9:00 am
ah, holly, also here in moscow in our headlines, a whistle blow reported the british medical journal claims. there was serious flaws of the testing of phases covey vaccine. while us authorities have been reluctant, apparently, to investigate them, a report coming up on unprecedented mew lo, relations between france and australia. take a further plunge after the leak of a text message, apparently from president mc crohn about the submarine deal canceled between the 2 countries. and despite hosting the u. s. climate summit, the u. k. own the green pledges come on to screw, to the as 40 fossil fuel projects look to get approval over the next 4 years. we speak to local residents anxious. certainly for one of them, at least to get the go ahead to step forward, really for technology and everything else. the mind should go ahead with netflix
9:01 am
and learning to it's here that prototypes that are coming in as well to assist and also educate to the kids in a very deprived area of the u. k. ah, i, they live from ortiz, world news, age q, rosco. this wednesday afternoon, we'll welcome to the program. it's kevin, i've been here for the next 30 minutes with the latest for you on the british medical journal that has published a whistleblower reports claiming there were serious flaws in phases cobit vaccine trials last year. the research behind the claims says she was fired the very same day. she raised her concerns and further she claims the u. s. authorities in her view or refusing to investigate with more his artes egos den off. so all these revelations, they have been published at the british medical journal, a very respected science paper, not some tabloid, that has a history or well is known for publishing some unverified information. and so that
9:02 am
article it details the allegations of a whistle blow of a woman who used to be part used to be with a contractor with a company called the entire via. so what does this vin tarver your firm has anything to do with the pfizer and it's vaccine you might ask? so it all goes back to the 3rd phase of clinical trials on the vaccine. some might argue that it's the most important phase. so pfizer to do the these trials, it hired a number of firms and a number of contractors. and so these contractor companies, they were responsible for the, for the trials in total phases. vaccine was tested on more than 40000 subjects. in fact, the numbers closer to 44000 and this vin 12, your firm was responsible to conducting trials on about a 1000 of people. and so this whistleblower, she claims that she has observed some negligence. some are well,
9:03 am
some violations during those trials. for example, according to the allegations, participants were placed in a hallway after that receiving the job. so instead of getting proper medical attention, they were somewhere in the hallway on top of that, she's accused batavia of a lack of timely follow up on patients who showed some severe symptoms which could be interpreted as well. side effects of the vaccine that they're using. the word or the british medical journal is using the word adverse events in relation to the symptoms to these will potential side effects. also protocol deviations will not being reported according to the allegations. the vaccines were apparently not stored at proper temperatures, and this is crucial for 5 for the 5 the vaccine because, well, it has to be stored the very particular temperature, a very low temperature. this is something that makes the transportation of this vaccine, particularly challenging. also on the whistleblower reported mislabeled laboratory
9:04 am
specimens and apparently vent avia targeted those members of staff who will try to blow the whistle and try to bring to light these are, these discrepancies are these instances and the. 2 whistleblower saying that she was victim over such targeting that she was fired after she tried to bring to light these allegations. so when, according to her, the company or when these allegations 1st fell on deaf ears or within the company, she assembled them. she put them together and sent them all to the da, the u. s. agency. governmental body responsible for giving the approval for the emergency use of vaccine. and this is the response she got herbalists. within hours, jackson received an e mail from the if da, thanking her for her concerns, and notifying her that the f. d. a could not comment on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f da inspector to discuss her report,
9:05 am
but was told that no further information could be provided. she heard nothing further in relation to her report. well, given what we've just had, it could have been world seen as an optimistic sign for this whistleblower in our company. the old brother the empty air getting back to her the very same day. and obviously she comes across as a very concerned person. and on top of that, all of this happened in september last year, which is important because that's before 5, the phases vaccine got the approval of the, of the a. so, well, the only logical assumption that would be is that the of the a will look into these claims address them and well make a decision whether or not they were important are but in december, same year, the price of vaccine got. i got the, well it, it was recognized, it was recommended for emergency use by the, of the 8 and the of the a did not address any of the allegations have listened to the or to, apart from the article in the british medical journal. in phases briefing documents
9:06 am
