through the stories that shaped the week going on the ground is next up on. an island stay with us for sputnik. we're going on the road as u.k. shadow home secretary robert speaks out against the bailout the city of london and the labor assembly against austerity today coming up on the show how dangerous is u.k. foreign minister. the pentagon needs a delegation to korea we also would willing join the still to go about the perils of potential british backing for a trump nuclear war in asia. vivienne westwood who along with a nine year old boy could find themselves going to jail for for posing. king in
britain plus all sorts of curious camden finger gestures are being deployed each tried to do in terms of eccentricity possibly of prowess what would happen did this week's u.k.b.a. . told us more going on but today's going underground but first apart from this week's british economic growth figures which contradicted pre-breakfast referendum city of london predictions there were also figures out from weapons company boeing that's boeing recently slammed by u.k. pm theresa may on its sales. calls we have a long term partnership with boeing various aspects of government and this is not the sort of behavior we expect from a long term partner in this undermines. the pm talking the next goldman sachs remain a mark carney of the bank of england but of course what she was referring to was boeing trying to destroy the canadian company. just like u.s. companies allegedly helped thwart this project overseen by the mentor of president u.k. labor leader jeremy corbin i'm here to join with the people who built the concorde
in this flight knowing now that the sixty eight are going to be built and will introduce. that come to. supersonic u.k. french concorde would be more bold thanks to companies such as lockheed allegedly lobbying the us government to prevent it flying to los angeles so that the plane could never fully make its money back there were other reasons but either way new york has never since been three and a half hours away from london this time around bomb body and all its jobs in northern ireland appeared to have been rescued by air bus a company that boeing as a lot to say about on its website the big dispute between the united states and europe has been about the european practice called launching so what exactly is smart she taxpayer money the governments of france germany the united kingdom and spain to airbus every time it wants to develop a new airplane model because boeing doesn't get any money for its weapons programs from the u.s. taxpayer right in fact this week's boeing results are arguably a testament to the. state subsidy which makes for
a circular argument many more area space workers are employed by boeing in the u.k. the body but to raise a may need to bone body age and maintain relations with her coalition partners the former paramilitary link buddy claims that makes up ten percent of northern irish exports someone pretty knowledgeable about for what causes britain uses its weapons whether british or american is britain's foreign secretary john snow he's telling u.k. politicians not to come on this show despite his own father appearing and he continues to call out the government in syria for the alleged use of w m d well joining me now to help us is award winning journalist dr gareth porter who is by the white house in washington d.c. gareth welcome back to going underground so foreign secretary boris johnson here in britain has been in between telling politicians not to appear on this network r.t. has said yet again definitely syria used chemical weapons what have you been discovering about this illegible chemical weapon used by the us government well i
decided to commit several weeks a number of weeks to doing my best to piece together a coherent sense of what happened there and what i did really conclude very firmly is that the official view point that there was a sarin attack by this air force in country couldn't simply could not have been the case because primarily they couldn't come up with the parts of a weapon that should have been there right at the alleged site of this attack which was a crater or a hole in the middle of the road and they admit they have nothing they they can't come up with any explanation for that and until they come up with an explanation one has to try to come up with a different understanding of what happened there and i did provide an alternative understanding based on a pretty serious investigation of all the facts that have come to light. no not
really time to go into the details of that but basically there is a lot of evidence that the syrian air force did bomb the. a house in country corn which was not that far from the site of the of the alleged point of impact of a sarin bomb but but several hundred yards a few hundred yards away and that that released an agricultural chemical which then caused phosphate in to be released into the air but that is consistent with basically the symptoms and signs that were exhibited by victims in the city so so that that's the substance of my story on on the country current affair so when british foreign secretary boris johnson speaks carol when officials are on that lawn behind you speak with such certainty about syrian chemical weapon use it might as well be bush and blair talking about w m d in iraq well exactly i mean look we
know that the united states and its allies are committed to this point of view for reasons that are complicated you know there's no point in even going into the reasons but but they do have an interest in that narrative and they're going to stick to it regardless of what the facts really turn out to be of course one narrative we never hear about in britain is that britain was involved in killing twenty percent of the population of north korea what do you make of the fact that boris johnson said this week that we must be able to envisage attacking we must have that on the tape just like donald trump that of maybe annihilating the country right i mean this of course is the official position of the trump administration and of course the u.k. government is going to necessarily go along with that and support it and i must say i find this the most worrisome thing about u.s. foreign policy today that the trumpet administration is pushing this threat of.
