Brighton and Hove Albion currently sit eighth in the Championship table ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Wigan Athletic. Oscar Garcia’s men know a win could move them to within a point of the all-important PlayOff places. However, today Brighton & Hove Independent offers a different table – one ranked on the amount of money each Championship club lost, according to its most recent financial reports. Earlier this year the Seagulls revealed an annual loss of £14.7 million last season as the club tried to force its way into the top flight. But as you can see from our alternative league table, that loss is chicken feed for some of the Albion’s rivals who face financial oblivion unless they >> Continued on page 3

> Continued from page 1 can manoeuvre a return to the Premier League and its untold riches. Brighton’s hierarchy remains confident they will hit the £8 million loss ordered by new Financial Fair Play rules ahead of next season. But can the same be said for other clubs currently jostling for league position with Oscar’s charges? ■ See the full report below

Albion and their £14.7 million loss Football clubs fighting it out for promotion to the Premier League are estimated to have lost around £250 million chasing the dream. Brighton and Hove Albion recently revealed an annual loss of £14.7 million for the year up to June 30 – covering a season which saw the Seagulls get to within a whisker of a Play-Off final and potential promotion. Figures show the club spent 101.5 per cent of its total income on player and wage costs – shelling out £280,000 on wages per league point during the 2012/13 campaign. However, a quick look around the league shows The Amex outfit were far from alone in spending more than they earn. In fact, of all 24 teams competing in last season’s Championship, just three broke even in their latest set of accounts. Of them, Crystal Palace only showed a profit due to the multi-million pound sale of Wilfried Zaha to Manchester

United. Had they not cashed in on their top asset, the Selhurst Park club would have been £12.3 million in the red. The true extent of Championship losses is not yet known as a host of teams have yet to publish their updated accounts. But looking at the most recent results, Brighton sit seventh in the loss league – a long way behind table-topping Bolton and their £50 million deficit. In fact, the six teams who have admitted higher losses than the Albion drastically eclipsed the Seagulls. Even the side immediately above them lost £13 million more than Tony Bloom’s men. And there were definite positive signs for the Seagulls. Turnover increased from £22.1 million to £23.3 million – with a boost to ticketing, commercial and retail income which rose to £14.3 million from £13.8million. However, revenue from Football League dropped from £5.7 million to £4.8 million due to a new reduced deal for TV rights and the club increased its playing budget by 41 per cent from £14.8 million to £20.9 million. Nevertheless, the Albion hierarchy is confident it can meet the £8 million loss limit now imposed on clubs at this level under Financial Fair Play (FFP)by the time it submits its next accounts. A string of expenses which will not be repeated annually feature in these accounts and a stack of record commercial and sponsorship deals will be reflected next year. The club’s cup run this season has also been worth around £700,000 to the Albion – a figure which could pass £1 million if

the Seagulls can beat Hull City in Monday night’s replay. And the sales of Liam Bridcutt, Ashley Barnes and Adam El Abd have already added an estimated £4 million plus to the club’s coffers. Kieran Maguire, a finance specialist at the University of Liverpool, said Brighton were in good hands to address the eyewatering figures – highlighting the estimated £200 million

investment from chairman Tony Bloom and the expertise of chief executive Paul Barber. He told Brighton & Hove Independent: “£14.7 million annual losses are frightening, but also further evidence that Tony Bloom gave Gus Poyet the resources to challenge for the Play Offs last season. “However, as 2012/13 was

Greens aim to topple their council leader Green councillors are trying to oust the leader of Brighton and Hove City Council Jason Kitcat, according to reports. A year after failing to replace Councillor Kitcat, some members want to change the rules to stop the council leader winning a third term as leader – or convenor – of the Green group. Councillor Alex Phillips and Councillor Mike Jones have been reported to be backing the move which was described by one senior party figure as “extremely destructive and not good for the city”. Opposition parties called it yet more proof that the Greens, who as a party are not whipped, were too divided to run the council. Green Party insiders dismissed the coup as a

“rearguard action” from a small group of disgruntled individuals adding that it was “unlikely” that the motion would get the required support required. Since 2010, the convenor of the Green group has been chosen through an electoral college with half the votes coming from serving councillors and the rest from party members. Last year, a group of Green councillors, who labelled themselves the “watermelons” to underline their commitment to socialism, wanted a change of leadership. But they were unable to convince the then deputy council leader Phélim Mac Cafferty to stand against Councillor Kitcat in the party’s annual elections. They

the final season that clubs could break FFP rules without sanction, other clubs took a similar ambitious approach, and total losses in the Championship last season are likely to exceed £250 million. “The challenge facing the Albion board is to raise income to ensure the £8 million FFP maximum loss is not breached. The good news for fans is that the club are targeting commercial

revenue sources rather than fans to reduce the gap, and some costs are excluded for FFP purposes “Paul Barber and his team have also taken a very careful look at costs, and the largesse of his predecessors has been eliminated. “Realistically, the club have to make up about £3.5 million in their finances to achieve this goal. It is a tough task – but it is achievable.”

