EU not City dictates capital’s future

first_imgMonday 15 November 2010 9:16 pm whatsapp Share THERE is something magical about the Lord Mayor’s annual banquet at the Guildhall. One is surrounded by pomp and pageantry; all the guests are decked out in white tie and tails, and dozen upon dozen of Britain’s top business executives make the time to listen to the Prime Minister, the Lord Mayor, the Lord Chancellor and all the others. So it made sense, I suppose, for David Cameron to use his first speech to this august gathering to try and mend fences with the City and talk up Britain’s economy and place in the world.Yet it didn’t quite work. Everybody knows the UK retains a large economy and that London’s financial services industry remains huge. But anybody could have said that at any time during the past decade. Stating the obvious isn’t clever. The real point is that power is seeping away from the UK. For hundreds of years, the buck stopped with the people in the room last night, London-based merchants and politicians; increasingly, however, it is moving to European Union institutions and others who don’t have the UK’s best interests at heart. Take the looming Irish bailout. Under the European Financial Stabilisation Mechanism, Britain must stamp up for 13.6 per cent of any monies channelled to Ireland. This could cost UK taxpayers €8bn – more if Portugal and Greece also require funds. Or take the row over bonuses: the real power now lies in the hands of the Committee of European Banking Supervisors, not the FSA or even the government. The new EU rules will be published next month and come into effect on 1 January 2011. The new sheriffs in town include the European Banking Authority (London-based but a European body on which the UK will only have a tiny voice); the European Securities and Markets Authority in Paris; and the Occupational Pensions Authority in Frankfurt. Perhaps in future years, they too will be given starring roles at Guildhall banquets (my kind of nightmare). Private equity and hedge funds are now regulated from Brussels. We are also facing a review of the market in financial instruments directive. With the EU in charge, the people around me in the Guildhall last night have been downgraded to the role of lobbyists. Some claim that the EU must take control because Britain failed. It is true UK monetary, regulatory and fiscal policies were a disgrace; the Labour government paid the price for its incompetence. But that doesn’t justify handing power to unaccountable bureaucracies. European countries and Brussels itself failed even more miserably on every count. The single currency was one of the drivers of boom and bust; continental banks were destroyed in far greater numbers than UK institutions; European governments borrowed even more recklessly than Northern Rock. The real answer is to decentralise power, and make governing structures as local and accountable as possible. Some coordination is necessary, of course. But competition and experimentation work for companies; they should also be made to work for nations. If anything, London itself should gain more powers, just as City-states such as Singapore and Hong Kong govern themselves. We need a new localism in financial and economic regulation, just as we need it everywhere else, to allow fresh solutions to emerge. Top-down pan-European policies will only kill off our prosperity. Until we relearn this truth, the tragedy is that gatherings such as last night’s will progressively be robbed of their [email protected] More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest EU not City dictates capital’s future center_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndoHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemUndoZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionUndo KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

