LATEST NEWS Candidates in wards like Wish, Withdean and Hangleton and Knoll will need to start working the territory soon if they are to dislodge their political opponents. And in Goldsmid, the longer the Conservatives leave it before picking their team and ensuring that their names and faces are known, the less likely they will be to recover lost ground.

Greens

Frank le Duc

TheVote Expect battles over council tax and parking but progress in creating school places and homes

T

he year ahead looks likely to start with a brewing battle over the budget. Should the Greens be allowed to put up Council Tax or should they freeze it once again in line with government policy? While the Conservatives have made their position clear, Labour locally has yet to declare its hand. Although Labour is the smallest of the three parties on Brighton and Hove City Council, its decision will decide whether we pay more from April or our bills remain the same. The Labour group could also swing other votes by siding with the ruling Greens or the opposition Tories. Sometimes the party has abstained rather than back a Conservative proposal. This is probably no surprise to many, as Labour is closer ideologically to the Greens than the Blues. But it has also tried to put some distance between itself and the Green group. Some suspect that as the next local elections approach, in May 2015, we will hear plenty of public criticism from Labour while privately the feelers go out. The local Labour Party has reformed itself over the past year and a half and is growing in confidence. But there is a recognition that winning an overall majority is likely to be an unrealistic goal and that some kind of formal support from surviving Greens could prove vital.

Veteran councillor Brian Fitch recaptured the Hangleton and Knoll seat that he lost in 2007. One political opponent has suggested that he sometimes seems to be playing it for laughs and serving out his time. But another observed that he may just be picking his fights with greater care. He gathered plenty of support as he tackled Blatchington Mill School over its hockey pitch floodlights. And while he may not succeed in saving Toads Hole Valley from the builders, he is a seasoned campaigner who will aim to bank future votes on the back of his efforts. Jeane Lepper continues to serve Hollingdean and Stanmer even though her husband David has retired from the House of Commons after 13 years as MP for Brighton Pavilion. If Labour is to take back the other two seats in the ward, the party may need to bank on her enduring sway and hope that she stands again. One of the new Labour councillors, Anne Pissaridou, a grandmother and former civil servant, has won admirers across party lines since winning her seat in Wish ward. Another, Alan Robins, has brought an authentic local voice to proceedings as if he were a young Councillor Carden. Councillor Robins is one of Labour’s younger members even though he is in his mid-fifties.

Labour

Tories

Labour’s difficulty is age related. None of its young hopefuls were elected in May last year. Long-serving stalwarts such as Bob Carden and Les Hamilton held their seats in Portslade while helping to bring new blood on board. The group’s leader Gill Mitchell is probably the Greens’ most effective critic.

The Tories also have an age imbalance. Like Labour, its younger candidates were unsuccessful in May last year. Its youngest councillors include retired police commander Graham Cox who won the Westbourne by-election just over a year ago. The other two are Tony Janio, who is never short of a jibe for the Greens,

Age poses different problems for the Greens. Some of those standing down just over 18 months ago were relatively youthful and perhaps mindful of their careers. Being a councillor is not generally a route to riches but can take up a lot of time. While it is sometimes said of career politicians that they couldn’t run a whelk stall, Brighton and Hove has had its share of able and committed councillors. Even among the current crop of Greens, Geoffrey Bowden stands out as an able businessman as well as a charming and efficient chairman of meetings. The bonhomie belies a character quite capable of taking tough decisions and using his drive to get things done. In public he is far too courteous to express dismay with the slow pace of progress in the political arena. But if positive changes take place at Saltdean Lido, Black Rock and the King Alfred by 2015, he will deserve a measure of credit. The Greens’ youthful image is exemplified by council leader Jason Kitcat and Phélim Mac Cafferty, one of the two deputy leaders. They undoubtedly have energy but they also won an election that the other

and Andrew Wealls, who comes across as a more thoughtful critic. The charm and diplomacy deployed by Councillor Wealls has enabled him to work constructively across party divisions at times. These qualities could prove useful within his group too. He and Councillor Cox are regarded in some quarters as representing the best hope for their party locally. But they will need to work incredibly hard on the ground. Some believe that the changing demography of Brighton and Hove is against them. Likewise the timing of the next local elections – they are expected to be held on the same day that voters give their verdict on the Conservative-led coalition. One party activist said that David Cameron and George Osborne’s attempts to revive the economy may well be the crucial factor, regardless of how well councillors and candidates work their wards. Keeping a lid on factions and rivalries will also be important especially if selection contests are held in seats such as Patcham.

LATEST NEWS two parties may well have been glad to lose. Their lot has been to oversee cuts. And they have had limited opportunities to pursue their own agenda. The fall-out from the expulsion of Christina Summers from the Green group is unlikely to prove helpful electorally. And parking has proved another thorny issue where whoever holds office is unlikely to win favour for their decisions. Ian Davey is trying to bring a coherence to this aspect of policy, with a city-wide parking review due to be debated within weeks. His opponents are keen to review parking charges at the same time. Given the noise generated by the last round of price rises, which were also intended to bring consistency as well as raise more cash, he is reluctant to concede. Whether it’s now, next year or election year, his hand may well be forced. The year ahead will also the political parties try to make capital out of the need for more school places in primary schools as well as secondary schools. Councillor Wealls has been a particularly keen advocate for free schools and academies, a policy strongly opposed by the Greens. He sees the new schools as the best hope of raising standards as well as creating the required extra capacity. With Whitehawk Primary School likely to become an academy, and the King’s School having been given permission to open, the Greens may well have to swallow their opposition. If they actively block progress, they face being accused of playing politics with the future of our children. Housing is one area where, despite some political posturing,

