4:07 pm
turn into an animal here but staying human that's harder some say a life sentence is worse than the death penalty. and i've been here for seventeen years and i've never heard anyone say they don't regret it or they'd kill more. than i regret it everything is lost the years go by your health worsens everything passes by they are show you that you were wrong totally wrong you can't do that. dimitri saluted his family his father his mother and his brother he was twenty now he's forty five. we watch t.v. we see people who have committed two or three murders good we are guilty before the public but if. one inmate where to work in the wood shop or on the suing machines they earn money with which they can buy extra food personal items make calls and pay compensation to their victims they even have visits four times

a year i think that. if you take the period when we came into solvent and compare it to know the conditions are entirely different prisoners now have special terminals where they could review their cases complain about abuse or apply for work they have a library school church which was. built and painted by the inmates themselves they can also take walks sort of. the exercise yard isn't anything to write home about but every prisoner has the right to spend an hour and out of here every day walking around exercising war just sitting still so long as they don't mind being watched god's check on everyone every fifteen minutes in cell cameras and monitors twenty four seven and there's three

doors to every cell it's easy to see why no one has ever escaped from the black dolphin and for most of the uni sure way out is in a coffin or i guess the of. from solar let's russia. uncertainty hangs over germany's political future after talks to form a three party coalition government collapsed on monday peter all over now examines what caused the negotiations to fail and what options remain for chancellor merkel . the day after the bundestag election in september angela merkel said that she was confident that by christmas she would have a ruling coalition government in place or fast forward through weeks of torture a sit times negotiations with the green party and the pro-business free democrats
4:10 pm
while the wheels of that coalition health fell off well and truly with christie and lynn of the free democrats delivering the killer blow the evident one is that we will not abandon our voters for a policy with which we are not convinced it is better not to govern than to govern badly ingrained differences between the parties on key issues. just hours but a minority government would be unstable at best and what's in the chamber it's also worth noting that this would be a first in modern fit the profile of the german voters so where does this little fresh elections. could well prove to be a storm she doesn't whether to keep that's really fun for somebody has got to be responsible for that the federal chancellor created this situation she's been in power for what feels like a hundred years and now she should be asking herself maybe i have something to do with this situation. mrs merkel has failed it's time for her now to take
4:11 pm
a step back. that night the end of the merkel era began europe's biggest economy is heading into uncharted territory with current polling suggesting that a new ballot wouldn't return any results too different from what we had in september it does seem that there is no immediate solution to the current instability germany is facing and of course the implications that has for the why do european union peter all of a r.t. berlin well after it was a ninth's the talks had failed the german president called on all parties to work towards producing a stable government this is the moment when all those involved should pause and reconsider this in all the parties voted in the parliament are committed to the common good they are serving our land i expect from everyone your willingness to talk in order to facilitate the formation of a government in the near future that i'm going to markell has already indicated her
4:12 pm
readiness to renew this so-called grand coalition with the social democrats this system that's governed germany for the past four years the chancellor saying is the alliance has proved very effective on the social democrats with martin shultz up the helm seem to have softened their position to they had previously refused to deal with merkel again. i would be surprised if we had fresh elections but marcos apparently stated that we are going to have them so far she has always clung to power and i thought she would have sought another negotiate a solution that everybody is supporting just f.t.p. but in the end to to make a coalition agree the f.t.p. the c.s.u. the c.d.o. was a very very unlikely construct a very strange construct that of course cannot work and we can see that the country is it from turmoil here and this is indeed to the unprecedented situation it's
4:13 pm
going to be new elections i'm pretty certain the f.t.p. and probably also the i.o.c. the opposition party that will gain because this. is quite a silent significant part of the population that's once a change in the immigration policies their review of one of the most extraordinary stories of the past month the all the story in the lebanese prime minister and all the topsy turvy is going on that's coming up after the break plus the rest of the week's big stories stay with our teachers to. make this manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the ruling class is protect themselves. with the final merry go round
