The former Gordon Brown spin doctor said he convinced the MPs, who rely on trade union funding, to put Ed Miliband as their second preference. Under Labour’s electoral college, an MP’s vote is worth about 600 ordinary party member votes. The claim will come as an embarassment to Ed Miliband, who won the election by sweeping up the votes of trade union members. His brother David was more popular with both MPs and members.

Stock market crash bargains! I’d buy these 2 dirt-cheap FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Harvey Jones | Monday, 19th October, 2020 | More on: BLND WTB “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The stock market crash has left many top FTSE 100 stocks trading at dirt-cheap valuations. If you’re looking to buy bargain shares, you are spoiled for choice right now.Buying stocks that have been sold off in a stock market crash is risky, especially today. The economy faces a massive hit from Covid-19, and there could be more pain in the pipeline. However, history shows that buying shares at the moment of maximum uncertainty is a winning strategy.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Here are two risky stocks that could pay off. Buy them inside your Stocks and Shares ISA for tax-free returns, and look to hold for the long term.Whitbread share price slumpThe hospitality and leisure sector has been hit harder than most, with people locked down or banned from travelling, or nervously cutting back on their spending. Hotel and restaurant operator Whitbread (LSE: WTB) has inevitably had a tough time of it. Its share price fell by more than half in the stock market crash.It has also failed to benefit from the recovery. While many FTSE 100 shares have posted healthy gains lately, the Whitbread share price still trades 4% lower than six months ago. At the height of the first wave, Whitbread axed its dividend and temporarily shut all Premier Inn hotels in the UK and Germany. Last month, it announced 6,000 job losses, almost one in five of its workforce.Whitbread, which also owns Brewers Fayre and Beefeater restaurants, trades at just 11.4 earnings today. This has alerted analysts at Berenberg, who reckon the current share price undervalues its real estate by half, leaving the group undervalued.This is the type of opportunity investors should be sniffing out after a market crash. The Whitbread share price could fly out of the traps if, say, we get a vaccine or infection rates diminish. It’s a tempting buy, but risky given current unknowns.Stock market crash opportunityProperty development and investment company British Land Co (LSE: BLND) also saw its share price fall by more than half in the stock market crash, with little recovery since. That’s despite announcing it was resuming its dividend payments earlier this month, as footfall and retailer sales picked up strongly.British Land says its balance sheet remains strong, with £1bn of undrawn facilities and cash, with no requirement to refinance until 2024. It has collected 74% of June rents, 98% for offices and 57% for retail.The pandemic has hit commercial property and bricks and mortar retailers as hard as the leisure and hospitality sector. If the pandemic worsens and unemployment rises, rents could be at risk. British Land has been investing heavily in central London office space, which hangs in the balance with the rise of home working.These challenges are reflected in its valuation of 10.5 times earnings. You get a forecast yield of 3.7%. Like Whitbread, the British Land share price is cheap after the stock market crash, but comes with risks that some may found unacceptable.

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img TAGS: Edinburgh RugbyLeinsterMunsterNorthampton Saints Bootiful: Leigh Halfpenny kicked two penalties for the BluesFriday’s 9-7 win over the Scots may not have been a showpiece, but any win at Scotstoun is to be cherished and coming as it did on the back of the Blues’ 29-20 home triumph over the same opponents the weekend before, it makes them serious contenders in Heineken Cup Pool Two.Two penalties from Leigh Halfpenny and a 62m cannon from Rhys Patchell were enough to secure the win this time. Cardiff have to travel toToulon before playing Exeter at home in January, so they still have plenty of hard work to do, but it’s far more than any of their fans would have expected when 36-3 down after 40 minutes at Sandy Park.The SinnersJamie slips upHe has enjoyed many a glorious day with Leinster, but Saturday’s defeat by Northampton will not be one Jamie Heaslip wants to remember. One minute he was in the thick of a sustained, powerful attack as Leinster tried to pinch a victory at the death, and the next minute the ball slipped through his fingers as he tried to set up the next wave of pressure, and Northampton wing Jamie Elliott pounced on the loose ball and charged 95 metres to score a try which denied Leinster even a losing bonus point.Heaslip had his head in his hands as soon as the ball was gone. It was not the present he wanted as he prepared to celebrate his 30th birthday the next day.Worries for WarriorsAs the turn of the year approaches, Glasgow Warriors find themselves among the clubs whose European dream is over for another year. Back-to-back defeats by Cardiff Blues have left the Scottish side with just seven points from their first four Heineken Cup pool matches and they have no alternative in 2014 but to concentrate on their RaboDirect Pro 12 campaign.The Warriors are desperate to prove themselves at European level after showing they are real contenders in the Rabo, but they will have to wait another year, at least.Absolute ZeroThose who say the Heineken Cup is a flawed competition because not all teams have to make the same effort to qualify can point at Zebre in glee this week, as the Italian side sits on the bottom of Pool Three with no wins and no points from their first four games.By George: Hooker Jamie George grabbed a try for SaracensAfter losing 64-3 to Saracens this weekend, they have a points difference of minus 150 and they can look forward to travelling to Connacht then entertaining Toulouse in