4:36 am
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 facts concentrate and then it was only shortly after that the his 1st choice the tests came back as positive. 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. to in your statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that.
4:37 am
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 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 mate and said you get out the pool tame i've been playing with but i also don't they're not one of them thought to be for me i'll help sick. and i thought dead.

4:39 am
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 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
4:40 am
there is liability and then i'll be satisfied. with. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to go right to the press this is like the before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. first sip.
4:41 am
oh why paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field the 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 but often in day you have many of these people who have 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 racism going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. joined me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to
4:42 am
a guest of the world of politics sport this list i'm showbusiness i'll see of that . 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 and we can see the words have otitis rights was the existence of a risk of hepatitis something you or your parents were aware of the time russia. 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 changed guard. at 11 years of
4:43 am
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. has ever seen. busy what it. is that you receive significant quantities of fatty rates of prophylactic they. are crazy. to us aren't 2 real target joints nose mild left me 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.
4:44 am
when she drove him in that pledge in 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 beneficiaries of that secrecy were pharmaceutical companies. these companies had a huge financial motivation to sow these problems today the facts call. and freight market is a 1000000000 dollar industry in order for me to say our product is safer than this company they needed a trial date that showed we've used this product and it's not infectious and in this country at least as. often as consultants to the pharmaceutical home.
4:45 am
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 this form of quality control for all future batches it is therefore very important to 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
4:46 am
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 are they want monitoring how you live. or. are you cd for care why would they be looking at racing. out of the 8090 about. who went to trial is college 72 died. and people are still dying. for a liver related problems to have a charge say. i actually feel guilty i'm still here i asked myself the
4:47 am
question why am i still alive. you know 70 percent of him feel that boy use rats college and i've had enough. and i'm always crushing me so why me i why am i saying 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 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
4:48 am
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 leads 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. 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 him countless times over the last 34 years.
4:49 am
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 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 was to die 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.
4:50 am
accident shall we say. were near 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 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 would we you know we were being approached. 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 suffered terribly i couldn't walk away from a man who are supposed to love. just when he needed me most and once we found out
4:51 am
that i was ok afterwards. he. realized that if i was going to be a mother it wouldn't be with richard and i chose to say with richard he said you're a perfect stream really loving and supportive wife yes she's shifting journey. as it. assists a great sadness to you base this be that you have to have children. there . anything you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice. only
4:52 am
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 os and 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 good. this is
4:53 am
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 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
4:54 am
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 we're talking 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 fronts 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
4:55 am
a successful prosecution is to avoid bringing it to. 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. first witnesses. he was so bright. i was told about a year to live he was a part time is so frightfully experience it wasn't a life. really try for exams any more because he would be dead in a few years. i don't feel like i was. came out the. tone just want to sit down the house hard enough is no way should have to do that we just wanted to be with them.
4:56 am
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 group of simply stolen from us. interest
4:57 am
rates spur gapping and the spread is widening into 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 paid to lend money or to borrow money excuse me 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 lots of arguments and there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the 2 teams most of the conflicts i
4:58 am
would say are over most romani and most of them is me. close one you know the children's children is good because the state of california alone 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 about anything. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. dramatic to follow to the only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful. to sit down and talk.
4:59 am
i. think that the.
5:00 am
headlines in our t.v. u.s. confirms carrying out the 1st test of a cruise missile previously banned by a treaty signed between moscow and washington over 30 years ago. u.s. attorney general. director of prisons after the suicide of geoffrey epstein he discussed the conditions at the jail where he took his own life with his former lawyer. fundamentally wrong with that is that geoffrey abstain did not belong in that facility to begin with and it's been revealed that british social media network and young muslims it's hard i think you can plan to tackle radicalization.
