The BBC said that the marriage is currently on the cards.Sources close to the two bodies have suggested that once the current CC chairman, Peter Freeman, stands down from his post, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) could move to merge the two bodies. Documents from BIS, which oversees both the OFT and CC, show that the governmental department is currently reviewing competition law in the UK, as well as the role of both CC and the OFT. The review is part of its structural reform plan.The document said: “Review competition law and the roles of the competition authorities relating to Competition Commission and the Office of Fair Trading.”The review is set to end in January 2011, just one month after Freeman retires from his role at the CC.“Both have been around for a long time. It [a merger] would be a momentous event and will deliver a thorough shock to their systems,” said one source close to the situation. Another said: “Right now having two agencies is very expensive and the competition commission’s investigations are very intensive and thus costly. Can the government save money by merging the two?”A spokesperson from BIS said: “BIS is currently in the process of looking at its partner organisations. Any further actions will be made in due course.”It comes as the OFT and CC published joint merger guidelines yesterday for the first time ever.The joint merger assessment guidelines have been designed to provide greater clarity to companies and advisers on how both bodies will assess the competitive impact of a merger. Lawyers have praised the move as a “productive step forward”. Watchdogs face merger as cuts begin last_img read more

NAB sees UK profits double

first_img whatsapp THE owner of Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks announced a rise in full year pre-tax profits of over 50 per cent yesterday after it advanced £4.7bn in mortgages and wrote down fewer bad debts.National Australia Bank (NAB) said lending had been subdued in the year to 30 September but that it was “firmly on track” to deliver on its £10bn two-year new lending promise. Its profits grew 53 per cent to £164m from £107m a year earlier. Meanwhile bad debts had fallen 18 per cent on the previous year to £74m. Average retail deposits were up 100 per cent to £23.1bn on a year earlier and double the industry average growth it added.The UK business, which has around 400 branches and employs 8,355 staff, said it was attracting growing numbers of small and mid-corporate firms after £2.7bn of lending to business over the course of the year.Lynne Peacock, UK chief executive, said: “While national economic recovery will provide further challenges, Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank is in a strong position and continues to send a clear message to new and existing customers that they have real choice and support.”NAB said it would maintain its prudent approach to lending, despite the recent improvement in economic conditions and in commercial property prices resulting in a reduction in the level of its bad debt provisions.Mortgage balances more than 90 days overdue as a percentage of the portfolio were significantly lower than the industry at 0.76 per cent in September, it added.The UK company has been the subject of deal speculation in recent months after it failed in the auction of 318 branches put up for sale by Royal Bank of Scotland, a deal later secured by Spanish giant Santander.LYNNE PEACOCKNATIONALAUSTRALIA BANKLYNNE Peacock, 56, and currently UK?chief executive of National Australia Bank, has worked in the banking sector for 27 years after joining Woolwich building society in 1983.After obtaining a degree from East London Polytechnic in the 1970s she begun her career as a marketing executive for Tate & Lyle and then Unilever.She later moved into banking joining the Woolwich in its marketing department before eventually becoming group operations director a role she once described in an interview as her “best ever title.”She went on to become chief executive of the building society in 2000 but left three years later after overseeing the integration of operations following the acquisition of Woowich by Barclays Bank. Soon after she joined National Australia Bank (NAB). She was appointed chief executive of NAB’s UK operations in March last year from her previous position as chief executive for Europe, a role she took up in October 2004. She is also apparently a fervent West Ham United fan.