essentially not a preemptive but a preventive strike against north korea unless they cease their testing of nuclear weapons and their their longer range missiles and this is a form of traditional u.s. coercive diplomacy it's very clear that's what they're after i don't believe that they intend to do any such thing but the real worry here the serious problem is that we know the north koreans are very sensitive to any sign that the u.s. might very seriously be ready to strike against north korea we know that in the one nine hundred ninety s. for example the clinton administration was preparing to carry out. a set of severe sanctions against north korea through the u.n. and the u.s. military was extremely upset about that they were very worried about it because they knew that the north koreans might well consider that to be a prelude to a u.s. attack on north korea that the north koreans would regard any
particular particularly any move by the united states to evacuate civilians from seoul which was being contemplated in conjunction with those sanctions to be a proud to an attack on north korea so it's a very very sensitive matter it's very tricky to draw the line precisely the right place and i'm worried that this administration will go too far in this regard russia and china are being expressing concern ironic you mentioned clinton because that again the british foreign secretary this week said he loved it the old days when russia was complying with a with a clinton administration symptomatic of some ideas in washington that they like it when roger is a kleptocracy run by the i.m.f. well i think what they're are longing for is are the days when they had a yeltsin in power who was let's face it he was more or less a u.s. lapdog. ugh during the time that he was he was in power in russia and you know that
was a very comfortable time for the united states they were they were feeling like they could do whatever they wanted with regard to russia so we're now facing the consequences i think of that unfortunate period when the u.s. really set out to. push the nato front here right up to the russian front here and thought they could get away with it unfortunately did not consider the possibility that a more nationalist administration would inevitably come to power later on and that's what we've seen in more recent years of course in russia now i know both of us know iran a fair bit what's your reaction to trump policy on iran because i mean i don't know whether to get the tragic humorous way is trump not doing everything iran once by canceling cia funding for is the mists in syria backing the iranian backed iraqi government and now reneging on the deal and bringing to have run so much closer to
easy to capitals let alone most go in beijing well first of all of course the objective situation in the middle east is such that us real interests of trying to stabilize situations which were completely destabilized by past u.s. policy is really coincident to a great extent with the policies and interests of iran that's that's absolutely true and in fact my colleague bob perry consortia news just published a story in which he says that source that that is well informed in side the u.s. government told him that trump actually signed off on a policy that was in fact continuing that policy trend of trying to stabilize things which which was in fact coinciding with the policies of iran across the middle east and that would imply and did in fact imply supporting the continuation of the j.c. p.o. a nuclear deal. and then according to this source as perry quotes the source the
policy suddenly changed after trump met with netanyahu. when when you netanyahu came to the united nations in september there was a sudden shift in policy now you know no one knows exactly why that happened but my guess is that trump you know is somebody who basically does not have his own principles does not have a firm grasp of the objective situation and basically responds to various people who he talks to and change his mind based on netanyahu is. presentation of the situation but i must say that there are very stark similarities between the trump policy as he finally presented it publicly toward iran and the policy of the george w. bush administration support for the eretz israel greater israel a very aggressive israeli military policy in conjunction with an aggressive u.s.
