12:37 am
statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. it's in the early days christian people don't get i was right you were lower. i mean when we found out that he was positive felt such fear never felt little it's not the fear of what he might suffer it's it's social it's everything it's children it's housing it's your career is everything is gone it was something to be ashamed of even though we did nothing wrong he did nothing wrong i bring a prominent locally and then one night i walked into a pole to play mama and the landlord just pointed out me and said you get out

12:39 am
by 9190 nights a he'd become wario. he had progressed to a it's only opportunistic infections using off way slowly going through a horrible death. and. by the end of night 3. news news that. jason evans founded the independent campaign group factor 8 its members of the immediate relatives of him affiliates who died because of contaminated blood products his organization provides them with legal help. i really i mean i had one goal when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it tell on the official record that what happened could and should have been avoided i think after
12:40 am
that point maybe there's room for that as support for people counseling and compensation and all these other things but i think for me. something once it's on the record that there is life and that. interest rates are gapping and the spread is widening into what i call the interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the trends of geoffrey epstein you bantustan of extortion ery credit card rates if you're a friend of jeffrey epstein then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money excuse me from the bank. to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected.
12:41 am
so when you want to be president and you. want to be. actually going to be approached this is what before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested in the waters and. we can see which it's perhaps most people to commit to take stem 10th of september 1976 so very soon up to you would be still saying it should. and we can see the words have to spring. the existence of a risk of habits like to something you or your parents were aware of. mosul.
12:42 am
cash cow and that is dari alfonzo mongery has died. he's died and. he's died on mars one of the page service chosen paid changed or. at 11 years of age richard went to true laws college a special boarding school for children with disabilities. as an n.h.s. health center on the campus students could receive the medical care they needed and attend classes all in the same place. it's also the site of the greatest concentration of contaminated blood cases that the u.k. has ever seen. ready busy what it. is that you receive significant quantities of fatty rates of prophylactic base. there are crazy about. aren't too real target joints nose mild left me in the right. for our current system why that
12:43 am
would give me consecutive doses day after day. great britain will be self-sufficient in blood products and will guarantee their purity. it was the government's promise in the 1970s. when she came in that pledge in the name went away and they found a way around. importing this particular product. all these issues were very often in meetings of 1015 people but they were all held in secret no one was allowed to publish the the minutes of the meetings. the main beneficiaries of that secrecy were pharmaceutical companies. these companies had a huge financial motivation to sow these problems today. the fact concentrate
12:44 am
market is a 1000000000 dollar industry in order for me to say our product is safe for the next companies they needed a trial date that showed we've used this product and it's not infectious and in this country at least the dot is. often as consultants to the pharmaceutical home as there are numerous documents showing that doctors in oxford doctors in cardiff work keen to test facts or a concentrates infectivity on their patients to all hemophilia since directors. initial production bunches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them into chimpanzees it is unlikely that the manufacturers will be able to guarantee this form of quality control for all future batches it is therefore very important to find out by studies in human beings to what extent the infectivity of the various concentrates has been reduced. the reason they used humans instead of
12:45 am
chimpanzees was one because chimpanzees were expensive and essentially patients were free when they don't know their partner experiment we tried to speak to the pharmaceutical companies that produced factor 8 at the time over the last 50 years they have changed names and ownership several times and none wanted to talk about the contaminated blood issue now. what we know now is that the trolls are also conducting tests regularly and keeping records of liver function tests which made you think ok so what are we actually looking for figuring in a safe product or if you want to monitoring how you live. or if you trace there was are you c.t. for kanwar with looking at racing. out of the 80.
12:46 am
90 of affiliates who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. or from liver related problems to have a charge say. i actually feel guilty i'm still paying i asked myself the question why am i still alive. you know 70 percent of a hang for that boy use. college. i've had and i don't care and i'm always question yourself why me i why am i seen i live by being allowed to live when so many have and. the official claim was that the new medicines were safe the most emphatic statement
12:47 am
to that effect was from kenneth clark health secretary under margaret thatcher's government. i think someone that really has a lot to answer for as a minister is. the well known kenneth clarke actually stood up for an argument and said there is no conclusive proof. is transmitted through blood products he really needs to answer for putting out that type of misinformation and this was the reply we received from kenneth clocks office mr clark has chosen to decline this request and from the u.k. department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leader and therefore they will be the ones best placed to answer your questions beyond that initial acknowledgement the cabinet office has not responded to our request. and all we could find on the official u.k. national health service website was a report mentioning that victims are entitled to apply for compensation.
