Assembly recalled after violent Belfast weekend

The Northern Ireland Assembly met on Tuesday to debate the Parades Commission ruling on the July 12th Orange march in north Belfast which sparked riots throughout the city. The recall request was made by the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) before the parade, asking for the special sitting to be timetabled "at the earliest opportunity available". The DUP motion calls for respect for the law and for "tolerance to be shown for

In a statement ahead of the debate, Northern Ireland Chief Constable Matt Baggott said: "In the aftermath of four days of disorder and attacks on police, I would urge the assembly to condemn all violence, and unequivocally support the brave efforts of my colleagues and affirm that all protests must be both peaceful and lawful.

"The PSNI is resolved to uphold the rule of law. Today is a day for calming words and a renewed commitment from the Assembly to finding political solutions. "There are already too many injured police officers and young people facing prison sentences for anything else to be acceptable."

The Parades Commission published its determination, restricting the north Belfast parade, on Tuesday July 9th. It ruled that the Orange Order could march past

Ardoyne shops on the Crumlin Road on the morning of July 12th but could not use the same return route on Friday afternoon. The stretch of the road at the shops separates loyalist and nationalist communities. The DUP said the decision rewarded riotous behaviour by dissident republicans. In its motion, the party says attempts to build a shared future have been harmed by those unwilling to share space or respect cultural identity of others. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

At least six blast bombs and several petrol bombs were thrown at police in east Belfast during a fourth night of rioting in the city on Monday. In north Belfast, petrol bombs and other missiles were thrown at police and a car set alight near the loyalist Mount Vernon estate on the Shore Road. Police Service of Northern Ireland Superintendent Emma Bond, speaking about the pipe bomb in north Belfast, said: "We consider ourselves extremely fortunate that we are not dealing with a much more serious incident and that all of the officers were able to walk away from that situation unharmed.

"We have appealed for calm in the area and I continue to do so. I would appeal to anyone with


influence in the community to exert it to ensure that the next few days pass off without incident."

Northern Ireland Secretary of State, Theresa Villiers, condemned the attack in north Belfast, which she said was "deplorable". DUP assembly member William Humphrey said loyalist protesters had been demonstrating peacefully in the Twaddell Avenue area when the incident happened. He described the attack as an "attempt to injure and kill". Sinn Féin assembly member Gerry Kelly said the attack was "completely unacceptable" and "not supported by the vast majority of the community in Ardoyne". It emerged on Monday night that US Vice-

the British Royal Family changed its name from Hanover to Windsor

Rajoy rejects resignation calls Prime minister Mariano Rajoy told a press conference on Monday that he will not give in to "blackmail", amid calls for him to resign over alleged links to a suspect in a payments scandal.

The calls for his resignation came after the El Mundo newspaper published text messages he allegedly sent to the suspect, Luis Barcenas, ex-treasurer of his Popular Party (PP).

Rajoy said he would fulfil the mandate given by the Spanish people. He said a prime minister could not be expected to spend all day denying every rumour, insinuation or biased media report made about him. "The rule of law does not bow to blackmail and the institutions, the administrations of justice, the judicial police and tax administrations have acted and are acting and will continue to act with absolute independence," he said.

Earlier on Monday, in his appearance before the Judge Pablo Ruz, Bárcenas apparently handed over ledgers and documents, both handwritten and in digital formats, which could prove damaging to the interests of the ruling party and its top officials. He has apparently accused his predecessor as PP treasurer, Álvaro Lapuerta, of being the mastermind behind the system of irregular payments and donations. He also attacked Rajoy and the PP secretary

general Maria Dolores de Cospedal, alleging that he “paid Rajoy and Cospedal in cash in 2008, 2009 and 2010”.

Bárcenas said he handed over to both Rajoy and De Cospedal 25,000 euros each in 2010 as a form of bonus. They were paid, he said, in 500-euro banknotes. Both Rajoy and De Cospedal have consistently denied the existence of a double accounting system as well as having received

King on first trip Prestige oil disaster abroad since operation trial nears end After nine months of hearing witnesses and examining evidence, Judge Juan Luis Pía said last week that he will pass sentence in the autumn on the Prestige disaster – Spain's worst environmental catastrophe in modern times.

King Juan Carlos was met by Mohamed VI and his oldest son at Rabat airport on Monday on his first trip abroad since his hip operation earlier this year.

The King was accompanied by Foreign Minister José Manuel García-Margallo and they were joined on Tuesday by Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz, Justice Minister Alberto Ruiz Gallardón, Industry Minister José Manuel Soria, and Public works

Minister Ana Pastor.

The King has also invited the nine people who have headed the Foreign Ministry since 1979 – Marcelino Oreja, José Pérez Llorca, Javier Solana, Carlos Westendorp, Abel Matutes, Josep Piqué, Ana Palacio, Miguel Ángel Moratinos and Trinidad Jiménez – to accompany him on his four-day visit. Ill health has kept Fernando Morán at home.

Spanish companies – including Acciona, Abengoa, Ferrovial, Endesa, Talgo, Iberia, Globalia, Inditex, Teléfonica and Indra – also flew in on Tuesday. Both countries consider the visit to be "very important", which has the purpose of strengthening commercial, educational and cultural ties. King Juan Carlos has always had a close relationship with the Moroccan Royal family and is very popular there.

In a rare move, the judge went to the press room at the A Coruña courthouse to give reporters his impressions of the case and also to dish out some strong criticism. "Obviously there are more people who need to be held responsible for the incident – both politicians as well as non-policy makers," he said. He believes that more defendants, other than the former director of the Merchant Marine, José

Luis López Sors, should have been sitting in the dock. "There were a lot of missing defendants who should have been brought to trial," Pía said. Among those he said should have been held responsible were the "politicians" who were in charge at the time and the directors of the shipping company.

In 2002, some 50,000 tons of crude spilled into the Atlantic when the Prestige oil tanker broke up off the coast of Galicia, polluting hundreds of miles of shoreline. It took lawyers eight years to investigate the case and it was two more before it went to trial. Judge Pía, said "this macro-trial has been excessive, meaningless and

expensive". He pointed out that when the sentences are handed down in early November, it will be 11 years since the disaster.

Apostolos Mangouras, the Greek captain of the Prestige who is one of the defendants, defended his actions and also took time to thank "the Galician people". "They had to put up with 10 years of a continuous trial," he said.

Prosecutors believe that the entire clean-up cost the government around €4.3 billion.

Asked if she received money in envelopes from Bárcenas, De Cospedal replied: “Never.” She said she reserved the right to take legal action against Bárcenas. “I want to reiterate that I have never given in to blackmail because I have nothing to hide.”

The ledgers cover the period 1990 to 2008, with the exception of the years 1993-1996. They show cash payments made by the party to Rajoy and

other top officials, including Rodrigo Rato, Jaime Mayor Oreja, Francisco Álvarez-Cascos, Javier Arenas, Ángel Acebes and De Cospedal.

The papers detail more than 30 donations to the party that were illegal, either because they exceeded the limit of €60,000 from a single source, or because they were made by companies or businessmen in exchange for public contracts.

Barcenas' latest statements completely contradict earlier statements made to the press and Judge Ruz.

While the Socialists have called for Rajoy to stand down, the opposition as a whole is divided on how to proceed. Since the PP has an absolute majority in Parliament a censure motion has no prospect of prospering.

Electricity up 3.2% Last Fridays' Cabinet meeting approved an overhaul of the regulated electricity system that will raise costs for producers and prices for consumers.

Returns on investment for power suppliers and distributors are to be cut by €2.7 billion, while the average electricity bill has risen by 3.2 per cent, taking effect this week. The reform is aimed at

attacking the problem of the so-called tariff deficit — the difference between what it costs to produce electricity and the regulated rates charged for it. “The measures in this reform aren’t easy for anyone, but they’re absolutely necessary,” Industry Minister José Manuel Soria told a news conference on Friday. “If

we did nothing, the only alternatives would be either the bankruptcy of the system or an increase in the price for consumers of more than 40 per cent.”

Addressing the same news conference, Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría said: “This is a definitive reform to end the problems of Spain’s energy sector.”

Another 'most wanted' N drug dealer arrested the

News Zpvs!pvumppl!po!uif!Xpsme


The police have arrested the notorious British drug dealer, Brian Charrington, who is accused of running an international trafficking racket involving cocaine from Venezuela.

He was one of 13 people arrested in Spain and Venezuela on Monday as part of an operation during which police also seized 485 pounds of cocaine hidden in an apartment in L'Albir, near Benidorm, and impounded

property and bank accounts worth more than €5 million. A police statement described Charrington as "one of the 10 criminals most investigated by European police and leader of an international drugtrafficking organisation".

Charrington operated in the North East during the ‘80s and hit the headlines in 1992 when a Customs’ raid at his Nunthorpe home in Middlesbrough unearthed

almost £2 million in cash, allegedly linked to drug dealing. He was also accused of playing a major role in a plan to smuggle Colombian cocaine with a street value of £150 million, but was released when it was revealed he was a police informant. He was re-homed in Australia, but later moved to Spain.

Two other most wanted British criminals have been arrested in recent weeks. Just over a week

ago, convicted British drug trafficker Mark Lilley, who had been on the run for 13 years, was caught by the police hiding in a panic room at his villa in Alhaurin de la Torre.

In May, police apprehended Andrew Moran, who had escaped four years earlier from Burnley crown court, where he was convicted in his absence of conspiring to commit armed robbery.

King's son-in-law foils demonstrators Iñaki Urdangarin arrived an hour early on Tuesday at a court in Barcelona to avoid an expected anticorruption demonstration. He had been summoned to make a statement against his ex-partner in the Instituto Nóos, Diego Torres, and eight media groups for

publishing private emails.

The demonstration was due to begin at 9.30 am outside the court but Urdangarin arrived at 8.45. Torres arrived half an hour later, entering the court by the back door to avoid a small group of Catalan nationalists at

the front entrance.

Queen Sofia was not so lucky on Monday, when 200 miners booed her as she arrived at the Corias Monastery in Cangas de Narcea (Asturias) which has been converted into the region's third Parador (a historical building

converted into a luxury, themed hotel at affordable prices for clients). The miners had already booed and insulted other regional and national figures who attended the inauguration. The miners were protesting against the threatened closure of the region's mines.

