По случаю назначения Бориса Джонсона министром иностранных дел Великобритании BBC от души  по нему прошлась:

Boris Johnson: How Britain's new foreign secretary has insulted the world

The man who will be representing Britain's interests abroad is Boris Johnson. Yes, that Boris Johnson, the tousle-haired, barrel-bellied engineer of the UK's exit from the EU.

More than 46.5 million people voted in the referendum on 23 June, which resulted in the UK voting by 51.9% to 49.1% to withdraw from the EU.

Понятно, что ВВС не понравилось количество проголосовавших за "остаться", но 101% выглядит как-то не очень.

Анжелина Джоли будет преподавать в Лондонской школе экономики в качестве приглашенного профессора. Курс на тему сексуального насилия в зонах конфликтов.

Hollywood actress  Angelina Jolie is to join the London School of Economics as a visiting professor on a new masters course.

British Airways has compensated a passenger who was "humiliated' over its policy of not allowing single male flyers to sit next to solo child travellers on its planes.

Mr Fischer was on a flight from London back to his home in Luxembourg on 20 April 2009 when his pregnant wife Stephanie asked him to swap seats so she could sit next to the window. 


 Я, видимо, все-таки переоцениваю свое знание английского  - imho,  single male не может иметь pregnant wife. Но ведь у BBC и British Airways английский родной. Прям не знаю, что и думать.
