Israeli Government in crisis over Sharon remarks :■ 


• The lulling of 21 Jews in Istanbnl led 
to a crisis in Israel when concessions to 
Palestinians were blamed 

• Arabs assumed that the Istanbul 
nmssacre and the Karachi hqack were 
planned by the Palestinian Abu Nidal 

• CoiffnsKm remained in Karachi about 
the role of Pakistani security forces in 
the hijack shooting in which 18 died 

• Libya braced itself for possible attack 
after the massacres as Israel and the 
US vowed to avenge their dead Page 6 

Israel's Government faced a 
new crisis yesterday over 
statements by Mr Ariel 
Sharon, the Trade Minister, 
that a Turkish synagogue at- 
tack was the Palestinian an- 
swer to Israeli peace efforts. 

Mr Shimon Peres, the 
Prime Minister, adjourned a 
cabinet meeting just after the 
Government stood at atten- 
tion to honour the 22 Jews 
killed in. the attack on Sat- 
urday by Arabic-speaking gun- 
men on an Istanbul syn- 

The general assumption in 
the Arab world was that both 
the Karachi hija cking and the 
synagogue massacre was the 
work of Abu NidaTs extremist 
Palestinian Group, almost 
certainly designed to discredit 
Mr Yasar Arafat's PLO and to 
destroy any chances of a 
negotiated peace in the region 
in the near future:

ments are feared to have

Hosnik Mubarak, later this 
week. ‘ * 

On Saturday night MrPeres 
had vowed that kraef would 
“not rest until h had cut off 
the murderous hand" respon- 
sible for the Istanbul attack. 
He reacted to Mr Sharon’s 
remarks by terminating the 
meeting after a few minutes. 

Mr Peres rfwnmKfad a full 
public apology and recanta- 
tion from MrSbaron before he 
.would agree to reconvene the 
cabinet, at which operative 
decisions mi Israel’s reaction 
to the massacre were expected 
to betaken. 

Mr Sharon had earlier . 
submitted an explanation of 
his remarks in writing to Mr 
Peres, which the Prime Min- 
ister found inadequate. 

“If be (Sharon) doesn’t take 
back his words. I believe the 
Prime Minister will fife him,** 
Mr Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz, the 
Interior Minister, said. “Jew- 
ish blood was spilled and’ 
suddenly there is fighting 
among Jews." 

Mr Peres' adjournment of 
the ca binet meeting was . un- 

precedented in his two

swap jobs next month with Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir, the Foreign 
Minister, leader of the Likud 
bloc that mrimien Mr Sharon.

It is thought that Mr

two days. 

Two hundred and nine 
passengers and eight infants 
flew out of Karachi yesterday 
after the bloody trauma of 
their hijacking on Friday. 

They left behind 18 dead 
fellow hostages, a group of 
passengers too badly wounded 
to risk travelling and. most 
evocative of all, a line of 
shoes, hand baggage and nov- 
els all awaiting claimants. 

In the airport terminal they 
also left behind a state of 
confusion among the Pakistan 
authorities about what hap- 
pened on Friday night. 

It is now perfectly clear. that 
the “firm action” praised bya . 
number of foreign govern- 
ments -and even lauded on 
Pakistan television by Mr 
Mohammad Khan Junejo, the 
Prime Minister, was a delu- 
sion. No passenger died in any 
crossfire between foe hijack- 
ers. No passenger, or any 
member of the press, spoke to 
even saw any members of the 
Pakistan security forces until 
long after they had fled the 

Estimates vary over foe 
time that elapsed between foe 
moment the hijackers began 
massacring their hostages and 
the arrival of foe security 
forces in foe plane. 

According to Air Marshal 
K.A. Mirza, head ofPakistan’s 
civil avaiation authority, it 
took 25 minutes. According to 

Brigadier Tariq Mahmud, in 
charge of the Army task force 
on foe ground, they moved in 
as soon as they heard foe 
shooting begin. 

The departing passengers 
also left behind one grievously 
injured English woman. Miss 
Catharine Hill aged 26. who is 
in the intensive care unit of 
foe Aga Khan hospital here. 

The hospital, opened a year 
ago, is of a standard to make 
foe average national health 
hospital in Britain look like 
something out of the dark 
ages, and many of foe staff are 
Pakistanis returned from

treatment there is almost cer- 
tainly better than anywhere

Fowler loses plea for new 
post in Cabinet reshuffle 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent - 

The Prime Minister is be- 
lieved to havederided that Mr 
Norman Fowler should stay in 
his post as Secretary of State 
for Social Services despite his 
wish to be moved in this 
week's Cabinet reshuffle. 

Mrs Thatcher has appar- 
ently decided to go into foe 
next election with her present 
Cabinet tine-up virtually un- 
changed. It is probable that, 
there will be no changes at' 
Cabinet level in the min- 
isterial reorganization to be 
announced tomorrow or, 
more likely, on Wednesday. 

But there will be substantial 
changes in foe middle and 
lower ministerial ranks in - 
what is potentially the last 
reshuffle before the election. 

The Prime Minister gave 
foe Queen a broad outline of 
her plans during her weekend 
at Balmoral. 

Today she returns to . 
Downing Street after a visit to 
Geveland in the North-east, 
and mil this evening been 
detailed work on the reshuffle 
with Mr John Wakeham. the 

Government Chief Whip, and 
other advisers. 

Mr Fowler has been in his 
present post since 1981 and his 
hopes for a change have been 
apparent. His supporters have 
been championing him for the 
post of Secretary of State for 
Trade and Industry, now held 
by Mr Paul Channon. 

But Mrs Thatcher appears 
to have decided that it would 
be unwise to ask another 
minister to take over foe laige 
health and soda! security 
department, covering an area 
of policy which is regarded as 
crucial to foe Government's 
fortunes, so- dose to an 

Senior Conservatives also 
believe that she would have 
been reluctant to move him to 
foe industry department, in 
any case, because of his role 
within foe Cabinet, along with 
Mr Peter Walker, of opposing 
foe sale of Land-Rover to 
General Motors, of the United 

Department are, however, ex- 
pected to form a central 
feature of the reshuffle. Mr 
Barney Hayhoe, foe Minister 
of Health, and Mr Ray Whit- 
ney, his deputy, are expected 
to be replaced as Mrs Thatcher 
seeks a sharper defence of foe 
Government’s health record. 

Mr Chris Patten, the Min- 
ister of State for Education 
and Science, is believed to be 
the leading candidate for foe 
post of heahh minister but 
Mrs Thatcher may be reluc- 
tant to offer one of the main- 
promotions of the reshuffle to 
such a renowned “wet”. 

In an intriguing speech yes- 
terday to a Federation of 
Conservative Students con- 
ference in Leicestershire Dr 
Rhodes Boyson, Minister of 
State for Northern Ireland, 
and a strong favourite of foe 
right, appeared to be making

Food poisoning hits doctors’ meeting

Doctors attending a con-

Four hundred clinicians, 
nurses , and health specialists 
had eaten cold meats, meat 
pies, seafood and salad at the 
Lakeside Restaurant at foe

Cardiff, at Friday lunchtime. 

That evening two of foe 
delegates were admitted to the 
casualty department with se- 

vere vomiting and diarrhoea. 
The next day a further 23 
people with suspected salmo- 
nella poisoning were admitted 
to the hospital 

By Saturday evening 35 
people had been seen, some at 
neighbouring hospitals in Car- 
diff and 80 people had re- 
ported symptoms of food 

The hospital was inundated 
with calls from clinicians who 
had attended the conference, 
demanding to know foe cause 
of foe Alness. The conference 
was scheduled to end on 

Saturday but by then most of 
the delegates had gone home.

The conference delegates 
had attended private res-

were also being checked by 
environmental health officers. 

Mr Averillo said that kitch-

were entirely separate from 
those preparing meals for 
patients and staff at the hos- 
pital. No patients had gone

Boy dies 

trying to 
save dog 

A boy, aged 11, drowned in 
rough seas at Blackpool yes- 
terday while trying to rescue 
his pet Jack Russell terrier. 

It happened close to the 
spot where three police offi- 
cers were drowned three years 
ago attempting to rescue a 
holidaymaker who had gone 
in after bis Jack Russefl. The 
man also drowned. 

Yesterday, foe body of 
Mark Watts, of Oevedon 
Road, Blackpool was recov- 
ered more than three hours 
later, as the tide ebbed. A 
beach patrolman entered the 
water wearing a safety 

With the sea lashing against 
foe promenade, a man had to 
be restrained by police and 
patrolmen from plunging in 

after foe boy. who could be 
seen floating out of the range 
of lifebelt and grappling hook. 

Onlookers watched help- 
lessly as the boy disappeared 
from sight, dragged down by 
foe undertow. 

Mr Tom Grainger, chief 
beach patrolman, said later 
“My patrolmen at the scene 
could bear comments such as 
■Why don’t they go in after 
him’, but they don't realize the 

“There isa smooth concrete 
apron to foosea wall and it is 
impossible to get out of the 
water when foe tide is high 
and rough unless someone is

was too dangerous for any 
swimmer to go out” 

A search was carried out by 
Blackpool's two inshore res- 
cue boats, but abandoned after 
two hours. 

Earlier. Mis Bessie Cadweti, 
aged 71, a holidaymaker from 
Huddersfield, had warned the 
boy and his two friends not to 
run foe dog along the sea wall 
parapet moments before foe 
dog fell in. 

scow threat 
spy trial for 
US journalist 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

The superpower row over 
Nicholas Daniloff the Ameri- 
can journalist arrested nine 
days ago by foe KGB, grew 
more serious last night with 
the disclosure that he has now 
been formally charged with 
spying against foe Soviet 
Union and will fece trial if a 
deal is not struck between 
Moscow and Washington. 

Fust news of foe charge was 
provided by Mr Daniloff in an 
18-minute telephone call to 
foe local office of US Nen y <£ 
World Report , the magazine 
he has represented here for 
five-and-a-half years. “He told 
me that he had been officially 
indicted on charges of 
espionage." said his colleague, 
Jeff Trimble, who explained 
that Mr Daniloff had said the 
KGB investigation of his case 
could last nine months or 

Mr Danfloff who is being 
held with another prisoner in 
an 8ft by 10ft prison cell in 
eastern Moscow, was arrested 
at noon on August 30 after 
meeting a Russian friend and 
exchanging gifts. His relatives, 
colleagues and senior US of- 
ficials all claim be was delib- 
erately planted with secret 
material later found in foe 
package which he received. 

Mr Trimble quoted Mr 
Daniloff as telling him yes- 
terday: “My case is moving 
into a more serious phase. The 
charge of espionage puts it on 
a par with another case we 
know about” This was appar- 

ently a reference to foe Soviet 
physicist, Mr Gennady 
Zakharov, arrested in New 
York last month and now 
awaiting trial on spying 
charges in the US. 

Mr Daniloffs British wife. 
Ruth, has argued from foe 
outset that her husband was 
deliberately set up by foe KGB 
to engineer a direct swap for 
Mr Zakharov, 

During the telephone call 
Mr Daniloff aged 52, said he 
had been told in jail that he 
was being charged under arti- 
cle 65 of the Soviet criminal 
code, which deals with es- 
pionage. This article provides 
for between seven and IS 
years in jail or labour camp or 
for the death penalty. 

“His voice sounded strange, 
although he was calm and 
collected throughout.” said 
Mr Trimble, who recently 
arrived here with his wife to 
succeed Mr Daniloff. He also 
said that throughout foe call, 
Mr Daniloff had declined to 
give more details about the jail 

Mr Trimble added that Mr 
Daniloff had emphasized that 
he hoped foe affair would not 
have an adverse effect on US- 
Soviet relations. Western dip- 
lomats believe that as long as 
Mr Daniloff remains in jail 
such an effect cannot be 
avoided. “Things will gei even 
more serious if he actually 
goes on trial ” one said last

Atom leak 
in Finnish 

Helsinki (AFP) — Two So- 
viet-built nuclear power 
plants in southern Finland 
were shut down after a radio- 
active leak at one of them last 
Wednesday, foe Finnish Cen- 
tral Office for Nuclear Power 
Station Safety said yesterday. 

The official report blamed 
staff error for foe leak at one 
station at Lovisa, about 30 
miles east of Helsinki, in 
which 594 cubic feet of weak 
radioactive water escaped. 

The plant manager said foe 
accident did not represent any 
danger to foe reactor staff or 
the environment 

Nuclear power safety of- 
ficials said permission to re- 
open foe plants would only be 
given when the firm which 
operates the plants. the 
Zmatran Voima company, had 
dearly explained safety rules 
to staff. 

Finland, which has two 
Soviet nuclear plants and two 
of Swedish design, was one of 
the countries most affected by 
the Chernobyl disaster, which 
made the Finnish government 
shelve plans to commission an 
additional plant with one or 
two Soviet reactors.

aide urges 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

■ Sir John Hoskyns. former 
head of the Prime Minister's 
Downing Street policy unit, 
today adds his voice to the 
growing clamour for far- reach- 
ing changes in the way White- 
hall is run. including a system 
giving ministers their own 
"cabinets" to help with their 
government, party and 
Constituency work. 

; In a report published for a 
conference in London, Sir 
John, director general of the 
Institute of Directors, says: “It 
is becoming increasingly diffi- 
cult to find anyone outside the 
ranks of government min- 
isters and senior Civil Ser- 
vants who does not believe 
that fundamental overhaul of 
the machinery of government 
is now a matter of urgency. 

"Virtually all retired senior 
officials , most ex-ministers 
and many academics are now 
convinced that something is 
seriously wrong.” 

Sir John's intervention is 
embarrassing for the Prime 
Minister as it comes six weeks 
after the Government effec- 
tively rejected a call by the ail- 
party Commons Treasury and 
Civil Service Select Commit- 
tee for Whitehall changes. 

The changes would have 
included the introduction of 
policy units for the secretaries 
Of state of government depart- 
ments, more outside advisers 
and the separation of the roles 
of the Cabinet Secretary and 
head of the Home Civil Ser- 
vice. currently held by Sir 
Robert Ann strong. 

The conference, oiganized 
by the institute, will be at- 
tended by politicans. Civil 
Servants, academics and 

journalists. The first similar 
conference on “ reskilling 

government", held fast May, 
i for the 

expressed clear support 
introduction of a French 
"Cabinet" system to fit British 
needs, at an estimated cost of 
£ 7.7 million. 

Ministers would have an 
enhanced private office or 
executive office with appoin- 
tees to help ministers with 
their constituency and party 
work, experts to advise on key 
departmental issues which 
would be drawn from Civil 
Service ‘lugh-flyers” and ca- 
pable outsiders, and analysts 
capable of policy research. 

The Treasury committee 
made a similar proposal ear- 
lier this year, suggesting that 
the new offices should be 
termed ministers' policyunits. 

The Labour, Social Demo- 
crat and Liberal parties have 
all since backed the proposal, 
but the Government resisted 
the committee's proposal that 
there should be an experiment 
in some departments. 

Sir John accepts that the 
concept of a Cabinet system 
has now taken root m the 
three opposition political par- 
ties and that any change of 
government would be likely to 
be followed by the early 
introduction of this form of 
strengthened policy support 
for ministers. 

Sir John says that this does 
not did mean that the new 
consensus was necessarily 
right, but he adds: “To refuse 
even to consider the possibil- 

ity that die government mar- 

line might, after 50 years, 
need an overhaul seems to us 
to be irresponsible."

the championship, presented 
Mr Wareham with his prize of 
a crystal bowl and £500 of 
Harrods vouchers. 

One reason for Mr 

Wareham's win, which he 

readily conceded, was the 
absence from the finalists of 
Dr John Sykes, who has won 
the title outright eight times. 

An eaiiy fa vo m i te to win 
was Mr David Armhage, a

- Health ' authorities- have 
been. 'told tp collect informa- 
tion ori the fate of iaU very 
small . premature- babies who 
arc turned away, -from such 
units. * x • • ' 

The : study is- being - co- 
ordinated -by Dr Neil 
McTniosh, a consultant 
paediatrician- based at St 
George’shospital, London. 
_A> study based on -two 
Thames regions in 1984 found 
thatof 14 babies who did not 
get places in - special units, 
eight died. Dr McIntosh said 
that Ihedeafh tele seemed 
exceptionally high. 4£ Only 10 
per cent orpur -referrals die 

"Dr McIntosh is one of , 14

Analysing the findings at :rt>- 
gkraal level, .before theyare 
sent to the national perinatal 
epidetniologyomt at die John 


Radcliffe Hospital, Qxfcfcd, 
forfiirfherflnaiyiis. " ; 

He agreed with remarks 
made fast week by -Dr Peter 
Fleming, a consultant 
paediatrician at the Hospital 
for Sick Children in Bristol, 
that saving chfldren’s.liyes 
was hot seen: as. a priority. 
“Administrators and hospital 
consultants m other specuil- 
ties ■ think we ' are wasting 
tmmey and wasting time." 

Dr John Roylance, district 

esion Health Authority re- 
jected Dr Flemiiig’s claim that 
manager s were -t^mg him not 
to treat premature babies. .. 

: "'There is ho way that any 
administrator anywhere in the 
heahfa. service would grvethat 
quite unbelievable,” he said. 

Dr- Rpylance also denied 
that any babies turned away 
from the hospital had died. . 

- He claimed that: the two 
Bristol ■ specialist units pro- 
vided adequate neonatal care 
far the .catchment .areal lit 
addition, 13 per dent of the 
halves - treated, came from 
outside that area. . . 

Meanwhile,' one of the bio- 
chemists cm lhe “cot deaths” 
research team at Sheffield has 
said that. .there is now an 
urgent peed -for. centres 
specializing in .neorfatal 
screening inaH the.' 14 regional 
health authorities so that they 
can. do'.'’ their own 
investigations, v 

Tests for the enzyme defect 
they had discovered cost more 
than £230- each,' and were 
tintetonsuming, -as it lode 
more -than a month -far the

days to.'analyse' the results,

-nataOy, t»y. testing a sample of 
fluid - from - the- mother’s 
womb, or ppa-sataHy, by 

an^mg.t^'lissiiefrbtn the 
child.- . 

Dr. Mike Bennett^ a bio- 
chemist on the team, said that 
at the moment only Bir- 
mingham, London and Baris- 
- tol, as wefl as SheSkM,were 
capable of doing the testsThe 
reason was, in the m^in, lack 
of trained staff ■ ■ ■ 

He . added that there were 
only a dozen clinical bio- 
cbemi$ts in the country who 
would have the appropriate 
experience in tissue culture to 
analyse the cells. 

At' the moment Sheffield is 
being inundated -with samples 
sent from other parts of die 
country to he screened, but is 
unable to do more than 50 
each year. *' 

. The researchers discovered 
that the enzyme defect is 
present in . many of the “col 
death” victims. It prevents 
them fifom breaking down 
fatty acids and can an 
energy shortage. 

The researchers suspect that 
the deficiency is responsible 
for between 5 and 10 per cent 
of a9 cot deaths, and is present 
in one in every 10,000 babies: 

Children are. particularly 
vulnerable to it when ihey 
have picked up minor infec- 
tions or are very tired. If the 
brain is not supplied With 
enough enerey h may sud- 
denly stop functioning. The 
treatment is a simple carbo- 
hydrate diet, winch, in most 
cases, can be given by the 
parents at home. 

Dr Alec HowaL senior reg- 
istrar in pathology at the 
hosmtal and one of the team 
of r esearchers, said that until 
now doctors had used the term 
“cotdeath” to disguise the fact 
that the cause of death was

The article says: There has

sere are now too many areas 
in which this has been allowed 
to fall into 'the hands of

promoting promiscuity . 

The group is supporting 
amendments to the sex educa-

portance of a normal family

Boy facing deportation in hiding 

A boy aged two and bis 
adoptive parents were fa hid- 
ing in tiie Bradford area last 
Bight after disobeying an order 
that be should be deported to 
his native Pakistan. 

Khurafa Azad should have 
been on an aircraft yesterday 
travelling bade to Pakistan, 
after a late attempt to keep 
him fa Britain had been 
rejected by the Home Office. 
Instead he was believed to be 

at a secret address. The boy 
was bora fa Pakistan but 
almost immediately after his 
birth he was given for adoption 
to Mr Abdul Khaliq, aged 42, 
and his wife, Anwar Begum, 
aged 32, of Cecil A venae, 
Bradford, by his natural par- 
ents, Mr Khaliq's brother and 
his wife. 

The Khaliqs have been mar- 
ried for 16 years bat have been 
unable to have children. Mr 

Khaliq said yesterday: “I want 
to keep him in this cotmfry. He 
is Bke my own son. He believes 
Rn flfand is his home. I fare 
him and there wQl be no point 
fa doing anything, working or 
whatever, if he is not with ns." 

Mr Max Madden, the La- 
boar MP fin: Bradford West, 
failed fa an attempt to per- 
suade the European Court of 

H itman Rights that die 
deportation decision should be 

reversed. He then asked Mr 
David Waddfagton, the Home 
Office minister, for permission 
for the chil d to remain in 
Britain for five mouths so that 
adoption proceedings could be 
completed at Bradford. 

That move also hiirf. Mr 
Madden said: “It is a victory 
for inhumanity and bureau- 
cracy and I do not believe h is 
a victory the Home Office 
would want"

Handsworth riots 

Revels mark anniversary 

By Craig Seton 

Thousands of people took 
to the streets of Handsworth, 
Birmingham, yesterday for an 
annual carnival that also 
marked the first anniversary 
of the riots which left two dead 
and dozens of shops looted 
and fire-bombed in the inner 
city area. 

Fewer than 100 police offi- 
cers patrolled the streets yes- 
terday, but another 110 
officers with immediate access 
to riot equipnmnt and, if 
necessary, plastic bullets were 
on standby, but well out of. 
sight of the revellers enjoying 
the West Indian-style pro- 
cession and steel bamls. 

Since last year's riots Kttle 
appears to have changed and . 
few of the scars have healed. 
According to one community 
leader, none of the ingredients 
which sparked the nots, un- 
employment, deprivation, ra- 
cial tension and poor relations 
with the police, have been 
tackled, in spite of the concern 
expressed by the Prince of 
Wales when he visited 
Handsworth this summer. 

Little rebuilding has been 
carried out, street muggings 
and open drug lairing continue 
and friction remains between 
the police and local black 
youths. Shops that were looted 
and wrecked still have not 
been replaced. 

Only £400,000 of about 
£8 million compensation 
sought by local traders has 
been paid by the West Mid- 
lands Police Authority, which

Mr Eric Faux, chairman of 
the Soho Residents Associ- 
ation, said: “People arc still 
apprehensive, and old people 
particularly arc frightened to 
go out on the streets. 
Muggings and assaults against 
the person are as prevalent as 
ever and so is drug abuse." 

Supt David Love, Who is in 
charge of Handsworth police, 
said: “You have to be sen- 
sitive to the fact that it is the 
anniversary. The volatility is 
still there, but it is quite placid 
at the moment. 

“Our relationship with the 
public isgood, but we do have 
this difficulty with a small 
minority committing rob- 
beries and dealing in drugs. 
We do not condone those who 
use drags, but our priority is to 
target the dealers." 

Mr Trevor Rogers, of the 
West Midland Police Author- 
ity, said that it was now hoped 
to have all 500 claims for 
compensation completed by 

He said: “We are not getting 
all the information we need 
from the claimants. If people 
get their claims sorted out, we 
will pay as quickly as we can." 

Traders whose property was 
destroyed or stolen in the riots 
have said that the area could 
become a “ghost town” if 
rebuilding does not start soon. 

Billions in 
cash spent 
on cars 

By Christopher Wurman 
Property Correspondent 

Almost a fifth of the money 
provided in mortgage loans 
last year, about £6,000 mil- 
lion, was used for purposes 
other than buying a home, a 
firm of London stockbrokers 
claims in a report published 
today. r 

The total loaned in 1985 
was around £31,000 million, of 
which building societies lent 
about £26,500 million and the 
remainder came from ba n ks 
and elsewhere. 

The potential loss to the 
Inland Revenue, assuming tax 
relief at the minimum rate, is 
estimated at more than £1,740 

Quitter Goodison makes 
the estimate in a report for 
77ip Mortgage Business, a new 
business and management 
magazine from EMAP Busi- 
ness and Computer 

The report says that the top- 
up mortgage is the cheapest 
way of raising cash for a new 
car or exotic holiday, and that 
it is the building societies 
which are unwittingly acting 
as middlemen. 

“It is the easiest thing in the 
world to get say £10,000 
through the top-up loophole," 
Mr Bryan Hubbard, editor of 
the magazine, said. 

“The resources of the build-, 
ing societies are overstretched 
and, quite frankly, they do not 
have the time to check the real 

Any street-wise borrower 
can claim a legitimate reason 
for the loan, and go out and 
buy a new Granada with tax 
relief," he added. 

The Inland Revenue is 
aware of the problem, but said 
there was little that could be 
done there was no policing of 
the top-up sector. 

These are the last few 
months, however, when the 
borrower can take advantage 
of this tax “perk", the maga- 
zine says, because from Janu- 
ary 1987 building societies 
mil be allowed, under new 
legislation, to offer unsecured 
loans without tax relief. 

£250,000 to 
save house 

An undisclosed British 
buyer has paid a reported' 
£250,000 to save Melton Con- 
stable Hall in Norfolk, de- 
scribed as the finest empty 
country house in England, 
which requires repairs es- 
timated at £1 million. 

The hall, used as the setting 
for the film The Go Between. 
has not been lived in for 25 
years. The owner, Mr Geof- 
frey Harro Id, a farmer, was 
forced to sell after Norfolk

Hospital waiting lists: 1 

Many patients forced 
to wait in agony 
for more than a year 

Experts ‘failed to

There are 661,249 people 
wafting for hospital treatment 
Many luve been waiting for 
more than a year, sometimes 
in agony. 

Almost 40,000 people have 
been on orthopaedic 
consultants' books for non- 
urgent operations for more 
than a year, and neatly 10,000 
people have been waiting for 
urgent orthopaedic opera- 
tions, including hip replace- 
ments, for more than a month. 

Statistics show that some 
parts of the country are much 
worse off than others, often for 
no apparent reason. A person 
waitnig.for a hip operation in 
the Midlands may have to 
wait twice as long as someone 
in Merseyside or North-west 

' West Midlands Regional 
Health Authority holds the 
longest waiting list for trauma 
ana orthopaedic surgery in the 
country. In September 1985 
about 15,937 people were 
waiting for operations, nearly 
a third for more than a year. 

But in one district in Was- 
te* region, 95 per cent of all 
patients on non-urgent ortho- 
paedic wafting lists had to wait 
for more than a year before 

The reduction of hospital waiting lists is high on the 
political agenda, and ministers have asked health 
authorities to produce plans by October to tackle the 
delays. In the first of two articles, JW Storm** 
describes the extent of the crisis. 

being treated. 
Ministers si 

misters suspect that many 

of the people oh waiting lists 
no longer need treatment, 
either because they have died 
or have moved to a different 
part of the country. 

Last year the NHS manage- 
ment board sent out another 
reminder asking health 
authorities to review their 
waiting lists. Many have still 
not done so. 

Ministers and managers ar- 
gue also that even if waiting 
tunes fell, increased demand 
means that it is rarely reflected 
in falling waiting lists. 

Figures on performance 
show that length of stay and 
the number of operations 
performed per department 
vary from district to district 
The type of operation can also 
differ enormously. One 
ophthalmology deportment 
may spend most of its time 
carrying out cataract opera- 
tions on elderly patients, while 
another department wul do 
mostly major surgery- 

Mr John Yates, an aca- 
demic who works for the 

Health Services Man ag em ent 
Centre m Birmingham, fecit 
that bad management is partly 
to blame. He says that lists 
could be reduced significantly 
by making sure that beds ana 
operating theatre sessions are 
used more efficiently. ' 

He proposes that the bonus 
payments due to general man- 
agers could be withheld if 
managers foil to bring down 
their waiting lists, pointing out 
that the Government should 
now be directing its attention 
at the 30 districts responsible 
for a third of ibe country's 
waiting lists. . 

He admits that some dis- 
tricts need more resources . 

In addition, some doctors 
used waiting. lists to boost 
their private practice, “ft 
would be interesting to see 
how many operations some 
consultants performed in the 
NHS, compared to the num- 
ber they carried out 
privately", Mr Yates said.

‘denied a 
home link 9 

By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 

Sixty children in public care 
on average have no contact 
with any member of their 
j£nily, the Family Rights 
Group says. There are about 
7,000 in children's homes or 
with foster parents in England 
and Wales. 

