4:04 pm
a debate of the european summit on december the term and we're ready to use the means to tell disposal turkey must stop its provocations and its hostile rhetoric and as we heard there the european union summit on the 10th of samantha and e.u. member states potentially discussing retaliated measures that they can take against and call. for president. asking for the move all of. it's a nonsense because we still have a mandate of 2 years to go but what micron is trying to do is his trying to fight against radical islam and. the french prison macron has has been criticized by other. political opponents because they say that macron was too soft. radical islam or the muslim population i can tell you and they can show you that prison micron is not. islam is not a muslim he's just
4:05 pm
a radical islam and he wants to control radical islam prison michael went on fewer t.v. in order to explain to this population what freedom of speech is what freedom of satire is that you can make everyone every religion it's not the one religion in particular but every religion and this is part of the freedom of speech of france president micro refused to be drawn on the comments in an interview earlier though he did highlight that france is under attack simply for protecting a free speach. i'm never a good person though this is the difference between us i believe and respect my point is that becoming more violent and saw the with a leader given the violent example i think of these abuse of a broad between political leaders is a room where president michael attempting to take the higher ground in that long wide ranging interview broadcast over the internet on friday he talked about
4:06 pm
what was happening in turkey he didn't address it directly but what he did say is that he was clear that there was a fundamental difference between france and turkey says suggesting that turkey was a north or a terry in state that was when he was talking relation to issues over freedom of the press and he also in that interview touched on things such as police violence saying that he understood that there was violence within the police forces but he didn't think that that was an institutional problem he thought that was an individual problem just like you said there is violence in the general society there's also violence within the police but he also admitted that discrimination has played into a lot of the problems here in france particularly when it comes to the issue surrounding islam isn't saying that france was not against islam but he was aware that some of the problems here were home grown and he was looking to tackle those
4:07 pm
now he also talked at length about the global security bill this is a hugely controversial subject here in france and we've seen protests about that much criticized law over the past 2 weeks now with the protests are because many individuals joined this groups n.g.o.s and even. have criticized article 20. from an allies the publication of images of the police had there been intent to harm. now the out rule as a result of that has resulted in the ruling party saying they will now look at rewriting that specific all article part of the law the present back room being quite clear in that interview on friday that while it may be written the essence of what article 24 stood for will not change now that is likely to infuriate many
4:08 pm
people who say that it would even pinch freedom of the press that it would allow the police to have the green light to stop the press from filming to stop that the public from filming is well i know my quince said that this wasn't about reducing freedom the press this wasn't about reducing the rights of citizens but this is about protecting the police and there are more press to do against that global security bill over the weekend and it comes when there is even more pressure on my own and the ruling party and with god's to not just article 24 but also the entirety of the bill as a u.n. panel of experts has said that they don't believe that this bill is in line with issues surrounding human rights situation in fact they said it was incompatible with international human rights legislation and they've called for the entire bill to be completely written. well let's bring in our. from paris is the finn
4:09 pm
university he's a co-director of research that and an expert in public policy and economics good to have you with us the fos thing i want to ask wiesel but hasn't responded yet to comments do you think he will look kind of reaction could we see. what you're. having a few technological i think technological issues hopefully we will all. know it can you hear me. yes are you work what's your question my question is not so good we are do you think that president marc crow will respond to other ones comments as kony. is quite bad you didn't catch. the entirety of the question could you repeat do you think the president micro is
4:10 pm
going to respond to in any way to ones common. to do which come i'm sorry i didn't catch i think what i think our i think our signal serp i will try and come back here later claude. one of the latest vaccines being put forward to tackle credit for a 78 k. has come on to increasing scrutiny the chief executive of one of the drugs farms behind it has admitted the job may not stop those who take it from spreading the virus when asked directly by u.s. news channel. even though it's good that protection and most. other people i think this is something that needs to be examined we are not certain about that right now 2 days ago it was the news we were all of waiting for it was described as a historic moment but now it seems like it's historic so all the wrong reasons the
4:11 pm
approval of course of the kind of it 1000 vaccination just a few days ago by the british medical regulated meant that as soon as next week the vaccine could be rolled out but now it's been proved almost too good to be true of course the united kingdom was celebrating being world beating well leading and now it seems as though it potentially is just a guinea pig in the science of all of it not because pfizer has come out to admit that actually while the job might be 95 percent effective against private 19 there is by no means any guarantee that it can prevent carrying the transmission of 19 as well now interestingly the e.u. regulator and the u.s. top health officials have both come out say that the u.k. has entirely jumped the gun here it's been far too quick in its procedures because for their for their every settings they think that approval process is necessary to ensure safety and effective it's kind of a real around the corner of the marathon because. they really rushed.
