as a publicity stunt because he was dissatisfied with his salary. aleem maqbool reports from chicago. to the edge of a no—deal abiss. i'm done. i very much hope that in time they will feel able to come back into the conservative family, it isa which is a very, very broad church. it is a humiliating fall from grace. i'm joined now by academic used two appearances on the red maya goodfellow and journalist tom harwood. carpet, actorjussie smollet has now good evening. a question that... been snapped for his mugshot. come, follow on. which party comes arrested for concocting a fake hate out worse? it is not good for any crime against him. party. it is going to be difficult # sometimes you feel insecure... is best known to us audiences for to lose mps. party. it is going to be difficult to lose mp5. the conservative party at the party of government. they are playing a sensitive, slightly in control of brexit negotiations troubled r&b singer in the tv series and the economic policy of the last empire. this is exactly wherejussie smollet says he was attacked in the few years. it is damaging. losing early hours of the morning when he had gone out to get food. he says two men punched him, subjected him mps few years. it is damaging. losing mp5 for few years. it is damaging. losing mps forany few years. it is damaging. losing mp5 for any party is not a good to racist and homophobic abuse, even look. we have to remember the at one point shouting at him that context. the labour party have lost this was make america great again eight mps and they are expected to country, suggesting they'd been lose up to 30. the conservatives
trump supporters. my manager was still on the phone so i picked up have only lost three mps who are the phone and i said, brandon, and basically independence anyway. the he said, "what's going on?" i said i labour party has driven out these wasjumped. i mps through the seismic shift it has he said, "what's going on?" i said i was jumped. i saw there was a rope around my neck. the president been under. there is no question himself was among many who came out that the labour party has come off worst from this. the polls bear this to condemn the attack. himself was among many who came out to condemn the attacklj himself was among many who came out to condemn the attack. i think it is horrible, doesn't get worse. but out. the conservative party have an police now say two brothers, seen 8% lead. you have here buying ski masks and head of out. the conservative party have an 896 lead. you have 30 days are under to go to brexit, what do the achieve the incident, were paid by smollet by leaving their parties at this himself to stage the attack because, they say, he was unhappy with his point? i think this is part of the problem. it seems to be a bad time salary. empire actorjussie smollet took advantage of the pain and anger to do this. if they had these of racism to promote his career. i'm objections, and particularly these conservative mps, why did they not left hanging my head and asking why. jump conservative mps, why did they not jump ship earlier? the question should be why are we not having why would anyone, especially an by—elections? why do they think they can stand down from the party but african—american man, use the symbolism of a news to make false remain as mp5 when they stood in an election on the party manifestos and accusations? hate crimes have seen a as representatives of these parties? dramatic increase in the us of late very few people in the country can
but the police and rights advocates name theirmp, they alike have talked of their dismay at very few people in the country can name their mp, they know who to vote for in terms of a party. now we are the harm jussie smollet has done to seeing mps who have said we should those who really have suffered. be having some kind of second and we can go live to chicago referendum, we should go back to the and speak to aleem now. people and the people should be trusted to make sensible decisions. they have made a decision in terms we heard the superintendent eddie of stepping down from their parties johnson basically, presumably, voicing the question that so many and they are not going back to the have. chicago is a city which people to ask them what they think about that. what are these grapples with its racial politicians stand for? it is not a inequalities are how on earth is game of personalities, it is this news being consumed there? yes, policies that affect people's lives and every single day. what do they he said it very strongly and stand for now they have left their passionately as well that we have parties? we do not know and they do over the last couple of years, in not seem to answer those questions. terms of homophobic attacks and to do it at this time is incredibly racist attacks, we have seen many messy but also to do it in this way, more reported to the police and, so, which seems like they are not standing for much at all is not a to have something like this to undermine those who are trying to do good look for them. tom, same something about it is a real shock question to you, what do they stand for people, like advocates rights for? it is clear for labour groups. there are attacks that have defectors, if you will, had a broad taken place groups. there are attacks that have ta ken place here groups. there are attacks that have taken place here in chicago over the range of issues that they disagreed
