paris. european council president donald tusk says anything is still possible with. leaders effectively took control of the time table during a summit on thursday they set two deadlines for britain to depart the block breck's it will happen on may the twenty second if the prime minister can convince parliament to approve her withdrawal deal which they've rejected twice if it's voted down again to reason they will be given until april the twelfth to either leave with no deal or possibly cancel breck's it altogether jonah hall has more from london. well prime minister theresa may has on friday evening written a letter to all m.p.'s in the house of commons a sort of rallying cry reminding them of the big decisions that they face in the week ahead head telling them indeed that she's open for talks with any of them should they want to talk to her and she's got
11:27 am
a lot of work to do to regain any sense of trust among m.p.'s a hold of course by the open assault she launched on wednesday night before the e.u. summit against parliament against m.p.'s accusing them of infighting and game playing of essentially conspiring to frustrate the will of the people saying that it's parliament's fault not hers that breaks it is in the mess that it's in but quite apart from that this is a set of menu options that she has delivered her vision of the choices that lie ahead either vote on her deal or deal going through possibly next week or the week after if not that well then they've got to find a consensus on a plan b. that would require agreeing to take part in european parliamentary elections by april the twelfth in order for the e.u. to deliver a longer extension if they can't do that well then they face no deal on april the twelfth and the final option all that would be left to this government in this
11:28 am
parliament to decide perhaps to cancel breaks it all together by revoking article fifty these are the choices as to reason may seize them she hopes of course that m.p.'s will rally behind her deal in the numbers it has to be said on not looking good for the prime minister. well back in twenty sixty in britain second largest city voted to leave the e.u. by a tiny margin and has been divided ever since there is one thing people in birmingham do agree on though their disappointment with how it's been handled the barker went to gauge opinions i'm going to come sometime thank you very much this is the sound of britain's political crisis a shot on the tube with david cameron lyrics that speak of a nation that olds with itself is by ninety's popstar patchy indian who now coaches new artists on how to confront politics and on when i say breakthrough what does it make you think it makes me think everything that is wrong. is not i mean put it
11:29 am
this way when i first had the votes did anyone know what they were voting about really is now we get into the nuts and bolts of it or maybe should've got to this point first before we had that vote if you like so i think a lot of it was the blind leading the blind is a view shared by many britons second city birmingham merrily voted to leave the e.u. more than two years on the city still divided over breaks it we spent all this time and achieved nothing it's just. that's what i think. we need a new prime minister just say that. it's all mom thinking it's for the best but. i'm a bit. impeach word it's been making them a chance to my customers a birmingham's oldest indian supermarket also reevaluating their choices more than twenty percent of the city has south asian ancestry owner gittin to dillon voted to
11:30 am
remain but the city's south asian community chose overwhelmingly to leave citing the arrival of cheap labor from the fringes of the e.u. as the main reason i think it was affectively to do with immigration i think they felt that immigration in these common areas was good. my dad came. there working twelve fifteen hours you know twenty four hours just to make ends meet here but now i think it's different i think people coming here. it seems like the perception i'm getting from people is that it's easier. to remain in plays outside a popular pakistani restaurant. turned up the heat a multicultural britain for many members of the south a community to see positive opportunity after spending when you try to place for themselves in this country. a chance to save

11:32 am
now the political pendulum has swung in the other direction. it's been more than five years since the presidents of south america got together to confront the present problems. but membership in a new form would be conditional those in the group must pledge to respect democratic institutions human rights and the separation of powers in israel is leaders. not invited. in the short term many see this forum as yet another mechanism to pressure and force him out. livia and surinam wouldn't sign the final declaration while brazil's president. says the new forum will prevent more of an israel is from emerging in the region. that is objectively here because this is what will happen. president peña went further saying days are
11:33 am
numbered. responded angrily calling an insolent servant of u.s. interests but even many critics are happy with this initiative which claims not to be ideological but which clearly represent the new conservative wave in regional politics in fact a group of former chilean foreign ministers and diplomats have sounded the alarm saying that paulson is in fact a threat to multilateralism and. the region. instead of building an organization. to the disposed of the new iraq. that he's taking hold of this region. but perhaps the biggest problem with the ambitious forum is that it could be as short lived as its predecessor if the political pendulum in the region shifts yet again.
