lied about 
their dealings with Mr Presser. 

Senate investigators re- 
leased a report on Friday 
alleging that the FBI had 
hampered FBI investigators 
studying allegations that-, Mr 
Presser had authorized pay- 
ments of more than $700,000 
(£460,000) to union employ- 
ees who did no work. 

The Senate government 'a£ 
fairs investigations sub-com- 
mittee said the FBI may have 
repeatedly misled other gov- 
ernment investigators about 
their alleged use of Mr Presser 
inform 


as an informer.

New Orleans (AFP) - Ed- 
win Edwards, three-times 
Governor of Iimkiami and one 
of the most influential and 
colourful characters on the 
state political scene for the 
past 30 years, walked out of 
court a free man this weekend. 

Fast Eddy, as he is familiar- 
ly known, was acquitted on all 
the charges against him, tang- 
ing from fraud to racketeering 
and obstructing the course of 
justice. 

The jury took 12 hours to 
reach its verdict acquitting 
.Mr Edwards, his brother Mar- 
ion and three associates, of 
.nsing .his. influence to get 
building contracts granted for 
hospitals and private clinics in 
which they had an interest 
Mr Edwards was accused of 
pocketing $2 million (£13 
million). 

Saturday’s verdict came at 
the end of a second trial 
lasting four weeks. The first 
tnal which lasted three 
months, ended last December 
with the jury Inclined towards 
acquittal but nnable to reach a 
majority verdict after a week of 
deliberations. 

One juror said on Saturday 


that the prosecution did not 
present enough concrete evi- 
dence. 

After the verdict, Mr Ed- 
wards, who is a Democrat, 
accused Mr John Volz, the 
prosecutor and a Republican 
appointee, of having turned 
the trial into a political plat- 
form to harass the state's 
Democratic Government 

Governor from 1971 to 1979 
and re-elected for a third term 
m 1983, the Cqjun King, as be 
is also known, has said that 
the only thing which conld 
cheat him of victory would be 
to be found in bed with a 
girl or a live boy. A poker 
player and womanizer, his 
supporters consider him the 
best tonic against boredom. 

Mr Edwards is the most 
popular politician in Louisiana 
since Huey Long, who was 

assassinated in 1935 as he was 
preparing to contest the presi- 
dency against Franklin D. 
Roosevelt He seems to enjoy 
the total indulgence of his 
electorate, even over alleged 
gambling debts of S2 million 
nm up at the casinos in 
Nevada, on which the two 
trials hinged.

Is cash redistribution helping our health service? Nicholas Timmins begins a three-part series with a look at London 

Emergency case for the capital 


p

£ 

□

£J 


London's hos- 
pitals are in cri- 
sis. Early this 
year wo of ihe 
big leaching 
hospitals. Uni- 
versity College 
Hospital and 
the Middlesex, closed to all but 
emergency cases for a. month over 
Oiristmas. shut four wards for 
four months and cut operations by 
between 25 and 50 per cent to 
avert a cash ‘crisis. 

At Guy's Hospital nearly' 2UU 
beds are closed. Waiting-lists in 
general surgery and medicine hav e 
risen by about half in three years. 
Most weeks at Guy's and Lewi- 
sham hospitals, someone who has 
waited perhaps months often finds 
his admission cancelled on the day 
because there is nowhere to put 
him. On some wards, some days, 
beds have more than one patient. 
A recuperating patient is lurfed 
out for the day to allow another 
one in. so that wards are running 
at over 100 per cent occupancy, a 
process known as "hoi-bedding". 

The tale is told of the patient 
who asked a passing surgeon for a 
bed bottle. He was told he was tit 
enough to walk to the toilet. "No 
Tear", said the patient, “if I do that 
there'll be someone else in this bed 
b\ the lime I get back." 

' At St Thomas's, where £2.5 mil- 
lion has to be saved this year, cuts 
are being considered that would 
remove several hundred special- 
ized cases from the hospital's 
workload, cutting back on heart 
and plastic surgery operations, 
and reducing the number of 
cardiology patients. In addition 
the hospital would close to routine 
surgery in August, reducing ad- 
missions by 1.000 and increasing 
surgery waiting lists by 17 per 
cent. 

To a Londoner the tale of the 
health service looks like cuts, 
more cuts and worse to come. The 
situation is in tact more complex. 
But the budgets of London's 
hospitals - and particularly its 
dozen teaching hospitals — are 
under growing pressure in many 
different ways: national realloca- 
tion. regional reallocation, priority 
services and pressure on Universi- 
ty Grams Com mi nee and Medical 
Research Council spending. 

Under the formula for redistrib- 
uting spending from the relatively 
rich parts of the NHS to the poorer 
areas. London's hospitals (togeth- 
er with other districts in (he four 
Thames regions. .which cover. the 


capital and the home counties), 
are losings 

The London hospitals are in 
turn also losing money to the less 
well-served parts of the south east, 
and spending on their acute 
services is also having to be cut to 
develop local services for the 
menially ill. the menially handi- 
capped and the elderly — an area 
where London's performance has 
long been poor. 

In addition the teaching hospi- 
tals have already had to face 
University Grants Committee re- 
ductions which have removed the 
posts of lecturers who do much 
NHS service work besides teach- 
ing and research. Cuts of at least 2 
per cent last year are to be 
followed by similar reductions this 
year and next, and money for 
research from the Medical Re- 
search Council has never been 
tighter. The University of London 
is warning bluntly that “the 
viability of the teaching institu- 
tions is being threatened". 

The Government is 
aware of the 
growing inequality 


The changes go back to 1976. 
Before that health service money 
was doled out on a basis that can 
be broadly characterized as “to 
those that have, more shall be 
given". From the foundation of 
the NHS in I°4S until 1976 the 
already large gap in health service 
spending per head of population 
between" London and its environs 
and the rest of the country grew. 
London's population was and is 
falling. But decisions were taken 
that in retrospect can be seen as 
key mistakes which now contrib- 
ute to the capital's problems. 
Instead of mov ing the all-powerful 
teaching hospitals like Charing 
Cross, the Royal Free and St 
George's to Southampton. Read- 
ing. Hull or almost anywhere but 
London, they were shifted just a 
few miles down the road, and 
rebuilt at vast expense. 

Aware of the growing inequal- 
ities in health provision, the 
Labour government set up the 
Resource Allocation Working Par- 
ty. The formula it devised — based 
broadly on population, weighted 
for age and sex. and using stan- 
dard death rates; as a crude 
measure of health service need 



Preventive measures: as waiting lists rise, beds all over London are kept empty to save money 

^ London can no longer be allowed to stand still 
while the rest of the NHS gets money to catch up^ 


has been used ever since to try and 
redistribute cash more fairly. 

The RAWP formula was. how- 
ever. conceived in an ape of 
growth. The Government's figures 
may prove that health service 
spending has risen by 24 per cent 
above inflation since 1979. but the 
hospital and community services 
have experienced little if any real 
growth in spending power once 
NHS pay and price rises have been 
taken into account and allowance 


made for the rising numbers of 
elderly. There is also a need for an 
extra 0.5 per cent of services a year 
to keep up with technological 
advances. 

London can no longer be al- 
lowed to stand still while new 
money goes to the rest of the NHS 
to allow it to catch up. For 
London. RAWP means cuts in 
spending. Change can be met only 
by greater efficiency and by cut- 
ting ; services that the gaining 


districts are meant to be 
providing. 

The scale of the change required 
is awesome. That London had 
(and still has) fat to cut compared 
with the rest of the NHS is not in 
question. Inner London was lit- 
tered with small hospitals; costly 
to ’run. inefficient and under- 
occupied. In 1974 there were 26 
hospitals in the East End m an 
area little more than four miles by- 
six. Meanwhile, thousands of. 


patients a year were travelling 30 
miles and more into London for 
routine operations becaus e of lack 
of beds in their own areas. 

The change that has . already 
been achieved is impressive. Since 
1979. when RAWP really began to 
bite, well over 3.000 acute hospital 
beds have dosed in Greater. 
London. Yet such has been the 
improvement in shorter lengths of - 
stay, quicker turn-round, and 
more efficient use of beds and 
theatres that health ministers can 
claim significant increases in pa- 
tients treated — 70,000 more in- 
patient cases than .in 1978, 75,000 
more day cases, 50.000 more, out- 
patient attendances. 

But the signs of strain are 
becoming apparent. Waiting-lists 
in Greater London grew by over 
3.000 in the year to last September 
while elsewhere, in general, they 
fell as hospitals outside the capital 
also increased their efficiency. In 
south-west London all waiting-list 
admissions were cancelled for 

: The scale of the 
. required changes 
will be awesome 


several days last winter al a time 
when the weather, was not bad and 
there were no obvious epidemics. 
London's Emergency Bed Service . 
is finding it tougher to get hospi- 
tals to accept emergenc ie s. 

. A key reason may well be that 
acute hospital services are going 
out of London (aster than they are 
being replaced elsewhere in dm 
Home Counties. In addition care- 
ful planning is being disrupted by 
the same mid-year, short-term ' 
crises that have fared all health 
authorities in recent years — the 
Lawsoii cuts of 1983. followed By 
the Government's failure to folly 
fund pay awards. _ 

Coming on top of budgets that 
are already befog reduced, ibe . 
impact can be dire. Bloomsbury, 
for example, had to close services 
at the National Temper a nce and; 
St Pan eras Hospitals, the accident 
and emergency department at the 
Middlesex, and 97 beds at Univer- 
sity College Hospital and the 
Middlesex — in each case earlier 
than planned — just to slay on 
budget 

■ Alasdair Liddell, Bloomsbury's 
general manager, says: "We see no 
evidence that the pressure on us is.

The undressed buildings of 
Praga. pale and pockmarked 
by - war. house the highest 
concentration of criminals in 
Warsaw. It is not Brixtonor 
the Bronx, but it is tough. At 
dusk, a half-gloom settles on 
the long courtyards. The fuses 
and bulbs, have been looted 
from the street lamps, and 
people lurch rather than walk, 
giving the impression that the 
whole district has been ether- 
ized. This Ts 'not far from the 
truth: in Praga over the past 
year all murderers, rapists and 
car thieves, 70 per cent of 
those involved in brawls, and 
65 per cent of muggers were 
under the influence of alcohol 
when they committed their 
crimes. And 95 per cent of the 
victims were drunk. 

Wednesday should be a 
quiet night. It is not payday or 
a popular saint's day — Jozef, 
say, when everybody of that 
name gives a party — it is 
simply the middle of the week. 
At 7pm Captain Wojciech 
Hoffman, buriy, a short mili- 
tary moustache, the gruffness 
of a city policeman, strides 
into the briefing room of his 
station on Cyril and 
Methodius Street Two dozen 
patrolmen jump up from their 
desks. The captain reads out a 
list of stolen goods and miss- 
ing people. Sooner or later 
most of the cassette recorders, 
sheepskins. Atari computers, 
car tyres and jewellery will 
turn up in Praga. 


In an unprecedented glimpse of the 
law in action behind the Iron Curtain, 
Roger Boyes joins the Polish police on 
night patrol on the streets of Warsaw

the dead hours: checking 
shops, especially a big food 
supermarket where alcohol is 
stocked. Sgt O: “After mid- 
night you've got to reckon that 
90 per cent of the people on 
the streets here are up to no 
good”. 

A few hours in the back ofa 
police van and one becomes , 
more suspicious than the po- 
licemen. Who is that woman 
walking a dog? Why are those 
men hinging around? Three 
kids laughing: check them, 
says my instinct. The police- 
men drive past “It's a ques- 
tion of experience. Most 
people with nothing to fear 
move slowly”. 


A t 1150pm, by a bus 
shelter, it looks as if 
we may have found 
our first corpse. Face 
down, very cold. Sgt O feels 
the pulse. It's -5C outside, 
though deep into spring. He is 
alive but dead drunk. 
Ambulancemen arrive in 20 
minutes. A chain-smoking 
woman doctor decides that 
“he's sleeping too deeply” and 
takes him to hospitaL

just been raped in one of the 
dark, gaping entrance ways. 
The man was the son of her 
friend. Sgt J snatches the 
cigarette from her mouth and 
lets her into the van. . 

Stalowa Street 13. Wooden 
floorboards, a smell, inexpli- 
cably. of caged ' animals, a 
shrine to the virgin Mary, lit 
by a single light bulb. We bang 
on the door, Sgt J taps on the 
back window. After 15 min- 
utes and a threat to batter the 
door down, the mother 
emerges. Inside it is dark, no 
electricity, no meter even, but 
the light of the shrine shows us 
something of the dirt 
The man. who is 30, denies 
everything until the police 
find the assaulted woman's 
shoes and her papers. He is 
allowed to put on a coat is 
hauled off. His story “I was 
taking her to a bus stop, had to 
drag her because she was so 
drunk. Then we got to a 
gateway and made love. She 
wanted to. Then f noticed that 
her shoes and bag were miss- 
ing and went to search, for 
them, and when I brought 
them back she was gone . . 

The police doctor confirms 
the woman had sex. but finds 
no signs of violence. The man 
is put in a celt complaining.'.

T he criminal epicentre 
of Praga is the Bazaar 
Rozyckiego, an open- 
air market in which, 
like a crooked Harrods, -one 
can buy anything. Hot goods 
find their fences here, foreign 
currencies find their custom- 
ers. tarts find their pimps. The 
ripples spread outwards, en- 
gulfing iwo suburban railway 
stations that carry thousands 
of villagers in and out of 
Warsaw every day — easy 
picking, most of them, after a 
couple of drinks. 

The equipment has been 
checked - magazines re- 
moved from revolvers, gas 
spravs displayed — and soon 
the patrol is under way: Ser- 
geant Marian J. moustache 
like a hussar, quiet; and 
Sergeant Jan O, earnest non- 
smoking. We look at the 
briefing folder. It reminds the 
policemen to check people 
with heavy baggage, parking 
places, street vendors and 
Hooligans, and to make a note 
of any new anti-state slogans. 
Political graffiti is on the ebb: 
gone is the martial law routine

Fifteen years ago Ahn Wen- 
b erg, one of tire architects elf 
atomic power, spoke of tbe 
“Faustian bargain” hSsfeBew 
nuclear scientists .bad made 
with society. Oe the one band, 
he said, they offered "an 
inexhaustible source of 
energy” which, when properly 
bandied, is almost non- pollut- 
ing. On the other: "The price 
we demand from society for 
this magical energy source is 
both vigilance and a longevity 
of our social in sti t ution s that 
we are quite unaccustomed 
to.” The radioactive gas cloud 
from Chernobyl is the dearest 
evidence, if not the first, thar 
tbe price is too high. 

The social instit u tions in 
question indude those respon- 
sible for tbe regulation of the 
mid ear power industry: hi die 
UK, the Nuclear Installations 
Inspectorate; in the USA, tire 
Nuclear Regulatory Commis- 
sion; and in the USSR, the 
State Committee for the Su- 
pervision of Safe Work in 
Nuclear Power. All three sub- 
scribe to the codes of practice 
and safety guidelines compiled 
by tbe International Atomic 
Energy Agency (IAEA), 
whose director-general. Dr 
Hans Blix. travelled to the 
Soviet Union from the 
agency's headquarters in Vi- 
enna last week. 

The IAEA technical docu- 
ments run to more Hum 2,000 
pages, com prising five codes of 

International control 
is clearly needed 

conduct and 55 safety guides. 
But they were completed only 
last year, and as far as the 
major nuclear powers were 
concerned they merely supple- 
mented the procedures already 
in place. 

Sharp contrasts exist be- 
tween countries in the applica- 
tion of safety regulations. US 
industry 1ms to meet absolute 
standards. In tbe UK, the 
process is doser to negotia- 
tion: safety inspectors respond 
to evidence submitted by the 
electricity generating boards, 
requesting additional informa- 
tion nirtil they are satisfied. 

The. 'national organizations 
have the teeth of law; the 
JAEA is a paper tiger. Yet the 
; Chernobyl disaster revealed a 
weed for a degree of snprana- 
tional intervention. 

The IAEA does have some 
global overview of nuclear 
power. A computer data base 
at the Vienna headquarters 
contains descriptions and his- 
tories of all the commercial 
reactors in the world with no 
declared, military connexion. 
Thiree years ago, the IAEA 


impressed on -its -member 
countries the hazards rtf 
"transbeundary exposure", 
and a procedure was .-prepared 
for mutual aid and information 
exchange between 

neighbo uri ng countries in 
emergencies. The belated invi- 
tation that took Dr BKx to 
Moscow was made in accor- 
dance with these plans. Until 
the member countries ajpee to 

Sharp contrasts in 
.safety regulations 

give the organization the pow- 
er to take initiatives, such 
: delays are inevitable. 

Tbe IAEA's brief also far 
dudes curbing foe prolifera- 
tion of unclear weapons via 
commensal applications of 
atomic energy. The object is to 
check that weapons-grade pin-, 
tonrani is not being produced' 
clandestinely, and that en- 
riched uranium is not being 
. diverted for military use. The ; 
.IAEA's calculations are based ’ 
on an inventory of fhe nudear 
material going into a reactor 
with a record of the time whefl ■ 
it came out and the conditions 
under which the plant was 
operated through the faterven- 
mg period. 

Excluded from inspection 
among the 100 members are 
the military reactors of the 
nuclear weapons states, who 
have also Insisted on exemp- 
tion for a few commercial - 
installations. These include 
Chernobyl' and the British 
reactor at Calder HalL 

Verification of tire safety of 
design, the quality of construc- 
tion and operator t raining and ■' 
the rigour of procedures for ' 
handling waste is mandatory _ 
for all civil reactors — except ' 
*n foe nuclear weapons states, ; '■ 
which could only be included if 
they were prepared to relta- ;

our naiting-Iisissre growingiong- 
erand foe queues out ha Essex arc 
not gening any shorter because 
new services are not being provid- 
ed out there- as quickly as we are 
reducing them''.. !' 

To addition, there is a. growing 
belief among some of London's 
. general tnana gr rs that tire money 
which is going out of London, to. 
foe Home Counties is being spent 
faster on priority services for tbe 
mentally ill and handicapped and 
the elderly than on providing 
acute services to rcplacr those lost 

- in London,. Dr Stephen Jenkins, 
grnerai manager at West Lambeth 
Health Authority, says: "To pul it 
fa an extreme way. we suspect tbe . 
money we are faring fa going into 
fioW-platcd loos for getiatnes in 
the rotting green fields of Kent, dot 
fa replacing our acme services” . 

If llw'feebng growing in Loudon 
is Thar the pace or change, is 
beco mi ng too quick/ihere is stfll 
much change to come. On current 
plans . the district containing 
St Thomas's calculates that it has 
to. lose another 200 beds and cut 
£18 million from its spe ndin g on 
acute services of £48 imBi nn over ' 
the seat 10 years. A third of that is 
due to come from greater efficien- 
cy and a fair part of the sayings 
will go faro developing priority 
services locally. But St Thomas's ' 
is being asked to save from its 
spending on acute services more 
than fa spent on the entire budget * 
of Hartlepool or Milton Keynes 
: health authorities. 

- On Bfaomsbury Health Auth- 
ority's reading of the present 
{dans, a district foal since 1982 has 
out its spending by £7.6 million, 
its beds, by 3 30 (almost 20 per 
centfaod Hs^staff by 1.500 while 
beeping up the number, of patients 
ft treated^ faces a farther reduction 
by 1993 of another 270 beds and p 
reduction of v» minimum .fcf - 
£22 milifan ou spending on hospi- 
ia! services of about £85 million. 

• Alasdair Liddell says: “I am not 
sure fa u possible to cope with that 
kind of change at that pace 
without for wholesale destruction 
of important, services."

The obscene sequence of famine, starvation and 
death must not happen again. 

The poor, who inherited their poverty, were 
powerless to prevent ft. 

Christian Aid believes that the way to break 
that sequence is for us in the West and the poor in 
the Third World to work together to put into the 
hands of the poor and powerless the means to 
support themselves. 

It meansflndlngand developing the land to work 

on: land often taken away from the poor by the 
rich in their own country, or by corporations to 
grow food for the West 

it means tools, seed, water and loans for local 
farmers. 

And bread-winning opportunities for the 




landless: workshops and small industries, nets for 
nsherfolk, materials for craftsmen, education for 
children and adults, health centres to prevent 
curable sickness. 

Not least, ft Is to help the powerless to the 
equal rights (and responsibilities) they need to 
participate in the development of their own 
countries. 

All this is work in which Christian Aid asks you 
to join. For it is no small change that Christian Aid 
wants, b ut change for good.

Tower power 


Liberal campaigners for propor- 
tional representation could be 
forgiven for harbouring second 


thoughts after the party won the 
>f Tow 


London borough of Tower Ham- 
lets in the local government 
elections. Thanks to the archaic 
and oft-criticized “first past the 
post** system, they beat Labour by 
one seat, despite polling fewer 
votes. The same archaic etc sys- 
tem allowed local Alliance leader 
Jim Boyd, to scrape back into his 
seat at Bexley, south of the river, 
when — after three recounts had 
given his Tory rival exactly the 
same number of votes — they held 
a draw and Boyd won. 


Wrong address 


Young Tory hopeful Marc-Henri 
G leadening should not have been 
too surprised by his thumping 
rejection by the Hackney South 
and Shoreditch electorate in last 
week's ILEA elections. The former 
chairman of the Federation of 
Conservative Students set about 
canvassing the rock-solid Labour 
constituency with gusto. It was 
only after a concerted spell of 
leafieting that he realized he was 
stomping the wrong area. “I did a 
bit of Hackney North and a bit of 
Islington by accident*'* he admits. 
“I was about 200 leaflets adrift — 
not the difference between win- 
ning and losing". He ended up 
15,000 votes behind Labour. 


Scorch scotch 


Another Oxford tradition has 
gone up in flames. Oriel has 
banned.the "burning of the boats" 
ceremony, in which rowers turned 
Viking in a dangerous victory 
celebration after the annual 
Torpids regatta. Last term, one of 
Oriel's first female undergraduates 
was singed.

Bear cop 


According to this week's Police 
magazine, some London mag- 
istrates have complained that 
officers have been attending court 
wearing golliwog badges. The 
complaint dearly confused the 
deputy assistant commander of 
Six .Area, Metropolitan Police, 
which stretches from Heathrow to 
Kensington. He has banned the 
wearing of Rupert Bear brooches, 
which policemen buy to finance 
holidays for families of murdered 
RUC officers. 


McCarthyism 


Professor Colin McCarthy, a for- 
mer economic adviser to the 
South African government, who 
was due to do a summer research 
stint at the London School of 
Economics, has cancelled bis visit 
at the last minute. Head of 
economics at the Afrikaans 
Stellenbosch University. Mc- 
Carthy was invited to Britain for 


six weeks by the economics 
department of t 


the LSE, and was 

due to arrive this month. The 
invitation, as I reported in March, 
caused a furore among students, 
who saw it as taril LSE approval of 
apartheid. The LSE maintained 
that McCarthy had merely been 
■seconded to 'Pretoria’s industry 
department in 1977 and that a 
paper had “pointed out a few 
uncomfortable home truths” to 
the regime. However, clearly per- 
turbed by the strength of the 
reaction. McCarthy dispatched a 
curt missive to the LSE cancelling 
his visit. An LSE spokesman iells 
me it had been made unequivo- 
cally clear to McCarthy that the 
im station still stands. 


When privilege provokes 


The new Labour leader of Cam- 
den council is to be Ken 
Livingstone's girl friend. Kate 
Alien, who was elected from a 
shortlist of three on Saturday. One 
of the first people she will meet at 
the town hall this morning will be 
the council's highly-paid policy 
adviser. John McDonnell —sack- 
ed as deputy GLC leader by the 
Labour group last March afer a 
spectacular fall-out with Living- 
stone. McDonnell publicly at- 
tacked Livingstone for betraying 
party policy in setting a legal rate. 
Livingstone, in turn, complained 
that McDonnell had "split the 
group, split the party, opened our 
flank to attack from the media, 
and set back the whole rate- 
capping campaign". So should 
McDonnell start looking for an- 
other job? Not at all. Livingstone 
told me yesterday. “John and I 
have been working well recently. 
Our mutual aims are more im- 
portant than our rows, and we 
have both been working towards a 
GLC in exile. You only have to 
look at the Wilson-Callaghan 
relationship to understand what 
I'm driving aL" 


PHS 


I have always maintained that this 
country gets the House of Com- 
mons it deserves. The House 
reflects the public at large, not 
only, not even mainly, in the 
House's pany proportions, but in 
attitudes, understanding, charac- 
ter and intelligence. Those who 
select candidates for Parliament 
must, to a very great extent, pick 
people like themselves; bow could 
selection committees work other 
than by the unconscious recog- 
nition of the qualities with which 
they are most familiar? And with 
what qualities could they be more 
familiar than their own? 

Thus, there are drunks in the 
House of Commons because there 
are drunks in the country; scoun- 
drels there because scoundrels 
here; on the same basis adulterers, 
spies, bores, dog-lovers; sufferers 
from halitosis, amnesia or piles; 
fooi-feiishisis. wife-beaters and 
bastards; claustrophobics, hyster- 
ics and achromatopsies; even. I 
dare say. a psychopath or two. But 
there is no reason to believe that 
the proportion of any of these to 
the whole House of Commons is 
greater than in the country as a 
whole, and much evidence that it 
is dol 

Then why is it that the members 
of the House of Commons 
Committee of Privileges, what- 
ever they may be like as individ- 
uals, invariably make asses of 
themselves when they act collec- 
tively? Leave out the two mem- 
bers of the committee who are 


by Bernard Levin 


appointed ex officio — the Leader 
of the House (because such mat- 
ters dearly fall within bis 
responsibility) and the Attorney 
General pro tern (to ensure that 
justice shall at least be rendered 
incomprehensible and if possible 
excluded altogether from the 
proceedings) and glance down the 
list I know a good many of them; I 
have dined with some, taken wine 
with others, campaigned on mat- 
ters of mutual agreement with yet 
others, even played bridge with 
one. And 1 swear by the shade of 
Simon de Montfort that, token 
singly, they could not, would not, 
for their immortal souls dare not, 
put their hands to the 26 para- 
graphs of folly which compose the 
Report from the Committee of 
Privileges dealing with the pub- 
lication by this newspaper of the 
leaked draft report of the Select 
Committee on Radioactive 
Waste. 

I assume that my readers will 
have read at least the summaries 
of this business. Summarized even 
further, what happened was as 
follows. The leak led to a hunt for 
the “culprit”, in the course of 
which all the MPs on the select 
committee (the suggestion that the 
leak might have come from a 
member of the committee's staff 
can be safely ignored) were obliged 
to sign a document denying 
responsibility; all signed, at least 


one of them fraudulently. Because 
the select committee was embar- 
rassed by the presence of a gossip 
among their number, and even 
more embarrassed by their inabil- 
ity to discover and expose the 
leaker.the Committee of Privi- 
leges (with the honourable excep- 
tion of Anthony Wedgwood 
Bennk decided that the recipient 
of the leak, and the newspaper 
which employs him, should be 
punished. 

And they do not know how the 
country jeers and laughs at them 
for it. My memory of privilege 
decisions goes back more than 30 
years, and I know of none which 
enhanced the dignity of Par- 
liament, much less the committee 
itself The most instructive, in this 
regard, was the Garry Aflighan 
case; it concerned an MP who had 
written an article revealing, to the 
surprise of nobody outside Par- 
liament itself, that some of his 
fellow MPS leaked stories for 
money. It subsequently transpired 
that he had himself done what he 
was waxing so indignant about, 
and he was expelled from the 
House. But it was very clear that 
he was expelled more for his 
indiscreet revelations than for his 
taking of bribes. 

