which is obviously all about being a single cohesive union where everything is centralized all these individual member states splintering off and breaking ranks is actually quite humiliating and in a sign that it doesn't even really have faith in its own ability to handle this crisis on friday a spokesperson said that countries can independently acquire jobs approved by the block or not whether they're from russia from china or wherever else so we're clearly seeing his shift within the e.u. member states starting to lose faith and confidence splintering from the union when it comes to vaccines and this latest saga in slovakia showing as we've seen from the very beginning that not even vaccines in the middle of a global pandemic are immune from being politicized. a kick in the teeth of the british medical association is called the government's one percent pay rise for health care workers something unions that you say undermines the value of those who could keep the country lived during the crisis or despite the u.k.'s national

health service receiving an extra $500000000.00 pounds a year under the proposal it would still likely result in a real to pay cut for staff as inflation in the u.k. could hit 1.5 percent this year comes despite the government's repeated promises of rewarding from mind stuff. our n.h.s. is the b. team heart of this country 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 house that that fair reward i mean i guess the government would have to prioritize and i think nurses and 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 ratio one percent you know but what's that's not 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 about that but those have been in the middle of or haven't done so well and it just is critically underfunded. you know the government can afford lots of other things you look at all the contracts they've been giving to their friends the more leading british nurses union has set up a fund to prepare for possible strikes over the deal labor party leader secure stammers also dismissed the proposal saying coded heroes deserve better support but the british health secretary has defended the offer calling it affordable given the country's economic downturn we got the opinions of a u.k. think tank and a nurse about the proposal. well not please because one can say as nor accurate as consider nothing that nazis have done and any chase for us in general for this country gent in the course of the pending we've already had 10 years of my

the whale and they are working to. u.s. capitol police have requested that more than 2000 national guard troops remain in washington d.c. for another 2 months but with tensions remaining high after the january riots even just rumors of renewed violence seem to put the media and the police on age kalam often expects. 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.
10:17 am
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 me to your 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 will 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.
10:18 am
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 stand down this red. 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 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 fools the u.s. house of representatives even canceled their meeting later nancy pelosi insisted that the meeting was not cancelled just moved to an earlier time if in fact there's any trouble makers around and it made 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 i actually have
10:20 am
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 ministries in a position where they have to actually face the failures that they have had through almost only a month and a half of being in office people were talking about a $2000.00 check that's what they would. no i don't know where their checks 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 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 mainstream media's been claiming this blood drinking satanic pedophiles secret cryptic nazi
