a british national of somali origin has been arrested on suspicion of murder ortiz shandy. edward dusty earlier reported from where the tragedy took place for conservative. and he said david amos has died following a multiple stopping area this afternoon during a constituency surgery meeting out the methodist church directly behind me here in south. and what exactly that is. it's an opportunity the members of the public to meet with the local m p face to face and discuss local political issues. but around midday this afternoon, a young man ran into the building wielding a knife before attacking the veteran politician and killing him at the time and came to the scene. paramedics, treating him out the scene while he was fighting for his life. but he tragically passed away the sea. now essex, please have released a statement saying that they were cool to the scene at 12 o 5,
5:03 pm
but confirming his death just after 3 pm. now, what they do know about the suspect is that he's 25 years of age. he was arrested and a knife was recovered here at the scene, he is now in custody. now the police say that they're not looking for anybody else in relation to this incident. now we don't know much about the suspect nor his motivation behind the attack, but what we are seeing now is tributes and statements are pouring in throughout the day across the political spectrum. we've also heard from barbara johnson at the prime minister who is now in downing street and he said, i think all our hearts are full of shock and sadness today. and above all, to david amos was a kind and decent politician. he was one of the kindest, nicest, those gentle people in politics. and he also had an outstanding record of passing laws to help the most vulnerable david with a man who believe passionately in this country and in its
5:04 pm
future or people in the local community are absolutely heartbroken. have held a vidual to remember his life. they say he stood up for the rights of local people and use his parliamentary platform to advocate for them to. now of course david amos was $69.00. he spent 4 decades in politics. he currently held his seats since 997, but was a serving m p 's since 983, making him one of the longest standing m p. 's in government. now he was a big voice in many campaigns, not least, the breck that campaign, and also a huge animal rights advocate as well. sadly, he leaves behind a wife and 5 children. now as the nation is in an absolute state of shock, many also are now calling for more security unsafe protocols for members of parliament in britain,
5:05 pm
especially considering the really chilling similarities to the murder of jo cox who was stopped on shot to death back in 2016 again, that was just before her very own constituency surgery meeting. it's also really sad to know that said david, a mrs. last tweet was actually talking about this constituency surgery invitation, saying to the local community to come and talk to him, face to face. so for many m p 's, this is a really passed to no tragedy for them. and a terrible reminder of the very real risks that they face in the jobs of a normal friday today. tons, very hiring and very violent indeed. and a much investigation is now underway. and david amos had been a frequent guest here on r t done the years where he shared his opinions, his views on politics in the u. k. joining me now for more on this is conservative
5:06 pm
m. p for south and west said david amos ha was elected on the same day. 1983 as his gentlemen. we need to have a government who know what they're doing. i don't mind hard work. and in fact, the army is it would go back to the size of constituents i had when i used to represent basil hamlin. i don't think it's anything to do with party politics and the number of seats to david. thanks for speaking to us. we'll among reaction, there we go to the act was from former u. k. army officer, charles shoe bridge, who believes the public are unlikely to have such direct access to m. p. 's in the future. following the gruesome attack at the advisory, i think it's not the same. sex is very sad day for british democracy in itself front, on shore, gods are actually changes will be made in terms of the security aspects of this kind of work, where the mt, if he's going to be or she is going to be a tree representative of people can eval, this kind of work where they are open,
5:07 pm
she meeting with constituents, it's absolutely essential, it is continues. and so what we've got is a situation i think, where in terms of going forward that i, the balance between the security needs of employees and the accessibility needs help. constituents clearly as a balance and i suspect to day got balance as probably shifted. and we'll see a consequences of that, i think in the future a us marine has been sentenced after pleading guilty to disobeying his superiors. he had criticized the military leadership for the way they handled. the exit from afghanistan. steward sheller remains adamant, though about the top brass need to be held to account or senior correspondent, murat. gusty of picks up the story. there is the opinion that he got off very light . all things considered the scandal that he caused winter when right up to congress
5:08 pm
and the united states military, we will know it doesn't like scandal as it does. it's best to deter for those who would start scandals and it, it squashes scandals out sometimes in a very harsh way. so it was surprising that instead of a pads, jail t r. bob's a dishonorable discharge. all he was sentenced to was a $5000.00 fund, which will be dogged from his wages next month, as well as a letter of reprimand. there's told off basically, so he gets an honorable or less than honorable discharge, as well as gets to keep all of his or of the pension that he has worked up up to 17 years of service. before he went into the court. i he said that ultimately he had to bear responsibility for his actions. just as those above him had to bear responsibility for their actions as including the chaotic withdrawal from the canister. i did what i did because i thought it was in the best long term interest
