on a spying charge. The 
Kremlin is likely to present 
new ideas later inis week. 

The sign of movement fol- 
lowed two days of talks be- 
tween Mr George Shultz, the 
US Secretary of State, and Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the So- 
viet Foreign Minister, during 
which both sides agreed Tha t 
conditions do exist for a 
superpower summit but that 
the continued detention of Mr 
Daniloff remains an obstacle. 

The Soviet Union is likely 
to ask for a further meeting 
this week between Mr Shev- 
ardnadze and Mr Shultz to 
seek progress on the Daniloff 
affair while they are at the 
United Nations General As- 
sembly in New York. 

Mr Shultz said yesterday 
that he will agree to further 
talks if the Soviet side has 
ideas for a solution. He noted 
that Mr Shevardnadze had 
asked him in their talks on 
Friday and Saturday if he 
would be willing to meet again 
at the UN.

a productive two days of talks 
between Mr Shultz and Mr

As expected, they did not 
seek io establish a date for a 
summit There is a sense here 
that the Kremlin is now more 
enthusiastic about an early 
summit than is the White 
House. 

“1 think it is most unlikely 
that you could have a fruitful 
meeting in the conditions that 
we have today," Mr Shultz 
said on television yesterday. 
“It seems that what we must 
do is get this (Daniloff) case 
settled before you have an

significant arms agreements. 

He is expected to outline the

made to Mr Gorbachov in a

East and West in 
historic arms pact 

From Christopher Mosey, Stockholm 
Stockholm Security manoeuvres involving more 


* * * * * * 


The 

Conference will today finally, 
belatedly but triumphantly 
present to the world an his- 
toric arms agreement between 
East and West, which aims at 
reducing the risk of war in 
Europe. It will be ihe first such 
accord since Salt 2 in 1 979. 

The text of the agreement 
was flashed last night to the 
capitals of aD 33 nations 
involved in the conference 
and a meeting was hastily 
convened for today to for- 
mally adopt zl 

"It’s all over," the chief 
Soviet negotiator, Mr Oleg 
Grinevsky, said with a broad 
smile. “We have an 
agreement." 

The final document from 
Stockholm sets limits on mili- 
tary activities and establishes 
systems of inspection to make 
sure these limits are not 
exceeded. 

Hopes that it would be 
produced last night faded 
because of the technical diffi- 
culties of drawing up the text, 
getting it translated and sent 
to the 35 governments 
concerned. 

Last-minute details worked 
out yesterday included the 
provision that 42 days' notice 
should be given of military 
manoeuvres involving more 
than 300 tanks along with 


than 13,000 men. 

The military activities cov- 
ered by the new agreement 
will be notified by all member 
states each year on November

The evidence to be put 
forward is so sensitive that the 
airline's lawyers are planning 
to ask for the hearing to be 
held in camera. 

The airline has been con- 
cerned for some time that it

revenue from its nine flights a

Hurd will advocate 
anti-terror boost 


By Robin Oakley, Political Editor 
Mr Douglas Hurd, the of terrorist suspects by remov- 
ing a supposed political mo- 
for their offence 


Home Secretary, is to press 
Britain's Common Market 
to redouble their ef- 


partners 

forts against terrorism at an 
emergency meeting this week. 

He is to chair a meeting in 
London on Thursday of the 
Trevi Group of interior minis- 
ters and security chiefs, called 
at the request of the French 
Government, where Britain 
will press for tighter visa 
controls, a wider agreement 
on extradition of terrorist 
suspects and increased scruti- 
ny of diplomatic bags. 

Mr Hurd will try to per- 
suade his counterparts in 
other slates to seal their 
borders with non-EEC coun- 
tries more effectively. There is 
particular concern about ter- 
rorists sfipping-irifo Europe 
through Greek ports and arc- 
ports. 

The meeting has been called 
following the recent wave of 
terrorist attacks in Paris, but 
Britain, as the country cur- 
rently in the presidential chair 
of the Common Market, has 
been pressing for more -con- 
certed moves to combat ter- 
rorism. In particular Mr Hurd 
wants to see greater co-opera- 
tion in some countries be- 
tween their foreign and in- 
terior ministries and a wider 
exchange of intelligence infor- 
mation on terrorist activities. 

Mr Hurd will also urge all 
Britain’s European partners to 
ratify a Council of Europe 
convention which smoothes 
the way to easier extradition 


live for their offence as 
grounds for denying their 
extradition. 

Following a report by the 
Commons Foreign Affairs Se- 
lect Committee, which recom- 
mended the scanning of diplo- 
matic bags to prevent the 
smuggling of weapons, the Bri- 
tish Government ruled out 
routine scanning but said it 
was ready to scan diplomatic 
bags on particular occasions. 

This system has now been 
in operation in Britain for 
some months. Where it is de- 
cided that there are sufficient 
grounds for scannings diplo- 
matic bag a representative of 
the embassy concerned is con- 
tacted and allowed to be 
present If the country refuses 
to have the bag scanned it has 
to be sent back. Mr Hurd is 
expected to commend this 
example to his European 
colleagues. 

There will be unprecedent- 
ed protective measures for the 
anti-terrorist meeting at the 
Queen Eliza berh Conference 
Centre, close to the House of 
Commons. An attack on such 
a gathering would be a major 
coup for terrorist organisa- 
tions. 

Whitehall would not com- 
ment yesterday on reports that 
a unit of the Special Air Serv- 
ices regiment has been stand- 
ing by to help the French 
counter-terrorist effort.

New Leeds fans ban sought 


By Ian Smith 

Demands for the immediate 
reintroduciion of a ban on 
Leeds United supporters 
attending away games were 
made yesterday after 
Saturday's incident at Brad- 
ford when hooligans came 
within seconds of causing a 
repeat of last year's Bradford 
stadium disaster in which 56 
people burned to death. 

The Football Association 
ban was lifted two weeks ago 
on the advice of the Associ- 
ation of Chief Police Officers 
which believes police can 
control crowds better if they 
are not all-iickei games be- 
cause the ban meant frustrated 
fans caused trouble in town 


centres after being tinned 
away from grounds. 

The FA chairman, Mr Bert 
Miffichip, who favoured 
continuing the ban, said 
yesterday that' the ban’s 
reimroduction would be dis- 
cuss ed this week by the FA’s 
executive committee. 

Leeds directors were also 
anxious that the ban, imposed 
12 months ago after a Bir- 
mingham supporter was 
stabbed to death, should re- 
main. Last season only Leeds 
shareholders, season ticket 
holders and official members 
of the supporters dub could 
buy away game tickets. 

The Leeds chairman, Mr 
Leslie Silver, last night called 


for its urgent reinstatement. 

On Saturday, a gang of 
Leeds supporters nearly 
tipped over a fish and chip 
van on a walkway high above 
the Odsel Stadium and engulf- 
ing a stand holding 7,000 fens 
in blazing fat. 

As the gang were chased off 
by police, fat from the rocking 
van tipped onto the grass and 
started a fire which covered 
the ground in dense smoke 
and sent 13,000 spectators 
stampeding in terror. 

Thousands of fens, many 
screaming hysterically, spilled 
on to the pitch and the referee 
was forced to lead off the 
opposing teams, It was 23

Whitehall 
angry over 
book claim 

By Oar Political Editor 
Whitehall officials and En- 
ergy Secretary Mr Peter 
Walker reacted angrily yes- 
terday to claims in a book by 
Sir Ian MacGregor, the former 
chairman of the Coal Board, 
that Mr Walker had been 
lukewarm in the struggle 
against Mr Arthur ScargiU and 
the NUM during the miners 
strike, with the result that the 
dispute was prolonged. 

Ministers and officials 
counter-charged that it was 
Mr Walker who had had to 
stiffen the resolve of the NCB 
chairman during the dispute 
and Energy Department of- 
ficials described some pas- 
sages in the book, 
provocatively entitled “The 
Enemies Within" as “total 
fiction". 

Mr Walker and Sir Ian have 
already clashed personally 
over the book. The former

farewell drink last Wednesday

Rail crash 
site being

By a Staff Reporter 
British Rail engineers yes- 
terday started repairing the 
junction destroyed in Fnday’s 
train crash at Colwich, Staf- 
fordshire, which killed one 
person and injured 72. The 
cause of the accident is not yet 
known, but details should 
emerge at a formal BR inquiry 
m Crewe tomorrow. 

Investigators are still at the 
scene rifting through the 
wreckage, which by Saturday 
night had been cleared on to 
an adjacent field. Tests were 
carried during the weekend 
out on the locomotives and 
signalling equipment and all 
employees involved have 
been interviewed. 

All that is known is that the

CBI urges action to curb drug abuse at work 


By Thomson Prentice 

Science Correspondent 

The growing epidemic of 
drug abuse has infiltrated 
Britain's offices and factories 
and problems of addiction 
stretch from the shopfloor to 
the boardroom, the Confed- 
eration of British Industry 
warns today. 

The CBI says the problem 
must be tackled promptly and 
urges employers to draw up 
policies to deal with staff who 
arc addicts. It has produced 
detailed guidelines for ife 
*’50000 member companies, 
who employ half the nations 

workforce. . 


j 


The document, “Danger - 
drugs at work ”, has been 
produced in association with 
Turning Point, an agency 
specializing in drug and al- 
cohol abuse. 

“We have to recognize that 
this is a frightening and grow- 
ing problem that threatens the 
health of our workpeople and 
die productivity of our 
companies," Sir .Alex Jarralt 
chairman of the CBI employ- 
ment policy committee, says 
in a foreword to the guide. 

Mr Keith McDowafl, dep- 
uty director-general of the 
CBI. said yesterday:“There 
may be a tendency among 


Drug users are spending £200 
million or more each year in 
London alone, according to 
estimates of die drug market 
which will be released today.

companies to believe that drug 
addiction doesn't affect them. 

What we all have to accept is 
that this problem doesn’t stop 
at the factory gates or the 
office door." 

Companies need expert 
help to deal with employees 
who take drugs and should be 
prepared to contact advice 
agency doctors and special- 


ist clinics, and send staff for 
treatment Job security should ■ 
be protected during such treat- 
ment as it would be for other 
health problems. 

“All staff need to be en- 
couraged to report early signs 
of drug use in colleagues,"ihe 
guide says. The risks of 
mistakes and accidents at 
work as a result of drug taking 
are now far greater, according 
to the CBI documem_“A 
woman overdosing on tran- 
quilizers can do less harm On a 
typewriter than at a computer 
terminal. A man ‘stoned’ in 
charge of an automated plant 
will cause vastly more damage 
a man at a single lathe." 




The cost of alcohol-related 
problems to British indi 
has been estimated at £1,7 
million a year. “Drug misuse 

is growing fester, and we do 
not know ns true extent," says 
the CBI. 

Sacking a drug-taking em- 
ployee is not a solution, the 
guide warns. It could result in 
a complaint of unfair dis- 
missal. and probably will lead 
to the employee taking the 
problem to another firm.

Steel is 
defiant 
over 
Polaris 

By Philip Webster 
Chief Political 
Correspondent 

Mr David Steel, the Liberal 
leader, prepared to meet his 
party critics on defence head- 
on yesterday by declaring that 
he would maintain an in- 
dependent deterrent after Po- 
laris went out of service. 

On the eve of the Liberal 
assembly in Eastbourne Mr 
Steel appeared to be on a 
collision course with some of 
his MP$ and activists after 
making clear that he would 
give no ground to opponents 
and, in the eyes of some of 
them, moving even closer to 
the position of Dr David 
Owen, the Social Democratic 
Party leader. 

He upset some of his col- 
leagues by interpreting the 
decision of the Liberal assem- 
bly in 1984 to put Polaris into 
East-West disarmament nego- 
tiations as implying that the 
deterrent would be 
maintained. 

Mr Michael Meadowcroft. 
Liberal MP for Leeds West, 
said last night that Mr Steel 
was mistaken. “It was not the 


Rodgers* message 2 

So little time 12 

Leading article 13 


spirit of the 1984 assembly to 
maintain any independent 
British deterrent," he said. 

In tomorrow's assembly 
debate on defence Mr Steel 
will be seeking his party's 
support for the compromise 
reached by the two parties' 
joint commission which left 
open the question of whether 
Polaris should be replaced, 
and for the efforts of himself 
and Dr Owen to reach an 
agreed nuclear deal with 
France. 

But delegates arriving for 
the assembly last night were 
tabling amendments which 
would have the effect of 
moving the Liberal position 
further away from the 
possibility of replacing 
Polaris. 

Three of the party's MPs, 
Mr Simon Hughes, Mr Archie 
Kirkwood and Mr 
Meadowcroft, were associated 
with a move to commit the 
parties to the objectives of 
reducing and ending nuclear 
confrontation. 

Mr Steel interviewed with 
Dr Owen in the BBC 
telelvision programme. This 
Week, Next Week, appeared 
to be closer to the SDP leader 
on defence than ever before. 

Asked whether Britain 
should retain nuclear weapons 
Mr Steel said; “The answer is 
that we have got that capacity 
now. We will retain that 
capacity until such time as it is 
negotiated away." 

But when he was asked what 
would happen when Polaris 
rusted away Mr Steel said that 
be would maintain iL 

Mr Steel appeared confident 
of winning tomorrow's votes. 


My war 
against 
Militant 
-by MP 

The chairman of the 
Merseyside group of Labour 
MPs is today named as a 
messenger for Militant at 
Westminster. 

In his forthcoming book. 
Hard Labour, Mr Robert 

Kilroy-Silk. MP for knowsley 

North, discloses how his fel- 
low Liverpool MP. Mr Bob 
Parry, offered him the can- 
didature for a neighbouring 
Conservative-held seal if he 
allowed himself to be replaced 
in Knowsley by the leading 
Militant. Mr Tony Mulheam. 

“If*, however. "I caused a 
public row, I would be black- 
listed as well as do- selected". 
Mr KJIroy-Silk recalls in the 
first of five extracts from his 
book which are being pub- 
lished in The Times this week. 
The decision that Mr Parry. 
MP for Liverpool Riverside, 
presented had been taken at a 
secret meeting at the Trans- 
port and General Workers’ 
Union office in Liverpool. 

Mr Kilroy-Silk's response 
was to call his colleague a 
“creep" which, he relates, 
seemed io upset him. “You’re 
doing Militant’s dirty work for 
it. he added. It was the episode 
which abov e all else led to Mr 
Kilrov-Silk’s determination 



Mr Bob Parry: Was upset at 
being called a creep 

that if he was going to be 
hounded out of his seal he was 
not going to go quietly. 

At the May meeting of his 
constituency party he told the 
tale of the deal, with the 
Militant delegates reacting in 
fifty, - From that moment on 
there was open warfare in the 
Knowsley North constituency 
party. 

The story of that warfare 
and of Mr Kilroy-Silk’s ordeal 
at the hands of the hard left 
because he refused to be what 
he describes as “ a duffel- 
coated. unshaven 

revolutionary" begins today

sand pounds of public funds. 

The two supporters of Mili- 
tant Tendency, Mr and Mrs 
Roger MacKay, were finally 
thrown out of the Labour 
Party last week, on a vote of 55 
to 19, by the general manage- 
ment committee of the Ips- 
wich branch, after a legal 
battle that lasted several 
months and included several 
High Court hearings. 

The couple, who deny being 
members of Militant al- 
though they admit to being 
supporters, had refused to sign 
a statement abandoning all 
activities on behalf of the 
organization. 

Mr Weetch says, in a letter 
to Lord Hailsham, that he has 
had complaints over the grant- 
ing of legal aid to the couple. 

He says they were granted 
full legal aid without any 
contributions on their part, 
although Mr MacKay is a 
deputy headmaster of a local 
primary school 

“My concern is further 
compounded by the feet that 
the plaintiffs have been 

£360m bill 
for legal 


without contribution to ap- 
peal to the Court of AppeaL" 

Mr Weetch says; “This 
seems a doubtful use of very 
scarce public money available 
under the legal aid system, 
particularly when the escabtt- 
mg costs of legal aid have been 
the - subject of much public 
concern." 

He adds that legal aid has 
been refused to constituents of 
his with “more significant 
problems and possessed of 
more slender means". 

Because the couple w ere 
granted legal aid, Ipswich 
Labour Party cannot recover 
its costs — although it has won 
in the courts. 

“Is the system not an ass?," 
Mr Weetch asks the Lord 
Chancellor. “Are the plaintiffs 
to be allowed to _ proceed 
without any financial disci- 
pline for costs at all?". 

Disciplinary action against 
Mr and Mrs McKay was first 
to be considered by the general 
manag ement committee of the 
Ipswich Labour Party in Feb- 
ruary, but the couple obtained 
a High Court injunction to 
stop the matter being dis- 
cussed or disciplinary action 
being taken. 

Three High Court hearings 
followed and an injunction 
was finally discharged. The 
couple failed in an attempt to 
have a second injunction im- 
posed and have now appealed 
to the Court of Appeal

aid change blunders 


Government proposals to 
overhanl die legal aid scheme 
for an officially-estimated £25 
rnOliou will actually cost more 
than £360 million, the Law 
S ociety says today (Oar Legal 
Affairs Correspondent writes). 

In the first detailed costing, 
the society says the proposals 
wSl cut by half die amount of 
time that could be given to die 
public in free legal advice. 

Shortage of cash will make 
the proposals for a new legal 
advice service unworkable, die 
society concludes. It has 
already strongly attacked 
many of the key proposals of 
the legal aid scrutiny report 
published in May by ateamof 
government officials. 

The Government proposes 
that solicitors should no 
longer provide free legal ad- 
vice for many matters under 
the legal aid scheme. It envis- 
ages a network of advice 
agencies which wfll provide 
most advice on civil matters. 

But the society says die £25 
million the Government plans 
to spend on advice centres is 
nowhere near enough. 

Taking as its basis a recent 
National Consumer Council 
report on the number of advis- 
ers needed for local popula- 
tions, the society says the 
conndTs guidance suggests at 
least 18400 more people are 
needed as against 776 pro- 
posed by the scrutiny report. 

It also says the £25 million 
which the Government is to 
spend woald mean only 0.6 
million extra boors of ad rice in 
advice centres.

Railway crash site 
repairs under way 


Compensation for victims 
of administrative incom- 
petence and blunders in the 
courts is called for in a report 
published today (Our Legal 
Affeirs Correspondent writes). 

The report, from a commit- 
tee of lawyers set up by 
Justice, the law reform group, 
says the court system should 
be seen as a public service, 
such as the National Health 
Service, and be more geared to 
customers' needs. 

The committee also ex- 
presses concern at the rel- 
atively low number of com- 
plaints received by court 
authorities. People are un- 
aware of bow or to whom they 
should complain, the report 
says. 

The report stops short of 
recommending that there 
should be an Ombudsman 
with power to review mistakes 
by judges. But it says there 
should be regional watchdog 
committees under indepen- 
dent chairmen. 

The team , which includes 
Sir Denis Dobson QC a 
former Permanent Secretary 
of the Lord Chancellors 
Department, says that the 
Lord Chancellor’s department 
refuses to accept responsibility 
for alleged abuses in 95 per 
cent of complaints it receives. 

One problem, the report 
says, is that administration for 
the courts is split between 
departments. It recommends 
that administration for all 
courts be placed under one 
department, with the Home 
Office relinquishing control 
over magistrates’ courts.

Council in new court threat 


By Marti* Fletcher, Political Reporter 


Lambeth council in south 
London, whose ruling Labour 
group was disqualified from 
office earlier this year for 
wilful misconduct in railing to 
set a rate, is criticized for 
financial mismanagement apd 
inefficiency in a district 
. auditor's report just 
published. 

The report also says that 
past policies of creative 
accounting and deferred pur- 
chase arrangement will make 
it hard for the council to 
balance its hooks this year and 
may lead to legal action 
by the district auditor. _ 

“The council has in my. 


view ignored the reality of the 
financ ial constraints it now 
feces, and in doing so it put 
seriously at risk its-abOity to 
meet thefoture financial de- 
mands which will inevitably 
tf«i psport 

says. 

The disqualified coun- 
cillors, led by Mr Ted Knight, 
were protesting at having their 
spending plans limited by the 
Government's rate-capping 
policy, but the report makes 
dear that the council may 
have lost several million 
pounds through its own short- 
comings and its decision to 
take on the Government. 


Thai conflict with the Gov- 
ernment “seriously disrupts it 
and . distracts it (the council) 
from malting the best use-of 
the resources available to it" 

. the. repos says,... . ..i- . 

.. The, .council had foiled to 
implement the district 
auditor^ earlier recommenda- 
tions - for -rectifying dear 
management deficiencies and 
for substantially reducing 
expenditure without affecting 
services. 

. At the same time it had 
weakened its mechanisms for 
ensuring value for 'money 
from its services by diverting 
key staff to other tasks. 


New student loans plan proposed

It is suggested that the loan

cent of aid cut by the Thatcher 
administration since it came 
' to potter in 1979 and work to 
double assistance oyer 10

trast to the attitude ofthe

Mr Kinnock, who visited

fercudfc'rn Scarborough. 


The challenger for the world 
chess crown, Anatoly Karpov, 
made an amazing comeback 
in the second session of game 
18 on Saturday to score ha 
second consecutive win 
f pinia the champion, Gary 
Kasparov. 

At the start of Saturday's 
'adjourned session experts 
agreed that Kasparov, who 
had rejected several oppor- 
tunities to draw the 18th game 
in the first session and subse- 
quently blundered when un- 
der time pressure, would haw 
great difficulty in holding the 
position. - 

Karpov's active rooks and 
phalanx of pawns on his king 
side overwhelmed Kasparov’s 
misplaced rook on white's 
king rook file and split queen 
side pawns. 

At the close of play on 
Friday night Kasparov's 
pieces were badly scattered 
and Karpov was threatening a 
decisive infiltration via the_d- 
file into white's position with 
the Black rooks. 

Kasparov began the game 
aggressively and his 16th and 
17th moves drew high praise. 
On bis 18th move Kasparov 
launched a direct attack 
against the Black king by 
means of & pawn sacrifice and 
by move 23, white's forces 

tobe ^decisive opdaugh?^ 

' However, at that stage 
Kasparov had only 15 min- 
utes remaining on his dock 
before facing a time forfeit. In 
the face of Karoov’s stubborn 
defence it might have been 
wiser fin* Kasparov to force a 
draw by means of 28, QhS. 

Instead he played boldly for 
a win' but with an ever-de- 
creasing time period left on his 
clock. Meanwhile Karpov had 
astutely kept about 10 minutes 
in hand to surmount the final* 
complication. 

During the time scramble 
Kasparov went badly astray. 
His initiative vanished and 
Black co-ordinated his forces 
for a powerful counter-attack. 
In the adjourned position 


Kasparov used up 13 minutes 
over his sealed 4lstmove. 

The challenger's win has 
brought him within one point 
of evening the score, which 
stands at 9fc for Kasparov and 
8Vfr for Karpov. 

Game 19 will be perhaps the 
most crucial of the match,- as 
with only six games left- to 
play, Karpov is still under 
pressure to win two ofthert in 
order to reg a in his title. 

The next game is scheduled 
for today and there is some 
speculation among experts as 
to whether Kasparov win use 
his last remaining time out to 
put the next game off until 
Wednesday.

Rodgers tells partners^ 


Mr William Rodgers, vice- 
president of the Social Demo- 
cratic Party and a former 
minister or defence, told a 
Liberal Party teach-in on do- 
fence anri disarmamen t at 
Eastbourne yesterday that in a 
nuckar-anned world, a Brit- 
ain that accepted its obliga- 
tions could not contract out of 
its full participatory member- 
ship of a nuclear-armed 
alliance: 

The teach-in was a prelude 
to the key debate on defence at 
the Liberal Party conference 
tomorrow when Mr David 
Steel, the Liberal leader, win 
seek the backing of the con- 
ference for the joint 
Liberal /SDP commission re- 
port on defence and disarma- 
ment which gained so much 
acceptance at last week’s SDP 
conference at Harrogate. 

The Liberal leadership win 
be resisting recent moves by 
several Liberal MFs and by 
Liberal CND to commit the 
party against a replacement 
for the ageing Polaris, and a 
non-nuclear defence policy. 
Yesterday the non-nuclear 
case was put by Mr Michael 
Clark, lecturer in international 
politics at Newcastle Univer- 
sity and a . member of the 
Campaign for Nudear Dis- 
armament. 

Mr Rodgers commended 
the details of the joint polity 
document to. the large audi- 
ence at the teach-ut and 
aigued it was much the better 
course to say that Trident 


should be cancelled and then 
they should consider whether, 
and if so how, Britain's 
nudear weapons should be 
maintained. Trident repre- 
sented overidlL 

Britain's duty, one which 
the Thatcher government had 
foiled to fulfil, was to play a 
full and constructive part in 
ensuring that Britain's voice 
did affect the overwhelming 
imperative of the superpow- 
ers reaching agreement oh 
arms control and dis- 
armament. 

He pointed out that the 
Government, odd as it might 
seem, was catting defence 
spending by 7 per cent over 
three years. That was why the 
Alliance was right to talk 
about cancelling Trident. - 

“There is no way in which 
Britain can maintain hs con- 
ventional responsibilities 
within Nato if we continue to 
spend as much as we are 
committed to spend at present 
on Trident,” be said. 

He considered the Allianoe 
joint commission was right 
when it said the question of 
replacing Polaris was a matter 
to be settled in due course with 
reference to a number of 
objectives. The Alliance .must 
stand for a Britain that re- 
mained . a full participant 
member of the Nato uniatuvi 

Mr Stephen Brown, inter- 
national officer of CND, said 
thaj the SDP defence spokes- 
man, MrTohn Cartwright MP, 
.had. claimed, foat a European 


reduce the crashing firi^ndal 
burden ofTrident In feet, the 
Euro-deterrent project would 
undermine the ‘ cohesfon of 
western Europe by creating 
strains ' between Britain, 
France and West Ge rman y on 
the one hand and the smaller 
western European countries 
on the other. ^ 

. Mra Shirley WillianB, presi- 
dent of the 5DP, said mat if 
non-nuclear meant rejecting 
the idea of the nudear um- 
brella, that would be political 
suicide. She did not think 
many people in either the 
Liberal or SDP parties wished 
to escape from .Nato in terms 
of the umbrella and neither 
did-tiie Labour Party; ” 

Mr Paddy Ashdown, MP 
-for Yeovil attacked Labour 
Party polity bn the removal of 
United States bases from the 
Uni ted Kingdom. He said that 
a policy which said the coun- 
try should benefit from the 
nudear umbrelbbM notshare 
one iota of the risk was not 
only damagmgand dangerous 
but moral cowardice. . 

He thought the visit to 
France by Mr Steel and Dr 
Owen had achieved touch 
more than.’ maity of them 
believed possible^ The 
possibility was opening up of 
being able to achieve greater 
western co-ordination of 
nudear Weapons. ^ - . ; 


Chernobyl 
‘lesson for 
Europe’ 

There should be closer co- 
operation throughout Europe 
about the future of nuclear 
power, Mr Richard Moore, 
political adviser to the liberal 
Group in the European party, 
told the Commission on Eu- 
rope yesterday. - 

- Cosing down every unclear 
station in Britain would do 
nothing to solve the problem 
of nudear pollution, disposal 
of midearwaste or the danger 
of another Chernobyl, he said. 

What was needed, was an 
approach to our European 
partners to explain British 
fears about nuclear power and 
to point out that these islands 
were rich in oil, gas and coal 
which conld form a frame- 
work for a common energy 
policy. 

That would allow a check, 
not an abandonment, of the 
rush, into nudear power. 

“Then we should say we are 
prepared- to discuss the shar- 
ing of our resources. If not, the 
proliferation of nudear sta- 
tions across the Channel will 
go ahead without lei or 
hindrance." 

: Mr Gordon Lishman, 
prospective parliamentary 
candidate for Pen die, said the 
pany had allowed the idea of 
the: European ideal to become 
the. preserve of the worthy. 
They should sec that Europe 
became a matter of im- 
portance, to everyone;

Police plea over 
violence in home 


| - - Better training for police in

olence m called for in a 
Metropolitan Police report 
The report, which is being 
studied by department chiefs, 
conies after research that sug- 
- ,gests official figures seriously 
1 .underestimate the extent of 
; violence in the home. 

The research suggests that if 
wives were prepared to give 
l evidence against their nus- 
* bands in all domestic assaults 
•reported, the total recorded 
‘ -could rise more than tenfold, 

1 from 300 to 4,500 in the area 
. covered by the force. That 
' compares with 19,000 serious 
assaults in all during 1984. 

* As it is, the force is es- 
timated to receive 58,000 calls 
a year on alleged domestic 
trouble of all lands. 

' - The figures were given to 
The Times by Chief Inspector 
Paul Green, chairman of the 
Metropolitan Police working 
group on domestic violence, 
which produced the report

There is no one cause of 
domestic violence, Mr Green 
says. Studies disclose that 
childhood experience is an 
influence; if a boy sees bis 
father beating his, mother, 
there is a tendency for him to 
heat his own wife in the next 
generation. Drink also plays a 
part 

One issue feeing the police 
is whether the wish of the 
victim not to take a complaint 
further should continue to be- 
paramount 

In the past foe wife conld 
not be compelled to give 
evidence against her husband; 
now her evidence can be taken 
into account 

Often there are more deep- 
seated problems between man 
and wife than foe incident 
which gave rise to foe vi- 
olence. One of foe aims of 
better training would be to 
help police become aware of 
special circumstances-.

The conference will be told 
that operations had become so 
vast that money was no longer 
counted but weighed. Legiti- 
mate businesses were used for 
concealing drug money. 

The conference will also be 
told of the problems in Britain 
presented by kidnapping, 
extortion and the contamina- 
tion of food to blackmail big 
companies. 

The executives will be tokl 
of the need for fresh precau- 
tions and the formulation of 
crisis plans. 

‘Lingering 
victims’ of 
burglaries 

' Women victims of burglary 
suffer from shaking, shivering, 
feeb'ng dazed or “unreal” and 
insomnia, according to a study 
by two research fellows of the 
Centre for Criminological Re- 
search at Oxford University. 
Assault victims of both sexes 
suffer similar symptoms (Our 
Home Affairs Correspondent 
writes). 

High proportions of victims 
of many types of crime report 
lingering or lasting effects. 
There is dear evidence that at 
least for several weeks, bur- 
glary, assault and robbery 
have serious consequences for 
many victims, especially 
women. Miss Claire Corbett 
writes in Criminal Justice, the 
magazine of foe Howard 
League for Penal Reform. - 
“Most of the raped women I 
interviewed admitted that 
their partners were not 
particularly effective in 
supporting them. Other re- 
search indicates that longer 
term partnership problems 
are a concomitant of rape.”

Thousands of childless cou- 
ples who spend years in a 
futile search for medical help 
would have more chance of 
becoming parents through im- 
proved advisory services 
rather than the “last resort" of 
test-tube baby techniques, a 
leading specialist said 
yesterday. 

Doctors who try to avoid 
discouraging or disheartening 
couples wi Lh fertility problems 
may merely lead them down 
“a long path of 
disappointment”, Mr Robert 
Winston, director of foe In- 
fertility Clinic -at Hammer- 
smith Hospital, London, said. 

Sex advice 
in church 
inadequate 

The, church is not giving 
young people foe advice they 
need about sex, according to a 
survey of young born-again 
Christians, who say they know 
sex is wrong outside marriage 
— but they have not been 
taught why. 

Nevertheless 83 per cent of 
foe 2,000 people polled are 
still virgins. Some 97 per cent 
of those questioned, aged be- 
tween 16 and 29, believe the 
church does not offer enough 
advice on sexual ethics. 

Two in three criticize their 
local church — mostly Baptist 
and Anglican — for railing to 
give biblically based teaching 
on sex and relationships. 
More than half say they have 
never heard a sermon on a 
sexual issue. 

Nearly two in three single 
Christians think kissing is as 
far as a courting couple should 
go before marriage, just under 
one in three believes petting is 
foe limit, but 99 per cent say 
they believe sex outside mar- 
riage is wrong. 

Most manage to practise 
what they preach — only one 
in six had intercourse before 
marriage. Most of these felt 
“regret and guilt” afterwards. 
Five out of six do not go be- 
yond petting. 


“We can be tempted to offer 
them treatment well beyond 
foe r ealms of what is realistic,’ 
he said. 

Women and their partners 
were prepared to spend years 
of time and large sums of 
money in private duties 
pursuing the dream of a child 
through in-vitro fertilization, 
although 'the treatment was 
seldom successful, he said. 

