8:35 pm

8:37 pm
the late seventy's he sees fit to concentrates because that's where the doctor saw him and everyone i'll see use. maybe 1983 so the 1st reported case of the british hemophiliac contracting the disease. tickles appeared in the press claiming that fact it 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 became very difficult 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
8:38 pm
the end. he took to new statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. her charge in the early turks who christian people don't get very for you were. 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 had been a prominent locally and then one not right i walked into a pub to play mama and the landlord just pointed out me and said you get out
8:39 pm
the pool team i've been playing with they all still there not one of them tried to defend me i fell 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 a view you were gay or you druggies or or some kind of what they sold to be and
8:40 pm
desirable. by 9190 nights a he'd 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 when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it on the official
8:41 pm
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. and they want on the record that there is liability and then i'll be satisfied. interest rates are split gapping and 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 him bantustan of extortion ery credit card rights if you're
8:42 pm
a friend of jeffrey abstain then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money from from the bank. a paradise with some around turned into a round experimentation field to agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments with often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel
8:43 pm
they can get away with this because the people have less political power. we can see which perhaps most clearly important document to date stamp 10th of september 1976 so very soon after you would have been starting it should all come
8:44 pm
and we can see the words have otitis rights was the existence of a risk of have a tie to something you or your parents were aware of the time martial. 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 ever. at 11 years of age richard went to true laws 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. has ever seen. busy what you say is that you receive significant quantities
8:45 pm
of patsey rates on a prophylactic base. they were crazy about. aren't 2 real target joints and that was my left made in the right. for our current system why they 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 death came in that pledge and that aim 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 meeting. the main
8:46 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 batches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them into chimpanzees it is unlikely that the manufacturers will be able to guarantee
8:47 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 that 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 a safe product to be one to monitoring how you live. your pretend times or
8:48 pm
if you change their rules or you cd for care why would they be looking at these things. out of the 8. 9 hemophiliacs who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. 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 him feel that boy use the rocks 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.
8:49 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 kang. the well known kenneth clark 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 chris the clock has chosen to decline with request and from the u.k. department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leads 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.
8:50 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'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 here 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. after i think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went next year i'll be
8:51 pm
the same age my dad was when he died. i think about if i was to die of it 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. accident show we certainly. knew pretty soon after and she went to see. where we were advised really in no uncertain terms not care to look at. it was all in those few months so mixed together and at the time we were still
8:52 pm
reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the times now sis i could have been positive in which case what would we you know. being in a could charge at that time to be in often if you to come into the world we didn't know how long we have all 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 shifting journey. as it. assists
8:53 pm
a great sadness to you base this being that you have to have children. a problem if there. really. anything you would. 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 baird was also thinking of starting a family his girlfriend was
8:54 pm
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 you know and she seems happy which is good. missionary very apt rebate and that 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
8:55 pm
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. it's soothing. the. 2 attempts were made over 40 years to investigate the causes of this medical disaster in the u.k. but sofa no one has been held accountable. for the current inquiries 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 a bad minimum we're talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps
8:56 pm
corporate manslaughter. perhaps. and i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where those lines may lean. 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 doing morning. first witnesses. it was so frightening.
8:57 pm
i was told about a year to live it was a hard time it's so frightfully experience it wasn't any life. really try for exams anymore because we did a few years so we will actually. i don't feel calmer it. came out we'll switch to a knee. tone swan 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 just to see. for his recognition of. the larger. story from those.
8:58 pm
and. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront ation let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic development only mostly and
8:59 pm
going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. in this community there are people who believe that it's ok to sell fractional 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 there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the teams most of the conflicts i would say are overhauls around money and most of their money is made. close one on each of those he know each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of prison complex just to get some point in your life where. you don't care anymore no cares about your so you don't care mind anything.
9:00 pm
that was how it was. that. putin and the man well mccrone discuss the ukraine conflict the wrong crisis in a friendly encounter on the french riviera. the u.s. conducts its 1st test range cruise missile since pulling out the nonce treaty with russia. a british social media network aimed at young british muslims is revealed to be pawns of a government plan to tackle radicalization.
