wins support 

By Robin Oakley, Political Editor 

The SDP conference, yes- fudge which left all sides ened the Alliance split 

dahming satisfaction. 


V .< 


terday endorsed the tough 
-stand on defence by Dr David 
Owen, the party leader. 

. It supported him and Mr 
David Steel, the Liberal lead- 
er,: in their bid to settle the 
■parties' differences cm the 
replacement of Polaris by 
pursuing their quest for a 
minimum European deter- 
rent- ■ 

: Alliance leadens win DOW 
intensify their drive few agree- 
ment on a minimum Euro- 
deterrent which Dr 
claims could be a 
^tinning point of British de- 
fence policy”, and which will 
as the least prove a handy 
diversion in the nuclear policy 
clash which has seen Alliance 
support drop shaiply in recent 
■opinion polls. 

■’ After yet another coded 
attack on his leadership style 
had been beaten off by a 
margin of 4-1, a delighted Dr 
Owen declared: “Fve got what 
I wpnted - the freedom to go 
for the Labour Party's jugular 
on the crucial question of 
defence at the next election.” 

Party chiefs breathed a sigh 
.of relief after the SDP con- 
ference. meeting at Harrogate, 
.bad - successfully wriggled 
through its biggest problem of 
the week - using the defence 
debate to send conciliatory 
messages to the liberals in 
advance of their conference 
next week without undermin- 
ing their own leader. They

The conference pleased Lib- 
eral observers by fee concil- 
iatory time of platform 
speakers and by the SDP’s 
official welcome for the report 
of the Joint Alliance Commis- 
sion on defence, previously a 
bone of contention between 
Dr Owen and the Liberals. 

. Dr Owen's position was 
preserved by a morion 
confirming that the SDP de-

fence policy agreed in. Tor- 
quay last year remains intact. 

However, the wording of 
the motion supporting exist- 
ing SDP policy was softened. 
Mr John Cartwright, spokes- 
man on defence, agreed that 
the 1985 policy was not en- 
. graved' on tablets of stone but 
would be interpreted -with 
flexibility. 

His platform colleague Mr 
Charles Kennedy affirmed 
that the SDP was not insisting 
that an Alliance government 
should replace Polaris “come 
what may”, but only that it 
would do so in certain circum- 
stances on its judgement of 
future probabilities. 

The tactical needs of the 
moment were met Had the 
SDP insisted on a rigid inter- 
pretation of its past policy 
Liberal activists at fee party's 
assembly in Eastbcprne next 
week might well have deep- 


... . .by 

insisting on gon« bade to then- 
past policies, including the 
total rejection ofPolaris and _ 
refusal to axept the deploy- 
ment of cruise missile s. 

Liberal observers were 
heartened - too by the con- 
ference vote against fee water- 
ing down of opposition 
President Reagan's Star Wars 
initiative. 

The mood of reconciliation 
was set by Dr Owen himself at 
a fringe meeting the night 
before when he said: “We 
should not attempt to bounce 
our libera] partners into any- 
thing they haven’t been able to 
think through.” 

But if the Affiance leaders 
are now dear what is agreed 
fee general public are likely to 
be much less so. The basic 
difference between the Lib- 
erals and fee SDP on defence 
remains. 

While the liberals are con- 
tent to postpone the question 
of replacing Polaris, believing 
that replacement of Britain's 
ageing deterrent will not be 
necessary nnlesc . Thing* go 
badly wrong in the super- 
powers arms' talks, fee SDP 
leadership’s view is that Po- 
laris win have to be replaced 
unless something remarkable 
lu mpens. 

Although the platform won 
every vote it wanted yesterday 
Dr Owen was warned that he 
does not speak for afl his 
members. Other delegates 
urged him not to make up

Liberals resisted 



DrT^vidO«rayestm!ay 

from 

had upper 
of fee SW for an 
offical merger wife fee liberal 
party. ; " - * 

Although other members of 
fee "gang of .four" Mr Roy 
Jenkins, Mis Shixky. Williams 
and Mr Bill Rodgers, believe 
increasingly feat such' a move 
should take place and would 
bolster the Alliance’s doctoral 
appeal, the SDP leader in- 
sisted fee time was not right 
and any joining of forces 
should evolve naturally. 


“At fee moment we decide 
things in fee Alliance rather, if 
you like, like fee Naio affi- 
ance, through negotiation, 
through give and take. And I 
think that's fee best way to 
grow together and to evolve 
together. Of course, ul- 
timately, the longer this pro- 
cess goes on, the more it's 
likely to lead eventually to a 
decision xo form an affiance 
party. 

“At that stage, I think it 
would be a genuine alliance 
party. It wouldn't, be the 
Liberal Party nor fee SDP.” 


fir- Owen, ixgerviewed on 
London . Weekend 
Television's Weekend World, 
accepted that in some parts of 
the., country, an effective 
merger .had already taken, 
place between local SDP and 
liberal parties, but in other 
areas there were still dif- 
ferences on policy or attitude. 

He added: ^So if s in fee 
process of evolution. But 
what's wrong wife evolution? 
I'm a doctor. I'm a natural 
scientist, feat’s fee whole way 
feat things happen, that’s 
what I wife to see in politics 
and life.” 


Even under a proportional 
representation voting system, 
there was a lot to be said for a 
four-party democracy. “At fee 
moment, certainly it's my 
preference." 

Some Social Democrats are 
convinced a mercer will have 
to take place after the next 
general election, wife or with- 
out an electoral breakthrough, 
and believe fear party leader’s 
resistance stems from the fear 
that wife a majority of Liberal 
MPs, Mr Steel would become 
leader of the Affiance. 


Lord King is favourite 
to take over at BBC 


The way appears clear for 
Lord King of .Wartnaby to 
become fee BBCs new chair- 
man of governors (Nicholas 
Wood writes). 

It was disclosed yesterday 
that the British Airways chair- 
man is on the shortlist that Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home 
Secretary, will submit to the 
Prime Minister within the 
next few days. 

Mrs Thatcher is known to 
favour fee appointment of fee 
cost-cutting industrialist who 
in five years has transformed 
the commercial prospects of 
fee state airiine, bringing it to 
fee brink of privatization. \ 


But Mr Hurd is understood 


to want a less abrasive figure 
to take over from Mr Stuart 
Young, who died late test 
montir.’ He is said to 
befightipg a rearguard actum 
to get his way. 

Other names said to be 
going forward include Lord 
Barnett, vice-chairman of fee 
governors, and Sir lan 
Trefeowan, former direct or- 
generaL 

' The new chairman will face- 
a host, of problems, not least

Prince helps to heal Gurkha rift 


By David Sapsted 

Handshakes from the 
Prince of Wales yesterday 
marked the start of the healing 
process in Britain's relations 
wife its Gurkha soldiers. 

The Prince, Colonel-tn- 
Chief of fee 2nd King Edward 
Virs Goorkhas - fee Sirmoor 
Rifles - held private conversa- 
tions wife the men after taking 


fee salute in a ceremony at 
Church Crookham, Hamp- 
shire, to mark the battalion's 
centenary. 

Britain's long association 
wife fee Nepalese troops has 
come under strain this sum- 
mer after fee dismissal of 
more than 100 Gurkhas after 
an assault on their command- 
ing officer, and the jailing of 
five others from fee Church 


Crookham base on drugs 
offences. 

Prince Charles, who spent 
four hours at fee event, spent 
much of the time dialling to 
fee Gurkhas, over lunch and 
on parade. 

One of fee organizers said: 
“We decided not to have 
speeches but to keep fee 
celebrations fairly informal”

Seventeen 
killed In 
Greek 
earthquake 

From Mario Modhmo 
Athens 

Seventeen people, inducting 
a baby aged one month, were 
(rifled and 70 per cent of the 
btrikfings were damaged when 
an earthquake, measured at 
62 on the Richter «cate, lot 
Kahtmata in southern Greece 
on Saturday night. 

Scores of people were in- 
jured and dogs were flown in 
from Ranee to search for 
survivors in fee nrins ofa five- 
storey residential building 
near the seafront 
Authorities urged pea 
not to go near their homes 
r of more tremors. They 
fear a stronger quake could 
cause greater destruction. 

Resoie efforts in Kalamata 
centred on a high rise Mock of 
17 apartments which was flat- 
tened by fee earthquake, trap- 
ping an estimated 20-30 resi- 
dents. Workers pulled 14 
people out alive, including 
Mis Angelica Papadopoulos, 
wife ofa Greek Air Force offi- 
cer who is believed to have 
died wife their two children. 

Two brothers, aged 28 and 
34, were killed while trying to 
park their car outside when 
the building crashed. Three 
teenagers watching television 
in a second floor flat are still 
missing. 

Officials say 112 b uilding s 
completely or partly collapsed 
and cracks scarred 1,150 old 
houses and buildings. One 
cannot, move in fee streets 
without stepping over 
mounds of rubble and broken 
glass. Streets are littered wife 
the contents of shop windows. 

Miss Claire Tanbridge from 
Strafford-on-Avon and Mr Si- 
mon Willey, from Ctapham, 
who were heatting for Mystra, 
said they saw people steeping 
alongside the track when their 
train pulled into Kalamata at 
7.30 am on Sunday. 

• Strike postponed: The exec- 
utive committee of the Union 
of Greek Public Employees 
announced that they had post- 
poned a strike against wage 
freezes and austerity measures 
which was due to start today 
because of fee emergency 
situation created after the 
earthquake (Reuter reports). -

Secret deal over 
Daniloff fails to 
relieve tensions 

Prom Christopher Walker, Moscow 


Tension between fee super- 
powers over mutual charges of 
espionage remained high yes- 
terday despite the secret deal 
between Moscow and Wash- 
ington which secured the re- 
lease into ambassadorial 
custody bT. Mr .Nicholas 
Ddniloffi 'fee TjIS journalist, in 
exchange for a similar con-- 
cession to a Soviet physicist in 
the US, Mr Gennady 
Zakharov, also held on spying 
charges. 

Giving his first account of 
his 13-day ordeal in Moscow’s 
grim Lefortovo military jail, 
Mr Daniloff yesterday accused 
fee KGB of subjecting him to 
^mental torture” and of fram- 
ing him wife planted material 
He also secured the Kremlin 
of running a campaign de- 
signed to undermine further 
his credibility. 

In protest against Mr 
DanflofPs treatment, a num- 
ber of key American speakers 
have polled, out of a debate 
between US and Soviet policy 
makers due to open today in 
the Baltic resort of Jurmala. 

At the same time, Soviet 
television announced plans to 
broadcast an interview with 
Mr Edward Lee Howard, fee 
Central Intelligence Agency 
defector who arrived here 
secretly last month. 

At one of fee most emotive 
press inferences seen in Mos- 
cow for many years, Mr 
Daniloff looking haggered 
and drained despite snazzy 
new clothing, told more than 
100 Western reporters that 
they were all potential targets 
for a similar KGB “set-up” 
that had led to him being 
“sand-bagged” by eight under- 
cover men on August 30. 

“I am afraid that what 


happened to me is a problem 
which involves all of yon,” Mr 
Daniloff told the correspon- 
dents, many of whom queued 
after to shake him warmly by 
fee hand. 

“I am afraid that my arrest 
is an intimidating act for you.' 
I only hope that you win 
respond to this in a firm way. I 
am sore that you win.”

Chirac 
clamps 
down on 
terror 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

All foreigners entering Fra- 
nce. including Americans but 
not EEC and Swiss nationals, 
will need a visa from tomor- 
row as pan of tough new anti- 
terrorist measures announced 
yesterday by fee French Prime 
Minister, M Jacques Chirac. 

The announcement, which 
includes the drafting of 2,000 
soldiers to patrol French bor- 
ders, came less than an hour 
after yet another bomb had 
gone off in fee capital this 
time in a car park under a pub 
on fee Champs Elysees, seri- 
ously injuring force people. 

There was an almost 
simultaneous blacking-out of 
television screens throughout 
Paris, after a short circuit 
caused by the explosion pro- 
duced a breakdown in fee 
Eiffel Tower transmitters. 

M Chirac, sounding calm 
and determined, said m his 
announcement on national 
radio that fee Government 
had decided on fee immediate 
introduction of four measures 
to help stamp out “fee leprosy 
which is terrorism”. 

The 2,000 drafted soldiers 
will also assist police and 
customs officials in airports 
and ports. 

Co-operation between Fran- 
ce's security and intelligence 
services, well known for jeal- 
ousies and rivalries, is to be 
streamlined and strengthened, 
and internationalco-operation 
on terrorism is to be strength- 
ened, including co-operation 
wife fee Soviet Union. 

Owners of shops, res- 
taurants, cinemas and other 
privately-owned public places 
are to be asked to introduce 
routine security checks, and 
all . public services will be 
required to do the same. 

M Chirac said these mea- 
sures had been taken in addi- 
tion to fee anti-terrorist 
legislation already introduced 
by the Government which 
provide, among other things, 
for specialist centralized 
courts to tty terrorists; spot 
identity cheques by police; 
extended detention without 
charge fbrsuspected terrorists; 
reduced prison sentences for 
convicted terrorists willing to 
turn “supergrass”; tighter 
restrictions on immigrants 
coming into fee country, and 
greater facility in fee expul- 
sion of unwanted foreigners. 

Twelve people of Middle 
East origin, arrested in a police 
raid on Friday following fee 
bomb attack at the Paris City 
Hall fee previous Monday, 
were still being detained lak 
night, awaiting expulsion 
without any charges having 
been brought. 

M Chirac insisted there was 
absolutely no question of free- 
ing fee three convicted Arab 
prisoners whose liberation has 
been demanded by the Beirut- 
based group which has carried 
out most of fee terrorist 
attacks in France this year. 


Baker to 
setup 
science 
schools 

By Nicholas Wood 

Political Reporter 

A plan to set up a network of 
some 20 government-funded 
secondary schools specializing 
in technical subjects, will be 
unveiled by Mr Kenneth 
Baker. Secretary of State for 
Education and Science, at next 
month’s Conservative Party 
conference. 

The move, fee first of- 
ficially sanctioned break with 
fee comprehensive system, 
will enrage the Labour Party 
and a large body or opinion in 
the teachers' unions. But it 
will hearten many right-wing 
Tory MPs who want radical 
steps aimed at extending pa- 
rental choice. 

The scheme is backed by 
Mrs Thatcher and Mr Nor- 
man Tebbiu party chairman, 
who believe that more money 
is not a sufficient answer, 
Mr Baker will seek to 
counter the charge feat he is 
paving fee way for a return to 
fee selective system, by stress- 
ing that specialist schools arc 
needed to meet the growing 
demands of industry for sci- 
entists and technologists. 

His proposals are closely 
modelled on a discussion 
paper drawn up in fee Depart- 
ment of Education and Sci- 
ence under his predecessor Sir 
Keith Joseph. 

This envisaged 16 to 20 
“technology schools” in big 
cities, each catering for 1,000 
selected pupils, who would 
not pay foes. 

They would be admitted at 
fee age of 11 and from 14 to 18 
would concentrate on subjects 
such as the sciences, comput- 
ing, craft, design and technol- 
ogy and business studies. 

The new institutions would 
be funded directly from 
Whitehall and not through fee 
104 local education authori- 
ties which, under the 1944 
Education Act, are currently 
resportsible for fee £8 biffion- 
a-year schools system. 

The capital costs of setting 
up fee network are estimated 
at £5 million. 

It is not yet clear whether 
Mr Baker will announce an 
immediate go-ahead for the 
new schools or whether he will 
make their introduction a 
manifesto commitment. 

The shift towards a bigger 
place for technology in schools 
continues a process begun 
under Sir Keith's tenure of 
office, when the Technical and 
Vocational Education Initiar 
tive was launched in 1983. 

Its aim is to make fee 
curriculum more relevant to 
industry and commerce for 
fee 14 to 18 age group. Next 
tr, backed by a budget of 
3 million, the scheme is 
being extended to all schools. 

At fee same time, fee 
Government is giving univer- 
sities and polytechnics an 
extra £43 million by fee end of 
fee decade to pay for the 
training of 5,000 more en- 
gineers and technologists. 


interrogated for four hours a 
day for two weeks is a very, 
very hard burden,” he said. 
“Frankly, I have to tell you, it 
was mental torture.” 

Mr Daniloff, who had to 
delay his keenly-awaited press 
conference for 24 hours be- 
cause of his weak condition, 
said that after fee interroga- 
tion sessions - conducted by a 
civilized and sophisticated 
KGB colonel — it had been 
impossible to forget about his 
problems on returning to his 
cell Colleagues noted he ap- 
peared to have been greatly 
shaken by his ordeal

The week-long General

dispute over agriculture. US 
officials have said they will 
walk out if strong language to

The three main components

The sites range from one in 
West Scotland, with low sul-

Tory Vets’ aim to 
win whips contest 

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


Tory “wets", smarting from 
their reversals in last week's 
ministerial reshuffle, are plan- 
ning 10 exact revenge on the 
resurgent right of the party by 
snapping up the two vacancies 
in the Whips Office: 

They have chosen Mr 
Charles Wardfe. MP for 
Bexhill and Battle, and Mr 
Nicholas Soames, MP for 
Crawley, as their candidates in 
a contest that should be settled 
this week. 

The right, only now emerg- 
ing from the euphoria that 
greeted the advancement of 
such standard bearers as Mrs 
.Angela Rumbold and Mrs 
Edwina Currie, are mustering 
a counterattack. 

They are beginning to press 
the claims of Mr Eric Forth, 
MP for Mid Worcestershire. 
Mr Michael Forsyth, MP for 
Stirling and Mrs Marion Roe, 
MP for Broxbourne. 

The vacancies in the 14- 
strong Whips Office were 
created by the promotion of 
Mr Archibald Hamilton, a 
right-winger, to a junior post 
at defence and the move by 
Mr Donald Thompson, on the 
centre-left, to an equivalent 
post at agriculture. 

This leaves unchanged the 
delicate political make-up of 
government business man- 
agers which, according to 
right-wingers, already has a 
slightly s oggy character. 

Talks on 
police 
watchdog 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 

Senior police officers are to 
meet Sir Cedi Gothier about 
the new Police Complaints 
Authority of which he is 
chairman. They will discuss 
difficulties over the interpreta- 
tion of police regulations and 
problems over the way in- 
vestigations are run and what 
they represent. 

Some chief officers are said 
not to appreciate that the 
authority's role is often to 
show whether there isa case to 
answer, rather than to provide 
a complete investigation lead- 
ing to immediate action. 

The’ meeting is to be ar- 
ranged by Home Office of- 
ficials after a discussion at the 
meeting of the Association of 
Chief Police Officers, 
representing chief constables 
and other senior ranks, last 
week. 

Some concern was ex- 
pressed that the authority had 
adopted a “high profile" — 
although it was accepted that, : 
as a new institution, the 
.authoritv needed to establish 
itself in ihe public’s mind.

theft, which -.has left many 
small companies with crip-

calls from road hauliers for the 
establishment of a national 
register of stolen lorries. 

Mr John Coates, financial 
adviser to a Cambridge haul- 
age company that has lost four 
lorries in the past six months, 
each valued at £35,000, said:

gives thieves easy access to the 
gear box and the engine: 

In a recent incident in 
Hertford, five Bedford TLs 
were stripped of their engines 
and gear boxes within two 
hours. 

Lxttiewoods a haulage firm 
that has lost four vehicles 
since February, said: “This 
kind of theft is dearly on the 
increase and it is the vehides 
themselves, not the contents, 
that the thieves are after." 


Police officers believe that 
the sudden increase in theft 
might be related to the 
planned phasing out of Bed- 
ford heavy and medium-duty 
lorries at the Dunstable plant 
and fears that spare parts 
might be difficult to get.

Since 1960, Bedford has 
produced more than two and a 
quarter million Ionics, more 
than 60 percent of which have 
been exported, particularly to 
Third World countries. - 

But the company insists 
that it has no plans to stop 
producing spare parts. 

None the less, some haulage 
companies believe that 
“highly professional gangs” 
have emerged that are supply- 
ing an extremely lucrative 
overseas market with stolen 
lorries and spare parts. 


Anatoly Karpov, the former 
world chess champion, in his 
bid to regain the title which he 
lost last year. 

In the fifteenth game of ihe 
series on Friday, he began in 
o p p r essive mood. He chose to 
combat Kasparov's habitual 
Grunfeld defence with a line 
not used at world champion- 
ship level since the Petrosian- 
Botvinnilt match in 1963. 

Karpov's 12th move. e5> 
was a bold thrust in the centre 
of the board, which appeared 
to surprise Kasparov and 
force him 10 spend much time 
m thought. 

However, Kasparov aides 
disclosed that this attack came 
as no surprise to the world 
champion. They said that the 
plan of defence would involve 
a knight retreat to the back 
rank, which Kasparov actually 
played. 

Karpov, in bis turn, seemed 
utterly nonplussed by the 
manoeuvre and consumed no 
le ss t han l hour and 20 
minutes over his 16th and 
17th moves. It became clear at 
that point that Kasparov 
would have no difficulty in 
regaining the pawn he had 
temporarily sacrificed. 

Karpov seemed more anx- 
ious to secure his own position 
t han to embark on any fresh 
attack. After a series of ex- 
changes a position arose in 
which each ride had rook, 
knight and bishop. The bish- 
ops, however, were operating 
on squares of opposite colour. 

Fresh line 
on heart 
disease 

By John Young 

The “obsession” with blam- 
ing saturated fats, and dairy 
products in particular, for 
causing heart attacks and 
other coronary ailments is 
misguided, the annual con- 
ference of the British Vet- 
erinary Association was told 
in Brighton at the weekend. 

Dr Duncan Pickard, a lec- 
turer in animal physiology 
and nutrition at Leeds 
University, said that no one 
should believe that . the 
chances of suffering from 
heart disease would be re- 
duced by not eating butter and 
by drinking skimmed milk. 

The Committee on Medical 
Aspects of Food Policy repot 
in July 1984 singled out dairy 


inevitable. 

After black’s 29th move. 
Kasparov was walking con- 
fidently on the stage, while 
Karpov seemed lost in 
thought. Suddenly the former 
champion offered s draw, 
which Kasparov immediately 
accepted. 

The score is for 
Kasparov 10 6.5 for Karpov, 
and Kasparov needs only 12 
points to keep his tide.

Heart test 
on drugs 
raid chief 

The police officer who 
headed the operation which 
sparked off rioting in the St 
Paul's area of Bristol was 
taken to hospital yesterday 
with a suspected heart attack. 

Mr Malcolm Popperwdl, 
aged 52. assistant chief con- 
stable of Avon and Somerset 
police, had complained of 
chest pains after three days co- 
ordinating the police in Op- 
eration Delivery. 

He also bore the brunt of 
criticism levelled at the force 
at public meetings over its 
tactics during raids in the red- 
tight area. 

Mr ^PopperweU, a police- 
man for 32 years, was at home 
when he first fell iO. Staff at 
the Southmead Hospital in

last night was described as 
“comfortable", were carrying

By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

The decision by General 
Motors to cease commercial 
lorry manufacture in Britain 
will probably be the last of the 
big closures in the European 
industry in the short term. 

Observers of the commer- 
cial vehicle scene, which still 
presents a picture of de- 
pression and over-capacity, 
believe that more mergers 
could be on the cards and jobs 
will continue to be lost, but 
that most companies will now 
hold on even more strongly to 
their manufacturing bases in 
the hope of demand rising. 

Particularly vulnerable, 
however, are the smaller, in- 
dependent lorry makers, 
including Leyland Vehicles 
and ENASA, of Spain, which 
will continue to be “eyed" by 
potential purchasers. 

The Government is 
committed to the privatiza- 
tion of Leyland, although it is 
by no means certain that the 
group's new owner would 
come from the motor 
industry. 

Another candidate for 
change, at least in part, is 
Renault's commercial vehicle 
operation, RVL, which is keen 
10 sell its Spanish facilities. 

Unlike General Motors’ 

! Bedford, which has an ageing 
product range, most of the big 
European tony makers have 
introduced new ranges and are 
poised to do battle for an EEC 
market that looks like expand- 
ing slowly in the next few 
years. 

DRI Europe, the forecasting 
group, predicts that total de- 


chances of improving their the National Unioo of Journ- 
diet would be much greater." alists not to cross picket lines 


mand in seven key EEC 
markets should rise from 

1.117.000 last year to 

1.21 4.000 in 1990. 

Output, however, is ex- 
pected to remain at last year’s 
level of 1,343,000 for the next 
two years and then climb to 

1.442.000 by the end of the 
decade. 

Much of the growing but 
cautious optimism arises from 
the collapse in oil prices which 
is expected to feed through 

Ley's Castings of Derby is 
to make 270 workers redun- 
dant because of the decline in 
the British commercial motor 
industry. Unions are arrang- 
ing an immediate meeting with 
the management today. 

The company makes cast- 
ings for the a utomoti ve in- 
dustry . but Mr Michael 
Davies, fl»e man a g in g directo r . 
said the redundancies came 
after VanxhaU's intention to 
stop muiahctBrin medium 
and heavy tracks m the UK 
and a reduced market from 
Austin Rover and Massey 
Fergnson. 

Mr Fred Schmid, the works 
convener, said they intended to 
get the best possible terms for 
those made redundan t. 

into greater demand for lor- 
ries. Thai is countered by the 
collapse of demand in some of 
the traditional African mar- 
kets. 

DRI says that a third of 
European output that is sold 
outside Western Europe is at 
risk. 

In Britain, all the leading 


manufacturers win be grap- 
pling for a slice of the 10 per 
cent of the market now to be 
made available after the Bed- 
ford closure: Leyland Vehicles 
certainly should benefit, but 
the big Europeans, including 
the market leader, Daimler 
Benz, will be moving in 
smartly. 

Leyland also has to combat 
the newly created Iveco Ford 
Truck, formed this summer by 
an amalgamation of Ford of 
Britain's heavy trade business 
with that of the Fiat-owned 
Iveco. I FT has a target of 25 
per cent of the domestic 
market and claims now to 
have die strongest d e al e r net- 
work in the land. 

Three years ago, it was 
probably true that the industry 
suffered from 40 per cent 
over-caparity, according to 
Mr John Lawson of DRI, but 
today the figure is lower. 

Companies previously in 
trouble, such as MAN, ofWest 
Germany, and Iveco, the Rat 
subsidiary, are now looking 
healthier.

Farm prices 
boom despite 
grain surplus 

While grain stores remain 
full to overflowing with un- 
sold wheat and barley from 
last ye ar, fa nners are eryoyrag 
unexpectedly high prices for 
this year’s harvest (our Agri- 
culture Correspondent 
writes). 

Bread-making wheat was 
trading last week at about 
£118 a tonne, feed wheat at 
about £105 and top ^quality 
malting bailey at up to £13$ 
their highest seasonal level for 
at least two years. 

The reason for the paradox 
is that despite the boom, spot

Unsnpervised trainee

Hospital patients are bring

carrying out unsupervised op-

College of Health. 

■ A study of more than 1,500 
gall bladder operations found 
that a junior surgeon had been 
Operating without supervision 
m 85 per cent of the cases

ByJifl Sherman 
Emergency surgery is often 
carried out at night and at 
weekends without consultant 
supervision by surgeons in 
training, the college says. 

_ Trainee surgeons are some- 
times, taking serious decisions 
about patients with consultant 
surgeons playing no pan, 
according to the preliminary 
findings of a confidential in- 
quiry into the cases of people 
who died before, during or 
after operations.

Call for competition to 
cure ‘inferior’ NHS 

By a Staff Reporter 




; Britons are having to pvt op 
with inferior health services 
Offering second-class treat- 
ment because of the lack of 
competition In health-care 
pwisisa, a report published 
today says. 

The report, from the in- 
dependent research group the 
Justifate of Economic Affairs, 
nays that the National Health 

jService's monopoly is stifling 

medical advances and is faO- 
BEg to meet the demands of the 
.sick because of budget con- 
straints. 

v The report also says that the 
‘domination of the General 
■Medical Council is partly to 
Dame for Britain's retarded 
services. The GMCs pro- 
Tessioua] entry restrictions 
and 'code of -ethics mUHnted 
against alternative prac- 
titioners such as osteopaths. 

The report's author. Dr 
David Green, a former Labour 
Party activist, argues: “We 
have paid too high a price for 
the NHS in the routine denial 
or delaying of treatment to 
hundreds of thousands of our 


citizens because of budget 
limitations and in lost 
opportunities for innovation". 

The health service should 
no longer be funded predomi- 
nantly fey taxation, and people 
should be able to choose bow 
mnch they wanted to spend. 

The report claims that in 
America a system on those 
tines has resulted in a better 
and cheaper health service, 
despite initial problems that 
led to soaring charges and 
bankrupted patients. 

A huge increase in the 
supply of doctors and the 
intervention of the Federal 
-Trade Commission to break 

medicine had resnhtsMn^an 
explosion of competition. 

.. That included the emer- 
gence of “health maintenance 
organizations" funded by 
subscription, where doctors 
and hospitals work together 
within a fixed budget to pro- 
vide a range of health services.

due to a shortage of consul- 
tants. We need far more 
consultants' than the DHSS is 
currently proposing, and they 
should be raorebftcn on duty 
at night and at the weekends.” 

However, Miss Rigge Op- 
posed government proposals 
to bring in a new non- 
specialist grade of doctor at 
sub-consultant level, which 
she said would take away the 
patient's right to see a 
consultant. 

The college also wants to see 
greater local audits of medical 
staff It supports the extension 
of meetings where surgeons 
and anaesthetists review the 
cases of all patients who have 
died or developed complica- 
tions after surgery, called 
“deatb-and-disasier” meet- 
ings, which already happen at 
some hospitals. 

Mr Ian Todd, president of 
the Royal College of Surgeons, 
said that, although most se- 
nior registrars were capable of 
undertaking operations with- 
out supervision, he would 
expea senior house officers 
and registrars to work under a 
consultant, even if he or she 
was operating in a. twin 
theatre. 

Mr Paddy ■ Ross, deputy 
chairman of the British Medi- 
cal Consultants' Committee, 
writiig in the same edition of 
Self Health, defended the 
profession’s training methods 
and argued that the only way 
to learn to become a com- 
petent surgeon was to operate. 

He emphasized that most 
surgeons had 12 to 14 years' 
experience before they 
reached consultant leveL

Financiers 
add to cost 
> of homes 

Workers in the booming 
financial services industry, 
armed with high salaries and 
low-rate mortgages, are push- 
ing up urban house prices. 

. Nearly one in five people 
works in some branch of 
finance, and research - has 
shown lhat they are hoping to 
fart house -price increases.- - 

• London, Manchester, Edin- 
burgh and Glasgow, all with 
important finance-based busi- 
nesses, face rising prices that 
create problems for low-in- 
come families buying homes. 

The director of the Centre 
for Housing Research, Mr 
Duncan MacLennan, said: 
“The low-rate mortgages 
available to people working, in 
financial services are a major 
advantage to those people**. 

He added: "These people, 
with growing incomes, are 
moving back to city centres, 
where there is an acute short- 
age of housing for lower 
income groups" 

. The "bidding-up" process 
had a knock-on effect in areas 
hear the financial cities, he 
added. 

An economist at the Henley 
Centre for Forecasting, Mr 
Keith Blakemore, raid that the 
salaries explosion m. the City 
and an influx of wealthy 
foreign financiers had added 
to the London house price 
spiral. 

But one ray of hope, he sard, 
was that after the initial boom 
jn finance-related employ- 
ment, new technology might 
start to stabilize the number of 
people needed in the industry. 
It might also make it possible 
for finance staff to work from 
home, relieving pressure on 
dty centre housing. 

Back-to- back 
houses return 

• The back-to-back house, 
symbol of the slums built in 
Viaorian Britain and out- 
lawed this century for health 
reasons, is emerging again in a 
new guise in an attempt to 
provide a home for first-time 
buyers (our Property 
Correspondentwrites). 

A development of 20 two- 
storey back-to-back houses at 
Tollgate Court, Stanway, Es- 
sex. by Robert Watt& a 
builder, of Commercial Con- 
struction of Colchester, has 
received planning permission 
from the local council, despite 
fears that it could lead to the 
slums of the future. 

• Council planners believe it 
to be the first time that such 
houses have been built in 
Britain since 1895 when they 
were made illegal because of 
the health hazards caused by 
drainage problems. 

Now that it is possible to 
overcome the original health 
problems there is no reason, 
or legislation, to prevent the 
builders putting up houses 
back-to-back again. 

Mr Michael Shepherd, the 
borough planner, said that 
they could not oppose the 
development, although the 
department was uneasy about 
the return of badc-io-back 
housing, 

.Dr Peter Snell, who lives 
next door to the site, said the 
development was of "poky 
little apanments which will be 
flums in a very few years". 


Till and cancer’ 
report criticized 


British medical researchers 
have criticized a study from 
Sweden which shows a link 
between breast cancer and the 
contraceptive pilL 

The -study, undertaken by 
the Swedish Cancer Society in 
'Stockholm and due to be 
pubtisbed this week, is under- 
stood to reveaT that women 
who use the, pill long-term 
before, .the age of 25 are at 
greater risk of the disease than 
those using other forms of 
contraception. 

But Professor Malcolm 
Pike, of the Imperial Cancer 
Research Fund unit in Ox- 
ford, whose own study in 1983 
also found an increased risk 
among young long-term users 
of some types of the pill, 
criticized the study for failii 
to distinguish between 
ferrot brands. 

Professor Pike, who has not 
seen a copy of the paper but

has heard of its findings, says | 
that most research undertaken 
on the health effects of the mil, 
for example blood clotting, 
bad found different effects] 
from different brands. 

“Our study in 1983 identi- 
fied which pills did what- I 
think that at the moment there 
are pills which prevent breast 
cancer and those which in- 
crease the risk." 

. The Imperial Cancer Re- 
search Fund and the Cancer 
Research Campaign are carry- 
ing out a survey to ensure that 
brand information collected is 
correct. 

Professor Pike sai± “Breast 
cancer is still the most preva- 
lent cancer in women. 
“Women should make sure 
that they are on the lowest 
dose pill needed to be effective 
as a contraceptive.”

Direct TV 
for Britain 
from NBC 

NBC is set to become the 
second American television 
network to free itself from its 
traditional role of programme 
supplier to the BBC and ITV 
companies and to start 
transmitting programmes di- 
rectly to British viewers. 

The strongest of the big 
three American programme 
services, NBC plans to start 
satellite distribution of news 
programmes to British tele- 
vision audiences next year. 
The American 24-hour-a-day 
channel. Cable News Net- 
work. has previously an- 
nounced similar plans. 

Initially, it is expected that 
NBC will transmit by satellite 
its two most popular news 
broadcasts. Nightly News and 
the Today Show, the Ameri- 
can breakfast television pro- 
gramme. 

The program es are expected 
to be available to hotels, cable 
television operators, and the 
estimated 10,000 Britons who 
have so far equipped them- 
selves with home satellite- 
receiving equipment. 

CBS hopes to expand dis- 
tribution of its evening news 
programme to wider Euro- 
pean audiences. 

ABC, the third of the main 
American services, is said to 
be working on a plan to 
transmit news and entertain- 
ment programmes to Euro- 
pean audiences. 


Channel 4 
film comes 
under fire 

The first of Channel Four’s 
programmes to cany a warn- 
ing symbol in the corner of the 
screen to denote scenes of 
violence, sex and bad language 
has been criticized tv Mrs 
Maty Whitehouse, president 
of the National Viewers' and 
Listeners' Association. 

“It's not good enough to 
slap on a warning symbol and 
then indulge iu sadistic mad- 
ness of this kind", she said. 

Themroc, a 1972 film by 
Claude Faraldo in which a 
slave worker gives up work to 
five like a caveman, will be 
shown late on Friday night, 
Throughout the screening 
the “special discretion 
required” red triangle will 
appear in the top left comer. 
The symbol was agreed last 
month as the best way of 
warning- viewers about pro- 
grammes that might cause 
offence. Mrs Whitehouse said 
yesterday that she is sending a 
letter of complaint to Lord 
Thomson of Monifieth, chair- 
man of the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority. 

“It is a nightmarish 
fantasy”, she said. “It includes 
gross orgies, incest and de- 
praved and perverted violence 
in which two policemen are 
killed and eaten." Channel 
Four said: "We think it is a 
film well worth showing and 
that viewers will be grateful 
that it is being shown

Children 
rescued 
in African 
adventure 

By AngeHa Johnson 
A mother’s 2, 500-mile jour- 
ney through North Africa to 
snatch her children from their 
father in Algeria has ended 
happily with a family celebra- 
tion in London. 

But Mrs Bernadette 
Chigara, aged 28, of County 
Wexford, in the Irish Repub- 
lic, says she will now have to 
five with the fear that her 
Algerian husband may try to 
grab the children -back from 
her. 

Mis Chigara and her 
brother, Mr PJ. O'Brien, 
smuggled her son N online, 
aged six, and daughter Nadia, 
aged four, back to Britain and 
they arrived at Heathrow Air- 
port at the weekend. - 
Dirty and -exhausted, they 
kissed the airport tarmac with 
relief after spending more 
than five days travelling to get 
the children away from their 
Muslim father Muhammad. 

Mrs Chigara's ordeal began 
in June when her estranged 
husband took the children 
away after -taking them to a' 
zoo. 

She said: “I was devastated, 
but when I went to the 
authorities they said they 
could do nothing. 1 went to see 
him and the children in 
Algeria, but he would not let 
me take them back to 
Ireland.” 

She and her brother, who 
manages a public house in 
Edgware, north London, then 
planned their African 
expedition. 

They flew to Algeria last 
Monday and, while Mr 
O’Brien waited in an hotel, 
Mrs Chigara went to her 
husband. He allowed her to 
stay after taking her passport 
so that she could not flee the 
country. 

But Mrs Chigara had a 
second passport and the next 
day she took the children and 
they began the long trek home. 
They kept on the move, 



Mrs Bernadette Chigara back in England with her son Nordine and daughter Nadia. 


using trains, buses and taxis to 
find a port with a ship leaving 
for Morocco. 

For three days they trav- 
elled hundreds of miles to 
three different ports, avoiding 
airports in case officials had 
been forewarned. During their 
flight Mrs Chigara was slightly 
injured when she fell from a 
train and her purse was stolen 
with more than £100 in it. 

