9:02 am
as a smoke screen against the police who are trying to stop them greek officers are also foreign water cannon and anybody who approaches the border fence tens of thousands of refugees. i've been gathering along the great border since ankara decided last week to rip up a 2016 migration deal on friday tensions are high across the board. 12 e.u. chiefs have said they won't be pressurised foreign ministers were meeting on friday to discuss the situation here on the border between greece and turkey amid fresh
9:03 am
tensions as you can see some of the army vehicles leading the border area now and this is both sides have been accusing the other of using tear gas we've had images from the greek side that they say shows turkish c.s. gas being deployed into no man's land and into their territory what they described as being a series of coordinated attacks they've also provided us with images which show c.s. gas canisters that they say they were able to lay to retrieve which have markings on them now they have also been reports that the. military and the police force aiding the migrants to try and cross into greek territory in fact some are even accusing them of trying to jewelry and she using violence to demand access to not just greece but the e.u. but those are of course unconfirmed reports now the e.u. foreign affairs minister has been defiant about the situation and has said that the
9:04 am
buddha's will remain closed if you want to avoid a critical situation. if people have to. they don't have to tell the people. and people have already passed. lead to this. well turkey has said it borders will remain open they have been open now for a round a week and we know that camps are forming on the other side on the turkish side as migrants come close to the border in the hope of getting into the e.u. . right now amid these skirmishes between the 2 sides we know that turkey is now reinforcing its security forces on the border. a 1000 special forces
9:05 am
officers are being deployed to the merrick river on the border fully equipped 3 people being pushed back now i just want to give you a sense of how many people have tried to get through temps or have been of people trying to get through in the last week we're talking 203040000 attempts in the 12 hours between thursday evening and friday morning they were just under 3000 attempts actually down from the night before when there was some 7000 attempts for people to get through the border now turkey has said this is syrians who are waiting to try and cross into the e.u. 3 says that's not true in fact they've given the statistics that show all of the around 250 people that have been arrested in the last week the majority were from afghanistan some 64 percent they said in regard to syrians who have been arrested it so far only 4 percent but the feeling here in greece is one of defiance we know that they're also trying to extend the fence the physical fence between turkey and greece extending it from around 12 and
9:06 am
a half kilometers up to 40 kilometers and in fact we've seen new barbed wire fencing passing us it stands defiant and it has the e.u. to back it the message to migrants. ates you shall not postes. ski aussie casting yes on the greek took. but we discuss the growing crisis there with a political analyst from grace and also with the turkish ambassador. the greek government there's no other option in his or her needs borders as it's defendants who have the guns now there are 4000 of them my wrongs are already in the zone between greece and turkey if greece accept them we're going to be. 500000 more personable people. being applied i don't see what the government could do but we mustn't forget during the previous refugee crisis. the system you're actually costs over this might be part of this were destroyed we have been
9:07 am
taking care of the asylum seekers for the last 10 years and we have spent more than 40 billions. worrying about them is that concept which can be described as a daily dollar short the europeans should not have caused their ears to our warnings for the last 7 years we call them numerous times and we're still telling them the solution is to bring democracy to syria the solution is that for the user to use to go to europe or for them to stay in turkey and now fortunately the part there was ignoring us and now i think they are starting to take us seriously. now the number of confirmed corona virus cases worldwide has exceeded 100000 that is the world health organization has warned it is still premature to predict when the outbreak will start to decline. we do not know yet what the activity or the behavior of this wireless will be in different climatic conditions and it's
9:08 am
a false hope to say yes it will just disappear in the summertime like influenza virus we hope it goes i would die would be a godsend but we can't make that assumption over the past 24 hours for more cases have been confirmed in russia bringing the total number in the country to 14 or 4 often needing identified individuals had recently visited a silly far to say that they have traced all those who had contact with them and putting them under medical supervision many more and russia who have visited virus hotspots have been put into quarantine the russian has this report on how the country is handling the situation. the man who was russia's 1st patient came of a flight from milan we now know that the virus is in russia and an epidemic may have started the effects of which are difficult to predict at the communal 13 here
9:09 am
is a very interesting virus and it falls the cells into thinking that it contains something beneficial and the cells accept it. if you feel unwell i was difficult to breathe should you go to a hospital you know you need to go all 3 or one or 3 medics will come in assess the situation if they find out that the patient has a serious risk or infection and has been in risk areas then the bishop will be taken into quarantine. i went to competition in italy where there was no app demick at the time a few days after i arrived back home to russia i started to feel unwell now in a new municipal hospital while originally started from the initial infection from the. province and here at the moment of the specific moment when i understood that the situation was serious it took one or 2 days on the 22nd of december i was out with friends the next day i wanted to go to the city center who of my friend told me the metro had been closed but those 8 year i tried entering the metro but it was
9:10 am
shot everything was closed to me and the 144 people were evacuated to 2 men from who were on their arrival they were all examined by specialists. how is it that so many people who spend so much time at the center of an epidemic have not been infected 144 people were evacuated and not one of them was infected why. the probability of infection from this new coronavirus was high but restrictive measures have been taken firstly limited movement around the city secondly wearing masks can frequently be washing hands. the main recommendations for avoiding infection 1st of all good care of the nose and throat this. means rinsing and don't be lazy or rinse until you feel your airways are clear. thousands of spanish students are rallied in madrid against sex education plans by the right wing vox party demonstrators chanted feminist slogans and carried banners denouncing the
