inequality of the false majority of people here do not benefit from the wealth which is invested where there are not free flights which is take the time where we have people out in the sun the streets in a free like how to but i'm afraid to reserve my house lost and credibility after the election i don't think it was very long most people think she is only here because the different factions in the tory party decide the way and now to get rid of one of the key problems in particularly in law and the right across the country is an absolute shortage of social rental homes and what that does is they're not fees to talk kinds of things so for example it feeds through into the way that people on the temperate housing homeless people can't simply get social housing because there's no there's no they can't be counted we have got to talk to very little i mean really the crisis is so bad that it really does require much large scale public investment in a council house building and. police united states have searched the home of the

suspects in the stabbing of a police officer major going to court on wednesday the f.b.i. says the attacks being treated as terrorism suspects has a clear hatred for america they're investigating this incident as an act of terrorism we have just filed a complaint charging an individual by the name of a more two week he's a fifty year old resident of canada i think suffice it to say. these people. like you. are most. the officer in the neck the policeman was taken to hospital and is now in a stable condition moments before the. gold is great in arabic suspect has been taken into custody jennifer breed in an explosion terrorism says the us has made itself an easy target for lone wolf attacks. now you know there are a lot of countries where you don't see these kinds of things happening but you are
7:04 am
seen in the west the more liberal and democratic societies where we're trying carefully not to offend you know for the last eight years the united states we actually have policies that prohibited our law enforcement from looking into religious facets behind extremist attacks that means any kind of religious extremism wasn't even allowed to be investigated and so that's why it's particularly in the west they're wanting to export their extremism their violence to the united states and to europe they're wanting to exploit that and everything that they've called upon their adherents to do is to carry out these terrorist attacks in the west and to call on them to carry out these quote lone wolf type attacks on behalf of them and the west has made itself a very easy target specifically europe and the united states where i am by not really investigating our law itself to look at that there for fear of offending people or offending a religion the thing is just the latest incident being treated as an act of terror this year in just six months europe has seen eleven terror attacks with pledges with an average every million days left up to fifty people dead and over three
7:05 am
hundred injured around sixty thousand potential suspects one of the latest incidents in europe occurred in paris. the call full of weapons into a police. have a gun despite terror watch list the french prime minister expressed little surprise over the incident. so sort of no one could be satisfied that someone who's been officially flagged can benefit from this authorization to carry arms certainly not me so the attacker who was on a terror watch list had a permit to carry arms and the prime minister is not exactly happy that's that it seems that the terror threat is not causing so much shock nowadays becoming a rather common thing on average every nine days and twenty seventeen a terror attack was attempted across the e.u. while eighty four percent of brits now believe that the an attack on british cities is a very likely that's not really surprising and after the mayor of london had this to say to the public.
7:06 am
so what else is part and parcel of living in a big city well now that everybody's ok with the thought of another terrorist attack being imminent some businesses to decided to grab the opportunity to cash in like with anti terror insurance which has the potential to be a three billion dollar industry and isn't growing demand anything from a liability for businesses reputation which has suffered after an attack so the obvious def insurance payouts then there is more like an anti terror adjudication like they say you can't be too careful so perhaps taking one of these terrorism awareness courses could be of help here are just some of the things you will learn after completion recognizing unusual suspects of course identifying an explosive device and even their nukes on abbey taishan during catastrophic bleeding no time to take courses no problem take one of these pocket books with you while you're on

a train or a bus there is a guide for grown ups and now a guide for kids not a big fan of reading no problem they got you covered so their needs an up they can help you be more. open to create is a concern that people caught up in an attack may not be clear on how to respond in the immediate. aftermath when every second counts more while apps for the whole family some are free like the citizen aid app while others will cost sure but the bottom line here is how ethical is it to charge for this stuff or even make an industry out of it i would probably go along the line that if we continue with our training with our support and enhancement of our resilience to these scenarios that she the fear factor of a terrorist assault becomes less we all have different modeling and how we create the product and what we want to try and do with our training is to try and roundoff that fear so lost is not completely normal we actually accept it we deal with it in
7:08 am
a robust manner saved lives today the number of terror suspects arrested in new you has doubled since last year rising for the third year in a row and it looks like the trend keeps gaining strength so it may be that everything terrorism related will most likely become a new business nish to invest in the gulf answers and jagow r t and meanwhile the matter of belgium's second largest city and two up says almost five hundred sixty percent should be radicalized people are under the earth already has control of those one hundred eighty nine off or to pose a serious danger in austria the country's foreign minister has said muslim kindergartens should be closed to all of a as this report. well sebastian curtis is an outspoken figure in the austrian government only thirty years old of course and he has caused quite a stir with what he's come out with in relation to islamic kindergartens he says that they should be shut down because they culturally and linguistically isolate
7:09 am
children does you know guys is should prepare children for school because of their can speak german but you know to go is a difference in terms of their language principles we don't need them at all so busting curt's has caused controversy in the past back in twenty fifteen he proposed what was called the islam law that he put forward before the the austrian parliament this proposed that all mosques got their funding only from within australia and also that there was an austrian approved version of the qur'an that was used in mosques within austria now a watered down version of that law was passed it didn't have the official verified qur'an in it but in october of this year from the first of october it will be illegal in austria so where report that ban was signed into law just last week in the austrian chancellor christie in current his grand coalition government has just fallen apart they going to the polls in austria in october of this year in snap
