german company and joint developer of the pfizer coven vaccine, bio and tech have plunged 20 percent. it follows several setbacks, including a whistleblowers report and the british medical journal. pointing to serious flaws and last years, vaccine trials, artillio, trego can tell us more. how many people do you know, who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety? well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career, but had never experienced such a healthy skill to work environment. as we've been tabi on pfizer trial,
9:08 pm
i don't think it was good clean dates of the employee said of the dates of ins. harvey generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firm's tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower, who worked for ven tabio for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over. quite a list of issues including things like this. the the the, the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents,
9:09 pm
photos, and audio recordings to backup our concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contract or on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency in charge the food and drug administration? no about any of that. we didn't know is jackson received an email from the f d a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f d. a could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f. dea inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no, or at least were notified that that lead to any oversight of the company. by the
9:10 pm
regulator. the answer is no. on the contrary, the watch dog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in 5, this briefing document submitted to an f. d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems. vince obvious site the next day to f. d. a issued the emergency use authorization of the vaccine . a few more details, but right disconcert a summary of the a inspections of pfizer vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent army. and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authority ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been tabi, up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children and young adults. a cobra,

1900 trial involving pregnant women, and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic in a global pandemic. we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty. we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being. the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospect in the future. ok, not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical jain. but what i want to be confident about is that someone confident whose job is to have these trials under control actually
9:12 pm
does his or her job to the fall. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags . we contacted pfizer and ben tar via for comment on the claims as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. but they have yet to respond to our inquiries. dr. n. g r, a consultant physician for britons and a chest thinks vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate greet. but it has, for me, this is by no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that their commercial interests is compromising bay clinical and research objectivity and judgment toward this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of science. i think that of course could of a applied more people to the trial. they could have an adequate stop to run the trial in appropriate way and as a constant commercial pressure, even with a sub contractor to make profit. so, to have fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners in this way, commercial interest is pressuring, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the

