2:06 am
up with something their main line of attack continues to be to try to pass a law the would prevent or no deal breaks it at the end of october and asked for an extension from the european union but the problem with that is that if they want to pass a law they have sue amend a government bill going through parliament and if the government doesn't propose any bills go through parliament then there is nothing for them to amend and as it stands at the moment there isn't anything for them to amend in parliament next week and so how then can they pass a law if that doesn't work their other alternative is to force a vote of no confidence in the government next week which they could do but if they want to do that they have to propose an alternative government with norton it's of prime minister because if the government of the day were to lose a vote of confidence then the opposition would have 2 weeks to form a new government it's in his prime minister giuseppe conti will keep his job after a breakthrough in coalition talks it comes just over

no health care least a better food better diet and rich people are just more aware of their bodies than poor people or they care more about others and they can afford the health care exactly in streeterville residents have easy access to medical care a healthy foods and a safe place to exercise here you can essentially buy a longer life because here is segregation in poverty go hand in hand people. have been hit by. all the ills who the society. off the charts allowed to depress you have. running rampant on. some blame access to health care some blame a lack of healthy foods but researchers say the biggest cause of shorter life spans stress has what they call a weathering effect chronic disease sets in earlier people have a rough life. pushed around their whole life and are being bullied their whole life

government favors those are your headlines europe today the news continues here on al-jazeera after inside story and we will see you a little later. anger over the latest twist of brags that britain's prime minister suspends parliament as the deadline looms for the u.k. to leave the european union what's planned and there's a no deal bragg's it now inevitable this is inside story.
2:22 am
hello and welcome to the program. it's being described as a political coup british m.p.'s are crying foul after the prime minister suspended parliament just weeks before brags that it leaves little time to prevent the u.k. leaving the european union without a deal. and even members of boris johnson's own conservative party decry the decision as undemocratic opposition leader jeremy corbin accused johnson of trying to force a new deal brags that a legal challenge is under way and more than a 1000000 people have signed a petition to stop the suspension of the government denies he's trying to limit debate on brags that the prime minister is clear that he wants to use a new parliamentary session in order to ensure that the people's priorities are met
2:23 am
but it's also the case that parliamentarians will have plenty of time when we come back next week to debate bracks it will have plenty of time before the european council in october to debate british and they'll have plenty of time to vote on and to reflect their views on britain after that europe. in council which we hope to get a deal and i am going to spend the last 3 years talking about bricks it prime minister boris johnson's decision comes at a critical time for the u.k. the british parliament will be out of action for 5 weeks while it's normal for a new government to take time out for a short period this will be the longest suspension says 1945 m.p.'s will return on october 14th just days before the european union summit where johnson is hoping to secure a new bragg's a deal and a mere 2 weeks before the deadline for the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. on october 30th 1st.
2:24 am
let's bring in our guest joining us from london acer bennett the briggs's commissioning editor of the telegraph newspaper from brussels peter clottey had of the brussels office of open europe a think tank also from london jonathan lis deputy director of british influence welcome all to the program s. and normally when a nation faces an issue that could reshape is its future like briggs it that's where you normally need the parliament on board but it's not the case in the u.k. why's that. well simply because the previous prime minister try to put the deal to parliament and it got thrown back rejected 3 times and so now with the clock ticking the new prime minister boris johnson faces a crucial choice either he has to try and get a deal that is good enough to win a majority but it's meant to be a majority of his side and maybe enough of the opponents the trouble is the
2:25 am
opponents are not really coming through they want to stop him and say they show no interest in backing a deal so then the alternative is much more controversial of going for a no deal bracks s. and this is why then the remainer opponents are determined to do all they can stop him and so this week the move to effectively reboot parliament by bringing this current session to an end and having m.p.'s come back in the middle of october means that m.p.'s now who want to stop bars have a choice they have to either basically come up with the killer blow in the next fortnight or it may well be too late in mid october because no matter what they do then he could just sit in downing street and sit down the clock as no deal drugs that happens by default peter how is this seen of the e.u. is it a simple procedure or an extraordinary moment. this is still early days but there are initial reports indicating that the e.u. site is finally. getting the message that boris johnson is serious about
2:26 am
no deal and that he's actually very transparent in his strategy his fresh g. has been to prepare for no deal in order to increase the chances of a deal so the latest moves by the government in the u.k. mean that. strategies like an extension or or ending the requests to to leave the e.u. are less and less likely so for the e.u. side the choice is really going to be between no deal which is dreadful none of the sites are well prepared for that or to agree to renegotiate the compromise that syriza may already. concluded with the e.u.
