first_img Entrepreneur Luke Johnson reveals he has a secret stalker Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Risk Capital Partners chairman and entrepreneur Luke Johnson looks to be paying the price of fame – the private equity star has got himself an obsessive fan. “I appear to have a stalker. She attends many of my speaking engagements and then comes up to me at the end…and says ‘I want you,’” he writes in Management Today magazine. She’s also been to his office and left “weird” letters. Johnson knows who she is but has not yet tried to obtain a restraining order. But why write about it now and how long has this been going on, we wondered? “I first noticed her in 2012 when I was doing a lot of live events promoting my book Start It Up,” he told The Capitalist. “I wrote about her because it seemed odd and I thought it might intrigue readers.” You can say that again, on both counts. Stalkers in the City aren’t as rare as we’d like to think. Natwest/RBS has its very own stalker who sent a vial purporting to be poison to then-CEO Stephen Hester and sent Sir Philip Hampton a number of abusive messages. FTI Consulting’s Dubai MD Marcus Pepperell also has a restraining order out on a woman who harassed him on LinkedIn. Has Johnson sought the advice of his peers? “One writer I know has suffered from some over-ardent admirers, but I haven’t really discussed it widely,” he told us. Let’s hope she gets bored of him soon.

Contactless payments now make up eight per cent of all Pay as You Go Journeys since being rolled out across the city’s transport network two months ago.Tube and rail had 5.5 million journeys made by contactless, while buses and trams had 6.5m since 16 September.164,000 journeys were made by swiping Oyster cards, contactless cards, or phones on a single day- the most successful day ever for contactless in the capital. Oxford Circus, Kings Cross and London Bridge are the most popular stations for using the technology.Craig Jones of the UK Cards Association said the figures showed how the technology had be “warmly received” by Londoners.“Analysis from our members shows that the launch of contactless payments on TfL services has inspired many consumers to use their cards for the first time. We hope that once new users experience the speed, ease and convenience of this payment method on the transport system, they will go on to use their contactless cards in a range of other settings, including shops, cafes and restaurants,” said Jones.MasterCard is offering free travel to Londoners who pay their fare using MasterCard and contactless payment today and again on Friday 28 November.Travellers could save up to £21.80 on their journeys across the capital on each of the days, automatically picking up a refund for their travel from MasterCard if they tap in using their card. Londoners with a MasterCard can also travel for free by tapping in with their smartphone using Cash on Tap, the payment app from mobile network EE.

They were all at millionaire fund-manager Jim Mellon’s Christmas party last night, of course.The shindig took place in Mellon’s pub in Notting Hill. The Capitalist had the pleasure of meeting the man the boozer was named after – a regular at the pub before Mellon bought it (it was a Slug and Lettuce) who’s simply known as The Commander. The pub, on Hereford Road, had been Mellon’s local before he dived in and scooped it up. The Brand New Heavies hit the stage shortly after 7pm, singing their hits, including Dream On Dreamer, and entertaining the jovial crowd, filled with the investor’s family and friends. “I wish this was my party,” said the guitarist, as the crowd chanted back the lyrics. Wearing a Santa hat, Mellon boogied at the front with Reed and his posse. Farage however ducked in and out again before The Capitalist had a chance to say “how’s Steph and Dom?” But the best was saved for last. Three songs written by Mellon and his guitar teacher and performed by his friends, with Mellon taking the lead on the last song – getting the crowd to join in.

QE is the last major weapon in Draghi’s arsenal – and here’s everything you need to know:What is quantitative easing? Typically, central banks generate growth and lift inflation in the economy by cutting interest rates. Low interest rates encourage spending by making it cheaper to borrow money and diminishing returns on savings.But the ECB’s main interest rate – which is languishing at -0.05 per cent – is already at a record low. This means the ECB must enact QE if it’s to re-ignite the euro area’s ailing economy.It will involve using newly printed money to buy the government bonds of the 18 Eurozone member states. Bond prices and their interest rates move in opposition directions, so while QE pushes up bond prices, it also brings down interest rates and consequently governments’ borrowing costs. It’s hoped this will have a knock-on effect on the interest rates of debt for households and businesses which are priced according to the government’s borrowing costs. What do they want to achieve (or why now)?Tumbling oil prices have pushed the Eurozone’s headline inflation rate into negative for the first time in five years.There are fears that – unless the ECB acts quickly – the region could be plunged into a deflationary spiral. This is when people delay spending on the belief there will be better deals around tomorrow, which dents demand for company’s products and services, prompting them to slash prices. After a while depressed demand becomes even more entrenched and eventually companies will start to cut investments, curtail hiring and even reduce wages.This would be bad news for the ECB, because prolonged deflation is a little like quicksand, and once you’re in it becomes very hard to get out.Why is it so controversial?Germany has been outspoken in its opposition to QE for the Eurozone.Firstly, it has argued there’s little chance a large-scale bond-buying scheme will actually work. It also argues that it will impose an unfair burden on the German taxpayer – as well as the tax payers of some other Eurozone countries. Under usual risk-sharing arrangements the 19 Eurozone countries share losses relative to the size of their economies – and Germany’s is the biggest.But this means that – if, say, Greece defaults – Germany could end up shouldering a sizeable amount of its debt. Finally, it’s worried a weaker Euro will lead peripheral Eurozone countries – such as Greece, Portugal and Italy – slowing down painful but much-needed structural reforms to their economies.So what will happen tomorrow?The general belief is that the ECB will give the Eurozone a watered down dose of QE, largely due to pressure form the Germans (for reasons mentioned above). A typical QE policy would involve the ECB buying bonds from the 18 Eurozone governments directly.However, Draghi is expected to say that those countries’ central banks should shoulder responsibility for any bonds bought, meaning financial risks aren’t distributed evenly between Eurozone members. The total amount is still expected to be pretty sizeable, with analysts and economists putting it anywhere between €500m and €1 trillion (although the former is much more likely).Bloomberg has reported that an ECB executive board proposal circulated among its governing council foresees asset purchases of €50bn a month until the end of 2016.How will markets react?Anything equal to or above what investors are expecting (which is essentially a full-blown QE programme worth at least €500m) will make the markets pretty happy. Investors will also want details of how it’s going to work (as they’ll need to be convinced it will be easy to executive).In such a scenario, bond and stocks prices would surge, as elated investors pile into these assets. But if the ECB disappoints tomorrow, there’s a chance Eurozone stocks could fall, as investors pull money out. This could happen through two scenarios – either the ECB simply reveals guidance rather than enacting QE – or it panders to Germany and presents investors with a pretty disappointing version of QE.

