Harry Redknapp picks up the phone, seemingly bewildered that we have an interview – even though he’s been doing the rounds all morning and I’m his last slot of the day. Still, we plough on amiably as the ex-football manager, jam roly-poly lover and jungle king (he won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2018 and captured the heart of the nation) talks about his life beyond football and other musings in his new book, The World According To Harry. It’s really difficult not to like Redknapp, 72, who worries that he loves his wife too much, says family is his top priority, and reckons he’d like to be remembered as a nice person who had time for everybody – whether billionaire or pauper – and treated them with equal respect. He’s quick to tell you what’s wrong with football today – crazy money, players not being in touch with the fans, social media watching their every move – and how the England squad would … [Read more...] about Harry Redknapp: ‘I don’t think I could live without Sandra’

IS it dreadful of me to admit that I don’t like my own daughter? By Jane O'Gorman/Published 16th April 2019 GIRL IS A STRAIN: He is having trouble accepting his daughter's extrovert lifestyle [FILE PIC] (Pic: Eric Herchaft/Getty Images) She is 23 and we have just reconnected after a 10-year separation. When her mum and I divorced I went down to the south coast to live with my new partner.My daughter visited a couple of times but couldn’t get on with my partner (who has since died), so the visits fizzled out.These days I live just around the corner from her in my home town and see her a couple of times a week – usually when she wants something. PROBLEMS: She drinks too much [FILE PIC] (Pic: Flashpop/Getty Images) I’ve tried my very best to love and understand her, but she’s not a good person.I can accept that she’s selfish and vain, because she’s young, but she’s also tricky and untrustworthy too. I’m sure that stuff has gone … [Read more...] about Just Jane: My daughter, 23, drinks too much and sleeps around, is it bad I don’t like her?
IT makes me seriously angry to read that Britain provided £1 in every £8 of foreign aid handed out by 29 major countries last year, according to figures this week. At the best of times it is pretty hard to justify the use of taxpayers’ money in far-flung countries where the impact or relevance to the UK is all but impossible to identify. But looking around at the state this country is in, I’m more adamant than ever that we need to all but scrap foreign aid. I cannot see how on earth we can justify allotting our precious money to other countries when there is no evidence it helps. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. For a start, not one recipient seems grateful. But more importantly, we are almost skint ourselves, so not exactly in a position to be flash with our cash. Are you aware that we have to pay £50BILLION A YEAR simply in interest, servicing our own debt. So that is before we pay off any of the actual debt. Universal Credit forcing starving kids to … [Read more...] about There’s 14m Brits living in poverty — don’t waste £1.3bn on foreign aid for projects such as Ethiopian pop groups
