ah, ah, western media around bob rhetoric over russia supposedly planning to innovate, ukraine, a claim that moscow has consistently denied when a prime minister is spending his time trying to convince the great british public that he's actually stupid, rather than just a silly, responsible and unfit for the job, those are just some of the accusations launched against what he's probably subarus johnson an element or try to find a guarantee about flouting could roles with both parties. a former guantanamo detainees. he was released without charges taking legal action against government to restore his british passport off of the case against him collapse. they issued
4:01 pm
my passport eventually after 8 years of waiting and then took it away 3 weeks later . this is all connected to the initial imprisonment, telemundo hasn't gone away. the harassment continues over the past decade with life from moscow. thanks for joining us. and daniel hawkins, wherever you are this hour, welcome to the program. now, western media stepping up their attacks on moscow, trumpeting what the kremlin calls, unsubstantiated warnings of russia when an invasion of ukraine. the russian government strenuously denied any move towards a conflict, but has laid out red lines against night. i was eastward expansion towards its borders. he's out, he's gone, quarter would be tough. over the past several months, hysteria surrounding up reported russian invasion of ukraine had spread across the west like wild fire and to top it all off a number of media outlets. specifically,
4:02 pm
cnn are continuing to show reports proport accusing russia, basically of provoking the conflict in don boss. russia is preparing what's known as a false flag operation to create a pretext for another invasion of ukraine in the view of american intelligence. that could be an impending attack of some current current in territory, move up from the crimea and join all his territory up. so your buffer zone is bigger. one level up from that annex the whole of the coastline and cut ukraine off from the black sea. now, as you can see there, cnn even gave us a geography lesson claiming to prove why russia was intending to invade ukraine, apparently. but to be fair, though not everyone in the western media was failed to see this double double standard of accusing russia of some sort of aggression while actually nato was arming a hostile government right on its doorstep. imagine if mexico fell under the direct military control of china, we would see that as a threat. of course. well,
4:03 pm
that's how russia views nato control ukraine. and why wouldn't they, these accusations of m and an eminent invasion by russia. ukraine have been going around for several months now and time and time again. moscow has repeated that it is not planning any so any sort of invasion and that having its own troops within its own territory. it's not a threat to anyone. we stress once again, russia is not going to attack in the practice of moving troops on our own soil is a sovereign right. we call for an end to the stereo. so is not to pile on tensions around the don, this problem, and most importantly not to push hot has in key of towards new provocations. and it's also important to note that moscow has made it clear that it's trying to find a diplomatic solution to the de escalation of the conflict and ukraine rushes made a number of proposals for security guarantees between itself and nato to prevent the further eastern expansion of the western military alliance, but unfortunately, washington has shot down those proposals as what they called nonstarter negotiating
4:04 pm
points. so there still is a lot of work to be done in the sphere of diplomacy here. what's interesting is that just on wednesday, the u. s. secretary of state antony blink and touch down in ukraine for talks for, to quote, deter russia from further aggression. and at the very same time and entire shipment of n law anti tank missile systems from the u. k also touched down in the ukraine, so that might not seem like a very diplomatic move, but london says there are only intended for defensive purposes. i can today confirmed to the house that in light of the increasingly threatening behavior from russia. and in addition to our current support, the u. k is providing a new security assistance package to increase ukraine's defensive capabilities. we have taken the decision to supply ukraine with light anti armor defensive weapon systems. now the u. k says that these weapons are for defensive purposes, but it can't exactly control what he does with these weapons once it's in its own hands. right. and we're also seeing ukraine becoming much more dependent on western governments,
4:05 pm
both for armaments and military training. back in 2021. the u. s. also supplied with a large array of javelle and anti tank weapon systems. the pentagon recently confirmed that u. s. military advisors will be staying in ukraine and they have also been reports that ukrainian special forces are actually being trained to fight the russian military on us soil. that's something that was unprecedented. and this is all, while nato countries are actually reinforcing their military positions right. against the border of russia. so if you look at the overall picture, doesn't exactly seem like rushes. the aggressor here, i guess we spoke to said the moves by the west. we're likely to backfire. it's very understandable, but i must go, might be frustrated by the development say the recent, i think the very act of pointing out that having a west and military alliance that companies basically all countries except russia is be stabilized. and it's always been decided lives in the expansion of nato,
