As we mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, which was at the time believed at the time to be ‘the war to end all wars’, NICK INMAN argues that it is the EU that has finally preserved peace for the last 73 years. One question should haunt everyone in Europe as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, prepare to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and simultaneously deal with the acrimonious departure of the UK from the EU:How can we ensure that we never reproduce the series of events in January 1933 that led to a boastful, mendacious populist with a minority of seats in parliament to take over a civilized country and provoke a world war?We can start by getting something clear.Both world wars were caused by a clash of nation states that were driven by rivalry and resentment but unable to resolve their differences without deploying armies.The nation state has some fine qualities but its violent … [Read more...] about EU membership is small price for peace

BANK of England governor Mark Carney has warned a "no deal" Brexit outcome could mean house prices in the UK tumble. But are Carney’s doom and gloom predictions likely or is this just another example of Project Fear in action? Will a 'no-deal' Brexit impact house prices? Mark Carney, 53, met with senior ministers on September 13 to discuss the possible outcomes of the UK leaving the European Union without an agreement with Brussels.

The commissioner said the prices displayed to those using the Airbnb website fail to reflect the fees and charges later passed on to the consumer, including cleaning costs. The site did not clearly identify if the offer of accommodation was being made by amateur hosts or professionals. The issue is important because the … [Read more...] about Airbnb warned it breaches EU rules over pricing policy
