i live. is a quick song how we got to be in this country second mom in. law teacher and legal consultant for the mayor of st petersburg ninety nine it's a defense is the end of an election she's the future this campaign season with and yet that it becomes just she's a star is a couple of years later like two thousand stories he's the first deputy prime minister then in two thousand acres and with a new russian president. dmitry medvedev so what was his town like buzz words modernization pushing the reset button relations. military conflict five days south since you were triggered by georgia. having finished his presidency effective switch which by future it will work for the good piano player has turned
with a ring russia's economic storm in the face of sanctions tumbling oil prices raising the nation's salaries and benefits unless it's not a good mind to be holding his hand to keep tellin you getting the ticket when you might have been worth it if you're going to shut your mind you can't you know i don't think you deal in the things that are going to predict what the overall numbers will be what i think that. some forty percent of russians said they trusted but still surely that she would not be looking to go it does but it does say do you want to say leadership is the police get the good deal of attention . and that's all you need to know about the future better than just like the two million. hundreds of interpreters who worked with the british army in afghanistan are now facing the threat of deportation from the u.k. the spot of promise that they would be allowed to stay we spoke to one of those
potentially affected who says the only thing awaiting him in afghanistan would be death. if they deport me back there is only one tries for me to be killed he doesn't know when but the u.k. home office has informed abdul bari that he's going to be deported to kabul within the next three months abdul says he can't go back to afghanistan because he worked as a frontline interpreter for british forces from two thousand and eight to two thousand and ten my life is in danger my family and i have some danger they threatening me but they told me that you know that he joined the infidels. you've been talking about there was only one chance for me and i must leave the country. so can talking to the mean time to post from family so if they catch me they would definitely just leave the country the british defense secretary gavin williamson has made headlines in recent days by telling the home office that afghan interpreters should be
allowed to stay in the u.k. but that reassurance only refers to around four hundred form a interpreters who had been given five year you tavi says they expire soon and all the all sorts he's of done in reality as say that they'll waive the costly renewal fees would serve those celebrator you headlines don't apply to the six hundred or so former afghan interpreter is still in kabul who have had their asylum claims rejected nor do they applied to the handful of complicated cases relating to former interpreters who were forced to flee and entered the u.k. illegally like abbeville all of us are delighted that those who've had their criteria and their families are here and will stay here and they'll be paid the money there are still people who are being looked at and we need to be careful that we don't better you fall through the debts we have
a debt of honor to these people and what we mustn't do is leave someone who actually worked for us looked after. soldiers helped us we mustn't leave someone like that in a position where they and their families will be at risk and we've got to be very clear make sure we don't do that abdul says he didn't have time to apply for a visa through the official interpreter scheme while he was still in kabul that required months of waiting and his life was increasingly at risk now abdul's lawyer is appealing the home office's moves to deport him many interpreters got these fish directly from afghanistan through the ministry defense relocation was very strict criteria that required you to be. working in helmand province and to be made redundant on or after the nineteenth of december twenty twelve a lot of people i missed the. word working in two thousand and twelve because they were threatened and targeted by the taliban hard to quit their jobs and flee it's
not really fair to make this journey to the you care to escape these threats to be told actually go home they're saying it's it's there for him to relook at we have evidence from former employees not just from the british army but they also he was working with and be in kabul what he really cared to the originator of. but evidence suggests he was threatened in kabul. and. the same will happen again he will be targeted when it comes to its own citizens the u.k. government clearly warns against travel to almost all of afghanistan even districts in the heavily guarded capital kabul it adds that terrorists are very likely to carry out attacks and methods are evolving and increasing in sophistication but that's apparently safe enough for abdul barry to return as far as the u.k. government is concerned i don't play with a couple loose so you cos i think i'm always the most dangerous place in the world at the moment because every bomb is exploding people are dying. i
