Twenty-four killed as tornado hits Oklahoma

At least seven children were among the dead and scores were injured when a giant tornado tore through Oklahoma City suburbs on Monday.

Worst hit was Moore, south of the city, where neighbourhoods were flattened and schools destroyed by winds of up to 200mph. About 120 people are being treated in hospitals. President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster in Oklahoma. He also ordered the federal authorities to join in the search and recovery efforts which are continuing throughout the night.

Monday's twister hit Moore, a suburb of about

55,000 people, and remained on the ground for about 45 minutes. The Oklahoma chief medical examiner's office said at least seven children were among the 24 confirmed dead at press time. Plaza Towers Elementary school took a direct hit: the storm tore off the building's roof and knocked down walls.

"The school was flattened. The walls were pancaked in," Oklahoma's Lt Gov Todd Lamb told reporters. "There's still roughly two dozen

children that are missing. There have been some bodies recovered from that school and it's absolutely horrific and devastating."

Another school – Briarwood Elementary – was also damaged, and teachers were later seen leading pupils out to safety.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said Monday's tornado had generated winds of up to 200mph."It's certainly the most powerful tornado

They’re not asking for something for nothing–you’ll get a great night out while helping him too with many of the coast’s entertainers giving their time and talents free. Enjoy!

But Betsy Randolph of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol told local news station Skynews 9 that the damage on Monday appeared to exceed that of the 1999 tornado. Tornadoes, hail and high winds also hit Iowa and Kansas, part of a storm system stretching from Texas to Minnesota.

On Sunday, a tornado smashed a trailer park on Highway 102 near Shawnee, Oklahoma. Oklahoma's state medical examiner confirmed earlier on Monday that two people had been killed in the area.



Tornadoes are among the most violent storms on Earth, with the potential to cause very serious damage. Although no two tornadoes are the same, they need certain conditions to form – particularly intense or unseasonable heat. As the ground temperature increases, moist air heats and starts to rise. When the warm, moist air meets cold dry air, it explodes upwards, puncturing the layer above. A thunder cloud may begin to build. A storm quickly develops – there may be rain, thunder and

National News Government targets municipalities

Reforming local governments is the next step in the central government's plans to save money, starting with a reduction in the salary of local government workers.

Finance Minister Hacienda Cristóbal Montoro has calculated that this will save €870 million a year. The country's 8,116 ayuntamientos employ 526,248 people, according to figures for February this year – of whom 190,160 are elected officials and 304,005 belong to the work force. Another 32,074 people are employed with different types of contracts. The government's plan to

eliminate local council in towns with populations of less than 20,000 has met with fierce opposition from the Spanish Federation of Municipalities but nevertheless the government has decided to go ahead with the plan. A spokesman said only 8 per cent of towns with fewer than 5,000 inhabitants and 40 per cent of those with between 5,000 and 30,000 inhabitants are efficient. Local councils saw the writing on the wall and began making cuts even before the Partido Popular won the election in November 2011.

As a result, there was a 12 per cent reduction of staff between July 2011

and July 2012, basically through eliminating contracts for services with private companies. By the end of last year, 4,623 councils ended the financial year with a surplus in their coffers, 600 more than in 2009. The government is expected to reveals more details about how its plans to make more councils more economically viable shortly.

Not under pressure? While the Unified Association of the Guardia Civil (AUGC) continues to insist that it has received reports from Guardia in all sectors – not just traffic – that they have been threatened by their superiors if they do not issue more fines, the government categorically denies that pressure is being brought to bear on them. La Sexta television channel reported months ago that a Guardia in Andalusia had told their reporter that he and his fellow Guardia were being pressured to issue a minimum of 50 fines

ranging from €800 to €2,000 a month if they wanted to collect their productivity bonus, which ranges from €100 to €300. Those who fail to meet the target are forced to ask for a transfer. The director of the Guardia has denied that such a plan exists but the AUGC says it receives reports every month from Guardia agents, especially those on traffic duty, who say that it does. Meanwhile, the Guardia Civil reports that agents who do not "savagely" increase the number of fines a month have €200 docked from their pay.

Syrian opposition meets in Madrid

King gives up luxury yacht

The main Syrian opposition groups have met in Madrid in an attempt to find a credible and internationally acceptable solution to the civil war.

King Juan Carlos has renounced the use of his luxury yacht, which costs the taxpayer €25,000 to refuel, as the royal family's most recent contribution to the austerity cuts affecting millions of Spaniards. The 35-ton vessel "Fortuna" was bought for the King's use in 2000 by a group of businesses on the Balearic Islands, where the Royal family have their summer palace and spend several weeks a year on holiday.

The yacht, which cost €21 million, was the last of several that had played host to visiting dignitaries including the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1990. For the last 12 years the Fortuna has provided thousands of photo opportunities, with the king at the helm of the 136-foot motor yacht cruising around the waters off Majorca while various members of his family took the sun on its deck. The yacht was one of the King's most prized possessions but he decided

to give it up amid growing resentment at the privileges enjoyed by the elite in a country where millions of poorer people are suffering serious economic hardship.

A spokesman for the Royal Palace announced last week: ”The King has taken the decision to ask the National Heritage to proceed with the release of the asset.” A source inside the palace said: "It wasn't something he felt comfortable with any longer.”

Some 86 members of opposition groups participated in the twoday Meeting for National Syrian Consultation, which was sponsored by the Spain's Foreign Ministry. The groups attending the meeting included the Free Syrian Army, which coordinates rebel actions in the country, and radical Islamist militias, led by the Al-Nusra Front.

However, Foreign Minister José Manuel García-Margallo said that the factions attending the meeting represent the more moderate sector of the opposition. The supply of arms to the rebels is

currently blocked and military intervention vetoed by China and Russia.

One of the objects of the Madrid meeting is to give Brussels new guarantees ahead of a May 31st debate on lifting the arms embargo. Spain has supplied €4.7 million in humanitarian aid since the rebellion of March 2011 and the subsequent

civil war. The government has maintained communication with the opposition in exile and groups within Syria that propose a political transition without AlAssad but with some members of the existing apparatus.

Hotel refuses guests Heavy hail storm causes with Down syndrome massive pile-up A Down syndrome association has filed a complaint against the Hotel CaboGata Plaza Suites in Almería for refusing to admit a group of young people because “this kind of people could bother the other clients”.

The hotel's management has already issued an apology and claimed it was “a misunderstanding”. The case is being investigated by the Almería public attorney’s office. Under the Penal Code, denying people a service they are entitled to because of their disability constitutes an offence that can lead to one to four years of professional disqualification. A spokesman for the Down España association said: “We didn’t go public with this to show that we are being victimized, but for educational purposes.” He said a worker at Down Almería had asked a travel agency to ask three hotels for a quote.

But one of the hotels, the CaboGata Plaza Suites, had replied: “We don’t accept groups of people with mental disabilities.”

When Down Almería contacted management directly, the latter not only confirmed the statement, but added that “this kind of people could bother the other clients in the hotel,” something that had “already happened in the past”.

The spokesman recalled two other cases in which young people with Down syndrome were barred entry: one was a nightclub in Sabadell last March and the other was a pub in Alicante in 2010. The owner of the latter lost his licence a year later. In 2009, a parish priest refused to give a child from Teià (Barcelona) her first communion because she was “already God’s angel”.

A hail storm on Sunday caused a massive pile-up involving more than 50 vehicles on the A-1 outside Honrubia de la Cuesta in Segovia province. Thirteen people were injured – one seriously – but, fortunately, no-one was killed.

The accident occurred at 7 pm when many day trippers were on their way home. The pile-up was worse on the Burgosbound lane of the A-1, affecting some 40 vehicles. On April 30th, a hail storm along the same stretch of road caused five separate accidents involving a total of around 60 vehicles, in which more than 20 people were injured. The Traffic Authority

has advised drivers caught in hail storms to reduce speed to a maximum of 60 kph to reduce the risk of pile-ups.

Unseasonal weather Meanwhile the weathermen say that temperatures should start getting back to normal on Wednesday, May 22nd, signalling an end to the unseasonal cold and rainy weather that has affected the country, especially the northern half. They said the rise in temperature would be small to start with – some 2 to 4 degrees in most of the country – but the rainy and windy weather would begin abating to make way for more seasonal sun and warmth by the weekend, especially in Andalusia.

First trade surplus in 40 years

the economy Ministry has reported the country's first monthly trade surplus for more than 40 years. Normally seen as a positive development, the surplus actually points to a huge slump in imports, rather than any bounce back in economic activity. the surplus of €634.9 million in March reflects a 15 per cent plunge in imports, compared with the same month last year. Spain, which is the eurozone's fourth-largest economy, has not recorded a monthly trade surplus since 1971. Spanish exports to other european Union members fell by 8.1per cent in March, but overall exports grew by 2 per cent to €20.2 billion. the economy Ministry said this was because Spain was "continuing its process of re-orientating its sales to other markets where the economic outlook is more favourable, such as the Middle east, africa and United States."


