9:41 pm
backed separatists and control of agents international airport. a state of alert in gaza after 3 police officers were killed and so was heart attacks linked to eisel. and brazil agrees to accept international aid to fight the amazon forest fires but insists it will decide how to use the money. with the sports including an open secret al-jazeera uncovers doping amongst kenyan athletes training alongside some of the world's top runners. we begin with breaking news on bricks that have the u.k. prime minister bars johnson will suspend parliament until mid october when many of seeing this is a bid to ensure the u.k. leaves the european union by the top of the 31st deadline the opposition is calling
9:42 pm
the move a coup saying it would leave members of parliament little time to debate for exit pharmacy johnson insists that this is the right thing to do. this is a new government with a very exciting agenda to make our streets safe for weeks very important we bring violent crime down we need to invest in our fantastic n.h.s. we need to level up education funding across the country we need to invest in the infrastructure that's going to take this country forward for the decades and we need to deal with the cost of living moving to a high wage highly productivity economy which is i think what this country needs to be and to do that we need new legislation we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills and that's why we are going to have a queen's speech and we're going to do it on october the 14th and let's get more on this our correspondent joining us live from london opposition criticism coming facon far florance including from within his own party so how is promising johnson
9:43 pm
going to navigate this what's his plan. well look it all comes down to that the central conundrum of breck's it which is if you're a brick and you support it then you say well the people voted by a majority of the european union and the only job there then for the government is is to execute that plan parliament doesn't need spin volves we voted to support for and i'm not it's not a parliamentary decision all we want is for the government to see through and seen over the course of months or months or months is parliament not being able to make its mind up about what he wants to do and so if you take out all the stuff that boris johnson saying about new sets of policies and things like that plainly what he's trying to do is to move m.p.'s house of the way in order that he can do some form of brecht's it by the end of october which he has vowed to do. and just shovel
9:44 pm
him out of the way and so but if you if you're a parliamentarian you'll say well that's outrageous we want to say in what sorts of bricks that we think people voted for but in doing this job is effectively calling their bluff and saying do you dare now to try to unseat me in whatever form get rid of me get rid of my government some potentially overthrow the referendum results and so you know how these absolute standoff between him and states a plan of leaving and those and those m.p.'s who are now screaming constitutional outrage at all this and lawrence can bar. the m.p.'s out of the way what is a democracy for those who again. been washed away options here. well increasingly limited not simply because he's reduced the amount of pots on the parliament sitting and therefore reduce the amount of time that m.p.'s can do anything to try to overthrow his plan now that they're that the 2 things they've
9:45 pm
been thinking about are either passing a new law to delay brecht states potentially to call a general election as well but at least to go back to the your opinion this a place we have yet another delay to come up with some some some best and most suitable plan or if they can't do that which is looking increasingly unlikely because he's reduced the amount of time they've got to call a vote of no confidence in these governments which in turn would trigger a national election the problem even with that though is that downing street. office is saying well look if even if even if you voters down in a confidence motion then we're still going to bret's it and we'll have a general election in november of 2 bricks it happens you don't say con stop us so that just trying to shut off every single laugh in you that those program main m.p.'s have but what you heard over and over again m.p.'s on air is still there some of the sets so that's in that constituencies but it's going to twitter and loads and loads of them it's a constitutional outrage this is what the opposition leader jeremy coleman had to
9:46 pm
say about it it is a constitution that rage this is an attempt by a prime minister who is elected by a very small number of people in the country who's served to party membership to ride roughshod over power mint and prevent any legislation and debate that would stop this country leaving the e.u. without a deal and all the problems that it would cause he seems to want to run headlong into the arms of donald trump. more determination to see this before this is extraordinary he needs to be held to account by parliament not by shutting down parliament but by attending parliament announcing the questions. the other person has been dragged into this to much anxiety here is the queen who is supposed to be politically neutral and yet by being suspend parliament is having to make a choice between the supremacies of the executive government or parliament in in the way i was outlining earlier on and so people are saying this puts her in the
9:47 pm
most invidious of positions and to make things even worse not only is boris johnson written to say please can you suspend all of us jeremy colby in the labor leader has also written saying he was have a meeting with her as well to try and change your mind and this is what people mean when they say that the u.k. is now in this democratic process lawrence thank you very much for that finale with the latest live in london. let's take a closer look at how we got here boris johnson and to downing street on july the 24th and his 1st speech he told the u.k. that the country would leave the e.u. by the end of october with or without a deal just days after that he set out on a tour of the u.k. where he received a mixed reception in scotland wales and northern ireland some calling his breakfast approach dangerous and having a deeply disturbing lack of detail last week johnson held talks with german and french leaders he were new to schools to scrap the irish board a backstop plan but the answer was no and this week bars johnson joined other g 7
9:48 pm
leaders and from where he said bush and could easily coach with a no deal for exit let's stay with the story were joined by phil katz me he's a senior lecturer and politics at kiel university mr caton very good to have you with us on alan is there a story we've heard from the chief breck's that representative for the european parliament is he tweeted taking back control has never looked so as sinister taking back control of course the city has montreaux during the referendum i mean what do you make of this move by prime minister johnson. well it was telegraphed throughout the summer that a move like this was on the on the cards. dominic. new foreign secretary outlined him self as a whole. and when we heard this morning that the chance to extract it was bringing forward the date of the autumn budget then we had to know something was in the
