It now seems certain that 
Mrs Thatcher's visit to Mos- 
cow next year will take place 
before any new summit be- 
tween President Reagan and 
the Soviet leader Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov in Washington. 

Although the Russians have 
not fixed a date for her visit to 
Moscow, it will almost defi- 
nitely be in April and dip- 
lomatic sources are convinced 
that there is no likelihood of a 
follow-up summit in Wash- 
ington before then. So Mrs 
Thatcher’s visit has taken on a 
new dimension. 

A series of key meetings are 
being planned for Mrs 
Thatcher before she goes to

will be a session with Presi-

and she sees herself adopting a

Despite the collapse of the 
Reykjavik summit, Mrs 
Thatcher has not changed her

lomatic status" — diplomatic 
shorthand for espionage. 

Earlier, there had been 
hopes on the US side that the 
issue of the expulsions of the 
Soviet UN personnel — also 
on suspicion of espionage — 
had blown over. A senior 
Soviet official hinted as much 
at a press conference last 
week, but last night American 
sources said that the new 
expulsions had escalated the 
aflkir, as their positions were 
not compatible with the mem- 
bers of the UN mission. 

Tasssaid that a firm protest 
had been lodged with the US 
Embassy over the activities of 
the five, one First Secretary, 
Mr William Norvill, Mr 
Charles Ehrenfried. Mr Gary 
Lonnqist, and Mr David Har- 
ris, all from the US Embassy 
in Moscow and Mr Jack 
Roberts from the American 
Consulate in Leningrad. 

“The attention of the US 
Embassy was again drawn to 
facts of the continuing use of 
American diplomatic mis- 
sions in the USSR for illegal 
activities against the Soviet 
Union and the demand was 
made that appropriate mea- 
sures be taken for stopping 
them," the Soviet commu- 
nique concluded. 

Although the Kremlin 
threatened retaliation for the 
removal of Russian UN staff 
deadlines for the expulsions 
were extended and both 
Soviet and American officials

State visit 
to China 
a success 

From Alan Hamilton 
Hong Kong 

The Royal Yacht Britannia 
pottered at a Sampan's pace 
down the Pearl River on its 
leisurely way to Hong Kong 
yesterday at the end of the 
Queen’s state visit to China 
which has been described as 
“fantastic” and one of the 
raosL successful of recent 
times. 

Her visit ended with a 
colourful display of Chinese 
dancing on the qumiside at a 
container port near Canton on 
Saturday night as Britannia 
prepared to leave. 

Unfortunately the Queen 
missed half of it due to a mix- 
up over timings, while she was 
inside the yacht investing the 
diplomatic staff-fronrthe Pe- 
king Embassy, who had ar- 
ranged the tour, with descend- 
ing classes of the Royal 
Victorian Order, a decoration 
in her own gift. 

Both sides are playing down 
the Duke of Edinburgh's gaff 
while speaking to students at 
Xian. 

Nevertheless British dip- 
lomatic sources in China re- 
main deeply embarrassed by 
the incident and fear a retali- 
ation at some future date. The 
feeling is being voiced pri- 
vately that the Royal couple 
should have been better 
briefed on the intricacies of 
China, especially its high re- 
gard for propriety and polite- 
ness. 

During the Queen's formal 
meeting with Mr Hu Yaobang,

The Government is pushing 
ahead with plans for foe 
reorganization of broad casting 
in advance of foe next general 
election, with the Prime Min- 
ister and Home Secretary 
favouring indexation of foe 
BBC licence fee to keep pace 
with inflation. 

They are pushing on with 
direct broadcasting by satellite 
to break up what Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher sees as the cosy 
monopoly of television 
advertising enjoyed by I TV 
companies, 

A Green Paper on foe future 
of radio due within the next 
few weeks is expected to 
revive the prospects for 
community radio and to lead 
to a new authority taking over 
looser control of local radio 
from the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority. 

Ministers have been stung 
by charges that they were 
allowing broadcasting issues 
to lie fallow until after the next 
election because difficult 
choices were involved and foe 
Peacock Committee bad not 
backed the Prime Minister's 
preferred option of advertis- 
ing on the BBC. 

A Cabinet committee is 
forging ahead with the 
preparations for several de- 
cisions to be made over the 
next three months, with an 
early Commons debate sched- 
uled. 

Five consortia are compet- 
ing for the 15-year DBS fran- 
chise, which will involve the 
provision of three more tcle- 


and agreeing to an extension 
of the franchise. A decision 
from the IBA is expected by 
January. 

The Green fttper mil exam- 
ine the structure, financing 
and regulation of local radio. 
The Government orignally 
backed the idea of community 
radio and planned to issue 
licences allowing ethnic 
minorities and specialist 
groups to broadcast in a six- 
mile radius. 

There was an outcry from 
those who had spent money 
on transmitters and equip- 
ment when Mr Dougins Hurd 
announced in Juno that the 
plan had been scrapped, and 
foal licences for the first 23 
stations, already postponed, 
would not be issued. But foe 
issue is expected to resurface if 
new ways can be found of 
settling who will control and 
administer the stations 

Mimsiers are considering 
the provision of some Gov. 
eminent money to help exist- 
ing groups to start up 
community radio. 

With radio only attracting 
about 2 per cent "of national 
advertising revenue, ministers 
have been alarmed at the poor 
finances of many local in- 
dependent radio stations. The 
Green Paper will also examine 
plans for a national indepen- 
dent radio station and the

Radio 2.

NEWS SUMMARY 


Tories may hear 
‘spanking’ tapes 

Conservative councillors at Basildon. Essex, will decide 
this week whether to listen to tapes which accuse Mr Har- 
vey Proctor, MP for BiUericay, of engaging in s panking 
sessions with young men. 

Poor senior members of BOlericay Conservative Associ- 
ation resigned last Friday after Mr Proctor received a vote 
of confidence at a stormy meeting daring which he was 
questioned about the allegations. 

If the Basildon councillors listen to the tapes, they will 
then deride whether to take action against the MP. One of 
the councillors, Mr George Dighton, said last night: “I to- 
tally support the four people who resigned. We believe that 
Mr Proctor is not doing enough to dear his name.** 

Mr Proctor, a bachelor, has described the allegatio ns as 
a “tissue of lies“ hot has said that he will not sae over the 
accusations because of the costs involved and because it 
would involve people having to give testimony and 
would embarrass them.

Secmity measures at

after the arrest eight days 
ago of an intruder (Tim

. The man was questioned 
but released without charge 
because no offence was 
committed. He had climbed 
scaffolding in an area of the 
castle which is open to the 
public. It is understood he 
told police he wanted to 
make a protest over a 
personal grievance. 

No member of the Royal 
Family was in residence at 
the castle at the time.

foe last 200 people held when they flew into Heathrow Air- 
port earlier this month In an attempt to beat the 
Government's new visa restrictions. 

The people, mainly single males from India, Pakistan 
and Sri Lanka, who were described as “tricky cases**, were 
moved at the weekend to the Hannondsworth immigrant 
detention centre, Middlessex, and to youth custody centres 
in Wiltshire and Kent. 

The Home Office said the detainees would be processed 
this week. To satisfy visa entry requirements, they most 
prove they have come to Britain as visitors.

BA pilots 9 
shares

Plans by British Airways 
pilots to buy up to 25 per cent 
of the airline's shares when it 
is privatized next year have 
been squashed by the 
management. 

The pilots wanted the Gov- 
ernment to allow them to buy 
up to £6,000 of shares each in 
the airline under a special deal 
arranged through (heir union. 
Balpa. and the Trustee Sav- 
ings Bank. That would have 
given them up to 25 per cent 
of the shares. 

But the airline management 
is determined that all its staff 
must be treated equally, from 
baggage handlers to Concorde 
captains, and will resist any 

such plans. 

Details of the privatization 
are to be announced in 
London tomorrow when it is 
expected that all employees 
will be offered about £100 of 
free shares and the right to buy 
the same number again at a 
discount

The Government is to be 
taken to the European Court 
of Human Rights once more

the court a further action by 
former shareholders of Scott

shipbuilding group.

panies nationalized by the last

builders. were awarded £53

Steel tries 
to unite 
party on 
defence 

. By Robin Oakley 
Political Editor 

Mr David Steel yesterday 
took the first step towards 
coaxing his party into a joint 
defence policy with the SDP 
after his defeat at this year's 
Liberal Assembly. 

Mr Steel met Mr Des Wil- 
son. the party president, Mr 
Simon Hughes, MP for 
Bermondsey', a party defence 
rebel, and Mr Jim Wallace, 
MP for Orkney and Shetland, 
the Liberal defence spokes- 
man. at his home in Etuick 
Bridge in the Borders. 

He is said to have agreed 
with them that the situation 
could have been handled 
much better at Eastbourne, 
and that there will be more 
consultation in future about 
the framing of resolutions, 
with more contact between 
leadership and rank and file. 

Mr Wilson said Mr Steel, 
“could not have been more 
receptive". He denied that the 
Libera] leader bad been trying 
to browbeat his {arty by 
threatening to resign if he did 
not get his way. 

However Mr Sled remains 
adamant that the liberals 
must agree with their SDP 
partners, who have settled 
their own policy, that an 
Alliance government would 
be prepared to replace Polaris 
if arms negotiations do not 
succeed. This is the same 
formula on which he was 
defeated at the assembly.

cash. But shareholders were 
paid £3.8 million, leaving the 
Government the goodwill plus 
a cash profit of £13 million.

their case at the Strasbourg 
court earlier this year when 
they sought to force the 
present Government to im-

have demonstrated that future

nationahze privatized com-

In addition, they believe, 
thousands of millions of Brit-

World.

Government supporters be-

compensation claims, to save 
a payout of about £300 Bullion

crucial to the Government’s

The Liberal leadership has 
still not decided on a final

The question will be discussed 
by foe party's policy commit- 
tee tomorrow, then by its 
defence panel and finally by 
the 19 Liberal MPs. The 
national executive will meet at 
foe end of next week to decide 
whether there should be a one- 
day patty assembly to endorse 
the policy. 

Mr Steel believes foal ft 
would be sufficient for foe 
party's policy committee, the 
body responsible for settling 
such questions between ass- 
embles. to agree to foe policy. 

But he is relaxed about the 
prospect of staging a special 
assembly. Party officiate are 
confident that Mr Steel would 
be able to carry foe day, 
especially since he lost by only 
28 votes at Eastbourne. 


Mr Wilson said they had

though they were also agreed 
that foe sooner they could sort

concentrate on issues such as

would be. 

Labour details 
nuclear arms ban 

A Labour government 
would not only dose Ameri- 
can nuclear bases and scrap 
the British independent 
nuclear deterrent, it would 
also ban foe use of battlefield 
nuclear weapons by the Brit- 
ish Army of foe Rhine and 
nuclear depth charges. These 
further details of Labour's 
defence policy were given 
yesterday by Mr Denzfl Da- 
vies. foe party’s defence 


spokesman, on London Week- 
end Television's Weekend 
World. 

But Mr Davies reaffirmed 
that Labour would stay in 
Nato. even if the organization 
remained committed to foe 
first use of nudear weapons. 

Britain would not follow foe 
example of New Zealand and 
ban foe entry to British ports 
of American vessels armed 
with nudear weapons. 

Mr Davies said that a 
Labour government would do 
what it could to change Nato’s 
strategy, in particular its reli- 
ance on nudear weapons, but 
even if those policies were not 
changed "we're not coming 
out of Nato. Well stay” 

He confirmed, however, 
that a Labour government 
would remove battlefield 
nudear weapons in Europe, 
arguing that such weapons.

sand times greater than that of

the enemy.

TJS link In Neave murder 5 


Powell claim called fantasy 


By Robin Oakley and Richard Ford 


An apparent accusation by 
Mr Enoch Powell that foe 
United States was behind foe 
murder of Mr Airey Neave in 
a car bombing at the House of 
Commons in 1979 was yes- 
terday dismissed in Whitehall 
as pure fantasy. 

Although Mr Tam DalyeU, 
Labour MP, urged foe Horae 
Secretary to conduct an in- 
quiry into Mr Powell’s sugges- 
tion, most MPs — even those 
who normally have some 
sympathy for Mr Powell on 
other questions — dismissed 
his claim as the product of an 
increasingly fevered conspir- 
acy theorist. 

Most politicians are now 
familiar with Mr Powell’s long 
argued belief that some kind 
of sinister deal was struck 
between the Americans and 
the British Government de- 
signed to move Ireland from 
its neutralist position to 
membership of Nato, and that 
this explains foe British 
Government’s lack of sym- 
pathy with the Ulster Unionist 
cause and the steady moves 
towards the Anglo-Irish 
agreement. 

But none could recall him 
taking it quite this far before. 

Mr Humphrey Atkins, for- 
mer Secretary of State for 
Northern Ireland, said last 
night "Enoch Powell’s latest 
outburst in support of his 
obsessive belief thar the Brit- 
ish Government will do ab- 
solutely anything to hand over 


foe province to foe Republic 
of Ireland is the wildest and 
most disgraceful yet. 

“It is such a pity that he 
cannot see that Airey Neave’s 
assassination united every- 
one, government and people 
alike, in a determination that 
violence should not succeed in 
its objeiives”. 

In his speech at Bir- 
mingham on Saturday, Mr 
Powell, foe Ulster Unionist 
member for South Down, said 
that the first move in the 
conspiracy had been to sweep 
away the stumbling block of 
Unionist government in 
Northern Ireland. 

“M16 and their friends 
proved equal to the job and in 
1969 active committal of the 
Army in Ulster subordinated 
Stormont to Whitehall." 

When the Conservatives 
were about to take office: 
however, according to Mr 
Powefi, there were doubts 
about whether they would go 
along with foe scheme. 

"The roadblock was cleared 
by eliminating Airey Neave 
on the verge of his taking 
office." 

The strategic importance or 
otherwise of the Irish Repub- 
lic to the Western alliance is a 
frequent question raised in 
discussions on the problems 
facing the north and south of 
foe island. 

Mr Powell believes foe 
republic is of such importance 
to it that the United States 


wants a united Ireland on 
condition that ft abandons 
neutrality and joins Nato. 

In foe republic Mr Charles 
Haughey. foe opposition lead- 
er, also suspects that his 
country has strategic value to 
Nato while in Western defence 
circles there is debate between 
those believing it is of im- 
portance and others who argue 
that modem technology has 
rendered foe republic prac- 
tically obsolete for Nato 
purposes. 

Irish neutrality, a dormant 
political issue in the republic, 
is backed by more than two- 
thirds of voters and any hint 
that it is being eroded by the 
country’s involvement in 
Europe raises suspicion and 
controversy. 

Some suspect a future gov- 
ernment may abandon neu- 
trality and either enter Nato or 
conclude a defence arrange- 
ment with Britain as part of a 
price for a united Ireland. 

The keen awareness of 
Ireland’s position is a critical 
argument for those wishing it 
to be a full member of the 
Western alliance as they be- 
lieve Nato’s western flank is 
exposed because of Irish 
neutrality. 

Some say ft provides a 
possible back door for the 
launch of a Soviet attack on 
Europe and that its inclusion 
in Nato would give additional 
strength to radar warning 
systems.

BBC costs ‘could have exceeded f lm 


By Jonathan Miller 
Media Correspondent 

The decision of the BBC 
Board of Governors to settle 
out of court the Panorama libel 
action brought by two Conser- 
vative MPs came amidst in- 
dications that the final cost of 
defending foe case to its 
conclusion could have ex- 
ceeded £1 million. 

Friends of Mr Neil Hamil- 
ton, MP for Tattoo, Cheshire 
and Mr Gerald Howarth, MP 
for Cannock and Borntwood in 
Staffordshire, said last week 
that they expected their legal 
bill to exceed £300,000. 

The MPS were said to be 
confident that they would 
more than recoup their invest- 


ment in foe suit against the 
BBC, whose programme, 
“Maggles’s Militant 
Tendency**, had alleged that 
they were among a group of 
Conservative politicians hold- 
ing extremist and racialist 
views. 

Legal observers suggested 
that foe BBC's costs could well 
have equalled or exceeded 
those of the plaintiffs. 

Had foe case gone against 
the BBC damages of just 
£100,000 to each of the two 
politicians would have brought 
foe corporation’s final bill to 
about £1 million. 

Under foe drcumstances, 
foe BBC decided to follow 
what has become a fairly 
routine procedure for news 


organizations in similar bat- 
tles, ami seek to settle the case 
before the legal costs grew oat 
of control. 

It was dear before the latest 
case went to trial that the BBC 
was less than fully confident of 
its prospects for success. A 
separate writ against the Pan- 
orama programme, issued by 
Mr Roger Moate, Conser- 
vative MP for Faversham, was 
settled a year ago for costs and 
a "suitable donation** to a 
charity of Mr Moate's choice. 

Other recent libel cases 
involving the corporation have 
included: 

April, 1985: foe BBC was 
embarrassed when an 87-day 
High Court libel case brought 


by a Harley Street doctor 
ended with foe court ordering 
it to pay costs of £900,000, and 
£75,000 damages. 

February, 1984: the BBC won 
an action brought against it by 
Mr Derek Jameson, the for- 
mer editor of Daily Star, who 
said be had been libelled by a 
sketch in foe Radio Four 
programme Week Ending. Mr 
Jameson's costs were said to 
be £75.000. 

Jane 1984: the BBC agreed 
to pay substantia] damages in 
a case brought by Bird's Eye, 
foe frozen food company over a 
BBC-2 programme which im- 
plied that foe company's "100 
per cent" beefburgers con- 
tained only 80 per cent of 
meat

It could easily be argued that Ruedesheim is the 
gateway to chat most beautiful pan of the River Rhine with 
its vineyards and castles. 

What is bey ond dispute is that it is the home of that

W3S here, around the rum of the century that Hus»o 
Asbach founded his world-famous distillery. 

It takes five litres of the finest wines to produce 
one single bottle of Asbach Uralt. What it also takes is 
the family skill in distilling-, the maturing in 
Limousin oak barrels; and of course die blending, 
handed down through generations, to create this 
soft, mellow, golden brandy. The after dinner

Peer calls on lawyers 
to settle court rights 

By Our legal Affairs Correspondent 

barristers re! about monopoly rights, 

M“ bco ^titeU^nr b pei^ 

me Law Society conference at 
the weekend. 

Lord Misbcon n>kl sefic- 
rtors at their animal meeting in 
Toranay that he and his 
colleagues were not helped in 
their parliamentary . efforts 
when legislation affecting the 
profession was being passed hi 
‘‘what appears to others as an 
unseemly conflict'*. 

He said that where possible 
the profession should present 
a united front in the of 
difficulties that confronted 
both branches. A public de- 
bate over rights of 
was |*not generally regarded as 
particularly seemly, nor is ft 
regarded as a contest which 
has as its mm element the 
interest of die lay client". 

Lord Mis hcon told the con- 
ference on Saturday that saefa 
a debate appeared as a “qaar- 


own material interests' . 

He also gave a warning of 
the lowering of professional 

standards which aright come 
from proceeding too for with 
advertising. Sotiritors would 
effectively be led into tairfry 
clients from each other, and 
becoming no different from 
“market traders". 

He urged sotiritors to call a 
halt to farther advertising, 
whatever the pressures under 
the “guise of co mp etitio n and 
what is said to be consumer 
protection". 

Before long soEdtore would 
be boasting, not only that they 
coedd do their work better titan 
a coDeane, but more cheaply. 
Doctors m the same way might 
find themselves advertising 
their consulting foes, or sur- 
geons their fees for operations. 

“Once yon open these dikes, 
the erosion of professional 
standards as we know them 
cannot be prevented," Lord

The increase was 50 percent 
in the year up to 1985. and the 
latest total is 1,400 compared 
with 20,600 men. 

But the statistics also show a 
dramatic increase in women 
assistant solicitors: in 1984/85 
the proportion was one in 
three compared with one in 
four the year before 

One explanation is that 
more women are retu rni n g to 
work. The increase in women 
with practising certificates ex- 
ceeds that for those admitted 
onto the tolL “This is highly 
suggestive of women returning 
to private practice or at least 
seeking to do so," the society 
says. 

It appears that many 
women have not become part- 
ners because they have token 
time off to have children art d 
returned to their careers at a 
later stage. 

But the survey dfo pf fc the 
myth that women stay away 
for long periods to have 
children, and that they are 
forced to specialize in fields 
such as family law or 
conveyancing. 

For those who take mater- 
nity leave rather than a longer 
break in their c areers , the 
average time off is 5.24 
months, and 2.43 months for 
those who are partners. Most 
returned to the same job but 
only half to the wnw hours. 

Litigation is the favourite 
specialization for women, fol- 
lowed by probate and trust 
work. The survey saystfaatthis 
could be because trust work is 
more easily combined with 
flexible hours. 

For women' under 35 the 
picture is very different: litiga- 
tion is still popular but many 
are moving into new areas 
previously closed to them, 
such as shipping litigation, 
building or property. A num- 
ber are also specializing in 
company commercial work. 


New leads 
in £ 26 m 
gold raid 

By Our Crime Reporter 

New arrests and raids are 
expected in the next few days 
fry 'Scotland Yard detectives 
leading the hunt for the gold 
and valuables taken in the £26 
million Brinks-Mat robbery. 

Police now suspect that 
bullion from the robbery was 
converted into cash and 
moved overseas. They areako 
investigating the possibility 
that properties were bought to 
conceal the money and, in 
some cases, cash from the 
proceeds was used as collateral 
to generate money for legiti- 
mate business interests. 

Last week a London solic- 
itor and a second man were 
charged in connection with 
the assets from the robbery. . 

Senior officers have forecast 
that they may be dose to a 
breakthrough in the long- 
running search for the routes 
by which gold disappeared 

Since the robbery in 
November 1983, at a high- 
security warehouse dose to 
Heathrow Airport, Scotland 
Yard has been running a big 
operation to recover stolen 
gold. Officers from the Flying 
Squad and other specialist 
units, inducting the Yard's 
criminal intelligence team 
Cl 1. have been targeting the 
routes used to launder the 
gold. 

In December 1984 two men 
were sentenced for their part 
in the robbery after a security 
guard at the warehouse admit- 
ted helping to arrange the raid 
and became a key police 
informant. 

Earlier this year Kenneth 
Ncrye, a Kent businessman, 
was given 14 years’ imprison- 
ment for his role in disposing 
of the bullion.Two others were 
convicted with him. 

A series of cases involving 
other individuals, including 
Mr John Palmer, a West 
Country jeweller, are awaiting 
trial. 


British financier 
key to drug link 

By Stewart Tendler, Crime Reporter 


A British-bom financier is 
firing under armed guard in 
the United States as a key 
informant m a transatlantic 
investigation into a mufti- 
million pound network 
laundering profits from the 
London underworld and Ma- 
fia drag syndicates. 

This week in Florida senior 
■ members of the Drug Enforce- 
ment Agency will unveil the 
role of the informant, Shaun 
P. Murphy; a second British 
financial figure and the story 
of how a special Scotland 
Yard team looking at or- 
ganized crime led the Ameri- 
cans to a potential 
breakthrough in their fight 
against drug traffickers. 

The Yard team was formed 
18 months ago by Deputy 
Assistant Commissioner 
Brian Worth and came across 
a network of shell companies 
on both sides of the Atlantic as 
detectives searched for the 
proceeds front the £26 million 
Brinks-Mat robbery. 

The British investigators 
have been working in the Isle 
of Man, the British Vagin 
Islands, and AnguiDa- Sworn 
in locally as special constables 
some of their travel costs have 
been met fry the Americans 
because of the value of the 
work to the Drug Enforcement 
Agency. 

The financial network used 
to launder criminal profits is 
believed to include accounts 
of companies in the City of 
London, Hong Kong, Singa- 
pore, Panama, France and 
Luxembourg. Detectives have 
found links between British - 
criminals and organized crime 
in the US. 

Working from material 
thrown up by the Yard officers 
in an investigation called Op- 
eration Cougar the Americans 
formed their own taskforce 
and have uncovered a net- 
work which. indudes Boston, 
Chicago and New York as well 
as Florida. 


The British operation began 
in the Isle of Man' when 
; lawyer called Patrick. Di- 
amond, aged 37. was arrested 
on charges of handling stolen 
moneys He was given bail on 
condition thal.be helped po- 
lice and he travelled to Florida 
with a Yard escort. 

.- In the US he worked under- 
cover with Drag Enforcement 
Agency men before giving 
evidence to a grand jury. He 
was later sentenced to serve 
nine months in prison and 
fined £10,000 by an Isle of 
Man court. 

After British police went out 
to the British Virgin Islands 
Mr Murphy, aged 33, and 
managing director of a firm 
called Financial Management 
Trust, was charged with assist- 
ing in the commission of 
offences which contravened 
US drag laws. 

Mr Murphy, who began his 
career as a chartered accoun- 
tant in the Isle of Man went to 
the -British Virgin Islands in 
1977. Hcwas given haD by the 
local court. 

Later the case against him 
was dropped because he was 
working with Yard officers 

He was flown out of the 
island s by the enforcement 
agency in a chartered aircraft 
to Florida this summer. Since 
then he has been living in safe 
houses under aimed guard 
and working with drugs 
investigators. 

Last - week in Florida six 
men were arrested by drug 
enforcement men from the 
American operation on 
charges involving more than 
£22 million and 100,0001b of 
cannabis. 

On the British Virgin Is- 
lands officers from Scotland 
Yard have looked at a number 
of financial institutions in an 
investigation which has now 
uncovered hundreds of shell 
companies and accounts 
stretching across the world. 


Good Hotel Guide 


Stewed tea at Cliveden 


An entire chapter of The 
Good ffotel Guide, 1997 in 
devoted to an attack on 
Cliveden, former home of the 
As tor family, which this year 
became the most expensive 
hotel in Britain outside 
London- The cheapest rooms 
cost £150 a night for bed and 
breakfast 

The growing anti- American 
bias among hoteliers is also 1 
singled oat for criticism. Mr 
Hilary Rubinstein, the editor, 
says that he experienced this 
trend at Cliveden. The trend 
was “as distasteful as anti- 
Semitism or mindless prej- 
udice against women or blacks 
or gays’*. , __ 

The man who showed Mr 
and Mis .Rubinstein to theft 
room volunteered the opinion- 
that Americans were just a hit 
of trouble. “I have no idea 
what offences they had per- 
petrated to cause him to anr 
this prejudice, but If aa Ameri- 
can visitor had protested voeff- 
eroosty at the kind of inept

service thaf we experienced 

that weekend, bnDy for him*" 

There is a detailed explana- 
tion of why the Rubinsteins 
did not eqjby theft stay at 
Cliveden, in spite of its glori- 
ons location overlooking die 
Thames 

Their complaials range 
from stewed aad lukewarm tea 
to overcharging, slow and 
incompetent service and an 
intolerably hot hotel room. 

Mr Rubinstein adds: “In 
general, we don’t bold with 
kuockfag hotels. Oar reason 
for writing at sack length 
about this faulty Rolls-Royce 
is that the place, like no other 
British hotel, brings to nr 
heritage. “ 

The guide, which covers 
more than 1,100 hotels, guest 
houses, farmhouse hotels and 
fans fa 20 counties encourages 
"civil resistance" by anti- 
service chaige campaigners.

Savage call to improve 
maternity services 


Mrs Wendy Savage, the 
birth rights campaigner, yes- 
terday urged obstetricians, 
midwives and women to unite 
to improve maternity ser- 
vices. 

“The establishment of a 
study group by the Royal 
College of Obstetricians and 
Gynaecologists might enable 
women to voice their requests 
in a forum which could iw»d to 
change," she saifL 
Mrs Savage makes the call 
in a book in which she attacks 
as a “terrible waste of NHS 
funds’* ber suspension from 
the London Hospital, east 
London, and the inquiry into 


allegations of incompetence. 

She said that relations be- 
tween GPs and obstetricians 
had been damaged, women 
had not had the same choice, 
especially if they wanted to see 
a woman obstetrician, and the 
reputation of the hospital the 
medical school and the doc- 
tors involved had suffered. 

The book, published 10 
days after Mrs Savage re- 
turned to work after being 
cleared of incompetence, tells 
of the manoeuvres which led 
to her 15-month suspension.

Horizon offers cheap 
holidays in Majorca 


Horizon, one of the three 
largest lour operators, enters 
the latest cut-price holiday 
war today, reducing the price 
of 50.000 holidays in Majorca 
by 10 per cent. 

The company is cutting the 
cost of holidays at the resort 
□ext summer by up to £40, 
after Thomson Holidays of- 
fered a million low-cost holi- 
days in the sun. through its 
subsidiary. Skytours. 

The discount covers 50.000 
holidays featured in its two 
brochures. Summer Sun and 
Villas and Apartments. The 
holidays must be booked be- 
fore the end of December, and 


taken between May 1 and 
June 25. 

Anyone who has already 
booked for Majorca during 
this period will also receive 
tbc discount. 

Mr David Cockerton. 
managing director, said that 
Horizon sold 200.000 holi- 
days during the first week of 
the launch of its brochures out 
of a total of one million 
holidays it will offer in 1987. 

An offer of 1 .000 holidays in 
Majorca and Ibiza at 1966 
prices of £53 for two weeks, 
was sold out within 20 min- 
utes. Horizon said. 


Sugar 6 no 
danger to 
health or 
weight’ 

An official United States 
report which claims that sugar 
does not make people fat or 
damage their health is befog 
studied by Government health 
leaders. 

The report the most com- 
prehensive ever andertaken, 
was carried out by a medical 
taskforce set up by the X’S 
Food and Drag Administra- 
tion (FDA). 

The taskforce found (bat 
while sugar does coo tribute to 
tooth decay, "there Is 'no 
co Delusive evidence that it » a 
hazard to the general public". 

Dr Allan Forbes, of the 
FDA fa Washington, said: 
“We can now state categori- 
cally that there is no eridepoe 
at all to fink sugar with 
obesity, diabetes, high bipod 
pressure, hyperactivity < or 
heart disease" 

The Government is ex- 
pected to announce soon the 
members of its own committee 
of inquiry into sugar, part of 
the Committee on the Medical 
Aspects of Health (Coma).! 

A Coma report published fa 
1982 said it saw no reason to 
reduce sugar consumption in 
Britain. However a report, by 
the nnofftcia] National Ad- 
visory Committee on Nu- 
tritional Education, published 
a year earlier, said consump- 
tion should be reduced. 

Annual United Kingdom 
sugar consumption is about 
801b per person. 

Mr Charles Lunge, chair- 
man of the Sugar Bureau, 
which represents sugar manu- 
facturers. said: “The report 
confirms what we have known 
fora very long time, thaf sugar 
is safe and does not cause any 
diseases, other than contribut- 
ing to dental decay along with 
other carbohydrates." 

Mrs Edwin* Currie, Under 
Scretary of State for Health 
and Social Security, said: 
“What we have always said is 
that there is no such thing as 
one particular bad food. It is 
how much you eat of it."

A 









MPs launch campaign 
for 10% increase 
in housing body funds 


A nationwide campaign 
seeking w increase the level of 
government spending on the 
voluntary housing movement 
will be launched from the 
House of Commons today by 
senior politicians from the 
Conservative. Labour and 
Alliance parties. 

The campaign, led by Mr 
John Cunningham, the Oppo- 
sition environment spokes- 
man. is calling for a 10 per 
cent increase in the 
Government's budget for 
housing associations in 1987- 
88, to enable them to tackle 
chronic housing problems 
more effectively. 

Accompanying the cam- 
paign is the publication of a 
report by the National Federa- 
tion of Housing Associations, 
the central representative and 
negotiating body for all hous- 
ing associations, entitled 
Housing : a countrywide 
problem. 

The report provides de- 
tailed evidence of increasing 
homelessness, overcrowding 
and serious disrepair through- 
out England and Wales, and 
the need to stimulate the 
private rented sector as called 
for by The Times in the Home 
Front campaign. 

The report issued a warning 


By Michael Dynes 

that "if we do not save our 
older housing, many areas will 
reach the point where the 
expensive alternative of 
demolition is the only answer. 
If we postpone major repairs 
now. the cost of moderniza- 
tion later will be for higher." 

The report also criticizes 
last year's decision by the 



Department of the Environ- 
ment and the Housing 
Corporation to concentrate 
funding for housing associ- 
ations in 80 key regions such 
as Liverpool. Birmingham, 
Leeds and London, designated 
as "stress areas" where the 
combined effect of urban 
deprivation, unemployment 
and racial tension is greatest. 

As a result of that decision, 
83 per cent of government 
funding for housing associ- 
ations now goes to stress areas, 
while the rest of the country is 
left with 17 per cent of the 
total budget, a decline of 10 
per cent over previous years. 


Cut-backs crisis 
for private groups 


In contrast to our European 
neighbours, housing associ- 
ations account for a mere 2.5 
per cent of Britain's homes 
(Michael Dynes writes). 

Nevertheless, more than 
one million people in England 
and Wales live in about 
550,000 homes, all of which 
have been reclaimed from 
dereliction or built from 
scratch by more than 2.000 
bousing associations. 

That laudable achievement 
stands as a testimony to the 
eflicacy of private initiative 
and the judicious application 
of public finance. 

Today, however, housing 
associations are facing crisis. 
Not only are they unable to 
satisfy the growing demand 
for their services from the 
young, unemployed, single; 
disabled and elderly, but they 
also face the prospect of 
sustaining huge reversals in 
their housing programmes be- 
cause of successive annual 
declines in funding. 

In 1982*83 loans from the 
Housing Corporation, the 
main source of finance for 
housing associations, ex- 
ceeded £927 million. By 1986- 
87 that figure had fallen to 
£660 million. 

The decline in local 
authority loans has been 
equally severe, from £456 
million in 1977-78 to £111 
million in 1986-87. more than 
75 per cent in 10 years, 

.As Mr Richard Best, direc- 
tor of the National Federation 
of Housing Associations, is at 
pains to point out. "because so 
much money goes to projects 
already being built, the cuts 
have been made on future 
building and rehabilitation 
programmes.'' 

Consequently, the number 
of new homes that can be 
provided by housing associ- 
ations has shrunk drastically. 
Since 1982-83 they have had 
to reduce their programmes by 
30 per cent in real terms, 
which has meant a decline 
from 40.000 to 20.000 new 
housing projects each year. 


Ironically, the need for 
housing association homes 
has never been more urgent 
As housing starts in the pri- 
vate and public sector have 
fallen below levels attained in 
the 1970s. and while an es- 
timated 25 per cent of I 
Britain's housing stock is in 
need of "substantial repairs", 
there is a desperate need for 
more investment in housing. 

In spite of the overwhelm- 
ing popularity of the present 
government's righi-to-buy leg- 
islation, there is a consensus 
across the political spectrum 
that Britain needs more 
homes for rent, particularly 
for those sectors of the popula- 
tion for whom neither owner- 
occupied nor council housing 
can provide the answer. - 

Hie decline of the private 
rented sector has left an 
accommodation vacuum 
which housing associations 
are ideally suited to filL 

During the past 10 years 
they have accumulated 
considerable expertise in 
building, buying and rehabili- 
tating derelict properties, and 
are eager to expand their work 
into Older urban areas. 

In Britain today there are at 
least 1 10.000 properties stand- 
ing idle for want of repair. 
Local authorities estimate that ; 
there are more than one 
million families on their wait- 
ing lists, and . about 175,000 
additional families present 
themselves to local authorities 
as homeless every year. 

In those circumstances, 
economies in housing finance 
are ephemeral What the 
Department of the Environ- 
ment manages to save on its 
annual budget for bousing 
associations, the Department 
of Health and Social Science 
has to pick up in increased 
housing benefits. 

Unlike spending on housing 
association rehabilitation 
programmmes. the cost of 
putting up homeless fomiles in 
hotels and guest houses leaves 
little to show for it. 


Putting a price on 
lord of the manor 

By Christopher Wanmn, Property Correspondent 


For people who cannot af- 
ford to buy the manor house of 
their choice, the title of Lord of 
the Manor comes more 
cheaply, and a forthcoming 
sale oltere bo less than 85 
lordships. 

The sale of lordships has 
become bis business la recent 
years, with rare and historic 
titles fetching more than 
£30.000. Most are no more 
than a set of documents which 
cannot be exported amd have to 
remain hi safekeeping. 

International interest b 
keen nevertheless, and the sale 
in London on November 11 is 
expected to yield some high 
prices, particularly for tire 
manors in the Irish Republic, 
which are believed to be the 
first Irish titles to be offered 
for many years. They belong to 
Lord Connanstoa. head of the 
undent Anglo-Irish family of 
Preston that originated in 
Lancashire la the thirteenth 
ce ntu r y . 

The five on offer are the 
Barony of Kells in Co Kil- 
kenny. granted to Earl 
Strong bow by Henry 11 la 
1169, Herbardeston, 
Bafcecadden and Ballymaden 
in Co Dublin, and Maydoa- 
haves h Co Meath. They 
faefode one of the oldest 
doc ume nts in the sale, dating 
back to 1 173. Interest fo these 
Is expected to come from the 
Untied Kingdom and the 
United States. Canada and the ' 
CwtfiBfn t i 

The other tides come from 
I and Wales, and the 
price is fikety for the ’ 


Lordship of SnodhiU, which 
has a ruined castle and in- 
cludes abort four acres of land. 

There is one of particular 
interest to American buyers. 
The Lordship of Hingham in 
Norfolk was mice owned by 
King Athebtan (921-94I),bet 
is more notable as the original 
home of the family of Abra- 
ham Lincoln, who emigrated 
to New England early m the 
seventeenth century. 

The Lordship of Kerdiston, 
also in Norfolk, has connec- 
tions with the poet Geoffrey 
Chaucer, and gives the owner 
the right to hold a market. It 
has records showiim the 
continuous descent of lords 
from il 90. 

prices for the tides will start 
at £6JKNk and the owners are 
entitled to call themselves lord 
or lady of the manor, apply for 
a coat of arms, and have their 
title inserted in their pass- 
ports, stationery, cutlery and 

**Lonl5hips0f the manor date 
back to Saxon times, and the 
system survived until the 
1920s when the tenancies 
granted by lords of the manor 
were made into freeholds m 

the hands of the tenants. , 

At the same time the ford or 
the manor, who held his title 
direct from the Own, was; 
deprived of most of his ancient j 
rights and privileges, which 
nutted from the right to 
extract minerals to droit de 
frinevr, under which the lord 
had the right to appropriate 
any village maiden in; his 
ludship on her wedding night. 


The report argues that in- 
creased funding for stress 
areas at the expense of the rest 
of the country foils to 
acknowledge that in many 
parts of England and Wales 
not so designated "housing 
conditions are equally 
appalling". 

The campaign will be con- 
ducted simultaneously from 
London and eight "non-stress 
areas" with chronic bom 
problems, such as Oxf< 
Durham and Norfolk. 

It will also attempt to 
highlight the consequences of 
the 30 per cent reduction in 
funding from the Housing 
Corporation since 1977, and 
the 75 per cent reduction in 
local authority finance for 
housing associations since 
1978. 

According to Mr Richard 
Best, director of the National 
Federation of Housing Associ- 
ations, the combined decline 
in Housing Corporation and 
local authority funding has 
meant that approvals for new 
schemes are down from 
6 1,400 in 1977-78 to 19,700 in 
1986-87.

Single pension expected to rise by 80 p a week 


By Jill Sherman 
A 2.1 per cent rise in 
pensions and other social 
security benefits, to lake effect 
from next April, is expected to 
be announced shortly. 

The rise will increase the 
basic state pension fora single 
person- by about 80p, from the 
present £38.70 a week. It will 
reflect the 21 per cent rise in 
the retail price index from 
January to September, an- 
nounced last Friday, and 
comes after an interim 1.1 per 
cent increase last July. 

Pensions for married cou- 
ples will rise by at least £130, 
frpm the present £61.95, hav- 
ing risen by 65p in July. 


The two-stage increase is 
the result of a change from 
November to April in the 
timing of the annual benefit 
upraung, as part of the new 
social security reforms. 

The Government is legally 
bound to raise pensions and 
some other benefits in line 
with the retail price index. But 
this year, because of the two- 
stage increase, pensioners will 

get rnarginaty more than the 3 

per cent annual rise in prices. 

Supplementary benefit 
rates, calculated on a slightly 
different basis, are expected to 
rise by 60p from £29.80 for a 
single person, and by 95p to 
£49.35 for a couple: 


Pensioners' organizations 
have condemned the pro- 
jected rises as inadequate and 
say they foil to reflea the 10.5 
per cent rise in earnings. 

But a spokesman for the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security said yesterday 
that the rises always reflected 
the rate of inflation. 

Cold weather pay 
plan ‘unworkable 9 

Government proposals to 
pay £5 a week to the elderly on 
low incomes to help with 
heating bills during severe 
weather were criticized yes- 
terday by Age Concern, the- 
pensioners' organization. 


The organization claimed 
that the scheme was unwork- 
able because the fail in tem- 
peratures needed to bring the 
benefit into, operation was 
unrealistic, affecting only 
■select parts of Britain. 

Under the proposals, pay- 
ments will be made to the 
elderly on supplementary 
benefit if, in a seven-day 
period, the average tem- 
perature foils below minus 13 
centigrade. 

Age Concern said that 
Meteorological Office figures 
show that last February, the 
coldest for 40 years, only two 
thirds of Britain would have 


benefited from severe weather 
payments. 

Large areas of Wales, the 
South-west and North-east 
did not foil below minus 13 
degrees. 

Mr David Hobman, direc- 
tor of Age Concern England, 
said: "Severe weather should 
be declared over the whole 
country when it is cold rather 
than relying on scientific data 
which will be grossly unjust in 
its operation. The Goverment 
claims its new system is fairer. 
Age Concern believes it will 
simply be cheaper." 

Last winter, help with heat- 
ing bills was left to local 
discretion.

Students set to discuss 
boycott of lecturer who 
wrote for The Times 


. Oxford University students 
roe meeting this week to 
discuss the case or Mr David 
Selboume, the Ruskin College 
lecturer who for the last ax 
months has been boycotted 

for writing an article for The 

• Times. 

■ Mr Sclboumc is taking the 
trade union-affiliated insriiu- 

... .don to court because it refuses 
to give him a written commit- 
ment to academic freedom 
. over his treatment by fellow 
.. lecturers and students after he 

- wrote the article. 

.. Such is the concern about 
i»u« raised by the Selbourae 
affair that Mr George Walden, 
- ' the minister for higher educa- 
lion, has written to the college 
5 K^ing an explanation for its 
.-■actions. Ruskin's academic 
: : ‘r advisers, who are drawn from 
.. I the Oxford colleges, are alas to 
hold a meeting to decide their 

■ approach to the situation. 

What has come under the 
closest scrutiny is Ruskin’s 
standing as an academic body 
and its relationship with the 

- trade unions which form its 
- - executive council. 

Mr Selboume's troubles 
started at the beginning of last 

■ summer term when students 
began boycotting his lectures 
because they claimed he had 
’’scabbed” by contributing an 
article on the Militant ten- 
dency in Liverpool in The 

■ Times on March 26, the last 
day of the previous terra.

and has been denied a specific 
commitment to academic

expected a gradual subsidence

at a college where he has 
taught for 20 years. Because 
the matter is in the hands of 

. lawyers, official comment at 


By Howard Foster 

Ruskin is scarce but there is 
certainly no shortage of pri- 
vate expression of concern. 

Although the Selboume af- 
fair is only now the subject ofa 
debate at the Oxford univer- 
sity Students' Union on 
Wednesday, this is not, 
according to the motion's 
sponsors, a reflection of 
intellectual apathy among the 
colleges. 