drug such as in canada, have ruled that a comedian who joked about a disabled teenage singer did not breach the youngsters rights to dignity. comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of grow a growing backlash against cancel culture. i'm like, oh j. i one. this is a vest, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i would want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that the child as a 13 years old to just think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should guy. now 24 year old singer jeremy gabriel was born with a birth to fact that causes scull abnormalities he found fame in 2006,
9:14 pm
and even performed for pope benedict. some years later, mike ward began mentioning gabriel's disabilities in his performances and defended his act by saying that people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. the rules family filed a human rights complaint, but candidates highest court said the singer was targeted not because of his disability, but because of his fame. and while mr. ward received support from the comedy world, others still believe jokes must face consequences. we did have a lively conversation about it here on our tea with a panel guess. you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister word comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things, but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it
9:15 pm
a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. god to charge in and find a guy tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me. and you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before, but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he. the only thing that from with is it looks
9:16 pm
a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy. he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if he wasn't addressing his disability. he was suicidal after that. and you come be free to say whatever you want him be buying renting every way you want in the and you know, in your job i'm going to ship a nurse. if tomorrow i teach my disable, you know, employee like that, i would go to court to because doubt consequences for every one of us though what we do in our life, okay, it's not only speech is an action, no one saying there should be consequences. what the argument is, the consequence should not be, you being find tens of thousands of dollars and not be a lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that. i'm a lot of comedians and,
9:17 pm
and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. ah, but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important, and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job may to be an attempt to save the world from climate change. but the huge cop 26 summit in scotland is not impressing gretta thornburg. the swedish activist lashed out at the event while addressing crowds at the fridays for future march and glasgow. it is not a secret that comp 20 sakes is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot solve a crisis with the same methods that goes into it. in the 1st place,
9:18 pm
protests events have also been held around the world to coincide with cop 26 with demonstrators echoing gretta thornburg's call for those in power to take action. ah. with with the car $26.00 conferences now and it into its 2nd week and kicking off the event, the british prime minister warrant of a doomsday scenario. while the american president vowed the u. s. would lead by
9:19 pm
example in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070, although that's 2 decades later than most had been hoping for. while there were also calls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help with their transition to other energy sources, it is my point and on that issue are t. saskia taylor has been looking at how complying with emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels help 26 his hair and that's going to save us from doomsday. i've a $100.00 wild lead as a setting out that goals for the future. and then big ones, stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions and or hey o electric enough teaching nature like a toilet. we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and
9:20 pm
we need to act. non client change is already ravaged oral. we only have a few for us to raise or envisioned to raised me to task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for both chad and co to promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round the world saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is a car we leave. if they reason any call, we don't leave one pass and an eastern india set up, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on that pates. the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing large a industrialization stage, then you know what? we've gone one space our time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their
9:21 pm
societies out of poverty, coal consumption and coal as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact. or sometime, in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for them. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is until i equity and against climate justice demands for net 0 emissions. for all countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just that developing nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be punched into poverty. now it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy gonzalez? far away? the top 10 percent of countries consumed 20 times more energy than the bottom 10
9:22 pm
percent. and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that, a co op 20 sex, and remember, when times were tough, winter was coming. a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a dirty source of energy when they begged for the tops to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far way and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution, and ensure the world we all must share. a cleaner, safer health is planet. we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not
9:23 pm
a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the planet, realize what that p off from the slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently. there's some countries that actually have small populations but are consuming a lot of energy and everything. a lot of are capita carbon. people can see all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they are really going to be themselves of it from coal, and i don't think that maybe realistic targets will not make the 2015 about his account of it yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't believe a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries,
9:24 pm
an end to us support and weapons for saudi lead, military offensive in yemen. that was a pledge made by joe biden back in february and fast forward to today though. and it seems like sales of weapons for defense purposes are fair. again, the u. s. is approved at $650000000.00 deal to supply the golf state with air to air missiles. it's biden's 1st major weapons agreement with saudi arabia, but the, but just the latest in a long line of lucrative american arms deals with the state. the u. s. s applied over 70 percent of saudi arabia's weapons since 2015 worth $64000000000.00. state department has ruled out the use of the missiles for ground attacks and said that the deal is in line with brightens, promised to help saudi arabia defend itself from iranian back, who the arab air attacks. however, it marks a significant departure from biden's rhetoric on the campaign trail when he labeled the kingdom a pariah. following the murder of journalists,
9:25 pm
jamal cas shoji. some also down to the deal will help bring an end to the devastating conflict in yemen. i thought. and he wore activist kennestone told us that the u. s. sending arms to the region is only going to inflame the situation. i'm when biden claimed on february 4th, that he, that the u. s. wish to stop saudi offensive operations in yemen. that statement
9:26 pm
rang hollow from the start, because if the us really wanted the saudi offensive war against yemen to and all that president biden would have to do it, pick up the phone and call re add to tell him to stop the war. and that would have been the end of it. the u. s. is supporting an illegal war against the people of yemen. the fact that the u. s. is ascending into this volatile region. this powder keg, even more weapons, is a recipe for disaster. the sale of these missiles to saudi arabia enables the saudis to be more and more reckless, because they feel that they are protected. by this i saw a quasi iron dome, kenya has reopened

a criminal probe into the horrific murder of a woman, allegedly by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped into a septic tank back in 2012. and her family believes that the details of the case were hushed up league. you the i did johnny recently learned that is the british army vault because there were a lot of cover out today. but we are glad that now think of being brought to light . my wishes the culprit to face the law because i had to be a burden that wasn't mine. i had my own children to take care of, though i was not employed, it has been a real struggle with the family of agnes when gero, when jacko. a canyon woman allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death, when jack, who was a 21 year old sex waka, any money to feed her newborn baby, and she was reported missing in march of 2012. 2 months later, her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed. there had
9:28 pm
been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier x confessed to killing her lou. i feel so sad as those in positions to help us that took so long. recently when the me death started erin, the story top and old one see that it's like agnes has just died. it has the been affected, her daughter, but we had to let her know what is going on. i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case. well, when i think of agnes, i remember how happy she was and she loved to sing it. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing. the person who killed agnes should face the law or because the charge was orphaned, has suffered a lot of bearing in mind. she was just 5 months old. even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k. defense mystery. it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming when activists in kenya,
9:29 pm
calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable. while the labor party here in the united kingdom say, the 9 year old deal without an investigation even being can sit, has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the soldiers involved, or no inquiring to why the minister of the funds failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelation to the tragic death of one jacko continued to become more sinister. it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need to her. i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us to fend for her young child. and it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years,
9:30 pm
but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into one jack, whose death officially closed at stores on investigations into more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be solved for angus. when jerry, when jack, who and her family chateau edwards dusty r t, london i, swatch in the weekly on rti international. you can join us again for another round of it in just about 30 minutes. ah. join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess in the world politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm.