EU subsidies fund bullfighting

a recent study by Spanish MePs has shown that "Common agriculture Policy" payments worth more than $130 million a year are given to Spanish farmers using their pastures to rear fighting bulls. the study concluded, "without such backing bullfighting would probably be on the brink of financial collapse". Catalan MeP Raul Romeva, who was involved in carrying out the research, has protested to the european Commission over the use of farm subsidies to support a blood sport that is declining in popularity. "it is unacceptable that eU funds continue to be used to prop up this brutal practice, which flies in the face of eU commitments on animal welfare," he said. Spain’s parliament is currently debating a new law which would declare bullfighting a protected national pursuit, a move that would overturn existing bans on bullfighting in the Canary islands and Catalonia and would guarantee public subsidies for the industry.

President Barack Obama praised the Burmese President for his leadership in moving his country towards political and economic reform on Monday, after Thein Sein became the first Burmese leader to visit the White House since 1966.

For the first time, Mr Obama called the country Myanmar, the name adopted by its military rulers in 1989. Whitehouse spokesman Jay Carney said the US was using Burma's official name, Myanmar, more frequently "as a courtesy in

appropriate settings".

three Brazilian were killed and more than 20 other people were injured on Monday after two hot-air balloons collided in Cappadocia, a region popular with tourists for its spectacular volcanic rock formations. Ballooning has become a popular tourist business in the region over the past decade.

Mr Obama said the US appreciated the Burmese leader's efforts "in leading Myanmar in a new direction", but expressed "deep concern" at violence against the Muslim ethnic minority in Burma. Speaking later at Johns Hopkins university in Washington, Thein Sein said: "Periods of transition are always fraught with risk. But I know how much my people want to see democracy take root." he said. Referring to the recent anti-Muslim violence in

Burma, he said: "We must end all forms of discrimination and ensure not only that intercommunal violence is brought to a halt, but that all perpetrators are brought to justice."

Human rights groups have voiced concerns about serious anti-Muslim violence in Burma in recent months, and have accused Mr Obama of moving too quickly to rehabilitate Burma as it emerges from decades of military rule.

Court overturns North Korea frees Chinese fishing crew genocide conviction

A Chinese fishing crew seized by North Koreans two weeks ago has been freed along with their boat, China's Xinhua news agency reported on Monday. The 16-man crew was taken captive by unidentified North Koreans in the Yellow Sea on May 5th and China had been negotiating with Pyongyang for their release since May 10th. Xinhua reported that "all were safe on their way back". Boat owner Yu Xuejun told reporters the

North Koreans had been demanding a 600,000 yuan (£66,000) ransom, But on Monday he received a call from the ship captain at 03:50 am telling him they had already been released. "There were no conditions and they didn't take any money," he said.

China is North Korea's biggest trading partner and closest ally, but ties between the two have chilled since North Korea's third nuclear test on February 12th.

Guatemala's constitutional court has overturned former military leader Efrain Rios Montt's conviction for genocide and crimes against humanity overturned and ruled that the trial must go back to where it stood on April 19th and restart from that point.

The ruling follows an appeal by General Rios Montt's defence lawyers, who argued that procedural errors had been committed. On May 10th, General Rios Montt

was convicted of ordering the deaths of 1,771 people of the Ixil Maya ethnic group during his time in office in 1982-83. The 86year-old was sentenced to 80 years in prison.

General Rios Montt became the first former leader to be found guilty of genocide by a national tribunal. An estimated 200,000 people were killed in Guatemala's 1960-1996 civil war, the vast majority of them being indigenous Mayans.

Dissident pleads for relatives in China

Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who fled to the US last year, has said he thinks Washington should do more to protect the relatives he left behind in China. Mr Chen caused a diplomatic row between the US and China when he escaped house arrest and sought refuge in the American embassy in Beijing. He was eventually allowed to settle in new York with his immediate family. But he said relatives he left behind had been subjected to "systematic persecution" by the authorities. Mr Chen, who exposed forced abortions and sterilisations in his home province of Shandong, said he felt let down by both the Chinese and American governments. AzERBAIjAn

‘Nul’ Eurovision points probed

President Ilham Aliyev has ordered an inquiry into why his country gave Russia "nul points" at Saturday's Eurovision Song Contest. Voters and the official Azerbaijan jury in fact gave 10 points to the Russian entry, officials said.

Azerbaijan's state broadcaster suggested there may have been voting violations. Russia gave the maximum 12 points to Azerbaijan's entry – a ballad by Farid Mammadov – which came second behind winner Emmelie de Forest from Denmark. Azerbaijan's ambassador to Russia said President Aliyev had ordered a recount. Azerbaijan, which hosted last year's contest, has traditionally tried to maintain good relations with Moscow.

Agency targeted Powerball winner as 'foreign agents' yet to come forward The head of Russia's only independent polling agency, Levada Centre, has said it could be forced to close after a warning from officials that it had to obey a controversial new law. Prosecutors said the centre had to register as a "foreign agent" because it was involved in political activity and received foreign funding. Despite pressure, Russia's most prominent human rights and civil society groups have all refused to register as foreign agents.

In a statement, Levada Centre head Lev Gudkov said prosecutors had not only threatened the organisation with sanctions but had undermined its authority: "The warning puts the Yuri Levada Analytical Centre in an extremely difficult position, in effect forcing it to cease its activity as an independent sociological research organisation, carrying out systematic polls of public opinion in Russia."

Mr Gudkov went on to add that foreign funding amounted to only 1.5–3% of the centre's budget each year.

The law requires the phrase "foreign agents" to be included in all materials produced by all affected NGOs. They would also have to undergo financial audits and issue twice-yearly reports on their activities. The authorities say the law is needed to protect Russia from outside attempts to influence internal politics, but critics say it could be used to prevent NGOs denouncing vote-rigging and other abuses. The



agent" carries a Soviet-era negative taint in Russia, suggesting spying. Failure to comply with the legislation is punishable by heavy fines or even a two-year prison sentence.

Last month the election watchdog NGO Golos became the first organisation to be fined under the new law. Last September, USAID was expelled from Russia after being accused of attempting to "influence political processes through its grants", which had totalled $3 billion.

The small Florida town of Zephyrhills is still waiting for the winner of the largest Powerball lottery jackpot in US history – more than $590m (£388m) – to come forward. After taxes, the jackpot will bring the winner around $377m.

Officials said the winning ticket was sold on Saturday or earlier at a Publix grocery store in the town, home to about 13,000 people. The former farming town 30 miles north-east of Tampa is best known around the state for its brand of spring water of the same name.

Florida lottery winners cannot stay anonymous,

but have up to 60 days to claim the prize. Forty-two US states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands participate in the Powerball lottery. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 175 million, and the jackpot is 12 times the size of Zephyrhills' annual town budget. Florida

lottery officials were not surprised that no-one has claimed the prize yet. "It never happens this quickly," lottery spokesman David Bishop said. "If they know they won, they're going to contact their attorney or an accountant first so they can get their affairs in order."

European Parliament debates tax evasion

The European Parliament met on Monday to debate ways to tackle tax evasion, ahead of an EU summit on the issue.

Religious bigotry increasing worldwide Discrimination against Jews and Muslims is on the rise around the world, according to an annual US Department of State report.

The findings for 2012 spoke of an increase in anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe and Asia. It also said there was growing anti-Semitism, especially in Venezuela, Egypt and Iran. As he unveiled the International Religious Freedom Report on Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry appointed a new special envoy on anti-Semitism.

Ira Foreman was named to replace Michael Kozak in the role, which was first created in 2004. The report said Muslims

faced new restrictions in Belgium, which had banned face-covering religious attire in classrooms. The report also raised concern at the restricting of headscarves in schools in Mangalore, India. The report also highlighted the targeting of Islamic minorities in majority Muslim countries.

Mr Kerry said the findings also pointed to a rise in apostasy laws, which he said were frequently used to repress dissents or settle personal vendettas.

The report cites the example of a mentally disabled Christian girl who was jailed for over a

month in Pakistan on blasphemy charges until she was freed amid domestic and international condemnation.

As he unveiled the report in Washington DC, Mr Kerry acknowledged that America's own record was not perfect, but said religious freedom was a "universal value". "The freedom to profess and practise one's faith – to believe or not to believe, or to change one's beliefs – that is a birthright of every human being," he said. "I urge all countries – especially those identified in this report – to take action now to safeguard this fundamental freedom."

The EU says member states lose €1 trillion (£0.85 trillion) a year via tax evasion, seven times the EU budget. MEPs called for a series of measures, including a blacklist of tax havens, a system of automatic exchange of banking information, and for resources to be channelled into the prosecution of tax evaders and recovering lost revenue.

The debate came a day after UK Prime Minister David Cameron urged British overseas territories which operate low-tax regimes to "get their house in order" and sign up to international treaties on

tax. The UK is also expected to push for tighter tax measures at the G8 summit in June.

Europe's cash-strapped governments cannot afford to lose a single penny in tax revenue, let alone the €1trillion a year it believes is disappearing into offshore tax havens. On Wednesday, an EU summit will discuss the problem.

