a breakthrough and indeed she didn't get a breakthrough we've had a press conference in the last hour from. the european commission press president filling us in on what happened during the evening hours he told us that everyone listen to to reason is she explained the level of extreme opposition at home in parliament towards her brigs a deal painstakingly negotiated with the over the past eighteen months in particular opposition to that backstop insurance policy against a hard border on the island of ireland many british m.p.'s fear that it's a trap that britain will become caught in definitely following the rules but with no say in them and he said they listen to to reason made pleading for legal and political reassurances the sedgley reassurance is that britain needn't fear a trap but it does have some sort of power of the process that it can escape it if it wants to but that's a problem because this is meant to be an insurance policy and if it's time limited or one party or other can get out of it if they want to it's not much of an
insurance policy and so the e.u. has done little more than offer some very very clarifications language in a conclusion document after the meeting this evening they don't like it either they say they hope it doesn't come about if it does the backstop they'll do everything they can to reach an agreement and make it go away but beyond that the reason may has not achieved very much at all turn or is it likely that the e.u. would be likely to or even want to offer anything in the future to make sure that tourism a manages to get the votes she needs in westminster to get this across the line. oh i think they want to and they've made that pretty clear there's a realisation now particularly after surviving that confidence vote in london that the reason is the only person who can do that deliver any sort of a briggs a deal in the time available now and the e.u. wants a deal at all costs well not all costs clearly but they would like to help the problem is they can't deliver everything that she wants there is now talk of a summit in january this also of course talk of
a vote on that deal by january the twenty first that's a deadline in the u.k. that allows some time let's say for lawyers to get together and try and calm cox some sort of legal wording or codicil to the main agreement that might go some way towards satisfying some of the concerns in the u.k. it would come as the fore in the form of a sort of last minute concession at the eleventh hour it's again hard to imagine how they can offer m.p.'s in britain what they want to vote for this deal when it would mean simply changing the mechanism of the backstop and that is impossible the instead line is fast approaching is there any likelihood at all that that deadline might marry is there any room for negotiation about. an exit from the e.u. . our i mean look at you know one sweep past the point where reason may's deal is voted upon in parliament by the twenty first of january in or likelihood according to the numbers in parliament voted down
at that point all sorts of other possibilities come into play one of them of course is the dreadful to many prospect of a no deal briggs it's an area that's of particular concern here in the and it has already been suggested by the irish prime minister earlier live rocket at that point the united kingdom parliament should consider an extension of article fifty essentially buy more time to renegotiate to come up with some sort of solution that avoids a no deal breaks or other options on the table involve possibly a second referendum possibly a different kind of deal a norway plus deal there are all sorts of things being floated all sorts of things that the the focus now is on trying to get to resume a deal through parliament before january the twenty first china how there for us live from brussels thank you very much. a bill that will legalize abortions has passed its final hurdle in the irish parliament sixty six point four percent of people voted to overturn a ban on abortion in

a fire as a warehouse in the democratic republic of congo has destroyed thousands of voting machines the presidential election is set to take place in just over a week and the election commission says the vote will go ahead shot at ballots reports. this is what remains of a large election commission warehouse in kinshasa the capital of the democratic republic of congo inside with voting materials distant for polling seem to throughout the city ahead of presidential elections on december twenty third is a dirty trick because they have guards why didn't they call the fire brigade that night but it's all scheme to find ways of pushing back the elections. it started at about two o'clock in the morning local time more than nine thousand voting machines were destroyed the majority of election materials for other provinces had already been delivered not impatient so. we have the impression that this may be a criminal act as the fire was declared in two places inside the store in the same
moment we cannot say more for now but we would like to ensure our populations that the equipment from kinshasa that burned here will be replaced there is no worry about the coming elections even though the damage is serious. voting machines are a sensitive subject in the sea traditionally elections here are decided by pin and paper ballots they arrive for the first time in february when hundred thousand are being distributed across this vast nation the second largest in africa to be used by forty six million registered voters is the government marketed the benefits saying they would cut costs and speed up vote counting. the protests have been held across the country against their use critics have argued they need power to work and only nine percent of the country has electricity which is often unreliable others say they're illegal untested and easy to rig at rallies in september and october there was backlash. i know.

