percent and if china at any time retaliates the white house says an additional two hundred sixty seven billion dollars of chinese imports practically the remainder of all chinese products sold in the u.s. will also fall under the tariffs the increased tensions will likely scuttle the renewal of trade talks between beijing and washington. while about five thousand chinese products including household goods from vacuum cleaners to bikes will be targeted many u.s. businesses are expected to suffer as well just before the tears were announced in washington the chinese commerce secretary said that u.s. protectionism will only impact the two nations involved in this trade war but it could hurt the global economy as well and some analysts here feel that u.s. companies might face a chinese consumer backlash if the chinese people believe that they're being maligned. they will boycott and that's that's not something you know you're going to see you're already starting to see some anti american sentiments and want to buy that it's american right i mean this is the one thing donald trump thinks that the

9:17 am
. the judge requested that she be imprisoned awaiting trial along with scores of other prominent businessman and former government officials the senate would have to vote to lift her immunity from prosecution but that doesn't mean that finance is the kid inside of a prison any time soon behind me is the senate and it is preparing his party that holds the majority leader of the party has made it very clear that it will not even consider lifting for none of this the kitchener's immunity unless there is a firm sentence. but the judge believes that the evidence obtained in raids on three of the senator's luxury homes plus testimonies from businessmen photos wiretaps and videos provide ample proof. this could be likened to brazil's kawai you have public works politicians and big business this tells me it could have a strong political impact. sunday finances the q.

9:21 am
inside story. heel or no deep it's crunch time for breakfast at the u.k.'s departure from the european union warnings of dire economic consequences if no deal is reached prime minister to resign may arguing her exit plan is the best so is a deal possible this is inside story.
9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program i'm afraid of that hamid bracks it has been up to for front of british politics since the country voted in the referendum for a divorce from the e.u. in june twenty sixth it's crunch time for prime minister to resign may she's traveling to solve this week to try to reach a breakthrough with e.u. leaders but many have already pushed back her checkers plan russell's chief negotiator and the bad news saying it was spell the end of the e.u. project and just six months ahead of the deadline for a breakfast that they had of the international monetary fund christine like gab has given a stark warning leaving the you with no deal could be costly for the british economy let me be clear compared with today's smooths a single market all the likely briggs it scenarios will have costs for the you can an economy and to a lesser extent as well for the e.u. . the larger the impediments to trade in the new relationship the
9:23 am
costlier it will be the range of issues that remains to be address is daunting as is daunting the small time left to address them in july to resume a presented her planned named after the prime minister country retreat checkers and she said more than once it's the only deal she's willing to put forward but divorce can be messy and there are many sticking points including how much do you care is willing to pay the e.u. there are estimates the bill for divorce could be more than fifty billion dollars what happens to u.k. citizens living in the e.u. any u.s. citizens living in the u.k. the plan allows for freedom of trade but not for people and what happens to the northern ireland border this remains a major stumbling block the e.u. has called for a border in the irish sea do you cave for
9:24 am
a customs border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland it's important that we deliver for the people of northern ireland they don't want to hold border between northern ireland on and the only proposal that has been put forward that delivers on the not having a hard border and ensure that we don't carve up the united kingdom is the checkers plan. so let's bring in our guests joining us in warsaw environment and least deputy director and to think that british influence in oxford helen thomas c.e.o. and founder of microeconomic consultancy blong the money and in lancaster geryon jones and economist at lancaster university a warm welcome to all of you helen let me start with you basically think there is a mayor saying it's my way or the highway. that's right she has been
9:25 am
appreciated as yes my deal or no deal and i think that she's right to pitch it like that not least because we're running out of time and you know there is a deal getting to be on the table we have to see what parliament makes of that and then there's not much time left until the actual deadline next year of course and jonathan i mean in a certain way the e.u. is saying more or less the same thing even though not in those words that it's either they get what they want or there's no deal either that's right it's really a contest a lot of things. saying that the single market can't be divided freedoms. that has to be a possibility of a customs union in northern ireland. it can't be a customs union and it can't have free needs equal and they can't be rich see so if
9:26 am
