9:16 am
current leadership but as artie's laura smith reports there was plenty of politics but few policies labor leaders address. ed miliband told the labor party conference about his childhood as the son of jewish refugees who had fled the nazis and his school days at a london comprehensive which he says enabled him to get on with people from all walks of life his ultimate goal though to differentiate himself from david cameron and his chancellor george osborne who've been branded from within their own party as to push boys who don't know the price of milk but in reality just how different is ed miliband his father was a socialist intellectual and his upbringing in highbrow north london circles is worlds away from the lives of most british workers he went to oxford and has never had a proper job outside politics apart from a teaching post at harvard the speech was full of bluster about the all me the
9:17 am
police the wonder of the lympics an ephemeral vision for britain some might say that's because policies are few and far between he said he'll fill it out the banks make sure companies pay a fair wage and support the national health service but the main announcement of this speech was a promise that if an elected labor will instigate a massive increase in food cation the education focusing on the fifty percent of young people who don't go to university a great idea youth unemployment is around twenty percent at the moment but there was no mention of the all important cost and how it would be met miliband has admitted that it's labor was in power they'd be making austerity cuts too but he's refused to give any detail until after that elected more than anything miliband has tried again to cost himself as a man of the people but many are saying that if he wants the people to listen what
9:18 am
he really needs to do it's not talk about himself the seemingly endless anecdotes about his childhood and his family. but seriously in detail about the country and its problems. time now for more world news for you this hour kyrgyzstan's count but all is back under security forces control following deadly clashes between police and protesters they were demanding the nationalization of a gold venture which is currently operated by a canadian company hundreds gathered in front of the government's headquarters some trying to storm the building but were forced back with rubber bullets and stun grenades telling three. striking factory workers in indonesia are making their anger known nationwide open poor wages and use of casual baber more than two million are urging the government to improve conditions and quiet down on temporary contracts which are being used to get around strict labor laws

indonesia's wealth gap has widened despite being southeast asia's biggest economy. joint african forces have secured somalia's port city of kiss mile after nearly a week of battles to reclaim keys facilities in the area it's been it's long been a stronghold for al qaeda linked islamists fighting the country's internationally backed government somalia has been riven with political chaos since one thousand nine hundred one but it's being supported by the african union and its troops to try and restore order. while the georgian dream coalition is planning a clean sweep through parliament and top of its wish list is getting the country's lame duck leader mikhail saakashvili to step aside the president's near decade of undisputed rain hit the buffers when the opposition blocked sealed victory in the parliamentary election from tbilisi here's an exit. it felt as if georgia had won the world cup in the streets celebrated the surprising win by the
9:20 am
opposition and despite fears the ruling regime may somehow hambre destroy so. soon their worries were swept aside by the president himself. it is evident that the georgian dream coalition has secured a majority this means this parliamentary majority has to form the next government for us at least for me the views of this coalition were fundamentally unacceptable and still remain so. just six months ago in opposition when it was deemed impossible the ruling party's rating was at seventy percent and nobody could challenge that confidence saakashvili was that he amended the constitution granting more powers to the prime minister at position many predicted he would eventually feel himself little did he know he was digging his own hole won't he changes to the constitution does it count as a dream that more or less save the parliament these are the majority.
9:21 am
but that's a little less flair. however this situation did not come out of nowhere prison torture tapes released in september he'd saakashvili the hardest thousands took to the streets as allegations emerged that he personally ordered the torture and filming of these atrocities the changing point in this election was the allegations of brutality in prisons and torture and the allegation behind that was of course that saakashvili and his prime minister merabishvili had ordered this abuse so if you have a situation where the new parliamentary majority wants to investigate abuse it could well produce a crisis full of his close associates so they could not only have lost the election but they could face serious legal complications the georgia dream bartz the leader and possibly the next prime minister because anybody really has already made his position clear. this man's ideology has established
9:22 am
a climate of lies and violence and torture it would be good if he submitted his resignation rather than starting various procedures to for. to resign. it was not only the prison tape scandal which brought fortress of power down say experts corruption among elites oversee and playing hardball with russia all contributed but for now georgia is welcoming and. hoping for a fresh start georgia's history is rich with different sorts of bloody could it to us and forceful change of governments in the outgoing president mikheil saakashvili came to power as a result of a revolution so this may well become the first days in its country's history of a peaceful transition of power. a look see russia ski r.t. reporting from billy's seat in georgia more of the fallout from george's selection of our online also at r.t. dot com displays of anti e.u.