there is a degree of consensus and some signs of progress. Former council leader Mary Mears started a programme of work in this area, with former councillor Maria Caulfield. When Green councillor Bill Randall took over as leader, the broad direction of policy continued even if the tone of voice changed. Council houses and flats are being refurbished using a creative financial scheme. And new building is taking place. The council is behind a modest amount of this but, more importantly, is encouraging housing associations in particular to invest in Brighton and Hove. The success of Brighton and Hove Albion and the stadium’s sponsor American Express are as crucial to the local economy as anything that our politicians decide. But plenty of political decisions will decide which road we take in the year ahead. Or perhaps that should be which cycle lane we take. Or even which bus. One thing’s for sure – it’s going to be an interesting ride. ■

Penny Thompson talks to Frank le Duc about what to expect from her as the new chief executive of Brighton and Hove City Council

T

he arrival of Penny Thompson was compared by one council insider as like watching a film where the hero jumps from a bridge on to the roof of a runaway train. In her case the train could be the thousands of staff or the hundreds of millions of pounds of spending of which she now has charge. Her job is not so much to bring the train to a juddering halt as to ensure it stays on the right track. Her first six weeks or so were spent meeting councillors, staff and people from partner organisations – in the public sector and in the community and voluntary sector. She said that it involved a great deal of listening. Having clambered inside the train from the roof, she has been trying to work out who does what – and how well they do it. And just before Christmas she sent a paper to her senior managers to start a consultation about the way that the council is managed. It talked about “reshaping the executive leadership team”. In plain English, it means job cuts at the top. The Labour group leader Councillor Gill Mitchell has been calling for a root and branch reorganisation for some time rather than “salami slicing” the council’s staff and spending pots. And at Penny Thompson’s first council meeting last month, Councillor Tony Janio, a Conservative, said that there were more than 500 staff with the word “manager” in their job title. It was too many, he said.

Time for change The detail has yet to emerge so it is too soon to say whether Penny Thompson is about to start a root and branch reform or whether the changes will be more akin to tinkering. Given that she had to shut down the last organisation that she ran – a quango called the General Social Care Council – she should know what is involved if she is to make radical changes. She said: “I learnt the importance of focus. If you’re shutting something down, you really have

to have focus, working well with people and garnering their absolute support and commitment. Otherwise I couldn’t have done what I did, which was keep the organisation going, improve its performance and then hand over its functions. I had to take my staff with me.” She said that after the closure was announced, her priorities included managing an effective transfer and closure, leaving a positive legacy, while treating staff with respect and care. She had previously taken charge of NHS Haringey in London while the chief executive was away on a secondment. The job involved leading on child protection, now increasingly referred to as safeguarding. She started a year after the death of a local child called Peter Connelly – also known as Baby P or Baby Peter. She has held senior posts in challenging times.

“The role of the chief executive is to create the conditions that allow people to succeed” Unlike the four previous chief executives of Brighton and Hove City Council, she comes to the job having already served as a council chief executive. She ran Hackney in London for two and a half years from 2005 where she tried to instil a “customer first” approach. Her predecessor John Barradell also talked about placing great emphasis on excellent customer service. One critic said that customers can take their business elsewhere in a way that council tax payers cannot.

Top priorities More frequently though Penny Thompson used the word “citizens”. She said her priorities were to:

• Tackle inequality • Create a more sustainable city • Engage people who live and work in Brighton and Hove • Modernise the council She said that she would run an efficient, open and customer-focused council which operated collaboratively, creatively and with respect. And she would clarify the council’s ambition and purpose, including ensuring the best deal for council tax payers. She said: “It’s a privilege and a challenge being a local authority chief executive with such a diverse and fascinating set of responsibilities and demands. Brighton and Hove is a truly wonderful city with huge potential for the future and the city council has an important role to play. “I plan to build on progress made recently and to honour my commitment to leading an organisation where accountabilities and purpose are clear and delivery is our main focus. I look forward to working with staff, partners and elected members of all political parties to help the city fulfil its potential.” She added: “I’m somebody who builds on progress. I’m very forward looking.” And after her predecessor was criticised for his trying to implement an approach known as intelligent commissioning, she said that it was increasingly commonly used by local authorities. It involves, among other things, trying to eliminate duplication in the public sector and trying to bring about more joint working. She added: “It seems to me to be a very important discipline. As an organising principle it has some shortfalls. I don’t think it’s a determining organising principle. But I’m not going to sit here and bad-mouth my predecessors. Some of the work that’s been done in children’s and adult services – doing things in different ways – is quite significant. I’m not sure that’s always come across.”

