Osborne set to scale back Merlin plan

By on

first_img Osborne set to scale back Merlin plan Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content whatsapp whatsappcenter_img GEORGE Osborne is planning to water down his flagship peace deal with British banks, in a desperate bid to push through an agreement before UK bonuses are announced next month. The chancellor had originally hoped to convince banks to agree 10 per cent more business loans this year than they did in 2010, as part of the so-called Merlin plan which will see the government cease attacks on bank remuneration in exchange for higher lending. But City A.M. understands the Treasury is now working on a scaled-back plan that will see banks increase business lending by more than GDP plus inflation. According to the Office for Budget Responsibility, GDP will grow by 2.1 per cent this year while inflation will increase by 2.8 per cent. That would mean banks would only have to increase business loans by more than five per cent, although inflation – which is consistently above target – is likely to be much higher. However, the new agreement is likely to see banks lend less than the chancellor had originally hoped, and gives them more wriggle-room should growth and demand be lower than expected. The Treasury still expects Santander to agree to new lending targets, although it will do so under a separate agreement rather than signing up to the Merlin plan. The Spanish bank – which owns Bradford & Bingley and Alliance & Leicester – doesn’t want to be part of a deal on bonuses, when most of its UK operations don’t receive a significant pay-out. The Merlin deal, which was expected to be agreed this week, has been delayed by a number of factors, including anti-trust considerations that prevent UK banks sharing information on their plans for business lending.The recent appointment of Labour’s Ed Balls as shadow chancellor has also thrown a spanner in the works. Osborne is expecting his new opponent to scrutinise any agreement more closely that predecessor Alan Johnson, and wants to ensure the terms of the deal are watertight before it is made public. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming Nearby Scottsdale (Take a Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads Tuesday 25 January 2011 9:34 pm More From Our Partners Matt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Court denies Spelinspektionen leave of appeal over deposit cap loophole

By on

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Swedish Court of Appeal has refused regulator Spelinspektionen’s leave to appeal a case against Kindred subsidiary Spooniker concerning a loophole in the country’s temporary deposit cap. Court denies Spelinspektionen leave of appeal over deposit cap loophole Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter At Kindred sites, players were able to set their own deposit limits, but would only be allowed to play casino games if their limit was under SEK5,000. However, players could set a higher limit, deposit a large amount, lower their deposit limit back below SEK5,000 and spend their entire balance on online casino games. Tags: Spelinspektionen 2nd June 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle While the regulator saw this as a violation, Kindred appealed to the Administrative Court in Linköping. The court ruled that the law refers only to a player’s deposit limits for online casino, rather than their actual deposits. Spelinspektionen was quick to lodge an appeal to this decision, in the Swedish Court of Appeal. However, the court has determined that there are not grounds for appeal and the Linköping decision stands. Legalcenter_img The country first implemented the cap July 2020, over concerns of increased gambling during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. It said that the Linköping decision would mean the deposit cap “loses its significance as a consumer protection provision” and allow operators that offer betting alongside casino to “easily circumvent the deposit limits”. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Casino regulation Legal Regulation Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden The case arose after Spelinspektionen sanctioned both Kindred and ATG for what it said were violations of Sweden’s SEK5,000 (£428/€476/$540) mandatory weekly deposit limit for online casino games.  Spelinspektionen had previously criticised this decision, warning it made the deposit cap almost unenforceable. When the Swedish government considered extending the cap until November – a decision it later put in place – the regulator demanded further clarity around the rule first.

first_imgThursday Jun 14, 2018 Eddie Jones on Kiwi Brad Shields starting for England against Springboks Eddie Jones has named Brad Shields in the starting fifteen to take on the Springboks in the second Test in Bloemfontein on Saturday. Danny Cipriani has also been selected, setting up a first return to Test rugby for him since 2015.England, went down 42-39 in a thrilling match in Johannesburg last weekend, have made two changes to the starting XV, with Brad Shields of the Hurricanes making his first England start at blindside flanker, while future Wasps teammate Joe Launchbury comes in for Nick Isiekwe.Danny Cipriani is named on the bench, replacing Piers Francis. Cipriani’s last cap for England came against France ahead of the Rugby World Cup in 2015. Mark Wilson is also included as a finisher having last played for England on the Argentina tour last season.Eddie Jones said: “We have come here to win the series against South Africa and the squad is ready to go out and beat them this weekend. We have had a very good preparation this week and the intensity and executions in those sessions are going to put us in a good position for Saturday.“The way the team have come together has been superb. Owen Farrell, with a number of the senior players, has really moulded the squad together. They are working hard to improve their game to make sure we win.”Commenting on the change in the back row, Jones added:“Based on South Africa’s likely selection of an extra lineout jumper we have decided to start with Brad Shields, which improves our lineout. It is tough on Chris Robshaw as he has been an outstanding player for us but I know he will bounce back.”HEAD TO HEAD:The overall record between South Africa and England is played 39, with 24 wins to the Springboks, 13 to England, and two draws.

