May and Hammond fail to win new fans among tough Davos crowd | Larry Elliott

While the PM tried to strike a conciliatory chord, Europe will view the chancellor’s harsher tone as an empty threatDavos is normally one of the easier gigs of the year for the prime minister. It is the perfect stage on which to trumpet what HM Government is doing about the burning issue of the day: developing country debt, climate change or getting tough on tax havens. In recent years, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron have all gone down a storm at the Glastonbury for global capitalism.Theresa May, aided by her chancellor Philip Hammond, had a much tougher time this year.

Гендиректор ВТО заявил об отсутствии обсуждения выхода Великобритании из организации

Генеральный директор Всемирной торговой организации (ВТО) Роберто Азеведо заявил, что сейчас не стоит вопрос о выходе Великобритании из организации. «Разговоров о выходе Великобритании из ВТО не идет. Напротив, я думаю, в данный момент, Великобритания во многом полагается на ВТО и ее нормы, призванные регулировать отношения не только Великобритании с Евросоюзом, но и с другими членами. Условия членства — вот в чем вопрос, но все будет зависеть от переговоров, которые будут проходить между Великобританией и Евросоюзом»,— приводит его слова «РИА Новости».Господин Азеведо отметил, что ВТО будет задействована только тогда, «когда произойдет развод, когда Великобритания начнет обсуждать свои условия и обязательства с другими членами ВТО, а это уже совершенно иной процесс».Гендиректор ВТО сделал эти заявления, комментируя перспективы выхода Великобритании из ВТО после слов британского министра финансов Филипа Хаммонда.

Theresa May Says UK To Leave EU Single Market

Update: Britain will leave the EU's single market when it exits the European Union, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday, putting an end to speculation that London might try to seek a "soft Brexit". In her long-awaited speech in which she sought to define the country's future as a global player that aims to trade freely far beyond Europe, May said the final exit deal would be put to parliament for a vote, a statement which sent cable soaring on hopes Brexit may be unwound. Sterling, which has traded at the lowest levels against the U.S. dollar for more than three decades, rose during May's speech hitting a day high, and jumping the most since 2008.  Her announcement that she will put the final Brexit deal to a vote in both houses of parliament comes ahead of a court decision on whether she has the power to start the process of withdrawing without parliamentary approval. May said she would seek an equal partnership with the EU but that she would not adopt models already used by other countries that have free trade agreements with the bloc. Her statement that Britain would leave the single market was by far the clearest indication she has ever given of her plans for the future, after months of criticism that she was not being sufficiently transparent. "I want to be clear: What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market," May told an audience of foreign diplomats and Britain's own Brexit negotiating team at a mansion house in London. "Instead we seek the greatest possible access to it though a new comprehensive, bold and ambitious free trade agreement. That agreement may take in elements of current single market arrangements in certain areas," May said. * * * Earlier: Having been extensively leaked overnight so as to prevent "market surprises", Theresa May has just begun her speech calling for a "clean Brexit" from the EU. Watch it live below.   The prime minister said that Britain would seek “a new and equal partnership” with the other 27 countries in the EU — not “anything that leaves us half-in, half-out”. As she started speaking, Philip Hammond, the chancellor, appeared to confirm that Britain would leave the single market. “We can’t be members of the Single Market because of the red lines around the four freedoms [of people, goods, services and capital] that other EU members have set,” he told the House of Commons. "They have to recognise our red lines, we have to recognise theirs, and then we have to find a pragmatic solution that works for all sides.” The pound jumped higher after Mrs May started her speech, accelerating after early gains. Sterling was as much as 1.9 per cent higher at $1.2278 before easing to trade 1.6 per cent stronger at $1.2250. In the most important part of the speech, May confirmed that both houses of parliament would have a vote on the final Brexit deal – expected in early 2019. It was not clear what would happen if either house were to reject the deal. May also said that British voters had chosen Brexit “with their eyes open”, reiterating her stance that the result of June’s referendum is irreversible. “It was the moment we chose to build a truly global Britain,” she told an audience including ambassadors, high commissioners and her own Brexit negotiating team at London’s Lancaster House. The UK Supreme Court is expected to rule this month on whether the Article 50 process needs the prior approval of parliament and of devolved administrations. May has said that the March deadline will not be postponed, whatever the court’s ruling. Taking Britain out of the single market contrasts with the Conservatives’ 2015 election manifesto, in which the party pledged, “We say: yes to the Single Market”. * * * Here are the key statements from Marketnews: MAY: WE WILL NOT SEEK PARTIAL OR ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP OF EU MAY: WHAT I PROPOSE MEANS CANNOT BE MEMBER OF SINGLE MARKET MAY: UK LEAVING EU, I WILL SEEK BEST DEAL FOR UK MAY: GOVERNMENT WILL PUT THE FINAL BREXIT DEAL TO A VOTE IN BOTH HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT MAY: DO NOT SEEK TO ADOPT MODEL ALREADY USED BY OTHER COUNTRIES MAY: WILL REMAIN WILLING PARTNERS, ALLIES TRADING PARTNERS MAY: DECISION TO LEAVE EU WAS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO HARM EU OR ITS MEMBER STATES MAY: VOTE NO LEAVE NO REJECTION OF SHARED VALUES MAY: OVERWHELMINGLY IN UK INTEREST THAT EU SUCCEEDS MAY: JUNE 23 A MOMENT WE CHOSE TO BUILD 'TRULY GLOBAL BRITAIN' MAY: EUROPEANS WILL STILL BE WELCOME IN BRITAIN AND HOPE BRITONS WILL BE WELCOME IN EU NATIONS MAY: PRESERVATION OF UK UNION AT HEART OF PLANS MAY: WILL REGAIN CONTRAOL OF IMMIGRANTS FROM EU MAY: UK MUST REMAIN OPEN TO INT'L TALENT, MUST BE MANAGED MAY: NO NEW BARRIERS TO TRADE IN UK MUST APPEAR AFTER BREXIT MAY: WE AIM FROM GREATEST POSSIBLE FTA WITH EU MAY: WE WANT TO GUARANTEE RIGHTS OF EX-PAT UK, EU CITIZENS MAY: WANT CUSTOMS AGREEMENT WITH EU, CANNOT BE CUNION MEMBER MAY: ANNUAL VAST CONTRIBUTIONS TO EU WILL END MAY: NO SINGLE MKT MEMBERSHIP MEANS NO LARGE PAYMENTS TO EU MAY: WILL NOT SEEK MSHIP OF SINGLE MARKET, BUT GREATEST ACCESS MAY: WILL CONTINUE TO COOPERATE WITH EU ON CRIME, TERRORISM MAY: `CLIFF-EDGE' AFTER BREXIT IN NO ONE'S INTEREST MAY: WE WILL MAKE OUR OWN DECISIONS TO WHAT IMMIGRATION IS MAY: LOOKING AT EXACT SYSTEM TO BE USED FOR IMMIGRATION MAY: NO DEAL WITH EU IS BETTER THAN BAD DEAL WITH EU FOR UK And in an unexpected twist, May also said that she will put the final Brexit deal to a vote in both houses of parliament: MAY:  WILL PUT THE FINAL BREXIT DEAL TO A VOTE IN BOTH HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT Cable is soaring on the news, as suddenly there is a possibiliy Brexit may not happen at all.

