Kristin Scott Thomas reckons British women have no style.

“The English, it’s terrible,” the English actress said in anew interview. “They dare to wear mini-skirts when they don’t have the legs for them… it’s funny, this concept of ‘bad taste’ doesn’t exist in England. Neither in beauty or fashion.”

Bad taste or not, at least they are not “dishwater dull” as one Women’s Wear Daily fashion editor said red carpet fashion has become.

In fact, this year’s Brit Awards on Wednesday night, where it was a case of more is more, have been called the ‘worst red carpet’ ever.

Ruffles, feathers, pleats, dress trains and lace, pops of bright colour, mons pubis and more.

It was all there. Often all at once.

Standouts on the night included 27-year-old Adele who dominated, winning four awards as well as on the fashion front in a wavy sea of brilliant burgundy and newly bobbed bed hair.

Rihanna, who later on practically had sex with Drake onstage, looked positively demure on the red carpet, a picture of simple elegance in ruffled lilac Giorgio Armani Privé dress, spiced with her henna tattoo-hands.

But, they were two wins on a bleeding trail of epic fashion fails.

The pop group Little Mix, with their spray-painted make-up, OTT accessories and garish outfits all looked like Barbies styled by Mattel.

Designer Pam Hogg’s date arrived, a virtually naked, BDSM-channeling Ziggy Stardust.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wore a lemon mini-dress with a train, bouffant hair with excessive extensions and stacks of sparkling jewels while Lana Del Ray looked subdued about being caught wearing floral curtains from her gran’s house, complete with olive green cord. She also nicked her gran’s fluffy yellow slippers.

Many starlets wore chokers when they really didn’t need to as the fashion was already choking.

Not that we mind. There was plenty of bad taste, but at least it wasn’t bland.

Living beyond the sandman

Learning to fly: Steve Abbott in Newcastle. Picture: Simone De Peak A MIDDLE-AGED man walks into a Centrelink office to apply for the dole.
南京夜网

The young man behind the counter says, don’t I know you from somewhere?

The middle-aged man says, “No, I don’t think I know you.”

But the guy behind the counter insists, “No, I definitely know you from somewhere.”

After a long pause the man relents, “Maybe you have seen me on TV.”

The younger man’s eyes light up with recognition,” Sandman, you’re The Sandman. Oh this is so cool.”

This humiliating moment was just one of the highlights of the lowlights oflife after “minor celebrity” for comic Steve Abbott.

“You are in the sunshine for a while and then it stops,” Abbott saysof the years in which his face was recognised across the nation for his character The Sandman.

Abbott moved to Newcastle in 1976 with his parents. He completed a bachelor of arts with a major in drama at the University of Newcastle between 1976 and 1981.

“I was theatrically born in Newcastle,” Abbott says reflecting on histime here whenthe city was a burgeoninghub of performing arts.“There were a lot of vacant buildings, amiable publicans and a can-do spirit.”

Abbott’s career began with the band Newcastle band The Musical Flags which by about 1982 had morphed into the legendary The Castanet Club – it was both a band and a venue located at the back of the Clarendon Hotelon Hunter Street.

His band-mates included Mikey Robins, Maynard, Angela Moore, Glenn Butcher, Penny Biggins and Russell Cheek. The Castanets, with a lively set mixing comedy, theatrics and music, built a strong following in Newcastle and across the country. Abbott was then known on stage as “Johnny Goodman”.

And it was these friendships and associations which would drag Abbott through the doors of the studios at Triple J and shoot the character of The Sandman into the public realm during the 1990s. It began as spots on the breakfast show with Mikey Robins and Helen Razor.

Speaking in a deadpan voice, he delivered tips for living, recollections of a sad life and morose observations in 80-second segments for the station’s young listeners.

Abbott drew on his own life as The Sandman character evolved.

“He was what I would have been if I had done everything my mother told me to do when I was growing up,” he says.“He was anonly child and a perennial loser and a character a lot of people related to.

“When I was younger I had chronic insecurity, I was able to draw on that feeling of being on the edge of things at school, for example, and I think I was quite shy at school and that is the period of my life that I drew on for Sandman – primary school to about 16 or 17.He is emotionally stunted.”

