visit the united kingdom later this year it comes as the two leaders met at the world economic forum in davos and also comes amid rumors of a breakdown in the relationship between the two countries the feeling. like in. the way they. were this was a great. question for getting into. whether rumor or not what is real is that twenty seventeen saw a real strain in the so-called special relationship. is the only way. to reason made don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we're doing just fine and perhaps a change of heart by president trump in order to repair that relationship he's indicated that he's willing to apologize for retreating britain first if you're
telling me that the harpy people horrible racist people i would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that i know nothing about them previous announcement of a potential visit by trump have provoked a backlash amongst british politicians i would not wish to issue any british to speak in the. previous report suggests that mr trump himself postponed a potential visit to the u.k. because he didn't want to be greeted by huge protests and attitudes here really changed a recent poll suggests that more than half fifty six percent of brits don't want president trump to visit if donald trump comes to the u.k. he will hold the biggest protest in british history he will be mad by a million of us at times in a citizen's arrest of him for incitement of racial hatred. both to one of the anti
trump protest organizers it's a bit disappointing that trump will be visiting and the prime minister treat him a has has agreed to meet with him it's not completely surprising to be honest but it's disappointing you know she's accountable to the electorate and i think the population of britain has more than made its views clear in the fact that we don't want trump to visit we cannot stand his views he's no racist tweets that he's come out with his racist policies he's going to come here that that's going to happen we can't do anything about that but whilst he's here we know we will ensure that we hand him you know every step he takes in this country we will be there telling him what we think of him and telling him what we think of his policies should president trump visit go ahead britain security agencies could be getting ready for some of the biggest protests to rock this city since the visit of george w. bush in the wake of the iraq war is the only r.t. in london. from stated in davos that the u.s.
is open for business and it seems part of that plan is taking aim at the competition the president said that no country should be dependent on energy providers well as secretary of state it has gone even further directly criticizing the north stream to pipeline over fears that it will increase european reliance on russia. my administration is also taking swift action in other ways to restore american confidence and independence we are lifting self-imposed restrictions on energy production to provide affordable power to our citizens and businesses and to promote energy security for our friends all around the world no country should be held hostage to a single provider of energy like coal in the united states opposes the north stream two pipeline we see it is undermining europe's overall energy security instability . provides russia yet another tool to politicize it or geo as
a political tool millstream to use a major pipeline project designed to pump russia natural gas into europe but it's something of a divisive project nordic and bolted countries that raise concerns that it would weaken european energy security germany and austria though support the projects and the need for cheaper gas supplies political analyst monte stone felt thinks the u.s. is targeting the european energy market. in the america first policy of president travel in so far as the united states was to export their. conventional gas elegy liquefied natural gas to the european market the european market is also one of the. they could a big target energy security is not in danger when we have the second string of not stream thats for sure i mean russia pipeline system and the whole you know
infrastructure is more dependent on europe that europe is out of russia so if we already reached energy security it's only the question who has you know the biggest share the bucket. rolled its tanks into syria clashes broke out between police and protesters at an antiwar rally in the german city of cologne. thousands of people showed up at the demonstration demanding ankara's withdraw from syria's african region where turkey is carrying out what it calls an antiterrorism operation at some point police stopped the gathering of the banned kurdish militia that similar demonstration was also held in london protest come a seven civilians were reportedly killed in a recent to strike. related speeches we've seen from the ground they show the
