6:33 pm
a letter that says on it that i was tested in 1900. without my knowledge i was found to be positive but it also says that i found an old sample of my blood from a man tonight and i was positive then. but i could have been working on why i could have been sleeping with somebody and it would have more to for me if i have infected a girl what gives them doctors the wrong to play god what about a risk on the people's laws why didn't they tell me. in 1981 i knew had previously unheard of disease was discovered in the united states acquired immune deficiency syndrome aids. in january 982 with the 1st hemophiliac contracted aids in the u.s. no in more cases have been recorded by the end of the year 8 of which were terminal

6:35 pm
crazy. i'm very thankful he told those videos because it's the evidence why memory doesn't have. kids he was a father to me and he raised me and was doing everything a father should do. towards the late seventy's he sees concentrates because that as with adults is just on him and everyone i'll 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 his 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
6:36 pm
that the his 1st choice b. tests came back as opposed to. things just very difficult for a strain on the relationship with my mom you know they'd only got married and nothing their life went from being one of planning for the future to planning for the end. he took to new statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. in the early days christian people don't get to see where you were lower. 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
6:37 pm
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 locally and then one no i thought i walked into a pole to play mama and the landlord just pointed out me and said you get out the pool tame i've been playing with but i also don't they're not one of them talked to the family of how sick. and i thought dead. this was a classic case of. well informed. it doesn't take away the fact that it made me feel
6:38 pm
a lot rubbish. my dad lost his job among got such from her job they received hate mail phone calls making fun of. the stigma is incredible it's this whole thing though if you had a zoom you a gay or you were a drug user or some kind of what they sold to be an desirable person. by 9190 nights a verio. you had progressed to say it's only opportunistic infections using off way slowly going through a horrible death. and. by the end of my 3. news news that.
6:39 pm
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 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 from apes. so they want on the record that there is liability then i'll be satisfied.
6:40 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only move slowly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. a. little.
6:41 pm
i am. so so so so so. yes.
6:42 pm
and very well continue watching us and just. one almost seems wrong like all day long just don't call it the old days yet to shape out this day. and it gets tricky because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. we can see richard's perhaps most clearly documented date stamped 10th of september 976 so very soon after you would have been still saying it should all of them and
6:43 pm
we can see the words hepatitis really sticks with the existence of the risk of hepatitis something you or your parents were aware of. the show. we 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 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 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
6:44 pm
of fats are a sort of prophylactic they. are crazy about. aren't too real target joints nose mild left me in the right. for 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. 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 the. importing this particular product. all these issues were very often at meetings of 1015 people but they were all held in secret no one was allowed to publish the minutes of the meetings. the main
6:45 pm
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 the need 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
6:46 pm
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 fink ok so what are they actually looking for figuring in a safe product or if you want to monitoring how you live. or
6:47 pm
if you trace there was are you cd for care i would be looking for a spring. out of the 80. 9 hemophiliacs 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 here i asked myself the question why am i still alive when you know 70 percent of the hang 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 soon i live by being allowed to live when so many have and.
6:48 pm
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 putting out that type of misinformation and this was the reply we received from kenneth clocks office krista clarke has chosen to decline this request and from the u.k. department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leaders and therefore they will be the ones best placed on say 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.
6:49 pm
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 passing on the contamination his baby was born. in think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went next year i'll be the same
6:50 pm
age my dad was when he died. i think about if i was to die that next year at that age that would have been really a very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. oh in 1903 tina and. yes. the accident show we certainly. knew pretty soon after and she went to see her doctor. where we were advised really in no uncertain terms. to look at. it was all in those few months all mixed up together and at the
6:51 pm
time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the diagnosis i could have been positive in which case what were we you know we were bringing approach child at that time to be an orphan if you to come into the world we didn't know how long we have or the child could have been positive as well as me in which case was it morally right to give birth to a child that i be you know 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 she's shipping to me. as it. assists
6:52 pm
a great sadness to you base this being that you have to have children. a problem if. anything you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice sally lacey a thing. but. martin bed was also thinking of starting a family his girlfriend was
6:53 pm
a nurse at the hospital where he received his treatment. i've got the dial m. earth hemophilia awesome not on 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 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 a good. missionary 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
6:54 pm
lousiest day in the world when you walk in that house and the dogs are pleased to see you. dogs know when you're in i mean i know when you're in trouble and. 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 bad better we're talking
6:55 pm
about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter perhaps as high as and 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 though 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 every day morning our 1st witnesses. it was so frightening.
6:56 pm
i was told i had about a year to live it was a hard time is so frightfully experience it wasn't a life. really try for exams anymore because we did a few years. i don't think i would. come out. came out we'll speak to any. tone just want to sit down it's 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 have simply stolen from us. interest
6:57 pm
rates spike and gapping in the spread is widening and what i call the interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the friends of jeffrey epstein you end up in a 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
6:58 pm
paid to lend money or to borrow money from from the bank. 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 arguments there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the teams most of the conflicts i would say are over most of the money and most of them money is made. close one you know the children's children is good because the state of california makes 6000000000 dollars you have to prison complex just to get some point in your life where. you don't care anymore nobody cares about you so you don't care mind anything. what holds its
6:59 pm
institutions a little. bit put themselves on the law and. they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to be rich. have to be right to be cross that's what before the 3 of them or can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of the caller's. question. so small seemed wrong when old roles just don't call. me old yet to say proud disdain become educated and in games from an equal betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the.
7:00 pm