Brighton travellers site plan to be reviewed by minister Frank le Duc @BHcitynews

A cabinet minister has called in the plans for a permanent travellers site in Brighton. Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles will review the decision to approve the plans for the Horsdean site. The scheme was approved by the South Downs National Park Authority Planning Committee on Thursday, February 13. The proposal was submitted by Brighton and Hove City Council’s Green administration, with support from the Labour Group. It allows for a 12-pitch extension to the current transit site, making a total of 33 pitches, housing up to 150 travellers and all their vehicles at any one time. The proposed site is in the South Downs National Park. The announcement that the planning permission would be reviewed was welcomed by Patcham Conservatives. Councillor Geoffrey Theobald spoke against the application at last week’s national park authority planning meeting. Councillor Theobald argued that the proposed new site would contravene national planning guidance issued just last month that traveller sites should be built in areas such as Horsdean only in exceptional circumstances. Two local experts in hydrology – one a former managing director of Southern Water – also spoke against the application. They raised serious concerns about the effects a new site would have on both the quality of the drinking water in the aquifer and extraction adit that sits directly below Horsdean and also on the amount of waste water carried from the site through the already overrun sewerage system that

serves Patcham. Councillor Theobald said: “I am very pleased that the Secretary of State has listened to the people of Patcham and beyond and decided that these ill-thought through plans need further consideration. “I campaigned long and hard for the national park to be established in order to protect the South Downs from inappropriate development. “I feel that last week’s decision by their Planning Committee was a betrayal of all that I, and many others, fought for. “If this is going to be allowed then what is to stop other downland sites being developed for conventional housing, particularly with the planning inspector recently telling the city council that their housing target is far too low?” Fellow Patcham ward councillor, Carol Theobald, added: “Given the regular flooding we see at Patcham, it would be absolute madness to tag another large settlement on to a sewerage system that is clearly struggling to cope with the current levels of water entering it. “The Horsdean site itself is also prone to flooding and concreting over large parts of it will further exacerbate ground water run-off. “We don’t feel that these concerns, and the concerns our experts have about pollution of the water supply which serves the whole of Brighton and Hove, have been taken seriously by the SDNPA committee. “Horsdean simply isn’t a viable location for such a large traveller camp.” Conservative candidate for Patcham ward Karen Miles said: “I always thought the A27 bypass was supposed to act as a corset around the city beyond which no further significant development would take place. “Therefore, I very much hope,

Second complaint upheld against anti-20mph group A decision was made this week to uphold all 11 objections, made by 15 complainants, against the advert placed by Unchain the Brighton Motorist (UBM) in The Sussex Argus newspaper in September last year. The Advertising Standard Authority (ASA) found that there was not enough evidence to substantiate the many claims made by UBM in the advert. It was therefore misleading and breached advertising standards. Brighton & Hove Friends of the Earth (BHFOE), one of the complainants, welcomed the

decision. Chris Todd, planning and transport campaigner for BHFOE said: “We’re very pleased that the many objections to the advert were upheld. It shows we were right in our criticism of UBM’s many wild and exaggerated claims about 20 mph. “It’s just unfortunate that this process has taken so long. This advert has already misled the public and influenced the response to a public consultation. Getting the ruling now is a little like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.”

for the sake of local residents and all those who value the unique South Downs landscape, that Eric Pickles overturns this decision.” Frank le Duc is the founder and editor of Brighton and Hove News. For more information visit:

NHS needs emergency care if we are to halt the inexorable shift towards privatisation cowboys Tony Greenstein @TonyGreenstein

I found myself spending three days in the accident and emergency unit of the Royal Sussex County Hospital. The treatment from medical staff was second to none, but what I was seeing is privatisation by stealth. Unlike in the United States, you do not first have to produce your credit card before being admitted. How long is that going to last? It is proposed that “immigrants” who pay taxes will be charged. Once you accept scapegoating, the principle has been conceded. The Conservative-led government introduced further “reforms” into the NHS - the intention of which was to increase “competition”. It was Tony Blair who first introduced “choice” with scandals such as Stafford the result. “Savings” and privatisation kills people. The Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust recently appointed a new chief executive, Matthew Kershaw at a wage of £180,000 - who in Lewisham, with Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, suffered a legal defeat when appeal court judges ruled he had acted illegally in cutting A&E and maternity services at Lewisham Hospital in southeast London. More than 25,000 took part in the campaign. A hospital is nothing without its cleaners, kitchen staff and porters. They were transferred from the NHS to Sodexo last year and have been told that their legal rights to the same terms and conditions are void. Sodexo have consistently failed to pay staff the right amounts and on time. The porters who take patients for scans and so on are losing on average £20 a week. Privatisation of cleaning led directly to MRSA as cleaners took short cuts. Sodexo food is appalling and not fit for your pet. Yet nutrition is essential for

recovery. Equipment is always out of action. Sodexo is a French multinational with £12 billion revenue in 2010. With an annual budget of £109 billion (in 2012-2013), the NHS represents a massive “cash-cow”. Since the Health and Social Care Act became law, more than £11 billion of services have been transferred to the private sector. Well over 100 private companies are involved, many with no prior experience. All the scandals regarding care of the elderly will inevitably be repeated. A leaked government document referred to £20 billion of services up for grabs. I received a “Patient Viewpoint” questionnaire; so I asked a few questions of my own. Sodexo staff did not want to talk. They had been personally written to and told to keep quiet. When I promised anonymity, however, they poured their hearts out: wages not paid on time and too low; cheating on overtime pay; broken equipment. The list was endless. Sodexo’s first act was to try to make 90 staff redundant. That failed. Ambulance workers are next. Hundreds of staff in Brighton and Hove have already lost their jobs or had their contracts changed. Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton Rather than the closure of entire hospitals - not yet anyway department. South East Coast - or departments such as A&E ambulance service call centre is or maternity, plans are being run by Harmoni, implicated in executed and drawn up to many failures round the country.

Southlands Hospital neurovascular services, which in Worthing has been closed. means the closest service for Eastbourne District General Brighton and Hove residents would Hospital has lost its maternity be in London or Southampton.

