Labour leadership hopeful Lisa Nandy says party should have been ‘bold’ on free movement

first_imgWednesday 15 January 2020 2:10 pm Catherine Neilan whatsapp Labour MP Lisa Nandy is running to succeed Jeremy Corbyn (Getty Images) whatsapp Main image: Getty Labour should have been “bold enough to defend free movement” while the party formulated its Brexit position, leadership hopeful Lisa Nandy has said. Alongside “radical investment”, free movement would have offered opportunities for young people that would have meant concerns falling away. She said “so-called Red Wall communities” backed the rights of migrant workers in the UK. Show Comments ▼ Labour rendered itself “irrelevant” because it did not take that chance, she added. Labour leadership hopeful Lisa Nandy says party should have been ‘bold’ on free movement Post-Brexit, a trade deal should focus on services rather than agriculture, she said. Nandy also criticised Jeremy Corbyn and the current Labour frontbench for not taking the opportunity to seize a soft Brexit when Theresa May “opened the door”. Shadow Brexit secretary Starmer is currently the frontrunner to take the reins. Alongside Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry, she must now gain sufficient backing of unions or CLPs to take her over the line to the final stage, where the contest opens up to party members. Speaking at the RSA today, Nandy said: “We should have been bold enough to defend free movement, and the opportunities and benefits it brings. But this would have required recognising it has flaws, and not dismissing concerns as simply racist anti-immigrant sentiment. The Wigan MP, who has been running an exhaustive series of events as part of her leadership campaign, said Labour had to “connect the local and the global”, acknowlegding that the system needed reforming, but that on balance it brought the UK benefits. Share Nandy was one of five MPs to pass the first threshold on Monday afternoon after she secured enough backing from MPs and MEPs. “We should acknowledge that over decades governments have used the steady influx of skilled labour to cover up a lack of investment in skills and training in the UK and address this.”last_img read more

Health officials have not identified a specific product or device common to all the cases. State and federal health officials are investigating.No cases have been reported in Alaska, but state officials want health care providers to report respiratory illness cases among people reporting recent inhaled drug use to state epidemiologists.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says symptoms included cough, shortness of breath and fatigue.Share this story:last_img read more

Big occasion for Jeremiah Grant’s as they prepare to open for business again

first_img Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role WhatsApp WhatsApp Big occasion for Jeremiah Grant’s as they prepare to open for business again Pinterest Facebook Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date Tomorrow is a big day for John Watchorne and the staff in the very popular Jeremiah Grant Bar and Eatery on Main Street in Portlaoise.Having been closed since March 15 due to the Coronavirus restrictions (three and a half months in total) they are permitted to open again tomorrow, Monday, June 29, in line with other similar establishments.Restuarants and coffee shops are included under this phase of the Government’s plan of re-opening the country – while bars can serve alcohol with a meal.Jeremiah Grant Bar and Eatery (named after the last man to be hanged in the old Maryborough Gaol in 1816 across the road)  had both a busy food and drink trade prior to its closure.And John and his staff have been working hard over the past couple of months to get ready for the new guidelines in place for the industry.They are taking bookings via an online system – with maximum groups of six. Groups are only permitted to stay for an hour and 45 minutes with 15 minutes allowed for cleaning and sanitizing before the next group comes in.Their lunch menu is available from 12noon to 4pm with their evening menu from 4pm to 9pm. Their Sunday lunch menu will be available all day.Regular customers will be glad to know that the menu hasn’t changed either!As the only bar and restaurant (outside of the hotels) opening in the town centre of Portlaoise, they have understandably been busy – with 600 people booked in across the first week.“We’ve taken substantial measures – removed a good few tables, have partitions between tables, have had staff training and we’ll all be wearing face shields,” said John.“We’ve been closed for three and a half months and it’s not easy. But people are really looking forward to getting out. The staff have been really good. There’s a great camaraderie there – they want to come back and are raring to go again.“It’s going to be busy but different. We’ll be showing people to their tables, cleaning a lot more rigorously.“But we have to get going again and have to adapt. We’re looking forward to the challenge.”Customers will have to stay with the group they’re booked in with – meaning no mixing or mingling – while drinking at the bar will not be allowed either.The upstairs area – previously used for parties and private bookings – will be used for tables at weekends, while the smoking area and beer garden (half of which is covered) will be used as an eating area also.It will be a different experience for customers than previously but no effort is being spared to make sure it’s a positive one.You can book a table in Jeremiah Grant on their online booking system here.  Twitter Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Home Sponsored Big occasion for Jeremiah Grant’s as they prepare to open for business… Sponsored Previous articleLocal TD says students are still waiting to receive accommodation refundsNext articleDeaths in Laois – Sunday, June 28, 2020 LaoisToday Reporter Pinterest By LaoisToday Reporter – 28th June 2020 Twitter Electric Picnic News TAGSJeremiah GrantJohn Watchorne Electric Picnic last_img read more