Non-EU member Switzerland is expected to come under pressure to put in place new rules. Last week EU finance ministers agreed to start talks with Switzerland, along with Liechtenstein,

Monaco, Andorra and San Marino, on swapping bank account information. Attempts to tighten up on tax evasion follow a furore in Greece over the socalled Lagarde list, containing the names of more than 2,000 Greeks including senior politicians with Swiss bank accounts. More recently, France's Socialist government was hit by a scandal, as former Budget Minister Jerome Cahuzac was forced to resign over tax fraud allegations. He later admitted that he had hidden about €600,000 in a Swiss bank account.

for tax evasion.



A G8 summit in June is expected to see a push for tighter tax measures and Mr Cameron has urged dependencies to get their houses in order.

Those who have received the letter are Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands,

Gibraltar, Anguilla, Montserrat, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Some have become major centres for international business, but Mr Cameron has told them “lower taxes are only sustainable if what is owed is actually paid.”

The prices being asked by people selling their houses in Britain have risen this year, indicating a return of confidence to the housing market. There were new record asking prices in London, the South East and East Anglia, pushing average prices up to £249,841. It is the strongest start to a year since 2004, with average asking prices rising by 9.1 per cent in

2013 so far. The report by Rightmove adds to several studies which have pointed to increased seller confidence as buyers find mortgages easier to obtain.

Barbara was on TV at the time being interviewed about all she had lost and she mentioned that one of her prayers had been that her little dog would be found OK. With that, the interviewer said “Hello puppy”, and there’s was Barbara’s dog peering out from between some metal sheets. The sheets were lifted and owner and dog re-united.

MP’s want more

Members of Parliament in Britain should get a pay rise of between £10,000 and £20,000 a year according to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, although the rise would be offset by lower expenses and a loss of pension rights. MPs believe they should receive around £86,000 rather than £66,000. There are fears that poor remuneration could prevent some individuals capable of making a valuable contribution from pursuing a career in politics. The proposals are to be considered next month.

Fourteen unseen Salvador Dali paintings surface Surreal, sinister and erotically charged compositions are amongst a hoard of Dali works worth close to £1million according to London auctioneers Bonham’s.

Fourteen original Salvador Dali watercolour fruit studies, unseen until now, will be sold at their Impressionist and Modern Art sale in London on 18th June. Commissioned in 1969, the paintings have been in private hands since their creation. Each painting is valued at £40,000 – £70,000 and the series is expected to make close to £1million.

Dali was surrealism’s most exotic and relentlessly popular figure. His eccentric, attention grabbing behaviour was arguably the product of an abnormal childhood. The artist had an older brother, also named Salvador, who had died almost exactly 9 months before Dali’s birth. Aged five, he was taken to the grave and told that he was a reincarnation. “We resembled each other like two drops of water, but we had different reflections.” Dali said of his deceased brother. “He was probably a first version of myself but conceived too much in the absolute.” In his own eyes, Dali was a distorted version of his elder sibling.

This series of fourteen paintings show Dali’s desire to take the ordinary and subvert it. Dali’s obsession with a warped, sinister version of life is perhaps rooted in his own history. He is quoted, “I myself am surrealism.” In the ‘FruitDali’ series the artist appropriates very traditional nineteenth century botanical lithographs, designed as scientific illustrations, and paints over them with his characteristically fantastic embellishments.

At first glance, one could mistake the paintings for conventional decorative prints. A closer inspection of the fruit series reveals a Chapman brothers-style perversion of reality that predates the cutting-edge British

artists by thirty years. The fruit and flower studies take on an anthropomorphic quality. The figure of Monsieur Hasty Plum sprints across the page on his branch and blossom legs, while Erotic Grapefruit sends a leaf figure flailing on its back with a shower of juice.

William O’Reilly, Director of Bonhams Impressionist department said of the works, “These compositions are a fabulous illustration of Dali’s artistic approach. By overlaying such traditional images with his famous artistic vocabulary of dragons, hooded figures, crutches and weeping eyes, he gives us an insight into his own hyper-fertile imagination. But most of all, these beautifully fresh images show Dali enjoying himself, poking fun at the demons and fairies lurking behind the straight-laced images of the 19th century science.” Dali declared, “I see the human form in trees, animals: the animal and vegetable in the human. My art shows the metamorphosis that takes place.” information supplied by Bonham’s Auctioneers

Local News Lucrative trade in fighting cocks

Cock fighting has been banned in Spain since 2003 but the breeders are making a nice profit out of exporting the birds to countries when the fight is still allowed, such as Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.

It is so lucrative – a good bird can fetch up to $1,000 – that the breeders have formed the Andalusian Federation of Spanish Fighting Cocks, although the birds are called gallo jerezano (from Jerez de la Frontera) in South America. To ensure the fighting quality of the birds, the breeders have formed clubs, or peñas, which meet in closed spaces


approved by the Federation to "test" the birds. These meetings frequently turn into illegal cock fights, but the authorities tend to turn a blind eye because Andalusia's Animal Protection Law has a clause that excludes fighting cocks, obtained under pressure from the Federation. It is calculated that currently there are some 100,000 fighting cocks in Andalusia, 90 per cent of them on farms near Jerez or Seville.

The Federation is planning to build a research and breeding centre near Sanlucar de Barrameda, which has the highest number of Federation members,

some 4,000. While the Federation is trying to keep the project well within the law, it is being opposed by animal protection societies across the region.

One weapon in the latter's favour is that cock fighting attracts unsavoury characters prone to brawling while under the influence of drink or drugs. It is now up to Sanlucar's town council to decide whether to run the risk of allowing the centre to be built there, because it could have a negative impact on tourism – especially on foreigners who on the whole oppose cock fighting.

However, it was pointed out to him that it was that same EU which has injected more than €70,000 million into Andalusia over the past 20 years via the so-called Community Support Frameworks (CSF), aimed at helping backward regions catch up with the rest of the EU.

A spokesman for World Sherry Day said: “It’s inspiring to have connected with people from so many different countries who are equally passionate about the world of Sherry. The global Sherry movement is certainly thriving, and full of a wonderfully creative – and diverse – array of people.

To be able to bring this community together globally to celebrate is both exciting and just brilliant.” Participating countries include the US, the UK, Germany, Japan, Poland, Mexico, the Faroe

The fourth man claimed to have sold his car but never turned up with the papers he had offered to show the police. The police are now seeking a woman they believe abetted the three men. MijaS

The Local Memo from Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington

Watch out Part 2


elieve it or not, but I sometimes worry about some of the statements I make in my columns and – believe it or not – this sometimes keeps me awake at night. Last week, I realised late on Tuesday night after the paper had been printed that I may have given the impression the my favourite pet hate – the United Left – was about take over the country and kill us all.


happened to be reading "Dead men do tell tales" by the American forensic anthropologist William Maples who was asked by the Russians to help identify the bones found near Ekaterinburg, where Tsar Nicholas and his family were executed. The Bolsheviks in Moscow pretended not to know anything about it so it was left to the local newspaper, the Ural Worker, to make the announcement, which read as follows: "Execution of Nicholas, the bloody crowned murderer shot without bourgeois formalities but in accordance with our new democratic principles"


ere the key word was "democratic" and I was somehow going to have to explain what it really means to the Communists. So I thought – right, George Orwell to the rescue. In Animal Farm, after the animals take over the farm under the leadership of the pigs (read Lenin and the Soviet hierarchy) the following appears written on a wall: “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others” – the new Soviet order put in a nutshell as only a genius like Orwell could do it. Then we have his 1984 and Big Brother and the Thought Police, among other evils.


o there was I planning to get out all my Orwell books to search through them for a lucid explanation of the difference between Socialism and Communism, when lo and behold, who came to my rescue and saved me all that work, if not the United Left itself. I knew they wouldn't let me down and that sooner or later they would have to show their true colours.


hat saved me was an article which appeared in the Spanish press titled "The Junta de Andalusia is preparing 'direct cooperation' with the Bolivarian Alliance" (my other pet hate) – at the instigation of the United Left which, if you remember is keeping the Socialists in power in Andalusia. The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) – to give it its full name – was set up by Cuba and Venezuela under Hugo Chavez to


oppose the North American Free Trade Alliance consisting of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

n the article, United Left leader and Junta deputy premier Diego Valderas announce a "great meeting" in September which will give birth to that "direct cooperation" between Andalusia and the ALBA countries – Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua – with Iran as an observer. Valderas said the cooperation envisaged is not just economic but political as well. Now isn't that just all we need on top of the economic crisis affecting us all?


ifty-three years on, the Castro brothers are still hanging on to power in Cuba, Nicolas Maduro has just stolen the election in Venezuela from his "bourgeois" opponent Henrique Capriles, the Indians in Bolivia began falling out with that country's first indigenous president, Evo Morales, long ago. And neither he nor Rafael Correo in Ecuador nor Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua would be in power today if it weren't for Hugo Chavez's oil money which helped buy an awful lot of votes.