A book published today by 
the group, an independent 
charity, describes the break- 
down as “tragic”. 

It discloses that many local 
authorities have foiled to com- 
ply with the Governments 
code of practice insetting up a 
proper internal appeals proce- 
dure for parents and other 
relatives unhappy with 
arrangements for access. 

Mrs Jo Tunnard, the 
group's director* says the 
defaulting authorities do not 
acknowledge the importance 
of maintaining links. 

A law introduced in 1984 
gave parents the right to 
challenge social workers* de- 
cisions to stop them seeing 
their children. The group 
adds: “Sadly, other relatives, 
and tire children themselves, 
are still denied this rigbL”. ^ 

The book gives detailed 
examples of difficulties that 
families face. 

One girt aged ! U was living 
in a children's home in the 
countryside and was allowed 
to spend every weekend at her 

mother's home. One Sunday 
she got back six hours late 
because of heavy snow. 

Two weeks later her normal 
visit was stopped. The social 
worker said that was because 
of her previous late retura- 

An other mother bad to 
visits to her daughter, 
re, 100 miks away by 
using a telephone box to Uy to 
contact a social worker, then 
pay for public transport out of

The book suggests that, 
given goodwill, social workers 
can do much to promote and 
maintain links between chil- 
dren in care, their parents and 
ibe rest bf the fomily.

- Conciliation and 
Democracy instead of 
Terrorism and Tyranny 

When the National Front for the. Salvation of 
Libya was launched, in October 1981, it set out to 
mofciliw, “encourage and write all Libyan forces 
to expose further the destructive reality of 
Gaddafi's rale”. 

With the Gaddafi’s terrorist identity fully exposed, 
and his regime standing today friendless, isolated, 
internationally discredited, bankrupt and all* but 
totally defunct, that objective can he add to have 
been virtually achieved. 

The Front undertook to organise a comprehensive 
programme of struggle with the aim of overthrow- 
ing the Gaddafi regime. It embarked on plans to 
gather resources, activate groups, seek support to 
from various quarters and initiate activities in all 
directions. In this way, the Front has been aMe to 
inspire Libyans of all persuasions, and motivate 
then to join the national struggle and bnfid a 
national democratic movement that Iras attracted 
workers and supporters from all sections of Libyan 

In addition to exposing his fraud and humbug, the 
Front has posed a tangible threat to Gaddafi. 
Daring operations, such as the may. 1984 attack by 
the Front’s military units, the Salvation Corps, on 
Gadam’s headquarters at Bab al-Azizya, and the 
widely influential daily radio transmissions, have 
undermined the very foundations of Gadaffi’s 
te^xnc . And together with the Front’s intensive 
and successful contacts with many countries and 
I inlwnational bodies, these activities have brought 
about t he tw ists and turns that have become a 
marked feature of Gaddafi’s policies, as well as his 

And hence, the front's other objective of offering a 
democratic alternative to GadafiTs terrorist re- 
■P*. and gaining worldwide support for the 
Libyan national struggle^ cam also be said to have 
been rirtuaUyaccorapfished. 

However, one other binding comnritment of the 
■Frost--' to give our people the opp o rt uni ty to 
determine their own firtnre, and establish arepre- 

in Libya - has not yet been realised. 

This commitment still starids today. But, while the 
task ahead remains formidable, Els Excellency 
Dr. Mohamad Yosef akMagariaf the secretary 
general, Ms coBeagnes and members of the 
National Front for the Salvation of Libya, are - 
now more than ever-confident of eventual trramph. 

Time, most certainly, is on onr people's side.

For 1985-86 the cover was

of £1.4 million. The firm 
would have' inrwi £75 million

To help to solve the prob-

Tough ney 
laws on 
in force 

By Hagh Clayton 
Ennronment Correspaodent 

Landowners who cat down 
woodlands without . per- 
mission can be made to 

reptant them undertough new 

forestry laws which operate 
from today. 

The Forestry Commission 
will also have a new power to 
enter private land, plant trees 
on it and charge the cost to tbe 
owner. . . 

They wfll apply only to large 
groups of trees, and will not 
prevent householders -from 
cullin g down trees. 

The new rule will enable the 

Forestry Commission to serve 
an order on a convicted 
person forcing him or her to 
plant new trees on the land 
and maintain them for up to 

10 years. 

An order could state which 
type of trees had to be planted, 
so that if broadkaves were 
felled illegally the owner 
would not be able to replace 
them with * fester-growing 

Owners who fail to cany out 
replanting orders can be fin 
up to £2,000. 

The new law enables owners 
who object to replanting or- 
ders iyyrad a gain yf the m tO 
appeal to ministers. 

Official surveys show that 
more than a third of wildlife- 
rich ancient woodland in Brit- 
ain has been cut down since 
1945. . 

‘Millions wasted’ 
on poor design of 
prison buildings 

By Peter Evans, Hoine Affairs Correspondent 

Tens of millions of pounds 
have been wasted because af 
the “mon amenta] 

incompetence” of the Home 
Office in the building of jails, 
the Prison Reform Trust said 

By the Home Office's own 
estimates millions of pounds 
have been wasted, Mr Stephen 
Shaw, the trust's director, 

A refreshing pause for Mark Gaynor, a “living pain ting ”, during 
wall, snsjned in harnesses and corned from head to foot in may 
Gaynor is one of three former art students bringing, a new mea ning t 
ExMfeiUcsn, which opened at foe Novotel Centre, Haramersnntfa, v 

g a seven-hoar stmt mi a 
rylic and greasepaint Mr 
to still life at the DIY^ 
west London, yesterday. 

The catalogue of faults cited 

by the trust ranges from 
building facilities that are 
never used, to the whole high- 
security prison at Full Sutton, 
near York, costing more than 
£20 million, which the Home 
Office admits was surplus to 
requirements, the trust said. 

The accusations reflect the 
trust’s continuing concern 
about the ability of the Home 
Office to deliver an adequate 
building programme. 

Mr Shaw referred to ev- 
idence given earlier this year 
by Home Office officials to the 
Commons Public Accounts 
that, for example, 
the intended renovation of 
Wormwood Scrubs had in- 
volved the construction of 
new buildings which sub- 
sequently were found to be 
unusable because of a change 
in plans. 

He disclosed that a letter to 
him from Mr Christopher 
Tram, director general of the 
prison service, indicated that 
Full Sutton may never be used 

for the purpose for which it 

was designed. 

Furthermore the committee 
had criticized the design for 
replicating the acknowledged 
ypT yralfPc made in another 
maximum-security prison, 
Frankland, Durham. 

At Liverpool new cell doors

said. Repairs to Wymott

was open represent 70 per

The design for the £50 
minion new remand prison on 
the Woolwich Arsenal site 
actually assumes compulsory 
ceD-sharing for most of the 
unconvicied prisoners who 
will make up its population, 
Mr Shaw said. 

When two house blocks at 
Eriestoke House youth cus- 
tody centre and detention 
centre. Devizes, were com- 
pleted in March 1983, the 
Prison Officers' Association 
refused to operate them. 

They were eventually occu- 
pied in October 1984 after 
security locks, which restrict 
inmates' access to night 
sanitation, had been fitted.

The US contends that Mr

Delhi has imposed Presi- 
dent's rule in the state of 
Jammu and Kashmir because 
the Governor's rule, in force 
since March 6, could not be 
extended beyond six months 
under the terms of the state's 
separate constitution. 

President Zaii Singh has 
stepped in under article 356 of 
the Indian constitution, which 
empowers him to intervene 
when a state’s constitutional 
machinery fails. 

In practice there will be no 
change. The Governor bad 
been running the administra-

tion. Now he will run it under 
the Indian constitution as tiie 
President’s agent. The six- 
month limit specified for this 
arrangement can be extended 
to two years.

Finland honours former president 

From Olli Kivinen 

The Finnish people paid 
their Iasi respects to former 
President Ur ho Kekkoncn in a 
sombre state funeral yesterday 
afternoon. Tens of thousands 

of people gathered along the 2- 
mile route from the cathedral 
to the national cemetery. 

President Kekkoncn. who 
held office for 25 years, died 
on August 31. aged 85. 

His funeral did not become 
an occasion for East-West 
political meetings as only 
Seandinavian countries were 
represented by heads of state. 

Sweden and Norway sent 
their Kings and the Soviet 

Union was represented by 
vice-President Pyotr 

The state funeral was 
marked bv lack of dramatics 
which reflects the fact that 
during Kekkonen’s presidency 
the country achieved an un- 
heard of degree of stability and 

President Paul Biya of Cam- 
eroon is introducing cautious 
reforms in a climate of un- 
certainty. In the Jim of two 
reports, Gavin Bell reports 
from Yaounde on the Presid- 
ent's progress. 

Urte fast month the Tribute, 
Cmarooon*! French-fangaage 
daily newspaper, was ores an 
unusual story by the Govern- 

It concerned tbe release of 
14 influential political pris- 
oners, a rare event in West 
Africa, on the orders of Presi- 
dent Biya. 

A few days later, Mir Biya 
began a state visit to West 
Germany, leaving his adminis- 
trators and generals to cope 
with the disruptive aftermath 
of a volcanic gas explosion, the 
worst natural disaster in the 
country’s history. 

Two apparently unrelated 
events, but together fllnstrat- 
mg growing confidence in the 
stability ®f a country with 
every right to be considered 
among the mast susceptible on 
the continent to internecine 

The repnUk inherited by 
Mr Biya in 1982 is a bewilder- 
ing mosaic of tribal, religious 
and cultural communities that 
provide all the ingredients for 
tension and rivalry. 

Cameroon is the only Af- 
rican country fa which French 
and English are both official 
languages, a legacy of the 
United Nations Trust Terri- 
tories which merged to form an 
independent republic hi 1961. 

There are 213 separate 
tribes, with name rots sub- 
dans. Those of the northern 
regions bordering Chad and 
Nigeria are largely Muslim, 
those of the sooth are predom- 
inantly Christian, and anim- 
ism (ancient traditional reli- 
gion) persists throughout tbe 

This volatile cocktail ex- 
ploded in 1984 when Mr Biya, 
a southern Christian, tried to 
change members of an elite 
presidential guard created by 
his predecessor, Mr Ahmadou 
A hid jo, a northern Muslim. 
He survived an assault on ins 
palace by the enraged guards, 
thanks to prompt intervention 
by loyal Army units, but the 
warning was salutary. 

Mr Biya has dace moved 



cautiously in introducing polit- 
ical and social reforms aimed 
at a more democratic system of 
government and d h n in a ting 
the Botorioes corruption of the 
previous regime. 

A gradual replacement of 
the OM-gnard political mafia 
with a younger generation of 
technocrats, has produced 
seven reshuffles at ministerial 
level solar. 

His boldest move was to 
initiate free elections to tbe

eromtais. Regional delegates 
bad previously been ftff^kted 
by the centra] committee. 

However, an invitation to 
political opponents abroad to 
return and join his campaign 
for unity almost backfired. 
Many west given influential 
positions in the administra- 
tion, notably in health, educa- 
tion and housing, and were 
among those subseqneutiy id- 
entified by the Tribune as hav- 
ing fomented political agtta- 
thw and subversion. 

A local journalist, a member 
of the influential Bameteke 
tribe, described Mr Kyi's 
task thus? "After years of an- 
thoritarian rule under Ahidjo, 
Cameroon b like a pressure 
cooker. Whip off fix fid, and it 
wiD explode in yom* face. 
Remove it slowly, and there’s a 
chance nothing will spin out" 

In his view, the President 
was gaining respect for hon- 

esty and liberal reforms, but 
he still had to convince the 
people that tine new morality 
was being practised by his 
senior ministers and advisers. 

Diplomats In Yaounde, the 
capital, agree that Mr Rya's 
leadersf up has been fairly pos- 
itive, and regard him as the 
closest thing in Africa to the 
Western concept of a social de- 
mocrat. They are sceptical 
about reports of repression, 
and estimate the uumfaerof po- 
etical opponents still in deten- 
tion at less than 10. 

One problem has been an 
excessively slow-moving 
bareancracy, with its roots in 
the centralized power of the 
presidency. Embassies tend to 
deal directly with the 
Preside&fs staff, rather than 
with ministers, for executive 
derisions. Mr Biya h aware of 
the problem, and French 
consultants are understood to 
be advising him on moves to 
devolve a»fcsrity. 

The opp«mtion is frag- 
mented and hugely in exile, 
and there is no evidence of 
serious discord betweoi Chris- 
tians and Muslims. 

Anglo-French finguistk ten- 
sions are more apparent. Op- 
portunities for higher educa- 
tion and careers fa state ad- 
ministration are limited with- 
out a mastery of French. 
Hence there have bees peri- 
odic rnmbfiugs of discontent 
from the Anglophones, who 
constitute almost a quarter of 
the lft-maHon population. 

Mr Biya has gone some way 
towards appeasing them with 
pnhfic speeches in English. A

Mr Stephen Solarz, a senior 
member of the House foreign

discussed “the fate and future 
of political prisoners” and 
“the possibility of establishing 
a broader dialogue” between 
authorities and society in talks

The aim of the congress- 
man's visit was to assess the 
future of US sanctions against 
Poland, imposed when mar- 
tial law was declared in the 
winter of 1981. The Poles say 
that the US is still enforcing

agreement between the two

But the renewed agreement 
is likely to have little initial 
impact on what is a rather

On the eve of historic Thatcher visit 

Norway facing instability 

From Tony Samstas 

By the admission of its 
Prime Minister, Norway, until 
recently the envy of Europe 
for its affluence and stability, 
has become an economic and 
political shambles, virtually 
ungovernable, and will remain 
so at least until the next 
general election in 1989. 

Mrs Gro Harlem Brundt- 
land, who took over in April 
as head of a minority Labour 
Government, says she is re- 
signed to the danger that her 
country might develop over 
the next three years into the 
“Italy of northern Europe”, 
where successive governments 
rise and fall with monotonous 
regularity until the constitu- 
tion specifies that the next 
election can take place. 

In an interview at the 
weekend, her first with the 
British press, Mrs BrundUand 
told The Times: “What we do 
not know is how long this 
minority Government will 
last It would be bad if Norway 
were to change governments 
every half-year...but this could 

The rot had set in, in her 
view, as early as the end of 
1984, when it was already 
clear “the Norwegian econ- 
omy was badly led, in an 
expansive atmosphere of eno- 
rmously increased private 
consumption and high levels 
of credit, which reduced 
competitiveness and over- 
heated the economy long be- 
fore the dramatic fell in the oil 

Mrs Bnuddand: facing un- 
precedented turmoil 
price". Mrs Thatcher is to visit 
Norway on Thursday and 
Friday this week, an historic 
visit bringing together 
Europe's only two woman 
Prime Ministers. 

The invitation was issued 
and accepted during the 
administration of Mrs 
Brundtland's Conservative 

predecessor, Mr Kane Wiiloch, 
who resigned after his “Easter 
package” of emergency budget 
measures was defeated in the 
Storting (Parliament). 

His coalition Government 
was said at the time to have 
been the world's first political 
casualty of the collapse in oil 
prices and Norway, Europe's 
second-largest oil producer, 
has been struggling ever since 
to pick up the -pieces in a 
Parliament with no dear 
majority and what Mrs 
BrundUand describes as an in- 
built potential for stalemate at 
every turn. 

Mrs Thatcher’s visit is the 
first by a serving British Prime 
Minister since Norway has 
existed as a separate nation. It 
takes place against a back- 
ground of unprecedented 
domestic political turmoil 

The Prune Minister has 
called a crisis meeting on the 
economy, at which she will try 
10 persuade employers and 
trade unions to make yet more 
unpalatable sacrifices in the 
national interest 

Mrs BrundUand, preoccu- 
pied with domestic in-fight- 
ing, plummeting public opin- 
ion polls and the imminent 
prospect of the tight of her 
political life, refuses to be 
drawn on pqtential flash- 
points in her discussions with 
Mrs Thatcher. 

There are several One is 
what Norway has seen for 
years as British intransigence 
m refusing to accept Scandina- 
vian arguments implicating 
the Central Electricity Gen- 
erating Board in much of the 
air pollution responsible for 
“add rain"; others might well 
include nudear power, “die 
burning South Africa issue", 
and perhaps especially “the 
East-West situation, the out- 
look for negotiations on peace 
and arms control”. 

Norway's development un- 
der its new Labour Govern- 
ment as one of the “footnote 
nations" of the North Atlantic 
Treaty Organization has at- 
tracted a great deal of atten- 
tion in Europe, and with 

As Mrs BrundUand emp- 
hasizes, any reservation reg- 
istered by Norway represents 
"the majority in the Govern- 
ment and the majority in the 
Norwegian Parliament”, un- 
like Denmark's more frcquenl 
(and notorious) “footnotes” • 
where "the Danish Govern- 
ment does not believe in tbe 
footnote itselT. The split in 
Denmark between Govern- 
ment and ’ Parliament has 
lasted several years. 

When she agreed to form a 
new government, Mrs Brundi- 
land said equal opportunity 
for women would be a corner- 
stone of her policies. 

She wasted no time, appoi- 
nting a Cabinet in which eight 
out of 18 ministers were 
women, a world record 44.4 
per cent The Storting already 
had a record 34 per cent of 
women MPs. The world (and 
its wife) took immediate no- 
tice, fascinated. 

Mrs Brundtland, an ex- 
tremely serious woman who , 
might be expected to bridle — 
she bridles easily — at such a 
frivolous approach, is un- 
ruffled. On the contrary; 
“These statistics show women 
in this country are much 
better off than women in most 
other countries." 

Mrs Brundtland concludes 
that she is looking forward to 
welcoming Mrs Thatcher on 
Thursday, and reliable sources 
indicate that the chances of 
the Labour Government 
remaining in power at least 
that long are excellent. 

Threat to 
relations - 
with Seoul ; 

From David Watts 

A new diplomatic incident 
is threatening relations be- 
tween Japan and South Korea,' 
two weeks before the Japanese*' 
Prime Minister is to visit' 

The embarrassment is over 

Mr Bob Hawke, the Australian Prime 
Minister, right, shaking hands with the 
Chinese Vice-Premier, IVir Wan Li, before a 
tennis match at Mr Hawke’s Canberra 
residence at the start of Mr Wan’s visit. 

China, which gave the world pug-pong 
diplomacy, had to concede to Australian 
competitiveness yesterday in this new bilateral 
sporting contact. Mr Hawke, aged 55, and his 

partner beat Mr Wan, aged 81, and his partner 
6-3, 7-5 (Stephen Taylor writes from Sydney). 

Mr Wan bad defeated Mr Hawke in China 
earlier this year. Yesterday's result may hare 
been influenced by the Gut that Mr Hawke was 
partnered by Mr Frank Sedgmaa, the former 
Wimbledon singles champion, while Mr 
Wan’s partner, Mr Li Fnrong, was only a 
former world champion at table tennis.

the Nanking massacre in 
1937. He is quoted as saying: 
“I wonder which cases should, 
be tried by wartime inter- 
national law?” 

He also claimed that Japan 
was “slashing its own arms, 
and legs .... to adjust to: 

foreign countries”. 

The South Korean Embassy 
in Tokyo said the interview, in .

There is speculation that Mr

The Church of England is ruled 

by the General Synod, a group 
with immense power whose 

decisions affect millions, though 
few churchgoers know its inner 
workings. In the first of a series, 

Charles Moore reveals how this power is wielded, 
assesses its impact on the laity and asks why 
the Synod is so unrepresentative of the movement 

The shadowy 
figures who 
rule from afar 

I t is not generally known that 
the General Synod governs 
many aspects of the Church, 
although its more 
controversial debates and 
decisions are widely reported It 
may be that the Synod is the most 
'important influence in the 
organization, tone and even the 
theology of the modern Church, 
yet it is understood by scarcely 
anyone outside its own member- 

The Synod was inaugurated by 
the Queen in 1970. Its total 
membership is 560, divided into 
three houses — bishops, clergy and 
laity. The clergy compose the 
lower houses of the two 

The laity are elected by deanery 
synods which are themselves cho- 
sen by parochial church councils, 
for which in turn a small minority 
of churchgoers vote. So 
“democracy" is mitigated by a 
good many intermediate stages. 

The result is that the laity which 
takes an interest in the Synod is 
untypical of congregations. It re- 
quires a special sort of mind to 
wish to fulfil the work of the Holy 
Spirit through the machinery of 
the General Synod 
- It also requires a special son of 
occupation. The Synod meets for 
II full days each year. Because 
clergymen are busiest on Sundays, 
most of the sessions have to take 
place on weekdays. They occupy 
full working days. Almost all the 
lay people taking part are either 
rich or old or both, and not 
enough of them have strong 
connections with un ecclesiastical 

Because the Synod is a leg- 
islative body, it needs a proper 
secretariat. Even its most active 
members cannot expect to rival 
the knowledge of its permanent 
staff because, unlike MPs, they 
have a forum for less than two 

weeks of the year. It follows that 
the Synod's paid servants are 
powerful men. It is generally 
acknowledged that one man has 
run the Synod almost from its 
foundation in 1970: Derek 
Pattinson, secretary-general since 

Pattinson. who is a bachelor, is 
the pattern, almost the caricature, 
of a discreetly powerful Gvil 
Servant (which is what he was 
before he joined the Synod). He 
has a large head but very small feet 
which emerge from pinstripe trou- 
sers. with the suave manner and 
orderly movements and appear- 
ance of one accustomed to getting 
his way without public attention. 
There is no important work done 
in the Synod without his approval. 

When the Synod meets 
Pattinson is its secretary and 
hesits next 10 the chairman of each 
session surveying the three-quar- 
ter cirde before him and referring 
to a large file containing photo- 
graphs of the members. He under- 
stands the composition of the 
unofficial factions in the Synod — 
Evangelicals, Anglo-Catholics, 
radicals — and advises the chair- 
man whom to call. He is also the 
chief executive. He runs Church 
House, meeting the heads of all its 
departments every Tuesday morn- 
ing. influencing all important 
appointments and sitting on im- 
portant committees. 

His religious and political views 
are naturally subjects of great 
interest to members of the Synod. 
The general opinion is that he is a 
moderately conservative man 
who probably supports the Social 
Democratic Party. In religion, be 
verges on the Anglo-Catholic, but 
tempered with discretion and 

In general, however, it is a 
mistake to look for strongly-held 
prejudices in Pattinson. The 
consistent theme which can be 
discerned in his attitudes is one 

that any student of C Northcote* 
Parkinson would recognize — be 
wants to increase the scope and 
authority of his organization. 

One of the many complaints 
made against MPs by Synod 
activists is that they do not know 
how the Synod works, and never 
witness its proceedings. It is worth 
looking at the sessions of the 
Synod, particularly to compare 
them with those of the House of 
Commons. After all, here is a body 
which has pronounced itself com- 
petent to decide the worship and 
doctrine of the Church ofEngtend. 

C ertainly h is true that the 
standard of debate in the 
Synod is high. Unlike 
Parliament, where time 
is much more pfcntifiil, 
there is generally a time-limit for 
speeches, but each speech is 
listened to respectfully. On a 
subject like the ordination of 
women, where the battle lines 
have long been drawn and feelings 
run both deep and high, most 
debate is predetermined, but in . 
the famous debate on nuclear 
weapons in February 1983, for 
example, the superiority of the 
anti-unilateralist speeches scans 
to have done much to sway a 
Synod which had been thought 
likely to have gone the other way. 

As with most important ses- 
sions, the character of the nuclear 
debate was emotional but polite. 
Where MPs tend to stick either to 
details of policy or to partisan 
insults. Synod members like to 
make large speeches in the name 
of holy things. Canon Paul 
Oestreicher, a familiar figure at 
the Synod and on the inter- 
national pacifist circuit, spoke of 
the need for "holy foolishness" 
and (hinting comparison with 
Green ham Common) the “women 
who went all the way to Golgotha 
with Jesus".

6 Runcie has admirable qualities 
without achieving greatness 9 

Dr Runcie is extremely well suited to the c u rr en t ideal of an 
active archbishop. He is extremely welt-organised with a 
strong competitive urge which drives him to enormons effort. 
The approved phrase to describe Dr Rnnde’s archbishopric is 
a “listening leadership". There is no doubt that tins works 
better Hub a deaf leadeisisip. And ft is also true, as one of the 
archbishop's former staff points out, that “yon need myopia to 
be a visionary**. 

Dr Runcie is not a visionary and that makes life at Lambeth 
Palace easier. If Dr Runcie is a man who successfully 
combines many admir able qualities without achieving 
greatness in the parts or the whole, it is sensible for him not to 
aspire to heights which he has no hope of attaining . Dr Rnncie 
has neither the ori ginali ty nor the arrogance to phmge the 
Church into a period of precipitate change. He is very keen, 
for example, that lftnrgical experiment should cease. He has 
i&imeiied a u amber of eloquent defences of Oe Bodcsf Com- 
mon Prayer and he is wonied by the division of practiceaad 
doctrine produced by so much liturgical variety. 

Church could conduct a second 
marriage? Apparently not, but nor 
did it think that people had any 
automatic right to a second (or 
third, or fourth) church marriage. 

All the same, the Synod pressed 
ahead and in July 1983, it _ ap- 
proved one of the various options 
for remarriage procedures which 
the Synod's standing committee 
bad proposed. This ■recommenda- 
tion, known as “Option G" , left 
the final decision in each case to 
' the diocesan bishop, but asked the 
parish priest and the couple 
involved to fill out various forms 
which would go before a commit- 
tee and the bishop himself. The 
bishop's decision would be final 
and the couple would pay a fee for 
the service which would be non- 
returnable even if their petition 
was unsuccessful. In November 
1983 the final stage of the process 
necessary to make Option G law 
was passed and the Synod 
congratulated itself. 

At every stage of this process, 
many of those who voted for it 
were uneasy, and yet did so out of 
a curious feeling that the Synod 
should do something. 

It is amusing, for instance, to 
follow the pronouncements of Dr 
Habgood. In 1978, when Bishop of 
Durham, he opposed any form of 
remarriage which distinguished 
between people. In 1981, he 
warned that “any decision to go 
forward with the remarriage of 
■divorced persons would, 1 believe, 
be deeply divisive and would lead 
to very different disciplines being 
exercised in different dioceses, 
mid I think this would be highly 
undeniable". • 

. But in November 1983, .when he 
was by this time- Archbishop'of 

are assured of a good reception in 
the Synod, but the surest path to 
success in debates is to adopt a 
tone of bumble moderation. In- 
deed there is a special adjective for 
it, “eirenic" — meaning peaceful, 
conciliatory, vaguely holy — which 
is constantly used in the Synod as 
the highest term of praise. It was 
predictable that, once the Bishop 
of Salisbury's unilateralist motion 
had been rejected, the Synod 
would look for some compromise. 
It duly adopted the amendment 
moved by Dr Hugh Montefiore, 
Bishop of Birmingham, and de- 
scribed as “eirenic" by Dr John 
Habgood, Bishop of Durham 
(now Archbishop of York), which 
forswore the first use, but not the 

possession, of nuclear weapons. 

An affair which reveals the 
limitations and characteristic 
behaviour is the mailer of the 
remarriage of divorced people in 
church. At the Synod of York in 
July 1981, the Bishop of Win- 
chester moved a motion in re- 
sponse to the diocesan synods 
which declared that there were 
times when a divorced person 
whose husband or wife was still 
living should be allowed to re- 
marry in church. 

The motion was approved but, 
as so often in the Synod, without 
any real agreement about the 
issues involved. Did the Synod 
think that the first marriage had to 
be rendered null before the 

his complaint that the Synods 
1981 had never agreed to the 
principle' that in^jriages^KwfiTbe .

“I simply cannot' imagme. the” 
clergy of .tbp. Church of England 
going through this procedure for.

should go ahead despite its “fool- 
ish procedure" and “make it work 

• Sure enough. Option G came to 
grief In between the Synods of 
November 1983 and February 
1984 it was discussed at meetings

gave rather more power to bishops 
than Option G had done.

Inscrutable royals 

China's one bOUon people 
regard Britain's Royal Family 
with a mixture of wonder and 
ignorance, if informal surveys 
are any guide. “Ah, Eliz- 
abeth", exclaimed a Shanghai 
cab driver, who professed to 
know a great deal about the 
Queen's forthcoming visit to 
the People's Republic. “She's 
the British Prime Minister, 
isn't she?" 

Many Chinese appear to be 
aware that women currently 
play a major role in governing 
the United K ingdom and a 
huge number of them are also 
familiar with pictures of 
Charles and Diana from trie- 
vision news reports and the 
country's developing general- 
interest magazines. But most 
have only the dimmest notion 
of who the Windsors are or 
exactly what they do. 

