to teach really shouldn't why you should care about humans and. this is why you should. only. thank you for joining our team and how nice the hour i'm karen these are your headlines u.s. officials come clean about washington aiding the syrian rebels name sources say weapons are flowing in the rebels claim they have recently seen an influx of arms from abroad to fight the regime in syria. the euro's on shaky ground as greece's new election could see the country take a leave of the currency union it would send shock waves across the region with each new heavyweights still hoping to keep the greeks. and a family walled in and left in isolation israel's barriers are separating people
who've refused to leave lands passed down through generations but israel says the walls are essential for its security. trying times for the eurozone and next we talked to chuck it aboard to the economics leader writer for the guardian newspaper about what worst hit greece and what the entire region can do to get it back on track. today i'm talking to dieter chakraborty who's an economics leader writer for the guardian newspaper we're talking as politicians increasingly start to discuss an exit for greece from the euro zone as you see checkerboard he thinks that orderly all disorderly that exit will see disorder on the streets of greece like you very much for talking to us today and we've recently seen these elections in greece which appear to have shown that the greek people reject austerity how long do you think that rebellion is going to go on for i think it's already been going on for
the better part of two years ever since the european union and the i.m.f. impose a really severe program of spending cards and form of welfare on greece you've basically seen a country which is dissin very quickly into the realms of the young governable what you saw simply unlawful action in this was about getting on percent voted against austerity that is for a party that was against austerity now whether that means that they're against spending cuts well that means they're against reforming labor laws would that mean they're against changing the welfare system where they simply privatizing whole swathes of national assets i don't know but what you do see very clearly from greece these elections and i think you've seen for the best party years is a kind of wholesale rejection of the program that's been imposed upon greece and we've seen germany's finance minister will crank schauble make it very clear that i would agree stick to this austerity all it quits the euro what's in greece's
interest would you say. what's best for them i think we can start with the most obvious thing is to stop this austerity what happens next well that's a that's a more vexed question if you want to talk about whether it's a good idea for greece stay within the euro or not. i think either way it's commute very painful this. for greece if it stays within the euro. it will be forced to stick to some kind of program imposed on it from outside for a long time to come and it won't have a great safety valve that's normally given to countries mistress or been able to devalue its own currency that lots of problems with staying in the euro leaving on the other hand of the kind of volatility and turbulence which may well look may or may well make the general strikes to rights all the rest of it look like walking a pole compared to what happens next so that's from greece's point of view but what about the point of view of the rest of the year is the german chancellor angela
merkel and new french president francois hollande says both say that they want greece to stay in the is greece essential for keeping the euro zone together really . it's not but the big question that will come up as soon as any country walks out a door is which i was going to follow after it so greece is a very small economy greece is also it's pretty clear and exceptional case within the euro zone economy because it's had the biggest crisis of the lot it's had the biggest bust of the lot it's got of course you know it's got a whole series of. specific to greece but if it goes then what's to stop portugal from going to and talking about sort of house of cards and this is being this is being the big question ever since it became clear that southern europe was in trouble was it was never about one country in particular and it was particular not about greece assumes the questions of arise about greece in question actually the
big questions get raised what about spain what about italy and these are these are the really big economies have been some europe and within the euro zone and so when i go merkel said if the euro collapses europe itself will collapse do you think that sort of prophecy almost coming true. three funny statement for the german chance to make because the euro the euro is a union the seventeen countries the european union is a union of twenty seven countries and growing and so for her to ally one with the other is a is a very curious thing to do. it may be rhetorical overstretch but it may also be that she sees the euro zone affecting without that what happens in the european union probably she's got it she says the euro equals european union but she also says austerity equals zero so what you've got. very clearly not just in greece but across the euro zone now you've got electorates and governments collapsing because they cannot impose austerity on their own their voters so even in neverland
government government collapses because economy posen sturdy belgium hasn't had a government for the best part of a year. if the if the european equal just thirty and if the year if european. and if the year equal then vote as they want us thirty so what does that mean about the rest of the european union i think you've got to come up with a better story for europe is for than simply it's about the euro what about potential exit for greece politicians are now really for the first time talking about an actual situation where greece might access and they're talking about an orderly or a disorderly exit what do those terms mean and what real difference do you think it would make really really odd thing when people who are all the or disorderly is all evil disorderly for whom because i can assure you that any sort of situation however well managed for the group for the ordinary greek it's going to be very disorderly indeed it's going to be very very turbulent. people have been modeling