Despite the denials of Mr Kershaw, a plan for out-sourcing hospital security and reception is being drafted. The outpatients’ pharmacy is to be formed into a separately registered company. Ultrasound services, physiotherapy, Integrated dermatology services, Brighton and Hove Council Health and Well-being Board, and substance misuse service are to be put out to procurement. Sexual health (Claud Nicol Centre) is going out to tender. This service works closely with the HIV Aids service. There are serious fears for the future of this service if sexual health is hived off. The Stop Smoking Services in

Brighton and Hove, and West and East Sussex, have already been put out to tender. All the major political parties - even, it would seem, Brighton’s Green Party - see privatisation as beneficial when the evidence is the opposite. A private company will inevitably see making a profit as a priority - by cutting the pay of staff.

Tourism boost for Brighton and Hove The number of overnight visitors to Brighton and Hove rose 5 per cent in the most recent year for which figures are available. And the same research estimated that the value of tourism for the Brighton and Hove economy rose 4.3 per cent to £753 million. The figures come from a research study called the Economic Impact of Tourism Brighton and Hove 2012 by Tourism South East. It said that total visitor numbers stood at about 8.5 million, unchanged on 2011, overnight stays rose 5 per cent to 1.4 million. The total number of visitor nights spent in the city rose by 7.5 per cent to 4.8 million. The tourism sector employed more than 19,000 people or the equivalent of 14,600 full-time staff. Councillor Geoffrey Bowden, the chairman of the Brighton and Hove City Council Economic Development and Culture Committee, said: “I’ve no doubt it’s been a difficult time for families and businesses but these figures show we have remained very successful at bringing people to the city. “It’s testament to the quality of our tourism offer that visitors

spent more money here in 2012 than they did the year before when the nation was generally tightening its belt. It’s likely that the Olympics helped. “We’ll still be striving to make the place yet more attractive to visitors. “The arches being built on the seafront will really smarten the area near the West Pier, bringing new cafés and shops. “And we’re working with organisers to stage another fantastic season of large events to draw the crowds.” Glynn Jones, the chairman of Brighton and Hove’s newly formed Tourism Advisory Board, said: “It is vitally important that the city, in partnership with business, finds ways of investing in the seafront and also addresses the ever-changing demands of our visitors by improving and extending the range of world class and state-of-the-art attractions that we can offer.” Mr Jones, chairman of the West Pier Trust and a former chief executive of the council, added: “If we fail to do this, existing visitors and, importantly, those thinking of visiting us for the first time will go elsewhere where the offer is better.”

Laura Lockington @bookloversupper

Care of Wooden Floors by Will Wiles Good grief. Is there anything more stressful than looking after other people’s homes? If anyone has ever done a spot of house-sitting, I beg you to read this book. It seems easy enough: Oskar has entrusted his minimal arty flat to an old university friend while he goes to rescue his marriage to Laura, an art dealer in California. The flat and the two cats named after Russian composers - are in an unnamed eastern European city. The apartment is beautiful, perfect and uncluttered - with a very large expanse of the most pristine, gleaming and expensive wooden floor. Oh dear! This book is about how a tiny oversight can set off a trail of

farcical, disastrous and even fatal chain of events. It is also a very accurate essay in friendship. How well do we know the people that we count as friends? Just because we were close with them once at work, or university, does the friendship last any longer than that? Oskar leaves a trail of incredibly-detailed and damning notes secreted around his apartment for his friend to find, with devastating effects. I suffered high anxiety while reading this book and terrible moments of explosive laughter followed by eye-widening horror. The spiralling set of disasters keeps you turning pages and willing our hero on long after a decent time to go to sleep. You will never leave your dishwasher door open again. Just saying.

The city’s tourism industry has continued to prosper despite bad weather and a sluggish national economy, according to latest figures

Your Views



Green leader attacks Labour’s ‘misleading’ figures Ed Balls and Hilary Benn have confirmed that the Labour Party is committed to Tory austerity plans into the next parliament, including more huge cuts to council budgets. So, instead of dwelling on that depressing position, local Labour councillors are desperately trying to distract residents from these awkward truths. For example, I was disappointed to read some of the misleading claims in Councillor Warren Morgan’s piece (page 23, February 7) opposing our proposal for a social care referendum on a 4.75% council tax rise. Firstly, he falsely claims the rise will cost £6 a month - when for the clear majority of households (Bands A to C) it will be £4.53 a

month or less, with those in Band A paying £3.40 a month. Indeed, your paper clearly showed this with the chart on a previous page of the same edition. The other common comparison is using Band D, those households would pay £5.09 extra a month compared to last year’s bills. Cllr Morgan has these figures, but chooses to ignore them and mislead. We recognise times are tough and that these can be significant extra sums to pay for households, but to protect essential care services we think now is the time to let the people decide on whether they wish to pay that bit extra, or not. Next Cllr Morgan falsely claims

Indeed, the council’s management numbers and costs are at their lowest in well over a decade. 3 Public reports have shown our huge procurement savings in a wide range of areas from stationery to software to vehicle purchasing. 4 Finally, lots of council services from human resources to school transport have gone through service reviews and redesigns, saving very large sums in the process. Most blatant of all was Cllr Morgan claiming the Toryproposed tax freeze was a “contrick”. Astonishing, as that is exactly what I said in 2012 - only for Cllr Morgan’s Labour Group to vote

with Tories for a tax freeze. This move alone meant we have £4m less in our budget this year, and millions less in previous years. Without that freeze then, we may well have not needed to propose the 4.75% increase now. Odd that Labour did not think a freeze was a con-trick two years ago, but now they do. Of course, Cllr Morgan is free to disagree with our carefullyconsidered position to protect social care services. But I think he would do the debate and citizens a great service by sticking to the facts while he does so.

