Anger sparked by new speed limit plan
The controversial advertisement that appeared in The Argus, a Sussex newspaper
Continued from page 1 “Referring to 20mph speed limits, it claims: ‘there is no evidence to suggest it creates safer roads’. This is demonstrably untrue.” The draft complaint goes on to refer to evidence in a Department of Transport circular, dated January 2013 and entitled “Setting Local Speed Limits”. One quotation from the document states: “There is clear
evidence of the effect of reducing traffic speeds on the reduction of collisions and casualties, as collision frequency is lower at lower speeds; and where collisions do occur, there is a lower risk of fatal injury at lower speeds.” Another states: “20 mph zones are very effective at reducing collisions and injuries. Research in 1996 showed that overall average annual collision frequency
could fall by around 60%, and the number of collisions involving injury to children could be reduced by up to twothirds.” The letter of complaint concludes: “There is a mass of research evidence to this effect, available from reputable sources online. We would be happy to direct the ASA to these sources should it require further evidence. “One can choose to dispute this evidence or even dismiss it. But to claim none exists is neither truthful nor honest.” The row comes on the eve of the Green Party conference in Brighton, at which Jason Kitcat, the city council leader, will present his “midterm report”. In the nine-page report, he states: “We are now on course to provide the largest contiguous 20mph area in the UK.” One Green Party source described the advertisement – which appeared in a Sussex newspaper, The Argus - as “incorrect and bogus”. The newspaper did not mark the full page as an “advertisement”. In a second letter to Michael Beard, editor of The Argus, Cr Davey said he was “dismayed” to learn that “factually incorrect and incredibly misleading adverts” had appeared in The Argus. He said: “It is simply a lie that
£86.26: The price of politics IT is barely the price of a good meal out for two: £86.26. That's how much Robert Knight, the Conservative candidate spent in his battle to be elected to represent the citizens of Hanover and Elm Grove. Unsurprisingly perhaps, he came third - with just 275 votes. Official figures show that Emma Daniel, the victorious Labour Party candidate, spent £1,171.70 - just within the legal limit of £1,202 and got 1,396 votes. Her closest rival - the Green Party's David Gibson - was even closer to the expenses limit, spending £1,199.38 in the closelyfought by-election on July 11, when he got 1,358 votes.
Patricia Mountain, for UKIP, spent £313 and received 250 votes, while Phil Clarke, of Trade Unionists Against The Cuts, spent £510.16 and received 172 votes bringing the total for all candidates to £3,280.50. The sixth candidate - Lev Eakins, for the Liberal Democrats - has yet to file his expenses, apparently putting himself in breach of rules that require the paperwork to be completed within 35 days of the election. An official in Brighton and Hove's electoral services office said: "It is overdue. We have chased them several times. But the ball is now in their court to get them to us."
When approached by the Brighton & Hove Independent, Mr Eakins said: "This is the first I have heard of it. My agent told me he posted it some time ago." So how much did he spend? "It's a round number," Mr Eakins said. "The roundest number there is: a big fat zero. We're keeping our powder dry for more fertile ground for Liberal Democrats." Later, having spoken to his agent - "a student who had never been an agent before and has since moved house" - Mr Eakins said: "I have spoken to the electoral services office and they are sending out the paperwork again. There's no conspiracy. It's a cock-up."
there is ‘total lack of evidence’ for 20mph limits when The World Health Organisation, Department For Transport, NHS NICE and many more bodies have all scientifically concluded that 20mph limits are proven to work.” Cr Davey went on: “Whoever is paying for these adverts is wilfully and maliciously presenting falsehood to readers. They deserve huge fines from Advertising Standards. “Who is it? They don’t say who they are or give references. Anonymous because they know that they are wrong. “You would be wise to refuse to print any more of this rubbish. If you do, then I will report you to Advertising Standards too as wilfully colluding referencing this email.” “Please respond with the details of whoever booked this ad so that I can report them. Please also tell me your position on printing any others like it.” Last night, one of the people behind the planned series of advertisements claimed the campaign had the support of
one leading Labour Party figure – although he did not say if the support was financial or simply political. Another said: “What happened to free speech? What happened to reasonable parking tariffs? What happened to our roads? What happened to our fantastic city? “The Green council made negative changes to the city, so they must listen and learn from the negative response the city throws back at them.” A spokesperson for the Advertising Standards Authority said it had yet to receive any complaint. She said that all “marketing communications” had to be obviously identifiable as such. And they must not materially mislead or be likely to do so. The ASA’s code states: “Marketing communications must not mislead the consumer by omitting material information. They must not mislead by hiding material information or presenting it in an unclear, unintelligible, ambiguous or untimely manner.”

The future is bright at Brighthelm Centre
B e n i h s d n Rise a
Jason Kitcat Many readers will know of the Brighthelm Centre in the North Laine - and some will know about the changes that have been taking place over recent months. The centre has been going through a major overhaul to modernise and revamp the community facilities there. The garden has been tidied by a team of volunteers, and now includes edible plants growing in raised beds; there will be further work next year. The outside of the building has been cleaned and repaired, including the historic Hanoverian facade, dating from 1825, as well as the modern side on North Road. I recently saw the lovely refurbished café area, which has a new glass frontage and doors to welcome people in from

North Road. The café serves reasonablypriced food and drink, including fair trade as well as local,
Organisations use the centre for everything from a community meeting space to exercise classes seasonable and sustainable products.
They have also taken on two apprenticeships in the café, working closely with the catering department at nearby City College. The Brighthelm pre-school has just been given a colourful overhaul and is expanding its hours of operation for local parents. The school can now take up to 30 children aged two to five. Finally, Brighthelm plans to be a green hub for the city, and now hosts organisations such as Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, Food Matters, Frack
Off and Brighton & Hove Energy Services Company. Like the council, they are also working towards “One Planet” sustainability principles, and they’re retro-fitting the building to reduce its carbon footprint and energy bills. Hundreds of organisations use the centre for everything from a community meeting space to exercise classes, for office space,
and for worship. It’s great to see Brighthelm continuing to work with local residents to develop a new range of brilliant community facilities for local people.

Masterplan to improve Valley Gardens “gateway” Greg Hadfield A radical masterplan to improve Valley Gardens - one of the main gateways into Brighton and Hove - has been unveiled by the city council. Proposals for the 23 acres of green space, which dates from the early 19th century and runs from The Level to Brighton Pier, aim at redressing the balance between vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. They include: • a tree-lined avenue for both northbound and southbound traffic, on the eastern side of Valley Gardens; • a "park road" for buses and cyclists on the western side; • simplified crossing points for pedestrians. The plan also includes changing the seafront roundabout to a junction to improve traffic flow and make it easier for pedestrians to get to and from the beach. From Monday (September
16) - to coincide with a public consultation - there will be some temporary changes to the space to show people how it could look in the future. For two weeks, the lawns around St. Peter’s Church will host a pop-up café, seating designed by University of Brighton architecture students, a sound installation, and a "borrowed’ garden" - created by Brighton & Hove Food Partnership and comprising edible plants borrowed from community gardens across the city. The Playbus will visit three days a week and a Street Diner Food Market will be on Wednesdays and Sundays. Councillor Ian Davey, lead member for transport, said the proposals followed a previous public consultation and a series of workshops with stakeholders. He said: “We are listening and developing the vision from what people are telling us they would like to see. Our aim is to improve the
Let us know your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org
Valley Gardens Q&A: What the council says • Why do we need to improve Valley Gardens? In a consultation last year, more than four in five people (83%) said they would like to spend time or more time in Valley Gardens if the area was improved; only one in four (26%) thought it was pleasant to walk through; fewer than one in five (17%) felt it was easy to cross the road. • Will it take longer to get in and out of the city by car? No. The proposal seeks to make it easier for everyone to move through the area, irrespective of how they travel. Simplifying the road layout should allow vehicles to move more freely through the area, while reducing the negative impact transport infrastructure currently has. • Will the proposal improve traffic flow in the area? Many of the busiest transport routes in the city pass through Valley Gardens and what is there at the moment is inconsistent and often over-complicated. This creates problems and confusion for drivers and other existing or potential users. Vehicle routes between the Level and the seafront could be quite simple. Overall space for vehicles can be reduced by about a quarter meaning more public space. • Is the council trying to reduce traffic in the area? In order to be deliverable in the short term, the scheme is designed to accommodate existing levels of traffic. It is hoped the proposals will
increase the attractiveness of other travel options. • Will the roads be subject to the 20mph limit? The 20mph city-centre speed limit does include Valley Gardens. Through good design, the council feels it can improve behaviour and awareness of people moving through the area, irrespective of the maximum speed limit. • How do the proposals improve pedestrian and cycle connectivity? Proposals include simplified crossings - where pedestrians will never have to cross more than two lanes of traffic in one go - and formal footpaths through the gardens. Reducing the amount of space given over to roads means that footway space between buildings and roads almost doubles. A dedicated cycle route will be provided along the length of the gardens. Confident cyclists will be able to share the roads with vehicles and recreational cycling will be allowed within the public spaces. We are also planning to add new cycle parking facilities in the gardens. • How will buses operate in Valley Gardens? The proposal sees a simple, consistent bus route running along the western side of Valley Gardens between the Old Steine and the Level. The idea is to have three simple bus interchanges with improved facilities at St Peter’s Church, Marlborough Place, and the Royal Pavilion.
whole of Valley Gardens as a public space so that people can enjoy spending time there. “Valley Gardens is one of Brighton and Hove’s hidden gems, part of the city’s heritage, which has been somewhat lost with busy roads on both sides cutting the area off from the communities around it.” Council officials emphasised that the proposals were at an early stage and were subject to change following the latest consultation, which runs until September 29.

