6:02 am
a class debate on blasphemy in his family an hour hiding after receiving death threats he's apologized but has been suspended some local muslims are demanding that the school fire however a petition calling on the school to reinstate him has already garnered more than 65000 signatures while the u.k. department for education has defended the teacher it is never acceptable to threaten or intimidate teachers we encourage dialogue between parents and schools when he she has emerged schools are free to include a full range of issues ideas and materials in their curriculum including where they are challenging a controversial subject or they obligations to ensure political balance outrage over a similar case in france last october led to the brutal murder of some your party this was near paris he was a history teacher who was beheaded by a terrorist after each own cartoons of the prophet muhammad to his pupils.
6:03 am
uncles and one of our competitors was murdered because he touched our compassion it was the victim of an islamist terror attack. to india from christian concern among one sorry political and social commentator locked horns over the issues raised. this could be very easily turning into some kind of a powder keg and you do not throw that matches into such things we've seen in france and in many european countries the rise of the far right we've seen some 2 tiers of the right system pushing against islam pushing against muslims marginalizing them and it's open season on muslims courage attack them on free
6:04 am
speech basis and people make themselves up to be free speech martyrs or somehow muslims become inflamed or they won't fit in western values so what's most alarming here is that a teacher asked her to go into hiding with police protection because what he's done he's he's discussed a point of discussion about a cartoon and the why the subject of blasphemy he hasn't actually hurt anyone he hasn't actually even threatened any violence and yet there are obviously very real threats of violence against him so much so that the police to protect him and take his family his wife and his children into hiding i think that is very very concerning and i think we need to recover a sense of normality in a sense of people being able to openly discuss and educate people about these things and i've been around the block a few times and had this discussion a few times every time we've had this discussion on free speech and debate we have put down do worst of the ideas racism hatred we know it's not ok to be racist against muslims to make the argument is it alright to be racist or is this
6:05 am
racist we need to learn about religion that we need to learn about what people believe and we need to openly discuss them and so people and super about it let's be very clear about this that discussing a cartoon it's got about how it has nothing to do with basis and it's not racism at all and what's happening here is people are trying to shut down a discussion and using threats of plants when people judge. people who work with the english defense league you keep anti muslim interest across europe and the rest of the while to try and demonize muslims marginalize them would have enough you will not win the cultural debate. or is he ok to be poked fun at and be racist against muslims out of the lot of us read what else is and you don't get to be offensive towards us this is not the way a free society should work he should definitely be defended it's all he's done is raise a discussion people should be free to discuss things in class if we're not free to discuss things we have a de facto blasphemy law in the country which is being enforced by
6:06 am
a mob rule that threatens violence against people. there's another cultural debate raging across the english channel where a french left wing politician is under fire for saying white people should stay out of discussions on racism critics say their advance and yet another sign of how us star work culture is undermining french values to show a dubious ski has more. the empty wine debate has been stirred up once again here in france this time after a black politician waded into a row that's been raging over the student union which admitted it held meetings about discrimination that excluded white people. it exists it exists this reunions exists is no food reprove a member of the paris local authority and this standing in the coming elections has added her $0.02 she suggested white people could be allowed into those meetings but
6:07 am
only if they keep quiet. i'm not saying anyone should be banned from entering but they should stay silent and let others speak in issues that concern them her comments severed opinion sprung scrambles to deal with a rise in identity politics for those on the right this is seen as an unwelcome american import that's undermining universalist french valleys a form of personal culture in my region no resident should be discriminated against for the call of the skin there is no such thing as acceptable racism i will always be a bulwark against those who try to fracture our country others went even further saying that. the unit students' union with the stuff of martin luther king's knowing is. the king would be turning in his grave he who dreamed of living in a country where people would not be judged by the color of this scale but by the
6:08 am
qualities of their personality but audrey prove us wrong more gain support from some on the left including from the leader of france and by out who said that she had merely understood what it discussion group it is politicians have been more than vocal but what do ordinary people think is it. ok to exclude white people from a debate and if so is that racist you know well it's an absolute horror i don't know how people are going to legitimize such nonsense we should dismantle this racist remarks from scratch. in your for me it's not acceptable to screwed white people for meetings i view that as racist on of concerts as with i think it's perfectly legitimate to exclude white people from the meetings because it was their felicitous i'm france has always been a country which respects human rights and does not look primarily at the color of people's skin. just because they're on the breath and the numbers are not
