Kangaroo Island, Australia: The wonders of Oz - By Charles Starmer-Smith -

With duties on long-haul flights due to rise, now is the time to book a trip to Australia's magical islands. Charles Starmer-Smith suggests Kangaroo Island.

Perched on the cliff above Hanson Bay, I gazed out at the Southern Ocean. With no land mass between here and Antarctica to dampen the swell, the waves were pounding the sugar-white sands with alarming ferocity. It was no surprise to hear that 86 ships had come a cropper on these reefs. Prints marked the sand – left not by stranded sailors but by the local wildlife, which, with just one human being per square mile, still roams free. Kangaroo Island (KI), off the coast of South Australia, is wild, elemental and unforgiving. But I can think of few places in which l would rather be shipwrecked.

* Australia's best islands

Britons continue to be drawn to Australia's great outdoors: gap-year students treading the well-worn tourist trail, sports tourists following England's rugby or cricket exploits (the Ashes start in six months and already packages are being snapped up), emigrants in search of sunshine and the surf-and-turf lifestyle. That controversial marketing slogan, "Where the bloody hell are you?", could be replaced with "Why the bloody hell are there so many of you here?"

But for how long? Britain's new coalition Government, trying to plug a financial black hole, sees travel as part of the answer. Air Passenger Duty has risen by up to 325 per cent since 2006; the question is not whether it is going to rise again in next week's emergency Budget, but by how much. If the Liberal Democrats' manifesto plans are adopted, revenue from this tax (now being described as a "per plane tax") could rise from £1.9 bn to £5.3 bn, and long-haul holidays, for all but the wealthiest, could be in real danger of becoming once-in-a-lifetime trips. If that happens, you will want to make them count.

"Hold on, folks – we've hit rush minute here," said Jen, who had greeted my wife and me at the tiny airport in Kingscote with a smile as broad as her Aussie twang. We had reached a three-car tailback at one of the island's few intersections as we bounced along the Southern Ocean road. We had passed a line of postboxes. Not a sight that usually warrants a second look, but here the postboxes were a washing machine, an oil drum, a spin dryer, a jerrycan and a lavatory seat.

It was this kind of quirky individuality that encouraged Jen to leave her home in the Northern Territory – a place she felt had become unrecognisable from a decade ago, as her beloved "outback" around Kakadu National Park had became a commercial enterprise, crisscrossed with tarmac roads and flooded with tourists.

Thankfully, the lack of fresh water and the poor soil on KI has kept the population low and made it easier for conservationists to protect vast swathes of the island. But with the demise of the wool industry, tourism has become a vital industry here, too. The island has always had plenty of good-value, basic hotels and rental homes, but the completion of the luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge last year was the missing piece in the jigsaw. The architects of this wilderness-and-wellness retreat have taken care to ensure it blends into its surroundings. From the moment you walk into the limestone-clad, open-plan lobby you are confronted by a wraparound screen of floor-to-ceiling glass to show off the setting, and the views from all 21 suites (all named after shipwrecks) are no less impressive.

KI is billed as Australia's answer to the Galapagos Islands: koalas, seals, sea lions, wallabies and, of course, kangaroos, are abundant, while echidna, platypus, southern right whales and penguins can be spotted by those who are more patient. Evening "Kangas and Kanapes" drinks on the 600-acre estate of nearby Edward's Cottage, which teems with kangaroos, give a taste of what the place can offer, but to have any hope of scratching beneath the surface of an island the size of Sussex, you need an experienced guide.

Early on our second morning we met Tim – a big, brash, sports-mad Australian (is there any other sort?) whose comments on flora and fauna were offset by a refreshingly un-PC stream of one-liners. On a recent shark attack: "Look, the guy was surfing among a seal colony in a dark grey wetsuit – it doesn't take a genius to work out that that is not a great idea." On the recent forest fires: "We ran out of marshmallows in a week."

After a morning in Koala Alley, craning our necks for more than the odd glimpse of a furry rear, I began to question Tim's assertion that these laid-back marsupials, introduced in 1923, were once in danger of overrunning the island. Such was their rate of reproduction (perhaps that is why they need 19 hours' sleep) and voracious appetite for vegetation that the government considered a cull, until an international outcry left neutering as the only option.

