End of a brutal era as Gadaffi is gunned down

A dead Sirte! COLONEL Muammar Gaddafi was shot dead yesterday (Thursday) in his home town of Sirte, according to Libya’s interim Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril.

“We have been waiting for this moment for a long time,” a jubilant Jibril told a news conference in the capital city of Tripoli. Footage emerged purportedly showing anti-Gaddafi fighters surrounding the body of the ousted Libyan leader, before it was loaded on to the back of a vehicle. He was toppled in August after 42 years in power, and the International Criminal Court had been seeking his arrest. But there were conflicting reports about his demise. National Transitional Council spokesman Abdullah Berrassali told Sky News: “He was shot in both legs and in the head. It looks like Gaddafi and his close aides tried to flee.” Earlier, though, National Transitional Council (NTC) military commander Abdel Majid said he had been injured in a gunfight as his convoy attempted to flee Sirte. Another commander, AbdelBasit Haroun, said Gaddafi had been killed in a Nato airstrike. To add to the confusion, an anti-Gaddafi fighter, who claimed he witnessed Gaddafi’s capture, said he was shot in the stomach as he hid with his bodyguards. “We catch him and we shot him - somebody shot him by gun, 9mm,” said the witness. Then, pointing to another man next to him, he added: “This man hit Muammar Gaddafi with his shoes.” Libyan TV channels showed footage of two large drainage tunnels in which other reports suggested he had been killed. Spray painted above the pipe openings were the words “contemptible Gaddafi” and “God is greatest”. There was a corpse, apparently a pro-Gaddafi fighter, lying on the ground nearby. Anti-Gaddafi fighters celebrated on the streets as reports of the former leader’s fate emerged. “We did it! We did it!” chanted fighters in Sirte as they exchanged hugs and handshakes. Sky reporter Kitty Logan, said: “The mood here in Tripoli is of absolute euphoria. This is the moment they have been waiting for. This is what their revolution was about - and if the rumours are true, this is closure for the Libyan people.” Arabic news channels reported Colonel Gaddafi’s son, Mutassim, had also been captured

alive in Sirte yesterday. Britain’s Prime Minister, David Cameron said in a brief statement: “Today is a day to remember Gaddafi’s victims, from Lockerbie to Yvonne Fletcher, and also victims of the IRA, killed by Libyan semtex.” He added: “I am proud of the role Britain has played in helping Libyans to have a chance of building themselves a strong and democratic future.” Sky’s chief political correspondent Jon Craig, who has kept a close eye on the Libyan situation, summed it all up, saying: “Cameron’s gamble in joining French President Nicolas Sarkozy to spearhead the West’s war against Colonel Gaddafi, and back the Libyan rebels, now looks like a political masterstroke. “His Downing Street statement confirming Gaddafi’s death was brief, measured and modest, with no gloating whatsoever. “But the PM’s Middle East strategy did not always look so clever and well-judged. Back in February, as people all over the Arab world were rising up against their leaders, Mr Cameron was criticised for taking a group of arms manufacturers on a trip to the Gulf States. “In Libya, protesters demonstrating against the Gaddafi regime were met with a bloody crackdown by the security forces. “Gaddafi was vowing to fight to his ‘last drop of blood’ and calling on his supporters to ‘fill the streets’ and ‘attack them in their lairs’. “So the PM cut short that ill-fated Gulf trip, returned to London and attempted to persuade Barack Obama to back him in a liberation of the Libyan people. “But he found the US President unenthusiastic, dithering and uncooperative. So instead, Mr Cameron formed a powerful and ultimately hugely-successful alliance with President Sarkozy. “And last month Mr Cameron and the French President were rewarded with a rapturous welcome when they visited Libya together. “Initially, not everyone was persuaded that British intervention in Libya was the right course. But Mr Cameron stood firm and was unwavering in pursuing his policy of a no-fly zone and NATO airstrikes. “President Obama can claim no credit for the Libyan success, while Mr Cameron and Mr Sarkozy can rightly do so for a job well done.”

Britain’s most wanted Now in its fifth year, the Operation Captura campaign issues a new appeal for criminals believed to be hiding in Spain and the Canary Islands.

Previous campaigns organised by the UK crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) have proved very successful with a number of ‘most wanted’ subjects being apprehended here in Tenerife.

Half of the appeals are new, while the other five subjects have been previously publicised through Operation Captura but are being re-issued as all five are wanted for murder. The successful multi-agency campaign identifies serious criminals on the run wanted by UK law enforcement agencies for crimes committed in the UK. Since Operation Captura launched in October 2006, 46 out of 60 criminals have been ar-

rested, with many now behind bars. Crimestoppers and SOCA work closely with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office staff in Madrid and with British and Spanish law enforcement agencies. The campaign highlights appeals for information on criminals who have European arrest warrants issued against them. Information given to Crimestoppers can help locate these criminals so that arrests can be carried out by the Spanish police.

Lord Ashcroft, KCMG, Founder and Chair of Crimestoppers, said: “Operation Captura is a unique partnership that has seen huge success in bringing some of the UK’s most wanted fugitives to justice. “A small number of suspected criminals see Spain as a safe place to evade law enforcement but, thanks to the confidence the UK, Spanish and ex-pat communities have in Crimestoppers, these individuals will not be able

to escape justice for much longer.” For those people calling from Spain there is a special freephone Spanish 900 555 111 telephone number which will be answered in the UK by Crimestoppers’ call agents and a translation service is available upon request. People can also pass on information anonymously via the Crimestoppers number 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

Police weed out drugs gang in Adeje THE Guardia Civil enjoyed an early-morning haul on Tuesday when they nabbed a gang unloading more than a ton of hash in a small cove at Guía de Isora, on the border with Adeje. Several units of both forces were involved in the operation, on the isolated beach at the mouth of the barranco de Erques. The smugglers were taken into custody, and an added bonus for the police was that they also nicked the would-be drug recipients, according to Spanish daily newspaper El Dia. The officers were well briefed because they pounced on the gang as soon as they began unloading their illicit cargo from a Zodiac-type boat.

RESIDENTS of La Restinga, evacuated after last week’s triple underwater volcanic eruptions off the south coast of El Hierro, still can’t return to their homes permanently.

Juan Miguel Padrón, Mayor of the El Pinar district, says the undersea volcano “is almost dead” and that the villagers can visit them during the day only. But some have said they never want to live there again because of all the trauma on the smallest of the Canary Islands, especially as there is always the possibly of an eruption on land in that area in the future. Twice, they have been given the allclear to reclaim their dwellings, subject to air-quality tests, only for scientists to express concern about the sulphurfilled atmosphere – which smells foul - being a possible danger to them.

But even though the tests have proved there are no toxic gases present, the volcano boffins want to make absolutely certain by carrying out further tests. Jesus Perez, the local Security and Emergency Councillor, has stressed that the air is virtually clean in La Restinga and is no danger to the public. But he added: “Scientists will shortly decide whether the residents return to their homes or not.” Meanwhile, El Hierro’s council has pledged there will be financial assistance for those who have been evacuated, and has applied for further help from the Canary Islands Government and the Spanish Government, as well as the EU. The National Research Council, responsible for Volcanic Monitoring, and the National Geographic Institute (IGN),

have confirmed that the eruption has expelled magma, because samples “typical” in the Canary Islands have been collected. But although the tremor has been reduced and is stabilising, they said yesterday (Thursday) that the magma was still coming out. The three undersea eruptions have had a telling effect on the local economy. Many fish have been killed by the gases, and 40 fishing boats have been unable to return to their moorings. Traders have obviously felt the pinch as well, because of the ban imposed on any people going there until now. The Mayor, Juan Miguel Padrón, fears La Restinga may never be the same again. “People may be led to believe the area is contaminated and that sort of thing,” he said. “And this situation has hurt the fishermen, everyone.”

French tourists swarm in, and there’s more to come THE French can’t wait to take a holiday in Tenerife! That was the message from last week’s meeting in Paris between a delegation led by Carlos Alonso, Tenerife Tourism chief and French tour operators and airlines.

And Alonso’s sole aim at the meeting was to increase routes to Tenerife from France, which has registered a significant increase of tourists to the Island in recent years. The Tourism Chief Executive told the meeting that Tenerife operated 11 direct connections to airports in France and stressed: “These meetings allow us to see first-hand the tourist sector’s prospects for next season. “They also enable us to open

new lines of collaboration to increase routes, frequencies and air capacity of the Tenerife flights now linking with France.” Tenerife delegate Miguel Angel Santos, together with 16 tourist companies from the Island, spoke of the many tourist attractions here. And Santos outlined the Tenerife Tourism Strategy for the French market in 2012, which is focused primarily on travel agents being able to improve awareness of the Island and of the new airlines. Last year, 110,903 French tourists went to Tenerife, up 11.4% on the previous year’s figures. Statistics analysed by the Department of Tenerife Tourism Research also noted a further growth in the first eight months

of this year, which suggested an increase of 54% on an overall figure of 118,697 French visitors. It means that the French market has grown from a 2.3% share to 3.4% in the first eight months of the year, which is hugely encouraging for Tenerife Tourism. The French generally prefer to stay in hotels - 65.8% in the South - and visitors often travel as a couple or family, and are particularly attracted by the natural landscape of Tenerife. In general, French tourists are more active than the average visitor, with 66.5% practising some activities during their stay, especially hiking, or visiting the main attractions such as Teide, Los Gigantes, Santa Cruz, La Laguna and Garachico.

No-show Mo can’t take gloss off our mighty Magma show TEENAGER Jodie Williams flew the flag for Britain in the absence of Mo Farah, who should have been the star of the European Athletics Awards Night on Saturday.

The glittering event was held at the Magma Centre in Playa de Las Americas but England’s Farah, reigning world 5,000m champion and European 10,000m recordholder as well, preferred to stay with his family at his “training” base in Portland, Oregon, in the United States. The best of athletes throughout Europe were honoured at the star-studded ceremony, which highlighted the annual European Athletics Convention. But Farah said he was too busy training to attend. But training for what? That was the big question because the international season has now finished. Instead, he made a ‘video’ appearance to acknowledge the prestigious award, which was collected by 2012 London Olympics supremo Sebastian Coe. Patrick Leuyckx, who runs the athletics club RCLA (Racing Club Las Americas), was a guest of the Belgian Athletics Federation at the event. The Belgian coach said Farah’s absence upset a number of people at the Magma Centre. “He was obviously the star of the show and a lot of us were hoping to meet him,” said Leuyckx. “If he’d been worried about missing the odd training session, he would have been more than welcome at our track, which is of international standard and less than five minutes from the Mare Nostrum Resort, where he would have been staying.” Yet there was no deny-

The 28-year-old Londoner is the first male long-distance runner to win it since its inception in 1993. And following his World Championship 5000m success in Daegu, South Korea, and being pipped at the post in the 10,000m thriller, he was a clear winner. “I am delighted to be selected as European Athlete of the Year,” he said in the pre-recorded video. “I would like to thank European Athletics and everyone who voted for me. It’s a pity that I could not be there tonight.” But chirpy 18-year-old Williams was there, and she took centre stage alongside outstanding German shot-putter David Storl at the Magma to collect their Rising Stars accolade. Together with Russia’s female Athlete of the Year, Mariya Savinova, they were presented with their trophies by European Athletics President Hansjorg Wirz. Jodie, the stylish British sprint prodigy from Welwyn Garden City, whose exploits in the Estonian capital of Tallinn during the European Athletics Junior Championships played a big role in her European Athletics Rising Star reward, was ecstatic. “When my Dad told me that I had won this prestigious award, I just could not believe it,” she told the distinguished audience.