“The new term is still young 
and many people just have not 
heard of the Selboume case,” 
Mr Andrew Adonis, a Jesus 

6 People are asking 
whether Mr 
Selbonrne’s rights to 
express himself how 
and where he likes 
are being protected f 

College lecturer and proposer 
of a condemnatory motion at 
the students' union, said. 

Mr Adonis went on: “As 
time goes on, the issue be- 
comes more widely-discussed. 
What people are asking is 
whether Mr Selboume's rights 
to express himself bow and 
where he likes are being 
protected. It is a vital issue. 
Ruskin may not officially be 
pari of the university but it 
uses the facilities and is a valid 
cause for concern.” 

The university's Hebdom- 
adal Council has already met 
and discussed the, Selboume 
case. Although its members 
met in private, there is no 
secret that fears were ex- 
pressed abouL the cherished 
ideals of the freedom of the 
academic to write where he 
likes. 

Professor AH Halsey, of 
Nuffield College, sits on the 
Hebdomadal Council and is 
also one or Ruskin’s academic 
advisers. Although confined 


to bed at present with flu he 
has been following the 
Selboume debate closely and 
will meet his fellow advisers to 
discuss how the Ruskin 
authorities are handling the 
affair very soon. 

Professor Halsey said: “I am 
unhappy about the situation. I 
believe it is the first time that 
such an issue has come up at 
Ruskin. 

“The educational advisers 
will meet and onr concern will 
be to advise Ruskin as to what 
it should da” 

One of the chief student 
instigators of action against 
Mr Selboume was Mr John 
Austin. Ironically, Mr 
Selboume taught him and 
even gave Mr Austin a ref- 
erence to enable him to start 
his studies in politics, philos- 
ophy and economics at St 
Peter’s ibis term. 

Mr Austin accused Mr 
Selboume of “scabbing” by 
writing the article in The 
Times and helped to organize 
the boycott which left the 
lecturer with empty rooms 
during the summer term. 

Mr Austin saidi“SeIbourne 
offended people’s sensibilities 
by writing in The Times. 

“Academic freedom is an 
important issue but so is the 
feeling of people who come to 
Ruskin with strong trade 
union convictions and who 
take il very personally when 
one of the lecturers writes in a 
newspaper which is the sub- 
ject of trade union action.” 

Mr Austin called on Mr 
Selboume to “repent or 
resign”. In fact, Mr Selboume 
has left the college claiming 
that it has repudiated his 
contract by making conditions 
for his teaching intolerable. 

The controversy has raised 
questions of the academic 
standing of Ruskin College.

Asbestos 
waste site 
standards 
criticized 

By Angefia Johnson. 

A waste disposal company 
( has been criticized for 
“imperfections” in its manage- 
ment of an asbestos waste 
dump in Hertfordshire. 

A report calls for big 
improvements in health and 
safety at the toxic waste site 
run by Cleanaway (UK) at 
Broxbouroebury Park Quarry, 
Cock Lane, Hoddesdon. 
These are necessary, the re- 
port states, if the company is 
to continue dumping asbestos 
waste af the pit. 

The 1 1 recommendations 
include tighter security to stop 
children climbing into the 
quarry and playing on the 
asbestos waste; soaking the 
waste and the tipping area 
with water before the waste is 
discharged; regular inspec- 
tions by council officials; a 
thorough cleaning of lorries 
before they leave the site; 
improved supervision of the 
operation and a comprehen- 
sive monitoring system. 

Hertfordshire County 
Council commissioned the 
£4£09 report in September 
after a public protest against 
the dumping of 100,000 tonnes 
of asbestos-contaminated 
building rubble near a special 
school and a large housing 
estate. 

The reports by Dr John 
Cook, an independent consul- 
tant scientist at Harwell Lab- 
oratories in Oxfordshire, said 
thatthe site ms no danger to 
public health if the improve- 
ments were made. 

The report will be consid- 
ered at a special' council 
planning meeting on October 
27 

Cleanaway, of Brentwood, 
Essex, has voluntarily stopped 
die movement of asbestos 
waste to the site until the 
p lanning committe niaites its 
decision. So tor about 35,000 
tonnes of the waste have been 
buried at the dump. 


Local buses: 1 

Roads opened up 
to competition 
in radical reform 


A week from nowthe Transport Act 1985 will come into 
effect, and competition is intended to sweep through lo- 
cal bus services. But will il? Rodney Cowton, Transport 
Correspondent, considers the prospects 


Britain’s local bus services, 
outside London, on which 
over four billion passenger 
journeys are made each year, 
next Sunday begin their most 
radical shake-up for 50 years. 

It is hoped that it will 
reverse the trend which bas 
seen the bus share of total 
travel toll from 39 percent to 8 
per cent over the past 30 years. 

Until now there has been 
virtually no competition on 
bus routes because any change 
of route or challenge to an 
existing operator had to be 
specifically approved, usually 
against the opposition of the 
operator. In practice applica- 
tions were generally rejected. 

But from October 26 com- 
petition is to be encouraged, 
and after a three-month initial 
period any bus-owner who can 
meet safety requirements will 
be able to operate on any route 
'he chooses. 

That is the date on which 
the bus-regulation provisions 
of the 1985 Traffic Act take 
effect. These are designed to 
improve services to travellers 
and to reduce the £500 million 
subsidies which are paid on 
unprofitable services. 

Local bus services are di- 
vided into two groups, those 
that are profitable and those 
that are subsidized 

As part of a process of 
phasing in competition, those 
who wanted to operate profit- 
able routes from next Sunday 
had to register their plans by 
the end of last February, and 
1,500 operators, including 
about 200 new ones, did so. 

The Department of Trans- 
port estimates that those plans 


accounted for about 70 per 
cent of all existing routes. The 
remainder of the routes are the 
subsidized ones. 

All summer prospective op- 
erators have been bidding for 
subsidies for operating 
particular routes, with the 
local authorities, who win pay 
the subsidy generally award- 
ing the contract to the op- 
erator who sought the lowest 
subsidy. 

Operators have known for 
eight months which of the 
profitable, or registered routes 
they would be working, but 
decision-taking on the sub- 
sidized routes has been 
continuing right up to the last 
moment 

Although in Glasgow, where 
operators jumped the gun by 
starting their services some 
weeks ago. there have been 
queues of competing buses on 
central roads, the general im- 
pression in the industry is that 
in most places the impact of 
competition initially will not 
be dramatic. 

The shire counties are said 
to be finding that they are able 
to negotiate services on the 
basis of subsidies that are up 
to 25 per cent less than they 
had expected. 

The experience of the pas- 
senger transport executives in 
the large conurbations is more 
varied, with subsidy reduc- 
tions said to be varying be- 
tween about 10 and 50 per 
cent. Mr John Moore, Sec- 
retary of State for Transport, 
claimed on Friday that the 
savings to ratepayers would be 
“massive.”

Editor ‘wrong’ to 
give in to pressure 


Mr Donald Trelford, editor 
of TheOhserrer, was wrong to 
give in to a demand by prim 
workers not to publish a book 
review by Mr Bernard Levin, 
the Press Council said 
yesterday. 

It upheld a complaint by Mr 
Ronald Spark, of The’ 
Rotyngs, Rotringdeao. Brigh- 
ton, that it was improper of 
the editor of The Observer to 
suppress the review. 

Print workers at The Ob- 
server had refused to produce 
the newspaper if the editor 
tried to print the review by Mr 
Levin of a biography of 
Augustus Hare, a Victorian 
eccentric. 

They objected to his review 
because Mr Levin also worked 
for The Times with which 
their union. The National 
Graphical Association, was in 
dispute. 

Mr Trelford said there was 
no question in his mind or the 
management's that the ma- 
chine room chapel coukl be 
persuaded to drop its ban on 
Mr Levin. That was the 
weekend of bitter clashes on 
the picket line at Wapping. 
where The Times was printed. 

The editor understood the 
print workers’ position. He 
knew, too. as he told the Press 
Council, that because his own 
newspaper would shortly an- 
nounce its own new priming 
arrangements good relations 
with its printers were particu- 
larly necessary at that time. 

The loss of revenue if The 
Observer toiled to appear that 
week would be more than 
£700.000. „ . . 

The Press Council in its 
adjudication said, it was 
understandable that Mr 
Trelford should decide that 


his duty was to bring the paper 
OUL 

The Press Council, how- 
ever, believed that decision 
was wrong. It reiterated its 
view that the freedom of the 
press depended essentially on 
the right of an editor to 
exercise an unfettered and 
independent discretion about 
what he should or should not 
publish. 

Il believed that when an 
editor bowed to pressure or 
threats from any source, he 
weakened the position of any 
editor of any newspaper who 
might face such a threat. 

The Press Council under- 
stood the problem an editor 
freed at a critical time when 
his choice was between 
removing matter which in his 
judgement should appear in 
his paper or risking that his 
paper would not appear at alL 
It believed, however, that the 
principle of press freedom 
required an editor in those 
circumstances not to yield to 
the demand to remove matter 
from his paper despite the 
consequent cost, and that he 
should be supported by his 
proprietor. 

The complaint against The 
Observer was upheld. 

• It was not unreasonable 
or improper for two col- 
umnists of The Sunday Tele- 
graph to describe the 
Westland helicopter company 
as “insignificant” and “pint- 
sized" in the context of the 
political issue they were 
^iymgdng , the Press Council 
said. . ^ 

It rejected a complaint by 
Mr L Harris, a former West- 
land employee, of Grosvenor 
Road, St Albans, Hertford- 
shire^

WORLD SUMMARY 


Mass expulsion 
after drug arrests 

Fans (AFP) — France has expelled JOI Malians, three- 
quarters of them arrested for drug smuggling, border police 
said. 

They said the total included Malians who had 
refused to leave the country after being formally expelled 
by French courts. Further expulsions would follow, the 
police added. 

The Malians were driven to Orly airport in police vans 
and put on a plane chartered by the French Interior 
Ministry and bound for Bamako, the Malian capital. 

Witnesses said several of the Malians were forcibly 
taken aboard after protesting that they would be victims of 
repression If they returned to Mali. 

Mens Bill backed 

Washington — The most far-reaching revision of United 
States immigration laws in 20 years has received final 
Congressional approval and will be signed into law by 
President Reagan (Christopher Thomas writes). 

The landmark legislation, already approved by the 
House of Representatives, was approved by the Senate by 
63 votes to 24. It prohibits the hiring of illegal aliens and 
gives amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants who have 
lived continuously in the US since before January L, 1982.

Abu Dhabi (Renter) — The charred bodies of Ove more crew 
members of the Panama-flag tanker Five Brooks, which 
was attacked by Iran in the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, 
have been found in the ship. Shipping sources said that the 
dicsovery brought the confirmed death toll to 10. 

The number of deaths is the worst on a civilian ship 
caught np in the Gulf War since 16 died in the tanker

Summit offer 
forces Nato to 
ponder nuclear 
balance issue 

From Frederick Boimart, Brussels 


The nuclear balance in 
Europe will be the main 
concern of Nato's defence 
ministers meeting at Glen- 
eagles tomorrow and 
Wednesday. 

-They will consider the 
significance of the solution 
proposed at the Reykjavik 
summit of a complete with- 
drawal of all intermediate- 
cangs nuclear forces (INF) 
from Europe and their reduc- 
tion to 100 warheads each in 
Soviet Asia and the United 
States. 

All defence ministers of the 
Nato member countries, ex- 
cept Iceland and France, 
participate in this regular six- 
monthly meeting of the 
nuclear planning group. 

General Bernard Rogers, 
Supreme Allied Commander. 
Europe, the other two major 
Nato commanders, as well as 
the chiefs of defence staffs and 
the chairman of the Nato 
military committee, will also 
be present. Attendance ax this 
highly secret gathering is re- 
stricted, and to enable partici- 
pants to exchange ideas freely 
no records are kept. 

Mr Caspar Weinberger, the 
US Secretary of Defence, will 
brief his colleagues about the 
summit, a senior Nato official 
said, as well as about the 
Geneva arms control nego- 
tiations. 

“The Europeans are very 
interested in an INF agree- 
ment, but its conclusion must 
not create new instability from 
missiles of shorter range,'’ a 
senior European diplomat at 
Nato said. 

He was referring to new, 
highly mobile SS 21, SS 22 


and SS 23 missiles which can 
hit Western Europe from East 
Germany. Czechoslovakia 
and the western Soviet Union. 

General Rogers, who was 
reported to have protested to 
Mr Weinberger about inad- 
equate consultation concern- 
ing the proposed INF 
agreement said last week that 
if a zero solution were reached 
with the longer-range missiles, 
“that needed to be coupled 
with an attempt to strike a 
balance on conventional 
forces as weD as on shorter- 
range INF forces". 

He will give a progress 
report to the Gleneagles meet- 
ing on the reduction of the 
nuclear stockpile in Europe. 
The nuclear planning group 
meeting at Montebello in 1983 
had decided to reduce it from 



endofl988. 

All Nike/H ercuies nuclear 
air defence missiles and man- 
portable atomic , demolition 
munitions have been phased- 
ouL “The stockpile is ax its 
lowest level for 20 years and 
will continue to go down." the 
Nato official said.

US Defence Secretary, on 
Saturday refuted claims by a 
Nato genera] who claimed to 
have been inadequately con- 
sulted on the Reykjavik sum- 
mit. 

He answered accusations 
made by General Ha ns- Jo- 
achim Mack in the name of 
General Bernard Rogers, the 


Supreme Alfred Commander, 
last week. Mr Weinberger said 
“complete consultations" had 
taken place and that the views 
pm by President Reagan to Mr 
Gorbachov at Reykjavik were 
not incompatible with the 
view of General Rogers, be- 
cause the President's main 
point was the need for a bal- 
anced defence. 

He said the same ideas bad 
been put forward at Reykjavik 
as were beard at every Nato 


meeting. Lord Carrington, the 
Secretary-Genera) of Nato, 
will no doubt be underlining 
much the same point in his 
visit here, which begins today. 

Mr Weinberger saw Presi- 
dent Cossiga of Italy on 
Saturday and spent several 
hours talking to Signor 
Betti no Craxi. the Prime Min- 
ister. and Senator Giovanni 
Spadolinx. the Minister for 
Defence. Mr Weinberger 
looked tired, which was said to 


be due to stomach upsets 
which he and other members 
of his delegation bad been 
suffering after stops in India 
and Pakistan. 

An official spokesman an- 
swered questions on the sub- 
ject with a “no comment", on 
the grounds that a statement 
might be taken to reflect badly 
on Pakistani cooking. Mr 
Weinberger spent Sunday in 
Tuscany with Senator 
Spadolini

Black families refuse to be moved 

Fate of 10,000 will test the 
sincerity of Pretoria pledge 


From Michael Hornsby, Brits* Transvaal 


More than 1.000 residents 
or the black shanty settlement 
outside this industrial town in 
the western Transvaal met in a 
church hall yesterday and 
resolved to resist a {dan to re- 
locate them 12 miles away. 

Those attending the meet- 
ing represented the great 
majority of 1,400 families — 
about 10.000 people — still 
living in the 55-year-old settle- 
mem. simply known as the 
Old Location, which the Gov- 
ernment wants to demolish 
and then redevelop as a 
whites-only suburb. 

More than a year and a half 
ago. the Government an- 
nounced that all forced re- 
movals were to be stopped, 
and the fete of the Old 
Location is seen as the first 
serious test of the sincerity of 
that pledge. 

“It was a good meeting. The 
spirit of the people is very 
high. 1 believe we are going to 
try to explore every avenue to 
stay here " said Mr Marshall 
Buys, a member of the “action 
committee" co-ordinating re- 
sistance to the removal who 
added that their first action 
would be a “stayaway" from 
wort: in Brits on Wednesday. 
"The whole of Brits industry 
will be dead,” he said 
confidently. 

Another member of the 
committee, Mr Simon Sepeng, 
who used to work at the Aim 
Romeo car factory in Brits 


until it closed down, s&kk “I 
can say for sure I am not going 
to Letblabilc. I can go there 
dead, maybe:" 

Leth labile is filename of the 
resettlement site where the 
authorities have erected hun- 
dreds of shiny tin shacks in the 
open veld. Some 5.000 of the 
15.000 people originally living 
at the Old Location were 
persuaded to move there last 
December and January. 

The new settlement is on 
the border of the nominally 
“independent" Bophutba- 
tswana tribal homeland. 

One reason for not wanting 
to go there is the fear that it 
could eventually be incor- 
porated into Bophuthatswana 
and that its inhabitants would 
then lose their South African 
citizenship. 

The Minister of Constitu- 
tional Development and Plan- 
ning. Mr Chris Heunis, 
contends that the Old Loca- 
tion is a slum and ntJeds to be 
demolished for reasons of 
hygiene. It would be too 
expensive, he maintains, to 
upgrade the housing and facil- 
ities' to an acceptable standard. 

The Old Location is cer- 
tainly a rough place, largely 
because of deliberate govern- 
ment neglect. No house of 
bricks and mortar has been 
built there since the 1930s. 
There is no drainage, no 
electricity, no tarred roads and 
no street lighting. There are 


bucket latrines, emptied twice 
aweek. 

Those who left in December 
and January were mostly 
wealthier residents who were 
paid financial compensation 
by the Government for their 
brick homes, which were 
demoVishedby the authorities 
to prevent squatting. 

The plots of several of these 
demolished homes have been 
tinned, by foe remaining res* . 
ktents, into memorial parts* 
in which gailyjiainicd lorry 
tyres serve as seats. 

Visible on a rocky hitt 
overlooking the Old Location 
is what many consider the real 
reason for the Government's 
wish to remove them: the neat 
houses and well-watered gar- 
dens of Ebndsnmd. a wcfl-io- 
do white suburb of Brits. 

“It is better that they should 
go." an Afrikaans-speaking 

resident of Bandsrend said 
yesterday, waving a hand in 
the direction of the black 
settlement. Did the blacks 
cause trouble ? "Not real 
trouble." he conceded. “But at 
weekends there are drinking 
parties and a lot. of noise." 

The Brits constituency has 
become marginal for the Gov- 
ernment and in the next 
general election could felt to 
the extreme right-wing 
Conservative Party of Dr 
Andries Trcurnich’t, which 
wants apartheid rigidly 
enforced. 


Shell threatens to withdraw 


Disinvestment moves by 
leading multinational compa- 
nies operating In Sooth Africa 
appeared to be intensifying at 
the weekend after a warning 
by Royal Dutch Shell the big- 
gest foreign oil company in 
Sooth Africa, that it would 
pull out unless the Govern- 
ment speeds np race reforms. 

Shell's chief executive is 
Sooth Africa. Mr John Wil- 
son. said there were no hn- 
mediate plans for withdrawal 
but the company was coming 
under tremendous pressure to 
do so. 

He said: “If the bottom line 
of Royal Dutch Shell is ad- 
versely affected international- 
ly the shareholders wflj have 
to reconsider their position.” 

Shell's warning was front-

newspapers yesterday, bat was 

not reported by the state- 
controlled South African 
Broadcasting Corporation.

be sold under another guise.

‘Problems remain’ on 


From A Correspondent 
Harare 

Leaders of Mr Robert 
Mugabe's ruling Zanu (PF) 
and Mr Joshua Nkomo's op- 
position Zapu parties have yet 
to iron outseveral outstanding 
problems before concluding 
an accord on unity. Mr Joseph 
Msika. the Zapu vice-presi- 
dent. said yesterday. 

Mr Msika. who did not 


identify the remaining diffi- 
culties. told The Times that 
agreements reached were “a 
hide bit premature and 
exaggerated". There had been 
no further unity talks and no 
meetings between the party 
heads since the Non-Aligned 
Movement meeting in Harare 
seven weeks ago. he said. 

It was announced on the eve 
of that meeting that a unity 
accord was imminent, leading

Peru’s guerrilla war 


Shining Path sets 
sights on south 


From A Correspondent, Lima 


President Garcia of Peru’s 
chances of snuffing out a six- 
year-old Andean insurgency' 
_ wd by the Sendero Lurainoso 
(Shining Path) Maoist 
organization hinges partially 
on how successfully his 
government can prevent the 
spread of subversive violence 
on the bleak plateau of Puno, 
in the far south of the country. 

Last week police uncovered 
what they claimed to be an 
assassination attempt against 
Sefior Garcia, who was sched- 
uled to visit Puno. A peasant 
woman carrying 34 sticks of 
dynamite was arrested in 
JuJraca, near the departmental 
capital of Puno, just before the 
presidential visit. 

I Although police may have 
exaggerated the threat to the 
President's life, 'there is no 
doubt that Shining Path has 
picked Puno as a major the- 
atre of operations. 

Most of the department of 
Puno lies 13.000 ft above sea 
level around Lake Titicaca, 
near the Bolivian frontier. It is 
among the most backward re- 
gions in the country, surviving 
on subsistence farming and 
cattle-raising, handicrafts and 
smuggling. 

The region was ravaged in 
1483-84 by the worst drought 
this century, followed by 
torrential rains and flooding 
this year. 

Shining Path's stronghold 
for the past six yean las been 
the south-central Andean 
mountains of Ayacucho, half- 
way between Puno and Lima. 
More than 9.000 people have 
died iii the conflict. .Although 
Shining Path cadres have been 
in the Puno region since 1982, 
Ihnr actions were sporadic. 

Since Sehor Garcia took 
office in mid-1985 their opera- 
tions began repeating the pat- 
ients which characterized 
their tactics in Ayacucho. 


peasant communities. Local 
authorities were harassed or. 
assassinated. 

Although army garrisons in 
the region have been reinforc- 
ed. the Government has not 
declared a state of emergency 
in Puno. which would allow 
the military to intervene 
against the guerrillas. 

The key issue is land re- 
form. A complex alliance be- 
tween the local Catholic 
Church, radical Marxist par- 
ties (not associated with Shin- ; 
ing Path) and peasant ] 
organizations is pushing for

Roving guenrilla bands be- 
in raiding isolated settie- 


gaq raiding isolated seiue- 
menis. police stations and 


massive land redistribution. 
Land invasions, some in- 
stigated by Shining Path, have 
already taken place. 

President Garria has prom- 
ised the redistribution of 1.85 
million acres to 400 peasant 
communities, affecting 43 
farm co-operatives. The orig- 
inal land reform fegislastion, 
dating tack to 1969, merely 
passed ownership from large 
landlords to former workers 
without adequately incor- 
porating the communities. 

But the local hierarchs of 
Senor Garcia’s party, Apra, 
are dragging their feet because 
they are dosdy associated 
with co-operatives’ manage- 
ments and former owners. 

The latest increase in 
subversive violence comes 
just a few weeks before 
municipal elections to be held 
on November 9. Shining Path ■ 
is violently opposed to elec- 
toral politics and has tra- 
ditionally mounted offensives 
to disrupt voting. 


Ortega appeal to UN 
over aid to Contras 


Managua (Reuter) - Presi- 
de™ Ortega of Nicaragua 
called yesterday for an urgent 
meeting of the UN Security 
Council following final ap- 
proval by the United States of 
new aid to rebels fighting his 
left-wing Government. 

- Sefior Onega told a news 
conference that President 
Reagan's signing into law 
yesterday of the 5100 million 

(£68 million} aid Bill was a 
"criminal" act that nsked 
involving US troops in all-out 
war in Central America. . 

it made the American Presi- 
dent an international outlaw, 
since it defied the wwid 
Own. which had ruled mat 
Washington's support for 
Contra rebels was illegal. 
Nicaragua was seeking the 


UN Security Council meeting 
“to remind the US of the 
obligation ii has as a signatory 
to the UN Charter and of the 
respect that is due to the 
World Court” in The Hague. 

Senor Ortega warned that 
any Americans venturing into 
Nicaragua risked the fete of 
two US fliers killed this month 
when their C 130 rebel supply 
plane was shot down by a 
Sandinista surface-to-air 
missile. 

“Everyone here must, be 
prepared so we can continue 
defeating the mercenaries and 
continue shooting down their 
planes.” he said.. 

The sole survivor Mr Eu- 
gene Hasenfus, aged 45, an 
American, is to face charges of 
ferrying arms to the rebels. 





*»W** •* ’ 



$ e*ar Ortega la animated mood as 

Council debate to condemn President Reagan- 


"terronst groups . 

Labor's campaign managers 
have decided that it might be a 
bit risky to expose Mr Hawke 
again to the profoundly con- 
servative Queensland elector- 
ate, so the task of federal 
cheer-leader was entrusted to 
Mr Bfll Hayden, the Foreign 
Minister, who is a Queens- 
lander. 

At yesterday's campaign 
launch, Mr Hayden made a 
few references to cronies of Sir 
Joh who bad done well odl of 
the association. They were 
discreet references, as the 
Premier has been quick of late 
to resort to litigation when his 
integrity has been impugned. 

One victim was Mr Alan 
Bond, the brewery magnate 
who reached an out-ofcourt 
settlement of $Aus400,000 
(£181,000) recently over an 
alleged libel of the premier by 
a television station owned by 
Mr Bond. 

Despite indications that 
support for Sir Joh is slipping, 
and that Labor has its best 
chance in years, an outright 
victory for Mr Warburton 
looks an outside possibility. 

The vote will be further split 
by a third party, the Liberals. 
The most probable outcome is 
that none of the three win 
have an overall majority. 


Mr Joan Ponce Emile, the 
Philippines Defence Minister, 
who - is seeking a tough ap- 
proach to rnmmimigf fnSBT- 
gents, yesterday said that if 
President Aquino asked for 
his resignation the whole Gov- 
ernment should be dissolved. 

His statement, on a radio 
phone-in programme, co- 
incided with the resumption of 
secret peace talks between the 
Government and rebels, which 
were suspended last month 
following the capture of Mr 
Rodolfo Salas, the alleged 
former chairman of foe oat-, 
la wed Communist Party. 

The Communist negotiators 
believe the capture was en- 
gineered by foe military to 
scuttle a possible break- 
through in the talks 

A listener, who telephoned

Portugal to 
boycott 
Jakarta 


discussions 






Jakarta (Reuter) — Portugal 
will boycott a meeting of 
European Community and 
South-East Asian foreign min- 
isters here today because of a 
dispute with Indonesia over 
East Timor, an EEC spokes- 
man confirmed yesterday. 

Liston, which joined the 
Community earlier this year 
along with Spain, does not 
recognize Indonesia’s annex- 
ation 10 years ago of the 
former Portuguese colony. 

Dr Mocbrar 

Kusumaaimadja. the Indo- 
nesian Foreign Minister, said 
on Friday that Jakarta had 
invited Portugal to the 
meeting. 


Two captured Philippine government soldiers chatting with a communist guerrilla, 
ter they, had been freed at Gnmaca, a remote town 90 miles south-east of Mi 


Government but inside the 
Cabinet," be said before join- 
ing about 10,000 people at an 
anti-communist rally. 

The Cebu rally came at foe 
end of his three-day tour of the 
southern and central Phil- 
ippines where, in discussion 
with military officers and sol- 
diers, Mr Emile repeated his 
call for a mailed-list approach 
to foe insurgency and, on one 
occasion, described Mrs* 
Aquino's peace efforts as 
.“simplistic and naive”. 

He told Southern Military 
Command officers in foe 
southern port city of Zam- 
boanga at the weekend: “Be- 


cause of what I am doing 
today, many of my colleagues 
in the Cabinet have been 
asking for my resignation. 

“I would tike to assure you 
that I have in my mind my own 
approach to this problem and 1 
wiJD make a decision in doe 
course. 

“That decision wiD be predi- 
cated not on my own personal 
interest, bat what I consider 
foe interest of the people,” he 
added. 

He later told foe officers 
“this is my problem, not 
yours” and urged the military 
to remain united and neutral in 


his increasingly public fend 
with the eight-mouth old Gov- 
ernment he helped to install. 

For the first time last week 
Mr E^utle did not attend the 
regular Cabinet meeting, 
called one day after be said 
Mrs Aquino had forfeited foe 
mandate of foe people to 
govern when she abolished the 
Marcos constitntion one 
mouth after taking power. 

The peace talks, from which 
Mr Enrile is excluded, re- 
sumed at an undisclosed place 
in Manila and lasted two 
boors and 45 minutes, a source 
in the government negotiating 
panel said. 


European diplomats here 
said that the other 1 1 commu- 
nity members were exas- 
perated with Lisbon for 
breaking a long-standing pre- 
cedent that bilateral issues 
should not interfere with 
meetings with other regional 
groupings. 

“The Community does not 
like Portugal taking this a la 
carte attitude 10 months after 
coming in.” one diplomat 
said. “We would like them to 
be good Europeans.” 

The two-day meeting will 
discuss ways of stepping up 
European investment in the 
Association of South-East 
Asian Nations, which groups 
Indonesia. Malaysia, Thai- 
land, Singapore, the Phil- 
ippines and Brunei. 



The Bedford Tfeam Astra van 
range gives the driver in you whatyou 
want, while the businessman in you 
gets what is needed. 

The dear appeal 
of this shows with 
the runaway sales 
success of the Astra 


van range. 

This popularity 
is shared by other Bedford vans. The 
combined registrations of Astra, 
Midi, Rascal and CF2 have gained 
Bedford the bigg est sales increase in 
1986 of any manufacturer. * 

Tfeam Astra vans are the most 
j modem, aerodynamicallystyied on 
the street. Their good looks ione 
speak volumes about your business. 

But apart from being street- 
smart they’re street-credible. 

The ‘Good Van Guide* wrote in a 
comparative van test report, “By far 
the best (engine) though just has to 
be Astramax. Its engine is silky, 
pushing forwards smoothly and 
: effortlessly” 

‘Commercial Motor*, in their van 
comparison test, also noted how a 


laden Astra diesel beat similarly laden 
Fbrd Escort and Peugeot 305 GL 
diesel vans, by returning 48-19 mpg. 

In a similar test 
y ^ a foden, petrd- 
/ - 1; ; engined Astramax 
gave 36-25 nqjgover- 
all; the best of the 
bunch. One reason 
; ^ • .js for such good fuel 

J efficiency is the cross- 
flow cylinder head design. 


Loadspace Astra Van Astramax 

Height (max) 34V&T 42" 

Width (max) 53^" 63" 

Length (max) 70" 68" 


‘Good Van Guide’ also had good 
words about driving the Astramax 
“. . . very quiet, very refined, very 
civilised, libu can almost forget you’re 
driving a van” They added, “Astramax 
must become new light vans leader 


with its blend of style, driveability 
f and useful room’! 

Now to get down to carrying: 
capacity, at the business end you 
have a choice of load volumes: 

66-3 cu ft in the Astra, or 82 cu ft in 
the Astramax. 

Uniformly distributed payloads 
are 4 15 kg for the Astra Van with 
365 kg or 560 kg, depending on 
the model, for the 
Astramax. 

Note, too, that 
unlike some vans a 
solid bulkhead is 
fitted as standard, 
so is a rear wash/ 
wipe on Astra L 
models. This is now also available for 
Astramax vans. 

Another clever touch, unique to 
Astramax, is the load extension deck 
in place of the passenger seat 

Tb sum up, Bedford’s Tfeam Astra 
vans lead because they're built to eat ' 
up roads as well as loads.

Southern Indian politics 


Help for disadvantaged classes 
may cause irreparable damage 


From Michael Hamlyn Delhi 


A political nightmare lor 
two South Indian chief min- 
isters is created fay the policy 
of positive discrimination in 
favour of economically or so- 
cially backward classes, which 
is supposed to help soda! 
integration and remove in- 
equalities. 

Instead, the policies are 
causing riots and political 
disturbances, and may even- 
tually damage the social fabric 
of tfie states beyond repair. 

The policy calls for places to 
be reserved for applicants 
from specified castes or other 
groups in higher education or 
in government employment. 

It has been a cardinal 
principle of Indian social pol- 
icy since the founding of the 
republic, and is seen as a use- 
ful tool in overcoming the pre- 
judices of previous centuries. 

Lately, however, it has be- 
come a way for politically 
powerful groups to buttress 
their own privileged positions, 
encouraged by vote-hungry 
politicians. 

This reservation policy en- 
abled an ambitious Congress 
politician such as Mr Amar- 
sinh So lan kd to put together an 
alliance of low-caste, outcaste 
and Muslim voters which 
gained him victory in state 
elections and carried him to 
the chief minister’s chair. 

But he was thrown out of 


power as a result o f the m ore 
advanced castes starting a 
mighty agitation against his 
policies. The demonstrations 
became increasingly violent 
and turned into a series of 
riots and running battles be- 
tween Muslims and Hindus 

Iu the southern state of 
Andhra Pradesh, Mr N. T. 
Rama Rao, the idiosyncratic, 
ageing film star who occupies 
the chief minister’s chair, 
having created his own politi- 
cal party and swept Congress 
from power early in 1983, ap- 
parently learned no lesson 
from Mr Soiankf s experience. 

In July this year, feeling 
threatened by a Congress 
move to unite the backward 
classes against him, he hastily 
increased reservations in jobs 
and college admissions. 

After his move the number 
of places available to open 
competition fefl to a ludicrous 
29 per cent. The others are 
divided 16 per cent for sched- 
uled castes, the so-called Un- 
touchables or Harijans; 6 per 
cent for scheduled tribes, that 
is the aboriginal inhabitants of 
the Subcontinent; another 6 
per cent for special groups 
such as the handicapped, and 
an astonishing 44 per cent for 
other backward classes, which 
Mr Rama Rao had increased 
from 25 per cent. 

Not unnaturally, the higher 


castes were aghast: an import- 
ant protest began to toll, led 
by a student agitation. But be- 
fore much steam could be gen- 
erated, the Andhra High Court 
struck down the decision as 
unconstitutional, citing a Su- 
preme Cburt decision that 
reservations should never be 
more than SO per cent of avail- 
able places. 

Mr Rama Rao agreed with 
the students not to appeal 
against the High Cburt deci-' 
sion, if they agreed to call off 
their protests. 

But this deal enraged the 
leaders of the backward 
classes, who began a series of 
riots of their own. burning 
rather more than £2 million 
worth of buses in the course of 
it. 

In the neighbouring state of 
Karnataka, Mr Ramakrishna 
Hegde, the chief minister from 
the Janata party, has been fac- 
ed with an opposite problem. 

The report of a commission 
headed by a retired civil 
servant recommended that 
reservations for backward 
castes should be reduced from 
49 per cent to 27 per cent and 
called for the removal of a 
large number of castes from 
the list. 

Before Mr Hegde, who ap- 
pointed the commission to 
honour a commitment given 
by the last Congress chief 


minister of the state, could do 
anything, groups of the affect- 
ed castes began calling general 
strikes and burning his effigy. 

One further trouble is that 
the principal caste delisted is 
die numerically powerful' 
Vokkaliga, who form an influ- 
ential group within his own 
party and government 

Mr Hegde has temporized 
by rejecting the commission 
report. But even that has not 
stopped the problem. The Lin- 
gayais. the other politically 
powerful caste, lost the hon- 
our of being known as a back- 
ward caste a decade ago. They 
want the whole issue reopen- 
ed, so that they can claw back 
their privileged position. 

The Vokkaligas and the 
Lingayats between them make 
up nearly 75 per cent of the 
Janata legislature party. 

A big dispute over the 
reservation policy may not 
only destroy the Janata Gov- 
ernment, observers warn, but 
may also rip apart the social 
cohesion of the state itself. 

The Times of India notes: 
‘The irony of it is that the . . . 
report is the result of the first 
serious attempt made in post- 
Independence India to take 
account of the mobility of 
castes and classes and to deter- 
mine ‘backwardness* on the 
basis of actual house-to-house 
surveys."

Rallies 
banned 
in Punjab 

From Hasan Akhtar 
Islamabad 


cal patties have been 
in parts of Punjab province. 
Miss Benazir Bhutto, the lead- 
er of the Pakistan People’s 
Parly, has already announced 
she would defy any ban on 
public meetings or proces- 
sions. ... 

It is apparent that the ban is 
intended to check the wel- 
come Miss Bhutto has been 
receiving from supporters 
whenever she visits Punjab or 
the interior of Sind. 

Meanwhile, although a 
judge in Rawalpindi accepted 
a bail application at the week- 
end, Mr Ghul^m Mustafa 
Khar, a former governor of 
Punjab, bad still , not been 
freedfiom a jail in Fa is ala h ad. 
in Punjab yesterday. 

Mr Khar . bad. applied fin* 
release on bait after being 
arrested in connection with a 
case in which an opposition 
rally in Rawalpindi was fired 
on in 1973. But Mr Khar is 
also being held for fading to 
appear before a mflitaiy court 
some years ago during nearly 
nine years in self-imposed 
exile. 

Once described as the politi- 
cal heir of Zulfikar All Bhutto, 
the executed former prime 
minister, Mr Khar has now 
joined a new political party, 
with Mr Ghnlam Mustafa Ja- 
toi of Sind, in opposition to 
Miss Bhutto. 


Uncertain 
fate of 
Sri Lanka 
prisoners 

From Vtiitha Yapa 
Colombo 

There are conflicting re; 
ports on . the fate of^two Sn 
Lankan soldiers captured by 
Tamil guerrillas last week and 
held in the Northern Province 
capital of Jaffiia. 

Some reports say that the 
Tamil guerrillas will exchange 
the soldiers for guerrillas who 
are among more than 1,000 
Tamils held in prisons and 
detention camps in the south 
for alleged involvement with 
“terrorists'". 

But General Cyril Ranatun- 
ge, r oTnn l P nf ^ ,1 8 the Joint 
Operations Command, said in 
the slate-controlled Sunday 
Observer. “We are counting on 
the terrorists keeping their 
word about the release of the 
two captured soldiers". 

He said no ransom de- 
mands bad been made, and 
that the terrorists had in- 
formed the Government 
Agent in Jaffiia that the sol- 
diers would be released after 
they recovered from their 
injuries!. 

The two solders. Gunner 
P. R. K. Fernando and rifle- 
man K. W. M. Bandara, were 
captured on Monday near 
Mannar in an ambush in 
which nine -soldiers were 
killed. One is said to have a 
broken kg, and the other has 
pleurisy and a slight injury. 

The Government claims 
that 65 guerrillas were killed 
and a large number injured in 
the fighting. 

Meanwhile, the indepen- 
dent The Island newspaper 
reported yesterday that the 
Tamil guerrillas, based in 
Madras, would take pan in the 
next round of talks aimed at a 
negotiated settlement of the 
ethnic problem. ' 

Guerrilla leaders m Madras 
told The Island last week that 
they did not consider the 
current proposals a reasonable 
basis for negotiation- 

The Tamil United Libera- 
tion' Front has expressed 
reservations about Tamil- 
speaking areas of the Eastern 
Province merging' with the 
predominantly Tamil North- 
ern Province, ownership of 
state land in the devolved 
provincial council areas, and 
Parti ment retaining power to 
legislate even oyer matters 
that have been devolved. 

' -It has also ruled out die 
possibility of signing an agree- 
ment with me Sri Lanka 
Government without the In- 
volvement of Tamil guerrilla 
groups.- - " 1 

Political observers say that 
Mr Rajiv Ghandi, die Indian 
Prime Minister, is expected to 
fake some -initiative in the 
crisis when he returns from his 
tour of the Pacific this week. 
Mr J. N. Dixit, India’s High 
Commissioner in Colombo, 
hasgone to Delhi to brief him 
on bis talks with President 
Jayewardene. 

The next meeting between 
Mr Jayewardene and Mr Gan- 
dhi will be in Bangalore in 
India on November 15, when 
both take part in the beads of 
state conference of the South 
Asian Association for Re- 
gional Co-operation.

Contrasting views of reality 30 years after the Budapest uprising 


Asocialist wonderland 
or country in decline 






' ' - / i .i' 

% .*>#W ’ 


Thirty years ago this week 
Hungarians revolted against 
the Communist authorities , 
symbolically toppling the 
statue of Stalin ana demand- 
ing withdrawal from the War- 
saw Paa. Soviet tanks put 
down the uprising after bloody 
street battles. Roger Boyer, 
East Europe Correspondent, 
looks at how life has changed 
for the Hungarians, the dilem- 
mas facing economic reform- 
ers and the rising social 
tensions in the most liberal of 
the Communist states. 

Janos Kadardid not want to 
invade Czechoslovakia in 
1968. 

He had his own bruised 
memories of Soviet tanks in 
Budapest in 19S6 and, after 12 
years of political spring clean- 
ing, he was about to launch 
into his own economic 
reforms. 

Waller Ulbricht. the East 
German leader, is said to have 
interrupted Mr Radar's argu- 
ments, presented at a Warsaw 
Pact summit, and to have 
shouted: “If you think. Com- 
rade Kadar, that you are 
helping the cause of socialism 
with your objections then you 
are making a big mistake. 
Once the American-West Ger- 
man imperialists have got 
Czechoslovakia in their con- 
trol, then you will be the next 
to go. Comrade Kadar” 


Well, Ulbricht was wrong. 
Economic reform is now 
firmly rooted in Hungary and 
there has been no ideological 
upheaval

marks in the Budapest casino

Hungary: A 
generation 
after 1956 

Parti 


Marx University have not 
changed their names to 
Rockefeller and Thyssen and 
the party is still comfortably in 
control. 

There are essentially two 
views of how Hungary has 
developed since 1956. The 
first is that it is something of a 
socialist wonderland, where 
the system can satisfy con- 
sumer needs; where the 
queues are in the bank not the 
butcher's; where market forces 
are tuned to demand but are 
not unleashed in a way that 
would trigger unemployment 

Vatca Utca, the busy shop- 
ping precinct >s the showcase 


— videos, personal computers, 
fashionable clothes, rock 
records. Western sportswear, 
testily, to a degree of 
prosperity. 

“We are, I suppose," drawls 
a young Budapest intellectual, 
“the kind of place that the 
Labour Party would like to 
make Britain into.” After a 
pause: “Without the Soviet 
bases, of course.” 

The second Hungary, as 
seen by many natives, not just 
dissidents, is a country in 
decline. The economy has 
satisfied certain needs but is 
not growing with sufficient 
speed to meet everybody’s 
expectations. 

There is a big, unpleasant 
gulf between the rich and the 
poor. Work morale is low, the 
standard of living high, but 
under threat. Moonlighting is 
a way of life. The sociologist, 
Istvan Kemeny, estimates that 
80 per cent of Hungarians 
have secondary incomes 
which equal their main in- 
comes. The private sector, 
both legal and illegal pro- 
duces half the total of con- 
sumer goods and accounts for 
a third of the gross national 
product. 

It is a treadmill society, that 
much is clear. But the need to 
work hard — a compulsion not 
unknown in Japan or West 
Germany — does not by itself

explain why so many Hungar- 
ians are depressed by the state 
of their country. 

Some say it is fin de regime, 
a Collapse in seif-confidence 
that precedes a changeover of 
power. Others say it is because 
the democratization of soci- 
ety, the need to foster thought 
and keep the intellectual oxy- 
gen flowing, has not kept pace 
with the economic changes. 

It is certainly a feet that the 
economy has begun to falter. 
Poor results in 1985 meant 
that the whole five-year plan 
for 1 98 1 -85 fell far short of its 
targets. 

Industrial output rose only 
12 per cent compared to the 19 


to 22 per cent envisaged. 
Domestic consumption fell 4 
per cent in 1985, real wages 
are still 5 per cent lower than 
in 1980, the per capita hard- 
currency debt is the highest in 
Eastern Europe. 

The new plan, which was 
supposed to give the economy 
a strong push, has got off to a 
rocky start this year. 

The Hungarian leaders in- 
sist that these problems are 
not the result of economic 
reform. Various external fac- 
tors are blamed — poor world 

S ice for food, European 
ommuriity restrictions on 
East European food exports 
after Chernobyl, the collapse 


in oil prices in the West that 
makes Hungarian oil products 
less competitive, Far Eastern 
competition on the textiles 
market The list is long and 
largely justified. 