Theresa May’s cabinet: pretty rich, but nothing on Trump’s

Britain’s ministers may not have the absurd wealth of the US’s incoming administration, but, led by the newly flush Jeremy Hunt, there are plenty of multi-millionaires round the Cabinet Room tableThe NHS winter crisis may be growing but at least Jeremy Hunt can console himself with a reported £14.5 payout. The health secretary helped set up the online education listings business Hotcourses in 1996, and it is reported to have been sold for more than £30m. It will make him the richest member of the cabinet, although Britain’s pales in comparison with the cabinet Donald Trump is amassing, so far worth a collective $4.5bn (£3.7bn). Here are some of the cabinet’s relative paupers. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on shorter working hours: not just for the rich | Editorial

Success in a caring profession can’t be measured by productivityPhilip Hammond threatened in his interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag to turn Britain into a low-tax offshore sweatshop, although he expressed a personal preference for a European model of social organisation. Just how distant his preference is from his threats is clear from some recent developments in Europe: the French have passed a law limiting the use of email out of hours; the Dutch and Finns are thinking about a universal basic income, and in Sweden the city of Gothenburg is evaluating an experiment that allowed care workers in an old people’s home to work six-hour shifts instead of eight-hour ones for the same full-time pay and benefits.The idea has been tried on a small scale elsewhere in Sweden many times over the last 10 years, but almost always at “creative” or desk-based jobs. Dedicated physical work, as is involved in a care home, seems an entirely different category. Successive scandals at Amazon, Sports Direct, and similar places have accustomed us to the idea that a modern economy is distinguished by the most sophisticated possible exploitation of the workers who actually move things (or even humans) around by those who manipulate algorithms and exhort the rest of us to productivity.