Martin Delfín

Prosecutors vs. Judges Writes for the English language version of


he ink had been dried for two days on the last column when Spain saw its first high-profile banker sent to jail after he was questioned about fraud allegations regarding the purchase of a Florida bank. We spoke a bit too soon last week when we bemoaned the fact that no banker or any other financial whiz had been held accountable for this economic crisis.


kay, Miguel Blesa, the former Caja Madrid president, was released after spending one night in jail when he posted €2.5 million bail the following day, and there is a good chance that the investigation – which is a spinoff of the larger Marsans travel agency fraud inquiry involving gold-hoarding businessman Gerardo Díaz Ferrán – might be dropped. Again, we have a situation where prosecutors don’t see, or maybe do not want to see, what an investigative judge is seeing in the evidence laid out before him.

nd if that isn't corruption, what is?

oday in Venezuela several minions of Hugo Chavez and Maduro are under investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, the FBI and the US Treasury. One of the cases is called "the drug capos" which links Generals Rangel Silva and Clíver Alcalá, retired General Hugo Carvajal, Bolivarian leader Freddy Bernal, the alternate president of the Latin American Parliament Amilcar Figueroa and intelligence chief Ramón Madriz, among others, to the drug cartels. With backing like that, who needs the oil money? Which is just as well, because Venezuela has been so badly governed since Chavez took power in 1999 that it’s on the verge of bankruptcy, the oil money having been frittered away to buy power for his friends.


ow Valderas wants to bring all that muck and corruption to Andalusia, as if we didn't have enough of the homegrown variety already. On the other hand, such halfbaked ideas may help to open the eyes of genuinely well-meaning lefties to the dangers of putting the United Left in power. Because believe you me, if they do take over in Andalusia you'll all be hotfooting it back to the UK, as I hotfooted it here in 2002 to get away for from Chavez.


Princess Cristina

arlier this month, a subpoena issued for Princess Cristina to testify in her husband’s case involving the alleged diversion of public contract money was quashed after anti-corruption prosecutors told the Balearics regional High Court that there wasn’t enough evidence to call her in for questioning. That judge, however, also saw something that the prosecutors refused or decline to look at in the evidence to issue his summons. Some of those documents were emails sent to Cristina, who was on the board of the Nóos Institute, and her husband Iñaki Urdangarin regarding business opportunities that he was investigating perhaps trying to use the royal family name.


ow judicial sources have said that prosecutors are also against charging Blesa with document fraud and misappropriation of funds regarding the €451-million overpriced bank purchase because, again, there isn’t enough evidence. In fact, the same sources claim that prosecutors never wanted the judge to look into the case in the first place because there was never any clear cut


proof of Blesa’s wrongdoing.

ow can justice be served when we have a system that allows prosecutors to constantly question a judge’s own investigation and stop important testimonies from taking place? Prosecutors as well as a defence team do have the right to appeal any court ruling handed down, but in instances where a person – who may or may not have anything to add – is called in to testify it is better to bring in all your potential witnesses to help you get down to the bottom of a case. But vested interests will always keep this from happening in high-profile criminal investigations.


Religious Freedom

xpressions of anti-Semitism, and restrictions by some local Spanish governments prohibiting Muslims and non-Catholic groups from assembling to practise their beliefs are two problems highlighted in this year’s International Religious Freedom Report released on Monday by the US State Department. Harassments and discrimination against Jews and Muslims in Spain have always been the focus of these annual country surveys. Although American investigators found no reports of religious freedom abuses in Spain, they did point out incidents in municipalities which imposed restrictions, such as the introduction of ordinances banning the burqa and niqab (face veil), as happened in Lleida, that Muslim groups say are politically motivated moves.


he mayor of Badalona last year banned Muslims from using public spaces to pray on Fridays during the month of Ramadan. And in Torrejón de Ardoz, a signature drive was initiated to prevent the city from granting Muslims a license to build a mosque in the centre of town. Last September, when former Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held captive for more than years by Hamas, attended a Barça match someone sprayed “No Jews in this house... Jews.. Terrorist state!” on the walls of Camp Nou. There may not be any type of religious freedom restrictions in Spain but intimidations and written assaults demonstrate that there is much to be done to eradicate religious discrimination

Free breast screening starts again with Positively Pink plus Positively Blue screens the chaps Positively Pink is a Mijas based charity and its sole purpose is to raise the necessary funds to provide education, support and a FREE breast screening programme to British women and men who live on the Costa del Sol.

The screening programme is a comprehensive screening process (Gold Standard) that includes a consultation, physical examination, health education, a mammogram or ultrasound – or in some cases both – and an English translation of the result(s). This is carried out in conjunction with Clinica Medicare, a nurse-led British health centre based in La Cala de Mijas and Dr David Deardon, a UK trained specialist and the head of The British Surgical Clinic. Medicare and its medical team provide their time, clinic space and expertise free of charge for the charity. During the 2012 screening programme over 420 men and women

accessed the free programme with 10 women receiving a positive diagnosis – all are being treated and doing well. During the 2012 programme Positively Pink spent in excess of €35,700.00 to ensure that screening is available to all UK expatriates living on the Coast, regardless of age or circumstances.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. The lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is one in nine. Each year there are approximately 41,000 new diagnoses. The incidence of breast cancer for men is on the increase too with approximately 300 new cases diagnosed yearly in the UK. It has been shown that early detection of breast cancer can improve the outcome. Survival rates from breast cancer have improved in recent years partly due to early presentation and from individuals being breast aware. The risk of breast cancer increases with age. 80% of breast cancers occur

in women over the age of 50 though Positively Pink believes that screening should be available to all women from 18 years of age.

Lorraine Palmer, the founder of Positively Pink believes that “early detection is your best protection” and this certainly proved to be the case during the 2012 campaign. The majority of the women who received a positive diagnosis would not have ordinarily been screened via the State screening programme as they are over the upper age limit.

Positively Pink has an amazing calendar of events planned for 2013 and remains committed to raising the necessary funds to continue with the free screening programme. All funds raised by Positively Pink are used solely to cover the costs of the ultrasounds and mammograms. All the volunteers who run and support the charity do so without any cost to the charity. All administration


costs are absorbed by the El Oceano Hotel & Spa.

For more information about Positively Pink please visit our website: In January 2013 Positively Pink launched a new charity solely for men. Positively Blue has been set up to duplicate the services of Positively Pink and raise sufficient funds to provide a free screening programme for prostate and testicular cancer, in conjunction with Clinica Medicare and Dr Wolfgang Kleimeier of Clinica Urologica de Marbella, an established and well respected Specialist in Urology.

Free PSA blood tests for prostate cancer and a full programme of education, information and support for testicular cancer will be available for all British men living on the Costa del Sol.

Prostate cancer is a common cancer in older men. Every year 22,000 men are diagnosed in the UK

alone. Around 8 in 10 cases occur in men over the age of 65. It is rare in men under 50. Unlike many other cancers, prostate cancer can often be present for years without obvious symptoms because it is slow growing.

Although uncommon, cancer of the testis is the most common cancer in young men in the UK. About 1 in 500 men between the ages of 15 and 50 develop cancer of the testis. The exact cause is not known. However, if caught early it is one of the easiest cancers to treat and cure. In a recent survey it was found that men are going to the doctor with very advanced cancers and thus decreased survival rates. Generally survival is 60:40 when it could be as much as 99:1.

For more information about Positively Blue please visit our website: Appointments for both Positively Pink and Positively Blue are now available to book by calling

Clinica Medicare on 952 835 776. The programme will run every Tuesday from the 4th June until the middle of December 2013. written by Positively Pink

Thirty lucky people went on a six-day trip to Morroco recently and had a fabulous time. The trip took in Tanger, Marrakech and Fez but also had a few hours in Casablanca. Arranged by Jo and Derek Rawnsley, this was the second trip to Morroco and everybody who has been on them has said what fabulous value for money they are. There will be another coming up, leaving on Tuesday 12th November, complete with guides, dinner, bed and breakfast in the hotels and entrance fees to the sights. The cost of this trip is €395 per person.

And leaving on 21st October there is a seven-

day trip arranged for an “Escape to the Desert” travelling by coach, boat and camel, plus 4x4’s.

The costs include the coach, ferry, all guides, entrance fees to the vistors sights, 4x4 trip from Erfoud to Merzouga plus a sunset camel excursion. And all for €455 per person (single supplement €95). All trips are in aid of CHAIN the animal charity. Ring 696430160 for details and to book your place.

CHAIN would like to thank Flanders coach company for all the hard work they put into these trips.

Saturday the 18th May 2013 heralded the 18th time that Torremolinos have held their Foreigners Residents Day, and what a success it was with thousands of visitors. So many countries were represented that, so that no-one is offended by being left out, I will not attempt to list them. There was a strong presence from South America, Asia, and Europe. Each country or association had a stand selling or showing off their national goods, trinkets and/or food. The smell wafting around all afternoon was amazing, from BBQ steaks to mint tea. On top of this were the sounds and colours of all these lively countries. The British were represented by the usual charities – RAFA, the RBL and Cudeca, plus Scottish Pipers and Dancers.