21 October - 27 October 2011

Before the ceremony, Jodie told Canarian Weekly: “When I discovered I was up for the award, I canvassed like mad for votes, and it paid off. I’ve had a three-month break from athletics to unwind and take in all that’s happened to me this season. “But I’m back I training now and my goal is obviously next year’s Olympics. I’ve already run the qualifying time, but I think I’ll have to achieve that again to make sure of a place in the GB team.” Jodie added: “London’s only up the road from my Hertfordshire home and it would mean so much to me, my family and all the people involved.” Her world-beating potential shone brightest of all in July when she won the 100m and 200m at the European Junior Championships in Estonia. Middle-distance runner Savinova, only the fourth Russian woman to be honoured as the European Athlete of the Year, was thrilled to be in such distinguished company. “It was a remarkable year on the track and this award has made it one of the most special years of my career,” she said. For all the trophies and accolades, however, it was also a huge feather in Tenerife’s cap for being able to attract one of the year’s great sporting get-togethers, What a pity, then, that Mo Farah wasn’t around to put the icing on our Island’s cake!

On the top of the table is the area of Santiago del Teide, where people who have come from outside account for 75 percent of its population. The Cabildo of Tenerife has released these statistics as a database, a new service aimed at entrepreneurs, researchers, consultants and the general public. The database service provided by the island government can make available socio-economic variables and statistical data relating to various

sectors. The 2001-2010 statistics collected last year and each of the years since 2001, contain a total of 184 tables and 79 graphs. It also allows a quick observation of the events of the decade with data from Tenerife, the Canary Islands and Spain. Councillor for Economic Development, Trade and Employment, Efraín Medina, said that “In a world which is increasingly interconnected and interdependent, entrepreneurship requires information on multiple variables. The preparation of timely and relevant statistical information on demography, macro-economic, socio-

economic sectors, is an arduous task.” The facility aims to provide access to statistical information relevant to decision making with statistics generated on data supplied by other sources such as the Canarian Institute of Statistics and the National Statistics Institute (INE). Among the information that the data bank offers includes socio-economic statistics related to geographic, population, employment and unemployment, agriculture, energy, construction, trade, transport, tourism, finance, public sector and other items.

13 arrested in a series of dawn raids across Tenerife

A BRITISH national was among 13 people arrested last Tuesday on suspicion of moneylaundering activities in the south of Tenerife.

The group are said to have laundered money working for the Camorra Mafia organisation in the Naples area of Italy. Eleven of the gang detained are Italians, including a lawyer from Adeje, DG, who has also been arrested, plus one Moroccan. A major joint police operation, code-named Operation Pozzaro, involved the Guardia Civil, National Police and Italian authorities, and is the culmination of a long investigation into the Mafia on the island. The focal point of the operation were the Italian Nuvoletta and the Polverino clans, and it led to more than 50 homes and businesses being searched by an army of police. Searches were witnessed in the Mareverde complex, Torviscas, Marina Palace, Playa Paraiso and garages in Balcon de Atlan-

tico. Reports state that Police uncovered 150,000 euros at one residence, and they have embargoed several assets including bank accounts. The entire operation was ordered by the Central Instruction Court No 6 of the Spanish National Court in Madrid. There, the prosecutor’s office against corruption and organised crime revealed that Spanish police collaboration with their Naples colleagues provided vital information for the raids. According to the prosecutor’s statement, the Nuvoletta clan have been investing in Spain since the 1990s, and latterly in Arona and Adeje especially. They are said to have a substantial interest in the Marina Palace complex in Playa Paraiso, Adeje, and the clan’s leader, a man named by the Spanish press as GF, has a network of companies registered mainly in Tenerife. Sales of luxury cars and boats are also thought to have been set up to launder

money, plus real estate and entertainment venues. Police are certain the money, filtered mainly through building projects, was eventually channelled through the Mafia’s Tenerife companies, which are also being investigated. The Spanish National Police said earlier this year that the Italian Mafia were leading the traffic in cocaine in Spain, with 24 clans involved. And over the past decade, 34 Mafia leaders have been captured in Spain. They were attracted by the climate, and the cultural and linguistic similarities to their own home. After Italy, said police sources, most Mafia chiefs have found refuge on mainland Spain. Germany is reckoned to be the country for illicit moneylaundering for the Italian Mafias, and serves as a pick-up point for the sale of arms to Eastern Europe. But Spain is definitely the operations base for bringing drugs into Europe from Latin America,” said a source.

TIBU’s Eastern promise guarantees it is a major attraction with clubbers

Gunman escapes with 200 euros from a bank A MAN who robbed a Tenerife bank at gunpoint on Wednesday in Las Galletas is believed to be the same person responsible for other recent robberies in the South.

The gunman, masked by a hat and dark glasses, walked into the Banesto Bank, near the sports centre, and threatened staff before making off with 200 euros. The area was cordoned off, but, despite a thorough search by police and

the Guardia Civil, he avoided arrest. The previous holdup happened last month at a travel shop in the Vulcano Commercial centre, Playa de Las Americas, when a 58-yearold British man was wounded in the arm.

Employers’ union boss wants

redundancy pay to be slashed JOAN ROSELL, head of the Spanish employers’ union CEOE, wants whoever wins next month’s General Election to cut redundancy pay-outs from 20 working days a year to 12. Union officials want these compensation payments to be reduced from 45 days to 20 a year if they relate to unfair dismissal. They also ask that eight days of that 20day period should be paid into the official “wage guarantee” fund, with payments lasting just one year.

Rosell added: “If companies need to sack workers, they should not be faced with the current impediments. “When it is easier for businessmen to sack workers, the possibilities of them taking on new workers are greater.” He also wants the new Government to slash the 43 varieties of work contracts currently in place to just six, with parttime and training contracts being more flexible.

Vincent Tabak broke down in tears as he began giving evidence in his trial and said he had contemplated suicide after Miss Yeates’ body was found. He also tearfully apologised to her parents as he explained how he dumped her body in a snowcovered lane. During cross-examination, Tabak admitted he had been “calculating, dishonest and manipulative” after Miss Yeates’ death. At the start of proceedings at Bristol Crown Court, Tabak spoke slowly and clearly with a strong accent as he confirmed he was a Dutch national. He first answered questions about his background - where he grew up, what he studied at university in Holland and when he arrived in the UK. He broke down in tears when asked about his girlfriend, who he met on an internet dating, website but regained his composure to give details about the night of December 17, 2010. Tabak told the court he was invited in to Miss Yeates’ flat after he walked past her window on his way to do some shopping at Asda. After going inside, he said they spoke about their partners being away but he soon “got the impression that she wanted to kiss me”. He told the court she made a “flirty” comment as she talked about her cat. “I recall that we talked about (how) my girlfriend was away at the Christmas party and I was feeling a little bit lonely and bored,” Tabak said. “She made a comment that Greg was also away and that she (was) also bored at home. “We talked about the cat, the cat which had come into our flat, and she made flirty comments like the cat... it would go places it shouldn’t go, a bit like me.” The Dutchman said he then decided to make a pass at her and leaned in to kiss his neighbour. “She started to scream quite loudly,” Tabak said. “I panicked and put one of my hands over her mouth. I said something like, I’m sorry.” He said when he took his hand away she continued to scream, so he again covered her mouth with one hand and put his other hand on her neck.

Tabak told the court he was “panicking” and just wanted to stop her screaming. After strangling her for less than a minute “she went limp, she fell to the floor”, he said. “I still can’t understand what happened.” Explaining his actions after Miss Yeates’ death, Tabak said he was “not thinking straight” when he moved her body to his flat, put her in a bicycle cover and carried her to the boot of his car. When asked why he went shopping at Asda with Miss Yeates’ body in his car, he said: “I panicked. I just picked the original plan and went there.” During this time, he sent a text message to his girlfriend Tanja Morson telling her that he was “bored” and could not wait to pick her up from the airport. When asked why he sent the text, he replied: “I was in a state of shock, panic, not believing what had happened. That I was responsible for her death. “I’m so sorry. I wanted to reach out to her (Tanja) to get support, hear her voice, anything.” After leaving Asda, Tabak said he set off for Bristol Airport but stopped at Longwood Lane where “I did something horrendous, I decided to leave her body there”. He told the jury how he had tried to lift Miss Yeates’ body over a wall a couple of times without success, so he left her on the verge and used dead leaves to cover her. The defendant then tearfully apologised to Miss Yeates’ parents, saying: “I’m so sorry for doing that. “I put Joanna’s parents through a week of hell. I still can’t believe I did that.” When cross-examined by prosecution barrister Nigel Lickley QC, Tabak agreed he had been “calculating, dishonest and manipulative” in trying to cover his tracks. However, the Dutchman denied he intended to kill Miss Yeates when pressed by the barrister. Mr Lickley said: “You made no attempt to resuscitate her. You knew she was dead because that’s what you intended to do?” Tabak replied: “Definitely, definitely not.” Miss Yeates’ parents David and Teresa Yeates, brother Chris and her boyfriend Greg Reardon were in court to hear Tabak’s evidence. Tabak has admitted manslaughter but denies murdering Miss Yeates. The trial continues.

Hacked off Jude saying no to press privacy law Jude Law says he has learnt how to protect himself against media intrusion and that despite his well publicised battle with the press, he does not think a privacy law is needed.

The actor has launched a legal claim against News International over allegations of phone hacking in a civil test case. However, while promoting his new film Contagion in which he plays a journalist, Law told Sky News he has accepted that as a public figure, intrusion from the press is a reality. “If you’re in the public eye you have a very active double-sided relationship with the media. “I’m not necessarily happy with that but you have to accept it, otherwise you’re railing against something that perhaps isn’t going to shift.” The actor thinks a change in the law would be difficult to implement and says there is always a way round reforms. “I’m a great believer in freedom of speech and I’m a great believer in the right to investigative journalism used positively. I think the answer is to be mindful of those who are not necessarily treating their responsibilities wisely.” He is also positive about the future and that things may change. “I think the situation is on the move with the inquiries going on at the moment, once a resolution is made with those inquiries we’ll be in a better situation as to how to proceed in the future.” Contagion is a thriller about a worldwide epidemic which breaks out and he plays a journalist who blogs about the situation. Law’s charactor, Alan Krumwiede, has a pathological distrust of all things official. He writes about the outbreak, going from a small online following to

It’s a girl for Bruni but President misses birth Carla Bruni, the wife of the French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has given birth to a baby girl.