aftermath of that attack and it's fear that the airstrikes may have claimed even more lives of people believed to be trapped under rubble witnesses claim the turkish aerial bombardments that target residential areas. of science. there are no military zones here all of them are civilian areas and the civilians were asleep it was nothing they bombed even though there were no soldiers here we are all civilians. a lot michel fell about twenty five meters away shrapnel ended up in my hand i wanted to know why they were shelling civilians. the turkey says that it's conducting an anti terror up aeration against kurdish militia in africa the offensive is supported by several anti syrian government groups the areas they hold are marked on our map in green the turkish military claims that almost four hundred kurdish and ice all fighters have been killed since the start of their operation the un those raising concern claiming five thousand people have
fled the area since the conflict started nevertheless the turkish leader has repeatedly found to expand the operation and most recently claimed that it would be extended all the way to the iraqi border. you know you know we're going to continue the only french operation until we achieve our goals and then as promised to clear mum beach of tourists after that i was struggling up to the iraqi border until no terrorists are left. president runs as that will push on with through the city of miami beach and then further to the east towards the iraqi border the move would not only mean an all out offensive against the syrian kurds but could also threaten u.s. personnel who are stationed in the area turkish foreign ministers urged the us to immediately withdraw from beach. have been assisting the local kurds in their operation with a pentagon official recently announcing the creation of a thirty thousand strong border security force in the region now this was to be
comprised largely of kurds something that infuriated ankara and it prompted it to launch that attack on kurdish positions in syria u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson later backtracked on the idea he said that officials had misspoken and the plans that actually been misrepresented and he were activist richard becker believes that washington's behavior can be explained by the fact that it's now caught between two allies but we have what appears to be a somewhat intractable contradiction between the u.s. interest in syria and the u.s. interest in nato and so this is something that they're trying to find a way out of but it's very difficult given the fact that it was viewed in states along with turkey saudi arabia france britain which caused the destabilization of syria and led to the present circumstances and the united states and the other hand is tied in with the y.p. g. forces inside syria who have been the main fighting forces that the u.s.
has been allied with in the battle against isis but more than that to maintain a u.s. presence inside syria which the u.s. military has been declaring is there for indefinite. packed with explosives was detonated in the afghan capital leaving almost one hundred people killed that story after the break. when you don't see. why. not. said. no to me to let. you speak french.
join me every first week on the alex salmond sure and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics. i'm sure i'll see you then. at least ninety five people have been killed and another one hundred sixty injured after a large explosion rocks the afghan capital kabul that's according to reports citing interior ministry officials local journalist reports from the ground. we understand
at this stage that the attacker was in an ambulance he had said he had a patient and that he was stopped at the second checkpoint by the police force the attack took place right in the heart of kabul this is not very far from the swedish embassy from the european union from the indonesian embassy and from the high peace council which is down the road the attack shows this constant issue of security and intelligence breaches the area where the attack took place is less than one hundred meters from the office of the police chief of kabul less than twenty meters away from key afghan intelligence facilities once the area is cleared in once the dust settles unfortunately we will be hearing that a lot of those killed ordinary people who are simply the only breadwinners for their families and the people of afghanistan continue to suffer as they continue to bear the brunt of this conflict at
a time when we also see all sides intensifying the war. this is the latest in a wave of deadly terrorist attacks that have hit afghanistan recently with dozens of people losing their lives at the hands of various extremist groups that earlier in the week are militants attacked to save the children office that was in the city of jalalabad shortly after a car bomb exploded outside the premises of the six people were killed dozens more were injured eisel claimed responsibility and last saturday a group of terrorists targeted a luxury hotel in kabul killing at least twenty two the taliban said it was behind the atrocity political analyst says the afghan security forces lack a coherent strategy in fighting numerous terror groups. the situation is getting from bad to worse the security and the afghan security forces are unable you know to have a proper strategy or plan for curbing to resume not only. i called city but all