Safety and sexism at the Sanfermines

The final run of the Sanfermines festival in Pamplona ended in tragedy for a 23-year-old Australian women who was gored in the chest on Sunday. identified only as J. e., she is in a serious condition after suffering fractured ribs and damage to her right lung. Saturday's run was marred when there was a crush of people at the entrance to the ring after a door was accidentally left shut. A 19-year-old was placed on artificial breathing apparatus and 22 people were injured in the incident. on friday, a 20-year-old US university student, Patrick eccles, had his spleen removed after being gored in the stomach, while two Spaniards were also seriously injured. The Sanfermines also came under the spotlight over the practice of groups of men manhandling topless women during the celebrations, which has enraged anti-gender violence groups. forty-eight bulls died during the festival.


Mother of dead baby released

A judge has released the mother of a baby which was found dead in a freezer at her home last friday. She was held by the police until the judge ordered her release on Sunday pending the results of an autopsy to find out whether the baby was born dead or alive. The 33-year-old woman told police she was alone when she gave birth and did not know if it had been born alive. The baby's umbilical cord was still attached and the body showed no signs of violence.

World News Fugitive Snowden is ‘trapped in Russia’

President Vladimir Putin told journalists on Monday that the US authorities have in effect trapped fugitive intelligence leaker Edward Snowden in Russia.

Mr Putin has refused to hand over the fugitive to the US authorities, but says he can only stay in Russia if he stops leaking secrets about US surveillance schemes. He said there were signs that Mr Snowden was "changing his position".

However, he added that Mr Snowden did not want to stay in Russia but wanted to take up residence in "another country".

The former intelligence analyst has been offered asylum in a number of Latin American states, but has no documents with which to leave the transit zone at Moscow airport where he has been stuck – reportedly staying at the airport's Capsule Hotel – since arriving from Hong

Rudd sets out carbon tax changes

The Australian government has said its plan to scrap an unpopular carbon tax will cost A$3.8bn (£2.3 billion). Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the move would be funded by alternative savings and would mean that families were better off. It comes ahead of elections which must be called before the end of November. The carbon tax was introduced by Mr Rudd's predecessor, Julia Gillard, in 2012. It forces the worst-polluting firms to pay a levy for every tonne of greenhouse gases they

emit. Australia is the worst polluter per head of population in the developed world.

Mr Rudd said: "The nation's 370 biggest polluters will continue to pay for their carbon pollution but the cost will be reduced, meaning less cost of living pressures for families and a reduction in costs for small business."

Kong on June 23rd.

To add to his troubles, some European countries are likely to close their airspace to any plane suspected of carrying the fugitive. Snowden's leaking of thousands of classified US intelligence documents has revealed that the National Security Agency is systematically seizing vast amounts of phone and web data. The documents have also indicated that both the UK and French intelligence

agencies allegedly run similarly vast data collection operations, and the US has been eavesdropping on official EU communications.

Trayvon Martin inquiry to continue

US Attorney General Eric Holder said on Monday that an investigation into the "tragic, unnecessary" death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin will continue. The justice department last year opened an inquiry into the unarmed black teenager's death, then stood aside to allow Florida's prosecution to proceed. George Zimmerman, who said he opened fire in self-defence in February 2012, was cleared of murder on Saturday.

Civil rights groups have

pledged further protests over the verdict. Over the weekend, demonstrations across the country against the verdict have been mostly peaceful, with many demanding justice for Martin's family and questioning the fairness of the justice system.

Demonstrations are being planned in up to 100 cities next Saturday in front of federal buildings. President Barack Obama has already acknowledged the case has elicited "strong passions", but emphasised: "We are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken."

The government in the northern indian state of Uttarakhand has said that 5,748 people who remain untraced after last month's devastating floods will now be presumed dead so that the government can begin to give financial compensation to their families. The compensation will amount to 500,000 rupees (£5,528) per victim, officials said, adding that the exact number of deaths may never be known. More than 100,000 people were rescued from the Himalayan mountains after floods and landslides affected more than 4,000 villages. This year's early monsoon rains in the Uttarakhand region are believed to be the heaviest in 80 years. Swollen rivers have swept away entire villages in the state, where there were many travellers in what is peak tourist season. UniTed STATeS

977 counts against Ariel Castro

An Ohio man accused of raping and holding three women captive in his home for about a decade has been charged with hundreds of additional crimes. Ariel Castro, 53, now faces 977 counts of kidnapping, rape, aggravated murder and other counts. The murder charges relate to Mr Castro's alleged starving and beating of a pregnant captive until she miscarried. He has pleaded not guilty to the existing 329 counts against him. Mr Castro was arrested in May after one of the women allegedly held in his Cleveland house escaped. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty has said his office is still determining whether they will seek the death penalty for some of the charges. BrAziL

Man killed by falling cow

A cow which fell through the roof of a house killed a man and narrowly missed his wife. The one-tonne cow was grazing on a hill behind the small house, in the town of Caratinga, when it stepped on to the asbestos roof, which collapsed under its weight. Joao Maria de Souza, 45, was lying in bed when the animal fell on him. He was taken to hospital and died the day after, reportedly of internal bleeding. Local media says this is the third such incident in the region in the past three years. There were no casualties in the two previous incidents. Caratinga is in a hilly area of Minas Gerais, a Brazilian state traditionally known as a cattle raising and dairy producing region.

That there were problems with the UK

Border Agency was well known and it led to the agency being scrapped, but the MPs are now concerned to ensure that the new arrangements, under the direct control of ministers, are not simply a re-branding. There has been a suggestion that there should be no bonuses paid to senior management at the Home Office until the backlog is cleared.

The campaigning group Migration Watch accepts that the present government inherited a system in chaos but says that while the policy is now right greater resources must be provided to bring immigration under control.

English hospital 2 bodies trusts under fire The National Health Service in Britain is this week braced for harsh criticism over “needless” deaths in British hospitals. Poor care, medical errors and management blunders at 14 trusts in England are thought to have resulted in thousands of deaths over a number of years. Labour’s handling of

the health service while in power will come under the spotlight. Current shadow health secretary Andy Burnham was in charge of the health service between June 2009 and May 2010. The latest findings follow the commissioning of a report by Prime Minister David Cameron in February following the Stafford Hospital scandal.

Police have an unusual incident to investigate after being called to the scene of a railway fatality in Somerset – they found the body of a man who had been struck by a train and later found another body nearby. The second body had not been struck by a train and was also that of a male. The discovery was made behind a railway building. Police said it was unclear whether there was any link between the deaths.

An end-of-life regime, designed to offer peaceful, pain-free deaths when used properly, should be phased out in Britain according to an independent review.

The regime, known as the Liverpool Care Pathway, results in treatment, food and water being withdrawn from sedated patients in their final days, but some reports have suggested

The opposition Labour Party in Britain has always had difficulty reconciling its funding and support from the trade unions with its handling of business and labour relations matters and it has not got any easier. Union boss Bob Crow is urging the unions to break ties with Labour leader Ed Miliband and create a new party that “speaks for working people”.

Immigration backlog Pain free death comes as a shock to policy reviewed British MPs The extent of the backlog of immigration cases requiring consideration in Britain has come as a shock, with the suggestion that at the current rate of progress it could take 40 years to clear them.




On the move

The latest news on Britain’s newspapers is that Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is to break its historic ties with Wapping – the scene of trade union unrest that changed the face of the industry in 1986. The operation will share a headquarters on the South Bank of the River Thames with the Dow Jones financial newswire operation and book publisher Harper Collins. The shake-up is the latest move following the hacking scandal and closure of the News of the World national Sunday newspaper. The Sun and The Times newspapers are involved in the move.

Strauss-Kahn was accused of assaulting a chambermaid in a New York hotel in 2011. At the time he was widely expected to stand as a French presidential candidate. He later reached a settlement with his accuser and was never convicted of a crime.


Aircraft fire

One of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets caught fire while parked at London’s Heathrow Airport on Friday last week. While there was no-one on board the Ethiopian Airlines operated aircraft and there were no injuries of any kind, the incident will have come as a blow to Boeing. The aircraft was withdrawn from service earlier this year for modifications after concerns that batteries on board the aircraft could cause fires. However the Air Accident Investigation Branch now say there is no evidence to suggest that the Heathrow fire was caused by the aircraft’s batteries.

Teddy comforts A heavy beer baby foal A heavy metal band's beer is being sold in the UK's Houses of Parliament.

Iron Maiden's Trooper ale is being stocked in the House of Commons' Strangers' Bar, which often sells guest ales to promote more lesserknown British products, and the alcoholic beverage has gone down well after politician Mike Weatherley suggested stocking the beer.

One-month-old hill pony Breeze was found abandoned and dehydrated in Dartmoor National Park, Devon. It is thought that he had stumbled around trying to find his mother even trying to suckle other mares in his desperation. However, the good news is that he has been taken into the local Devon-based Mare and Foal equine sanctuary where it became evident to the workers there that Breeze need something more to comfort him. Along came Buttons, a giant bow-tied teddy bear and Breeze took to his new friend straight away, sleeping happily in his lap. After a few weeks Breeze began to gain his strength due to round-theclock feeding and medication by the staff,

and of course the comfort given to him by Buttons, and he has now taken his first steps once again outside, enjoying his time with his new found friend and fellow foal called Pippin. Michelle Johnson, a stable hand and groomer at the sanctuary's Honeysuckle Farm in Newton Abbot, Devon, said: "He was quite poorly but now he's going from strength to strength. He's becoming a right little character. He's a real cheeky chappie and loves to go out in the field and play with his little friend Pippin. He charges around like a madman and picks up all sorts of things he shouldn't like sticks and stones. We're constantly chasing him around trying to get them out of his mouth."

Exploding relish! A jar of rhubarb chutney has taken the roof off a woman's flat in Henley-onThames after it exploded.

Margaret Goodwin was shocked to find the roof of her flat had temporarily come off after she heard a bang and went down to investigate what the commotion was.

She also found her fridge door had been blown off and there was a chunk taken out of her wall as a result of her exploding rhubarb chutney.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "The noise was absolutely

deafening, even in my bedroom, and when I went to investigate, I wasn't sure at first what had happened. We don't have gas in the building but it was obvious something out of the ordinary had happened. I was quite shaken up."

