a beacon of british society and of course has been in operation since 1948 but the issue of the crisis in the n.h.s. has led to many people becoming quite concerned when it comes to. many people outside the london hospital of thoughts of the crisis with an n.h.s. it's been 6 hours just sweeping with those hospital just to get a couple stitches on the feeds for my husband last night he had to wait in the embassy was not dead when we called he said the minimum to always wait and he had to drive himself to the hospital a couple in the next $29.00. and they were there within minutes rob ford never had a prob the saying it's. too much people. this is not true it doesn't look like it when you come into the hospital you see the doctors will be looking out for the both what happens is the ambient people can't leave the patient until. they get seen so i think that's part of ease of my.

car for you to control and if you've got call from a viewer in population adding to the existing population every year and you're not building a new hospital you're not building new doctors for agrees the cold we're turning well this isn't the only crisis in scandal to hit the n.h.s. as of late as we know 'd the heart of concerns is post breck's at trade deals and negotiations particularly at the heart of concern is the n.h.s. now the leader of the opposition jeremy corbyn has accused boris johnson of going down the path of selling off the n.h.s. we've now got evidence that on the boris johnson the n.h.s. is on the table and will be up for sale he tried to cover it up in a secret agenda this is the reality use of force down to go see a chanst n.h.s.
8:06 pm
for sale but truth be told that's a barrel of issues when it comes to the n.h.s. from all of us like cuts to services but also a growing population and ageing population evolving health care needs but one of the biggest most crucial factors at the moment is of course the increase of rely it says on the privatized sation when it comes to the national health care system so as you can see the seems to be an unending crisis. russia's foreign minister has spoken out against the united states' decision to impose sanctions on companies involved in the construction of the noid stream 2 gas pipeline sergei lavrov said the move under minds of the sovereignty of european nations and he stressed that the project will be completed despite washington's attempts to block it. so that when the states so it will be finished despite all these threats i am convinced that 1st of all the europeans understand their commercial interests in terms of ensuring long term energy security secondly of course they were humiliated and the
8:07 pm
words we heard from the german side show that our european partners still have their self-respect films looking more and soon to is the 2nd stage of a pipeline network linking russia to germany through the baltic sea once completed the system will transport up to 55000000000 cubic meters of russian natural gas per year to europe are he takes a closer look at how the project has caused a rift between europe and the us washington has weaponized sanctions its official along with spending on nukes the army and cyber ops sanctions are in the u.s. 2020 military budget it started in mission for the year the elimination of one of russia's gas trees into europe currently under construction the united states commands all our european partners who have taken a strong stand against north stream to and we commend others to do the same germany is totally controlled by russia because they will get it from 60 to 70 percent of
8:08 pm
their energy from russia and a new pipeline this pipeline if complete it. would make europe even more dependent on russian energy we don't want your energy supplies to be defended and. to be fair washington has been backed into a corner here it's been arguing and puffing over the project for years dishing out threats and blackmail but to no avail the threat of sanctions says seen key european contractor all seize hold its operations nevertheless in an admittedly rare act of disobedience to the u.s. europe has been on russia's side determined to have the pipeline built as a matter of principle the e.u. opposes the imposition of sanctions against you companies conduct a legitimate business in federal government it's against extraterritorial sanctions we don't approve of this practice we oppose especially extraterritorial sanctions that hit germany and european companies. washington has decided that even the
8:09 pm
closest nato allies don't deserve mercy if the us geo political and commercial ambitions are at stake why while it's easy follow the money russia doesn't ask much for its gas and nord stream too will be europe's cheapest way of getting the blue fuel and that's in stark contrast to the alternative 6 washington is trying to force feed on its treasured allies across the atlantic shale gas because really there's only one economy that has to be strong uncle sam's even at the expense of its nato partners and the made in america stamp may be fancy but the markup for the freedom brand makes the whole affair outright economically stupid for the e.u. also washington's been trying to convince brussels that tightening its belt and enjoying a bit extra economic stress is well worth it because it's all for
8:10 pm
a good cause supporting a nother european a fresh. need ukraine which had been left out of the pipeline deal will keep working together to stop the nord stream to project that undermines your creates economic and strategic security we do not want our european friends to fall prey to the kind of political and economic manipulation russia has attempted in ukraine since it cast off its soviet shackles it would create another tool for the kremlin to use russia's energy resources to divide europe and undermine and destabilize ukraine it was almost like russia listened because hours before sanctions hit north stream to construction most go in kiev shook hands on a gas transit deal so europe all out winds from the pipeline both economically and geopolitically seeing russia and ukraine finally touch base again and this statement by the u.s. envoy to germany hasn't aged well at all. currently there is
8:11 pm
a lot of talk in germany about doing more for europe and we believe that when it comes to north stream 2 we have taken an extremely pro european position washington's crocodile tears are not fooling anyone anymore trying to maintain a compassionate face pretending it's acting in the best of intentions only to have itself exposed as a super bully rolling out one creative plot after the other of forcing its will on friend and foe alike and spokesperson for nord stream it to told our t.v. that the project is essential for ensuring europe's energy security and that work will be finished as soon as possible we asked several analysts for their views on the story. this so well out of this risk. is due to the fact it's really sort of the songwriting got very good it's a traditionalist remained cold holy shit with the banks and so also the very sensitive equation that us is sucked out in and sold to someone to do that. sort of
8:12 pm
sleaze unless they try to avoid problems. 6 leads the position of a specific audience cruxes america doesn't have to be part of every deal that is made on the planet and there are important of course our most important and eyes are germany by on the other hand they have no problem whatsoever to quote the allies under pressure which is not sort of an act of friendship the i believe that the americans were hoping that their pressure would work along the way at some earlier point and now they don't they realize that europeans are very firm and they want to complete an austrian too they want to have the cheaper russian gas delivered to europe and only now are they taking actions because they realize that the game is lost and now they're putting on sanctions to make it difficult for russia and the europeans to close the deal u.s.
8:13 pm
interests that top maintain a rift between western europe and russia because they need in the future more than even more than in the present they need. to have a close ally and did a highly disciplined approach us atlantic western europe at their site. israel's ambassador to the united nations has launched a scathing attack on the international criminal court accusing it of a diplomatic terror that is after the organizations chief prosecutor for 2 bensouda announced plans to investigate alleged war crimes in the palestinian territories. i am satisfied that there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an investigation into the situation in palestine well crimes have been being committed in the west bank including east jerusalem and the gaza strip the i.c.c. prosecutor's decision has turned the international criminal court into