The task ahead Her own professional background is as a social worker. She ran the social services department in Sheffield for six years before becoming chief executive of Hackney Council. But she won’t be trying to second guess her specialist staff, she said, adding: “The role of the chief executive is to create the conditions that allow people to succeed. It’s not to think that I’ve got the monopoly on good ideas. I will provide support and challenge and by that I hope to help them to come up with solutions to meet the needs of our citizens.” The 58-year-old mother of three grown up children is moving to Hove with her partner – it’s easier to find an affordable home with a decentsized garden in Hove than in Brighton. And she wants to be able to walk to work at King’s House, the council’s head office. She said she was genuinely excited about the task ahead despite the financial and political challenges. “I will be working with all three party leaders and councillors from all the parties,” she said, anticipating claims that she was here only to serve the minority ruling Greens. “I’m a really enthusiastic public services leadermanager. And I think the opportunity to apply the learning I’ve had is a really exciting one. I like the idea of making a difference. I really enjoy developing organisations, seeing people within them discover their capability. One of the greatest things in my professional life is the number of people who keep in touch.” With her emphasis on values and culture – on how she works as well as what she achieves – the task of steering the council in a fast-changing world should provide plenty of challenges. With a shake-up at the top already in train, the citizens of Brighton and Hove should soon see whether she can make a difference and whether the council becomes more customer focused. If not, it’s a fair bet that at least some of them certainly will be in touch. ■

What a year! 2

012 was a great year here at JBPR and we want to send all our best wishes to everyone we’ve worked with this past year. Here’s a little run down of our 2012 highlights... January saw JBPR get involved in the launch of a long time Brighton gem in the East end of London. Gresham Blake’s bespoke tailors opened a store on Commercial Street in Shoreditch with a star-studded party that went with a bang. Brighton resident Steve Coogan, the talented Mitch Winehouse and party host Ray Winstone all popped by for a cocktail. In March we joined forces with Peter Andre and SodaStream to raise awareness of plastic bottle waste for Climate Week. Pete posed against a 26ft sculpture made of plastic bottles on Brighton seafront to highlight the issue and its devastating effects on UK coastlines. The whole stunt was caught on camera for Peter Andre’s ITV2 show, with JBPR’s presence more than prevalent throughout! It’s been a tumultuous year for Andre and our best wishes and love go out to him and his family following the passing of his brother. Norman Cook’s Big Beach Bootique 5 gig in June was undoubtedly a huge highlight of JBPR’s 2012 Calender. Bringing together the finest names in house, techno, bass and dance music, including The 2 Bears, Maya Jane Coles, Luciano, Carl Cox, Union, Doorly, Jaguar Skills, DJ Fresh and Annie Mac. Superstar English duo Nero tore up the stage as the penultimate act of the killer weekend. Fatboy’s set blew the Amex away and Saturday was a fitting finale to our weekend. Let’s hope we can look forward to BBB6 soon! September saw us work with the fantastic Peace One Day organisation on their concert for Peace 2012, headlined by the one-and-only Sir Elton John! Between making sure Sir Elton was looked after and guiding Jude Law through the press room we were able to meet the likes of Lily Cole, Eliza Doolittle and Hove local and singer-songwriter James Morrison. We loved the concert, with the JBPR girls left watching ‘Your Song’ from the side of the stage as the crowd cheered on. The after party thrown by Peace One Day founder Jeremy Gilley

saw the likes of Jude Law and Sean Pertwee come together to celebrate the amazing success of the day. Fishlove: The newly titled Moshimo restaurant Brighton hit the headlines throughout 2012 with their fabulous Fishlove project. In collaboration with the actress Greta Scacchi, Moshimo got the rich and famous to strip off to raise awareness against overfishing. Launched in June 2009, the Fishlove Photographic Project is a series of striking photographs which feature naked celebrities holding dead fish, which were printed in The Sun, The Mirror, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail this year. The Fishlove images were taken by the world-famous fashion photographer Rankin and feature the likes of Jerry Hall, Lizzy Jagger, Sir Ben Kingsley and Mark Foster among many others, cradling everything from fish to crustaceans. An exhibition held at Pertwee Anderson and Gold gallery saw the likes of Olympic swimmer Mark Foster, actress Dakota Blue Richards and model Jade Parfitt pose in front of their fishlove counterparts whilst enjoying Moshimo sushi and Asahi beer. These are only a few of the amazing events we were thrilled to work on in 2012 and by the looks of things 2013 is likely to be even better! Please keep in touch with us on the new year by following us @JBPR_ We look forward to hearing from you!

ELTON JOHN IN BRIGHTON Fitzherberts pub hosted one of the biggest names in pop last month, and that was just at the bar! Elton John surprised locals when he strolled in to watch a small gig by up-and-coming Irish band the Strypes at the small New Road venue. Flanked with his ever-present entourage Elton tried his best to blend in at the 100-capacity gig which showcased the new band which has recently been watched by music greats such as Paul Weller, Miles Kane and Jeff Beck. With an average age of just 15 the Irish lads are certainly breaking boundaries with their mix of 1960s R’n’B covers and self-penned tracks already pulling in crowds as well as TV appearances. Elton’s interest may well have been sparked through their connection to Mercury Records – through which John released his remix album with Pnau, Good Morning To The Night, earlier this year. They look set to make big waves in 2013, and we’ll certainly be following them around as much as possible – if not for the music then at least for their star-studded audiences!