The average Chinese in one 
of his country's major dries 
tends to regard Britain as a 
carious amalgamation of 
democratic and monarchical 

institutions, though Britons as 
indi vidnak are known here for 
their sense of fair play and 
love of sport. 

Such benign attitudes to- 
wards things British have not 
always prevailed m China. For 
most of the 20th centary, 
Britain's colonial role in China 
was lumped together with 
Japan's imperialist iesigns. 
While these sentiments 
largely faded after the ana- 
munist takeover in 1949, a 
popular Chinese movie .of 
recent years. The Burning of 
the Summer Palace, has kept 
them alive for recounting the 
Anglo-French destruction of 
the opulent Yuan Ming Yuan 
palace in Peking 136 years 

So it was with a m i ngl ed 
sense of excitement and dread 
that a foreign visitor, while 
browsing in the central book 
store of Yichang (pop. 40,000), 
a former British treaty pot 
along the Yangtze river In 
Hubei province, picked up a 

The role of the 
British Royal 
Family is under 
scrutiny by 
the urban Chinese 

paperback with a cover paint- 
ing of the Prince and Pr in cess 
of Wales with a horse and 
bearing the Chinese title The 
Marriage that Dazzled the 
World. The 163-page book, 
translated into Chinese, is a 
reprinting of an American 
book published in 1981. 

In it Diana is called “a child 
of our generation, from a 
broken borne — beautiful, 
gentle, everything a princess 
should be". Of-Ctorfes the 
book observes: “The Queen 
came across the English edi- 
tion of this book in a Xian 
bookshop. Being In an ancient 
imperial capital of the east 
(Xian was die capital city of 
the powerful Tang dynasty) I 

behaved like all mothers,

naughty and spanking him

In an af te rword the trans- 
lator, Deng Zhnufeng, says: “I 
felt it was a coincidence of 
history to discover a book 
about the lives and loves of a r 
western royal house. 

“Great Britain, which b 
also called the empire which 
never sets [sfej, is one of the 
oldest countries in 
Europe ... England is still 
one of the few monarchies In 
die modern world and the 
Queen of England is the 
supreme ruler. As a Chinese I 
am entranced by toe history of 
my people and have a desire to 
understand the emperors of 
each dynasty in Chinese his- 
tory, and love to hear about the 
goings on withm the palace of 
the feudal emperors. What is 
the inside of the British royal 
house really like?"

Like Option G, it insisted on 
restating the Church’s leaching, 
contained in Canon B3G. that 
man-jay, is lifelong, and yet 
devised a procedure for second 
marriage. It also refused to by 
down criteria for remarriage, so 
the problems of “pastoral" dis- 
cretion remained: Indeed, The 
Archdeacon of Ipswich, who car- 
ried through an amendment 
insisting on a lack of criteria, 
actually argued as follows: “If the 
criteria were dearly known, pec* 
pie could truthfully say. *We fit 
into the criteria.” Yet in your 
heart,- you, as the parish priest; 
might be thinking. *77115 is not the 
right couple to be -married- -in 
church’." In other words, the 
“heart" (which could easily be no 
more than the whim) of the parish 
priest should supersede any rule.' 

Without enthusiasm, the Synod 
permitted the house of bishops' 
proposals to go ahead. But as the 
dioceses discussed, more and 
more came to reject the proposais. 
Thirty-two dioceses rejected them 
against 12 accepting. The bishops 
were forced to drop their regula- 

T he Synod's solution was 
highly characteristic of 
modern Anglicanism -r 
bishops should be al- 
lowed to permit clergy- 
men who wished to do so to 
remarry divorcees, no clergyman 
being forced to remarry a couple 
against his will. 

The Synod, of course, is at- 
tacked from all sides. In. sections 
of the press, it is thought to be 
dangerously left-wing. Among its 
radical members, it is considered 
stodgy and un visionary- In feet 
however, , it. is not the political 
-position of the Synod nor its 
uninspiring quality, which are its 
' most dangerous characteristics. 

Only one, important theme tuns 
"through the work of the Synod 
centralization. The fecttiiat so few 
’ people know' what .the Genera 
: Synod is, or care to know, suggests 
a form of government extremely 
- distant from most church people. 
And yet the Synod takes advan- 
tage of that distance to expand its 
scope. In matters of worship and 
doctrine, in the organizing of 
parishes, the training of priests 
and the spending of money, the 
Synod has changed the Church 
dramatically and acted in feyour 
of itself. '

Searching for the new fatherland 

Fathere suddenly seem tn h, n

^ chores alo ngwith th e invs nfth* 
cjMidrt g,, Libby Pnrves, in the first pf a 
series, asks how accu rate is that imapy 
~ and finds a picture of confusion 

ft? things shake a man up 
more comprehensively' than 
uft news that be is to become a 
fanner. Even an eagerly 
planned embryo can floor him 
utterly: “I had to sit down 
wien she told me”, said one, 
-Then I thought I ought to do 
something. Turn into a father. 
But-,1 didn't know how." \ 

It i$ not surprising that be 
leh so lost. No important 
social image is so blurred and 
confused as that of the father. 
On the one band, ancient 
notions of power and wisdom 
cling around the wont God 
the Father, Father Time, 

• On the other, the prevailing 
cultural dichi -which ha^ 
grown up in this century is of 
"Dad” as a lovable but inept 
stumbtebum: anxious Mr 
Pooler, getting it wrong with 
his son Lupin in Diary of a 
Nobody, henpecked buffoons 
on comic postcards, working- 
class dads in', sitcoms who 
skulk in the garden shed to 
escape domesticity, and the 
amiable middle-class 
powerlessness of Hunter Da- 
vies in the television series 
Father’s Day. 

And that's the positive side: 
1986 man is also bombarded 
by assertions from the femi- 
nist left that he is not nec-: 
cssary at all, and he must be 
slightly depressed by the rising 
divorce rate. After all, any 
“civilized” divorce involving 
children and maternal custody 
is. by implication, a statement 
that someone in it did not 
believe that a full-time father 
is a priority. 

But hdp is at hand. Cutting 
through all "this confusion 
comes the shining image of the 
New Father the man who is 
there at - the birth, who 
“bonds” with his baby, bathes 
il changes nappies, is not 
afraid to express his tender- 
ness or push a buggy. He may 
even swop roles with his wile 
and let her get back to work. 

The image fades a little as 
the children grow bigger (in- 
deed. a recent sociological 
study of role-reversed couples 
showed that half the families 
bad reverted .to a traditional 
pattern within two years). But 
in the first flush of parent- 
hood, these new men certainly 
fling themselves into it In- 
deed. the divorce boom and 
the New Fatherhood have 
formed an odd alliance to 
produce a uniquely modem 
figure: the man who leaves.his 
first wife and teenage children 
(having been nowhere near the 
birth and never changed a 
nappy), then marries a much

- Oh, my Papa: images of fatherhood, from saucy postcards to Michael Maloney in the TV drama. What if it’s Raining 

changed in fatherhood re- 
cently, but it would be an 
arrogant mistake to think — as 
some writers have implied — 
that male tenderness towards 
children was invented about 
1970. For a start the changes 
have been largely concerned 
with birth and babyhood. 

As the child gets older, some 
of the thriD wears off and most 
fathers are out all day: father- 
ing becomes a less intense 
experience, diluted by work 
and weariness; and it could be 
claimed that after the first two 
years much of the New Father- 
hood has levelled 00*10 some- 
thing very much more like the 
old sort 

As Charlie Lewis, of Read- 
ing University, points out in 
his dispassionate -study 

Becoming a Father ; neither 
the myth of the aloof and 
uninvmved father of old. nor 
the hype about the involved 
modern dad, actually holds up 
in the face of research. One 
researcher. Lummis, collected 
the oral history of an East 
Anglian fishing community 
from 1890-1914; the received 
wisdom being that fathers in 
such working-class commu- 
nities "tended to be brutal, 
drunken, and aloof from their 
families — like Walter Morel 
in D.H. Lawrence's Sons and 
Lovers". In fact, Lummis's 
study showed that the fathers 
An that community were very 
much participant, concerned 
members of the household. 

Going back further, you 
have William Cobbett writing 

M eira Chand writes 
books ' about the 
loneliness and diffi- 
culty of crossing cultural 
boundaries. Her first three 
novels collected bouquets of 
praise from the critics — “A 
very distinguished writer in- 
deed ..."wrote A.N. Wilson in 
the Spectator. - • 

. ; Her fourth novel, published 
today*, is the fictionalized 
story of another afienWn -a 
foreign land; Edith Crow.* a 
young English woman who 
fivedin Japan at the end of the 
last century and was tried and 
convicted for the murder of 
her drunken husband. 

Chand says she was hot 
interested .so much in the 
dime as in how a young 
provincial girt from Somerset 
ended up in Yokohama ac- 
cused of murder. But her own 
story is almost as strange. 
How did a half-Swiss, half- 
Iridian girt from south Lon- 
don end up in a small 
industrial town in Japan and 
become an international -nov- 
elist in that , alien culture, 
where wives are seen as 
merely breeders and home- 

Meira was bom an outsider. 
Her mother is Swiss, her 
father an Indian doctor. They 
met and married in England 
and Meira went to Putney 
High School in south-west 
London, going on to local art 
schools where she studied 
textile design. Even then, she 
says, the pages of her sketch 
book were half-filled with 
writing. . , „ 

In 1962 she married Kumar 
Chand. “a rather tat Hindu • 
She was 1 9. he was 24 and the 
couple went to live in a typical 
Japanese house, complete 
with paper doors and reed

The latest book by . 
Meira Chand again

of cultural barriers. 

. Her work is the 
product of her own

electronics export business. “I 
was a London art student one 
day and in the middle of rice 
fields the next”, she says. “I 
was terrified, depressed, 
thrown off balance in every 
way and the worst thing was 
the lack of com rmm teaUon.” 

Meira made an effort to 
know her neighbours but in 
those days, travel from Japan 
was restricted, the economic 
miracle hadn't got off the 
ground and a foreigner 
seemed a strange creature: 

T he Japanese would 
come into her home and 
allow her to talkto-them 
in broken Japanese but were 
too sdPconsaous to invite her 
back. “The only friends we 
had were among the Indian 
community”, she says, “so I 
took on two new cultures at 
once”. They moved to Kobe 
when their daughter Anjali- 
was three. Meira got a job at 
one of the international 
schools and enrolled her chil- 
dren in the American school. 

“They wouldn’t have been 
accepted in a Japanese 
school”, she says, “but any- 
way I wouldn't have put them

through that rigid educational 
system.” She was beginning to 
build a life when her 
husband's family asked him to 
come home to Bombay. 

- “It was like coming out of 
solitary confinement straight 
into a rugby tackle”. she 
remembers. “1 was catapulted 
into a vast communal family, 
all very loving and affec- 
tionate but with all the in- 
fighting and gossiping a large 
family entails. It was horren- 
dous but underneath ft all, I 
felt the awakening of some- 
thing. a spiritual discovery of 
the Indian pan of me which, I 
realized. I'd rejected. There 
was no way I could express 
that, except in writing.” 

She was in India for five 

years and she wrote and wrote. 
“Just as it was all taking off 
and I was beginning to sell a 
few stories, we had to go back 
to Japan.” 

Meira feels that she has 
always lived betwen different 
spiritual social and cultural 
worlds and * had difficulty 
- bridging each gap. “But it is 
not all negative, Pve survived. 
I'm writing. In the end it has 
all been positive.” 

Her books have been trans- 
lated into almost every lan- 
guage except Japanese. “I'm 
totally unknown in the place 
where I’m writing I think if

been different. The position of

his Advice to a Father in 1829; 
Cobbett moved to the country 
and worked at home because 
he thought a child should have 
a father in sight; if friends 
asked him to stay without his 
children, be did not go. 

Turn back -further still and 
you find — as Christina 
Hardyment did in her history 
of childcare. Dream Babies — 
the refutation of the arrogant 
modern notion that parents 
used to care less intensely 
about their babies in the dark 
centuries of infant mortality. 
She cites one Puritan father. 
Cotton Mather, who wrote in 
his diary during the measles 
epidemic of 1646: 

“Betwixt 9h and 10b at 
Night, my lovely Jerusha Ex- 
pired. She was two years and 

woman and a foreigner, with- 
out any position of authority.” 

Chand blames Japanese 
women for the awful ness of 
Japanese men. “It is up to 
women to teach their sons to 
respect women”, she says. 
“No Japanese man will take 
any notice of his wife but he 
does not dare disregard his 
mother. Even young men at 
universities will phone their 
mothers to ask if it's cold 
enough to put on a sweater.” 

S he comes to England at 
least twice a year and 
stays in her Chelsea flat, 
but she's prepared to follow 
her husband around the world 
or be left alone while be 
travels. “My husband is an 
Indian and was brought up in 
the Eastern way, so rve had to 
concede to those ideals while 
building my own life. He has 
changed over the years, too, 
and become more supporting 
and proud of what I do.” 

Where would Chand choose 
tb five if she bad the choice? 
“My instant reaction is to say 
Td be happy here in England, 
but after all these years of total 
rootlessness, I wonder if I 
could settle. I do miss Japan 
when rve been away. It's been 
.my home for 25 years and 
there are many things I love. 
Any child of mixed blood 
grows up with tremendous 
feelings of duality. 

“Most of my adult life Tve 
lived in alienated circum- 
stances. The only place where 
any welding of all these dif- 
ferent worlds begins, the only 
[dace I can see what has been 
assimilated, is at a typewriter. 
That's the place where I 
become whole.”

So let us not pretend that it 
is us, the Me Generation, 
which invented paternal 
tenderness and tears. 

It may be partly true, 
though, that we have had to 
re-invent them. Periodically, 
men retreat into machismo. 
Two savage wars, with tough 
adult male companionship, 
have probably dulled the con- 
ventional British man’s per- 
ceptions of his own tend- 
erness. And Freud did not 
help a lot, either; Hardyment 
points an accusing finger at a 
succession of 20th-century 
ba bycare books which have 

marginalized fathers: either 
fearmlly pointing them out as 
a source of future neuroses — 
with a child “carrying with 
him to the end of his life the 
tags of infantile jealousy and 
fear” — or else brusquely 
relegating Dad to the role of 
untrustworthy nurserymaid. 

Charlie Lewis found (al- 
though he points out that 

‘Most fathers are 
assistants rather 
than partners in 
family childcare 9 

there is. not much research on 
fathers because researchers 
work office-hours) that even 
today, for all the brave talk of 
New Fatherhood, “All but a 
few are assistants, rather than 
partners, in the business of 
child care” 

To have an “assistant” fa- 
ther rather than a foil partner 
may be a drawback for work- 
ing mothers, who end up with 
twojobs instead ofone-and-a- 
halff but if we are just talking 
about fathers vis-4-vis their 
children, it may not matter all 
that much. There is a school of 
thought which says that they 
are essentially different from, 
and complementary to, moth- 
ers. Some psychologists con- 
sider that the father's role is to 
represent a safe halfway-house 
between the security of 
mother and the challenge of 
tbe outside world. Fathers 
play rougher games, have 
louder voices. 

The child psychologist Tom 
Crabtree, even though he 
writes for Cosmopolitan 
magazine and is se l (-confess- 
edly in the business of build- 
ing up the New Man, admits 
that. “1 have this picture of 
man-the-hunter, trooping off 
in single file to kill bison, 
while the women sit at home 
in a family group. Then 1 see 
the men. filing off on the 

commuter train, leaving the 
family group behind. I'm 
afraid they all look pretty well- 
adjusted to me.” 

Progressive though he is. 
Crabtree observes men as 
natural competitors, rather 
than sensitive sharers. He sees 
no evidence of any great 
revolution in fatherhood and 
sex roles having taken placer 
“Oh no. Boys do fashionable 
domestic things at school like, 
cooking and sewing, but they 
arc not told that marriage and. 
children are for keeps. We 
need a job specification for 
fathers; even now. too many 
men don't understand prop- 
erly what the deal is.” 

Good family life sons out 
inequalities: with luck, two 
parents complement one an- 
other. But whai about the 
single-handed faihei? The 
1981 census lotted up 205.860 
lone males with dependents. 
Sue Slipman. of the National 
Council for One Parent Fam- 
ilies, reports that these men 
are around 10 per cent of one- 
parent families, and com- 
ments that they have the 
advantage financially: “Soci- 
ety enables a man to continue 
working, in a way that ft does 
not provide for mothers. 
Neighbours rally round and 
the father will normally be 
able to earn enough to keep on 
the family home." 

However you switch and 
swop, there still seem to be 
two roles to play in a child's 
life: one of them reassuring, 
one challenging and gay. Per- 
haps if there is any point at all 
in the concept of New Father- 
hood. it is that couples fee)

After a while, however, the 
red and white witches* hats 
disappeared from the fast 
lane and I whined down to 
the Liverpool docks in plenty 
of ' time for die 10.15pm

The car ferry had been 
fitted out with what a former 
American ambassador to 
Britain called refurbishment 
and the effect was of a mice 
homely middle-aged woman 
who had decided to try out 
false eyelashes and now 
looked a perfect fright.

From Mrs Pamela: H. White.

For more ’than 25 years I have 
been counselling parents and 
offspring in Peter Barnard's 
situation (August 27) and I am 
amazed at the naivety (and 
cruelty) of parents who sud- 
denly gain an interest In the 
finer details of tbeir child's 
course of study after the 
results have been released. 

On the day the GCE O level 
results were published, I had 
diflkolty in coping with dis- 
traught parents- Left alone 
with a 16-year-ohl for a few 
minutes, the problems and 
difficulties can be identified 
and resolved, alternatives dis- 
cussed and future action 
planned. Parents who go on 
and on about how dis- 
appointed they are about 
Johnny's results do nothing to 
hdp, and the trauma for the 
young person is made worse. 

Success in GCE O levels is 
not necessarily an appropriate 
answer for everyone — indeed, 
many successful careers com- 
mence with failure at this 
stage in life.

Spitting on 
the image 

The satirists behind ITVs Spitting 
Image enjoy conjuring grotesque 
portraits of others but now would 
they take to an expose of their own 
failings? Not well it seems. John 
Lloyd, producer of the series, 
threw a wobbly when he read the 
draft of journalist Lewis Chester’s 
forthcoming Tooth & Claw, the 
Inside Story of Spitting Image, 
which reveals that puppet-maker 
Roger Law once became so dis- 
gruntled that he attacked Lloyd in 
a hotel bar. Chester also claims 
damagingly that Lloyd at one time 
wanted to be a co-presenter to 
Esther Rantzen and confessed to a 
TV producer: “I’ve always wanted 
to be famous." Lloyd tells me: 
“When I read the draft I thought it 
must be a parody. The portrait of 
me as an elegant public schoolboy 
turned 'naughty mandarin' is not 
at all my self-image. I've never 
wanted to be famous." Only, it 
seems, the absurdity of a satirist 
squealing about his treatment has 
prevented his taking the matter 
beyond a gentle word with the 
publisher. Faber. In fearless Spit-

nored him and publishes next

because of his commitment to the

After the Karachi and Istanbul outrages, Robert Fisk explains the 
killers’ aims; Gerald Frost (below) analyses changing US policy 

Why retaliation won’t work 


The principal aim of the Middle 
East’s latest hijackers' and killer 
squads is to shock the world into 
violent retaliation for their deeds, 
to involve the western powers —or 
Israel - in an operation of such 
devastating consequences that the 
whole delicate stnicture of peace 
talks and moderation in the region 
is destroyed. 

So far. the murderers at Karachi 
and Istanbul, presumably working 
for the renegade Palestinian Abu 
Nidal. are on their way to achieve 
their ends. They have already 
brought forth a pledge of revenge 
from Shimon Peres, the Israeli 
prime minister, concern among 
the Italians that the Americans are 
again going to bomb Libya; and 
editorials on both sides of the 
Atlantic demanding “massive 
military retaliation". That is pre- 
cisely the gunmen's aim. 

The equation is quite simple. 
There are more than enough 
desperate men — most of them 
Palestinian — among the wretched 
camps of Beirut. Sidon, Tyre and 
in the suburbs of Damascus and 
Amman to send on such terrible 
missions. Ever since the Palestine 
Liberation Organization was 
driven from Beirut after being 
surrounded by the Israelis, tire 
suicidal killers have been an 
inevitable development. 

The battle of Beirut in the 
summer of 1982 was the last 
opportunity the Palestinians were 
given to fight for their cause 
against the Israelis. When that 
ended in failure, the radical 
Palestinians were bound to take 
their guns into the airport depar- 
ture lounges, the vulnerable 
American airliners that circum- 
navigate the globe and, most awful 
of all. into the places of worship of 
their own fellow-Semites. 

it is, of course, a natural 
emotion to call for revenge. Why 
should those who sponsor such 
atrocities not be punished? The 
past 38 years in the Middle East, 
however, suggest that history does 
not always share the same precepts 
of natural justice. Indeed, it is 
difficult to recall a single instance 
when the principle of retaliation 
produced anything more than 
further bloodshed. 

Year after year, Israel has 

retaliated for the attacks made 
upon it or upon its citizens by 
Palestinians. It has carried out 
hundreds of air raids on Lebanon^ 
made punitive raids into villages 
and towns, crossed more than 
2.000 miles of Mediterranean sea 
to bomb the PLO's headquarters 
in Tunis and even staged two full- 
scale military invasions of Leba- 
non to rout out whaf Menachem 
Begin in 1978 described as .“the 
evil weed of the PLO”. 

The Israelis presented all these 
operations as proof that military 
retaliation works; but as a deter- 
rent it has failed. In the years 
before Israel invaded Lebanon 1 in 
1982 its air force regularly bombed 
the Palestinians in the Bekaa 
Valley and at Damour and Sidon. 
The invasion that followed cost 
thousands of lives — including 
those of more than 600 Israelis — 
but today the Israeli air force is 
back again, routinely bombing the 
Palestinians in the Bekaa and in 
Damour and Sidon, as before. 

The Arabs, and some Israelis as 
well ask a simple question: What 
was gained? As ' preventive as- 
saults, designed to delay Palestin- 
ian attacks, they may have had 
limited success. But as a policy, 
they have proved hopeless — even 
if the western world is still 
encouraged to think otherwise. 

The moral argument about the 
retaliatory policy is more com- 
plex. If a nation warns to retaliate 
for the slaughter at Rome and 
Vienna airports last Christmas, it 

finds that one of the gunmen 
claims he wants to retaliate for the 
. massacre of Palestinians at Sabra 
and Charila.' Indeed one of them 
said be was in Charila at the time 
ofthe killings. - 

Yet Sabra and Chatila were, 
themselves the work of pro-Israeli 
Lebanese Christians who wished 
to revenge themselves upon 
Palestinians who had attacked and 
-murdered in their mountain vil- 
lages and who contributed to the 
political situation in which the 
Christian president-elect, Bashir 
Gemayel had just been killed. 

The Palestinians had attacked 
those villages because they saw the 
Christians as. allies of the Israelis 
who now occupied their land in 
the West Bank, and Gaza and — in 
many Palestinian eyes — m the 
Israeli siate itself They were still 
outraged by the much earlier 
massacre of Palestinians by 
Menachem Begin's Iigun at the 
village of Dei r Yassin in 1948. The 
Jews of Palestine remembered 
earlier atrocities by Arabs. 

The Cycle goes back even fur- 
ther. But it can end only if one side 
or the other can carry out a final, 
all-embracing retaliation which 
will correct all past wrongs;, and 
that, the Arabs say, is npt going to 
happen. The murderers at Karachi 
and Istanbul realize this afmosras 
much as those who control them, 
be they the followers of Abu Nidal 
or the still darker intelligence 
services — for there are many of 
them within each Arab state — in 

Libya, Syria, Iran or elsewhere. 

In the end, the West is likely to 
reduce, the number of such atroc- 
ities by still further security mea- 
sures and by catching those 
responsible rather than after 

they have committed their crimes.. 

The real battle a g a i n st the 
gunmen, however, must in- 
evitably be waged by their own 
people. It is the Palestinians who 
will ultimately have to crush'tfte 
Abu Nidals of this world. To do 
that, they will need credibility and 
support from the West. They will 
need a political settlement which 
accommodates the aspirations of 
the Palestinians — whether or not 
they are PLO supporter s — as well 
as of the Israelis. To refuse them 
this is one- of the aims of Abu 
Nidal's killers: which is why they 
want to see the policy of retali- 
ation continued. 

The Americans believed they 
were' entitled to bomb Libya last 
April as a result of alleged Libyan 
involvement in the West Benin 
disco bombing. To the Arabs so 
opposed to America, however, the 
lesson was different; in their eyes, 
the Tripoli air raids proved that 
the Americans had accepted their 
own declaration of war. And that 
war is now on, a conflict without 
apparent rand, and of cruel and 
fearful dimensions. A further raid 
on Libya, or a Moody retaliatory 
strike by Israel is likely to provide 
proof to the cruel men behind 
these deeds that they have been

Do those responsible hope to provoke a violent response? - 

What impact . would renewed 
American action against Libya 
have on US-European relations? 
.As President Reagan hears the 
report of his special envoy, Ver- 
non Walters, on his talks last week 
with the Nato allies, it is instruc- 
tive to examine how Europeans 
reacted last April to the bombing 
of Tripoli and Benghazi 

Their reactions corresponded to 
an emerging pattern of relations 
between the US and Europe, the 
significance of which only Mrs 
Thatcher among European leaders 
showed signs of glimpsing 

The judgement of most leaders 
and opinion formers was that the 
bombing was further evidence 
that America comports itself in 
such a way as to endanger itself its 
allies and world peace generally. 
The view is overlaid by dis- 
approval of the crudities of US 
foreign policy, and of its alleged 
lack of historical and cultural 

Marked traces of such an atti- 
tude could be found in a little 
reported speech on July IS by the 
Foreign Secretary. Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, in which, without naming 
the US. he warned of the dangers 
of “abuse of strength", “strong- 
arm tactics" and “over-reaction". 

The apologists in Europe for US 
policies generally assert that dis- 
plays of anti-Americanism will 
encourage American anti- 
Europeanism. In particular, they 
say anti-Americanism will help to 
produce .American isolationism, 
which in turn will fuel the anti- 
Americanism which helped bring 
it about. 

This argument has been well 
rehearsed. It is recognized even by 
some critics of the American 
bombing of Libya, though there is 
no evidence that public opinion 
has understood the dangers likely 
to arise from a recasting of 
American strategic priorities. 

There is no public recognition of 
these dangers because no major 
public figure has attempted to 
describe them with any cogency. 
Thev are the kind of subject about 

which one doesn't talk in front of 
the children, for fear of cauring 
unnecessary anxiety. 

- The argument expressed above 
is • normally couched in terms 
which suggest that America, hav- 
ing been frustrated and opposed by 
ungrateful and ambivalent allies, 
will retreat behind the boundaries 
of Fortress America. 

However, there is a pattern of 
events going back at least to the 
invasion of Grenada in 1983 which 
suggests that events will take a 
quite different course. This gives 
reason to suppose that America 
might indeed, for a period, become 
isolated in the sense of lacking 
reliable allies, but not, it should be 
stressed, in the sense of becoming 
introverted, regionally-fixated, 
parochial or too weary with an 
incomprehensible uni verse to want 
to play any active or inter- 
ventionist role in it. 

The phenomenon of an America 
that is both extrovert, inter- 
ventionist and isolated may be 
new. but it is something which 
Europe may have, to learn to 
contend with. It is an outcome that 
may ultimately force Europeans to 
free up to hard choices that in 
many instances they have pre- 
ferred to ignore. 

In the case of Grenada, and of 
last year's interception of the 
Egyptian airliner carrying the 
Achille Lauro hijackers, as well as 
the bombing of Libya. America 
acted alone, although in the last 
instance it enjoyed British assis- 
tance. In the cases of Grenada and 
the airliner interception, many of 
those originally hostile have 
changed their minds (a British 
minister came as close to admit- 
ting an error of judgment over 
Grenada as pride permits). 

The lesson that Reaganite 
America is likely to draw is 
obvious. Even when the allies, can 
agree that a common Western 
interest is at ride, their advice 
about how to proceed may amount 
io no more than a tedious irrele- 
vance and nuisance. It may be 
better not to seek it in the first 

place. If the US action succeeds in 
its objectives, much European 
opinion will be won round; if not, it 
must- be accepted that risks are 
inherent in such endeavours. 

