Andrew Murray, Jeremy Corbyn’s longtime friend and adviser, ticks off a list of foreign causes that the Labour leader has pursued over almost half a century: Chile, South Africa, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, among others. For Murray, it is an honourable record, and one that has been distorted or lost amid the abuse and vilification Corbyn has faced since he stood for the Labour leadership in 2015. The Labour leader has been accused of racism and antisemitism; of being too close to the men of violence. During last year’s general election campaign, the Daily Mail, under the headline “Apologists for terror”, said Corbyn “personally has spent a political lifetime courting mass murderers in the Middle East, Ireland and elsewhere in the world”. Returning to the theme this week, newspaper articles have implied – in a story subsequently disputed – that Corbyn had paid homage in 2014 to Black September, the Palestinian group responsible … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn’s foreign causes: a blessing or a curse?

Picture: Министерски съвет JB: Thank you very much for taking the time to chat with us this afternoon. Of course we are in Brussels and Mr. Zuckerberg was here in Brussels only a couple of days ago doing his first testimony in Europe since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke. Can I just ask you what you thought of the hearing and how he performed? AA: We had meeting with Mr Zuckerberg and Mrs Sheryl Sandberg in California just a couple of weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure I got much more information than people got during this very short hearing here in Brussels. But I think it was nice to be here and to take those questions in the European Parliament. I got the feeling that Facebook is taking all those issues conducted with privacy of our people very seriously. Today we have some problems, some bad people, they know how to use social media channels to manipulate with public opinion, … [Read more...] about CNBC Interview with Andrus Ansip, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Single Market
When 38 people suffered heroin-related deaths in Llanelli in a 42-month period, the scale of the drug problem in the town came into stark spotlight. The shocking figure was released during the trial of an organised gang of 28 who, between them, brought large amounts of drugs into the town. Thanks to a major investigation by Dyfed-Powys Police’s serious and organised crime team , called Operation Ulysses, the gang are now serving prison sentences. But while it may have had a significant impact on the drug supply chain in Llanelli, the problem has not vanished. Just this week a business owner in Llanelli town centre, who did not want to be named, claimed he bore witness to a drug deal taking place ‘in broad daylight’ between the St Elli Shopping Centre and the town’s multi-storey car park, and this sighting is not in isolation. Six drugs-related incidents were reported to police in Llanelli town centre in January this year, according to the website police.uk. … [Read more...] about Places in Llanelli where drug crimes take place, often in broad daylight
Author: ECB. The following press release was issued by the ECB on January 20, 2017 00:00. Introductory statement by Benoît Cœuré, Member of the Executive Board of the ECB, at the session “Revitalizing the Global Economy”,Davos, 20 January 2017 The panel’s main theme is the question of how can we boost productivity and economic growth in the long-term. This is a topic that matters for central banks. Long-term growth rates are important for interest-rate setting since they influence and define equilibrium real interest rates in the economy. And policymakers taking the question seriously will help dispel misplaced expectations that monetary policy can create sustainable long-term growth. When it comes to economic growth, it is always useful to go back to the textbook and conduct simple growth accounting decompositions. By definition, growth in output per capita equals growth in labour productivity plus growth in hours worked per capita. In many advanced … [Read more...] about Speech Benoît Cœuré: Productivity and Growth: Innovation and Diffusion
