5:05 pm
to finish doing this, we are following the reported drone attack. this apparent act of terrorism which we strongly condemn, was directed to the heart of the righteous state. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable. the another say says we're the government and people of iraq, kristen colton, that he's come to rep, particularly now amid the u. s. military with pool. and that is why washington is watching events so carefully. the united states was among the 1st countries to praise the results of last month elections. of course, they will be particularly concerned and how things are developing their professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university, and by root jamal what came says the assassination attempt could have been designed to send a message. this bumping 1st could be a false flag on behalf of some kid grew to be taken by the prime minister as a justification for the correct down on demonstrations. this could also be

5:07 pm
percent. that follows several setbacks, including a whistle blows reports in the british medical journal that pointed to serious flaws in last year's vaccine trials. the silly patrol explains how many people do you know, who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety? well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career, but had never experienced such a helter skelter work environments. as we've been tabi on pfizer trial,
5:08 pm
i don't think it was good clean data. the employee said of the dates of interview generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firms tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower who'd worked for entirety a for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over quite a list of issues including things like this. bob, with both the whistle, laura provided the journal with internal company, documents, photos,
5:09 pm
and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contractor on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency and charge the food and drug administration know about any of that. within hours, jackson received an email from the f. d, a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her to the sta could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f. d a in spencer to discuss her reports, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no or at least were notified. did that lead to any oversight of the company? by the regulator? the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight,
5:10 pm
pfizer for emergency use in america. in phases briefing document submitted to an advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems of the vince javier sites the next day to issue the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that like disconcert a summary of f, the, a inspections of pfizer vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent army. and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authority ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been tabi, up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children and young adults. a cobra, 1900 trial involving pregnant women, and
5:11 pm
a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic in a global pandemic. we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty. we have an most duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being. the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospect in the future. ok, not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical jain. but what i want to be confident about is that someone confident whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the full. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags
5:12 pm
. we contacted pfizer, inventor of if a comment on the claims, as well as posing further questions for the us food and drug administration. they haven't responded as yet in want to run g ferrara, consultant, physician for britons. and a chess thinks faxing development has fallen victim to corporate greet. pfizer has formed this by no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that their commercial interests is compromising bay clinical and research. objectivity and judgment toward this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of science. i think though, the cost of applied and more people to the trolley kind of an adequate staff to run the trial, inappropriate way and as a constant commercial pressure. even the sub contractor to make profit, so to have fewer staff and generate results more quickly and cut corners in this way, commercial interest is pressuring or, you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug judges in canada have ruled that a comedian who joked about
5:13 pm
a disabled teenage singer did not breach the youngsters. right to dignity. comic mike ward held the decision by the supreme court as being part of a growing backlash against cancel culture. i'm like, oh, j. i one. this is a very, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i would want to tell him about how i fell when i 1st heard that they yelled as a 13 years old to chance. think about gang because a 40 year old man say so that you should guy, singer, jeremy gabriel, who's now 24 was born with a congenital disorder. the cause is sco abnormalities. he found fame in 2006 and
5:14 pm
even perform for poke benedict. some years later mike ward began mentioning gabriel's disability in his performances and defended his act by saying people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. family father, human rights complaint, but candidates high school said the senior was talks is not because of his disability, but because of his fame. while mister ward received support from the comedy willed others still believe such jokes should face consequences with a lively conversation about him. with a panel of guests you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion, i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister work comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things, but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it
5:15 pm
a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case it was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so, you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. got to charge in and find a guy, tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me and, you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that's wrong with it was a little different. and he, you know, yes to where a hearing aid i,
5:16 pm
we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy. he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if it was an address in his disability. he was suicidal after that. and you can be free to say whatever you want and be buying renting every way you want in that and you know, in your job, i'm in a shipper. now if you my teach my disable, you know, employee like that, i would go to court to because doubt consequence is for every one of us to what we do in our life. ok, it's not only speech is an action, no one's saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a last centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that. i'm a lot of comedians and,
5:17 pm
and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. ah, but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it in incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think it's very important and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job. will they just make big promises of climate change in cult 26 is protest is on the grounds, including gretz hudson birth say it's old halter that story. him all have to break her. ah.
5:18 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmon? sure. i'll be speaking to guess. will the world politics sport business? i'm sure business. i'll see you then. mm.
