our economic growth initiative. thousands of jobs in the oil and gas industries and in other sectors and why did new domestic energy so with jobs in energy for who will they be any humans left to use the energy that is the scientific truth of climate change really helped by news like this a newly released federal climate report suggests it's extremely unlikely that rising temperatures are caused by humans a federal report is in us federal report that iraq had weapons of mass destruction as in nato nations should support al qaeda and isis linked militants to overthrow the government of syria as in backing death squads to kill gadhafi in libya as in one u.s. federal report the thought it proved this very t.v. show is able to destroy us democracy and put trump into the white house against the wishes of the american people perhaps got twenty three delegates in bonn germany would do better in saving the world from climate change if they attack the root causes not fossil fuels not fossil fuel companies not federal reports but the entire new liberal system itself a neoliberal system arguably supported by nature warfare which was referenced at
the senator off in london by this group of u.k. veterans in the past twenty four hours i was brought up to believe that britain was a great country and we were involved in just wars serving in afghanistan really hammered home to me the futility of armed conflict i was. annoyed with the truth of the british television i think it's important that we counter the mess and propaganda that the military push out about these wars the myth. that anything which the military participates in is a noble cause well one thousand nine hundred four year old world war two veteran who has not been wearing his red poppy in this month because of what he sees as the co-option of remembrance by neo liberalism is harriers the smith he's been internationally praised for his memoirs and for his latest work of don't let my past be your future it's a passionate denunciation of neo liberal values which u.k. labor leader jeremy corbyn says shows him to be a vital and. powerful voice speaking across the generations about the struggle for
a just society he joins me now harry welcome back to going on the ground before we go to the book we have a new defense secretary was remembered sunday your a veteran how important is the military covenant between the state and protecting former servicemen and servicewomen just the most important thing in the life of a serviceman has to be i want to go. to the people where it's been defending their country in the last. legs. they didn't have a penny from their government you know care whatsoever what we want to happen to our men is what you say to our defense secretary you wrote it again just get off the pot. maybe one day you will have to be out there and face
about. where you like to come back and. no protection at home tell me about the title of the book first wife feel it's so important to water earth as it were not to have the future be your past it's really. my life from the very beginning and the sense. that my early life of course was brutal. no extend we. had not no food emotional cations my father was injured in the mines. and he had no job and there was no job been even if you were healthy. so consequently my sister and i usually round up around the back of hotel or god goblins cabin. trying to find some scraps of food we could. silence the
painter in our stomach with. i remember going to school in the morning when i was about to. move the government suddenly realised that my dear good to give indigent children school ok well obviously this is that you took that away but people who support capitalism this government they would say you can't compare those stories to today we shouldn't be able to compare than those who unfortunately see them returning and rechanneling very quickly. or pork children going to bed hungry in britain today then we had that time to go to the population is bigger. it's really a crime and it's not just
a church dollar and you only have to look in the city streets and see the. men and women lined up on the sidewalks because they can't afford a place to put their head down. the country is going to the dogs you know one of the new appointments after the resignation of the disgraced defense secretary said we should celebrate food banks because they show and we have a conservative minister on this program saying that it shows the big society. the kids should silently. because they're increasing every year in number. and it's a downer insult to to the country and to us as individuals that the rest of the world rationally. having to get other people to feed our citizens. and it's
belittling for those people it makes them feel who are not part of a country himym or simply. vibing al shaab they're surviving it was a journey corbin talks about class a lot which hasn't been talked about for a few generations obviously people are going to say but class divisions are worse in your childhood than they are today we shouldn't be talking about class i think we should be talking about class because class is more stripped magenta the situation i think we're. in shutdown a huge hit because of our one percent of our population who are. minions. to orange rule for them and they'd sure that they're getting near what they call their due