Mr Winston, a 
gynaecologist and senior lec- 
turer in fertility studies at 
Loudon University, is author 
of Infertility: A Sympathetic 
Approach, published today. 

The Hammersmith clinic 


has delivered about 80 test- 
tube babies in foe past few 
years, but IVF is unsuitable 
for most patients seeking help, 
he writes. “No couple should 
go in for this treatment unless 
they feel strong enough to 
withstand the anxiety 
involved.” 

Mr Winston said yesterday: 
“IVF is the most invasive, foe 
most expensive, foe most 
emotionally demanding treat- 
ment with the least chance of 
success. That really makes it 
foe test resort” \7

Children 
6 cost a 
mother 
£ 135 , 000 ’ 

By Tnidt McIntosh 

A mother with two children 
could lose an estimated 
£135,000 in earnings during 
her working life, according to 
a report on foe latest birth 
trends and costs published 
today. 

Haring a baby has become 
one of the main financial 
commitments that many peo- 
ple will undertake during their 
working lives, foe report. Ba- 
bies And Money , published by 
the Family Policy Studies 
Centre in Loudon, says. 

The estimate of £ 1 35.000 in 
lost earnings is based on 
working patterns and earnings 
of a "typical” woman, who 
leaves a £6,000-a-year full- 
time job to have her first child 
at the age of 24, and a second 
child four years later, return- 
ing to part-time work when 
the youngest child is five. 

Her working career, span- 
ning 10 years part-time work, 
then nine year’s fiill-iime and 
reverting to pan-time work at 
the age of 52. is compared to 
what she would have earned 
had she remained childless 
and worked full-time for the 
same employer until the age of 
54. and switched to part-time 
w-ork until retirement. 

The mother’s overall loss in 
earnings includes £54.400 for 
vears away from employment. 
£48,800 for sboner hours and 
£3X300 for lower rates of pay. 

Miss Jo Roll, the report’s 
author, said foe latest figures 
showed that a single baby is 
likely to cost its parents an 
average of £30,000 in direct 
costs by the time it has 
reached the age of 16. 

“But the cost to its mother 
of giving up paid work in 
order to look after it is much 
greater.” 

An Equal Opportunities 
Commission report this year 
estimated that if the European 
Economic Community's cur- 
rent proposals for “parental 
leave”, for either parent to 
care for children, without loss 
of pay, were introduced in 
Britain, and a woman on 
average earnings was able to 
return to paid work just one 
year early, she would gain 
£9,300 during her lifetime. 

Last year 723,100 babies 
were bom in Britain, nearly 
one in five outside marriage.

Scania have never been tempted to compete on 

cost alone. 

Trying to equal some of today's truck prices would 
mean sacrificing too many of our principles and 
too much of your cost-efficiency. 
Instead of investing over 7% of sales turnover in 
research and development, we might have to cut 
a few comers. Which could mean risking our 
hard-won reputation for absolute reliability and for 

fuei economy. 

Instead of manufacturing our own engines, 
gearboxes, axles and cabs, we might have to 
make do with bolting together bits and pieces 
made by someone less dedicated to precision. 


And instead of maintaining 24-hour international 
Lifeline cover, we'd be forced to trim our support 
services to more ordinary levels. 

True, we'd be able to offer you a cheaper truck But 
i! would probably cost you more to run. It certainly 
wouldn't last as long. And when the time comes to 
sell, the return on your initial investment wouldn't 
be so healthy. 

Scania promise you years of low-cost operation 
And that more than equals a short-term saving in 
the bargain basement.

Crop survey 


Harvest up on last year 


. By John Young 

Agriculture Correspondent 

This year’s British grain 
harvest is likely to total 
slightly more than 24.500.000 
tonnes, according to the third 
and final crop survey com- 
piled by The Times. 

The estimate neatly com- 
plements those made by the 
Ministry of Agriculture and 
the National Farmers' Union 
last week, which were 25 mil- 
lion and 24 million tonnes res- 
pectively. 

Although well short of the 
1984 record of 26.5 million 
tonnes, it is still the second 
highest and a marked 
improvement on last year. 

Because of the huge over- 
capacity in world grain pro- 
duction. bumper harvests are 
no longer seen as a blessing. 
But. as a result of drought in 
southern Europe, farmers are 
enjoying unexpectedly strong 
demand and high prices, and 
consequently very little grain 
is going into intervention 
stores. 

The overall picture is still 
patchy, as harvesting has been 
held up by cold, wet weather 
in late August and early Sep- 
tember. Most of the corn has 
been cut in southern England, 
but it has been very slow m the 
North and Scotland, and a 
Tayside grower had still not 
started in mid-September. 

The general feeling appears 
to be one of relief that it has 
turned out to be a much better 
year than expected “A smile 
has returned to many farmers’ 
faces and their bank managers 


The table below shows the 
expected yields in tonnes a

in Britain compared with the

everywhere as had been fear- 
ed. A Staffordshire reader 
claims that some barfey fields 
suffered a 50 percent loss and 
a colleague in Swaledale, 


North Yorkshire, says walls 
and fences were damaged as 
well as crops. 

A Cheshire man reports that

ments comes from Wiltshire, '

miserable harvest, of very 
variable quality and with a 
high moisture content. But in 
the same county a colleague 
expresses delight with his org- 
anically grown winter wheat, 
which in some fields has 
yielded more than two tonnes 
an acre with no chemicals. 

Oilseed rape has had a 
mixed reception. A Shropshire 
grower reports that it all 
cropped well, even after the 
hard winter, and a Lincoln- 
shire man says results were 
good. 

Potatoes appear to be doing 
well in most areas, and a 
Shropshire grower says they 
could prove to be the saviour 
of the arable man this yean- In 
Cheshire they are reported to 
be harvesting well after a poor 
late start. 

A Devon reader, however, 
describes it as **a terrible year 
for blight,” a complaint which 
appears to be widespread in 
the West Country and in 
South Wales. 

Sugar beet in Norfolk is 
reported to be catching up 
nicely from the late start, and 
a reader in Lincolnshire ex- 
pects an above average crop.

Science report 

Anti-viral agents offer 
clue to common cold 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


,r.i - v 


Research to find a cure for 
the common cohl has moved a 
step further with an investiga- 
tion in minute detail into the 
shape of the virus that causes 
the cold. 

With that knowledge, sci- 
entists believe they now have a 
way or rendering the organism 
helpless, and hence can pre- 
vent the spread of infection. 

The work was done by a 
team led by Dr Michael 
Rossman. of Purdue Univer- 
sity in the United States, who 
last year produced the first 
three-dimensional picture of a 
rhino virus, the best known of 
the cold-causing agents. 

The structure of the virus 
was assembled with the help of 
the latest techniques in com- 
puter graphics. 

With the picture of the 
organism, the researchers 
have pinpointed the spot on 
the outer coating of the vires to 
which anti-viral agents could 
be attached to prevent it from 
reproducing. 

The study nsing human 
rhinovirus provides the first 
glimpse of bow anti-viral 
agents work within the struc- 
ture of a rims. It is hoped that 
understanding may lead to 
new weapons against other 
vira! diseases. 

Dr Thomas J. Smith, a 
scientist on the project, said: 
“By examining in detail the 
taction where these com- 


pounds bind, awl learning 
more about the specific agents 
used in this binding process, 
scientists may be better able to 
target drugs against the virus 
structure-” 

The findings are contained 
in the current issue of the 
journal. Science. In their re- 
port the scientists describe the 
site which is located on one of 
the four virus proteins which 
intertwine to create the 20- 
sided stru ct ure of the comm on 
cold vims. 

Dr Rossman said he used 
two compounds developed by a j 
research group at Sterling 
Drag company. They rendered 
the vires helpless by prevent- 
ing its outside coat Cram 
opening to release its genetic 
material, which in some vi- 
ruses is then bon odeic acid, or 
RN A, derivative of the strands 
DNA, or deoxyribonucleic 
add. which records genetic 
information in the nucleus of 
cells. 

Without RNA to direct the 
synthesis of more viral pro- 
teins, the organism cannot 
replicate and spread infection. 
Dr Mark McKmlay. director 
of microbiology at the Ster- 
Ung-W'infhrop Research In- 
stitute in Rensselaer, New 
York, hopes that the knowl- 
edge of how and where the 
drags interact with the vires 
may help the company to 
develop more effective com- 
pounds.

Tourist Britain 


Many visitors are 
appalled by litter 


In the first of two articles 
Robin Vonng examines the 
shortcomings which the British 
Tourist Authority finds in 
Britain os a tourist destination 
and the urns in which it 
believes the countre "s facilities, 
and attitudes, will have to be 
improved if we arc to realize 
our maximum potential^ earn- 
ings from miter people's holi- 
day-making. 

Last year 14.5 million over- 
seas visitors came to Britain, 
five million more than in 
1975. In real terms the £5.5 
billion they spent here was 62 
per cent more than foreign 
visitors' expenditure a decade 
ago. 

The British Tourist Author- 
ity predicts that by 1992 we 
can expect 20 million visitors 
a year, an increase in traffic of 
more than a third over seven 
y&us. By then it is forecast 
that foreign spending in the 
United Kingdom will be more 
than £10 billion a year, and if 
fere payments to British carri- 
ers are included, the value of 
tourist trade will reach £12 
billion. 

Domestic tourism has not 
shown so much real growth. 
Although the British are mak- 
ing nine million more trips a 
year within the United King- 
dom than they did 10 years 
ago. their duration tends to be 
shorter, and the spending 
involved has increased in real 
terms by only 6 per cent. 






Those, like the English 
Tourist Board, who forecast 
an increase of more than a 
tenth in domestic tourism by 
1992. and spending up by at 
least a fifth, rely partly on the 
belief that of those travelling 
abroad, half do not seek sun, 
sea and sand, but choose areas 
climatically similar to the 
United Kingdom. 

According to the tourist 
authority uie two most im- 
portant areas for general 
improvement are standards of 
serv ice, and liner. Service in 
Britain is too often grudging, 
sloppy, rude, or completely 
lacking, while some foreign 
visitors are appalled to find 
that they are taking conducted 
tours of what looks to them 
like the unkempt rubbish tip 
of Europe. 

We cannot do much about 
the climate, but we could 
clean up the street! the tourist 
authority argues. Similarly, it 
says there should be more 
attention to standards of ser- 
vice. and to service training. 

Investment the tourist 
authority believes, should be 
concentrated in hotels of 
international standard, in key 
visitor centres, and capital 
projects such as sporting, 
health and recreational facil- 
ities in resorts and spas. 
Particular needs it has identi- 
fied are for lower-priced 
accommodation in London, 
York. Bristol and Cambridge.

The clock in the auditorium 
housing the Stockholm se- 
cunty conference has stood 
Rill since Friday to allow the 
first East-West ag reem e n t 
since Salt 2 in 1979 to be 
presented, technically on 
time. 

. Most journalists had been 
jn possession of an unofficial 
but accurate outline of the 
Stockholm final document, 
thoughtfully supplied by the 
American delegation, since 
what was Saturday every- 
where else in the world, and 
the main provisions had been 
common knowledge for more 
than a month. 

It was fine detail that held 
up the drafting, numbers 
mostly, concerning soldiers 
and tanks, and questions such 
as what navigation control 
observers of military activity 
could have over inspection

travelled.

The breakthrough pact 


The six main points in- 
cluded in the final document 
agreed at the Stockholm 
conference: 

Notification — Countries must 
give 42 days' advance warn- 
ing, with detailed informa- 
tion, on all military ground- 
based exercises involving 
more than 13,000 troops or 
300 tanks. 

Observation — The member 
slates will invite observers 
from other nations to man- 
oeuvres of ground forces 
involving more than 17,000 
troops. 

Verification and Inspection — 
Any nation doubting an- 
other's adherence to the 
Stockholm agreement has the 
right to make a ground and 
aerial inspection of the mili- 
tary exercises in question. No 
state needs to allow more than 
three inspections a year. 
Members of one military alli- 
ance may not inspect each 
other. An inspection must 
take place within 36 hours of a

New rules 
planned for 
US pilots 

From Ivor Davies 
Los Angeles 

Alarmed by reports that 
mid-air near-collisions are 
commonplace, almost daily, 
events in the skies over south- 
ern California, the Federal 
Aviation Administration plans 
to get tough with private pilots 
who violate airspace, and re- 
quire die nation’s major air- 
lines to install new collision- 
avoidance equipment on large 
passenger jets. 

The flurry of activity over 
the safety in the sides of 
California and other parts of 
the United States comes in the 
wake of the mid-air collision 
on August 31 between an 
Aeromexico DC 9 jet and a 
small private plane over the 
community of Cerritos, which 
resulted in more than 81 

Over the weekend, the FAA 
administrator, Mr Donald 
Engen, said that, after years of 
discussion and development, a 
sophisticated technology to 
warn pilots of potential col- 
lisions is now ready. 

Until recently, the FAAs 
policy had been to support a 
voluntary approach to the use 
and development of the expen- 
sive collision-avoidance equip- 
ment However, it may be 
years before the airborne sys- 
tems actually go into use on 
hie jets. . , . 

Id California this weekend, 
FAA officials said they would 
also step up efforts to identify 
and punish private pilots who 
violate the heavily-tr avelled 
and regulated airspace around 
Los Angeles airport. 


Calendars — Each state will, 
by November IS each year, 
exchange a calendar of mili- 
tary exercises being carried 
out in Europe within the 
following calendar year. 

Constraints — Countries must, 
by November 15 each year, 
give two years’ warning of 
exercises using more than 
75,000 troops and one year’s 
warning of manoeuvres with 
more than 40,000. 

Non-use of force — The mem- 
ber slates reaffirm their 
commitroent to refrain from 
the threat or use of force 
against the territory or politi- 
cal independence of any state, 
in accordance with the Final 
Act of the 1975 Helsinki 
accords and the UN Charter. 
The right of selfdefence is 


which proved the biggest 
stumbling block to reaching a 
final agreement 
The United States originally 
insisted on the inspecting 
country supplying its own 
aircraft. When this was strenn- 
ousty resisted by the Soviet

his Zanu (PF) party’s Central 
Committee for proposals to 
incorporate into the ruling 
party the country’s main black

Reagan halts farm 
aid to Nicaragua 

From Paul VaBely, New York 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


Senior ministers from the 
West and the Soviet bloc meet 
at the headquarters of the 
International Atomic Energy 
Agency in Vienna this week to 
agree a series of measures to 
make nuclear power safer. 

The conference follows a 
meeting of technical experts 
last month at which Russian 
scientists and doctors pre- 
sented the. fin dins of an 
inquiry into the Chernobyl 
disaster. 

The details have been stud- 
ied by a team of safety 
specialists in America and 
Europe, who will propose an 
international scheme of safe- 
guards against accidents and 
exposure to radiation. 

Mr Peter Walker, Secretary 
of State for Energy, who leads 
the British delegation, said 
yesterday that the meeting 
would play a vital role in 
creating an international 
safety regime. 

He was optimistic because 
of the frank manner in which 


the Soviet Union had placed 
on record the mistakes at 
Chernobyl The Russians had 
admitted important design 
faults in their reactors, he said, 
as well as recognizing en- 
gineering failures and consid- 
erable human error, including 
the flouting of safety 
instructions. 

Mr Walker said there must 
be an efficient mechanism, 
organized by the agency, to 
provide a proper safety re- 
gime, inspection of nudear 
reactors, a total exchange of 
information and early warn- 
ing of any potentially dan- 
gerous incident. 

He said the Nudear In- 
stallations Inspectorate was 
reviewing safety procedures in 
Britain following tire Soviet 
revelations. 

Improved training and 
safety standards for staff will 
be at the top of the agenda this 
week. It is dear that the 
operators at Chernobyl did 
not realize the risks when

A shipment of seeds, hoes 
and other ag ric ult u ral prod-

projects in Nicaragua has been 
blocked by the Reagan Admin- 
istration, officials at Oxfom 
America said yesterday. 

The White House has in- 
formed the US charity that its 
$41,900 (£27300) aid package 
had been prohibited because 
“such transactions are in- 
consistent with current US 
foreign policy”. 

The ban is evidence of a 
growing boldness within the 
Government in the steps it is 
prepared to be seen to be 

taking n garnet the Sandinkta 

Government since Congress 
authorized the $100 mUBon 
aid package to the Contra 
rebels. 

“It is a very worrying 
development”, said Mr John 
Hammond, Oxfom ’s executive 
director. “We sent almost 
exactly the same shipment last 
year to the same two bodies — 
a cfaarch group called Mnttiple 
Services, and the Agricultural 
Mechanization School There 
was ao objection then. 

“Unofficially, Oxfom has 
been informed that the aid was 
unacceptable because the 
school was an official govern-

Traditional 
ways best 
for Africa 

From A Correspondent 
Harare 

Africa should look more to 
its own traditional methods, 
its own animal species and its 
own food crops to beat recur- 
rent droughts and hostile 
world economic forces, ex- 
perts said at a conference here 
last week. 

Mrs Gro Harlem Bru- 
odtland, the Norwegian Prime 
Minister, chaired the sixth 
meeting of the World Com- 
mission on Environment and 
Development, which is pre- 
paring to report to the United 
Nations General Assembly on 
tire mounting crisis over natu- 
ral resources, particularly in 
the Third World. 

At a series of public bear- 
ings in Harare, Mrs Brun- 
dthffid and 20 fellow-com- 
missioners were given first- 
hand reports on African 
conservation problems. 

They also visited Zim- 
babwe’s Eastern Highlands, 
where soil is being stripped off 
overcrowded communal graz- 
ing lands at a rate of more than 
30 tons a year from each acre. 

Professor Adolpho Masc- 
arenhas of Tanzania, regional 
director of the Conservation 
of Development Centre here, 
gave a warning that blind 
imitation of agricultural ideas 
developed outside Africa fre- 
quently led to disaster. 

East African cattle schemes 
run on American or Austra- 
lian lines had failed, while the 
example of Masai pastoralists, 
who had successfully grazed 
tbeir herds for hundreds of 
years, had been ignored. 

Exotic cereal crops bad been 
introduced when indigenous 
African root crops were far 
more suitable, and cultivation 
of cassava had led to serious 
malnutrition. 

Dr Graham Child, director 
of Zimbabwe’s Department of 
National Parks and Wild Life 
Management, testified that 
the export prices Africa earned 
from conventional farm prod- 
ucts had been dropping 
steadily. 

But while the terms of trade 
for Zimbabwean beef had 
declined by 2 per cent each 
year for the past two decades, 
game species were now able to 
yield nine times the return 
given by cattle in drought- 
prone areas where erosion 
posed the greatest menace. Dr 
Child said. 

Such areas naturally sup- 
ported a broad spectrum of 
browsing and grazing animals 
without a dominant species 
equivalent to cattle, he noted. 

The commission moves on 
this week to Nairobi for 
further public hearings.

with the Enemy Act, a licence ,

“declared enemies”. At | 
present, these indode Viet- 
nam, Cambodia, North Korea 
and Cuba. 

“The irony is that we hare 
been given a general licence to 
export iiwn« of humanitarian 
assistance to Vietnam and 
Cambodia. Yet we are being 
denied permission to give aid 
in Nicaragua, which is not an 
officially declared enemy. 

“We are concerned that a 
double standard is at work 
here. Items which are re- 
garded as h umani tarian aid in 

one area are not in another.

than four months to get a

Government is playing politics

Pretoria 
fuels poll 
rumours 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Speculation about a general 
election for South Africa’s 
whiles was kept on lhe boil at 
the weekend when the ruling 
National Party was told by a 
senior government minister to 
be ready to go to the polls at 
any time, but was not given 
any clear indication when that 
time might be. 

Speaking at a two-day 
Transvaal congress of the NP 
in Pretoria, which ended on 
Saturday, Mr F.W. De Klerk, 
the Minister of National 
Education, said the party must 
start preparing at once, so as to 
■ be “ready for the call when it 
comes.” 

Mr De Klerk, who is re- 
garded as one of the leading 
contenders to succeed Presi- 
dent Botha and belongs to the 
conservative wing of the 
party, was re-elected leader of 
the NP in Transvaal. This is 
an important position as 
Transvaal has the biggest 
representation in the party 1 
caucus. 

The earliest possible elec- 1 
lion date would be towards the 
end of November. An election 
must be announced in a 
Government Gazette. 

One of the arguments for an 
early election is that the i 
international sanctions cam- 
paign has furnished Mr Botha 
with an external threat on 
which to rally white support.

Mitterrand and Chirac 
bury the hatchet in 
face of terrorist threat 


In the spirit of national 
unity emerging since the wave 
of terrorist bombings began in 
Paris two weeks ago. President 
Mitterrand and M Jacques 
Chirac, the Prime Minister, 
hdd a series of top-level 
security meetings over the 
weekend. 

Paris yesterday had its 
fourth day free mm bomb 
auacks, but the "Committee 
for Solidarity with Middle 
Eastern and Arab Political 
Prisoners”, which has claimed 
responsibility for the Paris 
bombings, stated in Beirut on 
Saturday that the attacks 
would continue and would not 
be confined to Paris. 


From Susan MacDonald, Puis

Last week Italian authorities 
requested the extradition of 
Geoiges Ibrahim Abdallah, 
■whom tire “Committee for 
Solidarity” wants released 
from prison in France, to face 
terrorist charges in Italy. 

Abdallah, who is serving a 
four-year term for terrorist 
offences, was moved over the 
weekend from Fleury-Mtirogis 
prison in Essonne to the Santti 
prison in Paris for “reasons of

France hit by visa 
control backlash 


From Our Correspondent, Paris 

The introduction last week Until the 
of visas for entry into France 


for all foreigners, except those 
belonging to Euro pean E co- 
nomic Community countries, 
Switzerland, Liechtenstein, 
Monaco and Andorra, is 
beginning to cause serious 
problems for the French, both 
diplomatically and admin- 
istratively. 

France has underlined the 
fact that these new regulations 
are being enforced on a tem- 
porary basis, initially for a six- 
month period, and that they do 
not replace existing agree- 
ments between France and 
other countries. 

However, several countries, 
both within Europe and out- 
side, have lodged complaints 
over the imposition of visas. 

The Conned of Europe has 
protested against what it sees 
as a discriminati ve action 
against eight of the 21 conn- 
tries in Europe, and Sweden 
has asked for a meeting of 
Nordic countries affected 

France's much-vaunted s pe- 
dal relationship with her C9C- 
African colonies could be 
placed In jeopardy by the visa 


of her allies in West 
Africa, Gabon, has announced 
the retaliatory imposition of 
visas for French nationals 
visiting Gabon, and another 
privileged friend, Senegal, is 
thinking of doing dw same. 

Their fear is that, once in 
place, these temporary regula- 
tions could be difficult to 
dismantle. It is known that for 
some time France has wished 
to tighten op entry procedures 
for certain countries. 

Morocco, Tunisia and Al- 
geria have a separate form of 
control for entry into France 
and the French are finding it 
difficult, despite ministerial 
visits to the three countries, to 
impose visa requirements. 


ginning of Octo- 
ber, visas are being issued on 
arrival in France, and there 
have been considerable delays 
at the frontiers during last 
week, bat after tills dale visas 
most be obtained before 
departure. 

French consulates abroad 
have already been in u n d a t ed 
with inquiries. Foreigners res- 
ident in France, to whom the 
new regulations apply, are now 
©WgM to obtain a re-entry 
visa before travelling abroad. 

It is emphasized that all 
applications for visas and re- 
entry visas are being treated 
individually and some people 
may be eligible for multiple 
visas. The new regulations 
also apply to ffipkmaats. 

AlthiMgh tightened security

difficult to see how the wid-

with M Chirac and the min-

al the Dys& Palace on Friday 
night after his three-day visit 
to Indonesia. 

There was strict security at 
the airport and at the palace,

On Saturday morning M

"South Lebanon Army” mi- 
litia, which is coming under 
increasing attack in the “se- 
curity zone” Israel has estab- 
lished inside the Lebanese 
border. 

A Cabinet meeting here 
yesterday agreed the extra aid 
after hearing a report from Mr 
Yitzhak Rabin, the Defence 
Minister, about the growing 
number of attacks on SLA 
positions by the Shia Hez- 
bollah (Party of God) militia, 
which is believed to be 
funded, trained and supplied 
by Iran. 

White not specifying exactly 


what extra helpis to be given, 
military sources hoe expect 
that substantially in Ore Israeli 
soldiers win be deployed in- 
side the zone to ' stiffen the 
SLA's fi ghting determination. 
In the 18 months- since the 
zone was established, Israel 
has maintained a force of a 
few hundred meninside Leba- 
non. This number could' now 
grow to more than a thousand. 

There wiB also be further 
training and more and better 
weapons for the 2,500 men in 
the Israeli-rappfied 

In the past week the SLA 
has lost 13 men in attacks by 
the Hezbollah on positions 
along the edge of the zone. 
According to SLA sources, 
many of the attackers wore red 
scarves with -the slogan “On 


the way to Jerus al em”, which 
are similarin- those worn by 
Iranian soldiers: 

The escalating violence in 
the bonier area comes at a 
time when Israel has again 
been strongly criticized by foe 
UN for refusing to allow 
Unifil (UN Interim' Fbrce in 
Lebanon) troops to cany out 
their mandate to deploy along 
the border. The Israeli Cabi- 
net refiises even to consider 
this and intends to retain 
control of both rides of the 
border. It says this is the best 
way of stopping infiltration by 
Palestinians and their sup- 
porters. 

Since the “security zone” 
was setup, Israel has said font 
it has . Seen almost “totafiy 
successful in ensuring peace 


inside its northern 'border. 
The Cabinet showed yesterday 
that it is prepared to be lured 
beck into Lebanon in some 
force rather than -risk the 
defeat of its local mercenary 
force. 

.After yesterday's Cabinet 
meeting, Mr Rabin , said the 
extra Israeli assistance wasto 
ensure that "any further at- 
tacks will be broken in a way 
that the temptation 10 cany 
them out again will be lost'* 

- Mr Rabin denied that Israel 
was responsible for the recent 
attacks against Unifil forces in 
tiie area, which he said were 
due solely to an internal power 
struggle between two rival 
Shia groups, Amal and Hez- 
bollah. . 



bitter dispute with Gandhi 


When President Zail Singh 
of India met a group of 
dissident congressmen at the 
presidential palace last week 
another score vfas entered in 
the account beiSg kept of his 
sour dispute with Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, foe Prime Minister. 

The bitterness between the 
head of state and head of 
government has been going on 
since before Mr Gandhi suc- 
ceeded to his mother’s post, 
but with foe end of the 
President’s period of office 
drawing near he appears to be 
more aggressive about main- 
taining his side of the 
argument. 

His apparent intriguing 
with foe opposition is a way of 
reminding the Prime Minister 
that, though he is bound to act 
as a constitutional monarch, 
foe constitution does give him 
some powers and some rights. 

It is also perhaps a way of 
using the remainder of his 
term as a launching-pad for 
renewing his political career 
next year, when be gives up his 
apartment in the grand red- 
and-yellow sandstone pile that 
Edwin Lutyens designed for 
foe British viceroys. 

The delegation that foe 
President met was ted by Mr 
Pranab Mukherjee, a former 
Finance Minister and virtual 
deputy prime minister under 
Mrs Indira Gandhi. It in- 
cluded Mr Gundu Rab, -for- 
mer Congress (I) Chief 
Minister or Karnataka, and 
Mr Prakash Mehrotra, former 
In dian High Commissioner in 
London, and four others, all of 
whom have been expelled 
from the Congress (I) Party 
but who have begun operating 
as “Indira loyalists”.

Trying to head off the 
meeting, a group of 28 Con-

worded statement urging the 
President to uphold the non- 
political character of his high 
office, “and not to be swayed 
by foe distorted facts put

guided- and self-acclaimed

Death toll 
mounts in 
seven-year 
Gulf war 

By Htzhtr Teimourba 
The war between Iran and 
Iraq, which enters its seventh 
year today, has left nearly a 
million dead in Iran alon*$Q 
far, according to Health Min- 
istry officials in Tehran. The 
number of Iranians wounded 
and maimed in the past .six 
years approached 2.5 miUisn. 

The officials, made dear 
their opposition to foe 
Government’s policy- of 
continuing the war until com- 
plete victory is achieved .over 
foe regime of President Hus- 
sein oFlraq. „ • ' 

White it is obvious that the 
rounded figures were es- 
timates, they are widely seen 
as credible and even 
understated. 

All over the Shia Muslim 
regions of Iran, which make 
up the bulk of the country, the 
vast new cemeteries built for 
foe war dead have had to be 
extended constantly, and the 
smaller towns know precisely 
foe numbers of their young 
men who have not returned 
from foe fronts. 

That foe word “ slaughter”, 
often used to describe the 
confrontations between foe 
two armies, was not always an 
exaggeration was made clear 
by a woman from the small 
town of Songhor in western 
Iran. 

"Six hundred men from, our 
town left in February for foe 
southern front to take, part in 


Iraq said yesterday its war- 
planes had attacked a “large 
maritime target”, bettered to 
beanofl tanker, off Iran's Gulf 
coast (AP reports from 
Baghdad). 

The state-run news ageacy 
quoted a military spokesman 
who did not identify the target. 


the battle for foe Fao penin- 
sula in southern Iraq,” she 
said. “Only 20 returned.” 

The Health Ministry es- 
timate of a million dead 
includes civilians Idled - in 
Iraqi bombings of towns and 
industrial establishments. 

According to Mr Hans 
Heino Kopietz of the Inter- 
national Institute of Strategic 
Studies, who recently visited 
Baghdad, Iraq’s dead and 
woemded number between 
400000 and 60CUXXL . 

More than 60.000 Iraqis 
languish in Iranian prisoner- 
of-war camps. Iraq says it 
holds between 10,000 and 
15,000 prisoners. 

Estimating the material 
dppragp suffered by both 
o&mtnes is even more diffi- 
cult At least 40 small towns 
along their 733 miles of com- 
mon border have been dyna- 
mited, or razed by artillery 
fire, and the houses and 
ition systems of at least 
I villages have been 
destroyed. 

One of the world's largest 
refineries at Abadan, and the 
£3 billion petrochemicals 
complex at Bandar Khomeini, 
have been largely written off. 

According to Lloyd’s Reg- 
ister of Shipping in London, 
more than 280 ships haye 
been lost or damaged in foe 
Gulf and foe Shatt al-Arab 
waterway. 

The two countries foe 
thought to be spending be- 
tween £15 billion and £20 
billion on their military forces

Solidarity leaders meet 
to iron out differences 
over strategy for future 


■ Jf ^ a ^ esa ' chairman 

of Solidarity, and Mr Zbie- 
mew Bujak, the bating 

union s underground chief- 
lain, have met for the first 
time since a government am- 
nesty of political prisoners to 
discuss a joint strategy to 
criticize and, if necessary to 
oppose the Polish authorities. 

Mr Walesa and several 
other Solidarity leaders were 
yesterday on a workers' pil- 
grimage in Czestochowa, in 
southern Poland, and contin- 
ued their discussions there. 

The main session was, how- 
ever, in Warsaw, in the bade 
room of St Martin’s church - 
formerly an aid centre for 
political prisoners —and apart 
from Mr Walesa and Mr 
Bujak, there were Mr Bogdan 
Lis _ and Mr Bogdan Boru- 
. sewicz, prominent under- 
ground leaden, Mr Adam 
Michnikand MrJacek Kuron, 
opposition theorists and Mr 
Tadeusz Mazowiecki, an ad- 
viser with church contacts. 

Mr Walesa said tittle. “We 
talked about the new situation 
following the amnesty.*' he 
said. But it is dear that 
Solidarity is trying to over- 
come differences on a number 
of key issues. 

First, should it maintain an 
underground structure at afl. 
Some, including the Roman 
Catholic Church, suggest that

J^oers and other rank-and- workers in 1976, became the

Others say; wait and see turned up at the flat of the

that underground publishers 
will become the target of

The second issue is whether 
Solidarity should lave any- 
thing to do with “social 
consultative councils*’ set up 
by the authorities to provide a 
wider form of consultation 
between the Communist Party 
and other Polo. 

Mr Walesa is camions on’ 
this issue and wants to know 
more about the powers and 
authority of the proposed 
councils. 

