Labour makes tax promise

first_img whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Monday 11 October 2010 12:05 am whatsapp Labour makes tax promise ED Miliband yesterday promised there would be no new personal tax rises if Labour wins the next election.His pledge, which has echoes of Tony Blair’s famous promise not to hike income tax, comes as the new Labour leader tries to appeal to thecentre ground.“I’m not proposing rises in personal taxation beyond those set out by Alistair Darling, certainly not” he said in an interview yesterday.Miliband also confirmed he would oppose government plans to scrap child benefit for those paying the higher rate of income tax.He said: “I think we have a mix of universal benefits that go to everybody, in the case of child benefit to recognise the importance of the family.”Asked if he thought a millionaire should receive child benefit, hereplied: “I’m in favour of that, yes.”Although Miliband said there would be no rise in personal taxation, he has said the 50p top rate should become a permanent feature of the tax code. And yesterday he repeated calls for an additional bank levy to help reduce the deficit. He said: “If we can get more from the banks in a higher bank levy to protect ordinary families… we should do.” 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 Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Malta court sides with trade union, puts NetEnt layoffs on hold

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Europe Southern Europe Malta Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “The GWU decried NetEnt and Evolution Gaming’s anti-union tactics, which it contends are intended to prevent an effective consultation of employees at a critical moment when they are facing potential redundancy days before Christmas,” it said. The union added that it believed the failure to consult it was a deliberate action to limit employees’ abilities to exercise their rights as they faced redundancy. Email Address Rather than consulting the union, the GWU said the business appointed its own “employee representative. The GWU said this representative “was dismissive of the employees’ pleas”. 11th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: People Live dealer Slots HR People moves Malta court sides with trade union, puts NetEnt layoffs on hold Tags: Layoffs NetEnt Evolution The GWU added that employees were only notified of the layoffs last week, and that some said  they were “escorted out of their place of work that same day by the new owners”. The court sided with the GWU’s request to grant an injunction, meaning the layoffs will be at least put on hold until a hearing on 17 December. However, this week the General Workers’ Union – which is Malta’s largest trade union and represents the majority of NetEnt’s Malta employees – declared an industrial dispute related to the layoffs and threatened industrial action. It said the businesses failed to acknowledge it as an employee representative for planned layoffs. “Thanks to the Court’s intervention following our urgent request, 324 illegal dismissals have now been put on hold,” a GWU representative said. “We will continue to insist that NetEnt and Evolution Gaming honour their consultation obligations in full, and we will do our utmost to ensure that jobs are saved, and, where that is not possible, that appropriate compensation is paid.” This, it said, would be in violation of both Malta’s Collective Redundancies (Protection of Employment) Regulations – which state “the employer proposing to declare the collective redundancy has the duty to notify in writing the employees’ representatives” – and the Transfer of Business (Protection of Employment) Regulations, which offers additional protections for merger-related layoffs. Last week, Evolution announced that it has begun to integrate NetEnt in the wake of its SEK19.60bn (£1.72bn/€1.91bn/$2.30bn) deal for the slot specialist, agreed in June. This will see it make €30m of cost-cutting measures, including 324 layoffs in Malta.  Malta’s Superior Court has issued an injunction against NetEnt, blocking the supplier from making layoffs connected to its acquisition by live dealer giant Evolution, following an industrial dispute from labour union the General Workers Union (GWU).

