London must fight hard to keep headquarters

first_img London must fight hard to keep headquarters HAVE you ever played Whac A Mole? A menacing, flinty eyed mole pops up out of his hole, and no sooner have you whacked him down than another menacing mole pops out of another hole. However hard you whack, that menace remains.It is the same for those who defend London as a global financial services centre. The Independent Commission on Banking mole popped up threatening to force the break up of the banks, but saw the light and ducked back down. The recommendations balance the competing interests of banks, their shareholders, consumers and taxpayers. Banks are still studying the small print, but requiring them to ring fence retail deposits so they are not used in investment banking is unlikely to be too great a burden to bear.But now comes another threat – the belief that actually we shouldn’t worry about whether London loses its banks headquarters to New York, Hong Kong or Singapore. This line of thought accompanied the Commission’s report, and has been repeated by financial commentators since, and is in danger of going mainstream. We shouldn’t worry about losing an HQ, the line of thinking goes – it just means you lose a few executive jobs, but the bulk of the business and workers would stay behind unaffected; and while the government will lose a little bit of corporation tax, it’ll keep the income tax on the workers, which is where the real revenues are.This is defeatist twaddle. The location of HQs is very important, which is why countries fight over them. There is the obvious reputational impact on London, which would have longer-term consequences. But most importantly, HQs aren’t just a few executives and a brass nameplate detached from their operations. When top executives go, their senior staff want to go with them – they’ll never get a promotion if their bosses never see them. Legal and other professional services firms must go where their clients are. If the HQs go, our other sectors that are global centres of excellence start being unpicked. And the jobs and tax argument fails the reality test – Google set up its European HQ in Dublin because of the corporate tax rate, and now it employs three times as many people there as in London, all paying income tax to the Irish not British government.The location of HQs matters. The good news is we have a strong chance of keeping them. The danger is that we start taking them for granted.Anthony Browne is an adviser to the Mayor of London KCS-content Wednesday 13 April 2011 8:31 pm 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 PastSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Tags: NULL whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ last_img read more

Gauselmann UK launches political charm offensive

first_img Gauselmann UK, the British subsidiary of the German gaming giant, has launched its Constituency Campaign, a new push to develop closer relationships with politicians representing the communities it serves, and to highlight the benefits of its business.The initiative was launched with the operator welcoming Conservative MP for Rugby, Mark Pawsey, to the Warwickshire town’s Merkur Cashino adult gaming centre (AGC).Mr Pawsey was hosted at the AGC by Mark Schertle, chief operating officer of the Cashino brand’s operator Praesepe, as well as Gauselmann UK’s director of public and political relations, Tony Boulton, and head of compliance, Amanda Kiernan.Gauselmann UK described the core objective of its political campaign as getting to know as many as possible of the MPs representing those constituencies where the group operates gaming venues.“From our perspective, it’s absolutely vital that MPs understand exactly what the AGC sector is all about,” Boulton explained.“A lack of understanding has often been the root cause of many of the policy/political miss-steps that have held back the industry, something which we simply cannot afford as we approach the review of the Gambling Act.”The Member of Parliament added: “It was great to visit the Merkur Cashino in Rugby, meet the team and to see the measures that they’ve put in place to make the AGC a Covid-secure environment for visitors.”“Now more than ever, it’s absolutely vital to support local businesses on our high streets as we look to rebuild and recover after lockdown. The months ahead will be challenging for businesses and retailers, but the government is committed to ensuring they have the support they need, and it was important for me to get honest feedback from Tony, Mark and the team. I look forward to visiting again soon to see how things are progressing.”The anticipated review of the Gambling Act is a major topic of discussion in the UK gaming industry at present. Garnering broad public and political support, it’s expected to be launched by the current government this year, after being among the manifesto pledges which saw the Conservative Party elected in 2019.Updates such as the classification of loot boxes as gambling products, a ban on overdraft or credit card use for gambling, and further restrictions on advertising are among the measures being called for.With potential pitfalls for the industry looming, Boulton went on to explain that meeting MPs face-to-face to discuss industry concerns “has to be far more effective than writing a letter or sending an email.“Instead, our focus is on building relationships and creating a dialogue with our constituency MPs.” Regions: UK & Ireland Casino & games 31st July 2020 | By Conor Mulheir Gauselmann UK, the British subsidiary of the German gaming giant, has launched its Constituency Campaign, a new push to develop closer relationships with politicians representing the communities it serves, and to highlight the benefits of its business.

Friday Funnies – The Ref organising the lineout

Well, this pretty much exemplifies that.Have a good weekend.

Jaque Fourie suspended for dangerous tackle on Ma’a Nonu

first_imgMonday Sep 14, 2009 Jaque Fourie suspended for dangerous tackle on Ma’a Nonu Springbok centre Jaque Fourie has been handed a 4 week suspension following the 32-29 Tri Nations victory over the All Blacks in Hamilton on the weekend.Fourie made a tackle on Ma’a Nonu in te 73rd minute of the match that was ignored by the referee and touchjudges, but picked out by citing commisioner Scott Nowland after the match.Fourie, 26, appeared before a judicial hearing in Hamilton on Sunday. He argued that the tackle was reckless, but not intentional.After reviewing video evidence and hearing player submissions, Judicial officer Paul Tulley said that the tackle had been “clearly dangerous and placed the player in a vulnerable position when he landed on his neck and shoulder.”Fourie was not intending to play next week, so his suspension will begin on September 26th, and run until October 19th. If his team, the Lions, don’t make the Currie Cup final, he won’t be playing again any time soon.Following the controversy with the Bakkies Botha ‘Justice 4’ incident, questions of consistency when it comes to ‘independent’ panels are sure to come up again.

The criteria used in the tender were the urban, architectonic, functional and aesthetic values of the proposal.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizLocated in a rectangular plot, the morphology of the building is determined by the Community Development Plan which defines three longitudinal volumes from North to South, 9 stories high where they meet the road and 6 stories high in the remaining two thirds of its development. The blocks are linked by an element on the ground floor, from East to West where it meets the road.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizAll houses are intended to have around 90 m2 of carpet area and three bedrooms. The standard block of flats has three staircase and lift couplings that grant access to two flats per landing, thus allowing all flats to have a double orientation. Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe house tries to make the most of the double North-South orientation through the open-plan kitchen, which makes up a single longitudinal room, from one end to the other, around which all other rooms are located. This space is enclosed by two great openings on each end, topped off by a balcony in the living-room area. There is hardly any circulation area, making the most of the area that regulations allow for public areas.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThis is the fourth council housing project developed by ACXT-IDOM Group in Vitoria-Gasteiz, counting a total of 497 homes, after the two which are already built and a planned third one for VISESA.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Swiss Pavilion / Le CorbusierArchitecture ClassicsHerzog & de Meuron Breaks Ground on Public “Bathing Lake” in RiehenArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Vitoria-Gasteiz, SpainView location on google mapsLocation to be used only as a reference.
