2:10 pm
discrimination. could that be an advantage for turkey the country is confident its bid can stand on its own turkey's footballing culture its modern stadia and even president add to one's passion for the game positives after three unsuccessful bids this one is meant to click. around everyone can see we're ready to host the iraqis we love football we deserve to be the host of. football's been played in turkey five or one hundred years it's part of our lives here. but financial instability and the drop of the lira could put turkey's bid on potential profits in jeopardy. you wait for europe's football governing body has sent out mixed signals they have set clear requirements including on matters such as human rights and freedom of expression on the other hand you a fixed specs huge tax breaks from the hosts. its executive committee is made up
2:11 pm
of twenty members. of the german and turkish representatives vote one member netherlands michelle obama prague has publicly thrown his support behind turkey. in case of a stalemate you wait for president alexandre schaeffer in will break the tie something he will lean towards germany as it stands it's all up in the air the only certainty the bid for euro two thousand and twenty four is going to be a close race. and for more let's go straight to me always good to have you sports correspondent jonathan crane is standing by he's outside the you if i had quote is something both sides have a lot going for them but they also down sides for example germany are accused of buying the world cup in two thousand and six a scandal that has refused to go away when you have a bearing on the result you think. yes you mentioned that stand on retreat still

2:13 pm
a sticky capable of pushing for a launch event. when you mention it here it really is struggling and we've already seen some big infrastructure projects can so that will raise some alarm bells because a lot of the transport links still need to be put in place ahead of the tournament as also concerns about whether there would be enough accommodation for people and also the stadiums to need to be rebuilt and the capacity for the space is some three hundred thousand down in the german one throughout the whole tournament now turkey as try to ease some of those concerns by promising you a fast and a very generous tax breaks also promising use of the stadiums rent free we know how important the finances off maybe on paper the turkish state could be financially more attractive and also a point to russia which of course hosted the twenty eighteen world cup another international pariah if you like and they'll say well if russia can do it. and
2:14 pm
enjoy them very briefly why you backing to get the nod. well if you'd asked me this eighteen months ago when the bits were fast amounts i definitely would have said jeremy but i think we're missing a few developments recently that have maybe made the german base a big concerns there i think very supportive come to light i would still say germany are the stronger favorites to win this space but we know it's still an edge off in korean and beyond thank you very much for that update. and we bring you live coverage as a result comes out in neon in switzerland that's been on being the opposite with some other stories making news around the wild clashes have erupted between and to india protesters and police in indian controlled kashmir protesters threw stones while police fired tear gas and shotgun tenets of the protesters are angry about the death of a young man killed by indian troops last week rebel groups in indian controlled kashmir have been fighting for independence or with pakistan since one thousand eight hundred. police in slovakia have detained suspects in the killing of

2:17 pm
submitting them to the committee as part of that defense. in a lengthy question and answer session president trump was pressed by reporters to say if he would consider withdrawing kavanagh's nomination the republican senators have delayed this for weeks now. they giving the women a major chance to speak now it's possible i'll hear that and i'll say hey i'm changing my mind that is possible but they're going to have a big shot at speaking a making their case and you know what i could be persuaded also hate to admit it was chump describe senate democrats calling for capital to be withdrawn as obstructionists taking part in what he called a con job something that a group leader in the senate strenuously denies this isn't a democratic smear job as the leader so callously and disrespectfully suggested this is a republican rush job and i might add
2:18 pm
a rush job to avoid getting to the truth. but guiding the extraordinary hearing president champ said i think it's going to be a very very important day in the history of our country and i want to thank you all sir looting is used to young men who serve that young men young to thank you very much nothing to say. no more to say fanaa. christine lacy ford will be feste to give her testimony followed by pat kavanaugh soon after. jail in football around the bundesliga wrapped up its midweek slate of matches with barossa dortmund looking to jump from fourth to second place in the standings the host of nuremberg who didn't resent much of a challenge. dortmund was in a festive mood and even coach lucianne far was all smiles and was expecting to
2:19 pm
extend its perfect home record against newly promoted nuremberg. and accordingly it took dortmund just nine minutes to open the scoring through the broom larsson. sumeet flicks the first from provider christian the second to finish off the move and give dortmund an early lead. which marco royce should have doubled a minute later only to be denied by norm bird's fabienne brave low. but shortly after the half hour mark dortmund's captain made up for his wasted chance. to milk a well deserved lead coming through royce whose shot took a slight deflection through the onrushing georg mark reiter. in the second half the already one sided affair became even more humiliating for the visitors first but he made it three after forty nine minutes the on loan player from rail madrid scoring on his bundesliga debut peripherial were playing cat and mouse with norm burke