The Catholic Church, lead- 
ership seems to .be very in- 
terested, seeing the connate— 
property exploited — as a way 
ofbroadening national debate. 
But many oppositionists, 
including almost all of the 
recently released underground 
leaders, dismissed the coun- 
cils outright

opposition celebrated the 10th 
anniversary of KOR, the

Solidarity doctor examined 
some of the released prisoner, . 
including Mr Czeslaw Biel-

week was on the longest 
strike in recent Polish 
history. ... 

The surprise guest at the 
party was Mr Leszek Moczul- 
ski, chief of the fiercely 
nationalist Confederation for 
Independent Poland. 

■ Mr Walesa, who was meet- 
ing Archbishop Bronislaw 
Dabrowski — a senior church- 
man, who worked behind the 
scenes to manoeuvre the re- 
lease of the 225 political 
prisoners — was tbs only 
member of the Solidarity 
hierarchy absent from the 
birthday party. 

He denied later that this was 
because of a row with Mr 
Bujak. “We understand each 
other better and better," said 
Mr Walesa. “Of course, we 
don't agree on the approach to 
different things, but graerally 
speaking we are at one. There 
are no discrepancies when it

Thousands 
challenge 
Ershad on 
election 

From Ahmed Fazl 
Dhaka 

More than 100 Bangladeshi 
MPs called on President 
Ershad to resign as 25,000 
people demonstrated in the 
centre of Dhaka at the week- 
end, chanting slogans against 
next- month’s presidential 
election. 

The members belonging to 
the Awami League-led. eight- 
party alliance also demanded 
the convening of Parliament 
to debate the current political 
crisis in the country. 

The 330-seat Parliament, 
dominated by the pro-Ershad 
Jatiyo Party, had a brief 
session in July but was pro- 
rogued after the Opposition 
continued to boycott the 
proceedings. 

Demonstrators marched to 
the Baitul Mukanam Square, 
defying a ban on rallies to 
demand an end to the 44-year 
martial law regime. 

“Polls under martial law 
will be meaningless and will 
only legalize the rule of Gen- 
eral Ershad,’* said Begum 
Khaleda Zia, leader of the 
Bangladesh Nationalist Party, 
ousted from power by the 
Army in 1982. 

The opposition parties 
boycotting the election have 
also decided to organize a 
general strike on election day, 
October 15. 

• Press strike: More than 
7.000 journalists and other 
press workers went on strike 
yesterday in support of col- 
leagues dismissed by the 
publishers of The Bangladesh 
Observer and its weekly sister 
paper, Chilrali. closed down 
because of a dispute with 
unions over the introduction 
of new technology. 

The strike, railed by the 
Bangladesh Federal Union of 
Journalists and the Press 
Workers’ Union, shut down at 
least 20 dailies and the govern- 
ment-controlled national 
news agency. 


Crackdown after Tamil bomb 

^ I 

Police round-up 
in curfew town 


From Vyitha Yapa, Colombo 


Batticoloa, a coastal town in 
Sri Lanka’s Eastern province, 
is virtually a ghost town after a 
car bomb explosion in which 
13 people were kilted and 
seven policemen injured. Ten 
people are said to have been 
shot in the aftermath of the 
blast and 32 are reported still 
missing. 

A curfew was imposed in the 
area on Saturday from 2 pm to 
6 am and separatist Tamil 
guerrillas for ft banal 

(total work stoppage) from 
6 am to 2 pm yesterday. The 
curfew was reimposed from 
2 pm to 5 am today. 

The Citizens' Committee of 
Batticoloa said dozens of peo- 
ple were still missing after last 
Thursday’s incidents, in which 
police are said to have gone on 
the rampage after the bomb 
Mast shooting 10 people 
indiscriminately. 

The committee said that, of 
96 people taken into custody 
by the police after the incident. 
64 had been released. “No one 
is telling ns the names of the 
32 still under detention and we 
cannot check whether they are 
on the list of missing people," 
a spokesman said. 

In Madras, the Tamil 
United Liberation Front (Tnlf) 
said that 35 people had been 
killed by the security forces on 
Thursday. 

The Minister of National 
Security, Mr Lalith Athulath- 
nradali, was quoted in a gov- 
ernment-controlled newspaper 
yesterday as saying: “Tnlf is 
engaged in an exercise in 
arithmetic. It has multiplied 
the citizens’ committee figure 
by three and a half.” 


A resident of Batticoloa said 
that about 15,000 acres of nee 
are ready for harvesting but 
people are afraid to go into the 
fields. He said fighting be- 
tween the security forces and 
Tamfi guerrillas in the second 
week of September had re- 
sulted in more than 10,000 
refugees. The guerrillas have 
blasted bridges and railway 
tracks during the past two 
weeks in an attempt to disrupt 
communi cations and troop 
movements. 

Meanwhile, Palipane Chan- 

drananda, the chief priest of 
one of the country's three most 
powerful sects of Buddhist 
monks, told a mass rally in the 
hill capital of Kandy that stern 
action would be taken by the 
Buddhist clergy if the Govern- 
ment went ahead with plans 
for devolution through the 
creation of provincial councils. 
He said provincial councils 
were not asked for or wanted 
by the majority Sinhalese. 

The chief priest criticized a 
promise made to Tamil nego- 
tiators by the Government to 
withdraw the security forces 
from the troubled Northern 
and Eastern provinces. 

The leader of the Sri Lanka 
Freedom Party, the former 
Prime Minister, Mrs Sirima 
Bandaranaike. said at the 
meeting (hat it would be a 
national tragedy if the provin- 
cial council Bill was passed. 
She said that MPs must be 
compelled not to vote for the 
Bill, which President Jaye- 
wardene plans to present to 
Parliament after the next 
round of talks with Tamil 
representatives. 


More blasts hit Batticoloa 


Colombo (Reuter) - A se- 
ries of bombs planted by 
Tamil guerrillas rocked Bai- 
ticoloa yesterday soon after 
the Government reimposed a 
curfew. 

Residents said the blasts 


were to warn people to heed 
rebel orders to stay indoors. 
No one was injured. 

A government statement

Nakasone apology 
soothes Seoul 

From David Watts, Tokyo 

Japan attempted to patch 
up serious diplomatic damage 
and hurt feelings with an 
apology by the Prime Minister 
in South Korea at the 
weekend. 

Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone flew 
to Seoul specially for]a two- 
day visit, which was billed as 
support for South Korea at the 
opening of the Asian Games. 

But the real reason was to 


try to mend deteriorating 
relations, at their lowest point 
in raanv months, after com- 
ments by Mr Masayuki Fujio, 
later dismissed as Education 
Minister by Mr Nakasone, 
that South Korea was partly 
responsible for its annexation 
and colonization by Japan 
from 1910. 

A South Korean trade defi- 
cit which could reach $6 
billion this year, and the 
perennial problem of the sta- 
tus of Koreans in Japan, are 
also constant irritants between 
the two neighbours, who seem 
unable to get away from being 
the “best of enemies". 

At one time the bouin 
Koreans were threatening to 
call off the first regular meet; 
ing of the two countries 
foreign ministers after Mr 
Fujio's opinions were pub- 
lished in a magazine ^ inter- 
view. But Mr Nakasone s swift 
dismissal of him seems to 


have satisfied Korean honour. 

Mr Nakasone expressed his 
profound regrets to President 
Qmn Doo Hwan during a 
meeting at the weekend, and 
said the Government took a 
serious view of. the former 
ministers comments. 

But as many Koreans as 
Japanese know that Mr Fujio 
was merely voicing views 
widely held in the right wing 
of Japan’s Liberal Democratic 
Party. 

So if the immediate dip- 
lomatic crisis- is over, it is 
unlikely to be so qniddy 
forgotten at the private level 
as yet another gratuitous in- 
sult for South Korea from 
people who regularly appear 
in opinion polls as their least 
favourite nation. 

As part of his efforts to 
make amends, Mr Nakasone 
wem straight to the national 
cemetery in Seoul to lay a 
wreath at the tomb of the 
Unknown Soldier. 

At their second meeting 
yesterday, Mr Nakasone told 
the President that Japan, 
would make a modification of] 
its finger-printing system to 
try to ease tensions over the 
issue among Koreans in Japan 
who have to undergo fin 
printing, even though 1 _ 
may have been bom in Japan 
and speak fluent Japanese.

THE 




SPECTRUM 



SEPTEMBER 25, 1985 


¥ our reselection wilt take 
place on Tuesday, Dec- 
ember 10,” Peter Kil- 
leen told me over the 
phone today. As assis- 
tant regional organizer of the 
Labour Party in the North West, 
tie was reporting on his meeting 
with my constituency manage- 
ment committee last night. They 
voted to start the mandatory 
reselection process that all Labour 
MPs have to face in every 
Parliament 

At least Peter was positive, if a 
little dramatic. He made it sound 
Bke an execution. There are many 
who hope it will be. 

.' “Why is it taking so long?" I 
asked. I wanted to have the whole 
thing out of the way as quickly as 
possible, and certainly before 
Christmas. My life has already 
been disrupted and made mis- 
erable enough all this last year 
At one time, earlier in the year, 1 
felt inclined to let the Militants 
have their way. I thought that if 
the constituency management 
committee dearly preferred an- 
other candidate. I would accept 
the decision with as much dignity 
and good grace as I could muster 
and quietly step aside. 

■ But now I've changed my mind. 
Uve no intention of going quietly. 
The intervention of Bob Parry, the 
MP for Liverpool' Riverside, 
changed all that. 

• ’.One night in May. just as I was 
a|»ut to vote in the "Aye" lobby 
fn the House of Commons. Parry 
Bad sidled up to me in his hangdog 
fashion. 

.“Bob." he whispered. He 
glanced around conspiratoriaJJy, 
as if to ensure that no one was 
listening. "Can I have a word?" 
lie beckoned me to an alcove. 

~ “I’ve been asked to have a word 
with you, as chairman of the 
group." He coughed. He meant 
the Merseyside Group of Labour 
S4Ps — which did not meet very 
often and the identity of whose 
chairman was unknown even to 
softie members of the group. He 
seemed hesitant I was impatient 
ip vote and leave for home. 

“Tve a . . He looked round 
again. “I've been asked to offer 
you a deal" I listened, first with 
incredulity, then amazement, and 
finally with a mixture of anxiety 
and anger. 

What the "deal" amounted to 
was that I should reconcile myself 
to the “feet" that I would not be 
reselected for my Knowsley North 
seat but be replaced by the 
Militant supporter and president 
of Liverpool Labour Party. Tony 
Mulheam. That, he said, had 
already been "decided". However. 
iCl went quietly and there was "no 
fuss". I could have the can- 
didature for the neighbouring, but 
Tgry-held, West Lancashire cons- 
Muency. We should win this seat 
$t' the next election, he said, 
especially if I were the candidate, 
as it was composed of a large pan 
of my old Ormskirk constituency. 

If, however, I refused to accept 
"reality" and caused a public row. 
1 would find myself blacklisted in 
West Lancashire and elsewhere, as 

Extracted from Hard Labour: The 
Political Diary of Robert Kilroy- 
SUk, to be published by Chatto & 
Wind us on September 29 at £9.95. 


T his offer of a "deal" 
made me determined to 
fighL It was a decision 
strongly endorsed by my 
wife, Jan, and later by 
Neil Kiniiock. A few weeks after 
the encounter with Parry I offered 
Neil my resignation from the front 
bench Home Office team. T 
thought that it might be more 
damaging for the party if a front- 
bencher were seen to be in conflict 
with his local party. Neil insisted 
that I siay. 

At my May constituency meet- 
ing 1 delivered a short statement 
about the “dear. I told them I 
would fight with all the strength at 
my disposal, and that I expected 
their support. I did not, however, 
name Parry. My main motive, I 
admit, was to ensure that the story 
ran in the Press a few days longer 
than it otherwise would have 
done, while the hunt for the 
messenger took place. But I 
remember feeling also that I ought 
not to divulge his name because he 
had spoken to me in confidence. 

Immediately 1 had finished my 
statement there was uproar That’s 
what Pd anticipated. But you 
would have expected, wouldn't 
you. that the bitterness and the 
anger would have been directed at 
the conspirators and their mes- 
senger boy. Not a bit of it The 
normal rules of civilized behav- 
iour don't apply when Militant is 
in control. Their fury and abuse 
was directed at me. Indeed, those I 
knew to have been supporters of 
Militant were the loudest and the 
crudest in their condemnation of 
me. And for what? For not naming 
Parry. I felt as though 1 had just 
been mugged and on reporting the 
matter to the police had been 
rewarded with a hard kick in the 
guts. 

From that point, however, they 
no longer pretended tbat they were 
not engaged in an atiempt to have 
a Militant, or someone who would 
dance to its tune, representing 
Knowsley North. Throughout the 
summer a state of open warfare 
existed in the constituency party, 
with my management committee 
clearly divided between the pro- 
and anii-Militants. 

Not being political fanatics, my 
supporters do not attend meetings

I n 1983, Robert KHroy-Silk lost his Ormskirk 
constituency to the Boundary Commission. 
Three years later he found he had lost his new 
seat, Knowsley North, to the Militant 
Tendency. In between he had been under 
siege. Militant used Labour’s hew mandatory 
deselection procedures and old-fashioned intimida- 
tion to gain control of a seat with a 17,000 Labour 
majority. “They want a different kind of MP,” he 
“told a close friend early in 1985. “They want a duf- 
fel-coated unshaven revolutionary who’ll spend 
jnostof his time at the end of a megaphone on every 
"conceivable demonstration and who’d wallow in idle 
glamour and notoriety of being arrested oh a picket 
■fine. That’s not me. And I’m not prepared to be like 
that.” Kilroy-Silk’s diary of the weeks when the 
battle was at its height presents a frightening first- 
hand picture of how Militant works on Merseyside. 
In the first of five extracts, he reveals how the* 
extraordinary offer of a deal by a fellow MP made 
him determined to fight back.

well as deselected ib Knowsley 
North. 

All this, apparently, was 
"decided" — he kept using the 
word — at a secret meeting at the 
Transport and General Workers* 
Union office in Transport House, 
Liverpool, following a caucus of 
the so-called “broad left" that 
chose Mulheam to be their 
candidate. 

Mulheam's interest is no secret. 
He's after a seat wherever it might 
be found. He was at one time 
active in trying to replace Frank 
Field in Birkenhead. He foiled. 
Indeed, he was on the short list 
when I was selected for Ormskirk 
in 1973. He. put his head in his 
hands and cried when told that I 
had won on the first ballot and 
that he had received only one 
voie. 1 

Bob Parry seemed upset when I 
called him a creep. 

“You're doing Militant’s dirty 
work for it’’ 1 added. “You're just 
as bad as they are. Well, you can 
tell them there's no way that I'll go 
quietly. There'll be a God-fid- 
mighty row." 



as diligently as the Militants do, 
but when they do attend they have 
to brazen out an aggressively 
hostile atmosphere, endure being 
hissed at, heckled and jeered every 
time they speak. At times they are 
even physically intimidated, el- 
derly women as much as the men. 

.The way they are treated is, of 
course, one reason why they don’t 
always attend when they should. 
They know they are giving the 
party to the Militants, but it is 
difficult to persuade them to turn 
up on a wet Tuesday evening in 
winter and sit in a cold room to be 
reviled and shouted at by political 
thugs. So a clear field is left for the 
Militants. 

Their position on my manage- 
ment committee has also been 
strengthened by a sudden increase 
in the number of delegates. These 
have been stable ax around'80 for a 
couple of years, indeed longer. ’ 
Now there are 140. 

It's interesting to work out how 
they’ve achieved this. Like all 
others, my constituency Labour 
party is governed by a manage- 
ment committee that usually 
meets once a month, ft is this 
committee that selects the par- 
liamentary candidate and to 
which he or she is responsible. The 
committee is composed of dele-

SEPTEMBER 26 


The last cosple of years have been 
difficult and miserable. I'm also 
concerned about the effect on Jan 
and the children. They pretend It ' 
doesn't get to them, bat it does. 
Out summer was virtually de- 
stroyed by it 

Politically, I'm depressed. I 
keep asking myself why we’re aB 
silent while ScargiU and the mad 
Liverpool Militants present them- 
selves as tbe only face of Socialism 
and the Labour movement Now 
we're in favour of the next Labour 
Government l e gislati n g to renew 
all the cases of the miners gaoled 
doling the coarse of the minors* 
dispute, reinstating those who 
have been sacked and reimbursing 
the NUM for all the money that 
has been confiscated by fines, 
sequestration and receivership. 
It's a nonsense. 

Earlier this week I was in tbe 
garden changing the water for the 
ducks and geese. Something had 
been on the radio about Scargfll's 
attempt to railroad next week's 
Labour Party conference- into 
accepting Ins demands. I was 
angry and frustrated at what was 
happening. I was standing watch- 
ing the- immaculate white geese 
that I'd bred picking the corn from 
the hard ground when Jan arrived. 
She leaned on the wide white metal 
gate. 

“Fra going to make a state- 


ment" I said. I told her tint if I 
didn't speak out I would have a 
heart attack. That is how it feels. I 
actually have a deep burning pain 
in the middle of my chest “This 
ispt what I came into politics for," 
1 said. "I didn't come Into politics 
to support ties and ballying and 
intimidation and law-breaking. 
That's not me." 

"You're sot supporting them," 
she said consolingly. 

"But I am if I don't speak out 
My silence is tantamount to 
appro vaL" 

I let the hosepipe drop and 
leaned on the gate alongside her. 

“All right" she said. “Do it But 
why you? What are all tbe rest 
do fag?" She iwwvH names. 
“They've been reselected. They're 
safe. They can do it firms a position 
of strength. You're the . most 
vulnerable. You've the most to 
lose." 

She's right 

“Ring NeH," she said. “TeU him 
how you feel. He must feel the 
same. He thinks like yon. Tell turn 
to speak oat He needs to know 
that's bow yon feel, and that you’ll 
support him. He probably feels 
isolated too." 

We walked back to the house. 

“Do what you want to," she said. 
“Do what makes you feel best" 

And I've dime nothing. That's 
why they’re winning.

prone to minor depressions, 
but accepted them and even wel- 
comed them the joy she was 
capable of experiencing regularly 
seemed to make them worthwhile 
■ But after three months of sleep- 
less nights unprovoked crying and 
the reeling that life was not worth

professional help and found a 
psychotherapist 

Susan was luckv to have some

Genera] practitioners reckon that 
at least one in 1 2 pauents will have a 
problem which is psychological 
rather than phvsical even if they 
themselves ao not recognize that 
loss of appetite or chronic back pain 
mav be linked to for example their 
mania] difficulties 
Some will talk to their GP about 
the possible causes But the major- 
itv will be prescribed drug treat- 
ment usuallv tranquillizers or anti- 
depressants and nothing else 
People can become as addicted to 
minor tranquillizers as to heroin 
and coming off them can be more 
painful 

• But addiction and side-effects are 
not the onlv reasons for protest 
Drugs offer onlv symptomauc re- 
lief ihev do not solve problems, 
thev do not get to the root of 
depression or anxiety and above all 
(hev do not help people to make 
sense of their suffering and pain 
Treatments such as psycho- 
therapy aim primarily to do that 
Psvchological help is more widely 
available than 10 vears ago but it 
has not swept across Britain as in 
some parts of the l mted States, 
where vou are considered abnormal 
il vou don r see a therapist 
And outside the metropolitan 
areas there is resistance among all 
classes "Talking about your prob-

anyone ai work because 
think I'm a mental case “ 

Such stigma 15 based on fear 
There is the fear of appearing weak 
or pathetic 10 allow feelings of 
depression or anxiety to take such a 
hold “PulLvour-socks-up” therapy 
is sadly frequently doled out by GI% 
or figures of authority like teachers 
There is the misconception that 
psychological pain is not serious, it 
is an excuse and sufferers are 
skiving 

But the greater fear is of madness, 
which haunts people who are de- 
pressed crippled by . a phobia, 
dominated by uncontrollable jeal- 
ousy or just deeply unhappy The 

may reem toconlnii'thatfear ^ 

None of us can live without 
certain levels of stress and anxiety 
But this level can rise to affect 
seriously an individual's life This 
can take the form of chronic 
insomnia a phobia which begins to 
take over or a feeling ofbemg out of 
control and not living life well In 
each case professional help should 
be considered 

Psychotherapy is using people to 
treat other people But unlike 
friendship the goal of therapy is 
eventually to pan The idea is that 
any dependence should be worked 
through and disappear because 
some people find it unnatural to 
build up a reliance on someone who 
is divorced from the rest of their 
life The objective outsider is a key 
to any success which psychotherapy 
may achieve 

“Everything pours out when I see 
my therapist" is one common view 
“I've talked about my childhood 
and my family m enormous detail, 
and (earned to understand 11 all 1 
could never be so amazingly honest 
with a friend or lover I would 
always feel 1 was bonng them, or 
that thev weren't really listening. I 



really do have, to be able to say 
absolutely everything, however 
shocking." 

Therapists have to be non-judg- 
menial and to keep their own 
feelings, values and experiences 
separate from what the patient tells 
them They should not become 
emotionally involved They vary in 
the extent to which they offer any 
information about themselves, the 
traditional psychoanalyst, for exam- 
ple will still see him or herself as the 
blank screen Freud described 

Friends and lovers may too often 
advise rather than just listen 
Whether the advice is sound or not 
psychotherapy and counselling are 
based on the belief that it is better tn 


the long run to make up your own 
mind and be responsible for your 
own decisions and actions Thus 
many practitioners work in a way 
that is termed non-directive 
It is essential that a therapist 
offers the son of secure, trusting 
relationship that good parents offer 
their children This is especially 
important for people who did not 
have such relationships in child- 
hood or who have failed to achieve 
good relationships in adulthood 
In The Heart of Psvchotherapx 
George Weinberg comments. “As 
psychotherapists we will see a great 
many pauents who have never been 
listened to Their parents paid 
attention only when they liked what 


was being said if at all Many of our 
pauents would be quite different if 
onlv someone some adult had 
taken the time to bear them out ' 

As Weinberg and other therapists 
stress everyone underestimates 
how rare it is to find someone who 
is a good listener and who has the 
abilitv to communicate that “I hear 
what vou are saying and it matters" 
Thev emphasize the healing quality 
of being listened to and of having 
what vou say “reflected” skilfully by 
the therapist 

A good therapist not only listens 
to the patient's words but also to the 
emouonal undertones (which may 
clash considerably with what is 
being said), noung the non-verbal 
clues like facial and bodily ex- 
pressions Someone might say they 
are very happy that their son is 
geiung married, but the fixed smile 
and slight tenseness around ihe 
shoulders may belie this 
The an of listening is dearly 
important when the patient is 
telling the therapist what may have 
been a long-held and shameful 
secret for example, that he had an 
incestuous relationship as a child 

“We are releasing the person 10 
reconsider it in a whole new light, by 
countenancing his presentation of u 
by merely listening" writes Wein- 
berg. "Whatever our impact, we 
encourage the patient to explore 
new territory And he comes to 
think of us as a comrade on his 
journey 10 places he has never 
visited before" 

T he phrase “a comrade on 
his journey” may sound 
roman uc, 'but central 10 
ihe psychological thera- 
pies is a belief in every 
individual worth, bis or her 
autonomy and “speoaJness” and 
the right 10 be taken seriously For 
some the encounter may be the first 
ume such rights have been met 
So the good therapist, for the 
whole of the ume he sees each 
patient, tries to show that person 
respect, warmth and empathy The 
feet that he or she is a professional 
trained and paid to listen, does not 
pre-empt caring. A well-respected 
analyst said some of the best advice 
he could give to anyone considering 
therapy would be to find a therapist 
who was a “human being" some- 
one who seemed warm, not de- 
tached and aloof 
"No matter how much craft a 
therapist, learns, he is lost if he 
suppresses the power to feel dis- 
tressed. helpless, or to feel exhila- 
rated, or even loved by a patient" 
cautions Weinberg. 


‘As soon as I realized I could kill myself, I felt better’ 

D 


epressuo a Che symp- 
tom most likely to 
prompt people to seek 
psychotherapy or 
counselling. The cause is 
.frequently a relationship problem: 
the end of a relationship, a string of 
unsatisfactory relationships or the 
inability to form them. 

Often however, people have no 
dear idea of the root cause, simply a 
feeling that something is wrong. 
Psychotherapist Brenda Moor com- 
mented: “A lot of my clients are 
materially rich bat have lost then- 
sense of identity. Their external 
world is fine but they fed bad inside. 
They need to make the connection 
between the external world and their 
internal world." 

Louisa is 39, works in advertising, 
and fdt she had recovered from her 
divorce five years ago. She is often 
happy hot increasingly she has 
become aware that she has never 
laced op to her feelings about the 
divorce and her mother's death a few 
years earlier. She chose psycho- 
therapy because she hoped that she 
might at last lay some ghosts and 
gara. peace of mind by talking 
through the loss and grief. _ 

Mary is in her mid-thirties. She 


can hardly remember a time when 
she hasn't felt depressed. “Even as a 
child I felt lonely and alienated, a 
failure compared to everyone else In 
the family. I was the only one of six 
children of very successful parents 
to fail the U-pIns. 

“I had my first attack of serious 
depression when I was 15, but I 
didn't ask anyone for help. I couldn't 
talk to my parents about how I fdt. 
It may sound strange but as soon as 
I realized I could loll myself, that I 
had that option, I immediately felt 
modi better.” 

A good marriage, three children 
and a satisfying teaching fob w ere 
not enough to prevent Mary's 
depression returning at regular 
intervals. She never asked her GP to 
help, but she spent time analysing 
herself and recognized some of the 
underlying themes. “I still don't see 
marriage and children as a comple- 
tion of my sell And my depression 
has a despair underlying it all. 1 
really have no hope for my life." 

The depression when her yono- 
gest child went to school was the 
worst. “I just wasn't prepared for 
the intensity of my feelings. I 
became fanatically depressed. On 
the surface Z carried on my life as 


normal but everything churned away 
all the time underneath." 

Two years ago, she took the 
decision to seek professional help. 
She has been seeing a psychothera- 
pist since. “Esothnmlly I was 
paralysed and I realized this was an 
indication 1 needed help. I also 
wanted to change, to come closer to 
other people, mid I felt I couldn't 
make that change on my own." 

The depression of many women is 
linked to their single state, with 
feelings of isolation and failure. 
Carol, who has been having analysis 
for six years, says: “I felt forlorn, 
only half a person and often very 
lonely. 1 felt something was lacking 
in my life, that no man had chosen 
me as his mate." 

Some people seek psychothera- 
peutic help for specific problems or 
difficulties; they recognize the 
sources of their depression. Jane 
had been married for 12 years when 
she discovered her husband was 
having an affair with one of her 
friends. He admitted that this 
wasn't the first time. Jane was 
devastated and they stopped 
talking. 

“It was as if our whole relation- 
ship had been founded on a lie. I felt 


completely on my own; that I was 
the only person this had ever 
happened to; that nobody could 
possibly understand. 

“1 felt f was going insane. My life 
was completely turned upside down. 
I felt absolute despair, just like 
fa llin g down an abyss, everything 
was out of kilter, and I couldn’t cope 
with the most mundane everyday 
tasks." She was dearly heading for 
a breakdown when a friend recom- 
mended marriage guidance counse- 
ling. She has been going for more 
than a year. 

“Depression can mean a trajriad 
of things”, explained a psychothera- 
pist, Jill Curtis. “Some people are in 
a total crisis, others seem to have 
reasonably good and successful 
lives, but last don't fed right They 
may be the sort who discover they 
cannot get rid of these depressed 
feelings by going away on holiday."

the pleas... 


Wanted: patrons for 
Britain’s 154,000 


charities. Members 


of the Royal 


Family preferred 


aery 

of Animals m North Africa 
(Span a) has all the qualities 
you could hope to find in a 
traditional British chanty It 
pleads on behalf of the mute 
and tile four-legged, including 
that incomparable heart- 
wringer, the donkey What n 
does not have is a patron. 

So if you fed you could lend 
your influence and time in ihe 
cause of donkeys, horses, 
mules and camels in that part 
of the world, they will no 
doubt be glad to hear from 
you One other point, how- 
ever although you do not 
necessarily have 10 be a reign- 
ing monarch, membership of 
the Royal Family is a definite 
plus. For. when it comes to the 
patron game, there is little to 
beat a crown on the hat-rack. 

The Duchess of York would 
be ideal And if she should 
happen to have a weakness for 
Saharan quadrupeds, then an 
awful lot of ailing camels will 
find a marked upswing in their 
quality of life For flag-day 
potential the Duchess has no 
equal 

Although she has made it 
clear that she is not accepting 
any such offers for the mo- 
ment, the invitations are flow- 
ing in. the lobbying continues 
ana the fnends-of-friends 
murmur in shadowed corners, 
all m the interests of getting 
her interested 

With her ability to com- 
mand headlines ana television 
cameras, she is worth mil- 
lions. “What this business is 
all about is pulling people, and 
that’s what she can do," said 
one chanty professional 

Discreetly (because patron- 
grabbing is, above all a dis- 
creet business) the rush is on. 
And for aH their silken man- 
ners, it is also a business of 
competition There are 
154,000 chanties in Britain. 
There aren't 154.000 amiable 
royals. 

Since the Queen already 
lends her name to 2000 
charities, the Duke of Edin- 
burgh 1,000, and the others 
are also heavily laden, you can 
see why there is such excite* 
mem when an unencumbered 
and photogenic newcomer 
joins foe Palace team. 

Surprisingly, perhaps, it was 
Princess Anne who first 
pointed foe way The Royal 
Family had always given sup- 
port in the traditional ways — 
and thousands of organiza- 
tions had benefited - but she 
showed with the Save The 
Children Fund what could 
done by an influential individ- 
ual with enough sincerity and 
enthusiasm. 

To be absolutely accurate. 
Princess Anne is not even foe 
patron, foe Queen holds that 
title So it was suggested to foe 
fund that, if they wanted a 
president who would like to 
do some work at foe sharp 
end, they should perhaps ap- 
proach foe Princess. Their 
pleasure over that news was 
nothing compared ro their 
‘ slight later 

When she went to Africa 


and the Middle East, foe 
world's cameras tagged along 
behind her Since then she has 
been to India, Bangladesh. 
Pakistan and the Sudan to 
monitor famine relief work, 
again it was all seen on 
television 

In 10 years, her chosen 
chanty's income has risen 
from £4 5 million to £40 mil- 
lion Even allowing for the 
wordwide emphasis on famine 
relief, much of the credit for 
this achievement must go to 
foe princess. Chns Thornton 
explains the impact quite 
simply When he joined Save 
The Children, less than five 
years ago. he had to explain fo 
people what the organization 
was “Now we are a household 
name.” he says. 

When Lady Diana Spencer 
manned the Prince of Wales, 
the possibilities were immedi- 
ately obvious — and in poured 
foe applications. At first, as 
the Duchess of York ts doing 
now-, she declined them all. 
Then she began to accept a 
handful of the ones which 
particularly interested her 
Help the .Aged, who'd never 
had a Royal patron before, 
was one of the favoured few 
“When she went to one of our 
homes, she wouldn't allow foe 
old people to stand up, but 
insisted on kneeling by their 
chaus." their spokesman said. 
“She is absolutely charming.'* 

Fergie and Di have brought 
a new excitement to the 
patron business. When I asked

work, they are perhaps a btfle 
less than ruthless. The chanty

the way foe Arabs treated foeiF

THE TIMES 
DIARY 


Keeping 
apart 

Two South African diplomats 
attending the Liberal party assem- 
bly in Eastbourne this week are 
being warned by the organizers 
not to cause any trouble. A wise 
precaution, since one of them is 
Richard Davis, the coloured dip- 
lomat among the group which 
created a storm at last week's SDP 
conference by gatecrashing a pri- 
vate reception — an indiscretion 
compounded by their ambassador 
asking the party to change its 
policy on apartheid. When Davis 
and colleague arrive at Eastbourne 
the conference chairman. Roger 
Hayes, will lecture them on Lib- 
eral policy towards their country— 
to force an end to apartheid 
through disinvestment and 
psychological sanctions, but not 
by a full trade embargo — and will 
then caution them against any 
attempt to bust in on fringe 
meetings or organize anything 
from the floor. Hell hath no fury 
like the wrath of a Liberal. 

