at the front end we don't think it's necessary from the point of view of the use to do that to protect the integrity of the single market we think there are other ways of doing that we've got i think adequate time to do it let's get on with doing it have you correspondent max hoffman was in paris following today's events he sent us this assessment the fundamentals didn't change here in paris they are still the same boris johnson the u.k. prime minister wants to get rid of the backstop and everyone else in the european union including in my remarks on the french president want to preserve it to preserve the integrity of the single market but one thing seems to be different boris johnson has started saying that no matter what happens on the 31st of october the u.k. will not enforce border checks border controls on this border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is part of the european union that potentially
2:31 am
puts the pressure on the european union what will they do in case of a no deal brags that if the u.k. does not enforce this border will they do it and risk having more violence like in the past decades if they don't then they cannot preserve the integrity of the single market so this once again has become a high stakes poker game and the question is who if anyone will blink 1st all right let's get more analysis on the story now nico this is a senior lecturer and european union law the university of east anglia and ngo and i thank you for joining us and i want to get your take 1st of all these are 2 days of talks reports johnson in berlin and paris and we saw some friendly and positive tones on both days but at the end of the day nothing really has changed so what did you take away from what we've seen. i would agree with what your correspondent said i mean that go war so it is true that. there were some flit from here to serve the
2:32 am
atmosphere was about the glow frenziedly especially when it comes to that meeting with some solar america but actually both. both. men. don't have reinstated that position so they haven't moved from what fundamentally that is hungry mind on the one hand mr jones from said that he doesn't want to he wants to beat the box still but on the other hand he's friends and german counterparts have said that. you cannot just be the boss box on the less you bring some kind of for the at least the. something that is actually includes you can live with it all agreement that it was getting dark in november and yet now because we support johnson seeming to indicate that they could find a solution with some creativity and energy he said i like this can do attitude that he heard particularly in berlin so why are we all of a sudden seeing this movement behind the idea of an alternative solution does he
2:33 am
know something that we don't yet. i don't know whether he knows something that i don't know but the point is that for the last 2 and a half years when the negotiations have started we are all looking for a solution to the i support or the brown is that there are no gunderson that wall that they don't set a customs union and they are not little i think you lot already added that if they don't have that they have fictionalise board that they u.k. wants to be out of the customs union wants to be out of the single market so there will be some kind of sex when it comes to goods even if they get bored but mr johnson has been walking many times that a board that was commissioned by post but perspective. needs that when it comes to issues like. that it takes on. the northern ireland has to be one of the union actually pointing to a situation whereby ireland will actually divert from that it's
2:34 am
a very useful but the point is there that actually less somehow the northern ireland we see may you meet that is somehow. there is no solution to the border problem boris johnson said multiple times over the past 2 days that the u.k. under no circumstances would put checks or controls on the e.u. border and you've just been touching upon this so if there is a no deal brags that what does happen at the border. look i mean perhaps in the short term both sides will be like them to boot immediate on the board but in the long term and especially if the u.k. decides to divergence from the e.u. standards so if the u.k. as it warms makes a free trade agreement we think u.s. boards goods that do not correspond to they use time that they view by by definition in order to prove. they can give us
2:35 am
a new market and so on consumers we have to put some things now whether they will be on the board or they will be in the land so if i did land or somewhere else it's something to be discussed but it's possible to have a no border node 6 even the u.k. and they you want to not. to a certain extent right that is the legal situation of course nikos i want to ask you a lot was made particularly in the british media of anglo-american suppose that a 30 day timetable that forced johnson then said he welcomed this blistering schedule she commented on that today she walked that back a little i want to play you what she said. was the month it would be better to say can be done by october 31st so it's not about 30 days it just means it can be achieved in a short period of time after all the u.k. says it wants to leave the e.u. on october 31st also. because the reality is whatever
2:36 am
happens whether it's 30 days or not it has to happen fast so how quickly do they have to come to an agreement to avoid a no deal bret's it on october 31st. and the 1st one that one has to make is that there has been an argument between. the u.k. and the other 27 governments this agreement has not been ratified by the by the parliament show. if they want to reinvent the wheel and to lead i then let it drive the whole agreement i don't think that is enough buying that is for some consummate saying this but that is not sufficient time to actually say the whole agreement and there is no opportunity to my understanding of actually seeing the backstop so i think what the europeans buddies missed medical of the commission mr mike own i actually pointing is to saying this in the political declination finding ways to make sure that the backstop we need be that legally but it will be very very
2:37 am
difficult to get it unless the u.k. sam how accepts that less bowlers jumps on finds that as a landing zone for his political situation it's very difficult to see the gotten political constellation and agreement to be achieved all right nicholas qataris a senior lecturer in european union law at the university of east anglia thank you very much for joining us thank you. well the british prime minister struck an informal tone in his talks with chancellor merkel and president calling them both by their 1st names and indulging in a few jokes and not even the pomp and extravagance of a palace in paris could install a sense of decorum the press laptop but this moment when forced on to lean back and casually put his foot on one of the tables johnson was heard to say sorry but the french president didn't seem to mind too much it certainly produced the most memorable snapshot of the day.
