General Election 2015: Here are the Labour party’s five pledges

first_imgEd Miliband has revealed five electoral pledges with which the Labour party will fight the general election in May.The party will be focusing on cementing the economy recovery, ensuring that everyone can benefit from it, improving NHS and immigration policy, as well as improving the prospects of young people. At a Birmingham rally he said: “Today we set out how we can replace a failed, tired government for the few with a government that is truly for all the people of Britain.””I do not simply say that we should judge our nation’s success by the success of working people. I say that only by working people succeeding can we succeed as a country.””And it is an idea embodied in our pledges, written through each like a stick of rock.”This is now the fifth time Labour has used a pledge card to better communicate party policy to the general public. The method was central to Labour’s campaign during the 1997 general election led by Tony Blair. EconomyLabour said it would balance the books and cut the deficit during its term in parliament.Living StandardsThe party will freeze energy bills until 2017, ban zero-hours contracts and increase the minimum wage to £8 per hour in order to raise living standards.NHSMiliband wants to hire 20,000 more nurses and 8,000 more family doctors, guarantee GP appointments within 48 hours, and cancer tests within one week.ImmigrationHe also vowed to change immigration policy by stopping new arrivals from claiming benefits for at least two years, and banning exploitative pay rates.Young peopleLabour will offer young people lower tuition fees at £6,000 a year, an apprenticeship for every school-leaver with basic grades, smaller class sizes in infant schools. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Jessica Morris General Election 2015: Here are the Labour party’s five pledges Tags: NULL Sharecenter_img Saturday 14 March 2015 9:10 am More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealth Gut BoostRandy Jackson: This 3 Minute Routine Transformed My HealthHealth Gut BoostMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyGundry MD Bio Complete 3 SupplementTop Surgeon: This Simple Trick Empties Your Bowels Every Morning (Almost Immediately)Gundry MD Bio Complete 3 Supplement last_img read more

Brexit News / ‘Passport to Kent’ scrapped as delays fade thanks to ‘prepared’ hauliers

first_img By Alex Whiteman, Brexit reporter 20/04/2021 Post-Brexit traffic management measures on roads to Dover have been stood down, with the controversial Kent Access Permit (KAP) the first to go, amid claims of improved trade and minimal disruption.The Department for Transport (DfT) said the KAP was no longer required and the moveable barrier on the M20 has been removed, as “delays have been prevented thanks to hauliers arriving at the border prepared”.It added: “Industry compliance with the KAP has been consistently high, tracking at more than 80% since the middle of January for non-GB hauliers.“Removing the KAP on 20 April will mean less paperwork for hauliers, making it quicker and easier to cross the border, further supporting the already smooth flow of goods from the UK into Europe.”Heidi Skinner, policy manager for the South at Logistics UK, said: “The government’s decision to abolish the Kent Access Permit is a reflection of the hard work undertaken by logistics businesses across the supply chain to ensure operations are border ready before hauliers embark on travel to the Channel ports.“The Check an HGV service has been an effective tool in guiding businesses to the paperwork needed to cross the border.“Today’s news is positive for the industry and, in conjunction with the deactivation of the M20 Operation Brock contraflow, will support the smooth flow of trade to and from the UK.“Logistics UK is now urging government and industry to ensure the entire supply chain is ready for the introduction of further EU-UK border controls from 1 January 2022 to keep trade flowing freely in the months and years to come.”Despite industry support for the move, the government failed to properly inform the system’s users of its demise in advance; one haulier told The Loadstar that the first they knew about it was when one of their operators logged in to request permits this morning, adding: “And then we found the message [saying the scheme had been scrapped].”According to the DfT, the decision was made in response to freight volumes between the EU and UK “continuing to operate at normal levels”, citing data from the Office of National Statistics that showed a 46% increase in EU exports in February compared with January.But one source questioned the relevance of comparing February with January, claiming the former was “some way off the mark”, compared with February 2020 and February 2019.In fact, EU exports for February were down 12.5% on 2020, with rest-of-the-world exports down 8.6%, suggesting that while the pandemic is driving the bulk of trade decline, Brexit is compounding the issue for the UK. © Martinlee58 last_img read more

