The New European bought by consortium including ex-BBC boss

Investors in anti-Brexit weekly include Mark Thompson and former Financial Times editor Lionel Barber

A consortium including the former New York Times chief executive Mark Thompson and the former Financial Times editor Lionel Barber has backed a management buyout of the New European, the anti-Brexit weekly founded in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum.

Thompson – also a former director general of the BBC – is perhaps the most prominent of the group supporting the buyout, led by the newspaper’s founder, Matt Kelly, alongside the Irish media executive Gavin O’Reilly.

Hungary v France: Euro 2020 – live!
Group F updates from the 2pm BST kick-off in BudapestEuro 2020 overview: tables, results and fixturesYou can email Rob with your thoughts on the game 12.35pm BST It was only 1-0, but the authority of France’s win against Germany was pretty ominous for those with hopes of winning Euro 2020. Right here, right now they look a class apart. If they Hungary today they will qualify for the last 16 with a game to spare, and have a good old laugh in the face of the Group of Death.Hungary lost their opening game 3-0 to Portugal, though that scoreline doesn’t tell the story of a game that was 0-0 after 83 minutes. They will have home advantage again today, with a 67,000 crowd in Budapest. That might unnerve France, but I wouldn’t bet on it. Continue reading...

Honey & Co’s 10 rules for foolproof barbecuing
For such a simple cooking technique, it’s astounding how many get the grill all wrong. Here are 10 tips for an easy day over the coalsIf we had one piece of advice for the novice griller, it’s simply not to fear the fire. So many of us think there is a mystery to cooking on a grill but, in fact, it is the opposite – cooking over live fire or hot coals is the simplest, most elemental form of cooking. We’ve been doing it a lot longer than we’ve been cooking on stoves, and it’s much simpler than using a smartphone or a spreadsheet. All you need is fuel (that’s charcoal) and oxygen (that’s air). You can use a fire starter, gas flame or make a little fire from kindling and paper; whatever your initial heat source, just put a mound of charcoal on top (heat always goes up), wait for the coals to heat and you are ready to cook. On our travels, we have picked up a few simple rules that’ll make your grilling life that much better.1 Take your time You don’t light up a grill to get a quick dinner on the table – the whole point is to slow things down and gather lovely people for a leisurely while. Make a day of it, or at least half. Continue reading...

The week in classical: Falstaff; Hallé; Leipzig BachFest; Dunster festival – review
Trademark high spirits and a genial Falstaff kick off Grange Park Opera’s summer season. Plus online treasures great and smallA defining feature of Grange Park Opera – not the only one, and not typical of opera companies – is a sense of humour. The Surrey-based festival treats its central endeavour – the work it makes on stage or, in this past year, on film too – with complete professionalism, but takes equal delight in playfulness around the edges. Often these unite, as in an inspired version of Ravel’s horological opera L’heure espagnole, filmed in, and spilling out of, a small clock shop in Kensington. A browse on the company’s website will give you a sense of their jaunty approach. It will also show you the volume of their achievements in a year of lockdown, keeping alive the talents of some 250 artists (mostly singers, including many top names, but instrumentalists and conductors too).With a mix of pizzazz and relief, not least at the fine weather, Grange Park’s 2021 season opened with Falstaff, with the star attraction of Bryn Terfel in the title role. Verdi’s final work, only his second comedy of more than two dozen operas, bursts with music of miraculous, witty genius, the orchestral writing restlessly inventive and fresh. With a libretto drawn from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor and the Henry IV plays, it’s unlike anything in Verdi’s output, in pace, style, structure. Yet in its lampooning and derision it sometimes hits hard and uncomfortably. Falstaff may be a self-preening idiot, but the merry wives who ridicule him, one of whom calls for a tax on fat people, are pretty shrewish too. The sudden turn-about ending, with its dizzy, hurtling fugue – “tutto il mondo è burla”, loosely translated as “all the world’s a joke” – can leave a sense of desolation, rather than redemption. Since this is a hallowed favourite of many big-hearted folk, I accept I wrestle with its difficulties alone, or in limited company. Continue reading...