what a greek exit from the euro zone would look like for the best part of a year politically and economically politically even those who are in favor of greece leaving the euro zone. they would accept that it would involve the army being on the streets to keep order it would mean the banks would have to shop for speak up would be a teams would not be working it would mean that people would stop from leaving the country especially with disproves of europe in their back pocket because the country would then need to stop all capital from the country and to maintain a very high level. so it would feel affected like a countryman of marshall vote. the question all in the saudis really for the rest of the euro zone if the euro zone can say to threaten to financial markets look greece is leaving but we all know greece is a special case you know behind hands will say it's a bit of a basket case and actually its problems are not the rest of the euro zone that's
what they really mean by an orderly exit if they can convince everyone that greece is leaving because of greece not because of the euro i don't think the markets would buy that because the rot has gone so far. financial markets are unwilling to lend to spain or to italy that i don't think people any longer see is a problem confined to just one or two small countries and what about the situation with the banking sector in greece at the moment you talk about sort of disorder on the streets we've seen in the region of a billion euros i think withdrawn from greek banks just in the last ten days how significant is that how close do you think that is to panic withdrawing a run on the banks essentially. i was i went into one being spanx in greece in the capital athens in syntagma square last summer and one of the two most popular financial products and pulled out a say. to what. they were going to say. they
put their money they no longer keep their money in counts in the bank they keep it in a safe box in the vaults below almost under the mattress exactly like twenty first century of keep it on the pillow. so actually a bank run has a very slow motion bank run has been evident in greece for the best part of a year what you see in the past ten days is that sped up dramatically. the banking system in greece told him the purpose is been a zombie five banking system for the best past years because most of the debts that greece holds has been written on so much a single portion of those debts held by the greek government are held by the greek banks system so effectively a sudden apollo worthless loans and that's before you get on to the loans are made to businesses and households which also not worth half what they were if that. so it's pretty clear that whatever you would have to do to greece stays in europe where it does then you're aware victims was thirty were doesn't it in your authority in need to do something to restructure and to bring back to life its
banking system but it doesn't have the money to do that and no one in the rest of europe is willing to give it money to do that and all over europe there's a growing popular opposition to the political and economic union how of european bureaucrats failed to convince the people that the european union as a whole and the euro particularly are a good idea. i'll turn a question around you have to say it's the most it's it's the crowning achievement of brussels it's managed to take a largely pro european continent and turn it so wholesale you against europe and the euro we're talking in britain where. if you look at the popular press and even sections our political party system there are a whole variety people who would see brussels being on some kind of conspiracy plot to turn all banal as straight and this is always been part of the british public discourse what's been really interesting from this side the channel is actually more and more the continent is turning against the euro and turn against europe and i think that's largely goes back to what angela merkel says about if the your
affair with europe fails she has made europe about the euro and she's made your about making spending cuts even in germany which is seen as being the strongest and most successful economy of the past decade even in germany the average german worker has seen his or her wages for a deposit kate take out inflation the median german wages fall and four percent over the past decade so even you are rich german workers the person in the most successful strongest economy in all of europe is worse off now than they were when since the euro launched and how far do you think politicians in brussels are willing to go to save the union and what you've seen in a past two and a half years is effectively a whole series of blame games going on a soon as it became clear that greece was in trouble people in brussels and cross normally would say well that's greece you know we need a relation really been part of the year in the first place denial and says hang on we're in trouble well you know the irish they can never control this their property
market in portugal well ways portugal then spain italy and so on so forth always becomes the fault of these individual countries and no point until very recently didn't say hang on there is a systemic problem here because you see whole swathes of europe now effectively going bankrupt or as close to bankrupt as you can get. and so the very belatedly they realize that actually this is not just about country's been at fault but about an extension crisis bureau. having only just recognize that they're nowhere near putting the policies in place that might save your. thank you very much.