But her husband reportedly missed the birth as he attended talks on the euorzone crisis in Germany. It is the first child to be born to a serving French president. The baby, more than a fortnight late, is to be named Dahlia, according to speculation on Twitter. Mr Sarkozy had visited his wife at the private La Muette clinic in Paris hours ahead of the birth before boarding a plane to Frankfurt for meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He flew back later. Europe 1 radio said the birth “went well” for the 43-yearold mother, a singer and former supermodel. There was

no official confirmation of the birth. Presidential officials reiterated earlier that no birth announcement would be forthcoming. Mr Sarkozy will hope the event can bring him a boost in popularity as his current poll rating is low. But Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy has said she will not make photographs of the child public. The couple married in February 2009, within a year of Mr Sarkozy taking office and less than four months after his divorce from second wife Cecilia Ciganer-Albeniz. The Italian-born first lady has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship and the president has three sons from his two previous marriages - and became a grandfather in January.

The Irish stars have racked up 26 top ten hits and 14 number ones, but say they are now looking forward to “new ventures”. Fans will have the chance to see them perform for the final time on the already-announced Greatest Hits Tour, which kicks off in May next year. The foursome - Nicky Byrne, 33, Kian Egan, 31, Mark Feehily, 31, and Shane Filan, 32 - have sold more than 44 million records in their time together. They were managed for many years by Louis Walsh and survived the departure of one of their founding member Bryan McFadden. In a statement they said: “The decision is entirely amicable and

after spending all of our adult life together so far, we want to have a well-earned break and look at new ventures. “We see the greatest hits collection and the farewell tour as the perfect way to celebrate our incredible career along with our fans. We are really looking forward to getting out on the tour and seeing our fans one last time.” The statement continued: “Over the years Westlife has become so much more to us than just a band. Westlife are a family. “We would like to thank our fans who have been with us on this amazing journey and are part of our family too. “We never imagined when we started out in 1998 that 14 years later we would still be recording, touring and having hits together. It has been a dream come true for all of us.”

Heather Mills is sued by hairdresser Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills is being sued by a Los Angeles hairdresser who claims she failed to pay him as much as £50,000 as she pursued stardom in Hollywood. David Miramontes, who works under the name David Paul, said in the lawsuit that he worked for Mills from 2005 until 2008. He said she repeatedly failed to pay him claiming she was penniless until her divorce from the former Beatle was finalised. Mills and McCartney ended their acrimonious marriage in 2008 and in December of that year she began avoiding Miramontes.

He prepared an invoice for £50,000 but it has yet to be paid. The hairdresser charged up to £3,000 per cut for an out-of-office appointment, according to the lawsuit. He is seeking payment plus punitive damages, court costs and lawyer fees. Mills and McCartney were married in 2002 in a lavish ceremony in Ireland, but four years later they separated, blaming intrusion into their private lives. In their divorce settlement, Mills was awarded £24.3m by a judge. In 2007, the former model, 43, performed on TV’s Dancing With The Stars despite having had her left leg amputated below her knee following a 1993 traffic accident.

Tax blunder: six million

www.canarianweekly.com

are in line for rebates Six million people are set to receive tax rebates of around £300 each.

But there is bad news for one million others who will be told they have underpaid - to the tune of £600. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has carried out an annual check to make sure the amount of tax and National Insurance deducted by employers matches its records. One million people will receive letters in the next few months notifying them that they have paid too little tax. The average amount owed is expected to be between £500 and £600, an HMRC spokesman said. He explained that those affected will be able to pay the amount back in stages, if necessary, by

either having their tax code adjusted or coming to an agreement with the Inland Revenue. The process to credit the six million, who paid too much tax in the 2007/8 year, or earlier, will take longer but HMRC hopes to have it completed by December 2012. Last year the Inland Revenue brought in a new IT system which made it easier to spot discrepancies and therefore more cases where people have over or underpaid came to light. HMRC Tax Mistakes 2007-08: HMRC overpaid tax credits to the value of £1bn. Mar 09: 4.5m people overpaid £1.6bn and 1.5m underpaid £400m of tax. Mar 09: HMRC had £4.4bn of

tax-credit overpayments to recover. Oct 11: 6m people could receive tax rebates of £300. Oct 11: 1m people underpaid around £600 of tax. The HMRC spokesman said: “Money that is owed going back many years is now going to be automatically paid back as we get the tax system up to scratch. “We are getting cases that were left un-reconciled up to date as quickly as possible. Anyone owed money will be paid back with interest without the need to contact us. “The fact is there will always be some cases at the end of every tax year that require an under or overpayment to balance but these cases will reduce as the new system beds in.”

Dale Farm: ‘Muncher’ moves in Police have arrested the last two chained activists at an illegal traveller site in Essex as a heavy cutting machine, dubbed ‘the muncher’, is brought in to help evict remaining residents.

The two ‘locked on’ protesters were unshackled and driven away by police officers. An Essex Police spokesman said: “The men and women have mainly been arrested for obstructing bailiffs and while a number have refused to provide details of their name and address, the majority live outside Essex. “Only one man lives in Basildon and he is not a resident at Dale Farm.” In total, 36 people have now been arrested at the illegal Dale Farm residence near Basildon, mainly for obstructing police. One woman has been charged by police after she failed to remove a mask. At least 30 people remain in police custody and will be questioned by officers during the day. Enforcement workers used the hydraulic cutter to dismantle the crude scaffold structure at the entrance and other obstructions. Officials are enforcing an eviction order of traveller residents from the site as it does not have council approval. A number of the travellers remain on site in caravans and chalets. Officials say they are fully in control of the site after hundreds of police officers, bailiffs and security officers forced their way onto the land on Wednesday. However some activists are believed to have infiltrated the site and may attempt further chained protests. Although most protest activists were cleared from the Dale Farm site on Wednesday some stayed as temperatures plunged overnight. Travellers have warned they will chain themselves inside caravans on the illegal 48-plot camp to thwart their eviction today. Grattan Puxon, of the Gypsy

Page 12

Council, told Sky News: “We will have people locked on in at least one of the caravans today. Clearing the site today was slowed as police tried to release activists who had their hands linked and encased in concrete inside a beer barrel. Removing the protesters was complicated as the two were divided by a large steel fence. Officials shielded the area to prevent TV cameras filming workers as they cut the activists free. One of the activists, a squatter who gave his name only as Aaron, had earlier told Sky News: “This will block the machinery that will inevitably come down here.” The unemployed charity worker added: “We will stay and make it very difficult.” A police cordon of riot-equipped officers remains in place inside and outside the site. Basildon Council has said it is fully committed to clearing the travellers who have flouted planning laws by building on what is technically green belt land. The site used to be an illegal scrap yard. One half is now a legal site but most of the development on the other side is illegal. The travellers argue they have nowhere else to go and have complained of police brutality during the start of the eviction process. Mr Paxon said: “We don’t want it to go like what happened yesterday with Tasers used on people - that was totally unnecessary.” Some travellers slept off site last night but dozens remain. Resident and mother-of-four Mary Sheridan said: “I have no-

where to go but I was scared by the violence and am worried for my children. “As soon as the gate opens I want to leave.” Others remain resolute and say they will chain themselves to their homes as bailiffs move in. A meeting on Tuesday between the travellers and the council to discuss the clearance ended with the residents’ delegation walking out. Mary Ann, a 16-year-old resident, told Sky News: “I didn’t think it was going to be this frightening, it is really turning my stomach.” She argued that because of the fragmented nature of the site, the council stands to gain very little. “They are not getting rid of the pikeys as they call us on the radio shows... they are getting rid of about 10 families altogether,” she said. Basildon Council has said it is upholding an important principle on behalf of all law abiding taxpayers. Council leader Tony Ball told Sky News: “The law has been broken. Every day this continues the law is being broken. “The expectation on public bodies is to enforce the law.” But the Gypsy Council’s Mr Puxon warned that the expensive legal action will ultimately be futile as residents move from the illegal part to the legal half of the site. “This shows how completely stupid it all is, spending millions and turning it into a rubbish tip,” he said.

Debt collectors banned from social networks Debt collectors have been banned from chasing people through Facebook and Twitter after it was branded “unfair and improper” by a consumer watchdog.

The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) said people were caused “stress and embarrassment” by having their money problems highlighted on the internet. Debt collectors were criticised for making public what should be private conversations by posting reminders on sites which anyone could see. As a result, the watchdog has updated its Debt Collection Guidance to reflect new methods of communication. The new guidance says debtors should not suffer

from creditors “posting messages on social networking sites in a way that might potentially reveal that an identifiable person is being pursued for the repayment of a debt”. David Fisher, the OFT’s director of consumer credit, said: “In the present economic climate, with many people in financial difficulties, it is crucial they are treated fairly by companies recovering their debts.” But the watchdog pointed out that it was not a widespread trend and that it has only received a “handful” of complaints. Debt collectors have also been criticised for contacting people at unreasonable times or inappropriate locations, for example when they are a patient in hospital.

Queen visits Oz flower show amid curtsy row The Queen has enjoyed her first full day of official engagements in Australia despite a row about the prime minister’s decision not to curtsy.

After a meeting with Australia’s governor general, Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh took a boat ride on Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin. They received a warm reception as they attended their first public event of their 11-day tour of the country. In brilliant sunshine, they moored up at the site of Floriade billed as the southern hemisphere’s biggest flower show. While the event ended on Sunday, organisers resurrected the show to allow the monarch and Prince Phillip to see hundreds of thousands of flowers that have been viewed by more than 400,000 visitors this year. Andrew Forster, the event’s head gardener who took the Queen around the attraction, was impressed by the work of his staff. He said: “It looks fabulous, the team of expert gardeners have gone through the event and cleaned it up and presented it how a Queen would

like to see it.” While the Queen enjoyed the flowers, the controversy over Julia Gillard’s not curtsying rumbled on. The PM chose a slight bow and handshake when she met Her Majesty on Wednesday. Matthew Archer, from the Australian Monarchists League, said Ms Gillard’s choice not to curtsy was rude and impolite, according to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph. “I understand she thinks we should ditch the monarchy but it’s just a sign of courtesy,” he said. “It actually would be a sign of respect.” Curtsying to the Queen is not mandatory anymore, according to royal protocol, although many women do choose to greet the Queen that way. Ms Gillard defended her actions saying she was advised the decision to curtsy or not was a personal choice. “The protocol advice to us was you either curtsy or bow your head, you should do what you’re comfortable with and that’s what I was comfortable with,” she said. The Queen, accompanied by husband Prince Phillip, is on her 16th royal visit to Australia.

