  • Eurozone can't survive in current form, says PIMCO

    The eurozone is "untenable" in its current form and cannot survive unless countries are prepared to cede sovereignty and become a "United States of Europe", the world's biggest bond investor has warned. The Pacific Investment Management Company (PIMCO) said that while the bloc was likely to stay together in the medium term, with Greece remaining in the eurozone, the single currency could not survive if countries did not move closer together. Persistently weak growth in the eurozone had led to voter unrest and the rise of populist parties such as Podemos in Spain , Syriza in Greece , and Front National in France , said PIMCO managing directors Andrew Bosomworth and Mike Amey.

  • Kate and William's 'daughter' given direct right to throne in RADICAL new rules

    A radical shake-up which came into force after Australia brought its laws into line with the others, means that if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a girl she can no longer be superseded in the line of succession by a younger brother. Under the changes in the Succession to the Crown Act, a member of the Royal Family can now also marry a Roman Catholic and become monarch but Catholics are still banned from being King or Queen. The new law also replaces the outdated Royal Marriages Act 1772 and means that only the first six in line to the throne need the Queen's consent to marry - replacing a long-standing requirement affecting hundreds of distant royal relations who are descendants of George II. Princess Eugenie, who is seventh in line to the throne, no longer needs her grandmother's permission to wed, while Princess Beatrice still needs the Queen's consent - but only if she gets engaged before the arrival of William and Kate's second child, after which Beatrice drops down to seventh in line.

  • Isis war on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is huge PR own goal

    It is rare that you find similarities between the leafy boulevards and smart cafes of Jerusalem's Jaffa Street and the hectic, traffic-snarled chaos of Ramallah's Al Manara Square, but on El Clasico matchdays the flags in both Israel and Palestine are the same – blue, red and white. The one thing (perhaps the only thing) that Israelis and Palestinians of all stripes can agree on is a love for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and the few times a year that the Spanish titans meet are the times when the heavy and often ugly tension that so often hangs in the air in both cities is refreshingly absent. A love for Spanish football is something that applies throughout the Middle East and whether you are a Westerner, Arab, Kurd or Jew, you will be expected to come down on one side of the El Clasico divide, and be prepared to defend your choice forcefully and convincingly.

  • Crash co-pilot's personality 'serious lead' but not only one: French investigator

    The personality of a co-pilot suspected of deliberately flying a Germanwings passenger jet into a mountainside in the Alps is a "serious lead" in the inquiry but not the only one, a French investigator said Saturday. "We have a certain number of elements which allow us to make progress on this lead, which is a serious lead but which can't be the only one," police chief Jean-Pierre Michel told AFP in the western German city of Duesseldorf. The investigation so far has not turned up a "particular element" in the life of co-pilot Andreas Lubitz which could explain his alleged action in the ill-fated Airbus plane, he added.
