3:01 pm
here in moscow right welcome to. the british government looking into the possibility that a hostile state secret memo sent back to london by the united states the embarrassing revelations exposed what he really thought about the american president and his administration and donald trump just couldn't resist hitting back . the what he ambassador that the u.k. forced it upon the united states is not someone we are thrilled with a very stupid guy he should speak to his country and prime minister may about their failed break that negotiation and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was don't trump friends speak frankly so i will these comments disrespectful and wrong to our prime minister my country you said the u.k. u.s. alliance was the greatest in history and i agree but i need to treat each other with respect and three's a maze always done with it all started on sunday when these leaked diplomatic
3:02 pm
e-mails between sikkim darrick who's the u.k. ambassador in washington and the foreign office. came to light were revealed in a sunday paper and it's pretty standard practice for ambassadors to send a very frank assessment of what's going on in the countries that. they were never meant for public consumption and yet thanks to this leak here they are. we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal less dysfunctional less predictable less faction ribbon less diplomatically clumsy. to reason may has said that she's got full confidence in her ambassador in washington and of course donald trump isn't famous for having a thick skin when it comes to things like this she's not big into forgiving and forgetting either that hence that tweet about calling him directly.
3:03 pm
and saying that he's not going to be dealing with him any more and all this leaves the foreign office in quite a pickle sikkim taric is one of the most is the diplomats he's had quite a career behind him he was due to step down from his post in washington in a few months time but if he is called back to london early. the foreign office have risk fluids that decision which they don't want to told but on the other hand they might be left with a lame duck of an ambassador one of the most important ambassadorial posts in the service a lame duck on bass death in washington. it's already been disinvited from an event at the white house that's taking place this evening say he might have to choose to resign a lot of speculation about what he does next but all because of these diplomatic leaks where really he was simply doing his job that in the mean time they can pin

it off it is in charge as leading the full inquiry into who was behind all this. music festival in the u.s. city of detroit has been forced to change its ticketing policy after a backlash over charging white people double the price organizers said quote it reflected the white communities wealth and privilege which disadvantages black people as despite the offer of future fair slogan stating equality means treating everyone the same which has become a focal point for criticism online. first of all charging different prices because don't race well done intersectional radicals you've become the very racist you claim to stand against so walk so very walk for a future 1st equality means treating everyone the same also for a future 1st we're going to charge people different prices based on their race i wonder how our future music festival will charge asians do it be $15.00 because
3:05 pm
we're non white but privileged the festival has now canceled our pricing policy following widespread complaints and even threats against the organizers and their families there's now a suggested donation option for quote non people of color it said half the proceeds will go to a program that supports young black people in detroit but the organizers continue to defend their initial ticketing terms. article structure was built to ensure that the most marginalized communities people of color are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community black detroit affording joint pleasure is unfortunately still a privilege in our society for people of color and we believe everyone should have access to receiving such i was not in conflict i was angered by all this one of the artists on the bill pulled out in protest as well i was immediately enraged just because i am bi racial i have family members that would have under those circumstances been subjected to something that i would not ever want them to
3:06 pm
be in it's non-progressive and it's not solution focused in my eyes. well we heard from attorney and author resurface and he supports the organizers while conservative social commentator anthony brian logan says by any metric it's racism well came early to what's going on here it seems like on one hand they don't want white people to come but on the other hand they want to text him they want to charge do more money they let people for disease so you don't want to be here but you want to earn money i don't really understand what you have are people who are local to the detroit community who may have been under server economic minorities and they're seeing an influx of money and wealth into their community that they're not necessarily always able to participate in and so when you have this organizer seeking to put together and a vent to benefit these under-served communities what she's saying is this is for the native people of this community what if it were and hispanic event let's say it
3:07 pm
