8:32 pm
i think that he's he's very different in that way from tourism a he was very timid and didn't want to offend anyone. and i think boris is bombastic i do accept the fact that he said a lot of things that upset a lot of people but i don't think he was intending to upset them i think it is. you know. it was the way if you read the whole article a lot of times things are taken out of context and the. there was a and a tory assad tical about him talking about women wearing burkas but he actually in the article said that they had the right to wear whatever they liked but everyone missed that out and just talked about his opinion on burkas so that i think sometimes you you can just take the soundbite you've got to actually read the article with what is written but i think his the important thing about boris is that he will inspire us to to go forward and take a chance i think we've got to stop the sort of increasing nanny state that is
8:33 pm
making everyone terrified of trying something new right my question that would be to marcus becker. boris johnson has built a career on criticizing the your european union do you think he would be able to work out a deal for bragg that that would be good for the united kingdom. i'm pretty skeptical about that because the problems he faces are still the same problems faced by a series of mates and. boris johnson has not the most fortunate of history so that the you here remember that you started his career as a journalist of the chile to daily telegraph in brussels where he will basically. did a little face journalism with. ludicrous things about the e.u.
8:34 pm
and not how in the last couple of weeks he hardened his line towards the e.u. even more saying things that are basically incompatible with reality like for example he said in interviews that he wants to break up the withdrawal agreement and take only the best bits in it then he said that he wanted to withhold the exit bill then he said that he wanted to kill the north an island that's not all together which would basically kill any deal at the same time he says he wants to have a free trade agreement and until this free trade agreement is done he wants to have a standstill so basically that's the transition period where everything stays the same but this transition period is part of the withdrawal agreement so if there is no withdrawal agreement there is no transition period so everything johnson says doesn't quite match so i think this is a fundamental problem and i think this will be a major interests for him to be able to conclude a deal with the u.s.
8:35 pm
that aside and jones if that better to have a pullback that here and the bars johnson has been a staunch supporter of brag that to be negotiating a deal then a people who are on the fence. well i mean he wrote a column supporting for maneater submitted the column supporting leave i think his support for bracks it was entirely opportunistic and even those who support him at the moment tory m.p.'s he probably don't think it capable of being prime minister will tell you that but the issue is that when he talks about optimism you know evo again in in is ludicrous consistently because start up if we can put a man on the moon then then we can secure the bracks it that he wishes will 1st of course print did not pour money on the moon but that minor detail aside you know it's a bit like me saying all i can jump out of the window and fly like superman and any want to suggest otherwise is just being pessimistic anyone can abuse that's an
8:36 pm
optimism to describe attempting to achieve an impossible end in the impossible and that he's trying to achieve is trying to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement which has been rejected of course repeatedly by parliament but which the european union has said there will be no regular renegotiation of whatsoever and the problem is now effectively any form of brett deal any deal with your pain union through the form of any withdrawal agreement is seen as a not a genuine threat he himself said that the withdrawal agreement which he actually ended up voting for would leave britain in a state of vassalage at the same time you have the brics party which was founded by the former you could lead a nigel farage which so far has taken a huge amount of the conservative support without them the tories wouldn't have panicked and installed policy johnson is the lead of their party in the 1st place and if he comes up with a deal of any sort they will say that's not really bret's it is brett's in name
8:37 pm
only and they will do to that deal what boys johnson and others did to trees amazed and so the only genuine breck's it now amongst most live supporters is a no deal bret's it was no majority for our in parliament so we either at the most likely option as he calls agenda. an election for october now if that was the case you know you're going to have to say he's going for no deal or he has to say he's going to renegotiate a deal in which case the breck supporters say we don't trust this guy. they will that risks eating into resupport all right catherine so in that sense is he heading to another election boris johnson particularly feel tries to push through his no deal of gender and because he's got what they're calling a way for a thin margin within the conservative party is that inevitable. i think most people expect it is oddly enough i don't get to say this that often so i am just going to say i agree with most of what jones has just said. i think that
8:38 pm