12:48 am
2019 and for the 1st time the u.k. government agreed to hear what the victims had to say a public inquiry was opened in london and jason evans group factory's is taking part in it is finally happening it's been a long road and this is a this train journey is one that i say him countless times over the last 34 years. even before jason was born his father was aware of the deadly disease. in spite of the risk of passing on the contamination his baby was born in. and think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went. next year i'll be the same age my dad was when he died. i think about if i used. it next year at that age that would have been really
12:49 am
a very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. oh in 1918 only tina and. yes. shall we say. a word i knew pretty soon after and she went to see her doctor. where we were advised really in no uncertain terms not care to look at. it was all in those few months so mixed it together and at the time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the time of no sister i could have been positive in which case what we you know. being an approach child at
12:50 am
that time to be in often if you come into the world we didn't know how long we have all the child could have been positive as well this me in which case was it morally right to give birth to a child that i suffered terribly i couldn't walk away from a man who i spose to love just when he needed me most and once we found out that i was ok afterwards. he. realized that if i was going to be a mother it wouldn't be with richard and i just say with richard he said you're a perfect stream really loving and supportive wife yes sorry she's ship is in chile . as it. assists a great sadness to you base this theory that you have to have children.
12:51 am
a problem if it. really. mean anything to you and when. you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice. only lazy thing. but hey. martin bed was also thinking of starting a family his girlfriend was a nurse at the hospital where he received his treatment. i've got the dial m. earth hemophilia awesome not all of the don lemon or of a child of a not just infecting her but possibly possibly on to children as well so took
12:52 am
the decision after about a year to split tilt so that hopefully she could go off and have a family of our own and thankfully she did and we're still friends on facebook so you know and she seems happy which is good. this is a very very apt rebate and that such a. very loyal dogs rottweilers are very protective as wild. animals are one of the greatest comfort she can ever offer. because she can have the lousiest day in the world when you walk in that house and the dog's place to see your. dogs know when you're in i mean i know when you're in trouble and.
12:53 am
it's soothing. the. 2 attempts were made over 40 years to investigate the causes of this medical disaster in the u.k. but so far no one has been held accountable. the current inquiry is goal is to gather evidence the final decision about how to proceed after that will wrist with the government. i have very doubt that what happened was criminal i think the real question is to what degree was it credible i mean nothing a bad we're talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter perhaps. and i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where where those lines made. their criminal prosecutions have been brought in other
12:54 am
countries and they have been successful particularly in france whether they will be brought in this country i suspect not the reason they won't bring them though the crown prosecution service won't be directed to bring those prosecutions is because it's widely accepted that they would be successful and the only way they can avoid a successful prosecution is to avoid bringing it up. the public inquiry is expected to continue for at least 2 to 3 years too late for the victims who have already died and to long for those still fighting for their lives every day morning our 1st witnesses. it was so frightening. i was told about a year to live it was a hard time is so frightfully experience it wasn't
12:55 am
a life. really treasure exams anymore because we did a few years. i don't think i would. come out. came out. don't just want to sit down the house hard enough is no way should have to do that we just wanted to be with them. and i believe now is the time to justice. and all we ask for is recognition of our rights a meaningful recompense for the largest we've had some truly stolen from us. you
12:56 am
know world a big part of the law 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. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
12:57 am
what politicians do something. to put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to. have to go right to the press this is what the 43 in the morning can't be good that . i'm interested always in the waters of the house. i sit. in this community there are people who believe that it's ok to substract food on my table it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that ask and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments and there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the teams most of the conflict i would say overall is around money and most of them money is made. close one on each
12:58 am
other does he know each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of the prison complexes you get some 20 a life where. you don't care and one of my hair is a monster so your hair might anything. lead.
12:59 am
wrong. just don't call. to shape our. engagement because the trail. is worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