but in the meantime. all our small cities and towns are not getting the taxes which have been diverted from the government which would use post taxes to build new schools and roadways and everything else which is necessary for a stable society but arguably the bottom of that pyramid are refugees from nature wars around the world are there any echoes of the nine hundred thirty is when the blame for austerity of a poverty was deflected against the foreigner the refugees i don't know where on this fear of refugees came from. i wish i found them just as intelligent just was demanding of fair play as anyone else
and not overly demanding they knew what they had and what they could exert and they had a thought that maybe even forget that this is something which pinch me greatly has she to have got the idea that because coiled up someone's skin is different to ours that they don't need to shame to change that we need. they don't need food to survive don't need a cover shelter over their head. you have to realize we are or people are individual we should be able to live in peace and harmony and leg know all the color of our skin. that's become one of the biggest barriers towards civilization that's ever been no think well i know you visit a catholic where they were refugees from these nature wars in the middle east
what's your next book going to be about. planning on another venture of course you probably know i'm going to trip the end of january hausler january and visit all the hot spots of europe. just to find out what was happening and how political that become how cities were faring if the people were content or. becoming obnoxious rebellious. and then i want to come back and write a book. after the book to go should the government and tell them what this country leads to make sure that we don't get involved in another war because it is just around the corner. it's become more and
alligators on the list of poverty and crime. members of my close. street racing. the night. the best place in the world. welcome back in a week when sex scandals and secret offshore accounts of rock u.k. prime minister resumes cabinet schools of m.p.'s on their autumn recess now returned today to arguably a shaken not stirred house of commons and it said it was around the world the sequel film has been the golden circle arguably rejuvenate something of james bond its creator the president of the world mark miller is actively supporting the
so-called hard left candidate in saturday's elections to decide who leads the scottish arm of western europe's largest socialist movement the scottish labor party joining me now is mark miller creator of the comic about an blockbuster hit caste and kings about who is lending his support to scottish labor to richard leonard m.s.p. mark thanks so much for coming on going underground just before we start what do you make of this trump regulatory affairs advisor call i couldn't being subpoenaed by prosecutors he had some role in manuel comix bankruptcy and you of course used to work for marvel comics yes couple of years before my time i think yeah i commend read about summer two thousand. and it was a mess with every team and my whole. as of the divine perhaps you know they were failing through chapter eleven and i was part of that scene cleaned up but it was incredible i mean how you got marlon brando though you know when this guy was just one of those people that unfortunately it was it was there as well your work has amassed popular appeal obviously bestseller lists and so on and now jumping into
the political arena and what i hear you supporting richard leonard as a leader of the scottish labor party i think is the most exciting thing to happen up here and lots of the decades are genuinely deck it's a whole and scotland didn't start to think it's traditionally where left in country and yet in the last election it was the only part of the country that seems moved to the rate that the left is very artsy you said the last forty years would be a better last one country. and you know we were represented you know we had this a little succession of people in charge of let the labor party up you know so that when we actually had a labor party that was to the rank of the land which is i think people in scotland do actually is like glass that we represent to the rate of london which as to process so i've always kind of had not just always had this order alicia's slightly but. to the point that i couldn't and the watch that live in excess as i couldn't vote for labor and it was an s.n.p. a couple of cents after the iraq war we're going to talk to
a supporter of leonard's opponent in a second birth supporters of mr sauer say that we should ignore the fact that he voted for wars like that on libya and syria and that he too would support your record and now yes interesting you know that after the fact a lot of people are saying that i was about it yeah you know later the fast as they got a moment because it was recently said it was kind of you. find it was going on without military intelligence i think it's been it was going on as well and they're not stupid men then who were this was going to lead in the disasters that will be unfold across the whole region so i don't know i mean i would guess that the principals out it can do this that believe. in things i didn't let alone i was as close as i've seen to that certainly in my adult life so yeah yeah but on the other hand he'll be leading a scottish labor party's policy is to continue to support weapons of mass destruction on the clay trident so how is that going to outflank the s.n.p.
