The messaging app has said it is looking to recruit 100 members of staff for the new base. But industry groups have warned the measures could have a disproportionate impact on the UK’s tech sector, as well as serious implications for freedom of expression.

However, Facebook’s expansion in London is the latest vote of confidence in the capital as a global tech hub. “Safety is our top priority at Facebook and over the last two years we’ve substantially increased our investment in this area,” said Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook’s vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

first_imgThe foreign secretary made the announcement on Monday morning as he set out his so-called “Brexit delivery plan” in a bid to show he was serious about walking away from the talks with Brussels. Jeremy Hunt would decide on 30 September whether to take the UK out of the EU without a deal if he was Prime Minister, he has revealed. Owen Bennett “If my judgement is that is not the case, talks will stop and we will put our heads down and focus on no deal.” whatsapp In an ambitious move, Hunt would give himself just three weeks to secure a new deal with the EU after MPs return from the summer recess.

If not, it will all be needed to plug the hole a No Deal Brexit will make in the public finances.” Share Hunt responded to Hammond’s tweet by arguing he would be using the ‘fiscal firepower’ exactly as the chancellor intended – to boost the economy in case of a no deal Brexit. Hunt claimed he was able to make spending commitments in case of a no deal Brexit because of the “headroom” in the UK’s finances. He said: “I will start engaging with the European Union straight away throughout August, then when we have published our plan for a deal that we think will get through parliament by the end of August we will start formal negotiations in September.  Jeremy Hunt sets 30 September as no-deal Brexit ‘D-Day’ whatsappcenter_img To ensure the UK is ready for a no deal outcome, Hunt said he would cancel all civil service leave throughout August, create a special task force similar to those formed in times of national emergencies, and start preparing a “No Deal Brexit Budget” to prepare the economy. “This won’t be something that the European Union are seeing for the first time, but yes there is a hard deadline in what I said.  Corporation tax would be slashed to 12.5%, and billions would be pumped into sectors predicted to suffer the most in a no-deal scenario – such as farming and fishing. LONDON, ENGLAND – JULY 01: Foreign Secretary and Conservative leadership contender, Jeremy Hunt leaves his London residence on July 1, 2019 in London, England. Mr Hunt is due to speak at the Policy Exchange later today as he continues his campaign to become the leader of the Conservative party and the next British Prime Minister. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images) However, Hunt argued in his speech that this money would be available in the case of a no deal Brexit, something which Hammond disputes. “We spent just over £1 trillion bailing out the banks after the financial crisis. So if we did it for the bankers then why wouldn’t we do it what is needed for our fishermen and our farmers now?” he said. He said: “I think what Philip Hammond was talking about was the headroom that he has built up, and is jealously guarding at the moment, is headroom that is there to deal with the eventuality of a no-deal Brexit. “So I was very explicit yesterday that some of my other spending plans, more money for education, for example, things I passionately want to do, they will take longer to do in a no-deal situation because our immediate priority is going to be to support businesses that are directly affected by a dramatic change in our economic circumstances.” Chancellor Philip Hammond announced in March the government had a £26.6billion of spending firepower available if the UK was able to secure a withdrawal deal with the EU. “By the end of September I, as Prime Minister, will make a judgement as to whether there is a realistic prospect of a deal that can get through parliament in the short term.  The leadership hopeful justified ploughing money into those industries by comparing a no deal Brexit with 2008 financial crash.

first_imgAccording to a report from the meeting, union bosses believe “any final Labour deal should then be put back to the people.” Owen Bennett Tuesday 9 July 2019 11:58 am “In those circumstances, I want to make it clear that Labour would campaign for Remain against either No Deal or a Tory deal that does not protect the economy and jobs.” His email read: “Whoever becomes the new Prime Minister should have the confidence to put their deal, or No Deal, back to the people in a public vote. “We’ll decide our policy when the election comes,” he said, adding: “But at this moment we will do everything we can to prevent no deal and give people a choice whether it’s that or remain within the EU.” Labour would back Remain in second Brexit referendum held under a Tory government whatsapp However, the message made no mention of what Labour would do should it win power before Brexit is resolved – despite unions affiliated to the party calling for the Corbyn to back a referendum in those circumstances. Jeremy Corbyn has so far resisted calls for a general election (Getty Images) In an interview with the BBC, Corbyn confirmed the party would not clarify its position on whether to back a referendum should it win power until a general election was on the horizon. Labour would campaign for Remain in a second Brexit referendum was held under a Conservative government, but Jeremy Corbyn has not said what he would do if he becomes Prime Minister. The announcement comes less that 24 hours after trade unions affiliated to Labour called on the party to back a second referendum even if it wins power. Instead, the Labour leader indicated he still believes his party’s Brexit policy – which includes signing the UK up to a customs union with the EU whilst somehow retaining an independent trade policy – “could bring the country together.” Following a meeting of the shadow cabinet on Tuesday morning, Corbyn emailed all party members to announce Labour would back staying in the EU in another public vote, if no deal and the agreement struck by the Conservatives were the other options on the ballot paper. “The Labour Party’s campaign position on such a ballot should depend on the deal negotiated,” according to the report, meaning the party could urge voters not to support the agreement it had secured with the EU. whatsapp More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org Former Labour MP Chuka Umunna, who has now joined the Lib Dems, said: “Yet another fudge, where the Labour leadership keep open the door to standing on a pro-Brexit platform in a General Election or supporting it in government.“ The ballot paper should be the options of accepting Labour’s deal or remaining in the EU. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likebonvoyaged.comThese Celebs Are Complete Jerks In Real Life.bonvoyaged.comPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