9:11 am
so-called parental veto under the box proposal parents would have to give permission for children to join school workshops perceived as ideological and that would include classes on sex education gender and other issues like climate change so far only the regional mercia has introduced the plans it has been condemned by the national government but local authorities are refusing to repeal the move. we will not do it because it says the government does not believe in the world we believe in namely the freedom of fathers and mothers and homophobic family does not have the right to make their children homophobic as well parental authority cannot be confused with property. in the u.k. to education is part if we respect clash from september classes covering the she will become compulsory there and that protests among parents particularly from really just lunacy we put me back. i think is absolutely right that parents do have
9:12 am
a right to teach their own children according to their beliefs but the education system has a responsibility to give children a comprehensive education and to give them information to safeguard their health and welfare to say that the state must come in and muscle in into an area which parents are we doing extremely well for thousands of years is just simply it's not good the primary responsibility in fact rest for the parents and parents do have the right to opt out of of sex education a majority of parents think it is the responsibility of the schools to do that they're happy and content for that and if you look around the world in every country where there are rip. anti sex wars and low cost sex and leisure bridge occasion the levels of teenage pregnancies and abortions are much much higher michel as long as these classes of thoughtfully and the not indoctrinating children what what's the problem here are the programs which encourage more
9:13 am
knowledge and more explicit knowledge were completely and utterly counterproductive whereas those which encourage abstinence people waiting so that they you know they gauge sexual activity when they're ready and mature those were the ones those were the programs which were seen to be the best for teenagers uganda a long time ago are banned and sex education and went for abstinence only to discourage young people having sex the end result was increased teenage pregnancies and rocketing levels of hiv pairing what happens in this country uganda is comparing apples and pears completely inappropriate comparison i would suggest ever since we have seen the introduction of such heads. cation in this country has something which is compulsory since 1983 unfortunately there has been a long mitigated disaster which has happened in this country we have seen as t.d.'s and teenagers and young people go out to see abortion go up we've seen all social indicators of things that happen to young people have risen in relation to sexual
9:14 am
matters it is proven throughout the world that early good quality age appropriate relationships extrication does actually work what the educated the people who know what they're talking about and they've studied this going back for decades that really the. waiting and respecting yourself these are these are the programs which work best out of the most healthy which lead to the best and most prosperous society and what ultimately what's the best interest of every child. as brilliant as michael bloomberg and tom style quit the u.s. presidential race critics have suggested that their focus on spending money rather than discussing their policies played a part it was done of expects. russians are at it again and of plotting to purchase another 4 years of presidency for trump or at least this is the reality tom styer is living in donald everyone knows that in 2060 russia bought the election for you
9:15 am
we're not going to let the happen again i'm all in to defeat you in 2020 if you don't know who tom styer is or what's so great about him don't worry many americans don't know either he's a failed run for the democratic nomination and outrageous spend on his own campaign style as a bid to topple donald trump is backed by his fellow loser mike bloomberg who spent even more trying to buy his way into the hearts of voters the sum is so offensively large in fact it even had emerson b.c. confused you see it as a possibility if you want to spend a 1000000000 bucks beating this guy he could do it absolutely and somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money he's spending on every american and i know in dollars well it's a lot less disturbing if you get the math right quick arithmetic lesson guys 500000000 divided by $327000000.00 is roughly
9:16 am
$1.00 well dollars not 1000000 this aside though style and bloomberg combined spent more than $750000000.00 on their campaigns before super tuesday that's more than all other democratic candidates combined and as much as the entire hillary clinton campaign officially cost back in 2016 including primaries and the had to had with the trump yet all these good zillions failed to secure even one delegate for stare while bloomberg. get $61.00 and in case anyone from m.s.n. b c is watching it's math time again and that's more than $8000000.00 the delegate you clearly can't buy the election to be some rich guy but
9:17 am
if you're completely out of touch with the american people if you are so arrogant to spend this amount of money it's not going to get you very far the democratic party which is party of billionaires and corporatists and and large banks and what have you joe biden being that a credit card or banking candidate they like don't like their their followers their voters to notice because they try to present themselves as the party of the people obviously they're not but so they would probably like to keep that under wraps and while joe biden is excited to have these wallets now the poor ng money into his campaign it's difficult to say why according to the mother reports russia spent an unbelievable $100000.00 on online ads remember in tom styles weld that was enough to buy trump presidency his hundreds of millions of dollars didn't even get him a single delegate not even a nomination so either that's some one hell of
9:18 am
a money management skill or maybe just maybe someone's policies just aren't worth a penny some invisible mysterious russians who spent a $100000.00 on facebook ads of 2016 which somehow got the president elected well now we've got mike bloomberg who spent half a $1000000000.00 on ads that look at everybody going to spend that money and he could have paid donald trump to leave office not i think the president would he could have bought american samoa. long story succumb this disney has cut a popular character from its remake of moulin over me to concerns be put the details just awful. join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to get out of the world of politics sport i'm sure i'll see you then.
