ROMANTIC gestures and gifts are usually considered key to a flourishing relationship. But nothing screams love more than forgiving your husband for running you over. Harry Redknapp and wife Sandra first met in East London when they were 17 In Part Two of his exclusive interview, King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp, 71, tells the epic love story of life with wife of 51 years Sandra. Jungle king Harry has been sacked as a manager, charged with tax fraud and survived a minibus crash that killed a close friend. But the scariest moment of his life came in 2016 when he ran over his own wife. Unaware that Sandra’s coat tail was trapped in the door of his Range Rover door, Harry drove away, dragging her down the road. Harry Redknapp and Sandra were both born and bred in London’s East End Revealing for the first time what she said to him in hospital after accident, he told The Sun: “It was the worst experience of my life but she honestly never even blamed me — and it was completely my fault. “I wasn’t concentrating, I thought she’d crossed the road and then I pulled into the road and she was backed up against my car. “She never said to me, ‘You should have watched what you were doing’ or made me feel bad. Even when she was laying with a broken ankle in the road she was just unbelievable, she didn’t scream. “The worst part of it was Molly my granddaughter was on a bus and she sees her nan lying in the road. Harry and Sandra have been married for 51 years and have two sons, Mark and Jamie “She happened to be on the bus going to work about 20 yards away. In hospital I kept apologising. But she just said, ‘You thought I’d crossed the road, there’s no blame’. “She didn’t say, ‘You stupid idiot’, even though I felt like a stupid idiot.” Sandra’s understanding sums up the extraordinary bond between the pair, whose mutual love captivated I’m A Celeb viewers.

You couldn’t row with my missus even if you tried. “She’s so placid, she’s so caring with everybody.” The couple first met at the Two Puddings pub in Stratford, East London, in the Sixties. Harry ran over wife Sandra after she got her coat caught in the door The former Spurs and Portsmouth boss was a 17-year-old West Ham youth prospect at the time and Sandra, also 17, was a hairdresser. Harry, who was with West Ham team mate Colin Mackleworth at the disco upstairs, says: “We went to have a dance with her and her mate. “Macca was a good-looking geezer, so when Sandra saw us she must have looked at me and thought, ‘I hope I ain’t got him’.” Two weeks later, they were a couple. At the same time, Sandra’s sister Pat got together with Harry’s close pal Frank Lampard Snr, another West Ham team mate. Harry’s wife Sandra has been by his side through all his football highs and personal lows Harry says: “Neither Sandra or Pat had ever been to football, their dad had never been to football. “They weren’t a football-type family who thought, ‘I love football and we’re gonna marry a footballer’.” Despite having little in common, Harry went down well with the in-laws — but Sandra’s dad, Bob Harris, was still an intimidating force. Harry recalls: “He was a docker, he was a foreman down the Albert Dock. He was a big man, lovely man but you didn’t mess around with him. “I used to take Sandra back home and Frank used to take Pat home and he’d give us ten minutes in the house downstairs. [bc_video video_id=”5977388317001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Harry Redknapp cries when he talks about wife Sandra on I’m A Celebrity”] “We used to hear ‘bang, bang’ on the ceiling and we knew it was time to go. I’m not telling you a lie, swear to God. Ten minutes — ‘bosh’. “You didn’t argue with him. When he said ‘Go’, you go.” The couple, who were both born and bred in London’s East End, now enjoy a quiet life in Sandbanks on the Dorset coast in their £3.5million mansion, where they regularly entertain their five grandchildren. Sandra, 71, kept the house in check, while Harry focused on the pressures of football management. And Sandra’s determination to give Harry a stress-free home environment knew no bounds. Harry professes his love for wife Sandra in I’m A Celeb jungle Harry explains: “She once fell over the Henry Hoover and broke her kneecap when I was managing in London. “She crawled up the stairs at 9pm and got in bed, took a paracetamol, and next day she woke up in agony, but she didn’t want to disturb anybody.” Their relationship has always had an old-fashioned charm — even on their first holiday away from the parents before they were married. Harry says: “We went to Torquay. Me, Frank Lampard and Roger Cross, who played for West Ham, Fulham and Brentford. Harry Redknapp with Eddie Presland and Tony Scott when he played for West Ham “We went with Sandra, her sister Pat and their friend Joy and we stayed in an old guest house, cheap as chips. “The girls stayed downstairs and the boys stayed upstairs. In them days, we were old school. But we didn’t know what to do!” Harry and Sandra married in 1967 at Barking Abbey church and went on to have two sons — former Liverpool midfielder Jamie, 45, and model Mark, 48. Harry’s dedication to marriage was inspired by his parents, Henry and Violet. Harry, an only child, says: “My mum and dad were married all their lives. “My dad went to the cemetery every day when my mum died. It was ridiculous, it was sad. I just couldn’t stop him.” Harry and wife Sandra have survived his heart attack in 2011 and the death of her sister Pam in 2008 Sandra has been by Harry’s side throughout his football highs. But there have also been tough times. During the 1990 World Cup in Italy, Harry was in a minibus crash that killed close pal Brian Tiler and three young Italians. Harry says: “That was a scary time in our lives, very difficult times. Four people got killed, it was a miracle I survived.” Harry also had heart surgery in 2011 and a cancer scare in June last year, while Sandra had to deal with the shock death of sister Pat, mum of ex-England star Frank Lampard Jnr, in 2008 through pneumonia. She was just 58.

