9:21 am
fierce national debate police federation's blame cuts to police funding there are around twenty thousand fewer police officers now than there were eight years ago while the rate of violent crime has shot up the home office's own leaked documents suggest that there is a link between cuts to police budgets and serious violent crime london's mayor says that it's a deadly combination we have fewer officers than any time since two thousand and three at a time when the population is going up it's more and more difficult and yet a government minister has denied the link between cuts and crime pointing to other factors instead like social media about police numbers does isn't supported by the evidence or for previous spikes in serious violent crime is changing the gangs or using social media to communicate they're using mobile communications in ways
9:22 am
that ten years ago even five years ago simply was not possible back in twenty fifteen and a broad winning senior police officer warned to reason may who was home secretary at the time that cutting funds for the police would risk national security we run the risk of watching community. risk. alternately risking national security up until now the government's managed to deny that slashing police budgets would public safety at risk but as the death toll mounts and public. an increase is arguing that there's no link between budget cuts and violent crime it's going to be more difficult i've absolutely no idea why a who was home secretary for most of the last eight years before she became prime minister i have no idea at all why she didn't listen to the warnings the
9:23 am
governments do and there's a link between the rises in crime the levels of violent crime on our streets and the number of police officers for the very simple reason that they know that if there is a link established they will be held responsible they are responsible the whole thing is a total shambles and it will take at least ten years if not longer to sort it back out if we started tomorrow or most given no indication of starting tomorrow. there are fees for the safety of a son jafta his legal team said that someone did try to break into the ecuadorian embassy in london they whistleblower hasn't left the building there since twenty twelve when he sought refuge fearing extradition to the us from outside the embassy and situation or reports. according to reports citing the wiki leaks founder his legal team it's being claimed that quite recently a songe had experienced an attempted break in inside the it could dorian embassy
9:24 am
here in london just behind me where of course he has been holed up now for over six years and according to these reports that site his team what allegedly happened was a songe had experienced an attempted intruder trying to break through one of the windows in front of the building and what stopped that intruder allegedly or at least made a songe aware of him was a booby trap that set up using a fire hydrant and now any more details or information about what happened next who this person might have been or any details on this really continue to remain a mystery so that's all that we know so for now we have contacted the metropolitan police to see if they had anything to say on this and they said they have no reports of such an attempt to break in and we also tried to speak to officials inside this embassy he told us over the phone to the is not currently in place so they're not charged with the authority to me comments on this matter but supporters
9:25 am
of julian assange have made it clear that their concerns about his security are quite high this is what his mother had said quite recently the loss of my son general killing and. then immediate critical danger the former president of ecuador. publicly wark it when u.s. president not paid. to deal with done to him and julian to you it will if you can see behind me the building is now currently covered with scaffolding this also raising concerns about whether or not this could be somehow affecting the security camera operations that are that have up until now been in place so lots of questions about coming from the sun. to supporters now about whether or not he's actually seen being inside the embassy all of this even more so highlighted by the fact that recently a scientist had quite a rocky relationship with dorian officials if you remember his access to the
9:26 am
internet as well as other communications and visitors had been restricted by a good or even officials who were not happy with him expressing his opinions on political issues around the world that restriction was later partially lifted exchange for certain rules that julian assange had to follow that officials were asking of him to follow which he was not quite happy doing whatsoever so really exactly where this whole saga is going to be heading next could really be anyone's guess. in germany. of course c.d.u. party has reportedly stepped down as she prepares to run for the party's leadership replacing the outgoing merkel but the jury is still out on who were actually when this race is that are as there are of a major contenders for the post as peter all of reports this is often the simplest fact that acted fast pull out the next you do you party convention in december i
9:27 am
will not run for the chair of the party secondly this fourth time is the last one for me i will not run for chance niger in the twenty twenty one election the queen is dead long live well that's the thing we don't exactly know who is going to step in shoes as the sun begins to set on her career and front line politics her coalition has taken a pounding in popularity polls of late and come paining to try and be the next leader of the christian democratic union adjusting for position so let's have a look at who the front runners are. the c.d.u. is the start it's not about which single person is shining within the city but the party as a whole has to shine. abbreviated to just a k k is the current general secretary of the christian democratic union party and frequently talked about as angela merkel's chosen was a default catholic she is culturally conservative opposed to gay marriage and to
9:28 am
abortion however when it comes to migration she's on side with angela merkel's policy saying that they are in step with her religious beliefs she's also on side with angela merkel's policies internationally skeptical when it comes to russia but very keen on e.u. cooperation same old same old big problem a.k.k. could be though the people got sick of the same old same old and that's the very reason that i'm glad merkel's job is up for grabs. spahn is a completely different story however the thirty eight year old health minister seems to hate everything mrs merkel stands for her migration policy is the white elephant in the room according to mr spann he opposes limited dual citizenship for young foreigners criticized attempts to loosen laws on advertising abortions and called for banning the book or in public he is liked by the right wing conservative element in the party to an extent his homosexuality and marriage to his long term
9:29 am
partner last year thought to count against him with traditionalists though when it comes to international affairs he's seen as more nationalistic and some even speculate he's the one most likely to get on with u.s. president donald trump do you think that. you did this club intend to keep. making up the triumvirate of front runners is a blast from the cd you passed frederick metz was part of a group opposed to anglo-american becoming leader back in two thousand and two they viewed the twenty first century's iron chancellor as just helmut kohl's girl from the east merkel defeated him and then ousted him from party leadership cd you need progressive political discussion and in my opinion this means the c.d.u. needs to get things straight about its image fiscally conservative he once famously wanted to digest germany's labrinth fine tax laws so they would fit on
9:30 am
a big popular with traditionalists when it comes to international matters he's very much in favor of e.u. ever expanding union and after the greece debt debacle that's not so hot with the old guard when it comes to germany's place on the international stage it's very clear. trends atlanticist because cosmopolitan germany. and the european. unlike cement whose most important political allies are the democracy is a waste with whoever gets the job being set up as the logical successor to one glimmer as chancellor how do those candidates fare but remember we have two competing models here one of them is represented by two alpha males who are clearly quite conservative compared to merkel they're ambitious their power hungry up against me is in some ways another american like figure who will continue with her line.
