What is bank capital and why does it matter

    The collapse of Lehman Brothers and the world economy was the work of Baby Boomers who now want to further mar Millennials' future Alarming new research suggests the UK’s four biggest banks would need to raise another £155bn in fresh capital to withstand a new financial crisis, despite the view of the Bank of England Governor that lenders have an adequate cushion to cope with further turmoil. But what is "capital"? And why should we be concerned? What is a bank’s capital cushion? Capital, broadly, represents shareholders’ money on the balance sheet of a commercial bank.

PM Theresa May Preparing To Lift Grammar Schools Ban

    Theresa May is said to be planning to allow a new wave of grammar schools for the first time in 20 years. A government source suggested bringing back academic selection in state schools would be part of her agenda to increase social mobility.

Mrs May attended a grammar school and recently allowed a new "annex" for one in her Maidenhead constituency, which is permitted within the law. The green light for a new generation of grammars, which now account for just 163 of the 3,000 state secondaries in England, would cheer Tory backbenchers who failed to win David Cameron's backing. Downing Street said: "The Prime...

Also in July, two Muslim women were beaten up by vigilantes over accusations that they had been carrying beef.

Germany is writing to UK startups to try and persuade them to move to Berlin after Brexit

    A German politician is writing to London startups in an attempt to persuade them to relocate to Berlin after the Brexit vote. Berlin Senator for Economics, Technology and Research Cornelia Yzer is warning British companies that remaining in Britain after the country leaves the European Union will damage their businesses, and she says that Berlin will provide resources that will help them relocate. "Britain's vote to leave the European Union will severely affect your operations in the United Kingdom," the letter reads. "Probably you will already check the feasibility to move your company right in the heart of the European Union." Yzer's pitch continues: "Berlin is not only the capital of Europe's strongest national economy but also the fastest growing state in Germany ... B...