military policy in the region so so that's why you know i think there is a very strong parallel between the trump administration policy and the bush administration policy but just finally and very briefly what are your sources saying about the fact that at least trump curbed obama's support for isis and al-qaeda linked so-called rebels in syria which ghibli were allied to israeli policy yes i think that that really represents a position that is shared within the u.s. military leadership and the pentagon who were concerned about the situation in syria and you know really we're not eager for the united states to be allied with the al-qaeda folks in in syria and you know one to a policy that would be more consonant with the realities of the situation there and so. that is again consistent with the view that. the military the pentagon
wanted to have a policy that would support the j c p o a. and to try to continue the stabilization rather than rather than to reverse that and. and support a policy that would be not in keeping with with u.s. interests in the region thought of thank you in a previous segment we made reference to boeing we contacted them and they said this is a commercial dispute with them by da which has sold its c. series airplane in the united states as absurdly low prices made possible by major injection of public funds in violation of u.s. and global trade laws own body chose to violate u.s. trade law and your thoughts as have taken a preliminary decisions in force tariffs boeing is following the long established process for setting trade disputes and we'll see where the facts lead boeing welcomes competition but we should all follow the rules. after the break. vivienne
welcome back there's arguably nothing that concerns british antipoverty campaign is more right now then something called universal credit being rolled out by minority government to raise a may according to labor leader jeremy corbyn parliament has voted against it the house voted by two hundred ninety nine zero. to pose the role of universal credit will the prime minister respect the will of the house the prime minister replied like the question can send cat food four out of five not have a ten and full house or five people are satisfied very satisfied with the service. we'll have more on universal credit on monday's show but corbin was obviously not impressed by the answer just as he's not impressed by dresner made plans to celebrate the both a declaration which catalyzed illegal occupation of palestinian land in the middle
east that's not the way zionist labor and tory m.p.'s celebrate with troy all small national contribution to the creation of a democracy in the middle east sharif for those who suffered from anti-semitism and fear its rise again and in the state of israel a true friend of the united kingdom mase reply ritually came within an hour that israel announced illegal jewish settlements in the heart of a palestinian neighborhood of east jerusalem we are proud of the role that we played in the creation of the state of israel and we will certainly mark the centenary withdrawing of course it is the creation of israel which fostered islamism in the middle east israel after all funded them us the belfer declaration would also help to cause havoc in the region rich in fossil fuels but a different kind of fossil fuel havoc was addressed by the s. and p. at this week's pm queues the scottish parliament voted by ninety one votes to twenty eight to fracking in scotland. the prime minister why she wouldn't consider
. following school and introducing an interesting a moratorium in the rest of united kingdom in order that it could be a fleet of valuation of the health and environmental consequences of this controversial technology and in order that the public can be consulted drazen may made clear her unstinting support for the technology which causes climate change this is an issue on which he and i simply going to disagree well someone who doesn't agree with the woman who lives in this house behind me and three activists a nine year old boy named all of the fashion icon vivienne westwood and her son the designer jo cora i'm going to go and see them at the gates to downing street. it was back in january that nine year old all of a greenwood wrote to u.k. prime minister tourism a about his fears of anglo swiss petrochemical giant seeking an injunction to prevent any proof from the villages of marshaling. to resume herself did not
respond next weekend he also will seek an all encompassing injunction over one point two million square acres preventing and potentially imprisoning anyone objecting to its plans to frack in the u.k. fashion icon vivienne westwood and sun designer joe corey heard about all of his letter and told us that they arranged to hand in another letter to number ten downing street but the police at the gate stopped them we spoke to vivienne westwood and joke or it was signed all over to get some number ten downing street why haven't they let you in to talk about fracking with the prime minister or even to deliver a letter well i don't know but i've just been reading. it so good you need broke it all himself and he stayed still really nice. and that the country will turn into a gas like sack and it's mother's been upset and anyway it's sell well written it's fantastic if you've been to the communities affected by all of
those families and friends knowing and literally unanimous. village turned down they got any type of their mounts because this giant petro chemical company has been terrorizing with the most strict company an injunction that i think it's a bit being granted in history i'll be in the high court next week to defend there but the situation we find ourselves in at the moment is this country is now literally surrounded by from scotland the republic of ireland of all band fracking we have moratoriums in northern ireland and even. surrounded by countries of the band and the conservatives are now isolated as the only major political party still probably fracking in the us deny that they're terrorizing anyone and it's for the safety of the protestors they should be banned from
demonstrating against fracking. and their p.r. companies i'm afraid of involved in organized professional lawyers and that will be exposed i hope in the next what is the mood in that community here in the past twenty four hours and they frightened even a grandmother making tea could be said to jail but generally this injunction stretches beyond even that it stretches to people making comments on social media that they don't like it stretches to people talking on interfering with their supply chain who are no even. on the injunction. it creates an imprisonable offense with something that is a minor structure and actually parts of human rights and civil rights to put to peacefully protest they're trying to turn people into criminals they had to do it at a secret court hearing supplying these unary people of would say it's and i can tell you i met them last night if you want to talk about duncan spirit any also
a bit off more than i can chew. this is they're not going to be frightened by this but they've been trying to terrorize people that have been serving in the police force for thirty years as a bronze commander public. protest can understand this injunction and think it makes their job more difficult. but on the other hand i will state it through i mean vivian the law have been frightened of you in the past do you think it's a multinational paying off the law in this country well fracking kills us what i want to say and this you can't say that where all of our lives. yeah could go to jail if you protest well i don't know no i believe i will say anyway and find out but. i wanted to present this report. for teresa to repeat because it absolutely proves that fracking is much worse than calling for
the environment and they have been lying and pretending that fracking something that's kind of ok apart from the fact that it's just such an old idea and green energy is is so much change and it'll just then financially it's a disaster for this country. after. the health issues are just you know people are getting killed the health issues everything is just ridiculous you see dick illicitly dick. you mention the police there have been allegations of the police using excessive force against protesters in wood. hill. crossed a new road in particular that we've had problems with the police the police stood by and let private security come out on to the public highway and bashed.
