to say they are frustrated at how little has changed. it's almost been a year since the devastating blaze and what's left of the grenfell tower can be seen here behind the scaffolding it's a harrowing reminder of a tragedy that has left many questions unanswered. there are over a hundred tower blocks in london alone similar to grand felt and people living here want their government to make sure that it is also like that does not happen again it's like a year now and we're still living in the same situation when we found out altered it was the truth when. it just costs us praise and just thinking this is cheap material why would you risk the lives of so many people into this food comes in the street. so we know that it's obviously not safe before it could
happen again the moment zones are becoming the book of mormon homes with so what can the residents of tower blocks like these do in an emergency they advised used was to stay put but now according to the london fire brigade is being changed to similar taney as evacuation because of the farmable clopping however the government is yet to ban it tourism a promise to spend four hundred million pounds to replace unsafe cladding on high rise public housing projects just sixteen of the tower blocks have had their having material replaced with non combustible materials so all the authorities doing enough awful lot of government haven't done enough. to the needs of those of us which by going through in terms of the people that experience when family i don't think they're doing enough for them not nearly enough no i think the issue with the clothing they should have resolved upon our. choice i could see i mean we go i
didn't see one sort of coming over and sleeping the things. what struck me as i've spoken to a number of residents who live here at the child courts estate in camden is the fear in their eyes at the thought that they too could have lost their lives and now they're after clarification from the government as to what's going to happen next to resolve those problems and action to be taken now dear tutor r.t. the u.k.'s housing minister says the government is listening to concerns and will discuss a policy review concerning a ban on flammable materials in construction all this time on over two thirds of former growth for residents yet to be read while some eighty two households are still living in emergency accommodation one campaigner whose home overlooks the charred remains of grenfell towers says it's got little hope that the government's words will turn into anything more concrete we haven't seen corresponding option on to see action it's difficult to believe the government why ask for consultation if
we know that they are calm boss table materials still around buildings today we shouldn't discuss it in part on it we should take action to d. because we need to have an adult grenfell they should be versity they should be presentation if there is no representation in democracy is not democracy is not just issue right to cause more year to argue that we need a diversity in that it is taken of the year to see that we view what was obvious how long will it justice. the facebook boss again found himself hauled before lawmakers to apologize for the exploitation of eighty seven million users data this time it was european m.p.c. questioning him about the social network's protection standards and his handling of the situation when it was alleged that cambridge analytical heard exploited accounts for years to influence users opinion. said facebook is taking steps to prevent similar incidents in the future but some lawmakers are still left unhappy
by those responses first because some of them spent twice as much time asking their questions than zuckerberg spent answering them who decides what is acceptable why is there no transparency in this process at all which specific measures that will be taken very peaceful to ensure that just scandal like the one your victims would not accumulate whether the question of protection of privacy in the rules and free speech that you were asked in congress is actually the tip of the iceberg or is there a bigger iceberg there was one question raised very good for who said and to my question i asked you six yes or no question so you're not a single piece or. vomit sure we follow up and get your answers to those. it emerged in march that fifty million facebook profiles may have been breached by the british political data company that was revised up to eighty seven million the
public backlash saw the facebook boss take out full page newspaper ads in britain and america to say sorry but that didn't stop the delete facebook hashtags from trending nor did it save the company from being investigated by regulators is what political activist and social campaigner george barda told me of the hearing and the wider facebook data scandal. i think there's a sort of pattern that comes out from these these congressional hearings or parliament hearings they're quite stage a lot of the time is taken up with questions and you know mark zuckerberg is quite practiced trying to seem contrite and actually kind of avoiding a lot of detail when whenever any really key questions are asked in terms of the detail his response tends to be not really sure i'll get back to you on it and so i think largely these are sort of pieces of political theater to some extent that from facebook's point of view are to be managed to avoid really having to do that
much to change it seems. the question is how do we bring these and real public scrutiny in terms of facebook having to account for the way they treat information the way they prioritize some things over others etc and i think these things need to become hugely more transparent and i think we're just at the beginning of working out how to how to get the right balance between holding these companies to account and allowing governments to interfere with them essentially and not on the other hand allowing governments too much power in the name of controlling facebook. the transparency that we require going forward absolutely has to include the algorithms because ultimately this is the central question what is being shown to who and for what reason and most importantly given so much information or power over the decades and centuries in
fact has been about making sure that things are left out of the story and the crucial thing is that there is you know initially transparency and then some sort of accountability in terms of the kind of algorithms that facebook is allowed to use. thanks be with us this morning or if you choose to run the world coming up washington's awash with fresh controversy as president trump orders an investigation into the f.b.i. surveillance of his twenty sixteen. election campaign to tell you all about that more.
