2:13 am
but he has prominently lost his moral authority on this issue. and since the issue of the time demick has been the biggest issue for the last 2 years, he will always speak, we can from now on. can johnson come back from the brink? the coming weeks will tell, but policy it has once again shown 2 things. does nothing boaters have more than a lying politician? except when a line politicians stop them, having policies but goes ahead with their own police in the united kingdom have arrested 2 teenagers in south manchester to be questioned by counter terrorism police over saturday synagogue hostage crisis in texas. the suspect in that incident has been identified as a 44 year old british citizen who interrupted a morning service taking for people hostage situation ended. the death of the suspects when a swat team stormed the synagogue following a 10 hour thunder. all the hostages were freed and left on hom. both precedent by

novak chuck, of which has been denied and opportunity to win a milestone 10th title in australia. political pressure has led to the revocation of his visa to satisfy public interest. it begs the question whether athletes will from now on, be incarcerated like criminals, and deported when it suits the political interests of powerful individuals. we'll talk of issues 1st, detain for not being vaccinated bus. he was released after he went to court battle, where his defense team pointed out that he recently had cove. it title so mostly wrongly filled out an immigration form. but what really concerned australia's immigration minister was that he feared joke of his presence in the country mighty unrest, as anti faxes were rallying around his course. so he decided to deport the tennis star, overruling the court. 3 judges unanimously upheld that decision. meanwhile, he joke, which is home nation of serbia, people have been expressing their anger and frustration at that decision throttle.
2:16 am
it's a shame he's one of the greatest sportsmen of all time. i think it's a political decision by the australian government, especially because he comes from serbia. i think we all took the decision personally some extent because no joke of it is a great man of his people. it's a fox. people identify with him with his success and also what he just went through . that's exactly, i think the outcome of the story was expected. politics got involved, but at the same time they gave novak the opportunity to become a symbol of freedom. by planting the seeds of freedom he has done very well, and i congratulate him for that. we spoke to independent journalist charlie boyle. he says, the australian government miss handle the situation. well, i think it's a mixture of politics for an election and just the general trying to nation and a company that's been happening a lot down downs in australia in particular, everyone should be treated the same device. so you shouldn't got to go straight.
2:17 am
you should have been much more clear about just mr. just told him not to come to get back to like everybody else, but the dropping and trying to call expect somebody to come across the wound and that you are and then spend a week in jail, which is the fact that he was there always we just want people call me back all the time or the medical exams, but the end of the day they come into the country. that's the box for me. oh no, no, they use care. this pointed the finger of blame and moscow saying that it was behind fridays, massive cyber attack on ukrainian government websites. it's an accusation which russia denies brushing it off as baseless. now this all comes attention to russia and the u. s. escalate, mary, comedian and officials claim russia is preparing a false flag operation in ukraine. moscow slammed those allegations as well, noting the nato promises to curtail its advances. close it's of russia have yet to

2:19 am
propaganda campaign mounted by the us and the campaign that makes russia very nervous. so up, so as america trying to calm things down or trying to raise the, the war fears i look at if russian troops had advanced the borders of germany. i mean, what to europe with the very concerned. and they would, they would demand some kind of. busy concession to buy the russian, but the now that nato is advanced to the borders of russia. somehow, nato can't understand what the fuss is all about. this is ridiculous. millionaires ro in manhattan has the most expensive apartments in the world. they cost hundreds of millions of dollars. the property tax on them is only a fraction of what they are worth. it's adding to a growing problem of affordable housing in the city for the less well off on the east coast on caleb moore. pet reports the south of central park and manhattan are
2:20 am
7 skyscraper buildings that are referred to as billionaires ro. these are homes only affordable to the ultra rich, while billionaires ro is certainly driving up rent and housing costs for average citizens. one thing it is not doing is increasing tax revenue. new york city's property taxes are based on assessed value, not the sales price residence of 157, the luxury apartment building. that's part of billionaires ro, also get a tax break because the company owns some affordable housing far away in the bronx . it's a pretty convenient loophole that allows the billionaire residents to have some of their tax burden. east. i've looked into the controversy with former new york city council candidate and lawyer marnie hall. last is a huge tax discrepancy. and you know, a lot of activists have been calling and the $421.00 a tax subsidy because the city loses so much money. and in $22011700000000.00 of money that the city could have got for city services. we don't have so that's, that's a real problem and it creates
