either his dad, it is already being seen by some wealthy nations as an excuse to cut domestic corporate tax rates risk in any race to the bottom, or the j. 20 seems to be ending with one su, that we thought was put to bed before it even got underway. raising its head again nuts. the, the dispute between australia, france, and the united states, really over the orchestra deal. now that was the defense pockets the between australia, the united kingdom in united states. what it ultimately did that defense pack though, was it cut france out of a $66000000000.00 us dollar deal to provide submarines to australia. we saw u. s. president, jove i meeting with francis emmanuel micron on friday, reconciliation the pose word all over the hatchet well and truly varied. am hon shakes? no, i'm sorry, no, i'm sorry, no, thank you. no, thank you, being offered from the 2 leaders really. and am it now turns out though, that what was said by joe biden, that he hadn't thing may fully aware of exactly what was going on with the deal,
2:05 pm
might not be the case. we can now listen to what the u. s. president had to say and what is come out from the australian prime minister. i was under the impression that phrase had the form long before that he was young. and it was always a difficult decision force trailer. it was the right decision force trailer and worked closely with the united states in the united kingdom and we kept them up to date the u. s. administration with, well, we're at and i'll various discussions with france. i seems like there still might be a little more awkwardness over orcus to comb just yet. that's the way it looks here in rome at the g. 20 it all wraps appear this afternoon on sunday. i'll be bringing you. any news that comes out though, in those final moments here on our, to international while those attempts by the us in france to patch things up took 2nd place to the sweeping endorsement of that minimum 15 percent tax on the world against corporations. and economist explained to us why wealthy nations like us
2:06 pm
will be the main beneficiaries. it will never be in the, in the, in the interest of a government, the u. s. government and any other countries to get more taxes, but what they do with it. i mean, that's going to really implement who's been, who benefits new doesn't. generally speaking countries while you're kind of companies, rather basin of other countries are going to be much less affected by this than the, the global minimum taxable effect. those poor countries. i personally wouldn't try to create a, a global block of minimum taxes. but one thing that could be done is also to lower the barriers to, to bringing technology skills, information transfer to all the nations of the world. but actually the taxes are a barrier to that taxes don't they don't, they don't help better turn they, they're a barrier to spread of information the raises productivity and raises standards of living and all that sort of thing. paramedics and the u. k. a rating fears of an unprecedented crisis facing the ambulance service with one local department, even pleading with the public to think twice before cooling because they're simply
2:07 pm
on enough staff to cover the workload. south central ambulance service is declared to critical incident t 2 extreme pressures across our services. all staffing volunteers working extremely hard to respond to course, but the volume is overwhelming. that are absolutely situations where people voting many, many hours, both to get in to the hospital. and then once they've been in the hospital waiting to see a doctor, cause it has a detrimental effect on anybody who's waiting for hours either in london. so sitting in an emergency department, nobody working in those services wants to see that happens, but there is a huge amount of pressure on the chest. at the moment. meanwhile, ambulances are being forced to stay in cues for hours outside hospitals, which are struggling to cope themselves. with the demand for beds, a number of medics of posted pictures like these on social media, one paramedic demanding urgent action after showing 25 ambulance crews waiting to
2:08 pm
enter an emergency department adding. it's not even winter yet. while earlier this month the patient died off the waiting more than 5 hours in the back of an ambulance. we are right on the edge and it is the middle of october. it would require an incredible amount of light for us not to find ourselves in the midst of a profound crisis. over the next 3 months, the u. k. governments put the country on something akin to a war footing to deal with the coven cases, and also get ready for that crucial winter flu season. troops have been trained to dr. ambulances. some 4000 of them are on stand by to help the n h. s. cope with the winter season earlier, the british defense secretary said soldiers are also ready to assist with administering vaccines, testing for covert and other general support in hospitals. this is why new daily cove id cases in the u. k skyrocketed in july, they've remained high ever since. and doctors fear that those numbers combined with the flu season could overwhelm the health system. and it just keeps also want the prime minister to implement it more stringent plan
2:09 pm
