With Rudd now gone, Theresa May faces a new crisis | Isabel Hardman

The Windrush scandal has claimed its first scalp. But the prime minister is in a desperately weak position and the focus will turn to her own role Amber Rudd’s resignation may have been inevitable from the day the Windrush row broke, but it was still a shock to everyone in the Conservative party, including the home secretary’s allies and Downing Street. Most Tories were settling down for a quiet night when the news broke late on Sunday. I had spent the day speaking to No 10 figures and Rudd’s friends and all had been confident that she would stay in the job.On their weekly ring-around of MPs, the Conservative whips ask their charges about various big political issues that might cause trouble in the days ahead. You might expect, given the way it has dominated the front pages for two weeks now, that Windrush might get a mention in the round of calls. It didn’t. No one was planning for this resignation.

Is Philip Hammond right to be so Tiggerish over the economy? | Larry Elliott

Weak GDP growth of first quarter could be low point but chancellor faces serious headwindsPhilip Hammond was in an upbeat mood when he held a breakfast at the British embassy in Washington DC during last week’s spring meeting of the International Monetary Fund. The economy had turned a corner, the chancellor insisted, once again comparing his mood to the ever-cheerful Tigger in AA Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories.Whether Hammond remains quite so Tiggerish in the light of the latest UK growth figures remains to be seen. In the first three months of the year, gross domestic product grew by only 0.1%, the weakest quarterly result since the UK was having a post-London Olympics hangover in late 2012. The City knew the news was going to be bad but not that bad. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on QE: the economy needs more than a magic money tree | Editorial

Quantitative easing succeeded in staving off disaster but it was not enough to regenerate a fair economy. This could have been achieved by a redistributive, expansionary fiscal policy which ministers were ideologically resistant toWhen running for the Labour leadership, Jeremy Corbyn wanted a “people’s quantitative easing” to boost the economy. It was frostily dismissed in 2015 as being forbidden by provisions in the Lisbon treaty. If we leave the European Union, those strictures will no longer apply. This is not to agitate on the side of Brexiters but to observe that the quiver of the argument against printing money might lose an arrow or two if we leave the EU. In fact, the Bank of England, while the UK was in the EU, did print hundreds of billions of pounds to avoid economic disaster. At the push of a button, the Bank conjured up £435bn to buy up gilts – government bonds – and exchange them for bank deposits. On the national balance sheet this sum is listed as debt, but it is not in the strictest sense because it is not owed to anyone. Turns out there is a magic money tree.Last week, Andy Haldane, the Bank’s chief economist, defended the Bank’s low interest rates and quantitative easing programme from critics, including the prime minister, who have said the policy rewarded those who had assets and penalised those who did not. Mr Haldane’s defence is that the public has yet to grasp how much worse the crisis would have been without QE. There’s a bit of truth on both sides. Having sold their gilts back to the Bank, investors bought up company stocks and bonds or property – sending prices to record highs – instead of creating new activity in the real economy, higher growth and jobs. Money from bond sales remained stuck in the banking system. The government could have corralled the private sector to make socially useful investment but ministers, antagonistic to the state, sat on their hands. The result was that the injection of money caused a stock-market boom in the financial economy, but on the real economy – the target of the policy – it had little effect. Continue reading...

