ANGER OVER COST OF SNOW FIASCO

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULL Thursday 2 December 2010 8:55 pmcenter_img ANGER OVER COST OF SNOW FIASCO THE COST to the UK economy of the mounting chaos bought by the snow and unseasonally cold temperatures could be as much as £1.2bn a day, it was claimed yesterday. As the seventh day of the cold snap saw the disruption reach the south-east of England, with more than six inches of snow falling overnight, Labour’s shadow transport secretary Maria Eagle used the figure, estimated by insurer RSA, to accuse the government of “complacency” amid the freezing weather conditions.For the capital, the London Chamber of Commerce, forecast the cost of the disruption caused by the snow, through missed days at work and lost retail trade, would “now undoubtedly be in the millions.”As many as two in five people were unable to get into work yesterday, a survey by law firm Peninsula found, as Gatwick Airport remained shut, commuter rail services were suspended and road conditions remained treacherous.While many chose to work from home, law firm Kingsley Napley warned the lack of a policy on weather-related absence left employers vulnerable to discrimination claims.Head of employment law Richard Fox said such a policy, clarifying the expectations of an absent employee and whether that worker would get paid if not able to work from home, would ensure even treatment of all employees and prevent possible discrimination claims from an ad hoc system implemented by day-to-day managers. Transport secretary Philip Hammond, who yesterday ordered an urgent review of how the transport system has coped, insisted that the government was doing everything possible “to keep Britain moving”, but that “the scale of the weather event” had to be taken into account.Travellers are expected to face further misery today with heavy snow warnings for London and the South East last night and widespread icy roads expected. Gatwick Airport will remain closed until at least 6.00am and train companies in the south-east Southern, the London-to-Brighton operator, and Southeastern, paralysed by snowfall in Kent, are both expected to have more delays and cancellations into London.One beneficiary of the weather however were the big shopping chains. Marks & Spencer said there had been a 121 per cent increase in demand for thermal clothing in the past week, while Asda said it had sold about 100,000 units of de-icer and Waitrose said sales for the past week were up 11 per cent overall on the previous year as shoppers stocked up. However, Waitrose parent John Lewis said the past week had seen sales level with this time last year due to lower customer numbers in the poor conditions. Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Plans to slash safety red tape

first_imgSunday 20 March 2011 11:56 pm whatsapp whatsapp Plans to slash safety red tape KCS-content Sharecenter_img Health and safety inspections are to be cut by a third in a bid to cut costs for low-risk businesses.As part of a raft of rule changes to be announced by employment minister Chris Grayling today, the government will instruct inspectors to concentrate their efforts on high risk locations, like major energy facilities, and employers with poor health and safety records. The government has also promised a comprehensive review of health and safety laws, with a view to cutting out unnecessary red tape.Meanwhile, a new register of qualified consultants will be brought in to cut out untrained “cowboys”, along with a new online scheme to help small, low risk employers. Grayling will say: “Of course it is right to protect employees in the workplace, but Britain’s health and safety culture is also stifling business and holding back economic growth… These measures will help root out the needless burden of bureaucracy.”British Chamber of Commerce Director General David Frost said: “Simplifying and codifying health and safety laws will help employers spend less time on tick box exercises, and more time focusing on growing their businesses.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Forget gold and buy-to-let: here’s how I’d invest £10k in this FTSE 100 market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The performance of the FTSE 100 over recent weeks has been hugely disappointing. The lead index has experienced one of its fastest and most severe crashes of all time. It has moved as much as 35% lower than its 2020 starting price.Despite ongoing uncertainty, now could be the right time to invest £10k in a range of FTSE 100 shares for the long run. They could offer superior returns than other popular assets, such as gold and buy-to-let properties.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…FTSE 100 recovery potentialAt the present time, many investors are turning to defensive assets, such as gold, in response to the FTSE 100’s decline. That’s understandable. The precious metal’s price has risen to a seven-year high in recent weeks. Investor demand for gold could continue to be high in the short run as a result of its status as a store of wealth.However, in the long run, investor sentiment towards riskier assets is likely to improve. Following previous FTSE 100 bear markets, confidence has returned over the medium term. This could mean the prospects for profit via gold are more limited than those of undervalued FTSE 100 stocks over a long time horizon.A FTSE 100 recovery may appear to be somewhat unlikely at the present time, due to the challenging outlook for the world economy. But the index’s track record shows it has always delivered successful turnarounds following its bear markets.The same outcome is likely over the long run. So buying large-cap shares while they offer wide margins of safety could prove to be a shrewd move.Return prospectsThe speed at which the FTSE 100 has declined in 2020 may convince some investors that slower-moving assets, such as buy-to-let properties, are more attractive. However, in reality, house prices could also move lower.They may take longer to reflect an uncertain economic outlook than is the case for the FTSE 100. But with affordability issues present across the industry, house prices may fail to deliver the same level of returns as they have done in prior years.By contrast, many FTSE 100 shares appear to offer excellent value for money at the present time. Some FTSE 100 stocks have experienced falls of over 50% since the start of the year. Investor sentiment may remain weak. But, in many cases, those companies have strong balance sheets and wide economic moats. Both of thee could catalyse their performances over the coming years.Therefore, now may be the right time to buy a diverse range of them. Clearly, further declines cannot be ruled out since, in the short run, news regarding coronavirus is likely to have a significant impact on investor sentiment. But, in the long run, they could offer impressive total returns relative to other assets such as gold and buy-to-let property.

In 2019, he served as a scrum coach at the Cheetahs as well as the Bulls. At that stage, the Cheetahs were competing in the Pro14 and the Bulls in the Super Rugby tournament.Human eventually joined the Bulls on a more permanent basis, and helped Springbok front-rankers such as Trevor Nyakane and Lizo Gqoboka improve their scrummaging technique.9.

Deon Davids was recruited as forwards coach, while Human was named to succeed Proudfoot as the Boks’ scrum doctor.10.
