deeper into a hole that by the time of the election next april may june when they have the next election for president he may really regret having gone the neoliberal route any possibility that the poverty created by new liberalism in the ongoing austerity may mark a return to the sort of extreme violence advocated by nelson mandela where yes now mandela very specifically when he turned from the nonviolent mass struggle in the early sixty's was directing targeted sabotage against the facilities of oppression what we've seen since the roughly fifteen twenty years rising township protests where unfortunately many of the social activists in their communities have been so frustrated they've not only blockaded roads burned tires but they've taken on municipal buildings even burning libraries and schools these are tactics and they appear very violent and they appear that the townships are burning but i think actually the real danger to the system will come when they link up and develop a bigger political agenda we'll see if that happens on the far left the economic

welcome back fashion as always arguably being political welsh n l gucci and boss prove their right wing grit jewels why sell broader and westwood have signalled and the imperialism and while old fashion except the tour finds itself under scrutiny over labor practices this week's london fashion week contends with a britain about to depending on your brakes a dirty expand into the wider world or retreat into homespun isolationism joining me now is james andrea rhodes who was dressed everyone from princess diana and jackie onassis to elizabeth taylor and freddie mercury she opened this year's london fashion week festival on the twenty second of february so ana thank so much for coming on and so i first of all here just tell me about the festival which is slightly separate a lot of fashion well i think it's to give a lovely continuation no i mean everyone does the fashion way to go global and then everyone rushes office to give it give us a little more atmosphere here in london i think it's a great idea ok well i just said they're the couture no one could insult after bad
3:05 pm
labor practices thanks to the seamstress unions and so on can mass fashion really ever be good for worker rights alone. the environment it's a very difficult subject because if you're talking about mass fashion you're always going to be talking about cutting costs and how you make things less expensive i mean i think we'll wind we've always all got to think about how we can make out clothes last longer not always because of what's happening to the atmosphere but why should we always have to have new new he's been saying things like this arguably for maybe not quite as long as prince charles has been saying similar things that people stream which have that initiative happen before the run of blows a disaster among the dish implicating a prime or madeleine mango monsoon wal-mart which killed or injured three thousand six on. i mean i went over there with people tree and interviewed some of the people who'd actually seen in that building it was quite terrifying really that
3:06 pm
whole whole experience i mean i don't know what we can do about it because people are still going to want to buy this economic uprise one sustainable but for mass fashion that could be it could destroy itself what do you think about with bricks at me spell. challenging times for fashion coming from the sky i can't bear to think about it i did not vote for breakfast i kept hoping that they'd say well we made a mistake let's do another vote in the meantime that's what's happened then we'll have to wait and see what happens i mean what does it mean for london fashion designers or fashion designers or the rest don't yet know do way i mean we're all going to continue to decide it's possible that it's going to be more difficult for those of us the going to show in italy or from us and it might be a bit easier if you're sharing in the rest of the world but i really don't feel we can predict anything we have to now wait and see what really does happen but it could be a bright or is johnson that future of london beijing shanghai i don't have
3:07 pm
a choice anyway i do really i mean considering there was a two old british people you know voted out seven there's already overbroad. but i mean we we all were all going to pick deciding where all going to kick designing somehow and i do think this country attracts talent breeds talent and we have wonderful art colleges that i think that people are still going to come here and we're just going to have to wait and see what really happens in reality even if it could be a russian plot the backs of referendum or i know you said in the past about whether the russians got trump elected. well it might be mostly because you've reported he got a bust of putin let me put it oh i do i've got a bill is passed in fact i did a show in russia and one of my russian friends came up and gave me. this wonderful monte boggs uprooted and we painted him up and he's so he's golden all sorts of bright colors and he sits in my studio he's very happy there he doesn't live that
3:08 pm
has not yet. fashion associates with politics i mean like i said in the intro there about how when chanelle bounce iago's about fascism in spain the real seller was a bit of the left in paris. was as it were the left what is it about fashion and well i mean at the moment in the fashion textile museum that i founded we've just opened an exhibition on statement t. shirts so we've got wonderful vivienne westwood one mommy breasts and all the different statements so i think you've got the fashion is of course exactly and you're going to have them making less statements and that's what some people want to wear and then i've got mine that are a different kind of statement i wear and i should just that when it comes to groans and the cost of training in fashion any concerns you've heard about increasing cost
3:09 pm
putting people off from entering the fashion world given that britain is famous also for working class fashion designers i think this is going to be room for everyone i mean i just think that what's going to really happen is instead of things being bought fashion you're going to find that there might be more and more small things in communities one hopes that instead of always being focused on london or scotland or island you're going to have small individual communities that are necessarily making both fashion but making a step this statement of their own i think that's a possibility too even the things are so cheap now in the street arguably if you can just for inflation you can buy and throw away. so i find it all terribly sad thinking that people will buy and throw away i hope it will be more like bar i get tired of it every work or pass it on them is on the roads thank you pleasure.