5:19 pm
ah ah, welcome back. it may be a global attempt to save the world from climate change, but the huge cop $26.00 summit in scotland is not impressing goods at simba. the swedish activist lashed out at the event while addressing crowds of the fridays for future marching glasgow. it is not a secret that call $26.00 is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot solve a crisis with the same methods that goes into it in the 1st place. and protest events have also been held ride round the will to coincide with cub $26.00 would demonstrate his echoing credits and bears cool for concrete action from those in power. ah
5:20 pm
ah. with look up $26.00 conferences now into it's 2nd week kicking off the event, the british prime minister warned of a doomsday scenario. all the american president vowed that the u. s. would lead by example, in the fight against climate change on the world's biggest polluters. india now said net 0 target by 2070, although last 2 decades later than many at home. although recalls for more money to be handed to developing countries, help them with that transition. other energy sources, your excellency,
5:21 pm
and another issue, anti saskia tail has been looking at how complying with the emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 his hair and it is going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need, is a setting out that goals for the future and that big ones, stop deforestation, switch to renewables, 0 emissions an ohio electric, nasty thing nature like a toilet. we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act. non client change is already ravaged oral. we only have a brief window up here for us to raise your ambitions and to raise to me to task sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches?
5:22 pm
it's easy for both chad and co promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others halfway around the world, saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is call we leave. if there isn't any call, we don't leave one pass and east and india setup, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on that pates. the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing large a industrialization stage, then you know what we can call one space. our time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their societies out of poverty, coal consumption and coal as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact for some time. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals
5:23 pm
of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for them. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is anti equity and against climate justice demands for net 0 emissions, for all countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just that developing nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be also that millions will be punched into poverty. now, it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy gonzalez? far away? the top 10 percent of countries consume 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent, and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that a call 20 sex. and remember when times were tough,
5:24 pm
winter was coming. a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a dirty source of energy when they begged for the taps to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far away and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution, and ensure the world we all my share, a cleaner, safer health is planet. we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the pallet realize what that p off from the slogans actually mean for millions of
5:25 pm
people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently. there's some countries that actually have small populations but are consuming a lot of energy and everything. a lot of are capita carbon. people can see all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they're really going to be themselves of it from coal. and i don't think that maybe realistic target will not much the 2015 about his account of it yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't believe a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries, kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the heroic murder of a woman, allegedly, by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped in a septic tank in 2012. the family believes that the details of the case were hushed up league. you the,
5:26 pm
i did johnny recently learned that is the british army vault because there were a lot of cover up to that. but we are glad that now think of being brought to light my wishes. the culprit to face the law because i had to be a burden that wasn't mine. i had my own children to take care of, though i was not employed, it has been a real struggle with the family of agnes when terror, when jacko. a canyon woman allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death . when jack, who was a 21 year old sex walker, any money to feed her newborn baby, and she was reported missing in march of 2012, 2 months later her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed. there had been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier axe, confessed to killing her lou, i feel so sad as those in positions to help us that took so long. recently, when the me des started air in the story top and old one,
5:27 pm
see that it's like agnes has just died. it has the been affected, her daughter, but we had to let her know what is going on. i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case. well, when i think of agnes, i remember how happy she was and she loved to sing it. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing. the person who killed agnes should face the law or because the child was orphaned, has suffered a lot of bearing in mind. she was just 5 months old. even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k. defense ministry. it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the canyon police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming will activists in kenya, calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable while the labor party here in the united kingdom say the 9 year old deal without an investigation even being can sit,
5:28 pm
has denied the family justice there's been no minister defenseless investigation of the soldiers involved or no inquiring toward the minister, the funds failed to respond when canyon detectives asked for help. 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelation to the tragic death of when jack continued to become more sinister, it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need to her. i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down her life was taken away, leaving us to fend for her young child. and it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into one jacket,
5:29 pm
his death officially closed at stores on investigations and to more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be served for angus. when jerry, when jacqueline and her family chateau edward sashay, r t london reps it up for this news outlets. more stories available on a website though you have chance. check them out by going to r t dot com what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is on often very dramatic or development only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successfully, very difficult time. time to sit down and talk
5:30 pm
ah oh, in the traditional motion picture story, the villains are usually defeated the ending of a happy one. i can make no such promise for the picture you're about to watch. a story isn't over.
