Co-operative Bank boss Liam Coleman to step down after five years at the lender

Coleman joined the company in June 2013 as treasurer, and has been a central figure at the bank since it began its turnaround in 2013.He was promoted to deputy chief executive in June 2016 before rising to the top job at the start of 2017.Coleman’s departure comes months after Dench was appointed chairman, tasked with steering the bank through difficult waters after it was rescued by its US hedge fund investors last June. whatsapp Thursday 7 June 2018 10:18 am The boss of Co-operative Bank Liam Coleman is to step down after five years at the bank.A statement from the board today said that Coleman made the decision after successfully completing the lender’s recapitalisation process last year. Co-operative Bank boss Liam Coleman to step down after five years at the lender Under Liam’s tenure the bank is stronger and more resilient on many levels having also completed the outsourcing of our major IT systems to IBM, continued to significantly de-risk the balance sheet, and substantially reduce our cost base.I would like to thank Liam on behalf of the board for his significant contribution. Josh Mines whatsapp The board said it was “mindful” of the need to manage a timely and orderly succession, telling investors that a further announcement will be made on Coleman’s successor “in due course.”Coleman, who has spent less than two years in the job, will remain with the lender while the hunt for his replacement is ongoing.The outgoing chief executive said he felt a “great sense of achievement” in how the bank had tackled the issues which faced the organisation back in 2013.”This is a great bank with a strong customer base and distinct brand and the progress made means there is much to build upon,” he explained. “However, having successfully completed the recapitalisation process last year, I feel it is now both the right time for me and for the business to look to new leadership for the next stage of the journey.”Chairman of the Co-operative Bank Bob Dench added: by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeWeniixTop 5 best crossover sedans of 2021 – WENIIXWeniixAnyMuscle.comEnd-of-life symptoms of metastatic breast cancerAnyMuscle.comHistory 10[Gallery] Canal Drained For First Time In 200 Years.

Erdogan: Audio recording of Khashoggi murder is ‘appalling’

first_img whatsapp Erdogan: Audio recording of Khashoggi murder is ‘appalling’ Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today recordings of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder are “appalling” and shocked the Saudi intelligence officer who listened to them.Erdogan’s comments came after he spent the weekend in Paris for Remembrance Day commemorations “It must be revealed who gave them the order to murder.”Turkey has drip-fed information about the killing to other governments and the media as it attempts to maintain pressure on the Saudi authorities.Erdogan has not revealed any information about the content of the tapes, saying only that they relate to Khashoggi’s killing. Share whatsapp Tuesday 13 November 2018 5:25 pmcenter_img Tags: Trading Archive He discussed the murder of Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate with the US, French and German leaders over dinner, said Reuters, citing local media.The Turkish president has previously said the tapes were shared with Saudi Arabia, the US, France, Germany and Britain, and added yesterday that Canada had also been informed.“The recordings are really appalling. Indeed when the Saudi intelligence officer listened to the recordings he was so shocked he said: ‘This one must have taken heroin, only someone who takes heroin would do this’,” said Erdogan.The president reiterated his belief that the killing was ordered by the “highest levels” of Saudi government, but stopped short of suggesting Prince Mohammed bin Salman was involved.“The crown prince says ‘I will clarify the matter, I will do what is necessary’. We are waiting patiently,” he said.

UK’s customs system would not work properly for two years in no-deal Brexit, MPs told

first_img MPs heard the UK would struggle to collect tariffs properly, while the potential for traffic chaos at ports was a “known unknown”.HMRC official Jim Harra told the committee: “We would start off with a functioning but clearly sub-optimal customs border.”He added: “I think we are looking at a minimum of two years from the no deal to get to a point where you can say we have a steady-state system where we are comfortable that we can manage all the fiscal risks in a way we would like and trade can flow in the way we would like.”Jon Thompson, chief executive of HMRC, flagged up the lack of preparation for ‘no deal’ planning, saying: “The date for putting in an optimal customs system for the UK in the event of no deal was passed months ago.”Thompson also warned Theresa May’s controversial backstop plan might not be able to be implemented until nine months after the transition period has expired. Owen Bennett whatsapp A ‘no deal’ Brexit would see the UK without a fully functioning customs system for two years, MPs were told on Wednesday.Senior officials from HM Revenue & Customs told the Treasury committee the moment to start planning for the talks collapsing  passed months ago” in a sobering warning. He claimed it could take up to 30 months for the UK’s customs system to be set up for such an arrangment, which would come into force in the absence of Brexit trade deal being ready to be implemented.With the UK only signed up to a 21-month post-Brexit transition period, there is a high chance of the borders not being ready to cope with a customs arrangement which could see Northern Ireland operating a different regulatory regime to mainland Britain.Thompson was asked what HMRC needed to do to prepare for the backstop being triggered, and said: “We would require further clarity on what is required in order for us to be able to work out what IT systems we would need to build.”Secondly, as has been pointed out already part of that would be what IT systems would be have access to in the EU. We require clarity on both those points: what needs to be operationalised and what IT systems do we have access to.”He added: “In broad terms, if we were to make a number of assumptions we think it could be up to 30 months to do that work.”The UK and EU have the option of extending the transition period, but would need to make that decision by June 2020, and can only extend it once.

