welcome back you're watching r.t. the eurozone could deal with a greek exit according to the german finance minister as greece struggles to form a government new elections may be needed if political parties fail to agree on a coalition following sunday's inconclusive poll political turmoil is already threatening the country's bailout agreement with the e.u. and the international monetary fund euro zone governments have held back part of the scheduled financing with greece receiving one billion euro last them plant the country set to run out of cash in june catalyst michel bras things the eurozone needs to split to one of the damage of the crisis. what we see is
a programmed crisis it's very sad to see things developing but it was more planned within the your because different countries like greece and germany are not fitting into one currency and it is a end of the day you will have this is what we have no. violence on the street. it is not possible to real. everybody knows this is the whole problem that we have in the eurozone cannot by risk. cannot be solved anywhere it can only be solved by a break up of the rule that means to germany pulled salt and the rest of the countries in the. value to their money. again competitive against the world then they can bridge. the greek political deadlock and the storm in its causing in the eurozone is up for debate and peter lavelle's
cross-talk the full program is coming up later today. is anybody seriously suggesting that greece outside the eurozone would. look at the moment. the value of the drachma before. the euro or arguing my view on a number of occasions the problems that probably have remained in place if you haven't done really a teenager who's really lazy and doesn't do anything and is draining your bank account what do you do you kick him out of the house and generally get his act together so that's the same kind of approach it could be taken to greece and i think they without this this safety net that the eurozone provides they might actually get around to realizing oh my goodness we have an issue here and we can't just elect experiments we can't just screw around we have to actually get our act together and do something productive. as london prepares for the olympics bureaucrats and lawmakers have been busy too in
acting a range of rules and regulations draconian measures are already slipping some people from the continent while a number of residents have been banned from the games simply because they've objected to the construction of olympic facilities near their homes are just laura smith explains. the olympic torch is lit and on its journey to london accompanying it fear uncertainty and code red level security impinging on the lives of people from london to las vegas that's where tim kaine lives he's supposed to be in the u.k. training martial arts enthusiastic but as he was boarding his flight he discovered the home office had excluded him from the country on the grounds that his self-defense course might incite vigilanteism being that i have a fifteen year history of coming to the u.k. training thousands of people from the u.k. and also european clients coming into london and had no incidents whatsoever in and
the rhetoric that's being used is absolutely inconsistent with what i teach it's a level of paranoia that increases the closer the olympics gets but london a simon mall won't get anywhere near the games he protested the building of basketball courts on a green space near the olympics and was slapped with a control order that forbids him from going near the olympics or any other celebration taking place this summer he faces five years in prison if he disobeys these that legislation is being used to prevent. lawful and understandable protest to aspects of the games which are undemocratic or unpopular . furthermore these are just this legislation won't prevent people from disrupting the games the wall it will do is it will give the ability of the authorities to to punish people more severely i think it's insane i think that it shows the
prevailing state of consciousness in governments and on the world which is one of the ultimately we're in control luckily for simon he doesn't. live near the stadium but tight anyone who does this building's less than a kilometer from the live picture park the plan is to station a battery of high velocity missiles on the roof of this block of flats for two months over the olympics a proposal that's already triggered an explosive reaction resident brian whelan learned of the plans from a leaflet pushed through his door late one night some people are worried about the effect the property values some people think it may be building a target for terrorists some people think that it's discipline as it is not secure enough so people don't want to be turned into some sort of military base where they really affect the quality of life. my big argument is. nobody consulted
on the mit never spoke to us the two thousand and twelve games have spawned a level of security that's unprecedented seen by many as overwhelming and repressive the question many british people are asking is if it's like this already what's it going to be like when the lympics circus finally rolls into town north smith london. so take a look at some other stories from around the world and they had a soldier has been shot down in afghanistan by a man disguised an army uniform the incident in the east of the country follows an attack on a local government office yesterday were an armed group also disguised as afghan army troops killed five people the taliban has said it carried out both assaults similar recent attacks have intensified mistrust between u.s. led forces and their agone partners with western forces due to leave in two years time. clashes have continued in believed for
