a backlash from her own party and calls to be replaced so can she survive we'll hear from london in a moment but first a look at how events unfolded yesterday. it was a tumultuous day for theresa may and more turmoil is likely to follow on thursday several cabinet ministers resigned only hours after the british prime minister announced that her cabinet had agreed to the terms of the deal. the first and biggest blow was dominic robb quitting after only four months as breaks it secretary. but we do need to check and he's not the only want to upset about the draft breaks a deal resistance is coming from all sides reducing the chances of the agreement being voted through parliament it's eighty four and it's going out by the out will vote against it is this mathematically impossible to get this deal through the house of politics and if that wasn't enough may might be facing

yet another challenge jacob reese mark a vocal hard line breaks a tear submitted a letter of no confidence against the prime minister but what we mean is a leader who will say to the european union it is impossible to divide the united kingdom it is impossible to agree to a situation where we have a perpetual customs union this is not right says this is a failure of government policy it needs to be rejected this is nothing to do with. me responded to the chaos with another press conference demonstrating determination and dismissing calls to step down if we do not move forward without agreement nobody can know for sure the consequences that will follow. it would be to take a path of deep and grave uncertainty when the british people just want us to get on with it this is a deal which does deliver that which is in the national interest and i'm i going to see this through yes for may the clock is ticking thank you next we shall have to

9:10 am
a while thanks no thanks and now just a few minutes ago while she is on a talk show on the london radio station she said to the question who is going to be your next great minister she said i'm going to do it myself only indeed. barbara with such a flurry of activity yesterday we sent our reporter out on to the streets to get some reactions from londoners last night let's take a look. chaos anger and confusion not just inside parliament but on the streets of london as well for the people here outside westminster the bracks a drama is anything but it done deal with mains cable. and until recently. it was a possibility it is now we. must agree now it's our time to go back to the country give them a choice do you want this deal that the government's negotiated all deal on say to
9:11 am
remain within the your opinion. is just ridiculous as a willing to kill. hang. the opinions and your opinion state definitely say the original vote was made without all the information that people needed really to make the decision people's vote no. across the city it's all eyes on the case politicians and their heated bricks acho down and it's not just remain us who don't like the deal facts of tears on happy to. the politicians find food. and. something in the middle or the end of the day the referendum was a binary choice was winston churchill said a majority of warmth is enough. i voted to leave i'm not going to lie but right now i would stay we need to fight the fact that. the difficult compromises haven't
9:12 am
united the two sides of the debate on the country great citizen remain assumed to be further apart than ever but on one thing they do agree this is not the deal they want for their country. seems like nobody's happy with us still what exactly do people there say is the problem with this agreement. all sides here see that this deal is just one big problem for the brics it tears it's not bricks city enough they say this is bricks it in name only we kept much too close to the european union we have to keep regulations we had the european court of justice will still be there we can leave when we choose of our own volition so it's a no from the hard line breaks it tears and they are still plotting in the back rooms of westminster here whether they will mount in an triangle vote of no confidence within the tory party against a reason may and the remainder is of course
9:13 am
a large numbers of the public at parts of the labor party the liberals and many others they say this is horrible this is much worse than the conditions we have in the european union in the european union anyway so what's the point of leaving if it is a botched and minor and negative deal like tourism a has put it on the table so no nobody is happy with it and there is a really grumpy mood all over the country this is it remains the most divisive issue ever in the last decades of british politics all right barbara vessel keeping us up to date there in london thank you so much here in germany the race is on to find a successor to chancellor angela merkel who is stepping down as leader of the conservative party next month the three main contenders for the job held a debate in the northern city of lubec last night the frontrunner is the woman known as many and i got to come colum bower. or even you know coincidence or not
9:14 am
the speaking order at the first party meeting in the northern german city of lib it was luck of the draw what happens to reflect the popularity of the three candidates amongst the germans as this most recent poll of info test shows an agreed to come combo as the public's favorite forty three percent of the germans want her to follow a. leader preposition elsewheres return to politics after a long break during which he made his fortune as a corporate lawyer is supported by thirty two percent while the thirty eight year old health minister span is considered a long shot with only ten percent approval all three candidates will be presenting their ideas for the future of the c.d.u. at eight regional party meetings all over germany like most other german parties at present the conservatives have a hard time conveying what their unique selling point actually is one consolation for them some other parties are doing even worse for instance the social democrats
9:15 am
sixty eight percent of the german say that they do not know what the social democrats stand for that compares to fifty percent who say the same of anglo-american c.d.u. a problem the green party doesn't have only twenty eight percent say they're not sure what the green party stands for. the greens did well in recent regional elections in the states up of area and has a establishing themselves as the new number two amongst german political parties give a general election where to take place this coming sunday the result could look like this to you and us be very interested party would garner twenty six percent of the vote the greens would come in second with twenty three percent the right wing populist a of deal turning to for germany reaches fourteen percent just as much as the once proud and strong social democrats for them fourteen percent of market new historic low bringing up the rear the left party with nine percent and the f.t.p. at eight percent of the vote. let's bring in our political correspondent hans
9:16 am
browne for more on the story hans those are pretty incredible results for the greens just three points behind the c.d.u. would be true gold for them to dream of a green german chancellor. all dream at the moment the greens have been increasing their support in a heady way in recent months but to imagine that they might overtake the conservative party of angular malco at the moment seems very improbable on the on the other hand that has been gaining averse both from the social democrats who are really very much in the background at the moment but they've also been gaining votes from the cause over to the so the greens are profiting from the the dissatisfaction with the very large parties. their rise i think is likely contra to continue but the prospect of overtaking the conservatives i think that's going a bit far right meanwhile the race is on for a natural successor and this new survey actually shows that i'm not quite come
9:17 am
column battle is the favorite at the moment who do you think is going to get this job but we have to see that in the surveys is a question to voters in general that favor and a great calm column by our a.k.k. as she is. the decision will be taken by members of the conservative party of the c.d.u. and in fact not all members but certain delegates from that party and within those delegates the balance might not be quite in favor of that come come ball on the other hand you have to see that her two opponents are both offering a conservative a much more conservative alternative to the policies of the christian democrats and if they continue to stay in the race but race the birth of them then it's likely that they will take votes away from each other and that again would favor on a great come come candelo a tongue twister even for german tongues i must say so at the moment she does seem to be the frontrunner but the race is far from all right our political

for with teresa mayes draft breaks a plan. but business owners see it differently. it's going to be straightforward and simple if the deal once the deal goes along is going to be some problems. those problems might look like this a long line of trucks good sitting still costing money in time a disaster for any firm but the current arrangement would give businesses time to adjust to the post breaks at landscape at least until the end of twenty twenty that's because the u.k. would remain in the e.u. customs union until a trade deal is in place and it would abide by e.u. regulations that means goods traveling across the border won't run up against tolls or inspections business will keep moving more business leaders are speaking out in favor of the draft including the c.e.o.'s of air bus and major trade groups their take questions remain but the draft appears better than a no deal parts of the draft are still difficult for some to swallow the city of
