in support alex ferguson returns to old trafford for the first time since having emergency brain surgery details coming up with. francis has settled a seventy year old dispute with china he's agreed to recognize seven bishops who were appointed without his approval pope francis says he hopes a deal will heal rooms of the past and bring about full catholic unity in china the country has some ten million catholics. this is the end of a process that's really the beginning it's also important to remember that while it's come to fruition under pope francis if pope benedict have a letter to chinese catholics in two thousand and seven he was working for the same goal. john paul the second had made legitimate a number of illegitimately ordained bishops so this this is really the work of
11:06 am
thirty years and three pontificates the objective of the accord is not political but it's pastoral and. who's in the chinese city of chengdu for as scott as we heard this has been in the works for a long time what does this recognition mean for chinese catholics. well right now what it means is as we heard from greg burke there you know this has been a process of going on this specific negotiations if you will has been going on for some thirty years the division between the vatican and the chinese government has been nearly seventy years so what's going to impact the catholic community here right now it's actually kind of a two fold question because you have a catholic community that is recognized as kind of authorized by the chinese government to bear the ones who appointed the seven bishops that are now being recognized by the vatican that was the big division before there's an underground catholic community here in china now they will be able to hopefully integrate and that's possibly what's going to happen down the line there's some criticism from
11:07 am
that community though because they have worked very hard with the vatican being recognized by the vatican but being underground so that there's been some people have come out and said they feel as though they've been kind of you know negotiated away from because they've been doing this they've been having these churches underground for decades and now all of a sudden there's some some between the vatican and china so where are they going to be in this process of that's where the criticism is coming from but right now it is progress it is a breakthrough but there's still many more steps to come so precisely what still needs to be done between the vatican and china's government. well right now the very next step that i'm sure most people are concerned on and focused in that is what happens moving forward ok so the seven bishops have now been recognized by the vatican they're appointed by the chinese government so what happens moving forward on both sides vatican and the chinese government have been very vague about how the process is going to move forward these bishops are appointed by the chinese government by the chinese communist party and then now
11:08 am
recognized by the vatican what's going to happen to the bishops moving forward that's the big question then then also you know what's going to happen with a visit from the pope that's something that's very important to catholic communities right around the world and that is a visit from the pope himself is that in the works is that something that's going to be negotiated down the lines we've got the steps to go through but again as we see this is you know a provisional agreement even with that it is a breakthrough because these seven bishops are now being recognized by the vatican we thank you for that and i first in chengdu. a chinese hospital ship has docked in crisis hits venezuela it will treat people for the next week before continuing an eleven nation tour last month the u.s. sent a similar ship to neighboring county that is when i was experiencing a deepening economic crisis which has led to a shortage of food and medicine and protests against a taheri living conditions continue people blocked roads in the southern city of san cristobal in the city of santa quest about on friday they're angry at petrol

11:10 am
these are quite necessary measures to just sort out the bigger problem it's worth pointing out that the series of measures which the government aborted most of the single method as a whole range of measures tax measures and other issues of a board in progressively less say so for example this month in september price of petrol prices are going to be increased the new wage comes into effect for public sector workers and so on when you pension prices come in so the these are measures which people are getting used to. but it's taken later time obviously to understand that and get used to them. and this is normal venezuela is a very patient people in this respect it's worth pointing out that the vast majority of venezuelans are very very rightly against the u.s. led sanctions against the country venezuelans generally understand that these sanctions are not helping the economic crisis at all or they're not helping any solution towards the economic problems which the country is facing and therefore any escalation in these sanctions which is what we're expecting to see will we mean

of quebec. the u.k.'s main opposition party is warning it will call for a general election if the government spreads it deal falls through labor's leader jeremy corbyn says he'll challenge prime minister theresa may on any deal made with the european union on friday may said talks with the e.u. had reached an impasse and call for the brand to come up with a viable counter proposal britain is usually of the e.u. in march we will challenge this government on whatever deal it brings back all our six tests on jobs on living standards all environmental protection and protection of those jobs and the ability over the incoming labor government doing first and intervene in the economy it's a pretty decent wages jobs and full employment. and if this government can't deliver simply series of juries are. the best way to circle this
