11:00 am
ah ah, this hours help headlines here one r t twitter faces up by raj of accusations that is doing the u. s. government's bidding. it's off of the social media giant, worked with a washington think tank and suspending, more than 3000 accountants from 6 countries for alleged states back to propaganda bouquets. a royal college of midwives apologizes for new inclusive guideline is describing mothers as quote, post natal people, a former and a chest nurse tells us a vocal minority has hijacked this conversation. is he yet to know, for example, of stem wool going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset the thinking of that ma'am base. and an alignment ruling,
11:01 am
a woman born with a spinal defect, wins her case against a doctor who 20 years ago failed to advise hub mother, properly about having children or guests debate the issues. because what i do now is medicine now in 20 years time, we made jewish. my action is the doctor has completely wrong. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody, shane, and i mean this is a sensitive why. i wish you would never been born. oh, hard saturday night here in moscow, just off to 7 pm. welcome to the program. this is our t international. so concerns are being raised over social network, twitters possible ties to the u. s. government. it's off to the tech giant suspended more than $3000.00 accounts. from 6 countries, including china and russia, over alleged state sponsored information operations,
11:02 am
twitter admits decisions on which accounts to suspend were made with the guidance of the australian strategic policy institute is a think tank that sponsored by u. s. government agencies, including the department of defense ortiz, daniel hawkins. now delves deeper into the institutes, activities. it's common knowledge that trusts in conventional media is falling. you know, when you ask someone where they get their news on, they reply, i don't watch tv. i'll do my own research or get my news off social media. that's fair enough. that least with normal news, you tend to know who's sponsoring it, be it's a government or corporation. and you can make your own conclusions. but when you see who's behind an organization claiming to be independent and non partisan draft in to help provide independent analysis to stop social media manipulation, world, anyone would have a few questions. it's not like the australian strategic policy institute hide the
11:03 am
fact there, sponsored by the u. s. government or some of the biggest names in the military. industrial complex. the long list is there for all to see is just when so much funding comes from the sources. one does wonder just how independent and balanced they can be. even former australian officials have concerns about the things thanks output echoed by some current lawmakers. surely it's fair to subject aspect funding arrangements to scrutiny. se receives core funding a $4000000000.00 from the department of defense. again, the thing thank makes no secret of its anti china stance and the list of works on their website. in fact, china is a key target of the organizations works from human rights in shin gan to chinese tech systems influence projects or this information in social media. many funded by the u. s. department of state and defense. their definition of independence may be
11:04 am
malleable to say the least. an a s p, i are good at what they do, at least for their defense, industry, sponsors. the numbers say it all since the think tank was founded 20 years ago. weapons manufacturers have collected tens of billions of dollars in government contracts prior to the cobit pandemic. the organization owes to dozens of events from bringing it together. key players in defense and politics. providing the opportunity for closed door discussions with government departments and agencies. the s p i is so heavily involved with foreign governments and political organizations. it's even registered with the australian governments. forward inputs transparency register. many were so pleased with the think tanks work. their funding to the organization has grown significantly year on year as have their funds from sponsorship and commercial revenue under the direction of executive director peter jennings. who is himself clear where the blame for increasing tensions lies. not rising south shawnasee,
11:05 am
posing china's authoritarian control in hong kong, threatening taiwan and japan on a daily basis. china is the strategic problem in the region and back to the point. the thing thank is now partnered with the social media joint, helping to decide and coordinate what information users have access to and what is sensitive so much for independent analysis and serving the public conversation is little wonder that some question whose interests does this really serve to stresses that his goal is to ensure the integrity of public conversation. while we spoke with alexandria, bruno an independent political analyst, he says there's so much more to it than that. there's a climate of tension. geopolitical tension already surrounding that. so it's not surprising that twitter is very happy to comply to the you the,
11:06 am