was a display in a music festival and they say spanish you're able to pay x. amount of dollars if you are not hispanic including black folks you got to pay more so to make you use a black person pay more to go to their view with the races yes or no so if they say that you can really take over the ability to exclude people if they say it is say it is you can't come at all because you blake would be racist is that he is i mean i'm trying to figure out yes i know i would iraqis definition is so you say yes ok that would be raised. now if a black person do to a boy person how would it be would at the races well if it were white people in the shoe was on the other foot then it doesn't really make sense because we know in our a house painter and has been receiving when black people actually have that type of control again it's discriminatory it's a it's a practice where you are setting a bear a boundary a barrier but is it preventing someone from receiving an economic benefit no but if
3:08 pm
it were the other way around if you were a white only even so it was a coach music festival in a.z. anyway why you go to pay double to brace what would the reaction be your aces you neo nazi you k.k.k. are is a name what we're looking at right now is a young lady looking through the lens of history and deciding that it's important for us as a people to began to fix the issue from the lens of equity versus equality. u.s. state department has given an initial green light to a major weapons deal with taiwan but china says the potential trade agreement could undermine its sovereignty the pentagon anti-bodies officials have defended the move . this proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the us by helping to improve the security and defensive capability of the recipient an important force for political stability move to rebalance an economic progress in the region taiwan will speed up investment on defense and continued to deepen
3:09 pm
security ties with the united states and countries with similar ideas american lawmakers now have 30 days to make a final decision on the deal and if agreed on taiwan will receive over $100.00 modernised tanks and $250.00 air defense missiles that along with other weapons will take the total bill to $2200000000.00 the island of taiwan has got a complicated history it has been independently ruled since the chinese civil war ended in 149 however it's only recognized as a state by 18 countries and none of the major powers china claims sovereignty over the territory and therefore beijing sees international interference as a domestic threat. the sale of weapons by the united states to taiwan seriously violates the one china principle grossly interferes in china's internal affairs and undermines china's sovereignty and security interests china urges the u.s. to immediately canceled a planned arms seo and stop military relations with taipei to avoid damaging sino
3:10 pm
u.s. relations and harming peace and stability in the taiwan strait. we spoke to trying to expert andrew leone who says the move is part of a wider u.s. strategy to contain beijing. the whole of the all the united states one it's not just that it was all a chess board all. the security the other states in which the you know this this seeing as being. is being challenge but i was in china but as far as the laws busy. there is the relations act which are the most as legal as. the ideas that create. a kind of unsinkable area. as a kind of. a fortress. to contain china so i think that was the scene that context. leading us democratic presidential
3:11 pm
candidate joe biden has defended himself after coming under a barrage of friendly fire from his own party they claim he's been too sympathetic towards racial segregation in the past the issue was raised late last month during the 1st democratic party debate ahead of next year's presidential election biden hailed days gone by saying back then he was able to reach a compromise even with his biggest rivals like program segregation congressman during the debate party diehards criticized him for even having dialogue with such people but after apologizing for his remarks biden said the words were taken out of context. did you see the questions about your past positions from the perspective of race being as relevant as they are no no i think the role of the taking out of context and so easy to go back and go back 304050 years and take a context and take it completely out of context nonetheless throughout american history the democrats haven't always been pro integration is kind of morbid explained. joe biden the current front runner in the democratic presidential race
3:12 pm
has come forward to apologize about statements he made about working with advocates of racial segregation i regret it. i'm sorry freddy the pater misconception i may have caused him but. i don't think you have to be holding a personal relationship with people who will very brutal oh a segregationist it was hurtful. to hear you talk about the reputations of 2 united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country now joe biden is still in the lead despite the scandal however it seems to have unearthed a strange reality in american politics the democratic party the party that brought us the 1st african-american president has a rather strange record when it comes to the issue of racism when senator robert
3:13 pm
byrd of west virginia died barack obama gave him a stirring eulogy he was sent in by com he was a party leader he was an elder statesman and he was my friend. that's all remember him prior to becoming a u.s. senator robert byrd had been a high ranking member of the ku klux klan afterwards he reputed the views of the hate group but prior to that he had some strong views when it came to the issue of race or should never fight in the armed forces with a negro bomb i saw i'd rather i should die a 1000 times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than to see this beloved london vase become degraded by race mongrels through parts of the blocky specimen from the wilds bill clinton who was wildly popular among african-americans gave a eulogy when he was president for j. william fulbright another democrat we come to celebrated. for the remarkable life of j.