2:27 am
so far the e.u. and particularly iowans have been saying the same thing since november really that they refused to continue negotiating but i suspect that many people are now starting to adopt how wice that is jonathan. morris johnson spin doctors were in the media saying basically this is a simple procedure that people have had enough of this. part of the session which has been described as the longest says the english civil war of 1642 and that it's about time to call for the pro gay ssion is that something that could build trust among the people in the u.k. . know that doesn't excuse what's happening and we are currently 9 weeks from a crash out breck's it which words deliver food and medicine sure it is by the
2:28 am
government's own admission and the government is responding by trying to shut down parliament for 5 weeks at that time so parliament is not able to put forward alternative proposals and crucially may not be able to stop no deal a tool which is in flagrant disregard of parliamentary sovereignty and also of the will of the british people because 2 thirds of parliament is opposed to no deal and 2 thirds the british people are opposed to no deal as well so there is no justification for any kind of prioritization of parliament which especially takes in a week longer than parliament was due to be in recess for conference season anyway the only conceivable explanation is that the gov is the government wants to seize power from the people's representatives and hand it to an unelected prime minister . so when you look at the time frame now with this suspension i think it gives the opposition no more than 5 days to be able to get their act together and see what
2:29 am
would be their next move whether to a no vote. no vote of confidence or call for early elections is this timeframe going to be enough for the opposition to tackle the issue. well let's remember they're back in march opponents of a no deal brock's that managed to fast track a bill to order the prime minister through the may to delay breck's it in basically a day it was sailing through the legislative stages so smoothly that reason may was basically already putting the request in to delay and extend article 50 before the bill it even become law granted we have a different prime minister now who is determined if necessary to ignore any such request if m.p.'s make it and those who are saying yes the potence of a no deal have several days less to play with them if they want to try and stop him
2:30 am
but let's keep this thing in proportion slightly because with purgation i think some people have been conditioned by the chatter your heard that effectively some backstairs wanted to suspend and shut down poland throughout just for the next few weeks nonstop so the pollen could not do anything at all up till october 31st and so therefore the revelation now that the recess the whole the break in parliamentary sitting will be a week longer than planned has meant people are behaving as if it had been announced the parliament will be shut down norms stop little talk of a 1st i make that distinction because we must remember that in the days they do have fewer they may be a number they can still do things but of course the key is numbers parliamentary rhetoric they have to have a majority in favor for it to work peter with the. is this going to be enough for once johnson to negotiate an agreement with the you. well that's definitely hope so in now i think that even if you consider this to be quite
2:31 am
desperate and quite risky which is an opinion that is fair enough to holt's i think you have to understand why the u.k. political class is ultimately resorting to this it is because the european union has basically told the united kingdom that they can leave with a deal in an orderly friendly manner under one condition and that condition is that they make a choice and the choice is between either accepting customs checks within the u.k. stare tory or alternatively to outsource their trade policy to brussels until further notice now i think friend and forward mid that this is quite a quite an ambitious demand to make from the u.k. and therefore nobody's of course a price that ultimately the u.k. parliament has not agreed to that's now there is
2:32 am
a way out the so-called backstop which is the commitment of the united kingdom to remain under the eaves customs regime to prevent customs differences between northern aren't and aren't. i think most british politicians agreed that this is fair enough and that this is acceptable for a certain period but not indefinitely not in the sense that the e.u. side would be able to unilaterally decide how long the u.k. remains under that backstop i do think that the obvious compromise still is a time limits to that backstop but that for that we need aren't to move and so far in art and people don't seem to realise that if they risk a no deal this will course but then 3 more economic damage to aren't done to the united kingdom and that it may also not only undermine the peace process because the e.u. would be insisting on
2:33 am
a hard border in our hands but it would also perhaps damage relations between ireland and its partners in the european union let's go to jennifer who seems to be willing to offer a different argument. well the 1st thing to say about ireland is that they have not asked to practice it and ireland has a very long history of being mistreated by britain in fact over 800 years commentating in the partition of islands and in the troubles which only ended 20 years ago so the memories that are hard border are extremely rule in ireland and so naturally they want to see everything they can to ensure that there is an open and invisible border between northern ireland in ireland in perpetuity so you can't simply have a time limited backstop there says if you haven't got your alternative arrangements in place by safe ideas we don't know what's going to happen we'll just have a hard border anyway that's not how an insurance policy works on the backs of is an
2:34 am
insurance policy so the problem with the british government is they are effectively privileging trade with canada australia new zealand over piece in its own territory and that is the outrage of bracks it and that's the outrage of the british government's approach to it the backs up has to be the most important thing because irish peace and prosperity is the most important parts and it's much more important than anything that we can do in brics that couldn't this suspension end up being a gun ball that would backfire and create many problems in the future for johnson for example both davidson who is tories. and everybody knows that had it not been for her. joe mcalinden would have been elected prime minister of england oh absolutely on both counts and that ruth davidson was the savior of the tories in 2017 and so going to reason they have any sort of presence and government is thanks to her granted well yes we must remember with the outgoing scottish conservative
2:35 am
leader that you know she is cited she would like to spend more time with her family her young you know blooming family and so all credit to her especially when you look at the alternatives that have if she stayed in place which is to preside and sell the bar us conservative case to scotland which is deeply anti no deal breaks it and voted by a slight majority for remain anyway so then she would be having to really sell sticky and difficult case and so instead you know she can take a break she can still be a member of the scottish parliament and then you know come back into frontline politics in many many months to come and of course so what is implications of this well sir it we must remember actually that she said that she feels boris johnson is still trying to get a deal and so this is true given that one of the things that the prime minister has said is that getting