A portrait of The Sandman by Newcastle artistMichael Bell which was a finalist for the 2000 Archibald Prize captures the character perfectly. Bell and Abbott had a long association _ Bellhad designed posters for The Castanet Club and art work for several of Abbott’s books.

The work was painted in a studio above the old Lucky Country Hotel. Itwas so large it had to be lowered through a window down into the street below.

“The Sandman was quiet recognisable in those days, it drew a crowd and a round of applause,” Abbott says.

In the painting The Sandman stands dressed only in a collared shirt, red tie, and sports jacket – he is naked from the waist down – at the edge of the ocean. Behind him is a desolate ocean and sky painted in the hues of the Broken Hill outback where Abbott was born. He looks like he might be about to throw himself in and swim away.

“I loved it…he looks like a depressed, disappointed man,” Abbott says of the work. “It’s a bit creepy, it’s the inner Sandman, a bit darker.

“It’s a guy on the point of ending it all, like he is about to swim out to sea.”

The work was completed at the peak ofAbbott’s career whichwas also soon to be heading out to sea.The problem was, according to Abbott, the Sandman was the “second banana” – a term used in theatre to describe an actor who plays a supporting role.

When Robins left Triple J in 1999; The Sandman followed a year later.

“I was trying to work out how to end204 Bell Street, so it dragged on a bit,” Abbott says.

The204 Bell Streetbook was based on Abbott’sexperiences living in a share-house in Bull Street, Cooks Hill. It had been serialised for radio.

After Triple J he continued working. There were several TV series with Paul McDermott, and a a successful documentary,Sandman in Siberia,on SBS which saw Abbott with his mother Evelyn return to Russia to reunite with long lost cousins.

The documentarywas followed by two seasons ofIn SiberiaTonight, a variety show broadcast on SBS in which Abbott played himself for the first time.

His mother worked with him on the show, presenting a cooking segment.

“That started a bit of a performing relationship, “Abbott says.“After we went to Russia we discovered we had a great chemistry.

“Mum can’t act, but she’s real.”

In December 2015, Evelyn entered a nursing home.

“She has dementia, she is declining, she’s 86. It’s pretty tragic,” he says.

The show ran for two seasons. After a round of cutbacks at the broadcaster it was axed in favour ofRockwiz.

“They made the right choice causeRockwizis great. But it’s like ‘Welcome to showbiz,’” Abbott says with a shrug.

He was still performing in the years after SBS but it seemed The Sandman’s light was fading.

“I didn’t know what to do with the Sandman after that. I didn’t know what to do next,” Abbott says.

“I was still getting laughs doing the old material. I wasn’t writing new stuff and I was just trying to make a living.”

“I made a good living in that 10 years and I kept living like I was making good money.”

Abbott said the financial pressure pushed him into taking jobs he didnt really want to be doing.

“Then you realise, you’re letting yourself down by going on in underwhelming circumstances.”

The crunch came at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2010.

“I did one set of shows in Melbourne and thought ‘why am I doing this, why am I performing’,” Abbott says.

“I was doing the same material I had done yonks ago.

“I was a lot older and the audience who had grew up with me were now not really going out anymore. Nobody knew who I was.

“And I had fallen out of love with performing.”

Without knowing what would be next Abbottdecided to “kill off Sandman.”

In the following years work was scarce, the bank balance low and his marriage to fellow formerCastanet Angela Moore ended.

“I drifted into screen writing and TV drama,” Abbott says.

He now works in partnership with fellow former Castanet Warren Coleman, whoco-wrote the Oscar-winning movieHappy Feet. The pair work on an array of projects including animations for American and Canadian producers. They hold high hopes for a 10-part drama they are working on for Australian television.

“We started working on a project,” he says.

“We had a bit of chemistry as a screenwriting team and that’s really what I do these days.”

The pair also wrote a stand-up show calledSteve and the Birds of Sandmanwhich explores the void left after time in the lime-light. It was performed at Newcastle Fringe in January.

And despite Abbott’s claim that The Sandman is dead, in 2015 he was briefly resurrected for a series of TV commercials for Broken Hill Community Credit Union.

