the forces and the connection with donald trump is that the one of the probably the last great tragedy of the first world war was a troop ship called dial which was coming back to the west of miles to the hebrides in the first of january one thousand nine hundred and was lost in a storm within a couple hundred yards of the shore and another several hundred young men were lost in addition to the thousands who'd been lost from the west of my own in the trenches and that created such an imbalance of population between men and women multiple each in the west on my own as a series of embarkation chemically ships were arranged in the one nine hundred twenty s. which women only in many cases and on one of the ships was a young medium a close the mother of donald trump somebody who incidentally went to america as a refugee effectively as an economic migrant. fleeing a situation of great great deprivation and in the western islands you think that
the person i said would think about other people's circumstances would get w. i made a fantastic successful self in america good luck to and she was a mother of the president stated we were going to get him would jump in a second so we're telling about a show in edinburgh by a defeated politician who. you haven't even announced the guests in your show yet and it's already one of the fastest selling shoes in all the debris fringes tree yellow last because i didn't and i was to get. beaten but on borrowed. the optical setting here as a perfect place to talk about it it was going to sure politics. come a fee as well as sport the show because it's going to be fast moving a lot in it but it's on the light side. so it's a fun show but the white said to be a few serious points here may also be a kind of monologue from either be a dialogue of a guest will be open to question for the. the audience will go away as
a band of comedienne and then we'll go to a charity auction and will corrupt it was going to be a really fantastic and you're quite right it is one of the hottest selling shows on the fringe does sell tickets so quicker than german corbin's you're by some margin if you don't do one. but i was not i'm sure general of the. sports and the festival in the book festival in the past i'm i'm sure you'll find that a very amenable place because there's a bit different from a normal political meeting in there you go to a festival audience who are generally speaking you know good natured well informed . they are for fuel to he had to listen i'm to participate and i'm sure jeremy will love it that serious question for promised us questions because you'll be hundreds of friends girls will believe you'll see i mean i hardly. ever say here are the m.p.'s to the public i don't know but i mean they're obviously very serious issues facing the nations of the u.k.
at the moment is it a good ripe for humor in this some would call it a grace as well of all times right i mean i believe that as a politician and i certainly believe a known politician but now you just see the lights if you don't if you know of the ability to see a bit of humor sometimes black humor of course and everything will life's not worth living and in my estimation i was trying to see the the way to say the politics as a participant and so i think i'm entitled to see even more for the time being at least a non-participant ok you mentioned don't show believe the s. and p. policy on syria was pretty clear which we were war and war and peace do you feel vindicated by what's happening in syria and of course don't trump the cities ending cia backing for defect to al qaeda or isis linked rebels in syria yeah i mean i the we couldn't see it when the. the parliament the
the legitimacy of an intervention in what is a multifaceted an incredibly complex civil war in syria a as opposed to iraq for example where there's a clear legitimacy in terms of the invitation and from a government which is recognized iraq to receive this sort of i'm not a bit you know i'm not talking to twenty three not talking about the fee i'm talking about no so you know whether you agree with individual tactics and individual engagements there's no challenge to the democrat to the legitimacy in him center national law of the intervention like the old joke or what you're saying as well you know i mean look i as people probably understand certainly the festival goers who could to my show because one of them one of my monologues was largely devoted to the donald of devotion is probably not the right word but but somewhere centers on the donald in these characters and i have to say i've got very little
time for that but that doesn't mean he is always wrong. i don't think the president of states has been wrong in his general approach to russia for example i think you know you don't think he's russian spy i don't think so russian spy i mean i think the donald we miss is going to be in commercial interests rather than political ones but the point i was going to make in terms of his general attitude to be able to take the proposition that you know giorgio is better than the cold war cold war seems to be a more sensible arrangement between america and russia. other people other politicians in the united states who allowed themselves to be gold and. so i just because i disagree with his the best policies i disagree with the offense he causes so many americans lisa and those member transgender people in the armed forces. if you don't think. in the united states becoming from the meat political speeches to