they withdrawal agreement is did. the idea of picking out the good bits is pretty difficult because there aren't many they are respects is not necessary anymore there are definitely ways around that there's a massive tome was published by prosperity u.k. last week showing how we can deal with the irish border and keep it seamless and we can follow the ways that have been used even brazil has introduced a trust a trade a scheme which is working very well and much better than the you use one so there are definitely things to do and i do believe that we will end up with a no deal bricks that. because that's probably the only thing that the parliament will not stop and that is the problem we have a lot of m.p.'s who will go out of their way to stop the u.k. leaving even though the u.k. democratically voted to leave and the only way you can change the concern is const
8:39 pm
to. the then members of parliament is of course to have an election so i do think we'll probably have an election quite soon. i don't see another way around that. i expect various tories who've been particularly. active in stopping bricks it will probably lose their seats. and there's a chance will depends on where labor comes down whether they support remaining and or whether they support leaving there's a bit of a division in the labor party at the moment but whichever way they go they have to choose carefully they are the london and back remaining or and that's loses them the north or the placate the north and back leaving and that loses them london to the liberal democrats so. it's going to be an interesting election definitely interesting times ahead so marcus what do you make of the fact that president trump
8:40 pm
is a huge supporter boris boris johnson he said he's tweeted his approval of boris johnson winning the prime ministership is that going to be a concern to the european union when they negotiate with boris johnson the fact that the u.k. . is showing all indications of moving towards the us. i don't think so because basically nobody really a surprise to about donald trump being delighted to their will become prime minister because they basically are made of the same stuff no one is when it comes to populism when it comes to their relationship to truth. and i think the u. is still an after a possible u.k. snap election is still pursuing its major most important goals and the the of the most important one of all else is to protect the single market and so even if there
8:41 pm
was some sort of magical technical solution to keep the trades around the irish border frictionless the e.u. still wouldn't really go for that solution why not because you just cannot have a former member having exits the union and then basically have the same kind of friction as trade or the e.u. members of the members of market enjoy because that would have devastating consequences potentially for the single market and this is a complete no go not for the u. commission but also for example for germany and especially for the german industry which the british ears always said would you know come to teresa mayes a's and. push the american government to a softer stands and the except opposite was the case so the the.
8:42 pm
the e.u. is completely united around one position position which is that a former e.u. member can have the same benefits in the same form of friction a straight a current member can have ok so and that's it let's move this forward to foreign policy particularly with what's happening with the tankers in the straits of hormuz as the friction with iran given boris johnson's outspokenness and perhaps lack of tact are you concerned about where this could had particularly now that the u.k. are going forward the u.k. will not have the full might of the e.u. behind it. well you just quickly are given a false or just settle national television they do have to be challenged what catherine said about arrangements existing in an alternative to the backstop is simply not true no technology exists in order to keep a completely open border which is a precondition of the northern ireland peace process which ended
8:43 pm
a conflict which killed over 3 and a half 1000 people it just can't be said on my own on television like this one challenge is not true and it must be reported on the issue of course of iran well we already know given there is a there's a you know the case in iran at the moment of a of a of a of a british iranian woman who is in held in custody and boris johnson's own intervention when he suggested that she was there doing so-called journalism and then this was used an iranian call to back up the idea she was a spy so we already know boris johnson's foreign secretary you know one of the worst acts of trees made was appointing him is britain's chief diplomat britain's face to the world all he did in his dealings with the e.u. is cause consternation and irritation and embarrassment so what the danger is because the johnson administration and seek a free trade agreement at any cost with the united states that they will go along
8:44 pm
and we've already heard jeremy hunt the other leadership come today talking in a very hawkish way that if the united states ends up with some sort of conflict by the likes of john bolton cheering them on then britain will do what it did in iraq and buy the ok help i'm going to not intervene of it for you all right i'm going to add to leave it there i'm afraid in this program's gone so quickly thank you very much i'd like to thank all of our guests catherine mcbride marcus becker n o n jones the one thing that's clear is they're going to be very very interesting few months ahead for the united kingdom plenty of more discussions to come but thank you for watching you can always see this program any time again by visiting our website you'll find that our desire dot com and for further discussion go to our facebook page you'll find that at facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story. and remember you can always join the conversation on twitter our handle is a.j. inside story but for me in the end the team here it's good buy.
