The Russian announcement—seen in the west as a piece of TRANSPARENT [?] BLACKMAIL.
copy editor STAT!
came hours after the G7 finance ministers pressed ahead with an elaborate plan, first outlined by the US at the G7 leaders summit in June, to put a [price] cap on [EU]  Russian ["embargo"] oil prices.
An audacious piece of [G7] market intervention, the plan retains many inherent flaws. Underwriters claim they do not know the price of the ["Russian-origin"] oil that the ship they have insured will sell.

Despite the work since the G7, no target price has been agreed and the noises out of the London insurance industry are not enthusiastic. But the plan does now have the enthusiastic endorsement of [] UK Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi and, more importantly[,] US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. But [G7 racketeering] remains a long-term plan on a drawing board.

By contrast, PUTIN already has powerful destructive levers 9/10 the law at his disposal.

Prem Sikka | Visiting pawnbrokers showed me just how much people are struggling during the cost of living crisis, 2 Sep
The cold economic data does not even begin to tell the human stories behind the numbers. So, I decided to visit a few pawnshops in South East England to see what is happening. I spoke to the shop managers, and I stood outside to speak to people coming into the shops.

People go to pawnshops to pledge items of value and get some cash. Some are reasonably well-off and need immediate cash, but don't have the kind of security that a bank would accept. So they turn to pawnbrokers. Many can't get bank loans and overdrafts because of low income or paucity of acceptable collateral.

Depending upon the amounts and duration of the loan or agreement, the rate of interest varies. One pawnbroker gave an example - "Amount of credit £100; duration of agreement 6 months; rate of interest 119.9% (fixed) p.a. Total amount payable: £159.94 in one instalment", and another mentioned a rate of 155.8 %APR. The Bank of England base rate is 1.75%. Each hike in the base rate has a knock-on effect on the interest rate charged by pawnbrokers. ...

US Treasury | Treasury Targets Additional Facilitators of Russia's Aggression in Ukraine, 15 Sep central booking
Today, as part of its continued response to Russia's HORRIFIC war of aggression against Ukraine, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated 22 individuals and 2 entities, including   multiple individuals who have furthered the Government of the Russian Federation's (GoR) objectives in Ukraine, both prior to and during Russia's further invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Also included among those being designated is Task Force Rusich, a neo-Nazi < eyebrow > paramilitary group that has participated in combat alongside Russia's military in Ukraine, as well as two of its senior leaders.

Today's action is being taken in coordination with those taken by the U.S. Department of Commerce, which is imposing additional export control measures to further align with partners and allies, as well as by the U.S. Department of State, which is targeting Russia's defense and high-technology industries, as well as proxy authorities. ...

In response to Russia's February 2022 further invasion of Ukraine, the United States and an international coalition of allies and partners took swift action to substantially sever Russia's access to the world's financial infrastructure. In response, Russia has scrambled to find new ways to process payments and conduct transactions. Directly and indirectly, Russia's financial technocrats have supported the Kremlin's unprovoked war. Today's designations target those efforts. OFAC is also publishing a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) to provide additional guidance on the heightened risk of facilitating Russia's efforts to evade sanctions through the ["]expanded use["] of the National Payment Card System (NSPK) or the Mir National Payment System, given the broad sanctions imposed on Russia's financial system this year.
Treasury is also taking additional action to cut off Russia's access to a key service from U.S. companies. Today, OFAC issued a determination pursuant to E.O. 14071 prohibiting the exportation, re[-]exportation, sale, or supply, directly or indirectly [CHIP 4 Indo-Pac supply chain?], from the United States, or by a United States person, wherever located, of quantum computing services to any person located in the Russian Federation.
In parallel with this action, OFAC has identified the quantum computing sector < eyebrow > of the Russian Federation economy pursuant to E.O. 14024. This determination allows for sanctions to be imposed on any individual or entity determined to operate or have operated in this sector of the Russian Federation economy and, thereby, expands the United States' ability to swiftly impose additional economic costs on Russia for its WAR OF CHOICE in Ukraine....

Daily Sabah | Russia hides details, but says Mir bank cards still work in Türkiye, 22 Sep
Russia's central bank vowed last week to expand the number of countries that accept its Mir cards, despite new U.S. sanctions targeting people and entities accused of helping Moscow skirt financial sanctions.

Denizbank and İşbank, two private lenders in Türkiye, a leading destination for Russian travelers < wipes tears >, suspended the use of Mir after Washington included NSPK head Vladimir Komlev in its sanctions program, imposed in response to Russia's military campaign in Ukraine.

But Komlev told a banking forum in Kazan: "We are not considering the option of completely abandoning the use of Mir cards abroad ... The level of concern and noise ... is quite over the top."

< wipe tears >
"The Americans have always said that sanctions apply to those areas of financial activity where the dollar is involved. The Mir card does not use the dollar and it is does not fall under U.S. sanctions policy by any criteria.

"The U.S. has not even imposed sanctions on Mir cards ... but we see that countries friendly to us are abandoning this instrument that we were planning to develop," [VTB Bank CEO Andrei Kostin]said, referring to Türkiye, Vietnam[,] and Kazakhstan.