4:06 pm
in the 909 to somebody to thousands has not been helpful to, to building trust. and, and we do need to be pressing the reset button to coordinate fries. unfortunately, may 2 members have seen much more focus and emphasis on, on nato, and on military preparations, rather than the palm common cooperative security mechanisms that are crucial to your speech. and those things, as course, that isn't going to be an invasion. this is a sauce concocted. i said nothing in the united kingdom, you have a government in deep trouble and very unpopular. you have the same of joe biden. joe biden is a plumbing debt them popularity. but notice when level plums before accept the donald trump. so a fun distraction, sabre, that name, war mongering is always something which politicians turn to and which generally
4:07 pm
they can, they can rely on their media to, to deflect and take up. so we're seeing this doesn't phobic war mongering propaganda. largely, i think is a distraction from the internal weakness of the western government. ah, british from minister borrows johnson faces escalating backlash when occupations that he hosted boozy party during a co good look down. even some of his own party members took part in willing him in parliament and insisting he resign or position and peas lead the onslaught to speak . when a prime minister is spending his time trying to convince the great british public that he's actually stupid, rather than disowning it time that he go now. this week was supposed to be open ation. see big dog. i as quickly become all petition dogs. don't know,
4:08 pm
why can the u. k. government find billions of pounds for property or some fraudsters, but they can't find compassion. why it's so hard for this prime minister to it meant that he made the bills so he should notable. yeah. and he should fall intervals while forest johnson has faced tough as prime ministers question since he was elected. and it also comes the day after he claimed that a downing street party and alleged one was in fact a work event. and that he wasn't warned that he was breaking any rules. well, no, no one is buying that in the house of commons today as dozens of m. p 's, including some back bench tories have said his time is up and he needs to go. and that argument was spearheaded by the leader of the opposition, the prime minister, the conservative party of showed themselves incapable of offering the leadership with government this country. just while we were sitting out plans to keep bills down, the was planning parties while we were sitting out plans to save jokes in the steel
4:09 pm
industry. he was, he was trying to say just one job. yeah. he's own johnson. the country is up so much better than the other. i don't believe continuing to argue series of questions which, you know, will be fully addressed by he's wasting, he's wasting your time. he's wasting people's time is because he continues to be completely irrelevant to be delivered while they do that. and we, we vaccinated. well, they've isolated mississippi. well, of course kissed alma hasn't gotten off scot free either. as in the heights as a pandemic, he too was photographed eating and drinking in a constituency office in darville, though he is refusing to apologize, saying there's nothing wrong with having a drink with your dinner and says, this is boris johnson's attempt to sort of shift the focus away from his own political scandal, which of course, or is johnson really is embroiled in? obviously this comes as pressure is mounting on the prime minister to resign,
4:10 pm
but he can also be forced out as well by members of parliament. in fact, 20 tory m p 's, they all met up just yesterday to discuss the future of boris johnson and several now have publicly come forward to submit these letters. all they vote of no confidence in boris johnson. although in an official capacity, the 1922 committee needs 54 letters to trigger a leadership contest. now, rumor has it. there are plenty plenty more. in fact, an official poll it sophomore a pool pole of the public suggest the one in 6 people want to see this vote of no confidence come. however, in an attempt to distract from all of this force, johnson chose today to announce new cove. it measures, in fact he is ditching all covered restrictions including mandatory phase mos, including the vaccine certificates. and of course are working from home guidance from next week. on monday we reduce the isolation period to find full days with to
4:11 pm
negative tests, and that will soon come a time where we can remove the legal requirement to so quite together just as we don't place legal obligations or people do i say if they have clue well, that hasn't gone down to well, where the public has back in 2020. when boris johnson was displaying cove its symptoms minutes before he actually tested positive, he actually was refusing to even isolate. but that isn't even the worst news of the day in a monumental move. what we saw minutes for full premises questions this afternoon. christian wake, but a former torri m. p, actually decided to defect to the labor party. but let's see how all this goes and how it all unravels over the next few days. of course, we're waiting for the investigation led by to grant. in fact, some may say that bars don't indeed hiding behind those conclusions. could they be the final now in the coffin?
