2:30 pm
rush to conclusions with the same time rushing to blame moscow again and the media going into overdrive of course will play a quick clip of. streaming live on facebook the address is facebook dot com for slash c n n i do please send your comments your thoughts on this question who is to blame for this and loads of you have already been messaging us tom says it's not just the u.k. every civilized country needs to take a stand against putin's of c. blaming putin direct for this it's time to hit russia hard with sanctions. so almost open competition the who do you want to blame for this a putin b. putin c. putin should the british m.p.'s be rushing to conclusions as well is this narrative helpful. well you're absolutely right there's an entirely inconsistent now out if that's being pursued both by politicians and by the media certainly here in the u.k. for example in the media this morning we've got conflicting arguments all sides citing different experts qualified to varying degrees it must be said to talk about this
2:31 pm
subject some of whom are still saying that. such as it's described can easily be washed off hand spy just using baby wipes as indeed the police seem to be suggesting today in their advice to people. on the other hand it's extremely persistent and will last for ever according to a newspaper article i've read this morning and looking at what politicians are saying on the one hand as you say not that i should be jumping to conclusions about this notwithstanding that just a few a couple of days really after the initial script to resume a very clearly blamed russia for this and that the home secretary in the parliament just a few minutes ago in fact. said that it's russia that should provide an explanation for this not withstanding of course that russia must be said has repeatedly requested information from the british authorities about this that russia has repeatedly as far as i understand offer to assist the investigation these offers have been rebuffed again consistently but to put your thought is of course
2:32 pm
crucially what's really missing in the british media coverage of this american media coverage of this is that some four months and a day really now after the scripted incident which we can i think assume to some degree at least is probably linked to this incident in ames creek but still four months later despite one of the most intensive investigations implicit criminal history there is still no evidence being publicly produced of any suspects or to link this case with russia what would you make of the way this has been handled this latest case the emergency services extremely difficult job the brave one all obviously but given what happened only down the road four months ago and some of the pictures that we've seen of people not in protective gear in handling this kind of thing what would you make of all that. yes some comments been made and people are right to ask these questions of course different services have different protocols i notice that when the one of the victims recent victims was being put into the ambulance the ambulance man the paramedics seemed to be wearing hazmat
2:33 pm
equipment but the police officers were away nothing and that's because the police of course have rushed there to deal with this you know not thinking of their own protection probably against their own procedures but they're thinking about the victims of course also raises questions at the time this was considered to be a drug related issue on the day that this man was put in hospital why there for the ambulance stuff where in hazmat equipment that normally you'd only associate with this kind of chemical incident so that once again very many unanswered questions and questions which even in descriptive case four months later similar questions not answered ok for now told shubert in london really appreciate your insight on this thanks for joining us again on r.t. . in. other news now there's been a second night of violent protests in the french city of known to over the death of a twenty two year old man shot by police on tuesday protesters clashed with officers throwing molotov cocktails and setting fires in several districts police say that the young man refused to comply with orders and had reversed his vehicle into an officer while trying to avoid an identity check he was previously known to
2:34 pm
authorities and an investigation is still underway more details now from our team from correspondent jonathan. karl. didn't have all clashes took place in this neighborhood. just hundreds of meters away from the place where that young twenty two year old man was killed trying to escape a police jail there were clashes with some young people wearing balaclavas who went out on the streets to throw various objects at law enforcement locals who went out on their balconies or just opened their windows they too were throwing all kinds of things at them but we even saw potatoes and peas tossed at officers who retaliated with flash bangs in tear gas and these trash bins were set on fire by youth the police are trying to retake the neighborhood bit by bit to calm things down but the
2:35 pm
atmosphere remains highly tense and unfortunately law enforcement expect even more violence. in the afternoon this thursday here in moscow you're watching r t after the break we'll take a look ahead to tomorrow's first world cup quarterfinals. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. good politicians do something to. put themselves on the on the big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be brits. that's a good way to be for us this is what the forecast for you in the morning can't be
2:36 pm
good that i'm interested always in the waters of my. question. since the start of the world cup russian sports commentators have put cruelly sure on their list of teams capable of winning russians love to root for the underdog but will have sympathy for a rival impact on russia's quarterfinal time with croatia. i guess we're just ten days away from knowing the champions of the twenty eight hundred fifty four world cup and with that battling for a place in the final part is daniel balkans and he's actually got you covered across the final day.