They arrived at the 
Algerian / Moroccan border 
ana posed as day trippers to 
the frontier town of Augda. 

"That was probably the 
worst moment”, Mrs Chigara 


said. "I knew we looked 
suspicious carrying only one 
suitcase and covered in dust 
and dirt. We waited over two 
hours while they checked our 
passports and asked us 
questions. 

“1 prayed to God they 
would lei us cross and, al- 
though I understood what 
they were saying to me, I kept 
smiling and said I could only 
speak English." 

Fortunately for them, the 
border officials were more 
interested in Mr O'Brien's 
passport and they wanted to 
know what a “publican" does. 


Eventually, after paying a 
£100 deposit, the family were 
allowed io cross. 

In Morocco they completed 
another 12-hour journey to 
Casablanca, where they 
boarded a flight to Heathrow. 
Only when the plane touched 
down did Mrs Chigara believe 
that her nightmare had ended 
The adventure cost the family 
more than £2.500, £1,000 of 
which was put up by Mr 
O'Brien. 

Mrs Chigara plans to return 
with her children to Eri- 
niscorthy, County Wexford, 
on Wednesday

Support for a united front on defence 


The Council for Soda! 
Democracy and ihe SDP 
Consultative Assembly - in 
conference at Harrogate, yes- 
terday endorsed the attempts 
of Dr David Owen and other 
party leaders to get an agreed 
defence policy with the Lib- 
erals. 

A slightly amended policy 
committeeuiotion was carried 
welcoming the Alliance Joint 
Commission Report on De- 
fence and Disarmament as an 
important contribution to the 
policy which the Alliance 
would present to the electorate 
in the next general election. 

The need for the two parties 
to get their aci together was 
strongly put by Mr John 
Cartwright, SDP MP for 
Woolwich, who said that 
everyone yearned for an 
agreed Alliance position on 
defence. 

This was particularly the 
case on the difficult issue of 
Polaris replacement, but any 
agreed policy must be based 
on genuine agreement and not 
on some cynical compromise, 
however ingeniously worded. 
The two parties had gone a 
long way towards achieving 
that agreement. 

There was applause when he 
said he would not relish going 
into- an- election campaign 


The appalling moral implica- 
tions of nuclear weapons im- 
posed a duty to decrease the 
nuclear arsenal progressively, 
step by step. Progress could 
not be achieved by omitting 
any of the steps 

The debate had excited go 
much attention within the 
party, they all wanted the 
culmination of the process to 
be the emergence of the most 
cohesive, most consistent and 
most considered defence pol- 
icy any party bidding for 
government would put on 
offer to the country at the -next 
election. 

They should not be defen- 
sive. Agreements across the 
Alliance were many and pro- 
found. They believed in a full 
role in Nato. in strengthening 
conventional defence, in 
cancelling Trident, and that 
Polaris should be included m 
negotiations. There was a 
catalogue of agreed and 
sustainable Alliance defence' 
policy which could be pre- 
sented to the public. 

The Government had for- 
feited any remaining claim to 
understand ihe nature of the 
special relationship with

became the cheaper option.

she allowed the United States

compounded the folly by

able; Mrs Thatcher had made

In the present situation it 
was no wonder that the Alli- 
ance was now seeking a more, 
enlightened self interest in a 
European context with the 
defence posture in Nato. That 
must come not simply because 
of developments in the 
present American administra- 
tion but because of the fact 
that they could not forever 
rely on an American presence 
in Europe and the American 
nuclear guarantee.

Flexibility to 
avoid impasse 

If they simply reaffirmed 
their policy of a year ago, as 
the sought to do, they would 
be heading for serious trouble. 
In any event it would be an 
open invitation to the Liberals 
to seek to reaffirm all their 
previous policies and what a 
tragedy that would be when 
the joint commission under- 
lined how dose they bad 
moved together. 

“The last thing we want is 
the two Alliance partners 
returning to the trenches, 
which would end up like the 
two armies on the Somme 
fighting pointlessly over bar- 
ren ground," he said. The 
electorate would be turned 
away from this mutual suicide 


that America was serious 
about Star Wars. 

Mr John Bancroft (Edin- 
burgh). moving a motion 
endorsing the policies in the 
report of the joint 
SDP/liberaJ commission on 
defence and disarmament, 
said that it was an acceptable 
compromise on policy and an 
improvement on previous 
policy statements. It reduced 
uncertainty and the scope for 
varied interpretations. 

The joint commission had 
put greater emphasis on 
disarmament and the pursuit 
of common security. There 
was an implicit commitment 
to no first use of nudear 
weapons. 


Mr Alan Heron (Glasgow 
North), moving an amend- 
ment to delete the reference to 
endorsement of policies and 
instead welcomed certain 
commitments within the re- 
port, said the SDP needed to 
campaign on the basis that it 
was committed to nudear 
disarmament. Their commit- 
ment to sound defence was. 
overshadowing their commit- 
ment to nuclear disarmament. 

Mr Brace Dougfas-Msnn. 
parliamentary candidate for 
Mitcham and Mortien, said it 
wasa delusion to imagine that 
the two parties could have 
separate policies on any major 
issue. He moved a motion 
which considered it imper- 


ative that the Liberals and the 
SDP had a united and respon- 
sible policy for defence and 
disarmament for the election 
and for government 
The motion welcomed the 
joint commission report and 
the further initiatives of the

A strong plea for an agreed

was made by Mr John Cart-

who said that they were not 
seeking reaffirmation of every

It was obvious- that they 
should not regard every de-

They saw the Stevenage

on that basis it should be

Poll shows 
small 
majority 
for ban 

Dr David Owen, the SDP 
leader, has only the slimmest 
of majorities within his party 
against Britain doing away 
with nudear weapons, a new 
opinion poll disclosed yes- 
terday. . . . 

The survey, conducted by 
Gallup for the Campaign for 
Nuclear Disarmament, shows 
that 40 per cent of SDP voters 
believe Britain should get nd 
of nuclear weapons “whatever 
other countries do, while 52 
per cent are against. 

Among Liberal supporter. 
55 per cent support Britain 
divesting itself of nuclear 
arms, while 39 per cent dis- 
agree. Within the Alliance as a 
whole 46 per cedi want 
nuclear disarmament irrespec- 
tive of other countries' ac- 
tions. while 47 per cent 
disagree. Seven per cent don't 
know. . . . . 

The poll, which coincided 
yesterday at Harrogate with 
the national launch of a CND 
campaign against Britain's 
bomb, shows that among all 
voters there is an almost even 
split on unilateral nudear 
disaramament with 46 per 
cent in favour and 44 pear cent 
against 

Dr Owen and Mr David 
Steel will take little comfort 
from the response by the 
majority of the 945 people 1 
questioned by Gallup on a i 
possible European nuclear i 
deterrent. 73 per cent of 
Liberals and 69 per cent of 
Social Democrats are opposed 
to a Euro nudear bomb, 
jointly controlled by Britain, 
France and West Germany. 

While Dr Owen made dear 
at the weekend that a Euro- 
pean minimum deterrent 
could not entail shared com- 
mand and control by the 
countries involved, the poll 
findings were seized upon by 
CND leaders, who claimed 
Alliance leaders were out of 
touch with their own 
supporters' views. 

Mr Paul Johns, chairman of 
CND, said yesterday:“If the 
Alliance leaders are offering a 
European nuclear deterrent as 
a middle road and option for 
those who don't like the 
Conservative or Labour par-

The debate on Affiance 
defence policy yesterday 
passed off much wore 
smoothly than might hare 

been expected after the Storms 

a few months ago. David Owe# 
did not denounce the report 
from the joint SDP-Liberal 

Commission for Hs ftabfey 
equivocation over a replace- 
ment for Polaris. But neither 
was his freedom of manoeuvre 
restricted for the further nego- 
tiations that lie ahead with the 
Liberals. , 

Hie signal flashed t o him 
from his party was green 
tinged with amber. He is free 
to coatuwe insisting that there 
most be a successor to Polaris. 
He has not been told to 
compromise on essentials, hot 
it has been indic at ed that he 

should not be unnecessarily 
provocative towards his crit- 
ics, especially in the Liberal 
Party. 

The whole tone of the 
defence debate within the Affi- 
ance has been transformed by 
introducing a new phrase into 
the discourse of Social Demo- 
crats and Liberals. No longer 
is It acceptable in polite Alli- 
ance society to speak of a 
British national deterrent. It u 
a ■wiwiwinm European deter- 
rent that is now undo* 
discussion. 

Euro deterrent 
brilliant device 

Asa political device this is 
brilliant. It gives the im- 
pression to those who were 
against the replacement of 
Polaris because they were 
revoked by the very idea of a 
British deterrent that some- 
thing quite different is now 
being considered. 

The impression is also being 
conveyed that the concept of a 
European deterrent is a major 
and constructive exercise in 
parti finding -, which it would be 
smaU-muHied to reject. 

The two. Davids and their 
colleagues were received with 
elaborate attention on their 
recent visit to Paris, and a 
spokesman for the French 
Socialists spoke at a fringe 
meeting in Harrogate on Sat- 
urday evening.

tions. Will the trick work with

ment in South Africa once 
sanctions had inevitably 
failed, Mr Laurence Cock- 
croft. prospective Par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Halifax, said in a debate on 
international co-operation. 

“We are now on a coum- 
down lo a major confronta- 
tion between the African 
National Congress and the 
force of the South African 
government.*' he said. 

He asked if the United 
Kingdom and EEC were going 
to stand by while the ANC was 
supplied with arms from the 
Eastern bloc and the South 
African government could 
brand them as Communists. 

“Are we prepared to follow 
the logic of what 1 believe will 
be the failure of sanctions and 
consider the supply of arms to 
the guerilla movement? I be- 
lieve we should." he said. 

This should be linked to an

Indians and anyone else who 
wished to leave South Africa. 

Mr David Marquand. reply- 


ing to the debate for the policy 
committee, said that the SDP 
stood for practical, real 
internationalism. 

The only answer was to 
work within an increasingly 
supra-national European 
community to which real de- 
cision-making power was 
transferred by member states. 
This was the place where 
Britain could best hope to 
exert an influence for good on 
the rest of the world. 

• All too often the path to

candidate for Dover, said 
during the same debate in a 
protest at “blind” cuts in the 
Civil Service. 

In Dover there were mas- 
sive quantities of freight entei-

The trick has certainly 
worked with David Steel, but 
tot may be simply because he 
wants it to work. His concern 
is above all to find a basis for 
agreement with to SDP, so 
that the Alliance can fight the 
election on a united program. 

The c om ments from the 
Liberal representatives who 
have been at Harrogate over 
the weekend have created a 
much less favourable im- 
pression with the Social 
Democratic leadership. There, 
will be difficulties between the 
two parties if the Liberals are 
prepared to contemplate a 
European deterrent only later 
on if hopes of an arms control 
settlement are frustrated. 

Bat what would a minimum 
European deterrent actually 
involve? It would certainly not 
mean joint operational control

Feasibility of 
joint projects 

There might be agreement 
on joint targeting and on the 
co-ordination of submarine 
missions. IT the tinting of refits 
for each country's submarines 
could be synchronized, then 
both Britain and France might 
possibly be able to dispense 
with a submarine or so. 

Rather more ambitiously 
Britain might be persuaded to

yet knows whether tot would 
be feasible or what the costs 
would be. 

At this stage, therefore, a

Air defence: 1 

£lbit shakeup for 
ground radar 

In the first of two articles, Rodney Cowton, Defence 
Correspondent, looks at the £1 billion programme to 
modernize air defence radars and other systems, 
aimed at ensuring that, despite great advances in 
Soviet aircraft, they will continue to be able to intrude 
into Britain T s air defence area only at their perii 


Britain’s air defences are 
undergoing their most com- 
irehensive modernization 
ince the Second World War, 
>1 a cost of at least £SbiIlion. 
mb Virtually every aspen 
anging from aircrfift- to 
omm unications systems be- 


Much of that work has 
rceived a good deal of public 
ttention. most notably in the 
ase of tortured efforts to 
ring into use a new Airborne 
iariy Warning (AEW) aircraft, 
nd in the programme to 
cquire 165 Tornado aircraft 
i the air defence version. 

But one aspect, that of 
todemizing the ground- 
ased radars and communica- 
ons and control equipment, 
ritich are the cement of the 
'hole system, has received 
datively little attention, even 
lough it is going to cost about 
1 billion. 

The programme is known 
ither clumsily as the Im- 
roved United Kingdom Air 
defence Ground ■ Environ- 
leni (IUKADGE). 

The United Kingdom Air 
tafence Region is a vast area, 
■hich extends from Iceland 
nd Norway in the north far 
ut into the Western Ap- 
roaches. 

It is important not only 
ecause in war it would de- 
:nd Britain and the convoys 
pproaching these islands 
om air attack, but also 
ecause it would have to guard 
gainst attacks coming from 
oviet bases in the Arctic 
hich could outflank the Nato 


air defences in central Europe. 

The need for a radical 
improvement of the system 
was recognized in the 1970s. 

The -development of new 
weapons- systems, and above 
all of new forms of electronic 
warfare, meant that to be 
effective in the 1990s and 
onwards, radars and com : 
mand, control and commu- 
nications systems would have 
to be much more resistant to 
jamming and other forms of 
electronic attack and much 
less easy for enemy attackers 
to locate. 

Because of the speed . of 
modem weapon systems, and 
particularly of long-range mis- 
siles, IUKADGE would also 
have to be able to react 
virtually instantly to a threat, 
with information being con- 
veyed throughout the entire 
System within seconds. 

That demanded the use of 
computer capacity on a huge 
scale. But it also required a 
completely secure ground- 
based communications sys- 
tem, which could survive in 
war conditions. 

That is being provided by 
the Uniter system. 

Thirteen modern radars are 
being installed, and the RAF 
expects to have received about 
half of them before the end of 
this year. 

The radars will be mobile, 
being capable of moving rap- 
idly between locations, both 
on and off roads, and will be 
protected by decoys

Plea to keep castles open in winter 


The British Tourist Author-

castles to stay open all winter 
in an attempt to increase off- 
peak holiday bookings. . 

The authority’s director of 
marketing/Mr Alan Jefferson, 
is campaigning for the trade to 
beat the winter shutdown. 

The campaign comes after a 


meeting in London at which 
tour operators said there was a 
customer demand for travel 
during the winter months but 
too few attractions were open. . 

Two royal anniversaries are

Mary's 1 death. The Scottish 
campaign will be launched on 
February 8, the anniversary of 
her execution: 


with just two weeks to go 
before the crown prosecution 
service is operational through- 
| out the -country, London still 
faces a severe shortage of 
lawyers who are taking over 
responsibility for prosecutions 
from the police. 

In London the old metro- 
politan police prosecuting 
solicitors' department had 
about eighty lawyers who did 
only the most serious prosecu- 
tions or those of particular 
sensitivity. But under the new 
service the whole of London 
will need about 300 lawyers. 

The shortage has meant a 
heavy reliance on freelance 
lawyers from the outside pro- 
fession. 

Apart from the sheer num- 
ber of those needed, one 
reason for the shortage is 
thought to be the salary. The 
crown prosecutor comes in on 
a salary scale of £11,140 to 
£14.840. plus London 
weighting. Prosecutors from 
outside London are unwilling 
to move into the capital on 
that pay. 

London is estimated to 
have recruited at best two- 
thirds of the number it needs 
in some areas, and little more 
than half in others. 

The capital had a bigger job 
than the rest of the country 
because until now the police 
have done most routine 
prosecutions in court. Else- 


where, there were prosecuting 
solicitors' departments that 
have formed the core of the 
new service and its network of 
salaried lawyers. 

The final pieces of the 
London jigsaw fall into place 
on Wednesday when Camber- 
well Green, Wells Street Lam- 
beth and South Western 
magistrates' courts go over to 
the new service, ready for 
October I. 

The service started on April 
i in the six metropolitan areas 
outside London and on Octo- 
ber 1 starts in the shires and in 
London, where it has been 
coming into force on a rolling 
basis. 

As everywhere else in the 
country, there have been com- 
plaints of lost papers and 
wrong cases going to the 
wrong courts, with general 
chaos and confusion. 

Mr Anthony Edwards, an 
east London defence solicitor 
doing freelance work for the 
service, says: “l have not yet 
done a case where I have not 
had to chase a set of papers". 

But the problems arise 
mainly because of the system's 
newness. Now all cases, except 
for a few such as those 
involving national security, go 
to the crown prosecution ser- 
vice, which for the first lime 
provides an independent re- 
view of whether a case should 
be brought to court. 


The change has been a 
shock for the police, the 
courts, and magistrates. In- 
stead of a police officer stand- 
ing up in court and presenting 
a a crown prosecution 
service lawyer now appears 
and lakes the whole list for the 
mornm& 

Bow Street, where a pitot 
service started a year ago, 
highlights the problems else- 
where. 

The lawyers also need more 
lime to review the files than 
the police did. That is not just 
inexperience, according to Mr 
Richard Da we, senior crown 
prosecuior at Bow Street. 

He said: “The police will 
usually have seen the case 
through from the complaint 
into court. They know iu We 
are always starting cold.” 

Even with experience, the 
job of applying the Attorney 
General's guidelines on what 
cases should be prosecuted 
means that the process will 
take longer. But that should be 
more than balanced by throw- 
ing out poor cases that will not 
then work their way through 
the court system. 

In Bow Street, things are 
settling down. A new breed or 
lawyer, skilled in reviewing all 
kinds of criminal case, is 
emerging and the prosecution 
service, Mr Da we says, is 
“becoming a way of life for 
those of us in it”.

Terror preview to Asian Gaines 

North Korea suspect after five 
killed in Seoul airport blast 


Seoul (Reuter) — A bomb 
blast in the crowded arrival 
hall of Seoul's Kimpo Airport 
yesterday killed five people 
and wounded 26, police said. 

The incident increased fears 
that terrorists would try to 
sabotage the Asian Games 
starting next Saturday, and 
police say (hey are investi- 
gating whether North Korea 
was involved in the attack. 

A police spokesman said 
that no foreigners or athletes 
were hurt in the explosion, 
which was caused by a bomb 
planted in a rubbish bin near a 
terminal gate. The airport was 
busy at the weekend with 
sportsmen and officials from 
28 nations flying in for the 
Games. 

A Japanese Foreign Min- 
istry official, quoting reports 
from Tokyo's Embassy in 
Seoul, said that the bomb was 
believed to have been det- 
onated electronically. Wit- 
nesses said they saw three 
people blown through massive 
plate-glass windows by the 
force of the explosion. 

Within minutes a large force 
of special anti-terrorist troops 
had cordoned off the inter- 
national terminal. No arrests 


were reported. A police inves- 
tigation team is trying to find 
out whether the bomb was 
planted by North Korean 
agents or by groups backed by 
Pyongyang, the spokesman 
said.

Student radicals accuse

use the Games, and the Olym-

here in 1988, as a way of 
boosting his government's im- 
age. Billions of dollars spent 
ou the two events would be 
better used in helping poor 
workers and farmers, they say. 

The Government says that 
the vast majority of South

Peres wants US backing for 
Middle East peace talks 


From David Bernstein, Jerusalem 


Mr Shimon Peres, the Is- 
raeli Prime Minister, left for 
Washington yesterday for 
talks with President Reagan in 
which he is expected to give a 
further push to the Middle 
East peace process after his 
summit meeting in Egypt last 
week. 

He is expected to try to 
obtain US backing for a peace 
conference to which he and 
President Mubarak of Egypt 
agreed in principle. 

Mr Peres may also meet Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the So- 
viet Foreign Minister, with a 
view to sounding out Mos- 
cow's position on such a 
conference. 

The Israeli Ambassador in 
Washington met his Soviet 
counterpart, Mr Yuri Dub- 
inin, at the end of last week, 
giving rise to speculation that 
such a meeting may be in the 
offing. 

Speaking before he left yes- 
terday. Mr Peres would not 
confirm whether he will meet 
Mr Shevardnadze. But he did 
say that Israel would have no 
objection if the Soviet Union 
took part in a peace con- 
ference, provided that it 
agreed to re-establish dip- 
lomatic relations. 

He indicated, however, that 
he was not optimistic, in 
which case a way would have 
to be found for a peace 
conference “without reject- 
ionists". 

Mr Peres dismissed reports 
that Washington was not 
enthusiastic about a peace 
conference that would bring 
Moscow back into Middle 
East peacemaking, an almost 


exclusive American preserve 
for almost a decade. He said 
that both President Reagan 
and Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, agreed fully 
that such a conference might 
be a necessary accompani- 
ment to any direct negotia- 
tion. 

He was equally dismissive 
of opposition to an inter- 
national conference from his 
Likud coalition partners, who 
made plain at yesterday's 
Cabinet meeting that they 
remain opposed. 

With less than a month to 
go before Mr Peres hands over 

Two members of an alleged 
terrorist ring were murdered in 
Nablus prison by a third gang 
member on Saturday because 
they were co-operating with 
the Israelis, according to Is- 
rael radio (David Bernstein 
reports from Jerusalem). 

the premiership to Mr Yitzhak 
Shamir. Likud has been care- 

• ful not to generate a crisis over 
the conference idea. 

Mr Peres conceded yes- 
terday that he did not expect 
immediate results. 

Also on his agenda will be 
talks on moving Israel's now 
stable but stagnant economy 
towards renewed growth. Mr 
Peres made clear that he 
would not seek further eco- 
nomic aid, but would be 
exploring ways of generating 
US investment in Israel. 

• Woman shot: A Palestinian 
woman was shot dead yes- 
terday morning while appar- 


ently trying to slit the throat of 

an Israeli soldier in the West 
Bank town of Hebron. 

The soldier, who was guard- 
ing the Cave of the Patriarchs 
in Hebron, was surprised by 
the woman, who attacked him 
from behind, stabbed him and 
then tried to slit his throat. 

A fellow soldier fired a 
warning shot into the air, 
according to eyewitness re- 
ports from Hebron, before 
firing two shots at the woman 
and killing ber. 

The wounded soldier is said 
to be in satisfactory condition. 
Israel imposed a curfew on the 
Casbah in Hebron. 

• Embassy planned: Ivory 
Coast plans to open an em- 
bassy in Jerusalem today in a 
diplomatic victory for Israel, 
which has long sought to 
bolster its disputed claims to 
the holy dty, Israeli officials 
said (Reuter reports), 
nly i 

Salvador have maintained 
embassies in Jerusalem since 
Israel passed a law in 1980 
declaring the dty, induding 
the eastern sector captured 
from Jordan in the 1967 war, 
its undivided capital. 

Other countries with em- 
bassies in Jerusalem moved 
them to Tel Aviv in protest at 
the declaration. 

Ivory Coast renewed rela- 
tions 10 months ago with 
Israel which it and most other 
black African nations severed

Amal seize 
Unifil blast 
suspects 

Beirut (AP) — The Shia 
Muslim Amal militia has ar- 
rested two men suspected of 
detonating a bomb itiiimi 
a French soldier in the UN 
Interim Force (Unifil) in Leba- 
non and wounded three others, 
according to reports yesterday 
• 

Newspapers quoted an Am- 
al official in Bafliye, the 
Tillage where the am bosh 
occurred, as saying Amal be- 
lieved the suspects played a 
principal role in the attack. 

They quoted die official as 
saying the two men were 
seized by Amal uriUtMuneri on 
a hilltop overlooking the spot 
where the remote-control 
bomb, containing an estimated 
65 lb of explosives, was det- 
onated on Saturday as a 
French Unifil patrol passed. 

The Amal official was 
quoted as saying militiamen 
discovered two other explosive 
charges near the ambush site. 
One was a 120 mm artillery 
shell linked to an 'electrical 
wire in a ditch near the bomb 
scene; the other a warhead 
from a Soviet-made Grad 
rocket covered with hay. 

The fighting between the 
nine-nation Unifil and Shia 
tactions loyal to Iran has 
raised concern about the 
5,800-member force sent into 
south Lebanon in 1978 to 
supervise die withdrawal of 
Israeli forces, who had thrust

Baghdad envoy dies in 
car bomb explosion 

From A Correspondent, Karachi 


An Iraqi consular official, 
Mr Nabathal Abdul Salam 
Abdul LatiE, was killed and 
another man hurt when a 
bomb exploded in his car 
yesterday morning. 

Police said a device planted 
in the car killed the diplomat 
instantly and injured his un- 
identified passenger. The dip- 
lomat was on his way to the 
consulate when his car ex- 
ploded near a commercial area 
in Clifton, an upper-class area. 

A strict security cordon has 
been thrown round the Iraqi 
consulate and armed guards 
posted at other Iraqi offices 
and businesses. Officials at 
the Iraqi consulate have de- 
clined to comment. 


Police said they had re- 
ceived no claims of respons- 
ibility for the killing. 

Mr Salman Taraiki. who 
was arrested on Wednesday at 
the Islamabad airport for bis 
alleged involvement in last 
week's Pam Am jet hijacking 
has been remanded in police 
custody for 14 days. 

Taraiki travelled to Islam- 
abad on a Libyan passport bat 
the Libyan Embassy has 
claimed the passport was 
forged and that be was not a 

Libyan national. 

Some police sources say Mr 
Taraiki masterminded the 
hijacking, which culminated in 
23 people being killed and 
more than 100 badly injured.

From Charles Knevrtt, Architecture Correspondent, Gibraltar 


The Gibraltar Government 
has admitted to a “technical 
illegality" in issuing a permit 
to demolish the Old Com- 
mand Education Centre in the 
Old Town district of the Rock 
so that a £4.5 million develop- 
ment can go ahead. 

The six-storey Cornwall’s 
Centre development by Tay- 
lor Woodrow of Gibraltar Ltd 
has been described as a poten- 
tial “Covent Garden of the 
Mediterranean’'. 

It is the biggest single 
redevelopment opportunity in 
the centre of Gibraltar and 
will- indude offices, flats, 
shops, restaurants and car* 
parking. 

Demolition work is con- 
tinuing in defiance of a Su- 
preme Court ruling by Mr 
Justice Alcantara on Septem- 
ber I that the demolition 
order, issued by the Develop- 
ment and Planning Commis- 
sion in July, was contrary to 
the Gibraltar dty plan and 
therefore not in conformity 
with the town planning 
ordinance. 

The action against the Gov- 
ernment was taken by Mr 
Lionel Culatto, a banister, 
and Mr John Langdon, an 
architect, individually and as 
chairman and deputy chair- 
man of the Gibraltar Con- 
servation Society. 

The senior Crown Counsel, 
the Attorney-General's dep- 
uty, has lodged an appeal 
against the judge's decision. 


although this has not yet been 
published in full. The com- 
mission derided 10 days ago 
to allow demolition work to 
continue. 

The appal is unlikely to be 
heard until next spring, by 
which time conservationists 
fear the old building will have 
been demolished and the 
redevelopment started. Law- 
yers claim the Government is 
acting in contempt of court. 

Mr Adolfo Canepa, Deputy 
Chief Minister and chairman 
of the commission, said: “The 
Attorney-General does not 
agree with the judge that the 
permit is not legal 

But he admitted that “tech- 
nically we are in breach of the 
law". He justified the decision 
to allow demolition to proceed 
as a matter of public safety 

Last Thursday the daily 
Gibraltar Chronicle published 
a letter from six local bar- 
risters expressing concern at 
the “apparent disregard" by 
the commission of the judge's 
ruling. 

The Old Command Educa- 
tion Centre, formerly the 
officers’ mess of the Royal 
Engineers, has been in dis- 
repair for some years. 

In a report called Save 
Gibraltar's Heritage , pub- 
lished in 1982, it was given the 
highest priority for preserva- 
tion. This confirmed the view 
of the city plan, published in 
1976, that it should be 
restored. 


Taylor Woodrow of Gibral- 
tar Ltd bought the building by 
government tender last au- 
tumn for £462.000 for re- 
development Two reports, by 
the developers’ structural en- 
gineers and by the Gibraltar 
Public Works Department, 
called for its demolition. 

However, a report by an 
independent consulting en- 
gineer from London, Mr Brian 
Morton, commissioned tty the 
Gibraltar Conservation So 
ety last month, challenged the 
recommendations of the two 
other reports and stated that 
there was no danger of struc- 
tural collapse and the building 
could be restored . 

The Government's tender 
documents, issued in Septem- 
ber 1985, stated that the main 
part of the old building should 
be retained and incorporated 
in a new development 

However, in the Supreme 
Court hearing the Govern- 
ment maintained the develop- 
ment brief was “a basis for 
guidance only". 

Mr Canepa said the new 
development would make “an 
important contribution to the 
local economy. The whole of 
Gibraltar cannot be a mus- 
eum" But he added that if the 
appeal went against the 
commission, “we'll change foe 
law if we have to". 

Mr David Maddams, Tay- 
lor Woodrow's director in 
Gibraltar, was not available 
for comment

Mrs Reagan in drugs fight warning 


Washington — Mrs Nancy 
Reagan yesterday said she op- 
posed unlimited use of mili- 
tary forces to try to curb drugs 
in the United States. But sbe 
said the whole nation had to 
fight drugs and just throwing 
money at foe problem was not 
going to solve it (Michael Bin- 


yon writes). 

Mrs Reagan was interview- 
ed on television yesterday 

Asked about foe recent 
House of Representatives Bill 
calling for the use of foe armed 
forces in stopping foe inflow 
of drugs, she said some ele- 
ments, such as the Coast 


Guard, were already involved. 
But there was a danger in 
using foe military as police- 
men to make arrests. 

Mrs Reagan sidestepped di- 
rect comment on the Bill's 
provision for a nationally- 
approved death penalty for 
murders involving drugs.

Washington View 


Russia outsmarts Reagan on Daniloff 


he release of Mr Nicholas 
liloff. though welcome to 

friends and colleagues, 

■ rebound damagingly on 
Reagan .Administration. 
Iready questions are being 
id here and accusations of 
itiiude being bandied 
lit in Congress and among 
press. For few doubt that 
Russians have won a 
tble victory. 

$ one official said: “We 

; eyeball-to-eyeball with 

Russians, and we 
bed." 

r George Shultz, the Sec- 
ry of State, was unusally ill 
ase when he announced 
l he said was an interim 
ngement to spare Mr 
itoff the anguish of 
inued detention in a Mos- 
prison. 

i argued that there was no 
valence with the Zakh- 
case. The Russian would 
have to stand trial for 
mage. 

t the more vehemently he 
ted there would not be a 
. the dearer it became 
this was exactly what foe 


Administration has been ob- 
liged to accept. The US really 
had little other choice. 

The KGB. terrified at what 
US interrogators might learn 
from Mr Gennady Zakharov 
ofSoviei spy operations in the 
US. used the arrest of a 
presumably innocent reporter 
to put pressure on Wash- 
ington. And given the confu- 
sion in foe Administration, it 
paid off. 

At first the US proposed a 
swap. But with the growing 
public furore, and under pres- 
sure from the right to stand 
firm in the face of Soviet 
blackmail, the Administration 
withdrew the offer and an- 
nounced a measured escala- 
tion. 

In foe end, however, it was 
unable to let its anger run the 
full course, for fear of wreck- 
ing foe new round of arms 
control talks, which begin on 
Wednesday, and the Shultz 
meetings with Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, foe Soviet For- 
eign Minister, starting on 
Thursday. 

Both President Reagan and 


Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, foe 
Soviet leader, saw foe dangers 
of the imbroglio, and wrote to 
each other urging a speedy 
solution. But by accepting the 
Soviet argument that the two 
men should be treated the 
same, foe Administration now 
faces accusations here foal it 
has sold ouL 

.As one conservative asked: 
“Can you imagine what we 

By Michael Binyon 

would be doing if Jimmy 
Carter had done this?" 

It is clear that crucial mis- 
takes were made after Mr 
Zakharov's arrest First, the 
Federal Bureau of Investiga- 
tion boasted how. in effect it 
had set him up. even supply- 
ing foe Guyanese contact with 
the secret documents to hand 
over when FBI agents were 
lying in wait This wa^ a 
humiliation that foe KGB and 
Mr Gorbachov were unlikely 
to lake lying down. 

Secondly, foe FBI acted 
independently of foe State 
Department on an issue’ 


bound to affect Soviet-US 
relations in the run-up to the 
summit Unlike previous Rus- 
sians without diplomatic 
immunity, Mr Zakharov was 
refused bail and Mr Shultz 
was not consulted. 

Presumably the FBL still 
smarting at us failure to stop 
an American spy and a Soviet 
defectorgetting away last year, 
was determined, as the Senate 
intelligence committee re- 
marked, to show that foe US 
“is on top of this spy thing". 

Finally, the intervention by 
President Reagan and the 
threat of a general escalation 
turned the affair into a per- 
sonal challenge to Mr Gor- 
bachov, making it harder for 
Moscow to back down. 

Washington is convinced a 
similar row must be going on 
in Moscow, especially over the 
clumsiness of foe powerful 
KGB in getting its revenge 
without reference to the for- 
eign policy consequences. 

How do foe two sides now 
get out of foe crisis? A retreat 
has to save face on both sides. 

An example from 1978 may 


be foe answer. When two 
Soviet United Nations em- 
ployees were then arrested as. 
spies, Moscow similarly 
seized a US businessman. 

Eventually he was let out of 
prison, tried, found guilty of 
currency smuggling, and im- 
mediately expelled from foe 
Soviet Union. The two Rus- 
sians still had to stand trial, 
and were given 50-year prison 
sentences. But only five 
months later they were 
swapped for important Soviet 
dissidents jailed in Russia. 

Something similar may now 
be in foe works. Mr Daniloff 
may be tried and then im- 
mediately expelled — perhaps 
in a month's time as a pre- 
summit gesture. And Mr 
Zakharov, if convicted, could ' - 
be later swapped for other 
dissidents still in Soviet la- 
bour camps. 

The affair is bound to doud 
relations. It will add a bitter- 
ness to foe Shultz-Shevard- 
nadze talks. It win make it 
harder for Mr Gorbachov, if 
he comes here in November, 
to ma k e a good impression.

OVERSEAS NEWS 


Day of reckoning arrives for EEC 

•uth 

but UK 
seeks unanimous stand 




.. European Community for- 
eign ministers, under the 
chairmanship of Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, finally face the derison 
today- over, sanctions a gainst 
South Africa which was put off 
at the EEC summit three 
^months ago, and are likely to 
go ahead with limited mea- 
sures. “This is die day of 
reckoning,'* one diplomat 
.said. 

A move toward sanctions 
after months of reluctance was 
foreshadowed at an informal 
foreign ministers' meeting in 
Britain a week a go . 

Britain, which currently 
-holds the presidency of the 
Coun cil of Ministers, will 
refrain from blocking sanc- 
tions, provided the other 11 
EEC states are all in favour. 

The three measures envis- 
.aged at The Hague are a ban 
roo South African coal, iron 
and steel, a ban on gold coins, 
and a bait to new inves tm e n ts 
in South Africa. Britain is 
insisting on a unanimous 
decision, but much still de- 
pends on the attitude of West 
"Germany and Portugal, which 
have important links with 
South Africa. 

' Countries such as The 
"Netherlands, Ireland and 
* Denmark are pushing lor de- 
cisive action against Pretoria 
on the ground that Europe's 
political credibility is at stake. 

Sir Geoffrey will report to 
-the meeting on his talks in 
.Washington last week, when 
be said that he remained 
.sceptical of the value of 
sanctions. 

Diplomats said implemen- 
tation of the Hague measures 
seemed inevitable, but the 
.EEC still had delaying devices 
at its disposal, including the 
argument that any European 


From Richard Owen, Brussels 

measures should be co- 
ordinated with America and 
Japan. ■ 

‘ The Hague summit in June 
sent Sir Geoffrey to southern 
Africa in a final attempt to 
persuade Pretoria to release 
political prisoners and begin 
dismantling apartheid, but 
warned that limited sanctions 
would follow if the.. EEC 
judged that his mission had 
foiled. Today's meeting is 
most likely to conclude that 
the mission did fail. 

Imports of South African 
coaL iron, steel and gold coins 
into Europe amount to a little 
over £1 billion a year, or one- 
sixth of total South African 
exports to the EEC. The ban 
on new investment would 
have most impact on Britain, 
where Investments amount to 
an estimated £6 trillion. 

On the other hand, invest- 
ments have been felling, arid 
Britain already operates a ban 
on new investment as well as a 
ban on gold coins. 

Sir Geoffrey is expected to 
argue that; although he felled 
to persuade President Botha 
to make “any significant shift” 
over apartheid, diplomatic 
contacts with Pretoria have 
not been exhausted 
He wifi also join the Dutch 
in urging the EEC to take 
positive as well as negative 
measures by increasing aid to 
critics of apartheid in South 
Africa, including black trade 
unionists. The 1987 EEC bud- 
get. presented to the European 
Parliament last week, sets 
aside £10 million for positive 
aid 

According to British sour- 
ces. complications arise over 
co-ordination with Wash- 
ington because of differences 
between Congress and the 


Pretoria accused 
in lesbian spy case 

From Ray Kennedy, Johannesburg 


A woman claims a South 
African security agent who 
approached her to spy at the 
Australian Embassy in Pre- 
toria threatened to expose her 
as a lesbian if she did not ajpee 
to pass on information, it'was 
reported here yesterday. 

Miss Vanessa Twine, aged 
23. a South African citizen 
who worked as a receptionist 
in the visa section, instead 
informed officials. 

She was reported in the 
Johannesburg Sunday Tima 
yesterday as saying: “I offered 
to resign bat they would not 
accept iL 

- “I was told that what I did 
with my private life was my 
own affair and that they were 
very satisfied with my work. 

M I did not mention I was a 
lesbian when I joined the 
embassy in July because I did 
not think there was any need 
for them to know.” 

Diplomatic sources ex- 
pressed surprise yesterday 
that more extensive inquiries 
had not been made into her 
background before she was 
employed in a relatively sen- 
sitive post. 

Apart from working as a 
receptionist, she also handled 
all Pretoria applications for 
visas to emigrate to or visit 
Australia. 

An embassy spokesman 
confirmed she had reported 
the approaches and that the 
Ambassador, Mr Bob Birch, 
had lodged an official protest 
with the Sooth African 
Department of Foreign Affaire 
on Thursday. 

