see how the.
11:01 am
stories from the past 7 days on right up to the minute developments this is the weekly international alone. russia is being a major international sporting events for the next 4 years. the world anti-doping agency for. bringing with a key database of test results from russian. this is a russia that protects the rights of russian see each. entry for major events. not. me we.
11:02 am
comply what is important thing to this decision is that we are really sanctioning those who are responsible for this menu pollutions and leave those open for those who had nothing to do is. in russia clean. our experts who provided convincing owns the unfortunately they haven't heard us resign or has time to appeal initially when we handed over the database we said let's investigate the database together so that we can make a full decision we wanted to have a kind of mechanism if we don't want some objective decision let's do it like this with saddam has all the necessary opportunities they could have taken a different approach or while this is a clean up police will be able to compete on neutral but russian officials are not prohibited from attending major sporting events while the country won't be allowed to host any tournaments. well the list of events rush is now being excluded from is
11:03 am
extensive and includes the olympic and paralympic games in tokyo in 2021 football world cup in qatar 2 years after that russia was the last host of a vent of course and its players will have to play as neutrals if they qualify some other events as well now while there is insisting that the onus is on clean players to prove they haven't dropped their sports correspondent. breaks down the ruling for us. it is quite unclear how exactly stripping a nation off its flag in major sports competitions across the planet can actually solve the problem of fighting again. doping you're not on innocent until proven guilty and i'm in school you're guilty and he can prove you're innocent a complete reversal of the normal justice system on but it's always been that way you gotta think about what's on the world anti-doping agency has jurisdiction but
11:04 am
it doesn't at yours dictionary to the russian authorities become sanction russian politicians and all it can do is sanction resettling and take actions relative to schools so it's come up with this international standard to code compliance by signatories which is used to sanction russia this time around. on top of everything it seems that what is decision from monday was made in such a haste that they have no clue how to actually navigate in that decision the biggest example of that is probably the situation with your way for anthy for tournament's well where you are where you quite expected that. these sanctions will not affect in any way russian part of the upcoming euro are 1st of all it's a continental tournament not of world qualification for or for compartment it. is again within the competence of us for sure that make it to the 2022 world cup in
11:05 am
qatar it may be stripped of its flag of its anthem and it may be participating as a neutral country. and if you're not yet confused enough they already said directly that should rush a deal to cast the court for arbitration of sports and this process takes longer than the official preparation for next summer's olympics russia will go to next summer's olympics in tokyo as a full fledged nation but then if the band is implemented late it might miss out on the 2020 for some big games in paris from whichever side you look at it monday's decision by water looks like a vocal and very harsh indictment of russian sports it might send shock waves and reverberations in the country sport for many years to come but it might actually be the beginning of a new struggle of a new battle the legal one when russia takes its case to the court of arbitration for sports in switzerland and we are expecting this to be made quite quickly before
11:06 am
the end of this year this is a punitive action against the law including begin to shoot once a month. many more in just a few. garage incidents is not going to particular with there's no evidence of this against them this may be raising a human rights issue whether. they're going to raise this before the record or i'm not entirely certain we have to accept that there is a when we become. a thing that actually applying it. here there once was in terms of. the russian the initial russian expect with great anticipation to see what the. point in the essence of what it's doing it's like saying i'm going to come into your state because somebody from you know decide who comes and goes. well some of the big names in russian sport have been sharing their reactions with us.
11:07 am
but the doping scandal lasted for a few years i expected something like this stuff to rio. to be honest it was expected it's a pity the athletes have to suffer it's terrible it's terrible for all russian sports that's what i can feel about it. just i don't want to make a link between sports and politics but it looks like good for those sanctions imposed by the west for the last few years. someone just wanted to punish our country but this is without reason a country is not a 3 year old child. allow us to compete on that the neutral flag somehow they don't want to see the russian colors. maybe our flag is something irritating and someone doesn't want to see us compete in our old flag in our own anthem.
