As Yahya Jammeh flies out of The Gambia in an chartered aircraft, the poverty-stricken nation looks forward to an improving economy and a a fairer division of the country's wealth. While no one is suggesting Abacha levels of money have been expatriated, there will be those who will want to ensure that there has not been large-scale plunder. But will a deal with the UN, the The United Nations, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU) given him and his family and associates a free pass? Not entirely and FCROs should be on the lookout for money, including that moving in a direction that might not be expected.

It's time for grandparents to remember when they had to recite their "times tables" at infants' school. And guess what, while those around you have lost their brains and reach for calculators for the simplest tasks, you are still able to do multiplication in your head, mostly by just remembering that one number times another equals a third.

Use these tables to help your grand-kids, because all too often modern schooling methods don't.

It's taken Theresa May months to pop her head up and make clear statements about the UK's exit strategy for separation from the EU. There have been hints, partial statements, but there have been no clear policy statements or expressions of exactly what the plan is. This week, she changed that.

And she demonstrated that, at last, she "gets it" so far as the LEAVE vote is concerned.

In this first of a series of highlights from the speech, we explain, with comments, where, on the May plan, the UK, the EU and much of the rest of the world is going.

The junk journalism that masquerades as content of legitimate interest but plays to the lowest common denominator and lurks at the bottom of the page to steal the time employers are paying for is becoming a major plague. It's time to call a halt to this odious practice which actively undermines the credibility of the news sites it so often appears on.

While it is always dangerous to base any legal analysis on general media reports, media are reporting a case which provides sufficient fact for a discussion of the principles involved. The case involves a member of staff at a branch of Tesco in Ireland who removed product from the premises and was dismissed but has been awarded substantial damages for unfair dismissal.

The group of nations that has been searching the oceans for signs of the lost Boeing 777 that was Malaysian Airlines MH370 say that they have taken all reasonable steps to locate the aircraft and have failed to find any signs of the crash site. There is no doubt that the aircraft has been lost, and little doubt over which ocean it was lost in. But that's all that can be said with any confidence, except that there has been almost no question raised over whether the aircraft itself might have had a fault.