you have two sides that both are the red lines a lot of them stereotypes are good and the police is the e.u.'s more powerful than the u.k. and the last two years you close the meeting notes the e.u. sides in the negotiations and so that looks to be the trend now well and you know we're six months away from the deadline and nothing has happened nothing's of stance it has happened so far do you think that there is a may will be able to push her shuckers plan even within her own constituency i mean she is facing a lot of opposition. it took the u.k. government a long time to settle on an approach to the present negotiations and when checkers came out a couple of months ago that was very late in the process what it has proposed in checkers is a very clunky system where countries collect border taxes on behalf of each other and where there is also a common rulebook across the u.k. and the european union for the case of gods specifically now whether that breaches
9:27 am
red lines on the use part in terms of splitting up the pillars of the single market remains to be seen the certainly something there in checkers that there is room for negotiation but we'll need to see how far each of the parties is willing to go well jonathan talking about the air from the mentors of the u.s. think the problem one of the main problems here is being that if you can have three movement of goods but you can't have free will which have people. absolutely the single market is as far as it used concerned becomes the path and the e.u. states cohesion on this very point so you michel barnier it so that eighty percent of the ritual agreement is wrapped up but it's a bit like saying that we share sort of ninety percent of our d.n.a. with the fruit like it's the remaining ten or twenty percent that's the clincher
9:28 am
and so if you if you came sits on its checkers plan that doesn't include. the e.u. cannot accept it and theresa may just box itself into a corner because she's insisted that i mean no premium to people but if she continues with that lie that you know czech is either ok well and. the i.m.f. has been quite consistent relieved from before do brigs a vote warning about the negative impact it's good to have you k. now christine legarde is doing even bleaker picture if there is no deal so what this terrorism may do at this point well it's all very well to talk about the economics of the argument but really it's all about the politics. that is what the deal is going to succeed or fail upon is whether you mention it earlier in a series of making to invent your own palm and of the merits of the check as
9:29 am
planned let alone in its negotiations with the e.u. and as far as christina god is concerned i notice in that comment you ran in the beginning of your report she did say that although it would be bad for the u.k. it would also be bad for the e.u. and again there is a politics versus economics that goes on as a calculation on the e.u. side as well so i think we can't purely look at this in just g.d.p. or unemployment terms although clearly that will be significant if we don't get a deal but but really if we're looking at what's going to happen and how it's going to pan out we really have to look at the politics of this and. in your opinion will it have a negative impact or is there difference between deal or no deal when it comes to the british economy. there's a huge difference between deal or no deal and if it's a deal it depends on what the nature of that deal will be because it's certainly an
9:30 am
improvement on no deal but it leaves services outside the single market of the european union and that will make it difficult for services to trade within the european union in the case of no deal though the big problem berth is that the e.u. will be obliged under w t o rules to impose tariffs on what it imports from the u.k. and that will make british producers very competitive as they try and export their products to the european union and that threatens employment it threatens jobs it threatens pay it threatens g.d.p. growth in the u.k. and so no deal would be a very bad solution indeed for the u.k. also it would be a bad solution for the european union. doesn't you think actually that no deal is not an option right. no you did it up to be impossible for a very very clear reasons. and it's of sadness it's
9:31 am
a disastrous outcome for both the u.k. and the e.u. but the u.k. has a lot more to lose in the e.u. because its economy is much more exposed it's so small it's less powerful and cause the u.k. depends on e.u. infrastructure to ensure the basic running of a country like aviation for example so the planes will be grounded according to the european aviation safety agency if we pull out with no deal so if negotiations collapse in december for example then the economy really start to collapse very soon afterwards and public support and if there was any would vanish very quickly and so theresa may would have to then go to brussels and ask through deal on what you consider to be very very poor terms so really breaks it is a process of elimination we know document note we know that there will be not there won't be you know deal scenario rather so that means they will have to be a deal and from then it's just a question of deciding which deal it will be the case so alan when if there is a deal one does get the impression there really specially when looking through
9:32 am
a bit the details of this checkers plan that there is i'm a basically wants an electorate to menu where she can pick and choose what what kind of relations or in which field she will continue having deals with the and in which which other fields there will be the bit of british britain will go on its own it's quite difficult isn't it to achieve that. oh she's obviously in a very difficult situation i mean this is the problem of having a minority government it's also the problem because although fifty two percent of the u.k. population they chose to leave. more than half of the parliamentarians in the u.k. parliament voted to remain in fact a significant number more than half a to remain so there is a there's a friction there that has always dogged these negotiations and unfortunately was made a lot worse by that election last year where she was of course gunning for
9:33 am
