7:31 am
while still in afghanistan and after a two year wait he was brought over to the u.k. under the government's official afghan interpreter scheme do you feel guilty sometimes that you got the visa and abdul didn't know one visa for those who spend time over. seventy per cent you know your move forward will be by the searching for people. that would. need before so. if you were. back in afghanistan abdul was a professional boxer he can't compete in the u.k. because he doesn't have a work permit but he can still train since i came here he can do nothing to staying at home going out sometimes they keep busy with my trainings google my.
7:32 am
if your human being. told you would be. sure of a chump change. the word good the world. should be told me but i have a cold. i love the rugby. a feeling we should lose the people we would trust the rules. and if we. were made above to your way all abdul can do now is wait for his final appeal against deportation to be considered it's by the home office problem turf either in afghanistan. or the same cost there was a big third for me the taliban and have i have a very bad depression day by day my depression is getting worse so i'm buried about my life but nothing could happen to me pretty boy i see greater manchester. officially the u.k.
7:33 am
government says it investigates every claim of intimidation and considers all cases on an individual basis. we've asked for reaction to bury situation from a number of organizations focusing on human rights or not anything but yet when we do we'll let you know what's said. and to russia sentiments and i'm going to clocks that's a glimpse into an alleged kremlin campaign to influence the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election is from a database of tweets from supposed moscow accounts released by an american news outlets correspondent been looking over the tweet she joins us again in the studio hi there jacki we're going to waltz in these tweets in a moment but why are they being seen as so important well for a while now social media use has been wrapped up into the allegations of russian meddling in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election scores of those so-called online bots russian bots apparently took to twitter and facebook all over the social media in order to influence potential voters and sway the election in their favor so it's suffice to say at
7:34 am
this point that u.s. politicians are more than a little concerned about this idea let's take a listen. the film portals into our society russia has harnessed the tremendous and quite frankly to me frightening power of social media sowing discord in the us by inflame passions on a range of divisive issues truly troubling evidence of the scope and reach of rush's interference in our last election i was clearly got the wound up jackie dish the dirt what's in these tweets well not what you might exactly expect these deleted tweets are coming from accounts that are supposedly linked to the kremlin and they were published by a news outlet who got ahold of them through a third party a anonymously so it's not exactly clear how they got them but you think that this database would just be chock full of pro trump tweets given that the u.s. intelligence community believes that putin's goal was to get trump to the white house let's take a listen to what the former f.b.i.
7:35 am
director had to say about that. secretary clinton so much. to flip side effect going was she had a clear preference for the first of running against the person who did so much. and while of course there are a number of tweets on the list that either support trump or specifically against hillary clinton the opposite of that is also true you can find in the mix tweets in favor of clinton quoting her speeches encouraging people to vote for her and support for bernie sanders the other democratic candidate was also in the mix but that also comes with along with attacks on trump himself so it's all a bit of confusion that it's all in their their support for all sides while of course there is a lot about trump as well bit of everything is it all about the election no many are completely off topic focusing instead on the hard hitting woes of sleeping in your contacts of the dislike for alarm clocks and because it's the internet there was also porn in there as well we've also been told that twitter bots have been
7:36 am
used to promote inflammatory tweets to get messages to divide people in the country and yet you can also find among this database tweets that are calling for peaceful solutions for unity in the country for finding a way to come together over you know issues like racial tensions in the country or referring to blacks black lives matters protests so it's all in there but the real cherry on the top of this whole story is the fact that there are a number of anti russia tweets in this list and a lot of them are really interesting they're going on about how russian hackers were involved in the election how heller warned us against trump russia collusion and how those ties must be investigated let's take a listen to some of the best hits of what they are whether to be found in there. to demand that house jewel be do its job and this to get drawn brushing time is things you can't ignore ration plant as you next. so americans have been so awfully
7:37 am
radicalized by groups russian propaganda to electrum perhaps the biggest threat. so there we have tweets talking about russian propaganda. trumping kremlin puppet and those are supposed to be tweets that are coming from accounts that are linked to the kremlin it just doesn't quite fit together and the internet is of course it's just a very divisive place everybody has their opinions and everybody feels free to post them there so this database really just does feel like a roundup of the typical things that you can find on twitter that's around just you can have an opinion on twitter disagree with me all right jack thanks very much for the. a spike in anti-semitic attacks in germany has prompted government action i'll have the details on that for you when we come back.