As if on cue, there was a rustle in the bushes and a young male rummaged through the undergrowth towards us, almost close enough to touch. As we all fawned and cooed unashamedly, I could not help wondering whether his doleful expression owed more to a recent snip than to a eucalyptus-induced stupor.

Behind all Tim's "tree-hugger" badinage was a genuine concern about the regeneration of the island's rare plants, more than 40 species of which are unique to KI. We climbed out of the 4x4 in the heart of Flinders Chase National Park (named after Matthew Flinders, the Englishman who first charted the island in 1802) to find sweeping views over the vast forests of the interior, where thick brushstrokes of grey swept across the green canvas. This scorched earth was the result of fires – some accidental, some deliberate – that the authorities are desperate to avoid but that Tim believes are vital for the survival of rare species.

"While the American attitude would be to carefully cut a sample, test-tube it and take it to the Smithsonian Institution," he said, "here we start a fire." It seems perverse, but he maintains that from the embers of charred earth species rise that would otherwise be choked by more vigorous plants. He points to the tunnels of foliage that form over the roads: pleasing to the eye, he says, but they leave the forest floor almost devoid of life.

There were few such concerns for the health of the New Zealand fur seals. Basking in the sunshine on the rocks at Admirals Arch, they timed to perfection their slither into the swirling rock pools in the face of the oncoming tide. They seemed unconcerned that nearby sharks were deliberating whether to have seal on the rocks or in the soup.

Before any feeding frenzy could begin, Tim whisked us to Remarkable Rocks on Kirkpatrick Point, where a series of formations, sculpted by the Southern Ocean, offered a display of which Henry Moore would have been proud, their rust-coloured surfaces reddening as the setting sun cast contorted shadows all around us.

But it was our trip to Seal Bay early the next morning that will live longest in the memory. Accompanied by a naturalist, we crept down to the beach, deserted but for a 600-strong colony of sea lions – the last remnants of a population hunted almost to extinction. Crouching on the sands, we fought the urge to move forward as pups stomach-surfed their way down the grassy dunes behind us or rode the waves with excited bleats. The adults, by contrast, were positively catatonic, their hulking bodies sprawled across the sand after days of playing hunter-gatherer. Fathers wearily swatted away playful pups, rising only to stretch their necks skyward before flopping down again; mothers occasionally glanced towards our group whenever an inquisitive youngster approached us.

"It's the females who have it toughest," our guide said, to a series of knowing nods from the women present. "After a 17-month gestation period, they have one or two weeks off, and then it's back to work." Cue a round of approving smiles from the men. This was a schedule to rival that of the former French justice minister, Rachida Dati, who last year returned to work just five days after giving birth.

We sat and stared long after our camera batteries and our allotted time had run out, reluctant to move on from a scene that we might never witness again – particularly if Dave agrees with Nick and makes the long-haul flier pay even more.

60 human heads discovered at Arkansas airport - By Nick Allen in Los Angeles -

Arkansas airport workers discovered a shipment of 40 to 60 human heads at a cargo facility last week, after noticing that the package was "not labelled properly".

By Nick Allen in Los Angeles
Published: 12:25AM BST 18 Jun 2010

Employees at Southwest Airlines discovered the clumsily duct-taped containers of heads last week in Little Rock. After they reported their grim discovery to police, the heads were turned over to the local coroner.

Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper said: "They were basically in plastic containers with lids that are not air sealed.

"They were duct taped with minimal information to disclose what was inside."

Further investigation revealed that the heads were being shipped to Medtronic Inc in Fort Worth, Texas, where they would be used by neurosurgeons to study ear, nose and throat procedures.

A spokesman for the medical company said they had ordered four heads and 40 head portions with an ear attached.

He said: "In this particular instance they were going to be used for educational training, which is routinely and commonly done."

He said it was not uncommon for heads used for research to be shipped commercially, adding: "It's a common practice. This is a very uncommon result."

