britain's conservative on labor parties accuse each other of failing to prevent the london bridge attack has released from prison and we put the issue up for debate. membership of the terrorist organization should prods a large imprisonment would result but what do you mean membership. telling your friends russia and china strengthen the ties why don't you mr natural gas pipeline dubbed the power of siberia. and us in fact jonathan struggles to survive in the era of big corporate media and powerful political plans as a reporter claims hillary clinton caught him off when he stopped investigative hollywood
producer harvey weinstein's sex offenses. 5 pm here in moscow having a good day what you all in the wild and. let's start with one story that's really sparked debate in recent days dozens of people convicted of terror offenses in the u.k. who were released already all set to have that case and refute that's according to prime minister boris johnson it comes off it was revealed friday's london bridge to taka had himself been released early. any other legal are in the same he was out early and there was no in this has nothing to do with parole there was nothing to do with probation how many legally james legally there are for everybody so this is really become a talking point over the weekend since that attack on friday on london bridge towards the side where the city of london financial district is now of course the
person involved a small car somebody who had already been found guilty of involvement in a plot to blow up the london stock exchange but then was released as part of a scheme and there were attempts to try to rehabilitate him and put him back into society if you will that it was actually one of those events which were organized for not just him as a convicted terrorist but other acts offenders to attend and it was that of reportedly that he decided to launch his attack an attack killing 2 people in injuring 3 others on the london bridge and as i said that has over the weekend sparked a number of political accusations back and forth about who's to blame for this terrorist being on the streets these people darron should never ever be let out of prison unless we're absolutely convinced they do not have the jihadi virus people
don't want history lessons after this terrorist atrocity what people want is to put victims 1st and keeping community safe 1st and if he had been sentenced under our rules he would still be in jail today no terrorist should be released without it being properly assessed whether or not they still pose a risk to the public scotland we have indeed automatic early release for prisoners sentenced to more than 4 years in prison so there's plenty of political fallout as the different parties point the finger at each other the conservatives try. say that this early release scheme is ultimately the responsibility of the labor party while the labor say well firstly it was a conservative government under which this terrorist was released but also that the conservative budget cuts impacted policing and meant that terrorists like this
it's much harder to find now boris johnson over the weekend has been advocating for a policy of locking terrorists up and throwing away the key if you will even his own foreign secretary dominic robb confirms that the conservative party have a policy of a minimum 14 years sentence for dangerous terrorists and there's no guarantee that even would have made a difference in this case because this man was sentenced to 16 years and was the least early so there will be those who are calling for that to be changed while the leader of the labor party jeremy corbyn is arguing that each case should be taken on its merits and that you can't apply a blanket scheme all round so many different opinions as we head towards a poll in just 10 days now that will decide everything from meet the u.k.'s education and environment policy and also how to fight crime and terrorism here at
our team we put the issue of when he thought the debate. since september the 11th we've released 500 terrorists who've committed acts of terrorism in the u.k. that these 2 men a and clearly we need to toughen up our laws brought at the end you've got to remember that these people are quite quite unusual of whilst we need to control them we also need to be very clear that we cannot infringe on civil liberties. because they are so important because these post isis post liberal post in lighton if you like terror attacks happening on home soil they've often come from homegrown terrorists radicals criminals whatever you like to call them but they have been institutional failures the state security apparatus can do better should do better and isn't doing better and we have to ask questions why i remember the police the security services the courts are attempting to prevent these violent terrorists from attacking this country the question here is what are
we doing about those people who are involved in terrorist organizations but have not yet committed serious terrorist offenses i say membership of any terrorist organization should have a life imprisonment or if that would resolve the what do you mean member should know even know who carries a good. luck bus a heart of terrorism friends that on drawdown going on there you know beyond radio country i don't have a terrorist organization i've got no problem on terrorism the hard line thing to saying like throw away the key or terrorism should terrorists go to prison forever that's absolutely fine you know or even open up a dialogue on its capital punishment appropriate some people in some cases ok however what we have to do is ply apply fairly across the board if we are allowing entrapment cases where people are sent to syria and then they come back we reduce their citizenship we transduced their rights you talk about civil rights and human rights what about the bethnal green schools about 14 or 15 were transported to syria if you join a terror organization we have to find out why we have to tackle these issues