first_img whatsapp Thursday 28 November 2019 12:45 am Harry Robertson The report will raise questions not just about about the honesty of the parties but also about the sort of detailed costings they have produced, given how uncertain predicting future spending and revenue is. Both Labour and the Conservatives are already on track to break their spending rules due to uncosted promises made in their manifestos, according to the Resolution Foundation think tank. The two main parties have both changed their so-called fiscal rules to allow more government spending, but say they will balance day-to-day spending with receipts by the end of parliament. Resolution Foundation research director James Smith said Labour and the Tories were “right to have adopted new approaches that avoid some of the pitfalls of previous narrow focuses on debt levels”. whatsapp Labour and Tories already on track to break spending rules, says report Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org The Conservatives also look set to break their spending pledges, the report said, as the party’s manifesto does not include any funding for their goal of raising the national insurance payment threshold to £12,500. The Institute for Fiscal Studies said this could cost £10bn a year. However, the Resolution Foundation has said in a report that both are on track to breach their rules “even before the ink on them is dry”, with Labour almost certain to cross its limit. The Conservative party’s fiscal rule to balance spending by 2023 “has an 86 per cent chance of being wiped out, given the pattern of historic errors in forecasting the current balance three-years ahead,” the report said. The Tories’ planned extra investment spending – which is much smaller than Labour’s – is likely to add £1bn a year to spending due to interest payments and depreciation. Both parties would increase spending but Labour’s plans are far more radical (ITV via Getty Images) The Resolution Foundation said Labour’s promise to compensate women affected by the rise in the state pension age could add £12bn to current spending, but is not included in its sums. “However, the parties seem all too willing to bend or even break their own fiscal rules before they’ve even got started. Both parties have failed to account for the wider costs of their very significant investment programmes.” Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell said: “This report is inaccurate in its description of Labour’s position. Our investment programme, supported by a fiscal rule which aims to leave the government better off, means depreciation of existing assets will be lower under Labour.” Read more: Conservative manifesto: How will Boris Johnson tax and spend? It also said Labour has failed to account for £10bn of interest and depreciation costs that would come along with its planned £400bn of investment over 10 years.

first_imgIt’s difficult to see how this could be predicted, especially under a points-based Australia-style system that the Tories want to introduce, unless the government were to set a cap and stick by it. It now trails the NHS, crime, and the economy, despite having been at the front of the pack just a few years before. While it may not be a top priority in this election cycle, the immigration debate is far from over in the UK, and there are major questions to be answered — especially in a post-Brexit scenario. Standing on the sidelines is no position for future leaders to take. Polling from FTI Research predicts the Conservatives primary vote will fall from 42.4 per cent in 2017 to 40 per cent in tomorrow’s General Election. (ITV via Getty Images) Kate AndrewsKate Andrews is associate director at the Institute of Economic Affairs. Perhaps their dithering on the topic reflects that the public isn’t as concerned about immigration anymore. While it was the major issue on the public’s mind leading up to the referendum, the Ipsos Mori Issues Index shows how the topic has plummeted in importance since the vote to leave the EU.  whatsapp But not on every issue. Much of the tactic in public policy debate has been to swerve or avoid detail. In some areas, policy lines have been muddled completely. Labour and the Tories are sweeping immigration under the rug this election whatsapp While the system will be facing a massive overhaul if Brexit is delivered, the Conservatives know that immigration is necessary for tax revenue, to pay for the pension and healthcare promises they made to the public. Meanwhile, Labour knows that efforts to tackle poverty and create meaningful opportunities for a better life are issues that transcend borders.  And no area stands out more obviously than immigration, a huge issue during the Brexit referendum that has now been shoved under the rug by the two major parties. While Boris Johnson has signalled that he’ll move away from arbitrary caps on migration (and recently made it easier for foreign graduates at UK universities to stay and work for up to two years), chief secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak also used the ITV debate to reveal that immigration figures would drop under a Conservative premiership.  But I suspect the silence is more reflective of a cowardliness in the two main parties to make the liberal case for immigration, from both the economic and ethical points of view. center_img The Conservatives aren’t dallying on the UK’s exit from the European Union. The Labour Party is offering more taxes and borrowing to turbo-charge public spending. The offers are clear — like them or loathe them. Friday 6 December 2019 10:02 am This election season is slogan heavy. “Get Brexit done.” “For the many, not the few.” While necessarily vague, this year’s party mottos have done a decent job of getting to the heart of their offers.  Opinion Share Labour seemed to have dodged the question completely by linking the immigration debate to a second referendum. As articulated by Labour’s Richard Burgon during the ITV election debate last Sunday, it will be a decision for voters to make second time round, with the party trying to stay as far away from making a definitive case for more or less migration.  Yet it’s been left to the smaller parties, like the Liberal Democrats, to make those harder but vitally necessary arguments. The status of migrants and refugees (particularly the latter group’s ability to work in the UK and contribute) has a home in some manifestos this election cycle, but not the major ones. It is a far cry from a policy stance to say that it will be determined by a myriad of moving parts sometime in the following year.  But meanwhile, the Conservatives can’t seem to decide how closely they will align themselves with Theresa May’s era of hostile immigration policy.  Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily FunnyUndoFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatterUndoNoteableyJulia Robert’s Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableyUndozenherald.comDolly Finally Took Off Her Wig, Fans Gaspedzenherald.comUndoMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStoryUndoNinjaJournalistMichael Jordan’s Divorce Settlement Has Finally Been Revealed.NinjaJournalistUndoPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
