10 o'clock here in moscow and you're watching on international live from our studio with me. welcome to the program a leading name in the hong kong a protest movement has appealed to u.s. lawmakers at a congressional hearing on future ties between washington and the chinese autonomy territory joshua wang has been pushing them to pass the hong kong human rights and democracy act which would want to the region status with beijing in return for ongoing special economic. hong kong special status under american law that bans on the city being treated as a separate customs area beijing should not have it both ways wrapping all the economy benefit of hong kong standing in the world while erosion of our freedom this is the most important reason why the hong kong human rights and democracy act and just the bought some throws off hong kong civil society. joshua one is a prominent student activist who organizes protests against the chinese government
3:02 pm
in support of hong kong's independence the 22 year old is also a leader of the pro democratic party demo sisto he's already served several jail terms for his activities mr ones visit to new york over the weekend through huge attention from the media the reuters news agency the new york times and bloomberg among those who asked for an interview or invited him to their offices he also gave a speech to students at the prestigious columbia university one as long as supported the hong kong human rights and democracy act and recently said he expects it to be passed easily the bill proposes support for hong kong from the u.s. so long as it remains governed at arm's length from beijing if not that could trigger washington to revoke the city's special status as equal shit ton of reports they are many they've won the fight with the authorities by early submission but they are anything but done the american flag waving taskforce among the hong kong
3:03 pm
protesters are sending their poster boy to convince us legislators to do something big on autonomy. absolutely. well for those of you having difficulty making out the absence of this boilerplate script it's the human rights and democracy act and it's meant to shill be doing that the us is serious about fighting for hong kong's rights the united states must make clear to china that its interference in hong kong's affairs will have consequences this month we must part of by cameron bipartisan on consumer rights and democracy act the bill was devised in response to what the u.s. has been calling a chinese infringement on the region's autonomy and requires for america to review on combs special status annually. and if that status is ever revoked the region's
3:04 pm
autonomy would not so much been fringed but rather new to dust since the early ninety's hong kong has been enjoying huge advantages for wearing washington's special status badge. and some believe that a small yet vocal group of protesters is laying an explosive tripwire for the whole region which will not enjoy the konami chain reaction if it's ever triggered taking away this they've just. to get hold of the ready biggest economy in the world without a state and city local is just ordered. is going to hold a great deal but it's not just the whole poorly there are all the thousands all united states don't believe in ready all of it would likewise be affected of course
3:05 pm
it's full of a cold war because well because only or percent of policy products. say about tale of the deal years ago in the occult to all moral as far as equality is also so strong so big it's now but now is a saint on the other hand of course we lost i would wish the one country to see so as to help china with the internationalization the religion with the real and source of all american legislators say the bill is designed to punish mainland china specifically as protesters want shown not to but while the end goal may very well be punishing beijing in pursuit of a geo political supremacy washington my just overlook the collateral damage. that. sending in israel in the unprecedented 2nd parliamentary election is being
3:06 pm
described as a referendum on prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's after a record 5th term but he failed to form a coalition following april's ballot and exit polls show it's a tight race where we cross live now to tel aviv straight to our middle east correspondent paula obviously keeping across this is it likely that a record 5th is on the horizon for netanyahu. it's very difficult to say that of course is the 1000000 dollar question and that's when our who essentially is fighting for his political life we've just received the 1st set of exit polls from one of the israeli television channels channel 12 they put netanyahu in 2nd place they put the guns party that is the party headed by a former i.d.f. chief with the most number of seats at 34 seats and netanyahu at 33 now this means that neither party has been able to form
3:07 pm
a majority but the way the israeli law works is that the party that has the most number of seats and if indeed these initial exit polls prove true it means that guns whose political party is centered on the same to live will be the one tossed by the country's president to put together the next coalition government yeah i mean if left in you know who doesn't win paula could we see a 3rd round of elections. well this is the scenario that everyone is trying to avoid and a few hours ago the country's president rivlin made a statement and he published it on facebook in which he said that he was going to do to quote everything leads politics try and prevent a 3rd round of elections this is the 2nd time israelis have gone to the polls in 6 months and one of the big questions was voter turnout whether or not people in fact would turn out to. twice in 6 months the early indications are that this time voter
3:08 pm
turnout was slightly higher than the elections back in april by 1 and a hoss percent so although many israelis are feeling fatigued and many of them feel that these elections are not achieving anything it does seem as if they turned out we have heard from the israeli president saying that if indeed neither netanyahu could party nor the party of big guns who at this stage as i say the initial polls suggest is coming 1st if neither of them are able to form a majority coalition the president says that he will then approach political parties and see if there's any way that anybody else can form a majority coalition so we are hearing a concerted effort by the israeli president who is responsible for this whole process to make sure it will to at least try and prevent another round of elections you have a problem there is a problem there isn't paula because attempt that was created to. create a coalition with the liberal did fail who lies in that.
