11:30 am
hello and welcome across soccer all things are considered on p roosevelt all across the board trump is down in the polls and not just by a pointer to traditionally incumbency alone is enough to win reelection but this time around it is a race trump made lose and let's be clear this has little to do with joe biden how did we get to this point. to discuss this and more i'm joined by my guests across in washington and she is a democratic strategist and political analyst and in los angeles we cross the joe
11:31 am
collins he is a g.o.p. congressional candidate in california's 43rd district or across up rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i was appreciate ok traditionally i go to the person that got up early is for this program as joe in los angeles welcome to the program joe and i hope i have a nice cup of coffee to keep you company donald trump's in trouble in the polls and one in looking at the candidates the of joe biden which i have to say quite honestly i can't imagine how it inspires anyone so obviously this is getting down to being a referendum on the tram time terms of time in office was that a fair characterization a referendum less than an election. no i wouldn't think so and a reason why is because he was down in the polls whenever he running into every clinton and it's not double digits like this i'm sorry yeah i mean still going to close down the polls regardless of how much you're down i think what
11:32 am
they have to remember. he's running against joe biden i mean he's in my veins and i'm one of the most racist politicians and the entire united states and when you think about his history and politician if he you know out of place america then why what he did and why he was in the senate in 2 he would have probably you know how barack obama fix america by the fact that he feels like right now in these times of things something that he feels is broken in my opinion asinine i think trump is going to win this election he's running against joe biden who my pain is not a great candy for office to present a united states where i mean i said i said in my introduction when you mean we look at the history of the presidency the likelihood of being reelected the incumbent being reelected is quite high ok but obviously exceptions when it's a trend here and donald trump isn't really. duplicating that trend again the same question to you it seems to me it's much more a referendum on the occupant in the white house and has almost nothing to do with
11:33 am
joe biden you're free to disagree obviously go ahead and disagree that what we are seeing with president trump is a president she has aggressively gone against the grain of all things when it comes to moralistic being someone who is seen as presidential she is taking this role of big enough to work terry and 1st as someone who actually understands what a democracy is how it functions and even has ever read the constitution what we're seeing with joe biden is someone who they think that america 1st employ most issues to joe biden is local jail to a lot of people he someone she was part of the most successful democratic administration the past 6 years and he's also someone shuai knows how to unite united nations and right now in the midst of a global pandemic in the midst of an economic crisis he is someone who is also waded through an economic crisis before he is the orchestrator along with president obama of the relief packages after the crash of 2008 so i think that with him
11:34 am
people are. seeing someone who is in stark contrast to what president trump is doing not only in terms of unification but also someone who is not making flat out racist statements someone who is not objectifying women someone who is not out here being the antithesis to all things democracy and all things democratic and i think that that is something that speaks more to people than anything else is there referendum on donald trump absolutely but i think that just by saying that that is the only reason or you know part and parcel of why people are getting out to vote i think that that is a little bit too broad of a statement made several mistakes over and over and over again to be someone who believes wholeheartedly in what he is doing business in so many unborn heirs it is remarkable ok but let me let me stay with you here let me rephrase it here joe biden does this and is this likable as hillary clinton i think that's what it gets down to because trump hasn't been able to put a label on joe biden that sticks because like you said he has
11:35 am
a likability quotient that is very difficult to challenge and i think he's an empty suit and i don't see anything to be proud of when the in the obama administration but most importantly joe is ease not only likable joe react to the last of us. disagree with that and as well joe biden is not a likable candidate i mean when you talk about the contrast between president trump and him you know you know his growth limon you have to look at joe biden his grown up children and as something that plays a huge part in whether people especially in a black or latino community to vote for him especially you know with that crime bill still pending on the books i mean he's going to have to do some type of you mustn't have a restitution or in a set of eyes a mass incarceration for black america and he's going to have to explain how why he so easily had he thought he would children. ok i'm ok but then i think i've got standard you can accuse donald trump of the same thing and you know if and that can
11:36 am
be an element and maybe that is something that will make people think or they pull the lever but that has nothing to do really with policy and that's what i really want to stay with here this character defamation stuff i guess and doesn't move the needle i don't think with anyone here i mean sure let me go to you you know policy wise i mean if you look at trump in the poll he started he started collapsing when to connote coronavirus and his administration's response to it and i don't in my opinion and i'm a conservative joe don't misunderstand i'm a conservative ok but it seems to me then they're playing catch up now in trying to deal with this pandemic and of course it has been grossly politicized by all sides go ahead in washington. i think that you make a very good point up until corona virus hit and we saw all president trump go from having daily briefings to now pausing and having to over things to coming back and having more briefings disillusionment and excitement about
11:37 am