Beyond Türkiye, the cards are currently only accepted in a few countries such as Cuba, South Korea, Vietnam[,] and a handful of former Soviet republics.

... She became queen in 1952. This was a time when Britain was still an empire, Britain still had huge numbers of imperial possessions. It was a very homogeneous society. It was very socially disciplined. It was very christian. It was extremely honest. I mean, corruption was almost unheard of in British public life at that time. Where the leadership, people who occupied positions of authority, did so with a very strong sense of responsibility. I mean, this is something that developed over a long time, hadn't always existed, but in 1952 people in positions of authority did feel responsible for, you know, what happened and what they did.

There's a very famous case around the time when the queen became queen in 1952 when a British minister went to the House of Commons, said something in complete good faith. He gave a report to the House of Commons about something his ministry had done which was in complete good faith. It then turned out that it was wrong, and the House of Commons had been misled, and that minister felt obliged to resign. He decided that because he said something to the House of Commons that wasn't true, he felt that he had to resign. Well, that is inconceivable today. The queen in a kind of a way, she remained that. She continued [GESTICUALTING] to follow the ethos of the world that Britain, the kind of Britain, that she became queen of in 1952. She never evolved, if you like, out of it....

[...]One anti-royalist protester who got arrested on Sunday was close to a remembrance ceremony at Mercat Cross in Edinburgh, by St Giles' Cathedral, where the Queen's coffin will lie on Monday.
Symon Hill, 45, was also arrested for shouting "who elected him?" during a reading of a proclamation in Oxford, England on Sunday. ...Speaking to The Guardian, Hill said: "I don't think I've ever seen anyone arrested on such threadbare grounds, let alone experienced it myself.

oh noooooes, BoJo lied to the aged good, sweet queen Lilbet who granted his request to dissolve parliament!

41.Two fundamental principles of our constitutional law  are relevant to the present case. The  first is the principle of Parliamentary sovereignty: that laws enacted by the Crown in Parliament are the supreme form of law in our legal system, with which everyone, including the Government, must comply. However, the effect which the courts have given to Parliamentary sovereignty is not  confined to recognising the status of the legislation enacted by the Crown in Parliament as our highest form of law.
42.The sovereignty  of Parliament would, however, be undermined as the foundational principle of our constitution if the executive could, through the use of the prerogative, prevent Parliament from exercising its legislative authority for as long as it pleased. That, however, would be the position if there was no legal limit upon the power to prorogue Parliament (subject to a few exceptional circumstances in which, under statute, Parliament can meet while it stands  prorogued). An unlimited power of prorogation would therefore be incompatible with the legal principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.

THE rule of Charles III may weaken Scots' commitment to the Union, according to the royal biographer Clive Irving.

"The Queen held everything ­together," he said. "Having been on the throne for so long, she ­represented a degree and continuity that can't be replicated."

The author of The Last Queen also predicted the SNP's current ­commitment to the monarchy will "expire" with the Queen's death, ­according to Time Magazine.

Recent polls have found that only 52% of Scots think Charles will be a good king, compared with 75% who thought the Queen performed her role well.

They also saddled him with an unpopular name : the first was executed; the second teed up the Glorious Revolution which curtailed royal power.

So the king-in-waiting got his revenge on the world by naming his sons William (II being that Orange fellow) and Henry (the ninth?)

"By tradition, the person who succeeds the queen must be in Kenya when the queen dies. Everybody knows Steve was in Kenya and all the other people trying to snatch away the seat from him were not in Kenya.

DW | UN report: Venezuela committing crimes against humanity to crush opposition, 21 Sep
In an effort to quash political opposition in the beleaguered Latin American country.

Complied by the UN's Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the report outlines the extensive use of arbitrary arrest and torture in Venezuela since 2014.

Findings were based on interviews with 471 victims, their families and their legal representatives, as well as another 50 individuals who worked for Venezuela's General Office of Military Counterintelligence (DGCIM), National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), and other government entities.
Maduro personally involved in abuses

The report clearly condemns President Maduro's hands-on role in the well-organized system designed to crush dissent. It also rebukes Venezuelan authorities for failing to hold abusers accountable.

"The Venezuelan authorities have failed to hold perpetrators to account and provide reparations to victims in a context where judicial reforms announced from 2021 have failed to address the justice system's lack of independence and impartiality," the UN mission said.
Tuesday's report was the third published on Venezuela to date. The mission is scheduled to share its findings with the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in the coming weeks.

Bloomberg | UK Becomes Net Electricity Exporter (4:46 p.m.), 29 Sep
The UK exported more power than it imported during the second quarter of the year for the first time since 2010. The volume both of electricity and gas leaving the UK jumped nearly 600% in the three months to June this year compared to the previous year, according to UK government data.

It's unclear whether such high volumes of exports can be sustained. There's likely to be rising demand within the UK as it gets dark and cold, meaning some flows out of the country may have to be curtailed when supplies get tight.
