6:01 pm
with headline news 247 this is international. news this 1st for you that with most a vote counted in the fiercely contested european parliament elections and the establishment parties along with the greens and the liberals a set of big wins while projections show that the established centrist bloc is losing its grip on parliament one in every 2 eligible voters took to the polls the highest turnout in 20 years. let's break down some of the key numbers then it's a layman tell yourself a nice right wing party the league is projected to with 33 percent of the vote when france marine le pen's national rally is set to overtake president emanuel mccraw
6:02 pm
party with as much as 23 percent of the ballots austria's center right people's party also saw resurgent continental support there was a significant blow to neighboring germany too for the ruling coalition their share of the vote down by around 7 percent so far so how is all this expected to shape the european parliament for the next 5 years we're looking at a fragmented grouping to say the least with the established movements losing ground to the smaller parties despite the gains that they've made though these euro skeptic and right leaning parties the pro e.u. groups are still expected to hold on to 2 thirds of seats the biggest blow in these elections will be dealt to parliament a grand coalition of center left and right they're set to lose the majority that they've enjoyed for 40 years shudder to bensky reports next from paris. he sued the established parties of the center right down the center losing quite a lot of ground in that election and that of course could spell trouble for that either you grand coalition that's been the cornerstone of him since its inception
6:03 pm
it means that they will now have to leach out to a much smaller parties if they want to steal ridge of the european parliament on cool they was a soothing vote for anti establishment parties across the block i would parties like the national rally here in france and a leak in italy actually talking the polls in their own countries. to be nice holiday not only top the polls it looks like it's projected to get a around 28 seats in that this election a couple of seats from 2014 and so the need speaking to the press after those results are coming in said this was essentially people in europe saying that they want to see anything different other than the you'll get you today's vote shows that the rules of europe are changing it's not just due to the choice of the italians but also of the french the germans the british the hungary and the poles
6:04 pm
the finns the swedes the danes a new europe is born. well here in france we saw him being led pens national rally party topping the polls of course they also took the polls back in 2014 this time very slow each down on their turnout from the last election but still a very big result here in france particular as many people were seeing this is being a referendum on president michel whose party came in 2nd place they would just pick to the post they are trying to brush this off as noticed by the losses they were expecting but mocking the pen is now calling for those anti is. mr parties to phone a grand law within the european parliament to be a stronger voice and she's calling for a new shake up of politics here in france the source the president has no other choice but to dissolve the national assembly and allow for
6:05 pm
a more democratic voting system in order to better represent this country's majority political opinion the feeding of traditional parties and the polarization between the national rally party and the renaissance party confirms that the political scene is now split between nationalists and globalists and that's what dominates our political life there are also big wins for anti establishment ruling parties in countries such as poland and hungary the other big surprise of the night was the green folk which is up significantly here in france and also in germany and the projection is that they will get around 70 seats which is quite a surge compared to 2014 up around 20 seats on that but the reality is that make up now of the european parliament will be very different to that that we've known for not just the last 5 years but pretty much since its inception and what that's going to do is it's going to make it very difficult for the old guard
6:06 pm
to continue to keep watch and to push things down that agenda former italian foreign minister franco frattini told us he believes the euro skeptic parties could work as a catalyst for a better europe the new parliament would be have really shrug. there will be many small groups not always on the same line on many issues that. i think this new ball park he said bullied to go movements which. is one that was buried in a pan with the whole nation others. don't knock your present threat they care of presenting it pushing factor for the current elite to go to war was in deep trance formation because the what he eats alyan baltar is not only talents but he many other countries do what it is
6:07 pm
a transformation is to overcome the state or school days should be conserved even just they want to keep this teachers for 4 day all interests they should then be concerned eve day i would see a touched to the good for europe as a whole because the. impulse to push coming from those political parties can be very useful for making europe less bureaucratic more attentive to all to request even to do this fear of many many millions of italian court. and in the u.k. the breck said party which didn't even exist a few months ago has outgun the 2 main parties combined breaking down the results of westminster has he's really. the newly formed brags of policy we should point out in fact they've won by far the most seats in those european elections for the u.k.
6:08 pm
and as you mentioned they're getting more than the conservatives and labor combined and then lead. he's somebody who has been really a figurehead not just in these elections but in the push leading up to that referendum in 2016 for the u.k. to leave the ute and he bails out the boards of quality control can go on and be successful in general elections if we do not leave the european union. then just as we've surprise people in these european elections we will go full would an absolutely stunned them in the next general election there's a big wake up call here to westminster let's see whether they listen now the fortunes of the brags that party in exact opposite to the decimation of ukip and they went through the full 2014 elections having won 28 piece but since then they'd suffer the number of defections not a number of votes counted it's shifting over to the briggs and polity and in fact we could have a breakdown of some of the more prominent leadership of that bribes party.