over afghanistan and now that we are heading towards a spring. in the next three months probably insurgent attacks will increase in afghanistan and we might end up losing a few provinces to the hands of taliban the international community. headed by the us government and failed strategies we have seen incidents in iraq we have seen you know the sweating situation in libya in other countries and for the past sixteen seventeen years we have been witnessing these foot strategies in afghanistan i don't thing you know they have a strategy for afghanistan. a new british satire called the death of stalin has sparked much debate in russia some time in the film distorts history others though say it's just a comedy russia's culture ministry those banned the movie however one must go cinema did screen it anyway it led to a police raid it was done off reports from. when
asked if this british movie follows the last days and death of joseph stalin as well as the political infighting that ensued so why is it having a problem here in russia it's not about style in themselves but it is about the timing the showing of this movie was supposed to coincide with the anniversary of the battle of stalingrad it was one of the most decisive moments in the second world war and it's bloodiest battle and since this movie is dark comedy it is showing in a rather satirical way some of the people that made this victory for russia in that war possible so some are saying that this movies is a bit insensitive for the veterans and those who cherish the memories of the great patriotic war many elderly people will perceive it as an offensive mockery of the
soviet past the country that conquered fascism and most disgusting the victims of stalinism we don't have censorship we're not afraid of critical assessment of our history. such movies shouldn't even get into russia they shouldn't be discussed just don't let them be shown. i'm ready to come to the cinemas where the film will be shown to speak to those who bought tickets the film is a provocation that might add fuel to the fire so the russian ministry of culture decided to revoke the license of the movie when it comes to public opinion while it's played some agree that some may find the timing a bit insensitive others are saying it's art it's not intended to be story accurate and that people probably shouldn't be taking it too seriously it's just a black comedy what distortion in songs are people talking about. it is brilliant i
think such films should be shown on primetime t.v. . this film is from the tragic fast protest genre and shouldn't see it from the viewpoint of historical accuracy a few months ago a russian movie found itself and i. dentical situation the film called matilda was telling the story of the last russian tsar nicholas the second and his love affair with a ballerina and the reason that movie faced so much opposition both from the politicians and from ordinary people in the street is because according to the russian orthodox church nicholas the second is a saint so some details of his personal of his love life could be disturbing to a religious person in russia the outcome of that story was the movie was allowed to be shown and people had a chance to make up their own mind while the fate of the death of stalin remains in limbo it has done up to the. numbers you brought up today thanks for joining in to our broadcast this evening go back with the very latest news headlines if i can
hopefully see you in thirty three minutes time. is america as it actually is a bomb over the fantasy is reality and he's doing what you'd expect a seasoned businessman to do cut all that nonsense out of the mix bring jobs back. to a one story she using a depressive rate. nuclear exchange to let loose weight the risk of accidents. this is senseless. just.
we're going underground as today u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson commemorates the dead of auschwitz seventy three years to the day that soviet troops liberated the nazi concentration camp coming up in the show as all the bosses of multibillion dollar failed multinational cover the end of someone to westminster for questioning one of jeremy corbin's key parliamentary allies the former shadow emergencies minister chris williamson why his party countenanced signing deals with the caribbean and the director of global justice now which is a future british labor government to atone for its sins and stop the n.h.s. is a cash cow by a profit hungry pharmaceutical industry was. going to face up to the reality and take action to save the n.h.s.
