6:05 am
vote at more than ten thousand polling stations across the country and abroad these paullus leah takes a look at the front runner. there is something for everyone in the israeli elections there are more than fifty parties competing although only to have a real chance of forming the next government but these daily could party headed by prime minister benjamin netanyahu who fancies himself as a strongman among the successes he's talked at which is getting his ally american president donald trump to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital to recognize israeli sovereignty over the golan heights and also to label iran's revolutionary guard as a terrorist organization but that's not enough for the prime minister just before the elections he was asked if he would consider and mixing territory in the west. yes we will go to the next stage in imposing israeli sovereignty in the west bank has made opponent is the same tryst with a distinguished military background for me israeli army chief b.b. guns he appeals to voters who feel that netanyahu has been in power for too long i
6:06 am
think benjamin netanyahu has done a lot for the country he served in public life for more than two decades and thirteen years as a prime minister but is receiving enough is enough whoever wins will bring little joy for palace. unions it's rabies in general are less inclined to compromise on the issue particularly interesting enough when it comes to young people according to a poll by the. institute we asked israelis on the streets of tel aviv what's his appeal to young people. generation is much more violent. in the relieve like in the extreme everything is extreme litany own that fear creates a lot of unity unity a. kind of a feeling of togetherness it's not so surprising that. younger populations levels of support. for him going to many guns. always
6:07 am
way too much in control. and got too much power and a lot of israeli don't trust them and relieve our i for one thing your own eyes i think and she's a successful now as it is and i'm afraid of changes i don't know if i one day someone has to be those been several a geisha against in the last several years and there's very good chance this is going to end in prison in the next year or so except the faith in his own presidency has an achievement any significant achievements gideon levy is a columnist at the israeli newspaper ha'aretz he breaks down for us. those elections sigh about an attorney oh yes or no it's almost the only issue at stake almost the only issue on the table and they're almost the only sure which is discussed and you know here emotions are very high balls their reactions go for
6:08 am
believing him go for believe he's a victim of the system go for believe that only him can secure the future of israel only him can stand visit the rabid new poutine and donald trump and other leaders of the world and look at them as an equal partner and those who believe that these men have created enough damage and should go home the way the and yoel is going either way that brings israelis support from the united states this is something the voters might have in their mind but it will not be in their first priority so then ask about some pictures just coming in late stay in from tel aviv the polling station in iran opened at seven o'clock local time there it's now just after one o'clock in the afternoon this one of the tightest races for years will be cross those exit polls when they occur after the polls close we think about a post telling us about coming in incumbent benjamin netanyahu is believed to be said to be on track to become the longest serving leader lawyer state for him as
6:09 am
a country want changes that want to keep the status quo will keep you posted. other stories to bear in mind today the u.k. government claims it's going to have the toughest internet laws in the world when a plan outlined in the online harms white paper it suggest penalising or even blocking websites that fail to take down potentially harmful content covering everything from child abuse to this information but as polly poitier explains next the roof is that when there's regulation there's also censorship. too much freedom can be dangerous that's the message from the u.k. government which has unveiled ambitious new plans to oversee the safest corner of the internet the country that's famous for bringing you mary poppins is aiming to be the world's best online nanny we're putting a legal duty of care on these companies to keep users safe and if they fail to do so toss punishments will be imposed. the era of social media firms regulating
6:10 am
themselves is over it's time to do things differently it's time to keep our children safe so how is the british government going to make the u.k. the safest place to enjoy the net well for starters there are going to be some strict new rules any company that allows online interaction will be responsible for their users safety as well as the content that appears on their services in the most obvious examples that will mean purging illegal material related to terrorist and child sexual exploitation and abuse and if companies fail to clean up their act the likes of facebook and twitter will be put on the naughty step by a new independent regulator for the internet companies will face substantial fines for failing to pull down dangerous or extremist materials if the fines don't work bosses of the offending firms could be liable to criminal prosecution and if that
6:11 am
fails to websites could be blocked entirely for u.k. internet users and that regulator should have teeth so we're going to consult not just on remedial notices on fines and that can be up to four percent of global turnover at the moment none of this is law yet they'll be twelve weeks of public consultation only after that draft legislation will be drawn op but there are already concerns over the prospect of tough new regulations there's so much come to know that you can just influence. well really anybody but especially the younger generation kids i would disagree i think the internet is something which is open and it was a good thing that it was always open and not regulus but in any form of government or whatever i think it's probably a good idea i think this is enough regulate that i think it's. pretty. there i
6:12 am
think it's a good idea to have some protection in there but it's a pens how stringent how close they are to every day stuff internet needs better regulation most definitely why. two three four one and then the government says it wants to remove what it calls harmful content but who will be the arbiter of what stays out up and what goes down so those social media companies will have to do two things first is to set out filters process to see just to show that they are doing whatever they can and you know to to prevent material that could potentially cause serious harm to young children in a lot of people in a second they will have to act in a speedy manner to any request to remove such material at the moment the government is still deciding whether the job of regulating should fall on the
6:13 am