3:14 pm
william fulbright. a life that changed our country. and our world for ever and for the better well the glowing words left out the fact that fulbright was a big advocate. keeping black and white children in separate schools back in the 1960 s. when john f. kennedy and the northern democratic party organizations located in urban areas were pushing for racial integration the biggest pushback didn't come from republicans it came from the dixiecrats a splinter group within their own party in 1968 george wallace the democratic governor of alabama was so outraged to see anti racism become the dominant view within his own party that he ran as a 3rd party candidate then you oughta come on down to alabama we did you some low down there. right now it would seem that a democrat having such an agenda would be almost unbelievable in fact m s n b c mislabeled george wallace as
3:15 pm
a republican check it out. governor george wallace stood outside the university of alabama personally blocking 2 black students from unrolling their. sure joe biden has come forward and apologized for his statements on racial matters but it seems like the country has forgotten that not so long ago his entire party had the same issue after the civil war as the democratic party that was the races. it was the republican party that was different then republicans were at the slavery lincoln was republican had the slavery it shane's the dixiecrats after segregation after the civil war they were the racist everything was a mess we've had presidents supreme court justices who were members of that class and some of them had to do that to join the ku klux klan for political reasons i
3:16 pm
don't understand why this now with biden this is an inside baseball inside the bubble issue. the british government's challenging a landmark legal ruling suspending new arms sales to saudi arabia a court found last month ministers had failed to assess whether the weapons might be used to commit war crimes in yemen despite having promised to review the licensing process following the judgment london now seems eager to get the exports flowing again the u.k. is licensed almost 5000000000 pounds worth of arms sales to the saudis since they launched the devastating intervention in yemen civil war in 2015 that figure makes britain the 2nd largest weapons exporter to the gulf monarchy after the united states with more on the story has a partridge. the u.k.'s government is fighting the court of appeal ruling that arms sales to saudi arabia are norful in the latest challenge in the long running legal battle over weapons used in the yemen war ministers are trying to stay the judgment
3:17 pm
which means they could carry on licensing arms sales to the saudis until the outcome of its appeal last month the court said the u.k. export licensing process was wrong in law in one significant respect the government made no concluded assessments of whether the saudi led coalition had committed violations of international community area law in the past during the yemen conflict and may not to do so trade secretary liam fox was forced to hold an immediate review of almost $5000000000.00 pounds worth of weapons deals while this latest appeal seems to contradict fox's assurances to m.p.'s that saudi arms sales would be halted pending a review as i said earlier we disagree with the judgment and the secret mission to appeal alongside this we are carefully considering the implications of the judgment for decision making while we do this we will not grant any new licenses for export to saudi arabia and it's called partners which might be used in the conflict in yemen opposition leader jeremy corbyn says the latest efforts to halt the ruling
3:18 pm
ridicule the government's position that human rights take priority over profit despite clear legal warnings that the sale of arms to saudi arabia has contributed to the worst humanitarian catastrophe in the world the conservatives are determined to allow sales to carry on regardless this makes a mockery of their own commitment to hold all new sales while a review takes place into civilian casualties human rights watch has documented the use of u.k. made weapons in apparently are lawful airstrikes foreign secretary jeremy hunt says suspending british exports would diminish the u.k.'s influence over the course of the conflict but the campaign against arms trade argues the sales have meant british bombs have been used to kill civilians. what the government has applied for is a city which would mean that if it is granted that the arms exports can continue under the present under the present process and this is the same process which the court
3:19 pm
of appeal has phoned was illegal and if that happens then that means that there will be more arms sales and that means filled with what atrocities committed because for 4 years no you can read fatal jets bombs and you came with missiles of pleated devastating role in creating the worst humanitarian crisis in the world and yemen is no surprise the government is appealing this verdict because it will do everything it can to maximize arm sales. because for decades and decades to stage a dictatorship has been the largest buyer in the wilds of u.k. weapons the saudi led coalition says it wasn't deliberately targeting civilians but thousands have been killed the united nations says 3300000 yemenis are displaced and at least 2 thirds of the population need help in the long running lethal battle is no end in sight kate partridge r.t. london. with relations between kiev and moscow under enormous strain and ukraine's
3:20 pm
