Campaign to oust Theresa May being coordinated from Iain Duncan Smith’s office

first_img Owen Bennett whatsapp whatsapp Campaign to oust Theresa May being coordinated from Iain Duncan Smith’s office The campaign to oust Theresa May is being coordinated from the office of former leader Iain Duncan Smith, it can be revealed by City A.M.A group of Brexiters determined to end May’s leadership gathered in the plush office in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon to discuss tactics ahead of the no confidence vote set to begin just hours later. Former Brexit minister Steve Baker – the shop steward of the European Research Group – was among those in the meeting, along with Duncan Smith’s old Maastricht rebel ally Sir Bernard Jenkin.Duncan Smith has repeatedly claimed he would not submit a letter of no confidence to trigger a vote as he was subject to such an action when he was leader in 2003 – although he has said it is “time for a change”.By holding the meetings in his office, Duncan Smith is now revealed as a key player in the plot to oust May from Downing Street.Other MPs in the meeting were Simon Clarke, Anne-Marie Trevelyan and Ross Thomson.Asked about the meeting, Sir Bernard said: “I can’t talk right now.” Wednesday 12 December 2018 4:01 pmcenter_img May will address her Conservative colleagues at a meeting in Parliament at 5pm on Wednesday, with voting on whether she should stay as leader beginning at 6pm.A Downing Street source revealed May is set to tell MPs the confidence vote is not about who will lead the party into the next election, but securing a deal that delivers on the Brexit vote in 2016.May needs to win a simple majority – 159 – to stay on as leader, and then cannot be challenged for year.If she loses, the starting gun will be fired on a leadership election which May will be unable to stand in.The results will be announced between 8-9pm on Wednesday evening.

Hardest hit businesses call for extension of federal wage, rent subsidies

first_img Jordan PressJoan BrydenCanadian Press Man and woman sitting in cafeteria discussing finance for the month. Stressed couple looking at bills sitting in restaurant wearing uniform apron. Cafe staff sitting together looking at expenses and bills. (Man and woman sitting in cafeteria discussi iStock The idea is to see how the economy is faring as the summer arrives, and tweak programs targeting businesses and workers as needed.Business groups on Wednesday argued that sectors relying on in-person customers aren’t going to recover by the summer and called on the Liberals to extend the wage and rent subsidies until the end of the year.The Coalition of Hardest Hit Businesses, which represents hotel, tourism, arts, culture and hospitality industries, said about 60% of the almost 6,000 companies it represents believe they’ll go under without sustained access to federal support programs.Susie Grynol, president of the Hotel Association of Canada, said the demise of those companies would hurt rural and remote communities, downtown cores and local economies that rely on tourism.“The cost of doing nothing would be far greater than the cost of supporting these businesses and keeping them intact until they can get to the other side,” she said during a virtual press conference.Hospitality, travel and tourism saw some of the largest drops in economic activity last year as public health restrictions forced their closure, or severely curtailed in-person customers.The sectors continue to lag behind in recovering from last year’s downturn, slowed by continuing public health measures, including ongoing bans on mass gatherings.Beth Potter, president of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, said receipts earned across the suite of sectors represented by the coalition are likely to be down 35% from 2019 figures, meaning a $105-billion industry two years ago would be down to $68 billion this year.For those companies, the wage and rent subsidies have been a lifeline, Grynol said.The most recent federal figures show the wage subsidy has handed out over $70.2 billion in aid since its launch last year. The latest number of employees whose wages are being subsidized stood at over 1.3 million, which is the lowest among the program’s 12 pay periods.The government has also provided $1.82 billion in rent relief to 143,110 businesses, including 59,420 companies that received $300 million in lockdown top-ups.The Canadian Chamber of Commerce said Wednesday that the budget should extend the aid programs, but redesign them to target businesses that need the most help.The chamber suggested the government adjust eligibility criteria to account for seasonal businesses, and develop targeted policies to assist the longer recovery time for sectors relying on face-to-face interactions.Many businesses have come to rely on federal aid for their financial survival, said Craig Alexander, chief economist at Deloitte Canada.He also expected investment in the accommodation sector to pull back this year.“When the government programs end or are wound down, I think we’re going to see a rise of insolvencies and bankruptcies. I actually think that there’s been a lot of damage done that we can’t see,” Alexander said.“One of the things we need to do to promote new investment is to make it easier to launch a business, to encourage entrepreneurs to launch businesses to replace the businesses that have been lost by the downturn.”He said governments can ease regulations for anyone wanting to open a business, which doesn’t hit the bottom line for politicians worried about ballooning deficits.

