it's not unprecedented you're looking at the radio television serbia headquarters in belgrade yugoslavia bombed today by nato forces the attack knocked the state run station off the air killing ten people and wounding nineteen with twenty believed to still be buried in the debris according to an associated press report the international called the bombing of the t.v. station a war crime the terrorism bill clinton and tony blair arguably more guilty of crimes against journalism. we'll have more in the weeks atrocities in u.k. armed israeli and saudi military action later in the show first after the british government's defacto defeat in the face of german corbin's onslaught of a brics it legal advice i'm joined by former u.k. attorney general lord morris is the prime minister approaches a so-called endgame morris how is the democratic exercise in history ended up with jeremy cool being ordered to be next prime minister demanding the publication of bricks and legal advice because the.
unique matter. on there though there of significance going to war is of very great significance for any country this is equally if not much greater on these very aware of occasions their offices advice how's it been published neither the contents nor the existence of an office as a device is ever. the only exception has been in the war it was refused in great. the existence of the device was conceded in february one thousand nine hundred three by both douglas heard the secretary nicholas. but not the contents maastricht being the precursor to closer european integration the previous treaty which was of the utmost importance and indeed the foundation of where we are today. this occasion on the. occasion the
cabinet secretary decided it was their new nique occasion standing on the job and therefore the then to turn. his advice should be published and i've come down very very slowly very lucky overnight that this is the major occasion my suspicion is that he is never with the formal opinion that you don't you voice does concert. my guess is that he has never put anything formally on paper before the cabinet or before the prime minister because he is not a public law expert he will be advised by treasury counsel who specialize in these fields. if you will the attorney general now that because of tourism is political problems suddenly finding a pen and pencil and talking to treasury legal advice. might and consult with
a specialist to do better than i am i becoming a lawyer if i decide to murder one of the by far i was the man to come to a because i knew all about it. but i'm not a public law expert and that's why the attorney is not acting on you though is a list. lawyer is of the lord advocate or the equivalent in scotland there were joint opinions on the maastricht treaty of the lord advocate and the attorney and you've got to treasury. of experts is another matter because there's another element. to this day so much but the cabinet minister leading to in the past twenty four hours even raised the proper do independent legal advice being a factor here aside from the legal advice of the government what does that even mean that's nonsense because the advice of the government constitutionally is her majesty and emphasize that her majesty's law offices
a mugger is his attorney general and he is the advisor the principal adviser to the government. get an independent report to support. irish back or perhaps the whole country. which was raised by a remain as is the kind of scoop of legal advice that not only leads to perhaps the destruction we remember to state aid restrictions it affects agriculture industry all the different elements of the brics agreement. maybe kicking the can down the road and tried to get on with what they think are the major matters. result. and they're all part of the huge area. issues i think we can put.
aside and try to deal with what appears to be the problem is what to do with northern ireland and my feeling is northern ireland is an important part country divided we. boarded the middle of the. it did very important. now we've reached a point with the dog. and it's being and is the debate of course but on the state aid issue part of the reason the british may focus the corbin. leadership of the labor party state aid restrictions are contained in legal advice about three nationalization of the railways electricity water. without the agreement when i was. forthcoming to a brigade and. any aid that was given by her majesty's government or
there was nothing else at that stage had to be. the same way if we are part of europe there will be no solutions is this way. write things down then i mean obviously you said this would be advised treasury official now they might have to write it down because the government has resumes been forced to say why didn't you write everything down on pieces of paper they had devised over the course of a war. very difficult very tenuous so i took the opportunity of putting everything on. those i gather correspondence it is now public knowledge that the documents can be made available as you can see why geoffrey wouldn't want to do with. it because. it can be tied to it and. i am surprised. that he hasn't well i'm sure as we would completely deny that
there's any such lacking legal knowledge around the cabinet table she lost his appeal court decision about the ability to unilaterally revoke article fifty completely with the. time left if possible what's the mood in the lords because now eight hundred to one thousand statutory instruments needed the vote was into the sixteen eight hundred to one thousand sets tree incidents and needed for bricks it to bring the law in with the law and you will be part of that process yes . i've just been reading the agriculture. which has been severely criticised by a block report from the select committee on delegated legislation in the lords which examines all these delegated pollers bill and they've come to
