Royston Wild | Friday, 27th November, 2020 | More on: MANO POLY It’s clear by now that a no-deal Brexit will have significant ramifications for the domestic economy. This means UK share investors like myself need to be extremely careful before buying for their stocks portfolios.Massive Brexit uncertainty has cost Britain a fortune in lost productivity and delayed investment already. Under all scenarios, the domestic economy will suffer — at least in the short-to-medium term — from the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. However, a no-deal Brexit would deliver a hammerblow and many UK shares will suffer considerably.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Brexit botherBut you don’t just need to take my word for it. Bank of England chief Andrew Bailey laid out the dire consequences of a hard Brexit in comments to MPs this week. Speaking to the Commons Treasury Committee, the big cheese at Threadneedle Street said: “The long-term effects [of a no-deal Brexit], I think, would be larger than the long-term effects of Covid.”Negotiators in London and Brussels have less than five weeks to avoid falling off the Brexit cliff edge. Bickering over key issues like trade standards and fishing continue and the chances of a post-Brexit trade deal failing to materialise are significant.Two UK shares on my ISA radarClearly, Brexit is an issue that UK share investors need to take extremely seriously. But, like the Covid-19 crisis, the consequences of a cliff-edge EU withdrawal won’t stop me for one from continuing to invest in my Stocks and Shares ISA.Here are two UK shares whose profits could soar if a no-deal Brexit occurs in the coming weeks:1) Polymetal InternationalSignificant Brexit uncertainty has been a major driver for precious metals prices in recent times. Gold might have spiked to record peaks above $2,000 per ounce this year because of the Covid-19 crisis. But fears of a disorderly Brexit was helping to sweep bar and coin demand higher before the start of 2020. I reckon it could swing higher again before long too.I’d buy gold mining giant Polymetal International shares to ride this theme. This UK share’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8 times for 2021 offers significant bang for one’s buck. And its 8.2% dividend yield beats the corresponding yields of all but a couple of other FTSE 100 shares.2) Manolete PartnersUnfortunately, the prospect of a no-deal Brexit threatens to do more irreparable damage to British business. But revenues at insolvency litigation financing specialists Manolete Partners are likely to leap under this scenario.The AIM company already has the bit between its teeth following the coronavirus crisis. Revenues and pre-tax profits exploded 153% and 49% respectively in the six months to September. And 2021 looks like it’ll be another big year for Manolete Partners. Today, the UK share trades on a forward P/E ratio of 14 times. I reckon this makes it an attractive buy at current prices.

Butcher and Wright set scene for Highland fling

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scottish fansSCOTLAND UNDER-20 head coach Peter Wright and Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC manager Terry Butcher have joined forces to encourage supporters in the Highlands to sample 6 Nations action close to home when the young Scots play Ireland at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium on Friday 25 February (kick-off 7.30pm, admission FREE).The match will be the second Scotland under-20 fixture to be hosted by the SPL club in as many seasons, with last year’s dramatic draw with France attracting several thousand fans. Butcher today threw his weight behind the game, urging the local rugby public and Inverness CT supporters alike to make it another night to remember.In an exclusive interview with www.scotlandrugbyteam.org, the former England and Rangers captain said: “It’s a real occasion to have rugby in the Highlands, and given the crowd and the warmth you received the last time, it’s great to have you back.  I’m planning to come down and enjoy the game myself before we travel to play Hibs in Edinburgh the following day, and I’d say to people in the surrounding area that it’s something really different to come along and watch rugby here at the stadium.”“It’s a great venue for any sport, be it football or rugby; the pitch is in good condition, and with the way Scotland under-20 play the game and how you look after the pitch afterwards, we’re thrilled to have you back.”Butcher has strong personal rugby ties, having once been a budding stand-off with Lowestoft Grammar School, his Suffolk alma mater. His sons, Ed and Christopher, both reached the under-18 Scottish Schools Cup final with Dollar Academy, Ed being a contemporary of current Scotland and Glasgow Warriors back-row forward John Barclay and representing Caledonia at under-18 level.Butcher confirmed: “Both my boys loved the game, and I really enjoyed the camaraderie and spirit that came along with it. I played fly-half at school, probably because I was the only one who could kick a ball. I’m left-footed, so I would come inside and kick it long, and I also took all the penalties. I enjoyed the rucks, even if as a stand-off you probably shouldn’t get involved in them too much.”Wright, the former British and Irish Lions and Scotland prop, declared himself “absolutely delighted” to be taking his team to Inverness once more. He said: “The facilities on offer at the stadium are first-class, the pitch is excellently maintained and if the support we got last year is anything to go by, there is a massive amount of passion for the sport in the Highlands and it’s great to be able to feed that. The Ireland game is huge for us in terms of injecting some momentum into our 6 Nations campaign, and from that point of view, the bigger the crowd the better.”“It’s great to see from Terry the enthusiasm that Inverness Caley Thistle have for hosting us here, and given that they are away to Hibs that weekend, it’s hopefully a good chance for some of their supporters to come out and see something a bit different right on their own doorstep.”As with all home Scotland A, Scotland under-20, Club International, under-18, under-17 and Scotland Women games this season, admission to next Friday’s game at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium is FREE.