Military Drivers Involved in Car Theft

first_img Facebook Twitter News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By Im Jeong Jin – 2011.03.08 5:39pm SHARE North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again AvatarIm Jeong Jin center_img News NewsEconomy Military Drivers Involved in Car Theft A spate of car thefts over the last few months in Chongjin, North Hamkyung Province is said to have been done by military drivers trying to cling onto their posts, according to a source. The source said some of the thieves were apprehended in an intensive crackdown on car theft carried out from late January to early February by the People’s Safety Ministry (PSM), and subsequently revealed the details. According to the source, the drivers, in collusion with civilians, stole “servi-cha”, or service cars, and sold the parts, apparently in order to purchase gas and other things they needed to keep their own vehicles running.Service cars are vans, trucks or buses used to transport people and cargo in lieu of an adequate public transport system. Even though the PSM in the province apparently launched an investigation into the case, it was apparently unsuccessful because base Party cadres protected the drivers, so now the issue has developed into a tug of war between the military and the provincial PSM. Speaking on the 7th, the source explained, “The drivers, who are part of a platoon which manages private cars for cadres under the 45th Division of the 9th Corps, which is stationed in Chongjin, hid the stolen cars in a parking lot on-base and sold the parts.” He explained, “Agents from the Criminal Investigations Section of the PSM tried to access the corps, but 9th Corps cadres including the political commissar and the base National Security Agency head instructed soldiers not to allow them to get onto the base under any circumstances.”One of the arrested men apparently admitted, “We utilized the fact that the security forces cannot search military bases.”According to the source, their dire situation drove the drivers to car theft. He said, “An official’s cars projects his pride, so if a driver cannot run his car properly even on condition of having no gas or parts, it is difficult to hold on to that position.” “The authorities used to turn a blind eye to the military earning money for fuel by supporting foreign currency earning companies or individuals by helping them carry their cargo. However, the military police’s crackdown even on military vehicles has recently been reinforced, so drivers found themselves in that difficult situation,” he concluded.

K-water: North Used 1.14m Tons of KIC Water

first_img There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest K-water: North Used 1.14m Tons of KIC Water RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR It has been confirmed that in approximately 70 days following the shutdown of the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) in April this year, North Korea used a further 1.14 million tons of water. South Korea’s public water utility, K-water made the figures public today as part of a regular National Assembly audit of the incumbent administration. Democratic Party lawmaker Park Gi Chun, citing the findings of a K-water report into water use, stated, “In accordance with K-water’s crisis response manual, they shut off the water supply on April 29th. However, thereafter North Korea removed the seal without notice and began to use the water.”“They used an average of 16,300 tons per day,” Park went on, “and over 70 days they used 1,141,000 tons.”Evidence of the unauthorized usage was revealed when K-water engineers next visited the KIC on July 9th to check filtration and drainage facilities and prepare for impending inter-Korean working-level meetings.It has been pointed out that the administration’s own statements contradict the K-water report. Notably, the Ministry of Unification previously said that it did not take steps to shut off water and electricity supplies to the KIC. On May 6th, the week after K-water says it shut off the supply, Minister of Unification Ryoo Kihl Jae told the National Assembly Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee, “The government has yet to make a decision regarding water and power supplies to the Kaesong Complex.” News News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China By Daily NK – 2013.10.24 7:48pm center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Manager Monitor: Looking to the U.S. for performance

Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media A greater emphasis on foreign content was part of the manager transition, something that Rohit Sehgal, who has stepped back to manage hedge funds after 14 years as this fund’s lead manager, had already started. Foreign content accounts for 47% of the fund, of which the bulk is invested in the U.S. “We didn’t change things thematically, nor did we change the sector allocation. One big change was a strategic allocation to the U.S.” says Lane, adding that about 20% of the fund is in units of Dynamic Power American Growth and another 27% in individual U.S. and international holdings. Turning to Canada, Lane argues that resources and so-called interest-sensitive stocks have had their day. “We believe that we are at the start of secular bear markets in government bonds and commodities— and at the start of a secular bull market in equities, led by the U.S.” Lane is focusing on Canadian companies that have significant exposure to non-Canadian revenues and benefit from a weak dollar or weak commodity prices. “It’s reminiscent of what worked in the 1990s. The strategic use of our foreign content is very important because we expect that Canada will be an under-performing market. The easiest way to do that is to get out of that market as much as you can.” What’s behind Lane’s conviction that it’s time to accentuate U.S. stocks? “The average U.S. stock has been in a bear market since 1998, or 15 years. The typical bear-market duration is 13 to 16 years, going back to 1907,” says Lane. “What we have now is the start of a 13- to 16-year equity cycle where we will revert to the mean. You should get double-digit returns over the next decade.” In a parallel move, Lane wants to concentrate on sectors such as industrials, technology, consumer-related (staples and discretionary) and health care. One representative holding is Catamaran Corp. (TSX:CCT), which manages drug plans for governments and corporations. “The two drivers of their business are rising numbers of prescriptions as the population ages, and the amount of generic drugs that can be used to lower costs,” says Lane. “Catamaran uses its size to lower the cost of drugs — it’s a high-growth company” Health care represents only 3% of the TSX, although Lane believes that can more than double within five years. “One of the names that will get you there is Catamaran.” A Montreal native, Lane is a 15-year industry veteran whose father, John, worked for more than four decades in the investment department of Sun Life Financial. After Lane graduated from Queen’s University with a bachelor of commerce in 1997, he started working as a technology and small-cap analyst at TD Asset Management Inc. From 1998 to 2000, Lane was assistant manager for TD Canadian Small-Cap Equity Fund. In September 2000, Lane was hired by GCIC. After about a year, he began working with Sehgal on the Power brand of growth funds. “Where my father was a value guy, my tendency was to be a growth guy,” says Lane. “I like great businesses that grow a lot as well as highly profitable businesses with defensible models. That’s my mantra.” Today, Lane is responsible for about $2.4 billion in assets under management, including the three-star rated Dynamic Power Small Cap Fund, which he has overseen for a decade. That fund has an annualized 9.1% return for the 10-year period ended Aug. 31, versus 3.6% for the median return in the Canadian focused small/mid cap equity category. Effective Sept. 1, following a transition period, Lane also replaced Sehgal as the lead manager of Dynamic Power Balanced Fund. With its two-star Morningstar Rating, the flagship Dynamic Power Canadian Growth Fund has been a chronic laggard. For the five years ended Aug. 31, it has an annualized 5.6% loss, vs a gain of 1.7% for the median fund in the Canadian focused equity category. Over the last 12 months it returned 10.1%, compared to 15.4% for the median return. The fund has also been hurt by high volatility, which caused a fair amount of redemptions. “A lot of that was due to the damage done in 2011 and 2012, which were difficult years for growth managers,” says Lane. “Going forward, however, we will have tailwinds helping us. There will be more optimism which will fuel a return by investors.” One U.S. holding that he believes will benefit from rising optimism is the life insurer MetLife (NYSE:MET). Based on his view that government bonds will have a tougher time, “the best way to play that trend is through life-insurance companies because they benefit as interest rates rise,” says Lane, adding life-insurance firms also benefit from rising equity markets because they invest their float in stocks. Lane argues that MetLife’s shares are undervalued and may catch up to Canadian peers that have already seen an upward move. “We will keep our Canadian insurers because there is still more upside. But we will add to stocks like MetLife.” Keywords Fund managersCompanies GCIC Ltd.

We think the market is going through a change in leadership,” says Lane, vice-president fund sponsor Toronto-based GCIC Ltd., who has been with the firm since 2000. “We want to make sure the fund is properly positioned for that.” read more

BMO Harris is one of the Largest Banks in the Midwest V 123RF Patrick Cronin, the bank’s chief risk officer, attributed the high provisions to the Covid-19 pandemic, but said he has confidence in the bank’s ability to operate in such an environment.“There continues to be a high degree of uncertainty around the trajectory of the economic recovery, but we feel with this quarter’s addition to our performing loan allowance, we are well prepared and provisioned,” he told analysts.“We have been pleased with our credit experience so far during this crisis with credit migration, payment deferral expiry and impaired loan loss provisions well within expectations and utilization rates back to normal levels.”Cronin’s comments came as the bank earned $1.81 per share for the quarter, down from a profit of $1.56 billion or $2.34 per share a year ago.Revenue was $7.19 billion, up from $6.67 billion.On an adjusted basis, BMO says it earned $1.85 per share for the quarter, down from an adjusted profit of $2.38 per share in the same quarter last year.Analysts on average had expected an adjusted profit of $1.71 per share for the quarter, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.On top of beating expectations, chief executive Darryl White said he has several reasons to be optimistic.BMO’s wealth management business, for example, saw its net income climb by $91 million or 37% from the previous year to reach $341 million.Its capital market business reported a $426-million net income, up by $112 million or 36% from the prior year.The bank is also set to become one of eight U.S. banks to offer mobile-first chequing accounts managed via Google Pay in 2021.“We have the appropriate defensive positioning for an uncertain environment with our diversified business model, meaningful performing loan coverage and more capital than we had before Covid,” White said.“At the same time, our operating momentum has been tested and proven to remain among the best-in-class, setting us up well for the eventual economic recovery.” Share this article and your comments with peers on social media BMO Financial Group put aside a hefty amount of money again to protect itself from bad loans, but still managed to beat expectations and post a $1.23-billion profit in its latest quarter.The Toronto-based bank said Tuesday that provisions for credit losses amounted to $1.05 billion in its third quarter, up from $306 million last year and down from $1.11 billion last quarter.
