2. Unemployment ‘three times higher’. The real unemployment rate in the UK may be nearly three times higher than official figures according to a new report by the thinktank Centre for Cities. While the official rate is 3.7%, this triples to 12.1% when accounting for the three million people who have left the workforce “involuntarily”. These economically inactive people may be those “who stop looking for a job if they are discouraged, believe there are no jobs or struggle to work because of health issues”. Of the ten places with the highest hidden unemployment rates, nine are in the North of England, with one in Wales. The main reasons for this geographical disparity are health, skill levels and the availability of jobs, according to the thinktank. The Telegraph

Japan has the world’s most powerful passport for the 5th year in a row. Holders can visit 193 out of 227 global destinations visa-free. South Korea and Singapore are tied in 2nd place on the index, with a visa-free/visa-on-arrival score of 192. Germany and Spain are joint 3rd, with visa-free access to 190 destinations. The UK and the US remain in 6th and 7th places, with scores of 187 and 186. They jointly held the top slot in 2014, but the Henley rankings say it appears unlikely that either will ever reach 1st place again. CNBC

The idea has been trialled by London North Eastern Railways since 2020. The new effort to drive change comes as “the government faces criticisms for its failure to resolve months of strikes on the railways that have affected commuters and leisure travellers alike”.