properly we're talking about people going to syria. or go into training camps in pakistan people are engaging in acts of terror whether that be fund raising where that be terrorist training or whether the actual acts of terrorism in terms of violence those sorts of people should no more be treated reasonably than somebody who turns around and says i only murdered this woman because it was a crime of passion the law needs to change membership of terrorist organizations needs to hold a maximum penalty of life in prison and then judges can choose whether that maximum is appropriate on a case by case basis that to me seems sensible. and another headline story for you this hour a u.s. journalist claims his friend and former boss hillary clinton and distanced herself from heaven over his investigation of the now disgraced hollywood producer harvey feinstein it's remarkable how quickly even people with a long relationship with you will turn if you threaten the centers of power or the
sources of funding around them ultimately there are lots of people out there who operates in that way they're beholden to powerful interests and if you go up against those interests you become radioactive very quickly thrown in far what does clinton special advisor for years including while she was secretary of state harvey feinstein mean meanwhile donate a tens of thousands of dollars to clinton's 2016 presidential campaign before the whole sexual assault scandal unfolded next up this afternoon donna quarter looks at how investigative journalism in general is becoming harder in the age of big corporate media. only what often portrays investigative journalists as knights in shining armor risking it all to protect the truth is that legal what is it is that we do it for a living. we don't. leave the country. i was doing my job you never want. your gas tank you're going to tell this story
we're going to tell it right and reality though snooping around the lives of influential people could have serious repercussions it could land you in trouble even if we're talking about hollywood royalty like ronan farrow he was essential to the new yorker's 2017 investigation into rape allegations against harvey weinstein the same one that received a pulitzer prize and through the me too movement into the mainstream before his journalism career farrow worked as a lawyer at one point serving under the then secretary of state hillary clinton as her advisor for global youth issues they made quite the team that is until farah began digging into weinstein's dirty laundry did you feel pressure from hillary clinton on and her staff raised concerns about the fact that i was working on this story about one of her most significant donors that they had bungler of hollywood money not to mention pharaoh's original collaborator and b c refused to publish the weinstein revelations all together but this isn't even
the only major story that the mainstream media big wigs have tried to smother a.b.c. anchor amy roebuck recently went public about her investigation into geoffrey epstein's pedophile operation which was killed by the network 3 years ago it was unbelievable what we had with everything. and i tried for 3 years to get it on to no avail and now it's coming out and i think well of revelations what we had it was unreal there were going back to you know. get. your shit so is that it have the rich and powerful become so strong. that investigative journalism has no place in the 21st century you probably can't reach. you know 1020000000 people with investigative stories that really attack it wealthy and powerful when you do investigative journalism which i do for a career in a living and you bump up against the rich and powerful especially if
if your publisher is friendly with those who are rich and powerful you. you know you pay a price you either are taken off the beat and given something else to do like right of it you areas or you are you know in the worst case you're fired. or you're sort of let know that you know your career is not going anywhere there so you should look elsewhere. for a story now of strengthening ties must go on beijing have launched a $3000.00 and pipeline dubbed the power of siberia it's going to carry russia natural gas to china. today we're marking a significant truly historic moment you also need for the global energy market but for us china and russia. our relations center in the new era and i hope russia and china will do more projects of this current projects that will serve the interests
of both countries and benefit tell people. the pipeline took 5 years to build and is the biggest washing investment project yet when calls are a report from beijing the 3000 kilometer long power off siberia gas pipeline and has been commissioned by russia and china on a monday the ambitious project has united the northern hemisphere 2nd largest gas producer along with the world's 2nd largest gas consumer market economic unity and friendship between neighbors or russia and china.