And so exquisitely complete is 
the committee's unconsciousness 
of the absurdity of their entire 
proceedings that they handed 


down their jutfemenL condemn- 
ing an honest journalist and bis 
newspaper, for revealing matters 
relating to the dangers of radio- 
activity, while the whole world 
was still shaking with the implica- 
tions of the Chernobyl disaster. 
The judgment of the Committee 
of Privileges is based partly on 
their own pique [The Times had 
earlier published a leak from the 
Privileges Committee itself), part- 
ly on a vicarious sense of amour 
propre on behalf of their col- 
leagues on the select committee, 
partly on the frustration caused by 
their failure to find which MP had 
leaked the information, partly on 
their guilty knowledge that every 
constituent part of our political 
life is leakier than any colander in 
any kitchen and that the most 
comprehensively perforated is the 
Cabinet, and most of all on their 
underestimate of the lade of regard 
for them among the public and 
their misunderstanding of the 
causes of that lack. 

The Report of the Committee of 
Privileges is not itself final. The 
House of Commons has to accept 
or reject it. I trust that there are 
enough sensible men and women 
in the House, untainted by their 
colleagues’ madness, to reject it. 
While they are doing so. they 
might with advantage tell the 
Committee of Privileges to take 
itself less seriously, or behave 
itself more seriously. Or better 
still, both.

.After Thursday's election results 
Tory MPs are thoroughly jittery. 
They are looking for someone to 
blame, and that someone is Nor- 
man Tebbit His political style and 
his management of Conservative 
Centra] Office are both under 
attack. 

To some extent, this dem- 
onstrates the febrility of present- 
day Tory MPs; it seems 
alarmingly easy for waves of 
hysteria to sweep across the back 
benches. Only last summer, some 
of those now most vociferous in 
criticizing Tebbit regarded him as 
the one man who could save the 
party. 

Running Central Office is no 
easy task. The Tory party's oppo- 
nents have always ludicrously 
overrated its effectiveness. In fact, 
as party chairmen come and go, 
none has yet succeeded in creating 
a proper management structure to 
give focus to Central Office's 
activities. .Although there are 
some good people and some well- 
run departments, there is a great 
deal of dross and demoralization. 
There are occasional reshuffles, 
but Mr Bumble and Mrs Fumble, 
Sir Deadwood and Dame Derelict, 
Mr Witter and Miss Twitter 
somehow always survive them. 

Of late, this has become es- 
pecially serious because of the 
transformation of Labour HQ. 
Under Larry Whitty and the 
communications director, Peter 
Man del son. Walworth Road has 
ceased to be a political disaste r 
area. Indeed, unless Central Office 
is pulled round before the next 
election, the Labour machine, at 
least at the centre, will be in better 
shape than the Tory one for the 
first time since 1945. 

The slickness of Labour's recent 
"Freedom and Fairness” cam- 
paign, orchestrated by Mandelson, 
brought this home to many senior 
Tories. At present. Central Office 
does not have the ability to mount 
a similar co-ordinated and sys- 
tematic presentation of Conser- 
vative policies. The Tories are 
being out-Saatchi-ed, and the 
search is on for someone to put 
things righL 

Tebbit was well aware of these 
wealmesses before last Thursday 
but it has taken him longer than 
might have been expected to set 
about dealing with them. He has 
not yet stamped his authority on 
the party machine. One problem 
here is that he is an extremely bad 
butcher. His instinct is to treat 
those who work for him with 
kindness and consideration. His 
civil servants are always fiercely 
loyal to him. (The one criticism 
one bears is bis tendency to switch 
on Test match commentaries 
during briefing meetings). 


After the voting, Bruce Anderson reports 
on what’s wrong at Smith Square 


Why Tories too 
must feel 


the Tebbit lash 







Tebbit: slow off the mark — and now little time 


But some of Tebbit's more 
informed critics believe that how- 
ever favourably disposed he was 
towards civil servants, he needs to 
take a much tougher line at 
Central Office. They wish that in 
his dealings with the Smith Square 
staff be would try to live up more 
to the abrasive image he has 
acquired for his comments on the 
Labour Party. 

There is a problem here. In 
politics, it is a good idea to have 
nice men saying nasty things, and 
vice versa. That was always going 
to be the difficulty about the 
Tebbit chairmanship. In public at 
least, be is a hard man: he enjoys 
nothing better than going on the 
attack and laying into his political 
opponents. 

But those who are criticizing 
him for raucousness are not 


namby-pambies. Still less are they 
suggesting that there is no place in 
Tory propaganda for aztadcs on 
Labour. They just feel that Tebbit 
is getting the tone wrong, and that 
if the Tories try to claim that Neil 
Kinnock is a blend of Michael 
Foot and Benue Grant, this will 
help him to project himself in the 
mould of a Harold Wilson or 
James Callaghan. 

John Biffen in particular be- 
lieves that there was a danger of 
the electorate swallowing a false 
syllogism: the Tories say Labour is 
in the grip of extremists; this is not 
true; therefore Labour must have 
good policies. Biffen thinks that 


the Tories sbould be concentrating 

s of 


on the economic implications 
Labour’s policies for spending, 
taxation, and intervention, and on 
the damaging effect these would 


have on the nation's ec o nomic 
prospects. 

He points out that there is now a 
great deal of common ground 
between Labour and the Alli- 
ance — but that this gives the 
government its opportunity. It 
should be broadcasting its ach- 
ievements in controlling inflation 
and in spreading ownership while 
pointing out that its opponents 
stand only for another instalment 
of past failures. 

Of course, this disagreement 
between Biffen and Tebbit is 
another instalment of the radicals 
versus consolidators debate. The 
Prime Minister wants to bring all 
that tt an end by producing a new 
policy document which win re- 
state the fundamentals of Conser- 
vative policy and philosophy for 
the next few years. She remembers 
the success of a similar exercise — 
The Right Approach of 1976 — in 
resolving earlier disputes. The 
new version wQi attempt to soften 
the party's message on health, 
education, and pensions, taking 
the theme “Services, Yes, Waste. 
No”, while restating the basics of 
Thatcfaerite economics. 

However, a discreet but vig- 
orous argument is now taking 
place as to who should oversee 
this document. Tebbit naturally 
wants control; Mrs Thatcher is 
minded to entrust it to Leon 
Brittan. Tebbit believes this would 
indicate that the Prime Minister 
fades confidence in him. 

In addition, the next manifesto 
will inevitably draw heavily on 
this document Earlier this year, 
when Tebbit tried to assert sole 
control over the drafting of the 
manifesto, Mrs Thatcher rebuffed 
him. He feels that if he does not 
oversee the new document he may 
end up with no control at afl. 

This dispute will probably be 
resolved by the obvious com- 
promise, under which Brittan 
would do most of the drafting 
under Tebbit’s chairmanship. But 
the fact that this compromise has 
not yet been arrived at is indic- 
ative of the present strained 
relations between Mrs Tfaaicher 
and her party chairman. She 
thinks that be is not getting on 
with in he feds that she is not 
giving him enough support. 

The next three months are 
probably the most crucial period 
of Norman Tebbit's c hairman. 
ship. Even allowing for circum- 
stances, he has made a slower start 
than most observers expected. He 
is about to try to rectify that — and 
as there is no prospect of Mrs 
Thatcher replacing him, it is 
crucial for the Tones* prospects 
that he succeeds.

Many winners, one loser, in Dhaka poll 


Dhaka 

As the dust begins to settle after 
Bangladesh's violently contested 
general election it is possible to 
discern some of the real winners 
and losers. The most obvious 
winner is General Husain Muh- 
ammad Ershad, the chief martial 
law admini strator and Self-pTO- 
claizned president Despite the 
terror tactics and the ballot rigging 
so shamelessly inflicted on the 
electors, his regime has actually 
held elections, and the country 
will have a parliament. Ershad has 
thus established some kind of 
democratic credentials for him- 
self; democracy with defects, as' 
everyone will agree, is better than 
no democracy at all. 

Further, it seemed likely yes- 
terday that his Jatiyo party would 
command a majority m the new 
Assembly, despite the fact that it 
was formed only five months 
ago. The latest figures show that 
he might just fall short of an 
overall majority or might just 
achieve one after the re-polling 
ordered in 21 constituencies. He 
will not achieve the two-thirds 
majority needed to put through 
constitutional amendments, but 
he win certainly be able to add a 
number of independents to his 
party’s total. Twenty-four in- 
dependents have already been 
elected and there could be another 
six after re-polling: at least half of 
these, it is estimated, will side with 
Jatiyo. 

A senior party figure told me at 
the weekend that six have alrady 
signed papers indicating thor 
support. A number of the indepen- 
dents are in feci disappointed 


Jatiyo men who were denied party 
endorsement at the time of 
nomination and who will certainly 
be available to the party now. 

A curiosity of the election in this 
overwhelmingly Muslim state is 
that the MPs will elect 30 women 
to join them. Given the antici- 
pated outcome, it seems certain 
that all 30 will be Jatiyo support- 
ers, so converting the govern- 
ment's majority from minimal to 
comfortable. 

President Ershad told me last 
week that he would need only a 
simple majority in the Assembly 
to pass a bill turning the acts of the 
martial law regime into statutory 
faw. A number of constitutional 
authorities disagree and insist that 
those acts which changed the 
constitution will need to be treated 
as constitutional amendments. 
For this purpose Ershad may well 
be able to cajole sufficient support 
from the minor parties to get his 
two thirds majority. The Jammat- 
i-lslami and similar parties could 
no doubt be dragooned into his 
camp fora single occasion. “If that 
doesn't give us enough votes we 
shall buy the rest”, a Jatiyo leader 
cheerfully admitted. 

One martial faw regulation 
n eeding a two-thirds majority will 
be the decentralization of justice, 
which has brought , the courts 
closer tn the people. In this way 
ErshacTs assumption of power and 
his subsequent actions win be 
endorsed and he will be able to 
hold a presidential election to 
further consolidate his democratic 
credentials. 

Despite its apparent defeat at 
the .poDs, the Awami League, the 



Ershad: now for tin 
of martial law i 


main opposition party, has also 
achieved something. In the first 
place it is a major victory to have 
forced the military dictatorship to 
hold party-based elections at afl. 


Other lesser parties may also 
count their blessings. The Com- 
munist Party, for instants, which 
had not won a parliamentary seat 
since 1954, when East Bengal was 
part of Pakistan — and then only 
in one of the seats reserved for 
Hindus — now holds five. Its suc- 
cess may be attributed to two 
factors, first, because it fought in 
alliance with the Awami League 
and under the same symbol of a 
boat, it benefited from Awamfs 
built-in support in the country- 
side. Secondly, it was able to 
concentrate its workers in those 
seats allocated to it under the 
electoral alliance. 

The principal loser seems to be 
the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, 
led by Begum Khaleda Zia, widow 
of General Zia ur-Rahman. the 
assassinated former president. 
The BNP declined to enter the 
fray, partly perhaps because the 
government did not offer it suf- 
ficient funds and also because a 
number of its leaders have crim- 
inal convictions and were dis- 
barred from standing; the gov- 
ernment refused to offer them 
indulgence. As a result, the BNP 
has no seats in the new assembly. 

No matter how loudly the BNP 
may cry that the parliament is a 
sham, it has so far failed to

Last Christmas I was given a 
present which , has proved both 
useful and inspiring — a _ desk 
diary illustrated by magni ficent 
reproductions of details from 
Impressionist paintings. Left open 
by the telephone for use as an all- 
purpose shopping list, memo rad 
an d engagement record, it nas 
week by week record ed the bum- 
drummery of life opposite a 
fragment of the sublime, a piece of 
yellow Sisley sky. say, or a couple 
of startling Van Gogh, irises. 

By cruet chance, local election 
week featured a picture which 
could not have been more provoc- 
atively inappropriate. It was a 
detail of a painting by Berthe 
Morisot called “Under the Lilac 
Trees of Maurecourt". Every rime 


I came in — phoning in a press 
s minutes before dead- 


release five 
line, dashing off a last-minute 
leaflet, snatching a quick trite 
before an evening meeting — there 
it was, teasing me A tranquil 
female figure, in black dress and 
white bonnet, graceful hands 
working over a scrap of em- 
broidery, sits in a deep pool of 
shade under a tree. Nextto her are 
two little girls, square in their 
pinafores, with flushed chubby 
cheeks; behind them a brilliant 
sun-lit lawn splashed with daisies. 

It is a powerful evocation of a 
world of happy, domesticity, of 
long peaceful summer days in the 
gar den, as far removed as it is 
possible to be from the political 
hurly burfy. “What a fool you are" 
it kept saying. “ this is what life is 
really about". The only political 
demand one could imagine tins 
woman making would be that the 
country should somehow be, as 
the prayer book puts it, “Godly 
and quietly governed" wink her 
.tranquility is left undisturbed. 
Certainly an election canvasser, 
homing over the gam and shouting 
“Good morning marianr, I hope 
we can count on yam - support on 
Thursday", would jar the at- 
mosphere horribly. 

A further cause of menial 
uneasiness was that the whole 
pose, countenance and occupation 
of this woman conveyed w hat 
these days is condemned as gross 
sex stereotyping. There she sits, 
placidly sewing and minding the 
children. Looking thoroughly ab- 
sorbed and at peace with the 
world. ..you can imagine the 
undermining effect on a modern 
political woman in mid-campaign. 

. But it has provoked me into 
finding out a link more about 
Berthe Morisot's life and works. 
She was born in 1841 into a 
comfortable professional, middk- 
ciass Parisian family. She studied 
with Corot, became a close friend 
■ of- Manet (whose - brother- she 
married) and later of .Renoir. 
Degas and the poet MaflannE. 
Most of her drawings and paint- 
ings are of women ami children: in 
particular there axe innumerable 
ciurcs of her datzgiier and 
vourite niece as they grew up 
together — mostly sketches cap- 
tured from daily life rather than 
posed portraits: children making 
mud pies and catching butterflies: 
playing the piano. Trading, dar- 
ting. Afl are full of maternal 


tenderness. Her private life, 
according to her biographers, was 
singularly undisturbed and calm. 

Yet the extraordinary thing is 

that her work caused a storm. One 
of her early drawing teachers was 
so alarmed by her talent that be 
took tor father aside and said: 

. “Your daughter cjH become a 
painter.. Do you realize what that • 
means? in your environment of 
the upper middle class this will be 
a revolution. { might almost say a 
catastrophe." 

In the 1870s rite exhibited with 
the other Impressionists in Paris: 
“five or six hmaiics. one of whom 
is a_ woman, a collection, of 
unfortunates tainted by the folly of 
ambition”, as they were described 
by the Figaro art critic. “What a 
terrifying spectacle is this of 
human vanity stretched to the 
verge of dementia - . . there is also 
a woman in the group, as is the 
case with all famous gangs. Her 
name is Berthe Morisot, and she is 
interesting to behold. In her 
feminine grace is preserved amidst 0 . 
the frenzy of a mind in delirium”. 

Seen in the context of contem- 
porary preoccupation, one would 
expect such a person — the only- 
woman in a man's world, exposed 
to this offensive sneering pscudo- 
gaflantry from the artistic est- 
ablishment — to be someth! ngof a 
feminist But her wort conveys no 
resentment at all of “women's 
lot". Rather the contrary. “The 
truth is that our value lies in 
feefing”, she wrote. “In intuition, 
in our vision that is subtler than 
that of men, and we can accom- 
plish a great deal provided that 
affectation, pedantry and senti- 
mentalism do not come to spoil 
everything." Who. these days. # 
would see these three particular 
dangers as the main obstacle to 
women’s achievement? 

She was luckv, of course, to be 
an anise: one of the few vocations 
to which women, however grudg- 
ingly. have always been given 
access. Yet her great charm is that 
even while she operated on equal 
terms with men she none the less 
drew her ins pi ra tion utmost en- 
tirely from the experience of 
women, working on that “subtler 
vision" without self-doubt or 
competitiveness. It is an enviable 
resolution oftht gender war that is 
difficult 7 to ‘ emulate in other 
spheres of activity.

It is sometimes assumed that 
Radio 4 is all words, talk and drat, 
with never a note of music to be 
heard. But perceptive listeners 
may have noticed that a talk on, 
for instance, China, opens with a 
gong and a burst of Chinese music. 
Unperceptive listeners may have 
noticed the same. In fact all 
listeners, whatever their percep- 
tion level, must tave noticed the 
slight seismic shock caused by the 
Chinese gong-ho at the start of any 
rahune on China.

Well, say someone has switch- 
ed on Radio 4 five minutes after a 
' programme has begun. And say 
the programme is based on 
reminiscences of old colonial 
hands from some far-flung part of 
the Empire, as most programmes 
seem to be the these days. Well, 
the listener warns to know im- 
mediately where he is being taken 

to. and T can do that by laving soft

they are reminiscing about the 
West Indies, then FU have steel 
bands banging away. If ft’s a 
particularly dull programme. Til 
raise the volume and try and 
drown the speaker." 

Barry's knowledge of world 
music is encyclopaedic. In other 
words, he has got ft afl from an 
encyclopaedia, and it is pretty 
superficial. But he claims that a 
deep knowledge of music would 
only baffle the listener.

probably give him the reel called

French music the average listener 
recognizes. Ironically, accordion 
music is tending to lose popularity 
in France. I often wonder if we 
don’t have more of it on Radio 4 
than on French radio.” 

Doesn’t this all make Radio 4's 
musical intros a bit predictable? 

“To a certain extent yes, though 
there’s always room for a bit of !

THE CANDID FRIEND

SSSS a^ e ao »^ 

assufit r-*. - 


the truth and to have little 
persona] ambition. It is still 
remembered how in January 
1980 he promised the country 
‘three years of unparalleled 
\f austerity” when the party line 
was to be not quite so specific. 
His detached donnish manner 
his uncertain health during the 
years of opposition, his icono- 
clasm towards many a cher- 
ished Tory icon, have 
combined to keep him off the 
lists when MPs play “follow 
my leader”. 

He is, therefore, particularly 
beloved of those whose job it is 
to predict the country’s politi- 
cal fortunes. He is the pundits’ 
favourite. London Weekend 
Television’s Weekend World 
. were surely delighted that he 
f could appear to give his re- 
action to the Conservatives* 
rough ride at the polls. 

Nor did he disappoint. 
“Black Thursday” was his 
verdict. Mrs Thatcher would 
not be leading the party 
through the foil course of the 
next parliament: so a “bal- 
anced ticket” needed to be 
prepared. Did she have liabil- 
ities? “Oh yes”. History would 
judge Mrs Thatcher gen- 
erously, he generously opined. 

The country wanted some 
“calculated humility”. 

‘ Explanation was better than 
preaching. As for the target of a 
2SP income tax rate, that was 
merely “one marker" in the 
coming debate. As for public 
spending, more was needed on 
education, health and local 
authority services. In case any 
lunchtime viewer might be 
more susceptible to history 


. If the Prime Minister were 
in any doubt about the impact 
of last week's election results, 
this reaction from file Leader 
of the House of Commons 
should have removed it.' She 
has a real struggle ahead to 
reassert herself and hex poli- 
cies to the par liamentaria n s 
and the people at large who are 
now so dearly so nervous of 
them. 

That is not to say that all Mr 
Biffen’s prescriptions are 
wrong. Far from it As we 
commented in. our own re- 
action to the poll verdict on 
Saturday, the Prime Minister 
is not the best spokesman to 
present a “caring” policy bn 
education and health. Other 
voices will be better heard. But 
that is a long way from the 
concept of “a balanced ticket”, 
which sounds like a recipe for 
power-sharing, uncertainty 
and electoral catastrophe. 

Nor is his coded assault on 
Mr Norman Tebbit wholly to 
be rejected. The nation does 
not seem to believe Mr 
Tebbit*s charge that the La- 
bour Party is in thrall to 
militant extremists. The na- - 
tion may live to regret its trust 
in the smiling MrKinnock but 
Mr Tebbit’s oft-repeated 
preachings may not be the best 
way to dissuade it Mr ScaigilL 
like inflation, is down and not 
out But, as in so many areas, 
the Government has not suc- 
ceeded in finding a. voice that 
can both remind voters about 


past dangers and reassure 
them about future ones. . 

Mr Biffen made some good 
suggestions yesterday — es- 
pecially on the need for a 
determined identification of 
what the Conservative' Party 
really is and what its oppo- 
nents are not His stress on 
sound money and the wider 
-ownership of wealth is central. 
But they are the very issues 
that the Prime Minister has 
made her own. It is disingenu- 
ous to. suggest that “a balanced 
ticket” would do anything but 
obscure their darky. 

It has, therefore to be asked 
whether yesterday should 
trunk the end of Mr Biffen’s 
special status as Mr Frank 
Sincerity. The sum of bis 
remarks is that the Prime 
Minister should lead the party 
into the next election like 
some latter-day H Cid — a 
propped-up politician, needed 
only because time is too short 
to accustom the troops to a 
replacement It was always 
thought that if the time came 
for the Conservatives to de- 
mand a new tenant for 
Downing Street, Viscount 
Whitelaw would be the man to 
bear in the velvet cushion and 
the jewel-handled dagger. In- 
stead it was the Leader of the 
House of Commons, with a 
delayed-action poison pill in a 
cup of London Weekend cof- 
fee. 

Before Mrs Thatcher begins 
the serious business of answer- 
ing the concerns expressed by 
the country last week, she 
should reject Mr Biffen’s gift. 
At the Conference of Scottish 
.Conservatives later this week 
she bas the chance to say that 
she has done so and why. 


SECURING RECONCILIATION IN ULSTER 


Many voices will be raised this 
week to claim that the 
Hillsborough agreement, 
signed six months ago by the 
British and Irish governments, 
has foiled. On the evidence of 
those months alone, it would 
be easy to agree with that 
judgement. The two main 
Unionist parties have publicly 
withdrawn from- pofificai in- 
stitutions in' the provinceustil . 
the government agrees to sus- 
pend the agreement — a with- 
drawal confirmed this 
weekend when Dr Ian Paisley 
and Mr James Molyneux can- 
celled Tuesday's meeting with 
the Government The Royal 
Ulster Constabulary is under 
attack from loyalist extremists. 
There has been law-breaking, 
violence, and murder aplenty, 
and there are ominous signals 
that worse may yet come. 

A few small gains have 
indeed been registered. North- 
South security cooperation is 
improving. The February by- 
elections registered a shift 
away from Provisional Sinn 
Fein and towards the Social 
Democratic and Labour Party. 
The Republic has signed the 
European Convention on the 
Suppression of Terrorism. 
And the United States has 
pledged modest funds to help 
the battered local economy. 

But such a checklist omits 
the heart of the problem. The 
achievements and prospects 
for the agreement should be 
judged against the the protec- 
tion of democratic life from 
violence and the reconciliation 
of a divided community. Gov- 
ernments have wavered over 
the years between giving the 
one aim or the other the higher 
priority, since counter-terror- 
ist policy has often obstructed 


the work of. reconciling one 
community to another. The 
Hillsborough agreement com- 
bines these aims in a fresh 
synthesis. 

. Reconciliation between 
communities is only posssible 
when compromises, can be 
reached free from the threat of 
violence. In current practical 
tenns mTrdand,-the next stage 
of that Tong Irani inyritves a 
closer alignment of the se- 
curity and judicial machinery 
on. either side of the border. 
There is a common enemy and 
there must be common ground 
on which allies can meet. 

The diplomacy of the agree- 
ment also involved realpolitik. 
Both governments could well 
admit that Britain needs se- 
curity assistance from the 
Republic; the Republic’s gov- 
ernment does not need the 
political unpopularity of 
extending such assistance fur- 
ther. A reciprocal concession 
has therefore been made in 
allowing the Republic an 
opportunity to represent the 
Roman Catholic minority in 
the north. 

But the precise form of the. 
agreement takes prodigious’ 
risks. It has allowed this 
concession without any resid- 
ual pressure on the Republic to 
abandon its constitutional- 
claim to the north, and there is 
no leverage on the SDLP to 
encourage it to engage in 
serious negotiation over de- 
volved government in Belfast. 
Every concession to national- 
ism thus runs the risk that it 
will be matched not by com- 
promise, but by further de- 
mands for reunification, and 
nothing less.' It also risks a 
long-term boycott by the 
unionist community. 


Unionists ' fear the im- 
position of a secret diplomatic 
process with influence over life 
m Northern Ireland. Read in 
that- way, the agreement marks 
a step towards a gradual 
unification of Ireland without 
the permission of the majority 
in the north. But no agreement 
of this kind which- was nego- 
tiated entirely in the open 
would have ever survived the 
veto of extremists. Diplomatic 
privacy, frequently punctured 
by newspaper leaks, does not 
amount to conspiracy. The 
agreement was, after all, 
“imposed" by a government 
accountable to. Parliament 
which could scrutinise its 
workings more effectively if 
Unionist MPs would partici- 
pate in that scrutiny. 

Despite the public intransi- 
gence of the top ..Unionist 
leadership, there have been 
.‘welcome signs that at least 
some unionist leaders are now 
.more prepared to consider 
sharing local power without 
rigidly insisting on the 
cancellation of the agreement 
as a precondition for talks. But 
a number of new voices have 
also called for a unionist 
campaign in favour of North- 
ern Ireland’s full integration 
into the United Kingdom. 

Unionist politicians are

one reason for the withdrawal

But if they deckle to pursue j

- Anzus’s ‘little 
local difficulty’ 

re From Miss R. P. Heath 

Sir, Your leading article (May 2) 
id which accuses New Zealand of 
s_ elevating her non-nuclear policy 
a to the level of caprice is surely 
extraordinary for the blunt 
" .insensitivity of its timing? Even 
Y more remarkably, it was printed 
immediately below a leader con- 
n cerned with the Chernobyl disas- 
ar ter. 

j. You assume as a premise that 
$ New Zealand’s anti-nuclear view 
^ is a purely additndinal gesture. 

Thus, to insist on such a policy 
j absolutely, you say, “combines 
a eccentricity with indulgence”. On 
>t the contrary — since the policy is 
entirely pragmatic, even if its 
d support in some quarters becomes 

d emotional it is valueless as a 
s decision unless its effect in prac- 
1 . tice is indeed absolute. The policy 
is not aimed at self-expression, but 
5 at real-world result 
e The serious pollution shadow 
y from the Russian disaster is a little 

e larger than the United Kingdom, 
a ' So is New Zealand. One such 
j disaster could terminate the 

. promising life of a young country. 

In the circumstances — which 
a you point out — that New Zealand 
s has no need for nuclear power or 
5 nuclear weapons, is ft not ca- 

- pncioustoaskhertoacoeptsucha

1 From the High Commissioner for 

’ New Zealand 

Sir, The third leader you pub- 
» fished on May 2, under the title 

. “Anzus’s little local difficulty”, 

f included two errors about the 

. policy of the New Zealand Gov- 

' eminent on nuclear ship visits. 

The first is the implication that 
1 my Government is asking the 

United States and the United 
L Kingdom to declare whether or 

not one of fts vessels is carrying 
nuclear weapons. The Bin that is 
now before Parliament makes 
dear that the Prime Minister of 
New Zealand will decide whether 
a ship, that seeks to visit a New 
Zealand port is carrying nudear 
weapons, and bis decision will be 
based on New Zealand sources. 

The second error is the state- 
ment that the proposed legislation 
will enshrine the anti-nuclear 
policy in the country’s Constitu- 
tion. New Zealand does not have a 
written Constitution. The New 
Zealand Nudear Free Zone, 
Disarmament, and Anns Control 
Bill when passed, w ill become 
part of theiiody of New Zealand 
aw. as does any other piece of 
legislation passed by Parliament. 

You say that a collision on the 
issue is avoidable. Errors of this 
kind do not help to avoid one. 

Yours faithfully,

Brain drain 

From Mr Adrian Brasnett 
Sir, 1 was surprised to read in your 
report in today's Times (May 2) 
about the brain drain feeing 
British universities that you quote 
.the figure of £7,000 to £8,000 as 
the range of salaries for graduates 
entering academic posts. This is a 
very selective figure, based upon 
the salaries of those few graduates 
who obtain posts as research 
assistants, a job that involves 
departmental duties as weS as 
time to research for a higher 
. degree. 