5:09 pm
of the marine corps going forward. i'm still demanding accountability. there were those who supported him. who said that, yes, these evacuation was completely humiliating. it was insulting to all the americans that sacrificed their lives who owe their health in order to fight that born of canister. and for america to leave in such a manner was absolutely tragic. there were also those that said that we should have done this because the united states military has a different code of conduct. and so they're not allowed to criticize those above them of senior rank. but ultimately, over the course of all these videos that we saw released by him in the build up to this trial at he was making one point in one or one point only that somebody must be held accountable for the disaster. as many americans he, it that we saw at the end of august at the airport and cobbled people are upset
5:10 pm
because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table to say, hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate? everyone. i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his batt assumptions . not because i'm vindictive, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us. the terrorist attack the on the input of gobble and the 26th of august. it was a, it was a mess. there were almost 200 people killed. everybody has admitted that yes mistakes were made. but to date, nobody has decided to bear responsibility for what happened there and cobbled murat, gusty of. well they, taliban returned to power. following the u. s. exit has fail to improve the country security situation. according to local officials,
5:11 pm
more than 40 people were killed in an attack on a mosque on friday hours ago. at scores more were badly injured. a warning you may find the following images disturbing. the explosion happened out as she a mosque in the city of kandahar during friday. prayers was always on that day. a large crowd had gathered the taliban government say's its has launched investigation on it. it is very much of note that today's bloss comes just a week after an explosion, tor through another. she and mosque in the north of the country again during friday prayers. at least 50 people were killed, isis k claim responsibility for the tuck. our t contributor richard met her slicks back at what happened then asks why islam mc state is intensifying its deadly activities in the country. last week, a tragic terrorist attack in of galveston. the explosion occurred during friday.
5:12 pm
prayers at a mosque in conduce, in northern part of the country. at least a 100 people were killed or wounded. most of the victims has ara, she has an ethnic minority. isaac k quickly stepped up to claim responsibility for the attack. but with one intriguing detail, turns out the suicide bomber was a, you grew muslim from china's changing province. this is very interesting because you girls are indeed a minority muslim population in china. usually the only thing you hear about them is that the chinese government is committing genocide against them. well, here's something the media haven't told you. there are indeed many ogres in ghana stat militants who are members of various jihadist groups like al qaeda or isis. they're actually so many of them, the united nations put out a report in june about foreign fighters in afghanistan. the report estimates that there are between 8010000 foreign terrorist fighters, comprised mainly of individuals from central asia, the north caucasus region of the russian federation, pakistan and the shin,
5:13 pm
january tournaments, region of china, among others. although the majority are affiliated foremost with the taliban, many also support al qaeda. others are allied with iso or have i so sympathies. another one of these groups is e t i m, which stands for the east torcous don islamic movement. this huger extremist group used to be on the united states list of terrorist organizations. but for some reason, in 2020, the united states, remove them from the list us cozying up to terrorist groups, using them as proxies for regime change in countries. they don't like where we seen that before. latin america of ghana, stan syria, speaking of syria, there are 5000 uga terrorists over there, fighting alongside other johnhis. but just going back to afghanistan for the last 20 years, the u. s. has had an enormous military footprint on china's doorstep. now the most
5:14 pm
of its truth of withdrawn and the united states is shifting its focus from them, at least to china. us wants to keep china's border with janice, n as unsafe as possible, and a constant worry by tacitly endorsing for the very least turning a blind eye to terrorist groups. and the u. s. in the u. k. m is supporting separatist movements in china going back decade. this is all part of america strategy to mess with china. create chaos. divide and conquer with the united states is making a huge mistake once again. just like they back the magi, dean and the 1980s to fight soviets. now they're implicitly backing you the terrorists in order to fight the chinese. and, you know, there comes a point where you really have to understand that backing jihadists is not a good idea. there is nothing beneficial about someone's blowing themselves up and committing a terrorist attack. i mean, this is incredible. how many times is it going to take for the united states to realize that backing which i, dean in afghanistan or anywhere for that matter is
5:15 pm
a really bad idea. they did it in the 1980s. they back been loudon. it came back to bite them. it always does, and this is no exception. earlier we asked political commentator, crisp ambry and anti war activists. brian becker want the 20 year long american anti terror operation actually achieve from canister to decades. american reg, occupation has increased the number of to harvest groups, increased the energy high despite us on the growing, the afghan is done as a reaction soon. what the americans did to could industries at killing us to billions by drawing the bombing at science bill for i don't think we should hold off the american presence as being a forced to stability in afghanistan. it actually de, stabilize the country across the board. and it rebuilt support the tower, but the main point on makers is that the americans are not part of a solution in afghanistan, they were part of a problem. let's remember the big picture,