think. we have to begin to identify those goals you have to. push. to stand. above the can just say. i can't. please to come to peace. as i get by people don't seem all that bad but it is a bunch of losers but i have a very good. job see that's all nonsense so they don't have jobs they're losers. my tax. cut.
technology innovations all the developments around russia we've got this huge earth covered. u.s. officials come clean about washington aiding the syrian rebels as on name sources say weapons are flowing in the rebels claim they've recently seen an influx of arms from abroad to fight the regime in syria. the euro's on shaky ground as greece's new election could see the country take a leave of the currency union it would send shock waves across the region with e.u. heavyweights still hoping to keep the greeks in. and a family walled in and left in isolation israel's barriers are separating people who refuse to leave lands passed down through generations but israel says the walls are essential for its security. policy here with the latest sports news.
thank you very much care and welcome to the world of sports here's what we've got coming up. kenny cups it liverpool soccer manager kenny dalglish shell to just one full season in charge after that worst premier league finish in eighteen years. wonderful williams but serina and venus dispatch a russian opposition on their way to round three the italian i can time it. and on the truck the head of the international paralympic committee says he's impressed with sochi progress two years before the winter games begin. but we start with football where a fee for delegation is in moscow as the group towards the country before announcing the final sure list of the lame eleven venues for the two thousand and eighteen world cup delegation arrive fresh from the cut from in fact finding
mission on monday a total of thirteen cities of vying to become world cup venues two will have to accept defeat they sought and when the list is announced three trips to cazan got all sat around some mata on volgograd are still on the itinerary for the fee for representatives and delegation head of the middle isn't giving much away. i'm constantly be asking which cities will make the final shortlist everywhere i go in russia it reminds me of my daughter who always wants to open a christmas presents while it's still summer we're currently in the process of gathering information about each location and the fief executive committee will announce the definitive list in september meanwhile over in england liverpool have parted company with manager kenny dalglish after just one full season in charge the reds finished eighth in the premier league the lowest since one thousand nine hundred ninety four they did however reach the f.a. cup final where they went down to one to chelsea and won the only cup former
teammate alan hansen says it was a lack of goals which cost outweighs his job. well they say the little green the cups carling cup final and final relatively cooled the league position either with the. play and there were really good new. position and you'll be in. but i think basically. you know if you look at the top twenty goal school. english premier league there's no all of who played amongst them meanwhile new england manager roy hodgson has been explaining his reasons for leaving former captain rio ferdinand out of his euro two thousand and twelve squad the thirty three year old manchester united defender was a method for hutchens list of twenty three who will be going to poland and ukraine placed purely a football decision there was a man that i both respect as a player as a person i don't know it well personally but of course like everyone in the room i've watched it enough of him over the years to realise what a fine he is and what a good person is but i had to make
a fulfilling decision to destroy it on the basis basically of what i've seen in recent months and in particular influenced also to some extent by the fact that hasn't played so much since the world cup and has only played once things and in the last year. meanwhile republic of ireland manager giovanni trapattoni says this summer's tournament is a great opportunity for the country i would haven't qualified for the european championship since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and haven't been in any major tournament since the world cup in two thousand and two but it's by being in a group with older spain two thousand and six world champions italy and croatia the italian believes his men can reach the knockout stages because the ninety minutes never say never possible. or you must believe. these boys you will also have to go over the first group. in the order. now we've reached the knockout stages of the ice hockey world championship in
finland in sweden all four quarterfinal match is take place later on thursday reigning olympic champions canada. stop then russia will take on no way co-host and defending champions finland take on the usa finally last year's runners up sweden play the czech republic. of the hardwood now away in the n.b.a. boston have taken a two one lead in the best of seven series against philadelphia in the eastern conference semifinals that's all thrown away one hundred seven ninety one win over the seventy six is in game three pace was top score for the celtics with twenty four points meanwhile in the west oklahoma have taken it to nil series made over the l.a. lakers off their seventy seven seventy five winning game. tennis whereby serena and venus williams have beaten the russian opposition to reach the third round of the italian open in rome serena so off not a throw in three sets four six six two six three the russian had never lost to the
