to goad minority government leader to raise them a into war because of weapons of mass destruction he wanted on says about a financial statement on monday the n.h.s. is clearly in crisis so why wasn't there a penny extra of the n.h.s. in yesterday's statement by the chancellor the prime minister told coleman to look at the arguably blairite labor party in wales perhaps you might look to see what what the labor entering in wales. that the latest annual day to the next on your data shows when i look at twelve hour waits in any three point four percent of patients waiting over twelve hours and when compared to one point three percent in england they want to talk about meeting targets he should talk when they have a government in wales kuhlmann would hear nothing of it any chance england abandoned its ion the targets until april two thousand and nineteen it's a bit rich for the prime minister to be scam on me about why i was she was she said
fun time here anything but was it scaremongering he talks about scan on bring in wales i was pointing out the facts and i want to thank. god i am not right we do see why we do see people in wales often trying actually to get treatment in england rather than in not rather than in wales people the dying said coleman people are dying because of overcrowding and long waits in our hospitals i think the prime minister should get a grip on it and ensure the n.h.s. now has the money that it needs to deal with the patient came on and then corbin referenced everyone's favorite scientist stephen hawking who died this week we started with professor stephen hawking and he said just a few months ago there is. there is overwhelming evidence that any chess funding and the number of doctors and nurses are. in adequate i mean it's getting
worse does she agree with professor hawking there was no answer from to resume about one of britain's best known scientists she had science on the mind though or revenge based on science one assumes britain would within hours veto the un resolution to investigate the atrocity in the southwest of england well to take a better look at the russian threats narrative and how it may now affect the future of a post-breakfast britain i went to the green outside the palace of westminster to talk to a member of britain's house of lords international relations committee lord elf well to take a better look at the russian threat narrative and how it will affect the future of a post directed britain i'm now joined by lord valve member of the international relations committee at the house of lords and former member of the european parliament. thanks for being here on the green outside parliament twenty three russian diplomats being chucked out of the country in the next few days your reaction to tourism is statement. i can't see what. i mean what it will achieve is
presumably twenty three british diplomats will be thrown out of russia some say more than maybe. but. the. choice everyone is saying in the house behind us because she has the evidence that the kremlin ordered an atrocity in england. i mean what i have no to seize these apparently the russian also or she's of os to need with the investigation to be given some samples of the know. and that's been refused now that doesn't seem to me like trying to solve the problem there in this was very clear that there was security considerations as to why she cannot reveal certain bugs the information just as in the public inquiry regarding the atrocity in mayfair in central london the p.m.a. six by the. but how on earth that we got into this position.
that's the first question we should be also we have leavell putin regime is how we got it well as i was in we have some or no who was exchanged came to live in britain he's living openly under his own even a house in seoul he's apparently meeting british secret service agencies the first thing i ses have they not yet be briefed you know what's he's going on there's all sorts of things that just don't add up but there has to be a consensus in the us a lords in the corridors of power there the about this that the security services are telling the prime minister that. clearly something has to be done against the largest country on earth. something probably does have to be done but he only has to be done because reports ourselves into the situation and what we now proposing to do is to reduce the opportunities for the two countries to work together and we seem to be forgetting that britain has
a lot of business interests in russia. what would the reaction be here if and there presumably would be some russian retaliation if they said well we'll have some sanctions against british business where do we end up with this we don't gamed up in a good place and also we don't yet know the full facts of this case on about the fact that anyone who tried to poison is obviously not pretty competent because they failed obviously some ascribe the popularity of living here putin in russia to being someone who dragged in public to crack down on the oligarchs who stole all the money from the russian people and you do presumably back the measures being taken to freeze assets and that's where they're freezing the assets in london and then giving it to the russian people do welcome those policies i think clearly the . seniors in particular would rate for russia and a lot of money when. out of the country that belongs to the russian people and one
can only support the government its attempts to turn that around i would be more impressed if that had been laid to the british and russian governments cooperating about money of which so huge amounts in london. concerned are saying there isn't going to be any go operation whether we have magnitsky act or whatever in terms of repatch rating money that's been stolen from russia and i'm not sure who to magnitsky act he's actually cooperation that's not how many people would be for certainly. but you know it just strikes me that we're getting ourselves into more more of a difficult corner and that we really have to have some dialogue and i know that i'm popular particularly in the parliament but in the end you have to talk. to one of the lessons of international diplomacy in the end this problem will have