4:12 pm
well there you heard from the top u.s. immunologist who has since apologized for slamming the u.k.'s too hastily. tracking saying it was all a misunderstanding however the initial statement sparked some controversy and apparently put the director of the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases on the defensive but regardless 40000000 doses have been preordered by the united kingdom the 1st batch of 1st supply will head towards the united kingdom as soon as next week it could be around the figure of 400000 doses meaning immunization could start within the next few weeks now top of the list as those most vulnerable of those over the age of 80 plus care home residents and stop. and of course those n.h.s. workers on the front line however there were many people gas costing doubt even right here within the united kingdom particularly over the logistics whether or not there may be a lag as soon as next week is just around the corner but also in terms of the
4:13 pm
distribution of the vaccine as well considering it needs to be stored in conditions of minus 70 degrees so those handling the vaccine argue that they need to be instructed exactly how to do so then of course there's the political narrative in all of this because the government has been criticized for many a failure throughout the $1000.00 pandemic from self-imposed targets and deadlines satin missed to really just handling the crisis in general now many people would argue that we really need to see these promises being delivered and at this point in time it's more of a case of more talk rather than action especially when we're hearing rhetoric like this from cabinet ministers i just reckon we've got the very best people in this country we've got the best. is much better than the french better than the belgians have much better than the americans and that doesn't surprise me as well because we are much better country than every single one of that also so it did help but we've recruited for using will in. the number of deaths in the u.k. must prove that we are in march worse come true than france and belgium not the us
4:14 pm
obviously what the facile boost that sort of thing you hear in the playground not from an m.p. on national radio world beating jingoism brits got it 1st because of how badly they're doing in controlling covered 19 so exactly the opposite of what they're claiming to their government williamson saying that the united kingdom is leading and is a much better nation than any other but at what is the question the public really have when we talk to a clinic collects spot on a political analyst about whether rushed approval is a rush approval. rushing through and cutting safety corners are 2 separate issues so as long as no safety corners have been cut at the and patient people's health and well being have not been put at risk then getting it through rushed in and the words is not a wrong thing to do what we want to ask the question is we hope you have not cut
4:15 pm
any corners to put people's health and wellbeing at risk and i don't think so i have faith in the m h r a as an independent body to her work very hard to have rushed it but not cut health and safety concerns about giving that scene to otherwise fit and healthy people i don't think the mh are a have cut any safety concerns or safety corners and i don't think they would ever authorize a vaccine that was not safe so i would say to members of the public if it is authorized by a group presented to or torah t.v. then please rest assured they would have gone through it terribly they might have rushed but that doesn't mean they cut corners or she struck those fast wraps this. on the basis that it for emergency situation or pandemic i think not such a hurry to brace for because we really have to sort of pound america really just
4:16 pm
make here. which is a fact seeing how many proportion of the population are normally what they mean with the pandemic use the home use potential reverse so i don't think this really qualify as surgery of astra bussing oh you only have to look at the books absent the. 30000 with a population of 67000000. and we know where you might. well i predict on t.v. so you are going to read by the reaction we're going to be some thoughts there are going to be big amounts of money to be made all right these producers were. going to say. it's really good because most people don't actually need it. you know what i'd say
4:17 pm
on the way still china let's follow russia links news outlets a relief stop to question and not the ad told they can't leave the country will tell you why and their reaction not there's a. continuity for change this is what's being asked when considering a potential biden foreign policy trying to get a point to undo obama's legacy when fighting do the same to trump's like this or is this all only retort continuity drives foreign policy not be in the. same wrong. roles just don't call. me. yet to stamp
4:18 pm
out disdain become educated and in detroit because the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. welcome back now employees of to russia affiliated news agencies have been released from interrogation on the condition of the lot for the journalists from both news on sputnik lot fair were charged with violating. roman culture of ha's the details
4:19 pm
. all we know at the moment is that they've been accused of violating personal european union sanctions against the c.e.o. of russia's a receipt of the news agency me tricky solo female russian foreign ministry they have already reacted to what's happening in riga and they said that latvia's crackdown on russian speaking journalists under the pretext of the violation of a huge sanctions is absolutely unacceptable the foreign ministry also said that the e.u. restrictions are of a personal nature against mr kissel off and they cannot apply to just about everyone who cooperates with the news outlets that are on there his managements and they consider the aggressive actions of the security service a blatant example of violating the foundations for democratic society which is freedom of media and expression it is a completely punitive action which leaves no doubt about the use of phobic subtext
4:20 pm
of the fabricated accusations you would think a crackdown on dissent violation of the fundamental principles of freedom of speech were totally incompatible with the status of an enlightened european state but that's the case of the complaint before so dissenting media is gaining momentum now the accused journalists and their colleagues are certainly. outraged and mind you this is a criminal indictment against journalists and they're being persecuted for coal parading with russian news outlets now the crackdown on the russian speaking latvian journalist. well it had all of the intimidating attributes and features and they were there were searches in the homes and places of work there was confiscated of personal property and equipment there were interrogated which lasted for hours one person was interviewed for 8 hours. after all of that was done the journalists