January. BARNET, ENGLAND – DECEMBER 14: Jamie George of Saracens breaks clear during the Heineken Cup Pool 3 round 4 match between Saracens and Zebre between Sarcens and Zebre at Allianz Park on December 14, 2013 in Barnet, England. (Photo by Bryn Lennon/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Making a point: Northampton wing Jamie Elliott waits for his team-mates to catch up after his last-gasp breakaway tryBy Katie FieldThe SaintsRenaissance menWalloped 40-7 at home by Leinster in the Heineken Cup last weekend, Northampton Saints produced one of rugby’s all-time great comebacks to beat the Irish giants 18-9 at the Aviva Stadium. Jim Mallinder’s team were unrecognisable from the limp, insipid side that capitulated in the first leg of the double-header. They led from the sixth minute with a try from George North and seemed to have sealed the match when a Kahn Fotuali’i drop-goal put them 13-9 up with two minutes to play.But Leinster almost snatched the game in stoppage time as they battered the Saints’ line in a breathless 20-phase attack. They seemed certain to score and break Northampton’s hearts, but with 81 minutes on the clock Jamie Heaslip spilt the ball and Saints’ wing Jamie Elliott raced the length of the pitch to score a try which denied the hosts even a losing bonus point. Many more finishes like this and the English sides are going to miss the Heineken Cup next year…To see the match highlights, including the remarkable final moments, follow this link.Jinking JJNever, ever write off Munster in a Heineken Cup match, until the final whistle. They have proved time and time again that they don’t know when they are beaten and on Saturday one of their young guns, JJ Hanrahan, added his name to the long list of Munster Heineken heroes when he scored a magnificent injury-time try to steal a win in Perpignan.Munster had trailed 9-3 at half-time, but the lead changed hands five times in a ding-dong second half. It had looked like being Perpignan’s day when a try from Tommaso Benvenuti put them 17-13 ahead with less than a minute to go, but Munster attacked down the right and replacement back Hanrahan stepped and scampered in from outside the 22 to snatch the 18-17 win for the Irish side. Incroyable.BraveheartsEdinburgh went into their clash with Gloucester at Kingsholm as underdogs after losing 23-12 to them at Murrayfield last Sunday. Their hopes of a unlikely victory became even more slender when fly-half Harry Leonard failed a fitness test on a leg injury before kick-off and Greig Tonks had to don the No 10 jersey for the first time at professional level.But the Scots proceeded to out-think and outplay Gloucester, beating them 16-10 with a try from Ben Atiga and 11 points from the boot of Jack Cuthbert. If only they hadn’t been so error-prone last weekend, Edinburgh could have been challenging Munster at the top of Pool Six.Singing the BluesThere may be more for Welsh rugby fans to fret over than celebrate at the moment, with the ever-deepening off-field crisis involving the Welsh Rugby Union and the regions, but Cardiff Blues are giving their supporters a reason to smile after back-to-back wins over Pro12 title-chasers Glasgow Warriors. European rugby’s elite competition cannot afford to accommodate such a weak side because they skew the whole competition. The teams who play them in the pool stage have an enhanced chance of reaching the quarter-finals as one of the two best runners up because they can rack up the bonus points and tries, which is unfair on the teams in tougher pools.last_img read more

Episcopalians, Anglicans to join push for rural women’s empowerment at…

first_img Rector Albany, NY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem The 2017 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women included 45 member states plus accredited nongovernmental organizations such as the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Photo: UNCSW[Episcopal News Service] Women and girls in remote, rural pockets of the world will stand in the forefront of the minds of Episcopal delegates heading to a two-week session at the United Nations in one of the most populous cities in the United States — New York.The 62nd United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) is taking place March 12-23. For 2018, the theme zeroes in on the challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls.“This is the second-largest UN event in New York City every year. It’s all very dramatic and exciting,” Lynnaia Main, Episcopal Church representative to the United Nations, told Episcopal News Service. The largest event is the United Nations General Assembly, held in September.Why rural women and girls?Virtually every gender and development indicator with available data reveals that, globally, rural women fare worse than rural men and urban women, according to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres’ report for the 62nd commission, based on a 2016 study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.“Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in rural areas around the globe is clearly linked to all other goals and targets, including ending poverty in all its forms, eradicating hunger, achieving food security, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture, achieving full and productive employment and decent work for all and taking action to combat climate change,” Guterres wrote.Studies have long shown how inequality between women and men creates a domino effect of suffering for everyone worldwide, and the inherent challenges of rural life only compound the problem. For instance, just 39 percent of rural girls attend secondary school, while every additional year of primary school increases girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 percent, a global UNCSW report shows. More education also encourages them to marry later and have fewer children, and leaves them less vulnerable to violence.Of the many solutions that Sadiya Butros Tia Dent would like to bring back home to Sudan, the first would be practical ways to improve the education and training of girls and women. Tia Dent was selected