Having finally discovered that it 
is better to be respected than to be 
liked, America is evidently much 
less impeded or discouraged by 
lack of European support. More- ■ 
over, having diminished the force 
of the oft-made charge of military 
incompetence by the success of its 
actions in Grenada and Libya — 
evidence of which, it is true. -may 
not yet be judged to be conclusive 
— the US has demonstrated its 
ultimate frith in Machiavellfs 
dictum that good armies have good 
friends. It has also shown its 
awareness that armies that ate 
slow to the field are likely in the 
end to have inconstant friends or 
no friends at all 

The lesson which American 
public opinion may be drawing of 
course goes far beyond the re- 
sponse to terrorism. Si nee March 
1983 when Reagan launched his 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
project (Star Wars) on an 
unsuspecting world, America has 
been wooing, urging, persuading 
and cajoling its allies over the case 
for ballistic missile defence. The 
benefits in terms of practical 
support have been very small 
Although the consequences .of the 

recent pattern of American inter- 
vention sbouldnot be exag ge ra t ed, 
the likelihood is that America will 
now be highly, selective about the 
advice it seeks and more doubtful 
about the value of consultation. It 
may also display a more differen- 
tiated response to its allies on the 
basis of friendship given in extre- 

After all if America had in- 
sisted on a united European 
response to Libyan terror, it-woukl 
not even have received British 
assistance. Where denied support 
for its objectives it w3L be increas- 
ingly prepared to act alone in 
direct defiance of its allies’ wishes. 

Europeans have long com- 
plained that America does not 
understand the complexities of 
European politics- The ability of 
European political elites to under- 
stand the changes taking place in 
American attitudes, -and the im- 
plications that may flow from 
them, will be a test of European 
judgement Inany event, in its new 
mood of lonely, if confident, 
assertiveness and independence, 
America shows evidence that 
“isolationism" may take a very 
different form from that about 
which we have heard so much.

“If! had to ban anything in life. I'd 
ban shaving. I'm annoyed by the 
sheer time it lakes." This 
announcement by the politician 
and novelist Jeffrey Archer in the 
Sunday Times recently set me to 
wondering. At first glance, it is a 
sentiment that many would echo, 
but what does the man mean, 

Given such autocratic power 
(and the way Archer's career has 
been going, anything is possible), 
would he really ban the ritual daily 
depilation of all adult males, thus 
rendering the “fiiUset" de rigueufl 
I severely doubt iL Or does he 
mean that he would exercise his 
considerable clout and call on 
govern mental pharmacists to pro- 
duce a pill that would obviate the 
act of shaving altogether? This I 
doubt even more. 

I do not believe that a depilatory 
cream would be seen to be 
acceptable: facial hair being a 
frightfully famous secondary sex- 
ual characteristic, and associated 
as exclusively with the male ofthe 
species as is. well — balding, rather 

I’d lather have 
some whiskers 

So if Archer so much resents the 
time required for shaving (and he 
has a point here: 60 hours a year, I 
reckon — one and a half working 
weeks) why does he not simply 
stop? Because, he might reply, be 
has no desire to look like Santa 
Claus all the year round. 

But here. I think, we have 
arrived at the nub of the matter to 
be clean-shaven is seen to be 
natural and normal but as we all 
know it is only natural to the 
female (who. for self-evident rea- 
sons. is seldom referred to as being 
clean-shaven), and it is seen to be 
normal only because most men 
spend 10 minutes a day removing 
the natural growth in order to 
emulate the female complexion. 

If the larger proportion of 
women in the country suddenly 
started rubbing their faces with 

■f 4 

hair restorer, it might strike one or 
two of us as bizarre, but the 
reversal of the process in men is 
seen to be perfectly usual — 
indeed, desirable. 

Many men resent the time spent 
on shaving each day, as they do 
the pain incurred to a sensitive 
throat by the raspings of an 
electric razor, followed by the tear- 
making application, of astringent 
and expensive unguents ("balm”) 
— to say nothing of the threat to 
life itself if using a blade. But this 
daily ordeal must be endured if 
“normality" is the end in sighL A 
bearded man, of course, is quite 
regularly interrogated as to why he 
grew the tiling, or as to what he's 
hiding; or ifhe has ever considered 
shaving it off; or if it makes him 
hot (no one ever asks if one's hair 
makes one hot). 

The truth is that a beard is one 
of tire few tilings in life that may be 
achieved by doing absolutely 
nothing. One does not grow one; 
one simply gives up ihe battle of 
keeping it at bay. The rest just 
happens. It is then just trimmed 
from time to time, along with 
one’s hair - an approach not 
dissimilar to gardening: lawns and 
shrubs are cut and pinned to the 
desired length, and not tom up by 
the roots at the first sign of life. 

Nor is the bearded man vain 
enough to stare at himself In a 
mirror . for 10 minutes every 
morning, while hurting his free; he 
has better things to do with his 
money than buy razors and lo- 
tions. And he will never ever run 
the risk of appearing stubbly at the 
breakfast, table, nor — as the day 
wears on — displaying five o’clock

How - looking ahead to the 
Britain of the 21st century - op 
the independent schools, see tbar 
role? I can imagine four common ■ 
answers, depending on the tra- 
ditions . and .philosophy ol tne 
particular school 

preserving academic excellence, 
some will say, stressing high 
standards, endeavour, keepmgtne 
lamp of learning alive. Others, 
keener to emphasize pluralism, 
diversity and freedo m , will talk 
about grring parents a choice. 

A third answer w31 concentrate 
on educational innovation, new 
challenges, new courses. And a 
fourth will reply in terms of the 
needs of the personality of the 
maturing adolescent, of the school 
as a caring society with certain 
values which it hopes to pass on. 

It is not possible to quarrel with 
any of this. And having visited a 
number of independent schools 
recently. I would concede without 
carping that many of them mean 
what they say, work hard at it, and 
produce good results. 

So let me go on to another 
question. Is there any reason why 
all of this should not be available 
even to children whose parents 
can’t pay, or who don't do well in 
IQ tests? 

That, I will be told politely, is 
really two questions. To the first, 
most independent schools now frll 
over themselves to insist that they 
would positively welcome more 
bright children from poor social 
backgrounds. They mil tell you 
about their bursaries, and about 
the son of an unmarried office 
deaner who has just got a scholar- 
ship to Oxford. After all isn't that 
what the assisted places scheme is 
ail about?' 

To the second part of the 
question there is usually a long 
silence, and then a regretful reply. 
Yes, of- course children of all 
abilities need . these things, but 

well so far as their particular 

school is concerned they do not 
really have the necessary exper- 
tise. But of course they have the 
greatest admiration for their col- 
leagues in the comprehensive 
schools who are struggling in very 
difficult circumstances . . . 

Now I cannot help wondering 
whether the founders of these 
independent schools would have 
been satisfied with this reply. 
Many of them were the educa- 
tional pioneers and innovators of 
their time. Seripga crying need to

understanding in a dark wilder- — — — 

ness of ignorance and illiteracy, kS 

they worked night and day to. keep *Wght be resolved if aU schools

themselves as marginal. 

. So let jne retum and rephrase 
,tny original question.. Are .the 
independent schools interested-in

probfeths of out time? . . "

Today, an extract from an exceed- 
ingly interesting cricket case. 

Vic Didley^ the England Test 
batsman, claims he was wrong- 
fully given out during a recent 
crucial county match and is suing 
umpire Len PiUey for wrongful 
dismissal Yesterday ' Len Pilley 
took the stand 

Prosecution: Your name 'is Leon- 
ard Pilley? 

PiUey: Yes, and there are six balls 
-to come. 

Prosecution; Thank you. You are 
an umpire by trade? 

PiUey: Being an umpire is not a 
trade. It is a holy calling, beyond 
good and . evil, concerned only 
with the search for truth. ' 
Prosecution: Very like being a 
barrister, perhaps? 

Pilley: Not from what 1 have seen 
in this court. {Uproar) You look 
hoL by the way. Like me to-take 
your jersey for you? . . - 

Prosecution: No. thank you! Now, 
on the 18th June, you .were 
umpiring in the match between 
Bensonshire and Natwestshire. 
were yon not? 

Pilley: Yes. It was a cool after- 
noon, with not many spectators, 
and Bensonshire had declared at 
lunch for J97 for 3. Lunch was a 
cold chicken salad with rather 
unpleasant salad; cream from a 
bottle, followed by rhubarb tart. 
Ai l-52 play recommenced and 
Vic DhUey came out to open the 

Prosecution: You have a remark- 
ably good memory. MrPilley. - 
PQley: I have to. When I . retire 
from umpiring. I hope to make a 
living as an* after-dinner speaker 
on the cricket dub circuit, telling 
racy sporting anecdotes. 

Prosecotion: Like Red True- 

Pilley: Not as long as hi* 
ProseatiMMc Now, ' we have 
reached the point where Mr 
Didley has arrived to free the first 
ball. Gould you perhaps describe 
what happened next? • 

PQley: Yes. Phil Bidley came up 
for the first delivery and I yelled 
“No.baUT ' 

Prds«sciitU»: Wby was that? 

PQley: He had forgotten to give 
me bis. sweater .to .hold. That 
counts as disrespect to an umpire. 
Prosecution: And tire next ball? 

PQley: The. next ball was a goqd- 
length long hop which Didley tried 
to dash for four, succeeding only 
-in giving it a tickle; he was caught 
by the wicket keeper .and I gave 
him put 

Prosecution: How did ypu know 
he had touched the ball?. 

PQley: l could hear it 
Prosecution: But surely you could 
not hear such a small noise above 
the screaming of the appealing 

PQley: Nowadays the fielders; do 
..not actually make a noise, while 
appealing. This is dubbedin later 
by the television technicians.. . . 
Prosecution: Well how could you 
bear such a small noise above the 
shouting of the crowd the 
colourful Caribbean calypso 
chanting of the West . Indian 
supporters and the sickening racist 

Test match. At a courrtymatch all 
you can hear is-the sighing of the 
spectators and the moaning ofthe 
'English selectors. 

' Prosecution: L see. Now could you 
' perfaaps tell rus what sort, .of 
equipment a modern umpire has 
to have with him? ■ 

PQley: Well apart from all the 
hats, coats and sweaters, and the 
six stones to count the balls with, 
we have to have light meters, 
humidity meters, pocket bar- 
ometers, wind gauges, walkie- 
talkie radios and first-aid kits. Not 
to ' mention heavy-duty, chrono- 
meters. . v 

Prosecution: And gHgeroounters? 
PQleys Since Chernobyl yes. - 
Prosecothm: The weight of all tins 
equipment must be considerable. 
PQley: It’s very heavy, yes.. 

Prosccmhm: Very noisy, too. 
Pajey: Oh, yes. Always clicking 
and ticking away. ... . 

prosecution: And yet you -expect 
this court to believe that, bent 
ovct as you were, and deafened by 
the sound of your own equipment. 
you were able to hear a tiny dick 
twenty-two yards away?-l submit 
to you, Mr PiHey, that you heaid 
nothing of the sort! 

PQley {breaking down): Oh God 
it s true. 1 I haven’t been able to 
nearanything for years! I've been 
bluffing all along! 
appeal against the light! This 
court-room is far too dark to 

Judge: Appeal overruled

mem, there is more to come 
tomorrow when Vic Didley him- 
self takes the stand.) 

but the top 25 per ccni; the 
disinclination of the majority of 
children to. continue with their p 
education beyond - the -statutory 
leaving a y, the alienation, lack of 
confidence ami misery of Iwge 
numbers of adolescents; the fret 
that we have become a multi- 
racial society without feeing the 
implications of that feel 
. Conventional wisdom within, 
the state sector is that the indepen- 
dent schools have nothing to otter 
towards solving these pro blem s. 
At its crudest it could be summed 
up in the slogan: “Keep Out, You 
Snobs!” Understandable though it 
is, it is precisely this attitude that 
haslet the independent schools off 
the hook all these years. My own 
judgment would be that although 
they have managed to insula^, 
themselves -from . most . of the 
problems, they do have expertise; 
which could make a significant 

contribution. . . , ' 

After all, they have had the 
benefit, which the state schools 
have not for the past seven years, 
of stability, continuity, enough 
books and equipment, -small 
Masses- It would be a disgrace, if 
they bad not developed new skills 
jinri insights into the processes of 
learning. Don’t some of them feel 
tempted to have a go? 

In fret, of course, many, erst* 
while independent schools we 
now in the. mainstream, '--.and 
making an important contribu- 
tion. I can think of a local example 
— started over 100 years.ago by a 
pioneer of girls’ education, later 
absorbed by the London County 
Council as a grammar school, -and 
then in 1976 becoming one of the 
first “ mini " comprehensives, at a 
time when the pundits 'were saying 
(as, they still are) that such a 
thing was a contradiction in ierms. 

And there are independent 
schools that do want to share the 
problems of the state sector; that 
admit a comprehensive intake-and 
take special trouble with- disturbed 
and difficult children. Some of 
these have in the past hoveredph 
the brink. of applying for vol- 
untary-aided status. . . 

falling -rolls and financial con- 
straints have made these possible 
overtures, irrelevant in recent 
years, buta national drive towards 
better relations between the two 
sectors might revive them.

The British Medical Associ- 
ation has published what it 
claims is new evidence to show 
how the tobacco industry is 
recruiting new people to 
smoke through advertising. A 
case of stating the obvious? 
Not if we are to beljeye the 
tobacco industry, which has 
long claimed that advertising 
enables competing cigarette 
companies only to bid for each 
other's market AH the varied 
advertisments for food, h says, 
do not increase food consump- 
tion, so why should cigarette 
advertisements lead to more 
people smoking - particularly 
when the industry has con- 
tracted by 28 per cent? 

It would be extremely diffi- 
cult to sustain the industry's 
case that advertising has no 
effect on children. The Office 
of Population Census and 
Survey shows that while more 
adults are giving up smoking, 
an increasing number of teen- 
agers are starting. Although the 
tobacco industry puts this 
down to the feet that more 
youngsters admit to smoking 
than used to be the case, it has 
confessed that they are respon- 
sible for seventy million 
pounds of their sales. No 
market should be allowed to 
encourage new young cus- 
tomers to start a habit that 
could lead to their destruction. 

The International Advertis- 
ing Association claims that 
advertising bans lead to no 
significant change in tobacco 
consumption, and that few 
children start smoking because 
of advertising. However the 


most recent evidence from 
Norway suggests otherwise. In 
1975. before a total ban was 
imposed on cigarette advertis- 
ing, 42 percent ofboys aged 13 
- 15 had already started to 
smoke. Ten years later after 
the ban. this ; figure Bad feUen 
by 14-percenLAfthougint was 
followed up by a- major gov- 
ernment health education pro- 
gramme in the schools, the ban 
did have an effect This is not 
to say that cigarette advertise- 
ments are the only reason why 
children smoke. But they do 
encourage social acceptability 
of a product that; will loll about 
one in four of those regular 
users wbo smoke 20 a day. 

Whenever the industry 
makes an agreement it in- 
geniously finds a way of 
bending it Barred from link- 
ing smoking to sporting 
healthy scenes in its advertis- 
ing, the industry sponsors 
certain sports to provide these 
links on television. Last year 
the number of televised hours 
of sport which was sponsored 
by the tobacco companies rose 
from 322 to 363. Despite the 
best intentions of the BBC the 
number is continuing to rise. 
The industry has said that it 
will sponsor only sports with 
an older profile than football 
Leaving aside the feet that the 
Football Association has said 
it turned down the offer of 
cigarette sponsorship, 46 per 
cent of aH 7-15 year-olds 
watched the 1985 world 
snooker final which was spon- 
sored by Embassy. 

Cigarette advertisements 

“in close proximity to and 
dearly visible to schools” are 
banned. But - the “Project 
Smoke Free” group can still 
die examples where the to- 
bacco industry is breaking this 
■rule. The jindiistiy .daiins that 
'.iC-is doing aH it can to 
discourage children from buy- 
ing cigarettes through its own 
campaign, which is costing it a 
million pounds a year. Yet 
they have refused to agree to a 
ban on advertising at the point 
of sale, where there are many 
advertisements without even 
any government health 

With this sort of record it is 
difficult to enter into anymore 
voluntary agreements with the 
industry. At the very least the 
government should quickly 
respond to the calls for a more 
effective means of monitoring 
those which exist. It is not 
enough to wait for breaches to 
be reported. 

But in the face of 
overwhelming medical ev- 
idence that smoking can kill, 
the time has come for tougher 
government action altogether. 
It should seriously consider 
implementing a ban on ciga- 
rette advertising altogether 
and ending, the industry's 
sponsorship of sport. When 90 
per cent of smokers start the 
habit while they are children, it 
is difficult not to believe that 
some of the extra £30m that 
the tobacco industry now 
spends on advertising is not 
earmarked for the younger

Answers for ‘Thatcher’s children’ 

Even if it succeeds in doing so 
■ a government has to locate its 
quarry or punish its hosts to 
deter them from offering shel- 
ter. The case for carrying out 
an operatuon which is less 
than surgical is always more 
questionable. Colonel Gadaffi 
has insisted on his innocence: 
He would wouldn't be — but 
in this instance most people 
believe him. The assumption 
that tiie hand of Abu Nidal lies 
behind , one if not both of the 
outrages raises questions 
about the indirect responsibil- 
ity which must be borne by 
Syria among others — despite 
a newspaper report yesterday 
that the Syrians were expelling 
his organization. Should the 
Americans act against Syria? 
These are complex issues at a 
time when Washington is once 
more trying to stitch together 
the threads of a Middle East 
peace process. 

One thing needed is a more 
coordinated approach against 
terrorism by the Third World. 
Terrorism is not confined to ' 
the . under-developed coun- 
tries. as this country, knows to 
its cost But it is their less 
sophisticated security screens 
that terrorist find easiest to 
penetrate. Most countries heed 
each other in the campaign 
against terrorism and there 
should be much greater co- 
operation between them. If the 
Non-Aligned Movement in 
Harare had spent more time 
discussing this instead of los- 
ing themselves in their anti- 
American rhetoric or listening 
(admittedly without - much 
pleasure) to the strident 
Gadaffi, they might have won 
more friends and influenced 
more people — and had a bet- 
ter conference too.

polls like the one you commis- 
sioned (September 1 - 3) and are 
uncertain about the conclusions 
one can draw from diem, you have 
published an explanatory editorial 
(September 4). You confirm that a 
certain small number of young 
people are not interested in poli- 
tics or politicians. With 
commendable frankness you then 
reveal that this so-called apathy 
“is nothing new".

From Dr A. D. King 
Sir, It is significant that your 
survey of ‘Thatcher’s children” 
made no reference to the world 
outride Britain , particulariy that 
part of it on which Bob Geldof 
-channelled their interests and 
attention last year. Had it done so, 
the survey would have found that 
the young (not surprisingly) are 
idealistic ami find it far easier to 
recognise the real facts of world 
poverty than the uncertain confu- 
sion of issues at home. . 

“Thatcher’s children” are con- 
scious of belonging to a global 
culture which your survey has 
- chosen to ignore; 

The party, that presents a 
convincing account of the 
relationship between rich and 
poor in the world economy and of 
the role of Britain in that relation- 
ship will have the support not only 
of many new voters but of many 
old ones as wefl.

Sir, Michael McCarthy’s series on 
“Thatcher's chfldrcn” is very in- 
teresting and wefl written. But to 
condude, as be does in the article 
of September 2,- that the Labour 
Party has not attracted the “punk 
vote” seemingly on the bans of 
one respondent, is surely inaccu- 

I do not profess to know the 
political leanings of punks so 1 am 
not in a position to comment 
authoritatively, but the article 
appears to do so without any 
substantive evidence.

From Mr R. V. White 
Sir, The recent series on 
“Thatcher's Children" provides 
little comfort for those concerned 
for the future of democratic 
government in Britain. The ab- 
sence of a charismatic leader to 
galvanize the commitment and 
participation of the younger voter 
may, indeed, be distuibiiK. What 
is more worrying is the feet that 
the British education system ap- 
pears to have produced a genera- 
tion of potential voters imbued 
with such a spirit of lassitude and 
an attitude of cynicism towards a 
political system which depends 
upon their participation.

For distances of less than a 
metre, when accuracy to a half-

Killing of Cbssacks 

From Count Nikolai Tolstoy 

Sir. John Grieg’s review (August 
23) of my book. The Minister and 
the Massacres, is more fair- 
minded than most and it is a relief 
to find a commentator actually 
prepared to examine the antral 
evidence: However, his explana- 
tion of Macmillan’s motivation 
far exceeds anything he attributes 
to me in the rehlm of speculation. 

- He asserts that Macmillan acted 
as he. did because he regarded it 
-as both expedient locally and 
essential for the future of Europe 
that good working- relations 
should be established with the 
Russians". In consequence Stalin

Italian communists.^s "his part of 

From Mr Dennis Wvles 
Sir, From your MORI survey it 
appears that negatively perceived 
persona] attributes are required to 
be an admired political leader. 
May I suggest, however, that it is 
the strength of opinions which are 
held, whither agreed or disagreed 
with, which appears to earn Mrs 
Thatcher respect. 

It could then be the perceived 
vagneaess of Mr Kinnooc’s opin- 
ions which push “Thatcher’s 
children", of which I am one, into 
feeling that there is no construc- 
tive alternative. This cumulates 
into a disillusionment with the 
political system and a general 
apathy toward voting.

From Mr G. C. Awe 
Sir, You make much, Justifiably, 
of your articles on ’Thatcher’s 
children", aged between 18 and 
25. The impression given is that 
their vote could be significant in 
the next general election. But this 
will not be the first general 
election for all of them. Half of 
them had the vote in the last 
general election. What was their 
significance then?

Sir, I was surprised and dis-

used in Michael McCarthy’s re- 
port on “Thatcher’s children" 
(September 3), asking which two 
or three of a dozen groups of 
people they bad the most respect 
for. failed to include the clergy. 

Perhaps they were supposed to 
be dassea under “social workers”.

slightly more of them believe that

“extreme”, then it is just as well 
for fee rest of us that so few of

Battle against weeds 

From Mr Hugh Brogan 
Sir, I recently spent a week louring 
Denmark. One of my pleasantest 
memories of that pleasant country 
is ofthe mid flowers that grew in 
great abundance at fee side of all 
roads, great and smalL It struck 
me then that if a country farmed 
so intensively and so dependent 
on agricultural produce as Den- 
mark could afford this amenity, so 
could we; so my sympathies are all 
wtit Mr Holland (September 2) in 
his onslaught on Mr St John 
(August 28). 

Yours faithfully.

the deal for the return of fee 

There is not a jot of evidence for 
the existence of such a deal 
Moreover, it seems feat Mr Grigg 
has not fully thought through fee 
consequences of his theory. Are 
we really expected to believe that 
Macmillan obtained guarantees of 
Soviet non-intervention in France 
and Italy in exchange for fee illicit 
handover of some two or three 
thousand White Russian emigres? 

The decision secretly to include 
fee Tsarist officers . among fee 
prisoners to be repatriated was 
settled in Krighiley’s headquarters 
without any means of making 
contact wife fee Soviets or White- 
hall ai a time when higher 
command possessed no knowl- 
edge of fee Cossacks' surrender.

Why visa move 
is deplored 

From Mr Peter Calvocorcssi 
Sir. If fee Government cannot 
organize immigration at 
Heathrow competently (report 
and leading artide. Septe m ber 2) 
it should reorganize it there and 
not remove n. at considerable 
expense, to foreign pans, where it 
will be out of sight and beyond fee 
jurisdiction of English courts. 

This measure is not an attack on 
illegal immigrants. It is an attack 
ou all those coming here from five 
particular countries who are 
(teemed a nuisance simply because 
they are numerous and black. 

It reflects equal discredit on 
ministers who have devised it and 
on those who, we are told, had 
qualms but have not had the guts 
to resign on what is a matter of 
principle, however disguised as 
administrative readjustment. 
Yours faithfully.

From Professor James Coveney 
Sir. The introduction of a visa 
system to regulate fee entry of 
persons from parts of the Third 
World who wish to come to 

Britain for genuine reasons may be 

justified. It is to be hoped, 
however, that such persons will 
not be subjected to excessive delay 
in obtaining their visas. 

Unaccepible delays have been 
reported to us in the delivery of 
visas to fiona. fide students coming 
to Britain from Third World 
countries. One case involves a 
doctor from South Yemen, living 
in Cairo, who was due to attend an 
English-language course in Bristol, 
starting on August 4, prior to 
following a medical training 
course at Bristol University Fac- 
ulty of Medicine. 

He was informed by the British 
Consulate m Cairo two weeks 
before fee course began that his 
visa would be issued after two to 
four weeks' delay. His visa has still 
not been issued and he has missed 
the entire course. 

There is no justification for this 
country to adopt the unfriendly 
and nerve-racking procedures of 
certain other countries.

The Franco- Prussian war appears ! 
to have surprised many. On July 

14 a leading article, entitled "AUs 
Well that Ends Well", concluded 
that "Europe has thus been 
spared the spectacle of a great 
public crime . The follou'ing day 
France declared war. A feu' uveks 
later, with the French defeated at 
Sedan, Napoleon llTs Empire 
replaced by the Republic, and the 
siege of Paris beginning, there 

were two Times correspondents in 
Paris alone, as well as a military 
expert Our Roving Correspondent 
was the English ’bom Vicomtesse 
de Peyronnet. 



PARIS, Tuesday. SepL6 

It is very difficult to gauge fee 
temper of this people — to know 
whether they mean to persist in 
war or not. They are full of 
impulse, and their impulse is one 
thing today, another tomorrow. 
Today they seem to show a firm 
front; but last night a spectator 
would have laughed to scorn the 
notion of a fight or an attempt at 
fighting being made by fee Repub- 
lican Government The people 
were so delighted wife the Repub- 
lic and so disgusted with the 
Imperial Government that two 
ideas, and two only, seemed promi- 
nent in their mind. One was that 
every relic of Imperial role should 
be swept away — everything which 
had the mark of the letter "N" 
upon iL Ail over Paris they were 
knocking down every H N. H and 
every Eagle, and paying little heed 
to the architectural destruction 
which might be committed in the 
process. The Parisians have a 
wonderful taste for initials. Every- 
thing useful or ornamental must be 
initialed. You cannot look into fee 
window of a jeweller^ shop without 
seeing feat half the trinkets form 
initials. Rings and lockets, brace- 
lets and studs are but receptacles 
for an initial. And it seemed as if 
the renovated Republicans would 
disclaim all complicity in fee war 
because it had upon the face of it 
the fatal initial, “N." That was one 
set of ideas which a spectator 
seemed to make sure of. Then there 
was another current which could 
not escape notice. The Republicans 
believe that their Republican fever 
is catching — that America will 
fraternize with them, that Spain 
will come to the rescue, that a 
Republic wiD also be proclaimed in 
Italy, and that Germany, too, is 
Republican at heart Read the Sotr 
of last night, and see if anything 
can be more wonderful. It is a 
specimen of the rest. It declares 
that heroic means have been 
discovered for the salvation of 
France — something to terrify 
Prussia as well as every European 
monarchy. In proclaiming the 
Republic they say. We have saved 
France. How so? Because in 1848 
fee Prussians fraternized wife fee 
Republican enthusiasm of France, 
and they will do so now in 1870. 
They will lqy down their arms; they 
will quit the French soil, King 
William will return to his Augusta, 
and “our Fritz” will have to look to 
his hereditary rights. There is 
something appalling in such 

Today their aspect is much 
firmer and more dignified. They 
are seriously preparing to with- 
stand fee enemy. Whether they 
have any chance of success is 
another matter — but. at least, they 
are getting their powder ready. 
Every hour the wreck of Mac- 
Mahon’s army is pouring in, and 
we are in all the tumult of hasty 
preparation. It is very sad to see 
the tired and travel-stained sol- 
diers pass by. They march without 
order, their feet drag along the 
ground; there is no longer that 
elasticity of step which character- 
izes French troops. Poor fellows, 
they have for the most part escaped 
from the disasters of Sedan, and 
rally instinctively on Paris, reach- 
ing the capital goodness knows 
how, but very weary and 
downhearted. . . But they (the Re- 
publican Government] will make 
peace fast enough. They have 
assumed the Government to save 
the country and to beat the enemy. 
They have the will to fight, but 
they have not the energy to do so 
with an exhau s ted exchequer, wife 
a discomfited army, nn d with 
divided counsels. On Sunday there 
is the delirium of delight, the 
people are so delighted at the 
change of Government that fee 
disaster to their arms goes for 
nothing - a bagatelle scarce wor- 
thy of a thought On Monday the 
delight tones down, but the people 
show an immoderate disgust of 
everything on which the Imperial 
seal has been set. They knock down 
even the medals, or pictures of 
medals won at the International 
Exhibition, because they bear the 
effigy of the Emperor. It is a 
wonder they do not throw their 
coin into the melting pot because it 
bears the image and super&crqition 
of Caesar. It is evident that it 
would not take much to make them 
disown the war because of the 
Imperial hand in it. But no, they 
cannot do that, because it would be 
a confession of weakness. . .