Up the Albion! Mark Brailsford on the FA Cup

T

here used to be a saying in the frozen north in ye olden days: “Are you ‘oop for t’cup?” Then they’d take out t’whippet for a pint of mild and a t’Woodbine before taking t’pigeons for a walk. Please forgive the hackneyed stereotype, there’s a purpose, I promise. As The Albion prepare to face Newcastle United in the third round of the fizzy piss Cup (come on, how can anyone seriously drink this particular sponsor’s beer?) the feeling of anti-climax fizzes more than the FA's preferred beverage. How did this happen? The oldest cup competition in the world, the one game the world used to watch before the advent of the Moneyball...sorry “Champions” League came along and ruined it all. For Albion fans, the cup has a bittersweet memory, those who went to Wembley will never forget it and to this day, the moment Gordon Smith had the goal at his mercy is still being replayed in countless pointless dreams. It was so very special to be in the final of the FA Cup. The Cup Final tradition of singing ‘Abide With Me’ still has the power to reduce grown men (well, me) to tears even now and yet, this dear old competition is shunted around the schedules, stripped of its drama and replays and played out by second-string teams who prefer to chase fourth in the league than win this grand old trophy. Yes, it’s bit of a nostalgia trip, but the debasement of the FA Cup is emblematic of the evolution of the game in this country a lot of it to the detriment of fans. And yet, here it is again, the desecrated old lady of the game, ready to tantalise with her old tricks and upsets. So, to the point? It may be a hackneyed old cliché, the underdog having his day, the prospect for a giant killing, but that’s the thing with with nostalgia, it's not like it used to be.

news New Year, new striker? Photo: Tom Scrace

Following the rearranged Boxing Day fixture versus Millwall, it felt as if Christmas had come early for Millwall as Guy Poyet sent out what could charitably be called, an “experimental” formation. Gus had the wisdom and good grace to accept responsibility as Albion were gifting the game to them in the first half, nicely wrapped in blue and white ribbons. Fortunately, at half time, Mr Poyet rediscovered his inner Grinch (you don’t see them both in the same room, do you?) and performed a football version of that other festive classic, The Great Escape. Once again the misfiring strikers were to the fore, but at least The Albion rescued a point. Samuel Beckett once wrote a play called Waiting For Godot, he must have known what it felt like to wait for the transfer window to open. Words: Mark Brailsford

Albion hero collects award

Brighton Vs Newcastle In the fourth round of the Cup last season the Albion were in the middle of an autumn slump but were buoyed by victory over Premier League opposition in the League Cup (Sunderland) and the fortuitous victory over Newcastle. Alan Pardew, not exactly a favourite in these parts due to his habit of denigrating The Albion in the past and his connections to Our Friends in the North, must be very wary of Gus Poyet's team after that. Even the most ardent Albion fan will admit that Newcastle were unfortunate that night, made even more surprising by the fact that they were in the middle of a fine run in the league at the time. This time around the modern version of the good old “vote of confidence” from board has reared is cursed head, this time in the form of a somewhat surprising tenyear contract. Considering Newcastle’s current poor firm and league position, this is looking like another classic “Looney Toon” moment. If Mr Poyet has somehow managed to land any of his transfer targets by then (Chris Wood anyone?) we could be due for a cup upset. However, the smart money is on the misfiring antics of the usual suspects up front continuing. With a draw about as popular as John Terry at a Brixton gospel meeting, the odds are not in favour of the Albion. But it is the cup and it might be fun to see Pardew’s ever charming snarl at the post-match press conference.

Good at colouring in

I

love my Aunty Betty, but she does have a way with words that, if I did not love her so much, would wrankle. When I graduated from Chelsea School of Art she told my mother that I had “done quite well really, considering I was only good at colouring in”. Over the years I have done a fair amount of “colouring in” in many guises, books, theatre, food... all manner of colouring you might say, but I had until recently forgotten the one thing that got me into all this: drawing. Then I bought an iPad. The iPad opened up a whole new world for me and re-introduced me to drawing with an App called Procreate. I started to draw in it and to paint, slowly at first, stumbling through the program, but gradually gaining confidence and finding my way about. And I really enjoy it, I love getting back to that first love and especially as it is so clean and portable, unlike my much neglected box of watercolours and tube of brushes that languish at the back of a cupboard. I started drawing from life and then capturing scenes on camera as I went about my day to later use as inspiration. It was one

11

such scene that I turned into a painting of the Theatre Royal Brighton where I am a regular reviewer. The Theatre Royal Brighton is one of my favourite buildings in Brighton and it holds so many wonderful memories for me. Over the years I have built a strong bond with the team there, they look after all reviewers so well and we are made to feel welcome (even if we occasionally declare that a show is a resounding flop). Pleased with my Theatre picture I decided to send it to them. They liked it too and when I gifted them the image and said they could do with it what they wished, between us we hatched a plan. Now prints of my impression of the Theatre Royal Brighton are being sold by the Theatre to fund a project to promote young writing talent in Sussex.

“New writing is vital to the future of British theatre, and it is something that I am passionate about” The Theatre is initially selling high quality unframed prints as a limited edition and will then reproduce further copies in postcard size. Proceeds from sales will fund Theatre Royal Brighton Young Playwrights scheme, which the Theatre is running in partnership with New Writing South. The scheme will help foster writing talent among writers aged 16-24 and Latest.TV Brighton will be joint sponsors of the scheme. I captured this view of the exterior of Theatre Royal Brighton before an evening performance. It was a dismal wet autumn evening but the glow from the theatre was filled with promise. I am now delighted that my picture promises to fund an education project for young playwrights. New writing is vital to the future of British theatre, and it is something that I am passionate about. The prints, made on high quality German art paper to archival quality are A3 in size and will be signed and numbered by me. If you would like to buy a limited edition print, priced at £45 each, then contact bridiewilliams@theambassadors.com, 01273 764405, 9.30am–5.30pm Monday to Friday

