about their own behavior once a false confession a stake in the case is closed nobody really can tell the difference between a good confession and one that isn't. in. this hour's headlines u.k. medical workers are outraged after the government offers them just a one percent pay rise. day that turned into a nightmare you speak to a passenger of an italian cruise ship bird on board coded outbreak led to 3 deaths an investigation into costa cruises is ongoing. he refused to inform us that there were cases of covert aboard the ship the day it tested positive there was no suspicion that. ill people refused to give us information. the u.s. capitol police asked the national guard to stay washington d.c.
for another 2 months the move comes as even rumors of violence leave the media and capitol police on a. good morning and welcome you watching international. first this hour a kick in the teeth that is what the british medical association has called the government's one percent pay rise offer for health care workers is something that. the value of those who quote kept the country alive during the covert crisis despite the n.h.s. receiving an extra $500000000.00 pounds per year under the proposal it was still likely result in real terms pay cuts for staff as inflation in the u.k. could hit 1.5 percent this year and this comes despite the government's repeated promises of rewarding frontline staff. our n.h.s. is the b.
team heart of this country but it is important that we support our really just want to see our fantastic frontline workers paid properly we absolutely want to want to rock want to reward n.h.s. staff for what they've done i will be making sure that we fight to have that that fair reward i mean i guess the government would have to prioritize and i think nurses in the n.h.s. in general something that we should prioritize at this moment and i do think they should probably receive more than one percent but it's a symbolic one percent. but what's that's going to have any impact on the it just feels like a very it's like a very weak offer from the government it's not right you know there's always companies that made so much money off the back of. those have been in the middle of it haven't done so well and it energizes critically underfunded and you know the government can afford lots of other things you look at all the contracts they've
been given to their friends in the meantime a leading british nurses union is set up a fund to prepare for possible strikes over the deal labor party leader secures stars also dismissed the proposal saying covert heroes deserve better support but the british health secretary has defended the author calling it affordable given the country's economic downturn we've got the opinions of a british nurse and an expert about the proposal. but not least because one can say as nor accurate as can settle nothing that nazis have done and in each case workers in general for this country joining the course of the pandemic regarded it had taken years of my stay to tea and ask. me not that i think you can imagine any. anti demoralized the tango and the same people or some government i thanked we had at least a small band of all that i asked our government to include 4 is actually required.
by to be made actually szell. we are and the appreciation for his and the election unfortunately that was amassed opportunity for the government i think it's fairly understandable that public servants who are doing a really difficult job or a really difficult time would feel that they ought to be rewarded more fair in the u.k. he's a wealthy variation if we divided our resources fairly i think there'd be a lot more that you know would be ample scope for low paid workers and critical work as such the system gets a. more substantial pay rise it's not hard to find examples of how better more cold but. government administration or a fairer taxation system could find the money to give the nurses who've been literally saving lives keeping the country running through this period of a more generous offer. french authorities are investigating manslaughter
allegations against italy's costa cruises after 3 people died following an outbreak on the ship last year passengers of the costa magical plane they weren't told about suspected infections and were encouraged by the crew to use the ship's facilities. he spoke with one of the passengers. sequoias yes the cruise was a chance to go with my son who was 5 years old to see a magical world and discover the magic of the caribbean instead it was a nightmare i wondered how i would get out of this hell because if i didn't i was going to die stephanie dubois was one of thousands of holiday makers aboard the cost a magical last year when the covert pandemic hit for her and her then 5 year old son it was supposed to be a dream voyage instead passengers found themselves trapped aboard with little information or what was happening as the virus spread through the ship is all over
