6:02 pm
a british national of somali origin has now been arrested on suspicion of his murder, rti shudder. edward dusty early 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 for treating him at the scene where 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,
6:03 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 forest johnson, 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 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
6:04 pm
a man who believe passionately in this country and in its future, or people in the local community. absolutely heartbroken and have held a vidual to remember his life. they say he's 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 1983, making him one of the longest standing m p. 's in government. now he was a big voice in many campaigns, not least the breakfast 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 and now calling for more security unsafe protocols for members of parliament in britain,
6:05 pm
especially considering the really chilling similarities to the murder of joe 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. so david, a, mrs. last tweet was actually talking about this constituency surgery invitation, saying to the local community to com and chat to him face to face for, for many m p. 's. this is a really pastor. no tragedy for them on to 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. david amos has been a frequent guest here on our tea, where he shared his opinions, some views on politics in the u. k. joining me now for more on this is conservative
6:06 pm
m p for south and west said david amos hobbs elected on the same day. 1983 as his gentleman. 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 is anything to do with party politics and the number of seats to david. thanks for speaking to us. i didn't all back. no former u. k. army officer charles sure bridge believes the public or unlikely to have such direct access to m p. 's in the future. following the gruesome attack at the, at my surgery. i think it's not an understatement. sets very sad day for british democracy itself fund. i'm sure 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 local level,
6:07 pm
this kind of work where they are open to 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 a, the balance between the security needs of employees and the accessibility needs help. constituents. clearly there's a balance and i suspect today that balance has probably shifted and we'll see a consequences of that. i think in the future in moving on now a u. s. marine has been sentence after pleading guilty to disobeying his superiors . he had criticized the military leadership for the way the humble, the exit from afghanistan. stewart shall remains other men though that the top brass need to be held to account, or senior correspondent but off gusty of pixel. the story. there is the opinion that he got off very light. all things considered the scandal that he caused winter
6:08 pm
when right up to congress 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 paddle 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 all the pension that he has worked up off the 17 years of service before he went into the court. ah, 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
6:09 pm
the best long term interest 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. it was absolutely tragic. there were also those that said that michigan douglas because the united states military has a different code of conduct and. a 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 a released by him in the build up to this trial at he was making 1 point 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 because they're senior leaders, let them down. and none of them are raising their hands and accepting
6:10 pm
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 and 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 bad 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 on the taliban to return to power. following the u. s. exit has failed to improve the country security situation according to local officials. more than 40 people were killed in an attack on a mosque on friday,
6:11 pm
scores more were bodily injured. a warning you may find the following images disturbing. the explosion happened out a shia mosque in the city of kandahar, and during friday prayers large cried as all was had gathered there. it's haldeman . government says it's now launched on infest the cation while today's bloss comes just a week after an explosion tore through another she a mosque in the north of the country, at least 50 people were killed. as la mac state correson province claimed responsibility for the attack. my colleague or t country peter richard mentors looks back out what happened then and asked why isis is intensifying its deadly activities in the country. last week, a tragic terrorist attack in afghanistan. the explosion occurred during friday. 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,
6:12 pm
she has an ethnic minority eyes. this 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, is jane jane, 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. believe something the media haven't told you. there are indeed many ogres in afghanistan, militants who are members of various jihadist groups like al qaeda or isis. there 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 terrace fighters, comprised mainly of individuals from central asia, the north caucasus region of the russian federation, pakistan and the shin, january thomas region of china,
6:13 pm
among others. although the majority are affiliated foremost with the taliban, many also support al qaeda. others are allied with iso or have iso 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 jaundice. 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 of its truth of withdrawn and the united states is shifting its focus from them,
6:14 pm
at least to china. us wants to keep china's border with janice, then as unsafe as possible, and a constant worry by tacitly endorsing. for the very least turning a blind to i, the terrorist groups, and the u. s. in the u. k. m. it's supporting separatist movements in china going back decades. 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 majority, dean and the 1980s to fight soviet. 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 jihad is, 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 gonna take for the united states to realize that backing which i, dean in afghanistan or anywhere for that matter is a really bad idea. they did it in the 1980s. they back been loudon. it came back to
6:15 pm
bite them. it always does, and this is no exception. and earlier we asked political commented or crisp ambry and anti war activist brian becker. what the 20 year long american anti terror operation actually achieve for against them. to decades, american leg occupation has increased the number of charges groups increase the energy high despite us on the growing doubt canister, as a reaction assumed what the americans did to could industry joining us to billions by drawing the bombing at science. therefore, i don't think we should hold off the american presence as be forced to stability in afghanistan. it actually de, stabilize the country across the board. and it rebuilt support the tower. but it made it 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, the context. when the united states invaded afghanistan on october 7th, 2001,
6:16 pm
there was no isis. the whole war. i'm 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 isis 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 phenomena. on the former us national security advisor, john bolton will be sharing his thoughts on the u. s. pollen to long with other foreign policy issues. when he sits down with ortiz going under grown show, you'll be able to watch the full interview here on saturday. you say in your book the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal, and that's trump's one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the
6:17 pm
deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment? as a former national security adviser of fee by the administration foreign policy, especially on afghanistan. well, i think this is one of those few instances where biden and trump agree on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many people saw it were foreseeable. what biden did was take trumps deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as is on policy, disregard of the advice of senior advisers and the pentagon. the state department, the white house, and i think the consequences have been playing to say return to afghanistan to control by the taliban and everything that's flowing from that, including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning and again,
6:18 pm
using afghanistan is a base to plan terrorist operations around the world, so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage, something by and believe den, since at least 2009 se, se, ironically trapped, believe dana 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. go ahead on our tea international sealing into a storm. moscow's not barking down for stopping a u. s. warship from a currently attempting to violate russia territorial waters. and more coming up with join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. i'll be speaking to guess of the
6:19 pm
world of politics. sport business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. oh well the gig is ah president other land merican country armed with volcano energy is calling out the wall street and the whole financier class ah, also for eric room identify 2 types of freedom, freedom, roman freedom too. and while we all idealized the lesser achieving the former, the freedom from use and abuse is no small feat in this day and age. this is especially true for africa, which, for centuries has been exploited under all sorts of pretext. what needs to happen with the continent to truly take its deserve place in the world? ah,
6:20 pm
ah, 20 minutes past 1 am here in moscow. welcome back. transport workers in italy are threatening strike action over a 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 cobra test, or al school without pay or europe correspondent peter oliver, witness one such march in rome. he sent us this report afterward. 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
6:21 pm
a stronger degree than it is being used elsewhere. and that's why on friday we saw demonstrations in 9 different cities across italy. the largest of those demonstrations was interested in the northeast of that country. we can have a look at what was going on there right now. we're based on we're here to protest against the green path 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 weird demonstrating against this government decree. positive. i don't like to doubt constitution as being trampled on what is happening to there's light back in 1938 when i say no to this discrimination anteriano the last evening cluster vite, we're not looking for confrontation, both openness and opportunity for reasoning. here we are talking about economic recovery, but whose economic recovery her 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 testimony. well, the reason people have been upset with this move by the italian government to
6:22 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 cove at green pass. now we've heard from a union leaders, particularly those involved with the pulse in which shipping saying it could potentially cause huge problems with the supply chain in italy. because many of the workers who are employed as things like ports, they come from eastern europe and have been vaccinated with russia's sputnik vaccine. now, the sputnik job is not approved by the european medicines agency. and therefore,
6:23 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 left party here in italy as well as the, the oldest union in the country. it's after the headquarters were ransacked 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 italy and would be keeping an eye on not protesting as it develops throughout saturday. with u. s. consumers and the grip of an energy pry, search republicans of cold on president biden to rethink has pushed towards green energy and a joint letter. more than a 100 lawmakers argue his plans are anti american and absurd, and have called them the biden administration to increase domestic conventional
6:24 pm
energy production. and that the criticism comes amid projections that heating bills will rocket if there is colder than normal temperatures this winter, we expect that the nearly half of the us households, that heat primarily with natural gas, will spend 30 percent more than they spent last winter on average 50 percent more if the winter is 10 percent colder than average. or since joe biden took office and 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 on oil and natural gas leases on federal lands, stopped filling the gap plans for massive wind farm construction project. and the white house has also reportedly reached out to american oil and gas companies, asking them to help lower fuel prices. that's the spike back in june oil drilling
6:25 pm
leases, previously approved by donald trump, and one of alaska national reserves, being suspended by team by the president commented on that last week. flask is pretty big, is an awful lot we need to protect. but that's why i'm working to protect bristol bay for money, not for issues that were threatening one of the world larger salmon. that's where i'm refusing to sell off the arctic national wildlife reserved for oil and gas. why spoke to economists peter earlier, but all that he believes jo 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 so of how power august is, is, is more expensive than coal, gas, or oil, and, you know, the big issue there, a storage problem. i mean, even if it works, it's hard to store that amount of energy, the idea of biden,
6:26 pm
and by the mysteries to buy them or groups that the way to greener world requires shutting off fossil fuels overnight. and subsidizing spec and projects is just just absurd. the average gasoline price us was $2.00. $0.69 between january 2016 july 20 . $21.00 in 10 months is risen almost 20 percent to $3.21. if, if what's happening now continues unabated, it'll definitely become a drug on growth. and possibly refers to recovery, we saw from the corporate policies in march and april, 2020, and out of that dental crust, the middle class, it will increase poverty. it could bring about the stagflation area, conditions that we saw in the seventy's. i mean, the policies of the by the administration are not informed or driven by economic science or historical precedent. or approach like brussels is purely ideological, which means that even if you could predict negative outcomes such as selling us, it was scarcity causing lodging prices. they implement them anyway
6:27 pm
rushes defense ministry has some in the u. s. military attache half their navy force is blocked and alleged a 10 by an american worship to violate russian territorial waters in the sea of japan. the u. s. military has denied the allegations with more in the story though . here's our teeth. neil 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 p to the great bay, the war ship had been operating according to sources in the sea of japan. up until the attempt 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.
6:28 pm
now the u. s. s. chafie attempted across the board is and instead of taking heed of warnings, raised is colored 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 is 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. yeah, we do it and see if our situation escalates in any way. that is where the we lead the run off for you. lee is going to be here at the top of the hour, with all the latest updates from what has been a busy day do hope you can join her then as well goodbye.
6:29 pm
ah, a oh, when europe is mentioned, what do you think a place an idea, a common place with diverging ideas? maybe you think of the european union, think what you wish, but europe is in crisis. it must choose between being in ideological construct or
6:30 pm
a place with real people. and real me and the surgeons tactile perception as well as his or her eyesight helps a lot. because you need to make sure you don't break the thread well, placing the switches and robotic hands can't do that. not now. and i believe not ever. you can write software to the machine, but you cannot give it human tactile perception. join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world. politics, sport, business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then. oh the little chill potion with on what it says i mid august or stu out with any initial it annoys the vehicle