2:20 pm
markel royce with his second of the evening making it for now. are this point the dortmund players were taking turns or trying to score against their hapless opposition not well a conjurer make it five nil after seventy four minutes. but it wasn't over yet jaden central scoring the six the very thing that he later turned provider for yulia on vital grounded off the scoring at seven dortmund's biggest bundesliga win in more than thirty years. one of the jurors went on as you can see she is in dalton cause yeah i like supporting winning teams winning team you know what are you and you have business news indeed i do and rita sadly they're not too good to the world trade organization is downgrading its global trade forecast for the next two years and that's thanks in part to the simmering trade conflicts around the globe the w t o expects world trade to expand by three point nine percent this year
2:21 pm
and around three point seven percent in twenty nineteen and that's down half a percent from previous forecasts in a statement the w t o's cited anti free trade measures which are prompting the outlook evidently a critique of u.s. president on its trumps trade policies. well italy's minister of economy and finance giovanni to the is expected to present his budget plan for twenty nine thousand later today and the rest of the eurozone will be listening carefully because italy's clinician government is determined to fulfill expensive campaign promises from a basic income for poor people to a lower retirement age that might please voters but how to reconcile a generous tax and welfare program with e.u. budget discipline rules let alone the financial stability of the blocs third largest economy. italy's anti establishment government has promised two major
2:22 pm
economic reforms. the first is a basic income for unemployed people and those in low wage jobs the second is a flat tax of fifteen to twenty percent for individuals and companies the price tag of the plan about ninety billion dollars a cost the european union believes the country cannot afford to bare its warning that ballooning debt could destabilize the entire eurozone economy so just how large are italy's borrowings. let's take a look. the country owes almost two point seven trillion dollars that's the equivalent of one hundred thirty two percent of total economic output the highest in the eurozone after greece this unemployment remains stubbornly high one in ten people are work among young people it's closer to one in
2:23 pm
three. faced with this economic reality italy's government faces a tough balancing act between delivering on its promises and reassuring investors that its spending isn't out of control. so what is still facially financial system and ultimately for the euro zone let's ask see it from the brussels based economic think tank bruegel good to have you with us. of course it's always great when politicians try to fulfill they can pay promises but can italy afford an expensive welfare program. i think that's exactly the point this government is defined to be a populist government because it has been promising something in the order of magnitude of one hundred billion euros worth of electoral promises with tax reduction on the universal basic income that would be six seven percentage points
2:24 pm
of g.d.p. so while it is laudable the government wants to fulfill its promises it has to reckon with. economic reality and that's what that's what's at stake today with the presentation of the of the budget i mean a lot of analysts and you just touched on it a worried about italy's budget deficit that would balloon out of control well last year it was below the used target how much wiggle room is there given that other members including germany will remember that in the past also violated that famous three percent of g.d.p. rule. i think the three percent rule or the three percent number is misleading in this setting in the sense that fiscal rules european fiscal rules are more complex. than this and when they are designed in a way that when you are in a phase of fiscal expansion you would want a country especially
2:25 pm
a country like italy the house high debt to try to reduce their deficit in order to bring down their debt and create wiggle room for when the next recession hits so yes we have that three percent really an upper limit but here it is should be aiming at something much lower the key target the financial markets are looking at is more in the order of magnitude of two percent and this two percent comes from the fact that it would mean that given g.d.p. growth italy would still be on a debt reduction path. and this year tariffs you know they're speaking to us here in europe temperatures are dropping after a scorching summer time then to wrap up in your favorite woolly garments but what does a drought in australia have to do with the cost of your winter wardrobe quite a lot as it turns out. hungry lambs as a dried stricken farm in the eastern state of new south wales. astray produces
2:26 pm
ninety percent of the world's merino wool exports. but after one of the driest seasons on record many sheep farmers are struggling to keep their flocks alive what at the moment were about thirty eight forty thousand balls last this form of the what we had last week so that's really awful so weak that we've lost so far already for from this trail. to drop in production comes at a time when global demand for not full fibers is surging at this well auction instead me the bids are coming in fast and strong. well it's certainly a great spark in demand at the moment and i guess we have to go right back to the consumer who's now you know walking into the shop and mourning and asking for war looking for a natural fathers and the fashion for them i would use is certainly has a lot of wool incorporating it with farmers losing sheep to drives the astray and