a huge amount of criticism of the bill which. dozens if not hundreds of stature to the edge of us that there is no hope for tall either of examining the population or even dealing with the numbers of them in the time available i mean it's not just that there are only fourteen of two hundred thirty six international treaties of being rolled over so the britain has these with other countries when is that heading your way as well. i would be but it's got to go through a legislative process and that means that to his apartment how we can be done in a little amount to be acted for years before anyone thinks this is ok hm law we're talking about were you surprised then that the transport secretary. chris grayling said he was exploring the idea of chartering ships to guarantee food supplies and meds and supplies to this country because of the lack of all these types of
agreements if there is no deal. as i stand it maybe our. president did and how the situation. with the idea of. the county becoming a car park. i don't fight it nobody else will and i hope we do not come to that situation the particle problems of getting medicine. i'm told is one of the problems we have and when you sort out these problems your feeling then is that it's not going to be able to happen by the end of march i think. has. to decay and the time scale which seems to me somebody who is out of the major decision making and you decision making that is an impossible task general thank
you. for the break as the taliban calls for complete u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan after peace talks we speak to an award winning journalist who interviewed. stories on. us the benefit of tremendously economically through the car of the wheel of the world by coming out of a factory giving it the power to impose structure without countries or with it is a fundamentally doesn't understand how these are these are useful tools of us imperialism of in fact. it's not clear what his growth is i mean it's true that
these institutions are deeply unfair with an unfair to the u.s. they're on. to the majority world of the global south and that's really the reason we need to reform them. it's hard to imagine decades after the war a nazi doctor was still active rich in the nineteen seventies crittle had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery. a german company develops a little mite a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy. it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby anything. you know she said is just. a mini salute of mine victims who have to this day received no
compensation they never apologized for the suffering. not only want the money i want the revenge. welcome back after monday's just struction of a t.v. channel by the israeli government by the british government and others i'm joined by the editor in chief of. one thanks so much for coming on surprises not more outrage that israel destroyed a t.v. station when it. seems this is normal. nobody paid attention at all iraq t.v. station is bombed people were killed journalists are completely you know displaced so there we don't tear any any criticism or any sympathy in any other parts of the world this is the proper the why do as there is a there is a really bombed element are before in south lebanon the american bombed. in baghdad
so if if you are not with them you know it means they can't do anything nobody will you know reason finger look at the bomb. of hamas it is a television station hamas was elected and a. transparent. election and in palestine what happened nobody i didn't see a single piece in any newspapers talking about a mass station was bought and they are saying that we ask that stuff of our decision to leave but in two thousand and four the killed more than two thousand people they did not ask anybody to leave before they bombed them otherwise we wouldn't have this high number of casualties to take place and what was behind their brigade commander no baracoa was being killed what happened you know they sent as special forces to gaza and order maybe to kidnap
one of hummus leader or kill him in order to bargain because there are two hostages israeli hostages what hamas may be they were looking for the place of those hostages and in order to release them so maybe there are looking for that it means of other two is there is soldiers killed and how mask it as as a hostage or something like that because for hamas prisoners in later stages we don't know but it was very fishy why why hamas is talking about a truce. a sort of permanent peace for a best. why the israeli decided to provoke the troops or to revoke the troops to send special forces to provoke hamas they sent about four hundred myside so this is actually a big question we don't know is there some rift in among the israeli cabinet that netanyahu was in paris and that time. his defense minister for example liberman did
he decide to spoil the water for we know that election is coming to israel so we don't know but there is actually committed a very very grave mistake by doing this and trying to actually. put and into the truce which was actually and was extremely successful and this feat well as usual we haven't got the israeli ambassador to london here we ask for help let's just turn to yemen now jeremy hunt the british foreign secretary was in saudi saying you want to get to the bottom of the cause shoji killing even as edward snowden was reeling that he was claiming israeli spy ware was used because assassination. audley hunt should be in saudi arabia to talk about. whiles apparently there was an ongoing operation in yemen colonel tokyo mulkey
