#UK: Ant McPartlin has been fined for drink driving after a crash last month. The presenter apologised on his way out of court today saying he was ”ashamed and mortified”.

#US: Former FBI director James Comey’s much-anticipated interview pulled no punches in its description of Trump. He said the US President treats women ‘like meat’ and that he is ‘morally unfit for office‘.

#COFFEE: The CEO of Starbucks has apologised after two black men were arrested in a café while waiting for a friend.

PARTING SHOT

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the author behind the We Should All Be Feminists TED Talk is giving a talk in Dublin next month.

Sweden, one of the world’s leading lights in gender equality, has deemed her speech so important that a copy of the speech is given to every 16-year-old student in the country, with the hope that it will “work as a stepping stone for a discussion about gender equality and feminism”.
