a tense exchange in the parliament just have become paid to live as a scathing assessment of brussels saying it's no longer in touch with the citizens . the european project seems to have lost its momentum but we have seen the transfer of power is increasingly from the countries to the union my question for you mr conti is how much longer will you continue to be the puppet on salvini and in my own strings. europe faced with an economic crisis without precedent is withdrawing fifa legal procedures and when it is progressively lost contact with its people it is so painful for me to see italy's political degeneration. progressively in this policy has lost its representative justification to become an oligarchy system where the real needs of society are ignored that it is your government that is openly spiteful against other member states who are members of our european family it is the italian government that is start the european union from being united against madeira and you know why it's come under pressure from
10:03 am
the kremlin under pressure from putin that is the truth it was quite the debut speech at the european parliament in strasburg by the italian prime minister just seppi conti outlining the future of the european union as italy sees it and also looking out the challenges to the goals that rome wants to achieve his speech caused calls today should in the chamber we heard from. the senior european parliamentarians and certainly no shrinking violet going as far as calling prime minister come to a puppet there was some support for the italian prime minister in the chamber from british m.e.p. mr concert the determination of your government to resist the privileged power access of merkel and macron and indeed to resist the pressures of the european union elites on show here today you deserve applause for that the european union

top brass and roma been going back and forward for a while now big arguments last year over the budget that was put forward by the italian government it included things. like tax breaks for low in middle income earners a lowering of the retirement age and a multi billion euro universal income plan all of the good stuff the problem is really is broke it's debt stands at one hundred thirty one percent of g.d.p. trying to put forward a budget provided these things well it's just against the rules of being part of the european union eventually did cave in to brussels but they go to come back and back for more we've heard from the deputy prime minister. he's also the interior minister of italy he described it mr starts comments as shameful and he said that at the upcoming european elections those that have supported brussels bureaucracy well they may well find themselves ousted by the people at the ballot box but spare
10:05 am
a thought though for some of those at the upper echelons of the european union structure at the moment they've got poland and hungary certainly not playing the game the way they would like it to be played in brussels italy i think we can definitely say are in that group as well and with all of that there's a little thing called briggs that going on as well. meeks documents a claim to reveal a u.k. based campaign group with us to come up with a plan to try to get cattle stripped of the world cup in twenty twenty the fair and let me propose to run a p.r. blitz to spread negative news about the gulf kingdom in return for a hefty fee the group headed by a prominent u.k. based to teach us to run former british prime minister david cameron's successful election campaign and actually our chef key picks up the story. it's almost a tradition now that every time a major football tournament is to take place scaremongering about the host country
10:06 am
gets into full swing unless it's a country like germany of course in less than four years qatar will become the first middle eastern state to host the world cup and everyone's got something to say there are even whole books written about it qatar has won its right through foul means the tiny middle east country of qatar may have won the right to host it due to a secret campaign to sabotage rival bid sunday times newspaper is alleging that those involved in katter's world cup bid team ran a kind of secret black ops campaign designed to sabotage its main rivals bits this time however it may have gone beyond just bad headlines newly documents seen only by the guardian newspaper and the spin watch competing groups suggest that a famous political strategist company c.d.f. partners was speech to a contract to make sure qatar's dream of welcoming the world's best footballers collapsed how by spreading negative stories about qatar in the mainstream media
10:07 am
associating dollar with terrorism running fake grassroots campaigns and social media and lobbying friendly politicians journalists and academics we have a chance to talk to professor david miller from the spin watch group seriously this is the other techniques of the p.r. world isn't this deception as many puting social media trying to propose the problem with the qatari government is here to support terrorism and extremists in the muslim world now of course this is a set of techniques which they've used before to try and suggest that the country should isolate which are based on nothing very much the c.t.f. partners company both a major success in political campaigning it led the u.k.'s conservative party to an unexpected general election victory in twenty fifteen it's found. and they hear this sir lynton crosby was awarded night hood from the van prime minister david cameron so there is little surprise that somebody would hire these company for
10:08 am
a job probably just as difficult to put direct pressure on sci fi to reverse its decision about holding the twenty twenty two world cup in qatar here's a quote from the leaked documents we would identify all potential allies in the media politics industry academia and government should reach out to them going a deliberate attempt to inform and motivate them about the need to reconsider cattles hosting of the world cup in twenty twenty two below suggested that the c.t.f. partners company was interested in that job not only given it and name project ball detailing the concrete plans to fulfill it but even putting a price tag on it three hundred thousand pounds a month with the overall price for the contract exceeding five million however in a statement to the guardian it denied and tearing into that contract it is legitimate for one party to use the services of people or entities or clients to
10:09 am
put important information into the public domain and in fact to man or the big question is who was the client both the guardian and spin watch point at qatari opposition figure. who is based in london and has a history of organizing events against the ruling powers of dora three hundred thousand pounds a month for a p.r. contract for this client to. want to be qatari prince who lives in london. we have reached out to hollywood all hail for comment but we haven't heard from him yet according to the lawyers for cross protect never took up the contract so that's what we're led to believe is the case so it's not entirely clear whether the coroner. in. so we're still unsure but there is no direct evidence that such a legit attempts to hire political strategists to discredit host countries of