Franz Josef infrastructure gets green light

first_imgFranz Josef infrastructure gets green light Hon Stuart Nash A new infrastructure project to increase the resilience of the Franz Josef community and the wider Westland economy has been given the green light.Economic and Regional Development Minister Stuart Nash says phase one of a flood protection scheme for the Waiho River has gained final approval, after West Coast councils put the project to government for COVID recovery support.“The Franz Josef flood protection project puts fresh investment, confidence and jobs into the local economic recovery,” Mr Nash says.“The first phase of the project will upgrade the northern stopbanks to protect Franz Josef township from the Waiho River, followed by work on the southern stopbanks. It will take about 18 months and councils estimate it will provide up to 30 fulltime jobs.“The jobs and commercial activity generated by the project will give the local economy an immediate shot in the arm as it recovers from the loss of international tourists following the global COVID19 pandemic.“The first phase of the flood protection work involves investment of up to $12.3 million by the government and local councils. The co-funding arrangement involves $9.23 million from government, through the Provincial Development Unit.“Jobs, businesses, and whole communities depend on resilient infrastructure links on the West Coast. New research into the Alpine Fault also highlights the threats to the town and region from natural hazards.“The challenges facing Franz Josef and infrastructure on the coast are massive in scale. The earthquake fault line runs down the town’s main street. The Waiho River is fed by the meltwaters of the Franz Josef Glacier and carries enormous boulders and rocks down from the mountains when it floods.“In 2019 the bridge was swept away by a one in a hundred year flood which also caused widespread destruction around Franz Josef, closed SH6 and hurt the town’s economy. Waka Kotahi-NZTA rebuilt the bridge in just two and a half weeks, but the damage is estimated to have led to an economic loss of up to $50 million for the West Coast.“The unrelenting forces of nature through earthquakes, floods, and extreme weather events associated with climate change mean this community needs more help than most to plan for its future.“State Highway 6 is the lifeline that links south Westland to larger towns, ports and rail hubs in the north. It is the path taken by tourists to world-famous destinations in the south such as the Haast wilderness area, Queenstown, Wanaka, Central Otago and Fiordland.“Phase one of the flood project is only the start. It is the first step in a staged approach to protecting Franz Josef. Central government agencies, local government, iwi, businesses and the town’s residents will have to be involved in even longer term planning.“We need a bigger plan to protect the town and West Coast’s vital infrastructure for decades to come. Government agencies and councils will work alongside the community to deal with these tough issues,” Mr Nash said. /Public Release.