Mr Shapps will tell a seminar in London he wants to spark a national debate on longer-term fixed mortgages as a “normal and sensible choice”. There are currently no mortgages with guaranteed lifelong interest rates, and longer term deals often require hefty deposits. Mr Shapps believes greater use of “portable” deals, where borrowers are able to move house and keep their existing mortgage, could make deals more appealing. “Cap and collar” arrangements where the interest rate on a loan can only move within limits and borrowers are not liable to sudden repayment increases - will also be touted as positive changes. Mr Shapps is expected to say: “In today’s uncertain world, people want to know where they stand. “Yet, when it comes to buying a home, there are no mortgages available for them where they can fix their payments for a long time - the longest fixed-rate mortgage for many is five years. “Longer term mortgages - possibly as long as 30 years - could help families on tight budgets know exactly where they stand when they’re buying a home, by giving them greater certainty over how much they will be paying for their home in years to come. “While they won’t be

right for everyone, lenders should start to look at the case for 30-year mortgages and how we can move to a more stable housing market where first-time buyers can get their first foothold on the property ladder at a cost they know they can afford.” Mr Shapps believes new funding can be brought into the market because of the increased certainty longer-term mortgages can bring. He will argue such changes could open up new finance to give first-time buyers and those without much equity in their homes a better chance of getting a foot on the ladder. He will tell the Building Societies Association’s Annual Mortgage Seminar the Government wants to see stability in the housing market and with interest rates in the long term. But the minister will also say consumers have deep-rooted expectations that they can and should be able to shop around for a better rate, and do this frequently during the term of their mortgage. Paul Broadhead, head of mortgage

policy for the Building Societies Association, responded to the announcement, saying: “We welcome the prospect of an inclusive debate on any measures which will help lenders lend and consumers borrow. “We also endorse the Government’s aim for a stable and, we presume, active housing market. “Longer-term fixed-rate mortgages have been offered in the past but with limited consumer demand. Ten-year rates are currently available and lenders do respond with new products where demand exists.” He went on to warn against ‘one-size fits all’ approaches, saying: “The challenge with fixed-rate mortgages is always the balance between price and flexibility for the consumer. “The more flexible a fixed rate is, the more expensive it is for lenders to fund with the knock-on higher cost to consumers. We are keen to hear more about the minister’s ideas on new sources of long-term market funding.”

It won’t cost a fortune either, it’s only 6.50 euros for a minimum of 2 hours and that includes your boot hire. There’s loads of free parking and you can skate from 11am – 11pm every day except Sunday when they close at 10pm. Did you know that skating is as good as jogging or cycling for burning calories?

It was good to see so many people supporting the Costa del Silencio bar’s event for such an important hospice, and that was reflected in the total raised. Oh yes, and Fluffy the barman excelled himself by appearing in a dazzling pink, Sunday-best outfit - dress, wig, the lot! And with one event still to go, Our Place’s Sharon and Steve are confident the final total will top the 2,000-euro mark. Sharon and Steve say a big

A feast of fun and good news for Santiago Lions SANTIAGO Del Teide Lions Club celebrated their President´s Night with a magnificent Buffet Dinner and Cabaret evening at El Marques, in Puerto Santiago.

Invited guests were Deputy Mayor Inocencio Doble and his wife, Remedios, and Antonio Espinosa, Legal Advisor to the Council, and his wife, Alexandra. The evening was a huge success, with 89 guests in attendance. Entertainment was provided by artist and showman Gavin Nicholas, who had many of the audience in stitches, with music to get everyone dancing from superb saxophonist, guitarist

and singer Stu McCoy. It was a perfect evening for departing President Steve Gilbert to hand the reins to incoming President Ken Ward. Apart from the traditional welcome to all guests, Steve Gilbert was delighted to award the coveted “Lion of the Year” plaque to Terry Hill for his unstinting support and dedication to the work performed by the Lions. During the evening, brief speeches were made by Steve Gilbert, Ken Ward, Inocencio Doble and John Brookhouse, from Las Rosas. All were thanked for providing such fantastic support, and Inocencio Doble was pleased to announce that after the 20th November

General Election in Spain, the Ayuntamiento will be giving the Lions Club use of a local in Puerto Santiago. This will be set up as a store where people can donate unwanted items, which can then be sold on to generate more income to assist many local families experiencing difficulties in these harsh, economic times. During the last year, the Santiago Del Teide Lions Club raised 5,600 euros for their Food Voucher Scheme. It is hoped that with this new source of generating income, they will be able to support many more local people in need. Deputy Mayor Inocencio Doble addressed everyone in

Spanish to give his personal thanks for all the help we were able to offer. His speech was ably translated by Jamie Gilbert, much to the relief of the majority of the audience. All guests agreed that the evening represented tremendous value at only 30 euros per head, and many are now eager to attend the next event, which is the Charter Night, to be held early next year. Ana Martin, Resort Manager for El Marques, was warmly thanked for the excellent service performed by her staff in making the evening such a success and, again, demonstrated that the venue provides a superb setting for this type of occasion.

Mighty Murtagh is a hole-in-one king Going Golfing Holidays celebrated its second hole in one this year but, on this occasion on Golf Costa Adeje.

Holidaymaker Paul Murtagh paid his 10 euros entrance fee on the 16th hole at Golf Costa Adeje and was lucky enough to achieve a hole in one- He wins a 7 night stay next year

in Costa Adeje Gran Hotel. The competition is sponsored by The Tenerife Golf Shop and Going Golfing Holidays. The funds raised from the competition are donated to a local charity. Paul is a regular visitor, plays often whilst here on holiday, with a handicap of 14. It’s actually his third hole in one he has achieved whilst playing golf.

Please support our Poppy Day Appeal THIS year’s Tenerife Poppy Day appeal by the Royal British Legion will be launched tomorrow (Saturday) at Flick’s Bar on Amarilla Bay, Costa del Silencio.

It begins at 7pm and includes a barbecue, raffle and entertainment - and there’s an open invite for everyone to join in. The distribution of poppies and collection tins began yesterday (Thursday) and will be gathered in after Remembrance Sunday, which is on 13th November. The poppies have been circulated here by the British Legion for 13 years, and there has always been a fine response from the public. Last year, the British Legion collected a whopping 9,683.90 euros in Tenerife

South, and Poppy Appeal Organiser Kelly is hoping that figure will be surpassed. All monies collected goes to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, which helps towards the group’s welfare work, not only in the UK but all over the world, including Tenerife. The Legion, which celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, prides itself on all the help it has given to needy ex-service personnel and their dependents throughout those years. Kelly says: “Wars from all over the world have seen so many, of so many ages, injured, and this is where we come in. Please give generously and wear your poppy with pride.” If you would like a box of poppies and a collection tin, contact Kelly on 922 786 777, or Branch Chairman Don on 922 739 486.

Re-live the TEAs 2011!! The Tenerife Entertainment awards took place last month, and, a great day was had by all. Now you can relive the event as the official DVD is now on sale. If you would like your souvenir copy of the TEA’s 2011 then call MyVideoi on 922 724 669 or 618 474 975 to get yours now. It’s 3 hours of non stop footage on 2 discs, priced at only 15 euros.

Who will give me a home? This young lady is still looking for a lovely home. Her hair looks quite funny and she will probably grow up to be a small-to-middle-sized dog.

She is not as pretty as the other puppies, so people tend to walk past her. So who has a big heart, time and space for such a little animal? Please call Marion on 922 778 630 or visit the refuge between Monday and Friday, from 3-6 pm if you are interested in adopting her. Please visit Accion del Sol anyway and see the fine work the staff do there. The best care and medical treatment is provided for every dog brought into the refuge. The kennels are spotless, and no flea or fly dare enter the premises! The dogs are kept in small groups, between two and up to six, except for those classed as “dangerous”, which have a kennel each to avoid any arguments. All the dogs at the refuge arrive terrified and mostly untouchable, but within a short time they soon learn to trust humans again.

YOUNG APPRENTICE BBC 1, Monday 24th October 9:00pm Lord Sugar is on the hunt for a Young Apprentice, as the business based reality show returns. 21 October - 27 October 2011

Chosen from thousands of applicants, twelve candidates aged between 16 and 17 compete for a ÂŁ25,000 fund that will be tailor-made to kick-start a business career.

In this first episode, the boys are pitted against the girls as Lord Sugar sets his first task: to make a new range of frozen treats, ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts, and then sell

them directly to the public. Under the watchful eyes of Lord Sugar's trusted aides Karren Brady and Nick Hewer, it is not long before everyone begins to feel the heat.

Relationships become chilly and, as dreams of success melt away, the losing team faces a frosty reception in the boardroom, before Lord Sugar utters his infamous last words: "You're fired".

X FACTOR, put these words in the right order: Plot, Lost, the. Contestants are boring, the judges lacklustre, and I believe Simon Cowell has dropped one by opting out for the American counterpart. Nu Vibe were so drab that even Jedward have been taking the Mickey out of them on OK! TV. Talk about kettle and pot, they asked what would they be called in a year if they stayed together ‘Vibe?’ Oh, what a pair of wits (spelling mistake). Frankie Co-coma (I haven’t made a mistake), and what’s that hair all about? He’s got the same barber as Eoigan Quigg, and they look as if they came on the same bike. Apparently, though, Frankie’s a bit of a ladies’ man and, since being on the show, has had the names of his latest conquests tattooed on his behind. If he makes it through to the final, he may have to borrow J-Lo’s posterior when he runs out of room. One thing everyone must surely be fed-up with is the clichés bandied about in every series: “You nailed it”, or “I just didn’t get it” (Louie, all the time), and “It’s my life” and “I was born to do this’. The best one has to be: “My Gran sent in the application form without me knowing before she passed on, and now she’s up there watching me.” I bet she’s regretting it now. It’s annoying when people get outed from Boot Camp saying: “That’s the end for me now,” when they’re only 18 or so. If you were born to do it, why not get a van, buy a PA system, and do it the old-fashioned way by hard work and learning the craft properly, instead of the easy option of bleating on telly when you’re

not good enough. Anyone who has won the competition has enjoyed short-term success, while some have enjoyed none at all. Remember Leon Jackson, Steve Brookstein and probably Matt Cardle? No, nor me. The strange thing that is some of the losers, G4 and JLS, to name two, have done much better than the winners with regards to popularity and successful record sales, so it makes you think, why bother? On the upside, if you are an entertainer anyway, or you intend to take it up as a living after the show, “As seen on the X Factor” will look good on your publicity, although remember that the contact you signed with SYCO enables him to take a chunk out of your earnings for a while after the show finishes … Doh! Last Sunday’s vote-off was two million viewers down on the previous week, with only 11 million tuning in. Billy Porter sells more DVDs than that in a month, so could this mean that another series may be in jeopardy? I hope so, because then we can concentrate on real TV like Spooks, which is in its last-ever series and is, excellent, and the drama Hidden, which is definitely worth a watch. Good news for Fast Show fans is that a new series is being made with all the old team and familiar characters. “This week I will be mostly eating yoghurt.” The bad news is that it’s being shown on the Internet only. I think ITV on a Saturday at 8pm would be a better spot. Locally, the entertainment world soldiers on. The other night, after a fab meal at the Oriental Garden, we wandered down The Patch in Playa de Las Americas. There were a lot of people milling about, mostly with jumpers tied around

their necks carrying bottles of water, dancing outside the restaurants to the entertainment while not buying a drink (pet hate, we have a water cannon at the Rumpot). We found ourselves at the Brewers Droop, a name close to my heart. On the bill was TEAs’ runner-up Heather Jane Howarth, aka The Fattitude Show, and though I’d worked with her once, I was looking forward to actually sitting as an audience member and watching the front of her for a change. The first thing that struck me was the amount of running about she does - if she’s not careful, it will quickly become The Thinitude Show. At the onset, because it was a warm night, most of the audience sat outside, with only a handful braving the heat. And as the show is audience-participation intensive, I wondered how this was going to work. Straight away she confidently launched into the crowd, with a lot of material new to Tenerife, which was a refreshing change, and the room began to fill up. Even my wife, Karen, got up on stage, although she denied it the following morning! All in all, without giving too much away, the show is good family fun with lots of props and costume changes, and a mention has to go to Fabio Souza Haigh who designed and made the costumes. A good night was had by all and well done to the new proprietors, who have lifted the whole operation back up.

