our world: denmark's efforts to better integrate its migrant population are attracting controversy at home, and abroad, with the government designating 29 housing areas as ‘migrant ghettos‘. denmark, a country consistently ranked as one of the happiest in the world. but recent controversy over immigration, and a newly introduced ghetto plan threatens to damage its happy image. we would say that this is actually institutionalised racism. i have come to denmark as they face a general election. bbc, is danish immigration policy racist! find out what impact these new laws are having. unless you are white, you are not danish. and what the future looks like for denmark's
4:32 am
500,000 immigrants.” future looks like for denmark's 500,000 immigrants. i think we would actually like to help these children. we have a real problem and we don't want to have those problems like you see around the world. i have come to the city hall square in copenhagen. it is the celebration of ifta r, in copenhagen. it is the celebration of iftar, the communal breaking of the end of ramadan. it is supposed to bea the end of ramadan. it is supposed to be a low—key peaceful event. it is the city square and it is com pletely is the city square and it is completely surrounded by the police. and i'm not sure if their presence at this scale is comforting or worrying. the police are here because alongside the eid celebration is one of denmark's far right politicians. we think that
4:33 am
since there are 51 right politicians. we think that since there are 5! muslim countries in the world, and only one danish country, which is denmark, it is only right that day and should remain in denmark and the muslims should go back to one of the 51 muslim countries. we don't want it in denmark at all, we want it in the countries that the great president this is bbc world news, i'm reged ahmad. our top stories: trump has spoken about. iraq, iran, the chinese leader appeals to president trump for dialogue syria, libya... i have been here rather than confrontation, every year and this is the first time in many years that i have seen over trade — we'll be live in osaka this many cops. they have turned it as xijinping and mr trump into a media circus with their hate meet at the 620 summit. switch. this man is a dane of meanwhile president trump has made an offer to meet the north korean leader, kim jong—un, at the de—militarised destanee descent. he has seen a zone with south korea. recent rise in intolerance. what do you think he is doing —— pakistani it's taken 20 years of talks — descent. he is speaking to the worst but the eu and a group of south american countries finally clinch an historic free trade deal. in all of the people. the hate speech that he is doing, if you and nearly 50 years since would take out the muslim and put in the apollo 11 moon landing — nasa opens up the original mission control room to the public.
4:34 am
due —— put injew, you how —— would take out the muslim and put in due “ put injew, you how —— would have a second world war rhetoric. tonight the far right supporters are desecrating the koran and the plan is to burn it. recent changes to blasphemy law means free speech is protected no matter how inflammatory it is. last year this event had a handful of police, cops i heard, but because of you look around, there is police and press everywhere, how do you feel about that? free speech only matters if you do something that really offends other people. if you only state something that eve ryo ne you only state something that everyone agrees with, and free speech does not matter, then no—one will react hostile if that is what eve ryo ne will react hostile if that is what everyone agrees with. what are you thinking? he has got a lot of insane followers, and most of them have a small sense of alcohol in their breath, and now he has moved over
4:35 am
there so he can burn the koran. but there so he can burn the koran. but the real aim of this stunt is to put his political party on the map at a crucial moment in danish politics. his political party on the map at a crucial moment in danish politicsi would say nine out of ten were just like... we were in shock, but frankly i don't care because i have my religion in my heart and i have my religion in my heart and i have l my religion in my heart and i have my holy koran in my home, as long as he is not touching that, he is not my problem. but he might be my problem on wednesday. wednesday is election day. denmark will choose a government and give its verdict on the country's controversial ghetto plan. last year the government designated 29 inner—city areas as ghettos. a ghetto was where more than half of an area's population is
4:36 am
from an immigrant background. and also, where crime and unemployment are higher than average. and levels of education and income are below average. 6hetto plan ill new laws for these areas. —— brought in new laws. pa rents would these areas. —— brought in new laws. parents would be forced to send their children to danish nursery schools from the age of one. and police can impose higher penalties for crimes committed in these areas. the policy was announced by the right and centre—right i have come to one of copenhagen‘s
4:37 am
best—known ghettos. 80% of the people who live here are immigrants 0!’ people who live here are immigrants or their descendants.” people who live here are immigrants or their descendants. i am in one of one of the poorest and biggest ghettos in copenhagen and this is their community centre where the community have come together to ask questions about the ghetto plan from the politicians. crime and unemployment are higher than the national average here. today was my collection candidates also they want to improve things. this woman is standing for denmark's opposition ce ntre—left standing for denmark's opposition centre—left social democrat party. traditionally supportive of underprivileged communities and architect of the country's generous welfare system. co ntroversially architect of the country's generous welfare system. controversially the party has decided to defend the government's tough new immigration policies. hot off the ghetto plan is to re m ove
4:38 am
policies. hot off the ghetto plan is to remove —— part of the ghetto plan is to remove some residence and create a more mixed community. she went to a school where her classmates were from ghettos, and her argument is that kids should not be brought up in a place where the majority of adults around them are a minority. her words are not going down well. residents resent their neighbourhood being called a ghetto.