a drug that has been proven time and time again not to work in protecting people against coronavirus we're actually saving lives and hydroxy clark which is him making several statements about not wearing a mask and himself not modeling wearing a mask and just being someone to ignore it even his own task force when it came to the steps necessary to reopen schools when it came to the steps necessary to ensure that everyone had the p.p.d. that they needed were watching time and time again in a global crisis where the president needs to be someone who is a unifier but also someone who pays attention to and understands the science we're seeing this president not do that and utilize his isolation his policies not only to pull out a lot of the a lot of the unifying missions when it comes to health care we see what he how his reaction is with the world health organization we see him not listening to other nations state leaders who have come together on trying to fight coronavirus is a united front because of the populism that this president exemplifies because of
11:38 am
his isolationist policies you cannot see the forest for the trees and it is really causing more and more people to die we just saw a report what last week that showcased how initially he was absolutely fine with not following a lot of the guidelines or not even talking about them because he thought that the states that were going to be the most affected or states that were democrat democratically won when you assume that people can die in democratic led states and you can just blame governors that's a problem he's present the united states not just president of the red states ok we just heard something that i want to explore because something that i've been thinking about a lot i think that all of us would agree that trump rand is a populist in 2016 and he won ok he won the only needed in the toral votes to win the presidency ok. joe has governed as a populist because i don't think he has go ahead you know what i don't think there is any correct way to govern especially during a time like coronavirus aid can do
11:39 am
a better job than just agree with that that's when you see real leadership real leadership when you have a challenge for all the country for every citizen irrespective of what letter you put at the end of your last name or you have to be a leader of all. absolutely and i absolutely agree with that and like i said before there are things that he could have done better there are things that his ministration have done better especially one time like coronavirus but i will say this the media doesn't give him a fair shot i mean when he tries to shut down travel to foreign countries they call them a race they call them all types of names you know and you can make that assumption and he can blame governors from things that are happening in states but less you've got a for you as an example gavin newsom shut down our statements. gavin newsome did you know a $1000000000.00 do you get mass in china you know and so when you look at these type of bans when you consider misinformation specially when it comes to where in mass what type of mass we are if mass even a fact if you know you have to put that on the head of the leadership now president
11:40 am
trump has his ideals are how he feels things should go just like every other governor not in their day when it comes to matching states the overall you know leadership by the overall 'd authority comes from a governor so i have been this agree with mrs cross on that when the governors are there has a distaste president trying to make recommendations but he controls what happens federally each individual state. let's go back to. washington are you disappointed how this pandemic and the reaction to it has been so politicized because you know all lives are at stake right here and i really pains me when we talk about red states and blue states we're dealing with a pandemic because a pat the pen demi doesn't discriminate between. red and blue states here in is there any neutral ground on this series and there's nothing there's no neutral ground in american politics right now go ahead no absolutely and you're right the pandemic doesn't discriminate the policies happen to there are very few policies
11:41 am
across this country that are race neutral and we know that over time we've seen it extrapolated across the whole where there are blacks latinos who consistently are hit hardest when things like this pandemic occur or any type of economic upheaval but when it comes specifically to coronavirus the expectation was that from the top and the president is at the top that you would have a leader who was able to get a piece by piece plan and a strategy around how states would handle this be in constant contact with state leadership give a guy point because you are the leader of the greatest nation on earth you are that leadership model you're supposed to model yourself after what you would expect citizens to do and what we saw time and time again was trump mistake those opportunities we saw him stand in front of audiences and just not tell the truth we saw him ignore the science we saw him speak against things that his own pandemic task force what is giving other alternative information for that's
11:42 am
a problem because it will lacked a lot of trust it made people confused the reason why we have such a push against masked wearing masks right now is because the president for the longest did not wear them and he actually tweeted out aggression and support for those who were marching in stomping on state capitals with weapons so that they didn't have to wear them so when we see a president take those types of names in the wrong direction and we consistently see the coronavirus cases up to over and over and over again it begs the question are we a leaderless nation and you're right i think you said this a few moments ago moments of crisis or when you see true leaders rise what we've seen is this president all over and over again at a time where in all honesty the whole world is seeing a crisis in the united states is typically. where people look for motivation it's where people look for this guy post and right now that's just not what we're seeing we're seeing countries bar the united states in our state if you look around the world the united states is
11:43 am
a lack of is one of the worst performers in dealing with this and demming are ok my forbes and the whole the whole issue of opening up of schools it's really only in the u.s. everyone else is moving on you're right i'm going to jump in here we're going to go to a short break now but that's our break we'll continue our discussion on trump's reelection stay with our.
