By analysing migrants’ share of all public services costs and comparing it to their economic contribution between 1995 and 2011, researchers at University College London showed EU migrants added £4.4bn more to the public purse than they took out over the 17 year period. By comparison, immigrants from outside Europe made an overall negative contribution of £118bn, while UK-born workers made an even larger negative contribution of £591bn. Professor Christian Dustmann, co-author of the study, said: A key concern in the public debate on migration is whether immigrants contribute their fair share to the tax and welfare systems. 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.

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 2016

Twitter Emo Rounders Emo U-14 Boys and Girls travelled to The Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence near Ballyhaunis in Mayo to compete in the All-Ireland Féile na nGael Rounders finals at the weekend.And both sides returned to Laois with All-Ireland medals in their back pockets.Emo Boys started off with a loss in the group stages against near neighbours The Heath. This was the wake-up call the boys needed as they met Na Fianna next from Dublin, whom they then defeated.Next up was The All-Ireland Semi Final and a meeting with Breaffy from Mayo. The boys appeared to be getting stronger and more cohesive as the game progressed and Breaffy were to prove to be no match for the Emo lads who ran out as comfortable winners.Emo were well up for the final, and who else should they be playing in an All-Ireland final other than their great rivals, The Heath.The Heath boys hadn’t been beaten all day but unfortunately for them, their one loss on the day was to be in the final.Emo were ruthless from the beginning and with Dave Costello and Brochan O’Reilly moving outfield to be replaced by Jamie O’Connor bowling and Callum Keegan at backstop, Emo were rock solid in all positions.Emo boys won the final with relative ease, to ease the pain of having lost the Final in the same competition to The Heath last year.This win was all the more remarkable as Emo Boys won the U-13 All-Ireland Final last year, with only four players from last year’s team playing U-14 on Saturday. Also, only one of the boys, Eddie McEvoy, is overage for U-14 next year.Emo U14 Boys team: Padraig Langford (Captain), Eddie McEvoy, Brochan O’Reilly, David Costello, Jack Murphy, Darragh Keegan, Noah Dunne, Charlie Hand, Monty Balfe, Aidan O’Donnell, Callum Keegan and Jamie O’ConnorAt the same time as Emo Boys were playing their matches, so too were Emo U-14 Girls. These girls, many of whom already have 3 or 4 All-Ireland medals were determined not to be beaten on the day.In their group games they easily accounted for Cuchulainn from Carlow and Breaffy from Mayo.In the All-Ireland Semi Final they were pitted against Easkey from Sligo, whom they defeated in the All-Ireland U-13 Final last year. Yet again they were to defeat Easkey and set the stage for an All-Ireland final against Athenry from Galway.Many of the Emo Girls had already tasted All-Ireland success against this Athenry team, having beaten them in the U-13 Community games All-Ireland final in 2017.This was to be the girls’ toughest match of the day, but nonetheless, the Emo Girls weren’t going to be stopped on their way to All-Ireland glory.This is an exceptional group of girls, most of whom have been playing together for the last three or four years. They are ladies off the pitch but demons on the pitch and don’t give an inch to the opposition.Emo U14 Girls team: Anna Hanlon (Captain), Siún Donnelly, Niamh Conroy, Saoirse Booth, Alice Kerins, Anouska Dunne, Hannah Booth, Gráinne Keogh, Aisling Loughnane, Ciara Crowley, Chloe Keenan and Caoimhe Dooley.SEE ALSO – Leinster Final sizzler on the cards as temperatures set to soar Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Community Facebook Home Sport Other Sport Double All-Ireland Feile Rounders glory for Emo SportOther Sport Pinterest Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’ Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad WhatsApp Five Laois monuments to receive almost €200,000 in government funding By Alan Hartnett – 20th June 2018 Rugby
News PSI Meeting Coming to Seoul There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade will host a meeting of the Proliferation Security Initiative Operational Experts Group (OEG) in Seoul next week.