Theresa May To Call For "Clean And Hard Brexit" As UK Warns Of "Market Correction"

While the track record of the Sunday Times over the past 24 hours is somewhat spotty, following a report that as his foreign trip abroad once officially president, Trump is planning a summit with Putin in Reykjavik, which in turn was promptly denied by Trump staffers who called the story "fantasy", overnight the paper also reported that UK Prime Minister Theresa May will announce that Britain is "seeking a clean and hard Brexit" in a speech this week that will promise to create a “strong new partnership” with the European Union. The paper further notes that in the speech, scheduled for Tuesday, the PM will "finally lay her cards on the table", making clear that the UK is set to pull out of the single market and the European customs union in return for the ability to curb immigration, strike commercial deals with other countries, and escape the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, the Sunday Times said without saying how it obtained the information.  In a separate interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, May's finance chief, Philip Hammond, said Britain would be willing to abandon “mainstream economic and social thinking” if it is unable to craft a favorable post-Brexit EU deal. Hammond said he hoped the U.K. could remain in the mainstream, but was prepared for the consequences for a hard Brexit. “If we have no access to the European market, if we are closed off, if Britain were to leave the European Union without an agreement on market access, then we could suffer from economic damage at least in the short-term. In this case, we could be forced to change our economic model and we will have to change our model to regain competitiveness. And you can be sure we will do whatever we have to do.” To avoid fallout from the breakup and grant businesses some certainty over the outlook, May will seek a transitional phase between splitting from the EU and the beginning of a new trading relationship, the Sunday Times said, citing Brexit Secretary David Davis. “We don’t want the EU to fail, we want it to prosper politically and economically, and we need to persuade our allies that a strong new partnership with the U.K. will help the EU to do that,’’ Davis wrote in the newspaper. “If it proves necessary, we have said we will consider time for implementation of new arrangements.’’ The market is likely to have an adverse reaction to the leaked (if unconfirmed speech): as Bloomberg points out, "May’s blueprint for Brexit risks alarming investors, bankers and company executives who will fret that May is prioritizing social issues over economic growth." A Downing Street source said that May had “gone for the full works”, although the prime minister’s staff admitted her words were likely to cause a “market correction” that could lead to a fresh fall in the pound. Of course, that may be inaccurate, because as the recent record streak of 14-winning days in the British FTSE100 index to daily record highs has shown, the one thing that UK stocks like more than anything, is a crashing currency and the uncertainty that comes from a "hard Brexit."   Perhaps this time will be different. The PM's office refused to comment on the report when contacted by Bloomberg, while in separate statement it said that May will declare in her speech that having divided over Brexit, voters are now uniting behind making it a success. “The overwhelming majority of people - however they voted - say we need to get on and make Brexit happen,” May will say. “So the country is coming together.” Separately, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, who has come under fire in recent months for being too involved in the Brexit debate, is also due to deliver a speech on Monday evening in London although the has declined to comment on what he will discuss. More from Bloomberg: Speaking on the BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show” on Sunday, U.K. opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said May “appears to be heading us in the direction of a sort of bargain-basement economy on the shores of Europe.” “We will lose access to half of our export markets -- it seems to me an extremely risk strategy,” he said.   The Sunday Telegraph reported that the opposition Labour Party will introduce an amendment in the House of Commons demanding that members get to vote on a final Brexit deal, and if defeated they will speak out in the House of Lords to urge the government to make the guarantee of a vote. In many ways May is motivated to finally engage the Article 50 process, as staying in the customs union would prevent the U.K. from lining up free-trade pacts with non-EU countries such as the U.S. and China. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson returned from a trip to the U.S. last week saying he’d been told President-elect Donald Trump’s administration will want a fast trade pact with Britain. Meanwhile, European leaders including Angela Merkel have held steadfast to the line that they won’t allow May to “cherry pick’’ the best parts of membership without accepting the responsibilities, including allowing free movement of labor. That requirement has become a pressure point in the U.K. with net migration to the U.K. from the EU reaching 189,000 in the year ended June. May has repeatedly indicated she views June’s referendum as a call from voters to slash that number. As Bloomberg concludes, "Tuesday’s speech is likely to be closely watched by the financial markets, with currency traders increasingly seeing May’s pronouncements on Brexit as a trigger to sell the pound. Sterling fell following her speech at the Conservative Party conference in October, which fanned speculation she was eyeing a clean break with the EU, and dropped again following her first television interview of 2017." It remains to be seen if May's hard line speech will lead to a spike in sterling volatility, which coming in an illiquid session due to the US MLK holiday on Monday, may result in yet another flash crash in the British currency, and if it will also lead to another all time high in the FTSE100 index.