CORONATION STREET 7:30 - 8.00 pm - ITV 1 INNOCENT Fiz Stape is led into court for the start of her trial – as her estranged husband John watches from afar. The killer returns to the cobbles in a bid to stop her being sent down for the murders of Colin Fishwick, his elderly mother Joy and stalker Charlotte Hoyle. John, looking dishevelled with a beard, realises he has to do something drastic to help the wronged mum-ofone.

But instead of handing himself in to the police, he decides to return to Weatherfield where he will kidnap Rosie Webster. He holds the babe hostage and reveals exactly what happened to the three people he killed. He then orders her to go to the court and repeat his version of the events to get Fiz off – or else face the consequences. John is back and desperate to save Fiz from going down. She has no idea he’s

back and things really aren’t going very well for her inside the court. The prosecution has a strong case against her because she helped John to move Colin’s body and pretended to be Joy’s daughter-in-law to cash in on her will while John was in a mental hospital. All John has to do is hand himself in and confess everything to get her off but he’s not prepared to go to prison.

MUMMIFYING ALAN Egypt's Last Secret

9:00 - 10:40 pm - Channel 4 It is a mystery that has baffled scientists for centuries: how were the ancient Egyptians able to preserve their greatest pharaohs perfectly for millennia? Now, 3000 years later, a terminally ill British man called Alan has donated his body so that leading experts can, for the first time, apply the secret mummification formula to create a 21st-

Page 28

century mummy. Filmed inside one of the UK's leading forensic pathology labs, a team of scientists have come together to unlock the preservation techniques used during the 'Golden Age' of Tutankhamen. The 18th Dynasty was a time of huge cultural change, but it also marked the pinnacle of Egyptian embalming techniques.

Using a secret and complex blend of ingredients and processes, embalmers managed to stop decomposition almost entirely. But what were the mysterious and complex recipes they were using? Did they really understand the science behind them? And if so, could this represent the greatest scientific achievement of ancient Egypt?

But others have different plans and, surprisingly, rather take to this fish out of water and his inspired detective skills...

The journey begins for David at the North Pole one of the few places he has never visited. After six months

of darkness ends with the return of the sun, a pair of courting polar bears reveal a surprisingly tender side. At Greenland's great ice cap waterfalls plunge into the heart of the ice, and a colossal iceberg calves into the sea.

07:30������������Trust Me I'm a Genie

10:30�������������������������� This Morning

9:00 - 10:00 pm - BBC 2 captures the singer, dancer, filmmaker, architect, creative genius and great artist at work as he creates and perfects his final show. Kenny Ortega, who was both Michael Jackson's creative partner and the director of the stage show is also directing the film, which is produced by Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega and Paul Gongaware

In May this year, US Special Forces shot and killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. Publicly Pakistan is one of America's closest allies – yet every step of the operation was kept secret from it. Filmed largely in Pakistan and Afghanistan, this timely and enthralling two-part documentary series reveals the hidden story of how for a decade Pakistan allegedly deceived America and the

West – from 9/11 to the present day – and was then found out. It is a charge denied by Pakistan's military establishment. As one former head of intelligence agency the ISI says: "Unfortunately, one guy we missed – that's the number one guy [Bin Laden] ... and so we got all the blame." But it is an accusation lent credence by serving Taliban commanders, to whom the

programme gained unique access. They describe the support they get from Pakistan, both in terms of weapons, training and a place to hide. The programme tells the story of how Pakistan, a supposed ally, stands accused by top CIA officers and Western diplomats of causing the deaths of thousands of coalition soldiers in Afghanistan – deaths that continue to this day.

Unable to alert the police to what's happened, Harry and Gina drop him at a hospital and head to see Joe Collins in a hotel room near Heathrow. Collins is in a desperate state. He tells them he

was hired to do a job for Styles a while back but changed his mind. However, rather than walk away, he made the fatal mistake of stealing his laptop. Realising its contents probably hold the answers, Harry takes the laptop and heads to Lauren's with Gina. In the morning, the two of them split up: Gina goes to Nigel Fountain

for answers, while Harry finds someone to break into the laptop. Both trips deliver some unexpected truths, and Harry suddenly realises he has less than an hour to stop an event that could change everything – not just for himself but for the country. In a climactic showdown, he is forced to confront the past that has long haunted him.

Held as a commemoration of Michael Jackson, the Millennium Stadium was packed with 50,000 attendees as Jamie Foxx and Fearne Cotton tended to co-hosting duties. Drawing the loudest applause of the night were the King of Pop's three children, as Paris, Prince and Blanket stood in front of the crowd

clad in MJ-esque attire. Speaking only briefly, 13-year-old Paris said to those who came out for the show, "We're very happy to be here on this special night to honor our father." With performances by the likes of Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green and Jackson family members including La Toya, Tito, Marlonand Jackie, Mr Foxx announced prior to the onset of the festivities, "Tonight is a history lesson. We're going to cover five

decades of greatness." Meanwhile, Smokey was happy to bring Michael's music back to the forefront rather than the headline-dominating trial of Dr Conrad Murray, as he said, "This is a great counter-act to that. And it gives people something happy to do, rather than thinking about what's going on in the trial." Ne-Yo added, "It's not about the controversy. It's not about the trial. It's not about his death. It's about celebrating his life. It's about celebrating his music."

The worst household spending plunge ever

Make do and mend IN the UK, B&Q have uncovered an austerity-inspired DIY trend as UK consumers take rising living costs ‘into their own hands.’

This month has seen a marked uplift in DIY class bookings in run-up to autumn energy hikes. So far, B&Q has trained almost 11,000 consumers in its 15 You Can Do It Centres. There are 3,000 downloads of B&Q’s ‘how to’ iPhone app every month and over 10,000 downloads of “Fix Plumbing Problems” since start of July Over 1,150 schools have signed up to the DIY Job Done! programme since July. B&Q, the UK’s largest home improvement and garden centre retailer, has experienced a significant increase in customer demand for its practical, home improvement services and apps. With the average increase in the cost of UK living set to hit 5%, and with large hikes in energy tariffs expected in Autumn, it seems consumers are looking to manage their ‘household’ inflation by seeking to do more around the home themselves. In the last month, the retailer has experienced an increased up-take of its You Can Do It DIY classes, handson workshops which include expert advice on energy saving and lessons in fixing plumbing problems. Last week, bookings for the classes experienced an uplift of 65 percent and a 184 percent increase the week before with the most popular classes including those on plumbing and patch-plastering. Despite only being currently run in just 15 of its UK stores, B&Q has seen almost 11,000 consumers attend its DIY classes since it launched them earlier this year. With a number of classes costing as little as £10 a small outlay can help

consumers save on hefty tradesmen call-out charges for problems they could fix themselves. Alongside its You Can Do It centre classes, B&Q also runs a Job Done! Home improvement programme in UK schools which builds DIY knowledge for children as young as five. The initiative has experienced a comparable increase in demand with over 1,150 schools signing up in the last 3 months alone. It appears parents’ austerity in the home is rubbing off on their children and schools are keen to give young people the chance to learn practical and self-sufficient skills. Due to the high level of demand for the You Can Do It programme, B&Q is also rolling out a new programme of kids’ classes for October half term. This DIY trend is also mirrored by online customer activity as customers are downloading more ‘How To’ guides than ever and its iPhone app is being downloaded by around 3,000 people a month. ‘How

to’ download figures since the start of July back up the fact that customers are most interested in researching practical skills that could save them money. By far the most popular download in the last few months has been the “Fix Plumbing Problems” ‘How To’ guide with 10,192 downloads. Next popular was the “Deal with Plumbing Emergencies” ‘How To’ with downloads of 3,004. Katherine Paterson, B&Q’s Marketing Director says; “An increase in interest in practical DIY skills underlines further the pressure customers are currently under in term of managing their day to day living costs. Cost conscious home improvers are taking the savvier options realising that saving money and learning a new skill are what’s required to meet today’s market forces. Making, doing, mending and saving money is what our DIY classes are all about. We are here to help.” More information available from www.diy.com/youcandoitclasses

The report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) warns that things are worse now than when the country came out of past downturns. Its study found household expenditure fell by 5% in real terms between 2008 and the first quarter of 2009, when Britain was last officially in recession. But unlike the previous two downturns, in 198081 and 1990-91, spending has still not recovered to its pre-recession levels. Food purchases were significantly lower in the last recession due to

higher food prices, along with lower spending on holidays, alcohol and eating out. Consumer durables expenditure, though, was little changed during 2008-09, something the IFS attributes to the temporary cut in VAT and the vehicle scrappage scheme introduced by the last government. The think-tank also said it was young households, where the oldest person was under 35, which reduced spending fastest while households with people over 64 carried on with little change. The drop in spending since 2008 has been unprecedented in recent history both in its scale and its persistence. Cormac O’Dea, a research economist at the

IFS who complied the study, said the pattern of household expenditure is crucial to the understanding of the path of the economy as it accounts for about 65% of Gross Domestic Product - or GDP. He said: “Continued economic weakness has gone hand in hand with continued low levels of household spending and the drop in spending since 2008 has been unprecedented in recent history both in its scale and its persistence.” High inflation and rising job losses are major factors behind the cutbacks. Last month, the IFS warned the impact of public spending cuts and tax rises on UK household income would be felt for up to 10 years.

Google has launched ice cream sandwich update Google has announced the latest update to its Android mobile operating system - the Ice Cream Sandwich.

It will offer a variety of improvements including the ability for users to unlock their phone simply by looking at it. Ice Cream Sandwich will be gradually rolled out across smart phones and tablets running Google Android software, the first of which being Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smart phone. For the first time, this new version of Android will work on both smart phones and tablets. Previously, different versions were designed for each platform. This is likely to make it easier for app developers to produce programmes to work across many devices - a big challenge with previous generations of the software. Ice Cream Sandwich will go into battle with iOS5

which was launched by iPhone maker Apple earlier this month. Google Android is the industryleading software for smart phones, currently powering approximately 48% of the market - compared to 19% for Apple’s iOS5. This is mostly in part due to Google’s software being available across a larger number of devices than Apple’s products. The fierce competition between the two firms has seen them locked in various complex court cases across the world relating

to design and software patents. In Australia, Apple successfully obtained a temporary order banning the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 after arguing the Samsung device has stolen the look and some functionality of the iPad. Apple have pressed for a similar ban in the US over Samsung’s tablets and smart phones. However, Samsung have launched counter claims saying it is in fact Apple in breach of patents, not the other way round.

Cyclamen will provide winter warmth CYCLAMEN, which produce upturned petals on long flower stems, are a popular winter-flowering pot plant and should be receiving attention now if you want to enjoy them again in the coming months.