11:44 am
a short time ago an american airplane. hiroshima. kind. of go. how one. can it's. like most americans growing up after the war the bombs were a great thing they ended the war they say hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides and that's what my grandfather always said was his reason for the decision. truman was hoping for a dual strategy one was to drop the bombs and hope that japan would surrender and number 2 the americans were trying to send a message to the soviet union there was american poor planning in october $145.00
11:45 am
chosen 20 targets and russian. banks geysers financial survival they say money to develop. closer to these if this is a central plank support diatomic kind of call them right now say stop the. welcome to cross talk we're all things are considered computer labelle to remind you we're discussing trump's reelection campaign. ok let's go back to los angeles joe let's look at leave the economic reaction to
11:46 am
depend makes here. personally as a conservative i'm very disappointed that the white house hasn't taken the lead and dealing i mean 1st of all we had the 1st round of stimulus bailout and of course it went to some of the richest people in the world people that didn't even need the money ok and that goes across the board whatever your political affiliations it's the one percent they got relief ok the stock market so far is ok what i'm really upset is that you know mix mitch mcconnell he comes into washington for a couple weeks you know somebody might do something maybe we will maybe we won't and then we'll go on vacation here there are millions in millions of people facing a crisis right now i really cute one particularly when renting is that issue is coming up people who are not being able to pay their rent here why hasn't donald trump got into the oval office told the networks we have
11:47 am
a national emergency and this is what i the president of the united states wants done and i don't care what you think mcconnell you better get back in your seat and we get to figure this out because millions and this is only going to get worse this is no movie with courtly in america you're going to look if it's going to be a w in the long term ok where is the leadership right there because it seems to me that there is this is an ideal moment in this election campaign for trying to go left of by and say we're going to bail out the middle class and working class people he ran as a populist but he doesn't govern as one go ahead or i had to agree with miss krause in early year when she said that our black and brown communities are economically disadvantaged and this is you know true coronavirus them before coronavirus these are some of things that we have to go through on the law every day now when you x. outcome the president has in you know joe biden to say this is well. need to do i
11:48 am
have a lot of questions i would like to and i want to call another question i would like to ask because i can't even the aster we have to reach out so it's ministration we have actually not come you never visited any black and broke music show that you actually care about what it is and we go through on a regular basis i mean we are aware economically disadvantaged at every every turn when it comes to education when it comes to the lack of economic development when it comes to having quality jobs in our community and when it when it comes affordable housing you know her place you know men tell you no airness and most of those communities are run by democrats yes this is absolutely correct it isn't but this you know what i'm not going to say that democrats are the problem and i will say that people who are leadership positions in the democratic party are the problem i mean i look at areas like south central los angeles the 43rd in their shoes who've been governed by maxine waters for over 40 years i mean people have gotten comfortable without getting anything from their representatives which means they fell to hold them accountable which is why many more people stand up
11:49 am
especially young people standing up for roe for the office positions that where we don't have to actually ask questions we can be the answer to these questions ok but then. what do you think what can donald trump to attract the support. of people of color black black communities where you are here i mean it seems to me that in there he seem it seems to me that donald trump is kind of lost his mind this touch because he couldn't he could fight off you know this russia impeachment need crain all of that nonsense he was able to do it but when it came to this here he seems to have lost his touch it seems to me in the administration is listless and you know what really angers me going to for a conservative big conservative is that he continues to listen to these libertarians around him you know mix the regulate this get a tax cut our job is done let's go home that is a recipe for
11:50 am
a mcgovern run. style rout in november here we're done no you're not you're done for your friends and your donors but you're not done for the american people and and i and that's what and that's why i will so sorely criticizes the administration because i don't see any proactivity concierge treatment for the rich but no we can't spend the money don't you think you spend hundreds of billions of dollars on the military all the time but you can spend it on middle america then what's the point go ahead continue joe well this is this is about leadership that we see in the inner cities on a regular basis whether to present is a democrat or republican they never stepped foot into our cities there's been very little progress on legislation that's been passed to economically empower communities of black and latino so this is something that i see on a daily basis that i know maybe no the you but you know to have a republican in office i mean you know spread that leadership around to the urban
