5:14 pm
under protest affirmative cloud actually to central parts of india further north it is somewhat circular i say clear we do of course still have the smoke and fog problems up towards new delhi temperatures in new delhi getting up to around twenty four degrees celsius but a whole lot warmer than that across the river potential or over the next couple of days here in doha will have a top temperature of around twenty eight degrees celsius similar values to four a little bit of rain not too far away further north up towards keyway northern sections of the gulf could see wanted to showers along the spoils of friday and a chance of showers around the gulf of aden. news has never been more available it's a constant barrage of it every day but the message is simplistic you have the brain good logical rational people versus crazy monsters and misinformation is rife
5:15 pm

5:16 pm
airstrikes and syrian government attacks in the rebel held region of eastern ghouta near the capital damascus the region has been besieged by the government says twenty thirty causing food and medical shortages. now ireland is in the grip of a political crisis over a police whistleblower scandal is happening at a crucial time as its neighbor the u.k. negotiates breck's it which has huge implications for the irish republic this is where we are at the moment the opposition is demanding the resignation of deputy leader france's fitzgerald who is accused of failing to protect a police officer he was smitten victimized after revealing widespread corruption. prime minister leo varadkar who's standing by his embattled deputy now faces the prospect of a no confidence vote next week by the second largest party fianna follow and that could pull down his minority government and lead to snap elections just as the u.k.
5:17 pm
e.u. and then to discuss what will happen with british controlled northern ireland and britain leaves the e.u. well earlier we spoke to. bracken who is director of research at dublin city university school of law and government and he explained what effect the political standoff in ireland could have on bret's it. i think what it does is it creates further instability further uncertainty we don't have if we don't have to go to the doctor to compliment the situation we don't have to go on to belfast and of course we have a chaotic and divided government a lot and so from the u.s. perspective using with bribes and cheating with the irish issue which is that force a very important part of the people's issues it means. for us perspective it's very difficult to know who to negotiate and do the people they negotiate with have authority to make it remans which will probably stand for decades and this is why i think it's a critical time and it's
5:18 pm
a critical challenge to keep this government together because the e.u. or someone coming up a critical summit to decide whether to build stations through face want face to the uk the issue of the border which separates northern ireland. are those people stations and if there's no irish government in place then of course you get coverage of the irish government disappearing into these issues. now as dublin wrestles with uncertainty ever since government there is political stalemate also in northern ireland the part of the island that's under british control that power has been shared them belfast between pro british unionists and irish republicans who want thailand to be one nation but the belfast parliament has been frozen for almost a year by disagreements with the irish language now central to the debate we've barkha explained from belfast. in the heart of the room in a peculiar manner. you know more of the middle you know you are at
5:19 pm

5:20 pm
wasn't being treated as an equal party central to their demand is an irish language act many republicans see the language as an expression of their political identity they say it's a matter of civil rights. which is my heart and soul but it was a core of my skin and you can easily identify me as being of a different color and the d.p. worse than we can't give it equal rights this guy i think they should be clear. for us this is discrimination but there's no appetite for compromise among hard line unionists many see an irish language as a means of eroding and eventually ending british sovereignty the demands put for our political demands which i would say are vast open and the language of civil rights and i think if you needed to put forward is not a proposal for an irish language active in the language it is a political proposal to get a permanent and she damn say the disputes literally edged on the streets of belfast
5:21 pm
this graffiti calls for an irish language act the republican catholic west belfast the local councils have allowed residents to have their road signs in english and irish cross over to east belfast and unionists pro pritish areas exclusively english if the deadlock doesn't end by december the british government may choose to take back direct control of the region undoing years of political progress republicans say the irish language is an expression of identity for many unionists it's a weapon in a cultural war. leave barca al-jazeera belfast now the polls have closed in the polls northern mountain districts as voters take part in the first federal and state elections under a new constitution is happening in two phases the more populous south of the country will vote in ten days time the vote is being billed as a turning point for the poor himalayan nation which have been plagued by
