but it can also help reduce our carbon emissions that's for u.k. pm drazen may want to criticize trump's environmental credentials after all the hands with him she backs a bomber support for fracking shale gas does have the potential to power economic growth is. thousands of jobs in the oil and gas industries and in other sectors and if i did new domestic energy so the jobs in energy for who will there 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 are nice little militants to overthrow the government of syria as in backing death squads to kill gadhafi in libya as in one us 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 nato 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 good 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 harry leslie smith he's been
internationally praised for his memoirs and just work and 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 underground before we go to the book we have a new defense secretary was remembered sunday you're a veteran how important is the military covenant between the state and protecting former servicemen and servicewomen the most important thing in the life of a service man it has to be i want to go. to the people where it's been a friend in the country for is. where. rich and he takes only a few years and years it must be taken care of when he comes back to asia home country i remember. soldiers after the end of the first world
war we're now going really dumb pollution around. in the. there were so many men who had been in the first world war or long legs and they didn't have a penny from their government no care whatsoever is this what we want to happen to our men is what you say to our defense secretary you voted against strengthening that government our share just get off the pot realize 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 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 you know extend we. had not no food in most cases my father was injured in the mines. and he had no jobs and there was no jobs even if you were healthy so consequently my sister and i really wound up around the back of hotel or got goblets cabin. trying to find some scraps of food we could. silence the painter in our stomach with. remember going to school in the morning when i was about five. my
stomach was growing so loudly america had heard no sharpener and there got no breakfast so all i could think of was that little class of the government suddenly realize my god 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. we have or pork children going to bed hungry in britain today then we had that time to go to the population of. it it's really a crime and it's not just a church dollar and you only have to look in the said institutions 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. could trade silently. because there are increasing every year in number. and it's a downer. insult to to the country and to send him to build your the rest of us especially. having to get other people to feed our citizens. and it's
belittling for those people it makes them feel you are not part of a country himym or they're simply. vibrant and shot 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 what 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 classes more strip magenta the situation i think we're. in such dire shape because of our one percent of our population who are. millions. of tourists room foreman and they 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 those 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 blame for austerity and for poverty was deflected against the forum of the refugees i don't know where on this fear of refugees came from. i wish i thought just as intelligent justice demanding of fair play and anyone else and not. overlayed demand that they knew
what they had and what they could. and they had a thought that maybe even forget that this is something which pains me greatly to her wish it were got the idea that because the coil of someone skin is different to ours they don't need the same tension that we need. don't need food to survive don't need a cover shelter over their head we have to realize we are or people or 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 know her 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. you probably know i'm going to trip the end of january housley end of january and visit all the hot spots of europe. just to find out what was happening there how political they had 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 to 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
more and. fiber since it would trump into power. no is no joke even age eighteen could be next. and when he does no page anyone in the well being shot in. the smith thank you after the break can labor finally shake off its blairite shackles and win back to scottish people we speak to wiser award nominated comic book pledge of democracy or about his support for richard leonard m.s.p. and the so-called radical policies of jeremy coleman and we speak to the councillor of edinburgh fourth ward canidae about why he would rather support of us all want to leave the scottish the western europe's largest socialist movement run by jeremy called and told us of all coming up about to have going underground.
apply for many clubs over the years so i know the gang and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch put a funnel school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money. to spend spend each other to twenty million up one player. it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy my great so well paul chance for. six it's going to. yeah. l. o l. o l. yeah well this is how the food.
people you've never heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank ok. send us an e-mail. welcome back in a week when sex scandals and secret offshore accounts of rock u.k. prime minister cabinet schools and 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 kings won the golden circle ugly rejuvenate something all of james ball and it's creating 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 and blockbuster had to kick ass and kings about who is lending his support to scottish labour's 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 it was a call i couldn't being subpoenaed by prosecutors he had some role in marvell comics bankrupt in you of course used to work for marvel comics yes he certainly is before maintained i think yeah i commend read about summer two thousand that i was there for decades i was like him are all and it was a mess with every two men my whole was on the bench a bankruptcy 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 you know in 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 in lots of the decades that genuinely deck it's your whole and scotland didn't start want to thank you specially querulously in country and yet at the last
election it was the only part of the country that since moved to the rate that the left was very you know it's you say over the last forty years to 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 the labor party so when we actually had a labor party that was to the rank of the land which is unthinkable in scotland you know actually it is like glass that we represent to the rate of london which is a strip process so i've always kind of had to have just always had this order listen. to the point but i couldn't and that watched the glee in excess as i couldn't vote for labor and it was an s.n.p. a couple of cents after the. or are you going to talk to a supporter of leonard's opponent in a second to both 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 jeremy
corbyn now yes interesting you know that after the fact a lot of people are saying that i was but yeah you know later the past as they've gotten loans because it was recently said it was kind of. a fight it was going on with a little intelligence i think it's been it was going on as well the not stupid man then who with us was going to lead in the disasters that were going on for all that was the whole region so i don't know i mean i would guess that the principals out it can do this that believes in things i didn't let alone i was as close as i've seen to that certainly in my adult life 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 is not much of a national you know at the moment of a conservative government's us not we're not like we can 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 how do you like them and as you know i love the idea the guts of the past that things are plentiful you know but in reality we haven't seen a lot of the stuff carried through it you know for example scotland after you know the promise of education you know has tumbled in the chops internationally and sends a lead let 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 so i don't know i mean i think doesn't it lend to the s.n.p. bit the reality isn't always that i mean let me have scotland i can see it the cities that you know and look at council for years has been a complete disaster to the point where more often than not the public get acid and it means that any more you know the police started as of course nuclear fuel that you see leonard says he's too long in the tooth to be a good. binny's dad can we trust where they doesn't flip flop and never forget that tony blair first met with tony benn for advice about becoming the leader of the labor party. i don't know i mean i thought that was the road along.