Marginal seats 

This year's assembly sees a partial 
return to the Liberals' traditional 
policy of letting unknown dele- 
gates sit on the platform with the 
leader and other bigwigsJn Dun- 
dee last year only the important 
and famous were allowed to sit in 
full view of the cameras, mainly 
because space was limited to one 
row. In Eastbourne, with two 
rows, democratic values have 
returned, albeit with qualifica- 
tions: the fiont row is set aside for 
dignitaries, while the one behind is 
open to anyone, on a first-come, 
first-served basis. I predict a daily 
stampede 

Fashists 

Next month the Communist 
Party's monthly magazine, Marx- 
ism Today . hosts what it is 
vaunting as the first ever left 
fashion show, in which “the very 
latest designers from college wiil 
present their work". In case it all 
proves too much for the com- 
rades. there will also be items of 
sartorial conservatism, including 
such old favourites as Ken 
Livingstone's flared trousers and 
safari jacket "the Trots kyite flat 
top and the workerist donkey 
jacket and badges". Forewarned is 
foredothed. 

Paris, natch 

Who is to be our next man in 
Paris? I can reveal that the Foreign 
Office has lined up Ewan 
Feigusson. former ambassador to 
South Africa, who in his youth 
played rugger for Scotland; 
Fergusson, now in charge of Africa 
and the Near East at the FO, gets 
the plum posting as a consolation 
prize after being pipped for the job 
as head of the Foreign Office by 
Sir Patrick Wright. The appoint- 
ment has yet to be approved by 
Mrs Thatcher, and there is 
speculation that Sir Crispin 
Tided!, now permanent under 
secretary at Overseas Develop- 
ment may mount a counierstrike. 
Ticket L. furious at FO plans to 
make him ambassador designate 
to the UN. would dearly love the 
Paris job.

A real jemmy 

The National House Building 
Council's conference next month 
features a keynote speech by the 
Prince of Wales and two talks on 
making your home secure. One 
will be given by the Home 
Secretary. Douglas Hurd, and the 
other, subject to availability, by a 
real expert on the subject: a 
burglar. The council is looking for 
someone who is not currently 
serving a sentence and for whom 
the police are not looking. As the 
conference organizer. Connie Hig- 
gins. told me: "We don't want to 
engage someone who is going to be 
nicked when the Home Secretary 
speaks." One can see her point. 

Up in lights 

I was lucky enough to see eight 
pages of the Book of Kells at one 
showing in the library of Trinity 
College. Dublin, at the weekend. 
Not such paltry news as it may 
sound: the college had doubled the 
usual quota of pages on display to 
celebrate the announcement of a 
new facsimile edition of the book, 
to be published in Lucerne. Tb the 
uninitiated. I should explain that 
the Book of Kdls is an early 9lh 
century illuminated manuscript of 
the four gospels and one of 
Ireland's greatest treasures. Any- 
one who buys the facsimile will be 
able to flick straight through all 
680 pages, though the $ 10,000 
price tag wilt ensure that the work 
retains its scarcity value. One 
more snag: it won't be published 
until 1 99a As if we hadn't waited 
long enough already.

So little time for Alliance 


There was no world situation so 
bad. America's allies used to say, 
that a few well-chosen words from 
John Foster Dulles could not 
make a thousand times' worse. 
Since it was formed five years ago, 
the SDP has come to feel the same 
about the annual assembly of its 
Liberal allies. 

If you accept that in the run-up 
to an election quiet competence is 
the objective, then the SDRs own 
well-ordered conference was a 
success. David Steel has a much 
harder job in trying to drill his far 
more disparate army into the 
same kind of uncontroversial 
obedience, and as the foil Liberal 
assembly opens ' today there 
remain three potential flashpoints: 
defence, nuclear power and the 
SDPs plan for merging tax and 
social security. 

The SDP conference did its best 
to smooth the way to an eventual 
compromise with the Liberals on 
nuclear defence. David Owen, 
uncharacteristically emollient, 
said in public as well as in private 
that the SDP could not expect to 
bounce the Liberals into some- 
thing they had not had time to 
think out and the “minimum 

European deterrent" is a concept 
new to Liberal assembly delibera- 
tions. The SDP conference did 
agree, too, not to stick to die rigid 
tetter of its 1985 defence policy and 
its defence spokesman, Charles 
Kennedy^ pleased Liberal observ- 
ers by affirming that the SDP did 
not insist on the replacement of 
Polaris “come what may". 

But for all those examples of 


Robin Oakley, Political Editor, dp why, the 
Liberal assembly will avoid rocking the boat 
over differences with its SDP partners 


gesture politics, Owen still insists 
that he will not go into an election 
without what he regards as a 
sensible defence policy for the 
SDP, and that means whatever the 
Liberals do. 

Liberal activists say that Steel 
did himself a power of good in bis 
own party by standing up tb Owen 
during the row over the Alliance 
defence commission in eariy sum- 
mer. There should be fewer cries 
at Eastbourne that .Steel has let 
Owen get the boxer of him, 
especially after his only half joking 
reference to “Superbiai Owen" at 
the SDP conference. That was 
definitely designed for home 
consumption. 

But Steel still has to sell a 
compromise to his party, and the 
rank and file — who are ready to 
accept the Spitting Image image of 
him as Owen's vest pocket decora- 
tion — will not be pleased with bis 
latest pronouncements on de- 
fence. 

In television interviews after his 
appearance at Harrogate. Steel 
went further than be has ever done 
before on the need for a Polaris 
replacement. There win be some 
gnashing of teeth, but in the end 
Steel wiU probably get his way on 
defence. 

After five years of Alliance 
politics, - the Liberals have 
changed. It is not only the former 


prominent nit-pickers who now 
run midii-millioo pound council 
budgets, but. many of the rank- 
and-file who can see the need for 
Alliance unity if they are to have a 
taste of power at Westminster. 
Steel got his way . in a tricky 
defence debate last year by a small 
margin. With an election ahead he 
should get the votes he needs. 

The question of the SDP plan 
for mergiog tax and benefits is 
rather more complex.' It was 
diyugseH along the way with the 
Liberals but they did not know 
then that Owen was going to make 
it the centrep i ece of the Alliance 
election shop window. And the 
public relations shambles of its 
first presentation in August left 
-many Liberals aghast at the politi- 
cal tusk of selling something so 
complicated. 

The difficulty for the liberals is 
that they have been pressing for - 
some time for Owen to show less 
of his tough side and more of the 
tender. Now that he has done so as 
wholeheartedly as he has, they can 
hardly foil to go along wife him. 
But once again, Owen will have 
succeeded in hjjadting the Alli- 
ance agenda. 

Although they coroperate well 
on the ground in local government 
and in by-election batiks, the two 
Alliance partners do still have real 
differences. The SDP is a party of 


managers; the Liberals a party of 
campaigners in the mould of their 
president, Des WHson. Where the 
SDP is collectivist, . Liberals are 
individualists. They resent 
Owen's tardy concealed contempt 
for Steers lack of authority -over 
his party and bis dismissal of its 
activists as an anarchic rabble. 
There will have to be an outlet, for 
those irritations on one issue al 
least at Eastbourne. 

That issue is likely to be nuclear 
power. On Thursday the Liberals, 
can show their independence by 
backing a call for the phasing out 
of nuclear power stations, in 
contrast to the . SDPs vote last 
week in favour of building more. 
That will be enough to sbow.Owen 
that they canaot be -taken for 
granted, without proving a major 
threat to Alliance unity. It would 
also help to discharge some of the 
Liberal irritation at Owen’s praise 
for the Liberal contribution in 
giving the SDPs e nvir on m ental- 
policies a greener . tinge. They 
regard that as patronizing, bearing 
the implication that the Liberals 
are good on fringe issues while the 
SDP can be trusted to get on with 
the real meat of politics. 

Unless things go badly wrong, 
there f ore, there is likely to be no 
gauntlet in the face, just a slap on 
the wrist. For what the Liberals, 
tike the SDP, are beginning to 
realize is that time is running out. 
They must stop.making poGcy and 
start selling what they have got. 
And they have got to stop talking 
to themselves and begin address- 
ing tire voters outside. 


After Stockholm, Michael Binyon assesses the outlook for Geneva 


Washington 

With the successful conclusion of 
the 35-nation Stockholm con- 
ference on disarmament in Eu- 
rope. the West is about to approve 
the first arms control agreement 
with the Russians since President 
Reagan came to office six years 
ago. The agreement on confidence 
building measures will not dis- 
mantle a single nuclear weapon or 
remove one soldier from foreign 
soil. But. in Washington at least, it 
is a symbolic victory for the ad- 
vocates of arms control and comes 
as Soviet and US negotiators begin 
another round of the seemingly 
interminable Geneva talks on 
reducing nuclear weapons. 

This time however an unusual 
expectancy hovers in the air. 
There is the question of the US- 
Soviet summit and — assuming 
that the Daniloff affair does not 
destroy everything — both rides 
want to show some progress. 

The Russians have made, 
significant concessions in recent 
months, the pace of talks has 
quickened and Reagan, has. ap- . 
peared increasingly optimistic. - . 
Arms experts meeting in Moscow . . 
and Washington havqgot. down to: 
real business, arid the volume of 
public rhetoric has-been toned 
down. 

There is plenty of lost time id * 
make up. For more than a year . 
after the talks began in March 
1985, both rides were shadow 
boxing. The Russians, though 
increasingly adept al the propa- 
ganda battle, put forward little 
except slogans. Washington, di- 
vided on what to offer and what to 
demand, did not know whether 
Moscow’s ambiguity and contra- 
dictions showed a lack of will ora 
lack of direction as the lead er s hi p 
changed. The talks were tittle 
more than a charade. 

In the middle of this year, 
however, Moscow began to re- 
spond to the US proposals in the 
strategic field, one of the three 
areas of negotiation. By dropping 
their insistence that American 
missiles and aircraft based in 
Europe be counted as strategic 
weapons, the Russians brought the 
two sides' proposals for cutting 
offensive weapons closer together. 
By relaxing their call for a total 
ban on research on “space strike 
weapons” they also removed a big 
obstacle to progress in discusring 
defensive weapons. There was a 
willingness at least to listen to the 
US plans for strategic defence. 

Basically. Moscow proposed a 
deal that links offensive and 
defensive by exchanging cuts of 
roughly 25 per cent in missile 
warheads and 30 per cent in 
strategic launchers (as defined by 
the Americans) for a commitment 
by both rides to abide by a 
strengthened Anti-Ballistic Mis- 
sile treaty for 15-20 years and to 
limit research on missile defence 
to the laboratory. In a way, 
Moscow was offering to restore the 
symmetry between offensive and 
defensive limitations that was the 
foundation of the original Salt 



is the thaw 
here to stay? 


agreements in 1 972, but which was 
later eroded by the growth of 
offensive systems. The Americans 
had previously warned that the 
ABM treaty could not stand alone. 
The 1986 Soviet proposals seemed 
to come to the same conclusion. 

President Reagan has done his 
best to keep his reply confidential. 
But many of the details leaked out, 
including an apparent offer to 
delay the deployment of any 
space-based defensive system for 
seven and a half years. The US has 
now gone further, and 'has for- 
mally decided to bade away from a 
proposal for an immediate 50 per 
cent cut in US and Soviet ballistic 
missile warheads, and — narrow- 
ing the negotiating gap — is now 
proposing a reduction of 30 per 
cent. . 

However, big differences still 
remain, especially on the Strategic 
Defeats Initiative. The Russians 
want tight restrictions on the kind 
of SDI research to be permitted, 
which Washington o pp oses; and 
the US has proposed deep cuts in 
large Soviet land-based missiles, 
which Moscow opposes. 

But more progress does seem 
likely in other fields, particularly 


in reducing the number of inter- 
mediate range missiles and in 
verification and confidence build- 
ing measures in the conventional 
field. At Stockholm the Russians 
have finally accepted the principle 
of on-site inspection and aerial 
verification of troop movments 
and concentrations in Europe. 
They are offering to take Nato 
inspection teams in Soviet air- 
craft; Nato has suggested, that 
neutral planes be used, but the 
Russians ate not expected to agree 
to this for fear they would be used 
for spying The compromise now 
being worked out is that the 
nationality of the planes could be 
settled on a case-by-case basis. 

Die question of verification has 
long beenihe sticking point.at yet 
another set of talks, the marathon 
Vienna, negotiations on con- 
ventional Mutual and Balance 
Force Reductions (MBFR) in 
Central Europe. Here the West has 
made a concession in not insisting 
first on determining the exact sire 
of Warsaw Pact forces in the area, 
but agreeing first to consider 
verification procedures.- The West 
is now bargaining overbow many, 
annual inspections would be 


permitted, and where, and some 
glacial progress has been made. 

Geneva is also the rite of 
discussions on ' two other vital 
areas of arms control: the banning 
of chemical weapons, and under- 
ground nuclear tests. On the laser, 
the Russians have been making 
the running, certainly in 
propaganda.Tbe US has found it 
hard to answer Gorbachov’s re- 
peated calls to join his current 
unilateral moratorium on under- 
ground tests, and indeed -officals 
here now adroit in private that the 
US is unwilling to accept this even 
if effective verification procedures 
could be established. 

The US argument in public is 
that at present the Russians may 
still be able to break a ban, as tftey 
did in the eariy 1960s. In private, 
officials say that as long as nuclear 
weapons are to remain a deterrent, 
new ones must be tested- 

A continued US hard line on 
this point will makeacomprehen- 
rive test ban treaty very hard to 
achieve. Indeed any, or all, of the 
arms negotiations could get stuck, 
and there would be some in the US 
administration who would not be 
sorry. However, both President 
Reagan and most of bis top 
advisers are commmed to getting 
agreements provided they can be 
verified and US national security 
is main rained. 

If it is hard to.jjset anything in 
time for a summit and smooth 
Gorbachov's way here. that, the 
top officials say, is too bad. On the 
other hand, almost no one wants 
the ups and downs of the Daniloff 
affair and other irritants to halt the 
Geneva negotiations now : that 
they seem to be making real 
progress. 


The king and the glamorous Mrs X 


Oslo 

Norway is going through a literary 
and political scandal that could 
generate much heat, and perhaps 
shed a little light, well into the 
winter. It began at the end of 
August with a pre-publication leak 
of what was to become known 
immediately as “that book", al- 
though its actual title. Diary from 
the King's Council, was on the face 
of it most unlikely to. set any 
antennae quivering. Its ostensible 
subject matter seems even less the 
stun of sensation: the records kept 
by Jens Haugland. now aged 76, 
while justice minister from 1956 
to 1965. 

The scandal broke more than a 
week before publication dare 
Haugland's publisher. Det Norske 
Saralaget, insists that it was not by 
design, but because “someone in 
the government went to the long 
with the manuscript without tell- 
ing us”. Publication was brought 
forward immediately, and the 
book is now prominently dis- 
played in every bookshop. 

As is so often the case in literary 
sensations, the contents of the 
diaries that have provoked such 
uproar are a very small pari of the 
whole, almost throwaway asides 


in accounts of who said what to 
whom at this meeting or that, of 
interest primarily to students of 
Nordic history. 

The part that has caused the 
controversy, so sensitive that even 
a passing reference to it after 
almost 30 years can still shock 
Norwegian society to the core, 
concerns the relationship that 
King Olav. now aged 83, was 
alleged to have had with a raven- 
haired beauty of the day who 
owned one of Oslo's most fashion- 
able shops. Although her name is 
known to many Norwegians, she 
is referred to in the book, and in 
press reviews, only as "Mrs X". 

Both the king and “Mis X” — 
who is still alive — denied the story 
at the time, and discussion of it in 
the Norwegian press was very 
short-lived; but Haugjand suggests 
in his diaries that the affair was 
serious enough to warrant use of 
the word abdication in high-level 
discussions. 

The king was (and remains) a 
widower, his wife: the Swedish 
Crown Princess Martha, having 
died in 1954. Public reaction to 
the rumour saw much more about 
the attitude ofNorwegians to their 
royal family than about any issues

30-year-old rumour

A second strain of scandal to 
emerge m the diaries is the alleged 
surveillance of- the wife of the 
Labour prime minister of the 
lime, the Rev Einar Gerhardsen, 
by the Norwegian equivalent of 
M15. for reasons that remain 
unclear. The surveillance, accord- 
ing to discussions recorded by the

Werna Gerhardsen was a lively 
and popular figure, and her hus- 
band was known to rely heavily on 
her shrewd political judgment. 
There seems to have been . no 
reason to question her loyalty 
beyond the fraternal contacts with 
Soviet and East European coun- 
tries to which any active young 
socialist in Europe during her 
girlhood would have been rou- 
tinely exposed. According to 
Haugland's notes, the surveillance 
was called off when Gerhardsen 
discovered iL

muttering to itself “There ought 
to be a law”. There is. Hie statutes 
impose a 40-year moratorium on

there is even something very like a 
law of tese nuyeste on the books.

Fountains isapparendy the most 
visited National Trust property; it 
has a huge car park and I can 
imagine that when it is full of 
oraches and the ruins swarming 
with people it .is a little more 
difficult to enjoy. A friend bad 
warned me that every time she 
went to Fountains it was raining. 
But this was a sparkling eariy 
September morning; rooks 
wheeled around, the grea t tow er 
and the mighty hand-hewn arches, 
cloisters and transept stood like a 
giant’s altar at the end of the grassy 

valley of the river SkdL It was a 
magical sight and there was 
hartfly anybody else ibere. 

The guidebook told me that the 
abbey was founded in 1132 tty 13 
Benedictine monks from York 
seeking a life of greater austerity. 
They parted building in what was 
a thorny wilderness, in the depths 
of winter, fll clothed and with little 
food. Subsequently theyjoined the 
Cistercians, then a spiritual force 
sweeping Europe; and embarked 
on four centuries of growth, 
prosperity, controversy, crisis and, 
finally, dissolution. 

During that time the foundation 

seems to have lost its way. On its 
dissolution the treasures felling 
into the king’s hands included rich 

vestments, silver chalices, jewel 
encrusted cnxriers and extensive 
estates. At the beginning the 
Cistercian order had deliberately 
sought out waste and marginal 
-foods which were formed with the 
labour of unpaid lay brothers. 
They contributed to the strides in 
forming techniques made during 
the 12 m century and established 
Yorkshire as a centre of the wool 
and doth trade. As with New 
England's puritans or Israel's 
-kibbutzniks, an idealistic det- 
ermination to set up a society 
purged of the debilitating wraith 
and luxury of the old produced in 
the end an astonishing prosperity. 

Even in the early years they 
seemed to have spent a lot tune 
and energy on factions and 
politicking, tows, splits and 
confrontation- In what seems a 
brutally unchristian spirit they 
dispossessed neighbouring villag- 
ers who got in the way of thdr new 
forming projects. They quarrelled 
with the king and with the 
archbishop, and St Bernard him- 
self had 10 keep coming over to

exaggerated them. Few have men-

Seeking a way to combat terrorism 

From the Director of the Council and supervised by the Inu 
‘for Education in World Citizen- national Red Cross. 


Cction of SHfe'iafS ^ SteeI “ 


Social Democrats hold their 
conference first, it is a state- 
ment of the political substance 
of the two Alliance leaders. Dr 
Owen, casts shadows. Mr Steel 
fights from them. 

The SDP leader’s public 
domination in debate is infuri- 
ating to those in the Liberal 
rank: and file, who have often 
waited to reassert their own 

separate identity and wifi at- 
tempt to do so again this week. 
It leads to difficulties for Mr 

f teeL who has to spend much 
f hfs conference time paper- 
ing pver Alliance cracks. 

Iddso needs careful consid- 
eration from those who wifi be 
tuning in to the Eastbourne 
media circus. For although the 
influence of Dr Owen is likely 
to outweigh by fertile numeri- 
cal . , representation of his 
supporters in any post-election 
grouping of the Alliance, it 
may mot outweigh it by fer 
enough. The man in the shad- 
ows i&the man who needs to be 
watched. 

When the SDP was founded 
five' years ago, the Liberal 
party-Tbegan a consequent pro- 
cessnpf change, which many of 


bated with which Mr Steel is 
not happy. 

The motion on defence, so 
long an issue of conflict be- 
tween the two parties, is one 
for which Dr Owen could 
hazily vote. It welcomes the 
Alliance Joint Commission, 
calls for a stronger European 
pillar within Nato and does 
not rule out replacing Polaris. 
Not only is this set to pass, but 
Steel's associates ate saying 
'confidently that any amend- 
ments which oppose the 
replacement of Polaris will be 
voted down. 

This represents a major shift 
in the message of a Liberal 
party, which only two years 
ago voted for the “immediate 
withdrawal of cruise missiles 
from the UK” and clearly 
rejected submarine-launched 
cruise missiles (Dr Owen’s 
favourite means for im- 
plementing a minimum Euro- 
pean nuclear deterrent). 

What are the reasons? The 
first is that local power has 
undoubtedly led to realism. 
The Association .of Liberal 
Councillors, once the van- 
guard of the radical wing, has 
now become more conser- 
vative. Gone are those golden

intra- Alliance politics. Be- 
cause Dr Owen so forcefully 
opposed the Joint Commis- 
sion as a fudge. Liberals rallied: 
round a document which they 
might have rejected if it had 
had Owen's original support. 
Not for the first time Steel is 
privately pleased that Owen 
made his outburst It improves 
the prospects' of Alliance 
power. 

But if it took an Owenite 
thunderstorm to dear the air, 
Olympian thunderbolts may 
be necessary to keep it so. Mr 
Michael Meadowcroft and 
other parliamentary colleagues 
will still be opposing the report 
this week. According to Mr 
Meadowcroft it is “weapons- 
led” rather than “values-led” 
and goes against the spirit of 
the Alliance by imposing its 
findings on the two parties 
from the top. Until Owen’s 
outburst this group might have 
been expected to carry a 
significant part of the party. 
Such support, however, is not 
demolished by one SDP strike. 

. When the SDP leader stands 
up tMs afternoon to address 
the Liberal conference, he can 
be forgiven for feeling satisfac- 
tion at his part in separating 
his Alliance partners from the 
more embarrassing associ- 
ations of their past But that 
Alliance is, in Ms own words, 
going through a period of rapid 
evolution. He should not for- 
get that in evolutionary strug- 
gles the survival of the fittest 
has for long periods meant the 
survival of die largest and the 
hungriest for power. Neither 
should the electorate. 


In a- little-reported speech at 
the beginning of last week's 
SDP: conference the party’s 
Trade and Industry spokes- 
man'; Mr Ian Wrigglesworth, 
addressed himself to the future 
of the UK car industry. This 
ought to be fertile tenitory for 
the self-styled “thinking” wing 
of the Alliance. The Govern- 
ment' has spectaculariy faded 
to provide an answer, to. the 
problems of the stated wned 
Rover Group, unless we are to 
be satisfied with its new name. 
The Labour Party can be relied 
upon for nothing more than 
greater generosity with the tax- 
payers’ money. So what did 
Mr Wrigglesworth have to say? 

He~ genuflected to the friends 
of Mr Neil Kinnoclc “an 
Alliance Government would 
not allow the collapse of such a 
vital part of our manufac- 
turing base” Hp bowed to Mr 
Norman Fowler’s phalanx of 
frightened Midlands MPs 
whose “justified outcry” 
forced the repudiation of Aus- 
tin Rover’s merger with Ford. 
He even had something for the 
harder beaded Right to whom 
^ae offered praise for Japanese 
efficiency standards. 

But what would be Ms 
ministerial answer to a com- 
pany that is brushing per- 
ilously close to that Great 
British ditch where rusting 
motor cycles lie? “To continue 
with the existing long-term 
strategy for the Rover Group” 
plus the application of “excit- 
ing options — such as em- 
plovee buy-outs at Land 
Rover, where they are 
appropriate". 

Mr Paul Channon, the 
Government’s ineffective In- 
dustry Secretary, feces no 
political threats from this 
quarter. But the real-life indus- 
trial threats remain. They are 
being reinforced as every 
month goes by. 

The eventual privatization 
of .Austin Rover is still the 
Government's fond ambition. 
Privatization has been a 
powerful weapon over the past 
seven years. For successfoi 
capital-hungry giants hke Brit- 
ish Telecom or saWageable 
some-time failures like British 
Airwavs or Jaguar, it is the best 
. possible answer. Die promrae

than £60 million. 

Ford has survived better 
than most but is anxious about 
its UK prospects, particularly 
in the light of the threat to its 
fleet markets from Nissan's 
expanding plant in the north- 
east Will Ford again consider 
taking Austin Rover? Is any- 
one trying to persuade it to do 
so? The future of Vauxhall can 
hardly be assured with any 
confidence, after General 
Motors’- rapid closure of its 
large commercial vehicle mak- 
ing capacity (as threatened at 
the time of the Land Rover 
row). 

Any serious politician must 
see the possibiliiy of the 
current big names of the 
British motor industry being 
reduced to Jaguar, Rolls Royce 
and a few three-wheelers. Per- 
haps Nissan will expand fur- 
ther to fill the gap but we know 
little of the company’s long- 
term intentions. 

There is little sign from the 
Government whether it would 
mind its policy vacuum on the 
subject of the car industry 
being translated into an indus- 
trial vacuum in which there 
was virtually no car industiy. 
The strategy of rationalization 
leading to privatization works 
only when there is a plausible 
possibility of the latter occur- 
ring within a reasonable 
timescale. 

If there is no such possibil- 
ity, then the best managers 
lack proper goals and the worst 
seek solace in “rescue” by Mr 
KinnocL Meanwhile at the 
heart of the business the “For 
Sale” sign has serious dangers, 
not least for the company’s 
biggest off-balance sheet asset, 
the loyalty of its dealer net- 
work. 

There is much (mostly 
realistic) talk within the com- 
pany about lower levels of 
market share and some 
(mostly unrealistic) talk about 
higher levels of profitability. 
How long are dealers to wait 
for tMs new phase of the car 
wars without any idea where 
the retreat is intended to stop? 
Should tax-payers be so pa- 
tient while Tory politicians 
stick to policies they have 
foiled to carry out, Labour 
politicians grasp for the past, 
and Alliance politicians spray 
vague promises around spa- 
town bars?

Sir. In your leader (September 8) 
“They must not succeed”, follow- 
ing the Latest example of inter- 
national terrorism, you rightly 
warn against governments losing 
their way “in an orgy of recrimina- 
tion and dissent”. You also accept 
that most (I would say all ) 
countries “need each other in the 
campaign against terrorism” and 
that “there should be much greater 
co-operation between them”. 

Yet you make no reference to 
the United Nations - which is 
surely the only body empowered 
to implement such co-operation. 
Admittedly the UN has frequently 
become moribund as a result of 
disagreement between the major 
powers. 

But last December, the General 
Assembly unanimously and un- 
equivocally condemned “all acts, 
methods and practices of terror- 
ism whenever and by whomever 
committed"; and a few days later, 
the Security Council (also unani- 
mously and unequivocally) con- 
demned all acts of hostage taking. 

So much for the wife What of 
the way? We already have the 
force of international law. 
Conventions exist to cover most 
exigencies and another is being 
drawn up by the International 
Maritime Organisation in London 
to cover terrorism aboard or 
against ships. 

All that remains is to ensure that 
they can be implemented. The UN 
Secretary-General should now be 
empowered to create: 

1. A conciliation unit (this has not 
hitherto been the UN's greatest 
strength and assistance might be 
obtained from the non-gov- 
ernmental International Peace 
Academy). 

2. A task force, independent of the 
SAS and its counterparts but with 
as much expertise. 

3. A special court — under the 
aegis of the International Court of 
Justice. 

4. A detention centre and prison 
on an island or in a remote area, 
manned by a UN security force 

Respiratory care 

From Dr Stephen G. Spiro 
Sir, Many would agree with Stuart 
Haywood and John Yates 
(“London's unh ealthy appetite”, 
September 5) that there is a 
shallowness of debate within the 
NHS on health issues, but to claim 
that Bloomsbury Health Author- 
ity has five times more chest 
medicine than other English re- 
gions -is a * gross distortion of 
staffing levels in general — al- 
though there still remain -some - 
regions with deplorable levels of 
respiratory care. 

Respiratory medicine is cur- 
rently under great threat, with 
policies of non-replacement of 
retiring consultant staff This has 
caused a desperate log jam at

istrar level within the specially.

Church in crisis 

From the Provost of Wakefield 
Sir, My attention has been drawn 
to the extract that you published 
on September 10 from Gavin 
Stamp's contribution to the book 
Church in Crisis. He quotes, with 
some disapproval, the fact that in 
the Diocese of Wakefield 12 out of 
25 redundant churches have been 
pulled down since 1968. It would 
have been more appropriate if Mr 
Stamp bad mentioned the remark- 
able fact that as many as 13 out of 
25 churches have been found 
alternative uses. 

it is incredibly difficult to find 
appropriate alternative uses for 
churches in an area that is 
suffering severe economic de- 
pression, and where it is difficult 
to justify the enormous cost of 
conversion to secular use of these 
inappropriate and largely Vic- 
torian buildings. 

The history of the Church in 
this pan of the world is one of 
great expansion during the nine- 
teenth century, coinciding with 
the boom years of the woollen 
trade. Mill owners of all religious 
persuasions, and none, built 
churches and chapels for their 

Poor spelling 

From Mrs Joanna Teuton Brown 
Sir, As the daughter-in-law, wife 
and mother of appalling spellers 
(Oxford, Cambridge and Oxford 
University respectively) 1 would 
disagree with Philip Howard 
(September 13) that bad spelling 
shows sloppiness. 

None of them are sloppy. It is 
useless to say “Use a dictionary". 
They are completely unaware of 
the feet that they are not spelling 
tiie word correctly.

Fruitless question 

From Mr John Lee 
Sir, On the subject ofhoDy bushes. 
How does one sex them? I have a 
number of holly bushes, none of 
which bears berries. 

I have been told that one 
requires both male and female 
plants for pollination. 

The question that arises there- 
fore is this. Do 1 have all male 
holly bushes or all barren females? 
Do I introduce a female or a male 
to get things going?

This last is essential if we are to

Now that the "nations of the

From the Chairman of the In- 
stitute for the Study of Terrorism 
Sir. -Mr Jonathan Beds (Septem- 
ber 18) is right to underline the 
. need for more and better research 
into international terrorism. 

However, the United Kingdom- 
based foundation which he pro- 
poses already exists. We have been 
functioning with a suitably low 
profile since June; the director of 
the institute, Jillian Becker, and 
our small staff have already begun 
to assemble valuable information 
on the organization, methods and 
personalities involved in inter- 
national terrorism. 

The independent financing and 
effective operation of such an 
organisation depends to a consid- 
erable extent on Government 
recognition and co-operation. In 
the United States and Israel, there 
are extensive exchanges between 
government agencies and in- 
dependent organisations. 

Some governments, however, 
(including our own) are reluctant, 
for security and other reasons, to 
collaborate with groups outside 
the official establishment. Yet, 
until total national and inter- 
national resources are brought to 
bear on the problem of inter- 
national terrorism, the threat is 
likely to persist and to increase. 
Yours sincerely, 

CHALPONT, Chairman,

The last four NHS chest special- 
ists who retired in Bloomsbury 
Health Authority were not re-

These are supplemented by two

work forces that were more a 
monument to the status of the mill 
owner than a recognition of the 
need of the population, even in 
those days. 

Today, many of these churches 
and chapels stand as gaunt 
reminders of a past prosperity, 
rather than as living witnesses to 
the presence and glory of God. All 
denominations are raced with die 
same problem. It is remarkable 
that so many have been preserved. 
It is also remarkable that so many 
parishes continue to provide a 
Christian presence, even in those 
areas of this diocese where there - 
are very few non-Muslims to be 
found living in the parish. 

It would be helpful if authors 
like Mr Stamp were to resist the 
temptation to make sweeping 
judgements without visiting each 
individual parish concerned. The 
pastoral problems are always dif- 
ferent, and always require a 
different solution.

Legal cards on table 

From Mr J. B. Hodge 

Sir, The Lord Chancellor has 
suggested (report September 11) 
that in civil litigation lawyers 
should put their cards on the table. 
Of course this is not a new 
suggestion. It has been talked 
about and thought about as long as 
I have been in practice. No one, 
however, has been able to explain 
to me how you ensure that your 
opponent puts his rotten cards on 
the table and not just his aces. 

The Lord Chancellor also said 
that the profession had ‘‘too many 
sacred cows". Is the practice* 
whereby only members of the Bar 


Qarifying role of 
science schools 

From Dr David Brancher 
Sir, Your report of September 15 
(“Baker to set up science schools") 
refers to the £43 million which the 
Government has allocated for 
more engineering places in univer- 
sities and polytechnics. 