Now is the time to spark old tubers into growth after their summer rest, and to sow seeds for new plants. In fact, tubers which have been stored in pots of dry com-

post will probably be producing tiny clusters of leaves on the surface by now. They should be tipped out of their pots and the old compost crumbled away. Large tubers can be cut into multiple sections, each with a growth bud. Dust the cut edges with fungicide powder and repot into fresh, moist, potting compost and ensure that only the lower half is buried. Cyclamen seeds are sometimes sow to germinate, but there is a way to give Mother Nature a nudge by speeding up the process.

Soak the seeds in tepid water for 12 hours, and then rinse them under gentle, running water for 30 minutes to wash away natural germination inhibitors. Sew the seeds in pots of cutting and seed compost, pushing them just below the surface. You will see the seedlings develop with long leaf stalks and tiny, translucent tubers on the surface of the compost.

The Royal Horticultural Society is telling gardeners not to feel disappointed about the size of their pumpkins this Halloween, which are likely to be on the small side due to this year’s unusual weather in the UK. The dry start to the summer meant plants struggled to get roots into the ground and also led to attacks of powdery mildew disease. This destroyed foliage early in the year and meant crops couldn’t take advantage of the late summer warmth and sun. Pumpkins need a long growing season and any delay in growth reduces the fruit size and prevents pumpkins from reaching maturity. Guy Barter, chief horticultural advisor at the RHS said: “Gardeners mustn’t be disheartened if they feel their pumpkins are a little on the small side, as the weather has had an impact on growth this year. “The cool, wet dull spell in midlate summer was also less than ideal for pumpkins. Courgettes on the other hand only need a short season and thrived in the damp, dull summer. Orchards are also having a bumper year, providing plenty of fruit for another Halloween tradition, apple bobbing!” In the south-west and southeast, gardeners have struggled with dull, showery, conditions, while in the Midlands it has been

dry, but not sunny. Despite the weather, Guy Barter says his pumpkin crop has been reasonable and here are his top ten tips for good pumpkins: 1. Sow seeds from mid-April. Sow two seeds to a 9cm pot, discarding the weaker plant as soon as possible. 2. Germinate in warm sunny greenhouse or similar. 3. Grow in bright sunny conditions and protect against chilly nights. 4. Feed with any general purpose fertiliser when roots appear through the bottom of the pot. 5. Plant out in early summer ideally covering with fleece or cloches until the plants get too big. 6. When planting out soak the seeds in with a starter fertiliser

21 October - 27 October 2011

- half strength general purpose liquid fertiliser is satisfactory 7. Rich soil is not necessary and may delay or reduce cropping. One bucketful of compost and 100g of general purpose fertiliser is usually sufficient. 8. Allow plenty of space (at least 1.2m) between plants crowded plants crop late or poorly or both. 9. Lavish watering is not required, but moist soil will help prevent mildew. Ponding the soil to make a depression around the plant can make watering easier. 10. Mildew can be checked, but not cured, by spraying with the non toxic SB Plant Invigorator, or the vegetable and fish oil based organic 2in1 Spray.

The advice is a bit late for this year, but there’s always 2012.

The yield and quality of the fruit usually drops off after three years of cropping so, if you grow strawberries regularly, it us worth considering replacing the bed with new plants. A good tip is to replace one-third of the plants each year, which will enable you to enjoy s strawberry every year. And if you’ve never attempted to grow your own, then now is the best time of all. Prepare the soil well before getting your plants, adding well-rotted organic matter and clearing away all traces of weeds, which become so difficult to control in a well-established strawberry bed. Well-rooted runners in small pots or peat blocks can be bought from garden centres, or by mail order from specialist suppliers if you are in the UK. They should be planted as soon as possible once you have got them, spacing each plant around 12-18ins apart. And if you have space for

rows, make sure there’s 3ft between them. Plant with a trowel, firming the plants in thoroughly with the sole of your boot, making sure the crown of the plant is just level with the surface of the soil. Water immediately after planting, using a medium-fine spray on the watering can or hose to avoid disturbing the roots. Then keep the ground moist throughout and watch them spread.

Dear Christine

Your resident Agony Aunt

from Robot, answers your hair questions

You over-50s can still lighten up your lives!

SO you’re not famous? You don’t have a celebrity lifestyle? You’re not ready to give in yet?

Good! Who says that being over 50 is a time to “give up” trying to look your best? Not me - that’s for sure. I have plenty of clientele in this age bracket, and one thing’s certain: most of them don’t look it because they know that looking good needn’t be a chore - nor cost the earth. Getting your look right and keeping up to it will give any woman a boost, not to mention a few more compliments as well. Why give into time and say: “Oh, I’m too old now, and who cares about me anyway?” I have lost count of the times I’ve told new clients: “This is too old for you.” They seem to have been misled into thinking that over 50 means over the hill, and that hairdressers don’t care about what they go out with on their heads. They seem to think the

Page 40

stylist is more concerned about the young and trendy. But personally, I like to have a mix of clients because it keeps it interesting. So, if you’ve decided it’s time you had a change, then read on. But do keep in mind that the right style or colour starts with the right stylist. There’s no use just walking into a salon and expecting anyone to pick up on the fact that you need a “new” you. So ask around and look for someone with hair that you’d like and say: “Where did you get that done?” There’s no better compliment, so don’t be afraid to ask. Once you’ve decided where you are going, then that’s where the fun begins. Let’s face it, most women in their 50s have some grey hair, so maybe you’re also going to need a colour or a colour change? The “lighter is better on mature hair” rule is normally is the best guide, but there are exceptions. Lighter colours soften the face, whereas darker ones can look harsh.

Cuts should always be around shoulder-length or shorter - no harsh lines, either, or anything too drastic looking. No woman wants to look as though she’s trying too much. Take a look at Lulu. She’s 60ish, and so is Sharon. But do they look it? No! And why? Because they haven’t settled into that feeling of, “Oh well, I’m 50, 60, 70, so I’ll give up”. Yet the correct colour and cut will lift your face better than a new wardrobe, and you’ll be wearing it every day, so it better look good. Last but not least, make sure you go for a style you can create at home, There’s no point in having your hair looking great in the salon, then a mess for six weeks until the next visit. Be a little braver when your asking for something new, and don’t be afraid to experiment. Stylists can shave off a few years with a new haircut and colour, WITHOUT the use of surgery. So ask yours what they can do for you.

Dear Christine, I don’t know what to do about my boyfriend of 15 months. When I first met him he was so loving and kind, but the last eight months have been very difficult and we’ve argued a lot. He has personal problems from his childhood, to do with his father, and it means that every time he gets in a mood, he turns nasty and abuses everyone, including me. Then we start arguing and he calls me awful names. In time, he cools down and apologises, always saying he loves me a lot and is scared he’s going to lose me. At the moment, we’re spending time apart. We haven’t spoken for two weeks because everyone says he needs space to think about what he has done to me. His mum says he’s very confused and unsure about himself, but she also says he still cares about me a lot and is missing me. He has told his mum that he is scared I will hang up or not answer the phone if he contacts me. But when I call him to talk things over, he hangs up. It’s frustrating and hurtful. Can you please give me some advice as I want our relationship to work? Donna

Your boyfriend’s earlier experiences have fostered a pattern of abuse, which he has carried into his relationship with you. Once his anger starts, he’s unable to control it until it runs its course, and that’s unpleasant for anyone close to him emotionally. Please know that without psychological help, he will not change. He has already hurt you and will continue to do so. There may be times when everything is fine and it feels very loving. Trust me, though, these times will not last. He will snap, withdraw and continue his destructive behaviour. You say you love this guy very much, but you must realise that this is an emotion-

ally-dangerous situation for you. You don’t want to get trapped in the cycle in which so many victims of abuse find themselves - always living in fear or walking on eggshells lest they somehow trigger their partner’s rage. My best advice is to walk away, unless he gets some kind of long-term treatment. He will not get better on his own. In fact, he will probably get worse. Also, anyone who stays with an abuser suffers from a significant loss of self-esteem. Eventually, you start to believe you deserve to be treated badly, which, of course, is rubbish! Please protect yourself and have the courage to let go. No one should have to put up with this kind of behaviour, and you deserve far better. We all deserve to be with a partner who is kind, loving, consistent and thoughtful. We all deserve to be treated with respect. Dear Christine I’m 54 and have been married for four months to a man of 57. A couple of months before we got married, I noticed he was ogling other women while we were out. If we’re in a restaurant or bar, he seems to find an attractive female to stare at, and looks at me only if he has to answer me. If a woman is wearing something lowcut, he’ll wait until she is right beside him and then look straight down her top. When we’re at the beach or walking along the prom, his eyes are out on stalks. At the fair this summer, he insisted on getting on every ride with his daughter’s cute 19-year-old friend - they were out on holiday here. And yet he’d told me he didn’t like fairground rides. He’s even hired a pretty young woman to help out in his office. I tried talking to him about his behaviour a couple of months ago. I said I found it very disrespectful and wouldn’t tolerate it. But

he just laughed, said he wouldn’t change and, as an excuse, said he was a “people-watcher”. I’m not sure I want to live the rest of my life with someone like this. I was happily married before to my late husband and was treated with respect. What do you think I should do? Mrs B

I think your husband’s behaviour is outrageous. It’s also inappropriate at times -insisting that his daughter’s 19-year-old girlfriend ride with him is downright vile. I don’t blame you at all for feeling upset. I know nothing of this man’s relationship history, so it is hard to ascertain what his problem is. However, I would guess that deep down he feels inadequate and believes the grass is always greener. I’d say he’s also dealing with ageing issues, feeling he needs the attention and approval of others to validate his masculinity. His obsessive “ogling” is clearly starting to interfere with your sense of yourself as an attractive woman, and you are feeling very unhappy. My suggestion is to make it clear that his behaviour makes you insecure and irritated and that if he is unable to stop, the two of you should talk to a counsellor. If he won’t change and doesn’t agree to get therapy, you need to decide whether or not you can tolerate this behaviour. In all relationships, we have to evaluate whether a person’s positive traits outweigh his/her negative ones. Ask yourself if you are happy with this man, in spite of this trait. And what does he actually do that makes you happy? If he is a good husband in other ways, can you be content to hang on in there? Leaving a good man because of one annoying habit may not be the best move. On the other hand, if his habit is unbearable to you, pulling you down, you may be far happier on your own. The decision is one only you can make.

The perfect technique for straightening oneself out THE Alexander Technique was created by Australian actor Fredrick Alexander, who believed that every man, woman and child held the possibility of physical perfection.

He also believed that it was “our responsibility” to attain it by personal understanding and effort. Alexander, born prematurely in 1869, led a rather sickly childhood, which left him with a slight build but a strong character. In his early acting career, while Alexander gave recitals of humorous and dramatic

pieces, he found that he was starting to lose his voice for no apparent reason. His doctor diagnosed inflamed vocal cords and prescribed various treatments and rest, but his condition worsened. Alexander who faced either an operation or giving up his career, resolved to find the cause of his problem. He noted that his voice functioned perfectly when he was not working. He arranged mirrors around the room to watch himself and noticed that as he recited, he sucked in air and pulled his head down, depressing the larynx.