and for china it couldn't be more it signed the the country has been using increasing amounts of gas and it's a trend that looks set to stick around for. this is a major strategic project for bilateral energy cooperation it is of great significance to deepening corroboration between the 2 countries and integrating our interests now russia is also quite pleased with this project when they show them we
are starting with the biggest restructuring projects in the world there will be nothing bigger in the sphere for years to come because this is not about breaking records this is an extremely important project points russia and china but we all know that energy is a stake it's all fake and there is no pleasing everyone especially when someone's been cut out of the deal now the world's largest producer and consumer of natural gas the united states is now perhaps regretting driving to outcast countries together after waging an economic war with one and slapping sanctions on the other the us ongoing trade war with china has driven beijing's consumption of america's flagship liquefied natural gas right down to gas like no other apparently this one has a uniquely american flavor increasing export capacity from the freeport liquefied natural gas project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving america's allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy china and russia as energy corp is
a double whammy for the united states which is also seeing some of its other gas consumers surging their backs on it in a matter of months and all their energy pipeline north stream soon will start flooding europe with russian gas at a faster cheaper and greener rate that is american alternative washington that must be scratching his head at how some european leaders could shun its uniquely flavored gas in favor off a closer ties with moscow despite its best efforts to convince them otherwise we're taking germany were rejecting the french would take a vote with a specially. numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with russia where this thing is or dollars into the coffers of russia that's one of the concerns that president trump has about north stream to why your would voluntarily itself even more to russian energy supplies
and we make a tough case about ensuring that germany doesn't become dependent on russian energy we don't want europe's energy supplies to be depended on platter mere putin we spoke to hong kong based political scientist areas of chang he told us why this is a win win project and both russia and china this is significant for both china and russia for china even some law in terms of energy security in terms of diversification of use and as he so says from the video e's ethic and so on to to the russian siberia it is also significant for russia because it means that it is less and under group in market it opens up the china market with tremendous potential and infrastructure built can also be used to supply oil and natural gas to some korea and japan so there is
a lot of potential to develop the asia pacific market in support of the development of russian far east and eastern siberia in russia resident tell us about it also full of mining town in canada speak out against plans to change its name you twit negative connotations and much more oppositional pray. good job to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go right to the press this is what before 3 in the morning people. interested in the waters of.
labor has been demolished in america and the average income for americans hasn't budged at all in 2030 years because they were neutered from their ability to compete for capital labor has no seat at the table labor has no seat at the central bank labor has been abandoned the jobs have been shipped overseas and wall street now gets all the crap they get 100 percent of the capital every dollar printed by the fed goes directly to wall street bypasses labor bypasses wages. welcome back and over to job many now where a change in leadership and one of the rooming coalition parties has left a big question mark hanging over the alliance his future with new people at the how
the social democratic party is expected to tilt to the left something that's like it's conservative allies. sepsis looks at how the long standing status quo job and politics could soon change and who could come and fill that vacuum. for decades now german voters have always favored parties in the center of the political spectrum radicals no think you give us a stable moderate government and the c.d.u. and s.p.d. were always there had been had to meet that demand but some say that this is a little bit too dull well it's because it was but not anymore and might belong in the past if the s.p.d. is leadership is anything to go by meet walter and saskia as also known in germany as the anti merkel coalition. the real question is are we able to find dances together to the really important questions and that's far from certain it is
the english say with the grand coalition there is no way we can build a fan future there is no future in it so why is the s.p.d. leaving its old palls well it seems that the party is going through its own little crisis at the moment and they have been losing one election after the other and the grand coalition seems to be losing its popularity so in a desperate move to win more voters the social democrats are turning to socialism one the one raise minimum wage increase infrastructure and well 1st spending something straight out of coral marxist book no doubt and the party is going even further left calling for the country's largest brants to be put under collective ownership and nothing less without great civilization overcoming capitalism is inconceivable the key factor is not the distribution of profits is controlled democratically as the s.p.d. is moving closer to the red corner the blue or right wing corner seems to be going
through its own little struggle they've made opposition party alternative for germany is even more popular now in the eastern states causing major headaches for the center right c.b. hugh as the eye if they pushed merkel's party into 3rd place in the latest elections in 3rd. the shell shocked the c.d.u. was even forced to sit down and have a dialogue with the very anti immigration party that they wants labeled as nazis and colleagues from the f.t. faction are just as good as those from any other factions i see the a 50 is a conservative party almost 25 percent of voters gave that ballots to this party and i don't agree with this tendency to betray the all is nazis and the already smelled the blood. there will come a day when we can see do you only one option. if you're expecting the alternative for germany party to embrace and into mainstream politics you'll be disappointed