The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS

Located on a long and irregularly narrow site in Trivandrum with its longer side facing west, the The BRICKHAUS, Keralam, India is designed to be both a place of respite and exhilaration for the Clients – a young family both Doctors and their two kids, the lady of the house a trained dancer too. The plan addresses the diverse requirements – a blend of novelty and function, Public presentation & Private expression.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe house is an exploration in revealing the beauty of the oldest and most versatile material – the country burnt brick. The BRICKHAUS naturally evokes a feeling of nostalgia. The house has an ethnic charm, which is accentuated in the varied play of light & shadows by placement and detailing of fenestrations and the material palette. The design has also attempted to bring nature inside, with both the use of contextually detailed skylights and jali work– defining breezeways facilitating natural cooling of the interiors and complemented with a distribution of internal gardens and pools, working together to bring in a magical play of light.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThe house is an unspoken narrative of open and interconnected spaces that challenge the standard assumptions of load-bearing brick construction, an intimate variation of scaling of space, of polished concrete floors and Exposed Concrete ceilings, of un-rendered brick. The house becomes a celebration of the imperfection of the material substrate, and the organic expression of asymmetry conspicuously present throughout all adding to a sense of sensory dynamism. The custom-built furniture and joinery items add to the charm of the house. From a functional layout, the Dining area with its east-west orientation opens out to a landscaped internal Courtyard, connecting the house with the ‘outdoors’.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosThis functional syntax is carried across to other parts of the house also, such as the master bedroom having a landscaped court bounded by brick louvers bringing in cool breezes whilst also being privacy screen controlling views in from the outside. On this same theme, the Medical Consultancy space and its adjoined Guest Bedroom form a separate block spatially separate to the rest of the house, but subtly blended in with the house. A carefully detailed brick-paved path forms the tectonic cord connecting the two spatial blocks together whilst also doubling up as a performance stage floor for small family gatherings. The quiet reflective brick-edged lotus pool beside the informal stage gives a palpable and inviting vibe to this space.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosInternally, the timber staircase and its juxtaposition to a traditional swing in the adjoining internal courtyard uses the visual language of litheness and motion to tie together the larger layout of contingent spaces, whilst allowing through-views for a sense of a spatial continuum. From an energy consumption perspective, The BRICKHAUS is a ‘Net Zero’ entity. The BRICKHAUS has tastefully responded to the potential of its site, and the aspirational requirements of its clients to deliver a restrained architectural end product, which is both visually capturing as well as functionally efficient, and an organic addition to the local milieu.Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running StudiosProject gallerySee allShow lessHuandao Middle School / TAO – Trace Architecture OfficeSelected ProjectsTwo Union Square Lobby / NBBJSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928531/the-brick-house-srijit-srinivas-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!© Prasanth Mohan, Running Studios+ 31Curated by Paula Pintos Share 2019 Srijit Srinivas Projects Houses Architects: Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS Area Area of this architecture project Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928531/the-brick-house-srijit-srinivas-architects Clipboard The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS “COPY” Year:  CopyHouses•Thiruvananthapuram, India Srijit Srinivas ARCHITECTS Photographs:  Prasanth Mohan, Running Studios Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lead Architect: The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTSSave this projectSaveThe Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS India Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Grohe, Adobe, Changi, Decowood, Hybec, Trojan, Tulip Landscape Design: Area:  4250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSrijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThiruvananthapuramOn FacebookIndiaPublished on November 17, 2019Cite: “The Brick House / Srijit Srinivas – ARCHITECTS” 16 Nov 2019.

The two will be joined by a new polymer £20 note featuring J M W Turner in 2020.  The current paper £10 note featuring Charles Darwin will be withdrawn in Spring 2018, with the date yet to be announced.The new version is the first note to have a tactile feature to support the blind and partially sighted: on the front of the polymer £10 note, there are two clusters of raised dots in the top left hand corner. Following on from last year’s launch of the new £5 note, which saw millions raised for charity through the first fiver campaign, charities and individuals have taken to social media to ask people to consider donating their first tenner too. This included Caroline Criado-Perez who campaigned to have a woman on the banknote. She is donating her first tenner to a women’s shelter and is urging others to do the same.https://twitter.com/CCriadoPerez/status/908245015524241408In addition, the Bank of England has announced that it is holding a charity auction of notes with low serial numbers on 6 October, run by Spinks.

Soccer Aid for Unicef 2020 has raised a record £11,552,577, bringing the total amount raised since 2006 to nearly £50m.Broadcast exclusively live on ITV and STV, Soccer Aid donations were matched by both the UK government and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, for the first time in the match’s history, with every £1 donated matched up to £3 million.The money raised will go to help Unicef’s work to stop the spread of coronavirus and limit the impact on children’s lives around the world.The match had originally scheduled for Sunday 6 June, and was played behind closed doors at Manchester United FC’s Old Trafford. It went to penalties after ending on 1-1. The England team was led by Olly Murs, with Mo Gilligan captaining the Soccer Aid World XI FC. England was co-managed by Wayne Rooney and Sam Allardyce, with the team up against Soccer Aid for Unicef stalwart Harry Redknapp, and Bryan Robson.This was the second year that former female professional players also took part.
