From Michael Binyon, Washington 


President Reagan was un- 
daunted yesterday by the dra- 
matic Democratic gains in the 
Senate, which swept away the 
Republican majority and left 
the President facing concerted 
opposition in both Houses of 
Congress. 

The White House insisted 
there would be no change 
whatsoever in the President's 
political agenda. He would 
continue his policies on 
reforming the economy, in- 
Teas ing US military strength 
ind seeking arms control with 
the Russians, for all of which 
he had the support of the 
American people. He would 
also seek to build coalitions on 
individual issues in Congress 
to get his policies enacted. 

“Of course there will be a 
change in tactics.” Mr Larry 
Speakes, the White House 
spokesman, said. But he said 
Mr Reagan had a history of 
working successfully with 
opposition parties. 

And in a note of defiance, he 
said Mr Reagan knew that his 
long, hard campaigning on 
behalf of Republican can-

The White House was 
pleased by the Republican 
gain of 10 governorships. This 
brought the total number of 
states now with Republican 
governors to 24, covering half 
the nation's population . And 
Mr Speakes noted that the

Alabama and North Carolina. 

They continued with the 
predicted comfortable win of 
Ms Barbara Mikulski over her 
woman opponent in Mary- 
land, pointing up the great loss 
to the Republicans caused by 
the retirement of the liberal 
Senator Charles Mathias. 

As the results came in from 
further west, they went on to 
capture South and North Da-

stales devastated by the col- 
lapse of the farm economy,

Russia offers talks 
on human rights 

From Andrew McEwen, Diplomatic Correspondent, Vienna 
The Soviet Union yesterday and Britain were among the 35 


startled the West by offering to 
hold an international con- 
ference on human rights in 
Moscow. 

Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, 
the Soviet Foreign Minister, 
made the proposal a few hours 
before his first meeting since 
the Reykjavik summit with 
Mr George Shultz, the Ameri- 
can Secretary of State. Both 
men addressed the European 
Conference on Security and 
Co-operation (CSCE) before 
tbeir bilateral meeting at the 
US Embassy in Vienna. 

The Shevardnadze initia- 
tive stole some of Mr Shultz’s 
thunder when be launched a 
forthright but familiar con- 
demnation on the Soviet 
record on human rights. 

The Soviet Foreign Min- 
ister suggested that the CSCE 
assembly should mandate a 
separate Moscow conference 
to cover the whole range of 
human contact information, 
culture and education. 

He said that the Soviet 
Union attached “paramount 
significance” to the Helsinki 
accords covering respect for 
human rights. 

The Soviet Union, the US 


signatories of the 1975 Hel- 
bink; Fical Act which con- 
tained specific commitments 
on human rights. 

Mr Shultz, in his speech, 
accused the Soviet Union of 
“direct violations” of these 
commitments. 

“Within the Soviet Union 
41 members of a citizens 
group established to monitor

“There are many more such

basic human rights. One of 
that country's most distin- 
guished citizens. Dr Andrei

nicado, cut off from the world 
in the dosed dty of Gorky.” 

Mr Shultz and Mr Shev- 
ardnadze indicated that their 
two meetings, last night and 
again today, would focus on 
deciding the situation created

Serious corrosion 
in two reactors 
at Hinkley Point 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


The future of ten of 
Britain’s nuclear power sta- 
tions is in doubt after the 
discovery of serious corrosion 
at the two reactors at Hinkley 
Point A in Somerset. 

There are 10 similar 
Magnox stations in continu- 
ous operation in Britain, 
providing about 8 per cent of 
the countiy’s electricity. Pre- 
mature closure of a number 
would put an enormous strain 
on the grid and could even 
lead to power cuts in a hand 
winter. 

In any event the faults at 
HiokJej will seriously affcc; 
the Central Generating 
Beard's plans to extend the 
life of the older power stations 
to 30 years. 

The fault was found during 
a regular maintenance shut- 
down of one reactor of the 
first-generation Magnox plant 
Engineers had believed until 
now that this particular type 
of corrosion was impossible. 

Government nuclear safety 
inspectors are examining the 
affected refuelling system. The 
Central Electricity Generating 
Board said yesterday that the 
defective parts had been iso- 
lated, and the reactor re- 
started. 

The same trouble affects the 
other Magnox reactor at the 
station, and that is being shut 
down. Hinkley Point A came 
into operation 20 years ago. 

The safety inspectors are 
examining Britain’s other 
Magnox atomic power sta- 
tions for signs of ageing that 
could lead to their early 
closure. 

The trouble centres on 
components called stand- 
pipes, which are channels in 


the concrete roof covering the 
steel nuclear reactor vessel, 
which bolds the nuclear core. 
Nuclear fuel rods are slotted 
through the standpipes, that 
are also lined with steeL 

The steel lining in a number 
of channels has started to 
corrode and buckle inwards, 
making it difficult to load and 
unload fuel dements. 

The faults do not pose a 
serious threat to workers or 
the general public. If the pipes 
did fracture, there would be a 
leak of radioactive gas but it 
would not threaten the safety 
of ibe reactor itself as hap- 
pened at Chernobyl 

Signs of corrosion appeared 
a year ago, and the CEGB 
permanently blocked off some 
standpipes. 

A report by nuclear inspec- 
tors says: “There is no logical 
argument fra this problem 
except corrosion. There must 
be impurities in concrete from 
chlorides.” 

In other words, the outside 
of the steel lining has gone 
rusty where it touches the 
concrete. The bufld-up of rust 
forces the tube to buckle 
inwards. 

The designers were sur- 
prised because they say the 
concrete is highly alkaline and 
should prevent corrosion. 

The board was hoping to 
extend the life of the Magnox 
stations to cover a gap in 
nuclear power station order- 
ing, while waiting fra a de- 
cision on the Sizewell public 
inquiry into proposals to build 
the first American-type PWR 
(pressurized water reactor) in 
Britain, on the Suffolk coast

Tebbit 
criticism 
rejected 
by BBC 

By Jotrathnn Miller 
Media Correspondent 

Senior officials of the BBC 
yesterday flatly rejected the 
allegations of the Conserva- 
tive Party chairman, Mr Nor- 
man Tebbit, that the 
corporation had been inaccu- 
rate and biased in its coverage 
of the American bombing of 
Libya in April. 

The officials accused Mr 
Tebbit and Conservative Cen- 
tral Office of making false and 
seriously misleading accusa- 
tions against the BBC’s televi- 
sion news service, and 
promised to defrrid its impar- 
tiality and political 
independence. 

At the same time, the BBC 
made it plain that it wanted to 
end its dispute with the Con- 
servative Parly. It was hoped 
that its comprehensive de- 
fence would dissuade the par- 
ty from further complaints.

Ban on The Times is illegal 


Bans on News International 
publications in public libraries 
run by three Labour-con- 
trolled councils were declared 
unlawful and quashed in the 
High Court yesterday after 
being branded politically in- 
spired and irresponsible. 

Local authorities through- 
out the country were consid- 
ering lifting similar bans in the 
wake of the High Court de- 
cision announced at 11am 
yesterday. But in the three 
London boroughs, some li- 
braries were still barring News 
International publications 
pending a meeting of socialist 
council leaders tomorrow. 

Lord Justice Watkins sitting 
with Mr Justice Kennedy, said 
the councils deliberately set 
out to punish News lnter- 


By Mark Ellis 

national with the weapon of a 
library ban over a dispute 
between Mr Rupert Murdoch, 
the publisher, and 5,500 
printworkers. 

The councils of Camden, 
Ealing and Hammersmith and 
Fulham were “absurd” to 
maintain that the ban on 
News International, the pub- 
lisher of The Times, The 
Sunday Times, The Sun, the 
News of the World, The Times 
Literary Supplement, The 
Time Educational Supple- 
ment and The Times Higher 
Educational Supplement, was 
within the spirit and letter of 
the law. 

On the contrary, they had 
ignored advice that they were 
acting illegally. 

In England about 18 local 


authorities are still banning 
News International titles, 
excluding the three brought 
before the court They are: 
Birmingham, Barnsley, Brent. 
Greenwich, Hackney, Harin- 
gey. Islington, Kirklees, 
Knowsley, Lambeth, Lewi- 
sham. Manchester, Newham, 
St Helen's. Salford, Sheffield, 
Southwark and Wal tham 
Forest. 

In Scotland at least five 
local authorities are still ban- 
ning the titles from their 
libraries. They are: Dundee, 
Dunfermline, Falkirk, Glas- 
gow and Stirling. 

In Wales, Cynon Valley 
Borough Council is the only 
local authority to maintain the 
ban. Law Report page 34

‘Safer airports’ report 
rejected by minister 


By Martin Fletcher, 

The Government yesterday 
rejected the findings of a sded 
committee which described 
security at British airports as 
piecemeal and inadequate. 

The Transport Committe 
report, released yesterday, 
called for the creation of an 
airport security inspectorate 
to draw up measures for each 
airport, to conduct spot 
checks, and if necessary to 
dose down airports. Im- 
proved safety measures would 
be financed by an air ticket 
levy. 

Mr Michael Spicer, the 
Minister for Aviation, yes- 
terday rejected the 
committee’s findings. He said 
his department already em- 


Political Reporter 

ployed aviation security 
advisers who inspected air- 
ports, and was increasing their 
number. 

He accused the committee 
of of giving “insufficient 
credit to the feet that our 
airports and our airlines have 
one of the best trade records in 
the world for security.” 

The report cites numerous 
examples of gaping security 
loopholes. It criticises the 
widespread use of sub-con- 
tracted private security firms 

Airport perimeter fences 
were sometimes non-existent 
and frequently “would pose 
no obstacle to adventurous 
vandals, let alone determined 
terrorists”. 


Archer to 
sue two 
newspapers 

Mr Jeffrey Archer, the for- 
mer Conservative party dep- 
uty chairman, who resigned 
after admitting his misjudg- 
ment in seeking to pay a 
prostitute to go abroad to 
avoid a scandal, is to sue the 
News of the World and The 
Star over allegations linking 
him with the girL 
Some senior Conservative 
politicians are encouraging the 
action as a necessary first step 
in a bid to restore the 
novelist's political career. 

Mr Archer admits using an 
intermediary to pay off 
Monica Coghlan but claims he 
never met her. 


City to work Saturday again 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 


The Stock Exchange yes- 
terday signalled its concern 
over the backlog of mis- 
matched bargains on stock 
market dealing. It sent a letter 
to market-makers and brokers 
asking them to work this 
Saturoay to help clear the 
backlog before settlement day 
for equity trading on Novem- 
ber 17. 

This week the Exchange set 
up a 14-man task force to help 
market participants with then’ 
difficulties. 

Some market-makers want 
to suspend ail stock market 
dealing for one day to allow 
time to clear the backlog. If 
any action is taken it is likely 


to be an early close to trading 
today or tomorrow. 

Kleinwort Grieveson stop- 
ped trading gilt-edged stock on 
the Exchange floor on Mon- 
day because the number of 
trades was causing an un- 
manageable backlog in mis- 
matched bargains. 

Mr Peter Clarke, head of the 
fixed interest division, 
saidCBy withdrawing from 
the floor, we have reduced the 
number of bargains by about 
60 per cent.” 

Most market-makers say 
the equity market has been 
more seriously affected than 
the gilt-edged market 

There are roughly 59,000 


unmatched transactions out- 
standing - equivalent to a 
day’s market turnover. 

Most of the trouble is with 
market participants’ unfemit 
iarity with the settlement sys- 
tem and the volume of trades, 
rather than with the Stock 
Exchange’s computer system. 

Gearing die smaller bar- 
gains is causing more trouble 
than settling with huge institu- 
tional clients. Dealers find it 
easier to check unmatched 
bargains verbally with institu- 
tional clients. 

Firms are attempting to 
settle the larger trades first 
because a mistake on these 
would prove more costly. 


The M4 rapist 
admits killing 
of prostitute 

A man described as a 
psychopath yesterday pleaded 
guilty at the Central Criminal 
Court to the manslaughter of a 
London prostitute and a series 
of attacks which earned him 
the title of the “M4 rapist”. 

Sir James Mishin, the Re- 
corder of Loudon, was told 
that three psychiatrists ' had 
agreed that John Steed, aged 
23, from south London, suf- 
fered from a mental 
abnormality. 

After being told that Steed 
-would have to go to prison 
the judge said he would pass 
sentence on Monday. , 


Poll boost for 
Tories in fight 
to retain power 

By Robin Oakley, Political Editor 


The Conservative Party 
terday emerged from the _ 
gest polling exercise conduc- 
ted since the last general 
election with a 3.5 per cent 
lead over Labour, making 
them dear favourites to win 
the next election. 

A Marplan poll, conducted 
for the Press Association, 
covering 750 representative 
electors in each of 12 regions, 
put support for the Conser- 
vatives at 41 per cent. Labour 
37.5 per cent, SDP/Liberal 
Alliance 19 per cent, and 
others 2-5 per cent. 

The result of the poll of 
9,000 electors will be a Mow to 
the Labour Party and an 
encouraging fillip to Tory 
morale on the eve Of the 
autumn statement by Mr 
Nigel Lawson, Chancellor of 
the Exchequer, and what is 
peeled to be the last Queen's 
Speech in the cunent Parlia- 
ment. 

The poll is dear confirma- 
tion of the Conservative 
recovery since Parliament be- 
gan its summer recess in 
August. Labour had consis- 
tently led the polls by as much 
as 6 per cent all year. 

In the five major pons 
conducted since this year's 
round of party conferences, 
the Conservatives have been 
two points behind Labour in 
one, one point behind in 
another, level in a third, and 
leading by 3 J per cent and 4 
per cent in the latest two. 

The latest polls still repre- 
sent a swing to Labour since 
the last election, when the 
Conservatives polled 42.4 per 
cent. Labour 27.6 per cent, the 
Alliance 25.4 per cent and 
others 4.6 per cent However 
Mr Neil Kinnock’s party has 
nothing like the position it 


would need now to have a 
realistic hope of winning an 
overall majority. 

To be assured of an overall 
majority. Labour needs a vote 
of more than 40 per cent, 
although that could drop to 37 
or 38 per cent if the Alliance 
vote is at 29 percent or more. 
However, if the Conservatives 
take more than 40 per cent of 
the vote. Labour will need 
more than 44 per cent to win. 

Conservative strategists 
were delighted by the figures. 
They bad been looking to 
move back into the lead early 
next year to be on target for a 
third election victory. 

Conservative MPs were sav- 
ing last night that the earlier 
belief in some quarters that 
there had been an irreversible 
shift against the Government, 
on the basis of its spending 
record on public services and 
growing public distaste for the 
Prime Minister's style, bad 
been confounded. 

The poll showed wide re- 
gional variations in party 
support The Conservatives 
scored 49 per cent in the 
South-east and 48 per cent in 
East Anglia and the South- 
west, but only 28 per ces! in 
the North and 31 per ctntYn. 
Yorkshire and Humberside. 

Labour had 54 per cent of 
support in the North. 50 per 
cent in Yorkshire and Hum- 
berside and 45 per cent in the 
North-west but sank to 23 per 
cent in the South-east and 27 
per cent in the South-west 
The test figures for the Alli- 
ance were 27 per cent in the 
South-east 24 per cent in the 
South-west and 21 per cent in 
East Anglia.

Lawson to reveal 
higher spending 

By Rodney Lord and Philip Webster 


In his autumn statement 
today the Chancellor, Mr 
Nigel lawson, is expected to 
announce' that public Spend- 
ing programmes next year will 
be higher than originally 
planned. Final decisions on 
bow to accommodate this 
overran will be made at this 
morning’s Cabinet meeting. 

The Cabinet faces a 
combination of options 
including cutting the reserve, 
raising the overall total, 
increasing the level of 
privatization proceeds and 
changing some of the assump- 
tions underlying individual 
spending programmes. 

There will be no forecast in 
the statement about the scope 
for tax cuts in the Budget But 
Mr Lawson is expected to 
dampen expectations. 

At the Conservative Party 
conference last month the 


Chancellor promised that the 
Government would not go on 
a spending spree. 

Any significant overshoot 
on the public spending plan- 
ning total win be bound to 
heighten speculation that the 


Union anger

Government is clearing the 
decks for an early general 
election. 

One member of the “Star 
Chamber" reviewing depart-

that the pressures caused by

local authority spending, last 
week’s offer to the teachers, 
which will cost a further £500 
million, and the £1 billion 
overrun on the social security 
budget had made it the tough-

A system of monitoring the 
ethnic origins of applicants 
and recruits to the Aimed 
Forces is to be introduced next 
year, Mr Roger Freeman, 
Under Secretary of State for 
the Armed Forces, announced 
yesterday. 

The idea is to establish the 
rate of recruitment to the 
Army, Navy and Air Force 
from the ethnic minority 
communities and, where nec- 
essary, to instigate action to 
improve the figures. 


However! there will still be 
no ethnic monitoring of those 
already in the services or of 
new recruits once they have 
joined. Mr Freeman insisted 
last night that the Govern- 
ment thought it would be 
unnecessary and divisive to 
do so. 

He said that racial prejudice 
was not tolerated within the 
services and that promotion 
was based on merit and ability 
and not influenced by the 
colour of a soldier, sailor or 
airman. 

The Ministry of Defence is 
also re-issuing a Defence 


Council instruction to all offi- 
cers, reminding them that 
racial dscriminatkm would 
not be condoned. All staff ax 
recruiting offices are to be 
simflariy informed. 

Mr Freeman said the reason 
for the introduction of the 
monitoring scheme was to 
enable the forces to ensure 
their ability to recruit enough 
men and women. 

At present recruiting figures 
are healthy. Ire said, but in five 
years tune the number of 15 to 
1 7-year-olds would be down 
by 25 per cent and unless toe 
forces were attracting mem-

scheme would differ from that

tion and recruitment .

Yesterday Mr Fireman said 
that it was impossible to say 
what percents®: of the ser- 
vices was made up from toe 
ethnic community. The fig- 
ures, he said, were simply not 
kept. . 

He said that if toe figures. 


Earlier in the year there was

‘Imposed’ 
deal fear 
by heads 


By Mark Dowd 
Education Reporter 

The National Association of 
Head Teachers will give a 
warning today to the Secretary 
of State for Education of toe 
massive staffroom discontent 
which could follow a decision 
to impose a pay and con- 
ditions package on the pro- 
fession. 

Mr David Hart, toe union’s 
general secretary, who is meet- 
ing Mr Kenneth Baker, will 
warn him also of toe dangers 
of riding roughshod over 
democratically-elected local 
authorities. 

At the meeting he will seek 
clarification on two points in 
the Baker package relating to 
the obligation to ensure order 
and discipline during midday 
supervision and additional 
budgetary responsibilities. 

Half-day walk-outs by more 
than 15.000 members of the 
National Association of 
Sdioolmasters/Union of Wo- 
men Teachers yesterday af- 
fected nearly 250,000 pupils. 
The main areas involved were 
Merseyside, central and North 
Wales, Essex and most parts 
of Sussex. 

• Miss Maureen McGoIdrick, 
the Brent bead teacher ac- 
cused of racism, returned in 
triumph to her school in 
north-west London yesterday, 
nearly four months after being 
suspended by toe Labour- 
controlled council (David 
Cross writes). 

Hugged by teachers, parents 
and children massed in the 
und of Sudbury In- 
is School to welcome her. 
Miss McGoIdrick said that she 
was “absolutely delighted” to 
be back. 

• Mr Jonathan Savery, the 
teacher who was acquitted of 
racism by a disciplinary panel 
in Bristol, is to return to his 
school for two weeks, before 
being moved to another post, 
Avon County Council decided 
yesterday.

Mrs Wendy Savage, toe 
reinstated consultant obste- 
trician, will be working for a 
new professor when she treats

This is an attempt to avoid 
further conflict with her 
present head of department. 
Professor Gedis Grudzinskas. 

The London Hospital's 
medical school has arranged 
for ha to be transferred from 
the department of obstetrics 
and gynaecology to the depart-

yesterday unvoted its

The effect of the findings is 
to leave government and

billion tunnel project prac- 
tically unscathed; in spue of 
33 days of olgeaians from 
nearly 5,000 petitioners from 
London, Kent, the feny com- 
panies and port authorities. 

The only potential blow to 
Eurotunnel is the committee's 
intention to write into the Bill 
clauses specifically excluding 
public subsidies. This could 
yet prove a stumbling Mode, 
given toe difficulties experi- 
enced last week in raising an 
initial £206 million. 

Mr Nick Rayasford, Labour 
MP for Fulham, expressed his 
“fundamental, disagreemou*' 
with several of the commi-

larly its refusal to make any 
rating on tunnel safety.

A High Coot judge yes- 
terday caSed for jurors to lave

sentencing by judges was 
“profoundly unscientific” and 
“owes more to chance than it

Lord McQuskey. aged 57, 
toe first judge to be chosen as 
the. Reito lecturer, said: “We 
ignore at our peril public 
conera abort disparity in 
sentencing between different 
courts and different judges.” 
The public are row that' 
sentencing is for forjudges, be 
added. Thai would be accept- 
able if judges uniquely knew 
wbat mystic principles guided 
their actions. “But they 
don’t.” 

The judge, who was Solic- 
itor General in the last Labour 
government, questioned the 
way that judges* decisions are 
labelled “sentencing policy”. 
“The only real policy is to let 
tire judges get on with it,” be 
said. 

But it was the public, he 
said, who had to pay for 
prisons, who were the victims 
of crime, who had to live in 
the commiTiunity with . off- - 
Codas’ familie s and maintain 
them. 

In cases which have gone to 
trial. Laid McChiskey said, 
was there “not an argument 
for seeking assistance from the 
voy jury that has beard toe 
whole evidence, and deter- 
mined toe fact of guilt?* 

If toe judge had power to 
put before the jury the upper 
and Iowa limits of the range 
of sentences that he must 
consider, that would enable a 
lay participation in sentencing' 
which would help produce 
just 
ibtic 

tance of the result”. 

He pot forward the proposal 
that the public prosecutor 
might suggest a range of 
options with reasons and per- 
haps supporting evidence, 
“creating the beginnings of a 
true sentencing policy” which 
could be scrutinized and dis- 
cussed in PorfiamenL 
The lecture was the first of 
six on toe theme of “Law, 
Justice and Democracy” in 
which he makes foil use of the 
rare chance for a practising 
judge to speak out in public. 

Lord McCIuskey, the first 
Scotsman to give the lectures 
as wdl as toe first juc 
speculates that one reason 
was chosen was that “being a 
Scot, .and having been a 
politician in the Lords, I have 
a perspective that is different 
from most judges”.

Scorn for 
Ridley 
pay curb 


By Howard Foster 


The suggestion by Mr 
Nicholas Ridley; Secretary of 
State for the Environment, 
that county councils facing 
cuts in rate support grant 
could save money by refusing 
new pay award to their 
manual workers was under 
heavy fire last night. 

Shire councillors, MPs and 
toe national wage negotiating 
body for local authorities all 
pronounced his plan impos- 
sible to implement for reasons 
ranging from political objec- 
tions to the fact that to renege 
on an agreed 6.7 pa cent rise 
would involve councils break- 
ing the contracts of 90 pa- 
cent of their manual staff 
Mr Ridley is faring a revolt

by 


MPS whose, constituents face 
sizeable rate increases because 
the Government has reduced 
some county council grants. 

He has aigued that councils 
could cut the numbers of 
manual workers or refuse to 
go along with toe national 
agreement and pay wbat they 
could afford. 

Southern shire counties are 
the hardest hit by the pro- 
visional figures for next year’s 
rate support grant Although 
the overall figure is increased 
by £1 billion, new bases for 
distribution mean that same 
counties will receive up to £20 
million less than this year. 


Rebuff for 
Irish on 
Diplock 


By Richard Ford 

The Government has for- 
mally rejected demands from 
the Irish Republic for an 
increase in the number of 
judges sitting in Northern 
Ireland’s Diplock courts. 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher re- 
jected the proposal for three 
ratter than one judge to sit in 
the non-jury courts and con- 
veyed her decision in a letter 
recently sent to Dr Garret 
FitzGerald, the . Republic's 
Prime Minister. 

Reform of the Diplock 
courts . has been a key 
preoccupation of the Irish 
government since the signing 
of the Anglo-Irish agreement 
as they believed it was one 
way of improving confidence 
in the administration of jus- 
tice in toe north. 

The British decision is-, 
likely to delay the introduc- 
tion of legislation in the Dail 
formally ratifying the Irish 
government’s signing of the 
European Convention on the 
suppression of terrorism. 

Tight security surrounded 
the Duke of Kent yesterday as 
he toured high technology 
factories _ and manufacturing 
industry in Northern Ireland. 

The two-day tour by the 
Duke is his fourth visit to the 
province. He bagan it. by 
opening a high technology 
park in Antrim, which could 
eventually provide 1,500 jobs.

Ai the Central Criminal 
Court in London, Steed, a yd 
23, pleaded not guilty to 
murder, but guilty to man* 
slaughter on the grounds of 
diminished, responsibility. 
The court was told he was a 
psychopath. 

His plea was accepted by Sir 
James Miskm, theReconier of 
London, who said he would 
sentence Steed on Monday. 

Steed, fair haired with a 
slight - beard, also pleaded 
guilty to raping three women, 
one charge of abducting a 
woman with intent to have 
sexual intercourse with her 
and a 'number of charges of 
stealing cars. No details of any 
of the offences were given in 
court during the 10-minute

jBut Mr Allan Green, for the 
prosecution, said that three 
psychiatrists of great experi- 
ence had all agreed that Steed, 
of Croydon Road, Pence, 
south London, was suffering 
from a psychopathic disorder 
“which substantially impaired 
his mental responsibility for 
the killing”. They had also 
agreed there should be no 
question of a hospital order, it 
had to be imprisonment 

Mr Green said the doctors’ 
evidence should be accepted. 
“Where medical evidence is 
aO one way and the quality of 
that evidence cannot be im- 
pugned and there is nothing in 
the case which can justify a 
contrary view, as in the 
Sutdiffe case, the evidence 
should be accepted” 

After the case, police and 
people who knew Steed de- 
scribed how he grew from a 
young boy who would not 
accept a cuddle from his 
mother into a body-building 
fanatic who lived in a fantasy 
world.

Mrs Gareth Pierce, jl solic-

Mr Lemard, asked him how 
he came to the opinion of Mr 
Lemanfs colossal strength. 

The officer said: *Tve never

Fowler to 
spend £6m 
on mental 
health 


By J3) Sherman 

The Government's plan to 
spend £6 million during the 
next three years on improving 
the care of the mentally ill in 
the community was yesterday 
dismissed as “derisory”. 

Mr Norman Fowler, toe 
Secretary of State for Social 
Services, said yesterday that 
eight schemes had already 
been approved in health 
authority regions throughout 
the country and a further six 
would be approved in toe next 
fortnight. 

Regions will receive a maxi- 
mum of £400,000 each to 
spend on schemes designed to 
provide support in the com- 
munity for those suffering 
from serious mental Alness. 

But health and social ser- 
organizatiofls 


vice 


said not enough money was 
sred. They also criti- 


being offered, 
rized the Government for 
supporting individual 
projects, instead of tedding 
the problem nationwide. 

M Tbe funding of small ini- 
tiatives for short periods of 
time does not address the 
fundamental problem of 
community care, which is to 
plan a full range of services for 
all those in need in the 
community,” Mr Tony de 
Sautoy, under secretary of 
social services of the Associ- 
ation of Community Coun- 
cils, said. 

The mental health associ- 
ation, Mind, which last week 
called for a further £1 billion 
for services for the mentally 
ill, raid that there was a 
desperate need for a central 
bridging fund to make the 
transition from hospitals to 
community care possible. 

“Unless this is provided it 
wifi never be possible for 
people leaving hospital to lead 
independent lives in the 
community,” Miss Chris 
Smith, Mind's assistant direc- 
tor, said.

New law

report on 
firm’s future 


allayed 


by Pattie 


The Government bad instructed 
Mr Graham Day, chairman of 
the Rover Group, to do his 
utmost to improve the commer- 
cial p e rform ance of the group 
and ***** asked him to produce a 
report on its whole commercial 
futur e. Mr Paul Channoa, Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, said during Commons 
questions. 

It was still the Government’s 
intention to return the Rover 
Group to the private sector, 
either as a whole or in seperate 
pans, but that would no doubt 
ta k e some considerable time, he 

Mr James Hamilton (Mother- 
well North. Lab) bad opened the 


frrfe m g re by asking what was 
the state of the Gove rnmen t's 
proposals for the privatization 
of British Leyiand. 

Mr Channon replied: The pos- 
ition on Leyiand Bus and 
Unipart was announced to the 
House on July 24. Since then. 
Rover Group have announced 
agreement in principle to dis- 
pose of a majority interest in 
Jaguar Rover Australia. They 
are also taking forward the 
disposal of a majority interest in 


Mr Hamilton: In order to give 
some security and peace of mind 
to BL, its workers, dealers and 
customers, can he give an 
assurance that there will be no 
negotiations entered iww before 
the general election regarding 
the sale of BL or Land-Rover? 
Mr Channim: There arc no 
plans to do so. I explained the 
position on Land-Rover some 
months ago and there is no 
phanp! in that situation. I have 
explained what is going on in a 
number of subsidiaries of the 
Rover group. 

Our policy remains to seek to 
return the businesses, together 
or separately, to private ow- 
nership. 

I am awaiting a report from 
Mr Day on the whole financial 
structure of the company and I 
have nothing to teU the House 
now. 

Mr David Made! (South West 
Bedfordshire, Q wanted re- 
assurance that the Government 
would nett allow a privatized BL 
to encourage any unfair com- 
petition with existing car and 
truck manufacturers in Britain. 
Mr Channon said that he could 


Day's report. Z agree with him 
about the quality of their cars 
and I only wish more people 
inside ana outside House 
would buy them. 

Mr David Neffist (Coventry 
South East, Lab) asked how they 
could take Mr Channon seri- 
ously when the privatization of 
SelfChangmg Gears in Cov- 
entry taken place in June 
without any announcement, on- 1 
til the information had been 
sqeezed out of ministers in a 
written answer, and there had 
been job kisses of 20 per cent 
within 12 weeks of pri- 
vatization. 

Mr Channon: In order to stay in 
business you have to win suf- 
ficient orders. It is unfortunate 
that in the case of Self-Changing 
Gears it was their failure to win 
sufficient orders that resulted in 
job losses. 

Mr Eric Forth (Mid Worcester- 
shire. Q wanted reassurance 
that sufficient weight would be 
given, when considering the 
ma nagem ent buyout proposals 
at ISTEL, to the strength of the 
skills of the existing staff and 
that that would be fully 
weighted against any financial 
considerations. 

Mr Channon: I am awaiting the 
assessment from the Rover 


Questioned about _ representa- 
tions modg to him by the 
automotive industry on his 
proposals fra: the reform of the 
copyright laws, Mr Geoffrey 
Pattie, Minister for Information 
Technology, said the industry 
would be reassured when the 
Government was able to come 
forward with suitable com- 
promise proposals at present 
under discussion. 

Mr Robert Atkins (South 
RibMe, Q said there was consid- 
erable concern and ange r in th e 
automata ve support industry, 
represented by large and small 
companies in his constituency, 
about the unregistered design 
right proposed m the Intellec- 
tual Pr op e r ty White taper. 

The industry believed that it 
would affect competition and 
the quality of the products it 
could provide and that would 
have a deleterious effect upon 
bu sin e s ses the length and 
breadth of the country. 

Mr Pattie said that those points 

were being considered.

(Norman ton. Lab) said that a 
firm manufacturing hydraulics 
m his constituency was running 
scared from management to 
shopfioor workers over its fu- 
ture. Would the minister with- 
draw his proposals for the 
reform of the copyright laws, 
remove the tear hanging over 
the industry and allow it to 
prosper? 

Mr Pattie said the compromise 
proposals would meet most of 
Mr O’Brien's objectives. 

Mr Robin MaxweD-Hydop 
(Tiverton, Cy. The only im- 
portant thing for the retail 
customer is to know what he is 
buying. He should have the 
freedom to buy what he wants. 

The minister must guard 
against manufacturers who will 
not supply spare parts but only 
replacement units at hideous 
cost. That is taking the con- 
sumer for a ride. 

Mr Pattie: I am aware of the 
consumer arguments. We have 
also to recognize that there is a 


Gro up of their majority interest 
in ISTEL and of course I will 


give that reassurance. 

Mr Terence Davis (Bir- 
mingham, Hodge Hill, Lab) 
asked how privatization would 


help to sobre BL's real problem, 
which was one of sales. 


The company should con- 
centrate on selling its vehicles 
instead of constantly calling for 
redundancies among its workers 
who had made significant 
improvements in quality and 
productivity but were rewarded 
with the sack. 

Mr Channon: He is being unfair 
and unreasonable. Of course I 
have asked Mir Day to do his 
utmost to improve the commer- 
cial performance of the Rover 
Group and that is in ev- 
erybody’s interest. 

They are making considerable 
strides in improving produc- 
tion, output and quality and 
they are doing extremely welL I 
have asked Mr Day to look at 
the whole commercial future of 
the group and I am looking 
forward to receiving his pro- 


Mr Anthony Beamnont-Dark 
(Birmingham, SeQy Oak, C): 
Will the money realized from 
this privatization be available to 
the Rover Group for reinvest- 
ment, bearing in mind the 
excellent new car they have got, 
the Sterling? 

Mr Channon: On the question 
of investment in the Rover 
Group, 1 shah have to await Mr 


consider what he says. 

Mr Douglas Hoyte (Warrington 
North, Lab) asked Mr Channon 
to confirm that the instructions 
given to Mr Day were to talk to 
everyone with a view to pri- 
vatizing Austin Rover. 

Mr Chanson: The instructions 
are to nm the c o mpany 
commercially and 10 get it into a 
good commercial state in the 
interests of all concerned. We 
were elected on a manifesto to 
privatize the group and our 
policy remains to return the 
companies to private owner- 
ship. That will no doubt take 
quite a considerable time. 

Mr Nicholas Bodgen (Wolver- 
hampton South West. Q asked 
Mr Channon to make plain to 
private investors that he was 
genuinely open to all sugges- 
tions for sale, investment or 
collaboration in respect of BL. 
Mr Channon: He will realize 
from the list I have read out of 
parts of the Rover Group that 
are being disposed of that there 
is an energetic programme going 
on on that front 
Mr John Smith, chief Opposi- 
tion on trade and 

industry: As the Government 
caused deep concern to every- 
one in the Rover Group when 
its surreptitious proposals to sell 
it off to the Ford Motor Com- 
pany were revealed earlier this 
year, does the Government not 
owe to the people who work in 
the Rover Group a solid 
commitment to see it through to 
commercial success? 

It is more important to main- 
tain and extend its production 
than to seek to privatize it- Will 
he give an undertaking that if 
proposals come from Mr Day to 
reduce substantially the volume 
of production at Rover Group 
he win reject those proposals? 
Mr Chamwa: I am going to wait 
until I see what be says before I 
commit myself to rejecting or 
accepting anything' he brings 
forward. I do not accept what 
Mr Smith says about sur- 
reptitious efforts 10 sell it offer 
about the effect that had. 

What Rover and other car 
companies depend on is com- 
mercial success, quality, price, 
reliability and delivery. Rover 
has an excellent story to tell on 
those points and I very much 
hope it wifi come to commercial 
success and that is the 
Government’s policy. 


‘misleading’ figures 


judges to 
be studied 


In the year ended in September, 
there was a surplus of £403 mil- 
lion on the balance of trade 
current account, Mr Ahm Clark, 
Minister for Trade, said during 
Commons questions. 

The country was broadly in 
balance for the whole of this 
year, although one month in the 
third quarter had been particu- 
larly disappointing, he said.

productivity. Unit labour costs 
were making the country less 
competitive in the world I 
markets. 

Mr Clark: It is on that compet- 
itiveness that our success wifi 
depend. 


Mr Clark said that consumer 

spending was going up very fest. 

That increase was 'socking in 
imports and giving rise to the 

“Until British goods are

He was replying to Mr James 
Wallace (Orkney and Shetland, 
L) who asked if he would accept 
that in the third quarter of the 
year there had been a deficit of 
£1.2 billion. 

Mr Wallace asked what propor- 
tion of (the reduction of) the 
deficit did he see coming from 
increased exports of manufac- 
tured goods and what propor- 
tion from increased exports of 
services. 

‘There is a fear that the 
Government is being com- 
placent as the manufacturing 
base in this country is being 
eroded." 

Mr Clark: His figures are 
misleading. Our manufacturing 
productivity has gone up by 
32 per cent since 1980. Export

Industry was providing substan-

Minister for Industry, said dur- 
ing Commons questions. 

That was taking place through 
support for innovation schemes 
ana through assistance on ex- 
ports, he said. 


why, if there was a surplus on 
the balance of trade, the pound 
appeared to be slipping all the 
time against almost every other 
currency in Europe: 

Mr Clark: The steriing-doQar

effectively for the last six 
months. 

Sir Paal Bryan (Boothferry, Q 
asked if he would speculate on 
the effects on the balance of 
trade if the Labour Party's 
proposal on the control of 
foreign investment were to be 
implemented. 

Mr Clark said that the home-

which provided a budget fore- 
cast of a £3 billion surplus on 
current account by the end of 
this year? Can he give another 
budget forecast of even this 
Government which has gone so 
wrong? 

Mr Clark: That forecast is a 
responsibility of the Chancellor 
of the Exchequer. 

Mr Ian WriggfesmKth (Stock- 
ton Sooth, SDP): His com- 
placency is - staggering. The 
forecast, not least mom his own 
Treasury, for the balance of ; 
payments deficit in the forth- 
coating year is somewhere be-

Mr Clark . said the lack of

drawback, but productivity in

said in the Commons. 

He was speaking at that start 
of consideration of Lords 
amendments to the Public Order 
Bill in response to an Opposition 
attemp t to remove from the Bill 
a government new danse de- 
signed to achieve that stren- 
gthening. 

Mr Hogg said that tire amend- 
ment did not cminaliae simple 
trespass bat it created police 
powers to direct trespassers to 
leave land in strictly limited 
circumstances. 

The senior police officer had 
reasonably to befieve that two or

more people satisfied three cri- 
teria: that they were trespassers; 


that they had the common 


purpose of residing on the land 
for any period; that all reason- 
able steps bad been taken to ask 
them to leave. 