6:09 am
personally concerned about racism but i think it exists see you know me let us shoot if it were the other way around if the national party or right wing m.p. said that black or arabic people should be quiet during an event dedicated to the victims of terrorism that's what also cause public outrage the entire political class all the media would just if i believed rail against this person and condemn him because it's racist france only sees 3 colors blue white and red it distinguishes between citizens only on their merits and not on their roots race or religion i think this is very serious obviously the statement by audrey paul why it's racist and should be universally condemned there can be no double standards here racism is universal unfortunately there are various forms of racism and hatred and we are faced with this everywhere. i grated fraud and
6:10 am
involuntary manslaughter that's what french pharma giant survey has been found guilty of in one of the country's worst health scandals and this case revolves around the diabetes and weight loss drug mediator it's believed to have caused at least 500 deaths through heart problems the pill it self a bit on the market for some time 33 years it was used by 5000000 people we heard from someone who took the drug and now has a prosthetic heart valve. you know when a person is ruined for 10 years when you we're a mechanical pretty sis and take medication for 10 years to live you can't think this is normal has been going on every day since i retired this is crazy fortunately i called my lawyer who i need right now he's always ready to help us as you can see i came here with my daughter because someone must be with me all i can do is drive 20 to 30 kilometers a day we didn't get what we wanted but my lawyer will continue to pursue this case . the manufacturer has been slapped with
6:11 am
a fine of almost 3000000 euro's leaving france's national medicine watchdog has been fined for delaying the holter of drug sales the agency acknowledge that it was partly responsible for the scandal becomes a big concerns of pharma companies allegedly lobbying government bodies servia itself says it was unaware of the adverse side effects until the trial is already begun but the french doctor who 1st discovered the fatal risks told us the company had been deliberately hiding vital information from patients. it doesn't remember. i have been fighting for 14 years for the fact to be recognized that an incredible fraud was committed by a large french manufacturer a pharmaceutical company with a good reputation which secretly released a strong poison on the market and was selling it for more than a decade and totally knew what it was doing it is difficult to find words to describe such actions this is called a crime namely aggravated fraud the fine they have to pay as a punishment is not very high but the amount that will have to be paid as
6:12 am
compensation from all the damage to millions of civilians affected by the fraud is still impressive about $200000000.00 euros so the total payments are negligible but the court's decision in general is frustrating it is not enough. canada has become the latest in a growing list of countries to suspend the astra zeneca coronavirus vaccine because of safety fears the country's immunization advisory committee said that the risks were too high to give the job to under 50 five's there is substantial uncertainty about the benefit of providing astra zeneca cope with $900.00 vaccine to adults under 55 years of age given that the potential risks associated with v.o.i.p. id crossing particularly at the low estimated rates. but just last week the country's drug watchdog it said the job was safe to use and it recommended people take it it did however update the label on the vaccine to warn of the risk of blood
6:13 am
clots the move comes following recent data from europe suggesting the risk of clots could be as high as one in 100000 although there been no reports of cases in canada so far we spoke to us dr about the potential risks of new coronavirus vaccines we really don't have good scientific evidence either that or there's more corruption in some government agencies than in others and they're more complex in interest more interest in denying that there are that there are bad side effects i think people need to understand that they're taking the vaccine at their own risk and the the manufacturers the distributors vaccinators everybody is amusin from product liability so if a person dies or has a crippling neurologic disease or some other and verse effect very little if any compensation will be available we have tested this only for a few months and we have not tested it in the population there are high it highest
6:14 am
risk so i think we're pretending you know a lot of things that we just really don't know and we can't right now because not enough time has passed. still to come as the migrant crisis of the u.s. southern border shows no sign of letting up the media restrictions at overcrowded attention facilities and they seem to be increasing public interest on this story after the break. the world is driven by a dream shaped by. the
6:15 am
cares thinks. we fear to ask. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development the only really i'm going to do exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
6:16 am
welcome back the world anti-doping agency is looking into whether it's u.k. branch is guilty of a cover up water wants to establish why british cycling was allowed to run its own inquiry into a rider who tested positive for a banned substance in the build up to the london olympics. he has the story. the united kingdom anti doping agency has now found itself right in the middle of what's being described and dubbed as the latest scandal in british sport so it comes as these allegations have now surfaced surrounding the investigation of an abnormal drug test all over cyclists during the london 2012 olympic games so much so the world anti-doping agency is now weighing in and launching an investigation some of the information provided to wada on this is of significant concern we have asked our independent intelligence and investigations department to look into this matter and to conduct you keen to do going to see further information well it's claimed that u.k. 80 which is of course the body responsible for policing clean sport domestically