5:16 pm
the context. when the united states invaded afghanistan on october 7th, 2001, there was no isis. the whole war on terror by the united states, which is included the death of 250000 afghans during the past 20 years. and that has created that has created that has been the trigger or the catalyst for the further expansion of ice is or isis like formations. so from a on its face, the war on terror has been a complete and utter failure because rather than containing or stopping this kind of extremism or terrorism, it has accelerated and expanded it as a phenomenon. the former us national security advisor, john bolton, will be sharing his thoughts on the u. s. police selling with other foreign policy issues. when he sits down with ortiz going underground show, you'll be able to watch the full interview here on saturday. you say in your book
5:17 pm
the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment? as a former national security adviser, a fee by did ministration, foreign policy, especially on that kind of stuff. well, i think this is one of the few instances where by and, and trump agree on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many people thought were foreseeable, what biden did was take trumps deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as his own policy disregarded the advice senior advisers and the pentagon state department, the white house. and i think the consequences have been plain to say returned to afghanistan to control by the taliban and everything that's flowing from that,
5:18 pm
including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning and again, using afghanistan is based plan terrorist operations around the world. so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage, something by and believe then since at least 2009 se, se, ironically trump, the, we've done it to, i think it's a mistake for the u. s. make it's a mistake for stability. certainly, it's a mistake for the people of afghanistan. this is our key international still ahead . ceiling into a store moscow's not backing down after stopping a u. s. warship from apparently attempting to violate russian territorial waters. more coming up shortly with join me every thursday on the alex salmon show. but i'll be speaking to guess in
5:19 pm
the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. oh is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? was his faith in the world corrupted. you need to descend, have join us in the depths or remain in the shallows? ah ah,
5:20 pm
20 minutes into the program. welcome back. transport workers in italy are threatening strike action or brand new coven help pass system with rallies held in several major cities across the country. people are protesting against new rules which require all workers to either show proof of vaccination or a negative cobit test, or al school without pay or your correspond peter oliver, witness one such march in rome, he sent us this report afterwards. it's lee has become the latest country to see it . citizens upset about the introduction of coven 19 vaccine passports, the the e. u. green pass, a digital certificate that allows you to show that you've received a vaccination to is commonplace across the whole of the european union. however, in italy, they're looking to use it to a stronger degree than it is being used elsewhere. and that's why on friday we saw
5:21 pm
demonstrations in 9 different cities across italy. the largest of those demonstrations was interested in the northeast of the country. we can have a look at what was going on there right now. for fiesta, we are here to protest against the green pass for workers would think that the green pass is an unlawful tool, an improper one that should not be forced upon the workers because it is discriminatory. so we are demonstrating against this government decree or not like today, our constitution is being trampled on what is happening to there's light back in 1938 when i say no to this discrimination. i under the notice deepening classify it . we're not looking for compensation, both openness and opportunity for reasoning. here we are talking about economic recovery, but whose economic recovery have families left even more in crisis. those who previously could not make until the end of the month now find themselves in an average of $200.00 or 300 years less from having to pay for the test me. well, the reason people have been upset with this move by the italian government to
5:22 pm
demand that the digital coven pass. the green pass be shown is because they've gone farther than most of the european countries. people are going to have to show this in order to go to any job already you having to show it to, to get into restaurants, to eat indoors, also to go to, to more leisure activities. but for everybody to have to show want to go to work. that's a different issue entirely, especially when it comes with the prospect of a 1500 euro fine for those that can't produce a covey green pass. now we've heard from a union leaders, particularly those involved with the polson, with shipping, saying it could potentially cause huge problems with the supply chain in italy. because many of the workers who are employed and things like ports, they come from eastern europe and have been vaccinated with rushes, sputnik vaccine. now, the sputnik job is not approved by the european medicines agency. and therefore,
5:23 pm