“I think somebody looked me up on Wikipedia and realised I was born in Broken Hill,” Abbott says.“They must have been desperate for minor celebrities there.

“It was the first time I have pulled the Sandman out in ages.I got paid reasonably well to do that job and so I did it.

“But Sandy is gone.”

Abbott is also working on a project which would see one of the old Wickham wool stores converted into acultural precinct. He saysits early days, but he hopesit willgo ahead.

“Who knows, I may end up back in Newcastle,” Abbott said.

NSW council merger plans ‘no different to Islamic State’ actions: councillor

Paul Rankin is the Deputy Mayor of Shellharbour City Council. Photo: Illawarra MercuryThe deputy mayor of a council on the NSW south coast has compared the State Government’s council merger plans to Islamic State’s actions in the Middle East, accusing it of “wiping out borders, destroying monuments”.
南京夜网

“This government is actually a terrorist organisation,” said Paul Rankin, the Deputy Mayor of Shellharbour City Council, during a melodramatic council meeting on Tuesday night.

Shellharbour councillors had each been speaking in support of placing an interim heritage order around some of the properties along Shellharbour’s border with Wollongong in the wake of the NSW government’s proposal to merge Shellharbour and Wollongong councils, the Illawarra Mercury reports.

The interim heritage order aimed to “protect the historic integrity of the local government area which is under imminent threat as a result of the current merger proposal by the state government”.

Councillor Rankin took a hard line stance, saying “at the stroke of a pen, these people can wipe out borders”.

“These people are going to rewrite our history, this is no different to what ISIS [Islamic State] are doing over in the Middle East, going back and changing the history, wiping out borders, destroying monuments,” he said.

Liberal councillor Kellie Marsh said she was acting as “a humble servant of the British Empire” and believed it was her “civic duty to make sure we protect our borders”.

“If you look at some of the biggest atrocities in history, what’s it over? Borders,” she said. “Yet we’re still fighting about it in these modern times.”

Cr John Murray said there were “lifestyle differences” between Wollongong and Shellharbour, which is why the boundaries needed to be heritage listed, while Mayor Marianne Saliba simply began listing off some of the history books that had been written about the area.

She listed such classics as Tongarra Tales, Oak Flats Garden Suburb, The Albion Park Saga, Voices of a Lifetime: Personal Memories of the Shellharbour Area, Shellharbour Memories, and the follow up, Shellharbour Memories Book Two.

“We have six generations that have lived in this municipality, and I think it would be a terrible shame for us to lose our history,” Cr Saliba said.

“We want our borders to be recognised as having historical significance.”

Greens councillor Peter Moran said the interim heritage order was “a stalking horse” to prevent the merger of the two councils, but supported the move to protect the history of Shellharbour.

He said he also hoped to see all six council chamber buildings within Shellharbour heritage listed in the near future.

The council will now move to have the interim heritage order over the boundaries of 19 private properties in Calderwood and Albion Park gazetted.

It remains unclear if this will prevent the proposed amalgamation with Wollongong.

Currencies

The pound sank below $US1.39 for the first time since March 2009, while a gauge of anxiety in currency markets showed traders are preparing for even more extreme moves

SEB has closed its bet on the pound weakening against the US dollar, one of its top trades for 2016. The trade generated a 7 per cent profit after the recommendation to sell on December 12, according to a note from Richard Falkenhall, a currency strategist at the bank.

Ongoing strength in the US job market could give the Federal Reserve justification for multiple interest rate increases this year, Richmond Fed president Jeffrey Lacker said on Wednesday. “I still think prospects for rate increases this year is the logical” view, Lacker said in a presentation to a business school in Baltimore, adding that economic data did not indicate that a recession was imminent in the United States.

Commodities

Oil futures were little changed at $US31.89 a barrel in New York, after erasing a retreat of 3.7 per cent after data on US stockpiles. Crude stockpiles rose 3.5 million barrels to 507.6 million last week, according to the Energy Information Administration. Supplies of gasoline and distillate fuel, a category that includes diesel and heating oil, slipped.