6:09 pm
drugs that has been dominating the political sphere here in the u.k. to the point that perhaps votes is off fed up with it all and just want the politicians to get on with it now the 2 main parties here in the u.k. labor in the conservatives they had bad nights and tories of course are gearing up to try to get a new leader in place and they're going through that process now it is also worth pointing out that while the brig's of party did. well last night the leave parties in general did remain parties combined but the issue that the remained party face is the splitting of the vote between the lib dems who came 2nd in these elections
6:10 pm
and labor the greens and so on including the s.n.p. who have done well in scotland so again while a very good night for. votes is on the birds and party in general it's not as clear cut to say that this would indicate that they would win any 2nd referendum if there was one to be held the founder of the movement that later became the u.k. independence party says the governing conservatives should now put it into downing street. theresa may just resigned as prime minister she was one of the was prime ministers in british history the party she led was obviously demoralized by have resignation since the conservative party in government had failed to take the european union on the day we were supposed to come out that was the 29th of march the voters a big stream me angry in that. call t would be high in the polls is a lose all which is what is the significance of the vote in britain and indeed in
6:11 pm
every other country in europe is how it effects the major parties in the standing in domestic policy and politics and what's going to happen now is the conservative party in this incident saying. get a new leader who will take the european union deal or no deal by the 31st of the polity having made its mark and having given a short to the established parties. will stay there waiting to see what the tory government under a new prime minister does if the new prime minister takes britain deal or no deal on the 31st of it. then i think there won't be a general election in 2022 in which case during that period the party will just dissolve all those conservatives who went over to will drift back to the conservative party. the old youngest state leader austrian chancellor
6:12 pm
sebastian kurtz has been removed from power along with his administration following and now confidence vote in parliament it comes awake after the ruling coalition collapsed as a result of a corruption sting targeting the then vice chancellor. i can understand the feeling of revenge the wish to put yourself in a better position for the election but what i truly can't understand is that this vote of no confidence against me is now being extended to the entire government only a few days ago the goal was to remove me as chancellor that's maybe understandable as a tactic but the wish to topple the entire governments a few months before an election this is something i think nobody in this country will comprehend. that no confidence motion was tabled by the opposition socialist party and approved by a majority of austrian deputies members of the right wing euro skeptic freedom party and kurds was until a week ago governing with also voted against him the political crisis and the
6:13 pm
collapse of the ruling coalition began with the resignation of kurtz's 2nd in command last saturday that was after this video emerged of the freedom party's himes christian struck and offering a lucrative public contract to a woman claiming to be a relative of a russian oligarch in exchange for political support. subsequently dismissed the interior minister also a freedom party member over his apparent unwillingness to criticize truckers actions the rest of the party's ministers then staged a mass resignation in protest and were replaced by civil servants elections are currently scheduled to take place in september in the meantime the austrian president has appointed the former finance minister as can take a chancellor. despite the turmoil austrian voting patterns didn't substantially change in the e.u. elections and even the former vice chancellor has apparently secured a seat in the european parliament and kurds his party made significant gains coming out as the country's top party. and you feel i'm usually not at
6:14 pm
a loss for words but i'm almost speechless we expected a lot we were optimistic but this is a fantastic result this is never happened before we achieved the best results of all time with the biggest distance from 2nd place of all time it is simply unbelievable that read about these really believe it or leave perhaps early to say the least expected in themselves much of various sides so it was only about 2 and a half percent but if we don't buy bureaus that means that is if we don't buy through. her strong breeze in the past. 5 may be a good time in between the new all intellection supposed to show up because record i am going to read was lilly's most of the reporters had already made up their mind so they might change their mind. about him and their elections in 4 months. it's the holy month of ramadan for muslims worldwide but in finland teachers there
6:15 pm
say that the long hours of fasting are taking a toll on children's education and behavior the details and reaction when we come back. when else seems wrong. but. just don't call. me. yet to see. this day become educated and in detroit. trail. when something is find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground . i mean we were at camp grounds of america i think it's called there's like
6:16 pm
a chain of these campgrounds and trailer parks across america so yeah these types of organizations would be rolled out into the bigger rural so you have economies of scale you now have lots of was trailer parks all socialized according to one corporate behavior on wall street and there extracting nickels and dimes and a lot of people. can back teachers in finland the complaining that the muslim holy month of ramadan of the fasting that it entails is having a negative impact on the performance of students ramadan is noticeable due increasing sidey never d. school life we cannot 1st feature nor give injections with nutrients hindus advice parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful
6:17 pm
