(LONDON) #BrexitNext Finance & Banking: UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid has warned national firms that there will not be any “alignment” with the E.U. following Britain’s departure from the bloc on 31 January despite calls from business leaders, insisting that companies had three-years to prepare for the new economic reality #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.19: “There will not be alignment, we will not be a rule-taker, we will not be in the single market and we will not be in the customs union – and we will do this by the end of the year”, Javid told the Financial Times referring to the next 11 months of trade negotiations with the remaining 27 members of the EU.” https://ift.tt/2G4eric

Brexit: ‘No alignment’ with EU on regulation, Javid tells business

Sajid JavidStefan RousseauSajid Javid said Brexit would impact businesses “one way or the other”

The chancellor has warned manufacturers that “there will not be alignment” with the EU after Brexit and insists firms must “adjust” to new regulations……………..Speaking to the Financial Times, Sajid Javid admitted not all businesses would benefit from Brexit.

“ The Food and Drink Federation said it sounded like the “death knell” for frictionless trade with the EU and was likely to cause food prices to rise: Mr Javid declined to specify which EU rules he wanted to drop: The automotive, food and drink and pharmaceutical industries all warned the government last year that moving away from key EU rules would be damaging “

But Mr Javid told the paper: “There will be an impact on business one way or the other, some will benefit, some won’t.”……………..He said Japan’s car industry was an example of a manufacturing sector which found success without following EU rules……………………….Asked how differing regulations between the UK and EU may impact industries such as automotive and pharmaceuticals, he said: “We’re also talking about companies that have known since 2016 that we are leaving the EU…………………………“Admittedly, they didn’t know the exact terms.”

Tim Rycroft, chief operating officer of the Food and Drink Federation told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme ..that “it sounds awfully like the death knell for the concept of frictionless trade with the EU”………….He said it probably meant that food prices would rise when the transition period finishes at the end of this year………………….Mr Rycroft acknowledged that some other industries might benefit from UK-specific trade rules: But he said: “We also have to make sure the government clearly understands what the consequences will be for industries like ours if they go ahead and change our trading terms.”

Paul Hill, a Birmingham-based business consultant, told BBC Radio 5 Live that companies had nothing to fear from differing trade rules between the UK and EU: If Europe has tighter rules, companies trading there will already be meeting them, he said. And if the UK makes stricter rules “then we’re doing that for proper reasons, for proper benefits”.

The government has not yet agreed a future trading relationship with the EU – it plans to do so in the 11-month transition period which begins after the UK leaves the bloc on 31 January: During the transition period the UK will continue to follow EU rules and contribute to its budget…………The chancellor also said he wanted to double the UK’s annual economic growth to between 2.7 and 2.8%

However, the outgoing governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, told the Financial Times last week he thought the UK’s trend growth rate was much lower, at between 1 and 1.5%………………..Mr Javid said the extra growth would come from spending on skills and infrastructure in the Midlands and the north of England – even if they did not offer as much “bang for the buck” as projects in other parts of the country……………….Historically low interest rates, which allow the government to borrow money relatively cheaply, were “almost a signal to me from the market – from investors – that here’s the cash, use it to do something productive”, Mr Javid said.

He pledged to rewrite Treasury investment rules, which have tended to favour government investment in places with high economic growth and high productivity: Mr Javid said the rules had helped to “entrench” inequality and insisted weaker parts of the country would have first call on the new money here’s how Treasury rules may be rewritten

#AceNewsReport – Jan.18: A car bomb targeting a group of Turkish contractors exploded on Saturday in Afgoye, northwest of the Somali capital Mogadishu, police said: There was no immediate word on any fatalities. “A speeding suicide car bomb rammed into a place where the Turkish engineers and Somali police were having lunch,” police officer Nur Ali told Reuters from Afgoye.

It was not known who carried out the attack but residents and police said al #Shabaab fighters had tried to attack Afgoye, about 30 km from Mogadishu, late on Friday and were repulsed: The al Qaeda-linked militant group has claimed responsibility for past attacks in its campaign to overturn Somalia’s U.N.-backed government.

“We heard a huge blast and soon clouds of smoke into the air. Before the blast, several Turkish engineers and well armed convoy of Somali police were at the scene,” Farah Abdullahi, a shopkeeper, told Reuters from Afgoye…………………..“We see casualties being carried but we cannot make if they are dead or injured.”

Turkish engineers are helping with road construction in Somalia: A group of engineers was among those hit in late December in a blast at a checkpoint in Mogadishu that killed at least 90 people.

(LONDON/BERLIN/PARIS) JUST IN: JCPOA: That these 3 -countries have today Tuesday triggered the ‘ Dispute Mechanism On The Deal ‘ with Johnson saying he will look to provide an alternative with the sup port of the U.S. according to @Reuters #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.13: Britain is willing to work towards an alternative deal to prevent Iran obtaining nuclear weapons if it has U.S. support, but for now the current deal is the only one in place, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Tuesday.

Earlier, France, Britain and Germany confirmed they had triggered the dispute mechanism in the Iran nuclear deal given Tehran’s ongoing violations, but said they were not joining the United States’ campaign to exert maximum pressure on Tehran.

“The JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is the only deal that currently exists which prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon but as the prime minister said before … if in the future we can agree a better deal that has the support of the United States … then that’s something we will work towards,” the spokesman told reporters.

