Tesla boss has rejected nuclear claims 

Billionaire Elon Musk denies report he spoke to Russian President Putin about the use of nuclear weapons.

Political scientist Ian Bremmer sparked headlines when he claimed that, “Elon Musk told me he had spoken with Putin and the Kremlin directly about Ukraine.

He later brutally shut down Bremmer by tweeting, “Nobody should trust Bremmer”

This follows Sven Henrich asking Musk if the rumours were true.

Musk tweeting back this “No, it is not. I have spoken to Putin only once and that was about 18 months ago. The subject matter was space.”

Last week the Tesla CEO suggested that Crimea, which is Ukrainian territory under international law, should be formally recognised as part of Russia.

This follows Musk previously saying Ukraine should remain a neutral country.

The world’s richest man also recently suggested that Taiwan should become a “special administrative zone” of China too.

The Bank of England and Britain’s finance ministry think the UK is likely to need to create a central bank digital currency later this decade.

“On the basis of our work to date, the Bank of England and HM Treasury judge that it is likely a digital pound will be needed in the future,” the Telegraph quoted BoE Governor Andrew Bailey and finance minister Jeremy Hunt as saying in the joint report.

“It is too early to commit to build the infrastructure for one, but we are convinced that further preparatory work is justified,” the Telegraph quoted the report saying.

The BoE declined to comment on the Telegraph article, but said a joint consultation on CBDC issues would be published shortly.

A government source said the report would be published next week.

BoE Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe is due to give a speech on Tuesday to update the finance industry on the BoE’s CBDC work.
