Is the EU trying to undermine the City over Brexit? | Nils Pratley 27 Jun 2:33pm Is the EU trying to undermine the City over Brexit? | Nils Pratley
Or does EBA truly believe it’s up to banks and insurers to prepare themselves for all outcomes? The Bank of England has provided a useful reminder that failure to make proper preparations for Brexit is not only a British curse. Threadneedle Street’s language was polite but do not doubt UK regulators’ deep frustration that the European Union hasn’t taken seemingly simple steps to ensure that trillions of pounds-worth of insurance and derivatives contracts don’t explode on day one. The Bank did its part six months ago when it set out plans, now formalised by the Treasury, to allow European banks and insurers to maintain their UK operations under current rules after Brexit. It was a commonsense safeguard against a “hard” or disorderly Brexit and the Bank was within its rights to expect its move to be copied. Guaranteeing financial stability across Europe should not be contentious territory.

Red alert: UK farmers warn of soft fruit shortage 27 May 3:00am Red alert: UK farmers warn of soft fruit shortage
Growers fear strawberries will be left to rot as Europe’s migrant workers stay away – but it’s not just a Brexit issue Like many things considered quintessentially English, the humble strawberry is an immigrant. The first garden variety was grown in France in the 18th century, the result of cross-pollinating strawberries from North and South America. Those luscious fruits you buy today in the supermarket? A marriage of European and A merican strains. It was only thanks to the penchant of Thomas Wolsey, Henry VIII’s Lord Chancellor, for serving wild strawberries with cream, that the fruit assumed totemic importance in the English psyche, never more so than during Wimbledon fortnight when tennis fans consume more than 34,000 kilos of the stuff.

Two years after the Brexit vote, Project Fear may be coming true 27 May 2:00am Two years after the Brexit vote, Project Fear may be coming true
Mark Carney’s recent warning about a Leave-affected economy is being ignored. That is unfortunate, because it’s importantOne of the features of the Brexit vote is that it shows economics doesn’t matter very much. At least not to the 52% who voted to leave the European Union, and who the pollsters tell us still largely feel as they did on 23 June 2016. That seems strange when the debate about Scottish independence focused for much of the time on the possible economic gains and losses. But there was no doubting, when the Brexit votes were counted, that

‘Ridiculously complex’: Top financier blasts UK’s biggest fund 26 May 2:00am ‘Ridiculously complex’: Top financier blasts UK’s biggest fund
A Standard Life fund that holds nearly £20bn of Britons’ cash should not have been sold to the public, says Alan MillerIt’s the biggest single stock market fund in Britain, holding nearly £20bn of small investors’ cash. Yet while the FTSE 100 has soared, hitting a record high this week, the fund, managed by Standard Life, has made nothing for investors for five years. Now Alan Miller, husband of anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller and a senior figure in the fund management industry, is calling it “potentially one of the greatest mis-selling scandals in the UK”. The fund is called Standard Life Global Absolute Return Strategies (Gars). It was launched in 2006 with a golden promise – a hedge fund for the masses that would make 5% a year more than savers would get from bank accounts and, crucially, without the usual volatility of the stock market.