The police have confirmed 


that the CTD is investigating. 
On Saturday Miss Twine was 
questioned for 90 minutes at 
Pretoria police headquarters. 

She says she was not shown 
photographs to help her 
identify the man who ap- 
proached her, who gave his 
name as Nick Pieterseo- 

“I am prepared to 
through all the security offices 
to identify Nick Pietersen,” 
she said. 

She said the police asked 
why she did not ask Pietersen 
for identification and why she 
was certain he was connected 
to a security or intelligence 
organization. 

“I had no reason to doubt he 
was from security. He knew so 
much about me, about the 
lesbianism, about my gut- 
friend, Erika. 

“How many people even 
knew I had started work at the 
Australian Embassy?” 

Miss Twine added: “I am 
Still scared ... Not of him as a 
man, but of the power behind 
him.” 

South Africa's relations 
with Australia, which is 
attracting many emigrants 
including highly qualified pro- 
fessionals, are strained over 
the Hawke Government's sup- 
port for sanctions. 

Pretoria sees this as a 
flagrant example of doable 
standards, believing Aus- 
tralia's real interest is to 
capture Far Eastern coal and 
mineral export markets, 
particularly in Japan where 
Mr RF “Pik” Botha, the 
Foreign Minister, had talks 
last week. 


Schools in 
Soweto 
are closed 

Johannesburg (Reuter) — 

Die South African Govern- 
ment said yesterday it had 
:losed 13 more black schools. 
10 of them in Soweto, because 
af student boycotts and class- 
room disruption, after 20 were 
shut last week. 

A statement from _Mr

rommunities. charging that 
hey had squandered and ne- 
glected the opportunity to

ion Crisis Centre has ap- 
jealed to Pretoria to stop 
losures. It said attendance 
vill rise when troops are 
mhdrawn from schools and

Doubt cast 
on Ershad 
poll date 

From Ahmed FazI 
D haka 

The prospect of a presiden- 
tial poll in Bangladesh on 
October 15 has been thrown 
into doubt by a senior min- 
ister. who said at the weekend 
that the poll could be delayed, 
and major opposition parties 
who declared a countrywide 
general strike for voting day. 

President Ershad’s civilian 
Prime Minister. Mr Mizanur 
Rahman Chowdhury, said the 
poll could be postponed to 
encourage two opposition alli- 
ances to end their boycott. 

“I can tell you the polk will 
not be held on October 15 be- 
cause the day marks the first 
anniversary of a national trag- 
edy.” Mr Chowdhury said. 
Thirty-nine students were kill- 
ed when the roof of a Dhaka 
University dormitory caved 
in on October 15 last year. 

• Top adviser named: Presi- 
dent Ershad yesterday named 
a former Air Force chief. Air 
Vice-Marshal Abdul Karim 
Khandker, once High 
Commissioner to Australia 
gncNndia. as his top adviser in 
a move seen as an attempt to 
develop a liaison between 
politicians and the military 
now that President Ershad is 
preparing for a civilian role 
after the election.

; Even if the EEC goes it 
alone over sanctions, diffi- 
culties could still arise over 
whether a trade embargo is the 
prerogative of national gov-

whether embargoes fell within

Bujak hopes he need never hide again 


From Roger Boyes 
Warsaw 

Mr Zbigniew Bujak disap- 
peared. The underground Sol- 
idarity leader, driven in a sec- 
ret police car through the steel 
gates of Rakowiecka prison, 
was taken home to a Warsaw 
suburb, the most prominent 
beneficiary of the Polish 
Government's amnesty. He 
evaporated for six hours. Per- 
haps to see friends still in 
hiding, perhaps not. 

When we tracked him down 
at the weekend he looked fit. 
His speech was more disci- 
plined than before the military 
crackdown in the winter of 


1981. After martial law be was 
in hiding for four and a half 
years and was regarded as 
Poland's most wanted man 
until he was trapped on May 
31 (his year. This was his first 
real talk in freedom. 

His priorities now. “We 
should build a leadership that 
would be able to function in 
the open, without hiding and 
to end the underground stage. 
Hiding, going underground, is 
a very heavy burden for those 
who have to take such a deri- 
sion. So first of all I would like 
to do something fin* my 
friends who still have to hide. 

“Second, 1 would like to do 


something for the union and. 
third. I have very complicated 
family problems. To solve all 
of my family problems wiU re- 
quire a lot of time and work.” 

General Czeslaw Kiszczak, 
the Interior Minister, said on 
Polish television that the se- 
cret police had exposed 281 
different underground cells of 
Solidarity. 

Mr Bujak offered only ten- 
tative advice to those still 
working in the clandestine 
opposition. “If it turns out 
that there is a possibility of the 
opposition working in the 
open, then they will be able to 
leave the underground. If it 


emerges that there is no possi- 
bility for the opposition and 
Solidarity to work in the open 
— if. say. someone goes to jail 
for such activities — then 
others will go underground, 
will start hiding.”

possible his colleagues in

The rescue plan was drawn 
up by Brigadier Tariq 
Mahmood of the Pakistan 
Army's Special Services 
Group, it was reported in The 
Sunday Times yesterday. One 
of the three bullets was recov- 
ered from under the nose of 
the aircraft. 

The official account has 
been that, after lights inside 
the aircraft went out when an 
outside generator failed, the 
hijackers herded the pas- 
sengers into the middle of the 
aircraft and opened fire. 

As well as the four Arabic- 
speaking hijackers in custody. 
Islamabad police later ar- 
rested a Mr Salman Taraiki. 
claimed to be a Libyan official 
born in Tripoli in 1955, on his 
arrival from Karachi 
About 200 Indians were 
among the 400 passengers and 
the Indian Prime Minister. Mr 
Rajiv Gandhi has accused 
Pakistan of a clumsy anti- 
hijack operation.

Headache 
for Vienna 
coalition 

From Richard Bassett 
Vienna 

Austria’s Socialist— Free- 
dom Party coatttion Govern- 
ment was thrown into con- 
fusion yesterday by the sudden 
election of Herr J6ra Haider, 
an extreme -right-wing poli- 
tician, as leader of the Free- 
dom Party. 

Herr Haider, who has been 
bailed in some quarters in 
Austria as “Hitler’s adopted 
son” because of his German 
nationalist views, caused a 
furore two years ago by 
defending the Austrian De- 
fence Minister’s decision to 
greet a convicted Nazi war 
criminal on his repatriation to 
Austria. 

- A gifted orator, based until 
now in his party's stronghold 
of Carinthia, a not pq oosly 
pan-German part of thereto*- - 
try. Herr Aider has pre- 
sented an image of energy and 
decisiveness unusual In con- 
temporary Austrian politics. 

One of the wealthiest men hi 
Austria, Herr Haider's for- 
midable oratory and charisma 
are believed by the Freedom 
Party to be its only chance of 
holding on to power at next 
springs general election. 

His emergence as the party 
leader over the weekend pro- 
voked emotional scenes at the 
party congress in Innsbruck. 
One elder of the party even 
suffered a heart attack asHerr 
Norbert Steger, the oatgoing 
leader, was booed and hissed 
by Haider supporters, who 
have always portrayed Herr 
Steger as a buffoon. 

However, several moderate 
members of the Freedom 
Part)- voiced their fears that 
Herr Haider's ejection will 
provoke the Socialist s into * 
general election this autumn in 
an attempt to capitalize on the 
Freedom Party’s confusion.

parts of northern Uganda 
(Charles Harrison writes).

communism. 

While peace talks with the 
communists have stalled after 
two formal meetings in the 
past five weeks, Mrs Aquino 
will be able to .make political 
capital out of a ceasefire 
agreement signed at the week- 
end with the renegade Roman 
Catholic priest. Father 
Coorado Balweg, whose 300- 
member guerrilla army is 
fighting for greater autonomy 
for tribal groups m the north- 
ern Philippines. 


Mrs Aquino also succeeded, 
one week earlier, in convinc- 
ing the Muslim rebel leader, 
Mr Nut Misuari, to begin 
peace talks towards ending toe 
14-year Muslim rebellion in 
the southern Philippines. 

Both peace initiatives have 
boosted her support within the 
armed forces' High Command 
and won an important pledge 
of loyalty last Tuesday from 
the country's 69 generals. 

The next day Mrs Aquino 
doubled to 1 2 toe membership 
of the National Security 


Council which, if necessary, 
can be convened in her ab- 
sence to oversee security 
problems. 

But Mr Enrile, himself a 
presidential aspirant, sees no 
immediate threat to the seven- 
month Government. 

“As far as T know, there is 
no danger in toe country 
during President Aquino’s ab- 
sence, especially to her 
presidency,” he told a civic 
meeting on Saturday.

Hi 




Determined smiles, committed people: the Reverend Fan] Booth, a firm supporter of the pampaigTi with the ladles' blockade at Brad well- on-Sea 

Not in our back yard 


The epistle was I Timothy 2, 1-7 on 
the Sunday before a protest blocked 
access lo the proposed site for a 
nuclear waste dump just outside 
Brad well -on -Sea in Essex. For the 
village rector, the -lesson couldn't have 
been more apposite. It was about 
praying for people in authority. 

There were only about 20 in the 
congregation of the 7th century St 
Peter’s church, but the Rev Paul 
Booth's message was for the whole 
parish (800. if you included 
neighbouring St Lawrence). 

He announced that he was totally in 
support of the protest. He feared that 
the community was being tom apart, 
and announced that he would be at the 
road block to keep out the Nuclear 
Industry' Radioactive Waste Executive 
{Nirex) men testing the site, one of 
four which it is considering 

The staunchly Conservative, mildly 
escapist backwater of Bradwell may 
not be a strong church-going commu- 
nity but Mr Booth has become a' 
figure-head in its fight against Nirex. 
He puts it down to a subsconscious 
feeling that the church should have 
some say. “There is talk about life, 
death and creation, and the instinct 
when under threat js to turn to religion 
on such fundamental matters.*' 

Mr Booth was coopted on .to the 
committee because the village wanted 
him there. To some he is the voice of 
respectability. With the church behind 
the protesters, they feel that they 
cannot be accused of anarchism. 

“I’m not a Luddite” he says. “I 
accept nuclear power as a feet of life. 
It’s the Genesis myth come true and 
there's no way back into the Garden of 
Eden. But 1 don’t believe anyone has 
the right to threaten a community with 
a quantity as unknown as nuclear 
waste. 

“What is very sad is that the people 
here no longer trust authority. The 
credibility gap is as wide as the gap 
between the sun and the moon. We’ve 
got housewives who once thought all 
protesters were cranks carrying ban- 
ners. wearing badges, sitting in the 
road and going to conferences to learn 
about protesting.” 


The once-peaceful village of Bradwell in Essex 
is now buzzing with the fever of protest 
against nuclear dumping. Barbara Toner reports 


Bradwell first heard on February 25 
the news that it had been singled out 
by Nirex without consultation, with- 
out warning and even though it met 
none of the criteria which make sites 
suitable for the burial -of low-level 
waste in shallow trenches. 

"All I can imagine is that they didn't 
know whom they thought they were 
dealing with.” Mandy Pipe, who is 
leading the campaign with her hus- 
band Les. says. “On paper it must 
have looked like we were just a lot of 
ill-educated dopes in an outpost They 
made a misjudgement” 

The misjudgement was to assume 
that mild-mannered, country-living 
Conservative voters wouldn't battle 
against the establishment But fight 
they have. There has been a power 
station at Bra dwell for 25 years which 
they have all been prepared to live 
with. But the village is now a highly 
politicized campaign centre. 

Les Pipe is chairman of the Bradwell 
Action Group, largely because he went 
to the .first meeting armed with 
information. His reaction had been to 

The mothers only gave 
first names to avoid 
any court injunctions 

ring everyone who might know more: 
Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth. 
ITV. Curiously, their MP. the Chief 
Whip John Wakeham. was someone 
they did not consider. As events 
turned out. they did not regret this 
oversight. 

The mothers on the road blockade 
have become disenchanted with the 
establishment they always valued and 
have become wily in the rules of 
effective protesting. They only gave 
their first names so as to avoid being 
targets for any court injunctions which 


Nirex might ' issue for 
obstruction. They remember with dis- 
appointment the occasion when they 
succeeded in getting John Wakeham 
to address a meeting. 

“He didn't know what we were 
worried about” Jackie, a mother 
pushing her toddler in its pram. says. 
“He said we might as well let them do 
the drilling to test the site because they 
would only discover it wasn't suitable. 
But he wasn't against dumping, tie 
was following the party tine.” 

The villagers weren’t impressed by 
the arguments put forward by Tom 
Mclnemy. Nirex managing director.- 
either. “We learned then that Nirex- 
gave us our best argument.” Jean says. 
“They contradicted themselves, they 
changed the criteria for sites, they 
admitted they didn't know what the 
long-term effects might be.” 

* Within weeks of their Erst meeting, 
the committee had circulated leaflets 
around neighbouring villages and had 
badges, stickers and T-shirts made. “I 
remember saying, *My kids aren’t 
going around in those T-shirts’” Anne 
says. “But now I never go anywhere 
without my badge." 

They petitioned in a different local 
town every Saturday, and in mid-April 
a coachload presented 17,000 sig- 
natures to 10 Downing Street. They 
threw themselves into fund-raising 
and have made £4,000 from member- 
ship subscriptions, coffee mornings 
and a barn dance. Jean's husband, who 
before had run the London Marathon 
for the British Heart Foundation and 
Cancer Research, ran this year for the 
action group. 

Twelve of them went by minibus to 
a conference run by Bedfordshire 
County Council about radioactive 
waste. “It was the first time i*d ever 
seen my husband sit through a lecture 
and listen," Anne remembers. 

In June it was decided that the small 


action groups which had sprung up 
should co-ordinate to become Essex 
Against Nuclear Dumping. Working 
groups to deal with publicity, commu- 
nications. the law and planning, 
information gathering, events and 
stunts were formed. 

Tom is in charge of stunts. He will 
decide what’s to be done when the 
blockade is broken. “It will all be 
peaceful,” he says. “But the campaign 
won't end there, it will only be 
starting. No one here wants to be 
doing th/s. We'd all much rather be 

Nirex admitted to not 
knowing what the long 
term effects might be 

getting on with our normal lives.” 

Mandy Pipe observes that Bradwell 
was dying 10 years ago. “A lot of 
people have moved here looking for a 
safe and peaceful place to raise their i 
children and they've brought life back 
to the village. Now, I think a lot would 
like to move away, but they wouldn't 
leave a sinking ship,” 

At that first meeting, Mr Booth 
remembers being impressed by the 
sanity of Les Pipe, who had said, “If 
this divides our village, it trill be worse 
than radioactive waste”. He was 
referring to a potential conflict be- 
tween those in the village and those 
who work at the power station. But 
that hasn’t arisen. 

Mr Booth’s dread now is that the 
fear and the anger which has mush- 
roomed as the village has become 
better-informed will break up the 
community. Like many of his parish- 
ioners. he is a comparatively new 
arrival, drawn to the countryside from 
inner-city strife in Manchester, after 
the death of his wife six years ago. 

Yesterday’s gospel was about Dives 
and Lazarus, or concern for your 
neighbour. “You can’t lie Ip relating it 
to everyday life.” Mr Booth remarks. 
“Anyone who says politics and, re- 
ligion aren't mixed has never read the 
Bible.”

I t is 30 years since Profes- 
sor Alan Ross coined the 
memorable distinction 
between U and hon-U in his 
learned paper on the “linguis- 
tic demarcation of the upper- 
class”. He concluded his deft 
plotting of England's socio- 
linguistic contours with 
words that which still re- 
sound unchallenged through 
the suffocating labyrinths of 
dass-consciousness: “Among 
European languages. English 
is surely the most suited to 
the study of linguistic class- 
disti notions." 

. A -generation of social 
change has passed since Ross 
opened his debate, yet very 
little has- changed. “Young' 
fogeys” pretend to be John ' 
Betjeman; Private Eye regu- 
larly parodies the BBC's par- 
liamentary correspondent, a 
harsh-voweUed Ulsterman; 
public schoolboys try to 
speak cockney; we have a 
Prime Minister who took 
elocution lessons. 

None of this fascination — 
some would say obsession — 
with the social and cultural 
nuances of the English lan- 
guage is particularly new. It ts 
almost as old as the language 
itself.. 

The United Kingdom has 
more variety of English than 
anywhere else in the world. 
Across Australia, workers 
and bosses alike speak with 
essentially the same accent 
In the United States, the East 
Coast reflects some of the 
variety of its English parent 
but the speech of middle 
America is remarkably 
unvariegated. 

Yet here in the home of the 
language — a country the size 
of New York State — the 
voice of English is a con- 
stantly-evolving cacophony 
of region, class and educa- 
tion. In George Bernard 
Shaw’s famous dictum: “It is 
impossible for an English- 
man to open his mouth 
without making some. other 
Englishman despise him.” 

Even if it were possible to 
draw a regional “dialect** 
map of the British Isles! 
mapmakers could never ex- 
press the contour lines of 
class and speech, buried deep 
in the past. Ip Shakespeare's 
lime an observant contem- 
porary was noting a dif- 
ference between the speech of 
“gentlemen” and. “the com- 
mon people”: “There be 
gentlemen and others- that 
speake, but specially write, as 
good Southeme as we of 
Middlesex or Surrey do, but 
not the common people of 
every shire, to whom the 
gentlemen, and also their 
learned darkes. do for the 
most part condescend”. 

For centuries the county 
aristocracy made almost no 
effort to imitate the English 
of the capital As recently as 
the mid- 19th century. Sir. 
Robert Peel, the Tory party 
leader, never disguised his 
Midlands speech, while Lord 
Stanley, Disraeli's patron, 
spoke “a son of Lancashire 
patois”. 

By the last decades of the 
century all had changed. 
Thomas Hardy, the Wessex

D' Urbervi lies'. “Mrs 
Durbeyficld habitually spoke 
the dialect: her daughter, who 
had passed the Sixth Stan- 
dard in the National School 
under a London-trained mis- 
tress, spoke two languages: 
the dialect at home, more or 
less; ordinary English abroad 
and to persons of quality” 

At the same time, standard 
English pronunciation had 
found its definitive label 
A J. Ellis coined the phrase 
Received Pronunciation, or 
RP, in his pioneering classic 
On English Pronunciation in 
1869. The timing was apt 
because it was the Victorian 
public schools that were 
creating a new class of RP 
speakers. 

T he public schools took 
boys with different 
backgrounds from all 
over the country and. mixing 
them together, often in iso- 
lated country Towns like 
Rugby or Uppingham, cre-

officer. ' administrative and 
consular class throughout the 
Empire - the voice of author- 
ity. This identification of RP 
with power, education, and 
success became folly institu- 
tionalized after the First 
World War Great War, with 
the-esjabtishrnent oflbe BBC, 
whose founders were .well 
aware that the age of broad- 
cast sound was a milestone. 

John Reith. the first direc- 
tor-general ofthe BBC aimed 
to achieve a- standard of 
English, written and spoken, 
which would be “the very 
best thing we could do”. An 
advisory committee on spo- 
ken ’ English was set up, 
chaired by the peremptory 
figure of George Bernard 
Shaw, whose first task was 
the question - of 
pronunciation. 

The first BBC executives 
had a certain. idealism. There 
was tire hope that a standard- 
ized English-speech would be 
an agent for social improve- 


ment. In this climate, work- 
ing-class voices were 
confined to comedy pro- 
grammes. 

It was not until the 1960s 
and 1970s that rapid social 
change was reflected in a 
widening of the accent .spec- 
trum on radio and television. 

A ctors like Albert 
Finney. Tom 

Courtenay and Frank 
Finlay, having learnt to lose 
their flat northern accents at 
RADA now found their na- 
tive speech in vogue. 

Despite the BBC. then, 
“the ngbi way” of speaking 
did not spread inexorably 
through society. It is. in fact. 

a myth that regional varieties 
of English are being flattened 
by the standardizing pres- 
sures of broadcasting. RP (or 
BBC English) has never been 
spoken by more than a tiny 
minority of the population, 
between 3 and 5 per cent. 

Yet 1986 research shows 
that RP is still the most 
highJy-fevoured accent oFEp- 
glish today. In experiments in 
which the speakers were are 
identified only by voice, RP 
speakers tend to be credited 
with qualities such as hon- 
esty. intelligence, ambition, 
even good looks. 

Out of the broadcasting 
limelight, there are s till m any 
social and cultural pressures- 
against sounding too “posh”. 
Cricketer David Gower is 
interesting: he comes from a 
middle-class background, 
went to an English public 
school — King's. Canterbury. 
It can be assumed that he was 
brought up to speak RP.Yet 
among his non-RP-speaking 
team-mates, he adopts a 
protective vernacular. Inter- 
viewed on television, be can 
be heard to shift quite rapidly 
from the accent of the chang- 
ing-room to the accent of the 
BBC. 

Like all forms of English in 
Britain. RP is in a constant 
state of evolution. Compare a 
newsreel from 1936 with a 
television broadcast from 
1966 or 1986 and you. will 
find three quite distinct ac- 
cents in play. But the motor 
of this evolution does not lie 
with the familiar arbiters of 
English — the BBC. the 
professors of linguistics, the 
writers of dictionaries. All the 
evidence suggests that lan- 
guage change comes from the 
streets.

MIDLAND. WHEN YOU NEED US WELL BE LISTENING 


Joe Bugncr follows a 
distressing boxing 
tradition today with 
his comeback fight 

There is a famous photograph, 
taken in 1951. which all 
genuine boxing fens would 
prefer not to have seen and all 
boxers planning a comeback 
should be shown. One man is 
sprawled in agony against the 
lower ropes ofthe ring, dearly 
unable lo rise, while his 
opponent turns away in 
victory. 

It is one of the saddest 
photos in sporting history. 
The man who has just been 
knocked out. helpless and 
bewildered, is Joe Louis, to 
some the supreme heavy- 
weight fighter of the century. 
Forced by tax debts to return 
to the ring, this once sleek and 
stylish boxer had become a 
cumbersome and overweight 
mediocrity. 

Thousands of embarrassed 
spectators left the arena before 
Rocky Marciano admin- 
istered the coup de grace that 
evening. Louis was 37 years 
old. just a year older than 
Britain's former European 
and Commonwealth heavy- 
weight champion Joe Bugner. 
who attempts his own return 
in Sydney today. 

“They never come back.” is 
one of the oldest and wisest of 
boxing adages. “They never 
learn.” could be another. 
Sugar Ray Leonard has also 
announced a return early next 
year to the sport he once 
graced so magnificently. Un- 
like Bugncr. who has had the 
sense to start with the Ameri- 
can James Till is. a relatively 
harmless opponent. Leonard 
will, be up against world 
middleweight champion Mar- 
vin Hagler. one of the most 
dangerous fighters around. 

Leonard ai 30 has already 
retired iw-ice, the first time in 
1982 after an operation for a 



It won't happen to me: Bugner fall of hopes in Sydney, Loon on the ropes against Marciano 


detached retina. Two years 
later, he won his first come- 
back unimpressively and im- 
mediately quit again, saying 
“I'm relieved it's over. I had 
to prove something to myself 
and 1 found that it just wasn't 
there, mentally.” 

Mohammed Ali made sev- 
eral returns to boxing. His first 
was to regain the title scan- 
dalously stripped from him 
for his refusal to be drafted 
into the army. The others were 

Big money the 
draw, pride 
the spur 


motivated by' a combination 
of the need for money (few 
hangers-on are as rapacious as 
those who surround boxing 
champions) and an obsession 
to keep proving that he was 
still “the greatest”. All's last 
title fight, against Larnr 
Holmes at the age of 38. 
revealed a shambling, slow, 
corpulent figure, unable . to 
evade even the most cumber- 
some punches from his 
opponent. 

John Morris, general sec- 
retary of the British Boxing 
Board of Controls, emphasises 
that age is not the only 


criterion when deciding 
whether to allow a boxer to 
return to the ring. “If Bugner 
came before us now — which 
he has not because the fight is 
in Australia — we would look 
into his general condition, his 
state of fitness, his record in 
his last few fights, and he 
would go through the most 
rigorous medical examina- 
tion. What's just as relevant as 
age is continuity of training” 

The records are frill of 
champions. “Ageless Archie” 
Moore and Sugar Ray Robin- 
son among them, who fought 
well into their forties. But 
boxers who retire seldom keep 
in training or shape, and 
regaining mil competitive fit- 
ness. speed, and strength be- 
comes virtually impossible. 
Snap and timing are the first 
to go- The mental edge dimin- 
ishes. and motivation is hard 
to recapture. 

Why then does Leonard, an 
intelligent, articulate man who 
knows all this from first-hand 
experience, subject himself to 
another boutof comebackrtis? 
The money he will he getting 
is hvrac — certainly not less 
than 15 million for the Hagler 
fight — but Leonard is a very 
rich man. During htscareer he 
earned around S30 million, 
more than any non-heavy- 
weight boxer ever. 


There remains pride. People 
are beginning to forget Leon- 
ard and to talk about Hagler as 
the greatest fighter of recent 
times. And Leonard was 
named after Sugar Ray Robin- 
son. world champion at both 
welterweight and middle- 
weight Leonard .dominated 
the welters and light-middle- 
weights of his time. .What 
greater dimax to his career 
than to emulate his idol at 


middleweight and then retire 
again? 

Bugner feces no such 
dreams of immortality. At 
best a pedestrian fighter.' be 
twee went the full distance 
with Ali before losing bn 
points, but could also perform 
appallingly against common- 
place opposition. He says he- is 
returning.“because there's just 
a chance 1 can still be heavy- 
weight champion of the 
world ... of course I realise 
how old I am. But after that 
fiasco between Frank Bruno 
and Witherspoon 1 just had to 
give it another go.” 

Perhaps Leonard and 
Bugner win achieve their 
objective. Every now and 
again, boxers do make 
successful comebacks. Sugar 
Ray Robinson was one. But 
the odds, and nature, are 
against them. It was Robinson 
himself who remarked: “You 
always say Tl! quit when I 
start to slide', and then one 
morning you wake up and you 
realise you've done slid.”

THE TIMES MONDAY SEPTEMBER 15 1986

Mothers who suffer a secret madness 


A kind of post-natal insanity afflicts some 
women. When Alexandra Artley suffered, 
she fou nd the problem had a long history 


O ne of the strangest 
pngs about mother- 
hood is the fact that 
being mad on and off 
seems to be almost 
normal. But people do not talk 
about it Women feel that by 
, discussmg their symptoms they 
.are bang' disloyal to themselves 
. andtiieir families. 

Perhaps because of that, when I 

went rather dotty after the birth of 

both our daughters. Mum was 
literally the word. I was, for 
certain periods between February 
and July of this year, so out of it 
> that I did not realise there was 
anything wrong with me. 

The dramatic world of puer- 
peral insanity is extremely 
fashionable at the moment. In 
Cambridge University library 
there lies a new and scarcely 
fingered PhD thesis on it, starring 
- the Second Empire alienist, 
L.V.Marc6. In Nottingham a few 
days ago the Marce Society, 

■ formed in [980, held hs third 
international conference, and 
Marce suddenly means Some- 
times Mothers Go Mad. 

- Louis Victor Marce (1828-63) 
was a sensitive and acutely obser- 
vant doctor. For centuries, vary- 
ing degrees of mental disturbance 
. associated with child-bearing had 
been noted, but Marce was the 
first to give them an interesting 
shape. ' He recognized, in the 
unfortunate women he studied, 
""the simultaneous march of 
psychiatric symptoms and phys- 
ical .changes". As hormones had 
not yet been discovered, he de- 
scribed the connection between 
brain and uterus as sympathie 
_ mnrhidc. 

Through the research society 


which bears his name. Marce is 
•likely to do for mothers in the 
1990s what Leboycr. Odent and 
the National Childbirth Trust did 
for hospital births in the Eighties. 
But whereas they were concerned 
with the physical process and 
emotional support of childbirth, 
the Marc* Sodety hopes to make 
the prevention and proper treat- 
ment of post-natal menial dis- 
orders an actuality. 

Our second daughter was bora 
in February. She was 91b 6oz andl 
felt very proud of her. After a few 
hours, though. I recognized a 
strange, painfully restless energy 
that I had also experienced several 
days after the birth of my first 
child. 1 began going backwards 
and forwards to (he foyer of the 
ward for no real reason - just for 
the exhilaration of moving. This 
relentless energy went on and on 
so that I did not sleep at all for two 
months. 

In between feeds m the middle 
of the night. 1 wrote 20.000 words 
of a book. By day I supervised 
decorators, directed a team of 
carpenters building a library. 1 
penned startling directives to the 
management of the company I 
worked for,, entertained visitors 
and generally rushed about. I was 
both lucid and confused. 

Running through all this were 
periods of feeling extremely feeble 
in the head. Writing my name on a 
postcard was a triumph of will. 
Later. I thought that by making 
me slow-witted, perhaps Nature 
was keeping me loially responsive 
to the new baby. 

In April the dreadful crashes 
started. Down 1 went to a place 
where I could only move slowly, 
as if under water. Everything was 


obscured by a grey-green veil of 
dots. 

Late one April afternoon, I 
stood washing up at the' kitchen 
sink. The water was very hot The 
next thing 1 remember is that the 
water was very cold and it was 
dark outside. 1 wept over every- 
thing (most embarrassing). ! was 
glad we lived near Ring's Cross 
station because there are a lot of 
irains there and i would walk 
under one (two women recently 
killed themselves when in this 
condition). But I could not bear 
the idea of leaving my husband 
and children behind. 

I looked at my feinlly in 
considerable despair. I knew 1 
loved them, but I had no percep- 
tion of distance or speed. I almost 
ran the pram into passing cars 
several times. Like the lengthening 
of summer evenings, the periods 
of being myself returned. From 
the high ground of September 1 
now look back on these things 
with astonishment and horror. 
Bloomsbury, where 1. live, offers 
an excellent health-care service for 
mothers and children, but. I did 
not seek professional helpL I felt I ' 
was "naturally" ill and' that drugs 
might transform me into someone 
else entirely. I also thought that if 1 
took drugs I might not be respon- 
sible enough to look after the 
children. If I took them, how 
would I know when I was better? 

I n the very serious cases he 
dealt with, Marce recognized 
a danger signal that, in a 
minor form, 1 recognized in 
myself - the restless, painful 
energy. After that, he went on to 
describe, in case after case, manic 
elation, melancholia, intellectual 
enfeeble meat,- hallucinations, 
confusion and extraordinary 
changeability. 

The “kaleidoscopic” nature of 
post-natal mental disturbance was 
noted by another medical .writer 
later in the 19th century: “We 
cannot classify them with any 


PwttYetiens 



degree of precision into mania, 
depression, melancholia and 
dementia. We shall note typical 
cases of each of these varieties, but 
I must premise by saying that it is 
common for one to passthrough alt 
these forms." 

It has been estimated that post- 
natal mental disturbance affects 
10 to 20 per cent of mothers, with 
severe puerperal psychosis occur- 
ring at a rate of one or two per 
thousand deliveries. But 
Dr Margaret Oates. Senior Lec- 
turer in Psychiatry at the 
Mapperley Hospital. Nottingham, 
who runs a special service for 
mentally ill mothers, puts the 
figure much higher than this. 
“Very severe mental illness in- 
volves hallucinations; delusions 
and the mother being out of touch 
with reality," she says. “We 
already know that four per thou- 
sand live births are referred to the 
psychiatric services, and there is a 
strong suspicion - that a better 
figure is the eight or nine per 
thousand* known to psychiatrists. 
That could be doubled again if you 
include the women who go to their 


GPs but who are not referred. 
Then there are large numbers of 
mothers with severe depressive 
illness who are supported through 
it by their families or just hidden 
away, to recover by themselves." 

If Marce got the hormonal 
theory right in 1858, why are 10 to 
20 per cent of (he child-bearing 
population still being mentally 
incapacitated for months, often 
years, at a time? It seems that 
Marat's sophisticated vision was 
rejected by early 20th-century 
“modem” psychiatry. After exist- 
ing as a separate disease for 
centuries, “puerperal psychosis” 
was officially struck off the psychi- 
atric register by Emil Kraepeliu, 
Professor Ginical Psychiatry at 
Munich from 1903-22. 

Kjraepebn classified mental Al- 
ness into a system which is still 
used today. As I understand it. he 
found that the whirligig of post- 
natal madness did not tit any of 
the pigeon holes he had neatly 
constructed, so look the disease to 
pieces and filed bits of it away 
under non-puerperal disorders. 
("See Schizophrenic disorder, see 
Brief reactive psychosis, see Major 
affective disorders, see Organic 
brain syndrome.") See anything, 
in feet, except that if your hor- 
mones are gravely unbalanced 
after the birth of a baby, you will 
almost certainly go bananas. 

In this century, some leading 
physicians have supported 
Marce’s view, including James A. 
Hamilton, formerly Clinical 
Professor of Psychiatry at Stan- 
ford. His article, “The Identity of 
Postpartum Psychosis" in Mother- 
hood and Mental Illness (Aca- 
demic Press 1982), is a stunning 
account of the way an appalling 
disease was dismembered and 
largely ignored. 

In Britain, the gynaecological 
endocrinologist. Dr Katharina 
Dalton, is convinced that “post- 
natal depression” can be pre- 
vented with progesterone, which 


has to be given during delivery. 
Progesterone is a natural hormone 
(artificial progestogens wfl] not 
do) and cannot be patented by 
drug companies. Is that another 
reason why hormone replacement 
therapy has not been developed to 
the point where it is commonly 
available? 

W hen a disease does 
not officially exist, 
whether mental or 
physical, it attracts 
little scientific re- 
search and therapeutic opportu- 
nities cannot be examined. That is 
what happened to puerperal 
ftsychosis and to her less lurid 
sister, severe post-natal depressive 
Alness. 

Now. six years after the founda- 
tion of the Marce Society, Britain 
leads the world in this extremely 
complex and volatile area of 
medical research. In the words of 
Frank Maiguon, current secretary 
of the sodety and consultant 
psychotherapist at the Manchester 
Royal Infirmary, “This severe 
mental illness is becoming better 
understood, possibly preventable 
and certainly treatable." 

Research carried out by Profes- 
sor Robert KendeU at Edinburgh 
suggests a hormonal trigger. He 
calculated that whereas bereave- 
ment or marital separation pro- 
duced the five-fold stress that 
could lead to mental Alness, 
childbirth produced a 35-fold 
stress. 

Four types of high-risk women 
are also emerging. There is the 
“highiy-adaplive professional 
woman"; the genetically disposed 
manic-depressive; the woman 
whose partner is not committed to 
her; and the emergency Caesarean 
case (this category may be expand- 
ing to include women with other 
forms of birth emergency such as 
haemoirfaagwg). 

In the Seventies, great play was 
made of social factors in “post- 
natal depression". Domestic isola- 


tion, for example, and the 
contempt which society has for the 
gentle, humble, messy processe of 
motherhood. All this is quite true, 
but many mothers feel that hor- 
monal disturbance triggers a men- 
tal state which then makes 
external problems impossible to 
cope with. 

Another Eighties view is that 
many women with powerful ma- 
ternal instincts (I am one of them) 
have been led to expect far too 
much from themselves. Having 
been wound up by the educational 
system and set down like autom- 
atons on the career track, many 
professional women in their 30s 
are now discovering that Nature 
alters a woman's mind for mother- 
hood in a way that totally conflicts 
with the mental resources she 
needs for work. 

Memory is the classic example 
of this. When my memory was 
very bad — and I felt extremely 
vague after the birth of both my 
children — I still felt totally 
bonded to them, acutely sensitive 
to their every requirement This is 
called “primary maternal 
preoccupation”, and it can mean 
that when a mother is away from 
her children she spends her work- 
ing day in a mist of grief, pain and 
disorientation. 

I have a loving family, kind 
friends and two children born in 
quick succession.This time it has 
taken seven months (last time it 
was 18 months) for me to regain 
my usual state of mind. Objects 
are solid again and some are even 
brightly coloured. It is wonderful 
to be back because, as I always 
knew, birth is a victory and not a 
defeat

Growing up in Wonderland 


; When Dirty Hairy 
met Ratgiii, the result 
was actors* empathy, 
true love — and now 
an unlikely hit movie 

The -film Rat hoy is a bitter- 
sweet' fable about an appealing 
mutant who is. dragged into 
the spotlight and finally es- 
capes Us glare in the most 

- romantic fashion, Its director 
, says: "A lot of things hap- 
pened to me in my early career 
that affected me deeply and 
which subconsciously I must 
have put on-screen.” . 

The director-in question is 
Sondra Locke. In her mid -30s, 
she is very small indeed with 
perfect white skin, no make- 
up. albino eyes, lank blonde 
hair. and the manners of a 
polite child. She wears pale 
colours, pale Victorian 
jewellery. She collects illustra- 
tions by Arthur Rackham. 
Maxfield Parrish and Edmund 
Dulac and children's books 
like the Beatrix Potter tale 
which features in her film. 

This may be a time when, 
all over Hollywood, women 
arc being allowed to direct 
pictures, but even so eyebrows 
have been raised that in 
Locke's case it seemed so easy 
for her to get more than 
£4 million from Warner Bros, 
to turn out a movie which is, 
to say the least, unusual. 

; However, it is no small 
.coincidence that Clint 
Eastwood, actor-director and 
mayorofCarmel. has an office 
at Warners — and shares 
several homes with Locke. For 
some time. Hollywood had 
suspected Eastwood was sweet 
on his fragile-looking co-star. 
But he insisted he would never 
divorce his wife Maggie, and 
Sondra said nothing at ail. 
Then suddenly there was a 
divorce. Maggie married 
Henry Weinberg. Liz Taylor's 
.car-dealer friend, and Oiitt 
was stepping out with Sondra 

- or rather slaying in with her. 
The details of their private 

life are a tantalizing secret in a 
town that hates secrets. But

Eternal child: Sondra Locke collects children's books 


gives a few clues, including a 
line about a gum "It’s empty. 
Dirty Harry" ... 

