UK: Indian-origin 'Chicken King' told off for sending biscuits to MPs 19.1.2018
London: Britain's Indian-origin 'Chicken King', Ranjit Singh Boparan, has been told off for sending boxes of biscuits to MPs investigating his company over a hygiene scandal. The House of Commons' Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, which had opened an investigation after an undercover media report revealed serious breaches at one of Ranjit Boparan's factories last year, wrote to the businessman to stress that the gifts were an "inappropriate gesture".

Movie: Darkest Hour Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Ronald Pickup, Stephen Dillane, and Joe Armstrong Director: Joe Wright Duration: 2 hours 5 minutes Critic's ratings: **** Story: Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) gave an iconic speech in House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom on 4 June 1940 that is popularly known as 'We Shall Fight on the Beaches.' The speech was inspired by the fighting spirit of the common British people at the time and Churchill fanned it furthermore with his oratory skills. The result was London survived the blitz and UK and the Allies won World War II. Darkest Hour is the dramatic build-up to that speech.

It's a certain twang in his voice when he pronounces words with the letter 'N' in it. Otherwise, for the entirety of the 2-hour-5-minute film, it's Oldman and his masterpiece of a performance that ...
