we are strong and that we are preparing for war crimes an ominous threat that comes as the electoral commission says that it will announce the official results of last weekend's presidential polls on sunday three pm local time but there is confusion over this because he's hearing from other electoral commission officials that it has not yet been determined when these results in fact will be announced now as you can hear this growing anger in tapir square in this is because many of the people here who are muslim brotherhood supporters are cautious of the fact that they think the electoral commission is delaying and nonsingular salt's because the army is trying to organize that it's candidate after much traffic the main egypt's makes president and there are growing concerns that if indeed shafiq is announced they will be violence here in egypt the military is worried about those they have warned of potential violence they have warned political leaders on both sides to put a lid on growing on waste but they've also said that despite these protests and despite the growing anger they're not going to back down from we sent

only. it remains in limbo as ecuador weighs whether to grant him political asylum the latin american country has a recall it's a bastard to britain for consultation authorities in the u.k. say they will arrest us for breach of bail the moment he steps out of the ecuadorian embassy where he has been since tuesday the whistleblower has previously spent eighteen months under house arrest parties in a million church is in ecuador's capital quito has been looking into his asylum chances. only songe has been claiming that he's case was politically motivated denying sex crime allegations which he's wanted for questioning in sweden and it's exactly those claims of political nature of the case that are being tara we looked into here in ecuador where there is still no sign of the season is on the way now president rafael correa says ecuadorian authorities are assessing if there is
7:13 pm
a real threat to a songes life the latin american leader has stressed that ecuador rejected the penalty so if he finds there are strong grounds to songes fears of being ultimately extradited to the united states he might decide the whistleblower needs protection if you want to go pretty you know if you have to see if there's any death threats against julian assange and you have to analyze his reasons for requesting asylum in his hands due process here in ecuador is a country that rejects persecution for ideological regular songe lost his extradition appeal to the u.k. supreme court either we could accept it there is ultimately handed over to sweden he's likely to be detained immediately that's what i said himself in his first public comments since he took refugee in the ecuadorian embassy on tuesday after having spent eighteen months under house arrest without charge that we could be excited to add it it's not looming extradition to sweden that worries him the most but he's possible removal to the united states where he claims he is the subject of grand jury proceedings he also said that the u.k.
7:14 pm
and sweden deliberately slowed down his case to allow us to. time to draw up charges against him for leaking hundreds of thousands of secret u.s. documents while ecuador might hope to be seen as a defender of these and ideas by accepting the world's number one whistleblower as a political refugee it could be made to suffer for its actions for example it's been suggested that ever there was a trade with united states and consequently thousands of jobs my suffer immensely in the latin american country shelters are signs obviously there's a lot more to this than rules the idea we have to wait and see how these seemingly never ending saga plays out. swedish writer oscar sorts of says it's not a songes fear of prosecution in stockholm that pushed him to take the drastic step of seeking political asylum in this week's issue is that he's afraid of getting on convicted for sex crimes i think that's much too simplistic even if he would be
7:15 pm
convicted in sweden and he would be immediately released because he has been serving so much time in england so basically off he comes here it might be a couple of weeks in imprisonment and then prosecution maybe but the after that he will be released and then what happens then well sweden has a record of being very subservient to the u.s. when they want people or they want crackdowns and certain things in sweden and so on so that is the reason for him being scared of getting to sweden. and of course as always we welcome your opinion on the stories that we covered today at our website we're asking what you think the future holds for julian assange and as of now here's where your views stand at the moment the majority view over a third believe assad will safely get to ecuador and run the wiki leaks from there just under a third however think the whistleblower will have to spend the rest of his life on
7:16 pm
the run a little less than about a quarter reckon songe will be handed over to the u.s. and be sent to guantanamo bay and finally ten percent say he will spend years in the ecuadorian embassy in london but it's not what you think it are to dot com. and while the euro two thousand and twelve football championship is approaching its finals fans are becoming more excited and drunk this sunday season england playing its quarterfinal match and with the country's pubs set to be packed the emergency services are on standby for a surge in those who might need a little help sobering up are reports. today's the tickets will be made better placed to catch the game then down the local pub watching football in the pub can be absolutely fantastic it's a great big communal shared experience and with many great games in big hundreds of