well. realistically it's not much of a national you know at the moment of a conservative government's us not we're not there to begin to do anything about i don't know what they don't get probably not let's and then start unpacking ness that's most of the time for that it's the s.n.p. how do you know you like them and as you know i love the idea that got sort of the benzo principle you know but in reality we haven't seen a lot of stuck out into it you know for example scotland after you know the promise of education you know has tumbled ownerships internationally and sends a lead to scotland just the one of the best places in the world knows little place as you can imagine it's number eighteen or something in the shops and sought i don't know i mean i think doesn't get into the s.n.p. bit reality isn't always that i mean let me have scotland i can see the cities that you know and look at councils for years has been a complete disaster to the point where more often than not the public ghassan it means that any more you know the police the starts of us of course nuclear fuels that you see leonard says he's too long in the tooth to be
a gold minis that we trust with a dozen flip flopper never forget that dhoni blair first met with tony benn for advice about becoming the leader of the labor party. right up there with your own. is a union dad my brother actually a friend has a union brother was in education after that i think rather than actually replace my mother motor left and you know he's the leader of the let me win or i mean blair it was a fantastic program if he was so confident about labor north of the border never outflanking them on the left how did you come to be that the scottish labor body would have the right of labor down south in london. i think it was just that we were a little bit behind the times you know we were still dancing to ninety's chirpy or really have been done so the thing that moved on you know later started surrender to those nine ten live shots to the left of us but scotland just take time you know and that that sort of right wing group and the scottish labor party that they're
taking up on the pocket and it's completely urgent to pass a membership so there's an awful lot of people who just don't listen franchise that voters were just going along i don't believe in with these guys are talking about. the ceiling farm initiatives the s. and the which are innocent if you don't do this as actually betty at their tracks or if i'm going to set a couple of elections i would suggest end up with the disappearance of local elections that so many people in the s.n.p. to but just when you look up close of what's going on yes i mean even the latest city council level and fantastic p.r. but there's really awful things going on in the save certainly one community the community you originally grew up in down there and i want the measures to be realistic as well you know some focus in on this one the idea that a lot and all that about mandela they're out of my life so i want to force and hazing us that i grew up in and my plan is to be out there are limits and draw sealant and so on with an estate that nobody's used for fifty years and else try to hose and it with the profits from the try houses and this that and the local
schools and churches and playgroups and all that's going to stop you know for the pensioners and the church and so simplest things of normality and so forth and then reinvest banished capsule and more houses so what i do is there's been a migration of young families from the area for the last thirty years with the skill numbers of more than half and trying to bring families back into the area they know the money back into the area lose a lot of money myself and use old old money to invest in the area so the local cops you know the local pensioners all these going to go all the treats surely you wouldn't believe it will be three sentiment for the children you know they'll be three tensioners lunches are going to starbucks what me the areas they sparkle and if it works as well as i think it will be five years and. they move on to their next step and it isn't about miller thank you well that was comic book legend mark millar and why the new leader of the scottish labor party should be richard leonard now i'm joined from the scottish capital by a supporter of the other candidate and the thought they have a councillor cammy days and were group leader of the scottish labor party cammy
thanks so much for coming on to why should be the labor leader in scotland i think honest things are challenge for people in scotland a commitment to their right to their foreign n.g.o.s and to take fifty thousand young children know poverty saw us to the premium games and coaches out there is well we support an honest or. leaders coach their body and obviously first minister scotland when we come to the subject of poverty pay you've heard about the allegations that his family company didn't even pay the living wage there aren't enough fairness numbers over the hope that every employer in scotland at least basically every weekend i think i missed the summer i need to make up for it was possible and except in the long so why no mention they have climate change and so as a manifesto of his opponent richard leonard does i think you see of course my i don't want to face express over into things that's misleader values now i'm sure part of