o you want to be the proud owner of a Michelle Baker, wonderful new body? For people who would before like to lose weight, get fit, and improve their self-confidence whilst having fun, help is at hand from Brighton to Newhaven. For members of local Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Clubs instructor Lesley Jeavons’ classes, this is already happening! “What a busy, successful and eventful 2012 we’ve had!” says local instructor, Lesley. “My members and I have seen so many amazing achievements. “Many have already reached their target weight, with one member Michelle Baker, who has lost an inspirational 4st 1lbs and has dropped an incredible three dress sizes, going from a size 18 to a size 12.” Michelle joined Lesley’s Zumba class in Saltdean as she was feeling frumpy, overweight, unfit and un-sexy. The classes, which include a weigh in, personal chat, motivational talk and exercise session, were exactly what Michelle felt she needed to help her get fit – and at the same time lose weight and tone up. To Michelle’s delight she enjoyed the classes and starting losing weight straight away. “Being overweight was making me feel unhappy. I didn’t like being bigger than friends, having to go to the back of the rail to buy clothes or looking in the mirror and never being happy with what I saw. I joined the Rosemary Conley class because I wanted a group that encouraged exercise too. I had tried losing weight before, but always gave up too soon and never kept the weight off. But I thought this is it – I’m going to do it and stick at it. I now exercise four to five times a week and am fitter and more toned than I have ever been”.

Lesley, who runs 10 classes throughout the week in Brighton, Saltdean and Newhaven says, “It’s amazing what you can achieve with help and support in our classes. We encourage each other’s progress and we are there for each other when support is needed. “I’m so proud of Michelle and it’s been amazing to watch her change shape before my eyes. I lost four stone myself so know what it’s like to be overweight but also how amazing the feeling is to lose it. “I have a job that I love and I am trying to help people to achieve their goals and hopefully change their lives for the better too. The exercise sessions are varied and fun and include aerobics, Zumba, Kardy-O-Fun and toning to name a few. The exercises can be adapted to suit any ability, so even people who have not exercised before can join in and enjoy the classes.” For details of how Lesley can help you to lose weight and get fitter and healthier too, call Lesley Jeavons on 01273 915097 or visit www.rosemaryconley.com

Dear Jacquie Your queries about natural health answered by Jacquie Lane for The College of Naturopathic Medicine Dear Jacquie I think I have IBS. I get embarrassing problems like bloating, wind, and alternating diarrhoea and constipation. What causes it and what can I do? R. O, Brighton The causes of IBS are many and varied. One in five people in the UK are reported as suffering from IBS. Frequently it’s a term given to unexplained digestive conditions. It can be caused or even aggravated by some foods. Stress can also be a major factor. Keeping a food diary for two weeks recording everything that is eaten and drunk and at what times can be useful for analysing repeated triggers. Also record activities that day, including any exercise or stressful events. Having a test for food intolerances can be useful, as can analysing the stools for good and bad bacteria.

Both of these can be organised through Nutritional Therapists. Frequently, I see a lack of the good gut floras Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium in the tests I use for clients, plus an imbalanced stool acid/alkaline level can play a role in causing symptoms similar to yours. Taking supplements of these 2 probiotics can be very useful at balancing good gut flora which also

wave 15 help to push out unwanted bacterial strains. Keeping soluble fibre levels correct by consuming enough vegetables helps, as does drinking spasm calming teas like peppermint or fennel. Psyllium husk is very useful at bulking out the stool and helping balance out both diarrhoea and constipation. It must be taken with enough fluid to enable its action. It’s best not to guess what therapy is best for you. If your GP has ruled out any other condition such as Crohns Disease or colitis, I would recommend getting expert advice from a Nutritional Therapist who can help you target therapy specifically to your individual condition, by finding the cause and not just dealing with the symptoms. Lifestyle advice is crucial for dealing with stressful lifestyles. Ensure you’re getting enough fresh air and relaxation by taking regular walks, especially at lunch time during working days.

• •

t’s time to say goodbye to 2012 and hello to the new year. For some of us, 2013 will involve finally giving up smoking. Yes, cigarettes will most likely be the first thing to quit on many people’s list of New Year’s resolutions. But like many resolutions, the chances of sticking to it as January progresses can wear thin. The stresses of everyday life begin to take their toll and unfortunately we can return to old habits and within no time the cigarettes are back. The thing with giving up smoking is that it’s all in the mind. It requires an immense amount of will power, which for some people can become too much. Research shows that 70 per cent of smokers want to give up, but only 5 per cent actually manage to quit successfully. But it doesn’t have to be as hard. All people really need is support. During October 2012, the NHS launched its mass-quit campaign,

Stoptober, which stated that giving up for 28 days made you five times more likely to quit for good. The campaign turned out to be a huge success and the support of others proved to be a vital part of why people didn’t give in. Choosing to quit in 2013 does not have to be any different to Stobtober. By setting the goal and having support along the way means you are more likely to succeed. And this is true of any resolution. Some people who have been successful quitting smoking have said they replaced the cigarette with something else such as a glass of water. This has proved to work as it take the person’s mind off of having a cigarette and also creates a different association with the feeling of wanting a cigarette. Hypnotherapy and NLP techniques can also be a great way to overcome obstacles and quit the habit

Jonathan Conway, Hypnotherapist and NLP Coach. For more advice call 01273 540425 or 07956 855 027 www.theconwaypractice.co.uk (www.theconwaypractice.co.uk). The most successful quitters have been those on some form of smoking medication, whether it be patches, chewing gum or a prescribed drug. Those people who went ‘cold turkey’ proved to have a lower success rate and increased levels of stress, and returned to smoking far quicker. Smoking is of course a huge health risk, and it is currently the highest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK. So why is it that people smoke in the first place? There will never be a definitive answer to that question,

but stats show that the percentage of the population that smoke has dropped by over 13 per cent in the last 15 years. The warnings are proving to be slowly working. January will undoubtedly consist of New Year’s resolutions that many will not stick to. But instead of deciding to do something unrealistic, try making small tweaks to something in your everyday life, as this is much more likely to result in success. Good luck!

