Our new analysis draws a positive picture of the overall fiscal contribution made by recent immigrant cohorts, particularly of immigrants arriving from the EU. European immigrants, particularly, both from the new accession countries and the rest of the European Union, make the most substantial contributions. This is mainly down to their higher average labour market participation compared with natives and their lower receipt of welfare benefits. In fact, the report shows the UK government would have to spend £6.8bn on education to match the educational standards brought into the country by the EU migrants.  £1 PER HEADBased on the figures provided, MigrationWatch UK calculated that the overall contribution made by EU migrants to the UK amounts to under £1 per head per week. Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the think tank, told the Today programme: “As for recent European migrants, even on their own figures – which we dispute – their contribution to the exchequer amounts to less than £1 a week per head of our population.” He added that people in the UK would have to decide whether the extra pressure placed by the migrants on services was worth an extra £1 a week.  Cost of immigration to the UK: EU migrants add more to the economy than UK citizens whatsappcenter_img Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndozenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comUndoThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoNational Penny For Seniors7 Discounts Seniors Only Get If They AskNational Penny For SeniorsUndoMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekUndoinvesting.comThe Military Spent $1 Billion On this New Vehicle, And Here’s The First Lookinvesting.comUndoMedical MattersThis Picture Shows Who Prince Harry’s Father Really IsMedical MattersUndoEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorUndo Show Comments ▼ Tags: UK immigration Sharelast_img read more

David Cameron warns voters not to abandon Tories ahead of 2015 general election

first_imgDavid Cameron has done an about-turn on the economy, Labour’s Ed Miliband said yesterday. The Prime Minister, Miliband continued, was getting his excuses in early about the state of the UK’s finances, having spent months shouting about the strength of Britain’s recovery.  About-turn or not, building on the “there is still more to do” message Cameron delivered in a speech at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) last week appears to be a core message for the Conservatives ahead of the election, in a bid to convince voters not to vote Labour in May. The Conservatives poll consistently well when it comes to handling the economy and this parliament is no different. Both George Osborne and Cameron have strong personal poll ratings and score highly in questions about their leadership skills and competency to govern, especially when compared with Labour.  But the Tories know that they do much worse on the issues that traditionally gain support following a period of austerity – namely rebuilding public services and boosting education and welfare systems.  Although the appetite for increasing spending on benefits and the like has waned in recent years, it’s not enough for the Conservatives to be comfortably in the lead on these issues. Cameron knows he must therefore tread a fine line between wanting people to feel like things are on the up, and wanting them to remain cautious about the future. In other words, the Prime Minister doesn’t want us to think we’re out of the woods yet and demand a splurge on the NHS and schools, both issues most associated with Labour.  There are a number of legitimate economic reasons for this. It’s not just about winning an election. But it’s unsurprising that Cameron warned that “red warning lights are once again flashing on the dashboard of the global economy”. It serves his purpose to wave the prospect of another period of economic instability in front of voters’ faces and using Europe, an issue many people already feel wary about to do it, is actually pretty clever. The result, the Prime Minister hopes, will be that people are more receptive to his long-term economic plan if they feel their financial stability is at risk without it. It’s the politics of fear at its finest.  The problem is, business leaders aren’t really buying it. Both the Institute of Directors (IoD) and the CBI agree that while things in the Eurozone are looking shaky, no political party in the UK can protect the country from the inevitable fallout. On issues such as Ebola and Ukraine, the IoD counters that these may prompt uncertainy in markets, but they have little quantifiable impact on the economy overall.  “Problems in the Eurozone will have a huge impact on the UK regardless. It doesn’t matter who is in charge,” James Sproule, chief economist at the IoD said yesterday. But party leaders were undoubtedly being cautious about the recovery, he added, noting that most business leaders had confidence that the UK is on the up again, with growth predicted next year. Rain Newton-Smith, the CBI’s director of economics, echoed concerns about the effect of Eurozone sluggishness on UK exports but also added the economy was expected to remain “on track”.  So is Cameron over-egging the pudding? Perhaps, yes. While the UK isn’t out of the woods yet, most signs point away from financial chaos. But reminding voters of the risks, particularly ahead of the Autumn Statement, isn’t a bad political move for Cameron to make.    Share whatsapp More From Our Partners Fort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com whatsapp Monday 17 November 2014 9:19 pm Tags: David Cameron General Election 2015 People Show Comments ▼ David Cameron warns voters not to abandon Tories ahead of 2015 general election Kate McCannKate McCann is a reporter at City A.M.

