… a round up of the stories that got us talking this week


Clinton’s trump card

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail…An old adage it seems Donald Trump forgot ahead of this week’s first US Presidential Election Debate.

With more than five million tweets recorded during the live debate, and a global consensus that Hillary wiped the floor with him, it’s clear that Clinton’s trump card seemed to lie in the hands of her opponent’s arrogance – and ultimately his failure to prepare.


There is probably no bigger stage in the world than this and ‘winging it’ seems foolhardy of a man keen to be leader of the free world.

Roses’ fever hits Belfast

On the back of their sell-out homecoming tour last year, Ian Brown’s boys will be crossing the water to play in Belfast’s SSE Arena next summer. The honorary Manc among us – our Associate Director, Dawn – is particularly happy about this and has no doubt been straight on to Ticketmaster this morning making sure her tickets are in the bag!

As always, it’s great to see Belfast attracting big acts like this. We’ve an absolute wealth of musical talent here on our shores so this legendary 90s band will be in good company. Roll on the 13th June and in the meantime, we’ll be reminding ourselves why we love the Stone Roses.

Lord Sugar will see you now

The Apprentice returns to BBC One screens for the twelfth series next week and once again we’ll be treated to advisors Baroness Karren Brady and Claude Littner as they put 18 brand new candidates through their paces to secure Lord Sugar’s £250k investment in their business plan.

We’re in the middle of our own recruitment drive at the minute so we’ll be watching closely and getting some tips along the way – but don’t worry we wont be asking our candidates to flog any fish down Billingsgate Market.

If you think you have what it takes to be our new ‘Apprentice’ send your cv to by the 7th October.