Smile! You've all New offices - and exhibition space for Clearleft been framed! w ww.c re ate . net | @ C reate | # BMMF2013
Fun for all at the Clearleft opening
Clearleft, the leading digital company, has celebrated the opening of its new building in the Middle Street, Brighton. The four-storey building has undergone extensive renovations over the past six months and will be home to company's digital consultancy team - as well as offering rentable office, desk and meeting space to the digital community. The launch party welcomed more than 100 guests to a barbeque - thanks to The Little Blue Smokehouse - on the building's roof terrace. Guests included speakers at Clearleft’s renowned dConstruct event, which took place the previous day. Meanwhile, a digital musical tabletennis room kept many children amused. Among those congratulating Clearleft on the new building were Phil Jones, managing director of Wired Sussex; Jon Pratty, of Arts Council England, and Bill
Thompson, of the BBC. Previously based in Kensington Street, the company will occupy the first and second floor of the 900 sq ft building; the ground floor will become an event, meeting and exhibition space, housing a large auditorium and smaller meeting room for the digital community. Before Clearleft move into their office at the end of September, the building’s ground floor will house a new exhibition as part of the Brighton Digital Festival throughout September. The New Sublime exhibition is open every Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm. It is an ambitious, artist-led exhibition, showing work by 11 emerging and established digital artists. Participating artists in The New Sublime include Alex May, James Alliban, Kate Genevieve, Evan Boehm and the Fortunecats. The show includes painting, sculpture, installations, performance and
video work - all of it exploring the new artistic possibilities presented by digital technology. Andy Budd, founder and managing director of Clearleft, said: “We had a fantastic launch party on Saturday night - great timing at the end of the first full week of the Brighton Digital Festival and the day following dConstruct. We owe a huge thank-you to the highly-visionary Landivar Architects, who made our hopes a reality and everyone involved in the project. “We’re looking forward to moving into the space later this month and booking our first events in the new auditorium. Being able to rework this historical building into a hub for Brighton’s digital community is a real privilege." The two new meeting and event rooms at 68 Middle Street will be available to hire from October, incorporating one large auditorium seating up to 60 and a smaller meeting room for up to 10. Desks can also be rented on a short-term basis in the new building for digital start-ups and freelancers; three desks are currently available. For more information, visit 68middle.st. Clearleft create human-centred digital products and websites. The company is privately owned and was founded in 2005 by Andy Budd, Richard Rutter and Jeremy Keith. The company employs 16 staff, including senior world leading user experience consultants, designers, creatives and writers. Clients include Channel 4, The Week, Matter, Amnesty, and Mozilla.

Beautiful French cottage, 'Le Cresserelle' for sale Inclusive of all fees and taxes 'Le Cresserelle' is a 500-ish year old Normandy farm house, sitting between the market town of Gavray and the cathedral city of Coutances, on the Cherbourg peninsular. It sits beside a tributary of the river Sienne and nestles in just under an acre of mature garden. The house is full of character with exposed beams throughout. The large lounge has a newly fitted, very efficient wood burner and recently laid concrete floor. The farmhouse kitchen was fitted in January. It includes stainless steel sink and range cooker. There is a central island and lots of cupboard and storage space, plus plenty of room for the dining table and chairs. From the kitchen, there is a dining room with French doors to the garden, which is currently used as a third bedroom. Also leading from the kitchen is a wc/shower room. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and family bathroom. There is also a huge barn/garage, which offers a huge development opportunity for a great conversion. The previous owner will be on hand if you need any assistance, as he is staying in the local area.

No more condoms on carrots Jean Calder Tim Loughton, MP for East Worthing and Shoreham - a former children’s minister - is backing a campaign for sex and relationships education (SRE). He wrote: “The laissez-faire approach to SRE is not working and the DfE (Department for Education) needs to get a grip.... We need much more about the relationship bit of SRE, not just the mechanics of sex. We should not shy away from a valuesbased approach which induces self-respect and confidence in impressionable teenagers and develops their emotional intelligence to resist being pressured into risky behaviour.”
The heterosexual age of consent has for decades failed to protect girls I was heartened to read this. Young people have been let down by both the coalition government, which has failed to introduce comprehensive sex and relationships education, and the Labour Party, which now supports SRE, but didn’t introduce it when in government. It’s not surprising there has been disagreement about SRE. It’s impossible to frame a coherent sex education curriculum without agreement about the age of consent and sexual equality – and, for many years, despite the uncompromising nature of the law, our society has been unclear about these issues. We have
found it easier to campaign to lower the age of male homosexual consent than to acknowledge that the heterosexual age of consent has for decades failed to protect girls. There is now far greater awareness of the modern sexualisation of childhood, of forced marriage, and - following the Rochdale and Savile scandals - of the systematic abuse of many adolescent girls by older males. Since the mid-1980s, however, successive governments permitted a culture of nonintervention in abusive early “relationships” – and the effects of this remain. For decades, police and social services failed to protect teenage girls, in particular, treating 13 as the de facto age of consent, putting neglected youngsters at risk of sexual exploitation by older and adult males and vulnerable teenage mothers at the mercy of abusive older men. Over these years, journalists and politicians of the right stigmatised and failed to protect teenage mothers, blaming them for raising “feral children”, while obsessing about the need for male role models and increased contact with estranged fathers - failing to realise these “role models’ were sometimes deeply abusive. Left politicians and “progressives” romanticised sexual activity in vulnerable young people, habitually referring to - and treating - young girls as “young women”. Professionals focused on vulnerable young people’s “right” to sexual activity rather than their safety, often ignoring their duty to protect young people and failing to question how they had become sexually active, whether they were aware of their right to refuse, or possessed any power to do so. While the right promoted marriage, resisted attempts to challenge sexist attitudes and blamed feminism for everything
We need more about relationships – not just mechanics of sex (Photograph: www.flickr.com/photos/fearlesstalldudekiller)
from boys’ bad behaviour and poor exam results to the breakdown of the family, the left told young people they should begin sexual activity when “ready”, failed to address sexist bullying and harassment of schoolgirls and - with a few honourable exceptions - had no real strategy to combat teenage pregnancy, other than to provide information on contraception and abortion. For years, politicians lacked the vision and courage to address the sexism and attitudes of contempt that poison social relationships in school and elsewhere. They refused to make religious schools teach a curriculum based on sexual equality - and they failed to address a history syllabus which, shamefully, could include a grotesque GCSE module on Jack the Ripper’s serial butchery of prostitutes, but left children
ignorant of the heroic campaign by Victorian reformer Josephine Butler to end child prostitution by raising the female age of consent from 12 to 16. Now, however, things are changing. Politicians have started to address the exploitation of adolescent girls and there is a new and vibrant movement of young feminists - and anti-sexist male supporters - demanding change. There’s a real opportunity to create a programme of education that addresses not just the mechanics of sexual relations, but also, crucially, the wider social issues: the right to safety, to protection under the law, to female and gay equality, and to a childhood free from exploitation. The stakes are high. Properly designed and taught, a new programme of SRE could, over
time, reduce sexist bullying and domestic and sexual violence, bringing improved parenting and incalculable social benefits. To be successful, however, it must be consistent and, once agreed, be delivered to all students in all schools without exception. It raised my spirits to find a Conservative politician such as Tim Loughton, who might once have been hostile to such ideas, echo Mariella Frostrup in saying we need “a celebrity ‘man army’ shouting loud and proud that rape and domestic violence is for cowards, child abuse is despicable and treating girls like pieces of meat is simply unacceptable”. I agree - and suggest a crossparty “man army” of politicians would be a great place to start. @JeanCalder101

Book surgery open for free prescriptions jumps out at me. I open my surgery at libraries, bookshops, literary festivals. And I do private consultations, too. Notably, an absolutely-charming 93-year-old woman who lives in Hove and is now flat-bound, but her mind soars through the pages of a book. I recently prescribed for her The Hare with Amber Eyes, by Edmund de Waal, and The Baroness, by Hannah Rothschild,

Sometimes you have to dig around a bit to make a good prescription. But it’s always fun and it’s always enjoyable. It helps that I have been a voracious reader since an early age. And I am one of those people that always, but always, finish a book - even if I’m not enjoying it very much. And I speed read. That’s something that my mother
taught me; sometimes - if I’m loving a book- it can be a curse, as I simply don’t want it to end. I am also lucky that working in the book business I get sent an awful lot of new releases. I usually start off by asking people what they’ve read recently that they’ve loved. Or hated. Or if there’s anything looming large in their lives that’s preying on their mind, like moving house, getting married (or divorced) and how they’re generally feeling at the moment. Lonely? Gloomy?