“This new ebrase will provide 
the police with powers to deal 
with aggravated trespass by 
groops sack as the convoy 
without haring an adverse effect 
on ramblers and other users of 
the country-ode." 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, Op- 
position spokesman on hone 
affairs, said such manifestations 
as the hippy convoy were deeply 
unpopular. It was important that 
the weight of criminal law was 
not used to bear unfairly on 
people with uucon veational life- 
styles and for no other reason. 

The Home Secretary had said 
that the Association of Chief 
Police Officers would not wel- 
come an extension of powers to 
private land. Mr GBes Shaw, 
then Minister for State, had said 
there was no need to rush into 
Anther legiriatioB ami that a big 


change of the. law on trespass 
was at something the Govern- 
ment wanted. 

Every one tf those words had 
been gone back on by the 
Government * 

The new danse was un- 
necessary, unfair and ffl thought 
oat It conM be oppressive and

Sir John Farr (Harboroagh, C)

Mr Humphrey Matins (Creydeo 
North West, C) said farmers 
had suffered frustration becanse

Mr Sednemore: Last December 
'I criticized m a debate tire 
Senior Master in tire Royal

Bickford Smith, and sofidtars

I wrote to tire Lord ChanceBor 
and asked him 10 set up an 
inquiry. There was considerable 
conesDondence. 

Since then I hare heard 
nothing. Yesterday the Lord

quiry by way of an sw erin g a

Is it not a gross abuse of both

an MP in this fashion? 

My second point is even mote 
important. The- Attorney .

I have always been under the 
impression that if one MP 
wished to criticize another he 
bad to put down a sn b tta uti ve

My third point is this: In that 
answer the Attorney General 
has impugned my integrity for 
attacking a judge and he said 
that if one a t ta c ks a judge, bn

BBC publishes point-by-point response to Tebbit complaints 


This is a condensed, 
version of the BBCs reply 
to Mr Tebbit’s attack. 

The BBC sets out the head- 
lines for the main evening 
news bulletin complained of - 
Tuesday, April 15, 1986 - 
dealing with the American 
attack on Libya. 

BBC Headlines: 

a) World- wide condemnation 
of the American air strike on 
Libya. 

b) Children are casualties — 
three from Gadaffi's family. 

c) Mrs Thatcher under fire in 
the Commons defends her 
decision to allow the use of 
British bases. 

d) Tonight she shows her 
critics the proof of Libyan 
terrorism. 

ITN Headlines: 

a) Mr Gorbachov tells Mr 
Reagan “Our Foreign Min- 
isters can't meet now". 

b) The bombs meant for 
terrorists kill Colonel 
Gadaffi's daughter. 

c) President Reagan says: “If 
necessary we mil do it again". 

d) Mrs Thatcher: “I agreed last 
fvcck’**. 

e) Mr Kinnock: “It will 
provoke”. 

0 The police are busy with 
demonstrators in Downing 
Street tonight. 

C CO complaint 

“The contrast is dear. The 
BBC gave particular emphasis 
to the Libyan case". 

BBC response 


to the British and American 
case (c). The BBC carried four 
headlines, two of which were 
concerned with the “un- 
favourable” side (a,b). One 
was divided between 
“unfavourable’' and “neutral” 
(c), and one was the strongest 
line in favour of Mrs 
Thatcher’s position to appear 
in any of the headlines," nTfs

in the Commons' 


Response 


Complaint 


“The BBC made the prin- 


cipal feature of its news the 
‘world-wide condemnation ' of 


‘world-wide condemnation ’ of 
America — a subjective and 
emotive description which is 
repeated but never substan- 
tiated throughout the 
broadcast 


Seriously misleading. The 
order and language of me two 
sets of headlines are in fact 
much, the same. CCO chooses 
not to draw attention to the 
fact that ITN. as well as the 
BBC chose the civ ilian 
casualties as the subject for its 
second headline, ana that the 
language of the one is no more 
emphatic than that of the 
other. 


Complaint 


Response 


Not true. ITN carried six 
h eadli ne s. Four of these were 
concerned with what Conser- 
vative Central Office call the 
“unfavourable” aspect of the 
bombing (a,b,e,f). One was 
“neutrar (d), and one, quot- 
ing Reagan, was “favourable” 


Not true. The phrase 
“world-wide condemnation” 
was thoroughly substantiated 
during the broadcast Our 
diplomatic editor, John Simp- 
son, reported that only Can- 
ada, Israel and Britain had 
supported the American ac- 
tion, and he continued: “AE 
the others, loyal allies as well 
as fair- weather ones, are uni- 
formly hostile to it” 


Complaint 

"77j<? BBC then turned to the 
civilian casualties of the raid — 
thus giving emphasis to one of 
Libya'. s major propaganda 
points - before describing Mrs 


"In our view ITN chose a 
very different approach, which 
emphasized head fact " 

Response 

There appear to be five 
criticisms in this pa ssage , not' 
all of them dearly expressed: . 

a) that ITN chose a very 
different approach of then- 
headlines, which emphasized 
hard fact, while the BBCs 
headlines did not. 

Not trae. Not one of the 
BBCs headlines was conjec- 
tural; each was fully substan- 
tiated in the reporting that 
followed. 

b) that the BBCs phrases 
(“world-wide condemnation” 
etc) were vague. 

Not trae. We have already 
demonstrated in some detail 


about how extensive the 
condemnation was. 

c) that the BBC chose not to 
accompany its references to 
civilian casualties with par- 
allel references to the proof of 
Libyan terrorism. 

Not tone. The BBC head- 
lines referred to proof of 
Libyan terrorism within seven 
seconds of its mention of 

rerenaTtiet 

d) that because the BBC 
referred to Mrs Thatcher as 
being “under fire”, rather than 
leaving her and other poli- 
ticians to speak for them- 
selves, we were less “factual” 
than ITN. 

Not true. CCO neglects to 
point out that ITN itself used 
-precisely foe same expression 
later in its report: “In the 
House of Commons this after- 
noon Mrs Thatcher came 
under fire from all sides for 
her support of President 
Reagan's action”. 

e) that the BBC was far less 
‘successful’ than ITN in in- 
troducing the news in a bal- 
anced and impartial fashion, 
and was not scrupulous about 
not attempting to lead the 
viewer either to a pro-Ameri- 
can or a pro-Libyan opinion. 

We disagree. Our rebuttal 
of each of the above points 
shows why we believe our 
headlines were balanced. 


Complaint 

“7b the section following the 
headlines the BBC went 
straight into alarmist hyper- 
bole: ‘ The world is wailing to 
see what Colonel Gadaffi is 
going to do in response...'. It 
was a phrase which raised the

wide condemnation and which

British Government had put

Response 

Nowhere were the words 
“unjustifiable” or “agg- 
ression” used by us, except m

that the raids caurcd the 
deaths of many civilians, at-

condemnation, increased

placed at ride. But at no stage 
did we “sandwich,**, to use an 
earlier CCO expression, these 
unquestionable facts together.

Big expenditure 
on new prisons 
‘a costly failure’ 


By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs . 

Correspondent ^ 

Massive investment by the t 
Government in new prisons is i 
a costly failure, the annual 
report of the National Assoa- j 
ation for the Gire a*** < 
Resettlement of Offenders j 
ays today. , _ __ s 
The forecast made by Mr i 

Leon Brittan in 1983, when he ■ 

was Home Secrctaiy, that the 
raison building programme 
would end overcrowding by 
1991 will not be met. Nacro 
says. 

The report says that no 
I refaction in prison over- 
crowding has been achieved m 
the past five years. In March 
1981, prisons were over- 
crowded by 12 per cent, the 
same percentage as m March 
1985. 

In February of this year, 
17,148 prisoners were still 
sharing a cell with one or two 
others. 

Under present plans, many 
thousands of prisoners would 
still be sharing cells in 1991. 

Miss Vivien. Stem, director 
of Nacro, says in the report: 
“The massive investment m 
new raisons is draining re- 
sources away from the existing 
system and reducing stan- 
dards still further. 

“The money availabl e for 
education was reduced from 
2.3 per cent of the prison 
budget in 1979-80 to 1.85 per 
cent in 1984-85.”

Suez 30 years on 

Soldier recalls the big 
‘fireworks’ display he 
was part of in 1956 






By Peter Davenport, Defence Correspondent 

History has passed its own bring today’s wars into the ' 
judgement on the political and family living room, but these 

photographs still capture the

miUtary wisdom of the inva- 
sion of Suez, but for the men 
involved in the fighting each 
anniversary of the event 
brings back more personal 
memories. 

Thirty years ago yesterday 
about 700 men of the 3rd 
Battalion, The Parachute 
Regiment were dropped on to 
the El Garni! airfield west of 
port Said — 24 hours before 
the main seaborne invasion 
force was scheduled to land. ■ 
Among them was Private 
Terence Horton, who is now 
aged 49 and a building works 
manager in east London. He 
said; “For everybody else the 
fifth of November is Guy 
Fawkes nighL but for all of us 
who were in Suez we remem- 
ber the day for fireworks of a 
rather different kind.” 

For many Suez was then- 
first taste of action. As they 
stepped out of their transport 

I*w4nn urifk kAOW 



atmosphere of the battlefield 
in an evocative way. 

Mr Horton has vivid mem- 
ories of the fighting to achieve 
the paras’ objectives - to se- 
cure the airfield; prepare for 
the demolition of a bridge on 
the road to Alexandria and to 
advance on Port Said. 

He says now that he and 
man y of his fellow soldiers 
considered that the decision to 
send them in 24 hours ahead 
of the main invasion force was 
of no mili tary value and 
unnecessarily hazardous. 

“Rumour had it that pres- 
sure was being brought to bear 
on the Government to halt 
hostilities and that we were 
hurriedly sent in in order to 
present the critics with a fait 
accompli. 

“We were lightly armed and 
nisi lasic ui atuuH. u.ey if the Egyptians had reacted 
stepped out of their transport aggressively with heavy equip- 
planes, laden with heavy ment we could have been in 
weapons containers, their only severe trouble. As it waswe 
thoughts were of the reception 
they were about to receive 
from the Egyptian forces 
below. 

The controversy about the 
political decision to invade 
would come later, but as first 
light broke on the morning of 
November 5’ the atmosphere 
on board the aircraft 
approaching Port Said was of 
anticipation and some ex- 
citement. 

Private Horton was among 
the first to jump. As well as his 
weapons and equipment he 
also carried a 35mm camera 
he had bought while stationed 
in Cyprus — the photographs 

on this page are a selection of 

. a mena oi jvit nuuvu 

Now Revision cameras pulled the pin ofhisereoade in 


expectation of an attack, only 
to find he could not replace xt 
when the alert passed. His 
han d developed cramp so, 
rather than throw the grenade 
and risk attracting a mortar 
attack, be sat through the 
night clutching it between his 
thighs. 

In another incident as paras 
moved through a sewage farm 
they came under attack from 
an aircraft The sewage con- 
tainers offered the only pos- 
sible protection - so they 
jumped in, only to discover 
that the plane strafing them 
was one of their own. 

The next morning the paras 
advanced, Mr Horton said, 
with one platoon occupying a 
hospital only to lose their 
platoon commander, sergeant 
and two men to accurate ore 
from buildings near by. 

Later in the day the mam 
seaborne forces arrived. That 
it a ceasefire came into 
Feci. 

Mr Horton added: “1 had

man y of the incidents. 

Dug in, waiting for dawn 
and with the night so black it 
was impossible to see the end 
of your own extended arm, 
one group of paras thought an 
enemy squad had been seen 
moving along the beach carry- 
ing canoes. A tracer bullet was 
fired, followed by a hail . 
small arms from the British 
trenches. Next day the 
“enemy” was found to be a 
donkey, its body riddled with 
bullets.

A new report by the ln- 
sti’tuie for Fiscal Studies urges 
European transport ministers 
l0 introduce greater com- 
petition between airlines when 
they hold their meeting on 
aviation policy in Brussels 

next week. . 

It warns to see an end to toe 
practice of price-fixing and 
agreements between airlines 
not to compete on certain 

routes. „ . 

The institute calls tor lull 
application of the competition 
principles of the Treaty of 
Rome to prevent the en- 
trenched European airlines 
abusing their dominant 
position". . . 

The Consumers Association 
has also written to Mr John 
Moore. Secretary of State tor 
Transport, urging, him not to 
agree to a compromise, be- 
cause it would fly in the face of 
his earlier apparent commit- 
ment to full liberalization. 

A number of European 
ministers are against aban- 
doning current policies. 

At the International Air 
Transport Association’s an- 
nual meeting in Montrcux this 
week it was clear that there 
will be strong resistance to any 
move to force them to aban- 
don price-fixing meetings or 
to use the courts to impose 
unrestricted competition.

Grassroots verdict 


Campaign embarrassment 


Winners and losers 


Reagan to 
stand firm 


despite 
Senate loss 


Con turned from page 1 

Democrats fared less well. It 
appeared yesterday before all 
455 results were in that they 
may have picked up as few as 
three seats. On the whole, 
familiar incumbent were re- 
turned on both sides. 

But there were some new- 
comers who succeeded retir- 
ing Congressmen, the most 


famous being. Mr Joseph Ken- 
nedy. aged 33. the son of the 


late Robert Kennedy, who 
won comfortably in the Bos- 
ton seat held for more than 30 
years by the former Speaker 
Thomas “Tip” O’Neill 

His sister. Kathleen Ken- 
nedy Townsend, failed to beat 
her woman Republican oppo- 
nent in Baltimore. Their un- 
cle. Senator Edward Kennedy, 
who was not himself up for 
election this year, is expected 
to take over the chairmanship 
of the Senate judiciary 
committee in the general re- 
alignment of committee 
chairmanships. 

The Republicans did best in 
the governors' race. The his- 
toric capture of Alabama, the 
first time a Republican took 
this deep south state since the 
Civil War, marked a clear 
break with the George Wallace 
era. Further south in Texas 
they also ousted the Demo- 
cratic incumbent Mark White. 

The election of a Repub- 
lican Hispanic- American gov- 
ernor in Florida offset the 
defeat in the Senate race of 
Senator Paula Hawkins. And 
Republican governors were 
installed in traditionally 
conservative states previously 
held by Democrats — Arizona, 
New Mexico. Oklahoma and 
Kansas. 

The Republicans also main- 
tained them hold on America’s 
largest state, with the re- 
election of Governor George 
Deukmejian in California. 


The propositions 


Voters decide on the vital issues 



From Mohsin AH, Washington 


Voters from Maine to Cali- 
fornia yesterday delivered 
their verdicts on a range of 
subjects including Aids, drugs, 
nudear power, g amblin g, 
taxes and women’s rights. 

Many of their answers 
when added to ballots in some 
43 states have national im- 
plications and are an increas- 
ingly important aspect of US 
elections 

California approved a refer- 
endum that would make Eng- 
lish the official l a n gu ag e, a 
measure strongly opposed by 
Hispanic, Asian, and civil 
rights groups 

In Oregon there was over- 
whelming grassroots rejection 
of a proposition that would 
have allowed adults to grow 
marijuana for their own use: 

These were two of the most 
controversial of some 226 
referenda that American vot- 
ers decided on Tuesday. “Di- 
rect democracy” propositions 
allowed voters to ignore the 
usual legislative process and 
propose new laws 

The Oregon proposition 
was put by a group calling 
itself the “Oregon Marijuana 
Initiative”. It would have 
permitted anyone aged 18 or 
older to grow and possess the 
drug for personal use. But 


California Chief Justice Rose 
Bird was ousted overwhelm- 

Voters in and around the 
predominantly black Roxbury 
area of Boston rejected by 
about three-to-one a non- 
binding referendum on form- 
ing a separate city called 
Mandela. 

Massachusetts voters re- 
jected a proposal to use state 
funds to aid private schools by 
about a two-toon e ratio. New 
York voters approved a $1.45 
billion bond issue for environ- 
mental projects. 

Rhode Island voters, over- 
whelmingly Roman Catholic, 
rejected the proposed ban on 
state-funded abortions, except 
when the life of the mother 
was threatened, by more than 
three-totwo. 

In Vermont, a proposal to 
add the Equal Rights Amend-

ment (ERA) to the state's 
Station headed for defeat. 


voters strongly rejected the 
proposition after a « 


r __ r warning by 

the 'State Attorney-General’s 
office that such a law would be 
-unenforceable and by drug- 
abuse officials that it sent the 
wrong signal to the youth. 

Californians rejected by a 
two-to-one margin the pro- 
posal from backers of Mr 
Lyndon Larouche, the right- 
wing and fringe presidential 
candidate, that would isolate 
Aids victims. It was bitterly 
opposed by leaders of the 
homosexual community and a 
number of Hollywood celeb- 
rities, including Elizabeth 
Taylor. 

Californians approved mea- 
sures against toxic waste dis- 
posal put a cap on state 
salaries and as expected. 


constitution 1 
This had been seen as the 
spearhead of a possible na- 
tionwide attempt to revive the 
national movement to make 
ERA part of the United States 
constitution. That now seems 
to have suffered a mortal 
blow. 

In Oregon, a proposal call- 
ing for the creation of a state-, 
wide nudear free zone, 
including the closing of the 
stale’s only operating nuclear 
plant until a high level waste 
site was in operation, was 
defeated. 

Voters in Kansas approved 
an amendment which would 
allow bars and restaurants to 
serve alcohol This was ban- 
ned in 1880 but stores were 
allowed to sefi drink in 1948. 
Until now, however, open 
saloons in Kansas were for- 
bidden. 

Other measures approved 
included a new state lottery in 
Florida, the cleaning up of 
toxic waste sites in New York 
and Massachusetts, and a 
mandatory seat belt law in 
Nebraska

Computer bombards the sick 


From Paid Vallely, Fort Worth 


It was not we are assured. 
President Reagan's intention 
that the old and the sick 
should be dragged from their 
hospital beds in a last-attempt 
to swell the Republican vote in 
Texas. But that was not bow 
all of die patients saw it. 

The rigour of the Presid- 
ent's unsuccessful personal 
campaign to maintain his 
party’s working majority in 
the Senate in Tnesday’s elec- 
tion has been much remarked 
upon here.

person, of coarse. Political 
campaigners in die United 
S tates have devised a new 
form of lobbying in which a 
recorded message is played by 
a computer. 

But this time the computer, 
which is based in Foart Worth, 


went haywire. Instead of cas- 
ing private homes in Cleve- 
land, Ohio, it bombarded the 
local general hospital. 

For four hours fast weekend 
the went through to the 
emergency room, the nurses* 
home and the bedside tele- 
phones of the patients. 


Perhaps the Presidents 
only real mistake was hi not 
ordering a fleet of bsthchairs 
to form a shuttle to the po&fog 
booth.

hand 


one. pf the most popular 
presidents this century, but 
Rcaganism has clearly lost its 
r^lure. 

M Voters' rejection of Repub- 
lican candidates in nine slates, 
with a consoling victory for 
ihe party in only Missouri, 
came despite Mr Reagan's 
intensive campaigning in 13 
marginal states and his emo- 
tional plea for a free hand to 
complete his final two years in 
office. 

It is a bitter personal blow 
and one that, willy-nilly, now 
makes him a lame dudL 

The President had tried to 
make the election a referen- 
dum on his record and on 
national issues — the econ- 
omy, arms control, the Iceland 
summit- 

But the candidates con- 
centrated on local issues, and 
the voters were swayed by the 
strength of individual can- 
didates as well as regional 
concerns: the crisis on the 
Jarms, or the loss of jobs to 
Jfcreign imports. Party labels 
played little pan. As many 
predicted, Mr Reagan had 
short coat-tails. 

The political implications 
of the dramatic Democratic 
gains are many. With both 
houses of Congress now con- 
trolled by the opposition, it 
will be harder for the Presi- 
dent to control the political 
agenda. 

He will face suffer opposi- 
tion to his defence build-up, 
and especially to his Strategic 
Defence Initiative on space 
weapons. He will run into 
more sustained criticism of his 
handling of the main foreign 
policy issues, particularly 
Central America. South Africa 
and arms control. 
m And he will be thwarted in 
Mis plan to reduce the deficit 
by cutting spending without 
raising taxes. 

He will find it harder to gel 
Senate confirmation of his 
appointees, especially in the 
judiciary. And he will have to 
use his veto more often. 

Mr Reagan has insisted he 
will not be daunted. “The 
goals themselves will not 
change. Jt could be tougher, 
but it won't alter the agenda,” 
his. spokesman, Mr Larry 
Speaker said yesterday. 

A pragmatist and a skilful 
political operator. Mr Reagan 
wifi seek to get his way with 
bvt-minuie deals 2nd com- 
promises. He will make 
unihibited use of his national 
popularity, with frequent tele- 
Jsion appeals over the heads 
^Congress. 

He will concentrate more on 
the areas where he can build 
consensus - in persuing arms 


protectionism to halt the flood 

of imports. 

But for the Democrats, the 
Senate victory is not an un- 
mixed blessing. Indeed many 
strategists have given a warp- 
ing that it could make a 
Democratic win in the 1988 
presidential election more 
difficult, especially if the party 
is seen as obstructionist 
blocking effective government 
in Washington and refusing to 
rise above partisan politics on 
the main domestic and foreign 
issues. 

Saddled with the respon- 
sibility of shaping the Senate's 
agenda and priorities, the 
Democrats have to avoid 
being blamed by Mr Reagan 
for any and every setback. 

They fully realize the dan- 
gers. **I would hope we would 
not see a fortress White House 
that feels it is under siege,” 
said Senator Robert Byrd of 
West Virginia, who is ex- 
pected to take over as Senate 
majority leader as he was 
before 1980. “We Democrats 



New York has built on his 
impressive reputation with an 
overwhelming victory in his 
home state, and emerges as a 
likely front-runner for the 
Democrats. 

However, former Senator 
Gary Hart has also been 
identified by television polls 
as a still popular figure with 
national exposure. He was 
helped by the fact that his 
handpicked successor, Gov- 
ernor Tint Wirtfa, scraped into 
the Senate for the Democrats 
in Colorado despite tough 
opposition from Mr Ken 
Kramer: 

The Republicans Vice- 
President, Mr George Bush, 
has put himself even further 
ahead. He was spared the 
embarrassment of a 50-50 tie 
in the Senate, which would 
have kept him captive in 
Washington to deliver the tie- 
breaking votes. But Senator 
Robert Dole, the majority 
leader until last Tuesday, has 
seen his chances dim, as his 
power on Capitol Hill is 
diminished. 

And former Senator Paul 
Laxalu a close friend of Mr 
Reagan who had considered 
running if a Republican suc- 
ceeded him in Nevada, has 
also suffered a setback with 
the Democratic win, and may 
now not enter the presidential 
race.

The Winners 


Landslide Texan leader set 
to fill ‘Tip’ O’Neill’s shoes 


From Bailey Morris, Washington 


Inevitably, the mid-term 
US elections produce some 
high dramas in the turnover of 
old and new faces, the slrug- 
▼gles between black and white 
candidates, the winners awl 
losers of Presideni Reagan's 
last campaign. 

James Wright of Texas, foe 
House Majority Leader and a 
born-again populist. was a big 
winner in Tuesday's election. 
Rc-clecttfd by a landslide, he is 
unchallenged in his bid to 
become ihe 4$th Speaker of 
the US House, succeeding Mr 
Thomas "Tip " O’Neill, who is 
retiring. JkI . 

The bushy-brotved Mr w n- 
fo? is in line to control a vast 
political fiefdom of committee 
chairmen, doorkeepers, pages 
and party officials. In sharp 
centres! "to the gruff style of 
.Mr O'Neill, foe Texas Demo- 
crat is regarded as something 
of an crjior. in the silver- 
wmneued tradition of the prsi- 




Among the retiring mem- 
bos was the Howe Speaker. 
Mr Thomas “Tip” O’Neill, 
who has been titular head of 
his party for the past six years 
and President Reagan’s chief 
political antagonist. 

His exit sets the stage for a 
top-to-bottom change in the 
House leadership when the 
100th Congress convenes in 
January. 

Mt James Wright of Texas, 
the House majority leader, is 
ancon tested for the job of 
Speaker. He is expected to be 
replaced as majority leader by 
Mr Thomas S. Foley, the 
current majority Whip, who 
easily won re-election in 
Washington State. A tight 
race is developing for the 
Whip’s job between Mr 
Charles B. Rangel, a veteran 
black Congressman from New 
York, and Mr Tony Coelho of 
California, a member of the 
younger wing of the party who 
gamed national recognition for 
bis record food-raising results 
ob behalf of the Democrats- 

In sharp contrast to the 
Senate, there were no unifying 
themes to explain the House 
results other than general 
voter unease over the economy, 
which showed ap is exit polls. 
But in the House, these senti- 
ments tended to favour incum- 
bents, regardless of party, who 
were able to deliver important 
services to their constituents. 
The allure of the “pork- 
barrel” issues — new roads, 
medical benefits, student loans 
— was strong.

Washington 

Control of the Senate, the 
jewel of foe mid-term elec- 
tions, fell to foe Democrats in 
a severe setback to President 
Reagan's legislative program- 
me during his final two years 
in office. The defeat has 
immense implications for his 
foreign policies and defence 
bufld-up. 

The Democrats had a gain 
of eight seats, giving them a 55 
to 45 majority, a landslide foal 
had not been anticipated even 
in the most gloomy Repub- 
lican projections. Most of the 
Republican casualties were 
newcomers who arrived with 
the Reagan landslide six years 
ago, “one-term wonders” as 
they are known. 

Democrats defeated Repub- 
lican senators in Ftorida, Ala- 
bama, North Carolina, South 
Dakota, North Dakota. Mary- 
land. Nevada, Washington 
State and Georgia. Only in 
Missouri did foe Republicans 
knock out a sitting Democrat. 

The defeat wul lead to 
intensive Congressional scru- 
tiny of Mr Reagan's military 
build-up and foe possibility of 
sweeping cuts in his contro- 
versial Star Wars initiative. 

His relentless appointment 
of conservative judges to the 
federal bench, which hai al- 
ready done much to change 
the ideological shape of the 
judiciary, will be abruptly 
halted. 

His policies on amts control 
will come under closer con- 
gressional examination. And 
programmes like his backing 
of the Nicaraguan Contras, an 
unpopular policy throughout 
foe country, could be en- 
dangered. Senator Robert 
Dole, foe Republican leader, 
said: “I expected to lose but 
not by this margin. It's going 
to be difficult for the 
President” 


The ideological shape of the 
new senate will be determined 
principally by which Demo- 
crats head the key committees, 
when Congress returns in 
January. 

The Armed Services Com- 
mittee will go to Senator Sam 
Nunn, a Conservative from 
Georgia who has misgivings 
about Star Wars, but is gen- 
erally hawkish on defence. 
That would not upset Mr 
Reagan unduly. 

The appropriations com- 
mittee will go to another 
Southern conservative. Sen- 
ator John Stennis of Mis- 
sissippi. at 85 the elder 
statesman of foe Senate. 

The favourite to lake over 
the powerful Senate Foreign 
Relations Committee. Senator 
Claiborne Pell, of Rhode Is- 
land, is an old style liberal who 
rejects further aid to the 
Nicaraguan Contras. How- 
ever. he is staunchly anti- 
communist and Mr Reagan 
might find ways of working 
with him. 

Nevertheless, it will mean 
that Democrats will push their 
own foreign policies rather 
than simply following foe 
agenda set down by President 
Reagan, as happened under 
foe chairmanship of Senator 
Richard Lugar. 

The committee could easily 
become paralysed by ideologi- 
cal fights with foe White 
House if it embarks on liberal 
policies. 

Senator Edward Kennedy, 
foe symbol of everything Mr 
Reagan opposes, is in line for

WORLD SUMMARY 


France seeks EEC 


help in sheep war 


Paris — The French Government has asked the 
European Commission to help French sheep farmers hi aa 
attempt to end the month-old sheep war between Britain 
and France (Diana Geddes writes). 

French (annas are threatening more road blocks and to 
hijack more British lorries unless an immediate solution is 
found to the problem of faffing sbeepmeat prices in France. 

The EEC sbeepmeat management committee is doe to 
jamming the French Governmat’s request for immediate 
short-term aid for die farmers at the end of this week. It 
will aim consider advancing the date fir renegotiating the 
EEC sbeepmeat support regime, which is deemed to favour 
formers. 

French formers r^»ph"» that since die present EEC 
regime ame into force six years ago, imports of British 
mutton have risen by 87 per cart, doubling the French 
sbeepmeat trade deficit to a total of billion francs 
(£107,526,900). 


Libya link Gurkha 


concern protest 


Nairobi — Mr Chester 
Crocker, the American 
Assistant Secretary of 
State for Africa, yesterday 
said the US was concerned 
about links between the 
Sudan and Libya (Charles 
Harrison writes). 

“We are concerned 
wherever the Libyans mis- 
behave beyond their boun- 
daries. We have expressed 
oar views very directly to 
the Sudan,** he said. 


Delhi (Reuter) - India’s 
leading opposition groups 
s to r med oat of Parliament 
yesterday as a row erupted 
over remarks by Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, tike Prime Min- 
ister, on the Gurkha cam- 
paign for a homeland in 
West Bengal. 

The protest followed a 
refusal by the Speaker of 
the Lok Sabfaa, the lower 
house, to allow a debate os 
Mr GaudhTs remarks. 


Basques held 


Madrid — The Spanish Interior Ministry yesterday 
praised collaboration against terrorism by the French 
police alter a raid at Hendaye, just across the frontier, 
winch led to the detention of 30 people, several of them 
Spanish Basques suspected of haring ETA connections 
(Richard Wigg writes). The action came just before today’s 
visit to Mam by M Jacques Chirac, the French Prime 
Minister, who riH have talks, in which terrorism will 
feature heavily, with Seftor Felipe Gonzalez, his Spanish 
opposite number. 

The French police fotmd arms, explosives, police 
uniforms and mere than £100,000 in foreign currencies. 
Seven people were being questioned yesterday. 

The raid was announced jointly by die French and 
S panish deputy interior ministers at a meeting of foe 
Comal of Europe in Strasbourg. 


Western governments on defensive 


Shevardnadze 


scores m 
war for minds 


From Andrew McEwen, Diplomatic Correspondent, Vienna 


The snuggle for European 
hearts and minds in the 
aftermath of the Reykjavik 
summit yesterday took an- 
other turn for foe worst. 

A speech by Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, the Soviet For- 
eign Minister, threw Western 
governments, and particularly 
Britain and France, on to the 
defensive. 


Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of 


State, foiled to 
redress the balance when be 
spoke soon after Mr Shevard- 
nadze ad foe European Con- 
ference on Seouity and Co- 
operation in Vienna. 

Western diplomats com- 
mented that although . the facts 
had not changed, foe Soviet 
Union had again shown itself 
more adroit in public rela- 
tions. One official spokesman, 
protested at the gullibility of 
Western newsmen who thou- 
ght Mr Shevardnadze had 
made fair points. 

In an argument certain to 
carry broad appeal, Mr 
Shevardnadze said Nato had 
calculated that foe Kremlin 
would never accept foe reten- 
tion of British and French 
deterrents as a condition for a 
deal to rid Europe of inter- 
mediate range nuclear (INF) 
missiles. 

He told foreign ministers of 
the 35-nation forum: “Now, 
when we have generously 
made a bold and, for foe US, 
somewhat risky concession, 
we are being presented with a 
modern version- of the comedy 
Much Ado About Nothing. 

“In other words, they were 
bluffing. Are our missiles in 
Europe a threat while theirs 


are just an assortment of 
chocolates from a fancy box? 
. It is regrettable that some 
political leaders are not pre- 
pared to think in terms of a 
nuclear-free Europe.” 

- Government sources poin- 
ted out that foe speech 
skilfully exploited public con- 
fusion between two main 
strands of disarmament pol- 
icy. It was vital to distinguish 
between the search for a deal 
on INF alone and the more 
ambitious Reykjavik proposal 
for a nuclear-free world. 

- The British Government 
conditions for the former woe 
retention of Polaris/Trident, a 
deal coverira INF in Asa and 
provision for reduction of 
short range missiles. 

Britain and most other. West 
European governments be- 
lieve conditions exist for a 
deal, but foe Soviet Union has 
blocked foe path by linking it 
to Star Wars, foe Strategic 
Defence Iniative (SDI). 

The second strand of British 
policy covers the conditions 
for foe Reykjavik proposals. 
The Government could accept 
any cut in strategic weapons 
up to 50 per cent without 
making it conditional on 
troop cots. 

Mr Shultz’s speech did not 
directly answer Mr Shevard- 
nadze's points. Explaining 
American refusal to abandon 
Star Wars, he said: “This we 
cannot accept The West 
needs a vigorous SDI pro- 
gramme as permitted by foe 
Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, 
both as an investment in and 
insurance fora safer and more 
stable strategic balance.”

Laws drafted by Britain

day Times that Israel had a

Mr Yitzhak Shamir, foe

that the Government had its

two Knesset members have

According to Dr Mordechai 
Kremnftzer, of the Hebrew

Government is under - no

statement on Mr Vanunu's

The rules of secrecy in

that even the defendants can 
be prevented from hearing the

THE TIMES THURSDAY NOVEMBER'S 1936 


Familiar 

feasting 

Many nostalgic memories 
come to mind during the 
BBC’s fiftieth anniversary 
jamboree — such as the time 
when poor old Amide had to 
dffenJ her Tolmxnnoiis petti- 
coat against in-judged, para- 
noid probes by Harold Wason 
rather than Norman Tebbit- 
To help jog the memory, the 
okl dear has been delighting cs 
on BBC2 with a celebratory 
feast of repeats, not to be 
confused with the daily did: of 
repeals — though indeed one 
could be by the appearance of 
Faulty Towers on both means. 
Mr Tebbit, however, mttst.be 
thankful that contemporary 
television satire — if Spitting 
Image’s rubbery raspberries 
can be termed such — has none 
of the cold venom of That Was 
the Week That Was ' s devasta- 
tion of Henry Brook as Home 
Secretary, which was repeated 
on Sunday. 

| TELEVISION 

Many old faces have popped 
np again this week looking far 
too young, with hair far too 
short — or too long. Unfortu- 
nately, in Late Night Line-Up, 
the old faces look too old since, 
instead of repeating past 
shows, BBC2 have resurrected 
each night the original. pre- 
senters — including Tony 
BObow and his famous fringe 
which should be a museum 
piece, if it is not already a 
hairpiece. Last night however, 
a famous face from the past 
was shown again looking as we ; 
remember him always looking: 
bald, beaming and, dare I say , 
it a tench boozy. The Billy ' 
Ctmon Band Show was back, | 
with onr ESQ urging ns in his i 
only too mutable way out of 
oof; slumbers. His face was 
also only too mutable, as 
Spike Milli gan demonstrated 
in die show by rolling up his 
trousers, borrowing BflTs 
specs and patting them on his 
bte. BSl himself turned in a 
neat Churchill imitation with a 
frown, a lowering of the 
gjttnerand'a V-sign. - - 

The show was fall to 
doddering with the old fav- 
ourite s? that twinkling tinkler 
Ross Conway, those ever-not- 
so-greens Kathy Kay and Alan 
braze, and Frankie Vaughan 
topping the bill, bat mercifully 
not! giving ns the moonlight 
with the gjrL Apart from 
David Attentmrongh, few tefe- 
vision faces have had as much 
power off the screen as 
popularity on the screen as the 
fate Bifiy Cotton's — except of 
come its executive role is 
performed by the identical , 
features qf bis son. Bill junior, 
managing director of the BBC, 
who now finds that it is his 
tnfin to shoot “Wakey! 
Wakey!” to his own band and 
to light die enemy with a 
frown, a lowering of the 
glasses and a V-sign. 

Andrew Hislop 


I t is autumn in Rome, and the 
evening traffic is the usual 
mad tournament. It is only 
some five miles from, the 
centre out to Gnecitta, but 
already the taxi-driver has spent an 
hour giving bo Quarter in the cut 
and thrust of the traffic-lights grand 
prix. and is making dark ro titter- 
ings about having to go so far out of 
his way. We arrive as dusk is 
falling, and cruise the empty 
boulevards of the grand studio 
Mussolini built. Out of the gloom 
comes a black Mercedes, flashing 
its lights. FelKni has spotted us and 
sent his driver to guide u& At the 
mention of the name Fellini, 
suddenly all is well; the taxi-driver 
beams and breaks into voluble 
enthusiasm. Fellini! If only he had 
known, all would have been 
different. 

A banal episode pert»ps,.but one 
that illustrates the esteem in which 
the plan is still held, and his 
renown" 'among, even the most 
ordinary Romans. One only has to 
imagine a similar journey between 
London and, say, Pinewood. A 
British cabbie breaking into 
wreaths of smiles at the _ mere 
mention of the name of Sir Richard 
Attenborough or Hugh Hudson? 
The notion is ridiculous. But 
Fellini once made a film called 
FeUinfs Roma and, while his good- 
natured egotism often masts upon ■ 
his name is the title, nonetheless it 
is particularly apposite in that case.. 
For Fellini is Rome, in the way that 
Gaudi is Barcelona. 

We go to a nearby restaurant 
and in spite of having just finished 
a week's hard shooting on his next 
project a one-hour television spe- 
cial entitled The Interview, which is 
just a “director's -notebook”, the 
maestro begins to ‘'direct'* a g a in . 
The restaurant is empty, but the 
first table we sit at is not so good. 
So we move. The next table is not 
very simpatico, so we move again. 
Then the platings are somehow 
displeasing, and so the entourage 
plays musical chairs for a while. 
The food appears in very rapid 
order, for the man is well known 
here, and likes to eat quickly. Again 
one only has to imagine the tight- 
lipped ungraciousness with which 
this behaviour would be greeted in 
an English restaurant. But it is all 
conducted in that loud, familiar 
and open manner at which it is 
impossible to take offence. His 
secretary explains with a smile that 
he is always like this. Watching 
him direct his film later confirms 
the infinite pains which he lakes 
withr detail, but always with loud 
good nature- -and. with much 
gesture. 

A large part of his latest film. 
Ginger and Fred, which opens at 
the Cannon Totte nham Court 
Road and the Gate Notting HiD 
tomorrow, is a scathing side-swipe 

at the app alling nature of television 
and the hypnotic grip that it 
exercises upon people's lives. It is 
..not long before the subject of the 
box comes up in conversation, 
especially its effect on the cinema?- 
going habit. He wants to know the 
state of provincial cinemas in 
Britain and shakes his head sadly 
when I tell him the awful -truth. “It 
is the same in Italy. A town like 
Aquila, a big town, now has no 
cinema at all. And one can travel 
miles and miles before finding 
one.” 