3:09 pm
well lieberman who is a former defense minister has really become the king in these elections remember of course that was back in april that because he refused to join forces with them with netanyahu so he could party that the prime minister was unable to form a majority government now what indications are that lieberman will not join forces with netanyahu have been hearing from these 1st exit polls that time yahoo and right wing parties without me the men will only get 57 seats they need a majority of 61 out of 120 seats in a state parliament to actually form the next government the initial results also suggest that if indeed gunsmiths party in the form ideas chief forms. with the arab parties which i must have come in at this stage and 3rd position they will then get. majority of $63.00 seats but the question there is whether or not
3:10 pm
lieberman who really falls on the right of the political spectrum will be part of that coalition and that seems highly unlikely so there's a lot of questions being asked in terms of how this new coalition will go but let me repeat that at this stage the initial results suggest that the party of the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in 2nd place meaning that it is his rival who will be tossed to actually form the next government but of course it remains to be seen if indeed he is successful in doing this we'll keep updated with . we know that trump has thrown his backing behind the current prime minister do you think that's been influential in any way at all. it certainly is influential it's a question i've been posing to israelis is why do they support or why don't they support netanyahu and many of those who support netanyahu put forward the reasoning that number one he has this excellent relationship with world leaders and they point to his track record with the american president as proof and number 2 they
3:11 pm
say that they believe that there's no one else besides netanyahu who can provide for israel's security you know who has used in all his election posters you need to just drive down any street in any of the major cities here in israel then you'll see netanyahu alongside trump meaning that netanyahu understands that that kind of presentation the neck kind of politicking goes and goes down very well with the israeli public who were gone america as israel's closest alliance and we have heard from trump saying that this is likely to be a very tight race he said he was right on that score saying it was 5050 in terms of who would when i do want to make one point the regardless of whether it's netanyahu or god yourself whether it's benny gantz who comes in and forms the next government their policies although the one is saying to lift in the one is right they policies all of the other some of them on a certain number of issues particularly the issue of the of the palestinian peace process. that's why we saw it on yahoo just a short time ago saying that if indeed he's elected and makes parts of the west
3:12 pm
bank the west bank settlements and the dog and that he and guns said something very similar he did say that he saw that the jordan valley would ultimately become israel's eastern border and so one mustn't expect too much difference in terms of some israeli politics were gone this of which actually comes in. ok i'm sure we'll be talking to you later middle east correspondent paula. fighting racism is a touchstone topic for us democrat joe biden's push for the white house on sunday he gave an impassioned speech at a black church but a few days earlier during a presidential debate when pressed on segregation on the legacy of slavery he switched to african americans on how they should bring up their children and explains how biden's been caught before in crossing the line from empathy to condescension joe by the way the vice president is now running in the democratic
3:13 pm
primary enjoys a huge amount of support from the african-american voters and he wants them to know he really cares about what responsibility do you think that americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country make sure that we bring into the help the teachers deal with the problems that come from home we bring social workers into homes with parents to help them deal with how to raise their children it's not their want to help they don't want they don't know quite what to do play the. make sure you have the record player on. the phone make sure the kids hear words of the kid coming from a very poor school or a very poor background who hear 4000000 words fewer spoken by the time they get there the record player now he seems a couple decades behind on modern technology but it's also a tad bit condescending don't you think now some are calling it shaming biden. liberal racist white downs better start calling this out because black women are
3:14 pm
watching if joe biden isn't forced out of the running now i give up 1st he looks into the camera and laughs at the mash of racial inequality in us schools and we could racists that he describes black home life and parenting in a way that is stunningly ignorant and insulting drew bidens on how to address the literacy of slavery was appalling and disqualifying now this isn't the 1st time that joe is flubbed an answer when it comes to a racial issue he made some remarks when barack obama was selected as the democratic party candidate in 2008 that he probably meant to sound like a compliment i mean you get the 1st mainstream african-american who's are to cool it and bright and clean and a nice looking guy joe biden's comments point to an increasing phenomenon in us society being referred to as liberal racism joe biden is not burning a cross or arguing that non-whites are inferior but he does seem to have
3:15 pm