4:12 pm
well, some say politically speaking, bars, johnson is already a dead man walking. johnson's staffing lockdown restrictions to spot a disturbing, rising co with death with $359.00 reported in the last 24 hours alone. followed the bo group think tank says it won't help increasingly unpopular from minister. i think johnson came out swinging today in an attempt to go on the offensive and went back some public support. and he used the repeating of random forest measures to try regains and public support. i don't think that will suede or make opinion. i think they've been lied to too many times. and some honesty at this stage could probably have been a good saying maybe regains national trust. i think the pm had to have the honesty sort of mich wholeheartedly, that he was wrong rather than transcripts from the issue. i think he may have regained some rules. one doesn't have to wait for the result of commission using the restrictions maybe to cover from, from the main story, which is that there's
4:13 pm
a lack of confidence in him. and that's not going to do any good with the fact that it shouldn't be all ready. rebelling of a scandal, it's become known as party gate is only one of the lingering problems tracking down public opinion of the british prime minister. the u. k. trades playing with france several drastic rise in illegal margaret crossings in the english channel. with more than a 1000, margaret's beliefs have made johnnie from the e. u to british shows this month alone. and the number of margaret attempting the journey has been growing exponentially in recent years. dozens died or was missing last year while attempting to cross in 2021, 28000 la grants a believe to have crossed the child to england more than 3 times the number just a year before. now you k officials believe that $65000.00 individuals could try this year. you know, to give them independence parties format spokesperson immigration, says johnson's pressures on the issue are a bit to distract from apology a scandal, but the public will be full. it's ridiculous. ideas use the navy,
4:14 pm
the british navy has been cut to the bone anyway, and its purpose is not to repel illegal immigrant boats. we are without countries like ghana or rwanda at she knowing about it, saying that we are going to transport our illegal immigrants over there. they're rightly replying and telling us that they don't want them. this has been a problem ever since johnson came into power back in 2019 to resume was little bit weak on this. she famously saw in the un migration barbara johnson has come out with big words. this is very convenient. the only now as the illegal immigrant crisis reaches a crescendo and at the same time, the recall subarus johnson to go that this, these firm promises are being made. we've been full too many times by critic cell and the conservatives are not going to do anything about it. and crossing the channel, the french president himself is under fire over migration. ah,
4:15 pm
and i know micron was booed as he arrived at the european parliament and was publicly attacked by fellow lawmakers, spokesman for france. his national rally slammed his immigration policies while the head of the european people's party accused them of dividing society in while green . any piano is or though viciously lashed out at my crown to his face for failing to fight climate change. worse still had all these 2 are mr. you will go down in history. mr. president's is the president of climate inaction because you ultimately being complacent about the issue. you prefer to find truces with lobbyists rather than wage. a war against climate change. you prefer to procrastinate, like meryl streep in the field? don't know. can you push back? give up and fence the size about solutions in 1015 or 20 years, rather than declare a call to arms or professor john brief. more of the catholic university of lavonne
4:16 pm
believes macaroni sewell fellow terry, and listened to criticism no matter how heavy it is. a speech you are fairly was doing story things about his view of the world is he has a very, very 1000000000 view of the world for a newborn. don't listen to the subsidy, convince of his world you do so you know, is super liberal democracy, which is an actual fact there. he'll do it there. you know, only because his hope is always that there be somebody on the site as he saw bern and like, you know, my hand depend those anymore. and he just gave them the hope that they're probably likes to have in here. but if that happens, then they'll be a huge amount of abstention. sure. so, i don't know what's going to help them that that's what he's worried about. former guantanamo detainees, amazon back, he spent nearly 3 years in the infamous us prison without being charged is now taking legal action for the u. k. to restore his passport. beg your british.
