We want our
partners to change their ways - and we're brutally honest about it
PEOPLE in the North West
want to change their loved ones. A new survey revealed that 60% of
people in the North West in a relationship want their partner to
shed the flab so they're healthier.
Proving brutal honesty is the best policy, being straight with your
partner and asking them outright (63%) was the most popular way to
help them change their behaviour. This is according to figures
released by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to publicise Heart
Matters, a free service providing support and practical tips to turn
your heart health around.
There are over 298,000 people living with heart disease in the North
West. Being overweight increases your risk of developing heart
disease, and smokers have around a 60% greater chance of dying from
heart disease than non-smokers.
The data showed it's not just small changes people want to see in
their partners – 63% of those who said they would like their partner
to lose some weight so they are healthier admitted they want their
partner to lose a stone or more.
Of the 154 men and women in relationships questioned in the North
West, surprisingly people weren't as concerned about their partner's
boozing – 28% of those whose partner drinks alcohol wanted their
partner to cut down their drinking.
Heart Matters is the BHF's free membership programme and provides
vital information and support for people with or at risk of heart
disease and their loved ones, giving you the inspiration to turn
your life around.

THE centenary of the birth
of one of Britain's outstanding trade union leaders is to be
celebrated next week.
Jack Jones was born in York
Street, Garston on 29 March 1913, His career embraced local
politics, fighting in the Spanish Civil War, the leadership of
Britain's biggest trade union and campaigning for pensioners'
Community artworks by local artists Alan Murray and Nicola Taggart
unveiled on Thursday, 28 March 2013, in York Street with a
procession from Railway Street, which included local school children
and residents. The artworks includes a mural at York Street
commemorating key events in Jack Jones' life. There is also
individual pieces at Railway Street about Garston icons and local
people's reflections of the area.
Jack Jones worked at Liverpool Docks and joined the Transport and
General Workers Union in 1927 He served as the youngest member of
Liverpool Council between 1936 and 39. In 1937 he volunteered to
fight with the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War, being
wounded in 1938 at the Battle of Ebro,
On returning to Britain he became a full-time official with the
TGWU, becoming its General Secretary in 1968. During his time in
office he became a household name as the membership of his union
grew to two million.
On his retirement he fought for pensioners' rights through the
National Pensioners Convention which he chaired from 1979 to 2001.
He died in April 2009.
"Jack Jones' life was one of selfless devotion to improving the
lives of working people and pensioners. He was never interested in
personal honours – he turned down a peerage and his whole life was
dedicated to helping others. He is one of Liverpool's greatest sons
and it is only right that he should be honoured in his birthplace in
Garston." said the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson.
Unite general secretary, Len McCluskey added that:- "Jack
Jones was an inspiration to all who met him. He was a great fighter
who fought fascism and injustice to create a better life for
ordinary people. It is an inspiration to see children from local
schools, residents, employers and workers coming together to
celebrate Jack's life and all that he stood for. He was a great man
who touched so many lives and it is a privilege to be taking part in
such an event in his home town of Liverpool."
Councillor Steve Munby, City Council cabinet member said:- "It
is very appropriate that we should be honouring Jack Jones at this
time as not only is it his centenary but some of the challenges he
faced in his lifetime are now confronting the City and we should be
inspired by his work as we deal with them."
The artwork and a celebration event are being funded by Speke
Garston ward Councillors, South Liverpool Neighbourhood team,
Enterprise Liverpool, South Liverpool Housing, Liverpool Housing
Trust and Unite.
