to make her case not just with brussels by sending a letter officially requesting this to the european council but also here in westminster where she is still battling on trying to convince her m.p.'s to support her but according to teresa mayes critics nothing about what's been going on has been reasonable or sensible all she's doing is running down the clock after a second heavy duty today was just marks one thousand days since the referendum and this government is lead the country and themselves into crisis chaos and division while just to be clear for any such extension to actually be able to take place we need to see european member states to all come together and approve such an extension and we have seen in response to official to the official plea from theresa me to have an extension a statement made by the european council president. believe the show to extension
2:03 pm
would be people should be. but two of the condition of all the positive votes on that was the road we meant in the house of well where this leaves to resubmit a really remains uncertain at this particular moment of course if you remember this is the deal that has been rejected twice at the house of commons so here he is saying that we want you to approve this deal and then you can have the extension while this is a deal that you know is not getting approval here in westminster so the way things stand now we are indeed done nine days away from march twenty ninth then legally speaking this is when the u.k. where britain is supposed to leave the european union unless some kind of magical new development take place takes place. russia's foreign minister is warning against the emergence of a new arms race on an even greater scale than the cold. speaking at
2:04 pm
a disarmament conference in geneva so go for all of said he regrets america's willingness to undermine some cornerstone treaties on controlling weapons stockpiles in turn washington question moscow's intentions in preventing an arms race or details now from our things where if a national russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov i have to say has been very critical and has in fact accused america of destabilizing world security lover of has expressed his dippers concerns frustration and fear is over the current situation in the field of nonproliferation of weapons and global arms control emphasizing that africa is designed to destroy global basic agreements that proved to be doing their job well in guaranteeing world security and protecting international peace are rising and this is a very dangerous tendency a lover of has particularly referred to america's recent to withdrawal from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty known as the i am after treaty signed
2:05 pm
between moscow and washington back in nineteen eighty seven warning that the recent developments may turn threats of nuclear warhead into a groom reality. through which we are now hearing is talk of the possibility of unleashing a limited nuclear war for russia and i hope all the other countries represented here such a prospect is unacceptable however such a scenario could become a reality if we together fail to find a sensible alternative to recent tendencies aimed at undermining the very edifice of arms control treaties should there be a new arms race a lot of countries will rely on their nuclear and missile arsenals as the only guarantee of their national security russia has responded by saying that it will also suspend its obligations under the agreement but speaking of the conference in geneva earlier on wednesday minister lavrov has stressed that it wasn't russia's decision it wasn't russia's initiative russia has simply responded and russia.
2:06 pm
remains open for the dialogue and is not interested in any way in arms race with the washington but as moscow can see right now washington is not ready for these dollars and this is what minister lavrov has read to read it one more time and he has brought among other things america's recent steps in developing space missile defense program alarming steps as the lover of billions. in the u.s. funds have been earmarked for the establishment of a space missile defense system as well as putting strike capabilities into orbit this is opening pandora's box as minister lavrov has said russia hopes and believes that its western partners colleagues are responsible for global security and at the end of the day the future of the mankind will hear russia's voice and follow the right path. the case of mistaken identity has forced facebook into making an apology after a band donald trump social media director believing him to be
2:07 pm
a boss and of more pain as the details. of an apology from facebook for banning the account of damn scab and all the white house social media director they are confirming that it is indeed outrageous to claim that he was a bot that the account was definitely not a bot account it wasn't legit account and that he should not have been blocked in order to stop automated bots we count the amount of identical repetitive activity coming from one account in a short period of time such as mentioning people these limits can have the unintended consequence of temporarily preventing real people like ben's could be no from engaging in such activity but lift in an hour or two which is what happened in this case we've been in touch with him and have apologized for the inconvenience trip was quick to speak up on social media saying that it was a political move not motivated by alleged bought activity trump spoke up saying facebook google and twitter now. to mention the corrupt media are so on the side of
2:08 pm
the radical left democrats but fear not we will win anyway just like we did before he also attacked the media as he often does when speaking to reporters during his meeting with bolton narrow use the word collusion very loosely all the time and i will tell you there is collusion with respect to that because something has to be going on and when you get the back scene back office statements made by executives of the various companies and you see the level of. in many cases hatred they have for a certain group of people that happened to be in power that happened to have won the election you say that's really unfair conservative lawmaker devon newman is his at this point suing twitter saying that it discriminates against conservatives that it hides the message of conservatives and highlights libel and slander against conservatives at this point there is widespread criticism of social media outlets
2:09 pm
for the fact that they seem to have a huge amount of influence in crafting public opinion not only in the united states but around the world and many of the conservatives who are now criticizing social media mana. they essentially argue that they're abusing that power and censorship concerns are also being debated in australia at the moment for very different reasons and i on tuesday the country's largest telecoms company blocked access to a number of websites that are continuing to display footage of friday's mosque attacks in new zealand to says that while it's considered the implications for freedom of speech it believes the measures necessary given the circumstances. we have moved to temporarily block a number of websites that continue to host a friday's terrorist attack in christ church when the stand this may cause inconvenience for some legitimate uses of these sites but these are extraordinary circumstances and they're required an extraordinary response we appreciate that it is necessary to ensure free speech is carefully balanced against protecting the
2:10 pm
