"It's this huge sweeping declaration of law enforcement in the UK, and it's really negative pisses a lot of people in the institution off the term institutional racism. Racism was first coined, and I use in nineteen, sixty seven in the book black power. The Politics Liberation and Sir William McPherson defines it as quote, the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their color, culture or ethnic origin it could be seen or detected in processes, attitudes and behaviour, which amount to discrimination through prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness and racist stereotyping, which disadvantage minority ethnic people so out that whole definition becomes like huge talking point. Yeah, he just puts it right on the paper their. Noble McPherson puts forward a total of seventy recommendations that are designed to show zero tolerance for racism and to improve practices within the met, and they include measures that would transform you know the whole attitude of police towards race relations and also improve accountability. And the response of the government is like Otit sorry about that and the Home Secretary Jack Straw. who had called for this inquiry? He accepted the charge of institutional racism and he's like Yeah, it's not just in the police. He says quote any long established white dominated organization is liable to have procedures, practices and a culture which tend to exclude non white people. Yeah, he also said that some truths were uncomfortable, but they had to be confronted. Within two years sixty seven, the reports recommendations led to specific changes in practice or in the law in UK sixty seven to seventy, the recruitment retention and promotion of black and Asian officers and the creation of the independent police complaints. Commission that has the power to appoint its own investigators is created, and as a result of this report, the entire force enacted huge change from the top down the. The report even made recommendations to change in the national curriculum, so they wanted to change the correct the curriculum of the UK that would prevent racial prejudices and foster culture of diversity, as well as saying that racist incidents in school should be reported to people's parents. and a record should be published by each school every year like we should. They should be held accountable for it. And it was noted that especially they needed to reestablish the trust between the minority ethnic communities and the police. Wow, so this is great, but still no one being held responsible for actually murdering Stephen and all five men. Still Walk Free and some of those crimes are racially motivated. Just showing the they're continuing. You know they're probably cocky about it now and flaunting they fucking thing they got away with. Yes got away with it four time. But in two thousand five as part of the recommendation of the McPherson report, here's okay ready for this. The Rule of double jeopardy is repealed. Get entirely. It's repealed in murder cases, and it's decided that a person acquitted of murder could be brought to trial again on the basis that fresh and viable new evidence comes to light, so the Lawrence's were like this is our fucking chance..

"He was clearly a very decent hard working man, so they have connections to Nelson Mandela at they have connections to Paul, Dogra Cheese, amazing, and so on February fourteenth nineteen, ninety-seven, the Daily Mail runs huge front page story it says in huge writing murderers. The Mail accuses these men of killing. If we are wrong, let them. THEM SUE US and they host every photo of the kids, and every not kids are men. Every photo of the killers and all of their names Jeez it. That's this incites crazy political debate, and whether it's okay to have done this and eventually the Prime Minister John Major comes forward and says the Daily Mail had broken no laws, and and I know and none of the five kit people, none of the five teens ever come forward to sue, and you know they probably Daily Mail probably wanted to. Because then they could depose them. Get their fucking high powered lawyers to crack them so I bet they were wanting at least one of them to sue and they didn't because they probably knew that it's so. It's like the one time tabloid. Does something decent? Ya Like I didn't know there were stories like this. And you know what it is. It's kind of it's kind of draws drives. You crazy because. It's because the editor had met a Neville right and probably have these preconceived notions of people of color and meets one and he's like. Oh, he was actually a hardworking man when it is wrong because of my ray singly every experience, every other parent to any other fucking child is probably a hardworking person to, and they don't get this opportunity, but it was amazing that Lawrence has got the opportunity and used it and used it yes. Yes in this one circumstance, also if it's gone, which is how it normally happens tabloids, which is, they don't have to write, we decide. We accused because that's what they do. When they just put up and blatant lies, and you know the first thing I think of his Madeleine McCann's parents where they tried and convicted those people totally in the press. I mean who are It's just it's such ugly business, but would it's tiny. Shining. Silver lining there and it's because. These men were guilty. It's not you know all right. So the next day the video evidence of the boys inside the flat is released, and so people just the anger fucking grows the racism and the knives, and the reenacting the attacks, and so on the thirty first of July in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty seven. More than four years after Stephen Lawrence was murdered home, Secretary Jack Straw announces yet another inquiry into a the judicial. Part of this case and it's led by retired. High Court Judge Sir William McPherson and this would go on to be known as the McPherson in Korea or the macphail McPherson report. Eventually it comes out in February ninety nine. It's a three hundred and fifty page report concludes that the investigation into the murder of Stephen Lawrence had been quote marred by a combination of professional competence, institutional racism and a failure of leadership and the officers in the Metropolitan Police specifically involved are named, and the entire force is criticized..