Laura Lockington In Paris We Sang, by Rose Cannan There is a hash tag on Twitter that people use to bemoan and belittle their tiny daily irritations: #firstworldproblems. Of course, it is done tongue in cheek. Fromagerie has run out of Vacherin! #firstworldproblems; my favourite cashmere jumper has shrunk! #firstworldproblems; just been served glass of Sauvignon too warm! #firstworldproblems. I bet Rose had wished for some more first-world problems in her long life. When I met her in her Hove flat, she told me it had taken her a long time to write her memoirs, because she had survivor’s guilt. She came to England on the infamous kindertransport, to escape Nazi Germany when she was 16. She’s now 91. She’s had one hell of a life. In between two marriages (one unconsummated), she is credited with inventing the modern blow-dry when she worked at an
East End hairdressers. She’s still very stylish, wearing black silk from Igigi, with a cream rose in her collar and silver hair in a chignon. She told me that my hair looked better up and that I should be a shade more blonde. She styled her clients, which included the then-editor of Vogue, with the same unflinching eye that she used to write this book. If your fillet steak is tough, or your wine is not as chilled as you would like, read this book and count every single one of your firstworld problems as an immense and pleasurable blessing. I know I did.
because she told me that her uncle had worked on the Rothschild estate as a young man. It sparked the most fascinating conversation about her family; she remembered things that her daughter told me she thought her mother had forgotten forever. One precocious 13-year-old told me she loved speculative fiction, so I steered her towards Marge Piercy and Margaret Atwood. One elderly man told me that,
since his wife died, he had no idea what to read as she had always chosen the library books. He wanted something cheerful and not too modern, so I thought PG Wodehouse would suit. Luckily it did, as he later told me in an email. The Book Doctor’s Surgery will be at the City Reads Vintage Fair on Saturday, September 21 from 2pm at The Old Market, 11a Upper Market Street, Hove.

There’s no need to be too hasty Drivers, cyclists, or pedestrians. We all get angry about the traffic on our roads. We know that speeding is wrong. Worse than that, it is dangerous. To ourselves and others. And we convince ourselves that breaking the law by a little isn’t really breaking the law at all. The law is often intended for other contexts, for when other cars are on the road, for rush hour, not for early in the morning or late at night. We never say it, but we often think the law is - to put it bluntly for other people. So some people are never angrier than when they get caught. And when others don’t. We have to believe - and agree - that the law is about right and wrong. Sometimes it’s even about life and death. If we don’t agree, then the law is not capable of doing its job: serving us all, and - in many cases - saving us all. If we don’t agree, the law ceases to be enforceable. And so we come to driving down Ditchling Road at 20 mph, with no other vehicle in sight except a cyclist, overtaking you, on the pavement. If you feel you haven’t been asked to sign-up to the speed restriction, it’s another piece of evidence to feed your anger. If you feel you’ve been consulted - and if you’re not in a hurry! - it’s not even an annoyance. There is no absolute right and wrong about the 20mph speed limit. It is indeed about context. About this, everyone is agreed.
Otherwise, there would be pressure to have a 20mph limit on the M23. The current debate an informed and democratic one, we would hope - is about where a 20mph limit is appropriate and where it isn’t. True, it is about risk. But it’s also about balancing risk and benefit. And some of the benefits of a faster-moving city are economic, as well as social. The anger of the as-yetunnamed supporters of the controversial newspaper advertisement about which we report today is understandable. A lot of people - especially those whose business involves getting around the city efficiently and safely - will sympathise. In many cases, opponents of the 20mph limit know what they are talking about. Quite literally. Chances are they are on our roads day in, day out. They speak not necessarily from selfinterest. And even if they do, that is their right. They have a right to be heard. And a right to rally support from those who share their opinions. Equally, the response of the Green administration is also understandable. It is unfair to argue they are motivated only by some thinly-veiled anti-car bias. Building barricades and lobbing insults over them won’t bring the agreement the city needs. Perhaps it’s time we all slowed down - and not rush to the barricades or rush through a change that does not command the support of all law-abiding citizens.
Green Party conference: Democracy in action Natalie Bennett Green Party leader When I talk to visitors about the Green Party conference, there’s one aspect that always needs more explanation. “This is the party’s supreme decision-making body," I say. "It’s where our policy is made.” That level of democracy, unseen in other parties, usually attracts incredulity. So I explain further: “Any four members of the Green Party can propose a policy. After a ballot in which all members have a chance to prioritise it, the most popular will be debated by conference. If a proposal is backed, it will become party policy. It's that simple, that democratic.” It’s then one of my roles as leader to promote those policies. I'm not surprised to see that the party's top two priorities, among many, for debate in Brighton and Hove this weekend are reinforcing our policy to bring the railways back into public ownership, and specifically opposing the government’s plans to hand back the highlysuccessful, publicly-owned East Coast line to a private operator. Renationalising the railways – and MP Caroline Lucas’s parliamentary private members’ bill with that aim – is a policy that gets a huge cheer wherever I go in the country. Also high on the policy voting list is a call for a ban on advertising targeted at children of age 11 or younger, a call to ban puppy farms and - with an international focus - a call for the government to change its trade policy to discourage imports, particularly of biofuels, grown on land grabbed from small

farmers and indigenous people in developing countries. But conference is far from being just about policy. It’s also a chance for us to hear and learn from a wide range of experts, union leaders and charities that can inform our decisions, our campaigning, and our future policy. I’m chairing two sessions that I’m particularly looking forward to: one is a panel on free schools and academies, with contributors including NUT general secretary Christine Blower and commentator Melissa Benn; the other is a session on food poverty with Jack Monroe, famous for the blog A Girl Called Jack, and Lisa Dando, director of Brighton Women's Centre. Caroline's panel on the operation of the railways should be excellent, with speakers including Peter Pinkney, national president of the RMT union, and Ellie Harrison, founder of Bring Back British Rail. Caroline is also hosting an important session on the Green NGOs’ report The State of Nature, with the RSPB, Wildlife Trust and Buglife. Many of these sessions, and others, are open and free to the public - including “What next for the lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality struggle after same-sex marriage?”; ”Fighting the stigma of mental illness”; and a session
considering the impact of austerity on women in Britain;. There are two film showings on Sunday night: Drill Baby Drill, an antifracking film, hosted by Keith Taylor MEP; and Secret City, about the City of London. Brighton and Hove residents may also see conference-goers on tours around local landmarks. Our Green-run council is taking the chance to showcase some of its work on housing, green spaces and in encouraging active transport. I haven’t visited The Level since it was re-opened; I’m looking forward to seeing the finished project. It won’t be all work: Green Party conference is very much a social occasion, and although media and official engagements mean I won’t get a lot of time to chat, it’s an excellent chance for Green Party members to catch up with old friends and make new ones. It’s also a great place to find out more about what the Green Party is all about. Anyone who’d like to do that is welcome to attend one of the days as an observer, for a £5 taster fee. The Green Party Conference is at the Metropole Hotel, starting at noon today (September 13) and finishing at 3.30pm on Monday. For more information, visit www.greenparty.org.uk

Urgent need for foster families I am vice president of Barnardo’s and I’m hoping to help highlight the urgent need for almost 9,000 more foster families across the United Kingdon. Loving and stable homes are currently needed for 7,100 children in England, with a particularly shortage of foster carers in East Sussex. As some of your readers may know, I was brought up by a lady called Violet, a Barnardo’s foster carer. I loved living with her and her family, my brothers and sisters. Violet was a feisty woman who instilled in me a belief that I could achieve anything if I set my mind to it and through watching her work as a seamstress I developed a keen interest in fashion and design. Barnardo’s Fostering SouthEast service is urgently appealing for people from East Sussex to foster. I’m sure your readers will agree that every child has the right to a stable and happy childhood, without foster families
children are missing out on the care and stability they so desperately need. Barnardo's would like to hear from any of your readers who are interested in fostering; the charity does not exclude anyone from consideration on the grounds of marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or employment status. There is no upper age limit to becoming a foster carer and Barnardo’s is keen to speak to older people with life experience, whether they are parents themselves or not. Barnardo’s and I would really appreciate it if you could notify your readers of the critical need for foster carers in East Sussex and let them know they can contact Barnardo’s Fostering South-East on 01892 510 650 to find out more information and chat through any questions they may have. Or they can visit www. barnardos.org.uk/ fosteringandadoption. Bruce Oldfield
Price cap needed on private rents I am 27, live in Brighton and Hove and still live at home! Private rents in Brighton and Hove are extortionate, compared with what ordinary workers earn. So in the attempt to do something about this situation - which more and more of us find ourselves in - I have started a petition on the 38 Degrees website to lobby the government to implement a price cap on private rents and to impose rent control and restrictions on private landlords. All I want, like many other people, is to be independent and be able to afford a fair rent for a fair property, which at the moment is not possible.
My friend recently moved from one private rented flat to another in Hove and told me of her dismay at the quality of the properties on offer at nearly 75% of her income. Brighton and Hove has a particularly high multi-occupancy rate in private properties, a lot of which are very low standard for extremely high rents. I saw an article in your last edition that was similar to my petition. So in view of that, I would be very grateful if you could share my petition: 38degrees.org.uk/petitions/ implementing-caps-on-private-rents Joanna Evans
Why pay 65p for The Argus? Your recent articles about The Argus newspaper struck a chord. Like many other Brighton residents, I have not bought a copy since the price rise. I get local news from BBC Sussex and from your paper. As The Argus declines, is there any reason why we cannot also
receive the London Evening Standard here? Apart from being streets ahead of The Argus, it is also free, like yours. Tony Black Editor's note: For information about our homedelivery service, see page 15.

