This is really interesting. Second instance in a week of private equity wading into football, one of the least profitable investments around. What I don’t get is why the real prize - the EPL - would sign up for this. Or indeed fans. Via @FT https://www.ft.com/content/4dabc976-177d-11ea-9ee4-11f260415385?shareType=nongift

Even by India's horrific standards of violence against women and girls, this is something else. No country can thrive while treating its women and girls like this. http://toi.in/XeYE8Y83/a24gk via @timesofindia

Hmm. Especially after riot police entered a church and beat a protester - defying the idea of sanctuary - there has actually been open criticism. On one specific occasion we were reminded that even the Japanese did not enter churches during occupation. https://www.ft.com/content/360bc752-f6ea-11e9-a79c-bc9acae3b654

Braich said his rationale for investing in Yes Bank was simple: “I loved the logo and I had my people do the due diligence very deeply,” he said. “If it was called ‘No Bank,’ I wouldn’t have been interested.” Read more at: https://www.bloombergquint.com/business/the-puzzling-canadian-behind-a-bid-to-save-india-s-yes-bank

"How to Be a 1980s Chaebol Leader", complete with rising fortune, book (“Every Street is Paved With Gold”), escaping country while your company collapses under $75 bln, and a stint in jail. https://reut.rs/35915vN

Unclear why treating the UK as our own country is a bad thing. I studied, worked, paid taxes, volunteered, produced three British kids. Is that so awful? https://123twitter.com/thetimes/tweet/1203922486968147969

Breaking: Panel of foreign experts recruited to ensure the objectivity of an investigation into allegations of excessive force by Hong Kong police during recent protests said it was stepping down after their concerns about the probe went unresolved https://www.wsj.com/articles/foreign-panel-steps-down-from-probe-of-hong-kong-police-11576018800

Yes, some of it was a bad shale deal, but this sort of write down suggests the entire resources industry has some thinking to do. https://www.wsj.com/articles/chevron-facing-fossil-fuels-glut-takes-10-billion-charge-11576012579

Valid question from my mother in California today - is this bigger than the record fire there last year? Yes...How a mega fire spread toward Sydney https://graphics.reuters.com/AUSTRALIA-BUSHFIRES-SIZE%20/0100B4QG2FG/index.html via @Reuters

So BHP has stared down shareholders and stuck with the lobby groups, admittedly bringing forward future reviews. Now it will need to show that engagement from within can work. https://www.bhp.com/media-and-insights/news-releases/2019/12/bhp-releases-2019-industry-association-review#.XfGxX2V4Cyw.twitter

Amazing special report here, as impressive for its choice of target as it is for its reporting: “Since August, Refinitiv has blocked more than 200 stories about the Hong Kong protests plus numerous other Reuters articles that could cast Beijing in an unfavorable light.” https://123twitter.com/claradfmarques/tweet/1205271324605599745

Just extraordinary. Could be worst Labour result since 1935. Fourth defeat in a row. Bad news for a country that sorely needs a competent opposition. https://reut.rs/2RMh2nW

Bangkok Bank is taking control of Indonesia’s Permata  for about $2.7 billion. For Thailand’s third-largest lender by assets, a deal at near twice the target’s book value is a necessary gamble on faster growth.  @ClaraDFMarques  https://bit.ly/2LPKllE