if you've been vaccinated with sputnik, you can't get a european green pass, so therefore you would be be falling fall of the rules here. now those demonstrations took place on friday. we are expecting demonstrations on saturday of a different kind. now these are going to be organized by the, at the left party here in italy as well as the, the oldest union in the country. it's after the headquarters were ransacked to last week during a demonstration by fall, right, ellamin. so the anti covered pos movement. now they've organized this protest to say no to fascism across a tally and would be keeping an eye all not protested, as it develops throughout saturday. with u. s. consumers in the grip of an energy price surge, republicans half cold on president biden, to rethink his, pushed towards green energy and a joint letter. more than a 100 law makers argue his plans are anti american and absurd,
5:24 pm
and have cold on the biden administration to increase domestic conventional energy productions that the criticism comes amid projections not heating bills will rocket if there is colder than normal temperatures this winter. we expect that the nearly half of the us households that he primarily with natural gas, will spend 30 percent more than they spent last winter on average, 50 percent more if the wind to is 10 percent colder than average. since joe biden took office in january this year, he signed a number of executive orders aimed at moving america away from fossil fuels. construction of the keystone pipeline was halted and oil and natural gas leases on federal land stopped filling the gap plans for massive wind farm construction projects. the white house has also repeatedly reached out to american oil and gas companies, reportedly asking them to help lower fuel prices. not that's in despite of back in
5:25 pm
june oil drilling leases, previously approved by donald trump and one of velasquez national reserves being suspended by team biden. the president commented on that last week. last is pretty big, is not a lot we need to protect. but that's why i'm working to protect bristol bay for mining operation. they were threatened one of the world's largest salmon. that's where i'm refusing to sell off the arctic national wildlife reserved oil and gas economists. peter earl bleeds, biden's energy policy is driven mostly by ideology and shows little regard for the well being of ordinary americans. when power is variable and upon locations inefficient and solar, pow power is more expensive than coal gas or oil. and, you know, the big issue there, a storage problem. so, i mean, even if it works, it's hard to store that amount of energy the, the idea of biden,
5:26 pm
and dividing mysteries in the bottom are groups that the way to green a world require shutting off fossil fuels over night. and subsidizing spectra projects is just just absurd. the gasoline us was $2.69 between january 2016 generate 20. $21.00 in 10 months is risen almost 20 percent to $3.21. if, if what's happening now continues unabated, it will definitely come a drag on growth and possibly refers to recovery. we saw from the co policies in march, april 2020, and the dental crust. the middle class it will increase poverty. it could bring about the stagnation area conditions that we saw on the $7070.00. the policies are divided, ministration are not informed or, or driven by economic science or historical precedents. their approach like brussels, of purely ideological which means that even if you could predict negative outcome, such as somebody said, was scarcity causing rising prices. they implement them anyway.
5:27 pm
and something else to tell you about before we go to break rushes, the fence ministry is summoned. the u. s. military. a shame after navy forces blocked an alleged attempt by an american war ship to violate russian territorial waters in the sea of japan. with more on the story, here's ortiz, daniel armstrong, russia, the defense ministry, has summoned the u. s. military, a. tashay, after a u. s. war ship attempt to cross russian maritime borders in the russian far east . now that happened when the u. s. s. chafie attempted to cross the russian borders . the pizza, the great a warship had been operating according to sources in the sea of japan, up until the attack on the sea of japan is important because right there at the moment, russian and chinese forces undertaking military training. the maritime interactions 2021 taking place, and that includes the use of live artillery. now the u. s. s. chafie
5:28 pm
attempted across the board is and instead of taking heed of warnings, raised in color flags that indicates a helicopter taking off from its deck. he also makes it impossible to change its speed on its course. he was eventually persuaded to turn back by the russian anti submarine vessel. the admiral 3 boots. now, the russian defense ministry has called this a grave violation of international rules. whereas the white house, on the other hand, the said he still is not aware of any confrontation between us and russian warships . how that will affect the relations between the 2 countries. remains yet to be seen. johnny armstrong, running the bulletin, a reminder for all the big updates as we enter the weekend. do try and give r t a follow on twitter. our social teams are working to make sure you don't miss when others at times just don't like to talk about life or not.
5:29 pm
ah, what a piece of flesh is emerge. we don't have a therapy. we don't have a back seat. the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great to response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with
5:30 pm
and the surgeon's tactile perception as well as his or her eyesight helps a lot because you need to make sure you don't like the thread. well, placing the switches and robotic hands can't do that. not now, and i believe not ever, you can write software for the machine, but you cannot give it a human tactile perception. hey folks, looking forward to this one next up we got ron and clint howard. i've met both these guys individually over our adult lives, but i don't think i've ever talked them together and they've come together for the most appropriate purposes. they've written a memoir and the stars of it are not running, clint, it's their mother and father gene and ran shower, who raised don't write and also to, to the more creative guys i know, ron and clint howard. and lou boys is the name of the why not memoir right after this one, dennis miller plus one.