Yet the circumstances of 
Locke's liaison cannot always 
have been ideal. While 
Eastwood lives up in Northern ■ 
California's Big Sur. her base 
has been an old-style. Spanish 
house in the Los Angeles Hills, 
her favourite occupation the 
solitary one favoured by many 
a lonely woman: gardening. In 
LA, where tropical flowers run 
riot, she perversely tries to 
nurture tulips. 

"Ratboy in Wonderland", is 
how she remembers herself 
when she first arrived- in 
Hollywood. Born in a small 
town in Tennessetiocke won 
a talent contest aLthe age of 
1 8. having "watched people to 
learn acting rather than take 
classes”. 

Her father was a contractor 
and none of the family under- 
stood her compulsion to 
watch movies at all times of 
the day and night on tele- 
vision. “I never felt I belonged 
where I was." she says. 

They were all surprised 


when she was cast in Carson 
McCuller's The Heart Is .-1 
Lonely Hunter— for which she 
received an Oscar nomination 
— in 1968. 

• When she first arrived in 
LA her feeling of alienation 
worsened, "i don't know how 
1 survived. There were no 
interesting pans for young 
girls, it was not the youth- 
orientated market it is today. 
Also, this is a town which is 
very interested in plot, but not 
in character. I was interested 
in character, in strange quix- 
otic emotions. I was no good 
ai the publicity machine 
which is 80 per cent of the 
business. 

“My arrival here was truly a 
fairy tale, and 1 believed that 
something fabulous would be 
created for me by magic. As an 
actress you are accustomed to 
thinking like this and to 
waiting to be chosen.” 

When Locke first met Gim 
Eastwood, he chose not to cast 
her in 1973's Breezy — an 
oversight which she says is 
still a bone of contention 
between them. Three years 


later he made amends with a 
pan in The Outlaw Josey 
Wales and these two outsiders 
immediately bonded. I 

Ratboy shares with many of 
Eastwood's own films a fas- 
cination for the drop-outs and 
freaks who abound in Ameri- 
can life. “Ratboy is dragged in 
and wants out," Locke ex- 
plains. “He knows what it i$ to 
be different and the im- 
portance we place On material 
'things," 

; She found the story in a pile 
given to her by her agent. 
“Gim was very encouraging. 
He thought I could do it 
because over the years he has 
allowed me to be part of his 
decision-making, from casting 
to editing." 

His habit of allowing any- 
one on the set to voice their 
opinion had been a 10-year 
apprenticeship for Locke. 
More than that, in a business 
which has become decidedly 
conservative, his name has 
become a byword for risk- 
taking. 

He showed up on the 
Ratboy set twice: on the first 
day to make certain every- 
thing got off to a good start 
with his crew, and again when 
Locke was to show him the 
rough-cut. “It was terrifying,” 
she says. “! don't suppose I 
have ever fell so vulnerable.” 

An editing machine was 
installed in the new Eastwood 
home in Mount Shasta on the 
Oregon border. Eastwood 
made a couple, of suggestions 
and Locke readily agreed. Her 
eyes light up in a most old- 
fashioned way when she talks 
about him. his stamina as a 
film-maker, his taste and their 
favourite film — Bronco Billy 
— which they once took to the 
Deauville Festival together. 
On this occasion she went 
alone. 

The French view thar she 
has produced a brave movie 
has reinforced her determina- 
tion to continue directing. “1 
don't see marriage and chil- 
dren in the cards any more.” 
she says. “I think I chose this 
profession as a way to remain 
the eternal child.”

The Dublin experience (Wed- 
nesday Page, Sep 3) reveals 
how important close mother / 
baby post-birth contact is, 
although it is obviously only a 
part of the bonding process as 
discussed in the article by Liz 
Hodgkinson. 

, Where the baby is con- 
cerned, it appears important 
that there be “holding" by a 
care-taking adult, if not the 


TALKBACK 


mother, for the first half hour 
or so after the birth, the first 
hour exhibiting special 
“awake patterns" in the EEG 
(electroencephalogram) record 
of the baby. 

Onr research, at the mater- 
nity department of Plymouth 
hospital, involving many hun- 
dreds of motber/baby couples, 
supports earlier animal stud- 


ies. and studies pursued on 
smaller numbers of babies, 
indicating the valoe of immedi- 
ate mother or parent baby 
contact in matters such as 
sleep and feeding, as well as 
problems in motber/baby 
interaction at a later stage. 

In our study, post-birth 
holding by father was nearly 
as valuable as holding by 


mother (for twenty minutes or 
more); skin contact was not 
esmnfiiil for the positive ef- 
fects of proximity. 

It appears that unfortunate 
separation — for example, 
Caesarian Section under gen- 
eral anaesthetic - may be 
compensated for by later 
bolding. 

The important adult is there 
and "available”, which allows 
more readily for a mutually 
satisfying interactive rhythm 
to devdopt

Honesty test for the SDP

Even for that most pro-European 
of political parties, the SDP. there 
are limits to the entente cordiaie. 
Visitors to a fringe meeting on 
defence and disarmament on the 
eve of ihe SDP conference in 
Harrogate were promised con- 
tributions from David Owen and 
a prominent French politician, 
Jean-Francois Marie. What they 
weren’t told was that M Marie 
would be speaking en Francois. 
Although the interpreter battled 
valiantly through the 35-minute 
monologue one delegate nodded 
off and several others decided to 
say a premature au re voir. At least 
the event provided some 
enlightenment for Richard Ryder, 
Tory MP for Mid Norfolk, who is 
attending the conference for the 
BBC. and whom I overheard 
repeating with evident irony that 
celebrated remark of Julian 
Criicbley's about the SDP being 
“an exam-taking party." Perhaps 
they had better go back to school.

The Irish government has been 
asked if it wonts to buy back the 
nineteenth century equestrian 
statue of Field Marshal Viscount 
Gough which it removed from 
Dublin's Phoenix Park after the 
IRA bombed it in 1957. Two years 
ago the politically sensitive statue 
was sold to Robert Guinness, a 
member of the brewing family, on 
the understanding that he would 
lake it out of the country. This he 
did. and it now resides in Nor- 
thumberland. Guinness says he is 
mooting a resale, with a view to 
the statue again going on display, 
because of the improved relations 
between London and Dublin since 
the Hillsborough agrecmcnL Dub-

that it will meet Guinness “to hear

BARRY FANTON1 


In recent years any number of 
ambitious plans to combat pov- 
erty have ended in lailure. Today 
the SDP debates a radical scheme 
for merging tax and benefits and 
reforming both. Will it go the way 
of the broken promises of Conser- 
vatives and Labour'? 

This will be a test of the SOP’S 
values and honesty as a party. If 
wc shy away from necessary 
reform for fear of losing some 
votes we serve no purpose. The 
need for reform has seldom been 
greater. Those living on or near 
the poverty line now number 16.3 
million, nearly one family in 
three. Thai is an increase of 42 per 
Cent since 1979. 

But more is needed than good 
intentions. We need a redistribu- 
tion of wealth, but one which does 
not prejudice the creation of 
wealth. Wc need to simplify- tax 
and benefits, because their infinite 
complexity has defeated many 
past attempts at reform. Lastly we 

need proposals which- are politi- 
cally feasible. 

The first need has been met. We 
propose more generous benefits, 
but their cost would be limited 
because our approach is selective. 
That is where we score over 
Labour, who believe in universal 
benefits. But benefits which go to 
rich and poor alike are either too 
expensive or cannot be big enough 
to relieve- poverty. By being 


Dick Taverne warns against any backsliding 
on the proposals to alleviate poverty 


selective we can do more for less. 

Wc have also been realistic: our 
scheme docs not mean more 
borrowing to spend on social 
security. Instead, increased bene- 
fits would be paid for by tax 
increases — but these would come 
from changing tax allowances, not 
increasing lax - rates. Thus the 
disinccnti vc effects of higher taxes 
on extra earnings would be 
avoided. Indeed, our proposals 
would provide greater incentives 
for unemployed and young people 
to lake work. 

The second need has been met. 
Wc propose a major simplifica- 
tion. Two benefits, family income 
supplement and supplementary 
benefit, would be replaced by one 
basic benefit two separate taxes, 
national insurance and income 
lax. would be -fused into one. 
merging the administration of (ax 
and benefits. 

Abolishing the individual's na- 
tional insurance contribution is of 
special importance in making the 
system fairer and ampler. These 
contributions masquerade as an 
insurance scheme; As their size 
bears no relation to the size of 
benefits, they are a tax. Indeed- 
they are a very bad tax. which is 


hugely expensive to administer, 
hurts the low-paid and discour- 
ages young people from taking 
work. It is surprising bow long this 
nonsense has survived. 

The. main doubts, however, 
have concerned the political fea- 
sibility of our proposals. These 
doubts arise partly from distor- 
tions and misunderstandings. 
Conservatives, for example, have 
alleged that we would be putting 
up income tax to 38 per cent. Not 
so. Under our scheme, two taxes, 
of 9 per cent and 26 per cent 
respectively, would be merged 
into one of 38 per cent. They say 
that pensioners would be paying 
38 per cent where now they pay 29 
per cent. Not so. Because pension- 
era do not pay national insurance 
we propose that they should pay a 
special rate of 29 per cent 

Most serious has been the 
genuine misunderstanding that all 
taxpayers who earn more than 
£10,000 would lose. Again, not so. 
The error has arisen because when 
you reform a system riddled with 
anomalies there is no simple 
break-even point for gainers and 
losers. Some who gain from 
present anomalies would lose; 
others, who now lose, would gain. 


Our new. simpler system would 
affect people differently according 
to their special circumstances. 
There is no simple pattern ol 
gainers and losers. 

What we can say is that a 
substantial majority of basic-rate 
taxpavers would gain (those earn- 
ing up to £ 1 7.200 a year): but we 
must also frankly admit that many 
people, who may be considerably 
better off than the average; but 
who are not rich, will have to pay 
perhaps £2 to £3 a week more. The 
buirien would rise at the higher 
rate bands. 

But are such tax increases 
politically feasible? If they are not. 
then Britain faces a continuation, 
indeed worsening, of poverty. It is 
hypocrisy to pretend, as Labour 
does, that you need only tax the 
very rich to help the poor. 
Conservative policy is that no one 
should pay more tax. Let us be 
quite dear what this implies: the 
poor must be left to rot. 

We should put to the electorate 
very dearly one of the central 
questions of the day: are we to 
become the country with the 
greatest division between rich and 
poor in Europe? This division is 
growing and it is making Britain a 
less attractive place. The SDFs 
answer is No. Of this we should be 
proud.

In one of an occasional series on the internal factors In the South African power struggle, 
Michael Attwell forecasts that the whites will yield — but peace will be hard to achieve 



At some point within 15 years the 
African National Congress is 
likely to win the first democratic 
election in South Africa and form 
a black government. It will win 
because black nationalism will 
bring white supremacy to an end. 
and the ANC is the authentic 
voice of that nationalism. 

Its leaders already enjoy major- 
ity support among urban blacks 
and are gaining further ground 
there and in rural areas. It is the 
only uncompromiscd political 
force.sufficiently broadly based to 
lead black South Africa. 

Few people accept that we are 
now witnessing the beginning of 
the showdown between whiteand 
black nationalism, but I believe 
we are. Ultimately the whites will 
have to choose between black rule 
and their own ruin. 

The South African government, 
despite two states of emergency, 
enormous numbers of detentions, 
thousands of deaths and unceasing 
policing, is unable to end the 
turmoil.Its control of black town- 
ships has broken down, probably 
irretrievably.. Black forces are 
setting themselves up there as 
alternative authorities. And apart- 
heid legislation is being jettisoned. 
It makes nodifference: the govern- 
ment has lost the initiative and is 
unable to regain it 

The economy still stands largely 
unscathed - but it can only face 
unrelenting assault. White cities 
and residential suburbs remain 
calm - but the chaos will slowly 
spread into these areas. Whites go 
about their normal business - but 
it will be increasingly disrupted by 
riot, arson, bombings and murder. 

No amount of force and no 
political initiative by the govern- 
ment (including any achievement 
of power-sharing with "moderate" 
blacks) can stop this. Too many 
blacks are determined that the 
majority shall rule. The whites 
have already lost faith in their own 
supremacy: they are engaged in a 
holding operation, and Know it. 
They intend to fight on, but this 
will bring only greater calamity. 

.As the prospect of growing peril 
and dislocation stretches before 
them, and as majority rule looms 
with an ever greater sense of 
inevitability, the point will be 
reached where the bulk of whites 
begin to accept that black govern- 
ment is a lesser evil. In the end the 
surrender document will be 
signed. 

The ANC will not find its 


Shape of life 
when the ANC 
is in power 


transition to power easy. Many 
whites will refuse to accept the 
new- dispensation. Armed groups 
win continue to resist, and sec- 
tions' of the police and army may 
rebel. However, with the majority 
of whites having come to terms 
with their new future, white rebels 
will find their support too narrow 
to sustain opposition indefinitely. 

At the other extreme, many of 
the insurrectionary young blacks 
who have become accustomed to 
answering only to themselves will 
remain a violent destabilizing 
presence, and may join battle with 
the ANC over its political stanoe. 
But the black street dissidents will 
find themselves alienated from the 
broader black population by a 
descent into lawlessless and ban- 
ditry. This, coupled with the 
ANCs democratic endorsement, 
its control of the bulk of the armed 
forces, and the mobilization of its 
own supporters, will eventually 
silence them: but the process 
could last years. ■ 

A longer-term problem will be 
how to deal with the whites. A 
large minority are going 10 find 
some of their worst fears con- 
firmed. More than half the Afri- 
kaner workforce — about a third of 
all white workers — is in the public 
sector. They are often the least 
well-educated whites, the most 
racist, and the most despised. 

The ANC will be under enor- 
mous pressure to find jobs for the 
millions of unemployed blacks. It 
will also want to remove .the state 
machinery from unsympathetic 
hands. So a large number of whites 
will find themselves displaced, 
and have to eke out a livelihood in 
the market-place. 

The majority of whites, how- 
ever. will discover, to their sur- 
prise. that their lives do not 
change all that much. There will 
be no driving them into the sea or 
wholesale slaughter. The ANC has 
long accepted that the whites have 


a right to a home in South Africa. 
Its adherence to non-racism has 
been, as evident- in its history and 
conduct as in its philosophy. 

The majority of whites have an 
economic base independent of the 
state. They have skills and know- 
how that blacks will need. The 
ANC will want to preside over a 
prosperous country. Certainly it 
will take majority shares in the 
largest mining and industrial com- 
plexes: certainly it will nationalize 
some land and redistribute it to 
the needy. But for most whites, 
their capital, income and life- 
styles will be little affected. 

Ironically enough, it is black 
South Africa that will bear the 
greatest burden. The long suffoca- 
tion of black political life has 
prevented proper representative 
structures from developing. The 
new South Africa will have to 
endure a long period of political 
evolution as these are formed, 
tried, tested and altered. 

The ANC will come to power as 
the beneficiary of opposition to 
white supremacy. Once that has 
gone, the rallying point will go. 

The ANC has plenty of 
cnemies.There are conservative 
blacks: some rural, some urban. 
Among the rural are the 
“homeland” leaders.' notably 
Chief Gatsha Buthelezi of 
KwaZulu. He is ambitious, 
impressive and powerful: he has a 
political organization perhaps a 
million strong with a paramilitary 
character. 

Among the urban conservatives 
are elements of the educated elite, 
the new middle class, and the 
adherents of conservative re- 
ligious movements such as the 
Church of Zion. None of these 
forces is strong enough to prevent 
the ANC victory. Bui afterwards 
they could together mount a 
formidable challenge. 

Then there are more radical 
blacks. There is a long tradition of 


“Africanism" in black South Af- 
rican politics. It represents the 
idea that only those who identify 
fully with "Africa" are true citi- 
zens. It is avowedly non-racist — 
but the practical effect of its 
approach is that many whites fall 
outside the range of its sympathy, 
whatever it says. 

It has also become fused in its 
more modern forms with radical 
opposition to capitalism, which it 
sees as a mechanism of those who 
are not true Africans to exploit 
those who are. One can see at once 
the potency of these ideas. . ■ 

The ANC. however hard it tries, 
will not be able to transform most 
black South Africans' lives im- 
mediately. Many will be disillu- 
sioned. There will be a widespread 
feeling that the ANC is being too 
conciliatory to whites. Many will 
want more radical action. Today 
the Africanist tradition is kept 
alive by relatively small urban 
groups: bat its long endurance is 
testimony to the strength of its 
appeal; its organizations are 
coherent and well-entrenched; it 
too has a paramilitary tradition. 
Here is more conflict in the 
making — and the promise of 
further violence. 

If is foolish — and racist — to 
believe that all these disparate 
forces, black and white, are evil 
and bent on destruction. The men 
and women who compose them 
are honourable people who feel 
they must do what seems right. 
We can only regret that human 
beings are not better than they are. 
-Under a wiser white govern- 
ment a peaceful sorting out of 
South African political life might 
have been possible. With states- 
manship the whiles would have 
recognized -the needs of their 
fellow citizens and built bridges 
with the people who wish them ho 
barm. Sadly, they are neither wise 
nor statesmanlike. 

We have not yet been allowed to 
see the mettle of South Africa’s 
first black rulers — but we shall. 
The stresses and strains of the new 
society . will be severe. Only 
extraordinary insight and skill on 
their part will prevent South 
Africa's long blood-letting from 
enduring.

Commonwealth visas: Whitehall divided 


Will the decision 10 introduce 
visas for visitors from “black" 
Commonwealth countries prove 
an impossible task? The Foreign 
Office is claiming that reports 
from its high commissions in 
Nigeria. Ghana. Pakistan. Bangla- 
desh and India suggest just that. 

Foreign Office spokesman are 
putting out gloomy predictions 
about lack of staff and lack of 
office space, and ihe impossibility 
of quickly increasing either to deal 
with more than 450.000 visitors a 
tear. In Lagos, for example, it 
claims that after only one month 
there w ill be a backlog of 8.000 
Nigerians clamouring for visas. 
This figure is based on the 
estimate that, in ihe short term, 
only six immigration officers can 
be diverted to the task. who. 
together with staff from the 
commercial section, will issue 
only about 200 visas a day. But 
every week 3.000 Nigerians apply 
10 travel to Britain. 

The Foreign Office foresees two 
consequences. First, visas will be 
faked: second, visitors will break 
their journey to acquire them in 
countries along the way. 


Equally acute, they say. is the 
problem of office, space and 
discomfort envisaged for existing 
Staff. In one city on' the sub- 
continent. the Foreign Office, 
despairing of' finding suitable 
premises in time, has suggested 
that a first secretary should vacate 
the ground floor of his house. 

Officials say that for an orderly 
system to be introduced, nine 
months to a year of-preparation is 
needed. This would allow time to 
recruit and train extra staff and to 
provide adequate living accom- 
modation. offices and security 
measures. Yet the deadline envis- 
aged by the Home Office is one of 
weeks rather than months. 

How realistic are these fears? 
Certainly recruitment may take 
time (who would wish to endure 
the rigours of Lagos on a govern- 
ment salary?). However, the num- 
bers involved are small. The 
Foreign Office quotes a figure of 
1 50 additional staff, but the Home 
Office puts the figure at only 50. 

The image of thousands of 
Nigerians or Indians running 
amok on ihe streets in their 
anxiety to acquire a British visa 


may also be exaggerated. The 
problem of queueing can be cut 
down by arranging appointments, 
which can be quickly done by 
locally hired staff. This already 
happens in Egypt, where three full- 
rime officers, with occasional 
relief help, dealt with 45.000 
appplicants last year. Only the 
actual interview, which is in- 
tended to sort out genuine visitors 
from those who intend to stay 
illegally, needs 10 be conducted by 
a British official. 

Another factor which may make 
the situation less drastic than the 
Foreign Office maintains is the 
lime of year. As students return to 
university, the -summer crush 
declines dramatically. 

.In assessing the logistical argu- 
ment. it is important to bear in 
mind the strong underlying doubts 
in the Foreign Office about the 
wisdom of the policy in principle. 
Pains arc being taken to play down 
any differences between the Home 
Office and the Foreign Office, but 
Foreign Office doubts peraisL 

■it is not so much that visas in 
themselves arc seen as in- 
equitable. The problem lies rather 


in the fact that the new regulations 
are to be applied to the black 
Commonwealth and not to the 
white at a lime when relations 
with black countries are at a low 
ebb because of the row over South 
African sanctions. 

Both the timing and the manner 
ofthe announcement create severe 
difficulties for the Foreign Office 
in trying to heal the rift The 
temptation to postpone the in- 
troduction of the new measures at 
least until the South . African 
question is resolved is therefore 
very great. Emphasizing the prac- 
tical difficulties provides a useful 
argument for delay. 

To the Foreign Office the affair 
is in feet another example of the 
govern ment's current parochial 
preference for short-term domes- 
tic expediency at the expense of 
long-Lerm foreign policy consid- 
erations. To Downing Stret and 
the Home Office, .the objections 
no doubt appear as nothing more 
than customary Foreign Office

How will Angela 
do at school? 




My first job was in the kitchens of 
the Dorchester Hotel: I was a yeg 
cook. There came a day when the 
. cher said: "Boy. you beena all 
right: nexta week you worka on de 
fish.” It was a substantial promo- 
tion and I telephoned my parents 
to give them the good news. 

Nothing like that at West- 
minster you go quietly about your 
business, sneaking on your col- 
leagues to the Chief Whip, writing 
letters to the newspapers, become 
secretary of the All Party Group 
for the Encouragement of Hare 
Coursing. Then word comes: 

"Wait by your telephone on 
Wednesday afternoon." Mind 
you. no hint of whether you are to 
become Minister for Social Se- 
curity. be stripped of office and 
clobbered with a Damehood or get 
sept to Northern Ireland and have 
three bodyguards for the next five 
years. . . 

The hiring and finng is at the 
whim of Her and the convention 
that there must be a telephone call 
is understood by all. If you are out. 
you don't get the job: on the other 
hand, if you are not in. you don’t 
get sacked either, which is why the 
more vulnerable ministers take 
long holidays on Turkish camp- 
sites. 

Last week’s shuffle, positively 
the final shuffle before the redeal, 
was to have been announced last 
Tuesday, then on Wednesday 
afternoon, then on Wednesday 
evening. Even though the House is 
in recess, the intake of ’83 — the 
rumoured beneficiaries — stood 
self-consciously around the 
Members' Lobby. 

“Good luck." we said to them, 
passing by, rather as the static 
citizens shouted "God speed” to 
the equestrians who galloped the 
good news 10 Ghent 

We all knew the sort of people 
who were going 10 get promoted, 
and most of us had read the names 
of the principal candidates for the 
chop. Dunn was to go: rumour had 
it that Dunn was still there only 
because they couldn't find him to 
sack him last time. Dunn was jolly 
lucky to have got there in the first 
place. Then there was Jopling 
odds-on for the back benches a 
month ago before She leaked the 
view that a change at Cabinet level 
could needlessly rock the boat as 
the election approaches. So 
Jopling was staying. 

Was Ryder too wet. Hogg too 
bluff. Currie too brash. Portillo 
too new. Hayhoe too old? They sat 
in buzzingdistance of their phones 
— dear Edwi na actually in camera- 
shot - doing the little things we 
MPs do to keep us occupied. 

When the dust had settled it was 
deemed to have been thejnvolve- 
ment of women that stood out as - 
the most notable issue. Edwina 
had got a job. Angela had got a 


bigger job. Peggy- * ho had a 
job. is now a Dame. . 

Chris Patten has not gone ■ nt 
has left education for the Foreign 
Offi« ^ charge of overseas 
development. He has been pushed 
from children whom he under- 
stood and from teachers who 
misted him above an> of h» 
colleagues. 1 believe that even his 
ideological opponents would con- 
sider his move a blow to educa- 
tion. in tittle under a V^*ar he 
turned round the political **52 
of the Department of Education 
within the educational worW - 
and. given the appa ling record of 
the well-meaning but accident- 
prone Sir Keith, that « 
something to be dismissed l hg». 
He has made some of the best- 
informed and most thoughttul and 
thought-provoking speeches ‘ 
have read; now he is not 10 be 
allowed to see through the Educa- 
tion Bill. , . . 

Without going soft on teachers 
professional obligations, he has 
done much to restore their faith in 
government and the hope or a 
decent standing in society. As one 
union official commented. ' He is 
the only thing that would ever 
incline me to vote Tory.” 

Sources close to the Pnnw 
Minister have gone out of their 
way to stress that his move is 
"career development”, not demo- 
tion or a vote of no confidence. 
But one wonders what even a man 
of his great ability will be able to 
achieve. Overseas development 
has greater problems of financial 
and public support than educa- 
tion, and while Patten realized 
that being nice to the teachers was 
not enough, he will have even less 
room for manoeuvre at the For- 
eign Office. 

Given the rightward shut at 
Environment — the compounding 
of Ridley with Boyson - there is a 
real danger that cash limits will be 
kept so tightly screwed down that 
the expectations placed on the 
education service cannot be met. 

I know little of Mrs Rumbold. 
Patten's successor at ediuucation. 
She has a background in local 
education and some experience of 
independent review bodies for 
public-sector pay. which is 
promising. She comes from Kings- 
ton-upon-Thamcs, one of the last 
bastions of selective education, 
which is less uplifting 

1 fear, for education's sake, that 
the Prime Minister has blundered. 
Mrs Rumbold, we are told in 
Parliamentary Profiles, is a sup- 
porter of the £1 note and Chelsea 
football club. One has gone, the 
other is declining 1 only hope, she 
becomes a fen of the state educa- 
tion system. Ninety-four per cent 
of our children have need of her.

Trivial Pursuit is the newest social 
disease to be identified, at least 
judging from some of the letters 
we get in the office. The symptoms 
include asking to be given encyclo- 
paedias at Christmas, compul- 
sively asking quiz questions at 
■dinnerparties when one should be 
talking about South Africa, and 
waking up in the middle of the 
night shouting “I'll go for arts and 
entertainment!" Our advice to 
such sufferers is succinct: stop 
writing letters to this office. 

Some correspondents, however, 
db seem to be genuine seekers 
after knowledge and today we 
answer several of their more 
interesting questions, about well- 
known wonds and names. 

Why do so many German place 
names begin with “bad”, as In Bad 
Eras, but so many Islamic place 
names end with it, as In Islamabad 
and Hyderabad? — LM. of Bath. 
Because the Germans write from 
left to right, but Muslims write

Wbo'was Improvement Grant? — 
H.C. of Edinburgh. 

Just as “Capability" Brown was 
the foremost English landscape 
gardener of his day, so “Im- 
provement" Grant was the leading 
landscape gardener in Scotland. 
As you might expect, his art was 
much more puritanical than we 
are used to in England, and he 
banned all colourful plants from 
his garden. At the end of each vista 
he placed a small, stern kirk and 
caused church bells to be rung at 
hourly intervals. He invented a 
small steam-driven sundial, which 
told the time by the rain. To the 
end of his days he tried to perfect a 
flowering shrub which would not 
flower on the Sabbath, but sadly 
he died before he could find it. 
Where Is Vitreous China? - S.K. 
of Aberystwyth.

Is Conor Cruise O'Brien the only 
politician named after a travel 
agency? — R-P. of Canterbury. 

No. He is the only politician 
named after a nuclear missile. 

I read the other day that Prince 
Ludwig Xavier of Frantschberg- 
Spfltlese suffered from “a misspelt 
youth" Was this a misprint? — 

HM. qf Leeds. 

No. He came to manhood without 
anyone being able to spell his 


name accurately. This was com- 
pounded by his dreadful hand- 
writing which caused him to be 
dubbed “Europe's most illegible 
bachelor” 

Who is Booker Prize Junior? — 
T.K.of London W77. 

Booker Prize Junior is a soul 
singer, said to be the most 
intellectual one in his field. His 
long involved songs tend to deal 
with the problems of Maori 
hunchbacks growing up in a 
deprived environment, or Italfan 
peasants grappling with incest and 
grape harvest failure. Though 
critically acclaimed, he has never 
had a hit record. 

What exactly are Baby Boomers?

The word “refute” is often used 
wrongly, as in "Minister angrily

Accurately, that sentence should 
read: “Minister angrily rings up

The simultaneous transfer of 
Nicholas Daniloff and 
Gennady Zakharov into the 
custody of their respective 
ambassadors has temporarily 
defused what threatened to 
become a new explosion of 
East-West acrimony. It may 
also have saved the second 
Reagan-Gorbachov summit 
meeting. But the calm in 
American-Soviet relations has 
been bought at a price, and 
that price may have been too 
high. 

By agreeing to trade the 
transfer of the US journalist 
for the Soviet scientist, the 
United States has for the first 
time acknowledged the 
equivalence of the two cases, 
ti No matter that the American 
Secretary of State. George 
Shultz, publicly rejected that 
interpretation. No matter that 
American spokesmen insist 
that the decision was taken on 
purely humanitarian grounds 
and that the issue is still wide 
open. No matter that Zak- 
harov might still face a trial in 
the US. The fact is that a 
parallel between Daniloff aCnd 
Zakharov has been made, and 
has been seen to be made, by 
the rest of the world. 

The US has gone back on its 
earlier statements. Its position, 
in principle and in practice, is 
no longer as strong as it was a 
week ago. Thau at least, is the 
appearance. 

There may be. in fact, a 
distinction between appear- 
ance and reality in this in- 
stance. In international 
diplomacy — especially where 
it touches the spectra) world of 
espionage — there often is. 
Daniloffs release from the. 
Lefortovo prison to the US 
Embassy compound may have 
been traded for something 
more substantial than bail for 
the Soviet scientist There may 
be more to one case - or the 
other — than will ever be 
made public. But the appear- 
ance suggests otherwise; and 
appearance or image is the 
stuff of international politics. 


FALSE EXCHANGE 


■s-a 




T, i . 


k 


Appearance suggests that by 
taking Daniloff . hostage the 
Soviet Union will eventually 
obtain for Zakharov a lesser 
penalty than his conduct mer- 
ited. And the reason appears to 
be a mutual acceptance on the 
part of the superpowers that 
their relations are too im- 
portant to be sacrificed to a 
dispute over lwo individuals. 

Superficially and generally, 
such a motive is reasonable. 
Should the future prospects for 
a more stable worldl currently 
hinged on the forthcoming 
summit, be jeopardized for the 
sake of one journalist and one 
scientist? Of course not. But 
that question as formulated 
obscures one vital aspect of the 
affair. This is that the Soviet 
Union has conducted itself in 
such a way as to invite the 
question of whether a Summit 
in present circumstances can 
be productive. 

The Soviet side, with or 
without Mr Gorbachov's say- 
so. resorted to hostage-taking. 
Whatever else is murky, the 
sequence of the Zakharov and 
Daniloff arrests makes, this 
quite clear. That the Russians 
would not release Daniloff for 
the sake of the summit, but 
insisted on a concession over 
Zakharov fust, suggests a dis- 
regard of wider international 
interests which is in- 
commensurate with the Soviet 
Union's responsibilities as a 
great power. 

It also suggests that the 
Soviet Union is more con- 
cerned about presenting a 
tough image to the worid than 
it is about actually talking. 

The United States, with its 
greater international con- 
fidence. was perhaps more 
capable of making a tactical 
retreat for the sake of an 
improved international cli- 
mate. It is instructive that 
those in the US administration 
whose primary concern was 
that President Reagan should 
meet Mr Gorbachov appear 
now to have achieved then- 
objective. But they sacrificed 


considerations in 


important 
doing so. 

They have demonstrated, 
first, that the United States is 
prepared to make concessions 
simply in order to get to the 
summit table. That must 
weaken the American bargain- 
ing position since the Soviet 
side may feel able to extract 
further concessions by the 
threat of walking out. That 
calculation may be wrong. But 
the summit might fail on that 
account 

, The nature of the American 
concession is hardly less 
significant It establishes a 
precedent that the the Soviet 
Union can bully the US 
administration into releasing a 
Soviet spy by taking any 
available American citizen as a 
hostage. In effect Moscow has 
established a system of spying 
without tears which rests upon 
the vulnerability of all US 
citizens, notably journalists, 
on Russian soiL Admittedly, a 
summit may not always be just 
ahead to exert additional pres- 
sure: but the desire for good 
East-West relations is a perma- 
nent element in Western pub- 
lic opinion. 

If the United States is 
prepared to place the inter- 
national climate above the 
reputation of one of its citi- 
zens. then it should have made 
clear the benefits of doing so 
much earlier; The tactical 
retreat would have been more 
convincing if the preli manes 
to an exchange had been 
broached earlier. As it was. the 
US administration wobbled 
indecisively. Having once in- 
sisted that the cases of Daniloff 
and Zakharov were in no way 
equivalent they would have 
done well to hold out for more. 
Instead, they gave away the 
point of principle they had 
initially declared sacred. The 
Solzhenitsyns of this worid 
whochide the west with lack of 
resolution in opposing the 
Soviet regime may not be 
entirely wrong, if a US-Soviet 
summit has been bought at the 
expense of so vital a principle. 


THE LEAKY MINISTRY 


if the Royal- Navy’s warships 
leaked as often as its staff, the 
safety of the realm would be in 
jeopardy. While one cannot 
pre-judge the Whitehall in- 
quiry into the discovery of 
classified naval documents on 
a tow-path near Reading at the 
weekend, the timing — at the 
start of the party conference 
season — has already given 
grounds for some suspicion. 

Those sections which have 
been released are, as revela- 
tions, less than devastating. 
The documents, whose 
authenticity was confirmed by 
the Ministry of Defence last 
night, reflect well-known ser- 
vice concern over a diminu- 
tion in the size of the fleet with 
the prospective real decline in 
the defence budget through the 
1980's. This threatens the 
senior service in all three 
elements — below, upon and 
above the sea. 

In the last twelve months, 
there has been considerable 
speculation about the real 
effect that the slackening rate 
of building surface escorts and 
the burgeoning costs of new 


equipment could have on the 
Navy of the 1990s. The impact 
on the budget of finding 
replacements for the Royal 
Marines' major assault ships, 
and the interruption in the 
building programme for 
nuclear-powered attack sub- 
marines caused by the need to 
construct four giant new boats 
to cany the Trident missile — 
these have provided fertile 
ground for debate. In general, 
it became clear about two 
years ago that after seven fet 
years to 1986, the Ministry of 
Defence was about to begin 
seven lean ' ones. The docu- 
ment spells out a particularly 
gloomy interpretation of the 
consequences. 

As the Soviet Embassy reads 
British newspapers more 
assiduously, none of this will 
have been lost upon Red 
Square. At best, the documents 
as reported might confirm for 
the KGB the reliability of Fleet 
Street as a secondary source. 

The impact of this bizaire 
find is likely to be heavier on 
the Government’s constit- 
uency at home than on its 


enemies abroad. What the 
papers do is to underline the 
pressures which are building 
up on Britain's conventional 
forces at a time when ' the 
defence debate is reopening — 
and also at a time when the 
Whitehall battle for funds is 
getting under way. While it is 
hard to believe that any senior 
military bureacrat would go to 
such extraordinary lengths for 
the sake of a political lobby, 
the Ministry's reputation for 
judicious leaking is such that 
the possibility cannot be over- 
looked. 

If so, it is doubly regrettable. 
Unless the documents contain 
more than has so far been 
released, their value to a 
foreign power may be limited. 
But that confidential docu- 
ments from such a sensitive 
Ministry could be so openly 
publicised is itself a serious 
matter. There is an argument 
for declassifying much of the 
material which at present fells 
into the “restricted” domain. 
But until the existing rules are 
changed, the Ministry must 
keep them. 


THE OLD CAUSE (WHOLESALE) 


Let Mr Kinnock tremble. In 
the new classless, unisex multi- 
cultural worid that shapes 
today's political conflict a new 
kind of Tory is about to 
emerge heartened to fight the 
good fight against socialism — 
and equipped to do so with top 
quality leather goods. The 
Blue Rosette scheme, 
launched today by the Tory 
Party, is to raise money from 
the party faithful by offering 
them, at a discount every kind 
of lure from a good glass of 
claret to a holiday (and the 
luggage to go with, or to, it) 

Soon the true conservative 
-best defined in these fac- 
tional days as a Tory who pays 
his subscription by bankas* 
order — will be ready for 
anything from the washing up 
in the local committee room to 
keeping boredom away with a 
good book in the small hours 
while waiting for a recount 

Wearing a Conservative tie 
in quality silk, or a lady’s 
apron with matching tea towel 
(or quite possibly all three in 
such special circumstances as a 
nervous masculine wish to 
ward off the charge of sexism 
from Guardian women), he 
will be able to drink bis Earl 
Grey from a mug bearing the 
party emblem. Or as a histori- 
cal tribute to a past party 
leader, he can carry a specially 
supplied umbrella. Even at . 
Chnstmas the party will be in 


his thoughts m the form of a 
bagful of leather goods and 
other party products, with 
which he can sniff the nuclear 
family stockings. 

It used- to be supposed that 
while socialists lived and 
breathed politics (even their 
sex lives being more of a 
political gesture than a matter 
of personal fulfilment), the 
average Tory used politics for 
strictly non-political ends. In- 
deed, Tories avoided even 
political labels where they 
could, going under such guises 
as Ratepayers or Independents 
in local politics. 

From the knight of the shire 
to the suburban tobacconist, 
all were united round the 
thought that the best sort of 
voter cannot stand too much 
politics. Once it was agreed 
that socialism was beyond the 
pale, the least said or thought 
about current affairs the better. 
Even the Young Conser- 
vatives were contemptuously 
dismissed as nothing more 
than a matrimonial agency by 
foes who failed to see that this 
was much the best and most 
natural way of producing 
young Conservatives. 

All this, however, has long 
since changed. The Young 
Conservatives now luxuriate 
in some pretty controversial 
thinking (though their 
thoughts are not quite so 
controversial as those of the 
Federation of Conservative 


Students to whom not even 
Lord Stockton is sacred.) All 
sorts and conditions of 
Conservatives are into fecti on- 
fighting these days. Some have 
even developed a taste for 
“ideas”. 

' Now they will all be re- 
minded of their basic alle- 
giance by the party silk knick- 
knacks. emblematic mugs, and 
bulging hampers which will be 
scattered about their houses 
thanks to the Blue Rosette 
scheme. Commerce will unite 
where dogma divided. 