The question is: What exactly is the Labour Party for these days? I would like to respond to Davis Lepper’s mean-spirited, inaccurate and ultimately self-defeating letter (page 11, February 14). Quite apart from his repetition of the mythical cost of the proposed referendum, shown to be inaccurate by the accompanying editorial, he offered us his opinion of the Green Party administration as “intensely disliked” by “so many people in so many parts of the city”. Well, maybe Mr Lepper should talk to some people outside of his Labour Party activist grouping. I can assure him that most people I talk to have larger questions in their minds. For example: “What exactly is the Labour Party for these days? Does it stand for anything other than the promulgation of Tory-lite policies? And, if it gets into power, will it actually behave anything like a Labour Party?” Mr Lepper could refer to the excellent letter below his, from Neil Harding, which - while taking

we have not undertaken valuefor-money savings, management restructuring, better procurement or service reviews. False, false, false and false! 1 We have made multi-millionpound value-for-money and efficiency savings every year, as clearly shown in the public quarterly budget reporting. Nearly £60 million has been saved from the budget in the last three years by doing things differently and being more efficient. 2 On management, Cllr Morgan might recall we inherited the Tory structures of “intelligent commissioning” and “strategic directors”. Those structures are all gone; we have reduced senior pay and management staff numbers.

the Tories to task for their policies might give him and his party a few hints as to what older ideals they could sensibly espouse in order to persuade us, the electorate, that they have a reason to exist other than to distract votes from the Green Party. I have lived in co-ops, worked in co-ops, and have voted Labour most of my life. But as long as politicians such as Mr Lepper and Councillor Morgan insist on playing childish political games with us, the electorate, I for one will be voting Green, and will vote particularly for Caroline Lucas, in the general election, as a politician who genuinely cares, who does not play party games, and who has proven herself to be rigorously efficient in representing her constituents.

Mike Holland has got it wrong on flooding

Mike Holland’s flailing contributions to your paper are rarely accurate. His Valentine’s Day effort (page 14, February 14), however, was particularly illinformed. With respect to the hardworking chair of the Environment Agency, Mr Holland in his cheap attack omits to mention support for Lord Chris Smith (ex-Labour minister) from both the current and previous environment ministers (both Tory). On funds for dredging, Mr Holland does not mention - or maybe does not know - that new Treasury rules on flood work require £8 of benefit for every £1 of cost. So, under this government, a full dredge of the Somerset Levels just did not add up. Then, Mr Holland is bizarrely offended by Lord Smith’s quite reasonable comment that houses in flood plains may be more prone to flooding. Offensive is the only way to describe the subsequent comment that those affected by floods in Bangladesh are not worse off than flood-affected communities in the

His arbitrary proposal to cut our less dealing with flooding. overseas aid to the same per-capita Councillor Ollie Sykes, Green basis as the United States would councilllor for Brunswick and affect thousands of the poorest Adelaide people on the planet. And this soon after it was found that the richest 85 people in the world now control the same resources as the Flooding the world with overseas aid does not help poorest 3.5 billion. It was agreed people struggling at home at the UN General Assembly almost 50 years ago that wealthy countries would aim to spend 0.7% of their GNI on overseas aid. Few have managed that. The US languishes way down the rankings, below Ireland, Portugal and Iceland. The UK is near the top of the list and we should be proud: both of this fact and of the way we provide overseas aid NOT ENOUGH TIME? and development funding which, RELAX. unlike in the US, is not tied to LET US DO national business interests. THE CLEANING. I agree more needs to be spent now on flood defences. But do not take it from overseas aid. Just spend less on subsidies for climate-change-fuelling fossil fuel extraction, such as the new fracking incentives. Then, Mike Holland’s article in last week’s newspaper

Mike Holland @RealMikeHolland

If it was not so sad for the thousands of people across the country affected by the floods, it would be humorous to watch the antics of those supposedly in charge of flood prevention. I have watched - and listened to - the pathetic excuses of somebody called Lord Smith, who is apparently in charge of the Environment Agency. It seems the government guidelines were that he only sanctioned up to £400,000 last year for dredging, and so on. Sounds like a pretty pathetic excuse to me - and a bit on a par with cheques being “lost in the post”. But that is his excuse and he is sticking with it. He even added insult to this ridiculous excuse by telling those


that lot. Now hold on: if it is not their fault and it is not the fault of the Environment Agency, whose fault can it be? “ Of course, it must be our fault! Again. Well, this is my suggestion and it is a simple one. Let us stop pretending we are some sort of superpower. There is only one of those in the western world and that is the United States. The US donates a little over £20 I do not buy the argument billion a year in that those affected by floods in foreign aid; the Bangladesh are worse off than little old United Kingdom will our own people” have donated a whopping £11.3 making a tour of the Thames billion in this year alone.

we are expected to donate. As much as I like Boris Johnson, I do not buy his argument that we need to realise those affected by floods in Bangladesh are worse off than our own people who are in the same boat - if you will excuse the pun. As we are so keen on following the US so closely, we should be offering to pay the same amount pro rata as they are and not over three times as much. If our overseas aid budget were to be capped at say £3 billion which is about where we would be on a per capita with the US - then we would not be in this

pickle. If Boris and whoever else unhappy, they can clutter to Bangladesh. And please t Lord Smith with you. Most of us are fed up w subsidising the rest of the wo I think we are also equ fed up with all this polit propaganda about how w the country is doing and h well off we are.