European lotteries establish alliance to pool liquidity

first_imgShared liquidity was also a key consideration, he added, noting that this would help the four lotteries target larger customer bases. However, he admitted that it would take some time before the first products developed through the venture went live.“Right now, we are working to integrate the companies across common platform and then introduce the different libraries so the games can be shared,” Eriksen said.It is hoped that the integration platform will be in place by the end of this year, while the joint venture will largely rely on the support services of the members at the outset whilst retaining a “lean” staff structure.Aside from Erikson, a chief technology officer and a head of commercial operations have also been hired from Norsk Tipping and Veikkaus respectively, although their appointments are yet to be publicised. The company’s headquarters will be in Hamar, Norway.The LEIA’s chairman, Veikkaus CEO Olli Sarekoski, added: “Consumer behaviour in the lottery industry is changing rapidly, which requires faster development and adaption from both the operators and suppliers.”The move towards shared liquidity by lottery operators in northern Europe comes after Portugal joined France and Spain in a shared poker liquidity network in May. Members of the new Lotteries Entertainment Innovation Alliance (LEIA), a joint venture between the national lotteries of Denmark, Finland, France and Norway, are open to welcoming other operators seeking shared liquidity opportunities, according to chief execuive Morten Eriksen.The venture has been established by Danske Lotteri Spil, La Française des Jeux, Norsk Tipping and Veikkaus, with each holding an equal stake. Through the project, the quartet aims to enhance their online product range and explore initiatives that can drive revenue growth and pool liquidity, with Eriksen, who joined Norsk Tipping as director of distribution in 2014, appointed to oversee the new entity.Eriksen told today (November 27) that spreading risk in an increasingly competitive marketplace was a primary reason for the timing of the launch.Despite having only just been publicised, the deal to establish the joint venture was signed on October 1.“This has been under discussion for a while, but the growth of digital has provided a lot of challenges for state lotteries,” Eriksen explained.“I think there is a future for alliances like this and we are open to bringing in more companies,” he continued. “Joining forces makes us more competitive from an innovation perspective – and it also shares cost and reduces risk.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter European lotteries establish alliance to pool liquidity Lotteries of Denmark, Finland, France and Norway set to launch integrated platform by end of year Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Lottery Strategycenter_img Lottery Email Address Regions: Europe 27th November 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Yesterday we had a data release showing that the UK economy shrank by 20.4% in the second quarter this year. As the first quarter had already seen negative growth, the two consecutive quarters technically means that we’re in a recession here in the UK. That’s potentially an understatement, given that back in the 2008/09 recession, we were seeing GDP shrinking by single-digit percentages. We’re now talking double-digits in a single quarter. With this in mind, what stocks can we look to in order to provide returns despite the poor outlook?Buy defensive in a recessionTraditionally, investors would now look to buy into defensive stocks. This is a broad term, but essentially refers to firms that operate in stable sectors that see limited correlation between demand and the broader economy. Usually this is down to the goods and services offered. For example, luxury goods makers and mid-market names tend not to perform well during a recession as demand falls significantly. Yet the stock of a cheap fashion retailer like Primark owner Associated British Foods could perform well. After all, demand for clothing still exists.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…You can differentiate between the pandemic in the first half of the year and the recession that’s now confirmed, of course. The two situations are very different. But it’s interesting that defensive stocks were a good both in the pandemic to hold for the long term and as we now move into the recession phase, they still are. Defensive stocks are still likely to do well.A defensive FTSE 100 stock I likeFirst up is Coca-Cola HBC AG (LSE: CCH). In my opinion, this is a classic defensive stock. During a recession, consumers cut down on expensive purchases, but Coke still happily in may fridges as it’s a mainstream drink. The broad range of appeal that the brand and its other labels like Fanta have, along with the reputation it has built over many decades, allows it to weather any economic storm. The firm itself is not the parent company (this is listed in the US) but it bottles the drinks giant’s products and distributes them in around 28 countries. Therefore the demand of Coke itself is closely correlated to company performance.I think now in particular is a good time to buy the stock given the recent trading update. The share price fell as revenue was reported to be down 14.7% in the first half of the year. This puts it down 22% from the start of the year. For investors wanting a defensive stock, buying one at a steep discount is perfect for the longer term.Remember, the main cause of the revenue hit was lockdown. It hampered operations and the ability of clients to buy the product. Going forward, the UK recession we are now in doesn’t currently involve a lockdown. I think Coca-Cola HBC should be able to improve performance as the lockdown problems from the first half of the year are eased.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.last_img read more