last six months, and advocates have with their party on, brexit, said it has been incredibly damaging. jussie smollet is due to anti—semitism, trident, brought appear in the courthouse in the next economic policy, nationalisation, 20 minutes or so but, given the kind they had drifted from the party on these issues. or rather the labour of stunning evidence the police were party has drifted from the position talking about, it'll be difficult to see how he continues to insist this in 2010 when most of these mps got attack did happen. the police say he elected. the conservative party, it inflicted his own injuries in what is spurious the reasons that were appears to be a totally fictitious posed for the defections. what we attack. they say they've even recovered a cheque with which he sell is three conservative mps, all paid to make men to stage it. so, he who are upset over brexit, but are might still be sticking to his story trying to claim the conservative but a lot of people just shaking party have been under the same process over the last three years as their heads, including a lot of people who really stood by him when the labour party, which is patently he first came out with the news that nonsense. the conservative party he first came out with the news that he had been subjected to this entered the election in 2017 attack. very high profile people in denouncing both the socialist left the world of music, politicians, and and the libertarian right. the even donald trump condemning the commentators where seeing theresa attack. a lot of people now feeling may has parked her tanks on labour's very embarrassed they did that. what lawn. we saw that. the tax burden is
happens to him now? presumably he is the highest it has been in 50 years. at the centre of an almighty we have never spent more on social backlash, presumably. indeed. it was services... the problem here is the an intriguing statement that was labour party has not drifted to the given by police earlier in the day, left since 2010, what has happened is that there has been a member led who said they'd hoped jussie smollet movement encouraging it to moved to didn't do anything dangerous. and the left. this idea that this new there are some who have expressed group of mps represents a shift, concerns about his mental health, these are some of the politicians how he comes back from something so humiliating, like this. and tries to who broke politics in the first place. anna soubry said she recover from it. there humiliating, like this. and tries to recoverfrom it. there are humiliating, like this. and tries to recover from it. there are a supported austerity, which is damage humiliating, like this. and tries to recoverfrom it. there are a lot humiliating, like this. and tries to recover from it. there are a lot of people who say that he should be to people up and down the country. we have seen an increase in food punished for what he's done. he can banks and a huge increase in get for the crimes he has been homelessness, these are policy charged with a sentence of up to decisions that were made by a government who have been in power three years. he could escape with just probation and a large fine, for nine years. anna soubry is though. there are those whether or saying she supports those decisions. by saying she supports those decisions. by saying they are trying to fix not he has got mental health issues wa nt to not he has got mental health issues politics, i would like to see some want to make sure that others don't reflection of how they help to break do anything like this ever again. it in the first place. i will agree
thank you very much for updating us with you on the hypocrisy of anna live from chicago. well, as we mentioned, this case soubry. she said she supported the caused an outcry from politicians, including presidential hopefuls coalition government and john like kamala harris who tweeted: osborne. now she is saying theresa may is too right—wing. theresa may's party has abandoned austerity. it is to the left of the previous cameron government. now anna soubry and the others are saying they are trying to claim it is in the grip of the and similar language european research group, the was used by corey booker. right—wing of the tory party. i am but today the president sorry, right—wing of the tory party. i am sorry, we are right—wing of the tory party. i am sorry, we are heading for a soft shot back saying... brexit. theresa may is pushing the deal that would keep us trapped in a "jussie smollett, what about maga and the tens customs union for ever, a higher of millions of people you insulted with your racist degree of alignment with the eu. and dangerous comments! ? this is a centrist position that the #maga." for more on the political conservative party has right now. we fallout from this, we're joined by ron christie, only have a few seconds left. this former advisor to president george w bush. is the end of it? you think more run, as if the hoax wasn't bad labourmps, is the end of it? you think more labour mps, will more conservative score? it is very unlikely that one enough, this rush tojudgment run, as if the hoax wasn't bad enough, this rush to judgment on twitter feed said. what would be of two conservative mps will go, but
they will be more labour mps. there the political cost, if peoplejust sat back for five minutes, took a may be marked. it is not the end of it but i think the spike and deep breath and zipped it?|j excitement will fizzle out when we sat back for five minutes, took a deep breath and zipped it? i don't think it is possible in this climate see they have very little important where people are tweeting. donald policies to offer the people. thank trump has 58 million twitter you both very much. a very good followers. they want to be part of the story and narrative rather than conversation. thank you. it does not taking a reflective look and saying, tell us anything of where the middle ground is. doi taking a reflective look and saying, do i know all the facts? we know what the facts are. politically the president of the european speaking, many of these politicians rush tojudgment commission, jean—claude juncker, speaking, many of these politicians rush to judgment to try to be on the has said he's "not very optimistic" politically correct side as opposed about the outcome of brexit, after his latest to the factual one. then they find talks with theresa may. the prime minister claimed that themselves on the wrong side of the progress had been made. