star as a bid to topple donald trump is backed by his fellow loser mike bloomberg who spent even more trying to buy his way into the hearts of voters the sum is so offensively large in fact it even had emerson b.c. confused somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money he spent on every american dollar at that incredible way of putting it it's true it's just irving well it's a lot less disturbing if you get the math right quick arithmetic lesson guys 500000000. and divided by $327000000.00 is roughly $1.00 while dollars not 1000000 this aside though stuff and bloomberg combined spent more than the $750000000.00 on their campaigns before super tuesday that's more than all other democratic
5:07 pm
candidates combined and as much as the hillary clinton campaign officially cost back in 2016 including primaries and the had to had with trump yet all these guys zillions failed to secure even one delegate for a stamp while bloomberg got $61.00 and in case anyone from m.s.n. b.c. he is watching it's math time again and that's more than $8000000.00 a delegate you clearly can't buy the election to be some rich guy but if you're completely out of touch with the american people if you are so arrogant to spend this amount of money it's not going to get you very far the democratic party which is already of billionaires and corporatists and and large banks and what have you joe biden being that a credit card bank in canada they like not like their their followers their voters
5:08 pm
to notice because they try to present themselves as the party of the people obviously they're not but so they would probably like to keep that under wraps. and while joe biden is excited to have these wallets now the poor in money into his campaign it's difficult to say why according to the mother reports russia spent an unbelievable $100000.00 on online ads remember in tom stylez world there was enough to buy trump presidency his hundreds of millions of dollars didn't even get him if someone's policies just aren't worth a penny some invisible mysterious russians who spent a $100000.00 on facebook and it's only 16 which somehow got the president elected well now we've got mike bloomberg who spent half a $1000000000.00 on ads looking to really going to spend that money and he could have paid donald trump to leave office not i think the president would he could have bought american samoa. thousands of spanish students have rallied in

madrid against sex education plans by the right wing brock's party demonstrators chanted feminist slogans and carried banners denouncing the so-called parental veto on iraq says proposal parents would have to give permission for children to join school workshops perceived as ideological that would include classes on sex education gender and other issues like climate change so far only the region of mirka has introduced the plans it's been condemned by the national government but local authorities are refusing to repeal the move we will not do it because it says the government does not believe in what we believe in namely the freedom of fathers and mothers. a homophobic family does not have the right to make their children harmful because well parental authority cannot be confused with property. and in the u k l g b t education has sparked a furious backlash as well starting from september classes covering the issue will
5:10 pm
become compulsory there and that has triggered protests among parents particularly from religious communities who put the issues up for debate. i think is absolutely right that parents do have a right to teach their own children according to their beliefs but the education system has a responsibility to give children a comprehensive education and to give them information to safeguard their health and welfare to say that the state must come in and muscle in an area which parents be doing extremely well for thousands of years is just simply it's not good for the primary responsibility in fact rest for the parents and parents do have the right to opt out of of sex education a majority of parents think it is the responsibility of the schools to do that they're happy and content for that and if you look around the world in every country where there. anti sex wars and low cost sex and leisure bridge occasion the levels of teenage pregnancies and abortions are much much

5:16 pm
a side note not sure why prince charming gets a make over but it's still ok for cinderella to be stitched into a cool. in the blue dress it was particularly tight when i was trying to dance i didn't have the capacity to breathe to support the physicality and so i had to keep taking breaks and loosen in the corset then latin materialized flying carpet and a genie in a cave yes please i was still clinging to the hope that the cinderella saga is just a teething problem no now princess jasmine it always been a favorite of mine is such a bad ass the princess turning down this handsome prince is left right and center but no that wasn't enough for disney they just have to make her sultan you want to be sultan. has been preparing for this my whole life now i watched all that and i stayed silent but normal because now they've come for the jewel in the disney

5:18 pm
chops off her locks. poof gone baba i know i mean i really. i just don't know how much more i can take. i would have told you you're also counseled oh. oops spoiler alert don't worry though that still the little man made. i'm sure disney's got some great plans to ruin those for children all around the world. a regional council in the u.k. has been accused of spreading transphobia over international women's day celebrations with more on the story here shoddy edwards. international women's day is coming up it's a day to mark the struggle for the right to vote and the fight for equal rights but this year the run up to march the 8th has been inadvertently embroiled in a trance rao sefton council in liverpool has been pressurised into removing flags being flown outside its town hall is simply red woman noun adult female and while
5:19 pm
that might be the definition in the oxford english dictionary it's been deemed trans phobic the flag flying at the moment is a hostile trans phobic dog whistle recognizes a symbol and brand of one of britain's most outspoken and visible trans antagonists and leader of the trans phobic hate group moments later the facts were removed but the council saying it didn't realize the controversial messaging they were being asked to display we have been made aware of the potential issue regarding the messaging on the flag and southport town halls and have taken them down we have a proud history of supporting l g b t q plus rights across the borough we continue to support all members of all communities and want to look like international women's day had been cancelled later they decided to reinstate the celebration replacing the old flag with a different one we went to find out if people really find the statement on the flag offensive why would it be offensive if you like. just because you have
5:20 pm
a flag that represents women and doesn't insult anyone else. empowers women i think it's a woman. definition of. i know it probably needs to. take a lot of political things to talk about a woman i don't think there should be a label and i don't think there should be a definition genders all religions or anything but the problem i have is with the word transform the word for. something i don't think that's the case and i don't think the word is being brandished around is issued. you know 2. sets of other agendas well what the time to build on it seems like you cause on the bridge anything without offending people or at least having opinions polls apart this is a very subjective a very relative issue it's an opinion based where you call it flag offensive on
5:21 pm
a tweet because we use the dictionary definition the problem when you give in because of anonymous or angry tweets when you give in you give that platform power nobody should be giving it power to any voice that is meant to silence for wrongful reasons and so we don't want to give those voices any more justification just because they don't like something because then it's going to cause everybody who wants to shut down a company shut down a cause or shut down any kind of truth or opinion that they don't agree with it's going to give them more power to continue lambaste in these defamatory slanderous remarks on twitter and social media which has been very very harmful to people we have now been entrenched in this culture of fear we're everybody wants us to be afraid where we cannot say anything and what that does when there is such a pervasive culture of fear we're going to be labeled transpo record zina phobic or racist or homophobic or whatever it is. and lastly we bring you some news in

5:27 pm

5:29 pm
that's usually associated around any i.m.f. program in any most of the countries but that's that's not what it is. it's $6000000000.00 plus there's a multilateral funding involved so in reality it's about $35.00 to $38000000000.00 and it's about reducing deficits increasing pakistan stack space improving the exporters competitiveness improving that we we manage or have managed exchange rate in the past it's about opening up and liberalizing they call me so it's a host of other things well we've had that kind of neo liberal talking here in britain for years we're talking about nationalizing our railways in energy resources are you playing off beijing against washington your 6700000000 to the chinese communist party why not really go she ate with them run. other than the washington i am half the loans that we have from from china often misunderstood the yard 1st of all decomposed just a very small fraction maybe less than 10 percent of pakistan's overall debt but for