a touch of a white savior complex he comes across as condescending to those he thinks he's helping a study refers to it as a competence downshift and joe biden is not the only one what liberals may unwittingly draw negative stereotypes demean themselves down in a likely well meaning folksy but ultimately patronizing attempt to connect with the outgroup democratic party is pretty put on our list economy you can look you see auto policies from the welfare state to dave put into place to live thinks that blacks generally aren't as smart as whites and really would point to is the democrats projecting a lot of their own insecurities upon everyone knows they say everyone is races everyone is it seems everyone is all those days and if they're when it's really them they feel that way and it's hard to say that it's the other side actually feels that way for decades the democratic party has been promising to help minorities in the united states but do party leaders actually see them. well members of society well joe biden's recent comments have got plenty of people
3:16 pm
asking that question. archie new york. the leader of britain's opposition labor party is in the crosshairs after a washington think tank suggested that if he becomes prime minister he might pass classified u.s. intelligence to russia where it goes to look at the sinister suspicions willing around jeremy corbyn. it could all have escaped your notice the world seems to have been tipped upside down and recent years what made sense a few years ago is now considered crazy what was thought of as downright insane a few years ago now considered sensible like a potential british prime minister being called a russian agent by britain's best friend the report urges mr trump to consider withholding sense different from asian and even pushing for the country's nato membership to be downgraded if the labor leader and his downing street analysts are
3:17 pm
states that if labor takes office there would be a serious risk that information passed to corbin or his allies could be compromised especially if it was russia were iran the up somehow everyone with security clearance in the u.k. one of the most heavily surveilled nations on earth everyone missed that journey corben might be compromised but america somehow figured it out that is if you trust u.s. intelligence agencies whose report was apparently seen by a think tank analyst the british opposition leaders you know sympathetic to putin are you really me we were due to speak out against the abuse of human rights by the putin government and its supporters both at home and abroad and i join many others in this house in paying tribute to the many campaigners in russia for human rights and justice and democracy in that country is critical of russia he supported
3:18 pm
stringent sanctions against russia all very anti russian stuff but he made a mistake you see when the souls we spied trail of staging the world's most botched and barassi in poisoning with putin himself firing the starting pistol corbin dead ask. the evidence proof that it was the russian government who did it. who does that either this was a crime or fluted by the russian state or that state has allowed these deadly toxins to slip out of the control it has an obligation to exercise if the latter connection to russian mafia like groups that have been allowed to gain a tool hold in britain cannot be excluded. that's what he said nothing about false flags or conspiracies the question was really the kremlin or whether russian
3:19 pm
criminals got their hands on it in the past when sense meant being sensible that may have been a legitimate question but in this new reality you don't do sensible things you do like borish johnson was then foreign secretary who lived and said that the poison could only have come from russia he claimed categorically and i think he used the words 109 percent to come from russia porton down have not said the eyes of the foreign secretary has information that he's not sharing with porton down or it was a bit of exaggeration if you're an adult that leads the school level education you have heard illegitimate query being floated if you're a paid pundit with an agenda and flexible set a morals you have heard blah blah blah my name is jeremy corbyn and i love the u.s.s.r. now if that got their mouths frothing imagine it catatonia those hacks went into
3:20 pm
when who'd been spokes person compared the souls very poor isn't ings the whole works about iraq's weapons of mass destruction. i think obviously the government has access to information and intelligence on this matter which others don't however also there is a history in relation to w m d and intelligence which is problematic to put it mildly now some of the reactions are a bit too full on to show you here but come on you know what happens there anyone who gets in the way of the russia bashing express their mood down and maybe got over a few times for good measure who wins problem is he just doesn't learn from pain less it is if russia is blamed for anything you have to believe that time magazine pretty much says so although the washington post took a more scientific approach listing corbin's faults one by one the
3:21 pm
opposition labor party leader and his spokesman a refused to accept that the kremlin was responsible be british intelligence c complained that moscow had not been accorded due process and d. so the right response was robust dialogue he doubted the faceless intelligence agencies with horrific track records wanted jew process and justice foundation of human rights dialogue rather than health you know i've done no more to say here i'll leave you with this the day american intelligence agencies learn to keep classified reports classified rather than leak them weekly is the day we can perhaps trust them to tie their own shoelaces. the british are renowned as a nation of dog lovers and they're very fond of their cats to say the thought of eating dog or cat meat is enough pretty much to turn anyone stomach an e.t.a.