The event started soon after 11 am with a lively parade winding its way through the town, led by a band and with the countries and associations carrying their flags and standards. This wound its way to Plaza de La Nogalera, where the

Mayor met all the representatives, presented flowers and trophies, and where the stage was set for a musical and dancing extravaganza which went on continuously until past 6.30 in the evening. The organisation was absolutely superb. I was on the Royal Air Forces Association stand with several other committee members, where we had a tombola, and other goodies including a "Name the Bear" to win a RAFA Teddy Bear. This was won by a young lady visiting from Ireland. Special thanks must go to Jill, wife of Branch Secretary Ron Sibbett, who worked

tirelessly coercing the public into parting with their money. We had visitors from all over the world, many with incredible tales to tell. We were kept very busy right to the end and we made a respectable amount of money (over 340€) for our Welfare Fund and the Wings Appeal. Thanks and congratulations should go to all involved with the organisation and involvement in this fantastic event. Jack Griggs Life Vice President and PRO RAFA Benalmadena.

The Big Breakfast

A happy gathering from the Coin Branch of the Royal British Legion enjoyed a fabulous breakfast feast in Rosie Mahoney’s garden on Saturday 18th of May in aid of the Poppy Appeal.

Chairman Jo Taylor and her culinary team served a full English breakfast to 41 ravenous revellers while several committee members amazed the crowd with their dazzling service skills. The diners started their breakfast with a delicious glass of juice – freshly squeezed from oranges donated to the event by local grower Bartolomé Rojano Madrid. The juice was followed by a huge plate of eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding, mushrooms and beans with toast, tea or coffee for a mere six euros a head. Poppy Appeal Officer Vic Dean had constructed a portable cooking hob from scrap just in time for the event. At the end of the morning he was a very happy man as the event raised €162.50 for the 2013 Poppy Appeal.

Hectic visit for Lord & Lady Taylor

Salon season coming to a summer end The season at the Salon Varietes in Fuengirola comes finishes shortly and the last big show is 'Movie Mania', a compilation put together by the extremely bubbly Alexandra Avery.

Conservatives Abroad welcomed Lord Taylor CBE of Holbeach as their after dinner speaker at their event last Friday held at Tamisa Golf.

Accompanied by his wife, Lady Taylor (pictured above with Surrey Beddows), he gave an amusing and anecdotal insight of life in the Lords and his very busy role as Minister for Criminal Information. Voters rights for ex-pats is an area he feels very strongly about and is trying his utmost to get the rules changed. He commented that it cannot be right that UK citizens living abroad cannot vote in their mother country – especially as many pay UK tax on a pension they paid into whilst working. Earlier in the day Lord Taylor addressed the British Chamber of Commerce in Malaga and then he and his wife took

the opportunity of visiting Mijas Pueblo – which he described as "one of the prettiest villages in Spain".

Lady Taylor is actively involved in various charities including being Chair of McMillan Palace of Varieties Cancer Charity and President of Spalding Mencap.

As a horticulturist – Lord Taylor’s family business was Taylor Bulbs of Spalding – he and his wife enjoyed a visit to the Patios de Flores in Cordoba on the Saturday before returning home on the Sunday.

Alexandra has assembled a cast of 30 younger performers who will be singing and dancing to a selection of the very best film songs from the great musicals that Hollywood has produced – not just recently (excerpts from Les Mis) but also in its golden past. She has been especially busy because she has just finished the second run of 'Calendar Girls' which was as enthusiastically received as on its first showing at the Salon.

the run all the calendars produced of the cast had been sold which means a further benefit to Cudeca – a charity which has always been supported by the theatre.

The season has been a busy one which has seen Fuengirola's Community Theatre offer a wide range of theatre from Music Hall to murder mystery and modern, moving drama. With Alexandra's show they are going out with a bang and will look forward to next year with growing confidence. With greater financial stability an even greater choice can be offered to the local audiences who have supported the theatre so well for so long.

Walkathon On Sunday 12th May, Cudeca held its annual "Walkathon", which brought together over 1000 friends of all ages and nationalities, with the aim of raising funds to help the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice continue to Give Life to Days.

Together, they managed to raise over 22.500€, which will be used to continue offering care to people suffering from advanced and non-curable illnesses and also support to their families. Cudeca offers this cost-free care to the patient and family, thanks to a professional team of physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses and volunteers, all completely free of charge.

At the start of the 10km route, the Medical Director of Cudeca, Dr. Marisa Martin, and the Financial Director, Rafael Olalla, were joined on the stage by their guest, Inmaculada Hernandez, Counsellor of Health from the Benalmádena Town Hall. An hour later, Cudeca sent off participants on the 5km and 2km routes, thanks to the Mayor Paloma Garcia and other representatives from the Benalmádena Town Hall.

The live entertainment performances took place all day long with professional Master of Ceremonies, Mel Williams and other renowned artists such as Arran Harding, Mark Connor, Laura, Tarifa Plana, Coro Rociero Peña Unión del Cante and Marimar – Belly Dancers. There were raffles, face painting for children, bouncy castles, games and activities for children, and

people involved in providing the public with the delicious paellas.

The award winners for the highest sponsorship went to Kim & Bente Gottlieb with 2.680€, who won a seven-night stay at Vilar do Golf (Algarve) for four. In second place was Chris Kidnapp with 1.011,40€ who won a weekend at the Hotel Don Carlos; and finally the 3rd prize went to Soroptimist Association who raised 834,45€ and won a twonight stay at the Sunset Beach Hotel. The winning group with the most participants was awarded to the Sunny View School in Torremolinos, with 54 students. Their prize included entrances to theme parks, like Biopark Fuengirola, Centro de Ciencia Principia, Club de Hielo Benalmadena, Mariposario de Benalmadena, Mc Donalds, Nagomi Spa Reserva del Higueron, Sea Life, Selwo and Tivoli World. Cudeca thanked all participants, and over 80 volunteers who made this 11th edition of the Walkathon possible, along with the invaluable assistance of all the sponsors. The support of the entire community is essential so that Cudeca can continue to Give Life to Days to those who need them now and in the future.

Trek for charity - One enterprising chap is trekking up Kilimanjaro Concerts - Benefit concerts for entertainer Johnny Westwood It’s back! - A night of Glam Rock at Buzby’s tomorrow, Thursday at 9pm

Changing the world … for one lucky horse When 19-year-old student Lisanne Hubers came over from Holland to work at Cyd Santa Maria in Alhaurin el Grande she had no idea that her stay in Spain would have such an impact on her life. Having a father who used to be a professional show jumper, and working in a drag hunting yard, Lisanne loved horses so an internship at a rescue centre fitted in well with the course she was taking in ecowildlife. There she met “Adam”, a four-year-old pure bred Spanish horse with a very sad history.

Most of us are now all too familiar with the horrific results of the economic crisis and the number of horses that are being sent to the slaughter houses because their owners can no longer afford to feed them. A lesser known and infinitely more cruel fact is that some individuals merely leave

their animals to starve – some without microchips to trace their owners are abandoned, tethered, in full view outside. Adam's fate was worse, his owner shut and secured the stable door and left him to die. He was subsequently found, too weak to stand, next to the bodies of two companions.

It was then Concordia Marquez, director of Cyd Santa Maria stepped in. Concordia and her sister Virginia work fearlessly and tirelessly for equine rights (they even organised a protest outside the Junta offices in Malaga just before Christmas to help publicise the desperate situation here in Andalucia). They understand that it is not enough merely to rescue, rehabilitate and try to rehome a small number of horses – it is necessary to see the bigger picture and work for the longer term in order

to help them all. They know how important it is for everyone to understand the animal protection laws and work closely with SEPRONA (the division of the Guardia Civil responsible for animal welfare) to ensure that the law pursues those guilty of cruel treatment; they work with young people to teach them love and respect for all living creatures trying to build a kinder generation. Without any government funding Cyd relies on dedicated volunteers, fundraisers and donations.

Lisanne has been staying with one of these volunteers during her time at the centre. Dave Gilbert has been working regularly at Cyd two days each week for several years and adopted one of their rescue horses some time ago. Never one to let age stop him (he will be 80 next year), Dave has

been studying natural horsemanship techniques for the past twelve months or so. He has been attending weekly workshops and having lessons with Parelli professional Freddy Verleyen and feels he has achieved great results with his once nervous and unpredictable equine partner “Boy”. So it was a natural step to introduce Lisanne to Dawn Mason of The Natural Horsemanship Association of Coin and bring her along to Finca Hiedra in La Jara to see for herself. She proved an enthusiastic and willing recruit.

Back at the centre Lisanne was falling in love with Adam, who was understandably a difficult case and terrified of human contact. But, she says, he just had a special look in his eyes that attracted her. Gradually, using her new-

found techniques and with infinite patience the two of them started to bond. And when Lisanne goes back to Holland at the end of this month Adam will be going too. She will also be taking her new-found knowledge of horsemanship with her and has already been searching for Parelli instructors in her own country to continue her learning.

