is just over twenty four hours since the u.k. lifted its seven year migration restrictions on romania bulgaria following an easy wide ruling polled say most britons are ready to welcome migrants but only if they integrate and work hard however a quarter say they want immigration cutbacks no matter what the laws say artie's party boy career ports and how the u.k. is bracing itself for the influx. leading up to the new year the british government hadn't released any estimates about the number of remain ians ambled carians that they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been lifted for them and that since he hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely anywhere within the european union skepticism and public concerns over mass immigration are it's an all time high if you're coming to claim benefits
you shouldn't that shouldn't be allowed and also if you flag your work you shouldn't be able to go on claiming benefits you should be asked to return to your country but the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying that britain can cope with very many and garion migration according to the paper instead of alarming the public the government merely needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing around i'm thinking about it now it's completely absurd it's the duty of not just government but all politicians to be responsible and to explain the facts which are on the whole margaret are considerably less likely to claim benefits than. native britons remain in diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by their portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the
u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hardworking and will contribute to british society something that economists here a happy to back up it's quite important for politicians to step back and explain that this is not the end of the world but on the whole immigration and indeed free movement within europe you know been quite beneficial to the u.k. economy despite the put a. station's tough talk in the tabloid headlines fears of a flood of migrants have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in officials most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway judging by the weather here so you can blame them probably boy see london. writer and journalist john white also believes migration actually benefits the u.k. hugely over the available evidence is that the migration to britain has been an it positive both in terms of cultural enrichment and economic investment if you
just take the health service for one example we are a national health service ruge be nonexistent with migrant labor levels of skill. doctor as consultants and clinicians the have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working through the u. and they enjoy the benefits of that so if we start setting up you shouldn't draw benefits from migrants we can expect a quid pro quo now in europe is the tough economic challenges are becoming more and more extreme still to come on r.t. right wing groups are gaining ground katy greece and their voice is set to get louder with key european parliamentary elections looming in the spring. also lympics city has new tracks not just for the athletes this time stay with us for
a look at the newest addition to sochi is in pursuit of a whisk sports fans to the venues in super quick time. a new form of violence has hit the streets of new york and police there seem unable or unwilling to do anything to stop it portnoy has more now on the need gang spreading fear across the city. you're walking down the street minding your own business and without warning police say they are investigating yet another knockout attack attackers mainly in their teens targeting victims at random it's called the knockout game the goal of this violent and twisted so called game is to knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been randomly assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest a seventy six year old woman was walking
along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work surrounded me one of them as i tried to get away one of them stepped out towards me. and. with the clothes is hit me in the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have been viewed by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place in broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue struggling to curb the string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe.

hello again and nothing seems to be able to stop europe's new to the political right with only tentative signs of economic growth and precious little good news for a deeply indebted countries like greece and france it's a movement that seems difficult to reverse parties picchu all of it takes a closer could a continent in search of nuances to hard problems. from the birth of the north to golden dawn greece and the south far right groups are making their voices heard in europe. this financial crisis affected everyone and it has allowed the right wing organizations to give people someone to blame for their problems it's those people's fault that is how they were cruel greece has seen a marked increase in support of the far right neo nazi groups golden dawn and
organization the right did by their critics as hooligans and thugs heralded by their supporters as the savior for greeks for the greeks and they systematical the brits and cultivate. but they. systematically present golden dawn of made it the most they have elected officials on their books including current greek m.p. elias custody out us it's not only in politics that extreme right to abuse a permeating this goal celebration by. athens just kept the artists so the midfielder banned for life from the national team despite his claims that he didn't know what the salute meant but the clearest indicator of the popularity of the far right will be when europeans go to the polls in may to vote in the e.u.
parliamentary elections one of those parties on the rise and france's muddying lipans national front. on the european people are realizing that the user name part of the soviet union in fact is destroying their freedom despite insistences that they want to take part in the political discourse we've seen repeated violent clashes involving these groups even in some of the most stable nations like austria where around a third of people voted for parties that are considered the right wing in a recent election. so we need to slow down immigration i have nothing against foreigners but enough is enough. e.u. is saying where no money should go to allow again what country is us on it's their own country and they used to wouldn't be like. dictate everything.
to us it used to be that all parties put interest spruced and the e.u. second now it's only. it seems as long as europe's finances continue to languish in the red more and more its people are seeking answers to the right peter all of germany. by your hands berg is an expert in social trends and he says the poor state of economy explained europe's lean to the far right. the financial crisis is really the key least in my these parties have gained support in recent years that the crisis had led to distrust of politicians is it has led to distrust of immigration or immigrants and i think what they're offering is not a very concrete alternative in terms of policy in terms of economic policy and support for these parties is really based on you know and dislike of the established political regime whatever that is and so people are looking for some
alternative and these parties come in and provide that but i don't think it's clear to people what they actually represent or policy would be. coming up next the skies or put his feet his finger on one of the reasons europe is struggling to emerge from its economic doldrums politicians who simply don't know what they're doing. we know that people who are in charge of economics know absolutely nothing about money for example none of their economic models include money they just are modeling based on certain assumptions that don't include debt so in the u.k. economy as close to fasten percent debt to g.d.p. inclusive a bank dead national debt household debt corporate debt that's a thousand percent what you iceland before blew up but i was born tells us this is a good this is a recovery this is good news and this to paper the times of london carries
a story saying he's the britain of the year he's the clout of the year he should be getting the clout of the year meanwhile at the close association over there at the festival of red nose day one of the core comic relief they say they're out there actually investing in cigarette companies gambling companies energy companies they're the ones investing in the worst the worst of the worst in terms of company so the real clowns are investing in death and destruction and this guy is not supposed to be a clown is out there doing a cloud of team getting people more into debt. because report they're a bit later on this just over a month to go before the winter olympics starting in salt she in the final preparations are underway in the city artes to buy more say to right to the venue subordinate specially built state to be trying. there's a new olympic track in town this one's not just for the. skyline has