4:39 am
some of the residents are leaving. not pleased by what they have heard.
4:40 am
what was it that made you think that they were being racist? however these points that you made received today, because it didn't seem received today, because it didn't seem like... no, i wasn't received today, because it didn't seem like... no, iwasn't a received today, because it didn't seem like... no, i wasn't a popular one today, not at all. but i think it is very important that i stand up for what my party believes in and i hope people respect that. when you are doing some of your comments, a whole bunch of people left the room, they accused the ghetto plan of being racist and being anti—immigrant, anti— muslim. being racist and being anti—immigrant, anti— muslimlj think the opposite. i think we would
4:41 am
actually like to help these children. we have a real problem and we don't want to have those big ghettos like you see around the world, we don't want to have them, we would like to live together. but whatever the intention, critics of the ghetto plan point two the small print, which they say makes it inherently divisive. we have a situation where the law says it is not such a good thing to be unemployed or to be a poor or have low degree of education, and is a really bad thing to be of non—western origin. really bad thing to be of non-western origin. so basically, if there is a high rate of crime, unemployment, lower rate of education and income, but you are not 50% or more immigrants, the area will not be considered a ghetto. exactly. i mean, what you are saying sounds to me like racism within the danish system. we would say that
4:42 am
this is actually institutionalised racism. back in mjoelnerparken, two blocks have been reserved for new residents. as part of the ghetto plan's programme of changing the area's social profile. they are currently social housing plans. this woman has brought up herfamily here. i have to lie here for ten hours every night to get my blood cleaned. i used to be able to survive just doing cleaned. i used to be able to survivejust doing this, cleaned. i used to be able to survive just doing this, but now i have to go to the hospital. she has to go to her local hospital for her dialysis twice a week. she and her husband have been given a year to move out from their home. we have lived here 28 years. 28 years you have lived here! all my three girls we re have lived here! all my three girls were raised here, and the last one is getting married next month. so they are... so this place means more to you than just a home. it is the
4:43 am
family home. but when they move us out they are saying, you can't even stay in this area. you've got to go further afield, because we don't wa nt to further afield, because we don't want to many foreigners in one area. that is why we are moving you out on the first place, so all the foreigners are scattered. why would it be so bad for you to move out, further away from this neighbourhood. for me, there is lots of reasons. hospital is five minutes away. the only that does dialysis here. the other one is a0 minutes away. number two, my here. the other one is a0 minutes away. numbertwo, my daughter here. the other one is a0 minutes away. number two, my daughter has just purchased a house, not an apartment, she has bought an apartment, she has bought an apartment, three minutes walk from here so she would be close. number three, he works here. asif works at the taxi driver and his office is nearby. we are -- we cannot neglect that there are no problems, there are problems. there are people who
4:44 am
have the problems, people who never wa nt have the problems, people who never want a have the problems, people who never wantajob, have the problems, people who never want a job, they never have a job. if they are coming from the war zones, they did not even learn the danish, but it don't mean that if they are living in a place then we just throw them out. how do you think society is easier, how do you think society is easier, how do you think the society... i think society sees us think the society... i think society sees us as foreigners. and they a lwa ys sees us as foreigners. and they always well, because we are not white. it doesn't matter what you do. it doesn't matter what you do, it doesn't matter how perfectly well you speak danish, unless you are white, you are not danish. election day is not far away. a meeting these social democrat party candidate from the community meeting. as you can see is lovely houses we have here, but there's
4:45 am
like four blocks and there are two blocks in the middle that are going to be sold because we want to have them mixed. 0f to be sold because we want to have them mixed. of course there are some people living here who are sick and it will be hard for them to have to move. a lot of the residence that we met the other day, they were saying that no—one asked them. met the other day, they were saying that no-one asked them. what seemed to really anger them, concerned and worried them, they said the decision has been made about us, our lives, oui’ has been made about us, our lives, our homes, our communities, and we weren't involved in it. i've because they're right. weren't involved in it. i've because they‘ re right. when weren't involved in it. i've because they're right. when you make a new law you hear everybody, but they will not have the... i mean, you will not have the... i mean, you will still make the law even though they will not like it. and apart they will not like it. and apart they are totally right but how are they are totally right but how are the elections going? a crazy time right now in danish politics. having my party, the social democrats, doing fine. because we're taking the concerns people have, also with
4:46 am
immigration, seriously. and if you look out in europe you can see right—wing parties moving forward and we have seen that in denmark as well and we would not like to have that. so we take concerns seriously. i want to know what she thinks about the prospects of the far right in the prospects of the far right in the forthcoming elections. people like this. how realistic is it that he would get elected? he is 50-50, i will say. what does that say about denmark as a society for someone like him to have a 50—50 chance of getting elected? i think it's a very bad situation for denmark and very shameful as well. freedom of speech
4:47 am
only really matters if you do something that really, really offends people. why would you do it so much... you have to give me time to answer. i did not know for certain... the video of me talking has become part of his campaign. he has become part of his campaign. he has uploaded it on youtube and it has uploaded it on youtube and it has been snowballing and it has had thousands of views. he is trying to tap into the global alt—right populist movement and he is clearly succeeding. 0ne populist movement and he is clearly succeeding. one of the comments as "i hope this guy gets the support he deserves in denmark stop that a hero right there." and he needs only 2% of the people's vote is to get into the parliament. this person has run a campaign of provocative and offensive stunts. this is another copenhagen 6hetto.