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink Andrew Kay’s first of a two-part Dutch culinary tour takes in Blue Pepper & Senses

Lekker eten M

y annual trip to Holland took place a little later this year but was a bigger gastronomic event than ever with eight days of fabulous food and drink starting in Maastricht and then moving on to Amsterdam. The Maastricht part of the trip was related to International Chef Exchange and you will be able to see that when the hour long TV programme is aired when Latest.TV Brighton goes live next year. How exciting is that? Amsterdam was very much a trip of two parts: food and culture. I stayed at the NH Museum Quarter for the first part, perfectly located for the museums and for the concert hall where I heard a fabulous recital by British pianist Paul Lewis. I changed hotels later in the week and stayed at Hotel Albus, a chic new hotel minutes from the flower market and perfectly placed for most things. That night I had dinner in their restaurant Senses. It’s a small room but the food ideas are big and they pull them off. Passionate about the slow food movement you can sense that much of what the chef is about is great produce treated with respect. I started with a pumpkin soup that was served from a teapot and poured over a prawn wrapped in finely shredded potato then fried. It was heart-warmingly good, rich and delicious. I followed it with a steak tartare. I love steak prepared in this way if it is good, and I was delighted that the

17

steak and all of the seasoning were brought to the table for me to indicate how I would like it. It was stunningly presented, tasted great and came with superb frites, mayonnaise and a Caesar salad worthy of the name. I would have had more but I was pressed for both time and tummy space. But I made up for it the next day at their excellent breakfast buffet. Amsterdam is famous for its Indonesian food and right now the hottest name is Blue Pepper. Blue Pepper takes the flavours and concepts of Indonesia but gives them a European twist. I started with a sweet dumpling with chilli sauce which was quickly followed by three plump scallops with a satay style dressing made of Macadamia nuts, heavenly, and a salad of seaweed. There was also a fine powder that I could not identify but would happily eat my own body weight of. Next came a spicy broth, the only truly fiery dish of the menu, with a piece of poached perch lurking in its depths, stunning stuff. Then venison satay with pomegranate and apple salad, deep flavours balanced by crisp fresh ones. This was followed by three perfect lamb cutlets cooked with lily flowers and served with courgettes and ribbons of crispy fried sweet potato. Now lily flowers were a first for me and I can’t wait to have them again, a strange bitter floral flavour that was rather moreish. Dessert was a plate of mango ribbons served with a cointreau dipping sauce and three sorbets, a stunning lime, a delicious rose and a quite extraordinary beer sorbet. I loved Blue Pepper to bits, delicious food and charming service Blue Pepper, Nassaukade 366, Amsterdam, +31 (0) 20 489 7039 Senses at Hotel Albus, Vijzelstraat 49, +31 (0)20 530 62 00 With thanks to Visit Holland www.holland.com and Rail Europe www.raileurope.co.uk

Light bites Strange Fruit No not me, don’t be rude. This is Baobab Fruit Powder form Minvita and was one of the culinary offerings to arrive on my desk in December. Billed as the superfood of 2013 I was intrigued, especially as the claims made for it are pretty impressive. Supporting the immune system and a healthy digestion, whilst also maintaining strong bones, a healthy heart and lowering cholesterol; the remedial properties of the Baobab fruit are the stuff of African legend – well, it has to be tried! This superfruit from the African Baobab tree contains six times more vitamin C than oranges, twice as many antioxidants than gojiberries, six times more potassium than bananas and more iron than spinach and red meat, no mean feat for a sprinkling of fruit powder! It is pale in colour and can be easily added to any meal to boost its nutritional profile, maximising the pick-meup potential of anything

from a mid-day snack, to home baking. It can also be added to smoothies, yoghurts and cereals, or stirred into a glass of juice or water. Better still, why not add it to the mix when you are making cakes, flapjacks or bread! And now for the science... Baobab Key Facts 1 Oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of Baobab is 250 per gram compared with blueberries at just 46 per gram 2 There is 300mg of vitamin C in Baobab per 100g whilst an orange contains 50mg approx 3 Cow’s milk provides 120mg of calcium per 100g compared to 350mg in Baobab 4 There is around 422mg of potassium in one medium banana and a whopping 2500mg in Baobab per 100g 5 Baobab is packed with fibre containing 60g of soluble and insoluble fibre per 100g 6 100g of lean red meat contains 1.8mg of iron which is less than that found in Baobab But does it count as one of my five a day?

BIG BANG!