new president a lot of years olinsky has said he wants to hold a face to face meeting with putin but in an indication of just how fraught the situation is ukrainian authorities are accusing the country's news one channel of treason over a proposed link up show with a russian state broadcaster which is banned in ukraine the program which news one dropped after saying its journalists have received the barest of threats was called we need to talk to channel says the intention was to provide a platform for ordinary people from ukraine and russia to discuss the challenges facing their countries and the war in eastern ukraine it also pointed to a recent survey indicating that 75 percent of ukrainians would support such talks but for the show still outraged many including the president. unsoftened me really missed the teleconference is just a cheap but dangerous p.r. move before the elections the goal of which is to divide us again into 2 camps the show's announcement also triggered protests outside news ones h.q. with demonstrators setting off flares and chanting anti russian slogans
3:21 pm
a russian t.v. presenter who was supposed to be helping host the link up says the aim was to improve bilateral relations. get back to the all that was say when i agreed to work on this teleconference i wanted to show what we had been reading listening watching wearing on this ng during the 5 years when we didn't communicate with each other in mata mccauley who is an historian in russia expert suspects the authorities in kiev are anxious about ukraine's upcoming parliamentary elections. it sounds very strange because treason is betraying your country and giving away secrets. from involving your country to another country which your country feels is to his disadvantage very difficult understand the word extreme word to use because this journalist was in fact trying to put forward try to work on an exchange between moscow and here i think it has to do with the upcoming elections. zelinsky the
3:22 pm
president is very nervous because he wants a majority in parliament and he may not get it therefore he wants to get as many votes as possible and it doesn't want an exchange if you have an exchange between moscow and kiev. in russian they may in fact influence the election because various questions will come up how do you see the situation. how do you see the situation. on the privacy war powerful austrian activist is taking on face book island in europe's top justice call this tuesday it's a case that could have huge implications for global business max friends argues the social media giant is insufficiently protecting the data you citizens when it's transferred to the united states the landmark case puts at stake the legality of so-called standard the contractual clauses there are complex legal mechanisms that allow companies to move data freely from europe all over the world firms use them to transfer digital information between their various hubs worldwide but trends
3:23 pm

3:24 pm
government surveillance the case was initially rejected in ireland back in 2013 then it was passed over to the e.u. court of justice and now the data agreement known as safe harbor has been ruled invalid. data could no longer lawfully be transferred from the e.u. to the u.s. pursuant to the safe harbor decision but other elements are complicating the matter turns out facebook never even relied on the agreement instead using so-called standard contractual clauses. didn't have follow its logical duty of exchanging the documents in the 2 party for seizure and told us that we were not allowed to know anything about it i was in the in the situation of suing the irish d.p.c. for a couple 100000 euros at the high court and trying some kind of you know lawyer to do all that just to get the files in my yahoo case now it's up to the courts to decide if these data transfers are still legal one case that reportedly showed the scope of the n.s.a.'s abilities was the german chancellor when alongside german
3:25 pm
intelligence angle of merkel's phone was monitored the fog of the i think the question as to whether france should or should inspire each other is still important one and a guest of the answer should be that this shouldn't happen 2nd i want to say that we the office of the federal chancellor will justify ourselves to the responsible parliamentary committees. we asked europeans what they thought about u.s. surveillance into their private lives letting my son and the most people just tap tap tap and don't care what the apps will do with their data later and for those who use facebook it's too late to worry about privacy i think security. more important because. you know you can control your privacy without social media if it's going to extreme that. minus our i believe those laws of the wrong way uses themselves to develop awareness however

people post anything on facebook instagram and twitter not knowing what will happen to their personal data afterwards any american company wants to date our date belongs to e.u. citizens such as facebook or google or amazon they have to comply with certain requirements and the condition is that the way they will handle the data will be similar to the way the data would be handled in the u. the difference is that in the us there are different laws that allow the us government to actually look into the data and process that data in a way that will not be allowed to be done in the e.u. so even those contracts are found to be. unlawful it would mean they companies such as facebook and google and amazon that regularly process date that it belongs to either citizens will find themselves breaching e.u.
