the british government's costly foreign aid program is labeled a waste of taxpayers' money as a new study claims of most of the cash sent abroad doesn't reach those. pushing up walls and tearing families apart is row continues to build separation barrier is leaving palestinians in gaza and the west bank i'm able to reunite with their relatives. and to watch what you say report on survey suggesting that americans feel politically correct correct and this has made the two are so hypersensitive a nation where people can't speak them by. the
line from moscow i'm you thanks for joining us concerns are rising in britain where prime minister david cameron's costly foreign aid program has come under fire for not helping the poor around the world a study by a center right think tank says that billions of tax payers money is being used as a tool to promote good image of the coalition government and my colleague bill dodd discussed a show without hazel or smith well let me give you three quite stark examples the first is the example of bush's eight ethiopia which totals three hundred million pounds evidence studies. it wasn't used to help people it was used by the ethiopian government she cements a corrupt hold on power the u.k.
government refutes that saying that the money doesn't even go through the government but according to human rights watch they say it does and this investigation showed that in fact supporters of the opposition weren't allowed to receive food or seeds or fertilizer which is what the aid was destined for a second example is in india a three hundred eighty eight million pound project aimed at improving indian schools the government here hailed as a huge success they said more children are going to school as a result of it but the indian government says that around seventy million pounds of it was either stolen or lost much of it was allocated to schools that didn't even exist and that some of it went to by cause for dignitaries officials in india again the u.k. government refutes that and nigeria thirdly one hundred million pound project improve again the quality of education in nigeria an independent report showed that actually the results of it had been not to improve the quality of education at all
and they awarded the project to nigeria their second lowest rating again the government here refutes that same report sources that only visited a handful of schools so it's a pretty damning indictment of what's happening to all this money. vance some of money how does exactly help the image or british politicians well of course the conservative party here in this country has an image of sort of stinginess and only wanting to help. a long way towards getting rid of an image like that it shows that politicians are magnanimous sort of call them season very generous this information does suggest that the government doesn't really care where the money goes or how it's administered or how effective it is it only cares that it seem to be giving this city the study is really quite critical isn't it does it suggest should stop helping communities abroad altogether i know it's not suggesting that it's just
suggesting that the money is allocated and administered much more efficiently of course this is all happening against a backdrop of austerity at home and many people are saying you know forget forget giving money abroad let's keep it here at home where it's really needed at the moment so here we're seeing we're duction same benefits even for very poor people we're seeing tax hikes we're seeing raids on particularly public sector pensions so a lot of people say keep this money at home don't give it don't give it abroad and the budget is continually increasing it's now going to be no point seven percent of gross national income and that equates to five hundred pounds a year for every household in a lot of people say you know we could do something here at home with that five hundred pounds hundreds of thousands have run it in gaza celebrating the anniversary of the fatah movement this was the first such a vent allowed by hamas since two thousand and eight seven which saw them i'll say
arrival from strip corners a major recent hamas celebration in the west by as the troop movements continue their efforts at reconciliation in their fight for palestinian statehood and political analyst and years in a near east and it's about time that the true groups put their differences aside. hamas will have to look in to two for the hand they are and for that we'll have to look into the hamas in the eye and both sides have to agree on only one thing we don't need more of the consolation talks we don't need more the consolation agreements because there were so many agreement signed between the two parties but not one of them has been honored or implemented one hundred cannot take over palestine and the concerns of netanyahu are baseless and groundless is the only israeli leader who has been giving support to hamas or not only to him that's what i do every extremist group on the palestinian side simply because he's dumping the palestinian moderates is dumping the leadership of president abbas he's dumping the poor political negotiations with the with the palestinians and he's carrying on his
own agenda of of increasing the number of jewish settlements in the west bank even though they are illegally they are illegal under international law because on his policies the set up every chance of reaching a two state solution between the palestinians and israelis if the israeli withdrawal from gaza was based on an agreement with the palestinian authority we have we would have seen a totally different middle east today as israel hampers attempts to see a fully fledged palestinian state come into existence by building barriers between the two science it's not just divided but family policy here has more for us. this is the everest crossing one of five land crossings between israel and gaza getting through here is tough you need the right permission and papers but this crossing does not just separate israel from gaza it also divides families who are trapped on either side of the border. these are the tears of a boy who hasn't seen his father in three years mohammed left gaza in search of
a better life for his family but what he found on the other side of the border was loneliness and despair and what he left behind destress and fear. i miss my father a lot and i want to see him i'm afraid a lot my father must come back here we must go and live with him but he can't come and we can't go. all they have now to remind him of him are photographs and the occasional phone call. loved me i can't live like this anymore i'm sick i'm having a nervous breakdown this happens when a man is very sad when he has a lot of pressure on his soul and heart. this family is just one of thousands torn apart by israel's separation see that makes it almost impossible to move between the west bank and gaza it was only after mohammed had moved that he found out his family could not follow because while he and one of his children have west bank
