8:02 pm
i. i'm phil gallo welcome to the program in the last hour the foreign ministry in moscow has said that it will expel sixty u.s. diplomats and close the u.s. consulate in st petersburg the move is a tit for tat response to washington's decision to expel russian diplomats following the poisoning of the former russian spy service great pal and his daughter in britain authorities there say the script files were poisoned at their home using a nerve agent called navi chalk and that moscow was behind the attack the kremlin has strongly rejected that allegation that let's go to moscow first of all and bring in our correspondent mia drag us so richard welcome interac why has moscow chosen the consulate in st petersburg to close. well we can only guess at issues we just not get it didn't go over or he was stuck somewhere in the far east i think one of the reasons maybe if you live in st petersburg and unique if these
8:03 pm
are for the u.s. and you have to go to the general consulate there look it's possible to go to law starts about four hours by train so this is not too complicated if you live somewhere in the far east and you need ten hours by flight and for that reason maybe it's just there are easier for people who need a visa for us to come from petersburg to moscow i was a breach is that of a russian foreign minister sergei lavrov of course the united states wasn't the only country to expel russian diplomats so well what can those other countries that now expect. well you mentioned it at the very beginning it's going to be a text locked out so germany expels for diplomats what jimmy will accept it will have to do to talk to what was going to happen to germany i think tomorrow maybe not tomorrow not today that a lot is going to announce that for german diplomats have to leave the country as well same thing goes for great britain out in twenty three or twenty eight
8:04 pm
diplomats will have to go and as you know the. british council here in moscow has to close as well. meanwhile of course russia says that it has had nothing to do with the poisoning of us are going to compile and indeed a second law process must go once to establish the truth about the poisoning and what is the kremlin doing to shed light on the script out of. that show they're saying we have nothing to do with it whatsoever and would like to help you to find out what's really behind their so why did you look show us just as some sort of you know what you have that you would just and allow our experts to come to london and work together with your expert and then we maybe together find out what really happens and you no longer sad we don't want to do that so for the regime before that reason i don't think that this new cold war is going to anytime soon
8:05 pm
and not and with the next weeks or months. in moscow thank you. to washington now we join. correspondent claridge's and welcome clare the u.s. government presumably was expecting this latest set of explosions. yeah it's hard to imagine that the u.s. would not expect some kind of reaction especially since the russian foreign ministry said right away that they would respond with retaliatory measures now we're seeing that that means sixty people being expelled from russia to match the sixty russian diplomats who are being sent home from the united states also a similar timeframe they've been given a week for them and their families to leave the country much as the case was much as was the case in the united states and we need to remember that this expulsion from the u.s. of russian diplomats was the largest one that we've seen in the united states since the mid eighty's obama had sent people home previously about thirty five russian
8:06 pm
diplomats during his during his administration but this is by far the biggest number of people we've seen expelled in the modern era so the u.s. expels sixty diplomats russia expelled sixteen u.s. and western allies extra diplomats we can expect about to be reflected in russia is it likely to end this or do you think they'll be further reaction from washington it's hard to say with certainty right now by i think this points to the bigger question of whether we're seeing a turn in attitude from the trumpet ministration it toward russia has been criticized from both democrats and republicans for being too friendly with vladimir putin in some ways being too soft on russia when it comes to things like its alleged meddling in the two thousand and sixteen elections and so this action we saw taken was the toughest action that the trumpet ministrations has done to date so the question is was it just
8:07 pm
a show of support for america's nato allies or was it truly a moment that we're seeing that something has changed that donald trump is no longer going to be doing things like calling putin and congratulating him on election victory just fight the advice of his aides claridge said in washington thank you. a look at other stories making news around the world health officials in the u.k. say that cripples daughter is responding well to treatment you describe and to her father are in hospital in the english city of souls brain where they were found unconscious in this month after being poisoned with a nerve agent which has sparked the current route between britain the u.s. various western allies and russia. france's former president nicolas sarkozy's to stand trial on corruption charges he's accused of attempting to illegally influence an inquiry into alleged irregularities in his two thousand and seven election campaign the former president is already facing separate charges relating to

8:10 pm
malala is emotion easy to understand. six years ago her activism nearly killed her taliban gunman boarded a bus asking who's malala shot in the head because of a diary should been writing for the b.b.c. highlighting the misery for women under taliban rule but while others might have chosen to stop talking malala used the global attention to keep fighting for her causes. the un general assembly showing its appreciation on her sixteenth birthday. is the day of every woman every warrior and every god. who have received their wife for their rights. she went on to set up her own fund to malala fund to promote girls' education. and in two thousand and fourteen a seventeen year old malala became the youngest ever recipient of the nobel peace prize. the visit has attracted much attention in pakistan where malala divides
8:11 pm
opinion to some she's on a mission to shame the country a mouthpiece of the west to others though she remains a national hero for standing up to the taliban. britain's prime minister is on a whistle stop tour of the u.k. because today marks a year until britain leaves the european union is visiting england scotland wales and northern ireland's trying to drum up support for her government's bracks it strategy she says britain will benefit from leaving the e.u. at has pledged to maintain the country's integrity. it's a big promise let's see if we can get more from london correspondent a big mass welcome burgas let's talk so the prime minister has a bit on a tour of the u.k. trying to drum up support before the tour she was quoted as saying our future will be bright how is she going about convincing the country.