7:38 am
the protocol is hard coded. told us the world as we know it and those who try to get their way will be destroyed by it but those who want to come on board like a friendly regulator that's ok. a bit wary though you know it's the classic good cop bad cop scenario you know when regular government comes with a gift you have to be a little leery. to

unusual teams at this year's winter olympics one is the united squad from north and south korea competing at one for the first time in twelve years and was widely being seen as a positive sign that relations might be warming between them the other team is a limp athletes from russia known as taking part under a neutral flag after the doping scandal that hit the official team has been out to ask some spectators whether they recognize the rebranding of russia's athletes. it will take a long while for russian athletes journalists like myself that i can tell you first sure to forget the acronym oh ok r after chang twenty eight inc well just before the winter games a group of russian designers thought they could take advantage of the international olympic committee's language sanctioned.

7:42 am
the french fans set off flares and fireworks close to their opponent's home stadium the match was judged high risk so wide police were mobilized and mounted police escorted supporters to the venue and the match ended with a three one win for the home team. there's concern among the jewish community in germany after more than fourteen hundred anti semitic crimes were registered there last year there's also been a wave of anti semitic demonstrations with protesters burning israeli flags and chanting anti jewish slogans.
7:43 am
the german government says it is addressing a problem last month that launched a special commission to monitor anti jewish incidents and it follows years of appeals from the jewish community to know when the size of the hate crimes we spoke to a rabbi in berlin who thinks people need to come together if the problems to be defeated . it has to become much clear to people in this country especially to refugees that have recently arrived that we all share it personal responsibility and that it will not be tolerated where the burning of flags of israel whether. any attack on any community any child in the school will not be tolerated as years zero tolerance policy for anti-semitic attacks and that has to be clear it has to be not shoved under the carpet it has to be said loud and clear and then people will realize a recognize that if they want
7:44 am
to be part of this country there is also responsibility there is a personal responsibility of civil courage not only not to be revived in any any of any such acts but not but also not to tolerate if you see something say something that we all have the personal responsibility to stand up for any minority and of course also for jewish people and jewish institutions. now you're up to date on caller brian thanks for choosing also to update you this hour i'll be back with more in just over the thirty minutes from now in the meantime not going to check us out on twitter and facebook as a follow on the feedback on any of our stories. in america a college degree requires a great deal. paying a decade's long debt. studying so hard it requires tremendous.

first he spoke with the women of the moment the new elected president of shin fein media limit donald here's alex with fish report from dublin stephen's green one of the most famous locations and dublin's fair city one hundred years ago showing fame held a majority a parliamentary seats across the island of ireland last weekend they elected mary lou mcdonald as president of shane finn she is the first shannon fame leader not to be associated with the struggle so could once again shared fame be challenging for power across the island of ireland until the easter rising of one thousand sixteen shin fein had little success when all was changed and changed utterly by the oppressive british response to the rising sinn fein started to win by elections and then the one nine hundred eighteen u.k.
7:50 am
the general election swept ireland in a landslide victory only in the six counties which were to form northern ireland and unionism still hold sway after the establishment by treaty of their ideas for the state and the civil war which followed should feel effect to the split into the two parties which were to dominate the politics of ireland for the rest of the century one party which became feeling guilt came from the pro treaty wing of nationalism led by michael collins and the public can feel a foil party of him and the really low. meanwhile shin fein was reduced to a political rump increasingly associate struggle of the ira in northern ireland critically as the troubles swept hill a province from latin of sixty nine is unable to move in over some twenty years ago shin fein and the democratic unionists led the party militaries and both sides into a peace process which holds to this day graduation fane of eclipse the constitutional nationalist of the s.-t. o.-p. in the elections of the north while the twenty six thousand election for the doyle
7:51 am
in dublin achieved its best results since the one nine hundred twenty s. a met him to challenge the irish old firm a feeling galan feel for oil now the question is under this new leader maybe with donald tension fane finally overtake the democratic unionist in the north and the med once again as a governing party in the public. believe it donald you're no officially the leader of shouldn't fear tell me a bit about your own background how you came into politics your double go i am an example and woman alex even and and i came into politics in some ways almost accidentally i came into sort of a pit of political activism and running for elections and so on as a result of my interest in. domestic politics what was going on in the north it and i too international politics. but i had never planned this as the
7:52 am
