but actually we have never trusted russia and the regime to have a sustainable ceasefire agreement. and right i mean conventional wisdom is that for there to be any agreement on the say sense of it live it's going to be between turkey on the one hand and russia on the other is that what we appear to be witnessing there are they agreeing. no they're not as the honest questions there because turkey says it has not got full influence on the situation with this grouping and they do have influence a lot of issues with the what they describe as the moderate opposition the moderate opposition to say privately that what can they do so this is an impossible position so really you have no substantive progress here yes you do have in essence of the syrian regime saying there's a ceasefire and russia are supporting that but the likelihood is that it will fail very quickly they've already been reports of 2 rocket attacks in the region by

8:22 pm
but he believes them as he convince the skeptics or is the kingdom fracturing even further this is inside story. hello everyone i'm come on santa maria welcome to inside story we're talking about the u.k. today or if we were to use its official name the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland but there are a lot of questions right now over that 1st would unite it and it's not just because of bragg's it which is now just 3 months away consider this when was the last time a british prime minister visited the home countries that is wales scotland the northern ireland and faces protest at every stop let's go through it he has boris johnson starting out in edinburgh he was met with geas and boos from protesters
8:23 pm
which actually forced him to leave via the back door of beauty house the official residence of scotland's 1st minister inside his hosts nicholas sturgeon expressed her discontent shall we say with johnson's brags that plans she spoke about a catastrophic almost inevitable path to a no deal break that remember most scottish people didn't want to leave the e.u. although many do support the idea of leaving the u.k. itself sturgeon says she wants to pass the framework bill for another referendum on scottish independence next year. then it's on to wales where johnson was seeking support for his briggs it plans from the country's agricultural sector the welsh farmers union has warned him leaving the e.u. without a deal would cause quote civil unrest in rural areas many british farmers rely heavily on trade with europe and a no deal scenario could be costly for their business whales are also important right now because of a byelection on thursday in the seat of break and radnor show which johnson's conservative party is trying to hold on to and let's make it 3 from 3 northern
8:24 pm
ireland his last stop boris johnson didn't receive the warmest welcome either not publicly booed this time but maybe that's because he was far away from the protesters there is broad consensus that leaving the e.u. without a deal could be dramatic because of the land border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland which will become a border into europe if no deal happens the shin phone parties of the government must call the referendum on irish unity immediately however let's not forget northern ireland's been without a sitting government since the year 2017. or at that's the run down i'm here is today's panel to look at the state of the u.k. at the moment we start in london where tholen wager who is a research associate with the u.k. in a changing europe initiative that is at king's college london and berlin jonathan les is deputy director of british influence approach european think tank and on skype from dinner in scotland alastair susi a writer on scottish political affairs gentlemen welcome to you all i might
8:25 pm
actually go back to my original question which i asked earlier in the introduction pace and that was when was the last time a u.k. prime minister got this sort of reception all over the u.k. i know that no leader is going to be universally liked but jonathan the let me start with you this was pretty embarrassing for a new prime minister. it's massively humiliating and it illustrates something very important about boris johnson which is that he's an extraordinarily divisive prime minister perhaps the most divisive prime minister in modern times just a week into his premiership where normally prime minister starts off with a bounce a popular goodwill and popularity but because boris johnson is so reviled for his long career in public this is a rather public service is long reputation for his honesty and his instrumental role in the brics a referendum which they'll see such
8:26 pm
a divisive issue that people just don't see that he is a man that really has anyone's interests at heart other than his own as been very clearly expressed in scotland and wales and in the northern ireland political parties as you can see and with a prime minister who is sort of blackmailing island if you like telling islands to abandon its basic economic and political interests to sort of like the desires of boris johnson is going to endear him even less. to that country and the rest of the rest of the u.k. so in your eyes and jonathan boris johnson is and use this description he has a has a product or symptom which one is that of the disunity in the u.k. . absolutely the problem the problem with boris johnson well one of the many problems with boris johnson is that he's actually not as popular as the conservative party thinks he is the reason that the conservatives elected boris
8:27 pm
johnson was that they thought that he was a winner so they overlooked his many kind of gaffes and bull and verbal sort of a journalistic errors and offensive remarks over the last few months alone the last few years and he suddenly became the number one candidate because they thought he could win but that was actually very outdated notion because the only time he's really won was in london and that was before bracks it london is london now thinks very little of boris johnson because of his role in in brics it and of course scotland as he said it was very opposed to brics that wales is now much more remain that it was in 2016 and as you say there is huge concern about a no deal breck's in there in the rural areas of wales because the farming industry and in northern ireland people are talking about the break up of the good friday agreement which would be a direct result of a no deal johnson has very little to show from self alastair so you see in the new let's bring you in seeing as jonathan has talked about some of the journalistic
