The latest poll results show just how close the referendum will be

The latest poll by YouGov shows just how nail-bitingly close the result of the EU referendum is likely to be. The organisation’s latest figures show the Leave camp polling at 43% while Remain is trailing by just one point at 42% – the remainder is still undecided. Respondents were asked: “In a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, how would you vote?” The results will surely be welcomed by Brexiteers who appear to be gaining ground the closer we get to the referendum on June 23.

Manufacturers want tax breaks to tackle sickness absence

Britain’s leading manufacturing organisation has called for the government to provide tax breaks to tackle the UK’s chronic sickness absence problem, amid signs that its new Fit for Work scheme is failing to deliver as hoped.

Manufacturers pay £600m in sick pay each year, equivalent to £211 per employee, according to research by the EEF and Jelf, a private medical insurance broker.


VW set to unveil new strategy following diesel emissions scandal

Two years ago the chief executive of Volkswagen stood before 20,000 employees and said radical action was needed to achieve €5bn in annual savings by 2017. “We must now take action that is clear, effective and sometimes painful,” said Martin Winterkorn. But the painful cuts never made it past the discussion stage. Capital expenditure at the German carmaker jumped from €5.7bn in 2010 to almost €13bn last year. Labour costs rose 90 per cent over the same period, from under €20bn to more than €36bn.


Drivers still on their phones despite increase in fines

Fines for using mobile phones behind the wheel should be raised as high as £450 because some motorists are addicted to using apps while driving, ministers were told. The current standard fine of £100 and three penalty points is said to be no longer a deterrent at a time when the use of smartphone technology. The RAC says that the use of in-car apps has reached saturation point, with drivers using handheld devices to make calls, navigate, stream music and even check Facebook. Ministers are poised to increase the fixed penalty for mobile phone use from £100 to £150.

What the future of the petrol station looks like, from renewable energies to driverless cars – Quote from the PRA

Brian Madderson, chairman of the Petrol Retailers Association, explains that low interest rates and low inflation have helped to put a record number of new cars on Britain’s roads, with cheap oil driving a growth in traffic and fuel consumption. Road fuel demand grew by 1.1pc last year, beating expectations of “an irreversible decline in fuel volumes in the UK”, Madderson says, but petrol prices continued to fall by 2.7pc. “What all of the forecourts are trying to do, both independents and the large companies, is to develop alternative revenue streams to fuel.”

Fake reviving sounds are being pumped in to cars because modern engines are too quiet.  Manufacturers have developed new technology to make drivers think their cars are louder than they really are. Ford has gone to the US Patent and Trademark Office with their electronic method which they say helps drivers to change gears efficiently.