"Rebecca Long Bailey is the sixth candidate to stand the leader of the Labor Party. The show business secretaries at key ally Jeremy Corbyn and is seen as a front runner. Although behind current bookie's favourite Sakir storm others is on the list include Jess Phillips Clive. Lewis Emily thornberry and Lisa. Nandy our editorial column thinks it'll be a fascinating contest and wonders who has what it takes to get the job. Let Sep- some tests. First and foremost does this person see their overriding mission to be getting Labor into government that that might seem like an obvious central objective any opposition but it was not the primary goal of Jeremy Corbyn and his fellow travelers lend mcklusky and John McDonnell donal. The second test is this. Do they look like a prime minister. It's a blink test. Can you imagine this person. Stepping off the helicopter in Camp David David or turning up at the Elise Palace and representing the country. We can already apply the second test we can look at the candidates and tell which few look like. PM PM in waiting. And the many who don't and frankly never will whether the candidates can also passed. The first test is something. The coming weeks can illuminate tate. But Tony the coming years will confirm. Let's tune in and watch political. Correspondents fierce lays been watching the candidates Sofia Rebecca Long Bailey's finally entered the race. You took a while. But it's not a big surprise. It's really not not a big surprise But it's certainly exciting though it's hotting the race. She announced her candidacy by writing in a Socialist magazine Could Tribune in which she vowed to go to. War With the political establishment and essentially. This is seen as continuing Corbin's project saying she's no continuity candidate but that's very much how she's being seen. She was very much shorter nurtured in her career by shadow. Chancellor John McDonnell and he's seen as part of being a member of that same project she said who is likely to see me on the picket line as you are in the dispatch box is interesting. You said there that. She launched a campaign and Tribune the Socialist magazine. So although denying that she's a continuity candidate it seems that she's very much trying to appeal to his base and I wonder if part of doing that is what appears to be this veiled attack on the likely favourite for the job kill stormer. She's a phrase triangulation and said they took their eye off the ball essentially actually neglecting the voters over their brexit policy. And with a bit of a fudge she said you know. I'm not taking a covert EVATT attack on Mr Starr. But I think that's how it'd be interpreted by everybody listening to that list morning. She's clearly seeing him as the main challenge earn Aaron he he all the debates started pushing towards the second referendum and. I suspect this is where she says. She can differentiate Chazelle from from him so we now have. Several candidates declared kissed dom there Rebecca Lamberti obviously Jess Phillips announced at the weekend. It's looking like a really really interesting time for the Labor Party right now isn't it yeah. It's really exciting. It's really exciting race to watch actually We've got you know. Obviously obviously the the the dynamic of of what some might cool the hard left The the the came in with Kuban. And there's some quite strong words leads this morning from Labor former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw. He said the party needed a continuity candidate like a hole in the head and said AH continuity candidate would be a suicide note for the party very very strong words. He even went as far to say that the party could actually collapse if it went mm for continuity candidate and he was also damning about antisemitism crisis which I think virtually all of the candidates have spoken about often condemned and said things that we haven't done enough but that will certainly be one to watch whether they can really root out that problem whether people believe they can retail that problem and we've got comprehensive coverage of the leadership campaign including profiles of the candidates online at Standard Yokota. UK now want to Bafta as best film and best director nomination categories have in common. There are no women N. either of them. That's in the year. Greta gerwig little little woman became a box office smash. There's been a bit of a backlash on social media are film critic Charlotte O'Sullivan Reviewed Little Women. Although you only gave it four stars Charlotte should it be on that best film list absolutely. It's a wonderful film very inventive. It's directed with such style. I think at the beginning. Maybe you can't tell especially if you don't know the book she's Greta Gerwig has actually changed so much about the book and playing sort of long game so the longer it goes on and you realize that she sort of toying with us and with our expectations and also for the commenting on what women could show you know back in the day but also now our need for romance and I sort of say you could compare it to Once upon a time in Hollywood yes it really deserves to be in the list I but if it goes on the list what comes off. Well I sorta think some mundy's nineteen seventeen though lovely is sort of a solid choice rather than an inspired one and he did so well at the Golden Globes so he hardly is a weak link in the eyes of the world but for me. That's that's who could have been left out. Apart from new women appearing are on the best directors list and the being no female helmed films in the best foams. There's a real lack of diversity atoll in after's released. Nominations isn't the especially in the best actress. Category it's quite shocking. In a way that given the strength think of women of Color in the acting field like for example. Cynthia River just gave this wonderful performance in Harriet has just been completely unacknowledged. Also lupita younger in US and Aquafina in the farewell this isn't asking for special favours. There's lots of wonderful performances but for me if you had what sort of take one out. Maybe Jessie Buckley and wild rose in America. It just did so well at the box office and simply a British actress. And it's kind of incredible bowl that she thought of one overall Americans who are very circumspect about British actress being chosen but after say that this is an industry wide problem. They're effectively actively just reflecting an issue within the movie industry itself. They can only judge the films that they're given is that fair. I think they can get away with that. Because at the Golden Globes for example Aquafina one for the farewell. So I think are the bodies are starting I'm to Get with get with the Times faster his looking a little bit out of date and looking at the the rest of the list and then nominations in all those categories. Are there any films in there that you're particularly glad to see this wonderful documentary. For Sammer made by Word Alkatiri she basically just filmed her life. Life in Aleppo as the bombs are falling while her husband doctor is trying to save lives while the little door to his growing up it is so personal snow and it is so shocking. It's been nominated in the categories and I think it will come away with something. I suspect maybe in the best film not an English language or maybe bought best documentary so yes nice that that's getting recognition and another movie that I know that you like Shala this parasite which is being recognized to hasn't it. Yes that's almost my favourite film of all of all of them. It's by Bong Juno and it's a South Korean. I guess you could call it comedy. Also very a bloody and it's just had my heart beating all the way if palace won best picture and best director. This will probably be the best year if a diversity that we've had CETACEA South Korean director winning would sort of changes the whole image.