to be unscrambled in the end we will have to talk and that is for the good of both countries so you're not a popular but you live you do support tourism am there cancelling the visits of the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov to britain. cuts he was equally key but willing to give me. highly experienced polished diplomat and actually a pretty good foreign minister or email it's written showing that he's not welcome here but ok so what we say you're not welcome to talk if frankly far is the prime minister i'd be saying i hope he will soon come because we need some very frank dialogue about what he's going wrong in the relations between our two countries. and clearly if there was a poison attempt something has gone badly wrong and the russian state is one of the british style. to get to the bottom of what's happened aside from the geopolitical
context and the atrocity and saw israel vs the you're on the house of lords international relations committee and you mentioned business how will worse relations with russia affect breaks in britain it's difficult sorry to be quite honest we can only speculate at the moment but it's hardly going to make the russian government feel more co-operative towards helping british business experiment in russia and presumably the brits are going to do the same to the russians so it's not going to help. this great open trade agreement that we're searching for. and why why do you think those considerations are not to the fore. because some would say that there is a separation here given that russia trades obviously a great deal with the european union with so much of europe's energy coming from russia we seem to have got also into
a great big standoff position and it doesn't make sense i mean you know to see it i mean germany and gazprom are cooperating quite well in energy supply to europe and i was tend to think that if you talk to people you're going to get further than a few. nature some more predictably immediately said they support your resume the white house what did you make of their reaction more temporary today too busy second people where all right i mean even before the sacking of the secretary of state but you don't care do you think that in washington they realise relations with russia more important than immediate reactions. it so difficult at the moment to call russian american relations you know the state department is in chaos frankly there are a huge number of vacancies there you've had the last year with the secretary. state
and the president. and it's difficult to see the united states as being a very credible foreign policy for the moment and then many in the palace of westminster there were expecting to resume to attack this station on t.v. surprised or about the fact that she didn't ban this channel in britain and de facto shut it down very sensible over i mean i've never believed in shutting down the press i had a long long time dealing with turkey i'm sorry to the turkish authorities let them say what they want to say you know. because if you drive it on to ground you were killed it will still be there but i think it's fundamentally wrong to. have agents of the free press but of course the statutory regulator. has been clear that it is listening all the time to what is being said at the dispatch box as to
whether they should review the license of the channel. is that we'll know a period of free speech that's what they say and i hope they just keep saying i'm not doing well about thank you ok thank you very much after the break. for rex tillerson. i very much. and i wish him well. the firing of his secretary of state rex tillerson because of the russia and to resume we speak to award winning author in rolling stone journalist matt taibbi and andrew pierce the daily mail's consulting editor writes off jeremy corbyn even though the latest opinion polls show you the odds on favorite to be britain's prime minister all of them all coming up to him going on the ground. the good and the bad. capitalism to work both winners and losers you can't bail out
every single bank that gets into trouble you can't bail out every single cap was the nice free money you got to let the system weed out the losers otherwise you end up with you know a state controlled state maintained price fixing regime by the state that resembles all failed such experiments in the past why not just let the free market be the free market. is. the church secret indeed just like priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it literally like to call this the geographic solution so what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot where the previous standard was not. highest ranks of the catholic church conceal the accused priests from the police and justice doesn't do that any
that's not going to as the i and then i include that it used. to. welcome back well the stakes could arguably never be higher and what some are already predicting could turn into a nuclear confrontation between britain and russia no wonder some might argue that they believe a german call when a seeking to decrease tensions whilst applying stringent sanctions of those who have stolen money from the russian taxpayer but that's not the way some see it from the makers of the most visited english language newspaper website in the world joining me now is andrew prius consulting editor of the daily mail. welcome back
what did you make of tourism is jeremy corbin's response to reason may is a very boring speaker she just doesn't very often get the complete command of the house of commons chamber but i thought statement this week was magisterial by her standards she had the commons with her she is a former home secretary so she was able to draw on her experience as being and responsible for security and terror and the leader of the opposition was shameful it was an embarrassment because the leader of the opposition has a job in my view to be supportive in a time of national crisis to sound at least vaguely patry arctic instead he was peevish turn ish and in failing to condemn the state of russia for what is perceived to be a russian act he showed himself to be according to some of his own side on the wrong side of the argument and it was made worse by the briefing after the statement by his press secretary seamus milner seamus miller's got for he's been to