Our Crocodile meat is a by product of Crocodile leather and is a white meat that many people think is comparable to Chicken or Crab. This is also a high protein low fat option.
Unsurprisingly our Kangaroo meat comes from Australia, where they are seen as a nuisance. It has been approved by the Australian Heart Foundation because of the extremely low levels of fat and high levels of protein, iron, zinc and omega 3.
Wild Boar Meat
Wild Boar is a very lean and ﬂavoursome meat and as you would expect some similarities to that of domesticated pork products. We have selected our cuts from Australia as it consistently has a rice dense texture and is low in Fat.
Goat & Green Chilli Burgers.
Goat has a strong, gamey ﬂavour and although a red meat, Goat is leaner and contains less cholesterol and fat than both lamb and beef.
Low in fat and cholesterol, High in nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and phosphorus
lean and tasty, water buffalo meat contains less than one-fourth the amount of fat and half of the cholesterol of beef. Cooked, it closely resembles (and tastes like) lightly marbled beef.

No nonsense at addiction recovery centre Mike Holland I like dynamic people who get things done. I had been invited to visit one such individual: the indomitable Andy Winter, chief executive of Brighton Housing Trust. I have always been impressed by Andy’s maverick style of management, because he is sincere, doesn’t take no for an answer, and definitely gets results. We were to meet at the trust’s head office in London Road, Brighton, with a view to having a quick look round, followed by dinner at their Addiction Recovery Centre, which is nearby. On arrival, I was ushered into the inner sanctum by Andy, where I was treated to a cup of tea in Andy’s no-frills, no-nonsense office. The only self-indulgence that I could see was a picture of Nelson Mandela on the wall, which I thought - for a nononsense, white South African bloke - spoke volumes. I was asked what I knew about
Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) and soon realised that I knew very little. Any previous views I had of the trust were really based on my experiences as a landlord. We have experienced endless hassle in the past with problem tenants, who upon being asked to leave through bad behaviour - immediately run off to BHT advisory service. BHT will invariably advise the tenant to stay put, which causes the landlord to spend a ridiculous amount of money
Tucked away, in the heart of the city, is one of best facilities I’ve seen in court costs in order to regain possession of their own property. I understand, of course, that BHT is acting for the tenant and not the landlord. But trust me on: the reason we no longer take housingbenefit applicants is largely because of the antics of BHT’s advisory service and they would be welladvised to take heed of that fact. What I simply did not know about BHT is the level of care and
supervision that Andy and his team of some 300 staff provide. I now understand the strict rules that any service-user must stick to in order to receive continued service. It’s not a case of three strikes and you are out. It seems, in all cases, one infringement of the rules and you are out. Full-stop. Tea finished, I was out of the door with Andy - who has been with the trust for 28 years - wasting no time and filling me in on what the trust did as we walked to the Addiction Recovery Centre. Tucked away, yet right in the heart of the city, is what I can only describe as one of the best facilities I’ve seen. I met several of the service-users, who came from all walks of life. We chatted with them about past experiences and their thoughts on the recovery programme. Not one person thought that any other programme they knew of was a patch on that offered by BHT. Service-users are not able to stay there forever and the programme is designed to take six to nine months in total, at which time they are relocated to move-on accommodation. Everyone has to make sure they

pull their weight in household chores. The house we visited is shared by six people and I can only say that the lady who seemed to be doing the lion’s share of the cooking would have put Gordon Ramsay to shame. I shared a delicious meal with a really diverse, interesting and appreciative group of people. Yes, Andy, you were right: I didn’t really know what you did
before. But I do now. I think you provide a fantastic service - not just in our city, but also in Eastbourne and Hastings. If it were not for BHT and matters were left to central or local government, rough-sleeping and drug issues would undoubtedly be a whole lot worse in this region. Good luck with the containers! @RealMikeHolland

100 of the most expensive homes in Brighton and Hove Our exclusive analysis of property prices in Brighton and Hove received a remarkable reception. Based on more than 19,000 transactions since 2009, last week’s analysis shed new light on the £1 billion-a-year market. Today we reveal details about 100 of the costliest homes in the city. Our research highlights the most expensive addresses for every kind of property: detached, semi-detached, terrace, and flats or apartments. They serve to expose the deep divide in property wealthy. To give one example: since 2009, the aggregate value of
the most expensive 10% of properties to change hands is £1,236,381, 083; the value of the cheapest 10% of properties is £219,733,979. In other words, the cheapest 10% of homes are worth less than a fifth of the most expensive 10%. To put today’s figures in context, we reported last week the aggregate value of all 973 properties sold in the second quarter of this year was £290.4 million, compared with the record of £390.5 million set in July-September 2010, when there were 1,359 transactions. Other headline findings were (figures for April-June, Q2 2013): • The average price of a
detached was £471,668 significantly below its peak of £520,351 in the second quarter of last year. • The average price of a semidetached was £345,942 - close to its peak of £347,367 in the third quarter of last year. • The average price of a terrace was £349,552 - beating the previous record of £339,523 set in the third quarter of last year. • The average price of a flat or apartment was £214,512 second-highest behind £218,462 in the third quarter of last year.

Saltdean Lido campaigners on course to take over lease Frank le Duc The Saltdean Lido campaigners look likely to become the preferred bidders to take over the lease to the art deco swimming pool and building. The campaigners, led by Rebecca Crook, have formed a community interest company (CIC), Saltdean Lido CIC. Brighton and Hove City Council said that it wanted the company to be given provisional preferred bidder status to run the complex. The council’s economic development and culture committee is being asked to agree the proposal, which would then have to be signed off by the council’s policy and resources committee. Ms Crook, chair of the CIC, said: “Of course, after a three-and-a-half year campaign we are overjoyed. “However, this is now the start of even more hard work but we are ready for the challenge ahead. “The building and swimming pool needs millions of pounds spent on it. “From the outside, it might look ok but there are serious structural issues which have left particularly the front part of the building in a very poor condition.
“Nevertheless we are very confident in our ability to transform Saltdean Lido into a commercially viable and financially selfsufficient operation for the benefit of local people and visitors alike.” Peter Crowley, managing director of Wave Leisure Trust, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with Saltdean Lido CIC to reopen this iconic facility for the benefit of the local community. “We look forward to bringing our expertise in inspiring active lifestyles to work with the CIC team in making Saltdean Lido a successful and unique attraction again.” Paul Zara, director of Conran and Partners Architects, who have supported the campaign to save Saltdean Lido since 2010, said: “It’s the right decision, of course. “The team behind this bid will turn the lido into a national

destination but most importantly it is the heart of Saltdean and a muchloved friend. “I can’t wait to swim there again but there’s a lot of work to do first. This is the beginning of a new life for Saltdean Lido.” The Saltdean Lido CIC is a community-based organisation with almost 1,000 members. It aims to run the lido site and its facilities on behalf of the community, reinvesting profits to ensure its long-term use by future generations.
Brighton Museum wants help from the public with stories, photos and mementoes relating to the First World War. It is gathering material for an exhibition to commemorate the centenary next year of the start of the Great War. Curators are holding a dropin day at the museum in Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton, on Saturday, September 21, from 1pm to 4pm. They hope that people will come along and share their stories, family histories, pictures and keepsakes that relate to the war and Brighton and Hove. Anyone unable to attend the drop-in session, can contact the
museum team on 01273 292845. Councillor Geoffrey Bowden, chairman of Brighton and Hove City Council’s economic development and culture committee, said: “So many people have a family connection with the war and we are interested in hearing their family stories, which have perhaps been passed on by parents, grandparents or great grandparents. “Personal stories highlighting the impact of the Great War on individuals will help bring history to life for younger generations and we hope people will come along to these sessions to share their family stories, photos or mementoes.”
Back to school blues? So the kids are back at school ….meaning summer is now officially over. Of course at least we have actually had a summer this year due to the gorgeous weather (once it eventually arrived). September is often a very busy time not just for teachers but for Family Lawyers; many couples split up after the summer holidays. They struggle through believing a holiday abroad or some family time will get their relationship back on track but it doesn’t, the relationship is over and for some it took spending more time together than usual to realise this sad fact. Some couples with very young children have been holding on until they start school and are now facing the prospect taking the first steps to formally ending their relationship. So when couples come and see me at this time of year they may look tanned and happy but they are anxious and stressed out; disappointment is written all over them, they hoped that a long hot summer might be just what was needed to feel happy again but unfortunately it wasn’t. In my work as a Collaborative Family Lawyer and Mediator I work with lots of separating parents; when they come to me at this time of
year they are feeling vulnerable. They feel the summer is behind them, the relationship has failed and all that is ahead of them is winter and a horrible prospect of breaking up the family home. I try and get them to see that whilst they are full of disappointment and worry the separation process doesn’t have to get ugly’ it can be handled with sensitivity and hopefully the pain and anger is then minimised. Parents who chose the Collaborative process are on the right course to do this .I help them communicate with their ex… not as an ex but as the other important person in their child’s life. I also refer them to the Parenting after Parting Course run by the Iris Centre in Brighton. The course covers seven aspects that are crucial for parents to try to get right. • When and how do you tell the children you are separating? • How and when to separate? • Your principles and objectives as parents • What arrangements for the children will you make? • What is your family’s story?
Issues and changes that affect the children now and possibly in the future (medical treatment, schools etc) • And of course the financial implications of everything they have agreed to. In my experience when parents have a childfocused agreement helps them reach a sensible and workable agreement and in time move on to a new, more business like relationship with each other. September can be a melancholy time as summer fades into Autumn, but it is also a time for new beginning… not just for children starting school or going off to University but for parents too.