the boy scouts i think all this behavior it's ridiculous and basically i think he's unfit to be president that doesn't mean that he's always wrong you know with bricks that we now know that all the nations of the united kingdom are going to have to make a trade deal with the united states is it wise to be willing the antagonism of. the part of any british well as was a guest i don't think donald is going to be and i would be as low as it is to bake a trade deal in my estimation but more to the not i mean you know the problems with it trade deal united states military because i'm critical of the donald and because i'm going to make a few revelations about condit was would be a great surprise to everybody given what the c.e.o. you know going to tell us from going on but nonetheless there will be revelations it doesn't mean i don't think he's a tough negotiator and if the united kingdom enters into a trade deal with united states for medical from a position of supreme weakness which is what the position is at the present moment
then the terms of that deal will favor the united states of america and don't try to be against his tired nature to do anything else no doubt he'll call him he looks and he'll have us while. we're spending more time dealing with michel barnier not be enough for david but we'll foresee a lethal force against the donald trump as in the negotiation who are you going to but tell you claude in eating chicken will be the least of these and just find him very briefly we've heard in the past forty eight hours in the us john good you are saying that the sanctions by the united states own russia. they could be counter sanctions the austrians saying it the unions in europe. how central are sanctions against russia you know between in the e.u. united states relations obviously economic sanctions are better than some of the
appellant there's some things economic sanctions are rather liberal use the not used as a means of getting action but almost as a substitute for nuclear wallasey well that's why i said the breath of the milltown those but equally they can be overused and you know the united states of america has a tendency to take you take for example the. the argument of russia you can interplay with fame you go was the interference of american elections so you can you can see there was a substantial argument to be decided upon ok do you believe there was i don't know was is the answer although i do also accept that america probably is the last country the world to talk about interfering in other people's elections since they've done it more than once but this ice is against iran at the present moment know by every examination by admission of the cia by acknowledgement of the
american senate a has kept to the nuclear plant treaty. the most significant achievement of the foreign policy of president obama set to state and all the others who joined did not is a huge international step forward that but from the brink of a nuclear confrontation and everybody in everybody's interests. that is continues to be a success. no that was predicated on a thing of sanctions of will coming out on back into the fool full of the international community of recognizing and the start of a civilized and educated society that iran has be a fantastic addition to the commonwealth of nations iran as a full participant. to jeopardize. for purposes of being tough or not liking the you know every aspect or of having some probably deeply mistaken view of the sunni she shaped division and out of society they want
to recognize that big picture of saying that it's been a success let's try and build it for goodness sake in the fight it was a previous administration success shouldn't matter of these contexts as i think significant try to stay in anything that sean called yukos doing to kowtow to science is against the run and trying to find a different source would be very welcome examined thank you pleasure. after the break from gaza to trump's transparent wall in mexico we speak to award winning or losing hughes hallett about how barry is used to keep the wealthy and keep poverty out. cia coups to pranking trumps cabinet in the international national sports and whether this week's very news all the more coming up about doing going up.
here's what people have been saying. rejected a night with the sixty's full on ourselves and i was the only show i go out of my way to launch you know a lot of the really packs a punch oh look at leat yampa is the john oliver of marty americans do the same we are apparently better than the blues nothing's better than the sea savior you never heard of love redacted tonight i'm the president of the world bank so take your bundle write me seriously send us an e-mail. the local wal-mart is selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles that stole the few socks for the tell you that will be gossip and tabloid lifestyles of the most important news today. while the positive outlook has been telling you you are not cool enough to buy their products. these are the hawks that we along with our audience will watch.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington the washington post media the media. and voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. make it as we describe it he's the thief a thief big or a big mule is saying you're a thief so if you read to me this is just going to be piece of this this is not that this to get you ready but they thieves that's the big thing about the.