And when day is done, they 
can retire to bed with a good 
book. For the recent recruit, 
this might be the equivalent of 
the tittle red books issued 
under Labour auspices, or the 
diagnoses of Dr David Owen. 
But the true conservative has 
an alternative — one which 
harmonises with the old 
apolitical instincts of decent 
Tories. He can choose instead 
a rattling good yam by Mr 
Jeffrey Archer, specially signed 
by the author. 

Only one thing seems to be 
missing from this amazing 
representation of the modem 
ad-man*s presentational art 
the kind of information pack 
which comes through the very 
best from doors these days and 
which, in this instance, might 
even be used to provide an 
easily digestible account of the 
party's policies.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Use of funds to study ‘cot deaths’ Level of crime 

From Mr Foul Ashton and Miss 
Baksho Sandhu 

Sir, In your editorial (September 
9) on the breakthrough by' foe 
medical researchers at Sheffield 
Children’s Hospital in discovering 
that an enzyme deficiency is 
present in some babies who die 
mysteriously of “rot deaths”, you 
rightly point out that establishing 
neo-natal screening for all new- 
born babies would be extremely 
costly. 

You conclude, however, that 
there is, nevertheless, a good case 
for proceeding with such tests. We 
would question that conclusion 
and would argue that if fends were 
to become available for nation- 
wide screening there are alter- 
native, more cost-effective, uses 
for those resources in neo-natal 
and post-natal health care. 

The maximum number of ba- 
bies whose lives might be saved by 
identifying and treating MCAD 
(Medium Chain Acyl-coenzyme A 
dehydrogenase) deficiency is es- 
timated at between 5 and 10 
percent of the 1400 to 2,000 “cot 
deaths'* per year. Let' us say that 
ISO deaths might be prevented. 

The cost of carrying out tests fa 
the deficiency is put at over £250 
per case, though this might crane 
down to, say, £150 due to econo- 
mies of scale if mass-screening of 
an new-born babies - 700,000 per 
year — was introduced. 

The total cost of screening all 
babies, then, would be about £100 
million per year, or £700,000 per 
child life. In fact, however, the 
per-child cost would be even. 


higher than this, since possibly as 
many as half the 150 babies ax risk 
would be identified and treated at 
very little cost, now that the 
hereditary link has been, estab- 
lished. 

Since -Dr Bennett and his team 
have shown that mothers who 
have already experienced one cot 
death are most at risk, tests could 
instead be confined to this group 
and to many of the “near-miss" 
cot death cases. Thus the true cost 
per child life of mass-screening 
would be well over £1 million. 

If there are additional resources 
available to tackle the problem of 
neo-natal deaths, we suggest that 
they should go into further re- 
search to find ways of pre v en tin g 
the other 90-95 percent of cot 
deaths and to increasing the 
number of staff in special baby 
care units, some of which have 
incubators and equipment lying 
idle while very sick babies are 
turned away. 

We feel sure that £100 million 
spent in this way would save many 
more babies than the net £70 
million to £80 million that might 
be saved fay mass neo-natal screen- 
ing for MCAD deficiency.

Bath, sin city ? 

From MrJ. T. Pearce 
Sir. In your issue of September 8 
you report on foe vice and crime, 
existing in 18th-century Bath. The 
Chief Inspector of Bath Police 
states that Bath is now more like 
sun city than sin city. 

Both my parents and both sets 
of grandparents were natives of 
Bath and as a boy. I had many 
happy visits to the riiy. So in June, 
to celebrate the 70th birthdays of 
my wife and myself we took my 
son and daughter and their 
spouses and our four grand- 
children to Bath for a nostalgic 
weekend. 

On the Friday night, after 
dinner, we decided on a walk in 
the centre of the city. Within 10 
yards of our hotel in Queen Square 
we were surrounded by drunken

British library 

From Professor J. Mordaunt 
Crook. 

Sir. Lord Quinton's argument 
(September 10) is based on a 
fallacy: that the “totality” of the 
British Library's holdings can be 
stored and used on a single site. 
That is not the case now, and 
never will be. Indeed the plans for 
a new. library at St Pancras 
perpetuate the principle of 
fragmentation: the newspaper li- 
brary will remain at Colindale, 
and large sections of primed 
material are to be outfaoused in a 
separate depository in Islington. 

So why not save money — and 
make use of fine architecture at 
the same time — by keeping 
Certain categories of books at 
Bloomsbury? 

The Royal Library should re- 
main in the building designed to 
house it: Robert Smirke’s magnifi- 
cent King's Library. And Sydney 
Smirke'5 round reading room 
might continue to fulfil its destiny 

— with or without a linking tunnel 

- as a noble home for early works 
in the humanities. 

Such a compromise would 
make the best of the unhappy 
situation created by the rejection 
of Professor Colin Si John 
Wilson’s previous scheme — de- 
signed in conjunction with Sir 
Leslie Martin — for a new British 
Library in Bloomsbury in front of 
the British Museum.

‘Thatcher’s children’ 

From Mr Paul Carroll . 

Sir. Having reached the ripe old 
age of 29 1 do not qualify as one of 
“Thatcher's children". But when 
personal differences drove me and 
my parents apart and myself on to 
the streets of London (aged 1 7) to 
witness the Dickensian under- 
world that thrives there my apathy 
set in. despite an intense interest 
in politics rince junior school age. 

This sentiment has only been 
reinforced over the years, having 
written to some most eminent 
politicians (on both sides of the 
House), sending material (often 
pictures) with SAFs and request 
for their return, often never to get 
even an acknowledgement. 

But my most exasperating 
experience came after foe reading 
of a feature about Britain's many 
under-nourished children 
prompted me to write to a leading 
8nti-poverty pressure group, 
explaining how one could feed 
well a family of four thrice daily, 
using several simple recipes, for 
no more than £28 per week. 

1 was told that “the publication 
of such material would result in 
every Tory back-bencher in the 
Commons waving it as evidence 
that supplementary benefits were 
ample and need not be increased" 
and. therefore, it could not be 
made use of. - 

Yours apathetically.

Forbidden fruits 

From Dr M. S. Davies 
Sir. Still on the subject of weeds 
and verges (Mr Holland, Septem- 
ber 2). while walking the length of 
Hadrian's Wall from Newcastle to 
Carlisle at this time of year two 
years ago. I was struck by the large 
number of huge mushrooms along 
the verges of the Military Way (the 
B6318). 

I like to imagine that these are 
the defiant progeny of past deli- 
cacies enjoyed by the centurions 
on this bleak northern border of 
the Roman Empire, having sur- 
vived the ages and now thriving 


on a 20ih century diet- of tar 
chippings. hardcore, regular win- 
ter “gritting" and cigarette ends 
and all (he other debris hurled 
from passing vehicles. 

As to whether they are still a 
delicacy. I doubt whether anyone 
knows, for it is too hazardous to 
stop and pick them as the traffic 
hurtles along the narrow Roman 
road as it stretches away straight 
into the distance. 

Yours faithfully.

EEC-Japan trade 

Front Lord Stoddart of Swindon 
Sir. Mr Brinkhofst's reply 
(September 1) to James, Bourlet 
(August 1 1) concerning trade with 
Japan is typical of the overbearing 
arrogance we have come to expect 
from apparatchiks of foe Com- 
mon Market. 

In 1985 foe UK's deficit in 
manufactures with the EEC ap- 
proached foe frightening figure of 
£9.000 million, many times 
greater than the deficit with Japan 
or with any other country for that 
matter. Furthermore, the restric- 
tive trade policies of the European 
Community not only obstruct the 
trading position of Britain but in 
some respects also encourages the 
manufacture of certain goods 
outside this country with con- 
sequent damage to employment 
here. 

For Mr Brinkhorsi's informa- 
tion i visited Japan in 1985 with 
the House of Lords Select 
Committee on Overseas Trade 


and I must tell him that the whole 
of our delegation was, first of all, 
impressed by the courtesy and 
professionalism of the ambas- 
sador and his staff We were also 
impressed by their knowledge and 
understanding of Japan, its people 
and institutions and, above all, by 
their commercial expertise in 
relation to Japanese business and 
foe potential fen- exploiting and 
penetrating the Japanese market 
Given foe choice (which I 
unfortunately no longer have) I 
would prefer to trust the British 
Embassy in Japan to look after the 
UK's trading interest than Mr 
Brinkhorst and bis delegation and 
that also goes for our trading 
interests elsewhere in the world, 
the management of which. Mr 
Brinkhorst is proud to boast, has 
been wrested from Britain by the 
EEC. My guess is that so would a 
majority of British people.

on television 

From Dr H. Hillman 
Sir. There has been much dis- 
cussion about the extent of vi- 
olence seen in television 
programmes, and its possible ef- 
fect on the crime rate. However, I 
would like to express a wider 
concern, which may well be shared 
by other readers. 

I strongly object to the large 
number of programmes on mur- 
der. crime, prisons, police and 
fraud — even when no violence is 
seen. I regard many of these 
programmes as creating the feeling 
among the public that murder, 
crime and fraud are major and 
acceptable pursuits of a substan- 
tial proportion of the population. 

In my view, they are not, and 
the massive output by what is 
inevitably one of ute most influen- 
tial segments of our education 
system gives the impression that 
they are. Can nothing be done to 
reverse this unwholesome trend?

Douglas-Home trust 

From the Patrons and Trustees of 
the Charles Douglas-Home 
Memorial Trust 

Sir. The tragic death of Charles 
Douglas-Home at the height of his 
powers deprived journalism of 
one of its most energetic and vital 
talents. As Ediior.of The Times he 
was a help and support to young 
journalists and a passionate de- 
fender of free speech and free 
opinion. 

He went out ofhis way to ensure 
that widely differing views were 
expressed in the columns of The 
Times so that the political debate 
was enriched and the foundations 
of democracy strengthened. 

To commemorate the life of this 
remarkable man and to perpetuate 
his work a memorial trust is being 
founded with the aim of uphold- 
ing a concern for truth, accuracy, 
and open discussion. Its purpose 
to begin with will be to provide an 
annual scholarship for a writer, 
researcher or joumalisL 
It is planned to advertise for 
applicants, with a specific subject 
or area of research being proposed. 
An independent body of judges 
will make recommendations from 
applications received, and The 
Times, whose Editor will be an ex- 
officio trustee, intends to publish 
excerpts from work undertaken. 

We hope this trust will be a 
lasting memorial to Charles Doug- 
las-Home and that his friends, 
colleagues and admirers will lend 
it their support Those wishing to 
contribute may do so by writing to 
the secretary to the trust Barbara

Listing of houses 

From Mr Peter <7. Elphick 
Sir. Recently the Department of 
the Environment informed me 
that my house had been included 
in the statutory list of buildings of 
special architectural or historic 
interest and that the listing had 
already taken legal effect The 
inference in the department’s 
letter was that I had no right of 
appeal. 

I do not know who the inspector 
was. but I do know that in the 
North-east (and. I understand, 
nationally) these inspectors are 
recommending listing of almost 
anything which looks as if ft had 
been built before the end of the 
1 9th century. Certainly my house 
is not worth listing, and. I have 
told the department why. 

However, when the Housing 
and Planning Bill was debated in 
the House of Lords on July 30. 
1986. Lord Elton replied to the 
question of appeals against listing 
raised by Viscount Ridley, and he 
said: 

My noble friend . . . rightly said that 
Such an appeal exists. It is true that it 
is not generally known. I was 
advised that this was the case when 1 
took office and I then arranged that 
everyone whose house was sub- 
sequently listed should be advised 
that iTho felt it was wrongly listed he 
had but to send his reasons to my 
right honourable friend to have it 
reviewed and. if appropritc. struck 
off the list .. . 

Anyone who feels aggrieved 
should appeal by writing to the 
Department of the Environment, 
Room 18, Lambeth Bridge House.

ON THIS DAY 


SEPTEMBER 15 1806 

The “great pleasure" proclaimed 
in this leading article on the 
capture of Buenos Avres Oft June 
27 was short lived: it uw retaken 
by the Spaniards in August. In 
July the following year General 
Whitelocke, in command of 8,000 
troops, failed to regain the town, 
lost 2,500 men in the attempt, and 
had to suffer a humiliating 
surrender. On his return to 
England Whitelocke uas court- 
martialed, found guilty and 
cashiered. The Cepe of Good Hope 
references are to the capture by 
the British of that colony m 

January 1806 


[CAPTURE OF BUENOS 
AYRES.] 

It is with great pleasure that we 
lay before our readers the Gazette 
Extraordinary of Saturday last, 
which announces the surrender of 
Buenos Ayres to the British arms. 
This conquest is highly important 
from its intrinsic value, but still 
more so from the circ ums t anc es 
which attended it, and from the 
very critical time in which it is 
made known to the British public 
and to Europe. There can hardly be 
a doubt that the whole colony of La 
Plata will share the Bame late as 
Buenos Ayres; and from the flatter- 
ing hopes held out to the inhabit- 
ants in the proclamation of 
General Beresford, they will see 
that it is their true interest to 
become a colony of the British 
empire. 

The cimunstances which at- 
tended this success, are in the 
highest degree honourable to the 
British name, and to the character 
of our brave army. Here, as at the 
Cape of Good Hope, the enemy 
abandoned their excellent posi- 
tions, when they perceived the 
British troops advancing resolutely 
to the charge. 

The capture of the Cape of Good 
Hope, however, was effected by an 
expedition evidently adequate to 
the object The capture of Buenos 
Ayres, on the other hand, was 
mwfa by a very inferior force, 
relying merely on its courage. The 
whole body of British troops, 
marines, and sailors, that landed 
did not amount to 1700 men. The 
Spaniards, to the number of 2000, 
according to General 

BERESFORD, (or 4000, as magni- 
fied by Sir HOME POPHAM) 
were strongly posted on heights, 
and the only mode of approaching 
them was through a morass. The 
enemy also had, as in the battle of 
Maida, a fell knowledge of the 
inferiority of the force that was 
attacking them- General 

BERESFORD states “that the 
enemy, from his position, could 
have counted every man he had." 
Notwithstanding all those advan- 
tages, they would not venture to 
await the attack of the British 
troops, and abandoned the impor- 
tant city of Buenos Ayres to an 
inferior army. •' 

The country stands now on a 
much prouder footing than it has 
done rince the Negotiation with 
France commenced. In Calabria, 
the excellence and superiority of! 
the British troops have been shewn 
to the enemy and to all Europe. By 
our success in La Mata, where a 
small British detachment has tak- 
en one of the greatest and richest of 
the Spanish colonies, BUONA- 
PARTE must be convinced that 
nothing but a speedy peace can 
prevent the whole of Spanish 
America from being wrested from 
his influence, and placed for ever 
under the protection of the British 
Empire. What region of the habit- 
able world could he then look to for 
“ships, colonies, and commerce?" 
There is an other circumstance 
attending this succ es s, which 
distinguishes our Army as much 
for its generosity, as foT its superior 
bravery and discipline. While the 
French armies plunder and ruin 
every country (hostile, friendly, or 
neutral) which they set their feet 
upon, the British army gives up, 
even to its enemies, that wealth 
which the laws of war had made its 
own . . . Such unexampled gener- 
osity and moderation will doubt- 
less make the inhabitants of the 
Spanish colonies wish to be con- 
nected with Great Britain. By such 
an union we should have a never- 
failing market for our commod- 
ities, and our enemies would be for 
ever deprived of the power of, 
adding the resources of those rich 
countries to their other means of 
annoying us. 


In the belfry? 

From Mrs Josephine de Goris 
Sir, Mr Hany Porter (September 
10) asks which species of owl 
(stuffed) would be most effective 
in deterring bats from bis church, 
and where it should be placed. 

The late vicar of St Margaret's 
Church. Binsey. the Reverend 
Arnold MaJlinson, attempted this 
remedy in 1951, when the organist 
found she was playing white notes 
on the harmonium thinking they 
were black such was the depth of 
bat droppings. But there were 
other problems: people came regu- 
larly to say that there was an owl 
trapped in the church, and once 
one was found perched on the 
pulpit, as though preaching a 
sermon. 

After that it was nailed down to 
the top of the newel post on the 
comer of foe vestry screen, high 
up at the back of the church where 
it would not distract the congrega- 
tion.

From Mr. D. LawrenceJones 
Sir, Mr Potter will have to be 
careful about stuffed owls. We too 
are troubled by bats: some years 
ago. we obtained and set up a 
stuffed owl but it appeared to be 
so similar to our dear Rector of the 
time {de mortuis) that we had to 
withdraw iL The bats remain.

By any measure the Roman Catholic 
Church's achievement in creating a na- 
tional network of Catholic schools is a 
remarkable one, represeminga vast invest- 
ment in effort and money. 

But it has long been a matter of 
argument, with conflicting evidence, 
i whether the investment was justified by 
results. Similar questions are also some- 
times asked about the Church of England's 
own network of church schools, with 
similarly uncertain answers. 

Research by such bodies as the Culhara 
College Institute (for Church Related 
Education) has thrown some new light on 
these mysteries. It is beginning to emerge, 
for instance, that the Church of England 
system is less successful than the Catholic 
one. 

One study has even suggested that a 
typical Church of England school’s impact 
on a typical pupil produces a more 
negative attitude towards Christianity 
than an ordinary state schopL Were this 
true, the Church of England would 
presumably improve its overall standing 
among the younger generation just by 
closing its schools or transferring them to 
the state sector. 

The same study found that Catholic 
schools, on the other hand, h ad a 
significantly favourable effect on pupil 
attitudes towards Christianity. 

It is not dear what this difference 
between the two systems means; and it 
may not necessarily mean that there is 
anything wrong with schools in the Church 
of England system. If selection and entry 
criteria are different, as they seem to be, 
and if the motives of parents for sending 
their children To such schools are different 
too. as they may be, then it is possible they 
are failing for other reasons. 

It is perhaps the case that a school which 
produces a positive attitude to Christianity 
in pupils from religiously committed 
homes will at the same time, and by the 
same means, produce a negative attitude 
in pupils from religiously indifferent 
homes. 

Nothing much appears to be known 
about parental motivation, but common 
observation suggests that a Church of 
England school is often regarded by 
parents as more desirable than a state 
school for reason which have tittle to do 
with religion, more to do with class. 


In the C&ihohc case, it may well be the 
other way round. In other words parents 
want their children in Church of England 
schools to give them a better chance mthis 
world; parents warn them in Caiholic 
a*® 01 * l °®* e a better chance in the 
rpL And these reasons feed through to 
the children themselves, and influence the 
way they react. 

The Cutham Institute has now pub- 
lished further research which may throw 
another gleam of light on it. With 
cooperation from the Caiholic system - 
Culham is an Anglican foundation - Dr 
Leslie Francis has investigated the dif- 

fnnMvo hnTirmi— -• -W ~ r ■« 


Pupils without that contact, exposed in 
other words to Catholicism through school 
alone, tend to be unfrvouiablly disposed 
towards it. That throws tight also on the 
Church of England school system's less 
satisfactory performance, for it can be

TELEVISION: weekend programmes and interview 

No WP1V is a company worth more than £100 

vva J million, after its recent Stock Exchange 

tO PTiJOlr flotation. It is also the ITV company with the 
tv/ V/l aVJV biggest problems, not least of which is the 
fU a oUpll retention of its franchise in two years’ time. One 
tllw MiCU man who will determine the soundness of new

No doubt Russell Hart}- is a 
charmer to meet But, as an 
Interviewer, there is something 
feintly grotesque in the way he 
pads off abroad to lure the 
lives Out of the dlstingnSsbed 
(it is a sobering thought that to 
date the only film of Sir 
Harold Acton is in conversa- 
tion with the former Gfo- 
gleswfck schoolteacher). 

Squatting in their shade and 
squeezing a few pips of wis- 
dom, . perhaps he hopes to 
swell into another Boswell or 
Freeman. $o far the only thing 
that has swollen is his chin, 
which last night drooped like 
wet potty on to his T-shirt as 
he sat talking to Dirk Bogarde 
at his home in Provence. 

Playing Tattoo u> Bogarde's 
Aschenbach, Harty asked a 
number of obliquely prurient 
questions in Above the Title 
(Yorkshire) of which “Do you 
think yoa’re handsome?” was 
the first. “Let’s talk about the 
monstrosity", be urged ' as 
Bogarde described how Jody 
Garland was the greatest 
After flailing embarrassingly 
around the subject of the 
actor’s private life, Harty 
made one final stab at/getting 
under the shell “No one's ever

i IvdlT m interview hi the first place.

An <]».. traps”, be warned of interaew-

, where they are."

riveting to watch Bogarde 
■ r : «?• stalk about the false bamboo. 

1 7 '-’ *• Harty's undeniable strength is 
‘ '■ ■: the contrast he offers witb his 

• :v- subjects. Looking fncrahi- 

w- lonsly at him after a particn- 
• larly impertinent question, 

' there is always a moment 

- when they are on the verge of 

• - crashing off rudely into the 

undergrowth (cf. Grace 

- •?: Jones). If he tau kept his 
v; : distance it is because they 

usually decide to help him out 
; . ;r of his own bole. In doing so, 

. ‘V they reveal something new 
- ... •- - about themselves. 

. . : .. With his deep breaths, his -

“V measure of the man grinning

rasped at one point with that

Although David Elstein claims to 
have taken up his appointment with 
no illusions, he was aghast when they 
told him that Return to Eden, .the 
supremely schlocky and disgraceful ly 
popular Australian soap opera which 
has been the cornerstone of Thames’s 
contribution to the- ITV- summer 
schedule, might run to a sequeL 
“They said 'it doesn't entT. I them 
them it had to end. even if we had to 
make up the ending ourselves”, he 
says. 

Until he took control of Thames’s 
programmes this spring. Bslein's 
slender, intellectual hands were un- 
touched by schlock., popular or 
otherwise. He is in . his early forties 
and comes from the journalistic side 
of television, rather than the province 
of showbusiness- The . immediate 
impact of his style ‘showed in 
Thames's coverage of the World 
Chess Championship, complete with 
repeats for schoolchildren and a 
reciprocal deal with the Soviet 
Union. He got a kick out of giving 
that a fast OK. 

Elstein has spent a total of 14 years 
working for the company he now 
heads, first on The World at War, 
Jeremy Isaacs’s series which endures 
as a model of compulsive docu- 
mentary. and then as the editor of 
This Week. He quit in 1983, pushed 
by - lack of sympathy with Bryan 
Cowgilfs regime and palled by the 
prospect of producing independently 
for the new Channel 4- His indepen- 
dent companies. Brook Productions 
and Primetime Television, are ad- 
mired for their profitability as well as 
the quality of output such as <4 Week 
in Politics and The. Writing on the 
Wall. 

Returning to Thames is obviously 
no return to Eden. “Because 1 know 
everything that there is to know about 
the company. 1 come- with no 
illusions. It would be nice somehow 
to remotivate and give some new 
impetus to people who have been, 
here for some time. I think in any 
or^nization the arteries get dogged 
by age-old disputes — it's just so 
different from working on a green- ■ 
fidd site. Nothing gets forgotten, on -. 
the management side or on the union 

Dance MM

Covent Garden llw 


side, but ii would be very much more 
frustrating if 1 hadn't works! here. At 
least I know what can happen, and I 
don’t try things I know won’t work." 

The first changes designs! to equip 
the company to retain its franchise 
are exactly what were expected of a 
director undoubtedly chosen for his 
ability to impress the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority. The existing 
current affairs series. TV Eye, has 
been scrapped and has been replaced 
by the re-invented This Week, headed 
by Roger Bolton, a former Panorama 
editor with a radical profile as high as 
that of his new boss. Jonathan 
Dimbleby. a former colleague at 
Thames, returns to make a series of 
investigative documentaries. In addi- 
tion, there are plans for a new series 
on the City and on the arts and 
entenainment in London, in almost 
slavish response to criticisms in the 
IBA’s mid-term review. These 
. changes should introduce a strand of 
harc&dged. authoritative current-af- 
fairs programming into the company 
in time for the 1 988 franchise review. 

There has been a perceptible 
decline in the quality of Thames 
programmes .since the golden age of 
the mid-Severnies, when programmes 
like The Naked Civil Servant, Edward 
and Mrs Simpson and Minder won 
both audiences and awards. How- 
ever. the major threat to the company 
. has arisen from what the managing 
director. Richard Dunn, describes as 
a “change in the ecology of 
broadcasting” 

“Both ITV companies In London 
will be faced with an unique challenge 
at the next franchise round", Elstein 
explains. “There are now companies 
like Carhon [who recently made an 
unsuccessful bid for Thames] which 
can go to the IBA and say t we can do 
everything the existing companies 
can do at two-thirds the cost, without 
breaching any national union agree- 
ment'. We have got to adjust to that 
reality, forget about custom and 
practice and how-it’ s~al ways^been- 
done, change our way of working so 
we can be more cost-effective. If we 
don't do that -we will be at risk, and 
deservedly so." ..

A double welcome is due at 

Covent Garden, firstly to Pe~ 

ter Wright's and Gafina 

Samsova’s handsome produo- 

lion of Swan Lake which 

Sadler s Wells Royal Ballet is 

showing as part of its season ai 

the Royal Opera House. Pre- 

miered in 1981. the produo 

tion retains ail its coherence 

and dramatic logic: Philip 

Prowse’ s Victorian-Gothic de- X v 

sign looks sombrely grandiose 

op the Coveni Garden stage 

and the company is dancing 

splendidly. Longer acquaint- ^ PSCyfe' 
ance with some of Wright’S 
own choreography: notably 
the Act I waltz and the 

Neopolftan quartet, makes it fl 1 - 'll 

appear tiresomeiy fussy and 

unmusical, but ihe production 

as a the whole remains a 

triumph with few to rival- iL . 

The second welcome is for Mr 
David Ashmole. who left. the 
company in 1984 after many. 
years as its leading man to join . 
the Australian Ballet. He is 
back for a brief guest season, nr JBjT

Close of the Proms 

















BBCSO/Leppard 
Albert Hall/BBCtv/ 
Radio 3 


.As far as flag-waving is con- 
cemed, the Italian tricolour 
did not do too badly for itself 
| in this veal's Proms. With 
1 Verdi and Monteverdi. Berio 
and Dallapiccola enjoying 
prominent positions, the idea 
of Puccini letting his hair 
down seemed a not unreason- 
able apotheosis. The first half 
of the Last Night was his 
alone. 

Every Union Jack in the 
house was still for the sleepy, 
luxurious start to the Preludio 
sinfoniiv. an early and beauti- 
fully orchestrated student 
piece which tuned the ear to a 
nicety for the Messa di gloria. 
Surprisingly, it was a perfor- 
mance which look its sacred 
format rather more seriously 
than the work does itself It 
w'ould be difficult to mask the 
flamboyance of the piece: the 
boisterous Gloria with its “Tu 
solus Dominus” strafed by 
trombones; the irate trumpet- 
ing in the Sanctus before a 
Hosanna which only momen- 
tarily recalls itself to piety. But 
Raymond Leppard encou- 
raged sobriety and modera- 
tion from the BBC Symphony 
Orchestra and Chorus and the 
very English soloists. David 
RendaJI. David Wilson-John- 


son and Matthew Best. 

Even after the interval 
Leppard played along his 
audience discreetly and cau- 
tiously. The Scapino Over- 
ture. Walton at his most 
caustically witty, certainly got 
every section of the orchestra 
going, and Bax’s Mediterra- 
nean gpnily started the action 
in the arena, A sleazy opening, 
somewhat reminiscent of ’’! 
Do Love to be Beside the 
Seaside”, was abruptly trans- 
ported by castanets to the 
Costa del Sol. and the 
Frontmens swayed like a wave 
of the sea. 

As balloons rose and 
streamers felL Britten’s Soi- 
rees musicalcs cued in the 
soloists among the audience, 
from party trumpeters to tin- 
whistlers; and then the hush. 
The first-horn verse of “Land 
of Hope and Glory” passed in 
reverential silence: the rest, 
conducted rather like a Te 
Deum in Trinity, rose never- 
theless lustier and mightier 
yeL Mr Leppard, with the 
nostalgia of a true expatriate, 
genteelly reminded his audi- 
ence that there was no one like 
them in the wide world, 
nothing quite like the Third 
Programme, and, with an 
exhortation to “Look after the 
BBC, will you”, graciously 
pointed his baton towards 
“Rule Britannia” and “Home, 
Sweet Home”.

Elstein looks more like a merchant 
banker than a television executive, 
and his analysis of the way in which 
die structure of independent tele- 
vision works against the cost-effec- 
tiveness of individual companies is 
fluent. His independent days have 
taught him an acute commercial 
sense. “As an independent I learnt 
what life is like in the real world. If 
anyone here wants to know how to 
make programmes with the lowest 
cost and the highest quality, they can 
look at The Writing on the Wall, 
which was the most economical series 
to make. 

“1 also got a sense of the overseas 
market I spent a lot of time getting to 
know the main players. Euston Films 

{ the Thames subsidiary which made 
[Under and the forthcoming series of 
John Mortimer’s Paradise Postponed] 
is the easiest part of the company to 
turn in that direction, but there is no 
reason why our other productions 
should- not be just as market- 
orientated." 

It will not be easy to streamline and 
inspire Thames, the largest ITV 
company in terms of manpower, with 
more than 2,500 employees. Elstein 
anticipates that about a third of his 
current-affairs team will change un- 
der Roger Bolton, and a new comput- 
erized newsroom will also help. 
However, in the fet years before 
Channel 4. when an ITV franchise 
could justly be called a licence to print

By the time Run (Joseph 
Simmons) and his partner 
DMC (Daryl McDaniels) had 
both reached the stage, it was 
pointless to clap. The audi- 
ence had come well prepared 
with whistles and hooters; the 
screeching clamour reminded 
me of old footage of the 
Beaties, when the sound of the 
band is frequently drowned by 
a cacophany of screams. And 
with their DJ Jam Master Jay 
(Jason Mizell) in tow. Run 
DMC are the Beatles (ot the

money, the major broadcasting 
unions negotiated generous agree- 
ments. and the average wage in the 
company is now £18,600 per annum, 
with around 100 employees in the 
£30.0QQ-plus bracket. Thames is not 
in the extreme position of London 
Weekend, 1TN and TV-AM. all of 
whom have to pay their staff hand- 
somely for world ng unsocial hours, 
but it is still an expensive company to 
run. 

One solution which Elstein refuses 
to consider is commissioning cheap 
programmes from independents. 
This mushroom-crop of small com- 
panies, many of whom have a 
dawning suspicion that Channel 4 
cannot keep them all in business, 
naturally looked to Elstein as a 
champion, a role he instantly de- 
clined. “I’m hungry for ideas”, he 
says, “and Tending scripts and pro- 
posals takes up a lot of my time, but 
the stereotype 1 have in the trade 
press as the saviour of the indepen- 
dents is wrong. I think there has been 
a misunderstanding; ! am not going 
to put Thames's money into funding 
independent programmes at the ex- 
pense of our own productions." 

Informed opinion is presently con- 
fident that, with David Elstein at the i 
helm. Thames will retain its franchise ! 
and regain some of its reputation for ' 
quality programmes.

biggest thing that this rel-

There is a competitive de-

which requires its prac-

they are to get anywhere at all.

Every Prom season contains 
its ordinary concerts, but it is 
hard to find many that filled 
that category in this one. 
Indeed, if anything, the festi- 
val suffered from its own 
diversity. But it is churlish to 
complain in the face of the 
riches we have been given 
over the past two months. On 
this penultimate night we 
were, as tradition dictates, 
fully involved with the noble 
exhortations of Beethoven’s 
Ninth Symphony. 

Richard Morrison reported 
last week on the impact that 
this same team, consisting of 
the London Philharmonic Or- 
chestra. the BBC Singers, the 
Chorus of Welsh National 
Opera. London Voices, and a 
starry line-up of soloists, all 
under the direction of Sir 
Georg Solti, were making with 
this work in Frankfurt. And, 
when the television lights 
came up on the choir in the 
finale, the sound that came 
from them was indeed utterly 
thrilling 

rhythm track records play 
without an excess of flashy 
jumps, a sort of Charlie Watts 
in the Grandmaster stakes, 
leaving the coast clear for Run 
and DMC to holler their 
tuneless declamations in fine, 
aggressive style. 

In their black tops and black 
hats, the two vocalists, 
alternating sentences and 
words in rapid bursts, pro- 
claimed their own unques- 
tionable pre-eminence in 
numbers such as “King of 
Rock” and “Peter Piper”. 

The great strength of the 
performance was its direct- 
ness. Freed from any melodic 


The soloists made quite an 
impact too. with Jessye Nor- 
man. forthright as ever, taking 
the first quartet by storm, 
quickening the pace and 
sharpening the rhythm. Her 
top note near the end, needless 
to say, was glorious, frill- 
throated. accurately pitched 
and dynamically well con- 
trolled. Hans Sotin. the bass, 
matched her for sheer res- 
onance, while Sarah Walker 
(mezzo) and Reiner Goldberg 
(tenor) took the inner parts 
with a distinction rather less 
assertive. 

Yet the contribution of 
individuals inevitably took 
second place to Sir Georg's 
masterly shaping of the whole. 
The urgency ofnis beat in the 
first movement was not such 
as to destroy its sheer immen- 
sity. white the slow move- 
ment, the key to a gratifying 
performance, was most beau- 
tifully sculpted, with Solti 
maintaining his slow, natural 
tempo to its end And the 
Scherzo's relentlessness was 
meat and drink to such a 
conductor. By and large, too, 
the orchestra were on superb 
form. 

Stephen Pettitt 

or harmonic distractions, the 
performers slugged across 
with unfettered power their 
message of pride and a good 
dance beat. Although they 
.played down their much- 
vaunted alliance with heavy 
rock, they consistently gen- 
erated the son of primitive 
excitement that used to be the 
norm at early rock concerts. 
Hip-hop has the kind of 
arrogance, crass innocence 
and uncaring vitality that 
urban rock ’n' roll took as its 
starting point. Run DMC are 
the worthy, if unlikely, inher- 
itors of those raw traditions.

policy himself, 10 be more 
friendly to the Liberals and to 
stress the SOF eagerness for 
arms control as well as its 
eagerness to maintain a Brit- 
ish deterrent. 

Mr Cartwright warned 
delegates that he would not 
relish going into the election 
saying that the Alliance would 
decide on what to do about 
replacing Polaris after it was 
over. The Tories, be said, 
would play the defence card 
and play it hard. 

After the debate Mr Cart- 
wright said that the SDP 
leadership would go on nego- 
tiating with the Liberals with- 
out their hands being tied. 
“By early next year we must be 
! in position to start giving 
broad indications. It won't be 
easy' 

Last night Mr Michael 
Meadowcroft, MP for Leeds 
West told a fringe meeting: 
“Those of us who have argued 
a long time for there to be a 
strengthening of European 
links have always argued from 
the point of view that Europe 
ought to be powerful and 
strong enough and conscious 
of its own strength sufficiently 
to be able to withstand pres- 
sure from the United States 
and the Soviet Union and not 
to be in hock to them. 

“I have never ever con- 
ceived of the possibility of that 
being based on a nuclear 
capability. It would seem to 
me madness to establish a 
third major superpower with a 
capability of using nuclear 
weapons. It would be a totally 
retrograde step.” 

• Mr Steel and Dr Owen have 
begun work on drawing up a 
team of joint Alliance spokes- 
men, to be completed by 
Christmas. 

The team, which win in- 
evitably be dubbed an Alli- 
ance shadow cabinet, will 
include SDP and Liberal fig- 
ures presently outside Par- 
liament, such as Mrs Shirley 
Williams and Mr Bin Rodgers, 
Mr Richard Holmes, Mr 
Steel's key adviser, and Mr 
Alan Watson, a former Liberal 
president 

The formation of the team 
will help to defuse claims that 
Dr Owen's SDP is a one-man 
band.

A £4 million appeal to restore the 
12th century Ely Cathedral in 
Cambridgeshire will be launched in 
London on Wednesday, with the 
Duke of Edinburgh as patron. The' 
planned repairs will be the first 
major renovation for more than a 
century. 

Ely Cathedral, the “Ship of the 
Fens”, is regarded as one of the 
glories of English ecclesiastical 
architecture, hot water, weather and 
the death watch beetle are taking 
their tolL 

The trustees say that £4 million is 
the minimum needed for basic re- 
pairs. Abont £800,000 is needed for 
work on the knave roof and the 
Octagon tower. Repairs to the Lady 
Chapel and the north and south 
Ely Cathedral, whose stone walls are badly buckled (Photographs: Chris Harris) knave aisles will require £1 


Tensions 
remain 
over 
Daniloff 

Continued frompage 1 
The strain of the detention 
and the continuing threat of a 
trial - he has to report by 
pboue to his KGB interro- 
gators every weekday — came 
out sharply at one point when 
Mr Daniloff, aged 52. was 
answering questions about 
charges laid by Toss. the 
Soviet news agency, that he 
had signed a document agree- 
ing to the charges laid against 

him 

“I have always said that I 
was under no instruction from 
any government agency and 
that all my actions were taken 
on my own initiative or at the 
request of my magazine, and 
teat, please believe me, is 
God's foil truth,” said Mr 
DanflofE who was flanked by 
his wife Ruth, 51, and an 
executive of US News A World 
Report* the magazine be has 
represented here for 5!A years. 

Many of the reporters 
crowding into the US Depart- 
ment of Commerce building 
in centra] Moscow asked 
about an attack by Tass— the 
most serious of its kind since 
Stalin's era — over their 
reporting from inside the So- 
viet Union. 

“I dug deeply and because I 
did that, I became a little more 
obvious than people who 
might just rewrite TassT Mr 
Daniloff told them. “The 
in tidious pan is that the more 
you dig, the more you draw 
suspicion on yourself” 

Dressed in a burgundy 
jacket and wearing tinted 
spectacles against the glare of 
television lights, Mr Daniloff 

— who had spent his second 
night inside the US Embassy 

— gave bis first accounts of 
events leading to his arrest. He 
was asked whether he now bad 
second thoughts about accept- 
ing the package from Misha, a 
Soviet teacher friend. 