In the first of a series of three constituency profiles, we use data from the 2011 census to paint a picture today of the seven wards that comprise Brighton Pavilion. Six of the wards are represented by three councillors; Regency is the excpetion, with two. Of the 20 councillors pictured, 12 are Green, five are Conservative, two are Labour and Co-operative, and one is independent. The data reveals a fascinating array of differences between wards - whether in the same city, or in the same constituency.
For example, Regency has the densest population in Brighton Pavilion, with 167 people per hectare - second only to Brunswick and Adelaide, the densest in the city, with 221 per hectare. St Peter’s and North Laine has the biggest number of households in the city, compared with South Portslade, which has the fewest (3,903). The residents of Hanover and Elm Grove have the lowest average age (32), compared with Rottingdean Coastal (with a mean age of 44). Do you recognise yourself – and your neighbours - in the data?

A Week in the City Compiled by
MP wants greater right to buy
Could sex clinics be put out to tender?
Another Brighton fracking arrest
City shopping coping better than most
An MP wants council tenants to be given more help to buy their homes. Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown, says locals should be given greater discounts and has asked the government to make more support available because of the high house prices in the city.
Sexual health clinics could be handed over to the private sector. Brighton and Hove City Council took over responsibility for the centres from the NHS earlier this year and the authority is considering putting the contract for services out to tender. Unions have expressed their concern.
A 45-year-old from Brighton was among six people arrested at the anti-fracking protest in Balcombe earlier this week taking the number of demonstrators arrested to more than 100. The man was arrested on suspicion of intimidation and resisting arrest.
Research into the number of empty shops in towns and cities across the country shows Brighton is doing better than the national average. The people behind the study into hundreds of town centres warned the city was still home to a considerable number of empty units.
Churchill Square helps city buck vacant-shop trend
Cash boost for blind veterans
A charity that supports blind ex-servicemen has been given £1 million from a pot funded by fines paid to the government by banks. Blind Veterans UK will spend the windfall revamping its Ovingdean headquarters. Crime
Thief returns stolen bike
Lido rescue bid latest
A bike thief returned to the scene of the crime to give back a stolen cycle after reading a note left by the owner. Not only did the thief return the bike, but the culprit also left a note saying sorry and a new lock.
A community-run group has moved one step closer to taking over Saltdean Lido. The Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company is almost certain to be named as the city council’s preferred bidder - meaning the iconic Art Deco outside pool could be saved.
Brighton and Hove Albion
Mixed fortunes for Albion’s Egyptian star Albion defender Adam El Abd made his first competitive start for Egypt. The Brighton-born defender scored an early own-goal as his country beat Guinea 4-2 in a World Cup qualifier. The popular centre back did though play an important part in one of his side’s four goals.
City’s NHS gets winter cash
Brighton boasts overnight consultants
Health services in Brighton have been given an extra £2.3 million to help the city through the winter. The cash comes from the Government and local sites like the Royal Sussex County and other services will now bid for a share of the winter warchest.
The Accident & Emergency unit at the Royal Sussex County Hospital is one of just five in the entire country to employ a consultant to work overnight. The hospital has recently recruited more consultants in a bid to increase the number of people who can be treated.
Non-league day attendance boost
Gardens set for new look
Football fans flocked to watch local non-league teams as part of a nationwide celebration of the semi-professional game. A healthy crowd saw Whitehawk FC win 1-0, while almost 800 watched nearby Lewes surrender a 2-0 lead in injury to draw 2-2.
Valley Gardens is set for a major revamp that will include a pop-up café and a sound installation. The city council wants to spruce up the area round St Peter’s Church and proposals will see a new cycle lane added.

Withdean junior tennis team succeeds in Sussex The Withdean Tennis Academy 9&U team celebrated success this summer by winning Division 1 of the Sussex Aegon Team Tennis League. The winning team comprised of Jack Allen, Elliot Atkins, Cameron Blackburn, Ethan Haddock and Ross Leachman. They were coached by Tessa Bass and Giles Brook at the Withdean Sports Complex – operated by Freedom Leisure on behalf of Brighton & Hove Council - as part of the leisure centre’s junior tennis programme. The Aegon Team Tennis League is a singles and doubles -based competition that sees junior players compete in regular league matches against similar standard players in a competitive team environment. The league runs from April to June during which time players can develop their skills, meet a range of opponents and build momentum as the season progresses. “At junior level, we want our boys and girls to play as many matches as possible as they learn a tremendous amount from facing a variety of opponents,” says Giles Brook, Freedom Leisure head
tennis coach at Withdean Sports Complex. “At Withdean Tennis Academy we include plenty of match practice alongside the coaching sessions so that players can compete with confidence in county-level tournaments in their age group,” says Giles.

Shop vacancy rate bette Frank le Duc The shop vacancy rate in Brighton and Hove is better than the national average - even though nearly 250 stores are empty. About one in seven shops were vacant across the country during the first half of the year, according to research by the Local Data Company (LDC). LDC director Matthew Hopkinson said: “Brighton and Hove is performing relatively well as it is below the (national) average by about 2 per cent. But, that said, it still means there are nearly 250 vacant units in the retail core.” He added that the vacancy rate for Churchill Square, the city’s leading shopping destination, had almost doubled in the 12 months to June. Churchill Square, however, said that the picture had improved
significantly in recent months and the outlook was even better, with Topshop moving in from its current Western Road premises. Topshop has signed a new lease on a 22,000sq ft store at Churchill Square and is scheduled to open the shop next summer. The new Topshop store is part of a broader revamp, which will see new double-height shop fronts on the Western Road façade. Among the shops that will have two-storey shop fronts are Bhs and the Dorothy Perkins and Burtons store, as well as Topshop and Topman. Tina Dallorzo, centre director for Churchill Square, said: “We
are delighted to be welcoming Topshop to Churchill Square. “It is an iconic retail brand and its arrival will strengthen what is already a great mix of retailers at Churchill Square.” Among the new arrivals in the past few months are the fashion retailer Bershka and the interiors store Zara Home. Both are part of the Spanish Inditex Group. Other stores to open include the Fossil Store and Boost Juice Bars. Other retailers have increased the size of their floorspace, including the clothes shop River Island, Clarkes Shoes, and the watch and jewellery specialist TH Baker. All relocated to larger stores within the centre while the fashion brand Miss Selfridge underwent an extensive refit, creating a new “concept” store inspired by its flagship branch at Oxford Circus. Local Data Company’s research on vacancy rates is included in

er than national average Shopped Out, its latest report. The research analyses more than 1,900 town centres, shopping centres and retail parks which were visited in the first half of this year. The report said that while the shop vacancy rate in the top 650 town centres had remained stable at just above 14 per cent, it masked significant variations in different places. Mr Hopkinson said: “This report clearly shows that while the rise of empty shops has stalled, it still remains stubbornly high for many towns up and down the country. “Since August 2010 the national average has been above 14 per cent, with a significant number being ‘long-term sick’ with little or no prospect of reoccupation as shops. “In the top 650 town centres alone these empty shops equate to 23 Sheffield city centres being devoid of any trading shops or leisure businesses. “To add to this problem a further 403 shop units have been added to town centre shop stocks
in the first half of 2013 (plus 0.3 per cent). “Demolition or alternative use is the only option for the vast majority of these ‘surplus to requirement’ shops. “To that end restaurants, bars, cafés and even betting shops have come to the rescue as the growth of leisure takes off in our town centres. “Subject to planning, they will be able to absorb some but not all of this excess stock, which is forecast to increase.” “Leisure uses have grown at three times the rate of shops in the first half of this year. This is an increase of over 500 units in the first half of 2013 (plus 0.9 per cent). “Both the Portas and Grimsey high street reviews highlight the impact that vacant shops are having on communities up and down the country and call for government to take action in a wide number of areas. “What is common to all is that we have too many shops in this country and many are not fit for a
role within the new omni-channel/ digital environment. “As the LDC data shows this problem is felt more acutely north of the Watford Gap where economic challenges are greater than in the south along with the greatest disparity in business occupation costs seen between rental decline and business rate increases. “Town centres are a key component of maintaining a social and vibrant ‘human’ community so they cannot be left to rot with over 22,000 empty shops for the last five years. “Now is the time for action and not reaction. Click and collect shows how complimentary bricks and clicks are and how important it is for retailers to maintain a physical relationship with their customers, which can only be achieved through shops.” Frank le Duc is founder and editor of Brighton and Hove News, the leading daily online news service for Brighton and Hove.