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has fa cts , themselves on the wrong side of the facts, doesn't that have a political also been in brussels for talks backlash? i think it will, with the eu's chief negotiator, michel barnier. he said there was a serious especially when all these democratic risk of a no—deal brexit candidates who really wanted to wrap and accused mrs may of deliberately themselves around and say, look, we running down the clock. are supportive, this actually happened and what a terrible labour leaderjeremy corbyn has tragedy. it is all a hoax and a lot attacked the government for its decision to strip shamima begum of her of constituents and voters will look british citizenship . at these people and say do i want to the british teenager who joined so called islamic state. put my trust into someone who is so the labour leader described it quick tojudge without as a ‘very extreme manoeuve.‘ put my trust into someone who is so quick to judge without knowing the fa cts ? quick to judge without knowing the mr corbyn also called facts? what do you think, ron, that for the 19—year—old,
who recently gave birth, for some of those on the most to receive some support and be extreme end of donald trump's allowed back to britain. support base, this presumably the first details of a possible reinforces their preconceptions that trade deal between the us and china are starting to emerge — as the latest round of high—level the bigotry, the racial hatred in america is overblown by the left? talks get under way in washington. the talks come a week ahead good evening to you, matthew. i of the march deadline the trump administration has set for a deal think that's right and i'd further to avoid higher tariffs. critics say the trade war add that unfortunately the real political blow out here is your is a threat to the global economy. going to have people, many president trump's long—time conservatives, who say, see, i told political ally, roger stone, you, this is what happens, those on is appearing in court over instagram posts which appeared to threaten thejudge the left make things up, they put overseeing his criminal trial. mr stone is facing charges he lied this narrative out. unfortunately to congress during an investigation into alleged russian meddling what is going to happen when someone in the 2016 election. has a real case of harassment or an now to bangladesh where emergency workers have ended rescue efforts ethnic attack? is that person not after a huge fire tore through a multi—story building going to come forward? there are in the capital dhaka. 78 people were killed. strong ramifications out of this. it's thought part of the building — which was reduced to a charred shell yeah, that is a good point, isn't — was used to store chemicals. it, ron, those political the area where the fire is known ramifications and the backlash, the for its narrow lanes damage it does to people who and dense population.
genuinely do have a grievance. i mean, do you see any of these gwyneth paltrow has counter—sued incidents, and there have been a lot of them now, actually amounting to a a retired optometrist who has taken legal action against her over restraint? no make. and, sadly, this a skiing accident in 2016. is where the president is at the last month, 72—year—old terry sanderson sued highest level of power, the paltrow claiming 3 point one milion dollars in damages. he said the actress knocked him down comforter injury. given how polarising donald trump has been, on a ski slope in utah, this would be a great opportunity leaving him with a brain injury for him to speak to the nation and and broken ribs. paltrow says that he was at fault to say we are all americans and we and his lawsuit is an "attempt to must come together and we mustn't exploit her celebrity and wealth." tolerate bigotry or anything that she is seeking a symbolic infringes upon the rights of others but unfortunately the president has taken to twitter when he should take $1 in damages. to the airwaves to try to calm a we know nothing is black and white in politics. polarising situation. thank you for so it is with some relief that we turn to something that joining us. the boss ordered his top officials really is black and white. to fly in from around the world let's talk about zebras. to deal with what he called an "evil" at the heart because scientists do now of their organisation. know why zebras have the boss is the pope. black and white stripes — the officials, bishops in the catholic church. the evil, of course, the children their pattern seems to confuse flies and others who were sexually abused over decades by clergy. — and the way they figured it out is rather simplistic. they dressed up horses a four—day summit is now under way. pope francis says the world expects