11:51 am
areas that i have no you know no no positive there is a way of people chipping the know if you have the president in some round some self with people concerned with the stock market that's what these worried about how start a market doing which is no litmus test to how 98 percent of the people not of states ok but is just absurd ok and i can't understand why he can't you know break out of that bubble ok and his friends are fine they're always no good to be fined ok. let's go back to washington only in your mind your supporter of joe how joe joe biden that is how do you think he would deal differently with this crisis go ahead michelle joe biden is a believer of science he is someone she will brand the policies he is someone who has she was doctor on call when it comes to understanding
11:52 am
a lot of different things particularly like she. was in the obama administration while they were fighting zico while they were fighting a lot of several other pandemics that didn't necessarily affect america as much but were a part of a global strategy for other nations particularly those in africa and central america and i think that the when you have someone who understands science and that's why you need presidents and leaders who aren't people who are anti-science or anti back when you have people who understand science they respond to pain gimmicks they respond to health care crises in a different issues as you claim marty been says it's ok to protests black lives matter but where's the science and math well we've also seen that those protesters in a bag in a largely tested negative for coke at 19 so we know they move differently out i mean we know that those individuals did not make over 1000 and then but with the exception because that's not scientific best political what it is though is when you are in a nation that consistently buries black bodies and you don't see any type of
11:53 am
restitution nor do you see any type of change do you not think and i know this because my grandparents a participant in the study there is always a holes i'm going to do lighting for your rights to having a certain level of power and ability to take advantage of your civil rights to have those things honored when you see black men and women die at the hands of police officers every day there's only so much energy or social media marriage will deny those people who are willing to take any of this treatment that's absolutely absolutely true that is absolutely not true most black people that are murdered in the united states are murdered by other plot people now most white people in the united states are murdered by other white people 85 percent interracial violence is not something that is just black but black it's also why don't why what is the we know that. you're making up what little exception go ahead jump in joe you make me of her you saw it in there we're going to use mrs krause analogy i mean like she said that the coronavirus move differently outside and i suggest that we open up
11:54 am
all the states but if we're going to use science to justify. proving that mass is actually kind of dangerous to people when they were in 24 seventh's which makes wearing masks you know appropriate as well but i mean we're going to we can go back to california or gavin newsom is about to release 18000 prisoners of mass effect of prisoners the mass in prison but i mean when it comes to issues like rise matter how it was there for training as well as black on black crime in america i think that we as leaders have right now we have to get the black eyes matter movement find out what is painting to the people figure out some type of resolution we know was painting to the people on black on black crime is a misnomer again 87 percent of crime a white community by white people because it's not there's black on black crime that's also white on white crime and i was born and raised in chicago chicago is my home so when you know chicago is there are all things going wrong i have knowledge because i will tell them what are their economic their economic issues their health
11:55 am
there's a health care crisis that existed before coping 1000 where over 80 percent of our mental health clinics were shut down just not a level one trauma center think that if you're. going to talk about todd go talk to somebody who is. not normal who just want to let you know we can talk now that these are not republican talking points down from south central l.a. they were just shooting down from the sounds that we were talking about chicago to talk about was another guy just got here is you know i'm born and raised is that you know you're not buying your hat you're going to go where you want to just problems or going south if you don't i'll be here and you're going to see that your school and. maybe. not will in new york in los angeles tell me how is this and the rest of the recipe is the exact same as many communities. how do i let up look i've got old police car you know what i'm saying i'm just not going to go well i'm just. curious were they all right i think that i didn't see that over time and those things are better have been studied are what over again. i
