9:06 pm
individuals in sweden that were being pursued by the authorities now julian assange has always denied those allegations of sexual assault and said that they were a pretext for moving him to sweden and then to be able to be extradited directly to the usa from there now this all spans form a massive dump of classified military documents that this was provided to the wiki leaks co-founder to the website by a former u.s. private chelsea manning since then the u.s. government has a searing julian a source for the fact that the wiki leaks co-founder on the website published those classified documents which showed alleged war crimes being committed by u.s. soldiers in iraq. the u.k. parliament has rejected a motion aimed at preventing the country from leaving the e.u. with no deal in place kate partridge reports from london. basically these are labor
9:07 pm
and tory rebels getting together for a motion to say we want the option the house of commons wants the option to rule out a no do we want the say on legislation to stop that so a vote was put forward and it came out with 309229811 votes in favor of the government what does all of this mean effectively it's about who controls brecht's it i've been the deal option the opposition was saying effectively the new leader that came in the new leader of the tory party de facto the new prime minister because that effectively say you know we're not going to go through parliaments i'm going to take the u.k. absolutely as we were not have the power to do that so great for whomever the new leader is coming in and at the moment the current favorite is boris johnson he's always said that he wanted to keep a no deal option on the table as it was a vital renegotiating tool he felt that he had to go back and renegotiate another withdrawal deal with the new he wanted to be able to say to them we can say that we're going to drop out if we don't have a deal but in the meantime the you have said well we don't have an appetite to
9:08 pm
renegotiate anyway but this on the day before has been approved by has been negotiated successfully by the commission and has been approved by all member states and the election of a new prime minister will of course not change the parameters of what is on the table that there is no reason why didn't go shater deal 3 times it went through parliament it was rejected and the prime minister resigned and that's where we end up in the situation that we are now in that we're looking for a new tory leader and therefore a new prime minister and the problem was originally we're meant to go out on march the 20 not to mention leave the e.u. the e.u. looks to us that you can't come up with a deal you haven't agreed to anything will extend it for 7 months there's also elite cabinet memo that that's come out in the press. saying no deal would be an option the country isn't actually ready for it so it's quite an intriguing point it might be a win for the government in the meantime but we still have that tory leadership race and there's also the ramifications of is the country actually prepared for
9:09 pm
a no deal in the 1st place a professor of european law told us the labor party that helped to seize control of the break that process seems to have failed is the wrong moment to do it what you don't do if you're the opposition this is a failure of labor strategy or opposition strategy what you don't do is try and intrude into a leadership contest by daring those in the conservative party to vote against their own. possible leaders so this was not a good mechanism if you like if you want to stop or exit i think there will be more opportunities down the road i don't think the majorities of shifted i just think that context is slightly different and i think things will move on as we're clear about who is going to win the contest over the next 2 or 3 weeks and the 250

9:16 pm
personally assisted in the rescue of more than 1000 migrants they were at risk of drowning and unsafe thing is they attempted to cross the mediterranean to reach europe maria for national. this is the case of peer clem a german boat captain and hero to some criminal to others she was at the helm of the event of boat in august 2017 when it entered the port of lump it was a located on an island between malta and the coast of tunisia the rescue vessel was detained and appears a lawyer now says she may face up to 20 years in prison and horrendous fines but no matter what appears stance is unwavering get out food have witness to what women and children have to face if they are denied safe travel ignore you submarine boats of european warships and expel in libyan militias from people who shelter refugees from unsuitable overcrowded scraps and pick them up sometimes too late italian
9:17 pm
investigators have accused her crew of colluding with smugglers with photos leaked to the media alleged in the bodes returning to libya's coast on purpose to be used again by smugglers a date hasn't been set yet for with klemp has dubbed her show trial and many agree tens of thousands of people are back in her in a petition calling for italy to drop the charges this however falls under matteo salvini is cracked down they tell an interior minister and deputy prime minister is known for his open and strong until migrant views to stop rescue ships that are carrying migrants from docking on and telling shores and allowing refugees to disembark it's what he's been after since his appointment last year and he has supporters too it's not as though the italians acted without probable cause there is much truth through reporting that every year of investigation preceded the
9:18 pm
arrest including videos witness statements don't develop the picture mrs rescuing people from drowning is b.s. propaganda rescue them and take them to germany it is quite convenient to rescue people and leave them initially greece cetera we have enough migrants we do. once anymore sheen able the trafficking of people that's illegal she's responsible for the so-called refugee crisis there is a clear split within the e.u. over how to tackle the migrant crisis and while they seat undecided on whether to assist or hinder the flow of migrants into europe captain clem could be losing her battle at sea and i'm sure marie for nationality reporting from germany. although the italian authorities say that their anti migrant policy is a success rights organizations say lives are still being put at risk. but imagine now you since the start of the year there have been around 2000 rivals by sea using small boats sailing boats rowing boats whatever they have to cross the
9:19 pm
mediterranean that's compared to 14000 last year. by guns have no say in how or when to leave the traffickers make the decision for them they couldn't care less if the people arrive dead or alive if we do not intervene soon there will be a sea of blood the reason why all the said that is because there is no agreement to that european level for the resettlement of the asylum seekers and therefore easily going to become just the container of all asylum seekers waiting for maybe resettlement in other european countries the 1st thing is to return at european level and this stablish clear rules that apply to all member states so the country of 1st arrival we could say doesn't become also and only the only one to receive these people so this this food creates a flow there should be

