At the same time, David Cameron has chosen for his own political reasons to flirt with the idea of leaving the EU, and publicly threatening to do so.I believe both Ukip and the Conservative Party now pose a huge danger to British business and our national interest. Leaving Europe risks destroying jobs, businesses and future prosperity. And the government’s ritual of playing to the Eurosceptic gallery is dragging us ever closer to the exit door.Our European allies throw their hands up in despair at the combination of insults, blackmail and detachment that comes from Downing Street. Foreign investors are beginning to regard Britain as a riskier place to do business.The lesson of the past two years is clear. Using “Brexit” as a threat does not work as a way of getting reform in Europe. It isolates us from the allies we need to achieve the change we want.It is making it less, not more, likely that we gain support for what is in our national interest: completing the single market; maintaining the integrity of our benefits system; and cutting the costs of the EU budget.But allies in Europe are growing weary of posturing and threats from Britain. Some are now calling our bluff and telling us we are free to leave. Indeed, when the Foreign Secretary says he wants Britain to “light a fire under the EU”, all he is doing is lighting the fuse on Britain leaving.I am clear that this would be a historic moment of economic self-harm: a betrayal of millions of people and businesses whose future depends on our EU membership.Over half of Britain’s trade is with countries in the EU, worth over £200bn a year, and supporting between three and four million jobs. I know that the vast majority of British businesses, despite the many frustrations and inefficiencies of Europe, want Britain to stay in the EU, and become a leading force in its reform. We also know that global companies from outside the EU are quite prepared to take their activity elsewhere if we made the catastrophic decision to walk away from EU membership. Citi, Goldman Sachs and other prominent City firms have warned not only of the damage that Brexit would inflict on our economy, but also of the possibility that international companies would relocate away from the UK “in very short order” to retain access to the European single market. If I am Prime Minister, I will never risk your businesses, profits and futures by playing political games with our membership of the EU.But my speech to the CBI today will not pretend that we can carry on with business as usual, either in Europe or at home. The only way we will overcome the forces of despair that drive calls for withdrawal and protectionism is by tackling the deep roots of it in our economy.Instead of pandering to the false promise of prosperity in isolation from Europe, we have to face up to how to restore shared prosperity inside it. That requires partnership between business and government. We have to change the way our economy works so that it can once again meet people’s need for good jobs at decent wages, providing security and proper opportunities for the next generation. To do that we need to address some of the sources of economic weakness: our weak productivity; poor technical skills base; low investment; a recovery too dependent on consumption; and an increasing trade deficit.I passionately believe that making our economy more productive is the flip-side of ensuring we build an economy that works for the broad majority and not just a few. Achieving this will not be easy or quick, and can only be done through cooperation between government and business: but it is in the interests of us all.It’s time to come together with our sleeves rolled up to build a recovery which works for the many, and a country that seeks to prosper inside the European Union. center_img Monday 10 November 2014 12:10 am Ed Miliband Share Tags: Brexitlast_img read more

Theatre review: 2017 at the Royal Court

first_imgFriday 14 November 2014 9:21 am Melissa York  Royal Court | ★★★☆☆ Climate change is the defining global issue of our times, professor Chris Rapley states, matter-of-factly, from a chair on the stage. Over the course of an hour, unaided by notes but surrounded by digitised graphics of the earth, the renowned climate scientist calmly presents the fact that when his granddaughter is his age in 2071, the earth will be damaged irreparably, unless there’s wider public pressure to push for a solution. Less of a play, more of a lecture, this data-driven talk would have had greater theatrical impact as a call-to-arms polemic, but instead settles for a humbler scientific objectivity that quietly leaves the menace to simmer behind the facts. CRITICS CHOICE: THEATRE King Charles IIIFour starsThis brilliantly written play explores what Britain will be like when Prince Charles is king.