Receive email alerts News Follow the news on Maldives News Help by sharing this information January 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Opposition website’s reporter expelled, banned for two years Reporters Without Borders today condemned the expulsion of US journalist Phillip Wellman on 19 January and a decision to ban him from returning to the Maldives for two years on the grounds that his visa was not in order. Wellman works for the office of the news website Minivannews.com that is located in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo.“The Maldivian government’s constant targeting of Minivannews, one of the only opposition news media, is alarming,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The process initiated by the authorities with a road map of reforms that was supposed to lead to more freedoms seems to have become seriously stalled. Once again, the government has not kept its promises and the harassment of independent journalists continues.”Wellman arrived in the Maldives in September to report for Minivannews.com. Although he had a work visa, the authorities arrested him on 3 November while he was covering the arrest of members of the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party in the southern atoll of Gaaf Dhal. Accused by government spokesman Mohamed Hussain Shareef of “militant activities,” he and fellow journalist Graham Quick were then expelled. He was nonetheless told he would be able to return to the Maldives two weeks later.Following his expulsion, Wellman went back to Colombo and remained there until 14 January. Before returning to the Maldives, he and his editor, Paul Roberts, sent messages to the Maldivian immigration authorities in an attempt to get his return officialised. All they got in reply was verbal confirmation of the possibility of his return, and a tourist visa.Three days after his arrival in Male, Wellman was contacted by immigration officials and was told he would have to leave on the grounds that he did not have “official permission.” They refused to give him the reasons for his expulsion in writing, but they notified him that he would not be allowed to return for two years.

Hate campaign by Shiite party against government newspaper journalist

Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about an offensive launched by the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI), a Shiite political party, against the government newspaper Al-Sabah and its news editor, Ahmed Abd Al-Hussein, over an article he wrote for the 4 August issue blaming the ISCI for a major bank holdup two weeks ago. Hussein has received death threats. Hussein’s article accused the ISCI of being behind the holdup of a branch of the Al-Rafidin bank in the Baghdad district of Al-Zawiya on 28 July, in which eight security guards were killed. It was one of the biggest holdups since 2003, with a haul of nearly 4 million dollars. The alleged perpetrators, who were arrested three days later, including Capt. Jaafar Lazem, one of the bodyguards of Vice-President Adil Abd Al-Mahdi, an ISCI leader. Organisation News Follow the news on Iraq Hussein’s article said the ISCI had intended to use the holdup money to buy votes in next January’s parliamentary elections.