On paper the new reforms 
look set to be radical indeed: 
the- abolition of unprofitable 
enterprises, the decentraliza- 
tion of the banking system, 
progress i ve taxation of the 
“new rich" and the extension 
of the bond market But it is 
not the economic blueprints 
that are at fault Rather the 
political, will to implement 
them is missing.

Russians open sea 
and rail link 
to by-pass Poland 

By Oht E«rt European Correspondent 


The Soviet Union and East 
Germany have inaugurated an 
important new sea and rail 
link, by-passing Poland, 
which trill provide a strate- 
gically crucial Warsaw Pact 
supply Hoe in any iatsae war. 

The tint feny to now in

The idea is that about- a

many and the Soviet Union

When the Solidarity unrest

Divisions within the PLO 



says Jordan link 
still strong despite 
repudiation by Fatah 


Mr Yassir Arafat admitted 
yesterday that his PLO mili- 
tary headquarters had been 
moved from Tunis to Bagh- 
dad, but still insisted that his 
co-ordination agreement with 
King Husain of Jordan re- 
mained ‘valid, even though his 
own Fatah guerrilla move* 
mem has pronounced it a 
dead letter. 


From Robert Fisk, Cairo 

well, stems from President 
Bouiguiba's growing antipa- 
thy towards an organization 
winch is not only breaking 
apart politically, but which 
had come to represent a 
security risk in a country 
suffering serious economic 
and social problems. 

Even when discussing his 
relations with King Husain, 


His statements, however; - Mr Arafat's words had about 
serve only to emphasize the them the son of unwordly 
divided, almost surreal world quality that' has caused even 
in which bis Palestine Libera- some of his most loyal coi- 
tion Organization now exists. _ leagues to despair. 

It was in the Egyptian The agreement be had sol- 
October, that Mr ernnly accepted and signed 


; conceded that his mili- 
tary offices had already been 
transferred to Baghdad, where 
they would, he claims, be safe 
from Israeli air attack. But in 
Khartoum he told the Sudan 
News Agency that the PLO’s 
political department would 
remain in Tunis. 

“We decided to end our 

military presence in Tunis two 

months after the Israeli air 
raid on Tunis," he said. 
“Thank God there is no 
Palestinian military presence 
in Tunisia today. After the 
raid, I found it my duty to 
move to an area that can 
provide protection." 

PLO stalwarts who remem- 
ber Israel's devastating air 
raid on the Osiris nuclear 
plant omside Baghdad in 1 981 
will immediately have re- 
alized that Mr Arafat was not 
really telling the truth. 

The real reason for the 
PLO’s scaled-down presence 
in Tunisia, as Mr Arafat’s 
supporters know only too 


with the King on February 1 1, 
198S — an accord which 
allowed the Jordanian leader 
to negotiate with the Israelis 
on the Palestinians' behalf for 
the return of the occupied 
West Bank and Gaza Strip — 
was still valid, he said. 

What, ft has to be asked, are 
Palestinians to make or all 
this? 

The King announced in 
March that be could no longer 
work with Mr Arafat. The 
anti-Arafat Palestinian groups 
based in Damascus de- 
nounced the agreement when 
it was first ratified last year. 
Mr Arafat's own Fatah move- 
ment has abrogated the ac- 
cord. Mr Arafat, it turns out, 
now claims that only the 
Palestine National Council, 
the PLO’s “parliament-in- 
exile”, can take such 
decisions. 

This sudden resort to 
constitutional detail, so at 
odds with Mr Arafat's usual 
obfuscation, does nothing to 


clarify the PLO's position, if 
indeed it can now be said to 
expound any political view 
with one voice. 

■ The question now is not so 
much "what is the PLO’s 
stand?" as “whai is the PLO?" 
Insofar as Mr Arafat at- 
tempted to answer the first 
question, he did so, as usual, 
by talking about King Husain. 

“It is dear that Jordan came 
under pressure (over the 
agreement), some pressure 
from Syria, some pressure 
from the United States, some 
from Israel," he said. 

“These pressures made Jor- 
dan think it could go along 
with a plan or peace process 
alone, apart from the PLO. On 
our side, the Jordanian agree- 
ment stands because ft cannot 
be abrogated except by the 
Palestine National Gouncil, 
and neither myself nor anyone 
else can cancel it." 

Mr Arafat criticized King 
H usain fordosing PLO offices 
in Amman and for expelling 
his deputy, Abu Jihad (Mr 
Khalil Wazir), but reserved 
his real condemnation for the 
Syrians. 

Asked if anyone was delib- 
erately trying to divide the 
PLO, he replied: “Do I have to 
tell you it is Syria? Some 
countries which are unable to 
face their own people try to 
use the Palestinian card to 
cover up their deficiencies." 

• ABU DHABI: Mr Denis 
Healey, the Labour Party for- 
eign affaire spokesman, yes- 
terday said he was ready to 
meet Mr Arafat if his party 
were returned to power.

Israeli navigator ‘in hands of terrorist group’ 


From Ian Murrary 
Jerusalem 

The missing airman from 
the Israeli Phantom jet which- 
crashed in southern Lebanon 
on Thursday is alive and well 
in the hands of a “terrorist 
group”, according to Major 
General Amos Lapidot, the 
Commander of the Israeli Air 
Force. 

The General said it was still 
not known which group was 
holding him prisoner, al- 
though he gave the first of- 
ficial confirmation here that 
die airman had been captured. 

The Amal Shia Muslim 
militia, the strongest group of 
the many in the area where the 
aircraft crashed, has claimed 
that ft is holding the airman 
prisoner, but sources here said 
they had no evidence "to 
confirm this. 

Photographs taken by the 
group showing one of its 
militiamen holding Israeli 
equipment have been dis- 
counted because the items 
could have been thrown away 
either by the rescued Phantom 
pilot or by die captured man. 

Mr Yitzhak Rabin, the De- 
fence Minister, briefed the 
Cabinet on the Lebanese 
situation during a secret ses- 


sion yesterday in which he is 
understood to have empha- 
sized the importance of ignor- 
ing rival claims by different 
groups that they were holding 
the prisoner. 

Mr Uri Lubrani. the Israeli 
co-ordinator for Lebanese pol- 
icy at the Defence Ministry, 
has said that if Amal is 
holding the missing man pris- 
oner, then the militia group 
will be held responsible for his. 
safety by Israel, which wants 
him returned “forthwith". 

Mr David Kimche, the 
outgoing Director-General of 
the Fb reign Ministry, said that 
the missing airman cannot be 
regarded as a prisoner of war 
because he stands no chance 
of being treated as such by any 
of the groups who might have 
captured him. 

Following the prisoner swap 
last year, when three Israelis 
were handed back for more 
than 1,100 Palestinian pris- 
oners, there is an awareness on 
both sides that the rate of 
exchange is very high. 

Israel has repeatedly refused 
to exchange live prisoners for 
the body of one Israeli ser- 
geant, mid it is certain to 
refuse to negotiate any kind of 
exchange this time until there 


is certain proof that the miss- 
ing man is alive and there is 
confirmation of exactly who is 
holding him prisoner. 

For this reason personal 
details of the missing man 
continue to be withheld. 

In February two Israeli 
soldiers were captured in an 
ambush in southern Lebanon 
which ted to a massive un- 
successful search of the area. 


There has been no verifiable 
news of the two men’s where- 
abouts since and no attempt to 
offer them in exchange despite 
their obvious value as 
bargaining counters if they are 
alive. 

• BEIRUT: The whereabouts 
of the Israeli Air Force navi- 
gator remained a mystery 
yesterday after Mr Nabih 
Beni, the leader of the Amal 



General Moshe Levy, Israel's Chief of Staff, leaving 
Cabinet meeting after a briefing on the missing airman. 


Shia Muslim Militia, declared 
he had no information that his 
men were bolding the aviator 
(Juan Carlos Gumucio 
writes); 

Mr Beni suggested that the 
case of the captured Israeli 
could be solved through a 
prisoner exchange with IsraeL 

He declined to confirm or 
deny reports saying the air- 
man was in Amal hands. But 
be said: “In case such reports 
were true, then for sure he 
should be swapped through 
international codes for all 
Lebanese and Palestinian pris- 
oners held by Israeli 
authorities." 

Militia commanders in tire 
south are said to favour a 
prisoner exchange. About 250 
men, mostly Shia Muslims, 
are being held prisoner in the 
Lebanese village of Kbiam, 
within the zone occupied by 
the Israeli Army, and in the 
Adit prison, in northern 
IsraeL 

Amal officials in Beirut had 
said that the aviator, who 
baled put near Sidon after his 
plane was hit by a missile 
during a raid on Palestinian 
targets on Thursday, was alive 
and being held prisoner by the 
militia. The pilot was rescued 
by the Israelis. 


Belgium’s 
coalition 
in danger 

From Richard Owen 
Brussels 

The increasingly fragile co- 
alition government of Mr W2- 
fried Martens, which, staved 
off collapse ova a tangled 
languag e row at the end of last 
week, is again in danger of fell- 
ing apart after Mr Cbaries-Fer- 

dinand Nothomb, the Minis- 
ter of the Interior and leading 
spokesman for the French- 
speaking parties, resigned at 
the weekend. 

Mr Martens heads the 
Flemish-speaking element in 
the coalition. In a move to 
stress continuity and limit the 
damage caused by Mr No- 
thomb's departure. Mr Mar- 
tens immediately appointed 
Mr Jean Michel a French- 
speaking Christian Democrat, 
as the new Interior Minister. 

Mr Nothomb resigned after 
a row ova the dismissal of Mr 
Jose Happart as mayor of the 
Fourons. a small collection of 
French-speaking villages in a 
Flemish area near the Dutch 
border, because of his refusal 
to speak Dutch. 

What began as a parochial 
and trivial issue has become 
the national focus of inflamed 
tensions between French and 
Dutch speakers in Belgium, 
with police drafted into the 
Fourons to keep order. 

The language issue which 
brought about Mr Nothomb’s 
departure strikes at the heart 
of Belgium's constitution. Mr 
Nothomb’s resignation came 
after his abortive attempts to 
have Mr Happart's dismissal 
as mayor suspended, pending 
a referral of the issue to the 
Supreme Court. On Friday Mr 
Nothomb changed tack by 
recommending that King Bau- 
douin should appoint Mr. 
Roger Wynams, a respected 
local figure who speaks French 
and Dutch, as acting mayor of 
the Fourons. 

The local council elected Mr 
Happart as first alderman or 
rival acting mayor. Mr 
Happart, who is seen as the 
leader of militant Walloons 
(the French-soeaking popula- 
tion) accused Mr Nothomb of 
betrayaL 

A tense and angry Mr 
Nothomb said on television 
yesterday (Sun) that he bad 
acted logically and democrati- 
cally, and that Belgian unity 
and stability were at stake. 


Communist 
threat to 
Greek vote 

From Mario Modiano 

Athens 

As polling stations reopened 
yesterday for the second 
round of local elections in 226 
towns, Greek voters were 
wanted by the Government- 
controlled media that absten- 
tion was punishable by law. 

The Socialist Government 
of Mr Andreas Papandiwu is 
clearly alarmed that if the 
communist voters in Athens, 
who represent 17.6 per cent of 
the total, heed the Communist 
Party’s call fora boycott ofMr 
Dimitris Beis. the Socialist 
mayor, Mr Miltos Evert, his 
Conservative rival, would win 
the election. 

Mr Evert led after the first 
round, with 44.6 per cent to 
Mr Beis's 29.2 per cent.. 

The Communist Party’s 
surprise derision to oppose 
the Socialist candidate only in 
Athens, to punish the Govern- 
ment for refusing an electoral 
law reform in return for its 
support, has turned this un- 
usually subdued local election 
into a spirited confrontation. 

Even "General" Markos 
Vafiadis. aged 81, the veteran 
communist commander-in- 
chief of the civil war. was 
brought in to castigate the 
Communist Party’s move. 

The Communist Party is 
clearly attempting to pul on 
record the high degree of 
Socialist dependence on Com- 
munist support for aU its 
important options, such as the 
election of the President or the 
revision of the constitution. 

This would presumably lay 
the groundwonc for a Social- 
ist-Communist relationship 
based on give-and-take, if Mr 
Papandrcou , despite bis loss 
of popularity, wants to con- 
tinue in office. 

The ruling Socialists, whose 
fifth anniversary in power on 
October 11 passed almost 
unnoticed, are worried that 
the Communist Party's direc- 
tive to black the Socialist 
candidate in Athens could nib 
off on otha cities. 

final results of the second 
round should tell the 
Papandrcou Government 
whether its substantial losses 
earlier this month were simply 
a wanting from the electorate 
against mismanagement and 
ostentation or a suspended

More blessed than the Booker 


I 


Jack Higgins, bursting with energy 


x is noi often that a novelist features 
his own house in his work without 
changing its name. In Jack Higgins’s 
latest multi-million best-seller. 
Sight of the Fox, his house 
Septembertide in Jersey makes a major 
appearance: it is where Harrv Martineau, 
philosophy don turned killer for his 
country, masquerading in wartime Jersey 
as Standanenftihrer Max Vogel, comes 
across the man he believes to be Rommel 
but who is in feet Heini Baum, a brilliant 
mimic. 

Such literary history should not pass 
unnoticed, so Collins arranged for a group 
of 1 5 journalists to fly out for lunch with 
Higgins at Septembertide. “Do you mind 
wearing this little label” asks the pub- 
licity woman. “Just so Jack and Denise 
can remember who they're talking to.” 

Higgjns. dressed in black, wearing dark 
g las s es , welcomes the group, introducing 
them to Denise, a blonde in green. Denise 
is bis young wife of nearly two years. The 
group is given champagne and passes on 
to the balcony, agreeing that the view is 
breathtaking. Fresh air taken, people 
dawdle back inside. Indian sculptures and 
dark seascapes decorate the room. Books 
abound on a selection of coffee tables; 
Graham Greene, Brian Patten, the biog- 
raphy of Frank Sinatra, the Bookseller 
magazine and Tadics: The Art and 
Science of Success by Edward de Bono. A 
Misalliance by Anita Brookner is 
uppermost. 

Higgins, a chunky silver watch on his 
wrist, approaches a journalist and starts 
talking. “Several people have said to me 
Martineau's an amazing kind of charac- 
ter. where did you get him from, so I say. 
well, let’s put it this way . . 

On the other side of the room two 


Off to Jersey’s tax-haven, to help in a modest little’ 
celebration of Jack Higgins’s latest multi-million 
best-seller. Night of the Fox, went Craig Brown . . . 


journalists discuss Higgins's age. On 
consultation, the publicity woman in- 
forms them that he is 57. He looks 15 
years younger. Is his hair dyed? asks a 
journalist, pointing out what might be 
henna. “Well mine is", says the publicity 
.woman, managing a laugh. 

. . and so Richard Burton cornered 
me in the foyer and he said, come on. you 
must have been thinking of me when you 
wrote that character . . ." 

The group have been invited to come 
through and help themselves to lunch: 
lobster, salmon, beef. “Princess Michael 
was charming. A much maligned lady. I 
strongly disapprove of what the 
Press . . ." says a man from Hatchards. . 
He adds that they have ordered 250 of the 
new Higgins hardback; a few years ago it 
would have been 500. but what with the 
economic climate ... 

“. . we were discussing things — you 
know, feme, and why some people want 
to put you down — and Richard said to 
me. it's a funny thing, fame. And his exact 
words were . . " 

Higgins has moved into the dining- 
room now and, while most of the 
journalists dig into the lobster, a semi- 
circle of four or five dutifully take notes as 
he carries on. Often, his replies are so long 
that the person who asked, the question 
has disappeared from the group in search 
of more champagne by the time Higgins 
has finished answering it. 

**. . . take my life, for instance. Here 
you have someone who starts life in the 


working class and suddenly you're stand- 
ing there years later in a loo with a couple 
ofex-prime ministers, suddenly you're on

tions and* recently I did a show on 

•Radio 4 called The Year I Was Born — 
you know, me one week. Patrick 
Litchfield the next, Bonnie Langford the 
week after . . 

A local photographer asks a journalist if 
be has read the book yet. Yes, replies the 
journalist- There is a silence. Wandering 
back to the living-room, a group look at 
the photographs of the author on the 
grand piano. “IsnYthat Jim Callaghan?" 
“Oh. and there he is with Clive James — 
what's he doing with Clive James?" 

The energy of the man is incredible, 
agrees one of the Collins contingent in the 
dining-room. Chain-smoking, glass of 
champagne in hand, Higgins holds forth 
on being ignored by the British literary 
establishment. . to totally change the 
perspective, let me put this to you: can 
you ever imagine Melvyn Bragg asking 
Jack Higgins his view on the future 
prospect of the English novel? Well, can 
you?" 

he local photographer mentions 
that in the kitchen there are 
more photographs of Higgins 
with celebrities. A journalist 
sneaks into the kitchen with 
him. There is Higgins with Jimmy 
Saville, and there is Higgins with Mount- 
batten. yes, Mountbatten, with Eric 


yuu. 

T 


Morecambe. isn't it. in the background, 
and there he is with Vera Lynn, and 
Antonia Fraser, and who's that? Oh, BiUy 
Butlin. 

The sedentary journalists have bad 
their fill and have-begun to wander about. 
“Apparently there is a jaciizzi upstairs", 
whispers one. and the others chuckle- t 
“Did you see the gold fittings in the*- 
bathroom?" asks another. Higgins's new... 
wife explains to someone that he is: 
' known by .his other name, Harry Patter--.- 
son. on Jersey. “So the locals call him.'' 
Harry?" “Oh, very much so'Vshe replies.-- 

“. . . but I'm sure I've got just as much „ 
to say on the creative process as some-* 
obscure novelist who's never even gained. L 
•- the' Booker short-list . . ." 

The semicircle has stopped writing, but « 
continues' to nod. The top dog from:; 
Collins ' presents Higgins with a' vast<i 
reconstruction of his new book in glossy/ - 
cardboard. Inside, you can open a flap 
and a tape with the television advertise-,, 
mem for the book pops out. “And this .' 
comes with a great deal of affection fronts 
everyone who has worked on the — 
campaign" he says. He then produces a 
statuette for Jack. “And we thought we'dv. 
give you a memento of a really marvel- - 
lous book — everyone's tremendously/.! 
excited by it and this little bronze is to say -r 
you really are very special to us .. ." 

“It's better than the Booker prize", 
quips Jack, and everyone laughs. After a 
presentation of flowers to Denise, the - 
publicity woman says “Shall we drink up? -? 
The coach is waiting", and we leave./'

Unfailing vocal intelligence 


Nigel Rogers 

Wigmore Hall 


CONCERTS 


It is hard to believe that the 
singing career of Nigel Rogers 
has now spanned a quarter of 
a century- It has been a period 
coincident with the rise of the 
“early music” movement to a 
point at which the public, and 
hence the industry, now con- 
sumes authenticity with genu- 
ine fervour. Rogers's singing 
style was a crucial part ofthe 
revolution, and as this cele- 
bratory recital showed he 
remains an important flag- 
bearer of an attitude that seeks 
to negate the tradition, con- 
ceived in the 19th century, of 
cultivating voices capable of 


competing with ever-expand 
dens© 


ing orchestras and ever i 
textures. 

Not everyone may warm to 
Rogers's somewhat rasping 
tenor, but it is certainly 
distinctive, and he applies it 
with unfailing intelligence and 
instinct to whatever he hap- 
pens to be singing. 

There were occasions here 
when one wished that his 
delivery were not quite so 
intense: often he seemed to 


want to get the message across 
simply by shouting ft. at us. 
Yet he cleariy relishes the 
sheer adventure of his music, 
revelling — even a ntite cyni- 
cally, to judge from the tone of 
his spoken translations — in 
the frustrated ardours con- 
tained in many of the texts. 
And his opening group, un- 
accompanied, of an anony- 
mous English song from 
c. 1300. the Machaui i ireiai 
“Douce Dame jolie", and a 
song by the Meistersinger 
Hans Sachs, was most beauti- 
fully understated. 

With the harpsichordist 
John Toll (who also gave an 
exquisite reading of Tom- 
kins's “A Sad Pavan for these 
Distracted Times") he then 
took us on a quick tour of 
17th-century Italian monody, 
to which genre he has prob- 
ably contributed more than 
any other singer, cultivating 
and perfecting a technique 
capable of negotiating the 


most lavish ornamentation. 

There was rather more of 
that in D'India's “Tuttll di 
piango" than in Cacdni's “A 
qnei sospir andenti" or “La 
bella man vi stringo", but for 
sheer ardour Monteverdi took 
the prize in his “Ecco di dolce 
raggT. 

Besides such music, Henry 
Lawes and Matthew Locke 
seemed relatively wooden, 
though Locke's “The Despon- 
dent Lover's Song" contained 
some expressive harmonies, 
and the neat repetition of text 
at its end helped to heighten 
emotions. 

Similarly three 18th-century 
cantatas by Montedair, Ales- 
sandro Scarlatti and Bene- 
detto Marcello, to which, as in 
the English group. Mark Cau- 
dle added a string bass, 
sounded slightly reserved, 
constrained perhaps by the 
limitations of dramatic con- 
trast imposed by da capo 
form. Considered purely as 
abstract inventions, however,, 
they were marvellous.

Symphonic 
Variations 
Covent Garden 


tween piano and orchestra 
that is (he great attraction of 
the music. Ashton's choreog- 
raphy adds a further voice that 
responds perfectly; its hidden 
themes arc of love sought and 
found, the passage of seasons 
through winter's longing to the 
joy of spring.

Frederick Ashton created 
Symphonic Variations in 
1946. after wartime years 
during which, conscripted, he 
was unable to practise his 
trade. The dances, long re- 
pressed, burst from him like a 
spring, and Cesar Franck’s 
music inspired him to shape 
them in a way be (or hardly 
any other choreographer! had 
ever tried before, as one long 
lyrical flow of movement, free 
of any plot but with a strong 
emotional undertone. 


? 


The work is the foundation- 
stone of the Royal Ballet’s 
style but has long lain un- 
performed. for which Ashton's 
fearfbl mistrust of replace- 
ment casts must take some 
blame. It says something 
about .Anthony Dowdrs pur- 
pose and ability as director 
that he has got « back at the 
beginning of his tenure, and 
was able to heal wounds 
caused by shabby past treat- 
mem and bring in Michael 
Somes to rehearse the revival. 


joy of spnng. 

It was curious to see two 
American dancers in the lead- 
ing roles setting their British 
colleagues an example of how 
to .dance Ashton. Cynthia 
Harvey let the music show 
through her movement; her 
’simple, elegant clarity of out- 
line and fullness of gesture are 
lit up by the nuances of the 
way the choreographic phrases 
relate to those of the score. Jay 
Jolley (like Somes before him) 
has a feeling for Ashton's 
purpose that compensates for 
some imperfections in tech- 
nique. 

The other roles are hardly 
less important; we must hope 
to see them better danced 
later. The two women were 
precise but Wendy Ellis 
danced tensely and Karen

achieving the intimate, some- 
Udrtt hushed conversation be- 


brightness. Stephen BeagJey 
and David Peden left much to 
desire in both steps and 
manner. 

Symphonic Variations 
shares a programme with The 
Dream , another of Ashton's 
best ballets, and A Month in 
the Country, one or his most 
popular. In both, some of the 
cast were very good.

Hard to follow 


Langdon/ 
Sutherland 
Wigmore Hall 


The violinist Sophie Langdon 
has in the past five years set 
such high standards of expec- 
tation for herself and her 
audiences that some degree of 
disappointment is almost in- 
evitable sooner or later. After 
her revelatory Weill Concerto 
three years ago. a series of 
equally resonant recitals, and 
her fiery presence in the Trio 
Zingara. this programme of 
Russian music promised a lot 

From the very start, m 
Stravinsky's Suite Italienne, 
the distinctive, extrovert voice 
was there, but the diction was 
a little slurred. And. by the 
end of the evening, even 
Prokofiev's Sonata in D, the 
perfect showpiece for Miss 
Langdon's characteristic bal- 
ance of technical precision 
and panache, was a little 
lacklustre, too predictable in 
its responses. 

It may well have been the 
only half-full hall. It may have 
been simply that, at this point 
m her career, her own act is 
proving a hard one to follow. 
Or it may be something to do 
with the feet that Miss 
Langdon is beginning to need 
more challenges, more stimu- 
lus. in a career which seems to 
be settling towards the 
mainstream. 


In her UK premise perfor- 
mance of 36-year-old Elena 
Firsova's Fantasie. Op 32. 
much of Langdon’s nervous 
and imaginative energy 
flooded back, and our re- 
sponses. too, were quickened. 
The piece lasts little more than 
10 minutes; its single move- 
ment is shaped by an intensely 
Russian melody which re- 
turns, each time undogoing a 
subtle sea-change after dis- 
quieting interludes of mount- 
ing tension. 

Shuddering tremolandi con- 
tract a line straining under its 
own taut counterpoint; sear- 
ing repeated notes punctuate 
and demarcate at the extremes 
of pitch; and the final return of 
the melody in harmonics is 
spangled with pizzicato. It 
certainly gave Miss Langdon 
something to bury her bow 
into; I hope that her forthcom- 
ing programme of musk: from 
Hungary and Czechoslovakia 
will do the same.

Singing triumphant over all

Lucia di 
Lammermoor 
New, Cardiff . 


OPERA 


Throughout the evening 
Shelagb Sutherland, Lang- 
don's regular duo partner, 
responded with quick-witted 
piano playing. I particularly 
enjoyed her offsetting of the 
violin's nicely understated 
Lento m Prokofiev’s Cinq 
Melodies. 


Hilary Finch 


It woaU be offensive to the 
Welsh National Opera to 
suggest that their performance 
of Lada di La mm ermoor on 
Saturday night would have 
been worthy of an mter- 
national company. It was, 
quite simply, worthy of the 
WNO: one cu hardly invoke 
higher standards in a year that 
has seen not only their Ring at 
Covent Garden but also the 
towering achievement of their 
Oullowth Peter Stein. 


The Lucia success, though, 
is altogether different in kmd. 
It is not easy to see bow tins 
amid ever be a producer's 
opera, and William Gaskfll 
has been content to intervene 
very tittle, leaving things to the 
cast and, less happily, to the 
designer, (Jltz. The visual 
aspect is indeed nnaf 
One sees only a dark 
tittered with plastic racks (if 
better plastic rocks titan we 
had for Siegfried ) and a set of 
near-black breeze- block walls. 


the bretaiist set is merely 
nasty. 

But in fact it is almost an 
irrelevance, because what mat- 
ters in this production is 
uniquely the singing. Snzaime 
Morphy gives an astonishing 
performance as the heroine. 
She sings from the start with a 
blanched, almost vibrato-less 
tone, which suggests instabil- 
ity of mind hot which demands 
great stability of pitching; 
there is no room for accidents 
on these exposed, glacial 
slopes of ringing. Miss Mur- 
phy does not pot a foot wrong. 
She throws her voice nakedly 
and daringly into the trie, and 
is rewarded with a great 
personal success. She is al- 
ways clear in the ensembles, 
bot never loses, by virtue of her 
clarity of tone, the sense of one 
on the brink of running mad. 
Then, in the mad scene itself, 
she does not rash into 
derangement hot holds herself 
vocally and physically quite 
still, making the music work 
unaided, cool hot potent, as the 
means of expression. It en- 
tirely suits this interpretation 
that the spurious flute-led 


to gain a confidence that 
allowed him more freedom and 
resonrcefnlness. Not that 
these were adventitious qual- 
ities: as with Miss Murphy, 
the expression appeared to 
arise simply from the fact of 
singing superbly and at the 
limits of possibility. 

These two dominate, but 
time is a dark Enrico from 
Mark Holland, a grandly grim 
and grey Raimondo from Wil- 
liam Madtie and a splendidly 
forthright Arturo from Peter 
Brooder, who will be repeating 
the role at Covent Garden in 
December, though anyone in- 
terested in this opera should 
be making plans to get to 
Cardiff immediately. Julian 
Smith whams home the

The Petition 

Wyndhams 


THEATRE 


From tin time of iis opening 
at the National Theatre in 
July, it was dear that Brian 
Clark's star two-hander nos 
only passing through on its 
way to the West End. What- 
ever the reason for the South 
Bank preliminaries, Peter 
HalTs production has now 
found a snug berth as a 
thoughtful beautifully per- 
formed show pitched to the 
up-market commercial taste 
of people who want to en- 
counter serious issues in the 
theatre without being too 
upset. 

a dialogue in which the 
husband, a retired general 
simultaneously discovers that 
his wife fans truce months to 
live and that tire has joined 
the campaign against nuclear 
warfare. The Petition com- 
bines- Urn marital and military 
battlefields. It cannot be said 
that ihe>- do much to illu- 
minate each other, if only for 


the reason that the marital war 
develops inside a loving 
relationship, and that, as yet, 
femily life lacks any equiva- 
lent of the SS20. What the play 
does offer is searing evidence 
that sexual warfare continues 
unabated into old age and 
that love is often the means of 
uniting people who only 
thwart and diminish each 
other. 


Mr Dark avoids all the 
usual pitfalls that normally 
beset plays dealing with the 
day of reckoning. Past disclo- 
sures only push on the present 
action. The cliches of habitual 
conversation turn savage and 
start biting the speaker. And 
the seemingly fixed relation- 
ship between ironist and 
impostor becomes fluid as the 
bone-headed old General 
starts gening the better of the 

argument. 


lii this case, it is rather as if 
Mrs Alving had married Pas- 
tor Wanders. Imprisoned by 
her name. Lady Elizabeth 
Milne has spent 50 years 
bottling up her liberal opin- 
ions and discharging her frus- 
trated energies into adultery. 
The General meanwhile, has 
gone in dread of having his 
promotion scuppered by her 
dangerous tongue. Now. on 
the brink of the grave, all the 
secrets come tumbling out in a 
masterfully organized col- 
lision of past and present. 


The partnership between 
John Mills and Rosemary 
Hams offers more than luxury 
casting. There is acute pain in 
h. going to the brink of 
ugliness, and there are extraor- 
dinary passages where death 
provokes them both into 
hysterical laughter. From Miss 
Harris, a great actress, this is 
no surprise; from Sir John — 
collapsing into unmanly tears, 
and exploding into brutal 
insults, before recovering his 
gentlemanly composure - it 
amounts to a new lease of life.

THEENB fiHFHE 

STREETeca 

• In January this year 5300 News Internationa! print 
workers went on strike in pursuit of a demand for "jobs for 
life"". The strike put the workers In breach of contract, for 
which they were sacked — as their strike ballot form had 
warned they could be. 

• The dispute came after several years in which the company 
had tried to reach agreement with the unions to open new 
plants at Tower Hamlets (Wapping) and Kinning Park, 
Glasgow, built at a combined cost of nearly £100 million. Over 
the years the unions had continually rejected company 
requests on mannin g and working conditions, hot the general 
background to the negotiations was many years of industrial 
anarchy at Gray's Inn Road {The Times, The Sunday Times) 
and Bonverie Street ( The Sun, News of the World) and an al- 
most daily tug of war between management and onions over 
who was running the company. 

• Finally, Rupert Murdoch decided to change tactics; to open 
the new plant at Tower Hamlets as a green-field site and to 
“start again" in a completely new relationship with the 
rations. It was the failure of the unions to accept the 
management's industrial relations blueprint for a proposed 
new evening paper, the London Post, that led to print walkers 
at all four existing titles going on strike. As a consequence, the 
four titles were moved to Wapping to maintain production. 

• A book on the origins and consequences of this historic dis- 
pute, The End of the Street, by Linda Melvern, provides a fas- 
cinating account of the workings of the newspaper industry, its 
management attitudes and its workforce practices. Neither 
News International nor Times Newspapers has co-operated 
with the author of the book (as she makes clear in a foreword). 
We do not necessarily associate ourselves with any statements 
presented as fact in the book nor any conclusions it readies. 
But The Times believes that the book is important as the first 
attempt at a non-partisan account of what has become, known 
as “The Wapping dispute" and so we begin today a four-part 
serialization. 



Changing Fleet Street: Murdoch outlines his plans lor the Post to ltis execut i ves. “Once he had decided he wanted something, he would throw money and energy into getting - 



Part 1: The dash for freedom 


I I was on Sunday February 
10 last year, in his elegant 
but comfortable 12-room 
apartment on Fifth Avenue 
in New York, that Rupert 
Murdoch outlined the “dash for 
freedom” that was to revolu- 
tionize his British newspaper op- 
eration. A group of executives had 
flown from London on Concorde 
the day before and the meeting, 
which began at 10 in the morning, 
took place around the diningroom 
table. 

The project discussed that day 
concerned the idea of a new 
London evening paper — the Post 
— which could eventually be 
expanded to a 24-hour paper with 
national distribution. One of those 
present described the gathering as 
a “brainstorming meeting. We 
discussed logistics." 

He added that if the company 
planned to produce a new paper 
using direct input by journalists — 
thus cutting out the need for 
typesetters — Murdoch “would be 
out of his mind not to make damn 
sure the unions could not close 


down his other four titles...if 
events turn out that you've pushed 
your luck, you've got a contin- 
gency plan.” 

This contingency plan would 
involve a computerized photoset- 
ting system. Speed was essential: 
there was no time for “stale of the 
art”. Murdoch tokl the gathering 
that he wanted a system that was 
“dead safe” with good logistic 
support. He said: “We are not 
taking risks.” 

Those around the table who 
were familiar with his style knew 
they would now be totally swept 
up by the plan — there would be 
nothing but work and no time for 
anything but what became known 
as the “Post Project” 

Of those present Bruce Mat- 
thews, the managing director of 
News International, had the most 
experience of Murdoch's addic- 
tion to challenge. He knew that 
Murdoch would now relentlessly 
drive them forward ■ with his 
absolute commitment to the 
project — the chairman was not 
known for looking backwards. 


Once he had derided he wanted 
something, he would throw 
money and energy into getting it. 

His enthusiasm was infectious. 
One executive described working 
on a Murdoch project as like 
“being on a magic carpet- Sud- 
denly you're oft” In the coming 
months, all of them would be 
caught up in a whirlwind of 
activity. 

Matthews, an Australian who 
joined Murdoch in 1971 at the age 
of 47. was now to hive a strategic 
role in the Post project. But 
towards the summer oflasl year he 
began calling it “mission 
impossible” — though never in 
Murdoch's presence. 

It was no surprise to most of 
them in the apartment to see one 
of Murdoch’s more recent finds, 
Charles Wilson, then joint deputy 
editor of The Times. He was now 
to play an even more important 
role in the Murdoch empire. Also 
there was Christopher Polc-Ca- 
rew, who was loathed by the print 
unions for confronting them over 
new technology at the Evening 
Post in Nottingham, where Pole- 
Carew had been managing 
director. 

And the presence of Ken Taylor, 
Murdoch's technical director, had 


been enough to tell the others that 
whatever was in Murdoch’s mind, 
it would involve Wapping; h was 
Taylor’s plant, be knew every 
building, every screw, every rafter. 

That meeting was to mark the 
beginning of the end of trade 
union power in Fleet Street; but 
just what was Murdoch fleeing 
from? 

Murdoch had become exas- 
perated with Fleet Street's indus- 
trial relations problems, which 
were neither secret nor recent For 
years, the proprietors bad grap- 
pled with the industry’s labour 
problems: an overpaid workforce 
using outmoded equipment, 
overmanning, dosed shops and 
frequent wildcat strikes. 

Brenda Dean, general secretary 
of Sogat *82, came to national 
newspaper negotiations after 
many years in Manchester. She 
was appalled by what she found in 
Heet Street. “My job is to secure 
agreement by persuasion, cajoling, 
logic and sometimes force of 
personality based on other 
people’s belief in my sincerity and 
honesty,” she had said. “A skilled 
negotiator does not say to manage- 
ment 'pay up or you’ve got no 
paper tonight’.” 

The first time she had attended 


‘A Murdoch 
project is 

like a magic 
carpet. 
Suddenly 
you’re off’ 


London negotiations was at Times 
Newspapers after the 1 1-month 
shutdown in 1979. There were 56 
Cbapd Fathers (office branch 
chairmen) in the room. “It was 
negotiation with mob instincts,” 
Dean said. 

“Have you ever attended a Feet 
Street funeral?" she asked once 
“It’s like the Mafia.” And she had 
never forgotten the time when, on 
her election as general secretary in 
August 1983. a television camera- 


man wanted to film her standing 
in a machine room; he had to pay 
the Chapel Father £25 for the 
privilege. The salaries some 
earned amazed Dean. 

But some seasoned union of- 
ficials thought that Dean ap- 
proached talks with News 
International as if she were dealing 
with boy scouts. 

The major problem — for 
managements and national union 
officials alike — was the Chapels 
(office branches); their power was 
absolute and their Fathers (chair- 
men) were baron-like. 

Ray James, who always came to 
work in a conservative navy blue 
suit carrying a briefcase, led Heet 
Street's biggest Chapel, the Sun 
machine room. He had a reputa- 
tion for always being after more 
money and one of his favourite 
stories was about how he coerced a 
manager into paying for his home 
telephone rental. 

James would strike out at 
anybody, including those — like 
Bruce Matthews — for whom he 
had a grudging respect During 
one dispute, Matthews marched 
into James's office. “I said it was 
his F — firm but he was in my 
office.” recalled James, telling 
Matthews to leave. Sometimes it 


was better to do as James said. 

Whatever the problems, James . . 
never Mamed Murdoch. He 
thought him a reasonable 
“guv ’nor”. He had sent Murdoch 
a telegram of congratulation when 
he bought The Times and Mur- 
doch replied that it was “part icu- 
lariy pleasing” to have heard from 
him. 

It was m the composing rooms, 
where stories were set into type 
and made up as pages, that the 
resistance to new technology was 
fiercest. The typesetters (linotype 
operators) considered themselves 
an elite within an due — they even 
kept their wages secret from 
national union officials. Their 
Chapels (office branches) were all- 
powerful 

Most compositors can remem- 
ber a time when reaching £200 a 
week seemed an impossibility; by 
1985 Daily Express “comps” had 
leapt over the £1.100 a week 
hurdle and a 1 981 agreement at 
Murdoch's Sun guaranteed 
compositors £43.000 a year. 

The basis of their payments had 
been the “London scale of prices” 
which dated back 200 years: it 
guaranteed extra pay for setting 
different sizes of type, for setting 
corrections and even for leaving

A t this time of year the 
political situation in 
Bermuda, Hawaii, 
Puerto Rico and the Caribbean 
becomes Intensely interesting. 
Conversely, all politics in 
places snch as Buffalo, 
Milwaukee and Minneapolis 
becomes a crushing bore. This 
explains why, like geese, mem- 
bers of Congress migrate with 
the seasons. 

Common Cause, a self- 
styled watchdog body based in 
Washington, has discovered 
that not one member of Con- 
gress managed to squeeze in a 
visit to frozen Buffalo during 
last Christmas's recess. That 
would seem to demonstrate 
that the wretched town's high 
unemployment and crumbling 
steel plants do not constitute a 
serious political situation 
when there is snow on the 
ground. 

But members of Congress 
did go to Boca Raton, in 
Florida, and to Las Vegas, 
there to ponder politics on the 
son-soaked tennis court and 
golf course, aD expenses paid 
by those who needed to whis- 
per in Congress'S ear. 

Common Cause rail* these 
jonfcets “the hottest trend in 
Washington influence 
peddling”, which its research- 
ers uncovered by studying 
hu n d re ds of 1985 congres- 
sional financial disclosure 
statements. 

Ibe “speaking fee” is a 
tune-honoured institu- 
tion, a way of seizing a 
congressman's attention, giv- 
ing him a day or two out of 
town and a cheque for $2,000 
or more by way of thanks. Bat 
it is being surpassed by the 
luxurious junket, with fancy 
hotels and sumptuous meals, 
sometimes with the family 
invited along. 

Some examples: Senator 
Darid Durenberger. a Minne- 
sota Republican and member 
of the Senate Finance 
Committee, took his two sons

on a six-day trip to Puerto 
Rico during New Year's week 
at the expense of two groups 
seeking to protect tax credits 
for US corporations that op- 
erate there. 

Senator and Mrs Max Bau- 
cus, Representative Nick Ra- 
il a 11 (with gnest) and 
Representative and Mrs 
Glenn Anderson went on an 
expenses-paid Caribbean 
cruise in August, courtesy of 
three anise lines that are 
concerned about legislation 
affecting the industry. 

Representative Barbara 
KenneUy and her husband had 
a six-day stay in March at 
Pebble Beach near Carmel, 
California, paid for by the 
Connecticut Business and In- 
dustry Association. 

Under ethics rules members 
must not accept gifts worth 
more than 5 100 from groups, 
individuals or corporations 
with a direct interest In federal 
bus, although members can 
be reimbursed with travel 
expenses incurred in connec- 
tion with speaking engage- 
marts and fact-finding trips. 
The rules explicitly forbid 
members accepting holidays 
or gifts from groups that have 
a direct interest in legislation 
before congress. 


Common Cause argues that 
by using creative interpreta- 
tions of the rules, many mem- 
bers and special interest 
groups have found a way to 
cloak free family holidays in 
the guise of legitimate 
reimbursements for speaking 
and fact-finding trips, “in 
many cases, particularly in the 
House of Representatives, 
members fail to report essen- 
tial information about their 
travels, making it difficult for 
the Press or the public to learn 
who is taking whom where and 
at what expense,” it notes. 

Few members, for example, 
divulge the dollar value of the 
trips on their annual financial 
disclosure statements, nor bow 
long they stayed. 

R epresentative Dan 
Rosteukowski, chair- 
man of the powerful 
Ways and Means Committee 
— who was severely criticized 
In 1982 when it was revealed 
that he spent more than 45 
days Out of town at special 
interest groups' expense — no 
longer provides details of his 
destinations on his disclosure 
form. But in 1985 be reported 
reimbursement for 36 trips. 
Rostenkowski's outside 

earnings are legendary on 
Capitol HflL An ordinary 
congressman earns $75,100, 
and honoraria are limited to 30 
per emit of that Anything 
more most be given to charity. 
In 1984 Rostenkowski polled 
in S93R00, which rose to 
$137,500 last year: charities 
do well out of him. 

The speaking fee has be- 
come an honourable way for a 
member of Congress to add 
$25,000 to his basic income 
(which all congressmen regard 
as being ridiculously low), but 
the newly arrived junket 
seems a shady addition to the 
influence-buying business.

.The (Hint revolution: linotype operators (inset) used to set stories into metal type; now journalists use computerized keyboards and screens 


space between lines - a compos- 
itor could set 50 lines and be paid 
as if he had set 250. Disputes were 
. not only about mouev and con- 
ditions: they often involved the 
content of the papers. Fleet Street 
trade unions donated more than 
£1 million during the l <>84-85

of pessimism, that if the miners 
, lost the primers would be nest 
K Throughout the strike the Sim 
stridently supported the Govern- 
ment and some editorials and 
stories enraged union activists. 

. . .In January IMS4. during the 
miners* overtime ban. the Sun 
. . decided to run a ballot: “Miners. 
Tell us what you really think. This 
is the ballot Arthur Scargil! won't 
give vou." The ballot form was set 


in metal but John Brown. Imperial 
Father of the composing room 
(head of all thcChapelscombined) 
told the man putting the story into 
the page to stop work.

Brown and Kelvin MacKenzie, 
Editor of the Sun, in which Brown 
demanded that MacKenzie run a 
disclaimer from the union. After 
two hours. MacKenzie agreed and 
he was also forced to run a 300- 
word article by Scargiil the next 
day. 

On another occasion MacKen- 
/ic refused to back down when the 
unions would not handle an 
editorial which said that too many 
miners, having been the salt of the 
earth, had become “the scum of 
the earth**. The dispute eventually 


kept the Sun off the streets for four 
days, much of it because of a row 
over which chapels should and 
should not be paid for the night 
the dispute began. 