russia expensive been literally and he's a great supporter of the state of russia and he elaborated us to what i call been refused to accept that russia is responsible and he peddled out that line used by the russian embassy that britain should actually give over a sample of the nerve agent so the russians can test it oh great idea what are they going to send back to the russian embassy and get some scientists to test test it and then they'll say go it has nothing to do with that you know ridiculous idea russians are saying there is under o.p.c. w. treaty that they have to do that danielle hayes not twenty four hour deadline but let's just get back to the cold war literally a cold war is a cold because in the next twenty four hours bloods of britain already probably feeling it there's a cold snap russia's response could literally be difficult for switching to stop british homes being heated and then lit is that a price worth paying. the fact is we don't have enough gas it is running out and we
buy some of our gas from russia it's been a matter of great concern in number ten not just under this government under the previous government and putin could do that i suppose but of course russia needs our money too and they need to sell the gas to us because they need the cash bill bell from the first of this show is saying we need partners in a post rex it world i know the european union has come to help in this time of defacto war with russia presumably both brics that we're not going to have any great trade deals only with russia and its allies maybe even its brics allies in the in the rest of the world we will be it will be announced next week that britain as part of the brics it process can start negotiating trade to us that's a huge change by the european union it's a big win for trees amazing to go she just wants law school in beijing or together well we will be doing trade deals with china we'll be doing traders with the united
states i suspect we will be doing a trade deal without me putin anytime soon but then trade with russia isn't huge in any case but the idea was it's supposed to grow well with other countries that will it will grow with other countries and will russia no just not russia as well unless of course russia comes to its senses and stops assassinating or trying to assassinate people on british soil loads of people aboard about international politics in this country and don't really care one way or the other of course they care about the tragedy of a british police officer and so forth is that way to resume could never have said that the england squad can't go to mosque and i think it's not inconceivable that that made position may change so so far the prime minister has said no member the royal family will go prince william is president of the football association in this country a job i imagine he loathes because we all know he can't stand for much happier on the polo pitch old chap but he won't be going no officials to be going so i'm sure that to me peter will be devastated that the sports minister tracey kraut to go by . word to be terrified by that is can you are so bulls as well but there is talk of
the possible that could be the england football team may not go and it would be it people say you can't involve sport politics hang on. british prime ministers were heavily involved in trying to get the world cup to britain but russia won the bid with the help of mr blatter who of course is suspended from international football for corruption. and is hugely significant and i suspect there's a possibility even now that we may not go to the world cup because. it's going to be tarnished that would mean those in marine you know the affable manager who are just taking on to do commentary that might be a mistake what do you think about the fact that people like him are told not to appear on this channel and indeed m.p.'s from both sides of the house who are so keen to appear all of them some of them are even saying we should be shut down as well i completely disagree with the idea that. we're disintegration network poorly
and i was in for britain is a haven for free speech we're just a few hundred yards from the mother of all parliament and if people don't like russia today or they don't like its output don't watch it but do not close it down off come to my understanding i've got no problems with the output and it would just be churlish frankly under pierce thank you well it's been quite a week for u.k. u.s. relations mainstream us commentators were quick to assume donald trump firing of his secretary of state rex tillerson via a tweet was connected to tillotson support for tourism a in her war with russia hopes of a detour into there would soon be dashed as trump's un ambassador nikki haley echoed may's attacks on moscow and then washington reportedly introduced new sanctions even before any u.n. investigation of the chemical weapons atrocity in england joining me now from new jersey in the usa is award winning rolling stone journalist and author of insane clown president matt taibbi. in math welcome back to the show i'm going to start
actually with the fact that the russian federation has warned britain not to threaten a nuclear power how do you characterize relations from between britain and russia regardless of america and russia i'm in. the nuclear doomsday clock is right now at an all time low or at it's i think it's the equivalent right now is that one thousand nine hundred fifty two levels it hasn't been this low since one thousand fifty two this is an extremely perilous time in the relationships between the west and russia. i think there is a variety of factors that are that are going into the danger zone one of these is the situation going on in one with the poisoning incident but just as serious as the situation in syria when we have. u.s. troops and russian you know contract mickie on the other side of the euphrates