4:21 pm
were released but they were asked to. in latvia enough to leave the country and of course sign a non-disclosure agreement sputnik had a statement about this as well the latin citizens are accused of violating the sanctions regime because of their work for the receipt of civil and news agency according to a lot of lithuania and estonia the agency subject to the personal sanctions of the imposed on the agency's general director joins ricky sort of intuitive foreseen now russian mission and the sea they also expressed their concern they tweeted out saying this is another flagrant violation by rigo of the always see commitments on freedom of speech and access to information and persecution of russian speaking journalists in the baltic countries is not something new for example just the end of last year going into this year sputnik. and now there journalists were
4:22 pm
forced to break their contract with the sputnik because this tony and police were threatening them with jail terms of up to 5 years so basically they were forced to resign and police also cited these 2014 you sanctions personally against mr however the outlets that we've been talking about today none of them have ever appeared on the sanctions list so that's what we have for now well that was some small protests and weaker itself against the charges we also had some reaction from fact from john. state affiliated media. are all over in the united states in israel in many other places what is the army regular in israel what is the b.b.c. what is the voice of america if one starts a tripping journalists are 'd other then media persons just because
4:23 pm
their livelihood depends on the state or on some our reach person who owns the network that is unfair and journalists the world over should rise up against the question was question is why have they done this no of course to the war the question is is it legitimate to use sanctions as a means of preventing the terms of use that you don't like and of course at the most extreme we saw the us in for you slowly the building of the serbian national t.v. station or the missiles that were used to take a 0. in kabul during the the afghan war. more than half a century after the us became the fascination to plant its flag on the moon china has planted an picture at its own of it during a mission to collect in
4:24 pm
a sample material these are images that you can see all of the 5 a spacecraft touching down shortly after it began drilling and collecting rock and soil samples that will help scientists learn more about the origins of the moon the video was captured by an on board camera before leaving on thursday if it's return is successful it will be fast samples brought back to earth since the soviet union's mission back in 1976 chinese 5 as expected to bump back down in a month earlier this month. and finally hugh as president elect joe biden has invited donald trump to his inauguration and claims it will send a positive signal that the post-election chaos is ending but it's unclear whether the millions who still think victory was stolen from trump a need for this move will actually heal and to fissions. you know. trying to supporters are still coming out chanting you can hear stop the steel when
4:25 pm
citing multiple irregularities officials in the swing state of georgia though say a 2nd recount should come from biotin i don't recall to looks at how the dispute is affecting the reputation of the u.s. election. is only about a month left until the big transition of power in the white house and yet it looks like the battle for the presidency 2 is not yet over this may be the most important speech i've ever made i want to provide an update on our own growing efforts to expose the tremendous voter fraud and irregularities which took place during the ridiculous lee long nov 3rd elections if we are right about the fraud. joe biden can't be president trump is sticking to his guns still insisting he was cheated out of the election and calling on the supreme court to overturn the results his lawyers though have yet to prove their case and the justice department says the current administration is full of baloney so what is it that the trumpet
4:26 pm
ministration is making such a fuss about while in new york one u.s.p.s. driver claimed a trailer with thousands of ballots disappeared into thin air i knew it with return addresses filled out thousands of them all in wisconsin an x. postal worker even claimed his coworkers were ordered to backdate the ballots u.s.p.s. employees were ordered to backdate ballots that were received too late to be lawfully counted ballots in liveries in the middle of the night people filling in the blank ballots for by misplacing duplicate souther wisconsin poll workers claim similar violations as well as the widely shared testimony from this michigan election contractor who claimed she blew the lid off some dodgy dealings in detroit there was. actually the ballots being ran through that had been waiting machines numerous times being counted 8 to 10 times her testimony has already been put through the wringer of public opinion and the justice department's also made up its
4:27 pm
mind about these claims we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election. the thing is though the d.o.j. won't say why what does raise the eyebrows of conservative officials all we're asking for is own where there is evidence of improper impropriety that you examine and we want the transparency we want to understand is investigation going on. what kind of investigation what are you looking for for years americans have been told evil russian meddling is undermining democracy and now that biden seems to have won the election there's not so much as a whisper on that front that the russians really just decide to sit out this very important election or perhaps the very system itself is at fault here it's clear that these elections are corrupt through and through but not for the reasons that donald trump highlights the corrupt are going through because there's an electoral college that does not recognize the popular vote there's already a complete lack of trust people do not respect the electoral college most americans
4:28 pm
can't even explain the electoral college provide any type of justification or logic for which there is none many americans don't even participate in presidential elections because they understand that it's. a choice between 2 oppresses for the next 4 years between tweedle dee in tweedledum. trump is just expose the system from the right in created these features that have long existed. that's a round up of today's big story as well you know call me around the clock has always got very very latest thanks watching we have. is you'll be via reflection of reality.