8:12 pm
that's not an easy task ahead because you have to bear in mind that the reason may herself was a remain and she doesn't come across as somebody who's really really convinced of brecht's it is a fantastic idea but she has to now bring the country together that's really her and asked yesterday go shit in brussels but here in the u.k. she has to bring the whole country together and that's why she was going around all across the u.k. she is stressing that britain is not going to fall apart it's leaving in one piece together with scotland with northern ireland and she is shopping to make the case for the opportunities that come with bricks and so for example she's going to a farm she went farm and other now and and that stresses the the criticism that i think many not only in the u.k. but maybe all across europe have with the name of the common agricultural policy which really is not seen as one of the successes of the e.u. so here she says we can be more flexible we can have our own policies we can stress for example ecological commitments rather than land ownership and this is one of
8:13 pm
the points that she's make making in order to convince those brits that are maybe still undecided whether the seclude idea to convince them to come around. has started the campaign today for a second referendum are they likely to get much of a hearing. well there has been some momentum around a second referendum a lot of new campaign groups have sprung up new parties lead we new have been founded and lots of young people are trying to make the case for a second referendum these are effectively people that want to stop bricks that they're saying well we voted for bricks and but we don't know what that is we do need to find out what actually is going to be the future relationship with the european union in order to then establish whether this is something that we want or whether we are better off as we are now within the e.u. effectively these are people who are trying to stop threats of because they assume
8:14 pm
that the new relationship can be better than anything that the u.k. has at the moment there are mostly young people are trying to gather support or trying to make this into a really big movement that carries others across at the moment it's not something that has swayed a lot of people the opinion polls are still fifty fifty more or less remain has a slight advantage but only a slight one there are a lot of people in the u.k. that are fearing that there might be disadvantages to come after breakthrough and we've spoken to france's a grady who is one of the main trade unionists here in the u.k. and she's very worried about workers' rights and i think we're just going to listen to what she had to say was a what was. called the worst case scenario means that man's up as a kind of single poor on the edge if you're competing on the basis of the very few
8:15 pm
nation. projects. i'm francis so grazy and the general secretary of the team you see which is the umbrella organization for trade unions in the u.k. . for me represents a real risk to workers. jobs their livelihoods and their rights at work let's be brave let's think big and let's talk about. the prime minister restrict he all the great lines she's got lots of she's rolled out staying in the customs union and in the single market which would protect my argument is that working people across europe have an interest in defending a level playing field on workers' rights what we don't want to see is firms using british workers to undercut german or french workers and then dumping of race to
8:16 pm
the bottom. i met masoud barzani a today and his message was very clear that if the prime minister of britain sticks to her red lines of coming out of the single market customs union then all we're left with is the option of a free trade deal and that poses real threats to workers' rights their livelihoods and their jobs some of the heart of bricks it is including in the conservative party see blacks as an opportunity to slash and burn rights and standards that trade unionists have fought for over for generations and our job is to stop them you know these rights that we can bind together as unions across europe to win like internecine rights equal pay for work of equal value these
8:17 pm
rights that really matter. i think we have to make common sense. but also because when i look at the alternatives his rules would i rather play by i would rather play by the rules of the single market in the customs union in perfect though it may be the be told by president trump. what should happen. even though this is going to it's a year from today that is due to happen there won't be just a cliff edge will there it won't just be a case of britain is in. today and tomorrow there aren't. well no i mean it's likely there's going to be some sort of transit transition period mostly things stay the same and then there's going to be. something like a new asian ship but this hasn't been us at it yet this is really the next step for
8:18 pm
brakes it needs to be needs to tell the british people and the rest of the e.u. of course what is the future relationship between the u.k. and the e.u. is it something like a fairly loose relationship that's defined by a trade deal where britain effectively becomes another country for example like canada or is it something that's a little bit closer where britain may be stays within the customs union and is not then free to determine its own trade deals so this is these are choices that have to be made within the next month really because it's about october time when this new relationship needs to be agreed in order to then pass its course go well go to all the e.u. countries and go to the u.k. they'll get mass in london thank you. this is across europe and of course in the u.k. we'll be watching those negotiations carefully dr winter that's right now transition deal was meant to come businesses down but with just twelve months left investors are confused by bricks that economists confounded by it business leaders frustrated
8:19 pm
they point to u.k. data which is less than perky last year the euro zone's economy expanded more than two percent but in the united kingdom g.d.p. rose just one and a half percent this year the british economic growth is expected to slow. to less that one point five percent because of the weaker forecast investors have switched their cash out of pound sterling its value dropping fifteen percent since the break said referendum that's making u.k. imports more expensive pushing up consumer prices at three percent that is the highest in five years brits have had to borrow to maintain their lifestyle expectations u.k. households debt amounts to one hundred fifty percent of their income now that's the second highest rate after canada of any advanced economy. but there's more to the british economy than andy bracks it's doomsayers predict c.m.c.
