In his first major speech as shadow chancellor, Johnson welcomed the coalition’s plan for a £2.5bn levy on banks, but said they should make an even “greater contribution”. He added: “In terms of scale, the £3.5bn bill from Alistair Darling’s bonus tax was absorbed with ease last year. In a time of rising profits they should be asked to maintain that scale of contribution alongside the existing levy proposal.”The Institute of Directors (IoD) hit out at the plans, insisting they would force banks to consider relocating overseas. “The chances of banking business disappearing overseas would increase significantly if the bank levy was increased by another £3.5bn,” a spokesperson for the IoD said.Mark Littlewood, director general of the Institute of Economic Affairs, also warned that “bankers, stockbrokers and hedge fund managers will continue to leave London if the tax burden becomes uncompetitive”.The Tories were quick to point out that the bonus tax implemented by Darling was only ever meant to be a “one-off” measure. They also claimed Johnson recently said a second levy would need international agreement, something which would be hard to achieve.

An increase to the price of English and Scottish football data in the wake of Genius Sports Group’s exclusive partnership with Football DataCo (FDC) is squeezing operators’ already tight margins further.Multiple sources have confirmed to iGamingBusiness.com that the price of data from the Premier League, English Football League and Scottish Professional Football League has been raised to between 7.5% and 15% of gross gaming revenue.The 15% GGR fee is only for the largest operators, and that price is capped after a certain threshold. However, bookmakers told iGB that this cap only benefits top-tier businesses, leaving smaller companies facing a significant increase in costs.In May this year, Genius Sports secured a landmark deal with FDC, granting it exclusive rights to collect, license and distribute live data from the UK’s leading football competitions. The agreement was described by Genius Sports chief executive Mark Locke as “transformational” for the business. However industry sources iGB spoke to offered contrasting views on the success of the agreement to date. While some suggested it was performing well commercially, others suggested higher prices would deter smaller businesses from striking supply deals.One person, speaking on the condition of anonymity, suggested a deal with at least one major operator was close being announced.Genius was unwilling to comment on the matter at this time.It is worth noting that while other suppliers charge significantly less – Sportradar is reportedly charging 1.5% of GGR for access to its National Football League data feeds – the FDC data covers eight professional football leagues, rather than one. The decision to award Genius Sports exclusive rights to the FDC data has proved controversial, especially as the agreement does not any include a provision for sub-licensing agreements. Sportradar, which also refused to comment on the matter, previously claimed that the lack of a sub-licensing provision infringes on European Union and UK competition law.Genius Sports, however, maintains that it will consider sub-licensing the scouting rights, but is currently focused on securing agreements with operators.

Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Legal Regulation Marketing Marketing regulation Content marketing Sweden’s Ministry of Finance has proposed changes to the way gambling is advertised within the country, with new rules set to come into effect in July 2022 to require “special moderation”, as is already required in alcohol ads. This isn’t the first time that BOS has been critical of Ministry of Finance proposals, having objected to parts of the Gambling Market Inquiry and a proposed extension of the country’s deposit cap for gaming earlier this year. 15th June 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui Marketing regulation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter BOS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt said: “Swedish-licensed gambling operators have since a peak in 2018-2019 halved their advertising purchases. I do not understand how low the investments in marketing must be for the government to be satisfied. Sweden proposes “special moderation” rule to treat gambling ads like alcohol Instead, gambling would be marketed similarly to how alcohol is in Sweden, whereby the marketing “must not be intrusive, include outreach or urge people to use alcohol”. The Ministry of Finance added that the requirement for special moderation applies to the medium in which ads are displayed, the content and design of the advertising and any other marketing methods. Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden In addition, the detail, typography and layout “must be assessed in the light of the requirement for special moderation”. Tags: BOS Branschföreningen för Onlinespel The amendments have been put out for consultation, with responses due by 14 October. The new proposals have been rejected by Sweden’s online operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespe (BOS). Regulator Spelinspektionen, however, previously praised the proposal in a consultation response. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The amendments to the gambling act call for “special moderation” in ads, with the intention of classing gambling similarly to alcohol due to addiction risks. Currently, law simply calls for “moderation”. “Gaming advertising from Swedish licensed gambling companies fulfills an important function for a safe and secure gaming market. Advertising strengthens the motivation for gambling consumers to choose Swedish-licensed gambling instead of the alarmingly high proportion of unlicensed gaming. “Already today, every fourth gambling krona leaks out of the licensing system when it comes to online casino, and with that, the strong consumer protection also sips away.” First suggested in Sweden’s Gambling Market Inquiry, the proposal suggests that gambling marketing should be exempt from the Freedom of Expression act, as it contains a commercial element which means it should be regulated by ordinary law.