of the saudis military said there was ongoing when you make a journey home being in but i'm surprised you know the german hunty did not actually directed any blame to the saudi government he said you know we managed or we succeeded actually to reach some sort of deal with the saudi government to let the injured people to be treated outside the yemen that we were going to hooty community people going to will be england well i wish so where they were so you know because simply why he was silent this war is going on for at least a year or three years and a half what about those people who were injured more than thirty thousand yemenis were injured most of them children and civilians why british government was silent about this why now there realize that there are injured people who need treatment outside given they cannot be treated even inside yemen because most of the hospital were bombed by the saudi alliance this is the problem now they say don't we should
actually advocate for stopping this war completely and to the withdrawal of the saudi troops and troops from yemen and let the yemenis sort out themselves vigorously the the trumpet ministration as we draw in all refueling i mean they're refueling for. this is nothing to be honest they should stop a munition this should stop besides stop selling fifteen sixteen to their saudi and to the united arab emirates for using these warplanes to bomb civilian targets inside yemen briefly to afghanistan i should say that britain has license five billion in weapons to saudi arabia since the open war began what do you make of the fact that. trump is now saying there should be no. presidential elections next year. the taliban russia china india pakistan all talking in moscow and the taliban saying right it's over the us to get out of afghanistan it is that action
breakthrough for russia actually for the last seventeen years it used to be american territory that american promise that granny. ability jobs prosperity after seventeen years look author situation of the taliban control about fourteen district and they are active in more than seventy five percent of the of gannett directories and the american actually come out decide what to do with afghanistan there are that out there here maybe the question will give them you know. helping and we don't know yet ok but just finally why did why did fifteen thousand british servicemen and women die or wounded since during those seventeen years sure we have ever been there where the american goes the british full of them there is no independent policy is there is no independent strategy there is no independent government they cannot say no to united states this is the
problem so. how many people belong. you know a thousand people are going to stand there are still involved what they are going to achieve in afghanistan this is the biggest question and daughter is going to answer this ok taliban there are afghani people you know we cannot see it taliban leave afghanistan to come to britain. you know. asylum status for example this is this is the biggest problem i think britain is wrong they should follow the steps of the american and now they are following the steps of. imposing sanctions against iran and trying to set up a new need to put. in them. at least in order to find out what. it is and find it but it could for example is. the united states it is that who would like actually better to mobilize the american and british and other european in
order to fight their war against them but i would think. well joining me now to go through some of the week's top stories a journalist and writer the u.k.'s leading independent news tried the canary steve troll paul stephen way from television stations being bombed by british countries let's go straight to the tweet about the german invasion of france indeed so this is mr donald j. trump tweeted a man you know my grandson just building its own army to protect your because of us trying to ram russia but it was german doing what it was well done to how did that work out for france they were starting to learn german in paris before the us came along pay for it all dot good point well made well indeed this is trouble because matt brown came out and suggested about a year. a rather trumped up in arms about this i mean his timing with this awful tweets couldn't be less appropriate because it just might be appropriate let's go
straight to this absurd story of a day being investigated it's outrageous claims once again so un envoy warns poverty in britain is a political choice this is the un special repertory fearing in the baltic yes exactly i don't know what his business is. special up to a philip alston who specializes in extreme poverty he's got an investigating u.k. doing a tour and a fact finding mission this particular story he has to jailbreak an essex which has been the subject of many programmes on the television about poverty about benefit claimants about austerity he's also been hearing evidence about food banks see it's been quite forthright actually has come out and said that for the food bank system in this country it shouldn't be an replace of the state operating in protecting people who are at the bottom rungs of society but of course there's. an added element to this which the mainstream press of generally missed this is the fifth the fifth reports by un subcommittee in thirty months in the u.k.