“Once you have been sand- 
bagged by eight men on a 
street, totally unsuspecting, 
put into a van, your hands 
pinned behind your back, in 
handcuffs, of course you won- 
der — why the heft did 1 do 
that?” he replied. “But the feet 
of the matter is, I knew this 
man Misha for several years. 
He is a very charming fellow; 
our relationship grew over a 
period of time. I trusted him.”

Unchanged, but

The femous Yorkshire spa. 
sedately golden in an autumn 
sun, this weekend received 


The Observer the following 
morning. It had been in that 
paper for the preceding sev- 
sun, this wecMrmi Sal! weeks in ibe form of a 

tlwanniHl conference^ foe cojumn. It would be 

Social Democrat ^ 

Memory, prompted JSfchetold me. in the form 

of a daily commentary on the 
SDP conference. 

This last news meant that, 
as in the old Classics Illus- 
trated comics of my own 
childhood, a standtod work 
of literature was to be made 
available to foe masses m an 

accessible form. . 

Change was rcprcsenieo m 
the same carriage by Mr Roy 
Jenkins* wife who. in my 
absence, had become Dame 
Jennifer Jenkins and, as 1 first 
understood, Mr Cntchley, 
had been made chairman of 
the National Front 
Some of us had long be- 
lieved that all that party 
needed, to break the mould of 
British politics, was a respect- 
able-seeming leader. But it 
turned out to have been a 
mishearing on my pan. What 
she had become apparently 
was chairman of foe National 
Trust. 

At dusk we reached Harro- 
gate, and a Smollett-like 
scene consisting of such 
phenomena as BBC serving 
wenches being goosed ter 
Corporation executives. The 
town's many excellent res* 
tauranls were preparing to 
open their doors, since foe 
SDP is the eating party or it is 
nothing. 

A fringe meeting on de- 
fence was being addressed, 
not just by Dr David Owen, 
but by a French Socialist, 
speaking in his native lan- 
guage — Dr Owen having 
recently tried to reach some 
agreement with the French 
about nudear policy. 

Most of the audience was 
undoubtedly there under the 
impression that be was the 
town's greatest chef explain- 
ing a particularly long menu. 
His mentions of Le Bombe 
were assumed to be ref- 
erences to Le Bombe 
Surprise. 

Only when the interpreter 
got going, did the audience 
realise that the- man was not a 
chef at all but a complete 
imposter who had been talk- 
ing about defence all along, 
Interest collapsed.

previously most implausible 
cast of characters to descend 
cm the resort were those ot 
Tobias Smollett's Expedition 
of Humphry Clinker on their 
— across the north of 
mu. 

wJbre catching the tram, a 
search of the shelves for an 
edition of that masterpiece 
confirmed that this was m- 
deedsa „ _ . 

“The lodgers of each inn, 
said Smollett, “form a dis- 
tinct society, that eat to- 
gether; and there is a 
co mm odious public room, 
where they breakfast in 
Disabffle~from 8 o'clock till 
II. as they chance or choose 
to come in. Here also they 
drink tea in the afternoon, 
and play at cards or dance in 
the evening.” 

Distinct societies that eat 
together! Commodious 
rooms! Breakfast in DisabiBe 
from 8 o'clock till II! After- 
noon tea! Dancing in the 
evening! That is the life 
which some of us feel that the 
SDFs Mr Roy Jenkins was 
bom to lead. 

Anyone, such as myself, 
who had only just got back to 
this country, having been 
abroad for a few years, cut off 
from direct contact with Brit- 
ish public life would have 
found this weekend that 
much had changed and much 
had remained the same some 
of us were fortunate to board 
on Saturday a carriage at 
Euston which contained 
examples of both change and 
continuity. 

Seated in it, for example; 
was Mr Julian Cntchley, the 
Conservative Member for 
Aldershot to whom the anti- 
Thatcher Resistance had 
given the task, when last I 
was in England, of writing the 
same article over and over 
again foil of impertinences 
about the Prime Minister and 
the uncouthness of the mod- 
ern Conservative Party. A 
brave man, then. 

And here he was, after all 
these years of the Occupa- 
tion, still writing the same 
article. It was to appear in

Chaffinches and blue tits are 
feeding on the berries of 
whitebeam . trees. The chaf- 
finches iry to drive the tits away, 
but they quickly return, hanging 
upside down on the crimson 
bunches. Great crested grebe 
families still swim together on 
lakes; the young are now as large 
as the adults, but are much 
whiter round the bead. Thin- 
necked young pheasants lurk in 
the grass, while their mother will 
fly noisily away, they prefer to 
run. 

Lapwings are gathering in 
large flocks. Green sandpipers 
from the continent feed at the 
edge of small marshy pools; 
when flushed they towrr into the 
sky with a flash of black and 
white and disappear, but often 
come back to the same pool 
later. 

Some yellow flowers of late 
summer are often found dose to 
each other: the great mullein, 
crumbling patches of St John's 
wort, Oxford ragwort, and toad- 
flax with its snapdragon-like 
blooms. Water mint has tall, 
sweet-smelliug purple flowers. 
Harebells are still common in 
dry, grassy places. 

On the hedges, the creamy- 
green flowers of traveller’s joy 
me turning into wiry, fluffy 
seeds. The first bronze-coloured 
leaves are felling from the 
beeches.

“ ■■ 


Back in the middle of April 
something terrible happened 
Ip the American firawriai . 
Bemlorts." Aad they have not 
recovered. 

j The December T-bond, 
vfhich peaked at nearly 104 in 
* -April, stood ntJBttie more 
96 in the second week of 


talks amid tight security and 
threats of a walkout by coun- 
tries wanting to unseat Sooth 
Africa. 

The week-long talks, de- 
scribed as the most important 
global trade talks in 40 years, 
will determine whether, or not 
the ministers of the General 
Agreement on Tariffs and 
Trade (Gan) embark on long 
negotiations to halt the slide 
towards ■ protectionism by 
Opening up markets in agri- 
culture, services, and invest- 
ments in other areas. 

Mr Paul Channon, the Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, is expected to play a 
crucial role in the talks as the 
“honest power broker” who 
win seek to forge a com- 
promise in his capacity as 
chairman of the European 
Economic Community min - 
isters council. Britain holds 
the presidency. 

At the outset, the talks are 


dispute over agriculture at the 
last Gatt ministerial meeting 
in Geneva. France has already 
objected to the bn g n yg g on 
agriculture in the working 
communique and the United 
Sates has threatened to walk 
out if the language on phasing 
out subsidies is weakened. 

Mr Channon V aim is to 
secure an agreement on the 
EEC nations by today or 
tomorrow in order to achieve 
a negotiating strategy that will 
remove as many obstacles as 
possible on agriculture and 
services 

Britain's goal in the talks is 
to place as many issues on the 
agenda as possible to allow the 
round to go forward in a 
manner which win cover all 
the broad bade areas. The 
British delegation, which is 
also headed by Mr Alan Clark, 
the trade minis ter, will also 
-press for specific language 
urging the world to address the 


‘ >i\ '<^Z. September, five months later.

JjThe Standard & Poors 500 
stock market index, which [ 
increased from 170 to 243 in 
- MM-Aprfl, ' has since just 
passed 250. 
f'The NYFE index of stock 
v fjrares, which rose from 100 in 
i October to 144 in mid-April, 
bps foiled to exceed 145 
'-npific^iitly since that time. 
.'XThe explanation is not to be | 
found in aiiy of the following: 

• A sodden advance of eco- 
nomic activity after mid-April. 
The second qnarter has turned 
oat to be the worst for four 
years. 

• An equally sodden advancel 
in -the price of gold, ofl, -or | 
commodities as a rthnte- 

• There. Was ^dso-oo-j 
advance in money growth-iMI, 
M2 and M3 grew more slowly 
in February, March and April 
than in 1985b- 

The absence of any such 
factors learn foe bond bolls 
seemingly without any reason- 
able explanation for what has 
| happened. 

For nndonbtedly, the bears 
command the markets 
One important event did 
take place in the middle of 
April: die second in tbe series 
of four arts in the discount 
rate. 

Tbe markets persist in call- 
ing for disco nnt rate cuts. Bat 
since the second of the recent 
series, bond prices have fallen, 
bond yields have risen and 
stock prices tumbled. 

Back in mid-April, the yield 
on the 90-day bill was jnst 
Aabost 6 per cent and the yield 
.*on the long-term treasuries 
was about 7^ per cent, wring a 
yield gap of about 140 basis 
points. Today the yield gap is 
about 223 basis points. 

This substantial steepening 
has been interpreted by the 
markets as indicating inflation 
on a “surge of growth”. 

In a cartons way, therefore, 
the Fed, by stfxpening the 
yield curve, has created a fear 
of inflation tbat simply will not 
be displaced by arguments 
based on facts sndb as the rise 
in oil, gold and platinum price 
futures, the CRB futures index 
and" the teeming rise in die 
payroll employment numbers 
. for August These inflation 
f and “growth surge” fears are 
entirely irrational. But they 
have a strong hold on the 
financial markets. 




mrJ 
opening presst 


s foreign minister, right, 
ofGatl,atti- 


large Japanese trade surpluses. 

As ministers gathered today 
to give their opening state-' 
merits, a group of natrons led 
by Nigeria, Zimbabwe and 
Jamaica, launched a camp ai gn 
to unseat South Africa from 
membership in protest against 
its apartheid racial policies. 

Tbe protest against South 
Africa was not supported by 
Britain and the United States 
and was not expected to 
succeed. The protesting na- 
tions threatened to walk out. 
An equally .embarrassing mo- 
tion to seat tbe Soviet Union 
at tbe talks with observer 
status was also expected to 

fail 

Tbe United Slates, which 
has pressed for years for the 
start of the: new round, has 
much at stake in the talks 

Mr Clayton Yeutter, the US 
trade representative, said on a 
US Air Force plane en route to 
the talks that a success in 
Puma del Este was crudal to 
President Reagan's trade poli- 
cies in 1987. 

Faced with protectionist 
measures in Congress, and a

A substantial increase in 
inquiries at the Tokyo em- 
bassy from British companies 
and potential Japanese im- 
porters has been received. In 
the first six months of the 
year, a record 1,400 business-

The Government has em- 
barked on a drive to persuade 
UK manufacturers to ■ take

With the UK’s top 30 
exports to Japan totalling only 
about £1 billion a year, min- 
isters believe that the time is 
now ripe for a British on- 
slaught on Japanese 
consumers. - 

Armed with intelligence 
from the British embassy in

Britain is in a favourable 
position because the country 
has attracted 36 per cent of all

‘Growth will reach 
3.1% next year’

growth in the narrow money 
rose, M0. 

The Liverpool forecast is for 
3.1 per cent growth next year, 
after 27 per cent this year. 
Inflation, measured by the 
consumer price index, is to 
average 3.4 per cent next year 
after 3.7 per cent this year, 
before foiling below 3 per cent 
for the rest of the decade. 

Unemployment is forecast 
to foil gently but will not drop 
below 3 million before 1989. 

The balance of payments is 
expected to slip into deficit 
next year, in hue with most 
forecasts. But the Liverpool 
projection is for a current 
account deficit of only £0.1 
billion next year, compared 
with the National Institute's 
deficit forecast of £5.8 billion. 

Tbe forecast, published by 
Liverpool Macroeconomic 
Research, remains at the 
optimistic end of the range of 
British projections. 


The economy will grow 
more strongly next year, 
buoyed by consumer spend- 
ing, according to the latest 
quarterly forecast from the 
Liverpool University Group 
headed by Professor Patrick 
Minford. 

A modest decline in un- 
employment is also possible, 
as the Government's special 
measures take effect 
Inflation is expected to re- 
main at or below 3 percent for 
the rest of the decade. 

“Uncertainties -about - oil 
prices and opposition policies, 
have unsettled financial 
markets,” Professor M inford 
says. “Tight monetary policy, 
partly in response to this 
uncertainty, has led to a 
weakening in business 
sentiment” 

He believes that the Chan- 
cellor should cut interest rates 
in line with the present slow

Restart 
‘finds 
jobs for 
10 %’ 


By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

Long-term unemployment 
is being dented by one of the 
latest initiatives of the Man 
power Services Commission 
(MSC). 

Restart, an intensive 
counselling scheme for the 
long-term unemployed, was 
launched nationally at the 
beginning of July after some 
six-month pilot schemes 
proved effective. First indica- 
tions are that 10 per cent of 
those counselled are finding 
jobs. 

Another MSC initiative, the 
JobClub, which coaches the 
unemployed in job-hunting, 
has also sinned producing 
encouraging results. One in 
three of those going through 
the clubs are finding jobs. 
Some long-term unemployed 
are being referred to Job Clubs 
through the Restart scheme. 

Grappling with the long- 
term unemployed problem is 
now a crucial target, said Mr 
Bryan Nicholson, the MSC 
chairman. He went on: “With 
those out of work for less than 
four years the tide has been 
turned but not with those 
unemployed for longer. Hope- 
fully we shall start to do that.” 

While the number of those 
jobless for four years or less 
has been sliding over the past 
J2 months, those on the dole 
for up to five years has risen 
11.5 per cent while those 
without a job for five years or 
more has gone up 48 per cenL 
Employers tend to favour 
those most recently in a job. 
The long-term jobless also lose 
motivation and become out of 
touch. A Restart course, usu- 
ally lasting a week, aims to pul 
that right. 

Out of 167,000 people coun- 
selled in the Restart pro- 
gramme to August 14 just over 
17,000 have found jobs, 
according to the latest MSC 
returns. The MSC has re- 
cruited 2,000 civil servants to 
carry through the Restart pro- 
gramme which aims try next 
March to interview all of the 
13 million who have, been 
unemployed "for a year or 
more. 

The MSC has already heard 
of some successes. At Dyfed in 
Wales a man out of work for 
five years was found a 
labourer's job within half ao 
hour. A cook at Liverpool was 
placed in part-time work after 
17 years without a job. 

Mr Nicholson said: “No- 
body should be written off just 
because they are long-term 
unemployed. Restart is all 
about ensuring that does not 
happen by giving the long- 
term unemployed an equal 
chance of gening a better share 
of what is going.” 

There are now 250 
JobCubs around the country. 
By the year end the MSC 
hopes to have 300 clubs rising 
to 450 by ApriL 


Top pay 
awards 
average 
at 7.7% 

By Edward Townsend, 
Industrial Correspondent 

Many of Britain's largest 
employers are ignoring the 
decline in inflation and paying 
their executives large salary 
and merit rises in a bid to 
discourage them leaving for 
better paid jobs with 
competitors. 

The latest quarterly figures 
from the top pay unit of 
Incomes Data Services (IDS) 
show that the average increase . 
recorded in the three months 
was 7.7 per cent - more than 
three times higher than the 24 
percent inflation rate 
The rate of executive pay 
rises has hardly declined from 
the 8 per cent of a year ago. but 
IDS stresses that current 
awards were budgeted for 
when inflation was 4-5 per 
cent. 

The latest IDS survey, 
covering 1 10 organizations of 
which more than half are 
manufacturing companies, 
shows that some senior man- 
agers in the private sector 
have been awarded salary rises 
of 25 per cent in recent 
months, although “an excep- 
tional executive” would nor- 
mally expea to receive 12-15 
percent. 

Where direct comparison 
was possible, 12 of the manu- 
facturers paid bigger executive 
increases this year than last, 
15 lower and five the same. 

Those paying more in- 
cluded Allied Breweries, 
Campbell's Soups, Fisons and 
Greenhall Whitley. Those 
who have cut the rate of 
increase include Anchor 
Foods. Bestobell. B1CC, 
Bronx Engineering. Glaxo, 
ICI. Shell UK and 3M. 

In the public seaor, the 
latest pay reviews range from 
5.5 per cent for people such as 
heads and vice principals at 
lytechnics and colleges of 
titer education to the 6.5 
per cent just agreed for 
electricity supply managers. 
Groups covered by review 
bodies have done a little 

better: " * 

IDS comments: “Though - 
generally- still below average, 
pay awards in the public seaor ' 
have often been higher this 
year than last but continuing 
Government restraints have 
meant pay levels falling still 
further behind those in the 
private sector”. 

The IDS figures reflea the 
dramatic impaa on salaries of 
the big bang in the City next 
month, with the “market 
making”conglomerates fight- 
ing for investment and soft- 
ware skills.

Why US futures traders 
like the ways of the past 

From Richard Lander, Bmgenstock, Switzerland 
Currency markets have been itself. However, they also least dipping 


conducted by means ot video 
screens and telepbone fines for 
years and stock exchanges, 
certainly the London one, 
appear to be beaded that way. 
Bat if the men and women who 
ran the world's largest futures 
and options markets have 
their way, floor traders wifl 
still be goi «;» strong — kicking 
and screaming their orders in 
tbe trading pits — well into (he 
next century. 

By dint of their large size, it 
is the American markets 
which rale the roost in the 
options and Mures world. 
Over the past 10 years they 
havetiemonstrated the scale of 
their inventiveness by the 
rapid expansion of contracts, 
particularly in the financial 
and stock index sphere. 

Yet the same executives who 


came up with some more 
rational explanations. Firstly, 
they said, the system works 
and can provide great liquid- 
ity, even after the exponential 
growth in business over the 
past 10 years and the record 
volumes seen last Thursday, 
the day of the Wall Street 
bloodbath. Bat can the pits 
survive another decade of such 
expansion? 

Mr Paul Stevens of the 
American Stock Exchange ar- 
gued that a share is a share 
and a currency is a currency, 
but a future or an option is a 
panoply of different series and 
strike prices that can only be 
charted in all its varieties on a 
central exchange floor. 

Whether those banks which 
have been equally inventive in 


its toe m, 

particularly the minnows 
the industry. Tbe New Zea- 
land Futures Exchange may 
do less business in a year than 
some US markets do in a day, 
but it does it all through a fully 
automated trading sysb 
developed by the International 
Commodities Clearing House. 

Mr Leonard Ward, the 


made it clear he wanted to 
needle some of tbe industry 
giants. The automated system, 
he pointed out, provided a 
perfect audit trail for trans- 
actions, the current bag bear of 
regulatory authorities on both 
sides of the Atlantic. And, 
without even invoking the 
longevity of his descendants, 
he maintained that “by the 
torn of the century, all of 
futures exchanges will be ns- 


Hurly-burly of the 
trading pits 


continually break these con- 
tract frontiers are loath to 
consider a world without trad- 
ing flows where business is 
executed at the touch of a 
button. 

For many of the exchange 
chiels here at the annual 
meeting of the Swiss Gommod- 
itiesand Futures Association, 
the whole question of doing 
with open outcry trading 
a raw nerve. 

Asked when the pit system 
would vanish, more than one 
evoked his family by replying: 
“Not hi my children's or 
grandchildren's lifetime”. 

Many of the executives 
obviously consider that the 
hurly-burly of the trading {tits 
is as essential to futures ami 
trading as baseball 
and apple pie are to America 


risk-management in- 
struments for their clients 
would agree is questionable. 

The exchanges also realize 
tbat they are qo more than the 

sum of their members, and 
many of their members, 
particularly individual “local” 
traders, would be without a 
firing if the pits went and the 
telephones took over. 

Several exchanges have in- 
troduced, or plan to use, 
automatic execution for small 
orders in an attempt to chip 
away at toe paper contract 
mountain in the pits. Doubt- 
less aware that such technol- 
ogy can easily be extended to 
any size of orders, floor trad- 
ers have raised doubts. Mr Bill 
Brodsky, president of the Chi- 
cago Mercantile Exchange, 
sank “Whenever we say 
automation to floor traders 
the}' think we're trying to pot 
them out of business”. 

But where America fears to 
tread, the rest of the world is at

trading system for some or afl 
of their products”. 

Another folly antomated ex- 
change Is tbe Swedish options 
market, which trades more 
than 8,000 contracts daily in 
10 Swedish stocks as well as 
Treasury bonds. Fifteen mar- 
ket makers are involved, a 
number which wifi be doubled 
soon. Both the Swedish and 
New Zealand markets have 
been going for less than two 
years, but other more estab- 
lished exchanges are also 
] oolong at tbe idea. One 
thought to be considering the 
matter dosely as a way of 
expanding into new related 
contracts is the London 
Commodity Exchange, home 
of Britain's futures markets

BUSINESS AND FINANCE 


Measuring 
success 
by mirrors 

Fend managers are mea- 
sured according to the perfor- 
mance of their funds a gainst 
an index of the market in the 
United Kingdom the most 
representative index is the 
FT A All-Share Index. 

The purpose of indevatio n, 
or passive hand managemen t 
ash is also called, is to enable 
a portfolio, or part of a 
portfolio, to mirror the perfor- 
mance of a chosen index. In 
practice, exact matching is 
impossible because managers 
cannot always bay all the 
securities comprising the in- 
dex. In addition, dealing and 
management costs will always 
result in a certain amount of 
nnderperforxnance. 

Passive fund managers do 
not agree among themselves as 
to the “correct” method of 
indexing. 

Managers who seek to rep- 
licate the index will bold every 
stock comprising the index. 
This can be very expensive to 
maintain, especially when 
investing new money or 
reinvesting dividends across 
what can be several hundred 
stocks. 

Managers who seek to 
duplicate the index will use a 
representative sample which 
can be relied on to track the 
movements of the whole index 
within defined limi ts This 
type of indexing is much 
cheaper to run. 


THE TIMES MONDAY SEPTEMBER 1 S 1986 

( ANALYSIS } 


Index-matching the job for fund managers * >;i 


Based on their long-term 
performance record, fund 
managers should index-match 
their funds, dear out their 
desks and go home. Over a 
sustained period, most fund 
managers will fail even to 
match the index they are 
trying to beaL Therefore, the 
solution to stopping them 
from frittering away our fu- 
ture pensions is passive fund 
management 

So runs the argument put 
forward by some of the more 
enthusiastic advocates of in- 
dex-matching, or passive fund 
management. There are now 
sophisticated computer pro- 
grammes which enable port- 
folios to mirror the index so 
that, excluding dealing costs, 
they will perform exactly in 
line with the index. 

Active pension fund man- 
agers labour under many dis- 
advantages. To begin with, the 
sheer size of their funds tends 
to make them inflexible. A 
single investment decision can 
involve the need to move 
millions of pounds and very 
often positions in stocks can- 
not be built up quickly. 

Another disadvantage is 
that fund manag ers are operat- 
ing in sophisticated and ef- 
ficient markets peopled by 
individuals who have been 
trained in the same invest- 
ment culture and who think 
and act alike. Most of the 
information on which invest- 
ment decisions are based is 
readily available to all of 


them, and share prices adjust 
quickly to their collective 
judgment. 

In the UK, only 25 per cent 
of equities by market 
capitalization is owned by 
individual investors. The 
other 75 per cent is 
“managed" by one type of 
institution or another. The 
fond managers therefore are 
the index to a very large extent 
and they are all trying to 
outperform one another. 

But when they all have the 
same information, think alike 
and respond in similar ways. 

Operators fail to 
beat rivals because 
they think alike 

none is likely to be able to 
maintain an advantage over 
the others for very long. The 
empirical evidence is that in 
the long term, regardless of 
how well they are staffed, most 
investment firms fad to do so. 

Analysis of performance 
statistics shows that as much 
as 80 per cent of a fund's 
return is attributable to strate- 
gic derisions and only 20 per 
cent to stock picking. In other 
words, it is much more im- 
portant to be in the right 
markets than to be in the right 
stocks. 

•The chart bears this out In 
1981, fund managers should 
have avoided Australia and 
Canada and invested heavily 


in Japan and the United 
States In 1983, Australia was 
the best performing market, 
but in 1985 it was one of the 
worst, and the successful fund 
would have been over- 
weighted in Europe and the 
United Kingdom in 1985. 

This suggests an important 
conclusion: fond managers 
should spend most of their 
time evaluating each country's 
economy, currency, inflation 
outlook and stock markets, 
rather than analysing individ- 
ual stocks. 

Traditionally, the emphasis 
has been the other way. Teams 
of analysts pore over the 
minutiae of company profit 
forecasts, while global market 
economic analysis has been 
left to a very few 
speriaIist$.Bul it has to be said 
that they may not be any more 
successful at picking markets 
than they were at picking 
stocks. 

What also emerges from the 
chart is that UK pension fund 
managers often do signifi- 
cantly worse than the local 
indices when they invest over- 
seas. They outperformed in 
Tokyo in 1981 and 1983, but 
underperformed in 1985. 
They consistently 

underperformed by significant 
margins in Australia, the US 
and Canada. 

They most densely tracked 
the index in the UK, further 
proof of the dominance of 
nurd management thinking in 
the British market. But it is 


their home market and the 
one they know bet 
This leads to a second 
conclusion: on current form 
there is a strong case for 
indexing at least part or all of 
the overseas portfolio, and 
possibly also a case for index- 
ing the UK portfolio since, 
over time, performance in line 
with the market is the best the 
UK portfolio manager can 
hope to achieve. 

Fund ■ management 
organizations tend to be small, 
with few decision makers. It is 
very difficult for most 

Expertise needed 
for global work 
can be expensive 

management houses to main- 
tain the level of knowledge 
and expertise needed for 
global investment except at 


very great cost. 

Passive fund managem ent 
is more commonly found in 
the US than in the UK, but is 
possibly not indulged in as 
mudi as the bald numbers 
sugg est It amounts to $19 
billion (£13 million) out of 
$186 billion of US corporate 
pension fund schemes in- 
vested in US equities, or 
around 10 per cent. Across all 
types of funds, it is estimated 
that there is a total of $80 
billion is estimated to be in 
passive funds, again about 10 
percent 


In the UK, there is an 
estimated £8 billion of pas- 
sively managed funds, equiva- 
lent to 5 per cent of the £150 
billion of UK pension funds 
invested in the equity market 

Indexing has caught on with 
only a handful of UK pension 
fund managers. PosTd and 
the British Telecom pension 
funds alone account for £4.5 
billion of this. 

Aquilla Investment Ser- 
vices, the passive fund 
management arm of financial 
conglomerate BZW, claims to 
be the next biggest with £1-5 
billion. Close behind is 
County Securities. The Esso 
pension fond is much smaller, 
but it has more than 75 per 
cent of its UK equity portfolio 
indexed. 

Interest in passive fund 
management looks set to grow 
with the increasing globaliza- 
tion of markets. Aquilla is 
expanding its passive funds, 
while Chase Manhattan and 
Legal and General have both 
announced they are setting up 
indexed funds. 

Once indexation really 
catches on, and everybody 
goes global the international 
market win become increas- 
ingly efficient, and fond man- 
agers will be bade where they 
started, this time 
underper fo r m ing the global 
index. 

Until, that iSj some bright 
spark suggests picking stocks!

GILT-EDGED 


Rates threaten 
to hit 11% 

Even gnarled London deal- obliges the Fed to tighten in a 
ers admitted to a sense of relief bid to restore confidence. 


last Friday when the wind- 
down started ahead of the 
weekend. Never before, 
admitted one old gilt hand, 
have prices fallen so for and so 
fast — and then turned round 
and moved the other way. The 
overall direction for yields 
may be upwards, but it is all 
too easy to get whipsawed on 
the way. 

In the past fortnight, prices 
have fallen about four points. 
At one stage last week, furious 
selling saw prices down six 
points. This means that yields 
have risen by 40 basis points 
since' the start of the month, 
rising from 9.61 per cent to 
10.04 percent. 

Yet on Friday afternoon, 
between 130 and 135 after 
US retail sales data and the 
Producer Prices Index were 
released, futures rose by two 
points — and then lost one. 

The picture seems fairly 


Such is the theory which 
attempts to enshrine last 
week's violent New York sell- 
off in some form of rational 
structure. Equally, the US is 
quite capable of eluding the 
policy constraints which Ja- 
pan and Germany seek to 
impose on it by cutting rates 
again, and forcing the dollar 
down through support levels. 

The UK's role in this global 
power-play is ambivalent. 
London seems to have en- 
joyed the worst of all worlds in 
the shakeout mainly because 
of the flawed composition of 
its exchange rate and mone- 
tary policies. 

London has been targeting 
Frankfurt on interest rate 
policy; this has kept rates high ' 
and supported sterling. But 
gilts have been shadowing 
New York, a split which 
enabled the Chancellor to let 
monetary policy grow un- 


easy to rationalize. But how without any obvious 

the United Kingdom fits in y mas. The op- 


remains incalculable. 

The September market 
gyrations represent a study in 
changing inter-relationships 
between the three main cash 
variables which influence 
investor sentiment — money 
rates; bond yields; and ex- 
change rates. Continued 
adherence by Germany and 
Japan to tight monetary poli- 
cies has devastated the pre- 


tirnism built into this struc- 
ture has now been laid bare. 

A gilts’ sell-off would be 
enough to destabilize sterling. 
This would bring the 
Chancellor's whole con- 
voluted structure tumbling 
down, by forcing interest rates 
up to defend the currency. 
And higher rates threaten the 
very coping-stone of the 
Chancellors pre-election strat-

KLP leads the way with 
Sales promotion services 


Sales promotion is to some 
extent the unsung hero of the 
marketing world- With an 
estimated United Kingdom 
total of more than £5 mUion 
annual spending, it takes a 
rather huger proportion of the 
total marketing expenditure 
than advertising. 

Historically it has received 
far less attention than the 
high-profile advertising agen- 
cies. This was partly due to the 
fact that a large proportion of 
the sales promotion spending 
was allocated in-house, 
whereas nearly all advertising 
is placed through agencies. 

However, this is now 
changed and a number of sales 
promotion consultancies have 
emerged as major forces in the 
industry reflecting their exper- 
tise and growing range of 
skills. 

Five of ' these businesses 
have come to the USM so far 
and one . of them has recently 
graduated to the main market. 

Due to the rather poorly 
documented native of the 
industry it is difficult to gouge 
its size or growth reconL but 
most industry commentators 
believe that growth has been — 
and is likely to remain — in the 
15-10-20 per cent a year 
bracket. 


London 'Shop Property 
Trust: Mr John BusheD be- 
comes chairman and chief 
executive from October 23. 

Ash & Lacy Perforators: Mr 
Peter Robinson has been made 
managing director. 

Stewart Wrightson: Mr G 
Boden becomes chairman, 
Stewart Wrightson Construc- 
tion Risks, Mr GT Sanders 
chairman, Stewart Wrightson ' 
Excess Risks and Mr GF 
Nixon chairman, Stewart 
Wrightson Freight 

Movement. 


This has been fester than 
that of advertising, and 
accordingly the sales promo- 
tion stare of the marketing 
expenditure has been increas- 
ing. - 

The chief reason for this has 
been its growing competitive- 
ness in cost terms, in compari- 
son with the high level of 
media price inflation, and the 
growing awareness of its effec- 
tiveness as a -marketing tool 
combined with the develop- 
ment in expertise of die sales 
promotion agencies. 

The KLP Group came to the 
USM in 1983 and is the 
acknowledged industry leader. 
Siace its flotation the com- 
pany has made a number of 
acquisitions to broaden its 
range of activities, including 
overseas operations in France 
and Holland. . It has 
established a substantial op- 
eration in the actual servicing 
of promotional . campaigns 
through its Parker Redmiie 
and Robert Guy operations. 

These operations 'have 
warehousing and distribution 
capabilities and work both for 
the parent company and 
undertake external work for 
third parties. In addition, KLP 
owns Odhams Leisure Group 
and SML which are involved 


m the direct marlrFfrng Tinsi. 

ness. KLP shares are on a 
prospective p/e of about 14 for 
the year to September 1986. . 

FKB was the next agency,to 
come to the USM, and al- 
though less active than KLP 
with regard to acquisitions, 
has shown good growth and 
has proved to be very success- 
ful in starting new operations 

in which the manag ement 

often retains a minority 1 

interest. 

It has also taken the fairly 
unusual step of entering the 
field of public relations, by the 
establishment of Jarvis Read, 
in which it has a 75 per cent 
stake and has operations in 
the telephone marketing,, de- 
sign and field promotion- sec- 
tors. The shares are on a 
prospective p/e of about 19 for 
the year ending March 1987. 

Counter Products Market- 
ing came to the USM in 1985 
and is rather different from its 
three companions. Firstly, it 
outdares them by a consid- 
erable margin having been 
established m the 1930s. Sec- 
ondly, its core business is the 
provision of ancillary sales 
merchandising and promo- 
tional personnel rather than a 
sales promotion consultancy.

[COMMENT] 


Trade deficit the key 
to American malaise 


Wall Street became so gloomy about 
the American economy at the end of 
last week that strong economic growth 
was seen as bad for inflation and 
j interest rates, while low growth was 
feared as an indicator of recession. 
There is, however, one economic 
development which would be widely 
welcomed by the markets — a reduc- 
tion in the US trade deficit. 

By helping to stabilize the dollar, an 
improvement in American trade is 
probably the only way of securing a 
non-luflatioDary recovery in growth. 
Unfortunately, the record $18 billion 
July trade deficit showed that no such 
improvement is in sight. 

It is particularly disappointing that 
the sharp fell in the dollar has not led 

Rawed argument 

to a recovery in exports. Many 
economists argue that this simply 
reflects the J-curve effect: a fall in the 
currency initially increases the deficit, 
because it worsens the terms of trade, 
ahead of any volume improvement. 

This argument has flaws. The fall in 
oil prices has actually caused the US 
terms of trade to rise over the past 
year. Import prices fell by 3.4 per cent 
in the year lo July, compared with a 
0.8 per cent rise in export prices. 

The poor trade performance reflects 
continuing adverse changes in vol- 
ume. In the three months to July, the 
volume of exports was 4.4 per cent 
down over the year before, while 
imports surged by almost 16 per cent. 
The dollar peaked 1 8 months ago and 
the lag between a currency depreciat- 
ing and trade volumes improving 
should not be that long. 

The Administration has focused on 
the slow growth of other industrial 
economies as a part-explanation of 
weak American exports. This may be 
a politically attractive argument but 
its significance has probably been 
overstated. 

The latest figures from Japan and 
West Germany showed that domestic 
demand grew strongly in the second 
quarter. Moreover, Europe and Japan 
have historically taken less than 40 
per cent of US exports. 

Little attention has been given to a 
more fundamental cause of the mal- 
aise in American exports — the bias to- 
wards commodities and capital goods. 
These are depressed sectors in terms 
both of price and consumption. The 
US depends too much on goods that 
nobody wants to buy. 

Almost 40 per cent of US exports 
are commodity-related. These exports 
fell by 22 per cent between 1980 and 
1985. This reflected the loss of 
American competitiveness but it has 
been due, more importantly, to the 
weakness of commodity prices and to 
more countries becoming self-suf- 
ficient ip food. 

Agricultural deficit 

The US now has a deficit on 
agricultural trade for the first time 
since 1945. This important compo- 
nent of US exports is unlikely to rise 
significantly over the next year, given 
little prospect of a big recovery in 
commodity prices or demand. 

Another 35 per cent of American 
exports are capital goods (21 per cent 
when computers and aircraft are 
excluded). While the value of com-

puter exports has almost doubled over 
the last five years, exports of other 
machinery have fallen by 10 per cent. 

While the fall in the dollar should 
contribute to some recovery in this 
sector, capital spending is not ex- 
pected to be buoyant in either Europe 
or Japan. There’is little incentive to 
invest given excess capacity in most 
countries and slowing profits growth. 

The US cannot expect a strong 
recovery in exports to solve the 
problem of its trade deficiL It will 
have to rely mainly on lower imports. 

There is a problem here too. The 
dollar's decline has not been broadly 
based. It has held its value or even 
appreciated against the currencies of 
many important trading partners, 
including Canada. South Korea, Tai- 
wan and most Latin American coun- 
tries. These areas provide more than 
40 per cent of American imports. 
Many countries therefore remain 
competitive against the US. 

Constrained growth 

A decline in the American trade 
deficit is most likely to be achieved by 
a period of slow growth in US 
domestic demand relative to that in 
other countries. As output growth is 
generally expected to average 3 per 
cent in Europe and Japan over the 
next year, American growth will need 
to be constrained to about 2 per cent. 
Forecasts of a strong recovery in US 
growth and a reduction in the trade 
deficit are inconsistent. 

It remains unclear whether the 
Administration and Congress have 
the patience to wait for what will be a 
gradual process. Both Paul Volcker, 
chairman of the Federal Reserve 
Board, and Clayton Yeutter, the 
senior US trade negotiator, are gi ving 
warning that the trade deficit is 
politically and economically 
unsustainable. 

The risks of protectionism are 
growing. History tells us that such 
measures would have disastrous con- 
sequences for economic growth and 
confidence in financial markets.

September 15, 1986 
By Patricia Tisdall 




Si. 


it out in the 

high street 



A 





. ,r-. 


y 


revolution in retail 
thinking ties behind 
the huge take-over 
battles which have 
. ^ buffeted Britain's 
high street store groups during 
2the past few months. Big is no 
s longer beautiful in business 
Glenns. 

;* High volume sales no longer 
i automatically lead to profit — 
land hemlines can be any 
r lengih the wearer chooses, 
t," Sir Terence Conran started 
the retail acquisition craze in 
ready 1982 when his Habitat 
^company bought Mothercare. 
.Less than a year later came the 
jgk of F W Woolworth (one 
«e'fr the biggest landmarks on 
The retail property map with 
unore than 1,000 stores) to 
j£atern osier Stores, a < con- 
isortium of City financiers. 

- “.‘‘The ripples caused by the 
hjew owners' attempts to re- 
align such a big and diversi- 
fied group as Woolworth 
spread to • every sector of 
Shopkeeping. Rapid growth of 
Hits; highly profitable B&Q 
.chain of amateur building and 
■decorating materials helped to 
ftqvelop new retail warehouse 
•rites on railway embankments 
and industrial estates away 
from conventional shopping 
streets. 

*■ The closure of more than 
high street branches re- 
many prime sites, 
including the flagship store in 
London's Oxford Street, to 
new entrepreneurs. ■ 

In April. 1984, the 
giockwaves to hardware 
stores spread to electrical 
Stockists with Woolworth's 
purchase of the Comet dis- 
count electrical goods chain. 
With hindsight, it comes as no 
surprise that Dixons, which 
had moved a long way from its 
origins in photographic equip- 


ment into high-profile con- 
sumer electronics, such as 
pocket calculators and 
Walkman stereos, should 
launch a bid for the slower 
moving Cuny seven months, 
later. 

