square protesting against the military which is staging a brutal power grab results of the presidential runoff will be announced sunday four days later than expected meanwhile the standoff between the ruling generals in the muslim brotherhood continues and many fear the military could use the delay to alter the outcome of the vote. second out of confusion as to who will be announced egypt's makes president there are still many people here in tap his square as they begin a fifth straight day of holding a sit in for many of the people here are muslim brotherhood and there is growing frustration amongst them that the election results have been delayed they were
initially supposed to come out on tuesday and increasingly more and more people here suspect foul play on the side of the army talking to protesters here they say that they worry that the delay might be because the army is trying to pull the strings from behind it's trying to quit taking its grip on power and at the same time trying to organize that it's candidate atma chafee is in fact to create egypt's next president now on friday tens of thousands of people turned out here in the square at night it was the just display of egyptian unity seen on the streets of cairo for quite some time the protesters being older guys by the muslim brotherhood but here too all the youth all sixteen of us as well as the extremist salafist party now the military has defended its position by saying that it is not trying to attain power at the same time it's criticize the muslim brotherhood candidate dr mohamed morsi doing up emotions morsi has hit back saying that they can be no further delays in the announcements of these results he says that the
army must respect the will of the people and that these protests will continue but interestingly enough he has is no longer saying what he said just a few days ago and that is that he is the window of this election to get some more insight on what's going on in egypt we're joined live from cairo by hugh miles a journalist author and consultant specializing in the middle east so the official announcement of the presidential vote is now set for tomorrow well it used tensions on tahrir square or a few of them even further and obviously supporters of the losing candidate are going to be on the happy what do you think. egypt is a very divided society and is not going to be a satisfactory outcome whatever hospices whoever is not a good president the other side is going to be huge but fighting the clad. very unstable moments sorry cold and trying to. most of the protesters are supporters of the muslim brotherhood if their candidate loses do you think that there could be another revolution there. may be possible i mean there's all kinds
of scenarios possible that there could be could be a huge response toppers glad there could be a revolution again could be a revolution spreading to the military which is the worst case scenario for the military rulers in this country. that will a number of. dramatic possibilities. are out that we just really don't know what's going to happen next with a military council adopting the interim constitution last week how powerful do you think the country's new president will really be. well the military. patter of the president last week when. some very. wide ranging powers involved in the problems themselves including the complete legislative powers and the powers in the country. whoever the president is going to be
weak case president in egypt history. i mean there are many questions beyond the presidential election i mean the other voting issue is the issue because which it still won't be very little progress will spawn like these come. and in many ways this is the big prize rather than the presidency because whoever gets the right the constitution. rowel on the line for the foreseeable future not just for the next president do you think the time may come when the military may have ventura relinquish power and completely headed over to a civilian leadership. well i think it will take many. helpful to look at what's happened in turkey. finally the muslim brotherhood policy about the turkish general. but it's taken them about forty or fifty years
to get to this point. egypt has a long way to go for democracy to prevail and the military is now the new president will take power in a country that right now doesn't have a parliament how do you think that will impact his first months in office. it's got a real the supreme council the armed forces all the real power in egypt so it's true there's no plot of the new constitution. is going to come in weeks or even weeks it's going to be very weak because of this constitutional law that in the last week every people asya here that the only power that the president is going to have is the free people when they come to visit a car apple. all right well thank you very much for insight hugh miles a journalist author and consultant specializing in the middle east joining us live via phone from cairo thanks again. but coming up later in the program
a big game for big drinkers with engle and advancing in the european championships the team is up for the cup while fans are up for a pint but health experts warn that a thirst for glory is becoming a dangerous excuse plus. we need more money or less money more. yet because we have all the stuff of the financial crisis takes its toll on people across the globe the resident in new york ask people how a fat how or ask people how fat a paycheck they need and if more money would make them happier. but first julianna songes fate remains in the limo was ecuador ways whether to grant him political asylum latin american countries recalled its ambassador to britain for a consultation if the weeklies editor the request is denied he'll likely be arrested by british police when he steps out of the ecuadorian embassy where he's been holed up since tuesday artie's elaine a million she had chosen ecuador as capital quito and has been looking into his asylum chances only on the sunshine has been claiming that he's case was
politically motivated denying sex crime allegations always he's wanted for questioning in sweden and it's exactly those claims of police to laser up the case tara we looked into hearing that were there but there is still no sign of the season he's on that we now president rafael correa says ecuadorian authorities are assessing if there's a real threat to a sunday's life the latin american leader has stressed that with the rejected the penalty so if he finds there's strong grounds to songes fears of being ultimately extradited to the united states he might decide the whistleblower needs protection he would. have to see if there's any death threats against julian assange will have to analyze his reasons for requesting asylum if he's had due process ecuador is a country that rejects persecution for ideological motives. we lost his extradition appeal to the u.k. supreme court either we could accept it there is ultimately handing over to sweden
