Unions threaten mass cuts protests

first_img whatsapp Unions threaten mass cuts protests Share THE Trades Union Conference (TUC) issued a stark set of warnings about industrial unrest later this year after it said public spending cuts will hit the UK’s poorest 13 times harder than the richest. Unions will discuss during their three-day annual conference whether to launch a nationwide set of strikes. Labour candidate Ed Miliband has lashed out at such warnings, saying the unions need to act more responsibly.Meanwhile, it was claimed that the government doesn’t need to cut a single job in the public and civil services. The Public and Commercial Services union said that other measures, such as the scrapping of trident and a clampdown on tax avoidance, would help reduce the deficit.

We have started scoring again, but there is no reason to shout for victory. We must remain alert and vigilant,” economic and monetary affairs commissioner Olli Rehn said.The Commission forecast is in line with projections by the European Central Bank which said on 2 September it expected Eurozone growth to be between 1.4 and 1.7 per cent this year. However, it warned the recovery remained fragile. KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

More Britons want pre-nups

first_img More Britons want pre-nups THE NUMBER of young Britons seeking pre-nuptials has risen as lawmakers are urging the courts and the government to decide on whether to make the pre-marriage contracts legally binding. A recent poll of 1,000 people across the country found that nearly half of all 18-24 year olds would consider taking out a pre-nuptial agreement.The research, published by Dawsons law firm and conducted by OnePoll, found that the youngest group surveyed were more likely to seek out the pre-marriage contract than any other as high-profile divorce disputes continue to hit the courts. “It is clear that pre-nups are no longer the exclusive territory of the rich and famous. Younger men and women are aware that divorce is more than prevalent now than it was in the age of their parents and grandparents,” said Suzanne Kingston at Dawsons. Similarly, 42 per cent of people surveyed between the ages of 45-54 years have considered taking out a pre-nuptial agreement as they have either gone through a divorce or know someone who has.But Britons are still unsure about it and 65 per cent said they would not consider taking out the pre-marriage contract.The results come as lawyers are eagerly awaiting a landmark ruling to come out of the Supreme Court on the bitter dispute between heiress Katrin Radmacher and husband Nicolas Granantino. Lawyers are expecting the “landmark” ruling to give guidance to the legal status of the pre-nuptial agreement. Kingston said: “The ruling by the Supreme Court on the Radmacher divorce will mark the end of what has been one of the most acrimonious and high profile divorce cases in recent years…this will see the status of pre-nuptial agreements clarified by the highest court in the country at last.” Tags: NULL Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndo Sunday 10 October 2010 10:59 pm Read This Next’Kevin Can F**k Himself’: Here’s Why Only Allison and Patty Are SeenThe Wrap20 Stars Who’ve Posted Nude Selfies, From Lizzo to John Legend (Photos)The Wrap’Batwoman’: Wallis Day on Circe’s ‘Deranged’ Warpath and the Key to SavingThe Wrap’Godzilla vs Kong’ Reaches $100 Million in US After Grossing $250,000 inThe WrapJoin a Conversation on ‘Cancel Culture in Comedy’ with Maz Jobrani, SkyeThe WrapAnya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Fiennes Join Searchlight’s Dark Comedy ‘The Menu’The WrapAfter ‘Black Widow,’ Kevin Feige Leaves Open the Possibility of OtherThe Wrap’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe Wrap whatsapplast_img read more

Hewlett-Packard boss to testify

first_img Hewlett-Packard boss to testify KCS-content Hewlett-Packard’s new chief executive is set to testify at Silicon Valley’s biggest trial in years, possibly answering charges he oversaw SAP’s theft of software from Oracle. Oracle attorney Geoffrey Howard told a court yesterday that former SAP boss Leo Apotheker — who started his job as head of HP on Monday — would testify at the high-stakes trial, with his credibility at stake. The trial’s other celebrity witness will be Oracle chief Larry Ellison, a billionaire playboy known for his public outbursts and a passion for racing sailboats and cars. SAP has admitted liability for the wrongful downloading of software content from Oracle, but the two disagree sharply on how much SAP should pay in damages.

