  • Stocks rise after increase in consumer spendingEds: UPDATES throughout with more details. For global distribution. Eds: UPDATES throughout with more details. For global distribution. By STEPHEN BERNARD and TIM PARADIS, AP Business Writers By STEPHEN BERNARD and TIM PARADIS, AP Business Writers NEW YORK (AP) - Americans are more willing to spend, and that's making investors more optimistic about the economy. NEW YORK (AP) - Americans are more willing to spend, and that's making investors more optimistic about the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 46 points Monday and broader indexes also climbed after the Commerce Department said consumer spending rose for the fifth straight month in February.

  • The landscape of the West changed irrevocably yesterday as the Government made it the hub of the UK's nuclear future. The region is the only part of the country that will host two new nuclear power plants, ratcheting up to boiling point the already high tension between the opposing camps. Energy Secretary Chris Huhne gave the green light to eight new reactors, including ones at both Hinkley Point in Somerset and Oldbury in South Gloucestershire. His decision paves the way for a clash between delighted supporters of the projects, who say they will secure thousands of jobs and pump billions into the economy and appalled anti-nuclear campaigners.

  • AT THIS year's Pride celebrations in Trafalgar Square, Jake Heaton, 23, got up on the main stage in front of around 20,000 people and proposed to Joshua Dale-Skey, 25, his boyfriend of two years. Happily, Dale-Skey said yes. As Heaton, who lives in Highgate, says, they are "getting proper married!" The couple are pioneers. They will be among the first to have a same-sex wedding under the new laws that come into effect this summer. London is about to be taken over by gay wedding fever. The majority of civil partnerships since 2010 took place in this city. July may feel a long time away but celebrations are already being planned and it's predicted that the introduction of same-sex weddings could lead to 3,000 more unions on top of the 6,000 civil partnerships a year. The average wedding c...

The courts have so far failed to resolve the political deadlock resulting from the constitutionally invalid April election and the opposition is not inclined to resume its street protests against Thaksin until after the king's anniversary next month. However, the government lacks full powers and the situation could go on that way for some months. In the meantime, the economy is suffering. Finance minister Thanong Bidaya said last week that the political crisis is hurting confidence, disrupting the budget process and generally undermining economic prospects. He said that Q1 growth could be above 5% on the year but will slip below optimum levels as the year goes given the slide in confid...