The majority of graduates who 
start an academic career do so as 
-postgraduate students with a re- 
search council grant, currently 
worth £2,665 pa (£3,265 in Lon- 
don). This sum is calculated by 
multiplying up the value of a local 
education authority grant for 
undergraduates to cover a whole 
year, an amount which has been 
declining steadily .in real terms 
ova- the last few years, at a time 
when talented graduates have 
been commanding increasingly 
high salaries in other sectors. 

For postgraduates such as my- 
self and most of my colleagues the 
experience of living on such a 
pittance has made us acutely 
aware of the prospects we fece 
should we seek to continue our 
academic careers in this country, 
and it is certain that many of us 
Will be joining the brain drain out 
of the universities as soon as we 
complete our PhDs. 

Unless the research council 
grams are more closely linked to 
the salaries of other graduates 
there will be increasingly little 
attraction for graduates to even 
consider starting an academic , 
career. 

Yours faithfully, 

ADRIAN BRASNETT,

Single European Act 

Sir, You recently published a letter 
. (May 6 ) from Mr Peter Horsfield, 
QC and MrLeolin Price, QC. The 
heading you gave it, “Prospect of a 
European super-state,” neatly 
encapsulates the misapprehen- 
sions with which the authors 
frighten themselves and seek to 
frighten your readers. There is no 
such prospect It is absurd to think 
that the Prime Minister of all 
people would entertain one: t 

Rather, the Single European 1 

Act, which she agreed in Luxem- I 
bouig let December and which b < 
now being par to Parliament for 1 
approval introduces some limited i 

changes to the Treaty of Rome to j 


Maintaining loyalty to the Union 

From Professor Emeritus Thomas party — which may soon 
Wilson. FBA forming a new government — P 


Sir, Neither the disagreeable 
rhetoric of the Paisley: tes nor the 
indefensible violence should con- 
ceal the feet that many persons of 
moderate outlook in Northern 
Ireland feel affronted by tire 
Anglo-Irish Agreement, so insen- 
sitively imposed upon them. 
Some recent visits have left me in 
no doubt on that score. 

Loyalty to the Union cannot 
require tire unquestioning accep- 
tance even of a measure that will 
it is feared, gradually undermine 
the basis of that Union. Its 
supporters, wbo include many 
Catholics, have a right to express 
their concern. 

The guarantee of self- 
determination has been depre- 
ciated by the feet that the Republic 
is already there, able to exert its 
influence over the whole range of 
Ulster affairs at secret conferences 
from which all Ulster repre- 
sentatives are excluded. Even if 
there were to be a new Assembly, 
these conferences would still deal 
with npn-devolved matters, 
including security and the admin- 
istration of justice. With local 
people still excluded, this would 
be a recipe for alienation. A 
change is required. 

In order to understand the 
response to the guarantee, it must 
also be recalled that Ulster is 
already claimed to be, de hire, part 
of the Republic by Article 2 of its 
Constitution without regard for 
the wishes of its inhabitants. An 
appeal was made to this article by 
Hanna Fail in attacking the 
guarantee in the Dail where the 
Agreement was finally supported 
by only 88 votes to 75 last 
November. 

At the recent conference of this 


Chernobyl disaster 

From Dr J. C. Williams 
Sir, The news that helicopters 
have been used to drop sand, lead 
and boron- into the damaged 
nuclear reactor at Chernobyl 
would seem to imply that the 
installation did not include ade- 
quate safety precautions. A fire 
depressant and a neutron ab- 
sorber, both usually in the form of 
powdered materials, should be 
available on the site of a nudear 
reactor, with provison for blowing 
them into the reactor in an 
emeigentty. 

In particular the reaction should 
be stopped by flooding the reactor 
with powdered boron carbide if 
there is a danger that the reactor 
will go out of control In the case 
of the Chernobyl reactor the rise in 
pressure should have been used to 

GCSE standards 

From the Headmaster of Derby 
School 

Sir, Your correspondent, Mr 
RJ.Anderson (May 7), is some- 
what rash m drawing conclusions 
about GCSE standards from four 
sample questions from mathemat- 
ics papers. 

Considerable research has been 
undertaken into the requirements 
oftbe “users” - employers, further 
and higher education - of a 
mathematics qualification at 16-*-. 
In particular the Cockcroft report. 
Mathematics Counts (!982),.went 
very thoroughly into this question. 
Recommendations from the re- 
port form much of the GCSE 
criteria for mathematics and will, 
therefore, be incorporated in all 
courses leading to the new 
qualification. 

The examples quoted in your 
Spectrum artide (April 25) were 
from papers set for three different 
levels of attainment They are only 
typical in the sense mat they 
illustrate a different approach. 
They obviously do not represent 
the range of the syllabus for the 
courses nor the range of question 
length and complexity. These 
examinations attempt to find out 
what the candidate knows, not 
catch them out The application of 
mathematics is tested in realistic 
contexts to encourage a problem- 
solving approach. 

On the contrary 

From Dr Huw Griffiths 
Sir, As a retired general prac- 
titioner, I was most interested in 
Dr Richard Griffiths’s letter today 
(May 7) — no relation to me as for 
as 1 know). 

My mother and father came 
from the heart of what used to be 
Carmarthenshire and Cardigan- 
shire. When l have been back to 


ages on the tombstones have been 
those of early childhood, or of 
those surviving into their eighties 
or nineties. 

They literally lived off the fat of 
the land, and they were proud of 
the dairy produce they consumed 
(the Welsh bacon of the time was 
almost solid fet with only a streak 


improve the effectiveness of the 
European Community. 

In particular, and most help- 
fully for the achievement of 
British objectives in Europe, ft 
includes a commitment to break 
down by 1992 the barriers which 
still prevent British exports from 
taking full advantage of the huge 
European market, and it provides 
the means in achieve this objec- 
tive by specifying that votes in this 
area will, in future, be taken tty 
majority rather than tty unanim- 
ity. 

We send nearly half of our 
exports to the European Commu- 
nity but a true common market in 
goods and se vices does not yet 
exist. This means that we cannot 
freely provide the financial and 

insurance services in which we are 

market leaders; that our exporters 


party — which may soon be 
forming a new government — Mr 
Haughey demanded once more 
the convening of a constitutional 
conference to establish “a political 
entity which would embrace the 
whole island of Ireland” This 
attitude contributes nothing to 
goodwill and reconciliation. 

The British Government, for its 
part, should have stressed initially 
the need for full all-party support 
in the Dai!. It should also have 
insisted that no agreement of this 
kind could become effective until 
the Republic had altered its 
Constitution. In the event this 
issue, fudged in Dublin with such 
unhappy consequences for power- 
sharing in 1973/74, is being 
fudged again. 

Even at this stage it would be 
entirely proper for our own Gov- 
ernment to point out that the 
replacement of Article 2 — perhaps 
along the less imperialistic lines 
suggested by an all-party commit- 
tee in tbe Republic in 1967 — is 
one of the conditions necessary for 
the survival of the Agreement as 
an acceptable and workable mea- 
sure. 

Our standing abroad should not 
be damaged by thus asking for no 
more than is required by a 
minimum regard for consistency. 
A demarche of this kind would 
help to reassure tbe North by 
showing that the promise of self- 
determination is backed tty seri- 
ous intention.

Can we have assurances from 
the appropriate authorities that 
every nuclear reactor in this 
country is provided with adequate 
arrangements for suppressing the 
nudear reaction and fighting fires; 
and that the installations for the 
storage and movement of the 
powders used for these purposes 
have been properly designed so as 
to guarantee the introduction of 
these materials into the reactor in 
time to reduce the severity of the 
consequences of an aeddent?

ON THIS DAY 


MAY 12 1812 

Spencer Perceval (1762-J812) 
succeeded the Duke of Portland as 
prime minister in October. 1809. 

His assassin was a bankrupt 
named John Bellingham whose 
plea of insanity was rejected and 
who was hanged on May 18. The 
cry of “Burden for ever " refers to 
that MP's arrest which Perceval 
had authorized when he was 
attorney-general CVn this Day", 
April m 


[PRIME MINISTER] 
[ASSASSINATED] 

. . . Mr. PERCEVAL was mur- 
dered yesterday afternoon on his 
entrance into the lobby of the 
House of Commons. The following 
are such other particulars as 
acquire an interest from the fatal 
catastrophe with which they are 
connected. - - 

About a quarter past five Mr. 
PERCEVAL was entering the 
Lobby of the House of Commons, 
where a number of persons were 
w inding , when a who had a 
short time previously placed him- 
self in tbe recess of the door-way 
within the Lobby, drew out a small 
pistol, and shot Mr. PERCEVAL 
in the lower part of the left breast. 
The ball is supposed to have 
entered the heart. Mr. PERCE- 
VAL moved forwards a few falter- 
ing steps, nearly half way up the 
lobby, and was in the act of felling, 
when some persons slept forward 
and caught him. He was immedi- 
ately carried to the room of the 
SPEAKER’S Secretary, to the left . 
of tbe lobby, by Mr. W. SMITH,, 
Mr. BRADSHAW and another 
Gentleman. Mr. LYNN, the Sur- 
geon, in Parliament-street, was 
immediately sent for but on 
examining the wound, he consid- 
ered the case utterly hopeless. All 
that escaped Mr. PERCEVAL’s 
Ups previously to felling in the 
lobby, was “murder." or 
“murdered." He said no mote 
afterwards. He expired in about ten 
or twelve minutes after receiving 
the fetal wound. Several Members 
of both Houses of Parliament went 
into the room, while he was dying: 
among others, his brother. Lord 
ARDEN all of them appeared 
greatly agitated- There was very 
little effusion of blood from the 
wound, externally. His body was 
subsequently removed into the 
SPEAKER'S House. Lord FRAN- 
CIS OSBORNE, Lord 
OSSULSTON, and some others, 
were crossing the lobby at the 
moment of MHwinuto n . and 

were very near to Mr. PERCE- 
VAL. The deed was perpetrated so 
suddenly, that the man who fired 
the pistol was not instantly recog- 
nized by those in foe lobby but a 
person passing at the moment 
behind Mr. PERCEVAL seized the 
pistol, (which was a very small one) 
from the hand of the assassin, who 
retired towards a bench to foe left; 
be surrendered it without any 
resistance. Mr. GOODIFF. an 
Officer of tbe House, took hold of 
him. and asked if be were the 
villain who shot foe Minister. He 
replied. “I am the unhappy mam" 
but appeared quite undisturbed. It 
is said, that he added something 
about the want of redress of 
grievances from Ministers; but if 
he did say so, it was heard by very 
few. On searching him. a few 
pounds were found in his pockets, 
and some printed papers, copies of 
which he is said to have previously 
distributed among Members. He 
was taken to the bar of the House 
of Commons, and identified as tbe 
assassin. Another pistol, similar to 
that which be had fired, was taken 

from bis pocket in the House 

After an examination of various 
witnesses, among whom were 
Lords OSSULSTON and FRAN- 
CIS OSBORNE, General 
GASCOYNE, Mr. H. SUMMER, 
tbe Officers of the House, and 
several strangers, the man was folly 
committed to Newgate for trial. A 
hackney-coach was brought to the 
iron gates in Lower Palace-yard, 
but the crowd, which was at first 
composed of decent people, had 
been gradually swelled by a con- 
course of pick-pockets and foe 
lower orders, who mounted the 
coach, and were so exceedingly 
troublesome and even dangerous, 
that it was not deemed advisable to 
send him to Newgate in tbe 
manner intended. We heard with 
pain, repeated shouts of applause 
from foe ignorant or depraved part 
of foe crowd, as if they woe hailing 
some oppressed but innocent vic- 
tim; some of whom even mixed 
with their shouts, the cry of 
“Burdett for ever!” and attempted 
to open the opposite door of the 
coach, as if to give the murderer an 
opportunity of escape. A party of 
Life Guards arrived about this 
time, and formed a semicircle in 
Lower Palace-yard, fay which foe 
mob were kept more at a distance. 

It was however, thought more 
prudent to send him away by 
another outlet, and so avoid all 
confusion. He was therefore taken 
out by tbe Speaker’s entrance, and 
conveyed to Newgate. His name is 
Bellingham. He has been engaged 
in mercantile concerns at Liver- 
pool. and was recognised by Gener- 
als TARLETON and 
GASCOYNE, the Members for 
that place- He is about 5 feet 9 or 10 
inches in height, with rather a thin 
visage, a nose somewhat aquiline, 
and of genteel appearance. He has 
been a good dad about foe House 
of Commons during these few 
weeks, and dined several times in 
the coffee-room. . . .

The majority of British Muslims are 
of course first generation immigrants 
still with their British-born children 
just beginning to arrive at adulthood, 
what their young people feel and think 
is largely uncharted territory. 'Such 
indications as there are suggest that 
their religious faith Ires become a badge 
of identity and of psychological protec- 
tion against racialism and anti-Islamic 
prejudice, of which there is a good deal 
in the native British. To that extent the 
chauvinism of the native British has 
done Islam a favour, by unwittingly 
helping the transmission of the faith 
over tire first and most- important 
generation gap. British-born Muslims, 
when they come of age, are likely to 
prove for more homogeneous, having 
all been through the British state 
education system. Then, politically, 
they will be a force to be reckoned with. 

The test of a successful transition to a 
truly indigenous Muslim presence in 
Britain is likely to be still farther ahead - 
whether British-born, British edneatrri 
Muslims grow up ana marry according 
to Islamic law, and whether they raise 
their children in turn as Muslims. In the 
case of the two most notable immigra- 
tions in the recent past by a distinct 
religions minority in - Irish Catholics, 
and mid-European Jews- this process of 
adaptation was achieved by means of an 
intermediate stage, the establishment of 
stable community life of a rather self- 
contained son in a land of emotional 
and social ghetto.

The marriage took place on

including political life, on equal tenns. 

A distinctly British Islam, .completely 
acclimatized and comfortable with- its 
national identity, is probably therefore 
two generations away. The potential 
contribution to society of a such 
community which has successfully 
merged tire best of British cuknre and 
tire best of Islamic culture would be 
enormous. Islam is generally seen by 
British public opinion as a. primitive 
thing , but the British do not know tire 
origins of their own culture. It was tire 
Muslim world which preserved and 
developed the Greek uadi non of matire- 
matics, philosophy, and architecture 
when Europe was itself primitive: it is 
no a cadent that “algebra” is an Arabic 
word. Like Christianity, Mam encour- 
ages a climate of philosophical enquiry. 
So-called Islamic fundamentalism, 
dosed to development or criticism, is an 
unusual phenomenon in Muslim histo- 
ry, not the norm. 

Neverthekss aD forms of Islam, 
including those open to reason and to 
the stimulus of new ideas, face one 
specific difficulty m the course of 
adaptatmg to western culture. Much 
more than most contemporary Western 
religious systems, Islam is a public and 
political forth, designed to work proper- 
ly only in a society in which it is tire 
dominant social force. To become just 
one more Western reli&ous denomina- 
tion among many, aD of them fairly 
marginal to national fife, would be to 
loresometiungesseni^iotbechaikaer j 
of Islam. But it may be an unavoidable 
concession.

THE TIMES MONDAY MAY 12, 1986

Television 

Tenuous 
paradise 

In 3790 the mutineers of the 
Bomrij, led by Fletcher Chris- 
ten, haded on the minute 
island of Pitcairn. Today the' 
world's remotest permanently 
inhabited settlement exists on 
-some 50 of tltehr desceddehts — 

including a radio ham with an 
QBE. One of Fletcher's more 
-familiar descendants . is the 
Breakfast Time cook and deli- 
catessen-owner Glynn Christ- 
feav.

edition of World About I

island which had obsessed 
him, so he dawn with irritat- 
ing uuctuousness, Dor 30 years. 

Glynn. Christian's script, 
which was no stranger to lines 
like ^recipe for insurrection'*, 
hardly made one salivate at his 
prospective biography of Flet- 
•C cber. It was to toinplete this 
work that he . undertook the 
sooth.

from Tahiti with a crew faff of 
people called Jasmine and 
Vman did not seem quite the 
staggering feat he made it. It 
was also selectively' filmed. 

However, as soon as he 
landed, the programme be- 
came a different kettle of fish 
altogether. The meretricious 
historical element (Le. had 
Fletcher died here or not?) 
became edipsed by an absorb- 
ing account of the islanders 
and their tenuous paradise. 

Under the firm eye of Ted 
Cochran — and finely edited by 
Caroline Jndson — we were 
treated to some memorable 
sequences: notably the bring- 
ing of an injured captain to 
land through freacheroos seas 
and a goat- hunt contacted by

THE ARTS 


The BBC’s sensitivity to outside criticism seems now to be verging 
on destructive paranoia: Mark Lawson investigates cause and effect 

Just a word in the ear upstairs 


A serious disease has been 
diagnosed among' the higher 
management of ihe BBC. The 
symptoms include heavy 
sweating when viewing pro- 
grammes before transmission 
and a tendency to hear voices, 
particularly those ofMrs Mary 
Whitehouse and Mr Douglas 
Hurd. The symptoms' were 
first diagnosed in August of 
last year, following the deci- 
sion of the BBC governors not 
to transmit a documentary 
about Northern Ireland made 
fra* the Real Lives series; and 
have proved increasingly in- 
fectious. “1 call it Real Lives- 
ifls”, says one. BBC docu- 
mentary-maker.- ‘'Anything 
apparently anti-Thatcher, .in 
fact anything anti, any body or 
individual ‘ who might kick 
back; they start . twitching for 
the scissors.” 

Tbe producer cannot be 
named; one of the side-effects 
of the infection of the upper 
echelons is a terror among the 
lower orders about expressing 
dissent But his views are 
|. echoed elsewhere. A play- 
wright whose work was threat- 
ened with shelving, arid then 
amended, he alleges, without 


Graeme McDonald: 
found the 
slaughterhouse all 
too strong 


..his consent, says:’ “My impres- 
sion was that one's work was 
being carved up — by people 
from outside the drama de- 
partment — out of a mixture of 
philistinism and fear. I find 
the present atmosphere very 
worrying.” 

This sixth-floor twitch in ess 
. and its effect on staff morale is 
ihe flipside to the BBCs 
recent triumphs in ratings 
wars and awards ceremonies, 
"file decision, to -give “techni- 
cal redundancy” to the impor- 
tant BBC current . affairs 
journalist Roger Bolton is 
seen as the latest symptom.' 
Other recent victims of the 
diseaseare: 



Mary Whitehouse: 
can justifiably feel 
she is winning the 
censorship battle 



a Tm winning! I’m 
They're listening!". 

Well, are they? The reasons 
for this asbestos mentality 
among management are var- 
ied. The so-called Real Lives- 
itis is a major factor; burnt- 
fmgered, the BBC man- 
agement picks up tapes and 
scripts gingerly. The suspen- 
sion of two journalists from 
the series Rough Justice has. 
when combined with the Real 
Lives farrago, conspired to 
make six-part series on the 
sex-life of the golden eagle 
increasingly attractive to doc- 
umentary bosses. In terms of 
money expended for footage 
produced, investigative jour- 
nalism is expensive; any ex- 
cuse to reduce it is welcomed. 
There is also pre-Peacock fear; 
while awaiting die Professor's 
recommendations, it is vital, 
argues management, that the 
BBC “keeps its hands clean”. 
The "watch your backs” men- 
tality begins to exert a paralyz- 
ing hold. 

For programme-makers, the 
most painful aspect of the last 
few months has been the 
thorough muddle-headedness 
of the management reaction. 


I'm wianing! 


The Fishing Party, management required “clarification'’ before transmission 


who derided that a sequence 
depicting ihe- passage of a cow 
from grazing to gravy was “too 
strong for that time of night”. 
_ ~ _ , . _ . The edition was postponed 

• The -Fishing Party, a doca- . and then shown without - the 
memary produced by Paul slaughterhouse scene. 


; Watson for. tbe 40 Minutes 
series, was “referred upwards” 
to senior management bo- 
cause of queasiness about its 
depiction of four extreme 
right-wing apologists. Man- 
agement requested a “clari- 
fication” before transmission. 

• The fourth part of the BBC 
Wales ecological documentary 
series Far Front Paradise was 
referred to the Controller of 
BBC2, Graeme McDonald. 


. '• Song qf Experience, a film 
written by Martin' ABen. for 
the Screen Two series, was 
filmed in alternative versions, 
offering different degrees of 
expletives and explicitness. 
Bill Cotton, Managing Direc- 
tor, took the rare step of 
referral to the Director-Gener- 
al, Aiasdair Milne, which led 
to agreement to screening after 
“cleaning-up”. . 

• Deadhead, also suffered 


from an eleventh-hour frown 
from above. Cuts in sexually- 
explicit language and action 
were ordered by Graeme 
McDonald 

• A BBC Scotland hospital 
comedy. The Houseman's 
Tale, was sent back to its 
producer in the same week 
that transmission was an- 
nounced in Radio Times. No 
new date has been fixed 

• Are You a.Racisi ?. a film for 
the Horizon popular science 
series, also suffered cuts. An- 
other Horizon programme, 
about Aids and male sexual 
behaviour, is now expected 
never to be shown. 


Other, smaller, examples 
have led to a feeling in the 
affected parts of the BBC that 
tbe management's dusk raids 
— often last-minute, some- 
times after the first version 
has been screened to the Press 
and always attracting adverse 
publicity — smack less of 
responsible cutting and more 
of stricken guilt A Sunday 
repeat of a weekday edition of 
fEastEnders suddenly snips 30 
seconds from a suicide scene 
or, in a play, a copulaiory 
word beginning with "f” is 
switched for one beginning 
with "s” and Mrs Mary 
Whitehouse, the beacon of 
decency, might justifiably cry 


With television under threat 
of censorship by government 
they believe there is a need for 
a logical and organized re- 
sponse. The decisions taken to 
date seem insistently contra- 
dictory- In the eyes of Mrs 
Whitehouse, every act of cen- 
sorship. the more muddled 
and public the better, is an 
admission of guilt How she 
must relish the sight of the 
BBC hierarchy behaving like 
characters in indifferent thrill- 
ers who stammer “Look wher- 
ever you want constable" 
while inclining sideways to 
hide the bloodstain on the 
wall. 

The danger is that the bug 
may soon have entered the 
mental air-conditioning of 
most executives. We face the 
end of investigative television 
journalism, the death of the 
polemic, an unspoken requ- 
irment for BBC employees to 
leave their teeth at the door. 
As one programme-maker 
says: “The producer kept say- 
ing we'd got away with more 
than he’d expected. But pro- 
ducing programmes shouldn't 
be about seeing what you can 
smuggle through customs.” 


At a time wnen one of the Royal 
Ballet’s leading dancers, Anthony 
DowelL is about to become the 
company's artistic director, the two 
leading ..French choreographers, 
Maurice B6jart and Roland Petit, 
have just put their names tea long 
letter, splashed boldly across half a 
page, in Le Figaro, declaring that 
star dancers are' quite the wrong 
[ people to run ballet companies: 

Tbe letter, printed with an 
introduction by the paper’s arts 
editor and former dance critic, 
Claude Baigngrcs, is seen in Paris 
Tessas an artistic manifesto than as 
a move in a power-struggle follow- 
ing the recent French elections. 
People familiar, from innumerable ■' 
programme notes and other writ- 
ings, with Bejarfs flamboyant and 
dramatic prose style find it difficult 


Rudolf Nureyev, the Paris Optra’s ballet director, is under fire from rival choreographers 
in a typically French media battle of topsyturvydom: John Percival reports

Shakespeare 

Opera 

National Studio 

Bloomsbury Theatre 

The audacity Of starting an 
evening of short-staged oper- 
atic extracts with the opening 
scene and duet from Don 
Giovanni is typical of the 
National Opera Studio. Typi- 
cal too was tbe immedi 
intensity of dramatic focus, a 
quality which characterizes 
the end-of-ierm showcases of 
this finishing school- and 
which generated within sec- 
onds a real- taste of omnipres- 
ent evil for The Turn of the 
Screw. 

The young trainees, of 
course, have eiyoyed a full 
academic year of meticulous 
in-depth grooming in every 
detail of stagecraft and inten- 
sive musical coaching. .As 
usual, it showed m vigorously 
paced recitative, assurance of 
idiom and minute attention to 
movement and gesture: And 
they were helped no end by 
Michael McCaffery’s stylish 
stage direction and David 
Parry’s pertinent support in 
the pit. 

But it is not the year of the 
potential megastar. Ctf the 
statutory 12 trainees, few this 
time round have real sharp- 
ness or vocal profile or truly 
memorable stage presence. It 
is. however, the year of the 
bass. 1 shall look forward to 
following the career of Clive

hack job' put together for them, it, 
undoubtedly represents their antip- 
athy to Rudolf Nureyev as ballet 
director. Petit fell out with Nure- 
yev after the latter had danced wiih 
Petit's “Marseille company in New 
. Voile a few years back, following a 
quarrel variously, ascribed to 
: Nureyev’s interpretation of Petit's 
choreography and his partner's 
ambition to call the choreographer, 
on stage quickly enough to share'’ 
the applause. . 

Bejarfs quarrel with Nureyev is 
more recent and more public. As 
reported last month. Bijart went 
on stage after tie performance of ^ 


. his two leading" men. When tbe 
Opera pointed, out that he had no 
authority for this, be went on 
\ television and denounced Nureyev 
in terms like a cross between 
I Accuse and Phantom of the 
Opera. That provoked an official 
statement by the Optra’s adminis- 
tration referring to a psychological 
crisis and expressing hopes for a 
speedy recovery. 

The renewed and combined, 
attack calls for a national inquiry 
info how the Opera should be run. 

’• The argument pul forward is that, 
since the years of. Rolf Lieber- 
^. : manh’s administration, the inter- 

... . one of his ballets at the Paris Opera "..nal condition.; and artistic prestige... 

: Hpw(ryer,Heven if foe letter is a - ' And announced the promotion o£; of ; the nationaTballet company at 


the Opera has declined under three 
successive directors. To an outsid- 
er, that looks like tbe exact 
opposite of the truth. 

It was during Rosella High- 
tower’s period as director that one 
began to see real progress, which 
has accelerated under Nureyev. By 
bringing forward the rich talent 
among the younger dancers, and by 
introducing a far more varied and 
interesting repertory, Nureyev has 
brought the company to a level 
where his claim that the dancers 
are the best in the world today 
would find wide assent. In that 
context,, tbe argument by B6jart 
and Petit that a star dancer must 
inevitably be too preoccupied with 


his own career to take care of the 
development of other dancers 
looks rather silly. 

It is in any case a surprising 
claim from two men each of whom 
began as star dancer and choreogra- 
pher and director of his own 
company, and neither of whom 
could easily stay off stage even after 
he had ostensibly retired. Many 
would argue that Petit's best period 
was the youthful one when he was 
most fully stretched. 

. What is perhaps surprising is the 
extent to which leading dancers are 
taking over the world's ballet 
companies. New York City Ballet 
and American Ballet Theatre, the 
Royal Danish Ballet, the. Austra- 


lian Ballet and the National Ballet 
of Canada all made that choice. 
Nearer home. London Festival 
Ballet under Peter Schaufuss has 
progressed to the point where it is 
able to offer the Royal Ballet a 
serious artistic challenge. 

Among them all. Nureyev is the 
one who has achieved the most 
spectacular results. He had the 
advantage of a good foundation: 
one of the best ballet schools in the 
world to supply his dancers, a 
realistic budget, a personal experi- 
ence wider and more varied than 
any rivaL A somewhat impatient 
personality and a willingness to 
back his own judgement of young 
dancers' potential have ruffled 
feathers but are also factors in the 
quick results he obtained. 

To see his period at the Opera 
described as one of decline is like 
living in a world turned upside- 
down. But French politics, espe- 
cially French anistic politics, are 
too often seen like that. 


Theatre 

Double Cross 

Royal Court . 

It is a deeply intriguing coinci- 
dence that Brendan Bracken, 
Churchill's wartime Minister 
of Information, and William 
Joyce, who performed a not 
dissimilar role for the other 
side undU the nickname of 
“Lord Haw-Haw", were both 
expatriate Irishmen who 
strove to bury all irace'of titeir 
rational origins. In Double 
Cross , the latest production of 
the Derry-based Held Day 
Company, Thomas Kiiroy at- 
tacks this joint conundrum by 
examining the two lives for 
tbe light each casts on the 
other. 

