Arcadia on brink of collapse; record month for stock markets – business live
Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news 7.24am GMT MPs and unions have been urging Sir Philip Green to “make good” the huge shortfall in Arcadia’s pension scheme.Otherwise, staff could suffer a 10% cut to their retirement income if the company collapses, and the scheme is placed into the UK’s Pension Protection Fund.Stephen Timms, the chair of parliament’s work and pensions select committee, called on Green and his family to plug an estimated £350m funding shortfall. He said he would write to the Pensions Regulator on Monday to “underline the importance of securing the interests of pension scheme members”, adding: “Whatever happens to the group, the Green family must make good the deficit in the Arcadia pension fund.”The former Labour MP Frank Field, who clashed with Green when his BHS department store chain went bust leaving a huge hole in its pension fund, said Green should honour previous promises that he would look after his “family” of workers. Related: Philip Green urged to plug pension gap before Arcadia administration 7.16am GMT Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business. Arcadia is on the brink of becoming the biggest corporate casualty of Britain’s Covid-19 crisis. Sir Philip Green’s retail group is expected to filed for administration as soon as today, having failed to agree a rescue deal to keep the company afloat.This is obviously a sad day, we tried to save it a year ago when £200m was put into the business and the pension fund, but it’s impossible to operate now.“You don’t know when you’ll be open, you don’t know what stock to buy.”(global equities) MSCI all-country Index is on track for the biggest monthly gain since 1990 inception, chart @BloombergTV https://t.co/hUImQCXNSm pic.twitter.com/t3q0FnVXDLEuropean Opening Calls:#FTSE 6330 -0.60%#DAX 13251 -0.64%#CAC 5567 -0.56%#AEX 608 -0.62%#MIB 22230 -0.55%#IBEX 8144 -0.57%#OMX 1921 -0.84%#STOXX 3502 -0.73%#IGOpeningCall Continue reading...

Coronation Street the early years - formidable females and the birth of an icon
It is a national institution, captivating millions and transcending generations for six decades. But Coronation Street was nearly axed after its very first episode.On December 9, 1960, viewers were introduced to an idealistic young student called Ken Barlow, snobby Rovers Return landlady Annie Walker and glamorous siren Elsie Tanner, desperately trying to keep her jailbird son Dennis on the straight and narrow.It was a show that broke the mould with its depiction of the everyday lives of folk living on a fictional street in gloomy Weatherfield, a town the soap’s writer Tony Warren said was “four miles in any one direction from the centre of Manchester”. But not everyone approved.Granada Television’s general manager declared he couldn’t find a “single redeeming quality” in the programme and ordered a substitute to be found quick smart. The Daily Mirror’s TV critic Ken Irwin famously said it was “doomed”.Viewers lapped it up and that replacement programme was never needed.

Barefoot in thorns: Gaza through the eyes of a Palestinian photographer
My Gaza by Jehad al-Saftawi is a personal account of peoples’ suffering as they go about their lives under Israeli blockadeWorking as a journalist in Gaza, says Palestinian photographer Jehad al-Saftawi, is like walking barefoot in a field of thorns. “You must always watch where you step. Each neighbourhood is composed of its own intimate social network, and travelling through them with a camera makes you a significant suspicion.“You’re caught between the two sides of the conflict: the rulers of Gaza limit what you can photograph and write about, imprisoning and torturing those who disobey. At the same time, the Israeli army sees you as a potential threat that must be eliminated, as has been the fate of many Palestinian journalists.” Continue reading...
