Some Liberal Democrats have indicated they will vote against plans to cap housing benefit at £400-a-week, because some claimants will inevitably be forced to leave their homes. Bob Russell, the Liberal Democrat MP for Colchester, raised the issue after a tetchy session of Prime Minister’s Questions that saw Labour leader Ed Miliband and David Cameron trade blows over the issue. “The Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition have had their fun and games over housing benefit. But this is not a laughing matter for the thousands of children who could become homeless,” Russell said, which reflects a strong view in his party. Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Survey: Finns do not trust MPs on gambling

first_img Survey: Finns do not trust MPs on gambling Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Regions: Europe Nordics Finland 6th September 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img The majority of Finns do not trust MPs on gambling policy, according to a poll conducted by Bilendi Oy and commissioned by affiliate Kasino Curt. The survey also found that more Finns oppose Veikkaus’s gambling monopoly than support it The majority of Finns do not trust MPs on gambling policy, according to a poll conducted by Bilendi Oy and commissioned by affiliate Kasino Curt.The survey also found that more Finns oppose Veikkaus’s gambling monopoly than support it and that opinions are more negative towards Veikkaus than they were when a previous survey was conducted in March.A sample of 1,000 participants were asked if they agree with the statement, “Finnish MPs want gambling policies that are, first and foremost, beneficial for them.” Some 32% said they fully disagreed and 26% said they partly disagreed, while only 3% said they fully disagreed and only 7% said they partially disagreed.Mistrust of MPs was particularly strong among older citizens, with 41% of 55-to-64-year-olds fully disagreeing and 27% partly disagreeing.When given the statement, “Veikkaus does enough work to eliminate the harmful effects of gambling,” only 8% strongly agreed and 19% partially agreed, while 19% strongly disagreed and 26% partially disagreed. Opinion has become much more negative than in March, when 33% strongly agreed and 34% strongly disagreed.The survey also found that 41% of the population want to break Veikkaus’s gambling monopoly in the country, while only 28% want to keep it together. Some 17% strongly supported ending the monopoly and 11% were strongly opposed to ending it. In March, support for breaking the monopoly was only marginal, with 31% wholly or partly agreeing to end Veikkaus’s monopoly and 27% wanting to keep it in place.According to the survey, 45% of respondents believe that the gaming monopoly in the country will end within the next ten years, while only 22% believe it will remain, compared to 31% and 24% respectively in March.Some 40% of Finns are opposed, including 16% who are fully opposed, to Veikkaus marketing its games, while 29% approve of the company advertising. In March, 22% said they approved of the company’s advertising while 33% disapproved. Veikkaus has cut back marketing efforts significantly since March, including slashing its marketing budget by more than 70% for Q2 of 2019 and putting an end to marketing its land-based slots.Finns were more divided on whether Finland’s justification to the EU for its gambling monopoly ⁠— that it is necessary to reduce gambling harm ⁠— is accurate, while 33% of respondents said they agreed with the justification wholly or partly, while 33% said they did not.Veikkaus announced its financial results for the second quarter and first half of 2019 yesterday (September 5), with turnover, revenue and profit all falling as chief executive Olli Sarekoski acknowledged the future of its gambling monopoly was in question.The company also acknowledged a series of new social responsibility controls. As well as putting an end to advertising its land-based slots, it announced the reduction in the number of slot machines it operates. The company will also introduce compulsory identity controls and Sarekoski said it may even withdraw certain games from the market in the near future.

He had already received pledges and cash from several people in an area of Stanmore, but one person became suspicious and rang Aspire to find out if it was genuine.Ms Page was particularly concerned with the timing of the scam. She said: “we are concerned that it will impact on our major fundraising event – the ASPIRE Channel Swim which asks individuals and teams to swim the 22 mile distance of the English Channel in any pool over a 12 week period (13th September – 5th December).” She added that “we would encourage anyone with any doubts to phone the Aspire fundraising team to ensure that their valuable funds will only be used to help people with spinal cord injuries.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 27 June 2004 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ruling party politician bursts into radio station, threatens to kill staff

first_imgNews January 8, 2021 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News to go further News RSF asks Senegal to amend its new press law March 5, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today called on the police and judicial authorities to take action against Moustapha Cissé Lô, a politician who burst into the studios of radio Disso FM on 18 April, accompanied by thugs, and threatened to kill the station’s staff because his inclusion on the ruling party’s parliamentary candidate list had just been criticised on the air by a listener.“This kind of criminal behaviour recurs in Senegal because police and judges are loath to act when those responsible are linked to the ruling party,” the press freedom organisation said. “But now journalists’ patience is exhausted. So it is important that sanctions are imposed to prevent any further repetition of such incidents.”A privately-owned station based in Mbacké, in the western region of Dourbel, Disso FM has a programme called “Xew-xew” in which listeners call in. On 18 April a listener expressed irritation at the inclusion of Lô in the candidate list of the ruling Democratic Senegalese Party (PDS).A short while later, Lô and his escort forced their way into the radio station, threatened all the staff and even talked of killing the first person who mentioned his name. Station manager Ibrahima Benjamin Diagne called the police, who eventually persuade Lô to leave.Diagne filed a complaint with the police same day and said he would also file one with the state prosecutor. Since then he has received many phone calls from Lô and his associates. In one of these calls, Lô said he was in “a fight to the death” with the station’s personnel.A member of the PDS and of the council of the republic for economic and social affairs, Lô is considered close to President Abdoulaye Wade. The press has dubbed him “El pistolero” because he always carries a firearm.

Limerick housing applicants may be off the list

first_imgNo vaccines in Limerick yet Advertisement Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSapplicantsfeaturedhousing listLimeririck Facebook WhatsApp NewsLimerick housing applicants may be off the listBy Bernie English – October 27, 2016 1832 HUNDREDS of people who think they are on Limerick’s local authority waiting list may not be on it at all.Members of Limerick City and County Council’s housing committee were told this week that new regulations require the council to write to people on the housing list each year to check that they are still in need of housing.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Senior executive housing officer, Patricia Liddy, told last Monday’s committee meeting that despite writing three times to people who didn’t reply the first time, 20 per cent of all letters were returned unopened to the council.“Applications have closed but we will be flexible if people contact us. We will do our best but there has to be a cut-off point,” she said.Cllr Joe Leddin (Lab) asked “is it worth having another round of engagement to ask people to get in contact to remind them to check that they are actually on the list?”“We wrote three times, we advertised it in all the local media and our staff did interviews on radio. It’s up to the applicants to let us know if they change address or phone number. We’re not psychic,” he declared.Cllr John Gilligan (Ind) said the new regulations “are something designed in Dublin by people with nothing better to do.“I know from long experience there are letters going out to people who are illiterate. You get people who say they are on the waiting list for six or seven years and now they’re being asked to apply again. They don’t think they need to,” he explained.Meanwhile, committee members were told that there hasn’t been a rent review since 2011 and a look at streamlining the rent arrangements in the county and city was overdue now that the former two local authorities are one.