This reaction, in turn, shortened his spine and narrowed his back, affecting his breathing. He noticed that when he spoke normally, his actions and poise were the same but less exaggerated. He realised that this posture reflected a pattern of misuse which affected his voice and was related to a general pattern of tension in his body. Over the years, he tried many new ways of using his body to prevent his old habits affecting his voice. He finally discovered that the relationship between his head and neck, and how the head and neck related to the rest of the body, were crucial to correct body use. He believed that the head, neck and back worked in harmony so that it contributed to the balance in the whole person. The actor taught his new techniques to fellow actors and actresses, and then developed and refined it into the combination of verbal instructions and manual guidance that became the Alexander Technique. It focuses on the belief that physical and psychological well-being can be improved by correcting the way the body is held and used. Alexander believed that if we were more aware of our posture, balance and movement in everyday activities,

then the bad habits developed over time, should be corrected and discarded. Along with these, he believed our correct functioning of the body would again be restored. The Alexander Technique teaches posture and control of the body. The technique allows students to differentiate between uncontrolled, unnecessary effort, and natural freedom of movement, which allows the body to function at optimum level. Incorrect posture and misuse of the body causes it to sag, which leads to distortion of the spinal curves and causes muscles to shorten and then become stiff. The result then leads to strain, headaches, stiffness, fatigue, backaches and general feelings of unnecessary tiredness. The Alexander Technique is not so much an alternative treatment but more a process of re-education, which allows us to regain our natural poise, grace and use our body more efficiently. Thus, it is often referred to as posture training The Alexander Technique focuses on training you to work out the distortions in your body, and encourages the natural reflexes to work once again. Muscles tone is improved and the body becomes relaxed enough to release tension, improve

breathing, circulation and digestion. Posture and balance are then improved, making breathing easier. Movement becomes more natural and poised, and harmful pressures which could have been pressing on organs and body systems are released. Overall, the Alexander Technique is aimed at encouraging awareness of the body, so that, hopefully, the individual will have an increased sense of confidence, greater vitality and an improved positive mental outlook. This will then translate into improved physical health. The Technique is safe for people of all ages, and many elderly people and pregnant women benefit from treatment. The body can be reeducated to correct posture and generally improve health.

Problems treated Sessions are aimed at improving overall posture and body responses, and many conditions respond to this, particularly those such as asthma, headaches, eczema and fatigue, which are all made worse by stress. Circulatory problems, breathing disorders and muscular and skeletal conditions may respond to Alexander Technique, which does not actually set out to “cure” as such, rather to encourage body systems to work more effectively. Number of sessions needed The Alexander Technique is quite complex and 25-45 lessons are usually required to learn the processes involved. The sessions are, however, very therapeutic and many people carry on with them indefinitely.

Cheese is most stolen food item Cheese has been labelled a “highrisk food” because it is the most stolen food item across the globe, according to a report.

Shoplifting and organised retail crime cost the UK high street an estimated £4.9m during the past 12 months, according to the Centre for Retail Research. Theft is a growing concern for shop owners and the amount of stolen retail goods increased by 6.2% in the year to July. Food products are amongst the most targeted products, with cheese topping the list. The dairy item’s loss percentage (3.9%) is more than three times the global average (1.29%). Neil Matthews, vice-president of Checkpoint Systems, a retail security firm, said: “Compared to the 2010 figures, loss among the high-risk food lines has shot up by more than the global average, evidence that they are increasingly being targeted by shoplifters.” Some 1.86% of clothing sales were lost last year, while mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow increased to 2.37%. Thieves tended to opt for branded products - shoplifters stole an average of £79 worth of goods each time, according to the Global Retail Theft Barometer 2011.

Most stolen items at supermarkets: • Razorblades • Alcohol • Cheese • Coffee • CDs and DVDs Source: Centre for Retail Research

Emmanuel Hembert, retail analyst at AT Kearney, said: “Retail casualties have been extremely high over the summer and some of the most exposed retailers have already disappeared from the high street. “For the past six months, they have been affected by bad news -

economic slow down, government cuts and now an increase in shoplifting. “With the bad news piling up, bigger names on the high street may not be able to resist the tide.” It also seemed retailers need to keep an eye on their own staff. The report showed theft by UK employees represents 36.1% of the total loss. Mr Matthews said: “It’s extremely worrying that the actions of some people can end up affecting innocent families financially, which is a cost the majority of people can ill-afford in this tough economic climate.”

Orange carrots now You must be joking CARROTS always look so eye-catching and taste so sweet, yet kids don’t seem to take to them that easily. And as for broccoli? Forget it!

Now, though, a sweeter variety of broccoli has gone on sale in UK supermarkets alongside multi-coloured carrots - purples, yellows and ambers among them. The super-broccoli is packed with a plant chemical credited with warding off cancer and heart problems, and is said to taste better than other varieties. BenefortŽ broccoli contains up to three times as much as a compound called glucoraphanin which, when

Page 42

broken down within the body, is thought to provide protection against prostate and other cancers. It is also said to strengthen the heart. Also, raising levels of the plant chemical reduces broccoli’s sharp flavour, making the vegetable less bitter to taste. Scientists from Norwich’s John Innes Centre and Institute of Food Research have spent nearly 20 years working out why vegetables such as broccoli are so good for us, and how to make them even healthier. The BenefortŽ variety, now on sale at Marks & Spencer stores around the country, costs no more than normal broccoli. It was produced

by crossing a common variety with a wild one containing exceptionally high levels of health-boosting glucoraphanin. The chemical is also found in cauliflower and in Brussels sprouts, but at much lower levels. Dr Simon Coupe, an M&S agronomist (specialising in plants for food and fuel), said: “It takes a long programme of growing to bring these products to market and we’re proud to be able to be first to launch this product.” Meanwhile, those children reluctant to eat their greens may now be tempted to tuck into purple, orange, tangerine, white, yellow, cream

and amber instead. The multi-coloured carrots, grown naturally in Norfolk, were cultivated from old varieties no longer produced commercially because orange has been the favoured colour for hundreds of years. The carrots, which have their foliage still attached, are being sold by the bagful as a mixed selection in branches of Tesco across the UK. Tesco vegetable buyer Steve Williams said: “Some people say the white and yellow ones are slightly sweeter than the orange variety and are also crunchier.”

First spaceport opens

British billionaire Richard Branson has opened the world’s first commercial spaceport.

With usual flair, the businessman inaugurated the building in the New Mexico desert by breaking a champagne bottle against a hangar - while abseiling down the side of it. The site has been called Spaceport America and will serve as the new home for his company, Virgin Galactic. The company said it is expected to house up to two WhiteKnightTwos and five SpaceShipTwos, in addition to all of Virgin’s astronaut preparation facilities and mission control. About 150 people already booked on to the first flights attended the event. Also among the guests was US astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second human on the moon. Last month Mr Branson said he hoped to launch a vessel

into space within the next 12 months, which he said would kick off an era of commercial space travel. “The mother ship is finished... The rocket tests are going extremely well, and so I think that we’re now on track for a launch within 12 months of today,” he said. “About an hour between Los Angeles and London is not completely out of the question,” Mr Branson said, while adding it would probably take many years before the company could offer such a service. In the meantime, Virgin has sold around 430 tickets for space travel, at £127,000 ($200,000) each. A number of private companies are rushing to fill the gap left by Nasa, which ended its 30-year Shuttle programme in July with the completion of the final Atlantis mission to the International Space Station.

Ryanair increase seats following the footy draw Ryanair confirmed that it had added a second extra flight from Dublin to Tallinn on Friday 11th November and returning early morning Saturday 12th November to cater for the phenomenal demand from Irish soccer fans for Ryanair’s low fare flights to Tallinn in Estonia.

In the 32 minutes immediately following the Euro play-off draw, Ryanair’s scheduled flight from Dublin to Tallinn went from 50 seats sold to 184 seats sold, leaving just five remaining seats at Ryanair’s full one way highest fare of 205 euros plus taxes. In response Ryanair has now added two extra flights going out on Friday 11th November and returning on Saturday 12th November and is offering seats on these flights from 99 euros each way (plus taxes). Ryanair also advised that if there is sufficient demand for a third Dublin-Tallinn flight on Friday 11th November coming back on the Saturday, then it will be added in due course, but if there isn’t sufficient demand for extra seats at these fares, then this extra flight will not be added. Ryanair’s Daniel de Carvalho said: “Ryanair has not increased its prices to Tallinn following the Euro draw. The seats on our one scheduled flight were simply snapped up by eager football fans in the 30 minutes following the draw, leaving just

Page 44

five remaining seats on our scheduled Thursday flight. We have now added not just one, but two extra outbound flights on the Friday, at prices from just 99 euros one way (plus taxes) and if there is sufficient demand from Irish soccer fans, then we will add a third outbound flight on the Friday in due course. We expect demand for theses seats, which operate directly into Tallinn Airport to be high, so we advise all football fans to snap them up quickly and avoid high priced tour operator packages, which are currently priced at 500 and 600 euros return.”

Vauxhall up their game with terrific new Zafira VAUXHALL have confirmed that their Zafira Tourer concept, previewed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, will soon become a reality. The Luton car-maker actually began the mid-range peoplecarrier explosion in 1999 and, during the 12 years since and 2.2 million sales logged up, their thinking caps are still firmly in place. All the other offerings over the years from their rivals have not preventedVauxhall from producing another comfortable version of their family machine, albeit larger, and more upmarket. It has retained its quality looks and still does the job it was always intended for. The first models will be in UK showrooms early next year, and the new Tourer will sit above the current Zafira model in the company’s line-up. It still has that stylish exterior, and has deviated little from the Geneva concept. And the company are convinced it will raise the bar for design, luxury, flexibility and innovation in the MPV sector. While the Tourer will continue to use Flex7 seating, which set new standards for seven-seat integration in the original 1999 car, the system has evolved radically and will offer even greater levels of flex-

ibility, innovation and comfort. Improved material quality, more cabin space and an overwhelmingly-airy cabin further define the Tourer from its compact MPV Zafira sibling. It will also hold great driver appeal. A new chassis, using key components from the Insignia, with a longer wheelbase and wider tracks, will provide outstanding dynamics, while offering occupants more cabin space and ride comfort. Vauxhall’s acclaimed FlexRide adaptive damping system - a rarity in this class - will also be available as an option. Great emphasis has been placed on safety, with a plethora of driver-assist systems making a first appearance in the new model. Included in the optional highlights are Traffic Sign Recognition, Side Blind Spot Alert and Advance Park Assist, which helps drivers find an adequate parking space and guides them in to it. Two new engines - a 1.4 Turbo petrol and a 2.0 CDTi diesel (with three outputs) - join a 1.8-litre petrol unit to offer a spread of power options from 110PS to 165PS. The Tourer, unveiled officially to the world at last month’s prestigious Frankfurt Motor Show, displays limousine-like quality and space, combined

Fill her up - for just 2p per litre! IT sounds far too good to be true, but drivers in Venezuela can fill up their cars for as little as 2p per litre.