submitted to an f. d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. to discuss pfizer application for emergency youth authorization of its cove at night in vaccine. the company made no mention of problems at the vent, obvious site. the next day, the sta issued the authorization of the vaccine. while i guess the only the only logical outtake from the story would be listened to your doctor before well, you know, putting anything in your body. and indeed, we spoke to microbiologist, doctor simon clark, of the case reading university who's concerned the allegations could well lower the public's trust in the vaccine. though, the problem potential problem with, with the out this article in the bridge medical journal, is that it will affects all, could affect public confidence in the vaccines when really shouldn't mistakes do happen. i. but it's important to, to, to acknowledge that when you know a mistake is happened, you report it new, acknowledge it,
9:07 am
and deal with it. this could happen with any that said, not just relaxing. people should remember that many, many millions of people around the world have this vaccine and it's effective and it's safe. we also reached out to, to pfizer, to vent avia and to the f. d, a to come into the delegation so far, none of them of responded. relations have taken a further down term between australia and france. it comes out for a personal text message discussing the french australian submarine agreement and attributed indeed to president micron with leaks to the press. with the paras, his envoy, the camera, even branding in a stab in a back that the seat was intentional. and because there was far more at stake and providing submarine, because it was a common agreement on sovereignty seal, it was a transmission of highly classified debtors. the way it was ended was plainly as
9:08 am
tab in the back. well, as the situation that's really gone from bad to nuclear france in australia, i've been pretty much at each other's throats since september after australia announced that it was pulling the plug on that deal a deal at france described as being the deal, the sale of a century to build this fleet of submarines. now at the time france said that when astray announced that in fact when it was doing is that pursuing a new deal with the us with the u. k. and canada, that it had been completely unaware of this and that essentially had the, the rug pulled from underneath it. even just a few days ago, president micron had suggested that the australian prime minister scott morrison had lied to him outright. i do see when, when we have reason you have to be to have to behave in mine and consistently with i don't think i know statements that when my questioning,
9:09 am
astride is integrity and the slurs that have been placed on australia. i'm not going to call that on behalf of australians. i can deal with whatever people throughout me, but astride it has a proud record or when it comes to our defense capability. now this is saying that people in glass houses shouldn't throw, shouldn't hurl rocks and australia is clearly fuming over those comments from president macro, which made directly to the press in english. now it's decided to come play at that game and apparently has released a text message that mack on sent to morrison just a few days before the ending of that deal was announced. now this text message suggests that president mack, on which means the eliza and the government did actually have an inkling that there was a problem with this deal and that it could be going under. if you thought things couldn't
9:10 am
have gotten worse. well, you would be wrong because they clearly are unraveling at a furious pace. at the moment that leak has seen paris pushed the red button with the french ambassador who had been briefly recalled from canberra as a result of this row. not mincing his words. seat is an unprecedented new law in terms of all to proceed in all so in terms of truce and trust, you dont be able exists on personal exchanges of leaders. we're allies but babies gesture confirmation that we were never seen as an ally font is clearly aghast. about this situation, the idea that there could be a leak of messages sent from one leader of a nation to another, has completely baffled, shocked and disgusted officials here. and it looks like this issue between france
9:11 am
and australia could about to be causing even bigger problems for australia. we know that the country is due to have trade talks with the european union. they've already been postponed as a result of this route. if those talks do go ahead, i guarantee you that there will be a new rift, and that time it will be between france and brussels. a climate of fear vertes, the chilling description of life inside the u. k. national broadcaster, the bbc from the latest investigation, brother daily mail. the newspaper spoke to several employees including a former senior bbc manager. their messages that doing journalism is a challenge when you have to look over your shoulder with fighting our own culture wall in the corporation. you live with the realization that if i put a foot wrong, the mob will descend. that is a huge level of fear within the organization with people thinking the going to be
9:12 am
the next to get monster. when a saw off come the board causing regulate tree body, they're afraid of 5 internal sauce. net labs. he filled the holden to the climate of whoopin as i'm getting the p. c. valid rights. not only a story is being changed or adapted, but sama, partly even being dropped. but why does it leave the state board cast as journalism and free presses a hall? this is a night man will and very, very bodily for the bbc. literally there are people who think we should stop bunning words, they don't lie compelling viewpoints. they don't like that. a lot of things we hear in journalism that we don't agree with, that's the whole point, isn't it? while the baby see says it's editors have a responsibility to think, diversity of opinion. it's a slippery slope for some janice, who fear this so called mob rule if they got it wrong. take last month example where it publish an article suggesting a handful of lesbians felt pressured into sex by some trans women. well, 20000 people signed an open letter calling on the pdc to apologize dubbing it