London leads UK-wide house price slowdown

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share More evidence has emerged that suggests London house price growth is set to slow sharply while the national market moderates.Of the UK’s 20 largest cities, 14 are now registering house price in­fla­tion below the national average for the UK, according to data released today by property market analysts Hometrack.Over the past 12 months, London has seen the biggest gain – 17.3 per cent. However, another set of data released today suggests the London market is slowing after a year of boom. In London the proportion of households reporting that the value of their property rose in November was 62.7 per cent, down from 73.3 per cent last month, according to estate agents Knight Frank and financial information firm Markit. “The latest figures indicate the sharpest month-on-month slowdown for just over three years, led by a decisive shift in momentum across London,” said Tim Moore, senior economist at Markit.A house price sentiment index produced by Markit continued to imply growth was slowing. The index decreased to 58.4 in November from 60.7 in October. Any figure above 50 signifies growth, while 50 equals no growth.Figures from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors have shown a sharp drop in buyer enquiries since earlier this year, and the steepness of the drop has been even more pronounced in London.“Despite the economic uncertainty, the slowdown in the UK housing market will be welcome news for policy makers who want to avoid a debt- fuelled acceleration in house prices supported by record low mortgage rates. We expect the rate of house price growth to slow further in the run up to the year end,” said Richard Donnell, research director at Hometrack.

British Property Federation chief Liz Peace was there, fresh from the James Andrew International party the night before. “What is it about this time of year, events just pile up?” she told The Capitalist. The speaker for the lunch was BBC’s political editor Nick Robinson, who managed to pack in the event before jumping on a train to Rochester. “We’re glad he could make it before going off to cover the racist by-election, sorry! The Rochester by-election,” said Van Gelder. “I’m glad he made that joke rather than me,” said Robinson as he joined the stage. Robinson went on to regale the crowd with some of his all-time favourite political quotes. The one which raised the most laughs was from one Nicolas Sarkozy. “When talking about David Cameron’s getting involved in Eurozone crisis talks, the French President said, ‘it’s like he’s gone to a swingers party without bringing his wife’.” Cue uproarious laughing from the crowd.

It is also expected to bring with it the first widespread snowfall of the year. Gales of 80mph are predicted, along with between 2cm and 4cm of snow. “Tonight there will be further wintry showers in the north and west, with snow over northern hills, reaching lower levels at times,” the Met said. “Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England are most at risk from snow and ice.” There will be yellow “be prepared” weather alerts in Scotland, the north, the Midlands, Wales and Northern Ireland later on Saturday.  Yesterday, thousands of homes were left without power and after the first of the two storms struck. Hurricane force-winds hit the north of Britain and left more than 100,000 homes without power.  Scottish Power has announced that 20,000 customers are now reconnected to their power supplies, while Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution says electricity has been restored to around 60,000 homes.  Travel services were disrupted, with trains between Edinburgh and Glasgow affected. On roads, high winds caused problems on the A1 in Yorkshire and the North East as lorries toppled over and blocked the carriageway. The trans-Pennine A66 was also closed.  The cause of this spate of bad weather is a powerful jet stream coming from the US, where very low temperatures hit warmer air in the south.  whatsapp Share Tags: UK weatherlast_img read more

Demand for houses has been falling in the housing market for six months, or eight if you live in London. It doesn’t feel so long ago we were talking about booms and whispering of bubbles, but that’s gone for now.The latest figures from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors reveals that 10 per cent more surveyors reported weakening demand in December than a month earlier. The weakest place in the country? The powerhouse, London. 45 per cent more surveyors reported a fall in enquirers in the capital, its eight consecutive month of decline. House prices are going in the same direction, with the Office for National Statistics reporting  10 per cent growth for the UK in the year to November. It was 10.4 per cent in October. There is light at the end of what could melodramatically be called a small tunnel: stamp duty reforms have injected some optimism: RICS believes there is a chance that the changes in the tax will lead to a two to five per cent increase in the number of sales over the next 12 months.In London, however, members believe that sales will fall by between five and 10 per cent and prices by 2-5 per cent.Simon Rubinsohn, RICS chief economist, saw the amount of housing stock as the biggest issue, an opinion he is not alone in holding.The changes to stamp duty are expected to provide a timely boost to activity in the housing market across most of the country but there remain significant challenges particularly for first time buyers seeking to take an initial step onto the property ladder.Critically, the stock of property on the market continues to hover close to historic lows with new instructions to agents falling in ten of the last twelve months. Indeed, there is a risk that with so little housing available any pick-up in demand could rapidly feed through into higher prices rather than higher sales.

