1:47 am
positive brexit but why should people still consider that you are still the person to preside over this? well, what we agreed tonight is that we can leave the european union before the 30th ofjune. what we need to ensure is that we have an agreement in permanent, that we can get through and get that necessary legislation ratified to enable us to leave. i want us to leave the eu with a deal so it's an orderly exit as soon as possible. this decision enables us to do that. beth. reporter macro —— report macro enables us to do that. beth. reporter macro -- report macro prime minister, 177 of your party refuse to listen to your plan forjune the 30th let alone the 31st. how can you instill good conscious remained leader of the conservative party after creating this extension tonight? what i am working to do is tonight? what i am working to do is to ensure that as a government, a
1:48 am
conservative party in government, we deliver on the result of the referendum, deliver brexit for the people of the united kingdom. what this extension enables us to do is to go through the process that we have set up, to enable parliament to come to a majority opinion on the way forward so that we can get that deal ratified and delete the european union and i want to do that as soon as possible. if we are able to do that before the 22nd of may, then we will not have to hold those parliament reelections. anything else, jason? report—macro: —— reporter macro... -- reporter: premise, you promised that we could leave in april. they said we might be for halloween. —— prime minister, you promised for sub don't feel you of the country and apology? over the la st of the country and apology? over the last three months, i have voted three times to leave the european union. if sufficient rivers of parliament had voted with me in january, we would already be out of
1:49 am
the european union. we have not been able to get that majority in parliament. as you know, i have now been reaching out to find a way in which we can get an agreement that will command a majority across the house of commons to ensure that we can put the legislation through, we can put the legislation through, we can ratify the withdrawal agreement, have the withdrawal agreement bill through the house of commons and the house of lords so that we can ratified this agreement and be the european union. i want to do that as soon as possible. that's what i will continue to work for. george. reporter: george parkerfrom the financial times. a very quick question. can the deadline of october 31 be extended again? i think donald tusk said it could be. and you said there is only a single tear of eu mentorship. what were the kind of conditions at the other member states wanted to attach our continued membership? as you will have seen from the decision that is come out of the council tonight it
1:50 am
is very clear that we will continue to abide by our obligations and as i wrote to my letter to donald tusk la st wrote to my letter to donald tusk last week, we will continue to abide by our duty is sincere cooperation as members of the european union. the council and the agreement that we have come to tonight is for that extension to the 31st of october as i say, i am clear that we should all be working now in the uk to make sure we can find a way forward in parliaments, get a majority in parliament, ratified the withdrawal agreement, and make sure we leave as soon as possible. paul. reporter: . first relieving on the 21st of march, the 22nd of may, are your party back i'm going to consider this a trick or treat? what i say is we could've left on the 29th of march and be out of the european union now. if parliament had agreed with the matured and permit to agree that withdrawal agreement. i had
1:51 am
hoped that apartments would have agreed to ratify the withdrawal agreement so that we could have left oi'i agreement so that we could have left on the 22nd of may. if we can now find an agreement implement and put the legislation through in time we could still leave on the 22nd of may and not hold those european punditry elections. what we must all be working for is to find a way we can get the majority in parliament so we can leave the european union, deliver on the referendum, and do it as soon as possible. pippa? reporter: yes, i was looking. donald yes, iwas looking. donald tusk yes, i was looking. donald tusk was suggesting that we could keep on coming back and asked for sentience. what can you give the british people and your own party that breaths it will actually happen? i'm very clear that we must deliver as a government oi'i that we must deliver as a government on brexit. the parliaments gave the choice to people in the referendum. the government said that we would abide by the decision the british people talk. it is now our duty to deliver on that decision. we could
1:52 am
have already left the european union. what i want to do now is to work to ensure that we get that majority of parliament such that we can ratify the european union, leave the deal —— leave the deal, and do it as soon as possible. thank you. —— leave it as soon as possible. thank you. — — leave with it as soon as possible. thank you. —— leave with a deal and do it as soon as possible. theresa may concluding her press conference. a few things to take out of that. we can still leave the european union by the first ofjune if we ratified the steel and get the legislation through in the first three weeks of may. putting more pressure on the uk parliament reiterating several times that she is very clear that she wa nts to that she is very clear that she wants to deliver on brexit. she did say that the conditions, there were not many conditions attached to the ascension that she has been granted until october 31. the uk will still have full membership rights as well as all the obligations that come under the eu treaties. and she acknowledged that although there
1:53 am