Medtronic, the world's largest independent medical device company, had used an Arkansas-based company to supply and ship the heads.

ECB must buy 'hundred of billions' of bonds to tame Europe's debt crisis - By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard -

Fitch Ratings has warned that it may take massive asset purchases by the European Central Bank to prevent Europe's sovereign debt crisis escalating out of control.

By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
Published: 8:19PM BST 17 Jun 2010

Brian Coulton, the agency's head of sovereign ratings, said German members of the ECB appeared to be blocking the sort of muscular intervention in southern European bond markets needed to restore the shattered confidence of investors.

"There has been an unwillingness to follow through, and markets are going to want to see the ECB's money. It will require hundreds of billions in my opinion," he told a global banking conference.

The ECB agreed to start buying Greek, Portuguese, and Irish bonds in April to help buttress the EU's `shock and awe' package, known as the European Financial Stability Facility. Total purchases so far have been €47bn (£39bn).

It has focused its firepower on Greece, mopping up some €25bn of government bonds. This has prevented a collapse of the Greek debt market but at the high political price of letting banks and funds dump their holdings onto the EU taxpayer.

ECB council member Jose Manuel Gonzalez-Paramo said it was "not entirely correct" to assume that the ECB was the sole buyer of the debt. "We will continue buying bonds until the situation has stabilized," he said.

The Bundesbank is reportedly irked that French banks have led the rush to the exits while German banks have stuck by a gentleman's agreement to keep their Greek assets. The ECB's council insists that it has "sterilized" all purchases, offering no net stimulus. In effect, the ECB has done little to offset severe fiscal tightening by some eurozone states, and as the M3 money supply contracts.

"The ECB commitment seems half-hearted," said Andrew Balls, head of PIMCO's team in Europe. "The European sovereign problem has started to contaminate the European banking sector and the global economy."

Experts attending a seminar by the Central Banking Journal said the ECB had been behind the curve for months. "They were always one day and one euro too late," said Paul Mortimer-Lee, market chief at BNP Paribas.

A smooth auction of €3.5bn of Spanish bonds offered some respite yesterday after a week of stress on the EMU periphery, but Spain had to pay punitive rates. The average yield on 10-year bonds was 4.86pc, a near record spread of 220 basis points over German Bunds.

Silvio Peruzzo from RBS said the auction does little to help Spanish banks and firms that have been frozen out the debt markets and face a funding crunch.

"The ECB needs to act before contagion becomes endemic. Spain's banking system in at the heart of an ice-storm and there is a risk of 'sudden stop' if they can't roll over debt. We expect intervention, probably in covered bonds," he said.

Spain's premier Jose Luis Zapatero said the banks remain well capitalized, and has led the way in pushing for release of stress tests on each lender. "There is nothing better than transparency to show solvency, and leave behind baseless rumours," he said.

Santander has emerged from the probe as the strongest of the EU's large banks, according to leaks in the Spanish press. Madrid said weaker lenders would need just a third of the country's €99bn bank-rescue fund.

Marco Annunziata from UniCredit said the release of the stress tests is a gamble. "Spain has raised the stakes, and market expectations: now it will need to show it is up to the challenge. Spain is the eurozone's lynchpin. If it fails, the eurozone's wheels will come off," he said.

European president Herman van Rompuy said the EU-wide results would be published in July, helping to clear the air and restore trust to the inter-bank lending market. The Bundesbank insists that "back-stop" facilities should be in place, a tacit admission that some lenders are in dire shape.

Fitch said European banks must refinance nearly €2 trillion of long-term debt by the end of 2012 in an unfriendly market. "There's an awful lot of debt coming due in 2011 and 2012, and that is becoming a concern," said Bridget Gandy, the agency's banking expert.

Smaller banks have put off refinancing in the hope that spreads would fall and are now caught in a vice. Mrs Gandy said the situation could turn serious if global growth falters, tipping Europe into a double-dip recession.

David Owen from Jefferies Fixed Income said the eurozone may start contracting again in the second half of the year. He said the "core problem" haunting the European debt markets is that investors have little faith in the EU strategy of forcing states to carry out draconian cuts in the middle of a recession.