8:28 pm
remarks and comments in the past of boris johnson i can't help but remember back and it's a while back now admittedly but 2005 in the spectator when he wrote about government by a scot is just not conceivable in the current constitutional context he was talking about gordon brown back then i mean just on that comment and you can see why the scottish perhaps don't like him but again that reception he got there and the fact that he had to leave by the back door and nicholas stoughton said that had never happened before. it's all it's all a bit extraordinary really. yeah no i mean it certainly is i mean you know he said it's some you know pretty unsavory things about scott's. where you know over the years as he said it's you know he said again what a scar it is inconceivable you also published you know when he was editor of the spectator he published a poem you know which called scottish people barren and said that they should be placed in ghettos that was when it was editor of the spectator sees that many you
8:29 pm
know he said many rules and you know he also has this sort of streak of sort of english nationalism he's very privileged he was privately educated and you know he's kind of embracing annoy your breck's a saying by the 31st of october that you know if that's the way we're going that's that we were going and ollie's phones are our you know aspects that starts you know do not embrace asshole and that is why. partially at least he got the reception in the member of no i mean if you think about edinburgh and umbrella of course the capital of scotland but it's also very pro union. and you know the 2 biggest cities in scotland the edinburgh and glasgow no that was there essentially got quite a crew union park to scotland glasgow is actually quite a. pro national i'm simple to yes to invent them back into those 14 so you
8:30 pm
know just wonder what would have happened if it had to done the same thing in glasgow and does all of this feel the independence debate again i've heard people describe the independence debate as being something that is sort of comes and goes i've heard it described perhaps more pejoratively as a national sport does it get real impetus now and not just because of doris jones and let's not lay it all at his door but just because of the state of affairs coming out of westminster. sure it does i think it does for several reasons it does it's got real traction back in 2040 scots loyal to it's a 55 percent 45 percent to remain in the u.k. so that was a clear result in favor of staying in the union 45 percent is pretty high it doesn't take very much to be about 45 percent to about 50 and the call since then has been 45 percent you know even more than us and they always hold their own the late forty's so the traction it has now if you think back to the end that was
8:31 pm
aspirational 45 percent but it was an aspirational world knows there's real traction behind the attraction with rex it starts to vote for break senate there's traction with boris johnson a lot of sports don't like boris johnson has traction with the new deal break set starts did in one breaks in the 1st place let alone a new deal bracks. and so all of these things now receiving end to the independence debate up here and considering back in 2014 be it the opinion polls that support for independence or in the late twenty's in the bettys and ended up 45 percent of your list tell you it's quite conceivable 40 but you know what percent reach 515253 of course it's not it's it's not a likelihood it's not you know you wouldn't say that it's probable but you would say there's a definite possible and i do let's bring you into the conversation from london we've talked a lot about boris johnson we've talked a lot about scotland there but you know the overarching thing at the moment is this
8:32 pm
idea that the u.k. were clear the unions fractured but that could fracture even further and for hecht alastair wrote a piece for al jazeera dot com called boris johnson be the you could he be the u.k.'s last prime minister are we overstating things to say that the u.k. is so fractured so let's talk about wales and northern ireland in england as well that it could. disband in one form or the other eventually or at some point. i do they not that's impossible at all from where we're standing johnson was elected on a mandate by conservative members and when conservative members were polled by a huge of polling company they said they would accept the breakup of the union and even the breakup of the conservative party to ensure that breaks it happens his mandate is to ensure whatever whatever costs the breaks it happens that said if he is the last prime minister of the union he will be fully aware that he'll get on a history as the leader of the of the u.k.
8:33 pm
that led to its lead to its desponding and that was the way very heavily and that's why you see him go to scotland wales and northern ireland this week it's very likely that we'll have another poll on on on on independence in scotland soon the conservative party of 13 m.p.'s in scotland and essentially with the election of boris johnson they ran off those $38.00 seats. and it's also possible actually and this was something that people didn't realize before the referendum that the breaking point that the thread that i'm on which all unravels could actually be ireland and the possibility of a board a poll in ireland even potentially before we have another 2nd referendum in scotland isn't it actually also really important we get a government in ireland northern ireland i should say as well. yeah i'm not i'm not become increasingly difficult now we have of course for dogs of president premiership he's gone to belfast this week before he met the cross community
8:34 pm
leaders in belfast he met with the d.p. he relies on for their support in the house of commons so he is not seen as an honest broker in that negotiation to restart power sharing in northern ireland so it's really difficult to say that happening before potentially ardbeg and the bring .