I’ve always followed a rule of not buying shares in companies with which I have some sort of emotional or personal attachment, because it can make it hard to see the downsides and form an objective opinion.Sometimes that’s served me well, but in 2019 it contributed to my ignoring Greggs (LSE: GRG), whose shares have climbed by 83% over the year. I kept away because I get my lunch from the high street bakery most days of the week, and my view is perhaps biased.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…TastyGreggs has managed to get its name well known during the year through some good PR (though, perhaps ironically, I think its famous vegan sausage rolls are horrible), and that must have helped attract investor attention. That, and the past few years of phenomenal earnings progress, which many a high-tech growth company can only hope to match.If forecasts for 2019 come good, we’ll have seen a 97% EPS rise over five years, and the dividend will have grown by 130% — though that does include a 35p per share special dividend. The yield is low, however, at around 2%.Greggs’ forecasts look very reliable to me, after the firm upped its profit guidance in November for the fourth time in the year.The only downside I see is the valuation of the shares, which are on a P/E of 26.6. In my experience, every company going through a growth phase like this suffers a share price fall when that spell comes to an end. But I’ve no reason to think that will happen in 2020.SoftTalking of soaring growth stocks that don’t come from the usual technology sources, shares in furnishings retailer Dunelm Group (LSE: DNLM) have done even better this year than Greggs, with a rise of 110%. That has come mostly in December, though, as they were only up around 50% at the end of November.It was all down to a 5 December update, when the company announced the successful transition of all of its customers to its new digital platform (so maybe there is a technology angle after all) without any impact on overall performance. Full-year guidance was lifted too, and the shares soared — and they’ve gained further after the election result.In addition to share price gains, Dunelm has been lifting its dividend and its strong cash generation allowed for a special dividend of 32p per share.My problem is I that I think there’s too much exuberance here, with Dunelm not coming close to Greggs’ earnings rises. By year-end at June 2020, forecasts suggest an EPS improvement of a very modest 11% in five years, and I think we’d need something better than that in 2020 to justify a forward P/E of 22.3.SteepMy Fool colleague Roland Head spotted Dunelm’s potential early in the year, but at today’s price he “wouldn’t rush to buy” the shares. He believes Dunelm deserves a premium rating, and I agree — but I think today’s is a bit too premium.I don’t expect any big crash in 2020, but I can’t foresee any significant rise either — and I think we might even see a modest price consolidation.

“Our future, based upon long term planning around the right people, is very exciting indeed.” “When I asked him to join the coaching team in Wales I knew the level of professionalism and skill he would bring with him and that has proved to be the case.“He is already an accomplished coach, but I know the experience and opportunities he will have in the years ahead will improve him even more.“There is a lot of hard work ahead, but the coaches around me have grown in stature over our time together and the continuity we now look forward to will help us achieve our aims.“At this level we are often criticised if our performance doesn’t meet outside expectations, but the biggest endorsement I can give of Rob is that, after the Lions experience in 2009, a high number of players commented to me that he was the best backs coach they had worked with, which speaks volumes.”Howley signed his new contract for Wales following close discussion with Warren Gatland and detailed negotiations with the Group Chief Executive of the Welsh Rugby Union, Roger Lewis.Lewis said: “I am delighted Rob has decided to commit his coaching future to Wales through to the summer of 2016 at least.“I viewed it as vitally important for us to retain a coach of his stature in an agreement which ensured Wales achieved coaching continuity after the Rugby World Cup in 2015.“Moreover Rob has also agreed to work with Joe Lydon our Head of Rugby to assist in the development of our National Academy age grade teams.“We know we now have in place, under Warren Gatland, a coaching line up which is the envy of the rugby world and there will be intense pressure from other nations for their services when the opportunity arises.“That is right and proper, but the systems and structures the WRU have put in place must be retained and developed for the benefit of Welsh rugby as whole.“Rob is a good manand a determined and talented coach who I know will take every opportunity to develop and expand his skills in the years ahead.“We have created an environment here in Wales which helps players and coaches achieve their full potential. We will ensure those systems and structures remain robust and continue to develop. “This has been achieved by the sound financial management of the WRU.“With Warren and his coaching team of Rob, Shaun Edwards, Neil Jenkins and Robin McBryde now in place we can look forward to some exciting and engaging rugby ahead from the national team.“I must also pay fulsome tribute to the unsung heroes of the coaching team Prav Mathema, Adam Beard and Rhys Long. Their contribution this year to Welsh rugby has been immense. Most importantly they also will advise on the development of our National Academy.