Let’s stop pretending and get on with tidying up our seafront Mike Holland @RealMikeHolland

Well the dear old West Pier is looking even sadder than usual following the violent storms we have experienced over the past few weeks. Of course we all know that none of what’s left can be saved anyway, but left as it is, it is a solitary reminder of what was and what could have so easily been. Over the past few weeks we have heard the usual claptrap from the higher beings presiding over the West Pier Trust (WPT). Their top brass have been holding forth advising everyone who will listen that the i360 is the only show in town, and letting us know how lucky we all are that Marks Barfield have graced us with their presence. The sad fact is that they are probably correct

a pier, so let’s stop pretending and get on with tidying up our seafront. It really won’t take much and as it is not now going to be necessary to give Marks Barfield £36 million to build his white elephant, we can use a bit of that facility to carry out the works. We have been told time and time again by Jason Kitcat and his cronies that they would simply be Any serious player who borrowing the money ever was interested, including to give to Mr Barking sorry lend). Well myself, has long given up and (oops if we can borrow it moved onto other projects” to give to him we can borrow a bit to tidy up need to be safely removed. The our seafront instead? The section from the Palace WPT will need baling out from public funds to do this, however, Pier to the King Alfred is our as it has no assets whatsoever most visited section of seafront and exists by selling of pieces of and this is the area we must the very pier they were set-up to concentrate on. There are not enough toilets and the disabled save. The i360 will never happen, facilities are, to say the least, and nor will anyone ever build pathetic. For a resort like now as any serious player who ever was interested, including myself, has long given up and moved onto other projects. The irony is that these conceited individuals actually started with a pier, and have managed to make such a good job of saving it that we now have a rusting hulk that will at some stage

The seafront shelters are little more than fit for scrap along with what’s left of the West Pier

Brighton we ought to be ashamed of ourselves. Let’s spend a bit of that available funding on proper facilities which are accessible to all. Whilst we are on the subject of pathetic structures, the seafront shelters are in such an abysmal condition - that along with the majority of the fixed seafront benches - they are little more than fit for scrap along with what’s left of the West Pier. It doesn’t really matter now whether we have a structure of any kind where the West Pier used to stand. Opinion is so divided between those who are vehement about either wanting a pier or a viewing platform that we forget there is a third option.

That option which I suspect is supported by the vast majority is pretty simple, and only involves tidying up the seafront to stop it resembling a war zone. The West Pier was great as was the Ice Rink in West Street, the Hippodrome and the Regent Ballroom. However, none of them are coming back, times change and we need to move on. We can always console ourselves that the people who purchased our Palace Pier run it efficiently, albeit they have had the audacity to change the name. Thank goodness the WPT never got their hands on that to save or we might have been looking at two rusting hulks.

A Brighton Science Festival event has been held to explore how developments in science are helping to identify the remains of missing First World War soldiers. The Café Scientifique talk explained how archaeology, science and anthropology are being used to put a name to some of the WWI dead using the kind of forensic techniques often seen in TV programmes such as CSI and Silent Witness.

A bike hub has opened in the disused fruit and veg market in Circus Street, Brighton. The hub offers to help people fix, maintain and get their bikes back on the road for free. It has been set up by the Brighton charity Groundwork South and volunteers have already collected more than 35 abandoned bicycles from Brighton Station this week. They will be refurbished and brought back into use.

Letter bombs sent to the Army careers office in Brighton and six other areas were the work of “amateurish terrorists”, according to a national newspaper. Shops and offices in and around Queen’s Road, Brighton, were evacuated and a number of roads were closed after the letter bomb was received. Anti-terrorism officers from the Metropolitan Police are working with police officers from Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic to identify the senders.

Priory House, at the corner of Bartholomew Square and Little East Street, Brighton, is part of the same building as the Thistle Hotel and is linked to Brighton Town Hall. Baron Estates is marketing the six-storey building on a long commercial lease. It has 121 years remaining of the original 149 years. It was built in 1987 with green cladding on a reinforced concrete frame and has been empty for just over two years, since October 2011. The city council granted planning permission for a change of use from offices to homes in December. The planning permission does

not allow the 13 parking spaces that come with the property to be given to future residents. Instead there are planned to be 54 cycle parking spaces. The six floors have a total area of just over 25,000 square feet.

My aim is to bust the jargon, condense the plethora of social media options, delve into search and keep it interesting. All in under 300 words. I thought it would be a good idea to kick off with a couple of things to look out for in the digital landscape of 2014. Firstly, to stand out in the world of social media you’re going to have to start paying I’m afraid (unless you have the next ‘Tweeting Bra’ – Google it). Facebook offers a fantastic paid-for-advertising service, which allows you to segment and target the audience you require. Twitter offers a paid-for solution and we’ve heard plans that even Snapchat are going to embrace this. The great thing with any of this sort of advertising is the ability to start from as little as £3 per day. Evaluate your results to define your success and that

return on investment isn’t far away. Next Google+. I know, I know, not another Google product, but this is worth spending time on. Google factors social sharing into their rankings system - and with its products merging - this is one social channel to start getting to know. The industry has been predicting mobile internet traffic to overtake desktop traffic for some years, but 2014 seems like it’s finally going to be the year where this is going to happen. If your website isn’t responsive (designed to fit on any device) then now’s the time to start thinking about it. With so many analytical tools available for free (Google Analytics being the first stop for any budding digital marketer), my biggest piece of advice for 2014 is to monitor and evaluate all of your online efforts.

appeal and there’s a certain pleasure in, for example, seeing Dujardin reunited with Goodman (his co-star from The Artist) or the constant bickering between Murray and Balaban. However, the performances feel curiously subdued in places, leaving you longing for a more knockabout atmosphere in the ensemble. The Bad The film’s main problem is its uneven tone - it’s not funny enough to succeed as a comedy (one of the more painful running

jokes involves Damon speaking terrible French) and not exciting or tense enough to work as a thriller. It also has a faint air of preachiness and continually overstates its central theme about exactly why great art is worth dying for. Worth seeing? The Monuments Men remains entertaining thanks to its likeable cast, but the script and tone are slightly uneven. Still, worth a watch. Recommended.