11:26 am
is why having a general election. the us cable giant comcast has bid rupert murdoch's fox in a blind auction for u.k. broadcaster sky comcast offer puts the value of sky around forty billion dollars is a big blow for fox owner rupert murdoch who wanted to take over the sixty one percent of sky it doesn't already own sky is one of europe's most profitable broadcasters with twenty three million subscribers in the u.k. with rights to premier league football and an exclusive deal to show h.b.o.'s entire catalogue include. the hugely popular game of thrones series speak to tara jackson about this she's a personal and business finance specialist she joins us via skype from friday's fredericksburg virginia thank you very much for being with us tara so why is comcast bad for sky such a big deal why does it matter so much it meant
11:27 am
a great deal because comcast. fox they're trying to get the market share back with from all the giants from netflix amazon taking with the live streaming and so they're noticing there's a big hit in their viewership in their customer base so in order to be able to compete with those they have to move international so this merger with sky is definitely going to help them get back on the playing field and a lot of companies wanted to buy sky looting rupert mark murdoch's fox how is comcast able to beat the competition what was in its advantage. their advantage of they had a. difficult did for that thirty nine billion dollars or that now is twenty two dollars per share but that thirty three point nine billion dollars more than what fox murdoch actually offered and so they were very very very motivated to get when this bid and they want it and it's going to be
11:28 am
a big they're going to be the largest international service provider for cable and . where does this leave rupert murdoch's fox. well rupert really wanted to when they did with the disney deal both he wanted to give one hundred percent of sky to the disney but that is well but unfortunately he wasn't able to do this with this when our peers is still up in the air because the shareholders still have to vote on it so hopefully the shareholders will say yes we want the you know the thirty nine point of the three point thirty nine billion dollars glad that they could also say no we don't want to do this and go with fox but i think they're going to go with comcast sky is one of europe's most profitable t.v. companies already what's going to change for viewers. well there are going to be be able to get the market share and there's no resources of the digital services especially with all the money that's being poured into it going into the united
11:29 am
states it's markets within that so it's going to be a win win for the viewership internationally as well as with the united states and so other presidents i'm sure with but other major mergers within that so it now allows them to compete with the likes of amazon net flix and apple thank you very much tyra for speaking to us about this our jackson he's a financial expert joining us from fredericksburg. a film which compares donald trump's rise to power to adolf hitler as amazing documentary from michael moore is provoking all sorts of opinions faran night eleven nine is a sequel to his movie fahrenheit nine eleven about president george w. bush from new york his gave it any sound over the story. he's one of america's most popular documentary makers and he's also one of the most polarizing focusing his lens on everyone from george w. bush now watch this drive from my dad to the national rifle association to
11:30 am
the u.s. health care system it was only a matter of time before michael moore set his sights on america's polarizing president donald trump. did this in his latest movie fahrenheit eleven nine michael moore examines the reasons why trump one which seemed at first like an unlikely race to the presidency and most controversially at one point compares his rise to that of adolf hitler in germany in the one thirty's richard penus a professor of film studies at columbia university he recently hosted a q. and a with more on the new movie he thinks the comparison is fair here and read statements that are terrifying you know coming from the president or some of his underlings it's him. porton to realize i think that fascism is one thing and like every other system it evolves so i think fascism of the one nine hundred thirty s. would not be fascism in the twenty first century it will have its own
11:31 am
characteristics the movie is wide ranging in scope using examples as diverse as the parkland school shooting to the polluted water crisis in his hometown flint michigan to get the point across a scattergun approach that he's been criticised for in his past films one of the things about michael's films that there's a certain or shocks quality you know gee i'm just a guy who has a camera and i'm going out there whatever after a while they began to i think where at least on me in terms of a political tool there's less of that here so i think you really shows what he wanted to film very very closely and i think the sequences are are very well constructed michael moore says he intends fahrenheit eleven nine to be a wake up call to america showing people not only how donald trump got into office but how they can take him out but with so many people having already made up their mind about this proudly liberal filmmaker some argue all he's doing is preaching to