to look like zebras — "concrete measures" to tackle the continuing scandal. ahead of the gathering survivors i love this. of child sexual abuse gave their testimony. and they studied the reaction of flies around these incognito horses compared to other zebras, and horses. one of the authors of the study is martin how — and he's in our studio in bristol. it was dark. and i noticed a movie good evening to you, martin. it projector with the wheels going around and around, and a picture up front. it was very interesting so i doesn't look very scientific. it may not look scientific but it was walked up to the machine, and there certainly very effective. it was was the priest sitting by it. and he incredible how strong the effect called me to sit on his lap. and i was. as soon as incredible how strong the effect was. as soon as you incredible how strong the effect was. as soon as you add zebra stripes to a horse, the number of did because he was father. and fathers were good, and godlike. and visits by horseflies drops so fathers were good, and godlike. and soi dramatically. our editor today, fathers were good, and godlike. and so i sat on his lap and i was anna, it is her last programme. watching the wheels go around and thanks for all the great work you the pictures showing, and it was do. anna is wearing black and white very exciting. and then he puts his stripes. we took a picture of her hands in my regina. and everything went black for me. i split. i went earlier... we are getting laughter now she realises she is on the television. if anna went down and away. and i don't know how long i stood beside the horses, with the was even there with him. those flies avoid her? absolutely. we were
details are very disturbing. doing the research wearing black clothing, we tended to get bitten the keynote speech was given by cardinal luis tagle more often than when we were wearing of the philippines. he broke into tears saying... patterned clothing. zebra stripes "the wounds of the recent are the best protection from being crisis carried a memory of innocents suffering". pope francis has said for years that he wants to tackle bitten from horseflies. nowi are the best protection from being bitten from horseflies. now! can say no flies on anna. i always the scandal once and for all. he created his own commission to investigate abuse wa nted say no flies on anna. i always wanted to say that. if you have in the church back in 2014. it didn't get very far. stripes on zebras, why don't horses this is what he said as this summit opened. evolve to have stripes as well? that isa evolve to have stripes as well? that is a really good question. it is translation: i ask the holy spirit to support us in these days and help difficult to answer. what i can say us transform this evil into an opportunity is across the natural range of the for understanding and purification. habitat of zebra in africa, being may the virgin mary enlighten us to try to heal grave wounds bitten by a horseplay is notjust an that the paedophilia scandal has caused to both the annoyance , bitten by a horseplay is notjust an annoyance, can be a matter of life young and believers. and death. some of the horseflies carry nasty diseases. it is in the and joining us now from rome zebras best interest not to get is father thomas reese, a jesuit priest who is a senior bitten. that has been the analyst for religion news service. evolutionary driver. our domestic horses, they can tolerate being good evening to you. i wonder what bitten to a certain extent without is different this time? what is the risk of death. are laughing at going to change? well, i think
the risk of death. are laughing at the pictures of the horses with what's different this time is the striped courts on. it is fetching but what is the application of the pope is called —— has called science? what do you now do with it? together these bishops from all over the obvious application is animal the world, and he has brought them to rome to emphasise to them that welfare. in horse stables. it is an this is a serious crisis, it is a effective way to protect horses from biting flies without making them worldwide crisis, and he wants them wear heavy coats that can be to do something about it. he wants uncomfortable in summer. another thing that i am quite excited about them to enforce the church's rule that no priest who's ever abused can is the potential application for computer systems. in our modern age, act as a priest again. he's got to we are dealing with more and more be out of the ministry, out of the robotic systems that use cameras to priesthood. i think that this is extremely important. the story we navigate, driverless cars and so on. just heard, from that survivor of i like the idea of investigating whether stripes cause problems for these systems as well. that is abuse, it just tears just heard, from that survivor of abuse, itjust tears your guts out. this is why the pope's told the fascinating. i already had a bishops before they came to rome question in my mind. surely if you put a court on a horse, the flies that they should listen to the victims of abuse in their countries. can't get the horse, with or without and the meeting itself here in rome stripes. that is true. the main started with a video of five motivation is to work out why zebras
survivors of abuse telling their we re motivation is to work out why zebras were stripey. having said that, courts have to be thick to prevent stories. this is what's going to bates from horseflies. they can be motivate bishops to go home and do what they need to do. what i find quite uncomfortable. if you can astonishing and what i find shocking offer the horse he later caught that as my breathable in summer, is that, yes, that was a hopefully they will be more particularly alarming piece of testimony, but it is in the first time we've heard that. ijust wonder comfortable. — — hopefully they will be more comfortable. —— offer a lighter jacket. trying out the stripes this why the bishops have to be called to rome to take this seriously, to do summer. you can't borrow anna's top. something about it. well, i think still to come... that the bishops in the united still to come — it's the biggest states, in europe, you know... they night on hollywood's calender and whilst the red carpet won't be rolled out until the award ceremony on sunday. have heard these stories, the people we'll be in la — finding out just what it takes in pews have heard these stories, to actually win an oscar. and they are not going to hear not advisors to the government on climate change, say gas boilers and cookers should be banned much new at this meeting they in new homes, within six years. haven't been talking about for the so, what can we do to adapt our homes? last 20 years. but we are not the our correspondent, emma vardy, entire church. the problem is there has been finding out. are many bishops in asia, africa and
