  • Jurgen Klopp: Manchester United’s Transfer Policy is Wrong

    Manchester United’s £100 million ($132 million) bid for Paul Pogba goes against what football is all about, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. Klopp believes £100 million is too much to spend on a single player. “If you bring one player in for £100 million and he gets injured, then it all goes through the chimney,” Klopp said.

  • Ryanair To Make Parents Pay For Reserved Seats

    Ryanair has announced plans to make it mandatory for adults travelling with children under 12 to buy reserved seating. The low-cost carrier says the change, which will come into force from 1 September, is to prevent young families from being split up on busy planes and delaying departures. This was causing boarding issues as crews attempted to re-seat customers with young families, not least because Ryanair's flights this summer are said to be running at 94% capacity.

  • Euro zone economic growth slows in quarter before Brexit

    Economic growth in the euro zone slowed in the second quarter as uncertainty before the British vote to leave the European Union swirled, data showed on Friday, and economists said it could be a sign of future weaker growth. A slowdown was expected after the strong euro zone growth in the first three months of the year, but it may have been compounded by the uncertainty preceding the 23 June British referendum. Although first confidence data after Brexit showed unexpected optimism in the euro zone, the economic impact of Britain's decision to leave the union may be felt later.

  • Naked Attraction: How low can this Channel 4 dating show go

    We’d barely met host Anna Richardson (the only one who didn’t get her kit off, having flatly refused) and the first contestant, 32-year-old Aina, before the screens in front of them shot up and revealed six specimens of naked manhood from the waist down. Not much of the conversation that followed focused on feet, knees or thighs – and that was about the size of it.

Nudity on television has come a long way since, say, the furore over Patrick Malahide’s bobbing bottom in The Singing Detective 30 years ago. Current drama series such