The places I eat

Joe’s Café

A bigger, better breakfast: Joe’s Café is the perfect way to start the day

@joesbrighton Facebook: joescafebrighton2013

Claire Beveridge @placesieatbtn

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, setting you up with the necessary fuels to sustain peak performance throughout the next 24 hours. Some choose oats and grains; some rely on eggs; and others like their breakfasts big and bold. If you fall into any of these three categories, I suggest you take a stroll to Joe’s Café. Joe’s Café was taken over by Dan and Jane Cook, a husband-andwife duo with not only a lifelong passion for high-quality food, but also a burning ambition to run a local, community-based café. Just over 12 weeks ago, their dream became a reality and Joe’s Café opened its doors for the first time. With a menu that focuses on crowd-pleasing breakfasts and lunches, the magnificent highlight

of Joe’s Café is the quality of the food on offer. Advised by breakfast king Iain Chambers, of Seven Bees Café fame, Dan and Jane have sourced some of the finest breakfast ingredients that Sussex has to offer. Expect sausages, black pudding and bacon from Okham Farm, freerange eggs from Holmansbridge Farm, bread from Real Patisserie, and Wobblegate juices from Bolney, West Sussex, - to name but a few of the traceable places that supply Joe’s Café. Using these local ingredients, Dan and Jane serve up a terrific menu of fry-ups, hashes and sandwiches all at low, competitive prices. I ordered the “Joe’s Bigger Breakfast”, which came with sausage, bacon, toast, tomato, beans, fried egg, fried potatoes, mushrooms and black pudding all for the small sum of £6.95. Magnificently-plated, the

Joe’s Cafe also has an on site baker ‘The Brighton Cakery’ -

Grape of the Week

Some of the finest breakfast ingredients that Sussex has to offer

breakfast was a huge portion. Crispy, salty bacon, long and thick pork-filled sausage, wonderfullyslippery fried mushrooms that swam in a generous helping of baked beans. The black pudding was round, thick and of a superb richness, which - when paired with the sweetness of the large, grilled tomato - was a heavenly combination. The fried potatoes were crisp on the outside with a fluffy interior and proved a much-needed saturator to the runny golden yolk. The breakfast came with two slices of chewy, buttered white toast - ideal for mopping up the plethora of gorgeous juices from the beans, egg and mushrooms. The quality of the ingredients really shone through and it was immensely satisfying knowing that, yes, it’s clearly not the healthiest of meals, but everything was fresh, local and traceable. Aside from the breakfast

bonanzas, Joe’s Café also serves slow-roasted pork baps, a wide selection of sandwiches, coleslaw and additional lunchtime sides. Cakes are supplied by the Brighton Cake Group - which is run by Dan’s sister, Lyndsey. Joe’s Café take reservations, a blessing considering the steady stream of people through the door looking for breakfast. Hats off to Jaz on front of house, she handled the hefty flow of customers with professionalism and a smile on her face - so important in the competitive world of Brighton cafés. Iain Chambers may be the king, but there is certainly a new breakfast Prince and Princess in Dan and Jane. Welcoming, affordable and high quality, I doubt there is a better breakfast in Brighton.

This juicy dark skinned variety is most commonly found in the vineyards of California where it is prized as one of the oldest and most established varieties in the country. This grape was originally only used to produce dark and fruity reds; Zinfandel is now, however, far better . known as a white wine variety especially in this country. These are a group of whites with a slightly pink hue due to contact with their heavily pigmented skins. Often on the sweeter side, the California sun and soil bring out a tropical flavour palate that makes them great as drinking wines. Often found in the cheaper bottles, if you look carefully you can find a variety of more refined and sophisticated specimens. The whites pair very well with heavily spiced dishes such as those found in Cajun, Indian and oriental cuisines and Mediterranean fish dishes. Their red counterparts are a great accompaniment to meat of all sorts, especially lamb and beef, as they respond well to the slight sweetness. Sam Gardom @SamGardom

Brighton stylist Jane Busy @Janeforstyle

Sussex Active

There is a more wholesome and enjoyable side to Ibiza than drunken partying Tom Gallagher @GallagherTDG

a more wholesome side of Ibiza, far from the maddening crowd. Beneath the warm sun and amid the azure of the Mediterranean, scuba-diving, mountain-biking, rock-climbing, hiking and horse-riding can be enjoyed throughout the year. At Acrobosc Ibiza, a tree-top assault course awaits; Ibiza Air Zone offers extreme Zorbing experiences; and the natural environment can be utilised for any number of activities. Approximately 18 kilometres of natural sandy beaches mark Ibiza’s coastline and kitesurfing is fast overtaking windsurfing as the key water sport. Now, I am no kitesurfer; In fact,

flying a kite with my daughters on the Downs can sometimes be a challenge. But, in Ibiza, the easy warmth and shallows of Cala Martina offered me scant discomfort. Cala Martina is a sheltered stretch of sandy beach where a fabulous coastal walk can also be found. As a 16-year-old in Ibiza, the thought of getting on a bike that was not a clappedout moped - which completely invalidated my travel insurance - was the last thing on my mind. But experiencing the island’s unique beauty by mountain bike, through craggy coastal trails and wooded pine-scented tracks, was a profound experience. In

When I first travelled to Ibiza, it was for no better reason than to consume as much of life’s pleasures as possible. I was only 16 and had just left Dorothy Stringer High School; a group of friends and I decided the best way to celebrate this turning of the school tide was to spend two weeks partying on the island. We discharged our responsibilities admirably. Surrounded by a multitude of like-minded souls, we crafted that particular elegance that only young British holidaymakers in Spain can. A couple of years later and I returned. This time my visit might have been more refined in that I had lost the Union Jack boxers and songs about how really very good Brighton and Hove Albion are. But it was no less hedonistic than my first visit. And, once again, it was bloody good! A few decades then passed and with an expansive liver that just could not take the pounding any longer, I found myself back in the Balearics and experienced Kitesurfing is overtaking windsurfing in popularity