While the fire brigade were baffled as to what happened, it is thought the chutney exploded due to gas fermenting in the jar.

He said: "As an Iron Maiden fan and an MP, it is a real treat to have this specialist ale as one of the guest ales in parliament – the fact that I also get to try it for the first time on my birthday is just a bonus." Maiden – who are fronted by singer Bruce Dickinson – promoted Trooper during their set at Download Festival, where it was also on sale to revellers, last month.

New name for Fulham FC stand Fans signed a petition calling for the stand to be renamed after former Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed who had owned the club for 16 years. During that time he transformed Fulham’s fortunes and established the club in the Premiership.

New owner Shahid Khan, 62, is a billionaire who built his fortune through an auto parts business. He would not say how much he had paid for the club declaring it “a very private matter”. He is the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Whole of life decision A panel of 17 judges in the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights have decided that locking up someone for the rest of their natural life without any chance of parole is unfair and agaimst their human rights adding that there should be a possibility of release. However, they did not say that the likes of Jeremy Bamber who is among those facing a review would necessarily be automatically released. It just means that there will be periodic reviews and that the UK Government must change the law as it stands. However, the decision has been slammed by many in Westminster – including Prime Minister David Cameron, who said he was "very, very disappointed". A spokesman said: "He is a strong supporter of wholelife tariffs." Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said people would find the ruling "intensely frustrating", adding: "I think this will simply reinforce the desire in this country for wholesale reform of our human rights laws. I suspect that the vast majority of the public think the court is just getting this wrong – at the very least it should be a matter for the British Parliament." However, Eric Allison, a journalist who spent 15 years serving time in British prisons, said it was a "victory for the possibility" of rehabilitating even the worst of criminals. "I've seen people who've done some awful things and I've seen them change their character completely

in prison," he said. The appeal was brought by Gary Vinter, who stabbed his wife in February 2008, and means the cases of Bamber – who killed his parents, sister and two young children in August 1985 – and Peter Moore, who killed four gay men in 1995, will also be considered. Bamber, 51, has been behind bars for more than 25 years for shooting his wealthy adopted parents June and Neville, his sister Sheila Caffell and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas at their farmhouse in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, Essex. In their ruling the judges said it was up to national authorities to decide when a review should take place, but existing laws point to a review happening no later than 25 years after a life sentence is handed down. Current UK law says whole-life tariff prisoners will almost certainly never be released because their offences are deemed to be so serious. Only the Justice Secretary can free them on compassionate grounds – if, for example, they are terminally ill. Until 2003, whole-life tariff prisoners had a right to a review but this was removed in a change to the law. The ruling comes shortly after Home Secretary Theresa May voiced her frustrations with the European courts in the House of Commons in the wake of the lengthy and costly fight to boot radical cleric Abu Qatada out of the country. She said she wanted the Human Rights Act itself to be scrapped.

Nuclear sub back in Gibraltar after 12 years The nuclear-powered submarine HMS Tireless is back in Gibraltar, 12 years after it berthed there for emergency repairs, causing a commotion on mainland Spain.

A brief note from the Command British Forces said: HMS Tireless is visiting Gibraltar for a short stay as part of her scheduled operational tasking, prompting angry


reaction from Spanish ecologists. It is the submarine’s first operational deployment since it underwent repairs in Devonport earlier this year for a “very small” coolant leak in its reactor compartment. HMS Tireless was last docked in Gibraltar in 2004, although it has visited British Gibraltar territorial waters on several occasions since for transfers of men and equipment at sea.

However, it was the submarine’s year-long stay between 2000 and 2001 that angered many environmental campaigners. It underwent repairs during that period after a serious leak was

detected in the primary cooling system of its nuclear reactor. The repairs generated alarm in the Campo de Gibraltar, which led to mass protests and diplomatic tension between the UK and Spain. HMS Tireless, which has been in service for 28 years, was to have been decommissioned this year but was given a respite because of delays in the delivery of the UK’s new Astute-class submarines.

The Spanish environmental group Verdemar-Ecologistas en Acción was swift to condemn the arrival of the submarine in Gibraltar. Spokesman Antonio Muñoz told reporters that

HMS Tireless is “a time bomb that endangers all the inhabitants of this region” and criticised politicians on both sides of the border for not protesting over Britain’s use of Gibraltar as a submarine base. Since the submarine's prolonged visit in 2000, 55 nuclear submarines have made technical stops at Gibraltar.

Two days before the submarine docked, Gibraltarians began to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht, under which Spain ceded Gibraltar to Great Britain in perpetuity. Gibraltar had been seized by the British in 1704.

New 'eye' to spot smuggled cigarettes Customs on the border between Gibraltar and La Linea will get a new "eye" in August – a truck called Medusa that scans vehicles. Its state-of-theart equipment can produce high resolution images of the merchandise it detects hidden in double panels or floors.

Cigarette smuggling was on the increase because of the economic crisis but has risen sharply since the new tax was introduced, forcing many people to seek out the smuggled goods, of which there is no shortage.

Kiosk owners in the

area have welcomed the move but said it was not the solution.

José Bermúdez, president of the kiosk owners association in Cadiz province said if all the vehicles crossing the border had to be stopped to be scanned "that would cause huge queues which would cause more trouble with the Gibraltar government".

Search for Marta's body renewed

The National Police renewed their search on Monday for the body of Marta del Castillo covering 10,000m2 of ground at the Majaloba finca in La Rinconada (Seville province) with a ground penetrating radar and the back-up of a helicopter with a state-ofthe-art detection system. The finca had been searched before when Marta's self-confessed murderer, Miguel Carcaño, finally told them where he believed she was buried. However, the

police did not have the sophisticated equipment they have this time.

Until recently, Carcaño had always denied knowing where the girl's body was and the police were reluctant to believe him this time around, as he has changed his version of the murder several times since Marta disappeared in January 2009. Police and divers searched the Guadalquivir river and local rubbish tips in vain but Marta's parents have never let the matter rest. Her father

Antonio, who is helping police with the search, said he was hopeful that Carcaño had finally told the truth. The police said they intended to search the finca until Wednesday, after which the images produced by the radar and the helicopter equipment would be studied. If they show recent earth movements or anything indicating a buried object, the police will return with old-fashioned digging equipment.

Convenience marriages network smashed The National Police in Granada have dismantled a Central African organisation that arranged marriages of convenience for people wishing to obtain legal residence in Spain. They arrested seven people

and detained another 22 for questioning. The police were alerted to the existence of the operation when they began investigating several Nigerians who had married women from the

EU but were not living with them. The police said the gang was charging up to €3,500 to arrange the marriages, 27 of which have been detected so far. The police are asking for them to be annulled.

Jury finds Bretón guilty of murdering his children A jury has unanimously found José Bretón guilty of murdering his six-year-old daughter Ruth and twoyear-old son Jose and burning their bodies to cover up the crime.

The jury of nine – seven women and two men – delivered its verdict last Friday and the judge is expected to announce the sentence early next week. Bretón has stuck to his story that Ruth and José disappeared from a park in Cordoba on October 8th 2011.

However, he was always the main suspect in a high-profile case that had the police searching for the bodies for months with ground-penetrating radar and trained dogs. Bones which one forensic expert initially identified as belonging to animals were found in the ashes of

an improvised outdoor oven on a finca owned by Bretón’s parents outside Córdoba. However, some months later after extensive tests, other forensic experts said they belonged to children aged around two and six years. The prosecution charged Bretón with killing them as revenge against his wife, Ruth Ortiz, who had left him some months before the disappearance.

During the trial, psychologists described Bretón as extremely cold and detached, while police officers who interrogated him underscored his apparent lack of concern about his own children and his verbal attacks against his wife. Bretón listened impassively while the jury said they considered it a proven fact, after hearing

€200 million to host missile shield

Spain and the uS are on the verge of an agreement over the stationing of four destroyers at the naval base in rota, Cádiz, initially for a period of over four years. The deal is worth €200 million for the public company navantia, which will have the maintenance of the four arleigh Burke class vessels. The destroyers form part of the naTo missile defence shield and are equipped with aegis combat systems capable of intercepting ballistic missiles. The first two ships, the ross and the Donald Cook, are scheduled to arrive at the rota base in 2014, with the Porter and the Carney to follow in 2015. The destroyers will come with 1,100 military personnel and their families, which will boost the local economy in one of the provinces hardest hit by the prolonged recession.

It also considered it proven that he bought large amounts of diesel fuel to incinerate their bodies in Las Quemadillas finca, where he made one last call to his wife – who did not pick up – before going ahead with his plan. His wife listened to the verdict

in a row of seats reserved for the public.

The public prosecutor and the one hired by Ortiz are asking for a 40-year sentence. The judge said the bones cannot be handed over to Ortiz for burial until the High Court confirms the as-yetunspecified jail sentence, probably at the beginning of next year.

The Summer Market will open at the roman archaeological Park (Parque del Yacimiento romano- finca) on friday, July 19th, and will continue every friday until august 31st. Handicrafts will dominate the market but there will also be a space for "creative cuisine and gourmet products", the organisers said. The aim is to give visitors another vision of the town and also to create jobs. The market will be open from 7 pm to midnight and admission is free.

Iberian lynx brought back A song for the from brink of extinction The Iberian lynx was nearing extinction a decade ago but thanks to a conservation programme involving hunters, farmers and the tourist industry, its numbers have tripled from 94 to 312.

The project, which is jointly funded by the Junta de Andalucia and the European Union, has been singled out once again by the EU as an exemplary conservation programme. Brussels will now fund 40 per cent of the

€26 million needed to extend the project into the neighbouring regions of Extremadura, Castile-La Mancha and Murcia, as well as Portugal.

Miguel Ángel Simón, the director of the programme for the recovery of the lynx in Andalusia, said: "We can't claim victory yet but now there is hope." Simon added that when a first census was carried out in the lynx's key habitats in the Sierra Morena and the

Doñana national park, there were few lynxes and the rabbit population had also been severely depleted by disease. Rabbits are the lynx's main source of food. It was decided to breed lynxes in captivity in case they became extinct in the wild.

The current project was launched in 2006 after the Junta de Andalucia convinced farmers and hunting clubs that saving the lynx was in everyone's interest.