It was against this background 
that Murdoch had called the Sew 
York meeting. It ended late in the 
afternoon and Murdoch's exec- 
utives, left with much to do. One 
key executive. John Keating. 
Murdoch's technical director, had 
a phone call to make that would 
change the face of the British 
newspaper industry forever.

Foul-mouthed fury 


W hen commenting 
on the problems be 
faced with the Brit- 
ish print onions, 
Rupert Murdoch 
would frequently mention one 
machine room~“I could go to my 
machine room at The Sunday 
Times , 500 people were employed 
there, I cmU never count more 
than 60 people at work at the 
same time. There wasn't much 
work going on.” 

On Saturday, January 11 this 
year — two weeks before the strike 
started — some Sunday Times 
printers saw the second edition 
copy anno tracing that a special 
supplement would be printed at 
Wapping a week later. They 
visited the machine room to see 
Roy “Ginger” Wilson. Wilson, 
Father of the Sunday Times Sogat 
machine Chapel, had a legendary 
reputation. He bad once swum the 
Thames for a bet and emerged so 
filthy that his men took him back 
to the machine room and threw 
buckets of water over him. 

An enormous, bullish man with 
a thick neck and bnge hands, his 
closely-cropped hair is still 
sandy, though he Is nearing sixty. 
His language is appalling. He 
seemed always on the verge of 
explosion. “What have yon done 
about it?” Wilson asked when he 
read the copy for the special 
section. “You've set the t — thing 
I suppose?” Wilson was becoming 
fed up with other chapels In die 
boil ding always relying on the 
machine men for action. After the 
compositors had left his office, 
Brenda Dean rang. She told him 
there were certain guarantees and 
that Wilson's men should print 
“1 was choked,” he said. 

But Wilson did not leave it 
tii ere. He toured the braiding in a 
rage until he fonnd Bill Gillespie, 
then managing director of Tunes 
Newspapers, who was with BiO 
O'Neill. Murdoch's vice-presi- 
dent for personnel and labour 
relations. “I went potty,” said 
Wilson. He told them they were 
dirty bastards. “You've taken the 
pas out of ns.” An overseer was 
so frightened he left the room. 

“Who do you think you are?” 
Wilson said to O'Neill, who was 
wearing a sou’wester with the 
words “Boston Bears” on the 
front “You're a bully boy and 
you're going to f — well crane 
unstuck. IT you do this again you 
won't get any movement at alL” 

Wilson had met O'Neill during 
negotiations over the Past in 
October last year. “He called ns 
■you guys',” said Wilson. “If 
there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s 



Roy “Ginger” Wilson, head of the Sunday Times machine men 


yankee talk like that He said it 
(the confrontation over Wapping) 
would be Ukeagunfightand when 
the dust had settled, whoever was 
left s tanding had won. I told him 
Td shoot him in the hade.” 

O nce, when Murdoch 
toured the Sunday 
Times machine room, 
Wilson claims to have 
told him: “If you don't 
piss off HI do you for 
harassment” 

He was equally abusive to 
Andrew Neil, Editor of The 
Sunday Tima. Wilson would call 
him ‘Andy baby' or ‘Sonny*. 

Although Wilson had held off 
on Dean's in s tr u ctio n s over the 
January 12 announcement of the 
special supplement he was less 
pliant on January 18, when the 
supplement was due to be printed 
at Wapping. The rest of the 
paper, as nsnaL, was being printed 
at Gray's Inn Road, but Wilson 
told his people “they conld pull it 
We would put the plates on and 
then destroy it” 

At midday on January 18, Dean 
called Wilson to a meeting. He 
left, telling the men: “Don’t do f— 
all before I get hack.” Tony 
Dubbins of the NGA was at the 
meeting, along with Dean, other 
Sogat officials, and Tony Isaacs, 
Imperial Father of the News of the 
World machine room ChapeL 


Dubbins told them the unions 
were being provoked; the ballot 
for a strike had already been held 
but they should await the result 
before taking action. 

• Wilson, said Dubbins later, 
“was vehement in his views”. 
Wilson said: “They pleaded with 
ns to print. 1 could not accept it. If 
they got the paper out with scab 
labour, we might as well give up 
the ghost.” Bnt they persuaded 
him — Wilson found it hard to 
argue with Dean. “She's a 
woman,” he said. 

Bnt at 4pm Wilson called a 
meeting of his men. About 400 
were there. “There was a patter of 
tiny feet,” he recalls. “In came 
Bill Gillespie. He says to me 
“unless you are hack at work in 
five minutes you're all fired'. I 
told him if he stayed a minute 
longer he'd be lynched.” 

Wilson told his men to prepare 
the presses, but be also said: “Be 
my guest, boys — I don't expect 
you to pay attention to fine detail. 
We wfl] do it our way tonight.” 
Half the edition was tost 

Although the strike ballot re- 
sult would not be announced until 
later in the week, everyone knew 
it would be a rote for action. 
When Wilson left the building at 
630 on the Sunday morning, he 
thought he was entering a strike 
like any other.

The murders of 


Karen Hadaway and 


Nicola Fellows 


(above) have left their 
families devastated 


Peter Evans talks to 


parents who have 


suffered the same fate 


and have formed a 


grqup to help them 
cope with the grief 





P eople may cross the road 
to avoid speaking to 
them. They need the 
chance of help, but al- 
most no one knows what 
kind to give. They are the 
Parents of Murdered Children, and 
their lives will never be the same 
again. The group, which is helping 
45 families of children in many 
parts of Britain who were victims of 
murder or manslaughter, provides 
them with a chance to come to 
terms with themselves. 

People lend to avoid parents of 
murdered children because, if they 
have not shared the experience, they 
do not know what it is like or are not 
quite sure what to say; they want to 
steer clear of something too big for 
them to cope with. M It makes you 
feel isolated”, parents say. “like a 
leper”. Mr John Patient, who lost a 
daughter, said of those who passed 
by: “If only someone had just 
waved and gone on I could have 
accepted it.” Mrs Heather Howden, 
a member of the group, actually 
takes the initiative to put people at 
their ease. 

The group is a way out of 
isolation. The parents say they can 
let their hair down, laugh or cry or 
release their anger in calls for capital 
punishment. Beneath the convivial- 


Sharing the heartbreak, parents whose children have been murdered: (from left) John Patient, Ann Robinson, June Patient, Wendy Turner,

confirmation that there is life after 
death.” There are mixed feelings 
about religion. Mrs Margaret Buttle, 
whose son was killed, said: “Why 
did 1 bring up my kids in a Christian 
way. when this can happen?" Be- 
cause of the strength of her feelings 
towards his assailants, she does not 
go to church anymore. She cannot 
ask to have her trespasses forgiven 
as she would forgive those who have 
trespassed against her. “I would feel 
a hypocrite", she said. 

When there is a murder the rest of 
the family suffers too, not least 
because parents are frightened to let 
children out of their sight They 
suffer nightmares and one girl now 


The feeling that is so 
difficult to come to 
terms with is sheer 
horror at the way they 
have actually died’ 


ity of a meeting in the Enfield home 


of one murder victim there was 
obvious pain and tension, a search 
to come to terms with the horror 
they have experienced. Eight fam- 
ilies were represented that 
afternoon. 

Above all they can talk about 
their children almost as if they were 
alive, passing photographs round 
like any other family. Mrs Ann 
Robinson, the group’s co-ordinator, 
said: “We feel that because we have 
come together, all the children have 
come together too.” 

Mr David Howden, who lost his 
daughter Tessa, aged 19, on January 
10. said: “You can't accept that ail 
that love and those thoughts and 
aspirations have gone." His wife has 
read books on reincarnation. 

Most of the parents have been to 
spiritualists. One said: “You go for 


17, said: “My childhood ended at 
nine when my brother was 
murdered." 

Lives can be shattered. One 
parent has, through ill-health as a 
result of his daughter's death, 
sacrificed more than £20,000 in lost 
business. 

Anniversaries are the worst times. 
Mrs Robinson said a lot of the 
feelings the parents had would arise 
over the death of any child, no 
matter how it occurred. “The part 
that is so difficult to come to terms 
with is the sheer horror of the way 
they actually die. I have physically 
vomited because the anniversary is 
coming up." 

She was in Germany with her 
soldier husband when her son, aged 
13, was murdered on his way to a 
youth club. 

Christmas brings few tidings of 
comfort and joy, rather a bleak 
sense of loss. Mr Jack Heathfield 
said his 28-year-old daughter died 
on October 9, 1981. “Nobody got 


any presents. There was no more 
Christmas shopping. No Christinas 
meal. We do have one now. But 
now it is just another roast. It is 
false." 

Mrs Buttle said: “I have never put 
up decorations." 

Tragedy has drawn Mrs Daphne 
Vaughan and Mrs Joyoe Sadler 
together in their expressions of grief 
Robert Vaughan, aged 17, and 
Michelle Sadler, of the same age. 
were killed in February 1984. "They 
are both buried in the same grave." 
Mrs Sadler said. “We were only 
allowed to see them once, at the 
Coroner’s Court at Southwark. That 
was through a glass screen. We 
would have liked to see them a 
couple more times." 

She took a photograph of Mi- 
chelle to put in the coffin. “Unless 
I'm picked up I have to take two 
buses to go to the cemetery. I go 
once a fortnight I also go on the day 
they were murdered and on their 
birthdays with Mr and Mrs 
Vaughan. It was Robert's 20th 
birthday on August 15.” 

Speaking from her home, Mrs 
Sadler sai± I sit her for hours. I 
think about what she had gone 
through. We never knew the 
motive. I suffer from a blocked 
memory. I imagine it was the shock. 
I can't sleep. I'm frightened of being 
alone." 


daughter of John and Wendy 
Turner, was murdered in France 
while studying A level French on an 
exchange from a college. Mr and 
Mrs Turner and the French police 
were under the impression that they 
would be met by someone from the 
British Embassy in Paris, but they 
were not. “We phoned the embassy 
for help while we were there but 
they didn't help, and we com- 
plained afterwards through an MP. 
They said they had done everything 
they could in getting her out of the 
country." 

Mr and Mrs Turner say they were 
told by the police to go home after 
being shown the scene of the murder 


‘We had no one to 
come, like a social 
worker, and offer a 
shoulder we could 
have leant on 9 


and the body in the mortuary. “We 
refused to leave unless we took her 
body with us.” They had to pay fora 
private aircraft to get Samantha's 


Her flat was empty and she had not 
gone to work. After persistent calls 
to the police station, he said, they 
told him they would put her on the 
missing list. “We had no one to 
come, like a social worker, and offer 
a shoulder we could have leant on. 
Although we were Christians we 
were not church-goers, but the local 
vicar got to hear of the problem and 
came to us.” 

The group is within Com- 
passionate Friends, a self-help 
organization for bereaved parents. 
The National Association of Vic- 
tims Support Schemes is providing 
experience and backing. A project 
has been set up in Essex to. give 
more aid to families of murder and 
manslaughter victims. Other agen- 
cies involved include police, the 
probation service and Cruse, which 
handles all kinds of bereavement 

Miss Helen Reeves, director of 
NAVSS, said it dealt with the police, 
courts, compensation and possibly 
funerals. If necessary it would refer 
people either to Cruse or Com- 
passionate Friends.. 

Now NAVSS has decided to 
provide, in London, the first inner- 
city counselling scheme to hei

Though she praised the police for 
the way they looked after the 
mourners at the funeral, and Mrs 
Vaughan said they were marvellous 
in supporting them at the trial, there 
were misgivings. Mrs Vaughan said; 
“I felt threatened by the police 
attitude. You don't know how to 
behave. I expected the police to be 
sympathetic, but they weren't I

system, because we could have done

later they were extremely

The ambivalence towards police 
and other officialdom came out 
most strongly in cases that had 
happened abroad. Samantha,

The 1 3-year-old daughter of John 
and June Patient was in New 
Zealand with them when she was 
murdered. Mr Patient is a roofer. It 
cost twice as much as the passenger 
fere to bring their daughter borne 
with them. Her assailant has never 
been caught. 

One of the most distressing 
aspects of their case is that they do 
not know to whom to turn for 
information. They say there is no 
one to answer questions at the main 
police station in Auckland. Mr 
Patient said: “I wrote 10 weeks ago 
asking for my daughter’s earrings 
and ring. I have had no reply." 

Mr Heathfield had the appalling 
experience of finding his daughter's 
body in a boiler-room under her flat 
in Camberwell, south-west London.

Reeves said. “We want a paid 
person to set up a training pro- 
gramme, co-ordinate work and 
monitor it” 

The need is urgent “We have so 
many strong- emotions and ir-. 
rational thoughts and feelings " Mrs 
Robinson said. “Some people think 
they are going out of their minds 
and it helps them to know other 
peqple with similar feelings. Be- 
cause there are people in the same 
position it gives you hope. For die 
first two or three years you feel you 
don’t want to live, then you have 
other responsibilities to keep you 
going. I know of only two bereaved 
parents, not in the group, who have 
committed suicide. Most of them 
do find some sort of inner strength 
to go on.”

TALKBACK 


1 read Colin Duncan on friend- 
ship (Wednesday Page, Octo- 
ber 8) with a degree of concern. 
The article undermines the 
depth of feeling which often 
exists between women friends, 
by portraying the frivolous 
manner in which snch 
relationships are formed. 

Mm may well be more 
reticent and selective when 
making friends, but this does 


not mean that they value them 
more. It indicates rather that 
they take longer In deciding 
with whom they have the most 
in common, and whether he 
will prove to be a valuable 
friend. 

This takes time. Women are 
neither willing, nor particu- 
larly capable, of dealing with 
long gaps of loneliness and 
will therefore make many 
acquaintances. This inherent 


gregariousness does not al- 
ways result In “flippant 
rapports". 

It just allows us the freedom 
of wider choice, to find the few 
dose and trustworthy friends 
we too cherish for life.

Colin Duncan is to be 
congratulated on bringing to 
the public the qualities of 
journalism of a bygone age. Do

The plain truth 
about beauty 


American research 


confirms what we 


have always thought: 


a woman's face is 


often her fortune 


If you believe that psycholo- 
fluent 


gists have a solicitor’s fluency 
to make the obvious sound 
profound, take.heart from the 
results of sortie- American 
research. The: findings reveal 
that very attractive women 
have adecidedadvantageover . 
their less attractive peers, and 
that Aristotle was right when 
be concluded that beauty was 
a better recommendation than 
any letter of introduction. 

These and other truisms are 
contained in the successful 
doctoral thesis, “Benefits Of 
Beauty”, submitted by one Ms 
Deborah Then/ who studied 
social and organ izational 
psychology at the Stanford 
University School of Educa- 
tion in California. (One would 
have thought that average 
eyesight and even a cursory 
acquaintance with the films 
and TV programmes ! of 
nearby Hollywood would 
have rendered such a disserta- 
tion superfluous, but then it is 
never easy to select an accept- 
able topic for a PhD thesis-) 

In fairness to doughty Deb- 
orah, it must be said that when 
she was' discussing her plans 
with her professor,' he (of 
course) dismissed the idea of' 
measuring the impact of phys- 
ical attractiveness as an un- 
important woman’s issue. But 
'when she came bade to tell 
him she had decided to go 
ahead, she found him leafing 
through photographs of. 
undergraduates : and 

complaining there were no 
good-lookiiig women among 
them. After that, there was no 
stopping Ms Then. 

She set about her research 
with vigour and discipline. 
First she collected 99 photo- 
graphs (why not 100?) of 
students attending a business 
school in Eastern USA. In- 
explicably they were all smil- 
ing Caucasians, in obvious 
defiance of the “Mack is 
beautiful" proposition. None 
wore glasses, in possible def- 
erence- to Dorothy Parker V 
warning that “men - don't 
•make - passes at women in - 
glasses", and none (women par. 
men) sprouted any fedal hair. 
Twelve Stanford students, six 
males and six females, were 
then asked to judge the looks 
of each person on a scale of 
one to five. 


suitable co-workers and (b) as 
a potential friend or date. 

After all that effort and 
time. Ms Then found that 
broadly speaking most people 
-'considered beauty 10 be very 
important, though “average- 
looking’’ women topped the 
list of desired co-workers (fol- 
lowed by ■ average-looking 
men). This supported her 
thesis that “in work-related 
evaluations, neither extremely 
attractive nor unattractive in- 
.dividuals are desired as co- 
workers . . . because in some 
work situations, me n an d 
women don’t want the distrac- 
tion of an exceptionally good- 
looking co- worker”. 

Less surprisingly, very 
attractive females topped the 
. list of most desired friends, 
with very unattractive females 
at the bottom of the league 
table. The same gradation 
applied to potential dales. As 
Ms Then primly puts it: 
“Social desirability seems to 
be in direct proportion to any 
individual's physical 
attractiveness". But she de- 
. tected a significant difference 
. between the attitudes of the 
two sexes: “Men tend to prize 



beauty more, while . women 
cite a man's earning capacity 
as the most important cri- 
terion for date-selection", 
confirming what many a luck- 
less Lothario has discovered 
to his not insignificant cost 


From this original batch, 
Ms Then selected 12 photo- 
graphs for the final test These 
were qplit into three groups of 
four, judged' by the previous 
panel as being . "very 
attractive", . “average" and 
“very unattractive”'. Armed 
with these photos of six men 
and six Women. 'Ms Then, 
attached them to a fictitious 
curriculum vitae and asked 72 
Stanford students (divided

In a valiant effort to placate 
militant feminists and give 
hope to plain Japes, Ms Then 
says we should not become 
paranoid about our looks. But 
women should be aware of the 
contradictory demands made 
on them by a male-oriented 
society: they must be attrac- 
tive to be desirable but are 
considered vain if they care 
about their looks. She argues 
that it is society which stresses 
the importance of good looks, 
and not women, who are 
simply reacting to a world in 
which men set the standards. 


Unfortunately, Ms Then 
makes no suggestions as to 
how this state of affairs could 
be changed. Until she or 
another psychologist comes 
up with the answer “average 
and very unattractive, women 
might find solace in the words 
of Socrates that beauty is 
nothing but a short-lived 
tyranny".

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Lost for 
words 

Government officials who attend 
a meeting at the English Speakin 
Union in London today shoul 
not be surprised by the absence of 
the main speaker. General Indar 
Jit Rikhye. A distinguished Indian 
soldier and former military ad- 
viser to the United Nations, he has 
fallen foul of the new visa restric- 
tions which have resulted in huge 
queues at Heathrow. Rikhye was 
due to speak on “Western Europe 
and Peacekeeping Worldwide”, 
but was told in Bombay that the 
new rules made his visit to 
London impossible; he promptly 
left for America, where he now 
lives. When I contacted his wife in 
New York last night she was 
diplomatically unTorthcoming. 
Organizers of the meeting were 
more blunt: “It's an international 
scandal”, said one.

Kitcatt break 

MPs will return to the Commons 
tomorrow to find that the Speaker 
is about to appoint a new sec- 
retary. The congenial Bill Beau- 
mont is to retire soon, and his 
successor will be Peter Kitcatt. a 
senior civil servant who until last 
Friday was the Treasury's watch- 
dog on defence spending. This 
may be something of a break for 
Kitcatt who. if not as brittle as his 
confectionary namesake, keeps his 
flavour under wraps. “I am very 
much looking forward to it,” he 
told me yesterday. And then, with 
all the self-projection of a Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, “I have a very 
ordinary Civil Service 
background.” And yet. at the age 
of 58 he is taking on a daunting 
job, for which a fiat in the Palace 
of Westminster is at least some 
compensation for the ghastly 
hours. If Kitcatt runs into diffi- 
culties during the early days, help 
will always be qear at hand: he 
lives in Croydon, the north-east of 
which is Bernard WeatherilTs own 
constituency. 

• Since when has freedom been a 
thing of shame? An ad for die 
right-wing Freedom Association 
inviting readers to send for its 
booklet “exposing Marx and Eng- 
els as racists” aids: “It will be sent 
to yon in a plain cover”. 

Double-edged 

With the grind of another par- 
liamentary session almost upon 
her, Mrs Thatcher must be looking 
forward with ever keener anticipa- 
tion to retirement to her neo- 
Georgian fortress in Dulwich. But 
a word of caution. In its latest 
newsletter, the local Labour Party 
points out that Dulwich is the 
second most marginal Tory seal in 
London (1983 majority 1,859) 
and confidently asserts: "Mrs 
Thatcher will be represented by a 
Labour MP.” Good knockabout 
politics that could, however, re- 
bound. Faced with such a pros- 
pect, she might decide to stay at 
No 10 forever.

Seven months to May 1987; 12 
months to October 1987; 19 to 
May 1988. By any reckoning the 
next election is not for away. 

British election campaigns are 
brief and the exact date is seldom 
announced more than a month in 
advance. But they always cast a 
long shadow before — and it seems 
to be getting longer. In the United 
States every fourth year of govern- 
ment is paralysed by a presidential 
election. By the time we cast our 
votes on the party to lead Britain 
into the 1990s we may fed we 
have gone through a similarly 
elongated trauma. 

Last May Ladbrokes was quot- 
ing Labour, at 11-8 on, as 
favourites to get most seats. Today 
the Conservatives, at 13-8 on, are 
preferred. The odds will certainly 
move again. We have got used to 
volatile voters. 

Five years ago. within a mere 18 
months each of the parties at one 
point dropped to 27 per cent or 
less in the polls and at another 
touched 50 per cent During the 
1983 campaign Alliance support 
went down to 13 per cent and up 
to 28 per cent. Within the last 
year, each of the three parties has 
been on top in more than one 
national survey. 

Polls this year do suggest a new 
stabilization. Since Neil Kinnock 
became leader. Labour has never 
fellen below a third of the vote in 
MORI'S monthly polls and since 
January has stayed between 36 
and 37 per cent The Alliance in 
that time has registered between 
20 and 29 per cent But a 
continuation of this general stabil- 
ity cannot be taken for granted. 

The basic arithmetic of the next 
election is worth repealing. 
Assuming uniform nationwide 
movements from the 1983 results. 
Labour and the Conservatives 
alike need at least 38 per cent of 
the vote to get a clear majority 
with 326 seats; the Alliance, with 
its strength more evenly spread, 
must get a daunting 42 per cent. 

As Labour and the Conser- 
vatives strive for that goal, neither 
knows how to treat the Alliance's 
supporters. Should they be won 
over with smiles and soft words? 
Or are they to be hounded 
roughly, with the risk that they 
might be driven into the rival pen? 

So far both Conservative and 
Labour have done their best to 


Guessing game 
all round in 
quest for votes 

by David Butler 


ignore the Alliance. It was notable 
how little of the oratory at 
Blackpool and at Bournemouth 
was directed against the two 
Davids and their followers. (Since 
two out of three Conservative 
MPs had an Alliance candidate as 
runner-up in 1983, this stood out 
starkly at Bournemouth). _ 

If in the next election the 
Conservative and Labour guns 
stay trained on each other, and 
they score hits on each other's 
credibility, where wifi the disillu- 
sioned voters go? Surely they are 
more likely to take refuge in the 
Alliance's middle-of-the-road ha- 
ven than to cross to the other side. 

However, for the moment To- 
ries and Labour come out of the 
conference season with for more 
grounds for optimism than the 
Alliance. The Conservatives are 
united and cheerful and breathing 
down Labour's neck in the polls. 
One has to go back 33 years to find 
a governing party in a better 
position IS months before an 
election. 

Yet the Conservatives do have 
to cope with their record on 


unemployment and their “un- 
caring" image. They are seen less 
favourably than Labour on afi the 
key welfare issues — health, educa- 
tion, housing and pensions. They 
preside over an economy with an 
uncertain outlook. They are. as the 
party m power, more liable to be 
the victims of unforeseen mishaps 
or scandals. And after seven years 
in office they cannot readily put 
the blame cm others. 

Labour can riaixn that Ned 
Kinnock now looks a true party 
leader and that his party is more 
united, and wish a higher standing 
in the polls, than so. almost any 
palm in the last decade: Yet 
despite Kinnock’s skilful manage- 
ment; Labour can never be sure 
that its own divisions will not 
discredit it, with left-wingers 
presenting ammunuioc to the 
enemy. More seriously, the polls 
suggest that Labour is vulnerable 
on the central issues of disarma- 
ment ("Labour will leave us 
defenceless”) and higher public 
spending (“Where's tire money 
coming from?”). 

There is also the spectre of what 


the stock market and foreign 
exchanges might do if. as the vote 
drew near, the polls were forecast- 
ing a labour victory. Would an 
avalanche of selling and a flight of 
capital provoke a robust rallying 
of support or, more probably, a 
switch of allegiance? 

The All iance has not had a good 

month but it can point to the 
summer by-elections - triumph ax 
Ryedaie and near-misses in West 
Derbyshire and Newcastle-under- 
Lyme. In the by-elections this year 
(and indeed of the whole par- 
liament) the Alliance has won 
appreciably more votes than ei- 
ther Conservative or Labour, and 
in local by-elections it also does 
wdL Its weakness in recent opin- 
ion polls may obscure an under- 



iowever, tire Alliance, depen- 
dent upon disillusion with Labour 
and even more with the Conser- 
vatives, must feel queasy. The big 
parties have formidable resources, 
lire Liberal assembly vote on 
defence was a damaging blow. 
Owen and Steel will doubtless 
patch up a compromise, and when 
the election comes and gives them 
a fair share of time on the box they 
may count on their telegenic 
charm to win back some support. 
But in the last resort they may be 
crowded out of tire big battle 
unless one or both of the major 
contenders mishandles its case. 

The uncertainties are manifold. 
As the past week has shown, 
summitry, m which Britain has no 
part, can transform the defence 
argument Oil politics and world 
price movements, which Britain 
cannot influence, can transform 
the economic situation. By-elec- 
tions, party squabbles or. alas, 
terrorist bombs can transform the 
political scene. 

Over the past month my own 
betting odds have marginally 
changed to favour tire Conser- 
vatives. Today I would suggest 
that it is 40 per cent likely that the 
election will produce a hung 
parliament; 35 per cent likely that 
there will be a clear Conservative 
majority, and 25 per cent that 
there wifi be a dear Labour 
majority. Only one thing is cer- 
tain: those probabilities will alter 
several times between now and 
polling day. 

Q TtaM Nmqpfpm, 19ML 

The author is a fellow of Nuffield 
College. Oxford. 


The recent correspondence about 
bats may well have provided for 
many people the first intimation 
that it is now a serious criminal 
offence, with substantial penalties, 
to disturb a bat; if you find a 
colony ofbats in your loft and take 
them, gently arid without even 
frightening them, to a hollow tree 
in your garden, you are liable to be 
prosecuted and fined up to £1,000. 

I am not making this up, and it 
is not a joke. The bat law was 
slipped, a year or two ago, into a 
wider measure; but however it got 
there, nobody in Parliament 
pointed out that it was an outrage, 
so Britain now has a law which 
makes a criminal out of anyone 
found guilty of annoying a bat. 

That does have its comic side, I 
agree, though its implications are 
not in the least funny. And I want 
to mention another episode which 
has a number of similarities to the 
bat story. You may recall that the 
measure originally proposed for 
making compulsory the wearing of 
seat-belts in the front of motor- 
cars was defeated in Parliament 
Normally, such a defeat would 
have been accepted (compare the 
rejection of the Sunday trading 
proposals), but the lobby which 
was determined to compel motor- 
ists to fasten their seat-belts 
refused to abandon their cam- 
paign, and they had only to wait a 
short while for victory. 

There is no point in going over 
that argument again, but there has 
been one important sequel. No 
mention was made by the seat-belt 
lobby during the campaign of 
extending the legislation to pas- 
sengers in the back seats; we were 
carefully given to understand that 
the lobby had no further demands. 
But as soon as the measure 
became law, they began to de- 
mand that it should be extended. 
Whether it is good or bad to fasten 
seat-belts in the back of a car is not 
the point; the point will be how we 
were compelled to, and by whom, 
and with what motives they acted. 

I have never believed that our 
democracy is likely to foil in a 
coup organized by Mr Bernie 
Grant, Mr Ted Knight and Mr 
Derek Hatton; our political centre 
of gravity is set reassuringly low. 
"Hiough we should bear in mind 
that after the next general election, 
even if the Labour Party does not 
win iu there will be scores of MPs 
who reject parliamentary demoo 
racy altogether.) The frontal as- 
sault on our society can be 
frontally met, and contained; but 
there is also the indirect approach 
to be considered. 

I have written a good deal in 
the last couple of years, about the 
Single Issue Fanatics, those 
monomaniacal figures whose en- 
tire lives are given over to one, 
usually very narrow, cause, and in 
whose seething brains there has ' 
grown up the notion that their 
cause permits them any action 
whatever, including serious crim- 
inal damage to property and 
physical violence to people. But I 
believe that these groups, though 
they are much more than a 
nuisance, will not seriously harm 
our society or our democracy. But 
there is another route into the 
citadel, and it is. at present at least 
not well guarded. 

We are familiar with extremists 
of the Right and extremists of the 
Left. Now. I think, it is time to 
face the fact that we are in danger 
from extremists of the Centre. 

These are people who would 
never commit crimes for their 
cause, much less injure other 
human beings; they do not have 
the blind stare and unreachable 
mind of the Single Issue Fanatics; 
they are even, in some ways, 
admirable citizens. But what 
makes them dangerous is their 
suffocating sense of their own 
rectitude. 

The new Army of the Righteous 
are few in number, but great and 
growing in influence- Unlike the 


Bernard Levin

strapped in 
the back seat 



familiar enemies of freedom, and 
most of the Single Issue Fanatics, 
they rarely claim to speak for 
millions; they claim only, but 
implacably, that they know what 
is best for us alL These people are 
the Moral Minority; they have no 
regard for democracy, not because 
they are totalitarian at heart but 
because they are so unshakeably 
convinced that theirs, and theirs 
alone, is the right path, that they 
will go to any lengths to impose 
upon millions who reject their 
beliefs the obligation to conform 
to them. 

. I do not exaggerate their convic- 
tion; one of the less 
aspects of the Honeyford affair 
was revealed in a thoughtful, 
impartial and well-researched 
study of it published when it was 
all oyer. The dominant charac- 
teristic of those running the 
campaign against Mr Honeyford 
was found to be that they were 
literally unable to conceive of the 
possibility that they might be 
wrong 

Let us now look in some detail 
at the aims and methods of the 
Moraj Minority. Its most obvious 
sub-division — in their behaviour 
probably also the nastiest - are the 
anti-smoking extremists, whose 
language and demands have long 
since taken on the foil flavour of 
the persecutor, of course, smoking 
is very dangerous, but they are not 
content to point that out to those 
actually or potentially is danger, 
let alone to help and encourage 
them to abandon or resist the 
habit No. they know what is 
right for us. and they will not rest 
until they have made smoking a 
criminal offence; the argument 
that in a democrat^ adults should 
be allowed to decide such matters 
for themselves simply cannot be 
got into their heads, for at heart 
they are simply not democrats. 

Nor - and they will soon be as 
powerful and nasty as the ami- 
smoking extremists — are the food 
persecutors, that pestilent group 
who are in turn unable to confine 
themselves to pointing out the 


Paula Youana 

unhealthy nature of much of what 
we eat and insisting that the 
contents of packaged food should 
be fully and intelligibly described; 
they, too, are now demanding that 
we must be forbidden to eat the 
tilings they think are bad for us. 

Some of the Moral Minority's 
actions are for worse, because they 
attack democracy at the roots. 
Anyone who followed the scandal 
of the recent archaeological con- 
gress at Southampton University, 
from which all South African 
participants were banned, will 
recognize the characteristic im- 
pulse. in this case multiplied by 
the now characteristic cowardice 
of university authorities; that 
impulse is in its essence no 
different from antisemitism, for 
the common element in both is 
that condemnation and exclusion 
are applied on one. irrelevant 
criterion. In antisemitism, a Jew is 
penalized for being a Jew: no 
consideration is given to the 
question of whether he is a good 
Jew or a bad one. Similarly, the 
South African archaeologists were 
banned because they were South 
Africans, not because they were 
lovers of apartheid. (As it chanced, 
they had all been consistent and 
outspoken opponents of it but 
even if they bad not been it would 
have made no difference to their 
quality as archaeologists, which is 
all that should have concerned the 
organizers.) 

Nor are the Moral Minority by 
any means all unofficial let alone 
freelances. Thai lazar-house. the 
Home Office, is crawling with 
them, as a glance at the case of the 
two-year-old Pakistani child. 
Khuram Azad will make clear. 
The only point in the business that 
needs to be understood is that he 
would have been legally entitled to 
live here once certain procedures, 
which had long been under way 
but might lake another month or 
two. were completed in 
Pakistan:but the Home Office 
insisted that he should be sent 
back there, ( How can God hope to 
be taken seriously in professing a 
wish' to be believed in. if phenom- 


ena like David Waddington are 
permitted to exist?) 

The demonstrators who pre- 
vented even the preliminary in- 
vestigation of possible sites for the 
burial of nuclear waste were 
genuinely shocked and indignant 
at being called, in this paper's 
editorial columns, “middle-class 
hooligans”. Assuming that it was 
the hooligan part of the descrip- 
tion that offended them rather 
than the accusation that they 
belong to the middle class, the 
reaction is significant; their belief 
that they are entitled to stop other 
people canying out lawful busi- 
ness (because they, and they alone, 
are possessed of all the justice, 
morality and troth that is going) 
has so armoured them against any 
selfquestioning that when the 
armour is so brutally pierced they 
fed truly, and deeply, wronged 
(CND, of course, has been built 
almost entirely on such founda- 
tions.) 

The preferred journal of opin- 
ion of the Moral Minority is The 
Guardian, as anyone will know 
who recalls that wonderfully 
sickening leader advocating the 
abolition of the Last Night of the 
Proms because singing “Land of 
Hope and Glory” is a moral crime 
even worse than drinking South 
African orange juke. But the 
Moral Minority need no tuition in 
smugness, certainty and an un- 
shakeable belief in the purity of 
their own motives. 

Just listen to this, from the New 
York correspondent of the Daily 
Telegraph : 

The American television network, 
NBC under pressure from femi- 
nists. has ruled that Miss 
America’s statistics are not so 
vital after alL As a result 
— American males will no 
longer learn bust, waist and hip 
measurements of the 51 contes- 
tants . . . The producer, Karen 
Aarons, is unrepentant about her 
decision. “Measurements are 
superfluous. They serve no other 
purpose than the public's 
curiosity”. 

You will conclude that the 
Moral Minority had been at work. 
But for more significant is the 
attitude of the producer ”... no 
other purpose than the public's 
curiosity”. No matter that the 
public is what Miss Aarons is there 
to serve, nor even that the public 
pays her wages; she has decided 
that the publk's curiosity must 
not be satisfied 

In these matters, Britain lags 
only a little behind America. 
There are already people here who 
harass and bully those who write 
Miss and Mrs rather than Ms, or 
who propose research into the 
respective achievements of dif- 
ferent races, or who prefer to hire 
pretty stewardesses for their air- 
lines rather than the first -ones to 
apply, however ugly, or who run 
over a dog rather than risk the 
safety of human beings, or who 
prefer the interests of the living to 
those of posterity. 

There is a widespread belief in 
Britain that the only threat to the 
stability of our democracy comes 
from violence. I believe that view 
is mistaken. But the actions of the 
Moral Minority, because they 
work more quietly and more 
decorously, are more difficult to 
detect, let alone resist. But that 
makes it all the more urgent that 
they should be resisted 
The greatest threat we face is of 
the Nanny State. Its agents are the 
Moral Minority, who believe that 
Nanny knows best; they will not 
put us in concentration camps or 
have us shot, but wifi oblige us. if 
they have their way. to conform to 
their idea of our welfare. It is 
therefore of ihe greatest im- 
portance that they shall not have 
their way. Shall we pledge our- 
selves to ensure that they do not? 
If you agree, let us take the pledge 
on Saturday, which is, most 
suitably. St Crispin's Day.

Boston 

Despite the popular European 
view that America's East Coaa 
cities are getting old wed and 
tauv as the “centre of gravity 


moves south and west, this his- 
toric New England capital is 
bursting with life: flourishing busi- 
ness, growing populations in the 
new satellite “urban villages", city 
centre redevelopment and rapid 
gentrification of the rundown 
inner city residential streets. 

What has been happening? The 
community college principal to 
whom 1 put the question want 
back and thought, while I waned 
for a high powered micro-eco- 
nomic answer. In the end he 
shrugged. "It's gotten trendy. Four 
national soap operas arc based m 
Boston. There arc colleges and 
universities all over the place. 
There arc plenty of Victonan 
houses to do up. You can buy brie 
and chabli5 on every street corner. 
It’s what the Yuppies like!" 

Presumably they also like the 
Harvard bookstall cafe - not 
actually in Harvard but on chic 
Newbury Street - a wonderful 
place where you help yoursdr to 
muffins and bagels and recent 
publications and swill them down 
with as much coffee as t you can 
drink to the accompaniment of 
taped Haydn symphonies. It was 
here that I bought a book that 
nearly rained my . visit Only by 
the greatest effon of will, having, 
started it. did I put it down and 
look at Boston rather than read 
about its recent history. 

The book is Common Ground . 
by J. Anthony Lukas. Winner of 
four literary awards, including the 
Pulitzer, it is a long narrative 

account of the desegregation of the 

Boston school system, as seen 
through the eyes of three real 
fomilies. one Yankee, one Irish 
and one black. Though highly 
specific, its scope is wide: the 
history of each family over many 
generations, and the politics of the 
local Democratic Party, the Cath- 
olic Church and the civil rights 
movement, are all part of the 
story. For the student of American 
society, it is a feast — surprisingly 
not yet available in Britain. 

The narrative stops in 1976, on 
a note of gloom. Busting appeared 
to have only deepened racial 
antagonism, inner city crime was 
becoming more and more vicious, 
well [mentioned experiments in 
subsidized housing and the 
promotion of black businesses bad 
foundered. The reputation of the 
school system, not high at the 
start, had sunk even lower. 

Visiting the city for the first 
time ten years later, I had the sense 
of histoiy having moved on. 
Bussing continues, now without 
controversy but also without self- 
congratulation either. The schools 
are all racially mixed, though with 
a minority of whites; 30 per cent 
now compared with 60 per cent in 
1971 Whether or not gemrifi- 
cation will alter this proportion 
remains to be seen; there are 
plenty of private schools. 

But people are talking about 
different things. Raising standards 
and getting youngsters into jobs or 




farther education m foe 
preoccupations. You bear much 
about the “credential oriented 
society” and nowhere is ft more 
important than in areas of high- 
tech growth like Boston. Many big.*

Right, folk, you 
can quote me 


People collect very odd things. I 
know a TV producer who collects 
milk bottles and I once met a man 
at a party who told me he collected 
paper clips. (‘Tve got sixty dif- 
ferent ones," he said. “It doesn’t 
sound a lot. but I never buy them 
- 1 only acquire them from other 
people’s offices.”) Nevertheless, I 
stilt think the oddest collection I 
ever came across was that com- 
piled by Jack, who used to work at 
Gaston's Bookshop, off Hoiborn. 
He collected apostrophes. 

More accurately, he collected 
apostrophes when they were mis- 
used. One of the better items in his 
collection was a sign he had 
spotted in South' London, Joes 
Eat's — no apostrophe after Joe, as 
there should have been, bur one in 
Eats, where there shouldn't. A 
double misuse of the apostrophe, 
or perhaps a migrating apos- 
trophe. it gave him extreme 
pleasure of a perverse kind, be- 
cause deep down his sensitive soul 
was, I am sure, quite offended by 
this cultural ignorance. 

But ihe misuse of foe apos- 
trophe. especially to denote the 
plural, has become so widespread 
now - one secs it primed on 
menus and hand-painted on of- 
ficial signs - that I am beginning 
to suspect we are seeing foe 
emergence of a genuine new usage. 
Not a learned usage, but a folk 
usage. Linguists sometimes talk 
about something called folk 
etymology, whereby they mean a 
change of vocabulary which is due 
to a complete misunderstanding, 
Jerusalem artichoke for example. 
«s so called because people have 
heard foe original label. “Girasoie 
artichoke”, and assumed it must 
mean Jerusalem. People assume 
that the ham in hamburger refers 
to the meat, so we now have 

beefburger and cheeseburger. 

Although wrongly derived, 
these words are now part of the 
language. And it is quite possible 
that wrong punctuation, folk 
punctuation we might call it. can 
also become pan of the language. 
At least, that is the only way I can 
explain something else’! have seen 
happening recently, and that is a 
total but fairly consistent misuse 
of double inverted commas. Con- 
sider these three messages 1 have 
copied down in the last month. 

“ “Excellent” house wine at £5. 10 



a litre. (On the blackboard a 
Gannct’s. an Aberystwyth -res

• “No cheques” accepted wnftotr

TOrty years ago, >t*en it 
became clear that the heroism 
of the Hungarian Revolution 
had been crushed by Soviet 
tynks, a bleakly cynical saying 
made its way around Eastern 
Europe. The Hungarians, it 
A^went, bad behaved like Poles, 

. the Poles had behaved like 
Czechs, and the Czechs had 
behaved like swine. Only in 
lheKremlin itself could such a 
sour witticism have prompted 
a; smile because it described 
the fractured disunity of East- 
em &uope which was a main 
prop of Soviet controL 

Yesterday’s joint statement 
by 132 leading members of the 
movements in four 
Bb European countries — 
Egland, East Germany, 
Chechoslovakia and Hungary 
itsetf— is the first sign that the 
^democratic forces of Eastern 
^Eiprope may finally be 
dTOrcoming their crippling di- 
visions. It is a historic docu- 
n^nl In time it may come to 
rank with the United States 
Declaration of Independence. 
Certainly the Soviet leader- 
ship, aware that its own 
gmealogy can be traced back 
10 small groups of apparently 
powerless intellectuals facing a 
monolithic empire, will see it 
fctbai dramatic light. 

’dPbr ihe joint declaration 
does more than merely mark 
tlte. anniversary of the 1956 
% Revolution. It links that great 
popular struggle with the other 
struggles of East European 


struggles of East European 
peoples against the Soviet 
occupation of their lands — 
with the 1953 East Berlin 


workers’ uprising, with the 
1968 Prague “Spring”, and 
with the rise of Solidarity in 
Poland. Its message is that 
these revolts were not just 
explosions of nationalist senti- 
ment, each one the distinct 
and separate property of a 
particular people, of no great 
significance to its neighbours. 
Instead, they represented what 
the document calls “our joint 
determination to to struggle 
for political demo- 
cracy„.(and) independence..." 

Since 1956, of course, the 
East European puppet regimes 
have periodically attempted to 
buy off such political aspira- 
tions with economic reforms, 
more consumer goods and 
limited loosening of censor- 
ship. Nowhere has this been 
more assiduously tried than in 
Hungary itself where the 
Kadar regime operated the 
quietist principle of “be who is 
not against us is with us." 

Such relaxation can be wel- 
comed on the commoosense 
grounds that it is better to be 
governed by a mild tyranny 
than by a cruel one. But the 
document both claims and 
exemplifies that “goulash 
communism" has not suc- 
ceeded in its principal aim of 
winning popular support for 
the satellite regimes. The spec- 
tre of the Red Army remains 
the indispensable condition of 
Soviet rule. 

Despite superficial appear- 
ances, the Soviet empire is an 
unstable one, disturbed cm 
average by one attempted 
revolution per decade. It has 
been better able to resist these

b is right that the nation 
should r^ard architecturally 
and historically distinguished 
buddings as community assets 
and not just as the disposable 
private property of their 
present owners. It should also 
nerve itself to compensate the 
owners for any loss of income 
or amenity 

... The principle (if not the 
iquahfic&tion) is enshrined in 
the system for the legal control 
of the alteration and demo- 
btionor* listed" buildings. But 
churches, which make up a 
substantial proportion of this 
national heritage, are exempt; 
' and conservationist bodies 
have been clamouring for 
them to be brought within the 
system. 

