Tony Abbott offers married couples voucher for counselling

first_imgThe Telegraph 3 September 2013Tony Abbott, Australia’s opposition leader, plans to save and strengthen thenation’s romantic relationships by offering £120 vouchers for counselling tocouples who get engaged and those already married.The vouchers will be offered to married couples for conflict resolution or parenting classes, while engaged couples could have pre-marital counselling. The Liberal party has proposed to offer about 100,000 “relationship vouchers“ as part of a one-year trial. The vouchers would be offered to same-sex couples despite the opposition of both Mr Abbott and his party to gay marriage.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/10271350/Tony-Abbott-offers-married-couples-voucher-for-counselling.html Mr Abbott, a staunch Catholic and the favourite to win Australia’s election on September 7, is married with three daughters but long believed he had a “lost son” from a relationship he had while at school and university. Years later, as a federal minister, Mr Abbott was reunited with the “son”, who was then aged 27, but DNA testing later showed the child was not his.center_img The vouchers were reportedly a pet project of Mr Abbott’s Liberal party colleague, Kevin Andrews, an MP who is a strong proponent of marriage and last year authored a book called Maybe ’I do’: Modern Marriage and the Pursuit of Happiness. The book says the biggest threat facing the Western world is not climate change or radical Islam, but the “continuing breakdown of the essential structures of civil society — marriage, family and community”.last_img read more

Messi, Ronaldo name toughest opponents they’ve faced

first_img Both the Juventus superstar and Barcelona captain have amassed an incredible amount of silverware en route to establishing themselves as two of the best footballers of all time. But Ronaldo and Messi have had their fair share of battles with defenders and some have proved far trickier than others. Speaking to DAZN, Messi surprisingly snubbed the likes of Sergio Ramos and Diego Godin as his toughest opponent. Instead, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner named his pick as Spanish right-back Pablo Maffeo, who he said proved to be an “intense” opposition. “Man-marking doesn’t bother me — you know that there will be tough matches and it can be strange to always have someone around you,” Messi said. “In truth, it hasn’t happened to me that often. It doesn’t bother me, but it is strange. “Pablo Maffeo of Girona [was the toughest man-marker]. That was intense! “I’ve never been one who complains. I think physical contact and kicks are part of the game. “I get more annoyed when I play bad and I get a little more angry. But if I’m not [playing bad], it’s not a problem, it’s part of the game and I don’t take it personally.” Ronaldo, meanwhile, has played in the likes of the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Primeira Liga in his club career. The 35-year-old Portuguese superstar revealed his toughest opposition came in the form of former Arsenal and Chelsea defender Ashley Cole.

South Africa crush England inside 4 days

first_img(REUTERS) – SOUTH Africa swept to a 107-run victory over England on the fourth day of the first test at Centurion Park on Sunday after taking seven wickets in the second session to go ahead in the four-match series.England, needing an improbable 376 to win, were bowled out for 268 just before tea as their bottom order offered scant resistance to a barrage of pace once South Africa had taken the second new ball.Kagiso Rabada proved the destroyer-in-chief with 4-103, assisted by Anrich Nortje who took three wickets for 56 runs.“Our bowling unit was very effective and it is a massive confidence booster for our team,” said South Africa captain Faf du Plessis after arresting a run of five successive test defeats.“We played with great skills over the last two days with contributions from everyone.”England had been hoping for heroics in a delicately poised contest as they started the day on 121-1 and still looked capable of a dramatic win despite losing two wickets by lunch.But the turning point proved the key wickets of both England captain Joe Root and potential match-winner Ben Stokes.Kagiso Rabada struck with the new ball © Associated PressStokes, who had led England’s highest ever successful run chase when they scored 362-9 at Headingley to beat Australia earlier this year, was bowled by spinner Keshav Maharaj for 14 just as he and Root were increasing the run rate after England had gone to lunch on 171-3.The second new ball then accounted for Jonny Bairstow, who hit a boundary off Rabada before edging the second delivery of the 81st over to gully, where Zubayr Hamza took a sharp catch.Root battled his way to 48 before being caught behind, effectively ending England’s hopes.“We turned up today with a real belief that we could win but unfortunately we weren’t able to do it,” he said.He was undone by a fuller delivery from Nortje, playing a poor shot outside off stump and getting a nick through to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.The last four wickets followed quickly thereafter as the tail was swept away by Rabada and Nortje.Rory Burns (84) and Joe Denly (31) were dismissed before lunch to tip the contest in the home team’s favour.The teams now move onto Cape Town for the second test at Newlands from Jan. 3-7.ScoreboardSouth Africa 1st innings 284 all out………………………………………………………..England 1st innings 181 all out………………………………………………………..South Africa 2nd innings 272 all out…………………………………………………………..England 2nd inningsRory Burns c Kagiso Rabada b Anrich Nortje 84Dominic Sibley c&b Keshav Maharaj 29Joe Denly lbw Dwaine Pretorius 31Joe Root c Quinton de Kock b Anrich Nortje 48Ben Stokes b Keshav Maharaj 14Jonny Bairstow c Zubayr Hamza b Kagiso Rabada 9Jos Buttler c Dwaine Pretorius b Kagiso Rabada 22Sam Curran c Quinton de Kock b Kagiso Rabada 9Jofra Archer c Rassie van der Dussen b Anrich Nortje 4Stuart Broad b Kagiso Rabada 6Extras 8b 3lb 0nb 0pen 1w 12Total (93.0 overs) 268 all outFall of Wickets : 1-92 Sibley, 2-139 Burns, 3-158 Denly, 4-204 Stokes, 5-222 Bairstow, 6-232 Root, 7-251 Curran, 8-256 Archer, 9-262 Buttler, 10-268 BroadDid Not Bat : AndersonBowling Ov Md Rn Wk Econ ExKagiso Rabada 24 3 103 4 4.29Vernon Philander 20 8 35 0 1.75Anrich Nortje 17 4 56 3 3.29 1wDwaine Pretorius 16 6 26 1 1.62Keshav Maharaj 16 3 37 2 2.31last_img read more