identity papers his wife and four other children don't for reasons unknown to them . it was a big surprise for me they told me there is a possibility of changing it so i sent the papers up until now they have the file but they refused to give permission for them to come i can't give up on my kids but i also want to give them a future. israel says the west bank is a closed military zone and it has the right to prevent people from entering it even those from gaza but palestinians have extensive family ties in both areas and the policy affects just about everyone and there are a number of policies that explicitly say that family separation is not a justification for being allowed to enter the west bank so even if there's no serious security claim against an individual even if there's no question that that mother is separated from her child that's not enough to justify a travel international law protects freedom of movement and israel itself has
recognized guards in the west bank as a single territorial unit but that's not enough to guarantee something people in the west of the world take for granted a couple from different cities wanting to get married or a father looking for work. the children miss him so much they hold his pictures and cry when they speak with him on the phone this is that it's not coming back and he says i can't i want to bring it all to the west bank who want to go and live with him it will be safer for the children and they have a better life ahead of the double that it's a choice no father should have to make to be separated from his family so he can provide for them or join them and together face a bleak future policy are to israel gaza. which is a statement of some could be an insult for someone else that's a view of political correctness that's appears to be taken hold in america where
some now say the phenomenon has gone too far oh she's more important investigates why a nation that prides itself on its freedom of speech has become so sensitive. america is a country that pioneers freedom of expression but is the rising tide of political correctness reigning in the right to say what you think like people do well to hold back to to to actually speak their mind it's almost as though you have a sort of a code to call them sometimes you want to call a spade a spade and sometimes you want to call it trouble according to risk news and poll the majority of citizens think the u.s. is overdosing on p.c. turning the land of the free into a nation of hyper sensitive sissies. were even corn chips can cause mass controversy in this ad a priest substituted to read zero for the eucharist the body of christ. the commercial was created for a possible super bowl broadcast but after an uproar among catholics frito lay

conservatives want to want to sanitize or plain vanilla history and art it's really about laziness we don't we don't want to trust people to look and examine to look at some. and then go beyond that said what does it mean or those times like what is the author trying to say when film critic roger ebert took to twitter to criticize the censorship he was criticized for simply writing the n word a federal jury will soon decide if a white people can use the n. word at work this as a white t.v. reporter is suing a fox news affiliate in philadelphia after being fired for using the n. word during a staff meeting white house chief of staff rahm emanuel has apologized he's apologized and of course the r word can also make you a glorified villain as was the keys when former chief of staff rahm emanuel privately called a group of liberals retards rahm emanuel and i think he has some decent and insensitive ways of being pale and as of. e.s.p.n.
sensitivity surrounding sex has become a touchy subject announcer ron franklin was fired for allegedly calling a female reporter sweet baby many say a political correctness has neutered the american language creating a super sensitive society incapable of laughing things off a p.c. employee that left more people biting their tongues for fear that freedom of expression may be more trouble than it's worth. artsy new york. coming up later in the program for you a splitter online hotkey. a look at the government i don't appreciate people hacking us social justice is real thing and so that something has to be done. we have the means to do it then we should do it all she's resident people in new york what they think about a notorious group of hackers who promise to return with a vengeance in twenty eight. and the french quarter is waiting to hear evidence

lebanese born businessman while on trial in a separate money laundering case and christoph chip editor of french were clearly express says that while dedications are being taken seriously hard proof has yet to be presented. it's true that libya under gadhafi must have generated lots of dirty money with the system in place and pulled cash into western countries look at the solution contribution to sarkozy's campaign fifteen million really the maximum presidential campaign expenditure allowed is twenty two million years fifty million that's more than double what so this left over money certainly didn't go towards the campaign but instead ended up in someone's pocket but trying to prove is needed as of now there is only a statement by one man on trial who's trying to blame someone else to shift the attention away from himself which carries no legal weight. and let's now take a quick look at some other stories from around the world venezuelan president says the charges could be sworn in by the supreme court at
a later date if he's not able to take the oath of office next week the news comes amid conflicting reports on his health he has severe respiratory complications following a lung infection called during his cancer treatment in cuba venezuela north says that if the president is unable to be present during his inauguration a new election must be announced within thirty days. nato has begun deploying surface to air missiles and troops on the turkish border with syria the bloc approved the reinforcements last month after encore requests of support from its allies nato claims the move it's purely defensive but some countries including russia say the deployment will only serve to escalate the syrian conflict and stoke tension in the region some also fear of foreign intervention is in the making. second to nobody that's how the puter ranks on the list of the world's most powerful people according to a leading u.s.