britain's prime minister to resume a says she's not expecting an immediate breakthrough as she attempts to renegotiate her breck's a deal she addressed your leaders in brussels on thursday as an e.u. summit just a day earlier she survived a no confidence vote triggered by her own m.p.'s who are unhappy with her withdrawal agreements the e.u. has already said the deal cannot be renegotiated only clarified a bill that will legalize abortions has passed its final hurdle in the irish parliament sixty six point four percent of people voted to overturn a ban on abortion in a referendum in may the bill allows for unrestricted access to abortion up to twelve weeks of pregnancy subject to some restrictions including a consultation with a medical professional it will now be given to the president to be signed into law . those are the headlines join me for more news here after inside story.
a confident reason may emerge is from ten downing street to surviving a critical low confidence vote now the u.k. prime minister is back in brussels can treat victory given a leverage with e.u. leaders this isn't a story. hello and welcome to the program. britain's embattled prime minister has survived
a no confidence vote by members of our own party it was a narrow victory but it allows tourism a to continue negotiating with the e.u. leaders for concessions on her briggs a deal but e.u. leaders have insisted the agreement is non-negotiable we'll get to our guests in a moment but first here's what the prime minister said as he arrived in brussels my focus now is on ensuring that i can get those assurances that we need to get this deal and if that i because i genuinely believe it's in the best interests of science you can ask the you to get the deal of the nine to a great deal of time recognise the strengths of concern in the house of commons and that's what i will be pushing to do that. i don't expect an immediate breakthrough but i do have a piece that we can start with this quickly as possible on the shore and since it's necessary. put to reason may she must hope that the words of president john called younker of the european commission but with intelligent use of clarification and interpretation there may be
a way ahead but central to this is how can the same form of words be acceptable in brussels and unexceptable in london and vice versa that is the question that dominates the proceedings here the question is is of such importance that it's hard to see what sort of resolution that can be given what the government's concerned certainly the german government but also the e.u. institutions have said that there will be no renegotiation. let's introduce the panel joining us on skype from london julian who is a french national living in the u.k. also a policy analyst for vocal europe an online news service in the english city of daraa tom brooks dean a professor of law and government at durham law school and also in london jonathan lis deputy director at british influence welcome to you all to reason may has survived just a belt survived
a vote of no confidence in her by her own party however has her briggs it deal survived let's start with you in london jonathan lest you think the brig's it deal is in any better position than it was twenty four hours ago. no it's even worse that i was possible first of all the the e.u. has already said on numerous occasions that they can't alter this northern island backstop and they can't fundamentally reopen the withdrawal agreement legally anyway and so all they can do is take it with some language but that's not good enough for m.p.'s it want to see the whole thing renegotiated so that reason may is going to be asking people to renegotiate it but she simply won't get what she wants and on the other to add to that she has now seen arrow thorazine vassie diminished in the vote yesterday so if she was able to do something before she's even less able to do it now because the e.u. won't take
a seriously and there are one hundred seventeen tory m.p.'s he will probably vote against the deal no matter what she brings but because they can't support her as leader let me bring in julia no is here from london also you wrote an article that said keep calm and carry on negotiating is that still the case right now. i don't think we consider still the case any longer because of the fact that the e.u. has itself said that it is no longer negotiating you have even though you have sebastian could saying that they're going to work together to prevent an earlier brags it's all that means is that the ear is going to try to help to reason and get this deal through. they are has already said that he's not going so france is not interesting negotiating this is not into negotiating this de most of the e.u. will be able to offer to reason that this point is a few clarification's a few notes and maybe even as was said yesterday the possibility of trip continuing the trade negotiations even if the backstop comes into effect tom brooks and
everybody seems to be agreed that the are going to renegotiate however to reason may is looking for some sort of clarity on backstop what that might mean is does she get some sort of deal that says yes it's temporary and this is the date will come to an end why can't she renegotiate what's the legal precedent behind all of this. well the legal precedent behind this is that the negotiations have come to an end and there was a final deal that she then took to her cabinet clearly there was something short of complete unity on that and in particular worry about parliament not agreeing to this prime minister then went to the country and has been losing popular support for her particular exit plan so she's kind of in this model of kind of signing up to something that she's not able to sell it would seem perhaps probably not to her cabinet but certainly not to parliament or the country with
