Sunday review

Sunday, 7 May 2017, 9:18 pm

There weren't too many M&A scoops in the business sections this weekend but having worked for The Sunday Times, the Mail on Sunday and The Sunday Telegraph I know how some weeks it can be extremely tough digging out humdinger deal jackanories. They are a bit like buses - you wait for ages and then suddenly three come along in one go.

There were, though, few other bits and pieces that caught my in today's newspapers. I particularly enjoyed Oliver Shah's well-written piece in The Sunday Times magazine about Sir Philip Green, former owner of BHS, and Mike Ashley, founder of Sports Direct. Here is the link to Olly's piece in case you missed it:

I also learnt a couple of new things about the excellent Financial Times whilst catching up with the BBC's This Week programme, hosted by Andrew Neil, on iplayer. According to the newspaper's brilliant editor, Lionel Barber, the publication is NOT a pro "remain" (in the European Union) newspaper. And apparently chocolate croissants DON'T got well with a full English fry up! Click on the link below if you want to see for yourself.