the refused to inform us that there were cases of covert aboard the ship that they had tested positive there was no suspicion but indeed there were ill people they refused to give us information and we got it from the media when we were near the coast and could get a signal they concealed it from us and they didn't let us protect ourselves they didn't protect us either health wise they didn't treat us very well and not at all humanely but also they avoided putting in place barrier measures which could have protected us i didn't ask koester what measures they were putting in place to ensure that your health was the priority. the tension increased very quickly we were in a state of tension and anguish which i just can't describe finally after huge days this virus spread strongly we asked them to cut the air conditioning and they refused we demanded that they open all the restaurants and all those outside so
that people could escape the crews as soon as possible to avoid gatherings they refused to put in place these measures the cruise ship was refused permission for passengers to disembark at several ports. only island of moxon eek now these images show this situation of. the island's authority told passengers that they had to stay confined to their cabins tensions were high and violence erupted. i was was was. was. i was a year later and french investigators approving allegations including manslaughter aggravated to seat and indeed injuring the lives of others against italy's costa cruises over permed it could be going team cases aboard that ship 3 passengers
from the virus the company denies the accusations saying that it and the crew acted on the scant information that was available about the forests the toyman considering that at that time the situation was a valving rapidly and the ship's medical team acted on the basis of the vailable scientific information and full compliance with the instructions of the health authorities and in constant coordination with them but the lawyer who represents almost knowing 100 passengers in the complaint filed in france told r.t. that that's not the case and you can see there was no more hand sanitizer it was replaced by water very clearly or it was either totally empty or didn't exist no security or health measures there were 3 restaurants and blood would be shut to there was only one open and there were $2300.00 passengers who came for lunch breakfast and dinner one after the other without health measures and he claims that
the company was fully aware before setting sail that there were troubled waters ahead even loyal to holiday makers he said that they had questioned whether there would be a tally in passengers on board as at that time italy had become the latest hub for the virus costing he says. sure at them there would be no italians award he said me they knew a week in advance that the crews could not last so yes it's true it was a strange health situation near the start or just a little in advance of the pandemic hence the concern of the french passengers to know if there were any italian passengers at this time it was a european country hit hard by covert and they wrote we have the emails and letters from costa which say no there will be no italian passengers yes they lied and they should have cancelled this cruise because they knew what could happen the passengers who have brought these complaints now have to wait to see if it will be
taken for stephanie it's already been a long and tough journey but she's determined that costa cruises should be held responsible so that even ski auti legal. u.s. capitol police have requested more than 2000 national guard troops to remain in washington d.c. for end of the 2 months that we turn to is remaining high after the january riots even rumors of renewed violence seem enough to put the media around police on edge elam orpen explains. it is no exaggeration to say that there was serious panic in the lead up to march 4th a new threat against the u.s. capitol a possible militia plot to storm the capitol as early as tomorrow we are watching this threat stream the information social media other sources with respect to this particular day march 4th federal law enforcement is on full alert after warnings
from intelligence officials that another attack on the u.s. capitol could be a minute preparations were serious hundreds of national guard patrolling the area capitol police released a statement on wednesday warning possible plot to breach the capitol by an unidentified militia group a local businesses have warned tenants about possible protests you might have gotten the impression watching meteor reports that u.s. officials were bracing for the purge as citizens rushed to get home before commencement. we advise you to get off the streets as quickly as possible it'll soon be a war there. so what happened when the fateful day finally arrived nothing what does it take to put the u.s. government on edge apparently just some lame internet rumors it all started with q. and a on conspiracy theorists on the internet they said that the inauguration of joe biden was a big false flag and that the pentagon was planning to install donald trump on march 4th the original inauguration date in u.s.
