(LONDON) Press Release Statement Report: President Joe Biden Met With Boris Johnson at the White House #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.22: The Prime Minister met US President Biden at the White House today.

GOVUK: PM meeting with President Joe Biden: 21 September 2021: The leaders welcomed the important developments in the UK-US relationship that have taken place since they last met in June, particularly in the areas covered by the new Atlantic Charter they agreed in Cornwall including security, science & technology, trade, health and climate action.

The President and Prime Minister agreed that the new AUKUS alliance, announced last week, was a clear articulation of the UK and America’s shared values and approach to the world. They underscored the important role the alliance will play in promoting peace and stability around the world, harnessing British, American and Australian expertise to solve future challenges.

The leaders welcomed the close cooperation between our countries during the NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan. The Prime Minister expressed his condolences for the American servicepeople killed during the operation. The Prime Minister and President Biden agreed that the best way to honour all those who gave their lives to make Afghanistan a better place will be to use all the diplomatic and humanitarian tools at our disposal to prevent a humanitarian crisis and preserve the gains made in Afghanistan.

To that end, they discussed the progress made since the G7 meeting last month to coordinate international action on Afghanistan. They agreed that any international recognition of the Taliban must be coordinated and contingent on the group respecting human rights.

The Prime Minister welcomed President Biden’s leadership on the issue of climate, and his announcement today that the US would double its climate finance commitment. The leaders agreed on the need for G7 countries to deliver on the promises made in Carbis Bay, particularly with regard to phasing out the use of coal and supporting developing countries to grow cleanly. They agreed the Build Back Better World Initiative would be crucial in achieving this. The Prime Minister said he looks forward to welcoming the President to the COP26 Summit in Glasgow.

The Prime Minster and President Biden also agreed on the need to increase international vaccine access to deliver on the commitment made in Cornwall to vaccinate the world by the end of next year. They noted that the success of the British and American vaccine rollouts has been instrumental in allowing UK-US travel to resume. The Prime Minister welcomed the US announcement that they will allow double vaccinated British nationals to enter the country from November, a move which will allow families and friends to reunite and will help stimulate our economies.

The Prime Minister updated President Biden on the developments with respect to the Northern Ireland Protocol since they last met in June. The leaders agreed on the importance of protecting peace in Northern Ireland.

The Prime Minister welcomed the resolution of the Airbus-Boeing trade dispute earlier this year. The whisky tariffs lowered by the US as well as President Biden’s decision to lift the ban on British beef will boost UK-US trade, already worth £200 billion a year. The leaders agreed to continue working towards a future full Free Trade Agreement.

The Prime Minister and President also talked about a number of international issues including China and Russia. They agreed the UK and US would continue to have an approach to these issues driven by our shared values and the Prime Minister looked forward to the President’s Summit for Democracy which will help drive international action.

(LONDON) JUST IN: Allow all Scots the right to vote in future independence referendum, PM Boris Johnson has urged #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.22: The prime minister is reportedly drawing up plans to allow the 800,000 Scots living in England a right to vote, as well as the 50,000 living in Wales:

Boris Johnson is reportedly weighing up plans to allow 800,000 Scots living in England the right in any future Scottish independence referendum, the leader of the All for Unity party has told GB News.

But Jamie Blackett said the government should go further and ensure all Scots, whether living in the UK or abroad, should be given the right to vote.

He said: “I don’t think it’s inevitable at all there will be another referendum. Nicola Sturgeon had 31% of the electorate voting for her on May 6 and that to my mind is not a mandate.

“The unfortunate thing is that the unionist vote was split, which allow the SNP to win the majority of the seats.

He added: “I do think we need to clarify matters. We cannot have in Scotland this toxic neveredum which is dividing communities, dividing families, and holding back the economy.

“We’ve urged the government to pass a Canada-style clarity act. One of the sections of that would be to sort out the franchise, not just to allow 800,000 Scots living elsewhere in the UK, but to allow all Scots to vote. Its part of the Scottish condition to go off and seek your fortune, before returning to Scotland.

“My own children are in London but they have ever intention to come back to live in Scotland.

“It’s manifestly unfair that just those Scots living in Scotland are given a vote. Goerge Galloway always points out that the captain of Lithuania would have a vote, but the captain of Scotland would not be able to as he’s playing in England.”

The Times is also reporting that Ruth Davidson could be ready for a return to frontline politics – being offered a ministerial role co-ordinating policy to keep the union together.

Last week former prime minister Gordon Brown warned of 50 years of conflict between England and Scotland if the country was partitioned.

