visiting the elite israeli illegally occupied part of syria's golan it you know it is a goal and it's really an extension of that wine and about these contacts you have got is that it with all these different people why do you think giving away six was incompetent here didn't sufficiently have the surveillance of a british cabinet minister or m i six didn't know that a cabinet minister was on the illegally or. it is it is if they don't know this is you know sit back if we know and they keep silent it's even worse so i believe definitely be should know she is a minister she's a company member and these al qaeda linked militants that are in the golan are it during this period yes they are there are you know it is boiling area there is a war there and there are some. islamic state members who actually infiltrate that region there and even there is a contact between the israeli and these terrorist group and the other side believe those voters because that would mean that the british cabinet minister was in
effect supporting. militants trying to overthrow us out of syria she met them there we don't know maybe without without knowing there are you know members of al qaeda or members of the islamic state so it is a breach of security breach to be honest and beside it is that diplomatic breach between its government breach so why she was allowed i'll tell you because she believes that there is really are the closest ally of the british government in front of the british government and they thought this is a legal thing if there is a me celebrated that bill for a declaration with binyamin netanyahu instead of commemorating this kind of the clinician which caused a lot of wars in that part of the world and she said we are proud to establish so why our cabinet member you know wouldn't go that far with the israeli government over the israeli minister maintain contact with them behind the back of the government i believe it is actually it is not because this is this is the british government the british government that. concept of government is completely taking
the israeli side ok well saudi arabia at the moment. where is refusing to say whether he is working with israel at the moment on what any plans it has but let's just go to yemen first because unicef save the children we've had them all on this show saying the only way that aid could come in through is this port in yemen and now there's a blockade. the problem is. the yemeni launched a missile a ballistic missile against the heart and it was actually intercepted by. me size which saudi arabia has a lot in its arsenal but how do we have been decided to actually to strengthen their blockade of all the older. and see completely so in order to punish him and for that under the pretext that they don't want that the yemeni whole thing is
to receive missiles from iran from iraq but you know there are sure of course denying that it is merely an early prince mohammed bin said a man in yemen he said clearly he's the crown prince of saudi arabia he said clearly you know we launched this war because we don't want another hizbullah in. yemen it means a thing is in his will or in yemen i don't think there's any hezbollah yes there is a horse and those horses are in particular part of yemen they are yemenis you know silicon valley we know that there are certainly in beirut because there are m.p.'s in the lebanese part of the nutley under the as well about what do you think that dog trump would have had to ok the elves went from this air apparent to the saudi or talk as regards the threats now being made very clearly to lebanon after the southern exit of president hariri the situation in lebanon is deteriorating and
yemen is heading towards you would could be a war that american the talking start talk for the first time about that marrying. nineteen eighty three when a suicide attacks against the base in beirut killed two hundred and forty many's so this start talking about hizbollah the spear of terrorism in the. region and this stabilizing the whole planet so it seems now that the saudi joining the camp and we heard the prince mohammed bin prince saying clearly visible law is training and smuggling missiles whose is in yemen and there are threatening the stability of saudi arabia and we have to cut them the head of the sneak in lebanon so i wouldn't be surprised actually that if saudi arabia and israel launch
a war against hezbollah in lebanon because how the saudi actually will go and bomb we have to go either through syria or through israel and this is the only way i believe the area of syria to really fought with defacto in a just war but then what does i mean i want to get into egypt in a second here. aside from any mediation what is iran syria iraq. going to do in the face of this kind of sort of rush going to definitely there is a strong alliance now this strong alliance consists of iran syria iraq. and could be turkey beside his partner and if the lottery of qatar even yeah but if this war and the war erupted in lebanon it will be a major draw and we don't know yet what this is you know the position of russia the position of egypt in this war so there may be an outright. says he is opposed to
war with iran or as well or yes he you know but he did not have the power anymore resurgent to give them the egypt has a very clear policy they don't want to interfere in wars in the middle east when the saudi put pressure on them to join them on the war to join the coalition so do coalition the war in yemen you know see you know what i would not repeat the biggest mistake in the sixty's when egypt sent troops to yemen and more than twenty five thousand egyptian soldiers were killed so he doesn't want to send troops because he said several times and even said that said that and hosni mubarak the egyptian army to protect egypt not to involve in other people territory and we have to remember egypt has a huge problem and it's worse than borders would leave here and they have a huge war taking place in sinai and in the top of that you know egypt is
actually about towards a war against if you will be or because of that another dam which will divert a little bit although all yes so this is a problem egypt is around as well i mean with russia and china were arguably failed in any kind of international responsibility when it came to the destruction of africa's richest the capital libya yeah if russia and china don't do anything when do you see the mass conflagration especially as you say prevent to recuse itself as well out of this this thing possibly complicated battle. it is very complicated pattern look at the stories in libya no but the managed to control the situation in libya the american the british the french they sent warplanes need to replace they destroyed libya and then you know left and the country is in a huge mess nobody can actually rectify this very briefly ever could we see