a coordinated approach. but at the moment to europe is not capable of device in any kind of solution. yeah g.b.t. community has his out of the vatican for its latest guidance that questions the existing principles of gender identity the paper is meant to be a bid to tackle what the catholic institution calls an educational crisis subcutaneous delves into the reason for the sudden outrage of a rhetoric the vatican has been insisting on for so long. now you'd be forgiven for thinking the catholic church doesn't really know what turns the public on and you'd be right in fact it's just dealt a mosque a class and turning people off the vatican has released a paper which says there are only 2 genders male and female and it's called male and female he created them just so there was no misunderstanding if we wish to take an approach to the question of gender theory that is based on the path of dialogue
9:21 pm
is vital to bear in mind the distinction between the ideology of gender on the one hand and the whole field of research on gender that human sciences of one's taken on the other so according to the catholics men are men and women are women and anyone who sees themselves otherwise is provocative and poses a threat to the institution of marriage and seeks to overthrow nature itself unsurprisingly it's head up you know note amongst those who are outraged to find that any if you want gender theory other than that of course exists by refusing to engage in dialogue with people about their lived experiences or so from a standing in faith the vatican remains in the dark ages for most in a false teaching the law is a myth rumor unfold so the paper is not popular partly because it sounds like it's from the time before christ which it is it's filled with quotes from the bible after all because it was released during pride month the 30 days every year the world celebrates the l g b t community quit but wait no where in the paper does it
9:22 pm
say being gay is sinful and in fact it condemns any discrimination on file and against people the number of men and women who have deep seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible they must be accepted with respect compassion and sensitivity every sign off and just destroy a nation in their regard should be avoided now it's surely not news to outrage friends that the church struggles with accepting homosexuality and transgenderism and when they do throw in the 2 pennies worth met the by. as huge as one bishop in rhode island learned when he decided to share his view on pride month a reminder that catholics should not support or attend t.q. pride month of vance held in june they promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to catholic faith and morals. it seems the people who replied must of left the christian value of kindness out
9:23 pm
the door we woke up this morning and we saw the bishop tweet and we were honestly flabbergasted he is like the don't trump of the catholic church goes on twitter and spews out hate my catholic children will be attending pride events as this. always taught me what would jesus do yes those jesus would be attending that pride parade with also with pride and i also know that god is love and jesus is love and love is love the bishop apologized and decided to spread the love but the question begging to be asked is why the surprise kids the church isn't known for being big on reform is it really shocking it's not breaking it's habits pun intended. which isn't turtle security service m i 5 is under fire for illegally holding on to bulk data collected on citizens the situation came to light during a case brought by civil rights group liberty. m i 5 have been holding on to

a law that was passed in the u.k. in 2016 the investigatory powers act back then the new legislation was sold as something that would create transparency in the wake of the snowden scandal which had revealed that the u.s. and its allies including the u.k. had been collecting vast troops of public data but the investigatory powers act quickly became dubbed the snoopers charter privacy campaigners claim it simply legalized the practices that snowden had exposed and introduced intrusive new powers. there is however a government watchdog that's meant to oversee the u.k.'s sweeping surveillance laws and according to documents revealed in court that watchdog the u.k.'s investigative powers commissioner has delivered a highly critical assessment of m i 5 in particular over m i 5 storage of
9:26 pm
cracked public data in one letter presented in court m i 5 acknowledge that personal data collected by m i 5 was being stored in ungoverned spaces. there is a high likelihood of material being discovered when it should have been deleted in a disclosure exercise leading to substantial legal or oversight failure back in may britain's home secretary sajid javid revealed that compliance risks had been identified with how and why 5 handled data the report of the investigatory powers commissioner's office into these risks concluded that they were serious and required immediate mitigation the commission also expressed concern that m i 5 should have reported the compliance risks to him sooner the court case which is ongoing also revealed that the government watchdog would be subjecting m i 5 to far greater scrutiny from now on comparing it to