Fund salesperson fined $25,000 for conflicts of interest

Fiona Collie Mouth mechanic turned market manipulator Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The notice of hearing document states that between Nov. 23, 2006 and Jan. 5, 2010, Levine deposited 45 cheques drawn from an 86-year-old client’s account into her own personal banking account. The cheques totaled $52,300. During that time, Levine falsified the client’s signature on at least 11 cheques. Finally, in June 2008, Levine became a designated beneficiary on the client’s segregated fund account. In each of these cases, the hearing panel found that Levine was in a conflict or potential conflict of interest between her interests and those of the client. As well, Levine failed to observe high standards of ethics and conduct in the transaction of business. The conflicts of interest were reported to Quadrus and London Life after one of the client’s daughters was given a power of attorney and requested to see her father’s investment information. Levine claims the cheques were meant as gifts and a reimbursement for meals, groceries and various other items that she had purchased for the client, with whom she had both a business and personal relationship. In addition to the fine, Levine is also permanently prohibited from conducting securities related business in any capacity while employed or associated with any MFDA members. As well, Levine was ordered to pay an additional $7,500 in costs.

Urban Areas to be Included in Agriculture Census

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail For the first time, the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) will include some urban areas in the Agriculture census.According to Director of Censuses, Demography and Social Statistics, Valerie Nam, an important decision that the agency had to make was deciding on what areas of the island the census would cover, as previously only rural areas underwent this exercise.“Generally you don’t cover the urban centres, and that sometimes is a contentious issue as it relates to cost benefits, therefore we would cover mainly rural areas,” she revealed.Although the census will incorporate some urban areas the Director pointed out that town centre’s and parish capitals including Portmore and Montego Bay would be excluded. Among the urban areas to be included are Frankfield in Clarendon, and Bath, in St. Thomas.To identify the urban areas she said these districts must have a minimum population that has been identified by the organization, and have amenities and facilities that indicate modern living including a tax office, banks, and post offices.In explaining who the census would target, Mrs. Nam noted that the general criteria as described by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is that farms must have a holding of one square chain or a specific number of animals being reared.“What we would normally do is ask the questions and if farmers did not have the necessary number of animals or farm size we would not record the information, however what we are doing for 2007, which is different, is recording all information . now we will be able to identify all farmers whether large or small producers,” she explained.She noted that STATIN has identified two types of farmers: those who reared both animals and plant crops, as well as those who were referred to as ‘landless farmers’, who only rear crops. However she said that all farmers in the selected areas would still be captured in the census.The Ministry of Agriculture and Lands on February 20 launched its 2007 agricultural census, which will garner valuable data that will inform Government planning for the sector.The survey, which is conducted every 10 years, got underway in February under the theme, ‘Taking stock of Agriculture’.The process will involve some 477 personnel interviewing farmers across the island, with the aim of gathering data on the number of farms in each parish, the size of holdings, types of tenure, crops cultivated, and production output.Upon completion in July, the information will be used to foster agricultural policy planning, project implementation, and monitoring of the sector.