It does not mention the situa- 
tion this summer, shown by a 
survey in The Sunday Times, 
where 23 polytechnics out of 30 
had vacancies in electronic en- 
gineering and (a different) 23 had 
empty places in mechanical en- 
gineering. The choke-point is the 
weakness in our secondary 
schools. 

This crisis in teaching is com- 
pounded by the confused nomen- 
clature which reflecis a national 
indifference and ignorance. Your 
headline says science. Below it you 
refer to industry's need for sci- 
entists and technologists. 

Some scientists are needed, of 
course, but the central profession 
cannot be named because the term 
engineer has been debased by the 
media to the point where it has 
little meaning to either pupils or 
parents. 

Someone said to me recently: 
“My elder boy’s very good indeed 
at maths and physics and keeps on 
about becoming an engineer. But 
rd rather he went to university". 
The speaker was a head teacher. 

The confusion about engineer- 
ing and science matters in a way 
which is central to the purpose of 
the proposed schools. Only in 
Britain is it believed that engineer- 
ing is (at best) an offshoot of 
science. 

In Germany there is 
Wissenschafi — knowledge, from 
history to chemistry, “arts” sub- 
jects to science. And there is 
Technik — how to create, in a 
world of constraints. 

If the Department of Education 
and Science had any understand- 
ing of the issue it would set up any 
new schools around the second of 
these. Maths and physics (and 
language) would be taught well in 
them, &it as qxeans, not ends. The 
kno wledge-for-know 1 edge people 
would stay where they are. 

The new schools should be for 
the visualizers, the artists, the 
inventors, the creators; the fid- 
dlers, shapers, sketchers and mak- 
ers; those whose fingers, pencils, 
symbols, diagrams and keyboards 
do the thinking with the brain. 

They should be for those whose 
talents are foreign to the word- 
knowledge culture of traditional 
schooling, which has erased the 
industry and wealth of this coun- 
try for a century and more.

From the Chairman and the 
General Secretary of ike Poetry 
Society 

Sir, The article by your new 
publishing correspondent X. Li- 
bris (“Left on the shelf", Septem- 
ber 8), provides a timely reminder 
of the need fora Literature Centre. 

All the different and necessary 
elements of such a centre already 
exist The Poetry Society has 
served for many years as a 
national poetry centre; the Na- 
tional Book League takes good 
care of fiction and other areas of 
the book trade; the Arts Council 
has its own excellent poetry 
library. 

There is a new poetry distribu- 
tion service and various bodies are 
coming together to organise a 
major national poetry festival next 
spring. 

Many organisations, including 
our own, would be happy to join 
in the planning process if the 
South Bank Board announced a 
dear intention of establishing a 
Literature Centre and outlined 
what it had in mind.

AMERICAN OPEN GOLF 
CHAMPIONSHIP. 

. MR OUIMET’S GREAT 
ACHIEVEMENT. 

(From Our Special 
Correspondent.) 

Country Chib, Brookline, Sept. 20. 

Mr Francis Ouimet at Brookline 
to-day heat Vardon by five strokes 
and Ray by six. He went round on a 
wet. muddy day. before a huge, 
excited crowd, in 72 by absolutely 
wonderful golf. It was by far the 
most enthralling game of golf that I 
have ever seen, nor is it, I think, 
any exaggeration to say that Mr 
Ouimet gave an exhibition of skill, 
nerve and courage that, consider- 
ing the circumstances, has ever 
been equalled. 

Mr Ouimet 's golf yesterday was 
astonishing. I should have said 
that nothing could be finer than 
the way in which, on the day before 
he finished in better than perfect 
figures, knowing exactly what he 
had to do.: but really, 1 think, to- 
day's achievement was finer still. 
He had had a night to sleep on the 
situation in which he suddenly 
found himself. He had to ploy 
against Vardon and Ray actually in 
the flesh, not merely against their 
scores on paper. He had to see their 
shots and follow them. He was one 
David against two Goliaths, and, 
moreover. H was not that Ray or 
Vardon played badly. At the very 
end they broke down, but for a long 
time they were playing the sound, 
powerful, accurate golf that one 
knows so well. All that time Mr 
Ouimet was absolutely bolding his 
own, returning blow for blow, never 
looking for one moment as if he 
would break down. Then slowly but 
surely he wore his men down, and 
finally he battered and trampled on 
them. He drove shot for shot with 
them. He was the more accurate 
with his irons. He was unquestion- 
ably on the day the best putter of 
the three. If I could find stronger 
language I could certainly use it 
BAD WEATHER AND A 
GREAT CROWD. 

-.The ground was extraordinarily 
good considering the tiiree days’ 
rain, but still it was soft, greasy and 
muddy. Nothing, however, could 
damp the enthusiasm of the spec- 
tators, who came pouring out of 
Boston long before 10 o'clock. 
Brookline, with its rolling hills, 
valleys and jutting promontories of 
rock, made a most dramatic setting 
for the great match, ridge after 
ridge being capped with a black 
crowd of onlookers. The red flags 
bowed tumultuously up and down 
the hills. Tenors, basses, and 
baritones shouted themselves 
hoarse through megaphones. Rope 
men worked like tigers. To hear the 
crowd thundering behind gave a 
realistic and alarming feeling of 
1 parting a cavalry charge 

THE FIRST MNE HOLES. 

At the next hole [4th] there 
appeared a chance, and it was the 
only chance in the whole match, of 
Mr Ouimet breaking down, for he 
sliced his second out of bounds. At 
this crucial moment be followed up 
the bad shot by a superlatively 
good one, and both Ray and 
Vardon letting the chance slip, the 
hole was halved in five -. At the 8th 
a wild war whoop from the 
spectators round the green an- 
nounced that Mr Ouimet had laid a 
long iron shot stone dead He got 
his three, so did Ray by dint of a 
long putt. Vardon had a faultless 
four, and now all three were level 
once again — 

MR OUIMET TAKES 
THE LEAD. 

The 10th. a short hole, proved, 
though one hardly appreciated it at 
the time, the beginning of the end. 
All three were on the green, with 
Mr Ouimet nearest the hole. Both 
Vardon and Ray had to putt over 
holes which their balls had made in 
foiling on the soft grass. They took 
three putts each, while Mr Ouimet. 
whose ball was half covered with 
mud. got his three, and so Mr 
Ouimet was one stroke ahead — 

The strain was so great that 
someone was bound to go soon, and 
it was Ray that went. He put his 
second into a bunker near the 15th 
green. He took two to get out and 
six for the hole- He was now to all 
intent and purposes a dead man 

The 17th settled the match. 
Vardon, r unning things too fine, 

was bunkered while Mr Ouimet 

play^ a perfect tee shot to exactly 

the right place. Vardon got out his 
5, but Mr Quimet played a lovely 
shot to within six yards of the hate. 
He trickled the ball gently down 
hill; it went on and on and then fell 
iff-

Memorial service 

Mr N. Stock 

ATservicc of thanksgiving for the 
life of Mr Nigel Stock was held 
yesterday at St Paul's, Covent 
Gprden. The Very Rev .David 
Elliott officiated and Mr Harry 
Andrews read the lesson. Mr 
ABh Cox read from the works of 
Conan Doyle and Mr Michael 
Garb bon from Shakespeare. 
Mira Daphne Oxenfbrd read. 
“The Trees" by Philip Larkin. 


The trenchant, and erudite 
criticisms of the Church of 
England by the Spectator trio 
of Messrs Moore, Wilson and 
Stamp will add to the holiness 
of the church, for reprimands 
and censures, whether jus- 
tified or not, are good for the 
soul, or sort is said. 

Their portrait in The 
Church in Crisis (Hodden 
£6.95), extracts from which 
appeared in The Times this 
month, is bleak as a descrip- 
tion but- bleaker still as a 
diagnosis; for there is nothing 
the church can actually do to 
cure itself of the faults they 
find. 

Their thesis is that the 
present state of the Church of 
England is the result of wilful, 
vain and self-indulgent 
choices, particularly by the 
deigy, sometimes by the Gen- 
eral Synod, some even by its 
secretary general, Mr Derek 
Patrinson. By implication, all 
could be put right by changing 
the personnel and changing 
the choices; and perhaps 
abolishing the General Synod 
(and Mr Patrinson). 

Yet the church is faced with 
problems not of its own 
making or fault, arising from 
the long retreat of the English 
people from formal religious 
observance and doctrinal be- 
lief That is at the base of the 
Ourch of England's diffi- 
culties, and to blame it on the 
deigy or the synod is not 
reasonable. It is to confuse-the 
crisis itself with the church's 
struggle to cope with the crisis, . 
mistaking cause for 
consequence. 

Such criticism is by no 
means confined to those three 
waters, and is so widespread 


as almost to constitute a crisis by sayuqp “The Church 
movement or party within the of England continues to de- 
church. It could be called the dine, and to separate itself 
Tdegraph/Spectator school of from, its members, the^copfc 
churchmanship. It is im- -of England-". That is im- 
patient of sociological the- mantic nationalistic mys- 
ories, of all “trcndiness”, and deism. Gavin Stamp remarks: 
in partkulaTof the Alternative the Anglican vicar is not 

Service Book. In essence, it is just... competing with the 

Noncomformists and the Ro- 


thc belief that there was once a 
Golden Age. and the Church 
of England blew it 

But it is a misreading or the 
evidence. The sights and 
sounds of crisis are much 
more the surface signs of a 
deep readjustment of the 
church's base relationship to 
English society, from the sta- 
tus of national church in its 
fullest sense, to that of a 
denomination, albeit the hug- 
est, most senior, and most 
influential of them. 

The Church of England is 
now trying to exist simulta- 
neously in both those ways, as . 
it moves gradually from one to 
the other, and Its internal 
afiairs arc shaken by frequent 
earthquakes as and when they 
collide. 

The Book of Common 
Prayer, often said by itsardent 
defenders to be a national 
literary treasure, symbolizes 
the concept of the national 
church as the official, and 
officially the only, religion of 
the English. The Alternative 
Service Book, written to meet 
the church's need for a 
contemporary liturgy, sym- 
bolizes the church .as a body 
within the nation, not co- 
terminus with it, and one 
which controls its own spir- 
itual afiairs according to atti- 
tudes ikk held in common 
with the nation as a whole. . 

Charles Moore sums up the 


stair He is woriring 

within a society in which 
religion seems only to -have- a 
peripheral role. The church 
feds embattled, and more and 
more like a sect, less and less 
like the legally established 
official religion of the land." 

Both men' are arguing that if 
the Church of England is freed 
-with .a choice between its 
Christian integrity and its role 

as the rationalchurdi, it must 
per fo r c e choose the latter. 
What in fect it is trying to do, 
painfully and slowly, . is to 
loosen the bonds which tie it 
toafodety which is rather Jess 
than iKHriinally Christian, be- 
cause it sees the trap in staying 
so dosdy tied. If its members 
are * all “the people of 
England", then it has already 
ceased to be a Christian 
church. England is mission 
territory now. 

AJ'i.WDson’s contribution 
is closest to recognizing that, It 
is the Anglican priest's task, he 
writes, "to seek out .Christ in 
the poor, the lonely, the 
outcasts* to visit Christ when 
sick or imprisoned; and to 
feed Christ when hungry and 
do the Him when naked It has 
been (be priest's task to raise 
up the penitent sinner and to 
pronounce Christ’s absolution 
of his sirs; and this is a task 
which the modern church is 
foolish to neglect—" 


That is a&'gobd Christian 
stuff. bur two thirds of die 
population of England, would 
have noidea what he is talking 
about, “b has been the j—*— *’* 
task to stand at, God's, 
art mtfa freaking ofjtoad to 
feed God's -people with foe 
body of .Christ-"' Taken in 
conjunction with Moon and 
Stamp* that caaorily add up to 
foe* startling proposition that 
the “people erf England" 
equals “the membership of the 
Church of England", which 
equals "God's people". 

The frith of the church is 
therefore, and can never be 
otherfoan, foe collective 
ions of tire population < 
country, which are by defi- 
nition deemed Christian. Such 
an argument empties the 
church's frith of any meaning. 

It is pdrt of thc Church of 
England's duty lotryto serve 
the whole peoplerather than* 
miuority. and so, itis a marie of 
the Anglican style, pat to erect 
unnecessary official barriers 
between Its internal life and 
the. comm unity at buge^But it 
must have such an internal 
lift, where, its spiritual 
Strength is generated as mem- 
bers are -bound togcthei 
through word and sacrament. 

It is from there that AH. 
Wilson’s idea) priest most 
draw his energy. Ifthey are to 
be other than, keepers of 
tombs, those involved in that 
lift must be able to shape it to 
their needs and purpos 
they feel the promptings 
Holy Spirit and as they read 
the signs of the times. Thai is 
what they in fect do, and it is 
that which causes so much 
resentment in these aides.

His own deep interest, haw^ 
ever, was tn the area Of belief 
hseffi and he was atiaariied to 
the theories of the- Canadian, 
Bernard Tonttgan, which he 
helped to make more widely 
known. . 

Bin for him,, the. English 
Roman Catholic Church 
would have looked b ar ren of 
new ideas .arid .totally oqme- 
pared for them when they 
reached it* from elsewhere. He 
enriUed it to continue, recog-

He attended aU tour sessfoqs 
of the Second Vatican Council 
from 1962to 1965 andpfeyed 
an active partin them. He was 
elected to^ ^the enlarged Cbm- 
, mission for Doctrine and he 
served in a draftii^ group 



crated titular Bishop of Nova 
Barbara and Auxiliary tothe 
Cardinal Archbishop of West- 
minster; and so, on the death 
of Cardinal Heenan ten rears 
later, he became the Vicar 
Capitular until Hume was 
appointed to Wesmunster. 

Bom 1966 to 1980 he was 
chairman of foe ediwrial 
board of The Clergy /kwe*. 
At Oxford he gave *e SaTurn 
Lectures on church history,

foe fu« of 

further five books; uw fo«* • 
being an autobiography eno^- 
tied Time to Speak (1972),; 
which said less than was^ 
hoped by his friends. Fernap^, 
his most influential writing,, 
was in the articles he wroft , 
between 1965 and 1977. fra; 
The Tablet. He also wrote? : 
masterly articles at the time of 
foe encyclical Humanae vitae-. 
(1968), which, by their danty. 
and calm, quietened foe d isr. 
tuibed spirit of English Ro- 
man Catholicism. 

Another great experience 
was his fifteen years wore on 
the AngUcan/Roman Cafoohc 
International Commission, - 
where he happily returned to 
dialogue with the religion of 
his youth, .bringing as his . 
special contribution the wis- 
dom of Vatican irs. new 
synthesis, in which- scripture 
came to play a central role. . 

For its members, ARC3C' 
was arguably the fullest thco- - 
logical experience of foe foe 
seventies; and it proved, with' ■ 
its celebrated Agreed State- 
ments, fruitful, beyond 'all 
expectation. 

Butler was also more widely ' • 
involved in relations with 
Anglicans: for example, io foe . 
1970s he was one of the-' 
Roman Catholic members of 
foe Churches' Unity Commis- 
sion which dealt with the' 
Covenant 

He was co-chairman of 
“English ARC" during 1971- 
82; and was twice given the- 
me Cross of St Augustine by 
foe Archbishop of Canterbury. . 

In public Butier gave foe ' 
impression of being a some- 
what reserved man. Certainly 
he was no extrovert, and ' 
preaching was never his forte, 
foil he loved intellectual dis- 
cussion, to which he brought 
aU his formidable analytical 
powers. To the personal prob-; 
terns' of others he always gave - 
sympaihMic understanding. 

Towards the end of his life 
he suffered increasing loss of

In his research and teaching, 
he ufasted on the . .highest

oigiict levels of research that

conservatives. As chairman of: 
the Oxford Centqp for Man- :

towards building a bridge: 
between the acade m ic and. 
business worlds. 

As Warden he was a person-

haps the social skill or foe - 
conversational brilliance of ' 
some heads of houses, but he 
. bad other -qualities, much 
' more important for someone - 
- who was to guide the growth 
ofa new foundation. c .; < 

. Above all he had a dear; ■ 
picture in his mind of how foe :

generation who spent Ihdr 
formative years going cross- 
eyed over screen goddesses 

instead of playing conkers wOI 

experience an undying frisson 
from the word “glamonr” — a 
Pronstian madeteine com- 
pounded of lipstick, cleavage, 
stocking-tops and immami^ 
coiffure. The 1960s came as a 
terrible shock to ns all, not 
least because they were in foil 
cotonr. Beginning a new three- 
parter on the role of women in 

the 'British film industry. Fif- 
ties Features (Channel 4 ) 
spoke not only to such imper- 
ishable monochrome divas as 
Sylvia Syms, but also to the 
pioneering women directors 
who endeavoured to make a 
living on the other side of the 
camera. Kay Mander observed 

that, in those days, “a nice girl 
wouldn't do that sort of thing” 
and reca ll ed , without apparent 
bitterness, how Michael Bat- ! 
con had dismissed her applica- i 
tion to be taken on as a trainee ' 
with the words “Women can't 
control a fihn ratit”. 

This was a fairly cosy 
treatment of a good subject, 
and the idea that Ungers most 
in the mind's eye is that the 
interviewees exhibited a pref- 
erence for beingfilmed next to 
cpt flowers. The feathered 
friends and enemies in Birds 
for AU Seasons (BBC2) had no 
such, scruples: trees, cliffs, 
creepers — it really was aB the 
saitte to them. 

Introducing die avian popu- 
lation of the temperate zones, 
Magnus Magnusson's frratity 
jocund narration pole-vanlted 
from continent to continent — 
“Meanwhile, in temperate 
China . . .** “Now to tem- 
perate Australia — ” — an 
unavoidable concomitant of 
zoning the subject-matter in 
this way. We also learnt that 
one in five great tits gets 
divorced. 

The birds under observation 
did their staff with effortless 
brilliance (you could tell they 
had been rehearsing), whether 
they were penguins climbing 
trees, owlets gulping voles' 
whole, herons villainously 
shading water with their wings 
to con the fish, or baby 
cuckoos putting their bocks 
into the serious business of 
turfing reed warUtis /bonr

off something faintly fiwai the 
smell, it was soon established, of 
little boys gorging on tropical fruit 
and '‘caught short” on the beach. 
The text was enticingly dear, at one 
with the limpid waters of the 
lagoon. 

■ The novel's reputation must 
have reached me, for I already 
knew that this was a serious book, 
written by a grown-up for the 
careful attention of other grown- 
ups. At that time I was eager to be 
involved in the ways of real books. 
1 started on the first page hungrily 
and read too quickly, for I formed 
the impression of -a boy with an 
enormous scar and a bird that 
could talk, i began again, more 
slowly this time, and was 
though I could not know it at the 
time, into the process whereby 
writers teach you how to read. Not 
all scars are on people; this one was 
in the fabric of the jungle. And the 
cry of a bird could be echoed by, 
and therefore resemble, the cry of a 
boy. 

Two related discoveries rave me 
immediate pleasure. The first was 
that in this , an adult book, adults 
and all their grey, impenetrable 
concerns were not prominent Here 
was the very stuff of my fantasy life 
and of my favourite childhood 
reading. For years I had day- 
dreamed of grown-ups conve- 
niently and painlessly dissolved (I 
didn't want them to suffer in any 
way), leaving me and a handful of 
competent friends to surmount 
dangers without ever bring called 
into tea. - 

I had read Treasure Island and 
Coral Island of course, and I knew 
all about the less respectable end of 
the tradition, Enid Blyton's adven- 
ture series in which four chums and 
a dog broke up international crime- 
rings in their summer holidays.

William Golding (left) was 
75 at the weekend: as part 
of a birthday tribute to our 
Nobel literary laureate, the 
novelist Ian McEwan 
(right) recalls reading Lord 
of the Flies as a schoolboy 

The unforgettable 
momentum of a 
childhood fantasy 



si vc and feasible about Golding 
was his apparent assumption that 
in a chad-dominated world things 
went wrong in a most horrible and 
interesting way. For— and this was 
the second discovery — 2 knew 
these boys. I knew what they were 
capable of I had seen us at h. As far 
as I was concerned, Golding’s 
island was a thinly disguised 
boarding school 

As a contemporary of Ralph, 
Piggy and Jack, I felt intimately 
acquainted with their problems, 
the most pressing of which — since 
I didn't want the boys rescued — 
seemed to be the difficulty of 
talki ng something through in a 
group to useful resolution. I read 
the accounts of the meetings 
around the conch, the inevitable 
drift and confusion, with an- 
guished recognition. At the age of 
.12 or 13 it was just possible, givena 
little privacy and necessity, to 
develop a fine’ of thought alone, to 
reach some kind of hazy conclu- 
sion. To do this -with a group of 
friends was near-impossible. 

We were at an age when we 
craved secret societies, codes, in- 


vented rituals and hierarchies; 
these all needed talking through 
before the fun could begin and 
countless elements conspired to 
subvert us: pure excitement, 
competitiveness, aggression, horse- 
play, power-play, boasting, the 
need to find a joke at every turn, 
wild, associative thinking and 
everyone talking at once. We could 
not organize a thing among our- 
selves. One’s own thoughts melted 
away. (“Ralph was puzzled by the 
shutter that flickered in his brain. 
There was something he wanted to 
say, then the shutter had come 
down.") 

Golding knew all about us. In 
Lord of the Flies I aw the 
messiness and insufficiencies of my 
tittle society spread out before me. 
For the first time in my life I was 
reading a book which did not 
depend on unlikeabie characters or 
villains for a source of tension or 
eviL What I bad known, without 
ever giving the matter much 
thought, from my crowded, dormi- 
tory existence, was confirmed and 
clarified; fife could be unhappily 
divisive, even go fabulously wrong, 
without anyone having to be 


extravagantly nasty. No one was to 
blame — it was how it was when we 
were together. 

I was uneasy when I came to the 
last chapters and read of the death 
of Piggy and the boys hunting 
Ralph down in a mindless pack. 
Only that year we had turned on 
two of our number m a vaguely 
similar way. A collective and 
unconscious decision was made, 
the victims were singled out and, as 
their lives became more miserable 
by the day, so the exhilarating, 
righteous urge to punish grew in 
the rest of us. 

Neither of them was an obvious 
candidate for victimization; nei- 
ther was ugly, stupid or weak. One 
combed his hair with a parting we 
found rather too precise. The other 
had an intimate, confiding manner 
and was sometimes over-generous 
with his sweets. Together we 
convinced ourselves the two of 
them were intolerable. Alone, one 
of us could have contemplated the 
daily humiliations, the little tor- 
tures we, the invincible; unknow- 
ing pack, inflicted on these two 
boys. Their parents had no choice

years later, when I came to write a 
novel myself, I could not resist the 
momentum of my childhood fanta-

model, for I found myself wanting' 
to describe a closed world of

The main casting is all over 
the place. As the paternal 
Menenius, Peter Kelly sub- 
stitutes a moustached middle- 
aged smoothie from whom no 
one in their senses would buy 
a second-hand chariot. Mene- 
nius may be a go-between, but 
he is not Pandarus. Charon 
Bourke's Virgilia is the most 
Roman figure in the show: a' 
pattern of stoical dignity 
suggesting worlds of feeling 
held in reserve. She also 
reverses the usual family 
heirareby in relation to Hilary 
Townley’s youthful Volum- 
nia, who comes over as a 
Golders Green mother crow- 
ing over her son's school 
report. 

The clue to Douglas 
Hodge's Coriolanus is his 
enraged death-scene response 
to being called a boy. It is the 
truth. Fresh-faced and grin- 
ning even at the height of 
defiance and contempt, he 
collapses abjectly under ma- 
ternal disapproval It is hard 
to believe in him as a warrior. 
The production requires him 
to do some extraordinary 
things: mugging, a passer-by to 
ask the way to Aufidius's 
house, and stripping naked for 
the plebeians to whom Shake- 
speare says he refuses to show 
his wounds. But one haif- 
nelson is all we see of his 
battlefield prowess, and he 
finally dies from being lifted 
up in the air - evidently from 
shock.

American giant squeezes into port 



number of Soviet SS 20 and 
American Pershing and cruise 
missiles in Europe, as we]] as 
cutting the number of Soviet 
missiles in Aria. 

. Mr Shevardnadze an- 
nounced on Saturday that the 
Soviet Union had dropped its 
demand that a freeze on 
British and French nuclear 
forces be part of an accord on 
intermediate-range missiles. 

The US has suggested at the 
Geneva amis control talks 
that each side's medium-range 
weapon deployments should 
be- limited globally to 200 
miSsfle warheads, of which 
100 would be within range of 
Europe. The Soviet Union 
would deploy its remaining 
100 warheads in its Asian 
territory, while the US could 
keep 100 warheads based in 
on its own territory. 

According to Western 
counts, the Soviet Union has 
810 warheads in Europe, 
mounted on 270 SS 20 mis- 
siles, and 513 warheads in 
Aria, mounted on 171 SS 20s. 
The US has deployed 108 
Pershing 2 missies in West 
Germany, the total number to 
be deployed in Europe, and I 
128 cruise missiles in Britain, | 
Italy and Belgium. 

The proposed new limits are 
much lower than previous 
ones put privately to the 
Soviet Union, and seem to 
have been the direct result of 
discussions in Washington 
earlier this month with Soviet 
arms control officials, at 
which the Soviet side dem- 
onstrated considerable flexi- 
bility on deployments in 
Europe, and a willingness to 
make some small concessions 
on deployments in Aria. 

: Mr Shevardnadze, speaking 
at the Soviet Embassy on 
Saturday after the two-day 
session with Mr Shultz, said 
there was a “genuine chance" 
to settle the Daniloff issue in a 
way acceptable to both rides. 
“I stress there is a possibility 
of resolving that issue without 
pain in the interest of both 
countries. Please give us a 
chance through diplomatic 
channels."

Sir Ian says that he does not 
believe Mr Walloer shared the 
Prime Minister’s confidence 
in him and that he was much 
more concerned with political

“I am sorry that in the scores 


of meetings I have had with

Nature notes 


1 Starlings are: . roasting 
communally a gain, both in ' 
dense woods and on city build- 
ings.- Most of these are British 
buds, but they will soon be 
joined by vast flocks of winter 
viators from Germany and 
Poland. Wrynecks have beconfe 
rare breeders in Britain, but 
passage migrants are now 
appearing in the eastern cotm- 
tres; these neat brown wood- 
peckers feed on the ground as 
wed as in the treetops. 

Manx shearwaters have left 
their nesting holes and have 
spread all round die coast, 
where they skim whh stiff wings 
over the waves. Practically all of. 
them will move on to mote 
southern waters. Kittiwakes are 
also appearing everywhere off-- 
shore; they are dainty gulls with j 
a soft, dark eye, and will stay 
throughout the winter. 

Some horse-chestnut trees 
have red or yellow crowns, 
though boys knocking down the 
cookers find that they are still 
white, or only streaked with 
glossy brown. Hawthorn trees 
also have red pa t ches, and 
Lombardy poplars are flecked 
with pale yellow. Beec h m ast is 
scarce this year and there are 
very few titmice in the beech- 
woods. 

Golden rod is in flower on 
railway embankments; 
nipplewort is still common on 
roadsides, and daisies continue 
to open on lawns.

1 Pay rises 
‘threaten 
exports’ 

By Derek Harris 

Industrial Editor 

Surging labour costs from 
too-high pay settlements are 
threatening a prospective 
improvement in exports, the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry said yesterday. 

> The employers' organiza- 
tion has called for moderation 
in pay settlements, backing 
similar demands by Mr Nigel 
Lawson, the Chancellor. 

But the CBI has also called 
again for interest rates to be 
reduced to enhance British 
international competitiveness. 

The CBI has been taking a 
gloomier view of growth pros- 
pects bat its September treads 
survey, out yesterday, has 
detected a small pick-op in 
ontput reflecting some 
improvement in export order 
books. These are now* at a 
\/ “slightly better” level than the 
low points seen in July and 
Aagnst, the snrvey says. 

• Bat this is unlikely to 
persuade the CBI to change its 
output forecast for 1986, 
which it reduced from 2A per 
cent to 2 per cent at the start of 
this month. 

The warning came as the 
Chancellor was preparing to 
chair tomorrow's September 
meeting of the National Eco- 
nomic Development .Cponci] 
which is due to dismiss: a 
Neddy paper on current indus- 
trial capacity and levels of 
investment, particularly in 
manufacturing. 

The CBI trends smrey re- 
iterates the expectation that 
„ manufacturing industry will 
j pick np slowly in the remain- 
ing months of this year. Out- 
put has recovered from the 
lower levels of the last three 
months but is still not as 
buoyant as in the spring. 

Bat export order books 
overall are still at their weak- 
est for almost three years. 
Total orders remain little 
changed from the August level 
and have stayed fairly flat 
since April. Price increases 
are expected to remain 
moderate.

urging everyone wanting 
shares in its flotation to hand

not officially close until 1 0 am 
on Wednesday. 

Since the offer price was 
announced, more than a week

sized that the amplest and 
safest method of ensuring that 
applications are received is for 
people to hand in their forms 
at TSB branches before close 
of business tomorrow. 

Although most branches 
close at about 3.30pm, some 
stay open until 7pm.

some brokers seem deter-

though the bank has reduced 
costs for investors, by nego- 
tiating a special lower 
commission structure with 
brokers.

, Moves to discourage poten- 
tial bid attempts emerged over 
the weekend from Midland 
Bank and Pearson, the con- 
glomerate which owns Lazard 
Brothers and the Financial 
Times. 

Both companies have been 
the subject of intense .bid 
speculation for many months. 

Pearson appears to be nego- 
tiating a small cross-share- 
holding with the Hong Kong 
trading company Hutchison 
Whampoa. 

Hutchison has built up a 
stake in Pearson and the two

companies are believed to 
have held talks in ihe last two 1 
weeks. i 

Lord Blakenham, Pearson's s 
chairman, said Hutchison was < 
’ a friendly shareholder and had 
no intention of making a bid. 

He insisted that Pearson ‘ 
wanted to remain indep- j 

endenL . t 

At the same tune. Midland 
Bank officials confirmed ru- 1 
mours that the bank had 
sought advice from SG War- j 
burg, the merchant bank, oh a c 
defence strategy against any I 
potential bid. 1 

Midland's own in-house c 


merchant bank. Samuel Mon- 
tagu. although involved, has 
not taken a lead in advising on 
a defence because of potential 
conflicts of interest 

Midland officials said the 
anti-bid strategy had been in 
place for several months now, 
before Sir Christopher Mc- 
Mahon took over as chief 
executive earlier this month. 

A spokesman added: “It is 
just good housekeeping. Any 
company is more vulnerable 
to a bid once it is off the 
bottom, as Midland now 
clearly is."

After a week of tortuous 
negotiations, ministers of 74 
nations have launched an 
historic new trade round that 
is expected to trigger a decade- 
long process of rewriting the 
rules of local commerce in 
newer service industries such 
as insurance and banking, in 
which Britain is a world 
leader. 

The successful launch of the 
new round, titled the “Uru- 
guay Round" in honour of the 
country of its birth, is regarded 
as an important victory by 
British and European officials 
who had feared the talks 
would collapse. 

Both the developed and 
developing countries which 
are members of the General 
Agreement of Tariffs and 
Trade (Gatt) had threatened 
to walk out of the talks earlier 
in the week because of dis- 
putes over the key issues of 
agriculture and the news- 
service industries. 

Although no one wanted to 
name the “winners" and 
“losers" of the week-long 
talks, some nations came out 
better than others. 

The United States, which 
went into the talks with four 
key objectives, emerged with 
everything it requested, mak- 
ing only minor concessions. In 
the process it formed new 
alliances with development 
countries which are expected 
to have a big impact on trade 
flows in the years ahead. 

Mr Paul Channon, Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
lndukry, said British and 
European Community objec- 
tives had been met. 

The agenda of the new 
round will not only consider a 
broad range of trade issues but 
will also break new ground by 


attempting to reduce agri- 
cultural subsidies in Europe, 
the US and elsewhere which 
have been blamed for global 
over-production and disrup- 
tion of world markets. 

The Community was succ- 
essful in inserting language in 
the communique lhat did not 
tingle oui Europe's Common 
Agricultural Policy, but Brit- 
ish officials said the agreement 
nonetheless means that the 
CAP is under fire. 

The ambitious aim of the 
new round is not only to forge 
better ties between developed 
and developing countries by 
protecting the sovereign rights 
of weaker nations, but also to 
halt the slide towards pro- 
tectionism. 