by the first archbishop and primate of the Province of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, Ezekiel Kondo, to represent the new Anglican province created in 2017 at UNCSW.She wants to establish a center for internet technology, but also for basic reading and writing skills. Tia Dent spoke to ENS soon after she arrived to the Episcopal Church Office in Manhattan to rest and meet others before the two-week session. “Especially in a country like Sudan, they don’t even know their rights. To know, we need to be equipped,” said Tia Dent, who has a master’s degree in human rights.Also, on average, women comprise about 43 percent of the agricultural labor force in developing countries, and if these women had the same access to resources as men do, they could increase yields on their farms by 20 to 30 percent, raising total agricultural output in these countries by 2.5 to 4 percent, the report shows. This would reduce the number of hungry people in the world by around 12 to 17 percent.How the Episcopal Church fits in“Sometimes what comes out of this is we’re more aware of the gaps on the church side,” Main told ENS. “We also encourage our delegates to think, be proactive and accountable to their communities back home to share this with others.”Improving the lives of women and girls worldwide is a tenet of the baptismal covenant, says Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in a written statement, based on General Convention resolutions and submitted to the commission. Episcopal delegates shape their advocacy from that statement and its priorities, sharing their own stories, reflections and concerns that further the cause.The church’s mission and work through rural congregations and networks, including many indigenous communities, are to “provide rural women and girls with spiritual care, socio-economic development, ministries to farmers, migrant workers and women, domestic poverty and asset-based community development programs and international development programs through Episcopal Relief & Development,” Curry wrote.Yet basic resources and services in rural areas can be difficult to access, costly, insufficient or nonexistent, Curry said. Those inadequate infrastructure systems harm almost every aspect of life, from access to water, sanitation, stable and nutritious food to quality medical care, education, social protection and family support services.A commission to actBut this is not a conference to simply discuss problems, participants say. It’s about planning action. Curry’s statement establishes four priorities for member states, United Nations entities and civil society:Prioritize resources and programs for marginalized groups of rural women and girls,extend access to basic resources and services to rural areas,address environmental concerns and extend land rights,and promote gender equality education and practices and eradicate gender-based violence.The 45 UNCSW member states, with input from accredited nongovernmental organizations including the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion, plan to hash out a final draft of agreed conclusions by the end of the session or soon thereafter, Main said. The final agreement goes to the United Nations. If approved, the General Assembly expects member states to bring those priorities home to implement them in the following years.“It furthers the cause by taking action, and the member states are responsible for that. If you don’t have agreed conclusions, nothing can happen,” Rachel Chardon, administrative officer for the Anglican Communion’s Office at the United Nations General Program, told ENS.There’s official follow-up, too.Since 2006, the commission has reviewed how the agreed-upon conclusions from some previous session were implemented, and this year, the commission is looking at the 47th UNCSW session to see how member states have implemented those priorities.The priority theme in 2003 was “participation and access of women to the media, and information and communication technologies and their impact on and use as an instrument for the advancement and empowerment of women.”Episcopalians participate in several waysThe 17 Episcopal delegates, hailing from places such as Venezuela and Puerto Rico to Tennessee and Washington state, are diverse in age, culture, geography, race and experience. These delegates will be able to attend the official UNCSW proceedings at the United Nations, including joint advocacy with the group, Ecumenical Women.“We’re there to show that the Episcopal Church is present and that we care. And, to share what the church thinks needs to happen,” Main said. “We track how they work out the outcome document through our own lens and comment on it as it develops. We’re not the main players at the table, but we’re an active part of the process.”Other Episcopalians attend parallel events and UNCSW activities. One block from the United Nations, the Episcopal Church Center will hold several worship services and events throughout the two-week period for Episcopalians and others to attend and network. Episcopal churches will host events as well.Episcopal participation in this UN effort aligns with the “leave no one behind” and “reach the furthest behind first” principles of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals, which the church affirmed in 2016.Advocating for gender equality and empowerment was commended at the 2015 General Convention, and that includes transgender individuals, as well as women, Curry wrote in the statement. This work involves a lot of education.“This requires correcting present social, political and economic inequalities and identifying root causes such as traditional understandings of gender roles, socialization of women and girls to believe that they are ‘less than,’ passivity, religious beliefs, sexism, machismo and patriarchy,” he said.“New values must be communicated through culturally contextualized gender equality education that includes men and boys, and demonstrates that gender equality benefits all people.”— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service and a freelance writer and editor based in Brooklyn.

