UK Construction Giant With 43,000 Employees Collapses

UK Construction Giant With 43,000 Employees Collapses:

Tense last-minute rescue negotiations failed to yield a result over the weekend, and on Monday morning a major British construction company announced it was going into liquidation after it was unsuccessful in securing a financial lifeline. Carillion, which employs 43,000 people around the world, said in a statement Monday that rescue talks with stakeholders including the British government had collapsed, sending the company into compulsory liquidation.

Commenting on the collapse, Carillion Chairman Philip Green said in a statement that “This is a very sad day for Carillion…Over recent months huge efforts have been made to restructure Carillion to deliver its sustainable future.”

In recent days however we have been unable to secure the funding to support our business plan and it is therefore with the deepest regret that we have arrived at this decision.

We understand that HM Government will be providing the necessary funding required by the Official Receiver to maintain the public services carried on by Carillion staff, subcontractors and suppliers.

Carillion, which has numerous public sector and employs 19,500 workers in Britain and 10,000 in Canada, has its roots in the construction business: roughly three-quarters of its sales come from the U.K., where it has hundreds of contracts with the government. It also builds infrastructure for high speed rail and power distribution projects, and provides government services such as road maintenance and hospital management.

Study: ‘No Deal’ Will Cost the EU £507bn, While Britain Gains £641bn

Study: ‘No Deal’ Will Cost the EU £507bn, While Britain Gains £641bn:

A new study has calculated a ‘No Deal’ Brexit would cost the EU some £507 billion, while the UK reaps a £641 billion windfall.

Cardiff University’s Professor Patrick Minford argues that, for the United Kingdom, “a breakdown would be a short-term nuisance but a substantial economic gain [over the longer term]”.

For the EU, on the other hand, ‘No Deal’ is “both a short-term nuisance and a substantial economic loss [over the longer term]”.

Paradise Papers: Queen has millions invested offshore in predator firm preying on UK’s poorest

Paradise Papers: Queen has millions invested offshore in predator firm preying on UK’s poorest:

A large cache of leaked documents has revealed that more than £10 million of the Queen’s private wealth has been invested offshore and in a UK company accused of preying on Britain’s poorest people.

Details of the investments were leaked as part of the Paradise Papers on Sunday, a trove of more than 13 million documents from the world’s leading offshore law firms released through the International Consortium for Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), of which the BBC is a part.

More than 120,000 people and companies have been identified during the leak, including Queen Elizabeth II.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Based on this compassionate tale, and the plan to shift the Windsor homeless in time for a wedding funded by the dumb British taxpayer, one can only hope this lot of sponging bastards are the successful victims of a UK people’s rebellion.

Then again…meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

Non-urgent health care services being put on hold across the UK as state-run health care nightmare edges toward collapse

Non-urgent health care services being put on hold across the UK as state-run health care nightmare edges toward collapse:

The National Health Service in New England has put a hold on non-urgent health care services, as the state-run healthcare system edges toward collapse. State officials have instructed hospitals across the country to delay non-emergency procedures and only deal with emergency patients first. About 55,000 operations are to be put on hold in January as England’s health system goes into full rationing mode.  There aren’t enough hospital beds or staff to accommodate the mounting pressure of a sick and dying population.

British man jailed in Dubai for WhatsApp message about dodgy car

British man jailed in Dubai for WhatsApp message about dodgy car:

A British real estate agent has been jailed for sending a WhatsApp message to a dodgy car salesman after he was swindled out of £6000. He asked the car dealer “how do you sleep at night?”

Kingston man Yaseen Killick, 29, spent £6000 on a second-hand Volkswagen Golf – only for the vehicle to break down hours later. Killick then discovered the car had previously been written off, so he sent the dodgy dealer an angry message on WhatsApp.

“How do you sleep at night knowing you’re ripping people off?” Killick wrote in the message. Killick also threatened to take the car salesman to court over the dodgy deal and said that selling the car to him was “morally wrong.”

But that certainly wasn’t the end of it. The car dealer complained to police over the threatening message, which resulted in Killick’s arrest at Dubai airport where he and his wife were trying to board a flight back to the UK to spend Christmas with relatives.