S. with nobody was perfect no delays perfect but that didn't damn they're guaranteed thirty rounds could not develop the techniques and the kit necessary to make a nuclear weapon for the next fifteen years service time limited for stop being quite clear but I was also yeah and there was not the sort of them is going to cost what happened at the end of the fifteen is what president trump is done and it looks as a the only reason he decided to destroy the deal what does best of this or that it was because it had been undertaken by president Obama not for any other reason is that there's not as I will have to explain there's a strategy that is discernible behind this he's torn up his side of the deal so that that and what is not done is first of all if if the Dave deal fully collapses then the guarantee that Iran could not developing nuclear weapons next fifteen years does and we already see that the hardliners in the system are desperately anxious to ramp up production of highly enriched uranium and a plutonium they are heavy water let let me stop you there because you would use that she's several really important points I want to go through them one by one I want to start with your analysis of what Donald Trump is playing that you say it was pure spite two two in a sense undo the work done by Barack Obama I would point to be coherent set of reasons that trump and his key advisors have to suggest that Iran is I'm on right reconstructed threat to US and other western powers interests around the world today it's not going to click on the constructed it is a threat the point about Iran is that it is a very divided government you have an elected government rows of the reformist under honey and these are if they don't have ultimate power but they do have a huge amount of insurance fund don't run for the real partnerships with no lights a lot from the navy and all of the security apparatus that tells me that I'm not able to him that that's the era that the American right wing and Netanyahu for example make saying this simply mouth pieces on the front they're not this is very very divided governmental system it's the supreme leader Khamenei and the revolutionary guards who control the cursive apparatus of the state what how many have to accept the nuclear deal under very great pressure from people like Romeo other sensible people in the system who wanted to see around have up in the coming future the irony about trump's position is that the one group in Iran who were cheering his position are indeed the hardliners in the revolutionary guards who always opposed the nuclear deal because they could see how restrictive it was now but if I may have there there is substance behind the American list of reasons why that deal to use trump's melodramatic phrase was the worst deal ever for example ballistic missile technology and development continues in Iran and that represents a fundamental danger view of the Americans for instance another instance Iran's funding all of the different groups in the region and beyond which are absolutely contrary to western interests has been ramped up one only has to look at his Paula one only has to look at the situation in Syria and the Hutus in Yemen all of these are instances where Iran's behavior according to Donald Trump and many others is simply unacceptable our our Arden now here's a spokesman for the Iranian regime far from is a highly critical in my book about about particularly the hardliners and their attitude to funding and supporting rejections terrorist groups around the Middle East and not least the attitudes towards the state of Israel however what trump did was to dispose one good thing which was a nuclear deal with at least and short some guarantee on the nuclear capabilities yes there are other things on the agenda the fact is the rain and the issues of missiles or if their activities elsewhere in the region well not part of the deal in my view if the nuclear deal had settled and it started to produce economic benefits for Iran which was beginning to do not withstanding efforts by the United States even before the latest at trump abandonment of the deal to undermine the economy in Iran than those other items could have been what point one with respect to that that that logical leap you've just made simply doesn't work yes there were economic benefits for Iran after the twenty fifteen signing off the J. C. P. LA but the result was that Iran was able to ramp up ending on its military ram puppet spending in Syria ramp up its spending on his boleh though who's with the very real consequences of the easing of sanctions which you and the people who supported the deal actively I I've been I think that that is what is being asserted by the Americans I think is very went went when the falls within what it's really true the what is entirely true is it wrong it's continued to support people it sees as its erstwhile allies it marks the share community elsewhere in the Middle East what I think is completely exaggerated is the extent to which Iran was able to use the normalization of relations up as a result of the J.