Russia in talks for Potash bid

first_img Russia in talks for Potash bid whatsapp Friday 5 November 2010 12:43 am Show Comments ▼ A RUSSIAN group said yesterday it was in intensive talks ahead of launching a rival bid for Potash Corp, as BHP Billiton said its blocked $39bn (£24.7bn) bid for fertiliser group Potash Corp was not dead and pledged to work with the Canadian government.Phosagro claimed it was in intensive talks with the Russian government and potential partners for a rival bid, and said it would announce its next move after 15 November.Meanwhile, a spokesperson for BHP said yesterday that the Anglo-Australian mining giant will continue to work with Industry Canada to resurrect its takeover offer, which was blocked by industry minister on Wednesday night. The firm has 30 days to meet the government’s conditions, which have not been made public. However, agriculture minister Gerry Ritz hinted yesterday that the BHP’s Australian roots had been a factor. “Australia is a major marketer of a lot of the same foodstuffs that Canada is. We’re a volume producer – so are they,” he said in a speech. BHP’s London-listed shares rocketed 6.6 per cent yesterday as relieved investors saw the odds of an expensive takeover lengthen dramatically. Shares in Potash fell 2.4 per cent.

The group has sold 1,900 homes in the year so far, around 1,600 of which were private homes and the rest social housing. Total sales are slightly above 2009 levels, when Bovis sold 1,800 homes. However, a reduced number of newly built sites meant Bovis’ sales per site rose 14 per cent to 0.42 homes per week in the period. Chief executive David Ritchie said during a conference call that the average sale price of £160,000 was ahead of Bovis’ forecasts. “Market conditions remain challenging, but the group is well placed to expand its operations and we believe the medium term prospects for the group are strong,” Ritchie added. The group held £14m in cash at the end of October, thanks to around £106m of land cash payments throughout 2010. Bovis swung back into profit during the first half of the year after sales were badly hit during the recession. Bovis’ shares closed 1.1 per cent higher at 354p yesterday. whatsapp Monday 8 November 2010 9:24 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Bovis maintains house sales but says market is still tough Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

Bundesbank: CDS did not cause crisis

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Monday 20 December 2010 8:12 pm Tags: NULL GERMANY’S central bank said yesterday that speculative trading in sovereign credit default swaps (CDS) was not to blame for the Eurozone debt crisis. In its December report, the Bundesbank said that a spike in the cost of insuring sovereign debt using CDS was not down to excessive speculation by traders. Instead, movements in CDS prices for peripheral Eurozone economies – like Greece, Spain and Ireland – was due to specific problems in those countries, the Bundesbank said. It added that the CDS market had responded well to important information about the financial strength of these countries, such as credit rating agency downgrades. The Bundesbank also found that suggestions speculative traders pushed up the price of CDS to make a quick profit was “not confirmed by empirical data”.The report backs up a similar investigation by the European Commission, which also found that trading in sovereign CDS was not to blame for a spike in borrowing costs for the likes of Greece. The report, published earlier this month, found “no conclusive evidence” that developments in the CDS market affected the cost of state borrowing.It praised the “efficiency of CDS markets in sovereign debt” and said they had little influence on bond yields even where governments faced funding difficulties.“CDS spreads for the more troubled countries seem to be low relative to the corresponding bond yield spreads, which implies that CDS spreads can hardly be considered to cause high bond yields for these countries,” said the report, which was commissioned by European finance ministers in March. The findings come hot on the heels of tough new European Commission proposals published in September, which aim to tighten rules on short selling and restrict trading of CDS on sovereign debt, where investors effectively take a short position on EU government bonds.But Syed Kamall, a UK member of the European Parliament, has warned the crackdown could actually lead to higher sovereign borrowing costs. whatsappcenter_img Share Bundesbank: CDS did not cause crisis whatsapplast_img read more

Last year was tough for investment banks, with little mergers and acquisitions activity to generate fees income. European equity deals have been charged at two per cent.Bloomberg data shows that Goldman earned $213m in fees from lending shares last year, with an average fee of 1.8 per cent. It gained the top spot in Bloomberg’s table versus its investment banking rivals.The scarcity of equity deals has led banks like Goldman to seek out primary market business for non-public firms, such as its $1.5bn capital-raising initiative for Facebook. last_img read more

Britons downbeat over economy

Over half the respondents in two of the “BRIC” nations – Brazil (78 per cent) and India (61 per cent) – expect their economy to get stronger in the next six months. In China 44 per anticipate economic strengthening. Britons were far more pessimistic, with only 13 per cent rating the economy as “good” and only one in 10 optimistic about the future of their local economy.