8:45 pm

8:50 pm
terms of massachusetts and belief systems really as you said series amazin out on a lot of promise questions very feisty called on jeremy colvin the labor leader to resign she's now gone away back she'll give a short valedictory speech in about half an hour expected to be much less emotional than the one she gave when she resigned and then she goes to the queen and resigns and that's gone and then prime minister johnson he goes see the queen gets the royal assent for and for his prime ministership. and gives what we expect to be a much more detail statement later this afternoon which will set out a lot of other policies which aren't to do with states which he needs to do anyway in case there's a general election in october before that deadline but he's promised the u.k. will leave the european union by and if you look at the shape of what he's trying to do so far the advice is that he surrounded himself with what looks like it's likely to be his cabin of the sorts of personnel in his ministerial team it is absolutely a full bore hard blow hard it sets up 99 days to go from today until
8:51 pm
the october deadline when the u.k. supposed to leave the european union he said he's absolutely set is stalled. it's if he can do it the man who led the leave campaign now insists that the u.k. will leave but that don't like if he can't do it then i think probably nobody will be able to and they might have to pull the whole thing off but he's got a very very divided conservative party to try to bring together and deeply skeptical europe to be dealing with in the meantime as well so far still missed the do or die thanks so much lawrence lee there we're getting reports from sudan of the arrest of the general recently promoted to army chief of staff by the military joint or several other high ranking army officers of also reportedly been detained iran's president says he's ready for dialogue but not if they go she means surrender tension is high between iran and the u.k. following the seizure of a british flag oil tanker arsenal honeyed describe the military operation as

a wearable robot. research and development for new medicines is costly and time consuming and almost always profit driven so where disease affects only the poor that market is neglected meaning no new medicines. is one such neglected tropical disease it's the world's 2nd largest part it's a killer after malaria killing $40000.00 people every year but has had no new drugs developed for decades. i'm dr dobson when i mean ethiopia to explore how big pharma are being mobilized in an unprecedented global initiative to find and fast track a cure for. colors are also known as visceral leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease transmitted through the bite of infected sandflies. when they feed on humans parasites infect the body and are internalized by microfiche is immune cells designed to protect us from infections. here the parasites multiply

8:56 pm
a 3 to 4 hour drive to the nearest treatment center but for those are unable to pay for transport it's a long walk. fortunately their destination is the center for the treatment of color. for the last 10 years gone the university hospital has been conducting successful clinical trials involving the combination of 2 all drugs sodium stupid lucan 8 or s.s.g. and para myself. in 2010 the world health organization officially adopted this combination as the new 1st line therapy for callous in east africa it's the 1st movement in half a century and dr aramis deros has been leading the way. our previous regimen was so depressed we're going to commit a few days with a combination were able to shorten that regimen to 17 days that's good yes indeed and if you can see was more cement factor sent so you managed to kill 95 percent of
8:57 pm
patients which is the new combination is that much better than before well in terms of if it is more or less similar. but in terms of. hospital hospitals base it tends or spittle base to 17 that's a big achievement. just 2 drug combination therapy is safe and has almost half the hospital stay of the earlier treatment. that's a crucial reduction for both patients eager to return to work and the health sector struggling to accommodate everyone currently all 26 beds here are full. play we think is love it must be nice to meet if you will come this is it yes at least when isis research treatment. after the heavy demands of this year's high season the hospital has run out of

power in my city and despite the new w.h.o. guidelines is forced to return to the full 30 day regimen of painful and toxic s.s.g. injections. so this is one of the words. hello he feels very hearty fever how long have you had fever. you know but. gosh he has been sick for around 6 months now right then marie you still have pain in your stomach that are learning to walk. through was 1st suspected of having malaria due to the similarity in early symptoms . but after not responding to treatment he was referred to another clinic which finally diagnosed colors are. now 6 months after he 1st fell ill he's in good hands but if it was left any longer he might not have been so lucky. patients who
8:59 pm
live in very remote places not able to find out. subsequently when they. really week and. then they go. and now that you're here in hospital. not working how does that affect your earnings this commission any time just changes that and it's also why there are tons of. mistakes and being in. debt us a nation can lead to. them but who is likely to normalize within a week still like all colors our patience due to the dangers of s.s.g. killed require around the clock monitoring and toxicity testing for the entire $31.00 days of treatment. the new combination therapy is an improvement but until
9:00 pm
these toxic drugs are replaced entirely by new safer and more if acacias ones it's still not good enough. as a neglected tropical disease. is desperately in need of a new research and development boost. a few 1000 miles away help is at hand through a new global initiative. we're here in geneva not far in fighting the un and the world health organization but over here we're going to meet the n.t.i. the drugs the neglected diseases initiative. d.n.d. i are the nonprofit organization behind the s.s. g.p.m. development. founded in 2003 with the help of medicines of frontier nobel prize money they've been rallying commercial pharmaceutical companies around the world to share their resources. already begun.