don't. the home office the same couple who say i first met up till a couple of months ago since then his already fragile mental state has worsened to surviving thirty five pound a week and time accommodations are more allowed. so i can do nothing but. something i have a very bad depression so i've been to many times some medicine from them but that doesn't work. i'm still struggling i ask him about what he wants to do if and after all this he wants to work he'd read economics at university and kaberle he wouldn't mind resurrecting his professional boxing career either but his talk is tentative working and living here sounds like
believe facebook's market share is increasing despite all the loot concerning its surveillance technology that. high's better including foreign governments but yeah the multi-trillion dollar market cap of these companies is a testament to the nature of the platform is now superseded the nation state facebook's got two billion users that's bigger than china so it's the biggest kind of entity there is in the world or has ever been in the world probably ever be in the. russian defense ministry says that a russian military helicopter has crashed in eastern syria during a routine mission called into the ministry both pilots were killed in the incident and their bodies have been retrieved from the site technical malfunction is being suggested as the cause of the crash the incident the aircraft involved was
a car fifty two attack helicopter and also known as alligator they have been used by russian troops in syria since twenty sixteen. it's been a furious response of france over don't transmit mccree a victim super shot in the twenty fifteen paris terrorist attacks the president's remarks came in a speech to the u.s. national rifle association. they took their time and gun them down one by one. come over here. come over here. but if you want to employ. we're just one patient had a gun. the terrorist would have fled or been shot. yes that was president trump suggesting the terror attacks in paris in two thousand and fifteen could have had fewer victims if god knows when so restrictive one hundred thirty people were killed in the attack and hundreds were injured it's.
his words where laptop by members of the largest gun rights lobbying group in the u.s. . with france so they hit a very wrong and there are many sound comes from marxist disrespectful and insensitive to the victims and their families while the foreign ministry and least perhaps the harshest criticism of trump since micron took the presidential reins i'm a common trump those two a tight. expresses its firm disapproval of prison trumps comments about the powers to tax on november the thirteenth two thousand and fifteen and demands that the memory of the victims be respected board. could have abstained from his comments about the events that shouted old french people he might take back his words and express regret for them. but france isn't the only u.s. ally to be prodded by donald trump at the convention trump believes the u.k.
is suffering from a problem of its own they don't have guns they have now lives alone leaves knives knives transfer marks of course upset before in britain that this time the u.k. officials and paired have developed a thick skin and that it slide however across the channel many feel trapped twisting the knife in a deeply a pen wind. tens of thousands rocks through heavy metal superstar front man tank here and the sirat in the couple of armenia to support massive opposition protests earlier the system of a down bokeh list of rallies to stay peaceful after more than three weeks of vast demonstrations that have already forced out next prime minister. protestors a fuming parliament failed to approve opposition leader nicole question yanez the new premier despite being the only candidate who vote again on his candidacy tuesday with the ruling party this time pledging to back him.
and then you'll turn kilometer running race through the french company won't be held this year due to the high number of homeless people many of the migrants camped out along the route it's a problem many had hoped would have eased over the last year the charlotte dubin school reports. president machen had pledged that by the beginning of two thousand and eighteen no one would be sleeping rough on the streets of france let alone her and yet not only did he fail to deliver on the promise but it's getting worse much worse it's believed that up to one thousand eight hundred migrants have set up camp along the canal here in paris and fears that that could explode to around two and a half thousand in the next few weeks has caused the organizers of the great race to graham paris to cancel the annual event.