Last month she was presented with a rosette for the most improved student at The Natural Horsemanship Association of Coin's monthly competition so Adam looks as though his nightmare is finally over and he can look forward to a happy life with a loving partner. As the saying goes,

“Rescuing one horse may not change the world, but it does change the world for that one horse”. The rescue centre is www.asociacioncydsanta – for natural horsemanship:www.natural written by Jean Joss

Star Trekking Across the Universe


Any comments?



pace: The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise. Its 5 year mission – to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before – well, that’s not entirely true!


The Gr eaT GaTsby

Directed by Baz Luhrmann Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan

Would-be writer Nick Carroway (Maguire) arrives in New York in the spring of 1922. It’s a time of loose morals, the Jazz Age, bootleg booze and everyone is living life high on the hog. Well, the rich and glamorous are.

Nick rents a place next door to the Long Island mansion owned by the mysterious and phenomenally rich partygiving Jay Gatsby. Nick’s second cousin Daisy (Mulligan) lives nearby with her philandering

husband Tom Buchanan. Gatsby used to be in love with Daisy who chose the wealthy Buchanan instead of him but now he is determined to make her his prize.

F Scott Fitzgerald’s famous literary work is seen to be a poetic and ultimately pessimistic comment on the American Dream and resonates today with audiences who are all too often caught up in the glamour of shallow celebrity and reality TV.


Two previous attempts by Hollywood to film this classic novel have crashed and burned.

Few remember the 1949 Alan Ladd version and the 1974 movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow was seen as plush with lavish production values but regarded as a failure.

Well, the words plush and lavish go hand in hand with Luhrmann – so think Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet with



their music video style colour, light and noise and don’t go expecting a literary adaptation.

The film opened the Cannes film festival and has split the critics. But no-one is denying that it is a visual feast and gloriously sumptuous, if a little overlong, and DiCaprio gives one of his best performances. The purists may feel that this much-loved novel remains unfilmable – but Luhrmann fans will not be disappointed.

When Danny's body is found beneath the picturesque cliffs that dominate the town opposites collide.

Both Miller and Hardy are determined to solve the mystery of Danny's murder, Ellie is perhaps too sensitive to the people in her community; Alec is as efficient as he is blunt. When news of the crime spreads through the town, a chain reaction

begins which will put Broadchurch under a national spotlight, pulling the town, its residents and its secrets, apart.


Beecham House is abuzz. The rumour circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. For Reginald Paget, Wilfred Bond and Cecily Robson this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they're in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their estranged former singing

partner Jean Horton. Can the passage of time heal old wounds before the gala concert?

ruth be told I am not a “trekkie”, however I will confess that in my younger years I watched “Star Trek: The Next Generation” religiously. In my defense, I had a thing about Patrick Stewart’s voice.


recall years ago being on a plane and one of the inflight films was the 2009 J.J. Abrams “Star Trek”. I avoided it during the whole flight and when I decided to watch it, there were only ten minutes left. I did however watch those ten minutes, and well, it failed to entice me to watch it in the future.


hat said, the recent release of “Star Trek: Into Darkness” has piqued my curiosity. A story of revenge with a good oldfashioned villain, who would pass that up? However, I have rules, and the rules are: you can’t watch a sequel without watching the first part. So, this weekend I sat down and watched the 2009 “Star Trek”.


he film begins with the Starship Enterprise under attack by a rogue Romulan ship. The Romulan captain Nero (played by Eric Bana) has a serious beef with Spock, however Nero has gone back in time , and Spock is only child and has presumably done nothing wrong.


on’t worry, I found this quite confusing myself, but it does end-up making sense – just watch for another ten minutes and

everything should fall into place – ish!


o, the Romulans take down the Enterprise and Captain Kirk’s wife and just born child escape from the ship. Little Kirk then grows up and decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and joins the Space academy. Kirk, is a bit of a smarty pants and no one likes him very much, especially Spock. Starfleet receive a distress call from the Vulcan planet and off they go to the rescue, but Kirk realises that it is a trap and lo and behold, he’s right! Nero’s cockroach-looking ship turns up, declares war on Spock and Starfleet, (but mainly Spock). They then discover that Nero is from the future, and somewhere in the future Spock destroyed Nero’s planet.


K, I’m not saying anymore, because either you’ve already seen this film and are probably thinking this isn’t the best description of it or you will do as I did and watch it before seeing the new one. And frankly, I can’t bring myself to describe the rest of the film, just watch it.


onsidering “Star Trek” is directed by J.J. Abrams, it’s only natural to feel Lost in the film, but I think he did a rather good job. Obviously, no one will ever replace William Shatner as Captain Kirk or Nimoy as Spock, but Abrams shows us a younger version of these characters while maintaining the cheesy humour.


was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed “Star Trek” and I’m most certainly looking forward to “Into Darkness”. Now the question remains, Abrams vs Meyer (director of Wrath of Khan) will it be a case of: anything you Khan do, I Khan do better?!

There is an immense opportunity for you to make sweeping changes in your life. This week dig deeper and commit further to something you initiated in the past but lost focus. Determination is half the battle, so show others that you mean business. Even though there are bound to be obstacles placed on your path there won’t be anything to disappoint you enough to stop you from proceeding, there will be a way to go around them. Your load is about to lessen, someone will come forward who can help you when you need it most. Things will progressively ease in the coming weeks and the worry will start to calm down. A healthier cycle is ahead, with your person and your relationship with money. It is all a matter of interpretation. This is a good week to also focus on your relationships to make sure things are balanced and no-one is feeling unappreciated. If in some area of your life you feel you are getting the short end of the stick, the truth and someone’s knowledge of this truth could turn everything around. Self honesty will truly have a way of freeing you up. There are some decisions and choices that need to be made – however, these choices and decisions will prove to be a lot more fun and exciting than usual. It is all about choosing what is in your own best interest, putting yourself first. You are beginning to think differently regarding all that is possible, you are looking at something from different angles and this can make you rather unpredictable. The truth is anything is possible right now, just keep moving towards your dreams. You will have a spirit of an innovator but keep in mind that if something isn’t broken then don’t try and fix it. Focus this spirit on that which needs changing. There is no rush, take the time to think things through. It could feel as though you have tried everything and nothing seems to be working. Like you have been tested no end. Although you were never the type to roll over and call it quits something is pushing you to your limits. A clever way through is coming due to a timely exchange with a trusted connection, one that creates an unexpected breakthrough in your communication. Just when you thought this thing was a lost cause, you find that your hope is restored. Your true potential is coming to the fore, there is nothing you have to do differently it will all happen automatically. In the past certain skills you may have taken for granted but now you realise that they have a role to play in your life. There could be interesting offers for advancement and rewards will follow. Just be patient and trust those gut instincts. Let yourself shine brightly, this is no time to hide and let others see that beaming smile. don’t have to be a chef!

Nothing winds you up more than others who sit perched on a fence, steeped in indecision. You need people in your life that are fully on board and in it for the long haul as this deepens your sense of trust in their intentions. You need to be free to have the kind of talks and exchanges that can lead to actual solutions. Think through your words and your actions before rushing in to judgement, focus on your own abilities and do not compare yourself to others, you are unique. If you can slow down long enough to quiet your mind and clear the static, you will be able to realise that a door will open soon and there could be an offer on the table. It is your own personal excellence that will help determine the level of positivity and abundance that is coming your way. Focus on the tasks at hand and the rewards will take care of themselves. All eyes are on you as others can tell that you are someone they need to watch.

The one thing you are worried about is that you are going to run out of time, things are moving so fast at the moment, this is a busy time for you. You will need to avoid the tendency this week for over analysis, for too much analysis will lead to paralysis. Move through this week efficiently and with a deliberate pace. Let your mind work for you and the time you have will always be enough. Everything you want and could need is available to you. You could be in the process of confronting all of your pre-conceived limitations and are ready to bring them down with a bulldozer. Make sure you take time to relax and calmly integrate the recent events of the past. You could be feeling extremely emotional and it comes from the depths of your being. Do not allow minor details to become major catastrophes in your perceptions, you have to make sure things make logical sense and check the facts before rushing to take action. You feel things deeply and sometimes can become overcome with too much emotion, not knowing if it is yours or theirs. Being sensitive does come at a price, but in the end it brings you closer to the ultimate, to the timeless and to the boundless. By the weekend you could experience a healthy distancing from your emotions, one that allows you to observe yourself within your connections to others with less attachment. It will feel like a rare gift to be grounded in the midst of uncertainty.

Cancer risk gene new testing announced A pioneering programme to test cancer patients for nearly 100 risk genes is to start in London to look for genes such as those which led Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie to have a double mastectomy.

The test, developed by biotechnology firm

Illumina, looks for 97 genes which increase the risk of cancer. More risk genes can be added to the test once they are discovered.

The objective of the programme, funded by the Wellcome Trust, is to come up with the best way for

such testing to become the standard across the whole NHS. It will start with women with breast or ovarian cancer by 2014.

The testing will be run by the Institute of Cancer Research and The Royal Marsden hospital in London. It is available for use in other hospitals, but the researchers say this is the first attempt at introducing mass cancerrisk gene testing as a cornerstone of treatment. The results will be used to pick targeted drugs or decide how much of the tissue around a tumour to remove.