Lynx-spotting has also become a tourist attraction. The project has created 31 full-time jobs, and forestry work carried out under the programme has provided much-needed work for hundreds of small businesses in the area.

The third phase of the programme will begin in May next year, when lynxes from Doñana will into be introduced and other Portugal regions.

Court puts anti-eviction decree on hold The Constitutional Court has ordered a temporary injunction against the controversial antievictions decree passed earlier this year by the Junta de Andalucia government until it can resolve the constitutionality of the measure.

The government filed a

suit against the law on June 28th. The court said it was ordering a temporary halt in applying the decree as a precautionary measure until it can study the case. The decree protected the most vulnerable from being evicted from their homes as a result of

foreclosures. It also allowed the Junta de Andalucia to take over any empty property owned by the banks and to let people who have been evicted live there for up to three years, with the regional government paying a nominal rent to the banks.

However, last month

Brussels warned that such a measure could harm the financial health of the banks, and asked the Rajoy government for explanations.

The Constitutional Court’s injunction will be enforced for a maximum of five months until the merits of the case are decided.

The Local Memo from Voice Madrid

Muriel Pilkington


fter Bárcenas' latest "revelations" on Monday, Mariano Rajoy stated quite categorically that he does not intend to resign and will complete the term of office that the voters elected him for. Once again howls of anguish from the Left. Socialist leader Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba called for Rajoy's resignation on Sunday but today (Tuesday) he announced that he will present a motion of censure if Rajoy refuses to be grilled in Parliament this week. United Left leader and Commie troublemaker Cayo Lara has vowed to take the fight for an early election "to the streets" but I doubt he'll get many people out during this heat. The rest of the opposition groups can't make up their minds about what to do so I suspect all this hullabaloo will gently fade away, especially as everyone is going on holiday.


also don't know why Rajoy's enemies think he's terrified of Bárcenas. The PM insists that he can't go into details about a case that is currently under investigation in the courts and will only make a statement once the full facts are known sometime later this year.


eanwhile, one interesting detail emerged on Monday. Bárcenas claims he has given envelopes full of slush money to all the top PP people since 1990, with one exception – Jose Maria Aznar. So here we have a party of villains whose former leader is purer than driven snow. This brings me to a report I read last week in the online newspaper El Confidencial Digital. According to ECD, when Bárcenas realised that Rajoy was not going to get him off the hook he started looking for other allies – and found one in Pedro J. Ramirez, the owner of the El Mundo newspaper and PP supporter. However, a little bird in Madrid told me he'd had a

Martin Delfín


Writes for the English language version of


don't know why Mariano Rajoy's enemies believe Judge Pablo Ruz is swallowing all of Luis Bárcenas' statements hook, line and sinker because the latter is now telling him just the opposite of what he told him a few months back. The poor judge is to be pitied for having been landed the Herculean task of sorting through all of Bárcenas' lies, half truths and omissions. Some may feel that Ruz is too young for such a task – 34 – but he doesn't seem to have an ideological axe to grind, unlike Judge Baltasar Garzon, whose shoes he stepped into when Garzon was suspended from the Gurtel corruption case, so I think we can trust his judgement.


Mariano Rajoy

serious falling out with Rajoy some weeks back and is now backing the "Aznar for prime minister" movement. Pedro J. – as he is known – now has first shot at everything to do with the Bárcenas case because his very best friend, Javier Gómez de Liaño, is now Barcenas' lawyer. To cap it all, according to ECD Aznar really believes he can save Spain, once Rajoy is out of the way.


o poor Rajoy now has a lawyer leaking all the juicy details to a newspaper owner who delights in controversy and also needs to up his paper's circulation figures if he wants to stay in business. And pulling as many threads as he can – surreptitiously in the background – is Aznar, the man who picked Rajoy to take over from him when he decided not run again in the March 2004 election.


any people are already likening the Bárcenas case to a soap opera, and it's getting more and more like those over-the-top Mexican soaps with every passing day. Nobody could come up with baddies as bad as the ones in the Mexican soaps and we're having a repeat here in real life – except that for some the baddies are Rajoy and company and for others they're everyone else. However, I suspect Rajoy will stick it out and – as in all good soap operas – it will all come right in the end.


don't believe for one moment that Rajoy's enemies believe a man who even looks like a mafioso. But the opposition – and Aznar – couldn't get rid of Rajoy at the height of the economic crisis and the dreadful cuts he had to make so now they're using Bárcenas to create a political scandal of such proportions that it will derail his government and bring on an early election that they – of course – will win. Dream on, sweeties.

e have now arrived at a critical moment for this government. Luis Bárcenas, the former Partido Popular (PP) treasurer is singing, and what an opera he has given us so far. He claims that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his second-in-command at the PP, María Dolores de Cospedal, the secretary general who also happens to be the Castilla-La Mancha regional premier, each received from him €25,000 in €500 notes in 2010, and more money before that. He has turned over to High Court Judge Pablo Ruz a host of material that purportedly implicates many PP officials and could stand to bring this government down – if his evidence holds weight.


s this entire Bárcenas affair plays out in the press – with all its juicy allegations of sneaky backroom deals and text messages from the prime minister who tries to give his powerful former friend a little bit of “ánimo” or encouragement as he faces an uphill legal battle – Rajoy and the rest of the PP totally missed their mark. They needed to discredit this individual from day one and stop being so evasive with the press. The La Moncloa press conference on Monday with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, who was on a visit, was a complete farce. Only two Spanish media reporters were allowed to ask questions.


ven if he says he is not, Rajoy really appears frightened of Bárcenas; the prime minister’s reactions have been less than forceful, and he is more afraid of the reporters’ questions when he should fear most his own answers. “The rule of law does not bow to blackmail,” Rajoy said on Monday after El Mundo published over the weekend a list of text messages the prime minister and Bárcenas exchanged over the past several years. He told reporters that he cannot respond to “rumours on a daily basis”. Well, this is a crucial period for the Rajoy administration, and the more openness and explanations given, the better for the PP.


few weeks after Rajoy was elected in 2011, I wrote that the PP would not be able to ride out the torrential economic storm that still hovers over us. This was way before the Bárcenas case really began to snowball. Now the opposition Socialists and their partners in left field, Izquierda Unida (IU), are calling for the prime minister’s resignation. The Socialists want someone in the PP to take over the reins of government – maybe Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saénz Santamaría – the IU wants to call early elections. Will the opposition


Luis Bárcenas

ever agree on common ground?

s this scandal unfolds, the markets are sure to play their best. Spain doesn’t need a political crisis at this moment when it is just entering the threshold of recovery. Any rumours suggesting that the Rajoy government could collapse will send the premium risk rate skyrocketing. On Monday it came down to 315 basis point after rising on last week’s concerns that Portugal’s government was about to fold. “For the moment the market is taking the view that the Bárcenas case does not imply an immediate exit for Rajoy,” Javier Galán, a fund manager at Renta 4 in Madrid, told Reuters on Monday.


ut this calm before the storm won’t last long. As the Socialists and other opposition groups try to muster up enough public support for Rajoy to step down, the government ventures on shaky ground. The PP is divided into factions, and those adversary groups will continue to beef up their forces until there is an implosion. "Almost everyone in the party is convinced that the situation is beyond repair. The best option for Rajoy is to organise a process of handing over leadership to someone else in the party," one PP parliamentarian, who asked not to be named, said in an interview with Reuters.


ut Rajoy insists that he will ride out the storm and complete his term in 2015. "I will defend political stability and I will fulfil the mandate given to me by Spanish voters," he said Monday. His approval rating has dropped and those PP allies at El Mundo have abandoned him. For the moment, Rajoy has two choices: he can come clean and explain this mess to Spaniards or resign for the economic good of country and allow this scandal to play out in the High Court.

One of the coast’s greatest entertainers wins “Slimmer of the Year”

Wow! This sums up in one word the opinion of the assembled audience at this year’s Cambridge 800 Convention held recently in Marbella. And what a gathering it was! With top executives from the UK Parent Company, Cambridge Nutritional Foods Ltd, Directors and staff of the Spanish arm Cambridge 800, together with Cambridge 800 Consultants in Spain and their clients – all awaiting with bated breath for the results of the awards … so well deserved after months of successfully succeeding to lose weight!

The first half of the conference included the story so far for Cambridge 800 since its launch, introduced by Sarah Hawes, Director in Spain and Clive Norton, Commercial and Board Director. This was followed by the more serious side of weight loss, delivered by Professor Anthony Leeds, Cambridge Medical Director who addressed global health issues and the

worldwide ongoing independent medical research conducted by Cambridge, in countries as diverse as Vietnam, Malaysia and Denmark amongst others. The brand, Cambridge 800 was launched in Spain in January 2012 so this convention was the first time the Company could award such accolades to those who had chosen to lose weight the Cambridge way! There were six finalists for the coveted title of ‘Cambridge 800 Slimmer of the Year 2013', all proudly attending to show off their new figures. Then came the award for the 'Consultant of the Year 2013' – the strength behind the slimmers, who provide oneto-one support and advice throughout the weight loss programme and the weight loss journey of their customer. The awards were presented by Sarah and Clive as well as the charming Mike Swinburne, UK finance and board director. After a short break at the end of the day, delegates relaxed under the stars whilst dining in the beautiful gardens of the hotel, listening to excellent operatic and modern renditions by the very talented Arran Harding and were enthralled by the

fabulous display of outstanding Flamenco dancing accompanied by Spanish brothers Los Guillen on guitars! Even the eventual winner of 'Slimmer of the Year 2013' Mr Robert Blyde (stage name Rob Stevens) gave a truly wonderful performance – he surely is a potential contender for the X-Factor! He has also gone through to the International Slimmer of the year awards so, good luck Rob, bring the trophy home to us all!

Rob, one has to say, was a “big man”, as pictured left. When he started the diet on February 1st, Rob tipped the scales at 22st 8lbs. On 1st June, when they had to put their weights in for the awards he was 16st 3 making a loss of a whopping 6 and a half stone within 4 months (pictured, right, in a slimmer frame too!). He found the diet very simple to follow and there were no supplements or vitamins to be taken as they are all included in the diet itself. Rob is now one of the Cambridge 800 consultants you can diet with and he can do one-on-one consulting or you can join one of his many classes. For more details of the classes run by Rob, call him on 602 587 579. One other thing about Rob is his fabulous voice and, as any singer will tell you, to keep your voice in tip-top condition, you have to stay healthy. Despite his rapid weight loss, Rob has

remained super fit and healthy which is something that is rarely achieved on faddy diets. Rob tells us that he absolutely loved the diet and clearly has achieved everything he set out to.