Alan Cumming in stand out performance Any Day Now (15) Running time: 97 mins Director: Travis Fine Starring: Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Isaac Leyva
Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a powerfully emotional, uncompromising drama with a pair of terrific performances from Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt. What’s it all about? Co-written and directed by Travis Fine, Any Day Now is inspired by her Down’s Syndrome son Marco a true story and set in 1979 West (Isaac Leyva), Rudy decides to Hollywood, where Rudy Donatello look after him and asks Paul to (Alan Cumming) has a nightclub help him get custody. act as a lip-synching drag artist. Though still closeted at work, When he meets closeted, recently Paul nonetheless invites Rudy and divorced lawyer Paul Fliger (Garret Marco to live with him, in order Dillahunt) after catching his eye in to help with their legal status for the audience for his act, the pair foster custody. Soon the trio are a begin a tentative relationship, but de facto family, with Marco living when Rudy’s junkie neighbour a happy life at a new school, but (Jamie Anne Allman) abandons 1 12/9/13 when Paul is outed after Love Brighton-0410:Layout 13:18 Page 1 a work
party, the authorities step in and try to take Marco away from them. The Good Cumming and Dillahunt are both terrific character actors, so it’s a treat to see them taking centre stage for once; despite their differing personalities, their relationship is entirely convincing and genuinely moving. There’s also superb support from newcomer
Isaac Leyva, whose bond with Cumming’s character is powerfully emotional, as well as reliable turns from Frances Fisher (as the judge in their custody case), Chris Mulkey (as Paul’s shifty boss) and Mindy Sterling as Marco’s kind hearted teacher Miss Mills. The script is excellent, managing to steer clear of TV-movie-of-the-week sentimentality and exploring themes and issues that are powerfully resonant. To that end, the 1970s setting allows for an extra layer of outrage because the prejudice is so blatant (Rudy and Paul are told in court that, despite the obvious love they have for Marco and the positive influence they have had on his life, at the
end of the day, he will still grow up believing their relationship is “normal”), but that same sequence also serves as a harsh reminder that such bigotry still exists today, albeit in a less open form. The Great The film is crisply shot by cinematographer Rachel Morrison (which actually makes a nice change from the usual 1970s soft focus pastiche style) and there’s a superb soundtrack, including a terrific song sung by Cummings himself (his lip-synching act is also sensational). In addition, Fine also orchestrates a number of highly memorable and affecting scenes, such as an awkward party thrown by Mulkey’s character, and the film deserves a huge amount of credit for its uncompromising ending. Worth seeing? This is a superbly made drama that packs a powerful emotional punch, thanks to a strong script and terrific performances from Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt. Highly recommended.

Loco for Coconut Oil
Sales of coconut oil are up 200% year on year at Waitrose, proving that coconut is the food trend that’s here to stay.

But is seems our obesession with coconut is more than just a fad, as sales of coconut water are also up 165% at Waitrose. Figures from Waitrose.com show that searches for coconut recipes and information have increased by 164% over the last year, while views of the product page for the Groovy Food Organic Virgin Coconut Oil have increased by 175% since 2012.

Paul Hollywood’s Pies And Puds BBC Daytime has announced that it has commissioned a new 20part cookery series with popular television baker Paul Hollywood – Paul Hollywood’s Pies And Puds. Each of the 45-minute shows will see Paul cook three mouthwatering recipes. He’ll produce a signature pie and a signature pudding but in between, he’ll create something a little bit different, inspired by a guest expert. Paul and his guest expert will cook the dish together, often showing off their unique technical skills such as sugar spinning or fondant icing. The series will also see Paul scour the length and breadth of the UK, as he searches for traditional local recipes and delves into the stories and heritage behind them. The people he meets on his travels will also join Paul in the kitchen, to watch him bake their recipe and, of course, taste the results. Paul Hollywood said: “This programme is about our affection for straightforward, honest food. Pies and puddings really sum up the strengths of our culinary culture - there’s something about a
Delia and Waitrose join forces to help the nation learn to cook online In an exciting new move, Waitrose will again be working alongside Delia Smith. The grocer will bring Delia's online cookery school, which Delia launched earlier this year on her own website, to Waitrose TV for the first time. The Delia Online Cookery School with Waitrose will offer an encyclopaedic library of lessons and techniques videos, completely free of charge for all users. Launching on Waitrose TV* from 5th September, the content will build over the course of two years and will sit on a new ‘Cookery School' tab on Waitrose TV as well as on deliaonline.com. Delia’s tutorials will be the hero of the channel, with her section of the site offering 40 close-up lessons and the same number of technique videos. It will be accompanied with content from Waitrose chefs and other food experts to create an extensive food hub, teaching everything from cookery basics to advanced techniques - and also supported by more than 150 Delia recipes on Waitrose.com. Waitrose Marketing Director Rupert Thomas: “We have a long and successful history of working
with Delia and we’re thrilled to be joining forces again on the Delia Online Cookery School with Waitrose, which we believe will be the definitive online tool for cookery tuition. “Inspiration and expertise are absolutely key to what we offer, and because of this our online content is now an integral part of our customer communications. “This wealth of new content from Delia will complement the wide range of expertise already on Waitrose TV from contributors including Heston Blumenthal, Alan Titchmarsh and Phillip Schofield and will continue to build our online presence as the destination for foodies or anyone looking to develop their skills.” The comprehensive library will also enable Waitrose to link to tutorials from across the Waitrose website and social media channels - for example a quick skill lesson within a recipe on Waitrose.com. As well as Waitrose TV, content will also be available on the Waitrose YouTube channel (youtube.com/ Waitrose), Pinterest (pinterest. com/waitrose) and through the retailer’s Facebook page (Facebook.com/Waitrose).
home-baked pie or simple steamed pud that warms the cockles of your heart like nothing else. It’s good food simply made and above all delicious." Damien Kavanagh, Head of BBC Daytime, said: “Paul is much loved by BBC audiences and his new series will be a real treat for Daytime viewers, providing them not only with a baking masterclass
but also the fascinating stories behind some unique recipes. Sweet or savoury, the series will feature something for everyone.” Nick Bullen, Director of Programmes, Spun Gold, said: “Paul’s new show will pay tribute to the nation’s favourite comfort foods. We hope viewers will take inspiration from Paul’s travels and recipes to recreate some of these
tempting puddings and pies in their own homes.” Paul Hollywood’s Pies And Puds (20x45-minutes) was commissioned for BBC Daytime by Gerard Melling. It is being produced by Spun Gold. The executive producer is Chris Kelly. The series producer is Dunk Barnes. The series will air on BBC One later this year.
Shop-bought baby foods ‘don’t meet infants’ weaning needs’ COMMERCIAL BABY FOODS provide little extra nutritional goodness over breast milk, a new study says. The research, which is published online in Archives of Disease in Childhood, shows that UK commercial baby foods don’t meet infants’ dietary weaning needs, because they are predominantly sweet foods. They are also promoted for infants from the age of four months, which is an age when babies should still be on an exclusive breast (or formula) milk diet, the researchers say. They looked at what sort of products are available in the UK for weaning infants from a predominantly milk-based diet to a family food-based diet. Recommendations say that weaning foods should not be started before the age of six months, and that they should be introduced gradually. The researches analysed the nutritional content of infant foods intended for weaning made by four major UK manufacturers, including ready-made soft, wet foods, powdered meals to be reconstituted with water,
breakfast cereals, and finger foods such as rusks. They found that: Most (79 per cent) of the 462 products assessed were ready made spoonable foods, almost half of which (44 per cent; 201) were aimed at infants from the age of four months onwards. Analysis of the 410 spoonable foods revealed that their energy content (282 kiloJoules per 100grams) was almost identical to that of breast milk (283kJ/100g). Their protein content was only 40 per cent higher than formula milk. Products containing meat had the highest iron content, but this was no higher than formula milk, and not much higher than products that did not contain meat. Dry finger foods had a much higher energy and nutrient density overall, but they were also particularly high in sugar. Around two thirds (65 per cent) of the stand-alone products were sweet foods. Babies have an innate preference for sweet foods, which might explain why
sweet ingredients feature so prominently in commercial products, said the authors. But they added that repeated exposure to foods during infancy “promotes acceptance and preferences”, and fruit sugars rather than refined sugars won’t make a difference to tooth decay risk. They also compared the nutritional content of shopbought products with typical family-made foods. They found that 50g of a spoonable family food would probably supply the same amount of energy and protein as 100g of a similar commercial product. The researchers said that weaning foods are used to increase the energy content of the diet and provide richer sources of nutrients like iron – but the most commonly-used commercial foods in the study supply no more energy than breast or formula milk. Despite this, they are promoted at an age when they will replace breast/formula milk, which is all that babies under six months really need.