9:13 am
transposed big and poorly evidenced was to be received most or was the b, b, c, misrepresenting the facts? well, the v b c journalist behind the very story apparently had to fight like hell against internal opposition to get it published. so surely they must have seen something coming, but have editorial lines to come so blurred. now that the bead may ends up like the new york times, with some even quitting the channel for goods. stories had chosen untold in a way to satisfy the nearest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. my own forays into wrong saying have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. they have called me a nazi and a racist janice of cause habiting tend to be impartial, sensitive and respectful. but when it comes to identity politics, the cultural war means whatever, turn the say or do they often can't get it right. as they will always offend
9:14 am
someone somewhere. we discussed situation with u. k. journalist brookeville clark. he said the purpose of journalism has always been to show all sides of the story, not just the pleasing one. my job as a reporter is to basically park away to one side, my political views, my views, social hues, whatever and report what is happening and report the story. and in that case, you have to make sure that both sides are given. you see both sides of it, you get a wide range of opinions when you put you fill together all your, all your documentary together and i think that distinctions been lost. and that's the problem with this ultra woken us is that there are these issues where there is no consensus. a lot of the time, it's almost like it's a case now when you can't have that opinion, that's outside the parameters. things of train. britton's changed and you shouldn't have to reflect that, that we really need to have put, you know, the, the widest possible opinions out there and not seek to,
9:15 am
to sort of restrict our coverage, basically only taking only taking the one is going to pass the hour of your watching around the world. thank you for checking the scenes, national me and the team, and kevin, no one that was appreciated. this is ahead. a california judge dismissed his claims that big pharma companies contributed to the epidemic of prescription drug abuse in the states. it's a game changer may be, we look at why after the break ah, mom went out. so thing wrong when i just don't hold any you have to see out the scene because of the applicant and engagement equals the trail went so many find themselves well, the parents we choose to look for common ground.
9:16 am
oh, driven by tremendous shaped bass concur centers with airs sinks. we dare to ask i believe i st. oh,

again promises to protect the earth forests. ambitious goals of let 0 by 2050 and giving cash to south africa to help it and its reliance on coal. the u. s. climate summit in scotland this week up to its pledge, the de save the planet with britain's prime minister boris johnson. taking the lead, although that said the u. k. does not currently appear to be holding back on its particular fossil fuel projects. case in point, a recent report reveals that round 40 plans are currently seeking approval in the u . k. over the next 4 years, which if approved with nearly tripled countries, yearly greenhouse gas emissions mean timeless, a particular ongoing dispute over proposed new coal mine in the north west of england. and what bars johnson doesn't want to support it, t o doesn't actually support it. let me get this right. he also says on the flip side, it's not his job to get involved. locals though. say they desperately need the project . the mind should go ahead. it will be mined in the safest,
9:18 am
cleanest drainage where it can possibly be doing tons of being explored for the 1st coal mine to be opened in the u. k. in 30 years, given the coastal town of white haven in northwest england. just a 140 miles north from here, the cop 26 summit in glasgow is in full swing. the u. k is of course, hosting that some critics say it sends out the completely wrong message for the hosts to be giving the green light to this coal mine. while at the same time preaching a green message to the rest of the world, the u. k. government has decided not to intervene with the towns of opening and brand new english coal mine. this really shows the true meaning of so called net 0 . 2050. these vague and sufficient targets long into the future basically mean nothing today, but contrary to what some expect, given fears as a potential air pollution, the locals are quite happy to have it. many of them think it could spock a much needed economic revival step forward, really, for technology and everything else. a chip issue, my new nadia and i know to many,
9:19 am