his likely to be detained immediately that's what assad said himself in his first public comments since he took refugee in the ecuadorian embassy on tuesday after having spent eighteen months under house arrest without charge that we could be excited to add it is not looming there solution to sweden that worries him the most but he's possible removal to the united states where he claims he's the subject of grand jury proceedings he also said that the u.k. and sweden deliberately slowed down his case to allow the u.s. time to drop charges against him for leaking hundreds of thousands of secret u.s. documents while ecuador might hope to be seen as a defender of these are the end ideas by accepting the world's number one whistleblower as a political refugee it could be made to suffer for its actions for example it's been suggested that ecuador is trade with the united states and consequently thousands of jobs my suffer immensely if the latin american countries shelters are signs obviously there's a lot more to this than meets the eye we have to wait and see how does
a seemingly never ending saga plays out. swedish writer oscar sward says it isn't a scientist fear of prosecution in stockholm that pushed him to take the drastic step of seeking political asylum. in this week's issue is that he's afraid of getting them convicted for sex crimes i think that's much too simplistic even if he would be convicted in sweden he would be immediately released because he has been serving so much time in england so basically off he comes here might be a couple of weeks in imprisonment and then prosecution maybe but the after that he will be released and then what happens them well sweden has a record of being very subservient to to the u.s. when they want people or they want crackdowns on certain things in sweden and so on so that is the reason for him being scared of getting to sweden of course we always
welcome your opinion on the stories we cover today on our website we're asking what you think the future holds for julian assad it would have you stack up right now the majority more than a third believe assad will say if we get to ecuador and iran we can reach from there less than a third though think the whistleblower will have to spend the rest of his life on the run last quarter reckon assad will be handed over to the us and sent to guantanamo bay and finally about ten percent say he will spend years in the ecuadorian embassy in london what do you think by going to argue dot com and cast your vote. from the pitch to the pub excitement over the euro two thousand and twelve football championship is reaching a crescendo and so is the drinking this weekend season england play its second round match and with the country's bars set to be packed emergency services are taking all the proper precautions as r.t. sorry for reports. i.
think it will be in a better place to catch the game than down the local pub watching football in the pub can be absolutely fantastic it's a great big communal shared experience and many great games big hundreds of people there's not been an ounce of trouble just a fantastic atmosphere and if you can't be there a lot of people feel it's the kind of the next best thing certain things like england knights we were always at danger it could turn ugly but when it's roy is a wonderful wife to watch football having a pint in the game is part of the english drinking culture and thousands of books in london's bars and pubs whenever a match is on. the ballgame or not we're always responsible drinking tea drinks like us if you. didn't exactly. but the stats say something very different is a big problem for us and over always the last five six years we've seen
a massive increase in our households and when they move around sixty five. incidents every year the london ambulance service operates. very drunk on the regular service the alcohol recovery is normally dispatched on a friday and saturday nights extra services are now being provided in britain big football games especially. for the euros. every home. and foul behavior from drunken english to full fans can be more than a little. of . every shift before we go. because what happens. to most people in the trunk. good for code that by providing this service that more calls to the taxpayer is the british government
scoring a goal by catering for the problem rather than tackling it head on and england's better than expected performance has meant more people out drinking and being a weekend time to get drunk because at the lasik a call when you take sport and alcohol and you put them together generally speaking you find it doesn't matter whether your team's winning or losing in general people will use that as an excuse to drink and so our advice is to keep an eye on how much you're drinking. tournament and not just guying but actually let's remember that the tournament lasts for three weeks so if you're drinking a lot each guy name actually i've got three week period you're leaving might have taken a bit of a battering with these the fans letting this side down by being such a burden to the health service many feel it's high time english football support is save it up so there are. plenty more news for you on our web site r

us it seems that for many of us the money we make is never quite enough this week the resident takes to the streets of the big apple often associated with big bucks to find out what size salary would make people feel happy. how much of an annual salary would make you feel think that's this week let's talk about that thirty five mm hm. a euro per year that would be enough for you i think it would be good seventy five thousand here on a grand hundred grand it's forty thousand dollars some preserve the fun really serves five with forty thousand dollars around a bit a hundred fifty thousand per couple that would make you feel like that's what i would say probably. two hundred thousand dollars that's a lot but yeah this is why do people want so much money can it in the united states we think about its consumption but everyone knows that the things that you own own
you and that the simple life can make you happy why does no one subscribe to that it's just philosophical it's what we grew up with it's what we were trained with it's what we believe do you think the answer varies from country to country in terms of success oh i'm sure does so what do you think on the scale americans fit and. do we need more money or less money more. yet because we have all the stuff especially in america the money is everything america is the money we like to live in because we. live well you know schoolteachers are definitely are in more banks why do you think that schoolteachers earn so much less than people who don't necessarily add as much value as you do i think it's because we're just good natured and we are caring and we don't we're not in it for the money sound yeah so
those kinds of jobs are going to get paid less because you're not greedy as much money as i need. to live healthy and with my family in good shape and just to be lucky i think that's that's all i don't need that much money no more than that no more than that do you think if you made more than that you'd be happier that's though i think you spend what you make so no matter what. it is going to spend what you make yes so if you make eighty thousand dollars you're going to spend more i'm going to spend more and i'm getting a bigger house and a bigger boat and everything else to go with it we don't need that. yes i do. the bottom line is your annual salary might increase but that doesn't mean your happiness will necessarily increase with it. we're back at all but without water and stay with us you're on our team.
