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.

Emily Nicolle The number of European banks reporting a negative outlook for 2020 has risen significantly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, as the global economy struggles to survive its impact. However the latest data from the government, released last week, showed the number of applications approved by lenders so far remains low, lingering around the 50 per cent mark.  “However for most banks, core profitability will only rise if they can overhaul infrastructure and delivery, and if their stakeholders are willing to go forward with industry consolidation.” (Getty Images) Also Read: Nearly half of European banks hold a negative profit outlook Monday 6 July 2020 2:03 pm The weight of geographical distribution of those with negative outlooks is uneven, with some countries holding more banks with negative outlooks than others. As banks were forced to set aside higher provisions to account for the pandemic, a quarter of the top 35 European banks reported a loss for the first quarter. The rest saw pre-tax profit decline by a third on average year on year, S&P said. However there were some positive outcomes emerging from the outbreak, as banks explore new ways of working and customers begin to interact with digital products more frequently.

first_imgJuneau | Politics | Southcentral | State GovernmentHouse appointee’s oath of office stirs confusion among state lawmakersJanuary 16, 2019 by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO and Alaska Public Media Share:Sharon Jackson is Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s pick to fill a vacant Eagle River House seat. She took an apparently unofficial oath of office Wednesday that preceded the House cancelling its floor session. (Photo by Leila Kheiry/KRBD)The second day of the legislative session Wednesday took an unusual turn.A day after the Alaska House of Representatives became stuck on how to swear Sharon Jackson into office, Jackson tried to take matters into her own hands.Jackson walked across the street from the Alaska State Capitol in Juneau to the Dimond Courthouse, where she took what appeared to be an unofficial “oath of office.”Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were caught off guard when Anchorage Republican Rep. Joshua Revak posted a two-minute video on social media of the oath.(Source: Rep. Josh Revak’s Facebook page)Republican leader Dave Talerico issued a written statement.“While the sentiment of this effort to get Ms. Jackson seated quickly is appreciated, the House Republicans anticipate the official swearing-in of Ms. Jackson to take place on the House floor,” Talerico said.Talerico said House Republicans look forward to welcoming Jackson to the body as soon as possible.Rep. Bryce Edgmon, a Dillingham Democrat, said there were productive talks before the unofficial oath.“What happened today with what’s essentially, I would call a prank of sorts, just became a distraction to all of that,” he said.Edgmon said the Legislature’s nonpartisan legal advisers say Jackson’s oath on Wednesday won’t count. Edgmon said she should be sworn in after there’s a temporary speaker.The video of Jackson’s unofficial oath starts with an introduction by Wasilla Republican Rep. David Eastman.Eastman later said Jackson’s constituents are legally and constitutionally entitled to representation.“I find it ironic that now, when it’s time to swear in a representative from the opposing party, suddenly those rules are more important than our state law,” he said of House Democrats.The House cancelled a scheduled floor session on Wednesday. It’s now scheduled to meet Thursday morning.The House has been unable to agree on a temporary speaker to take over for Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer. Normally, a permanent speaker is elected on the first day of the session. But neither side has a majority.Nineteen Republican representatives — as well as Jackson — want a Republican-led majority. Sixteen Democrats — as well as Republicans Louise Stutes and Gabrielle LeDoux, and independent Dan Ortiz — are the remnants of last year’s majority. And Kenai Republican Gary Knopp wants a majority with a balance between the two parties.Share this story:last_img read more

first_imgPublic Safety | State GovernmentGov. Dunleavy vetoes funding for Alaska’s local emergency plannersJuly 10, 2019 by Jacob Resneck, CoastAlaska Share:A young crowd gathers around the earthquake simulator in August 2016 during an emergency preparedness event organized by Juneau’s Local Emergency Planning Committee. Gov. Dunleavy’s veto canceled funding for LEPC causing this year’s expo to be canceled. (Photo by Tripp J Crouse/KTOO)Gov. Mike Dunleavy has eliminated funding for local emergency planners around Alaska.A line item veto deleted $225,000 to be distributed among 21 Local Emergency Planning Committees: local officials and volunteers who plan for disasters and train others in an emergency.“It’s not a tremendous amount of money,” said Juneau’s emergency programs manager Tom Mattice. “But it is the seed money that brings us together to coordinate and organize in a multi-agency fashion to ensure that we’re all on the same page on the day of a big event.”Without the $15,500 in state funding, Juneau’s biannual safety and preparedness expo will be canceled this fall.In rural areas, LEPC members say the lost funding is an even bigger deal.In the city of Craig, Southern Southeast LEPC Chairman Brian Templin says the funding was used to train volunteers across Prince of Wales Island.“For a lot of the rural communities, the LEPC money is the only emergency management or emergency planning money that the community or the region receives,” said Templin, who also works as Craig’s city planner. “So it definitely will have an impact around the state.”A spokesman for the state’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management didn’t respond to requests for comment on Monday or Tuesday.But in filings with the Legislature, the governor’s budget office wrote that the state’s fiscal reality demands cuts across agencies.“Communities can apply for grants through other sources including Department of Commerce Community and Economic Development and the Federal government,” it said.The veto doesn’t erase individual LEPC’s state and federal mandates. That includes logging the location and quantity of hazardous materials in a community in case of a spill or other calamity.“So this is not going to go away,” Mattice said. “We have to do the work. It is a statutory obligation and now unfortunately — it’s simply unfunded.”The Legislature has until Friday to override the governor’s vetoes.Share this story:last_img read more