Two expert committees of high «tanHl«g 
have just begun a serious re-examination 
of ihe theology behind die ordination of 
women. In an argument which has been 
dominated so for by politics and 
practicalities, this return to fundamentals 
may be useful, at least in clarifying what is 
at stake. 

It never was a very happy prospect for 
the Church of Fngfand to be going down 
this road by majority decision when there 
was no consensus, even about the nature 
of the disagreement. 

One such committee is the Anglican- 
Roman Catholic International Commis- 
sion (ARCIC), which has just completed &

Mr P-F. O'Conor 

and Miss V.E. Marriott 

The engagement is announced 

pienaiy meeting at I is no secret 
that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr 
Robert Runde, was presang for a joint 
theological study with the Roman Cbfoofic 
Church which would deal with the 
underlying issues, and would have liked a 
separate body from ARCIC to handle it 

The ARClCs brief from the Roman side 
is to study the ecumenical implications, 
rather than to examine the doctrine itself; 
but ARCIC appears to have decided that 
the doctrinal points will have to studied 
anyway, otherwise the ecumenical Ques- 
tions cannot be answered. In other words 
to decide how relations between the two 
churches are affected by the ordination of 
women in one of them, it is first necessary 
to decide what fundamentals, if any, are at 
stake. And that opens the door. 

The second committee has been so. op 
by the House of Bishops of the Church of 
England, as a result of the July d e ba te in 
the general synod. The bishops agre ed to 
tatr, an the vexed Questions m*™* their 
wing, and to report bade in February - a re- 
port which may well turn out to be a 
bolding one. 

just as ARCIC finds it cannot answer 
the inter-church questions without study- 
ing the primary issues, so die House of 
Bishops a ppear s to have decided similarly 
concerning tire internal Church of England 
con tr o v ers y . 

In order to say how and whether parts of 
the Chureh of England with women prieste 
could co-exist with parts without them, ft 

also has to consider what fundamentals, if 
any, are at stake. The Honse of Bishops has 
a further committee studying the 
practicalities rather than the theory, but ft 
is unlikely these two committees can keep 
their work in water-tight compartments. 

The ckrse relationship between the 
House of Bishop's exercise and the ARCIC 

one is shown by the presence in both of the 

Bishop of Kensington, the Right Rev 
Mark Santer, the Anglican co-chairman of 
ARCIC Tbe Bishop of London. Dr 
Graham Leonard, is in the bishops* 
committee too, ami one of the main planks 
of his argument to the synod in July was 
that put try Cardinal WtUebrands, of the 

Vatican, to the Archbishop of Canterbury - 
in the context of ARCIC. So these two 
exercises are thoroughly interwoven. 

In tbe past the arguments about women 
priests have been about such things .as the 
limits of the church's authority to change 
Holy Orders, and the New Testament ' 
evidence. AH tbe signs suggest that both 
these new theological investigations will 
concentrate elsewhere, rather than spend 
mo much time going down those wdl worn 

Current interest is directed more to- 
wards the argument by sexual analogy. 
And as has been noted before, this feeds 
into general questions much debated in 
■a-mUr society concerning male-female 
relationships, and sexual role 

It states, essentially, that as the relation- 
ship between Christ and the church is 
analogous to tbe relationship b e twe en 
husband and wife, it is not a m atter of 
indifference what gender the priesthood is, 
as the priesthood occupies a symbolic 
place in the relationship between Christ 
and tbe church (albeit not easy to 

At this point in the argument the re is an 
open frontier with another c urrent 
theological contr o v ers y, that inside tbe 
Roman Catholic Church concerning sex- 
ual ethics 

If there is a natural order go ve rn ing 
maiwiMi and -femaleness, *h*n there is a 

natural law governing bow male and 
female should retaie,-particulariyhow they 
should refete sexually. Moral theologians 
like him have begun to discuss the ethics of 
sexual relations without reference to 
natura l law arguments, and the church 
authorities have stepped in to mast that 
they have gone astray. - 

It is hardly surprismg that the one 
Anglican theologian whose thinking 0& 
sexual ethics is closest to tins official 
Roman Catholic position is the Bishop of 
London. He is for natural taw on sexual 
ethics, for natural order onr the ordination 
of women. He is, it is no coincidence, the 
Churrfi of England’s, leading Anglo- 

Sexual ethics feeds- hade into the 
ordination of -women question, in foe 
framework of natural taw and natural 
order. If the pattern ofbehavioiir between, 
husband and wife, iadudfry sexual 
activitiy, is entirely up to them, free of any 
moral restrictions from, natural few, then 
the husband and wife analogy for Christ 
mid the church would prqve nothing. 

So two people can make of a sexual 
relationship absolutely whatever they, 
wish, as the prevailing wisdom in secular 
society says they may. and therefore sex 
roles are entirely variable, and reversible 
and interchangeable at will. It is a useless 
model on winch to bu3d-an analogy. And 
it could not be used, therefore, to prohibit 
women priests. 

If they go this way into the argument the 
two- expert committees may eventually 
reach an unfortunate impasse, for there is 
no wary they can themselves resolve the 
underlying dash between the two systems 
of moral philosophy,, for. and against 
natural taw. ^ 

But it is a diflerentand potentially more 
creative place to come to rest than foe 
pr es en t yes-we-caa, no-we-cannot stale- 
mate on women priests. And it-couid help 
to move the Church of Engfend closer 
towards, or further away from/lhe elusive 
consensus which has been lacking so tar. 
The direction of what movement will, in 
the eod, decide the outcome.'

Most famous for her novels, Nancy Mitford was also a prolific journalist. In this piece, 
first published in 1968 , she has a fresh and teasing go at changes in our language 

In defence of the Queen’s English 

Rip van Winkle was away for 20 
years when he returned be found 
that he was no longer governed by. 
Good King George III but was an 
American subject: the world bad 
completely changed and bis friends- 
were ail gone. 

I have been away 23 years when I 
return lam no longer governed by 
Good King George VI; I realize that - 
I am an American subject and that 
the world has completely dumped; 
but my friends are all prominent. 
Admittedly some are only prom- 
inent as failures or traitors, but very 
few have sunk into oblivion. 

My generation, which got off to 
such a poor start in the Twenties, 
has finished quite honourably. Who 
would ever have suspected it? 
Certainly not the grown-ups who 
loathed our short skirts, 
faces, drugging friends, wild parties 
and general bloody-mindedness. 

I well remember my father tum- 
inga now respected Tory squire out 
of the house for saying that, in his 
view. Nuise Cavell was a spy. Our 
contempt for anybody over 30 and 
for their heroes knew no bounds; 
our laughter crackled like thorns 
beneath the pot at the mere thought 
of such fashionable writers as 
Kipling. Masefield, Galsworthy and 
Barrie: in the world of art our 
favourite butt was Mannings. Had 
we known that posterity was to 
crown him with thousands of 
guineas hi the sale-room we would 
have been surprised indeed. 

The vernacular has changed 
considerably during the last 23 
years. One might suppose that this 
is due to a desire to commune even 
more deeply with our overlords but, 
although 1 am not very conversant 
with American, it seems to me that 
there is a certain native wildness 
about the changes and that they do 
not all come from the West 

Pronunciation has always varied 
from one generation to another and 
the Victorians talked differently 
from us. For instance, they often put 
an T before *a\ “He is not a

phrase pregnant with meaning in 
the days before one called a spade a

Nancy Mitford photographed at her house In Paris: ‘Look it np in a dictionary* 

“Dad" and “dud" are pro- 
nounced the same (and are no doubt 
considered to be so). “He is mud, 
bud and dangerous to know." 
“Pretty" and “poetry" have 
changed for the second time in my 
life; my parents said “prooey" and 
“poytry"; we said them as they are 
spelt and now I hear “prettee" and 

-Other innovations I notice are: 
“cabimit", “officers" for “offices" 
“lomch" for “launch", “INcrease" 
“WestMINster”, “hostESS". 
“aciOR", “Azian" for “Asiatic" 
sounds odd, and I notice that Sir 
Alec Douglas-Home still says 
“Asiatic" and also “Kenya" instead 
of the fashionable “Kennya". 

Most of the BBC announcers use 
the new pronunciations, but they 

sound like Englishmen and their 
voices bear no relationship to the 
gargling and gurgling of the Voice of 
America. Mr Alvarly Dell (this is 
how I always thought it was spelt 
until I received my galleys from the 
editor) speaks English as I have 
been used to hearing it. 

If pronunciation does not matter 
very much, words used in a wrong 
context and faults of syntax do. 
G.M. Young used to say, let the 
English language take care of itself 
by which I think he meant don't 
fuss, the easy, simple way of saying 
something is the nght way. 

Too often one hears people on the 
wndss beginning an elaborate sen- 
tence — they flounder about for a bit 
and then break off with “you 
know". There is too much fuss and 

too much overemphasis. “Nobody 
has a good word for the PM" is 
blown up into “The PM is under- 
going character assassination"; 
“nowadays" is “this day and age"; 
people don't say anymore, they 
claim; a book is a book-length work. 

“This" has a horrid new role; it is 
nearly always used instead of “that" 
and often instead of “it" or “so". It 
creeps in everywhere, giving our 
language a curious hissing sound; it 
also serves the cause of over- 
emphasis: “This I believe to be 
true" instead of “I think so." What 
is that little word “up” up to? 
People don't meet, they meet up; 
they also think up, cook up, read up. 

“Personal" is another intruder 
“Mr Wilson's personal dog", “I 
wrote him a personal letter,” “Liz 

Burton's personal friend". “In fact" 
has its uses but not as a prelude to 
every sentence, and ! can't see that 
“well now" adds very much. “Well 
now. we have with us in the studio

head of his college: "I have arrived 
in Oxford and been advised to 
contact you." Reply. “You may

has noL" By the way, why are 
undergraduates always called stu- 
dents. To me a student is somebody 
in a Russian play. . 

Mr Roy Jenkins speaks attractive 
English and I was sorry to bear him 
saying “we don't have” for "we 
haven't got". I first heard this usage 
about 10 years ago at Manchester 
airport: “We don't have The 
Times." In any case it doesn't mean 
the same thing: “We don't have The 
Times, it's so horrid about Aunt 
Sally." The girl at Manchester 
meant The Times was sold oul 

The “basic" mentality is a real 
danger to our language. For some 
reason. Sir Winston Church took an 
interest in basic English and he once 
asked the late Duke of Devonshire 
to help him to popularize it. The 
Duke said: *“What is to hell with 
the Pope' in base?” They looked in 1 
the glossary. “The Holy Father 
must go to a hot spot." The Duke 
said that was not good enough. 

Of course it's not good enough, 
but basic is spreading like a spot of 1

people are educated now — we know

schools, their buildings, their milk, 
their levels and their leaving age; if 
the scholars don’t know what 
“ineluctable" means, I said furi- 
ously, they can go home and look in 
the dictionary. 

It is all great nonsense. So far the 
basic-mongers have left Shake-

Mai Zetterimg’s first feature 
film Loving Couples, m 1964, 
was adapted from a novel by 
Agnes von Krusensfieroa. 
The scandal the film created 
in Cannes paralleled the 
outrage when von 
Krusensfierna's novel had 
begun to appear in Sweden 
14 years before. 

A couple of years later 
Night Gains. from 
Zetterling's own novel, 
caused riot in Venice: all but 
the jury and press were 
forbidden to see iu and the 
posters, bearing a Leonardo 
drawing, were blacked out 

Now. in Amorosa, 
Zetterling attempts a film 
portrait of this sympathetic 
spirit who died in 1940, the 
year before her own stage 
debut at 16. A compulsive 
writer from childhood, Agnes 
rebelled against the hypocrisy 
and emotional repr«skra of 
her aristocratic family. 

Cronically neorotic, she 
found a nurse, lover and 
Svengali in her much older 
-husband David Sprenger. 
Sprenger appears to have 
interpreted some of the more 
sensational, passages of 
perversion into her novels, 
which shattered taboos about ' 
sex and -the family. 

Zetterling portrays then- 
escalating fidie & deux with 
terrible intensities. Agnes, 
played by the Finnish actress 
Slina Ekblad is prey to 
visions as hysteria: the role of 
Sprenger reveals facets of

Malcolm is an comedy 
about a do-it-yourself tech- 
nological wizard who suffers 
from severe social and emo- 
tional retardation. Fulfilment 
comes when he fells in with a 
dedicated criminal and 
adapts his tallent to bank 


robbery. The home-grown 
special effects have much 
more charm and humour 
than the block buster hi-tech 
of Hollywood. 

There is more than a touch 
of misogamy in Ruthless 
People, a fast and fierce black 
comedy from Hollywood di- 
rected by Jim Abraham and 
David and Jerry Zucker. It 
has the merit of a single, 
strong comic idea (borrowed 
vaguely from O. Henry). 

Just as Danny de Vito is 
about to murder his mon- 
strous wife (Bette Midler), 
she is kidnapped by a couple 
of inept amateurs. The kid- 
nappers rapidly regret their 
crime as the happy husband 
refuses their clearance sale 
offers for this <xiious and 
obstreperous victim. 

And so to the 
Russians. Roman Balhjan's 
Protect Me My Talisman is a 
curious essay about a 
contemporary couple whose 
lives are disrupted by a poet 
under the influence- of Push-

The Broken Thigh 

Drill Hall 

The Broken 7 high is an 
adaptation, fry Tara Arts, of 
the mythological Indian epic, 
The Mahabharata. whose 
scope is nothing less than the 
story of the world, as Peter 
Brook demonstrated not so 
long ago at Avignon. 

Being a myth, it deals with 
this daunting largeness of 
experience by means of signs, 
allegories and archetypes. The 
beings who people this huge 
drama are somewhere be- 
tween gods and humans, 
characters of extravagant 
emotional compass and range 
who combine a daemonic 
capacity for the mischevious 
with a mortal taste for 

This bloody and remorse- 
less saga revels in the pic- 
turesque grandeur of combat 
and challenge and ordeal. At 
its end, we have witnessed a 
kind of Ragnarok. a human 
apocalypse which has laid the 
puzzle of life out in front of us 
tike a map. 

Although the drama is 
framed and manipulated by 
the god Krishna, who is telling 
the callow boy, Dinjaya, how 
be came into the world, the 
play’s central character is the 
boy’s father, Duryodhana, 
who is half arrogant chivalric 
warlord and half celestial 
troublemaker. It is he who sets 
things in a. broil, dividing a 
house of capricious prince- 
lings against each other, and 
stirring up the cupidity and 
greed which is to haunt 

Tara Arts stage this moral 
pageant with enormous 
flamboyance and energy, and 
the little arena of the Drill Hall 
swells with vivid spectacle and 
primary-colour magic Glow- 
ing red and blue lights pick out 
the savage feces and whirtygig 
combats-of the last conflict. 

Duryodhana and his fickle 
princely ally are played by 
women, who invest their war- 
like roles with a luxurious 
caricature of male pride. The 
presiding deity, Krishna, is a 
flashing-eyed wizard of harsh 
aphoristic wisdom. The 
squabbling, fighting and 
scheming are done with a. 
loud, fierce relish — a cartoon 
of human feeling rather than a 
literal representation. The 
director is Jatinder Venna. 

Set against the imperative 
of the tale, my reservations are 
quibbling. The evening is 20 
minutes too long and, for 
those not familiar with the 
material, too studded with 
names and detail to be 
dramatically comfortable.

make notes 1 would not reuse

Promenade concerts 

Albert Hall/Radio 3 

It was perhaps as a celebratory 
gesture to the BBC Scottish 
Symphony Orchestra's 50th 
anniversary season that Kun 
Woo Paik chose Ravel's G 
major Concerto to play with 
them on Friday night . 

Scarcely since Mozart has a 
piano concerto bowed so gen- 
erously in the direction of its 
assorted woodwind soloists. 
The players certainly justified 
the spotlight shone on them in 
the first of their orchestra's 
two Prom appearances this 

The finely drawn oboe of 
the first movement, the 
strong, long breaths of the cor 
anglais in the second, and the 
nicely controlled trombone 
slides in the finale were all 
exuberantly cued in by Jerzy 

But it was still very much 
Kun Woo Paik's concerto. As 
a Ravel player par excellence. 
his fingotips can round out 
even the most percussive 
passagework so that it almost 
tidies by. He knows, too, how 
to create brilliance by patterns 
of light and shade as moch as 
by speed, and his training with 
Kempff has equipped him 
with that pearly evenness of 
trill and tremolando so fit for 
camouflage with Ravel's harp 

Shostakovich’s First Sym- 
phony. that masterpiece of 
orchestration by which the 19- 
year-old composer proved 
himself was an equally en- 
couraging testimonial to the 
relationship between orch- 
estra and conductor. 

Maksymiuk's string train- 
ing was very much in evidence 
as the body of violins antici- 
pated the piano's taking in 
hand of the Scherzo’s threat- 
ening anarchy. And the 
broadening and lengthening of

towards the finale's last great 
battle of rhythm with melody. 

For their second Pram concert 
with their principal conduc- 
tor, Jerzy Maksymiuk, the 
BBC Scottish Symphony Or- 
chestra presented themselves 
as patron of contemporary 
orchestral music in Scotland. 

The orchestra has been 
loyally performing the works 
of John Maxwell Geddes for 
20 years, and they brought | 
with them his Voyager ; 
commissioned by the BBC ' 
and first performed on the 
orchestra’s home ground at 
their 50th anniversary concert 
last November. 

Tippett was not the only 
composer to be inspired by the 
return of Halley’s comet. But, 
unlike The Mask of Time, 
Geddes's Voyager flashes past 
in a fleet 10 minutes, as vivid 
and elusive as the comet itself.

Mozart's Oboe Concerto in

The meeting of Maurice 
Bourgue's reedy, vigorously 
physical oboe playing with 
Maksymiuk’s typically jaunty, 
purposeful chamber-orches-

robust performance. 

It had a bracing effect after a 
secure but also uncharacteris- 
tically safe reading of 
Sibelius's Third Symphony, in 
which the composer's varied

groupings of notes were 
subordinated to smooth, 
strong contours.

The 1 1 -piece band offered an 
original lightweight pop vari-

suffered from indecisive mu-

The Potato 5 was fer more 
capable, but seemed dread- 
fully hidebound by the ska 
legacy, as to hear them play a 
song like “Western Special", 
rigorously recreating the 
sound of the Specials or early 
Madness — which was itself a 
feteful recreation of the work 
of original artists such as 
Prince Buster— was like watch-

Left on 
tiie shelf 

What, when il is unwrapped 
and set up in the market place, 
is a Literature Centre? I doubt 
whether I would have to ask 
such a question in France, 
where it would haw been 
unthinkable for one of 
Malraux's Maison de Culture 
not to have devoted much of 
its resources to words. 

In Britain, though, we do 
things differently, which is 
why it was not until 1983 that 
the Edinburgh International 
Festival had a Book Fair. And 
that takes place only every 
other year. 

I asked the question in the 
first place because a sharp and 
determined lady called Rose- 
mary Slones managed to get 
the GLC. when that organiza- 
tion was tottering on its last 
legs, to allow her to open 
BOOKSPACE in what had 
been the Grand Restaurant in 
the Royal Festival Hall. 

Into BOOKSPACE. at a 
high speed with much ingenu- 
ity. Ms Stones poured ex- 
hibitions. lectures, poetry 
readings and like. Quite 
quickly the space began to 
assume a shape and at- 
mosphere. in early March for 
instance, there was an evening 
with Two Poets From the 
Pages of the London Review of 
Books, Fiona Piit-Keihley and 
Hugo Williams, with Give 
James in the chair. Three 
nights later there was A Trib- 
ute to Geoffrey Grigsoa in 
which Paul Bailey, Richard 
Boston, Peter Levi, Philip 
Oakes and P. J. Kavanagh 
look pari. There was also a 
fascinating exhibition of 
books set in London. 

When the GLC came to an 
end. BOOKSPACE followed 
quickly after, though the 
bookshop element was al- 
lowed to linger for a little 
longer at a lower level (of the 
building not the brow). It was 
alleged that Richard Pulford. 
the General Director of the 
South Bank Board, was 
particularly unsympathetic to 
Literature when Deputy Sec- 
retary-General of the Arts 
Council, while Nicolas Snow- 
man. the Ariistic Director, 
was more interested in Boulez 
and Berg than Balzac and 

To offset this a little, the 
South Bank Board itself con- 
tains, among others. Simon 
Jenkins. Nigel Walmsley, 
Lord Rayne and Sir Roy 
Strong, all of whom have 
shown favourable reactions to 
books from time to time; and 
Lord Weidenfeld. who pub- 
lished and lives by them. It 
was the last-named. I suspect, 
who ensured that Rosemary 
Stones and her colleague, Ira 
O’Flaherty, were given a three 
month remit to write a pro- 
posal for a South Bank Lit- 
erature Centre. 

There had been quite a lot 
of protest when BOOKSPACE 
was forced to close. The Arts 
Council decided that it could 
no longer keep its excellent 
Poetry Library at 105 Picca- 
dilly. The South Bank Lit- 
erature Centre would surely be 
an ideal alternative home. 

In France no such struggle 
would have had to take place 
over the establishment of the 
Centre. The Centre Pompidou 
has an open-access library, the 
Bibliolbeque Publique 
d’ Information, that is one of 
the principal features of that 
exciting complex. Boulez 
might be in the basement, but 
books for all are on the first 
floor on bright green shelves. 

Needless to say. the Stones 
proposal strongly recom- 
mended the establishment of a 
Literature Centre. It was 
submitted to the South Bank 
Board over two months ago, 
since when nothing has been 
heard of its progress, not even 
by its two authors. The Grand 
Restaurant, meanwhile, is 
reverting to its former use. 
Literature needs such a focal 
point just as much as the other 
arts. BOOKSPACE’s ability to 
celebrate Geoffrey Grigson or 
Christopher Isherwood im- 
.mediately after their deaths 
shows just how much a great 
capital city, and one renowned 
for its arts , requires such a 
place. Or is Literature once 
more to be given the same sort 
of treatment it was in the Arts 

Council's The Glory of the 
Garden and relegated to the 
outer suburbs?

Enthronement of Archbishop Tutu 

No move 

Dr Runcie ‘breaks law’ inCabTnet 
in Cape Town speech changes 

In a blaze of Anglican ritual 
and to the sound of joyous 
African singing and trium- 
phant trumpet fanfares, the 
Most Revd Desmond Mpilo 
Tutu was enthroned yesterday 
as the eleventh, and first 
black. Lord Archbishop of 
Cape Town, and head of the 
Anglican church in southern 

In his enthronement speech, 
or charge, from the pulpit of 
the Cathedral Church of St 
George the Martyr. Arch- 
bishop Tutu told some 1400 
invited guests, in which mem- 
bers of the Government were 
conspicuous by their absence, 
that the Church was bound to 
lake the side of the poor, the 
hungry and the powerless. 

After the enthronement the 
Archbishop of Canterbury. Dr 
Robert Runcie, told some 
] 0.000 people at a mass open- 
air celebration of the Eu- 
charist: “Here in South Africa 
an old order is dying. As we 
watch, we experience all the 
agony, doubt and uncertainty 
which surround death." 

Dr Runcie appeared to 
break South African law by 
quoting from the speech made 

Front Michael Hornsby, Cape Town 
tl bv Mr Nelson Mandela, the bi 

by Mr Nelson Mandela, the 
jailed leader of the African 
National Congress, at his trial 
in 1964. in which be spoke of 
having fought "against white 
domination and against black 
domination" for the "ideal of 
a democratic and free soc- 
■ iety". 

Neither attendance at the 
Eucharist celebration, held in 
a showground on the outskirts 
of Cape Town, nor the ir- 
repressible enthusiasm of 
massed African choirs, ap- 
peared much dampened by 
rainy, blustery weather. 

Preaching a sermon from a 
blue and white canopied dais. 
Dr Runcie. who is the head of 
the world-wide Anglican 
communion of some 65 mil- 
lion people, said he did not 
want “to speak smooth words 
of peace where there is no 

He went on to say, however, 
that “as no system based on 
brutal repression can endure, 
so no change achieved by 
violence can escape its damag- 
ing infection. These are the 
lessons of history. They are 
the message of the Cross”. 

Dr Runcie described Arch- 

Archbishop Totn waving to well-wisbers as he arrives fur his 
enthronement at St George’s Cathedral yesterday.

bishop Tutu, who won the 
Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, as 
“a man of love, vision and 
peace, whose valiant stand for 
Christ has brought such life 
and hope to South Africa, and 
for beyond”. 

Although no members of 
the Government were invited 
to the enthronement cere- 
mony, Archbishop Tutu asked 
die congregation to pray for 
President P.W. Botha "and 
those in authority under him”. 

Archbishop Tutu said be 
abhorred violence, both "the 
violence of an unjust system 
such as apartheid and that of 
those who want to overthrow 
it”, but whiles had to remem- 
ber that organizations like the 
outlawed African National 
Congress only “opted for the 
armed struggle” after they 
were banned. 

Archbishop Tutu insisted 
he would tell the world. “Put 
your sanctions plans on hold”, ; 
if President Botha would end 
the emergency, remove troops 
from the townships, free de- 
tainees and political prisoners, 
and open negotiations with 
“the authentic representatives

In the meantime, the onus 
was was on those opposed to 
sanctions to “provide us with 
a viable non-violent strategy 
to force the dismantling of 
apartheid. Remember that the 
Government has rejected gen- 
tle persuasion”.

Gatt warns 
trade curbs 

Geneva (AP) — World mer- 
chandise trade grew in volume 
by an estimated 3 per cent last 
year and should expand even 
more rapidly in 1986, but 
current trade policies invite a 
long-term economic decline, 
the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade said 

The Gatt Secretariat's an- 
nual review of world com- 
merce forecast a 3.5 per cent 
rise in trade volume this year. 

But it gave warning against 
a continued widening of gov- 
ernment measures opposing 
free trade, particularly sub- 
sidies, quotas and market 
sharing agreements. A further 
trend toward such restrictions 
“would cripple efforts to deal 
with such pressing problems 
as servicing debts, creating 
jobs and promoting economic 

In value terms, goods trade 
grew by 1 percent in 1985, less 
than the volume expansion 
because of the strong dollar. 
The study predicted an 8 per 
cent rise this year due to the 
fall of the dollar. 

Last year’s volume figure 
was below the 9.5 per cent 
expansion in 1984, a year of 
strong economic recovery. 
Lagging growth in • 1985 
growth was a “key factor” in 
crimping trade expansion. 

Merchandise trade last year 
was buoyant only in manufac- 
tured products, growing by 6 
per cent, it said. Sharp de- 
clines were registered in the 
value Of food, fuel and non-! 
ferrous metals exports. 

; Most developing countries 
showed “particularly 
disappointing” performances 
as the decline in the Third 
World's share of world trade, 
which has been foiling since 
1981, quickened. 

• Export earnings of develop- 
ing countries dropped 5.5 per 
cent, mainly due to felling 
world market prices for fuels 
and other commodities. Im- 
ports fell 6.5 per cent. 

Pressure for import restrio- 
■ tions was partly fuelled by 
large trade imbalances be- 
tween the world’s three lead- 
ing trading nations — the 
United States, West Germany 
and Japan. The trade gap grew 

forther in the first half of 1 986, 
it said, with a widening US 
trade deficit set . against 
increasing surpluses in Japan 
and West Germany. 

Meanwhile, the study said, 
efforts in developed countries 
to protect formers and textile 
and clothing manufacturers 
have shown the “bankruptcy” 
of subsidies. 

• Lisbon (Reuter) The 
EEC, US, Canada and Japan 
agreed after two days of talks 
in Sintra that trade in agri- 
culture and service industries 
should be liberalized But they 
recognised the issue could 
divide later Gati talks. 

They also agreed that the 
inclusion in Gatt ofservice 
industries, which represent 
about 25 per cent of tne 
world's economic activity, 
should not be delayed 

Guinness faces 


Mr Ernest Saunders,’ the 
chieT of Guinness, is feeing the 
most crucial week of his career 
as he attempts to head off a 
revolt by institutional 
shareholders over his plans for 
a new board structure after the 
takeover of Distillers. 