has twenty sixteen probe into alleged russian collusion was legal and this kind of motion explained it's starting to become difficult to find someone that hasn't been caught up in the huge wave of suspicion over it all. the u.s. department of justice is currently expanding its investigation into whether or not its investigation of donald trump is legal are you confuse don't worry so lots of americans this is just a slice of the pie political leaders on both sides of the aisle are being investigated for criminal offenses with their opponents calling for them to be locked up make america great again. that's our president and the media is fantasizing about seeing him in handcuffs or if he fires any secret service agent who would allow the federal marshals and one of the ultram simply decides i don't have to follow the law i refuse to be held under the law no marshal can get into this white house and any secret service agent
that defies me is fired well at some point he's going to have to come out of the white house trump's old nemesis isn't in the clear either i think that there is a lot to investigate. she may not be in the headlines very much after her electoral defeat however we did find out last week that she's still under investigation much to the delight of donald trump who once promised to put her behind bars it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the law in our country because you'd be in jail secretary clinton. and then there's obama's topps by john brennan the former cia director he was concerned about because of known russian effort.
trying call him a disk. race to the american intelligence community and one former u.s. attorney thinks he ought to be assembling a legal team n.b.c. news is consulting the former director of the central intelligence agency the most part is in fact leader of the cia in history needs a very very good lawyer criminal lawyer yes criminal oh yes and then there's devon newness now he's been digging up dirt on the intelligence community but now he's got some of his own we are going to get the documents. members of congress want him to be looked into basically what he has done is he is scuttled and put a cloud over his own investigation and he has become the subject basically he
should be going to mr gates that is a real problem investigations are flying like bullets in a western shoot out high profile politicians are being accused of breaking u.s. laws and could face legal proceedings this is leads fighting one another and this kind of legal war and that has nothing to do really what the american people and it's a great distraction actually from the issues that are important to the american people but it's consuming the white house now consuming the f.b.i. it's consumed the democratic party there's enormous tension between both sides if things are pretty ugly right now pretty ugly between the sides and i think it's going to get worse i really do is this just politics work at some of these charges actually stick. artsy new york. the palestinian foreign minister is calling for the international criminal court to launch an immediate investigation into the recent violence on the gaza border last monday the israeli military shot dead scores of until capacious protesters in that
besieged on klav it came as the u.s. completed its controversial relocation of its embassy to jerusalem. the u.n. is also said to start its own probe into whether israel committed war crimes. ah. but not only. was that of course the. earth. was. worth the earth. with. the last week the un's human rights council passed a resolution condemning israel's actions as wholly disproportionate saying that they amounted to an indiscriminate use of force britain was among fourteen
countries that abstained and there are also reports this morning the british diplomats planned to visit the new u.s. embassy in jerusalem despite earlier condemning the move the position of your kingdom is we don't agree with the decision of the u.s. to to move their embassy we continue to think that that's the playing the wrong card at the at the wrong time but we remain absolutely committed to a two state solution i've talked to former british ambassador peter ford he accused britain of apocrypha see in his foreign policy right now. the british government are being very feeble with this they made what seemed we could go to be a principled position by boycotting the theremin a march the opening what's described as the american embassy in jerusalem but then days after it appears to be business as usual many people say oh this is hypocrisy let's imagine what the situation would be if russia had for example
recognized east jerusalem as the capital of palestine and set up or made it take this being consul general in east jerusalem and empathy with the british position of being to continue doing business with it no way there would have been horrified exclamations legal arguments would have been found to justify britain's position of having nothing to do with this russian embassy double standards. you can follow last stories are just so much more a great site called here in moscow this wednesday morning is kevin owen saying as ever thanks for watching more for newsroom in just over half an hour and well great programs in your part of the world for you right after the show pray.