any lish and russia so you never gave is easy. as well as the games these trains will be getting you know one spends zipping around this as well as world cup spectators come twenty eighteen. really really. areas. one of the international tricky tonally through the environmentally sensitive led. efforts which have paid off to give passengers a more pleasant one. fifteen minutes later we just knew from the subtopic call palm city of eilat and now. the beautiful mountains of the cool.

the moment they're reporting from a very cold and snowy windy mountainous tough beyond the olympics but the bunks it. a quick look at some other news now clashes have erupted between pro morsi protesters and supporters of the army in egypt leaving today ten people were arrested after the fighting broke out in the city of alexandria tensions have risen after the interim government branded the muslim brotherhood a terrorist group last week hundreds of people have died in armrest across egypt after former president mohammed morsy was deposed by the army in july last year. three bombs have gone off in quick succession and side a hotel in the somali capital mogadishu killing eleven people officials say one of the first explosions was a suicide attack nobody has claimed responsibility but the radical islamic group al-shabaab has carried out a campaign of violence against the government for more than two years the hotel
that was targeted is often used by government officials and is one of the most secure in the city. fifteen thousand ukrainian nationalists have taken to the streets of kiev they march carrying torches and flags to commemorate the hundred fifth anniversary of stepan bandera he was a controversial political figure who still divides opinion some mostly in the west of the country see him as no roic of the liberation movement while others call him a traitor pointing out his collaboration with nazi germany against the soviet union . conditions in a refugee camp in south sudan a reaching crisis point of stars and struggle to find enough clean water at least one hundred twenty thousand people have fled their homes many have come to this camp in the capital juba more than a thousand people have died in fighting since the former vice president try to take power by force two weeks ago talks between the government and rebel groups are
expected to start soon. and at least nineteen people have been arrested in the u.s. as dozens of activists tried to disrupt the annual rose parade in pasadena main reasons for discontent this year included fracking unemployment and real estate foreclosures hundreds of thousands of spectators came to see the events that date back to a night i meet next a group of scientists pack up their gizmo strap on their boots and head to antarctica.
recently the federal reserve system celebrated its one hundredth birthday yeah that big con game that just a few years ago no one seems to know about has been in place for one hundred years so let's celebrate the federal reserve by remembering all their accomplishments since nine hundred thirteen firstly they've managed to take the printing of money out of the hands of the u.s. government and thus out of the hands of us voters i what it comes to money who needs to mock received representation anyways they also managed to whittle away the dollars tagging the gold until nixon finally said forget gold let's print our way out of vietnam and because there is no link between the dollar and gold the
purchasing power of the dollar has reduced by at least twenty three times since the fed came into being lovely but what about the next hundred years well if the recent rounds of quantitative easing are any sign of things to come then we are going to be seeing a lot more inflation and big private bankers getting richer while we all get poorer bad people generally don't survive one hundred years but bad systems sadly can go on and on and on forever but that's just my opinion. summer is coming to an end. the crew of the academic field thereof is waiting for the mother station to pick up the winter everything has to be done quickly if the wind gets any stronger the helicopter will be able to take off and there's no other way of getting people onto the ship from the station they need to hurry winter
begins tomorrow. used to be the soviet union's biggest antarctic research station. now it only works during the summer. in the southern hemisphere someone starts in december and ends in much it's now april so seasonal operations are over. geological samples are gathered during the summer a loaded into containers. cold water is drained from the station and windows are boarded up and filled in with insulation if it was given even the slightest chance to sneak in it will be impossible to dig it out of.
the diesel generator was the last to be shutdown no one can survive without heat. takes just a few hours to complete. the station is ready for winter. comfortable flying people to make feel. good to say you know good to see you back here they told us you would come you're here unfortunates smiling upon us again everything's going to be great. i'm going to be eighty five in april now i only go to the doctor.
and entered to go. i'm drawn towards it my wife isn't even aware of these expeditions in the last few years. russia's expeditions to antarctica set off from cape town south africa while the ship stays in port for a few days the team members enjoy some time off. many of them want to take a tour to the cape of good hope. unfortunately there's not enough space on the bus so the polar explorers decide to draw lots to determine who gets to go. in the soviet era to get to antarctica it wasn't enough to just be lucky.