As there is no evidence that 
Bracken and -Joyce ever met, 
Mr Kilroy resorts to a parallel 
enquiry in the form of two 
virtually self-con rained plays, 
with each hero absorbed in bis 
own -affairs while obsessively 
aware of the career of his 
opposite number. Bracken lis- 
tens to German radio and 
hears himself described as 
“that well-known poseur and 
parasite”: while Joyce keeps 
abreast of Bracken's ffibraie- 
boosling. warnings against 
“Tiuie-Taule Tom” and' 
“Rodney Rumour”. 

One point that emerges- with 
absolute clarity is that Brack- 
en and Joyce present a grand- 
scale example of the Irish 
tradition of shedding their 
oppressed status by becoming 
more English than the English. 
In their case the masquerade 
went beyond the usual social 
and artistic conquests into foe 
world of political power. - 
For Mr Kilroy. I Suspect, 
this would rank as a cliche 
unworthy of restatement At 
all events, he dwells hardly at 
all on tbe Irish background 



Stephen Rea’s vividly imagined' and unrecognizable doable 
- _act, as Brendan Bracken (left) and Will jam Joyce 


arfd concentrates on foe 
present actions of “two men 
who invented themselves”. 
We see Bracken juggling whh 
two telephones as he coaxes 
London hostesses and news- 
paper-owners to dance to his 
tune. We see Joyce likewise 
exercising long-distance infltt- 
ence from his Berlin radio 
studio. - We see ' both men 
giving their women a hard 
time: .Bracken rejecting his 
girlfriend even when she is so 
kind as to dress up as a Boy 
Scout, and Joyce beating up 
his wife when she confesses to 
an affair. There is. also 
Bracken's _ criminal brother 
who haunts him with black- 
mailing demands; and tbe 
suggestion is lodged that this 
figure also stands for Joyce. 

However, no clear pattern 
takes shape from the accumu- 
lated- parallels; feast of all the 
idea that social play-acting in 
some way leads to fascism and 
treason. And- one is left with 
the feeling that, if there is any 
answer to foe enigma, it is to 


be found in . Ireland, not in 
wartime Berlin or the office of 
Lord Beaverbrook. 

Jim Sheridan’s production 
is extremely proficient in en- 
compassing a long character 
list and frequent changes of 
location with three.actors and 
a back-projection screen. The 
overwhelming reason for see- 
ing ffie show is supplied by 
Stephen Rea. wbo achieves a 
vividly imagined and unrec- 
ognizable transformation be- 
tween foe two protagonists. 
His chestnut-haired Bracken, 
squelching Oxbridge vowels 
like over-ripe fruit, is a buf- 
foon- with a core of steel; his 
Joyce, sporting a Brixton duel- 
ling scar, a fanatic of perverse 
intelligence with unlooked-for 
powers of affection. Their 
joint meaning may remain 
undisclosed but separately 
they are alive. Kate O’Toole 
and Richard Howard dispatch 
foe supporting rotes with re- 
sourcefulness and precision.

Festival Hall 

Wafted there by gentle spon- 
sorship from Chanel, the 
Philhannonia are drifting in 
spirit to France for the next 
■week in a .series of concerts 
“Aprts L’Aprts-Midi” Per- 
haps Simon Rattle, who con- 
• duct$- all five evenings, 
sdthewhat overstates foe case' 
in suggesting that French mu- 
sic is unduly negl«raL It is, 
after all, the subject of the 
R oyal P hilharmonic Society's 
current season, and - of the 
Bath Festival soon to begin. 
But still the chance to hear 
him in some of bis favourite 
repertory is not to be missed. 

We began, of course, with 
Debussy's prelude to Mailar- 
me, a little stiffly played, 
though foe piece is next to 
impossible to make work in 
the concert halL But that is 
emphatically not the case with 
Iberia, which closed the con- 
cert in fine style. Mr Rattle 
.kept themovement strong and 
pitnrposeful through all his 


of colour pointed the history 
of the work back through 
Pierrot lunaire (something she 
must do some day) to cabaret, 
but the final enigmatic sonnet 
really ought to be a long way 
.on from there.

LSO/Hickox 

Barbican 


Elgar's perception of an artist 
.as Somebody set apart from 
others found its most direct 
expression in his choral ode 
The Music Makers, with its 
mixture of heroic optimism 
and nostalgic regret in tbe 
setting of a poem by Arthur 
O’Shaughsessy and its wealth 
of musical self-quotation. 
Richard Hickox conducted an 
eloquent performance of it at 
the London Symphony Orch- 
estra's conceit on Saturday 
night, which was also by way 
ot heralding the work's forth- 
coming first new recording in 
almost 20 years. 

It will have, as here. Felicity 
Palmer as tbe contralto solo- 
ist, gloriously secure and 
forthright in her singing on 
. _ . - . . this occasion, as much in her 

riianges of texture Mtd speed, * incandescent tfiumination of

Masterson/ 

Johnson 

Wigmore Hall 

T wo encores. *’ Depuis le jour" 
from Charpentier's Louise 
and *’A brown bird singing”, 
went to the very heart of the 
matter. London has waited 
long enough for Valerie 
Masterson's recital and recital 
record. They arrived together 
at the weekend with almost 
identical programmes, and 
gave the Masterson following 
all it warned; foe warm, 
sensuous “Diva de l'Empire” 
on the one hand, and foe fresh, 
milk-and-roses English par- 
lour lass oo foe other. 

England first Miss Mas- 
1 risen turned to Arne. Handel 
and Henry Bishop to warm up 
and. with the help of Graham 
Johnson (piano) and Richard 
Adeney (flute), dallied “Under 
the greenwood tree" and rose 
with the gentle lark. Her 
instinctive phrasing and fault- 
less caniabile can have a 
tendency to stand in for any 
highly particularized or indi- 
vidual response. And. when 


top notes are regularly squee- 
zed as if something were 
always being held in reserve, it 
does make for a somewhat 
trying flatness of timbre. Be- 
fore foe interval it seemed as if 
the golden mean were alk a 
sunny impassiveness hovered, 
and one longed for a different 
lint a particularly in foe little 
grief-stricken Paisiello aria. 

Gounod got her going. 
There was much to enjoy in 
foe way she bound together 
foe noctural language of 
“Absent" into long, warm 
lines, and in the vocalise 
which shadowed her Victor 
Hugo “Sere". Bizet's domestic 
narative sprung to sprightly 
life in his "Vieille Chanson”, 
and Satie's “Diva” found her 
equal. 

One hesitates to carp at such 
affectionately idiomatic artist- 
ry: but foe Gallic muse would 
have smiled more broadly if 
Miss Masterson had not been 
quite so laid back about her 
vowels: "pair for “pale”, to 
cite just one example, is 
pardonable once,. but twice is 
simply careless. 

Hilary Finch 


tously dear yet soft detail in 
the central section to a sharp 
final crack, foe music snapped 
out of sight just where another 
composer would have been 
launching his coda. 

Within the Debussy miter 
layers, there were song trip- 
tych* • by Ravel, and . at foe 
centre Boulez's Ritueh by far 
the most un-Debussian of this 
composer’s scores. It is also 
the most over-played, certain- 
ly by the standard of what it 
has Co say, which is not very 
much, and all of that gloomy. 
There was some piquancy in 
hearing the vagaries of the 
unfixed timing produce a 
.close in C minor for four 
violins at one point, but that 
'was a modest return. Tbe 
British premiere of one of 
Barraduf s works would have 
been a far more festive catch. 

But foe Ravel was interest- 
ing. Maria Ewing’s cool in 
Shehfrazade was wonderfully 
illuminating, revealing “Asie” 
as the indolent dream of 
someone who has no intention 
of travelling further east than 
foe Marais (Mr Rattle's exqui- 
sitely nonsensical conducting 
of foe Chinese episode was in 
foe same vein), and showing 
that foe-title of “L'lndifferent” 
can apply as much to the girl 
in foe doorway as to foe youth 
who passes by. Tbe song was 

donees if with an eroiicsbrug, 

and, if that , meant a slithery 
approach, to pitches and note- 
values. if was hard to object. 

The MalJarra£ songs, 
though, are more difficult to 
take ibat wav. Miss Ewing's 
freedom and her wide swerves 


depart” as in her great cry of 
welcome to those “from the 
dazzling unknown shore” who 
will show, foe future. The 
London Symphony Chores, 
uncommonly buoyant of tone 
in sopranos and tenors, re- 
sponded with a brightness that 
needed only some further 
feeling for the deeper spirit of 
the words. 

Mr Hickox conducted with 
a sensibility to music and text 
that came close to the heart of 
the work, and began to gener- 
ate foe requisite warmth of 
character from the moment 
the cellos sang their theme in 
the mtrodution. This hall is 
not kind to music that de- 
pends so much on balance and 
perspective, often fudging 
what should be our focus of 
attention, but there were mo- 
ments of sadness and splen- 
dour to reflect that “each age 
is a dream that is dying, or one 
that is coming to birth”. 

In. the first part of foe 
programme a breezy but disci- 
plined account ctf Weber’s 
Oberon Overture was followed 
by Ida HaendeTs serenely 
poised performance of Men- 
delssohn'S Violin Conceno. 
She was over-indulgent with 
portameml in foe first move- 
ment particularly, but she 
spun a beautiful thread of soft 
tone when required as well as 
tacking nothing in more extro- - 
vert technique; The orchestral 
playing -was a model of style 
and discernment ’ in support- 
ing her.

the terraces as oe the pitch. 

The final was monitored 
closely by European football 
authorities, who decided again 
last week not to allow English 
dabs back into their competi- 
tions as part of the continuing 
punishment for the Heysel 
disaster in which 39 spectators* 
died as a result of rioting by 
Liverpool Ians. 

Yesterday as the teams 
returned to a welcome from at 
least 501MHN) people lining the 
streets, the words of the police 
officer in charge of seonity 
arrangements at Wembley 
were welcomed. Chief Supt 
Graham Dark said: “They 
were a good-fanmonred crowd. 
I wish all football Ians be- 
haved that way." 

There were jast 51 axTests in 
a crowd of 100,000, and those, 
according to Scotland Yard, 
were for public order offences. 
None were of a serious nature. 

The ho m ecoming was for 
removed from Oe crestfallen 
return of supporter* who had 
been at the European Cap 
Final »« ggh»«* Javeatns. 

There had been strenuous 
efforts to promote Saturday's 
game as the “friendly final". 
Both teams appeared together 
in photographs under the label 
“Merseyside United**, a slo- 
gan which was chanted loudly 
by large sections of the crowd 
after QrerpooTs victory. 

Both teams travelled hack to 


Liverpool on the same char- 
tered aircraft, and made an 18- 
mile tear of the city h two 
open-topped bases, after a 
civic reception at the airport 

Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool's 
player-manager, summing up 
the reaction to the behaviour 
of the fans, said: “Their 
behaviour has been better than 
ever this season. It just does 1 
not stand op to think English 
dobs should be banned from 
Enrope for another season." 

Since the twin tragedies of 
Brussels and Bradford last 
season, which prompted prime 
ministerial interest in anting 
football hooliganism, there 
have been successes. The De- 
partment of the Environment 
said that arrests at First 
Division grounds were down 
by 30 percent, and at the two 
Liverpool dubs arrests this 
season totally only 69, com- 
pared with 213 fast year. 

The police say that a combi- 
nation of spectator disgust at 
the events of Heysel, new 
alcohol regulations and the 
Installation of doscd-drcuit 
television cameras at die 
ground bare all played apart. 

The figures win be present- 
ed as a sign of better (hues for 
football when the liaison offi- 
cers from all police forces with 
First Dirisioo football dobs in 
their areas meet in Bbming-

the contamination around the 
reactor is so high that this 
promise could remain unreal- 
ized for many years. 

In the meantime, techni- 
cians in special protective 
Clothing wiU have to maintain 
a permanent round-the-clock 
watch to prevent any danger 
to the other three reactors. 

Last night. Mr Ivan Sflayev, 
a first deputy chairman of the 
Praesidium of the Council of 
Ministers, said about die latest 
progress in the complex dean- 
up operation: “The great ca- 
tastrophes predicted in the 
West have not happened. 
Today, we are sure that the 
danger bag mkM althoug h 
this does not mean that our 
work is over." As the official 
death toQ in the disaster, 
doubled from' two to four, 
Western experts predicted that 
the final toD of Soviet casual- 
ties would be substantially 
higher than feared because 
bureaucratic delays left some 
40,000 Ukraine residents ex- 
posed to high radiation levels 
for a week longer than origi- 
nally thought. 

The admission of the new 
casualties was first made in a 
West German magazine inter- 
view by Mr Valentin Fafin, 
head of the. official Novosti 
neWs agency. 


A local official told me about the dark 
“secrets some, of the villages in the 
harbour area. “They have a tot to hide,” 
he said, “and won’t tef.you stay.” I had 
two weeks in which to provehim wrong. 

The villagers had informed me that 
the. quartets they had allocated to me 
.would be needed for“oither things” after 
. a fortnight. This, I knew, was the pretext . 
they would use if they wanted to be rid 
.of me. I would be there on approval: ■ 

. My traydshad already taught me that 
mountain villages don't take kindly to 
outsiders, they feel they have good 
reason to mistrust them. In the past 
strangers haves often turned out. to .be : 
conquerors who carac to pillage and to 
rape, or traders who came to cheat and 
to exploit, or .officials who came to 
extort taxes or bribes. 

The official, who told me how - 
inhospitable: the villagers were was 
trying to deter me from settling down 
among them. lt was the villagers who 
were the villains, he main rained, not 
outsiders. Men would sometimes sell 
their women to brothel-keepers who, he . ; 
said, came from the cities in search of 
recruits. Drunkenness was endemic and 
pernicious. The Government had im- 
posed prohibition, but illicit brewing 
was rife and brought other crimes in its . 
wake. The forests were full of poachers 
with unlicensed guns. Child marriage, 
though forbidden, was common. 
“That,” he explained, “is why they 
don't want any strangers around.” ’ _ 

All these things did Happen, as I kne w 
from my own experience in the hills, but 
they were by no means as common as he 
claimed. The village I. was making for 
when 1 met him had been recommend- 
ed to me as a poor but happy 
community, upright and law-abiding, u 
villagers did sometimes find themselves 
on the wrong side of the law,T tokUrim, 
it was because they were poor and 
ignorant “You foreigners always think 
that,” be retorted. “You’re always taken 
in by hardrluck stories.” 

The road into the mountains ended 
abruptly in a village at the bottom of the 
valley. From there, the path .rose, gently 
at first, and then more and more 
steeply. Sometimes it was just a narrow - 
ledge zig-zagging up an almost sheer 
rockface, sometimes a 6ft-wide track 
hacked out of the mountainside. Finally 
the path entered a dark pine forestland - 
then emerged from it to bring the village 
into view. The ascent, counting thehans 
to recover one’s breath — and to admire 
the view — had taken nearly four hours. ' 
The old headman, now retired, whom 


I had met on my frrat visit, wdc omed 
me graciously, but with just' enough 
. reserve to make it dear that I had not 
yet been fully accepted. 1 was on iriaL 
ami on my best behaviour r- which 
meant that I would have to curb my 
urge to ask the villagers how they 
. managedto eke out a livingJinthese 
harsh mountains. Even innocent ques- 
tions might seem suspect arid would put 
them on their guard.

The lack Of privacy is for me ifcemost

must learn to accept it <md, even more 
important, to understand it Most of the 
village's 70 familie s are dosefy : related.

Nature Notes 


Mixed .flocks of swallows, 
house martins and swifts are 
feeding over reservoirs: they 
climb and swoop rapidly as the 
insects are carried up and down 
by the wind. Cockoo6 are back, 
and caning loudly: many fe- 
males defend a large territory, 
where they can find p l enty of 
other birds' nests to lay their 
eggs in. The males, (who give the 
‘’cuckoo’’ call), wander more 
freely. Over reed-beds and 
osiers, the air is foil of sedge 
warblers, fluttering up in brief 
song-flights. Whitethroats also' 
fling themselves into the air and 
sing briskly above the green 
hawthorn hedges; lesser white- 
throats give their rattling call

US NOTEBOOK 


Fears of 
Japanese 
exodus 

From Maxwell Newton . . 

New York 

The Group of Seven summit 
hi Tokyo might never have 
happened, judging by the reac- 
tion of the US financia l 
markets. 

The refusal of (he Eteope-: 
ans to discuss then- agriadtmr- 
ai policy and the refhsal of the 
West Germans to consider 
farther interest rale cuts left 
the Americans with no tangi- 
ble successes to bring home. 

Talk of joint currency inter- 
vention and co-ordination of 
economic policies when there 
is such a maelstrom of name] 
rushing electronically around 
the world every day is seen as 
evidence of old-fashioned 
thinking by politicians. . . 

Each day there are now 
some 300 billion foreign ex- 
change transactions in New 
York, enough to swamp com- 
pletely any feasible centra! 
bank action. 

The yen has reached a 
record of IdS to the dollar and 
has all the marks of going up 
farther. There is no Indication 
tint the US authorities have 
the slightest intention of doing 
anything about it- The yen has 
appreciated almost 50 pa- cent 
since the September 1985, a 
stunning reversal of the previ- 
ous years. 

Tbe American bond mar- 
kets are extremely nervous 
about tbe currency trends as 
die Japanese' provided the 
foods to finance about one 
third of the $200 billion 
federal budget deficit in fiscal 
1985 (endedAprfl 1986). 

Fjeais that die Japanese 
may abandon the US bond 
markets have driven the 30- 
year bond yield up from 7.13 
per cent on April 15 to almost 
7.5 per cent today. 

As the Japanese hove suf- 
fered appalling currency 
losses and the yield gap 
between longer-dated US and 
Japanese issues has fatten 
from about 400 basis points to 
under 200 in foe past four 
months, foe incentive for foe 
Japanese to look elsewhere is 
increasing. 

The hope is that the yen’s 
rise against foe dollar b 
ending, so encouraging foe 
Japanese tote the US financial 

foe 

peeled to lead to foe long 
downtrend in US interest rates 
continuing, once foe trauma of 
last week's $27 bflfion Trea- 
sury bond auction is eat of foe 
way. A big downward revision 
of the first quarter &2 percent 
real GNP growth is expected 
to be announced oo Tuesday of 
next week, perhaps to as little 
as 1.5 per cent 
Indications are that the 
second-quarter number might 
be worse than the first quarter, 
raising foe possibility of aero 
growth in foe second quarter. 

The Federal Reserve is, 
understandably, in a state of 
coafosion. A too-easy domes- 
tic monetary policy may en- 
courage the ultimate night- 
mare of a run on the dollar, 
while a ton-tight policy may 
precipitate a recession.

prompt rate cuts 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


• Anew round of internation- 
al interest rate cuts, led by 
Japan, and good inflation 
news this week should open 
foe way for an early cut in 
British base rates. 

- The Japanese authorities, 
having faded to secure .foe 
cooperation of tbe other major 
'countries in stabilizing the 
yen, and having intervened in 
foe markets- done to little 
effect, may be forced to cut 
interest rates a g ftwi to steady, 
their currency. 

.According to a report from 
Greeawefl Montagu, pub- 
lished yesterday, Japan will 

lake a lead m reducing interest 

rales because of the damage 
being inflicted on foe econo- 
my by the yen’s strength. 

The yen was at 162 against 
the dollar on Friday with 
widespread expectations of a 
firm break through tbe 160 
level this weefe

be published today, an ex- 

rawmaterialand fedcrats^.. 
by 2 to 3 per cent last month, to 


about 10 per emit down on the 
level of a year earlier. 

The retail prices index, to be 
published on Friday, is expect- 
ed to show that foe rate of 
inflation fell by as much as a 
point, to 32 per cent last 
month. • 

- Greeawefl Montagu says: 
“Real interest rates in the UK 
remain very high internation- 
ally. The UK will respond 
quickly to any fell in interna- 
tional interest rates.” 

Uoyds Bank's International 
Financial Outlook, published 
today, says- that despite foe 
rhetoric offoe Tokyo summit, 
international economic co- 
operation may have run its 
course since foe Plaza agree- 
ment of last September.

businesses to take out profes- 
sional^ indemnity insurance. 

Tins follows Jast week’s 
concession to the self-regula- 
tory- organizations (SRO’s), 
which will be largely responsi- 
ble for policing authorized 
businesses. . 

It gave them immunity 
against negligence actions for 
damages which are bought by 
their own members or inves- 


tors. The immunity does not, 
however, protect individual 
members of an SRO who will 
remain vulnerable to legal 
actions brought by investors. 

The Government is under- 
stood to be concerned that this 
right of action wfll not always 
provide sufficient redress for 
investors who have lost mon- 
ey through the negligence of 
an authorized business. 

It therefore wants autho- 
rized bostoesses to be required 
to out insurance against 
their own negligence, and a 
satisfactory compensation

John Lewis set to expand 


By Derek Bams, Industrial Editor 


• John Lewis Partnership, the 
staff-controlled department 
stores a and supermarkets 
group, is planning su b s tanti al 
expansion especially of its 
department store operation, 
including two new stores and 
extensions for others. 

New Waitrose supermar- 
kets .are also planned. In its. 
wwrral report, just out, Mr 
Peter Lewis, chairman, says: 
“The partnership has a con- 
siderable programme at build- 
ing development in the years 
ahead.” - 

With this in prospect foe 
partnership, which at foe last 
year-end had borrowings ' of 
only 7 per emit of share capital 
and reserves, secured mtenia- 

tVmal funding in March hy 
launching a £50 ntjBioii 
Eurosterfing 20-year bond. 

The partnership intends to 
keep its department store de- 


velopments to in-town sites 
even though an increasing 
somber of competitors ^are 

policy that inner cities must be 
retained as farnfag centres for 
their -populations. - 
There are -21 department 
- sto r e s in. foe group. Sour of 
than having beat added in 
this decade. Its Peterborough 
outfit, with about! 00,000 sq ft 
• of seQhm space, was opened in 
1982. The other three, at 
Welwyn in Hertfordshire, 
Norwich and Bristol, were 
existing stores which were 
purchased. 

. the nextnew store triB be at 
Kingston upon Thames, Sur- 
rey, at arinsslde development 
that is ex pected to include 
some other retail outlets, of- 
fices and possibly a pubtic 
house as well as extensive car 


parking. It is expected to be 
trading by 1990. 

When the new department 
store developments are com- 
pleted foe partnership will 
have more than 50 per cent 
extra floor space compared 
with 1981. 

There are 89 Waitrose su- 
permarkets, foe latest having 
opened earlier this year at 
Dorchester, Dorset. Two more 
are expected to open at Har- 
row Weald in Greater London 
and Bnckhurst HilL Essex, 
tins year.' Another five are 
planned for next year. 

• Dissenting family share- 
holders in Bentilb. the stores 
group, are pressing for an 
urgent meeting with their 
trustees over a plan to redevel- 
op tbe group’s Kingston upon 
Thames site in a £ll0 million 
deal with Norwich Union in- 
surance company 


er, should have its price fixed 
in relation to world coal prices 
and that future contracts will 
be short-term to allow more 
price flexibility. 

The electricity consumer 
bodies have calculated that if 
coal contract prices fall in liae 
with foe world oil price then 
savings at foe power station 

could mean cats of about 6 per 
cent in domestic users’ elec- 
tricity bills. 

Industry representatives are 
also due this week to tell 
British Coal that they feel coal 
prices are not following oil 
prices down fast enough. 

The chemical industry, the 
second biggest user of Bntish- 
mined coal, is to meet British 
Coal to discuss the subject 

The electricity industry has 
said that any price saving h 
can secure from British Coal 
will be passed on to the 
consumer, not to the 
Exchequer. 


I Spending 
rise lifts 
engineers 

By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

Britain's civil engineering 
industry, encouraged by extra 
spending on roads and a 
government promise of more 
infrastructure spending, is in 
its best state for years, with tbe 
propor ti on of firms without 
work having fallen to a new 
low of 8 percent- 
while the rise in overall 
activity is marginal, Mr Derek 
GauKer, director-general of 
the Federation of Civil Engi- 
neering Contractors, said foe 
results of the organization's 
latest workload survey gave 
cause for some “rapture”. 

Levels of new work and 
repair and maintenance work 
were expected to remain stable 
which, m comparison with the 
gloom of previous surveys, 
was interpreted by tbe federa- 
tion as “a sign of optimism,** 
be said. 

After a year marred by a 
significant decline in the value 
of new civil engineering or- 
ders. foe latest optimism may 
be based only on recent re- 
ports of the need for more 
spending on roads, water and 
sewerage systems. 

The federation said, howev- 
er, the recent Public Sector 
White Paper confirmed in- 
creases in planned spending 
and that tbe Department of 
Transport had announced the 
intention to dear the backlog 
of repair work on the trunk 
road and motorway system by 
the early 1990s. 

The federation added: 
“Equally, the private commer- 
cial and industrial sectors are 
currently booming”. 

In tbe coming year, 56 per 
cent of the 182 civil engineer- 
ing companies covered by tbe 
smvey expected new orders to 
remain steady and 70 per cent 
predicted that tbe same would 
be true for repair and mainte- 
nance work. This was seen as a 
marked improvement on pre- 
vious surveys and an indica- 
tion of better times to come. 

On the employment front, 
the federation said it was 
disappointed that more firms 
were now shedding labour 
than were recruiting.

Terrorist fears hit US roadshows

Taking a charitable view, 
foe managers point out that 
cancellations can happen at 
any time. However, the recent 
torrent of apologetic messages 
has led many to believe that 
foe events hi Libya have had 
more than a passing influence. 

Curiously, the American 
brokerage houses in London 
deny there has been any spate 
of cancellations. Spokesmen 
-at “Merrill Lynch,. - Drexei - 
Burnham Lambert and Mor- 
r-n ftif.LT Ix't'ATCT form 


reported only two stay-at- 
homes, of whom just one was 
linked to political events. 

One or two other US com- 
panies had the courage to 
admit that they cancelled their 
plans “in view of rising inter- 
national tensions and the 
dangers which may affect 
travelling Americans”. 

However, there are also 
those that have pleaded other 
reasons 

In foe midst of such faint- 
heartedness, however, there 
are signs that the American 
blend of free enterprise and 
bravery still exists — one 
company has been contacting 
investment managers to say 
its executives have no fears 
about coming to. Europe and 
-woukl be happy to nil any 
broken lunch date*. 


No wonder the foreign exchange 
markets are jumpy. Last week’s 
economic summit presented them 
with a bizarre contrast. The owners of 
the world’s most important currencies 
publicly preached enhanced coopera- 
tion, based on ‘‘surveillance’' and 
“indicators”. Not-very-privately, they 
created maximum uncooperative 
confusion by disagreeing about ex- 
change rates. 

There was a time when this contrast 
would not have been so marked: when 
almost tbe only thing on which central 
bankers were agreed was the need to 
keep their intentions unclear. Since 
last year, however, governments have 
espoused another faith, smoothly 
articulated by finan ce ministers in 
Tokyo: that the stabilizing influence 
of central bank cooperation was only 
felt if the markets knew what govern- 
ments were trying to do. Hence the 
deliberate publicity given to the Plaza 
agreement of the Group of Five 
finance ministers last September. 

The Group of Five had reason to be 
pleased with the outcome of the Plaza 
agreement Its January meeting pro- 
duced less dear-cut results, but did 
lead to successive interest rate cuts 
which was something more than a 
coincidence. 

Now we have the “economic 
declaration” from Tokyo, claimed by 
the Americans in particular to be an 
important step forward from the 
Plaza. Certainly, the apparatus of 
cooperation was all there, spelt out in 
some detail. Part of the excess 
verbiage was required to outline not- 
too-distinct roles for the Group of 5 — 
the finance ministers of the United 
States, Japan, West Germany, France 
and Britain — and tbe new “Group of 
Seven”, which includes the two minor 
members of tbe summit club, Italy 
and Canada. 