A stormy meeting is sched- 
uled for- Thursday- when .Mr 
Saunders will be 
shareholders to give him the 
posts of both duef executive 
mid chairman. 

But he feces a furious 
backlash, particularly from 
the Scottish financi al commu- 
nity, angry that he appears to 
have reneged on promises, 
made at the time of the 
bilHon bid for Distillers, to 
appoint as chairman Sir 
Thomas Risk, Governor of 
the Bank of Scotland 

Sir Thomas revived the 
controversy last week by say- 
ing publicly he was not party 
to the derision by Mr 
Saunders and the Guinness 
board to scrap his appoint- 
ment, a version of events 
different from .that put oat by 

Sir Thomas said he was 
pressed into making the state- 
ment by institutions, indicat- 
ing the unprecedented 
strength of feeling over the 

Mr Saunders appears con- 
fident that his investment 
advisers have put together 
sufficient support, in the City 

By Cliff Fettham 

to ensure that the extraor- 
dinary shareholders' meeting 
swings his way. • 

However, there are signs 
that- he has a fierce fight on his 
hands. Some reports suggest 
that of the top 15 institutional 
-shareholders who control 
more than 35 per cent of the 
company, only three are_pro- 
pared to back Mr Saunders. 

- Five Scottish institutional 
investors* including Scottish 
Widows, Scottish- Amicable 
and Scottish Mutual, who 
control around 3-5 per cent 
between them, are ranged 
a gainst hfm 

Already, Mr Raymond 
Johnstone, a friend of Sir 
Thomas and a director of 
Scottish Amicable as wdl as 
chairman of Murray 
Johnstone, the Glasgow 
investment managers, has 
urged shareholders to vote, 
against the proposals. 

He is angry that the plan to 
create a new board under Sir 
Thomas was embodied in 
circulars sent out by Guinness 
during its long battle for 
Distillers. He says this was 
dearly done to win the sup- 
port of Scottish investors who 
were concerned that Distillers 
would be controlled from 
London after the takeover. 

He says the derision by 
Guinness to scrap these plans 
and install Mr -Saunders as 
chief executive and diairman 
could only, be justified, “if 

events had happened which 
were beyond its reasonable 
contemplation at the time of 
The offer." 

“J am not yet aware of any 
such events or of sufficient 
evidence appearing to con- 
vince me that following the 
acquisition of control of 
Distillers, the Guinness board 
made a valid attempt to 
implement these commit- 
ments on board and manage- 
- ment structure,” he said. 

The institutions, winch are 
more accustomed to lobbying 
companies privately rather 
than indulging in a full- 
blooded slanging match, are 
set to break with tradition at 
the meeting, at the Mount 
Royal Hotel in London, as Mr 
Saunders puts his case. 
Guinness has said it felt the 
original board structure would 
have been too unwieldy . 

Mr Saunders is also likely to 
face stiff questioning over the 
location of the head office of 
the new super-group. He had 
said it would be based in 
Edinburgh, although he re- 
cently pointed to the need to 
maintain a presence in 

One institution, Scottish 
Amicable, is likely to want to 
know exactly what is happen- 
ing on this front. 

Mr Saunders needs a SO per 
cent vote of support from 
.shareholders to- pass his pro- 

John Lewis leads 
retail sales boom 

By Our Industrial Staff 

August retail sales look 
likely to return to the strongly 
rising trend of the first six 
months of thisyear after July’s 
fall from the. June peak. The 
July dip, provisionally put at 
12 per cent down after June's 
3.6 per cent .rise, is expected to 
be confirmed m final figures 
due out today . from the 
Depar tm en t of Trade and 

, The Retail Consortium, the 
trade body for the majority of 
retailers, is optimistic about 
the' level of August sales. It 
already seems justified by the 
latest analyses at the John 
Lewis Partnership for its 21 
department stores which in 
the week ended August 30 saw 
a rise in sales value of213 per 

This was the biggest rise in 
August for years and was more 
on- the scale expected at the 
three annual peaks of Christ- 
mas run-up and - seasonal 

clearance safes in January and 

In the previous week, sales 
in the department stores were 
up 14.5 per cent and during 
the earlier part of the month 
were above 11 per cent. The 
rise in real terms can be 
ga u g ed by making, allowance 
for the rate of inflation in 
goods sold in the stores. 

This is now running at 
about 2.4 per cent against the 
sales improvement for the 
month ofabout 1 4 per cent, so 
growth in real terms at John 
Lewis in August should prove 
in excess of 1 0 per cent 

There could be some special 
factors in the final boom week. 
The increase is over a week 
last year which produced 
comparatively low sales in- 
creases and, according to Mr 
Ian -Anderson, director of 
trading for department stores. 
Two London stores were also 
open on a Saturday afternoon, 
unlikelast year.

‘still good 9 

By Onr Industrial Staff 

Pessimism about another 
economic recession was 
stamped on yesterday by Mr 
David Nickson, president of 
the Confederation of British 
Industry while admitting that 
his organisation was among 
those which had t rimm ed 
growth forecasts. 

He warned: “We must not 
let pessimistic talk of another 
recession turn into a self 
fulfilling prophecy. What we 
are talking about is a slower 
rate of growth and not a 

Lower oQ and commodity 
prices, together with low infla- 
tion in Britain and other 
industrial countries, offered 
big opportunities, he main- 
tained. “We must grasp this 
chance to stimulate output 
and win more trade.”

Oil consumption rises 2.5% 

By David Young, Energy 
The fell in the world oil 
price provoked by the 
Organisation of. Petroleum 
Exporting Countries, has had 
its desired effect with 
consumption rising in the first 
seven months of this year and 
so pushing prices up again. 

The latest statistics from the 
International Energy Agency 
show that up to the end of 
August, consumption of op in 
the western industrialized 
world has risen by 2_5 per cent 
with the surge in consumption 
coming in the second quarter 
of the year when the frill 
effects of the lower price 
filtered through to consumers. 

Opec is due to meet on 
October 6 to review its new 
quota agreement which came 
into force a week ago 
Many traders expect that in 
the run-up to the Opec meet- 
ing, prices will rise towards, 
and possibly beyond, the $18 
dollar mark once the effects of

the new quota system are seen 
in the market place and once 
consuming nations are con- 
vinced that Opec is prepared 
to stick to its new agreement. 

However, the IfcA figures 
show that stocks in the indus- 
trialized countries have risen 
at a higher rale than consump- 
tion and that consuming na- 
tions may' be in a stronger 
position to keep demand in 
the market place for imported 
crude oil at a level which will 
keep prices down. 

The figures show that while 
stocks held by the leading oil 
companies have not varied 
dramatically from levels im- 
mediately after the first oil 
crisis-in 1 973 — down from 80 
days’ supply to 72 days’ — 
strategic stocks held by gov- 
ernments in the Organisation 
for - Economic Co-operation 
and Development countries 
have risen from less than the 
equivalent of a million barrels 
a day consumption to an 
average of 22 days supplies.

Shooting Box is bang on 

target for franchising 

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 

The crack of 
shattering day pigeons is 
signaling a new route to 
profit in the co untry side. 

David Dwncmnbe, 30, had 
been, mainly fanning on die 
300-aoe estate at OM Manor 
Park, new MUtn Keynes, 
Bedfordshire, which belongs 
to his family. 

Some . additional income 
came from letting out two 
lakes for fishing, but now he 
has just spent £10,000 and a 
lot of hard work creating a 
noting lodge out of old 
faMfiags so that he can 
join The Shooting Box, one of 
Britain’s latest and most un- 
nsual franchise chains. 

So for there are seven 
Shooting Boxes, six of them 
franchised out by Lance

trader and then former. He 
developed the formula,

By Onr Industrial Editor 

Women who usually look 
for jobs whh existing busi- 
nesses may be wooed by the 
Government into becoming 
small business entrepreneurs. 

Mr David Trippier. min- 
ister for small businesses at 
the Department of Employ- 
ment. believes this plan could 
have a big impact on un- 
employment figures. 

Mr Trippier is considering 
backing research on diverting 
women's work talents into 
entrepreneurial fields. 

The Government has said 
the percentage of unemployed 
remains high not only because 
school-leavers outnumber 
those retiring but because 
more women want to work. 
The problem is that too many 
look for jobs, often part-time, 
with existing businesses. 

Instead of returning to the 
jobs market 10 work for 
someone else, the idea is that 
they should employ others. 

When the Government's 
£40-a-week-for-a-ycar Enter- 
prise Allowance Scheme was* 
launched in mid-1983, 15 per 
cent of applicants were 
women. Thai proportion has 
risen 10 25 per cent. 

Two out of three going 
through the scheme are 
succeeding. And for every 100 
new enterprises that survived, 
99 additional jobs were cre- 
ated. This means (bat when 
the number of EAS places 
rises 10 100,000 next April, 
66,000 enterprises should sur- 
vive with virtually double that 
number of jobs created. 

The research programme 
being considered by Mr 
Trippier would try to establish 
what areas of business would 
appeal to women, such as the 
service sectors, including tour- 
ism. It is likely to look into 
'other factors, such as training 
and subsequent support and 
the needs and characteristics 
of women entrepreneurs. 

Another possibility is that 
more women will be recruited 
as small business counsellors 
into the Government’s small 
firms service. There are three 
at present — 1 per cent of the 
national counselling strength. 
Mr Trippier will be encourag- 
ing more women board mem- 
bers at local enterprise 
agencies around the country. 

Women in Enterprise, an 
Industry Year initiative, has 
been looking at ways to 
encourage more women to 
become entrepreneurs. Fe- 
male entrepreneurs in Britain 
seem to encounter more prob- 
lems in setting up and 
developing their own busi- 
nesses and W1E wants addi- 
tional research. 

In the United States be- 
tween 1977 and 1980 the 
number of small businesses 
owned by women increased try 
a third. A similar trend is 
emerging in Britain: about 6 
per cent of small businesses 
last year were owned by

Treasury to cut £4bn off spending bids 

By Davto. Smith, £a»oiiiics Corresptwbdent 

Mr John MacGregor, tbe 

Chief Secretary to the Trea- 
sury, will this week start 
catting back 

spending bids by £4 hjlbon- to 
hit tbe Governments £144 
billion total public spending; 
target for next year. 

Tire Treasury is anxious to 
damp down on any ideas of a 
pre-election spending bmge- 
The Hunt wanting to tne 
spending ministers win be tnat 
tbe choice may not be between 
trig tax arts and higher spac- 
ing. Higher spending, it wjfl 
signed, could mean higher 

The signs are tfcat^ the 
autumn spending negotiations, 
beginning with bilateral meet- 
ings wife other ministers aw 
leading 00 to the inevitable 
Star Chamber of senior min- 

isters next month, will be for 
tougher than last year. t - 
The bids for additional 
spending faced by Mr 
MacGregor are from Mr 

Kenneth Baker, tbe Secretary 

of State for Education, Mr 
Nonnas Fowler, the. Secretary 
of State for Social Services, 
Mr George Younger, toe De- 
fence- Secretory and Mr 

Nicholas Ridley at toe Depart- 
ment of Environment 
This is in addition to the 
award of £3 billion to Mr 
Ridley for the local anftwit? 
ra te support grant, anMnocd 
in July just before toe Par- 
Kamentaiy recess. Thfocnt the 
amount left in the reserve for 
1987-88 from £6.3 billion to 
£3 J billion. 

One of toebig battlegrounds 
in tbe public spending round is 
likely to he on charges. Mr 

Peter Walker, toe 
Secretory, ami the main voice 
in tbe Cabinet for an 

overall boost to toe spendi n g 
targets, wiD resist Treasury 
attempts to posh ap toe prices 
dunged by the nationalized 
energy industries. The Trea- 
sury may, however, nse the 
recovering world oQ price as 
an argument for higher domes- 
tic energy charges. 

Prescription and other 
health service charges also 
look certain to cause more 
difficulties dun usual, with 
the - general election 

The continued rise in un- 
employment has produced an 

automatic increase in demand- 
determined spending on social 
security and unemployment 
benefits. The Government as- 
yjmwl tfrnf memployraeiit in 

Great Britain would stabilize 
at 3 mflfian in its pabtic 
spending plans, published ear- 
lier this year. 

The latest raemptoyment 
total was 3J million, in July. 
Each 16M00 increase in an- 
employraent adds £210 mUfion 
directly to public spending. 

Mr MtaGreger thus has £4 
bfllioa of bids to squeeze into 
£3 billion of the remt niiig 
reserve. But even tofsadtieve- 
ment would leave the Treasury 
wftfa nMbiiig in reserve next 
year. Realistically,- toe round 
has to he completed with £2 
billion eS toe reserve intact. 

Last year, the Treasury was 
able to boost its asset sales 
projections, by the feetesfe®, 
for toe first time, of Brifish 
Gas. This boosted central 
privatization proceeds from £2 
Union to £4.75 billion a year. 

This year, the device may be to 
step up non-stock market as- 
set sales. 

These include council 
houses and flats, and svplns 
land owned by local authori- 
ties, area health authorities 
and nationalized industries. 

This year’s spending round 
is not taking place amid City 
fears about the Government's 
ability to hit its borrowing 
targets, which may act to the 
Treasury’s disadvantage in 
arguments with ministers. 

After a run of good figures. 
City analysts expect this 
year's £7 billion borrowing 
target to be achieved. In 1985- 
86, the paMfe sector borrowing 
requirement recorded an 
undershoot as pablic spending 
was held and tax revenues 
proved strongor than expected.

Direct investors seeking to 
raise small amounts of BES 
finance should be encouraged 
by the feet that the asset 
restriction rule does not apply 
to the first £50,000 of share 
capital Add to this the feet 
that property development 
and farming ventures have 
both been let back into the 
scheme, and the result is a 
perfect tax shelter, which no- 
one paying lax of SO per cent 
or more should ignore. 

In theory, investors should 
all be setting up small and 
sleepy farming or property 
ventures which trade suf- 
ficiently to qualify fix- BES 
relief; and then sell off the 
assets after five years. 

The irony about redressing 
the balance in favour of BES 
funds is that some, including 
County Bank and Electra, 
have announ ce d they will no 
- longer be raising further BES 
funds. The reasons are the 
problems the funds have had 
raiding money, the fae* that 
they did not raise enough to 
make it financially worth 
while, and the huge amount of 
staff time the exercise ab- 
sorbed. There is better money 
to be made in other areas of : 
venture capital, such .as 
management buyouts. 

However, the outlook for 
the BES is encouraging. The 
scheme is still very much in its 
infancy, and as with all new 
legislation of this nature there 
is a period of femlliarization. 
A steady stream- of inquiries 
about the scheme is being ' 
received by the Inland Rev- 
enue from smaller accoun- 
tants and solicitors. Hopefully 
they will play an increasing 
role m linking up tire en- 
trepreneur and BES investor. 

Failure rate of companies runs high 

There are scant statistics on 
the number of business 
expansion scheme companies 
that have felled. The report

firm, which was commis- 
sioned by the Government 
and strategically published

Figures released by PMM 
in a survey of companies 
floated on the over-the- 
counter market indicate that 
the feilnre and financial cruas 
among BES companies re- 
mains at this high level 

This report, which in- 
correctly heralds the BES as 
an important contributor to 

the OTC, says that of the 213 
British companies with a 
quotation on one or more of 
the diverse OTC markets, 
some 80 qualified for tax 
relief under the BES. 

Statistics show that six of 
these companies, which be- 
tween them raised just over £3 
million of BES money, are 
already in receivership, while 
another nine companies have 

had their quotations sus- 
pended. Added to this are five 
companies generally trading 
at prices of arotmd one quar- 
ter or less tbanllotatiauprice.

Stromberg-Carison wins 
second USA Bell contract 


In recent years there has been 
increasing concent throughout 
the world about growing threats 

to militar y and ra mmer rial 
harbour facilities and associated 
shipping bom sophisticated 
underwater vehicles and 
specially equipped divert. 

To counter this threat, 
Plessey has developed a com- 
prehensive in-depth marine 
intruder detection system, 
building on the company's 
unrivalled experience in sonar 

The new system, already 
attracting wide customer inte- 
rest, provides highly reliable 
and affordable protection for 
submarine bases and surface- 
fleet harbours, commercial 
harbours, container ports, oil 
refmeiy terminals and coastal 
nuclear power stations. 

All of the systems under- 
water sensors and sonars are 
fully integrated with above- 
surface sensors to provide a 
total defence system for 
co-ordinated counter-action 
against underwater intruders 
and to prevent undetected 
escape or reinforcement. 

By wimung a new contract Gar a 
Stinmberg-Caxison DCO system 
from a second Bell Operating 
Company, Plessey penetration 
of the North American 

mark pi for di g ita l telephone

received a significant boost 

In the new contract, Strom- 
berg-Carison, the Plessey 
subsidiary in the USA. will 
supply a DCO system to Pacific 
Bell which operates telephone 
services on the West Coast of 
the USA. 

The system will cany ‘live* 
commercial traffic, and will be 
used to conduct trials which 
could lead to further orders. 

It will be installed early in 
1987, at a location yet to be 
determined by Pacific BeH 


Ernest Jones, President of 
Stromberg-Carison, says: ‘Wfe 
are delighted with the confi- 
dence shown in us by Pacific 
Bell and welcomethisopportu- 
nity to give them on-line opera- 
ting experience with the DCO’. 

In ftbruaiy 19S6 Stromberg- 
Carison won a contract for a 

system comprising a DCO host 
and two remotely operated 
exchanges totalling over 8,000 
subscriber lines, from South 
Central BeD. 

This is scheduled to enter 
service early in 1987 and will 
make Stromberg-Carison the 
first new supplierof digital tel$ 
phone exchange equipment to 
install a system in the old Bed 
telephone network. 

In ihe past. Bell and now its 
successors the Regional Bed 
Operating Companies, tradit- 
ionally bought telephone 
exchange systems from just 
two suppliers - American Tele-

Northern Telecom.

Why gold 
boom will 
not fuel 

FromMaxweU Newton 
New York 

This has been a terrible 
week for bonds but a marvel- 
lous week. Gar gold. In the 
minds of the panicky bond 
traders In Chicago and New 
York, the two are connected by 
tbe word “inflation”. 

Yet one can argue that the 
gold price boon h a belated 
recoil ition of fee dollar's 

I am indebted, to Mr John 
Brimelow of Keane Securities 
ftr fee foOowing idea. 

Two main sources are 
apparent a fee forces driving 
op the arid prices: The fear of 
a cutoff of South African 

demand for gold, dne to fee Mg 
fell in the non-dollar gold 
price. The yen price of gold 
has tnrabRd, creating a frenzy 
of gold buying in Japan but the 
Deutschmark price of gold and 
fee Swiss franc price of gold 
have also tumbled. 

Seme analysts are inclined 
to discoaat fee South African 
dementia fee recent steep rise 
in the gold price because 
dnringthe the prices 

of ®t£er crucial metals pro- 
duced by South Africa, such as 
chrome, vanadium, antimony, 
manganese and rhodium — 
have either feliea or risen only 
slightly. So why have thefr 
priced also not taken dl? 

This brings us back to the 
nondollar gold buyers. At Sw 
Fr60O, gold is patently very 
cheap by past historical Swiss 
experience. At Sw FrfOO, it is 
worth about $370. 

But if, ns is probable, the 
Swiss franc price starts to rise 
again towards 800, under fee 
influence of rising demand and 
a fading of mental kgs among 
non-dollar gold buyers, then at 
Sw FrSM, fee cold price in 
doDars would be $490. 

The Japanese demand 
seems likely to begin to drive 
fee yen price of mU sfnilaiiy 
bade to historical levels. 

Tbe US bond markets might 
then take fright at fee prospect 
of $490 gold and decide this 
was anequi vocal evidence of 
inflfiti"" In fee US. Yet, this 
view ignores fee rapid decline 
in the re - ^rtance of tire US in 
the world ecooomy and the 
lesser importance of fee dollar 
as fee |«ke measure of gold 

So, any notion that fee rise 
^jn precious metals* prices sug- 
gests incipient inflation in few 
US reflects dunking feat 
would have been more relevant 
in 1971 Aaa in 1986. 

MeanwhOeJhe US-Japa- 
nese trade imbalance talks 
may have produced some 
agreement by Tokyo to stimu- 
late its economy — and its 
imports. Unfortunately, fee 
US excess appetite for wparts 
is such feat if it woe reduced 
to parity wife exports, the 
Gomans and Japanese would 
have to raise then combined 
imports by 50 per cent to 
replace fee loss of US import 
demand in world trade — an 
unlikel y event. Hence, as the 
US is finding ways to art 
imports (which are stiflfeg 
domestic growth), fee result 
wM be a spreading wo r ld w i de

Tapping Euro-markets 
to build the reserves 

In what was another fairly 
boring -week, fee gilt market 
drifted towards fee bottom of 
its recent trading ran^e and 
continued to show signs of 
concern about the UK's long- 
term economic background. 

Tbe most exerting- event 
was the Government’s $4 
bffiioQ Euromarket issue. 
This stirred memories of 
| September .1985, when the 
announcement of & $2-5 tril- 
lion floating rate note (FRN) 
issue triggered a burst of 
intense market speculation. 

Tbe Government must be 
planning to join the EMS, 
said some. Certainly not, said 
others — it has decided to 
finance the Public Spending 
Borrowing Requirement 
(PSBR.) by raising dollars 
rather than sterling. Not at 
aH said a third group; it 
needs doDara so that the Bank 
of England can join in. with 
-other Group of Five conn- 
tries in concerted foreign 
exchange intervention to 
force the dollar down. 

Opportunity to 
raise cash 

In the eventTnone of these 
explanations was c orr ect. In- 
stead, the Treasury had am- 

•Jvt AhmAaA ariuontAiWB 

to raise cash for fee foreign 
exchange reserves. Convert- 
ible currency reserves swiftly 
rose from $7.5 billion to over 
$10 billion, where they have 
remained until now. . 

Last week, the Govern- 
ment mounted another sortie 
into the Euro-markets, rais- 
ing $4 billion in a matter of 
hours at very keen rates. 
What is it op to this time? It 
seems most unHkdy that it is 
seriously thinking of using 

domestic borrowing require- 
ment If it simply allows the 
money to sitin the reservesJt 
will have no implications 
whatever fear the money sup- 
ply or domestic funding. (In 
the monetary statistics, aQ 
that happens is that the rise in 
the reserves is offset by an 
equivalent change in foreign 
currency lending to the public 


But if the authorities do 
wish to reduce the domestic 
borrowing requirement; they 
would first need to swap the 
dollars for sterling in the 
foreign exchange markets. 
The. sterling raised would 
then reduce the amount 
needed to be raised by selling 

Such a course would be 
neither desirable nor* prac- 
tical On the grounds of 
desirability, it would be a 
relatively expensive way of 
funding the borrowing 
requirement, since the fixed 
rate sterling cost of the dollar 
FRN was about 20 basis 
points above the' equivalent 
gilts yield at the time of issued 

On the grounds of prac- 
ticability, consider - what 
would happen if the authori- 
ties chose to exchange then 
borrowed dollars for sterling 
over a period of (ay) six 

The markets would notice 

that the foreign exchange 
reserves were systematically 
falling , and would conclude 
either that the authority 
were propping up the pound, 

or forcing it up, as seemed 

Both conclusions would be 
potentially disruptive, since 
R an g es m reserves can in 
themselves trigger specu- 
lative attacks on the currency 
from the private sector. For 
example, in a climate of 
{pronounced sterling weak- 
ness, tbe announcement of 
bharply declining reserves is 
quite likely to generate a 
much worse crisis. 

For these reasons, ex- 
change reserves are rather 
like nuclear weapons — useful

when used. Their real role is 
to enable short-term raids in 
the currency markets (which 
can be unwound before tbe 
official statistics have to be 
published) and to sow the 
seeds of doubt in the minds of 
currency operators, who 
never know when they might 
just be used for such raids. 

Apart from that, they have 
one other advantage. Because 
the UK is able to borrow on 
such good terms, it can

raired and make a virtually 
risk-free profit of about 15 
basis points, or $6 million a 
year on the $4 trillion raised 
last week. 

The. Treasury knows a 
bargain when it sees one. It 
was presented with a costless 
way of raising' ammunition ' 
which might be fired in 
extremis, out would more 
likely lie unused in the arse- 
nal As a deterrent, it might 
enable tbe UK to achieve 
marginally lower . interest 
rates for any given level of 
sterling m the election -run- 
up; But the one thing not in 
the Govemmra f s mind is. to' 
ussr the proceeds to finance 

- The gats market funding 
equation is -therefore - not 
materially affected by the 
transaction. Fortunately, 
however, the funding equa- 
tion has anyway moved 
dramatically m the right 
direction during the summer, 
rectifying the under-funding 
of the PSBR which - had 
earlier built up. On a season- 
ally unadjusted basis, the 
Government underfunded 
the PSBR by £4.1 trillion up 
to mid-June, but virtually aH 
of this shortfall was elimi- 
nated by mid-August. By 
wrapping up gross gut sales of 
£2.7 billion in only two 
months, the Bank . has 

BO 81 82 B 3 84 85 86 I 

manoeuvred itself _ into a 
position from which- the 
funding programme should 
be easilv accomplished. 

Consider the . figures; 
Assuming a PSBR of £7J 
billion for 1986-87, fee Bank 
will need to sdi only around 
£2.5 billion of net debt before; 
next April, and £1.75 billion 
of this will probably come 
from non-gilt forms of debt, 
notably national savings: 
This leaves new net gh sales 
of only about £700 million, or 
about £100 million a month. 
(Redemptions of £5 .5 billioif 
need to be added to this, but 
of course they do not count as 
a net drain on institutional 

Clearly, the failure of lh& 
ills market to make gains uf 

bond markets in July and 
August may be connected 
with the large supply of stock 
which hit the market in those 
months. One factor suggest- 
ing that the performance of 
the market may improve 
somewhat in the month? 
ahead is fee slow-down jn 
demands on institution^ 
cash which will now occur. ? 

Even allowing for 
privatization receipts of tp 

remainder of the financial 
year, the monthly cash drain 
on the institutions from Gov- 
ernment rales of debt plus 
equity will amount to only 
about £600 million, as against 
a drain so far in tbe financial 
year of almost £1.1 billion k 
month. , _ 

Bond markets : 
remain firm 

What this means is that the 
supply-demand position in 
the market is unlikely to act 
as a major drag on prices if 
other fundamentals are mov- 
ing in fee right direction. And 
for a :time tins may .occur. 
Despite last week’s, set-back 
in fea : US Treasury market 
(based on stranger economic 
activity and worries about 
gold and oil pricesX Japanese 
and European bond markets 
have remained reasonably 
firm, and look set for further 

Perhaps these -foreign mar- 
kets will drag gilt prices up for 
awhile. But u tins is the main 
case for buying gilts, then 
wiiy not buy foreign bonds

. The autumn reporting 
son started this week and 
many companies are showing 
a rate of profit growth which 
confirms the belief of those 
wnoconsider that -small com- 
panies can offer the greatest 
potential for above-average 

[One such company is 
Thermax, a manufacturer of 
foBflhened glass which has 
applications in the auto- 
motive, domestic appliance 
and architectural products 
market ; 

„ The company has had an 
unhappy history — in order to 
gam a quote it- reversed into 
the publidy quoted VW Hold- 
ings, an engineering company 
which shortly after the merger 
moved into losses, cripplin g 
the profitability of Thennax. 
The management moved 
swiftly to dose down the loss- 
making VW but the excep- 
tional write-offs last year cost 
the company its entire pretax 
profit for the year.

Total dividend 9p (5p) for the

profit £2.89 million (£1.48 mil- 
lion). Earnings per share 38.36p 
(20.98p). Total, funds under

with unhholdings up from

Coodhead Print Group, one 
of the largest web-offset print-

announced its preliininaryfig-

Pretax profits rase 34 per cent

Small companies cannot al- 
ways. buck the trend in the 
economy and this was re- 
flected this week in the results 
of ASD, the independent steel 
distributor. Steel stockholders 
have all endured very difficult 
conditions in the first half of 
the year, reflecting the de- 
pression in demand after the 
collapse of the oil price. The 
s ituati on has not been helped 
either by the strength of 
a gam^t the dollar. -

Demand has now stabilized 
after a very difficult first 
quarter but the company is 
hopeful that some laige con- 
tracts from the construction 
indnstxy will lead to a stronger 
second half. The market is 
looking for the group to make 
£2 millio n for the full year (the 
second half is usually t 
active than the firt half) and 
on this basis, the prospective 
rating of nine times is not 

The lack of liquidity in the 
shares limits the performance 
and until the upward trend in 
profitability is resumed, the 
stock will be viewed as

Pretax profit £277,000 (loss

board explains that it would not 
be appropriate to compare there 

with those for the 
period last year 
hi view of the exceptional 
provisions of £3.5 millio n for

the 1985 accounts.

showing some improvement, 
although much of the increase 
has been at the expense of 
margins. But the board hopes 
that the year’s figures will be 
better, although much will de- 
pend on the Christmas trade. -

Merger policy back 
in the melting pot 

The report of the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission on Allied Lyons 
is likely to ns-open a lively political 
debateon mergers. Embarrassingly, in 
that eventuality, the Bank of England 
has become the most cogent critic of 
the malign side-effects of periodic 
British mania for takeover bids. 