Rob owns the Manhattan Show Bar in Edificio Iris on the Avenida Gamonal, Benalmadena Costa and anyone who has heard his rendition of Nessun Dorma will tell you that the hairs on your arms and the back of your neck stand on end – that’s how good it is! Then just hear his Bat Out Of Hell and you’ll realised what a fantastically versatile performer this man is. If you want to go and hear Rob and many other artistes at the Manhattan Show Bar, call the venue for more details on 605 663 335 – but after mid-day please! Cambridge 800 is the proven and nutritional way to lose weight and more

importantly to keep it off long term. No dieting programme is easy – you still need willpower – but with the help of such professional products manufactured in the UK by Cambridge, and supplied to Cambridge 800 in Spain, teamed with the enormous inspirational help and support provided by the consultants, losing weight and keeping it off has never been quite so easy.

If you have a weight problem and would like to really succeed in losing weight, Cambridge 800 is the solution; it's only a phone call away. Just think, next year it could be you featured in photographs like these! For more information contact Sarah Hawes, Director on 952 58 63 24 or email

At the end of May they launched a campaign to find more volunteers, and this motivated more people to help support Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice in their work. Thanks to these new volunteers, they are able to extend the opening times in their Marbella shop that will now be: Monday to Friday, 10:00 – 13:30 and 17:30 – 20:30 Saturdays 10:00 – 13:30

The charity shop in

Marbella is located on the Avenida del Mar, behind Alameda Park, in the heart of downtown Marbella. Garments and accessories for ladies, men, and children can be found, at spectacular prices. And your purchase will help them to continue “Giving Life to Days”, with their “Special Kind of Caring”.

If you have anything that you no longer like to wear but is still in good, clean condition, it may well be an absolute treasure for somebody else so, don’t forget you can also take your donations to the shop within public opening hours. Cudeca say: “Thank you so much for your support and we hope to see you soon at the Cudeca Hospice Charity Shop in Marbella!”

A very good reason for summer cheerfulness A summer celebration was held recently at The Tamisa Golf Hotel on behalf of the animal charity PAD, and now the animals in their care have something to celebrate too, hanks to very generous donations by people attending both the PAD dinner and the Royal British Legion, Fuengirola Branch, dinner on the same evening.

Money was raised from “guess the number of corks in the jar” at €1 a guess (we had guesses all the way from 80 to 800 corks!) followed by an auction, and part of the ticket sales went to the charity. After everything had been

counted, we are pleased to announce that €1500 was made to help the animals.

PAD have many animals that need new homes. Some have been dumped by their owners – often when they have been in a so-called loving home for years – and spending their remaining years in a pen is just not nice for them. Some have been rescued from being put to sleep and others have just turned up at the refuge door one way or another.

So, if you have room in your hearts for a dog that is desperately seeking love and comfort, call Lisa from PAD on 658 351 642 or see the PAD website: and pop along to the shelter to find your new very best friend. Have a look at Micha and Milo in our “Pet of the Week” section, right.


We have just been told about a little Yorkie who went missing nine weeks ago when he was possibly spooked by the canon fire from the town when the Alhaurin el Grande Feria was on. He escaped from his owner’s house. A friend of hers saw him rushing across the traffic in the area around Mercadona but was unable to catch him in his state of panic. The owner, an older lady who has mobility problems is worried sick

after having looked everywhere for him to no avail and just wants to know if he’s safe. She understands that after such a long time, someone may have taken him in and now wants to keep him. She would be OK with that but needs to know that he’s all right. He is 8-years-old. He is micro-chipped and his name is Tay. If you have any information please call her on 676 502 224 or all The News on 952 454 491.

Pets of the Week


Dear Kym, Here is the link to the RAFA webpage on the subject of EHIC. There are always exceptions, but as a general rule this is what everyone should do to get or renew their card. I have had direct dealings with a situation where a UK pensioner, resident in Spain, did not have his card when admitted to an NHS hospital (he had ignored the letter), and was presented with a bill for £2400. When he obtained the card with our help, it was presented to the NHS hospital who eventually cancelled the bill. Don´t get caught out. http://www.rafabenalm written by Jack Griggs Thought this might be helpful. Kym.

Riding to success

Estepona Floral Art Club are proud to announce this year’s annual charitable donation will go towards the fundraising efforts of one their own committee members, Sally Welch, who is aiming to complete a gruelling 400Km sponsored cycle ride later this year. The photograph shows Sally receiving a cheque from Lesley Storey (right), the outgoing Chairman,

Sally says, “I had a milestone birthday in November and wanted to celebrate this somehow. I decided to celebrate my good health as some of my pals are not as fortunate as I am. Because I am a healthy person I choose to challenge myself with a sponsored cycle trip in Cuba this October. I hate bicycles with a passion, always have! So I have bought a bicycle (named Bella) and have begun a love-hate relationship with her. This is my personal challenge as I have to be fit enough to complete 400kms in 5 days over all types of terrain. The other part is to

I do have a just giving page which is soresally. I was over the moon about the donation from Lesley – it was very gratefully received. So yes I'm working hard on my fitness, the results are OK, the human body is an amazing machine when you treat it well – so watching my diet, spinning classes three times a week plus interval training, plus walking and the worst bit, regular long bike rides dressed in Lycra!”

“Under The Moonlight” night with T.O.P.S. T.O.P.S. is holding a charity cabaret evening on Saturday 10th August at Venta La Recta (on the Alhaurin el Grande – Alhaurin de la Torre Road, near the Kadampa hotel). The evening starts at 8.00pm and will be held outdoors under cover of the front terrace.

A special (cheap) twocourse menu will be on offer for anyone who requires a meal (payable on the night direct to the

Venta), or alternatively just come along and enjoy the show. Tickets (for the show only) are priced at 5 euros and a donation from the proceeds will be given to the local “Gift of Life” animal charity.

This will be the third cabaret evening the group has held at this particular venue and, if past performances are anything to go by, the evening should be a sellout. The intention is for the night to be relaxed,

Afternoon Tea Age Care's Summer Tea Party was held on Wednesday, 10th July 2013 at the Hotel Tamisa Golf. More than 100 of the local more mature English speaking community attended Age Care's annual Summer Tea Party. A traditional afternoon tea was served – salmon & cucumber and egg & cress finger sandwiches (with crusts cut off!) and quiche followed by scones with jam & clotted cream. Guests came from Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Calahonda areas. Age Care volunteers were on hand to transport guests and a coach had been laid on to bring others from the

Manila Bar, the Age Care Coffee Morning venue in Fuengirola. During the afternoon, guests enjoyed a Pearly Kings & Queens Show by Salon Varietes which ended in a wonderful singalong! The afternoon continued with more music from Jo Layte which got the feet tapping and the dance floor was filled with guests and volunteers tripping the light fandango. Christine Thompson, PR Officer, was on hand to record the event and said: "It's wonderful to see everyone smiling and enjoying themselves. You can see photos on our website:".

informal, friendly and fun, and everybody is welcome to come along and be entertained.

RELEASE MONEY FROM YOUR UK PENSION QROPS (Qualifying Recognized Overseas Pension Scheme) have been available to ex-pats since April 2006.

There is no mystery to QROPS, they are basically the same as your UK pension but offer better benefits than the UK. The process is very simple and takes approximately three months to complete. In the UK you may not take any benefits before you are 55 years of age. If you are 50 or above and have been outside the UK for 5 complete tax years you may withdraw 25/30% and then an income at 55. If you are pension rich but cash poor, this could be a way of solving temporary financial difficulties. You have nothing to lose by asking but everything to gain. We look forward to hearing from you To find if you qualify to release money now call 951 206 138 or email or visit and complete the free assessment form.

This Means Pointless

The Lo n e Ran geR Directed by Gore Verbinski Starring: Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson This latest Disney offering from Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, the team behind the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise and starring Cap’n Jack Sparrow himself in the shape of Johnny Depp, was fully expected to be one of the biggest blockbuster hits of the summer.

What could go wrong? Bringing to the big screen the legend that is the Lone Ranger, beloved by those who remember the radio and television series, and his laconic ally Tonto seemed to be a no brainer.

Disney splashed the cash with a budget well in excess of $200 million, but with an opening weekend box office in the US hovering around the $30 million mark this needs to do big business elsewhere around the world if studio executives are to rest easy.

It’s an origins movie, introducing us to pacifist lawyer John Reid (Hammer), who travels to the Wild West determined to live by his civilised Eastern values. But when his brother is murdered the pacifist turns avenger and he swears to exact

Evil Dead


The vigilante’s key target is the baddie rail road boss Latham Cole (Tom Wilkinson) and the scene is set for excess, eccentricity, irreverence and comedy one-liners combined with some fullon action.

The story is told through the eyes of Tonto and the critics are pretty unanimous that Depp brings the worst of Jack Sparrow to the screen, and at a bottom numbing two and a half hours there’s plenty of time to watch

Jack, er Tonto, gurning his way through another scene.

Still, everyone agrees that the last 20 minutes or so is a gripping, action packed finale involving a runaway train – plus the use of the original William Tell Overture theme music – so go expecting good summer some entertainment but not the best movie you have ever seen.

Whether it’s ‘Hi Ho Silver, Away!’ to a sequel or this year’s John Carpenter time will tell.

Release date: July 16th

Director: Fede Alvarez Starring: Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Shiloh Fernandez

You leave a staple gun lying around an isolated cabin, you're asking for trouble. But that's the least of the mortal worries in Evil Dead, the 2013 reboot of Sam Raimi's 1981 kook-classic horror picture. This version takes the same general outline as the original –

revenge, aided by Tonto.

young people at a cabin, forbidden book of occult spells, all hell breaking loose – and plays it as an intense, blood-soaked exercise in nonstop action.