7:10 am
elections all four of the elections and the far right freedom party have supported a lot of the untying islamic legislation. there their polling currently around thirty percent in the polls there they've seen a big boost in support of. the victims of last week's grenfell tower blaze could have been hit not just by the smoke and fire but also poisoned by an extremely toxic gas that's according to latest expert analysis on the cause of the tragedy let's cross live to polly for more on these revelations polly thanks for joining us what more do we know on the progress of this investigation. well look cyanide is one of the deadliest poisons there is and apparently the insulation boards on the building on ground felt how it could have been letting off cyanide as the building was burning and we know this because the hospitals treating some of the victims of the fire one of the hospitals as said that they have treated three people for
7:11 am
cyanide poisoning so one of the theories now is that the people in grenfell tower could have been knocked out by the cyanide before they even had a chance to escape the flames and bear in mind the building's management was telling people all of the instructions from the management was for people to stay in their apartments until help arrived the other parts of this scandal that rapidly growing is the cladding so the material used on the outside of the building which turned out to be extremely flammable the government's been checking to see whether it's been used anywhere else in buildings in the u.k. and to resume a spokesperson has just said that that cladding was used on at least six hundred of the buildings in england alone so that cheap and very combustible material which according to the chancellor here in the u.k. philip hammond is actually illegal to use take
7:12 am
a lesson the cloud. which winds up like a rocket across most european countries is burned to the united states my understanding is that the cloudy in question this flammable plan which is bundy in europe in the u.s. is also been tear. well to reason may has already apologized for the way that the government handled the often model of the fire and also the failings that brought it about and just after a week after the tragedy the first official head has rolled the c.e.o. of kensington and chelsea council nicholas holgate he's the highest or he was the highest on the elected official at the council he's been forced to resign by the government until he's a maze just been speaking in parliament she said that she says it's a good thing that he's lost his job but a lot of people here are saying he's just the fall guy for what's happened that he's been chosen as the scapegoat perhaps to deflect scrutiny from high
7:13 am
above in the chain of command there is a lot of anger over what happened many people have been calling on to reason made to resign given the election result and also over all this criticism to do with the government's handling of the fire yesterday there was a large anti government demonstration in london it was called the day of rage laura smith was there and she also some of the protesters what they made of to reason may's apologies. the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without roofs over their heads without even basic information about what happened what they should do that was a failure of the state local and national to help people when they needed it most as prime minister i apologize for that. do you write that terrible if she comes out
7:14 am
here and says that you know maybe. i think that. when they cry when she gets a little bit i miss my life when they. see. i make choices but it was a little. thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and he knows needs to be trying him why is it has so getting away with this sort of. the fact that he was. treated like i. think two to reason to blame for these. people in the house of parliament. a good for part to play for his face march in reaction to brucellosis terrorists and these people see them and see immigrant
7:15 am
attacks and of course the handling of the ground felt how a disaster in which at least seventy nine people are known to have been to death although the death toll is expected to rise i was approached earlier by a quiet man who handed me a leaflet with a picture of the man on it he said the man was his friend he had lived in granville tower he wasn't a protester he just wanted to know whether his friend was dead or alive and no information was coming he organizes that at the beginning of the day that that aim was to bring down the government and to shut down london. they've done an excellent job of shutting down london this government can no longer have authority over people's life because they always will put profit before people people have been saying that they don't know how many people were living and when friends how i. mean undocumented immigrants and say we possibly will never know how many people were killed by. a

7:20 am
over syria now where the u.s. led coalition is conducting a major offensive on a city of rock the defacto capital in the country of terror group islamic state u.n. secretary general antonio has expressed deep concern over the loss of civilian life during the operation he said the he remained alarmed at the human suffering throughout the country warned civilians are being killed injured and displaced that a terrifying right good service did the situation in iraq remains particularly grave with people trapped inside the city and facing threats from every direction the secretary general is particularly concerned about the perilous situation for civilians in iraq where trapped in face threats from every direction the united nations and humanitarian partners are doing all they can stand the suffering and rucka and across syria often at great personal risk the secretary general made an urgent appeal to all those conducting military operations in syria to do everything in their power to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure as fighting
7:21 am
continues in iraq and elsewhere according to u.n. estimates since march alone at least three hundred civilians have lost their lives as a result of the u.s. led airstrikes over the coalition claims that has caused less than five hundred deaths in total over three years of its military campaign it's reported that the conflict as seven full time investigators monitoring civilian casualties there from two earlier this year ortiz looked at the streets of new york to find how much ordinary americans know about the plight of civilians in iraq and. you live in america and you follow the news related to syria here's what you've probably been hearing lately you've heard that the u.s. led coalition downed a syrian government jet because it was moving into the deescalation zone of al tam why they say that this syrian jet was posing a threat russia is obviously not happy now what you probably haven't heard about is all the civilians who died as u.s.
