EMERGENCY funding must be made available to businesses to ensure they are ready for Brexit, deal or no deal, firms are demanding. Trade bodies and business groups are calling on the Chancellor to help them prepare to leave the EU by slashing crippling business rates and handing out vouchers in the upcoming Budget. Insiders told The Sun that ministers were demanding firms prepare for events that might not even happen - and they would take a huge hit to get them ready. Last week ministers released a slew of information telling businesses and public bodies how to prepare in case we don’t secure a deal with the bloc by March next year. Customers could find going on holiday and ordering things online more expensive because Britain wouldn’t be a part of the EU’s payments process if there wasn’t a deal. The notices on trade states that customs declarations would be needed and tariffs might have to be paid on imports and exports. Buried in the small print it … [Read more...] about Firms call on Government to slash crippling business taxes after advice on No Deal Brexit creates ‘uncertainty’
Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press Published 10:41 p.m. UTC Jul 13, 2018 WASHINGTON — First it was Carl, and then it was Sandy: For 40 years, a Levin has represented Michigan in Congress. But if Andy Levin is going to keep that streak alive, he’ll have to work for it. Running to succeed his dad, U.S. Rep. Sander Levin, D-Royal Oak, who has represented southeastern Michigan since 1983 (Carl Levin, Sandy’s younger brother, joined the U.S. Senate in 1979 and stepped down in 2014), Andy Levin, 57, has attracted a Democratic opponent in former state Rep. Ellen Lipton of Huntington Woods who presents a viable challenge to the family line. Across the country, women have been winning in several contested primaries, especially among Democrats, and Lipton — who, along with labor lawyer Martin Brook, is running for the Democratic nod in Michigan’s 9th Congressional District on Aug. 7 — presents a compelling narrative. She's a mother who has … [Read more...] about Andy Levin looks to take dad Sander Levin’s seat in Congress
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday threw in his support hard for two different so-called “Make America Great Again” candidates, Dr. Mark Harris in North Carolina and Danny Tarkanian in Nevada–a move designed to hold the House GOP majority. Both Harris and Tarkanian were added to McCarthy’s “Young Guns” program at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), a move designed to secure them enough resources to win their respective general election battles later this year.McCarthy said in the NRCC press release announcing Harris, Tarkanian, and nearly a dozen other additions to the Young Guns program this cycle: The Republican House and Trump Administration are leading America’s comeback. Across the country, conservatives are coming together and stepping into the political arena to help complete the work needed to strengthen our economy, our military, and our country. I am proud to welcome each candidate to the Young Guns … [Read more...] about Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Throws in with MAGA Candidates to Preserve GOP Majority