Mindfulness, robots and Will.I.Am: Eight things you need to know about Davos 2015

first_img Mindfulness, robots and Will.I.Am: Eight things you need to know about Davos 2015 Caloo, calay: it’s that time of year again, when leaders flock from the four corners of the globe to a smallish mountain town in the Swiss Alps, so they might wear ridiculous snow boots, slide over ice-covered streets in an undigified manner and generally discuss matters of grave world importance. For today, 2015’s World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos commences. Here’s what you need to know:1. Some numbers More than 2,500 participants have rocked up, representing over 20 industries and 100 countries. Of those present, 17 per cent are female, 40 are heads of state (not David Cameron, mind), 1,500 are business leaders and 14 are Nobel laureates. The average age of participants is 53 for men and 40 for women. The youngest participant is 22-year of Alain Nteff, co-founder of African mobile health platform Gifted Mom, while Shimon Peres, Israel’s former president, is the oldest, aged 91.Despite the focus on climate, many participants arrive by plane. Last year 1,700 private jets flew passengers to the conference, according to Newsweek, while 20 per cent of attendees used choppers to travel to Zurich airport.2. This year’s event is taking place in a vastly different climate to last yearThis time last year, European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi was preparing a speech in which he said there were signs of “dramatic” improvement in the Eurozone, while German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble was about to explain why the financial crisis was over. Oil prices were beginning to show signs of instability, but only because of protests that blocked Libyan production. Fast forward 12 months, and the world economy is a transformed place. On Thursday, Draghi is widely expected to announce a programme of quantitative easing, while on Sunday Greeks go to the polls in a vote that could conceivably kick off a Greek exit from the Eurozone. Meanwhile, oil prices are at a record low.So expect the overall tone to be more cautious and less celebratory than last year.3. Concerns about global security far outnumber other factors this yearAs the chart above shows, the number of sessions focusing on “society and security” is almost double the next-most popular subject, “innovation and industry”. Given the political climate, that’s hardly surprising: with concerns over terrorist attacks in Europe, the Middle East and Africa at an all-time high, world leaders’ thoughts will be turned to solving the problem of political unrest. 4. David Cameron won’t be there this year… although Downing Street hasn’t really explained why. Perhaps it’s worried about what it will look like if he spends a week hobnobbing with the super-rich in the run-up to a General Election; perhaps it’s worried about his safety on the perilously icy streets of the town; perhaps he’s just too busy. Either way, he’s sending George Osborne in his stead. The chancellor will appear in a panel which includes Shaeuble, legendary fund manager George Soros, Bank of Italy governor Ignazio Visco and Spanish economy minister Luis de Guindos at midday on Friday. 5. … but Will.I.Am will be thereSo there’s that.6. The WEF loves mindfulnessEach day of the conference will begin with a mindfulness meditation session led by expert Jon Kabat-Zinn, aimed at allowing participants to “learn and experience the benefits” of the technique. But that’s not all: sessions exploring the importance of mindfulness include a reading of Nicole Schwab’s book, The Heart of the Labyrinth, described as “a poetic exploration of mindfulness” and, later, a look at the “neural basis of mindfulness”. 7. Elon Musk isn’t the only one worried about robots taking over the earthArtifical intelligence dominates the technology side of the conference, with sessions on “humans vs artificial intelligence” and “robots vs humans”. However, worries about impending doom will be balanced out by legendary robotics professor, Red Whittaker, who will kick off the conference this morning with a look at how robotics is revolutionising humanity’s ability to explore and master its environment “on Earth and beyond”. 8. Everyone will walk everywhereIf you spot fewer executive chauffeur-driven cars than usual, there’s a good cause behind it: investment bank UBS has joined forces with the conference’s organisers to hand out free pedometers. The idea is that if Davos participants manage to walk an average of six kilometres (that’s 3.7 miles), 2,500 bicycles will be donated to African charity World Bicycle Relief, one for every Davos participant. That’s based on the fact many children in rural South Africa, for instance, have to walk up to nine kilometres a day to get to school. “The meeting in Davos is the ideal place to present creative solutions to improve the state of the world,” pointed out WEF founder Klaus Schwab.