with even film time during the 2 day congress led the centrist c.d.u. and s.p.d. and the new leader that got elected doesn't seem that he wants to change the agenda and why what he this is what got the party votes in the 1st place as the popularity of the centrist party is all fades voters find comfort in the corners of the political spectrum blue or red some say that this is just a temporary reaction while others believe this is a permanent change eventually for r.t. . and our final story for you this hour will farting in a small canadian town want to change its name because it makes people think of can't they say as best also which is the current name is also pretty bad for local business. the name change discussion has been brewing for some time there is really a negative perception around dispersed us we have lost businesses that don't want to establish themselves here because of the name described as the most dangerous
town in canada as best as for more than 100 years provided hoff the wild supply of the mineral from which its name is derived before its deadly properties were known though the material used to be the heart of the local economy however the main as best as mine closed back in 2012. as best as was widely used in summation for homes but it's been banned in more than 60 countries all around the world the tiny fibers it's made of can be inhaled and potentially cause cancer but some locals of the tower want to hold on to the name. and see the point of changing the name but it's part of the history of the town's showers changing it would be like you're raising us history so we'll have to find a name that's on his or b.m.i. as you see i don't want that i spent my entire life here so for me it's not a lot perhaps for the next generation it would be better to change the name but i would prefer to stick to my reasons as fast there are questions you want me they
should not change i was raised here it's my hometown as a people if used to come here because it seemed as best as it is dangerous because i've lived here my entire life and i don't have any problems to get that question at the us political get some of the community someone from montreal told me that when people hear the name is best those they hear can say i was doing the races in my house was in the morning it's just a brief visit that's just part of. it's not a good idea to change the names very this person's mind is no history. to be brings you up to speed on the biggest stories of the day so far plenty more of those not in accordance to check it out coming away now but it's crosstalk.
you know world of big. law and conspiracies it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever. to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to. fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. ok in the special case something we can benefit say is one of the many of the. book to get us in the gulf where. you thought the whole doping can russia think was over forget it. part of your book about truly a couple of us sure we have them all still some of the muscles and little. russian outlets eligibility for the international competition says it stake this includes
events like the tokyo olympics and the fifa world cup in qatar if i am in the early as last show we all just up here where you can go just as it was 4 years ago in moscow anti-doping plavix at the center of the scandal so who tampered with the doping samples database and one does greegor you want to give have to do with it and you know she's stupid because we've got to pull zameen you put us in a little spots will not use the push on the bushes you will ship by to expose me in the ocean touch a little bit so the polish you know doing is noble. thinking of getting a lot of the ones we got in our ships from groundwater as he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired we don't need
a crate with him he will just reaching out into the wall and is pretty much anywhere near an. exit caged in the in human conditions on puppy farm i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold air the rain the snow the thunder nothing they have no part. if you. take you. across the u.s. crude puppy mills are supported by dog shows and stores most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming operations are being sold at stores even a good businesses are involved but. there has been a shocking amount of organized opposition to adverts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial rating for so many most of that opposition is coming from agricultural groups and industries that have to deal with jobs
by dog on. a low in a welcome to crossfire for all things are considered on peter lavelle trump on hong kong protecting democracy or more meddling in the internal affairs of china also can nato as european members reimagine the alliance and more terror on the streets of london. cross talking some real news i'm joined by i guess robert bridge he's an r.t. website writer also we have dimitri bobbitt she's a political analyst and editor at innocent me internet media project and in london
we cross to marcus papadopoulos he is the editor of politics 1st magazine our gentleman cross-talk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate let's go to marcus 1st in london let's talk about. the trump administration's agreement least tacitly to sanction the china over what's going on in hong kong when. in this something i just don't really seem to understand i mean out and looking at hong kong i know that there's an enormous amount of inequality there that is the responsibility of the hong kong government and it's a one country 2 system so why all the arrow at beijing and of course we know the united states is cheering it on along with its western allies as an irritant to china go ahead marcus your thoughts well later anyone here is o'shea we've pikelets wolf can concludes that what is happening in hong kong or indeed what has been happening since the summer is concerts it is well planned and it is exceedingly
well executed and it is only possible through the sort of cold or special services that we have to ask which special services in the wilds of holland it will or you merely need to do is look at the some cool protesters in hong kong and in my opinion they are no longer protests as they are militants look at the flats they are waving they're waving american and british so let's look at the answers they are singing they are seeing in the american and british out from look at the support the political support they are now the city been thrown america this week we had donald trump sign in seoul or a package which condemns china and risks american tariffs because of the so-called return.