Mr Owen said these countries need sustained growth to claw their way out of debt-deflation traps, and that will require fully-fledged quantitiatve easing by the ECB, and drastic currency depreciation. "If the euro falls to parity or down to 80 cents against the dollar, we would start to see a solution," he said.

L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt's butler 'taped conversations to protect her' - By Henry Samuel in Paris -

L'Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt's loyal butler has come forward to claim she is being conned by advisers and a society photographer.

By Henry Samuel in Paris
Published: 7:00AM BST 18 Jun 2010

He revealed he had secretly recorded conversations which he claimed would show they had taken advantage of her frail state to benefit financially.

Pascal Bonnefoy, a faithful employee of Mrs Bettencourt's for 20 years, said he had acted because he could "no longer bear" to see his 87-year-old employer, the world's 17th richest person, "being abused by people without scruples".

He placed a recording device in the ageing heiress' first floor office, where she received various confidants, lawyers and the man supposed to look after her £14bn fortune.

Appalled at what he heard, Mr Bonnefoy transferred 41 hours of recordings over the past year onto 28 CD-ROMs, resigned and handed them to Mrs Bettencourt's estranged daughter, Francoise Bettencourt-Meyers, who gave them to the police.

"I felt threatened, I wanted to protect myself," he told Le Point magazine. "When I heard them I could see where things were heading. I did my duty to the family."

The tapes appear to support Mrs Bettencourt-Meyers' claims that her mother is psychologically frail and to suggest her entourage are abusing her allegedly confused state to obtain millions in gifts.

The chief beneficiary of Mrs Bettencourt's largesse has been François-Marie Banier, a society photographer whom she has handed almost £800m in artworks, money and other presents.

A French court is to rule next month on claims by Miss Bettencourt-Meyers that Mr Banier is guilty of "abuse of weakness".

He denies the accusations, as does Mrs Bettencourt, who has said she can give money to whom she pleases and is perfectly fit to run her life and the cosmetics group in which she has a controlling stake.

That does not appear to be the case in extracts of the secret tapes.

In one recording, in March, Mrs Bettencourt asks Jean-Michel Normand, her solicitor, how much she has left Mr Banier in her will.

"Everything," replies the solicitor in a low voice.

"Ah, no," says Mrs Bettencourt.

"Yes, it's you who told me," he replies.

In May, Patrice de Maistre, Mrs Bettencourt's financial adviser, is heard telling her that she has given Mr Banier, via a foundation, an island in the Seychelles.

"Oh," she says. "I wanted to buy him an island?"

Weeks later, on April 7, she rails against Mr Banier, saying: "He's someone I like very much, he's very intelligent, but... he's killing me.

"He's becoming too demanding: give me this, give me that." Mr Banier is not the only one seeking gifts. Mr de Maistre is heard trying to persuade her to get him cash from Switzerland so he can buy the "yacht of my dreams".

But, he adds, he cannot be seen to receive the money, as "I've signed something saying I'm your protector so I can't do that".

The tapes will also deeply embarrass President Nicolas Sarkozy, who, it is heard, follows the case "closely".

In one tape, Mr de Maistre tells Mrs Bettencourt he met a presidential aide.

When she asks whether "we will win" next month's court case, in which she backs Mr Banier against her daughter, he says the presidential adviser told him that: "In the first trial, we can do nothing more, but in terms of an appeal if you lose, we know the prosecutor very, very well."

Mrs Bettencourt's lawyer accused the butler of "spying" on the heiress on behalf of her daughter. Police on Wednesday opened an inquiry into alleged infringement of Mrs Bettencourt's right to privacy, and the butler was taken in for questioning on Wednesday.

World Cup 2010: British university in firing line over Jabulani ball goal drought - By Matthew Moore and Martin Evans -

The British university behind the erratic new World Cup ball is attracting international scorn after one of the dullest and lowest scoring starts to the tournament in living memory.

