7:00 pm
this is the news live from britain's parliamentary vote. the prime minister admits to lawmakers of the deal doesn't have enough support to reason to brussels for more talks the e.u. would be willing to compromise also on the program french president emanuel. prepares to address the nation following weeks of violent protests planned fuel tax increases. the u.s. over the indictment of a senior who executive. really undermine u.s.
7:01 pm
sanctions against iran or is washington using her as a pawn in the trade conflict with. a mom a cold dr miracle we meet a doctor who's helped scores of women in the democratic republic of congo overcome horrific injuries and the trauma of right today he received the nobel peace prize in recognition of his achievements. welcome to the program british prime minister theresa may has delayed the u.k.'s parliament's vote. in a noisy session the prime minister told us they would not be voting tomorrow on the draft deal she spent two years negotiating a reason simply not enough support as pro and protesters marched outside inside this. i promise to return to brussels and some more negotiations it is clear
7:02 pm
that this house faces a much more fundamental question. does this house wants to deliver bricks it. i. think it is now still. does it want to do so through reaching an agreement with the e.u. if the answer is yes and i believe that is the answer with a majority at this house and we all have to ask ourselves whether we are prepared to make a compromise because there will be no enduring and successful grex it without some compromise on both sides here today. many of the most controversial aspects of this dealing kluge in the past are are simply inescapable facts of having a negotiated brix it those members who continue to disagree need to shoulder the
7:03 pm
responsibility of advocating an alternative solution that can be delivered. straight to london then we're joined by correspondent barbara vai's will welcome barbara does anyone besides the prime minister believe she can pull together a parliamentary majority for this deal. we lost the line am afraid so that's that's a problem if bob are available can't hear very. we will do something else and come back to. let's do the back stuff the main sticking point in the current deal is the so-called the bad stuff arrangements over the border on the island of ireland the aim is to maintain an open border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which would which of course is not going to remain a member of the european union if you carry a leaves the e.u. without an all encompassing deal the backstop would keep northern ireland within
7:04 pm
the e.u. customs union but that would create different conditions between northern ireland and the rest of the u.k. in the eyes of some that would effectively mean a kind of border within the u.k. others say the measure would keep britain under the e.u. customs rules and leave the country tied to the union so today theresa may said she would take those concerns back to the european union leaders and seek great a clarification on the issue i spoke to a number of e.u. leaders over the weekend and in advance of the european council i will go to see my counterparts in other member states and the leadership of the council and the commission i will discuss with them the clear that this house has expressed. despite that it's by no means clear at this stage that european leaders will be willing to make the kind of concessions that would allow me to get the deal through parliament. as president you can sense this is the best and only deal possible we're not renegotiate our position has done for not changed and as far as we are
7:05 pm
concerned the united kingdom is leaving they are playing union on the twenty ninth of march two thousand and ninety so i can only say what i said earlier we've already offered a lot of concessions along the way we ended up with the backstop with the central agreement because i hope all the red lines of the u.k. laid out on the way this is with all agreements which are supported twenty eight member states it's not possible to open up any one aspect of this without opening up all aspects of the great i've no difficulty with you know statements that clarify what's in them which are all agreements but no statement of capitation can contradict what's in the control agreement. ok so it makes certainly has a mountain to climb scally is the irish times that correspondent welcome to d w those sounded like very hognose from the e.u. . we've been talking about hot breakfast and saw how how hob of those nose those nose are hard from now if this is a game of chicken it's
7:06 pm
a very dangerous game of chicken for took it from an irish perspective i'm from arlington for two and a half years we've been waiting for clarity i mean this backs up they're going to talking about it's rather technical term it's effectively an insurance policy people say we have a very good system in our own and we have a soft border trade goes back and forth and not trade and not prosperity is the current or peace twenty year old twenty years of peace in our land and if you start thinking with that if you have insecurity on that and people are wondering where is that going to go what's going to happen what's going to happen to trade what's going on and people lose their jobs will they be if there's lots of pied pipers in northern ireland still higher and thinking they can pick off people and go back to the bad old days and i think is just this is just an experiment it's like performing an experiment without an honest static and this is been going on for two and a half years so if britain is playing hardball the playing hardball back but it's really getting down to the wire because it's set us to speak out a couple of strands within the us first of all it is clear that regardless of political fudges that have been done no doubt in part of the u.k.
