your treatment might contain the donation of 4050000 people. a lot of projects in the u.k. came from america and one of the things we now know is that the people giving those donations were. people who maybe were in prison or drug users and they were encouraged to give their donation to provide the value that was needed. we're going to look at a couple of documents this is a result showing that you were 8 feet 3 positive hears and you won't. test results not where you told that you were being not. we both include can my aunt who was quite rigid. because

8:35 am
a father should do. and i was there i was. in towards the late seventy's he sees concentrates because that's where the doctors are saw him and everyone else see use. may 1983 so the 1st reported case of the british hemophiliac contracting the disease. appeared in the press claiming that factor 8 was a safe. in november of 84 he raised concerns about the products with he stopped and they told him this is just sensationalism it's fine you know don't worry they convinced him to carry on using fats concentrate and then it was only shortly after that the his 1st choice b. tests came back as positive. things just very difficult strain on their relationship with my mom you know they'd only got married and nothing
8:36 am
their life went from being one of planning for the future to planning for the end. to in your statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. her chair in the early turks who christer people don't get very sick for you or. doubts 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 careers everything is gone it was something to be ashamed of even though we did nothing wrong he did nothing wrong i bring a prominent lawyer locally and then one night i walked into
8:37 am
a pole to play mama and the landlord just pointed out me and said you get out the pool team i've been playing with they all still there not one of them tried to defend me ourselves sick. and i thought dead. this was a classic case of. infomed it. doesn't take away the fact that it made me feel a lot rubbish. my dad lost his job among got sidetracked her job they received hate mail phone calls making fun of. the stigma is incredible it's this whole thing though if you had
8:38 am
a zoom you a gay or you druggies are all some kind of what they sold to be and desirable person. by 9199 to he become verio. he had progressed to a it's only opportunistic infections using off way slowly going through a horrible death. and. by the end of my 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 only had one goal
8:39 am
when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it on the official record that what happened could and should have been avoided i think after 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. once it's on the record that there is liability and then i'll be satisfied. with this manufactured consent instinctive public will. when the ruling close is protect them so. when the final merry go round lifts only the one percent.
8:40 am
we can all middle of the room signals. really. mean real news. interest rates spike and gapping in the spread is widening and what i call interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the friends of jeffrey epstein you end up in any bantustan of extortion ery credit card rates if you're a friend of jeffrey abstain then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money excuse me from from the bank. in a world of big partisan 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 smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other
8:41 am
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. what politicians do you suppose to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. will somebody want to. let you go right to the press this is why the 1st 3 of them will be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. bad precedent. we can see which it's perhaps most clearly in the books or documents of date stamped the 10th of september 1976 so very soon after you would have been still
8:42 am
saying it should go with them and we can see that the words have such a strong stick was the existence of a risk of habits like to something you or your parents were aware of time must. we have cash cow and that is dari alfonzo mongery has died. he's died and while it's going there he's died on lost one of the page service cherish unpaid change dard or. busy at 11 years of age richard went to trial lawyers college a special boarding school for children with disabilities. there's 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 signs of the greatest concentration of contaminated blood cases that the u.k.
8:43 am
has ever seen. what it. is that you receive significant quantities of fatty rates of prophylactic they. are crazy about profit. aren't too real target joints and that was my left mate neither of our rights. or our current system why that 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 government came in that pledge in the name went away and they found a way around the. importing this particular product. all these issues were very often at meetings of 1015 people but they were all held in
8:44 am
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 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 batches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them
8:45 am
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 find out why studies in human beings to what extent the infectivity of the various concentrates has been reduced. the reason they used humans instead of 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 factory took 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 they actually looking for figuring in
8:46 am
a safe product or if you want monitoring how you live. your pretend times or if you change their rules or you cd for care why would they be looking at these things. out of the 18. affiliates who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. from liver related problems to have to try to say. i actually feel guilty i'm still here i asked myself the question why am i still alive when you know 70 percent of the him for that boy use the rats college. i've had and i don't care and i'm always question yourself why me i why my son i live by being allowed to live when so many have and.
8:47 am
the official claim was that the new medicines were safe the most emphatic statement 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. type of misinformation and this was the reply we received from kenneth clocks office krista clock 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 on see or questions beyond that initial acknowledgement the cabinet office has not responded
8:48 am
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. 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 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 causing on the contamination his baby was born. after i think
8:49 am
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 a very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. oh in 98 you know i see there and. yes. accident 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.
8:50 am
to not go. it was all in those few months so mixed that together and at the time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the times now sis i could have been positive in which case what we you know we were. being approached child at that time to be in often if you'd 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 s'posed 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 she's shipping jenny.
8:51 am
as it. assists a great sadness to you base this theory that you have to have children. 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. in the lazy a thing. but hey.
8:52 am
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 os and 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 the decision after about a year to split tilt so that i would feel a she could go off and have a family of our on and thankfully she did and we're still friends on facebook so you know she seems happy which is good. this is a very very apt rebate and not such a. very loyal dogs rottweilers are. very protective as wild. animals. one of the greatest comfort she can ever offer. because she can have
8:53 am
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 know when you're in trouble and. it's soothing. to 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 no doubt that what happened was criminal i think the real question is to walk degree was a criminal i mean nothing
8:54 am
a bad minimum we're talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter. perhaps as high as my i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where where those lines made. their criminal prosecutions have been brought in other 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 the crown prosecution service won't be directed to bring those prosecutions it's 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. 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
8:55 am
every doing morning. first witnesses. it was so frightening. i was told about a year to live it was a hard time it's so frightfully experience it wasn't a life. really treasure exams anymore because we did a few years so we will actually. i do feel calmer it. came out we'll switch to a knee. tone swamps it 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 it time to do is to say. we are for is a recognition of. a meaningful compares with
8:56 am
a large group of stories from those. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an
8:57 am
arms race in spearing dramatic development only closely and going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful it's very critical. to sit down and talk. in this community there are people who believe that it's ok. 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 there's a lot of conflict within the game between the teams close to the conflict i would say throw balls around and most of them is made. close one on the children's cosimo each other is good business the state of california alone makes
8:58 am
$6000000000.00 a year of prison complexes you get some 20 alive where. you don't care anymore nobody cares about your so you don't care mind anything. seemed wrong. to me to get to shape out just because get educated and engaged with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. to follow only. i don't see how. you sit. and
8:59 am
talk. on the. spot thank you for. the story that's right. slavery. i. think that the.
