Risk of interest rate rise as economy rebounds

first_img KCS-content Share Risk of interest rate rise as economy rebounds Tags: NULL Expectations that interest rates could rise as early as next week saw sterling jump to a three-month high against the dollar yesterday, after three straight days of strikingly positive economic surveys for the UK.Services, Britain’s largest sector, hit an eight-month high for business activity in January. Yet price inflation in the industry reached its steepest level since August 2008, a Markit/CIPS services PMI survey reported.“Sterling is drifting higher in line with early expectations of Bank of England tightening,” said currency strategist Lee Hardman of BTM-UFJ.“Chances of an early hike appear much greater than markets currently price in,” said Michael Saunders of Citigroup.However, most economists still believe it is too soon for a rise. “I don’t think the Bank will go in February, but it is obviously a risk,” said George Buckley of Deutsche Bank.The monetary policy committee announces its decision next Thursday.

The oil giant is claiming almost £300m in refunds, interest and compensation for paying the controversial 1.5 per cent stamp duty reserve tax on its purchase of ARCO in 1999. BP has started a case in the High Court arguing that the levy, intended to tax paperless share transfers, should not have been paid on new shares issued as part of the £17bn takeover of the American petrol station chain.HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is named as the defendant in court papers filed in December, which ask for a repayment of £186.4m plus £96.2m interest and compensation. The oil firm’s effective tax rate in 2010 was 31 per cent excluding the impact of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, according to BP’s most recent results.BP’s claim follows on from a landmark case brought by HSBC in 2009, when the bank fought for a refund of stamp duty reserve tax in the European Court of Justice. HSBC successfully argued that the tax on share transfers should not apply to new share issues made through a EU clearing house. In that case, HSBC issued shares to pay for a takeover of Crédit Commercial de France via a clearing house and a UK agent.EU law does not allow countries to tax the raising of capital. HMRC invited companies to apply directly to the department for a refund after HSBC’s victory, but said it would only grant a refund of the tax within six years of the original payment. BP yesterday declined to comment, while HMRC said it was “unable to comment on ongoing litigation cases. Statutory claims to repayment of SDRT currently need to be made within six years”.

Tenía 50 años de edad. Los asesinos estaban robando en su casa cuando ella llegó, le dieron tres puñaladas y le desfiguraron el rostro golpeándola con un bloque de cemento. La comunidad episcopal, tanto dentro como fuera del país se ha unido a la familia Allen en estos momentos de dolor.

En esta carrera sigue los pasos de Brasil, Argentina, Costa Rica y Chile y otros países latinoamericanos que han electo mujeres a la primera magistratura. El voto femenino fue aprobado en México en 1953 y la primera mujer gobernadora fue electa en 1989. Vázquez será postulada por el PAN, el partido gobernante.

The house was constructed by the Polish-Ukrainian border. Bieszczady mountains are beautiful and wild. Their melancholy and natural richness fascinate all visitors, while the low population and the abundance of games attract nature lovers and hunters. Architects from the Medusa Group studio have designed a house immersed in the hilly landscape. The architecture sets its borders with nature. No fence separating the house from the road is planned. In some places space penetrates the structure, sometimes it overlaps.Save this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiThe roof, covered with earth structure including a layer of turf, has inscribed the house into the context of the place and reduced the impression of its presence at the background of Ortyt – a picturesque and hilly Bieszczady mountain range. The design, with its owner’s hunting fascination in mind, is supposed to emphasize the beauty of the location, without interfering with its atmosphere.Save this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiSave this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiThe building, covered with corten, frames the view, sometimes even duplicating it with reflexes on vast glazed surfaces. Architects’ work is hidden among greenery, thus opening the house onto the panorama of overlapping Bieszczady peaks. At the same time, it does not obscure the view to anyone. From the side of neighbouring buildings, the house was supposed to resemble a hill bend, while from the north, to preserve the character of an architecture’s work having its scale and mass.Save this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiSave this picture!© Juliusz SokołowskiThe design consists of a private zone including a study as well as recreation and relaxation amenities and a spa with several rooms forming the guest wing. The challenge consisted of inscribing the building representing so many different functionalities in the morphology of the plot of land. While the building acquired a rusty coating and a thick layer of greenery, it got lost in the landscape. The plot recovered from most of the traces of architectural intervention in a planned way, consistent with natural processes.

