SHOPS TO HELP THE FAREPAK VICTIMS...

SHOP bosses offered hope of a little festive cheer yesterday to victims of the Christmas savings club collapse.

The British Retail Consortium will meet TradeMinister Ian McCartney at the weekend to discuss what they can do for those who were fleeced.

McCartney hopes the BRC - an umbrella group for High Street stores - will ensure every family can at least sit down to a proper Christmas dinner.

That's despite the fact that Farepak - who went bust owing more than £8million to 20,000 Scots - were not BRC members.

McCartney will examine if business rules were broken by Farepak bosses, including the millionaire chairman of the parent company Sir Clive Thompson. They may be barred from holding directorships for up to 12 years if they took people's cash when they knew the firm were broke.

McCartney said he will "throw the book at them" if that happened, a source said. The minister met administrators and industry chiefs in a bid to discover the truth.

He is now waiting for an official report but hit out at "this shocking company" in the Commons. He said: "I can understand why people are angry and frightened about being fleeced and so badly let down."

McCartney is optimistic he can persuade the BRC to step in and save Christmas dinner for tens of thousands of families across Britain.

He said: "Although they have no legal obligation to the Farepak customers, Britain has many nationally and internationally successful retailers."

His outrage is shared by MPs, who have been flooded with appeals for help from those hit by the collapse.

Dozens have demanded a Commons inquiry into what went wrong.

Farepak savers made weekly payments in return for food, drink and gift vouchers for High Street stores.

Just 18 months ago, they reported a £1.2million profit.

The Nuclear fuel cycle

Introduction :: Mining uranium

Uranium is the basic raw material of both civilian and military nuclear programmes.

It is extracted from either open-cast pits or by underground mining. Although uranium occurs naturally all over the world, only a small fraction is found in concentrated ores.

When certain atoms of uranium are split in a chain reaction, energy is released. This process is called nuclear fission.

In a nuclear power station this fission occurs slowly, while in a nuclear weapon, very rapidly. In both instances, fission must be very carefully controlled.

Nuclear fission works best if isotopes - atoms with the same atomic number, but different numbers of neutrons - of uranium 235 (or plutonium 239) are used. Uranium-235 is known as a "fissile isotope" because of its propensity to split in a chain reaction, releasing energy in the form of heat.

When a U-235 atom splits, it emits two or three neutrons.

When other U-235 atoms are present, these neutrons collide with them causing the other atoms to split, producing more neutrons.

A nuclear reaction will only take place if there are enough u-235 atoms present to allow this process to continue as a self-sustaining chain reaction. This requirement is known as "critical mass".

However, every 1,000 atoms of naturally-occurring uranium contain only seven atoms of U-235, with the remaining 993 being denser U-238.

 

MAJOR URANIUM PRODUCERS:

Australia, Canada, China, Kazakhstan, Namibia, Niger, Russia, Uzbekistan

Quick guide: Conflict in Northern Ireland
The conflict in Northern Ireland, which has killed thousands, has political and religious roots that are centuries old.

In modern times the conflict has centred on opposing views of the area's status.

WHAT IS A QUICK GUIDE?
Quick guides are concise explanations of topics or issues in the news.

Some people in Northern Ireland, especially the mainly Protestant Unionist community, believe it should remain part of the United Kingdom.

Others, particularly the mainly Catholic Nationalist community, believe it should leave the UK and become part of the Republic of Ireland.

Origins

Since the 12th Century constant revolts challenged the often brutal British rule of Ireland, climaxing in the 1916 Easter Uprising in Dublin.

It sparked a chain of events leading to civil war and partition of the island.

Map showing UK
The six counties of Northern Ireland chose to remain within the UK
In the south 26 counties formed a separate state, while six counties in the north stayed within the UK.

Over successive decades the Catholic minority in the north suffered discrimination over housing and jobs, which fuelled bitter resentment.

The 'Troubles' begin

In 1969 Catholic civil rights marches and counter-protests by Protestant loyalists (as in "loyal" to the British Crown) spiralled into violent unrest.

British troops were sent in but soon came into conflict with the Provisional IRA (Irish Republican Army).