many years now i saw gone. we do need jobs in the area. it's not just some money to see other prototypes that are coming in as well to assist and also educate the kids in a very deprived area of the okay. and that's what's needed to drive the future to drive education and support the kids. a local campaign is in support of the mine say that coca cola, which is used to manufacture steel rather than generate energy, is being unfairly maligned by green activists. this is just another piece of the puzzle, is green greenly we. we are an environmental area. we understand what the problems are when there's no d, i n a, there's an issue that is a problem. we've got nuclear, we've got winds, we've got a hydro of that will be common at some point in the future. and functionally, if we get this mind going to as a, we'll be taking a coca cola from over the so the transport it from america, which is couldn't, we've all been served on to think that john cutty seldom is that we shouldn't open
9:20 am
a mind when we're buying all the coal of it. it's a bit hypocritical west cumbria mining. the company in charge argues that the project will be the world's 1st net 0 mythological coal mine in the world. ministers of argued in favor of the project from an economic perspective. as well as an environmental one to a very small as i am, stand quite specialist, a form of coal that's being that would be produced there on will have negligible impact ons of the global coal usage. we need to transition our existing oil and gas sector to a d carbon ice platform. what others want to see is a complete eclipse and shutting down of oil and gas with 250000 jobs vanishing overnight. the u. k. government on the pressure from climate groups intervened and ordered an inquiry by a planning inspector local may, refutes any objections. however, saying coaching call from the mine would drive forward green energy project. he
9:21 am
also insists that the projects will revise the local economy off the curve. it am i think you've got to look at the united kingdom as a whole and we're responsible for just all the one percent of the entire world, carbon emissions on this. mine will british functional from north point one percent of that one percent. the mine will have a huge positive economic impact on the, on the area, etc. i chuckle meant investment. this is private money coming in. are you talking 160000000 pound into, to watch a relatively small community that i'll create 500 direct jobs that have with the spin off of 1500 supply chain jobs that will transform people's lives in this area to inquire results the jew at the end of the year, well after the climate debate has moved elsewhere, 1st, johnson said at cop $26.00 that he didn't support the opening of the mind. that he would leave it to the planning come to the side. an indication, perhaps of his own desire to not get dragged into a route with
9:22 am
a local community desperate for the area once again to see if he can make regeneration these early all tea in white haven cumbria. we spoke with an environmental jealous for whether or not the british government sticking to his pledge to drop fossil fuels. u. k. presidency of copies seriously undermined by the government phone actions in the united kingdom. government has agreed that it will not fund new fossil fuels by itself. however, as the united kingdom, financial industry, under financial industry globally, will be able to continue to invest in sulfur chills, investment by the united kingdom in global fossil fuels amongst to 15 percent of global investments. and that's where the united kingdom record is really terrible. in that it's center for global finance for fossil fuels. so this is the off there for our credibility of president of the of the cop concerns. this is new in of a possible power outages of mounting in spain. as the countries ministers claim
9:23 am
this little more than a month of gas reserves left it comes as algeria is unilaterally decided to cut off it gas supply to spain. crucially, through a pipeline crossing morocco, a 25 year transit deal was suspended without renewal over a diplomatic spot between the 2 north african countries. and although algerian authorities promised to provide more gas to spain, european politicians have already slammed the move, calling it blackmail manipulation for political purposes. meantime, spain's main gas operator today at least is john come public panic. the spanish gas system has higher levels of contract at natural gas capacity than in previous winter's, and is in a better situation than that of other neighboring countries. with the current situation, there is no indication of a lack of gas supply in the coming months or alaska alive thought on this from madrid. felix marino's, her trader, and our portfolio manager with our f trading. hey, thanks your time today. so n aghast they're,
9:24 am
they're the right to calm people's fears about this. how serious is the situation because of this spot between algeria, morocco is for a spain's concern mother, right? to say that the, this situation is not of debt low. i mean, just to pipelines, the one going to morocco and the one going direct from our director, maria. so space gas supply is not in immediate danger, but it does leave, is in a very vulnerable situation. very reliant on one single source, plus l n. g boats, which is, you know, there's a lot of problem with maritime commerce at the moment, and it does leave us in a very vulnerable situation. that's the problem. you go to pipeline crossing somebody else's territory. if it comes into a spot you've got, you've got trouble of me. what could the, the book, answer it this way? what could the worst possible implications be false, spain them? well, the funny thing is that spain actually has gas. this is really companies exploring of the cost of the canary islands for gas and were a contractor, a concession from the government of america. this is really
9:25 am