If any of this had real force, or if any of the characters had more than

a single character trait to prop them up, maybe Evil Dead could succeed as a genre exercise. Certainly, director Fede Alvarez has the technical skills to horrify an audience for 90 minutes, and the film is gruelling in its quest to

find a grisly touch that will top the previous scene.


oor Reese Witherspoon. It seems like her career has taken a serious nosedive since she won the Oscar back in 2005. Before that Oscar win she was America's Sweetheart, had a lucrative career, was a memorable comedic actress who commanded with dramatic temperament and who had already secured a place in everyone's heart with her rich performances in “Election”, “Legally Blond” and “Walk the Line”.


ut “This Means War” won’t win her any awards any time soon. This film is romantic comedy/ action which really doesn’t work. You can imagine how lame the plot is if they had to add action sequences to make it interesting. The plot is about two CIA agents who both fall for Lauren (Witherspoon) and basically try and win her heart. Tom Hardy plays the innocent Tuck and Chris Pine the irritating, arrogant wind bag.


he director’s view of the CIA  involves wiretapping people you date, starting shootouts and basically doing anything but your job. It makes John McClane look like a real-life cop. Anyone who really works for the CIA must roll their eyes when they see poorly researched and frankly unbelievable nonsense like this.


he action scenes are slicked up and feel like a rip on something by Michael Bay, but they are laced with so much

preposterousness that they fail to make any real impact. But this film fails mostly because of the core love story, which makes little sense – especially Lauren's final decision (even though it was expected when you consider where it leads).


ersonally, I think she made the wrong decision. Chris Pine has got terrible skin, even through all that make up and his eyes really freak me out, really untrustworthy. Funnily enough, I never noticed how bad his skin was in “Star Trek”, perhaps they had better make-up people!


eese is charming enough, but there's not a lot of chemistry between her and either of the two male leads, so I wasn't really rooting for her to end up with either of them. I'm not sure how this ever looked good to her on paper, but maybe the original script worked better than what ended up here. Chelsea Handler has some funny moments, but adds to the oddness in tone. So overall, a disappointment. If you are really looking for purely mindless entertainment then maybe this will work for you, but keep your expectations really low!

Your roots are calling you; echoes from the past fill your mind and you long to be with those who you consider to be family. The sense of unity and teamwork that you desire will drive you to see what is possible when two or more are focused on obtaining the same goals and objectives. Take things slowly and think things through carefully making sure that it all makes sense, don’t let others rush you into making important decisions. You could be attempting to talk yourself into feeling something different from what you do, the key is to remember that your emotions are not at all rational and there is no way to make any sense out of them. This is, however, a perfect time for resolving any differences you have with a loved one. Delays to do with travelling or appointments are possible and this can be frustrating, you need to dig deep to find tolerance this week. The time you have spent lately in a state of confusion or frustrated that things are not moving as fast as they were planned to do is likely to be advantageous in the long run. What we perceive as unlucky at a certain time can often be a blessing in disguise, it is just that we cannot see around the next corner. This week will have you rethinking everything with respect to how you spend your time and who you spend it with; it is all about quality not quantity. Remain positive and patient this week Cancer, staying cool but methodical will serve you well. It could have felt as if you have been carrying someone’s weight around with you but now you are being given the reins and put in charge of navigation, so shed that load that is weighing the chariot down, set the course that is the easiest on the horses and follow your internal compass. Be in the moment and the pathway will open before you. Others may have been trying to influence your perceptions in the past and right now this will cause you to rethink or reconsider the choices that you must soon make. There is an opportunity this week to experience the unthinkable, whether you see a vision, experience a lost loved one vividly in a dream or an emotional shift occurs. There is much taking place that is beyond your control, if you have to force things to occur, you cannot expect them to last. Someone you know may help get you connected to someone who has the power to help you like never before. Do not dismiss this invite, make the effort to go, you never know what prosperity will come from it. You have already succeeded in something so there is no need to keep fighting or to be on red alert, lighten up and have some fun; your reward is on its way. Even daily chores seem to flow with greater ease – stop worrying.


A set of circumstances has occurred which seems a complete inconvenience, however, the universe works in mysterious ways and you could find that this inconvenience encourages you to perceive another part of your life with fresh eyes. There is a gift in an unexpected package for you. This is not the time to procrastinate either, tackle little problems as they occur and this will September 23rd - prevent bigger issues developing.

You possibly don’t have all the information yet to make an informed decision, this week is loaded with choices, but you need a bit more time to make the best decision. When Mercury begins turning direct on 20th, things will become clearer. When others communicate with you this week, they could be saying one thing but meaning something much deeper. Make sure you ask adequate questions to really get to the bottom of it.

Born with a feel the fear but do it anyway attitude there have been moments when people may have thought you were totally right out of your mind to be doing something, but in the end, you proved them wrong. You are not held back by some of the restraints of the other signs. The road less travelled takes courage and your inner impulses will be pulling you this way. A long term dream can turn into reality. The things that you say or do will have a great impact on others right now in particular family members. You have an opportunity to rewrite history, there could be similar events happening and you have a choice to change the outcome – nothing is ever exactly the same. Gatherings with family members or close friends will be worth remembering. It is like you will be learning how to have fun all over again. Take the risk and chances you know are right for you. With so much focus now in those areas that need improvement it will be easy for you to direct your energy on what needs to be fixed, which would be particularly ideal in the area of fitness and exercise. This is an excellent time to re-commit to an old plan and to set things in a better direction. You may need to consider what the real motivations and intentions of others may be, their words may say one thing, but actions are the exact opposite. Get agreements in writing. Your instinct is strong and it might have you taking risks when otherwise you normally wouldn’t, however, taking risks can result in a beneficial outcome. You may need to open your eyes a little wider, increase your radar, because there could be something going on behind the scenes. There is a bigger reason for all that is occurring so make sure you do not pass judgement too quickly. Use your powers of observation to see beyond the surface issues.

Just one look at this chocolate and banana treat is enough to know it won't stay in the cake tin for long. Y ou can bake this cake a day or two ahead as the bananas will keep it really moist

Chocolate & banana cake Ingredients:

(Makes 1 large loaf cake)

• 100ml sunflower oil, plus extra to grease • 175g caster sugar • 175g self-raising flour • half tsp bicarbonate of soda • 4 tbsp cocoa powder • 100g chocolate chips or chunks • 175g very ripe bananas • 3 medium eggs, 2 separated • 50ml milk

For the topping 100g milk chocolate 100ml soured cream handful dried banana chips, roughly chopped.

• • •

Directions Prep: 20 mins Cook: 1 hr, 15 mins 1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment (allow it to come 2cm above top of tin). Mix the sugar, flour, bicarb, cocoa and chocolate in a large bowl. 2. Mash the bananas in a bowl and stir in the whole egg plus 2 yolks, followed by the oil and milk. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Quickly stir the wet banana mixture into the dry ingredients,

Last week some friends and I went out for lunch. I don't think I am supposed to name the eatery in question. It was a Spanish family run restaurant with ample space indoors and a spacious, shady patio. The menu del día cost €7.50.

The idea of a menu del día supposedly started in the Franco years so that labourers and manual workers could all afford a good, nutritious meal at mid-day. It usually consists of a choice of starters, a choice of main courses and a choice of either coffee or desert. It is accompanied by wine or water and is usually wholesome, home cooked food at an incredibly reasonable price – sometimes as low as €6 and maybe €12 or €15 in the more select establishments or closer to the coast. So, arriving at your restaurant of choice, you need to specify how many people will be dining. Una mesa para dos - a table for two Una mesa para ocho - a table for eight.

En la sombra - in the shade Cerca de la ventana - near the window Una mesa lejos de la puerta - a table far from the door

Para beber - to drink Para mi, tinto de verano - for me, red wine with lemonade. Para mi, una cerveza - for me, a beer. If you can't make your mind up what to have : No hemos elegido todavía - We haven't decided yet.

And if you are feeling adventurous and want to try the local speciality ¿Cuál es la especialidad de la casa? What is the local speciality? ¡Buen provecho! - Enjoy your meal. Hasta la próxima - Until next time. Valerie

Can you advise me on the best way to clean and sterilise my hair brushes and combs? Joan, Coin Dear Joan

Firstly you need to remove all the hair from your brushes with your comb. Fill your sink with hot soapy water, (a

dandruff shampoo works really well as they are formulated to remove dead skin cells and product build up). Place your brushes and combs in the water and swish them around, hold the hair utensils by their handles and stir them in the water, this helps loosen the dirt and oils that have dried to them. It is better to leave your brushes and combs in the water all day and give

them a quick swish every hour or so. Rinse with cold water, as cold water removes soap more easily than warm or hot water, finally wipe them with a towel. Dear Calvin

I have recently bought a convertible car. My hair is quite long so I scrape it back into a ponytail to keep it off my face. Since doing this my hair has snapped in places and is now all at odd lengths. With this summer weather I don't want to put the roof up, what can I do? Angela, Costa


Dear Angela

Having had a convertible myself, I know the dangers. Driving along we feel nice and cool and don't realise how strong the sun’s rays are. The best way to protect your hair is to wear a tight

fitting hat. If this is not for you I suggest before driving you spray with a leave-in conditioner such as 'Paul Mitchells's Dramatic Repair'. Tying you hair back in a pony tail with tight bands can cause tension breakage. Try using clips instead or a bulldog clip as they will be much kinder to your hair. Dear Sue

I have worn gel nails for a number of years but really feel it is time to give my nails a rest. Where do I start? Nicky, Mijas Costa Dear Nicky

In my opinion the best way to give your nails a rest is to grow them off. Any gel dissolver such as acetone will destroy your nails. Firstly keep them as short as possible and very gently file the ridge to make it smoother and less noticeable but make sure

you do this after applying nail oil to prevent you filing the new nail. You will be surprised at how quickly the nail will grow, just apply nail oil everyday to condition the new growth. Please don't pick them off as you will do untold damage to the new nail. Dear Sue

I have really bad bags under my eyes. I always use a moisturiser every day and put plenty on around my eyes but it doesn't improve them. Any ideas? Chloe, Arroyo de la Miel Dear Chloe

There are many things you can do to help improve this before resorting to surgery. Firstly ensure that anything you put near the eye area is specifically for eyes, the skin here is thinner and doesn't have the underlying muscle

structure that the rest of the face has. Generally speaking an eye gel will help with the shadows and bags much more efficiently than an eye cream.