let's put at the u. s. mainstream or the deep state view. i'm not surprised at all that they cooperating with an institute such as the australian, and that's not the only one there. cooperating with the perhaps they chose australia to appear independent, but they don't expect independent advice. they're looking for the kind of view that reflects we ultimately be american view. how different is the trillion view from the american right now? considering that they have just joined our course, that institute is much more closely aligned to langley in virginia. where are you located? that it is to twitter users wanting independent information to the u. k. now where the royal college of midwives has said, sorry for its latest supposedly inclusive guidelines which make no reference whatsoever to women or mothers, but only to post natal. people responding to complaints the college called it an oversight, one former and
11:07 am
a chestnut that we spoke to. so it's not the union role to tell midwives what to think is perfectly healthy, is why they apologized because of the instantaneous backlash. health services sac her to be a safe environment for this normal process is natural process to happen. it is not the her college of midwives role to tell them. make wives how to think and, and i'm afraid that this is yet another example of stem wool going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset the thing king of that members. the midwives union withdrew the gender neutral guidance after that enormous online backlash in the instructions for an h o staff on how to put newborns to bed safely . they did not mention women at all. referring rather to parents and kara's. the guidance was supposed to be l g b, t inclusive, but it certainly didn't go down to well how can you possibly rise about pregnancy
11:08 am
and bus without mentioning women? that's deliberate, not an oversight. apparently the royal college, a midwife sized midwives need to call mothers postnatal people, not mothers, all women. so to all you ladies out there, you're a postnatal person, not a mother. i. right. how did the royal college of midwives forget about women? they had the sole reason you even exist. the former and it has nasa, rebecca butler again says that neither the general public nor the transgender community support this idea. people don't want to replace the word series, a very, very vocal minority, and a very effective act. this group in stone. whoa, who want to rewrite the rules by which we live? i don't know who they think they're appealing to, because the person in front of the midwife is
11:09 am
a biological woman. why the world college of midwives has chosen to adopt policies advocated by stonewall, is a matter for them to answer. but my point here is that the general public does not support base midwives do not support tate or actually neither does the transgender community. it is one organization that is pushing it to jan, does so hard and he's getting it very, very badly. a mother is a mother and the role of the midwife is to ensure the mother's safety and the baby's safety. and that is the end of that role. they should not be involving themselves in this so to ridiculous political posturing. well, meantime, a young woman with a spinal defect, how successfully sued her mother's doctor for giving her bad advice. 20 years ago before her pregnancy and alignment ruling,
11:10 am
the u. k. is high court agreed that his failure to tell her to take supplements amounts to negligence. now evie tombs overcame her condition to become a power show jumping star. oh, she has to spend some days at a time connected to tubes. the judge said that this could have been avoided if her mother had been told to take folic acid both before and during her pregnancy. in accordance with official guidance provided with the correct recommended advice she would have delayed attempts to conceive in the circumstances there would have been a later conception which would have resulted in a normal healthy child. the doctor in question hazard or not all the allegations saying he gave all the necessary instructions 2 decades ago. so we discussed what president the ruling sets with a pair of guests this case we're talking about was 20 years ago in the 2001 i think it was. and around that sort of time we too would probably have been giving advice off. well, if your diet is rich and go to cast it, keep that up, keep doing it. don't necessarily mean to supplement. so again,
11:11 am
it's really hard to judge what happened back in 2001 based on the standards we have today. can you really bring fun? you can, because it's up, but can you bring the case 20 years after so many poor afford? i mean, this isn't for linda mind where somebody was given, you know, a tablet needs. it isn't that kind of situation. this scenario shows that you're going to have a much longer time in the future to very clearly document the advice we give. and more importantly, actually the advice that we don't get. so it's kind of a significant plan to put on time. one of the other big challenges that often documentation is about how you are judged because of course, what i do now is medicine. now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions as a doctor as completely wrong because as time progresses and we learn more, our practices progress. one of my worries would be for doctors that they would on the side of caution. now i'm back start recommending for other birth difficulties may be abortion. i'm thinking particularly of down's syndrome babies when we do