history well obviously that did not happen now the main conspiracy theory of cuban on is the idea that a group of satanic blood drinking pedophiles have seized control of the u.s. government and media apparatus and that donald trump and his allies are waging a heroic covert war against them behind the scenes some of blame donald trump for not denouncing the militia groups and cuban on conspiracy theorists who rally behind him you know the president has a responsibility to tell him to stay down this road. is credible it's real human on conspiracy theories and delusions aside joe biden won the election he has been inaugurated so why is the country still on edge and blaming the former president there were no violent actions or big protests on march 4th but law enforcement was on high alert the whole thing was taken very very seriously and the department continues to work with all of them. and is based on the intelligence that we have
the department has taken immediate steps to enhance our security posture and stuffing for a number of days to include much the fool the u.s. house of representatives even canceled their meeting later nancy pelosi insisted that the meeting was not canceled just moved to an earlier time if in fact there's any trouble makers around and it makes sense. i don't think anybody should take any encouragement that because some troublemakers might show up and that we change the whole schedule now we just moved in a few hours there's now a call to extend the national guard presence around the u.s. capitol just in case internet liberals have decided that a secret nazi conspiracy has taken over the republican party their proof the shape of the stage at sea-tac apocalyptic scenarios are now starting to become a regular aspect of american political discourse and i actually have
a lot of conservative friends and a lot of populous conservative friends and a lot of trump supporters. and none of the had talked about this until the mainstream you brought it up rumors only cause panic if the rumors are given air by the right you know media i just think it's a justification to not put this in a position where they have to actually face the failures that they have had almost only a month after being in office people were talking about a $2000.00 check that's what they would. no one knows where their checks are that i want to hear about that where the money or where the health care you know what's going on in our economy right now is it you know those are the things we don't see anyone once again holding biden accountable in the same way that we expected to be out accountable i promise you nobody going to the capitol to the day the me media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret cryptic nazi symbols
false flag inaugurations all of this would make a great hollywood movie or netflix mini series but in the real world america seems to have some pretty big problems like crumbling infrastructure unpopular wars and cultural polarization however our political discourse seems to be stuck in fantasyland caleb mop and artsy new york. so to come a u.n. report suggests around 17 percent of all the food produced goes to waste some place the blame squarely on the doorstep of the food industry explain all after the break . join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then.
the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person or those with. no dares thinks. we dare to ask. why the 21st century america is exhausted it's just tired and it doesn't have anything approach that in march but china after being on the margins for so long does have something to prove and they do have the capacity and they are putting shoulder to the wheel and they are working at.
$930000000.00 tons that's the amount of food wasted by households in the service industry globally according to research by the un environment program according to that report 17 percent of all food produced is thrown away which is responsible for about 10 percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions more than $570000000.00 tons of food waste comes from households so that. businesses governments and citizens around the world have to do their part to reduce food waste let us all shop carefully creatively and make waste in food anyway socially unacceptable economist and author richard both believes that the food industry is partly to blame. you can produce food as a national social community the objectives on you could
make it something like. running up public park or providing public education or providing public health care in other words it is a human rights it is a basic requirement of civilized society and so it gets the priority that properly goes with that we don't do that in the united states and in many other countries either instead what we have in the united states and in other countries is a profit driven food system if we did it differently if the priority was take the food we can produce to feed the people who are in our community we would have taken steps law would know to make sure that the food is properly produced properly packaged properly process and properly consumed that whole it's
not difficult and teach people out and do it to provide them with the equipment and they would pay for itself very quickly in a better fed healthier population. denmark has stripped almost 100 syrian refugees of their residency permits saying that they should return home now major parts of the country are considered safe is the 1st european nation to make such a move we have made it clear to the syrian refugees that their residence permit distemper or it can be withdrawn that protection is no longer needed. and the government says that the 94 migrants will be sent to danish deportation camps but won't be forced to leave from there in the hope they'll actually want to go back to syria on their own accord the moves of the ruling parties aim to have 0 asylum seekers apply for residency human rights groups so lashed out at the move saying it
