Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Brief Organisers have pulled the plug on a forthcoming Kylie Minogue gig in Zagreb after complaints by the concert sponsor's employees.

The axe fell not as a result - sadly - of pure good taste, but rather after enraged Croatian Telecom workers took to the streets to protest about the telco piling money into the warbling Aussie's appearance. The company planned the gig to celebrate a rebranding, but has recently announced job cuts. Unions felt that the cash would be better spent on their members, rather than the world's most famous arse.

Croatian Telecoms supremo Ivica Mudrinic told local press: "We wanted Kylie to perform but it won't happen because of protests by unions. At this stage the concert would be a provocation." ®