Growing protectionism in 
recent years has threatened to 
undermine Gau 

in the final communique 
ministers agreed to begin 
negotiations in the areas of 
agriculture, trade-related in- 
vestment, intellectual prop- 
erty rights, services and in- 
ternational rule-making. 

To satisfy developing na- 
tions. which feel isolated un- 
der Gatt. the process will not 
formally be handled by Gatt 
even though it will come 
under the umbrella of the 
Geneva-based organization. 

A single trade negotiating 
committee to be named by the 
92 contracting parties of Gatt 
over the next few months will 
oversee the negotiations. 

Officials said the success of 
the talks will very much 
depend on the composition of 
the committee and the proce- 
dures it enacts. The commit- 
tee has been charged with the 
task of completing the talks in 
four years but ministers said 
this was overly ambitious. 


De Larosiere ‘to leave 
the IMF this year’ 


From Our Correspondent, 

M Jacques de Larosiere, 
managing director of the 
Internationa] Monetary Fund 
. for the past eight years, has 
told his board that he plans to 
resign at the end of this year, 
officials said yesterday. 

M de Larosiere made the 
surprise announcement at a 
meeting of the executive 
board in Washington last Fri- 
day. He plans a public 
announcement during the an- 
nual meeting of the IMF at the 
World Bank this week. 

The decision to resign is 
mainly for “personal reasons" 
but M de Larosiere also said 
he believes it is the right time 
for new leadership at the IMF 
which is about to undertake a 
new complicated surveillance 
role over the economic perfor- 
mance of major economies. 

At the same time, the IMF is 
embarking on a new relation- 
ship with the World Bank, 


Ponte del Este, Uruguay 

which has been charged with 
the task of handling the me- 
dium to long term tax prob- 
lems of developing countries. 

Officials said yesterday that 
several names have been 
floated as possible successors 
to M de Larosiere including 
the Dutch Finance Minister, 
Mr Onno Ruding, who is 
chairman of the IMF policy 
board, and Signor Lamberto 
Dini, deputy governor of the 
Bank of Italy. 

French officials said that M 
de Larosiere's timing was also 
influenced by the rise to power 
of their Prime Minister. M 
Jacques Chirac. He has in- 
dicated to friends that this 
may be a better time for him 
to resume a career in the 
French Government rather 
than wait until mid-19S8 
when his second term as 
managing director of the Fund 
would have expired.

Nuclear fears may increase 
EEC coal use by up to 20%

The political and environ- 
mental fall-out from the 
Chernobyl nuclear power 
plant disaster could lead to the 
European coal Industry 


as modi as 20 per cent withm 
the next 20 years, according to 
a report issued today by DRI 
Europe. s . ' 

The report, commissioned 
from the international energy 
specialists by tui untuned en- 
ergy industry, suggests that 
there is little likelihood of 
existing nuclear power plants 
being dosed before the end of 
their design lifeJU suggests 
that nuclear power plants now 
at the planning stage wSH be 
replaced by coal-fired power 
stations. 

The Central Electricity 
Generating Board (CEGB) 
has already warned that any 
Government veto on its plans 
to build a new mdear poww 
station at Sizewefl in Suffolk 
end a family of up to six 
similar stations using the 
Sizewell pressnrized water- 
cooled reactor (FWR) design 
ttonfcL that several new 


coal-fired stations would have 
to be ordered. 

The CEGB’s own scientific 
staff have already produced 
designs for a new generation of 
coal-burning stations which 
could be developed. 

Because of the present im- 
balance within the. national 
grid — the new stations are 
needed in the south — the 
CEGB is concerned that plan- 
ning difficulties will also be 
encountered when it seeks 
either to bdU new power 
stations or improve the exist- 
ing national grid by bonding 
larger transnrcsioa towers. 

The DRI report says that 
even assuming the Sizewell 
plant is built and two similar 
plants are in operation by 
2005, the demand for electric- 
ity will mean that the coal 
requirement will rise from its 
present 79 million tonnes a 
year to 92 million tonnes in 
2005. 

In the mid 1990s, however, 
DRI suggests that demand wit] 

fall to 75 million tonnes a year. 

Coal's share of the UK 
market in the 1990s wiU be 


protected from lower world oil 
prices, the report says, by 
substantial government in- 
centives to industry to bofld 
new coal-fired boiler capacity. 

In Europe as a whole the 
capital cost of new coal-fired 
boiler systems - considerably 
higher than gas or oil-fired 
plant of a similar output — is 
seen as a constraint to the 
growth of the coal market. 

However, DRI does suggest 
that coal production costs are 
faffing and that Britain is 
doing better in this area than 
its main European 
competitors. 

The figures show that av 
erage production costs in the 
UK are now running at the 
equivalent of 84 European 
currency units (ECU) per 
tonne. Ln Germany the figure 
is 117 ECUs and in France 
and ft»| ginm between 122 and 
114 ECUsJBnt there is little 
prospect of lower costs_ in 
Germany, France or Beljpmn 
white in Britain productivity 
has been rising since the end of 
the miners' strike.

Uncertainty at Geneva will 
wreck Opec’s fragile gains 


The next meeting of the 
Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Countries in Ge- 
neva on October 6 could be 
more than usually crucial for 
its members. If the meeting is 
inconclusive, acrimonious, 
or fails to do more thyn 
continue the present agree- 
ment for another month or 
two, the inevitable un- 
certainty will mean they all 
stand to lose the price gains of 
the last few weeks. 

The importance of 
psychology in the oil market - 
is well demonstrated by the 
behaviour of the oil price 
since the last meeting at the 
beginning of August, when it 
was agreed that Opec mem- 
bers would trim their output 
during September and Octo- 
ber to the 16 million barrel a 
day ceiling agreed in 1984. 
This ceiling excludes 1.1 mil- 
lion bpd of natural gas liquids 
(NGLs). 

In the four weeks preceding 
implementation of the agree- 
ment, Opec pumped out oil at 
nearly 20 milium bands a 
day — at least 2 million more 
than was justified by 
consumption. That oil is now 
on its 50-day voyage to 
Europe, and will continue to 
arrive at Europe's refineries 
until the thud, week in 
October. 

Oil is, therefore, still flood- 
ing into North-west Europe 
as East as it was before Opec’s 
agreement, and wffl continue 
to do so for another month. 
But as so on as Opec made its 
announcement to cut back,; 
the oil {nice jumped from its 
July low of under S9 a barrel 
to S15 a barrel, purely on 
expectations of a tighter 
market 

Although all this floating 
oil is having some depressing 
effect on prices, Brent has 
remained above $13 a barrel 
helped by the bombing of the 
Iranian export terminal at 
Khaig Island and the Kuwait 
tanker. 

Opec, by all accounts, 
hasbeen doing its best to stick 
to its agreement and, by past 
standards, is making a 
reasonable job of it As usual, 
no-one is including the neu- 
tral zone in their quota — one 
source of leakage over the 
ceiling, amounting to 360,000 
bpd wared equally between 
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. 

Another trouble spot is the 
United Arab Emirates. The

Brent spot price chart 
through netback jungle 


The widespread ase o f 
netback pricing means the 
market has to rely on the 
Brent spot price to chut the 
movements of internationally 
traded erode. The drawback 
is that the Brent market is 
thin on occasion and liable to 
wild fluctuations when ike 
market is nervous. 

As Opec attempts to come 
to grips with the problem of 
overproduction, the question 
looms as to whether it can 
reintroduce official prices. 

Official prices can omly be 
imposed if there is not quite 
enough oil to meet de m a n d. 
While there is a production 
surplus, a buyer wfll not ship 
oil to a market 50 or 60 days' 
away, taking the risk that the 

1984 ceiling ignores fields 
which have come on stream 
since then, and in Dubai's 
case the amounts of new 
production capacity are 
substantial Against a quota 
of 0.95 million bpd, the UAE 
is believed to be producing 
close to 1.5 million bpd, with. 
Dubai being the source of the 
extra output. 

There have been some 
cutbacks among non-Opec 
producers approaching 
400,000 bpd, some of it 
involumaiy, to help offset 
this. The involuntary cut- 
backs have been mainly 
among stripper wells 
(producing under 10 bpd) in 
the United States. It is es- 
timated that stripper wells, 
producing collectively at least 


price could fan daring the 


Effectively, setback pricing 
Is a way of tarmag long-had 
crude into short-haul crude, 
thereby reducing risk for the 
purchaser. It is stzB widely 
used, but since Opec decided 
to rein in its production, 
discounts on netback prices 
have all but disappeared. 

Although netback pricing 
is just a device to reduce risk 
for the buyer, It has the effect 
of obscuring prices, makh« it 
di fficult for the market to 
work out tiie true price of oiL 

Unless Opec creates a 
shortage of oil, it looks as if 
netback pricing is here to 
stay, at least for the time 
being. _ 

150,000 bpd have been closed 
in the US because the low oil 
price has made them un- 
economical. But it would 
only need a price of $16 a 
barrel to turn the taps on 
again in most cases. 

Opec has long been been 
canvassing non-members for 
voluntary cut-backs to help 
support the price, with little 
success. Mexico has been its 
main ally, presently believed 
to be holding production to 

150.000 bpd. Norway re- 
cently joined in, volunteering 

80.000 bpd in November and 
December. Other countries 
where Opec may hope to find 
some co-operation are Egypt, 
Oman and Brunei; but the 
amounts would be tiny.

on manufactured goods. 

They can protect against

ing over £40 billion a yeac 
Keen interest has already 
been shown by manufacturers 
of video tapes, plane tickets and 
sports events tickets. 

The chemicals also have 
great potential for currency, 
passports, travellers cheques 
and credit cards. 


Ptessey has been chosen to provide a £3 millkm Action Information 
Systran for the assaolt ship, HMS Feadess. The system, to be known 
as NAimS-L, will improve significantly the shqft capability in. 
amphibious warfare and setf-defence. 

NAUTIS systems are based aircraft, helicopters and surface 



on NAUTIC - the Plessey 
Naval Autonomous Intelligent 
Console. 

NAimS-L for HMS Fear- 
less comprises seven NAUTIC 
consoles. 

The consoles are networked, 
using a military standard data 
highway to maintainaiepDcaof 
the command system database 
which is available indepen- 
dently to each console user 

For HMS Fearless, 
NAUTIS-L interfaces with

radars, IFE helicopter tran- 
sponders, navigation sensors 
and plotting table system, as 
well asseif-defence weapons,to 
integrate comprehensive tac- 
tical presentations to the 
command team. 

Automatic tracking of 


units is provided in each 
console. 

This contract is the second 
successive :win for NAUTIS 
systems for Royal Navy 
command and control under 
the competitive procurement 
policy of the MoD. 

The first, NAUTIS-M, is 
now in advanced development 
for the RNTs new minehunters. 

The order mil enhance 
further the already consider- 
able export potential for 
NAUTIS-tased systems. 

The modular architecture of 
NAUTIS allows the NAUTIS- 
L consoles to be re-used with 
minimal development in 
system variants, comprising 
one or more NAUTIC con- 
soles, for amphibious warfare 
and other ship applications.

Opec will be able to cobble 
something together next 
month; the market seems to 
believe it Share prices appear 
to imply a belief in $15 to $20 
prices, as do sales of oil 
assets. 

Most compelling of all, 
stocks are being bunt up. The 
professionals do not build up 
stocks if they expea the price 
to fell. 

But however sensible it 
might be for Opec to stand 
firm, as one seasoned oilman 
said: “It would be remarkable 
it after all the years of agony, 
they suddenly got it all 
together”. , 

The temptation wfll be for 
Opec to anticipate winter 
demand at its October meet- 
ing, and consider raising the. 
ceiling on production to, say, 

1 8 million bpd. This could be 
disastrous. 

To begin with, it takes no 
account of stocks, which are 
normally .drawn down over 
the winter. Perhaps more 
serious, it gives Opec some- 
thing to argue about The 
UAE will revive its daijnsfbr 
an increase to 1.6 million 
bpd, and the other members 
will look for similar increases 
for themselves. 

Lade of agreement would 
be devastating for prices be- 
cause stocks would be run. 
down in anticipation of over- 
production, making expecta- , 
dons of lower prices sdf- 
fuififfing. : 

For stable prices, Opec I 
must agree to stick to 16 
million bpd. At this level the 
leakage from Dubai, the Neu- 
tral Zone and NGLs can be 
accommodated The industry 
will be less likely to run down 
stocks, and once more we will 
have a self-fulfilling 
prophesy. 

The market cannot afford 
to be complacent. There is 
plenty of room for things to 
go wrong. The Iran-Iraq war 
seems to be boiling up again 
and could erupt before, dur- 
ing or after the Opec meeting. 

History teaches os that any 
attempt to deliver a death- 
dealing Mow to Iraq win &0 
flat Worst of all would be a 
peace settlement, bat., -a 
continuation of the war is 
most likely. If so, it wfll be 
just another uncertainty in a 
market that looks guaranteed 
to stay jittery.

then- earlier errors of judg- 
ment 

What seemed to set toe 
process in motion was the loss 
of nerve by investors in New 
York. The belated apprecia- 
tion by tire Anteiicaris that the 
world economy was running 
dread fairly briskly had im- 
portant repercussions for in- 
terest rates- ■ 

It coukl be atgued pre- 
viously that cuts, .were - nec- 
essary to raise demand to 
sensible levels: subsequently it 
had to be accepted that tire 
more or less satisfactory pace 
of activity ruled out across- 
the-board redactions. 

Bond markets everywhere 
were shaken by this realiza- 
tion, but the pain was not 
uniform. Where an economy 
was seen to be beading to- 
ward§ excess demand — or 
deficient supply — tire re- 
assessment : was particularly 
severe. 

The United States, with a 
large, mid rising baiance-of- 
paytnents deficit, a falling 
level of unemployment and an 
inflation rate that was no 


payments balance is probably 
central to the discussion. 

There is, admittedly, a 
widespread expectation that 
tire current account will run a 
large deficit next year but 
those who are most vocal in 
urgingthesegkjotny forecasts 
have an appalling track 
record; 

it may be recalled that this 
year it was claimed that the 
country would start chalking 
up red ink totals as soon as the 
ofl price slipped below $20 per 
barrel In fact, toe price fell to 
$11.50 in July but toe ac- 
counts recorded a surplus. ~ 

Now that the oil market is 
firmer — and likely to stay 
there in the light of the 
accelerating real growth in tire 
industrial world — it might be 
more realistic to envisage the 
maintenance of a surplus 
throughout the next year or so. 
In that case, it could be 
appropriate to cast Britain 
slightly closer to tire German- 
Japanese paradigm than tire 
American one.

Economies which con-

the most obvious examples of 
this phenomenon. Although

not too bad. 

For the moment, moreover

in Britain (OS per cent per

ccives reasonably gen erwa

rate differential of 2 pa cent

The conclusion, perhaps, a 
that, while Britain's inflanqu 
tendencies are not optimal, 
neither are they so ba d as jto 
justify the market’s present 

pessimism.

analysis that once it was, but xt 
can occasionally still stir the

Last week's announcement 
that public sector borrowing 
in Britain, last month amoun- 
ted to £1.8 billion was greeted 
with dismay by the conMgfr 
nity, even though toe figure 
was low in absolute termsand 
massively below the son. of 
figures being chalked up in 
most other industrial count- 
ries. , .'J 

In stark contrast to the US, 
where conservative account- 
ing has long since expired, the 
authorities here have been g 
model of rectitude. 

Why, in the light of these 
mostly middlfr-of-the-range 
economic statistics, the intcj;- 
national investor should have 
chosen to be so dismissive of 
Britain's currency and btiad 
markets is not dear. 

Our feeling is that the 
conundrum can only be ex- 
plained by reference to a 
predisposition to bearishness 
— one which gives full vent to 
the flights of sentiment but 
which allows hard-core ev- 
idence only a minor influence. 

This certainly fils in with 
the published data on the 
appetite of toe British investor 
for foreign securities. This was 
almost insatiable last year and 
the first half of this year, when 
the capita] outflow swallowed 
the whole of the country's $5 
billion surplus on toe current 
account mid required' that the 
Bank look for another $4

(US NOTEBOOK 


The awful 
prospect 
faced 
by Baker 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

The biggest shock last week 
was the violent reaction of the 
bond markets to the rising 
mark and the dollar's fall 
below 2 marks precipitated by 
Mr James Baker's attempt to 
pressurize West Germany and 
Japan into more stimulator} 
economic measures. 

Tim December Treasury' 
bond futures, which dosed at 
94-/u on September 12, 
closed down a full point last 
Thursday at 93 22 /ai. 

Mindless fear of inflation 
'lay behind the violence of the 
reaction. 

When Mr Baker on Thurs- 
day said the dollar still had a 
long way to go down, and the 
dollar fell for the first time 
below 2 marks, the bond 
markets recoiled in fear (de- 
spite good economic news of 
low US second-quarter growth 
and the lowest rise in the GNP 
deflator — 1J8 per cent for 20 
years). 

p ^l Mr Baker now faces the 
grim option — what I called the 
“nightmare scenario" — that 
as the dollar collapses (as it 
must), interest rates wfll rise 
in America - there will be a 
finanrial panic — all to be 
followed by a recession. 

In my original conception of 
the “nigbtniare scenario" I 
imagined the Federal Reserve 
would impose the monetary 
brakes as the dollar went into 
a free falL I did not imagine 
the bond market would do the 
job for the Fed. 

So Mr Baker feces the awful 
prospect that as he forces the 
dollar down he will create a 
panic inside America, 
originating in a bond market 
increasingly terrified of infla- 
tion. The bond market panic is 
bound to spread to the more 
publicly visible stock market, 
precipitating yet another col- 
lapse in that market 
The bond market is 
approaching a shambles. The 
greatest fiwivwl market in 
the world is subject to every 
vagary of rumour, half-di- 
gested economic information, 
exaggerated fears of inflation 
and the expected economic 
growth. 

Since August 29, the yield 
on the 10 -year US Treasury 
qote has risen from 6.93 per 
cent to 7.60 per cent and on the 
30-year cash bond from 7.20 

percent tp7 f 74 per cent. 

This rise in rates wiO bare. 
its effect in killing say inapt 
ent economic expansion. 

It will also have its doe 
effect in smashing stock - 
prices, whose level has been 
boosted over the past two 
years by rising p/e ratios, not 
by rising earnings. 

In an attempt to calm bond 
market fears that the Fed’s 
well-intentioned efforts to pro- 
mote a higher rate of economic 
growth would lead to damag- 
ing inflation, Mr Manuel 
Johnson, the Fed’s vice-chair- 
man, durkg the week in a long 
speed told the market that 
the Fed would in effect 
“pause” in its hitherto expan- 
sive policy. 

This had the effect of throw- 
ing the bond market into a 
lather of fear that the Fed 
would tighten op — something 
the bond market should sorely 
welcome as a step towards 
buttoning down the disinfla- 
tion that the bond market has 
benefited from so greatly since 
the middle of 1984. 

Even disregarding the bur- 
den of debt servicing costs 
being laid np for the future, the 
domestic impact of the current 
account dedfit in throttling 
economic growth is too great to 
be ignored, especially at a tune 
when the Republican Party 
feces loss of control of the 
Senate within two months. 

Either the West Germans 
and the Japanese wOJ have to 
make major changes in their 
thinking and actions, or the 
US wfll have to impose some 
form of sharp inhibitions on 
imports — import taxes, im- 
port controls or other such 
measures, supplemented by a 
tightening of Federal 
Reserve's domestic policy. 
Certainly the drive to posh the 
dollar down will not and 
cannot be arrested. 

Whatever course is taken, 
the US - and the world - 
feces a recession as the “grave 
imbalances” of which Mr Pte! 
Vokker, the Fed chairman, 
spoke in he recent se mina l 
speech to the Aspen Institute 
in Colorado are finally 
redressed. 


COMMENT 


Time to patch up the 
global framework 


The generation of rising prosperity 
after 1945 was built on three prin- 
ciples of the world trading order: 
stable exchange rates, lubricated by 
liquidity in the International Mone- 
tary Fund; loans from the rich to the 
wanom and developing nations 
through the World Bank; and multi- 
lateral, non-discriminatory trade en- 
shrined in the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade. 

Stable exchange rates outside conti- 
nental Europe have largely been 
abandoned. . Protectionist measures, 
abuse of Gati dumping provisions and 
bilateral trade deals have multiplied. 
And it is no accident that the decline 
of these two principles is responsible 
for many of the problems of the world 
economy. 

The system came into being only 
because of strong leadership by the 
United States. America's leadership 
was matched by its generosity. And 
although Washington effectively con- 
trolled the World Bank (through its 20 
per cent shareholding) and the IMF, 
all had a say. The system has declined 
principally because America’s domi- 
nant economic strength was 
unsustainable and the most powerful 
country ceased wholly to believe in 
the principles. 

Hence, the US Treasury has succes- 
sively forced the dollar up through 
high interest rates to fuel its boom 
with foreign savings, and then forced 
it down with equal rapidity in an 
attempt to cure its trade deficit. Such 
moves are disruptive — if not so 
obviously as the oil price rises. 

And since adverse shocks act faster 
than sustainable growth builds, this 
process tends to reduce the growth of 
the world economy over a period of 
years. 

President Reagan has resisted the 
most sweeping congressional moves 
to protection, but the United States 
has still been a leader in trade 
discrimination and the growth of bi- 
lateral deals, often at the expense of 
developing countries whose debt bur- 
den was exacerbated by high interest 
rates and the high dollar. 

The World Bank, as its annual 
report issued today records, remains 
the strongest pillar. Loans to finance 
restructuring programmes, now al- 
most^a fifth of lending, are the most 
successful element thus far in the 
Baker plan to wean developing coun- 
tries from IMF-style austerity to 
necessary growth. 

But there have been a few ominous 
.signs- -The US, .for instance, opposed 
$1 billion . (£690 million) of World 
Bank loans to Brazil, ostensibly on 
quite reasonable environmental 
grounds. But the US also had doubts 
because some of the loan projects 
threatened to strengthen Brazil in 
markets the US itself desparately 
needs to exploit or defend. 

The US Congress could be the 
stumbling block to an expansion of 
the World Bank’s capital base which 
will be needed next year if its loan 
commitments, currently between 
$ 1 3.5 billion and $17 billion, are to be 
sustained above $14. 5 billion. The US 
also appears out on a limb in resisting 
continuation of the temporary “en- 
larged access” of developing countries 
to IMF quota loans next year. 

It would be wrong to paint the US 


as the villain in this piece. The rise of 
Europe and Japan was bound to turn 
the United States from the status of a 
noble patriarch lo that of a country 
sharing common cares. Both the 
European Community countries and 
Japan have been happy to follow iheir 
own economic self-interest, bend the 
rules to suit and rely on the United 
States to keep the orderly financial 
and trading system going. 

If that system is not to be tom apart 
by ever greater short-ierm financial 
fluctuations, policy cooperation is 
needed to restore more stable - not 
fixed — exchange races. Europe and 
Japan must accept a greater role in 
sustaining the system. Leading 
developing countries must accept that 
rising prosperity means losing special 
concessions. .And the American pubjic 
needs to be re-convcried to its 
principles. 

The agreement at Puma del Este to 
start a new Gait trade round, while 
bom of unseemly haggling and brink- 
manship, could be an important step 
in the right direction. India and Brazil 
did agree to discuss services. The 
European Community, whose rood 
dumping is now the greatest single 
scandal in world trade, was dragged 
into discussing agricultural trade. 

U remains only a slim hope that the 
prospect of years of difficult negotia- 
tions will be enough, as the new World 
Bank president Barber Conable sug- 
gested, to stiffen the backs of US 
politicians against protectionist 
lobbies. 

At the IMF meeting, the issue will 
be whether Germany and Japan ivilf 
do enough to stimulate their econo- 
mies to persuade the United States to 
drop the exchange rale war it is 
currently waging to stave off rapid 
economic adjustment at home. It 
would clearly be counter productive 
to engage in a disruptively large 
stimulus. But gestures would be 
helpful and Japan needs a domestic 
spending boost to help offset export 
losses. 

Bui Japan should make its greatest 
contribution by providing more of 
World Bank aid to the poorest 
nations: by subscribing special funds 
to the Bank’s International Develop- 
ment Agency, over and above the 
$11.5 billion expected to be sub- 
scribed generally. Since it already 
subscribes almost as much as the US 
to this free loan fund. Japan under- 
standably wants a bigger 
shareholding. That would have to 
come from the US and will dearly 
need some tact 

This is not the moment to demand 
that the US/European hegemony over 
the international institutions be bro- 
ken and a Japanese be installed as next 
World Bank president It will surely 
have to come. 

For the moment however, it is vital 
to patch up the postwar system in an 
attempt to reintroduce some sense of 
stability. Growth in output and world 
trade may be lower than either the US 
or developing countries would like. It 
is much more important that all 
sections of the world economy 
achieve some sort of economic growth 
simultaneously for the first time in 
many years.

Churches peel down theatre posters 

• and pews are resumed. And for the 
Hundreds of people who are employed in 

; numerous different areas of work, to 
: cope with the thousands of performers 
and tounsis during the Edinburgh 
restival it's back to university, college, 
or sits, vacant in the Evening News. 

Fro Edinburgh Festival Fringe, that 
began spontaneously in 1947 with eight 
..companies and had 494 companies 
taking part this year, plays a large part In 
■creating employment — often providing 
; an opportunity, a channel where creativ- 
ity, initiative and talent can flourish. 

Although the blossoming season is 
short, with the bulk of people employed 
Tor just one month or so, the experience 
- gamed is cherished and can often lead to 
more permanent work. 

I talked to Mhairi Mackenzie Robin- 
son, the administrator of the Fringe. She 
. works with her assistant Trisha Emblem 
an year round organizing and running 
the biggest show on earth. 

From April the team of two become 
four and by the time the Festival is in fill! 
swing the number of people involved in 
the administration expands to 60. “We 
get over 400 applications from all over 
the world from people who want to work 
for the Fringe - 90 per cent of the 
applicants are women. 

• “When men do apply they are often 
rather sloppy with their applications, not 
bothering to send in CVs, for instance. I 
would like to have a balanced team of 

■ men and women but it's not always 
possible. I've been in the Fringe office for 
nine seasons and it really does seem as 
though women are generally better at the 
job. 

“Women seem to have more initia- 
tive. something you need a lot of in this 
job. And women don't crack as easily 
under pressure - they just get on with the 
job. Often the job can be fairly tedious 
with' long shifts. 

“We employ people to do a variety of 
'jobs, ranging from ticket sales at tele- 
phone. postal and counter to informa- 
tion. Most of the jobs require a numerate 
ability and a good clear English. I also 
like people to know Edinburgh well. For 
instance, in interviews this year I asked 
people where St Mary's Cathedral is...” 

To which I. Edinburg her that I am, 
stared blankly...my hopes already 
. thwarted for a job in next year's Frinjge. 
After putting the record straight Mhairi

told me what she looks for in her staff 
“Loads of personality, zest, stamina and 
initiative. Most of the staff are students 
and graduates — but not all 

“There is no summer job quite like the 
Fringe — and an excellent one for people 
who wish to go on and work in arts 
administration, theatre, journalism, film 
making, publishing, etc. Our students 
have a variety of subjects between them; 
theology, biochemistry, history, for 
instance. It really isn't important what 
degree you have or don't have. As I 
stressed, it's personality that counts.” 

Mhairi is a psychology graduate. “I 
was always interested in the humanistic 
side of psychology and certainly now my 
job involves a great deal of contact with 
people. 1 feel that I’m able to do a job like 
this because I think I am a tolerant 
person and also able to handle poten- 
tially difficult situations weLL" She began 
her relationship with ihe Fringe while 
she was an Edinburgh schoolgirl, work- 
ing during the summer — proof of the 
foot in the door adage. 

But what of the front line squad — the 
performers? This year there were 6,000 
of them in 494 companies, performing in 
Edinburgh at more than 100 venues. 
Long before the show gets on the road, 
interested theatre groups are asked to

Hie artist has a 
chance to get out 
and be recognized 

contact the Fringe office where Mhairi or 
Trisha will suggest that the groups visit 
Edinburgh and talk ideas, hopes and 
plans over with them. 

“We are here” Mhairi said, “to help 
people realize their ambitions. Bat for 
tilings to run smoothly depends largely 
on them. I’ve seen many groups come a 
cropper because they -were badly or- 
ganized. We ask fora £160 participation 
fee to cover administrative costs. 

“We will then insert the company into 
the Fringe programme, the daily diary of 
events and we will sell tickets for them. 
Deadline . for entry into the Fringe 
programme is May I.” 

The Fringe office will take Th per cent 
from ticket sales, and this is their 
survival money, along with grants; 
£18,000 from the Arts Council; £13,500 
from the district; and £5,200 from the 
region. Yet it is the art of survival that is 
becoming increasingly difficult for the 
Fringe. 

Their little Royal Mile office is 
bursting at the seams, money is tight and 
the time has come to move — just a few 
yards up the road to bigger premises. To 


Capital tradition: Opening doors to 
talent and creativity 
help with the move the Fringe, a 
registered charity, is appealing for dona- 
tions. “We have already raised £1 1,000,” 
Mhairi said, “but we are still looking for 
£109,000.” 

The Fringe hopes it can continue to 
help make things possible for a lot of 
people. There are the administration 
staff and the performers, their entourage 
of helping bands and promoters, street 
criers and the like. 

But what about the talented, oppor- 
tune entity selling their wares and 
blowing their horns on the fringes of the 
Fringe? 

From the hot seats of the Festival and 
Fringe offices there ripples outwards a 
healthy and inspiring wave. The artist 
within has a chance to come out and be 
recognized: to hang sketches on the 
Playfeir steps, play tribute to Beethoven 
or the Beatles, or to ply tempting tit-bits 
wrapped in wholemeal bread and 
cellophane. 

Anyone can play a part in the festival. 
Set up your own small business for the 
price of a street trader's ticket (from £6 a 
day). At weekends during the festival the 
atmospheric Grassmarket area trades 
cars for bustling, colourful market stalls. 
Grandmother's clothes, antiques, arts 
and crafts, all sold to the tune of the 
busker’s guitar. 

Ventures such as this offer opportu- 
nities to anyone with a bit of get-out- 
th ere-and-do-i l . . and, of course, the idea. 
For it is there that the ball begins to roll 
like the idea of the Fringe — something 
alternative, experimental, open to every- 
one. Something to breathe out and laugh 
to after a day's dose of culture at the 
“official” Festival 

Born 40 years ago, the idea of light and 
late night entertainment has now grown 
into the biggest arts festival in the world. 
How would Macbeth look on the 
ramparts of Edinburgh Castle? Or could 
there be a market for tartan jewellery.^or 
tofu and seaweed toasties~or~?

RESEARCH STUDY INTO 
FRANCHISING 

Nuffield College intends to elect to one or 
two research posts for a five-year inter-dis- 
ciplinary study of franchising to be funded 
by Coca-Cola. The aim is to examine the 
capacity of franchising to facilitate focal 
capital formation ana the international 
transfer of know-how and relevant skills, 
with some emphasis on the legal and eco- 
nomic issues of the franchise relationship. 

The posts envisaged are one senior part*

Welsh under pressure: Per ego of IJaneHi manages to get his pass away as Halsey and

Accurate Dudman restores 
faith in the kicker’s art 


By David Hands 

Rngby Correspondent 

Harlequins 18 

tianeffi ..15 

Since Marcus Rose joined 
Harlequins, first team opportu- 
nities bave been few for Ray 
Dudman. But Dudman, who 
works as a fine arts restorer and 
may be said to have done a good 
job at Twickenham on Sat- 
urday, replaced Rose six min- 
utes into the second half and 
promptly kicked four of the six 
penalties which beat Llanelli, 
the last of them a minuie before 
full-time. 

To the extent that they scored 
two goals and a penalty, Llanelli 
may be entitled to grumble, but 
Harlequins earned their win 
with some driving forward play 
in the second half during which 
their back row helped force the 
illegalities — frequently for off- 
side at ruck and maul — from 
which the penalties came: 

As an exercise in three-quar- 
ter play, however, on a splendid 
day it was largely sterile. Alan 
Davies. England’s B coach, 
came to watch Rose, Salmon 
and Skinner and saw the frill 
back depart with damaged shin 
muscles (not thought to be 
serious) and Salmon consis- 
tently omitted from any move 
called behind the scrum.

half, is running the tacks these

days but he hurt his neck in a 
heavy tackle. Recognising his 
injury. Woodhouse took charge 
and Harlequins were at their 
most effective during his shon- 
side forays with Hunterafier the 
young forwards had won 
secondary tall from Cooke, 
standing off the scrums. 