with the negotiations over and it was noted at the b. start of this up a cd things that really they're supposed to be concluded about six months before march no one thought that it was going to go on a bit longer than that and it and it has but she's effectively run out of road which is why that the legal part has come to an end and she's really in a real pickle with this with this scenario. because in order to try to get that confidence vote from her own party she was making promises about getting changes to the legal agreement that she simply not going to be able to deliver and i think will frustrates members of her own party even more. and make up like tick people in the opposition parties jonathan less in london is true is a may simply rearranging deck chairs on a sinking titanic that is all she's doing right now. she's playing for time lerche she delayed the vote or not on tuesday because she wants to save her own stay in
which enraged party which is why they moved this very safe no confidence against her and so now she's going to the e.u. and asking for something which she knows she must know cannot be delivered and the reason she must know that is because they've been telling her for months and months so it seems extraordinary that she's setting herself up for failure the problem is that there is never going to be any way of squaring this impossible circle like so much else and brags that it is simply undeliverable the reason for us is that the k. parliaments are the reason that some conservatives are against the backstop is that it cannot be unilaterally terminated by the u.k. and there is no set endpoint but that is what makes it acceptable to the e.u. unprotect or the irish government so if you were to change that and make it acceptable then to the u.k. parliament it would necessarily become unacceptable the irish government and the e.u. and if objects which won't happen anyway because they're not relating the negotiation
but if he were to fudge it that it would satisfy no one because he would lose trust so really there is no middle ground you are satisfied he had parliament or you satisfy the e.u. and for that reason you simply won't get it still three some brooks in durham you've heard of joe english just had to say there's really nothing that can be done we've not been in this situation in the u.k. before so is there any kind of legal precedent is there any kind of room for maneuver that the prime minister might have or is it simply this is the deal and she has to sell it or not if a she doesn't sell it it's a hard drugs it. i think this point about the prime minister playing for time she's certainly been doing an awful lot of that remember that for most of the two years that she or her team have been negotiating this breaks a deal they've been keeping the details secret even from her own cabinet he didn't find out about the details until a checker's meeting at the prime minister's residence in september and that's when
we started seeing several i profile resignations including your presence a secretary and foreign secretary and then many others of course to follow and she's been trying to play this says it's either her back sits which is the only back sets or some kind of new deal scenario which the government is not plan for and would really genuinely cause cause some serious problems now the game changer in all this kind of what the legal way out potentially might be for her or or the legal way out for others in parliament is that on monday the european court of justice ruled the parliament can unilaterally without getting any new agreement from the you could could pause bracks it's a good pause it's leaving it could decide to not leave and revoke its its trigger that option is potentially attractive to those of course who would want to remain anyway that's not surprising but it could also be potentially of interest to those
who want to leave those who recognize that the that the deal has been a lot more complex and more arduous than a lot of people probably thought at the beginning on both sides and would be able be an opportunity to kind of get the right kind of bridge for those who want bracks it get the right kind of exits in in place this is still on the table of course other option is parliament could choose to hold to the referendum i'm somewhat surprised the prime minister has not gone for that in failing to get parliament on her side one way of getting them on her side in the next few weeks would be to call a referee. and i'm on her deal or to remain make it set between her trying to follow through on the referendum of her having the only option versus staying in the european union risky of course for her to do that but if she were to win that would give a i think a significant push to get her plan through parliament even against very reluctant m.p.'s she's chosen not to do that general election she could also call have
