twenty four hours a day this is. now the sale season is underway in the u.k. millions of people still indulging themselves some festive holiday shopping both little do they know that much of the money they thought they were spending on iconic british products actually goes straight to the pockets of foreigners pony boy has a story. proud to be british brits interests alike often pay for their quintessentially british experience says unaware that they're run by foreign companies harrods the dorchester hotel and even the queen's grocer fortnum and mason keeping the fortnum and mason is a british store. is it not. it's been here for ages so i
assumed it was wholly owned by british people no never mind everything's not there now you know the reason the things are getting. almost half the companies in the u.k. and now in foreign hands the coalition government in britain likes to talk about the march of the makers have a march of the makers if we're selling of all that is good household names like the chemist chocolate and weetabix cereal have all been gobbled up by foreign corporations your traditional bacon butty hardly imaginable without h.p. source the name stands for houses of parliament the label even has westminster on it but the white house might be more fitting h.p. now belongs to heinz and as you're spreading your hartley's jam or your son pat peanut butter over your morning toast you might be surprised to learn that these british brands were just bought up by another american company in fact even thames
water which comes out of every single tap in and around london now belongs to an australian company advocates of foreign takeovers say they inject much needed cash into the british economy recently with premier foods not only selling off. pickle selling off. some people and also closing down some of their home manufacturing and you know it's interesting what's the reaction analysts say great news for investors although it is bleak news just before christmas. for the workforce two years ago kraft the u.s. food giant swallowed up cadbury's chocolate it was a hostile takeover they slashed four hundred jobs and moved production to poland in the process but there are those that say that the loss of sweets is the least of britain's problems and the loss of control over ports tickly in this country and
around the world where we have a huge network of of good international ports i think is a very serious matter the loss of control over our airports the loss of control particularly over in the g. companies which means decisions about our energy could control in supply and not made in london there maybe in paris and in berlin or overseas tax havens such as zerg in switzerland when companies take over they often move their headquarters away from the u.k. or look for better advantages in terms of the tax. the chemist which is a company with the head office in nottingham for one hundred sixty one years moved to zoo in switzerland it's a move to eighty nine million pounds in corporation tax and they reduced that to nine million so burden is then placed on the u.k. taxpayer increases in income tax of the eighty or other forms of taxation it has to be found and we're the ones paying for it other nations governments scrutinize every overseas bed france for example argues that it's in their national interest
to prevent key technologies falling into foreign hands so while it's often difficult for a british company to buy abroad over thirty billion pounds worth of domestic companies made their way into foreign hands last year last month westminster said that it wouldn't change any laws but would take a greater interest in foreign acquisition the only thing is by the time they get around to it there might be nothing left to sell. see london. for iran's tough times as an international outcast could be about to become even tougher the u.s. and canada have removed the notorious iranian militant group any k from their official terror list washington claims the group hasn't committed a terrorist act in over a decade once a peaceful regime change in the country mean for national explains why some arabians are wary of the move. mohamed shows me his box of handmade treasures

killing of american citizens and welcomed the u.s. embassy siege in tehran openly calling for the execution of the hostages the terror continued after islamic revolution with the association of the country's president prime minister along with many politicians and clerics generous support from hussein it fought hard in iran as well as saddam's enemies inside iraq in one nine hundred ninety seven m. a k. joined america's list of terrorist organizations along with al qaeda and hamas and was cited in arguments for the invasion of iraq today iran iraq still view ek as terrorist group but america's position has now flipped any case as a ranch democratic ah this is just part of the large scale and successful lobby to get any case off the terror least among backers former white house officials army generals and cia chiefs clint extremely disturbing this is a this is this at the time was a terrorist group. officials are moving money around and yet somebody was turning
a blind eye to that campaign i think potentially is going to have an influence on the u.s. policy towards iraq and could get us into a very dangerous position as far as potentially going to war with iraq iranian officials second that saying and became a place similar role that america back to position forces played in regime change in libya and the current conflict in syria. support of to reduce groups. because they use from that through to. political ads new yorker reporter in his article called our men in iran reveals how members of b.k. were trained by america's joint special operations command in a camp in nevada. this is part of an anteroom policy sanctions on iran a strong but they don't seem to work very well america started using inside agents to destabilize the country and the using terrorism as

brutal ways to live for nationality from iran. flying in the face of international criticism israel has announced it plans to build more settlement homes in occupied east jerusalem it brings the total number of settlements approved in the last few weeks to five and a half thousand but details now from artie's. what we're witnessing is that israel is continuing with its expansion of settlements and this new announcement is that it has approved the building of some one thousand two hundred new secure homes in guillot which is a neighborhood in east jerusalem across the green line it comes in less than a month after israel's controversial statement that it was planning to build in the one credible which links jerusalem to the west bank and this is a real line for many states and certainly we've witnessed that kind of criticism and condemnation from the international community since the palestinians went to the united nations several weeks ago for upgraded statehood there have been some