community but with these sites continuing to host disturbing content we feel it is the right thing to do to block them the move comes as pressure mounts on tech companies and social media sites to explain why they allow videos of the massacre to appear on their platforms the authorities in australia are also investigating whether a number of national t.v. stations use the footage appropriately and in new zealand itself the three largest broadband providers have temporarily suspended access to site hosting images of the atrocity of facebook's perhaps borne the brunt of the criticism though for around seventeen minutes the government live streamed the massacre on the platform although it says it worked to remove the footage it could still reportedly be found with relative ease hours after the shootings previously activist and technology expert bill mears says that effectively policing content is an unwinnable battle. obviously we had to have rules in terms of taste and decency and what is or is not offensive but what some people would argue is offensive other people can argue speech and it's very difficult for regulations to define this for all circumstances
2:11 pm
and therefore very difficult for some of the hosting providers actually to moderate accurately especially given the volume of content and the difficulty of this moment in time for any form of ai to differentiate in terms of what appears in the video it's very very difficult then of course there's a lot of talk now about encryption and if more and more content especially the messaging platform starts to become encrypted you need an even game to be able to see what's there so any form of moderated imposition is going to be impossible. twenty years ago for a fantasy book to hit it big exceptional script work and a ton of marketing were perhaps only really needed but these days things are different and you are expected not only to write an enthralling story but also to address current political and social trends what you do with your old bestseller doesn't quite measure up to new standards well perhaps you could tweak your characters a little bit. why
2:12 pm
can't you can. i can suggest. their relationship was incredibly intense it was passionate and it was enough relationship i'm less interested in the sexual side though i believe there is a section to mention to this relationship. wow in the other great revelation from j.k. rowling. j.k. rowling confirm some cards in the books and movies ok everywhere except in the books of the movies there were scenes in the movie that look cut for time and had they remained it would have clearly shown temple was gay or just received an hour from here or should not be. allowed this don't tell me voldemort has retained her
2:13 pm
don't phone demote jerry mike. white skin was never specified while the knobs black mine. mine his white face be sticking out from behind a tree. you remember yeah it was a guy yeah he's a transgender. and i mean. wheelchair could have down syndrome what is this character is actually i don't know all of them. she pokes notes about gay relationships that's simply a fact but obviously what she does do is after a few years you know where the ticket sales are down and where they sells the books that are out there what she does he she just comes up with
2:14 pm
a few little things together into the media and there's a saying look good luck to her you know this is show business and she has the rights to do that but i don't think that most people look at the reports of coke and think if we were the great works of gay liberation there's every existed in the world i'm not really so because it's intended for children and i don't think that it's appropriate to explore very adult fables when you are dealing with children this is i'll tell you after the break has germany found itself culpable for the consequences of american airstrikes in yemen we'll explain all about that in a few moments. when lawmakers manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the famous

2:16 pm
them back a court has decided that the german government has legal responsibility for us drone strikes directed and controlled from a company's territory he came as a result of a case brought by families of civilian victims in yemen reporting next from berlin he has done hawkins. landmark case in germany with the court in the city of months the ruling that the german government does bear at least partial responsibility for ensuring that the use of its air base in the southern city of ramstein by the united states air force does out here strictly to international law in twenty twelve yemenis lost relatives five sell been. lost his brother in law asylum been job or who was an air mom alongside his brother will lead in a u.s. drone strike the germans through. on german soil were involved in these strikes and what had happened to my family and it is possible that my family would not have been a target of such strikes and had rented an air base not provided such information
2:17 pm
on the case was initially dismissed by a court in cologne back in twenty fifteen the court has now ruled that in fact the base did play a central role in facilitating the relaying of data for drone strikes in yemen judges ordered the government to take all appropriate measures through ensure that the u.s. force was complying with international law and to press washington if necessary to get the answers they required it also ordered the government to investigate the questions and the concerns put forward by the family surrounding the legality of that airstrike that gave the sermon he addressed the killings conduct of al qaeda and challenge them to present a religious or thirty that is willing to debate with him so he can demonstrate to the people that this behavior of al-qaeda is wrong he was taken out by the american strike unfortunately he was not killed by al qaeda he was killed by an american missile germany is a country that stopped arms shipments to saudi arabia which is
2:18 pm
a key player in the yemeni conflict described as one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of this century and also a key u.s. ally however the use of the ramstein air base for facilitating. strikes has carried on and this has come in for criticism from human rights representatives i think it is definitely a constant a contradiction that the german government is saying they are the arms sales to the society is for the word nieman have to be stopped in at the same time. do not intervene to stop the drone strikes on yemen via ramstein air base this court case hasn't played out entirely how the job of really wanted it they were hoping for a complete ban on the use of ramstein air force for anything to do with u.s. drone strikes in yemen any german government has said they will look into the ruling they will study it carefully but this can be viewed as an important first
2:19 pm

2:23 pm
people who are into were from the search site and certainly more all the political leaders were trials and convicted while the undersides were not their. president of brazil has been labeled the trump of the tropics for both the likeness of his persona and his policies so it was perhaps a little surprise that job also in all roads first official forum visit so had touched down in the united states this week and the real donald trump was keen to get their relationship off to a solid stuff i also know that we're going to have a fantastic working relationship. we have many views that are similar and we certainly feel very very true to each other on trade i think brazil's relationship with the united states because of our friendship is probably better than it's ever been by far. respect whatever the ballots tell us on twenty twenty