Fashion and lifestyle Love Actually voted perfect first date movie
Love Actually has been hailed as the perfect first date movie – while The Exorcist was named as the worst, according to new research. The 2003 classic, which starred Hugh Grant, Colin Firth and Keira Knightley, beat other popular romcoms such as Notting Hill to claim the title. By contrast, the horrific, bloodspattered Exorcist film was hailed as a complete no-no on a date, with the heart-breaking Schindler’s List coming second. The TalkTalk study also revealed getting the choice of movie right on a first date is more likely to lead to a successful night out. The research also found it takes just two of weeks, or until approximately the third date, before daters ditch the expensive restaurants in favour of a night in front of the television. TalkTalk‘s Commercial Director Tristia Harrison said: ”With couples enjoying their first date night in front of the TV just a couple of weeks into their relationship, our research shows just how important it is to pick the right film for a romantic evening.” Other films to make the top ten best list were Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, Bridget Jones Diary and Titanic.
Two thirds of Brits feel ‘starved of affection’
Two thirds of Brits feel starved of affection, according to new research. A study of 2,000 people aged 25-54 in relationships shows many feel their ‘work-hard, playhard’ lifestyle leaves little time for intimacy. As many as six out of ten couples said they wished they spent more time kissing, cuddling
and being affectionate with their partner. It also emerged most couples are lucky to have sex more than four times a month, and many kiss or cuddle just once or twice a day. Researchers also found one third of couples can sometimes go days without touching each other – in fact, one in 20 never kiss, and a further 7% don’t ever cuddle. Susan Quilliam, relationship psychologist for Durex Embrace, which commissioned the study, said: ”We live such busy, tiring lives that we end up putting intimacy right to the bottom of the agenda. ”But it’s a serious mistake. A shocking two-thirds of us lack physical touch and emotional connection – and if that need isn’t
met, our relationships suffer. ”We all know, deep down, that we need more touch; we need to talk about our feelings and the things that are important to us. ”But instead we keep our distance, physically and emotionally. We need to reverse that trend and start connecting on every level; otherwise relationships nationwide will continue to fade and fail.” The study also found one in four couples admit they are more likely to Facebook, text or email their partner than speak face-toface. And a further 22% say that when they are at home, they’ll often sit at opposite ends of the sofa rather than cuddle up. Rather than expressing emotion and affection for a partner through touch, 14% of couples would prefer to put nice comments on Facebook, while 11% would post a pleasant tweet about them. When asked why they spend so little time showing each other affection, 55% claim to be exhausted after a busy day at work. And a further 47% of people often feel that their partner isn’t interested in hearing about their day, or what they have been up to. Consequently, two thirds of these are less likely to want to be affectionate with a partner who is disinterested or preoccupied with
their own interests. Unsurprisingly, 32% of people feel their current relationship is a bit stagnant and ‘stuck in a rut’. Just under half of those polled wish their partner could be a bit more emotional and loving with them, particularly as many people rate kissing, cuddling and intimacy as fundamental parts of a happy relationship. The study shows that when couples do spend quality time together and talk, they are more likely to discuss practical things like the housework and the school run than their feelings about each other. Discussions about the children, other family member and friends are also more prominent and frequent than conversations about the future or feelings about what has happened that day. But with a resounding 83% of people voting talking as the most important part of a relationship, it stands to reason that if they don’t talk, they don’t go on to have body contact. Susan Quilliam added: ”These findings show clearly that we need to connect more deeply with our partners on a daily basis. ”The emotional intimacy that comes from talking together, sharing emotions, and having great sex is what really connects you.”
Horoscopes from Kimi
13th September - 19th September Aries 21 March – 20 April There are a number of decisions that have to be made over the next few days which will affect your wellbeing as well as those close to you. You are renowned for your decisiveness, which is great; just make sure you listen to all points of view! Money matters bring extra pressure and challenges but also potentially large rewards! Taurus 21 April – 21 May If you have been managing a team or group you may be feeling a little peeved at the lack of results. Be careful how you deal with this. Go in heavy and you could be seen as an interfering pedant. Softly, Softly. Someone very attractive is heading your way that could be quite an important character in your life! Gemini 22 May – 21 June When you are on a roll there is just no stopping you is there? You seem to be full of bright, innovative and
adventurous ideas this week. And your natural charm sees that you have no difficulty inspiring others. But don’t neglect your domestic duties this week, or your relationships, someone is in need of a little of your TLC. Cancer 22 June – 22 July Your organizational skills are much needed. You will be organizing, sorting, gathering information and giving rational analysis. Right up your street. Even matters of the heart are subject to your rational and logical approach. You may however find yourself blindsided this week either by a romantic interest not expressed before or someone from the past. Could be two in one! Leo 23 July – 22 Aug Trying to keep all those plates spinning at the same time is a daunting task but you seem to thrive on it. For you are nothing if not resourceful! You are thinking about design, redecoration, but this has lots to do with nest building as well as creating the right
ambience. You are thinking home making this week! Virgo 23 Aug – 23 Sept Finances, career plans, mortgages are all featured heavily this week. Don’t despair it is not all dusty ledgers and tomes much of it has to do with new and exciting financial projects you may be involved in. Boosting the finances of a community project or group may bring you into contact with a new love interest, if single! Libra 24 Sept – 23 Oct You have had been mulling over plans and ideas for some time now and think this would be a good time to share them. A word of caution, sometimes it is better not to put all your cards on the table at once. After all you don’t want to scare people away! Travel, long distance, is likely. Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov You are articulate and persuasive and
when on form there is no stopping you. You can charm the birds from the trees and that is exactly what you will be doing over the next few weeks and it starts here. Romance and travel are forecast, so perhaps it is a romantic break or a chance meeting on a business trip. Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec Communication is what you do well and at the moment there seems to be an abundance of opportunities to communicate on the work front. Networking and building partnerships and business relationships now will bring long terms gains. On the domestic front tread carefully when discussing long term plans as others may feel at best left out at worst left behind Capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan You are entering a period of high energy. At work you’re in great demand and your opinion is often sought and revered. At long last you are getting
the recognition you deserve. You will need to take time out to recharge your batteries and focus on the spiritual, loving and domestic though if you are to keep apace. Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb Never the one to do things by halves you are thinking or planning big at the moment. You may be thinking of a total career change, business merger or even relocation. Whatever it is this couldn’t be a better week to get your plans kick started. Just don’t neglect all those practical issues and people that still need your attention! Pisces 20 Feb – 20 March You will need to show a lot of empathy, understanding and diplomacy this week if you are to keep relationships either at work or at home on an even keel. You need to show that you are prepared to listen if you want to avoid conflict. On the romantic front things are looking particularly hot. Abroad perhaps?!

