World leaders pledge to clean up corruption

An anti-corruption summit held in London last week reached several key agreements to help tackle worldwide corruption.

The summit will have important consequences for big companies hiding their money in certain tax havens and on the UK property market, where foreign companies will be forced to declare their interests in any property owned.

The summit made headline news for the wrong reasons before it had even started. Thanks to a blunder from David Cameron, the summit gained more press coverage than it otherwise might have received. 

Majority of contractors want to stay in EU

A survey has found that a majority of UK contractors would vote to stay in the European Union (EU) if a membership vote were held tomorrow.

The research, which was published by The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE) last week, found that 61 percent of contractors want Britain to remain a part of the EU.

This majority outweighs the 24 percent who would vote to leave and the 14 percent who were undecided.