first_img whatsapp Sunday 1 March 2015 11:20 am A war of words between the government and the SNP has been sparked by plans to plaster the Union flag on big taxpayer projects.The plans that will be announced by Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander tomorrow mirror the EU’s practice of featuring the EU flag on infrastructure projects dependent on European grants. The logo will display the Union Jack and brandish the words “funded by the UK government. Explaining the decision for the new display, Alexander said on Sunday:I’ve prioritised infrastructure in this government because only long-term investments will support UK businesses and get the public finances and economy on a firm footing.It’s only right that we recognise the contribution of the UK taxpayer in supporting this economic growth, which is why I’m delighted to launch these Union Jack plaques.The proposals may seem tame enough, but the SNP suspects some underhanded political tactics are at play. SNP treasury spokesman Stewart Hosie dismissed the logo, labelling it a  silly gimmick by Danny Alexander and his Tory bosses”.He added that the logo won’t “cover over the fact that his government at Westminster has slashed infrastructure spending – destroying jobs and delaying economic recovery – including cutting Scotland’s capital budget by a quarter”.

first_img The first sentences have been handed out as a result of the investigation into the horse meat scandal two years ago. Abattoir boss Peter Boddy was fined £8,000 at Southwark Crown Court after he admitted failing to comply with food traceability regulations.  Boddy, who runs a slaughterhouse in West Yorkshire, sold 55 carcasses without keeping records of where they were going, 37 of which he said went to Italian restaurants. A further 17 animals entered his business without documents showing where they had come from.   Manager David Moss was given a four-months suspended prison sentence for falsifying an invoice concerning the number of horses involved in a transaction.  They were each asked to pay costs of more than £10,000. The Food Standard Agency’s chief operating officer Jason Feeney said: “Criminal activity like this across Europe contributed to the horse meat incident. Consumers need to know that their food is what it says it is on the label.” Investigations are ongoing into the scandal, which erupted two years ago. The FSA and other government departments are also implementing recommendations from the Elliot Review, into the integrity of UK food chains.   This includes the establishment of the Food Crime Unit, which focuses on food fraud by analysing intelligence, initiating investigations and liaising with other criminal and regulatory enforcement agencies. Andy Morling was announced today as the head of the unit. He starts in his role this week.  Share Show Comments ▼ Catherine Neilan Monday 23 March 2015 1:41 pmcenter_img Tags: NULL whatsapp First horse meat scandal sentences handed out whatsapplast_img read more

first_img whatsapp Labour kicked off its General Election campaign today in London’s Olympic Park with Ed Miliband promising to cap the amount of profit private companies can make from the NHS at five per cent.The Labour leader promised that if his party won this May’s General Election it would put a stop to what he branded the”privatisation” of the health service. Any profits made above the five per cent cap will be returned for to the NHS. The default cap will apply to all outsourced contracts with a value of £500,000 or more. Miliband told the audience:For the first time, we will cap the profits that private health companies can make from our National Health Service. The standard rule will be a five per cent cap, because the money we pay for our healthcare should be invested for patient care, not for excess profits for private firms.NHS commissioners would have the ability to raise or lower the cap to deal with the specific circumstances raised by individual contracts. Commissioners will also be able to exit contracts early in the case of poor service.”Privatisation of the NHS is no longer simply out of step with our principles, it is out of step with the needs of the time,” said Miliband.The Labour leader added that he wanted to end private companies “cherry picking” easy cases. Miliband claimed the cap, combined with another £2.5bn, amounted to a double lock protecting the NHS.While the move may cheer traditional Labour voters it could unnerve New-Labour stalwarts who argued for greater private involvement in the NHS. The policy could also be viewed as more ideological than practical and reinforce the impression Miliband has dragged the party to the left.”This is a nonsensical proposal to solve a non-existent problem,” said Adam Memon, head of economic research at the Centre for Policy Studies. “The proportion of the NHS budget spent commissioning healthcare from private providers has increased by just one percentage point since 2010.”This is hardly evidence of wholesale NHS privatisation. More importantly, he should realise that firms delivering services and investing and innovating within the NHS can improve patient care,” he added.