He is also interested in the fate of 
movies, especially his own, on 
television; he has frequently ap- 
peared in print deploring the way 


British television has 
recently been showing 
some of the older films of 
Federico Fellini, and now 
his new Ginger and Fred 
comes to London, 
opening tomorrow: 
Chris Peachment seeks 
out the great Italian 
director in his beloved 
Roman fastness

that they are not only cut to length 
but also disrupted by commercials. 
I also tell him about the way that 
the BBC cut out any dubious 
language before nine o'clock, but 
after the stroke of that magic hour 
blithely allow the movie characters 
to swear like troopers. “Ah, I see", 
he says, "after nine the parents go 
to bed, and the children can watch 
without embarrassment.” 

T hat Fellini is so closely 
associated with Rome 
may simply be due to the 
fact that, of all the great 
Italian directors, he was 
the one who stayed. So many of tire 
giants of bis era, Visconti -and 
Pasolini among them, are now 
dead. But a younger generation has 
sought work elsewhere: Bertolucci 
is now shooting The Last Emperor 
in China for the British producer 
Jeremy Thomas; the Taviani 
brothers are in Hollywood making 
a film about the early silent cinema 
of D.W. Griffith; Francesco Rosi is 
making Chronicle qf a Death 
Foretold in Colombia. But Fellini 
does not like to leave his beloved 
Gnetitfa, where everything he ever 
needs is laid on and he feels 
"protected”. 

As it happens he was invited to 
America in the 1 950s by a group set 
up by Burt Lancaster, who wished 
to import a little neo-realism into 
the Hollywood dream-znachine. 
"They gave me two guides to show 
me around. One was a famous 
Italian boss of Las Vegas, but not a 


gangster. He had the most beautiful 
name, Serenella, the serene one. He 
was tall, had dark brown skin and 
lovely white hair, and every time 
that he whistled the theme music 
from La surada he would cry. He 
showed me around. The whole 
place was wonderful All of it Like 
a science-fiction set. or some 
magical realm like Babylon. I said 
that I would love to shoot a film, 
perhaps a Chandler ora HammetL 
But I wanted to make it here, in my 
GnetittA They didn't buy that 
idea. I don't know why. Maybe it's 
turinfiss on my part. Or maybe it's 
too late now. But what I say is: 1 
can’t fight a battle and tell the 
battle at tire same time.” 

Nonetheless^ a film .version of 
Kafka's Amerika is still waiting in 
the wings for him to take up if he 
ever finds the time and the money. 
He likes the book because it. 
reminds him of Dickens, perhaps 
Oliver Tavist or David Copperfield; 
and of course because Kafka 
himself never went to America. . 

His previous film seen in Britain, 
as well as on television recently, £ 
la nave va ( And the Ship Sails On), 
chronicled the adventures on the 
high seas of an enormous ocean 
liner, peopled by the usual Fellini 
gallery of freaks, dwarfs, eccentric 
opera-singers and a lovesick rhino. 
Most of these, except perhaps the 
rhino, were played by English 
actors, including Freddie Jones and 
Barbara Jefford. 

"I like English actors very much. 


They are professional, buk some- 
how detached. Now I like tempera- 
ment,. but when you get tempera- 
ment without control that is no 
good. It is good at the zoo, but not 
in a work of art. Now to be 
detached but also involved, that is 
very typical of your race. It is a 
detachment one often finds in 
drunkenness. And to make art is to 
be a little drunk, to abandon 
oneself. I also like the way they 
turn up in the morning as if they 
were working in an office ora bank. 
They treat the job Hire pro- 
fessionals. They don't ‘aspire’ or 
presume to make ait It is a very 
good equilibrium. You would 
think they would be bewildered by 
my way of working, but they are 
- not We get -on very wefl.” 

F ellini has often written in 
the past of his formative 
experience at the circus 
when very young. .He 
wandered into a tent and 
was immediately befriended by the 
downs, who asked him no ques- 
tions and treated him "like a 
father". He remembers a girl in 
spangled tights “with lovely thick 
legs” and a sick zebra, which bad 
eaten a bar of chocolate. The lovely 
thick women are still very much in 
evidence throughout his work, and 
perhaps the lovesick rhino was a 
half-remembered gesture to the 
zebra. But his love of downs is 
unquenchable, and extends to the 
old Crazy Gang.

London, some 30 years ago. Here 
were six great old clowns, whose 
combined age amounted to maybe 
600 years, aQ doing wonderful 
things. Chesney and Allen. Moo- 
sewer Etidfe Gray. I remember they 
did a parody of Hamlet, in which 
the oldest played Ophelia. She was 
enormous. She was so gro te sq ue 
that it became an absurd kind of 
poetry. They made me fall in love 
with theatre aQ over again. And the 
people stood and applauded for 20 
minutes, very unusual for tire 
English I think. I would love to do a. 
musical about then). A homage to 
six okl downs. Of course the arcus 
is even closer to the British 
tradition, but it reminds ate very 
much of the Neapolitan theatre. 
You have a tradition of Shake- 
speare behind you. Even the mean- 
est actor wflL at some time, have 
appeared at King Lear or Honda. 
With us there is the strong tradition 
of the e ommedia delTarte. They 
have a wonderful physical con-' 
stitution, they know their bodies 
and are dancers or acrobats or 
jugglers. 

“When I did Saxyricon I wanted 
Groucho Marx and Mae West to be 
in it, but most I wanted Bud 
Flanagan. He came out with his 
wife, but alas he was very okl and 
felt he couldn't do it. But I loved to 
watch him. He had such nuance to 
bis downing; much more than 
even Italians. Of course I say this .

The American producers wanted 
him to use a. handsome man hfce 
Robert Redfoid or Paul Newman, 
but be chose Donald Sutherland 
for his “ghostly face". And because 
it "emphasized my attitude to 
Casanova”. Smhertand has already 
written that it was tire most 
extraordinary acting experience of 
hk career am that he had never 
been stroked or patted so much by 
any director. “Ah, he was a sweet 
man. So enthusiastic. He realized I 
wanted a puppet, and so as the 
weeks went by he became stiffer

“lam glad you have not asked 
me about Ginger and Fred \ says 
feffinr. “because it is nearly two 
years since Z made it now. It would

Ginger is in fact his warmest most

because there is a somewhat small- 
er parade of grotesquerie than 
usual loafing past tire camera.

Woe on the Great White Way 


S everal times a year we hear 
the cry “How did that ever get 
on Broadway?**, but the first 
month of the New York 
theatre season sex a record for 
tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth. 
Three out of sis shows died within 
days of their openings, and two are 
questionable tenants for the Great 
White Way. How did so many, so 
fast, cover themselves with gory? 

One of the casualties was Rowan 
Atkinson at the Atkinson, which met 
an untimely death because of mixed 
reviews. White 1 thoroughly enjoyed 
Mr Atkinson's antics, I doubt that his 
show could have survived long even 
with raves, because only passionate 
partisans of British humour would 
have been likely to pay Broadway 
prices for it. At $35 a ticket, a one-per- 
son show here needs a cull figure like 
Lily Tomlin. 

In the cases of the musicals 
Raggedy Ann and Into the light, 
their creative teams flunked Ele- 
mentary Imagination and Intelli- 
gence. A musical based on the 
popular Raggedy Ann and Andy 
stories is potentially a family 
entertainment classic. A winner 
would have to vary the little-giri-Iost 
formula, however, by taking the road 
untravelJed — as did The Wiz with its 
all-black cast, or by artful resurfacing 
- as did Annie with its Rockette 
chorus of orphan moppets. Ii would 
also need a score with at least one 


“Ease on Down the Road'* or 
“Tomorrow”. Raggedy Ann followed 
neither of these rules and turned its 
dolls into dulls. 

Into the Light bad imagination — 
not to mention daring — in taking on 
the theme of enlightenment through a 
story including the scientific in- 
vestigation of the Shroud of Turin, 
the linen cloth some believe to have 
been Christ's burial wrapping. The 
show's creators lacked intelligence — 
not to mention taste — in making fun 
of the shroud's caretakers: a devil- 
may-care cardinal, a pompous church 
politician and a prancing chorus of 
nuns and clerics. 

In one ditty the cardinal described 
his early hardships, including “For a 
decade my abbot/Wouid chase any- 
one in a habit". In one scene, a 
scientist commented about the stains 
on the wrist of the man whose 
crucified image is imprinted on the 
shroud: “Don't worry. Father. If that 
stuffs blood, we'll nail it," Ad- 
vertised as “the musical which brings 
Broadway into the 21st century”. Into 
the Light was enough to make one 
want to miss the milleniura. 

The same producers who dazzled 
Broadway last year with Tango 
Argentina have brought Flamenco 
Paro to the Mark Hellinger Theatre. 
Featuring seven dancers, seven sing- 
ers and six guitarists, this revue 
purportedly oners real Spanish gypsy 
flamenco artists of several genera- 


tions. They perform mostly in en- 
semble and solos, and ail I can say is 
that if they are pure, give me 
decadent Having gone gaga over 
Antonio Gades long ago, I found 
Flamenco Puro austere and boring. It 
may be a treasure for those capable of 
recognizing the real thing, but I prefer 
the theatrics, the physical beauty and 
the flaunted sensuality of what must 
be impure flamenco. 

A similar impatience set in pan of 
the way through A Little Like Magic 
(Lyceum Theatre). The Famous Pro- 
pie Players of Canada, develop- 
raentally handicapped adults who 
manipulate fluorescent pupils, 
props and set pieces under ultraviolet 
lights while invisibly clad in black 
themselves, are here for a six-week 
engagement. The creatures and ob- 
jects ofair, earth and sea they show us 
in sketches organized around person- 
alities tike Liberace and Elvis Presley, 
and themes like James Bond movies 
and outer space, are indeed a little 
tike magic, but a tittle goes a long way. 
This is an unique effort in a noble 
cause, but two hours of magic tricks 
may not find a Broadway audience. 

A t least one drama has been 
successfully launched, al- 
beit Off-Broadway at the 
Promenade Theatre. Si- 
mon Gray has co-di reeled 
with Michael McGuire a fine produc- 
tion of his play The Common Pursuit

Unless you are domiciled in,

an immensely popular BBC 
television sit-com written by 
Jeremy Lloyd and David 
Croft As a trailer for the third 
series, beginning later this 
month, the cast have been 
louring a stage version which 
arrived in London on Tuesday 
night. 

For those bereft of the box, I 
shall sketch the situation. The 
harassed, cynical patron of a 
cafe in the middle of occupied 
France finds himself writhing 
in a web of conflicting de- 
mands. Though frequented by 
the local Wehrmacht garrison, 
his establishment secreily 
houses a pairoftwerpish RAF 
pilots waiting to be smuggled 
back to Blighty, and finds 
itself an unwilling host to 
Resistance intrigue. Exercised

com worth following, and it 
never outstays its welcome. 

Peter Farago's two-hour 
stage production, ably deco- 
ra led by Bill . Pinner’s sets, 
suffers grievously by compari- 
son. With the glaring excep- 
tions of Maria and General

uniquely, do not attract rous- 
ing applause before they have 
uttered their first lines — the 
company remains the same. 
And so too does the scripu 

Instead of recognizing that 
something' more substantial 
would have to be concocted in 
order to realize their theatrical 
ambitions, the authors have 
settled for tbe safe bet of 
recycling one of their most 
successful plots, the Old-Mas- 
ter-in-the-Knackwursu This, 
briefly, concerns a scheme to 
prevent Hitler giving Eva 
Braun an an treasure for her 
birthday by secreting the real 
painting in an'apty ithyphalfic 
sausage, and substituting a 
forgery »n another. 

The story was funny enough 
the first time around, but here 
is inflated to bursting point 
with song-and-dance routines 
and a hydra-headed conspir- 
acy to impersonate the Fuhrer. 
Gordon Kaye, Carmen Sil- 
vers, Sam Kelly and Richard 
Gibson (revealing an un- 
suspected gift for the violin) 
are all proficient performers, 
but the deliberate, even stately 
solidity of the original has 
been dissipated. In presenting 
them life-size, the stage has 
succeeded in diminishing 
them.

Klaus Tennstedt's recurring 
throat illness has forced him 
to withdraw from all conduct- 
ing engagements before 
Christmas. One can only hope 
that he will stride back like a 
lion in the new year, as he did 
at the stan of 1986. Mean- 
while the Scottish National 
Orchestra’s maestro, Neeme 
Jarvi, has stepped into the 
breach, both for this concert 
and for the London Phil- 
harmonic Orchestra's Italian 
tour which started yesterday. 
Tuesday night's programme 
however remained unaltered: 
Bruckner's Eighth Symphony. 
Jarvi, however, favours the 
marginally longer Haas edi- 
tion with its ‘greater exposure 
for the Wagner tubas. 

He is an exhilarating 
conductor of much late Ro- 
mantic repertoire, and obvi- 
ously deserves praise for 
taking on this gargantuan 
work at short notice. But I 
wish he had done more to 
demonstrate that he loves and 
understands Bruckner. The 
problems Jay in three basic 
areas. 

First the iextures seemed 
altogether too raw. The brass 
sound did not biepd: im- 
portant themes were often 
submerged. Second, Jarvi 
failed to instil tight enough

Bloomsbury Theatre 

There was a full house at the 
Bloomsbury Theatre on Tues- 
day night — but only for tbe 
first half of this strange pro- 
gramme imported for an Arts 
Council Contemporary Music 
Network tour in association 
with Dance Umbrella. Pre- 
sumably Steve Lacy’s reputa- 
tion attracted jazz fens and 
Douglas Dunn's brought in a 
dance audience. Their naive 
and uneven collaboration 
with some other artists then 
sent the patrons away again in 
droves.

poems by an American writer, 
Robert Creeley. Most of the 
time I could catch only iso- 
lated phrases. Only when I 
heard more of their heavy- 
handed whimsicality did I 
realize 1 had been lucky until 
then. Lacy, also American but

Vocal strengths given 
admirable emphasis 


The characters and performances 
(even Judy Geeson’s graceful render- 
ing of Mr Gray's cardboard woman) 
linger far beyond the curtain, leaving 
New Yorkers longing for more lit- 
erate new dramas. These being an 
endangered species on Broadway, 
there are at least revivals, and the 
Circle in the Square began its season 
with Shaw's You Never Can Tell. The 
hallmark of this theatre's productions 
is a plethora of acting styles careering 
around like racing cars in a hairpin 
turn. 

Playing it for real is die redoubtable 
Uta Hagen, a Mrs Clasdon who 
maintains a sad dignity, as if she were 
standing tiptoe on the bridge of her 
sinking ship. Victor Garber as Shaw’s 
romantic dentist is utterly natural 
with Shavian style and as ardent a 
lover as he was a funnily frenetic 
juvenile in Noises Off, a diabolical 
conspirator in Deathtrap and a 
beautiful ly-sung suitor in Sweeney 
■ Todd 

Just as Mr Garber is one of our best 
and most versatile young leading 
men, Philip Bosco is among our most 
esteemed character actors. He plays 
the indispensable Waiter like one 
who knows not only his place but his 
win and his show. The supporting 
cast has tremendous energy — some- 
times tumbling into overacting — and 
high spirits. Stephen Porter has not so 
much directed as stirred this concoc- 
tion, resulting in some giddy fijn. 


Rossini's Tancredi. his first 
successful serious opera, 
might hare been written to 
please the entire population of 
Pride and Prejudice, with its 
old-fashioned elegant formal- 
ity for the elder generation, its 
flamboyant virtuosity for tbe 
young gentlemen and its mo- 
ments of sensibility for the 
sisters. It is not made for the 
single viewpoint; it demands 
tbe ability to suspend different 
kinds of disbelief at different 
times. And that must make it 
exceedingly difficult to pro- 
duce. 

Of course it would be unfair 
to judge the Wexford Festival 
staging on the basis of the 
reduced version that was 
brought to London, with rudi- 
mentary props and decor, and 
only the principals in costume. 
Bnt the straight style of the 
acting did not make me regret 
missing the full production. 
And indeed a very bare stage, 
focusing all attention on the 
singers, might well be the best 
solution for operas of this 
kind. 

The first visit from a Wex- 
ford company, made possible 
by sponsorship from Heinz, 
therefore lost nothing that was 
essential, and brought a 
packed, cheering audience a 
performance that was strong

singing, 

Tbe title-role was sung by 
Kathleen Kublmann, an ex- 
perienced Rossinian and one 
with his chirrnps and roulades 
well contained in her voice. 
She has, too, a tone that can be 
at once commanding and feel- 
ing, ideal for a part that is 
often heroic and plangent at 
the same time. Above all, she 
showed here an impressive 
range of colour, from the 
bright warmth of joy to the 
impassioned determination of 
”Di tanti palpiti”, to tbe 
utterly pare, whispered sound 
of her death-bed adieu (this is 
Voltaire's Tancred, not 
Tasso's). 

Opposite her was tbe 
captivating Inga Nielsen as 
Amenable, of whom perhaps 
even more variety is required 
than of Tancredi. Spending 
most of the opera misunder- 
stood, she has plenty of 
opportunity for pitiable arias, 
mid Miss Nielsen made the 


most of them: her prison scene 
and her contrasting outburst of u "

Paul Griffiths :: 


Cherubini’s fierce challenge 


rhythmic discipline, particu- 
larly into the first movement’s 
tricky mingling of duple and 
triple. Pacing this movement 
rather slowly, and rarely sub- 
dividing his beat, did not help 
ensemble. Moreover, the 
movement’s sublime ending 
was marred by what sounded 
like a recurring misprint in the 
viola parts. One wondered 
whether this passage was ever 
played in rehearsal. 

Third, and most important. 
Jarvi Jacked the right son of 
poetic instinct for Bruckner. 
One rarely heard a really 
hushed string pianissimo, for 
instance, and. though there 
was much metrical elongation 
at points in tbe Adagio, the 
build-up of tbe great climaxes 
desperately needed a more 
natural rubato. Yet there were 
some spirited things. The 
Scherzo bumped along with 
heavyweight excitement at a 
good tempo, and the siring 
tone in the Adagio never 
lacked stikiness. Perhaps in 
Italy conductor and orchestra 
will come to understand one 
another better.

Dunn is a very fine dancer i 
who has grown to resemble , 
somewhat his former boss. ] 
Merce Cunningham. His gift 
for rhythm is amazing: he can 
make a whole solo out ofa jog- 
trot forward, sideways, slip- 
ping back, plus a few arm 
movements. He also shows an 1 
amazing facility for moving as ' 
if dancing on rolling logs. At 
one point, when notes spat- 
tered out like water from a 
dentist's jet. he stopped in 
baffled amusement. His con- 
tribution is simple, skilled and

There is a very large lady 
with him who walks and 
waves her arms a little, and 
the stage setting is a large 
geometrical painting by Ken- 
neth Noland, which changes 
colour under the lighting. The 
musicians, led by Lacy's pliant 
saxophone, sit at floor-level 
beneath the stage and are 
heard through amplifiers. Oli- 
ver Johnson, the percussion- 
ist, is impressive, especially at

The show is called Futuri-

hope.

Medee 

Teatro Comunale, 
Florence 

Maria Cailas sang the first 
Medea of her career in 
Florence's Teatro Comunale 
in 1953. The Comunale, in 
conjunction with - the Paris 
Opera, has now revived’ 
Medee for the first lime since 
that great occasion, with Shir- 
ley Verrett as protagonist. 

In spite of an announced 
indisposition. Verrett gave an 
impressive performance, hurl- 
ing Medea’s curses with dev- 
astating abandon and proving 
beyond doubt that her voice is 
well suited to the pan. She was 
often taxed to the limit of her 
powers, but this is certainly 
what Cherubini intended: a 
soprano who could sing 
Medea’s music with effortless 
ease (impossible to imagine) 
would miss half the character. 
Verrett's limitations were 
interpretative • rather than 
technical: although she acted 
with conviction, ber singing 
lacked a consistent gradation 
of colour and phrasing to 
match Medea’s changing view 
of her predicament. The result 
was a fragmentary perfor- 
mance that failed to attain real 
tragic stature. 

Ernesto Veronelli encom- 
passed most of the notes in 
Jason's part, but rarely pro- 
jected them with much dra- 
matic force. Patrizia Pace was 
a sweet-toned Dirce, Nicola 
Ghiuselev a stiff, strained 
Creon. Tbe highlight of the 
evening was Maigarita Zira- 
mennann’s singing of Neris’s 
beautiful aria of consolation, 
“Ahf Nos peines seroot 
communes”. 

Medee, composed in 1797. 
occupies an important place in 
the development of opera as a 
stepping-stone between the 
classical and the romantic. 
Bruno Banoletti emphasized 
this forward-looking aspect of 
the score in a performance of 
great dramatic urgency, his 
orchestra responded vigor- 
ous!)', although it sometimes 
had to scramble to keep up 
with the maestro's frenetic 
beat. 

The action was dominated 
by Ezio Frigerio's imposing 
set — a huge Pantheon-in- 
spired cupola, lilted back so 
that both stage and audi- 
torium seemed to be inside iL 
A world of peace and ordered 
calm was thus created for 
Creon and his subjects, only to 
be torn asunder by the arrival 
of Medea: the cupola crum- 
bled as Corinth fell victim to 
her sorcery. The brilliant

THE TIMES 


PROFILE 


BRYAN GOULD 


T he first lime anybody 
suggested to Bryan 
Gould. just elected to 
Labours Shadow Cabi- 
net and appointed the 
partv's campaigns director, that he 
might be a Labourite he burst into 
tears of shame. 

He was a small boy in New 
Zealand at the time, being brought 
up in one of those families where 
no one talked about politics but 
everyone automatically voted 
Tory (or National Party in their 
case). 

What spark of radical zeal it was 
that brought the stem rebuke from 
his grandfather has been forgotten. 
And it was many years later before 
Gould was attracted to politics, 
having left New Zealand to come 
to Oxford. 

So hard has the political bug 
bitten, however, that Gould, prob- 
ably the most articulate and able 
man on the Left of the Labour 
Parly, now finds himself one of 
the * party's key backroom 
personalities in the run-up to the 
next election. As campaigns man- 
ager. succeeding Robin Cook, he 
will be in charge of the list of 132 
target seats which Labour has to 
win to be sure of an election 
vjctor>“ and he will be the chief 
channel of communication be- 
tween Labour MPs and the party 
headquarters in Walworth Road. 

He will have a vital input into 
the party political broadcasts and 
he will be a major influence on by- 
election tactics. Not least he will 
have to use his considerable 
charm to persuade enough MPs to 
roll up and do their bit in by- 
election and local election 
campaigns. 

It is in many respects a make-or- 
break job. Yet as a young man 
Gould had no thoughts of a 
political career. When he arrived 
at Oxford, a 23-year-old Rhodes 
scholar with a degree from Auck- 
land University, he found the 
Oxford Union and political soci- 
eties of his time silly play- 
ac ting. On his first day at Balliol he 
took the voices he heard outside 
his room to be deliberate 
caricatures. 

Gradually, however, he found 
to his concern that everyone in 


British society seemed to have 
their place, decided on criteria 
such as how they spoke.There was. 
too. the shock of encountering 
Britain's vast rundown housing 
estates, unlike anything in New 
Zealand. Significantly it was hous- 
ing which formed the theme of his 
maiden speech in the Commons. 

What finally led Gould to join 
the party was what he regarded as 
the attempt by the City to frustrate 
the election results of 1964 with a 
run on the pound. A sharp animus 
against get-rich-quick City slickers 
has stayed with him ever since. 
But be "is not a man who snipes 
against the City from the comfort 
of ignorant prejudice. Wearing no 
hair shin, he is happy with facts 
and figures, ready to do his 
homework. 

He carried the Labour team on 
the' hideously complicated Finan- 
cial Services Bill, which has just 
completed its progress through the 
Commons, with a mastery of 
detail which has won him private 
plaudits from Tories as well as his 
own side. Thai is why some 
bracket bim with John Smith as a 
future Chancellor and it is why the 
second role Neil Kin nock has 
given him is that of shadowing 
John MacGregor, the Treasury 
Chief Secretary, who has been 
giving the Labour Pany headaches 
by lotting up the alleged cost of the 
party's policy promises. 

G ould entered Par- 
liament in 1974 after a 
spell at the Foreign 
Office, where his initial 
enthusiasm for the 
Common Market turned to dis- 
illusion as he watched De Gaulle 
carve up Europe in hard-hearted 
self-interest, and some time spent 
lecturing in law at Worcester 
College, Oxford. 

In his first spell in the Com- 
mons Bryan Gould hunted with 
the Left. He was scornful of the 
post-war consensus politics em- 
ployed by Callaghan and Healey 
and became a leading scourge of 
the Common Market. His fluency 
on his feet and appetite for work 
nevertheless earned the approba- 
tion of the Whips and he was 
appointed parliamentary private 
secretary to his fellow anti- 










■ 9 . 








Marketeer Peter Shore in 1975. 

Two years later Gould was one 
of three PPSs sacked for voting 
against the Government on a 
Common Market measure which 
involved raising import duties. In 
a display of loyalty rare among 
ministers. Shore refused to ap- 
point a replacement and soldiered 
on for the rest of the Parliament 
without a PPS. He and Gould, 
who later returned the com- 
pliment by backing Shore for the 
party leadership, remain friends. 


Under Callaghan's leadership, 
Gould, already a member of the 
Tribune Group, became a leading 
figure in the left-wing Labour Co- 
ordinating Committee, after being 
approached to join by Michael 
Meacfaer. What he feared then, bis 
allies say, was that Labour might 
win the election on what he 
regarded as soggy policies, allow- 
ing Callaghan to claim that such 
policies were vindicated. What he 
wanted was vigorous debate on 
more socialist alternatives. 


After a while, however, he 
discovered that the LCC was 
becoming a front for the Bennites 
and dropped out He had no 
particular animus against Tony 
Benn, but Gould is not the kind of 
man to be anyone's acolyte. (He 
has lately rejoined the LCC, now 
that it has become once again a 
focus for the thinking Left). 

He lost his marginal seat of 
Southampton Test in 1979 and 
spent the years between then and 
the 1983 election as a reporter and

Eye. Back in Parliament as mem- 
ber for the Ford town of Dag- 
enham. he has notched up a 
number of firsts and revealed 
himself as a robust strategist. 

He was die first left-winger to 
call for a drive against Militant, 
realizing that it would have to be 
the Left- not the Right, which saw 
them off. He was the first to call 
for a revision of Labour’s attitude 
to the sale of council houses, 
which had proved such an election 
bonus for the Tories. And he was 
the first on the Left to articulate 
the attitudes which are now 
symbolized by the cuddly Left 
Kin nock style of leadership. 

Ever suspicious of politics con- 
ducted by label. Mr Gouid has 
spelt out some of the home truths 
his party needed to hear. The 
rigidity of what were claimed to be 
"left ” positions, he insisted, 
cloaked an essential conservatism. 

The young marrieds on the new 
estates." he told his party, were a 
class whose aspirations Labour 
had ignored. Yet looking for 
policies to replace the wishy- 
washy social democracy that had 
been carried off to the SDP, 
Labour was "forced to rummage 
around in a sort of historical 
junkshop where the only ready- 
made ideas are a clapped-out. 
reactionary dogma which was 
barely relevant to the 1930s. let 
alone the 19S0s”. 

The idea that Labour could go 
on as it was in the hope that one 
day the scales would drop from the 
eyes of the British populace and 
they would embrace the Hard Left 
as their lost leaders was simply not 
credible. 

Last year later he counselled 
that, by resorting to demo-poiitics 
or speaking the language of vi- 
olence or pretending to be some 
sort of revolutionary movement, 
**we betray the issues we claim to 
care about and we abandon the 
people we claim to defend"

Few other leading figures in the 
Labour party have dared to dish 
out so many Home truths. Bryan 
Gould's trick has been to retain 
the voting support of the Left 
while he has done it. Their 
affection and the respect of the 
Centre Right has v, on him election 
to the Shadow Cabinet, and now 
he has the chance to put some of 
his new realism into practice. 

A devoted family man 
with two children, a 
keen, creative cook and 
a reasonably fit and 
youthful figure ai 4 7 , 
the pixieish Gould is personally 
popular throughout Parliament 
and a dab hand with the media. 
He wtil fit happily with the two 
characters who have done so 
much to put Labour back in the 
running — General Secretary Larry 
Whitiy and Communications 
Director Peter Mauds Ison. Like 
them, Gould is not worried by the 
techniques of modem politics. 

He will be happy to use polls 
and advertising and slick promo- 
tional videos where it helps. "It 
doesn't invalidate the message." 
he telis friends. And. as a former 
presenter, his television appear- 
ances will doubtless be more 
frequent than were Robin Cook's. 

His first task will be to see off 
the Alliance, whose defectors, he 
believes, are often going to the 
l ones. Bui he does not believe in 
doing that with slanging matches. 
Gould's message will be that it can 
best be done by proving Labour's 
positive progress. 

If he can do that he will be on 
the way to a glittering future. In 
Jeffrey Archer’s Firs: Among 
Equals that other Labour Gouid, 
Raymond, came through to the 
very top. It is not impossible that 
Bryan Gould, the new man with 
the red rose in his buttonhole, 
could eventually do so too.

Mystery of the 
lost hostage 

As the world celebrates the release 
from Beirut of Dr David Jacobsen, 
John McCarthy, a Briton, remains a 
captive — if, indeed, he is still alive 


While attention was focused 
this week on the American 
hostages in Beirut, Terry 
Waite, fresh his success in 
negotiating Dr Jacobsen's re- 
lease. found time to mention 
the plight of John McCarthy, 
the British journalist believed 
to be held by Lebanese kid- 
nappers. There was. he said, 
“a glimmer of hope". 

McCarthy, acting bureau 
chief of Worldwide Television 
News in Beirut was last seen 
on Thursday, April 17. when 
he made the rounds of the 
small community he had got 
to know over the previous 
four weeks to say good-bye. 

On the Tuesday of that 
week US aircraft, some flying 
from bases in Britain, had 
bombed targets in Ubya. A 





Kidnapped: John McCarthy 

telex message from his 
London office had advised 
McCarthy that West Beirut, 
the predominantly Muslim 
half of the capital where he 
had been living, was too 
dangerous to stay in. Britons 
had become prime targets for 
kidnappers. 

McCarthy was reluctant to 
leave. Apart from the excite- 
ment of covering a war. whose 
complexity he was just 
begin ing to unravel, he had 
enjoyed his work and had 
made new friends. There were 
the drivers with whom he had 
shared adventures in southern 
Lebanon and Beirut, the local 
journalists, the foreign 
correspondents— in particular 
a Palestinian girl who worked 
for an American newspaper. 
On the morning of his depar- 
ture he wrote to her, apologiz* 
ing for having to leave. He 


said he ielt he was abandoning 
a world he now felt a part of. 

McCarthy saved his final 
farewells for the staff of the 
Commodore Hotel, where he 
had been staying. For safety's 
sake he travelled the dan- 
gerous route to the airport in a 
two-car convoy; but he did not 
get two miles out of the city 
centre before his car was 
intercepted and he was driven 
away towards the sprawling 
slums in Beirut's southern 
suburbs. 

Nothing has been heard of 
him since that day. His name 
regularly appears on a long Jisl 
of 20 or so kidnapped for- 
eigners, but he is the odd man 
out because no one has 
claimed his abduction and no 
ransom bas been demanded. 

With Lhe severing of rela- 
tions between Britain and 
Syria, the power most likely to 
hold the key to his liberation 
will not be inclined to help 
him. The reduction of staff at 
the British embassy in Leba- 
non means that his potential 
for release has been whittled 
away still further. 

His girlfriend in London 
and his parents and older 
brother in Essex are fast 
becoming Middle East experts 
as they attempt to monitor 
political moves in the region 
and weigh up the con- 
sequences for McCarthy, who. 
if he is still alive, will this 
month celebrate his thirtieth 
birthday after seven months 
in captivity. 

McCarthy went to 
Hailey bury School before 
reading American studies at 
Hull University. He joined 
WTNin 1981 asa script writer 
and producer. His friends say 
he has an amiable and mature 
personality which might 
breach the kidnapper-hostage 
divide, and a very retentive 
memory for songs, poems and 
plays, which might help him 
cope with isolation. 

Terry Waite has hinted at 
the possible release of two 
more American hostages: 
France is hoping that some of 
its kidnapped citizens will 
soon be freed because of a 
political deal struck by Paris 
with Damascus and Tehran: 
but for McCarthy the future, it 
seems, remains bleak.

Tame in the wild: at Slimbridge, Sir Peter Scott established a successful formula for bird care and conservation 

Fowl deeds by the Severn 


The church in the Gloucester- 
shire village of Slimbridge has 
a very tall steeple, topped, 
incongruously, by a golden 
cockerel. It might by now have 
been replaced by a duck, as a 
final marker on the flight path 
into the world's most famous 
wildfowl sanctuary, a few 
wingbeats to the west. 

Imagine an airline route 
stretching from the Arctic 
Circle to the Mediterranean, 
and you have an understand- 
ing of the importance of 
Slimbridge and the scattering 
of safe havens which the 
Wildfowl Trust — 40 years old 
next Monday - maintains 
around Britain for an enor- 
mous congregation of winter- 
ing wildfowl migrating out of 
the ice-locked north. 

At headquarters, in a hud- 
dle of low buildings on the flat 
protected side of die River 
Severn, lhe telephonist is busy 
answering the slock inquiry of 
the season. Have any arrived 
yet? “Yes, there are five now. 
four more since this 
morning." 

Apart from researcher Ei- 
leen Rees, who has spent nine 
years ai Slimbridge studying 
them. Sir Peter Scott was the 
first to know ihai lhe Bewick's 
swans were back after their 
tremendous 2.300 journey 
from the Soviet Arctic - . 

Once he would have looked 
them up in a much-thumbed 
directory which . contains a 
“mug shot" of every Bewick's 
swan to have visited 
Slimbridge since 1964. But 
now a computer does the job. 
holding details of over 4.000 
faces in breeding pairs. 


In its 40 years, Sir Peter Scott’s 
Wildfowl Trust has provided a safe 
home for countless migrating birds 


Sir Peter is mildly amused 
when the face of the first 
arriving swan fails to jog the 
electronic memory. “No, of 
course the computer wouldn't 
know that one: it was a cygnet 
last year." 

At 77. Sir Peter still actively 
administers his trusL living 
and painting in the house at 
Slimbridge behind the most 
famous picture window in the 
country. In his great book- 
lined studio even the litter bin 
bears the trust’s motif of two 
swans flying in unison and 
miniature wildfowl crowd 
most available surfaces. Occa- 
sionally they squeeze up to 
admit a panda or a butterfly, 
reflecting his wider priorities. 

Today he has climbed hos- 
pitably to the top of a 50ft 
observation tower which 
sprouts out of his house to 
show us the trust's domain — 
the SCO acres of water mead- 
ows which it leases and a 
further 4.000 acres of pro- 
tected tidal mudflats beyond. 

Set below us. built to Sir 
Peter's design, is the biggest 
bird table in Europe — “l 
suppose the Americans have 
something bigger now". Beat- 
ing into this Heaflirow for 
birds come the arriving spe- 
cies — Bewick's swans, white- 
fronted geese, pochard, tufted 
ducks and pintail, like so 
many distinctively liveried 
international jets, on a choice 


of flight paths, west to east or 
nonh to south, all under an 
instinctive air traffic control. 

Sir Peter is concerned about 
one absentee. For four years 
now no lesser white-fronted 
goose has made it down from 
Scandanavia. This bird is 
particularly precious to him: 
40 years ago. on a hunch, he 
first came here and picked out 
the goose, one of the rarest of 
wildfowl, from a huge flock of 
more common white-fronted 
geese feeding on the damp 
eastern margins of the Severn, 
and resolved that this should 
be the site of his trust 

The first meeting of the 
Severn Wildfowl Trust took 
place in a Slimbridge hotel on 
November 10. 1946. Its four- 
fold purpose — conservation, 
recreation, education and re- 
search — were discussed. A 
wooden sign in the village still 
misleadingly points to the 
Severn Trust although it be- 
came the Wildfowl Trust in 
1955. 

Slimbridge contains the 
world's largest and most com- 
prehensive collection of wild- 
fowl: 2.500 resident birds in 
an inner 100 acre predator- 
proof enclosure, drawn from 
127 of the world's 147 species 
of duck, swan and goose. The 
trust has effected some nota- 
ble rescues of birds on the 
brink of extinction - such as 
the Hawaiian goose, down to 


42 pairs in 1945, and the 
white-winged wood duck — 
and established an inter- 
national reputation for wild- 
fowl research. 

The formula perfected at 
Slimbridge. enabling visitors 
to mingle with tame birds and 
study wild birds from hides, 
has been repeated at the 
Trust's six other centres — at 
Peakirk and Welney in 
Cambridgeshire, Martin Mere 
in Lancashire, at Washington 
Newtown, Tyne and Wear, at 
Arundel in 'Sussex and 
Caeriaverock in Dumfries- 
shire. Between them they at- 
tract 500,000 visitors a year. 
The formula has also been 
exported to reserves as far 
a wav as the Mai Po marshes in 
Hong Kong, and the shores of 
Chesapeake Bay in the USA. 

Forty years on, the trust's 
wintering guests are still enor- 
mously dependent on it. Wipe 
Slimbridge and the other cen- 
tres off the map. and many 
thousands of birds would be 
desperately confused and per- 
haps fatally displaced. “Wild- 
fowl are extraordinarily 
conservative.” Sir Peter says. 
“The entire population of 
Spitzbergen barnacle geese 
comes to our Caeriaverock 
reserve in winter. The remark- 
able thing is that the Green- 
land population of barnacle 
geese comes to the Isle of Islay 
— only 1 10 miles north-west — 
and to Ireland. But they stay 
distinct, with no interchange 
apan from the odd bird. Isn't 
that remarkable?"

Piano with a 
perfect echo 


Had the officials iff the Mos- 
cow Conservatoire heard 
about it they could have solved 
all the security problems over 
Vladimir Horowitz's return to 
the USSR in April, when 
people were prepared to swing 
from the light gantry in order 
to hear the great man play. 

The installation of the new 
Bosendorfer computer-based 
piano reproduction system — 
the Bosendorfer 290 SE — 
would have allowed Horowitz 
to play in one halL while wires 
leading from the base of his 
piano could have electronically 
relayed information to a sister 
piano in another haiL Accord- 
ing to Bosendorfer, . what 
Horowitz did in one hall wonM 
be precisely duplicated in the 
other. British pianists will be 
able to try the 290 SE out next 
week, when it has its UK 
launch at the Royal Academy 
of Music in London. 

The respected 160-year-old 
Viennese firm of Bosendorfer 
is uninhibhedly trumpeting its 
computer piano as a signifi- 
cant breakthrough in piano 
technology. For 14 years it has 
worked on the idea which, on 
the lace of it seems only a step 
away from the piano rolls of 
old. 

