Outgoing Rugby Football Union chief executive Steve Brown has denied that that he is leaving a sinking ship following his sudden resignation after just 14 months in the job, but accepted that the £200m Professional Game Agreement that was signed with the Premiership clubs two years ago could come back to haunt the international game. The RFU revealed on Monday afternoon that they made a loss of £30.9m over the 2017/18 season, although officials at Twickenham are refusing to panic as that figure is offset a restructuring of Twickenham Experience Limited, the stadium’s hospitality, conference and events provision, to Compass PLC for £31.6m. In total, the RFU invested £107.7m pf its £172.4m revenue back into the sport, an increase of eight per cent, but there is no overlooking the fact that its annual income fell £12.5m due to hosting two tests fewer at Twickenham, resulting in an £8m ticket drop and £4.1m broadcast deficit.

While France might attract a huge number of people who come to these shores to put their feet up at the end of long and stressful careers, most foreigners who come here are actually of working age. Which means they need to find work. But perhaps unsurprisingly many of them find it difficult, indeed more difficult than foreigners do in other countries. A survey by InterNations global community, which interviewed 18,000 respondents around the world found that 55 percent of expats in France found it hard to apply for a job. That's compared to the average of 36 percent around the globe. There were other stats as well that revealed how foreigners found it hard to get work in France. For example 47 percent said they were happy with their career prospects in France compared to 55 percent globally. That score saw France ranked 52nd out of 68 countries for career prospects.

He was speaking as the firm prepares to float for £5billion on the London Stock Exchange next month in a huge boost for Britain as we get set to leave the EU. James Bond's favourite car maker is set to sell around a fifth of its shared to investors - after revenues for the company were up eight per cent last year to £445m. Mr Palmer told Radio 4 today he wasn't afraid of a No Deal Brexit, and the firm was "impervious" to those kinds of changes. He said: "If a a tariff barrier went in place it would even itself out, and we would probably benefit from a weaker pound." "The benefit of investing in Aston Martin is insulation from these macro-changes," he added. And to reassure any investors, he said … [Read more...] about Aston Martin boss vows Britain’s car trade will BENEFIT from No Deal Brexit and shrugs off scare warnings
