Chlorinated chicken may be good enough for the Americans, it is implied, but why should the British have to accept such barbarities as the price of a free trade deal with Donald Trump’s America? Certainly the Environment Secretary, Michael Gove, who is also the minister in charge of food, doesn’t seem to think it is a price worth paying. Last week he issued some particularly pointed warnings about food standards, and why the British consumer and farmer is not about to be asked to abandon animal welfare, food safety or, indeed, taste and nutritional value for the sake of economics.
Chelsea are confident they will make three to four more transfers before the window closes at the end of next month, but Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk won't be one of them. Conte spoke at the weekend about the need for 'many more' signings if Chelsea are to compete on all fronts in the forthcoming season. Conte reiterated that point a few days ago, admitting Chelsea are in danger of lacking the tools to compete with the likes of Manchester City, who have now spent £230m on new personnel during the close season.
The Government has refused to rule out lifting the ban on chlorinated chicken as part of a future US-UK trade deal after Brexit. The American Farming Association is adamant that any deal must include agriculture, meaning chlorine washed chickens, hormone-fed beef and genetically modified crops could be exported to the UK. International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, who is in the US to prepare the ground for a future trade deal, is reportedly open to agreeing to such products - which are banned by the EU - being imported to the UK in order to secure an agreement.
Earlier this year, Forbes named McGregor as the world’s 24th highest-paid athlete, thanks to two huge pay-per-view (PPV) successes at UFC 202 and 205, as well as a series of lucrative sponsorships and endorsements.

"The BBC is being unfairly attacked: it has to pay market rates for top talent." "The BBC doesn't pay women enough." Logically, those two statements cannot both be true. The publication of the salaries of BBC presenters could easily provoke, as the Corporation's defenders would see it, a populist backlash.
Director Luc Besson has tipped Cara Delevingne for an Academy Award as he claimed that the world famous model is really a "natural born actress".

Putting journalists on trial for doing their job, for informing the public or conveying opinion, is never acceptable. Like the canary in the mine, journalists can serve as an early alert to the erosion of the rights of every citizen. Where media freedom is curtailed other freedoms invariably follow.
It’s known as being the go-to tool for clumsy doodles and childlike scribbles, but it turns out Microsoft Paint can actually be used to create incredible works of art. The internet went into mourning on Monday as news spread that the programme was being discontinued. But today Microsoft confirmed that it will continue to offer Paint through the Windows Store – though it won’t included on Windows 10 by default. This will be music to the ears of US illustrator Pat Hines, who uses the programme for his artistic creations. He has used the software to create beautiful illustrations for an e-book, as well as producing intricate portraits and incredibly detailed landscape drawings. Pat says he uses the old-school programme because he ‘sucks’ at using Adobe Photoshop. But that doesn’t mean his method is easy. He told the BBC: ‘I wouldn’t say it’s easy, it definitely takes quite a while. It could take upwards of 20 hours for just one piece.’ These are some of his astonishing creations.

"Well you don't look disabled," said the toilet guard lady. We were at a Belgian motorway service area that had only one disabled loo. I'd opened the door, but not quickly enough. The toilet guard, abandoning her saucer of 50-cent coins, swooped. I showed her my Ileostomy association travel certificate; she stared at it then at me before belligerently pulling the door shut. My wife said, "Try the Disability Rights card," I did, it has my photo, looks official and I was allowed to enter. ...
Russia says it has deployed military police to monitor two so-called “safe zones” being established in Syria. Russian defence ministry spokesman, Leiutenent General Sergei Rudskoi, told journalists – Russian forces had set up checkpoints in Eastern Ghouta and around a zone in the south-west. “To ensure the cessation of fighting, the military police of the Russian Federation on July 21 and 22, deployed two checkpoints and 10 observation posts along the agreed sections of the contact line in the south-west zone of de-escalation,” he said. Syrian warplanes have carried out a number of air strikes in rebel-held Eastern Ghouta in the past few days. Moscow plans to create four de-escalation zones in total. The zones were agreed with Turkey and Iran but rebel groups have not formally signed up the agreement.
