The acquisition, and integration of Yorkshire Courier and Couriers in Yorkshire has been accomplished smoothly and business has increased for the Yorkshire Courier. The M1 Shuttle [75p a mile single pallet rate] was a phenomenal success from the day it was launched, and is currently well over subscribed.

Yorkshire Courier takes on some of the contracts of M1 Shuttle. Figures show that at the rate the M1 Shuttle is growing, by next year, the back office management cost would impact dramatically on the profitability of the M1 Shuttle. Change is being driven by client demand.

Cameron and Hunt lose out to the public

 Do you remember when the whole of Parliament was asking that the takeover of BSkyB be referred back to the Competition Commission, on the question of the corporate governance of News international as more and more revelation were exposed, 2 people who opposed the idea they were the Prime minister David Cameron and the Culture secretary Mr Jeremy Hunt, who continually insisted they had done everything by the law. It had been thought that it was on track to be approved, after the government said it was going to accept assurances that Sky News would be spun off as a separate company - rather than refer it to the Competition Commission.
Ed Milliband with the backing of Nick Clegg forced a vote, and Cameron and Hunt had to conceded to the will of Parliament and the will of the public, and refer it back to the Competition Commission. In addition they forced the PM into setting up a select committee hearing at which Rebekah Brooks and the Murdocks would be questioned.
We Reported on the 24th December 2010, that Vince Cable said that he had declared war on Richard Murdock over the purchase of BSkyB, apparently he had discovered a legal precedent which would stop the deal, hence the terminology ‘ declared war’.
And Transport minister Norman Baker said: "We've stopped Murdoch taking over BSkyB, or referred it to the competition authorities.”That would have never happened under the Tories. They would have just said, 'Here you are Mr Murdoch, how much do you want?'"

Phone Hacking Scandal

 

Rebekah Brooks has resigned ahead of the Select Committee hearing, she had admitted at a previous Select committee hearing that the NoW had paid police for information. The police arrested her on Sunday and questioned her for 9 hours.
 In the states where the FBI are investigating hacking claims, Mr Hinton, chief executive of the media group's Dow Jones, said that he was "ignorant of what apparently happened" but felt it was proper for him to resign.
He is most senior executive to leave the conglomerate, Mr Hinton was previously head of News International from 1995 to 2007 and has worked with Rupert Murdoch for 52 years.
It is expected that James Murdock will be the next one to resign; he has admitted signing cheques for police payments.
With over 150 subsidiaries already and the use of tax havens, News Corporation  pays only 20 per cent corporate tax in the US as opposed to the normal 35 per cent. The Economist reported in 1999 that since 1987, News International had paid no net corporation tax in the UK on £1.4bn profits. It has been rumoured that Rupert Murdock may resign, and take up the position as non executive President of News Corporation, in order to get control the whole of BSyB, and it’s “free of UK tax” status.