river. we have a lot of sort of bombastic talk by leaders on all sides about nuclear capabilities the new states. and the little girl level of and the. russian sentiment you know particularly in the united states is at a pool at a place where i haven't seen it in my lifetime and i you know i can remember the reagan years during the when he was talking about the evil empire and then after the shooting down of k a seventh so this is. the we're in an unprecedented place right now is the british politicians in parliament with a few honorable exceptions some of them are saying we now need to launch a site of cyber attack on russian institutions and all manner of other levels of response and that russia is a rogue state. so it will not respond to reason and i don't understand i mean i do
understand look there are a lot of political. angles to this story. there are things that are going on that have always gone on these two countries have always meddled in each other's affairs there are a bow is there have always been spinach games back and forth between russia and england and russia in the united states you know there was an excellent book written by one of your countrymen you called the great game that details this activity dating back to the late hundreds early hundreds i lived in russia and one in the ninety's when the you guys states openly meddled. in boris yeltsin's reelection campaign there was a cover of time magazine after after yeltsin won reelection there were the it's a picture of yeltsin then the headline of the yanks to the rescue because he had
advisors american advisers are reporting directly to bill clinton. who were aiding them in that victory and this is just part of the way these. countries are operated toward each other forever and we've always been interested in each other's affairs i think the difference is now that there is a political angle towards demonization of russia that is inspiring some politicians in the west in england and in america to make a public issue out of this in a way that they had they wouldn't have before they they wouldn't have have. incited. such a heated situation in the past over what essentially is a domestic political aim. to scare people into you know behaving in certainly politically. sister channel r.t.
america has of course had to register as a foreign agent from this nazi era act don't trump tweets a lot about mainstream media but he seems unable to ban it using your version of the f.c.c. . surprised that in britain the prime minister can say things and they immediately the regulator will take steps. or talk about steps in closing down the television station one of the benefits of the american system media. is we've we've gone quite a long time in our history without really having a strong official national. media regulator we do have the f.c.c. they did play an important role in the formation. of t.v. and radio stations with a couple of key laws in the late twenty's early thirty's there was the
communications act of thirty four. of the federal radio commission and actually twenty seven also adds of things to say about what radio station should be but for the most part there is no regulator for print media and. communications regulator is a very very weak one in the united states which for most of us in the press we've long considered to be a good thing that the government mostly stays out of our business. you know for it to take the step of forcing our teats or register as a foreign agent under sour opens the door for an incredible. amount of the abuse that could be directed at almost any kind of foreign news agency in the future and i think that's in an age mistake. and i'm not thrilled with the
decision to to retaliate against r.t.e. and britain either i think this is somewhere to the decision that they made with the olympics in one nine hundred eighty you if you have a political issue with a country you don't go after sports you don't go after the me. you. more serious diplomatic measures but thank you and that's it for the show but i should add now that in last saturday's broadcast on the tenth of march and professor theodore postal claimed that george monbiot called him an isis sympathizer after the book us mr mom b.-o. contacted us to deny the allegations made he said i've never said anything about personal being and i sympathize and when i challenge personal claims people accuse me of being a nice a sympathizer a paedophile being blackmailed by the government and a mossad agent well professor postol has since contacted us he said george monbiot was corrected by quote summarizing one of his pa statements was not exactly correct the exact quote i had in mind is personal is without question guilty of white washing mass murder in syria mr malviya told us that he stands by these claims in
a week that marks the eighth year of hostilities and with the president bashar al assad now controlling most of the country that's it for the show we're back on monday with legendary british ball got to know lebanon's alleging corruption of the british banking system till then keep in touch via social media will see on monday fifteen years of the day of the launch of u.k. u.s. operation iraqi liberation or. later changed to operation iraqi freedom which are still good this place tens of the. church secret indeed catholic priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it literally like to call this the geographic solution. what the bishop
needs to do then he finds out that the priest says is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot where the previous standard is not. highest ranks of the catholic church conceal the accuse. priest from the police and justice system to that just don't get us the. slip that it used to. sell. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers available to us but there was one more question and by the way who's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star among us and the huge amount of pressure come out you have to go meet the center of the pole with you and do all the great the great good you are the