shoulders of a new independent body or an existing one like broadcast regulator off kong and when it comes to the big social media fams well like students craving more stringent discipline facebook has tentatively welcomed the plan for greater and government oversight with a caveat or to. these a complex issues to get right and we'll look forward to working with the government and parliament to ensure new regulations are effective. the u.k. government says it wants to be a trailblazer but the question is how to implement stricter safety measures without restricting freedom of the internet. tricky one quick break coming up but much more when we come back here at international including romania wanting to help stem the brain drain it's suffering it's time to skill workforce to up sticks to go to better pay elsewhere in the e.u. and how they try and solve just one of the stories that we appreciate you watching
6:14 am
i'll teach him. you know world big part of. lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race is spearing dramatic
6:15 am
development the only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. again as one of the afternoon moscow time next a crippling shortage of skilled workers in romania has prompted to join other small nations to condemn the blocks freedom of movement policy as professionals leave their nations for better pay checks within the e.u. they're hitting the growth of their home countries reports. fear aspiring members the idea of joining for. the need european union membership what they have
6:16 am
in european states will also be present in macedonia who can embrace a completely new agenda today in order to deadlines with their neighbors and join the group of countries still be the first not less. last in line to join the e.u. states on this new e.u. vision because we are the most europe music nation in europe but first some of the union's new comers the dream didn't quite materialize. and adding to their wu's there is the crippling brain drain part of the so-called prize of being a member state is freedom of movement you can move and. you won't
6:17 am
see but according to remain here that comes at a price you know when you know we come here with the least one media the stuff we see keeping only one book with devoted to this the euro is not the same we keep talking see these the procedure. of higher paid work is just too much it's not just romania that's suffering either hungry has also warned it's facing an exodus of well educated people have taken the higher paying jobs elsewhere in the e.u. it seems the brain drain is actually one of the biggest worries that some countries have it's a problem that needs solutions according to hungary's second largest parliamentary party he'll pick our talented young people who are skilled who are educated in our country believe after their recent receive their university degrees and go to
6:18 am
western europe to just search for better jobs and i did i think it is unacceptable that a doctor in hungary receives the ten times less than a doctor in the in the u.k. if what you want to have a future and if it wants. to be a stable economy and competitive on the global stage it has to eliminate those structural differences but as the e.u. expands further some countries might be asking whether they can really hear for what to be hot off the club so it's even ski r.t. paris. will talk in a way to another crunch day on the brakes it calland britain's parliament has passed a bill requiring a prime minister to see get another extension to exit the european union the move was aimed at preventing the u.k. from crashing out of the bloc maybe without a deal maybe as soon as this friday mrs may is to meet german chancellor the delayed till friday to do she send you to go to brussels for emergency summit on wednesday where will be voted on jurors almost three years since the bricks
6:19 am
referendum and many in the u.k. have changed their mind on whether or not they should leave the union after all no after all this the turn of boston's just a hundred kilometers north of london it's home to thousands of migrants from eastern european countries but then that voted overwhelmingly to leave the e.u. so we went to see where the pendulum swinging these days. the pig have already voted. so they should lay we had a vote we do so much really stick to it. and let's get out now it's price they thought they'd jump on the land menu today the wife has these make it the job is now we have no tradition that we're not even set up right still for case to pay paul. respect this. you know to drink in the story. time if you integrate in a community. where you pay your taxes so you try to you know get along with the
6:20 am
others i think there shouldn't be any problems because we have people of the world we all put on we belong to each other we should help each other instead of like but there's that. research fellow at the university of edinburgh. explains what's next them for breaks it now the premise is heading once again to brussels it's much more likely that. the rest of the year you want to keep the pressure on the u.k. government to make sure that if they are to be requesting an extension that there is some kind of purpose for it but there's a plan for why either extending it to trey's amaze always try to emphasize that these extensions are technical extensions are there to sort of the process in the commons and in the lords can go through the planning of these negotiations with the labor party go. to the end of the thirtieth of june as already been put out there so that's probably if the talks are going well that will probably be the case if there's nothing forthcoming from out there it wouldn't surprise me if there was a long extension was at least threatened to the rest of the conservative party to.
6:21 am
vote for this rather than to possibly have no. problem as to the break we'll consider kosovo similarly pledge total loyalty to the us during an official visit to detroit. oppositions a similar to what the us stands for and those on the ground know it i am an american soldier on the ground he also told the media that washington must support kosovo in order to push back against what was called russian influence in the balkans or the cost when prime minister is a staunch supporter of the us and nato in march even sacked a minister who was critical of the military alliance his actions in the former yugoslavia but despite his allegiance to the us see none the less to this day maintains that kosovo is fully sovereign and pursues its own policies some background today kosovo is a partially recognized partially disputed state it's unilaterally declared its independence from serbia back in two thousand and eight after decades of bitter
6:22 am
bitter tensions between albanian and serb communities in the region one political analyst we spoke to told us america is clearly though pulling the strings in kosovo to this day you want to give the image of being an independent country don't forget that today kosovo is not recognized by seven of humanity china doesn't recognize kosovo or india russia. spain the vatican doesn't have been recognized also works in and own country so you try to fight for that but. you still remain in the cockpit of the americans and he says it himself heritage just coming to washington to suck up to washington and say we're still here we'll do whatever you want we want leader we want the european union we want to know you know where you are. what is important is that whatever it is you're going to be doing over there we are at that point for here is to show that they will always be the servants of the americans in developments this is the most important point. government in libya has condemned monday's airstrike on an airport in tripoli as