would be huge frustration among certainly her backbenchers, that this is not going to go on until october, there is that flexibility within the extension, the guillotine because that if the deal is ratified and passed, then the uk could weave on the first day of the following month. was caulked —— talk to chris morris now, our correspondent. what do you take out of what she was saying there? we fight on, we fight for another day. that question about weaving and time to go, she said that this buys us more time if we can geta that this buys us more time if we can get a deal done before the 22nd of may, we don't have european elections and leave. so if you like she still has that window. i think the rest of the eu are already looking beyond that and thinking that there is a six—month extension period. "let's see what happens throughout that". there is an idea
1:54 am
of this review because injune stop a but there is no cliff edge. we would just see what the processes and we will move on in october but that was partly inserted in the insistence of president macron who have been talking about this date. but the eu's eyes are now at the end of october. theresa may's eyes on the first three weeks of may and what is left of april. but i think her fellow leaders don't have much co nfe re nce her fellow leaders don't have much conference that anything sent if it will happen at that time. the front pages of the tabloid papers in uk, the daily e—mail will say that we could've left on march 29, but could've left on march 29, but could've left on march 29, but could've left in april. we could have left in may and that we're looking at october. and these will be devote questions for her to a nswer stop be devote questions for her to answer stop with they are going to be difficult questions and you do have trick—or—treat or halloween. the trick is we cannot even leave then. i asked the trick is we cannot even leave then. iasked donald the trick is we cannot even leave then. i asked donald tusk and his press conference is there anything
1:55 am
in what has been agreed today that says october the 31st is the final deadline? and he said "no, there isn't". another scenario is possible because article 50, the bit of the lisbon treaty that sets on how you negotiate, says nothing about the fa ct negotiate, says nothing about the fact that you can extend and extend and extend. there are bound to be questions, could we get to late septemberand questions, could we get to late september and early october? we will be in the same position we are now. still deadlocked and no agreement in the united kingdom for some frustration in the rest of europe and a decision that has to be taken. chris morris from our reality check tv. -- chris morris from our reality check tv. —— thank you very much for that the one thing to take is that the uk will not be leaving the european union in two days' time. the cliff edge has been avoided, kicked down the road again towards october 31. the uk will be retaining all its membership rights, it may well be taking part in the european parliamentary elections and may even be taking decisions on the next
1:56 am
european commissioners. all those things will remain in place while the uk remains a member of the european union. you are watching bbc news. no sign of spring warrants in the immediate forecast. it is looking colder. we will look at that and just a moment. first of all how thursday is shaping up and talking about cold weather, a widespread frost to begin the day but a fine day ahead for most places with some sunny spells. high pressure in control at the moment that is blocking with assistance from coming oui’ blocking with assistance from coming our way from the atlantic. also block them out there air from coming oui’ block them out there air from coming our way as well because the high pressure will bring in this chilly breeze from the east and h of the air with blue showing up as thursday begins. a widespread frost away from northern scotland and along with the north sea coast. the breeze and cloud will hold temperatures just above freezing. but there will be a good deal of sunshine in that they
1:57 am
have had but for some of us perhaps not as much as we had on wednesday. parts of eastern england will see a bit more caught around. the week where the front close to scotland, cloud, patchy rain and the odd have your shower could be possible. plenty of cloud moving into northern ireland. it's the easterly breeze and most of us it is light and it will pick up over the weekend but not much going... this is where we are adjusting to single figures. elsewhere in the range of ten and 12 degrees and if we get some sunshine it still will not feel too bad at this time of year. as a go through the night into friday morning, some areas of cloud around and clear spells but the clear weather isn't as widespread so the frost is not as widespread heading into friday morning. just pockets especially in parts of scotland and northeast england. temperatures higher as friday begins. and then on friday there will be more cloud around generally whilst most places will be staying dry, parts of scotland maybe toward the north—east will see a
1:58 am
passing shower and the cloud increasing across east anglia into the south—east of england and could pick upa the south—east of england and could pick up a shower here later in the day. temperatures still peg back and signalfigures on day. temperatures still peg back and signal figures on the north sea coast and it feels cooler on friday and the cooling trend continues further into the weekend. battle taking place between low pressure in the atlantic trying to move in with mild airfor something the atlantic trying to move in with mild air for something colder the atlantic trying to move in with mild airfor something colder air from high pressure holding it and pay over the weekend. so it will stay mainly settled over the weekend. no rain showing up on the charts here but notice the temperatures edging down a degree or so. temperatures edging down a degree or so. and the breeze picking up. i rounded area. dry for most, occasional sunshine and claudia by sunday but a when your picture especially in the west. and it is going to feel chilly in that wind.