Those clumsy rolls of paper, 
punched foil of holes, have 
now been superseded by an 
optical device that scans the 
keyboard action 800 times per 
second as the piano is befog 
played, and stores the 
information digitally on an 
audio cassette. By playing 
back the cassette, the keys are 


activated, exactly reproducing 
the performance. The stored 
performance can be edited and 
mistakes corrected with the 
help of a computer terminal. 

At £65,000 for the total 
package it is clearly not a toy. 
Bosendorfer thinks it will have 
two main fnnetions: as an 
educational tool and for use in 
recording studios. 

Teachers and students in 
music colleges, it says, wfll be 
able to analyse a performance 
while it is going on, and to 
compare one performance with 
another. In the recording stu- 
dio a pianist could play 
Beetfaoven's “Haimner- 
klavier” Sonata, for example, 
and make corrections or alter- 
ations before the recording 
engineers start work. The 
computer piano, Bosendorfer 
argues, could represent a 
substantial saving in labour 
costs. 

Others have doubts. John 
Boyden, one of Britain's lead- 
ing classical record producers, 
thinks it will be of limited 
musical value. Great pianists, 
he says, adjust their playing to 
the acoustics of the room. A 
faithful recording in one hall 
may be quite inappropriate for 
another. “In the end,” he says, 
“there is simply uo substitute 
for a human being playing to 
an audience with the minimum 
number of barriers between 
them — and with no safety 
net”

THE TIMES THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6 1986 


BOOKS 


Since the internal workings or 
Private Eye encourage the 
illusion of secrecy, a book that 
suggests that It's anthor has 
somehow got the inside story 
can be effectively judged only 
by someone who shares the 
secret. Since 1963 1 have been 
a member of the editorial staff, 
and hare a dear impression of 
what constitutes the Eye's 
inner core. It has nothing in 
common with Peter McKay's 
slapdash account 

Inside Private Eye is a 
slender volume that reads tike 
an extended piece in the 
magazine's Gravel cofrmu. As 
a forma' editor of William 
Hickey, McKay has learned 
the art of attacking his snb- 
jects via a quoted source. 
McKay is a devoted Ingrams 
man and so we read of the 
Eye’s new editor, Ian Hislop: 
“An heron Wangh informed 
his local paper,*I don't think 
he (Hislop) has the strength of 
cha racter for the job.'" 

This is typical of the book's 
tone. It is the style of the hacks 
who fill Grovel, who cannot 
write a sentence unless it 
carries a sneer calculated to 


Bitch

INSIDE PRIVATE 
EYE 

By Peter McKay

offend. The Eye’s art director, 
Tony Rnshton, is described as, 

**a thin OTicmilmg man of 

forty-five*’. Not true. Rnshton 
is forty-seven. Hislop’s age is 
given as twenty-fonr. He is 
twenty-six. These are just two 
tiny examples from a long list 
of glaring inaccuracies and' 
sheer invention. At one point 
we read an entirely fictitious 
account of how McKay him- 
self was offered joint editor- 


ship following Ingrams's 
departure. Indeed, there is 
hardly a page that is free from 
the author's ludicrous obses- 
sion with his involvement with 
the Eye’s creation, which apart 
from the odd story for Grovel, 
is virtually triL 

Because McKay is a product 
of gossip diary journalism, his 
enthusiasms are mainly direct- 
ed at those who share his 
trade. As a result, no fewer 
than 13 pages are devoted to 
Nfeel Dempster's relationship 
with Private Eye, which again. 
Eke McKay's is as a Grovel 
contributor. “Why”, one 
asfcs,“Oh Why?”, when there 
is hardly a mention of those 
who actually write the 


Private Eye is an 
empty vessel. The first half 
deals with a dull re-telling of 
Ingram 's farewell, ami the 
second with even dader ac- 
counts of the Eye’s libel ac- 
tions. Apa r t from chunks lifted 
verbatim from the magazine, 
there are no jokes, unless the 
book itself is an elaborate 
hoax. Pass the sick bag, Alice.

piled for Harper's and Queen, and 
serialized not only in that mag az in e, 
but much more surprisingly in The 
Times. The schools are lucky — not 
because omission is a guarantee of 
their .good name, but because they 
have escaped the kind of investigation 
that may work well when done in 
restaurants by Christian Mfllau or 
Drew Smith, but which is almost 
always dangerously misleading when 
attempted in schools. 

The schools that are in w31 doubt- 
less survive the book with only 
superficial wounds, though Fort Au- 
gustus Abbey may have to spend some 
money on stamps explaining to par- 
ents that it is not “always raining up 
in that lovely glen; the staff of 
Haberdasher's Aske’s may be wanting

wondering what it mams to be “a

In their responses to the inspecting 
ladies, Heads differed markedly. The 
Headmaster of Shrewsbury was for- 
given for hiding from them and earns 
the highest Harpefs and Queen acco- 
lade. He may be elusive, ‘but he is 
“good-looking, smooth, popular, 
efficient”. One can only guess at the 
adjectival explosion he would have 
earned if the ladies had actually met 
him.The HeadofOiindle — known in 
the profession as a man of high 
quality — was less lucky: “Did not 
want to be interviewed; sounded fairly 
chaotic. Has had head’s house decorat- 
ed from top to bottom.” Did H occur 
to the importunate investigators that 
he might have been extremely busy, 
running a good school? Of course it 
occurred to them, but they preferred to 
write evidence of their own pique than 
suggest that 

Personalities apart — and there are 



education seems of no 
interest to them, though they did

plenty of them to keep things spinning 
along — the fund of useful and.impor- 
tant educational information in the 
book is woefully small The authors 
may, as their press hand-out claims, 
have stood often inedfenito in freezing 
dormitories, and may have spent 
much time prowling around among 
fetid drains. They may have tasted 
some of the food that this week 
receives the Egon Ronay lash. And 
their experience of this is not without 
interest for choosing parents: But on 
the vital matter of the academic 
courses, methods, and aims to be 


found in schools, they are too often 
silent or content to produce foggy 
statistics of GCE results or university 
entrance successes. f 

They have little to say about the use 
of computers in schools, a subject of 
some coctroveisy; about laboratory

depends; on what actually goes ’on in

he can always travel on to the

If parents arc in (hut focky minority

they think foe choice important, then 
they wS inform themselves carefully 
and make many visits. Among the 
contents of this book they will find foe 
questions set oat on pages 9 to 10 of 
foe g re at e st value. These Questions 
they should (earn by heart, and they 
should try to find answers to them, in 
their travels they wifi come across no 
perfect schools: They will see in evtiy 
school some things they do not like 
and some pupils who do not enjoy 
being there: But they need not seek 
other guidance from this book. It is

Not wishing to seem ingrate, 
one struggles to penetrate this

sharp little fable about the

Laughter in the dark 
by a rebel outcast^ 






The key to the 
cupboard of 
Irish skeletons 


T he shade of Oscar 1 
Wilde is from lime to * 
time invoked in these <- 
pages; and no doubt c 
joe Orton understood 1 
Gwendolen's remark that she 1 
kept her diary in order to have < 
“something sensational to t 
read in the train.” Certainly 1 
Orton's own diary is sensa- I 
tional. but possibly not in the 
manner he intended, since it ] 
led directly to his death. When t 
Kenneth Halliweil, his male c 
lover of some sixteen years, 
beat him to death with a . 
hammer and then committed 
suicide, he left a note for the 
police which was in the nature 
of a clue: “If you read his diary 
all will be explained.” ; 

This is not strictly true, 
however, since this book hard- 
ly suggests the possibility of 
such an abrupt ending. If 
Orton’s plays read as if Oscar 
Wilde had been brought up on 
a council house estate, and 
had become very bitter as a 
result the actual world that 
Orton describes here seems to 
luxuriate in the same vainglo- 
rious and slightly seedy come- 
dy. The diary opens in 
December 1966 (just after the 
success of Loot) and one of the 
first treats is the death of his 
mother. She had popped off 
on Boxing Day, meriting only 
the briefest of mentions; then

entrances or exits. If some of 
the more, amusing episode 
seem to have the benefit of the 
prompt-book, that is only to 
be expected in so skilful a 
dramatist: this is social history 
rewritten by an epigrammatist 
and it can be very, very funny. 

Of course there is a sense in 
which it is really laughter in 
the dark, since over it all hangs 
the long shadow of Kenneth 
Halliweil and the hammer he 
took to Orton's skull. 
Halliweil had originally been 
the partner with creative am- 
bitions, but he was foiling 
miserably just at the time 
when Orton was enjoying his 
greatest success. It is a cau- 
tionary tale worthy of one of 
Belloc's verses, but it is unusu- 
al only for its somewhat grisly 
ending. Halliweil was the ar- 
chetypal companion or lover 
who is crushed by the jugger- 
naut of the other partner’s 
feme. The history of literature 
is crowded with such people — 
in his very interesting intro- 
duction, John Lahr quotes the 
words of Thomas Hardy’s 
wife, “If he belongs to the 
public, years- of devotion 
count for nothing.” And in- 
deed as Lahr goes on to say, 
Orton “edited Halliweil out . 
He is here in the diaries, but 
only just. Sometimes Orton 


refers to him quite formally as 
“Kenneth Halliweil", as if be 
were a character he had in- 
vented; and his presence in the 
book brings with it a general 
atmosphere of sickness, argu- 
ment, and moral disapproval 
The busier and more success- 
fill Orton becomes, the more 
Halliweil withdraws into him- . 
self — as if be is going into a 
cupboard and locking the 
door, so that he cannot see the 
light outside. 

T he point about doom ‘ 
and gloom, however, 
is that Orton often 
found them irresist- 
ibly funny, and there are times 
when even his ghastly rela- 
tionship with Halliweil blos- 
soms into comedy. Certain 
scenes in Tangier, for exam- 
ple, are of a tackiness almost 
beyond compare (in the holi- 
day snaps, Orton resembles 
some hybrid of Mishima and a 
pub landlady), but Orion sees 
the tackiness and revels in ic 
he manages to turn the entire 
escapade into grotesque force, 
with enough physical detail to 
fill several filing cabinets of 
the nearest VD clinic. Quota- 
tions are not to be attempted 
in a respectable newspaper.

presented problems. Lahr

The tale of how murderous and macabre drama came to life 


seems wisely to have left most *j 
of the journal intact, although d 
he is perhaps over-zealous in d 
his scholarship. Practically ev- a

A nd vet despite these , 
escapades it is ex- i 
traordinary hpw 
Orton’s normality 
shines through everything - 
at one moment he may be 
playing the Rimbaud, or at 
least the Verlaine, of Noel 
Road. Islington, but al the 
next he is discussing budgeri- 
gars with the old lady who 
lives beneath him. And that of 
course was the secret of his 
charm: his ordinariness had a 
menacing quality, while at the 
same time his oddness was 
somehow cosy and unthreat- 
ening. Lahr says that “Orion 
had willed himself into the 
roic of a rebel outcast: beyond 
guilt or shame." 

The last days of his life are, 
in that respect, typical. In July 
1967 he sees The Desert Song. 
he picks up stray men; he 
spends a damp weekend tit 
Brighton. Halliweil himself 
was slowly breaking down, but 
Orton shows no real sign of 
noticing it- A friend saw them 
a little later, when Halliweil 
was clearly on the edge of 
disaster that killed them both. 
Onon was, as usual, being 
“hilarious": “And l thought, 
my God, he canT see. He 
hasn't noticed." It is a terrible 
irony that Orton could invent 
the grotesque or the macabre 
without recognizing it when it 
was in front of his nose; on the 
stage he created murderous 
and defeated lives, but be did 
not know when life itself was 
beginning to take the same 
,p form. It is the kind of blind- 
ness that makes an artist, but 
ife it may also kill him. 


Charles Osborne, unfashion- 
able believes in artistic excel- 
lence: that some artists are 
better than other artists. This 
would be unexceptionable, 
nay salutory, had the poor 
man not been employed for 
twenty-odd years as Literature 
Director of the Arts Council 
(the capitals are de rigueur). as 
if “literature" could be con- 
jured up by the Council (or 
even counsel), and “directed" 
by a civil servant 

Early on, Mr Osborne dis- 
covered that the writers’ orga- 
. nizations, as well as individual 
% writers, disapproved of his not 
regarding his responsibuines 
as if he were a social services 
or further education nanny, 
and that the word elitist was 
frowned upon. “Community 
arts", that contradiction in 
terms, devolution to the re- 
gions (let Wessex decide if 
Thomas Hardy’s any good) 
became approved ideas — ut- 
ile wonder that ure

The Literature Panel (of 
which I was a member for its 
first four years) was set up in 
1966 and attempted to estab- 
lish a policy for literature — 
another absurd idea. Mr Os- 
borne realized that if money 
were given to individual writ- 
ers it was almost bound (as, 
administratively, it was neces- 
sary for them to apply, 
through sponsors) to go to 
third-raters - when it didn't 
go to fourth-eaters. Even 
worse, they were paid to write 
rather than desist from wnt-

ing, as if the world was short of 
literature or of publishers. Mr 
Osborne argued, down the 
decades, that the allocation 
could more usefully be spent 
in finding ways to increase the 
dissemination of literature: 
more readers, book buyers 
were required, and —frank- 
ly — fewer writers. 

His account, in these typi- 
cally uninhibited pages, at 
growing up in Brisbane and 
endeavouring to practise as an 
actor and arts journalist (op- 
era is his forte, and he has 
written admired books on 
Verdi, as well as the first 
biography of his friend, Au- 
den) is too blandly, fruitily 
told; and is but a preliminary 
to his 100-odd pages which 
dispassionately recount his 
ridiculous lime at the Arts 
Council. Like Frank Hams, he 
doesn't suffer fools gladly. 


they are meat and drink to 
him; and many puffed-up 
reputations, artistic and politi- 
cal, here take glorious fells, the 
quick (usually slow) as well as 
the dead: I congratulate the 
publishers on finding an un- 
usually sensible libel lawyer. 

There are character-reveal- 
ing anecdotes by the score. My 

favourite is of the first Minis- 
ter for the Aits, Jennie Lee, 
inadvertently delivering a 
speech Mr Osborne was about 
to deliver. The Literature 
Director suggests that Aneunn 
Be van’s widow had little feel- 
ing for the arts; but concedes 
that Lord Goodman, when 
chairman of the Council, 
found her an essential ally.

How different from the

romp through the 1970s. It is 
lucky that be is such an old 
hand at story-telling, because 
Leaning in the Wind is the 
silliest stuff that ever I read. It 
is like a soap opera, with mnu- 
instalments crowded in upon 
each other, and less than no 
limp to absorb one before the 
next is on the air. A small cast 
of remarkably gullible charac- 
ters, who nonetheless occupy 
intellectual and high-powered 
positions, moves in a triangle 
between post-colonial Africa, 
where witchcraft flourishes, 
Bicester, for adultery m the

just how seriously the whole

Raban: forever wandering 
with a hungry heart 

awesomely well done, almost 
painful in its dispassion. 

The geographical sea-dis- 
tance that Mr Raban keeps is 
twinned with an inner dis- 
tance. He evokes the small 
societies of town or village 
with an acid incisiveness. His 
eye for the betraying detail, for 
the outer sign of the inner 
malaise, is lynx-sharp. The 
poetry is in the pitilessness. 

There is a moment when he 
meets Philip Larkin in Hull. 

At first this has the feel of a 
statutory stopover with the 
territorial literary non 
(Theroux had done the same 
with Borges and Jan Morris.) 
Then it becomes clear why 
Larkin’s poetry appeals to 
Raban. It teaches, he writes, 
“that there is no desolation so 
black that it cannot be made 
habitable by style. If we live 
inside a bad joke, it is up to tu 
to learn, at best or worst, to tell 

it well." „ „ 

Mr Raban tells n well. 
Nobody of his generation 
writes more subtly and imagi- 
nativelv on travel. His day-to- 

dav coasting produces an 
, inexhaustibly vivid record ot 
, sea-changes. Only occasional- 
. ly the book betrays the awk- 
, ward joints of a voyage too 
l often interrupted, or is too 
thin in events for the images 
I that it excites, 
r It ends al an unexpected 
j anchorage home. Mr Raban

marshes, near the sea. "I like 

a its absences." he writes - and 
e no wonder, when presences so 
n often disgust him. But here m 

e the marshlands there are no 
■e braving gentry voices, and the

r obscure dissenters, “living at 

5 f an oblique angle to the rest of 

■;i England, so for out on the 
je country’s watery margin that 
thev had almost run away to

Defence: never forget the 



Sir John Nott, 
Defence Secretary 
during the Falklands 
war, argues that 
Britain’s strategic . 
planning should be 
influenced more by 
the fiasco of 1956 
than victory in 1 982 

T he Suez operation took 
place within two months 
of my arrival as an 
undergraduate at Cam- 
bridge. It coincided with 
the Soviet invasion of Hungary. I 
felt as emotionally involved on 
the side of the Hungarians as I felt 
angry about the Conservative 
government's intervention in the 
canal zone, not least because the 
world's attention on the Hungar- 
ian tragedy seemed to have been 
diverted by the futility of Suez. 

I had arrived at Cambridge after 
five years' service as a regular 
soldier in Malaya: during that 
time I had acted as .ADC to the C- 
in-C Far East, who was the 
immediate superior of General 
StockwelL then GOC. My military 
service and my acquaintanceship 
with General Stodcwell led me to 
follow the military’ operation at 
Suez, under Stockwell’s com- 
mand. with more than usual 
interest. 

Cambridge was rife with politi- 
cal controversy during that first 
term. A protest meeting on Suez, 
addressed by the Hon Anthony 
Wedgwood-Benn. was disrupted 
by the Pitt Club and the Trinity 
Foot Beagles; I felt a warm 
sympathy for Benn. There were 
noisy debates in the Union. I 
proposed the rather foolhardy 
motion. “That this House would 
risk a third world war for the sake 
of a communist satellite in 
revolt". In those debates and the 
ferment that surrounded them. 
Suez and the Soviet intervention 
in Hungary became heavily inter- 
twined. As long as I live, 1 shall 
never forgive the Soviets for what 
they did to Hungary — and, to this 
very day, I feel remorse that my 
country did nothing to help them 
in their need. 

Suez became part of history. Its 
memory faded except, I suppose, 
among those of my subsequent 
parliamentary colleagues who had 
been in the Commons in 1956. 1 
seldom remember the Suez affair 
being mentioned by my immedi- 
ate friends who came into Par- 
liament in 1964 and 1966. Agroup 
of us were primarily interested in 
economic affairs. But f suspect the 
influence of Suez on our develop- 
ing thinking was quite profound. 
For it was a period when a number 
of us were under the intellectual 



influence of Enoch Powell, then 
shadow defence secretary. 

It was in discussions in our 
Economic Dining Gub with Pow- 
ell and others that I came to 
believe there could never be a full 
measure of economic and strategic 
independence for the United 
Kingdom unless we rid ourselves 
of a fixed exchange rate. 1C at the 
time of Suez, the government had 
been defeated by foreign exchange 
pressure against a pegged rale, we 
had to remove this prime obstacle 
against our freedom to act as a 
sovereign nation independently of 
the United States and other 
powerful allies. Yet, post-Suez, the 
notion that we might seek to act 
militarily except in allian ce with 
our friends seemed pure delusion. 
Suez had shown the futility of such 
grandiose notions. 

The Heath government came 
and went Sterling was floated and 
the sterling area abandoned within 
a few months of my becoming 
Economic Secretary in 1972. 
There was a further period of 
opposition. We won the 1979 
election and the key economic 
reforms, far and away the most 
important being the abolition of 
exchange controls, had more or 
less been completed by 1981 when 
I was sent to the Ministry of 
Defence, the most fascinating job 
in the Cabinet Thankfully, for our 
national freedom of action, we 
had avoided entry into the Euro- 


pean Monetary System and the 
associated political pressures in- 
herent in such a system — thus 
keeping sterling free and politi- 
cally independent for the coming 
baitles against Galtieri and 
Scargill. Suez was forgotten, but it 
must have been subconsciously 
very much in my mind when I was 
forced, by the inability of the 
Ministry of Defence to pay its 
bills, in 1981, to review our 
strategic planning. 

Seeing -the need to rein back 
defence expenditure to a more 
appropriate level in relation to onr 
national resources, I strongly be- 
lieved then that unless the Cabinet 
imposed upon the Services the 
need to narrow their priorities 
within HMG’s strategic guidelines 
(which are, of course, horribly 
difficult for any cabinet), we 
would wind up in the mid-1990s 
with a totally incoherent set of 
defences. Something had to give. 

Our first priority had to be 
credible deterrence from nuclear 
blackmail and Soviet aggression in 
the North Atlantic or on mainland 
Europe; decidedly not equipping 
ourselves for another Suez or post- 
colonial war. Influenced by Suez, I 
believed that we could not and 
should notbea rather ill-equipped 
military policeman for the world, 
even at the behest of the United 
States. If we had occupied the 
canal rone, what then? Were we to 
govern Egypt? If we were to 


intervene in the Gulf today, how 
could we sustain it? It was dearly 
foolhardy for the Americans even 
to send troops into Beirut 
The post-Suez strategic and 
financial imperatives point 
remorselessly in 1986, as they did 
during my Defence Review in 
1 98 1 , to the need to end the “naval 
task force" mentality, which is by 
no means the same thing as an 
out-of-area capability. We cannot 
afford to maintain two operational 
carriers, with one in refit, since it 
involves a cost in men, aircraft, 
equipment and supporting escort 
vessels that will unbalance onr 
force levels and capabilities across 
all three Services. 

A lready, only five years 
after the Defence Re- 
view,. the much criti- 
cized 50-frigate Navy 
seems unsustainable. 
The concept of global reach for the 
Royal Navy — for the balanced 
naval task force — is nostalgia for 
the days of Empire, the protection 
of the Suez Canal and India. It 
makes for a “good looking” Royal 
Navy, but very little else: Suez 
demonstrated the new world for 
Britain and the Falklands changed 
nothing. 

We set out to recapture die 
Falklands, after the invasion in 
April 1982, with no large carriers 
and too few carrier aircraft. Had it 
not been for the immense skill of 


our forces, under the outstanding 
direction of Admiral Lewin, and 
the great courage of the Prime 
Minister, coupled with good lock, 
the whole affair might have ended 
very differently, conceivably in a 
much greater disaster than Suez. 
In reality, we were imperfectly 
equipped to undertake such a task, 
nor with the diminished size of 
our national budget can we ever 
hope to be so. The muddled 
defence priorities of the previous 
two decades enabled us to do the 
job with a Nelsonian bravado and 
a rather delicate calculation of 
risk. By such are great deeds done. 

But we should not plan to equip 
ourselves for such an adventure 
again if we seek a credible 
maritime/air capability in the 
1990s to defend these islands and 
its people from the zeal threat. 

When the scrap metal mer- 
chants landed on South Georgia, I 
went over to file large globe in my 
office in the Ministry of Defence, 
and hunted for the Falkland 
Islands. Aspol on the map dose to 
the heart s of some British global 
strategists and bird watchers, it 
was largely unknown to me. I was 
shattered at the distance involved 
— some 8,000 miles, almost as far 
away as Hawaii in a horizontal 
otinZ — andl recalled for the first 
time in nearly 30 years the 
ter ri f ying ly long five days that it 
took those Landing Ship Logistics 
to get from Cyprus to the canal 


zone — a mere 300 miles or so. 

During the critical week be- 
tween the first intelligence indicat- 
ing the Argentine invasion — 
Wednesday, Match 31 — to the 
sailing of the fleet on Monday 
April 5, the -memories of Suez 
played a greater part in my own 
hesitations than almost any other 
angle factor. I knew that Suez had 
been associated with political 
indecision, dissension within the 
Cabinet, United States pressure on 
tiie pound, and seemingly the 
inability of the Services to move 
their men and equ i p m ent from A 
to Bwrth sufficient despatch. Each 
step between July and November 
1956 was dogged by political 
initiatives sought by the United 
States, leaving our mflitaiy . fan- 
ners in a vacuum. 

At least we were free in April 
1982 of the straxtjacket of a fixed 
exchange rate or the European 
Monetary System; for I doubt if 
we could have withstood the 
German and DM wm* “neutral- 
ism** of that time had we been in 
theEMS. 

To win back the Falklands, and 
d e monstrate our refusal to submit 
to brigandage, it was essential for 
there to be a major military 
response, and immediately : The 
country owes it to my old antago- 
nist, Admiral Leach (for we were 
worlds apart in our strategic 
understanding), for the magnifi-

How Ridley could rise 
to the rates challenge 


Many Tory MPs are cross with 
Nicholas Ridley, the Environment 
Secretary. They threaten serious 
rebellion against his proposals for 
next year’s rale support grant by 
which central government pays for 
that part of local spending not 
covered by rates. They complain 
bitterly that there will be a large 
shift of money from the shires, 
particularly in the South East, and 
from the outer suburbs, which will 
gel less government support, in 
order to give more to the inner 
cities and some counties. 

Ridley tells them in reply that 
27 counties out of 39 will actually 
get more this year, that the figures 
for rate increases now being 
bandied about by the protesters 
are unduly alarmist, and that the 
richer a community is, the more it 
can raise with minimal increase in 
rates, whereas for the depressed 
inner cities (where few pay the full 
rate) high rates are necessary to 
raise very little. Betides, he has 
helped by raising the total grant by 
£2.9 billion this year. 

But all this is detail. The 
principle of the matter is what 
counts. Ridley believes pas- 
sionately in the free market and 
non-interventionism. Yet he is 
apparently acting in the role of a 
redistribution isL What is even 
odder is that quite a few of his 
critics — principally those with 
constituencies in the Home Coun- 
ties — are anything but keen on his 
free market doctrines. Francis 
Pym. for instance, who led the 
shire rebellion last time, is a 
renowned economic Wet but tits 
for a Cambridgeshire seat which 
would be adversely affected. Last 
year Pym argued that the alloca- 
tion would lead to “wholly 
unacceptable" rate increases in 
East Anglia and would penalize 
the good managers to help the bad, 
an argument which might come 
mote naturally from Ridley him- 
self: 

So why is Ridley risking another 
rebellion in what could be the 
months immediately before an 
election? Why alienate opinion in 
the Tory shires where some seats 
are challenged by the Alliance? 
The answer is that be has no 
option. Under the system by 
which money is handed from 
central to local government, the 
minister controls the total sum 
dispersed but has comparatively 
Utile control over how it is 
distributed. That is all done under 
the 1980 Loral Government Act 


which distributes money accord- 
ing to two principles. First, how 
rich is a community and what can 
it raise in rates? Second, what are 
its needs? 

From this follows a complex 
computerized exercise to deter- 
mine what an authority requires to 
provide services comparable to 
those elsewhere. It is an attempt to 
achieve equality. But wbat it has 
also achieved is that once the 
government has settled the size of 
the total Exchequer allocation to 
local authorities (which this gov- 
ernment has brought down from 
61 per cent to. 46 per cent), the 
formulae of the 1 980 Act take over 
for its distribution. Money is 
allocated according to what has to 
be spent on various services, and 
the local authorities which get 
most are those with the largest 
proportion of old people, people 
with poor housing, one-parent 
familes and the like. 

As it teppens, these are also , 
often the leftist authorities most 
given to overspending and indif- 
ferent to how the money can be 
found, and frequently the most 
bureaucratically inefficient. 

How did such a system come 
about? It was brought in by 
Michael Heseltme, whose eco- 
nomic attitudes are (another para- 
dox) a good deal closer to Pyra’s 
than to Ridley's. But it was not as 
a redistributionist that he in- 
troduced the 1980 Act when he 
was Environment Secretary. For 
Heseltine had been faced with an 
even worse system under which 
the more an authority spent the 
more it got out of a finite total. 
Now, the more an authority 
spends above a total threshold, the 
more it costs the ratepayer. 

That does not worry the big 
overspenders, few of whose citi- 
zens pay rates in part or in full. 
Indeed, out of an electorate of 
about 3S million, only 12 million 
pay rates in fulL That is why 
Ridley is committed, as his im- 
mediate predecessor Kenneth 
Baker never was, to substituting a 
community tax for which every 
adult is liable, in place of a rating 
system with no real relationship to 
ability to pay. He would also 
introduce a much simpler grant 
system which would not be dis- 
torted by an authority's actual 
spending. But that depends on a 
Tory victory at the next election. 
Meanwhile, we are stuck with a 
system under which allocation is 
determined by “needs” estab- 


lished by what the big spenders 
choose to spend, not by the 
minister who finds the money. Yet 
it should be a fundamental prin- 
ciple of government that the 
minister providing money should 
also have responsibility for how it 
is distributed and spent. 

Fending a thorough reform of 
local finance, Ridley’s immediate 
idea for dealing with the problem 
is to get away from the existing 
anan^OTent whereby grant lost by 
a local authority which over- 
spends is put into a pool from 
which it is redistributed — includ- 
ing to the overspending authori- 
ties themselves. He proposes a bill 
to let the Treasury have the 
money. But some of his Tory 
critics want him to appease the 
shires and outer suburbs by aban- 
doning the idea and allowing the 
redistribution to continue. I 
should have thought there was a 
third way, which nobody seems to 
have raised. Why not redistribute 
the money to all local authorities 
except those which overspent? 

Ridley is a man of principle who 
marries conviction with keenness 
of intellect to an unusual degree. 
Will he be able after th? general 
election to produce a more sen- 
sible system? Loral government 
spending bedevils our national life 
because nobody is really respon- 
sible for it. Ministers who finance 
it are not Neither are the local 
authorities which spend so lib- 
erally within their fiefooms really 
responsible to electors who vote in 
small numbers largely as a way of 
expressing current feelings about 
national politics. But there is 
another more fundamental ques- 
tion to be faced. 

At present the system is entirely 
geared to channelling money from 
growth and prospering areas into 
social support within areas which 
are declining and decaying in such 
as a way as to do little good in the 
long run to the unfortunates who 
live there. The system bolsters 
dependency, psychological and 
financial within these areas in a 
way which intensifies hopeless- 
ness and non-recovery at the 
expense of the places where 
growth is a better prospect. 
Equalization has, of course, al- 
ways been necessary in local 
government and there can be no 
question of abandoning respons- 
ibility for real need. But it is lime 
to face the way the system works 
more honestly than anyone has 
cared to do so far.

Can we ever deal 
with Tehran? 


The reports that a framer US 
national security rfiiefhad entered 
Iran posing as an Irish priest to 
broach a resumption of US- 
Iranian relations have focused 
attention on Iran's internal poli- 
tics for the first time for many 
months. After a period ofapparent 
rfllm in which the religious 
fanaticism of the Iranian trade r - , 
ship seemed to be slightly reduced, 
there is evidence that a power 
struggle is in progress within the 
ranks of the rating ayatollahs. 

A new political . joke has been 
making the rounds nr Tehran: 
Visitors to Ayatollah Khomeini's 
house saw that he had a caged 
bird, a young crow. “Why have 
you chosen a crow, Imam?” they 
asked. “1 want to see. if it is true 
that crows live for 300 years", die 
octagenarian Khomeini replied. 

The joke is a symptom of the 
weariness which many Iranians 
now feel with the seven-year rule 
of the Ayatollah and a sign of the 
decline m the respect winch he 
now commands. What emerges 
from private conyersaticms with 
Iranians, both inside and outride 
the clerical regime^is a picture of 
accentuated factional ization 
among the clergy, their isolation 
from the people and & general 
disillusionment in the nation with 
whatever Khomeini stands for, 
especially the six-year war with 
Iran and militant Islam 

Khomeini is reported to be 
gravely iU. His voioe has not been 
heard on Tehran radio for several 
weeks and the half-hidden struggle 
of the past few years between the 
many political factions within his 
regime has broken to the surface 
with the arrest on treason charges 
of a number of relatives and aides 
of Ayatollah Husain-Ali Mont- 
azeri, the man officially elected to 
succeed him. 

The greatest division within the ; 
Islamic Republic is to be found 
wi thin the cabinet of prime min- 
ister Mir-Husain Mousavi, which 
is split along ideological lines. 
Mousavi and most ofhis minis ters 
lean strongly to the left. They 
believe, for example, in the na- 
tionalization of foreign trade on 
the model of Eastern Europe. 
(Mousavi recently visited East 
Germany and Hungary). This 
faction wields the greatest in- 
fluence over the daily running of 
the country. It & headed by Afi- 
AJcbar Has he mi Rafsaujani, 
Speaker of the Islamic Majlis 
(parliament), who is widely de- 
scribed as already the strongest 
man in Iran after Khomeini. 

A minority of ministers, how- 


ever, notably the foreign minister, 
Afi-Akbar Vdayati, have strong 
links with the bazaar merchants 
and s up port President Ali Kha- 
menei's bid for the top job. This 
faction is also extremely anti- 
Western at present and would like 
to strengthen ties with the radical 
stales of tin Third World and the 
Soviet bloc. 

PCrcbed precariously in be- 
tween is the official heir to 
Khomeini's mantle, Ayatollah 
Monlazeri, in the desert city of 
Qom. He has acquired the reputa- 
tion of being a simpleton, a naive 
provincial cleric who often wastes 
■ his time calling on zealots to curb 
theft excesses so as not to alienate 
any more of the faithful. 

Speaker Rafsanjani and Presi- 
dent Khamenei both support 
Montazeri’s selection as 
Khomeini’s successor, for they are 
themselves too young at present to 
lay any claims to theological 
supremacy. But they are evidently 
confident that they could confine 
his leadership to purely spi r i tual 
matters. 

Another challenge to Mont- 
azeri’s authority is expected to 
crane -from the direction of five 
“grand" ayatollahs outside 
Khomeini’s circle. They have 
tolerated him so far, but now 
appear to be furious that the 
relatively - junior Montazeri has 
been promoted over their heads. 

How serions a challenge they 
pose remains to be seen, but 
according to one insider: “The 
grand ayatollahs are very power- 
niL One of them; Khoii, is 
believed to receive enough money ; 
from his followers in a year to 
finance the g o ve rnm ent fra a few 
months. Also, Iran has about 
. 120,000 clergymen and Khomeini 
has not been able to give official 
posts to more than ten per oent of 
them. The rest are siding with the 
other grand ayatoffahs.” 

What is certain is that the clergy 
engaged in the present unresolved 
power struggle can change their 
allegiance at will, and that every 
group sees the question of improv- 
ing relations with the West only as 
material for rhetoric and a ploy in 
the domestic power game. Most 
radicals, who still hold the upper

THE TIMES THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6 1986

I Pennington Street, London El 9XN Tdephone: 01-481 4100 






Yesterday’s mid-term elec- 
tions have given an under- 
standable psychological filHp 
to the Democrats and . the 
corresponding amount of 
gloom to the Republicans. To 
wrest control of the Senate by 
winning nine seats in which 
President Reagan himself has 
vigorously campaigned 
^ throughout the . summer is 
* sweet revenge for six yean of 
defeats. It will greatly improve 
the hopefulness of the Demo- 
cratic party’s presidential 
hopefuls. 

But an election in which the 
governing party loses eight 
Senate seats overall yet gains 
die. same number of state 
governorship is one which 
resists any very simple 
explanation. According to the 
precedents of the “sixth year 
itch” the party controlling the 
White House in the sixth year 
of a presidency has lost an 
average of six governorships, 
seven Senate seats and 48 seats 
in the House of Repre- 
sentatives. This year, the 
Republicans may have lost 
one Senate seat over the odds, 

, but they have kept their house 
losses down to a mere six and 
actually gained control of gov- 
ernorships in major states like 
Texas and Florida. 

Both the Senate losses and 
the gains in governorships, 
moreover, can be partly ex- 
plained by the accident of 
which parties office holders 
were up for election this year.- 
With 22 Republican senators' 
(who had originally been 
elected in the 1980. Reagan 
landslide) compared to only 12 
Democrats coming before the 
voters, the Grand Old Party 
simply had more to lose than 
its opponents. 

Exactly the reverse was true 
of the governorship elections 
where 27 Democrats faced re- 
election compared to only nine 
Republicans. In the House 
elections, by contrast, the 
incumbents’ possession is 
equal to nine points of the law. 
Most interest was therefore 
fixed upon the 43 “open” seats 
in which the incumbent was 


^tiring. Of these, the Demo- 
crats won seven — and the 
Republicans won seven. What 
these figures suggest is that 
there has been a smal l moves 
ment of opinion to the Demo- 
crats in the context of the new 
political stability established 
by President Reagan in the last 
six years. The voters have 
shifted slightly left wi thin a 
political spectrum that has 
shifted considerably to the 
right 

This interpretation emerges 
even more strongly when we 
consider the • nature of the 
campaign. If even this modest 
movement of votes 
occured in response to a' 
bruising ideological argument 
in which the Democrats bad 
attacked President Reagan's 
economic defence and 
policies, it might have greater 
political significance, rusted 
it was President Reagan him- 
self who attempted to raise the 
ideological temperature and 
the Democrats who frustrated 
this appeal by offering what 
one wag called: “less of the 
same”. 

In these drcumstances, the 
elections became a contest 
between the superior wealth 
and organizatfon. of the 
Republicans and the greater 
ability of the opposition 
Democrats to exploit eco- 
nomic discontents and local 
issues such as farm bank- 
ruptcy in the mid-west This 
was a contest in which the 
Democrats won a marginal 
: victory. Irritation got out more 
votes than money could. But 
the larger battle had already 
been conceded. 

It is against this electoral 
background that President 
Reagan and the Democrat 
controlled Congress will de- 
cide whether to compromise 
or struggle between now and 
the 1980 presidential election. . 
It was predicted by many 
people, before yesterday, that a 
Senate loss would weaken the 
Resident's prestige and em-* 
boiden the- Democrats to op- - 
pose his policies on a large 
scale. After the fed, however. 


Democratic spokesmen have 
deliberately avoided claiming 
any sweeping victory of prin- 
ciple and called instead for co- 
operation between Congress 
and the administration. 

Leading Democrats know, 
both from the cam paign anj 
from theevidence of exit polls, 
that both the President and his 
main policies on the economy 
and defence remain broadly 
popular. He might respond to 
any frontal attack from Con- 
gress by vetoing legislation 
wholesale and even win popu- 
lar support for doing so. 

Secondly, though Mr 
Reagan may have Tost his 
political majority in the Sen- 
ate, he retains an ideological 
majority there through the 
election of some very Conser- 
vative southern Democrats At 
least , four of the new Senate 
intake, for instance, are strong 
supporters of aid for the 
Nicaraguan Contras. 

