6:18 am
international checking out some other news for you now former u.s. vice president joe biden has a clear lead over socialist bernie sanders in the contest for the twenty twenty democratic presidential nomination according to the latest polls and it seems many in the media and the party's leadership are already throwing their weight behind the centrist front runner as they once did with hillary clinton of course explains more. but new poll shows that joe biden has surged ahead in the race for the democratic nomination in two thousand and twenty the poll shows that forty six percent of democrats are backing joe biden as the potential nominee with only fourteen percent backing bernie sanders and despite a lot of other polls telling a very different story the media has jumped on this one voices are now telling us why he's the best choice for the democrats and this is a guy who doesn't hate republicans like you see some of the folks on the website
6:19 am
you mean for joe biden is that he's the most electable candidate for democrats to beat donald trump i think joe biden best chance of success is this sudden coronation remind you of anything hillary clinton is the best candidate democrats can put forward to take on donald trump voters in wisconsin think hillary clinton is the best candidate hillary clinton is the best candidate the media tells us that joe biden is the most experienced candidate biden is certainly the most experienced candidate i think hillary clinton is the single most experienced and prepared person who has ever run for president of the united states furthermore it stresses the point that biden is a centrist he's actually kind of a centrist which is one of the reasons why i think republicans fear him more than the others hillary clinton is not threatened in terms of the nomination because she is a pretty moderate centrist democrat and in fact biden's first campaign fundraiser happened at the home of the exact same guy his name is david cohen he's the chief lobbyist
6:20 am
for the media conglomerate known as comcast now both biden and clinton voted for the iraq war both biden and clinton have lots of wall street donors and both biden and clinton screamed to lock him up in the one nine hundred ninety s. driving america's incarceration rate sky high for those who may have forgotten hillary clinton last trump's victory in the twenty sixteen election was interpreted largely as a rebuke of a failing political establishment now hillary clinton's husband got some interesting advice here. as a go my wife gave me a psychology book several months ago in which the author defined insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result perhaps it's time to revisit that book polls are often a reflection of media coverage and the corporate media in the united states low suman gives him lots of coverage and that can give him support in polls and they often poll likely democratic voters which is not the same thing as who actually
6:21 am
ends up voting in a general election even just who answers polls is not the same thing as who votes clinton she was the most experienced and the most right wing of the democrats the media loved her but it didn't mean she could get elected in fact the polls were overwhelmingly clear time and time again. that there are massive purchases of advertising joe biden twenty twenty has already engaged in of what their media like someone telling everyone they are the leading candidate as they did overwhelmingly with the ellery clinton does not you know anyway obvious mean that that is the candidate who is going to win an election. you know the will do counting is underway in south africa which has held what's been framed as the country's most crucial election since the end of the apartheid twenty five years ago and at this stage the african national congress looks on course to extend its rule
6:22 am
a record forty eight policies through the hats in the ring with three considered front runners polls published last month suggested the african national congress would continue governing the country the centrist democratic alliance despite a strong fight is expected to fall well short while the far left economic freedom fighters are expected to double their vote since the last election the thoughts of the co-founder of the champion south africa movement who predicts indeed the incumbent president will be given a second chance here. it could well be the first time the ruling. party this one every election since one thousand nine hundred four may well lose hold of the election that means either get below fifty and be voted out of power or get very close to that and have to form a coalition with another party to stay in power so that is the is the key significant point if the former president of the a.n.c. or the government of south africa president zuma at the time were still in power i would actually tell you now i'm almost certain they see both would fall below fifty
6:23 am
percent we've had now the deputy former deputy president sort of a poser as the president he was the choice ironically of nelson mandela to be the person of the country all those years ago there's a sense that people are going to give him a chance to see if he could fix up the problems of the party now the point you've raised is not something being silently discussed it's been openly discussed from within the a.n.c. there's an agency that needs massive reformation and the sense they selling is that . is your main well the ruling party's popularity is waning over a perceived failure for a start to address key issues he's come under fire for one failing to combat an employment starting at twenty seven percent and to the fight against crime has been a key issue for the campaign as well with theft and murder rates on the rise and probably most contentious issue has been land reform seventy one percent of private farmland is still in the hands of white farmers highly controversial and some parties will controversially to suggesting that they be removed from that land
6:24 am
without compensation all of those calling for reform is one julius malema he is the leader of the far left economic freedom fighters or the e.f.-s. party malema has previously been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against the country's white minority he was also expelled from the incumbent and see for serving racial division back in twenty twelve for the spotlight to in recent months again the. rhetoric. white people you will remember it we are cuddly to seat do you know. if you are you see us do you know. that the that man had the spirit to eat. fast. they say do you know. why we don't care really why not now. why don't you do you know what time i'm saying to you we're not called
6:25 am
for the killing of white people at least for now i can guarantee the future but i was come under fire for stoking racial tensions during his campaign national guard again says the candidates charge slogans are crossing a line. julius malema of course speaks a very nonracial line on the one hand but he makes no bones about the fact that he is there to serve the black masses the black this and french ice masses and i think that's absolutely understandable but he's still very close to the wind in making certain comments of the latest one about the seat at the front table i understand the imagery the reality is it could well drum up people to believe literally that's what he means if we don't sit with you we destroy the table and that in a racially charged environment is unacceptable more so as we know on election day. authorities in the fool in northern israel are a part of making good on a promise to quote preserve the city's character in
6:26 am
a highly controversial step they decided to bad arabs from visiting the local park their policy a picture of the story for you. this is the northern israeli town of afula home to around fifty thousand people most of whom are jewish the town and particularly this park women use recently because of if it's by citizens to maintain what they call the character of the place and the way to do this according to the town's mayor is to shut out so-called minority members back say arab citizens of nearby villages that's just a euphemism for keeping arabs out and. the book is a police over in germany it's not the police only for jews it is. only for residents of. an increase of discrimination they do not directly say does against arabs but not all of the arabs and even our food and who feel like it is forbidden for us to. sit ins here disagree they say that people who don't live in the town
6:27 am
should not be allowed into the park the official word from the municipality is that we must safeguard. it insists that the closure of the park to nonresidents has nothing to do with jews and arabs but rather it's a way of exposing the town's residents to a host of activities the. they can participate in where they would like the people all the jews come here when arabs come here they just cause problems being you can't and they listen hard belongs to the city and it's just in the interest of their residents to look after is a place people from the outside don't have that interest but i'm not a visit and i'm here this matter will now forward into the lap of the interior ministry to decide later this month. r t a for northern israel. twenty seven minutes past one o'clock the soft new my name is kevin though in that sense some of the world's news is looking for mount international this thursday was big stories as well we're going to the pictures of a such big day russia millions of people expected indeed they are pouring into the streets of the capital and around rush hour of the next hour or so on the seventy