the union got it my brother actually was a friend. brother was educational so that i think much of that was actually to please my mother my father left and you know he's the real the let me know what i believe it was a fantastic p.r. mind you know but i think that's what led us to in the years and even taken sports and lifted sticks and sand but though i think much of learned if you are comfortable well you mentioned a bit earlier but we have a lot of as and people additions that come on this program who seem 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 that i think it moved on you know later stuff that certain elements of those nine ten live shots to the left a little 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 what these guys are talking to today wind farm initiatives and the today wind farm initiatives the s. and p. which i am as as you know as actually betty at their tractor if i'm going to set a couple of elections i would suggest ante up with the disappearance of local elections that so many people in the s.n.p. took but just when you look up close of what's going on yes i mean even in legacy a council level that's what that actually was there with the d.l.c. back in the eighty's as a fleet you know there's a public services have been slashed here you know we're we've seen so had i think stuff but it's kind of ten with some fantastic p.r. but there's really awful things going on in the background and sense of quality electives and just tell me very briefly about how you are individually drained it is of the save certainly one community the community you originally grew up in down there and i want you don't be ambitious but be realistic as well you know some focus in this one the area that i love and all that about mandela there out of my life that sort of i want to focus on the hazing us that i grew up in and my plan is
to basically take pieces of land that are out there are limits and draw seal it and so on with an estate that nobody's used for thirty years and else try to hose and it with the profits from the private houses and this that and the local schools and churches and playgroups and all that's going to stop you know the pensioners of the church and such things of normality and so forth and then reinvest banished capsule and more houses so what i do is you know migration of young families from the area in the last year for the skill numbers of more than half and trying to go in families back into the area they know the money back into the area lose a lot. myself and use all the old money to invest in the area so the local cops you know the local pensioners all he's going to go all treat surely you wouldn't believe it will be three sentiment for the children you know they'll be three pensioners lunches all are going to suffer just what me the areas they score school and if it works as well as i think it will be five years i'm going to 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 day that number group leader of the scottish labor party cammy thanks so much for coming on to why did alice b. the labor leader in scotland i think honest things i'm challenge for people in scotland a commitment to their right to their foreign interests and six fifty thousand young children no poverty source to the premium games and pleasures out of these well before an honest fellow 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 are they not start mr sanders over the hope that every employer in scotland at least basically every weekend i think i miss the summer i need to make up to that as far
as possible and accepting the norm so why no mention they have climate change and so as a manifesto of his opponent richard leonard i think you see of course my isis one of this express a whole range of things that's misleader values now i'm sure the part that would be similarly transport i call it the holy land talks and the highest earners in this country to pay for that who don't quite as well you know grimy until i'm a jane is the reason why there's no mention of it because he voted against the requirement of a more extensive set of care conditions to be met prior to contend for fracking. i don't think we know that unassisted but commitment is a whole range of issues across scotland and i'm sure if he becomes their leader they were viable and of course we will see much more commitment to climate change to poverty to me going to test under schools much spirit in scotland all right well why do you think that then mccluskey the leader of britain's biggest trade union is backing the opponent saying that len it has something genuinely new on offer.
is a sport if it come today china's got support for means of trust go see it goes forward from last year all titians across the country people are selfish they were good leaders a number of elected members through caruso's across all of forests over scotland and commended box i notice that he is the best man for those are your your unison member right which candidate are they backing around unison and you know you saw a membership or some you know honestly bought by some eons mentioned by others and you know i hope from the bottom of that you can use on this quote from local councillors and peace any species we see that i don't cross and went to become the leader of the skull and explosive device i now that's on a sour the tide from the political uncertainty in federal government down here in westminster so i went as he campaigned for tax transparency which are in the way going to paradise papers obviously a big issue the herald and that is that he had shares in an offshore tax haven based software company how can we trust to. so i think if people only honest and
spoke to the past listen to us through the leader values their way she wants to be like those cause they would bite why he's a member of parliament why he's going to keep people he's been challenging to any chance that's why we're not necessarily dire 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 were for miniature services you're not hearing from the city and i'm not hearing from either 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 they voted for the divide the destruction of africa's the capital richest country libya he voted for mommy and destroying libya . i don't think of any sort of organise process idea but i don't think that would be the seed of only kind of this if we take today looking to vote for i don't think either of you everything that effort started this leading scotland. and the first minister i think will see
a change in all these key things that people can send their kids to school they declined in each year such as were seen after health and social care and into sunday at last do something a bit overly yabut i mean he he voted to spend british money on bombs for syria not even some tories voted to develop their bag islam is the rebels against the government of syria i don't pretend everybody is me doing systems in the past i mean i know that i'm a space comment in the discourse liberal party i'm first minister and you deliver all the commitments that he's made in his manifesto not just for all his money he supported corbin twenty fifteen call for jeremy coleman's resignation in twenty sixteen and now he says he supports jeremy corbett how can we trust him on anything i don't think he's made a firm commitment that it was the first mr sassiness was he was he went into the scottish labor unfortunately to get jenny cotton elected just a minister and given what's been happening today the media out there and this is like scotland how where was the commitment if he said he wanted coleman's
resignation last year i don't think he's farmable you see you know you want to move over to a minister of the u.k. and especially if you have got us in this legally to go and i'm the first minister he will be doing everything he can will only mean other people to get your record might just next famous of 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 the 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 black like matter movement bill than he would have tried to actually do a few wednesday the day the welsh labor politician and i began to mastermind of the creation of britain's universal health care system the n.h.s. . it was full of.