By Matthew Moore and Martin Evans
Published: 7:30AM BST 18 Jun 2010

When scientists from Loughborough University unveiled the Jabulani earlier this year, they boasted that its hi-tech design would ensure "exceptionally stable flight" and make the ball "more accurate than ever before".

But after seven days of mediocre football and barely a handful of long-range goals, questions are being asked about whether Loughborough's cutting edge methods – including a wind tunnel and a "kicking" robot – have backfired.

Fabio Capello, the England manager, increased the pressure on the university earlier this week by describing the Adidas-manufactured Jabulani as "the worst ball that I have seen in my life".

Initial criticisms of the almost perfectly spherical ball's unpredictable swerve came from goalkeepers who struggled to follow the flight. But now attacking players are claiming that the smooth surface makes it more difficult to curve around defensive walls and inside the posts.

Robinho, the Brazil striker, complained that "the guy who designed this ball never played football", while Danish dead ball specialist Dan Agger joked that it made world class players look like "drunken sailors".

Matthew Le Tissier, the former England international famed for his accurate set pieces, blamed the ball's developers for the "tame" start to the World Cup.

He told The Daily Telegraph: "I'm surprised that they have spent so much time and money developing this ball but don't appear to have tested it thoroughly. The changes have been too drastic."

"There has been a reluctance to shoot from open play from any kind of distance; the players don't seem to have the confidence to keep the ball under the bar. It's a shame because people want to see exciting goals."

George Cohen MBE, a member of England's 1966 World Cup winning side, said that annual improvements to the old leather lace-up balls were beginning to damage to sport.

He said: "Designers have constantly tried to create more goals by using lighter and lighter balls. It was thought they would fly further and everyone loves to see a 30-yard screamer bend into the top corner. But things have gone too far."

Each Jabulani is made of eight panels which have been specially moulded to create a more spherical ball. The panels are thermally bonded rather than stitched together to ensure an even smoother finish.

Although the Jabulani is no lighter than other Adidas balls designed by Loughborough – including those for the 2008 European Championship and 2006 World Cup – it has been designed to travel five per cent faster.

Dr Andy Harland from Loughborough University’s Sports Technology Institute, which spent four years researching the ball for Adidas, promised that the ball was the most stable and precise ever manufactured because of pioneering "aero grooves" built into its surface.

But that has not been borne out by the first round of group matches which saw just 25 goals. This is down from 39 in Germany 2006 and 46 in Japan and South Korea in 2002.

Of the few long distance goals in South Africa, Diego Forlan's effort for Uruguay against the hosts took a significant deflection, while Clint Dempsey's strike for the USA against England and Maico's opener for Brazil against North Korea were both blamed on the Jabulani's erratic swerve.

Dr Harland, who is currently in South Africa as a guest of Adidas, insists that strikers' inability to keep the ball down when shooting from range is down to the thin air inside high altitude grounds. But matches at Cape Town and Durban, both of which are on the coast, have also been affected.

Professor Steve Haake of the Sports Engineering Research Group at Sheffield Hallam agreed that altitude was likely to have a greater influence that on the ball's trajectory than any technological changes.

He said: "In thinner air the ball will slow down less and swerve less, meaning it is more likely to fly over the bar."

But he added that tests on the Jabulani showed that it could "do some strange things" as it passes through particular speeds as it slows down, which could go some way to explaining the wild shooting.

Adidas hopes to sell more than 15 million of the Jabulani balls at up to £80 each. The name means "rejoice" in Zulu.

Child tax credits to be cut for 2m families - By Rosa Prince, Political Correspondent -

More than two million middle-class families will lose their entitlement to child tax credits worth hundreds of pounds a year after Nick Clegg said they did not "need" the benefit.

By Rosa Prince, Political Correspondent
Published: 10:11PM BST 17 Jun 2010

The Deputy Prime Minister signalled that the move would form part of next week's emergency Budget, insisting it was not "unreasonable" to expect the middle classes to make sacrifices.

Currently, parents can claim child tax credit if they earn up to £58,000, or £66,000 if the child is under the age of one.

The less they earn, the more they can claim, with payments potentially worth up to £2,850 a year for just one child.