  • Do you think all Scots should be allowed to vote in any independence referendum? ………….Or should it be reserved for just those living north of the English border? ……………Let us know what you think in the comments section:

(LONDON) Ministerial Statement Report: Nadhim Zahawi MP has been appointed as a ‘ Parliamentary Under Secretary of State ‘ at the Department of Health and Social Care #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Nov.28: The British government appointed a vaccines minister on Saturday as it prepares to inoculate millions of people against the coronavirus, potentially starting within days: Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Conservative lawmaker Nadhim Zahawi will oversee the country’s biggest vaccine program in decades:

Ministerial Appointment: 28 November 2020: Nadim Zahawi MP as #Covid19according to @DHSCgovuk

The U.K. medicines regulator is currently assessing two vaccines — one developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, the other by Oxford University and AstraZeneca — to see if they are safe and effective. The Guardian newspaper reported that hospitals have been told they could receive the first doses of the Pfizer shot the week of Dec. 7, if it receives approval: The U.K. says frontline health care workers and nursing home residents will be the first to be vaccinated, followed by older people, starting with those over age 80.

Britain has ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, enough for 20 million people, and 100 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine: In all, the U.K. government has agreed to purchase up to 355 million doses of vaccine from seven different producers, as it prepares to vaccinate as many of the country’s 67 million people as possible: Decisions about which, if any, vaccines to authorize will be made by the independent Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency:

Pfizer and BioNTech say their vaccine is 95% effective, according to preliminary data. It must be stored at ultra-cold temperatures of around minus 70 degrees Celsius (minus 94 Fahrenheit)…………….The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine can be stored at conventional refrigerator temperatures, and is also cheaper than its main rivals. But some scientists have questioned gaps in its reported results.

Oxford and AstraZeneca reported this week that their vaccine appeared to be 62% effective in people who received two doses, and 90% effective when volunteers were given a half dose followed by a full dose: They said the half dose was administered because of a manufacturing error, and they plan a new clinical trial to investigate the most effective dosing regimen:

The British government hopes a combination of vaccines and mass testing will end the need for restrictions on business and everyday life it imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Britain has had Europe’s deadliest COVID-19 outbreak, with more than 57,000 confirmed virus-related deaths: The prime minister said this week that officials hope to inoculate “the vast majority of the people who need the most protection by Easter.” But he warned that “we must first navigate a hard winter” of restrictions:

A four-week national lockdown in England is due to end Wednesday, and will be replaced by three-tiered system of regional measures that restrict business activity, travel and socializing. The vast majority of the country is being put into the upper two tiers: Johnson faces opposition to the measures from dozens of his own Conservative Party’s lawmakers, who say the economic damage outweighs the public health benefits.

But Cabinet minister Michael Gove said the restrictions were “grimly” necessary to avoid the health system being overwhelmed this winter: Writing in The Times of London, Gove said there are currently 16,000 coronavirus patients in British hospitals, not far below the April peak of 20,000. A rise in infections would mean coronavirus patients would “displace all but emergency cases. And then even those.,” he said: ” If, however, we can keep the level of infection stable or, even better, falling, and hold out through January and February, then we can be confident that vaccination will pull the plug on the problem,” Gove wrote:

Workers Rights Come Second To Productivity

 

The FT reports that the Government is coming under pressure from right-wing Conservative MPs to deliver free market reforms to help boost growth. Boris Johnson has urged the Coalition to slash red tape, and introduce a new London airport and more house building. Nadhim Zahawi says he wants a more flexible labour market to unlock business growth. While Elizabeth Truss has called for an aviation bill and employment reforms to exempt small companies from unfair dismissal claims.

This article in the FT shows how far we will go to provide a stable economy, even down to exempting small companies from unfair dismissal. So all that our previous politicians fought for to give workers, their rights goes by the board when this country starts to feel the pinch!

It is not the man or woman who goes off to their grueling 7 or as in the case of some l have met 14 hour days, to earn a crust, that want to change the rules! This is the so-called middle class that in the last 20 years have gained that foothold on the ladder of success and gained so-called respectability, in the workplace.

As Wikipedia so rightly puts it about the past:

In England 1833, a law was passed saying that any child under the age of 9 could not work, children age 9-13 could only work 8 hours a day, and children aged 14–18 could only work 12 hours a day.

Did we not get past this type of law that allowed children up chimneys in the Victorian Times and allowed them to work only 8 hours! We call that a days work now and what of the days of  the common market, remember that time when people joined,with wide expectations of future jobs, welfare, equal-rights and fairness among the masses! It all turned into a ” gravy train” for all those that climbed aboard!

So now this government minister asks for employment reforms and exemption for small companies from unfair dismissal! Well we all can gather from this type of statement,what this means! The implementation of such change will lead to people being sacked when ever we have a downturn in the economy! Then re-employed when things pick up on a different contract,with lower wages or the like! Maybe we all should doff our cap each time we see a person who is one of our so-called illustrious leaders,as well!

Not me l say! These laws maybe weak and have many loop holes but they protect the very life-blood of this country and in fact the world! Every man, woman and child has a right to be protected at work, given a decent working wage and treated fairly by their employers!

Any reform that starts with exempting companies from their duty is in my opinion tantamount to negligent, provable by law at present but given this type of reform, not for much longer!