I suggest Guinot's 'Gel Anti-Fatigue for eyes'. Apply twice a day sweeping under the eye from the direction of the ear towards the nose. I would suggest you visit a salon for a course of non surgical face lifting which will drain excess fluid from under the eye and a course of manual lymphatic drainage, these both remove the fluid and tissue waste that accumulates under the eye and gives us the bags. Get plenty of rest as when we are tired they appear worse and always be very gentle when applying gels and make up. Never go to bed with eye make up on as this will congest the area making it worse.

Fat-boosting gene mystery 'solved' The mystery of a genetic flaw which greatly increases the risk of obesity in one in six people has been solved by an international team led by researchers at University College London. There is a strong family link with obesity, and a person's genetic code is thought to play a major role in the risk of their becoming overweight. People have two copies of an obesity gene called FTO – one from each parent – and each copy comes in a high- and a low-risk form.

Their study showed it made fatty foods more tempting and altered levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin. The researchers tested two groups of men. All were a

normal weight, but one group had the high-risk FTO genes and the other was low risk. The first tests looked at levels of the hormone ghrelin either side of a meal in 10 men from each group. Levels of the hormone, which makes people hungry, did not fall as far in the high-risk patients after the meal. Their ghrelin levels also began to climb more quickly. In separate tests, a series of brain scans after a meal showed further differences between the two groups. Men with the high-risk genes found pictures of high-fat foods more appealing than the lowrisk men. The researchers said they were "biologically programmed to eat more": "Their brain is set up to be particularly

interested in anything to do with high-calorie food." They added that understanding how FTO affected the odds of becoming overweight would help patients. Commenting on the findings, Prof Steve Bloom, from Imperial College London, said: "We know the tendency to overeat in a society with too much food and no need for exercise is inherited.

"Slowly we are discovering the factors which make us overweight and this study, encompassing not only demonstration of a higher level of hunger hormone, ghrelin, but also changes in the brain associated with ghrelin's action, is an important step forward." The study was funded by the Rosetrees Trust and the Medical Research Council.

Disaster movie? Not in the least! This gentle film upholds the idea of helping people and truthfulness

But that doesn’t stop one filmgoer’s moans … and it’s the first complaint about the film in its 42-year history of predominantly Sunday viewing

An irate film fan has complained that the muchloved ‘The Railway Children’, first released 42 years ago, encourages children to play on railway track according to a report from the British Board of Film Classification. Starring Bernard Cribbins, Jenny Agutter, Sally Thomsett this is the film’s first ever complaint. The BBFC sardonically added: “While aware of the real dangers of such behaviour, the BBFC judged that it was very unlikely that ‘The Railway Children’ would promote such dangerous activity. ‘The Railway Children’ is set in the Edwardian period and trains and access to railway property are very different today. The

film also demonstrates the potential harm to children if proper care is not taken.”

The film holds a 12A certificate that is probably the most contentious of all the categories awarded to film and is seen as the grade that is most attached to the views of the person giving the grade. It also shows the children flagging down the train, thereby saving lives, after they discover a landslide blocking the tracks that the traindriver cannot see. With 134 complaints, the most complained about film was The Woman In Black starring Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe with viewers saying that its 12A certificate was far

too lenient. The BBFC felt however that the historical setting and familiarity with the source material “lessened the sense of horror”. It proved more contentious than ‘The Hunger Games’, which saw children fight to the death with knives and axes. It received 43 complaints. The 12A certificate means that children younger than 12 can still watch the films if accompanied by an adult to pay for a ticket. The most complained about film of the last decade, ‘The Dark Knight’, was a 12A. However the BBFC felt that many of the film’s 364 complaints were prompted by a campaign in The Daily Mail.

Joss Stone decision Re-united

Junior Bradshaw, 32 acted as driver for Kevin Liverpool, 35, who had devised a plan to kidnap, hold her for a ransom of over £1 million then kill soul singer Joss Stone in her Devon home that she lived in and rarely bothered to lock the door as she felt so safe there. The pair had driven from Manchester with an arsenal of weapons and notes written by Liverpool stating that they intended to behead her because of her links to the royal family. But the bungling pair were arrested in Cullumpton on the way to her house after suspicious residents called the police in June 2011. A search of the onebedroom flat Bradshaw and Liverpool shared in St Stephen's Close, Longsight, Manchester

also recovered a self-cocking crossbow and a BB gun. The pair were convicted by a jury in April of conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to rob following a three-week trial at Exeter Crown Court. Liverpool was sentenced immediately to life imprisonment and told to serve a minimum term of 10 years and eight months' imprisonment. Sentencing against Bradshaw was adjourned for the preparation of psychiatric reports. An Exeter Crown Court official said: "Mr Bradshaw was sentenced

to 18 years' imprisonment for conspiracy to murder. The case was listed as a mention but an application was made to proceed to sentence. It was not indicated before today's hearing."

Twin brothers who were separated as babies have been reunited after more than 40 years following a chance encounter in China's Sichuan province. In late June, a friend of Chengdu resident Zeng Yong, 41, said he had met a man in the city of Neijiang, 200km away, whom he claimed was identical to Mr Zeng. Mr Zeng, a hotelier, travelled to Neijiang, home to close to four million people, to see the man for himself. Amazingly, on meeting Liu Yonggang, a junior manager at the city's bus company, he realised he was his long-lost twin brother. Due to their parents' poverty, the pair had been put up for adoption in 1972 when only a few months old. They were

taken by different families. Since being reunited, the brothers have tracked down their estranged 74year-old mother. She was living in Jianning, having remarried after the death of the boys' father a decade earlier. Mr Liu's colleagues at the bus company have organised a party to celebrate the reunion and welcome the new family members to Neijiang.

Opinion Alhaurin

Judi Rosevear Some weeks ago, you wrote a letter recommending Bella Vista Camp Site. As the site is less than an hour away, we thought we would give it a try. And you are right, it is a lovely site, the best we have ever stayed on.

It is right on the beach but fenced and gated and with excellent security, the management and staff are very friendly. The restaurant on site is very good but Puerto Duquesa is so close that if you want

something a bit more lively, you have loads of bars, great fish and chips and nice little shops there. Thank you for recommendation.


Editor says: Glad you liked it. We tend to go there for a few reasons. The first is that it is always clean and beautifully kept and the loos are good. People wouldn’t believe the state of the bathroom facilities on some sites... yeuk!... but this is always first class. The

Jake Marshall Dear George Osborne,

My wife and I chose to live in Spain since 1996, mainly because we could no longer earn a living back home, as Market Traders, plus ongoing arthritis problems. If you decide to do temperature tests here, I am sure that you will find, like anywhere else in the world, temperatures have changed drastically.

Our winters here have become extremely cold. Snow is very common here, and it is very necessary to have heating for several months.

Plus, electricity in Spain is very expensive, (it consumes 25% of my monthly pension). Please note that we moved here when I turned 60 years of age, after paying National Insurance and Income Tax since I was 15 years of age, and feel totally entitled to the heating allowance. We would appreciate your kind consideration on this very important decision. Kind regards Mr & Mrs. Jake Marshall. PS: TO ALL 12,000 EXPATS IN SPAIN, WITH THE SAME PROBLEM, FIND THE TIME TO

Michael Sweeney I have been reading over the past few weeks that a restaurant / bar in Coin had been having some entertainment on. My wife and I live on the coast so it’s not as if we are starved of something to do but, we thought we’d have a ride out into the countryside over the weekend, have some dinner then stay to watch whatever they had on. We got to The Olive Tree in plenty of time and had a really well-cooked tasty meal then settled in to watch the band. They were a Spanish group (most unusual for what is to all intents and purposes an English restaurant) called “Lottalove” and, I have to say that we were a bit apprehensive thinking “amateur” before they appeared. We were very pleasantly surprised in

second is that it actually has some grass. Many of the sites are on shale and very scrubby. And the third reason is that you can walk just a few minutes to Marlows for fish and chips or a bit further to Duquesa Port for many restaurants cafés bars and shops. There’s another one in Chiclana (past Tarifa etc) called La Rosaleda that’s also very good – give it a try next time you want a few days away in your caravan.


Editor says: If they think it’s too hot here to give us the heating allowance, what about in the summers when it’s so hot we have to use aircon and fans that we wouldn’t be using in the UK for more than a day a year? Maybe we should get a cooling allowance instead. Last winter we used loads of wood in our log burner to keep warm It’s not always 100ºC here is it?!

Fuengirola fact. The Olive Tree seems to have a large, regular clientelle and the atmosphere was tremendous. I understand that they had “Songs from The Musicals / Les Miserables on the evening before and the place was packed then too. Recently they’ve had Robbie Williams, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond and Rod Stewart tributes that have all been well received. On Thursday evening we shall be back “up the hill” as the locals seem to call it as “Rod Stewart” is making another appearance and we’ve been told he had the whole place rocking! So, see you there and well done to the owners and their family for a great place with great entertainment, great food and a great atmosphere.

