Angela Merkel meets German president as coalition talks fail

German chancellor has meeting with Frank-Walter Steinmeier as country faces worst political crisis in decades

Angela Merkel is in talks with the German president after the collapse of coalition talks pushed the country into its worst political crisis in decades.

The pro-business Free Democratic party (FDP) walked out of marathon negotiations shortly before midnight on Sunday, with its leader, Christian Lindner, saying there was no “common basis of trust” between the FDP, Merkel’s centre-right bloc and the Greens. It was “better not to govern than to govern badly”, he added.

The Rake's Progress review – new company makes Stravinsky sing in stylish staging

Wilton’s Music Hall, London
OperaGlass Works’ production of the Hogarth-inspired tale is direct and inventive, with an impressive cast relishing every arch, ironic word

If ever an opera belonged in Wilton’s Music Hall it is The Rake’s Progress. Stravinsky’s Hogarth-inspired work, in which the Devil draws lazy Tom Rakewell to the capital and the word “London” is rarely sung without a shudder of distrust, is right at home in this East End alleyway theatre, whose peeling layers of balcony stucco seem to reflect the way Stravinsky plundered previous centuries for his musical score.

It has been brought here by OperaGlass Works, the newest in a wave of tiny but ambitious outfits filling the gaps left by cut-down programming at the big opera companies. Corners have not been cut here. With a list of supporters that reads like a Who’s Who of the theatre world, Selina Cadell and Eliza Thompson have co-produced a staging that uses the limited space beautifully, moralising from under a delicately raised eyebrow.

Eddie Jones’ marginal gains show value of keeping man in the middle on side | Andy Bull

England coach’s pre-match charm offensive towards referee Ben O’Keeffe looks a canny move after five tight decisions against Australia favour his side

An hour after the match, Eddie Jones snapped. Four questions into his press conference, Jones was asked how he felt about the marginal calls made by the referee, Ben O’Keeffe, and whether he felt England had been lucky to get the better of them. It was a fair question, but it set off Jones’s hair-trigger temper. “Why do we have a referee? Why do we have TMOs? I don’t understand the question,” Jones said. “How were we lucky? Ten replays of the video and they make a decision. This is the best referee in the world for today, they have the best guys doing the TMO, and you’re saying we’re lucky because the decisions went our way. Sorry, sorry, sorry. I’m sorry we’re lucky.”

Jones’s acidic answer curdled the mood of the room. He is, they say, a hard man to work with, as prickly as a cactus, and he has a habit of picking on journalists in public. Since England are winning, he could rightly argue that it doesn’t matter a damn, and so long as they carry on that way it won’t cost him anything but amity. If he ever finds himself in need of a little goodwill, however, he may regret the way he is squandering some of it now. As the saying goes, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Which Jones knows – just look at the way he buttered up O’Keeffe before and after Saturday’s match.

Enjoy responsibly: Gordon Ramsay under fire for Korean beer ad

‘Bloody fresh,’ said the chef as he downed a glass of Cass, but critics say he is endorsing ‘maybe the worst beer in the world’

Gordon Ramsay routinely berates contestants – often in the most colourful terms – on his television shows for their poor sense of taste.

But this week it is the celebrity chef’s own taste buds that are being called into question after he appeared in a TV advert promoting a South Korean beer that can politely be described as bland.