11:08 am
as i visit here i have already hired a lawyer and even if they don't allow me to participate while i'm already a grandmother sports maybe this is our fate was more begin you probably will somehow unite us and give those below to participate and additional boost but it does the doping issue i'm sure more than 90 percent of clean that i guess but if. we support you and i'm sure you have enough patience together we will do it. ok moving on now boris johnson's conservative party won a resigning majority dominating performance in britain's historic general election on thursday as for the opposition leaders and liberal democrat party both seeking new leaders while north of the border the scottish national party almost swept the board in terms of seats which. there are calls for an independence referendum from
11:09 am
the u.k. here's how the respective party leaders reacted to a dramatic night of the results in. the proud to say that members of a new one nation government 8. people's government will sit tight from constituencies that have never returned a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have a well we mandate from this election to get it done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st will not lead the party in any future general election campaign i will discuss with our party. to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward the stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland
11:10 am
a choice over their future that monday says that it is for the scottish parliament nort a westminster government to decide whether and when the should be a new referendum on independence well let's just crunch the numbers here there are 650 seats in the house of commons meaning a party needs 326 told majority of the conservatives did 365 seats they achieved labor $203.00 of their lowest result since the thirty's or brookstone it up and. thus they saw the general election in just 4 years so how did we end up on this rollercoaster again it was well my friends it's the usual suspect yeah you guessed it the. threats to play it turns out that decision taken by those 17400000 people in june 26th the e.u. set off a chain reaction that's led to this moment but i'm guessing ahead of myself let's
11:11 am
start from the beginning the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different part of my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place ok so now we're down one prime minister let's see how the next one fat a couple of weeks later to resume a took on the and then doable role of finding a way through the process that wilderness and she was very clear about her goal bricks it means bricks it wrecks it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it the original bricks it does. line was set for march 29th teen oh those early days of optimism but this is possibly the most divisive political issue the u.k. has faced in recent memory m.p.'s have never felt so important all powerful so it's unsurprising that may was thwarted at every turn by those less willing to cut ties with our european friends fed up she decided to go in and call
11:12 am
a snap election in june 2017 we need a general election and we need one now but it was a gamble that just didn't pay off the conservatives lost the majority they'd been counting on tide already $2.00 also taught at this point every single. your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds but disappointment in the polls was really the least of may's problems the opposition tried to get rid of her own m.p.'s tried to get rid of her and then she said she'd get rid of herself if only they'd back deal which they didn't and it just ended up being too much from a who decided to finally hang up put heels i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the
11:13 am
country i love ok so now we're down to prime ministers whose our lucky introducing boris johnson former mayor of london a bit of a gaffe man just like his predecessor he was absolutely adamant that he'd be the one to get it done can you make a promise today to the british public that you will not go back to brussels and ask for another delay to practice it yet and so you've done and would you like. ditch to his credit he's really gone for it he was sick of parliament blocking his ideas so dissolved that. the topple the dissolve so that he went to the e.u. and negotiated a deal which parliament defeated and then be forced to class and not that breath extension which really really really didn't want to do but to do anyway and then he just decided enough is enough so essentially taunted the opposition party into faith and not have
11:14 am
a general election in order to quote get it done which my friends i think brings you up today as. we saw some experts and politicians from across the u.k. for their views on the election results and possible consequences to. now boris can go into a meeting to negotiate and the you can be certain that what's agreed in that meeting will actually get through parliament the big problem that we've had so far is really any suggestion that was made seem to run into this blocking wall in parliament who were determined to vote against just about everything the labor party used to say they were voting against against different solutions as a general election then they voted against an election as well as a small force i think is the sentiment of the people of scotland not based on the views of any one politician this period to the sentiment of people scotland has been moving gradually and no rapidly towards independence but at least an
11:15 am
overwhelming view that scotland should have the right to determine its own future that is the chain suck and status that is the better system will force the a movable object is bought as johnson though it may well be that. as johnson can put these things out in the day can hold back the floods generally speaking that sort of politics gives out eventual e. and i would have my money is on the other system will force as opposed to the a movable object in terms of standing the test of time and of course of the last 2 years the unionist political electoral map. it was ended as a result of this election unionist political representation in the north has been reduced to a minority and not quite safe mick and the context not only of the bracks issue but also with respect to the unfolding constitutional debate and ireland north and

11:20 am
a brave face despite knowing the un palatable truth about the afghan war. hundreds of thousands dead trillions of dollars lost generations traumatized but you know what nothing good comes easy nothing in afghanistan we helped liberate an oppressed people. and we will continue helping them secure their country rebuild their society and educate all their children boys and girls. all that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is within reach and we're doing a tremendous job. and as you know a big part of the job is isis certainly the biggest and al qaeda and we. we've got them down very low numbers you didn't need to be nostradamus or clairvoyant to know that someone was telling bull it's just logical fallacy you can't keep fighting the
11:21 am
same guys for 20 years and claim the jewel winning but then appearances must be kept up it's important that everyone thinks you're winning right up to the moment you admit you lost why well it's obvious no one has the remotest clue would trying to do here we didn't have the focus notion of what we were undertaking there is a fundamental gap of understanding of the front end of the stated objectives and grew lines in the military and the lack of understanding of the resources necessary and we'd never have known if it hadn't been thousands of secret and classified documents on afghanistan stuff from the white house from the pentagon the un and the various n.g.o.s well we would have known it's pretty damn obvious that the war is going terribly but who says mouth and all that it is worth considering what the president the deficient said and what they actually believed when i called our

11:23 am
and for the people that don't buy your baloney get a hope in there as well thanks to the courage of these military and civilian personnel a nation that was once a safe haven for al qaeda is now a young democracy where boys and girls are going to school new roads and hospitals are being built and people are looking to the future with new hope also poor in money into huge infrastructure projects to obligate money that was appropriated to so we could spend it through building infrastructure in ways that have again instant could never sustain or even the use in some cases if you're a nato country taxpayer i honestly don't believe you can comprehend how much of your money was poured into this adventure you 1st need to understand the sheer degree of incompetence that these leaked documents show imagine for example