11:56 am
think really areas we're not going to see them or do overreach of there is no one will understand what you're saying all right let me ask my last year and it's something a question that we're all concerned. are people going to believe the outcome of the election in november is i think this is a very worrisome thing because hillary never came to terms with 2016 and we could have the same thing happen again let's go to washington 1st in a way. you know i think that if trump loses which i am pretty sure that he will he's not going to take that he's not going to take that result sitting down he's going to be upset he's going to talk about how vote by mail through an election and other things but i think that in general the population the american people they're going to get to the polls be aware that they vote by mail or they actually show up on election day or they early vote or however they decide to do it based on what the coronavirus levels are at the time and it's going to be not only a referendum on this administration but also
11:57 am
a sign that people want to see something new truck came in and he railed in on this economy that he called the trump economy that was supposed to save all things american and we've seen that economy tank precipitously so i think that people are going to get to the polls and showcase that not only person who is going to be railing against those election results is donald trump ok joe last 30 seconds you go ahead i think donald trump going to win has no more democrats going to be upset but the reality is he's been the best president that we've had a very long time and i don't enjoy is going to make it to the election not if he goes to jail for the hope the recent scandal. well that's ok i'm glad you mentioned that because i think i did see him in an embassy and d.c. and all the rest of them don't even know what that gives but a lot of people do know about joe's past and pretty please family's business dealings there but that's all the time we have here we have a fantastic discussion no one's here is on fire and we'll talk again very soon i want to think of us who are watching us here or you see him next time remember.
11:58 am
thinking of getting a new phone the ones we got in here should probably why he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired you don't need a crate with him he will. freaking out into the wall when it's pretty much anywhere near. reading dogs or caged in the into lane conditions on puppy i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in cages outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the courtier the rain the snow the funder nothing they have no protection. to get the you. know it's ok. across the u.s. cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows and pet stores most of the puppies are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sold in
11:59 am
stores even joined a group businesses are involved like the mom center there has been a shocking amount of organized opposition to efforts to increase the sanders of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding facilities most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with jobs don't buy dog. shows seemed wrong. all. just don't call. me the world is yet to shape out just a few cuts to the ticket and in gains from it it was betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground the.
12:00 pm
common. welcome to all of us from around the world live from central london this is all to u.k. . right . shocking footage has emerged of a phone call that being dragged away from his dying daughter's bedside by police as the family plans legal action they say that grace was a factor in the treatment. and i don't think yeah i mean. just to look at that he would not be in this situation this would not have happened . lebanon is in mourning off to some 100 people were killed and thousands injured in a massive explosion rocked the country's capital on tuesday. the
12:01 pm
health and social care committee proposes a new system for evaluating the government's performance is against major policy pledges targets. and also the former concept because he did it in duncan smith calls for the bricks and with the agreement be scrapped despite having voted for it last year. a grieving family is taking legal action after the father was dragged from his terminally ill daughter's bedside by police officers after the hospital decided to withdraw life support. rights. thanks thanks. thanks.
12:02 pm
this is the moment police drug talk to russia about see away from his daughter zainab side a shot it was dusty spoke to the family. it was incredibly harrowing speaking to both dr russia bassy and dr are there a bassy not only did they lose their daughter in such a tragic way but they also had all 4 dealings while in hospital as well as you saw in that footage the police seemingly appearing to be very heavy handed when trying to move both parents from across the room away from the bedside of their daughter bear in mind just after that just before that incident they were told that their daughter would be taken off life support meaning that she would die both parents being medical professionals themselves working for the n.h.s. a combination of over 30 years but they weren't treated like medical professionals nor were they even respected as parents they believe they were treated like criminals. who used to accept.
