Rupert Murdoch says Scottish self rule inevitable 'in next few years'
06:21 PM, 04.26.2015

Rupert Murdoch, Executive Chairman News Corp and Chairman and CEO 21st Century Fox speaks at the WSJD Live conference in Laguna BeachBy Guy Faulconbridge LONDON (Reuters) - Scotland is likely to win self rule in the next few years while the economic divide between the international powerhouse of London and the rest of the United Kingdom will deepen, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch said on Sunday. Murdoch, whose global media interests stretch from movies to newspapers that claim to turn elections, visited Scotland on the eve of the Sept. 18 independence referendum last year and praised the country of 5 million people for its lively debate. Scots rejected independence in that referendum, but the Scottish National Party is now forecast to win the majority of Scotland's seats in the United Kingdom's May 7 election, potentially making it the third largest party in Westminster. "Scots may be crazy or not wanting self rule, but who can deny right of self determination?" Murdoch, 84, wrote on his Twitter feed.


 
Labour pledges to scrap stamp duty for first-time home buyers
06:18 PM, 04.26.2015

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Ed Miliband gestures at an election campaign event in north London(Reuters) - Labour Party will announce a plan on Monday to scrap the stamp duty for first-time home buyers and give them the right to buy up to half of new homes built locally, as the party lays out its plan to tackle the country's housing crisis ahead of next month's parliamentary election. Labour leader Ed Miliband will lay out the proposal to cut the stamp duty to zero for first-time buyers of homes worth up to 300,000 pounds, which would help those buyers save as much as 5,000 pounds, the Labour Party said on its website. With less than two weeks to go before the May 7 election, most opinion polls have shown voters fairly evenly split between the left-wing Labour Party and the ruling centre-right Conservatives - Britain's two main political parties - meaning neither is likely to win enough seats to hold a clear parliamentary majority. The Labour Party also proposes to stop foreign buyers from buying properties before local buyers get a chance to look at them by ensuring they are advertised in local areas, increasing taxes paid by foreign buyers and levying council tax for empty homes.