think tank because sort of fun says no person has consolidated more domestic and regional power. richard can explain. it was the international political think tank you racial group that came up with a list of the world's most powerful individuals with the russian president at the top of that list then they decided no they couldn't leave him there so they put mr nobody at the top of their list so why they would put in his second to mr well or mrs nobody according to this think tank into the foreign policy magazine that published the list authors explain that they left the top position empty because the modern world has no clear leader they said they also said that they based their choice of names on that list on the individual's ability to single handedly quote bring about change that significantly affect the lives and fortunes of large numbers of people with the russian president followed by u.s. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke you for the influence the organization has on the u.s. economy and by extension on the global economy german chancellor angela merkel for

u.s. human rights groups and even some officials are crying foul up to present a bill next ten days the military's authority. definitely detain terror suspects including americans without charge or trial the national defense authorization act of twentieth century it also allows for the notorious gone tunnel of a military prison to remain open despite the president's own pledge to shut down the facility. so americans fear they could now face prosecution for that he. used to i think gave him activities that my government seriously disapproves of one of those activities was supporting wiki leaks and you know in a science and also bradley manning as you probably are you know many people and our government have declared them a terrorist group and julian assange. is extremely scary and certainly could be used against their people like me and my international team there seems to be no backbone either in the administration or in congress to actually stand by civil liberties and the constitution and basic human rights
people's lives are being used as a political football and to really sort of hold up this false and senate this head in my power and political realisation that it's no longer operable or what mainstream media has they're not reporting real news and critical news so the general public is really has no idea i just how serious this assault on our liberties so you more people are if they actually knew but they're not getting that news. the notorious hacktivist group anonymous has promised to shake up the internet and the new it was also about tonks motivated by social and but it's going to she's going to see america's web producer andrew blake says they have case finally managed to gain some good press and twenty twelve people with this group or who are aligning with this group are doing stuff where. the majority of people at least in our society might actually accept with what they're doing we saw that just last month after the newtown shooting when the westboro baptist church said look
we're going to go over to connecticut and we're going to protest the morial services and anonymous pretty much sent out a call to arms of mediately they were anonymous from all over the country who actually traveled to newtown and were not just on the internet but they're in real life trying to stake out members of the westboro baptist church so they can alert other people of where they're going to be how they're planning protesting of what they were going to do to demonstrate a lot of people don't realize it because a lot of people think these are just some nerdy computer half truths that are hiding behind screens in the united states who only care about you know the walls if it where but no actually there are you know thousands upon thousands of people spread out over the course the entire world who are making sure that people still have open access to information that people are safe that people can can figure out how to get by these hardships when government regimes step in and try to censor the internet or you know like we saw in gaza kill innocent civilians. very old
resident people they knew how they feel about these so-called hacks this. the hacking collective anonymous issued a statement warning the world to expect them in two thousand and thirteen is that a good thing this week let's talk about that it is an all course of business that they interfere with they can write their congressman they can vote. i work for the government i don't appreciate people hacking us we've got people's personal information that has to be protected that these people they decided hey i want to take that now that's their information because they've decided to take the law into their own hands this is ok yes definitely keep on going why are they important in the world today well because to bring
a certain information to the public. because of the activities social injustice is real thing and so something has to be done if you like if we have the means to do it then we should do it what about the fact that they do it anonymously they don't show their face and their name do you think that they have to because what they're doing is illegal or do you think they should show their names and faces well i think showing their names and faces would just block them out and blacklist them and stamp amount so i think that's the reason why they had to be anonymous i think they're meddling kids legally should not be doing what they're doing definitely but so do we just let governments and corporations do whatever they want unchecked no not unchecked but do it legally through the law and follow the guidelines that are set before us for example with the united states were built on the constitution and that's how we have to follow the law through that i'm against anything illegal just because i like to follow rules and i don't want to be a put in jail or i wouldn't want to be put in jail even if it does mean sticking
out for other people i think it's a good thing they should continue to do what they're doing what about the people who say that they're just meddling kids. well i think a lot of people or ignorant to the reason that they're protesting. i think what they say makes a lot of sense and i think people need to do more research because to understand exactly what the true purpose is love them or hate them anonymous has promised to put on a good show for twenty thirteen we'll just have to wait to see if they live up to that promise. it takes a sideways look at the world's financial headlines and the kaiser report that's coming your way just a couple of minutes. ron
paul has rejected the national rifle association safety plan and by safety plan the enery proposes basically turning every school in america into a prison camp so on this one ron paul i'm with you in the wake of the tragic events at sandy hook elementary and every vice president wayne la pierre called on congress to immediately appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every school so yeah what is the solution to isolated incidents of extreme violence make every child live their entire school life at gun point before putting armed guards in schools maybe we should take a look at the fact that more than twenty five percent of american kids are on medication and that's just the kids altering their mental state legally mom is
working two jobs so she isn't around dad is a wall and the t.v. who's the new parent shows kids nothing but images glorify violence revenge and torture when someone is getting harassed every day at school and maybe getting harassed at home they feel totally alone and they see no future and no escape from the hell that they're in they are going to take drastic measures to get out of it you know in the fifty's sixty's and seventy's there were still plenty of guns and there were no armed officers in schools but there were no shootings society change and school violence erupted societies what needs to change to call them things back down but that's just my opinion. the a. welcome to the kaiser report on max kaiser take you out there no not you