12:03 pm
that so do the girls you know. and. billy graham. she was. a big and she will she was. now the incident occurred just under a year ago but the family has only just launched a legal battle that is because it's taken them an awfully long time to obtain the police officers camera footage also to try and lift the restrictions when it comes to reporting and of course to try and emotionally become strong enough to relive and account all of this during the court proceedings especially as dr russia bassy says that his human rights were violated as well as his daughter's. thank you but no i was well it was a b. what good you know is missing in recognition is. rights of
12:04 pm
a dime child she had normal human needs rights you know it was the clothes are really to her her family around her to try and maintain the norm and see that she knew the last 3 years of being i'm very sick with her sleep at night every night this was got to get into consideration although she was a member but her last wishes last post nobody can or could remember him round. the court. when the dignity was saying upon us air with a ration at a disease called name and peck she was taken off have ventilator after the incident but passed away so tragically 4 weeks later on september the 16th last year now the ending of her short life in such a way like best is something have parents cannot accept nor understand. physically my husband was unable to be there and emotionally and mentally i'm unable you know
12:05 pm
that is just our wrong even the nice you know it's made an amputation the tape will she died from emergency hearing to a mule saying to you that it's steroids that the law. literally said it's do or die and leave the judge then i haven't had enough information to make a decision tomorrow and we have she said to him she's not going to make it till tomorrow and she tied her and. well during our conversation dr abbas explained to me that relations between his family and the hospital staff had broken down during the entirety of st ups treatment eventually breaking down entirely as his words on the day of the incident in particular when the place arrived at the hospital he question asked them why they with that and why they were trying to remove him did they have and arrest warrant but according to the november place they said it was rushed the battery himself that was aggressive and when questioned
12:06 pm
by the hospital as well which can't be named for legal reasons they say they were simply trying to protect the patients. when there is a risk to the safety of any of the patients in our care to relatives visitors or to our stuff or interference with the delivery of care and treatment it is necessary for us to seek help from the police this is never taken lightly it is essential we maintain a safe and secure environment particularly where we are caring for very sick and vulnerable patients the 58 year old was arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace he was subsequently also arrested on suspicion of the solti who lease officers due to the nature of the incident it was necessary to detain the man and when he complained of feeling unwell he was taken for treatment as soon as was possible we can confirm that we have not received a complaint in relation to this incident we are however in the process of reviewing a civil claim so be inappropriate to comment any further. well to add insult to injury dr fauci says that her family was not being treated in this way if not for
12:07 pm
the color of their skin and i only know really yes i mean. just in general or whatever we were not in the situation this were not so hot and uncommon imagine that they were. right you know i don't know a white medical consultant sitting by his little blond to it's not that. of course the family knows that nothing can bring say that back but their fight for justice can tell us it's a terrible situation which is really not entirely once in chunks i think you can never get over the tragedy of losing a child if you're not. you know our. backs are basically our you know somebody believed you out of my building daughter's well being and pops round my wrists were feeling like a lion and so has left our home i mean you are valid to step yet here you are our.
12:08 pm
condolences are being sent from all over the world to lebanon where a devastating explosion ripped through the capital on tuesday the nation is in mourning as the catastrophe has claimed the lives of at least a 100 people and left over 4000 injured according to the country's red cross.
