5:16 pm
universities are dictating what guest speakers can say however there have been several other cases in the u.k. where comics have been stopped from performing or had their material censored that a laugh was banned from performing at cardiff university after hundreds signed a petition complaining his show trivialize rape and activist and comedian kate smith wait had her performance cancelled at a london university because of her views on prostitution she debated the story with media commentator lionel. subsidy trivial for me to sign this document and to be honest if you have to stop and go what you know what they're asking me not to be sexist how could they then maybe it's about time that you sort of thought about the fact that it's twenty eighty and checked out what your material is if every time you see a cup of coffee you shout i hate coffee it's disgusting or you won't be working in a coffee shop next week let me explain what the problem is imagine if i came on r t . my colleague here in comes out and you say oh do not talk about this subject do
5:17 pm
not mention the word pull kremlin united states trump we would say whoa whoa wait a minute hold it we wouldn't say well those are the rules it's like yelling fire in a crowded theater you know it's not down to every comedian to decide what kind of stuff they want to do and if that means that they don't want to play you know there are shows that i know where the comedians perform to children personally i don't do those shows because i don't write the kind of material that suits those events and so i don't put myself forward when i talk is not a question you can't define raises you can't do you know units of what i don't hear and say use a dictionary we know we can't. no no yeah you know i have many you don't want me to carry lying about as i are by and the rest of earth absolutely raises a peek into me if you're hyper sensitive go up racism but that's not raises or yes it is no it's not so if you say don't say the homophobic don't see anything that in
5:18 pm
any way is sexually gratuitous what does that mean look it up in the dictionary i'm not asking what the word racist means i'm talking about the context your application of it but i do think that the answer is that everybody is entitled to offend you know here's my radical opinion think you're entitled to free speech i think they're entitled to say this is what we think the rules should be and i think everybody else who's involved in that should be entitled to agree to disagree you're saying a saying can't let it go or get out of here should be rules listen to what we're talking about a comedian but by the way if there was no rules or what the heck was he being asked to sign we are losing our sense of humor we're losing our guts and our spine we're losing who we are removing our personality so keep it up comics keep it up you'll be out of a job in six months i dispute his lead up within germany's governing coalition over an abortion or van story and more still to come.

5:20 pm
a democracy has to be the trust in news and information and if that trust is fundamentally shaken and the independent media are criticized then i think that's a problem from a communications perspective. welcome back to the program every minute within jamey's governing coalition over a long standing no banning doctors from advertising abortions the social democrats who are the junior partner in the coalition say the law is too harsh and should be scrapped but the new leader of the christian democratic union says it should stay in place and. then as a k.-k. . last week is known for his strong conservative views opponents of the old states back to. the doctors at risk of criminal charges for offering information about
5:21 pm
abortions. a.k.k. took to twitter to say protecting life both born and unborn remains of utmost importance to our party we asked locals for their views on the controversial. i think it's a really difficult decision. and the women do that because. i think mostly they're desperate and not because it's yeah it's fancy and it is quite healthy you to not promoted but to inform people about certain options to have this is very important and they're down and doctors can really get this information to patients and it's hard to see something going to the moon are you so stupid to do you would just have an abortion because it's so much on. the link a party member began thomas early believes if a crime the current power continues the policy of apprentice as a party will lose support fast. trying to pretend to

be a conservative but she's just following in the footsteps of angela merkel and those a conservative issues that she's bringing up are failing to convince and i believe that she should be tackling the real issues that she should be going back to christian democrat philosophy of the one nine hundred fifty s. which was but you also have to your people that you have just an economy that works for everyone and those issues have been overlooked by the american government we have lots of poverty in our country and those are the values that people care about it and i did come can. continue the policies of angle of merkel then the c.d.u. will continue to lead voters and lose at the polls. question lashawn maria but tonight could testify in an unspecified second u.s.

case according to new reports having spent months in an american jail on thursday she pleaded guilty to failing to register as a foreign agent the charges initially brought against maria button included const to defraud the us mainstream media were quick to put a sensational spin on it being a spy though she was not accused of being one following her guilty plea the prosecutor's office said it would seek up to five years in prison with deportation also an option as the case tried but as essentially been kept in solitary confinement for months her father believes this played a role in her guilty plea. for years and you the conditions she's being kept in are having an impact if you have the chance to prove her innocence and justify her activity she would do just that this is very hard for her for most three months now she's been discriminated against and has been held in isolation what she needs most bizarre support we are waiting for the situation to be resolved soon and in
5:24 pm
a way that is such as fact. to both my daughter and our whole family since november the twenty years she's been kept in administrative segregation which involves twenty two hours in the cell and as early or two hours outside during which time she can make calls so we know what those conditions are really like. international law attorney booth marked on the bottle not behind bars. well at the beginning of this you know she was a russian spy well she wasn't a spy. the concept of a spy is somebody who's obtaining secrets from the government that didn't happen at all this is a young girl she believes in the right to bear arms she met only with private people she has a relationship with somebody who used to be i think in the senate in russia mr torsion who strongly believes that as well we have a very technical law that says if you're quote representing a foreign government or official that you have to register and that's that the
5:25 pm
technicality. that she violated and this is not the type of case that you would have thought would have been prosecuted he would have not thought that she would have put him put in jail as long as she was if there was a technical violation at the most she should have been expelled from the country. but next up it's. everything.