a big mandate and unfortunately the exact opposite of that. so in terms of picking and choosing i mean yes there's often a lot of criticism around what the u.k. is putting forward in terms of you know having cake and eating it but of course in any negotiation as any of us would have gone through you do have to put certain things for wood knowing you might get pulled back from what it is that you really want so i i think it's tough to criticize her check his plan necessarily on cherry picking because a line had to be drawn somewhere and she had to draw it based on the fact that her party is fundamentally split and of course the nation is fundamentally split and that in necessitated trying to draw these red lines and and sort of compromise into a least worst outcome and that means that you know we are
9:34 am
left in quite a tricky situation with the clock ticking there is basically a raft of paul options left and it is a question of just how bad is is the final outcome going to be. you know one wonders where the british people were to vote in twenty sixteen where they given where all the facts put forward is the bricks that they voted for back then the same as the one that is discussed today in brussels. no in twenty sixteen people were given the option to remain in the european union and it's pretty clear what that meant or to leave and it was very unclear what that meant and the spin the whole menu of choices from the day after the referendum it's been clear that we've had several choices to choose between when determining how we're going to leave the european union and what's becoming increasingly clear is that
9:35 am
people didn't know what they were voting for and some people now are regretting having voted the way they voted whichever way that was they wish they knew more at the time that is really what's driving the movement towards the people's vote on the terms of breaks it is gaining momentum but how do you have briggs it supporter . do you agree with what their own just said. i don't regret my personal vote and i should add of course that's just my personal opinion and the work we do at my consultancy strives to be as independent and neutral about this as possible. and i would point to the fact that some recent surveys have shown that there has been regrets on both sides and has been regrets from people who voted to remain and from those of age to leave it is a thorny issue the details are more complex than of course a simple remain leave question forced upon us that is the nature of referendums
9:36 am
that's what they do. and i would just say this about this concept about people knowing what they were voting for when we come to a general election they're all there is a platform perhaps on health service on should we have a national health set is what should it be and the public will vote in that election based on their views about that or on their values perhaps not even the specifics and they vote a mandate to the politicians who then go on to implement it as they see best and that is what members of parliament supposed to do so i do take a little bit of concern about this concept that we didn't know what we were voting for because that's not really how votes actually usually tend to work if you even look at the scotland independence referendum yes there was an awful lot more detail ahead of that referendum perhaps than this one but it was
9:37 am
a question of identity and beliefs and values and the detail and the policy well that's what the politicians are there to implement well. there are of them you seem not to agree with that has just been said but it does have a question for you this being part of the e.u. or not has been an issue within the conservative party one could argue for decades . before for now but it's quite. ironic that as it comes to the forefront the conservative party is having an internal debate about it and it's very difficult to understand at this stage if the pro europe or the anti or voices within that party are the stronger these days. our studio leader it's ironic that we are talking about what people very simple because the conservative party can't even agree to use up the referendum and the government is still divided
9:38 am
over it as well so in the conservative party i would say there is a broad consensus to leave but without any clear idea of how to do that and that's no you don't come for the people's vote because there's no majority and he seems in parliament the check is still there there's no majority for no deal i don't know if there's a majority for soft reps if the core software reps it is despised by leaders and remains because it gives you integration and also meets us a lot yes and vassal state unable to vote on the rules which will determine our economic future and so it could be the people's vote becomes to reach the major only way out because she might reason that if she can't get anything through parliament then putting it back to the people is the right was about it and i would also just say to helen helen makes the comparison with a general election in a general election you get a chance to review your decision after four or five years that wasn't the case this referendum so if people find that they want to see people that they're not getting with if voted for it's only right they should be able to think again and helen does
9:39 am
refute do you agree with the idea of a second referendum. no i don't i think even with the people's vote although i have sympathy with the analysis that jonathan needs to if the people say no then where we left we've got even less time and an even more divided to parliament and recriminations possibly a change of prime minister certainly leadership would be even more in question than it is now and it just seems to be to more confusion and i would say that it has been a number of polls which suggest that. in quite a british way that people just want them to get on with it and do something and i think after two and a half year is if we haven't got anywhere to go back to the people is going to be a difficult pill for the public to swallow a look in the current we're in a situation where christine lagarde is warning about dire economic consequences