Pretty Good Thinking Chilean rosehip seed oil is the secret of the Rosa Mosqueta range Sarah Morgan @sarah_morgan

Aubrey Organics Rosa Mosqueta range is made with pure organic rosehip seed oil from Chile. This “gold standard” line started in 1986, but the new ethical packaging is bang up-to-date and pretty shiny. Actually, these are the smartest in my boudoir so far, and I really prefer spritzing toner and squirting out cleanser to minimise on wastage. I am in my late 40s, so I need something really turbo to get my

glow on. This line is ideal for dull, dehydrated skin and helps with fine lines and other signs of ageing. You may have come across Chilean rosehip seed oil before, but it is great to use it in cream formulations.

one guided three-hour tour, I appreciated more of the island than I had in my three weeks of furious club-crawling. And, sitting upon the saddle of my bike, as the impossibly beautiful countryside before me gave way to the shimmering sea, I realised I was happy to be enjoying this different view of my erstwhile alcoholic playground. I cycled on, bitterly lamenting yet another indication of the passing of my youth. Across Ibiza, a host of active travel experiences can be found and a culture that is about as far removed from the party island image as it’s possible to get. OK so I might put my back out once in a while putting on my socks, but I can appreciate the real adventures in travel that my 16-year-old self was too drunk to understand.

I am growing my longish fine, dry and curly hair, which is slow-going but worthwhile. The Rosa Mosqueta Nourishing Conditioner is £16.99 for 325 mls and has impressed me beyond any other natural hair product I have ever tried before. I immediately had vibrant, touchably soft hair with increased shine. The blurb is spot on: it fortifies hair fibre; it rehydrates and detangles, with potent herbal oils that protect natural and colourtreated hair from dryness and fading. The pearly conditioner smells delicious. The vitamin-rich shampoo is a rich tan colour, lathers well, and is on special at £8.92. The Revitalising

The weather is tempremental, and the cold spell is set to continue until we arrive into spring. This does not deter shops filling up with their lovely fresh new season stock. There’s something for everyone. There are the strong bold colours, limey greens, bright corals and piercing blues, as well as pastels, earthy natural colours and a lot of black and white. The look is very much black and white with a splash of bright colours as a stripe or vibrant shoes and accessories. The trend is very feminine for womenswear, with some great floral patterns and an exciting mix of fabrics. Leather is strong in biker jackets, trousers and skirts and you will notice metallic fabrics are key on the high street. The exciting news for Brighton is that Maje and Sandro - the beautiful chic French stores - have just opened in East Street. Black and white is featuring strongly in both stores. The outfit pictured here from Hobbs NW3 and is typical of the spring/summer look. Jane Busby is a stylist and personal shopper

Aubrey Organics: These are the smartest in my boudoir

Therapy Moisturiser is another standout at £18.49 for 50 mls, with a lovely almondy smell and really unusual action. It smoothes in like a white mask on application and almost instantly disappears without any hint of shine. I really enjoyed the uniquely-soft matt after-effect. And the fragrance is strong but soothing. Perfect under make-up. I tried the gel mask without any real expectation. But leave it on in the bath for 10 minutes, to enjoy a gorgeously subtle facial. At £13.49 for 89 mls, I would rather do 10 of these at home than pay

at a salon. At night, I doused in the pure seed oil Nutrient, which is effective as a longer recoverystyle treat (£11.99 for 11 mls). Golden rosehip seed oil gives many therapeutic benefits, including improved skin texture and elasticity. Naturally rich in the essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic) necessary for skin-cell health, it protects and supports skin’s collagen with vitamin C and retinol (a form of vitamin A). With some brands, you try them once and convert forever. Do not say I did not warn you.

Our weekly fitnessrelated column could not possibly brush over the Winter Olympics that are currently taking place in Russia. Regardless of controversy that has surrounded them, we - as a country - have made news for all the right reasons since the games started. We encounter the subject of skiing more often than you would imagine at BeauPilates incorporating ski-like exercises into our Dynamic Reformer routine. So if you are going to be leaving Sussex and taking to the slopes this spring - or simply looking for an improvement in your core stability and balance - the following exercises are designed to increase your physiological performance, while also acknowledging the specific bio-mechanics of skiing in order to reduce injury. If you are a follower of our weekly features - or if you are a visitor to our studio - you will know that our mantra is everything to do with posture, balance and “proprioception” (awareness of the position of one’s own body), all of which skiing examines. The steeper the pistes, the faster you go; personally, I am lingering on the green slopes for now. There is intense pressure on your ability

Britain’s poorest drivers hit by rising cost of motoring The least well-off families in the UK have slipped further into transport poverty, according to new figures. Data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) for the RAC Foundation found that around 800,000 car-owning households spent at least 31 per cent of their

disposable income on buying and running a vehicle in 2012, compared to 27 per cent the previous year. The poorest families had a weekly spend of just £167. And £51.40 of this was to buy and run a car, including £16.40 on fuel, £9.50 on insurance and £6.10 on repairs

and servicing. Professor Stephen Glaister, director of the RAC Foundation, said: “For the poorest car owners, there is little opportunity to cut motoring costs further. They’ll already be driving as little as they can and will have cut back on things like maintenance.”