Bank of England split 6-3 over rate rise

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp Bank of England split 6-3 over rate rise John Dunne Bank of England chief economist Spencer Dale joined Andrew Sentance and Martin Weale in voting for higher rates in February, minutes to the Bank of England’s February 9-10 meeting showed on Wednesday.Moreover, the minutes also suggested that some of those opposed a rate hike this month would consider if it if the economy shows signs of picking up after an unexpected fall in output at the end of 2010.“Most members agreed that the balance of risks to inflation in the medium term relative to the target had moved upwards in recent months and that the case for withdrawing some of the current exceptionally accommodative monetary policy had consequently been strengthened,” the minutes said.Economists had expected a repeat of last month’s 7-2 vote, though another member joining the Bank’s hawkish camp had been seen as a possibility after Bank Governor Mervyn King said last week that the MPC was unusually divided.Inflation is currently 4 percent, double the Bank’s two per cent target, but last week the central bank forecast it would fall below target in two years if interest rates rise gradually.Dale and Weale both called for a 25 basis point increase in the Bank’s record low 0.5 per cent interest rate, while Sentance said the time had come for a 50 basis point rise.Dale and Weale favoured a smaller rate increase than Sentance because they believed there was greater uncertainty about the economic outlook. Sentance was concerned that firms were passing on higher costs.Adam Posen repeated his call for a £50bn expansion to the Bank’s programme of quantitative easing asset purchases to £250bn.But he acknowledged that a sustained increase in global demand or a shift in sentiment against sterling could outweigh domestic downward pressures on inflation, but he did not see this risk as large enough to require tighter policy now.The minutes follow a BoE quarterly Inflation Report which suggested rates may have to rise two or three times this year for the central bank to have an optimal chance of getting inflation back on track in the medium term.The minutes showed that the MPC saw upward risks to inflation from commodity prices, loose monetary in emerging markets and inflation expectations – though there was little evidence that the last of these had increased materially. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The Episcopal Church as well, is rethinking the format, timing, and range of issues that might be taken up by the next General Convention.In light of these disruptions of our official decision-making bodies and forced changes to the original timeline, the United Methodist and Episcopal Church members of the dialogue committee agree that it is prudent for our churches not to press forward with action on full communion next year.  Instead, the Committee recommends that both bodies take up the full-communion proposal at their next General Convention/General Conference after 2021.”Below is the full statement from the Committee.September 2020 CommuniquéThe United Methodist – Episcopal Church Dialogue Committee met on July 30, via video conference to consider next steps in bringing our churches into a full-communion relationship.  Our hope was to bring the proposal “A Gift to the World: Co-Laborers for the Healing of Brokenness” before our two church-wide bodies in 2020 and 2021 respectively.The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic with its sweeping disruptions has regrettably, but understandably, necessitated a rethinking of this timeline.  Our churches and people are responding to unprecedented challenges in their local communities, conferences/dioceses, and at the denominational level.  The United Methodist General Conference scheduled for May of 2020 has been postponed until Aug. 29-Sept. 7, of 2021.  The Episcopal Church as well, is rethinking the format, timing, and range of issues that might be taken up by the next General Convention.In light of these disruptions of our official decision-making bodies and forced changes to the original timeline, the United Methodist and Episcopal Church members of the dialogue committee agree that it is prudent for our churches not to press forward with action on full communion next year.  Instead, the Committee recommends that both bodies take up the full-communion proposal at their next General Convention/General Conference after 2021.This realization comes with both disappointment and hope for future possibilities.  Our ongoing work toward unity at Christ’s table continues.  We do not recommend a delay in action on full communion lightly.  This work is an outward and visible sign of the grace that seeks to end all divisions in the human family.  Therefore, we call upon our churches to continue deepening our connections in mission, ministry, and worship under the existing “Interim Eucharistic Sharing Agreement.” Furthermore, it is our desire that the ongoing work toward unity between our churches be taken up in the wider context of the pressing needs in our world for health and wholeness, racial justice, and the remaking of human community.  The Committee is acutely aware that these actions come in a time of multiple pandemics which are exposing the deep divisions and disparities of our current social context in the United States, with its long history of racism and increasing indifference toward the lives and suffering of historically marginalized people.These issues strike at the core of our work toward unity in the Body of Christ.  “A Gift to the World” places the future unity of our churches within the context of lament that “church divisions in the US have reflected racial and socioeconomic divisions.”   Further, this proposal recognizes “the lasting sin of racism in our society and our churches” and affirms “the need for ongoing repentance, truth telling, and work for racial justice and healing.”It is in this spirit that the United Methodist-Episcopal Church Dialogue Committee calls upon our churches to increase partnerships in the work for racial justice at the local and denominational levels.  We commend to all our people the work now being done by The United Methodist Church (here and here) and The Episcopal Church (here) to continue addressing the persistent sin of racism.  Now more than ever Christians need to present a unified witness as we tell the truth about the sin of White Supremacy with the violence, suffering, and indifference toward the lives of black and brown persons it causes in our society and as we seek to dismantle the social, political and economic instruments that perpetuate it.In a time such as this, may we draw strength from the unity we already share in Christ as we work for a world free of the hatred, violence, and sinful divisions that now plague us.Episcopal Church Committee Members:Dr. Deirdre Good, co-chairThe Rt.