b for this winter. that's gonna include vaccine passports, compulsory face masks, to although so far the government's holding back in there are other things that the government could could in it could be doing. and yes, they should be absolutely seriously considering mr. at this point in time before things go too far, hospital i working has been on what we call black alert, which means that that beds are absolutely full of patients up for a number of weeks now and we are not coming across the whole system. many hospitals are very full with patients and we know that hospitals actually been at their most efficient if they're not absolutely full up with at patients. and it does mean that it knock on effects that have at those patients who are waiting for urgent surgery who require in particular intensive care beds or high dependency care on not being processed or not being cared for in a timely way. and we know that is the case. there are 5700000 people on waiting lists within the us at present, which is probably going to get worse before it gets better. the fate of
2:10 pm
whistleblower julian sounds remained in limbo this week after a 2 day extradition appeal hearing at london's a high court. the u. s. is challenging britain's decision not to expedite him to america on health grounds is wanted by washington on 17 charges of espionage and one of conspiracy to hack a government computer assange exposed to alleged at western war crimes. but if convicted on all accounts, he could face a prison sentence of a 175 years, although it may be several months before a final verdict in the case has reached me . i. the judges just said they will take everything into consideration, but no ruling was handed out immediately. the entire day was devoted to hearing arguments before. busy by the prosecution for the grounds of appeal, why they want to appeal to judge's decision not to extra by the fund. and there
2:11 pm
were 5 grounds of appealing to the 2 main topic. so of course it's on just health and the assurance is a diplomatic assurance is given by the united states in terms of health. what the prosecution i've been trying to do is accuse a key medical, extra witness professor compliment of being disingenuous of misleading the court by concealing the identity of a sondors partner, stella morris and the 2 children we finally. 5 heard the yahoo news story, the investigative journalism that was done a few weeks ago where 30 us officials confirmed what we already knew from anonymous testimony, that the c i was discussing, plans to potentially kidnap or poison julian as orange in london. and so this was brought up in the context of why online, why professor coleman did not disclose the identity of a sondors partner and their 2 children, because he feared for their safety. and when it comes to the assurances that united states is giving, they say that drew an assumption service sentence in australia. but australia has not even indicated if they will take you in the arms. this is a processor can take many years. the truth is
2:12 pm
a jew in his arms will most definitely be placed in at least administrative segregation. and if not, he'll be sent to a special housing unit. so there's a wide array of tools at united states can use to break him once he's on us soil. and then most certainly will during both days of the hearing, a sante support is rallied outside court. they want his immediate release and child a journalism is not a crime. others express growing concerned with health thing floyd co found that the long time a song supported roger waters told oxy that he believed the whole case is a huge miscarriage of justice. this is an absolute nonsense that this man has been locked up for a single day. whether it's in the ecuadorian embassy or in bell marsh. this is, this is one of the most valuable human beings that we the human race have. amongst us. he is deeply, deeply important to the potential for this race to survive on this planet in my
2:13 pm
view. that is why julian has shown traits in prison because he's interfering with their cunning planter steel. the planet should have wrap it to death and then destroy. it is a disgusting miscarriage of justice. look at guantanamo bay, asked shaka, alma, my friend, ask anybody who has been in the hands of the u. s. judiciary. and at any point, possibly since the 2nd world war with a did not agree. and you will find that there's no justice to be found in the united states. i'm shall angry. and i'm so bad. i'm so dish gusted with the united kingdom. oh, i did a radio program last night, john ship, tim was on it and he was extremely eloquent. and i asked him how he, how he manages his grief and, and he was absolutely,

2:16 pm
anywhere in western europe to send a single dot short danish or german french soldier to fight in ukraine with oh, hello again. now it's not often that someone disappears entirely from the fbi i's most wanted list, but that's what happened to a man who said to been a key figure in january's capital hill, riots in washington. he was caught on camera telling people to storm the building. i was, his parents got some including republican party members, raising questions about who exactly this mysterious figure is in the wake. kellum open reported on that for us and individual featured and videos,

2:21 pm
i hope we are seen as a met averse company. and i want to anchor our work and our identity on what we're building towards facebook, changing his name to meta is so exciting. i've already forgotten that we just learned, they knew women were being sex tropic on the platform, and did nothing. facebook is now meta, our new logo is a rubber band because our morals are elastic. oh, and we stretch the truth. it doesn't matter what you call it. they're still selling our data. but the new name was unveiled alongside plans to build a so called meta verse, an online virtual world, where people can play video games, work, and communicate. the announcement pushed up facebook stop price by $1.00 and a half percent. and pondering how this new cyberspace universe might be implemented, his not one but 2 poly because within a matter of years, if facebook gets it away, a lot of us can be spending much of all. i'm looking something like this