9:19 am
9:20 am
again with the craze of rebooting for additional cartoons continuing disney is back in the spotlight for giving. me too friendly make over. takes a look in her weekly diary. did. diary you know me i'm generally a patient understanding person but really there are only so many injustices one can suffer when the live action remake of everyone's childhood favorite sleeping beauty dropped i thought yeah i'll give her a chance imagine my shock when a war is awoken from her sleep not by prince philip no not you but by molestus and herself no harm come to you as.
9:21 am
a parent it was problematic because it didn't consent and maybe the prince wasn't how one true love a knife in the back of my childhood and then the time classic cinderella came and while it makes me so anxious just thinking about it but naively i still thought that disney could possibly destroy it well it turns out i was wrong just how many injustices in 100 minutes fosli the mice don't get to speak only they do is hang around waiting for the fairy godmother to turn up and turn them into coachmen i know what such my sis behavior i mean you're basically a little slaves. then prince charming got a very on regal dressing down and got renamed kit heaven forbid we have any magic romance of gallantry left in the world also you'd think that with 65 years to come up with a new name they'd have done it a bit better as
9:22 am
a side note not sure why prince charming gets a make over but it's still ok for cinderella to be stitched into a course. in the blue dress it was particularly tight when i was trying to dance i didn't have the capacity to breathe to support this is a callous and so i had to keep taking breaks and listening because that then a latin materialized flying carpet and a genie in a cave yes please i was still clinging to the hope that the cinderella saga is just a teething problem no now princess jasmine it always been a favorite of mine is such a bad ass sassy princess turning down these handsome princes left right and center but no that wasn't enough for disney they just have to make her a sultan you want to be sultan. has been preparing for this my whole life now i watched all that and i stayed silent but normal because now they've come for the jewel in the disney crown they've come from milan and her disney match.
9:23 am
i mean no one could possibly take issue with the shining the serious army captain could day i think particularly in the time of the me too movement having a commanding officer there is also the sexual love interest was very uncomfortable and we didn't think it was appropriate. who saw me not as an equal who respected her as a warrior who's not just one of these princes swarming around in his fancy costume but can actually fish with his bare hands. oh sorry who built a friendship founded on respect with before ok realized he quite liked are you telling me that the shine is being dicked i know your out but kid gets to stay home but no that wasn't enough for those brutes it disney you know the iconic scene where milan chops off her locks. poof gone bob i
9:24 am
know i mean i really i just don't know how much more i can take. i what he told you you're also counseled. loops spoiler a lot don't worry though still the little mom made. i'm sure disney's got some great plans to ruin those for children all around the world. there now or finally this hour a council in the u.k. has been accused of spreading transphobia over international women's day celebrations with more on the story his shiny and stashed. international women's day is coming up it's a day to mark the struggle for the right to vote and the fight for equal rights but this year the run up to march the 8th has been inadvertently embroiled in a trance rao certain council liverpool has been pressurised into removing flags being flown outside its town hall is simply red woman noun adult female and while
9:25 am
that might be the definition in the oxford english dictionary it's been deemed transphobia the flag you flying at the moment is a hostile trans phobic dog whistle recognizes a symbol and brand of one of britain's most outspoken and visible trans antagonists and the leader of a trans phobic hate group moments later the flags were removed but the council saying it didn't realize the controversial messaging they were being asked to display we have been made aware of a potential issue regarding the messaging on the flag and southport town halls and have taken them down we have a proud history of supporting l g b t q plus rights across the borough we continue to support all members of all communities and one it looked like international women's day had been cancelled later they decided to reinstate the celebration replacing the old flag with a different one we went to find out if people really find the statement on the flag offensive why would it be offensive if you like. just because you have
9:26 am
a flag that represents women and doesn't insult anyone else it just empowers women i think it's a woman. definition of it. i know it probably needs to. take a lot of political things to talk about a woman i don't think there should be a label and i don't think there should be a definition genders all religions or anything. the problem i have is with the word transfer i mean to the word for it means that one house or 3 or 2 would something i don't think that's necessarily the case and i don't think the word is being brandished a room as it was if you know 2. sets of other agendas well what a time to build on it seems like you can't celebrate anything without offending people or at least having opinions polls apart this is a very subjective a very relative issue it's an opinion based or you call it flag offensive on
9:27 am
a tweet because it use the dictionary definition of the problem when you give in because of anonymous or angry tweets when you give in you give that platform power nobody should be giving it power to any voice that is meant to silence for wrongful reasons and so we don't want to give those voices any more justification just because they don't like something because then it's going to cause everybody who wants to shut down a company shut down a cause or shut down any kind of truth or opinion that they don't agree with it's going to give them more power to continue to lambast in these defamatory slanderous remarks on twitter and social media which has been very very harmful to people we have now been entrenched in this culture of fear where everybody wants us to be afraid where we cannot say anything and what that does when there is such a pervasive culture of fear we're going to be labeled transpo record zina phobic or racist or homophobic or whatever it is. ok before we go remind of breaking news
9:28 am