LME tin jumped 1.7 per cent to close at $US16,000 a tonne after touching a session high of $US16,145, near to Tuesday’s four-month peak. Tin has rallied after lower prices prompted an Indonesian smelter to shut, potentially deepening a global supply deficit. The premium of LME cash tin to the three-month contract jumped to $US175 a tonne, the highest since October, indicating tight supplies.

Gold rose, acting as counter against risk alongside top-rated government bonds. Technically, gold looks set to test recent highs at a one-year top of $US1260, MKS Group said in a note.

United States

Stocks were mixed on Wall Street in late trade on Wednesday as investors focused on banks’ vulnerability to decade-low oil prices that have left energy companies struggling to pay their debts and a rise in Apple propped up the S&P 500.

Six of the 10 major S&P sectors were higher, with telecoms up 0.55 percent thanks to a 0.77 per cent increase in AT&T. Apple was up 0.9 per cent.

Earlier losses were erased after oil reversed direction. “We’re moving along with oil,” Larry Peruzzi, managing director of international equities at Mischler Financial Group in Boston. “The Nasdaq is also leading with tech trying to provide a little bit of leadership but there’s just shockwaves and reversals right now after the market sold off. It’s a lot of noise and volatility.”

Europe

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slipped 2.5 per cent, falling for a second day amid the downturn in commodity prices, disappointing earnings results and dissipating faith in central bank support. It hasn’t posted two consecutive days of gains since December.

A measure of stock volatility climbed for a second day, taking its increase to 49 per cent for 2016. The year has been particularly brutal for European shares as a slump in lenders added to concerns over global growth and the oil rout. The Stoxx 600 hasn’t posted more than two consecutive days of gains since December.

Despite a rebound last week, European shares have fallen 6.4 per cent this month. That sent the Stoxx 600’s valuation to about 13.9 times estimated earnings, from the 16.7 reached at the April peak.

What happened yesterday

A savage reversal in the recent commodities rally hit Australian shares hard on Wednesday despite some solid earnings results, as investors punished the big four banks and BHP endured its worst day since 2008 with a massive 8.2 per cent fall.

A decline on Wall Street plus a 5 per cent drop in Brent crude oil to $US32.94 per barrel brought the market down from the onset, with the benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index continuing to slide in the session to finish 104 points, or 2.1 per cent, lower at 4875.0 while the broader All Ordinaries index slipped 1.9 per cent to 4943.3.

Wall Street mixed as Apple rises and banks warn about oil

Financial stocks fell amid concerns what the oil industry’s woes will do to banks’ loan books.

南京夜网

Six of the 10 major S&P sectors traded higher, with telecoms up 0.55 per cent thanks to a 0.77 per cent increase in AT&T.

The S&P financial sector, already the worst performing sector this year, fell 0.69 per cent and was the biggest loser among the sectors.

Shares of Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup were among the worst hit.

JPMorgan flagged declining investment banking revenue and raised its provisions for energy loan losses, while Morgan Stanley said most of its energy loans were to non-investment grade firms.

Crude prices near 2003 lows have hammered the earnings of US energy companies, exacerbated fears of a slowing global economy and created turbulence on Wall Street that has left the S&P 500 almost 7 per cent weaker since the start of the year.

“We had a nice rebound in stocks last week after a terrible January, and we’re nearing the end of that bounce,” said Mohannad Aama, managing director at Beam Capital Management in New York. “The general trend is down.”

At 2:29 pm in New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 0.12 per cent at 16,411.38 and the S&P 500 was flat at 1,921.2.

The Nasdaq Composite added 0.43 per cent to 4,522.90, helped by a 0.87 per cent rise in Apple. Concerns about slowing iPhone sales had pushed Apple’s stock down 19 per cent in the past three months.

Boeing fell 1.65 per cent after Goldman Sachs cut its price target on the stock.

Ford declined 3.3 per cent and General Motors was off 2.3 per cent after Credit Suisse said it was a “poor time” to own auto stocks.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by 1503 to 1479. On the Nasdaq, 1531 issues rose and 1191 fell.

The S&P 500 index showed eight new 52-week highs and five new lows, while the Nasdaq recorded nine new highs and 90 lows.