8:20 pm
markets a senior economist michael hewson told us earlier to look on the bright side of life. contrary to the predictions of doom and gloom the work came out the fall the brics referendum economic growth actually hasn't been that bad and let's not forget here that the u.k. economy has expanded from twenty consecutive quarters it's been expanding since two thousand and twelve the comic recovery here is much more mature than say for example the economic recovery in europe so i think we are slightly ahead of you in the economic cycle which would i think reinforce the reasons i think why the european economy is probably growing at a faster right but certainly i think there are there are obviously negatives inflation you mentioned it is slightly higher it has pressed down on consumer spending but overall the unemployment rate is twenty five year low
8:21 pm
wages do finally starts to be appear to be picking up so there are silver linings. michael hewson talked to us earlier nums a british businesses are increasingly unsure about what to expect the uncertainty affects companies of all shapes and sizes from big corporations to small startups because most of them have one thing in common they depend on sales into other european markets. alex poole has profited from the craft beer boom he and his partner founded the brewery by the horns six years ago we do explore with the cultures are we export to sweden norway italy more recently russia they're all and groups of the bracks a third has had a positive impact on their business the british pound has depreciated which is why their beer has become cheaper for european customers the down side british be a producers buy some of their put them into brought the weak pound makes these purchases more expensive this can line was bought in italy. were very poor to
8:22 pm
vitiate. case actually it pretty much cost probably twenty twenty percent or thirty percent more than than what it put it on for bricks are probably despite britain's plan to leave the e.u. spirits are high not only among craft beer producers confidence has gone up over the last few months among the u.k.'s small businesses they hope the bracks of negotiators will keep their interests in mind not only those of large global players. following two years of decline the art market grew rapidly last year and this year it looks even more appealing as investors seek shelter from recent volatility in capital markets now hong kong is embracing its newfound role as a global hub within the first hour of this week's art basel fair in hong kong a piece by willem de kooning sold for thirty five million dollars for just one
8:23 pm
painting and chinese artists are far behind few chinese buyers probably wouldn't have had much interest in this painting by up and coming artist dan in the past but this year to work titled connectedness is garnering a lot of attention. in their first few years i felt that they are very excited and they are so poor hungry in collecting so they would be coming up to us and wanting to collect right away certain pieces if they felt they were that they love it but over the years i've seen more and more of our educated behavior china has become the world's second biggest up market after the u.s. in the past year chinese buyers have spent thirteen point two billion dollars on paintings sculptures and other rot that's up fourteen percent on the previous year . that's creating a windfall for some like eccentric on-call nationalist fro king kwok who is selling
8:24 pm
his hand painted calligraphy he. so thought. when i first started a lot of people just came to take photos now they are thinking of art as an investment and that is a good development to. visit is also to have the opportunity to become an artwork themselves anyone can pose either as a consumer reduce to their purse. or is too interconnected forces keeping a book from falling. these pieces came to me in india proving that you don't have to be a wealthy are by to get your fifteen minutes of fame and i will. personally that counts as art dial i never knew i'd learn something i've always regarded myself as a as a work of art and a half this just to for absolutely are. getting a rare one now fact here yes we're talking about the rest of it this way in the

8:33 pm
a time when kenya did not allow you will citizenship. to get more on this from like catherine one joins us from kenya's capital nairobi welcome can catherine tell us about the backgrounds of this. but we're going to as you said the good and the good that is rising star when it comes to politics in kenya and he seems to be stoking the hornet's nest and disturbing the peace in terms of politics so the government says or feels like he is a threat or that's what seems to be the case right now. and so while they so keen on getting him out of the country. or are we going to be going if you can remember in two thousand and seventeen he was he proclaimed himself the general of the national resistance movement which is an arm of the national socialist super alliance which is the up the main opposition party now this national resistance movement was seen as the government as
8:34 pm
a violent or or an outlawed movement so for them they see him as a threat currently we know that he has been deported to dubai and that he's refused to board the plane to canada saying that he has every right to be do you know to be in kenya because he's a kenyan citizen. trysting lead this is the same man who ran for governor of narrow b. which is the capital city of man of kenya last year in two thousand and seventeen for you to run for such an office you must be a kenyan citizen so it's quite suspect why the government is acting like this meanwhile kenya's judiciary same's to place itself firmly on the good of the governors aside i mean the government seems to be defying them whether it's this heading or there then seems to be a lot of anger among the kenyans among can you thing that the government seems to be having a total disregard for the rule of law if you can remember in two thousand and seventeen just off to the supreme court and now the president who came after the
8:35 pm