They succeeded in persuad- 
ing the Department of the 
Environment to investigate 
the issue, to publish a Green 
Paper, and to enter long and 
detailed negotiations with the 
churches. They have not suc- 
ceeded, it is clear from Lord 
, Skekncrsdale's announcement 
T last week, in winning the 
abolition of the principle of 
ecclesiastical exemption. 

The Church of England, 
which is responsible for most 
Of (he buildings in this class, 
has agreed to certain modifica- 
tions of its own internal “fac- 
ulty jurisdiction" processes, so 
that architectural and 


conservationist interests will 
in future always be folly 
involved in the advisory 
stages. All church demolitions 
outside the existing safeguards 
of the 1983 Pastoral Measure 
will be subject to foil listed 
building control; all proposed 
demolitions under the Mea- 
sure will be referred to the 
Secretary of State, with the 
possibility of his calling a 
public inquiry whose recom- 
mendations the church has 
agreed to be bound by. 

In return the Government 
has agreed to guarantee suf- 
ficient income for the Redun- 
dant Churches Fund to take 
care of buildings for which the 
church has no further use and 
which are too important to be 
pulled down. That is fair. 

Because what is envisaged is 
a partnership rather than the 
full imposition of “secular" 
statutory control, it will, as 
Lord Skdmersdale acknowl- 
edges, require considerable 
goodwill on both sides. The 
conservationist interests 
should not let their failure to 
win all they were seeking sour 
that partnership from the out- 
set. simply in the interests of 
proving that it cannot work 
and that they were right. . 

A relatively small propor- 
tion of the churches deemed 
worthy of protection by 
“listing" belong to the Free 


MANOEUVRING® BY M’BOW 


The euphoria among staff and 
diplomats earlier this month at 
Unesco. in the immediate 
wake of the unexpected 
announcement by its 
controversial director-general 
Amadou Mahtar M'Bow that 
he would not ask fora third six- 
year term, is giving place to 
wi d espread conviction that 
M'Bow has by no means 
Abandoned hope Preelection. 

White M'Bow's departure 

next year would not by itself 
solve Unesco's deep-seated 
pro blems , it is a necessary pre- 
condition for makings Stan, as 
the Japanese, the Swiss, the 
Dutch and the West Germans 
m openly. Not feast, it would 

end the “private war" which 
Unescot former legal adviser, 
Karel Vasak. has accused 
M'Bow of waging a&ainst the 


scepticism. Its terms were 
ambiguous. In French dip- 
lomatic parlance, when a poli- 
tician says he is not a 
“demandeui” for a post, it is 
generally interpreted as mean- 
ing that he would be delighted 
to receive an invitation. 

The logical moment for 
M'Bow to have told the exec- 
utive board of his decision 
would have been a week 
earlier, when the procedures 
for inviting applications for 
thejob were discussed. M’Bow 
was silent then. He appears to 
have been put under decisive 
pressure from his home gov- 
ernment in Senegal on the voy 
day of his wholly unantici- 
pated disclaimer.

lomats in Paris, expect him to 
turn his setback to tactical 
advantage, using a year in 
which governments may relax 
their vigilance to continue his

of emerging as the fallback

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Relative values and lure of Einstein NHS stick and 


periodic rebellions because it 
subjects were disunited within 
countries as well as between 
them. Yet this document 
brings together not just 
Hungarians, Poles, East Ger- 
mans' and Czechs, but also 
Catholics and atheists, 
“rightist" nationalists and 
“leftist" workers, officially tol- 
erated “peace" spokesmen and 
underground activists. 

The Polish signatories, for 
instance, include Jacek 
CZaputowicz of the legal 
"Freedom and Peace" move- 
ment, Jan Andrzej Gorny of 
underground Solidarity, 
Marek Edelman, the lak 
surviving commander of the 
Warsaw Ghetto uprising and 
now a cardiologist, Leszek 
Moczulski, leader of the 
underground nationalist 
movement, and Adam 
Michnik, who is usually de- 
scribed as the theoretical 
brains behind Solidarity. 
These names are a list of the 
real political forces in Polish 
society beneath the frozen 
military-communist facade. 
And what is true for Poland 
applies also to other bloc 
nations. 

With this declaration, on the 
anniversaiy of the greatest 
popular uprising against 
Soviet communist rule, the 
real political forces of Eastern 
Europe have begun to work 
together to regain their free- 
dom. It is not, as Churchill 
remarked of another evil em- 
pire, the end. It is not even the 
beginning of the end. But it 
may be the end of the begin- 
ning. 


Churches and the Roman 
Catholic Church, and they too 
enjoy ecclesiastical exemption 
although they have nothing 
like the Church of England’s 
faculty system. 

Listed building control is to 
be extended, with the consent 
of those bodies, to alterations 
which would “materially affect 
the architectural or historic 
interest" of such buildings. 
This recognises that the 
community in general has a 
stake in the outwards appear- 
ance of such buildings. 

There are to be further talks 
concerning arrangements for 
lesser alterations, particularly 
to interiors, but here the 
Government would be wdl 
advised to tread very carefully. 
These churches exist not just 
as monuments to the architec- 
tural skills of the past, but also 
as monuments to the principle 
that the state may not prevent 
citizens worshipping as they 
please. To urge and persuade 
the appropriate church 
authorities that on aesthetic 
grounds an overbearing Meth- 
odist pulpit should not be, 
moved or an over-gothic' 
Catholic altar not scaled down 
would be reasonable; to insist 
on this, on pain of criminal 
penalties, would be to com- 
promise the principle of re- 
ligious toleration and freedom 
of worship. 


From Professor A. P. Miodomik 
Sir. The Astronomer Royal of 
Scotland. Malcolm Longair. has 
made an impassioned plea for an 
improvement in the communica- 
tion of science to the intelligent 
layman (“Bring Einstein to the 
people", October 15) but he has 
wisely admitted that having a 
vision of a more scientifically 
informed populace does not de- 
fine the means by which this can 
be readily achieved. 

The fret that most scientists are 
only interested in discoveries 
which have particular relevance to 
their own speciality is probably 
the greatest stumbling block to 
communicating their excitement 
to the public at large. 

The discoveries made by Ein- 
stein clearly rank amongst the 
main scientific achievements of 
the 20th century and have been 
the seminal influence on vast 
areas of technological advance. 
The reason that people do not 
respond to such apparently im- 
portant universal laws may quite 
simply be that even such all- 
embracing laws have to be placed 
in a greater context. 

To reach fora unifying explana- 
tion of the world of sub-atomic 
particles and the world of galaxies 
is a noble, exciting and worthwhile 
pursuit, but where is the relevance 
of those laws to the world of 
human beings? Clearly they are 
relevant to the increasingly tech- 
nological environment in which 
we find ourselves, but is any 
connection being made with the 
existence or behaviour of human- 
ity at huge? 

The article in question tends to 
indicate that pursuing Einstein’s 
ideas will lead the reader away 
from commonly perceived 
relationships into a world where 
everything is relative, transient 
and totally unrelated to normal 
human activities. Il may well be 
very important to realise that such 
a world exists, but it is all too easy 
to give the impression that the 
commonly perceived world of 
human relationships is thereby 
rendered false and meaningless. 

Until the two different view- 
points can be seen to relate, and 
not to be in conflict with each 
other, there w£D inevitably be 
considerable consumer resistance 
to theories which reduce the status 
of human existence to being a 
statistical quirk in a transient, and 
essentially hostile, universe. Judg- 
ing by his autobiographical mar 
tenal, rinaum himself was very 
insistent that this should not 
happen, but regrettably his own 
views are not propagated with the 
same ardour as his theories. 

Really bringing Einstein to the 
people would be a marvellous 
challenge, but trying to propagate 
his theories divorced from his 
humanity is likely to be counter- 
productive. It is probably more 
important, at this point in time, to 
bring some humanity into the 
theorising of modem scientists. 
Until the connection is remade, 
the public is quite right in rejecting 
the blandishments of theories 
divorced from human exis t ence.

Sir, As midnight heralded the

Sale of vicarages 

From the Reverend Canon E. G. 
and Mrs Longman 
Sir. We must put in a good word 
for the Church Commissioners 
under fire for selling off desirable 
large old parsonages (letters, 
September 27, October 3, 7). The 
retention of this listed early Vic- 
torian rectory has been under 
active discussion for over 20 


years. 

It is twice the acceptable size. 
However, after careful consid- 
eration of its site, the finan c ial 
implications of alternatives, and 
its contribution to the life of the 
Church, a scheme is now being 
implemented whereby it is being 
retained, with a third separated off 
as a glebe flat, bringing in useful 
income for the diocese. 

The large hall and adjacent 
reception room with renaissance 
panelling will be shared with the 
parish, and the private part of the 
bouse is being rearranged more 
conveniently for the incumbent 
and his family. 

Incidentally, a change of plan at 
the last minute, involving no extra 
expense, was accepted within the 
hour of its reception by the 
Church Commissioners. We be- 
lieve these are good reasons to 
show they are more flexible now 
and can respond quickly. 

Yours sincerely.

which related directly to mankind 
and his place in Nature The 
impact of Darwinism, the debates 
concerning the origins of life, the 
age of the Earth and the possible 
heat-death of the Universe (more 
of an issue before the discovery of 
radioactivity) all served a ten- 
dency in man to put himself at the 
centre of scientific issues. 

In physics the advent of 
probability theoiy heralded a new 
view of determinism v$ chance in 
the micro-world and these issues 
became philosophical questions. _ 

The complexity of modem sci- 
ence is such that it would take a 
highly motivated people to leap 
out of the arena of Newtonian 
mechanics, which serves quite 
adequately our everyday' experi- 
ence. and wrestle with concepts 
which, when translated from ab- 
stract mathematics, serve to shat- 
ter our illusions about reality and 
present us with a world more 
amazing than our minds can easily 
comprehend. 

Perhaps, with the help of science 
teachers in schools, historians of 
science and philosophers predis- 
posed towards metaphysics, this 
new enlightenment will come. 
Good luck to Malcolm Longair in 
his crusade.

From Mr Percy Holliday 
Sir, I may be the fool who steps in 
where angels fear to tread, but if all 
of us, scientists included, could 
adopt the remarkable humility of 
Einstein, what a transformation 
there would be! 

He told Rabindranath Tagore 
that though he couldn't prove it 
he believed in a truth that was 
independent of human beings. 
And be wrote that he himself was 
' content to investigate this marvel- 
lous universe and apprehend 
some small part of “the 
intelligence" that it disclosed. He 
was unable to believe that the 
scientist who made a new discov- 
ery was the first ever to have 
thought of it 

If Malcolm Longair wishes to 
bring this aspect of Einstein’s 
teaching to the general knowledge 
of all ofus, nothing but good could 
come of it

From Dr Andrew WUsfti 
Sir, “Bring Einstein to the people" 
by Malcolm Longair, far from 
malting the subject in question 
understandable, will in fact con- 
firm the suspicion of many that 
much of this century’s theoretical 
physics is humbug. None of the 
real technical achievements of our 
age are based on the theory of 
relativity or any similar specula- 
tion. 

These speculations often de- 
pend on an illegitimate corruption 
of the meanings of some essential 
words and attempt to create an 
illusion that h is possible for ns to 
understand the world beyond 
what have always been believed to 
be human limitations. One of the 
few pronouncements of modem 
theoretical physics which are truly 
illuminating is Heisenberg’s prin- 
ciple of uncertainty which, in 
contrast to Einstein’s conceit, 
forces upon us humility. 

Yours sincerely,

Wrong colour 

From Dr Patrick Cosgrove 
Sir. Mr Alan Hamilton (October 
15) refers to Mr Deng Xiao-Ping 
as the eminence grise of the 
People’s Republic of China. The 
usage is. surely, historically in- 
appropriate. 

The description “grey 
eminence” was first used - so far as 
my knowledge goes - of Pere 
Joseph, the great Cardinal 
Richelieu's confidant and sec- 
retary in 17th-ceniufy France. It 
arose from the contrast of colour 
between the cardinal's red robes 
pnd Joseph's handspun grey Capu- 
chin attire. It was meant to suggest 
that Richelieu’s policies were 
made for him by a far less 
flamboyant - and. indeed, retiring 


-figure. 

Bui. surely. Mr Deng is far from 
grey - in the sense ofbeing retiring, 
or anxious to stay behind the 
scenes. In every movement of 
policy in mainland China he has 
been forward, and thrusting. It 
would, therefore - if the compari- 
son has to be used -be much more 
accurate to describe him as the 
"red eminence" of China. That 
description would, also, be more 

aesthetically appropriate. 

Yours sincerely.

Disaster on K2 

From Mr M. J- Ball 
Sir, Dr Charles Clarice’s letter 
(October 2) about the disastrous 
events on K2 concentrates on the 
problem of low oxygen only. In 
my view the appalling number of 
deaths after a forced high camp 
was due to shortage of food and 
fuel the latter being essential to 
produce the large quantities of 
water needed at this altitude. 

It is dear from accounts now 
available that no foe! or food was 
available m the 48 hours before 
the final descent was attempted. 
Of those who attempted the 
descent only two were able to 
reach the bottom of the mountain. 

An Davidson, in The Coldest 
Climb, an account of the first 
winter ascent of Mount McKinley, 
m Alaska, gives a very dear 
account of the necessities in a 
forced high bivouac Although at 
only just over 18.200 feet, the 
simulated altitude in terms of 


carrot approach 

From Mr Ivan Lester 
Sir. Mr J. T. Winkler ("NHS spur 
for the spurious", October 14) 
assumes that the sole motivation 
of NHS genera] managers is 
financial reward. If that were the 
case, that band of talented individ- 
uals would not be working for the 
NHS. For the most part these 
people are talented professionals 
from clinical and other disciplines 
who have devoted much to the 
NHS and its patients. 

The second major flaw in Mr 
Winkler’s argument is the 
assumption that NHS general 
managers are responsible to no- 
body other than themselves. This 
is quite erroneous. General man- 
agers are responsible to a district 
health authority, which amongst 
other things, sets the expected 
standards and closely scrutinizes 
and assesses the work of the 
general managers in carrying out 
the policies of the authority (i.e^ 
not the policies of the general 
managers). 

If anything, one of the great 
problems of health authorities is 
the lack of performance indicators 
against which authority members 
can measure the standards in their 
health authority against standards 
in other authorities. This is sfowly 
being rectified. 

Yours faithfully, 

IVAN LESTER (Vice-chairman, 
Harrogate Health Authority), 
Stream Corner, 

Fuiwith Mill Lane, 

Harrogate, N Yorkshire. 

From the Chief Executive of the 
NHS Management Board 
Sir, Mr Winkler's article does 
scam justice to either the philos- 
ophy or the working arrangements 
of the individual performance 
review and performance related 
pay schemes recently announced 
for the NHS. 

The individual performance re- 
view scheme is based on the 
principles of the right of individ- 
uals to know what is expected of 
them, and to know how their 
performance is perceived. It pro- 
vides a framework for discussing 
the key components of a post, 
including the routine running of 
the service, the tasks which need 
to be tackled, and the constraints 
oh the individual in taking for- 
ward those tasks. 

Performance-related pay is de- 
signed to recognise effective 
performance, as judged through- 
out the whole IPR process: it 
cannot be paid for by reaching a 
handful of targets whilst ignoring 
whole areas of the health service. 
In such a case a manager would 
fail to measure up to the wider 
. objectives set for the post. 

No system of performance re- 
view or performance pay can be 
entirely safe from manipulation, 
or indeed from more venial 
failings. We have, therefore, in- 
cluded a number of safeguards 
against too easy financial rewards. 
In particular there is a system of 
equity assessors who will ensure 
that objectives are sufficiently 
stretching and will oversee the 
performance assessment process. 
With common sense and good 
will, both measures win lead to 
more effective management and 
thus to the overriding objective of 
an unproved service to patients. 

I am confident that the dedica- 
tion and integrity which is so 
notable a feature of those who 
work in the NHS will serve as an 
effective shield against the kind of 
chicanery with which your col- 
umnist seeks to alarm us. 

FmalJy, I should stress, in the 
light of your October 16 report, 
that pay for performance applies 
to a limited group of 800 general 
managers - although, if success- 
ful it may well be spread down- 
ward to the other group of 
managers. As I emphasised, this is 
a pilot scheme and no decision has 
yet been taken on its extension. 
Yours faithfully.

From Colonel Charles Lane 
Sir, The corollary, and possibly 
the answer, to Professor Ronald 
Fletcher's question (October 16 ), 
“Why do they" (the Americans) 
“continue to insist on a 
programme" (SDI) “which would 
be unnecessary?” (after the 
elimination of nudear bombs), is: 
Why do they (the Soviet Union) 
continue to insist on the pro- 
gramme (SDI) being stopped?

On McKinley fuel was available

On a mountain like K2. where

"In the last 15 or 20 years of his 
life, " according to an assessment 
of Tolstoy 's influence in the 
Encyclopedia Britannica, "he was 
probably the most venerated man 
m the world. ” Yet his domestic life 
ended tragically. Two yean after 
this letter appeared, because of a 
deepening estrangement from his 

wife, he secretiyjeft his country 

home, Yasnaya Polyana, where ne 
had been bom in 1828, taking 
with him his youngest daughter, 
Alexandra. Ten days later, on 
Novembers, 1910, he collapsed 
and died in the stationmaster's 
office at Astapooo. 


COUNT TOLSTOY'S 
THANKS 

TO THE EDITOR OF 
THE TIMES 

When, some months before the 
date, I heard of my friends’ 
intention to celebrate my 80th 
birthday, I announced in print that 
I much wished they would do 
nothing of the sort. 

But what I had not at all 
expected happened — namely, that 
from the last days of August to the 
present time I have been, and still 
am, receiving from moat various 
sides such flattering greetings that 
I feel it necessary to express my 
sincere gratitude to aD those 
persons and institutions who have 
addressed me so amicably and 
kind]}'. 

I thank all the Universities, town 
councils. Zemstvo councils, educa- 
tional wtflhliulmwnt g, Societies, 
alliances, groups, dubs, fellow- 
ships, and staffs of newspapers and 
magarines who. have sent me 
addresses and greetings- I also 
thanlr all my friends and acquaint- 
ances. both in . Russia and abroad, 
who remembered me on that day. I 
thank all those whom I do not 
know personally, of very various 
social position, including prisoners 
in gaols and exiles, who have 
greeted me with equal cordiality. I 
thank all the youths, maidens, and 
children who have sent me their 
congratulations. 

I also thank for their good wishes 
those members of the clerical 
calling who have greeted me; and 
the fact that there are very few 
such makes me value their greet- 
ings the more highly. I also thank 
those who, together with their 
congratulations, have sent me 
beautiful presents. 

I heartily thank all who have 
greeted me, especially those (the 
majority) who, quite unexpectedly 
to me and to my great joy, have 
expressed in their addresses full 
agreement, not with me, but with 
those eternal truths which, as best 
I could, I have tried to express in 
my writings- Among these I was 
particularly pleased to find a 
majority of peasants and workmen. 

Excusing myself for my inability 
to reply separatel y to each institu- 
tion and person, I ask all to accept 
ibis announcement as an expres- 
sion of my sincere gratitude to afl 
who during these days have ex- 
pressed their kind feelings towards 
me. for the joy they have given me. 

LEO TOLSTOY 

Count Tolstoy. 

The amiable letter in which 
COUNT TOLSTOY expresses this 
morning, through our columns, his 
thanks to those who from all 
quarters of the world and from 
every section of society have sent 
him gree tin gs nnH gifts on his 
eightieth birthday is a document 
which in more than one aspect is of 
quite exceptional interest. It as- 
sists us for one thing to reeJize with 
unusual vividness how the texture 
of international life tends con- 
stantly to become closer. Inter- 
change of ideas and sympathies has 
its modern develop me nts side by 
side with the more material and 
obtrusive methods of communica- 
tion between one nati on and 
another, and these invisible ex- 
ports and imports, equally with the 
interests involved in less impalpa- 
ble commodities, make for that 
mirtnai qader s t an d ni g among na- 
tions which is perhaps the stron- 
gest of the fences working for the 
world’s peace. — From a narrower 
and more personal point of view 
t h*> celebration is equally striking. 
It is perhaps the strongest testimo- 
ny that has been given in recent 
tamps of the far-reaching fascina- 
tion of character. For it is apprecia- 
tion of his high personal worth, his 
truth, his self-abnegation, his re- 
lentless loyalty to the light as he 
conceives it, rather than percep- 
tion of his literary power or 
sympathy with his social ideal, that 
has won for COUNT TOLSTOY 
the af fe ctiona t e esteem of vast 
masses of people throughout the 
civilized world. . . .It is pretty safe 
to say that it is Tolstoy the man 

rather than Tolstoy the novelist, or 
Tolstoy the apostle, who has 
captur ed the imagination and es- 
teem of so many people in so many 
different lands. . . ~ Nobility of 
purpose, high courage, a blameless 

life — these all can lmderstanrl nnH 
admire and, displayed as COUNT 
TOLSTOY has displayed them in 
the peculiar difficulties in which 
his life has been led, they have 
appealed to *hp rnwg i nariftiw anil 

the hearts of mankind with irre- 
sistible and searching power. . . . 

Captive audience 

From Mr Leslie Dunkling 
Sir. The loud conversation of 
fefiow passengers on the train this 
morning made it quite impossible 
for me to do the crossword. I fell 
instead to wondering whether 
there is a word in English for 
someone who is forced, against his 
will, to be a listener. 

These days I seem frequently to 
be a victim of aural torture, 
whether it be in the form of 
conversation (inevitably boring in 
proportion to its loudness) or 
“music". I am hardly an 
“eavesdropper" on such . occa- 
sions. deriving pleasure from the 
experience. What then am I? 
Yours faithfully.

This week the bishops of the Church 
of England have to decide how to 
intervene in the so-called Tulsa affair, 
concerning which a fierce quarrel has 
broken out between the entire Epis- 
copalian hierarchy in the United 
States and the Bishop of London, Dr 
Graham Leonard. 

The American House of Bishops 
has condemned in the strongest terms 
< his decision to take an Anglican 
I parish in Tulsa, Oklahoma, under his 
own pastoral wing, and they have 
appealed to the English House of 
Bishops to "discipline and correct" 
its third most senior member. 

So the Archbishop of Canterbury, 
Dr Robert Runcie, has put the matter 
on the agenda for the bishops' 
meeting now due. It is as tricky a 
predicament as they have ever faced. 

The official American complaint 
was ringed with resentment that Dr 
Leonard seemed to be acting as if the 
American Revolution had not hap- 
pen, saying he was setting himself up 
as a judge of the “competency" of 
their canonical processes used against 
the Tulsa parish and its priest. Father 
John Pasco. 

There are smouldering historical 
embers ready to be enflamed here, for 
American Anglicans have not forgot- 
ten nor entirely forgiven the Church 
of England's attitude to them 200 
years ago; because the English church 
was hostile, the American episcopal 
succession had to be derived from the 
Scottish Anglican church instead 
And bishops of London once acted as 
! the Church of England's Colonial 
Office in those places overseas with 
no bishop of their own. as shown by 
the only recently extinct title of one of 
the London suffragans, the Bishop of 
Fulham and Gibraltar. 

It was the present Bishop of 
F ulham that Dr Leonard originally 
intended to send to Tulsa this month 





The Bishop of London: Opposing 
the ordination of women. 

to carry out confirmations, and the 
name will not have helped cool 
American tempers. The American 
bishops have reacted as if the Bishop 
of London was intending to start an 
English-derived Anglican church in 
the United States, parallel 'to the 
Scottish-derived one. 

There are numerous small groups 
of disgruntled Anglicans apart from 
Tulsa, the so-called “continuing 
Anglicans”, who have broken with 
the official Episcopalian church over 
the issue of women's ordination, and 
who might not mind if Dr Leonard 
bad on his staffa man who was in ef* 
feet the Bishop of Fulham and 
America. 

This would support their claim to 
be the “reaT Anglican presence in the 
United States, and appear to bring 
them back into communion with the 
Archbishop of Canterbury by another 
route. 

The American House of Bishops is 


also well aware that the Bishop of 
London is the leading opponent of 
the ordination of women; and they 
are resentful already at the Church of 
England's failure to extend recog- 
nition to American women priests. If 
one of their women priests wishes to 
visit England, and to exercise her 
priesthood while there, episcopal 
vision rapidly develops the Nelson 
touch. . . _ _ 

Dr Leonard in turn has warned or 
dire consequences should an Ameri- 
can woman priest be ordained a 
bishop; and said he would have to 
consider whether to refuse to attend 
the 1988 Lambeth Conference if an 
American woman, bishop was 
present. 

Dr Runcie has already tried to talk 
Dr Leonard out of sending the Bishop 
of Fulham to Tulsa, but with the 
opposite result to the one intended: 
Dr Leonard let it be known that he 
would go him seif He has nothing to 
lose even if it leads to a monstrous 
row, for be would achieve a public 
demonstration of the divisions and 
tangles likely, to ensue in England 
should the church here in turn decide 
in due course to ordain women. 

That domestic issue has already 
become bogged down on tire question 
of bishops jurisdiction, and one of 
the more far-fetched proposals for 
meeting it involves two parallel sets 
of bishops, one with women priests 
and one without. It would be a clever 
political tactic both to press that idea 
as hard as possible, as the only 
possible solution, while at the same 
time proving through the Tulsa case 
how very messy the result would be, 
so that even Anglicans who favoured - 
the ordination of women might begin 
to back away. 

Meanwhile the other train is rush- 
ing down the same tracks in the 
opposite direction, to use the Leonard 


metaphor. The Movement for the, 
Ordination, of Women reports an ! 
increase both- In interest and in 
. membership, particularly since July , 
when the general synod turned down ! 
the Women Ordained Abroad Mea- 
sure: and it a now quietly but actively 
encouraging celebrations of Holy 
Communion by visiting women 
priests, some of them American, in j 
England. I 

The Eucharist at Church House, ; 
Westminster, two weeks ago is only 
one of many examples, though most 
have been more, discreet. Defenders 
of these tactics argue that such Holy 
Communion services Are not illegal 
provided they are “private"; and 
even if they were,- the Bishop of 
London's camp has. jao right, to 
complain because this is simpdy tire 
reverse of what he is doing in Tuba.. 

Whatever preconceptions the 
American church may be under, tire 
English House of Bishops has no 
jurisdiction over Dr Leonard in this 
matter, though it could and probably 
will state a critical opinion. 

It then would be open to Dr 
Leonard to press for a deal, by 
offering to comply; with such a 
judgement on condition that the: 
American House of Bishops issued an 
instruction to American women 
priests not to celebrate Holy Commu- 
nion in England. 

What is dearly needed, in the 
interests of restoring good relations 
between the English and American 
branches of the Anglican Commu- 
nion, is mutual agreement to respect, 
each other’s sensitivities. In the 
present- climate to press theological 
convictions to the ultimate, even in 
the name of utter conviction, is the 
shortest route to tearing Anglicanism 
in two . . ■ •

OBITUARY 

MR I. G. H, 
CAMPBELL 

Lawyer of broad ( .. 

sympathies 

Mr Ian Campbell. TD. QC, 

. died on October 16 at the age 
of 77. He was a man of 
conventional training and ap- 
parently convennonal out- 
look, who nevertheless 
showed an uncommon range 
of sympathy and insight while 
serving, from 1963 to 1979, as 
tbe Lord Chancellor’s Legal 
Visitor. 

Ian George. Hallyburton 
Campbell was born on July 
19. 1909. He was educated at 
Charterhouse and Trinity Col- s f 
legs, Cambridge, before being 
called to the Barm 1932. As a 
barrister be was a member of 
both the Inner Temple and 
Lincoln's Inn. - 

During tire war he served in 

the Artists' Rifles and Rifle 
Brigade. By .1945 he was a full 
colonel, having been GS02 at 
‘ 1st Army headquarters and 
Chief Judicial Officer to the 
Allied Commission in Italy. 

After the war emteL and 
before he was demobilised, he 

was tbe chief British legal 
officer in the military govern- 
ment of Austria. - 
Returning to civilian life he 
built up a nourishing practice , 
as a junior at the. Chancery 
Bar. But after taking silk in 
1957 he found be was not 
doing so well, and this reiative 
iadc of success may: have 
influenced bis decision to 
accept the post of - Lord 
Chancellor’s Legal Visitor in 
1963. 

His new role waste keep an 
eye on the “patients" . for 
whom the Court of Protection 
is responsible, and, since at 
any one time about 3,000 out 
of a total of 20,000 or so 
needed to be visited, the task 
that be shared with three 
Medical Visitors was very 
demanding. During an . aver- - 
age year he would personally 
visit five to six hundred 
people. ■ 

. But- tt was not simply, or 
even primarily, the numbers 
involved that made the work 
so difficult- By its very nature 
it required him to deal with 
human situations that could 
be extremely awkward, baf- 
fling, alar m in g , painful or 
pathetic. Ttrafl of them he 
brought qualities of under- 
standing that far transcended 
anything that could reason- 
ably have been expected of 
him. 

His interest in tbejtrobtems 
be faced was by no means 
confined to their legal aspects, 
and his reports to tbe Court 
wereread^ with special appreci- 
ation. His retirement in 1979^ 
was much lamented. ' 

.. Though not foe easiest man 
to get to - know; he was 
essentially sociable, He Eked 
traditional company, and en- 
joyed playing bridge at 

Rnviln's. - • 

He maiiied, in 1949, Betty 
Yolande Bruno (nee 
Madeank who survives him 
with a son and a daughter. 

• MRS JEANNE 
Mackenzie 

\ Mrs Jeanne^ MacKenzie, 

FRSU who dial on October 
16 at tbe age of 64, was best- 
known for the^ biographies of 
Charles Dickens. H. G- Wells 
and the First Fabians that she 
wrote in collaboration with . j 
her husband^ Norman Mac- 
: Kenzie; and as co-editor with 
.him of tbe recent four-volume 
edition of the Diary of Be- 
atrice Webb. But she also won 
acclaim for books that she 
wrote on her own. 

Daisy Jeanne Sampson was 
born at St Helen's, Lancs, on 
Janaary 30, 1922. She was 
educated at Cowley Grammar 
School' for Girls and the 

- London School of Economics. 

Before she turned to writing 
she was (briefly) -a civil ser- 
vant, a publisher’s reader, and 
a marriage counsellor. 

The books produced by her 
. independently include a study 
of Australia, -where she spent 
two years {Australian Para- ,-u’ ■ 
dox, 1962); an anthology of - r . 
literary anecdotes on eyefina ?! ’ 
(1981); and The CJuldrmof V - 
the Souls, which appeared this 
summer; an evocation of the 
■“lost generation" of BaUiol 
men who were killed in the 
1914-18 war. 

Her work as a biographer 
.was recognized by . the 
Heinemann Prize of the Royal 
Society of Literature,, and by 
her election as a Fellow of the 
Society.

charm, ready humour, and

Science report 

Seeking links between 
the mind and blisters 


By Peter Brock 


The enthusiasm Tor running 

- marathons continues and more 
. than 40.000 applications have 
. been received for next year’s 

London event 

An attempt to discover what 

• drives people to subject ihem- 
.'- selves to such a gruelling experi- 

■ ence has become almost an 

• obsession m itself for Mr Peter 
t Gough, a psychologist at Aber- 

■ deen University, who is doing 
research into the question of 
whether exercise is good for you. 

Previous studies of mara- 
thons have concentrated on 
-’biological measurements such 

- as cholesterol levels, body tem- 
peratures and dehydration. Mr 

. Gough seeks to find links 
between mind and blisters. 

One of his studies involved 
the Aberdeen marathon which 
'attracted 1,200 entries to pro- 
duce 600 runners, the remainder 
falling out through injury or loss 
of interest. 

“The Aberdeen run was 
particularly interesting because 
unlike a lor of others it was not a 

- mainly middle-class event. 
About a third of the runners 
were blue collar workers”, he 
said. Among them was a small 
group of unemployed people. 

Half of the runners rated tbe 
activity as being among the 
most important things in their 

• lives, while 90 percent said they 
would take part in another 
marathon within the next 12 
months. The questionnaire they 
answered for Mr Gough was 
delivered some weeks after the 
run. 

The research is a joint effort 
•; fry the university's departments 
of psychology and environ- 
mental and occupational medi- 
cine. It is gram aided by the 

- Health Promotion Research 
Trust 

'‘Some participants see the 
, mystique of the marathon as 
r. being greatly exaggerated and it 
is the practical aspects of the 
race that hold a special attrac- 
tion for them. For a start, they 


sleep much better”, Mr Gough 
said. 

“The media, surprisingly 
when you consider the amount 
of television coverage, appears 
to have little influence in sitting 
them into training. The chal- 
lenge of the particular distance 
generates strong motivation 
while the spin-off in fitness and 
health, weight and physical 
appearance maintains that 
motivation”. 

A lai 2e number of the runners 
differentiated between enjoy- 
ment of the race (which was low) 
and satisfaction (which was 
high), reporting that apart from 
the sense of well-being, the 
marathon provided consid- 
erable insight into personal 
capabilities, not merely for run- 
ning but for coping with every- 
day life. 

Single-parent families and the 
unemployed said they trained 
for the event with low levels of 
self-confidence which under- 
went considerable uplift when 
the finishing line was crossed. 

Domestic life suffered for 12 
per cent of the runners because 
the demands of training severely 
curtailed normal social contact. 
However, marathon mania im- 
proved family life for 13 per 
cent, while the rest experienced 
no change. 

Only those with supportive 
partners felt free enough to 
train. But they, tike many other 
participants of all social classes. 

felt able to lay one of the ghosts 

that linger from schooldays: the 
dismissive attitudes of physical 
education teachers during or- 
ganized games in which they 
bad been forced io lake part. 

One of many said that it took 
him years to discover that 
running was fun. “When you are 
training and when you are 
competing against yourself dur- 
ing. the marathon, there is no 
one to belittle you", he told Mr 
Gough.

FitzGerald in 

appeal for 
common front 
against IRA 

By Richard Ford 

Dr Garret FitzGerald is to second term for a Fine Gael- 


Lager fuels bid for record pumpkins 


urge all democratic parties in 
the Irish Republic to repudiate 
the political wing of the 
Provisional IRA in an attempt 
to win parliamentary seats. 

His demand for a common 
stand against Provisional Sinn 
Fein was greeted with loud 
applause at a Fine Gael annual 
conference, effectively the un- 
declared opening of the next 
general election campaign. 

The election is not due until 
November 1987. but the un- 
certain political arithmetic 
and a worsening economic 
situation may force a snap poll 
this winter or force the gov- 
ernment to go to the county 
early in the new year when n 
must introduce a tough 
budget. 

Dr FitzGerald's address on 
Saturday concentrated on 
domestic issues, with the 
employment problem being 
seen as the most serious issue 
facing a country where half the 
population are under 25. But 
an opinion poll published 
yesterday showed the diffi- 
culty Dr FitzGerald faces in 
his efforts to secure an historic 


led government. 

The poll gave Fianna Fail 
53 per cent of the vote. Fine 
Gael 27 percent. Labour 6 per 
cent. Progressive Democrats 9 
per cent, and 3 per cent to the 
Workers Party. Even worse, 
the party's biggest asset. Dr 
FitzGerald, has suffered an 8 
per cent loss of popularity, 
giving Mr Charles Haughey a 
12 per cent lead as the man 
most people would prefer as 
the next Prime Minister. 

Dr FitzGerald claimed that 
supergrass trials in Northern 
Ireland were being phased out 
and said their use had been 
one of the issues the Irish 
Government bad been raising 
most forcibly since the Anglo- 
Irish Agreement was signed 
almost a year ago. “We are 
satisfied that there has been a 
significant shift, possibly a 
conclusive shift in altiuided 
towards that method oftriaL” 

A “loyalist* paramilitary 
feud is suspected of being 
behind the death of Mr Wil- 
liam Dickson, aged 39. a 
father of four shot dead in the 
toilet of a public house in 
south Belfast on Saturday 
night 


MPs given damages in 
‘Panorama’ libel case 


Continued from page I 
MPs yesterday refused to 
comment on any likely agree- 
ment it is understood that a 
governors* meeting on Thurs- 
day, chaired by acting chair- 
man of the BBC. Lord (Joel) 
Barnett decided to order a 
settlement because of factual 
inaccuracies in the pro- 
gramme, based largely on a 
confidential report prepared 
by the Young Conservatives. 

Yesterday, Mr Richard 
Fuller, YC chairman and a 
member of the group which 
endorsed the infiltration re- 
port by 39 votes to one, 
pledged financial backing to 
the man behind the revela- 
tions. Mr Philip Pedley, who 
still faces legal action by MPs. 

But Mr Moaie. who won an 
apology', legal costs and BBC 
donations to constituency 
charities, yesterday demanded 
the resignation of producers 
and journalists involved in the 
programme. 

“I am not at all surprised

that the BBC has decided to

Mr Proctor felt that any 
agreement announced in court 
today would help dear the 
reputations of all five Conser- 
vative MPs — Mr Warren 
Hawksley (Wrekin) was the 
fifth — who were named 
Senior journalists at the 
BBC, however, were furious 
over reports of a settlement, 
particularly at a time when Mr 
Norman Tebbit, Tory party 
chairman, has announced that 
Conservative Central Office 
would be monitoring political 
coverage by the Corporation 
One journalist said: “It will 
look like a climbdown. Fac- 
tual inaccuracies in a pro- 
gramme are one thing; the 
perception that we are pre- 
pared to knuckle under to 
political pressure is something 
else.”

Washington shock at 
Kremlin expulsions 




- ■■ -*y/ '><#*•- • * 

■s<, • :-*-*<■’ k : *; ' . 




Coa tinned from page 1 
correspondents here that in 
the wake of the Reykjavik 
- summit and attempts to sal- 
vage something from it, the 
issue had been resolved with- 
out a great loss of face on 
either side. - 

Until yesterdaysenior of- 
ficials on both sides appeared 
to be putting a more optimis- 
tic gloss on the proceedings in 
Iceland. 

There was immediate 
speculation that it could dam- 
age efforts to read) new arms 
control agreements in Ge- 
neva. 

Western diplomats claimed 
last night that the Ksrmlin's 
move was intended by Mr 
Gorbachov to demosatntte to 
Kremlin hawks that his recent 


offer to the US in Iceland, of 
sweeping arms cuts, including 
a 50 per cent reduction in 
long-range strategic weapons, 
did not mean that he had 
“gone soft”. . _ 

One senior diplomatic 
source told The Times: “The 
ill-will that this incident has 
aroused will now make it even 
more difficult to return rela- 
tions between Moscow and 
Washington to an even keeL” 
The expulsions and a threat 
by Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, that the 
American government would 
react, has caused consterna- 
tion among the American 
diplomatic, business and 
journalistic community res- ■. 
idem in Moscow and 1 
Leningrad. 


State visit 
to China 
a success 
say aides 

Continued from page 1 
interpreter, the Duke was 
speaking loudly to another 
member of the welcoming 
party. 

The Queen was five min- 
utes late for her official 
welcoming ceremony Ip Tie- 
nan men Square in Peking; 
premier Zhao Ziyang was 
precisely five minutes late 
when he arrived to bid the 
Queen farewell from her Pe- 
king guest bouse. 

The Queen, despite being 
the embodiment of a feudal 
ruling class that is anathema 
in China, was treated with 
exceptional honour by her 
hosts. 

She met China’s four top 
leaders, one more than Presi- 
dent Reagan met . during his 
visit in 1984- It is seen as a 
measure of Chinese satisfac- 
tion at the Hong Kong agree- 
ment, and of their desire to 
trade with Britain, provided 
British firms can be competit- 
ive. 

The Queen's party, on the 
other hand, has been particu- 
larly impressed by the ef- 
ficiency of the Chinese in 
organizing the visit, despite 
the occasionally over-zealous 
attentions of security men 
towards members of her staff, 
and by the crowds, especially 
in Shanghai, who -turned out 
to see her. The Chinese are 
naturally curious and love 
joining a throng, - but the 
estimated 2 million who 
packed her route in Shanghai 
surprised both the British and 
the Chinese. 

One thing that still puzzles 
the ordinary Chinese is why 
the Queen often, appears to 
look so glum in public. 

Her reputation was rescued 
on Saturday, on the last day of 
her tour, when she visited a 
kindergarten m Canton and 
looked quite delighted to be 
mobbed by small children. 
The Duke, meanwhile, was oh 
his best behaviour touring a 
country village, where the 
head man boasted a Japanese 
colour televison and a stereo 
system in b» otherwise spar- 
tan peasant home. 

One of the most spectacular 
overseas tours of the Queen’s 
reign is still being regarded as 
a great success if only because 
it took place at afl. 

• No apology: There was no 
question of an apology to 
China for remarks made re- 
cently by the. Duke of Edin- 
burgh, Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, said here 
yesterday adding, that the 
Queen's visit was “not 
tarnished” by the Duke's com- 
ments <David Bonavia 
writes). ...

Nature notes 

More winter bird visitors are 
arriving. The first redwings have 
been reported in many parts of 
the country. These are small 
thrushes from northern Europe, 
with a conspicuous white stripe 
above the eye and red flanks. 
Ten million or more will prob- 
ably winter here. 

Blackbirds and skylarks can 
be see coming in all’ along the 
east coast. 

Teal are back on quiet pools, 
the drakes with dappCT chestnut 
heads and green eye patches. 

In last week's sunshine some 
starlings started nesting, though 
the nests will not be completed. 
Woodpigeons were also repeat- 
ing their spring displays, soaring 
up and gliding down. Many 
wood pigeons are foraging now 
among fallen leaves: when they 
fly up. their wings create such a 
draught that a cloud of leaves 
rises into the air all round them. 

The autumn trees have not 
presented spectacular colours 
this year, and the wind is rapidly 
driving more leaves down. 
Some limes and sycamores are 
quite bare, 

Flowers still to be found in 
sheltered spots include the white 
scentless mayweed at the edge of 
fields, and purple mallow- by 
hedges. 

In wet places, a few pink 
flowers linger on the bright red 
stems of Himalayan balsam.

Bill faces

Two controversial investor 

S Dtection issues will be de- 
led in Parliament today 
when the Financial Services 
Gill completes the report stage 
in the House of Lords. 

The Government’s 
ammendment to the Bill 
which imposes an industry- 
wide compensation scheme 
on the investment sector will 
meet some opposition.. 

Lord Ezra, the Alliance 
peer, has tabled an amend- 
ment which aims to give the

more say in deciding to 
participate in an industry 
scheme. 


Big Bang anger 
over faults 
on rehearsal day 




By Michael Clark and Richard Thomson 


A rift has developed be- 
tween the Stock Exchange and 
member firms about the ef- 
ficiency of its new screen 
quoted prices system SHAQ 
(Stock Exchange Automated 
Quotations) after the full dress 
rehersai on Saturday for Big 
Bang on October 27. 

Mr Patrick Mitford-Slade, a 
stockbroker with Gazenove 
and a leading member of the 
Stock Exchange Council, said 
vesterdayhe was pleased with 
the operation. “It’s been a 
very' successful day’s trading 
and the system has performed 
exactly as expected.” 

But a heated post-mortem 
examination between Stock 
Exchange officials and mem- 
ber firms on . Saturday pro- 
duced a long list of complaints 
and faults found in the system. 

“There appears to be a 
fundamental problem in the 
system.” said one harassed 
marketmaker on Saturday. 
“On the evidence, I would 
expect the Stock Exchange 
must be disappointed with its 
own performance and that of 
some of the marketmakers. A 
lot of people have been found 
wanting.” 