It will then re-list as Tui AG on 17 December.  Between them, the two companies will own more than 300 hotels, 12 cruise ships, six airlines including Thompson, and will have 77,000 employees.It’s expected the merger will generate €65m cost savings.Earlier this month, Tui figures showing that although the strong pound had affected hit trading in the year to the end of September, things were still going swimmingly: winter holiday bookings rose one per cent on the previous year, while advance bookings for summer holidays next year rose 9 per cent and average selling prices rose two per cent.However, revenue on a statutory basis fell to £14.6bn, from £15.1bn last year, although pre-tax profits rose from £169m in 2013 to £362m this year, thanks to lower impairment charges and fewer one-off costs.Yesterday credit ratings agency Moody’s upgraded Tui to Ba3, from B2, in part because of the merger.Sven Reinke, the company’s senior analyst for Tui, said “improvements in Tui’s underlying operating profitability and financial profile” added to Moody’s confidence. last_img read more

TSB chief Paul Pester: Seven day bank account switching service fails too many people

first_imgThe bank account switching service does not help customers who rely on overdrafts, TSB Bank chief Paul Pester complained yesterday.It is harder for those customers to move, letting the big banks keep hold of them – and their juicy fees – with little competition, he claimed.“Those customers who could benefit most from switching their bank accounts, those who are heavy overdraft users, those who incur other fees, are only half as likely to switch as other customers,” the TSB chief told think-tank New City Agenda in parliament. “As good as the switching service is, it doesn’t allow customers to transfer their overdrafts, which many customers rely on to run their lives day to day.”Banks typically wait until they have many months of transaction data before they offer a new customer an overdraft, so those who rely on the service are unlikely to risk switching.“Small switching numbers magnify the advantages enjoyed by the large incumbent banks, who can use the profits generated by the large pools of very valuable customers – the overdraft users, who are less likely to switch – to maintain their market share. And that is a barrier to entry to new players,” Pester said.

However, Shapps, a known fan of the occasional gin and tonic, is thought to be highly sympathetic to the cause of reducing the duty on spirits, to help UK distillers.The Conservatives point out that they have already reduced alcohol duty in recent years. They say a bottle of Scotch whisky is now 42p cheaper than it would have been under plans for a duty escalator that Labour put forward. whatsapp Express KCS Show Comments ▼ Share Tory chair Grant Shapps hints at Budget cut in alcohol duty Tags: Budget 2016last_img read more

Gatwick had 2.96m passengers pass through its doors during March 2015, an increase of 9.2 per cent on the year before. Last month was Gatwick’s twenty-fifth consecutive month of increasing passenger numbers.Both airports saw growth on long haul routes.The figures come as the rival airports continue to campaign hard to receive the nod for expansion from Sir Howard Davies, whose commission on airport expansion will deliver its findings after the General Election. It will determine the possible options for expanding Heathrow or Gatwick.Heathrow chief executive John Holland-Kaye said: “We can create jobs right across Britain if we make it easy to get there from anywhere in the UK… expanding Heathrow will connect all of Britain to global growth. Now, let’s get on with it.”Gatwick’s chief executive, Stewart Wingate, put his case forward: “Expanding Gatwick would promote competition in the airport sector and keep travel affordable at a time of economic recovery.” Monday 13 April 2015 9:03 pm Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndozenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comUndoMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekUndoPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunUndoComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyUndoGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday NewsUndoEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorUndoBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlushUndoNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyUndolast_img read more