6:17 am
allegedly allowed british cycling to conduct its own probe after this individual provided a sample with an absolutely on usual amount of nandrolone which is a banned steroid in an out of competition test plausible explanations range from health issues one end but other ends and explanations include contaminated supplements and that's exactly what waters investigation is all about looking at how likely any of these options really are of course as a reminder under the water code it would be up to u.k. a d. to conduct such a probe at the time however it's now understood that u.k. d. is for the issue can be resolved and is cooperating with water. we are working with the border to investigate claims relating to private testing carried out by british cycling in 2011 u.k. anti doping agency is examining archives to confirm decisions that were taken in 2011 followed due process said by wada now it's claimed that british cycling conducted its own testing absolutely privately and did not then pass on those
6:18 am
results to the u.k. a deal so now is saying it's reviewing all of its processes but of course given the length of time between 2012 an hour nearly a whole decade ago it's really making it difficult to connect the dots at this stage we are unable to give full comment on the story of this stage is the events took place over 10 years ago and none of the senior management team involved have worked for british cycling for some time we are reviewing such archived records that exist from this period and lou that is not a straight forward or quick process we will share the findings with the relevant parties well this is the 2nd scandal to sweep the nation for british cyclists this month earlier a former british cycling team dr richard freeman was found guilty of not only ordering a bound substance but knowing and believing it was to be used to dope right at the time back in 2011 now freeman has since been charged by u.k. deal with 2 antidoping violations and completely struck off at the british medical
6:19 am
register as a result as well so not looking too good then this month but of course the timing of all this is particularly bad with lesson 128 days to go before the tokyo games again is really bad timing considering our great britain has always been one of the more dominant nations nations in the discipline stacking up new murderous medals our various competitions now there is of course serious doubt now cast even in retrospect cast on the performances at the london 2012 olympics and other victories including other competitions like the tour de france. the migrant build a prolonged american. southwest border showing no sign of easing but the media is being denied access to detention facilities and it's prompted texas senator ted cruz to visit a local center for newcomers to see for himself just how bad conditions are however when the republican trying to document what he saw he was stopped by a woman who he alleges was
6:20 am
a political operative working for the by the ministration. but you were hired 2 weeks ago and you're instructed to ask us to not have any pictures taken these respected because the political leadership of the dia just does not want the american people to know even that they were here standing in the get in front of the pictures so you know that they were thinking the rules are arbitrary and there is i believe that in people i really like them but i want to fix this situation we are going to get an illustration you want a $400.00 responsible for these conditions now at this point the biden ministration continues to say what it is said all along which is that it is committed to transparency however when the time comes to actually let that transparency happen we have some pretty strong excuses coming from jen psaki of the white house spokesperson here's what we've heard we are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic we want to keep these kids safe keep the staff safe but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities and we're working to get that done as soon as we can so this is being
6:21 am
set up and you have access to everything once we get to see you ok just to be clear how soon will that be mr president i don't know. to be clear now at this point we've got some voices that seem to be determined not to portray what's happening on the border as a crisis this is a memo from the associated press about how to describe the situation we should avoid or at the least be highly cautious about referring to the present situation as a crisis on our own although we may quote others using that language while the associated press says it may not actually fit the dictionary definition of a crisis a recent poll taken among the u.s. public shows that 76 percent of americans believe the situation on the u.s. border is indeed a crisis the worst charge against them right now is mistreatment of these people these young people and children at the border someone claiming as jen psaki claims
6:22 am
transparency is what you'll get and dignity and. specht is what these people get and it's just completely opposite of that they're not in a dignified situation they've got thousands of people sleeping elbow to knee and be towed to nose you know stacked on the floor so tight they have to sleep on their side and they can't roll over and that's a complete embarrassment for the by the ministration they're not even testing those people and i'm sure thousands of them do have various viral loads and are bringing them across to infect ordinary americans who are not as yet completely vaccinated so that's another great danger that is being forced on the american people in the name of this fraud because they want this story off the headlines when you ask biden when the transparency is going to be delivered by his administration he says i don't know they're up to something else this is not a matter of trying to help impoverished people from from 3rd world countries because americans and reap the benefits of residents here this is not about that.