EDWYN COLLINS & SPECIAL GUESTS

STOMP – THE LOST AND FOUND ORCHESTRA Concert Hall, Brighton Dome, 20 December 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪

F

rom the (busking) streets of Brighton to the Olympic Stadium, it’s been an incredible journey for Stomp founders Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas; small fortunes have been made with an idea that apparently came about as a result of seeing the Drummers of Burundi carrying their drums on their heads... the formula hasn’t changed much: bang, brush, whirl, squeeze, push and pull all manner of ‘instruments’ that are often recycled from household items. But it’s a successful formula; light-hearted, good natured, and a chance to see pitch-perfect performance/street art performed in the wonderful atmospherics of Brighton Dome. The Lost & Found Orchestra is basically a piece of musical theatre, with a number of ‘songs’ acted out by a large ensemble of mainly Brighton-based characters, most if not all great musicians in their own right. The players, with Cresswell often at the centre of the action as de facto conductor, moved very fluidly around a multi-layered set. Without words (at least until a choir appeared for the last 10 minutes), and with no discernible plot, it was a joyful, often comedic, sometimes riotous, and always engaging piece that works because of the strength of the compositions, the movement of all the performers, the intricate and eye-catching staging and the overall pace of the show which flowed like a symphony does; from pastoral and ambient moments, to passages of thunder and great energy. Musically touching on multi-faceted rhythms of the world but also, for this reviewer, the hobo carnivalesque sounds of Tom Waits circa Swordfishtrombone/Rain Dogs, it works very well as just music. But as part of a greater whole, it’s magical. Jeff Hemmings

MARTHA REEVES & THE VANDELLAS

Time catches up with all of us eventually, and at the age of 71 it was inevitable that Martha Reeves wasn’t going to be quite as impressive as in her ‘60s heyday. But while the Motown legend’s voice may now lack some of the punch of her prime, her energy and stagecraft were as captivating as ever. Mixing all her classic hits with a selection B-sides, lesser-known tracks and Christmas songs, Reeves and her impressive backing band produced an engaging and entertaining performance, full of warmth, fun and good oldfashioned soul. Concorde 2, 18 Dec 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Adam Lindsay

JEFF WAYNE’S WAR OF THE WORLDS

A true phenomenon ever since the original album was released back in 1978, H.G. Wells’ War Of The Worlds resonates very deeply with us; the central plot involving the invasion of Earth by Martians, the nearcleansing of the planet’s Did you disagree with our verdict on any of these shows?

inhabitants, and the unexpected light at the end of tunnel (whereby the Martians literally catch a cold) is akin to an actual nightmare but with a happy ending. But while the original novel, Orson Welles’s legendary ‘30s radio broadcast and Spielberg’s recent film version are all highly taut, scary affairs, Jeff Wayne’s musical theatre version cannot help but be a little more easy on the senses. With a new allstar cast that includes credible performances by Ricky Wilson (Kaiser Chiefs), Marti Pellow and, best of all, Jason Donovan, plus an orchestra and a band (featuring Chris Spedding and Herbie Flowers amongst others), the story is overseen by virtual actor Liam Neeson, who has admirably taken on the role originally voiced by Richard Burton, succeeding in imparting the right gravitas and tone throughout. The music, despite a few modern tweaks, remains largely as it always was; a creature of ‘70s progressive rock, but still packing a punch. Brighton Centre, 17 December 2012 ✪✪✪✪✪ Jeff Hemmings

MUSIC: SEA MONSTERS 3 The annual music festival returns to the Prince Albert

S

ea Monsters is the annual compilation and music festival, organised by One Inch Badge (OIB), a local promotions company who also have artists under management, a booking agency and a label. Ostensibly existing to ‘celebrate and promote our favourite local acts'’ they have also sourced plenty of up and coming talent. The result a seven-day orgy of some of the best local talent, all at the Prince Albert. This year OIB have partnered each night with local music institutions such as Teen Creeps, Love Thy Neighbour, Source Magazine, Bizarro World, and Slip Jam B. And like the previous two incarnations of Sea Monsters, there’ll be an accompanying compilation CD featuring all the acts performing this year, which will be released in April. As alway, there is a wide array of acts, further confirming Brighton as a ridiculously fertile ground for new music; from the theatrical splendour of Written In Waters, to the percussive indie soul of one woman cellist Abi Wade; from the country-rock tinged Holy Vessels to the incredible progressive math rockers The Physics House Band; and from the glacial textures of Phoria to the psychobilly grunge inspired The Witches, Sea Monsters presents an opportunity to see some truly inventive and original music, all emanating from Brighton. Discounted week passes are available, the purchase of which includes a free copy of Seas Monsters 3, and tickets obtained form Resident Records means you'll get a free copy of previous compilations, Sea Monsters 1 or 2.

WHAT’S ON COMEDY&FILM

COMEDY: JIMMY CARR – GAGGING ORDER The big comic with the big face plays the big room at the Brighton Dome to see in the New Year

J

ames Anthony Patrick Carr is a comedy force to be reckoned with. He tours non-stop all year, taking off only five weeks before he’s off on the road again. Add to this his hosting duties on Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, the odd guest spot on somebody else’s panel show on radio and TV, plus the occasional acting role, and writing a couple of books, it’s a surprise he has the time to write a brand new show every year – but he does. And garners plenty of rave reviews for them each time they’re released to the public and the critics. As much as it’s easy to begrudge the class swot, Jimmy Carr is the comedic workaholic who wins you round. Comedy is a cut-throat industry and as much as everybody loves a nice guy you have to make people laugh – continuously – to stick around in this industry. And (I have been reliably informed) he’s also a nice guy. With a penchant for saying funny, rude things. Jimmy Carr’s playful nature with the line of good taste has won him legions of fans, skipping back and forth over it. He’s gone on record as saying his favourite sound is a belly laugh followed by the gasp of realisation you get with a very funny joke that the laughee suddenly realises they possibly shouldn’t be laughing at. However, his delivery and degree of likability stops him from receiving too many of those letters and outraged editorials some other boundary-probing comics are currently prone to receiving. Suffice to say, if you’re looking to battle those New Year blues a trip to see Dr Jimmy could be just the ticket to snap you out of the doldrums. Original and sharp as ever, Mr Carr is a treat to brighten up the chills. Concert Hall, Brighton Dome, Saturday 26 January, 8pm, £25.