Historian wins top honor from American Council of Learned Societies

Read more In 1952, Lin Jaldati, a Dutch Jewish cabaret performer and Auschwitz survivor from Amsterdam, moved to East Berlin with Eberhard Rebling, a pianist, who had left Germany under Hitler for Holland where he survived the war.  By singing anti-fascist Yiddish music, Jaldati and Rebling animated the memory of World War II and the Holocaust in their concerts, Shneer notes, adding: “They commemorated murdered Jews in the very country that orchestrated their murder; their concert halls served as alternatives to Jewish religious spaces; and their message in these performances envisioned a peaceful future through the universalist lens of communism.” Shneer recently answered five questions about his scholarly work. The questions and his answers follow: Question: The story of Lin Jaldati’s life is stunning. Once you discovered it, you could have written a book about her, but you chose to combine your historical scholarship with multimedia performances. How does this approach help you better chronicle her life and its impact? Answer: Lin Jaldati, the Dutch Jewish dancer and singer, survived the Holocaust and moved with her husband, Eberhard Rebling, to East Germany. There, she became the Yiddish diva of the communist world.   Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail By Clint Talbott • Published: April 23, 2020 David Shneer’s winning project highlights Holocaust survivors who ‘commemorated murdered Jews in the very country that orchestrated their murder’ David Shneer, a University of Colorado Boulder historian, has won a prestigious fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), the group announced this month. Shneer is among 81 winners chosen through a peer-review process from a field of 1,200 applicants.  The ACLS Fellowship program honors scholarship in the humanities and humanistic social sciences that have the potential to make significant contributions to knowledge in their fields. The awards range from $40,000 to $75,000 and support six to 12 months of full-time research and writing. “As we continue to navigate the unpredictable world created by the COVID-19 pandemic, ACLS remains committed to supporting humanistic scholarship that contributes important perspectives to the conversations shaping our world and helps us better understand the human experiences of the past and those that will influence the years to come,” council President Joy Connolly said in a prepared statement. Shneer’s project, called Art is My Weapon: Anti-Fascist Music, Yiddish Performance, and Holocaust Memory (1933-1989), tells the story of one woman and her husband’s attempt to redeem post World War II Germany from its Nazi past with their Yiddish performance and socialist politics.   Tags:History CU scholars named American Council of Learned Societies fellows Three University of Colorado Boulder professors have won prestigious fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies. The three are among 69 fellows chosen from 1,100 applicants. Read more After writing several scholarly articles, I thought about how I wanted to transform her story of hope into something more visceral, so I decided to do a performance. I worked with Jewlia Eisenberg, who is a singer, and transformed her life into a 70-minute story called Art is My Weapon.  Two parts learning, one part entertainment, Art is My Weapon shocked people with what it stood for—resistance in times of hopelessness, a visible future in times of current hardship.   She died in 1988, one year before the Berlin Wall fell down, but I would have hoped that she would have kept on singing. Q: You’ve described Jaldati as “one of if not the key player in shaping Holocaust memory in East Germany.” Can you tell us more about why this is so? A: As a Jewish Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen survivor, Jaldati was key in animating Holocaust memory in East Germany. As part of East German memorial celebrations, she sang in Yiddish at Holocaust memorial celebrations, concentration camp openings, and at Auschwitz memorial celebrations.   She sang Yiddish songs that rang true of Holocaust memorialization such as “It is Burning (S’brent),” a 1938 Mordechai Gebirtig song that became a Holocaust ghetto song after the war. She also sang “Never Say (Zog nit keynmol),” a 1943 Hirsh Glik song that became the European Jewish national anthem after the war but before Israel’s founding in 1948.  Q: Can you tell us about the significance of Jaldati’s embrace of Yiddish song and Yiddish dance to her opposition of fascism? A: Yiddish was always the anti-authoritarian indigenous folk language of Eastern European Jews, but not just for Jews. African American actor and singer Paul Robeson sang Yiddish songs as early as 1936 for the Spanish Civil War and continued singing in Yiddish throughout his life.   Yiddish song and dance tell us a lot about her anti-fascism in the 1930s, but more often in the 1950s and 1960s in East Germany, as she sings these new songs of East German anti-fascism through the lens of Holocaust memory. Q: In the abstract published with your ACLS fellowship announcement, you note that Jaldati and Rebling “commemorated murdered Jews in the very country that orchestrated their murder; their concert halls served as alternatives to Jewish religious spaces; and their message in these performances envisioned a peaceful future through the universalist lens of communism.” To what extent did their audiences react well, and why do you think Jaldati and Rebling had the success they had? A: The audiences, whether in East Germany or in Vancouver, Canada, loved Lin (they always called her Lin). In East German concert halls, these concerts served as secular Jewish spaces when none existed. And the audiences loved their vision of a peaceful world through socialism, albeit with the East German state regulating their every movement. Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about the ACLS fellowship in particular? A: I’m honored to be an awardee of the ACLS fellowship and hope that I can turn this year into a beautiful book about Lin Jaldati and Eberhard Rebling as the animators of Holocaust memory and visionaries of a peaceful future. Formed in 1919, ACLS is a nonprofit federation of 75 scholarly organizations. It describes itself as the preeminent representative of American scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences, and it holds a core belief that knowledge is a public good.  Related Articles Lin Jaldati David Shneer. At the top of the page: Jewlia Eisenberg and David Shneer onstage together. “Millers Tears” by Yiddishkayt Los Angeles on Vimeolast_img read more

Govt. Seeks to Fast-Track Private Sector Investment in Education

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail KINGSTON — The Ministry of Education is seeking to fast-track its efforts to partner with the private sector in the build-out of needed schools, even as budgetary constraints limit the government’s ability to satisfy demand for additional school places. This was stated by Minister of Education, Hon Andrew Holness, as he addressed Scotia Bank’s scholarship awards luncheon, held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston on August 31. Citing the reduction in budgetary allocation in the first Supplementary Estimates for 2011/12, the Minister stressed that a scarcity of resources should not be a limit to development. He noted the Government’s inability to finance the building of the schools to satisfy the demand, and pointed out that the administration is seeking private-sector support in the building of schools. Despite the cut in the Ministry’s capital budget for the rest of the financial year, the Government plans to build 15 new schools in the medium term at a cost of between US$100 million and US$150 million, and 100 schools at a cost of US$1 billion over the longer term. The expenditure, the Minister said, would flow from build-out arrangements with the private sector. The Minister congratulated the 19 scholarship recipients who excelled in the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and urged parents and guardians to play an active role in the education of the children. “The general argument is that parents lack the ability to teach, and although that may be so, we all have the ability to supervise and motivate,” Mr. Holness said.
