5:01 pm
ah. hello and welcome to the weekly from our team. we're going to run through some of the biggest stories that we've covered here over the past 7 days. first matters this weekend though, and the 2nd and final day of the g. 20 summit in italy has wrapped up. it's been the groups 1st in person gathering since the start of the pandemic. among the hot button issues, the leaders have been thrashing out europe's energy crisis cove. it on a possible agreement for a global corporation tax or your correspond. peter oliver has been following development syndrome, whether its being progress or whether this has been a talking shop, depends on who you speak to. if you talk to those demonstrators who were on the streets of the italian capital on saturday afternoon into the the evening, they would say that more definitive action needs to be taken on climate change, as opposed to the talking that's been done about tackling that particular problem. you speak to the leaders themselves,
5:02 pm
so i think they're pretty happy with what has been achieved at this g 20. they're all gathered for a, a big photo op at the trevor fountain earlier on sunday, throwing coins over their shoulder into that famous landmark, hoping that that brings some looked to one particular area in which they have made a, as few steps forward. and that is on a, a global minimum level of corporation tax. now this was an initiative that was put forward by the united states am if you listen to those who are giving the full backing to the u. s. president on to joe biden, himself on from joe biden himself, of course, we've heard it hailed as a real success. here at the g. 20 lead is representing 80 percent of the world's g . d. p. allies and competitors alike made clear that support for strong global minimum tax. this is more than just a tax deal. it's diplomacy reshaping our global economy and delivering for people. or the plan is to put in place a minimum 15 percent rate of corporation tax across the globe. now the plan is
5:03 pm
by doing that, that you would an increase the rate of cooperation tax in some countries that they would then be able to use that extra revenue that's generated in order to fund social projects with the idea of pulling people out of poverty. this hasn't gone down well with everyone though skeptic say that alone, we really benefit those nations that are already wealthy. the plan from the u. s. point of view is to raise their a corporation tax level, which already stands at around 21 percent up to about 28 percent. critics, including char, is an organization's looking to fight poverty and happy that this is the way forward. in fact, oxfam have called this a mockery of fairness, the world is experiencing the largest increase in poverty indicates and a massive explosion inequality. but this dale will do little or nothing to hold either his dad, it is already being seen by some wealthy nations as an excuse to cut domestic
5:04 pm
corporate tax rates risk in any race to the bottom, or the j. 20 seems to be ending with one su, that we thought was put to bed before it even got underway. raising its head again nuts. the, the dispute between australia, france, and the united states, really over the orchestra deal. now that was the defense pockets the between australia, the united kingdom in united states. what it ultimately did that defense pack though, was it cut france out of a $66000000000.00 us dollar deal to provide submarines to australia. we saw us president joe by meeting with frances a manual micron on friday, reconciliation the pose word all over the hatchet well and truly varied. am hun shakes? no, i'm sorry, no, i'm sorry. no, thank you. no, thank you. being offered from the 2 leaders, really, and am it now turns out though, that what was said by joe biden, that he hadn't been made fully aware of exactly what was going on with the deal, might not be the case. we can now listen to what the u. s. president had to say, and what is come out from the australian prime minister. i was under the impression
5:05 pm
that phrase hadn't formed long before that he was not gone through my arms. it was always a difficult decision force trailer. it was the right decision force trailer and we work closely with the united states and united kingdom and we kept them up to date the u. s. administration with well, we're at and now there is discussions with france. that's it for the g. 20 leaders summit 2021 next year. the event moves to indonesia with the leaders meeting in bali. peter, all of a r. t row attempts by the us from france to patch things up. took 2nd place to that sweeping endorsement of a minimum 50 percent tax on the world's largest corporations. oh, earlier, i'm not saying economist, explain to us why wealthy nations like the u. s. will be the main benefit years. it will never be in the, in the interest of the government, the u. s. government and any other wealthy countries to get more faxes, but what they do with it. i mean, that's going to really implement who's been,
5:06 pm
who benefits new doesn't. generally speaking countries and wealthier companies rather based and wealthier countries are going to be much less affected by this, then the global bit of tactful effect doesn't work. i personally wouldn't try to create a, a global block of mineral taxes. but one thing that could be done is also to lower the barriers through to bringing a technology, skills, information transfer to all the nations of the world with actually taxes or a barrier to that thanks is no doubt. they don't, they don't help better. they, they're a barrier to the spread of information, the raises productivity and raises the standards of living and all that sort of thing. aromatics in the u. k. have raised fears of an unprecedented crisis facing the ambulance service with one local department, even pleading with the public to think twice before calling because there's simply on enough staff to cover the workload in many, many hours, but to get into the hospital. and then once they've been in the hospital waiting to see a doctor course, it has