2:37 pm
when i want to put on a very real world leader from well top twenty eight hundred studio just outside the home of his museum in russia's northern capital st petersburg with the last sixteen stage now complete anticipation is already building for the quarter final stage starting friday this year of why france clash and then belgium against brazil never called to get the biggest game for people here of course russia. with the england sweden game also taking place on the same day as well promises to be a real football fest over the coming days so we're here bring you the latest first game kicking off the quarterfinals. against france not second place in the. pipe are the teams like evenly matched absolutely of course can be looking for that star striker luis luis suarez. volley as well i'm out of the match that two goals that saved them. yeah sure defeat for
2:38 pm
a squad of course has three of the top expensive players in the world one of them forward kill a lot of talk about you know kind of justifies reputation as the world's hottest young talent it will come with a price on. that something has coped with very well with those two goals seven goals for that we saw in sochi yeah and in particular the quality of opposition in argentina. perhaps disappointing in the tournament that many people find see them of course with their star players and he really stepped up and shone on that big stage and of course as well benjamin goal to bring the game back to two two fantastic and you know you said you compared it to you know about a call on the technique and the spin on the ball yeah i was saying you know i think this torn that's going to bring out some some real demand especially for players from russia as well remember off to euro two thousand and. eleven not going to the west i think there's going to be a bit of that coming from from all squads as the result of all major tournament so i've been looking at he's adaptable he's big he's strong he can hold. the libya
2:39 pm
drouet in and a lot of ways and i think i'll be a lot of clubs in for him as well yeah yeah nice to be seen of course out fans are the main player the twelfth man in this tournament i played a massive part in driving the team forward as well the was . a. big game coming up on friday as well brazil taking on belgium and that's a city on the volga river about eight hundred kilometers east of moscow top names there of course. who are on for a new school that second goal in the game against japan brought them back from certain field thought to make at one point that was a fantastic game went up and belgium really coming out on top it looked like they were about to exit the tournament with last minute counter-attack goal on the break
2:40 pm
and finished off by child lee they managed to win three to know when. comes to brazil you know they've got the heritage and tradition in this tournament they won it five times and i think there's not going to be a lot of doubt that they can go with the giants coming out the top of as well you know germany always among the favorites argentina spain portugal out of me going now all of them heading out the tournament loud and messy as they say in russia meeting at the airport instead of mates in the final but embarrassing for them but a crowd of loyal supporters gathering this morning to welcome the resiliency month surprising of course they arrived in the city had of course the final match with the belgians on friday and i've been getting in some pre-match training as well with a new player perhaps one out of steve in the limelight one star player neymar brought his son along for training and the young one there and following in his dad's footsteps perhaps one day playing was ill when i was complete with all the tricks
2:41 pm
hopefully none of the gadgets there's going to stick for that and i'm yeah and they performed ok started the tour with us slowly but he scored twice so far during the world cup the key goal here in st petersburg did not tie against costa rica the game was only about point next injury time goal which helped brazil along however it's been his dramatic reactions or could be say overreaction to some of the tackles on the field and to no small amount of ridicule. cream fries or gee. thanks. from the world cup that was fear has been trying here the fans have been taking through all the ups and downs whole spectrum motions as we were for the english game well think of it a few grey hairs off the pounds she was. really interesting seeing them win a pregnancy or for once now there's been some friends who've traveled from all over
2:42 pm
the world to actually support russia the host nation in this world cup and i was fortunate enough to join a couple of them and get really unique and for. tufts of st petersburg. st petersburg it's all a q.b. one of the most beautiful and picturesque cities in all of russia it's considered the capital bulge of the north of the country and one photographer is offering people the opportunity to take in the stunning views the unique style by having photo shoots and a chill here on the rooftops. and that's all with me because i cough up a little small side but some ice just kind of people can fish from i mean from marsh up on the bottom some markers. have nice side you've got a commission such as you've taken your snout fish to become water to those who need so much support or. some of us shared so use it to go to the produce to you and
2:43 pm
you're still not shutting down on you know i mean so wonderful but membership. so guys just to the saddle but what do you think about this bill kind of tour it's amazing i mean if you look around the so many classy buildings all over the place and it's it's a really beautiful city you can see to cities bustling with the markets and everything because what do you think about the tournament itself the football that strangely i mean it's such an open turn in the sun there's no clear favorite or we're both rooting for a shot asli i mean we're in the stadium where they play spain was was just crazy so i suppose before in england in particular there's been a lot scaremongering and now back home a lot of our fans are angry with the government and with the media because they say you told us it was going to be this and yeah no actually i think you have to come here we have such a sort of cliche view about russia and the russian people when you hear. what a wonderful country first of all it is and how nice and great the russian people are by we said the world cup just adds to it because there's always plenty of people around to all everyone from the world to uniting for the football so it is
2:44 pm