But the Woolworth sale also 
bad a psychological effect in 
easing traditionally conser- 
vative purse strings. When 
Stanley Kahns, ' chairman of 
Dixons, launched the am- 
bitious bid for Woolworth, 
which nearly' succeeded last 
spring, he claimed he had been 
thinking about such a move 

Proprietors prowl 
rivals’ shops on 
window-shopping 
expeditions 

since the Paternoster deal four 
years earlier. ■ 

The Burton group is also 
understood to have looked at 
Woolworth before embarking 
on the take-over road which 
eventually, in August 1985, 
took it to the bead of the 
department stores league table 
with Debenhams. 

Once financial wheels begin 
to turn they can gather consid- 
erable momentum in a world 
where the proprietors* 
favourite hobby tends to be 
that of prowling around rival 
premises on window-shop- 
ping expeditions. 

A good example of accelera- 
tion is that of Sir Terence, 
whose merger last October of 
Habitat-Mothercare with Brit- 
ish Home Stores through the 
newiy-created Storehouse 
group, demonstrated a tenfold 
increase in financial influence 
in less than four years. 

A common underlying fac- 
tor has been the abrupt change 


in economic conditions and 
the sharp fall in inflation rates. 
In early 1982, when Habitat 
bought Mothercare, the Retail 
Price Index was rising at the 
rate of 12 per cent. 

A year later it had dropped 
to 5. per cent. By mid- 1986^ 
which had already seen the 
Dixons/Woolworth battle and 
more than a dozen smaller 
tussles, inflation stood at un- 
der 3. per cent and has since 
fallen even further. 

The high-volume. low- 
profit margin of the “pile it 
high and sell it cheap" trading 
philosophy, pioneered by the 
early supermarkets, bad to be 
re-examined. 

Throughout this period 
wages continued to rise at 
more than double the inflation' 
rate.. Most', shoppers were 
much wealthier than they had 
been during the price-cutting 
wars of the 1970s, although 
the constant shadow of redun- 
dancy meant they wanted 
value for money. 

Many traditional retail in- 
stitutions were too unwieldy 
to respond to die change in 
their customers' expectations, 
like the network of Co-op- 
erative Societies which domi- 
nated all sectors of retailing in 
the 1960s. Despite strenuous 
efforts to modernize, the Co- 
op hardly rates a mention. 

The new economic climate 
gave entrepreneurs an un- 
precedented opportunity both 
to enter the retail arena and to 
expand rapidly. The' two key 
elements which favoured the 
new entrants were the 
availability of sites and a more 
sympathetic attitude among 
bankers and financial 
institutions. 

Ten years after opening a 
single herbal cosmetics shop 
in Brighton, with a £4,000 



One-stop shopping: Customers at the Asda superstore on London's Isle of Dogs can buy anything from minced meat to motor cars 


bank loan, Anita Roddick's 
Body Shop business has more 
than 200 outlets and is worth 
an estimated £40 million. 
After opening two successful 
shops, Mrs Roddick turned to 
franchising as a mechanism 
for growth because, she says, 
“even then we had do money 
to expand". 

There are many more exam- 
ples of comparatively young 
entrepreneurs (Mrs Roddick is 
43) who are new entrants to 
the high street and are running 
companies which have stayed 
small. 

A high proportion will not 
survive, but while they are in 
existence they change the 
dynamics of the local trading 
environment, if only by add- 
ing, more variety. 


Retailing is a dynamic 
activity and big changes are 
also under way within the 
store groups which have not 
changed owners. At Boots, for 
instance, experiments have 
been in progress for some time 
to create specialist “shops 
within shops" in the larger 
outlets of the 1,000-strong 
chain and to focus the smaller 
stores on a particular theme, 
such as health care, beauty or 
baby wear. This specialization 
is designed to make the best 
use of the location and size of 
the individual store. 

The strategy at 
W. H. Smith is also geared to 
specialist retailing. Some years 
ago it identified four major 
product groups: books, maga- 
zines. stationery and recorded 


music. It has since bought 
Classic Bookshops in 1985 
and the Our Price chain of 
music cassette stores. 
W. H. Smith plans to open 40 
more Our Price outlets within 
the next year to add to the 
Music Market name, another 
specialist record store group. 

The youthful style of the 
Our Price boutiques, where 
male staff lend to wear jeans 
and earrings, will not be 
merged with the open-plan, 
middle-of-the-road style mu- 
sic sections within the 
W. H. Smith own-name 
stores. 

At Woolworth, the success 
in thwarting the Dixons's bid 
does not mean the manage- 
ment believe they are immune 


to change. It has. instead, 
given new confidence to rad- 
ical restructuring plans which 
concentrate on six key mer- 
chandise areas: confectionery, 
children's wear and toys, 
horticultural and DIY prod- 
ucts, records, cassettes and 
videos, table and kilchenwear 
and personal-care products. 

Woolworth also intends to 
develop satellite specialist 
stores on smaller high street 
sites. This is a policy which 
Marks & Spencer has applied 
in outlets which are too small 
to carry its vast range of 
products. To implement the 
new policy. Woolworth is 
investing about £1.5 million 
on management training. 

All the big multiples have 
procedures for training shop 


assistants, but training at 
management level on such a 
large scale is rare if not 
unprecedented. 

A welcome result of the 
multiples' more flexible atti- 
tude is that many smaller or 
outdated branches which 
would have been closed a 
decade ago (the Co-op shut 
400 shops in a single yesu- in 
the mid-1970s) will continue 
to “anchor" neighbouring in- 
dependent tradere by drawing 
in customers from a wide 
catchment area. 

Most of the incoming 
proprietors in the recent wave 
of mergers are keenly aware 
that the cultivation of an 
attractive, leisurely at- 
mosphere makes good busi- 
ness sense.

(tFOCtJSl) 


The bright way to 
entice bigger sales 


Customers are no longer toe- 
jng a single fashion line. The 
Benetton chain was one of the 
first of a new generation of 
companies to capitalize on 
women's new-found indepen- 
dence in the choice of colour 
and hemlines. But Benetton, 
as ns competitors never fail to 
point out. is not only a retailer 
but a manufacturer. 

Founded in 1965 in the 
.Italian town of Treviso, near 
Venice. Benetton has grown 
into a company with net sales 
Of more than 66S billon lire 
(about £666 million) and has 
more than 3.200 shops in 37 
countries. It also has eight

factories (five in Italy, the rest 
in Spain. France and Scot- 
land) which produced more 
than 40 million brightly-col- 
oured woollen garments in 
1984. 

4 new cotton manufac- 
turing plant in North Carolina 
is due to start production later 
this year. 

Bright colours are a hall- 


mark of the Benetton opera- 
tion. The story is that the 
compan> started when 
Luciano Benetton (now 
managing director), the eldest 
of three brothers and a sister, 
was forced io abandon his 
studies io work as an assistant 
in a men's clothes store to help 
his widowed mother. 

His sister. Giuliana. sewed 
sweaters fora textile manufac- 
turer. but also designed her 
own garments on a home 
knitting machine using bright 
coloured wool. 

Gradually, the family devel- 
oped an original technique 
which enabled garments to be 
dyed after they were made. It 
has since invested heavily in 
electronic production and de- 
sign equipment to meet chang- 
ing consumer demands almost 
at the flick of a switch. 

Benetton has also made 
profitable use of the small high 
street stores which were being 
discarded in large numbers by 
less flexible tailoring com- 
panies throughout Europe. 
This, together with the 
application of the franchise 
principle, enabled the chain to 
expand like wildfire once it 
started to move outside us 
Italian base in the late 
I970s.Since 1977. exports 
have increased from 2 percent 
of turnover to 60 per cent. 

The Benetton merchandise 
is packed flat on shelves and 
relics on its distinctive colours 


to attract attention. When 
George Davies joined the then 
fading i Hep worth men swear 
company and started convert- 
ing its ncwly-acquired Ken- 
dalls shops into what has now 
become ihc Next chain in 
J9S1-81 he went several 
stages further in co-ordinating 
skirts with jumpers ana 
displaying them to best 
advantage. 

Mr Davies's tactics struck 
an instant rapport with 
women in the 23-40 age 
bracket who disliked the 
avant-garde punk look being 
developed for their younger 
sisters and who could afford to

pay more and wanted better 
quality garments than those 
offered in C & A. British 
Home Stores. Littlewoods and 
other chain stores. 

Since then. Next not only 
expanded into a chain of more 
than 200 womenswear shops, 
but has created a unisex Next 
for Men chain, and last year 
moved into furnishings with 
Next Interiors. 


Conran’s image of success 


The importance of display was 
realized long ago by Sir Ter- 
ence Conran, who believes that 
the design and atmosphere of 
the stores are as important as 
the goods they stock. 

He first applied the prin- 
ciple to Habitat furniture and 
household goods, bat more 
than a decade later proved it 
again with Richards, a fashion 
chain which he acquired along 
the way to the BHS merger. 

“We put some of die new 
merchandise into Richard 
Shops that hadn't been mod- 
ernized and the sales figures 
were poor. The same clothes 
did immensely better in the 
shops that we had refitted," he 
said. Sir Terrace is pas- 



Sir Terence: proved a point 

sionately involved with design 
which covers all aspects of 
shopkeeping. 

“It cannot be half-hearted,'" 
be says. “A few life-size photos 
and the signs ‘co-ordinates’ 


hanging up in stores will not 
change the environment" 

Another elemental principle 
of retailing which Sir Terence 
endorses is the importance of 
rapid and detailed feedback on 
sales figures, which was ap- 
plied with considerable suc- 
cess by the Barton group at 
Top Shop a decade or so ago. 

It remains to be sera how 
effectively he can apply the 
twin ingredients off com- 
prehensive design and 
computerized sales and stock 
information to BHS, whose 
new corporate image is being 
unveiled this month and which 
carries a wider spectrum of 
merchandise than any of the 
boutique-type specialists.

Problems and progress 
at the shopping centres 


It is more difficult for pur- 
pose-built shopping centres to 
adjust to new conditions than 
it is for traditional high streets, 
where shopping is' only one 
aspect of ^shifting mixture of 
social and commercial 
activities. 

This is one reason for the To 
Let signs still adorning 
premises in the spate of new 
shopping centres designed for 
people living within easy trav- 
elling distance — in retail- 
planning jargon, the 
"catchment area”. 

Research by Hillier Parker, 
property surveyors, shows a 
remarkable rise in out-of-town 
shopping schemes during the 
past year. Proposals an- 
nounced between March and 
June alone involve 12 million 
sq ft of shopping space. This 
compares with the 4 million 
sq ft opened since 1977. 

The problem with many of 
the first generation centres is 
not only that they have be- 
come sadly out of date but, 
like the early post-war tower 
blocks, they were not well 
built in the first place. 

The Amdale Centres m 
Wandsworth. London, and 
Doncasterare two examples of 
older centres which have al- 
ready been comprehensively 
upgraded. Built in the late 
1950s with 300.000 sq ft and 
more than 100 retail units, the 
Wandsworth centre was one 
of the first of its type. 

The centre's fortunes spi- 
ralled downwards steadily un- 
til the owners. Town ana City 
Properties, called in the 
McColl architecture and de- 
sign company to create an 
environment which would at- 
tract and retain retail tenants. 
Improvements included big- 
ger signposts, brighter lights 
and a fountain, pooL trees and 
seats. A campaign was 
launched to ensure that the 
improved appearance . was 
maintained. 

The result is that graffiti and 
vandalism levels have 
dropped and the number of 
shoppers has increased. More 
national-name retailers are 
taking leases and some of the 
existing tenants have been 
encouraged to upgrade their 
own presentation. 

Other centre owners took 
note and McColls say they are 
now looking at IS further 
refurbishment* of this nature. 
Uneradina the Doncaster 


centre involved comprehen- 
sive reconstruction as well as 
refurbishment and resulted in 
a £4.5 million bill for the 
owners, the Prudential. 

Architects Leslie Jones & 
Partners were, however, able 
to turn the difficulties to 
design advantage by introduc- 
ing natural lighting. They built 
in a central, glazed atrium to 
provide a focal point which, 
they claim, is the largest, 
aluminium-arched single span 
in Europe. 

The image factor is all 
important for success in retail- 
ing. say the designers. But 
changing the decor alone in a 
20-year-old centre can cost 
more than the original price of - 
the whole development- 
converting historic but 
redundant buildings into re- 
tail centres can be even more 

The improvement 
schemes have cut 
vandalism and 
pulled in shoppers 

costly. Covent Garden, the old 
wholesale fruit and vegetables 
market, began the trend in the 
mid-1970s. The St Quintin 
properly consultancy recently 
identified 20 such speciality 
shopping schemes, eight un- 
der construction and seven 
with planning permission. 

Albert Dock in Liverpool 
comprises the largest group of 
Grade I listed buildings in the 
UK. It has a strong rec- 
reational element and. like 
Covent Garden, is expected to 
become an important tourist 
attraction. Others, such as the 
Waverley Market in Edin- 
burgh and the Cavern Walks 
in Liverpool are intended to 
give trading variety to a 
nearby prime shopping street. 

Most ambitious of the out- 
of-town shopping centres are 
the up-market covered malls. 
Brent Cross, which opened in 
north-west London in March, 
1976. was a trend-setter, both 
in terms of scale and location. 
The 790.000 sq ft of gross 
selling space and associated 
parking proved an instant 
success with shoppers and 
traders and inspired John 
Hall, the chairman of Cam- 
eron Hall Developments and a 
seifetyled entrepreneur, to 
buy an even bigger I I-acre site 


— more than double that at 
Brent Cross - about three 
miles outside the centres ot 
Newcastle and Gateshead. 

But there were still many 
misgivings about the concept 
of regional shopping centres 
and it was not until 1983. 
when Mr Hall held an ex- 
hibition publicizing his idea 

for an America n-style leisure 
and shopping park, that he 
could persuade any of the big 
high street names to take space 
on ihe old power station tip. 
Dynamic newcomers such 
;MFI 


as 


„ ,.f FI and Hams Queensway 
have shown how bulky goods 
can be marketed effectively 
from cheap premises. From a 
handftil of mainly electrical 
discount warehouses in the 
late 1970s. trade estimates are 
of a tenfold increase during 
the part few years and for 
continuing expansion. 

The variety of goods sold in 
warehouse centres is expand- 
ing rapidly. From tools and 
decorating products, the 
Woolwonh-owned B&Q 
chain, for example, has devel- 
oped home care furnishing 
stores and centres for servic- 
ing cars, and is expanding 
rapidly from 163' ouilets in 
1985 towards a target of 400. 

Texas Homecare which had 
1 1 7 stores in 1984 is looking to 
a target of 250. An American 
chain. Toys R* US. js also 
looking at warehouse sites. 

Halfords, the motor parts 
and accessories chain owned 
by Ward White, has moved 
into superstores which av- 
erage 10.000 sq fl and offer 
more than 6.000 products. By 
last Easter the company had 
18 such stores and. according 
to Ian Staples, the managing 
director, plans are well ad- 
vanced fora national chain -of 
at least 100 by 198B-89. 

A more recent development 
ts the creation of repair and 
servicing workshops next to 
the stores. The first of these, 
which offer motorists a "Lim- 
ited Menu” service (the auto- 
motive equivalent ' of fast 
food), opened at Perry Barr in 
Birmingham in July, 1985. 

It offered motorists 6.000 
and 12,000 mile services at 
fixed prices, fast oil changes, 
tyre fitting and a range of free 
services including comput- 
erized diagnostic testing and 
pre-MOT tests, all m a dean 
bright wed-lit building at 
competitive prices.

High street qnaiity: Maries & Spencer leads the way in good food 

The disappearing village shop 


Food stores have not re- 
mained, unscathed from the 
recent spate of mergers and 
takeovers. The past 1 8 months 
have seen the acquisition by 
the Asda superstore group of 
MFL 

'It has also seen several 
smaller purchases, taking Alec 
Monk's Dee Corporation 
from a zero rating on the 
league (able to the third. largest 
supermarket chain after Tesco 
and Sainsbury. outdoing 
groups of-slorcs like Gateway 
and Woolworth's Woolco 
outlets. 

The big supermarkets' share 
of food sales is getting bigger 
and that of the independents is 
contracting. With 77 per cent 
of retail food sales now con- 
centrated in just 10 store 
groups, the market is becom- 
ing steadily more 
concentrated. 

The outlook for the village 
shop's survival is grim, a view 
continued by two reports 
published during the summer. 
“No more than three in every 
10 rural stores are totally 
sound and 10 per cent are in 
dire circumstances from 
which there is no long-term 
escape", concluded the 
Development Commission, in 
one of the reports. 

It blamed changing shop- 
ping habits and consumers* 
greater mobility, together with 
economy drives by manufac- 
turers. forcing shopkeepers to 
buy more from middlemen 
than obtaining deliveries 
direct. 

. The second report The 
l Vlagc Shop - a Radical Plan 
hr its Long-Term SunivaL is. 
as its title would suggest, 
somewhat more- constructive. 
It shows that by becoming 
agents ofiocal authorities and 


public services, small village 
shopkeepers could augment 
their retail profits with extra 
income in the same way as 
postmasters by distributing 
prescriptions, delivering li- 
brary books, acting as 
Citizens' Advice Bureaux, or 
forming networks of lifeline 
call systems for the aged. 

To help small village shops 
the Council for Small In- 
dustries ' in Rural Areas 
(COSIRA) has co-ordinated a 
money-off advertising promo- 
tion. supported by six .big 
grocery manufacturers. 

The outlook for small gro- 
cery stores in urban- areas is 
rather better with the entry by 
big. names into the 
“convenience" store concept. 
The idea behind chains like 
Guinness's “7-EIeven" is to 
cater for emergency purchases 
with long opening hours and 
to go for high profit margins 
rather than cut prices. 

The stores are intended to 
stock a big range of products 
from frozen foods to news- 
papers. but also to tempt the 
shopper with an indulgence 
buy like hot bread or exotic 
fruit. 

The race continues for big 
sites. Last year saw the open- 
ing of 29 superstores (27.000 
sq ft) and one hypermarket 
(54.000 sq ft)., the largest 
number in any year since 1 98 1 
and there are many more in 
the planning pipeline. 

London now has two stores 
which qualify .for the 
hypermarket definition of al 
least 54.000 sq ft of trading 
floor space on a single level. 
The Tesco branch which 
opened at Ncasden last year, 
with a trading floor space of 
60,000 sq ft. has just pipped 


Asda. which owns the other 
London, hypermarket. It 
opened on the Isle of Dogs in 
London in 1983 and has 
56.000 sq ft. 

.According to the Unit for 
Retail Planning Information's 
listings, the largest stores trad- 
ing in Britain are the Carrel 
four ai Bristol (90.000 sq ft). 
SavaCemrc at Calcoi. Reading 
(81 .000 sq ft) and the Tesco at 
Weston FavelL Northampton 
(1 05.000 sq ft). 

But the big store groups 
have no intention of stopping 
there. David Grans by. group 
development director of Asda- 
MFL said superstore retailing 
has just begun in the UK and 
is nowhere near saturation 
point. 

Ian MacLaurin. the chair- 
man of Tesco. sees the future 
of retailing lying with special- 
ists. He foresees diversifies-, 
lion into services such as 
banking, but in conjunction 
with existing experts. 

The superstores are working 
hard to improve the quality 
and presentation of the fresh 
food they offer. Space for- 
merly used for warehousing is 
being given over to butchers, 
bakers and greengrocers. 

But in tenns of quality and 
imagination, the super- 
markets have a long way to go 
to catch up with Maries & 
Spencer, which became, rather 
surprisingly, the pioneer of 
good food and tasty ready- 
prepared meals when it was 
still basically a fashion cloth- 
ing chain. 

It remains to be seen 
whether Marks & Spencer’s 
link with Tesco in big out-of- 
town store development in- 
fluences superstore food 
standards for the better. 


RETAILING/3 


Mail order 
regroups 
for twin 
attack 


The mail-onier catalogue 
firms, who normally keep 
aloof from the high street 
stores, have formed new 
partnerships and are prepar- 


Juty, Grattan was ac- 
quired by Next, the rising star 
of fashion retailing. The deal 
followed the “amicable 
merger” between Freemans 
and Warehouse, the high fash- 
ion stores company formed by 
Jeff Banks, the designer, a few 
months earlier. 

The first outcome of the 
Freeman s /War eh o use link 
was Bymail, a “specialogoe” 
featuring a collection of de- 
signer fashions. More, a cus- 
tomer could now phone for a 
catalogue, order clothes by 
phone and charge them to her 
credit card. 

Both developments were 
radically different from tra- 
ditional mail-order catalogue 
business methods, based on 
conservative products and a 
network of agents serving 
enstomers without hank ac- 
counts or credit facilities. 

The recessionary cutbacks 
in their northern industrial 
heartland have been hitting 
the maQ-order companies hard 
since the early 1980s. Then- 
collective performance has 
been less buoyant than that of 
the rest of the retail sector 
after a boom period in the 
1970s when »wbm 1 workers' 
wages were streaking ahead. 

The Instant success of 
BymaO accelerated action by 
the other maO-order houses. 
Great Universal Stares, which 
claims more than 40 per emit 
of this sector of the tradd, has 
now devised a collection of 
clothes aimed at a specialist 
youth market and a direct-sell 
catalogue. The Next/Grattan 
team is understood to be 
considering an even more ex- 
tended range for its first joint 
catalogue next August 

Grattan, which has suffered 
a drop in market share since 
1980 but still has 500,000 
agents on its books, has 
already explored the specialist 
market fa dothmg with cat- 
alogues sack as Look Again 
(for the 18-25 bracket) and 
Streets of London (25-45). Its 
partnership with Next is also 
seen as giving an injection of 
style m household goods.

A guide to 
career choice 


Tie surveying profession — which 
usually expects entrants to have degrees 
— is now open to school leavers through 
the Chartered Surveyors’ Youth Train- 
ing Scheme: The scheme, just entering its 
third year, is a winner. Of 33 trainees 
who began last summer, at least 25 have 
found jobs and one 18-year-okl with just 
two 0-4evels is to study for an external 
in Estate Management, 
t on a chilly week in May, 17-year- 
old Charlotte Moore might have won- 
dered what die bad let herself in for — 
surveying a car park is. Abergavenny. 
She was one of 18 teenagers (three of 
them female) spending five days, 
“frustrating because of the weather and 
cars getting in the way”, measuring with 
theodolite the nodes and crannies of the 
windy site down to the position . of hutsi 
pipes, taps and angles. The results had to 
be translated into a measured drawing. 

A few weeks later Charlotte, passed die 
first year of her BTEC exams with merits 
and a distinction on the road to 
becoming an estate agent 
In early August she was awarded £25 
- a token for her achievements by 
Richard Luff, Master of the Worshipful 
Company of Chartered Surveyors. The 
centre! London estate agents, B atty 
Stevens Good, who took her on as a YTS 
trainee, offered her a permanent job. She 
intends to continue training towards 
professional qualifications — a stint 
which could take a decade with day 
release.

Successful junior negotntor 
who gets a kick from selling 


.Still, it only took a year to make the 
transformation from schoolgirl at Roch- 
ester Girls Grammar School, Kent 
(where Charlotte’s capabilities were 
underestimated), to successful junks 
SDtiator who gets a kick out of selling 
properties (and an extra 2 per cent 
commission on top of a wage of £4,500). 

In the past she could not have made 
the grade. The YTS, began in 1984, 
conceived by Alan Gillen, past Master of 
the Worshipful Company. It followed a 
plea from the Lord Mayor then for 
practical solutions to youth 
unemployment. 

Char tered Surveyors are one of the 
modern dosed professional livery com- 
panies in the City, so this altruistic move 
represents % major breakthrough, though 
historically it continues the tradition of 
Gty sponsorship in old-style apprentice- 
ships. The result is that the professional 
body became YTS managing agents, 
opening doors to 16-year-olds with 
substantial barking from the Manpower 
Services Commission. 

After two one-year courses, the scheme 
— in line with YTS nationally — is about 
to become two year's long and the MSC 
bill for 1986-88 win be up to £320,000. 
Sixty trainees are expected to be matched 
with employers this summer and a 
similar number next year. 

Unfortunately, intake is limited to 
Greater London because trainees attend 


the scheme. New ones will be rcc nuied, 
possibly in the north-east, after interest 
from Newcastle. Architects are also 
being asked to join this YTS. Ni 
tjons are taking place with the 
Institute of British Architects with a view 
to matching trainees with practices in a 
yearor two. 

The major snag is that big firms arc 
still resistant, although Knight, Frank & 
Rutley is expected to accqpt a second 
trainee, and Edward Erdman is following 
in its wake. But Richard Ellis has 
withdrawn. Alan GiBett complained at 
the prize-giving that larger firms “are 
totally graduai£-orientat«i and do not 
realize how some of the junior grade 
work could be done splendidly by our 
trainees." 

Another hitch is the small number of 
mis presenting themselves for selection. 
The MSC may have an answer through 
positive discrimination which would 
allow an extra five places, for females. 

Entry into the profession is explained 
in a leaflet called simply Pop into 
Property , written by YTS co-ordinator 
Eleanor Green. She is provided with 
office space by chartered surveyor J. R. 
Eve, who is vice-chairman of the 
the scheme, 
ins, comes with 
specialities — building, quan- 
tity, general practice (related to residen- 
tial mid commercial estate agency work 
and property management). Surveyors, 
depending on their training, can sell a 
flat, manage, property for absentee 
landlords, ' organize demolition and 
refurbishment, supervise contractors 
and see a basic bunding through from 
start to finish. 

So far die has been amazed by the 
quality of youngsters who have been sent 
for interview. Few have been rejected. 
Judging by their progress in surveying, 
many nave not draw as well as they 
should at school. 

Daniel Flint, a 17-year-old Essex lad. 
left school without an O-Ievel, but with a 
dutch ofCSEs. A careers officer, with the 
scheme in mind, introduced him to his 


the porter to help. 
Susannah Lam pi ugh 
shocked them all. 



Backing makes the scheme a 
pioneer among professionals 

With the first year under her smart 
belt. Charlotte is intent on pursuing a 
career, possibly taking the course pre- 
scribed by the Incorporated Society of 
Valuers and Auctioneers. But first rite 
needs to move nearer the office. “1 live 
with my parents in Rochester, that 
means leaving home at 6.20am and not 
getting back until 7.30pm." 

Neil Richardson, 18, travels to build- 
ing surveyors off Oxford Street from 
Orpington- “Before hearing about the 
scheme I had planned to join the police, 
which is why my O-levels include 
government and politics. 1 didn't know 
what a building surveyor did until I went 
to the careers office, but I*d helped my fa- 
ther build our garage. 

“I want to be able to do structural 
surveys, schedules of delapidation, and 
handle a complete renovation job." be 
said. Neil is now learning the skills of 
draughtmanship and structural survey. 

His firm, Sweby Cowan, is taking on 
three additional trainees, one on the 
building surveying sides; the others on 
commercial and residential agency work. 
They have been sold on Neil's abilities 
and the backing which is making this 
YTS a pioneer among professionals.

Moon Madness makes 
his classic mark with 
aristocratic triumph 


U 'J* , aristocracy certainly 
A a high old time of it at 
I ^[Qncaster on Saturday. La- 
! Z® 8 ’ Duchess of Norfolk 
• "^tahed Moon Madness 
- ^^hunsdftobeoneofthe 
1 “ est three-year-old colts 
JB the country when giving 
j ^J ady of the turf her first 
triumph in 50 years of 
gwfing racehorses in the 
4obten Piis St Leger. 

Not to be outdone Lord 
“®lper, her 74-year-old 
“Other, had earlier seen his 
. LOOO guineas purchase. Unde 
Pokey, win his third race in 
succession after a thrilling 
finish tp the Holsten Moravia 
Nursery. “I never had a penny 
on it,” he said, "‘but I made up 
for ft with what I won on 
Moon Madness.” 

In between these two races 
Lord John Fitzgerald bad 
shown that training skills are 
not just the prerogative of 
commoners when saddling up 
Sizzling Melody prior to 
achieving an exhilarating vic- 
tory in the group two Flying 
Childers Stakes. 

John Dunlop has excelled 
himself in his handling of 
Moon Madness, who has pro- 
gressed from winning a 
maiden event at Salisbury in 
May to giving the gifted 
Arundel trainer his fourth 
British Gassic victory.' And 
Pat Eddery's riding of the 
winner was a masterpiece of 
audacity and perfect timing as 
he waited so patiently before 
finding an amazingly trouble^ 
free path to victory up the far 
rails. 

“I had to give the colt a 
chance," he said. “After all, 
he's by Viuges. so we weren’t 
certain that he'd get the trip. I 
know I was lucky to get the 
opening, but he won so easily 
.that we could have gone round 
the outside if he'd got 
stopped.” 

There is no satisfying some 
people. No sooner had Moon 
Madness passed the post than 
commercially orientated crit- 
ics were hard at work denigrat- 
ing our oldest Classic by 
pointing out that the first two 


By Michael Seely 

home were only promoted 
hand i cappers. 

Luckily the truth of these 
matters lies in the records of 
the great races. On Saturday, 
Moon Madness beat Untold, 
runner-up 10 Midway Lady at 
Epsom and subsequently the 
winner of the Yorkshire Oaks 
by six lengths. Swink. the 
winner of the Grand Prix de 
Paris was a further 2 ft lengths 
behind in fourth place. And 
Nisnas, a thoroughly consis- 
tent colt, who was only four 
lengths adrift of Shahrastani at 
Epsom, came in fifth. 9ft 
lengths behind the winner. 
Cash Asmussen, for one, was

in no doubt about the value of 
the form. ^Swink ran his race 
but just didn’t have the class,” 
he said. 

The first inkling that Moon 
Madness might be a St Leger 
horse in the making had come 
after his five-length win in the 
King George V Handicap at 
Royal Ascot and he had 
confirmed that promise when 
beating Kadial so easily at 
Ayr. Then came that puzzling 
performance when he finished 
a close third to Nisnas in a 
slowly-run Great Voltigeur 
Stakes at York. 

On Saturday Moon Mad- 
ness proved that running to be 
totally false, particularly as 
Allez Milord, who finished 
fifth at York, came in last 
Talking about it yesterday, the 
Duchess of Norfolk said: “He 


must have been below par. 
Mandy. the gut who does 
him, said he seemed a bit off 
colour both before and after 
York.” 

The upgrading of the stan- 
dard of the Norfolk horses 
started when La Fresnes, an 

0 u taandingly-fasi two-year- 
old. was bought from Lord 
Derby for 17,000 guineas at 
the December sales in 1962. 
Castle Moon, Moon 
Madness's dam, is a grand- 
daughter of La Fresnes and 
therefore a half-sister to 
Ragstone, the 1973 Ascot 
Gold Cup winner, and a folk- 
aster to Castle Keep. 

“This must surely be an 
encouragement to other 
breeders to show that you 
don't have to spend millions 
to breed a classic winner,” 
Moon Madness's proud owner 
went on. *Tve been on the 
verge of giving up the stud but 
after this Td luce it to go on for 
the rest of my lifetime, at least 

“Moon Madness is so well, 
that he might just run again 
this year,” she concluded, 
“but certainly not in the Arc. 
He'll probably go for it as a 

four-year-old.” 

Luca Cumani has also ruled 
out Europe’s most demanding 
flat race as an objective for 
Celestial Storm. “The race 
represented top Classic form.” 
he said. “I don't think that my 
horse got the trip as well as 
Moon Madness. He might 
possibly go for the Champion. 
But we might wait until next 
year and plan a Commanche 
Run type of campaign for 
him.” 

Untold would certainly 
have finished closer but for 
being hampered when Steve 
Cauthen brought Celestial 
Storm through on the outside 
of the field. “She didn't fire as 

1 thought she would,” said 
Michael Stoute. “ but if she 
hadn't been stopped she might 
have given the second a run 
for his money ” 

Despite the feet that 
Swink’ s intended pacemaker, 
Rosedale, unseated Brent 
Thomson and bolted before 
the start, the winner's time of 



Bering remains 
on course for 
Arc showdown

3 minutes 5.03 seconds was 
still highly creditable. The 
pick of the paddock was Allez 
Milord, whom both Guy 
Harwood and Greville 
Starkey thought failed to stax 

Sizzling Melody’s emphatic 
win certainly paid further 
dramatic tribute to the value 
of the form of the Heinz 57 
Stakes in which the colt had 
finished fifth to MinistreDa. 
“He's done enough for the 
season,” said the trainer, “and 
with this year's top sprinters 
likely to be retired, we’ll have 
a go at that title next year, 
probably starting in the Palace 
House Stakes.” 

Finally, looking forward to 
next weekend. Forest Flower, 
runner-up to Minstrella in 
Ireland, will be attempting to 
get back on the winning trail 
For Ian Balding by taking on 
the colts in Newbury’s Mill 
Reef Stakes, 

• Moon Madness's St Leger 
triumph on Saturday gave the 
colt the distinction of being 
the only horse so fir this 
season to win six times.

Minstrella and Lockton 
lead successful raid 

From Oar Irish Racing Correspondent, Dublin 


Minstrella widened her mar- 
gin of superiority over Poloak 
front a length to 2W lengths 
when they met again in the 
group one Moygbue Stud 
Stakes over six fimkmgs at the 
Cunagh yesterday. 

Pat Eddery attempted to ran 
Minstrella off her tegs hot the 
fast pace he set on ftrionh 
merely served, in the long ran, to 
.simplify John Reid's task in 
getting MinstreUa to settle. 

“Once I got a lead I knew my 
fOlywas going to win for she has 
.a splendid turn of acceleration,” 
Reid said. This revealed itself at 
the distance marker where she 
swept np to and passed Fokmia 
before drawing away. Another 
English runner, Indian Lily, 
finis hed third but never threat- 
ened to get any doser. 
'Mmstrella, trained for Ned 
. Evans by Charlie Nelson, 
started favourite at 9-10. 

The other group one race on 
the programme, the Gamness 
Peat Aviation National Stakes, 

Shipbourne 

should 

complete 

treble 

By Mandarin 

Socfa is the strength in depth 
of Guy Harwood’s stayers this 
season, that seven of the first 20 
in the ante-post lists for next 
month's Tote Cesarewitch are 
trained by him. 

Of those seven. Ostensible. 
Bannerol and Shipbourne — all 
of whom have won their last two 
races — were left in at the four- 
day declaration stage for today’s 
Midland Cesarewitch at 
Wolverhampton with the last- 
named ultimately chosen to 
represent the Pul borough stable: 

Shipbonrnc has shown 
marked improvement to score 
handicap victories over two 
miles at Nottingham and New- 
castle on his latest two starts and 
this progressive colt is fancied to 
further strengthen Harwood’s 
hand for the Cesarewitch proper 
on October 18. 

The son of De De Bourbon 
was ridden by Tony Clark at 
Nottingham ana Walter 
Swinbum at Newcastle but to- 
day he is re-united with Grevflle 
Starkey. 

The veteran stable jockey 
should certainly know he stands 
with one of today’s principal 
rivals as the top weight, Pacto- 
lus, was until recently a stable 
companion of my selection and 
was ridden by Starkey when 
successful at Lmgfiekl Park last 
month. 

Bought by Gay Kmdersley to 
go hurdling. Pactolus will be 
hard pressed to concede 121b to 
my nap. who appears to have 
the greater scope. 

The Newport Stakes has cut 
up badly with all five previous 
winners dropping out at t he 
overnight stage and the way now 
looks open for Dick Hern’s well- 
bred filly NiaotchV* to get off 
the mark. 

By Niniski out of a 
Huntercombe mare, Ninoichka 
shaped well on her only run at 
Doncaster last October and 
should prove too good for the 
well-exposed Poderoso. 

At Edinburgh, my principal 
fancy is Pendor Dancer in the 
Tote Credit Sprint Handicap. 
Trained at Radlea in Hertford- 
shire by Ken Ivory, Feodor 
Dancer has been a model of 
consistency in sprint handicaps 
this summer and produced 
probably his best effort on his 
latest run at Haydock Park 10 
days ago when second to Ardrox 
Lao. 

He holds Lady Cara, King 
Charlemagne and China Gold 
on that form and is a confident 
choice to make his long journey 
payoff. 

Wahiba is fancied to beat 
Drygalski for a second time in 
the Tote Each Way Maiden 
Stakes while Admirals All looks 
to have a straightforward task in 
the Bet With The Tote Stakes. ' 

David Thom, who has an 
excellent, record in sellers, sad- 
dles the lightly-raced Saiyyaaf in 
the Tote Place Only Selling 
Stakes and this son oEThalching 
could spring a sunrise as be 
takes a considerable drop in 
class.

produced a much closer finish 
although all the evidence sug- 
gests that it fefi well below the 
standard of the Mbygfaure. 

Baba Karam dictated the pace 
from halfway and it was only in 
the last few strides that Michael 
Hills forced the Jeremy 
Hindtey -trained Lockton np to 
win by a head. 

Three-quarters of a length 
farther back came Rock 
Chantenr with yet another En- 
glish runner, Morewoods, tak- 
ing the fourth prize. So, in the 
twq group one races, Essglisfe- 
trajned runners carried on fire 
of the eight prizes. 

The relevant running of 
Lockton and Rock Chantenr 
relate very dosely to their 
previous form in England when 
they were third and fifth to 
Shining Water in the Glen 
International Solario Stakes at 
Sandora. 

The disappointment of the 
National Stakes was the only 
filly. Flawless Image- 


Bering came through bis Arc 
trial in the Prix Niel over IK 
miles -at Longchamp yesterday 
with the minimum of fuss. He 
tracked his pacemaker, Arctic 
Blast, until Gary Moore sent 
him to the front IK furlongs 
from. home. 

Bering had only to be.shaken 
up to stride dear for a Z'/Wength 
victory over Malakim. He is 
now >2 favourite for the Are 
with Hills, who quote Dancing 
Brave at 1 1-4. 

Moore said: “Bering blew a 
lot after the race,” while 
Criquene Head, who trains the 
colt, remarked: “He will be spot 
on for the Are- He is a much 
stronger horse now and be 
needed this race. He has always 
had a good temperament but he 
is even more cool and relaxed 
now.” 