Jean Deysel suspended for seven weeks for kneeing Crusaders player

first_imgTuesday Apr 7, 2015 Jean Deysel suspended for seven weeks for kneeing Crusaders player Sharks flanker Jean Deysel has been banned for 7 weeks following the red card he received in the 52-10 defeat to the Crusaders on Saturday. In an interesting twist, his off-field family trauma has been taken into account as mitagating factors for the knee to the head. The Crusaders scored an unprecidented eight tries in Durban, but have the Sharks a bit of a chance late in the first half when they had no less than three players yellow carded within minutes of one another.As the Sharks attacked, that advantage was nullified by Deysel’s dangerous play after he was clearly frustrated with the visitors slowing down the Sharks’ quick ball. He was sent off by referee Stuart Berry, giving the oppostion a man advantage for most of the second half.In the subsequent SANZAR disciplinary hearing Deysel gave a guilty plea for contravening Law 10.4 (a) Punching or striking. Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson QC accepted the plea, and suspended Deysel from all forms of the game for seven weeks.In his finding, Davidson ruled the following: “Video footage provided clear evidence that Jean Deysel was engaged at the breakdown when he jumped up then brought his right knee down on the side of Matt Todd’s head while he lay on the ground.“While Todd was fortunately not injured, the act carried real potential for injury and Todd was in a vulnerable position. The breach of Law 10.4 (a) required a mid-range entry point which carries an eight-week suspension.“I added an additional week for Deysel’s recent offending as an aggravating factor.“He was suspended for three weeks for foul play last Super Rugby season. I then addressed mitigating personal circumstances and the discount available for an admitted breach, not that there was any defence for his actions.“Deysel, to his credit, did not seek to minimise his actions. He said he was deeply ashamed and that his actions were against everything he stands for, despite his earlier breaches. “He could only refer to his emotional and irrational response when frustrated at the breakdown, and he asked himself why he acted in such an extreme manner.  “After my preliminary considerations, I was advised of an off-field mitigating circumstance which may in rare circumstances be brought to account under Regulation 17. “In this case, there are truly exceptional circumstances associated with the health of his immediate family which must bear on his state of mind, and go some way to explain his irrational actions. This is not an excuse but a basis to exercise some small leniency in the sanction applied. “A discount was applied due to these mitigating factors. I took into account that the Sharks have a bye in Round 11, in effect making this a six-match sanction. Therefore, the player is suspended from all forms of rugby up to and including Saturday 23 May 2015.”World Rugby Regulation 17.19.5Mitigating factors include the following: (f) any other off-field mitigating factor(s) that the Disciplinary Committee or Judicial Officer considers relevant and appropriate.View full highlights from the match below, including all the tries, the 3 Crusaders yellow cards, and the Deysel red card (6:25), which can also be seen briefly above.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Israeli army issues raid threat to Palestinian TV station

first_img Organisation News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is dismayed and alarmed to learn that Michael Sfard and Noa Amrami, lawyers for the Ramallah-based Palestinian TV station Wattan TV, have been served with a notice by the Israeli army threatening the station with another raid unless it stops broadcasting.In a letter dated 24 April, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) legal department said the station’s new frequency was allocated illegally, was in breach of an interim agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and jeopardized security in the area.“The letter is the umpteenth threat couched in violent language from the Israeli army against Wattan TV, even though the station has complied with a request from the High Court of Justice last December to obtain a new broadcasting frequency from the Palestinian telecommunications ministry,” said Lucie Morillon, Reporters Without Borders head of research.“It seems clear that whatever steps the station takes, the Israeli army will do everything it can to put it off the air. Will they go as far as carrying out another raid, like the one in February 2012?”Moammar Orabi, the station’s director, told Reporters Without Borders that it was another form of pressure by the Israeli army against the station. “But we are not going down that road,” he said. “The Israeli army’s order is illegal since the station has a permit to broadcast issued by the Palestinian telecommunications ministry.”He added: “Furthermore, we have filed a complaint against the Israeli army over the threatened raid.”Interviewed on the website Amad, Orabi said he had “consulted several experts in the field of frequencies and they all told us the station was causing no interference or jamming and there was no danger to security as they have claimed. These allegations are false and are designed to interfere with the work of Palestinian news organizations, which amounts to an attack on freedom of expression.”Reporters Without Borders notes that Wattan TV has been the target of harassment by the Israeli military authorities for several years. The army stormed the station’s offices in February 2012, seizing all its transmission equipment and administrative files dating back to 2002.The Israeli High Court of Justice decided last December not to overturn the army’s decision to seize Wattan TV’s transmission equipment. The court postponed a final decision in the matter until Wattan TV tried to obtain a new frequency from the Palestinian Authority which did not interfere with IDF communications systems. This was done, according to Orabi: “We obtained a new frequency about a month ago.”Despite repeated requests by press freedom organizations and the station’s lawyers, the court accepted, after an ex parte review of secret material, that the broadcasts interfered with some security communications and the seizure of the transmitters was thus legal. Wattan TV asked the court to allow time for it to try to obtain a licence using a different frequency. The army objected as it wanted to make the seizure permanent and take over ownership of the transmitters. The court granted extra time, which has since been further extended. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority has allocated a new frequency to Wattan TV but the Israelis have refused to give their consent, although they should have done so under the interim agreement.In light of this, Wattan TV has asked the court to order the army to hand over the transmitters and it has promised not use them until the new frequency is authorized. Wattan TV is awaiting a final decision by the High Court.The Israeli authorities also ordered the management of the station Al-Sheraa Al-Mahalli TV in Tulkarem to suspend broadcasting temporarily in February this year or face the seizure of all its equipment. They used the same excuse, namely that the station’s signal was disrupting Ben Gurion airport and communications inside Israel.According to the station’s director Mohamed Zaydan, quoted in the newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida: “We brought in a committee of experts from the telecommunications ministry as well engineers from Al-Najah university. After checking all devices and equipment belonging to Al-Sheraa Al-Mahalli, the experts concluded that the station was operating in accordance with official standards.” PalestineMiddle East – North Africa WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists May 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists Follow the news on Palestine June 3, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information May 21, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Israeli army issues raid threat to Palestinian TV station May 16, 2021 Find out more RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes Newslast_img read more