2:38 am
in iran president hassan rouhani has been talking tough about the world's oil supplies he says that if the u.s. keeps up its pressure to stop iran from exporting its oil then international waters will no longer be secure in the past tehran has threatened to close the strategically important strait of hormuz much of the world's oil supply passes through this waterway last month iran seized a british flag tanker in the strait did that news so there's a top o. went to the island of hormuz in the strait and sent us this report. it's early morning in the sun beating down on the island of relentless there's no natural water and few other resources for that matter despite that the island has been highly valued for centuries as a strategic location portugal for instance constructed this fortress spec in 1507 to control my routine traffic in the persian gulf today the strait of hormuz is once again witness to conflict as the standoff over british rectangle ceased by
2:39 am
iranian authorities continues. a fisherman takes us out into the straight past the island of la rock the iranian military uses the island to monitor the area which includes the narrow passage all ships must pass through to reach the largest oil imports in the region. on oil tankers like this one a quarter of the global oil consumption passes through the strait of hormuz making it a very strategic location for international trade and an important leveraging point for iran there's a republic has repeatedly threatened to close the strait of hormuz for international ships as long as it's not allowed to export its own oil but so far it hasn't done so but the detainment of the one british tanker is already enough to slow down traffic and trade in this area. currently very few international tankers use iranian waters to navigate the strait many fear being swept up in the conflict between washington and tehran and the iranian military is not alone as it petrols
2:40 am
these waters the u.s. has also deployed ships into the persian gulf the u.s. wants to strengthen its presence here to guarantee the passage of international cargo ships which has angered the iranian government as well as the iranian people . i don't think they would welcome any sort of you know military presence from the region itself that's a part of iran's political culture not to you know. you know. actors in the region iran try to reach out to again to you know many countries in the region kuwait. and they are open of course to the u.a.e. and i think saudi arabia as well to discuss these kind of issues. there's been no movement on the issue so far iran's neighbors seem unwilling to offer support. few people on the island of moves seem interested in politics they're just hoping
2:41 am
there will be a swift end to the regional standoff. been a sentiment again if the tensions are resolved the entire economy improve and we're part of that. everyone is out of work here in hormuz i don't know what to do with my wife and kids we can't all live on fishing alone. things would improve for tourism more tourists would pay a visit to this island and that way it could develop. without stability turning homo's into a popular tourist destination remains a distant prospect. anyone who's a fan of the sound of music will remember julie andrews yodeling her heart out in a song the lonely go heard long before the advent of smartphones cow and goat herds
2:42 am
used yodeling in the alps as a way to call from one mountain to another but what began as a melodic language in switzerland and austria has involved into a sophisticated musical form in itself one that has staying power. ok it could be but be totally meaningless and lally will. probably be the we don't know when the 1st alpine dairy farmer let rip with the 1st . warning. perhaps the most plausible explanation courting the scattered herd of cows in for milking but with so much artistic creativity be invested into such a monday in toss. her.
2:43 am
it's rather hard to imagine now but there was a time when yodeling was considered revolutionary. you could even say there was a kind of republican yodel for example in switzerland one of the 1st democratic countries or roll of the was to free it from the cold in at the beginning of the 19th century. these countries were associated with freedom in the eyes of the rest of europe when. the euro songs that came down from the still europe were transformed into songs of freedom hide and interesting theory where the battles are just great p.r. measures for alpine folk music well christoph doctors research does suggest that there was a yodel at that time one which gripped the heart of europe and soon produced its

1st superstar. family from. in addition to the rhinos hundreds of alpine singers and even opera divas took yodeling to them live. and 2 overseas postures 0 balance also at the new york metropolitan opera their views were not great but that didn't stop your mania gripping the us to consider the whole world's met in the usa in the 19th century this would have been a mix of languages were spoken my idea is that yodelling was the lowest common denominator of the clouds to goodman's. no no no no no no no no. in the usa yodel mania lost its luster in the 1950 s. . but so decades ago yodeling was liberated from being solely the preserve of german folk music t.v.

shows indeed folk music bands and evelyn's garde vocalists have breathed new life. and why not what could be more beautiful than transforming those cries of distress into a positive heartfelt yellow that echoes around the world. all right that's it for the day but as always the conversation continues online they'll find us on twitter either athlete at the unions or at smugly ask don't forget to use our hash tag the day i'm so nice almost got to thank you for watching and for making us a part of your day. good