the ten kilometer race between paris and song to me was to take place in just over a week's time but this is part of where the run is supposed to come through and as you can see it would be virtually impossible for them to navigate this section of the racecourse these makeshift camps are growing day by day the route is impossible it is disturbing to have to run the race in the middle of a refugee camp at last year's race around six and a half thousand people took part it was also adopted as part of paris's bid to host the twenty twenty four olympics embodying a couple of the games key objectives solidarity and ecology this cancellation so
close to race day has disappointed many you know it's kind of unfair or because of improvising for one time and then you just cancel it last minute just. like they should have reworded it yeah that's what i think so it's two separate problems you just do your race if your do your race and in the rider problem is something else i think they should fix that they help them more. you know when you walk in the street you can see them all the people lying on the sidewalks despite pledges to help migrants off the streets the greater paris region currently only has room to shell to seven hundred and fifty individuals far fewer than the numbers already here a number said to be growing in the hundreds each week organizers say they didn't want the camps to be cleared just so that the race could go ahead reluctant to be seen as a toothless social exclusion but safety concerns meant that they couldn't we reach either. participants have been offered refunds or
a place in next year's event assuming of course there is one charlotte even ski r.t. paris. new racism scandalous in the world of fashion after the cover of vogue italy featured a famous model with a noticeably darker skin tone normal is the photo of supermodel g.g. how did that spot the controversy or social media people pointed out the skin and facial features were photoshop to appear darker and others say the photo is a piece of art and there's nothing racist about it instead of just hiring someone of a different culture they transform a white girl change her skin and demanded her makeup to make her look more ethnic change hair color etc oh ok this is normal why couldn't you use a black model instead of saying black face honestly so ignorant disgusting disappointed in the modeling industry these days there is literally nothing in black face about this people can't even look tan anymore without others making it
something it's not you're making a response out of everything even when it's not she doesn't look black here she looks brunette i think the intention was to show a power of transformation and he wanted to do it on a red a very famous model known as blonde it is art is magnificent some people just don't deserve. do you had it in vogue italy have both apologized saying the photo wasn't meant to offend the magazine said that it had been trying to create a bronzed beach look because the commentator steve malzberg believes that the scandal is just a fuss over nothing. here you have a beautiful blue eyed blonde model one of the top models in the world and they put some bronze on her and they photoshop the picture now she looks i mean you could say she looks black or african-american she looks bronze to me but this is a whole big issue now where people take offense and they call it cultural appropriation in other words you're stealing their culture so it's really at
a hand and we have to get over this in our society or it's going to do a very very much harm so i see nothing wrong with the shoe i think people are too sensitive and i think it's getting outta hand political correctness is getting at a hand. speaking to be to model so much better to look at the maze coming up next on tackling the good will be here with the latest in half an hour. i am . above.
in the middle of the sixties there were thirteen million students enrolled in higher education in two thousand and fifteen there were two hundred million in less than fifteen years there are expected to be four hundred million. who is shall not heard you hold life easier to even mention to her left b. do nothing at all door and door. while the demand keeps growing university tuition fees skyrocket the world over. the cost of education is high increasing. for condos. i don't understand how can a school be a scam. in the name of so called economic pragmatism and as a result of international competition university is a turning into a huge money making machine. i know my family members went to university i think i wanted to be i wanted to be got one. from shanghai to new york to berlin countries around the world reflect trying different moves
each remodelling its system in its own way but at what price and who profits from it was. at the starting point of us story which begins at the end of the ninety's. at that time you had this financial izing itself all the while expanding many intellectuals european university presidents and expert groups engage in a vast reflection on how to build a more complete more ambitious europe. how to strengthen its intellectual scientific and technological influence. what is the secret of the united states and its economic power. the answer lies in higher education and research.