Analysis & Opinion Daily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] Is Nuclear Peace with North Korea Possible? The number of Chinese tourists taking the short trip to North Korea keeps on increasing, notably since Pyongyang embraced a handful of partner agencies to offer a range of tour packages as a means of earning foreign currency. Employing all the normal tools of the trade, the authorities have opened up many parts of the east coast of the country, letting groups of cyclists and golfers pass through. Chosun Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on the subject earlier this week in a piece entitled ‘The new specialist tour itineraries of Chosun.’ In it, a reporter waxed lyrical about a tour of Mt. Baekdu via Air Koryo and a second specialist tour by bicycle, declaring, “The newly created tour schedules are attracting international attention.” The piece also noted that a mini golf tour is to start next year.At the same time, resourceful Chinese travel agencies are working together with the North Korean state travel authorities to create other new tour packages by air, sea and road, including but not limited to a route from Shenyang to Pyongyang and Dalian to Mt. Geumgang.The whole edifice rests firmly on the enjoyment certain Chinese age groups get from visiting North Korea. Many older people remember it as a place that used to be just like China, indeed at one time was considered a better place to live. In modern China with its breakneck growth rates, North Korea harks back to a different, and to some people a better, age.In the words of a Daily NK source from Dandong, “Many Chinese people just want to go to North Korea to see the primitive methods they still use; farming with oxen and that kind of thing.” Another source, a trader from Dandong, commented, “You can see Shinuiju really easily from the banks of the Yalu River, and unlike the vibrancy of China it is pitch black over there. Obviously, this generates curiosity in a lot of Chinese people.” “North Korea is actively employing the image of a ‘hermit kingdom’ or a ‘closed country’ to attract curious Chinese tourists,” the trader added.The fact that Chinese citizens can enter North Korea on only a passport is another reason why more and more are making the journey. It’s not that much fun in reality, but that doesn’t seem to matter. “The tourists come home saying that ‘they do not ever want to go back’,” the source commented. However, “A good many people who want to go haven’t been yet, so I don’t see the numbers dropping any time soon.” SHARE Analysis & Opinion RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter By Daily NK – 2012.10.10 3:51pm Tracking the “unidentified yellow substance” being dried out near the Yongbyon Nuclear Center Analysis & Opinion Analysis & Opinion North Korea Embracing Hermit Illusion Pence Cartoon: “KOR-US Karaoke”
Market for advice improving, but slowly: FCA James Langton Regulators sticking to their plan British regulators said Wednesday they have found that some life insurance firms are trying to circumvent rules adopted to eliminate commission bias in financial advice. At the start of the year, new rules took effect in the UK, known as the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) rules, which aim to improve retail investor protection by enhancing advisors’ proficiency requirements and outlawing embedded commissions, among other things. Australian regulator aims to address fee problems On Wednesday, the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) reported that it has found some life insurance firms introduced arrangements that could influence advisors, contrary to the RDR’s aim of removing commission bias. The FCA said its review of the practices of 26 life insurers and advisory firms found: some payments by life insurers to advisory firms (for things such as research and sales support) appeared to be linked to product sales; arrangements that incentivized advisory firms to promote a specific provider’s product to their advisors; and, certain joint ventures between insurers and advisory firms that, it says, could create conflicts of interest and potentially lead to biased advice. Two of those firms have been referred to enforcement as the FCA identified potential rule breaches in those cases, it said. And, it reported that many of the firms have since changed these arrangements to comply with the rules. “The changes we made to the retail investment advice sector were designed to mark a step change in the way advice was given. It signaled the end of advice that might be influenced by the commission payments made by product providers to advisory firms, and the start of a new era of trust and transparency between a firm and its customers. The findings of this review reveal that the actions of some firms have the effect of undermining the objectives of the RDR,” said Clive Adamson, the FCA’s director of supervision. “Most the firms involved in the review have already made changes, which are welcome, but we want all firms in this market to review and, if necessary revise their existing arrangements. We will revisit this area in the future to check that the necessary improvements have been made,” he added. The FCA also published proposed new guidance to explain why the FCA thinks certain payments may cause conflicts of interest. Consultation on that guidance is open until October 18.