President -Reagan is likely, 
therefore, to have only mod- 
erate trouble with the 
lesiglatrve branch of govern- 
ment. He may find it harder to 
have -conservative judicial 
appointments confirmed; he 
may discover that funding for 
the defence programmes will 
be pared back; be win un- 
doubtedly be irritated by the 
manner in which the Senate 
Democrats use their control of 
committee chairmanships to 
promote issues and pro- 
grammes which he opposes 
such as protectionism and 
racially based quotas. On the 
broad outlines of economic 
and foreign policy, however, 
he and the Congress will be 
able to agree on common 
ground only slightly to the left 
of the. policies of the past six 
years. 

The 1986 elections will 
probably be seen in retrospect 
as a pause in the Reagan 
revolution. Whether it will 
continue or it has already 
reached it apogee is something 
that will be decided by who- 
ever becomes president in 
1988. ’

Since the move • of News. 
International’s newspapers to 
Wapjring, users of public li- 
braries in some *.30 local 
authority areas throughout the 
country have been unable— 
for periods of time varying 
according to the political 
d whim of their elected repre- 
^ sentatives — to read The 
Times on the reading room 
shelves. They have been de- 
prived of their normal access 
to The Times illegally. They 
have been deprived of. that 
access by people who in most 
cases knew they. were acting 
illegally. That knowledge has 
now been confirmed by Mr 
Justice Watkins’s judgement 
yesterday - and not before 
time. 

An alarming aspect of the 
Wapping dispute has been the 
way that the armoury of a 
hostile labour movement has 
been augmented to include 
censorship alongside. the more 
traditional weapons of vi- 
olence and intimidation. As 
well as libraries without their 
normal display of newspapers, 
we have seen students revile 
their lecturers — simply on the 


grounds of their writing for 
News International tides. We 
have seen Labour politicians 
do all in their power to prevent 
journalists going about their 
daily work of reporting the 
news. 

But a still more alarming 
abject of the dispute has been 
the failure of foe censors to see 
their activities for what they 
really axe. To impose censor- 
ship is one thing. To pretend 
that it is not censorship; to say 
that an academic institution 
has to come to compromises 
on academic freedom (as Rus- 
kin College is doing in The 
Selboume Affair); to say that a 
library is just another public 
service to be politicised with- 
out a thought that is a 
symptom of foe most virulent 
sort of disease in our national 
public life.. 

It is a disease which, without 
due exposure, could become 
an uncontrollable plague. 
Yesterday’s judgement is an 
important step towards identi- 
fying the dangers of this totali- 
tarian strain in today’s Labour 
movement 

The three local authorities 


whose actions have been 
submitted to judicial review 
were, in the words of the judge, 
“deliberately flouting the law 
in defiance of impeccably cor- 
rect advice”. The London 
Borough of Camden bad 
stooped to “transparent 
camouflage”. “There could 
hardly”, he conduded,“be a 
clearer manifestation of an 
abuse of power— foe remedy 
for which it is for this court 
and not the Secretary of State 
to provide”. 

On that final point, the 
responsibility of the Secretary 
of State, it is just as well that 
foe court came to the conclu- 
sion it did. For the role of the 
Government in protecting the 
integrity of libraries from the 
political censors has been first 
to claim poweriessness and 
second to delay. ; 

Delay was precisely what the 
local authorities wanted. If the 
ban bad been having the effect 
on the Wapping dispute which 
its perpetrators intended, then 
such dday might have been 
sufficient for the censors to 
achieve their ends. 


MUSICAL CHAIRS IN PRETORIA 


South Africa’s President Botha 
reshuffled his cabinet in grand

three more and creating a slew 
of new deputy ministers and a 
host of rearranged portfolios. 
The question that needs to be

activity amounts to 
more than a rearrangement of

Anyone who tries to discern 
a shift to foe right or left wirthin 
South Africa’s ruling party will 
be disappointed. The elevation 
of Mr Louis Le Grange to foe 
less arduous role of Speaker 
will upset no-one except pos- 
sibly the South African police 
which he so conspicuously 
foiled to control His succes-

disciplined culture of the 
South African defence force.

invented apartheid to sound 
convincing when they claim

remains to be seen. 

It is common cause among 
the white electorate in South

BBC libel action 

From Mr Michael Rakusen 
Sir, I refer to the tetter 'by 
Professor P. S. Attyah (October 
29) in which he argues that the risk 
of committing libel is an insepa- 
rable concomitant of media activ- 
ities. Surely, however, the rids of 
incuning enormous expense in 
order to dear one’s name is not 
one which should be borne by 
private Individuals when feeing 
public timitedJiability companies 
or public corporations. 

Perhaps Professor Atiyah might 
consider an amendment to Order 
82 of the Rides of foe Supreme 
Court so that a preliminary 
application might be made to a 
judge for an order that the costs of 
such a forthcoming libel action be 
paid by the defendant in any

The British Council 


From the Director-Generai of the 
British Council 

Sir, l am grateful to you for 
reporting (October 30) the ev- 
idence which I gave to the Select 
Committee on Foreign Affairs 
about Britain's overseas cultural 
relations. But please allow me to 
conect the emphasis of your 


repomn two respects. 


did not accuse this Govern- 
ment of neglecting cultural rela- 
tions. The fact of the matter is that 
Britain's overseas cultural rela- 
tions have not been given ade- 
quate weight by any government 
This national hesitation, which 
still persists, contrasts strongly, far 
example, with France, Germany 
and Japan. We are neglecting to 
lay proper foundations for our 
future rotation and political and 
commercial success abroad. 

There are over 50,000 overseas 
students studying in Britain. That 
number is insufficient but not 
toy". What I did say was that 
number of Indonesian stu- 
dents — 350 — in Britain is 
“paltry” by comparison with the 
thousands that go to France and 
Germany. 

Yours sincerely, 

JOHN BURGH,

Investor protection 

From Mr Anthony C Shepherd 
Sir, The Government has asked 
the Securities and Investments 
Board (SIB) to reconsider its 
attitude on “polarisation” with 
reference to banks and building 
societies. This is in response to 
pressure from foe banks, who wish 
to preserve their commercial in- 
terest 

They want to be aide to con- 
tinue to be seen as independent 
advisers whilst supporting their 
in-house life assurance and unit 
.trust companies to a greater extent 
than can be justified under the 
rules of “best advice”. 

SEB quite rightly considers the 
issue of polarisation to be fun- 
damental to investor protection. 
This point has been accepted 
elsewhere, despite the consid- 
erable disruption and extra ex- 
pense to intermediaries that it will 
cause. 

How is it that foe banks and 
building societies expect to op- 
erate effective “Chinese walls” 
whilst insurance companies, bro- 
kers, investment managers, solic- 
itors and accountants have all 
been deemed incapable of doing 
so? If exceptions ofthis magnitude 
are to be made, why bother with 
an Act at all?

Tackling issues of inner city decay 

From the Director qf Architecture 
arid Planning, Borough of Sunder- 
land 

Sir, You report (October 29) that 


President Reagan who once de- 
clared to the UN his wish to 
‘replace a world at war with one 
where the mle oflaw wiB prevail”. 

Whatever we may think of the 
merits of Nicaragua's dispute with 
the US, the frets are mat Nica- 
ragua did lake the dispute to the 
International Court; the court did 
decide that it had jurisdiction; and 
it did determine foe issue condo- 
sively in favour ofNkaragua. This 
is not some pohtical kangaroo 
court, but the supreme inter- 
national institution for interpret- 
ing and applying foe taw.The 
Security Cmmril is the body for 
caiforringtbe law. 

The US response to foe decision 
has been not merely to ignore it, 
but to veto any attempt to raise it 
before foe Security Council and to 
compound foe breach by voting a 
further Si 00 nrifikm to promote 
the very policy which has been 
held unlawful. 

No one who seriously , believes 
in the rule oflaw can condone that 
action. To condemn the attempts 
of a successful litigant to enforce 
his judgment as “politicar is 
simply nonsense. 

Yours sincerely,

his Royal Highness, the Prince of 
Wales, criticised Britain’s 
housebuilders for concentrafos 
on the development of green fidd 
sites. Noth withstanding the 
protestations of the Honseltafld- 
ers Federation (report, October 
30), there can be Ihtle doubt that 
foe builders' current preoccupa- 
tion with green field sites is at foe 
expense of achieving foe urban 
renewal of derelict sites within 
inner cities and towns, where it is 
» urgently required. 

It was experience ofthis kind in 
the USA which gave rise to the 
"doughnut theory” — that foe 
excessive movement of. housing 
and ancillary into the 

outer area sought by developers 
will perforce leave a hole in our 
town centres. Reversing foe 
doughnut theory, it may wdl be 
that we must have the “theory of 
the pasty” — with aQ foe meat and 
fifling bade made. 

Disraeli once referred to the 
British as two nations, but now we 
are dividing cities, towns and 
neighbourhoods rather than creat- 
ing one combined community 
which should be foe base for our 
democracy. The days of the 
"wrong side of the park” ought to 
lave gone: we are educated, wears 
civilised and we are one common 
people, so why should there be 
such divisions? 

A bad law inevitably barfs to 
bad derisions. Such are those 
which result from part 10 of the 
Local Government, Planning and 
Land Act 1980. Under the Act, the 
Secretary ofState for the Environ- 
ment can direct a local authority 
to retease land for development, 
regardless of whether tins is 
acceptable in terms of the overall 
strategy of the authority. 

One wonders, cynically, how 
much influence the House Bufld- 
ere Federation has had on both the 
itioa and on the recent round 
directions which have been 
issued. 

Yoms fa ithfull y, 

A T. RAFEEK, Director, 
Architecture and Planning, 


Nobody seems to be interested in 
tiie fundamental issue, and until 
this is dealt with no amount of 
exhortation or administrative flat 
will pro vide a permanent solution. 

That land is idle on a long-term 
basis in major cities must mean 
that the market mechanism has 
broken down, that foe asking price 
is too high. Several reasons con- 
spire to produce this situation, of 
which two are probably crucial. 

First, there is so financial 
penalty for holding 
dercUci/vacant land. The reason 

for this lies buried in the history of 
rates, as a tax on the no minal 
income from beneficial use, ignor- 
ing the serious adverse external- 
ities that are imposed on other 
land owners by dereliction. 

Second, land use planning, by 
designating areas for particular 
uses, creates expectations 
concerning land value. Not un- 
naturally, owners (whether public 
or private) will hold 
dereiict/vacam land in the hope of 
considerable gain. 

Until these two issues are 
tackled, with foe aim of driving 
land prices down in those parts of 
cities with large areas of 
derelict/vacant land, a satisfactory 
solution will elude us. 

Yours feithfully, 

PHUJPKIVEU.

From Dr Philip T. KrveH and

Sr, Everybody, it seems, agrees 
that the existence of large areas of

at a time when pressure on green 
fidd sites is intense, is a scandal 
However, the public discussion is 
being conducted as aseareh for 
scapegoats — foe local authorities, 
the housebuilders, or whoever.. 


European Parliament urged, 
in a resolution passed unani- 
mously in early October, the 
Council of the EEC to take all 
appropriate action. Drafted by 
Lord Bethel, the resolution asked 
all governments with influence in 
the area to live up to their

Combating Aids 

From Mr Stephen Everson 
Sir, Mr Macy, in his letter today 
(October 29) attempts to draw Dr 
Norman’s arguments about Aids 
to a logical conclusion. The result, 
however, owes more to sophistry 
than it does to logic 

He wishes to remove any charge 
of divine responsibility for foe 
disease whilst still claiming it to be 
a punishment for sinful behav- 
iour, namely anal intercourse. 
This thesis is one of peculiar 
incoherence and, since it wifi no 
doubt prove attractive to some, 
requires quick refutation. 

Mr Macy invokes foe notion of 
unintentional punishment “vis- 
ited upon humans by 
themselves” It is central to the 
idea of punishment that it be 
administered intentionally: sim- 
ple bad consequences of actions 
are not punishments fen: those 
actions. 

One cannot see Aids as a 


punishment without understand- 
ing it to be a sign of divine wrath. 
This would, of course, be a 
possible position, but someone 
who held it would have to admit 
that such wrath has a significant 
lack of precision in expression. 
For, despite what Mr Macy says, it 
is not only anal intercourse which 
spreads the disease but vaginal 
intercourse as well 


It is surely far better to see foe 
theological implications of Aids as 
precisely and only those of any 
other cause of widespread suffer- 
ing and immature death. One can 
then get on with offering help to 
those who are affected by it Any 
attempt to divide its victims into 
the “guilty” and the “innocent” is 
simply irrelevant to that central 
Chnsnan enterprise.

Hungary today 

From Judith Countess of listowel 
Sir, Roger Boyes has painted a 
grim picture of Hungary (articles, 
October 20, 21). His statistical 
data were broadcast by Hungarian 
TV and caused distress to many 
Hungarians. 

Yet, especially outside Buda- 
pest, Hungary is not all despair or 
apathy. 1 have been in Hungary 22 
times since 1964, including last 
July and August this year. I speak 
frixly good Hungarian — after 10 
days' practice I am taken for a 
local. 

Mr Boyes did not say a word 
about the provinces, I mean the 
peasantry, who form 30 percent of 
the population. They have never 
had it so good, although this year 
the drought did them much harm. 
The Kadar regime made a genuine 
success of the collective farms, 
and every man or woman who 
works in one now receives an acre 
of land as dose to his or her 
cottage as possible. The collective 
helps with seeds, fodder and 
transport 


The remark of an elderly peas- 
ant was typical: “From your 
grandfather we stole a little; when 
we were driven into the collectives 
we stole as much as we could; now 
we nolc 

we need tor pennies." 

Mr Boyes did not mention that 
officially there is no unemploy- 
ment — in feet there is a good 
deal Workers have to go to foe 
factory and collect 60 per cent of 
their wages every Thursday. On 
other days they can come in and 
play cards or chess, pr use factory 
equipment for black market work. 

As Mr Boyes rightly pointed 
out, Hungary is neither a com- 
munist nor a capitalist country. 
Vacillation between the two 
makes thing * even more difficult 
than if she had complete com- 
munism or “socialist capitalism”. 
This adds to die stress of the 
people, especially in Budapest, 
where Mr Boyes probably spent a 
good deal of his visit 
Yours sincerely, 

JUDITH LISTOWEL,

Church alterations 

From the Rev Gordon F. Raid 
Sir, While the regulations of the 
Catholic Church may not be as 
exacting as those of foe Church of 
England, it is not correct to state 
(leading article, October 20) that 
there is nothing parallel to the 
faculty system when alteration to 
church buildings is proposed. 

Such alterations nearly always 
involve considerable expenditure. 
At parish level, foe parochial 
finance committee must first be 
consulted for validity and, if the 
expense exceeds foe diocesan levd 
(usually £l,000-£5,000) per- 
mission must additionally be ob- 
tained from the diocesan finance 
board. The procedure is dearly 
stated in canons 1292-1295. 

Nor is control amply financial. 

MV diocese lit** rmiirm 


foal any plans of this son must 
first be submitted to the art and 
architecture committee of foe 
diocese for approval 

The code itself states that, in 
addition to these requirements, 
permission is required from the 
Holy See 

if it is a question of the alienation of 
something given U> the Church by 
reason of a vow, or of objects which 
are precious by reason of their 
artistic or historical significance. 

The same applies not only to 
disposal but also “in any dealings 
in which the patrimonial con- 
dition of the juridical person may 
be jeopardised”.

has been justified. 

The completeness of the Axis 
defeat which was flashed on foe 
world last mght came as a surprise 
even to the balk of foe Egyptian 
public, and achieved a correspond- 
ing moral effect. The spirit of 
confidence in which the battle has 
been fought by the British High 
appears from the order 
of foe day. tamed to foe troops by 
General Montgomery yesterday. It 


runs;- 


The present battle has now lasted 12 
days, during which all troops fought no

worn down. The allied air forces are 
taking a heayy toil of lne cohnone

to keep up the prasame and not to relax 
for a moment. We have the chance of 
potting the whole Panzer army in the

troops on what has been achieved. 
Complete victory is almost in sight- On

Iran seeks arms | BR’s 
for return of 
Beirut hostages 




From Robert Fisk, Nicosia 


The bizaire series of secret 
negotiations between the Am- 
ericans and Iranians — upon 
which the Mr Hojatolislam 
Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafoanja- 
ni, Speaker of the Iranian 
Parliament ceremonially 
“Mewthe whistle” on Tuesday 
ni gh t — has persuaded Iran to 
set out its public conditions 
for securing the release for US 
hostages in the Lebanon. 

They include further ship- 
ments of American aircraft 
parts, weapons and ammuni- 
tion — which the Iranians say 
was paid for during the Shah's 
time — and a promise that the 
US will not freeze Iranian 
assets in the West 

The Speaker's revelations 
about Mr Robert McFartane's 
secret visit to Tehran have, 
however, in no way dimin- 
ished Iran's desire to help free 
American and French hos- 
tages. While Mr Hussein 
Mussavi, the Iranian Prime 
Minister, W3S claiming that 
there could be no deals with 
Washington. Mr Rafianjani 
and Iranian diplomats outside 
Tehran were indicating that 
there was room for compro- 
mise. 

There was a hint, too, that 
Lebanese Shia Muslem pris- 
oners in Lebanon should be 
released from a jail in the vill- 
age of Khiam. which is run by 
Israel's proxy '‘South Lebanon 
Army" militia. “The demands 
of the oppressed Lebanese 


Muslims should be granted to 
secure the release of the 
hostages," Mr Ra&anjam 
said. 

It became dear yesterday 
that Mr Rafsanjam had dis- 
closed the US-Iranian con- 
tacts to demonstrate that it 
was Iran — not Syria — which 
holds the key to the hostages 
in Lebanon and that it is noth 
Iran that the A m ericans will 
have to deal. Significantly, the 
banians yesterday chose to 
reveal details of an exchange 
of letters between Mr Rafian- 
jani jwri M r Yasnhiro Nakaso- 
ne, the Japanese Prime Minis-, 
ter, which suggested that Syria 
had foiled to secure promised 
American concessions after 
arranging the release of pas- 
sengers aboard the hijacked 
TWA jet in Beirut last 

s umm er. 

A letter from Mr Rafoatyani 
to Mr Nakasone in July last 
year said that: “We were told 
by Syrian officials that the 
American authorities had as- 
sured them of the release of 
Lebanese prisoners from Is- 
rael after the freeing of the 
TWA (passengers). But they 
(the Americans) have foiled to 
meet their promises." 

Lebanese Shia Muslim pris- 
oners held at Atlit Prison were 
freed by the Israelis in the 
months that followed the re- 
lease of the TWA hostages, 
although Mr Rafsapjani did 
not mention this yesterday. 


Waite cautious over 
further releases 

From John England, Wiesbaden 


Hopes of early freedom for 
two more American hostages 
in Lebanon after the release of 
Dr David Jacobsen were 
dashed yesterday when Mr 
Terry Waite said that he was 
leaving West Germany but 
not returning to Beirut 
immediately. 

Mr Waite, the Archbishop 
of Canterbury's special envoy 
who on Monday flew to 
Wiesbaden with Dr Jacobsen, 
<aid on Tuesday that he 
expected a lead to the release 
of Mr Terry Anderson and Mr 
Tom Sutherland “within 24 
hours". 

Yesterday, however. Ire said

British R«si is getting there. The latest 
rail cuts are intended to put paid to the 
antxmm season's favourite excuse for 
the late arrival of commuter train 
services: “Leaves on the line”. The 
answer, to the consternation of some 
residents in the leafy suburbs, has a 
devastating simplicity. It is: cut down 
the trees. 

When the railway lumbexjachs were 
sent to topple these trees alo n gsid e 
Stoke d’Abernon recreation ground, 
Surrey, it enraged local conserva- 
tionists, but BR says that its difficulties 
with fallen leaves, which make engine

getting worse every year.

ficial explained, “but there is no 
question of onr going round indiscrimi- 
nately chopping down ancient 
woodlands.” 

The difficulties are worst on tire 
commuter routes of BR’s Network 
South-East where railways were bnOt 
on a more intimate scale than on tire 
main lines and where commuter trains 
frequently stop and start. “BR is very

New rules govern 
Lloyds 9 placing

minute views on pay, leaving 
no time for discussion. 

Mr Rodney Bkkersteffe, 
general secretary of the Na- 
tional Union of Public 
Employees, called the 
Chancellor’s move 
“outrageous.” 

Mr Lawson’s appeal came 
after the speed! by the Sec- 


a company ana industrywide 
basis. And pay settlements 
tended to be guided by labour 
market conditions in the 
booming South-east comer of 
the country. - 
The Chancellor said he 
feared that London wage rates 
applied outside the South-east 
could be pricing people out of 


placing since the Big Bang, 
PUronre Gordon, the stock- 
broker, is bringing Lloyds 
Chemists, a fast-growing 
chemist retailer to fee market. 

A total of 4£ million shares, 
27 per cent of fee company, 
were placed wife 100 institn- 
tions at a price of l05p. This 
values Mr ABeu UoyiTs com- 
pany, based in fee Midlands, 
at£l8.9 maiion. 

In fee post-Big Bang 
envnoament, new rules for 
market platings were used for 
fee fist time. Under the old 
system, 25 per cent of a new 
issue had to be offered to 
jobbers, for sale to fee public, 
to ensure that there was stock 
available hi fee market when 
«*— Bug started. Jobbers wen 
allowed to keep a maximum of 
10 per cent on their books to 
acute an after -m a rket 

The new rules r e q u ire mar- 
ket-makers to apply for stock 
for their books. Only four 
applied to make markets in 
JUeyds Chemists, all former 
jobbing companies, and they 
received about 7S per cent of 
fee shares on offer. 

These companies were fee 
market-making arms of 
County Securities, formerly 
Bisgood Bishop; BZW, fur- 


burg Securities, formerly 
Ackruyd ratA Smithers and 
Smith New Court 

None of the new market- 
makers, formed in response to 
the Big Bang, applied to 
market-makers in fee 

shares. 

One market-maker said his 
company did not apply be- 
cause the market-making 
function was still settling 
down. If it had been a bigger 
issne he said he may have 

given ft consideration. Because 

ft was a small issne feae was 
HP i^yr^Miiig i«Qiniaerrial rea» 
son to go for it, he said. 

In addition to offering stock 
to the market, the sponsoring 
broker must offer 25 pa cent 
of the shares befog placed to a 
second brota for distribution. 
In this case Greeawell Mon- 
tagu will (fistribate the shares. 

The sponsoring broker and 
the second broker may keep 
25 pa cent for theft market- 
making books. Panmrae Gor- 
don does not make markets,

By bnrBankmg Correspondent 

Mr Tory Thomas, erae- 

i. rive director for (tired fiaaa- 
1 dal services, described the 
new 1 interest foeflfty as a way 
of saving and m a n ag in g 
money. 

Itwasmmed at moresoplib- 
ticated customers, comprising 
about 18 pa cent of fee ndutt 
: population in Britain. These 
people, be said, were keen to 
earn interest on money they 
’■ woe not usmg and were aware 
of their monthly cash flow. 

■ ‘Most of onr card-boidars 
i come from the ABC1 social 
groups who wfll be most 
: fetoested ia fee new interest 
■. fodUty.” 

Until they n eeded it, the 
: money would be eaniiM daffy 
!' bOerest on their credit card 
accounts and there would be 
no charges. 

- Mr Thomas said this was 
fee first step in trandormos 
i fee way Britain’s credit eatd- 
' holders perceive and nsepha- ] 
tic money. So for credit cards i 
have been exctasfveJy Uenti- • 
: fied wife crefflt but in future- i 
they would be the baste of a i 
more sophisticated and flex- 
ible payments system. 

. Electronic fends transfer at s 
• point of sale, where a card is i 


used for slum purchases and 
debited to a customer’s bank 
account, would be a farther 
step ia this direction. 

Mr Thomas said the Co- 
operative was able to launch 
its new initiative because ft 
controlled its own Visa 

Interest payments would not 
damage tiie profitability of its 
credit end operation as fee 
cost would be no greater than 
feat inemred hi raising fee 
tame amount of money in the 
wholesale money markets. 

• Petrol pumps feat operate 
in tire same way as cash 
dispensers will be appearing 
on garage forecourts next year. 

BardaycanTa Pinpoint sys- 
tem will allow card-holders to 
skH their cards iato the pmnp, 
key in their personal identi- 
fication tram h ers and be 
charged automatically 

The Pinpoint system, which 
is already dishing out tickets 
at 12 "*ainfiue British Raff 
stations, will be installed at tip 
to 130 Shell petrol stations 
nationwide earfy next year. 

Pinpoint is available to 
Barchjcsrd, Yorkshire Bank 
and Mercantile Credit Visa 
cud-holders. 


' Wouldn't ft be marvellous if yon could choose how much you 
pay each month in mortgage repayment? 

It is possible. John Charcot's new flexible mortgage is quite 
unique. 

• It combines fee advantages of a fixed znterest/floating 

interest mortgage with the possibility of reducing the monthly 
payment without prior notice. 

Unlike other mortgages, which either have a fixed interest 
rate or one that floats up and down depending on the market our 
new mortgage gives you a choice. 

You may opt for a floating rate and then change your mortgage 
to a fixed rate at a month's notice. More interesting, you may opt 
to defer up to 30% of the payme n ts whenever you wish. 

This means yon can choose to pay less if fee interest rate rises. 
Or if your other commitments rise. 

If your other expenses come down, or your income climbs 
temporarily, you may opt to pay more. 

Our new mortgage is available to everyone who is looking to 
borrow between £15.001 and £250.000. up to 3.5 times a single 
income. 

It is available to purchase properties up to 100% of their 
value, although sums up to 70% can be borrowed without a status 
enquiry. 

In short, if yoor income is flexible, if your outgoings are 
flexible, if you just don't know enough about your future earnings, 
or even if you just don’t want to be tied down to a fixed monthly 
repayment then our new mortgage is for you.

Blue Arrow aims for 
third US acquisition 


From Michael Cbui,Neir York 


Blue Arrow, the fast-grow- 
ing services group, is out to 
acquire a New York employ- 
ment agency franchise as part 
of an assault on the lucrative 
US temporary employment 


industry. 
Hr To; 


Mr Tony Berry, chairman 
of the group, whose Brook 
Street Bureau and Hoggett 
Bowers subsidiaries already 
operate from New York, said 
he was close to finalizing the 
SIS million (£10.56 million) 
acquisition and expected to 
make an announcement soon. 

The business has 108 
branches nationwide and gen- 
erates $80 million of revenue. 
The exit p/e is expected to be 
about $12 million. 

It win be Blue Arrow’s third 
acquisition in the US in as 
many months. In September, 
the group bought Temporaries 
Inc, a Washington agency 
operating through 33 
branches, in a £30 million 

dwl 

Last month, it paid $7 



Mr ToHy Berry: looking ft 
rapid growth in the US 


million for Positions Inc, a 
Boston agency with turnover 
last year of $6 million. All- 
three buys win be financed by 
Blue Arrow’s recent £30 mil- 
lion rights issue. 

The ambitious Mr Beny is 
looking for rapid growth, with 
the main thrust of group 
profits coming from America 
over the next three years. “We 
hope to establish a national. 


permanent employment agen- 
cy business. No one in the US 
has done this," he sakL 

He is pluming to establish 
at feast 250 branches through- 
out the US by the end of next 
. year in addition to the 250 
operating in Britain. Thu . is 
just the next phase in Blue 
Arrow’s dramatic expansion 
programme which has seen frs 
stock market value grow from 
£3.1 million at the time it 
joined the USM in 1984 to 
more than £130 mifixon after 
its promotion to a full listing 
in July. 

Blue Arrow has : already 
forecast pretax profits of £&2 
milli on for the year to Octo- 
ber, just ended, and analysts 
are already looking fora figure 
of £14 million this year, 
excluding the £3 million ex- 
pected contribution from the 
US interests. : 

Mr Berry has applied for an 
ADR facility in New York and 
trading in the -shares is likely 
to start next year. 


Small firms’ future ‘brighter’ 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


Prospects for small firms in 
London and the South-east 
have brightened, but overall 
business conditions remain 
depressed, according to the 
third-quarter survey by the 
London Chamber of Com- 
merce. 

Small manufacturing firms, 
the survey said, had had 
increased orders from domes- 
tic and export markets and for 
these, as well as retail busi- 
nesses. there was “light at the 


end of the tunnel". 

But larger companies were 
not experiencing an upturn- 
“The significant decline in the 
growth of new orders and 
output of the second quarter 
was not repeated," the cham- 
ber said. Several large manu- 
facturers had had difficulties 
in these areas. 

Mr Dermot Glynn, chair- 
man of the chamber’s eco- 
nomic affairs committee, said 
business in the region was in 


difficulty. Firms had yet to 
recover from the big setback 
to growth in the second 
quarter. 

Rates of growth seemed to 
be weO below those reported 
for the same period of 1985 
but there had been an 
improvement in gnaB co- 
mpanies* performance and 
employment prospects had 
also improved slightly. Com- 
panies eded high, interest rates 
as their chief concern.

Stanhope 
tipped for 
big launch 
success 

By Judith Huntley 


Mr Stuart Upton’s Stan- 
hope Securities will. make its 
stock market debut before 


Christmas. It is likely to be a 
highly successful flotation. 


with conservative estimates 
patting the market capitaliza- 
tion at more than £100 
million. 

It will, however, be a diffi- 
cult company to value in that 
it is like Rosehaugh, Mr 
Upton’s development partner 
in some of the country’s 
biggest schemes in ball sectors 
of the market Rosehaugh, 
run by Mr Godfrey Bradman, 
w ho is regarded as a financial 
wizard, trades at a substantial 
pre mium to net asset value. 
The growth in its share price 
has been meteoric. 

The strength of sentiment 
for the company may well 
apply to Stanhope Securities, 
operating as it does by carving 
out a new market in formerly 
unacceptable locations, catch- 
ing demand at tbs right mo- 
ment and creating value by so 
doing. 

The strategy has paid off for 
him with Rosehaugh at the 
£500 million Broad gate 
scheme at Liverpool Street 
station in London, a joint 
venture with the British Rail 
Property Board. 

Rosehaugh Stanhope is also 
contender to develop tire 
Spiialfields Market site on the 
eastern edge of the City close 
to Broadgaie. 

The Upton and Bradman 
scheme, unveiled this week, 
conforms to the planning brief 
for the area, unlike that pro- 
duced by the Spitalfidds 
Development Group. There 
would be 750,000 sq ft of 
offices in the Rosehaugh Stan- 
hope development, a figure 
which Mr Upton says makes 
commercial sense. 

Mr Lrpton left Greycoat, 
where he was joint managing 
director with responsibility for 
development and construc- 
tion, in 1983. For the next 
year or so he kept a low 
profile, spending much of his 
time m the united States, 
examining architectural and 
construction methods which 
he has applied here. 

He then setupStockley, the 
property company developing 
tbe Z5 million sq ft Stoddey 
Park business park near 
Heathrow airport His part- 
ners in Stockley are Mr EHiott 
Bemerd, of Morgan Grenfell 
Laurie, and Mr Jacob Roth- 
schild. 

It remains to be seen what 
arrangements -Mr Upton will 
make with Stoddey once Stan- 
hope comes to the market, and 
bow much of Stanhope’s wrf 
its are likely to accrue from 
that source.

Autumn, or at least the autumn 
statement, has come upon us early 
this year. For the first time, a 
Chancellor is squeezing this, one of 
the two key events in the domestic 
economic calendar, ahead of 
Parliament's long weekend before the 
Queen’s Speech. 

That said, and notwithstanding its 
proximity U> Guy Fawkes’ night, 
today's statement is unlikely to con- 
tain fireworks. The Treasury has set 
its store, arid its reputation, on 
sticking to pre-arranged public expen- 
diture totals. 

Any slippage, bearing in mind that 
the Government is all but adrift from 
its monetary targets and has yet to 
escape convincingly from another 
sterling crisis, would go down like tbe 
proverbial lead balloon. And so the 
planning total has to be £144 billion, 
despite suggestions that it will be 
substantially higher. Unless the Chan- 
cellor is determined to undermine the 
good fortune that has come his way in 
recent days on sterling and the 
avoidance of even higher base rates, 
he will know that he cannot wear his 
election rosette that obviously. 

But the fiscal arithmetic, given an 
impending general election, is bound 


billion. This was always somewhat 
artificial, given that £3.2 billion of it 
was to disappear almost immediately 
to the local authorities. 

The public spending round has been 
conducted in conditions of almost 
eerie silence, suggesting that no 
ministers have been upset enough to 
give vent to their feelings. There were, 
too. expensive-soundmg spending 
promises at the Tory Conference. But 
as firmly put was Nigel Lawson's 
statement: “We will not engage in an 
irresponsible spending spree”. 

There will, therefore, be an in- 
evitable element of fudge in the 
spending figures and the totals avail- 
able today will tend to disguise this. 
The reserve is likely to be low, at little 
more than £2 billion. In addition, tbe 
Chief Secretary to the Treasury, John 
MacGregor, has put the ball into the 
department's court for seeking to off- 
set expenditure savings and this may 
result in heroic assumptions about 
underspending and other devices. 

The implication of the spending 
round is also likely to be rather higher 
increases in local authority rates and 
nationalized industry charges next 
year t han is ideal for continued low 
inflation. The Treasury’s reputation 
for inflation forecasting has been very 
good over the past years. Today’s 
forecast, which will show little upturn 
in the rate next year, will again stretch 
credibility to the limits. Some City 
economists are looking for a doubling 
of the rate to 6 per cent by the end of 
next year.

Grand Metropolitan, the drinks, ho- 
tels and food empire built by Maxwell 
Joseph, yesterday made the long- 
awaited change in direction, with its 
sights set on the 1990s. Widespread 
management changes include a new 
chief executive, splitting the roles of 
the chairman Sir Stanley Grinstead. 

Tbe man given the job of executing 
strategic policy changes is the leading 
candidate within the group — Allen 
Sheppard, aeed 53 — who has been 
responsible for the Watney-Truman 
brewing operations, Mecca (the book- 
makers now hived off) and the 
restaurant activities. As chief exec- 
utive he wfll oversee all Grand Met's 
activities. Day-to-day responsibility 
for drinks, brewing and retailing will 
fall to Anthony Tennant, aged 55. 

Other changes leave Sir Stanley fine 
to concentrate on strategy. The pres- 
sures on him have been considerable, 
and of late, mounting. Inevitably 
there have been rumours of bids as 
Alan Bond, among others, bought into 
the company. In truth. Sir Stanley, 
who is a private man, has not sat 
comfortably in the seats vacated by 
his extraordinary predecessor. He has 
been blamed by the company’s critics 


fora performance that has fallen short 
in several markets. 

Since his arrival on the board in 
1964 as joint managing director, he 
has, in tact, helped steer the company 
from sales of £5 million to £5.5 billion 
and a position of pre-eminence in a 
number of major consumer markets. 

The re-focusing of Grand Metro- 
politan is now taking place. The 
European brewing operations have 
been sold; the group has finally 
withdrawn from tobacco with the sale 
of the Liggett business in the United 
States; and Mecca has been floated off, 
signalling an important restructuring. 

These moves have been completed 
against a threatening background and 
the well expressed intentions of 
predators to cash in on what would be 
a highly desirable break-up exercise of 
the remaining businesses, some of 
which still struggle to achieve their full 
potential 

At 62, Sir Stanley still has a role to 
play in preparing the ground for tbe 
Grand Metropolitan of the next 
decade. The able and ambitious Allen 
Sheppard, who has been the chief 
critic with the board, will need all the 
help Sir Stanley and others can give 
him.

paying high energy bills. 

No wonder foe select 
committee was puzzled. But

infrastructure could well dear

A policy which redness pab-

was none before has great 
attractions. We have not beard

the privatization programme. 




Many eyebrow^?8p^ will be 
raised in surprise at a merchant 
bank suggesting itself as a suitable 
manager for the private investor. 

Stockbrokers, insurance 
brokers or your bank manager are 
the candidates who usually spring 
to mind. 

After all, you probably think 
merchant bankers are only interested 
in raising capital for large corpor- 
ations and the like. 

To compound the problem, you 
may also think that the Square Mile 
is full of aloof and impersonal 
stuffed shirts. 

As far as Singer and Friedlander 
is concerned this is pure fiction. 

Tbe facts are that if you have

profits. 
Avoid the 
pitfalls. 

The City is one of Britain's success stories. Now, a 
new spirit of competition has emerged following 
Big Bang, which allows foreign institutions to compete 
in Britain's financial markets for the first time. This we 
believe will expand the whole market for financial 
services in the UK. Already, banks, property developers* 
computer firms and other financial service companies 
are enjoying a significant increase in the demand for 
their services. 

A RECORD TO RELY ON 

No-one is better placed than County to select the 
winners in the new environment. We are part of the 
NafWesf Investment Bank; one of the most powerful 
new financial organisations to be formed under the 
new rules. Our fund manager therefore has an ideal 
position from which to evaluate the changes affecting 
the whole range of companies in the financial sector. 

The County Financial Trust already has an impressive 
record of success. £10,000 invested five years ago 
would now be worth £34,750! And we believe that 
there are now exciting new investment ^ purdiase 

opportunities. 

The trust aims to achieve long term 
capital growth by investing in an 
international spread of financial shares.

PRINTING TECHNOLOGY 


(( FOCI IS )1 


A SPECIAL REPORT 



Pa^Lowlaa 


the word 

ever faster 

The Adgraphics conference in Gleneagles 
is reviewing the revolutionary techniques 
now available in printing and advertising 



mil recently, 

* it used to be said that if 
= Johann Gutenberg, the father 
' of European printing, could be 
' transported from the 15th 

century to a contemporary 
press plant, he would, after a 
good orientation, probably 
feel moderately at home. 

Today, he would feel utterly 
alien because printing is at the 
very heart of the information 

■ revolution, as he would learn 
, at Pira, the national technical 

- centre for paper and board. 
. priming and packaging. The 
'• centre is about to link itself by 
‘ computer terminals to what 
: will eventually be the world's 

biggest database of its kind. 

• This will occur when it 

■ turns its library into a com- 

• puter-Iinked information 
1 centre. Books will still be seen 

on shelves, but no longer in a 
prominent position. This may 

- seem odd for an industry of 

■ which primer's ink has been 
' -the metaphorical lifeblood, 

■ but it is a physical expression 
of the wide-ranging views of 
Pirn's managing director, 

* Brian Blunden. 

Though trained as a primer, 
he sees printing as evolving 
into a new kind of knowledge 

- industry based on the concept 
of “tradable information*’. 

