KCS-content whatsapp Yeo said BP was the “unwitting victim” of US domestic politics after Hayward told the parliamentary committee that the failings which caused the spill were not particular to the company he heads.“It’s been easy for some parties to suggest that this is a problem with BP. I emphatically do not believe that that is the case,” the outgoing chief executive said.Hayward denied that there was any link between the accident and previous safety lapses at BP such as a 2005 refinery blast that killed 15 workers.“It’s very dangerous to join up dots that may not be appropriate to join up,” he said.Hayward said the decision of rivals such as Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil to criticise it in the wake of the disaster reflected the political climate in the United States at the time, rather than because of BP operating outside industry norms, as the companies said.Hayward received a less confrontational treatment from the committee than he received from a US Congressional committee. His appearance came on the same day regulators criticised BP for its safety training regime in the North Sea.Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors found the company lacked a clear chain of command for dealing with a loss of well control on a North Sea oil rig – three months before a blow-out in the Gulf of Mexico caused America’s worst ever oil spill. In a letter HSE said to BP that there was “evidence of a culture among your contractors, Seawell (up to senior levels of management), of working outside of procedures, permit or permit conditions”. last_img read more

It would be the first time that the department store has opened stores outside city centre or shopping centre sites. In October 2007 it was reported to have been considering opening smaller format stores called HOF.According to reports this week the department store is considering opening in locations with the correct catchment area where it doesn’t already have a town or shopping centre store. The size and format is not clear although Debenhams and John Lewis have both opened smaller store formats to combat the mothballing of property deals in town centres.House of Fraser recently launched plans to breathe new life into the Biba label, which it bought in November last year. Biba concessions will open in 61 House of Fraser stores nationwide by Spring. House of Fraser will look to return the brand to its roots, described by chief executive John King as “fashionable clothing at an affordable price”. whatsappcenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Calling the government’s deficit reduction plan “appropriately ambitious” the IMF report said: “The government’s strong and credible multi-year fiscal deficit reduction plan is essential to ensure debt sustainability.” It added the plan “greatly reduces the risk of a costly loss of confidence in public finances and supports a balanced recovery.” Fiscal tightening would dampen short-term growth, said the report, but not stop it as other sectors of the economy emerged as drivers of recovery, supported by continued monetary stimulus.The backing of the IMF will come as a huge vindication of chancellor George Osborne’s proposals to cut public spending by £83bn in order to get the £155bn budget deficit under control. The chancellor will reveal where the cuts will come when he announces the results of the comprehensive spending review on 20 October.The chancellor welcomed the IMF report saying: “They have made it pretty clear that the deficit reduction plan that we have set out is essential for bringing about sustainability in our budget. It reminds us that if we divert from the course the new government has set out then we really will be heading back into a disastrous period of economic instability for Britain.”The report puts the new Labour leader, Ed Miliband, under immediate pressure ahead of his conference speech today. Earlier this week the Labour leader described the government’s policies as “economically dangerous” and called for deficit reduction “at a cautious pace in a way that is going to help our economy, not hinder it”.But while there were risks to economic recovery given the “continued fragility of confidence and “signs of renewed housing market weakness,” the IMF predicted GDP growth would be two per cent in 2011, rising gradually to 2.5 per cent the following year. Inflation should also fall back to the government’s two per cent target by early 2012.In another boost for the government the IMF said financial sector reform ”would be crucial to move to a safer system that featured stronger capital and liquidity buffers, supported by tighter regulation and supervision.

The annual allowance, three-year carry forward, exclusion of ill-health retirement, and protection for deferred pensioners are sensible improvements.JOHN MORET | SUFFOLK LIFEThe number of people who will be affected by this across the industry is actually very small ?– much less than one per cent. There were no great surprises for us.

David Cameron, who is trying to draw a line under last week’s spending review, will say a “new economic dynamism” can create jobs and growth even as cuts start to bite.“These centres will sit between universities and businesses, bringing the two together. They won’t just carry out their own in-house research, they will spread knowledge too, connecting businesses – large and small, new and old – to potential new technologies, making them aware of funding streams and providing access to skills and equipment,” he is expected to say. The centres have been based on a model proposed by James Dyson, the vacuum cleaner designer, and entrepreneur Hermann Hauser, a key figure in Cambridge’s technology community. Each centre will focus on a different area of cutting edge technology. Although plans have yet to be finalised, one TIC is likely to focus on plastic electronics, while others will concentrate on regenerative medicine and future internet technologies. Meanwhile, Cameron will also pledge to spend £200bn on Britain’s infrastructure, including money already pledged in the spending review coupled with investment from the private sector.

BBVA suffers fall in profits

first_imgWednesday 27 October 2010 8:14 pm BANCO Bilbao Vizcaya Agentaria (BBVA), Spain’s second-biggest bank, reported a 17.4 per cent drop in third quarter net profit yesterday as provisions for bad loans weighed on results.It said net profits in the three months to 30 September hit €1.14bn (£996m) compared to €1.38bn at the same time last year.During the first nine months of the year BBVA posted a net profit of €3.67bn, a 12.2-per cent fall on the previous earnings for the period a year earlier. BBVA’s president Angel Cano Fernandez admitted there were “uncertainties” to overcome in terms of the stability of the economic recovery but insisted BBVA’S business model would enable it to survive in the current environment.The bank set aside provisions for potential loans going bad during the third quarter of €233m, although this was less than the €260m it set aside in the previous quarter.Bad loans as a proportion of total lending continued to fall slightly to 4.1 per cent in the third quarter from 4.2 per cent in the previous quarter and 4.3 per cent during the first three months of the year.

The world’s largest betting website said it had sold 16.2m shares in the offering, excluding an overallotment option, or 15.2 per cent of the company. It had offered the shares at 1,100-1,400p.It also launched a majority-owned trading service, LMAX, which opened for business this week. It offers contracts for difference on US and European share indices, commodities and UK gilts. The platform adopts its parent’s model as a peer-to-peer exchange rather than a traditional broker.

BoE says it can’t predict slumps as Posen warns of more pain to come

first_img BoE says it can’t predict slumps as Posen warns of more pain to come KCS-content Wednesday 27 October 2010 8:52 pm THE Bank of England cannot predict major recessions with any “precision”, the deputy governor admitted yesterday. Conceding that the Bank failed to forecast the “great contraction” of 2008 and 2009, Charles Bean said that only policy-induced recessions, such as those introduced to reduce inflation, were predictable, while in other cases the best policymakers can hope for is to “be more alert to the vulnerabilities” building up to a crisis.Bean’s frank comments to the Royal Statistical Society came as fellow MPC member Adam Posen warned of further pain ahead for the UK economy. In an interview with The Times, Posen said that the coalition’s deficit-cutting plans will deliver a “material” hit to British economic growth over the next two years. whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img whatsapp Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