The Bank strongly opposed the 
Allied takeover partly because the 
high debt involved might impose risks 
on the business, but principally for 
fear of a series of these highly 
leveraged bids. It looked at the 
exchange of $150 billion of equity 
capital for debt since 1983 in the 
United States because of bids or 
management buyouts — and did not 
like what it saw. 

If the economy turned down, banks 
and companies could be sufficiently 
weakened to threaten financial stabil- 
ity- High gearing certainly exacerbated 
the 1929 crash. 

In its evidence to the Commission, 
the Bank said that pre-emption of 
cash flow for debt servicing would add 
to pressure on managements to maxi- 
mize profits and cash in the short term 
by cutting research, product develop- 
ment and investment 

This chimes with the Bank's general 
warnings of short-term thinking in the 
City last October. David Walker, its 
director overseeing relations between 
finance and industry, warned that the 
City's prediction to take a quick 
profit — the premium bidders offer — 
obliged company managers to take a 
short view and cut back on develop- 
ment to avoid becoming a victim. 
Either way, the competitiveness of 
British industry would suffer. 

Mr Walker's analysis of the prob- 
lem was stronger than his solutions. 
The Commisssion took up his chal- 
lenge to look at the effects of loan 
gearing in the Allied case. It came up 
with some frightening numbers, but 
was not unduly worried. 

Fears over gearing, as over many 
aspects of takeovers, relate to cu- 
mulative effects rather than individ- 
ual cases, which are the remit of the 
Commission. So the MMC passed the 
question of gearing and financial 
stability back to the Bank of England 
and the Stock Exchange, which will 
find it hard to make workable rules. 

In another current takeover battle, 
the high technology engine-compo- 
nent group AE has followed Mr 
Walker’s advice by keeping its big 
City shareholders informed. It has 
stressed its research and investment 
programmerwhich it believes essen- 
JdaLto stay competitive worldwide. 
City investors, well aware of the 
arguments for responsible 
shareholding, seem impressed. But 
many of them have simply taken the 
traditional short-term option of sell- 
ing in the market. 

Some institutions have wanned to 

Mr Walker's suggestion that part of 
their portfolio should be run on a 
long-term view. But the trend still 
points in the other direction. Last 
week, the £1.6 billion Unilever pen- 
sion fimd followed British Rail in 
deciding to put its investment 
management out to City firms to use 
neater dealing skills required after the 
City big bang. 

Unilever may follows trend to split 
a portfolio into a passively managed 
index fund and competitively man- 
aged funds geared to maximizing 
short-term gains. The combination of 
arm's length operation. City com- 
petition, short-term dealing and pas- 
sive management, hardly points to 
stronger long-term relationships be- 
tween investors and companies. 

City practices cannot be blamed for 
two other general doubts about merg- 
ers. Do they reduce capital investment 
and job creation? It has long been 
argued that takeovers are too easy an 
option for firms that might otherwise 
make greenfield investments, develop 
new product lines of their own or add 
to competition by entering new 
markets. The threat to jobs can come 
either through lack of investment or 
by the short-term pressures to prune 
to recoup cash and takeover pre- 
miums quickly. 

Certainly, most successful econo- 
mies do not seem so addicted to 
takeovers, and some moratorium 
would be an obvious short-term 
measure to maximize employment. 

Most dangerously, however, these 
arguments imply that financial mar- 
kets introduce consistent and damag- 
ing distortions. That questions the 
basic principle of merger policy that 
(aside from creating monopolies) 
market forces know best 

The Labour Party, in the person of 
Roy Hattersley, is not worried about 
that He wants to reverse policy to a 
presumption that market-inspired 
mergers are bad unless proved other- 
wise. But Mr Hattersley is not against 
mergers. Rather, he supposes that 
mergers inspired by Whitehall are 
superior to those effected by the 
market. History is not on his side. 

Experience has equally shown that a 
narrow definition of competition has 
become inadequate and that other 
unquantified tests of mergers lead to 
inconsistency and influence-monger- 
ing. Interference with market forces is 
dangerous, but has long been judged 
necessary in this area. More may now 
be . needed. Thinking should be di- 
rected to a mix of taxation. Bank of 
England guidance and a more sophis- 
ticated checklist for the Monopolies 
Commission rather than simply to 
more Whitehall discretion.

A guide to 
career choice 


*:*?•. .j. ri 



5"? ' w * As after the A-Ievd results 
canteoin we are half-way through the 
J^Bawing period when applicants are 
up with places. Instiiu- 
- 1 * 0 "a*® ago "«* strong 
f ld * ^ c ' rc going' 
™ cl< ^ ,n 8 al than 10 points"), are 
now willing to talk to candidates with 

- than ^ose who were 

around last week. 

This is not the case with all subjects. If 
you are trying for a place on a popular 
course you are probably finding diffi- 
culty. it helps at this time of year to be a 
set enlist. Alan Hallmark, a district 
c areers officer in Cheshire, and an 
experienced Advanced Further Informa- 
tion. Service Adviser, said: “You can get . 
in for some science degrees with the same 
grades that are required for some HND 

“I’ve had HND business studies 
courses asking for four points and offers 
of four points for environmental science 
f 1 ”* . geology degrees. And students 
looking for places on law or on popular 
arts courses are having problems." 

I have found chemistry departments 
making low offers — and some lnng^gp 
couraes, particularly if the candidate is 
willing to combine an unusual lang ua ge 
with French (“I can take her for French 
and Russian but not for French 

There is also a dawning realism among 
students. Some of you have realized 

Tutorial colleges have 
an impressive record 

already that your grades simply are not 
good enough. Either you do not want to 
accept any place that is offered, or you 
haven't got enough points to scrape into 
higher education at alL What can yon do? 
. Thre are three options: re-apply next 
year with the same grades, but to a 
different place or less popular course; re- 
take A-levels; or forget higher education 
and get a job. 

The first is the simplest It leaves you 
free, after putting in a new application 
next month, to earn some money 
through temporary work or to go abroad. 
But it is only a reasonable alternative if 
your grades were respectable, but not 
good enough for your original choice of 
course. If you are in this situation, you 
could sdll pick up a place now, but might 
not want to take part in the current 
scramble and commit yourself to three 
years at a place you know little about. 

You can spend the next few weeks 
looking through prospectuses ancf then 
' send in an early application. You will 
. need to get a 1987 form directly from 
PCAS or UCCA and ask your former 
school to provide a reference. In order to. 
avoid more disappointment next Au- 
gust, it is advisable to check first with 
admissions staff that the grades you are 
holding will be acceptable. 

You can still find a 
place even if your 
A-level results 
were disappointing. 
Beryl Dixon looks 
at the possibilities 

It often helps. Alan Hallmark sayvto 
be able to say that you intend to spend 
the intervening year in employment 
related to your new course (an pair work 
for hngnists, laboratory work for 
scientists, community work for social 
scientists, etc). 

Re-takes are a popular option and 
often the only one students consider. 
They are not easy and you need to look at 
. the' options carefully. At school the only 

possibility may be to repeat the second 
year sixth. Advantage: you are in 
familiar surroundings with teachers who 
know you. Disadvantage: you may fed it 
beneath your dignity or want a change 

Some further education colleges run a 
one-year A-level course. Again, there are 
pros and cons. Some people genuinely 
thrive in a new atmosphere, but the 
examination board, and therefore the 
syllabus, may be different 

“Crammers", or tutorial colleges as 
they prefer to be known, have . an 
impressive record of improving grades. 
Teaching in groups of six or eight — 
usually six hours a week per subject and 
excluding all fringe actvrties (no assem- 
blies, dubs or prefect duties, although 
many provide sports as an extra, “never 
at the expense of study") — they do 
improve most students* performance. 
“We find a very positive-attitude," says 
one. “They really want to succeed this

the grade 

The feet that regular reports are sent to 
parents who are paying up to £1,850 fora 
January re-sit course in three subjects 
and £4,600 for July may have something 
■to do with it With prices like these you 
will want to shop around, asking whether 
books and VAT are included and 
whether there are labs on the college 
premises. But even these establishments 
can't work miracles. If you really have 
reached your academic ceiling, re-sits are 
not a good idea. 

The last option is to seek employment. 
It does not have to be a dead end. You 
may think that a job is a job is a job, but 
there are a lot of opportunities both for 
working your way up from the bottom — 
something we often forget about with the 
emphasis we place on higher eduction — 
and to take vocational qualfidations on 
a part-tjmebasis. 

You may be feeling now that the last ! 
thing you will ever warn is more 
eduction, but in a while yon might 
change your min d and then you can start 
looking around to see what lands of part- 
time, correspondence or "open learning” 
courses are available. 

Local further education colleges have 
always provided part-time courses fix 
business, scientific and technical 

There are now lots of new initiatives 
known as flexi-study or open learning, 
which combine methods of personal 
tuition, correspondence study and “dis- 

Explore alternatives to 
toll-time education 

tance learning” — audio or video 
recorded courses, which are all priced to 
suit you as the consumer and timed to fit 
in with your commitments. 

Some are based at your local college; 
other packages can be obtained from 
private study centres or professional 
bodies. (The Hotel and Catering Train- 
ing Board, for example, is producing a 
home study package for people aiming at 
eventual management posts in that 

Explore alternatives to full-time 
education. What kind of job could you 
get? That unfortunately depends on 
where you live. In some areas some 
employers deliberately look for people 
who have just missed out on higher 
education and offer traineeships to 
people with modest or even non A-level 
passes. But in any case, yon should not 
be too choosy. 

“I advise students in this positon," 
Alan Hallmark says, “to swallow their 
pride and go fin* jobs that don’t sound 
like A-ievel status jobs but are in the 
areas they want to be in. If they can 
prove that they are of slightly higher 
calibre than the 16-year-old entrant, then 
they can in time turn them into, 
management training schemes, taking] 
further quafifictions n necessary.” 


WHICH is why, despite your very 
best endeavours, it is possible to lose touch 
with the latest developments, lo settle 
into comfortable habits of thought. 

The Henley Senior Management 
Course has been especially designed (using all 
the expertise of Britain’s best-known, longest 
established management college] to inform 
senior executives of the latest trends in 
management thinking lo improve awareness 
of the political, economic and social environ- 
ment In shorty to sharpen the skills, attitudes 
and insights required at the higher levels of 
management and direction. 

The four week residential course in 
Henley's beautiful Thames-side setting is 
perhaps best viewed as a positive period of 
reflection and enrichment 

Above all, you will find the wide 
ranging programme a stimulating challenge. 
You need not fear having to read hundreds of 
case studies. Rather you will tackle the gamut 
of key senior management topics - from 
organisation to motivation; from systems to 
strategy; from finance to marketing 

WhatJs more; a considerable degree 
of flexibility is built in to the course 

through a repertoire of elective topics 
such as Marketing, Finance, 
Accounting and Employee Relations. This 
enables you to concentrate on the topics you 
especially wish to follow. 

The course also provides an ideal oppor- 
tunity for senior executives to compare their 
own experience and attitudes with those of 
their peers from a wide variety of other organis- 
ations and backgrounds - at home and abroad. 

If you want to avoid the slightest 
danger of your lofty position leaving you out 
on a limb, why not find out more about the 
Henley Senior Management Course

Teague in different 
league on day of 
backward forwards 

By David Hands 
Rngby Correspondent 

Swansea - 

Defeat was a bitter pin for 
Gloucester to swallow at 
Kingshoim on Saturday, even 

tetb^es havcytt^OTKXnh. 
They scored Ae only toy of the 
game, again* two penalty e»ls 
lacked by Wyatt, yet bad the 
frustration of watching Lazenby 
miss three penalties and a 
conversion while a drop goal by 
Pointon rebounded from a post. 

Watching from the 
replacements’ bench was Tim 
Smith, whose goal-kicking 
might have served his side 
better. Watching from a some- 
what higher elevation was Mar- 
tin Green, England’s coach, 
whose main interest may have 
been the wen-being of Haxraa- 
ford, a national squad scrum 
halt but who would have been 
more impressed by the form of 
Teague, the Gloucester No. 8. 

There were not many ad- 
mirable qualities in a game 
burdened by poor tactical kick- 
ing and erratic, not to say 
impenetrable, back play. But 
Teague, capped by England in 
New Zealand last year and aged 
27 next month, revealed all the 
qualities which have made him 
a valuable back-row forward. 

In a match in which tittle 
stood between the teams, 
Swansea's lineout gave them a 
critical, if untidy, edge . Richard 
Moriarty, their new captain, 
dominated possession and. 
when be did not, his brother 
Paul frequently did. Both con- 
firmed the positive opinions 
held of them last season with the 
older brother, Richard, finishing 
the stronger. 

Swansea, too, have the com-' 
fort of knowing that Hopkins, 
their centre, who is still recover- 
ing from a hamstring injury 
acquired on tour with Wales 

during the summer, may shortly 
be available. They need some- 
one to provide them with a 
cutting edge in midfield now 
that Richards has retired 

Jones, Wales's scram half, 
took a knock on bis left elbow 
early in the game which may 
have hindered him slightly but 
his intuition shone through 
whenever required. He has the 
valuable quality of turning up in 
the most unexpected places. 

Gloucester led 4-3 at the 
interval and deserved to be 
further ahead. Breeze, malting 
the most of any scraps that came 
his way, was a whisper away 
from a try but David Matthews, 
the Liverpool referee who han- 
dled the game wdl was appro- 
priately positioned to deny him 
hi* rhfltyy from MacLe&u's 
chip. Teague did score, how- 
ever, when Swansea risked a 
long Throw nn their own line and 

the Na 8 grabbed the ball from 

Swansea grew stronger at 
forward during the second half 
and Wyatt’s second penalty 
(both times Gadd was the 
offender) gave them the lead, 
which was nearly enhanced 
when Jones sent the leggy Emyr 
off on a long run. Pointon. 
whose penalty touch-finder led 
to Teague's try, was sadly 
wayward with his kicking

Good start Irish need 

a drop 
of genius 

By Bryan Stiles 



Northern rugby 
by Michael Stevenson 
Northern dubs enjoyed a 
gratifying opening to the season 
with Vale of Lure, Waterloo, 
Headhtgley and ftonadhay, all 
refijstermg good wins over 
“foreign'' opposition. While on 
the Northern Merit Table front, 
all three matches followed the 
form book. 

Lrierpool St Helens have 
been plagued with the problem 
of what to call their excellent 
new club from the toochline. It 
is virtually impossible to shout 
“come on, Liverpool St 
Helens". It sounds too much 
like an incantation. Cheering for 
“the dub", has too many P G 
Wodehouse associations and 
the decision to settle for “LSH" 
seems eminently sansfectory. 

LSH followed their excellent 
win against Aberavoa with a 
much more convincing victory 
over Northern (34-4), newly 
reinstated in the table. If they 
are going to stay in H, however, 
they must tackle one major 
problem: namely their lack of 
rarirling , Nick Sirams and Brian 
Wdlans tore great holes in the 
centre, as did “Tosh” Askew. A 
much improved performance 
from the pack guaranteed LSITs 
backs plenty of quality balls. 

The match was virtually won 
and lost by the interval, as 
Simms (2) and Mark Hale, had 
run in tries for the winners, with 
Simms kicking one conversion. 
Northern managed a glorious 
try on the right-wing, scored by 
Chris O'Hara, but there was to 
be no Indian summer: and 
further tries for LSH by Hescott, 
Ian Jeffrey (2) and Terry Moms, 
with Simms contributing two 
farther conversions, under l in e d 
their superiority. 

Sale, even without Tony 
Bond, were far too strong for 
Morley. winning 35-9 after lead- 
ing 25-3 at half-time. Sale’s 
superiority was most marked in 
the line-outs, a department at 
which Ian McKie excelled, and 
the back row. where Simon 
Timing and Mike Kenrick con- 
firmed their rich talent 
Over the Pennines, Wakefield 
had a much tougher assignment 
in beating newly promoted Dur-

drop of a shillelagh, the Irish 
were determined to put on one

brate tire opening of the

clubhouse on Saturday. The sun 
shone, champagne corks 
popped, barrels of Irish stout 
were consumed — but that extra 
bit of genius did not materialize 
on tbe field 

This was just a pleasant game 
between teams fielding players 
who probably had their sights

from their hosts. 

The invitation side produced 
few errors; they always seemed 
to have something in reserve 

The home team opened the 
score in the eighth minute when 
Murphy created an opening for 
a movement that ended with 
Campbell collecting a try, which 
O’Donnell converted. The vis-

While the Wallabies forwards

passing and resolute Australian 

The only try of the first half 
came against the run of play 
when Papworlh jinked his way 
to within a yard of the New

loose pass. The ball bounced 
enticingly before being collected 
by Leals, who capped a fine

Ramich John, Mr John and 
Dubian were disputing the 
lead with Park Express track- 
ing this group. After the 
winner had gone for home, 
both Angel Cordero on Trip- 
tych ana Paul Eddery on 
Double Bed attempted to 
launch their attacks. Freddie 
Head also made a forward 
move on Baillamont but the 
effort was soon spent. Dubian 
was the first British runner to

Bolger, the Kilkenny 
trainer, has long been a genius 
with fillies as the exploits of 
Condessa. Give Thanks and 
Flame Of Tara have already

we'll have to think it over 
first," he said after having

triumph of his career. 

The story of Patrick Burns's 
career as an owner-breeder is a 
heartening rags to riches tale. 
First he pinned his face on 
Red God when he was a 
comparatively unknown stal- 
lion and now he has gone nap 
on Ahonoora, who is the sire 
of Park Appeal as well as Park

guineas for yesterday's winner 
at the Newmarket October

himself by winning the John 
H organ Handicap on Any- 
thing Better. “Triptych has 
run her usual honest race and 
will now go for the Arc." said 
Robert Natas of Horse Farm, 
representing Patrick 
Biancone. “10 furlongs on this 
ground was too sharp for her 
as she is really a mile and a 
half mare," 

The British raiding party's 
only success of the afternoon 
came when Paul Cook rode 
Simple Taste to a narrow but 
decisive win in the Goff's 
Silver Flash Stakes. 

On Saturday, Vincent 
O'Brien showed ' us a live 
candidate for the Prix de 
FAbbayc, the big sprint in 
Paris on Arc day, when Pal 
Eddery forced Robert 
Sangster’s filly, Acushla, past 
Storm Warning and Marouble 
in a thrilling finish to the Glen 
International Flying Five. 

After the champion jockey 
elect had ridden an inspired 
race to show us exactly why he 
will earn a reported £2 million 
from Khaled Abdulla over the 
next three years, O’Brien said: 
“Pat says she's sure to win the 
Abbaye. This a tough and 
improving filly. But I don't 

know where she gets her speed 
from as she's by Storm Bird 
out of Amar who won over a 
mile and ahalfLT 

Talking about the virus that 
has wrought havoc in what 
was the most powerful stable 
in Europe until two seasons 
ago, the 67-year-old master 
trainer continued: “Things are 
still not right. It seems to be 
hanging around for ever. Even 
the horses which appear not to 
be affected have no bloom on 
their coats. I've only got about 
six horses ready to nm includ- 
ing Leading Counsel, who 
goes for the Prix Foy." 

However O'Brien is still 
eagerly anticipating next sea- 
son. “Of course I'm sorry to 
lose Pat But I'm looking 
forward to working with Cash 
Asmussen. He's a quite in- 
credible young man and 
exceptionally intelligent” 

The winning time of 56.88 
seconds was a new trade 
record since electrical timing 
was introduced.

finished sixth in the same race, 
should have been a source of 
encouragement by winning part 
one of the same division. 

At the start of this nine-race 
programme, Lucayan Knight is 
napped to provide a pointer to 
Girotondo's chance of winning 
part two of the first drvrisionby 
. himself landing part one. They 
began their racing careen fay 
finishing second and fourth 
respectively behind Start-Rite at 

Actualizations, my selection 
for the Sterope Handicap was 
beaten only a bead by Fenian 
Delight last time out at Edin- 
burgh. With Persian Delight 
then winning again at New- 
market, that form looks solid.

fancied horses like Vaigiy Great 
and Marwefl." 

Also victorious in the Free 
Handicap and July Cnp earlier 
this year. Green Desert win

was compefled to hole putts tor 
birdies at each of the last two 
boles for a 71 to store third 
place with Ian Baker-Finch (69), 
of Australia, on 267. . 

On a normal day, Jose-Mana 
Cafazares, who scored 61. 
would have taken the honours 

but he came from too far backin 

the pack. But he was among the 
first to congratulate Olazabal 

who has now completed a highly 
successful transition from the 
ownatratr ranks. He won the 
British triple crown of Amateur 
Cup, boys' and youths 
championships before turning 
professional last year. Yet even 
as the winner of the tour sdiool 
last November, and in spite of 
earning £47.351 already this 
season, be squeezed into this 
championship only one week 
n pn when a place became avail- 
able. He might wefl have gained 
the spot forfeited fry his compa- 
triot Severiano Ballesteros, wbo 
chose to bypass the tournament. 

Caftizares the Euro- 

pean record for most birdies in 
one round by collecting II. It 
was here in 1978 that he ended 
one round with five consecutive 
birdies then began the next with 
six successive birdies and an 
eagle. He went out on that 
occasion in 27, equalling the 
world record score for nine 
holes, but his 61 yesterday fell 
one short of the European 18 
holes record, established by the 
Italian, Bakfovino Dassu, on 
this course in 1971. 

Low scores are inevitable here 
for although the Alpine course 
stretches 6,811 yards, the ball 
travels an extraordinar y, dis- 
tance in the ratified air, 5,000 ft 
above the Rhone VaBey. Ber- 
nard Gallacfaer was the only 
player junong the 65 hallway

288 mid Sandy Lyle began the 
final round in 21 st place, 10 
strokes behind, in spite of three 
successive sub-70 scores. -He 
finished with the 66, which 
augurs wdl for his prospects in 
the Panasonic European Open 
which starts at Sunningdale on 

Caftizares thoroughly de- 
served his 61. He struck the bell 
with tremendous authority,

approach to the last where the

The unanimous opinion of a 
group of caddies, a body of men 
who know all there is to know 
about golf and golfers of course, 
was that Meredith Marshall, the 
overnight leader of the Bowring 
Scottish women's ■ open 
championship still would not 
win the title: For all her five- 
strokes lead after three rounds at 
Dalmahoy she jua did not have 

the form. 

The following day the Ameri- 
can. aged 29, triumpantiy 
proved them wrong, along with 
many others, for to be fair to 
caddies, the denizens of the 
Press box suffer from the same 
deJusioiis of omniscfeoce. But it 
did seem that a player of Miss 
ManhalTs fragile record ^ would 

surrender to the attack of one or 

more of the four players lying 
second, all with much more 
impressive credentials.

not even survive to the last day. 
But she made a mockery of the 
statistics on Saturday with an- 
other superb round over a 
couire tosking in unwonted 
suns hine out soil protected by a 
swmg wind. She showed no sum 
of we akening, no hint of the 

pressure affixting her fluent 
swing and sure putting touch. ‘

Hard-earned draw 
placates critics 

By Simon Jones 

Leicester City — — — 1 
Manchester United 1 

The battery of telephoto 
Jenses aimed at the Manchester 
.lUmled dug-out on -Saturday 
made it dear where the focus of- 
attention was at Filbert Street. 
For the United manager, . Ron 
Atkinson, it was going to be a 
difficult day. 

After half an hour, the motor- 
drives whirred into action as 
Leicester took the lead with 
a picture goaL-A smart break 
from defence ended with Kelly 
astutely chipping over the 
United goalkeeper, Tomer, 
from the angle of the penalty 
area. Atkinson’s expression, as 
he nude for the tunnel at the 
interval, matched his un- 
characteristically sombre suit 

Whatever the United man- 
met said to his team, it was 
effective. Six minutes after the 
restart, they drew level, 
Sivebaek centering perfectly to 
the for post where Whiteside, 
wbo had previously been anony- 
mous, bludgeoned in a textbook 

Atkinson deserves credit for 
his decision to bring in Hogg 
and, particularly, Sivebaek. n 
the Danish international had 

y nnnagpd U> finish bis thlUStS Up 

the right flank with more of the 
kind of crosses' that led to 
Whiteside's goal then United's 
run of three successive defeats 
wonld certainly have ended with 
a victory. _ . 

In foct the Leicester City 
manager, Bryan Hamilton, was 
so worried by Sivebaek's in-.

smile, that he had done it **30

The substitute undeniably did 
hdp to stifle the Dane, but the 
absence of Sealy, the player who 
had been replaced, meant dial 
the Leicester centre forward. 
Smith, was too often deprived of 
support. Consequently, United 
suddenly started to gain much 
more possession, as Leicester 
found it difficult to bold the ball 
in advanced positions. 

In general, though, Leicester 
played with freedom and intelfi- 
geace, occasionally delighting in 
the unorthodox. But their lack 
of stamina might have been 
their downfefl. 

For the last 20 minutes, 
Untied's- press ure grew ever 
more insistent Had Stapleton's 
header not rebounded from a 
post, their manager would have 
left- the ground in a happier 
state. His team are still bottom 
of the first division, but at least 
they now have a point and the 
news that Bryan Robson had 
come through an A team match 
at Evenon without any reaction 
from his problem shoulder must 
have cheered him upi .

At this rate, 1TV are going to 
have a relegation buttle on their 
hands when live televised foot- 
ball ret urns to the scr ee us on 
September 28 with Chelsea’s 
visit to Manchester United, and 
not the championship issue they 
must have envisaged. StiD, John 
Hollins, surprisingly chirpy for 
the tnanay r of a Chelsea team 
with out a win, can afford to look 
ou the bright side. 

“We’ve been in a worse 
position,” he said, recalling last 
Easter when West Ham United 
and Queen’s Park Rangers be- 
tween them ruined his holiday. 
Chelsea climbed out of Oat 
particular hole and no doubt 
things will improve this time. 

For there can have been few 
more unlucky goals conceded 
than those with which Chelsea 
lost the lead given them by 
' Dixon’s looping header on 

A deflection sent a speculative 
shot by Newell past Godden just 
before half-time, and then the 
same Luton forward benefited 
from a collision between Pates 
and Millar to hit the 
secondThat mix-up also de- 
prived Chelsea of rates with a 
bruise in tire kidneys after they 
had used their substitute for the 
previously-injured Bumstead. 

Luton's thud goal, from Stein 
slotting in Wilson's cross, was 
normal enough. 

It will take more than a 
change of luck to fiD those 
empty seats, however, for this 
was the kind of match that had

on about dirty play and what a

that the volatile Scot had started 
this game with an ugly lunge on 
Johnson, then had a set-to with 
Nicholas and let Dooaahy feel 
the sharp edge of bis elbow, as 
the whistle wait for half time. 

As if that was not enough, 
Speedie only just thought better 
of taking on Foster, headband

A self-destructiye 

By Oive White 
Tottenham Hotspur 0 

This was a match that had all 
the ingredients— in theory. Two 
teams given licence by their 
new, pr ogressive young man- 
agers to attack, the fresh op- 
timism instilled by those 
managers and players, ■ 44,000 
crowd and perfect playing con- 
ditions. But. like bad may- 
onnaise, it was all whisked too 

Local derbies, by their very 
nature, are seUklestructive; too 
much motivation and brawn, 
not enough composure and 
brains. This season, in and 
around London,- there are 72 
derbies in the first division 
alone. And this one is generally 
regarded as the biggest, thank- 
fully, rarefy as thebest It did 
not augur well, though, for 
Loudon derbies. 