blowback if groups were hit in lebanon on the streets of london could this wide i mean we're talking about asymmetric war be in of the problem is you know yeah now we have terrorism. and you know end up in the shape of. islamic state or isis so if they are going the american bazaar would be maybe another country going to bomb hezbollah to put and that terrorist list how can you guarantee that it has a book you want me to be a tourist i would be a terrorist and i would bomb longer i would. i would bomb new york so it was out there a lot of your going to do to put me in that there is less i am already on the terrorists list you are bombing me so i want to defend myself this is the problem so we will have a sunny terrorism and actually out there is a can we afford that this is a problem why those people are igniting war on terrorism just only how did we get
to a position where it appears that the iranian revolutionary guard corps can decide who the british foreign secretary is everyone's waiting for their response over the. sentencing of a british subject in iran because of something boris johnson said you know i think the iranian are very wise and they are very we'll calculated people they are not actually rushing their decision and i believe they will use the probe i see and i wouldn't be surprised if they released this british citizen in order to try to avoid a problem with the british government but that doesn't mean that the british government will be a friend of iran so it could be after very least they could join the american if they have a plan. or a road map to bombay i think the british will be in board with they will join any american adventure or against his this is for sure i don't believe that any british government will take any decision which contradicts the american plans or american wars they joined the american in afghanistan the join the american war in iraq and
the british second biggest also and the biggest troops after the american to iraq and afghanistan so i wouldn't be surprised if the british government did the see if there is a problem or a problem or a war against hezbollah in lebanon. thank you after the break forty six years ago to the day of the release of fear and loathing in las vegas we speak which illustrate a real step with the documentary filmmaker jerry levy about political cartoons of fighting the security guards with dress codes and the headlines current prime minister on the ropes and the potential prime minister in the wings all the civil coming up about to of going underground. talking about what's next why stop me from getting this close to the white house i'm with you. why not ban the color pink one hour stretch i should be shame to the
terror of london because i'm a traitor brick me although we'll put up with my lifetime of this sort of nonsense you don't scare me and i'll continue to voice my opinion i'll continue to speak out i'm in good company i'm in good company you going with me you want yours this is we are freezing cold. i think. the old situations are coming back and the stand. is they are not in favor of the nato is coming. to the border for russia but on the other side i think it think a bank the old repression of confrontation that's a mistake of the west especially by the americans and also on the other side.
i fear that we may see the iranians taking the first steps towards restarting and use your program which will only further ratchet up tensions and further increase the risk of war that's the big danger here this is not just about chile. automatically putting the united states on a course of. welcome back by the ticket take the ride forty six years ago today people first read those words from hunter s. thompson as iconic novel fear and loathing in las vegas later adapted into the cult film starring johnny depp thomson style of writing blended fact with drug addled fiction perverse political reality with gross monstrosities and frenzied excitement in what became known as gonzo journalism ralph steadman visualize those stories traveling with him dressed thompson illustrating is twisted ideas and painting is political attacks steadman and documentary filmmaker carrie levy came on the show
to talk about their new book critical critters but rove also had a few stories about one dress thompson the vietnam war you would you lived in america during and i went over there for the great moment of us were killed maybe a million dollars because of a weak president or him and. i didn't know i was going to meet undertones and made a difference because i. i never thought anyone like him was around i mean a hundred songs is not of fear and loathing in las vegas but how did he influence your work because your work is well you know he was babies influenced arguably politics in this country i did i'm just going to you well. i think i influenced him and the funny thing about him he had then why he done it first of all i had a i had a little goatee beard a time i'm no hope. and i look like not and i'm not going to allow that to look at him because he's in
a. zero. sum in. english and yes. oh i like that because of any couldn't some profs i said. should you know be look at me and we look for each other for three days before we looked up and pressure him and he said do. you look at any reese's. well i have i said you bet. well i did once early missed in one hundred fifty two. and i won twenty one but to bob on it two shillings you see and. the ripple at the vet yeah there's no well maybe you want to race and i said ok so we watched the race and it won easily you pretty unit is white when you put it dull and something
so ok i'll put a dollar on something kind of a moment just come on that one but i knew i didn't put it on this one and last i said that's why i don't bet you see because i was going to be a sale i like that one and if you don't breath it you know we wins just kind of life you know it was more interested in the stories about the at the authority stuff i mean with a period of time when only gonzo journalism could get through establishment media bias yeah we actually got into the press through the press through the press room. and be friended the security man and i'm watched things from under that on like they're. stuck i was held and so i was until they held him restrained him when we watched. the. nine hundred ninety two a nineteen one thousand six seventy and then when i seventy good god they did have the wart on the seventy four second you're going to the j.f.k.