The first consequence of this sum- 
mit decision is that those next down 
the pecking order of the industrial 
economies (notably the Dutch), are 
now demanding inclusion: By the 
time of the autumn meeting of the 
International Monetary Fund, the 
Group of Seven may well have been 
obliged to give way gracefully to the 
Group of Ten (a dub which actually 
includes 11 economies, since the 
Swiss joined in). 

As well as all this ridiculous 
international economic diplomacy, 
the summit polemic on cooperation 
was clearly designed to provide the 
US Treasury Secretary with a message 
for the foil s back home. For Ameri- 
can domestic purposes, “surveill- 
ance” and “indicators” meant agree- 
ment to redress America’s trade 
defidt with Japan. 

An awful lot of ifs and buts lie 
between the language of the summit 
declaration and that possibility. Last 
week’s declaration raises the same old 
question about international coopera- 
tion. How is it to be enforced? 

By “peer group pressure”, was the 
kind of answer given in Tokyo. But fi- 
nance ministers are representatives of 
national interests, and their govern- 


ments will only act when they see 
those interests to be involved. 

Of course, there are occasions when 
tbe apparatus of cooperation can be 
used to show governments that those 
interests are involved. More frequent 
are occasions when one or two big 
economies reckon they are doing 
nicely, thank you, even if the others 
don’t like it. Provided those anti- 
social economies are not in difficulty 
raising international capital, there is 
nothing much the others can do 
except threaten to destroy the world's 
free trading system by blacking the 
miscreants’ exports. 

This has been a fundamental weak- 
ness in the system since the early 
1970s, when the system of fixed 
exchange rates broke down; and it is 
why all today's talk of cooperation 
depends critically on the move to- 
wards managed exchange rates. The 
only sanction against the strong is that 
they do not want to become too 
strong: first the Americans, and now 
the Japanese, have felt the pains of 
exchange rate appreciation. 

So the most important question 
confronting the summiteers last week 
was whether tbe movement in ex- 
change rates initiated last September 
has gone far enough. The Japanese, 
plainly, think the yen has risen 
enough. The Germans are quite happy 
to see the yen rise further, but think 
the dollar has fallen enough for now. 
The British, sitting on the sidelines, 
seem quite happy to see both move- 
ments continue. 

And the Americans? Here there is 
the greatest confusion. Mr Paul 
Volcker is plainly getting worried 
about the dollar but then exchange 
rate intervention is the only monetary 
decision over which the US Treasury, 
not his Federal Reserve Board, has 
control. 

The US Treasury seems to believe, 
with reason, that the rise in the yen 
has not gone far enough to make a 
serious dent in Japanese competitive- 
ness. President Reagan's parting com- 
ments in Tokyo (carefully scripted) 
were that both the US Administration 
and the Japanese Government wanted 
stability in tbe yen-doll ar rate. But 
then President Reagan was trying to 
undo some of the damage to Prime 
Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone wrought 
by the summit, and his words were 
discounted by the markets as mere 
politeness. 

It is however possible that they 
signified a little more. We are closer to 
an international consensus than To- 
kyo suggested. Among the big three — 
America, Japan and Germany — there 
is concern about the pace of exchange 
rate movements; none will have 
enjoyed the way the markets have 
interpreted the summit. If this change 
in sentiment can be effectively han- 
dled by central banks, the new 
apparatus of international coopera- 
tion will have some content. If not, it 
will be a diplomatic embarrassment, 
and an economic sham.

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


THE TIMES MONDAY MAY 12, 1986 


( GILT-EDGED ) 


Party nearly over 
for bond traders 


If you had walked round any 
international bond market in 
the last six months, you 
would have beard them 
crooning “heavenly, simply 
heavenly,” as yields crashed 
and values soared. But as far 
as the British gait investor is 
concerned, the love affair is 
about to end. 

The general consensus now 
is that base rates will fall 
rapidly into singje figures — 
dragged by declining inflation 
and even something of a 
rebound in oil prices. And it 
is that prospect that has 
encouraged the drop in short- 
dated gill yields to 9 per cent 

Look a little further ahead, 
however, and you will see 
that broad money supply is 
expanding rapidly: finure 
trade figures promise to be 
poor; wage settlements are 
likely to stay high; the fall in 
worldwide interest rates has 
virtually run its course, and 
there is good reason to doubt 
that the UK differential can 
be narrowed significantly. 

The extended surge in the 
broad monetary aggregates 
which began in early 1985 is 

- as last week's figures for 
April demonstrated — show- 
ing no signs of coming to an 
end. 

It is true enough that 
has been greatly in- 
ned by the persistence of 
high real interest rates and by 
financial deregulation while 
the April figure was distorted 
because the banking month 
straddled the financial year — 
and so both the public sector 
borrowing requirement and 
bank lending were abnormal- 
ly high. 

Even so. despite the distor- 
tions there are still disturbing 
implications of broad money 
growing at a year-on-year rate 
of 1 6% per cent. It means that 
there is a large — and growing 

— overhang of liquidity in the 
economy in short-term ster- 
ling deposits. Mr Lawson has 
argued that the private sector 
wishes to hold this liquidity 
on a permanent basis. 

While we accept an ele- 
ment of truth in this, high 
cash holdings probably reflect 
the current high level of 
interest rates. Should interest 
rates fall, this cash is likely 
either to be spent or to find its 
way overseas — thus putting 
pressure on sterling. So there 
must be a strong official bias 
to keeping rates at levels high 
enough to discourage this. 

The vulnerability of ster- 
ling has also been increased 
by the recent deterioration of 
trade performance. The lurch 
into current account deficit in 
March was caused partly by 
lower oil prices but was also 
because of the disappointing- 
ly poor trend in non-oil trade 
volumes, especially exports. 

Britain's- current account 
has been ^ta- healthy surplus 
since thp late 1970s, but this 
is unlikely to continue. The 


erosion of the surplus will 
gravely weaken one of the 
props underpinning the cur- 
rency. Once again, this will 
reinforce official caution on 
interest rates. 

All this assumesthat main- 
taining a relatively strong 
pouod will remain a priority. 
If the Government is serious 
about containing inflation, it 
will have to pursue policies 
which ensure the pound 
holds up. 

Even so. it is highly proba- 
ble that inflation, having 
dropped to a low point of 
per cent to 3 per cent this 
summer, will subsequently 
firm as the one-off downward 
pressures on domestic prices 
through external influences 
gradually evaporate and as 
wage costs keep growing at 5 
per cent or more. 

Indeed, unless wage settle- 
ments drop significantly, it is 
difficult to avoid the conclu- 
sion that inflation will head 
back up once more, albeit to 
only between 4 per cent and 5 
per cent And if this happens, 
the current tumble in infla- 
tion will be a short-lived 
cyclical low, akin to those of 
1978 and 1983. 

So far, wage settlements 
have shown no sign of falling 
as inflation has dropped. 
Nevertheless, it is possible 
that settlements will forego 
their current stickiness and 
fall early in the 1986-87 wage 
round, which will get under 
way this autumn. Unfortu- 
nately. this cannot be taken 
for granted, particularly as 
the unemployment situation 
may then be stabilizing and 
profits and dividends will 
still be rising at double-digit 
rates. 

If wage settlements fail to 
fall later this year, then 
expectations are likely to 
adjust to the prospect of a 
of inflaa'i 


inon m 


rising profile 

1987, as the temporary fee- 


tors which are currently de- 
pressing the rate drop away. 
And this would act as a 
further constraint on interest 
rate policy, for the Chancellor 
has made it clear his interest 
rate policy will be strongly 
influenced by what happens 
to wage settlements. He will 
not take many risks if — as is 
likely — unit labour costs 
continue to rise by 5 per cent 
or more a year. 

While the international in- 
terest rate party is almost 
over, it has not quite finished. 
No further reduction in either 
US or West German rates is 
in prospect in the very near 
term but one more cut in the 
US discount rate is probable 
around mid-year in reaction 
to the very slow growth in the 
economy. Indeed, the sec- 
ond-quarter figures may 
show no growth in US gross 
national product at all. 

This last leg of co- 
ordinated cuts m world inter- 
est rates would provide the 


opportunity for a base rate 
cut in Britain but there may 
be little scope, in the light of 
the considerations outlined 
above, for lower rates after 
that. The second-half profile 
could be flat at 10 per cent or, 
at best, 9Vz percent 

Admittedly, this would 
leave British rates high, both 
in relation to interest rates 
overseas and, in terms of 
historical comparison, do- 
mestic inflation. Unfortu- 
nately. Britain has special 
problems which differentiate 
it from many other OECD 
countries which mean that 
rates will need to stay high. 

The failure of the labour 
market to adjust to hi 
unemployment and mut 
reduced inflation is a serious 
problem for the British econ- 
omy. And the broad mone- 
lary aggregates, even though 
distorted, are expanding un- 
comfortably fast by interna- 
tional standards. Some of the 
symptoms of these problems 
can be offset in part by high 
real interest rates and an 
overvalued exchange rate. 

The Government is unlike- 
ly to be too worried by the 
persistence of high short-term 
interest rates. In recent years 
a regime of this sort has had 
little impact on economic 
activity and the current out- 
look for the economy, after a 
temporary pause over the 
winter, is for continuing 
improvement. 

It is also instructive to 
recall that the Government 
was in no great rush to bring 
interest rates down last year 
from their early 1985 crisis 
level of 14 per cent Indeed, 
most in the financial markets 
were extremely surprised by 
the tardiness with which in- 
terest rates were allowed to 
felL 

Furthermore, Mr Lawson's 
carefully planned pre-elec- 
tion strategy centres on cuts 
in income tax which will 
boost personal income and 
demand. Keeping interest 
rates high to preserve most of 
the inflation gains will be an 
acceptable cost if the Chan- 
cellor can deliver lower taxes. 

Base rates stuck around 10 
per cent would be disappoint- 
ing to the gilt-edged market. 
Short-term yields have been 
discounting a particularly op- 
timistic view of bass rates 
ever since the hike to 14 per 
cent more than a year ago. At 
the moment this optimism is 
being sustained by the view 
that the next movement in 
base rates will be downwards. 
Unfortunately, if the next cut 
turns out to be the last for 
some time, then the drop in 
short-dated yields will be 
increasingly perceived to 
have gone too fas.

Fears grow over the financing of 


By Jeremy Warner 
Business Correspondent 


When the management of 
National Freight offered to 
buy the company from the 
Government for £50 million, 
it fired the imagination of 
ambitious executives all over 
the country. Suddenly it 
seemed there was a chance of 
managing and controlling 
ibeif companies flee from the 
deadweight and priorities of 
large corporations. 

That was five years ago. 
Since then, management 
buyouts both in sue and 
number have mushroomed to 
the degree that fears are now 
openly expressed in industry 
and the City about the way 
they are financed. 

Some bankers are worried 
that if the present trend in 
“leveraged'’ buyouts contin- 
ues. a significant proportion of 
British industry could become 
overburdened with debt. 

And the result of that, they 
believe, could be an economy 
progressively starved of neces- 
sary capital investment cou- 
pled with a disproportionately 
large number of company 
failures during the next eco- 
nomic downturn. 

Management buyouts in 
Britain are rarely what their 
name implies, a management- 
financed purchase of a compa- 
ny from its previous owners. 

In most cases, the amount 
of equity involved in the 
buyout is small and the 
manag ement’s stake in the 
equity is even smaller. 

The great bulk of the pur- 
chase price is financed by 
debt. This is provided by 
bankers and institutions, gen- 
erally in return for a slice of 
the equity. 

Typical buyout investors 
look for companies in mature 
industries which are rich in 
assets and strong on cash flow. 
Such companies can tolerate 
much higher levels of debt 
than those in sunrise indus- 
tries with uncertain markets 
and high capital expenditure 
ogrammes. 

If the buyout works and the 
debt is paid off wi thin a 
reasonable length of time, the 
equity in theory becomes 
worth the whole of the pur- 
chase price or more, bringing 
rich rewards for those in- 
volved. Hence the word 
“leveraged” which is com- 
monly used in the United 
States to describe deals of this 
son. 

There have been some spec- 
tacular successes recently.

buyout specialist, only one in 
seven buyouts fails in Britain 
which compares very 
favourably with start-ups 
where the failure rate is more 
like one in four. 

Furthermore, in foe experi- 
ence of 3i, excessive debt is 
rarely the cause of a failure 
though it can hasten the end. 
A much more common cause 
of collapse is management 
strain and inability to cope 
once the umbilical cord with 
. the old patent company is cut 

Nevertheless, leveraged 
deals can and do lead to 
undercapitalized industry 
with the resuft that decisions 
on investment axe put off or 
abandoned altogether. By the 
time the buyout debt is paid 
off managers and investors 
may find that aU they are left 
with is a burnt-out old compa- 
ny using technology that is 10 
years out of date. 

Iu the US. where the num- 


ber, size, and experience of 
leveraged (teals is much great- 
er than in Britain, tins is 
already causing serious 
concern. 

Dr Henry Kaufman, the 
economic guru at Salomon 
Brothers, recently drew atten- 
tion to the significant contrac- 
tion in the equity base of 
American industry and. its 
replacement with debt. 

He said that the equity- base 
of US corporations contracted 
by $100 hOlipn in 1984 asr a 
result of mergers, acquisitions 
and leveraged buyouts. 

“The addition to corporate 
debt exceeded that to corpo- 
rate equity (retained, earnings 
plus new equity issuance) by a 
record margin' and re-estab- 
lishes an unwholesome trend 
that became so noticeable in 
the second half of the 1970s,” 
he said. 

He also dismissed foe argu- 
ment that contraction or re- 
tirement of shares makes 
available equity mote Scarce 
and therefore supports equity 
prices making it easier to raise 
capital. 

In fact, “continuous rapid 
debt expansion inhibits share - 
values because of the mount? 
ing debt burden, h inflicts on 
corporations and because in- 
vestors are offered a wide- 
ranging menu of fixed income- 
investments as alternatives to 
equities.” 

In Britain things have not 
reached that stage — yet But 
there are ominous signs. Hrst 
there was the all-cash £1J&- 
billion bid by Elders IXL of 
Australia for Allied Lyons.

Bringing a new dimension 
to the British bid defence 


By Alison Eadie 


The frenetic takeover activi- 
ty gripping the stock market 
has put a high premium on foe 
services of professional ad- 
visers. 

The British takeover spe- 
cialists with the highest pro- 
files today are the merchant 
banks Morgan Grenfell War- 
burg, Rothschild and KJein- 
wort Benson. But, to an 
increasing extent, even these 
well-practised firms are sot 
having the field to themselves. 

The habit of hiring a second 
or even a third merchant bank 
is growing. In several of the 
big Ends of the past three years 
that second bank has been foe 
powerful American invest- 
ment concern, Goldman 
Sachs. 

Goldman’s eight-strong 
London mergers and acquisi- 
tions team was called in to 
assist Hambros in defending 
Imperial Group from the un- 
wanted attentions of Hanson 
Trust It is also acting for 
Woo I worth Holdings in tan- 
dem with Rothschild against 
Dixons Group and for Stan- 
dard Chartered with Schroder 
Wagg against Lloyds Bank. 

Mr Peter Sachs, a New York 
senior partner of Goldman 
Sachs, said that, historically, 
the firm has acted for foe 
defence. Acting for foe preda- 
tor was simpler, he said. The 
defence was more 
complicated. 

The traditional British de- 


fence of profit forecasts and 
asset revaluations has not 
been successful of late, howev- 
er. Goldman's analysis of all 
hostile bids in Britain worth 
more than £75 million since 
1 983 shows that the chances of 
remaining independent, with- 
out being saved by a reference 
to foe Monopolies Commis- 
sion. are minimal. There fa 
clearly a market for 
Goldman’s services. 

The New York firm believes 
it can bring an extra dimen- 
sion to the bid defence, be- 
cause of its expertise in certain 
special areas. These areas, 
according to Mr John Thorn- 
ton, who heads the London 
merger team, include valua- 
tions, property, leveraged 
buyouts and arbitrage 
spotting. 

An example of Goldman's 
work on foe valuation front 
surfaced last week when Stan- 
dard Chartered Bank an- 
nounced it was to seek a 
Tokyo listing. The thinking 
was that a Tokyo listing would 
encourage Far Eastern interest 
in the shares and push the 
share price from Lloyds’ 
reach. 

A similar device was used to 
boost Exco's worth when it 
looked vulnerable in 1983. 
The heavily oversubscribed 
flotation of Telerate on foe 
New York Slock Exchange led 
to a doubling of Exco's share 
price. Exco's 49 per cent stake 


in Tderate had previously 
bear an undervalued asset, 
which foe flotation revalued.

A company can command 
very different valuations, de- 
pending on whether it is 
assessed at its flotation worth, 
takeover price or management 
buyout value, Mr Thornton 
said. 

Goldman Sachs, for exam- 
ple, arranged a management 
buyout for Dunlop’s Ameri- 
can tyre businesses and was 
within 15 minutes of seeing it 
signed, when BTR trebled its 
offer and secured Dunlop’s 
agreement. The price secured 
for foe buyout demonstrated 
to BTR what it would have to 
pay for the group, Goldman 
believes. 

BTR could similarly have 
been forced to raise its price in 
foe earlier bid for Thomas 
Tilling when Goldman, acting 
in conjunction with Warburg, 
recommended a leveraged 
buyout of the whole company 
at a price above that eventual- 
ly paid by BTR. The board of 
Tilling, however, decided 
against the plan. 

Woo I worth Holdings is a 
classic opportunity for foe 
Goldman team to demon- 
strate its skills, particularly in 
valuation and real estate. The 
debate about what Woolworth 
is really worth is raging in foe 
City. Most agree that it fa 
worth more than the present 
Dixons offer and more than 
the market price. But how is 
that to be assessed? 


Goldman Sachs fa content 
to stick with its niche in 
defence work, and does not 
consider foe issue of which 
merchant bank takes foe lead 
role as relevant. It detects 
changes in the British take- 
over scene, similar to the 
trend in America. More Brit- 
ish takeovers are being decid- 
ed on economic rather than 
management grounds and 
shareholders are taking an 
increasingly short-term view. 

Mr Sachs says “At some 
price the offeror will get the 
company. The defence has to 
produce a competitive value 
to shareholders, which in ef- 
fect means being its own white 
knight." 


Attention this week has 
focused on employment agen- 
cies. Hoggett Bowers, the 
executive recruitment agency 
featured in this column in 
February as a prod buy at 64p, 
had moved to KMp before the 
shares were suspended on 
Friday, with an anmmncement 
that me company fa in talks 
which may result in a fall hid. 

The hot favourite to bid for 
Hoggett, among foe punters at 
least, fa on of the other 
Unlisted Securities Market 
employment agencies, Bine 
Arrow. 

Bine Arrow is one of foe 
most successful stocks on foe 
USML It was floated in 1984 
when it encompassed an em- 
ployment agency network 
strongly orientated towards 
the provision of commercial 
and industrial temporary staff 
and it also had interests in 
holiday torn operations. 

The tour operations were 
making losses, and they were 
sold shortly after flotation. 
Since then the group has made 
a number of acquisitions, 
mostly on the employment 
agency side. 

In June, 1985 Bine Arrow 
acquired Reliance for £7.7 
million, which was more orien- 
tated towards the provision of 
office workers, and in Decem- 
ber it bought Brook Street 
Bureau, the best known staff 
employment agency. 

The Brook Street Bureau 
acquisition mere than doubled 
the Bine Arrow outlets — from 
70 to 156 today — but Brook 
Street was nothing tike as 
profitable as Bine Arrow. 

The Bine Arrow manage- 
ment style should considera- 
bly improve returns by cutting 
overheads and providing in- 
centives for staff at branch 
level 

Phillips & Drew, the 
company’s broker, es tim ates 
that Bine Arrow will make 
pretax profits of £7.2 mflfion 
in the year to October, 1986, 
compared with £2J million in 
1985, giving earnings per 
share of 20.9p. The shares 
stand on a prospective price- 
earnings ratio of J7J8 times. 

In addition to its acquisi- 
tions, there is a story of strong 
organic gro wth behind Bine 
Arrow. The sector of the 
market in which Bine Arrow 
operates fa growing rapidly, 
reflecting the expansion in 
demand for temporary staff 
Although the direct wage 
costs of temporary employees 
may be up to 50 per cent more 
than for permanent staff this 
differential falls significantly 
once total employment costs 
are considered. 

Temporary staff enable 
management to be much more 
flexible in numbers employed, 
so that the nse of temporaries . 
extends to a mnch wider 
of employees than 


typists. Bine Arrow has posi- 
tioned itself to be a big 
beneficiary of this trend, and 
in international terms is still 
very small 

Hoggett Bowers specializes 
in executive recruitment. For 
Bine Arrow it would represent 
a flagship, completing its cov- 
erage of the employment mar- 
ket from top to bottom. 

The directors of Hoggett, 
however, are known not to be 
keen on going info such a large 
group and, as they and the 


founding families still own 
more than 50 per cart of foe 
equity; Bine Arrow may have 
embarked on an uphiU task 
with this particular target. 

Another long-nnuting USM 
takeover candidate has also 
been taken oat this week. 
Cadbury Schweppes, which 
fast year bought Sodintream, 
the soft drinks dispenser man- 
Hfacturer, fa now acquiring 
Canvennoor. 

Canvermoor is based in foe r - 
Nortfa-east and manufactures 


and distributes soft drinks, 
mostly to working men’s 
duhs.The profit record has 
been vofatik far foe past two 
as it was Jttdly affected

and foe poor sanmer. weather

restricted than for Ibu profen. 
because of slightly higher side- 
effects. Doctors are unlikely to 
switch patients who are doing 
well on Ibuprq&Q to the new

OprenscandaL 

Loss of royalties and greater 
competition to Ibuprorcn are 
likely to mean that pharma- 
ceuticals, will, at best, be flat 
for the next two years or so. 
Utile has been heard recently 
about the new cardiovascular 
drug, which carries the name 
BTS49465. 

This is being developed for 
sufferers of high blood pres- 
sure, but the really big market 
is among mildly-io-moderate- 
ly hypertensive patients. 


spend money, preferably in 
mounts. Boots has al- 


ia rge amounts, 
ways been good at the former, 
but when it comes to conven- 
ing the browser into a paying 
customer, it either simply 
does not happen or purchases 
tend to be smalL 
But, Boots is, in part, start- 
ing to overcome this. It is now 
much easier to find thing s in 
the 35 or so refurbished stores, 
a programme which will en- 
compass the largest 1 00 out of 
more than 1,000 stores. Stock 
control is also much better. 
Boots now has a greatly 
improved supply line from its 
depots to the shelves and 
slocks no longer run out with 
such frequency. 

But automated check-out is 
still at the pilot stage. When it 
first looked at this some years 
ago. Boots decided H was too 
expensive and difficult, given 
its range of goods. If it had 
overcome the problems of 
bar-coding its goods then, 
faster check-outs would have 
reduced queues and stock 
control would be much better. 

Boots' failure, or what Mr 
John Richards of the stock- 
broker Wood Mackenzie sadly 
refers to as its “lost op- 
portunity” has been its inabil- 
ity to capitalize on its name 
and reputation to move away 
from its specialist concentra- 
tion on toiletries. There is. he 
feels, a lack of conviction in 
retailing other goods such as 
hi-fi and television sets. 

It seems that customers who 
buy shampoo or even small 
electrical appliances — an area 
where Boots has been success- 


solve retailing problems 

superstores fills him with “ab- 
solute horror". The company 
has four or five-sixes lined up 
and the speculation is that 
they will be developed as 
leisure and garden centres. 

Originally, the spur was the 
liberalizing of Sunday trading 
laws. But the Bill was defeated 
in Parliament and, although 
the out-of-town concept re- 
mains valid, surely the com- 
pany should be speeding up 
the revitalization of its exist- 
ing shops. 

But Boots is not only- a 
retailer. Less widely under- 
stood are its pharmaceuticals 
and consumer products busi- 
nesses. These are grouped 
together in the industrial 
products division, which 
earns 37 per cent of the 
company's pretax profit on 
only 18 per cent of total 
turnover. 

The pharmaceutical sales 
are the most profitable. Al- 
though only half of the indus- 
trial division's sales are 
pharmaceuticals, it is estimat-

However, if it is launched as 
expected in 1989, there is 
unlikely to be much by way of 
a contribution to profits be- 
fore ’ 1990, as development 
expenditure, launch and pro- 
motion costs lake their toll of 
margins. Thereafter, of course, 
the profits from what is reck- 
oned to be a £6 billion market 
will be enormous.

on May 29. 

At that time, there could 
also be news on a number of 
fronts, including the progress 
of BTS49465, plans for the 
out-of-town sites and the 
property revaluation, estimat- 


as Motrin by Upjohn, under -ed to be worth 200p per share,

an the promotional cash had 
been spent Boots came in 
with its own cheaper rival, 
Rufin — cheaper because Up-

These royalties, worth some 
£8 million annually, ceased a

Why investors could well 


sell in May and go away 


The famous stock market 
injunction to sell m May and 
go away is a good gmdeune on 
average seven years oat of 10. 


Tbe signs are it could 
operate again in 1986. The 
latest Stock Exchange account 
certainly ended on Friday on a 
dreary note. Government re- 
verses in Thursday's local 
elections and at Ryedaie were 
Mamed bat the background is 
more important than the news. 
Had prices been booming, the 
odd by-election would have 
been ignored. 

The damage had been done 
earlier, and was set off by 
downturns on Wall Street. 
Over the week, the FT-SE 100 
share index dropped 50 points 


(about 3 per cent) and the 
traditional FT 30-share index 
by slightly more, taking both 
through the support levels 
marked out by Mr Steven 
Jarvis, technical analyst at 
Kleimrort Grieveson. The all- 
share index has held up better 
and could still be described as 
consolidating rather than defi- 
nitely heading south. 


Psychology apart, there are 
good reasons why share buy- 
ers should be standing back 
after a hectic boom in the first 
three months of the year. The 
round of interest rate cats is 
now thoroughly discounted for 
the moment. There will be 
plenty of caQs for insti t uti onal 
money through rights issues 


such as that from (he Pruden- 
tial io the short run and from 
British Gas and lesser privati- 
zation issues later on. 

Some of the steam has gone 
out of the takeover boom for 
the moment too, with S&W 
Berisford likely to follow Al- 
lied- Lyons into the Monopo- 
lies and Mergers Commission. 
The feeling that any company 
of any size might attract a 
takeover bid allows investors 
to ignore the fiuidameirtals of 
shares, so any lessening of the 
takeover pace would throw a 
bucket of cold water over quite 
a few share prices. 

Mr Jack Defries of Greene 
& Co, among others, read a 
reversal in the share charts 


works for a third year ronnii 
share prices might nimbi 


before May arrived. Mr Jarvis 
is still not sure, but notes that 
if the “Sell in May" maxim 
tiling, 
imble 

more than 15 per cent. 

At this stage, however, that 
would still rate as a correction 
for the London stock market, 
which, like others, has run 
ahead too fast of late. So long 
as interest rates are falling but 
economic activity is not, the 
conditions for a bear market 
do not seem to be met, so 
investors could still find some 
excitement when they return 
from a summer holiday.

Employers 
wary of 
share plan 


By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent 

The : Government's radical 
proposals to. increase share 
ownership and profit-sharing 
among workers, outlined in 
ihe Budget, are brim; rebuffed 
by some sections of industry. 
Many employers suspect that 
such schemes conk! be no 
more than a backdoor in- 
comes policy. 

Preliminary- results of a 
survey of members’ opinions 
by the Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry suggest that em- 
ployers are not wildly 
enthusiastic about the profit- 
sharing proposals put forward 
by the Chancellor- 

Some companies lave ex- 
pressed doubts about the prac- 
ticality of tbe scheme. They 
believe that the Government 
could be planning to move 
much top quickly, introducing 
schemes before companies 
and their employees have 
been properly prepared.