The best of the backs, though, 
was Nigel Davies in Llanelli's 
centre. He organized a tight 
midfield, frequently found the 
gaps and also proved the best of 
the kickers on a day when the 
tactical kicking was embarrass- 
ingly poor. 

Llanelli will have to regroup 
now that Pearce has left them 
and there were half a dozen 
others also absent. A Llanelli

side sporting only one Inter- 
nationa] (in this case Phil 
Davies) is a rare event and 
they ran badly short of pos- 
session after the first half 
hour, deriving satisfaction 
only in the scrums where 
Olver will wish to forget that 
he lost three balls against the 
head. 

The score was 6*6 at half 
time, Rose's two penalties — 
he rapped the post with a third 
from halfway and missed with 
a fourth after his leg injury — 
being erased by Grayelle's try 
and conversion. When Lfa- 

Bath hit 
Moseley 
for six 


nelli scored nine points im- 
mediately after the interval, a 
Welsh win looked the most 
likely outcome, but they 
continued to concede pen- 
alties in the ratio of 3: 1 and 
Dudman kept kicking goals.

• In the John Smith's Merit 
Table B games, Northampton 
will have derived great satisfac- 
tion from the 49-9 win over 
Richmond, Cubitt scoring four 
of their tries. Nigel Underwood 
also scored but it was the other 
Underwood. England’s Rory, 
who caught the eye in Leicester's 
outstanding 69-4 win over Lon- 
don Welsh. 

It has been an amazing four 
days for Leicester who scored 95 
points against Birmingham last 
Wednesday and 69 on Saturday. 
Underwood scored four tries 
and there were two each for 
Evans and Richards. In the 
circumstances, the remark of 
their coach, Graham Wi liars, 
that “the running has been very 
forthright and the support 
excellent” seems something of 
an understatement. -

There were Mediterranean 
blue skies above and the grass, a 
shade too long, perhaps, was 
invitingly lush. The spectators 
sported iheir colourful, short- 
slcevcd cotton shins and from 
the Welsh point of view, there 
was longing fora game to lift the 
early season away from the 

S loom of coun cases and talk of 
iny play. 

It was a nice enough game in 
the end. but no more than that. 

and thankfully, no bad 
behaviour. 

Each of the three tries was 
touched with a stilish hand, or 
in two cases, a timely boot. 
Bristol scored a goal, a try and a 
penalty to Swansea's try' and 
three penalties. Nothing very 
much separated them in the 
scrums, and if Swansea enjoyed 
the line-out possession, then 
Bristol countered b> winning 
the loose. 

The game began swiftly as 
Bevan kicked a penalty and the 
first try came in the 1 5th minute 
— a beautiful piece of judge- 
ment. Harding's high kick 
caught Bevan and Emyr con- 
fused. Pollcdri and Pomphrey 
crashed in and when the ball 
emerged, Tainton. seeing Dug- 
gan standing wide out from the 
Swansea defence, kicked flat for 
the wing to chase and wm the 

try. 

Swansea replied with forceful 
drives to Bristol's line. A Hop- 
kins gruhher, kicked through a 
flat Bristol defence, gave Emyr a 
try and a further penalty by 
Bevan gave Swansea the hall- 
lime lead. 

Bristol were always at their 
most dangerous awa> from the 
set pieces. A sustained period of 
pressure saw them drive to 
Swansea's line and from the 
ruck Harding, who as always 
had a fine game, threw a long 
screw pass to midfield which 
gave Duggan a run at Tilley for a 
lovely try. When this lead 
appeared that it just might be 
enough. Bevan took the op- 
portunity to kick his third 
penally.

Saracens savour 
September sun 


By Gordon Allan 


Japan 27 Moseley 0 

North and Midlands — 19 Bath — 36 


In near perfect conditions 
Japan showed their growing 
confidence to beat the North 
and Midlands in a scrappy but 
nonetheless exciting game. 

Matsuo kicked an early pen- 
alty and after 20 minutes, slick 
handling by Chida and Ikuta put 
Murai in fora try. This stung the 
North into action. Murray. 
Brian Edwards and Allingham 
all came dose, but Matsuo 
kicked bis second penalty and 
Marshall, the home stand-off 
retired with hamstring trouble 
and was replaced by Allison. 

After the break, the North and 
Midlands put Japan under fierce 
pressure. After six minutes. 
Brian Edwards ran strongly 
down the narrow side of the 
scrum for a try. Matsuo and 
McCartney then exchanged pen- 
alties before Nakano, the visit- 
ing prop forward, touched down 
for a fine try. 

North struck tack immedi- 
ately with a try from Allingham, 
and in the last ten minutes the 
match caught alight — Chida 
barging over from a line-out; 
Allison weaving bis way through 
and Murai scoring his second. 

The North and Midlands had 
in Rankin, Flockhan and Henry 
Edwards a tireless back row but 
their front five lacked technique 
and Japan enjoyed much more 
possession than they will have 
in any of their other tour 
fixtures. The Japanese are very 
vulnerable to straight running 
and give away too many pen- 
alties. particularly for off-ride. 
After the game Shiggy Konno 
said Japan would have to im- 
prove their tackling.

It was cricket weather at the 
Reddings on Saturday, and Bath 
dosed their “innings’* at 36, 
leaving the distinct impression 
that they could have passed the 
half century with ease if it had 
mattered. 

They beat Moseley by six 
con verted tries to nothing — six 
sixes if you like — in their John 
Smith's merit table A match, 
with Barnes scoring a try and 
kicking all the conversions. 

The Bath forwards went 
through their now familiar rou- 
tine of rolling over the oppo- 
sition in tight and loose, and 
Moseley had to do an awful lot 
of tackling to prevent matters 
getting completely out of band. 
Barr did as much of that tackling 
as anybody and also managed to 
be in the vicinity on the few 
occasions when Moseley 
achieved some momentum. 

Bath were solid and efficient, 
though hardly brilliant. The 
match was on a corresponding 
level, partly because of numer- 
ous stoppages for iqjury. 

In the second half Bath lost 
Hall with a pulled hamstring 
and Moseley lost Colwell with 
an injured shoulder. Amtzen 
moved from the centre to take 
Colwell's place at scrum half. 

There was a stoppage of 
another kind in the first half 
when some of the forwards went 
at one another. Referee Fred 
Howard had to remind the 
captains. Hill and Metcalfe, of 
their obligations. By then Bath 
were 18 points up through tries 
by Chikou from a maul. Hall 
from a scrum, and Guscotl from 
a midfield cul by Swift. Moseley 
were made to suffer for several 
missed touch kicks. 

Bath doubled their score in 
the second half with tries by 
Barnes. Swift - from a chip by 
Barnes — and Guscon for the 
second time from a run by Swift.

Saracens 13 

Bridgend — ...... — 4 

It might be provocative to 
suggest that English teams sa- 
vour meeting powerful sides 
from the Valleys at the height of 
an Indian summer rather than 
in the Stygian gloom of a Welsh 
winter, but on Saturday Sara- 
cens dearly blossomed in the 
hot sun. 

The Welsh had sent only the 
light cavalry to deal with vol- 
atile Saracens in Southgate and 
they paid the price. They were 
defeated by one goal, two tries 
and one penalty goal, to one uy. 
and they were left to ponder that 
Saracens have acquired the 
knack of beating them regularly 
on their own territory. 

Bridgend were certainly prag- 
matic in their approach. They 
gambled that their light brigade 
would win the day and were 
content to save their heavy 
artillery for sterner tattles this 
week, against Llanelli and the 
formidable Pontypool. 

The Welsh will have con- 
firmed the view that conceding 
overwhelming possession in the 
line-out to the opposition pro- 
duces an unwelcome burden. 
They discovered also that 
Howe, who had abandoned the 


north to seek sunnier climes in 
Southgate, revelled in the 
domination he and Partinson 
secured in the line-out. 

In wing-forward KJiaiiii they 
have a tiny gadlly of a player 
who makes up for his lack of 
inches wiih a speed and 
positioning which enables him 
to be in the right attacking spot 
at the right time. Saracens have 
also acquired a promising stand 
o(T. Rudling. He was not put off 
by his ill-judged clearance which 
was charged down and opened 
the way for Bridgend to level the 
scores at 4-4 with a try by 
Gareth Williams in (he 10th 
minute. 

Steadman. Saracens' cocky 
and capable scrum- half, scored 
both his side's tries. He also 
provided a quick service which 
helped give Saracens a vast 
territorial advantage in the sec- 
ond half and turned a 4-4 
interval score into a handsome 
victory.

Crack Thimdercliffe 


By Michael Stevenson 


Headingley possess a prop 
with the prophetic name of 
Albert Thundereliffe and his 
contribution to their 28-15 vic- 
tory over London Scottish was 
almost as crucial as that of 
Angus Moran, their accom- 
plished stand-ofT half, who was 
in tremendous form. 

Strong and deft in nick and 
maul. Thundereliffe performed 

his light duties with admirable 
solidity and managed to pick up 
and dear to touch, when a try 
seemed protable during Scot- 
tish's second half ralfv that 
carried them from a 22-3 inter- 
val deficit to 22-15, 

The game interspersed good 
moments with a pantomime of 
errors. Mitchell missed four 
penalties for Scottish, two of 
them virtual gifts, before Batten 
took over and kicked marvel- 
lously. their only points coming 
from his five penalties. 

Moran's dusjveness set up 


Headinglcy's first try scored 
from a set scrum on the line by 
Lumlcy and he contributed two 
drop goals (one with each fooil. 
two penalties and two conver- 
sions. Headingley 's other tries 
were scored by Corfield and 
Parsonage. 

Al Moss Lane. Andrew. 
Melville's possible England 
partner, played his first game for 

Wasps. Liverpool St Helens led 
9-0 at half time, through a 
penalty, try and conversion, all 
by Simms, but a try by Pellow 
and a pushover try. which 
Andrew somehow managed to 
touchdown himself, were both 
converted by Stringer to give 
Wasps an easy victory. 

Waterloo had a much easier 
passage in their Merit Table B 
22-7 win against Blackheath at 
Blundell sands, although until 
Heslop scored (wo splendid fries 
in (he second half it was all 
kicks. 


Law Report September 22 1986 


Using power of arrest 


Newman y Benesch 

Where it was alleged that 
there had been a serious and 
flagrant breach of an injunction, 
restraining a person from 
assaulting or interfering with his 
spouse or from entering the 
matrimonial home, to which a 
power of arrest had been at- 
tached under section 2( 1 ) of the 
Domestic Violence and Matri- 
monial Proceedings Act 1 976. it 
was not wrong in principle for 


the judge to make an ex parte 
order committing the contem- 
nor to prison. 

A belter course, however, 
would be for the court to inform 
the police that the injunction 
appeared to have been breached 
and lhat the alleged comemnor 
should be arrested under the 
1976 Act. 

The Court of Appeal (Sir John 
Donaldson. Master of the Rolls. 
Lord Justice Ralph Gibson and 
Lord Justice NichoIIs) so stated 


on September 19. allowing in 
tan an upeal by Mr Gordon 
“"Wch from an ex pane order 
of Cambridge County Court 
(Judge Garfitl). committing him 
to prison for 12 months for 
breach of a non-molestation 
injunction. The Coun of Appeal 
substituted a term of 28 days. 
^The MASTER OF THE 
ROLLS Said that using the 
power of arrest was a very 
efficient way of bringing an 
alleged comemnor before the 


court. It was more satisfactory 
to do that, so that the court 
couid hear the full facts on an 
inter partes hearing before 
imposing a sentence, than to 
impose the maximum appro- 
priate sentence on the basis of 
the complainant's evidence and 
then, possibly, to have to reduce 
it on the inter panes hearing. 

That approach was supported 
by what Lord Justice Ormrod 
had said in Ansah v Ansah 
((I977J Fam 138. 144).

BOXING 

Hard slog 
has little 
reward for 
McKenzie 

By SrikomarSen 
Boxing Coiuespoiideiit .. 

Colton McKenzie stood in 
the sunny grounds or Sheudisb 
House. Hemei Hempstead, out- 
side the great tent in which he 
had just had the last contest of 
his career and wondered what 
ten years of hard dog had 

brought. 

Not very much these days, 
considering other boms with 
less ulent are setting themselves 
up for retirement. All McKenzie 
had to show was pats on the 
back, two Lonsdale Belts, a 
house “with still a few grand to 
pay on it” and a dwindling 
current account at the bank. 

The former champion who 
boxed eight years for Mickey 
Duff and Mike Barren and two 
years for Frank Warren said 
after being stopped in his second 
attempt to regain the title he had 
first won eight years ago: ”1 am 
really sorry that in IS cham- 
pionship fights I've made so 
linie money. I am going see if 
John Morris at the Boxing 
Board and Frank Warren can 
give me a benefit as they do in 
cricket" Warren said yesterday: 
“I shall get in touch with the 
board and work out something 
for him." 

McKenzie, aged 31. was 
clearly trying to regain the 
vacant British light welterweight i 
title not so much for the gjory as < 
for squeezing a little money out i 
the game. But he found his legs 
were not up to rescuing him 
from trouble against Tony 
McKenzie, aged 23, from 
Leicester. 

While Clinton opened well, he 
was stunned in the third by a 
right which struck his glove 
guarding his face and 
seemedanchored to the Boor. As 
his defences went to pieces Tony 
McKenzie laid into him with 
more rights finally flooring him 
for the first time in his career . 
with a left hook. 

Ginion said afterwards: "My 
legs just could not move. They 
are gone. I cannot go on any 
more. I have mired." It was not 
a happy commentary on a sport 
which generates millions of 
pounds. 

If McKenzie's training days 
arc over, Errol Christie’s ate just 
Starting in earnest. After strug- 


RACING: DUAL DERBY WINNER JOINS SHARDARI IN STOITTFS ASSAULT ON LONGCHAMP’S BIG PRIZE 


Shahrastani eyes Arc 
after sparkling gallop 


Prix de 1'Arc de Triomphe 
news crowded everything else 
from the racing stage over the 
weekend. 

Even before the sensational 
announcement that Pat Eddery 
is to replace Greviflc Starkey on 
I Dancing Brave in Europe's most 
1 demanding Flat race was made 
public yesterday, an enormous 
crowd at Newbury on Saturday 
had watched Shahrastani earn 
the right to join Shardari, his 
siabie companion, in a powerful 
dual assault for Michael Stoute 
at Lougchamp on Sunday week. 

Tony Kimberley took the 
mount on the Aga Khan's 
English and Irish Derby winner. 
Cult Lines was on board 
Di hi Stan and Pat Conian made 
the early running on an anony- 
mous grey stable mate. 

An dement of fen* was 
introduced when Barry Hffls's 
pair. Sure Blade and Oriental 
Soldier, joined the work at the 
mile start, but luckily they 
sorted themselves out rounding 
the final bend and both trials- 
look place separately at the wide 

home stretch of the Berkshire 
track. 

In the last furlong Shahrastani 
q nicked impressively to go three 
or four lengths dear ofThhistan. 
“That was highly satisfactory," 
said Stoute. "The crowd made a 
terrific .racing atmosphere and 
Shahrastani couldn't have done 
it better. Don't forget that 
Dihistan is very reliable." 

Tire Aga Khan, his flight from 
Sardinia having been delayed by 
ground control problems at 
Rome airport, arrived at 
Newbury too late to watch the 
gallop, but said afterwards: 


By MBchael Seely 

"Walter Swinbum, Michael's 
contract rider, will have the pick 
between the peur. And if Darara. 
my Prix Venneillft winner, does 
not run at Longchamp, Yves- 
Saint Martin wflf ride the other. 
Alain Royer-Dupre wants to 
delay the dedsioa as long as 
posable, as fillies can go on so 
quickly at this time of the year.” 

Barry Hills was also delighted 
with Sine Blade’s gallop and 
confirmed that Sheikh 
Mohammed's impressive win- 
ner of Ascot's St James’s Palace 
Slakes will be ridden by Brent 
Thomson next Saturday against 
Eddery and Pennine Walk m the 
Queen Elizabeth U Stakes en 
route to the Dubai Champion 

Stakes at Newmarket. 

As usual Newbury has staged 

a magnificent afternoon's racing 
made even more enjoyable by 
the heat of the Indian summer. 
And an even more warming 
sight was that of Forest Flower, 
her ears flicking backwards and 
forwards in the last furiong, 
bravely repelling the strong late 
attack of Shady Heights to rave 
lan Balding's amazing little filly 
her thiidvictjory from four starts 
in the Rofceby MflJ Reef Stakes. 

“Tony Ives gave her a marvel- 
lous. nde," said the dated 
Kingsdens handler, “and as 
Charlie Nelson thinks that For- 
est Flower and Minstrella ought 
to avoid each other. I'm inclined 
to agree. So Forest Flower will 
go for cither the Chevetey Park 
Stakes at Newmarket on tbe 
Thursday or tbe Middle Park 
Stakes on the Saturday." 

Raiding , who had earlier initi- 
ated a double by winning the 
Arlington Stakes with Land Of 


ivory, then had the mortifica- 
tion of watching his gallant 
scvcifryear-old. Mailman, fa il by 
three-quarters ofa length to give 
Pbwtr Bender 61b in the Cour- 
age Stakes. Power Bender would 
hive won for mote easily if 
Richard Quinn had not been 
forced to go to the front for too 
soon in a slowly run race and 
Saturday's 5-2 favourite is now 
only a 10-1 chance for tbe 
Cambridgeshire. 

The big disappointment of the 
afternoon was the running of 
Primary, who feded out early in 
the straight in tire Coral Autumn 
Cup tofoush unplaced behind 
Broken Wave, Hauwmal and 
Afraaaxad. 

Broken Wave's victory pro- 
vided a welcome return to form 
for Henry Candy, “Fve had 
every known land of virus and 
several other types as well." be 
commented. “If Broken Wave 
remains in good form, she could 
go for the Sun Chariot Stakes." 

We are now looking f or w ar d 
to tbe delights of Ascot's three- 
day .September meeting. On 
Saturday the highlights win be 
the Queen Elizabeth H Stakes 
and tire one mOe Royal Lodge 
stakes for two-year-olds. 
Eddery, who rode Don’t Forger 
Me to victory at Doncaster for 
Richard Hannon, is earn- to 
partner the Champagne Stakes 
winner in tbe race that has been 
won in the past by such stars as 
Shirley Heights and Efe-Mana- 
Mou. But the Wiltshire trainer 
said: “I'm going to have a look 
at the four-day acceptors al- 
though I may wail for the 
Dewhuret and have a crack at a 
group one."

Lake Forest, Illinois (AP) — 
Kevin Morris and Wheeler 
Stewart led the United Stales to 
victory over a British side in the 
13th International PGA Cup 
marking the Americans’ first 
triumph in the series since 1982. 

The 16-9 final score came on 
the strength of tbe United 
States' 5 'a to 3b win on the 
third and final day of com- 
petition against Great Britain 
and Ireland. 

Morris ended his match with 
Pip Elson 2-up on the 17th green 
at Knollwood Country Cub by 
chipping to within four inches of 
the cup That salvaged an 
approach shot Morris belted 
over tbe green that left him SO 
feet away. 

Stewart holed an 8ft pun fora 
birdie at the same hole for a 2 
and 1 triumph over Martin 
Gray, of Scotland. 

Both men needed victories to 
ofisei the outstanding perfor- 
mance of Denis Durnian, of

SQUASH RACKETS 

White drives 
a bargain 
handicap 

By Colin McQuillan 

David While, a 31 -year-old 
optical technician from Gates- 
head, Tyne and Wear, yesterday 
took just 17 minutes to win the 
final of the Austin Rover Gub 
Players* Championship at Bran- 
don Hall Coventry. He beat 
Chris Blackman from Waltham 
Cross. Surrey. J5-2. 15-8, off a 
generous handicap of plus 7. 
giving him a 17-point start in 
each game against Blackman, 
who was playing off minus 10. 

The Austin Rover event is 
designed to introduce to squash 
something approaching the 
handicap system in golfLSome 

500 clubs sent their handicap 
champions into the com- 
petition. “I was very lucky with 
the handicap here. " admitted 
White yesterday. “I played off 
plus 4 in my club tournament 
and I was probably worth only 
scratch against Chris." 

White has played club squash 
for the past 14 yean, but never 
won even a major club trophy. 
His prize of an MG Metro worth 
more than £6.000 is nearly 
double the value of last Aprirs 
British Open Championship.

mneb easier opparitfea than 
when last of foorto Verdant B«y 
at Yanwnth last Tuesday. He 
had previoudy .won a race 
similar to today’s at Chepstow 
and is again favourably treated 
by the conditions this afternoon. 

For the day’s best bet, theagh, 
I took to Bate where Lester 
Piggott sboald saddle- yet an- 
other two-year-eld wmaer hi 
BLAZING HIGH. Thin Anatra- 
ihue-bred colt has shown ex- 
cellent speed to reach the frame 
in hk brat two races at Lingfield 
and Folkestone and wHI be hard 
to catch from tbe Non X drew hi 
the Tormartod Maiden Stakes. 

The form of tee Folkestone 
race, where Blazing High fin- 
ished a dose forth to Days IAe 
These, looks well above-average 
for the Kent coax as these 
immcrfiately behind him in- 
cluded -VivaWi, , previo as ty tee 
Conqueror of Sati - day’i impeea- 
sive Newbasy scoter. Print. 

Abo jast behind nf bu at 
Folkestone came -Veryon Bay, 
who gave Michael DkJnnsan Ms 
test winaer at Tin g fieM on 
Tnesday. With today's oppo- 
sition looking distinctly mod- 
erate, Hnbg High win have 
lew better chance to get off the 
mark. 

My other principal fancy at 
tbe S oni c net track b SOME- 
ONE ELSE, who chased home 
Toinca Lake at Doncaster £2 
days ago and meets noteiag of 
that calibre hi tee Stephen Lade

With South amp ton's de-

pect down the middle in the 
face of increasing pressure, it 
finally took a midfield

goalkeeper to stop but also 
your substitute with a broken 
leg, then defeat is particularly 
hard to con-template. 

So it was with Kenny 
on Saturday. His 
rose when one re- . 
porter commented harmlessly 
enough afterwards: “Shame 
about Mike Hooper, he’s 
played so wefl." In defence of 
the goalkeeper, who has taken 
oyer from. Grobbelaar, 

Dalglish snapped bade “What 
do you mean, shame? Are you 
blaming him?” 

Well, aren’t you, Kenny?” 



responded Liverpool’s player- 
manager, his face contorting 
itself this way and that in his 
personal post-match anguish. 

What probably rankled 
Dalglish more than any thing 
was that just 10 minutes 
before Hooper had allowed 
Cockerifl’s 67th-minute volley ' 
to slip under his diving body 
for Southampton’s winner, lie 
himself had missed the kind of 
chance he would nor mall y 
have gobbled np. 

When Rush, with a s imilar 
opportunity, proceeded to 
have his effort blocked by 
Shilton, it was dear Liverpool 
could rely on neither of their 
normally so-lethal forwards 
for goals. 


At that stage; few would 
have disagreed with Chris 
Nichofl, the Southampton 
manager’s, assertion that 
“having fallen behind and 
then drawn level, you just had 
to fancy Liverpool then with 

their strength and football.” 
Not so. Liverpool were to be 
undermined by the mistake of 
Hooper who, having earlier, 
with gymnastic brilliance, 
kept out piledrivers from Wal- 
lace and Case, was then to 
deny Cockeril] a second goal 
with bis best save yet In spite 
of his error, Grobbelaar could' 
find it bard to get back. 

Unfortunately, the match, a 
hard one at the best — or worst 
— of times, was to end as it 
began, with an injury. An hour 
after Wallace had retired with 
a possible cracked tibia, Mc- 
Donald. who had just come on 
for NicoL was stretchered off 
with two bones broken in a leg 
after an accidental collision. 
He is uplikeiy to play again 
this season. 

With Wark and Johnston 
around for a midfield slot, 
Liverpool may have no need 
to buy. Neither, it would 
seem, have Southampton.

Villa in need of luck 


By Vince Wright 


Aston Villa » 
Norwich City 


Aston Vina need more than a 
new manager to revive their 
fortunes. They could also do 
with a change of hick — some- 
thing which has been conspicu- 
ous by its absence on and off the 
field this season. . 

Despite being without five 
regular first-team players. Villa 
had the better of some untidy 
exchanges during the opening 25 
minutes on Saturday. Then a 
wretched mistake by the recalled 
Hodge gave Norwich a gift of a 
goal and so changed the 
compkadon of the match. This 
defeat — their seventh in eight 
— sent them to the 
Atom of the first division. 

Norwich's spectacular success 
at Villa Park was based on 
sound teamwork. The goal- 
keeper, Ben stead, was well pro- 
tected by his defenders, who 


spotted danger qi 
hams and the 


uicldy. 

under-! 


Wa- 
r-rated 

Phelan used the ball accurately 
and sensibly in midfield. Fur- 
ther forward, the inteftigem runs 
of Drinkdl and Biggins kept 
Evans and EDiott at full stretch. 

The Villa crowd booed Hodge 
whenever he touched the ball. 
His request for a transfer during 
this critical period for the dub 


has not gone down well with the 
supporters, but this kind of 
treatment only helps Villa's 
opponents. 

On Saturday, it may have 
even cost Villa a goal In the 
thirtieth minute. Hodge, who 
was probably shaken by the 
hostility, sold his goalkeeper, 
Poole, yards short with a back- 
pass and Phelan, always alert for 
the unexpected chance, calmly 
sidefooted the.ball home. 

Norwich’s second goal -ar- 
rived just before the interval. 
Biggins finishing after a move 
involving Barham, Gordon and 
Culvcrhouse. Villa’s defence 
was breached again after 54 
minutes by Gordon and eight 
minutes later the Norwich cap- 
tain, Bruce, scored after Villa 
had foiled to dear a corner. 

By this time Villa had lost 
their composure as well as their 
zest. A spiteful foul fay Elliott on 
Biggins earned him a booking 
and Hunt was also booked for 
an equally harsh challenge on 
Barham which led to the mid- 
field player being carried off. 
Stainnxf s late tap-in goal was 
hardly consolation.

Football has lost one of its 
most respected idealists with the 
death over die weekend of Sir 
Norman Chester, aged 78, Ox- 
ford don, and author of two of 
the most «— whfag investiga- 
tions into the state and fame of 
the game in this country. 

His Initial prognosis in 1968, 
the then controversial 135-page 
Chester Report, called lor rad- 
ical rfiangea, tnrinding a redoc- 
tion In the nnmber of dobs in the 
first- division and the region- 
alization of the lower dmsioos. 

It was largely ignored at foe 
time, but in years to come earned 
his wide recognition for his 
risnoaiy candasfous. 

His second report was com- 
missioned by the Football 
League in 1982, when he was 74, 

and this time to a huge extent, 
was acted upon. 

Jack Damtett, the farmer 
Football League president, who 
worked dosefy with him on the 
later five-man commission,

tribute to Sir Norman last night 
as “a man with a perceptive mid 
wide-ranging mind, who despite 
holding firm thoughts, was often 
prepared to change them after 
listening to other viewpoints. 

“He was an excellent admin- 
istrator and a very good friend to 
all those who knew him. I first 
met him about 20 years ago 
when be was appointed chair- 
man of die Chester Committee 
on Football set up by Dennis 
Howell, the then Minister of 
Sport. 

“Subsequently, when the 
Pools Promoters Association 
formed the Football Ground 
Improvement Trust, Norman 
became its first chairman before 
later taking over as vice-chair- 
man of the Football Trust, which 
assisted professional and ama- 
teur football at non-league 
level.” 

When the Football League set 
np its own inquiry into the state 
of the game in 1983, Duimett 
appointed . Sir Norman as chair- 
man of the commission. 

“A few months later he pro- 
duced a report of which about 


half its recommendations were 
accepted by member dabs. Most 
of the others have also been 
implemented following the res- 
tructuring of the league last 
April,” said Dunnett, who is the 
Notts Comity chair man. 

At the time of the second 
Chester Report, the author said: 
“Although 1 have kept in contact 
with football, moch of my in- 
terest in recent years has bran in 
the grass roots game. I believe 
that everyone who professes to 
follow football should spend at 
least one Sunday morning on 
Hackney Marshes and one Sat- 
urday afternoon watching Har- 
tlepool or Brecon.” 

Sir Norman was working on 
Trust business until his ad- 
mission to hospital last week 
and Richard -Faulkner, the 
Trust's secretary said: “We have 
lost one of foothalTs greatest 
and wisest figures. He had a 
rare combination of talents, 
strength of pnrpose and in- 
dependence of mind and each of 
his reports was a model of clarity 
and common sense.”

to get his man. 

There was speariation in 
Manchester yesterday that 
McNeill might be prepared to 

take matters into his own bands . . 

by resigning his City post He bottom as Paul Gascoigne sgoal 
- *!***““« .thro ‘^atnrdav's & vc ^ tiieir first win ofthe 
« Aat teSht season against Wimbledon and 


Luton at Upton Fferk. Martin 
and Brian Stein, Luton forward, 
were dismissed after exchan g in g 
blows in an 80th min ute 
incident. 

“I could not have picked a 
worse time with Mark Wright 
‘stting back to fitness and 
Obby Robson watching” 
admitted Martin, who will have 
served his automatic two-match 
ban by the time England play 
Northern Ireland in the Euro- 
pean Championship at Wem- 
bley next month and will, 
therefore, be available for 
selection. 

Newcastle climbed off the 


Saturday night to refuse Doqg 
Ellis, the Vm* chairman, per- 
mission to talk to their manager, 
who still has three years of Ids 

contract to run. 

Since sacking Graham Tarner 
test week, EDis has insisted that 
he would adhere to the code of 
conduct between the League 


admitted 
board 

want to talk to Vflte and added 
yesterday: “It was something I 
anticipated. The chairman has 
explained the position and 1 wOO 
go away and think it over.” 

Were McNeil] to walk oat, it 
would be in the certain knowl- 
edge that be could drive straight 
down the M6 into the Villa jab. 


Oxford had their striker Jeremy 
Charles sent off at Arsenal but 
still held out for a goalless draw. 

Oldham, second division 
leaders, who bad not previously 
conceded a goal all season, went 
down 5-4 m an amazing match 
at Huddersfield, who were re- 
duced to ten men after having 
Simon Webster sent off 


This was more like the Cov- 
entry we knew — a second 
division side in the making. 

Never in their years of dicing 
with relegation can Coventry 
have looked so languid, yet on 
Saturday they bad a 
Wimbtedonian incentive: a 
chance to lead the league for the 
first time in their history. 

But for Nottingham Forest 
sweeping past Chelsea and 
Chariton showing commend- 
able adventure for a team who 
had lost three matches in succes- 
sion. Coventry would have been 
up there on Saturday night with 
all beneath them. 

Had Jimmy HiU, now a 
Charlton director, still been 
Coventry's manager, be would 
no doubt have been more 
probing in bis post-match analy- 
sis than was George Curtis, the 
managing director. While John 
Sillett controls team affairs, 
Curtis conducts the Press 
conferences. 

“That’s the worst perfor- 
mance since John and 1 have 
taken over - even if you count 
the practice matches,” Curtis 
said. 


Cyrille Regis, the only Cov- 
entry player other than Greg 
Downs to emerge with a pass 
mark for effort, was equally 
stinging. “Leave it out,” he said 
to an inquirer who wanted to 
know whether he thought Cov- 
entry could mount a champion- 
ship challenge. 

Coventry’s unbeaten six- 
match run was saved by a goal 
which Lennie Lawrence, the 
Charlton manager, described as 
"pure force". With two minutes 
remaining. Pickering crossed 
only to discover he had no 
support. Bui Johns let the ball 
slip through his fingers and 
Aiztewuod. running in, knocked 
it into his own net. 

Chariton gave home debuts to 
their two new midfield signings, 
Peake and Walsh, the latter 
impressing. But their weakest 
area is among the forwards, who 
have scored only two goals in 
seven matches. A defender, 
Shirtliff. was their marksman on 
Saturday and Lawrence is look- 
ing to strengthen his attack.

Watford, once 

exponents of the long game, are 
pulling up short. Before their 
critics start celebrating Graham 
. Taylor’s return to more tra- 
ditional lines one should add 
that it is only temporary, until 
he finds himself another 
beanpole like Jenkins or Reilly. 