However The Daily Telegraph understands that the Government is considering restricting the benefit to parents with a combined income of no more than £30,000, or possibly as low as £25,000.

Lowering the income limit to £30,000 would mean that 2.1 million families currently entitled to claim credits would no longer be able to do so.

The benefit was one of Gordon Brown's principal policies as Chancellor, and 90 per cent of families currently have some entitlement at a cost of £20.7 billion a year. With the Coalition under pressure to cut billions of pounds from public spending to reduce the £155 billion budget deficit, Mr Clegg made clear that middle earners should not expect this to continue.

The Government has already announced that it will axe child trust funds of more than £500 per child, to which all families had been entitled.

"Surely, everyone agrees that having tax credits extended – which is basically a means-tested benefit – to nine out of 10 of every family in this country which has got children means you are giving a lot of money – taxpayers' money, other people's money – to people who don't really need it," Mr Clegg told GMTV yesterday.

"We want to taper them away from those families who have much more money than others. I do not think that is an unreasonable way to go."

Typically, a family with three children earning £25,000 is currently eligible for £92 a week under the scheme.

A family with three children and an income of £50,000 can receive £10 a week.

Coalition ministers believe that, under Labour, benefits ceased to be a safety net for the worst off, and began to include growing numbers of the middle class.

In a speech at the children's charity Barnardo's yesterday, Mr Clegg said the current child tax credit scheme was "madness".

"Crucially, we need to reverse the trend of making families ever more dependent on the state," he said.

"The previous government believed social change must always be driven from the centre. But that's government at its worst – insecure government, government that creates needy families."

He continued: "That's why this government is going to raise the income tax personal allowance so that families can keep more of the money they earn.”

The Conservatives fought last month’s election on a pledge to restrict tax credits to households earning under £50,000, while the Lib Dems wanted them limited to those on less than £25,000.

Under the Lib Dem plan, families would be partly compensated by a rise in the rate at which income tax begins to be paid, to £10,000.

It is understood that next week’s Budget will contain plans both to raise the income tax threshold and to restrict child tax credits.

Nearly seven million families are entitled to child tax credits at present, although one in five does not claim them.

The move comes as millions of workers earning more than £20,000 brace themselves for an increase in their national insurance payments of 1p in the pound.

Children’s groups and the Opposition warned that middle-class families could not afford to lose child tax credits on top of other cuts.

Yvette Cooper, the shadow work and pensions secretary, said: “Cutting child tax credit for families with a joint income of £30,000 or £40,000 a year will hit a lot of parents who already find themselves overstretched.

“That help makes a particular difference to working mothers and in many cases is what helps them afford to work part-time.”

Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet, added: “On an income of £30,000, it can be tough enough to make ends meet, and tax credits are invaluable. They’re not just attacking the affluent.”

England v Algeria: David James to start as Fabio Capello drops Robert Green - By Jason Burt in Cape Town -

David James will start in goal for England against Algeria tonight after a dramatic change of heart prompted Fabio Capello to drop Robert Green, Telegraph Sport understands.

By Jason Burt in Cape Town
Published: 9:32AM BST 18 Jun 2010

The 39-year-old will replace Green after England coach Capello decided he was unconvinced the West Ham goalkeeper had recovered from the howler he made against the United States last week.

Capello had intended to keep faith with Green if he was convinced that the 30-year-old was not mentally scarred by the mistake. However, after discussions, he has decided to restore James who had appeared to have slipped to third-choice behind Joe Hart after a series of unconvincing training sessions.
There had also been tensions between James and the England management even though the majority of the squad thought he should play.

However Green suffered a poor training session on the eve of England’s match tonight against Algeria and this appears to have proven a decisive factor in whether he retained his place.

Capello had indicated that he would not think twice about dropping Green if it was for the best of the team and he has now demonstrated his ruthless streak. It would also appear to cast doubts on Green’s ability to recover his international career.

In the final training session at the Greenpoint Stadium, Green made three bad fumbles. Capello then spoke to him this morning to inform him that he would be left out.

It is bound to be a crushing blow for Green who had felt he had done enough to convince Capello to retain him.

