Davis set to savage Chequers as May awaits EU verdict on key proposals

EU leaders have gathered in Salzburg (Source: Getty)Under the EU’s plans, Northern Ireland would effectively stay part of the Single Market and customs union if no trade deal is reached between the UK and Brussels by March 2019.The EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has been seeking to “de-dramatise” the row, saying he was “ready to improve” his offer by conceding that customs checks could take place in factories and forecourts away from the British border.However, an ally of May has dismissed this proposal, saying: “There is nothing new here.”The UK’s version of the backstop would use technology to monitor goods moving over the Ireland/UK border without the need for checkpoints or new infrastructure. EU leaders are set to gather without May to discuss the UK’s negotiating plan – dubbed the Chequers agreement – over lunch in Salzburg today.Tusk will then meet May to deliver the verdict on the proposal, which seeks to keep the UK tied to EU rules on goods but not services. The meeting is scheduled to take place just hours after a planned attack on the Chequers agreement by May’s former Brexit secretary, David Davis.At a speech in Munich, Davis is due to brand the plan as “devoid of democracy” and a “non-starter”. Davis quit the government in July in protest at May’s negotiating stance. City A.M. revealed earlier this month he is set to unveil his own Brexit trade plan in the upcoming weeks.In his speech, Davis is expected to say: “At Lancaster and Mansion House, the Prime Minister promised to return control over our law, our money and our borders. These promises were in our manifesto too. But the Chequers plan crosses on all of those red lines. The EU is often correctly described as having a democratic deficit. But Chequers is devoid of democracy altogether.”The political stalemate came as the Bank of England’s chief economist Andy Haldane used a speech in Estonia to warn that “a key theme among companies over recent quarters has been uncertainty surrounding Brexit”. Davis set to savage Chequers as May awaits EU verdict on key proposals An emergency Brexit summit was planned for mid-November as fears grew that an agreement would not be reached by the next get-together of EU leaders in Brussels on 18 October.Speaking on LBC radio last night, Brexit secretary Dominic Raab piled pressure on European leaders with time for a deal running out.Read more: David Davis: Theresa May’s Chequers plan is undemocratic“Now is the moment when the EU needs to shift, I think they understand that,” he said.Raab insisted the UK would be leaving the EU on 29 March 2019 whether a deal was reached or not, and also revealed that while the Cabinet had discussed the possibility of extending the Article 50 negotiation process, it had been dismissed by ministers. whatsapp whatsapp Thursday 20 September 2018 12:28 am Theresa May last night urged EU leaders to stop trying to break up the UK as she warned there were just two months left to strike a Brexit deal.Speaking directly to her counterparts at a dinner in Salzburg last night, the Prime Minister made it clear that if an agreement were not reached by the end of a special Brexit summit pencilled in for mid-November, the UK would not seek to extend the negotiations.

Airbus claims US trade sanctions on its aircraft are excessive

But the amount is currently subject to an arbitration at the WTO which is expected to deliver a verdict in the summer.Airbus spokesperson Rainer Ohler this morning said the plane maker had moved to comply with the “relatively” minor outstanding requirements, adding the $11bn figure touted by Washington was over-the-top. whatsapp He said: “The amount is largely exaggerated and in any case will be defined by the WTO and not the US.”He added that a WTO ruling last week that Airbus’ arch rival Boeing has received tax breaks from the US side gives the EU cause to look for “even greater countermeasures”.The ruling showed “no willingness at all on the Boeing side to comply and confirms they are clearly in contravention with WTO rules,” he said.Read more: Airbus only wins four aircraft orders in first two months of 2019The dispute over subsidies from both sides has been raging for 14 years.US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said: “The time has come for action.

The recent sell-off in HSBC shares seems to be a case of Deja Vu, mirroring the events of 1997-8. HSBC underperformed European banks by 50 per cent over that period on Asian crisis concerns, before outperforming by 86 per cent once investors realised all banks were exposed to emerging market. Berenberg reiterated its “buy” rating.The firm’s results for the year ending June 2015 came in below the expectations of analysts at FinnCap. The market for Petra’s diamonds continues to be weak, with demand hit by the current unsettled economic conditions in China. The US continues to be the strongest market, but demand there is weak. Yet FinnCap reiterated its “buy” recommendation but has put in under review. This is not just any ratings call: Canaccord Genuity has bumped up its “hold” rating for the retail giant to “speculative buy”. Analysts at Canaccord expect the rollercoaster that has been M&S’ share price to continue but said the short-term risk reward looks weighted to the upside. However, they do not yet have sufficient conviction in the company’s long-term fundamentals to move to an unequivocal “buy” recommendation. whatsapp Share Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Clarendon Bauxite Workers are World Leaders

first_imgAdvertisements Clarendon Bauxite Workers are World Leaders MiningSeptember 25, 2009 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister, the Hon. Bruce Golding, has praised workers at Jamalco, in Clarendon, for beating the odds and rising above adverse conditions to make their organisation one of the most productive bauxite/alumina plants in the world.“You would never know how close Jamalco came to closure. Alcoa sent a representative to Jamaica to formally advise me of their intention to close the plant …We worked with them and eventually they confirmed to me that Jamalco would continue full production. The greatest tribute must be paid to the workers. Without the kind of performance that they turned out, all of the efforts would have failed. On the second of June, they had the highest daily production rate in their history,” the Prime Minister said.Speaking at a Town Hall meeting in May pen, Clarendon on September 23, Mr. Golding also made special mention of Jamalco’s General Manager, Mr. Jerome Maxwell, for his exceptional leadership during the worst slump in the bauxite/alumina industry caused by the current global economic downturn.Mr. Golding said that Jamalco employees “have demonstrated that Jamaicans can run an efficient alumina plant and the kind of efficiency that we have seen there is what can be taken to the other plants when the industry begins to recover…They (Jamalco) are now in the (Alcoa) top three in terms of their level of industry. That miraculous turnaround is due to the quality of the workers who have demonstrated that with all the problems that we have, like sprinter, Usain Bolt, we can still be the best in the world.” RelatedClarendon Bauxite Workers are World Leaderscenter_img RelatedClarendon Bauxite Workers are World Leaders RelatedClarendon Bauxite Workers are World Leaderslast_img read more