At the same time the gilts 
market rehearsal, the second 
in a month, went compar- 
atively smoothly despite the

Some dealers admitted that 
they had been deliberately 
misusing the system. When 
they could not cope they 
switched their prices from 
yellow to red on the screens — 
meaning that they were not 
open for dealing — although 
they insisted that they would 
still quote to any 
marketmaker who contacted 
them by telephone. 

That is illegal because 
marketmakers are obliged to 
quote real prices on their

the end of the session, the 
Exchange claimed. 

The post-mortem was 
dominated by complaints that 
many marketmakers had not 
been answering their tele- 
phones when called by other 
dealers. “People were refusing 
to answer.” said a market 
participant 

The time delay in posting 
prices was given as the main 
reason because dealers knew

price for a stock on his screen 
could lead to a marketmaker 
being banned from trading in 
that stock. 

There were complaints also 
about the length of lime it 
took to execute a transaction. 

One dealer at Phillips & 
Drew said it had taken him 
one hour and a half to 
complete just 13 trades. That 
compared with about haif-an- 
hour under the old system.

this week. 


Opec ready 
to extend 
quota deal 

By David Young 
Energy Correspondent 

The agreement on oil out- 
put levels due to expire on 
October 3 1 , is now likely to be 
extended until the end of the 
year with a radical new for- 
mula introduced from Janu- 
ary [. 

The Organisation of Petro- 
i leum Exporting Countries has 
spent the past two weeks 
working on the new system j 
under which Kuwait and ' 
Saudi Arabia will receive a , 
larger share of the market 
because they bore the brunt of 
production cuts over the past 
three years. 

Sheik Yamani. the Saudi 
Minister, who on Friday said 
he would oppose any exten- 
sion of the present agreement, 
yesterday said his country's 
position had changed because 
of firm committments by the 
other nations. 

He expected the oil min- 
isters. who began their meet- 
ing again last night, to reach a 
final agreement on the new 
quotas when the meeting is 
resumed this morning. 

The oil price rose from $10 
a barrel to more than $15 
when the present agreement 
was announced two months 
ago. and traders expect prices 
to start firming today although 
they are sceptical that they will 
go as high as Opec’s target 
price of$17 to $19 a barrel.

Big what? The effects of delays and faults show among these dealers on the trading floor of 
a London broker doting the rehearsal (Photographer: Frank Her rmann ) 


Britain's exhibitions in- 
dustry, whose turnover grew 
by 16 per cent last year, is 
likely to see further 
rises on this pattern as a new 
dutch of exhibition h»lk start 
opening their doors. 

This forecast came yes- 
terday from Mr Loms Bizat, 
general manager of Alexandra 
Palace and chairman of the 
British Exhibition and Venues 
Association, as he inspected 
the almost completed trans- 
la cent roof of the great hail of 
the 113-year-old palace which 
was devastated by fire in 1980. 

A swiftly-erected pavilion 
has kept the Alexandra Palace 
and Park Trust in the ex- 
hibition business while the 
gutted Victorian “palace of the 
people” is being rebuilt bat 
dais work b on bodget and on 
time for the restored building 
to be hosting exhibitions from 
January 1988. 

iMriU add 100,000 square 
feet of exhibition space to the 
capital’s growing total which 
only this weekend was boosted 
by 40,000 square feet with the 
opening of the Business De- 
sign Centre at Islington which, 
nn ns ually, also has 120,000 
square feet of space for perma- 
nent showrooms and offices. 

Next January a £5 milKon 
exhibition hall of about 50,000 
square feet b doe to open at 
the Wembley complex and by 
1990, at a cost of £35 million, e 
an additional exhibition hall of I 


180,000 square feet b planned 
to be opened by Earis Court 
and Olympia, the exhibitions 
and conferences arm of the P 
&O group. 

Mr Bizat said: “The growth 
trend in the exhibitions bm- 
ness is encouraging.” His 
optimism is underpinned by 
the latest analyses of the 
Incorporated Society of Brit- 
ish Advertisers which show 
spending last year was £192 
million compared with £191 
millio n in 1984 bat ISBA says 
a more realistic comparison b 
with 1983 which throws up a 
growth of 25 percent. 

The full impact of two Mg 
hall openings, Glasgow's Scot- 
tish Exhibition Centre and G- 
Mex in the refurbished 
Manchester Central Station, 
will not be seen until tins year, 
said ISBA. 

Further immediate develop- 
ment in London could bring an 
excess of exhibition capacity, 
according to Mr Bizat But 
given the growth trends the 
capital coaid possibly need 
more space by the middle of 
the next decade, he added. 

Under consideration in 
Docklands b a scheme for 
200,090 square feet of ex- 
hibition space pot forward as 


AE, the engineering compo- 
nents group, will make a last- 
ditch attempt today to 
overturn a ruling by the 
Takeover Panel which has 
given Turner & NewaU. the 
asbestos group, the go-ahead 
to launch a new takeover bid. 

If it fails, Turner & NewaU 
will swiftly mount a new offer. 
Last' night. Sir Francis Tombs, 
the company’s chairman, said: 
“We obviously would have to 
read the terms of the final 
judgment of the Panel and 
then look at market con- 
ditions before making a de- 
cision. But it is fair to say that 
the logic remains un- 
challenged — AE would be 
better off with us.” 

The Takeover Panel has not 
formally announced the re-

to have censured AE*s finan-

firm Gazenove, and the mer-

Hill Samuel has apparently 
argued that the Midland Bank

AE*s view all along has been 
that it was unaware of these

the authorities have made

Last night, Sir Francis 
Tombs, while declining to

have come up with an in-

The plan, from the central

their creditor banks to cut |

Dixons pays £4m for 
SupaSnapS film chain 

By Our City Staff 

Dixons, the electrical group, into a related and com- 


Virgin Group to be floated 
with £250 million price tag 


is taking over the chain of 344 
SupaSnapS high street film 
processing shops. The chair- 
man. Mr Stanley Kalms. 
claimed the deal would give it 
another important retailing 
leg. 

Dixons is paying £4 million 
for the business which is a 
subsidiary of the large Ameri- 
can conglomerate 3M. Last 
year SupaSnapS broke even 
on a turnover of £42 million. 

As well as the chain of 
shops, the company also has 
three film processing lab- 
oratories in Glasgow. North- 
ampton and Reading. The 
plants will provide much 
needed additional production 
facilities for Dixons’ own 
colour laboratories. Last year, 
its film processing division 
raised profits by 60 percent to 
£2 million. 

Mr Kalms said: "The ac- 
quisition is an important step 


piemen tary area and is a 
perfect fit for us.” 

As well as offering speedy 
service for processing films, it 
is likely that the SupaSnapS 
shops will begin offering addi- 
tional services such as photo 
reproduction on posters, 
greeting cards, table mats and 
crockery. 

Dixons intends to develop 
SupaSnapS as a new retailing 
arm within ihe group, which 
at present takes includes Cur- 
rys and the out-of-town Power 
City stores. 

Dixons failed in a £1.8 
billion bid for Woolwonb ibis 
year in an attempt to secure 
more selling space in the high 
street. Despite the latest deal, 
it is still in an acquisitive 
mood and there is still 
speculation that it might re- 
new its attack on Woo I worth 
next year.

millionaire entrepenenr, is to Draper holding the balanc e 
bring his international “Most of the money raised 
entertainments company, the * will go into the Virgin Grasp,” 


Virgin Group, to the stock 
market next month with a 
price tag of about £250 million. 

Ninety per cent of the Virgin 
empire will be included in the 
sale but the Virgin Atlantic 
airline and Virgin Holidays 
will not be included. 

Morgan Grenfell, the mer- 
chant hank, and Rowe & 
Pitman, the stockbrokers, are 
advising on the flotation, 
which will be on the main 
market- However, the method 
which will be nsed has not yet 
■been, chosen. 

Mr Branson said yesterday 
that he and bis partner. Mr 
Simon Draper, will sell 25 per 
cent of the Virgin Group to the 
public. He now owns 85 per 


1 Mr Branson said. “We will be 
investing rather a lot of money 
in America over the next two to 
three years. 

“Most of Virgin's growth 
has been natural. We have 
rarely failed as a company 
because when we actually set 
up a company it already has 
business there. All 18 of our 

foreign companies are already 
trading profitably”. 

_ Mr Branson said that Vir- 
gin should shortly announce 
the signing of one of the top 
fire American pop groups. 
Moreover, last week Virgin 
took a 17.5 per cent stake in 
(TV ScperchanneL which 
makes it the second largest 
investor in the European 


entertainments channel . 

Virgin aims to capitalize on 
the broad range of entertain- 
ment services it can offer on an 
international leveL 

It can sign up artists, pub- 
lish their music and distribute 
it through its record shops, as 
well as having video, tele- 
vision. film, book publishing 
and merchandising arms. 

"Whatever we are doing in 
England, we can do in tbe rest 
of the world. We are the only 
entertainments group in 
Europe involved in tile number 
of areas we cover. Most of the 
others are single product com- 
panies. We offer groups a 
completely worldwide 
service," he said. 

Mr Branson added that he 
would spend "one to two days | 
a month, if that,” On tbe airline j 
business after the flotation.

ANALYSIS 



Can auditors see the problem 
before the Government acts? 


Start-up 
aid call 
by Prince 

By Teresa Poole 




By CarolFergnson 

The age-old question am 
custodier ipsas custom , 
crudely rendered into “who 
will shave the barber?”, has a 
new translation: who wfli 
audit the auditors? 

It may seem odd, at a time 
of general deregulation, that 
the Government appears to 
be looking for ways of 
increasing the amount of 
regulation on auditors. Yet 
the Department ofTrade and 
Industry, headed by Mr Paul 
Channoo, and the Office, of 
Fair Trading, whose director- 
general is Sir Gordon Borne, 
have both brought out docu- 
ments in the last two months 
which could have profound 
effects on bow accountants 
are regulated and on the 
services they can offer. 

There are no statutory 
reasons for changing the 
present arrangements apart 
bom the comparatively mi- 
nor changes required by the 
Eighth Directive. And the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry’s consultative docu- 
ment on the regulation of 
auditors is precisely that It 
i merely suggests areas where 
change may be appropriate, 
along with some possible 
solutions. 

Nevertheless, the pro- 
fession has not been seduced 
by the somewhat bland tone 
of the consultative document 
and has rightly decided to 
treat the suggestions as if they 
do. indeed, have a serious 
chance of turning into reality. 
The closing date for com- 
ments is the end of January 
but individual member firms 
are already coming up with 
their initial responses. 

As things stand, the audit 
function is governed by stat- 
ute and professional guid- 
ance. The chartered 
accountancy bodies are the 
very embodiment of the prin- 
ciple of self-regulation. They 
deride what training is 
needed by auditors, provide 
the educational facilities, set 
the examinations, and con- 
trol admissi on to member- 
ship. Their right to do this 
depends on their continued 
recognition by the Secretary 
of State. 

At present, auditing is the 
only statutorily regulated 
activity ofa range of financial 
services offered by acconn- 



Sir Gordon Borne, left, and Mr Paul Channon: their bland siren calls have been ignored 

An audit on accountancy 


The requirements of the 
eighth European Community 
company law directive are 
such that it will not be 
possible to leave the accoun- 
tancy bodies in precisely their 
present position. 

The required changes, how- 
ever, are comparatively mi- 
nor, and they are anfikely of 
themselves to upset British 
practice, which already meets 
or exceeds the European 
standards. 

It is suggested that the 
Secretary of State's present 
responsibilities for the 
authorization and supervision 
of individually-approved 
auditors could be devolved to 

lams. It will soon be joined 
by insolvency work and 
investment advice. The con- 
sultative document appears 
not to favour any greater 
extension of the regulatory 
framework to other services 
such as tax advice and 
management consultancy 
services. 

Being appointed auditor 
confers duties and privileges. 
In reporting on the steward- 
ship of the company, he has a 
duty to be independent He is 
also in a strong position to 
win contracts for additional 
financial services by virtue of 
the feet that be will already 
know the company wefl. 

Most contracts for manage- 
ment consultancy and s imilar 
work are put out to compet- 


a body based on the 
profession. 

But the Department of 
Trade is using the im- 
plementation of the directive 
as an opportunity to review — 
and if necessary reform — the 
Companies Act provisions on 
auditors' qualifications and 

independence. 

Tbe Act now restricts the 
right to audit company ac- 
counts to individuals who are 
either directly authorized hr 
the Secretary of State or who 
are members of a recognized 
body, the three institutes of 
chartered awwmhmi* (in 
England aod Wales, Scotland 
and Ireland) and the Char- 

itive tender. Others, such as 
tax advice, tend not to be. 
Arguably, the auditor has a 
competitive advantage in 
obtaining additional finan- 
cial services work and this 
may make it difficult for 
those who want to expand 
their services in the newly 
deregulated financial markets 
to break in. Nevertheless, a 
big proportion of consultancy 
work is awarded to specialist 
firms who are not the 
auditors. 

The provision of addi- 
tional services is seen by 
some as being a possible 
source of conflicting in- 
terests, compromising the 
auditor's independence. _ He 
may somehow be pressurized 
into something he may not

One is to prohibit the auditor

of network modernisation. 

Principal use for these

handled and processed far 
more cost-effectively than by 
ordinary PABX exchanges. 

Plessey installed the first 
phase of the network in 1985 - 
for the Board’s head office and 
some of its local offices. The 
latest phase is expected to be

Mr Bryan Bfeckbora, na-

Ddoine Haskins and Sem, 
expressed his concern: “To 
justifc banning the supply of 
different services to the same 
diem, sorely it should be

harmful to the interests of 
dients and investors. We do 
not think ibis has ever been

The alternative suggestion, 
to limit all audit appoint- 
ments to a certain number of

Blackburn's view, increase 
audit fees. 

Coopers & Lybrand, in its . 
initial response, has decided 
not to answer foe specific 
questions raised in the docu-

broaden the terms of the 
debate.

forecast today by The stock-

slower domestic demand 
should be enough to start a

Unemployment ‘stems 
from poor demand 9 

By David Smith, EcouonriaCorrespowdeid 


High unemployment in 
Britain is mainly the result of 
insufficient growth in de- 
mand. according to an article 
in Economic Policy, foe 
monthly journal, publ is hed 
today. 

According to Mr Chris- 
topher Pmarides of the 
London School of Economics, 
two-thirds of foe rise in the 
jobless between 1979 and 
1983 was because of inad- 
equate demand and only ©no- 
thin! due to supply foams, 
such as benefits for those out 
of work and union power. 


Reducing uaempfoymera 
from current levels, he says, 
requires either additional de- 
mand or s pec ific measures to 
encourage emp loyers to take 
on more people, including job 
subsidies. . 

In another ankle. M Jac- 
ques Dreze of foe University 
of Louvain, Belgium, says that 
work-sharing has not signifi- 
cantly cut unemployment in 
Europe. 

Such attempts, he asserts, 
have generally only had a 
modest effect on the numbers 
in work.

US NOTEBOOK 


Emerging 
snake 
hypnotizes 
the US 


From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

.Mr James Baker, the US 
Secretary of the Treasury, has 
lost out to the Japanese, the 
Germans and the Swiss, who 
have persistently complained 
about the American policy, 
introduced by Mr Beryl 
Sprinkel in 1981, when he first 
entered the* Treasury, of a 
“free floating” dollar. 

We have now entered into a 
world of “narrow banded" 
exchange rates. Since early 
July, in the case of the yen and 
the Swiss franc, and since 
early August, in the case of the 
mark, these major currencies 
have been held in a “narrow 
band" of fluctuation with the 
dollar. 

New world 

The “narrow bands" for the 
major currencies appear to be: 

• Mark 49-51 US cents; 

• Swiss franc 60-62 cents; 

• Yen 64-66 cents 

On Thursday, the mark 
opened at 50.82 but by the 
dose had been pulled back to 
50.73 (December contract). 
The Swiss opened at 62.20 but 
by the dose was back down to 
61.96. The yen opened at 
65.03 but by the close was 
down to 64.92. 

Of the three central banks — 
who are presumably hand m 
glove with the Fed — the 
Japanese are controlling their 
currency most closely. This is 
because of the much greater 
leverage available to the Japa- 
nese authorities (in the Bank 
of Japan and in the Ministry 
of Finance) in controlling 
many economic aggregates at 
once through the “dub" at- 
mosphere in which major 
policy issues in Japan are 
decided and administered 

A new world of fixed ex- 
change rates is emerging. 
Many other currencies are tied 
to the dollar and hence are tied 
into the emerging “snake". 

No shrinking 

The loser in this will be the 
US, which is last losing all 
policy flexibility. With the 
exchange rate fixed with the 
Fed impotent (following the 
failure if the “gang of four's" 
expansionary money policy 
culminating in the four dis- 
count rate cuts this year) and 
with fiscal policy in anarchy, 
how is the American economy 
going to shift off dead centre? 

Some argue that the degree 
of dollar devaluation so far 
attained against the leading 
currencies will do the trick. 

But in the first quarter 1 986, 
out of a total currency account 
deficit (annual rate) of $122.7 
billion, $51.3 billion was with 
Japan, $26.3 billion with 
Western Europe and $45.1 
billion was with the other 
regions. There is no indication 
yet that the dollar amount of 
the bilateral deficit with Japan 
is contracting. 

Hence, it will be a long time 
until the broad-based devalua- 
tion of the dollar is sufficient 
to reduce the trade deficit by 
an amount sufficient to make 
a dent in its present negative 
impact on domestic American 
economic growth. 

Meanwhile, the effect of 
“narrow banding" is to 
encourage foreigners to con- 
tinue to expand their invest- 
ments in the US, something 
that has the effect of keeping 
the dollar up — and keeping 
the trade deficit up. 

Mr Baker appears to have ; 
lost an important battle, if not j 
the war. 


Two-month delay in implementing new agreement 


Arab politics slows down 
Onec’s auota calculations 




By David Young 

Energy Correspondent 

After more than two weeks of 
intensive and intense dis- 
cussions, the Organization of 
Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries appears to have given 
itself another two months to 
calculate a series of percent- 
ages, which seemingly could 
be done in seconds on a pocket 
calculator. 

The fact that it is on the 
result of these calculations 
that the price of oil will 
depend during next year 
makes it seem absurd that the 
oil producers appear so indeci- 
sive. Opec calculates that its 
1 3 member nations have been 
losing $100 million a day 
between them while the oil 
price has slumped this year, so 
why the delay in taking a 
decision which will send the 
price back upwards? 

The answer is politics and 
Arab politics at that. While 
Opec has members from 
Indonesia, Latin and South 
America and Africa, it is also 
the one forum in the world 
spotlight where the differing 
factions in the Arab Gulf are 
involved, and by necessity 
have to appear to be acting 
cohesively. 

The fact that two have been 
at war for more than six years 
and have their supporters 
among the other Arab delega- 
tions cannot be allowed to 
become a big issue. The main 
issue has to remain oil and 
money. 

Opec now has to marry the 
science of economics with the 
art of politics, and h is this 
which is taking time. Progress 
has been made in Geneva and 
the mere fret that the coun- 
tries have accepted that a 
radical new output quota sys- 
tem will come into force is one 
of the most significant mo- 
ments in Opec’s 26-year 
history. 

In future, the output system 
should be set at a meeting

which need take no longer 
than a day and, with an easily 
controlled and policed system, 
Opec hopes that it will once 
again be in the driving seat 
when it comes to setting the 
world oil price. It relinquished 
that role to the free market last 
December when it opened the 
taps and sent production up 
far in excess of what the 
industrialized world needed. 

That decision was taken 
partly to hit at North Sea 
prices and development pros- 
pects in retaliation for what 
Opec saw as Britain reneging 
on an agreement to keep 
North Sea output at about the 
2.2 million barrel a day mark. 

Britain has consistently de- 
nied that it gave such an 
agreement— tbeChancellor.Mr 
Nigel Lawson, was the Energy 
Secretary at the time 'and 
many Opec delegates have 
taken great delight at his 
present discomfort in keeping 
sterling in check — and in any 
case removed the only mecha- 
nism it had of controlling 
North Sea output when it 
abolished the state oil trader, 
the British National Oil 
Corporation. 

However, the main reason 
for the change in Opec policy 
last December was Saudi 
Arabia's determination to 
stop the bickering and cheat- 
ing within the organization. 
The kingdom and its neigh- 


bour, Kuwait, were probably 
the only two among the 13 
who respected the Opec quota 
and pricing agreements. Other 
countries exceeded their quo- 
tas and cut prices by such 
methods as offering cheap and 
long-term credit or used oil to 
swap for capital goods and 
equipment 

By sending the price down 
to a level which squeezed 
revenues, Saudi Arabia sought 
to administer a short sharp 
lesson to the other member 
countries. It could weather 
any price storms because of its 
great reserves and also be- 
cause Sheikh Ahmed Zaki 
Yamani, the astute Saudi oil 
minister, had devised a 
scheme of selling oil to the 
leading companies which gave 
them a giiaranteeed profit 
level even as prices fell. 

It is now apparent that even 
Saudi Arabia thinks the price 
has gone down too far, but 
nevertheless it is still prepared 
to use the price weapon again 
if its fellow producers step out 
of line. 

It is because of that threat 
that Opec has now adopted 
the new quota system which 
gives each country a percent- 
age share of an overall produc- 
tion ceiling according to a 
formula which takes into ac- 
count such factors as popula- 
tion, historical production, 
proven reserves, a country's 


economic condition 
andprod ucuon ability. Iran, 
for instance, used to be able to 
pump out six million barrels a 
day from its oilfields, but 
because of war dam a ge to its 
terminals it has to keep output 
at about two million barrels. 

Under the scheme, Saudi 
Arabia and Kuwait receive 
increased production quotas 
in return for the production 
sacrifices they have made over 
the past six years to keep up 
the price. 

Sheikh Ali Khalifa, the Ku- 
waiti oil minister, has been the 
architect of the new quota 
system, promoting ideas be 
first voiced in Vienna more 
than a year ago that the time 
has now come for Opec to 
adopt a more scientific ap- 
proach to its negotiations. He 
has been backed by Saudi 
Arabia, although its support 
has never been strong enough 
to mean any embarrassment 
for the kingdom if the plan 
were rejected. 

Sheikh Ali Khalifa started 
the Geneva meeting as the 
lone, voice in the conference 
room and gradually persuaded 
the other ministers to accept 

Between now and Opec’s 
next meeting on December 14, 
the final figures will be cal- 
culated and in the meantime it 
seems that the output quota 
system in force for September 
and October will be rolled 
over until then. 

The adoption of that system 
sent the world oil price 
up from just under $ 10 a barrel 
to just above $15 and some oil 
traders in Geneva were 
predicting that the markets 
will today start marking the ofi 
price bade up. 

Opec’s aim is still for a price 
of between $ 1 7 and $ 1 9 by the 
end of this year and how they 
hope to achieve it wflj no 
doubt be explained this week 
by Sheikh Ali Khalifa and by 
Opec’s president, Mr Rihvanu 
Lukman, the Nigerian oil 
minister, when they are in 
London.

A temporary repair

Concern over squeeze on high streets 


By Judith Huntley 
Conuneirial P rop erty 
Correspondent 

Insurance companies and 
pension funds have £9 bfilkw 
invested in die fabric of 
Britain's high streets. They 
are concerned about the threat 
to town centre shopping posed 
by the moltitrale of out-oTtown 
shopping centres p binned 
throughout the country and 
the impact they will have ou 
property values. 

Mr Michael Mallmson, the 
director of Prudential Port- 


folio Managers, part of the 
Prudential Corporation, says 
that out-of-town retailing will 
grow rapidly but equity invest- 
ment in the property will be 
“bumpy, lumpy and risky — 
nevertheless K shall 
participate.” 

He spoke at the recent 
Confederation of British In- 
dnstry-Cdward Erdman con- 
ference during which it was 
announced that in future the 
Government win scrutinize all 
retail developments of more 
than 250,000 sq ft

doubts over the value of such 
properties. 

The yields for town centre 
retail property, once the best 
in the sector, have been rising 
as rental growth slows down. 
Despite this Mr Mallinson 
says his retail portfolio is still 
showing good positive perfor- 
mance. There are problems, 
however, for die investor who 
is looking to go ont-of-town. 
Schemes could have a maxi- 


mum life of 30 years with high 
expenditure needed to main- 
tain competitiveness. And 
there is likely to be an dement 
of oversnpply, says Mr 
MaUmson. 

He believes that both town 
centre and ont-of-town retail- 
ing will survive and flourish — 
“Not only is retailiiig in a state 
of radical change, so too is 
financial packaging. At 
present this laps at the shores 
of property hot I am convinced 
that it will shortly sweep over 
ns, giving great opportunities 
to those with insfelst.” 


There are two things that one should 
remember about monetary policy. 
The first is that, at any one time, no- 
one can define precisely what it is. The 
second is Milton Friedman's old 
adage, that the level of interest rates is 
a meaningless indicator of the tight- 
ness of monetary policy. 

With these in mind, we can turn to 
the . great monetary question of the 
day, the question which has exercised 
many a brilliant mind in the past two 
or three weeks. Is 1 percentage point, 
taking bank base rates to 11 per cent, 
enough? 

But, before answering this, we need, 
to set the scene. The statement that 
no-one can actually tell what mone- 
tary policy is, except in retrospect, is 
one that some, perhaps even the 
Chancellor, would challenge. 

But it is true. Take, for example, last 
Tuesday’s increase in base rates. 
Interest rates were lifted. Mr Lawson - 
said at the Mansion House, because 
the growth in narrow money, M0, was 
accelerating and because the exchange 
rate was weak. It had nothing to do, he 
added, with the growth of broad 
money and credit 

Now, supposing this to be true, the 
timing of the rate rise looks a little 
odd. The B ank of England would have 
picked up the acceleration in M0 
growth last month quite early, cer- 
tainly during the. month. And the 
pound was weak enough last month to 
require substantial intervention and a 
$372 milli on underlying fall in the 
reserves. 

The citing of M0 as one of the 
triggers for the rate rise was also rather 
puzzling. It had seemed to be the case 
that the target range for M0 was 2 to 6 
per cent. Now it appears that there are 
divergence indicators wi thin that 
target range. Growth of 4.5 per cent in 
M0 was bad enough to persuade the 
Chancellor that the exchange rate was 
telling him than s omething was 
wrong, but growth of 1 8.3 per cent was 
not Again, monetary policy can only 
be read in retrospect 

There is much to be said for 
continuity in policy, and most of all in 
monetary policy. It would be good if 
we had iL 

A year ago, also at the Mansion 
House, Mr Lawson said: “If, contrary 
to our expectations, the rapid growth 
of broad money were to show up as 
higher spending one would expect to 
see early money signals in the growth 
of M0." 

In its June Quarterly Bulletin* die 
Bank of England cited three factors 
which would indicate that liquidity, 
which had built up rapidly as a result 
of strong broad money growth,- was no 
longer being willingly held. The first 
was higher pay settlements, which we . 
probably are not seeing. The second 
was a shift of liquidity abroad by 


financial institutions and a con- 
sequent fall in sterling, which we 
probably are seeing. And the third was 
additional consumption by house- 
holds, which we certainly are seeing. 

But, despite the balance of the 
evidence, including his own pet M0 
aggregate, the Chancellor could de- 
clare last Thursday that: “There is 
every sign that people are holding the 
increased amounts of broad money 
quite willingly. And so long as this is 
so, its growth is not inflationary." 

Leaving aside the Governor of the 
Bank, of England’s view, also ex- 
pressed at the Mansion House, that 
“liquidity and credit have in fact been 
growing- uncomfortably fast,” it is 
perhaps understandable for the Chan- 
cellor to prefer to focus on the growth 
of narrow money. Other Chancellors 
have done so. 

Had Anthony (now Lord) Barber 
had the benefit of M0, rather than M 1, 
figures in the early 1970s, they would 
have shown growth of 12 per cent in 
1972 and under 11 per cent in 1973. 
Worrying, but not enough to cause 
any major panics. The relatively 
restrained growth of narrow money 
was comforting to the authorities in 
this period. But M3 grew by nearly 30 
per cent a year, and its growth 
certainly was inflationary. 

To return to the question: is 1 per 
cent enough? Enough for what?, is an 
appropriate, but not particularly help- 
ful answer, so let us take it step by 
step. Is it enough to stop the exchange 
rate from failing? It did not on Friday 
and there is every reason, to suppose 
that it will not in the next few days. 
But sterling will get to the point when 
it is clearly overshooting and, on 
exchange rate grounds alone, there is a 
case for toughing it out with the 
markets. 

Is it enough to rein back accelerat- 
ing M0 growth, charitably assuming 
that Mr Lawson was not speaking 
with forked tongue when he men- 
tioned it? Probably yes. A one-point 
rise in base rates should have the 
effect of shifting enough growth in 
non-interest bearing narrow money 
into interest-bearing broad money as 
to claw back M0 growth from 4.5 to 4 
percent 

Finally, is one point enough to 
deliver low inflation in the medium 
term? Almost certainly not The 
difficulty with liquidity is that if you 
allow it to build up, it has a habit of 
leaking out Mr Lawson is the 
ministerial equivalent of the 24-hour 
plumber. He has effected, when he 
could atlast be contacted, a temporary 
repair. But the chancels are that he wifi " 
have to be called out again.

Sharp movement likely 
over next few months 


Stagnation 

The success of the for- 
eigners is borne out by the 
weakness of industrial produc- 
tion and business sales in the 
US. 

Industrial production rose 
0.1 per cent in September 
following a revised increase of 
the July number from a fall of 
0.1 per cent to arise of 0.5 per 
cent. In August, industrial 
production rose 0.1 percent. 

A glance at the quarterly 
numbers, shows clearly that 
industrial production has not 
changed to any significant 
extent since the third quarter 
of 1985. 

Industrial production in the 
September quarter was 0.2 per 
cent greater than in the 
September quarter of 1985 
and 1.4 per cent greater than 
in the September quarter of 
1984 — a negligible increase. 
Thus, for two years, American 
industrial production has stag- 
nated and it is continuing to 
stagnate. 

There is no doubt that the 
position of business has 
deteriorated, in an operating 
sense. Since the third quarter 
of 1985. business sales have 
risen 0.7 per cent to July- 
August this year, while busi- 
ness inventories have risen 12 
per cent — three times as fast 
as sales have risen. 

This is a situation that is 
discouraging for business — 
trading to decisions to cut or 
restrain output and to contain 
or cut capital expansion 
programmes. 


Over the next few weeks the 
troth of the ancient Chinese 
curse “may you live in in- 
teresting times" will be of 
particular relevance to the 
gilt-edged market for two 
reasons. 

First, there will be the 
changes in the structure and 
organization of the gilt-edged 
market on October 27. Sec- 
ondly, we have to cope with 
the consequences of the sharp 
fall in the market over the 
fast few months, particularly 
September and early October. 
It seems likely that these 
factors will interact over the 
next few months to create 
sharp movement in the gen- 
eral level of the gilt-edged 
market. 

As no doubt everyone 
knows, on October 27 the 
traditional separation of 
agency broking from jobbing 
or market making in gilts will 
be abolished. Although 
developments in gilts will, to 
some extent, mirror changes 
in other British markets there 
are likely to be considerable 
differences as well because 
the Bank of England has 
devised a structure for the gill 
market which it is, in effect, 
imposing on the 27 market 
makers in the new era. 

There is not much un- 
certainty about how the new 
system will work — even if 
most of the market makers 
are not sure whether they can 
make money out of iL 

Ali market makers will be 
obliged to make two-way 
prices to their diems in all 
gilts under all conditions. 
They can deal direct with 
clients and need not be 
restricted to dealing only with 
agency brokers. We believe 
that in practice no commis- 
sions will be charged on 
institutional business by any 
market maker and all deals 
will be done “net" on a 
principal to principal basis. 

As far as the secondary 
market is concerned, the new 
structure is markedly dif- 
ferent from the previous sys- 
tem and much closer to fee 
practice of the American or 
Japanese bond markets. We 
believe that the changes in 
the gilt market will largely 
benefit investors. Further- 


more, there will be increased 
turnover which will bring 
greater liquidity. 

The reduction in the cost of 
dealing will probably give rise 
to a much greater amount of 
trading in gilts. 

There is likely to be a 
substantially increased vol- 
ume of dealing between mar- 
ket makers since there will be 
as many as 27 of them. In 
turn this will probably lead to 
an increase in volatility as the 
market jumps about in at- 
tempts to find the correct 
levcL 

There is some evidence 
that this is happening al- 
ready. There is evidence that 
the increased volatility of 
gilts over the past two 
months has arisen at least 
partly from the activities of 
firms who do not have busi- 
ness connections with an 
existing gilt jobber and who 
have started trading gilts 
outside the Stock Exchange. 

Although an increase in 
trading in Lhe market does 
not necessarily lead to greater 
volatility, the larger amounts 
of capital that gill-edged mar- 
kets makers will be devoting 
to the market will have the 
effect of encouraging them to 
trade lhe market and to move 
it around in order to generate 
a return. 

At this critical juncture in 
the history of the market we 
have also to contend with the 
aftermath of the recent sharp 
rise in long-term interest 
rates, with yields of 11 per 
cent now quite common on 
gilt-edged securities. Even if 
the market was not acquiring 
a tendency to greater volatil- 
ity, recent events will be 
pushing it in that direction. 

Although there has been 
some bad news, the fall in the 
market has been exaggerated 
substantially by the factors 
making for an increase in 
volatility, mentioned above. 
One result has been a 
substantial increase in the 
yield difference between me- 
dium-dated British and 
American bonds, which now 
stands at nearly 350 basis 
points — up 100 basis points 
from the situation obtaining 
at the end of July. Two years 


ago the differential was dose 
to zero. 

The main effect of the 
recent sharp rises in gilt yields 
has been that, taking 1986 as 
a whole, the gilt-edged mar- 
ket has hardly benefited from 
the Plaza agreement which 
led to coordinated interest 
rate cuts in the Group of Five 
economies. 

Although there have been a 
number of ingredients in- 
fluencing the latest fall there 
is no doubt that, apart from 
problems with steiiing, the 
difficulty from the domestic 
point of view has been the 
apparent laxity of credit con- 
ditions in recent months. 

Whether the 1 percentage 
point base rate rise an- 
nounced last Tuesday will be 
sufficient to reassure the mar- 
kets on this front is not yet 
clear. However, the principle 
of the rise having been con- 
ceded, it should not be too 
hard to do something more 
which would reassure the 
markets. Despite the 
Chancellor's agnosticism in 
Thursday's Mansion House 
speech, effective measures 
might include a further rise in 
short rales — or more 
controversially, the introduc- 
tion of measures to restrict 
the growth of mortgage lend- 
ing or consumer credit. 

As a prospective market 
maker 1 feel that this is all to 
the good. At least if the 
market is strong it will be 
easier to make money and 
there will not be, at fireL, too 
many rumours about people 
losing large sums of money as 
there have been over the past 
few months. 

In the longer term, though, 
it looks as though it will be 
difficult for the market mak- 
ers to earn an adequate return 
on their £600 million of 
capital. I follow the popular 
view that some market mak- 
ers will feel constrained even- 
tually to scale down their 
operations — or to drop out 
altogether.

Commenting on the results , Roy Witts, Chairman of Thames Water Authority said 
“Against a background price rise of only 3 per cent, our continuing efficient? drive both in 
operational and in capital expenditure terms, has resulted in the first half year's pm fit 
target being exceeded. We anticipate that the second half year will also exceed target. 

Between September 1985 and September 1986 we repaid £58m of our outstanding 
loans as well as meeting alt capital expenditure from internal funds. 

We are actively selling our expertise both at home and abroad to provide future 
profits for the benefit of our customers"

Formidable task faces the 
new chief of BankAmerica 


From Bailey Morris, 
Washington 

The return of Mr A W 
“Tom” Clausen to the embat- 
tled BankAmerica Corpora- 
tion is by all accounts 
controversial 

Although there was general 
relief at the departure of Mr 
Samuel Armacost, former 
“boy wonder” of the banking 
world, after five turbulent 
y ear s, the same cannot be said 
of Mr Clausen’s reappoint- 
ment as chief executive offi- 
cer, a post he held from 1970 
to 1981 when he quadrupled 
earnings and assets. 

Despite an impressive 
record which led to his 
appointment as head of the 
World Bank, Mr Clausen is 
now criticized for his account- 
ing techniques and an over- 
rapid expansion which got the 
bank into trouble as early as 
1980. 

Claire Giannuu Hoffinan, 
daughter of the bank’s 
founder, is a strong critic of 
the Clausen reappointment. 
Still active at 81, she does sot 
mince words when assessing 
the management shuffle which 
led to Mr Armacost’s, well- 
financed but hasty departure. 

“To bring Oaosen back is a 
joke. It is absolutely 
incredible,'* she said, being- 
strongly of the opinion that 
the tank should accept a $2.8 
billion (£2 billion) takeover 
offer from Fust Interstate 
Bank Corporation. 

In her view both chief 
executives “riddled” the bank, 
causing a haemorrhage of bad 
loans that culminated in 
record losses of $640 million 
during the second quarter. 

On Friday, BankAmerica 
reported a much improved 
thud quarter performance 
showing a loss of $23 millfon. 

It is more generally agreed 
that a combination of mar- 
ginal loans and an unfbrseen 
period of disinflati on which 
battered the energy and farm 
industries caused 



Mr A W Clan s ew: Reappointment caused co g ti uvg r sy 
BankAmerica's present woes, other officials were asked to 


In addition, a legacy from Mr 
Clausen’s ambitious expan- 
sion drive in the 1970s, the 
bank is overstaffed 

Over the past five quarters, 
BankAmerica has reported 
losses of close to Si J MB on 
in a trend that is expected to 
continue into the third quar- 
ter. Despite these setbacks, it 
appeared that Mr Armacost, 
aged 47, would survive. 

But events of the week of 
September IS sealed his fate. 
False rumours circulated that 
BankAmerica, Lake Conti- 
nental Illinois Bank before it, 
was about to faiL The bank's 
share price plummeted to 
$9.50, the lowest level in 
memory as investor con- 
fidence sank. Federal regu- 
lators began pressing board 
members to make a manage- 
ment change. 

The end came for Mr 
Armacost at a regularly sched- 
uled board meeting on Octo- 
ber 6. Mr Armacost and two 


leave the room. When they 
returned, Mr Armacost was 
out and Mr Clausen, sup- 
ported by directors he helped 
to appoint, was in. To ease Mr 
Annacost’s pain, the board 
awarded hi nr a controversial 
severance package of an es- 
timated £1.7 million. 

In announcing Mr 
Clausen’s reappointment, 
board members said they were 
seeking to restore stability to 
the bonk which has been 
plagued also by an exodus of 
middle management. 

Implied in foe announce- 
ment and subsequent state- 
ments by Mr Clausen was foe 
message that directors in- 
tended to fight the takeover 
offer by First Interstate 
headed by Mr Joseph Pinola, a 
former BankAmerica official 
“I did not accept this position 
to preside over 
BankAmerica’s demise,” Mr 
Clausen said. 

But the task he faces is 


for mid able, analysts estimate 
that BankAmerica would be 
worth much more ifbroken up 
into pieces and merged into 
another company. 

This is precisely what Fust 
Interstate intends in its SIS a 
share takeover offer. In read- 
ing the fine print, it becomes 
dear that First Interstate 
would attempt to sell-off an 
estimated $15 billion in assets 
before merging foe two 
organizations into a banking 
conglomerate operating in 
more than 12 states with total 
assets of about $ 143 billion. 

Under these conditions, 
assuming BankAmerica’s loan 
portfolio does not deteriorate 
dramatically, it could become 
an onparaUded prize to a 
suitor willing to accept foe 
risks. This otplains why oth- 
ers are beginning to take a 
doserlook. 

Last week, even as Mr 
Clausen prepared to fight off 
first Interstate which .is 
reportedly ready to raise its 
offer to between $21 and $23 a 
share. New York’s Citicorp 
indicated h too was interested 
in buying all or put of 
BankAmerica to gain a long 
sought base in the lucrative 
California market. Security 
Pacific Corporation has been 
mentioned also as a posable 
suitor. 

Mr Clausen said he was 
reappointed to “accelerate the 
assets sales and cost-cutting” 
that his predecessor was un- 
able to accomplish. 

Aiding hira in this effort will 

be Mr Thomas Cooper, foe. 
single-minded President of foe 
Bank of America division, 
who was brought in under Mr 
Armacost fast August to slash 
costs. He did it by eliminating 
jobs at a rate of more than 
1,000 a mouth. 

BankAmerica employees, 
many who opposed Mr 
Clausen's reappointment, said 
foe new chief executive faces 
an immediate, tough task of 
retaining the best employees 
who fear a bloodletting. 


f USM REVIEW i ; 

PEP’s appearance 

underlines need 
for new approach 


The Unlisted Securities 
Market received a welcome 
boost when foe Treasury an; 
nounced that USM sioda will 
now be included in foe 
sonal Equity Plan. 

An earlier proposal to ex- 
clude USM stocks because .foe 
shares were too high-risk had 
provoked complaints that this 
was both arbitrary and not 
even based on &cl 

PEPS managed by foe mg 
institutions are unlikely 10 
invest heavily in the ISM, but 
the lack of an option to do so 
may have discouragwJ com- 
panies from chasing the 
secondary market as a means 
of flotation. 

Many small companies are 
well aware that thc **new 
world” will require a different 
and more active approach to 

communications with inves- 
tors and shareholders. One 
group of USM companies 
which at an early sage xk- 
ognized foe need to take the 
initiative was foe club of 
United States companies 
known as tbe^ London 
Connection. . 

The first raectfcg of foe 
London Connection was hew 
at Boston. Mossl in June 
when a group -of 1 fund man- 
agers, analysts and jobbers 
flew out fora week to visit the 
high-tech research and 
production facilities. 

After the successor the trip 
foe dub intends to meet bi- 
annually, alternating between 
London and foe US. The next 
meeting will be in London 
next month and, given the 
easier access, the attendance is 
expected to be substantially 


___ dub has expanded 
from foe original five mem- 
bers — CVEX Infrared. Pacer 
Systems. Optometries and 
Colorgen - to seven. The new 
companies are Ktearfold and 
Lexicon. 


The growth in foe roe of 
communications and market* 
mg services in foe financial 
sector over the past few years 
was dearly reflected test work 
in foe results of foe Mrorpte 
Croup. 

Thu company was formed 
six yean ago to advise insur- 
ance companies and otter 
financial groups on foe design 
of promotional literature and 
overall marketing strategy, ft 
has grown rapidly cm foe sack 
of the increased «w«roea by 
financial institutions of foe 
need for more professional 
and effective communi- 
cation*. 

Pretax profits in the tat 
financial year were mss betas 
£750,000. and foe figures an- 
nounced tins week showed a 
30 per cent recreate to 
£324.000 in the first six 
months of this year. Turnover 
increased by 58 per cent 10 
£10.3 million. 

This excellent pTO teTOfr . . 
however, came with a sung fit 
the tail The company** t 
tion. when it camera foe! 
in May. 1985. was to 
money to fired a ntirror^ 
operation in the US. ' ? 

To do this as rapidly as for 
company originaHy faopefo j 
proved difficult, and un 
unease ott this scon: 
reinforced by news 
departure of the joint 
ing director who nu 
operation. The release 
25 per cent 

depressed the shares to . 

It is another instance ofhms - 
thc market is paying recreat- 
ing attention to foe manage- 
ment quality of p*K 
businesses rather than to 
earnings per share growth.