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Enter Your Email Address Automotive shares are cyclical as they usually advance or decline with the broader economy. And according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the carmakers’ trade body, UK new car sales were down 89% in May as the stay-at-home economy hit car sales.Yet as of 1 June, car showrooms, as well as many other businesses, in England reopened. In recent weeks, optimism understandably had a positive effect on broader equity markets as well as the Aston Martin (LSE: AML) stock price, despite last week’s dips. Therefore, today I’d like to discuss whether you should consider adding car stocks like AML to your long-term portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Sought after luxury brandFTSE 250 member Aston Martin had its initial public offering (IPO) in October 2018. But the luxury carmaker’s stock market debut has been disappointing as the share price has been in steady decline ever since — that is, until the past four weeks.In mid-May the high-end sports car manufacturer released disappointing Q1 results. Analysts raised eyebrows as the group reported declining sales and ballooning losses. Sales in China were extremely disappointing, down 86% year-on-year. Management also pulled full-year guidance.Following the trading update, AML shares hit an all-time low 27.5p. But then investors started flocking to the stock. Many think the new CEO Tobias Mober, ex-chief executive of Mercedes-AMG (the performance arm of Daimler), can drive a turnaround. As I write, the share are hovering at 71p. Put another way, if you had been brave enough to invest £1,000 in Aston Martin a month ago, your investment would now be worth over £2,500.So would I invest in Aston Martin stock now? It’s both a car company and a luxury brand. Therefore, its fortunes are tied to the economy not only domestically, but also in markets like China. But I do think a turnaround is possible. So I’d wait for a pullback in the share price, possibly towards 60p or even lower before I’d buy. Aston Martin is a sought-after luxury brand. I’d buy the dips.Other car industry sharesThe car industry is a large part of our economy. Britain’s leading stock index, the FTSE 100, offers several possibilities for investors to consider. Many of our readers will be familiar with Auto Trader, which operates the UK’s largest digital automotive marketplace. The group specialises in both second-hand and new car sales, including those sold by private sellers and trade dealers. The law says that you must normally have at least third-party motor insurance if you drive or own a vehicle. And that is why insurers, such as Admiral Group, Aviva, and Legal & General could be the next group of stocks to consider. Melrose Industries, another FTSE 100 member, specialises in acquiring and improving underperforming businesses. It owns GKN Automotive, which delivers mass production solutions for mobility. FTSE 250 and AIM stocksInvestors can also find several other companies that are FTSE 250 or AIM-listed. AIM is the London Stock Exchange’s market for smaller companies. National car dealerships and retailers, such as Cambria Automobiles, Lookers, Marshall Motor Holdings, Pendragon, and Vertu Motors offer another way to invest in the industry.Finally, are you instead looking for global automotive distribution, retail, and services companies with UK headquarters? Then Inchcape may well fit the bill. It generates over two-thirds of its operating profit from emerging markets. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

George Pisi’s brutal blindside hit on Nick Abendanon in Challenge Cup Final

first_imgWednesday May 28, 2014 George Pisi’s brutal blindside hit on Nick Abendanon in Challenge Cup Final Nick Abendanon played his final game for Bath in the 30-16 Amlin Challenge Cup final loss to Northampton Saints. The nuggety fullback has racked up a huge amount of Bath caps, and during that time has been on the receiving end of a fair share of big hits.ADVERTISEMENTEngland capped Abendanon missed out on a fairytale farewell in his final game before joining Clermont Auvergne. The 27-year-old found himself in an unfortunate position early in the second half as turnover ball went his way, but he had his back turned to Samoan hitman, George Pisi.It was a brutal hit, but as we’ve come to expect from the tough as nails fullback, he got back up. Former Saints flyhalf Ryan Lamb made a pretty accurate observation about it on twitter.It’s not the first time that Pisi has smashed Abendanon. A few years back the Bath back made a big hit of his own, but then later in the game Pisi came flying in with a massive crash tackle.In 2010 he couldn’t get up straight away when George Stowers floored him with a flailing forearm, and then a year later against Leicester Tigers, it was a Tuilagi nightmare of epic proportions.Both Manu and Alesana knocked him about, and as if that wasn’t enough, he then received a big tackle from a Tongan, Steve Mafi. His courage to keep getting up was hugely admirable.ADVERTISEMENTClermont are getting a gutsy player, who will cope with some of the rough stuff that the highly competitive Top 14 brings. Bath fans will miss him. As will all the Samoans in the Premiership.“It’s meant a huge amount to be here a decade. I’ve loved it – it’s been a great ride,” he said.

Close to everything yet quiet. That’s what it means to live in “old” South Pankow, directly on the border of Prenzlauer Berg. The area around Vinetastrasse from Thulestrasse to Wisbyer Strasse has developed considerably in recent years, today forming a mixture of modern buildings and buildings from the Gründerzeit, Berlin’s “founding era”. Most of the buildings are perimeter block developments, surrounded by a historic stock of trees.Save this picture!© Simon MengesThe “Thulekiez” is a calm, relaxing neighbourhood, which nevertheless offers considerable opportunities for creative design. The “th62” project was built on a former commercial site within the residential area, and adds six new free-standing structures to Thulestrasse that, in their unusual arrangement, create new relationships to the surroundings and offer new qualities of open space. The ensemble’s confident presence in its urban environment lends it a strong identity, while simultaneously engaging in a dialogue with its environment.Save this picture!Urban Concept and Architecture. The 17,000-square-meter property was developed beginning in 2011 until the granting of planning permission by the Berlin-based project development group SmartHoming GmbH and the architecture firm zanderrotharchitekten to be an ensemble of six identical residential buildings. In 2017, UBM Development Deutschland GmbH acquired the property and completed the project according to the plans by zanderrotharchitekten.Save this picture!© Simon MengesThe six free-standing structures are located in a park-like, car-free, 11,000-square-meter urban landscape that opens up to the sky in all directions. Thanks to their offset positioning, the buildings enjoy optimal lighting conditions and a flowing transition between gardens and living spaces. Floor-to-ceiling wooden windows create an unusual relationship between the light-filled apartments and the urban landscape surrounding the buildings.

