‘Leave’ voters are willing to give up access to the EU market to stop immigration

Voters who cast their ballots to leave the European Union in the United Kingdom’s recent referendum on membership in the bloc said they would be willing to pay the economic price of severing access to the EU’s single market if that’s what it takes to stop more immigrants from coming to work in the UK.

This is after some prominent leaders of the Leave campaign have backtracked since winning the referendum to say that they may not, after all, be able to put immigration controls in place if they want to keep doing business with the EU.

VICE News sent Simon Ostrovsky to Clacton-on-Sea, a bastion for the pro-Leave United Kingdom Independence Party to find out why its residents were so ready to give up on the European project.

Millennials blame older generations for Brexit, but whose fault is it really?

Following a narrow victory by those voting for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, recriminations about who’s to blame are flying in the Remain camp.

Younger voters overwhelmingly voted to stay in the EU and have pointed the finger at their parents’ and grandparents’ generations who were the main force behind Leave. VICE News sent Simon Ostrovsky to a rally outside the Houses of Parliament in London to put depressed Remain voters on the couch.

Corruption in Ukraine: Drifting Offshore

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is facing a crisis of confidence after his name appeared in the Panama Papers leak and the country’s prime minister, with whom he clashed, stepped down.

Poroshenko rose to power on an anti-corruption platform following the 2014 Euromaidan revolution, but many of his supporters are disappointed in the slow pace of reforms and an apparent unwillingness to crack down on corrupt officials. A confectionery magnate before becoming a politician, Poroshenko promised to sell his candy business during his election campaign to avoid a conflict of interest. But he has yet to do so, and this failure became headline news when the Panama Papers indicated that he had set up an offshore holding company to shield his assets from taxation.

VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky went to Kiev to witness the embattled president push through a new fragile government, as allegations swirled around his offshore holdings.

Tearing Down Detroit: Demolishing Houses for the Economy

Detroit’s seen a staggering 140,000 foreclosures in the last decade. Tens of thousands of homes have been left abandoned, turning entire neighborhoods into an urban wasteland.

Waking Up In Another Country (Excerpt from ‘The Russians Are Coming: Georgia’s Creeping Occupation’)

In July 2015, Russian backed forces moved the boundary fence between Russian occupied South Ossetia and Georgia – making more of Georgian territory under Russian control.

Odessa’s Georgian Leader: The Governor

Ukraine’s government has found a novel way of trying to deal with corruption. They’ve hired a number of foreigners to head government agencies, ministries and even an entire region, in the hopes that their status as outsiders will make them less susceptible to the temptation to award contracts to their best friends, who presumably are not in Ukraine. In the port of Odessa, Mikheil Saakashvili has been appointed governor of the city and the surrounding region. Saakashvili was once the president of Georgia, but fled the country when a new government pressed charges of corruption against him. VICE News’ Simon Ostrovsky spent a day with with the president-turned-governor to find out how he was handling his new job.

The lives of former detainees after they are released from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility has, for the most part, been shrouded in secrecy.

But what does that actually mean?

Simon and Claire traveled to Kazakhstan to meet a former detainee, and see the challenges of integration and the mysterious circumstances surrounding former detainees’ basic rights and freedoms after being released from Guantanamo.

Schoolgirls for Sale in Japan

This Thursday at 12pm EDT, Simon Ostrovsky and Jake Adelstein will join ‘On The Line’ to discuss this story. Ask your questions on Twitter @VICENews with #OnTheLine: http://bit.ly/1Sgvvn2

Japan’s obsession with cutesy culture has taken a dark turn, with schoolgirls now offering themselves for “walking dates” with adult men. Last year the US State Department, in its annual report on human trafficking, flagged so-called joshi-kosei osanpo dates (that’s Japanese for “high school walking”) as fronts for commercial sex run by sophisticated criminal networks.

In our exclusive investigation, VICE News host Simon Ostrovsky will bring you to one of Tokyo’s busiest neighborhoods, where girls solicit clients in their school uniforms, to a concert performed by a band of schoolgirls attended by adult men, and into a café, where teenage girls are available to hire by the hour. But the true revelations come behind closed doors, when schoolgirls involved in the rent-a-date industry reveal how they’ve been coerced into prostitution.