Comment By Ken Campbell

Hercules The Hero U

Here’s a nice little test you can try to see how dark your local sky is and try to spot one of the less prominent constellations. p to now I’ve mainly pointed out clearly visible constellations which contain relatively bright stars. But out of the 88 universally recognised constellations some of them are made up of fainter stars that need a fair bit of finding. And directly overhead at this time of the year is one of them, Hercules the Hero. ercules is one of the original 48 constellations first described by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy back in the 2nd century AD. But the tale of the warrior hero goes back a lot further to Roman times who in turn had adapted the Greek Myth into their own tale. Hercules was the son of Zeus and is famous for his strength, his heroic adventures and the twelve labours of Hercules – impossible tasks that included slaying many ferocious beasts such as a Lion, a seven headed serpent, a wild boar and a very wild Cretan Bull. is twelfth labour was to capture Cerberus, a three-headed dog that guarded the underworld – without using any weapons! No wonder the guy is considered a hero. And so, because of all these great deeds, Hercules was consigned to roam the heavens as a constellation of stars. never cease to be amazed at the imagination of the Greeks, Romans and Babylonians who first identified and named the original constellations as very few of them actually look anything like what they are suppose to represent and I’m afraid Hercules falls into that category. ercules is easier to find by using other more prominent constellations and stars to guide you to him. So begin by finding ‘The Plough’. I wrote about ‘The Plough’ last week – it’s the one that looks like a giant saucepan with four stars forming the rectangle of the ‘bowl’ of the saucepan and three stars forming the curved ‘handle’. Follow the curve of the handle until you come to the bright red star Arcturus in the constellation of Bo tes ‘The Herdsman’. Now look to the left of Arcturus and find the really bright blue/white star Vega in the constellation of Lyra. alf way between Arcturus and Vega, directly overhead is Hercules. The most distinct shape of Hercules can best be described as four stars of similar brightness forming a ‘keystone’ trapezium shape. If your local sky is dark enough the ‘keystone’ should be quite easy to pick out.




hese four stars and the surrounding area contain some nice little gems for amateur telescopes and it is worth having a closer look. Through a telescope you will see that each of the four stars in the ‘Keystone’ is not a single star but a binary system of two stars in orbit around each other, a brighter primary star with a much fainter companion star. One of the sets of pair stars has an orbital period of about 34 years and so over a period of time they can be seen changing position as they orbit each other. In 2025 they will be at their absolute maximum separation from each other before moving back together again. ut the most spectacular object in Hercules has to be M13 the Globular Cluster. M13 is a cluster of millions of stars about 25,000 light years away and 145 light years across. It is the brightest globular cluster in the Northern Hemisphere and under perfectly dark skies can even be seen with the naked eye. It is located along the line between two of the stars forming the ‘Keystone’. As there are only four lines in the ‘keystone’ it is easier for you to scan each one rather than me trying to describe where it is. Once you have found it even with binoculars it will appear as a rather large, diffused fuzzy blob. But with a telescope even of modest size many thousands of individual stars can be clearly seen. n the mid 1930’s there was an exploding star or Nova discovered in the constellation of Hercules visible for a few days. It was widely believed at the time that this was Krypton the home planet of Superman. n 1974 a radio message was transmitted from the giant Arecibo radio telescope toward M31 giving details of the human race. If there is any intelligent life there then in 50,000 years time we may receive a reply. I better set my alarm clock then!

Crutchlow is getting closer

Cal Crutchlow is getting ever closer to his maiden MotoGP World Championship win after finishing just over a second behind Marc Marquez in the German Grand Prix to notch up his fourth podium in five races. Starting from the front row of the grid, Crutchlow said after the race that he was baulked by Marquez in the run to the

The Tech 3 Yamaha rider would get the better of Alvaro Bautista, Aleix Espargaro, Stefan Bradl and Valentino Rossi ahead of him, but found himself 2.8secs adrift of Marquez with ten laps remaining.

regardless. “Marc rode fantastic, and Valentino also. I don't think Marc should discredit the result. Even though Dani and Jorge were not here, the pace showed – he was even faster than last year's race pace,the result could have been the same anyway”.

The MotoGP boys in joyfull mood on the podium

Crutchlow mounted a late charge, but Marquez controlled the pace enough to ensure the gap never dipped to lower than 1.5secs, keeping his rival at bay to the chequered flag. Despite missing out on the chance to challenge for victory, second position – ahead of factory Yamaha star Rossi – signals another marvellous performance by Crutchlow, not least because he suffered two large accidents during Friday practice.

“I tried my best. I came back to Marc, as close as I could and I never gave up,” he said. “I actually got a very good start. Marc got a bad start and came across a little into me. So I rolled off the throttle and then – same again! – I was sixth or something and had to make some passes. But I'm pleased with this result. The guys in the Monster Tech 3 team have done a fantastic job and we're finally able to consistently challenge towards the front in MotoGP.”

Reflecting on Marquez's performance, Crutchlow insisted the absence of title rivals Dani Pedrosa and

Froome conquers Ventoux Chris Froome put in an emphatic climbing display to take victory on Mont Ventoux and extend his lead at the Tour de France. The Team Sky Brit benefited from the huge work rate of his teammates on the famous climb before attacking hard with 7.2 kilometres to go.

The 28-year-old bridged across to the lone attack of Nairo Quintana (Movistar) before forging onwards to become the first British winner on Ventoux, winning the stage by 29 seconds and extending out his race lead to four minutes and 14 seconds, reclaiming the polka dot jersey in the process.

Team Sky pushed the pace from the foot of the climb as the whole team arrived on the front in a superb display – Geraint Thomas, Ian Stannard, David López and

Peter Kennaugh then continued his superb Tour debut by pushing onwards, setting a strong tempo to peg the attack of Quintana before Richie Porte took over. The Tasmanian’s attack split an already depleted peloton into pieces, with only Froome and Alberto Contador

(Team Saxo-Tinkoff) able to hold his wheel. With Porte’s effort over, Froome had a quick word with his teammate before unleashing a powerful attack to distance all his rivals and claim another stunning victory. Contador faded in the closing stages to finish sixth, 1:40 back. Report and photo Courtesy of

Wayne’s Weekly Poker Tips 2013 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event Final Table Over a week ago, the Main Event began with 6,352 players and is now down to the final 27. Day 6 saw 68 players return to action, but after five two-hour levels of play, less than half of them remain in contention for a coveted spot in this year’s November Nine Final Table.

The man best positioned to make it is Germany’s Anton Morgenstern (pictured), who is the current chip leader with 21,955,000 after getting a nice boost to his stack in the final hand of the night, so he is looking forward to November’s final table – which was first introduced in 2008, before this the event was played until it's conclusion.

Due to the WSOP the column has been dedicated to events in Vegas, so this week let’s have a look at playing small pocket pairs which I class as 2/2 to 9/9, any pair above this we need to be looking at raising or 3 betting pre flop. We have an expression in poker, Set Mining. This means we are calling with a pocket pair as cheap as possible hoping to hit a set (3 of a kind) on the flop. You may hear about trips but this is when you have 1 in your hand and 2 on the board. If you hit your set on a dry board you can win a good size pot against over pairs and a big A with an A on the board.

When should you set mine? With a small pair in early position is a good play,

just flat call and should someone raise you we still have value to see the flop. The main problem with raising in early position with say 66 should you get 3 bet we have to consider a fold when we would like to see the flop. Of course on the Button (dealer position) we need to raise if the pot is uncontested and should be calling any standard raise. If you do call a raise with a weak pair and the flop comes down with cards that are under 10 we should consider calling any continuation bet made by the raiser. If the board is really dry think about a 3 bet but always give yourself room to fold as a call or reraise of any 3 bet in this situation means we are likely well behind. Set mining can win you some big pots when you hit. If you miss, think carefully about trying to steal the pot as this can lose you a big pot as it is hard to knock your average player off AA / KK and QQ.

F1 Pat Symonds joins Williams

Williams have signed engineer Pat Symonds as their chief technical officer as part of a reshuffle aimed at reviving their fortunes. Symonds, 60, won world titles with both Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso. But he was also found guilty for his part in fixing the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix and banned from F1 for five years. The winners of the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix have not scored a point this year and have split with technical director Mike Coughlan with immediate effect.

e Ashes: How do they follow that?

James Anderson was England's final-day hero as the hosts held their nerve to complete an astonishing 14-run victory over Australia in an unforgettable climax to the opening Ashes Test.

The tension was unbearable, as Australia's final pair of Brad Haddin and James Pattinson took the tourists to the brink of victory with a partnership of 65. Only following a painstaking review after Haddin was caught behind off Anderson for 71 via the thinnest of inside edges could England celebrate one of the closest wins in Ashes history. The victory, which for sheer drama almost matched their incredible two-run triumph in the 2005 Edgbaston Ashes Test, puts England 1-0 up in the five-match series going into the second Test at Lord's, which begins on Thursday.

magnificent 10-wicket match haul, his first in Ashes cricket.

Anderson leads the charge as England celebrate victory

The emergence of Anderson, a former plodding swing bowler, who averaged a lowly 112 a wicket in the 2006/07 Ashes series, has been simply remarkable. And it has been former Victorian paceman David Saker, the no-nonsense England bowling coach, who has been the secret behind Anderson's stunning success. After Aussie Saker was appointed in 2010, he sat Anderson in a room and told him some savage home truths. Saker told

Anderson in no uncertain terms that the Australian batsmen thought he was soft, they didn't rate him and they thought he would turn up his heels in the heat of Ashes battle. Saker asked a stunned Anderson what he was going to do about it, to which Anderson replied with words to the effect of: ''I'll prove them wrong.''

Anderson has rarely looked back since and England would not have won the Trent Bridge Test without Anderson's

Australia started the final day needing a further 137 runs to win with four wickets in hand and when Anderson removed Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc and Peter Siddle – all caught at slip by Alastair Cook England looked odds on favourites for the win. But that didn’t take into account the batting abilities of Haddin and Pattinson, a tail-ender with a highly respectable Test average of 28.77 from 14 innings going into the match. Anderson was rested after bowling thirteen consecutive overs, an outof-sorts Steven Finn taking over and the Aussies took their chances, with Haddin knocking three successive fours. Then when Pattinson calmly lofted one over mid-off for six off the

bowling of Swann the target was just 31 runs.

The period just before a delayed lunch interval was manic, with Haddin firstly being dropped by Finn, then narrowly avoiding being run out by Bairstow before finally almost playing Swann on to his own stumps. Lunch was eventually taken with Australia just 20 short of victory. That break for lunch gave Anderson time to recover from cramp, and the England seamer returned to strike the decisive blow in his second over as Haddin drove away from his body and Prior claimed a catch behind. When umpire Aleem Dar declined to raise his finger, Cook sent for a review. As replays on the stadium screens revealed a faint hot spot mark on Haddin's bat, the festivities could begin. Phew!! and breathe.

Gay and Powell fail drugs tests

Sunday 14th July will go down as a bad day in the world of athletics, as two of the world’s fastest men failed drugs tests. Five of the 10 quickest men in history have now tested positive. Six, actually, but the American Tim Montgomery's marks have been scratched from the records. Among the top four, only world record holder Usain Bolt remains unblemished. Powell has insisted he had never "knowingly" doped, while Gay, who is waiting for his B sample, said "I basically put my trust in someone and was let down."


Manchester Utd make £25m bid for Fabregas Manchester United have made a £25m bid for Barcelona's former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas. The offer is currently under consideration but is understood to be below the Spanish club's valuation of the player. While Fabregas is not pushing for a move, it is believed he is open to a return to England.