Inside and outside intermesh to form a single space.Save this picture!© Simon MengesSave this picture!Save this picture!© Simon MengesA sizable garden surrounds the buildings, and one accesses the buildings from inside the property. In the outdoor spaces, carefully designed recreation areas and children’s playgrounds are an invitation to linger. The sense of openness that reigns is an inviting and unifying alternative to the dense Gründerzeit neighbourhood beyond, to the closed-off gaps of the classic Berlin block. Here, the residential buildings are integrated into the landscape.Save this picture!© Simon MengesThe residential ensemble is characterized by its “vertical gardens,” which lend the buildings a highly unusual atmosphere. The open wooden facade behind the gardens, structured with outcroppings and recesses and constructed from thermo-pine, allows a maximum amount of light to penetrate inside while creating a high degree of privacy for the individual living units. The recesses form spacious balconies, and a total of 2,460 large green planters are integrated into the roof surfaces and terraces that encircle the buildings.Save this picture!© Simon MengesThis creates private, vertical gardens in the middle of the city, which improve the micro-climate of the apartments and balconies. Each building is accessed via a spacious atrium with natural light from above and an open staircase. The buildings each have 66 different living units with varying floor plans, from 1.5-room apartments with 43 square meters of living space, to penthouse apartments with 209 square meters. The ample floor plans can be combined flexibly in a modular fashion to create apartments with up to 5 rooms. The buildings thus allow for both small units suitable for singles and seniors, and large units suitable for families (once combined).Save this picture!© Simon MengesAll six buildings can be reached from the underground garage, which has 221 parking spaces and 792 bicycle spaces, arranged in a two-story bicycle parking system.

Students fight creation of private police force

first_imgJohns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels sent an email to students on March 5 detailing the school’s path to “establishing a university police department, specifically trained to meet the unique needs of a university environment.” Sen. Joan Carter Conway has proposed a bill in the Maryland Legislature — spearheaded by the Johns Hopkins administration — which would allow private universities in Baltimore to institute their own private police forces.This news was met with enormous opposition by students, many of whom view the creation of a private university police department as a way to further entrench white supremacy on campus — and endanger Black, Brown, queer and trans students, and community members. This news follows the announcement that Melissa R. Hyatt, the former Baltimore Police Department head of Homeland Security, would be named head of security for Hopkins’ undergraduate and medical campuses.The Baltimore Police Department has a long history of racial profiling and unrestrained brutality against Black and Brown people. The creation of this private police force would only serve to increase these attacks on oppressed people.Johns Hopkins University has also been the primary engine driving gentrification and displacement in Baltimore through the school’s “Live Near Your Work” program for faculty and staff. This has led to displacement of working-class Black and Brown Baltimoreans from their neighborhoods, such as Remington — which is directly south of the university’s Homewood undergraduate campus — and areas in East Baltimore, which are directly adjacent to Hopkins’ medical campus. The university is systematically gentrifying and encroaching upon these neighborhoods.Because this private police force would “strengthen public safety in and around our campuses,” as university President Daniel’s email states, areas of Baltimore bordering the campuses would be patrolled by police with even less accountability to them than the corrupt Baltimore Police Department.The university has a history of not paying its workers a living wage. Cafeteria and sanitation workers, security guards and the school’s other subcontracted workers receive unjust, low salaries and are quite often forced to live in poverty because of these unlivable wages. If the school has enough money to create, hire, train and pay an entirely new police force, then it surely has sufficient funds to pay a living wage to its subcontracted workers.Students say: ‘More community, fewer cops!’For these reasons and many more, university students say this decision is dangerous and irresponsible. So they formed a coalition called Students against Private Police, comprised of a variety of student groups, including the Black Student Union and leftist, environmental and LGBTQ organizations.SAPP organized its first action on March 8 — a rally on a busy spot outside the university’s main library. Speakers from many student groups, as well as community activist Rev. C.D. Witherspoon, talked about why this initiative would be disastrous for Hopkins and the Baltimore communities. Students carried handmade signs with slogans like “Not Tryna Get Shot!” ”More Community, Fewer Cops!” “Who R U Here to ‘Protect’?” “Cops Don’t Make Us Safer!” and “Pepper Spray Me!”Following the rally, students chanted while marching through Gilman Hall, one of the busiest study spaces on campus. They made their way to President Daniels’ mansion, where they expressed their anger by chanting outside his front door. Over 100 students participated, as well as some influential members of community organizations.SAPP’s next action took place March 11, when students phonebanked at several Hopkins’ graduate and undergraduate campuses. They called Maryland representatives, demanding they vote against this horrible bill.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