11:12 am
know that they these people can go on to lead very successful lives as well. so have to be aligned somewhere, doesn't matter because of course we recognize that and patients name, same details of medicine. it's our job to teach them. busy to bring them on that journey to get them on boats and we can make decisions to get that to treat the problem. but if we're saying and all that common sense stuff to falls into the lap of the doctor to have to deal with and say, well, come on, doctors responsibility to tell you how to live your life. what to do. not only they are responsible for prescribing. also responsible for telling you how to live healthily and if you don't have healthy doctors all. and that's an impossible situation to doctors to work it. we do need perhaps now in the light of this case, we need to put some safety guidelines in there, both to the patient and for the doctor. i mean, i do find incredible that 20 years after this, the doctor is in this position with his whole life ruined. and i still of immense
11:13 am
sympathy, obviously, for a lady involved as well. you know what, we're already in that position of jeopardy, because that's exactly the situation we doctors given it moment. for example, if i was to give patients and advice today and the patient doesn't necessarily follow that advice, doesn't necessarily come back to see me again, like i asked him to do. and then sadly they developed a severe illness and they come back and see me and say, well, the doctor found it. my argument back would be, well, you didn't come back to me like ask you to or you didn't do the things that i asked you to. nonetheless, i will have to go through the process of call. i just think this is a really tragic case. and i wish you had never come to court. i wish the evie had got the help and the assistance she needs. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, and i mean this in the sensitive way. i wish i had never been born the u. k. is for more information commissioner is raising the alarm over the government's planned,
11:14 am
new advanced research agency. now have to listen to this. this body will be fully exempt from requests under the freedom of information act. that means journalists and everyday people can be left in the dark about how this agency plan to spend the 800000000 pounds that have been earmarked for its budget. now the u. k. is freedom of information i came into force in 2005, of course it entitled citizens access to data held by the authorities. and while haled at a step towards open government, it has its critics, including among those behind the new exempt research agency. from my point of view is a truly malign piece of legislation. i am fully in favor of decisions and information about them being released, but i fail to see how the process ology, of government benefits at all from freedom of information disclosures. in september open democracy revealed that over the last 5 years, the u. k. government reportedly spent at least half a 1000000 pounds on legal battles,
11:15 am
trying to prevent disclosures of information and coordinator of the u. k. it's freedom of information act tend to mock what believe the latest exemption is an attempt to limit transparency the 1st time i think because this idea that it will, it will not have to be subject to the information. i will not be subject to the foil, and it's the 1st time that you've got department or agency or you don't have that exemption and it is an extraordinary development. and i think a lot of people are wondering why in the cities, i think the reason it's quite clear that this is a government simply does not like this. we can be of a nation actually engage in. those governments don't like to be held accountable in 10 minutes, like we do nation very much. and this government here in britain, most certainly does not. the minister knew it. martin
11:16 am
made these comments about how terrible information was you in june. and i think what he was giving away was the real view of that got an independent the fact that they said she would not be subject to it when the agency is he was giving away the wider perception that is held by the government, which is they do not my information. he thinks foyer is repugnant. the question is, what does he have to hide? what does this government have time to find him also because we enter the 2nd half of the program. now here when i see the christmas tree in dire need of a spruce up brits, a mocking the capitals, traditional festive gift from norway in trafalgar square. a question whether the you case on something to a and also log book. have you details on that? we are back in just a moment. ah
11:17 am
ah ah, mm. this in their interest for some financial pond is to see the value of the currency lose value because they can gain traction on social media saying it's somehow a good thing, but not everybody is an undertaker. not everyone is a grave. robert. you know,
11:18 am