a snap election called but that would be very difficult because while she would be well it well the power is there this could be used the difficulty is it would take a few weeks to kick off it would be at least six week process and we would really get dangerously close to that march tape that any new government that came into place with would be led by her with be led by jeremy corbyn in labor or someone else they wouldn't have much room at all to get this deal agreed back they might miss the deadline to have that legal thing signed off to have the march. or if they wanted to do something else so general election is a very particularly difficult thing to see happening right now that a referendum is possible and and i'm still surprised he hasn't done that judy ho is is it time for the british government to hit the polls busson on briggs and call for a second reverend but a problem about question is that you firstly need to figure out that there's
actually a majority in parliament for a second front as it is it may be the case when i hear very much but we have to admit that the number of people speaking out publicly for secret from them in parliament is relatively low we'll see how to be assured that jeremy quo binns labor party is also at the top for the time being not supporting one of earthly what have been lots of things behind the scenes but it's. like many things through brains it's going to affect me come out of or like many things is going to come out of nowhere and jeremy corbin may be waiting for the last moments to call one to see if he can sort of play a game of chicken of the reason may maybe he's hoping to hold while to call for one after there's a vote of no confidence and if he can force a general election some to fit in the pause button i think that the british government is trying to avoid that at all costs simply because the fact it will be seen as a sort of weakness it would possibly embolden the far right in
a party such within the l.g. to move against in some way or embolden them to push for their version of regs it or a hard to break that will check as plus what have you because while it may seem like the conservative rebels are the feet of last night in this there was still a third of the conservative party that voted against the reason may and the uniform meaning behind seems have been there was an attack against reason his deal so regardless of what happens it's not necessarily sure that this is going to solve any of the issues that happens and on the off chance that there is a referendum and even within that child there's a chance that the referendum could just validates what happened in twenty sixteen and we still end up back in square one where we're going to have a severe issue of the two referendums bopha to leave nobody can decide on the deal the ease patients run out a lot about what happens now and again regardless of what government comes in that
issue is going to remain jonathan julian makes a very interesting point about jeremy colvin there saying that he's might be waiting for the very last chance is a game of chicken but surely we're at that stage now. well the jeremy lin and the labor party have a very clear policy on bricks it which is in some ways they have a very table a sea of rights it which is first of all they will try to get a general election and get elected so they can try and renegotiate price it themselves which of course the e.u. is very light is a deep let's go with it and if they can't get a general election which would involve no confidence in the government then they would keep all options on the table which most people would understand spe a second referendum now obviously i agree that cuban is trying to delay the moment where he gets that but when does not want to resume a to be in power so if the if the labor party thought that there was a chance of removing the government then they would take it and the important thing
is now hundred seventeen tory m.p.'s have signaled that their willingness to remove threes in may is it possible but there are a handful of them which would be enough to actually vote with the opposition and force the government out of office so that's the key but one one point that the other panelists have mentioned which i'm not sure is correct actually which is the idea of causing it the lure is that he can extend the article fifty process with the unanimous agreement of the e.u. or you can revoke it all together but the idea of pausing it's like cutting the top and then the restarting at a later date is not really in keeping with the judgment as far as i understand it of the european court of justice if you're vacate they'll have to be done by not parliament by certainly the will of parliament and that would have to be settled well it wouldn't be a kind of delaying tactic it would be we are going to remain in the e.u. so there might not be a panacea in mind not be an option for just do we have more time to think about
this tom burke you're shaking your head in disagreement with jonathan less just tell me why. yeah actually you had because parliament can revoke treating article fifty and stuff that makes it breaks a process but it can then choose to trigger it again in future there's nothing preventing problem for doing that legally so we have a legal mechanism immediately but we have a legal mechanism there but don't thing you clearly disagreeing with this you don't think it's a great option for the country before our questions when it will be cheap a page where you point to say we it would be bad faith us oh well let me come to julian then and. please make a comment make a comment i was going to comment on the fact that i think it was made clear within the judgement that if the u.k. chose to revoke article fifteen counsel to break the person's all together then that would need to be done in good faith and under the understanding that this was