(Photo by Phil Walter/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Wales Assistant Coach Rob Howley has agreed a new contract with the Welsh Rugby Union which will ensure he continues at the helm of the senior team for at least a full season after the next Rugby World Cup in 2015.The agreement means that Howley is assured to represent a continuation of the current coaching regime policies until the middle of 2016.It is a move which removes the potential for a scenario in which all currently contracted coaching staff could theoretically decide to move from Wales at the same time following the next Rugby World Cup.It is currently commonplace throughout rugby for senior coaches to be contracted up to and including Rugby World Cup competitions.Howley is a key member of Warren Gatland’s coaching team and has been his Assistant Coach in charge of attack since 2008.He played for Bridgend and Cardiff winning 59 caps for Wales, 22 as captain before joining London Wasps where he completed his playing career.Howley also earned selection for two British & Irish Lions tours to South Africa in 1997 and Australia in 2001 where he won two Test caps.He started his coaching career at Wasps under Warren Gatland before moving to Cardiff Blues from where he was recruited to the Wales coaching line up.He said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I have spent with the national team so far so I am delighted that work can now continueat least until 2016.“As a coaching team we have achieved a lot of our aims in recent years but there are still a lot of exciting and challenging opportunities ahead.“We have the right structures and systems in place, a team brimful of young talent alongside some valuable experience and a mouth watering fixture schedule.“I am personally ambitious to become the best coach I possibly can be and it is fantastic for me to be able to continue to advance my skills here in Wales with the Welsh team.“As a coach I understand the importance of continuity and I know the strengths and weaknesses of our players and the youngsters who will be challenging for selection in the near future.“I want to spend the next few years focused on Welsh success and I am determined to develop my own repertoire of skills so I can make a valid and worthwhile to rugby in Wales.“I am a proud Welshman and anyone who works with me knows I want nothing more that success for Wales.“The Rugby World Cup proved to us as a coaching team that we are heading in the right direction and that just inspires me for the future.”Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland, said: “I am delighted that Rob will be working with us through until the next Rugby World Cup and will be continuing that work on into 2016.

For 3 generations, 2 cats and 1 dog living under one roof was a bit tight, so the grandparents decided to use a leftover corner from their property to get their own roof, building a house attached to the old one for themselves and their pets in this neighborhood adjacent the City of Zurich. Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingThe material of the house was clear from the beginning, a wood timber construction, but it took a while to realize what was needed. This process of reducing and loosing ballast while keeping the building costs within a narrow range was reflected also in the project. Due to the size of the plot, a vertical house was chosen. Knowing that with age stairs could become a challenge, big enough for safety and confort but small enough to fit in the room, the design of the stairs became crucial: a fine minimalist metal staircase with stainless steel net for protection was the answer. Around the stairs the house developed: the entry is on the street level, which also doubles as a laundry room, with the guest bath that doubles as a dog shower and house cats have their own access to the cellar for their needs. Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingOn the ground floor, the living room can be fully opened up with foldable glass panels to the garden in the south. This brings the garden into the house, giving a roomy sense of openness despite the size. For the same reason kitchen and dining room has been kept to a minimum. Strategically placed vertical windows still let you see the street and not feel isolated. Save this picture!SectionOn the second floor, facing the airy stair room, one bathroom and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a secret door leading direct to the granddaughters’ room, making babysitting very easy. Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingFinding a balance between white clean minimalism and the countryside rustic lead to the choice of material and color of the wood floor, and the material and color of the facade, that fit the re-disigned driveway paved with gravel. The patch of the new garden was kept very rustic and natural as well with stones and gravel, reducing maintenance and giving a new living space to native plants and animals.