Geoige Graham, the Arsenal 
manager, who seemed rather 
s ur pri se d for someone who has 
played in a few, remarked: “1 
hope that's not the start of 
something that’s going to con- 
tinue to the detriment of Lon- 
don football. That’s the poorest 
we've played.” Even his op- 
posite number, David Pleat, 
who has seen it all before from 
the bench, was lost for a few of 
his normally well-chosen words. 
“If you were an optimist you 
could see a goal coming,” he 

Cynics would say that there 
was nothing about either 
managers disappointment that 
three points would not have put 
right. But one senses that both 
men want more than success 
from their job. They both want 
to entertain. 

Still, there were few positive 
signs for both managers. Pleat 
took some pleasure in the 1 0- 
mjnute performance of his sub- 
stitute. Ardiles, who having 
been unceremoniously bundled 
over three times seconds after he 
stepped onto the field, got up to 
demonstrate that there were 
qualities in the game other than 
being able to hurtle around the 
field for 90 minutes in a super- 
charged version of ouurvMn-the- 
raiddle. Ardiles would have 
been pleased to bear Pleat say: 
“I shall have to watch him some 

But it was Englishmen and 
Scotsmen who were under the 
microscope with Bobby Robson 
and Andy Roxburgh, the respec- 
tive managers of England and. 
Scotland, present to as s e s s can- 
didates for this week's inter- 
nationals. Robson win have 
been delighted with Waddle's 
effort and dribbling, if not his 
crosang, while Thomas showed 
that bis game still needs some 
refinemenL It was not, of 
course, Hoddle's scene, though 
Robson may have been drs- 
- appointed that here at least was 
someone who should have been 
able to put his foot on the bafl. 

Stevens and Anderson did 
their hopes no harm, Allen no 
good. Ins marker, Adams, of 
Arsenal, is defiuitely onc for the 
not-too-distam future and Stew- 
art Robson one for sooner. 
Roxburgh received conforma- 
tion of Gough's good form, but 
if McAvennie has failed to 
please him he will not have been 
enthused by Nicholas.

Those wbo say that Wimble- 
don lack the class to prosper 
in the first division will not have 

changed their minds after 
watching this sterile encounter 
at Vicarage Road. However, 
others more sympathetic to 
Wimbledon’s direct style of 
football will see these latest 
three points as further proof that 
the long ball game pays. 

Although a fast minute goal 
by Hodges, which owed more to 
luck than skill, flattered 
Wimbledon it gave them their 
fourth consecutive victory as 
well as enabling them to stretch 
their lead at the top to two 

So the fairytale continues. 
Wimbledon’s next opponents, 
Evenon, may bring than back 
down to canh, but such is the 
confidence of the manager, 
Dave Bassett, and his pfeyers 
that I would not bank on it. 
There is widespread disapproval 
of Wimbledon's tactics but it is 
worth remembering that Ips- 
wich Town, who used to be just 
as unfashionable, won the 
League championship ax their 
first attempt 24 years ago. 

Ipswich's use of a withdrawn 
winger, namely Leadbetter, at- 
tracted much criticism. 
Wimbledon’s habit of bypassing 
mid-field is also unpopular but 
why should they change a 
system which has been in- 
strumental in their rise from the 
Southern League to pole po- 
sition in the first division.? 

Wimbledon will be delighted 
to emulate the achievement of 
the team they beat on Saturday. 
Watford's peak season was 
1982-83 when they finished 
runners-up to Liverpool but 
they have gone backwards since 
then. Graham Taylor, the Wat- 
ford manager, is a Wimbledon 
admirer, which is hardly 
surprising considering that his 
team's success was based on a 
similar philosophy. 

“They are much more than an 

% and under side,” he said. 
iey are well-organized, play 

to their strengths and are far 
better than people give them 
credit for. It would be foolish of 
anybody to underestimate 
them. I think they win finish in 
the top half of the table.” 

Fashanu, who was watched by 
Arsenal's youth team coach, Pat 
Rice, used his speed and power 
to unsettle Watford but 
Wimbledon rarely looked like 
scoring. Fortunately for them 
Watford were just as toothless. 

The second half was as barren 
as the fits? and a goal was the 
last thing that anybody ex- 
pected. Hodges confounded us 
all by collecting a rebound off 
Richardson and squeezing the 
ball made Coton's far post.

win a Lord's final, Lancashire 
had to thank Fairbrother and 
Hayhurst, who added 103 for 
the sixth wicket 

Sussex had had the best of 
the conditions for bowling, the 
bail moving about a good deal 
at various times during the 
morning, most of all for Reeve 
in a most spirited and telling 
spell of .four for 20 in 12 overs. 

In return for that though, 
they had to bat in very much 
the worst of the light For the 
-last hour of their innings it was 
so dark that had it been a 
championship match involv- 
ing the same batsmen, the 
same bowlers and the same 
umpires, play would have - 
been abandoned long since. 

when Sussex were getting 
away to a rather sticky start 
he made it his business to call 
the tune. Green caught the 
mood, and their running be- 
tween wickets was electric. 
Instead of the three or four fast 
bowlers he could turn to when 
he was captaining West In- 
dies, Lloyd now had one of the 
weaker county attacks to work 
with (Lancashire are sixteenth 
in the championship) and be 
no more bad an answer to that 
than most captains would 
have. By the time Green was 
stumped off the wily old 
Simmons. Sussex needed only 
87 to win in 17 overs, long 
enough for Imran to make an 
accomplished, unhurried and 
unbeaten 50. 

Where Lloyd had been 
cheered all the way to the 
wicket on what may well have 
been his last appearance at 
Lord's (not quite all the 
members stood, but a great 
many did) Parker was given a 
wen-earned reception mien he 
came in after being caught at 
deep square leg. It is 10 years 
since Parker, as a 20-year-old, 
scored 215 for Cambridge 
„ inst Essex in only his sixth 

rst-class innings. It looked, 
as Wisden put it at the time, 
that “a new batting star” had 
been born, and on Saturday be 
played like one. He had old- 
timers in raptures. Here, at 
last was someone standing as 
the best players used to do — 
still and with the bat on the 
ground rather than waving 
around in the air. Where has 
he been all these years, they 

It is becoming traditional 
for someone to make a late 
claim for selection for the 
forthcoming tour with a good

final. Thomas of Surrey did it

has done Tl He has played -

Australia in 1981, but he was for him that England 
out cheaply twice, and al- 

though a fine player of slow 
bowling (a couple of the extra 
cover drives he played on 
Saturday, from down the 
wicket against Simmons, were 
superb strokes) he missed 
selection for the tour to India 
in 1981-82. 

Since then he has had his 
ups and downs. For a time he 
was considered a shade sus- 
pect against the fastest 
howlers. But who is not? In 
1984 he came back into 
contention, only to fell away 
again in 1985 when he had 
injury problems. This year be 
has done very welL and there 
is no better or keener fielder in 
the country. It is unfortunate 


looking at the moment for 
opening batsmen. 

As his Man of the Match Sir 
Leonard Hutton had Parker 
and Reeve to choose from. 
Both had done splendidly, and 
no one could complain that he 
opted for Reeve. 

There was, of course, a full 
house, and by modern stan- 
dards a reasonably 
unobstreperous one. They let 
the match finish before the 
usual invasion of the ground 
and were seen at their worst 
only when Hutton was trying 
to make himself heard. The 
reasons why as a batsman he 
had chosen a bowler were 
altogether drowned.

Hampshire win one-day title 
with victory off last ball 

THE OVAL : Hampshire (4 
pts) beat Surrey by three runs. 
Hampshire won ute John Player 
League tide for the third time 

yesterday when they beat Suircy 
in a thrilling last-ball finish. 
Surrey, needing ISO, still re- 
quired seven from the last over 
bowled by Connor. Thomas was 
caught at long on from the third 
ball; Needham was run out from 
the fifth; and Gray, needing five 
from the last, could only push it 
into the covets. 

Essex could draw level on 
points in their last match next 
weekend if Hampshire lose the 
same day. Hampshire, though, 
would sufi take the title on the 
basis of more away wins. For 
Hampshire their success brings 
them £19,000 prizemoney and 
consolation for a disappointing 

summer in the county 
championship, in which they 
have been bedevilled by 

Surrey, who were without 
Jesty and Stewart because of 
hamstring injuries, made a poor 
start to their innings when they 
.lost Clinton, Lynch, Richards 
and Ward with only 45 scored. 
Then Butcher and Fhlkner 
added 51 in 14 overs. Butcher’s 
careful 44 ended when he was 
caught at cover when Tremlett 
returned Falkner, making 
room, was bowled by Marshall 
soon afterwards. 

By Richard Street™ 

Surrey were 31 runs short of 
their target, with three overe left, 
when Thomas punished 
TremJen for 15 runs during an 
over in which he was also 
dropped by Connor at deep mid 
off. Nine runs came -from 
Marshall's next over before the 
dramatic dosing six. balls. 

Hampshire's own basting was 

made to look ineffective by tight . 

Surrey bowling ' after Butcher 
won the toss, njr a brag tune it ' 
seemed Hampshire would have 
a meagre ratal to defend Force- 
ful strokes by James, late in the 
day. atoned though, for the 
earlier lentadveness. Parks also 
made useful runs, in a perky 9th 
wicket stand 

Surrey quickly seized control 
when Terry trod on his stumps . 
in the second over and' Gray 
dismissed Greenidge and 
Nicholas in three balls. Robin 
Smith, who leads the Sunday 
averages, was beaten by 
BkkneQ, trying to turn a straight 

BnUen. a young, 6ft 5ln off 
spinner, failed to get a wicket 
but played an important part 
with eight economical overs. 
Butcher swung the ball more 
than anyone and Chris Smith ' 
and Cowley fen to successive 
balls. Smith could manage only 
16 singles from 66 balls. 

Marshall played loosely out- 

side the off stump and was 
'caught behind; Tremlett was 
bri UujrUy run out by Lynch. 
James went on to reach his hrst 
league 50in the final over.

beat Nottinghamshire 

Nottinghamshire have never 
won a John Player match at 
Canterbury and rarely looked 
like doing so yesterday. Bowled 
out for 122, they had four Kent 
batsmen out cheaply. However, 
mice Tavarfc found a batsman to 
stay with him, Graham 
Cowdrey, Kent had little diffi- 
culty in knocking off the runs, 
even when Hadlee came back. 
Tavare finished unbeaten on 63 
with six fours. 

The pilch was one of low 
bounce and on the slow side but 
offered only marginal move- 
ment. There was rarely an 
excuse for the string of law 
scores. Nottinghamshire, who 
won the loss, looked like making 
a reasonable total only when 
Hadlee was in, and even he got 
himself out 

All Kent's bowlers were 
economical Underwood was 
almost as' sparing as at Folke- 
stone on Friday when he re- 
turned what must have been one 
of the most frugal bowling 
analyses ever. The last yoricer he 
produced yesterday that hit - 
Randall's kg stump, speared in 
at his tangled feet, was an 
especially shrewd piece of 

Broad baited 24 overs for 30. . 
a score exceeded only by 
Hadlee, who played some ex- 
cellent lofted drives and chips ' 
over the in-field. Tt was a 

surprise when, having made 31, 
he fell to a slower ball from 

Nottinghamshire Had a fur- 
ther 42 overs remaining when 
their inning s ended. They did 
not help themselves either by 
conceding a number of wides. 
Three of the four batsmen to go 
fell to catches by French, Ben- 
son, Aslett and Christopher 
Cowdrey, all wafting outside off

Jaipur (Reuter) — Krishna- 
machari Srikkanth scored his 
first century for India in one-day 
matches to bdp them to a seven- 
wicket win over Australia in the 
first of six limited-overs inter- 
nationals here yesterday. 

The Australians looked well 
placed after a record opening 
partnership of 212 between 
Boon (1 1 1) and Marsh (104) had 
st ee r e d them to 230 for three off 
47 overs; but India made light of 
their target, cruising to victory 
with six overs to spare. 

Srikkanth won the man-of-

fours and a six in his 102 off 102 
balls, and combining with the 
newcomer. Lamba, to break the

cent record with tries by Gra- 
ham, Redfearn, Woods and 
Race and three goals from 

Castiefbrd, St Helens and 
Wigan also kept up their early 
momentum, St Helens winning 
surprisingly easily 40-20 at 
Leeds, with Halliwell scoring a 
hat-trick of tries. 

Castiefbrd whipped their 

neighbours Wakefield Trinity, 
scoring seven tries In the pro- 
cess. and Wigan thrashed pro- 
moted Leigh 354) with tries 
from Gill (2L Lydon (2), Han- 
ley. Bell and Good way. 

Halifax made it five points 
out of six with a comfortable 
home win over the fading Hull 
side, and Warrington came back 
from 18-10 down ax home to 
Oldham to wm 22-18. their first

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 

With the expertise derived 
from four winning tournaments 
' including the Middlesex —.at 
the end of last season and on 
tour in the United States during 
the summer, the Harlequins 
retained the Wave!] Wakefield 
trophyat the Harlequins-Lord’s 
Taverners sevens tournament at 
the Stoop Memorial ground 

They beat the Lord’s Tavern- 
ers 22-12 in the final helped by a 
defensive abberation which al- 
lowed Dent -to escape three 
tackles and run in from 70 

There were two members of 
the successful English Bulldogs 
side which played in the Spent 
Aid sevens in Cardiff last May 
on each side. Rose and 
Cuswonh for the Taverners and 
Skinner and Olver for the 
Harlequins. The Taverners's led 
L2p6 at the interval through tries 
by Gibson and Brooks, the

converting twice. But Harle- 
quins blotted out the dangerous 
Sieves and ran in tries through 
Thompson. Hunter, Davies and 
Dent with Rose converting three 
of them.

and little explored aspect of the 
Nazi obsession to breed a 
racially pure master race. The

homes for blond, biue-eyed 
children kidnapped in the 
occupied countries on their way 
to adoption bycarefuBy

of the children never saw 
their real families again. Peter 
Tegei was himseif a chBd 
refugee from the Nazis and this

First published in 1785 

‘Our Czechs’ and 


‘their Czechs’ 

in a closed shop 

From Rex Bdkunr, Tennis Correspondent, New York 

The 19S6 United Sates 
championships will be 
remembered as the tour- 
nament in which four players 
born in Czechoslovakia 
turned the singles finals into a 
facsimile of a dosed shop. 
Thai is. obviously, almost 
incredibly unique. One of 
those players. Martina 
Navratilova, is a United 
States citizen and another, 
Ivan Lendl also lives in the 
US. But it was as Czecho- 
slovaks that they became ten- 
nis champions. 

An American lady who 
helps to look after the Press 
corps suggested the other day 
that, the tournament was 
“boiling down to whether our 
Czechs can beat their Czechs”. 
So it turned out, with Lendl 
playing Miloslav Merir in one 
final and Miss Navratilova 
taking on Helena Sukova in 
the other. Medr had con- 
founded the seedings three 
times, by beating Mats 
Wjlander, Joakim Nystrom 
and Boris Becker, and Miss 
Sukova bad done so once, by 
dismissing Chris Lloyd. 

For a time h seemed likely 
that two German teenagers 
would dispute yesterday's 
finals with Czechoslovaks. 
But Steffi Graf, who had three 
match points, was beaten 6-1, 
6-7. 7-6 by Miss Navratilova 
on Saturday in a match that 
had been rained off the pre- 
vious evening. Becker, the 
Wimbledon champion, was 
beaten 4-6. 6-3. 6-4, 3-6. 6-3 by 
Mecir in 3hr I8min. 

Becker was tested by Mecir 
at Wimbledon, but the special 
nature of grass-court tennis 
worked in favour of the 
powerful German. Becker can- 
not win as many easy points 
on hard courts, which offer 
Mecir the true bounce his 
timing demands. For all that 
we expected Becker to blast 
Mecir to defeat: and we were 

Becker, aged 18, is not yet 

sure of himself on hard courts. 
Nor is he sure of himself 

against Mecir. Nobody is. “I 
had no game plan ana at 

respect for 


I had too much 
respect for him.” Becker said 
later. “You never know what 
he's going to do, be has such a 
big return that he can hit a 
winner off my best serve. And 
when I hit a good approach 
he's so fast that he can make a 
good shot. He doesn't serve 
hard but he serves deep. 
Sometimes it's so weak that 
you don't know whether to hit 
it hard or chip it.” 


Lendl (Cz) bt S Edbera (Swe). 7-6, 8- 
2 6-3: M Met* (Cz) bt B Becker 
MG). 4-6, 6-3. 6-4. 3-8. 6-3. 
WOMEN'S SINGLES: Scad-finals: 
M Navratilova (US) bt S Graf (WG), 
6.1, 6-7. 7-6. 

Becker's inhibitions were 
reflected in tactical un- 
certainty and technical errors. 
Too often, he was lured into 
the subtle sparring at which 
the deceptive Mecir excels. 
Again, Mecir displayed a rare 
knack of turning defence into 
attack with one startling shoe. 
“Today I returned very wel- 
land just tried to hit the ball in 
the best place,” Mecir said. “If 
he didn't know where it was 
going, 1 didn't mind. If he did 
know. I didn't mind that 

Miss Gia£ aged 17. made a 
superb recovery aftera first set 
in which she was given a 
hiding. Even during the recur- 
rent. nerve-twanging crises of 
the second and third sets, her 
composure never faltered ex- 
cept for three wayward fore- 
hands. Once Miss Graf had 
settled down, her footwork 
was exemplary and she be- 
came adept at shortening her 
swing and taking the ball early 
in order to frustrate Miss 
Navratilova's assaults. 

Miss Navratilova became 

anxious, sometimes wild- 
eyed. She had great advan- 
tages in her strength and her 
serving and volleying but Miss 
Grafs resilient counters bred 
caution and error. Miss Graf 
won the first tie-break with an 
unexpected ace. In the third 
set Miss Navratilova came 
within a point of serving for 
the match at 5-2 but, amid a 
tension that was almost tan- 
gible, Miss Graf turned 2-4 
into 5-4 and had two match 
points. Each time her fore- 
hand let her down, though the 
second shot was dose. 

In the tie-break Miss Graf 
muffed a forehand at 5-3 but 
had athird match point at 8-7. 
This time Miss Navratilova 
charged and Miss Graf found 
the net in attempting a back- 
hand passing shot. Meantime 
Miss Navratilova, now a 
blend of heavy puncher, crafty 
boxer and. desperate street- 
fjghier. was displaying her 
competitive steel. Miss Graf 
saved two match points. Then 
a forehand error gave Miss 
Navratilova a third chance: 
and a service winner to the 
backhand ended an 18-point 
tie-break and what had, for 
two sets, been a tremulously 
exciting match. 

Medr in victory and Miss 
Graf in defeat somewhat ob- 
scured the memory of Lendf s 
admirable 7-6, 6-2. 6-3 win 
over Stefan Edberg. They 
played a marvellous first set, 
which Edberg lost with a 
backhand approach shot that 
was an inch or so the wrong, 
side of perfection. The out- 
come of that set affected the 
confidence of both men. It 
became increasingly clear that 
the nimble, hard-hitting Lendl 
was always dangerous, that 
there was no chink in his 
armour, whereas Edbeig’s 
forehand was often tentative 
and his renowned serving and 
volleying could not always 
take the strain of Lendl's 
flexible repostes. 

Bouncy Czech: Medr on his way to victory against Becker in their semi-final 


Leng’s fourth title in a row 

By Jenny MacArthur 

To the deafening applause 
of the packed arena Virginia 
Leng, the world and European 
champion, yesterday won the 

Burghtey Remy Martin horse 

trials for the fourth time in 
succession. No other rider has 
won it more than twice. 

Victory was made all the 
sweeter because it came on 
British National Life 
Assurance's eight-year-old, 
Murphy Himself, who had 
never seen anything as big as 
Buighley before. In fact, Mrs 
Leng said afterwards that win- 
ning yesterday gave her as 
much pleasure as winning the 
world championships in May 
on her top horse. Priceless, 
because it proved that Mur- 
phy Himself, whom she chose 
herself as a four-year-old and 

whom she describes as “so 
reliable, so intelligent,” could 
stay the distance required for a 
major three-day event He 
now looks to be an exdl' ' 

prospect for the 198 

Bruce Davidson, from the 
United States, who won the 
first of his two world 
championship titles at Burgh- 
ley in 1974, had to be content 
with runner-up on the 14- 
year-old J J Babu. despite a 
flawless performance over the 
three days. Richard Walker, 
on Accumulator, and Ian 
Stark, on Glenbumie, who 
also finished on their dressage 
score, stayed in third and 
fourth places respectively. 

leaders in the final 
showjumping phase, over a 
fair sized course designed by 
John Doney, came when 
Helen Ogden and Streetlighter 
and Michael Tucker with 
General Bugle each had one 
fence down dropping out of 
the top six. The next three all 
had dear rounds putting enor- 
mous pressure on Mrs Leng, 
who was separated by less 
than a point from Davidson.

It says much for Mrs Lena's 
nerve and ability that, despite 
the pressure, she produced a 
typically well judged dear 
round to claim the £6,000 first 
prize. The sponsors, in 
admiration of her fourth win, 
also presented herwithasetof 
four Baccarat French crystal 
cognac glasses. 

With such a glittering win- 
ner it was easy to overlook the 
several other superb perfor- 
mances. In addition to the top 
four, there was Robert 
Lemieux and The 
Gamesmaster, back on top 
form and finishing in fifth 
place, and then there was 
Loma Clarke and Myross, 
whose sixth place was all the 
more creditable because this 
was the same horse she took to.

Prix and Nigel Mansell finish- 
ing runner-up less than 10 
seconds behind and extending 
his lead in the world 

The two Williams-Honda 
drivers who have now won 
four races each this season 
from 13 starts were given an 
easier task than usual this time 
when their two main 
championship rivals, Alain 
Prost and Ayrton Senna, were 
put out of contention in the 
opening seconds of the race. 

Prost, who had taken sec- 
ond place on the starting grid 
with his Marlboro McLaren, 
failed to start for the parade 
lap because of a broken alter- 
nator and consequent flat 
battery. He moved to his spare 
car and waited for the rest of 
the field to complete then- 
formation lap before joining 
the race behind them from the 
pit road. 

His battle through the field 
into fifth place by lap 21 was 
the highlight of this 51-lap 
contest but it was all to no 
avail A mid-race pit stop to 
refix the nose of ms car cost 
him half a minute and 
dropped him back to ninth, 
then five laps later the black 
flag was held out to call him in 
again because he had infringed 
the race regulations. 

His switch to the spare car 
had been made too late for 
him to take pan in the parade 
lap.But it was all academic 
because Prost’s engine was 
already failing . 

Senna's trouble came mo- 
ments afteT the green starting 
light came on. As he accel- 
erated away from the grid 
something broke in the trans- 

mission ofhis J.PJS. Lotas and 
he freewheeled to a halL 
Johnny Dumfries also retired 
with transmission trouble af- 
ter climbing to ninth place by 
the seventeenth lap. 

Ferrari put in a creditable 
performance on their home 

team were looking with some 
confidence for a good result 
here but Derek Warwick spun 
out of the race on some 
dropped o3 and Riccardo 
Patrese damaged his car when 
he was unable to avoid Patrick 
Tambay, who was in trouble 
with his Lola-ForxL

The Piquet-Mansell battle, 
which took command of the 
race from the sixth lap on- 
wards, was a hard bat clean- 
fought contest with Mansell 
dominant in the fust half and 
Piquet after the mid-race 
stops. “Nigel was very quick 
for the first part," Piquet said 
afterwards, “and I was wor- 
ried I would use too much fuel 
in catching him. Then I lost an 
extra five seconds at the pits 
when my new. right front 
wheel got stuck. Afterwards, I 
went as fast as I dared to catch 
up, then I realized Nigel must 
have been in some sort of 
trouble as I dosed in and 
passed him.** 

Mansell took up the story: 
“For some reason one of my 
seat belts came loose and I 
started to move about in the 
cockpit This meant that I 
wasn't able to steer the car 
with the same sort of precision 
and as a result I started to wear 
out my front tyres quite 

But both drivers agreed it 
had beep a satisfying 'contest 
and as they went into their

slowed, Mansell drew along-

Four years ago Bobby Rob- 
son began his national man- 
agerial career in Scandinavia, 
where England opened their 
European championship cam- 
paign with a 2-2 draw against 
Denmark. Today, as he re- 
turns there for the only dress 
rehearsal before his squad go 
into the same competition, he 
will carry a strong sense or 
dejd. ml ' 

Two days before his open- 
ing night in 1982 he lost two Of 
his certain selections, Coppeii 
and Thompson, through in- 
jury. Two days before leaving 
this, afternoon for an inter- 
national match with Sweden 
in Stockholm he learnt that 
two members of his intended 
line-up. Beardsley and 
Hatelcy, had similarly been 
forced to withdraw. 

Ifthe regrettable breakdown 
in communications between 
Robson and Lineker tore a 
hole in his attacking designs, 
the absence of his second and 
third choices has ripped them 
apart. His list of striking 
possibilities now indude only 
Barnes, Dixon. Waddle and 
Cottee, the West Ham United 
youngster who was sum- 
moned as the lone replace- 
ment on Saturday. 

Even though he has no 
international experience, 
Cottee is the prime candidate. 
He fits the new mould of the 
English centre forward. 
Whereas they were once 
shaped like giant redwood 
trees, they are now as sleek as 
turbo engines. Whereas they 
were once feared for their 
power in the air, they' are 
gaining a reputation for their 
speed over the ground. 

like Lineker and Beardsley, 
Cotiee’s centre of gravity 
scrapes along the floor. His 
acceleration is explosive, his 
control is neat and his aim is 
refined. He confirmed his 
potential last season by scor- 
ing 20 goals and, with timely 
precision,. he added another 
on Saturday a few hours after 
being told ofhis promotion to 
the senior squad. 

Robson would not have 
recalled Hateley, a 

presente xample of the former 

erawho disappointed during 
the World Cup finals, if both 

been - . - 

bringing in Dixon, who is built 
along the same lines as 
Haidey. he is expected to 
select Barnes, who has-been 
living in the shadow of Wad- 
dle on the flank. 

Before the World Cup tie 
against Poland three months 
ago, he was pushed into 
changing strategy and players 
alike. He knew that to persist 
with a midfield line of only 
three and to expect, to compete 
with the strongest nations w 
the -world, his namesake and 
captain had to be fit. But 
Bryan Robson was not Nor 
was an understudy available. 

Since his most influential 
individual is still missing - 
Robson, incidentally, came 
through an A learn match for 
Manchester United on Sat- 
urday and could be fit by next 
weekend — Bobby Robson 
cannot revert to the old sys- 
tem even if he is convinced 
that iL will work. In Mexico « 
became painfully -apparent 
that the use of a winger was a 
dangerously adventurous 
plan. It threatened England’s 
own security as much as that 
of the opposition. 

If the recent performances 
of either Waddle or Barnes 
bad been of a higher quality 
and of a greater consistency, 
he might have persuaded him- 
selfio retain his belief in them. 
He could have introduced his 
other namesake, Stewart, 
against the Swedes on 
Wednesday and prepare for 
the probable return of Bryan 
in next month's opening 
qualifying tie. 

Instead, he is likely to take 
the opportunity .of trying 
Barnes in a central role, where 
he has appeared for Watford, 
and limit future restructuring. 
Anderson, Martin and Wil- 
ldns should fill the gaps that 
have been left by the absences 
of Stevens, Fenwick and Reid 
respectively for the same rea- 
son of convenience. -

Cram and Coe run the 
season’s fastest times 

From Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent; Rieti 

British domination of world 
middle distance running this 
year was emphasized here in 
the gorgeous surroundings of 
the Sab ini Valley, north of 
Rome, yesterday. Steve Cram, 
at 800 metres, then Sebastian 
Coe, at 1,500 metres, ran the 
fastest times of the season, 
with Coe's 3min 29.77sec 
being the equal fourth fastest 
ever. Cram ran I min 43.19sec, 
beating by 0.03sec ’ the time 
with which be won the 
Commonwealth title. 

Before his race Coe had 
looked about as serious as he 
ever seems to get about a 
competition nowadays. And 
the reason was dear at the 
gun. when Ahmed Belkessam 
raced furiously into the lead 
and ran the first lap in 
5336sec. The Algerian, and 
then James Mays, relayed to 
800 metres in lmin 5I.05sec 
and the bell in 2min 34J3sec.

Cram stayed with the 800 ; 
metres, although arriving here 
at past midnight on- the day of , 
the race did not. as he admit- 
ted, put him in the best frame * 
of mind for a fast lime. 

The first surprise was the- 
pacemaker, Darren Clark. The 
world class Australian 400 . 
metres runner and Common- 
wealth stiver medal winner is - 
built like a tank, but used to be . 
an 800 metres runner when he 
was . 14. He was'2! on Sat--,