7:22 am
led coalition forces are moving and rocca you probably haven't even heard of rocca you heard about what's happening in iraq i know. now. you heard about civilian casualties in iraq oh. i had think i have heard something about we have a video someone talking about it here it is at the at the little when the war planes come they strike multi-storied buildings where the terrorists are but they're also civilians in that house and how can the plane strike then more civilians die than terrorists so civilians were either helping eisel or being used as hostages or as protection against u.s. armed forces so that they wouldn't attack that house in order to get to ice so how are we supposed to take care of that and not kill innocent civilians if indeed they're innocent secretary of defense matters he says that's two billion cattle
7:23 am
thieves are a fact of life in this sort of situation do you agree with that oh no not at all you know all life is precious you know and nobody does really but that's the line they use always and it's in reality there will always be some civilian casualty but it shouldn't be if that life you know for someone sitting in a desk chair in washington to say that it's very difficult. you know i think it's a very delicate political situation some of the reports that have come out say that more civilians have been killed then i still fighters but in surprise me at all especially big. is there is no they're wearing a badge says i'm. right or right there or there were. civilians so how can you always tell me who's who's who and it's been a big thing of the friends in the military tell me like you have no idea who it is until like the shooting at you now that this is a prize they say that as many as three hundred civilians according to the un have died since march. oh yeah i mean if if if there's ten airstrikes
7:24 am
a day that's treaty expected but again because i think they're making it a fact of life so it's become normal as it has become once again like i said all like this precious and civilian life shouldn't have to perish for whatever the reasons we have a reason to be the hands of our government based on our conversations here in manhattan it seems that average americans aren't really aware of what the pentagon is up to now as u.s. coalition forces are moving in on the city of raka civilians are dying bombs are exploding but their plight remains largely under the radar cable mop and are seeing new york. the french president says he doesn't want to see a repeat in syria of the mistakes made in libya intervention there which france was a part of is widely regarded as having fuel global terrorism. reports from paris.
7:25 am
almost gave a suggestion that they could be uncomfortable times ahead for the two countries the u.s. and france which have been historically very strong allies in historical conflicts that the u.s. and france have been involved in together particularly in the way he actually said that the intervention over nato allies france and the us along side other nato allies in two thousand and eleven which eventually helped lead to the removal of khadafi was actually wrong a mistake and he said that he doesn't want to make the same mistake in syria. france did not participate in the war in iraq and this was right but it was a mistake to enter the war in libya what are the result of these two invasions destroyed states in which terrorist groups thrive i do not want this to happen again in syria president said that he now believes the removal of bashar al assad which has been called for by france in the past by his preterist sesay. is now not
7:26 am
an absolute priority he basically said that he's been given no evidence that there is a viable successor to ensure that syria doesn't become as what he described a failed state as libya and he also said that the key now is to ensure that terrorism is the top priority and he's cool to get on for this issue to be dealt with by a coalition of countries coming together and he said dealing with terrorism because that he says is the most pressing issue in today's world next thought international watching the hawks coming your way to stay with us again next out. the fact that trump to get elected with a series of lies and distortions is a reflection of fact that the voting public could be convinced by that and what we really need to do when one of the reasons as a scientist i'm interested in this is we really need to get people to apply the
7:27 am
same standards of politics that apply to science skeptical inquiry empirical testing and demand evidence for what your politicians tell you. when lawmakers manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the final merry go round be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. leave the real need for. those issues with another post this isn't just. how.
7:28 am
the law i. told. you to live in a dose of the other is that. you. just . have to leave the last that you can be. the barbecue or not that i. was i don't know that might wind up paying for the cell phone with a cell but oh please. but he investigate police officers behavior as well. i'll take drugs at the west end up a presence here. many people as you close. greetings