James’s relationship with the management has been tetchy for the past few weeks, with suggestions that he is not fully fit having been scotched by the Portsmouth goalkeeper.

Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni meet Prince of Wales as they visit Britain -

French President Nicolas Sarkozy made a symbolic visit to London today to mark the 70th anniversary of General Charles de Gaulle's radio broadcast urging his nation to resist the Nazi occupation of France.

Published: 10:14AM BST 18 Jun 2010

The Prince of Wales greeted Mr Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni, as they arrived at Clarence House during a day of official engagements to commemorate the historic milestone.

On June 18, 1940, General de Gaulle appealed to his countrymen over the BBC airwaves.

His rallying cry came the day after Marshal Philippe Petain's government announced its surrender to the Germans and is widely seen as the founding act of the Second World War French Resistance.

Few Frenchmen actually heard General de Gaulle declare that ''the flame of French resistance must not and will not be extinguished''.

But further broadcasts in the following days led to him becoming so well-known that he was subsequently court martialled in his absence and sentenced to death for treason.

The British Government had originally not wanted to allow him to issue his rallying cry, but the Cabinet was persuaded by Prime Minister Winston Churchill to let him go ahead.

Mr Sarkozy is the first French president to mark the anniversary in London. He and his wife began the day with a visit to the B2 studio at BBC Broadcasting House from where General de Gaulle's original appeal was made.

They were met by BBC chairman Sir Michael Lyons, then visited an exhibition on the BBC during the Second World War, before unveiling a plaque in memory of the event.

Charles kissed Ms Bruni's hand as he greeted France's first couple.

The group posed for waiting photographers.

Ms Bruni, who was wearing a grey shift dress and black kitten heels, said "Bonjour" to waiting officials.

Oil spill: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev fears BP's 'annihilation' -

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has expressed concerns that the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill could lead to the "annihilation" of BP.

Published: 10:20AM BST 18 Jun 2010
Mr Medvedev stopped short of saying the disaster would prompt a review of Russia's partnership with BP, but he said: "This is a wake-up call."

"Certainly, we are not indifferent to their future... Hopefully, they can absorb the losses," he told the Wall Street Journal.
BP shares, which have fallen around 46pc since the spill began, rose 4.5pc in early tradiing on Friday.

BP is present in Russia through TNK-BP, the third largest oil producer in the country, accounting for roughly a quarter of BP's global production. It owns half of TNK-BP and the other half is owned by Alfa Access-Renova, a consortium of Russian businessmen.

When asked how the oil spill would affect Russia's view of BP as a partner, he said: "What I know is that BP will have to pay a lot of money this year.

"Whether the company can digest those expenditures, whether they will lead to the annihilation of the company or its breakup into pieces is a matter of expediency."

Mr Medvedev's comment come as estimates of the damage caused by the US's biggest environmental accident spiral

BP has agreed to set aside $20bn (£13.5bn) in a special compensation fund for the disaster, which left 11 dead and opened a leak that is spilling up to 60,000 barrels of oil into the sea each day.

Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy yesterday predicted the damage to Gulf of Mexico states could reach $100.

Standard and Poor's yesterday cut the company's credit rating, and warned that further downgrades may follow.

BP's cost to date are $1.8bn, including the cost of the spill response, containment, relief well drilling, grants to the Gulf states, claims paid, and federal costs. Repeated attempts to cap the leak have failed.

David Wilton, a Partner at restructuring firm BTG Mesirow, predicted BP's liabilities could reach £63bn, but played down fears that the company could collapse, observing that the payments will be spread over a long period of time.

US politicians have shown no signs of letting up an onslaught against the company, following the lead set by Barack Obama who has compared the disaster to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In Congress, Mr Hayward faced a barrage of criticism for ignoring warning signs before the fatal rig explosion.

Henry Waxman, a California Democrat known as one of the toughest investigators in Congress, told Mr Hayward: “There is not a single email or document that shows that you paid even the slightest attention to the dangers at this well.

“There is a complete contradiction between BP’s words and deeds. You were brought in to make safety the top priority of BP, but under your leadership, BP has taken the most extreme risks.”