end point if you like of my my political journey i grew up in dublin i come from what would be considered to be i suppose a typically middle class background i was very lucky i've had good educational opportunities a good chance the things in life and i came into my my husband always tells the story that when he he met me first service a student then i got a very good job when i came out of university i left and i went working for the trade unions which meant that my income dropped i then left the trade unions to work for shit and fein which meant that my income dropped again and he said to me no you need to stop that because the next thing is you go into work and you know you have to pay them to show up so i am the kind of person that goes on political instinct things that i believe in and i passionately believe in social justice. i believe in irish unity i believe in getting things done i believe rather than
7:53 am
sitting on the sidelines and giving i wish that if you actually want to live in a better country if you want to live in a better world there's actually a responsibility on you to go and do something about that so that's how long story short i got involved in political matters wasn't your first choice. for the future for you when i came of age the politics that i knew in the political atmosphere that i was accustomed to or comfortable in was fianna fáil. i discovered very quickly that that was exactly the wrong place for me to be because i'm an irish nationalist i mean united darren ender but i am also a person who believes that social justice and equality is the other side of that coin what good freedom if not an equal and. so for me shin fein blended perfectly in. still does that concern for self-determination for freedom but also a very keen sense of building an equal society and giving people not just rhetorical
7:54 am
lip service around opportunity or prosperity but actually making those realities in people's lives but shouldn't they be traditional strong woman little. less opposed to the course of this market one hundred years ago the first woman elected to the house of commons but of course as an abstention it's never too close to seat you mention markovitch there i mean air a giant of irish history a phenomenal woman. who one hundred years ago this year was elected to the house of parliament. but who was in jail at the time and who in any event was an abstention as a politician and just like shane fein m.p.'s now we don't take our seats we continue in that tradition because for us irish political decisions are to be made rightfully in our union for irish people and then so many other women down through through the years and it would be fair to say that although the perception of sion
7:55 am
fame correctly has been of a very male partially because irish politics sadly has been very male there has always been a strong hold horse of of women in leadership positions in sion fan i think what's changed now is that more of us are in public representatives of roles and public leadership roles and i'm very proud to serve in that same tradition as marquis of h. and more a drum and margaret buckley and so many others and i'm very humbled to be the woman who in modern arlen now leads from the front and is is the their own shouldn't feign you know last month when you accept a nomination president shouldn't feed you you famously said that you were going to try to fill julia adams the shoes. because you brought your own. what did you mean by that exactly i suppose i meant two things firstly that gerry adams has defined i believe irish political life for a generation he is
7:56 am
a person without him the peace process i believe would not have happened. the person who charted in a very concrete way the democratic pathway to irish freedom. the person in the leader who managed to bring the ira relatively intact on the journey and a person who stayed very very true to his background to his tradition whilst at the same time being and credible radical in terms of modernizing the shin fein party and building it from the ground up so he is as they say some act to follow and i won't fill his shoes i won't be attempting to but then i don't need to because i have my own as you say because i think it is so important for anybody coming into political leadership to have a sense of their own journey to have a sense of their own identity their own generation in leadership and i think
7:57 am
particularly for women because it is still something of a novelty to have women in the most senior of leadership roles and i am the person that i am a dubliner of a certain generation i have consequently a view that is different from my predecessor on many things a different approach and i think it's very very important to say that sense of i suppose novelty and change from the from the very beginning but you rightly say that gerry adams brought should the food to support a peaceful path to too early should look to but still the case before shouldn't be associated with the the struggle of the troubles more recently you think that is a. a significant opportunity for departure of the group for your part but certainly a change and i think it is a reflection of the success the political successes that have accrued over the past
7:58 am
twenty years and more that you have as you say me as a leader of shin find the leader of the irish republican movement with with no association with the troubles or the conflict. but also you now have a whole generation of people who have been born on this island who never lived one day of conflict in ireland a generation of children born in belfast and derry and in the glens of them for whom talk about the troubles on the conflict is the stuff of history books no don't get me wrong some of the consequences and the pain of that conflict is still here and we still need to deal with us but that is a mighty change an entire generation of young people who have come up and who have no experience of pressure soldiers on the streets or armed actions by or a volunteers or the u.v.'s for the u.g.a.
7:59 am
and that is a massive transformation and something that's extremely positive a very good reflection so yes it is a change. i'm also from what they called the south even from the east coast dublin's actually on the east and the south first and so fish in fane very often associated as a northern parsi a parsi of the north i think it's now clear that we are truly a national organization and that's always been the case but as we grow in political strands rice across the provinces of ireland and now that the major is a job. i think that kind of rights national pin in lights in a way that perhaps wasn't the case before. welcome to max kaiser financial survival guide. looking forward to your pension
8:00 am