For the second time in two 
weeks at Vicarage Road the 
students were showing the 
professor how it should be done 

and left Taylor lamenting: “The 
old Watford would have beaten 
Wednesday and Wimbledon. 

We can no longer do the son of 
things that people say we can do. 
1 only wish we could. 

Certainly a lot of the fun has 
gone out oiwa [ford’s game. The 
arrival of McClelland and 
Coton in defence and the short- 
comings of attack mean lhat the 
welter of goals which often 
compensated for the heavy- 
weight approach is no more. 
Now Taylor must find a way of 
rediscovering the old attacking 
qualities and adding them to the 
new defensive ones. 

Sheffield Wednesday were not 
a very pretty sight either, woe- 
fully in neecf of some subtlety in 
front of goal, which perhaps the 
expensive teenager, Hirst, from 
Barnsley, will give them when 
he is given the chance. It was not 
so much the balL as the laboured 
joke has it. that needed an 
aspirin at half time, as the 
spectators. 

Taylor admitted that it was 
the third “less than pleasurable 
game” that his side had been 
involved in this season and he 
included, honest as ever, the 
undeserved mid-week victory 
against Manchester Uniied. 

Snodin. the Wednesday full- 
back. needed something stron- 
ger than an aspirin after 
Richardson headed Sn odin’s 
bead instead ofthe ball. He was 
badly concussed and as a 
precaution spent the night at 
Watford hospital. 

Why be was not substituted 
after a quarter of an hour when 
the incident occurred instead of 
at half-time is a question better 
answered by Lester Shapter. the 
referee, than the Wednesday 
coaching staff, Snodin, like the 
fighter he is. bounced straight 
back up again instead of taking a 
full count and consequently Mr 
Shapter refused Madden's plea 
for the trainer to come on. “His 
injury upset our balance,” How- 
ard Wilkinson, the Wednesday 
manager, said. 

But there was compensation 
for Wilkinson in winning for a 
change at the school where, you 
might say. he was indoctrinated. 
He owed his first points in 10 
years at Vicarage Road to 
Hodge, his goalkeeper and part 
time centre-back, who dribbles 
the ball forward in much the 
same way as Beasant does for 
Wimbledon but not quite so 
comfortably. 

It was more his orthodox 
qualities which threw Watford. 

Colon was just as obstinate at 
the other end until Terry, bis 
own centre-back, fooled him in 
the 65ih minute from close 
range when trying to steer a 
Chamberlain cross to safety. As 
a winning goal the game de- 
served none better.

When Wolverhampton Wan- 
derers played SSarafey ta the 
1959-60 season a pom sepa- 
rated the clubs at the top of the 
first division. When the dabs 
met on Saturday, there were StSk 
very few points separating than. 
But they are now both to the 
fourth division. 

They are dubs with names 
that recall calMcngth shorn* 
patent leather hairdos and out- 
moded modesties. Old gold and 
black played claret and btoc 
grand old dubs that marched to 
the top of the hill now ma rched 
down again. Both are founder- 
members of the Football League, 
both have won the FA Cop and 
the league. Now the empty acres 
yawn mockingly’. 

Dominating MoUnenx, the 
Wolves ground, is a giant 
cantilevered stand, a nmnamcof 
to the 1970s. to football's great 
age of selF-ddusSou. It is an 
emblem of felly. Football be- 
lieved that it would be forever, 
full of might and power, that the 
people and the money would 
never slop pouring to. and that 
£1.175.000 was a sensible price 
to pay for a footballer, as Wolves 
rated Andy Gray in 1979. Once 
61,315 people watched Wolves 
play Liverpool. On Saturday the 
remaining dregs of traditional 
support for the team brought to 
5.786 souls. On tbe whole it was 
surprising there were so many. 

They were given the football 
of the 1980s all right: long 
clearances, back passes, offside 
decisions, terrific effort, well- 
organized defence, attacks lack- 
ing all imagination, and nasty 
boys shouting rude words, ft 
wasn't a bad match. I suppose, 
as these things go. 

But it was still depressing. 
Wolverhampton, like so many 
medium-sized provincial cities, 
is a depressing place. It seems to 
have given up being a town, at 
least in the middle, and set itself 
up as a shrine to the eternal 
combustion engine. The place 
seems swathed in ring roads 
designed to co-ordinate taste- 
fully with tiie cantilevered stand. 

So many provincial towns 
seem to have been subjected to 
violent centrifugal force, every- 
thing has whizzed from Che 
middle to the rim, poshing the 
outer edges ever further back. 
There are times when I believe 
that all England will become a 
suburb of itself, as the towns 
grow hollow at the heart and the 
suburbs grow proud and fat and 
push ever further into the Green 
Belt. 

But football seems bora anew 
In the suburbs and overspill 
towns In the 1980s: Wimbledon, 
Watford, Oxford. Luton make 
waves while teams and places 
like Burnley and Wolver- 
hampton sink into the fourth 
division. 

Nothing is forever, especially 
not in sport- There must have 
been times, as when Wolves won 
the first di vision championship 
three times in the 1950s, that 
football without a successful 
Wolves seemed wholly impos- 
sible. Now a successful Wolves 
belongs to a figment of imagina- 
tion. Mofinenx stands as a great 
tribute to leaping ambition and 
grandiose follies of the past. 
"My name is Ozymandias, king 
of kings. Look on my works, ye 
Mighty and despair.” 

Wolves lost at home, too, to a 
rather good goal by Grewcock. 
An old-fashioned wing, as H 
happens. Calf-length shorn 
would have suited him. 


Strength is top heavy 


Convincing victories by four 
of the five dubs considered 
genuine contenders suggests 
that the race for the Scottish 
championship could be the 
most open in the history of the 
premier division (Hugh Taylor 
writes.) 

Dundee United beat Hamilton 
Academicals 5-1. despite tiie 
absence of several regulars 
through injury. United’s victory 
emphasised the gulf in dass 
between the the lop and bottom 
us goals came easily to Hegarty 
(2). Ferguson (2) and Swrrock. 

There were emphatic wins, 
too. for Celtic and Heart of 
Midlothian. To the delight of 
the Celtic supporters. McStay 


emerged from a period of 
frustration to give his most 
accomplished display of the 
season. 

Hibernians loss of form re- 
mains a mystery. Hearts beat 
Motherwell 4-0 and played in 
pleasing style, but it required 
Robertson's arrival as substitute 
to inject zest and bring the goals 
fine outfield play deserved. 

Another international who 
found form was Bert, whose 
mastery of the midfield helped 
Aberdeen beat Clydebank 3-1 at 
Kilbowie Park, but Rangers, 
unbeaten in eight matches, pre- 
sented Dundee, their first win in 
six games.

THE TIMES MONDAY SEPTEMBER 22 1986 


TENNIS 


Leconte outwits 
Mecir the 
magician to lift 
the title 

From Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent, Hautboy 


Henri Leconte raised his 
prize money for the year to- 
roughly £204,000 by beating 
Miloslav Mecir 6-2, 5-7, 6-4, 
6-2 in the singles final of the 
German championships on a 
blustery afternoon yesterday. 
Leconte reached the French 
and Wimbledon semi-finals. 

Mecir, runner-up for the 
United States title, has won 
about £189,000 in 1986. 

These two are among the 
five leading players and are 
more interesting to watch than 
the other three. The final, 
though, was tike one of those 
paintings in which the detail is 
more stimulating than the 
picture as a whole. There were 
a host of dazzling rallies, but 
only a moderate ration of 
thrilling games. 

Both men referred after- 
wards to the effect of the fickle 
breezes. “The wind was strong 
and kept changing direction,** 
Mecir said, "so it was difficult 
to prepare for shots and 
control them.” Leconte, who 
hits harder and tikes to have 
fun at the net, generously 
suggested that the wind had 
helped him: “Most of the time 
Mecir stayed back — and 
today it was difficult to hit 
passing shots." 

Leconte read Mccir’s in- 
tentions better than most 
players do and shared the 
Slovak's indulgence (Mecir is 
a Slovak rather than a Czech) 
in tiie unexpected. Mecir was 
the more subtle in his at- 
tempted trickery, Leconte the 
more forthright. Both used the 
angles wefl. 

Meriris tuning was un- 
certain. He was like a mar 
gjcian having a bad day 
because somebody had tam- 
pered with the props. Other 
features were Leconte's, top- 
spun backhands — which 
would have been less evident 
had Mecir hit consistently 
deep — and the superiority of 
Leconte's serving. If the 
match had a crux, it came in 
the third set when Mecir had 
two fruitless break points for a 
3-1 lead and then played a 


loose game to lose his own 
serviceand go 2-3 down. 

The tennis appealed to (he 
mind rather than the heart 
One was charmed and im- 
pressed rather than excited. 
The rallies, punctuated by 
Mecir's errors, contained so 
many teasing variations of 
length and angle and pace, so 
much bluff and double-bluffi 
that the players sometimes 
took turns to spin around, 
almost bewildered but always 
agile, after having guessed 
wrong. 

The doubles final was 
predictably disappointing for 
. the public. Boris Becker and 
'’Eric Jden, a German team in 
harness for the first time, had 
done well to win four matches 
at the cost of only one set But 
yesterday they were beaten 6- 
4, 6-1. by Sergio Casal and 
Emilio Sanchez, of Spain, one 
of the world’s tight leading 
teams. 

Even so, it was gratifying to 
have Becker on court for the 
last match of his native 
championships. It was equally 
gratifying that no player in- 
curred a fine at any stage of the 
tournament. The grand mix 
council may have mixed feel- 
ings about that, because the 
income from fines helps to 
finance training schools for 
court officials. 

Finally, the attendance for 
the week was a gratifying 
95,000, a record for the 
championships. Possibly the 
only place in Hamburg that 
was more crowded (on a 
smaller scale) was that famous 
traditional jazz rendezvous, 
the Cotton Cub, where a 
blissful looking tuba player 
bore a striking resemblance to 
Mecir. 

Hamburg, incidentally, is ■ 
the only city in the world 
where I have seen two ladies 
playing foe banjo for a living 
in different dubs on the same 
evening. The tennis circuit 
can be wonderfully educa- 
tional if one looks in the 
wrong places.

FOR TH E RECORD 


A return 
flight to the 
cuckoo’s 
nest 

From Richard Evans 
Los Angeles 

When John McEnroe got back 
to the locker room after his 
semi-final match against Brad 
Gilbert here at the UCLA tennis 
centre. Jack Nicholson was wan- 
ing for him. There was another 
one for the cuckoo’s nesL 

In a match that ranged from 
the sublime to the ridiculous 
and back again, McEnroe 
reached the final of a Nabisco. 
Grand Prix event for the first 
time m 10 months when he 
. defeated Gilbert 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in 
the Volvo tournament. 
McEnroe will now meet top seed 

Stefan Edberg who dismissed 
his fellow Swede, Peter 
Lundgren, in straight sets. 

In. between producing some of 
- the best tennis he has played . 
since winning the Stockholm ; 
Open last November. McEnroe 
offered a capacity 7,800 crowd 
glimpses of the uncontrollable 
manic side of his nature. I 

McEnroe allowed his I 
concentration to snap at one-all 
in the third set Spotting a 
woman in a court-side box who 
bad been berating him during 
earlier matches, McEnroe 
turned on her angrily and then 
called out "Stand op so every- 
one can see what kind of a fool 
you . are "Miring of yourself" A 
few people in the crowd let it be 
known they thought the fool was 
on court. 

McEnroe soon slipped bade 
into the magical rhythm be had 
displayed in the opening set and 
broke ■ Gilbert's serve with "a 
brilliant reflex voDey and a 
superbly angled backhand 
winner. 

Any apologies for McEnroe’s 
lapse in behaviour were re- 
served for his wife. Tatum had 
dipped' -into the locker room 
with Nicholson and- some 
friends and was greeted with a 
kiss. “Pm sorry," McEnroe said, 
"tat I didn't say anything too 
bad, did IT 

' Nicholson, an inveterate 
sports fan, produced one of 
those famous leers that brought 
out the straitiackets in One flew 
Over the Cuckoo's NesL Then, as 
McEnroe and Peter Fleming 
prepared for a late night doubles 
match, the actor herded Mrs 
McEnroe and friends off to 
dinner. One way or another, it 
had been a very Hollywood kind 
of evening.

The greatest show on earth: The >

The dawn of a hew era for Asia 


From David MlUer 
Seoul . 

Let do we say that- sport 
fosters a ni mos i ty rather than 
fraternity. Iran and Iraq 
marched together into Seoul's 
new Olympic Stadinm on Sat- 
urday, aregnburfy separated 
alphabetically for diplomatic 
gesture only by Jordan. The 
significance is that they both 
me there. Iran hid been absent 
from the Olympic Games in 
1984. 

Even more politically relevant 
is that the Chinese People’s 
Republic, with their squad of 
391 competitors outnumbered 
only by Japan and Soirfri Korea, 
have given a massive socialist 
vote of confidence and approval 
to one iff the world’s most 
sncceasfdl and confident though 

controversial capitalist states. 

We cannot precisely define 
those moments on which the 
soda! history of the world tarns, 
but sb Us way the 10th Asian 
Games cohU coihe to be seen in 
a small way as one of them. 

Not only did Sonth Korea, laid 
bare bf savage civil war 30 years 
ago, stage the most emotional 
and cMOurfolly magnificent 

opening ceremony hi the history 
of sport, but the 16-day event of

Not much 
to cheer 
at Bedford 

By Nkfiolas Keith 


Bedford .... 


XV ««« 


The weekend -sunshine did 
not throw modi warmth on 
Bedford’s centenary. ~ On Sat- 
urday, they wentdown narrowly 
in a dour, game at Nottingham 
and yesterday, they found their 
Welsh guests too deft with feet 
and hands. 

However, there are signs of a 
Bedford revivaL Orwin, now a 
local publican, has stiffened the 
pack but Bedford still need a 
dose of dynamism among the 
backs, who were vulnerable in 
defence and. besitant in attack 
apart from Canning, a quick- 
silver centre who scored the 
consolation Bedford try, con- 
vened by Key. 

The scratch side took ten 
minutes to find their bearings 
before taking control with the 
Newbridge fly half Turner, a 
positive and influential pres- 
ence. He convened a fine fry at 
the posts by Thomas and then. 


flowing move, Harris 
converting. - 

. A scrappy second-half also 
brought a brief fluny offisticufis 
between Howe and Brown. Fred 
Howard, the international ref- 
eree, coofed tempers by award- 
ing a penalty and a further ten 
metres against Bedford, and 
then gave a penalty try against 
Turnbull for a deliberate knock- 
on when faced with a Welsh 
overlap. Turner converted this , 
and a try by Edmunds but be 
foiled to improve a. second try 
by Thomas.

• THE STORY OF ENGUSH 
(BBC2. 8.05pm) starts by 
unrolling a plethora of 
statistics to support the 
contention that English Is the 
most tofluential language In foe 
worid. Did you know It is used 

for W per oent of computer data 
and 75 per cent of telegrams 
and telexes and by almost every 
air traffic controller? To 
demonstrate the variety of the 
tongue, the programme 
offers a quick flip through BBC 
English arid American EncUsti 
and the language of feminism 
The Canadian accent of the 
presenter, Robert McNea, is a 
useful reminder of the way 
foe language was spread by 
colonialism. The Story of 
English stretches over nine 
.weeks, and visits locations as 
diverse as the Cockney East End 
and the American Wild West 
It promises to be an entertaining

• FIGURES IN A BYGONE 
LANDSCAPE (Radio 4, 8.43am) 
is a 10-part serialisation of 
Don Haworth's just published 
memoir of his Lancashire 
childhood to the 1920s. It is a 
precise, unforced evocation 
of pie shops and cobbled streets 
and the joy of waking up on 
Christmas morning to a bolster 
full of presents. But with 
respect to the reader, Stephen 
Thome, it seems perverse to 
tell the story In a Home Counties

Mansell’s victory 


could prove 
the turning point 


If Nigel Mansell is to be- 
come the 1986 world cham- 
pion he should look back to 
his performance in yesterday's 
Portugese Grand Pnx as prob- 
ably the most decisive effort of 
his Formula One season. 
Mansell, after outsprinting 
Ayrton Senna's JPS Lotus- 
Renauft from the front of the 
starting grid, took his Canon 
Williams-Honda into an im- 
mediate lead and kept it there 
all the way to the chequered 
flag 70 laps later. 

Because he was the last of 
the leading runners to make 
his mid-race pit-slop for fresh 
tyres, he was still in first place 
when be sprinted bade onto 
the track alter an 8.4 second 
halt, yet his lead had never 
been more than 20 seconds 
and for much of the race was 
less than half that.

efforts to dose the gap. On one 
occasion he managed to get 
alongside at the end of the 
main straight, but Senna had 
the better line into tbe corner 
and remained ahead Then, 
during a final desperate effort 
with six laps to go. Piquet 
spun off on a tight left-hand 
bend and Frost went through 
into third place before he 
could rejoin die race. At this 
point the battle seemed to be 


was stOl able to claim fourth 
place, but this meant only 
three points — not quite 
enough to keep him in tbe 
championship contest 


Renault may 
withdraw 


Now. with two races to go to 
complete this tense season of 
grand prix racing, Nigel 
Mansell, his fifth grand prix 
win of the year under his belt, 
has the satisfaction of a ten- 
point advantage over his clos- 
est challenger — his team 
colleague Piquet - as they 
prepare for the next round in 
Mexico City in three weeks' 
time. 


“I knew I had to win this 
one if 1 was still to he in the 
hunt for the championship," 
he said afterwards while 
massaging his back to relieve 
severe cramp. The situation 
had been that tense. 


Estoril (AP) — Renault are 
expected to announce early 
this week that they are pulling 
out of worid championship 
grand prix racing. Authori- 
tative sources -said the action 
would follow the McLaren 
team's decision to stick with 
TAG Porsche engines next 
season.

and Alain Frost, 


With Senna in hot pursuit, 
he had needed to exercise the 
utmost coolness not to over- 
tax his .car or its tyres. 


especially during tbe first part 
of the race when his fuel 1 


load 

was heavy. But by maintain- 
ing an immaculate line, he 
gradually built up a cushion of 
time as Senna, Gerhard Berger 
(Benetton-BMW), Nelson Pi- 
quet (WQliams-Honda) and 
Alain Prost and Keke Rosberg 
(McLaren-TAGs) began their 
long and stirring battle for the 
runner-up position. 


Coupled with the expected 
decision of the International 
Auto Sport Federation (FISA) 
to reintroduce conventional 
engines for grand prix cars, it 
would mark tbe beginning of 
the end of the turbocharged 
era. Renault's racing spokes- 
man, Jean Sage, insisted yes- 
terday that no decision had yet 
been made.

But then Senna's car sud-

and Piquet had all almost

straight and just trickled over

Woosnam, who started out 
two shirts ahead of Partin and 
three in front of Rivero, com- 
piled a commendable 69 to win 
by seven shots from Ken 
Brown (69) and Jes6*Maria 


Canizaies (71), with an 11- 
under-par aggregate of 277. 

Moreover, he restored his

on the Brabazon course here 
12 months ago. 

Even so, it was a facile 
victory in tire end, with Parkin 
tottering from one catastrophe 
to another from the moment he 
struck his intended recovery at 
the sixth against a tree Just 
eight feet in front of him. 

The drive Immediately 
drained out of Parkin, who 
took three putts on the next 

& before going into a 
and the lake at the 
eighth and piling his tee shot 
at the ninth into more trouble. 
He toned in 42. 

When Rivero also drove into 
a hunker at the eighth, then 
watched his hopes of success 
sumberge as his recovery shot 
planged into water, the way 
was dear for Woosnam to 
become the firet British player 
to win a tournament on this 
course 

Woosnam has produced 
more electrifying final rounds, 
but on this occasion he played 
well within himself. little else 
was required and, more im- 
portantly, he captured his first 
European title since the 
Scandinavian Open in 1984. 
“Now that Fve finally won 
again 1 flunk I'D be aide to go 
out and win a couple more 
becanse I've got all my con- 
fidence back," Woosnam said. 

Canirares looked assured of 
second place on his own until 
he became a victim of the 
demanding 18th hole. His six 
there enabled Brown, runner- 
up in the European Open the 
previous Sunday, to finish 
joint second. Brown put to- 
gether a flawless performance 
with three birdies and 15 pars 
and, once again, he dem- 
onstrated that he had learned 
much from playing in the 
United States.

The final flourish: Heath celebrates after scoring the last of Evertoa’s three goals against Manchester United 

Little respite ahead for United 


Stuart Jones 
Correspondent 


Everton. 


Manchester United 


Ron Atkinson's woes con- 
tinue. Under most circum- 
stances, a defeat at Goodison 
Park would not be regarded 
with particularly deep con- 
cern. It is, after all, the borne 
of the only unbeaten side left 
in the first division. Yet these 
are no ordinary times for the 
manager of Manchester 
United. 

His discomfort,, once con- 
fined within OldTrafford, has 
become increasingly more 
widespread and yesterday 
afternoon it was beamed 
across the land. The evidence 
of United’s shortcomings, wit- 
nessed by only 25,843 within 
the stadium itselfi was laid out 
in front of millions of viewers 
who bothered to tune into 
BBC television. 

United were woefully 
vulnerable in the air in de- 
fence, ragged and unbalanced 
in midfield and notably blunt 
in attack. They lack nothing in 


character (they were the domi- 
* fol 


□ant force for most of the 
second half), but for a dub of 
such stature they were short of 
shape, belief and ideas. 

Atkinson's back four, 
though sound enough on the 


tur£ were no match for 
Everton above it The three 
goals they conceded and all of 
the openings that were other- 
wise created by their oppo- 
nents exposed an aerial 
weakness that is exacerbated 
by the reticence of the largely 
static Turner, comparatively 
small for a goalkeeper. 

He was beaten for the first 
time after a mere five minutes. 
Sharp rose above Sivebaek 
initially to win possession and 
then above Moran to nod in 
Power's subsequent cross off 
the underside of the bar. Had 
Whiteside and Moses ‘not 
cleared off the line, Turner's 
hesitancy would have been 
punished more severely. 

As it was. he conceded 
further goals in the dosing 
seconds of each halfi 
Stapleton’s weak clearance al- 
lowed Sheedy to volley in 
Everton's second and Moran's 
error at tbe end permitted 
Langley to chip onto the 
forehead of Heath. The vic- 
tory lifted them into second 
place behind Nottingham 
Forest 

United’s defeat left them 
anchored above only Aston 
Villa at the bottom. Atkinson 
may plead that injuries have 
limited his line-up. For the 
first time in 18 months, for 
instance, he was able to in- 
clude Robson, Moses, 


Strachan and Whiteside as his 
midfield quartet Yet they 
were a disjointed unit 

Until Olsen belatedly re- 
placed Whiteside, who ottered 
nothing constructive of note. 
United had no weapon on the 
left, tiie flank where Everton 
were numerically weaker. 
Strachan, on tbe right, in- 
dulged too often in his irritat- 
ing habit of “diving” in an 
attempt to win free kicks to 
provide a consistent threat 

The positive contribution in 
midfield, therefore, was left to 
the admirable Robson, who 
carried the heavy burden as 
willingly as ever. He claimed 
United's lone goal, his first of 
the season, with an eleventh 
minute volley that brushed 
the fingertips of Minims on its 
way in. Nor was that his only 
inspirational moment 

He led United's vain search 
for an equalizer but, in spite of 
several dear opportunities, 
the accuracy of his colleagues 
and of Stapleton in particular 
was wayward. Thus, their 
dismal record against Evbrton 
in the League was maintain ed. 
They have won none of their 
last eight fixtures. 

Atkinson, whose future 
would seem to be linked 
inextricably with the presence 
of his captain, was not dis- 
heartened by tbe performance.

“The luck is j 
way," he said. “We 
battling away, as we have done 
all season, and it was cruel to 
give a goal away on the stroke 
of halftime. Nothing mud) is 
going wrong except the 
results." 

The run of poor results 
stretches far beyond the open- 
ing day of the season. Since 
their triumphant sequence 
was broken from 11 months 
ago. United have won only L3 
of their last 39 games in the 
first 'division. Such form 
would lead a side towards 
relegation rather than the 
heights which Atkinson’s dub 
expect as their rightful 
destiny. 

At least there should be 
some light relief in mid-week. 
They take on Port Vale in the 
first leg of the second round of 
the Uttlewoods Cup. But, 
after that,' there will be no 
mercy. Next Sunday United 
are to be put on show in front 
of the nation again. They meet 
Chelsea and the only 
compensation is that they wfll 
be at home.

Forest’s new breed a joy to behold 


By Simon O’Hagan 

At the start of every season, 
the search is renewed for the 
successors to Liverpool as the 
exemplars of English football 
and already this year, some 
fascinating, if not entirely 
conclusive, discoveries have 
been made. 

So far, much of the talk 
about breaths of fresh air has 
been directed towards 
Wimbledon, though it seems 1 
fair to say that the value of 
their achievement lies not so 
much in their style of play as 
in showing that the tap be- 
tween obscurity and fame is 
not unbridgeable. 

In terms of tactical break- 
throughs, not to mention the 
sheer pleasure that is afforded 
by watching them, tbe real 
revelation of the season has 


been Nottingham Forest Top 
of tbe first division and the 
scorers of 22 goals in seven 
matches — six in each of their 
last two - they have tbe class 
to provide Brian Clough noth 
his third championship win- 
ning team to follow Derby 
County in 1972 and Forest in 
1978. 

Dough's ability to get the 
best out of his players is as 
much his trademark on tbe 
field as is his occasional 
outspokenness off ft. He is 
also renowned for balancing 
the youth and experience 
equation to perfection and, in 
this side, be has a sensible 
distribution of senior men — 
Metgod in defence, Bowyerin 
midfield and Buries in attack 
— supported by some of the 
brightest young prospects in 
the country in tbe likes of 


Walker, Webb and Clough. 

Given the chance to turn 
good players into great play- 
ers, rather than make good 
ones out of average ones, 
Clough can still produce some 
devastating results, as was 
shown on Saturday in Forest's 
6-2 win at Ch e lsea. Equally 
characteristic of Dough is. his 
desire to keep such a score in 
perspective. “We showed 
Chelsea that we are capable of 
creating a lot of chances and, 
at the moment, we are taking a 
good percentage of them" be 
said. “But our test will come 
when we cannot score a goal to . 
save our lives. That time will 
arrive at some stage this 
season and that's when we , 
shall find out how good we 
are."

was displayed at the Forest 
supporters’ end of Stamford 
Bridge on Saturday only told 
half the story. Chelsea were 
demolished, but by a team 
whose method is to pick the 
lock, not stick a few pounds of 
gelignite into ft. 

. Like tbe best lock-pickers, 
Forest make the intricate look 
easy. They are masters of the 
subtle; inventive, passing 
movement — in this respect, 
Webb and Clough mate for a 
delightful combination when 
they are going forward — yet 
quick to adapt to a situation 
which demands foe longer 
bafl. 

Here the - influence of 
Metgod is pervasive. Metgod 
knows all about building at- 
tacks from foe bade, while 
retaining a sharp eye for the 
floated 50-yard pass which 
releases the two wingers. 

However, -Forest did not 
have ft all their own way to 
start with. No sooner had 
Webb put them in front after 
four minutes, with a header 
from a comer, than Chelsea 
responded with crisp goals 
from Bumstead and Nevm to 
mate it 2-1 after nine misntes. 
For a while, the rapadousness 
of Chelsea’s tackling pre- 
vented Forest from settling. 
Then, in the quarter of an 
hour before half-time, three 
beautifully-tuned breaks by 
Carr, Forest's brilliant young 
winger, led to another goal 
from Webb and two by Birties. 

Chelsea only had one wore 
chance to get back into the 
match, and that was ruined by 
Metgod. Tarnishing his noble 
image, he pulled down Dixon 
after he was put in the dear by 
Nevin. An outrageous exam- 
ple of foe professional foul, it 
earned him a booking when 
surely he should have been 
sent off 


The game was over, 
Chelsea's defence disintegrat- 
ing in the face of Forest's 

bewildering approach work as 
Birties (penally) and Webb 
eat* went on to score foetr 
third goals. That takes Webb's 
total this season to ten goals in 
seven games, some going fora

Starkey 
loses 


big-race 

ride 


By Mfcbad Seely 

Pat Eddery is to take brer 

fa? O'* fc.w-LS 

Panring Brave fa the Pnx de 
■'Arc de Tnomphe at 
on Sunday 

and also fa the Breeders Cop 
at Santo Anita on Norembw L 
This startling announce- 
ment was made yesterday by 
Grant Pritehard^ordtm, 

° 1 *The decision fa favour of 
Eddery does not imply 

severance fa foe long and 
saccessfal association wiflj 

not available,” he said. 

“The plans for Danting 
Brave remained unchanged, 
pritchard-Gordon went on. 
•The colt will go to France, 

provided that foe ground is not 
too heavy. In that event he wfO 

be diverted to Newmarket for 
the Champion Stakes." 

This bland and diplomatic 
statement reveals nothing of 
the emotion generated inJnne 
over Starkey's riding of Dano- 
i ins Brave at Epsom, where the 
(•three-year-old finished so 
strongly to be beaten half a 
' by Sbahrastani fa foe 


Cl Uj* 

Starkey has ridden foe bril- 
liant colt fa six of his seven 
wins, but Eddery was sub- 
stituted for foe first tune fa foe 
King George VI and Queen 
Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at 
Ascot On that occasion, 
Starkey was replaced because 
of a pulled muscle fa his 
shoulder. The champion 
jockey elect's production of 
Dancing Brave with an 
impeccably-timed run to beat 
Shardari by three-quarters of 
a length was Bttie short of 
perfection. 


Retainer worth a 
seven-figure sum 


For foe next three seasons, 
Eddery has been retained to 
ride Abdulla's horses world- 
wide for a reported seven- 
figmc sum, but it bad been 
expected that, after Starkey 
bad resumed Us association 
with Dancing Brave fa foeir 
recent victory at Goodwood, 
Harwood's stable jockey 
would remain in the saddle fin- 
the rest of this year, “rmvery 
sorry that (Seville . isn't 
riding," was Harwood's only 
comment. 

The jockey himself said at 
Lougchamp: “Tm disappoint- 
ed not to be on Dancing Brave. 
I feel that foe Arc is his race 
and that he can win ft.” 

There is no doubt that 
Harwood will be inwardly 
disturbed at this latest devel- 
opment Tbe trainer and 
Starkey, in the past 14 years, 
together with Geoff Lawson, 
Harwood's brother-in-law, 
have put their joint shoulders 
to the wheel to make 
Coombehmds Racing Stables 
one of foe most formidable 
organizations of its kind fa foe 
country. 

Obviously, if Starkey had 
won the Derby on Dancing 
Brave, instead of being beaten, 
it would have been difficult to 
have replaced him now. And it 
would be presumptuous- to 
guess that that controversial 
defeat is foe main reason for 
this latest development 


Case of the owner 
calling the tune 


However, Abdulla, foe 
season's leading owner and a 
member of the ruling family of 
Saudi Arabia, has always been 
a fervent admirer of foe jock- 
ey, particularly since he rode 
Rainbow Qnest in last 
season’s Arc, a race he was 
awarded after the disqualffica- 
tion of Sagace. And it is 
obvious that the wishes of one 
of the world's richest men has 
been the overriding factor' In 
the decision. The inan who 
pays the piper has called foe 
time. 

One can only fed that 
Starkey has bran harshly 
treated. Whatever the rights 
and wrongs of foe Epsom 
Derby, and there are many 
horsemen who feel that tbe 
jockey was placed fa an impos- 
sible dilemma after Dancing 
Br ave h ad been hampered fa 
foe first two furlongs, Starkey 
has lost few big races, if any, 
that he should have won. 

However, there could stiD be 
a dramatic and exciting twist 
to tins- lengthy saga. Later at 
a grim-faced 
Stortey added; “I've already 
said that I'm disappointed but 
I can now add tfar I^n not 
Particularly surprised." - 

Stotoe and Starkey are old . 
friends and allies and have 
achieved many big race sue* 
<*»« together. And if Yves 
oauit-Martin is required to 
Partner Da rare for foe Afp 
*« foe Arc, it could wdl - 
be that foe season's leading ■ 
framer mmht caU on Starkey's 
apices for either Shardari or : 
Sbahrastani, after Walter 
Swinbuni has made his choice 
between foe pair.