from death by the thousand. jeremy corbyn that alone u.k. foreign secretary bars johnson slams the government for destroying britain's health yes this goal is a ball coming up a debate going on the ground but first while washington decides on yet more sanctions against what it perceives as its nuclear armed opponent moscow it is russia that prepares to host talks on syria in sochi for united states media characterized as fake news by the republic's president this is the kind of reporting to expect on monday is u.s. state funded p.b.s. one of the main drivers of the war these past two years russia's president vladimir putin began an effort to put a greater political stamp on what comes next in syria. he was a confident cruden who declared the end of the syrian civil war is finally in sight and he was clear about who gets the credit as well he might be but why is putin one of the main drivers of the syrian war surely he's one of the main peacemakers along
with president rouhani of took in iran who are meeting to discuss peace in russia on monday surely one of the main drivers of war was this man we organized the friends of so. we are mobilizing humanitarian support and support for the opposition when we went into libya and we were able to immediately stop the massacre there because of the unique circumstances and the coalition that we had helped to organize we also had to make sure that walmart gadhafi didn't stay there former president obama justifying regime change in syria by bizarrely using libya and defacto supporting the assassination of muammar gaddafi there and tourism a was of course in the u.k. government when it supported destroying africa's richest country and was prime minister when she was arguably one of the main drivers of the syrian war killing maiming or displacing millions we need a political solution a political long term solution which sees a syria without assad who is jury is
a may only u.k. prime minister because of a defacto billion plus bribe to tell other countries who they should or shouldn't be led by and isn't her government support for groups like the white helmets tantamount to being one of the main drivers of the war in syria well arguably it's all over now and while u.k. media outlets like the state mandated b.b.c. and state owned channel four continue to broadcast the questionable footage no one at sochi in russia or on monday will be taking any notice of their so-called journalism the three powers of russia turkey and iran will also take less notice of the cia u.s. officials say the president donald trump has decided to end the cia's program of arming syria and surjit the cia program was launched by them president barack obama in twenty thirteen the cia is reported to have spent up to one billion dollars a year on the theory operations informed opinion in the usa appears to be clearly
running ahead of british mainstream journalists the minority tory government and the blairite neocon majority in the bottom entry labor party it's been widely reported that for years now the cia was providing arms intelligence money and other types of supply. to these armed militants who were working hand in hand and who are working hand in hand and oftentimes under the command of al qaeda in syria but have donald trump cancelled cia support for so-called moderate rebels driesum a in a cabinet of continue to support a coup d'etat in syria that's why u.k. labor leader jeremy corbyn as well as our next guest oppose the bombing of damascus for chris williams and britain's former shadow emergencies minister money is apparently better spent on health services than bombing urban centers in the middle east he joins me now chris thanks for coming back on the show before we go into health service issues and and other infrastructure issues is it true that around christmas time you advocate to the doubling of council tax across this country have no what i've suggested is that local government seized by the initiative by using
legislation that the tories put in place in two thousand and twelve to offer a range of discounts so essentially what you would be able to do is stop the cuts in local government at a stroke by loading the burden on those with a broader shelter so those basic living in the biggest houses and freeze concept or even reduce it for people living in small the warnings in the band sort of a to see possibly even in even a in some areas there's no one size fits all it will just depend on how many of the long properties in age there are in any given local authority area which would then give local authorities you see to load the burden there but it would have to then be agreed in a referendum on that the two thousand and eleven localism act should be getting that democratic buy and people would have to vote for it but the choice would be either a construct increase across the board of six percent or for most people freeze it and stop the cuts the alternative is increase if everybody and continue with the cuts i think that's a pretty good deal and a stopgap measure which is well worth considering where is that idea right now than
when the labor party policy is something that came up in my local authority area following the latest iteration of the cuts in dalby the council's plan to close a lot was given over to the third sector a lot of local people were asking me what i was going to do about it it's true that this idea came. forward and so therefore been going around speaks people of the country who are interested in this idea no local forces take it but i want to seriously giving it consideration while i want to work they won't stop me because we'll talk about labor in a second but. move to boris johnson u.k. foreign secretary is going to join jerry goldman's labor party given that he wants more money for the health service here well i mean a clearly than l. service is in desperate need of investment what we actually need to do it seems to me that with the national black morris johnson well i buy the idea that we put more money into the national service but we also need to reform a national health service to kick the privateers out of health care indeed in the aftermath of the karelian scandal we need to remove the private sector from all public services and what they're doing essentially and what has been happening for
