Gina Miller slams incoming Bank boss Andrew Bailey

first_img Gina Miller calls for review of Andrew Bailey’s Bank of England role after ‘toxic’ FCA tenure Business owner and campaigner Gina Miller (DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP via Getty Images) Campaigner and asset management boss Gina Miller today called for a review of Andrew Bailey’s appointment as governor of the Bank of England after his “toxic” tenure as head of the City watchdog. James Booth Miller said: “The report we have published today makes it clear Mr Bailey is not a fit and proper person to be the next governor of the Bank of England.” Miller’s True and Fair campaign today published as a report called “Asleep at the wheel” about the string of City scandals during Bailey’s time as chief executive of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). whatsapp Miller and her husband Alan Miller co-founded wealth management firm SCM Direct. They have been frequent critics of the FCA’s regulation of funds, previously calling for Bailey’s resignation over the Woodford scandal. The report accuses the FCA of a string of errors, including the failure to investigate a complaint by a whistle-blower against the Hbos Group, the failure to publish its independent report into the treatment of Royal Bank of Scotland business customers and its failure to respond to whistleblower warnings about London Capital & Finance which collapsed leaving 11,600 customers with losses of up to £236m. “On his watch, hundreds of thousands of Britons have lost money – in many cases, losing their life savings which has devastated their lives, families and businesses,” she added. “Andrew Bailey’s tenure as CEO of the FCA has been characterised by a toxic cocktail of negligence, incompetence and indifference to the needs of ordinary depositors, investors and pensioners,” Miller said. “Were he to be confirmed in this highly responsible and prominent role, it would be a gross betrayal of the government’s duty to protect consumers, and a textbook example of rewarding failure.” Miller called for new chancellor Rishi Sunak to launch an urgent review of Bailey’s appointment to succeed Mark Carney and urged the Treasury Committee to review the process to appoint him.

The Bank of England declined to comment. The Treasury was contacted for comment. It also highlighted the FCA’s failure to prevent the Woodford scandal in which hundreds of thousands of investors lost millions and the suspension of illiquid funds such as the M&G Property Fund. whatsapp An FCA spokesperson said: “We utterly reject these claims which contain numerous inaccuracies and are made with little understanding of the role of the FCA. We have disagreed with the Millers on numerous issues relating to the investment industry, and our oversight of it, over recent years and we note their previous calls on Andrew to resign.

Canadian police revisiting more than 10,000 dismissed sexual assault cases

first_imgNation & World | NPR News | Public Safety | Sexual Abuse & Domestic ViolenceCanadian police revisiting more than 10,000 dismissed sexual assault casesFebruary 13, 2017 by Camila Domonoske, NPR Share:After a newspaper investigation concluded that one-fifth of all sexual assault complaints in Canada were dismissed as “unfounded,” or baseless — a far higher percentage than for other types of crime — police forces across the country are revisiting old cases.In total, police forces are reviewing more than 10,000 rape and assault allegations that were dismissed as “unfounded,” The Globe and Mail reports.The newspaper previously reported that from 2010-2014, more than 27,000 such cases were given that designation, meaning they effectively disappeared from the Canadian justice system.The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are reviewing all such cases from 2016 as well as a “sample” of previous allegations, the CBC reports. A number of local police forces are revisiting old cases, as well — sometimes voluntarily, the broadcaster says, and sometimes at the demand of a civilian oversight board.The police chief of London, Ontario, has apologized to victims, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his administration would “do more” on the issue.The flurry of responses were prompted by an investigation published by the Globe and Mail earlier this month.The newspaper found that the number of sexual assault cases dismissed as “unfounded” was unusually high compared with other alleged crimes. The categorization means no crime had been attempted or committed. Such cases don’t factor into a police force’s crime statistics.Because the number of unfounded cases wasn’t made public, reporter Robyn Doolittle sent hundreds of freedom of information requests to police forces across Canada. She found that nationwide more than 19 percent of sexual assault cases were dismissed as “unfounded” — nearly twice the rate for physical assault, and far higher than the rate for other crimes.Here’s more from the Globe and Mail‘s original report:“True unfounded cases, which arise from malicious or mistaken reports, are rare. Between 2 per cent and 8 per cent of complaints are false reports, according to research from North America, the United Kingdom and Australia. The Globe’s findings suggest that police in Canada are closing a disproportionate number of rape cases as unfounded, a phenomenon that distorts the country’s crime statistics.“Inflated unfounded rates create the impression that police receive fewer complaints of sexual assault than they actually do. In turn, that gives the appearance that more complaints lead to an arrest.”The report also found “vast discrepancies” between jurisdictions — meaning that a person who reported a rape had very different odds of being believed by police officers, depending on where she or he lived.Police in Windsor, Ontario, dismissed 3 percent of assault allegations as unfounded; in London, Ontario, police dismissed 30 percent. Winnipeg police “unfounded” just 66 of 3,483 allegations. Police in Saint John, New Brunswick, dismissed 312 of 617.Most people whose cases were closed as unfounded were never told by police that their allegations had been dismissed. In some cases, police marked the cases as baseless without conducting interviews with witnesses or suspects.In one incident more than a decade ago, police dismissed as “unfounded” the case of a 13-year-old girl who had been impregnated and told police the father was a 27-year-old man. Authorities discredited her account, apparently without ever conducting a paternity test.The Globe‘s investigation opens with the 2010 story of a college student in London, Ontario, who told police she was raped — outdoors, with bystanders taking photos or videos as she told the man to stop, she said. In a videotaped interview, a police detective told her that her clothes weren’t “torn or anything,” erroneously said that her account of a sudden blackout while drinking wasn’t plausible, and suggested she “maybe the sex was consensual” and she was more upset by the voyeurism.A suspect was contacted and “warned,” police said, but the case was closed as unfounded.That case was reopened by police after the Globe approached the police force for comment.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Anchorage police arrest dozens in ‘Operation Midnight Sun’

