company in joint developer of the pfizer, cobit vaccine, bio and tech have plunged 20 percent. it follows several setbacks, including a whistleblowers report and the british medical journal. pointing to serious flaws in last year's vaccine trials. artillio, katrinka can tell us more. 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 experience such
7:08 pm
a healthy skill to work environment as we've been harvey on pfizer trial. i don't think it was good clean data. the employee said of the dates of ins. harvey 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 firm's 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 worked for ven tabio 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. the, the
7:09 pm
the, the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents, photos, 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 contract or on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency in charge the food and drug administration? no about any of that. we didn't know is jackson received an email from the f d a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f. d. a could not come in on any investigation that month result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f. dea inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to the report. the right people apparently didn't know or at least were notified that lead to any oversight of the company. by the regulator. the answer is
7:10 pm
no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in 5, this briefing document submitted to an f d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems. vince obvious site the next day, the f. d. a issued the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details, but right 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,
7:11 pm
1900 trial involving pregnant women, and 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 up must 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 competent, whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the
7:12 pm
full. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. contacted pfizer and been ta via for comment on these claims, as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. but they have yet to respond to our increase dr. n. g r i consultants position for britain's n h s thinks vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate greed. pfizer has for me 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 the commercial interests is compromising bay clinical and research objectivity and judgment. what this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of signs of a though the cost of a applied and more people to the trolley kind of adequate staff to run the trial. in appropriate wayne is a constant commercial pressure, even with a sub contractor to make profit. so to have fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, commercial interest is pressuring, you know,
7:13 pm
what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug centers in canada have ruled that a comedian who joked about a disabled teenage singer did not breach the youngsters rights to dignity. a comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against cancel culture. i'm like o j. i one. this is a vest, 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 if 13 years old to chance. think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should die. the now 24 year old singer jeremy gabriel was born with a birth defect that causes scull abnormalities. he found fame and talked 2006,
7:14 pm
and even performed for pope benedict. some years later, mike ward began mentioning gabriel's disabilities in his performances and defended his act by saying that people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. they rules, family filed a human rights complaint, but canada, the highest court said the center was targeted, not because of his disability, but because of his fame. and while mr. ward received support from the comedy world, others still believe such jokes must face consequences. we had a lively discussion about it here on our tea with a panel 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 ward 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
7:15 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 he 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. but 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 from what is it was
7:16 pm
a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. 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 him be buying renting every way you want in that and you know in your job, i'm going to printer. if tomorrow i treat my disable, you know, employee like that, i would go to court to because that consequences for every one of us to what we do in our life. okay. it's not only speech is an action, no one 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 lot of centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that, a lot of comedians and,
7:17 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. 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 incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job still ahead. after claims of a high level cover up kenya reopens a decades old proven to the murder of a young mother, allegedly at the hands of a british soldier that's coming up shortly. ah
7:18 pm
ah ah, ah ah ah, ah. with so i join me every 1st bit on the alex silent. sure. i'll be speaking to guess of the world of politics, sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm
7:19 pm
ah ah, welcome back to the program. now it may be an attempt to save the world from climate change, but the huge cop $26.00 summit in scotland is not impressing grad thornburg. the swedish activist lashed out at the event while addressing crowds at the fridays for future march and 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. protest events have also been held around the world to coincide with cop $26.00 with demonstrators echoing gretta thornburg's call for those in power to take action. aah!
7:20 pm
with with the car $26.00 conferences now into it's 2nd week kicking off the event. the british prime minister warned of a doomsday scenario while the american president vowed the u. s. would lead by example, in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070. although that's 2 decades later than many had been hoping for. while there were also calls for more money to be handed to developing
7:21 pm
countries to help with their transition to enter other energy sources. here are excellence team. it is my plan. and on that issue, our t. saskia taylor has been looking at how complying with emissions goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 his hair and it's going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need as a setting out their goals for the future. and then big ones. stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions and ohio electric you nasa fi 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. now. client change is already or avenue world. we only have a few for us to raise our vision to raised me to task.
7:22 pm
sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for both chad and co to promised a ton off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way round the world saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is a car we leave. if they reason any call, we don't leave one person and east and india set up, but over 4000000, all those 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 ward a live industrialization stage, then you know what? we've gone 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. or sometime. in fact,
7:23 pm
tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals 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 until i 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 plunged 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 consumed 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
7:24 pm
hear anything about that, a call 20 sex. and remember when times were tough, winter was coming, a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a doughty 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 way 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 must 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
7:25 pm
planet, realize what that p off from the slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently. there are 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 are really going to be themselves of it from coal, and i don't think that they are very realistic targets will not much the 2015 batteries accord targets yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here, and i don't be a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries. penya has reopened a criminal probe into the heretic murder of a woman, allegedly bias a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012. and our family believes that the details of the case
7:26 pm
were hushed up league. you the hello johnny. we recently learned that is the british army involved because there were a lot of cover albums do 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 bear burden that wasn't mine. i had my own children to take care of them, 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 when 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, though it's been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier acts confessed to killing her. but with i feel so sad as those and positions to help us that took so long. recently, when the me des started. aaron,
7:27 pm
the story told friend old one, see that it's like agnes has just died or it has it 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 either. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing, or the person who killed agnes should face the lord, or because the charge was orphaned, has suffered a lot of bearing in mind. she was just both my soul to prevent even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k. defense mystery. 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 kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming. will activists in kenya, a 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
7:28 pm
investigation even being considered has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the sold is involved, or no inquiring to why the minister defense failed to respond. when kenyan detectives asked for help, 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of when jacka 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 to all sins they so desperately need to go. 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 defense for her young child. i mean, 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 jack,
7:29 pm
whose death officially closed at stores on investigations into more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there. will this mean justice may never be solved for angus when jerry, when jack, who and her family? chateau edwards dusty r t. london. thanks for watching the weekly on our, to international. we'll be back with more in just about 30 minutes. so stay around . ah ah. ah russia, this class of car was discontinued more than 20 years ago. and even though say more than welcome to new orleans, the model will sort of can you so it will put that rubbish deal,
7:30 pm
but it's just important practice. it took 5 years to close again up on the well car industry, from the drawing board to the 1st finished model. scripture so will over certify excellence controls, key of dealing with the law firm ocean from a small school. well, we'll shoot for shift with commercial so 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 often very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk.