a second day running as medical students battled riot police in the nation's capital apos protesters threw rocks and firecrackers at officers fired tear gas and rubber bullets one of the country's largest unions called for three days of demonstrations after rejecting a salary increase offered by. the governor joined doctors and workers of public hospitals who are protesting at an increased working hours and cutbacks. the front runners for egypt's top job have gone head to head in the country's first presidential debate are also former foreign minister under hosni mubarak and. fatah a moderate islamist challenge each other about religion throw in democracy the televised debate lasted for hours with supporters of both candidates watching closely outdoor cafes around cairo the two are among thirteen candidates running in the election due to begin on may twenty third. claims that iraq had weapons of mass
destruction led to the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three later today on r.t. our special report covered the war on iraq shows how bogus assertions were used to start a full scale conflict with catastrophic consequences here's a preview. the people of the united states and their friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass market is regime as an active program to acquire and develop nuclear weapons and let there be no doubt about we know for a fact that there are let there. this were just being carried out into the direction of dr david kay respected scientist and former u.n. inspector was leading the weapons search in iraq we are determined to take this apart we have a tremendous a group of dedicated american men and women involved in this with the best assets of the intelligence community can provide. data cheney is not going to be done with
this for quite some time david kay wants more time and he says it could take another six to nine months to make a definitive finding ministration is asking congress for hundreds of millions more six hundred million dollars to fund a continuing search have not yet shiny pointy things that i would call a weapon before we can draw from conclusions we need to let the iraq survey group complete its work. we were all wrong probably in my judgment. and that is most disturbing. sometimes the true patriots takes the unpopular course but helps the country and for the stakes and even if they come this way at least patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels and i think these are scoundrels they have no argument now they have no defense for what they did the country is in a terrible international security situation that i think is perilous so they're
attacking the patriotism of others. be all right a special report is coming our way and a few moments from now before they have across the businesses to check out what's happening and the turbulence. world of business marina's gone the latest as always well earlier you just painted mixed picture so how have things changed. basically we're seeing markets slowly making a huge cern when it comes. out in the second because we saw a nosedive in previous hours but when it comes to you were actually seen the dax as negative territory if we take a look at the latest figures there we can see that x. is flat and that's really even though i can see it behind me on the screen it's. negative. we're pretty much sure that it's going to escape negative territory for now when it comes to the footsie it's heading there slowly again but we have a number of factors influencing investors there first of all we have down big data
coming out from china then we have investors warry especially after reports as stacker and later loss from the u.s. biggest bank there are also in the second with more details and also we have space and there are reports that i will ask for more money and in fact the government there says it's. to clean up its banking system and one of the ways proposed is to force banks to set aside extra money to cover the cost of loans going bad and the figure would be ever around thirty nine billion dollars but some analysts doubt that the country can afford the amount of capital required and will eventually have to get outside help. when it comes to the russian markets as i mentioned earlier they nosedive this low is three percent and now we're seeing them make a comeback we are. just a little bit over two percent and the my sights a little bit over one and a half percent and besides the fact is that i'm said earlier if i can european
markets for russians it's also lower crude prices which will show in the minute and also the fact that gas from has. been if it's a good look at the individual moves on the my six calls that. well this is something that happens regularly so we see the figures back off there now as opposed to the gas from setting over four percent when it comes to. yes i've said it over seven percent in this among the worst performance today and financials aren't doing that great either we have. won the about half percent they're now moving into the exchange rates the euro this hour and we can see it's against the dollar and the ruble of a mixed picture this hour it's a nuisance against the greenback gaining the euro now moving crude as i said quiet says are dropping and they're heading for their second weekly drop about some advise in the u.s. also on thursday we heard from opec the group of major oil exporting countries
saying that they're producing almost ten percent more that is that's a serin this of course always sense prices are lower and that when it comes to u.s. markets are closed so we're seeing the picture all of thursday's performance of after the longest losing streak in nine months mostly was managed to make a comeback but when it comes to nasdaq the dolphins in negative territory after a sharp drop and cisco systems are staying with the u.s. as i mentioned earlier the biggest bank there j.p. morgan chase has rules in a staggering trade in losses the bank says that is due to complex investments made by its traders and that results and so the trading loss amounts into two billion dollars and after this announcement the shares fell six percent. more optimistic news for you this hour. all right i'm happy for that thanks very much indeed for the sub date and next year in our t.v. we're bringing you the special report the. on the real reasons behind the iraq
market why not. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune in to conjure reports . you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realize everything you thought you don't know i'm sorry welcome to the big picture.