A SPECIAL REPORT ON 
INTERCITY PROGRESS/1 




the stops 


Today British Rail ends the 
hassle of changing trains and 
stations in London on many 
. Intercity journeys between 
the Northwest, the Midlands 
‘ and Kent and Sussex. . . . 
Each weekday seven 
Intercity trains each way cut 
across west London via Ken- 
sington Olympia, directly con- 
necting main centres north, 
and south of the Thames in 
journey times that a law- 
abiding motorist taking the 
long, M25 way around the 
capital cannot better. - 

A Mancu nian can be in 

Croydon for a business ap- 
pointment within 3Vi hours, 
tor example: or grandparents 
living in retirement in Brigh- 
ton whb their family in Bir- 
mingham in only three hours. 

At a stroke the Manchester* 
Gatwick Airport or. Brighton 
rail journey has been short- 
ened by more than I % hours 
through the new InterCity 
route's maximum use of die 
100 mph electrified main line 
to inner London. South of the 
capital, where the electrifica- 
tion system is different, diesel 
locomotives have to takeover 
but these can run at 90 mzft 
wherever track and traffic 
allow. 

All these cross-London 
trains use modern air-condi- 
tioned coaches, and most 
include a buffet car. 

The new trains call various- 
ly at Milton Keynes. Watford 
Junction, Oapham Junction, 


Goodbye to the 
railway sandwich 



Fast movers: Passengers at Victoria ready to board the Gatwick Express 


London exhibition complexes 
and hotel belt, of Kensington's 
East Ooydon and Bromley* museums and of 


South in outer London. . 

Besides enhancing their val- 
ue in provincial markets— not* 
only, for travel to the towns 
named, but with simple 
change of train at Oapham or, 
Bromley, for trips to 
anywhere on the South 
Region — this makes In 
an attractive medium 
shorter-di stance, cross-Lon-j 
don journeys. Watford Juncv 
lion is now less than an homi 
away from East Croydon, only! 
100 minutes from Brighton.*- 
and Milton Keynes is within 
2% hours rail travel of Dover. 

All trains in both directions 


Rnigbtsbridge's shops. Fnr- 
thermore, the station's prox- 
imity to the M4 and M40 exits 
and its greatly expanded 450-1 
space car pane, allied to the 
new cross-London service, 
commend it to a considerable' 
swathe of London suburbia as 
an InleiCity starting point. 

Fra* that . matter, arriving 
InteiCiiy passengers can easily 
arrange to drive on to their 
ultimate destination. Kensing- 
ton CMympia has been added 
to the 70 IntmCity stations 
where Europeans worldwide 


car rental operation hats a) 
RaiMrive base. Pre-booked atj 
stop at the substantially rede- any Europcar office, a self-? 
veloped Kensington Olympia drive car will be placed to 
station. That puts Inier-City meet any train a customer} 
on the threshold of die West specifies. 


The cross-London Intercity 
schedules and the trains' stops! 
have been adroitly framed to) 
bracket simultaneously a 
number of travel markets. 

- 'Thus the day's first north- 
bound. train starts from 
Newhaven at &2S to meet the 
Seafink night boat from Di- 
eppe (the last one southbound 
connects with the outward^ 
boat). But then, calling at 
Haywards -Heath, Gatwick 
Airport, East Croydon and 1 
Clapham Junction from 06 50 
to 7 35, this early departure 
becomes a useful business; 
travel medium from Sussex 
and Surrey to the Potteries 
and Manchester (which ii 
reaches at 10 41) or, with a 
same-platform change of train* 
at Waiford Junction, the West 
Midlands. 

Reinforcement of the al- 


ready powerful ImerCfty pres- 
ence at Gatwick Airport is a 
major objective of the crpss^ 
London innovation. ” Four 
trains in each direction stop 
there, and at times which 
mesh with the airport's morn- 

- A useful business 
travel medium 

Log and evening peaks of 
departures and arrivals. _ 

Provincial users of Gatwick 
are not the only beneficiaries;- 
the new trains put Gatwick 
within 40-45 minutes^ jail 
travel of Kensington Olympia, 
little more than an hour away, 
from Watford Junction. . 

With ibe wide range of 
cross-country journeys it sim- 
plifies and accelerates, and 


with the further inducement 
of Saver fares, the new 
InterCity service is bound to 
make most impact in the 
leisure travel market. There its 
appeal extends to continental 
as well as domestic journeys: a 
third ofBR's passenger traffic 
to the Channel pons origi- 
nates north of London. 

Dover Western Docks is the 
terminus of the two rooming 
trains from Manchester and 
the one from Liverpool: and 
three trains return from Dover 
to the North WesL The Dover 
arrivals and departures are- 
planned to conned with the 
Jetfoil and conventional ferry 
services to. and from Ostend: 
and there with the Continental 
-railways' long-haul passenger 
^network. 

’ With Jetfoil over the Chan- 
nel Brussels can still be 


reached at 20 00 from the 
latest of the Dover trains from 
the North West, the 9 25 from 
Manchester, and even Co- 
logne before midnight. 

Thus the prime benefit will 
be for travellers to Belgium, 
the Netherlands and the 
Rhineland, though there are 
also good connections at Ost- 
end with overnight trains to 
centres in the Continental 
heartland. The new service 
has the backing of European 
Saver five-day return fares for 
a wide range of journeys: 
Birmingham-Brussels £54. for 
example, or Mancbester-Brus- 
sels £64. in all cases plus £6 for 
each one-way use of JetfoiL

Janes’ World Railways 


Dr John Prideaux, who was 
appointed BR's InterCity di- 
rector in Febrnary. takes over 
a business on an upward curve, 
carrying more passengers than 
at any time in British express 
train history. But despite a 
1985-86 revenue improvement 
of 3 per cent in real terms, the 
business is being pressed to 
achieve its government-set tar- 
get of a 5 per cent return on as- 
sets by 1988-89. 

Stimulation of more revenue 
growth through product im- 
provement, Dr Prideaux be- 
lieves, can dose mack of the 
gap. 

"I'm obsessive about 
quality." he says. “Overall it's 
good. On most routes I can get 
people to the heart of London 
twice as fast as the plane and 
more reliably and comfortably. 
That's why oar Leeds and 
Tees-Tyne Pullmans have tak- 
en a great deal of badness 
from the air services. 

“Remember that a plane has 
to loach down at least 15 
mlnates adrift before an air- 
line admits it is late. If an 
InterCity 125 is 15 minutes 
late I have finning passengers 
stamping up and down foe 
corridors." 

Reliability is admittedly be- 
low par on routes into Easton. 
Recuperation there should be- 
gin with timetable simplifica- 
tions in 1987-88 and be 
completed ia 1989 after new 
locomotives have replaced 
now-fallible models of the 
1960s. Dr Prideaux is bent on 
eradicating all operational vul- 
nerability from InterCity time- 
tables, though be stresses that 
some present day-to-day flaws 
are traceable not to imperfect 
plan, but to inattention to 
detail, which can and will be 
put right. 

As for on-train quality. Dr 
Prideaux has already pot in 
hand improved seat designs. 
Numerous innovations are 
contemplated In the next gen- 
eration of MkIV cars to equip 
the East Coast main line 
electrifications. 

Hie new InterCity catering 
system's transfer of all food 
preparation, save the British 
breakfast, to ground kitchens 
will transform on-train service 
as well as the range of wares 


on offer. “When the staff sun 
no longer tied to a kitchen, we 
shall expect them to provide 
continuous at-seat trolley ser- 
vice throughout the train. And 
there will be no excuse for 
shotting down that service 
long before the train reaches 
its terminus,’' says Dr 
Prideaux. 

“We’re trying to bury the 
tod 'railway sandwich*," he 
adds with relish, promising 
that its successor, produced 
exclusively in the ground 

kitchens, will rival in choice of 
filling, freshness and packag- 
ing the best offered over chain- 
store counters. Also to be 
interred In favour of a better 
product is what currently 
passes in train bnffets for tea 



Dr John Prideaux: Pressing 
targets to be met 

and coffee. Already this sum- 
mer the menus will feature 
regional specialities - cream 
teas, for instance, on West 
Country InterCity 125s. 

Another innovation will be 
regional catering staff dress, to 
the extent even of a tartan rig 
on a couple of Anglo-Scottish 
services- This Is no mere 
window-dressing but, along 
with identification of person- 
nel to passengers by name, a 
move to intensify the pride in 
the job which the quality and 
cnstomer-care scope of the 
new system ought to generate. 
Also for the sake of enstomer 
care and job satisfaction, pro- 
posals may soon be pnt to the

INTERCITY PROGRESS/2 


An easier run 
from Olympia 



All aboard 




Express 


The new Imeiciry station al 
Kensington Olympia will free 
travellers from further afield 
as well as residents of West 
London from die nightmare of 
crossing London to start a new 
rail journey. 

Pan of the impetus for the 
new facility - and the aston- 
ishing speed with which it has 
materialised — has been the 
instant popularity of the new 
and improved M3 and M2S 
motorways which with the M4 
are bringing a stream of traffic 
in from the “silicon valleys" 
of the Thames Valley and 
north Hampshire as well as 
Bristol Wales and the West 
Country. 

Car commuters can park 
their vehicles at one of the 450 
spaces (which will have a 
concessionary charge of £2.50 
a day) and connect with an 
Intercity train to go to Coven- 
try, Birmingham. Stoke, Liv- 
erpool or Manchester in one 
direction or Gatwick Airport 
or the Channel ports in the 
other. Equally, rail travellers 
from any of these destinations 
can now alight at the new 
station and continue their 
journey by a new underground 
service to all parts of London. 

Like all Intercity services, 
the new station has been 
designed mainly to meet busi- 
ness requirements. Proximity 
to the Olympia exhibition 
complex and the revival 
which this ) 00-year-old venue 
has had under its recent 
owners, P&O. in attracting 
foreign as well as British 
business delegates was an 
important factor in British 
Rail's decision to upgrade the 
former motor-rail terminal at 
Kensington Olympia. 

Exhibitions along with con- 
ferences are now regarded as 
big business. On a national 
scale the industry is estimated i

more than £1 billion worth of

Its comparatively central 
location at the junction of 
Hammersmith and South ; 
Kensington has meant that - 
Olympia has always been 
popular with overseas visitors 
to such major events as the 
Internationa] Showjumping 
Championships, the World 
Travel Market or die Interna- 
tional Bike Show. The com- 
plex draws a world audience of 
more than I million visitors 
annually of whom at least 
75,000 are identified as com- 
ingfrom abroad. 

The success since the open- 
ing in August, 1984 of Olym- 
pia 2. a newly-refurbished hall 
within the existing complex 
has surprised even the owners 
. Encouraged by the return ‘ 
on its investment in the 1 
exhibition halls, Tun Harris, 
chairman and managing direc- 
tor of the Earls Court and 
Olympia company, has an- 
nounced plans for a new 
conference centre. Integrated i 
with the exhibition complex, 
the main auditorium will be 
able to seat up to 450 : 
delegates. 1 j

Flying into a round-the-clock rail service 


one of the first 
airports to incorporate a rail- 
v yay station. Bui the elderly 
nc ^J lrai £ s and a timetable 
^ared to office workers rather 

- than air travellers did not 
- . e P“ car the service to the 

- airlines. Connection by rail 
was rarely advertised to holi- 

- day makers let alone to high- 
spending business executives. 

.. Since May 1984. however, 
virtue in the form of a dean, 
fast, and easy-to-use direct 
. sen ice seems to have been 
well rewarded. Although ordi- 
nary rail travellers might 
grumble about the fares, there 

• is no doubt that air passengers 
like it and that the volume of 
business has increased. 

A passenger survey carried 
. out last June shows that the 
--number of travellers using the 
. route had more than doubled 
in little over a year after the 
improvements were intro- 
duced. 

Research carried out in 
March 1984 just before the 
non-stop, round-the-clock ser- 
vice came into effect, showed 
that around three million 
passengers were using the 
London to Gatwick route 
annually. By June 1985, the 
total was seven million. 

The 1985 survey also 
proved the importance of the 
Gatwick to Victoria rail route 
in terms of national prestige — 
Gatwick is an important gate- 

• way to the United Kingdom, 
and the BR survey showed 


that more than a third of all 
passengers between the airport 
and Victoria Station in Lon- 
don were foreign nationals, 
many of them -visiting Britain 
for the first time. 

-The high-speed trains lake 
just 30 minutes -to travel 
between London Victoria and 
Gatwick and wee versa. Ser- 
vices leave Victoria every 15 
minutes between 05.30 and 
22.00 and operate throughout 
the night on an hourly basis. 

Next to “speed - , “conve- 
nience and simplicity” were 
main reasons for using the 
Gatwick rail service uncov- 
ered by BR researchers. A 
separate tidtet office and 
clearly marked platforms at 
Victoria Station are a big help, 
particularly .for passengers 
who may nave problems with 
language or who, like most 
North .Americans, are unfa- 
miliar with rail travel 
. Visitors also find the non- 
stop aspect of the new service 
reassuring. They do not have 
to worry about getting off at 
the wrong station or, once they 
have settled down, get dis- 
turbed by people getting on 
and off at other destinations. 
The trolley-type buffet with an 
attendant who dispenses 
drinks and snacks also seems 
to work well and saves passen- 
gers struggling up and down 
the aisles with hot beverages. 

A new service which may be 
introduced shortly depending 



Speaking up: Passengers

on the outcome of experi- 
ments at present in progress, 
will be telephones on trains. 

Lu g ga g e however is still a 
problem. The new trains have 
extra- wide doors which make 
it easier to manoeuvre suit- 
cases on and off the platform. 
British Caledonian, one of the 
biggest airlines based at 
Gatwick. offers check-in facili- 
ties at Victoria Station which 
relieve their customers from 
heavy luggage before they join 
the train. 

Business executives who 
travel frequently (and who do 
not tend to take a lot of 


The Intercity brand name was 
coined in 1966 for the send-off 
of BR's first 100 mph electric 
sen ice from London to Liver- 
pool and Manchester. But 
there was more to the launch 
than a new form of power and 
a sharp lift of train speed. 

Maximizing electric 
traction’s capacity for uninter- 
rupted work. BR challenged 
the flexibility of car use with 
an intensive train service at 
fixed intervals throughout the 


luggage with them) are regard- 
ed as important customers by 
both the airlines and increas- 
ingly by British Rail. The BR 
passenger survey last year 
showed that at least 30 per 
cent of foreigners and 20 per 
cent of the UK residents using 
the Gatwick Airport to Vic- 
toria rail service were travel- 
ling on business. 

Four express services in 
each direction will connect the 
North West and Midlands 
direct to Gatwick. This will 
for instance, bring industrial 
capitals like Manchester with- 
in less than four hours away in 


terms of journey time while, 
for Birmingham, the new 
timetable cites a journey time 
of 3 hours 36 minutes. For 
West Londoners, the express 
services will give a new link to 
Gatwick from Kensington 
Olympia as an alternative to 
Victoria Station. People living 
or working in East London 
will have access via a new 
direct service from London 
Bridge which will take only 
four minutes longer than the 
30 minutes from Victoria, but 
avoid the necessity to cross 
the city centre. 

Recognition that the rail 


link is likely to appeal to 
business executives is shown 
in recent publicity issued by 
the airlines who operate out of 
Gatwick Airpon. British Cale- 
donian. for instance, is includ- 
ing a first-class return rail 
ticket between Gatwick and 
Victoria Station in its Busi- 
ness Travellers' packages. 

In a promotion operated in 
conjunction with British Rail. 
Virgin Atlantic are offering 
unrestricted return tickets 
from any station in England. 
Scotland, or Wales to Gatwick 
Airport for a special price of | 
£19. First-class tickets are on 
offer for £29. 

It is little more than a 
decade since London Trans- 
port discovered that tourists 
could be a blessing in terms of | 
generating extra revenue 
(rather than a blight which 
merely inconvenienced com- 
muters). Since then regular 
travellers too have gained 
from dramatic improvements 
in standards of the 
signposting, cleanliness, and 
attractiveness of Under- 
ground stations whichj 
stemmed partly from the drive 
to attract more traffic from 
overseas visitors. The im- 
provements introduced on the 
London to Gatwick Airport, 
sendee are an indication that 
British Rail users Could be 
about to enjoy a similar , 
transformation.

been not only hallmarks of BR 
InterCity. but a strategy 
adopted by continental rail- 
ways. Some, such as the 
Dutch, West German and 
Swiss, have even paid their 
BR mentors the compliment 
of appropriating the Intercity 
logo untranslated. 

Beeching's scepticism on 
whether InterCity would sur- 
vive air and motorway ad- 
vances has been confounded: 


The resulting package of 
market-priced fere offers was 


unprecedented. So was dev 
ployment of the whole 
armoury of contemporary 
marketing and promotion 
techniques to publicize it. 

Regular-interval schedul- 
ing. market pricing and pro- 
fessional marketing have since 


Granted, InterCity has been, 
scarred on some of its routes 
by long-haul bus deregulation 
and driven to counter with 
over-intricate and sometimes 
hazardously remunerative 
fere offers. 

And government insistence 
— unique in western Europe — 
that IhteiCity return 5 per 
cent op its assets by 1989, has . 
lately enforced rolling-stock 
reductions that occasionally 


put service quality at risk 
through overcrowding. 

On the other hand, approval 
of the £306 million east-coast 
main line electrification now 
under way suggests that this 
same government, no oven 
aficionado of rail transport, is 
convinced of a viable 
InterCity's endurance. 

Even the London-Scotland 
air shuttles have been held at 
bay by InterCity 125 HSTs. 
These are the diesel-powered 
125 mph train sets which BR 
evolved in the 1970s when it 
was denied more InterCity 
electrification, let alone the 
purpose building of new high- 
speed lines such as was al- 
lowed for the French. German 
and Italian railways. As yet, 
InterCity 125 is the only high- 
speed train in the world to win 
an export sale, to the railways 
of New South Wales. 

For a fraction of the £1.2 


billion which the French spent 
on their new 170 mph Paris- 
Lyons line, BR ironed out 
curves, refined track and 
resignalled historic InterCity 
routes so that today Edin- 
burgh is little more than 4>/j 
hours and Newcastle upon 
Tyne just under three hours 
from London by the fastest

140 mph operation, will have 


New routes are

The east coast London- 
Scotland, London to the West 
and South Wales, London- 
East Midlands-Sheffieid, and 
the North-East and North- 
West to the South-West via 
Birmingham routes are 
InterCity 125 territory. New 
routes may be added when, in 
1989, HSTs are displaced 
between London and Leeds by 


up to 185 mph potential. 
Matched with coaches of new 
design by British Rail Engi-

fore being advanced by a 
British industrial consortium 
as a contender for London- 
Paris/Brassels through service 
over the 185 mph line the 
French are set to build to their 
end of the Channel Tunnel. 

Comfort has improved 
along with InterCity speed, 
but at a rate conditioned both 
by funding ability and by 
Department of Transport, ac- 


A revolution in on-train 
catering, now directly man- 
aged, by InterCity, has begun. 
A new system concentrating 

almost all preparation in

A guide to 
career choice 


The overseas alternative 


Many students would like to spend all or 
part of their “year out” overseas. As 
mentioned last week, this is not easy, but 
can be done. 

Siobhan Boxail. nowai Surrey Univer- 
sity doing a nursing degree, spent last 
year in Pakistan, working with eight 
other; volunteers sent to teach English in 
a language teaching centre. There was 
initial culture shock, particularly for the 
three girts who had to adapt quickly to 
the restrictions imposed on them — 
living in a separate house with a 
“chaperone", and only allowed to reach 
females. It was. a totally different 
lifestyle. 

“We had to relearn the an of 
conversation in the evenings/* she says. 
“I suppose we amused ourselves in the 
ways, we did here before television.” 
Local people though were kind. The girls 
conformed, wearing local dress and 
covering their heads in public. Asa result 
they were often invited into homes and 
become popular wedding guests. 

Travelling was not easy, cinema visits 
forbidden and eating in restaurants had 
to be done in curtained off areas. But 
they did manage to go out — always in a 
group — with the male volunteers, and 
the organization encouraged them to 
meet at weekends with other groups. 
Towards the end of the year they 
managed a trip to India. Siobhan had a 
marvellous year, but did feela kind of re- 
verse culture shock for- several weeks 
after her return. 

The organization provided orientation - 
and teaching method courses, and as is 
the usual practice, made their travel and 
accommodation arrangements. It also 
paid them an allowance, generous by 
local standards, out of which they had to 
buy their food. 

Siobhan's organization, the Bible 
Medical and Mission Fellowship, was 
unusual since most prefer to send older 
volunteers with specific skills. Some 
other religious bodies still send school 

Project volunteers often 
face a gruelling assessment 

leavers to the third world. One, the 
Quaker Peace and Service Organisation 
places German speaking young people 
on projects with the handicapped or 
elderly in Germany and Austria. 

Two non-denominational organiza- 
tions which recruit school leavers for 
work in developing countries are Project 
Trust and Gap Activities Projects. 
Project Trust, based in the Hebrides, 
annually sends ISO to work in schools, 
hospitals, orphanages and on farms in 
Africa, Asia, Central America. India and 
the Far East. 

Major Bristol of Project Trust is 
famous for his selection methods. Pro- 
spective volunteers face a gruelling 
character, stamina and initiative assess- 
ment on the Isle of Coll. They then raise 
£1 .250 towards their expenses — by fund 
raising, sponsorship, “anything,* says 
the major “except a*' cheque from 
Daddy." No-one Ails Jojfo so..’ GAP * 


SCHOLARSHIPS 


Students who spend time 
abroad claim to benefit 
In this second of two 
articles. Beryl Dixon, 
considers the options 
available to the student 
determined to travel 



Students at work on a kibbutz 
sends approximately 150 to 15 countries, 
“usually the ones Project Trust doesn’t” 
according to a member of staff, and often 
for shorter periods. Most volunteers go 
from January to July, finding £250 
towards their costs. 

Paid employment in Britain is becom- 
ing a bard to find. However, as students 
are usually willing to accept routine jobs, 
they can often find openings — in 
catering and domestic work, for exam- 
ple. Other ideas include agricultural 
work and teaching English. Some travel 
companies employ young people who 
can speak foreign languages as reps at 
their campsites in Europe. 

A word of warning — nobody should 
head overseas without health insurance, 
sufficient funds for emergencies, and 
without checking on the work permit 
requirements. Immigration authorities 
can and do turn people away. Volunteer 
bureaux normally make all the necessary 
arrangements, but where paid work is 
conce r ned, this becomes the responsibil- 
ity of the individual. 

Some opportunities forgoing overseas 
fit conveniently into neither the category 
of voluntary work or of paid employ- 
ment. These are the “paid holidays" 
which are usually only of a few weeks* 
duration, and may appeal to students 
with a summer vacation to spare or to 
those hoping to use part of their year 
“out" in this way. 

Various organizations arrange projects 
lasting from four to ten weeks in social, 
community, archaeological or construc- 
tion work in a number of countries 
including India, America, western Eu- 
rope and the eastern bloc countries. 
-Participants normally pay_ their own. 


fares but receive board, lodging, and in 
some cases, pocket money and experi- 
ence living in. work camps with students 
of all nationalities. 

Those wishing to spend longer periods 
abroad, and work for several hours a day 
in return for food, accommodation and 
‘ pocket money, can consider au pair work 
or work on a kibbutz. Stays of -various 
lengths can be arranged The minimum 
period on a kibbutz is five weeks. 
Everyone is fed and boused, while people 
staying longer receive a small -wage.. 
Families usually pay the fare of an au, 
pair staying for a year. - ! 

Erica Siemdale-Bennett is looking i 
forward to an “exchange, visitor 1 
programme" after her A levels. She is- 
going to California under Camp 
America's Family Companion Pro- 
. gramme. In return for nine weeks’ light 
housework and care of four children in 1 
an American family she wfl] receive 
board, lodging, pocket money, a return 
air ticket and the use of a cart 

It will be no holiday with four lively 
children to amuse, but she can stay in foe 
US for up to six weeks’ independent 
sightseeing before her charter flight 
home. She is currently exchanging letters 
with the family and finding out about the 
children's interests. Erica completed her 
application form carefully, listing a range 
of interests from sports to arts and crafts. 
She also enclosed a testimonial from a 
junior school at which shebas helped all 
of which impressed. Camp America’s 
interviewer. 

Travel broadens the mind, the saying 
goes, and most students who spend time 
abroad between A levels and higher 
education claim to benefit Thinking 
back to her Pakistan experience, Siobhan 
says that it helped her to grow up- She 
learned a lot about herself; bow to work 
with other people; and how to manage 
money. Some of her university friends 
were surprized at the end of their first 
term when, instead of being overdrawn. 

To find the right overseas . 
option will take persistence 

she had actually saved. 

However, it has to be said that it is 
usually the more enterprising to whom 
foe idea appeals in foe first place. Erica is 
already an independent spirit, having 
travelled around Europe by train on her 
own last summer. GAP and Project 
Trust volunteers have to impress a 
selection panel and find them own 
sponsors. Finding a series of temporary 
paid posts takes time, effort and persis- 
tence. But many do it every year.

Enbarr fancied 
to maintain 
Warren Place 
momentum 


•i+st-sr w « 


Henry Cecil served notice 
lhat his powerful Warren 
Place team is reaching peak 
form with lhat excellent treble 
at Lingfield Park on Saturday. 
Now 1 expea Enbarr to 
maintain the momentum by 
opening his account in the 
Mar Lodge Stakes, the closing 
event at Windsor's evening 
meeting. 

Enbarr was all the rage for a 
similar maiden race at Not- 
tingham last month, but after 
looking all over the winner 
approaching the final furlong 
was caught m the last stride by 
the 20-1 chance, Miliescens. 
The King's Lake colt should 
have derived much benefit 
from that outing and is now 
napped to go one better at the 
expense of the Dick Hem- 
trained StarmasL who shaped 
with promise behind Luna Bid 
at Salisbury last season. 

It often pays to follow Paul 
Cole's two-year-olds first time 
out and' the in-form 

What com be trainer may take 
the Lady Caroline Stakes with 
his newcomer. Ultra Nova, a 
daughter of Tina's Pet, who 
has been showing good speed 
at home. Mark Lasher's 

Clare niia stayed on too 

strongly for Marimba at 
Kempton on 2,000 Guineas 
Day. but she has to concede 
81b to her rivals here which 
should tilt the scales in my 
selection’s favour. 

However Usher fares with 
Oarentia. the Lamboum 
trainer ought to land the: 


By Mandarin 

Dusty Miller Handicap with 
Holyport Victory, who. before 
his game third under 10st at 
Redcar on Tuesday, had 
scored in good style at 
Brighton. 

It was good to see Bill 
O'Gorman back with a two- 
year-old winner at Lingfield 
on Friday when Bestplan 
obliged, and another of his 
youngsters, Timeswitch, can 
make a successful first appear- 
ance in the EB.F Blue Charm 
Maiden Stakes. 

Luca Cumani looks the 
trainer lo follow at Wolver- 
hampton where the talented 
Italian trainer can complete a 
double with Barley Bill t3.30) 
and While It Lasts (4.0). 

Barley Bill has won all his 
three starts this season, and 
last time out comfortably 
landed an amateur riders' 
event at Haydock. He still 
looks one step ahead of the 
handicapper and is worth 
following. His stable compan- 
ion. While It Lasts, despite a 
tardy start, managed third 
place behind Donnas Dream 
at Warwick and has plenty of 
scope for improvement. 

Cum ami could also be on 
the mark in the first division 
of the Pontefract Maiden Mile 
championship with Dallas, a 
grey son of Blushing Groom, 
who is expected to improve on 
his effort in Newmarket's 
Wood Ditton Stakes, where he 
was 12th of the 2d runners 
behind the impressive 
Armada.

Dancing Brave is the new 
favourite for the Derby at odds 
as low as 2-1. Guy Harwood's - 
exciting decision to send 
Khakd Abdulla's brilliant 
2,000 Guineas winner to Ep- 
som for the Ever Ready- 
sponsored classic was taken 
alter the new favourite's stable 
companion, Bakharoff, had 
finished second to Mashkonr 
in the Highland Spring 
Lingfield Derby Trial on 
Saturday. 

