Putin On The Pressure - Uncle Volodya is Ready To Deal


 

Russia is able to start gas deliveries via the Nord Stream 2 link immediately after it gets regulatory approval, according to Vladimir Putin. 

The first pipe of Nord Stream 2 is filled with gas. If the German regulator allows supplies tomorrow, deliveries will begin the day after tomorrow,” the Russian president said at the annual Kremlin-backed Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi Thursday. The second of the route’s two lines could be ready in December, he said.

Unfortunately Europe will freeze this winter, as Germany and the EU won't authorise this anytime before January next year at the earliest!

As per Bloomberg:

"German regulators are currently reviewing the application of Nord Stream 2 AG for certification as an independent operator, but have said their initial decision could come only in January, after which the European Commission would also have to give the go-ahead."

Andrew Bailey - The Reluctant Hawk

 


Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England, has signalled that interest rates might rise.

However, his comments indicate he is not keen to raise them and doesn't think that raising them will actually help the situation.

Therefore, I have to ask, why make such comments in the first place?

Pensions - Minimum of £10,900 Needed

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) have stated that a single person will need post-tax annual income of £10,900 for a minimum standard of living in retirement.

That spending budget increases to £16,700 for a couple.

Here is the assessment link.

Nigel Peaple, director of policy and advocacy at the PLSA is quoted by the BBC:

"The pandemic has emphasised the importance of economic security as well as social and cultural participation in retirement.

We hope the updated standards will encourage people to think about whether they are saving enough for the retirement lifestyle they want and, in particular, whether they are making the most of the employer contributions on offer in their workplace pension."

The calculations for retirement living standards are pitched at three different levels - minimum, moderate and comfortable - and are developed and maintained independently by the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University.

The assessment is intended as a guide for those planning their retirement savings. Housing costs are not included on the assumption that most pensioners have paid off mortgages, although the PLSA said that decision would be kept under review.

The minimum retirement living standard covers a typical retiree's basic needs plus enough for some social activities, such as a week of holiday in the UK, eating out once a month, but not including running a car.

The estimate of an annual budget for the minimum standard has risen since 2019 by £700 for a single person, and by £1,000 for a couple.

The total requirement would generally be made up of a full state pension of £9,339 per year, as well as some workplace pension savings.

The moderate retirement living standard includes a two-week holiday in Europe and more frequent eating out.

This was assessed to require a budget of £20,800 for a single person, £600 higher than two years ago, and £30,600 for a couple, up £1,500.

The annual budget needed for a comfortable retirement living standard has increased since 2019 by £600 to £33,600 for one person and £2,200 to £49,700 for a couple.

This covered items such as regular beauty treatments, theatre trips, and annual maintenance and servicing of a burglar alarm. 

The figures may seem reasonable. However, they ignore that fact taht as you get older your lifestyle changes. Those in their 80's are less likely to be changing their cars every so often, upgrading their kitchens or going out quite so much. They will, though, be more likely to spend money on care.

The Global Energy Crisis


 

The British media, in their desperation to stir the shit, would have us believe that the ongoing rises in energy prices are down to a combination of Brexit and Boris.

Yet, cast your eyes abroad and you can see that the problem is global.

For why?

A number of reasons, including:

- China buying large amounts of LNG

- China cutting back on its coal production (green policies and flooding) 

- Russia playing silly buggers with gas supplies because of its long running dispute with the EU over Nord Stream 2 and Europe not wanting long term contract with Gazprom

- Covid screwing with supply chains 

- The rush to go Green, without having the necessary capacity etc.

Putin Pressure on Europe - Uncle Volodya Offers Terms


 

Yesterday, in a volatile day of trading, wholesale gas prices across the continent surged amid intensifying fears of a winter energy shortage.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said on Wednesday at a meeting chaired by Putin, that certification of the Nord Stream 2 undersea gas pipeline, which expects clearance from a Germany's regulator, could cool soaring European gas prices.

Prices have spiked in response to a recovery in demand, particularly from Asia, when storage levels are low.

European benchmark Dutch wholesale gas for November has jumped almost eightfold since the start of the year and reached an all-time high of over 150 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) in the early hours of Wednesday.

Putin told the meeting that Europe was wrong to reduce the share of long-term deals in natural gas trade in favour of the spot market instead, where prices have surged.

"We talked to the European Commission's previous lineup, and all its activity was aimed at phasing out of so-called long-term contracts.

It was aimed at transition to spot gas trade. And as it turned out, it has become obvious today, that this practice is a mistake."

Uncle Volodya stated that Russia is prepared to stabilise the market, and that Moscow is ready to discuss new long-term contracts for gas sales to European consumers.