whole existence to you so. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or something want to. have to go right to be first this is what before three of them or ten people that i'm interested in the waters. there should. be economic development is all about numbers we're really pleased to report this quarter we earn one hundred six morning. but what do we know about the other figures. when i think about the fact that our c.e.o. mike du made over a twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart is says he had. with all due respect i have to say i don't think
that's right. it is not just you know a free market would. people went from pretty simple financial lives pre nine hundred eighty to the point now where people are. just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly devoid society from the protests of the government tried to do it wasn't necessary maybe. it might be making things worse. i say this is not how capitalism works this is our capitalism goes hopelessly design rome. welcome back i'm afshin rattansi bringing you the national international sports and weather from this week's buried news first as u.s. navy ships fire warning shots at an iranian revolutionary guard vessel in the persian gulf newly declassified documents have shown the key role that oil played
in the cia backed coup of nine hundred fifty three to overthrow the democratically elected prime minister of iran mohamed morsi back to another i think the reason they have been so reluctant to publish these documents is that it shows how involved the u.s. embassy was basad are in internal iranian affairs it's like looking at an imperial power in assam a colonial situation. mark of weiss roy cia boss mike pompei always confirmed his agency's ongoing involvement in south america remarking that he has so called deep interests in working with colombia and mexico to ensure a transition in the leadership of venezuela but as well as foreign minister several months also took to twitter to accuse u.s. intelligence of organizing the right wing demonstrations that have killed nearly one hundred people since april. nearly three

parts of the of the story are two walls and one is the wall around a great estate with a great high city center in rural england and another is the ballin rule and the house around which the wall is being built belongs to an artist pratt who has been in exile almost all his life since he was a small child he's a political exile but there has been a real regime change in england six hundred sixty the munda key was restored after a whole generation of civil war. and he's come back and he hasn't had a home he's been a refugee all his life a privileged one but nonetheless homeless and with no certain future and what he wants to do now is create for himself a safe and enclosed space and that's an understandable human disaster but of course if you create an enclosed space for yourself you are almost by definition going to
be excluding others or you don't do a building building the walls in that way between rich and poor a very what about the flipping and between the seventeenth century and the sixty's and macy's were the possible comparisons why you chose them well as i said the berlin wall which. goes up in part two of this of this novel and comes down in part four is another kind of enclosure and i'm interested in the ballin wall well i mean everyone a city is interested in the battle and war it was the most extraordinary phenomena in world history in that it was a moment when people tried by putting up a physical barrier to split society a country and one of the very interesting things about it i think is that the east german authorities told their own people they're putting up this wall for your
protection they wanted the east germans to feel that the other side of the wall in western europe they were ravening hoards of fascists and. that's what they say it was it was called the protection world but of course a lot of these german citizens didn't believe that they saw it as a war which was imprisoning them and not allowing them the freedom to explore other possibilities and actually prosperous and either a country or was a little burg in the news very much back in the news because the american people really electoral college voted for having a war on the united states is of a mood yes i mean i'm not happy about the fact that donald trump is not president of the united states but he has helped to make this book feel very timely but it's not just mr trump's will i mean there have always been walls and the great will to china's one of the most famous the roman emperor has tried to exclude the scots from the southern part of the british isles by building walls there are walls in
israel walls in northern ireland and while i was writing the last section of the book there were barriers going up all over europe the last section of the book is set in sixty nine sixty five the year of the play when people in london were dying in enormous terrifying numbers of the body play and they didn't really understand how the plague was transmitted they certainly didn't know how to treat it so what they did was run away from it and as i was writing that section of the book i was describing the roads out of london into the countryside crammed with refugees with migrants escaping from danger trying to find a safe place in which they could perhaps make a better life for themselves and as i was writing that section set you know more than three hundred years ago the newspapers and television screens were through
images of migrants walking away from the troubles in syria coming up through taki up through southern europe trying. get to a safe place and a better life and i hadn't set out to write a book about the migration crisis which hadn't already begun when i started writing the book but certainly that that echoing off what was going on in my imaginary world and what was going on in the real world around me was at once chilling but also i suppose it told me you know i am on to something important here but really comparable the failure of medical science arguably in being able to make the british public understand the plague of refugees room major was back in the rebels in syria and the bombing of libya well the parallel comes when the people who are in a safe place. as it were put on trial that their humanity. generosity
that tolerance but that their ordinary kindness is put to the test are they can take these people in are they going to give them at least a temporary refuge and. the lord willing and the man who owns that private estate that is the setting for my novel he fails that test and it's props understandable you know he's been an exile himself his own sense of security is it's very unstable he's you know it's been a hard one for him but he closes his gates he doesn't allow the refugees in and. he's said yeah he's he's judged for it but thank you that's it for the show without good wins if you're going to be judged we do we'll see what wednesday fifty three years is a day of a false flag gulf of tonkin incident engineered by the white house to get the
american people to go to war because we just we have melded into the british medical journal would result in up to four million violent. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave
a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. no not once up to the ocean off limbs off let down one might have been a tough the definitions an alibi and the. one seeking i need. us out. and. take them you know not equal to the just it do me good docs to give them an onion get ready for it. now is that by. now and you know the movie if he might not be a lawyer how did i know not beach me out on south. london this just silly me climbing alone just like you know he did. he says no joke

a standalone entity. that is doing. what these to be done in the five years it's getting worse the violence is escalating because it's millions of. british are really good are great when somebody calls you know they believe that their ranch is there are areas and they don't believe. that there is taking responsibility for their security which we would for anywhere else.
