9:07 pm
a high ratio than how don't know who would you know back in the what it was the twenty's. it's almost first world war standard you know there's a lot of people dying and it sounds like there's not a great deal of governance going on if that's what's happening china was brought round and that was on the big gamble with china have having been the olympics. was that they could be encouraged to feel that. the same goes because of me brought the game to the world. the only way to really make it global is to bring questionable countries into the fold in terms of highlighting to the world the atrocities that are going on trying to turn those around they don't think it's a good thing because you could hollow that because it's the post cancels twenty twenty two supreme committee which is responsible for the all the nice ation of the tournament that has said that is deeply concerned by the allegations and is found to investigate them but the next police ambassador to canada has already said that

9:10 pm
and a dozen senior officials and members this stems from the murder of a prominent anti-fascist rapper two weeks ago allegedly by a golden dawn activist the party has become the third largest in greece and is best known for terrorizing immigrants and attacking political rivals dr alexander cuts a mass who's a specialist in of the country's politics spoke to my colleague kevin owen earlier he believes the more the government tries to suppress it the more the organization is likely to flora's. so far as the position of the m.p.'s for whom arrest warrants have been issued is concerned by the fact that they will be on trial in under arrest they will not lose their status as members of the greek parliament or so seems to be the case if you try to close something down and you drive it underground it thrives conversely. that is correct and i am personally against
9:11 pm

9:12 pm
ministry of defense reacting to what the paper calls a wrong assumption that the british people has become risk averse in a nutshell the paper says it's not the people don't want war it's that they don't understand how it will benefit them so in an effort to explain war better the think tank makes some recommendations for us to make a large investment into drones suggesting that if people in foreign countries they killed at arms length the british public won't mind so much second use more contractors aka must raise rather than british soldiers to lessen worries about casualties. use more special forces soldiers because apparently the loss of elite soldiers doesn't have such an impact on the public because that role is perceived as inherently more risky and full something military families are already calling disgraceful reduce the profile of repatriation ceremonies for sessions of hearses
9:13 pm
carrying coffins straight to the union jack when bodies are brought back from afghanistan. but a war weary british public isn't keen on having its opinion swayed and is particularly adamant about keeping repatriation the ceremonies in the public cause i think there should be respected for what they've done and we should be aware that it was just more just the. other things anything they can do is. going to publish them or any move potable should be. i think basically fish would be going to war so it's really trying to avoid war rather than try and make it sound it makes an interesting way the paper appears prescient as it was written before the british parliament voted against getting involved in syria under the immense weights of public opinion but the. it seems unlikely that the public will be manipulated into supporting conflict quite as easily as even the ministry of