some people are actually out there trying to be productive and lean productive lives. and of course, that philosophy of, oh, the currency has gone to 0 and less than 0. and that's a good thing is the, is a mad oh, glad you can join us with this program here one nazi so. but you all micron strain of cove. it has not been picked up in the 38 countries. that's according to the world health organization, though important to note 0 deaths have been reported from this mutation. however, the latest data suggests, perhaps the virus is spreading twice as fast as the, as its predecessor, that of a delta. meanwhile, the south africa, which was among the 1st to report the new strain of seeing reco daily infections or the low vaccination rate in the country has started picking up in recent days. or the injections are widely available, but less than a half of the adult population has been inoculated to our correspondent policy list
11:19 am
speaks of vaccine experts in job book. people don't know what this on the crown is, especially because sciences haven't confirmed conclusively what the side effects are. so we are getting a lot of people coming through out of fear, especially in our older population. you know, people who are reaching seventy's and eighty's, we see been quite anxious to get a booster. and so they, as i would say, traffic sheets, a fear of the unknown. the is concerned that the vaccines onto working, but i always say to them, remember, last year, how many patients we had in hospital in icu, how hospitals almost had to convert every would in so many. i see you include in the e r's compared to now people are still getting contracted with cove it but it's manageable . so we are seeing numbers going up. but in terms of how severe the reaction is to the virus, it's a lot to listen to. this is a private explanation fantasy, which means it is well, we sourced and full of information, a far cry from many of the destination santa's in the poor locations here in south
11:20 am
africa where there is a lack of resources and people don't have the kind of information that they have here been here 6 months ago. it would have been a very different story. but in the last 6 months you've had and in july unveiled cross country and in november you had municipal elections. following those 2 mess events, you now have a situation in south africa where almost everybody knows somebody who has contracted coverage. you need to realize that everything that we do will be a precautionary measure, so that we can control and help save a good, a good number of them. i try to, i said he meets also take an extra parts of that. we won't find showing solutions immediately. i just kind of in here what's going on in the world. you realize that if you don't put on the effort, someone else might have to die for you. so i decided i'm going to protect people and come and get my vaccination, then we need to get that immunity going and,
11:21 am
and yeah, the boosters and the vaccines worth of science as shown us with in south africa, specifically, we've known that vaccinated people are not in hospitals on ventilators, it's mostly unvaccinated of continue that there will be more videos, you know, still gonna, i'm still going to be the last one becoming so. so if i'm vaccinated, i'm also, you know, positive re to physically i'm jimmy doodle. so i'll be no stronger my body. this is south africa 2nd christmas under lockdown december, but it's also the main holiday season, which is why many here are concerned that with the ongoing international travel band, just what the impact on the economy will be. and whether or not they'll ever get to spend a christmas with a loved ones. policy, a r, t, johannesburg, south africa. the white house is blaming a surge and lawlessness in the country on the pandemic, or the press secretary gen saki, when questioned about recent mass looting blamed cove. it when
11:22 am
a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go lu, pay store a cbs to nordstrom, a home depot, and tell the shelves are clean. you think that because of the pandemic? i think a root cause in a lot of communities is the pandemic. yes. well, a gen saki is remarks coming, a spike in looting in a number of states over the last 30 days or so. it's something that some are blaming on the rise of the defend the police movement. just briefly, here's a look back of some of that recent looting with well over tied police officer. dominic is, are we explain to us why he thinks the crime search has nothing to do with any virus. just embarrassing that they're not admitting what it is. it has nothing to
11:23 am
recall that it has nothing to do with bell reform and then releasing criminals right back on the street, not prosecuting properly has nothing to do. a coven defined the police movement is an emotional response for any time that the public doesn't understand. when use of force is needed, right? you have unarmed either black americans or whatever the case is shot by police and before an investigation is done, the civil rights activists come in and claim police misconduct. so we already have a situation where emotions are high. the voter thinks the emotional voter thinks is that who this is defining the police, which means we're going to get rid of the cops on our streets. and then let's replace them with the social workers or other people who are better trained and equipped to deal with emotional issues on the street. when you start to have that mindset, well then you're, you're looking at police negative. so already the immoral, the criminal who are out there, feel that they've got the backing of the public. well, i don't have to obey the law. i can break the law because there's already this
