  • Thierry Henry lacking on-screen Va Va Voom

    Eight months into that giddily well-remunerated Sky Sports contract it is probably time, with all due fond expressions of respect and regret, to ask the obvious question. How has Thierry Henry, despite his obvious natural advantages of wit, charm, intelligence and supreme sporting pedigree, managed to transform himself into such a terribly unpopular – and indeed terrible – TV pundit? There are endless, ever-multiplying opportunities to be unhappy about football. Or – and this is the real growth area – to be unhappy about watching other people watch football, with punditry the high-spec modern day equivalent of being set in the village stocks.

    On December 13th, 2012, a news team from the US network NBC was kidnapped by armed men in northern Syria.

NBC chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel told afterwards that along the way one of the rebel group was killed by the kidnappers. The newsmen themselves were not physically ill-treated during five days in captivity, but they were constantly threatened with death and made to pose for a video squatting under an Islamic flag before a wall covered with slogans extolling the Assad regime.

  • Record loss for Tesco of €9bn | Irish Examiner

    Tesco yesterday revealed the cost of its spectacular decline, with an annual loss of £6.4bn (€9bn), one of the biggest in British corporate history, and warned investors there could be more pain to come. In Ireland, where Tesco recently ceded market leadership to SuperValu, like-for-like sales fell by 6.4% to €2.55bn. “We sought to draw a line under the past and rebuild from here,” said Dave Lewis, who has impressed investors with his decisive action since replacing sacked Tesco veteran Philip Clarke as CEO in September.