He was cleared in 2012 but it still makes him angry thinking about it. Harry says wife Sandra doesn’t like the limelight and is happy being at home “All I would say about that is that should have never got to court, he says. “That was a scandal.” It was a scandal that put paid to any aspirations he might have had to manage his country. But Harry also turned down big job offers, primarily the Newcastle position in 2008, to stay close to Sandra. He says: “I don’t want to spend my life not seeing her.” [article-rail-section title=”most read in i’m a celebrity” posts_category=”0″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] After being in the background for so long, Sandra is now the centre of attention. So would he consider working with his wife on TV — like a new Richard and Judy? “I don’t know about that,” Harry laughs.“She likes everything quiet, it’s really not her style. She hates that this has all happened really. “She’s happy being at home. “She likes going out for dinner just the two of us, with the grandkids and the dogs. “She don’t want the publicity — but she’s stuck with it now.” GOT a story?

OAKLAND — Noni Session, a third-generation Oakland resident, returned after five years to the city where she was raised only to find it growing increasingly unrecognizable. Driving out of the Posey Tube from Alameda, she counted the encampments, which seemed to have exploded in number, under the freeways. Each one, it seemed, was now home to a handful of people with makeshift kitchens, furniture, and tents. It reminded her of the Great Depression and pictures of Hoovervilles she had seen in history books. Hoovervilles, which numbered in the hundreds across the country, were shanty towns named after President Herbert Hoover, who many blamed for the depression. “It felt like we’re living in the past and the future at the same time,” she said. “I thought (Hoovervilles) were a fictional representation that could never happen again, but I was looking at Hoovervilles with my own eyeballs.” It was 2011, and Oakland and the Bay Area were still reeling from the Great Recession. Session sat in one of the city’s new cafes, feeling powerless. That feeling was eventually channeled into years of political organizing, a bid for city council in 2016, and now, a radical approach to solving the housing crisis: collective ownership of land and buildings to keep them permanently affordable. Session is now the director of the East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative, or EB PREC, a nascent cooperative corporation that last week launched its first campaign to purchase a four-unit apartment building in North Oakland. While housing cooperatives have long worked to purchase individual properties and retain them as affordable housing stock, EB PREC is hoping its model can grow into a network of properties that can begin to effect lasting change. There are four types of ownership in the EB PREC model: community-owners, investor-owners, resident-owners and staff-owners. Community-owners shape the direction of the organization and serve as a tool for political organizing. Investors help the cooperative accumulate the money it needs to buy property and receive a 1.5 percent return on a 10-year, up to $1000 investment. Resident-owners have a lease-share in the property, which they sell back to the coop if they want to move. And, staff-owners act as the trustees of the organization. But how does it all work? Session spoke to this news organization about EB PREC’s vision for the East Bay. The conversation has been edited for clarity and length. Q: First, what is EB PREC? A: It’s a particular model of real estate acquisition based in community investment and organizing. It was conceived very slowly over the course of two years through a collaboration with the Sustainable Economies Law Center and the People of Color Sustainable Housing Network. The People of Color Sustainable Housing Network had formed from a rescue mission, that despite the boom in new residents and the expansion of diverse types of people coming to Oakland and the Bay Area, black and brown people were being excluded from these changes. Many of us weren’t being housed even in collective housing situations; we weren’t the candidates being chosen. So, black and brown people are being pushed out of the Bay Area at a disproportionate rate to other groups. The East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative formed into a cooperative corporation in January 2017. It seeks to serve first black, indigenous, people of color and allied, underserved communities. But, it’s a very layered concept, and it’s very unique. It’s never been done before in this form. Q: What makes it unique? A: We were trying to figure out a concept that couldn’t be corrupted, that could build wealth from different angles and that could be authentically controlled by community. So, we are an investment co-op. A hedge fund is an investment co-op. This is a way for people to divest their money from Wells Fargo and invest in their community and get a return at about the same rate one might get from their checking account. We are a housing co-op, where we create the conditions for people to live collectively and gain leadership skill sets, problem-solving skill sets, and property management skill sets. We are also a worker co-op. We are in solidarity with workers nationwide. And we are like a land trust in that our core covenant is that property never goes back onto the speculative market. It’s held in trust for the community as a community asset, and it can always be leveraged for another community asset. It’s a way of holding collective wealth for communities that have been dispossessed of individual wealth for generations. And, finally, we were also looking for a longer-term way to create a pathway to consistent political and civic activation. Land is the answer to all of that. It’s how America was formed. Land is the thing upon which all conflicts, all occupations and all identify hinges. Without land, people don’t have stable identity, they don’t have leverage with city leaders, and they don’t have a place or platform to organize and decide what their vision of the world should be. Q: So, on a practical, day-to-day level, what does that structure look like?  A: Each situation will be radically different according to the needs of the organizing community we’re working with. For the most part, we look for mixed-use properties. We had the potential of buying a property on 7th Street that had two units upstairs that could each house two tenants, or resident-owners; the potential to build a third floor with two more units; plus it had a commercial unit on the bottom. At the time, there was an Ethiopian restaurant looking to expand in West Oakland that had already been serving in Oakland and teaching healthy-eating classes. We would have been able to amplify the services of the people-of-color business by keeping the commercial rent low, and stabilize the rents of the resident-owners upstairs who would also be people of color serving and working in the East Bay. So, that’s one model. The model for the building we’re attempting to crowd-fund now is a four-unit building with three tenants in each unit. It has a south-facing roof, so we can put an investment project of solar panels on the roof so we can fulfill our mixed-use vision of always adding revenue streams to support the mission of the resident-owners themselves.