just a great atmosphere. you know i think most of us fans really do sum up and i was so many people. it's in russia moscow st petersburg. been based in moscow for most of competition i've been here three years and colleagues of you know been born and bred here they've never seen anything like this festival so many people coming from all over the wild partying in the street drinking dancing singing. it's been a fantastic atmosphere so far no looks like it's just getting started almost and i've been here in st petersburg for the majority of the tournament i was in moscow for a bit and it's been amazing to that education to learn about the city its history the beauty of the buildings the people here are very friendly and open minded and it's been wonderful to be based up this i think all those tourists who come in the learning are like myself really you know taking a lot of of russia's cultural history so it's been it's been educational you know to come up definitely but doesn't compare. visa pipework started now with the
2:45 pm
composition funding on i caught up with my city get out he's a russian opera singer and on a bus an hour for up the world cup in that same petersburg we got things off on a bit of a higher than we think. we sleep world cup is a fantastic festival for russia fantastic event for said petersburg what does it mean to you to be the ambassador for this city and we need to sell it at the fair but you have no idea this is such an honor to represent our beautiful city hospital our great country at this feast of sport but i feel for world cup football i'm really proud and happy to be a part of it or just that way that we could go to but i take it you're obviously supporting a russia to go as far as they can but in terms of the other teams is there anybody perhaps that you watch what's in closely some other favorites perhaps that you want to see do well as well as i see of course i support russia but i'm rooting for football in general because of it pressurized and what is now happening in our country is absolutely amazing and we are rooting for the beautiful game but we are
2:46 pm
rooting for all these wonderful team has that came to russia i mean want to say thank you for all of this. and do you think people's expectations of me justified for this the full first of all along. of media perhaps reporting that maybe problems of all sorts with the organization without putting in russia how they would prove a writer of things gone very much to plan to start a team i've talked to many find myself and you won't believe it or not sheeple are amazed by our country because people here are really friendly you know signs we're expecting it to be freezing cold all of us with all these dos and bad as if that this is a wonderful country with wonderful people who have a car and i don't see the russian people are really welcoming you boy so don't be afraid to come to russia and see it for yourself see the east see it's perceivable nothing but you mustn't use next night i was with the could you. give me something to look up at the front of him. that i should back at you when you're the light. of the heart and i have all. you bought out of moscow you still haven't told

2:50 pm
these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. up . welcome to the rock. welcome to the alex sullivan show for the rock of gibraltar today massage and of our free fall serious we focus attention the peoples of the communities of us fascinating territories we delve into the history of the culture and we talk to some interesting characters of course there was a socialist who has your print job emails and your messages of course and ration to the banks issue and as ever there are strong opinions amy says campbell seems to
2:51 pm
forgotten those in the majority voted for banks it whether you agree with them or not they bought it democratically so this labor not believe in democracy anymore i'm brothers out on complementary about the d.p. he says how laughable are they just what family both an m.p.'s are on alex semin to that for the republic of ireland and the e.u. to itself i dish border crisis a bit like saying my dog has picked on the pavement and that is for my neighbors to clean it up grin benson and it spawns two trees amazing lack of getting into do you say it's has a pen you ever done less in the media i can't remember one involved interview with best lady artist and i says great alex salmond show breakfast special celtic nations well represented and rightly they should be wide variety of guests all alight to fix that constant interruption a battering bravo titan alex will thank you for that and then robert and a sponsor alex he said that he's unable to lease disliked pm i robot has at least
2:52 pm
but of an understatement there alex boy or rather i'm inclined to agree with you and bats the man himself and gibraltar. i'm not joined by will cain face and these bottles as a whole local historian knows just about everything that i still know about the rock face a welcome to the alex salmond show glad to be a. devil's gap which is a fantastic place to to talk about gibraltar but first i don't know a lot of places and gibraltar seem to have devils and then within that does not reflect the continent history most maybe why why not but people are not very annoyed with the names that we even had to an exhibition called follow that lead he added everything to the he was a very nice person but yeah we have about six or seven of angels point of a heavenly choir but we have many many churches and cathedrals to cater for that you know to think like that's the devil's god i mean you can see the changes taking place i mean when you were
2:53 pm
a lad it was the sea well the sea was much much closer than the places which are for example where i live today i used to fish and swim there once upon a time. the naval grounds which is where you see those buildings that i used to go to the boulevard to watch the and figures aircraft landing around the bay there was a guy in the back of the c. of the flag the military possibility has been a a military base of one kind of for thousands of years but that has changed dramatically in the last quarter of a century but tell us about that definitely i mean you brought us famous for what it is a fortress everybody knows the fortress of people so throughout the years we had people of all kinds living here from the most of the spanish to the british and with the british occupation i must tell you that it's been the f. zero point in british history remember this was the fall of two malta to egypt to south africa when they opened the swiss canal again a passage ships used to come here to to get coal and to chile and things like that
2:54 pm