thirteen time grand slam winner having won back to previous meetings and things appeared to be going to plan his patrol that took the first set six four but the twenty nine year old then squandered three break points early in the second allowing her american opponent to storm back and take the second set six tell you before racing for the third and final set williams is unbeaten in fifteen matches on play this season almost form ahead of the french open later this month. her sister venus got the better. in straight sets although she was pushed all the way in the eventually winning the first set high break nine seven exertions of the first set seemed to take it out of her russian opponent as williams eased to victory in the second taking it six one. the unseated american will now face a u.s. open champion sounds closer in round three. now there's less than two years to go before the start of the twenty fourteen winter olympic and paralympic games with
authorities continuing to inspect venues and infrastructure in the russian host city of sochi international power olympic committee president phillip craven visiting for the first time this week now almost two thousand venues will require access to people with disabilities a sixty one year old stating he was impressed by what he saw having organizes all rocketing on the commitment to ensure all areas are acceptable to less able funds as well as the athletes themselves. every citizen will have the right to call me a spectator income and enjoy and that's what the paralympic movement is about and that is what i am convinced. so she twenty fourteen started with and now we see it is delivered you know we've seen it delivered we've seen we've seen the curling venue we've seen the main stadium just now and now we've seen the the smaller the venue. finally motorsport may still be dominated by the male sex despite his
appointment of a female test driver for this formula one season but maria de villota isn't the only female making noise in a man's world as richard i'm told me found out when he met russia's natalia for dina. blond beautiful with a need for speed russia's natalia freedom is causing a stir within a new to racing world some are native who's been living in switzerland for the last eight years is currently the only woman competing on being a fine a.g.t. kids and she says there is no coincidence that she got into sports that if any of my father wanted a boy i was born in stand so i had no choice but to fulfil my downstream i was really keen on a career in my sport it's still not. going to bring. julian grayson professionally . she's currently driving an aston martin as she competes in a g.t. free competition which takes her around various circuits across europe however
she's loving every minute of life in the fast lane and it's learn to overcome the usual stereotypes about women drivers that sort of think their first few strange people either saying wow nice great to do good i still get jokes about being a blonde behind the wheel but i have just learned to take it in my stride however natalya's have a chance to learn the tricks of the trade for markedly one of russia's best ever races alex eva c.e.o. of the forty year old has competed at lemoore and has been racing for almost a quarter of a century in the tally our partners both on and off the track but no doubting who's the better driver. of course when it comes to motor sport i'm on pole position but when we are talking about thinking things through logically then of course natalia is in front. however getting into the sport isn't she the top of the range i'm big enough for ronny will set you back hundreds of foreigners and have euro's but it's so exciting point sounds russian teams underachievers getting
a major boost from the country's top oil firms of a government has taken a particular interest into sports but nonetheless it still takes massive financial sports just to get started. on like athletics or swimming where you only need a pair of trainers or trunks motorsport is way more expensive as you need a top car which you have to maintain it's very expensive to buy the tires and spare parts especially for a ferrari for a child who's competing in the russian go karting championships it will set their parents back in the region of fifty to sixty thousand euros just for a season however competing professionally in a ferrari is much more expensive and will cost them two hundred thousand euros money oversleep plays a massive pass in getting started but talent also plays a very important role as well. both newtonian amik say he will be looking to go from strength to strength in all aspects a big career. goal for me tante most good. well the oldest school for now i'll have
more for you in a little under two hours time here and i'll take join me that. my married mother did not like we're going to become. he was afraid. and she was very cold. she filled. our lives frankenstein's monster. we don't have the problem. every time and effort is made on the palestinian or on the european side to negotiate and to the violent attacks
against israel which i have no fear of war call the. song goes you have no. calling the leader of the state of israel one of the main terrorists in the world. we are supposed to be seriously examining history but you mention a few words about jewish culture labyrinth and people get so upset this is i'm sorry to say it's a form of emotional blackmail.
