5:02 pm
a list following the story in london the schultz is in brussels where the prime minister is attending talks with you have the european council don't toast welcome both teri schultz let's start with you welcome mrs may expect in brussels well she shouldn't expect arms to be open to wide we've just gotten word that she has just now walked into the council meeting for council building for her meeting with the european council president donald to ask and the line out of brussels today as in previous days has been reinforced there will be no new negotiations on the withdrawal deal that was reached nov twenty fifth that was stated again and again today in the european parliament in strasburg from john klobuchar to any peas there's really not a chance that she's going to get this deal reopened what mr younger says is that we can talk about the deal that we have we can clarify things but he said to a huge round of applause from any p's we will not reopen the withdrawal deal so
5:03 pm
she's going to get talks she will be listened to but she shouldn't get our hopes too high that she is going to get the legally binding guarantees that her representative here in brussels said she was seeking today to london the vice also while the cuts away one of my stewing about. the mice of course are running all over worse off and on the table said screeching while they do this obviously parliament has had an emergency debate today about the vote that never took place and the vote that nobody yet knows when it might take place because the trees amaze deputy david levithan stepped up and said oh yeah it's basically a good deal i can understand you folks bought he did not name it date so nobody is any the wiser and of course the opposition leader jeremy corbyn laid into treason may as being a useless leader somebody who made the shambles off break and so on and so for us
5:04 pm
fun and games as per usual in the house and trees i'm a might as well be in brussels where there's a bit more polite to for. terry show me the side no deal brett said just brussel see any wiggle room well the problem that treason may has right now is that her parliamentarians will not accept the deal she has made on the irish backstop which of course is is what will happen in the worst case scenario of a no deal i mean would manage the border between ireland and northern ireland and what her representative said is that she needs legally binding guarantees that don't exist in the current agreement and there really is no wiggle room on that if if you leader stick to their words what we also heard in the european parliament today though is that there are still parliamentarians who say look if they want to pick up on this european court of justice ruling yesterday that says the u.k. the u.k. could reverse its decision will still take them back with open arms but as for
5:05 pm
reopening this agreement again it's just not going to happen then well back in london barbara faisal the deadline for britain's parliament to vote on the bread is the twenty first of january is that the way mrs money could cobble together a majority in that time. it is really not obvious because what can she be bring back from brussels obviously nothing real if she brings just like a danda something that stuck onto the treaty and was a few friendly words no nobody wants the backstop to last for ever. friendly greetings from brussels that is not going to cut it because the deal p. the party of the northern irish unionists the party she needs for a majority in any case on top of our own bricks or to use an own hardliners among the tories has already said she needs to kick out the backstop otherwise we won't play with her so it's far gone so she she has no chance and what she's trying to do
5:06 pm
full i think is think about if you boil a frog she puts the parliamentarians in the pot over christmas and then the heat gets turned up very slowly because of course the fear for before it no deal breaks it rises and then she hopes they might in the end jump out whether that will happen nobody knows politics i'm cooking tips from barbara faisal in london tony schultz in brussels thank you. that are some of the other stories making news around the world high school students have been out on the streets of paris today protesting against the french government's education reforms the march follows three weeks of nationwide demonstrations against president elect policies last night the president promised an increase in the minimum wage and tax cuts for pensioners but students say their concerns of not being addressed. or thirty people in afghanistan being reported dead in three separate attacks targeting security services in the worst

5:12 pm
a senior correspondent for reuters news agency in bangkok why the government is making these changes now. well the government basically decided to lift the ban because we are months away literally from the upcoming election which has now been set on february twenty fourth after many many repeated delays by the military government so by lifting the ban it will allow people again to participate in political activities have political gatherings and allowed legal parties essentially campaign to reach out to the public and also to to get you know voters to get interested in political issues again ahead of this crew show transition to democratic rule. to the united states there were government employees of experience a nightmare many office workers know only too well talking about. brought on by the use of the reply all function yes we've all done it it started with an invitation

5:14 pm
all of these e-mails in fact they went out to nearly every state worker in utah see that imagine there was a little bit of frustration there so it does sound very annoying more than frustration actually. i would think so if you haven't actually been invited well everyone did get invited as it turns out although i guess twenty two thousand people didn't go this dinner luckily some top politicians in utah decided to make some fun out of this event and here is what they did really some big names joe doherty of the utah division of emergency management taking to twitter to say you know this may actually be a real emergency here he is jokingly referring to the fiasco as reply all gate twenty eighteen in fact you can see here he. ainge his twitter profile to say i am a reply all victim and survivor even the state's lieutenant governor here chime in and saying this is real and it's an emergency and i fear this will never and did

real menace and not a problem so forced to go from just the higher monkey chases put a stop to much for the round. it's a serious face now benefit to have some good news on the trade front no monkey business from a fill as far as china goes and the us and its trade will try to be backing down and use agency bloomberg is reporting the beijing is moving to cut import tariffs on american made cars it says the chinese have proposed reducing tires from forty to fifteen just said the concession would now go to china's capital for review if approved to reverse the tariffs that beijing hiked back in july and forced many qandil was to put prices up as a car makers b.m.w. ford test rose on the news. as. a financial correspondent in frankfurt conrad could this be a turning point in the trade war. yes it could potentially because it
5:21 pm
would show that the chinese are willing to do something substantial you know last week shortly after the g twenty summit the u.s. president tweeted something like this he tweeted that the chinese were willing to substantially reduce tariffs on imported cars from the united sates at the time we didn't get a confirmation by the chinese government which raised concerns and doubts on the trading floors what to make of those tweets of the quality of those messages from the u.s. president if the reports now are true if the government in beijing is really working on those tariffs then it would mean that really the two sides are not only talking with each other but that some substantial effects are coming out of those talks you keep using the word substantial but is it because i mean washington wants china to completely change the way it does business. oh well that's
5:22 pm
true of course the u.s. have said that they find a lot of things in the way china is doing business to complain about and it's obvious that this would only be the start of a very long process but if you talk to people here on the trading floors they respond that it's much first preferable to see the two sides talk and discuss matters like tariffs and intellectual property and stuff like that instead of just slapping. higher terrorists higher and higher terrorists on their goods and you know the concerns in america are going for further u.s. vice president pence recently talked about how china was a risk strategically to the u.s. and its allies and also here if you talk to business people and financial people they would tell you it's much better having them talk about terrorists that about billy terry options and problems the truth trump also tweeted that the talks were
5:23 pm
very productive but i mean everything is either fantastic or disastrous in his words. that's true of course everything that comes from the u.s. president has to be taken with a grain of salt also every rumor like the one today from bloomberg but i can tell you two things people in the markets quickly learning they are getting used to the change way of communications from the white house and also bloomberg is an agency with a reputation of being pretty well formed so if they come up with a room like this many people on the markets think it's worth listening thank you go read my system to you. beijing and washington maybe talk trade again but it's still unclear if the rest of way executive mung show was part of today's conversation both sides are watching the case closely. well ways c.f.o.