first_imgCrime & Courts | SouthcentralAnchorage police arrest dozens in ‘Operation Midnight Sun’June 23, 2018 by Casey Grove, Alaska Public Media Share:Dozens of alleged criminals were swept up this week in what Anchorage police are calling “Operation Midnight Sun.”Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Police say uniformed and undercover officers worked with state and federal law enforcement agencies over the course of several days during the coordinated, street-level crime suppression operation.Police say the operation resulted in the seizure of nearly 20 guns, a little less than a pound of drugs and five stolen vehicles. It also led to a total of about 60 felony charges or arrests for outstanding warrants, including the arrest of one man on a murder charge.Around 100 uniformed and undercover officers, including aerial support from Alaska State Troopers, were split into eight teams and conducted a variety of crime suppression activities all over Anchorage in “Operation Midnight Sun.” (Photo courtesy of the Anchorage Police Department)Anchorage police lieutenant Jack Carson says Operation Midnight Sun went beyond the department’s day-to-day police work to do something more proactive.“Crime suppression is actually going out and targeting criminal activity before they can victimize somebody,” Carson said. “So, we’re taking it to ’em prior to that, so we’re actually going out there and seeking them out and arresting them.”Anchorage police say the operation brought together the FBI, ATF, DEA and others. It also included an Alaska State Troopers helicopter helping spot and track suspects from the air.Carson says that required a highly coordinated effort.“You know, it’s one of the biggest operations that we’ve run with all of our federal partners,” Carson said. “We’re doing this type of stuff everyday,but just not to this level.”Anchorage police say the operation was possible because the department has increased the number of officers on the force and noted that Anchorage residents can expect similar coordinated efforts in the future.Share this story:last_img read more

News / Whitehall unveils route for new Thames crossing to link with M2

first_img© Chris Moncrieff | – Dartford River Crossing By Gavin van Marle 12/04/2017 The UK government has announced the route for the new Thames crossing to supplement links that have become increasingly congested.The preferred route for the Lower Thames Crossing will run between the M25 at North Ockendon, east of Tilbury, under the Thames to linkup with the A2 that links up with the M2 to Dover.It is expected to carry 4,500,000 freight vehicles in its first year of operation, although no dates for construction have been announced. Over the next year, the Highways Agency will decide on the exact details of the route and links to existing roads.The government has also announced a £66m investment to widen the A13 Stanford-le-Hope bypass from two to three lanes, which it said would “unlock the development of hundreds of new houses and improve links to Tilbury and London Gateway ports”.Charles Hammond, chief executive of Forth Ports, which owns the port of Tilbury, welcomed the decision, but said his support was dependent on a new junction being built directly into the port itself.“This investment is as much about north-south connectivity, as east-west road links on and off the motorway.“It is vital that nationally significant transport operations like the port of Tilbury have high-quality and reliable road connections. That’s why we will maintain the case for an all-moves junction off the new motorway into the expanding port area,” he said.Christian Brodie, chairman of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “The benefits go far beyond Kent and Essex. With the current Dartford Crossing already operating at capacity and freight traffic continuing to grow, the new crossing will also support the government’s wider economic aspirations for the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine.”Port of Dover chief executive Tim Waggott added: “Dover handles up to £119bn of trade, or 17% of the UK’s trade in goods, and is vital to the UK’s trading relationship with Europe – our largest and nearest trading partner. Half of its freight traffic is heading beyond London to support economic activity in the Midlands Engine and Northern Powerhouse government priority areas.“With freight traffic through Dover growing by a third in only four years, and with a forecast 40% growth in freight traffic by the end of the next decade, it is essential that traffic fluidity is enhanced on this key trade corridor connecting the rest of the UK with mainland Europe.”However, some transport campaigners argue that the trade-off between environmental considerations and the UK’s freight transport needs could be better served.Bridget Fox, sustainable transport campaigner at the Campaign for Better Transport, said: “Building a major new road through protected countryside is not the right way to address the long-standing problems of traffic, much of it HGVs, through Kent.“Instead of squandering billions on yet another expensive new road that will inevitably fill up with traffic, leading to more congestion, a better solution would be to expand port capacity north of the Thames, improve freight and passenger rail links to Kent and look at measures like distance-based HGV charging to better manage traffic.”last_img read more