12:09 pm
given the large number of injured hospitals and immense training facilities already dealing with the coronavirus crisis were quickly filled beyond capacity you should please have blood donations and for generators to keep the lights on here are some 1st hand accounts from those who experience the shock wave as of last. now you must die and all the sudden we felt a boom everything turned over our hands i was at home with my dad watching t.v. when the window fell over on me the wardrobe also follow us my daughter injured her and she needs a surgery now. was . the. cause of. me we were at home we heard the sound of the airplanes above our house well even that up of floor of the building where distro noise from airplanes and suddenly

this all falls on us something explodes and everything falls with it. i was moving and it felt like an earthquake relinked around and resold glass shattered everywhere we spoke to our correspondent in tel aviv bought a sliver but 1st we hear from journalist ult of ahmed in beirut who has been to the site of the blast for us. well right now we're standing in martyrs square where the house long been a venue for many of the poor form that would have been take place 11 on the past couple months especially after lebanon was gripped with the worst economic crisis it has witnessed in the past 3 decades at least we know that the lebanese lira has lost at least 80 percent of its worth in the last 2 months alone right now in the marchers as you can see behind me demonstrators and activists are collecting
12:11 pm
donations for people whose homes have been ravaged by the explosion which rocked the capital city of bayda late yesterday you can see water bottles on the ground food stuff even blankets and clothes and everything that the 300000 that now 300000 homeless lebanese are could be in need of also you have a lot of pro-reform demonstrators who are once again demanding that the government take action and they are calling even on politicians have long been. you know part of the sectarian based power sharing system that has led to the brink of economic collapse they are calling on them their resign and to leave they are accusing them of their negligence of being behind that explosion which rocked the capital city yesterday we know that the 2750 tons of. ammonium nitrate that went off as well as other explosive material and the poor
12:12 pm
baby with yesterday the main cause up 8 until this hour according to lebanese officials as negligence is that they were actually who are without any preventative or safety measures this is why you have over 100 people now. people killed this is why you have over 4000 lebanese injured and this is why you have over 100 others missing and the thousands are still i think about the injuries are still adding up rescue teams are still digging through there are all they're still trying to find survivors and injured and now here you find that the p. . have fun together despite all that 19 despite the warnings from the government that this is going to you know we need to ask about the pandemic they don't care they're here where they're sold their soul they're due to those whose homes have been ravaged they're here to show their solidarity with the victims a with the families of the victims with the families of those who were martyred as well and they are also sending a lot of their message to the lebanese government that is performance is not
12:13 pm
acceptable and they are calling all politicians who would just believe the country's prime minister has said that the cause of the explosion was 2700 tons of ammonium nitrate that was stored in a way house he said he would reveal facts soon about the way house but he wouldn't do so now because he did not want to preempt an official investigation that's under way now hospitals continue to report being in the state of chaos we know that they've been turning people away they've simply been unable to cope with the huge number of wounded and injured they are calling for blood donations and also for generators to keep the lights going all of this comes as the lebanese supreme defense council recommended to clearing beirut a disaster stricken city and also calling for 2 weeks of national emergency the military has now taken control of the security on the streets we're also hearing that the lebanese government has made available 100000000000 lebanese pounds in emergency funding to assist those who has been affected the prime minister says
12:14 pm
that they will find that those or those responsible and bring them to book. i will not rest until we find the person responsible for what happened so we can hold him to account and impose the most severe punishment it is unacceptable of as a shipment of 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate has been present for 6 years in a warehouse without any preventative measures. now the lebanese government has asked for assistance there's a host of countries who have responded saying that they sending both humanitarian and or medical aid amongst them are turkey the united states the united kingdom qatar iran and france we are hearing from the american president donald trump who says that this looks like a terrible attack which is a statement that contradicts contradicts the official words that we hear coming from lebanese officials let me begin by a sending america's deepest sympathies to the people of lebanon where reports indicate that many many people were killed and i met with some of our great
12:15 pm
generals and they just seem to feel that it was this was not a some kind of a manufacturing. explosion type of event this was a seems to be according to them they would know better than i would but they seem to think it was a attack it was a bomb of some kind years now and mungo's countries who have been offering assistance are israel this is despite the fact that the 2 countries are technically at war we have heard from the country's foreign minister benny gantz saying that 3rd party mediators have been approached and israel has offered humanitarian assistance no word as of yet what has been of response from lebanon all of this comes as an emergency security cabinet meeting is due to be held in the lebanese capital this morning it comes as both israel and hizbullah deny any kind of involvement there has been speculation as to what caused the blast at this stage the official word from lebanon is let's wait until the investigation is concluded.