a realm that has become undeniably strategic. well. they're the equal at the end of the twentieth century american universities. andrew europe is afraid afraid of finding itself on the sidelines it needs a strategy and so european gauges in a series of reforms to make its higher education more competitive so it can serve europe's economy its productivity its job market and its liberal project england will quickly set the tone before anyone else and to get straight to the point. after the second world war we had a system where local education authorities around the country were responsible for providing a grant to students and giving of covering tuitions fees. and that was at
a time when roughly three percent of eighteen year olds went to university around twenty thousand. all science students will. be required to attend lectures on physics chemistry mathematics and biology it will also be possible for science students to major in philosophy. knowledge is not bullshit look back at a huge never world one in one and covering all sides of all places all. in the one nine hundred eighty s. and nine hundred ninety s. there was a funding crisis amongst universities lots of vice chancellors complaining that they didn't have enough money to cover the amount of students are now coming through the system so the government commissioned a report and this was called the deering reports and that came up with a number of recommendations almost one hundred recommendations roughly half for the
government about how it could. maintain sustain and improve higher education in the u.k. and one of the most controversial parts of that report was the introduction of. i in one thousand nine hundred seventy the british left led by its young charismatic candidate tony blair wins the elections after eighteen long years of conservative rule. at the age of forty three the head of the labor party takes charge of the country with a program whose foundation is to apply private sector management models to public services so as to make them more efficient more productive. higher education will be no exception. right. we need to widen access to universities get more money into universities and the best and fairest way to do it is a balance between the state and the graduate. face became reality and nine hundred
ninety eight and it was a key landmark in the history of higher education in the u.k. because at that moment the principle of free education free higher education in the u.k. finished. for this historic reform tony blair introduces the yearly one thousand pound tuition fee a smooth way to start for. prompted by his second term election tony blair authorizes universities to charge tuition fees up to three thousand three hundred pounds. tony blair head of britain's labor party successfully passed a reform that the conservatives would never have dared bring forward. in two thousand and ten the labor party rallies the opposition the coalition made of liberal democrats conservatives led by david cameron take charge of the country very rapidly the debate over jewish and fees arises on the political scene again
this time the government intends to authorize tuition fees up to nine thousand pounds all the while reducing the portion of public funding and it catered to universities this new reform violently divides both members of parliament and public opinion that have been very difficult choices to make we have opted for a such of policies that provide a strong base for university funding which makes a major contribution to reducing the deficit and introducing a significantly more progressive system of graduate paper and stuff we inherited and i'm proud to put forward that magic to this. area. in order. to know that. there is nothing a bank that chinee benefit to the lowest income graduates that justifies doubling or tripling the debt of the vast majority of right isn't it credible that the party
opposite who actually introduced the principle of graduates paying and voted for two jewish and fee increases is able to drum up quite so much faith and brought the issues down there was any young person ask any young person in any poor communities in our country what is your prospect what is your what do you want to do many would say. i want to study i want to qualify i want to go to university i want to achieve something in life. hell that. unless they are very cool they can have to borrow money to survive to get through university they simply will not do it this decision matches so much to so many people. i'd say to the house if you don't believe in it vote against it was. the right three hundred twenty three you know most of
the last three hundred true. god. god. was when the church was really from three thousand it became one thousand pounds i was up to the university if they wanted to introduce nine thousand pounds a maximum face or anything between six thousand and nine thousand and one surprisingly most university decided to set nine thousand pounds most students we have now half a million students going through every year most of those will be paying a minimum nine thousand pounds a year and that's stan's. over the course of fifteen years british politicians are ruling class that enjoyed free
access to education inflicted a paying system on the new generation. british students along with a european fellows now have to deal with these new rulings that's the way it is. they're young they long for a solid future that dusty for knowledge and dream of climbing the social ladder all that has a price tag and they'd better get used to him. and to grow up in a working class family in the south of poland a young woman could have enrolled in a university in krakow in copenhagen or even amsterdam. it would have been free in england and it was granted a student loan to pay for her nine thousand pounds tuition fee. i knew i was going to go abroad to study and i think well for a little while i thought it was going to be scotland but then. i think i decided it
was england you know like way back and it just stuck with me and i and i came here and it was it was scary it was so scary because i was away from home i was here alone i didn't have anywhere to turn to and look at me now i study chinese of all the crises that i could have chosen i can't wait for you know what the future holds and what i'm going to do i have so many ideas but we'll see. i talked to my grandfather once and they're talking about everything else and then kind of started talking about university and how much money that costs and everything and i had many thoughts about ok maybe maybe i'll quit maybe i'll you know it's too much maybe it's not worth it and then i realized well how my going to pay it back but that's one of the reasons why i stayed and other reason bigger even is that i like what i do i think i'm not quite sure where that came from my need to
go to university i think is because. none of my family members went to university i think i wanted to be i wanted to be that one first person who did that and my mom my mom really wanted me to do that as well she did encourage me strongly i don't know what i would do with her if i fail i would i would feel like i failed her and i never want to do that ever. because. being here and doing what i do and being university is my way of paying her back problem that she's to me i think. yeah i'm good it's my way of paying back for everything. and.
