If you asked to borrow my car for the day and I said sure, but then moved into your house, helped myself to the food in your fridge and pleasured your wife, you'd probably think I was a bit of a douche. But, with annual repayment rates of 4,214%, payday loan companies are about as pleasant. In a sketch in the next episode of our BBC3 comedy series The Revolution Will be Televised (10pm, Wednesdays), my comedy partner Jolyon Rubinstein poses as a simpleton and visits a bunch of payday loan companies asking them for money, saying he needs it to pay back drug and gambling debts and does it matter that he's just been released from a mental asylum? Without exception, he was offered the option to apply for loans – one of £5,000 on the condition he pay back £11,398. Can't say fairer than that. We decided to do the sketch as last year I had worked undercover in one of these companies for my producer friend Rob Moore, who had been investigating them for a TV documentary. My … [Read more...] about Why are payday loan companies free to shaft the poor?
A coroner who heard how an 18-year-old man suffered a fatal allergic reaction after eating a Byron burger chain meal has warned that action is needed to avoid 'future deaths'.

Mr Carey had been celebrating his 18th birthday with his family and made staff aware of his allergies, but was not told the chicken was marinated in buttermilk, an inquest into his death heard in September.

Nicki Minaj was getting all the credit, with Twitter humming around the world in praise of her decision to spend thousands of dollars of her own money helping out impoverished American college students. But none of that would have happened without the chutzpah of CJ. It was 19 minutes after midnight on Sunday morning when CJ, a 21-year-old student working two jobs to pay her college fees, dropped her tweet. She had just seen a message from Minaj to her international fans – the rapper said she would pay their airfare from any country should they win a contest to spend time with her at the upcoming Billboard music awards in Las Vegas. It was all very well for Minaj to help out fans from around the world with plane tickets, CJ thought, but what about those struggling in the US, who couldn’t even afford to go to school? “Well you wanna pay for my tuition,” she tweeted back at the star. Six minutes later, Minaj replied. Sure, she said – as long as your grades … [Read more...] about Nicki Minaj offers to pay students’ tuition after fan asks for help on Twitter
HENRIKH MKHITARYAN believes Unai Emery's tactics at Arsenal hampered his attacking contributions to the side. The 30-year-old was shipped off to Roma on a season-long loan in August following a number of disappointing performances for the Gunners. Mkhitaryan joined the North London side from Manchester United in January 2018 in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez going in the opposite direction.

"I was starting as a winger, but had to build play with the defensive midfielder. It’s why I couldn’t contribute as many goals … [Read more...] about Mkhitaryan blasts Unai Emery as he blames Arsenal manager’s rigid tactics for his lack of goals and assists before loan
