Barclays’ chairman leaves on Halloween: but don’t fear for him

Category : Business

Marcus Agius is still on £750,000 a year and will get an office

Marcus Agius is to bow out as chairman of Barclays on 31 October – the same day that the bank is expected to report a loss following the shock £700m increase in its provision for payment protection insurance.

He is falling on his sword for the £290m Libor-rigging fine but his pain is being cushioned. Agius is being handed an office in the bank’s upmarket townhouse in Mayfair and will continue to receive his £750,000-a-year salary. He resigned on 2 July and was on six months’ notice – so presumably these benefits will cease next February. Still, it’s better than an instant blast of the real world.

Toward 2015 — calling for a Nuclear Weapons Convention

Category : World News

As a preparatory meeting for the 2015 Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference opens in Vienna on April 30, regional tensions are building — in the Middle East with Iran’s nuclear development and in Northeast Asia with North Korea’s attempt to launch a long-range rocket.
More than 40 years after the NPT entered into force in 1970, the proliferation of nuclear weapons has yet to cease. In light of this reality, I believe that, ultimately, the only viable solution is to return to the original vision stated in the preamble of the NPT: “… the liquidation of all their existing stockpiles, and the elimination from national arsenals of nuclear weapons and the means of their delivery.”
