  • UK immigration hits record high, causing headache for Cameron

    By William James LONDON (Reuters) - Long-term net migration to Britain has hit a record high, underscoring the challenge Prime Minister David Cameron faces to dispel voter fears that immigrants are straining public services such as housing, hospitals and schools. As an island nation off northwest Europe, Britain is far from the frontline of the EU-wide crisis that has seen hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees pour into the bloc this year via countries like Italy, Greece and Hungary. The bigger problem for Cameron is his inability to limit immigration by European Union passport-holders, as freedom of movement is enshrined in the EU's founding treaties.

  • Dubai property slowdown due to tighter rules, not oil slump

    By Matt Smith DUBAI, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Dubai's tighter property rules aimed at preventing a housing bubble are the main cause of a slowdown in the emirate's real estate sector rather than a sustained drop in oil prices, industry experts said. Dubai has a low reliance on oil despite hydrocarbons providing three-quarters of the United Arab Emirates' consolidated revenue in 2014, according to credit agency Moody's. Abu Dhabi is home to the bulk of the UAE's energy reserves. "Dubai residential property sales have declined over the past three quarters, but the drop in oil prices is coincidental and the slowdown is more due to big price increases in 2013 - the market is adjusting to return to affordable levels," said Nicholas Maclean, managing director of consultants CBRE Middle East.