assassination woodward you will no no that was after before but watching what particular now we we were watching the political negotiate the convention. from i did drawings i said from from under the armpit opposite curity meant like i was like that and i was going at what i was going to draw and so forth and that's how i did that i mean i did it with a sense of restraint had to be restrained i had to be restrained in doing it and so. doing you know drawings i went under said what do you do i like to meet my friends at the. pendennis club and conducting this world with a friend of mine so that stopped that filthy scribbling by the way put together it's a filthy how to drop. we got there and then i thought it is
a couple of scribble you know and then it was a go get the wife of one of his friends and i subjoin that and see the. island perrier how i'm petty and. given that you took it into moving us all richard nixon's wife. do you think that when you were down there political cartoon as an odd thing is it in america it was if i had to join a vietnam war do you think you changed it ruffled a few feathers with it or i don't know i did you realise clearly in the political cartoons we see in british papers today you're right and you know i don't see in them i would say they give you i see no no i see things i think i recognise that. i'm of see it suddenly i see things that i've done in a funny sort of way and i don't fit as they all say in many interviews most of the political cartoons of the day that they're your debt but i mean do you think your
guardians are to visceral for the british newspapers at the moment no i should hope they'd be allowed we're not i mean i'm very up to find the filthiest yet the most disgusting manifestation of human thought if i can come up with that and they are new of the dirty water technique is beginning to look like that you know that i could then if i could only find recognition in some of the people that are walking this planet today in the dirty for the filth if you like the slimy where this bit was related some sort of wouldn't believe i mean the newspapers and media are owned by a very few people especially our newspapers difficult for they were to able to go they were there on the way out to use paper owners are on the way out people will take obviously if you were a political cartoonist for the times you wouldn't if you were caught in a group of murdoch it why not and keep your job why not you might be restrictive it
no i make it pretty. i make him. make him look very pretty to be funny to do something that he just the funny about him as he's got as it come in the name she was the rolling stone mick jagger will serial only whore in be nicer to him looking like jerry hall rather than with jerry hall you know that so it is trump pretty and i mean you're a bit mean or are you paying you i don't know temple school skin. you know one of them is no no there's a like a big baby and he's and it's rather lettering is is dire poses like on an american because you know it's not play. what he's been doing that all the throughout his bread hardly started with him and he was falling everything you know the whole nest was now mine what he puts on i mean the nest he sits in i mean
that's another one i haven't done yet i think i just thought of it that the inside of a nest of trouble and what he gets up to in his nest is a is a pretty foul thought charlie coming out of the parents claim a deal was too late for this book because yeah it jumps decision presume we not something going to help these animals know you also know that they're getting rid of a lot of the marine protection in america. there is such a view of wildlife that i find absolutely frightening i mean in a way trump is the perfect president for our times you know everybody's wish for change on certain things and we need to change but we've gone to an extreme direction it probably needs to flow back the other way and then find a new you know you may or may not agree with french politics but they've found new politics new party to taking forward is a banker i should say i mean i don't know that that's an interesting thing but at
least somebody is trying to do something different you got today most in spain there are a new politics in this country it's very hard to get anything new going it's the same old status quo it's right left it's tory it's labor and i think we are crying out for something like the guns a vacation party why not you know somebody is somebody that would make a bit of a difference i'd love him as prime minister kerry livery ralph seven thank you thank you you thank. well now to do something extra as is a liberal democrat member of parliament and bitter lembit armistice day to day where we commemorate those who fought for our freedom freedom of speech even and. erika's boss is being threatened with prison yes unless r.t. america registers as a foreign agent i kid you not the piece of legislation from nineteen thirty eight probably not intended for this purpose designed to get the nazis funnily enough
aromasin now used against r.t. make of that what you will after and that's because of the story from c.n.n. about eight other television stations that banned here nor in america at least yes and c.n.n. report radiant state t.v. welcomes boris johnson's confession over british prisoner what's behind this is a bit of a mixed message from boris not for the first time it turns out that nods and in zachary raps cliff was said to be teaching journalism during her visit in the country but lo and behold she was there on holiday two completely different stories and iran earlier reigning in their prosecutions as a jesus boy either way probably not the best thing for a british politician to get involved on an individual case not just a british politician the homes or integrity sorry the foreign secretary got that wrong and that is going to be for example difference of course could get it wrong on the other side now know the i.r.g.c. iranian revolutionary guard or they can choose who our next one secretary is all they have to do is say borat
a comment made us do this and that's the end of it's extraordinary where the power is i'm not sure boris will come down on this one but it certainly hasn't helped his credibility ok let's go to the credibility of her majesty's government here in the metro that yes the metro reports even leaders preparing for total collapse of to reserve government strong and stable we were told maybe not the view of our european charms here's a great quote from one european leader we're not told who it was and who says there is the great difficulty of the leadership in. great britain which is more and more fragile britain is very weak and the weakness of the reason may makes negotiations very difficult you can hear a wry smile behind those well it's certainly a lot of people saying to reason it's got storms of them and they're causing difficult ripples abroad what do you think of the latest on the secret negotiations with jeremy cool bit of you in situ my love this that apparently allegedly real toolbox we'll be talking about let me that is prime minister and then the two for the fun and the excitement. had accused in the group. dedicated between.
the ground that are complaining about it would really literally sound to be a growth and they don't want to pay it so they're waiting decades a lot of those soldiers time and they will have to pay. to get the bill for the movie. that's already entrenched. that's an octopus this giant squid penetrating every facet of the economy and it's being financed by money that they can borrow. zero percent and buy anything without any. regulations bumping into them whatsoever so then you apply that to maybe five or six time companies and five years from now you can just five or six their share prices will be exorbitant like they're