3:10 pm
well it certainly fashionable in nato nations now to express just pray at the state of international relations the doomsday clock is now closer to nuclear armageddon than it's ever been arguably in part because donald trump's finger is poised over the red button that not only controls billions of dollars of u.s. nuclear weaponry but britons as well sixty years ago today the campaign for nuclear disarmament was founded and the images of arguments put forth in its early years are arguably just as relevant as they were then deputy editor sebastian packer went to speak to see in these general secretary kate hudson and artist peter kennedy who has been working with the campaign for nuclear disarmament for nearly forty years we know. about nuclear weapons because really in hiroshima suffering the horror of. we've got to imagine the into our own environment we've got to imagine it as what could happen across the world unless we do something about it.
3:11 pm
well we say that c.n.d. is one of britain's most enduring mass movements it was founded in one nine hundred fifty eight in the midst of absolutely enormous public concern about nuclear weapons so the first demonstration took place in one nine hundred fifty eight the first mass meeting which founded c.n.d. took place on the seventeenth of february nine hundred fifty eight so sixty years ago today the first meeting had about five thousand people attending it and from then on from strength to strength hundreds of thousands of people became. involved over the next few years demonstrations protests protests and basis sit downs in westminster you name it that was taking place i saw it working you see andy i think it was seventy nine and it was when cruise missiles it was announced that
3:12 pm
they were going to come to greenham common and most were in a couple. went to see andy and this was in seventy nine they were a very small organization i remember time in a room i think you know. and. everyone was just about. people just sitting on the floor of a port case when i was tiny as an artist i want i don't want to sit in my studio you know waiting for the muse to descend i wanted to actually involved in things so the first one i did was the broken mist with the c.n.d. symbol and they were made very crudely i actually went to hamlet which is the big toy shop and they seem to have a guided missile department for ten year olds and so i bought some plastic missiles and then smash them up with a hammer and then photograph them so the actual original. crew which i live and then that was used by cindy. posters at the time.
3:13 pm
we had the big marches in the beginning of the eighty's because suddenly cindy escalated it suddenly had a quarter of a million members. norma's demonstrations. cruise missiles. in the arrival of cruise missiles was the turning point. for sandy in terms of people's involvement today our government saying that they wanted to replace trident nuclear weapons system our nuclear weapon system vos costs massive popular opposition to that they overwhelm. majority of people would rather spend that money on their own health on social care education jobs homes and so on rather than spending it on weapons of mass destruction it was very shocking for everyone i think to see last week the report that a homeless person who'd died just in the proximity of the houses of parliament from
3:14 pm
cold sleeping rough in the street there's no there's no rational explanation i think for all wouldn't really decent people which is the overwhelming majority of people here and elsewhere it's just inconceivable that people would choose people in power would choose to spend our heart of taxpayers' money on weapons of mass destruction that can kill millions of people rather than spending it on ensuring people's needs are met if they put people in the twenty first century dari on the streets of london close to parliament it's it's just unbelievable we need media reorientation of our national priorities and i believe the people as a whole the majority of the people share those common values with us this is a normal human concern value it's the government that's out of step it's the political elite that's out of step the government didn't actually want anyone to
3:15 pm
see the realities of it they didn't want nuclear weapons to be connected to the horrors of hiroshima which. iran knew about where they were they wanted to sort of make the nuclear weapons were possible they were. thinking of something that's. something that's completely. turned into something that's everyday that's what i've always been from the town to with this that's what cindy is trying to counter to this sense that we can live with these things and it's quite so have them. and we know it isn't. going to explode all over the. program with a couple years ago. you know we still got we've got this. madness of the word spending. two hundred thirty billion on this reconditioning trident.