4:17 pm
pakistani had been initially the same 2 decades ago when allegations of involvement and terrorism, he was released from guantanamo in 2005. he was attained again while you go police a decade later, but the case against him collapse. he applied for possible in 2019 and got one in september 2021. but it was revokes just 4 weeks later back believe his passport travels are connected to his previous imprisonment. guantanamo the passport was when i received it, i was overjoyed i. i twisted out that i'm finally be able to travel, and then within 3 weeks i was, i received a letter. an ironically, this letter i received would show the great deal of incompetence was actually primarily the cover letter was addressed to a person who'd been convicted in the north of england for passport fraud. and it was dated 2017. and i left the letter sort of rece regurgitate and reiterated the reason why my passport has been revoked. back in 2013, it was they said,
4:18 pm
based upon a trip that i did to turkey at the syria. again, i was in investigation investigating the role of the british government in working with various regime. i have no doubt in my mind that this has to do with holding the british government to account the fact that they issued my passport eventually off the 8 years of waiting and then took it away 3 weeks later with absolutely no explanation of shows. 2 things to me, one is a great deal of incompetence, and to is just vindictive vindictiveness that has lost over 20 years. this is, this is all connected to the initial imprisonment in guantanamo that hasn't gone away. the, the harassment continues over these past 2 decades, and this is evidently a part of that bag was held at guantanamo for just the 2 years, almost 600 days of which were spent in solitary confinement. he said he not to be nice faith. what the u. s brands enhanced interrogation and call the conditions their torture. if this is
4:19 pm
a short history of the 2 decades of the notorious prison count that continues to hold him might to this day ah
4:20 pm
was on back says his previous incarceration at guantanamo is continuing to disrupt his life. i do believe that the my, my passport has been revoked initially back and when i came back from control them or because primary for evidence that came out of guantanamo, and the former guantanamo prisoners, that i have documented and worked with all around the world. clearly, i think the majority, if not all of them are actually put on some kind of a list of the united states that, that has the stop them or prevent them from opening bank accounts. it stops them from travelling properly harassing them. so the, essentially the, the imprisonment of guantanamo may end when you're freed. but the, the connection to guantanamo and the targeting and disruption of your life does not
4:21 pm
end for this episode. for me is one of the proofs of that though there are others. a number of daily covered cases surging in europe with the almost variance spreading across the continent. but so to a waves of unrest you to tough new restrictions being imposed in some countries. what of warning you might find the following images distressing. will that have been violent clashes in northern germany where hundreds protested against the possible vaccine man that would prevent people from entering into the news without a negative test or a jap peoples that are foreign truckers and at least a dozen. and there should be arrested officers stop the protest. you demonstrated flouting last rule. meanwhile, enabling 1000 the streets in progress over the weekend. it's not mandatory that for everybody over 50 to get a job. and it's essentially bands we unvaccinated from using public transport or in from bars and restaurants, even with
4:22 pm
a negative toby test. i'm just in some actual believe the clamps down amounts to discrimination and demands that the government rethinks it's policies recently approved. reinforce green pass must be a time limited arrangement, and the government must continue to ensure that the entire population can enjoy their funded mental rights. amnesty international italian asked for alternative measures to allow the non vaccinated population to continue to carry out their work . auntie's means of transport without discrimination. one across the atlantic, the number of daily covered cases has reached almost 547 thousands. that's one recent poll. so 59 percent of democratic voters would support the government policy that would confine on a vaccinated americans to their homes unless it's an emergency. now, one of the most popular newspapers in the state of utah are even published senatorial demanding, the measures of rawlton were utah. a truly civilized place, the governor's next move would be to find
4:23 pm
a way to mandate mass vaccination. going as far as to deploy the national guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed. well, anywhere. and we discussed this issue with a pile of gas. so you think that if such policy was introduced, it would create inequality and still not stop the virus from sporting. we are witnessing a manger, action of discrimination. and people are divided into clusters. and what we are witnessing is sort of cold, the ceiling, the war. i mean, i would call it a civil war because we put in brother against brother, friends against friend, all your backs in a to you are not about today to think it's right for any qualities. people standing on line in the u. s. for 4 hours, just to get a job, people having to travel in other parts of the world when they don't have disposable income to do so, or the time to take off from work. because most people want to return to normal. that's creating a lot of inequalities that go beyond just notions of ology about whether people
4:24 pm