Brits seeking post-Brexit Irish passports spikes 22 per cent in 2018

first_img whatsapp The number of Brits applying for an Irish passport soared 22 per cent in the last year, at more than double the amount of annual applications than before the 2016 Brexit referendum.Almost 100,000 eligible applicants from the UK sought a way to retain their EU membership in 2018, according to figures released today by Ireland’s foreign office. Tags: Brexit Share whatsapp This was up from 81,000 last year, and 46,000 in 2015 before the referendum caused a spike in applications.Approximately 6m British people are eligible for an Irish passport, if they have been born in either Ireland or Northern Ireland, or have a parent or grandparent that is Irish. They can also hold dual citizenship with the UK.In Northern Ireland, where citizens can hold both British and Irish passports, registrations for an Irish passport rose two per cent by the end of December.Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney said 2018 had been a record-breaking year for applications from Great Britain. During the busiest period in 2018, 6,500 passport applications were made in a single day.A total of 822,581 travel documents were issued by the Irish government this year. Prior to the referendum, growth in application rates for Irish passports from Britain had remained largely static for at least four years.Outside of the UK, New York was the next Irish consulate to have received the highest amount of passport applications. This was then followed by Canberra, Pretoria, San Francisco and Ottawa.center_img More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org Brits seeking post-Brexit Irish passports spikes 22 per cent in 2018 Emily Nicolle Monday 31 December 2018 10:27 amlast_img read more

Nicky Morgan ducks investigation into Treasury role in RBS GRG unit

first_imgSunday 10 March 2019 6:53 pm Alexandra Rogers Share The allegations that the Treasury exerted influence over the bank’s turnaround unit through the Asset Protecting Agency (APA) came to light during a court case between RBS and Manchester-based businessman Oliver Morley. Morley claims his business was placed under “economic duress” when the bank’s property arm, the West Register, acquired some of his assets in 2010. RBS has said the claim is without merit.Read more: Treasury agrees to publish key agreement with RBS after GRG claimsIn her response, Morgan said: “Her Majesty’s courts and tribunals service have advised that trial dates have been set for the case referred to in your letter. The case is therefore currently sub judice, and any committee action at this time is consequently restricted.”I am grateful for your letter, please be assured that the committee continues to take a close interest in this matter.”Kevin Hollinrake, chair of the parliamentary group for fair business banking, told City AM: “We must never forget that at the heart of this issue is the scandalous treatment of thousands of UK businesses, which destroyed many lives and livelihoods. Many of these people have not been adequately compensated, nor have those responsible been held to account. The allegations that the Asset Protection Agency, an agency of HM Treasury, influenced decisions on individual cases are of extreme concern and must be thoroughly, transparently and independently investigated.

The FCA’s ‘fuller findings’ report is now overdue – we will respond further once this is in the public domain and will keenly follow the Oliver Morley case. We will not rest until these allegations are fully and satisfactorily answered and those ultimately responsible for the disgraceful mistreatment are brought to book.” Former Cabinet minister Nicky Morgan has ducked an investigation into the relationship between the Treasury and RBS’s disgraced global restructuring unit GRG.Morgan, who chairs the Treasury Select Committee, responded to a letter from Sir Vince Cable in which the former business secretary called for a probe into allegations the Treasury may have “actively encouraged” the activities of the GRG, the unit which has been accused of ruining the livelihoods of thousands of business owners. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

Brexiteers have imperilled their own project

first_img Brexiteers have imperilled their own project The alternative scenarios include leaving with no deal, revoking Article 50 (cancelling Brexit) or settling for such a ‘soft’ Brexit that – in Goldsmith’s words – “we simply become a non-voting rule taking appendage” to the EU. Another high-profile Leaver, Jacob Rees-Mogg, said yesterday that he would only vote for the deal when and if it became clear that not doing so would imperil Brexit. After last night’s defeat it is hard to argue that this moment hasn’t arrived.The Commons has never provided a majority in favour of leaving, and under the cover of May’s double defeat they can now marshal the forces at their disposal to rule out no-deal, instruct the PM to seek a delay and push the government into the arms of EU negotiators who now hold all the cards.As May told MPs last night, MPs – having taken control – will have to decide what to do. The PM set out the options available to the House: “Does it wish to revoke Article 50? Does it want to hold a second referendum? Or does it want to leave with a deal, but not this deal?”Somewhere amid these unfolding possibilities remains the option of the Prime Minister’s deal. The PM is right that MPs, having made it clear what they’re against, now have to decide what they favour – but the same is true of the pro-Brexit Tories in the European Research Group.In the days ahead they must confront the reality of a situation that leaves them with May’s version of Brexit or no Brexit at all. Tags: Brexit People Zac Goldsmith whatsapp The fact that 40 Tory MPs who previously voted against the deal swung behind the PM is significant – and will be seized upon by Downing Street strategists as evidence that there is life in her deal yet.Some big beasts are among the pro-Brexit Tories who voted last night in favour of the deal, including Graham Brady and David Davis, the former Brexit secretary. Zac Goldsmith, a longstanding Eurosceptic who also voted for the deal, offered an explanation to the ConservativeHome website last night, saying “I cannot camouflage the anger I feel about the feebleness of the government’s negotiations….but I chose to vote for it [the deal] because I believe the alternative is far worse.” whatsapp Tuesday 12 March 2019 10:25 pm Christian May Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likebonvoyaged.comThese Celebs Are Complete Jerks In Real Life.bonvoyaged.comUndoBleacherBreaker4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