2:36 am
a deal is his highest priority and also in this whole pro gay sions stuff for the queen's speech he hopes to have afterwards in october which will lay out his program once parliament resumes in that will be i would draw agreement bill so in other words a bill to implement a withdrawal agreement so clearly he hopes in the coming weeks to still have a withdrawal agreement of some sort to present grunted willow you know what sort of material will be in it in the final few weeks when we get nearer the middle of october because the theory is is that in the heat of the 11th hour with the pressure really on that's where you leaders will squeak out some concessions for him that they feel are possible or they're granted on the whole time that. backstop chatter i think one of the reasons that they then may not rush to do that is because all the threats it is saying are we won't be satisfied by time though a lot more than that so we'll see in the october what's the deal there is and maybe just putting it out there and in the fear the boris could genuinely go for
2:37 am
a no deal remainders labor m.p.'s could join he could get just of enough majority to push a deal through we'll see peter isn't this something that will put more strains on the e.u. because they see the potential for a constitutional crisis in the u.k. and this of the same time they don't want to really and up with a messy withdraw do you think that this is something that would put more pressure on the e.u. to offer some concessions to the johnson in the in the coming days. hi i'm not sure if it's going to happen in the in the coming days but i always thought that the e.u. is comma at least think about moving its regent position moving from its recent position when it became clear that boris is here to stay for the 444 day period until. until the 1st of november and there are some initial reports in german media that people are starting to
2:38 am
think in aren't we haven't really heard all that much now i think this is perfectly solvable of course even worse johnson admits that the alternative arrangements cannot be ready by the end of october he actually wrote in his voters who don't want to see that it may take longer than the end of the transition period so he thinks he's going to take at least 3 years the inside at least the austrian diploma dealing with bracks it has has mentioned that it could take 10 to 15 years so that's sort of is were both sides are i do think they could find each other somewhere in between you cite could could safeguard the united kingdom could really reassure them that this backstop would be time limited by putting a time limit on it but perhaps a bit longer now the u.k. would really hope for and and of course the u.k.
2:39 am
could. could also make some concessions for example granting some checks in the irish sea between northern ireland and. and and great britain particularly on food so basically submit norden are into the e.u.'s food regulations would help a lot it's simply because a lot of the of the challenges come from particularly milk farmers in northern ireland that would fall on the a different regulatory regime after off the record or there are very complicated regimes conceivable but we need goodwill jonathan if you see this. issue from a different perspective than you might think or you might say that the the guy jumps the johnson is smart in fact because he saw the tourism a try 3 times to negotiate a deal that was rejected by the parliament his trying
2:40 am
a different tactic which is basically the progression if worse comes to worse he will call for a new general elections polls suggest there is likely to further consolidate his gains well i think we have to ask what the point of brics it is is it deliver parliamentary sovereignty or is it state that parliamentary sovereignty away what purgation represents right now is an all out assault on our democratic institutions if we don't have parliamentary democracy we don't have any kind of democracy in this country it is not the will of parliament for parliament to be disbanded without its consent and so for johnson to try a different tactic which is to force through his will to blackmail the e.u. to blackmail m.p.'s by asking the queen politicizing the monarchy in one of the most controversial moments of the queen's reign to try and and clear a path for his bricks that then then we have to ask what really was the point that
2:41 am
any of this and what good could ever do that's that's the fundamental issue here he's had every right to fight this tooth and nail he said to what extent this move was dictated by an opportunistic approach by johnson to rally all the live cam behind him i think his own eyes are followers of the bracelet party gaining momentum and he said this could be my opportunity to tell the people you know what i am standing on your behalf and therefore any other upcoming election the voices of the votes will go for him. well the politics generally is driven by opportunism on both sides will stop so of course certainly boris johnson will have seen this in making his request he'll have made sure that it was very carefully worded because for example this is why the prime minister makes absolutely clear that it's nothing to do it it's just because he
2:42 am
wants to reboot government and all that because that would be the reason then the majesty the queen was able to approve the request because it just seems constitutionally illegitimate it's just part of a normal proceedings of parliament of course it just so happens that it benefits the prime minister puts the squeeze on his remaining critics now granted in the election as you're saying you're absolutely right you know that the polls do indicate that he would then squeeze through and this is on the strength of knowledge of fraud in his bracks party then potentially lending support having a sort of pact with his conservatives in which then breakfast is would know that there is only one mainstream policy those willing to deliver into approached rex's you know deal or no deal as the press it is of the knowledge of roger's team would love prefer and now people as johnson meanwhile and this be the risk for them if bar is for i very very bracks it's election is that there remains to be split because jeremy corbyn in that scenario then he would be eagerly taking up the

mantle of her main because the alternative is no deal under the tories. and meanwhile the democrats they will say all sorts of things about bracks their opposition and the greens so their vote would be split so it could well and play well for boris equally we've seen the best laid plans often go awry. peter the still remains adamant. withdrawal agreements now with this move by johnson what kind of impact do you think it would have on the status of the border insurance. harty end of the day. the the irish border will have to be figured out whether in the context of a deal or in the context of no deal now the. the u.k. side has made clear that they won't be imposing border checks on the border so the real question is what is the you going to do hard is that you going to plead