COMEDY: KRATER COMEDY CLUB Eat, drink, watch and laugh as three top stand-ups and one of the best MCs on the comedy circuit entertain you. All weekend you can see Steve Harris and The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Revue, with Mike Gunn completing the line-up on Friday and James Dowdeswell taking the third spot on Saturday night. Proceedings are hosted by the lovely Sully O’Sullivan. Komedia, Fri 4 Jan (8pm) and Sat 5 Jan (7pm), £16.50/13.50 & £22 FILM: THE IMPOSSIBLE (12A) Dir: Juan Antonio Bayona From the emerging Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona comes this story, based on true events, starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as holidaying parents whose family is caught up in the terrifying events of 2004’s Southeast Asia tsunami.

STARS | TV

STARS With Val Aviv

★ARIES {Mar 21–Apr 20}

You’re going to thrive on a new sense of popularity as many more people are open to spending time in your company as are you in theirs. It’s all about ‘the mind’ and it’s therefore your brain you must employ in the pursuit of dreams. Follow what seems logical no matter how eccentric.

★TAURUS {Apr 21–May 21}

News from abroad travels fast and in light of new realisations, your understanding of the world deepens. The possibility for transformation is now not something which you dread, but relish. There are finances available to support you.

★GEMINI {May 22–June 21}

Grave letters or words may be spoken, but don’t shoot the messenger! Just as everything that twinkles isn’t always gold, so too can dusty old antiques be well worth their weight. Take the time to probe into important matters with patience.

★CANCER {June 22–July 22}

A partner has something important they need to communicate with you, or perhaps you have been holding back for too long. To speak your truth may cause disruptions, but you have to be willing to face the music, in order to not betray your own soul.

★LEO {July 23–Aug 22}

Are partners serious? Is there really any need for them to be right? If you have these thoughts, then you must ask if it is not your mind which has become poisoned by the standing waters. Being too inflexible is more than unagreeable, it’s boring, is it not? Go on, turn that frown on its head.

★VIRGO {Aug 23–Sep 22}

Playing love games may well keep you occupied, amused and in control, but there are more productive uses of your prowess and creative flair. Remember words are like magic and being integral with your word will not compromise you or the trust others place in you.

★LIBRA {Sep 23–Oct 22}

You’ve got a springy Joie de Vivre air about you as this week’s go-getting Mars helps you express the desires you are most passionate about. Don’t be on too much of a quest for perfection, as that’s a concept everyone could do without.

★SCORPIO {Oct 23–Nov 21}

The short term picture might look a little like this: a gloomy frost-bitten dried up old shrubbery left for decay on the side of a dreary road. While it’s not the most glamorous act in the play, this current process is so essential. Think long term and daily nuances could turn magically fertile.

★SAGITTARIUS {Nov 22–Dec 20}

You’ve taken on board some serious issues of late, it will be possible to earn more than a mere crust by becoming a messenger for some of life’s more challenging subjects. Depth psychology or occult sciences may appeal.

★CAPRICORN {Dec 21–Jan 19}

If there’s something you want to get off your chest, why wait? Both quick-thinking Mercury and the expressive and fun-loving Sun are passing through your sign to help you firm up your personal sense of identity.

★AQUARIUS {Jan 20–Feb 19}

What you have, others wish they had. Please don’t ask ‘What do I have?’ How very infuriating it will be for all your admirers. You have the kind of energy that can become inflamed by personal passions, so get busy or else you will feel terribly frustrated.

★PISCES {Feb 20–Mar 20}

While finances and fortunes are on the turn under Uranus’s precarious influence, it can’t be predictable, but it can be interesting. Your love of shared knowledge could help you meet some business savvy people. An avalanche of existential thoughts will domino and possibly alter your values.

thursday 3 Celebrity Big Brother: Live Launch Channel Five, 9pm New year, new celebrities in captivity! For those not so enamored with creepy crawlies but happy with the lack of privacy, it’s the natural follower to I’m A Celebrity... This time with running water and central heating. Brian Dowling and Emma Willis do the hosting.

Trouble Abroad ITV1, 9pm The first of a two-part programme looking at how the Brit dream of a life abroad sometimes doesn’t live up to the sunny fantasy. Shot on location in Florida, Spain and France, this looks at some of the horror stories of how things can go wrong through divorce, bad health and lost investments. There’s no place like home.

Bad Education BBC3, 9pm, 9.30pm, 10pm Since Jack Whitehall scooped up that comedy gong last year you may want to re-examine his TV oeuvre. Voila a triple bill of the school-based sitcom in which he not only stars but also does a spot of writing too. Is there no end to this man’s talents? Adventures include a field trip and being the supply PE teacher.