car engine. aggressive aggressive behavior and tactics actually would say and in march like last night there is no fracking sayen. all there is an empty field and that empty field has now been injunction all the way round cameras everywhere and the injunction. even contest or try to find out what this injunction is about you will be liable for costs and if you read the wording on it its true. when only discovered the truth about this injunction that this is what was happening i asked to see a copy of it i had to provide my id my name and address too in your suits lawyers they sent me a seventeen hundred page document full of legally. and at the same time they put me
down as the name defendant on the injunction just for asking to see the injunction now we have a right in this country to make sure that we put ourselves on the right side of the law in this case you need to understand what that injunction mean if you will the newspaper eventually persuaded any australis one doorkeeper that said there's an imminent and real risk for the protesters that's why they shouldn't be able to protest fracking. i'm afraid from a p.r. company. to protect themselves from these giants with. this petrochemical company in the end let's face it what does this company want to do with scarce and all this misery that it wants to bring on the british people it wants to turn into plastics. there's only learns the size of texas float in the. mind that and. how how brave this is all over i think is stunned by the fact that despite you pre. free allowing yourselves into downing street journal out of the
letter to go forward you know unless they're frightened of all. over oversleep. well i think it's wonderful that she still responds to pull such a young age for what everybody should be responsible for because. it's a caleb that's a phenomenon i want to tell also say i'm so proud of just my son joel he's my son and both activists and assists speciality and without a hand i just think you know it's the protesters have been the most important of course thank god we've got all these people protesting eighty percent of the country joe one table you have police who machine guns not allowing you three and to deliver a letter what would you say to activists who want to protest. given there's an injunction and they make themselves liable for prison i mean the injunction hearing three day hearing is happening next week in the high cool we are seeking to remove
it and to have it thrown out by the judge we think it's fundamentally wrong in little. country big human rights to protest. and so problematic issues with these two persons on they might as well have addressed it to the. you know. that. comes with this we will fight this for the people who would say this will fight this right and we're not going to have this this monstrous industry unleashed on to the british people this scene here from would say this community coming together this is going to be repeated believes the village they're not going to be scared of white family. also going to lose this but. we don't want a sprite we don't need it we want renewable energy we want a future to. not armageddon with fossil fuel no i mean if it was right
over. just tell you all the thanks so much i'm going to read. you're talking about them not less. and this is the second place on the first ten minutes. and he says i wrote on the eighteenth of january two thousand and seventy and you did not write back that's how i feel disappointed because a lecture i got from felt like a lecture you would give to any person asking a question about fracking you did not say i could come and see you fracking will bring that a value of houses down number one and then he goes on the plan it will turn into sacks like that she said gas plan that is in case she didn't know to reset and it's made me think this is from fracking cause health issues to gas will go into the tap more very popular driven the population of england will
go down just know that it kills you say. pretty unless joe wanted to raise raise a bit frightened and sorry raise a bit frightened. thanks we consulted about the allegations made in this interview and they replied any us toys he supports people's right to peacefully protest and it's important to make clear that our injunctions do not prevent this however when purchased become unlawful we have a juicy of cats do all we can to ensure the safety of everyone on and around our sites including the protesters themselves blocking traffic including emergency vehicles is dangerous place resources placing is dangerous in these circumstances it was writes i'm responsible to see these injunctions and we're pleased that the courts the greats of them for this show we'll see on monday when one of these announces.