12:16 pm
we also spoke to industrial expert roland to casual for the who is the managing director of all for technologies he gave some insight into the effects of ammonium nitrate the chemical is thought of cools the blast. the color of smoke that we see in the baltic it's a very distinctive. origin color and i just noticed. that i was like no axis is all you know and that implies it was an explosive mix where it's all strung out so we're making an explosive you mean the radiators to actually . get full decomposition and. that's why we don't like your god outside tells us that we didn't do that not to make so it wasn't an explosion when it went cold it was just going to write. these you know and you have to. be kind of cool that it's produced. it was just diesel engines and that's what this

june i'm a 1st select committee of m.p.'s says it was a critical error that almost no other country made and it found that mistakes lead to a fall worse experience of the disease for britain the government has defended its response. all of our decisions throughout the pandemic have been guided by the science with appropriate measures introduced at the right time to keep us all safe and with passenger numbers significantly reduced the scientific advice was clear that a quarantine measures for those entering the country from abroad would be most effective when the u.k. has a lower level of infection ver 4 as the virus was brought under control here border measures were introduced on june 8th to protect public health and help avoid a 2nd peak that would overwhelm the n.h.s. it comes as the health and social care committee has published a report on government accountability it proposes a pilot system which would evaluate performance on aspects of health policy designed to hold the government to pledges and targets the 1st such endeavor will

aim to evaluate the progress of maternity services or risk in disaster prevention expert david alexander thinks this approach does contain weaknesses. i'm all in favor of outing governments accountable but in fact governments have a tendency to exaggerate their commitments anyway and i rather doubt whether the rating system will care about trade but we do need more transparency do we not absolutely but this may not be the way to do it or perhaps could there be a chance of it being effective. i think there are several weaknesses in this approach wonderful who says that it's already being done by another government privy to reaches the committee on standards in public life and you can dance on the way up and look at their website to know you have a great part where professor mark. work university has a blog explains have it terry savage is very much parallel to what this committee

is there in here. another factor is that. it's very difficult to evaluate these things that are essentially taken the kind of evaluation used for schools and prompted down in the arena of evaluating government decisions or government decisions very different children running schools that summer i really wonder whether they're all managed to get tickets for their signature if a single channel 20 is likely to be enough to describe the success or failure of government decision making. britain's former work and pensions secretary in duncan smith has called for the scrapping of the e.u. withdrawal agreement claiming it denies britain true national independence you're paying commission has already rejected the cols saying the commitments made in the agreement reasonable and will stand in the twitter post in duncan smith said the e.u. wants money the brussels wish is to stop britain being a competitor is common spot confusion online as many were quick to point out that
12:23 pm
duncan smith actually voted for the withdrawal agreement when it went through parliament last year others were keen to highlight that he once claimed that 3 days was enough time to debate it but in october the form the pension secretary expressed his complete support for the document in parliament. i am absolutely without question of a doubt going to support this tonight in both votes both in the 2nd reading vote and i believe massively importantly in the programme motion and our course at moffett we didn't have program versions some people might recall round here that we had to have a 100 hours in committee before we could actually come down to get a limit sometimes i wonder if that wouldn't be a good thing but not tonight it has demanded not tonight and there's a reason because we've had more than 100 hours in committee over the last 3 and a half years the reality is if there is anything about this arrangement that we have not now debated thrashed to death i would love to know what it is in
12:24 pm
a minute in a minute but i promise to give the order i just want to make the point that for those who say that they don't have enough time in the next few days because there are so many things to debate because they forget and i see my right over friends sitting on the bench my left that was a white paper published last year that contain i think sadly most of the elements of the withdrawal agreement within it and that was debated and it is being debated in meaningful vote after a meaningful vote many of those things have not changed. brakes effects but other suggestions told me that one of the drawbacks of the ucas parliamentary system is that m.p.'s may not even read the legislation they vote on. you would've expected all m.p.'s to actually lou read the legislation we're voting on instead as what normally happens with so much legislation up parliamentary system is that the m.p.'s voted the way the party told them and most m.p.'s i suspect have not read the legislation so they could not tell you about how much money we're paying

brussels the next 40 years or what the situation is going to be a republic of ireland or on border so this is highlights one of the many problems with the whole political system what is your take on the situation in general will come of it 19 lead to know day a lot of so what's going to happen at the end of the year my suspicion is that it's going to lead to no deal now having said that boris johnson's given his juice is phenomenally good at pulling rats rabbits out of hats yet there in the end very short notice it may be that come november suddenly there's a magic date now what's going to be interesting is what is actually in it because it doesn't have to go back to parliament this bill is not going to be approved by poems or whatever barristers there greece he will then tell the public what his team of agree on behalf of the u.k. he would tell us it is the best possible get and we will not see the detail until after it comes into play so it may be that some sort of deal is calling to get the very minute g.p.u. what a very comprehensive deal it may well be that becomes