If you’ve ever puzzled over the name! 
U-BiX, we’d like to put you in the picture 

For years, we’ve been known as makers off 
the most reliable copiers in the business, but you”: 
probably don’t know about our new range ofM 
office equipment M 

Fax machines, word processors, personal ! 
computers, and electronic filing are now as much ! 
a part of our business as photocopiers. : J 

Si 

That’s why we decided it was high time we- 
changed our name 

So from October 1st, we’ll be known as;: 
Konica Business Machines. J 

Now you might be wondering what Konica f 
(more famous for their cameras) have to do with; ■. 
U-BiX, and office equipment 

Well, quite simply, both Konica and U-BiX; 
share the same parents. A company called? 

Konishiroku. 5 

».* 

After years of working alongside each other^ 
contributing and swapping ideas, it seemed silly§ 
not to use die same corporate identity f 

After all, both sides have made significant" 
breakthroughs in their s imilar fields. 

Konica for instance, developed and 
produced the world’s first ‘through-the-lens’ 
automatic exposure SLR camera. They also 
produce their own high quality colour film. 

And together with our background in 
consistently excellent copiers, we are about to 
launch a revolutionary new frill colour copier 

Of course this is only one part of our 
extensive range of office equipment, which 
includes high quality products right across the 
board 

Understandably, we’re quite proud of our 
new identity and to celebrate, for a limited period, 
we’re giving away a free camera with every new 
photocopier or fax machine. 

So to complete the picture, just fill in the 
coupon below and we’ll send you the new Konica 

35mm Konica colour 
film

Selection was stiff. The first interview 
with a panel from the local business 
community was difficult; the final one in 
Edinburgh more so. “I ended up

“Positive encouragement," she says.

Catriona began with an overdraft for 
50 per cent of her capital and a family 
loan for the remainder. She has been able 
to lease her own shop, but has had to 
start by producing a smaller range than 
planned. And. most importantly has 
already had to learn to modify some of 
her original ideas according to the

is that she designs her own clothes by

some herself, and is able to offer an 
individual service to customers. She is

All three are grateful for the skills the 
Graduate Enterprise Programme taught 
them, and despite teething troubles and 
initial difficulties are dete rmin ed to cany 
on and to expand. But what of the 
Programme selectors? What do they 
expect from applicants? 

Professor Bums of Cranfield is quite 
clear. “Personality,” he says. “We can 
work on the idea — help to improve that, 
but not on the person. Successful 
entrepreneurs have three things in 
common: drive, commitment mid a 
rugged personality. That is the vital 
combination needed to go out and make 
things happen.” “Although we are dearly 
looking for a good business idea too" he

Law Report October 20 1986 


Public authority’s right 
to plead time-bar 


Arnold v Central Electricity 
Generating Board 
Before Sir John, Donaldson, 
Master of the Rolls. Lord Justice 
Ralph Gibson and Lord Justice 
Nicholls 

[Judgment October 15] 

An action commenced in 
April 1984 against a public 
authority, for persona! injuries 
which had first arisen in or 
before 1943 but had not been 
discovered until October 1981, 
was time-barred, and had been 
continuously since 1944. be- 
cause the accrued limitation 
defence conferred by section 21 
of the Limitation Act 1939 bad 
not been abrogated by any 
subsequent legislation, even 
though section 21 itself had been 
repealed in 1954. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in a reserved judgment, allowing 
an appeal by the defendant, the 
Central Electricity Generating 
Board, the successor of Bir- 
mingham Corporation as owner 
and operator of a power station 
at which the plaintiffs deceased 
husband, Albert Edward Ar- 
nold. had worked as a boiler 
cleaner from 1938 to 1943. from 
an order of Mr Michael Ogden. 
OC sitting as a deputy High 
Court judge ( The Times, Janu- 
ary24 1 986; [1 986} 3 WLR 171). 

The deputy judge bad held 
that an action commenced by 
the plaintiff; Mrs Emma May 
Arnold, as widow of Mr Arnold 
and administratrix of his estate, 
for damages for personal inju- 
ries caused by the defendant's 
negligence, was not s&rute- 
barred. Mr Arnold had died on 
1982 of mesothelioma which 


Birmingham Corporation's 
right to plead a time bar had 
accrued not later than April 
1944. In Yew Bon Tew, Lord 
Bright man said that, once such a 
right had accrued, albeit under a 
procedural statute, it was not to . 
be taken away by conferring on 
subsequent legislation a 
retrospective operation unless 
such a construction was un- 
avoidable. ■ . 

The accrued right had passed 
to the electricity board under the 
Electricity Act 1947, section 12. 
of which. disapplied section 21 
of the 1939 Act in respect of 
actions against the board arid 
applied sections 2 and 3 of the 
1939 Act to such actions as if the 
limitation period were three 
years. No one suggested that 
that Act had any retrospective 
effect upon previously accrued 
rights. •‘ : ' 

The 1954 Act had. abolished 
special limitation periods for 
public authorities, repealing sec- 
tion 21 of the 1939 Act and 
section 12 of the 1947 Act. and 
bad amended section 2 of die 
1939 Act by adding a proviso 
reducing the limitation period 
for persona] injury and fetal 
claims to three years. Section 
7(1) of the 1954 Act had 
expressly provided that that 
would not affect limitation peri- 
ods which bad already expired. 

Section 1(1) of the Limitation 
Act 1963 had provided that 
section 2(1) of the 1939 Act 
would not afford any defence in 
an action in respect of personal 
injuries where die plaintiff was 
in a state of justifiable ignorance 
as to his' right of action lor more 
than two years after it had 
accrued; and section 6 of the 


had been repealed, “any defence 
available by virtue of any ruieoi 
law" included the defence under 
the rale of law stated in lew Bon 
Tew. and the accrued defence 
under section 21 was therefore 
expressly preserved by section 
1(4). 

In Knipe v British 
Board (T1972] l QB .361) the 

effect of abrogating accrued 
limitation defences under the 
six-year limitation period fo r 


in 1954. . , , 

Id bis Lordship's opinion that 
derision was unsatis&ctoty m 
some respects, and he haw 
difficulty in seeing how the 
statutory provisions there 
considered could achieve that 
. result; an accrued defence under 
the unamended section 2(1) was 
a defence available by virtue of 
the rule in Yew Bon Tew, not of 
section 2(1). 

Certainly Knipe could not 
require or justify the conclusion 
that section t of the 1963 Act 
had abrogated an accrued de- 
fence under section 21. 

Section 1 of the Limitation 
.Act 1975 had inserted new 
provisions (sections 2A'to 2D) 

into the 1939 Act, which did not 
expressly purport to remove any 
accrued right from anybody, but 
did have tne effect, inter alia, of 
modifying in favour of pfaintifB 
the terms previously applicable 
to existing causes of action. 

Section 2A did nothing to 
deprive a defendant of a' valid

1981 and which the plaintiff 1963 Act had given section 1(1) good without relying on section 
claimed had t*rn»sffd by his "effect in relation to cause s of 2A. . 

exposure to asbestos during bis action which had accrued before - When the 1975'Act was read 
employment at the power sta- - the passing of this Act”. with the preceding legislation. 

Parliament had thereby dem- • ■ * 

onstraied an intention to inter- 
fere retrospectively with accrued 
rights to plead time bars, but 
only to the extent provided in 
section 1. 

While dm defendant was not 


tion. 

Section 21(1) of the Limita- 
tion Act 1939 (repealed by 
section 1 of the Law Reform 
(Limitation of Actions, etc) Act 
1954) provided, inter alia, that 
no action in negligence was to be 
brought against a public 
authority unless it was com- 
menced within one year of the 
accrual of the cause of action. 

Mr Anthony Ntchofl for the 
defendant; Mr John Foy for the 
plaintiff. 

LORD JUSTICE RALPH 
GIBSON said that he was 
persuaded that the defendant 
was correct in its contention 
that the principle slated by the 
Privy Council in Yew Ban Tew v 
Kendeman Bas Mara ([1983] 1 
AC 5S3) applied and that there- 
fore the defendant's accrued 
right to plead a limitation 
defence, acquired by its prede- 
cessor under section 21 of the 
1939 Act, still persisted since it 
had not been expressly taken 
away and nothing in any sub- 
sequent statute required w jus- 
tified the conclusion that that 
right had been impliedly de- 
stroyed. 


the conclusion that Parliament 
had intended to make accrued 
time-bars arising under the pro- 
visions!!] force since 1954 to be 
subject to tiie new provisions in 
section 2A was unavoidable; it 
was . equally dear . that Par- 


entitled before 1963 to plead j lament bad hot intended- to 


accrued time bars under both 
section 21 and section 2(1) of 
the 1939 Act. the existence of 
the second defence did not 
impair the section 21 defence 
nor extend the effect of section 
1(1) of the 1963 Ad beyond its 
plain meaning. 

There was accordingly noth- 
ing in section I which impaired 
the defendant’s right to plead 
the bar accrued tinder section 
21, and nothing in the 1963 Act 
as a whole could be construed as 
having that effect. 

Further, section 1(4) of the 
1963 Act had provided that 
nothing in section 1 excluded or 
affected any defence which 
might be available in any per- 
sonal injury action fay virtue of 
any enactment other than sec- 
tion 2(1) or the 1939 Act or of 
any rufe of law. or equity. 
Although section 21 was not 
within “any enactment**, since it 


Tribunal erred over lock-out 


Express and Star Ltd v 
Banday and Others 

Before Mr Justice Poppfewell, 
Mrs M. L. Boyle and Miss A. P. 
Vale 

[Judgment October 10] _ • 

In a case concerning the 
introduction of new technology 
in the newspaper industry the 
Employment Appeal Tribunal 
held that for the purpose of 
deciding whether the employers 
were conducting a lock-out, as 
defined .by paragraph 24 of 
Schedule 1 3 to the Employment 
Protection (Consolidation) Act 
1978. regard should be ted to 
the facts and that an industrial 
tribunal had erred in law in 
asking whether or not the 
employers were in bread] of 
contract 

The employers. Express and 
Star Ltd, newspaper publishers, 
had appealed from a decision of 
a Birmingham industrial tri- 
bunal last January that they had 
jurisdiction to hear complaints 
of unfair dismissal by the 
employees. Mr RJML Sunday 
and 95 others. 

The employees cross-ap- 
pealed on the ground that the 
industrial tribunal bad erred in 
law in finding that they had been 
taking part in industrial action 
and ted not been locked -out at 
the date of their dismissals. 

Section 62 of the 1978 Act. as 
amended by section 9 of the 
Employment Act 1982 provides; • 

-(1) The provisions of this 
section shall have effect In 
relation to an employee (the 
complainant) who claims that 
he has been unfairly dismissed 
by his employer where at the. 
dace of dismissal — (a) tire 
employer was conducting or 
instituting a lock-out. or (b) the 
complainant was taking part in a 
strike or other industrial action. 

“(2) In such a case an indus- 
trial tribunal shall not deter- 
mine whether the dismissal was 


fair or unfair unless it is shown 
— (a) that one or more relevant 
employees of the same employer 
have not been dismissed . . 

Mr Malcolm Lee, QC and Mr 
John Mittine for the employers 
Mr Alexander Irvine, QC and 
Mr Adrian Lynch for the 
employees. 

MR JUSTICE POPPLE- 
WELL said that the industrial 
tribunal found that on February 
25, 1985 access to the 
employers' premises was dosed 
with the exception of a manage- 
ment manned door and employ- 
ees on arrival were shepherded 
to a meeting, at which those who 
refused to wot* 'with the new 
technology were suspended 
without pay. They were sub- 
sequently dismissed. 

The tribunal bad then consid- 
ered section ■ 62(2Xa) and 1 
62(4)(bXii). which relates to 
industrial action, and found that 
a Mr Alsbrook was a “relevant 
employee”. -. - - 

It was agreed by both sides 
that the industrial tribunal bad 
misdirected themselves 
concerning his position but if 
Mr Irvine succeeded -in his 
argument that what bad oc- 
curred on February 25 was a 
lock-out and not .industrial ac- 
tion, Mr Al$ brook’s position 
became irrelevant. 

Relevant employees in rela- 
tion to a lock-out were defined 
differently, from relevant, 
employees m relation to a strike 
or other industrial action. 

The appeal tribunal had been 
told that all the employees 
would be enabled to bring their 
claims if there bad been- a lock- 
out whereas a more limited 
number only would be eligible if 
there had been a strike or 
industrial action. 

Paragraph 24 of Schedule 13 
defined both lock-out and strike. 

The industrial tribunal had 
adopted the test: “Were the 
employers, in breach of 


Evidence of indecent intention 


Regina w Court 
Before Lord Justice Ralph Gib- 
son. Mr Justice Hirst and Mr 
Justice Otion 
[Reasons October 17] 

Evidence of indecent inten- 
tion did not have to be excluded 
as irrelevant to a charge under 
section 14(1) of the Sexual 
Offences Act 1956 even though 
positive proof of indecent inten- . 
tion was not required by the 
section which was silent about 
the necesary mental element in 
the offence of indecent assault 
on a woman. 

Lord Justice Ralph Gibson so 
stated when giving reserved 
reasons in the Court of Appeal 
for dismissing an appeal by 
Robert Christopher Court, aged 
27. from conviction at Caernar- 
fon Crown Court (Mr Justice 
Mars-Joncs and a jury) of 
indecent assault on a girl aged 

1 2. He was put on probation for 
three years with a condition of 
12 months' psychiatric treat- 
ment. 

Mr Trevor Halbert, assigned 
bv Lhe Registrar of Criminal 
Appeals, for the appellant: Mr 

Robin Spencer for the Crown. 

LORD JUSTICE GIBSON 


said that the appellant, a shop 
assistant in a gift shop, asked a 
girt who visited -the shop with' 
her. brother whether she would 
let him spank her. She. said 
‘"No"’ and walked away bui later 
he seized bier arm. pulled her 
across his knees ^ and. struck her 
12 times outside her shorts on . 
her buttocks. He stopped when- 
her brother appeared. 

When interviewed by pofifee 
the appellant admitted spanking 
the girl and. when asked why. 
said: “I don't know — buttock 
fetish". It was the first time he 
had ever done it. 

At trial be admitted assault 
but denied it was indecent. Hie 
judge rejected an invitation to 
exclude the statement about 
"buttock fetish" on the ground 
that, being a secret 

uncormnumcated motive, it 
could not make indecent on 
assault which by refe r e n ce to the 
overt circumstances was not 
mdeccnL ' 


The judge, rightly, directed 
the jury that it was cmnecessary- 
for the prosecution to prove that 
die girl knew or thoiigil the 
assault on her to be indecent ' 

-It sufficed if . thcj^cktaira- 
stances were capable in law of. ‘ Colwyn Bay. 


being held to be indecent and 
the jury held them to be so. 

It was open to the prosecution 
to call evidence available of an 
admitted secret . motive which 
actuated rhe accused tocomntit 
the particular offence char ged 

. The 7 , court's discretion to ex- 
clude prejudicial -evidence of 
JiiUe or .no probative value 
would arise and be exercised 
where the accused's secret sex- 
ual motive could not affect the 
manner in which he did the acts 
complained of and* evidence of 
motive was not relevant on any 
other issue ro the.case. - 

Their Lordships did not ac- 
cept' foe Crown's submission 
that the existence of a secret 
souial .motive was always 
admissible as a make-weight on 
foe issue of objective indecency

disturb rights accrued prior to 
1954 imcfar section 21 of the 
1939 Act, and that conclusion 
was supported by tiro inclusion 
of section 2B(2). 

His Lordship was content to 
have reached that conclusion, 
since it would be a suprising 
consequence of the 1975 Act if it 
had deprived tiro defendant of 
an accrued right which had 
remained unimpaired from 
194410 1975. - 
The Limitation Ad 1980 was 
a consolidating measure, and 
did not In this respect alter the 
position achieved by the 1975 
Act. The appeal should there- 
fore be allowed and judgment 
entered for the defendant. 

The Master of the Rolls and 
Lord Justice Nicholls agreed.

contract?" If they were-not. the 
tribunal said, they were entitled 
to enforce the terms of that 
contract and whatever action 
they took to enforce those terms 
and conditions could not con- 
stitute a lock-out. • 

The whole issue was unfortu- 
nately coloured by rite unhappy 
phrase "lock-out”. It gave the 
impression of a hard-hearted 
nineteenfo-centry : employer. 
But it merely meant that an 
employer was taking steps to 
enforce what lie believed to be 
his legitimate rights to persuade 
the workforce to comply with 
what he believed to be their 
conditions of contract. 

Mr Irvine had pointed out 
that there was ample authority 
to the effect that there could be 
industrial action where ihfere 
was no breach of contract,' and 
that the same must apply to a 
lock-out.' 

The appeal tribunal rejected 
the argument that the breach of 
contract lest was a proper test It 
wasnot necessary to mboqfonue 
it to rove efficacy to paragraph 
24 of Schedule 13: 

. It was an unnecessary burden 
on an industrial tribunal to seek 
to investi^ie foe rights and 
wrongs of a dispute; they were 
concerned only with whether 
there was a dispute. 

It was not necessary to remit 
the case to foe industrial tri- 
bunal. U had not been seriously 
contested that if the breach of 
contract -test were . wrong foe 
evidence as to wbat took place 
an February .25 could lead to 
any other conclusion than that 
of a lock-om. 

The employees' appeal would 
be allowed. 'The employers* 
appeal would be stayed pending 
further appeal. Leave to appeal 
to foe Court of Appeal would be 
granted- .

Back play the lingering 
memory as smoke 
subsides in war game 

By David Hands ® 

Correspondent

16 


. Some gomes remain sport- 
wg contests, some become 
ware. There was a bit of both 
at Sudbury on Saturday but 
the redeeming element was 
the back play of both sides. It 
was that sense of adventure 
which Ungers after the crude 
unpleasantness of some of the 
forward exchanges. Wasps 
achtcvim only their fifth win 
against Cardiff and their first 
since 1961 by two goals, a try 
and three penalty goals to a 
goal, a try and two penalties. 

ll was possibly die strongest 
combination that Cardiff have 
fielded this season, t ' 


hair wnh concussion after a 
kick an the head (he will be 
absent for the next three 
weeks) and thereafter there 
was sporadic violence, of 

which the main vic tim 


of the elements. Andrew 
kicked three penalties when 
Cardiff collapsed the «p""n 
and Lozowski made a sweet 
midfield 


gsg&sss 


and cut about the mouth and 
bps. 

Wasps; loss was' the more 
severe, since they had to bring 
on a hooker to play back row, 
but their forwards showed 
enormous commitment. 
Probyn and Pinncgar bad 
outstanding games in the tight 
mid loose and behind them 
Pratt and Andrew were the 
more influential halves. 

Pratt is coming on by leaps 
and bounds at scrum half and 
Andrew's increased maturity 
and physical commitment to 


neiaea uus season, injury and T 1 Physical commitment to 
unavailability having hit them !* is obvious. He and 
badly. But though the individ- ««owski combined spien- 


►*r* 


ual confidence remains, the 
collective confidence has yet 
to be developed and Cardiff's 
fixture list allows little room 
for error. 

Nor do Wasps permit lib- 
erties: there is a mental hard- 
ness about them which made 
encouraging watching for two 
England selectors. Martin 
Green and Tony Jorden. The 
from rows locked horns from 
the beginning and Daniel 
Neyrat, the French referee, 
never got to grips with the 
consequent problems. 

To be feir to him, if the 
forwards are so disposed there 
is tittle any referee can do save 
award a siring of penalties 
(which he did) or send some- 
one off! Two players did leave 
foC field, but for injuries; 
Rose, foe Wasps No. 8, went 
off midway through the first 


didly into the g listing, awk- 
ward wind in the second fa»if 
playing shore balls between 
them which gave their weak- 
ened back row the r hw? to 
support property. 

When they moved it wide 
the thrust of Fellow and 
Stringer brought the best from 
the Cardiff defence, in which 
Roberts had a si g nifi cant 
game as well as supporting 
everything in sight when his 
team attacked. Stringer, it 
should be said, played soundly 
in defence, too; he caught ail 
die high balls put up by John, 
though it was difficult not to 
wonder whether the retired 
Gareth Davies would not have 
harnessed the wind for Cardiff 
to better effect. Still John is 
the newcomer making his way 
in a team who are out of sons. 

Wasps led 21-4 at the 
interval having had first use 


two minutes Bailey 

scored a second ny when, with 

every Cardiff back committed 
to attack, he intercepted a pass 
and ran in from 55 metres. 

Cardiff's response, assisted 
by Ctothers keeping the ball 
alive, came when Hadley beat 
Smith on the outside and 
chipped to the corner: He 
overran the ball but Ring did 
not. John could not convert 
but when he kicked two 
second-half penalties it 
seemed as though Cardiff 
would nibble their way back. 

A glorious try by Wasps 
ensured they did not. Stringer 
ra n th e ball from his own 22- 
metre line and found support 
from Probyn, Bonner, the 
enthusiastic Bartholomew *nH 
Pratt. With Cardiff's defence 
drawn to one side of the fieM. 
Andrew directed a diagonal 
kick to Smith, who scored. 

Cardiff despite their grow- 
ing lineont dominance, could 
only weak Crotbers over fora 
try from a tapped penalty and 
count their blessings when a 
desperate hand prevented Bai- 
ley scoring once more.

Fitzgerald drops 
out and Gibson 
drops in for Irish 


By George Ace 


Mike Gibson the Younger 
dons the green jersey of Ireland 
for the first time since 1981 for 
the game against Romania in 
DuMin on Saturday week. 
Cieran Fitzgerald is dropped 
and the captaincy goes to Donal 
Lenihan. Phil Orr will win his 
Slst cap, setting a world record 
for a front row forward. And 
Michael Kiernan is in the centre 
despite the feet that he has not 
played competitively for the 
past four weds owing to a kg 
injury. 

Otherwise, the deliberations 
of the Irish selectors were wholly 
predictable for the opening 
international of the season; as 
predictable, that is. as any 
outcome of sn Irish rugby 
selection meeting can be. 

Gibson, now playing 
forLondon Irish, was not in the 
30-man panel announced 10 
days ago; but according to the 
chairman of selectors, Eddie 
Coleman, he "has been 
watched". That is more than can 
be said in the case of Kiernan, 
whose selection breaks an un- 
written law that if a player 
misses bis dob match through 
■injury the week before the 
selectors meet he is not consid- 
ered or. at best, gives way to the 
ubiquitious A. N. Other. 

A fit Kieman's place was 
never in doubt but in the present 
circumstances it looks a dicey 
method of selection, no matter 
bow it turns out. 


Gibson, an extremely talented 
No. 8 when he played in ail four 
championship games in 1979, 
had his career cut short through 
injuries. He made his last inter-' 
national appearance against 
Wales in 198 1 when be came on 
as a replacement for Donal 
Spring. 

Injuries to Spillane and Mor- 
row almost certainly opened the 
door to Gibson's unexpected 
return and if the years have not 
dimmed his talents he is fully 
capable of justifying his 

selection. 

Harfeison, who replaces Fitz- 
gerald. took over for the first 
time when Fitzgerald was in- 
jured early in die game against 
Wales in Dublin in 1984 and 
was retained for the remaining 
two matches that season against 
England and Scotland. He mer- 
its his recall although the 
decision to include Fitzgerald 
among the replacements sug- 
gests that, in the minds of the 
selectors at least, there remains 
an element of doubt.

Predictable Bath 
get a fright 


By Bryan Stiles

Bath . 

..... 



K’k-uit 


The dangers lurking in the 
international arena for England 
were perhaps exposed as Bath, 
the country's current premier 
team, almost had victory 
snatched from their grasp on 
Saturday in (his Merit table A 
game. ... 

Ud by Hill so crucial to both 
his dub and country as captain, 
scrum half and play-maker. 
Bath seemed to have the game 
in their pocket, leading 21-6 
midway through the second 
half. They had battered Bristol 
into ncar-submissioR with a 
marauding pack who had domi- 
nated everything except the 
lineout, Hill combining with his 
back row as the main strategy of 
attack. 

But with such a comfortable 
lead and with their confidence at 
a high point. Bath's stereotyped 
play was laid bare as Bristol's 
enterprising backs stretched 
their cover defence wide with 
incisive handling, and then 
quickly switched their attacking 
thrust back inside to collect two 
converted tries, which brought 
them within three points of their 
opponents' score. 

Despite the dangers. Hill and 
his England half back partner, 
Barnes, persisted with their 
strategy or simply kicking for 
position or playing almost 
everything back to their for- 
wards. Before the Bristol 
fightback. Barnes had ch a nce d 
his ami on just one occasion, 
and it produced an exhilarating 


Hash of excitement by die 
sudden demonstration of rare 
enterprise. With such high qual- 
ity wings as Swift and Trevaskis 
on call a change of policy would 
surely have paid dividends. 

Bath can, of course, point to 
their victory as justification for 
persisting with their tactics, but 
it was a near-run thing. When he 
leads England Hill will have the 
incomparable Underwood and 
the thrusting Bailey to add even 
more potency, if be deigns to use 
them. 

Bristol were well served in the 
lineout by Blackmore and 
Skuse, but their pack were often 
pushed back yards at scrums, on 
one occasion by some 20 yards, 
and were so overwhelmed that 
they collapsed the s c r um near 
the Line, and Bath were awarded 
a penalty try which Barnes 
converted. He kicked two pen- 
alties to Hogg's one, to give Bath 
a 12-3 lead as die interval. 

Hill and Simpson set up 
Trevaskis for a try which was 
convened by Barnes, who 
continued to swap penalties 
with Hogg. Bristol brought the 
game alive with splendid tries 
near the end from Knibbs and 
Thomas but Bath held out for 
victory.

Newport’s attacking display 


By Gerald Davies

Marcus Hannaford, who is 
included in the England squad 
to train in Portugal, was taken 
off on a stretcher ax minutes 
into the second half at Rodney 
Parade on Saturday. The liga- 
ments around his right knee 
were so severely torn that, sadly, 
there isa question mark over the 
Gloucester scrum haft's avail- 
ability for the rest of the season. 
Such is the bleak prog nosis. 

The injury occurred when 
Newport, 21-6 in the lead, fell so 
confident they ignored the ob- 
vious chance of scoring more 
points by kicking for goal a°d- 
instead opted for a short pen- 
alty. It was one of those subtle 
rushes where a forward dem- 
onstrates his particular brand of 
machismo by charging for the 
tine with others behind him to 
give a helping shove. The maul 
twisted, so did Hannaford and 
he fell awkwardly out of the 
mauL Richard Williams re- 
placed him. 

If many a match, so good 
looking m prospect, quite often 
fails, the converse can equally be 
true. This was a case in point It 
was a fine match with Newport 
winning by four tries, five 
penalties and a drop goal to 
three goals and one penalty. 


_ Gloucester had hardly had 
time to timber up when they 
found themselves reefing. With 
Newport's back row, panku- 
laxiy George, scavenging for the 
loose ball and Perry and Waters 
devouring the lineout, the borne 
team were IS points up in as 
many minutes. Quick pos- 
session gave Turner a chance to 
rule matters. CUlard. White and 
Batten all scored lovely, well- 
conceived tries from thrilling 
runs. Turner added two pen- 
alties before Gloucester were 
able to respond with an equally 
good try by Taylor — Mogg's 
pass, as be was tackled, playing a 
decisive role. This was con- 
vened by Mansell before Turner 
closed the half with another 
penalty. 

The six-minute delay in the 
second half while Hannaford 
was being attended to. stopped 
the momentum for a while, only 
for both teams to recover it in 
the final quarter. Turner kicked 
two penalties and a drop goal for 
the home team and Batten 
landed his second try. Glouces- 
ter for their own part scored two 
marveflous tries. The first came 
from a long, continuous han- 
dling movement with Hamlin 
finally carving through a spread- 
eagled Newport defence: The 
other came from a counter- 
attack deep within their own 
half with Breeze taking a scissors 
pass from Mansell on the half- 


way tine and running dear. 
Mansell converted both these as 
well as kicking his side's penalty.

Sale's home Northern Merit 
victory against West Hartlepool 
by four goals, a try and a penalty 
to a goal two tries and three 
penalties was notable for two 
reasons, one meteorological 
one personal. 

It was played during the 
winter’s first foul weather, 
including a period of driving 
rain, and this militated against 
precise handling; also those 
present had the privilege of 
watching what must surely 
emerge as one of the richest 
talents in the English game. 

Steve Hackney represented 
England 19 Group on the wing 
only last season and the step-up 


the admirable Benjamin and 
Jenion, which he converted, 
opened a 31-13 lead. Close to 
the final whistle Evans scored a 
try for West, for Stabler to 
convert and, as folks edged 
toward the clubhouse, lew 
thought that the best rugby of 
the game was still to come, 
butHackney's swerve; speed and 
side-step carried him from his 
own 22 to a memorable try.

entire first half to settle, ran om 
dear winners by 29-9 against 
their local rivals. Stevnut’s- 
Md rifle. The viritors had to 
make several changes before the 
game and the first period was 
notable only for the amount of 
aimless kicking by both sides 
and a well-taken try by Debusk. 

The other points came from a 
MacGregor penalty and 
dropped goaL Andrew Scot 
kicked all three StewarTs-Mel- 
viile penalties. In the second 
half the Boroughmuir forwards 
warmed to their task and consis- 
tently drove at the opposition 
with great effect. 

MacGregor stretched the lead 
with his second penalty and, 
shortly afterwards, sold a seat 
double dummy to sail in for a 
uy under the posts, which he 
also converted. MacGregor re- 
peated the move later to send

when Goudie left the field with 
ten min ut es to go, they were left 
short-handed. 

In the other all-Edinburgh 
duel Academicals beat Heriot's 
FP by 24-12, a margin which 
would have been considerably 
wider had the home side pos- 
sessed a reliable goal-kicker. 

Hutchison opened the scoring 
for Academicals with a penalty 
and Dun seized on a loose ball 
behind the Heriots' tine for a 
simple try. The Academicals' 
full back, MacRae. then charged 
some 40 metres before handing- 
on to Heaney to score. Heriots' 
only reply was two penalties by 
RussdL 

After the restart, a Bnglass try, 
converted by Rosseit, put Her- 
iois ahead. This spurred the 
home side and a charge upfield 
by Munro and Adamson re- 
sulted in a scrum from which 
Dim nipped over for his second 
uy. Hartop scored the home 
side's other try. Hutchison con- 
verted and kicked a late penalty. 

Although winning an 
overwhelming amount of pos- 
session from their forwards, the 
West of Scnrtand backs were 
unable to create a geing 


the fiendish tackling of the 
lightweight Watsoaians ride. 

Watsonians took the lead 
with a neat Forbes dropped l 
and Gavin Hastings stretcc 
that advantage with two pen- 
alties. Seven minutes into the 
second half Forbes looped Ken- 
nedy for a try and in the dying 
minutes Gavin Hasting kicked 
his third penalty for victory over 
a dejected West side, who could 
only manage a penalty each 
from Barrett and Drummond. 

Melrose could not contain a 
rampant Hawick eight and fell 
by 16-3. Melrose opened the 
scoring with a Ftannigan penalty 
but then the visitors’ back row 
of Hogarth. McGaugbey and 
Turnbull took charge; Hawick 
were awarded a penalty try. and 
McGaughey touched down at a 
pushover. Gass converted the 
first and also added two 
penalties.

With a single exception the 
Oxford University tackling was 
attentive and thorough at Rich- 
mond on Saturday. The excep- 
tion cost them the match, which 
Richmond won by two tries and 
a penalty goal to a goal and a 
penalty. 

Ten minutes from the end, 
with Oxford leading 9-7, 
Pennock, the Richmond right 
wing escaped from lan Me-* 
Donald, his marker, and made 
for the Oxford tine — more in 
hope than expectation because it 
was 50 metres distant and there 
were half a dozen Oxford play- 
ers between him and his objec- 
tive. He went past them all to 
score a cry to dine out on all 
season. 

Oxford scarcely deserved to 
lose: They lost the Imeouts by a' 
huge margin and in the tight 
scrums conceded five heels 
against the head. But they 
balanced these shortcomings 
with fiery driving in the loose 
and nimble touches by the back 
division which hinted at even 
better things when Multin re- 
turns from was training with the 
Ireland squad and Johnson, the 
stand-off haff recovers from a 
dead leg. 

There were nine Blues in the 
Oxford team and the word is 
that they have good cover for 
most positions, including David 
Thresher, a lock, brother of the 
Harlequins full back. AH this, 
plus the arrival of experienced 
Multin and Cal era ft. the Austra- 
lian flanker, suggest unusual 
strength in depth. 

The game was played at a 
hectic pace with much careless 
passing. But all the tries were 
pleasing. Ailum scored Rich- 
mond's first from neat combina- 
tion between Hampel and his 
centres. Risman sold a dummy 
on half-way and Kennedy came 
into the line to release Duthie 
for Oxford's try.

was Sale's recent acquisition,

Higgin makes amends 
with late dropped goal

*A 0UB. 

Referes C Debet (Totflouse). 


Vale of Lone continued their 
triumphant progress on Sat- 
urday at Roandbay. where they 
won 15-1 2. but the losers scored 
the game’s only try and it 
needed a dropped goal in injury 
lime to poach Vale’s victory in a 
John Smith's Merit table C 
match. That success leaves Vale 
alongside Metropolitan Police 
and Fylde (who have only 
played one game) as the only 
teams with a 100 per cent 
record. 

Roundhay, deadly on the 
counter despite the rain and 
gale-force wind, led when 
Lineham scored from a charged- 
down kick by Higgin, and 
Brown, who kicked their two 
penalties, converted. Four pen- 
alties from Higgin, doubtless 
eager to make amends, ensured 
the scores were level well into 
injury time but his vita! dropped 
goal, his ninth oftheseason, was 
all the more remarkable in that 
it was kicked with bis left, and 
unfavoured. fooL 

OrrelL trailing 10-6 at Etfee 
Hall Road, produced a forceful 

performance in the second half 
to earn a convincing 37-16 


victory as Gosfarth, badly dis- 
rupted by injury, tired visibly. 
Among OrrelTs second-half 
scorers, Caiieton, enjoying his 
new career as a centre, and 
Ain sco ugh, who provided one of 
the few touches of dass in a dour 
midweek county match, both 
contributed a couple of tries. 

Durham City are one of the 
most improved teams m the 
north. They duly registered a 
good win at Broughton Parle 22- 
TZ after leading 10-3 at half- 
time through a pushover try and 
two penalties by Bland. Park 
dominated the game's third 
quarter but bad only two further 
penalties from O'Brien, the 
former Irish international full 
back, to show for h. That carried 
Park to within a point of the 
visitors but tries by Smith and 
Kircup, both of which Bland 
converted, guaranteed 
Durham’s victory. 

The game's outstanding 
player was Bob Anderson. 
Durham's veteran flanker. He 
was a doubtful starter for the 
match and had he not played, 
the result might well have been 
reversed.

RACING 


Dancing Brave 
in fine shape 
to lead British 
raiding party 


By Michael Seely 


Dancing Brave, champion 
racehorse of Europe and the 
spearhead of Britain’s power- 
ful raiding party for the S10 
million Breeders 7 Cup day at 
Santa Anita on November 1, 
wotted in good style at 
Pulborough yesterday morn- 
ing and is to be flown to the 
United States on Friday. 

“He's in tremendons 
shape,” said Geoff Lawson, 
Guy Harwood's brother-in- 
law. “Dancing Brave will gal- 
lop again on Tuesday and 
Thursday and will also have a 
couple of work-outs in Santa 
Anita before the big day." 

A lust for California gold, 
1986 style, seems to be 
consuming all the top Euro 
pean trainers. Both Patrick 
Bianco ne and Jim Bolger axe 
now going prospecting in 
“them thar hills” with Trip- 
tych and Park Express, who 
finished first and third respec- 
tively in Saturday’s Dubai 
Champion Stakes. 

Neither man has yet de- 
cided whether to take on 
Dancing Brave in the $2 
million mile-and-a-half event 
on turf or go for the S3 minion 
Breeders’ Cup Classic, which 
is run over 10 furlongs on dirt. 
“We’ll only go for the grass 
race if the ground is soft,” said 
Biancone. 

Previously placed in six 
consecutive group one races. 
Triptych was predictably go- 
ing to pm her act together one 
day. And on Saturday, in the 


hands of Tony Cruz, five 
times champion jockey of 
Hong Kong, she showed 
outstanding acceleration to 
sprint clear of her field. 

Although tiring at the finish, 
she held on to beat Celestial 
Storm by three-quarters of a 
length with Ray Cochrane's 
objection to the winner being 
quickly overruled. Celestial 
Storm stays in training and 
will go for the top middle 
distance races next season. 
Luca Curaani also confirmed 
that Then Again runs in the 
Breeders’ Cup Mile. 

After Untold had finished 
sixth in the Champion, Mi- 
chael Stoute announced that 
Shahrastani would now be 
retired to stud in Kentucky 
and would there fore not be 
meeting Dancing Brave for the 
fourth time in California. “It’s 
a long way to take him and 
Santa Anita’s a pretty tight 
track," he said. 

Sonic Lady, however, after 
an impressive Saturday work- 
out, remains on target for the 
Breeders’ Cup Mile. A de- 
cision about Green Desert will 
be taken today. 

Sure Blade, after drifting in 
the market from 9-4 to 100-30, 
foiled to act in the soft ground 
and came in eighth. “He’s 
come home in good shape;” 
said John Hills, the trainer’s 
son. “He's only lost about 81b 
and if he keeps well well go for 
foe Carieton F Burke Handi- 



Bien Dorado for treble 


Scarlet Blade fends off Bashayor (Na2) azxd Flood Mali: (hidden) to win Newmarket's Houghton Stakes 


cap at Santa .Anita two days 
after the Breeders’ Cup." 

Asteroid Field is to be 
aimed at the $400,000 Yellow 
Ribbon Stakes on the Sunday 
in California and Rejuvenate, 
foe stable's winner of the Park 
Hill Stakes, runs in foe Prix 
Royal Oak (French St Leger) 
next Sunday. 

The overnight changed 
ground was also responsible 
for a turn-up in the Tote 
Cesarewitch. Sneak Preview 
was unable to cope with foe 
conditions and finished un- 
placed behind Orange HilL 

Ridden by Richard Fox, 
Orange Hill was repeating the 
1 976 success of John Cherry in 
the race for Jeremy Tree, who 
owns and who bred foe winner 
in partnership with Bob 
McCneery. 

Henry Cecil completed a 
double with Scarlet Blade and 
Gwydion, who is now a 
possible for foe Breeders’ Cup 
Sprint after landing odds of 
11-8 on in foe Bentinck 
Stakes. 


Overseas raring, page 38 


By Mandarin 

Ben Hanbary, who has aa excellent 

success nrte with his runaers north of foe 

border, can hunch another saaxssfid 
Scottish raid today when I expect BIEN 
DORADO and MEYAGiSSEY to win 
the last two races at Hamilton Park. 

Only last Tuesday at Ayr, F o urth 
Tudor and Bien Dorado provided the 
Newmarket trainer with a doable. Now 
the latter is napped to complete aa 
October treble in the Symington 
Handicap. 

Since opening his account at Haydock 
Park 17 days ago, Bien Dorado has been 
raised 161b by the hand w ap per and this 
race re p resent s one of his best chances to 
nm off his old mark. 

Strictly on a point of h an dica pping. 
Bien Dorado shook! not confirm Ayr 
form with StHy Boy. who finished Chant 
and is now 71b better off for a two-length 
defeat. However, the half-length warning 
margin (fid not reflect Bien Dorado's 
sup er i o ri ty over his field on that occa- 
sion. 

He should again have the measme of 
SHly Boy and has shown fiffiriwr 
improvement in the last month to suggest 
he can reverse Nottingham September 
form with Actualizations. 

Mevagissey also ran at Ayr last 
Tuesday and. considering it was the first 


nee «f hhr fife, the Julio Mariner colt 

produced a fine effort to divide Picea and 
Rssini Rriatam. He sbonM confirm 
that form with the latter in Che Abington 
Maiden Stakes. 

VALENTINE SONG, seventh to 
Gold Fee on her debar me Newmarket 
earlier this month, can ftdfil that promise 
by beating Lady's Mantle in the opening 
Munkotnm Maiden Stakes. However, 
the latter's trainer, John Dunlop, should 
not l eave wifhoot a winner as ANGEL 
CTTY has outstanding claims In the 
Thaabmoq Auction Stakes. 

The Anadd trainer shook! also be on 
foe ant at ijiwnw with DOMINO 
FIRE (4.15) and BRONZEWING 
(4L45L The Utter’s debat third behind 
Schnifarra and Chorion at Goodwood 
appeared a sound effort at the time bat 
looks eves better now as that pair have 
since won three races between them. 

My other principal fiuncy at the 
Midlands track is WAAJIB, who did 
weB to B"kii seventh from a had draw in 
foe Cambridgeshire and is weighted to 
confirm the form with Chief Pal (tenth) 
la the Hedgehog Stakes. 

With aa eye to the future, the 
Whitsbmy Manor Stakes should prove 
tiie most informative rare at Chepstow. 
In what looks a particularly competitive 
contest, my vote goes to Gay Harwood’s 
e fc vre Newcastle wi n ner. ZARBYEV.

Partnership 
starts well 

By Christopher Gonklisg 

David Nicholson and his new 
stable jockey, Richard 
Dun woody, were in cracking 
form at Stratford on Saturday 
when they teamed up to com- 
plete a four-timer with Long 
Engagement Rouspeier, Little 
Sloop and Sicilian Passage. “1 
was delighted for Richard. It 
was a great way to start a new 
season and a partnership." 
Nicholson said. 

Britain will no longer have a 
representative in the Breeden 
Cup Chase next month. Nichol- 
son had hoped to get Very 
Promising ready but now feds u 
will come too soon and be will 
go instead for the Mackeson 
Gold Cup. Charcoal Wally wall 
also miss the race and runs next 
in the H & J Walker Goddess 
Chase at AscoL 

Everett again showed his lik- 
ing for Kempton Park on Sat- 
urday when he won foe 
Charisma Gold Chase for foe 
thud successive year. Fulke 
Walwyn, his astute trainer, said: 
“He has always had trouble with 
his back. We might let him run 
in the Hennessy again.” 

Ginger McCain made a 
triumphant return to Kempton 
after a 10-year absence— his last 
runner on the course was Red 
Rum. McCain saddled 
Honeygrove Banker to win foe 
Captain Quist Hurdle and 
saidTHe’s the best Tve trained 
since the old horee." 

Geordie Dun celebrated his 
28fo birthday by riding three 
winners — Northern River, 
Biras Creek and Valiant Wood 
- at Kelso. By The Way, foe 
winner of foe 1985 Whitbread 
Gold Cup, made a winning 
seasonal debut in foe Anthony 
Marshall Chase on foe Scottish 
course.

i ■ ig^ y the chairrnan n f Tottenham had second thoughts about joining the team that have yet to win their spurs 

Ine one-man management committee 


$Sr ' '• m 



Scholar will not be gapwi 

w OO 


By Stuart Jones 
Football Correspoodeot 

Irving Scholar, the chairman of 
Tottenham Hotspur, yestmlay ex- 
plained to The Times why he 
declined to stand for election to the 
Football League's management 
committee. He had been the 
outstanding favourite to fill the 
vacancy left by John Smith, Luton 
Town's secretary, who resigned 10 
days ago. 

"Last May, when ! was nomi- 
nated for the new committee, 1 
thought that it might bring in a new 
dawn," he said. “I thought that it 
would have something to offer. 
Now that I have seen the way that it 
has gelled over the last five months, 

I feel that the timing is not right." 

Scholar almost joined the re- 
formed team. In the May election he 
finished fourth behind Philip Car- 
ter, the League president. Smith and 
Ken Bales. Before the subsequent 
play-off against Bert McGee he was 
promised 16 votes by his first 
division colleagues. Six changed 
allegiance and he lost 12-10. 