5:07 pm
a detrimental effect on anybody who's waiting for hours either in london. so sitting in an emergency departments and nobody working in those 7 states wants to see doubts happened. but there is a huge amount of pressure on an test. at the moment. meanwhile, ambulances are being forced to stay in keys for hours outside hospitals, which are struggling to cope themselves with the demand for beds. a number of medics opposed to pictures like these on social media. one paramedic demanding urgent action after showing 25 ambulance crews waiting to enter an emergency department adding. it's not even winter yet. while earlier this month, the patient died off the waiting more than 5 hours in the back of an ambulance. we are right on the edge and it is the middle of october. it would require an incredible amount of light for us not to find ourselves in the midst of a profound crisis. over the next 3 months, the u. k. governments put the country on something akin to a war footing to deal with the coven cases, and also get ready for that crucial winter flu season. troops have been trained to
5:08 pm
dr. ambulances. some 4000 of them are on stand by to help be on a chest cope with the wind to season. earlier, the british defense secretary said soldiers are also ready to assist with administering vaccines, testing for covert and other general support in hospitals. this is why new daily covey cases in the u. k skyrocketed in july, they've remained high ever since. and doctors fear that those numbers combined with the flu season, could overwhelm the health system. and it just chiefs also want the prime minister to implement it more stringent plan b for this winter. that's gonna include vaccine passports, compulsory face masks, to, although so far, the government's holding back in there are other things that the government could could in. it could be doing, and yes, they should be absolutely seriously considering mr. at this point in time before things go too far. hospital i working has been on what we call black alert, which means that the beds are absolutely full of patients up for a number of weeks now and we are not coming across the whole system. many hospitals
5:09 pm
are very full with patients and we know that hospitals actually been at their most efficient if i'm not absolutely full up with at patients. and it does mean that it knock on effects that have at those patients who are waiting for urgent address, who require in particular intensive care beds are high dependency care on not being processed and not being cared for in a timely way. and we know that is the case. there are 5700000 people on waiting lists within the n h. s. at present, which it sadly is probably going to get worse before it gets better. at the face of whistleblower. julianna's, son for made in limbo. this week after a 2 day extradition appeal hearing at london's high court, the u. s. is challenging britain's decision not to extradite him to america on health grounds. he's wanted there on 17 charges of espionage of one of conspiracy to hack a government computer. after exposing alleged western war crimes, if convicted on all counts, he could face a prison sentence of 175 years. although it may be many months before
5:10 pm
a final verdict in the case is reached. ah, i the judges just said they will take everything into consideration, but no ruling was handed out immediately. the entire day was devoted to hearing arguments before by the prosecution for the grounds of appeal. why they wanted to appeal a judge's decision not to extra by the phone. and there were 5 grounds of appealing to the 2 main topics. or of course it's on just health and the assurances, a diplomatic assurance is given by the united states in terms of health. what the prosecution have been trying to do is accuse a key medical, extra witness professor compliment of being disingenuous of misleading the court. why concealing the identity of a sondors partner, stella morris, and the 2 children, we finally heard the yahoo news story, the investigative journalism that was done a few weeks ago where 30 us officials confirmed what we already knew from anonymous
5:11 pm
testimony that the c i was discussing plans to potentially kidnap or poison julianna's songs in london. and so this was brought up in the context of why couple men, why professor compliments did not disclose the identity of a song just partner and their 2 children, because he feared for their safety. when it comes to the assurances the united states is giving. they say that drilling assumption service sentence in australia, but australia has not even indicated if they will take you in his arms. this is a process that takes many years. the truth is the drew and his arms will most definitely be placed in at least administrative segregation. and if not, he'll be sent to a special housing unit. so there's a wide array of tools that united states can use to break him once he's on us soil . and then most certainly will during those days of the hearing, a santa support has rallied outside court. they want his immediate release and chanted, journalism is not a crime. others express growing concern of the whistle blows, health, pink floyd, co founder and long time a song supporter water water told r t that he believes the whole case is
5:12 pm
