Although all sorts of things are possible in these kinds of situations, it is fair to say that since a meeting between their top executives last week relations between the two groups have been far from cordial.BHP is talking about offering $130 a share for Potash stock, a value that has been described as grossly inadequate by the Potash board.But to make matters even more acrimonious Potash yesterday revealed details of a shareholder rights plan that is automatically triggered when a hostile bidder buys up 20 per cent of its stock.Such schemes, commonly known as poison pills, are not allowed in the UK – one such scheme might have helped Cadbury’s Roger Carr when he got the knock on the door from Kraft. The so-called Potash shareholder rights plan, which seems designed as much to help management keep their jobs as it does to protect shareholders, would have the effect of diluting a hostile bidder’s stake and is designed to force a bidder to pay a premium price.At this stage BHP has not said where it goes from here. It has the financing in place to fund the deal through bank debt and analysts such as Charles Kernot at Evolution Securities will cheer the group along if it can bag this one at the right price. But the early signs are that Potash will be fighting hard to get a higher price and, as ever with these deals, BHP must be careful not to overpay. As broker CLSA says: “this is just the start of a long battle.”SPLIT BANKWhatever the minutes from the last Bank of England meeting say today, there is every reason to think it is becoming harder to produce unanimity amongst Bank members.For months and months as the economy struggled to find a way out of recession, there was little doubt that interest rates had to be held low and there was a need for some loosening of monetary policy through the method known as quantitative easing.But last month’s record increase in food prices has kept inflation above three per cent and sparked warnings that the cost of living will keep rising, provoking concern amongst Bank members about the threat of inflation. This threat is intensified by the imminent rise in VAT which will feed through into the system in 2011.Yesterday Bank governor Mervyn King wrote another letter explaining why the inflation rate was outside the target agreed with the government. King’s view is that the recent inflation blip may last for a while but that it is not being embedded in the system.Bank Monetary Policy Committee member Andrew Sentance is more anxious and has in the past voted for a rise in interest rates.Others are more troubled by fears that the recovery might run out of steam, especially when the public sector job cuts start to come into effect. Many think they know the answer but in truth I am not surprised that the Bank is split and I can only see the splits becoming more pronounced in the months [email protected] Heath is away BHP’s bid provokes poisonous reply last_img read more

No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm As the news continues to be dominated by tales of Ireland’s financial woes it seems that all high street financial institutions are being made to suffer. Two tracking metrics produced by YouGov BrandIndex demonstrate a significant correlation between widely publicised financial crises and significant downturns in the public perception of the high street banks and savings sector.BAILOUT?HITS?HIGH STREETIn the wake of the current bailout crisis the overall BrandIndex “Index” score for the high street banking and savings sector – which combines six measures of brand health including value, reputation and likelihood to recommend – fell to a low of -0.4 on 19 November in comparison to a summer high of 2 in August, though there has been limited recovery since. GREEK?DEBT KNOCKED INDEXThis mirrors a trend seen back in April when the Greek bailout crisis dominated the news and the index score reached a low of -0.8.Moreover, the BrandIndex “Quality” score, which gives a more direct sense of how the public rates the performance of a brand irrespective of its price, and which gives insight into how people think the high street finance firms are performing at their job, has also suffered substantially. From a summer high of 2.8 at the end of August, the “quality” score fell to 0 on the 22 November.When broken down further, the BrandIndex scores also demonstrate a significant London/UK divide, with current scores amongst Londoners on the 19 November being 3.6 and 0.9 for “quality” and “index” respectively in contrast to 0.4 and -0.4 for the rest of the UK – indicative perhaps of the greater numbers of Londoners working in finance. UK?POPULATION IMPATIENTOpinion seems to be polarising, with the larger portion of the UK population growing short of patience with the financial industry and judging all by the travails of some.Stephan Shakespeare is co-founder and chief executive of YouGov.

