it's of the greek economy from its crisis because there are these they're only interested in finding a solution what is in the spring of the moment and they just don't want any news from greece to be the picture that's all he says instead we're moving toward a nation in one hundred thirty days in europe whereby you have two mountains competing against one another which one is the highest amount of this and banking losses and then a mountain of savings i have no where to go i do savings these to be them and frustration over post-modern stagnation might be like now the average income of a household in the u.k. continues to spiral down and that's while the government reveals plans to shovel billions out of the welfare budget britain spirit of survival might help jumpstart the economy but as artists are first explained that will hardly be enough to drag the poor out of the financial swamp. britain's in the midst of a double dip recession and everybody feeling the paint or all of a chilling new research has revealed that the gap between britain's rich and poor
1:06 am
is widening in fact if you are one of the middle income or low income families in the way to tighten your belt even further it's so that by twenty twenty an average low income family could see their net income full by as much as fifteen percent i think is really worrying for low income households because it shows that we don't just have a growth problem if you like an e.k.g. shows that even once growth those kick in households across the bottom half are going to be poor in twenty twenty than they were in twenty that it was so alarming about this latest research is that it's based on very generous assumptions about the future growth in britain that what that means. says that even if the person manages to repeat and give this to the economy it starts slowly dragging its way out of this recession the not everybody is going to benefit and the ones who are going to be hardest hit going to be those middle income and low income families now in an age of austerity britain's government's been accused of waging war on

britain's poor chancellor george osborne wants to cut a further ten billion from the welfare budget again having that knock on effect to middle income low income families who need to support the most well they are on today we caught up with the resolution foundation to talk to them about this latest research they conducted there posing the all important question not just if and how . but if it does who it is he stands to gain. has the poor are getting poorer it seems the rich are using every opportunity to continue stuffing their pockets with cash and at later today on the kaiser report. boys anti-fraud boss who stole two point four million pounds told police she deserved cash for long hours the fraud took place during the financial crisis when boyd's itself was receiving substantial amounts of taxpayer money so again. this woman for some reason gets arrested and sent to five years in prison for doing the same exact
1:08 am
thing that ironically or not her bank was receiving billions and billions of these taxpayer money out here to bail out for their own fraud that's the way things get at the end of the organized top talker say is that those who are actually doing something to benefit society as this woman is obviously doing to try to put lloyd's out of business that i see fantastically here in the city of london that thousands of caucus stock or c. bankers investment bankers will now be laid off this is fantastic this means that we are doing our job so that george osborne and david cameron i say that we're here we're on a mission to put the city of london completely out of business so far the news is good all those people are being shipped out of the city they're being forced to get real jobs shucking oysters down to cornwall and making course pasties for a living and that's the way it should be because they're just caucus talk to terrorists. the first

day out of the u.n. general assembly in new york was quite predictably marked by boiling over of tension between iran and israel iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad used his speech at the gathering to denounce israel's alleged nuclear stockpiles and its occupation of palestine they were in president's address to leaders and ministers from over one hundred countries prompted israel's ambassador to walk out ahmadinejad also implicitly accuse the u.s. of shielding israel and paving the way for strike on to iran this comes just days after washington decided to remove an iranian militant group the mac off its terror blacklist jamal the policy director of the national running american council believes the sudden change of heart over an organization striving to overthrow the reigning regime is no coincidence. u.s. officials went public they went to n.b.c. and said is working with mossad to conduct assassinations inside of iran so there is clearly at least reportedly still

a paramilitary aspect to this group and they are committed to advancing their political agenda by using violence and here's the thing if these guys could. pressure their way off the terrorist list they could pour millions of dollars into the top lobbying firms in the united states and basically manufacture this campaign to achieve their political agenda here imagine what they're going to do now that the any case off the list and you have all this money that we don't know where it's coming from is swirling around and the next push is we need war with iraq there could be no mistake that this campaign was a campaign to make war more likely this was part of the push for war when you have negotiations between the u.s. and iran the number one hurdle from the iranian side is this perception that the united states doesn't actually want to negotiate a resolution to the nuclear issue that this is about regime change just like on our side our number one concern is we can't trust the iranians that they don't want to nuclear weapons this adds fuel to the fire inside of iran that this is really about

light by new york authorities only going up this monday the ads are already causing much debate are they too offensive to the muslim community or does freedom of speech conquer all let's find out what new yorkers have to say about this i'm shocked that that mayor bloomberg and his people are allowing that which is going to lead on to more and anti everything it's a good idea to have anti islamic sentiment for some reason absolutely not but just perpetuates anti people sentiment controversial of course it's controversial is poisonous in the new york city subway system you know this is a city that's been racked by a trauma for years and years and here we are after eleven years of war still using the language of war these ads are going up in new york subway stations today but what do you think about this. while i support israel the safety and peace and security of israel i'm not for hate speech but at the same time we have a first amendment is there really a very fine line between freedom of speech and offending but there is this freedom
1:17 am
of speech there's also freedom of religion so you have to walk a fine line should be inside muslim but people still should be aware what they're doing the anti muslim ads are popping up at a time when protests continue raging in the middle east over film depicting the prophet mohammad so should new york officials have considered not just the substance but also the timing of this campaign they ought to be less this caution and just let good thing that i add as a time because they are you know they hate us over there whenever you start speaking against religion especially when tensions are globally the way that they are yeah i think they're not going to be some consequences well i could see how could my things complicated. where they would have an effect on the u.s. but we could use this as something against the u.s. do you think this could have a more dangerous consequence. it's really for the united states sure the anti islam ads will remain in new york city subway stations for a month and whether they could lead to more dire consequences than just sparking debate is exactly what remains to be seen as they see it you're going to
