By way of some consolation, and it really is some little comfort, we thought we'd offer a reminder of what it was like for Leicester City to win at Arsenal. Remember, City have not won a league game against the Gunners in north London since 1973. That winless streak was extended on Wednesday night when City went down to a predictable 1-0 defeat, albeit in controversial circumstances. You have to go back to September 8, 1973, for City's last victory at Arsenal. Read more: City without a...

The guidance is that a crowded diary means there isn't time to rehearse. But I hear other forces were at play. The Queen wanted to be at Royal Ascot the rest of that week so wasn't about to throw away her betting slips and race back for the usual Wednesday state opening which could otherwise have happened on 21st June. The government wasn't mad keen on waiting until the next week and 30th June for the traditional Wednesday State Opening of Parliament because that would limit the amount of time there was to start work on Bills ahead of the Summer recess and look like they were getting on with the job. One source suggested it would also limit the options for an early, Summer Budget, something which was still in play as a possibility, even though the Chancellor said only in March that the country had been subjected to too many fiscal events in recent times and the government would be cutting back to an annual one in the autumn.

In the wake of Alabama and Mississippi's continued observance of Confederate Memorial Day , Trevor Noah made it clear he is definitely not on board with celebrating the controversial holiday. During Wednesday's episode of The Daily Show , the host denounced the day which pays homage to Confederate soldiers who lost their lives in the Civil War as fked up on so many levels. First of all, the Confederacy fought the Civil War to defend slavery. Why would you honor that?, he said. Secondly, what are black people supposed to do on this holiday? Noah went on to explain that he has trouble wrapping his head around the idea that honoring the Confederacy can be observed in a non-racist way. I never understand this argument, he said. People go: Hey, back then they didnt know what they were doing.

The film, Whitney: Can I Be Me , which premiered Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival, explores the singer's mysterious relationship with longtime best friend and assistant, asserting that the pair was much more than friends by the end.

Yau, one of the two activists arrested on Wednesday, tells TIME that she believes the charges amount to political persecution. There is no ground to charge unlawful assembly as we had the right to protest, and it was our duty to attend the meetings in the [Legislative Council], she says. Nathan Law, another co-founder of Demosist who was elected as Hong Kong's youngest-ever legislator, says: The protest originated from Beijing's move to undermine Hong Kong's rule of law, adding that these are absolutely political prosecutions. Last month, nine organizers of the 2014 mass pro-democracy protests that paralyzed the city for 79 days, were booked on charges relating to causing a public nuisance during the demonstrations, Reuters reports. The spate of arrests come as Hong Kong's deeply unpopular Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying reaches the end of his tenure.

interest rates next Wednesday but may lay the groundwork for an increase in June, possibly July. There seems to be more confidence in the US, even if there is a creeping concern over whether President Trump can deliver on some, all or any of his promises. Let's talk about Trump.

Seth Meyers has seemed to realize that his best line of attack on Donald Trump is to use the presidents own words against him. On Late Night , Meyers argued that almost every action Trump has taken during his first 100 days in office, there is a Trump tweet that argues against that actionat least when it was taken by President Barack Obama. It is at this point like a law of physics: For every Trump action, theres an equal and opposite Trump clip, Meyers said on his Wednesday show. Meyers happened upon this idea thanks to one particular issue that Trump had completely backtracked, according to Meyersexecutive orders. Particularly, the number of executive orders that Trump has signed during his relatively short tenure in the White House. The White House released a statement bragging that Trump will have signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days, which is ridiculous, Meyers said.