going to be used to stop as jonathan said to stop the negotiations give them time to breathe and in effect in terms of how the e.u. would see this if the u.k. chose to revoke article fifty then it would be doing so under the guise of staying within the e.u. not just to have a quote react what happened in last year one last period of time since the fifty's and acted it would need to be sort of a definitive action jonathan people increasingly getting frustrated with the power games that are going on there's a lot of talk now that nobody in the u.k. is showing any kind of statesmanship that everybody is in it for themselves to try and either grab power or stay in power is that accurate do you think. i think there's a lot of truth in that we are seeing kind of a breakdown of britain's reputation the political office has been revealed not to be out in the national interests which has been a great international shock for
a country which brought its bolts is renowned for its pragmatism its good sense its reliability britain is sort of defying world opinion right now and the problem is that the fundamental problem is that bracks it in the form in which it was promised could never be delivered and to reason may in our cowardice and dishonesty and afraid to say never made that clear quite the reverse she went along with the pretense for two years that all of the promise is and the guarantees could be delivered with none of the resulting pain so she could have all of her redlines but with no economic harm with no let's go damage with no threats to the canonical political integrity of the united kingdom that wasn't possible so obviously the people that she made those promises to and now incredibly disappointed so there is no majority as other pundits have said for any particular deal so it seems the like yours option that they'll either be a general election if enough people fed up or there will be
a referendum and the referendum would most likely be as tom said with between may steel and remain and so if may still date when then parliament will presumably be compelled to enact that deal and then we would leave an orderly way tom let's just talk about the question that was asked in the first referendum it was a very simple question would you like to be part of the e.u. or not to do you think that people were informed enough about what that actually meant and do you think there's a legal challenge to be made to simply say that there wasn't enough information available at the time to make an informed decision. i think people did know enough and i don't think there's a basis for challenging that as it were i took part in a public consultation advise he looked royal commission on that question advising the change to remain or leave versus a yes or no format that was initially put forward by the then david cameron government on the basis of it was a more can
a neutral question that wasn't biased for one side or the other so that's why i think one thing that's different that that's clearly come out of this is to compare this referendum with another one the one for scotland's independence were these guys national party lost in that referendum the s. and p. put forward a white paper a long document about what exactly would mean on the british pound the place of the queen their immigration policy domestic policy borders security and so on people had a sense about what exactly they were going to get in so if they won or indeed if they lost people who knew how to kind of clear sense with their going forward now i think when it came to leaving the european union that meant lots of different things different people i think when trista may something up as bracks it means practice it that was actually probably pretty accurate because they had some people in the official leave campaign talking about the point space immigration system
that was then promptly ruled out curiously exists right now in law for non e.u. citizens we had others saying that there was going to be big reductions of all types of immigration we had. it seemed it met or who wouldn't you want different camps had different stories as to what exactly it meant and of course you could leave the european union but still be in the customs union and so still have the freedom of movement that it seemed many people wanted to stop so there's a lot of confusion that frankly was probably deliberate that in the boat leave side trying to find any set straw of. was to kind of make sure that people could grasp to take that side and take them and when it was all about winning and not so much about details i spoke to one national leader of the of the official camp and asked why didn't they have a blueprint like scotland's independence referendum did and i was told because they learned from that that would scotland win digimon details about exactly what this
meant they found they got into a lot of trouble because people had a lot of things they could on pig but they only kept it around a few kind of central themes about taking back control and it more money in people's pockets or in the n.h.s. that might be a better way of winning and that they would sort of the details later and i think we're all paying the price to that now judy let me just ask you as a frenchman living in london speaking to a lot of people across the european spectrum what's the view what would what does europe think is going on in britain right now. so i mean there's nothing positive it's actually quite sad when we think about you know britain has always been around for a level of the poena see if it's governance for us bureaucracy which competitive french market and so years. hasn't held above those organization there's also the sense of confusion about why they're doing this i mean for example i was at the wedding this summer with my family in our shell and what people asked me was i mean you you know