10:10 am
a major tournament have existed before would ask yourselves would you be surprised if it ever surfaces considering that every time the world is about to enjoy a feast of football the media and politicians are having a field day. reporting from moscow. we contacted c.t.f. partners about the matter their response fell to shed much light we've asked them for fair their clarification we've also contacted fifo for their reaction they told us that they have no comments on this story. syria is demanding action from the un security council damascus accuses the u.s. led coalition of killing sixteen civilians and injuring dozens more in a bombing raid on the border with iraq. of india waiting three raptly filmed the aftermath of what a pest have been a combination of etheric and shelling arty smart our staff takes
10:11 am
a closer look. syria again is accusing the united states of war crimes february twenty ninth in the u.s. led coalition committed a new crime against innocent syrian civilians is we're playing targeted a civilian camp in the village of who's in the countryside of the governorates of. sixteen civilians including seven children were killed and seventy civilians most of them women and children were injured syria again calls on the un security council to stand up against these crimes and attacks and to shoulder its responsibilities in the maintenance of international peace and security here is what happened in. syria is a small village which happens to be one of the last islamic state on claves in syria and it is in the firing line the u.s. led coalition its troops and allies on the ground pressing it from all sides and the media's there to watching this isis village burton final push to defeat isis
10:12 am
the villages their last remaining stronghold in northeastern syria days away from victory days before they saw the end of the caliphate the problem and a serious one and that is that aside from the five six hundred isis fighters there are hundreds upon hundreds of civilians innocent whom the terror group was holding hostage using its human shields liquid you can lucian killed a lot of fun unless they killed a lot of fatherless a lot of children this time the u.s. led coalition hit a mosque and the coalition has a rule never to hit mosques they're protected except when it stops being a mosque because the pentagon says so this my. our school lost its protected status when isis deliberately chose to use it as a command and control center lot of first time they hit the mosque which stopped
10:13 am
being a mosque packed with people the incident near aleppo springs to mind yes the coalition takes all reports of civilian casualties seriously investigates for months or years writes an apology note when everyone's forgotten and moved on almost always the terrorists fault yes the u.s. is fighting terrorists in syria but it was never invited to it invited itself then to be able to say good job boys we beat isis it should be formally announced sometime probably next week that we will have. one hundred percent of the caliphate . but i want to wait for the official word now i want to say too early we have won a good study says we've beaten them and we've beaten him badly now we've won it's time to come back you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of ice and see
10:14 am
a resurgent you know her room doing no good come back if we have to give. us states of north dakota who's seeking to restrict access to public records relating to place and government operations it comes off her number of her door and foresman to pieces where experienced kind of maupin picks up the story there are members of protests out in standing rock in response to the dakota access shale oil pipeline it seems like old news but two cases are actually pending in federal court still and at this point we've got many people who can remember how horrified they were when they saw the government's response to peaceful protesters.
10:15 am
well critical legal information about what actually happened during those protests may soon be unavailable to the public a billion animists lee passed by the north dakota state senate would forbid the publishing of information in the. related to quote critical infrastructure that term might sound vague but pipelines are actually included and now they say that this new law is necessary because of cyber security but it's going to be a big relief to police and other law enforcement agencies that actually complained about the release of such information in a document that was made public via records request however they were far more
10:16 am
critical in emails that were leaked one non credentialed media group involved in high profile actions would request publicly available records to a done a fine law enforcement agencies and persons involved i'm still doing some checking on the legality of everything and what i'm forced to release. is there a preemptive way to prevent the city of bismarck from disclosing any law enforcement product produced by bureau of indian affairs personnel leaked documents also show that a private security firm known as tiger swan was heavily involved in the crackdown on the protesters documents show them referring to the protesters as jihad us and insurgents since the movement generally followed the jihad this insurgency model while active we can expect the individuals who fought for and supported to follow a post insurgency model after its collapse but despite all the bad press and protests the dakota access oil pipeline is moving forward trying to sign that on
10:17 am
his fourth day in office to kota excess but. again subject terms and conditions to be negotiated by this. and if the new north dakota law sealing records actually goes forward we may never know the full story of what happened when protesters got in the way of powerful oil companies kaleb up and r.t. new york. several prominent french journalists have found themselves suspended after it was prevails they belong to a group that's been harassing women online for almost a decade that story and much more after the break. chose seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any old
10:18 am
belief to shape out these days you can't get educated and engagement because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. after a rather bumpy rollout the new green deal is upon is co-sponsored by democratic firebrand alexandria ocasio what does the plan foresees a radical restructuring of the american economy and how people will live what the plan does not address is how much it costs how much will we have to go into the red become green. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see that.