7:17 pm
people there's not been an ounce of trouble just a fantastic atmosphere and if you can't be there a lot of people feel it's the kind of the next best thing so many things like england knights we were always at danger it could turn ugly but when it's raw it is a wonderful why to watch football coming up the game is part of english drinking culture and thousands of books in london's bars and pubs whenever a match is on. the ballgame or no we're always a responsible drinking party tricks like us if you're so into the game it's a really good. story. but the stats say something very different is a big problem for us and also for always the last five six years we've seen a massive increase in alcohol coles and when they move around sixty thousand incidents every year the london ambulance service operates these. very drunk on the regular service the alcohol recovery center is normally dispatched on
7:18 pm
a friday and saturday nights extra services are now being provided in binge drink person big football games complete especially busy. for the euros. in every home. and foul behavior from drunken english football fans can be more than a little of. the what's equivalent of. every shift before we go out. because what happens is. most people in the trunk will. i'm going to coach a group for africa that by providing this service that more calls to the taxpayer is the british government scoring a goal by catering for the problem rather than tackling it head on and england's better than expected performance has meant more people out drinking and being a weekend time to get drunk because of the later kick off when you take sport and
7:19 pm
alcohol and you put them together generally speaking you'll find it doesn't matter whether your team's winning or losing in general people will use that as an excuse to drink and so our advice is to keep an eye on how much you're drinking. tournament and not just going but actually let's remember that the tournament lasts for three weeks so if you're drinking a lot each guy name actually i've got three week period to live in might have taken a bit of a battering with p.z. fans letting the side down by being such a burden to the health service many feel it's high time english football supporters say that up there. london. you've got the world covered for you at r t dot com here's a little bit of what's online for you right now. might there be such a thing as honest computer hacking a dutch political party is trying to legalize the online attacks just so long as you warn your targets before you strike. and

7:23 pm
is now on to that eternal question what is the price of happiness with the global economy in turmoil it seems that for many of us financial security is the number one priority right from the heart of the big apple the president tries to find out now just how much money people there need to be happy. how much of an annual salary would make you feel think that's this week let's talk about that thirty five. euro per year that would be enough for you i think it would be good seventy five here under grand hundred grand. forty thousand dollars some proves of the fund really survive with forty thousand dollars around a better hundred fifty thousand per couple that would make you feel like that's all
7:24 pm
i would say probably. two hundred thousand dollars that's a lot yeah but this why do people want so much money can it in the united states we think about its consumption but everyone knows that the things that you own own you and that the simple life can make you happy why does no one subscribe to that it's just philosophical it's what we grew up with it's what we were trained with it's what we believe do you think the answer varies from country to country in terms of success oh i'm sure does so what do you think on the scale americans fit and. do we need more money or less money more. yet because we have all the stuff especially in america a money is everything america is the money we like to live in because we. can live well you know schoolteachers are definitely on mark thanks why do you
7:25 pm
think that school teachers earn so much less than people who don't necessarily add as much value as you do i think it's because we're just good natured and we are caring and we don't we're not in it for the money sound yeah so those kinds of jobs are going to get paid less because you're not greedy as much money as i need. to live healthy and with my family. and us to be lucky i think that's that's all i don't need that much money no more than that no more than that do you think if you made more than that you'd be happier that's no i think you spend what you make so no matter what you're just going to spend what you make yes so if you make eighty thousand dollars you're going to spend more i'm going to spend more and i'm getting a bigger house and a bigger boat and everything else to go with it you know. need that the. yes a view that kept the bottom line it's your annual salary might increase but that
7:26 pm
doesn't mean your happiness will necessarily increase with it. and that does it for us this hour i'll be back with a recap of the top stories in just a couple minutes time. wealthy british style. that's not on the tireless money.