This helped lift its full-year revenue by 17 per cent to £2.7bn, with operating profits up 53.6 per cent to £480m. The group said prices grew at a “slower and more sustainable” pace in the second half as new tighter lending policies introduced by the Bank of England began to take effect.However, consumer confidence remained solid thanks to healthy levels of demand for new homes and low interest rates.The company added that while the General Election was bound to create some uncertainty,the risk to the market was low, and that the crucial spring selling season had got off to a better than expected start. At the end of the year, its order book stood at 6,601 homes, which it said was “the optimal size for the business at this point of the cycle”.Shares closed up 2.07 per cent yesterday, as it lifted its 2014 dividend to 1.56p per share.

Later that evening, Downing Street head of communications Craig Oliver published a letter in which he said that the Prime Minister would only take part in a single debate, and that it would happen prior to the official election campaign beginning on 30 March. Douglas Alexander, Labour’s chair of General Election strategy fumed: “This is an outrageous attempt from the Prime Minister to bully the broadcasters.”Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has now offered to take Cameron’s place debating Miliband, and defending the government’s record. A senior Lib Dem source told City A.M.: “I don’t think anyone wants to see an hour and a half of Ed Miliband looking down the camera, and we’ve provided a solution to the broadcasters in their current dilemma.”The row over recent days further highlights that television debates are becoming increasingly unlikely. A well placed source, who helped one of the debate participants prepare in 2010, says at the time it was Sky’s veteran political editor Adam Boulton who had forced all the political parties to sign up, by collaring Clegg and Cameron. The source agreed that the debates had “energised the election” in 2010, and a similar figure was required this time around, naming LBC’s Nick Ferrari as a potential candidate to rally the debates.In January when publishing revised plans for the 2015 debate, the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky all said they would “empty chair” any party leaders who refuse to take part.The statement was seen as a direct warning to Cameron after the Prime Minister objected to the first set of proposals outlined last year.The broadcasters’ latest proposals involve three debates, one on ITV featuring the party leaders of the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, UKIP, the SNP, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru on 2 April. Followed by a BBC debate of the same group on 16 April.Then finally the idea is a Sky and Channel 4-produced head-to-head debate between David Cameron and Ed Miliband on 30 April.In a joint statement from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky this week, the broadcasters acknowledged Cameron’s letter and said they would respond to it shortly.“The broadcasters have set out their proposals and continue to talk to all the relevant parties on an equitable basis,” the broadcasters wrote. whatsapplast_img read more

Such a strong public sector figure puts the index at twice the national employment outlook, which came in at six per cent.“Our data may suggest that the public sector is front-loading its hiring in the run up to the General Election. Equally, staff shortages mean some organisations need to take on staff in order to maintain frontline services,” said Mark Cahill, ManpowerGroup’s UK managing director.“Finally, as the public sector looks to streamline its services, we’re seeing a growing focus on digitisation, leading to an increase in hiring for new skills.” Monday 9 March 2015 10:15 pmcenter_img whatsapp Share Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ last_img read more

Figures above 50 signify growth, which means France’s service sector is growing at a slower rate. However, France was shielded from the 2008-9 recession that hit Spain and Italy. “The trend is down and the level is very weak compared to other Eurozone countries,” said economist Dominique Barbet from investment bank BNP Paribas. While Barbet does not believe the PMI’s are the best indicators of French economic health, he said “the April data clearly show that France lags the Eurozone economic recovery.” whatsapp last_img read more