10:19 am
the recent u.s. pullout from the i.m.f. arms control treaty could cause panic in north korea's military plan i can't characterize whether they're happy or not but i'm sure that it makes them very nervous and it is certainly changing their calculus complicates their planning absolutely for the u.s. quits the landmark cold war era nuclear arms control treaty at the start of the month russia followed suit and never tell a tory measure they are an f. treaty was signed between president ronald reagan then the soviet leader mikhail gorbachev in one thousand nine hundred seven it bound ground control ground to launch missiles with a range between five hundred and five thousand five hundred comatose. what we're now joined by paul engram executive director of the british american security
10:20 am
information council welcome to the program so the us commander says america's pullout from the i.n.f. treaty might complicate the military planning of north korea what's your take on that. well i think it's decidedly unhelpful and irresponsible as a comment to be honest because the situation with north korea does not meet staking out withdraw. from the i.m.f. by the americans does not significantly shift balance of power or forces within the region of north east asia and for these comments to come out seems to me to be a. post event justification for an unjustified action we talked about balance of power that believing that i never treaty could potentially mean the u.s. putting missiles within the range of north korea and china how dangerous could that be. well they already have many missiles within range of north korea and china
10:21 am
they're based on ships and aircraft and those do not those are not limited by the i.m.f. treaty what we're talking about here is the possibility of putting missiles on land perhaps let's say in south korea or japan or taiwan i think i think we're still quite some way away from the possibility of those governments making very serious decisions to host such such missiles and i think that would cause a lot of problems within those alliances so i think i think we need to be a little cautious about jumping in on talking about this being a big step up in the arms race at this stage but the fact that the u.s. commander is raising this issue i think demonstrates a certain disregard for both allies and adverse or is in the region and does stoke up tensions but i would urge those both our allies and adversaries to to be
10:22 am
a little cautious about seeing this as an inevitable next step and how do you expect china and north korea to react. well i would say i would urge them to react with caution i would ignore these particular comments as i say these comments a largely made as a post hoc justification for an unjustified action in leaving the i.n.f. treaty i would look more at the possibilities or plans to actually cite intermediate nuclear forces or other conventional missiles in the region and it will there will be a long lead time before those missiles actually go into the region but it will require open and transparent negotiations with with host governments who are i must say and hope would be would be in opposition to such deployments and looking ahead as well given that the next came trunk meeting is planned at the end of this month could the ins pull out throw a spanner in the works perhaps. if this is an isolated comment today.
10:23 am
and i would say the. summit will go ahead unless there are other bigger issues that will get in the way between now and then of course what the consequence of the summit is is is another question entirely because the last summit does not. does not give a great deal of confidence that these two leaders are capable of talking about anything concrete i would i would i would point more to the relationship between north and south korea in terms of opportunities for progress or otherwise talking about north korea then do you think north korea will halt any further me toward steve nuclearization as a result of washington's withdrawal not yet. but then again on the other hand north korea is not moving towards denuclearization at this step in any case
10:24 am
there has been a warming of relationships there has been a sale of missile tests and of further development of nuclear warhead designs but there is still the production of fissile materials that's the components of nuclear weapons and for all we know when probably gas the north koreans have no intention yet of going taking moves to concretely remove their nuclear weapons unless the americans can give them much greater satisfaction and there's no indication at all that the trumpet ministration is any intention of giving them satisfaction so i would be very hesitant to talk about north korea denuclearization at this stage with or without the u.s. withdrawal from the iron treaty thank you for your comments my guest pulling graham executive director of british american security information council thank you. thank you. and number of prominent french chain. it has been suspended after
10:25 am
