thanks for joining us this hour. crisis stricken starving. rules venezuela's been described many ways in the western media recently but explains there's a new label being pinned on the south american country to president. you can take a man out of business but you can't take business out of the man apparently u.s. president donald trump is living proof of that he's been tailoring this image of corporate shark for decades and is now taking the approach to politics the potential of venezuela. don't properly and with with democracy it would be incredible it was one of the richest companies certainly and now it's one of the poorest gulf countries of the world a slip of the tongue for sure but could it be a fraud and one well he seems to have appointed venezuela's new c.e.o.

different you can bankrupt it and its workers can at least hope to get paid leave and find employment elsewhere a country that's a slightly different scale. trump is a business representing the capitalist class in the us and what they want to lay hold in see an enormous resource. trump has absolutely no interest in the lives of the average person as well or interested in business money maximizing profit a course trant or pence or any group of nato generals has absolutely no right to speak on any matter where guarding our sovereignty. and every one of the actions they have taken are complete violation of international law and of the un charter.

a goal of curbing migration into the country while the european union has announced that will suspend the maritime patrols that have rescued thousands of refugees and asylum seekers instead it plans air patrols and close coordination with libya which is the main starting point for a few g.'s and migrants trying to cross the sea from north africa to europe we spoke to london metropolitan university senior research fellow george somewhere who thinks that the migration crisis is nato's responsibility. well i think it's the real problem the europeans are going to have is that you have this very powerful forces. within europe that are welcoming the migrants i'm sure that the initial response of the maltese all storage is will be we are not letting anybody in. but now we're. the human rights the amnesty international the george soros crowd will say my god this is inhumane european civilization is coming to an end these are people fleeing from most
8:07 am
horrific tortures and murder and rape you have to let them in and i think in those circumstances it's going to be very hard for the maltese and the talons to say no. an online campaign has been launched against the u.s. drug maker accused of inflating prices of an hiv drug by thousands of dollars it turns out the company doesn't even own the patent for the treatment of warplanes quote the details. all across the american political spectrum almost everyone seems to agree that prescription drug costs are too high we will never stop fighting for our children our seniors and those in need of prescription drugs and working families who cannot afford the escalation of cost the drug. is making an absolute fortune at the expense of american consumers but the big companies couldn't care less about the government's opinion gilead sciences takes the prize
8:08 am
among hated pharma giants its new medication for people who've been infected with hiv is selling for roughly sixteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month needless to say there has been outrage we're here today us to protest the buli ads pricing their new combination therapies strike there's no valid reason for it to be price it's purely greed and profit driven by their new h.i.v. drug provide abroad in a whopping three billion dollars last year but they deserve to be compensated for their creativity and innovation making a new product right well here's the thing it turns out that it was actually us taxpayer money that paid for developing the new drug the scientific research and the testing necessary it was all paid for by the us government however it's gilliard stockholders that get the profits no royalties of any kind are being paid into the u.s. treasury essentially right and i bet is a huge problem with access to expose your profile access in the united states to
8:09 am
prevent a champion action basically there's a lot of low income communities people of color trans women who are not being able to access this drug and a huge part of that is because the company that makes it science is charge is sixteen hundred dollars for a drug that only costs six dollars now there is similar outrage when gilead started charging over one thousand dollars a pill for its hepatitis c. drug cartel for her. now there's another famous case of the chief executive of turning pharmaceuticals martin squarely jacking up the price of a jar of pram an anti parasite medication five thousand percent from its initial cost of thirteen fifteen and when pressed in congress to justify his reasoning mr squarely seemed to laugh in their faces i want to plead with you to use any remaining influence you have over your former company to press them to lower the
8:10 am
price of these drugs you can look away if you like but i wish you could see the faces of people no matter what misreads left. who can get the drugs now justice was served but in another fashion the c.e.o. mr scrawly was convicted on two counts of securities fraud and sent to seven years in prison the price of daraa primero ever has never lowered all of this seems to point to the fact that big pharma has got the u.s. public in a position of weakness for someone infected with hiv trivago it could be life or death needless to say people in such circumstances are pretty ripe for being get out but this raises a bigger question how much freedom should influential corporations have especially when they are receiving so much government assistance in order to do their work caleb oppen r.t. new york. reasons brix a conundrum the u.k. parliament is still fighting to find a clear path to leave the e.u.

and peace talks to choose from in a vote on wednesday but none of the idea is going to clear majority include holding a second referendum revoking article fifty and even staying in the you for a further two years. as try to remind ourselves what we've decided to do but. i think the public will look at on these proceedings in. amazement this. guy will be completely bemused by what has gone on this is a very serious moment for all of us and we have to reflect the first house of commons has tried to find a way through the cracks that crisis over the last few months and we have failed. the test of course a very great disappointment that the house is not chosen to find a majority for any proposition it does simplify what's now on offer which really is exit in the european union as we've just heard with
8:12 am
a deal all we've no deal at all that is now what's on offer and if we need to pressurize a lot of the m.p.'s if theresa may can bring her deal back to the house which will be seen now as hugely important to do because actually that's going to be the only option other than leaving the european union with a hopper. i mean while to reason may says she's prepared to resign if that means her bricks that deal gets through parliament according to downing street the concession came in a closed doors meeting with conservative m.p.'s. i'm prepared to leave this job earlier than i intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party i ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty to deliver on the decision of the british people and leave the european union with a smooth and orderly breck's it the u.k.'s opposition leader jeremy corbyn reacted

to that saying may's proposal was party management not in the interests of british citizens adding that a switch of government should be the people's decision. economists guarantee johns nelson mccausland a former social development minister in northern ireland think that the reason major proposal will not solve the problems with bricks that. many bricks or tears will be encouraged by her in the interim she is going but the position i think for the day you pay and for the vast majority of unionists northern is simply this the deal she house currently on the table. with you is only acceptable whether she stays or whether she goes the problem for them remains that the backstop is deeply deeply problematic the british approach to british it has been entirely governed by party politics this isn't a has to keep the conservative party together by proposing
