Yeah, total expectation.
Operating in a very competitive environment
Costs of installment payments for the new ship also hit profits, but should be seen as investing in new business....response from the new shop has been very good and looks to be doing well, so far
Living within its means....rebased dividend easily payable out of the earnings.....right decision to cut dividend
Steady progress with the new 3 year insurance product
Better engagement with their customers
All in all aware of the competitive and difficult market and battening down the hatches in order to keep end of year profit expectation on line
They relied heavily on profits from insurance and clearly that golden egg from the past is going through much,much tougher times with lower profit expectations

I agree..Odey has put these new borrowed shares (460k) into his back pocket
Dow Jones could now be turning after 8 days of gains because the oil price shock....will bears milk the issue ?
Fed to drop interest rates on Wednesday?

"a guy who leads a country the Size of Coventry"
I was always told, size doesnt matter...its the impact that you have with it ...lol
Bettel was a bit a of a grower, today...made quite an impact with his 5 minutes of fame....
..true..he will be Mr Nobody by tomorrow !!
Yeah, true..they do certainly avoid levels of taxes in one country by declaring it at a lower rate in another ....and you are right...more needs to be done ...sure
I think these corporates have job creation offers in one hand and desire for tax exemptions in the other ....the Amazons of this world etc
"Appoint Deputy MPs, so the electorate can recall, replace without a bye election"
so....how are you going to appoint them ? ..by whom? how? ...and if the MP leaves the Party you have an unelected Deputy as the MP?? and if any Deputy Leaves , what happens then? ....
Please explain the system for these "Deputy MP's...thanks
" and not just a place rich ppl/corporations go to fiddle their taxes?"
I think the days when Luxembourg and Switzerland banks used to accept untaxed money have largely passed by...
...since 2010+ those days have largely gone as countries have more access to data and the rules on foreignors opening accounts is much tighter and more restrictive. In Switzerland now, you have to have an account in Switzerland to open an account and you have to give permission to give your tax details and acount to your home national tax office.
In many European countries you also have to declare having any accounts abroad. If you dont then the banks will not accept anything from them
The system is an awful tighter and data swapped between nations far more than it used to be.
The VAT is lower I think, about 17% so the online big boys seem to invoice you from Luxembourg and pay the lower rate on certain parts of the order, in order to save on the extra VAT ...they seem to use Luxembourg and Dublin

Crispin Odey, Paul Marshall, Peter Cruddas, Jon Moynihan, Jon Wood, Robin Birley, David Lilley, Philip Harris, JCB and The Bristol Port Company all donated (directly or indirectly through companies they and their co-directors are involved with) to Johnson’s leadership campaign and also contributed more than £2 million to the Vote Leave campaign.
o, how much are these firms set to make from Boris Johnson’s ‘do or die’ approach to Brexit?
From the financial data publicly available, Byline Times can reveal that currently £4,563,350,000 (£4.6 billion) of aggregate short positions on a ‘no deal’ Brexit have been taken out by hedge funds that directly or indirectly bankrolled Boris Johnson’s leadership campaign.
Most of these firms also donated to Vote Leave and took out short positions on the EU Referendum result. The ones which didn’t typically didn’t exist at that time but are invariably connected via directorships to companies that did.
Another £3,711,000,000 (£3.7 billion) of these short positions have been taken out by firms that donated to the Vote Leave campaign, but did not donate directly to the Johnson leadership campaign.
Currently, £8,274,350,000 (£8.3 billion) of aggregate short positions has been taken out by hedge funds connected to the Prime Minister and his Vote Leave campaign, run by his advisor Dominic Cummings, on a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
Under the Ministerial Code, Government ministers must have “no actual or perceived conflicts of interest”. But what could be a bigger conflict of interest than those bankrolling the Prime Minister also having a vast financial interest in a catastrophe for Britain?
I was quite enjoying being "a disgrace to the human race"
I mean, there's loads of "feckin weirdos" and "scumbags"
But "a disgrace to the human race"..that's kind of more unique
You need to set an alarm or something, to remind yourself when to take your medicine
Miss a pill, and you clearly have a behavioural lapse
Boris Johnson has suffered a fresh blow as the former Tory universities minister Sam Gyimah dramatically defected to the Liberal Democrats, accusing the prime minister of “veering towards populism and English nationalism”.
Gyimah is the first of the 21 Tory rebels who were stripped of the party whip for voting against the government for a bill to block no deal to join the Lib Dems
If you study that poll in detail you will find that :
ComRes’ latest voting intention shows the Conservatives just ahead of Labour with 30% compared to 29% of the vote respectively.
Of the entire survey
Leave Voters aged 44 or under - 26% of the Total Leave Voters
Remain Voters aged 44 and under - 43.3% of the Total Remain Voters
Leave Voters aged 55 or over - 54.3% of the Total Leave Voters
Remain Voters aged 55 or over - 38.9% of the Total Remain Voters
So..Leave Voters tend to me more in the older age group, than the younger age group
But when you look at the age groups of the people surveyed for both the Labour Party and the Consersative Party :
Conservative Voter under 45 - 23% of the total that defined themselves as Conservative
Labour Voters under 45 - 62% of the total that defined themselves as Labour
Conservative Voter aged 55+ - 62% of the total that defined themselves as Conservative
Labour Voters aged 55+ - 21.5% of the total that defined themselves as Labour
The larger group of 55+ year old Consersative Voting adults (3 x the size of the younger group) were more focused towards Brexit and Leaving than the Younger Labour Voters who had more "dont know" answers
So...on the face of it ..It "suggests" that the Daily Telegraph asked the Poll to concentrate to the older Conservative voters amongst Conservative voters, who they knew would tell them what they wanted to hear whilst the larger group of younger Labour Voters had more mixed views which diluted the negative views of Brexit (younger people do tend to have more mixed/dont know opinions )... Lib Dem age group evenly spread between under 44 and over 55
But as you can see the voting intention overall was very close Cons/Labour ...age groups tells a very different story to the Brexit viewpoint ...which the Poll knew and targeted
Now, could you ever imagine a right-leaning newspaper that appeals to older Brexit Conservatives asking for the opinions of ....older Brexit Conservative voters...in order to make their point ?? .
Edward Spencer-Churchill, half-brother of the current Duke of Marlborough and founder of the Blenheim Art Foundation, told the Sunday Times last month: “Despite being born with a silver spoon in my mouth I have never had a s--- on a golden toilet, so I look forward to it."
I am a bit suprisedto be honest that someone like Raab or Rees Mogg hasnt voiced louder to Bercow that the question about breaking the law or not largely depends on whether the Law was correct in the first place....which is obviously their argument and to where we are heading, albeit 6 months late
You should be a writer....so full of drama .....I bet half the things in your life have come from Europe....
You are probably like those homophobes who wear their Kalvin Klein undies and dont realise half their things originated from the gays
It is "taking back control" ....but instead of the people having the control..oh look...its in the hands of the beaurocrats and the Government Departments....well,well,well....who would have thought it .....
Most Government Departments are a bit of a disaster and guess what....the people dont seem to have much control in doing much about it.....well,well,well...who would have thought it
"...considering 27 of them are either in recession or reliant on them for subsidies "
Love all thse keyboard warrior comments that are a load of b*llocks