a huge miscarriage of justice. this is an absolute nonsense that this man has been locked up for a single day. whether it's in the ecuadorian embassy or in bel marsh. and this is, this is one of the most valuable human being still we, the human race have. amongst us, he is deeply, deeply important to the potential for this race to survive on this planet in my view, that is why julian sanchez in prison because he's interfering with the accounting planter. still the planet sort of rape it to death and then destroy. it is a disgusting miscarriage of justice. look at guantanamo bay, asked shaka, alma, my friend, ask anybody who has been in the hands of the u. s. judiciary. and at any point, possibly since the 2nd world war with whom they did not agree. and you will find
5:13 pm
that there's no justice to be found in the united states. i'm shall angry. and i'm so bad. i'm so disgusted with the united kingdom. oh, i did a radio program last night. john ship, tim was on it and he was extremely eloquent. and i asked him how he may, how he manages his grief and, and he was absolutely, he was all moving to listen to. he says willy, he puts it to one side as it goes through his life. and his life is entirely devoted to the freeing of his son, so he can go to his wife and children. and john says that late at night he may retreat into his melancholy. and i felt my heart lurch in my chest. as i listened to this man saying yes,
5:14 pm
and i felt his melancholy hit me like a hammer blow on my chest. we are not going on anywhere at all. and our voice is going to get louder and louder and louder until julian sanchez set free. a promise you that a more about the 6 doors of the week ahead, including this a case suspect from the january capital wyatt was caught on camera encouraging people to storm the building has been quietly removed from the f. b, i's most wanted list, and that's prompted questions about whether he was actually connected with the government. it's our next story when the week he returns after this hello, driven by dream shapes bankers and those with
5:15 pm
who dares sinks. we dare to ask for what we got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offensive, very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk with
5:16 pm
now it's not often that someone disappears entirely from the epa is most wanted list, but that's what's happened to a man who said to be a key figure in january's capitol hill riots in washington. he was caught on camera telling people to storm the building. now this is all about some including republican party members, raising questions about exactly who the mysterious figure is. and the weight. kellum open reported on that for us. and individual featured and videos calling for people to enter the capital building even before the january 6th capital riot and was seen on the day. january 6th, ushering crowds into the capital building has been identified by law enforcement as arizona resident re, apps re apps and arizona man scene invite la circulated videos telling trump support his on multiple occasions to go into the capitol also seemed to have acted on his own i don't know, like a rebel, as i said, we need,
5:17 pm
we need to know. i'll say, we need to go in the camera let go. ah, unsurprisingly he was on the f. b i's most wanted list them was referred to as suspect. 16 for some time. f b i w f o is seeking the public's assistance in identifying those who made unlawful entry into the u. s. capital building on january the 6th. but now suspect 16 has been scrubbed from the f b i website. now if you take a look at the way back machine from archive dot org, you can see that from january 8th, 2021, all the way until june, 30th suspect 16 was pretty clearly highlighted, but suddenly, on july, 1st, he wasn't on the website any longer. now if he'd been arrested, he would still be on the website just with arrested under his name,
5:18 pm
like others who have been apprehended. but he's not, he's just been scrubbed. this has prompted lawmakers to ask questions about whether or not there were f b. i provocative tours who may have helped events on january 6th to go the way they did far as we can find this individual has not been charged with anything. can you tell us without talking about particular incidence or particular videos? how many agents are assets of the federal government were present on january 6, whether they agitated to go into the capital and if any of them did a so i'm not going to violate this norman of follow the rule of law. i'm not going to comment on an investigation that's ongoing. now the capital breach database has no entries or listings for re apps to some. that's a pretty big red flag. the ongoing mystery of re epps. he repeatedly appears in videos encouraging and inciting an invasion of the capitol on january the 6th. yet
5:19 pm
for some reason, has not yet been indicted were charged. even his people with far less involvement have been re apps as a free man. he has never been arrested or charged nearly 10 months after july. the 6th, the fbi i in justice department still refused to comment on with the abs has ever been served. a search warrant the up the eyes record when it comes to things like protests and provocations. is not exactly squeaky claim, people can look up the history of cohen tell pro infiltration and other dirty deeds if january 6th is such a pivotal date in u. s. history as it's being presented. surely questions like those surrounding suspect? 16 demand answers. caleb martin, r t new york. facebook is undergoing something of a metamorphosis where the major re branding to change its corporate name on, ironically to matter is part of a drive to broaden the scope of the company's brand recognition to include its other holdings like instagram and whatsapp up the internet joined in to help that