politics i mean we fought things are bad here in france like one of going on in england that they were last in lines and even with colleagues that i've spoken to across europe as far as hungary in brussels when i've been travelling around the fronts and even in the u.k. with the citizens that means for tennis working here people simply don't understand how does being such a breakdown and you know political disappear and diplomatic disappear in just the functionalities that's a require. for this process to be effective i mean even myself i was quite taken aback when i mean i knew the media had a bites an unhealthy affect on the political landscape however when you hear seeing titles like enemy of the people all these people all traits of all these kind of really sort of war like this criminal tory language used against people who simply
don't agree of you for me personally it was horrifying to see and for people abroad it's actually quite scary i mean that had friends of mine who said oh i don't want to go to a kenyan mall i know i've have former colleagues who have left the u.k. because they just didn't want to live in this country anymore and as a member of the free million i feel it's important for me to say as well that when it comes to citizens' rights you says it can do here also quite worried because we don't know what's going to happen out of all rights of being enshrined in law in a way that they can be modified later on down the line and so you know for everybody it means something different but for everybody is quite scary and worrying thank you very much to all of guests certainly a very difficult period coming out for britain the prime minister and the opposition perhaps to tom brooks julian hose and jonathan lest thank you of two for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting a web site out there at dot com and further discussion goes well facebook page

zero world investigates the life and death of miami. the two new zealand drone engineer. hello i'm. with the top stories on al-jazeera the u.s. senate has delivered a stinging message to donald trump for backing saudi arabia senate has passed a resolution to end military support for the saudi immorality coalition fighting the war in yemen and a separate vote they blame to the saudi crown prince for jamal khashoggi al jazeera as rosalind jordan has more. the results are fifty six days and forty one nays
the resolution is agreed to as amended a rebuke of u.s. president donald trump's policy to stand by saudi arabia no matter what the u.s. senate has passed a resolution symbolically ending all u.s. military support for saudi and emirates the forces fighting in the yemeni civil war the war in yemen is on authorize there has never been a vote in congress who allow our men and women to participate in that war and therefore that war is on constitutional i have also been deeply concerned that the president continues to ignore human rights violations the suppression of dissent and the deaths of thousands of civilians in yemen in order to maintain good relations with the saudis. legislators have been worried for some time about the civilian suffering in yemen but the saudi government's murder of journalist jamal khashoggi in october set off a wave of anger bipartisan anger not seen on capitol hill in some time legislators
have demanded and received closed door briefings from the cia director and the secretaries of state and defense i can't mention some of the things that they have told us yesterday and today but i do think that this horrific killing of this journalist is not something that we can just simply look the other way and say hey what are you going to do. you know this is war and these things happen these things shouldn't happen and. we have to be very pointed about it around prince ahmed and they've also passed a second resolution that says quote the senate believes crown prince mohammed bin solomon is responsible for the murder of jamal khashoggi it calls on saudi arabia both to quote ensure accountability for his murder and to. release political prisoners and for good measure it also condemns giving of advanced lethal weapons
to the rebels senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says this resolution strikes the right balance between accountability and maintaining a long and says unlike other pending measures their resolution is neither sufficiently prudent nor sufficiently person. for the job but. yeah if they said it was thought you were a bit responsible we want to see a more stable yemen for the sake of the yemeni people we also want to preserve this seventy your partnership even though this session of congress is almost over the legislators interest in saudi arabia's behavior is not legislators from both parties and in both the senate and the house say that come january they will be convening hearings and they will be conducting investigations into how the u.s. and saudi arabia's foreign policy goals intersect they also want to make certain that washington isn't underselling itself either morally or legally rosalyn jordan