The testing will also highlight patients at high risk of additional cancers, who need to be monitored closely. A person's genetic code is like an instruction manual for building and running their body. However, faulty instructions can increase a person's risk of developing cancer. Some people with BRCA gene mutations have an 80 per cent risk of breast cancer.

Professor Nazneen Rahman, lead investigator of the programme said it is very important to know if a mutation in a person's genetic blueprint has caused their cancer. He said this "allows more personalised treatment, so for example such people are often at risk of getting another cancer and may choose to have more comprehensive surgery, or may need different medicines, or extra monitoring."

For example, a patient with colon cancer may choose to have a large section of their bowel removed, rather than just the tumour, if it turned out they were at very high risk of colon cancers and were likely to develop more later in life. Around 2% of all cancers are down to such genetic changes, but it varies hugely between cancer types. In ovarian cancer, 15% are due to a genetic predisposition to developing tumours.

There’s still room out there for the oldies and goodies

Contemporary lifestyle and celebrity gossip

Rod does it again - just to prove he can … and his fans are loving it with the album going straight to the number one slot.

Some said he was past it, others have been clamouring for it for years. However ageing rocker Rod Stewart has proved his fans right carrying on in his own inimitable gravel-voiced way by climbing to the number one spot in the charts once again with an album of original material inspired by the writing of his autobiography. The results have delivered him his eighth No 1 studio album, finishing 20,000 copies ahead of the nearest competition, singersongwriter Gabrielle Aplin's English Rain. The new album, out now, is entitled ‘Time’ and the last time Rod enjoyed similar success was in 1979 with a compilation of greatest hits, and his last No

1 album of original material was A Night On the Town, back in 1976. This means he has now beaten Tom Jones’ record of the longest gap between No 1s – Tom hit top spot in 2000 with Reload, nearly 32 years after Delilah. Rod’s new record comes after a 34-year gap.

On hearing the news, Stewart told the Official Charts Company: "Well, knock me down with a feather. Just goes to show there's plenty of songs left in the old fiddle. Thank you!" Meanwhile, Official Chart director Martin Talbot added: "It is a remarkable achievement by Rod to reach a total of 15 No 1s. He is truly a

legend of the Official Singles and Official Album charts.”

Roderick David Stewart was born on the 10th January 1945 (which makes him aged 68) at 507 Archway Road, Highgate, North London, the youngest of five children of Robert Stewart and Elsie Gilbart. His father was Scottish from Leith and his mother was a local girl from Upper Holloway, London. In the past he has worked with record lables Mercury, Warner Bros., J Records, Universal Music Group, and Capitol Records. He has been a member of Shotgun Express, The Steampacket, The Jeff Beck Group, and Faces groups.

Brian May leads cull protest The decision to kill badgers to halt the spread of bovine TB will bring thousands of demonstrators out in protest next week.

The Government and the NFU (National Farmers' Union), say the cull will help eradicate

Rooney baby Coleen Rooney gave birth to her overdue second baby, a boy, in the early hours of Monday morning after being taken to hospital on Saturday complaining that she had been struggling to sleep.

Leading them is the unlikely figurehead of Queen guitarist Brian May. The legendary rocker is so opposed to the cull that he says animal rights campaigners are 'at war with the Government'.

The cull is due to start on June 1st in Gloucestershire and Somerset, where trained marksmen will be permitted to shoot badgers when they leave their setts over a six-week period.

A very happy Rod Stewart who is Nº 1 in the charts for the first time in 34 years

revealed recently that she would love to have a big family, saying: "I'd like to have maybe three or four children. I'd be happy to be a full-time mum."

Coleen and husband footballer Wayne Rooney announced that they were expecting for the second time in December. They already have a son, Kai. bovine TB, which affected 6,000 British cattle in the first two months of 2013.

However, the opposition say that there is no scientific evidence that culling the badgers will make any difference to the number of cases reported.

“THE NEWS” WANTS TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS Send letters to the editor as part of an e-mail text to


David Thorne

From time to time I read Muriel Pilkington’s column in your newspaper and her intentionally one-sided view of Spanish politics never fails to make me laugh. In her latest offering she argues that the Government is not interfering in the editorial content of La Sexta but it would seem that it’s not been for want of trying. If she’d like to check back on the Internet to August last year, she will find that El

by email

Confidencial Digital was reporting precisely the opposite then, saying that the Partido Popular (PP) had been trying to pressure Antena 3 into censuring La Sexta in return for improving the conditions of the merger. Whether you like him or not, El Gran Wyoming has been one of the most popular humorists on Spanish TV for many years. His programmes have been critical of both sides of the

Trevor Clarke

Hope can help with this one Steve, I hit a ball off the tee at a par 3, the ball sliced badly and looked as if it was going out of bounds. When we got to the green the ball was on the green. It was confirmed by a greenkeeper that the ball had been thrown back by persons unknown. I have always been under the impression that as this action was unsolicited by me I could carry on playing with it. I had played a provisional ball so I ended up playing them both and got a ruling when we got in. It was decided that as I was aware of what happened then I couldn't continue to play with

political spectrum and can perhaps be compared to the BBC’s Have I Got News For You or Channel 4’s 10 O’Clock Live. So luckily it seems that part of the Spanish media at least is still able to resist political pressure. Editor says: Like Marmite and the Eurovision Song Contest, people seem to either love or loathe our Muriel but, at least you read her columns and it gets you thinking!

my original ball and had to count the score with my provisional ball. This seems a little bit grey to me, what is the correct ruling please ? Also, on an away-day one of my playing partners was on the green and had the flag removed which was then placed off the green. He was putting down a slope and the ball went long and off the green and struck the flagstick. Is this a penalty ? I wasn't sure because if you pitch to a green and it hits the flagstick it is no penalty. Would appreciate your rulings/comments on the above and thank you for your time.

I hope this sets the record straight in this respect. We have enough misunderstandings between Christians and Muslims on other subjects

Two for Amy by email

I have just re-read Amy Thomas´s column to make sure of my facts. It is a very comprehensive account of Dustin Hoffman´s film, which whets the appetite, but unfortunately she doesn´t give the title of the film! (There are a couple of mistakes too – ´later´, when it should be ´latter´ and ´adverse´ when it should be ´averse´). Please could she give us the title of the movie in the next issue? Many thanks. From Jan Wallis by email I read Amy Thomas’s revue

of Dustin Hoffman’s debut in film direction – but what is the title of the film??? Might it be “Quartet” or some such name?? From Jeremy Rittener by email

Editor says: Quartet (as opposed to Late Quartet which is a totally different film) is quite correct Jeremy. By the way, have a look at Michael Gambon in it, doesn’t he look like Top Gear’s James May?! Also, there is a review of the film under the DVD releases on page 20.

Comment By Ken Campbell

Little Big Moon T

Try and catch a glimpse of the full Moon this weekend, it will be huge! he Moon doesn’t go around the Earth in a perfect circle – its orbit is elliptical and so sometimes it is closer to the Earth and at others it is further away. On Saturday evening the Moon will be at its closest point to the Earth known as perigee and will be at least 12% bigger than normal. f you manage to spot the Moon as it is rising or when it is close to the horizon then it will appear even bigger again. This is due to something called the ‘big Moon illusion’. Nobody is quite sure why it happens but the Moon always appears much bigger when it is close to the horizon. here is no scientific reason why this happens and careful measurement has shown that the Moon is exactly the same size whether it is close to the horizon or high overhead in the sky. It is thought that when it is low down near the horizon you have objects such as trees and houses in your field of view that gives you something to compare the Moon against. But optical illusions aside, the Moon really will look huge over the weekend. ince there is a point when the Moon is closest to the Earth– perigee – then it stands to reason that there must be a point when it is at its most distant point –apogee. This was on May 11th this year and just happened to occur when there was an eclipse of the Sun. During an eclipse the Moon appears almost exactly the same size as the Sun and so blocks out the Suns disc for a few minutes. During this latest eclipse, because the Moon was at apogee at the time, it was slightly too small to cover the whole disc, instead it left a complete circle of sunlight all around it and the people of central Australia witnessed an annular eclipse. hen the Apollo astronauts went to the Moon they left behind a series of reflective mirrors. Astronomers fire a powerful laser beam at the mirror and time how long it takes for the reflection to return. By doing this they can measure the distance to the Moon very accurately indeed and have discovered that the Moon is moving away from us at about 4cm per year. This might not sound like much but added up over thousands of years it means that in the future a total eclipse





of the Sun will not occur as the Moon will be too small to cover the whole of the Sun. total eclipse of the Sun will occur on November 3rd this year that will be visible more or less along the equator from Bermuda, right across the Atlantic Ocean and into central Africa. Southern Spain will get to see a partial eclipse while the people of Britain will see nothing of it. hile you are waiting for the Moon to rise in the east at around 22.00 this weekend you may like to turn around and face west and if you have a good view of the horizon you will see a very tight grouping of three planets Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. They will be so close together from 24th to 28th May that you will be able to fit all three in the field of view of binoculars (be sure that the Sun has set first before using binoculars). Jupiter is moving to the far side of the Sun after dominating the night sky all through winter. It will return as a morning object later in the year. Venus is now the brightest planet and as it gradually moves higher in the sky over the next few weeks it will set later and later after sunset and become much more prominent. his conjunction will be a golden opportunity to spot the tiny and elusive planet Mercury. Because Mercury is so close to the Sun it is never really seen in dark skies, it is always hiding in the twilight sky and so is usually very difficult to spot, but by using the much brighter and easier-tofind Venus and Jupiter it will take you straight to it. Mercury always has a pink tint to it compared to Venus’s dazzling white colour and Jupiter’s yellow. The trio will form an equilateral triangle before separating again. here will be a very small partial eclipse of the Moon very early on Sunday morning but it is so small it really isn’t worth getting out of bed for!