Ведущая новостей: Виктория Булах. Лондон может отказаться от выплаты ЕС согласованных £40 млрд. ($56,5 млрд.), заявил министр Великобритании по вопросам Brexit Дэвид Дэвис. На такой шаг Лондон пойдет, если «не получит выгодную торговую сделку». Ранее глава британского минфина Филип Хаммонд сообщил, что будущее двустороннее торговое соглашение должно быть выгодно для обеих сторон и в нем должна быть прописана сфера оказания финансовых услуг. Число погибших при пожаре в торговом центре «Зимняя вишня» в Кемерове достигло 64 человек. В данный момент над торговым центром вновь поднялись клубы дыма. Глава МЧС России Владимир Пучков сообщил, что причиной задымления стало тление в завалах, перешедшее в активную фазу. В больницах остаются 11 пострадавших. Материальный ущерб от пожара оценен в 4 миллиарда рублей. Российские послы в Латвии, Литве, Эстонии и Польше вызваны в МИД республик. Поводы для вызова дипломатов в министерства не уточняются. Однако это может быть связано с тем, что страны ЕС на саммите в Брюсселе 22-23 марта выразили солидарность Великобритании по делу Скрипаля, обвинив в инциденте Россию. Национальная авиакомпания Катара Qatar Airways намерена приобрести 25% акций московского аэропорта "Внуково", сообщает "Интерфакс". Предполагается, что сделка будет заключена в течении восьми недель. По итогам 2017 года "Внуково" стал третьим по объему пассажиропотока аэропортом в России. В новом бюджете США 2018 года, одобренном американским Конгрессом, выделены на многоуровневую противоракетную оборону Израиля рекордные для ПРО $705 млн. Эта сумма выделена в дополнении к военной помощи в размере $3,1 млрд., которую Вашингтон направил Тель-Авиву ранее. ____________________________________________________ Более подробно на сайте http://anna-news.info Помочь материально: http://anna-news.info/помощь-агентству-anna-news/ Мы в соцсетях: Вконтакте https://vk.com/anna_news Facebooke https://www.facebook.com/newsanna/ Twitter https://twitter.com/annanews_info Instagram https://www.instagram.com/anna_news.info/

Британия готовит финансовый ультиматум

Великобритания может отказаться от выплаты 40 млрд фунтов стерлингов (56,5 млрд долларов), если ЕС не пойдет на заключение устраивающего Лондон соглашения о свободной торговле, заявил британский министр по вопросам Brexit Дэвид Дэвис. Как пишет Daily Express, отказ от выплаты, по мнению Дэвиса, возможен, если Лондон не получит выгодную для него торговую сделку, передает ТАСС. «На прошлой неделе Мишель Барнье (главный переговорщик Еврокомиссии по Brexit – прим. ВЗГЛЯД) заметил, что «ничего не согласовано, пока все не будет согласовано», – напомнил Дэвид Дэвис. При этом он отметил, что «будущая сделка, будущее экономическое партнерство и будущее взаимодействие в сфере безопасности и обороны выглядят весьма вероятными». Ранее глава минфина Британии Филип Хаммонд отметил, что будущее двустороннее торговое соглашение должно включать в себя сферу оказания финансовых услуг. Он подчеркнул, что торговое соглашение Британии и ЕС может быть заключено лишь при условии, если в нем будут сбалансированы интересы каждой из сторон. До этого Брюссель и Лондон объявили о достижении общей договоренности о том, что переходный период после выхода Британии из ЕС составит 21 месяц. 7 марта председатель Евросовета Дональд Туск сообщил, что лидерам ЕС направлена стратегия второго этапа переговоров по Brexit. В конце февраля Еврокомиссия опубликовала первый проект текста соглашения о выходе Великобритании из ЕС, подготовленный по итогам первого этапа переговоров Брюсселя и Лондона. При этом премьер Британии Тереза Мэй заявила, что этот проект соглашения содержит положения, угрожающие конституционной целостности Соединенного Королевства. В январе сообщалось, что Британия, которая должна покинуть ЕС к концу марта 2019 года, не согласилась с требованием исполнять законы ЕС после Brexit.

If Hammond feels Tiggerish about the economy, he can’t care about living standards | Will Hutton

The chancellor’s bouncy optimism is guided by the national debt – not Britain’s stagnant growthBritain has just endured the worst economic decade of modern times, and official forecasts for the next five years, offered in the spring budget, predict more of the same. Yet Philip Hammond, the chancellor, began his otherwise low-key budget speech declaring he was feeling Tiggerish.There was light at the end of the tunnel, he said, with day-to-day spending now balanced and the national debt set to fall in three years’ time. The government would meet its self-imposed fiscal mandate. If the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) remained upbeat in the autumn – you never know – he might be able to allow some extra public spending, building on the concessions he was already making. Hurrah! Continue reading...