A journalist accused of plotting against the President

first_img News June 28, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A journalist accused of plotting against the President June 12, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Liberia Reporters Without Borders has expressed serious concern after the arrest of Hassan Bility, editor-in-chief of the private weekly The Analyst. “The newspaper is well known for its highly critical attitude towards President Charles Taylor, and we hope that the accusation plotting against the President is not a pretext for silencing a journalist who is virulently critical of those in power”, said Robert Ménard, Secretary General of Reporters Without Borders in a letter to Liberia’s Information Minister, Reginald Goodridge. “We are concerned that this is a witch hunt against journalists who criticise government policies”, he added. Reporters Without Borders called on the minister to provide proof of the accusations as soon as possible, or to free Mr Bility.Reporters Without Borders has learned that the editor-in-chief of The Analyst, was arrested by security agents on 24 June 2002. He is accused of collaborating with the rebel group Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD). According to the Information Minister, Mr Bility is a “central figure of those who have been running cells in Monrovia actively collaborating with LURD terrorists as well as their supporters in the United States of America”. The authorities have announced that they have seized several e-mails sent or received by the journalist which they claim prove his links with the rebel group. A spokesperson for LURD, speaking from abroad, said that Mr Bility was “not a member of LURD, not even a sympathiser”, adding that he was also highly critical of LURD.Hassan Bility is being held on the premises of the National Security Agency (NSA) in Monrovia. Two other people, who have not been identified, have also been arrested on the same accusations.Reporters Without Borders also gave a reminder that, in February 2002, four journalists with The Analyst had already been held for twenty-four hours because of several articles which, according to the authorities were “not out for peace” and “poisoned the minds of the people”. Also, on 26 April, the police searched the newspaper’s offices and ordered it to be closed down. The President of the Republic personally authorised its return to the newsstands a month later.

Families say ‘no’ to drug debts

first_imgWhatsApp Linkedin Advertisement Previous articleInsp. Reidy warns on morning-after hangoverNext articleLimerick GAA Prepares for European Finals admin Treatment centres first port of callFAMILIES and friends of Limerick drug addicts are more reluctant to bail them out by meeting dealers demands – with the result that treatment centres are first port of call.However, court statistics reveal that intimidation and threats of force by dealers continue.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Bushy Park treatment centre in Ennis deals with a large volume of referrals from Limerick, and centre manager, Margaret Nash, told the Limerick Post that since the start of the recession, families are contacting them much sooner when there is a problem.“Families are not bailing people out by paying off their drug dealers anymore. They can’t afford it,” Ms Nash said.In the boom years, many would try to protect their loved ones from the threats of dealers or the prospect of prison by handing over cash and even going to the extreme of remortaging their home. “But now people are either saying to themselves and the person abusing substances that they can’t afford to do it or, in many cases, where it would have previously been easy to raise money through a loan that’s not possible now,” Ms Nash said.Rory Keane of the Limerick based Regional Drug and Alcohol Co-ordination Unit, said that he can also see how, since the recession began, “it’s harder to put off the inevitable collapse around mounting debts because of drug abuse”.Mr Keane added that the other impact which has been observed is  that the “market for illegal drugs has contracted. This may be due to the recreational, weekend drug users cutting back”. The type of drugs being used by clients of the unit has also changed, with a drop-off in numbers using heroin from November of last year until August of this year.“Users are reporting that heroin was harder to get during that period but it seems to be becoming more freely available again,” he told the Limerick Post. From just a handful of users a decade ago, there are now 96 people attending clinics for heroin abuse in Limerick with a further 101 clients attending their GP’s.But by far the largest problem, according to both centres, is the abuse of alcohol, with the abuse of benzodiazepin (antidepressants) also widespread.