a diplomatic issue more than anything, but yet as if, if things get bad, if our, our jury becomes us, nothing to do this particular just by allowing it, that's nothing to do. you said you, you may have mentioned algerian company there, or you know that this whole spatters morocco, algeria, that's nothing to do with. it's a separate thing here. yes, this 2 pipelines, this one going direct from oh, dear to spain and is another one through the straits of 2 brought to which goes from algeria to morocco, to spain. that 2nd one, that one. good. one. great. the morocco is the one that includes down and that's about 12000000000 cubic meters of a gas a year. while the other one is smaller is a 1000000000, but don't yet, this is a blow to supply. and if the, how is this lack of supply going to be compensated well through boats, l n g boats taking gas to spain, but let's kind of for the price of the consumers here. yeah. but, but the, the situation with the boots is unreliable at the moment, as you know, contain
9:26 am
a boats and the oil boats are being stopped the ship to be stuck in many ports. so this has the potential to mob, ma'am, and to, oh, provoke, a lack of supply in the winter and winter's very close demand is going to go up to build. people need to heat the homes. they're not going to heated with solar yet. and are we still need the gas solid? worried about my wrangler at the moment? this a certainty of price is going up and there is a danger of lack of supply. oh, i learn and. and what's the government officially saying about how they get assault? the site or are they saying it's a private matter the following the play book that you know, there's no problem yet. and when there is a problem, they say there's a problem that there is nothing we can do about it. and then they'll say, well, it's too late now, so you know that they're not being very proactive about it, to be honest. and the 1st symptom of that is the fact that there is really, companies are exploring for gas in spanish waters in the canaries. and the
9:27 am
government is doing nothing about it. they're not even trying to compete with them . what about going to happen and to other members of europe mon, bearing in mind the said the european energy squeeze at the moment will that will are covered with any, any gas. you can have a good gas connections with the rest of your, most of our gas car gas from o jerry and from ships which will come from anywhere. but as i said, there isn't thing easy solution. we do import quite a bit of nuclear angie from france, but that's not enough. gotcha. portfolio manager felix murray on the line from madrid there. hope it's not too much of a cold winter and things get sorted out your and thanks been with us. thanks not to developing story that term we mentioned 1st off, last hour, plane crush. thank her. it's coming in for russia as a say military transport planes is crushed in the central ridge of red coats. few details tell were a bit more in 5 people and now confirmed at the 1st pictures are coming as you saying myself as i am, the aircraft went on in a forest,
9:28 am
partly near the destination airport. it had gone in to circle around before landing and disappearing from radar screens. not great weather there. as you can see at the moment, 5 fighters and rescue workers are, as you'd expect at the scene, it looks like they've been able to get that a quite quickly. at least we'll keep you posted on that. the weekly medical journal of the land sits published a study revealing the rushes, one shot covert vaccine. sputnik lights proved to be safe and highly effective. a correspond, danny armstrong reports on it. support is a is about sputnik line. 8 on that might sound familiar, and that's because it is equivalent to the 1st component of the sputnik v. m vaccine was put in the v is a to dose vaccines for make light will be a single dose out. it seems developed to tackle the rising world demand for license coley vaccines, especially in those countries with a deficit air of vaccines. now, there's 2 very important things to take away from this report. and the 1st is that
9:29 am
sputnik lie as a high safety profile. and the 2nd is the adverse reactions to the vaccine are either mild or moderate around 66 percent from mild adverse reactions to the vaccine around 5.5 percent at 4 moderate. now officially sputnik light was developed to find a vaccine that was an, an immune at a high immune genic vaccine. it was also cost effective and logistically sound to produce. now it seems to take all those boxes so far and, but just for more details on the science, we can hear little snippet that report. the composition of sputnik light vaccine is equal to the 1st component of t dos. put nick, the vaccine for which safety and immunity, misty, we're assess, a number of completed and ongoing clinical trials now. so what does all this mean? well, sputnik light can be administered as a single job job as i have a stand alone vaccine or a booster. and it's shown effectiveness in both of those roles against the delta
9:30 am
variant. it has shown a 70 percent effectiveness against infection. and that number is a little bit higher on 75 percent effectiveness in individuals on that 65. now, when combined with all the vaccines such as the astrazeneca vaccine, it has also shown a high efficiency. but when administered as a booster shot against the delta variant is 83 percent effective against infection and a little bit high at 94 percent effective against hospital lies ation. now aside from all those figures, the bottom line is the spot and quite vaccine. according to their support in the lancet and by the russian direct investment form, it can accelerate the pace of vaccination in russia. and of course, in those countries that have that have a deficit for those covert vaccines. yeah, tony, i'm strong, a huge need for more vaccine.