All-new Mazda3 hatchbacks complete 9,300 mile marathon test drive The convention-defying ‘Mazda Route3 – Hiroshima to Frankfurt Challenger Tour 2013’ is complete. After an epic journey of 9,300 miles, the convoy of all-new Mazda3 hatchbacks crossed the finish line today at Mazda’s European R&D Centre in Oberursel, just outside Frankfurt, right on schedule. Featuring a KODO exterior design as innovative as their SKYACTIV technology, all the new compacts withstood the expedition fully intact, demonstrating their robust and dependable Mazda genealogy founded on outstanding build quality. Now, some of the Mazda3 tour cars will be exhibited at the Frankfurt Motor Show which opens on 10 September. The overland portion of the Mazda Route3 tour began on 3 August, after the cars had been shipped from Japan to Vladivostok. Starting out from Russia’s Far East, they covered two continents, five countries, nine time zones and some 30 cities. Crewed by journalists, media and Mazda dealers, the Mazda3 teams took in a variety of sights, including Lake Baikal, the Altai
Mountains and the Kungur Ice Caves. They stood on the border between Asia and Europe, and were escorted on more than one occasion by dozens of Mazdas driven by local fans. During the final leg, they visited four European capitals – Moscow, Minsk, Warsaw and Berlin. Everywhere the all-new Mazda3s went, they attracted waves, smiles, friendly curiosity and sometimes even applause. Hidden potholes couldn’t stop them. Football-sized rocks couldn’t stop them. Nor could overturned trucks, herds of livestock and roadworks one was forced to drive through rather than around. The only thing that could delay two of the Challenger Tour Mazda3s was bureaucracy at the Belarusian border. So if crumbling highways were the primary concern particularly during the earlier legs of the tour, there was no lack of suspense during the later stages, either. Now waiting for the go-ahead to cross the border into Poland and the EU, the two Mazda3 stragglers are expected to resume their journey soon. “What an adventure! If I had
Cost and quality are biggest concerns for drivers choosing car insurance Cost is the key driver for most Brits when choosing a car insurance policy, while just over half are influenced by the quality of cover being offered. The research into factors influencing motorists' choice of car insurance policies, commissioned by Gocompare. com, revealed that in addition to the price of the policy, drivers were concerned about the level of cover on offer and the insurer's reputation, particularly in the relation to paying out for claims: Rank - Reason for choosing car insurance provider - % 1 Cost 75 2 Quality of cover 51 3 Insurer's reputation 33 4 I trust the insurer to pay out if I need to claim 32 5 The ability to pay in monthly instalments 28 6 If I get a good deal (e.g. 11 months cover for the price of 12, second vehicle discount, free gift) 21 7 Recommended by friends and family 12 8 Specialist provider (older/ younger/ women drivers,
sports/classic cars) 5 9 Recommended by an insurance broker 4 10 I like their advertising 2 Scott Kelly, head of car insurance at Gocompare. com, commented: "For many drivers insurance represents a significant part of the cost of running a car, so it is no surprise that cost is an important consideration in choosing an insurance policy. However, we would suggest drivers not pick a policy based on price alone, but to also think about the level of cover they need. A number of insurers include additional features, such as a courtesy car, breakdown cover or legal assistance as standard, but some insurers offer these as optional extras. So before signing up to a policy you need to think about the level of cover you need and whether you could buy it cheaper elsewhere. For example, breakdown cover is frequently offered as an additional extra with car insurance, but may be cheaper bought as a separate, standalone policy."
to single out the one aspect of the Tour that was most impressive, I’d say the interaction – of the people along the way, with the Mazda Route3 participants, with the support team, and of course with the cars,” comments Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director, Mazda UK, who joined British Mazda dealers and media from the UK when they participated in the first three legs of the epic tour from
Vladivostok to Ulan-Ude. “The all-new Mazda3 hatchback test cars, powered by a 120ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engine mated to a six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission, were such a joy to drive and at the same time so tough and so reliable, even when conditions were worse than anyone expected. They took everything Eurasia could throw at them,” adds Thomson.
Four of the Mazda3s will go on display at the Frankfurt Show – one on Mazda’s stand (B12 in Hall 9) and three more at an outdoor area of the exhibition grounds dedicated to the tour. Mazda fans can re-visit the convoy’s marathon tour progress on a dedicated website at mazda. co.uk/mazdaroute3, which features a trip diary with images and videos.
TomTom Traffic now alerts drivers to slow down in traffic jams TomTom released the latest version of TomTom Traffic, the most precise, real-time traffic information available. TomTom Traffic now includes an innovative ‘Jam Ahead Warning’ feature, which pinpoints the precise location of a traffic jam and sends an early-warning alert so that drivers can safely reduce their speed. Available automatically to all existing users, TomTom Traffic also includes new features that further improve routing accuracy. TomTom Traffic now detects road closures and road works automatically on more roads. A new ‘Predictive Flow Feed’ can more accurately predict congestion on a driver’s route and further improve the fastest route recommendation and ETA. “We continue to make TomTom Traffic even more powerful and precise with every new release,” said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of TomTom Traffic. “This latest version of TomTom Traffic is now so accurate it can pinpoint the precise location of a traffic jam. “The new Jam Ahead Warning feature shows drivers in advance exactly where a traffic jam is located and crucially alerts them to slow down if they are travelling too fast. By giving drivers advanced knowledge about the road up ahead, we aim
to make journeys safer and more predictable.” The risk of accidents from sudden braking when drivers approach the back of a slow-moving traffic jam is well recognised. TomTom uses its unrivalled ability to pinpoint the back of the traffic queue and the speed of the traffic to provide an extra alert if the driver is travelling too fast towards traffic congestion. In a survey released by TomTom this week of over 1,500 British motorists, 44% say they’ve had to brake sharply because of a sudden traffic jam ahead. Nearly one in four (22%) claim the car behind has driven into the back of their vehicle when they’ve had to brake suddenly because of traffic. With slamming on the brakes causing 7% of road accidents in the UK, it is estimated that driving too close to the car in front costs the economy just over £1 billion a year. Whilst 58% of British drivers claim they always leave the required stopping distance between their car and the one in front, only 44% knew the correct distance at 60 mph (240 feet) – with 56% either underestimating it or admitting they didn’t know. Awareness of the stopping distance at 30 mph (75 feet) was even
worse, with only 35% getting it right and 65% putting themselves and others at risk by under-estimating it or not knowing. Despite these findings, a staggering 90% think they have the necessary skills to be able to judge speed and distance accurately whilst driving. Sixty per cent of UK drivers said they would be either interested or very interested in a product that gave them an early alert about unexpected traffic jams to enable them to slow down in time. The automatic detection of road closures is now extended and includes major secondary roads as well as highways. This improves the accuracy of routing and helps road users save time and fuel from unexpected diversions. The latest version of TomTom Traffic accurately detects road works on highways, enabling drivers to adapt their journeys to avoid delays or adjust their journey times. For the first time, navigation application providers, automotive partners and government departments will be able to predict congestion ahead and forecast the anticipated speed that will be driven through busy routes. This automatically improves the fastest route calculation and ETA.

He may have only played 14 times in the league for the Albion, but Owusu galvanised the struggling Seagulls when he arrived at the tail end of the season with the Albion staring relegation in the face. The big forward scored a goal every other game and was an integral part in the Seagulls’ survival that season. His trademark ‘Raise the Roof’ celebration became a hit on the terraces as Owusu fired the Albion to safety.

Andrew Crofts made his first start for Wales in more than a year and racked up 58 minutes
Richard Morris Albion’s international footballers enjoyed a week of mixed emotions – with own goals, yellow cards and spots on the subs bench. Adam El Abd scored an own goal and was criticised for his part in another as Egypt overcame Guinea 4:2 in a World Cup qualifier, on what was the defender’s first competitive start for the Pharaohs. Meanwhile, Gordon Greer was an unused substitute during Scotland’s 2:1 win in Macedonia. Fellow Scot, Liam Bridcutt, missed out altogether due to his recent hernia troubles while Andrew Crofts made his first start for Wales in more than a year during his country’s disappointing 3:0 home defeat to Serbia. The midfielder, who has enjoyed an impressive start to the Seagulls’ campaign, managed 58 minutes before being subbed off on a yellow card.
However, it was not just the men’s team which celebrate recent international recognition. Sophie Perry saw her early season form for club’s ladies team rewarded with a call-up to the Irish squad ahead of a two vital World Cup qualifying games later this month. The defender, who joined the Albion from Chelsea, will be hoping to make the Ireland starting line-up at home to Slovakia and then away to Croatia as the team from the Emerald Isle look to build on an encouraging, if ultimately unsuccessful, European Championship qualifying campaign. Speaking earlier this week, 14-cap Perry told the Brighton and Hove Independent: “We are going into these games full of confidence. We are in the same qualifying group as Germany, who will obviously be favourites, but we are targeting second place which would see us make a play off.”

Big match preview
Tough game ahead as Albion take on the division favourites
Former England star Wayne Bridge could miss out on an early-season meeting with his one-time Albion teammates after suffering from a knee injury. The left back, who impressed all-comers during his seasonlong spell at The Amex last term, sat out Reading’s friendly match with Oman last weekend and earlier this week Royals boss Nigel Adkins confirmed Bridge was still undergoing treatment. Adkins added that Bridge would almost certainly not feature in all of Reading’s next three games – a hectic schedule which starts with Brighton Sunday and ends with a trip to Derby County the following Saturday, with a Wednesday night meet with Leeds United sandwiched in the middle. With or without Bridge, Reading will likely represent the Albion’s toughest test so far after being labelled the favourites to take the division by most pundits preseason. Like the Seagulls though, their host’s campaign has got off to a mixed start, with Adkins’ charges sitting just one point better off than Brighton after a damaging defeat away to Blackpool and stalemates with Bolton and Watford. Adam Le Fondre will pose
the main threat to the Seagulls custodian Tomasz Kuszczak’s clean sheet, having scored 43 per cent of his team’s league goals so far this season. At the opposite end Alex Pearce and Sean Morrison forging a central defensive partnership every bit as impressive as Albion’s pairing of Gordon Greer and Matthew Upson. Brighton could be buoyed by the return to action of Ashley Barnes, if the international break provided sufficient time for the flexible frontman’s hip problem to heal. Liam Bridcutt was expected to return to training this week but is unlikely to be ready to take his place in the match day squad. Andrea Orlandi however should be pushing for a starting spot despite playing through the pain barrier during the Albion’s improved second half showing against Millwall last time out. The talented midfielder led the Seagulls in terms of assists last season and, together with Kazenga Lua Lua, helped turn the tide

“I knew before the season it’s a tough league, all the results are very close but I am really happy how we are playing and how the players are understanding what I want of them and I think we are in the correct way. “My job is to improve the players we have and this is what we are trying to do, improve each player as an individual.
Albion fans will be hoping injury rules Bridge out of Sunday’s game
against a dogged Lions team and earn Albion a welcome point. Leo Ulloa will once again lead the line after the Seagulls’ hierarchy rejected a deadline day bid from Crystal Palace for the Argentinian’s services, although fans will be hoping Tony Bloom et al will have added a loan striker to the Brighton roster by the time the team take to the field on Sunday. Oscar will look for an improved performance against Reading after the Albion failed to turn large swathes of possession into three points against Millwall. The Seagulls have the division’s fifth highest average possession level (55.9 per cent) but nine rival clubs have found the net more often so far this season.

Agustien arrived in preseason as the latest in a line of Seagulls recruited from Swansea City.
