Think RTÉ is bad. Well, they are but the BBC are up there with them. They managed to devote zero coverage to one of the biggest marches to ever take place in London…

The ruler of Dubai today lost his court bid to keep secret his marital feud with his youngest wife who ran away to London.

The Appeal Court ruled that the world should know what a judge has concluded about Sheikh Maktoum and Princess Haya’s High Court wrangle, which has been going on since she fled Dubai last year.

Princess Haya, wearing a lilac dress suit, was in the Appeal Court in London to hear the verdict, arriving with lawyer Baroness Fiona Shackleton.

But despite the ruling, the details of the case remain private because the billionaire sheikh – a friend of the Queen – now has the option of taking his appeal to the Supreme Court, to ask the highest judges in the land to keep the case under wraps.

Free tomorrow?

In London?

Via The Big Issue:

Homeless people have been encouraged to attend the Tate Modern’s most accessible concert yet. The free 12-hour concert will take place at the venue on London’s South Bank at 8pm.

The show will feature British composer Gavin Bryars’ 1975 piece Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet.

People who have been affected by homelessness will perform alongside professional musicians from the chamber orchestra of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

The Academy has been working with homeless people for roughly 20 years, but have never before orchestrated an event which involves those affected by homelessness so closely.

In fairness.