No wonder then, that the South American country tops the charts when it comes to cheap fuel. It means that the average European family car could be filled in Venezuela for less than the price of a litre of fuel in the UK. The only trouble is, of course, getting there in the first place! Yet although it must feel like it, UK drivers don’t pay the highest prices at the pumps. Far from it, in fact. In the Norwegian capital of Oslo, motorists pay an average of 164p per litre, which is around 30p more than in the UK and nearly one euro more than here in Tenerife. The second-cheapest place in the world for fuel is Saudi Arabia, a country which holds around a quarter of the world’s fuel reserves. Drivers there pay around 8p per litre. Compared with that, drivers in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, might feel hard done by with their lofty 12p-a-litre costs. Mind you, all drivers there are entitled to a free monthly hand-out (or fill-up) of 120 litres of fuel. Might be worth mentioning it to David Cameron, but I doubt it!

with new levels of flexibility Flex7 was a revelation when launched in the original Zafira, enabling owners to transform their car from five to seven-seater quickly and simply. The entire third row can still be folded flush with the floor of the luggage area, but rather than being a bench, the second row now comprises three separate seats. They can be folded and moved fore and aft through 210mm, giving third-row passengers the potential of extra room, compared with the current Zafira. Passengers in the second row also benefit from new levels of space and versatility. Thanks to a clever folding mechanism (available on certain models), the back of the middle seat now folds forward and rotates, providing occupants in the outer seats with individual armrests. The Tourer’s load volumes have also increased. In five-seat mode, the luggage area can now hold up to 710 litres (up 65 litres) and up to 1,860 litres (+40 litres) when all rear seats are folded. FlexConsole, a central storage system running between the front seats (similar to that found in the Meriva), allows occupants to keep the large cabin tidy

and ordered. An armrest module, incorporating a stowage cubby, and a cup-holder, slide and lock into the desired position, giving front passengers greater flexibility while on the move. For the first time in a Zafira model, a new-generation FlexFix is also available. The integrated bicycle carrier fits neatly into the rear bumper and pulls out like a drawer to accommodate two bikes, without the need for any special fixing tools. And that’s a great bonus for today’s keep-fitters. Its distinctive front end, with strong centre crease and twintrapezoidal grille, is unique on a car in this class. Large, “boomerang” graphics sweep from the top of the headlights to the bottom of the fog lamps and frame the grille. And, as with other models, the headlights feature Vauxhall’s wing-shaped daytime running light graphic. All in all, this much-improved Zafira will make a welcome addition to the people-carrier range. With a prices ranging from £21,000-£25,165 and average fuel economy of nearly 63mpg, that says all you need to know.

UD CHIO are slowly beginning to improve, losing only 1-0 at group leaders Armeñime last Friday.

Apart from the reversal, Chio lost a player in the closing minutes when defender Filo was sent off after a second yellow card. Chio will be hoping their luck changes tonight (Friday) when they tackle AD Teide (kick-off 9pm). One player to watch out for is Chio’s Canarian rightback David Niebla, who speaks fluent English because he lived in Scotland until he was eight. His nickname is “El Escocés” which translates as “The Scot”, and he is pic-

Aitor reveals all La Roda 0 CD Tenerife 0

LAST Sunday, Tenerife travelled to face an in-form foe and came away with a point and a clean sheet. There you are. An accurate match report in just 20 words. And with nothing left out. I’m not saying the game was dull or boring … and you get the message! On the plus side it was a decent point and saw the return of Luna. He did nothing wrong apart from getting booked, which he always does! Chechu also made his long-awaited full debut and he was arguably man of the match in midfield. Apart from that, we learned very little last weekend. The addition of the aforementioned Chechu and Luna gives the squad a major boost, and the competition for places is fierce. It bodes well ahead of this Sunday’s noon kick-off with Rayo Vallecano B. Like their first team, they were promoted last season and they have started very well in this higher standard. This is there first-ever season at this level - and quite an achievement when you consider their senior team was in this division just a few years ago. They have Position 1 CD Lugo

claimed the scalps of Albacete and Real Madrid Castilla already, and their mix of flair and youth is earning plaudits. It should be a fascinating tussle on Sunday, and a lively return for Aitor Nunez. The 24-year-old right-back managed fewer than a dozen matches in two seasons in Santa Cruz and suffered two relegations. He was back-up to Marc Betran, but never really did himself justice. Despite this, he has fond memories of his time here: “Tenerife felt like home to me,” he said. “When I was there I was able to play the highest standard of football, and I will always cherish that. Playing seven games in Primera (La Liga) was amazing. “I don’t know why we suffered one, let alone two relegations. I feel we should have stayed in Primera and last season was, I don’t know, very strange.” Nunez has been a regular this season and says he is different player now: “I’m 24 and more of a man. The coach has faith in me and I have a lot of confidence.” While clearly being respectful to the fans, he says his departure this summer left a bad taste in the mouth. “It was very strange. There were no fights or arPoints 23

guments with the club; we were just told we could all leave. And I mean everyone. Aragoneses (Tenerife’s goalie) said that he wanted to stay, and he insisted, and it happened for him. But for the rest of us, we never even had a chance. “I wasn’t offered the chance to stay for less mon-

ey or anything. It was like they didn’t want any of us. So it was made very clear that I would go by hook or by crook. I offered and wanted to stay. “I have played over 60 games at this level with Atletico Madrid B and I knew what was needed to get us promotion. But they didn’t want to know at all. It was like we all had to leave for what we did with relegation. “Thankfully, I was able to find somewhere and not have the same problems as Antonio Hidalgo. I will always be grateful for my time in Tenerife and I will never forget my debut at home to Athletic Bilbao. It was an amazing night.” Tenerife won the match Nunez was on about and it was a rare high in a tough season. His comments about this summer and the departures are quite enlightening. We knew that most of the players would be leaving, but the harsh lengths the board went to are only just being made public. It does seem a little bizarre that a young player like Nunez, with experience of this league, wasn’t given a chance to gain some sort of retribution. As he said, he was happy to stay on lower wages. And if he was good enough for the team in La Liga …

Champions are Hammered PALMS A, last season’s double winners, suffered their first defeat of the season this week against fierce rivals Tenerife Hammers A. The last unbeaten record in Division One went south as the Hammers recorded a stunning 8-2 win. The match started well enough for Palms as Roscoe and Johnny won early legs, but the match turned as Michael grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory against Jambo. This levelled the match at 2-2 and the Hammers seized their chance. They mopped up the doubles and, inspired by in-form Wez, they captured the vital early second singles rubbers. It was a bad night at the office for Palms and blew the league wide open. For the Hammers, it was their fifth straight victory and they seem to be back on their A game. Hoops moved top of Division One for the first time ever as they got the better of Nauta A, where Chris, in particular, was in fine form. Summerland Superstars have quietly moved themselves up to fourth place following a facile 7-3 win at Legends, where only Graham put up any real resistance. Gaffers A stayed in the hunt with an excellent 8-2er over rock-bottom Toscales Old Boys, while Trap Door continue to fall away. They needed late wins from Mickey and Marcus to steal a point at Bar 180 C. Phoenix Knights were nearly upset by Bar 180 A until Harry rescued a late point. Terrace A stay eighth after seeing off struggling Summerlands Allstars, while At-

lantis Sharks and Tasca hosted draws with Dreamers and Target Bar respectively. The top four sides all won in Division Two as Barracuda Bandits maintained their three-point lead. They spanked Toscales A-Team 9-1 but the games were closer than the scoreline suggests. Phoenix Potters got back to winning ways at Tenerife Pool Tables, who have now lost all 11 matches this season. And Summerland Elite needed the very last black in the very last match to sneak past a game Tenerife Hammers C 6-4, Marcus sinking Hammers skipper Tony for the points. Exiles remain unbeaten and notched a rare win at Target Rangers, while Inn The Pink were too strong for Wandabar A. Connors continue to shine, this week accounting for Nauta B 7-3. Market Tavereners returned to winning ways at Lupain, as did Atlantis Crew at La Caña. Barracuda Hunters drew, again, at home to Terrace B. Gaffers B have a handy fivepoint lead in Division Three after a real battle with Exiles B. They may have just slipped the pack as they have some comfortable-looking fixtures coming up. C&A Titans are leading the chase after edging past Dos Hermanos, but hat-tip of the week goes to Next Door bar. They had a stunning 9-1 win at home against a Treehouse team who had won their last three. Their star man, Greg, lost as many matches on Tuesday as he had all season. It was some result for Next Door and they are now unbeaten in five. There were also wins this week for James Place and Bullring Tavern.

Horoscopes of the week Libra

(September 24th-October 23rd) Make sure you wear something smart over the coming days, for golden opportunities are going to be all around, and you will want to create a good first impression. Money is looking more flexible than it has been for a while, and you can actually splash out on something with a clear conscience for once.

ARIES (March 21st -April 20th) Anything you want can be yours before the month is out, yet you have just experienced an unpredictable week. Yet what has gone on so far can be reversed, so that good things can occur. Remember the saying that if you think you can, you will, but if you think you can’t, you won’t. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) You are going to have to do the work of others as they are just `plain idle right now. The good news is that you can do it with your eyes shut and should be able to prove to yourself just how many options are really available to you. But do yourself a favour and maker sure you make your peace with your “enemies” in the coming days. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) You may not be willing to admit it, but you are doing all you can to give a close one a hard time, and you may just end up doing some permanent damage unless you slow down. Plenty of offers in love will be leaving single Geminis spoilt for choice this week. And those financial worries may soon be eased. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) You need to watch out because it is going to be so easy for you to be in

Page 48

the wrong place at the wrong time. This is not a good week to tell any white lies, or to be doing something you shouldn’t. The stars will reveal all to close ones if you behave, so make sure your passport is up to date - you never know! LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) You will be pushed into saying something that you know will spark arguments, but do yourself a favour if it’s not your business and keep it zipped! You don’t want someone washing your laundry in public as well, do you? VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) You’ve spent so much of your time thinking about what you want that you have slightly got lost on the way to your dreams and ambitions. Someone you thought you would never see again will try to make contact again. Go slow. You have to if you want to form that all-important base. SCORPIO (October 24thNovember 22nd) You have got to decide who is more important - a loved one or the recent acquaintances you have made. You don’t do anything by halves, but your loyalty must lie with your heart and not with these new influences with whom you have recently become so attached. And there’s another thing you should know by now: your family need handling with kid gloves this week.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) There’s much that can be done to improve the quality of your life, and a new timetable is essential if you are to find the time for your own life and needs. You have been running about for so many other people that you have forgotten to give yourself any leisure and relaxation time. So be selfish form once! CAPRICORN (December 22ndJanuary 20th) You have had an entertaining week so far, and the stars have allowed you to see a lot of people in a brand-new light -especially yourself. Advice you give to friends is likely to be taken, so speak with care. Scorpios provide the entertainment and seduction, so who knows? There could be a perfect match ion the offing. AQUARIUS (January 21stFebruary 19th) New faces will be coming into your life in abundance, and the planet Mars is going to be giving you the variety you have craved for so long. Look out for a string of compatible love matches making offers that will both shock and please you. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Your charm is going to be opening doors that previously were shut for you. In fact, you the power you need to make a major change with your life. Just don’t make any promises you know you will not keep. Things must remain strictly business as you well know, but the impossible is achievable.