Corn and Soybean Groups Urge Quick House Action on Farm Bill

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Corn and Soybean Groups Urge Quick House Action on Farm Bill By Gary Truitt – Jul 5, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE Farm groups are already weighing in on the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act – released by House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson Thursday. National Sorghum Producers commends the House Agriculture Committee’s bipartisan commitment to strong U.S. farm policy and the nation’s farmers and ranchers. NSP says the text released by Committee Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson indicates producers will have the opportunity to choose the policy option that best fits their farm and provides minimum price protection. Both are components NSP has advocated for from the beginning of the process.The National Cotton Council is encouraging House Ag Committee members to pass the bill as introduced in the discussion draft. NCC Chairman Chuck Coley says by providing cotton producers a choice of the Stacked Income Protection Plan or the new Supplemental Coverage Option – Chairman Lucas has offered programs that provide a safety net for upland cotton – while also offering a clear path to resolution of the Brazil case. Coley says the group is pleased that the range of programs provides choices that offer a balanced safety net across commodities and regions – but still allow for market-driven planting decisions. He also points to improvements to crop insurance and a reasonable approach to payment limits and income means tests.

A year after trial of Liu Xiaobo, journalists sentenced to jail in Xinjiang and Tibet

first_img Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Follow the news on China RSF_en One year ago a Beijing court handed down a jail sentence of 11 years to Liu Xiaobo (刘哓波), the Chinese authorities thus sending a very tough Christmas Day message to the international community which had pleaded for him. At the end of a travesty of a trial from which his wife, his supporters, the foreign press and diplomats were banned, China’s most renowned prisoner of opinion was found guilty of “subversion of state power”. Since then, and despite the dissident being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the authorities continue to view him as a “criminal”. We call on the authorities in Beijing to reopen Liu Xiaobo’s legal file to allow a review of his trial for “subversion of state power”. We urge President Hu Jintao, ahead of his visit to the United States in January, to do everything possible to secure the release of Liu Xiaobo and his supporters, including his wife Liu Xia, who is currently under house arrest in Beijing. Trial of Liu Xiaobo on 23 December 2009: http://en.rsf.org/chine-verdict-for-liu-xiaobo-25-12-2009,38561.htmlSpecial file on Liu Xiaobo: http://en.rsf.org/liu-xiaobo.htmlMeanwhile in Xinjiang and Tibet, judges continue to hand down very harsh prison sentences to journalists for what they write. We have just learned that Memetjan Abdulla, a journalist working for the Uyghur service of Chinese national radio and manager of the Uyghur website Salkin, was sentenced to life imprisonment in April this year for translating and posting articles on the plight of Uyghurs in the country. Gulmire Imin, a young woman also working for the website, was handed down the same sentence for “revealing” state secrets “organising a demonstration” and for “separatism”. Radio Free Asia said this very harsh sentence, pronounced after a secret trial in Urumqi, was also intended to punish him for answering questions from foreign journalists and translating or posting a series of articles on Salkin. The authorities also accused Memetjan Abdulla of having provoked ethnic unrest in Xinjiang in July 2009, after Uyghur workers died in a factory in Shaoguan. He also reportedly translated into Uyghur and posted on Salkin, an appeal by the (banned) World Uyghur Congress to demonstrate abroad against this incident.For more information about Memetjan Abdulla, held since September 2009: www.rfa.org/english/news/uyghur/journalist-12212010162519.htmlOther journalists and webmasters sentenced in Xinjiang: http://en.rsf.org/china-uyghur-journalist-and-website-24-07-2010,38016.htmlLast May, Reporters Without Borders sent an open letter to Zhang Chunxian, the new secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Xinjiang: http://en.rsf.org/china-open-letter-to-the-xinjiang-s-20-05-2010,37527.html In Tibet, Sungrab Gyatso, a monk at the Mu-ra monastery was found guilty of having fomented demonstrations. This editor of the Tibetan magazine Rewa-kang-lam (Hope in March), was sentenced to three years in prison after a trial, on 16 December 2010, before a court in Kanlho. The Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy (based in Dharamsala, India) said this defender of Tibetan culture has been in prison since March 2010. Reporters Without Borders calls for his release.The organisation is very concerned about the plight of Tashi Rabten, editor of the Tibetan magazine Shar Dungri, who has been secretly imprisoned since 6 April this year. He is reportedly being held in harsh conditions in a prison in Barkham, Ngaba region, in Sichuan province. His colleague, Druklo, was released in May this year.Fore more information: http://en.rsf.org/china-two-young-tibetan-writers-arrested-09-04-2010,36… News China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures ChinaAsia – Pacific March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Organisation December 24, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A year after trial of Liu Xiaobo, journalists sentenced to jail in Xinjiang and Tibet June 2, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
