  • New tans, same old 'polycrisis' as Europe's summer ends

    By Alastair Macdonald BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union grinds back into action this week after its August break, still dazed by Britain's midsummer vote to quit the EU and facing much the same "polycrisis" as a year ago: a mass of refugees, a fragile economy, hostile Russians and, yes, those Brits, now more awkward than ever. When President Jean-Claude Juncker makes his annual State of the Union address to Parliament in Strasbourg on Sept. 14, he might easily repeat last year's warning: the EU had a "last chance" to save itself from a tide of centrifugal nationalisms. Last week, the EU's remaining Big Three -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and their host, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi -- felt they needed to renew their vows at the wellspring of the union, the island of Ventotene, where in 1941 prisoners of Mussolini wrote a manifesto for a united Europe.

  • Sir Philip Green Wants Probe Dropped ‎If He Plugs BHS Pension Gap

    Sir Philip Green is seeking assurances that regulators will abandon a probe into‎ BHS's vast pension deficit if he makes a "voluntary" financial contribution to the retirement pots of thousands of the collapsed chain's former employees. Opinions differ about whether the watchdog would be willing or able to offer such a guarantee to Sir Philip, with sources close to it suggesting that every case "would be evaluated on its merits". The regulator can also‎ seek information from or pursue anyone who they believe to be a connected party - which in BHS's case could lead it to Lady Green, the ultimate owner of Taveta, which owns Arcadia Group.