keeping things snug is the key latin america who think this is only to making the energy we do use go so much further. a western problem, an american in future, developers could be forbidden from connecting homes problem, an english—speaking to the gas grid entirely. problem. and we don't have that electric has the advantage that it can be produced sustainably. problem. and we don't have that problem in our country or it is wind turbines... very, very few. they don't realise the reason they've heard so few stories is because only a few paul designed this house to use very victims have come forward. in their little energy at all. there are little extra upfront countries, it is, you know, costs, but pay back longer term. it lends itself perfectly culturally almost impossible for a to social housing. the good thing about it is, victim to come forward. because it it is using so little energy that the idea of fuel disgraces theirfamily. poverty is gone. victim to come forward. because it disgraces their family. it is where the report says all homes would need we we re disgraces their family. it is where we were 50 years ago. and the pope to produce zero emissions by 2050. wa nts we were 50 years ago. and the pope that means making new builds well wants them not to make these same insulated and air—tight, with triple glazed windows. m ista kes wants them not to make these same mistakes the american bishops made. and ensuring water efficiency, father, that is a good point, how do you get a full accounting of the with low flow and taps. scale of this? and how do you hold these priests accountable when the church has been part of the it also means using ec—friendly construction techniques like timber frames instead of concrete or steel. cover—up? meanwhile, there is also a lot church has been part of the cover-up? absolutely. and this was you can do to improve existing the problem in the united states and
homes, such as putting in better insulation, installing low carbon heating in europe, where bishopsjust moved systems such as heat pumps, and replacing existing appliances priests from place to place. now we with energy efficient ones. have procedures in the church that and like the new builds, you can conserve water using devices to reduce the flow makes that impossible. in the united states for exa m ple if makes that impossible. in the united states for example if a priest is on showers and taps. accused of abuse, that has to be reported immediately to the police. the home builders' you know, in some states, if i don't federation banning gas do that, i am committing a crime! i in new homes is unrealistic can go to jail! that's good. we need because alternative energy sources have their limitations. those recommending the more drastic measures say the government should those kinds of rules. secondly, if a also reinstate incentives for the simple things homeowners can priest is accused of abuse, it has do, like insulating your loft. to go, the accusation has to go to a the government's pledged to phase lay review board, they have to be out installations of the most un—environmentally friendly heating by the 2020s. and has said it will consider the recommendations, which are urging them reported on the investigation that ta kes reported on the investigation that takes place, they study the evidence and if they think it is credible, if to go much further. they think that the person is guilty, they make a recommendation to the bishop that this priest be before the lord of the rings, and even before the hobbit, removed from ministry. and these are jrr tolkien had his paintings. and maps. and even a secret language. people on these review boards that
if the bishop doesn't listen to them, they are going to go public. now, a new exhibition these are the things that are now at the morgan library in new york brings together all of the work that protecting children in the united led up to creating his states, which is why the number of abuse cases is way, way down than its the largest such collection of tolkien material in years, what it was in the 1970s. time to and the bbc went to take a look. ta ke what it was in the 1970s. time to take that global, it sounds like! father thomas reese, let's hope it can be taken global, thank you for joining us this evening from rome. this exhibition sets out to explore there are numerous reports that the life ofjrr tolkien the special counsel robert mueller has wrapped up his investigation and how his experiences into russian election meddling and is getting ready to submit his findings perhaps as early as next week. informed his creative process. of course, even if he does, and that's a big if, there's no guarantee we'll from tolkien's childhood in rural be told what's in it. england, he was inspired that will be up to the attorney by the english landscape. general william barr. even members of congress may and as a ten—year—old boy, not be granted access. ron christie is still with us. he was making water colours of trees they're going to have to tell people of trees and river streams. something, aren't they? they going to have to tell them something, that developed into his teen years when he started jane, but legally they are not under experimenting more with visions of distant mountain landscapes and dark forests. obligation to do so, so there's been