at home not at school without food this year ahead of ramadan the authorities in the southern finnish town of tampa had called on schools not to support the fast some institutions have reportedly been offering water that extended breaks to muslim students others though supporting the people's only month of ramadan is the most sacred in the muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink and other activities as well with fasting taking place between dawn and sunset is considered to be a month of purification before. and while politicians in germany including the health minister a calling for a more compatible form of islam to be formed to preserve european traditions and culture. instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missile journalistic form of islam we must promote the development of a european islam which shares our values in order to preserve our free european way of life and the crux of the road came down to the line between faith and
6:18 pm
flexibility when we discussed earlier on the program. young people are very religious and find the month of ramadan very spiritual i want to participate in the real key issue here is that there is a war against islam muslims our course your up there is a wide discussion to be had you know that muslims are very passionate about practicing their faith and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens who are not muslim about the benefits but also about the challenges of fasting i think finished. sensibly do run the best education system in the world with their liberal nordic minds decided that they wanted to help muslim kids out a little bit and are trying to inject a little bit of liberalism and a little bit of tolerance into people who otherwise should know better there is so called liberal societies like the scandinavian countries who talk about liberalism who talk of individual freedom of speech and if you do
6:19 pm
a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society and nothing that's deeply wrong yeah i think we're hearing these kind of stories regularly about muslim communities in europe in britain around the world trying to live their lives as muslims and they're finding themselves coming at loggerheads with authority figures specially around educations so if you go to tampa and you meet the finnish muslims and my kids are half inish you will see that they are very accustomed very tribal eyes come from a certain culture and tradition they're not used to having open dialogue integration liberal tolerant values which came from the islamic traditions to europe in the 1st place so muslims do need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what islam isn't and we need to get our house in order because muslims have got problems to deal with look i think whether it's the issue of. fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists so there's a lot of debate a lot of pressure on how do muslims whether they assimilate or whether they integrate central principles of the stomach faith are non-negotiable in this same
6:20 pm
where the jewish community want to be told what they can or cannot believe and i think that's a really dangerous precedent there's been so by the german government but also across europe this war on islam which is about demonizing and taking away the rights of muslims to practice their faith and i think the key point here is about tolerance it's about respect and for muslims it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance to respect our multi-faith coexistence and i can raise an issue in the islam you see today i'm not saying people should go on a hard manichean issue but we need to learn that values of tolerance and liberalism back from the europeans who took it from us in the 1st place and the islam that people are trying to move back to are not sure that's the way it should be. in the build up to memorial day this monday the u.s. army asked veterans to share their stories of how military service influenced their lives and goals and money expected result. serve something greater than myself.
6:21 pm
to you just that what you do i give to others to protect the ones i love and to better myself as a man in a way or how has serving impacted you come back cocktail p.t.s.d. severe depression anxiety isolation suicide attempts never ending rage it cost me my relationship with my eldest son and my grandson it cost some of my men so much more how did serving impact me ask my family i spend sleepless nights wrecked with guilt because none of the horror and suffering i've seen even matters because we're all just grist for a pay mill run by madmen because if i speak up and say and this war is wrong my battle buddies fighting their own demons ostracized me do y. get a reply for the dad they can't get anymore my husband became an ex because of his p.t.s.d. then he got agent orange cancer and died my cousin died of
6:22 pm
a rat chemical cancer my other cousin is in remission from the same thing at the moment and also has p.t.s.d. . to everyone who responded to this thread thank you for sharing your story your stories are real they matter and they may help others in similar situations the army is committed to the health safety and well being of our soldiers suicide is a major issue among veterans despite the reduction of the overall rate of $6000.00 die every year mostly with firearms and if young service personnel in the 34 years old who are specially at risk the vice president of veterans for peace in us says that many soldiers are left to deal with their problems by themselves. and america people like to put soldiers on pedestals and create heroes out of the soldiers are last in their bind where they are being simultaneously hero worshipped
6:23 pm
and having to deal with really traumatic. experiences in lives has it really negatively impacted my life and way is that i'm just not even yet comfortable speaking about it made it difficult for me to have a family i had p.t.s.d. and depression for a decade without even realizing it is not anything i would wish on anybody to join the military and yet i know some for some people it's their only way to try to get out of where they're at it's no wonder the suicide rates are so high amongst the veteran population because that kind of intense experience when people are still trying to figure out who they are as a person is just it could only. make life more difficult for the individual. for me thanks for watching shawn thomas hoshko next r.t. world news in just over 35 minutes.