9:40 am
for do you k. you is not very happy and degrees amazin a very difficult position but do you think that all of this has also to do with the fact that at the beginning to reason may was never brags that you or she voted against it so maybe it's very difficult for her to bring that five forward to push it ahead because there in the u.k. is busy been peddling peddling in the same position for the past two years. i don't think we can say that this difficulty that we're in a results from theresa may being a remain as she was always a lukewarm remain a best i think what has happened is that the whole process has hit against the buffers of reality and there are certain aspects of breaks that third of very difficult to deliver whoever tries to deliver them remember that the european research group last year pulled
9:41 am
a document that they were considering publishing making their own proposals about how to achieve brags that they don't know how to do it either so i don't think it matters who is in charge this is always going to be an extremely difficult process . what's very also difficult to understand or surprising i would say rather is that we are in a world where you have these huge blocks you know china's economy is growing russia is making it can all make deals everywhere do us is being more isolationist and then you have the e.u. and then you have the u.k. who wants to go on its own may be thinking that it will keep that special relation it's always had with washington that's not very clear de moment considering that sort of trumps isolationist or a protectionist policy so is it really was it the right time for
9:42 am
this referendum to happen and for braggs it to go ahead. what is the worst timing out there now when you look at what's happening well to see as you point out. if you see what's happening with trump we have the divided living isolated far west east as well so trump you saying that he is going to always put america first this about america needs and the u.k. and he will have no option but to pursue a trade deal with the u.s. to try and stem some damage from brics it but to trump in that will make almost any demands each chooses and britain will have to comply so that it doesn't give us any kind of power doesn't give us any time sovereignty even i'm so relaxed as you say this is a terrible time steve bracks will be always there terrible times the press anyway there is a particular terrible time story now because we are very short of allies at the moment and we've a short of options. so. it's not clear whether it be
9:43 am
a deal or no deal and even in this conversation we can't reach a consensus that if there is no idea at the end though they overnight and the u.k. would have lost many trade agreements around the world it would have lost also many access to many european institutions and from what i read any here is not really ready for that. well the u.k. government's trying to be ready you know they have published a huge slew of technical papers over what would happen in new detail and to reason they tried to respond to that course makani bank of england governor was in talking to the cabinet about the stress test scenario with a decline in house prices of one third in this kind of thing so you know preparations are all trying to be made i believe it's the same case as you know in the e.u. twenty seven as well. i think you know it's tricky of course it's

certainly not going to be easy to just crash out and beyond. there is the non-tariff barriers as well you know above and beyond purely the numbers of tariffs but again i do come back to the politics of this and grounding planes unilaterally doesn't help either side of the u.k. all the e.u. of i mean it would really depend on how the e.u. twenty seven want to push things and you know the e.u. twenty seven have their own debates that don't go as a. one minute because reaching the end of the program. there is a maze having to cells were given a few days she's going to have she's going to meet with e.u. leaders in a formal kind of summit how will she be able to convince them that it's her way or her deal or no deal. it will be quite difficult for her
9:45 am
to make sure that she doesn't drift too far in the direction of going for a customs union plus single market solution which would be unacceptable to a large part of her party so that's what she's going to need to ensure at the same time she will need to persuade the european partners that it is possible to implement certain aspects of the checkers plan that currently appear to be very clunky so ensuring that countries can collect taxes at the border for each other and ensuring that the proposals that she's come up with don't breach the principles of the single market that jonathan was talking about earlier but there's very little time for her to convince them of that the march deadline is fast approaching and time is running out but also time has run out on this show so thank you to all my guests jones analysts helen thomas and jones and thank you too for watching you

talks with the united states stormed rob a client has more from seoul the high point of today wednesday will be a joint press briefing by the two korean leaders we're not sure if it will be. a question and answer session but certainly they will be making statements and i think then we will find out just if there have been any agreements to come out of this there is certainly been enough talking so far there is more talks today the wall on one dialogue began on the first day and there's been lots of firsts lots of symbolism about this visit the first meeting for example took place in the workers' party of korea headquarters we're told it is the first time a south korean president has actually entered the building but of course as far as the talks are concerned it's debatable just what so far they have produced one official said it was more of a chat that it was about a very broad issues well at this point you would have to say
