3:42 pm
some above the party rounds in many. ways i suppose the question is can he remained that affected. on one of the year and a half ago was a law professor with no background in party politics. he was propelled to the top after the five star movement. and matteo salvini as far right league party agreed to form a cocoalition governmnment in may twenty e eighteen. two five star leader luigi do meio shows him asrime minister. in the hopes he could mediate between the two paparties. contact promised to serve as a people's lawyer. sort of a sort of a i'm a professor and a lawyer. is cool so over my lifetime i handled the cases of many people. i am now preparing myself to defend the rights of all italians. and all the seats of power that is the european and international that's an id. conte as prime minister has been overshadowed in the media by t two mile in south vini leading some to label him a puppet. yet in recent weeks he has proven
3:43 pm
himself to be anything but- not only has he led italy's government through a startling about face he is also seen a surge in popularity. recent polls show him to be the second most popular italian politician after president sergio mattarella while salvini support has dropped.n his resignation speech last week contest slam cell beanie as a danger to democracy. the myth that the media give e me so let me say this the interior minister matteo salvini has shown that he is following h his own interests and those of his party. that video has since garnered two point five million views. the next test will be whether contact can retain his support at the head of another unlikely coalition. this time with the five star movement long time e enemies the center left democratitic party. tell yu politically soul go well that's the look k of british politics with seems to be. even more

3:51 pm
unanswered questions that we have so far about where things really stand between washington and joe sponsors will come first from you i know you'll bring me to this can't really trust. thank you very much indeed great to see if. it's because the studio mediawatch emma james good evening. now then. you start with reactions to the political drama playing out in italy. i yes very turbulent times to say the least with the center left arm the anti establishment groups. forming a a coalition to basically force out the right wing matteo salvini. at who is very much a populist handed it. it's interesting that the italian version of the local that website has chosen the word of the day to be. so which means crazy it can also mean markman. is this a coincidence whether they got their inspiration from i couldn't possibly comment. at what i will say though is that matteo salvini has been very very active today on social media. this is one image that he posted on his twitter account he's calling for order talents to go out into the streets on the nineteenth of october he's calling it. a great day off the
3:52 pm
timely and pride. and the video is that he's posted on facebook he talks about demanding democracy. and respect for the vote armed rules he feels the what happened is basically. something of a queue at much is the same criticisms of being made in the united kingdom right now. and he's also blaming some very familiar scapegoats for what's happened he says it's brussels that went out to get him they want. to get rid of that pain in the neck salvini he is quoted as saying. and he also believes that under the medical and emmanuel michael very much willing the strings on this particular plan. and so he's goaded into basically brussels berlin. and paris sat on this nasa. loan there has a very different take the french newspaper says that i'm basically. he has no one to blame but himself they say he scored an own goal because he- was thinking that he could bring down the government. olson election and then that would put him directly into the prime minister's seat his best have failed salem owned. i'm also in the mold is going to use a call to you here. i'm
3:53 pm
self any of course. hugely anti immigrant it's probably what he's best known for. and plenty has drawn him head bobbing up down on a small boat. next. to my friend in the war he was saying. give up they. i'll never going to welcome you it's very funny but it's one of these cartoons it really cuts. a very close to the truth yes a very much to heart. i thought that is from interestingly there at matteo renzi on the issue off at will. will he be back he says at summers without the is also. but he says no he believes that is it for salvini this is a knock out blow. and he's willing to bet that in a few months even his best friends will be insulting him. so he thinks about it it. intends a frontline politics pool at matteo salvini has an interesting take but we know it's of course the government's change very freak and says we'll see what happens next. so watch this space for italian politics that's one to french.
3:54 pm
football our question is does it have a. with homophobia well that certainly appears to be the case right now because we're in at the very start of the season and we've already had four matches that have been suspended at the close of homophobic charms the latest one was niece fast as most say at not only with a taunting but they also have some bonnet said this is a very well prepared tia antigay comments being made at the stadium a down in the east and the content isn't necessarily the west you're ever going to see in this kind of context and they will clearly trying to be offensive. maybe thought they were being funny to you and basically branding that the club of marseille a gay club saying a foot away and makes the stadium gay and supporting lgbt club to fight against homophobia now the tone of the chunks was considerably stronger and along at along the lines of calling them a bunch of i can't say the word but it runs christie is other things that i'm not even going to him to what they were saying because they're just too offensive. and the coaches of both teams are she happy the
3:55 pm
play was suspended they felt that was the right decision not all of the plans agreed that which is interesting willow scipione who plays a niece and said we called stop the game each time some more rooms do something i'm against all forms of discrimination but you shouldn't stop the match for so little it's ridiculous and that is a debate that was saying a lost phone line this two she's as angry that the plans on taking it more seriously saying. that none of them condemned the child to the bonus i think just complained about the amount of time that the game was stopped for at this gentleman there commenting on the match saying there is a massive problem with homophobia in france i don't think the bomb that was an example there is a really lively debate about what constitutes homophobia and was this it and there is now an investigation has been launched into this so clearly the authorities. take him very seriously prosecutions could follow. is it any better
3:56 pm
anywhere else will that is. an interesting question look of his young interestingly says that. england without doubt have taken the lead in terms of dealing with homophobia and football stadiums. and their number of measures they've been implemented both by club somebody authorities to. to kick it out. this big kick out racism i was the original thing. it's now been broadened out to be all forms of discrimination is not she and- you can download onto your fighting for an english football fans. and it means that you can report someone sitting close to you if you hear a child. you can report it directly to the stadium authorities. anonymously said the people who. are doing it don't know it was you. i am it's interesting to see that they are actually using this there were four hundred twenty two cases. of this being used last year and the husband a successful prosecution was somebody being. bombed from status for three years and find one thousand two hundred pounds say. it'll be interesting to see what phones can do to address the problem indeed i've watched the report of the football for many many many. many years now and there's been a massive change. over that period but still more work to be done very clearly. thank you very much you get a chance of me to watch thanks again for