Smith's position was far from 


dear, anyway. Cynics on Mersey- 
side have suggested that the voters. 
Who received a list rrm taTning 
merely the name J. Smith, assumed 
that the candidate was the chairman 
of Liverpool and of the Sports 
Council rather than the repre- 
sentative from Luton. 

Their view is supported by the 
number of congratulations that 
were mistakenly sent to a bemused 
Smith at Anfiela. He was not among 
the choices. Luton's Smith, agree- 
ably surprised by his success, soon 
discovered that he was "out of 
tune" with the other members of the 
committee. 

Hie policy men who 
are without power 

It includes four directors from the 
first division, three from the second 
(Ron Noades, of Crystal Palace, Bill 
Fox, of Blackburn Rovers, and Ian 
Stott, of Oldham Athletic) and one 
from the third and fourth (Jack 
Dunnett, of Notts County). 

Collectively, they makp policies 
but have no power. Individually, 


West Ham expose the 
chinks as Norwich 
are held by Goddard 


they tange from the eccentric 
(Bates's idea of controlling hooli- 
gans was to construct an electric 
fence around the perimeter at 
Stamford Bridge) to being so mod- 
erate as to be weak. It is a curious 
mixture that is spiced with strong 
political overtones. 

Scholar feels that "there are more 
politicians in football than there are 
in the House of Commons." Carter, 
for instance, happens to be the 
chairman of the Conservative Parry 
in Liverpool. He, for one, would 
have welcomed the support of 
Scholar, who believes that he would 
have been in the minority. 

Once the votes have been taken 
on a contentious proposal, such as 
the banning of away supporters at 
Kenilworth Road, the members of 
the committee must either accept 
the decision, even if privately they 
disagree with it, or resign, as in 
Smith's case. A public voice of 
discontent leads to unacceptable 
discord. 

Rather than being gagged. Scholar 
would clearly prefer to be free to 
speak. Rather than being bound by 
internal wrangtings, he would prefer 


to spend his time (committee 
meetings take up two days a week 
on average) on the topics that he 
thinks are of greater importance 
within his own club. 

He points out that Watford, who 
opened their new stand at Vicarage 
Road on Saturday, work outside the 
committee and rave set an example 
for the rest of the country. He is 
aiming to bring a similarly warm 
and amicable atmosphere back to 
the terraces of White Hart Lane. 

A game that should 
be a famUy affair 

“I have a cutting on the wall of 
my office," he said. "I look at the 
headline every day. It says 'Football 
is a family affair’ , which of course h 
should be. We are trying to make it 
that at Tottenham, to encourage the 
youngsters and to cut out the foulr

the near 23.000 would have 
wagered against them return- 
ing there this season. It was 
one of football's quirks that, 
after a game so rich in quality, 
both teams should find them- 
selves lower down the table 
than they were before lock-off. 

Norwich dropped from first 
to second, and West Ham 
from fourth to fifth but, as the 
London club's manager, John 
Lyall, said: "Thai was the way 
we would like to see the game 
played." Coming from one 
who bases his football philos- 
ophy on panache, it was praise 
indeed, and Norwich were as 
deserving of it as LyalTs own 
team. 

After Norwich had gained 
the championship lead the 
previous weekend for only the 
second time in their history, 
Ken Brown, the manager, said 


attacking options, yet caused 
their goalkeeper, Benstead, no 
undue anxiety. 

Crook, who replaced the 
injured Williams in midfield, 
showed that Norwich have 
skill in reserve, while Biggins 
suggested that he deserves to 
share the attacking spotlight 
which tends to dwell on 
Drinkell. Though it was 
Drinkell who put Norwich 
ahead after 58 minutes. 
Biggins was the provider and 
Brown observed: "I thought 
he did exceptionally well." 

The chink in Norwich's 
freshly-groomed first division 
armour — half the team, have 
never played at this level- 
before — has been their lack of 
an outstanding goalscorer. 
Their rivals in the top five 
each have a marksman in 
double figures while Drinkell 


is taking time to adjust from 
the second division, where he 
was top scorer last season, and 
has only five. 

Norwich's strength has been 
in defence; so it is surprising 
that the fin goal they should 
concede in six matches should 
be against a forward, God- 
dard, who was making his first 
full appearance for 1 4 months. 

The equalizer came on 76 
minutes. In Keen, the son of 
the former Queen's Park 
Rangers captain and Watford 
manager. West Ham have 
acquired a skilful left sided 
midfield player who is wilting 
to run at defences. From one 
such run he fed Gale, whose 
cross was headed forward by 
Hilton, and Goddard added 
the touch off Barham's shoul- 
der. Thus West Ham, like 
their opponents, extended to 
eight matches their unbeaten 
sequence in League and Cup.

Manchester City 1 

There are two good reasons 
for believing that Manches t er 
City are the worst team in the 
first division. The first is ob- 
vious enough: they are bottom 
of the table. The second is that 
they are the only team Chelsea 
can beat 

Not since last March — the 
last time City came to Stamford 
Bridge — had the Londoners 
managed a home IffWgW- Win. 
For a long time, though, it 
looked unlikely that Chelsea 
would repeat the feat as they 
conceded an early goal and then 


struggled to find any kind of not make Chelsea’s task easy. 


rhythm. 

But the introduction of Haz- 
ard midway through the second- 
half changed everything. In the 
77th minute he equalized with a 
glorious swerving shot from 25 
yards and, two minutes later, 
chipped a ball forward which 
Dixon nodded neatly back 
across the six-yard box for 
Bumstead to dive forward and 
head the winner. 

Suddenly. Chelsea, if not 
quite swinging, were at least 
“with it” as their manager, John 
Hollins, pul it later. In particu- 
lar. Nevin began to look as if he 
could be the long-term replace- 
ment needed feu- the transfer- 


The pace of the youthful White 
was always unsettling to the 
plodding Roogvie and Varadi, 
too, gave encouraging signs. He 
marked his debut — having been 
transferred _ from West

with a goal m the seventh 
minute, turning past Pates and 
scoring with a shot that was 
deflected in off McLaughlin. In

crucial moments.

Theories

Tottenham Hotspur 1 

Sheffield Wednesday « 1 

The prospect of a home 
fixture against Coventry City 
would not usually pierce the 
daydreams of a manager, 
particularly if he is in charge of 
Tottenham Hotspur. Yet David 
Pleat is already wondering aloud 
about the game at While Han 
Lane on November IS. 

His audible misgivings are 
not wrapped around the oppo- 
sition. He is concerned about 
the preparations of his own side. 
There will not be any. He knows 
that much from bis experiences 
last week when eight of his 
players were away on inter- 
national duly. Absenteeism is 
likely to be as rife next month. 
As he finds his way around his 
new dub. Pleat admits that he 
needs time to complete his 
designs and to put theory into 
practice on the training pitch. 

There were bursts of inspira- 
tion, as though Tottenham-had 
adjusted to the problem, but 
Pleat admitted that “we .didn’t 
maintain our standards for any 
length of time". When they did, 
Hodge was equal to them. One 
save, from Waddle, was de- 
scribed justifiably by Wilkinson 
as “international class". 

Wednesday's manager mut- 
tered that he has tot of 
players" whose talents are 
under-rated. He did not men- 
tion them byname but they had 
already spoken eloquently 
enough for themselves. 

Marwood overshadowed the 
performance of Waddle on the 
same flank, Shelton and Megson 
were, as Pleat conceded, “bigger 
engines" than Hoddle and Rob- 
erts in midfield and Walker, an 
18 -year-old, made a promising 
debut in attack. But, after 
recovering from Clive Allen's 
strike and equalizing through 
Megson, it was Wednesday who 
finished the more likely 
winners.

• Tottenham Hotspur’s game 
with Gletuoran at the OvaL 
Belfast, sche d uled for tomorrow 
night, has been cancelled be- 
cause of an excessive demand by 

the players of the Irish League 
club and uncertainty over the 
electricity supply. 


allegations that morale and 
relationships within the team 
were bad after the “training 
accident" which left Olsen with 
a severe eye injury after a clash 
with Moses. 

Relationships between the 
Manchester press and Atkinson 
have certainly deteriorated to 
the point where last Friday be 
walked out on them at a press 
conference and then on Sat- 
urday they walked out on him 
after waiting more than an hour 
for him to emerge from the 
changing rooms. 

A more poignant walk-out 
was that by sections of the 
39,000 crowd several minutes 
before the finish. Whether it was 
a gesture of displeasure or 
merely to avoid the rush (me 
cannot be sure. But unquestion- 
ably there was little to encourage 
them to stay other than to 
witness a deserved equalizer by 
Luton. 

Not even Old TraffoixTs 
grand setting could lift this game 
out of the ordinary. Had it been 
held in a local park along with 
half a dozen other games 1 dare 
say it would have passed un- 
noticed. And that is about the 
most damning thing one can say 
about Manchester United. 

The United crowd know 
entertainment when they see h 
and were not footed by United's 
early goal which owed itself to 
an involuntary contribution 
from one of their old boys. 
Grimes muffed a back pass and 
Davenport seized on the error to 
draw the goalkeeper before giv- 
ing Stapleton the opportunity to 
over-indulge himself by lashing 
the ball into the feebly guarded 
net. 

The worshipping thousands, 
as ever, were desperate to 
applaud somebody or some- 
thing and the ego of Barnes 
feeding on early success, at least 
went some ofthe way to meeting 
that demand. That United 
should have lo depend so 
heavily upon such a fitful 
character made nonsense of 
their championship aspiratioo. 

Neverthdess Barnes turned 
the clock back for us even if it 
was only the minute hand, his 
twitching, feinting runs causing 
Luton's defenders to commit 
themselves embarrassingly or in 
one incident to admit defeat 
totally by cynically pulling him 
down. 

In the 66 th minute a tentative 
up-field ball by Foster gave 
Mark Stein the opportunity to 
expose United's soft cenbe, 
McGrath eventually bringing 
him down. But brother Brian, 
returning after a two-match 
suspension, drove the penalty 
disappointingly wkk;

j>owling 
jrins by 
following 
v orders 


T ' From John Henaessy 
La Manga 


Debbie Dowling, a Surrey 


golfer in her sixth year as a 
professional, was due to arrive 
here at an unearthly hour this 
morning with her eyes set on 
two objectives. Not only is a 
first prize of £3.750 awaiting the 
winner of the La Manga club 


Spanish Open, but her victory in 
‘ ting Classii 


the Laing Classic at Stoke Poges 
at the weekend has launched her 
into a challenging position, 
among a dutch of others, for the 
£2,000 bonus offered by the 
sponsors. Ring and Brymer. for 
the player who finishes third in 
the Women's Professional Golf 
Association order of merit. 


The first two places, carrying 
* 5.000 and £3.000. 


prizes of £5 
have already been claimed by 
Lotta Neumann, of Sweden, and 
Laura Davies, the new British 
open champion, although not 
necessarily in that order. 

* Miss Dowling reached this 
situation by responding bril- 
liantly. in her quiet combative 
manner, to the challenge thrown 
down by her caddie as the Stoke 
Poges tournament came to its 
dimax on Saturday. "You need 
a three here." he said, as they 
were playing the 389 yards. 1 7th 
hole, nominally a par live but 
within easy reach downhill. She 
look only an eight-iron for her 
second, struck it to 15 feet and 
obediently holed the putt for her 
second victory of the season. 

The caddie had correctly 
judged that two birdies, includ- 
ing a three at the parallel, par 
four. 18th (370 yards uphill), 
was a more difficult prospect, 
and so it proved. A four there 
was all Miss Dowling needed to 
go one shot ahead of Corinne 
Dibnah. of Australia, who had 
signed off with a five.

HORSE TRIALS 


Green leads 


British to 
second place 


From a Special 
Correspondent Boebelo 

Lucinda Green duly won the 
Dutch championship three-day 
event on Sbannagh when she 
was faultless over both die 
cross-country and showjumping 
courses, finishing 8.8 penalties 
ahead of Piotr Piasecki. or 
Poland, on Vardim. 

At a time when the sport is 
under increasing pressure from 
those who think that it is 
becoming too severe upon the 
horses, it was a relief to find a 
cross-country course which did 
not cause a lot of trouble, yet 


which quite clearly gave the 


riders a lot to mull over. 

Whether Mrs Green should 
have competed with Shannagh 
in three major events this year is 
something else that must be 
considered, as there seems to be 
an increasing trend to appear 
whenever (here is a chance. 

The British team finally fin- 
ished second behind the French, 
whose leading three riders filled 
the founh to sixth places.

Schulte deties England 
until weather gives 
Queensland some hope 


From a Special Correspondent Banda berg 


England lost two hours 40 
minutes to the weather on the 
second day of their opening 
game at Bund a berg yesterday, 
and after cutting down the 
Queensland Country XI to 36 
for four by means of two 
shooters and a run out were 
held up by their captain. 
Schulte. On a pitch slower 
than on Saturday, and offering 
the spinners no more than 
modest turn, Schulte batted 


capably before accepting the 
umpires' second offer of " 


bad 


light 10 minutes from the 
close. 

At 149 for six. the Country 
XI have little chance of adding 
193 to save the follow on; but 
Queensland's spring rains 
have come unseasonably late, 
and with further storms last 
night, may well upset 
Gatting's hopes of starting 
with a win. 

Diltey bowled some sharp 
overs to take a wicket in each 
spell. But the combination of a 
stiff northerly, and the habit of 
receut England touring teams 
of paying scant regard to 
where bowlers' front feet land 
in nets, led to his being no- 
balled 16 times in 1 1 overs for 
over-stepping. When 
DeFreitas had a spell down- 
wind. he too made the bats- 
men hurry. Botham bowled 
within himself, but produced 
one very good late ouiswinger. 
wed played by Williams, in his 
new-bad spell upwind. 

Any chance of a full six 
hours vanished in a 20-minute 


down pour which left the 
ground waterlogged two hours 
before the scheduled start. 
Galling. who had intended to 
bat on. abandoned the idea 
only when he was satisfied his 
fest bowlers would have no 
trouble with their run-ups. 

London, on the back foot 
was soon left without a stroke 
by a ball from Botham that hit 
him ankle high. Williams 
nibbled at an outswinger from 
Oidey. and the elder Scuderi 
fatally charged a second run to 
DeFreitas at square leg. From 
55 yards his throw thudded 
into French’s glove right 
above the slumps. When 
Monaghan fell victim to a 
second shooter. England 
looked to have an opening to 
enforce the follow on before 
the close. 

But with Schulte hitting 
Emburey with the spin and the 
younger Scuderi. aged 17, 
driving freely, the fifth wicket 
added 71 at one a minute. 
Edmonds broke the stand 
when Scuderi pulled him hard 
to deep mid-wicket and Teys, 
apprehensive against Dtlley. 
lobbed a lifter to the finer of 
his gulleys. But the 29-year- 
old Schulte, a former Queens- 
land Colt confidently lofting 
drives into space behind the 
spinners, baited on with 
increasing certainty to reach 
73 in 2% hours when bad light 
ended play. 

Yesterday's weather was a 
disappointment after Sat- 
urday's efforts, when the 


partnership of 160 between 
Broad and Slack was dwarfed 
by the 235 Gatting and Athey 
added in 140 minutes for the 
fourth wickeL Until he mis- 
laid his liming against the 
medium pacers. Broad had 
played faultlessly, but Slack, 
outscored for an hour, went on 
to display the greater range of 
stroke. 

Athey played immaculately 
at his own pace, hooking welt 
and in no way disconcerted at 
being overshadowed, first by 
Gatting and then, for the find 
seven overs. Botham, who 
smoothly smote 50 off 25 
deliveries.

Border and Jones thwart 
India’s spin bowlers 


From Richard Streeton, Bombay 


Allan Border and Dean Jones 
batted through the final three 
hours 20 minutes together 10 
thwart the Indian spinners in 
the third Test match here yes- 
terday. Australia, who were 172 
runs behind on the first innings, 
cleared their deficit shortly be- 
fore tea and the match finished 
on a subdued note. 

The culprit was a pitch which, 
contrary to whai was forecast by 
the groundsman, became tamer 
as the game progressed. The ball 
always turned but only slowly. 
Australia's opening pair were 
the only batsmen to be dis- 
missed on the final two days. 

At a' time when Indian admin- 
istrators were desperately anx- 
ious for the traditional charisma 
ofTest matches to be restored, h 
was a disappointing finish to a 
series which left the teams level. 
None of the expectation raised 
by the tied first Test in Madras 
was fulfilled with the draw here. 

A minor curiosity at the end 
came when the two captains 
agreed to call off the match with 
40 minutes remaining and only 
four of the mandatory last 20 
overs bowled. The players 
walked off as the refreshment 
trolley for a drinks break was 
being pushed on to the field. 

The umpires took theirdrinks 
alone ana then gesticulated 
towards the dressing-room, 
dearly disproving of the 
captains’ unilateral action. An 


Indian board official joined 
them and there was a long 
discussion before the umpires 
reluctantly walked off and an 
announcement was made that 
the match had been halted. 

There was some tense cricket 
early on when Shastri dismissed 
Marsh and Boon in 10 balls. 
Marsh was bowled behind his 
legs as he pushed forward: Boon 
was caught behind as he tried to 
square cuL Australia were mo- 
mentarily in danger. All the 
hard work and team unity 
forged on the tour would have 
gone for nought had Australia 
subsided at this point They 
would have returned to meet 
England with their confidence 
smashed to smithereens. 

Border, that seasoned battler, 
and Jones, standard-bearer for 
the new generation, made sure 
the possible crisis was avoided. 
Both batsmen, and Jones in 
particular, had moments of 
uncertainty as the Indian spin- 
ners were switched about with 
seldom less than five close 
fieldsmen perched in atten- 
dance, and often more. 

After lunch though the bats- 
men grew more and more 
confident with Border sweeping 


one stroke erased Australia’s 
arrears, made the stand worth 
100 and took Border past his 
own fifty. The rest was 
academic. 

Vengsarkar batted with 
impressive grace and style on 
Saturday as be and Shastri 
stayed together until India de- 
clared with nine overs left Their 
unfinished stand of 298 for the 
sixth wicket was an Indian 
record against any country. 
Shastri had long periods of 


inactivity, interspersed with 


bouts of hitting. Both teams, in 
fact, scored loo slowly in their 
first innings and this did noth- 
ing to help them achieve a 
positive result. 


• Sunil Gavaskar was presented 
with a £6.000 silver salver, its 
inscription encrusted in di- 
amonds. on Saturday night by 
the Indian Cricket Board. The 
gift was to mark Gavaskar's 
world record number of Test 
centuries, which now stands at 
33. Vengsarkar was given a less 
resplendent salver to com- 
memorate the three Test hun- 
dreds he has scored ax Lord’s.

Rawalpindi (Reuter) — The 
West Indians took advantage of 
missed chances by the Pakistan 
President's XI and made 208 for 
five on the curtailed opening 
day of their three-day match 
here yesterday. The start was 
delayed by more than an hour 
because the pitch was still wet 
after rain on Thursday night 
Richardson (67) and Gomes 
(66). who shared a second- 
wicket partnership of 1 13. both 
benefited from fielding lapses as 
the West Indians recovered 
from the early loss ofGreenidge. 
Later Richards scored an un- 
beaten 40. including six fours.

Indoor success: Becka- after bis victory over Lendl 


Lendl overpowered 


Sydney (Reuter) — Boris 
Becker, the Wimbledon cham- 
pion, dropped the first set but 
came back to overpower Ivan 
Lendl 3-6, 7-6. 6-2, 6-0 in die 
final of the Australian indoor 
tennis championship here 
yesterday. 

The West German, aged 18, 
blunted Lendl's firepower with 
his rifle-like serve and powerful 
ground strokes to dose out the 
match in two hours 27 minutes. 
Becker humiliated Lendl in the 
final set, breaking ibe top seed 
and defending champion in the 
first, third and fifth games to 
race to a 5-0 lead. For Becker, 
the second seed, it was the 
founh grand prix tournament 
success of the year. 

Becker has now beaten Lendl 
on three of the four occasions 
they have met this year. His 
other wins were in the final of 
the Chicago event in March and 
at Wimbledon in July. The 
pair's head-to-head record now 
stands at 5-3 in favour of LendL 

Becker needed four match 
points to secure the win as Lendl 
tried valiantly to stay in the 
match. What was significant 
about yesterday’s victory was 
that it came on pJexipave, a hard 
court surface that particularly 
suits Lendl’s game. “Lendl is 
still No. 1. but Tm getting closer 
and closer," Becker said after his 
emphatic triumph. Consistency 


is what Becker believes stands 
between him and the top rooL 
"Ivan seems to reach a final 
almost every week." he said. 
“Playing the good players brings 
out the best in me. but I still 
sometimes have trouble with 
the notrso-good players." • 

Lendl has won four grand prix 
tournaments this year against 
Becker's four. Lendl said he did 
not feel non-Grand Siam events 
bad much importance asbe was 
No.l . "It’s not a disaster to lose 
to Boris. It’s just another day. 
another match," he said after 
only his fifth loss of the year. 

The next Grand Slam tour- 
nament is the Australian Open 
at Kooyong in Melbourne in 
January next year.

Inflating reputations 
in the Bath bubbles 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Comspoodent 


But for two Bath bubbles, 
yesterday's finals of the British 
Home Stores national parks 
champions hips woold not have 
finished. A month ago, ftmr 
courts were boosed under two 
synthetic babbles in Royal Vic- 
toria Park, Bath, and con- 
sequently, the last two days of 
this nation-wide tournament — 
one winner came from Glasgow, 
another from Exeter — were 
locked away from the prevailing 
wind and rain. 

The environment mind yon, 
was unosaaL Trees hemm ing in 
the transparent bobbles looked 
Like pictures on tbe walls. There 
was little room for spectators 
while umpires had to scramble 
to improvised perches on top of 
the airtight, revolving, doors. A0 
this was a bizarre climax to an 
event that originally attracted 
some 4,000 competitors — twice 
as many as the mare dis- 
tinqaished, recently condoled, 
British national championships. 

The parks event was inango- 
rated last year when 16 local 
authorities took part. This year 
the □ amber rose to 28, of which 
17 were represented in 
Saturday's semi-finals of tbe 
seven events, and it is envisaged 
that about 40 will be selling the 


third edition of; what has twnud 
ont to be, the sports promoter's 
version of a best-seller. WeD, 
tennis players have no start 
somewhere and some remark- 
ably good ones have started in 
the parks. Remoober Roger 
Taylor? 


Taylor played his parks ten- 
in Sheffield, a 


ms id snemeM, a dty repre- 
sented in aD three of yesterday's 
doubles finals. Tbe mixed final 
was a repetition of last year’s 
except that, this time, Elaine 
Andrews and David Lazarus 
(Redbridge) won more easily. 
Paul Beu (Exeter), last year’s 
boy's champion ami men’s ran- 
ner-np. beat Lazarws in the

forward success for Miss 
Navratilova against the sup- 
posedly injured Czechoslo- 
vakian player, who has pulled 
out of the Pretty Polly classic at 
Brighton because of a stomach 
strain. 

Miss Mandlikova’s game did 
not seem to suffer, however, as 
she admitted she had been 
outplayed. “I felt pressure from 
her all the time. She attacks your 
first serve, she attacks your 
second serve. So I tried to serve 
too well and hit some double 
faults." she said. 

Miss Mandlikova now plans 
to take a few days off to allow

suffered at Tdfford not having 
healed as well as she had 
expected. Their places in the 
main draw have been taken by

Although Miss Hobbs es- 
caped the qualifying event, her

Leeds humbled by 
Australians’, 
merciless machine 


By Keith Maddin 

The merciless Australians 
continued their awe-inspiring 
preparation for next Saturday’s 
first international at Old 
TrafTord vrith a comprehensive 
40-0 humiliation of Leeds. If the 
Kangaroos wanted to exert 
themselves they might well have 
topped 60. 

Even allowing for the quality 
of the Australians, Leeds were a 
great disappointment, and 


dogs- Oldham scored first when 
Clark, tbe huge Australian for- 
ward, made a gap for Bndge. ms 
countryman in tbe centre. 
Hobbs kicked the goal and for a 
while Oldham played with con- 
fidence: . 

Then a disputed penalty goal 
from Gill was quickly followed 
by a break by Bed, the New 
Zealand centre, which sent in 
Foid for a try. Gill lacked the 
1 and at half-tune Wigan led 


rarely competed. They made the 
" • ' ’ if allowing d 


fetal' mistake of allowing the 
<hre-fiowmg,tourists to ran with 
the ball, and the Australians 
responded by scoring eight tries. 
Two of them came from 
O’Connor, the wing, who also 
kicked four goals. 

The ease with which the 
Australians found gaps in the 
borne defence was- underlined 
when Sterling, tbe halfback, 
made an opening for Dowling, 
the front row forward, to trot 
through a wide gap at his leisure. 

Australia fielded .what was 


In tbe second half Wigan 
showed something like their 
normal form as Oidhain ran out 
of steam, heart and confidence. 
Ford and Roberts were 
outstanding as Edwards ran in 
for two tries, Lydon scored a try 
'and dropped a goal, and Gill 
completed five goals. 

In yesterday’s championship 
matches. Warringtoa main- 
tained their pursuit of St Hel- 
ens. the top .dub who beat 


virtually their ftiil international 
fo 


squad for next Saturday. To- 
morrow night they send their 
second string to [day Cumbria at 
Barrow, and such is the strength 
in depth of these 1986 tourists 
that another comfortable vic- 
tory seems assured. 

At St Helens, Wigan won 
their eighteenth Lancashire Cup 
in 32 finals after an uncertain 
start against Ofdhana, the under- 


; Trinity i 

12-2. but Andy Gregory came 
on- as substitute to inspire the 
Warrington attack, and they 
eventually won 28-18. 

wtdaes. another 

championsip chasing side also 


came from behind, turning an 

~ ' - - - in to a 20-18

victory with a late try from 
Gilbert. In tbe second division, 
Kneon Higbfidd had a fine 
22-4 win over Sheffield Eagles.

CorkilL who earlier in the day 
edged ont tbe world champion, 
Tony Allcock, 3-2 in the semi- 
final, dropped the opening set to 
Baker 7-4. He looked as if he 
would fell further behind when 
he traded Baker 3-5 in tbe 
second. 

But a count of three followed 
by a single allowed Corkill to 
square the match one set all and 
he then turned , in a sparkling 
display in the next two sets. He 
claimed tbe second 7-3 after 
eight ends and then needed just 
four ends more to clinch vic- 
tory, taking the fourth set 7-2. 

Corkill said after his win: “1

Kelly aims to walk tall 


By George Ace 


Dave McAufey puts an un- 
beaten sequence on the line 
against Joe Kelly in Glasgow’s 
Albany Hall tonight with the 
British flyweight title as the 
prize.. ■ 

McAuley, aged 25, from 
Larne in Northern Ireland, is 
the vastly more experienced of 
the two, having won 10 and 
drawn two of his 12 contests; 
including a tenth -round stop- 
page, despite a broken finger, of 
another . Scot, Bobby . 
McDermott, who took only 
three rounds to halt Kelly in 


Kelly, aged 22, who can just 
top five feet standing on tip-toe, 
hails from Glasgow’s Gorbals. 
After a disastrous professional 
debut -against McDermott he 
won his next six contests and 
battled the way one expects of a 
boxer of his stature: noorStop 
attack with fists Railing. 

He.is'jusr the kind of oppo- 
nent McAufey does not want. 
McAuley possesses - firepower 
but tbe wee Scot, may - prove a 
more difficult opponent than 
the records suggest

From OuTlrish Racing Correspondetit,DabIm 


Authaal. all-the-way winner 
of the Irish Si Leger eight days 
ago. will attempt a classic dou- 
ble next Sunday when be goes 
for the French equivalent, the 
Prix Royal Oak. at Longchamp. 

David O’Brien, his trainer, 
confirmed the plan at Naas on 
Saturday after Warsaw Pact, the 
most expensive winner of the 
day, had survived a stewards* 
inquiry to take the Woodlands 
Race. 

Sheikh Mohammed's Danzig 
colt, who cost $350,000, may 


have been a little lucky to hold

keep a straight course. 

The victory ofStirabout in the- 
Newbridge Handicap, Hurdle 
provided the middle leg of a 
treble for Dermot Weld and also 
marked the 100th winner of the 
season for the Omagh trainer. 

The first of the Weld winners 
was Risky Game in the Cotm 
McEvoy Two-year-old Fifties’ 
Race. She is a beautifully bred 
youngster by Troy out of $ wee! 


Mint, who won the Cork and 
Orrery Stakes at Royal Ascot 

The . Wekl treble was com- 
pleted when Sonnet, the top 
weight, beat Maiden . Fair in a 
photo finish , to the Blessmgton 
Handicap. Sonnet will be con- 
signed to ■ the Newmarket 
December safes and that is also 
the ultimate destination for 
Nordtca, who won the following, 
race, the Carna Stakes. 

Nonfica was sent over by Alec 
Stewart to run at the Phoenix 
Park nine, days ago and after 
tailing to get into the money 
there, was left m Ireland for the 
Naas race. It disproved a profit- 
able derision as Nordica earned 
almost £9.000. 

Golden Dome started 


fevourite, despite top weight, i 
Birdcatcher 


the Red Sunset 
Nursery but, after showing 
plenty of speed, weakened up 
the lull to finish a well-beaten 
third behind Native Sal. whose 
win provided the young trainer, 
Robbie Connolly, with his most 
valuable success this season.

England’s final 

ends in 


push 


gallant failure 


By Sydney Frisian 


England 


Australia 



From a match 
that was close 
and exciting 
at the end, 
lAustralia 
emerged 
victorious over England at 
WiUesden yesterdayto win the 
World Cup for the first time in 
their colourful career. They 
were bronze medal winners at 
Bombay four years ago. 

The jubilant Australians, 
would probably want to forget 
those last seven minutes of the 
match when England, with the 
crowd spurring them on. kept 
pushing up as much as they 
could and throwing every- 
thing in attack. The 2-0 lead 
which Australia had estab- 
lished had suddenly been re- 
duced and they were 
struggling to hold their 
advantage. 

How relieved the Austra- 
lians were was reflected in the 
words of their coach, Richard 
Aggiss, who said: “With seven 
minutes to go, we were trying 
to' close up the game. But it 
didn't work, and in the end 
England were running all over 


us. 


England were disappinted at 
not having achieved the ul- 
timate, which was to win the 
World Cup, but there was no 
denying the Australians their 
triumph. They were the most 
exciting side, the enterprising, 
and the most entertaining. 
They had the energy and drive 
to brush most of their oppo- 
nents aside. 

By half time when Australia 
were leading 2-0 they probably 
thought as many others did 
that the game was over, not 
bar gaining for a stirring chal- 
lenge by England who came to 
vibrant life, albeit a little too 
late. Richard Dodds, the cap- 
lain, said: "Australia had won 
most of their earlier games by 


half-time, and when they went 
two ahead against us we knew 
it would be most difficult to 
recover.’ 4 

And so it was after Australia 
had done more of the attack- 
ing in the first period. Within 
five minutes, Taylor in goal 
had saved from Milton, and 
from BestaU at a short corner, 
the scramble that followed 
ending with an unavailing 
appeal by Cbariesworth for 
another short corner. 

England did not have a 
player of the quality of 
Chariesworth who not only 
did his share of the attacking, 
but also kept popping up at the 
most unexpected places to pull 
his colleagues out of trouble. 
He was awarded the prize for 
the player of the tournament, 
and Taylor for the best 

goaleeper. 

Except for Sherwani on the 
left flank, none of the England 
forwards many any inroads 
into Australian territory be- 
fore the interval, the intiative 
remaining with Australia who 
went ahead in the fifth minute 
when Walsh scored from a 
pass by Hawgood- The lead 
was increased in the 24th 
minute when Bestail con- 
vened a short comer. But for 
the timely interception by 
Barber, Hawgood. might have 
put Australia three up at the 
interval an advantage which 
they were desparately seeking. 

Beginning the second half 
with a substitution. Shaw, 
coming in for Leman, England 
made their first spirited sally 
with Kerly going through the 
middle but putting his final

Ballesteros and Langer are 
stranded as night draws in 


From Mitchell Platts, Versailles 


Severiano Ballesteros and 
Bernhard Langer shared the 
Lancome Trophy when bad 
light forced their sudden death 
play-off on the St-Nom-la- 
Breteche course to be curtailed 
after four extra holes. 
Ballesteros and Langer have 
waged many battles during 
their careers but none more 
dramatic than this one. 

The conclusion came when 
both players approached the 
Tournament Director, Tony 
Gray, after putting-out on the 
fourth extra green. 

For Ballesteros it was the 
end of a quite astonishing year 


in Europe. It gave him a sixth 
victory, even if this one was 
shared, and it took his 
winnings for the season to 
more than £240.000. For 
Langer it was a satisfactory 
end to his brief European 
campaign in which his only 
previous win this year was the 
German Open. 

Even so, it was not a 
satisfactory end for the 
championship itself. As the 
skies darkened it became clear 
that the two players would be 
forced to end their conflict, 
which was a pity for the huge 
crowd which had gathered on

the outskirts of Paris to watch 
this absorbing contest unfold. 
The Ballesteros-Langer match 
had finished more than two 
holes behind the one in front 
of them, but with spectators 
swarming along the fairways, 
it was inevitable that there 
would be serious delays. The 
question which had to be 
asked was whether or not play 
had been started early enough 
in the knowledge that dark- 
ness could affect a sudden- 
death finish. 

Langer compiled a 69, com- 
pared to Ballesteros’ 70. to 
elbow his way into a play-off 
Both players finished with 
scores of 274 which is 14 
under par. Yet, after six holes, 
Langer appeared to be trading 
in the Spaniard's slipstream 
with little chance of levelling 
with him. let alone moving 
past. Ballesteros had begun 
the final round with a lead of 
one shot and he increased that 
to four. But the next three 
holes put a different complex- 
ion on matters. A three iron to 
25 feel, from where be holed, 
gave Langer an eagle three at 
the seventh compared to 
Ballesteros's four. Then 
Ballesteros took three putts on 
the next green. Langer, seizing 


his chance, carefully studied a 
of 16 feet on the 


curling putt 
ninth green and to his joy, the 
ball disappeared fora two. 

Ballesteros, now with a 
fragile, one-shot, lead, gave 
himself a cushion again when 
be reached the long 12th with 
two woods for a birdie. 
Langer, however, once again 
reduced his deficit to one with 
a birdie at the 14th. He had a 
dear chance to level at the 
17th but missed from seven 
feet for a birdie. Even so. he 
confidently holed from a simi- 
lar length on the last green to 
ensure a play-off 

Des Smyth, of Ireland, 
stormed out of the pack to 
take third place with a score of 
66 for a total of 275. He 
seemed to have little chance of 
doing so until he chipped in 
from 25 yards for an unlikely 
eagle two at the 14th. He 
salvaged a par from out of a 
bunker at the 15th, then single 
putted each of the last three 
greens to finish with three 
birdies

wards goal only to see Davies 
clear from the line. The 
Australians tended to panic, 
and their captain. Bell was 
given the yellow temporary 
suspension car d for a rough 
charge on Grirnley. While be 
was off he saw his centre- 
forward Walsh seize a chance 
and put a shot over the top. 
Within a minute Sherwani 
returned the compliment 

Then the flames of interest 
were kindled anew as Barber's 
free hit through the middle of 
the field went straight to the 
Australian goalkeeper who 
lost sight of the ball and Potter 
nipped in to score amid a 
deafening roar. The Austra- 
lian defence faltered as En- 
gland kept pressing forward. 

With three minutes to go, 
there was a short corner for 
England, and again Barber 
was sharpening his sword, but 
the Australian centre-half Bir- 
mingham, who had a splendid 
game, was on him in a flash 
and managed to deflect the 
shot. The ensuing scramble 
led to another short comer 
and with the crowd still 
cheering. Baiter raised his 
stick as the hit from the line 
was perfectly stopped. Alas, 
the bail was cast adrift.

Bridesmaids wonder what next 


By David MIHer 


For the second lime in 24 hours, 
England staged a rousing late recovery, 
but in vain. Australia, who have been 
scoring almost as freely as Steve Davis 
all fortnight, were emphatically the 
better team in yesterday's final of the 
sixth World Dip, the first to be played 
in Europe in 13 years. 

England might complain about some 


grains in inner-city areas such as

Council's grant from the Government

In a couple of minutes it 
was all over and the Austra- 
lians hugged one another in 
celebration. Aggiss joyfully 
said: “We thought we bad a 
good team in Los Angeles, but 
this is a better balanced one 
with a couple of younger 
players in it. Unfortunately for 
everyone, we hope to be even 
better in a couple of years' 
time." He was referring, of 
course, to the 1983 Olympic 
Games.

second half — but there was no

They had scored well over four goals a 
game, so England may consider that 
theirs was an achievement in being 
runners-up by only a single goaL 

Though they will be disappointed, 
following the success of their rousing 
semi-final recovery from 2-1 down on 
Saturday against West Germany, the 
Olympic silver medal winners, England 
have marvellously contributed to what, 
in its way, Iras been a minor British 
sporting triumph at WiUesden. 

Some 14 hours of exposure by BBC 
television, highlighted by Sportsnight 
and shown live by Grandstand, has 
raised public consciousness. The event 
should persuade Mr Richard Tracey, 
the Minister for Sport, who was present 
yesterday, together with the Sports 
Council and local authorities, that 
hockey is exciting, disciplined and 
skilful and is worth the investment of a 
hundred artificial pitches. 

Tracey had a message of goodwill in 
the tournement programme. What 
hockey needs is the goodwill of financial 


quarters of a million. When I asked 
David Whittaker after the semi-final 
how, in an amateur sport, England 
could develop any further beyond their 
present limited level of umning and 
coaching, the answer was simple: what 


director at WiUesden. and. the tem- 
porary limited company organising the 
cup. have put on a memorable tour- 
nament with the help of 250 volunteers, 
in addition to the sponsorship of NEC

small main stand, has been temporarily

Two days after the derisory rejection 
by the International Olympic Commit- 
tee of Birmingham’s Olympic bid, Juan 
Antonio Samaranch, the president, 
came to suburban north-west London to 
present yesterday's trophy, and saw for 
himself the kind of situation which for 
so long has epitomized British spore 
enormous voluntary effort doing its 
utmost to compensate for basic lack of 
funds. 

Britain contributed to the world 
much of all that is best in amateur sport, 
yet, last Friday, Birmingham paid the 
price of a century of amateurish 
administration in too many sports. It is 
somehow characteristic that Bir- 
mingham, creating admirable new facil- 
ities, was unfancied by the IOC. yet 40 
years ago it was impecunious Britain, 
masters of improvizauon, which volun- 
teered to stage the Olympics when no 
one else had the money or energy after 
the war.

erected and will now disappear. 
England’s hockey quality will live on. 


Mrs Thatcher offered a welcome to 
the world in Birmingham's video film 
presented to the IOC in Lausanne, but 
the sporting facilities of Britain in the 
main fell wretchedly short of the 
competence of our competitors., as 
Dodds, Kerly and the rest have just 
demonstrated. It is symptomatic that 
Southgate, one of our best hockey clubs, 
has no artificial surface on whkh the 
best hockey is now played. 


There is so much about hockey, as 
television has revested to a huge new 
public, to be recommended. Illegal 
physical intimidation is punished, the 
regulations arc properly upheld, the 



pitch is a lesson to soccer. The two- 
umpire system, for so long stubbornly 
refused os a consideration by soccer, 
works admirably and permitaplayers to 
getaway with little. 


Cudmore working 


^ “We finished 
op in the frame 
W -■% i and I am not 
w A displeased with 
^ A our perform- 


on improvements 



.*■ &JKR ance. Having 


now raced against our 12 
opponents, we know our 
weaknesses and how to im- 
prove them,” 

That was how Harold 
Cudmore, skipper of Britain's 
America's Cup challenger. 
White Crusader, summed up 
his crew’s performance in lire 
first round-robin trials that 
ended in Fremantle yesterday. 

With three boats tying for 
first place on points, the Royal 
Thames challenger was forced 
to share fourth place with the 
radical, twiu-niddered, Gary 
Mufl-designed, USA II skip- 
pered by San Franciscan Tom 
Blackaller, after losing 
Sunday's win against I talia in 
the protest room. 

With fractions dividing die 
first five boats, each syndicate 
is now pouring over the Delta 
times of their rivals during 
each race is as attempt to 
pinpoint their weaknesses and 
work out ways to match their 
strengths, making the nec- 


essary adjustments to their 
own boats * 


before the start of 
the second round-robin series 
for these challengers starting 
on November 2 when the 
winners of each race will be 
awarded five points. 

An analysis of the eight days 
during the past series, when 


each of the top five boats were 
racing, shows the full extent of 
the speed difference between 
Britain's challenger and the 
Chris Dickson-skippered, 
New Zealand IV, which 
proved to be the fastest boat 
on the water. 

Upwind, White Crusader 
was fourth fastest, setting an 
average speed during these 
eight races of 7.84 knots 
against 7.99 knots of the New 
■Zealand boat Downwind, 
where Crusader lost most 
ground to her rivals, particu- 
larly in the early stages of the 
competition, she was slowest 
among the top five with an 
aggregate speed of 7.9 knots 
against the 83 knots achieved 
by Dennis Conner’s Stars and 
Stripes '87. However, new 
spinnakers taken on board 
halfway through the series 
brought the Howlett design up 
to speed with the best by the 
time the series ended. 

The British still have their 
work cut out improving their 
reaching performance, for 
they were again slowest 
among the top five with a 
mean speed of 9.16 knots 
against the 9.3 knots achieved 
by the New York Yacht Club 
challenger America IL 

Crusader’s average speed 
around the course during 
these eight comparable races 
i was 8.18 knots which, when 
set against the 836 knots 
achieved by New Zealand’s 
“plastic-fantastic”, leaves her 


at more than a 3% minute 
disadvantage over a full cup 
course. 

Lack of stability was one of 
the problems feeing the Brit- 
ish crew, but a new keel to be 
fitted to the boat before the 
next series should solve this 
problem. Her sail wardrobe 
also showed some deficien- 
cies, but the £1.1 million 
sponsorship from White 
Horse is already producing 
benefits in this area. 

The number of breakages 
sustained during these early 
races to sails, mast, winches, 
sheets and instruments has 
also been cause for concern. 


Widnes blow 


Other syndicates, however, 
have shown themselves to be 
in a far worse state. The 
Courageous crew, who have 
almost needed a calendar to 
count them round the course, 
cancelled a press conference 
called last night to announce 
the purchase of a replacement 
12 metre — probably America 
irs trial horse US44 — while 
negotiations continue. 

The two Italian syndicates 
are expected to change their 
boats for unproven radical 
designs which are both under- 
going major structural sur- 
gery. and Heart of America, 
which underwent changes as 
soon as she arrived in Fre- 
mantle last month, is also 
expected to go back into the 
builder’s shed for further 
modifications. 


Widnes Rugby League Club 
have been shaken by the news 
that their Australian scrum 
half, Craig Coleman, must 
return to South Sydney by 
March 1. Widnes arc appeal- 
ing for a month's extension 
because they feel March is the 
most important time for cup 


ties. 


Myler stays 


Tony Myler. the Great Brit- 
ain stand-off, has withdrawn 
his transfer request and 
pledged his future to Widnes 
rugby league club. 


Doncaster duo 


Doncaster rugby league dub 
Tons 


have signed Tony Kemp, a 
under-21 international centre 
and Telmadge Sharrock. a 
second row forward from 
Waiters, a top New Zealand 
club.

American winner of the Tour 
de France in July, has renewed 
his contract in Paris with his 


La Vie Claire cycling team,