Cameron Turner: Unfair Hampton Bashing Undermines Council Race

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Opinion & Columnists Cameron Turner: Unfair Hampton Bashing Undermines Council Race By CAMERON TURNER Published on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 | 11:43 am No evidence has been presented to prove that Tyron Hampton had anything to do with damaging or removing the two dozen campaign signs that his city council election rival, Calvin Wells, had to replace the other weekend. Nor is there any evidence that Hampton had any involvement with the alleged disappearance of copies of the Pasadena Journal newspaper which endorsed Wells and reportedly vanished from Robin’s Wood Fire BBQ and a few other locations around town. But the lack of evidence hasn’t stopped some of Hampton’s critics from making vicious and unproven accusations. This has polluted a campaign that should have been seen as a win-win for Pasadena – a race between two excellent and principled candidates.Tyron Hampton and Calvin Wells are both men of integrity who have demonstrated their love of Pasadena through public service – Hampton with two years on the Pasadena school board and Wells with three years as our fire chief (capping a three decade career with the Pasadena Fire Department). Either man would make an honorable addition to the city council.Hampton bashers take a much dimmer view. In back to back editorials (March 18 and 25), Pasadena Journal publisher Joe Hopkins excoriated Hampton as “another crooked politician” with “flexible ethics” who faces “a lot of unanswered questions about his lack of honesty” and whose city council bid is “based on illegal activities.” But Mr. Hopkins offered no facts to prop up these harsh allegations. Instead, his editorials presented nonspecific and unsupported claims of cronyism, guesswork about how much Hampton may have spent of campaign posters, and an assertion that, when he ran for school board in 2013, Hampton “promised a number of local residents” that he would change his political party membership.That many of these vague and unsubstantiated attacks depend on hearsay and rumor makes them all the more unfair. In his March 18 piece, Mr. Hopkins states that “a number of people” claim that Hampton’s camp has “initiated a campaign to replace Calvin Wells campaign signs with Hampton signs on their property.” Mr. Hopkins closed his March 25 op-ed by restating the unproven sign-stealing allegation as if it was a fact. As for those stacks of the March 18 Journal that were allegedly taken from various places, Mr. Hopkins admits in his March 25 op-ed that he has no proof that Hampton was involved. However, he writes that “one guy told us he saw a tall African American woman in a nice car” taking the papers from a distribution spot in Altadena.Perhaps the worst use of rumor-based reporting is Mr. Hopkins’ March 25 claim of a Hampton family conspiracy to take over City Hall for personal gain. Hopkins asserts that “the Hamptons are already… discussing which family members they will put in appointed positions” and that “the father is saying that he can now get all the things done that he has wanted done for years.” Did Hopkins get this unnerving information from a verifiable source? No. He attributes these claims to “word on the street.”As the leading African-American newspaper in the San Gabriel Valley, the Pasadena Journal plays an important role in illuminating the events, people and issues of concern to the black community. I am proud that the Journal is one of the outlets to which I contribute as a writer. But the publisher’s attacks on Tyron Hampton (which actually predate the current city council contest) are a disservice to all of us.The groundless, rumor-based attacks on Tyron Hampton unfairly impugn the character of a respected and dedicated public servant. And, even more significantly, they undermine discussion of the important issues that voters must consider as they prepare to cast ballots in the April 21 runoff election.Thank you for listening.

It is described by the Minister for Health himself as ‘the last escalation step in the HSE National Escalation Framework’ to address hospital overcrowding. Yet, despite this, it is now in constant use in UHL.“This measure results in patients being put in inappropriate areas of hospitals, leading to overcrowding in wards and to the cancelling of elective procedures and aggressive discharging. It is not designed to be used every day.“It is completely unacceptable that the Minister has allowed this practice to become the new norm at UHL”, Deputy Quinlivan declared.He said that the measure was used on just 69 days in 2011.“Being left in a hallway on a trolley or a chair for hours is a terrible situation for any sick patient. But 11,437 people had to experience this at UHL last year. We cannot continue to leave patients that come to hospital for treatment in these distressing situations.”Hospital management have outlined the escalation procedures, which includes not scheduling operation for the busy holiday period and increasing the opening times for minor injury units.“Since early December, services have remained very busy in the emergency department at UHL with increased patient attendances and patient admissions, many of these were over 75, frail elderly patients with complex care needs,” a hospital statement said.“The UHL emergency department is still one of the busiest in the country and there were 1,682 attendances between December 24 and January 1. “All surge capacity is currently open to accommodate high volumes of patients requiring admission, including the new 19 bed Acute Medical Assessment Unit and the 11 bed Surgical Day Ward.“Approximately seven in ten patients will be assessed, treated and discharged home.