4:48 am
it has a significant immigrant and muslim population. seven weeks before the election, he has come protected by police to perform his kara na protected by police to perform his karana throwing protected by police to perform his kara na throwing stunt. protected by police to perform his karana throwing stunt. two man run in trying to take the karana from him. he is taken to safety in a police van and for two days police struggle with writers incensed by his action. i have come to meet the two young men who rushed to stop this done. 0ne two young men who rushed to stop this done. one was arrested and awaits charges while the other evaded capture. they have asked us to hide their identities.
4:49 am
you were born in denmark does make you won't born in denmark. you came to denmark when you were very, very young. how danish do you think the government and the white danes, the majority of them, see you? how does that make you feel?
4:50 am
it's finally polling day. the centre—right and right—wing coalition government have put a plan
4:51 am
and are facing the electorate. two new far right parties, including rasmus paludan‘s are attempting to get into parliament for the first time. any social democratic party out of government for four years, i'm hoping that supporting the 6 hetto i'm hoping that supporting the 6hetto plan will help them win back power —— are hoping. it is approaching midnight. an have come to the parliament building where the candidates are waiting for their results. already something seems to be happening. this area has been allocated to rasmus paludan‘s party and this is where he has been waiting. why are we not allowed to go inside? because they don't want visitors to slideways that, do you know? you don't know. it is almost midnightand know? you don't know. it is almost midnight and 98% of the votes are uncounted. rasmus paludan has received only a percent of the votes. there is no way he is going
4:52 am
to get into the parliament —— one .8%. suddenly we spot him. but he is less talkative than he was in the city square. rasmus paludan, how does it feel to be rejected? the winners of the night of the social democrats. the party leader mette frederiksen will almost certainly become the new prime minister. it's a new political programme for the country, with a key ingredient from before. she is celebrating the victory of her party.
4:53 am
what do you think this means?” her party. what do you think this means? i hope for a new direction in denmark, of course. and in terms of integration, the ghetto plan? yeah. she said that right now, that she is standing on that same perspective as she has done all the way through. which is? the plan will be continued. the cross— party the plan will be continued. the cross—party support for the ghetto planet means it is unlikely to be stopped anytime soon. bbc, is danish immigration policy racist? no, of course not. denmark's elections, support —— saw support for popular party ‘s fall and the far right fail to get into parliament. at around 80% of voters chose parties which support the ghetto plan. for many of the countries immigrants concerns about their place in denmark continue to grow. —— country's

immigrants. friday was a hot one in the west of the uk, saturday is going to be hotter across eastern parts of the country. still nowhere near as hot as france — here is a reminder of that record—breaking temperature set on friday in southern france, nearly a6 celsius, smashing the previous record set in august 2003 of aa.1. across europe, still very hot, you can see these deep red colours, temperatures into the 30s across much of the continent, the heat is actually going to be shifting eastwards over the next few days, and then it will start to turn cooler. back to the uk, in england on saturday, temperatures could get up to sa celsius, that is just in one or two spots, for most of us it won't be quite so hot but it will feel very muggy already from the morning onwards, first thing in the morning on saturday in the south, temperatures could be around 16—17, a little fresher in the north—east of england. on saturday there will be a lot more cloud across western parts of the uk, so here it
4:55 am
won't be quite so hot, the heat is going to ease, in fact showers and thunderstorms are possible in northern ireland and scotland, but across england, the heat is going to intensify. look at these deep red colours — temperatures in excess of 30 degrees are expected in yorkshire and possibly 3a in the south—east of the country. but in western scotland, a significant drop. showers and thunderstorms across parts of scotland may rumble through during the course of saturday evening, whereas across many parts of england it will be a balmy, if not hot, hot end of the day. if you don't like the heat, here is the good news: sunday is going to be much, much fresher, a cool front is set to sweep across the country, it will cut off that hot wind out of france and instead we will see a westerly wind blowing, so we can see yellow colours here indicating the cool air and that heatwave transfers into more central and eastern parts of eastern germany and poland, where temperatures could approach a0 celsius. here is sunday's weather forecast. you can see the wind blowing no longer out of the south, it is blowing out of the atlantic, a fresh breeze around western coasts, showers as well, still pretty warm in the south, temperatures around 25 celsius, low 20s across yorkshire, but in stornaway a mere 15 degrees — an atlantic breeze and some showers. the fine summer weather is expected
