Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor re-

has been hailed a hero after saving a Deliv-
eroo cyclist from being mugged. The actor
was travelling in an Uber taxi on Maryle-

out of the car to scare them off. Thanks to
him, the cyclist, who had been hit over the
head with a wine bottle, suffered no further
injuries. The story appeared in newspapers
worldwide, and Deliveroo thanked Cum-

Nearly 70 % of natural wine bottles produced in

France are exported abroad.



The market for natural wine is expanding
Natural wine differs slightly from its organic counterpart; it is produced without any chemical products throughout the process,
yet it does not have official certification. Nevertheless, it is becoming an increasingly popular feature of restaurants in London. In
France, it represents less than 1% of production, but it is being talked about more and more. Is this a passing trend or
revolutionary change in the way wine is made? Journalist Stephen Buranyi leads the enquiry.

9. France has long been the centre of the wine
world, but until the mid-20th century most
vineyards were small and worked mainly by
hand. In the eyes of natural winemakers, the
rot began in the decades after the second
world war, as French vineyards modernised
and the industry grew into a global eco-
nomic behemoth. 

10. By the early 1990s France was exporting

more than $4bn worth of wine a year – more
than twice as much as Italy, and more than
10 times as much as its new competition from
the US, Australia and all of South America.
And when it came to style, everyone still
followed the French. Today, even the cheapest
red wine found in the US or Britain is in some
ways a tribute to that victory, having likely
been soaked with toasted wood chips to ap-
proximate the vanilla and spice aromas of a
French barrel.

(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)
(ref. to the 1986 song by the American group the Beastie boys)
In May, a heavy-handed police action and subsequent closure of popular clubs in Tbilisi
resulted in a strong and mobilised response by Georgia’s young people. The
demonstrations, held two days before the opening of parliament, turned into rave
parties. Nearly thirty years after independence, it seems young Georgians have
decided to take a big step towards liberalisation, forcing the country to put its somber
soviet past behind it.

The Georgian
The Georgian March is an
ultranationalist group and political
party in Georgia. The group, formed
two years ago, is known for its loud
xenophobic, anti-immigration and
homophobic demonstrations. It is led
by Sandro Bregadze, who compares it
to the “Front National” in France and
“Alternative for Germany”. In March,
six members of the group attacked
TV journalists from the channel
Rustavi-2 because they were unhappy
with a joke made by a TV anchor
about Jesus Christ.

and anti-establishment M5S, now in charge of labour and welfare, and Matteo
Salvini, head of the right-wing League, now in charge of the interior ministry,
have given details about the strategies they are going to adopt. Salvini vowed to
massively expel migrants from the country, while Di Maio said his priority was
to set up employment centers to guarantee a monthly income to jobless people.

The difficulties of being a mother in Charlize Theron's new film, Tully
The film Tully (in cinemas from 27 June) is the latest collaboration of director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody,
following the success of Juno and Young Adult. South African actress Charlize Theron plays Marlo, exhausted mother of two who
has just given birth to her third child and decides, against her better judgement, to employ a night nurse named Tully. Interview.

T wo years ago, screenwriter Diablo

Cody was in the middle of trying to
write “a very big, commercial, four-quadrant
movie” when she gave birth to her third child.
After her first two kids, she had gotten back
in the groove of work, but this time, shattered
by exhaustion, she felt herself floundering
both as a writer and as a parent. Cody, 39, had
always been dismissive of the idea of hiring
a night nanny, thinking, she says, “the least
I can do is wake up with my baby.” But this
time she decided to enlist someone to help

she says. “We can deal with an unlikable

proved off-putting to many viewers — failed

In this picture, an elephant, representing the Republican Party, is delighted by the number of jobs created by
the American president Donald Trump, while a donkey, emblem of the Democratic Party, says sarcastically
that this number could actually amount to presidential pardons. This is a reference to the May employment
report, which showed that 223,000 new jobs were added in the United States that month, making the
unemployment rate fall to 3.8 percent — an 18-year record. It also refers to the numerous pardons that Donald
Trump has issued since he was elected, which has raised questions about his use of the presidential pardon
power. The American president also tweeted that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself in the Russia
investigation led by Robert Mueller (adding that this wouldn’t be necessary because he had done nothing
wrong). Experts and law scholars are divided on the statement, some saying that nothing in the Constitution
prevents him from pardoning himself, others declaring that a president can’t do that, under the principle that