want to participate in the vaccine drive or not. we already know that the vaccination doesn't stop from having been there. i will say, doesn't stop me from spreading the wires further. so i see where it does kind of seems to be very this proportion and actually taking away the choice of adults with, you know, particularly under 50 who's got lots of life experience. and i'm pretty sure they are quite responsible people and they should be given the choice, the we protect the constitution, their right to move would provide to movement is why the fundamental, why to in the constitution, which is a document a positive, right? but it's also natural why to also natural law if you believe in the system not to allow the reason why to free movement. well, i think we should be really worried about the effect of the public can have in these types of movements, particularly when government started to bring policing into it or military into it
4:25 pm
. that means that they've given some thought to what may or may not be legal and what may or may not be necessary. but again, i think that if we're, if we're this concerned about coding and listen, i've had 4 shots myself. so it's not that i'm opposed personally to this boat. i am opposed to it is that we don't start talking about keeping other people who are drunk drivers, people who are part of intimate partner violence, those. and there are other things in society where we seem to be pretty lenient. while the world health organization continues to stress that getting vaccinated is in 4th, and time is a vital tool in fighting the pandemic. most of the people in the hospital, any country you take, or any city are unvaccinated. so let's just remember that we have very good vaccines now and we need to use them. we need to vaccinate more people. the defamation trial of a guardian journalist is currently taking place in london. it's over claims that
4:26 pm
back in 2019 multi 1000000 bricks. it back i had links to the russian government during the case withdrawal from the european union. she's more, i guess he takes a closer look at whether russia, again, is being scapegoating. we have reached a point low pass, the absurd we, we left that behind a long time ago where anything that happens and someone doesn't like it, that had happened. well, it gets blamed a russia absurd was roughly when they claim that that trump was a russian agent. ludicrous was when american officials began literally blaming their headaches on russia. and of course, there was breaks it the best explanation for which seemed to be putin errand. banks has been dubbed by repeated accusations of close links with russia. the parallels between the russian intervention and brezza and the russian intervention in the trump campaign appear to be extraordinary. breaks it is now being pinned on russian interference with all of these parties were engaged in anti european project. right,
4:27 pm
probably funded with russian money. aaron bank, the guy who comes with nigel for, i'd look into his panama favorite presidents and policy since axes and businessmen . all got the russian agent treatment from kenya, west to robert de niro. there's also a british millionaire who became an honorary russian agent because he donated to bricks it. when under the russian government offered money to iron banks and not gonna even gone into dallas, that iron banks has told about his current relationship with the russian government . i see he lined about his contact with the russian government because he did. this is a guardian contributor, who for had troubles ended up in court for, for libel nova, that tweet which she later deleted and for that phrase, during a ted talk. she had previously said this was an attempt to silence her attack and journalism, pointing to the fact that banks has a russian wife where she claims sizing experts is the red light banks,
4:28 pm
on the other hand says he just wants her to stop making things up for you rushes forms to white is the chess a prison? tinsley alleged mother, if it was the case, but now coastal kero cad wallader since dog back. she posted an apology to miss the banks, but but still claims. her reporting was of utmost public interest and 22nd of october 2020. i twitter that anne had been found to have broken the law. i accept he has not. i regret making this full statement, which i have deleted it, and i take not to repeat it. i apologize. you are and for the upset and stress caused. now cad wallader claims and court, and she never meant that he took the kremlin money will that the kremlin offered him money, or she mentors he had extensive ties to the russian state and that the public should have known about it. mister banks disagrees. banks has told the court that
4:29 pm
an extensive relationship amounted to a drinking session and g and lunch with the russian ambassador in london which, which hundreds of lull, if not thousands of people have done. he also says that these made up allegations have hurt his and his children's lives. he also said his sons had heard from their teachers and fellow school peoples that he was involved with the russians, and that a man had thrown a drink at him in public while accusing him of being a liar and selling his country down the river. carol now says that she was only repeating what other media outlet said, but other media outlets say that they were quoting her let's. it's like a closed loop of irresponsibility. but carol also has a reputation, even amongst her colleagues, one of infatuation with blaming russia. i have read many of her unsourced unsubstantiated claims of amazement that they were ever published for years. she
4:30 pm
has pumped these claims about russian agents and russian money throughout our body politic and the process. she has not only attacked individuals, but every member of the british public who voted, breaks it in 2016. her story keeps evolve it as the court case drags on her latest defense. as the banks might have been used and exploited by the kremlin . much to her is as reasonable. after all, he does have a russian wife, which i, today's journalism standards is apparently enough to mess up someone's life up next 30 low commentary, explore the history of state, the sanctioned torture. you gave us you can get several, the latest episode of whom was to the team and i are back in half an hour with the latest janice again. oh.