decades we've heard of neo liberalism it's something that's afflicted new labor as well is the public services have been used as a cash cow to generate private profit and we're not getting value for money that's the point and i think what we're suggesting is that yes we need to invest more but we want to get more bang for the book as it were and have proper democratic oversight of the public services the way in which the private is make their margins is by screwing down the workforce that they employ cutting back on their terms and conditions and diminishing the quality of service to the general public and we see that with the crisis in the national health service which is apparently the next health service never been better prepared for the others. according to the prime minister but the reality is you know i'm going to stocking up any people are dying while they're waiting for an ambulance to arrive are people being treated on corydoras i mean it's an absolute appalling mess but is it not true that your party when in power is signing off deals with karylle it your leader said no there's no
contract signed with the prime minister us i have a piece of paper here which has the lead service city but east leeds orbital road a preferred bidder signature by the leeds council or neighbor for karelian they were signing things off with karelian before. the collapse how how could you possibly i think i think i think they retrieved that and i think what we've they have to bear there is no good you know i think the treaty before they actually signed that off but you know we've had as you say there's no contract no record wasn't lying directly but there was a preferred bidder stages given to really after all the profit yes indeed and the problem has been the model that held sway for the last four decades is not fit for purpose was really fit for purpose then and for a lot of local authorities a public sector organizations it was a kind of only show in town i mean when i was leader of the council in dalby a number of years ago when i did the first peer by scheme in the city was during a labor government that's true but it was to bring properties back into use and
then to revenue were involved in that i was because it was the only show it isn't the problem you talk the talk against new liberalism you have a lead council which is trying to have negotiations with karelian while corby in the newly does a no no we don't want that contract as in the health services it's not true is it now it is true and i think you've got to separate the difficulties local authorities find themselves in in terms of the way in which they can access finance and central government what we need is a change in the system and that will only happen when we get a change of government or a change of heart from the way we have generally been a system or a change in people in the labor party who's been appointed shadow secretary of state for northern ireland he will not be used for pharmaceutical companies we're talking to nick dearden in the end of this show about the need for labor to call out the big pharmaceutical companies because they're charging so much in the n.h.s. you do deals with i mean you have people that explicitly support the big
pharmaceutical companies well i mean obviously i would have to speak for himself but our position is you know in relation to going forward and how we organize economy is i think very clear on the jeremy corbyn and i've already. except for the fact that you know for the last forty years or most. of the gordon brown and tony blair i'm not going to be like tourism in slag your for their all of the organ is different absolutely but how different is he i mean you have a councils in this country labor council get off shoring funds to avoid tax have to go to a local well listen local government is in a paulus situation and i don't know the details about why certain doing that but when local governments have been absolutely decimated with funding cuts you know there will be some creative accounts and see going on in order to try to minimise the impact of suspect on frontline services but i speak for certain i don't know that a local government is one thing what about the fact that at the conference in brighton
widely seen as a successful labor conference there were tables going for more than a thousand pounds for pharmaceutical company bosses to come and meet with people in germany corbin's labor party to represent pharmaceuticals in well write new energy future you offer they can they can come and talk to is certainly but i am very strong of a firm view that there is a very powerful case to bring much if not all of the pharmaceutical industry into public ownership because if you look at the cost to the national health service of you know buying drugs medicines from the pharmaceutical industry is colossal and there are a lot of people will all be well you know they make the margins because they put a lot of effort into research to develop it and they got to get their money back somehow i think i'll bet on frankly by the public sector the public sector is perfectly capable of undertaking research that develops and indeed many of the great leaps forward that we've made technologically speaking have actually been achieved funks the innovation in the public sector which is then being exploited by the private sectors where we are the sixth richest nation on earth and yet we've
got people sleeping in shop doorways in every town and city in the country every town or city in the country looking for something's going desperately wrong when that kind of thing is allowed to happen and you know in many ways is a false economy because there. all sorts of costs to the to the health service in terms of criminal. you know the police and the criminal justice system etc who have to pick up the pieces of a broken system i mean you know the former prime minister david cameron used talk about broken britain on going to me only it was broken is broken because of neo liberalism and if it is broken then my goodness me is absolutely smashed to smithereens now of the last eight years of relentlessly many people may agree with you even or and what you talk about pharmaceuticals momentum which has been credited with being so important for jeremy corbin's leadership had to come out fighting on the murdoch front pages this week saying we're not going to diesel lect they were m.p.'s i labor m.p.'s that completely disagree with what you've just said