He explains: “The demand 
for information is growing 

- enormously. Take wider share 
ownership. That will generate 

- a need for literature to be sent 
out to shareholders on a scale 
that was undreamt of 10 years 

x ago. Even the entertainment 


business generates a huge 
appetite for information- 
rased material from marinate 
to magazines.** 

He also points out that the 
spread of literacy among an 
ever-growing world popula- 
tion has an effect purely in 
terms of numbers. 

Although he believes that 
prim and paper — made vastly 
more efficient and cost-eff- 
ective by the use of new 
technology — will continue to 
be vitally important as a 
means of conveying informa- 
tion, be is also convinced that 
primers must become in- 
volved in the alternative me- 
dia created by electronics and 
automation. 

This huge and 
irreversible 
process of change 

It is highly likely, for in- 
stance, that financial intelli- 
gence will be brought to 
shareholders through a home 
computer accessing a VDU 
rather than through a bulky 
document delivered by the 
postman. Printers will have to 
nod a way of playing a part in 
this process. 

“Our industry is in the 
middle of a huge and irrevers- 
ible process of change,” says 
Mr Biunden.*Tjke the Indus- 
trial Revolution, those who 
don't absorb it will be swept 
aside by it. It will inevitably 
make some skills redundant, 
but there is nothing new in 
that process in terms of the 
historical development of 
man and industry. 

“William Morris has a lot to 


answer for. He gave intellec- 
tual respectability to the no- 
tion that job satisfaction can 
be achieved only by the labori- 
ous manual intervention of 
the craftsman.” 

Mr Blunden sees promoting 
{Hide and interest in innova- 
tion as an important part of 
Pira'sjob. 

To a large extent this pro- 
cess is one of making mem- 
bers more aware of new 
techniques and materials and 
of their practical application. 
Pira runs a big programme of 
seminars and is also a consid- 
erable information-providing 
publisher in its own right 

Though the Japanese and 
the Germans are generally 
thought of as being in the 
forefront of creating inter- 
active systems quite a number 
are coming from this country. 
Quantel, for instance, has 
become a household name in 
the industry for its application 
of colour to computer-aided 
designed (CAD), and the Elec- 
tronic Colour Scanner devel- 
oped by Crosfieid, a 
subsidiary of De La Rue, is 
another of many UK systems 
which are regarded as setting a 
technological standard. 

One effect of the growth in 
the market has been a reduc- 
tion in the costs of much of the 
hardware and software. There 
are some who see the result of 
this — the growth in “desktop 
publishing” — as an un- 
welcome source of rivalry, but 
Mr Blunden does not share 
that view. 

He agrees, however, that it 
does pose questions about the 
future role of printers and that 
close attention will have to be 



given to planning and design- 
ing appropriate customer ser- 
vices. A case in point is the 
work now being done by some 
large companies in machine- 
aided translation and .voice 
recognition. 

Robotics, too . are an area of 
research involvement for Pira, 
as many printing finishing 
techniques aie expensive 
semi-skilled band operations, 
which ought eventually to 
lend themselves to 
automation. - 

It could lead to a re- 
evaluation of the: entire role of 
printers, certainly in areas 
such as book publishing. As 
editorial and production func- 
tions become more auto- 
mated. book publishers may 
find themselves under chal- 
lenge from the desktop bri- 
gade, but in the larger scale of 
operations Lhey may find they 
no longer have the technical or 
financial ability to keep up 
with change. 

That could lead to a sharper 
focus on marketing, leaving 
primers much more in what is 
at present the orthodox 
publishing role. A primary 
need will be to find ways of 
disseminating “tradable 
information” by a great vari- 
ety of means. 

Mr Blunden saysr“Rupert 
Murdoch and Robert Max- 
well, by their involvement 
across an enormous range of 
activities directly or indirectly 
related to the spread of 


information, have been quick- 
est of all to see the potential of 
this emeiging market” 

But although thinking about 
strategies for the future is an 
important part of Pira'sjob, a 
significant aspect of that is 
simply answering members' 
queries on the phone. Every 
one of Pira’s divisions — paper 
and board, printing and 
information technology, and 
packaging — has its own expert 
staff 

Consultancy on specific is- 
sues is another important and 
growing activity, either for 
individual companies or for 
groups of users. “That in itself 
may be a new dimension of 


‘narrow cast’ publishing,” Mr 
Blunden points out. “It's 
essentially a matter of produce 
ing information for small 

Belonging to Pira 
is not 

too expensive 

groups of users who are willing 
to band together to pay an 
appropriate price for it.” 

This runs side by side with a 
continuous programme of re- 
search and development, of 
the assessment of new equip- 
ment and processes and of 
assembling new standards for 


a global industry with a poten- 
tially bewildering variety of 
hardware and software. As 
typical examples. Mr Blunden 
cites the work Pira is doing on 
computerized colour match- 
ing and on the development of 
Standard Generalized Mark- 
up Language, which wilt pro- 
vide a uniform command 
structure for all documents. 

Considering the range of 
services Pira offers, it is 
remarkable that belonging to 
it is relatively inexpensive. 
The 1.000-sirong membership 
therefore includes some quite 
small businesses as well as the 
industry's giants. For in- 
stance. several of the high 


Paper chase: a 
reel of newsprint 
is transported 
automatically to 
the press room 
at News 
International’s 
Wapping plant 
and, inset, the 
old way: flat-bed 
machines that 
became obsolete 
in the 1950s 


street print franchises are 
members. 

Pira maintains close links 
with the international scene 
and is the headquarters of the 
International Electronic 
Publishing Research Centre, 
but it exists primarily to serve 
the UK market and its cusr 
tomers. But as the boundaries 
of information have burst out 
of national borders, it must 
only be a matter of time before 
Pirn's scope becomes more 
overtly global. That after all, 
was the experience of Guten- 
berg, back in the 1 5th century.

Designs off the top of a desk 


Away from the newspaper 
industry there have been ma- 
jor technological develop- 
ments. Much of this Is based 
around the acceptance of 
desktop computers, which are 
mainly IBM PCs or Apple 


Macintoshes, used in many 
environments to bring power- 
ful computing resources to 
bear at an acceptable cost 
This is apparent in text 
composition within the con- 
ventional trade typesetting or 


magazine operations. The ma- 
jor development is “desktop 
publishing”, the use of such 
computers, usually allied to a 
small near typographic quality 
laser printer, used for interna! 
company publications.

It is now perfectly feasible 
for an advertisement, particu- 
larly in monochoome. to be 
taken most of the way from 
conception through to produc- 
tion within an ag&xy. 

The technology is available 
to produce dieot presentations 
economically ami, with the 
exception of frigh-qnaJity 
illustrations and flfce range of 
esoteric typeface:*, to take 
these through to dhe make-op 
for final output • 

During the p am five years 
there has been a quotation in 
the way the preparation of 
colour masters for*prfnting has 
been carried oot 

It is now possible to produce 
effects in minute*; that pre- 
viously would have* taken days. 
Such techniques, however, are 
totally unecooouric in the 
hands of a creatine person as 
constant throughput is the 
only way to make money. 

One is now seeing the 
possibility of linking low-cost 
desktop computers into such 
devices to create laycmts and to 
transfer visuals to til* produc- 
tion process. 

Some agencies are now hav- 
ing colour TV monito rs linked 
by telephone lines to their 
production companies to per- 
mit them to approve work 
being carried oot on the colour 
systems, enabling decisions to 
be made rapidly. 

In terms of colour we are 
also seeing the potential for 
the use of video data in 
printing production. This will 
permit images to be taken 
directly from TV signals or 
high- resolution videotape. 

The potential here was for 
the desktop systems to he used 
within the agencies transfer- 
ring data to the printer, typog- 
rapher or newspaper to 
produce the finished artwork. 

Electronics are taking a 
stronger role in enabling print- 
ing presses to be run at much 
higher speeds and enabling 
the set-up or make-ready time 
to be reduced subs ta n tial ly. 
Laser printing is a technology 
likely to pose a challenge to 
the presses in the future. 

We are already seeing the 
potential of high-speed falser, 
printers that can print near 
typographic quality output on 
both sides of A4 sheets at 
speeds of around two pages a 
second, widely used in aliens 
such as mail shots. 

But it is also used for short- 
run or on-demand documen ta- 
tion. particularly in the 
electronics and aerospace in- 
dustries and a recent operation 
has started to prodace short- 
run paperback books. 

There has been more change 
in the past 25 years through 
technology, than in the past 
200 years and the pace is is 
unlikely to slow up-

How the other Big Bang 
rocked the print world 



,s V *•'.

■ " ^ 

Hands-on experience: Tra ining on the Hell Chrontaoom system at Data Colour, 

Fit for tomorrow’s words 


com- 

non misconception of the 
printing sector as a “hack- 
vard-looking, craft-based in- 
dustry, bedevilled by labour 
stations problems” is under- 
standable considering the ag- 
onized metamorphosis 
affecting national newspapers 
and the immediacy of its 
\ extensive media coverage. 

In reality, the newspapers 
occupy a unique position: the 
workforce is but 10 per cent of 
the industry’s totaL The 
remainder constitutes a sector 
which is in the top 10 UK 
manufacturing industries in 
terms of output, with a 
: workforce approaching 
200.000 people, and a 
contribution of about £3 bfl- 
lion to the national economy. 

•_ There can be no doubt that 
the biggest single impact on 
< - the so-called '’general'' print- 
; ing industry — defined as all 
: -;r printed matter except news- 
. papers — has been that of new 
. technology. Both the pace and 
' magnitude of change have 
b been unprecedented during 
the past 10 or 15 years and 
show no sign of slackening. 

In this respect, printing is in 
the same league as computing 
- and electronic engineering. It 
is precisely these hi-tech in- 
dustries which have generated 
the change, particularly in the 
pre-press area. 

The threat of change, which 
many UK printers have 
turned into opportunity, has 
not been easy to cope with. 
This, combined with the pres- 
sures of increasingly intense 
“competition in international 
markets, has concentrated 
minds on ways of reducing 
unit costs, improving 
productivity and increasing 
efficiency. 

And. although there have 
been some difficulties in the 
transition from the old to the 
new — from hot metal to 
computer-assisted photo- 
typesetting and from letter- 
press to litho printing, to give 
but two examples — the 


changes have come about with 
a remarkable degree of co- 
operation from the printing 
trade unions, the NGA and 
Sogat '82. 

Of course, there can be no 
substitute for standards of 
excellence if the UK printing 
industry is to expand into new 
markets in the 1990$ and 
regain those lost to our most 
successful competitors in 
West Germany, Japan and the 
United Stales. 

The British Printing In- 
dustries Federation, the trade 
association which represents 
two-thirds of aU companies in 
the general printing sector 
(nearly 3,000 companies), has 
a vital role to play in the future 
economic success of our 
industry. 

Through its Industry Train- 
ing Organization, which suc- 
ceeded the statutory Industrial 
Training Boards in 1982, the 
BP)F has played a leading pan 
in initiating new schemes of 
skills training «n<f manage- 


improving the professional- 
ism of management 
Many companies, both 
large and small, have em- 
barked on far-reaching pro- 
grammes of management and 
supervisory development, 
linking with colleges of print- 
ing education, polytechnics, 
independent management 
training centres and die print- 
ing industry’s research 
establishment (Pira). 

About 2,000 managers have 
benefited from the BPIFs 
own extensive courses pro- 
gramme, including many 
young managers from the 
YMP organization, which the 
federation sponsors. They 
have taken to heart the mes- 
sage embodied in the recent 
White Paper, Education and 
Training — Working To- 
gether, that “the same ma- 
chines and equipment are 
available to alL 
Success will go to those 
firms whose people can use 
them to the best advantage. 


There has been a quantum leap into a 
new area of training efficiency 


mem development 
. The pace of change has also 
been dramatic, reflecting, of 
course, the fundamental dif- 
ferences between the printing 
industry ofthe past and that of 
the present 

It is no coincidence that the 
rapidity of technological 
chang e has been matched by 
the quantum leap of progress 
into a new era of training 
efficiency. 

The “management of 
change” is a real problem 
which has had to be addressed 
effectively. New technology of 
itself is of little avail; it is a 
means to an end and that end 
is company profitability and 
the economic well-being ofthe 
printing industry and the UK 
economy. ■ 

The ability of management 
to exploit the advantages of 
greater efficiency brought 
about by new technology is the 
keynote, and this has been 
facilitated by the BPIFs own 
initiative, associated with the 
professional body, the In- 
stitute of Printing, aimed at 


And that requites initiative, 
innovation and competence 
across the whole spectrum of 
skills." 

Production skills training in 
the general printing sector has. 
like hew technology — and 
because of it — made gigantic 
strides. Adapting to change 
necessitates infinite adaptabil- 
ity. Only flexible and respon- 
sive new systems permit this. 

The rigidities of traditional 
systems with their “time- 
serving” apprenticeship of 
fixed-term, long duration 
suited the printing industry 
well in the relatively static 
environment of pre-1970 in- 
dustry. But they restricted 
recruitment to young school 
leavers; few adults were in- 
terested in a four-year 
apprenticeship and, in any 
case, they were forbidden 
entry on grounds of age. 

The training arrangements, 
common in most craft-based 
UK industries, made no men- 
tion of standards or the 
achievement of competence. 
Serving time was the criterion

of success. All madejthe grade, 
but nobody checked, and 
much time and effort were 
wasted. 

The new skills i training 
arrangements, achieved 
through free collective 
bargaining between ijie BPJF, 
NGA and Sogat, and regulated 
by Joint Training Councils 
established in 1983 and 1985 
respectively, have revolu- 
tionized the system. . 

Recognized by government 
and the Manpower .Services 
Commission as the best of 
their kind, the national prim- 
ing industry training agree- 
ments mean that certain 
standards have to be achieved. 

Every trainee, school-leaver 
or adult, has a log-book 
recording progress. Young 
school-leavers have Jp attend 
a printing education college 
on a day or Hock-release basts. 
Training is completed when 
the national standards of com- 
petence have been achieved 
for any given occupation. And 
adults have the opportunity to 
retrain throughout their work- 
ing life as jobs and technology 
change. 

From this year, these 
arrangements are being sup- 
ported by £2 million of MSC 
fending under the. Youth 
Training Scheme. j 

The new system, directly in 
tine with government and 
MSC training policy, was one 
ofthe first of its kind in UK 
industry. It has since proved 
to be the envy of our Overseas 
competitors, and gratifying 
indeed to know that ;in this 
area the UK printing industry 
has a distinct competitive ege. 

But competitiveness, by 
definition, means that we 
have to work hard to stay 
ahead of the field. There is still 
much to be done to consoli- 
date existing gains and make 
further progress. 

The federation's campaign 
to attract the £5 million 
needed to bring printing col- 
leges up to date with the new 
technology and establish cen- 
tres or excellence will 
continue.

Murdoch moved News Inter- 
national to Wapping. east 
Loudon, and Today was 
launched, they highlighted the 
revolution taking place in 
newspaper production. 

The technology has been 
available for some time but 
only in the past three years 
have techniques really 
changed in the UK. The next 
decade will show refinements 
rather than radical departures. 

Before be launched Today ; 
Eddy Shah promised not only 
to change the face of British 
journalism but to revolu- 
tionize {Hint advertising. 

In the euphoria of the pre- 
launch days, the agencies and 
their clients were led to be- 
lieve that everything was pos- 
sible — short lead times and 
total instant colour wife fee 
quality of Vogue, but at rock- 
bottom prices. 

It did not happen, but Mr 
Shah started the ball rolling. 
He made agencies and 
advertisers alike aware of fee 
changps there could be. He 
raised expectations and during 
fee next few years they will 
become reality. 

There were technological 
problems on Today and one of 
fee greatest disappointments 
was fee quality of the colour 
production. This might have 
been avoided had agencies 
known more about the tech- 
nical realities. 

“Part of the problem," said 
Cliff Bailey, director of cre- 
ative services for Saatchi & 


New processes 
give better quality 


Saatchi Compton Ltd, and 
chairman of Adgraphics 86 
organizing committee, “is that 
agencies expected to lake ads 
off the shelf. They expected to 
use an advertisement designed 
for a colour magazine in a 
daily newspaper. 

“We have reached fee maxi- 
mum potential more or less in 
colour standard reproduction. 
It is good quality but you have 
to accept the limitations of 
colour on newsprint” 

Mr Bailey sees little likeli- 
hood feat technology will 
improve colour reproduction. 
Improvement will be made 
only by fee designer paying 
more attention to the paper 
and its absorption and reflec- 
tive qualities. 

The creative directors will 
have to develop different uses 
of colour in advertisements 
for different kinds of news- 
papers and magazines. It will 
reflect fee availability of in- 
creased access to segmented 
markets. 

The new processes will also 
provide better quality black 
and white during fee next few 
yearn. 

Another advantage of fee 
new technology which will 
allow speedier, less costly 


reproduction Mill be fee abil- 
ity to store fee master copy of 
artwork on disc. This can then 
be used to transmit duplicates 
out to various printers. 

At present original copy has 
to be sent out to every 
destination. There will be new 
developments within the 
advertising agencies them- 
selves. They will increasingly 
use internal computer systems 
feat will permit fee design and 
transmission of advertise- 
ments to the page without the 
need to translate them first on 
to paper. 

Saatchi & Saatchi Compton 
creates advertisements for Silk 
Cut in London, which are then 
spun out worldwide — giving 
the agencies more control over 
companies and avoiding 
quirky local interpretations of 




fee Doily Mail have required 
three weeks’ notice before the 
production of a full colour 
advertisement; Today can 
take copy on a Monday and 
deliver the goods on 
Wednesday. 

Rodney Harris welcomes 
fee development but remains 
a little sceptical about fee 
importance of “instant" col- 
our to advertisers. 

Nevertheless, colour will be 
increasingly available and it 
will be cheaper. Today now 
prints 16 out of 48 pages in 
colour. At £7,000 for a fuB 
colour page in a premium 
position, despite its lower 
circulation, in proportion to 
fee circulation of its rivals, it 
is far cheaper. 

Even though commercial

Transmission of material 


of fee Press's share of the 
advertising material since its 
inception in 1955, fee quality 
papers in particular have re- 
tained their share of advertis- 
ing spending. 

Paul Bottomley, advertising 
manager for the European 
region of Rowntree Mack- 
intosh. said: “The future of 
print is not in question.’’ 

But fee use of colour in fee 
daily Press could further re- 
duce the women’s weekly 


fragmentation of the media, 
going in for increased brand 

segmentation.” 

The new technology allows 
for short print runs and the 
facility to produce different 
advertisements selected for 
every smaller target audience. 

The past two years have 
seen an increased willingness 
bv publishers to try out new 
ideas “The publishers are 
enthusiastic. They are sales- 
men. By contrast, the TV 
people are order takers,” said 
Mr Harris. 

Many of fee new ideas that 
publishers are keen to pro- 
mote are to a large extent 
gimmicky. Although they are 
not important in totality, they 
are useful in attracting the 
reader's attention. There will 
be a growth in stick-on inserts, 
such as the invitation to fly, 
Concorde created by Saatchi 
& Saatchi Compton for British 
Airways. 

The technique is not new, 
but today it can be done 
cheaply, efficiently and on 
time. 

“The biggest step forward," 
said Mr Harris, “is to do wife 
people. We will need and will 
have to see far closer liaison 
between media buyers, fee 
production people in fee agen- 
cies, fee media salespeople 
and fee printers." 

The need for and likelihood 
of this closer liaison is re- 
iterated by Mr Bailey. “We 
can push fee technology as far 
as you want — the technology 
is there, but the creative 
directors must push fee 
operators," he said. 

The agencies* creative 
teams must learn what fee 
new technologies can do and 
work with the process. 
According to David 


Craftsmen still do 
|f| the fine tuning 


Bottomley, feat goes for fee 
clients too. “We need to be 
fully aware of fee potential in 
print and need more 
feedback," be said. 

Training in the develop- 
ments of technology has al- 
ready started in the art schools 
and fee new generation of 
creative and agency staff 
should be able to make fee 
most of what the new pro- 
cesses have to offer. But there 
is also a need for better 
training for fee operators of 
the new electronic wizardry.

Once the developments in

is the craftsmen who still do 
fee fine tuning. Machine

fee human eye. Machines 
cannot anticipate what fee an 
director wants, but the op- 
erator can. 

The next decade is unlikely 
to bring radical changes, but 
the new technology should 
offer the advertising agencies 
fee opportunity of bringing 
livelier, more colourful, more 
topical and more specialist 
advertising, more cheaply to 
the consumer.

fOLOGY/3 


Colours at your fingertips 



arely has an industry 
suffered by association with another as 
much as "the commercial printing in- 
dustry has. simply by its use of the same 
basic technology as Fleet Street. 

Printing has become largely synony- 
mous with newspapers because of their 
impact and immediacy, yet the commer- 
cial side is vast by comparison, and 
highly diverse in its products. 

It also makes machinery-purchasing 
derisions based on commercial and 
marketing factors, rather than on consid- 
erations affected by politics and indus- 
trial. relations. 

When such equipment is seen to be 
successful and effective, others follow. 
Generally the unions are constructive in 
their approach to such changes, and the 
British commercial printing industry 
certainly does not lag behind other 
countries in its adoption of new 
technology. 

This is no recent phenomenon; when 
in 1970 the major European trade 
magazines undertook a survey of photo- 
composing machines — the latest tech- 
nology of the time - there were almost 
twice as many in the UK as in any other 
European country. 

The commercial printing industry 
encompasses the production of books, 
magazines, business forms, labels, post- 
ers. cartons, tin cans, flexible packaging, 
stationery, advertising literature and a 
variety of miscellaneous products for 
industry, commerce and personal use. In 
recent years, the equipment to produce 
these different products has become 
highly specialized. Printing presses for 
producing books are nothing like those 
for printing roll labels or those for 
business forms. 

Whatever the printing process used or 
item of print produced, however, the 
technical changes have been immense. 
The desktop publishing systems now 
being advertized for general commercial 
use are cheap versions of the more 
complex and specialized products which 
have been used by the printing industry 
for some time. 

Often these incorporate sophisticated 
software, whether this be for the produc- 
tion of complicated mathematical or 
chemical formulae, books with many 
foot-and-side-notes with a multitude of 
cross references and indexing, or a parts 
manual with exploded diagrams and 
photographs. All such jobs can now be 
created electronically from information 
already held in computers dr sent down a 
telephone wire or by satellite, and by 
digital scanning of illustrations. 

Typefaces are no longer created in 
metal or even by shining light through a 
negative of the character required and 
capturing the image on photographic 
film or paper. 

The typesetter of today is digital — that 


is, the information about the shape of a 
letter is held as a series of electronic 
signals in a computer. The output may 
be in the form of a low-resolution (300 
dots per incb) laser printer commonly 
seen in today's office, or a high- 
resolution (2,000 dots per inch upwards) 
photosetter producing complete pages of 
text with Illustrations. 

The low-resolution version may of 
course be employed by a printer or 
typesetter for proofing purposes, and 
sent to the customer by the increasingly 
used facsimile transmitter. 

Similarly, complete colour pages can 
be created on a television screen which 
accurately portrays the illustrations as 
they will be printed. Colour transpar- 
encies or photographs can be scanned 
electronically, converting the signals into 
components reflecting the desired 
strengths of the four printing ink colours 
of yellow, cyan, magenta and black. 

Much modern colour-magazine 
advertising relies on the feet that such 
systems are capable of electronic merg- 
ing of different pictures, as evidenced by 
cars floating in mid-air or feet with 10 
toes. 

Colours of scenes or individual objects 


data processing and associated electronic 
equipment falls. 

Where machine minders used to 
adjust the flow of ink on to a particular 
area of foe sheet or web of paper by 
manually turning a key, they now set up 
the machine electronically by scanning 
the printing image 6n the plate, and 
make running adjustments^ to colour 
remotely. “Register’', or exact- Relative 
positioning ofthe four printing-ink 
colours, is now achieved electronically 
on web presses by foe reading of signals 
on the edge of the paper web. 

‘ In the finishing department, too, 
operations such as paper cutting, folding 
and binding are electronically assisted. 
One example is in the guillotine; where 
previously an operator used to reposition 
the block of paper between foe individ- 
ually-made cuts, be now programmes 
into the machine's computer all the 
operations connected with a job. The 
machine then .repositions foe paper 
between the automatic cuts, producing 
finished labels or similar products, 
possibly for automatic wrapping. -

in them can be changed at random — a 
red hat can become a green one to reflect 
a concept or house style. Pictures can 
also be created electronically on the 
television screen by painting with 
‘'brushes" of different colours and 
thicknesses. 


When the desired picture has been 
created on the screen, it can be 
transmitted over a telephone line to the 
advertising agency or client who, using a 
similar screen, can himself make changes 
to the colours or composition. 

The company doing black-and-white 
typesetting or colour separation and page 
make-up will often have only a few 
employees, yet wifl have equipment 
costing hundreds of thousands of 
pounds. Such fragmenting into small 
specialized units is common in the trade 
today, permitting large-volume usage of 
such expensive electronic equipment 

The alternative, of using more people 
and manual methods, is becoming 
increasingly 'unattractive as the cost of 


ment and techniques, many of which 
have changed dramatically in recent 
years. 

One example is the production of 
cartons, where computer-aided design 
equipment is used to lay out complex 
carton shapes to maximum advantage 
on a sheet of board After printing, and 
before folding and gluing into a rec- 
ognizable carton, the sheet has to be “cat 
and creased”, that is, cut through to 
remove waste areas and creased 

Instead of manually cutting the 
wooden forme to take the lengths of steel 
knife which will cut the board the forme 
is now cut using a laser, operated 
according to the CAD information. . 

Often the products themselves have 
changed or are completely new. Cheques, 
credit cards, magnetic railway tickets, 
instant lottery tickets and complex 
mailers are just a few.

[Judgment November 5] 

Local authorities who decided

employees as a gesture of sup- 
port for the employees bad 
taken into account an irrelevant

Act 1964. Their decision was 

accordingly unlawful.

view proceedings, quashed 
decisions by F-aK"g, Hammer- 
smith and Fulham, and Camden

tween May and September 
1986, to ban from public librar- 
ies within their areas news-

The action taken by tire 
councils was to ban from their 
libraries all copies of the news-, 
papers and periodicals men- 
tioned. AH had previously been 
by the libraries; save 
that the News of the Wo rld ha d 
never been available at libraries 
in Camden. 

Over 30 Socialist controlled 
local authorities in England, 
Scotland and Wales had taken 
ofniiiw action, although some 
had since withdrawn the ban. 

Fi g ht applications for judi cial 
review by the applicants were 
outstanding. .■ 

The applicants maintained 
that each of the councils, by 
Hanning foe publications from, 
their libraries, had a bu sed foe 
powers given to them as library 
authorities under the Public 
Libraries and Museums A a 
1964 and were in breach of the 
duty in section 7(1) to provide a 
comprehensive and efficient li- 
brary service to all persons 
de a l ing to use thereof. 

It was submitted that in 
m aking the decisions com- 
plained of regard was had to 
improper and irrelevant consid- 
erations of a political or analo- 
gous nature and were wholly 
alien to what was permissible to 
contemplate in foe use of foe 
relevant power and foe proper 
discharge of foe statutory duty. 

The applicants accordingl y 
sought: declarations that foe 
decisions were ultra vires and 
void, certiorari to quash each 
decision and injunctions 
restraining foe councils from 
taking further steps to im- 
plement or enforce the de- 
cisions. 

The councils denied any 
abuse of power or breach of 
section 7(1) and submitted that 
the applicants' remedy by in foe 
use by the Minister for foe Arts 
of his power under section 10 of 
the Act to investigate any al- 
leged failure to cany out duties 
under the Act 

Before foe ban The Times was 
clearly regarded by tire councils 
as a major daily paper which 
ought to be in their libraries. 

There was no doubt that, 
when asked by the applicants to 
use his powers under section 10, 
the minister showed a dis- 
inclination to do so and might 
never have done so if the 
applications for judicial review 
had not been made. 

It was equally dear that the 
councils* reason for imposing 
the ban was solely that it could 
be used as a weapon in aid of the 
ritymrerei print workers in their 
actions in the industrial dispute 
to damage the other side, with 
the addiuonal reason in the case 
of Camden that some of those 
workers li ved in their borough. 

In the course of the hearing, 
counsel conceded as much and 
that the councils were 
acting in concert in imposing 
the ban. It was also beyond 
dispute foal foe ban was only for 
the duration of foe dispute; and 
that when foe dispute was over, 
foe banned publications would 
again be available to the public 
in the councils’ libraries. 

How could such a ban be 
consistent with the councils’ 
dominant duty under section 
7(1) and foe subordinate duty 
under section 7(2)? 

It was submitted for foe 
councils that foe reasons for the 
ban were not inconsistent with 
their statutory duty; and that 
within their discretion as to 
what to provide in libraries, they 
were entitled to have regard to 
the conduct of a publisher even 
though political affiliation 
played a significant part in the . 
view formed of that conduct and 
of foe publisher. 


ere had been dismissed in what 

was regarded as a shameful way. 

It was sub nutted that foe 
councils would be entitled to 
take into account foe foci that 

the author of a book was known 
to fhvour apartheid in S outh 
Afiio, or had made it known 
. that royalties from his ' book 
were to. be paid to the IRA. or 
was an enemy of foe stme, tn 
deciding whether such books 

should be in their libraries. 

It was said that a reason die- 
not become irrelevant merely by 
applying a political label to it 
local govenmenl was a political 
arena into which foe minister 

might enter, but the courts could 

not descesd-

Education Aiahonty. Ex parte 
Westminster City Council 
(11986] 1 WLR 28, 49). his 
Lordship accepted that foe court 
could not intervene in political 
disputes. 

But his Lordship disagreed 
with any suggestion that those 
cases lent support for foe view 
that a library decision might be 
lawful when it was taken on 
purely political grounds. 

A unary decision might be 
lawful within section 7{l)_if foe 
dominant purpose bringing it 
about was not unlawful, even 
though inspired to some extent 
by political motive. 

But in the present case there 
was but the one purpose. That 
purpose was set by a political 
attitude to a so-called workers' 
struggle against a tyrannical 
employer with foe object of 
punishing the employer. 

Was such a decision lawful, or 
an abuse of power? If it was foe 
fetter, it was conceded that 
judicial review should be avail- 
able to foe applicants. 

Counsel for foe applicants 
pointed out that the case was the 
first under foe Act He said that 

the case concerned what persons 
might read in public libraries 
and censorship of reading ma- 
terial by a library authority 
taking sides in mi industrial 
dispute and for no other reason. 

It was submitted that a 
constitutional issue was in- 
volved: freedom of ex p res sion 
:md foe rigtt to receive informa- 
tion and ideas without arbitrary 
interference. A library authority 
was the servant of the users and 
could not use its statutory power 
as a weapon in an industrial 
dispute. 

Counsel conceded that in 
extreme cases personal objec- 
tions to authors could be a valid 
library-related objection, but 
that the present case was a 
glaring example of abuse of 
power in which many local 
authorities were acting in con- 
cert. 

The speeches in Wheeler v 
Leicester City Council (11985] 
AC 1054, 1078-1080) were 
instructive as to foe circum- 
stances in winch courts would 
interfere with decisions of local 
authorities. 

Thus it was argued foal the 
councils' conduct was dearly 
illegal irrational and unfair to 
members of the public. 

Counsel for foe applicants 
also relied on Padfidd v Min- 
ister of Agriculture, Fisheries 
and Food ((1968] AC 997), 
where it was held foal a court 
was entitled to interfere if a 
statutory discretion was used to 
frustrate the policy of foe 
conferring Acl 

Lord Upjohn said (at pl058) 
tfiat it would be unlawful behav- 
iour, inter alia, to take into 
account some wholly irrelevant 


present ease: “A pfenning 

authority are nor ai liberty to use 
focir powers lor an ulterior 

bon imposed b> foe 
councils was for an ulterior 
object. If was inspired by potm- 
calviews which moved them to 
use their statutory powers to 
interfere in an industrial dis- 
pute. 

Parliament did not contem- 
plate such action to be within 
the power conferred by section 
7. and so rational local 
authority would have though! 
that such a ban was. open to it m 
discharge of its duty to service 
libraries. 

It had been clearly dem- 
onstrated that foe councils had 
taken into account an irrelevant 
consideration. 

It was also argued that the 
effect of foe ban was to render 
what . was probably a library 
service comphing with section 7 
into something which fell short 
of a comprehensive and efficient 
service. 

It .would not be right to say 

that the p ro v i s i on of such a 
service depended on keeping the 
publications in foe hbrancs, but 
before the ban each council had 
decided that foe service would 
not reach the required standard 
unless foe banned publications 
were part of it. 

There were powerful indica- 
tions that foe ban involved a 
breach of section 7. but the 
applicants did not have to 
a breach if their reli- 
ance on abuse of power was 
sufficient for relief 

Finally, reiving on R v Chid 
Constable qt Merseyside. Ex 
parte Colmey ((1986] l OB 
424), it was submitted for the 
councils that foe applicants 
should be denied relief because 
section !0 afforded them ade- 
quate protection by giving the 
Minister for the Arts extensive 
powers of intervention and 
there were no exceptional 
ciremnstances. 

. : U was agreed .foot foe exis- 
tence of an alternative statutory

It was absurd for the councils 
to pretend, as they had, that in 
imposing and maintaining the 
ham they had been within foe 
spirit or the fetter of the law. 
They had defiberatley flouted it 
when they knew that sensible 
and . responsible officials 
strongly advised them that they 
were proceeding to act unlaw- 
fully. 

Camden's additional reason 
was a transparent piece of 
camouflage which did nothing 
to diminish the seriousness cl 
foe conduct. 

It deliberately set out to 
punish foe applicants. It had 
readily and easily available a 
weapon which it proceeded 
wilfully to use regardless of the 
library requirements of foe pub- 
lic which should have been but 
was not then its concern. 

It could not be other than to 
all sensible and right-minded 
people alarming to see such 
irresponsible behaviour by per- 
sons elected to serve their 
interests according to dearly 
stated law and in defiance of 
impeccably correct advice. 

There coukl hardly be a 
dearer manifestation of an 
abuse of power foe remedy for 
which it was for foe court and 
not the minister to provide. 

Mr Justice Kennedy agreed.

Title under another entry not protected 


A. J. Dunning & Sons 
(Shop&tters) Ltd v Sykes & 
Son (Poole) Ltd 
Before Sir John Donaldson, 
Master of the Roils, Lord Justice 
Dillon and Lord Justice Croom- 
Jobnson 

(Judgment October 30] 

On a conveyance of registered 
land, an implied covenant of 
good title took effect subject to 
any other interest in foe land 
appearing or protected on the 
register under that title number, 
but not to any interest in land 
which was the subject matter of 
a different tide number. 

The Court of Appeal so held

tiffc, A. J. Dunning & Sons 
(Shopfi tiers) Ltd, from Mr Don- 
ald Ranee, QC sitting as a 
deputy judge of the Chancery 
Division who, on July 26, 1985, 
decided that the defendants, 
Sykes & Son (Poole) Ltd, had 
not been in br e a c h of an implied 
covenant of good title to land 
purportedly conveyed by them 
to foe plaiflti£& 

Mr Peter Rawson for the 
plaintiffs; Mr Nicholas Warren 
for the defendants. 


as 


LORD JUSTICE DILLON 
said that foe defendants were 
the registered proprietors of 
land with absolute title under 
title number P7608. They sold 
parts of foe land, each part sold 
being given a new title number. 

After one such sale, the land 
removed was incorrectly fenced 
off leaving part of the land soW 
referred to in the proceedings 
u foe “yellow tendT — with that 
which was still part of P7608. ~ 

As a result of subsequent 
dealings in foe land, foe plain- 
tiffs became the purchasers of a 
part of P7608 — referred to as 
' e “red land" — which was next 
and which, on a plan attached 
_ foe Land Registry transfer, 
purported to include, the yellow 
land (to which the defendants 
id no title). 

By clause 2 ofthe transfer the 
defendants as beneficial owners 
transferred to the plaintifis “all 
that freehold property edged 
with red on the plan annexed 
hereto being . . . part of foe 
property registered at HM Land 
Registry- under title number 
P7o08.” 

The plaintiffs obtained plan- 
ning permission and built oo foe 


to 


land they thought was theirs an 
industrial buffeting one comer of 
which rested on the yellow land. 
When they came to register their 
title' under the transfer they 
discovered they had no title to 
the yellow land and had to 
purchase it from its true owners. 

The plaintiffs therefore 
claimed damages against foe 
defendants for breach of cov- 
enants for title which they said 
were to be implied in the 
transfer by virtue of section 76 
of and Schedule 2 to the Law of 
Property Act 1925. section 38(2) 
of the Land Registration Act 
1925, and rules 76 and 77 of the 
Land Registration Rules (S R Sc 
O 1925 No 1093 (L 28)). 

Rule 77 of foe 1925 Rules 
provided that “(1) Any cov- 
enant implied by virtue of 
section 76 of foe Law of 
Property Act 1925. in a dis- 
position of registered land shall 
take effect as though the dis- 
position was expressly made 
subject to — (a) ail charges and 
other interest appearing or 
protected on the register . . .” 

The first question was 
whether as a matter of construc- 
tion .the subject matter ex- 

!Tof*foe traosfer^mduded the 
yellow land. 

His Lordship agreed with the 
judge that it did. 

The effective description of 
the subject matter expressed to 
be conveyed' was the red edging 
on foe plan' attached to- the 
transfer;, foe reference to the 
prop e rty comprised in the tide 
number was subordinate, be- 
lieved to be accurate, but to be 
rgozied if demonstrably wrong. 

Toe function of rules 76 and 
77 was, under section 38(2) of 
the Land Registration Act 1925. 
to prescribe the effect in reg- 
istered conveyances of the cov- 
enants implied by virtue of 
section 76 of foe Law of 
Property Act 1925. . 

The first stage was that under 
rule 76a person might introduce 
the relevant implied covenants 
by being expressed in a. reg- 
istered disposition to transfer as 
“beneficial owner". There- un- 
questionably had been a reg- 
istered disposition in the present 
case so that the covenants of 
good title set out is Schedule 2 
to the Law of Property Act 1925 
were to be read into the transfer. 

Moreover, the covenants did 


not merely relate to so much of 
foe land as the defendants were 
entitled to transfer but to foe 
whole of the subject matter 
expressed to be conveyed. 