Loyalist paramilitary groups responded with a campaign of sectarian violence against the Catholic community.

As the situation worsened, Northern Ireland's parliament was suspended and direct rule imposed from London.

Violence on all sides

Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s paramilitary groups waged violent campaigns to pursue their goals.

The IRA carried out deadly bomb and gun attacks in Britain and Northern Ireland that targeted police, soldiers, politicians and civilians.

Loyalist paramilitaries targeted Catholics in "tit-for-tat" killings.

Police and British forces tried to keep order, sometimes amid controversy, such as the alleged co-operation of some undercover units with loyalist groups.

Peace in sight

In the early 1990s negotiations took place between political parties and the British and Irish governments.

After several years of talks IRA and loyalist ceasefires held and in 1998 the "Good Friday" agreement was signed.

It set up a power-sharing executive, with ministerial posts distributed by party strength, and elected assembly.

The deal was backed by voters in referendums in Northern Ireland and the Republic, which scrapped its constitutional claim to the north.

Fragile future?

Problems remain as devolution has been suspended several times since it began.

It was last suspended in October 2002 over allegations of a republican spying ring at Stormont. The case against the accused later collapsed and one of the defendants was revealed to be a British agent. He was found shot dead in April 2006.

 

 

In September 2005 the arms decommissioning body confirmed the IRA had put all its weapons beyond use. But Unionists said they remained sceptical without any photographic proof.

A deadline has now been set by the government for the Northern Ireland Assembly to resolve its differences and resume power-sharing by 24 November 2006.

CHARLES IN TAX PROBE

PRINCE Charles was facing calls last night to explain why he is given a "£100million tax break".

Edward Leigh, Tory chairman of the Commons public accounts committee, has written to the Treasury asking why the Duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster fail to pay corporation or capital gains tax.

Last year, Charles got £14million from the Duchy of Cornwall, which is his main source of income, while the Duchy of Lancaster provides income for the Queen.

And Labour committee member MP Ian Davidson said: "It is wrong that Prince Charles should be avoiding tax of £100million.

"It's an enormous sum and should be audited."

Councils offered millions to take nuclear waste...

COUNCILS are being urged to volunteer their communities as radioactive waste dumps in exchange for millions of pounds, after ministers agreed that deep storage was the best solution for dealing with the nuclear legacy.

David Miliband, the Environment Secretary, appealed to local authorities to get in touch if they wanted their areas considered.

 

"We are strongly supportive of exploring the concept of voluntarism and partnership arrangements with the local authorities serving communities who might be affected," he told MPs.

However, Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrats' environment spokesman, called his remarks "civil-service weasel words", and he warned that nuclear storage could still be imposed on local authorities.

Environmental campaigners also condemned the offer. Duncan McLaren, the chief executive of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said: "Solving the problem should not begin with bribes, but should instead start with a pledge not to create any more waste."

The government will face a battle finding any council in Scotland that is willing and able to take the waste. The Scotsman contacted those that contained sites previously shortlisted as being geologically suitable, and all said they would not volunteer.

Fuday and Sandray in the Western Isles had been shortlisted by Nirex, the radioactive waste body, as suitable sites.

Donald Manford, an SNP councillor for the area, said the community would resist any moves to use it as a nuclear-waste dumping site.

North Ayrshire Council, which houses the Hunterston nuclear power station, said it would not host a repository. Highland Council, which contains the other two shortlisted Scottish sites, Dounreay and Altnabreac, also said it would not volunteer.

The bunkers for nuclear waste, which will take "several decades" to construct, will be sunk some 200 to 1,000 metres underground and will have an estimated capacity of 470,000 cubic metres. The chosen locations will have to be in an area where the rock structure provides a barrier against radioactive leakage.

Mr Miliband also said the government intended to build interim storage facilities capable of holding waste for up to 100 years while the bunkers were being built.

CRIMINAL WEATHER...

Crimes can be predicted by the weather, it's claimed. Research in Holland suggests burglaries are 50 per cent more likely on cold, cloudy days, while violent crime goes up when it is sunny.