so it's been very very important in the in the life line of great britain to put it that way but the percentage of military spending and abroad has gone from what sixty percent to six percent you know a couple of decades definitely has the rock coped with that well we've had to change from one thing to another for example what was once a dockyard is now a commercial yard and if you look in the docks. ironically you're going to see many spanish ships coming here to have refit instead of going to their own docks because we're more economic in your boat and they're in spain and i hear about the half the world shipping still comes through the straits of gibraltar i think it's the busiest. place in the world where ships come through with you and the defense forces yourself that you were thinking when you were you were doing the. let the see the day that financial services and gaming and tourism dominated the economy of that oh no way tourism was always i've always culture is on the scene they're eligible so it's always been there everybody can see what i want to see the agents in the case want to see the highlights but other than that you brought us how to
2:55 pm
change for the times and the situations we've been through spain causing his voters he said and i've always told people i said look it's one man's meat is another man's poison some businesses have to close other sprout as a result of what happens is it and i've always said that in gibraltar we had natural siva so much of what during the second world war the whole population was evacuated the civilians women children you know and we went through that my dad stayed behind was a goner but we've been through many many other episodes which have been we've been hit hard but i was a he was like a catch when you got me like that and you drop your we falls on his feet so how many lives of you had there where i feel if you i mean these changes affected the people we you know i faced me as a community which is a service base where a bit of created a shipping for men is a fundamental difference a community which is based on savages financial services things of that so how are the complection of the people of gibraltar changing as the economy changes we have
2:56 pm
to change with the times and people of the rotate is a very resilient you know the what was at the moment we go for that we don't say we have to break with traditions sometimes you know we have eighty how shall i say up to two to change a subject you can adopt no we do we have to adopt it whether we like it or not we have to we have to live with it and we kind of. living in the old colonial days you know just one of things like that things change and we have to adapt to the best means that unavailable people know the knows more than you about the history of the rock but tell me about the future confident are you of gibraltar continuing to flourish in this new world you brought us economy is very very sound we have very well founded as we live way and fortunate we have a neighbor who is always hampering us and we have to be here at their whims of whoever's governing in spain now if we had a better association with spain this would be paradise to start with look at this day. look at the iso we've got there refinery that was frank was doing that
2:57 pm
refinery was going to that although spain but they actually put in their twenty's the spanish workers you don't worry when we cross the border you've got a job sorry there's no jobs only for about eighty there reza to immigrate and that he had to land became a ghost town you know so much better when you've got spanish ancestry yourself like many many gibraltarians so that that difficult relationship with your neighbor must be a source of some some grief to you not that not me not really because what happens is i try to to convince people about the truth of things that happen i give talks and i always show things i don't just talk and i look look at this treaty look at what happened here look at what happened there and when they see it with their own eyes or where we've never been told that well i'm telling you now look how how like goebbels you say give give it a lie tell it so many many times that you do come to believe it and that's that that's our spanish friends there and some say they would even admit that they're
2:58 pm
wrong i remember one telling me of the not the only nation that doesn't do that now but i tell you one of the remember. i'm sorry for you if you will tell us what the british did us or what did to be dislodging they close the border you know it was spain no no it wasn't another thing i'm trying to to to to infiltrate is that with this coast sovereignty things that they're offering gibraltar and i said. tomorrow mexico is a free course orange is the united states so well even to know about that if they build the wall then present some by example i want to come to your tito that the bank may get a siege in the early eighteenth century i mean if i had been an english gentleman said of a scottish general defect i probably would have said end up i don't think so the pride was too much at the time that and remember we had germans here as well we had the head of aliens fighting alongside the british here ok so that was one of the branches milestones in history and a few of the first world war both german soldiers and british soldiers had the same
2:59 pm
am with me from the siege is a broad exactly the drop the sleeve which tells us that history has a way of fixity attempts to the future you think the rock is standing strong we're standing strong and i hope that our neighbors. try and follow our example i mean with this new government of the guardian they need to change their laws they're still very antiquated they are traditionally a center left government in spain has been friendlier towards good relations and then the popular party asserts is a senior holy exactly much lamented not a value but is a piece of this evil to me because we're going in in a very nice. way you know the first time that's the event the spanish airline came to gibraltar the first time the other foreign secretary officially continued broader and things were looking good and all of a sudden these people come in and they crush everything they had done we even had it is due to said eventually gibraltar you know they took that away as well as. honest and we have to live with what happens next though unfortunately if you do i
3:00 pm
can guarantee the future but what i can do is guarantee you and alex i am unclear you know the drill oh yeah let's get in a quick pass and load your many close friends but of course i did have a go at that. and i thank you very much i think a lot of. the rock is not just about high politics and high property prices that is a flag waving cultural hinterland the gibraltar and one of its cultural icons joins me now david ben tata good afternoon welcome to the examiner show thank you there are so many save me about scottish about that name after almost almost no not quite originally the name comes from morocco from the reef mountains if used to be bin sultan sons of sultan on the wrong side of the bed. and then the family when you bomber jubal theory i was born here and i just think that these are a genuine cultural underpinning of the rock incredibly strong.