goes against people's rights to be protected from persecution he spoke we shall be political economic analyst he is concerned about denmark's approach. there's a sort of movement taking place in denmark and a question in europe where right wing parties and nationalistic parties have come into power and denmark is. having a sort of center right government at this moment and even the opposition is even more her keen to send the syrian refugees back and of course add the problem is how the bird deniz government manages the whole situation rather than send them to you know sort of return if you like a refugee camps and prefer to go back to syria but the reality is that the situation in syria is significantly better than it was you know even 2 years ago
the government in damascus has gradually liberated most of the country from these wretched. isis people who are creating havoc in syria. sooner or later a lot of the refugees whether they're living in denmark germany or united kingdom me want to go back. pope francis has called for an end to extremism and violence in iraq during his historic 1st visit to the country the leader of the catholic church hopes to rally the country's christian population which is dwindled after years of war and oppression and karen has a story. pope francis has embarked on a historic visit to iraq defying security affairs and the pandemic in a bid to comfort one of the world's oldest and most persecuted christi and communities reporters ordered me to settle to a war i am coming as a pilgrim as
a penitence pilgrim to implore from the more forgiveness and reconciliation after years of war and terrorism to break from god the consolation of hearts and the healing of wounds. as well as highlighting their plight the pope's 1st international trip since the pandemic hit is aimed at reassuring iraq's dwindling number of christians and fosdike interreligious dialogue such high expectations but perhaps i'm realistic to believe this trip could bring about any real progress however 2 decades ago it could have been a very different story as a result one of the world's oldest christian communities and seen its numbers it plummets from 1500000 in 2003 to the current 175000 with little option many have fled the country to escape the religiously motivated violence that has plagued the country since the u.s. led invasion in 2003 tens of thousands were also displaced when the islamic state
overran northern iraq in 2014 destroying churches and seizing property they were faced with a choice pay a tax convert leave or face death western countries are not oblivious to the situation the u.s. has provided humanitarian aid when islamic state terrorists overrun parts of the country there was no where on is no one to turn to and the bleak reality is the pope's trip comes at a time when it's not on the fathomable that the christian faith could disappear from iraq and tiley well the pope's visit bring hope to christians probably will it change their lives probably not it's not going to help the christians. tiriel or directly because we are really in a very corrupt political and economic system no doubt about that he will hear nice words but when it comes to day to day issues no i think that's a different story western countries were not oblivious to the situation the u.s.
has provided humanitarian aid but there's of course have done nothing to stop the torment. fashion brand boohoo a staunch supporter of the black lives massive movement appears not to be quite so work when it comes to its own employees human rights groups have accused the company of paying stuff below the minimum wage and the poor working conditions during the pandemic despite promising to clean up its act but if retailer could be banned in the us. the evidence so. slightly is quite compelling i think it will be a wake up call for british institutions about how they're handling more than slavery and forced labor.
really does she don't consume jail you can and i can do a little jellyfish deal in the stand up and i was in that equal distance as i was i mean what if it was a stale snake i. guess i don't plead and sell him to the mule with that devotional moodiness this is this is us oh dash it all does sitting on. the. max kaiser this is the kaiser report so much to get to the world is just going crazy good right a stacy depends on who you ask here is ahead by in that kind of defines the
perhaps china's century upon us china gave us diplomats anal covert tests what weight what one read the whole have line read it china gave us diplomats anal covert tests and error american officials say they were supposed to there are exactly what so wait a minute hold on hold on hold the presses. chinese officials gave an american in a role he is able called it is that what i'm hearing that's what i just said so american diplomats in china received these coping test by chinese officials and parents instead of putting it in their nose they put the swab somewhere else and i just felt like you know after if you look at what's happened in america over the past few decades is is humiliation right of the ordinary person of the workers of the deplorable is as hillary called them and you saw you know 70000 people die from
overdose every year that is part of this humiliation of having all their you know their entire livelihood their entire culture destroyed in former you know rust belt america the former heartland of america the manufacturing centers so they've been humiliated the american population has been humiliated for a long time and because of that humiliation of course china's risen and as a huge superpower because of all the wealth creation that they do for the world and now we have the diplomats of the last like the last remnants of empire. there are a and they're now being humiliated that's one way i like to look at it shoot i know there'd be fallout from that a blue ghraib prison scandal for not too many years ago but now we got our diplomats being able improved over there and a chinese territory this is really escalating quickly the humiliation factor is for sure and i just saw the documentary a series.