CIA turned in Mandela in ’62, still undermines Africa

first_imgConfirmation of United States efforts to prevent Africa from reaching genuine self-determination and national liberation resurfaced in mid-May when the international media circulated damning reports about the CIA’s pivotal role in the arrest of African National Congress and South African Communist Party official Nelson Mandela in 1962.Nelson Mandela in 1962.Donald Rickard, who in 1962 was the United States vice-consul in Durban, said he and his superiors believed that Mandela was “the world’s most dangerous communist outside of the Soviet Union.” And he had no reservations about alerting the apartheid regime about his location. (British Telegraph, May 15)Mandela was stopped at a police roadblock in Howick, KwaZulu Natal on Aug. 5, 1962, and arrested. His capture provided the legal and political basis for trials that culminated with the Rivonia Treason convictions, sending him to over 27 years in prison. The CIA’s pivotal role in his arrest has been repeatedly documented since 1990, the eve of Mandela’s first visit to the U.S. after his release from prison.Rickard claimed that ANC informants alerted him that Mandela was traveling to Howick, and he relayed this information to South African police, noting that the ANC-SACP leader was planning to return to Johannesburg.Secret travelsMandela had traveled outside of apartheid South Africa to win international support for the national liberation movement against settler colonialism and to receive arms training in order to build the military wing of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe. By early 1961, the ANC declared that it was futile to continue peaceful methods of struggle in the aftermath of the Sharpeville massacre of March 1960 and other atrocities.In March 1962 Mandela undertook military instructions from the Algerian National Liberation Front (FLN) at their bases across the border in Morocco. In his testimony during the Rivonia Trial in 1964, Mandela said, “In Africa I was promised support by … Ben Bella, now president of Algeria.” (nelsonmandela.org)A publication by Mandela, “Conversations with Myself,” includes numerous extracts from his 1962 diary, all of which verify his military training at FLN facilities in Morocco.Around the same time Mandela also took military courses in Ethiopia then led by Haile Selassie I. According to an article published by the British Broadcasting Corporation, “In July 1962, Col. Fekadu Wakene taught South African political activist Nelson Mandela the tricks of guerrilla warfare — including how to plant explosives before slipping quietly away into the night. Mr. Mandela was in Ethiopia, learning how to be the commander-in-chief of Umkhonto we Sizwe — the armed wing of the African National Congress.” (Dec. 9, 2013)Col. Fekadu later praised the future South African president, saying, “Nelson Mandela was a very strong and resilient student, and he took instruction well and was really very likeable.” He “concentrated on the task in hand.”Continuing U.S. strategy in AfricaThe CIA intervention in 1962 was part of a broader U.S. policy extending from the 1960s to the present. In 1960, the CIA and the U.S. State Department plotted to overthrow and assassinate Congolese leader Patrice Lumumba. Immediately after the revolutionary Congo prime minister won the largest bloc of votes for his Congolese National Movement, his government was neutralized and displaced by a coup.Lumumba later fled to the east of the country where he was kidnapped by forces allied with the imperialists. He was subjected to torture and a brutal assassination. Army Col. Mobutu Sese Seko, a CIA asset, served as the front for Washington and various mining corporations for 37 years until he was displaced in a national uprising in 1996-97.Later in the West African state of Ghana, the first prime minister and president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, was overthrown in a military and police coup on Feb. 24, 1966, which was coordinated by the CIA. Nkrumah had been a staunch supporter of Lumumba, along with dozens of other liberation movements across the continent. (See “In Search of Enemies” by John Stockwell)The former Portuguese colony of Angola in southwest Africa was on the verge of national independence in November 1975 when the country was invaded by the South African Defense Forces and the CIA in order to prevent the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola, which was aligned with the South West African People’s Organization of Namibia and the ANC of South Africa, from taking power.The 55,000 Cuban internationalist forces deployed by then-President Fidel Castro worked in conjunction with national and regional forces to drive back the SADF, establishing Angola as a rear base of the struggle to eliminate white-minority rule in the subcontinent.Between 1975 and 1989, approximately 350,000 Cubans served in Angola. The defeat of the SADF and the CIA in Angola represented a major turning point in the overall movement of the African people for self-determination and sovereignty.As recent as 2011, the administration of President Barack Obama dispatched hundreds