3:16 pm
each each missiles equal to thirty russia's i mean the madness of nuclear weapons gets more and more intense now with trump saying that we're going to make use of nuclear weapons and joking about the sizes but in all this you know you just can't believe it because nuclear weapons a minute they start going to blow up the world and they're in the hands of complete crazy weather and all crazy the power hungry maniacs. and so the imagery that i started by making in the eighty's is still as relevant and it's good that it's being used again but it's horrific needs to be used again it's a shame in many ways that we still have to use his image and new images against us that we still have to carry on sixty years on but the dangers are there the dangers to regain increasing and becoming greater so we will continue to work with peter
3:17 pm
and to work with the hundreds of thousands of other really dedicated people across britain our partners internationally will carry on working together until nuclear weapons are finally abolished. one of britain's greatest artist peter cannot and c.n.d. general secretary kate hudson talking to going on the ground deputy had just passed a packet and that's it for the show we're back on monday when we go to iraq to save the children office to ask about u.k. u.s. airstrikes are affecting their humanitarian work today jill that he doesn't actually do we'll see on monday one hundred five years to the day suffragettes fighting for female equality form the house of u.k. charts or david lloyd george. in twenty forty. no bloody revolution of youtube clips the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful for the protests to be increasingly violent
3:18 pm
revolution is always spontaneous or is it just the lawyer i mean your lists book video dreaming the neighborly as i do spelling needle the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty fourteen. those who took the lead invested over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. place. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last bang turn. to caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again
3:19 pm
still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters my mind gets consumed with the death of this one quite different person i speak to you now because there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker. was sceptical of the full tilt of the spin. i did not bid it up for. the cult. now.
3:20 pm

3:21 pm

3:22 pm
because meddling is not chargeable offense though i bet good money at three will be the thirteen nationals and three entities have been indicted for first and foremost conspiracy to defraud the united states one of the main defendants is the st petersburg based internet research agency and their alleged goal was to sow discord in the u.s. political system namely the two thousand and sixteen presidential election funnily enough a catering company can also be found on the list of the accused apparently they were used at least partially to fund the whole scheme meanwhile the allegations have not been left on the answered with the russian foreign ministry spokesperson calling them absurd tens out there with thirteen of them according to the u.s. justice department fifteen people were meddling in the u.s. election against the billion dollar budgets of the intelligence agencies against the intelligence counted teligent against the state of the art technologies upset yes but this is america's most political reality by the way why thirty apparently that's the only number with bad associations and that's that only hope the parties
3:23 pm
in question are said to formulate a plan to bolster donald trump and disparage hillary clinton using methods ranging from organizing political rallies to posing as grassroots groups but some of the tactics listed are questionable and one instance russians are said to have fun of the construction of a cage aboard a flatbed truck and then to have paid someone to wear a costume portraying clinton in a prison uniform to sit in it defense also allegedly purchased advertisements on facebook to promote our. titled support hillary save american muslims not sure how that fits in with the pro trump anti hillary agenda and let's not forget efforts claim to have been made on social media where the russians are meant to abuse fake identities to push divisive hashtags and topics according to the document the fake accounts became the means to reach quote significant numbers of americans however when platforms like facebook and twitter were grilled about what part their companies may have played in the alleged meddling they testified that the influence was minimal. we determined that the number of accounts we could link to
3:24 pm
russia and that we're tweeting election related content was comparatively small. aggregate of these ads and posts were a very small fraction of the overall content on facebook but any amount is too much . these videos mostly had low view counts. and it looks like at the end of the day all of those efforts were in vain at least according to the u.s. stopper to attorney general there is no one to give