Happy Stargazing!

Pedrosa wins as Crutchlow gets his best result in MotoGP

Dani Pedrosa finally won the French MotoGP at his eighth attempt on Sunday. When Pedrosa reached the premier-class in 2006, he had won the three previous Le Mans races as a 125 and then 250cc rider.

The drought came to an end during an actionpacked wet race, which saw Pedrosa battle Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso for the first half of the grand prix before escaping to his 24th victory in the premier-class. Cal Crutchlow (pictured right) overcame a bad fall in qualifying to achieve his best ever result as a MotoGP rider with second place, after holding off a charging Marc Marquez for the last few laps of the race.

Crutchlow had suffered a small fracture to his right shin in the accident on Saturday that also left him coughing blood on the side of the racetrack.

“I have a small crack in the top of the shin bone, so when I walk it hurts but on the bike it's not so bad and when the adrenaline is going it's no problem,” said Crutchlow. “I was more concerned for the chest and stomach because I coughed a lot of blood yesterday and also I had a big nose bleed.

“So I'm thankful to the circuit for the red flag (after the fall) because I was lying on the floor with blood in the helmet and I didn't know what the situation was, so I stayed on the floor.” Crutchlow then claimed fourth on the grid just an hour later in the dry qualifying session.

The wet race on Sunday meant that the pace wasn’t as high and stress on his injuries was kept to a minimum, giving him a chance to make amends for last year's accident in the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team's home race.

“ I knew if it was a wet race I could try and make amends for last year, when the same three of us me, Valentino (Rossi) and Dovi – were battling in the same

wet conditions.”

Crutchlow overtook factory Yamaha star Rossi for third place at around the halfway mark of the 28 laps, then passed his old team mate Dovizioso's Ducati for second with five laps to go just as Marc Marquez was closing in. “Last year I crashed out of the battle. We were in those same positions again and I was thinking 'just stay on board and stay smooth'. I knew I wanted to bide my time, but I was very

top satellite rider and moves him to fourth in the world championship standings, ahead of Rossi.

Crutchlow splits Spaniards Pedrosa and Marquez

“It's definitely nice to beat those guys. They are world class. I think in these condition we proved we can fight very well. And the bike is working good. In the dry and wet I'm happy with the bike. This is a great reward for the team at their home grand prix.”

Bernie Ecclestone has said he wouldn't be surprised to see BMW elect to make a return to F1 on the back of Honda's decision to make a comeback. Honda confirmed last week that it had agreed a deal to supply engines to McLaren from 2015 onwards, having previously walked away from the sport following the 2008 campaign when it sold its team to Ross Brawn. BMW followed suit twelve months later when it sold its team back to Peter Sauber, but Ecclestone insisted that the new engine

regulations – which attracted Honda back to the sport – made it more attractive for the German marque to look at F1 once again, with the commercial rights holder saying he wouldn't be surprised to see a return. "I would be surprised if we don't see BMW again," he told City AM. "I think they could come in. The amount of money they spent was not significant in the grand scheme of things. It makes sense for them to return."

C.O.G.S golfers travel to the impressive Valle Romano Golf Resort nr Estepona

Twenty four members and guests made the journey to Valle Romano – most of us for the first time. On arrival you are presented with a stunning looking clubhouse overlooking this superb golf resort. It is certainly a course you need to have played before, as the green placements are hard to visualise. This accounted for the scores, except for one member, being low against our usual standards.

Anyway for those of you that have not visited the course, it is strongly

recommended and the scores are as follows.

Longest drive on hole 10 Nick Carwood. Nearest the pin on hole 13 Brian Millwood. Nearest the pin in two shots on hole 4 Dave Haworth. Nearest the hole in two shots, not claimed. Winning the team prize with 111 points were Dave Wrigglesworth, Heikki Kontinnen, Brian Millwood and Tony Hussey.

The day’s main competition: In third place with 27 points was Tony Hussey, in second Place

with 30 points was Brian Millwood and in first place with a great score of 40 points was Heikki Kontinnen. Well played Heikki. In last place with 10 points and the winner of the wooden spoon was Phil Beardmore.

Our thanks to Elaine at Lainey’s bar for the food and a hangover and to Joe King our captain, Andy Macfarlane our secretary and John Bamber our treasurer for their organisation of the event. Nig Bowler Chairman.

The course offers some breathtaking views of the coastline

Wayne’s Poker Tips

Floating, bluffing and fish are terms you will often hear at the poker table. Bluffing we know is someone betting into a pot to represent a hand they do not have in order to the win the pot. Bluffing big is not as common as the TV games would have you think – these are just the action hands in the game. Remember these are very good players and know when to bluff or not. It is not just about jamming the pot, you can not buy a pot if the other player has a made hand. You need to

work out what is the raising/calling range of your opponents. Have they hit the board? And, most important, what will they not call? If you bet three quarters of the pot, if he has missed chances are he will fold, so why risk your entire stack going all in? Retain some fold equity! Floaters and fish are not the same. Fish in poker is referring to a very bad player who likes

to be in every pot regardless of raises, 3 and 4 bets. Normally they play short stacked as they think it reduces their losses but over time they giving away their bank roll. In general terms if you are floating you are playing a random hand that is weak – best played against a player you read as passive or weak. The intention is to hit the flop hard, perfect! However this is unlikely so you float by calling any flop bet and if the board is favourable play the turn and river aggressively with the intention of out playing your opponent and taking the pot away from him. Remember to float you need to have good reads because if you get it wrong it will cost you, so we can say floating is skilled fish play. One of the best examples is The Devil Fish (David Ulliott).

Ian Bell passed fit for second test

Ian Bell has been passed fit for England's second Test with New Zealand at Headingley, starting on Friday. The Warwickshire batsman, who suffered a bout of tonsillitis during the first Test victory at Lord's, is included in an unchanged 12man squad. Yorkshire players Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root are both hopeful of playing their first Test on their home ground. "We need to produce another strong performance to secure a series win," said England selector Geoff Miller.

Barca stick the boot in as Mourinho’s departure is confirmed by Real Madrid Carles Vilarrubi the Barcelona vice-president has welcomed the news Jose Mourinho is leaving Real Madrid, describing the Portuguese as a 'scourge' on Spanish football. It was announced on Monday night that Mourinho would be parting company with Madrid at the end of the current Primera Division season, bringing to an end the turbulent three-year spell since he has been in charge of the club.


During that time, Mourinho has had several high-profile run-ins with Madrid’s arch rivals Barca, including poking Tito Vilanova in the eye (above)


during a Spanish Supercopa match and claiming UEFA favoured the Catalan club following an ill-tempered Champions League semifinal. And Vilarrubi, vice-president of Barca’s Institutional Area, is glad to see the back of him. He told Catalunya Radio: “Now I can say it, Mourinho has been a scourge. Seeing him leave is a positive for Spanish football because he had created a negative atmosphere.”

No singing Sporting Shorts IN THE SPOTLIGHT politics FOOTBALL please! England manager Roy Hodgson will ask fans not to sing antagonistic songs during a friendly against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on 29th May. It will be the first meeting since a game at Lansdowne Road was abandoned in 1995 because of crowd trouble. Hodgson, in an email to England ticket holders and in his programme notes, will ask fans to avoid songs with political or religious overtones.

New England kit revealed ahead of Wembley friendly

The new England kit, which is set to be worn for the first time against the Republic of Ireland on 29th May at Wembley, has been unveiled. England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere tweeted a picture of a student from his old school wearing the shirt( below right). Nike have taken over from Umbro as the Football Association's kit supplier this year. The new England round-neck shirt resembles West Germany's 1974 World Cup-winning kit, as worn by captain Franz Beckenbauer (pictured below left).

the captain's armband before producing a performance worthy of his peak years, which included an assist, if not a goal. Zlatan Ibrahimovic threatened to overshadow the former England skipper's night with a brace in between Blaise Matuidi's strike in the first half, but it was plain to see this evening belonged to Beckham. It was clearly an emotional farewell from the former England captain.

The Northern Irishman came from two down after four holes to win 2&1 at the Thracian Cliffs course in the Bulgarian coastal resort of Kavarna. McDowell, 33, had earlier beaten South Africa's Branden Grace 3&2 in their semi-final. Jaidee saw off another South African, Thomas Aiken, by the same score.