Darara won the Trustbouse 
Forte Prix Vermeille by five 
lengths from Rdoy but her task 
would have been much harder if 
the favourite, Lacovia, had not 
broken down when challenging 
early in the straight 

Tbe Prix de Diane winner lost 
second place in the final strides 
and returned lame on her off- 
fore and bleeding from her nose. 
She will not race again. 

Reloy will be trained for the 
Yellow Ribbon Stakes ar Santa 
Anita and her stable compan- 
ion, the St Leger fourth, Swink. 
for the Rothmans international 
Championship at Woodbine. 

Darara's immediate future is 
in the balance. She is not in the 
Arc and the Aga Khan already 
has two probable runners in 
Shahrastani and ShardarL Her. 
connections have until Septem- 
ber 30 to decide whether to 
invest £25,000 in a supple- 
mentary entry. 

Her trainer,' Alain de Royer- 
Dupre, said: “She is a little 


Leading Counsel, who_ had 
made most ofthe running, m tbe 
Prix Foy, also over I Vi miles. 

Patricfc-Louis Biancone said: 
“Mersey is still faL She had not 
raced since May but she will be 
fust right in three weeks time. 
She snatched the race from last 
year's Japanese Derby wnncriii 
the final strides. Sinus Symbob 
was tran s ferred from Biancone 
to Freddy Pialmer four days ago 
and he too will run in the Arc. 

• Big Reef, who was trained by 

John Dunlop earlier this year, 
snatched victory from Esdale rti 
the last stride of the Premio- 
Federico Tesio over nine fur- 
longs at San Siro, Milan, yes- 
terday. Eve's Error (waiter 
Swinbum) had every chance m 
the last 300 yards but could, 
never quite catch the first two 
and was beaten another neck. 
Esdale. who tried to make alt 
was sent over by Jeremy Tree 
but will now join the Milan 
stable of Frank Turner, who 
won the next race, tbe listed 
Premio Mottalciaia, with 
Sheikh Mohammed s 

Lastcomer. 

• Top Guest (Philip Robimson) 
beat another British raider, 
Lundylux (Brian Rouse), by one 
length in the Stockholm Cup 
over 1 ‘A miles at Taby, Sweden, 
yesterday. The winner started 
favourite at 2-1 but Lundylux, 
who- only surrendered tbe lead 
in tbe final 1 00 yards, was a 44— 

] chance. Chaumiere finished 
fifth and Landsld unplaced 
while both British challengers in

A mighty 
presence 
turns the 
red tide 

By David IWiI 

Manchester United^ 5 

Southampton .. i 

R>ur goals of first division 
quality for United on Saturday 
and not one involving Bryan 
Robson. The other was a pen- 
alty and the England captain 
could not claim a hand in tha t 
cither. Bui so inspirational is 
Robson that his presence, for 
the first time in competition this 
season, was enough to restore 
the Red Devils' derring-do. 

The chanting for Ron 
Atkinson's dismissal, which' had 
rung loud against Chariton Ath- 
letic a fortnight earlier, stopped. 
Tlie winds of change have been 
swirling round Manchester but 
Atkinson is now a little farther 
from the precipice over which 
Jack Bond and Peter Lever were 
blown last week by the 
neighbouring county cricket 
dub. 

Talk of lan Botham being 
luted with lucre to Lancashire 
has come too late for Bond and 
Lever but Atkinson's one-man 
panacea could hardly have 
timed his entrance better. While 
Robson had been recovering 
from an operation to have his 
right shoulder pinned. United 
had sunk to the root of the table, 
only one point gained from four 
matches. 

■ Ten minutes gone and a beefy 
challenge to the shoulder by 
Case; Robson plays on, no ill 
effects. Nineteen minutes and 
the first shot of the match, from 
Robson, but Flowers saves. Two 
minutes later Robson untucks 
his shin, to wipe the sweat from 
his brow. United have the 
message and another 1 4 minutes 
on they are 3-1 up. 

. Stapleton goes down, felled by 
Blake: Olsen converts the pen- 
ally. A minute later Clarice 
equalizes, his seventh goal of the 
season, but Davenport runs the 
gauntlet and finds the target 
with a low shot- Barely time to 
wonder whether Shilton might 
have saved it before the score is 
3-1. a classic diving header from 
Stapleton, set up by Siveback’s 
free kick.

FOOTBALL; A NEW RACE OF HIGH-FLYING SUPERMEN ARE STRIKING FEAR INTO AN INCREDULOUS WORLD 

Global voyage to planet Wimbledon 


By Stout Jones 
Football Correspondent 

The nation is already aware of the 
existence of an exclusive band of 
domestic "super league'* clubs. The 
undeniable evidence is to be found 
in the shape of the silverware 
collected by Everton, Liverpool and, 
to a lesser extent Manchester 
United and Tottenham Hotspur 
over the Iasi six years. 

The world should by now also be 
aware of an emerging breed in the 
English game. They deserve to be 
called supermen and die latest 
confirmation of their work was 
beamed live on television to 33 
countries across the globe on Sat- 
urday. The show was staged at 
Plough Lane in South-West London. 

Distant viewers from Iceland to 
Jamaica saw an extended version of 
the long-ball style, brought originally 
to the first division by Watford and 
more recently by Sheffield Wednes- 
day. But Wimbledon take it to the 


extreme, with their goalkeeper filling 
the leading rede. He is their main 
play-maker. 

As well as taking all the free kicks 
in his own half Beasant launches 
almost all of his team's attacks with 
punts that touch the clouds. They 
are aimed towards a land that is 
populated by grants, most of them 
wearing the colours of Wimbledon. 
Such a ploy is unique. It is also 
awkward to combat. 

When the ball eventually drops 
from the skies, Wimbledon fight for 
it with a fiery aggression that borders 
on fanaticism. Anyone entering the 
wild skirmish must protect himself 
with an iron shield of courage. He 
may otherwise be damaged by a 
pointed elbow, a stray fist or a 
studded boot. 

Above all, he must be fit Dave 
Bassett's men have been on Com- 
mando courses and it is not un- 
known for them to go for six-mile 
nins on Sundays. They are prepared 
for the chase and therefore designed 


Hazard saves his best for 
a spiritual home-coming 


to sun their own system within 
which there is neither room nor time 
for decorative skill. 

The outcome is inevitably an ugly 
mess featuring terrifying c ollisio n s. 
Yet Bassett has merely learnt from 
Graham Taylor and Howard Wil- 
kinson, the managers of Watford 
and Wednesday (who are regarded 
by Bobby Robson as among the best 
in the counuy), to make the best use 
of limited resources. 

If he had employed more con- 
ventional methods, Wimbledon 
would not have risen to such 
unforeseen heights. As it is. perhaps 
only a handful of first division -sides 
are equipped to overcome his abra- 
sive warriors. Everton, as they 
confirmed during their 2-1 victory 
on Saturday, are one of them. 

They are talented enough to 

pnnish mistakes (Sheedy, with the 
assistance of Steven, took advantage 
of one after four minutes *nd Sharp, 
with the help of Sheedy, another 
after 62). They, and especially 


Watson, are also brave enough to 
resist assaults that amounted to an 
endless coil of barbed wire. 

Cork equalized during one of 
them and Wise should have likewise 
at the end of another. "He couldn't 
hit a cow's arse with a banjo," 
Bassett said ofhis embarrassing miss 
in front of an open gimi, - and our 
crosses were so poor that the pieman 
behind their goal was in more danger 
than Minims". 

So many of his men lost their 
footing on the sodden turf that he 
thought there might be a sniper m 
the crowd, at 1 1 ,708 the largest ever 
assembled at Hough Lane for a 
league fixture. But the only spectator 
removed by the police happened to 
be no more menacing than a female 
streaker. 

Like her, Wimbledon's moment 
of glory would seem to have passed. 
They are unlikely again to stand on 
the peak, although Taylor is not 
alone in predicting that they will 
finish in the top half of the table. 


Clubs not short of gifted individuals 
or collective spirit will finish below 
them. 

Manchester City are one of the 
more probable candidates and it is 
significant that their chairman, Peter 
Swales, would seem to be preparing 
for the worst. He is expected today 
to start a campaign to reverse the 
plan to reduce the first division to 20 
clubs at the end of the season. 

The bottom is scheduled to 
change but the top already wears a 
familiar look. Merseyside's relent- 
less dominance is blocked for the 
moment only by Brian Gough's new 
team of the future at Nottingham 
Forest. The supermen. merrifulJy, 
are not yet capable of finding a way 
into the "super league".

Tottenham Hotspur ... 1 

Chelsea 3 

From the moment Tony 
Galvin slipped over and put his 
back into spasm during the pro* 
match kick-around, Tottenham 
Hotspur should have known h 
was not going to be their day. 
Besides, Chelsea had already 

craftily established good omens 
by recalling Mike Hazard, five 
years a Spur, for his White Hart 
Lane home-coming. 

If John Hollins, the Chelsea 
manager, was aware just bow 
much of Tottenham is stih in 
Hazard's soul be might not 
have selected him for his first 


and players don't think 1 am. 
And infecllwoukbficareifthe 
manager did think it, so long as I 
didn’t” 

Yet he admits to lacking 
ambition (-1 am what I am"). 
-If Td set my sights higher 1 
could have gone higher. But I 
was unlucky to be at Tottenham 
when two world class midfield 
players were around,” he said. 

There was no one around; 
Hoddle included, of any sab- 
stance to bold back Hazard on 
Saturday as Chelsea secured 
their first win of the season. Not 
after Gough, Tottenham's Scot- 
tish centre back, had hurriedly 
left the field in mysterious 
circumstances after six minutes, 
with blood streaming from a 


me oftbeseasra in place of torn lip that required surgery. 


the iqjured Bumstead. Hazard 
admitted after the game on 
Saturday to feeling happy and 
sad about what he had just done 
to “all my friends here.” 

What he had done was what 
he never did in 91 League games 
for Tottenham: he scored two 
goals. Perhaps Tottenham 
should blame the woman who 


does the washing at White Hart unfairly so. Go 
the fourth goal and producer of I*™. Clu. haH <airi m Hotline- iHTfav that h*» 


die fifth himself, bringing under 
control ’Olsen's cross before 
driving past Flowers, Stapleton 
emerged as man of the match. 
“Frank was brilliant,” Atkinson 
let slip afer saying be would 
single out no one. Perhaps the 
manager will think again about 
Stapleton's weekly contract and 
offer the player the security he is 
seeking. 

Atkinson and Stapleton pm 
United's first win down to two 
main reasons: Robson and luck. 
•“Bryan gives the team 


Lane. She had said to. Hollins: 
. Tell Micky he's not to score." 

That Hazard should save bis 
best performance, since joining 
Chelsea a year ago, for Totten- 
ham,- only added to the irony. 
Hazard refutes that he has been 
an expensive misfit at Stamford 
Bridge. He said: -The manager 


The mystery rook on more 
sinister undertones when an 
angry David Pleat, Tottenham's 
manager, refused to discuss the 
incidenL Tm not prepared to 
say anything. I would if I saw it 
for sure. But some of my players 
saw iL” 

The inference of assault ap- 
peared to be directed at Dixon, 
unfairly so. Gough said yes- 
terday that he bad beaded 
Dixon's elbow. He had remem- 
bered nothing Grom the moment 
he sprinted off the field until be 
arrived at hosphaL Apparently 
he thot^bt he was playing 
against Newcastle United. He 
hopes to be fit for next week. 

His absence left Tottenham as 


disoriented as himself though 
with Roberts moving into the 
back four and Paul Allen com- 
ing rat into midfield, that ought 
not to have been the case. 
Hollins thought that Godden's 
amazing dose range Hf-nlai of 
Waddle was the taming point. 
Nevin twisted Thomas into 
conceding a penalty which Haz- 
ard accepted boldly for a man 
who missed two in a reserve 
game a fortnight ago. 

Despite the efforts of John 
Martin, the referee, to strangle 
the passion from the game by 
rashly booking six players 
(Millar, Speedie, Goddes and 
Spademan for Chelsea; Paul 
Allen and Stevens for Spurs), it 
continued to thrive, particularly 
Chelsea’s smart inter-play. 

Hazard never looked more at 
home than when striking the 
second at the end of a move he 
instigated himself Give ADen's 
goal from a penalty dubiously 
awarded for a trip by Millar on 
Roberts never endangered Chel- 
sea, who wrapped it up when the 
excellent Speedie, victim of a 
few minor assaults himself, hh 
back- with a brilliantly instinc- 
tive p nai which the maligned 
Dixon irrefutably struck home.

The success of Luton Town's 
initiative, however, means that 
it is possible to say with some 
certainty, not only that hooli- 
ganism can be defeated, but that 
the cost of doing so as far as 
domestic league and cup 
matches are concerned could be 
as tittle as £1 1 million. 

There is no doubt, in my 
opinion, that Luton's system of 
computerized turnstiles does 
prevent unwanted visitors gain-

ATHLETICS 

Haringey 
win cup 
; in Coe’s 
absence 

r Haringey added the Guardian 

* Royal Exchange Gold Cup to 
I their league tide by deposing 
, Shaftesbury Harriers, the cup- 
; holders, at a rainstorm-swept 
' Cwmbran on Saturday. In a 
dramatic finish, Haringey won 
four of the last five events to 
snatch the cup by a bare three 
and a half points from Shaftes- 
bury with Wolverhampton and 
Biiston in thind place. 

In the women's contest, for . 
the GRE Jubilee Cup, two 
Commonwealth gold medal 
winners. Joan Baptiste (relay) 
and Sally Gunndl (100 metres 
hurdles), helped Essex Ladies 
retain the title for the third 
successive year. Birchfidd nar- 
rowly dipped Stretford in the 
battle for second place. 

Daley Thompson, wearing 
eye-catching jester's tights, 
turned out for Newham and 
Essex Beagles in both the 400 
metres hurdles, placing fourth in 
52. Msec, and in the sprint relay, 
just failing to catch Haringey's 
Clarence Callender on the an- 
chor leg. 

Sebastian Coe did not pat in 
an appearance for Haringey, as 
advertised, but the North Lon- 
don club had winners in John 
Herbert (triple jump. 16.08 me- 
tres), Henderson Pierre (high 
jump. 2.10 metres) Mark 
Roberson (javelin, 71.60 me- 
tres) and Shaun Pickering (shot, 
16.40 metres). 

Their neighbours. Shaftes- 
bury, had the services of Dono- 
van Reid, though he was 
treading warily in the wet after 
the hamstring injury acquired at 
Cwmbran in the spring. He 
placed third in both sprints. 

Graeme Fell, the Common- 
wealth steeplechase champion, 
who returns shortly to Canada 
where be now lives, won the 
5,000 metres for Newham, leav- 
ing his club colleague, Colin 
Reitz, to set a steeplechase cop 
record of 8min 28-24sec. 

Miss Baptiste held off the 
season's sprint find. Paula 
Dunn, of Stretford, in the 200 
metres (23. ISsec) before anchor- 
ing Essex Ladies to victory in 
the sprint relay. Miss Dunn bad 
earlier set new figures in the 100 
metres of l!.39sec. Miss 
Gunnell's 13.40sec for the hur- 
dles was excellent on a slippery 
trade, holding back as tiie did

Davies sets 
WPGA 
record 

By John Hennessy 

A brilliant challenge by Penny 
Grice- Whittaker brought the 
£20,000 Greater Manchester 
women's professional tour- 
nament to a thrilling dimax at 
Wigan on Saturday. Laura Da- 
vies had begun the day four 
strokes ahead and reached the 
turn in 34, one under par. Yet 
her lead had completely van- 
ished under Mrs Grice- 
Whittaker’s onslaught, whose 
five birdies owed nothing to 
chance or outrageous putts. 

They were still all-square after 
13 boles, when Miss Davies 
again went ahead. Her tee shot 
flicked the trees of the dog-leg 
14th, then, from a deep defl in 
the fairway she held a wedge to 
18 inches. 

Thereafter. Mrs Grice-Whit- 
laker rather lost her immaculate 
touch. She had to chip and putt 
for pars at the next two holes, 
but failed to do so for a birdie on 
the long 17th. 

Still one behind, Mrs Grice- 
Whittaker again missed the 
seen at the last and, with Miss 
Davies safely on in two, she 
went boldly for a chip-in eagle 
from 30 yards away. But the ball 
slipped through the green and 
she wound up with a six. Miss 
Davies, with a 68, four under 
par for the 5 .339-yards Haigh 
Hall municipal course, finished 
on 268, 20 under par. a 
Women's Pro fe ssional Golf 
Association record. Mrs Grice- 
Whinaker, with 67, was three 
strokes behind. 

The play-off among the II 
players who had recorded bird- 
ies at Ihe four long holes in any 
one round was won by Vanessa 
Marvin. The winner's prize was 
a Rover car worth £7,300, which 
dwarfed Miss Davies's prize of 
£3,000.

Sale remain anonymous 
as Nottingham go in 
search of their identity 


Hampshire keep 
• up the style

By David Hands 


Nottingham , 
SaleJL

Nottingham were suf- 
ficiently far north to escape 
Saturday's driving rain; they 
also had sufficient wit about 
,them_to conjure two excellent 
tries m beating Sale by a goal, 
a Vy and two penalty goals to a 
penalty and a dropped goal in 
this John Smith's Merit Table 
AgameatBeeston. 

For long periods, however, 
both clubs looked in search of 
the best game to suit then- 
diverse talents. At this singe in 
the season that may be forgiv- 
able but it was difficult not to 
feel that Nottingham, in 
particular, should have made 
more of their opportunities. 

In their defence they are 
putting together a new half- 
back combination, 

Hodgkinson has been restored 
to siand-off half (though the 
Midland division may still 
want him at full back), and 
Morgan is a newcomer from 
Moderns, the local club; he 
will face a challenge when 
Moon returns from Cam- 
bridge University's invitation 
lour of the Far East (where he 
scored two tries in the 52-3 
win over South Korea). 


Nottingham have a new 
fullback, too, m Byrom, who 
has joined them from 
Worksop and who did not put 
a hand or foot wrong all 
afternoon. His catching under 
intense pressure was superb 
and it was his supporting run 
which put Jones away for 
Nottingham's first try, giving 
them a lead they did not 
surrender. 

Hartley was another to im- 
press at centre — the cutting 
edge which Sale sadly lacked, 
hence presumably Fiuon's 
preoccupation with looking 
for the break himself which 
became so predictable dial 
Nottingham's bads row were 
waiting for him with open 
arms by the end. Nor were 
they disrupted by the loss, 
with a gashed eyebrow after a 
collision with Man tell, his 
captain, of Hughes which will 
put his out of tomorrow’s 
game with Northampton. 

Twice . in the first half 
Hartley slashed through Sale's 
midfield but blotted his copy- 
book the second time when he 
threw an appalling pass with 
two men free. He more than 
made, up for this by spinning 
and dummying his way 
through a cloud of Sale for- 
wards before sending Moore 
sprinting for the line from 30 
metres. 


Many questions

Unseasoned weather pre- 
vented this John Smith merit 
table match from realizing any- 
thing like its potential A large 
crowd waited patiently tn 
drenching ram and numbing 
cold for entertainment and 
enlightenment, but they were 
not forthcoming. Bath, who are 
marginally the better team, de- 
served victory by two penalties 
to one, and Leicester have not 
won at the Recreation Ground 
since 1979. 

However, key individual 
questions were not answered: 
underwood v Trick on the 
wing. Halliday v Dodge at 
centre and Simpson v Richards 
at No 8 all ended unresolved. 
Although there were 11 inter- 
national backs at the start, they 
had few opportunities in a game 
dominated by mauls and driv- 
ing forward play. 

The outstanding player on 
either side was Robinson, Bath's 
flanker and captain of the 
Loughborough tide which won 
the UAU championship last 
season. Although not a particu- 
larly big man, Robinson is last, 
strong and apparently ubiq- 
uitous. His speed in support and 
to the loose ball combined with 
the solidity of Hall, allowed 
Simpson to show his paces going 
forward: yet Richards in a more 
defensive role was not outshone. 
Cronin also looks a useful 
discovery in the lineout, where 
Bath have not been strong. 

A sickening injury to Palmer, 
the Bath captain last season, at 
the end of the first half also cast 
a shadow. Palmer lay un- 
conscious In a corner after 
denying a try to Youngs and the 
game was halted for 16 minutes

Orrell pack power 


By Gordon Allan 

London Scottish— 
Orrell 


Orreirs game plan succeeded 
at Richmond on Saturday. Play- 
ing into the wind and min in toe 


first half they devoted them- 
selves to containment. In the 
second, they used their big pack 
and the big boot of Robert and 
Ainscough, their half backs, to 
translate pressure into winning 
points. 

They beat London Scottish in 
this John Smith's Merit Table A 
match by a try and two penalty 
goals to a goal and a penalty. 
Scottish led 9-3 at the interval 
but it was plain that this might 
not be enough in the conditions. 

On a dry day there could have 
been a different result - how 
different depends on where your 
allegiance lies. Scottish won a 
foir amount of the ball despite 
the sue of the opposition, but 
failed to stop Orrell spending 
most of the second hair going 
forward like a swarm of giant 
bees in their black and yellow 
stripes. Orrell's territorial 
advantage when they had the 
weather to help tjhcm was 
significantly greater than when 
the Scots had it. 

Mitchell kicked a penalty for 
Scottish and Langford replied 


with one for Orrell a minute 
later. Beazley scored the Scot- 
tish uy when, from a scram, a 
kick to the corner by Mitchell 
caught the Orrell defence too for 
forward. Mitchell converted 
from a long way oul 
O rrell scored their try ten 
minutes after the break. 
Ainscough hit a post with a

Ltsa Bellinger, who reached

Jleichley yesterday . The

Rating Surrey’s Jane Barelia 21- 
18. 21-9 in die final. 


The left-arm spinner John 
Childs and middle order bats- 
man Alan Lifley were both 
awarded their county caps by 
champions Essex before the 
start of Saturday's match against 
Glamorgan at Chelmsford. 
Childs . who joined the county 
two years ago from Gloucester- 
shire . has taken 89 wickets this 
season m helping Essex lift their 
third title in four years. 


to the scene. Fortunately it 
proved that Palmer suffered 
heavy bruising to the neck but 
no break. 

Bath missed his goal-kicking 
in the second half when his 
replacement. Janes, and Cue 
foiled with five penalty attempts 
between them; apparently 
Barnes has the equivalent of the 
golfer's twitch. Hare also feu 
short with two for Leicester, bat 
from more difficult range, and 
bis penalty just after the interval 
was the only score in the second 
halt 

If this was not a great 
advertisement for Leagues, it 
did justify the old equation that 
poor conditions plus two well- 
matched teams equal caution 
and stalemate. Any doubts 
about Bath's ten-man methods 
are not shared by Hill the 
captain, who believes in win- 
ning. Yet it was frustrating that 
so little was seen of Bath's fine 
backs, and their rare sorties 
usually broke down through 
over-elaboration. 

Ironically. Palmer spumed 
the best chance of a try in the 
opening minutes when he ig- 
nored a double overlap on the 
left. In the second half Bath tried 
only one zhreequancr move- 
ment. but there was a knock-on 
before the ball reached Trick, 
the same old story for this 
speedy winger who was making 
a surprise return.

have ended level in the hook-

Nottingham led 9-3 at half- 
time, a certain frustration 
creeping into their play as they 
conceded more than three 
times the number of penalties 
awarded against Sate. They 
looked uncertain of what they 
were doing wrong and, in a 
game where the laws should 
suit their upright style of play. 

I have some sympathy for 
them. Nevertheless 
Hodgkinson banged over the

Recovery 
by Ulster 
squandered 

By Ian McLanchlan 

Resolute Scottish defence and 
over-elaboration on their 
opponents' line cost Ulster 
dearly as they fell by 21 points to 
20 to the South of Scotland at 
Riverside Park. Jedburgh. 

The Sooth started well with 
two incisive runs by Dods 
causing the visitors a problem. 
Paxton and Tukalo scored tries 
at 16 and 32 minutes respec- 
tively. the latter from an Ulster 
heel plundered by LaicHaw. Both 
were converted by Dods. 
Brown, the visiting out-half; 
replied with two penalties to 
make the half-time score 12-6 in 
favour of the home team. 

After the break, however, the 
Ulster forwards stepped up a 
gear and put the opposition 
under fierce pressure in every 
phase of the game. In only two 
minutes, lrwm broke to give 
Crossan a try. Dods and Rainey 
exchanged penalties before 
Crossan again touched down, 
following up a Duncan charge 
down from a good Ulster scrum- , 
mage drive. 

Rainey then kicked a mon- 
strous penalty from about a 
metre inside his own half to take 
Ulster five points clear. The 
South, however, rallied; Paxum ! 
drove off a short penalty. Deans 
supported, Laidlaw fed Ker who 
danced neatly through the 
remaining defence and just 
made the line. Dods then eased 
his side to victory. 

After the match the South 
selectors finalized their team to 
face Japan on Wednesday and in 
spite of being badly oui-ptayed 
up front have only made one 
change in personnel in the pack. 
There are also two positional 
changes. Campbell is dropped, 
Iain Paxton moves from num- 
ber eight to lock, Jeffrey be- 
comes number eight and Eric 
Paxton, the Kelso flanker, 
comes in. 

It must be said that while 
Campbell is unfortunate to lose 
his place it is equally mysterious 
that Derek White, the Gala back 
row man, cannot find a place in 
this team.

Put in to bat, Lancashire had

Gosforth possessed the most

by lan Jeffrey, who is coming 
back towards his best form at

converted Hale's try. David 
Johnson opened the scoring 
with a penalty for Gosforth. 

Broughton Park made several 
changes for ibeir Northern

did well to hold them for most 
of the game, losing by two goals 
to two tries and three p e n alties 
(17-12).

Lucases lead way 


By John Watson 


The final of the Fiat Challenge 
Trophy for the open section of 
the Guards Club's autumn tour- 
nament was decided at Windsor 
Great Park yesterday, and saw 
some of the best team work and 
spectacular stick play witnessed 
on English grounds this season. 
Lord Milford Haven's Brent 
Walker defeated Rackenfoid 
Park over four ebukkas by seven 
goals to five. 

The presence of Brent 
Walker's Lucas brothers, de- 
ployed opposite their aunt, 
Claire Tomlinson, who was 
RadeenfonPs No 3, added 
considerable interest to this fost 
and open dueL The empathy 
between the New Zealand COdy 
Forsyth and the Lucases was 
Brent Walker's winning factor. 
In particular William Lucas, 
who contributed four goals, 
looked appreciably above his 
four rating. The scoreboard said 
6-3 wben the last cfaukka opened 
bat Brent Walker’s advantage 
was reduced try two fine penalty 
conversions . from Howard 
Hipwood's mallei. 


ATHLETICS 


The second set-to. which was 
for the Hat handicap trophy, 
was won by John Yeoman's 
side, Southfield, with a 4-3 
victory against the Centaurs, 
who started two up on handicap. 
Whereas Southfield deployed a 
nicely balanced squad, strongly 
centred on Alan Kent and 
Martin Glue, the Centaurs 
fielded two gladiat or*. Paul 
Withers and Patrick 
Churchward, and two tyros.

triumph 

Cumberland lifted their fort 
major honour when they be- 
came the 1986 Minor Counties 
cham pions with a two-wicket 
victory over Oxfordshire rt 
Worcester yesterday (Michael 
Berry writes). In a match ex- 
tended over two days because of 
the intervention of rain on 
Saturday, they dismissed 
Oxfordshire for 166 and then 
got home on 169 for 8 with just 
one ball to spare.

Nottin gh amshire and North- 
amptonshire had the best of 
what generally had been a poor 
cricketing day on Saturday, 
when the County Champion- 
ship squelched into the last 
round ofmatches^af which two, 

those between Hampshire and 
Lancashire at Southampton and 
Somerset and Derbyshire at 
Taunton, foiled to make a start 
That win have been irksome 
for Hampshire, to whom bonus 
points and 16 more from a 
victory could bring a substantial 
financial reward.

A light aircraft carrying a 
ffJSMT “Keep Bothun. 
R «*ards and 68111 * 7 ” flew 
over the field during the tea 
interval yesterday in this John 
flayer League match, which, 
inevitably, was loaded with 
emotional tension. The Big 
Three all had a i nm d in 
Somerset's victory, which was 
followed by the crowd swarm- 
ing on to the field and 
shooting support in front of 
the pavilion for the players in 
dispute. 

A Tannoy announcement 
confirmed that there would be 
an extraordinary general 
meeting in late October and 
added: “This is a members’ 
club and it is the members 
who will decide whether they 
agree or disagree with any 
committee decision." 

Somerset's target was 208 
and in true storybook style it 
was Botham and Ri char ds 
who put them on the right 
path to reach it. These two 
added 64 in nine overs, a 
stand marked by fierce but 
controlled stroke-making. 
Botham hit two sixes over the 
square-leg fence before he was 
caught in the same place and 
departed waving his bat at the 
crowd and pointing it to the 
committee balcony. 

Richards hit six fours as he 
made SS from 59 bails and 
then played on against Jean- 
Jacques. Gamer hit a six 
before he was run out and 
Marks and Dredge finally bad 
to steer Somerset home. 

To arrive at the County 
Ground in mid-morning and 
find an elephant sitting in a 
lorry was an eariy reminder 
that this was no ordinary end- 
of-season game between two 
teams in the middle of the 
table. The elephant, one Lola, 


By Richard Streeton 

from Canterbury Zoo, who is 
four years old and weighs one 
and a quartertons, has nothing 
to do with what might prove 
to be the Big Three's final 
appearance together for 
Somerset. 

Lola is involved in 
Botham's Hannibal-stylewalk 
across the Alps in February, 
1988 in aid of leukaemia 
research. She has to be men- 
tioned. though, if only for the 
surprise her arrival must have 
given the gateman. Lola was 
later driven to Botham's home 
nearby for publicity filming. 

The day's emotion got prop- 
erly under way when Botham, 
Richards and Garner arrived 


Roebuck, the Somerset cap- 
tain, had an injured thumb. 

Richards, the vice-captain, 
chose not to be burdened with " 

the leadership, so Marks led »*■“■'****' 
the side and chose to field 
first Derbyshire reached a KM-S: 
creditable total, thanks to ‘ 
Barnett, Roberts and Hill, but 
whatever they made it was 
probably never going to be 
enough on this particular day. 

The Big Three, of course, 
were cheered in everything 
they did. Garner bowled with 
typical economy, though the 
last ball he delivered was 
sliced for six by Warner. It was 
an ironic finish for someone 
whose steadiness in one-day 


within two or three minutes of cricket has been legendary. 


one another. A 300-strong 
crowd, waiting in the players' 
car park, spontaneously 
clapped and cheered as each 
man walked to the adjoining 
pavilion. 

About 5,000 spectators 
meant a slightly smaller Sun- 
day crowd than usual here. 
There were, however, addi- 
tional police present, their 
first duty being to deprive 
people as they arrived of any 
banners they carried in sup- 
port of the sacked players. 

Two or three, though, were 
smuggled in and the subtlest 
message read “Big Bird Not 
The Crowe" - a reference first 
to Gamer’s nickname and 
then to the New Zealander 
who is replacing the two West 
Indians. 

During the tea interval 
many in the crowd gathered in 
front of the pavilion and 
cheered the Big Three when 
they came on to the balcony to 
watch the aircraft and its 
streamer. Les Botham, the 
player's father, also gave inter- 
views criticizing the club's 
recent action. 


Botham at short mid-wicket 
took a marvellous catch to his 
right to end Barnett's stay. He 
bowled loosely but did have 
Warner missed twice in his 
last over. Richards, too, was 
punished but raced around the 
boundary edge like a teenager.

Essex secure second place 


CHELMSFORD: Essex (4 
pts) beat Glamorgan by seven 
wickets. 

Essex, John Player Special 
League champions of the last 
two years, secured second 
place and £9,500 in 
prizemoney for this season 
through comfortably beating 
Glamorgan yesterday. 

An opening partnership of, 
98 in 22 overs between Hardie 
and Gooch who made 61, was 
the feature of their victory. 
The ground staff did well to 
ensure the match started on 
time. This is a fast-drying 
ground but a lot of rain fell 
here on Saturday. The dis- 
appointment - for television 
viewers in particular — was 
that Glamorgan hardly gave

Once again the Essex 
bowlers shared the wickets. 
One of their strengths is that

Greg Norman continued his 
astonishing year by walking 
away with more than £100,000 
after beating Ken Brown at the 
find extra bote of a sudden 
death play-off for th.e 
Panasonic European Open at 
Sunningdafe yesterday. 

The Australian has now 
won $885,000 in prize 
winnings alone this year 
though he was compelled to 
work hard for this victory as 
Brown produced an exciting 
finish to complete a final 
round of 67 and draw along- 
side Nor man (66) on the 11 
under par 269 mark. Bernhard 
Langer, of West Germany, 

. took 68 for third place on 271 
with Severiano Ballesteros 
< (65), Jose-Maria Olazabal (66) 
and Nick Faldo (68) sharing 
fourth place two strokes far- 
ther back. 

Norman, who has now 
moved to die top of the Sony 
World rankings list, appeared 
to have given the advantage to 
Brown at the first extra hole, 
which measures 494 yards, 
when he pushed his drive into 
the rough. But he played a 
superb second shot into the 
heart of the green and Brown 
left bis approach just short of 
the putting surface. Brown 
chipped up to within 8 feet 
from where he needed to hole 
to keep the match alive after 
Norman had safely two 
putted. The slender English- 
man was composed enough to

back away from his putt and 
joke “Hasn’t it gone quietT 
But he then left his effort 
short. 

Brown and Norman ex- 
changed the lead on no fewer 
than five occasions during an 
afternoon of high drama with 
Langer the most persistent 
pursuer. Faldo was repeatedly 
betrayed by a matter of indies' 
on the greens and he could 
never get in a significant blow. 

The rain-delayed third 
round had been completed in 
the morning, without any 
further mishaps, and Brown 
(68) squeezed into a share of 
the (rad with Howard Clark 
(671 who later faltered. 

Brown, however, started in 
style in the final round with an 
eagle three at the first (494 
yards) though be immediately 
gave one shot bade at the next 
which enabled Norman to 
overhaul him by driving the 
green at the third (296 yards) 
then holing from only three 
feet for an eagle two. : 

a was dealt 

a severe blow at the fifth. The 
West German, like Norman, 
had begun the afternoon two 
strokes in arrears but he closed 
on the leaders with two birdies 
in the first three holes. But he 
pushed his approach to the 
fifth green into a bush then 
squirted the ball into a bunker 
and took another three shots 
to get down fora six. 


langer persevered through 
to the end but he was unable to 
elbow his way back into the 
front line. Brown regained the 
lead with a birdie at the sixth 
but Norman, out in 32 and 
playing in the match ahead, 
'followed a birdie at the ilth 
with another at the 14th to 
edge two shots in front. 

Brown now discovered the 
inspired touch on the greeds 
which so often in the past has 


fifth defeat in their opening six 
games of the season 37 year- 
old Turner's three-year con- 
tract was terminated with 12 
months still to run. 

The parting was immediate, 
anticipated and totally ami- 
cable, with Dong Ellis, chair- 
man, paying tribute to his 
young ex-manager’s integrity 
and Tumer speaking warmly 
of the club he had just bepn 
sadly forced to leave and its 
“supportive” chairman. 

Hlis commented: “the de- 
cision has been readied with 
great reluctance because of his 
qualities as a man. I have 
never worked with anyone of 
such honesty and intosrity.” 

Turner had been unlucky to 
have such injury problems, 
Mr Ellis added, emphasizing 
that the dub were already 
considering “various 
possibilities” as a replace- 
ment - 

Turner arrived at Villa Park 
in August 1984 from his post 
as player-manager of Shrews- 
bury Town and with limited 
qualifications for the massive 
job he was undertaking, that 
of revitalizing a club which 
had recently won the first 
division, the European Cup 
and the Super Cup under Ron 
Saunders and Tony Barton. 

Acknowledging this he com- 
mented last night: “When I 
joined VflJa I knew I bad to 
aim for the very top. To be 
average would not be enough.

At the long 14th he missed 
the green on the right and the

£450.000) and Neale Cooper 
(Aberdeen, £350,000) never 
even began to be matched by 
performances. Spurs' Clive 
Alien hit them with three go^s 
at Villa Park on opening day 
of the season and they never 
recovered. 

Cooper, the Scottish under- 
21 defender, has been out 
injured since pre-season but 
that alone has not explained 
the horrendous defensive fail- 
ures - 

It did not help Turner’s 
cause, either, that Sieve 
Hodge, their World Cup star, 
chose to ask for a move on the 
eve of the Forest game. Atten- 
tion will now be focused on 
whether a new manager can 
persuade him to stay. 

Ron Wylie. Turner’s coach, 
is expected to figure in a new 
managerial set-up. 

• The manner of Forest's 
devastating destruction of 
Villa, even allowing for the 
glaring inadequacies of Gra- 
ham Turner's beleaguered 
men, provided the clearest 
evidence yet that Brian 
Clough could soon be back in 
business in a big way. 

It is 10 years since Cough 
last led Forest to the League 
championship to precede the 
start of a glorious gallop across 
Europe. But all the signs at the 
moment are that the. man is 
once again mixing a very 
special brew, which given time 
to ferment, could provide him 
with his most potent force yet.

seven cost Cough not a bean.

He added “I never shield

Fein show Green wins

John Feaver, tournament 
director of the Silk Cut inter- 
club championship, suggested 
daring yesterday's final at 
Queen's Club that a sponsored 
inicr-city league might raise 
Britain's modest competitive 
standards. 

The former Davis Cup 
player proposed a nucleus of 
eight a ties playing one-day 
matches every Sunday, the 
teams including two local 
players and one or two guest 
celebrities with experience on 
the international circuit 

Feaver believes that such a 
competition, already success- 
ful in West Germany and 
elsewhere, could revitalize 
British tennis in much the 
same way as the one-day game 
has popularized cricket Alan 
Mills, whose refereeing duties 
include Wimbledon and the 
Silk Cut event described the 
scheme as “an exciting idea". 

Shirley Park (Croydon) beat 
Southpoit Arayle 2-1 in

dramatic but anti-climactic 
finish: a foot-fault by the best 
player on court Jeff Draper of