In a pointedly nationalist remark, Bart Stupak, from Michigan, said that while Mr Hayward could take “a golden parachute back to England, we in America are left to recover for years from the disaster”.

Like others, he taunted the 53-year-old geologist with his previous gaffes and comments, particularly his remark that he “wanted his life back” because dealing with the accident was all-consuming.

“Eleven families who lost people may not get their lives back, but I am sure will get your life back,” snapped Mr Stupak, chairman of the energy subcommittee on oversight and investigations in the House of Representatives that held the hearing.

Betty Sutton, a Democrat from Ohio, said: “Like many Americans, I feel physically sick when I see all this oil gushing into the gulf.”

Diane Wilson, a shrimper from Texas mounting a lone protest, began heckling when Mr Hayward began speaking, calling him a criminal. Her hands smeared with oil, it took Capitol Hill police several minutes to wrestle her to the ground and escort her from the committee room.

Republican congressman Joe Barton, who offered a lone voice of support for BP, apologising for the company's treatment, later retracted his words under pressure from his party.

Franjas para Tapetes - Sandra Correia - especialista em tapetes - Artesanato - Programa Mulheres

- Martelo
- Pregos
- Tesoura
- Linha
- Agulha
- Barbante
- Madeira
- Prendedores
- Alicate

Cortar a franja antiga do tapete.
Prender o tapete na madeira com os pregos pelo lado avesso.
Prender o fio de sustentação de uma ponta a outra.
Fazer a costura iraniana prendendo o fio de sustentação.
Passar o barbante entre o cordão de sustentação.
Dar os nós iranianos.
Aparar a franja

Fazer uma lavagem com uma boa hidratação da lã com óleo vegetal pelo menos uma vez ao ano, e ai sim, serão aplicadas as dicas a seguir:

- Varrer o tapete com vassoura de cerdas macias sempre a favor da pelagem.

- Uma vez ao mês, aspirar o tapete, sempre pelo avesso e se possível colocá-lo ao sol, pelo lado avesso também para tirar a umidade e o odor, que ficam desagradáveis, principalmente no inverno ou em tempos chuvosos.

- Aqueles tapetes pesados demais e que ficam sob mesas também pesadas, vire as bordas, varra, e deixe tomar um pouco de ar.

- Fazer uma vez a cada seis meses um o rodízio do tapete, isto evitará que o mesmo se desgaste apenas de um lado.

- Nunca use produto á base de gasolina ou querosene, ou qualquer tipo de sabão comum.

- Não coloque vasos de plantas sobre os tapetes, eles desgastam o mesmo e trazem umidade para a peça.

- Para tirar pingos de vela do seu tapete, retire o excesso com uma espátula.
Depois pegue um pedaço de tecido de algodão e passe o ferro em cima da mancha, aos poucos o algodão vai absorver a parafina.

- Para evitar que traças e insetos se estalem em seu tapete persa, coloque sempre debaixo da peça algumas bolinhas de pimenta seca.

- Na faxina é permitido passar um pano umedecido em água e bicarbonato de sódio, e (1 colher (sopa) de bicarbonato para 1 ou 2 litros de água), e 2 colheres (sopa) de amaciante branco. Isso fará com que o seu tapete tenha mais brilho e evite o acumulo de bactérias, Tomando o cuidado apenas para não deixá-los úmidos. Caso isso venha a ocorrer, coloque-o ao sol pelo avesso antes de recolocá-lo no local de uso.

- Espalhe o bicarbonato de sódio em pó, deixando assim por meia hora, após esse tempo, Varrer muito bem ou aspirar para tirar todo o produto.

- Ao cair vinho tinto, coca-cola, vomito, remova a mancha com uma esponja umedecida com água com gás até a retirada total.

- Nunca coloque seu tapete em um piso ainda úmido, espere-o secar muito bem.

- Saiba que Franjas e debruns, são importantíssimos em um tapete. Eles são os verdadeiros alicerces para que não venha a ocorrer a perda da lã, dos seus desenhos e trama, evitando assim restauração na peça.
