    UPDATE 3-British election campaign kicks off on no-Brexit day

    On the day Britain was supposed to have left the European Union, voters instead faced the start of an election campaign, with opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn pledging to overthrow a "rigged system" he said was run by billionaires and tax dodgers. After failing to deliver Brexit by the Oct. 31 deadline, Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the Dec. 12 election to break what he cast as a political paralysis that had thwarted Britain's departure and undermined confidence in the economy.

    UPDATE 1-Sports Direct picks RSM UK Group as auditor

    Mike Ashley's retail group Sports Direct International said on Wednesday it had appointed RSM UK Group as its auditors, after Grant Thornton abruptly quit earlier this year. The company had said in August that Grant Thornton, the group's auditor since 2007, would not seek reappointment at Sport Direct's annual shareholders' meeting following a review of its client portfolio. The British sporting goods retailer had said discussions with other members of the "Big Four" accounting firms had thrown up barriers, including potential conflicts of interest and in the case of PwC a reluctance to engage with Sports Direct.

    The company had said in August that Grant Thornton, the group's auditor since 2007, would not seek reappointment at Sport Direct's annual shareholders' meeting following a review of its client portfolio. The British sporting goods retailer had said discussions with other members of the "Big Four" accounting firms had thrown up barriers, including potential conflicts of interest and in the case of PwC a reluctance to engage with Sports Direct. Sports Direct's results were delayed in July after it received an 11th-hour 674 million euro tax bill from Belgian authorities that had to be assessed by Grant Thornton before it could sign off on the numbers.

    Sports Direct drops bid for Goals Soccer after 'limited' support from Goals' board

    Sports Direct, also Goals' largest shareholder, made a 5-pence-a share offer for the five-a-side football pitch operator last month, which had then valued the company's equity at about £3.8 million. The bid came just a few weeks after Goals said it will delist its shares as an investigation into accounting issues uncovered improper behaviour going back almost a decade. "Sports Direct had only limited and fitful access and cooperation from the board of Goals to support Sports Direct's possible offer," the sportswear retailer said late on Monday.

    Britain's John Lewis withholds service payments to landlords

    British department stores group John Lewis has told shopping centre landlords it will withhold 20% of this quarter's service charge as it seeks to cut costs, it said on Friday. John Lewis is part of the employee-owned John Lewis Partnership, which said on Tuesday it was seeking to save 100 million pounds ($123 million) through a major management restructuring. John Lewis said these charges had risen regularly and landlords had not cooperated in trying to reduce costs.

    Sports Direct says JD Sports probe could have impact for major brands

    British sporting goods retailer Sports Direct said on Friday an antitrust investigation into rival JD Sports Fashion's takeover of Footasylum could have implications for the sector's major players, particularly their relationships with "must-have" brands. In July the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) launched an investigation into JD Sports Fashion's completed 90 million pound acquisition of smaller rival Footasylum. The regulator said on Thursday it planned to refer the deal to a deeper phase 2 investigation after finding it could lead to a worse deal for customers due to higher prices, poorer choice in stores or reductions in service quality.

    Sports Direct's Ashley re-elected to board despite protest

    Mike Ashley, the founder and chief executive of Sports Direct International , was re-elected to the British sporting goods retailer's board on Wednesday, though nearly a quarter of independent shareholders voted against him.

Ashley owns 62.7% of the company, according to Refinitiv data, making his re-election inevitable.