Try the squat hold

to balance between your dominant and non-dominant sides. ■ Let us take a quick look at how to approach perfecting your technique for the pistes: To begin with, try the squat hold: squat down - ensuring the key principles of feet, knees and hips facing forwards; make sure your back is at 45 degrees; simply hold for 60 seconds. ■ Then, as a perfect progression, maintain the same position as above; gently lean to your right, allowing your hips to transfer all of your weight over to your right heel. Slowly extend your left leg away from the body, then - while gradually squeezing through your left inner thigh bring that leg back towards the start position. Swap sides and repeat.  ■ If you dedicate yourself to the above exercises, you will not fail to increase your stability, balance and perfect your skiing technique. And they are helpful for all of us, not just those who are hitting the Alps or Apennines. ■ If your stomach can still handle it, we have not discussed what happens when turning to your less-dominant side: a plethora of imbalances at your hips and legs can occur.

Albion fans to be treated to cup replay tickets by the club Richard Morris

Seagulls supporters heading north on Monday evening to cheer their team on during the FA Cup replay with Hull City will be able to get the price of the ticket reimbursed by the Albion. Brighton and Hove Albion have told fans the club will cover the cost of entry to the KC Stadium as a thank you for their continued support. It means that any season ticket holder or member who buys through the Albion ticket office will be treated to the ticket price in the form of credit on their Seagulls card. Tickets for the match are £15 for adults, £10 for seniors (over 65) and young people (aged 16-22), £5 children (aged 10-15), and £1 for children (under-10s) and the Albion are hoping a bumper flock of Seagulls supporters will head to Humberside for the potentially money-spinning match. The Albion’s cup run has already been worth between £650,000 and £700,000 to the club

Brighton fans heading to Hull City will have their ticket money refunded by the club

according to chief executive Paul Barber and a replay win would boost that north of £1 million. Announcing the ticket deal, Mr Barber said: “The potential for progressing further in The FA Cup is an exciting prospect and, as ever, our supporters can play an important role in helping the team on the night. “We have had wonderful support from our fans all season and we hope that this gesture for our most committed season

ticket holders and members will go some way towards making the long trip north more affordable for our fans, and act as a small thank you for the great support we receive.” The offer has already seen a number of Brighton and Hove Albion fans snap up tickets but more are available either online at, by calling the ticket hotline on 0844 327 1901 or in person at The Amex Stadium ticket office.

AITC launches its first Brighton to Paris bike ride Cycling enthusiasts are being encouraged to get on their bikes this summer and take part in Albion in the Community’s (AITC) first ever Brighton to Paris bike ride. Launched in partnership with American Express and the Giant Shoreham bicycle store, AITC hopes the challenge will help raise funds to support disability sport across Sussex, whilst generating awareness of the charity’s work.

Players from the Albion’s first team will wave an estimated XX riders off from the American Express Community Stadium on 20 June 2014, as they embark on a three day challenge, cycling 130 miles through the rolling French countryside before arriving at the Palace of Versailles in Paris. Michael Edwards, Chief Executive of AITC, said: “I am extremely excited to be launching our first ever Brighton

to Paris bike ride. Whether you are an experienced rider, or just want to physically challenge yourself, the bike ride is open to people of all abilities and it is a great opportunity to get involved and help support the fantastic work AITC does.” For more information about the race including registration, please contact Millie Lanz, Fundraising & Events Manager, on 01273 878288 or email Millie.

Big match preview: Brighton & Hove Albion vs Wigan Athletic

Oscar Garica

Monday fixture madness will impact Oscar’s selection Having managed to get his team to within striking distance of the Play-Off places despite suffering an unprecedented injury list, Oscar Garcia now faces having to negotiate his Seagulls squad through two key matches in the space of 48 hours. Bonkers rules banning top flight clubs from playing on the same night as Champions League fixtures mean both Brighton and Hull City have to play key matches tomorrow (Saturday) before facing off again in the FA Cup on Monday night. And for the Brighton head coach it means further juggling his squad in an effort to overcome promotion rivals Wigan Athletic at The Amex before assessing the walking wounded ahead of the trip to Humberside. Wigan moved above the Albion in the Championship thanks to their 2-0 home win over struggling Barnsley earlier this week and both teams will be hoping for maximum points tomorrow as the pair look to close the gap on sixth place Reading. Having sat out the televised cup draw, Tomasz Kuszczak is a certainty to return to the starting 11 – bar any last-minute injuries – and Stephen Ward should come back in at left back in place of the

impressive Adam Chicksen. Oscar faces a more difficult decision in central defence after Lewis Dunk – promoted to third choice centre half after the sale of Adam El Abd – produced a near man of the match performance against Hull City alongside Matthew Upson. The likelihood though is that Gordon Greer will return to captain the side, with Dunk returning to the team on Monday. Dale Stephens is cup tied and so will almost certainly start tomorrow, while Rohan Ince should also feature as the young midfield continues to establish himself as a key figure in Oscar’s team.

4231 formation against Hull City, with Keith Andrews alongside Ince in the deeper midfield slots and Jake Forster-Caskey operating behind Leo Ulloa. The approach succeeded in the sense it provided more support for Ulloa – who had been isolated at times in recent weeks – but minimalized the attacking output of winger Kazenga Lua Lua, who found himself in a more congested central position than he is accustomed to. Andrea Orlandi, if fit, would seem an obvious pick to replace Lua Lua in that left hand position and Solly March could come in for Will Buckley as Oscar continues to delicately manage the later’s return from injury.

I am very proud of the performance of all my players. We played very well against a Premier League team and a very good side. “We had our chances to win but they did as well. In the first half we were the better side and in the second half it was very even. “If we had scored the second goal then the game in the second half would have been different but we did not do it and they then scored. “We knew that until the end Hull would push and press us but we had our chances, we didn’t take them and Hull took maybe the last one. “We will see how the squad copes now as it’s not easy to play two games in three days against two Premier League squads like Wigan and Hull”
