The Vision of the Pension Playpen

I had rather lost touch with the progress of the CMA’s investigation into the activities of investment consultants , frankly it doesn’t seem to have been on anyone’s radar recently so the investment consultants have clearly done a good job defusing the bombs planted by the FCA’s Asset Management Market Study.

Prolonged periods of unemployment and short-time working in the shipyards meant that shipbuilders trying to weather the economic crisis offered low prices for new construction just to keep key employees and equipment in operation.

A FULL-scale conflict between the US and Iran could last FIFTY years and devastate the Middle East, one expert has claimed. As tensions in the region reach boiling point some now fear America and Russia could be dragged into a long-running conflict akin to the Korean War. Donald Trump has said he fears the ‘worst’ from Iran The 187th US Regimental Combat Team prepare for battle in Korea in 1951 One international security expert has warned the situation could end up being like the Korean conflict that was fought as a proxy battle between Washington and the Kremlin. Dr Paul Stott of the Henry Jackson Society -a foreign policy think tank – told Express.co.uk: “To an extent, the situation mirrors the Korean War. “Here there is some ideological unity between Russia and Iran – although not to the same degree.” The Korean War was sparked in 1950 when the Soviet-backed north was pushed into conflict by the Washington-backed south. Fighting finally came to an end three years later as the conflict -which left three million dead –  ended in a stalemate. However, the two countries never signed a peace treaty and are still technically at war leaving the region a potential timebomb. UNITED HATE OF AMERICA Dr Stott added that while Iran and Russia do not share a political ideology – they are united in their opposition of the US. He added: “It really alarms the US that Iran and Russia seem to have a good relationship.” Last night Iran warned the West against sparking an endless conflict in the middle east just as President Trump admitted he’s now primed for “the absolute worst” from Tehran. Foreign minister Mohammad Zarif insisted his country was not seeking confrontation even though its military seized the UK-flagged tanker Stena Impero in the Strait of Hormuz. London has described the seizure of the ship as “state piracy” and has called for a European-led naval mission to ensure safe shipping in the region. However,  Zarif said Iran had taken measures against the ship to implement international law, not in retaliation for the British capture of an Iranian tanker two weeks earlier in Gibraltar. “Starting a conflict is easy, ending it would be impossible,” he told reporters after a meeting with his Nicaraguan counterpart.