3:22 pm
yet a proposed ban on to and so has reportedly been blocked by the government apparently at a fair being culturally insensitive towards southeast asians nations. we currently have some of the strongest animal welfare laws in the world the government is currently considering whether any changes are needed in this area in u.k. and will set out any plans in due course dogs are our companion animals we do not eat them and that's a very important message to send to the rest of the world it's not culturally insensitive because we're not telling them what to do we're just telling them what we do we shouldn't be worrying about that so i was surprised that the justice ministries objection. me to food in many cultures as a delicacy and health tonic is really consumed in southeast asia with china and south korea being the biggest markets some 30000000 dogs are thought to be killed for their meat every year as for cat mate but again china is by far the biggest consumer although it's also reportedly occasionally eaten in a handful of other countries around the world as for britain although dealing in
3:23 pm
such meat is banned it now looks like eating it won't be outlawed we put that up for discussion earlier. i think it's you know the does a sort of danger of hypocrisy creeping in i think all animals should be treated in respect of their welfare and their care and their comfort but you know the frontis is that we're meeting a species. that the morality that we're trying to impose on a miniature imo sympathy you know for cutting down the meat industry for its carbon dioxide emissions. machines and so on it's called species as and that's the idea that some animals are usually those that are closest to like dogs and cats are superior whereas other animals like pigs and chickens are inferior well that's not based on anything other than arbitrary characteristics and it species has on that
3:24 pm
allows us to take some animals and her homes to treat them as companions as pets and then to treat other animals as commodities and to kill them for nothing more than their flasher for their fur you know there is no morally superior plane all the complexion of empathy. you know in relation to these matters if you are starving in the middle of sub-saharan africa a dog may be your best source of protein. and absolutely absolutely but like we're talking about people yeah i'm in london and i can go to the supermarket i live in a city of abundant choices it is so easy for me to choose a bean burger rather than a beef burger and i think not a britain where you do have a multicultural country who's to decide. as the sanctity of life and which money on
3:25 pm
a mole is free for the slaughterhouse is inconsistent it's not morally consistent it's not. legally consistent and i think ultimately and sleepy consistent there isn't any moral any ethical any logical difference and between a dog and a pagan if we decry the dog meat trade then naturally we also need to decry the pork industry and all of the meat industry is because they're all cruel they all cost suffering and alternately they all kill animals needlessly for a fleeting moment of taste of the news for now i'll be back at the top there now with more updates so do stay with us. when lol make this manufacture consent instead of public wealth. when the ruling classes can protect themselves. with the final
3:26 pm
merry go round lives only the one percent. we can all middle of the room signals. the real news is. they all see themselves as dying swans in their dreams. but only one in the cells and will ever make it to the top. they're ready to give their lives for the chance to die on stage if only once. not even broken wings could deter them. for generations at the madrid ski theatre ballet sweat and tears on o.t.
3:27 pm
. pain years crossed i've started 10 years i think it's time to shake things up maybe change the branding maybe the format here is what i've been thinking about next season related episodes filmed on an island 10 experts fight it out for a trophy what do you think ok a more affordable option $25.00 text birds. and one red rose another suggestion geo political jeopardy parody no political cookout where we will literally wrote the elites. late night show it's a rare format. these days she is an old microphone in a printed band. but. i guess i can do this. after politics ready gone wild like music. ok crosstalk is not about hype about me 10 years of talk and still going strong.