(CARDIFF, Wales.) FEATURED: Those Were The Days: Could history repeat itself with return of ‘ Electric Trolley Buses OR it’s Modern Equivalent ‘ that first appeared on British streets in 19 11 and ended its days on Jan.11: 1970 with advent of what was then called an ‘ Environmentally Friendly & Cheap Car ‘ using ‘ Fossil Fuel ‘ #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.12: They were the original electric buses but 50 years ago today saw the plug pulled on the last trolleybus in Wales: Environmentally friendly and cheap, they finally succumbed to car ownership and fossil fuel on 11 January 1970: Yet half a century later – almost to the day – local councils now see electric public transport as an answer to congestion and air pollution. p0802jm3.jpg

“They are magic,” says trolleybus enthusiast Keith Walker

Some experts and enthusiasts even believe that shift could spark a revival for the forgotten trolleybus: Known as the “trackless trolleys” when they first appeared on U.K. streets in 1911, trolleybuses became the workhorses of the public transport network.

Freed from the restrictions of tracks, taking their power from overhead cables, they provided clean, affordable and quick transport for the masses: In Cardiff alone, more than six million journeys were taken in the first 12 months of the system opening on St David’s Day in 1942.

But the boom in private car ownership during the 1960s would spell the beginning of the end: Electricity prices rose and rapidly-growing cities soon outgrew a network of overhead cables in desperate need of investment.

When Cardiff’s trolleybus number 262 returned to the Newport Road depot for the last time in January 1970 it marked the end of an era: However could local authorities in Wales turn back the clock amid concerns over air quality in our cities and will others follow suit?

(LONDON) NCA Court Report: A cyber criminal has today been jailed for nine months for committing offences against the National Lottery, using a ‘ Hacking Tool ‘ named Sentry MBA ‘ after an investigation that showed an attack against customer accounts in 2016 #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Jan.10: Anwar Batson, 29, of Lancaster Road, Notting Hill, London, was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court after admitting four offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and one fraud charge: In November 2016 the NCA was notified of a cyber attack against customer accounts on the National Lottery – the customer database contained about 9,000,000 records.

In July 2018 Daniel Thompson, 27, of Millfield Avenue, Newcastle, and Idris Kayode Akinwunmi, 21, of Kingston Road, Birmingham, were jailed for eight months and four months respectively at Birmingham Crown Court for using an online application to bombard the victim’s web domain with thousands of attempts to log in to customer accounts: Batson was responsible for using a widely available hacking tool – Sentry MBA – to create a file that launched the attack: Using the online name ‘Rosegold’, he told others they could make quick cash by using the hacking tool against Camelot which runs the National Lottery……………………He also gave the username and password of one lottery player to Akinwunmi who stole £13 from his account before sending Batson £5.

Anwar Batson custody shot

Batson was arrested in May 2017: He denied any involvement and claimed he was the victim of online trolling and his devices had been cloned or hacked: But when officers seized his devices they discovered conversations between Rosegold and others about hacking, buying and selling of username and password lists, configuration files and personal details………………….His computer also contained the conversation with Akinwunmi about stealing £13……………Officers also found clothes at Batson’s flat which had been dispatched to ‘Rosegold’ on the address label.

NCA senior investigating officer Andrew Shorrock said: “Even the most basic forms of cyber crime can have a substantial impact on victims: “No one should think cyber crime is victimless or that they can get away with it……………“The NCA will pursue and identify offenders and any conviction can be devastating to their futures.”

#AceNewsReport – Jan.06: Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses following a fatal stabbing in the Finsbury Park area of Islington: Police were called at approximately 18:50hrs on Friday, 3 January, to reports of a man stabbed in Lennox Road, near Charteris Road, Finsbury Park: Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene, where the victim – a 30-year-old man – was pronounced dead at 19:42hrs. A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course: The man’s next of kin have been informed, but officers await formal identification. It is understood the victim worked as a delivery rider for both Uber Eats and Deliveroo…..A murder investigation has been launched, led by Detective Chief Inspector Neil John.

A manhunt is under way for a van driver over the fatal stabbing of a food delivery rider in an apparent road rage attack in London: Motorcyclist Takieddine Boudhane, 30, who worked for UberEats and Deliveroo, died at the scene in Finsbury Park following what police describe as a “traffic altercation” on Friday evening: A white VW Caddy panel type van was found in Islington on Sunday and taken to a police compound where it will be forensically examined.

The killing of Mr Boudhane, an Algerian national who had been living in the UK for about three years, sparked the Metropolitan Police’s first murder investigation of the year Sky News reports.

DCI John said: “The investigation is at a very early stage. It would appear at this time that an altercation has taken place between the victim, who was riding a motorcycle, and the driver of another vehicle in the vicinity of Lennox Road and Charteris Road, Finsbury Park: “This took place at approximately 6.50pm on Friday night in a busy thoroughfare where there are likely to have been many members of the public present: “The incident itself appears at this early stage to have been spontaneous and not connected to, or as a result of, anything other than a traffic altercation: “Specialist officers are working extremely hard to build a clear picture of what happened and I would encourage anyone who may have seen the incident or has information to come forward: “A forensic examination of the scene has been undertaken and I expect the road to reopen very soon.”