the sin of really transport call me call it conditions to be met by the content for fracking i don't think we know the necessity to but missed the whole range of issues across scotland and i'm sure if he becomes their leader a labor party and of course we will see much more commitment it seems to over eight to me going to this underscores not going to scotland all right well i do think that then mccluskey the leader of britain's biggest trade union is backing the opponent saying that limit has something genuinely new on offer. i think if you use a sport if it come today shyness go support for means of trust go see it goes forward from last year of all titians across the country people like myself as they were good leaders a number of elected members sure counsellors across all the forests over scotland and commend to botanists i think he is the best man for the job your you're in unison member right which candidate are they backing down unison and united so our membership of both and your allies will be bought by some eons mentioned by others
and you know i hope from the bottom of the unions on this quote from local councillors and piece in this piece we will see the writing process and when to become the leader of the skull and expose of the body here in westminster so i went as he campaigned for tax transparency which are in the wake of the paradise papers obviously a big issue in the herald and that is that he had shares in an offshore tax haven based software company how can we trust him so i think if people only honest and spoke to him personally listen to his truly liberal values there why he wants to do it goes by why he's a member of parliament why he's going to keep people he's been challenging the any chance that's why you're not necessarily joe though of course the issues that he is maybe not unhappily know slaves like most of us but i think he still wears commitment and it's a sort of form poverty for some fifty thousand young people reform initiate a service that you're not hearing from the s.c. and i'm not hearing from any other candidate i think honestly can that they discredit to some of the biggest values that labor people believe in you think he's
a commitment to labor values when say voted for the divide the destruction of africa's the capital richest country libya he voted for a moment in destroying libya. i don't think any sort of organized process idea about doing that would be to see the kind of this it would take to get him to vote for i don't think either of you everything that ever but it's done basically didn't go and. the first minutes i think we'll see you know change and all these key things that people can send their kids to school they declined in each year so just was he voted to spend british money on doing this is another possibility and even to live out all the commitments so yes mediums might have a so not just for corbin twenty fifteen call for jeremy go but i think he's made a firm commitment that it was well the source misuse us you know minus those he was the liaison to the scottish labor unfortunately to get jenny cotton elected just right minister and given what's been happening today to be out there on a system like scotland how credible is the commitment he said he wanted coleman's
resignation last year i think he's a formidable you see you know you want to move over to mr yuki and if i speak you know get honest and there's a labor leader in scotland on the forcefulness so he will be doing everything he can hold i mean other people to get to me color might just explain minister in the u.k. now that thank you and that's it for the show will be back on wednesday nearly three years to the day of the fatal shooting of twelve year old tommy rice by us police will be speaking to award winning rolling stone journalist matt taibbi about his new book i can't breathe detailing the life and death of eric garner and the birth of the blacklight smatter movement bill than he would have tried to actually do a few wednesday the day the welsh labor politician and i began to muster mike to the creation of britain's universal health care system the n.h.s. was born.
one hundred years ago russia was consumed by red. solution and unprecedented violence is not an understatement to say the russian revolution will also be could a top was a defining moment of the twentieth century how did it change russian. politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or something i want to press. you to go on to the press this is what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters and not out. there so.
they call me a useful idiot i mean you called me a useful idiot a useful idiot useful idiots go expressing my opinions on t.v. there's thousands of us doing it behind his record is a simple strategy we attack persons instead of talking about the arc of what's next why stop there will be any from getting this close to the white house i'm with a group code pink why not ban the color pink one hour stretch beyond the right i should be sent to the town because i'm going to try to break me on the wheel but what i like trying to do this sort of nonsense you don't scare me want to scare us 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're going to me you want to do this because we'll freethinkers.
i fear that we may see the iranians taking the first steps towards restarting the nuclear program which will only further ratchet up tensions and further increased interest will be one big danger here this is not just about killing the deal this is automatically putting the united states on it was a military confrontation with the region. the last leg of donald trump's asian to seize the u.s. leader now in the philippines where he's been met nonetheless with violent protests against his visit. but you know he would be a member of either in britain or a group of u.s. leaders again offering to to help mediate the region's divisive conflict since he dives into the south china sea.