five and a half thousand new secure homes announced in terms of what the israelis were building israel has undergone as i say strong international criticism for these announcements with many in the international community voicing their intense displeasure at these actions by the jewish state in fact the israel's closest ally which is the united states in a rare and blunt move said it is well was engaging in to quote a pattern of provocative action by continuing with settlement expansionist plans with the miscue the kind of statements that the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is making with his proposal and plan to go ahead with the settlement building is current favorite among the israeli left certainly he is appealing to frankly voters and according to the polls he is likely to win in the next parliamentary election at the same time has largely rebuffed the criticism from the international community saying that your use of them is the eternal capital of the
state of israel and will continue to bobet. and with parliamentary elections fast approaching some experts say there's going to be much more talk about the settlements. settlements is definitely within the vocabulary of talking into the center right voters so i believe that between now and twenty second of january we'll see only elevation of the discourse from the prime minister and around on the issue of settlements i hope that those will only messages which are connected to elections and not reality said practices on the ground there five hundred thousand are being divided about two hundred thousand with in jerusalem and there is a total agreement with the palestinian side and the negotiations in the past that all the two hundred day inside is why we agreed delineate the borders of jerusalem then we have the three hundred thousand in the west bank those approximately two
hundred thousand out of them which are living very close they just sent to the green line would become part of it within the exchange of territories and my know if you're for approximately eighty to one hundred thousand israelis which you will have to be evacuated as happened in two thousand and five with our previous government offered shown in which israel evacuated approximately ten thousand which was just a good example for the fact that we can make it so between us and we'll be standing one hundred thousand is where it's which we'll have to go and be accepted and we. will be compensated etc i believe that this is something which goes with the national interest of the majority of israelis. but on the way egypt gets a new constitution two years after toppling off but everyone is happy with the child prospects it holds for the country's future break down the controversy just
a few minutes. takes heat for the close and personal look at the u.s. presidential debates usually sidelined by the mainstream media and our special end of year feature. after a short break. i never thought i could earn a living messmate. natale a show of oil is the norm or should test small arms so there's a lot almost machine building ploy and not obvious sourced count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve years. i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no wait i'm so tired of shooting. the planet's history goes from making firearms doing world war two to ballistic missiles from your class submarines during the cold war the bulk of the soviet
industry was moved here in the 1940's to flee the advancing germans so if you were also became the heart of soviet military production closed off to foreigners for half a century it thrived on the massive moods of the soviet military when the u.s.s.r. collapsed but life here was shaken to the core but some adapted to better than others. this is the year old truck factory brushes the number one truck maker or grabs a look at how well the workplace is organized everything's done to make sure the workers don't waste time waiting there was production is booming the factory has largely managed to get on to civil rails these giants are sold around the globe hayabusa brand new breeds now wait for it to be delivered to acquire seventy trucks like this once roll up the bronx conveyor belt every day look about this things that absolutely huge. well i'm no formula one pilot but
live live. live . our team or world news for. now have a look at some headlines around the world a plane carrying a high ranking military personnel has crashed in southern kazakhstan killing all twenty seven people on board the military aircraft was on route from the capital last an hour and came down twenty kilometers from its destination in the city of
kent local media reports say the pilot was trying to make an emergency landing investigation into the crash has been northeast. at least seventeen people have reportedly been killed in fighting an oil pipeline in yemen the violence broke out when the army backed by airstrikes attempted to secure the oil and repair damage made by local militants last month the country's pipelines are often sabotaged by is the most fighters causing fuel shortages and the slashing export earnings. suicide car bomber has killed three people in an attack on a nato military base in the afghan city of khost the taliban have claimed responsibility saying they were targeting local police that guard the entrance to the base it's not the first time a city that catered near the border with pakistan has witnessed such attacks two suicide bombings earlier this year killed forty one people including six u.s. military personnel. divisive election campaign is looming
over egypt with a new parliamentary vote now due to take place within the next two months it comes after present merci signed into effect the country's first post about constitution passed to stage a referendum on the yes vote was confirmed on tuesday after an official probe into allegations of vote rigging turned up nothing but in reaction a furious position protesters took to the streets of cairo liberals claim the islamist drafted constitution betrays the revolution and sidelines the rights of women and minorities in egypt one middle east expert told r.t. is the mists will lose a power if they fail to meet the people's demands this is the first time. constitution that you have the president not the egyptian parliament went and cannot. you have a prime minister who is actually empowered to take decisions without going back to the president so it empowers other centers as other elected civilian centers of