The covenants implied by 
section 76 were introduced by 
rule 76 into foe registered 
disposition. The scope of foe 
covenants thus introduced was 
limited by rule 77(IX the pri- 
mary object of which was to 
amplify the form of transfers in 
registered conveyancing by 
m a ltin g it unnecessary to refer 
expressly to, inter alia, charges 
and other interests appearing or 
protected on foe register. 

The crucial question was what 
was meant by “the register”. It 
was probable that the draftsman 
only had in mind the simple 
case where a registered propri- 
etor transferred land of which be 
was the registered proprietor, 
and the only relevant register 
was the register of foe registered 

proprietor’s own title. 

His Lordship found it hard to 
suppose that the draftsman ever 
envisaged that solicitors would 
so arrange matters that a reg- 
istered proprietor would pur- 
port to include in one transfer 
land of which he was the 
registered proprietor and also 
land to which he bad no title and 
of which someone else was foe 
registered proprietor under a 
different title number. 

The scheme of foe ismtf 
Registry was that, although 
there was a global register of all 
registered titles, there was also a 
separate register for each in- 
dividual title, comprising a 
property register, a proprietor- 
ship register and a cha rge 
register for that individual tiueT 

On a sale, tbe vendor fur- 
nished foe purchaser with an 
authority to inspect -foe 
register and if required with a 
copy of the subsisting entries in 
the regisreraod of any filed p lan 

In that context, the register 
had to mean tbe register of the 
land of which foe vendor was 
the registered proprietor, since 
undemiie 287 ofthe 1925 Rules 
only foe proprietor of land or of 
any charge or incumbrance 
thereon could authorize anyone 
to inspect any entry in the 
register relating to that land. 

The p laintiffs could therefore 
inspect two things only; first, 
with the defendants’ authority, 
.foe entries on foe register of title 


number P7608; and second', 
under rule 288, as contracting 
purchasers of adjoining land, 
foe property register and filed 
plan only of foe title which 
included foe yellow and other 
adjoining land. 

Tbe reference in rule 77(l)ta) 
to charges and other interests 
appearing or protected on foe 
register could not extend to 
matters tbe subject of entries 
which the plaintiffs as purchas- 
ers could not have inspected. 

Therefore the “register” re- 
ferred to in rule 77 could not 
mean foe global register of all 
registered land, but referred 
only to the register of the 
individual title, that is. in the 
context of tbe present case the 
title number P7608 of which foe 
defendants were foe registered 
proprietors. 

It was that proprietorship 
alone under which foe scheme 
of the Act empowered them to 
make the disposition referred to 
in rule 77 which his Lordship 
took to be foe same as the 
registered disposition referred to 
in rule 76. 

Although there was a special 
power under rule 288 to inspect 
foe property register and filed 
plan of the adjoining land, the 
emphasis of foe Act and Rules 
as between vendor and. pur- 
chaser was so strongly on 
inspection merely of foe register J 
of the title of which the vendor 
was the registered proprietor 
that foe reference to “foe 
register'" in rale 77(1 Xa> ought 
to be sunilarfy so limited. 

His Lordship therefore dis- 
agreed with the judge on the 
point on which he had decided 
the action against the plaintiffs. 
The judge s order should be set 
aside and an inquiry as to 
damages ordered. 

Lord Justice Croom-Johnson

TIMES 



GENERAL APPOINTMENTS 


I 


• ndustry Year I9S6 is nearly 
over. Industrialists and oth- 
ers keen to help education to 
play its pan in the success of 
- the year may rest assured 
that it is not yet too late to do so 
Many of us would dearly like to 
spread the industrial and business 
gospel more widely and eff- 
ectively. We know that too many 
of our high-flyers go into wealth- 
creating rather than wealtb- 
circula ting jobs. 

But we are not the sole masters 
of our professional destiny and we 
urgently need more of your help — 
in terms of influence as well as 
cash. Here are 12 possible action 
points: 

-• Spread the message at every 
opportunity among your 
aware industrial and business 
colleagues, especially if they them- 
selves have children of school age. 
In career choice, as in so many 
other things, teacher influence is 
very small compared with pa- 
rental advice - even in a boarding 
school. Demand the rhanff (0 
address parents' meetings at local 
schools. 

Take the argument into the 
Rotary clubs, local Law Society 
lunches and anywhere you can 
find a high proportion of repre- 
sentatives of those professions 
which have traditionally snapped 
up the high-flyers whom industry 
so desperately needs. A high 
proportion of high-flying teen- 
agers follow their parents into 
family law. insurance, and 


accountancy firms eventually, 
even if they don't do so at once. 
Encourage the broader view. 

• Seek to extend your influence 
over Department of Education 
and Science civil servants, univer- 
sity teachers and exam board 
officials. While the exam hurdles 
are excessively theoretical, our 
hands as teachers are severely tied. 
The new GCSE syllabuses, good 
though their evidence-based ap- 
proach is, show signs of making 
such big demands on the time of 
both teachers and pupils that non- 
exam studies and work experience 
may be severely squeezed out. 

• The GCSE proposal for merit 
and distinction certificates involv- 
ing a compulsory craft-design- 
technology component, and the 
scheme for AS levels which would 
encourage the study of a greater 
range of subjects at 18-plus ma y 
yet be dropped because of a lade of 
resources, yet both might increase 
a candidate's chance of avoiding 
narrow academic sp ecializatio n 
Encourage the universities to be 
more flexible over formal entry 
requirements. 

• Examine current O and A level 
courses in business studies and see 
how much of a consensus can be 
achieved from your end about 
their ideal content One hundred 
independent schools alone now 
offer Business Studies A level; 
while half the industrial employ- 
ers in the UK are demanding more 
business studies in schools, and 
the other half are idling us to stick 


The 1 2 ways in which 
industrialists can 
help education to 
play its part are 
outlined by 
Nigel Richardson 



to traditional economics so that 
pupils do not arrive on factory 
doorsteps full of half-baked jar- 
gon. you are providing far too easy 
an alibi for those who find the 
status quo more comfortable than 
radical curriculum change. Could 
you offer more facilities for A level 
business studies project work? 

• Take an interest in those 
organizations which specialize in 
careers advice for teenagers. Do 
their questionnaires present in- 
dustry and business in a 
favourable light,, or is there a 
“hidden bias** against them? Are 
their industry questions suf- 
ficiently specific? 

• Publicize your support for GAP 
years — the break between school 
and university — which involve 
industrial experience via such 
schemes as Index. Alternatively, 
encourage GAP projects which 
include physically demanding ex- 
pedition work or significant 


community service. Being part ol 
a mountaineering team or tending 
the dying in Mother Teresa’s 
hospitals in Calcutta can bring out 
dramatic leadership qualities 
which have previously lain dor- 
mant The Duke of Edinburgh’s 
Award scheme can be similarly 
c hallenging. Conventional forms 
of national service would do for 
less for the high-flyer. 

• Seek to establish contacts with 
primary and prep school beads. 
Catch them young — both the 
Jesuits and Miss Jean Brodie knew 
that significant influences on chil- 
dren were best implanted very 
early on. 

• Argue your case much more in 
The Times Educational Supple- 
ment and the journals of the 
teaching unions. 

• Consider whether your firm 
needs an education or schools 
liaison officer. I f it already has 
one, are his budget and status 


sufficient? The courses they run 
for teachers can be invaluable — 
Unilever taught me more about 
industries and careers in 36 hours 
m a Cambridge college than I 
could have learned from a dozen 
conventional factory visits. I have 
found myself over several years 
able to use their material — and 
promote their name - with a 
sizeable number of sixth-formers. 

• Do all you can to support 
organizations which provide case 
studies and business games 
courses for teachers. The CRAC 
Insight course is superb — m three 
days teachers can amass enough 
material and ideas to run a one- 
term or two-term sixth-form gen- 
eral studies course even with no 
previous business experience. See 
whether your own firm can devise 
or sponsor a new game — the 
Metal Box business game and the 
Bradford Production parir have 
been notable leaders in the field. 

• Send your brightest young 
recruits into schools on con- 
ferences organized by the educa- 
tion branch of the Industrial 
Society. Their new Managing 
Decisions conferences are specifi- 
cally designed for high-flying 
sixth-formers; they need the 
personnel to match. The 1SCO 
Management Training Centre at 
Bourn ville needs more sponsoring 
companies. 

• Support schools and univer- 
sities which are seeking to set up 
industrial fellowship schemes — 
especially those in rural areas 


where factory contacts are limited. 
One Jeading girls* school has 
recently appointed a fuDrtime 
careen officer straight from in- 
dustry; give other schools the 
encouragement and the practical 
help to do the same. • 

• Give more teachers the chance 
of secondment into industry for a 
term or even a year. Opportunities 
for arts graduates are specially 
limited. 

One other idea. Has the time 
perhaps come for a full-scale 
liaison service organized by the 
Confederation of British Industry, 
the Institute of Marketing or a 
group of similar national 
organizations, and aimed specifi- 
cally at high-flying sixth-formers? 

M uch of the teaching 
material and most 
of the national 
projects have so for 
been pitched lower 
down the age and ability range. 
The armed services all have 
liaison officers who visit our 
schools termly and who “nurse" 
potential candidates along over a 
significant period. 

Should not industry and com- 
merce do the same and should not 
they also provide an equivalent to 
die excellent Services presentation 
teams, carrying their message all 
over the country? Leaving it until 
the university “milk round" is 
often far too late; industry may 
not be able to offer Big Bang City- 
style salaries at 21, but in this it 


November 6, 1986 


could at least tap the potential 
market first. 

Whether . leadership can be 
“taught’’ rather thm~ s fcaughf*’ln 
the teenage years is a more 
complicated issue than it seems at 
first sight- What is certainly true is 
that teachers can attempt the task 
only if they have the right 
opportunities, experience and 
materials themselves. Resources 
and the right teachers to use them 
are desperately scarce. 

Yes. our experience is some- 
times woefully limited — school to 
university and back again. But 
don't assume tint we all entered 
leaching merely as a career-long 
escape route from the harsh 
industrial realities. Those of us 
who trained as teachers IS years 
ago, at a time when there was- an 
assumption of permanent eco-' 
nomic growth, were taught to 
believe that it would be easy to 
train for a' completely new career 
at least once, possibly twice, in a 
lifetime. 

We expected to be able to apply 
our teaching skills in other fields 
later on, ana foresaw others who 
would want to make the pro- 
fessional journey the other way. 
That vision now looks hopelessly 
optimistic. Long Live Industry 
Year 1986. We in schools need 
your help long term if we are to 
maximize its impact

friendliness need to be 
kept up, right through 
id the end of the flight- And, when 
our passengers leave the plane, we want 
fh<*m to take good memories with them — 
of us, and of you. 

tfyon’w gpc the necessary personal 
dulls, and if you really enjoy working with 
people and, dealing with their requests — 
however tontine or extraordinary — it’s a 
career that’s every bit as fulfilling and 
exciting as it's challenging. 


At the moment, we’re looking

summer — there’ll be short term contracts 
16 months] available, starting next Spring

on our range of holiday and chartered 
flights co a wide variety of destinations. 
YouH be busy serving food and drinks, 
duty-free goods, and demonstrating 
emergency procedures. And, most 
importantly, you’ll be gening the pleasure 
of knowing you’re helping our passengers 


feel gpod throughout their flight. 

You should be at least 5' 2" tall, and 
an ability to converse in a foreign language 
would be extremely useful- We provide a

ven ihe man's name, Abdul 
Qadir, has an evocative ring 
in English ears: it has 
j overtones of Eastern mys- 
■ icry and magic. As the best 
wrist-spinner in the world, Qadir 
relishes his plots and devious work as 
much as any villain in a pantomime. 

West Indies were left looking like 
novices in the first Test at Faisalabad 
when Qadir took six for 16 and they 
were bowled out for 53. 

Pakistan have won more than one 
Test in the past eight years through 

the baffling mixture of leg-breaks and 
goodies which Qadir can produce 
from his bag of tricks. Never before, 
though, has his bowling method — 
considered obsolete in most other 
countries - been rewarded by such a 
crushing victory. 

Onlv a handful of wnsl-spmners 
remain in cricket, most of them in 
India or Pakistan, and Qadir alone 
I commands a regular place m his 
country's Test team. Elsewhere they 
are considered a luxury since amtam- 
' meni was coined as a bowling tatme. 

And QOdir himself joined the virtu- 
ally extinct breed only by chance. 

He showed an aptitude for cricket 
from the start and was playing 
Alongside grown men from an age 
when in England he would still have 
been at prep schooL He was about 12

Average 3X54. Best bowling 7 for

times. Ten wickets in a mate’ twice.

Foil name: Abdul Qadir Khan; born 
Lahore 15 September. 1955.

open both the batting and the bowling 
for his college and club sides in 
Lahore when his cricket dramatically 

changed direction. rw;- 

To conserve energy, Qadir 
switched to spin in the nets and his 
team-mates were startled to findthe 
amount of turn he could get- They 
encouraged him to persevere with lus 
new style and his progress was _ rapid. 

In the local fashion, Qadir was 
taken under the wing of the Habib 
Bank, one of numerous Pakistani 
business houses and other institu- 
tions who run sides in the domestic 
first-class competitions. The Haoio 
Bank were just becoming a force m 
cricket and their captain, Abdur 
Raqeeb, a left-arm spinner, became 
Oadir's first mentor. As spinners, 
Sere was an empathy between foem. 
Later Qadir established a bond with 
the wicketkeeper, Wasim Ban, ms 
first Test captain. 

asim advised and 
guided me and above 
all he kept faith when 
thing s went wrong, not 
least on my first visit to 
England when I had a shoulder 
injury. I have never been ooacbedm

Oadir’s religion has a hand, too, m 
restricting the extent to which he 
capitalizes commercially on his fame 
as a cricketer. He is happiest away 
from the limelight, at home in fos 
new house, seeing as much as possible 
of his four young children, three sons 

and a daughter. . 

Second to Oadir’s religion, though, 
is a fierce desire for his country to do 
weiL "Pakistan’s victories always 

mean more to me than any successes I 

might have," he said. When omitted 
from a Test against India for .disci- 
plinary reasons, Qadir admits to 
weeping endlessly as he watched 
television and saw the P akis ta n attack 
struggling.

England completed the

working as Uiey look ahrad to 
the Brisbane Test tomorrow 

W ^TTie Country XT bowling, like 
that of its P«decessorsat Lawes 
and Wudinna, provided no real

Bui nobody can do more than 
dominate the attack acnaUy

tomorrow’s pitch, ti^c ti^ee 
selectors: Gattmg, Emburey and 
Micky Stewart,, the manager m 
charge of cricket, may be 
tempted to give tiiemselves an 
extra option for the Test by 
making room for Athey through 
leaving out a bowler.

second full season of Sheffield 
Shield cricket, is building a 
reputation as a dangerous 
inswing bowler. His selection tn 
Australia’s 12 for Brisbane was 
not forecast, but on the evidence 
of Western Australia s first two 
games it was deserved, his 1 1 
wickets costing under 20 eacn. 

Reid, who is also in the Test 
XJL is 6ft 8in. Like Garner of 
theWest Indies he makes up m 
accuracy and bounce what he 
lacks in pace, and cuts the bau 
away from the right-handed 
batsmen. Both are new to 
England and it is hard to think 
that Slack, who was twice 
dismissed by Frei, also a left- 
hander, in the 
game, is looking forward to the 
confrontation with much con- 
fidence. 

Marsh, the opening batsman, 
and Wood, the captain, who 
made a patient 100 in the Trent 
Bridge Test last year, are West- 
ern Australia’s other present and 
past Test players. To England s 
disappointment, though. Marks, 
a recent team mate, has been 
omitted from the side to give 
experience to Mulder, a ~2year- 
old oflspinner who played six 
Shield games last season with- 
out establishing himself. 

Since England last played in 
Perth four years ago. Hi- 


dden tally, the pitch has been 
slightly re-aligned. As a resu,t 
the prevailing wind — the Fre- 
mantle Doctor — which springs 
up as though by clockwork every 
afternoon, now gives less assis- 
tance to bowlers from the sea 
end, blowing from extra cover 
rather than mid-off- New flood- 
lights tower overhead: ot 

Australia's Test grounds as 
Denness’s team knew them l- 
ycars ago, only Adelaide re- 
mains untouched by progress.

prevents crowd invasions. 

Jackie Hendnks, the West 
Indies manager, is w m«t 
Pakistan Cncket Board mem- 


bens today w ask how they 
intend to improve crowd con- 
trol and security for the rest ot 
the tour. He will ask for umpires 
to be briefed to take the players 
offas soon as anything is thrown 
on w the field. He is particularly 
concerned about the three one- 
day internationals still to come 
in Sialkot Multan and Hyder- 
abad. Tension is higher at the 
limited overs matches and ute 

first between the teams, at 

Peshawar on October 17, was 
also interrupted _ by crowd 
disturbances outside the sta- 
dium. Police had to use tear gas 
at the end of the game to 
disperse demonstrators. All the 
grounds West Indies are playing 
on are Worid Cup venues. 

Apart from tire risks to the 
players, the crop’s agowat 
Gujranwala as dusk fell were 
ham to understand as Pakistan 
were mounting a challenge for 
victory when the match was 
halted! For a visiting neutral, it 
was incomprebensiHe w be 
assured bv Gujranwala officials 


that the missiles were not aimed 

at the players. It is just that 
people gel too excited and they 
over re-act," said one. 

Richards, the West Indies 
captain, had already told foe 
umpires that he would take his 
players off iffoe botde-throwmg 

did not stop. After a fojjtoj 
shower of missiles had tmpetwi 
Haynes at deep third man. 
Richards signalled to his teamto 
head for foe pavilion. The 
umpires and Pakistani batsmen 
followed a minute or so later 
and the officials agreed with 
Richards foal the poor bghL 
coupled with foe crowd’s behav- 
iour, meant that foe “^tch 
could not be continued. But the 
controversy did "o* 

After a long consultation with 
ihe scorers about the playing 

regulations, the pi res 
awarded foe match to West 
Indies, who now lead the five- 
maich series 2-0. The umpires 
invoked an experimental rule 
for calculating the faster scoring 
rate which is being used tor me 


first time this season in Paki- 

^Javed Miandad. leading Paki- 
stan, first claimed that the 
match should have been 
awarded to Pakistan b«au» 
West Indies had walkw off. 
Then he said it should have 
been ruled as an abandoned 
match. "There was no question 
of bad light, were m a strong 

position and weredetennineti to 
plav to foe last ball," he said. 
Miandad was more realistic 
when he appealed to spectators 
lo behave themselves at the 
forthcoming matches and for 
officials and police to enforce 
stricter control. 

TTiis untoppy match also 
highlighted foe difficulties of 
completing two Stover inning* 
in a day on the seb-coniinen; — 
a contentious issue between 
India and Australia 2 few wc?l« 
ago. Neither of them were ao«c 
to achieve 50 overs in foree-anu- 
a-half hours and West Indies, on 
Tuesday, lagged even frulher 
behind.

RACING 


Harvey to shine again 
on Professor Plum 



B;IVbndarin(Mkl^Fli^} 




With Luke Harvey in the 
saddle. Professor Pimn is 
napped to win the Uxbridge 
Conditional Jockeys' Handi- 
cap Chase for the second 
successive year at Kempton 
Park this afternoon. 

Since Richard Dunwoody’s 
move to Condicoie, Harvey 
has become understudy to 
Hvwel Davies at Tim 
Forster’s Letcombe Bassett 
stable. Like Dun woody, he 
had a thorough grounding in 
the point-to-point field before 
graduating to National Hunt 
racing proper. 

Anyone who saw him part- 
ner Celtic Slave to victory for 
Forster in the main race at 
Chepstow on Saturday win 
not need reassuring that he is a 
young man worth following 
and certainly as good as you 
will find riding in a race of this 
nature. 

Twelve months ago. Profes- 
sor Pium bad only one to beat 
in this race and started at the 
prohibitive odds of 5-1 on. 
But with Landing Board. 
Rouspeterand The Hoorlayer 
among the eight opposing mm 
this “afternoon, his odds 
should be much more 
appealing. 

Besides last year's bloodless 
victory. Professor Plum has 
won two other chases at 
Kempton. thus underlining 
the long-held contention that 
he goes best on right-handed 
courses. Last lime out. he wa* 
runner-up to Glennie at Her- 
eford. having won his first 
race of the season there. 


Any disappointment feh at 
the time has sandy evaporated 
since because his conqueror 
went on to win in great style at 
Huntingdon before going 
down most gallantly at 
Cheltenham. And on Sat- 
urday. Glennie will take bis 
chance in the Mackeson Gold 
Cup. 

Later in the afternoon, 
Pegwell Bay. a stable compan- 
ion of my nap. makes his 
seasonal debut in the Standard 
Life Handicap Hurdle but he 
is unlikely to be able to 
concede a stone to the Perth 
winner, Borleafras, who has 
been sent sonth on a long 
journey from the Lake 
District. 

On the corresponding card 
12 months ago. Josh Gifford 
won both the Standard Life 
Novices' Chase with Hubli 
and the Vauxhatl Novices’ 
Hurdle with Summons. Now 
there are grounds for thinking 
that be has the likely winners 
of the same two races in 
BaDymnllish (2.0) and Yeo- 
man Broker (3-30). 

The stable is in fine form 
and neither will have to be out 
of the ordinary to succeed. A 
winner of three pomt-to- 
points in Ireland, Ballymullish 
certainly has the right back- 
ground while Yeoman Broker 
ran well enough behind 
Harry's Double at Chelten- 
ham last season to suggest that 
a prize such as today’s should 
come his way. 

Brimstone Lady, my selec- 


tion for the TattersaHs Mares 
Only Novices’ Chase Quali- 
fier, was a pretty smart handler 
two seasons ago. She is now 
trained by Fred Winter, who 
considers her to be more than 
equal to this sort of chaBenge. 

Buxroqgh Hill Lad's youn- 
ger half-brother. Artful Char- 
lie, had little to beat on his 
seasonal debut at Carlisle 
where he duly landed the odds 
with ease. So, with the future 
in mind, it will be interesting 
to see how he feres at Stratford 
where he will be pitted against 
the recent easy Huntingdon 
winner. Broken Wing, in tbe 
De Vere Hotels Novices’ 
Chase. The fetter is preferred 
on this occasion. 

Artful Charlie’s stable 
companion. Buckfow H2L 
will also be fended to extend 
Jimmy Fitzgerald’s fine recent 
run in tbe first division of the 
Southern Cross Novices’ Hur- 
dle following that good win at 
Uttoxeter But here I prefer 
Dawn, who was not 
disgraced at Worcester re- 
cently when fourth in a good 
race behind Skygrange, Pala 
Chief and Parang. 

Hie other division should 
go to Keynes, who had some 
good form on the Flat in 
Ireland where be was trained 
by Jim Bolger. Running for 
the first time over hurdles in 
this country, Keynes showed a 
lot of promise in the Uttoxeter 
race won by Tartan Tailor, 
who was already a winner this 
season.

Burnt Oak puts in a fine leap on his way to victory in the Lionel Vick Manorial Hssvticap Chase at Newbury yesterday 


Ibn Majed puts Ten Plus in the shade 

W * . . - . -1 i_ — *■ — Z— ri. Cm ** 


Ten Plus, who went through 
last season without lasting de- 
feat, was well beaten by Ibn 
Majed on his seasonal debut in 
the Tom Masson Trophy at 
Newbury yesterday. 

Tbe even-money favourite, 
thought by many to he the most 
exciting jumping prospect in 
training, was off the bridle a long 
way from home as Ibn Majed 
bowled along in front 
Ten Plus could do nothing 
about it as the leader went right 
away in tbe dosing stages to win 


by 10 lengths. However, FuDce 
Walwyn, the trainer ofTen Plus, 
was not downhearted and Hills 
still quote the horse 12-1 joint 
fourth favourite for the Gold 


fourth favourite for the 


Cup despite the feet he has 
never jumped a fence in pnbBc. 

Walwyn said; "Ten Phis has 
grown and thickened since last 
year and has probably needed 
more work than I’ve given him. 
But I wouldn’t want him too fit 
so soon anyway. He looks even 
more a chaser now and 2 may 
see how be jumps — although 
I’ve no doubts — and run him 
over fences straight away." 

Ibn Majed, who had been 
beaten out of sight behind Ten 
Plus at Cheltenham last March, 
came here very fit from the Flat. 
His trainer, Chuck Spares, said: 
"He came home from Chelten- 
ham with his back oul He’s 
improved since last season. He 


next in the A T Cross 


Hurdle on Friday week and then 
the Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot. 


tbe Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot. 
The further be goes the better he 

picks up, and when he jumps 
fences hell be a Gold Cup 
horse." _ 

Peter Scudamore ami Fred 
Winter shared a 7-1 double with 
Malya Mai and Ulan Bator. 
Malya Mai’s recent Ch el t en ham 
race clearly brought him on and 

over Premier Charlie when tak- 
ing foe Marsh R»»nham Handi- 
cap Chase in style. 

Winter said: "Malya Mai is 
learning all the time and jump- 
ing better this season. This was a 
good performance. He's no star 


but there’s a decent race is 
him." 

Although none too clever at 
the second and third,. ; Ulan 
Bator, even money favourite for 
the Coterhorpe Novices' Chase; 
came to the from with doc to 
jump and then quickened seven 
lengths sway from Baflynem. 

Ulan Bator rarely got round 
last season but he is now 
unbeaten in two starts this rime 

It seemed significant when 
Gordon Richards sent Ran- 
dolph Place all the way down 
from Greystoke for the National 
Hum Bat Race and so it proved. 
This fine young horse started 7- 
4 favourite and had the race woo 
a hag way from home. .

the Northumberland Plate and 
he has also won pattern races in 
Germany andliily. '

December 15. The world Graham, the “country boy,” 


Leonard in perfect 
physical condition 


New York (AFP) — Sugar 
Ray Leonard, who meets 
Marvelous Marvin Hagler tor 
the world middleweight tide in 
Las Vegas on April 6, is in 
- perfect physical condition, 
. according to doctors who have 
examined him to decide whether 
he is to box again. 

Leonard, aged 3ft, the former 
world welterweight and figfar- 
. ■ middleweight champion, retired 
from the ring in 1 982 on medical 
advice to undergo an operation 
on a detached retina in his left 
eye. Bat the doctors confirmed 
that the boxer, once regarded as 
the best pound -for- poand 
boxerthere has ever been, has no 
. . retina problem, and Leonard 
‘ I confirmed: ** I'm fine. 1 wouldn't 
fight if I wasn't.” 

Dr Edwin Flip Homanslti, the 
medical officer for the Nevada 
State Sporting Comnnsshm, 
gave Leonard the green fight to 
take on Hagler nnder WBC 
rales, over 12 rounds, after a 
thorough examination last week 
and he said: ** A patient is a 
patient. We went abont it the 
^ same way we would examine any 
■= person. My condos ton is that 
Leonard is in excellent physical 
health. There was no finding to 

R redode this fight in tire stale of 
levada.” 

CROSS-COUNTRY 


Three eye specialists, among 
them Dr Lords Angfoletti, aa 
expert on retina problems, were 
chosen by Lloyds of London, 
who are insuring the contest, to 
submit the former champion to a 
stringent eye examination. Dr 
AngMetti said: 'The weak area 
of the retina was completely 
reinforced so that, in my opin- 
ion, (here is less risk rtf' farther 
retinal damage. 1 do not think 
that Mr Leonard would be 
subjected to any unacceptable 
risks, 

“If I thought dime was a one 
per cent chance that he was at 
any greater risk to have damage 
done to his eye, I wonkf sit ban 
down and say: “I don't think yon 
should fight.” Leonard quipped: 
My eyes are fine. Look at 
Hagler's eyes. They have been 
swollen more than my eyes ever 
were.” 

Leonard is already assured of a 
payday of some SZ1 ariBjoa, 
whOe Hagler will collect a 
record parse of $12 miBiott pfus 
between SO and 75 per cent of 
the receipts ever and above 525 
milBnn. a deal which could as 
ranch as treble his earnings. Tbe 
promoter. Bob Aram, believes 
the bout couM net around $100 


tbe opponent was so long as it 


was me ongnt ugais. iva ru- 
rally, I want Hagler, he is the 
man to beat, but ul can't have 
him I'll fight anybody" 

Barkley, Hearns, or Hagler, 
it is almost certain that the 
January date win be missed. 
Graham sustained a small cut 
in his boat with Kaylor that 
needed two stitches. It could 
mean a six-wed; lay-off, which 
would leave Graham with too 
little time to prepare for the 
most important bout of bis 
career. 

Eastwood said he was dis- 
appointed in Graham’s train- 
ing for Kaylor and it is highly 
unlikely that will rush into a 
world title bout without ade- 
quate preparation. 

Graham will have to be 
much more accurate with bis 
blows against any one of the 
Americans than he was 
against Kaylor. 

Graham seemed to be trying 
to do two things at the same 
time; running and hi tting 
Only Leonard has mastered 
the technique of hitting on the 
retreat Graham's blows were 
often either well beyond the 
target or well short of it 

It was disturbing for his 
comer that be was never able 
to connect solidly enough to 
pm Kaylor on the floor as 
most boxers seem to be able to 
do these days. Eastwood gave 
him seven out of 10. My 
marks would have been five 
out of 10 and a can-do-better 
note to take home. 

By tbe seventh he was 
putting his shots together 
rather better and caught 
Kaylor with good combina- 
tions, and was smart enough 
not to overstay his welcome 
and stay to lunch, tea and 
dinner. 

Kaylor certainly had had his 
fill by the eighth. He looked 
unsteady on his feet, like one 
feels stepping off a stationary 
escalator. 

The West Ham boxer said 
that he would be moving up to 
super-middle — 12st — a kind 
of ok! colonels retreat where 
they can relive their Sidi 
Bammi days. 

Really, the boxing board 
should have a serious talk 
with him about his future and 
persuade him not to become 
just an opponent for young 
fighters. 


Bamford adamant 


W that he was right 


9 pace over 
joint team 

By a Correspondent 

Inertia, rather than enthu- 
siasm, is being shown by the 
administrators of cross-country 
'* in Britain towards the ruling by 
the international Amateur Ath- 
letic Federation (IAAJF) that, 
from 1988, only a joint team 
may represent them at the world 
" championships. 

At its meeting in Athens last 
July, the LAAF derided to end 
the anomaly whereby one of its 
members, die British Amateur 
Athletic Board, has for decades 
been sending four teams — 
representing England. Scotland, 
Wales and Northern Ireland — 
k in each of the three categories, 
w senior and junior men. and 
women. 

Instead of welcoming this as 
an opportunity for reform and 
the chance to set up a national 
distance squad (as advocated by 
Frank Dick, the national direc- 
tor of coaching) the response of 
the domestic authorities has 
been disappointingly lukewarm. 


Suggestions made by Tun 
Hutchings, the secretary of the 
International Athletes’ Club, for 
the formation this winter of an 
England squad have been re- 
buffed by the English Cross 
Country 0 nion. 

It was Hutchings who. six 
months 320. pretided over a 
meeting of many of the preseal 
England team, plus seven for- 
mer English champions, which 
called for a squad system with a 
more flexible method of team 
selection. 

a The meeting agreed that the 
traditional mud and guts rune- 
mile national race just three 
weeks before the seven and a 
half-mile international was 
detrimental to their perfor- 
mance. 

Hutchings, who won his sec- 
ond national championship last 
March, looks upon this winter 
as “a good opportunity to 
experiment” before the British 
team Is established “There area 
number of runners who are 
interested in the squad, which 
would make it an attractive 
proposition for sponsors, he 
saw. *’but The ECCU has re- 
jected our suggestion." 

Basil Header- En? 3 ™ I 
team manager and a national 
and international champion j 
years ago. says the ECCL is 
indeed committed to a squad 
system, and points to the fa's* 
meeting of the new junior group 
at Loughborough just two weeks 
ago. 

Bui he d3ims it is now too 

laic for an England squad to be 
Usefully established lor 
the present season. 

At the moment, the cross- 
country unions are having raws 
with the BAAB. and Heatic* 
intends to speak with Hutchings 
and other senior runners at uie 
Gateshead international later 
this month to discover their 


It took Maurice Bamford 150 
paces from the Old Trafford 
dug-out to the Great Britain 
dressing room to decide what he 
was going to do, and he made up 
his mind only in the Iasi few 
strides. 

Along with 50,000 others, he 
had seen Great Britain thrashed 
38-16 by Australia and knew 
that the inquests were about to 
begin. He also knew that when 
be got back to the dressing room 
he would find 15 men with 
bowed beads, some with tears in 
their eyes, still trying to work 
out what had gone wrong. 

“1 counted every one of those 
paces,” Bamford told me. “I 
knew it was all the time I had to 
make a decision. I was going 
back to a dressing room full of 
men whose confidence had jnst 
been shattered. They went out 
on to that field believing they 
would win. It fell apart and they 
were licked by tbe world’s best 
team. 

“What could J say that would 
lift them up restore that 
confidence in themselves? Only 
one decision could do that. I had 
to make them see and believe 
that l still had confidence in 
them. That is why I told them, 
then and there, that it would be 
the same squad of 17 for the 
second international at EOand 
Road. I saw the confidence 
coining back into them from the 
moment I said it.” 

When Bamford revealed his 
decision at the post-match wake 
in the Press room, jaws dropped 
and eyes blinked. Since then he 
has taken a_Iot of criticism for

letting his emotional loyalty 
override his judgment. 

“They wiH not let us down 
again. We can’t make the same 
mistakes again. The players will 
have gained in experience and 
now know exactly what to 
expect firom the Australians. We 
can come back in the second 
match just as we did when we 
beat New Zealand last season.” 

Bamford says there will be no 
change in bis training scheme or 
in his game plan for Saturday’s 
international. “There’s no need 
for a change. The plan was all 
right but tbe players did not pul 
it into operation. We have to 
move tbe ball wide, lock ac- 
curately, get among them and

things at Old Trafford.”

FISHING 


Rods for one’s back 


By Conrad Voss Bark 


Fishermen on Loch Awe. the 
famous trout loch in Argyll are 
involved la a cause tx&brt- Some 

of them are accascd of fishing 
with six or seven rods at a time. 

A Scottish correspondent iff 
die Treat ami Saimaa mg m aa e 
says that tbe Loch Awe 
Improvement Associa tio n re- 
gards that as an abuse, and is 

threatening to apply for a 
protection order, which wmrfd 
mean Hcences and controls. The 
Scots look upon licences to fish 
as an intolerable abuse of free- 
dom, so me can i m ag in e the 
high feelings involved* 

Tire mufti-rod fishermen seem 
to have gone a Bttie too far In 
provoking the Improvement 
Association. They are also ac- 
cused of cutting down frees 
lighting fires ami fearing utter, 
and of comnitfiag other offences 
which are not specified but are 
omiaoiisly described as “BMP 
serious”. A plea that It was 
necessary to fell a tree to make 
room for back casts would not go 
down well with the Forestry 

C ommissio n and from the other 

preliminary accusations either 
the Procurator Fiscal or tire 
«*«>♦» ='-** — 


or both, might also become 
involved in tbe case. 

What is perhaps of Interest to 
those not directly concerned is to 
point ont that for any man to fish 
six or seven rods at a time is no 
mean achievement. Tbe carp 
fishermen of England sometimes 
fish with two or three, la game 
fairs and tournaments one sees 
fly casting champions using four 
rods at a time to show off thefr 
skills, bat that seems as for as it 



An angler who can fish with 
six or seven rods at once with the 
prospect of catching six or seven 

trout and playing them aO 
simultaneously certainly has 
above average ability. He canid 
perhaps be going for indnaon fa 
the record books like the man 
who invented a mach in e which 
fired 20 shotguns at a tone at 
fields foO of pigeons. 

All the same, when one visual- 
izes tire scene on Awesife, the 
banting timber, the cans and 
paper tittering tbe banks, and 
those other more serious of-

one realizes (hat we are forts-

YACHTING 


Cudmore’s flying start is 
ruined by fickle fortune 


From Keith Wheatley, Fremantle 


/ Ate Sailing’s fickle 
god turned his 
: race against Har- 
V /■ old Cudmore 
» A yesterday. Just 
- . 'As 24 hours after 
'■■"amm the British 
captain's historic win over Can- 
ada U, an accident to a crew 
member and then gear failure 
wrecked While Ousader's chan- 
ce of a big win over America Q. 

On only the second tack after 
crossing the start-line weD ahead 
of the American boat, a flailing 
genoa sheet flung the powerful 
winefagrinder, Mark Rushent, 
against the winch drum. Ru&b- 
ent, aged 24. was badly winded 
and comptained of severe chest 
pains. He was taken below, laid 
on sailbags and given pain- 
killers. He spent tbe rest of the 
race there before an ambulance 
met White Crusader at the 
dockside and took the forma- 
rower to Fremantle hospital 
where he was detained with 
suspected broken ribs. 

Eddie Warden-Owen took the 
injured man's place on the 
winch handles. “We can’t blame 
the defeat on this accident but it 
was very much part of a day of 
bad luck." a syndicate spokes- 
man said. "These boats are not 
easy to sail with 10 men." 

In the blustery conditions of 
18 knots plus, the British did 
remarkably well to overcome 
their short-handed disadvantage 
and stay six seconds ahead of 
John Kolius at the top mark. 
Two legs later, on the first reach 
out to the wing mark, the 
spinnaker pole lined and then 
bent double in the stiff breeze. 
As the foredeck crew struggled 
to get the useless spar down on 
deck, and the spare out of the 


sewer, the yacht reached on for 
over two minutes with the pale 
white spinnaker not boomed 
out. 

Kolius, at the helm of Amer- 
ica Q. was 40 seconds in front at 
this point. He looked back at 
Cudmore's situation and 
hoisted a protest flag. IYRU 
rules require a spinnaker to be 
boomed out 

At the wing mark, the British 
were lmiu 1 5secx behind. Their 
spirits must have risen when 
they saw two crewmen up the 
lower matt of America II. 
apparently working on the luff 
of the sail. However, the prob- 
lem must have been minor since 
the American yacht did not 
appear handicapped up tbe next 
work. 

Al the end of the second 
reach, Cudmore suffered a fur- 
ther mishap. The ha uied -down 
spinnaker fell off the fbredeck 
and into the big sea. The halyard 
and sheets bad to be cm and 
White Crusader's tender later 
recovered the sail At the second 
leeward mark, the British were 
lrain l&secs adrift They man- 
aged to pull that back to 54 
seconds two legs later as they 
rounded the buoy again. But, at 
the finish-line, the Americans 
bad it by one minute exactly. 

“It was disappointing not to 
win but there’s no doubt we had 
equivalent boatspeed to the 
Americans," said Graham 
Walker, the British chairman. 
"The modifications to White 
Crusader have obviously been 
significant and in that respect 
we’re very happy." 