“Of course we don't know 
whether Dancing Brave will 
stay," the Pul borough trainer 
yesterday. "Only the race will 
tell os that But be has a very 
relaxed temperament and in 
any case there will be nothing 
to prove by going for tbe Irish 
2,000 Gmueb." 

Dancing Brave's three- 
length defeat of Green Desert 
at Newmarket has already 
shown the cob to be one of tbe 
outstanding winners of tbe 
first of roe colts' classics 
during the past 20 years. And 
Harwood is taking tbe gamble 
that the speed and class 
transmitted by the prepotent 
Northern Dancer blood 
through Lyphard wilt compen- 
sate for any stamina weak- 
nesses on tbe dam's side. 

History says that Dancing 
Brave has a great deal going 
for him. Since Nijinsky's vic- 
tory in 1970, The Minstrel, 
Golden Fleece and Secreto 
have been other Derby win- 
ners sired by either Northern 
Dancer or one of his sons. El 
Gran Senor, so narrowly de- 
feated by Secreto in 1984, then 


By Michael Seely 
went on to capture tbe Irish 
Sweeps Derby. The most nota- 
ble failure bred on these lines 
has been the 1983 2,000 
Guineas winner, Lomond, wbo 
finished down tbe field behind 
Teenoso at Epsom. 

Ladbrokes’ offer of 2-1 is 
definitely not an attractive 
price. However, HlDs still go 
7-2, having bid him at 5-1 
over the weekend, and this 
price should be taken. 

Halfway op the straight at 
Lingfield on Saturday it ap- 
peared that Bakharoff, was 
poised to produce tbe finishing 
speed and stamina that had 
won him last year's 
CheshamS takes and w illiam 
HOI Futurity at Doncaster. 
But in tbe last forking the 
favourite could find no more as 
Mashkonr bang bravely onto 
his lead to win by half a length. 
Harwood said that Bakharoff 
may still accompany Dancing 
Brave to Epsom. "The other 
alternative would be to go to 
Chantilly for the French 
Derby," be said. 

No definite Derby decision 
has been taken on Armada, 
although the colt definitely 
misses this week's Mecca- 
Dante Stakes at York. A 
decision on another Harwood. 
Ep£om possible, Allez Milord,- 
will be taken after be has run 
in Goodwood's Predominate 
Stakes. 

The afternoon belonged to 
Henry Cecil and Steve 
Cantheo. Half an hour earlier 
tbe pair had initiated a treble 
when Mill On The Floss 
stayed on too strongly for

Laughter and Singletta in the 
Marley Roof Tile Oaks TriaL 
This was a game performance 
by the winner, but improve- 
ment can be expected from 
both the runner-op and third, 
who were both haring their 
first races of the season. 

Ladbrokes are prepared to 
offer 5-1 against Cfccfi winning 
the Derby with any horse. 
Discussing the situation, be 
said yesterday: “Mashkonr 
and Faraway Dancer are both 
possibles, as is Bonhomie, who 
was not himself when beaten 
by Shahrastani at Sandown. 
And of course I want to see 
how AH Haste gets on in the 
Mecca-Dante Stokes at York 
on Wednesday." 

iHteestmgly, Cedi is still 
foil of hope for Verd-Antiqne 
despite the Shirley Heights 
colt's defeat by Nisnas at 
lin gfidd on Friday. “I still 
think be could torn out to be 
my best three-year-old," the 
trainer continued. “He 
couldn't act on the track at alL 
but despite foiling down the 
hill he and the winner stiD 
managed to quicken 15 lengths 
clear of die rest However, 
Verd- Antique is too inexperi- 
enced and we might deride to 
follow the Irish Derby and St 
Leger path with him." 

MQl On Tbe Floss's victory 
paid a handsome compliment 
to her Newmarket conqueror, 
Gesedeh, and Michael 
Jarvis's filly is second 
favourite for the Oaks, for

Bering to miss Derby 


From Our French Racing Correspondent, Paris 
Bering won the PrixHocquart caught dose home by 
by a comfortable two lengths. 


a 

which should have been dou- 
bled or trebled at Longchamp 
yesterday. He was clear entering 
the final furlong, but Gary 
Moore then looked round 
continuously for non existent 
dangers, a policy which did not 
delight the colt's connections. 

He won by two lengths from 
Toint (TArtois. whom be had 
beaten by eight lengths in the 
Prix Noailles last month and is 
now “70 per cent likely" to go 
for the Prix du Jockey-Club 
(French Derby) in the opinion 
of Alec Head, the trainer, whose 
wife owns the son of Arctic 
Tern. Bering will be sent over to 
Epsom only if the Derby field 
looks like being a weak one. 

Storm Warning, the only 
British runner of the day, was 


Last 

Tycoon and Batave after being' 
well clear for most of the Prix de 
Saint-Geoiges. Batave was first 
to go by, but this filly, who was 
with Henry Cecil last year, was 
caught by Last Tycoon in the 
final strides. 

Italian triumph

Dunlop-trained 
who had been 


bought by the Scudera Era see a 
w hours earlier, won the Derby 


few I 


Italiano by a neck from the fast 
finishing Be My Master at the 
Capannelle, Rome, yesterday. It 
was a second success in the race 
for Willie Carson. Shibil fin- 
ished I Vi lengths back in third; 
North Verdict was fifth and the 
fourth British challenger. Local 
Herbert, was eighth of the IS 
runners. 


The meric of Dancing Brave's 
2,000 Guineas victory at New- 
market were handsomely ad- 
vertised by Toca Madera in the 
Deninstown Stud Derby Trial 
over 10 furlongs at 
Leopardstowu on Saturday. At 
Newmarket, Toca Madera was 
beaten almost 10 lengths into 
ninth place, although Liam 
Browne, his trainer, was ada- 
mant that be got no ran at all 
through the race. 

Stephen Craine, the Isle of 
Man born jockey, wbo had 
ridden Toca Madera in all his 
previous races, was now - re- 
placed by Christy Roche at tbe 
insistence of John Mulbem, 
who now owns the oolt in 
partnership with Miss Deborah 
ThreadweJL Roche, in his 
endeavoms to keep Toca Ma- 
dera covered np for as long as 


possible, also got into difficulties 
and eventually had to pull him 
up and move out from the rail to 
the centre of the track. 

While Roche was executing 
this maaconvre, Pat Eddery 
who, contrary lo instructions, 
bad elected to set the pace on the 
odds-on favourite. Wise Coun- 
sellor, had established a lead of 
a couple of lengths hot Toca 
Madera qui cken ed and, getting 
on terms inside the final forking, 
looked likely to go dear. Ten 
furlongs is however the limit of 
his stamina even in a slow run 
race and Wise Connsdlor was 
coming back at him dose to the 
line to be beaten a head. 

This victory in a group two 
pattern race was a triampti for 
small money over large invest- 
ment Toca Madera had been 
soW as a yearling far £500 and 


for 
Coun- 
sellor had fetched SL3n at 
Kcendand. 

After the race Vincent 
O'Brien raled Wise ConeseDor 
out as an Epsom Derby possible, 
saying that after this hard race 
be would prefer to rest turn util 
the second half of the season. 
O'Brien fo still hopeful that 
Imperial Falcon will be well 
enough to ran in the Irish 2000 
Guineas on Saturday, but said: 
“This is very ranch a day-to-day 
decision". 

Wise CoaoseDor's 
Stavros Niarcbos, had started 
die afternoon by winning a 
maiden race with tbe beanti- 
folly-bted fiBy Fleur and Boy- 
ale. She is a daughter of Mill 
Reef and the French Oaks 
winner. Sweet Mimosa.

gOl FrCLARK HAS LEARNT THE VALUE OF RETAINING HIS YORKSHIRE RESILIENCE WHEN UNDER PRESSURE 

Sellberg drives 
home Swedish 
message as he 
scores a first 


By MfteheB Platts 
Owe Sellberg, of Sweden, won 
the Epson Grand Prix match- 
play tournament when be over- 
Howard Clark 3 and 2 in 
the final at St Pierre. Chepstow 
yesterday. Sellbere's victory, 
which was worth £25,000, was 


the first by a Swede on the PGA 
n Tour and it supported 


European _ 

the daim of Tony Jaddro, the 
European Ryder Cup captain, 
that a Swede would be in the 
team against the United States 
next season. 

Clark,. who won the Madrid 
Open two weeks ago, began by 
holing a putt of 28 feet for a 

bmJie-Seliberg, display ing no 

signs of nerves, followed him in 
from 20 feet for a half, then set 
the pattern for the match by 
holing a putt of 10 feel for a 
winning birdie at the second. 
Another birdie at the 1 2th took 
Sellberg two ahead and Clark 
missed chances on the 14th and 
15ih greens before the match 
ended at the next bole. 

Clark, m a fashion similar to 
that of Steve Davis in the recent 
world snooker championship, 
was obliged to overcome a 
succession of formidable oppo- 
nents before moving through to 
the final. 

Even before be faced and 
defeated Sandy Lyle on the last 
green in the semi-final yesterday 
morning the determined 
Yqrkshiieman had been re- 
quired to beat Jose Rivero, of 
Spam, Bernard Gallacber and 
David Feberty. 

Sellberg, too, most have in- 
creased the faith in his own 
game, especially after moving 


Nick Faldo in the first 
round, then in overcoming his 
compatriot, Anders Forsbrand, 
by 3 and 2 in the other semi- 
final, which demonstrated the 
- vast improvement in die Swed- 
ish golfers. 

Lyle began the tournament as 
the favourite. He struggled 
throughout the week on the 
greens, which is understandable, 
as he was seeking to adapt to a 
pace foreign to him after almost, 
four months in the United 
States, where the putting sur- 
faces are appreciably slicker. 

Lyle was one up with five 
holes to play hot Clark struck a 
marvellous three-wood second 
shot to the 14th (521 yards), far 
which his reward was a birdie 
four, and Lyle contrived to miss 
from five met so th?t the 
was all square. 

Lyle might have moved 
again at the next but his attempt 

fora winning birdie from 10 feet 
veered left as he prepared to 
walk forward and pick the ball 
out of the hole. Clark, who had 
chip ped in to beat Lyle at the 
first extra hole in the Glasgow 
Open last August, produced 
another darner thrust here by 
holing a 1 2-root putt fora birdie 
at the 17th which ended the 
resistance of his rival

British lose face to 
a lesser American 

From John Hunneney, Chufilfy 


Kelly Leadbetter put a num- 
ber of faces out of countenance 
here yesterday. It is one thing for 
the members of the Women's 
Professional Golf Assocmion to 
surrender, as they did last year 
in the Heanessy Cognac Cup to 
Jan Stephenson, a leading hghi 
of the American tourhtg cirrus, 
quite another to be unable to 
withstand the lesser attack of 
Mrs Leadbetter. 

This is not io decry the 
American's qualities, although 
her best days, one thought, were 
behind her when she had a baby 
two years ago; but, having 
established a strong position 
overnight, she sraa in bfal home 
in 76, three over par, for a total 
of 293, while the main thrust 
ahead came from those who bad 
too much leeway to make op- 

Karen Luna, of Australia, 
began the day. two strokes 
behind and twice got her nose^in 
front but a seven at foe par-four 
lith, as it turned out, was 
decisive. Three behind with 
three to play, she brought a big 
gallery under a summer sun to a 

tiptoe of excitement with a two 
to Mrs Leadbetter' 1 * four at the 


short 1 6 th and a sturdy par four 
to a bogey five at the next 
But tire American, with a 
courageous tardie pott from 12 
feet at the last, strode the find 
blow fora first prize of £9.000. 

Afison Nicholas all five feet 
of her, hung on nitrify m the 
final match but the summit of 
her performance was 8 foor-iroa 
to IS feet over the valley of the 
13th. The putt stayed out and 
Mrs Leadbe tt er replied to her 
wooden dub shot well wide iff 
the I4tb (J70 yards) with a 
three-iron that curled seduc- 
tively two feet behind the bole. 

A grivnside bunker stole two. 
more shots from tire little York- 
shire woman at the 15th and 
dearly she had shot her bolt. 
Jane Connachan, who scored « 
72, thus came through to take 
third place and a prize of £4,500.

Mannheim answers 
several questions 

From Jim Kaflton, Mannheim

Mannheim International Re- 
gatta over the weekend in which 
eight countries took pail. Para- 
doxically. most of the top West 
Germans, apart from their 
world champion men's coxless 
four, went to Ghent. 

For the British, it was a 
profitable trip. They produced 
worfd-dass performances here 
and answered many questions 
amongst themselves on the 
Muhlauhafcn course which is 
just short of the international 
distance of 2J300 metres. 

The biggest surprise yesterday 
canre m the coxtes fours where 
the Tyrians (London 
University’s Old Boys) beat the 
West German world champions 
by almost a l en g th . 

Saturday's top performance 
had been in the coxless pairs. 
Britain put afloat two crews who 

between them have diam- 

S ished battle honours - three 
ympie golds and a u«rfd 
silver medal. Redgrave and 
Holmes dominated the race 
from the start, coming home 
with over seven lengths to spare 
from compatriots Cross and 
Clift m. a time that .would hare 
riven them medals in the coxed 
and co xte™ font" events here. 
That is class. 

They win now surely be

Britain had much else to 
enthuse about in Mannheim 


over the weekend despite the 
absence of many of the world's 
best crews. 

Yesterday, the two British 
pairs contracted into a coxed 
four with Olympic gold medal- 
winning coxswain Adrian Elli- 
son in charge. They won by 
lengths in an exceptional rime 
and have an embarrassment of 
choices for the championships 
bier this year. 

Less than an hoar later, 
Redgrave and Holmes went 
afloat again and won the elite 
coxless pairs. They are gluttons 
for success. Tyrian’s viaory

RUGBY LEAGUE 

Outsiders 
to meet 
champions 

By Keith MarkKn 

The champions, HaBfo*, and 
the outsiders, Wtrringtau, wfll 
meet is the premiership final at 
EBand Road, Leeds, next week 
after two thrilling battles ha 
yesterday's semi-finals. 

Halifax seemed beaten 
Leeds when they were 13-1 
down with only five wfantw to 
go, bat they snatched victory 
when a Leeds forward dropped 
the ball and the Anstrafiaa 
centre, Tony Anderson, swept 
outside the Leeds winger, Carl 
Gibson, to win the same for the 
first dhisfoo champion*. 

The natch had seen the lead 
changing hands several Hmet. 
Halifax fought back from 0-5, 6- 
U and then 10-13 to clinch 
victory with the Anderson try 
that brought the crowd roaring 
to their feet. 

The other semi-final at Cen- 
tra! Park saw Warrington pro- 
duce - then- best form of the 
season to beat Wigan 23-12, the 
stand-off half. Bishop, equaling 
the record of fire dropped goals 
to a senior game. 

Warrington, splendidly led by 
the combative forwards, Boyd 
and Tamati, tackled ferodoosly 
from the start and threw Wigan 
out of their normally fluent 
stride. 

At half-time Wigan were oafy 
a point behind at 6-7. bat Bis] 
kept popping over the drop) 
gods, and eventually Bishop 
and his brfflfaat half back 
partner. Gregory,- Warrington's 
man of the match, scored tries. 

Wigan could rarefy shake off 
the ruthless War ringto n tadt- 
fing. though they did produce a 
beautiful more just b e fore half- 
time iu which Edwards, West. 
GIB and Edwards again handled 
sup erb l y for Potter to touch 
down mid Stephenson to kick 
thegpaL 

Roberts had earlier raced 
through powerfully for a tty to 
Warrington, following one of 

Gregory's many breaks.

end England were grateful for 
the draw, each side scoring a 
goal and three penalty goals, and 
were fortunate to achieve even 
that 

. Italy, who leave for a five- 
match tour of Australia today, 
threw away the chance of a 
second try when they ignored a 
huge overlap midway through 
the second half and BeoaieUo 
pushed a drop goal narrowly 
wide in injury time. A relieved 
Michael Weston, the tour man- 
ager, said he hoped contact 
would be renewed sooner rather 
than later, conceivably at senior 
level. Certainly England would 
like a “conditioning*’ visit to 
Italy's heat and hard ground 
before they leave next May for 
Australia and the world cup 
tournament. 

Rose the experienced Harle- 
quins full bade, landed four of 


his five place kicks, including 
one from halfway and a second 
from an awkward angle which 
levelled the scored with only 
five minutes left Smith, the 
stand-off half has toured well 
too. Another neat game was 
enhanced by a clean break, 
spoiled only when he dropped 
the ball, and his confidence 
grows with every represe n tative 
appearance: 

Handling presented certain 
difficulties with a light ball on a 
hard ground with the smooth 
surface of a croquet lawn. The 
bounce was unpredictable, but it 
was the excellence of Bettarello's 
diagonal kick, stretching Rose to 
the foil, which led to 
MasrioJettfs try early in the 
second half. 

It was not the most fluent of 
games — partly because of Rene 
Hourquei's interpretation of the 
ruck-maul law. partly because of 
playing mistakes - but it was 
disappointing that En g)anH 
could establish no area of domi- 
nance. Apart from one early 
disruptive shove and the 
satisfaction of a late hed against 
the bead, the scrum got no 
change from the Italian for- 
wards who crabbed round to 
spoil England's put-in and were 
able to straighten up easily. 

In the lineout too England 
were overshadowed in tbe first 
half before throwing more ball 
to Budnon at the tail The Orrell 
flanker had a useful game in the 
broader sense, but he is no 


battering ram dose to the set 
pieces and slows tbe pace of I 
movement by turning round to 
feed his support. HalL, in the 
unaccustomed position of No.8, 
did not establish an easy 
relationship with Hilt he cov- 
ered wefl but tbe linking ofback- 
row and scrum half not 
surprisingly, took time to 
develop. 

Italy’s best attacker was Baiba 
from the back, but they may 
depend too much on Bettarello. 
their record points scorer with 
424 from 47 games, 1 1 of them 
in this match. He opened the 
scoring before England bad the 
encouragement of a try in tbe 
corner from Hill which, though 
there was a suspicion of a knock 
on, featured excellent work by 
Carle ton and good support from 
Goodwin and Hall. 

Bettarello's second penalty 
struck an upright and crossbar 
on the way over, but Rose was 
able to ignore the crescendo of 
whistles and abuse to keep 
England in touch.

Steve Oven’s 5.000 metres 
track aspirations took on real 
promise when he won tbe 
International Athletes* Club 
eight kilometre road race, spon- 
sored by Gaymer's Cyder, on 
the streets of Oxford yesterday. 
Ovett admitted that he had had 
some trepidation about his 
move up from 1.500 metres 
when be could only finish I llh 
in the AAA 10 kilometre road 
race last month. “Finishing 40 
seconds adrift of the leaders was 
a bit demoralizing", he 
admitted. 

Bat be knew that that was his 
fust major race in six months, 
after a winter's training at longer 
distances than he had under- 
taken for years. Three weeks of 
shorter, faster track training, 
including a fortnight in Por- 
tugal. justified tbe decision to 
move up distance when Ovett 
decisively outsprinted Paul Da- 
vies-Hale over the final ISO 
metres, after the young Stafford- 
shire runner had given notice of 
his own considerable potential 
this summer by running clear of 
everyone except Ovett on the 
last three of 10 laps. 

There was some consterna- 
tion prior to the race when 
Carlos Lopes, the Olympic 
marathon champion, failed to 
turn up. Dave Bedford, tbe 1AC 
chairman and race promoter. 


said that Lopes, when contacted 
by telephone on Saturday, bad 
failed to give any reasonable 
excuse for his non-appearance. 
Bedford feels, with some jus- 
tification, that in this age of 
professional athletics, stars 
should be made contractually 
liable for withdrawals. 

Kirsty Wade, n6e 
McDermott, started towards the 
defence of her Commonwealth 
800 metres title with an equally 
impressive sprint, but one 
which started earlier than 
Ovett's, when she ran away 
from Cornelia Burki of Switzer- 
land with 600 metres to go in the 
women's 3,200 metres race. 

The weekend was also notable 
for an athletes' meeting in the 
Randolph Hotel. Oxford, venue 
for the formation of the AAA in 
1880. The congregation on Sat- 
urday night was discussing the 
latest bone of dissatisfaction 
with the administration, the 
selection and nurturing of a 
cross-country squad, capable of 
bringing the world champion- 
ship back to Britain.

Toulouse win meet Agen in 
the French championship 
Rugby Union final on Saturday 
week in Paris (a Special 
Correspondent writes). Stade 
Toutousain precariously nego- 
tiated a tense semi-final against 
Graulhet to reach tbe final for 
the second successive year. The 
holders had their coach, Pierre 
Viilepnaix, shaking his head 
forlornly at a series of un- 
characteristic errors before 


emerging victorious by 21 
points to 12. at Tarbes. 

The right wing, Jean-Micbel 
Rancoule, scored two tries in 14 
minutes after half-time. The 
scrum half, Michel Lopez cre- 
ated both, and kicked three 
penalties and two conversions: 
but Toulouse's much- vaunted 
back division, containing four 
inter nation als, spluttered in- 
effectually, devoid of cohesion 
and timing.

• Naas Botha, the captain of 
the South African Springboks, 
spearheaded a fine comeback as 
his side beat the rebel New 
Zealand tourists 21-15 in Cape 
Town on Saturday. Tbe New 
Zealanders bad taken a 9-0 lead 
by midway through the first 
half, but Botha hit back, landing 
three penalties, two dropped 
goals and a conversion to take 
his personal tally to 17 points. 


Simon Le Bon and his crew 
on the British maxi Drum 
returned to Portsmouth yes- 
terday to take third place on 
elapsed time in the Whitbread 
round the world yacht race, but 
the dawn celebrations were de- 
layed for an hour and a half 
while Customs officers and a 
sniffer dog rummaged through 
the yacht for drugs. 

The British yacht and its 17 
crew, beaten to the finishing line 
by more than three hours by 
Eric Tabaily's Belgian maxi 
Cote (TOr. was finally cleared 
and waiting fans mixed with 
family and friends to give the 
crew a belated, but resounding 
welcome. 

Both these yachts were beaten 
on total elapsed time on this 
27.000-miIe classic by the Ron 
Holland-designed Lion New 
Zealand, a near sister ship to 
Dram which arrived 5Vr hours 
later. 

This crew had liule to cele- 
brate. however, and the notice- 
able absence of champagne 
spray reflected the dashed hopes 
of skipper Peter Blake of win- 
ning this race at his fourth 
attempt. 

His problem was that Lion 
New Zealand proved too small 
and too heavy to compete on 
equal terms in the unusually 
light conditions that prevailed 


for much of the distance against 
the Brace Farr-designed UBS 
Switzerland which measured 
four feet longer and weighed 
16.0001b less. 

At a press conference later. Le 
Bon said that the "Customs 
pitch”, described by officers as a 
routine search, had not been 
unexpected. Searches apart, he 
described the eight-month voy- 
age as one of the best experi- 
ences of his life although he did 
admit to being apprehensive at 
the start, especially after the 
yacht had capsized with him 
inside it during last year's 
Fasinet race. 

Many friends tried to dis- 
suade him telling of whales, 120- 
foot seas and the chance of pitch 
poling and one even took out a 
54.000 bet that he would be 
drowned.Now he is looking 
forward to getting some fun out 
of the boat cruising in the 
Caribbean. 

Last night the American- 
registered maxi Atlantic Priva- 
teer. skippered by Peter KutteL 
was expected io take fifth place 
on elapsed time on this final leg 
from Uruguay, followed by 
Fazer Finland early ibis 
morning.

won the Westerly Crebbin Cup 
elimination trials to win a final 
place in the Lymingion Cup

The result was in dispute long 
after racing had ended between 
the six hopeful helmsmen with 
Lawrence Mead, Jon Ellis and 
Roger Yeoman all sharing the 
same fourth win points score 
and was only resolved after a 
protest between Mead and Ellis 
following a pre-start incident in

TTic forgotten men of British The Vii

recognition yesterday at 
Ilkeston, as the Victoria Club 
from Osseu in Yorkshire de- 
feated Richmond Town, a more 
fashionable London dub. in the 
American Express National 
Challenge finals to earn promo- 
tion to the National Premier 
League. 

Richmond Town emerged 
from Saturday's semi-finals 
with real chances of a unique 
double in these last stages of 
county leagues involving some 
6.000 club teams throughout the 


Victoria Cub team is led 
by Steve Bateman and Christy 
Willstrop, a pair of mie-gm 
Yorkshire professionals who led 
the domestic field through all its 
junior stages but fell from notice 
as the game broadened 
When the invitations went 
out two years back to form the 
National League, the little six- 
court club at Ossett. near Wake- 
field. was nowhere near 
consideration. Bateman and 
Willstrop will take pleasure 
from joining the stars the hard 
way.

McLaren’s day 
as Prost 
leads another 
procession 

From John Blunsden, Monte Curio 
Alain Prost scored bis 23rd take Bumdk on the inside 


world championship victory 
yesterday in recording his 
third consecutive success in 
the Monaco Grand Prix.The 
78-lap race, which Prost led 
throughout apart from six laps 
around the midway point after 
his stop for fresh tyres, was a 
triumph for the Marlboro 
McLaren team, with Keke 
Rosbeig following his team 
partner home in second {dace 
25 seconds in arrears. 

Yet this was a race which 
Prost did not expect to win, 
despite starting it from pole 
position. **I felt that on this 
track the IPS Lotus of Ayrton 
Senna and the two Williams 
cars would have an advantage, 
so to win after all is particular* 
ly important to me,” he said. 

”1 think it will make the world 
championship much more 
open this year, and I think that 
we now have a real chance of 
taking the title again.” 

Senna, who finished a dis- 
tant third after what be de- 
scribed as “a very hard race — 
very exhausting” said that the 
combination of Prost and the 
McLaren was simply too 
much on the day. Even 
Rosberg was unable to make 
much impression on the race 
leader. “Early on I managed to 
dose the gap behind Alain by 
about half a second a lap, but I 
was taking too much out of my 
' tyres in doing so, so I decided 
1 it was best to settle for second 
place. The 1-2 result is very 
good for the team, and I hope 
we can do it again soon, only 
the other way round.” 

Nigel Mansell, the only 
. other driver to complete the 
' fall race distance, did his best 
for the Canon Williams team 
with a car which proved to be 
down on engine power and 
short of traction, while Nelson 
Piquet was a lap behind in the 
other car, in seventh place, 
after intermittent gear selec- 
tion troubles. A late challenge 
by Mansell to Senna's third 
place had to be abandoned 
when be found his visor 
covered with an oil film as 
soon as he dosed on the other 
, car. 

. Ten laps from the end of the 
race the dosest-fought battle, 
which was for seventh, eighth 

and ninth places, quickly TyrrB»-Reriaijlt74iap6. 12 Jonathan 
turned to disaster for Patrick f’ almer West Zakspeed 74 
Tam bay, who was extremdy 
lucky to escape unharmed 
_ from an accident in which his 
Lobt-Fdrd was launched over 
the back of Martin Brundle's 


entering die right-handed Mi- 
rabeau, but Bnindle was com- 
mitted to his line and as be 
turned in to the comer the 
Lola was squeezed on to the 
side of the trade and launched 
into the air perilously close to 
Brundle's head. Brundle's car 

arkT^e* was^ able ttwhiw^t 
slowly back to the pits where it 
was. retired. 

A less spectacular incident 
early in the race involved the 
other drivers of the same two 
teams when Alan Jones at- 
tempted to pass Philippe 
Streiff at the Tabac corner, 
failed, and again the two cars 
collided. Streiff resumed the 
race after his Tyrrell had been 
fitted with a replacement 
wheel at the pits, and finished 
eleventh but Jones had to 
abandon his car in a lay-by 
near the scene of the incident 

Once again the Monaco 
Grand Prix had turned into an 
essentially processional race, 
which this year brought an 
unusually low retirement rate 
only eight of the 20 starters 
failed to finish, but they 
included both the Brabhams, 
which had been demonstrat- 
ing rapidly improving form 
during practice. 