power but you have. democratic elections and it brought the strongest parties to become the majority what will happen if these islamist parties could not deliver on the promises about a guarantee about the security about the economic conditions i think what will happen the people will vote against them if you look at the voting behavior in egypt the parliamentary elections around seventy percent voted for islamist. parties and in the presidential elections around fifty one percent of the vote is declining going down mainly because they are not the opposition and the more they have to deliver on the promises they cannot just for most while not deliver so now people have expectations and they can control politicians by voting. are there any days left until the end of the year our team is recalling some of the most significant global events of the past twelve months today are to news teams look
back at the coverage of the american presidential debates to reveal what was happening on the sidelines with the third party candidates. we have been running the election of close to your is more than two weeks before the election every single day there was a story by a correspondent running wild guests on the show is so outrageous that truck so given the voice through the third parties was exactly what we needed to get the full picture. we are just a couple hours away now from the third party debate as you can see our production crew is busy transforming our studio in a debate floor one of the most important functions of democracy is the debate a lot of discussion about a lot of issues and the more we can open up don't credit institutions like our our
election system which of all the parties to what it might even be considered fringe parties more likely we are to have an open debate on a wide variety of issues rather than a very narrow range people often ask why is it a tool for straight what you know of the right heads in the country to compete and then you have to explain that there are other voices but that they are pushed out of the process because they're not part of the big party machine on foreign policy for example the alternative candidates have clearly been against military intervention is against military expansion ideas that don't fly with the four washington establishment the other networks covered president obama and governor romney debating whatever right here in our studios we had two very serious candidates talk about very serious issues that were absent elsewhere everywhere they talked about the n.b.a. they talked about drones to talk about the war on drugs and this is something that we put together because not only do we know there was a point but our audience was asking for it we haven't seen it too much of you in
the mainstream media do you think tomorrow they will be talking about how you did impact. election code that would be the pie in the sky is that the guy would impact the election and let me just give you a chronology of the libertarian party. you know the fact is you go from and the noise to a spoiler to a player we really need to be bringing third parties fourth parties just parties into that debate but you're blocking traffic the monitors adults are prepared to write i think you're the man of the moment i don't think i feel like this is a win for the american people that we have been able to enter into this race to break into the party and offer the solutions that the american people are clamoring for. but next to the most a violent gangs in us history with colors to match the flag that's all special
report coming your way just a couple minutes take this. deadly rivals some decades. if you had fifteen thousand people killing each other in any other country there would be diplomats there would be a good. self imposed of costs from society i will cut myself am i going to tax my brother understand my one time immediately i going to leave basically attack the cops of my anger and my frustration. that.
well into the time don't. two of the most violent gangs in u.s. history. as just all model kill or be killed with the colors matching the national flag. but this country uses violence when it reaches and then it legitimizes the violence . made in america. do we speak your language anything about the will not advance. what news programs and documentaries and spanish what matters to you breaking news a little tentative angles keep the stories. you hear asked.
a little. no brother walk out the door to school six in the morning and you get him is he going to school so you got there what's up a signal of his world be up there are no warning just norms and to do something like that. we've been burying one of offerings while comrades and we've actually alex at the funeral when another one of our way gets killed at the funeral and then . so as we live
amongst each other there might be one street it might be one gas station the service to with three different gangs when i get to the gas station i have to find out what are your intentions with me while i'm pumping gas so i cannot turn my back and allow you to shoot me or hit me in the back of here to look you in your eyes and see your intentions and when i look you in your eyes i'm looking to see if you're a wolf a feel wolf and i'm a wolf then we need to come to some sort of agreement so we can both get out of here peacefully. and if your porch up i'm happy to let me go and get my guestbook up i appreciate you being here when i was in the communities talking to guys in the game see and lots of content and with that so many of these particularly the younger guys had never seen the pacific ocean in a gang infested community there are situations where people will not leave a given two block radius for years like this man for though they don't go no where they got a fuck about
a two liter bottle. because they don't know. and he's been tell you a quick you did this what they call slip a donkey call slip it. slip in music rely. actually being off god. now don't point that always hands down i'm ready to do it down and be the one who does the ones that. you can have and if you have to be on your toes it all ties then because anything at any time can happen to you and you can have a hard knock. you can have a heart but you've been shown this order never learn yourself be weak never let yourself be seen as someone with feelings emotions except for. brutal force.