of CIA operatives to Libya, setting the stage for a massive seven-month bombing campaign, which toppled the government of Col. Muammar Gadhafi, a former chair of the African Union.Business Insider reported this fact at the time, saying, “CIA operatives have been working in Libya along with MI6 agents and other spies to gather information for use in airstrikes. … Obama signed an order several weeks ago authorizing the CIA to provide arms and other support to the rebels.” (March 30, 2011)These instances represent a few important cases highlighting the legacy of U.S. interference in the internal affairs of the African continent. Such occurrences reveal that Washington has never been a supporter of African independence. This stance is in sharp contrast with that of such socialist countries as Cuba and the former Soviet Union.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Police arrest leading suspect in murder of Raúl Gibb Guerrero

first_img July 5, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police arrest leading suspect in murder of Raúl Gibb Guerrero News MexicoAmericas Help by sharing this information Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state News Martin Rojas, the leading suspect in the 8 April murder of La Opinión editor Raul Gibb Guerrero in the state of Veracruz, was arrested yesterday in the United States. The alleged head of a Veracruz gasoline contraband ring, Rojas was arrested on a money-laundering charge but investigators said he is also suspected of ordering Gibb’s murder.__________________________________________________________26.04.05 – Local gang members tried to bribe newspaper editor a year before his murderMembers of a local crime organization called “Los Chupaductos” tried to bribe Raúl Gibb Guerrero, the editor of the regional daily La Opinión in the eastern state of Veracruz, a year before he was murdered on 8 April, according to the online newspaper Crónica. They allegedly went to his office and offered him money not to run a series of reports about gasoline smuggling in which they were implicated. The money offered came from the racket. Gibb did publish the reports.The bribe attempt was discovered in the course of the federal justice ministry’s investigation into Gibb’s murder. As a result, Los Chupaductos leader Martin Rojas was detained as the prime suspect but his lawyers got him released on bail. Investigators are meanwhile also considering two alternative motives – that he was killed because of his coverage of drug trafficking or that he was killed at the behest of Julio Domínguez, the editor of the newspaper El Noroeste, who allegedly threatened him._____________________________________________________11.04.2005 – Gunmen slay newspaper editor in Veracruz stateReporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the murder of Raúl Gibb Guerrero, the editor of the regional daily La Opinión, on 8 April in Papantla, in the eastern state of Veracruz. The authorities reportedly suspect drug traffickers of being behind the killing.”There have been three extremely serious acts of violence against the Mexican press in a week,” the press freedom organization protested in a letter to the federal minister of justice. “The disappearance of Alfredo Jiménez Mota, the editor of the daily El Imparcial in northwestern Sonora state, on 2 April, the attempt on the life of radio journalist Guadalupe García Escamilla of Estéreo 91 XHNOE in Nuevo Laredo in northeastern Tamaulipas state on 5 April, and Raúl Gibb Guerrero’s death now signal a further deterioration in the situation of journalists in Mexico,” the letter said.”The scourge of drug trafficking directly threats press freedom. It falls to the federal authorities to react to this nationwide menace by combatting organized crime and ensuring the media are protected. Too many local investigations have led nowhere, sustaining a climate of impunity that must not be allowed to continue,” the letter concluded.Gibb was gunned down at around 9:30 p.m. some 200 metres from his home, to which he was returning. He sustained seven bullet injuries, three in the head, three in the abdomen and one in the left arm. Police said the shots were fired from a distance of about two metres. According to witnesses, four men fired about 15 times from two cars that were following Gibb’s car, which ran off the road and crashed into the verge.The killing bore the hallmarks of the work of contract killers. The Associated Press news agency quoted José Luis Santiago Vasconcelos, the prosecutor in charge of the case, as saying he suspected a link with drug traffickers, who are very active in Veracruz state. La Opinión, which is sold in the north of the state, often has articles on the subject and had one the day before Gibb’s murder.A year ago, the newspaper also reported on the theft and trafficking of fuel taken from the state oil company Petróleos Mexicanos. A local businessman subsequently had to stop operating and is now being prosecuted for tax evasion. Despite all the enemies he had made as a result of his work, Gibb never asked for bodyguards. He is the first journalist to be killed this year in Mexico. Three were murdered last year.