Florida vaccine site overrun after false rumors said all could come

first_imgAdvertisementThe site, run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, administers 500 doses per day. It had enforced Gov. Ron DeSantis’ rules Saturday morning, but when it became clear not enough eligible people would arrive, the workers invited anyone in for a shot. That is not unusual — many drugstores, for example, will inject anyone in the store at closing time if they have leftover vaccines that would spoil otherwise.Social media spread the news Saturday and people came from miles to the small town on the Florida peninsula’s southern tip to get their shots. Florida nursing homes report COVID-19 infection rates nearly double the national average June 16, 2021 FLORIDA CITY, Fla. — A Florida vaccination site had so few eligible takers Saturday that it started inoculating any adult who wanted a shot rather than let the vaccine on hand go to waste.Word spread and on Sunday the Florida City site was overwhelmed, particularly after local state Sen. Annette Taddeo incorrectly tweeted that the federally run site would again take all comers. The Democrat, who was the party’s lieutenant governor candidate in 2014, later deleted that tweet and corrected herself.Police had to calm the crowd Sunday when the site again enforced the state’s eligibility rules: 65 and older; frontline medical workers and police officers, teachers and firefighters over 50; and younger people with a physician’s note saying they would be endangered if they caught the virus.According to the Miami Herald, a Florida City police officer through a megaphone told 200 people waiting in line, “If you do not meet the criteria, you will not be vaccinated today.” Vaccines must be refrigerated at extremely cold temperatures and used that day once they are removed.

Physics Of Sound Is Topic Of May 26 CU Wizards Show

first_img Published: May 9, 2001 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The scientific aspects of sound and air pressure will be explained when CU Wizard Michael Dubson presents his show “Boom! The Physics of Sound and Air Pressure,” on Saturday, May 26, at 9:30 a.m. in Duane Physics, room G1B30. During the free hour-long show, Dubson, who is a senior instructor in the physics department at the University of Colorado at Boulder, will implode a 50-gallon steel drum using air pressure, create a sonic boom with a bullwhip and stage a tug-of-war with the pressure of the atmosphere. Dubson and the audience will explore the sounds made by several exotic musical instruments including an electronic theremin, which emits sounds when a hand is waved in the air near its antenna. The audience also will learn how sound waves are made, why they can be heard and what makes some sounds “musical.” Dubson said he will be handing out colored cards to the audience at the beginning of the show, and they will vote on answers to questions asked by raising colored cards. Other highlights of the show include an exploding hydrogen balloon, a strobe light on a vibrating drumhead and a bed of nails. CU Wizards is a monthly series during the academic year that introduces topics in astronomy, chemistry and physics. Though intended primarily for students in grades five through nine, the shows are educational and entertaining to persons of any age. Dubson was one of two CU-Boulder faculty members featured in an educational program that aired on Denver’s CBS television station KCNC-TV last November. The two-week series “Convection Connection” featured News4 anchor Larry Green, Alex Weaver, former K-12 outreach director at CU’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, and Dubson. The award-winning series featured experiments to explain the scientific concept of convection. The final CU Wizards show of the spring, “Black Holes,” is on Saturday, June 16, at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The show will feature Professor Andrew Hamilton of the astrophysical and planetary sciences department at CU-Boulder. Free parking for the May 26 show is available in lot 169 northeast of Folsom Stadium off Folsom Street, lot 396 off Stadium Drive, lot 436 east of the Engineering Center and lot 308 south of Regent Drive and west of Kittredge Loop Road. Parking also is available in the Euclid Avenue Autopark for a nominal fee. Anyone with a disability or special need should notify the physics office at (303) 492-6952 a few days prior to the show.