While plaudits rain down elsewhere, James Haskell’s role mustn’t be ignored

first_imgOn a side note, that lack of turnover-creating potential in the seven shirt becomes less important when you have the likes of Maro Itoje, Dan Cole and Billy Vunipola stealing ball around you.Sure, he’s been pinged for the odd neck roll or late tackle, but in no way has his play verged on being a discipline headache for Eddie Jones over the last seven weeks. There can be no doubt, however, that Haskell will again be pivotal as England go Grand Slam-hunting in Paris on Saturday evening.In his element: Haskell has been the consummate team-player in the last five weeksThe physical edge that Haskell brings to the seven shirt will be sorely tested and as skilled as players like Matt Kvesic and Will Fraser are, this is a game where brute strength will be paramount.Haskell will need to clear the likes of Bernard le Roux, Damien Chouly and Yoann Maestri out of the contact area quickly. We could debate France’s failings for quite a period of time, but these are not easy men to move.What Haskell has essentially shown over this Six Nations so far, is that he has the stereotypical skill set of a seven at attacking rucks, and that of a six when defending them. People will continue to throw the ‘six and a half’ jibes about but if he can deliver against France and help England to their first Grand Slam since 2003, he is undoubtedly the man to don the jersey in Australia this summer.Pooper await: Michael Hooper and David Pocock await Haskell and co in the summerEngland are moving in the right direction, but they will need to improve considerably if they are to be competitive against the Wallabies when they head Down Under. Key cog: James Haskell has been pivotal to England’s solidity in the back row With Billy Vunipola and Chris Robshaw receiving plaudits from all quarters, it is time to give James Haskell his credit for his role at No 7? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img If you don’t think Haskell is the right man to be charged with shutting down David Pocock and Michael Hooper in that series, give England’s games over these last two months another watch.Jones has been vocal about once again making England a frustrating and awkward team to play and it seems entirely fitting that a player as vexing as Haskell is rising to the fore under the Australian’s leadership. After all, rugby is not a popularity contest. By Alex ShawIt’s been a productive Six Nations so far for England.New head coach Eddie Jones has steered his side to the title with a round still to go – something which has never been done before in the six-team format – and has revitalised a group of players who looked particularly lacklustre at last year’s Rugby World Cup.Maro Itoje, the England’s new hero, has been receiving plaudits from all quarters since making his debut, the pack has rediscovered its edge and the back three look assured, hungry and a match for any in the world on their day.One person who has gone under the radar in England’s march to the title and a possible Grand Slam, however, is James Haskell. Following Chris Robshaw’s sensible move to the blindside, where he has excelled and enjoyed his fair share of praise, with Eddie Jones saying he has been ‘colossal’, Haskell has been charged with the unenviable job of manning England’s openside.In your face: James Haskell has been at the forefront of England’s defenceThere’s no shying away from the fact that Haskell is a divisive player in the opinion of England fans. Never short of bravado, the back rower exudes confidence and no little swagger which some can mistake for arrogance, but it’s actually built on the solid core skills which have seen him clock up 66 test caps, second only to Dylan Hartley’s 70 in the current squad.By his own admission, Haskell is not the ‘out-and-out No7’ that everyone seems to hanker after, but he’s a player that does the dirty work as well as any in the Northern Hemisphere, a task for which there is little acknowledgment or praise, simply because of the number of the back of his jersey.Robshaw’s work rate has been lauded at six but it seems unfashionable for a seven, who should supposedly be sitting back, waiting for the perfect moment to swoop, get over the ball, and turn ball over. It’s a complex argument that can be swung either way depending on your available personnel, but given England’s current pool of players, it’s a role that is given far more weight than it should.Voice of experience: Haskell has used all of his 66 caps to guide England’s youngstersHaskell’s 48 tackles are tied for the most in the team (along with the underrated George Kruis), his short carries around the fringes have kept England consistently on the front foot and his work at the breakdown has been top-drawer. He may not have stolen ball with the snaffling skills of David Pocock or Richie McCaw, but his work clearing out the ruck area and giving Ben Youngs and Danny Care quick and clean ball to work with has been as good as anyone’s in the championship.last_img read more

Located in the municipality of La Calera, nearby Bogotá city; the AR HOUSE was implanted into a sloping ground and a triangular shape plot. Nevertheless, this particular feature lets the house enjoy from the eastern mountain range, as the closest view, to the far view of the Sopó Valley. Save this picture!© Gabriel & Carlos CampuzanoThe main spaces of the program were placed in a longitudinal scheme with the purpose of link them with the farthest view. At the same time, the access floor has been bored in its centre with a courtyard, where a water surface takes place too. Through this external space, the social level and the roof are connected, in which is also possible to enjoy a 360-degree view of the surroundings, like a ship.  So, the courtyard becomes the core of the house, improving lighting, warming up the indoor spaces, bringing the sky to the ground by reflections on the water and finally, taking the outdoors inside of the built spaces. Save this picture!© Gabriel & Carlos CampuzanoFurthermore, the building form takes advantage of the topography. This condition allows locating below the social spaces and the access level, the secondary bedrooms, an office and a spa; connected directly with the private backyard in terms of use and views. Save this picture!© Gabriel & Carlos CampuzanoFrom the street, the house seems like one floor high volume.  Between the courtyard and the view of the private backyard, the social areas were organized in an open way.  The living, the dining area and the kitchen; are integrated in one space, generating transparency in all directions. Over the basement, a cube rest in a cantilever where the main bedroom and its private terrace take place. This cube was inserted to the interior of the longitudinal volume, forming the courtyard and the roof terrace bounders.Save this picture!© Gabriel & Carlos CampuzanoRegarding some climatic conditions, the predominant winds come from the southeast. However, these conditions change throughout the day. The fabric of the south façade made of a concrete frame, glass and a rusty steel latticework; protects the house of the predominant winds.  This also has privacy purposes; it reduces the view of the internal spaces from the closest neighbours and the access road. Likewise, the dug land was used to flatten the backyard and shape slopes that protect the house from the wind and the view from the outside.The green roof has been a main feature of the house as well; the principal idea of it is to be used as a thermal insulation, providing better internal conditions regarding internal temperatures. On the other hand, it is part of the landscape design. The monochromatic and austere materiality of the house, improve spatiality, lighting and relations between indoors and outdoors, which are  the protagonists.Save this picture!© Gabriel & Carlos CampuzanoSave this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessTaiyuan Southern Station West Plaza / AS.