It was a sad letdown for 
Cfrdmore, having won tbe start 
against the Cup favourite, 
Kolius, and matched him boat 


for boat up the first beat. 

The day's other big race was 
between New Zealand and 
French Kiss where Marc Pajot 
remained in touch with the New 
Zealand yacht until the final two 
legs. Both boats flew protest 
flags after some tough and 
aggressive pre-start 

manouevres. None of the pro- 
tests was upheld. French Kiss 
seemed to fly downwind and, on 
two early runs and reaches, she 
halved the 30 second lead. 

Italia continued her slow but 
sure improvement, mopping up 
the middle order players. Aldo 
Miagticri won a close race, the 
lead never exceeding 40 sec- 
onds. against Canada ZL

Mitchell’s Recipe for getting 
cauti ®“ to top of the heap 

rewarded From Keith Wheatley, Fremantle 


By Barry PSdkthall 

Hairy Mitchell the sole Brit- 
ish entrant in this year’s BOC 
angle-banded round-the-world 
race, reached Cape Town early 
yesterday morning ecstatic at 
completing the first leg of this 
27.000.miie journey and look- 
ing forward to the next heavy- 
weather stage through the south 
Indian Ocean to Sydney. 

The 62-year-old from Ports- 
mouth, who entered this event 
to fulfil a life-long ambition, 
crossed the line in nineteenth 
place, his cautious sailing bring- 
ing him in ahead of six rivals 
counted out by sinking, capsize, 
iiyury and dismasting. 

Mitchell observed: “1 said 
before the start that this race 
would be Hke a war of attrition 
and I’ve been proved right If we 
lose so many boats on this first 
leg, bow many more are going to 
be knocked out on the toughest 
legs to Sydney and Cape Horn?” 

Mitchell, the oldest compet- 
itor in the race, and sailing one 
of tbe smallest boats in the fleet 
said on arrival that while he had 
taken it relatively easy on Ihis 
first 7, HXMniJe sage from New- 
port Rhode Island, the last part 
of the voyage had been a race 
against time. ”1 bad to get in this 
week in order to play in the 
cricket match on Sunday” he 
joked to the race chairman. 
Robin Knox-Jobnston, who has 
volunteered to teach lfre French, 
American, Czechoslovak and 
Finnish competitors the rules 
before they play against a South 
African team at the week-end. 

Though Mitchell's 4 1 -foot 
Double Cross was slowed by 
torn sails and a cracked boom, 
and a fault with his radio left 
him out of touch with the res! of 
the fleet for three weeks, be was 
looking forward to the next stage 
- although il wjjl probably pose 
the biggest test for all the boats. 

Before that, he enjoyed a close 
race he had with Mac Smith's 

American-entered Quail o, and 
tbe Japanese boat Madonna, 
skippered by Takeo Shimada, 
until both were forced to pull 

Mt« -v^iilpror 


Richard De Vos intends no 
slight on the America’s Cop by 
bringing his second-best boat to 
act as tiie New Yak Yacht 
Orb’s floating headquarters. 
Ent er pri se HI is 40 metros bog, 
can host eight gnests to four 
staterooms and is op for safe at 
US$5.9 million. 

Enterprise IV is seven metres 
laager but is busy m the United 
States entertaining De Vos’s 
easterners and staff 

The co-founder and joint 
owner of the w or ldw i de direct- 
selling organization Aurora y, De 
Vos is also the chairman of 
America IL the New York Yacht 
Club syndicate. He is no New- 
port 'hearie', just a successful 
businessman who likes to race 
his own J5 metre yacht at 
weekends. 

His explanation of bow he got 
to toe top of toe heap is prosaic 
bat graphic: “You giro $10,000. 
Then SMneoae comes across aad 
says would you giro $50,000? 
Next, it's would yea be finance 
director?” The vice-chairman- 
ship aad finally the top spot 
came tbe same way.“There you 
are three years later and you're 
in for tens of thousands iff 
dollars and you Ye the chairman. 
A series of events and yoaVe 
totally immersed. It’s the pat- 
ten of most people’s lives.” 

De Vos has a theory, wed- 
thooght oat, that most of os 
sever make (fig decisions, ft is 
jest a string of little ones that 
add op to a definite answer. The 
organization of the America II 
administration owes a lot to the 
De Vos world view. He came in 
to dean np the mess after 
syndicate politics had deposed 
two chairmen in the early days. 

“The syndicate was pat to- 
gether by one gny. Chock 
Kjrsch," De Vos recalled. “He 
got it off the ground, broogbt tbe 
first players together, Arthur 
Santry fed in the Interim, sorting 
things out. then I came to. They 
asked the guy who knows least 
about ft to do the job. 

“The first business F ever 


school right after the War— hot 
1 didn't "know how to fly. 
Sometimes a business is best if 
you don't know all those things, 
then yon can concentrate on the 
team — as opposed to tbe 
chairman having to know about 

•ailing, <afl mannf«ftnn > anri all 

that stuff. 

“The chairman's real job is to 
co-ordinate all the experts, get 
them on the team and raise the 
money to make it all happen.” 
America II have been singularly 
successful at that. Three big 
corporate sponsors, Cadillac, 
Newsweek and Anraray. pies 
nazneroas affluent iodiridinls 
have underwritten a $13 mfllhm 
budget that has since expanded 
to to excess of SIS million. “It's 
the continuing cost of research, 
escalating shipping and han- 
dling prices” De Vos said. 
“Nickel and dime stuff. Tea 
thousand here, ten thousand 
there." 

A priority with die syndicate 
administration has been to keep 
fond-raisiag pressures off 
Kolias and the senior crew 
members. They worry only 
about going out to win races. De 
Vos makes a contrast with 
Dennis Conner, off to look for 
new sponsors in California in the 

break between races. 

“We all know what type of 
energy ft lakes and the price 
yonr body pays for all those 
hours flying to the States aad 
back," De Vos saysTBct tenths 
of seconds, those are the mar- 
gins of victory. A little bit of 
alertness, a sail goes overboard. 
How do yon read?" When ft 
happened to Conner the other 
day he cot the genn loose and 
made himself vulnerable to a 
Kiwi protest for not finishing 
wftfi all the sails with which he 
started the race. 

De Vos is a political animal. 
He is a former chairman of the 
Republican National Committee 
and a major fund-raiser for 
RonaM Reagan. Overtures hare

Snooker’s rising star in profile 

Ambition is the 
driving force 
for Mr Clean 


Neel Foulds had a ren-in with 
the law recently. “Yon can’t 
park that on the kerb, son,” a 
policeman said, eyeing the 
offending BMW dariiiy- "And 
I've spoken to yon before, 
haven't I? I recognize yonr face.” 

As well be might. Not because 
a young tongh keeps falling foal 
of tbe parldng laws in Romford, 
but because Foulds is the latest 
bright yocmg thing of the 
snooker world and to this TV 
age that means fame. Members 
of the Essex constabulary ex- 
cepted, few sports followers can 
fafl to know that Foulds, aged 
23, won his first major tour- 
nament this season, ranks fourth 
on earth, and is thinking seri- 
ously about becoming world 
champion. 

Which is qaito a thought. In a 
market that has everything from 
white knight Steve Davis to 
black sheep Aiex Higgins, is 
there really room for this former 
insurance clerk from Perirale? 

“I’m just not 
extreme enough” 

“Oh 1 know Tm in no 
ntan'sland at the mo meet," he 
said. *T don*: think I'll ever 
manage to be the bad boy of 
snooker. 1 don't take drags mid I 
don't drink enough. In fact the 
last time I got drank was on 
champagne after winning the 
BCE international this year in 
Stoke. No. 1 don’t think I could 
ever be hated for any particular 
reason. I'm jnst not extreme 
enough like Steve and Atex.” 

Apart from his possession of 
extreme talent and dedication, it 
is true that bis head is es level as 
the green baize tables be spends 
half tos life leaning over. He has 
a wife, a son. a mortgage in 
Ealing and affectionate mem- 
ories of tbe one and only time die 
glamour went to his head. 

He was 20. in his first year as 
a professional and in the first 
round of the Embassy — 
snooker's superbowl — he bent, 
of ail people, the flamboyant, 
.dissolute Higgins. Suddenly 
Foulds was a star, hounded by 
the Press, willing victim of Fleet 
Street's relentless qoote-ebasing 
charge. And then be tost in tbe 
very next round to Dong 
Nioontjoy. **I came right back to 
earth,” be said. “It was tbe best 
thing that ever happened to me.” 

Bat that is probably not true. 
A more likely tuning point 
came at tbe age of 12 when be 
accompanied his father Geoff, 
now a professional himself, to 
the old, seedy and now-demoi- 
isbed Bond Street snooker hall 
in E>Hng , Frozen with fascina- 
tion, Foulds junior watched the 
game for hoars nBta be took op a 
cue in earnest himself two years 
later. 


“Td arrive heme breathless 
from school so that I ootrfd race 
down to the snooker hall I got 
snefa pleasure from it, hitting the 
hulk as hard as I coaU, tire 
sound of them going into the 
pockets. 1 didn’t hare giri- 
frieods, I missed ont on football, 
1 even daydreamed to snooker” 

“Actually, I like 
watching snooker" 

One of the rea s ons for his 
spectacular rise may have some- 
thing to do with bis ma nager . 
Barry Hearn, who master- 
minded the recent snooker 
breakaway leagne. Fotrids re- 
gards tbe galvanizing, mara- 
thon-rsnning Hearn with 
obvious amusement as wefl as 
admiration. “I couldn't be like 
that,” he raid as Hearn cracked 
a bottle of cha mpag ne on the ran 
between meetings to celebrate 
nothing in particular. ”1 like to 
pot my feet np aad relax. 
Actually, I like watching 
snooker.” 

Modest living seems to suit 
Foulds, especially since he ap- 
pears to have an exaggerated 
sense of his own imimportaooa. 
He admits that being to toe 
same seven-man stable as the 
neon-lit att ra ctions of Davis, 
Thorne, White, Taylor Griffiths 
and Meo daunts mm. “On ore 
last trip to the Far East, tbe 
players all called me ‘Sflent’. 
They were having a tittle dig 
because I was so quiet. 1 know I 
most smile a bit more and make 
an effort, tat they’re personal- 
ities. How can 1 compete with 
that?” 

Not badly, Hearn thinks. 
“His potential is not in doubt. 
He’s promising to be world 
champion, and be’s never bro- 
ken his word to me yeti,” 

But neither has he broken 
through the snper-snooker-star 
barrier — yet. Passers-by still 
come up to him in the street to 
guess who be is. 

Where have they seen those 
steady pate Mae eyes and 
slightly crooked-tooth smile be* 
fore? Usually be puts them ont 
of their misery. “I fry to he 
nice,” be raid. “I still remember 
how wonderful ft was when my 
hero, Gordon Banks, gave me 
his autograph.” 

But, lest he shookl appear a 
recruit to the Steve Davis school 
of pore driven snowiness, Foulds 
admits some hardbitten am- 
bitions. He wants to be estab- 
lished, world champion, finan- 
cially secree — and known, even 
to members of the police force 
(traffic division). Finding a legal 
parking place for toe BMW can

EQUESTRIANISM 

Professional riders can 
compete in Olympics 

By Jenny MacArthur 


The International Olympic 
Committee have confirmed that 
professional riders will be able 
to compete in tbe 1 988 Olympic 
Games al Seoul providing they 
renounce their status and as- 
sume the role of non-pro- 
fessionals. 

This is on a “once only” basis 
— riders can revert to being 
professional after the Games 
should they so wish but they 
cannot then become amateurs 
again for any subsequent Olym- 
pics. No horse bearing the name 
of a commercial company or 
product will be able to compete 
at the Olympics. The new ruling 
is in accordance with the present 
eligibility rules of the Federation 
Equestn? Internationale (FED, 
the sport’s ruling body. 

In fact the new FE1 regula- 
tions arc so liberal that it makes 
Imle difference whether a rider 
is an amateur or professional. 
Riders can have all the benefits- 
of commercial sponsorship 
while remaining amateurs, as 
demonstrated by Michael and 
John Whitaker, sponsored by 
Next, and key members of the 
1984 Los Angeles Olympic 
leam. 

Tbe one stumbling block in 
the FEI regulations is the ruling 
which prevents Olympic parti- 
cipation if a rider teaches other 
international riders. 

Harvey Smith described the 
new ruling on Olympic eligibil- 


ity as “just authorities saving 
(heir faces”. He. along with 
David Broome and Malcolm 
Pyrah, turned professional in 
1972 when Britain decided to 
put its house in order and make 
a divide between professionals 
and amateurs in the hope that 
other countries would follow 
suit. 

The failure of the other coun- 
tries to do so resulted in 
Britain’s top riders being barred 
from the Olympics whOe most 
of the foreign top riders were 
still eligible. 

Pyrah who. together with 
Nick Skelton, would have been 
likely candidates for tbe Los 
Angeles Olympics had they not 
been professional said yes- 
terday from New York where he 
is competing with the British 
team, that he would consider 
taking up the option of becom- 
ing a non-professional if he had 
the right horse for the 1988 
Olympics. But. in his view, this 
change "should have happened 
several years ago”. 

Whatever the riders' feelings 
about Britain’s attitude towards 
^amateurism over the last de- 
cade the latest change in the 
rules for Olympic participation 
has come about lately through 
the efforts of the British Eques- 
trian Federation, who have 
made repeated representations 
to the FE3 on behalf of the 
professional riders.

THE TIMES THURSDAY NOVEMBER 6 1986 


RUGBY UNION 


Cherishing an era of effortless excellence Yorkshire squad 


History may be bonk, bat in 
tennis it is just abort all that is left 
for (he English to cherish, as a 
couple of books remind us, though 
more of that in a moment. 

Our present players staler from 
one ignominy to another. It is 
symptomatic that last week, prior to 
yet another eclipse at the Albert 
HalL many commentators were 
eagerily disinterring Virginia Wade, 
who was not even playing for 
Britain, because at 40 she provoked 
a greater sense of well-being than 
any of those who were. 

The United States seem happy to 
continue with the YVigbnnan Cup. 
and why not: what better nm-ont for 
their second team? Britain peren- 
nially hopes for the scoreline Canute 
1, Ocean 0. yet the competition must 
be a disincentive for national 
recruitment. counter-productive to 
morale, and a false promotion of 
sob-standard talents. 

What can be done for Britain? 
The game's most ardent devotee, 
Dan Maskell. keeps reassuring 
everyone that from what be sees of 
the development of young players 
there is light at the end of the tamel, 
but I suspect we ought for that to 
read -dranneT. The light seems far 
off. 

Poor Jo Done is in a hole of 
despondency from which recovery is 
improbable,' while it is difficult not 
to feel that Annabel Croft would be 
better described as a model who 
plays some Air tennis rather than a 
tennis player who does some model- 
ling. .such is her apparent 
preoccupation with appearance and 
alienation to sweat. Her enthusiastic

parents might be advised to cot her 
hair to the length Ann Jones used to 
favocw, to pot her in a pan- of Angela 
Mortimer’s shorts, and start again. 

Ability to hit strokes is not 
enough. Successful modern tennis 
players need, like all sporting 
achievers, a combination of skill, 
character and girts. Shortco mings in 
any one will undermine yon: witness 
McEnroe's vulnerable character. 

Buzzer Hadingham, the WnaWe- 
dou chairman, was saying the other 
day that perhaps all young players 
should be vetted not only for tennis 
technique hut for athleticism, to 
ensure that they have the physical 
attributes to go with baric court 
craft This is what they do in 
Czechoslovakia, mid is a principle 
long applied in the development of 
girls mid boys in totalitarian 
countries. 

East Germany switch competitors 
from sport to sport, gymnasts to 
athletics, and so on, Cuba converted 
Jnautorena from basketball to 
athletics. Borzov was programmed 
by the Soviet Union as a sprinter 
almost from the cradle. 

What a far cry ad that is from 


British traditions of effortless ex- 
cellence over the past century. 
Hadingham was talking at the 
launch of John Barrett's celebration 
of Wimbledon's centenary (*% 
There is also available, for those 
who wish to browse in nostalgia, 
Roy McKetvie's remarkable cen- 
tenary history of Queen's Club (*). 
Each is an invaluable soda! docu- 
ment as much as a sporting record, 
not least for toe wide compilation of 
photographs and ffiostrations from 

various archives. 

What distinguishes both accomts 
is that the authors have contrived to 
make their histories an absorb in g 
recreation of the mood of different 
eras. Barrett, by ramhimng in an 
mi complicated way events on court 
against a background of the wider 
world, gives a picture of tennis both 
compact and informative. 

As a former Davis Clip player and 
captain. Ins judgment of abffity 
gives, to those years of which he was 
a personal witness, a condensed 
analysis of a profusion of cham- 
pions, whether he is talking abort 
Olraedo, the Peruvian- American, 
Hoad, Laver, Borg or McEnroe. 

There is nothing better in the 
writing of spot than first band 
experience of the game. Barrett's 
narrative — with snch asides as Jean 
Borotra entering the ladies' dressing 
room in 1926 with his head covered 
by a towel in an attemp t to persnade 
Suzanne lengira to play a delayed 
singles in 1926, the year in which 
she scratched - Is ably abetted by 
Lance Tmgay’s distilled biog- 
raphies and many miqne pictures 


with the quality ignored by so many 
historical accounts, extended 
captions. „ 

McKdrie's own career in sports 
joannlisn on rugby and all racket 
games is almost as varied as his 
fascinating account of Queen's . It is 

an nrflkatfofl of the complexity of 
sports which the dab has witnessed 
that the index alone contains some 
1.400 names relating to tennis, real 
tennis, rackets, squash, football, 
rugby, athletics, fives, billiards and. 
snooker and table-tennis: not to 
mention social cycling, few wh i c h , 
such was its interest in the latter 
part of the last c e ntury, especially 
anwmg women, the dub contem- 
plated taking out a licence fin: the 
manufactiue of cycles. 

Queen's in my professional fife- 
tnne has' been something of ao 
anachronism, a dilapidated relic of 
the age of privilege, unable satisfac- 
torily to determine on whose behalf 
it should continue to function in the 
modern professional, commercial 
era. It has had an ambiance which 
personified that target of envy which 
became prevalent with the erosion of 
social barriers from the 1960s 
onwards: desired by those wfeocoold

TENNIS 


Golden racket could bring 
sparkle to McEnroe’s game 

From Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent, Antwerp 


A lot of .Americans are playing 
tennis in Antwerp this week. 
Maybe nobody told them that 
this" is the European Comrau- 
nitv Championship (ECC). 
under the official patronage of 
the European Economic 
Community, and was not de- 
signed to "swell Uncle Sam’s 
overseas earnings. 

John McEnroe. Jimmy Arias. 
.Aaron Krickstem. Brad Gilbert 
and Jimmy Brown represented 
the United Slates in the last 16 
of a singles-only event carrying 
about £645.000 in prize money. 

The winner’s share will be 
£150.000. Should the winner be 
McEnroe, he would have more 
cause than usual for getting 
excited. McEnroe won here in 
1 983 and anybody who takes the 
title three times in five years 
qualifies for a glittering bonus: a 
racket made from almost a stone 
of gold and studded with 1.600 
diamonds. Its artistic value is 
estimated at more than 
£700.000. That racket, plus the 
French championship and (even 
less likely) a grand slam, is all 
there is left for McEnroe to win. 

Much of the recent tennis 
news has concerned what 
McEnroe has been up to and 
what he may get up to next. For 
the moment, ail that matters is 
that his next opponent will be 
Brown, aged 21, who comes 
from Florida and mostly plays 
on shaie courts. Brown should 
not present any problems to 
McEnroe, who gave Boris 
Becker a tennis lesson in Ant- 
werp last year. 

Yesterday’s programme be- 
gan with on American win. 
Arias beat Claudio Mezzadri 6- 


4. 6-3. Arias lost bis rally 
previous match here, in 1982. 
Since then he has not played 
well enough to qualify for a 
championship that is basically a 
big-znoney benefit for the win- 
ners of European and grand prix 
tournaments. In addition, the 
ECC was founded to celebrate 
the 25th anniversary of the 
Treaty of Rome and has become 
a sporting rendezvous for the 
European business community. 

Who. you may reasonably 
ask. is Mezzadri? Even 
Mezzadri is beginning to won- 
der. .Aged 21. he is an Italian 
who was born in Switzerland 
and still lives there, though he 
often practises in Rome. 
Mezzadri is not sure whether he 
should regard himself as Italian 
or Swiss. Nor is he sure why he 
should be leaving Antwerp with 
a cheque for £ 1 0,500. 

Mezzadri has twice been 
lucky. He was invited to play in 
the qualifying competition, in 
which he was beaten. Then he 
was invited to fill a gap in the 
main draw and went on court 
with Arias. “He’s got a big 
forehand and he is very fast”, 
Arias said. “He gets a lot ofballs 
back”. 

Mezzadri, truth to tell, is not 
much good. The fact remains 
that a player not competent - 
enough to be accepted directly 
for a qualifying competition — 
and not competent enough to 
survive it — is going home 
£10.500 richer. There is some- 
thing crazy about the money in 
professional tennis these days. 

The ECC clashes with a grand 
prix tournament in Stockholm, 
which arouses the loyalty of the 


Swedes. Other players want 
grand prix points so that they 
can qualify for a big pay-day at 
the forthcoming Masters tour- 
nament- Ivan Lendl would have 
played in Antwerp hut was unfit 
So the only big names to appear 
in the draw here were Milloslav 
Mecir. McEnroe, and Yannick 
Noah. 

Considering the prize money, 
plus the fact that this is the best 
attended week-long men’s tour- 
nament in the world, the entry is 
modest. But the ECC has be- 
come a big event in its own right 
and has extraordinary features. 

One of these is the temporary 
indoor village erected in an 
adjacent car park. This village is 
carpeted and contains res- 
taurants. boutiques, a nightclub, 
and private lounges for cor- 
porate business entertainment. 
Like the tournament itself, the 
village is up-market- And what a 
pleasant change it is to fly to a 
tennis tournament by way of a 
1 6-sea ter aircraft cruising at 
7.000 feet Both the trip and the 
tournament are much to be 
pre f erred to the annual chore of 
reporting the US 
championships.

with a 64-man qualifying tour- 
nament of astonishing quality 
still in climax at the nearby

There was plenty of running

Express London League match 
yesterday at Motspv Park, 
where London University did 
well to hold a more experienced

persistence in takiag the ball 
through the middle made toe 
task of defenders so mach easier 
and both sides had players in 
this department determined to 
give tittle away. 

Thompson, with Baxter al- 
ways in dose support led the 
London attack effectively but be 
became too closely marked as 
tbe game progressed. Bowling 
and Adams we conspicuous 
among Beckenham’s forwards. 

Bowling’s quick breaks from 
the tine prevented .Thompson 
from co nve rt in g two early short 
corners for London who were a 
fittk more industrious m the 
first half. But Beckenham, de- 
spite their less-frequent excar- 
sxms, looked more dangerous in 
this period and wait ahead in

the 22nd minute when Bowfing j 
set up a chance for Adams to 
score with a strong angriar shot. 

. London drew level in the 
fourth urinate of toe second half , 
when Thompson converted a 
short corner with a superb hit 
after a perfect stop by 
Scfarimptan. 

Neither side estihfis h ed mas- 
tery after that, ahhe'«h chances 
were there for the taking. Adams

It is a frustrating experience to 
lose a match in toe dying 
minutes; it is even more 
frustrating when toe opportu- 
nities to ensure victory lave not 
been taken, which was the case 
with Warwick School yesterday 
when they lost by a goal, a tty 
and a penalty goal to two fries 
"and two penalties. 

Warwick played with the 
wind in tire first halt and led by 
only 7-4 at the interval, kicking 
themselves for haring allowed 
. Summons to break through and 
send Frow over in the second 
minute. But thereafter -they 
worked space for themsdves, 
only for tire timing of the pass to

in the final minute kicked by 
Burrow. 

Coming bard on the heels of 
tbe second try scored by the 
scampering Frow, who looked a 
good finisher, it must have 
seemed to Warwick that a 
commandine lead had somehow 
dissolved- Mofiatt, in particular, 
had worked hand in midfield, 
creating the position for 
Beach us’s try but it may have 
been some satisfaction that they - 
should have run their Worcester

What makes Sammy run could be a chip 


♦ Considering how chest-puffing 
and backstopping Pioneers of the 
Future (Channel 4,8,05pm) is 
about the yesterday and today of 
the silicone chip and aD its 
manifestations, it is rather strange 
that it is so cautious about what 
may happen tomorrow. Apart 
from the general forecast that it is 
in the micro-computer software 
area that the next chapter of high 
technology exploitation wiQ be 
written, there is little to set the 
blood pounding through our veins 
beyond one expert’s vision — be 
says it might happen in five years' 
lime - when it could be a robot 
and not Sammy that pops through 
the cat-flap ( no more mess on the 
carpets and no more claw-marks 
on the furniture), and electronics 
would take the fag out of mowing 
ihe lawn.

• Like Barnacle Bill, The Horse’s 
Month (Channel 4, 9.30pm) is one 
of those Alec Guinness films we 
are always forgetting about The 
reason could simply be that they 
just weren't worth remembering. 
What I remember most about The 
Horse’s Mouth is that although 
Guinness, playing the dis- 
reputable painter Gulley Jimson, 
was supposed to be the sole 
begetter of the canvases, they were 
actually the work of John Bratby. 
What went wrong with the film. I 
think, was that Guinness chose to 
adapt Joyce Gary’s book himself 
as well as write the script, and 
although he demonstrated that he 
knew how to do the former, he had 
more difficulty with the latter.

Goddard 
poised 
to move 
north 


Celtic bow out in 


By a Correspondent 


Paul Goddard, the West 
Ham United forward, will 
decide today whether to join 
Newcastle United in a record- 
breaking £450.000 

iransfer.The England inter- 
national spent yesterday in 
Newcastle, but flew home last 
night without signing. 

Goddard agreed personal 
terms with United manager 
Willie McFauI. but said:“lt 
has been a hectic day and 1 
want to sit down quietly with 
xny wife and talk about the 
move. I've been impressed 
with what I’ve seen, though, 
and 1 don’t think there will be 
any problems." 

He added: “1 wouldn't hesi- 
tate if it involved a club near 
London, where I've been very 
fortunate to spend my whole 
career. It's where ! was 
brought up and this will be the 
first lime Fve had to leave 
home and start a new life. It's 
a long, long way to 
Newcastle." 

United are currently at the 
foot of the first division, but 
Goddard insisted that their 
poor start to the season 
wouldn't be a factor in his 
vcrdicL'Tt doesn't bother me 
one little bit." he said. “They 
seen to be in a false position." 

The 27-year-old has been 
offered a new contract by West 
Ham. but believes his chances 
will be restricted because of 
the presence of Tony Cottee 
and Frank McAvennie. 

He said:“West Ham don't 
want me to go. but my recent 
games in the team in place of 
Frank have whetted ray ap- 
petite for the first division." 

McFauI. who will smash 
Newcastle's record fee of 
£250.000 if Goddard signs, 
said last nighL-“rm very 
pleased with the way things 
have gone and Pm optimistic 
he will join us. 

•‘It's up to him — l can't do 
any more than agree the fee 
with West Ham and fix his 
personal terms. 1 will be 
disappointed if it falls through 
now, and [ won't be totally 
happy until his name goes on a 
contract.” 

If Goddard agrees to the 
move. Newcastle's general 
manager Russell Cushing will 
head south with the contract 
today to ensure he signs in 
time to play at Leicester on 
Saturday.

Dynamo Kiev 
Celtic — — . — 


3 


(Dvnamo win 4-2 on 

The sleek skills and 1 
finishing of Dynamo Kiev 
proved too much for Celtic in 
the European Cup yesterday, 
but the Scottish champions 
left the huge Central Stadium 
with their heads held high. 

They had fought bravely in 
giving the Russians, who are 
reckoned to be the best club 
side in Europe, the fright of 
their lives and remained in the 
second round tie with a 
chance of winning until a 
minute from the end. 

At limes, too, their aggres- 
sive but well-planned attacks 
silenced the 100,000 
spectators. who filled the 
stadium on a cold night, and 
Paul McStay matched any of 
his more renowned opponents 
in an elegant performance. 
Indeed, there was no hint of 
failure in the Celtic ranks; they 
lost really because they app- 
lied such exuberant pressure

that they left themselves open 
at the back in a dramatic 
second-half in which they 
more then shared the honours. 

But there was no disgrace 
this time in Celtic's dismissal 
from the tournament, which 
they won in 1967. David Hay, 
the manager, was justly proud 
of their play, especially of his 
younger players who came so 
near to gaming one of the 
dub's best results in European 
competition. 

In the fust-half; however, 
Bonner was the Celtic saviour, 
his fine saves and intelligent 
anticipation baulking the ea- 
ger Dynamo attack, whose 
players flitted from defence to 
attack in kaleidescopic fash- 
ion. But the Irish international 
goalkeeper had no chance 
when Kiev opened the scoring 
after 12 minutes; a free-kick 
taken by the veteran Blokhin 
was floated past him with 
Brazilian impudence. 

Celtic changed their tactics 
after the interval, O’Leary' 
corning on for McGrain and 
MacLeod moving into the 
midfield. This led to a more 


positive approach and, for a 
spell, most of the play was 
confined to the Dynamo pen- 
alty area. 

McGhee equalized with a 
fine shot following a spirited 
run by McLeod and so force- 
ful was the Scottish onslaught 
that Charnov was called on to 
make several good saves to 
keep his side in the game. 

Celtic were still in com- 
mand when Kiev emerged 
from their lethargy to show 
why they are among the 
favourites to lake Europe’s 
premier trophy. In a quick 
break, Yakavanko slipped the 
ball into the Celtic goal from 
12 yards as the Scottish 
defenders vainly played for 
offside. 

Gallantly, Celtic pressed 
even more briskly as they were 
well aware that another equal- 
izer would give them the tie on 
the away' goals rule. But they 
could not match their oppo- 
nents in finishing power and 
Yavashenko, in the dosing 
minutes, scored the goal 
which assured Dynamo of a 
place in the thir d round.

Claesen is double-booked 


By Hugh Taylor 

Rangers’ delight over vic- 
tory in Europe was tempered 
yesterday by the announce- 
ment that Graeme Souness, 
their player manager, will not 
be available to play in the 
third round of the UEFA Cup, 
to be made tomorrow in 
Zurich. 

Souness. who has an achil- 
les tendon injury, has been 
forced to go into hospital for 
an operation and he will be 
out of action for a month, 
which means he has no chance 
of playing in the UEFA Cup 
ties on November 26 and 
December 10. 

Although Souness will be 
missed, he was philosophical 
about what he called one of 
the wont injuries of his career 
and was still full of praise for 
the sophisticated way his team 
had played to defeat Boavista 
1-0 in Oporto. “So well did 
our midfield play that I might 
not have got my place back 
anyhow." He declared that the 
dub’sreal goal was the premier 
division championship. 

He put his players' feet back 
firmly on the ground when he 
said: “As we stand, we are not 
yet good enough to win either 
of these honours and our 
search for players continues."

Tottenham look set to lose 
their £600,000 Belgian striker 
Nico Claesen for their 
Littlewoods Cup tie with 
Cambridge United this month 
because he is wanted by his 
country on the same night. 

Claesen. who scored three 
goals in Belgium’s last game, is 
needed for a European 
Championship match against 
Bulgaria in Brussels on 
November 19. 

Tottenham are away to 
Camb ridge in the Littlewoods . 
Cup, and a win would take 
them to the quarter-finals. 
Manager David Pleat wants 
Claesen for that tie. 

Pleat said: “When 1 signed 
him, I said I would release him 
to play in international games, 
because I think they are 
important for him. But if there 
is a dub commitment on the 
same day, and it is important, 
that would take preference. 
We have got injuries, and l 
want Nico available for the 
Cambridge match." 

However, UEFA rules state 
that EEC clubs must release 


their players for their 
country's senior matches in 
the World Cup and European 
Championship. 

Under article two of the 
principles of co-operation, the 
UEFA regulation states: “It 
must be deariy stipulated in 
such a contract that the dub is 
obliged to put the player at the 
disposal of his original na- 
tional association for all FIFA 
and UEFA competition 
matches, ofhis national repre- 
sentative team without any 
charges whatsoever." 

Any dub in breach oV the 
article could be fined by 
UEFAA precedent was set in 
1980 when, after intervention 
by the Irish FA. five players 
had to be released by their 
dubs for the Republic of 
Ireland’s World Cup qualify- 
ing games. 

neat added: “At the mo- 
ment our dub secretary is 
looking at the situation. Clubs 
have to release their players in 
international weeks but for 
some reason it would appear 
that Belgium are playing out- 


side a normal international 
week." ; 

One escape for Claesen 
would be if Cambridge draw 
their first round FA Cup tie at 
Exeter on November 1 5. They 
would then replay die follow- 
ing week and the Littlewoods 
game against Tottenham on 
November 19 would be re- 
arranged, allowing him to 
compete against Bulgaria.' -

Droy’s boost for Brentford 


Brentford have signed the 
former Chelsea centre-half- 
Mickey Droy from Crystal 
Palace on a free transfer. Droy 
is Brentford’s second 
“veteran” signing in two days 
following the acquisition of 
the former Tottenham 
Hotspur captain Steve 
Perryman from Oxford 
United. 

Frank McClintock, the 
Brentford manager, said: “I 
am delighted with this coming 
on top of us getting Steve. 
Mickey's strength and experi- 
ence will be a great asset to 
us." 

Both Droy, aged 35, and 
Perryman, aged 34, who is 
also the third division club's 
new assistant manager, will 
make their debuts for Brent- 
ford at Chester City on 
Saturday. 

• Nicky Morgan, the Ports- 
mouth forward, has joined 
second division rivals Stoke 
City on a month's loan. Mor- 
gan, aged 27, who scored 14 
League goals for Portsmouth 
last season, has failed to re- 
establish bis first team place 


this season and Stoke may 
make the move permanent if 
they can raise the £60,000 
asking price. Morgan makes 
his Stoke debut at Hull City on 
Saturday. 

• Sheffield Wednesday are 
ready to part company with 
Chris Morris, a defender, if 
the price is right. Howard 
Wilkinson, the Wednesday 
manager, has accepted a trans- 
fer request from Morris, aged 
22, who has been playing in 
the reserves most of this 
season. But Wilkinson regards 
Morris, who made four first 
team appearances at the begin- 
ning of the season, as a 
valuable asset. 

Wilkinson said: "Chris has 
expressed his desire to move 
quite strongly and I under- 
stand his feelings but at the 
same time I believe we need a 
large squad. If anyone is 
interested they will have to 
name a price. Chris is worth a 
lot of money to this club." 

Morris added: “Wednesday 
are a great club but my first 
team chances here are limited. 
It’s time for me to start 


regular first team 

football.” 

• Brighton and Hove Albion 
have pulled out of the deal to 
sign Mark Adams, a midfield 
player, from Harrow Borough, 
after agreeing terms with both 
the Vauxhall-Opel League 
club and the player.

terms and to sign a two-year

(Dundee United win 3-1 
a$g) 

Dundee United progressed 
into the UEFA Cup third 
round without too many anx- 
ious moments in Romania 
yesterday afternoon. Despite 
all the pre-match concern. 
United comfortably weath- 
ered almost everything Cra- 
iova could conjure up. 

The inexperienced Scottish 
side quickly came of age deep 
inside Eastern Europe. Al- 
though Craiova maintained 
their excellent home record, 
they never at any stage looked 
like retrieving the three goals 
they conceded in Scotland. 

Afterwards, United’s nor- 
mally res e rved manager, Jim 
McLean, commented excit- 
edly: "I'm really proud of 
every player. Thar work rate 
was nothing short of in- 
credible. They did a great job. 
When you take into account 
the team's lack of experience 
at this level, it’s an outstand- 
ing achievement.” 

The manager said if anyone 
had to be singled out it was 
Billy Thomson, the goal- 
keeper. He settled everyone 
early on letting the Roma- 
nians know they had someone 
special to beau 

“It’s so important for a 
defence to know they can rdy 
on the ‘keeper to take every- 
thing in the air,” McLean 
continued. "The kids in the 
back four took their lead from 
Thomson, and did tremen- 


dously weB when you consider 
Maurice Malpas was the eldest 
at 23. It was a big test but we 
came throu^r it magnif- 
icently”. 

In feci. United could easily 
have won this away 1% too. 
On a bitterly cold day. they 
quickly silenced the home 
crowd of 50,000 plus the 
hundreds watching from 
surrounding rooftops. Al- 
though the attendance was ail 
ticket, many holders started 
queueing four and a half hours 
before kick-off. It was a big 
day in central Romania. 
United, however, were in no 
mood to sympathize. 

In the first halfhour 
Bannon shot straight at the 
goalkeeper, Rada cleared off 
the line from S tarrock and 
Bannon strode the bar with a 
header. While it was never a 
bad tempered tie; the French 
referee showed the yellow card 
to Beaumont, Bannon and 
Rada in the first half 

The Romanians made their 
big move immediately after 
half-time. They scored in foe 
58th minnte when Clark and 
McGinnis hesitated. Bita 
rounded Beaumont and al- 
though Thomson got a hand 
to the shot, foe ball span into 
the roof of the net. 

With Bannon and Redfold 
shuffling between midfield 
and attack. United countered 
by denying Craiova space in 
which to work.

Wolves appeal rejected 


Wolverhampton Wanderers 
have lost an appeal against a 
£5,000 fine imposed for their 
late withdrawal from this 
season's Central League- Dick 
Homden, the fourth division 
club's chairman, and Keith 
Pearson, the secretary, pre- 
sented foe dub's case to an FA 
committee in Manchester yes- 
terday but were unsuccessfuL 
On top of foe £5,000 fine, 
the club wore also ordered to 
pay foe £25 appeal fee and 


hefty costs. Homden argued 
that as his new regime took 
control on August 18, they had 
no chance of withdrawing by 
foe April 1 deadline. 


This latest financial blow 
came on foe day that Wolves, 
who polled out to save on 
travelling costs, were planning 
to allow their manager, Gra- 
ham Turner, a “small amount 
of money” for team 
strengthening.

Russian weightlifter, Anatoly 
Pisarenko, who was dismissed 
from the national team last 
year after his conviction on

Pisarenko was strinxd of 
his awards last January along 
with his arch rival, Alexander 
Kurtovich. and the national 
team trainer, Alexandr 
Pritepin. for activities that 
were “damaging the honour of