we have un committee on economic social and cultural rights reports on june twenty sixth game found another un human rights committee reports and we've had two reports by the un committee and so the rights of persons with disabilities one of which said the u.k. government have committed grave and systematic violations of people's human rights resulting in a human catastrophe this is a concept missing this is now the fifth time the un will have investigated the u.k. successive u.k. governments have gone there with us with this man has begun a paraguay bangladesh comparing britain to the poorest countries on earth it is absurd if you are a banker or you remember the conserved apology you can't deny that there is an issue in this country i mean as well you have to look at our property rights and we said that sixty percent of the median average income in this country even e.u. came out and said that's not good enough we should be fifty percent so we're even underscoring poverty as it is is probably a lot worse than actually as well in fairness two hundred five billion pounds is needed for elsewhere let's go to italy see we're yes so this is a bad call and do watch over submarine contract this essentially the story that one
of the trident submarine is has been sitting in dock for three years at a cost of two hundred million but nothing to do with poverty in this country at all the beleaguered tried and submarine system in this country costs vary between four to six billion two hundred billion and this is a new century been throwing money away apparently in the governments aren't too happy we do as a nerve to go back was kind of a rule but i should say corbin a city willing to press the button even after all this money is being spent one federation of american scientists has as beleaguered forty eight warheads on the most go area could kill two and a half million a million outside moscow three million dying within two weeks of radiation exposure including seven hundred fifty thousand children with several million injured so a powerful system to protect our safety yes but is beleaguered because firstly the costs keep going out. and up secondly we all know there's a nuclear war would be no win situation and thirdly i mean the relationships between the u.k. russia up and down the roads med's banquet last night saying oh well russia if you
tell us that you've been naughty and admit your folks and we'll be friends with the guy that's really your piece in the canary yes so public support for fracking has officially nosedives so this is the department for business energy and industrial strategy does a quarterly survey of the public on their views on energy and u.k. and how we should supply and how the government deals with it and fracking is officially nosediving in december twenty thirty and it's now plummeted from that point twelve percent support for fracking has dropped by it's now fifteen percent second lowest point so far since the u.s. has been doing the survey meanwhile opposition is growing ten percent since december twenty third now at thirty one percent of course this survey was done in september of this year this is before the earthquake started that press the new rows minor earthquake struck the mind of. the strong as well as the magnitude one point one this is of course a quarter of a sergeant preston you write in lancashire one point one magnitude that black ball now you say that none of the scientific evidence doesn't back this up what
academics in the us and academics i've been saying is these minor squads of them pretty loose more major instance because essentially the more you shake the rock that we stand on the more on the mind the rock is going to become and the more likely the larger earthquakes to develop will do little additions as about five million people will die between twenty thirty and twenty fifty excess deaths using the plays of fracking that's been shown are going to increase greenhouse gas emissions so they're not doing anything about climate change by introducing fracking i think it's more looking for energy independence you say with the budget just a few weeks ago they gave tax breaks to oil and gas companies on those recently the government signed off on more exploration of north sea oil fields i think with the situation in the middle east when so volatile with regards to oil look at the sanctions on iran and saudi arabia directions that i think britain is mirroring the us. in looking for energy independence well here it home numbers of murders in twenty eighteen leche twenty seven teens a total figure on monday i think this is about that more than stopping journalists
i think so yeah police are in talks to scrap the reasonable grounds condition for stopping this is the old going control stop and search obviously if you read the press should be believed there's a knife crime epidemic in london in the control and so the police are looking to scrap the reasonable grounds which basically means that they have a suspicion that someone is carrying you want to be stopped and reasonably well apparently so look stop and search is always been controversal i was reading this morning that in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine six times more likely young black men were to be to be stopped by police the figure is now nine times more likely that black men will be stopped there's been constant criticism of this it doesn't actually work but we're now seeing this kneejerk reaction to the frenzy around the knife crime epidemic in the capital whereas actually if you look at the figures as well historically not crime to highest under tony blair in two thousand and six two thousand seven hundred side writes the highest it ever was in two thousand and six two thousand and seven there were over five thousand hospital admissions i'm jus tonight for shop instrument injuries well known as i live in
a community where there's been two murders by not a crime in the past year alone hundred yards from our doorstep in both occasions i know full well the implications of what's happening with narconon london but also why it's happening and the things we see these pics and history of gang related. basically go like this so there's not lies a reason why it's happening so they it's capitalism capitalism breeds inequality and that's what is the root of all this angry young people who feel that the system has left them behind that stop and searching ultimately is going to solve that problem a system reboot of how we govern ourselves is what's needed thank you and that's it for the show join us for going on the ground exclusive t.v. interview with the new palestinian ambassador. until donald trump go expansion into the general delegation to the usa until then even try social media without good sound even if i. yes the days of some government in my office is anti globalist he said ellen was founded in the mountains of mexico.
