LONDON — Despite opposition from some shareholders — with 22 percent abstaining or voting against him — Marks and Spencer Group plc chairman Stuart Rose was elected executive chairman at the British retailer's annual meeting Wednesday.
Rose said he had endured a flurry of attacks, including a description of him as "the Robert Mugabe of retail."

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