11:24 am
massive movement to define the police, which means they're going to side with me. it's a mindset of it's okay for us to do this. and we're going to actually criminals because nothing's gonna happen to us. well, as one of the facing that of a crime wave, the u. s. is also suffering from a huge inflation right now, and many americans are blaming the biden administration for it. 20 percent saying poor leadership is the country's biggest problem, or democrats are among them with some quitting the pot he saw me than switching sides, breaking it all down for us in our new york correspondent caleb muffin. apparently it's not only working families throughout america who are disappointed by the biden administration's handling of several crises. it's also members of biden's own democratic party, some like the former spokesperson for the washington d. c. mayor, have decided to switch over to the republicans hispanic and also black eyes. i should be democrat by fault, but i'm going against their narrative and i feel like right now,
11:25 am
everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy right now. and people can feel it. so that's what's happening in washington dc. now washington, d. c, is a city that is pretty solidly in the democratic camp. democrats sometimes even get 90 percent of the vote in elections. no wonder democrats as far away as texas are switching sides friends, something it's happening in south texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in washington, d. c. are not our values, not the values of most texans, the ideology of to funding the police of destroying oil and gas industry and the chaos. our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in south texas. in addition to the recent shifts, 19 democrats are set to leave the house of representatives in 2022. that includes 3 committee chair. some are retiring or seeking another office. republicans only need
11:26 am
to gain 5 more seeds in the upcoming mid term vote in order to re take control of the house of representatives. and many observers say their chances of doing so are pretty good. some are comparing it to the republican sweep 10 years ago. how's democrats have more retirements than they did in 2010 when the last 63 seats? it's not only the party that's losing people. kamala harris, the vice president of joe biden, is watching her team implode as well. her spokesperson and her communications director have both decided to quit with reports indicating that there are 2 more aids who have one foot out. the door reports are leaking out about strife between her office and the biden team, and the backdrop to all of this is the jo biden's approval ratings. keep going down, the mid terms are less than a year away and the democratic party seems to be crashing and burning. it appears that some in light of the circumstances have decided to jump out of a sinking ship, which might be causing the democrats even more trouble. the democrats are not
11:27 am
delivery and clean and simple, and they're specifically not delivering to the people who are responsible for putting them in power, namely indigenous black, brown, asian, and poor white people. they had given his president and his congress a chance to govern, and the results so far have just not been adequate enough. we have not seen a protection of voting rights. we have not seen police reform. we have not seen action on climate change. i think that people are rightfully letting this administration know based on the approval ratings that more needs to be done and very, very quickly. or there will be electoral consequences. any other things i turned around and i did very, very quickly where people can start to see the trajectory room i'm going upwards in their favor. they're going to respond with their boats and the democrats could be wiped out. so the festive season has gotten off to a bad thought in london at the capitals showcase christmas tree in trafalgar square . isn't quite up to his usual standard this year. every year it's gifted to the
11:28 am
city by norway, leaving some to ponder where the london st on something to upset the nordic nation . ah ah, the trafalgar square, christmas tree got a trim from boris johnson's baba. all we had to go with no, we know the trip focused. great christmas tree has arrived with the following media includes potentially sensitive content. sometimes i wonder if no way is trolling off the base when they choose which tree to give us $40000.00 square.
11:29 am
i would like everyone to know that half of my branches are not missing, they are social distancing. remember to stay safe this christmas and where a face covering on public transport and while inside shops now i left the program for this hour here lie from moscow an hour to international . thank you so much for spending time with us here on the russian capital union o'neill, my colleague is here at the desk and half an hour's time. taken you deep into the saturday night here from the russian capital. i hope you can join him at the top of the hour. ah, ah, with
11:30 am