Michele Alboreto, after 
holding an early fourth place 
with his Ferrari. later dropped 
back and then had to abandon 
the race with turbo trouble, 
while another promising drive 
by Gerhard Berger, earning 
him sixth place in bis 
Benetton-BMW by lap 40, 
came to an end soon after- 
wards with a drive-line failure.

THE OVAL: Yorkshire (4pts) 
beat Surrey by six wickets. 

A rollicking innings by 
Bairstow yesterday enabled 
Yorkshire to take their playing 
record for the season to five 
wins in five assorted matches — 
two in the championship, two in 
the Sunday League and one in 
the Benson and Hedges, with the 
prospect of another at Trent 
Bridge today. In 12 overs, 
Bairstow made 83 not out so 
that Surrey, who had been 
having things very much then- 
own way when be came in, were 
beaten as early as the 37th over. 

Bairstow’s partner was Met- 
calfe, who played his game and 
ran excellently for his captain. 
With 15 overs left, Yorkshire 
still needed 119 — bat with 
Bairstow bitting with complete 
certainty the target was reduced 
so rapidly that uarfce, the most 
dangerous bowler in the match, 
was left at the end -with two 
overs unbowled. Three 
successive sixes by Bairstow oft 
Pocock in the 35th over virtu- 
ally settled the issue. 

The fact that Clinton, tbongh 
he carried his bat Ah* Surrey, 
scored fewer than half (hear 
runs, reflects the support he had • 
along the way. Stewart and 
Richards were both lively 
contributors — there were few 
better strokes in the match than 
Stewart's cover drive offhis first 
ball — and no one wasted any 
time. To start with, too, the boll 
moved about oft the seam, 
which made sense of Baiistow’s 
decision to put Surrey in. 


Both sides were fitU ofbowiers 
classified in the pocket reference 
books as being“RM” (right me- 
dium) which they certainly 
were, and not yet instantly 
identifiable. For Yorkshire, Jar- 
vis, Fletcher and a pair of 
Hartleys fell into that category, 
for Surrey, FeJtham, Monk- 
house and Doughty did. On 
paper the difference was pro- 
vided by the Barbadian, Oarke, 
whose turn h was to play ahead 
of the Trinidadian, Gray. It is 
good to see Yorkshire as the 
early leaders in the county 
championship, though without* 
any pace to speak of it will be 
remarkable if they stay there. 

Clinton went along at his own 
pace, scoring mostly to leg. and 
making some good lofted hits to 
the mid-wicket boundary to- 
wards the end of his innings. 
Surrey scored at four runs an 
over for their first 20 overs, and 
at eight an over for their last lea 
— while wickets were being 
sacrificed in the chase. In the 
117 balls he received, Clinton 
hit one six and seven fours and 
survived one chance, to square 
leg oft Carrick when he was 34. 
It was not the first time he has 
shown his partiality for the 
Yorkshire attack: his best first 
class score of 192 was made 
against them, also at the Oval 
After Jesty, given the new 
ball, had bowled Yorkshire's 
opening pair and Pocock, in his 
first over, had induced Love to 
hit a short ball back to him, 
Yorkshire were left with a . 


to catch up with the 
Clarke bowled horribly 
well oft his Sunday run and 
when Bairstow joined Metcalfe 
in the 24th over, Yorkshire were 
still only 80 for four. 

But no cause is lost to 
Bairstow. And with Clarke com- 
ing off after four overs. 
Monkhouse and Feilham took 
som e fe ar f u l punis hm enL When 
Clarke returned the previous 
eight overs had produced 76 and 
only 43 were needed now from 
seven. For Bairstow in fully csy 
that was a doddle.

Botham hits the mark 
for Somerset 


By Alan Gibson 

TAUNTON: Somerset (4pts) going wdl, the score 84. Mindful 

w.jji m — ■ of the possibility of rain, they 

burned to keep up a high scoring 
rate, but at 110, in the 26 th over, 
Wyatt was hit on the chest by a 
first ball from Danid and had to 
retire.

seventeenth over, restraining 


opening spdls by Gamer 
Botham bang followed by a 
characteristically forceful one 
from Marks, who bowled his 
eight overs through. . 

Botham bowled Slack at 
eleven. Marks had Gatting 
caught at fine leg, halfway out, at 
40. Radley was stumped, next 
ball, and then Barlow was 
caught, also at fine leg. There 
was a deep square leg, as well, 
but the Middlesex batsmen did 
not seem able to resist aiming in 
that direction. Marks, with his 
gaze of youthful innocence and 
innocuous-looking flight, 
continued to deceive the best. 

That was four good batsmen 
back in the pavilion, but once 
Marks had bowled his eight 
overs the attack became less 
testing and Butcher and 
Downton settled into an 
increasingly prosperous partner- 
ship. The score was only 50 after 
20 overs, 128 after 30. Downton 
was caught at deep mid-on with 
the score on 138 with Emburey 
following almost at once. 
Butcher, however, remained un- 
wonted and a final score of 196 
for seven, with a slow outfield 
(although the pitch was also 
slow) gave Middlesex, 
the better chance. 

Somerset have made a dis- 
appointing start to the season, 
but still manage to attract large, 
enthusiastic crowds. Roebudt 
and Wyatt scored 32 in the first 
10 overs, a feir start. Roebuck, 
wearing a white bdmet, looked 
much more tike a dashing white 
sergeant than the usual staid 
quartermaster. 

After 20 overs, they were stiD 


Hardy replaced Wyatt, which 
seemed rather an odd choice 
with Richards in the wings. He 
fell leg before .to Danid tor 10 
and then came Richards, who 
bit a couple of sixes and was 
bowled by Fraser. 

Then we had, to delighted 
screams from the younger popu- 
lous, Botham. He began cau- 
tiously, but saw Roebuck 
splendidly caught at square leg 
by Hughes, who bumped into 
the advertising boarding as he 
Ml. With four overs to go 
Somerset needed 30. Bo tham hit 
a six. With three overs, they 
needed 21. Maries was bowled. 
With two overs, 17 — Botham 
was not getting enough of the 
bowling. They needed 15 in the 
last over and two sixes in the last 
three balls - Botham did it with 
two whacking blows, both off 
DanieL It cheered up the crowds 
quite a bit.

Scotland 
end cup 
drought 

Scotland achieved an historic 
win in the Benson and Hedges 
Cup when they beat Lancashire 
by thiee runs In an ex tre mely 
exciting finish at Perth 
yesterday. 

Set to make 157 to win, 
La n cas hi re quickly lost Fowler, 
leg before to Dcthie, and though 
they seemed to be eomfintobly 
placed at 72 for tiuee. when 
another .85 runs were needed 
from 20.2 overs, Scotland began 
to gel on top. 

With only three wickets in 
hand Lancashire still required 
46 to win off the test seven overa 
and the task eventually proved 
too much for them. It was 
Scotland's first triumph in 26 
Benson and. Hedges Gap 
m atc he s. 

In the John Player League; 
Warwickshire were put in to bat 
by N ottingham shire at Trent 
Bridge. Lloyd and Amiss gave 
Warwickshire the sound start 
they needed before Rice bowled 
Amiss for 40 with the score on 
73. 

When Lloyd was bowled by 
Saxelby, another 75 runs had 
been added and Humpage was 
in the throes of moving up a 
gear. ‘ Rice, the best of 
Nottinghamshire's bowlers 
eventually got his man, who had 
included a brace of sixes in a 
hard-hit 86, and with the wick- . 
ets ofSmilh and McMillan, Rice 
finished with lour for 49, as 
Warwickshire came in well sat- 
isfied at 236 fin* six. 

Nottinghamshire found the 
total beyond their reach and tost 
by 48 runs. 

Idttdfn Mre had won the 
toss at St Helens, but in choos-

DERBY: Derbyshire (4pts) 
beta Sussex by eight wickets. 

It was Old Players’ Day at 
Derby yesterday, a score of the 
county s former heroes turning 
up to view the proceedings and 
reminisce about days past. With 
the new stands opened by the 
Duke of Devonshire before 
tbestart, continuing the 
ground’s transformation, it is 
much less bleak now than in the 
days when • Arnold Hamer 
grafted away on green tops and 
Les Jackson exploited them 

lelhaDy. 

Not even the i mpro vements, 
however, can totally protect the 
ground from its openness to the 
elements and with the wind 
whistling across it under a pray 
cloud cover yesterday, Sussex 
did not find it an enjoyable 
occupation. 

They began with a misleading 
flurry. Green alicrnatelygropmg 
nervously and playing: purpose- 
ful shots to set the scoreboard 
ticking over rapidly, 38 coming 
off the first eight overs. The 
introduction - of Miller and 
Finney put the brake on and. 
from tire moment Green de- 
parted, swinging across the line. . 
the bowlers were in coatroL 

Their ascendancy was con- 
firmed by the arrival ofHoli 
Only Imran, and be with 
culty. resisted to any 
reaching his fifty after a stay 
31 oven 

The efforts of Imran were not 
enough, although fin* a time, 
with Jones moving the baU away 
disconcertingly, 163 looked a 
sizeable target. Anderson, who 
had not looked happy, and HOI 
edged to Gould. 

Imran tried to stem the flow, 
tot hi s colleagues were less 
effective at containment, and 
Banietz, after an uncertain start, 
seemed to have put his unhappy 
winter behind him as he played 
some thumping drives. Morris 
was quicker into his stride. 
Reeve in particular coming in 
for some harsh treatment, and 
the two reached their 50s in 
consecutive overs, their un- 
beaten stand of 132

CHELTENHAM: The Indians, tri, Tantalized with (tight and 


with ail their second innings 
wickets in hand, bsetd Gloucester- 
shire by 83 runs. 

After Gloucestershire de- 
clared 51 Tims behind, fire 
Indian tourists were left an 
awkward 35 mxhates* ha win g 
yesterday when their maurfo at 
the Victoria ground continued 
here. Lawrence bowled at his 
festest on an unhelpihl pitch ten 
Snkkaxnh and r -*mH» nwmy ii 
to hold out. 

Earlier Quran, who hit a six 
and right fours, was the most 
assertive of tire county’s bats- 
men. He and Payne shared an 
unfinished stand of ,61 in 14 
overs before the declaration. 

A cold, windy day made it 
necessary for the Indians to 
wear two or more . sweaters, as 
indeed can. be the case in 
Amritsar, Jail under, or other 
northern pans of their own 
country. 

During fleeting moments of 
sunshine, the adjacent Coiswold 
hills looked their best. In tire 
Civil War they braised a Roy- 
alist. camp; these days the 
GCHQ radio masts are a re- 
minder of the modern worid- 

Considering the bleak con- 
ditions, the Indians bended and 
fielded with commendable ' 
tightness. Little was given away : 
by the seamen, who were used 
in short ^reHs. Yadav, the off- 
spinner, mid the lefbarra Shasp 


spin. 

Prabfaakar swung the ball 
freely aixL bad Stovold caught 
behind; Romanies mistimeda 
drive and was . held at 
nndmdceL Atirey. who was 
subdued, and Barobridge, more 
ambitious, with cuts and drives, 
added 81 together. 

Athey was then caught be- 
hind, - trying to sweep. 
Bain bridge was .caught one- 
handed tv Srikkanth diving to 
bis left at short leg. 

Yadav took these wickets in 
nrabaHs but Curran rested the 
initiative with a splendid 
straight six off turn. Lloyds 
helped put on 70 before Binny 
look a return catch, right- 
handed, to dismiss him.

jourruns. 

By virtue of some tirfit out- 
cricket and teUiqg contributions 
with bat and ball by tire captain, 
Hampshire won th« surpris- 
ingly low scoring John Player 
matc h. Mark Nicholas, who 
made tire highest score on either 
.side, 41, took three wickets. 
Lamb's included, in seven balls. 
His figures of four for 41 were 
his best in this co mp e titi on. 

From 28 for four, North- 
amptonshire rallied through a 
stand of 73 between Harper and 
Cape! but once the West Indian 
all-rounder bad been run out, 
tire return of Marshall — and 
Nicholas — was too much for 
them. In most respects, this 
match did not accord with the 
norm for John Player cricket. 

Hampshire did not bat well. 
They had been put in on a damp 
pitch and largely contrived to 
get themselves out. Greenidge, 
having hit Maflender out of tire 
ground, tried again and boled- 
out_ to deep mid-off Robin 
Smith went for a duck and 
Turner, sent back by Teny, was 
run out at the non-striker's end. 

More than anything, Hamp- 
shire were unable to get on top 
of the spinners. Neither Nick 

Cook nor Harper is a prodigious 
spinner of the ball, but they kept 
excellent control, again bowling 
together. Teny was bowled by 
perhaps the only ball Cook 
turned and of the 21 runs 
Harper conceded from his eight 
overs, nine came off one. ' 
Hampshire were pulled round

Norman Gifford, the 
Warwickshire captain, scram- 
bled a single off the last ball to 
give his side a one-wicket vic- 
tory over the holders, Leicester- 
shire, in a Benson mid Hedges 
Cup zonal match at Grace Road 
on Saturday. He came to the 
wicket after six wickets had 
tumbled in the final 20 overs as 
Warwickshire almost threw 
away them dunces after restrict- 
ing Leicestershire to 192 for 
seven. 

Gifford remained calm in the 

Iasi over tension but the fore- 
most Warwickshire performer 
was McMillan, a South African, 
who struck a half-century in 93 
balls. Leicestershire's defeat was 
their second so for and their 
chances of qualifying fix- the 
knockout stage look remote, 
especially as De rbyshi re won 
their second game hi their 
group, beating Northampton- 
shire by 38 runs at 
Northampton. 

* 


197 policy of casting around among 
j fT half a dozen bowlers could be 
said to have been successful, for 
Leicestershire failed to settle 
and continued to lose wickets is 
their quest for runs. 

By the time they were fin- 
ished, 132 for six scarcely 
looked enough. So il proved, for 
whh the first four in the order 
making runs, dam organ got 

home to gain their first victory 
with 3 J overs to spare.

THE 


TIMES 



proving itself 


second to none 


By Stuart Jones, 
Football Correspondent 


ROLL OF HONOUR 


It is a chilling thought that, 
but for unwittingly contribut- 
ing to their own downfall by 
scoring two own goals against 
Queen's Park Rangers in the 
Milk Cup semi-final. Liver- 
pool would have been expect- 
ed to beat Oxford United last 
month and thus achieve a 
clean sweep. Instead, after 
Saturday's 3-1 defeat of 
Everton, they had to be satis- 
fied merely with the double. 

As it is. Dalglish's first 
season in charge has been 
buried beneath an avalanche 
of honours. His team matched 
the feats of Tottenham 
Hotspur in 1961 and Arsenal 
in 1971, and he himself was 
awarded the title of manager 
of the year as well as the 
freedom of his home town of 
Glasgow. 

Providing Everton are not 
tempted to sell Lineker, the 
player of the year who took his 
total for his remarkable season 
to 40 goals, and Liverpool 
similarly retain Rush, who 
dairned’a mere 32. only a wild 
optimist would foresee the 
end of Merseyside’s crushing 
domination next season. It 
could stretch far into the 
future. 

A banner cruelly pro- 
claimed that ‘'Manchester is a 
trophy-free zone”. So. it might 
have added, is London. Yet it 
is doubtful that any two other 
city rivals would have put on a 
performance of higher quality 
on the pitch or a display of 
such warm-hearted friendli- 
ness on the terraces. 

Since the occasion was wit-

emerged from their own em- 
barrassing confusion near the 
byline amid a flurry of angry 
blows and words. Liverpool 
seemingly, had not only lost 
control of their own destiny, 
they were losing their tempers 
and their dignity as well. 

But fete was to show them 
the way out of their chaos and 
to usher Kenny Dalglish up 
the steps of Wembley and into 
another page of the game's 
hisloiy.

nessed by an estimated audi- 
ence of 200 1 


i million in some 20 
countries across the globe, the 
behaviour of the crowd was 
crucial to the nation's reputa- 
tion that was damaged so 
severely in Brussels a year ago. 
It was appropriate the season 
of rehabilitation should dose 
as it did. 

Wembley echoed to the 
chants of “Meiseyside” (they 
might as well have been 
“EverpooP or “Liverton”). 
The red ribbons were tied to 
the FA Cup but, though 
Kendall’s men and their sup- 
porters were obliged once 
more to bow to their 
neighbours* supremacy, the 
hand of friendship was 
wrapped around the whole of 
the national stadium. 

In front of Liverpool it was 
not always so amicable. Liver- 
pool had been in an uncharac- 
teristic mess. Disjointed, 
distracted and in disarray, 
they were fighting not so much 
for supremacy over their 
neighbours but, at the height 
of their distress, they were 
seen to be scrapping with each 
other. Never before had they 
indulged in such public 
disagreement 

At the end of several min- 
utes of extreme discomfort 


Barcelona are being consid- 
ered to play Liverpool In the 
FA Charity Shield match at 
Wembley in August “It is a 
possibility Barcelona could 
come to Wembley, but no more 
than that at the moment” a 
spokesman for the Football 
Association said. 

The Charity Shield is usual- 
ly contested by the previous 
season’s League champions 
and FA Cup winners, but 
Liverpool’s double success 
precludes this. 


series of bone-shaking chal- 
lenges. That was predictable 


enough. That Everton should 
initially take d 


lly take charge was not so 
surprising either. The pres- 
ence of Moun (field. which had 
been in doubt assured they 
remained a settled side at full 
strength. 

The absence of Gillespie, 
suffering from a debilitating 
virus and ruled out only hours 
before the kick-off, suggested 
that Liverpool might be unset- 
tled. They were. 

Grobbelaar flapped comi- 
cally at a throw- in and Nicol 
clearly baulked Sharp, but the 
error was not punished by 
Everton nor the offence by the 
referee. After Reid had offered 
Lineker a view of an open 
road over Hansen’s left shoul- 
der. Liverpool were soon 
trailing. 


the opposing goalkeeper and 
left back illustrated that the 
composure of Liverpool, held 
together almost single- 
handedly by Molby. had 
reached breaking point. Bum 
was Everton who were 
dismantled. 

In confirming his accuracy 
as a striker. Rush not only 
turned the final upside down 
and won the trophy that had 
eluded Liverpool for a dozen 
years. He also claimed the 
right to enter the land of 
legendary predators, a place 
reserved for the likes of 
Greaves, Law and Best over 
the last three decades. Once 
Molby had encouraged him to 
slip past Mimms and roll in 
Liverpool’s equalizer, the 
odds were equally high that 
they would become tire third 
dub this century to complete 
the double. 

Rush has scored in 121 of 
Liverpool's fixtures so far and 
they have yet to lose any of 
them. Indeed, they have 
drawn only 19. 

Molby, the most consistent 
individual throughout the af- 
ternoon, designed the second 
goal for Johnston and the 
third, with the assistance of 
Whelan, for Rush. That the 
Welshman should finish an- 
other of his explosive breaks 
with a disappointingly soft 
chip was unusually merciful. 

Howard Kendall’s side have 
ended their domestic pro- 
gramme with two medals and 
are sure to collect another 
whenever the final of the 
Screen Sport Super Cup is 
eventually staged. Their oppo- 
nents happen to be LiverpooL

EQUESTRIANISM 


Top riders 
boycott 


royal show 


By Jenny MacArthur 

Harvey Smith, Nick Skel- 
ton and Malcolm Pyrah were 
among several top show- 
jumpers who refused to com- 
pete in yesterday's Toshiba 
Grand Prist at the Royal 
Windsor Horse Show after 
complaining that the ground in 
the mam arena was too hard. 

Smith, speaking on behalf 
of the riders at a vociferous 
meeting with the show com- 
mittee's representative, Joe 
Moore, said they had asked 
the organizers “several times” 
since the start of the show on 
Thursday for the main arena 
to be watered, but nothing had 
happened. “If yon provided 
grounds like this at Windsor 
racecourse yon wouldn't race 
on it, would yon?” Smith 
asked. He was supported by 
afl the top riders at the show, 
most notably by Pyrah who 
palled out of Thursday's jump- 
off because of the ground and 
by Skelton, who had not 
jumped his top horse. Raffles 
St James, all week because of 
the ground. 

Moore, speaking for the 
committee, said that the first 
request the show had had to 
water the ground was on 
Saturday night when, in addi- 
tion to the riders. Colonel 
Philip Drew, the chief judge, 
had asked for it to be watered. 
After inspecting the ground on 
Saturday night the committee 

decided against watering. “It 

would have turned the arena 
into a skating rink," 
Moore said. 

Pyrah said they were not 
getting at Windsor in particu- 
lar. “Fifty per cent of 
showgrounds are worrying afl 
the tune about the bars, the 
stands and the gat* — tire l° c t 
thing they seem to be thinking 
of is the horses.”

Aberdeen’s finishing chills Depleted 

the Hearts of Midlothian Welsh 


By Hugh Taylor 


are beaten 


Aberdeen won the Scottish 
Cup at Hampden Park be- 
cause they operated with the 
chilling efficiency and devas- 
tating finishing which has 
made them Scotland's most 
successful team of the 1980s. 

Their 3-0 win against Heart 
of Midlothian on Saturday 
gave them the trophy for the 
fourth time in five years. 
Drawing on their vast experi- 
ence of the big event, and 
playing with an authoritative 
approach, they won, despite 
Hearts's agression, with the 
same facility shown in dispos- 
ing of the other Edinburgh 
club, Hibernian, in the Skol 
CupfinaL 

No one in the crowd of 
62,841 would disagree with 
Alex Ferguson, the Aberdeen 
manager, when he said after- 
wards: “On this form I doubt 
that any team could beat 
Aberdeen in a cup final” 
Then he paid tribute to Hearts 
by saying: “I am as disap- 
pointed as anyone that they 
foiled to get anything out of it, 
and no matter what we 
achieved the season belongs to 
them.” 


Yet, what promised to be 
the most glorious period in 
Hearts's long history ended on 
the sourest of notes. Despite a 
gallant fight, there were signs, 
m a hesitant defence and the 
unusual failure to seize two 
fine chances, that they had not 
recovered from the previous 
week's heartache, when the 
league championship was 
snatched from their grasp. 


even greater 
season.” 


things next 


Nor did Hearts lose grace- 
fully. Their captain, Kidd, 
became only the third player 
to be ordered off in a Scottish 
Cup finaL This was for an act 
of folly when, after having 
been cautioned earlier, he 
.threw the ball at an opponent 
Hearts also had three other 
players booked which means 
they have to pay a fine of 
£3,-750 out of the £7,500 they 
collect as runners-up. Not- 
withstanding; Alex MacDon- 
ald, their manager, said: “The 
3-0 defeat is not as bad as it 
sounds. 1 thought we made a 
final of it and 1 am proud of 
the way we played this season. 
As we are now in the UEFA 
Cup I believe we can go on to 


They have a long way to go 
before they can equal the 
professionalism of Aberdeen, 
who may not be the country’s 
best loved team but who again 
showed why they are so 
respected by the greatest dubs 
in Europe. 

Their match winners were 
Hewitt, a deadly sharp shooter 
who scored two goals and 
became the man of the match 
for the seventh time in aqj- 
ties this season, and Weir, a 
sometimes unpredictable 
winger who came back to his 
best to bewilder the Hearts's 
defence. Stark was the other 
Aberdeen marksman, scoring 
the third goal with a spectacu- 
lar diving header. .

TENNIS: WILD CARDS MEAN A TAME BRITISH CHALLENGE THIS YEAR 


How are the Wimbledon 



By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Corespondent 


Britain's modest challenge 
for Wimbledon's hundredth 
men's singles championship 
may be unusually restricted. 
Players whose world rankings 
are not good enough to get 
them straight into the draw 
must either qualify or apply 
for one of the eight places 
reserved for wild cards: that is, 
players invited at the discre- 
tion of the tournament com- 
mittee. This year the domestic 
claim to wild cards will have 
strong competition. 

The point is that, for a 
variety of reasons, some for- 
merly distinguished Wimble- 
don competitors have plunged 
down the rankings, but may 
reasonably hope for wild 
cards. Among them are Pat 
Cash, Vitas Gerulaitis, Chris 
Lewis and Peter McNamara. 
“So many good players have 
slipped out of our direct 
acceptances that the wild card 


situation will be a lot more 
difficult this year ” Alan Mills, 
the Wimbledon referee, said. 

He added that John 
McEnroe (“if he hasn’t 
entered”) may also make a late 
decision to emerge from tem- 
porary retirement and ask for 
a wild card. Entries close 
today. 

All this must be a sot 
thought for the six 
players and the rest of the 16- 
man field in the satellite 
“Masters” tournament that 
will begin tomorrow at Lee- 
on-Solent. The women have a 
draw of 32 but there is no 
place in it for Natalie Zvereva, 
aged 15, of Minsk, the unlikely 
heroine of a five-week Lawn 
Tennis Association circuit 
that is approaching its modest 
climax. 

The inflexible uniformity of 
modern tournament regula- 
tions insists that because she 


is too much of a newcomer to 
have a world ranking. Miss 
Zvereva could- not even be 
sure of a plats in the qualify- 
ing competition. So she has 
dropped out of the cast and 
gone home to school. These 
days- tournament organizers 
have little scope for applying 
common sense in the public 
interest 

Miss Zvereva has played in 
the last three events on the 
circuit. She qualified at 
Queen's Cub and reached the 
semi-finals. She qualified at 
Sutton . and was runner-up. 
She was granted a wild card at 
Bournemouth and beat 
Kuniikq Okamoto, of Osaka 
by 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 in Saturday's 
finaL Her -earlier victims at 
Bournemouth Included the 
Queen’s Cub and Sutton 
winners. 

Miss Zvereva came within 
minutes of disqualification 


last Saturday. The language 
barrier led to a misunder- 
standing about the order of 
play and Miss Okamoto. cour- 
teously waiving the right to a 
walkover, waited half an hour 
for the innocently tardy Rus- 
sian to turn up. That left the 
decision to Mills, the referee, 
who did .the decent thing but 
could not hang about for ever. 
Just in time. Miss Zvereva let 
him off the book. 

The men's winner was De- 
nys Maasdorp. aged 22. of 
Port Elizabeth, otherwise 
known as “The Gorilla”, who 
beat Thierry Pham, of France 
by 6-4, -7-5. Maasdorp has 
been a consistently tough 
competitor in singles and 
doubles.. In the past, four 
weeks the; only player to stop 
him short of the singles semi- 
finals has been Andrew Castle, 
of Taunton, who has won 
£1,080 Lendl beaten, page' 29 


SPORT IN BRIEF 


Speed 
merchant 


Rick Mears has added to his 
collection of Indianapolis 500 
records by driving the four 
fastest official laps in the 
history of the event, to earn 
pole position for the race on 
May 25. 

Mears, winner of the race in 
1979 and 1984. set a record in 
his March-Cosworth car with 
a speed of 2 17.581 mphonhis 
first qualification lap and took 
the pole with a four-lap record 
average of 216.828 mph. Af- 
terwards Mears said: “ It 
doesn’t mean that much, but it 
is good for the safety factor of 
being up front in case some- 
thing happens.”

Called up 


Mexico City (Reuter) — 


Brazil have called up Josi Mar, 
the Botafogo defender, as a 
last-minute replacement for 
Leandro, who pulled out of 
their World Cup squad last 
week. Leandro cited personal 
problems for his derision. Kit 
Brazilian pressmen, with the 
squad at their Mexican head- 
quarters in Toluca, 30 miles 
west of Mexico City, said they 
felt he was angry at the 
dropping of his friend Renaio 
from the squad. 



PSV clinch it 


PSV Eindhoven clinched 
the Dutch football league title 
for the eighth time at the 
weekend with a crushing 8-2 
home victory over Go Ahead 
Eagles, of Devemer. Leaders 
since early in the season, they 
finally put the title beyond the 
reach of Ajax Amsterdam, 
their nearest rivals, and 
booked a place in next 
season’s .European Cup with 
two matches still to play.