3:25 pm
a shit in the indictment that the charge conduct alter the outcome of the twenty sixteen election now this development came out of nowhere and something worth noting is that all the accused are private individuals and companies the indictment is silent when it comes to trump kremlin collusion the goal of the whole investigation president trump reacted by tweeting that his campaign did nothing wrong and by doubling down on accusations that russia started its alleged anti us campaign in twenty fourteen he added that it was before he announced his presidential bid in a separate statement he called on bipartisan unity claiming that discord serves the goals of actors like russia we discuss the indictment with a number of experts and they suggest the timing of the documents release no coincidence. is it beneficial for them all enough fridays and people have always thought that on a friday when this is done it'll absorb as much of the heat as possible
3:26 pm
but isn't that interesting i ask the question we had a shooting where the f.b.i. apparently and other law enforcement agencies were told repeatedly that this young man is exhibiting behavior which most probably is dangerous. one can only suspect whether that the idea that the indictment was released today to take pressure off the f.b.i. i mean these indictments of course are prepared. took a long time to prepare it could have been ready to go. for some time they could have held it there's no evidence for me to say that but i wouldn't rule that out i mean it's an interesting thought but they were going to maybe do it next monday and they pushed it up. indictments come as the f.b.i. is and the heavy criticism for wednesday's deadly school shooting in florida that's after the beer admitted it failed to react to pry
3:27 pm
a tip offs on the danger posed by the gunman who killed seventeen people florida's governor has called on the f.b.i. director to resign over the threat of failure the f.b.i. says failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn't going to cause it and apology will never bring the seventeen floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain the families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen and apology will never give them the answers they desperately need the f.b.i. director needs to resign earlier the law enforcement authorities admitted over the last few years they have had scores of calls regarding the killer. we have covered at the broward sheriff's office that we got approximately twenty calls for service over the last two years regarding the killer the f.b.i. has a chairman the protocol was not. the information was not provided. and
3:28 pm
no further investigation was conducted. in particular the f.b.i. had been given information about the attack because gun ownership and his social media presence his desire to kill people erratic behavior and potential to conduct a school shooting also flags one of those who actually won the security service about the suspect has spoken about what led him to raise the alarm september twenty fourth two thousand and seventeen i sent a screenshot of a comment on one of my videos you know this comment said i'm going to be a professional school shooter and i knew that i couldn't just ignore that i had to report but report it to you. course they remove the comment and then i tried to email it so that. the shooting in part in florida caught on wednesday when
3:29 pm
a former student fatally shot seventeen people and injured some dozen more a nineteen year old suspect was detained by police on the day of the atrocity his case and how the f.b.i. failed to recognize the threat posed by him is now being investigated. u.s. attorney general just sessions is now calling for an immediate review of the f.b.i. and the department of justice florida's not the first at the time that could potentially have been avoided had more attention being paid as a kind of more print explains. nicholas cruz isn't the only mass killer to be on the radar screen of the f.b.i. before conducting their crime all marmot teen who shot up the post nightclub killing forty nine people in orlando florida was investigated by the f.b.i. twice before he committed his mass murder. turns out they deemed him not to be dangerous that over get out dylan rufe the self-proclaimed white supremacist who killed nine churchgoers in south carolina.
3:30 pm
well it turns out he was able to purchase his weapons because of errors in the f.b.i.'s background check process and then there is no adel hassan he shot up a u.s. military post in texas back in two thousand and nine. the f.b.i. was fully aware that he was online in communication with top al qaeda leaders they still didn't bother to investigate i think we've seen time and time again over the last he is our intelligence agencies across the west dropping the ball in terms of getting tips being aware of potential threats and not following up on those threats and you taking out the fences measures it seems lessons not being learned they need to have a proper review about you know what exact.