7:07 pm
divide and. its own sovereign entity within the e.u. it's going to have to be a border somewhere and people around the world are going to look at this people with around the world who don't have long memories are going to look at this is what we have borders everywhere that's what happens between political entities and sovereign countries up people in ireland really going to start shooting the moment the they see a border post go no but what's really going to happen is we've got the european union has said it's backing our than the republic of iran the staying inside the european union why would it want to sell down one of its members down the river. so what they're saying is no i'm sorry mrs may you called the election after brag that you wanted to boost your political support you ended up coming back to prom with less support you're not depend of one of the parties in northern arledge who was actually also in favor of break that effect if there's a i think you're going to have to double crossed i'm going to do some sort of a deal because the notion of of a hard border is far less than the notion of putting some sort of border through
7:08 pm
the irish sea so you'll actually have trucks being checked while they're on a ferry which is far less damaging at least you don't have traffic johns like if you have people waiting twenty four hours on a hard border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland i've been trying hard border i think poland the border with ukraine people talk about all we can of technology it'll all be magical there won't be anything there are fourteen football fields worth of infrastructure every bit of technology on there the sun and yet the trucks are still waiting twenty four hours so i don't think anyone wants trucks waiting twenty four hours but the british government have been basically pussy footing around for two and a half years saying it'll all be fine and we want to have our cake we want to eat our cake and at this stage the government in dublin is getting very nervous because if the rest of europe thinks yeah we will just have to we'll just have to sell dublin down the river this is. just just look the point is obviously that there is
7:09 pm
a relationship between dublin and brussels but this relationship between london and dublin as well the u.k. as i was biggest simple part the number two in terms of exports nobody wants no deal because everybody loses it but it seems odd that leo varadkar should be maintaining such a hot stuff well don't forget this two things at play here there was breaks it and then they decided after this oh we're also going to leave at the customs union that's a separate thing entirely if threesome and said we're going to stay inside the customs union the trucks could keep rolling but that was something she decided to do that was a political decision i don't know of. people who voted for brags that or voted against break the news that the customs union thing was coming up as well so she's painters' off into a corner she's paynter self and her allies in northern ireland into a corner and yes as you say it's could be really hard ball but at this stage we're now three months away from something they've had two and a half years to prepare for she said there was a widespread and deep concern over the deal she was putting to pond we've had
7:10 pm
widespread and deep concern for two and a half years so this is their rendezvous were reality and i think many people in europe are saying to quote mrs may get on with it very steadily for be honest times thank you. let's go back to date of the barbara faisal london on the back of the new sentence reduced by high supper spode this vote. barbara we've just been talking about the buck stop and that the situation and i haven't is that we hope in london for theresa may to get on with it. if there is any hope it is completely illusionary because everybody who's a realist even in her own rose even in her own party knows it must know off to all these months of talking back and forth that the irish backstop is not to be removed the european union will do one saying not it will not sort of leave behind member country arland in order to save to reason may that will simply not happen and of
7:11 pm
course if you look at british media everybody says so and she my snow's is no this is the problem is is she going back to brussels and giving it another try just for show just to demonstrate demonstrate that she has tried everything and indeed there he is and then she will need to come back here talk to parliament again sort of soften the noise again and all that yelling and screaming and say ok listen folks i did my best but it didn't happen so now please vote for me so the chances are really not very good for her that she can push to deal through in that way so you think there are there are no crumbs that they can throw. can they stroke her something they can give her a friendly sentence in the political declaration where they say that both sides the european union and britain do not intend the backs up to last indefinitely of
7:12 pm
course it even the e.u. doesn't want that really because it is a piece of cherry picking britain gets a relatively good conditions there and doesn't have to pay into the budget for instance for the free access for trucks rolling back and for us it gets. so it is not something that is supposed to last but we know that the political declaration is just a piece of paper it's not a contract it doesn't mean that much and everybody can change their minds during the course of next year when the real negotiations about the future relationship begin so yes that's possible but will it sway palm and i have my sincere doubts so if you are union chooses not to change the deal on the table a deal that it looks like the british parliament will reject it what then are three some a's next options. but options are of course to try again and failed their option is of course to be somehow thrown out of
7:13 pm
government voted out by her own party who suffers still the idea is still there vote of no confidence even though the labor party is really aiming at having new elections the option also is of course a heartbreaks it and that is coming closer now because time is really running away from the british negotiators in brussels there is not really much to do the european parliament needs to needs to sort of say yes agree to the deal and we're only three months more or less from britain leaving the e.u. so the heartbreaks it can still happen it becomes more likely the more trees a make kicks the can down the road today there are rumors in london that she might really push things out into the general the trainees first of january is the last day she will have to hold a vote that's a lot of time for parliamentarians to stew over breaks it and whether that will
7:14 pm
save her head and the powerful party nobody knows precisely in london thank you. so some of the other stories making news around the world left wing groups in the philippines coupled. monella international human rights day by protesting against president deter plan to prolong martial law in the south of the country they said the measures of fuels political killings a crackdown on dissent and fear it could be expanded to the home of the top. russian former policeman who was already serving a life sentence for multiple murders has been found guilty of fifty six more killings making him the country's most prolific serial killer of recent times the pop culture was jailed in twenty fifteen for breaking the given twenty two women he'd given lists to duty. i mean years reformist prime minister as a further cements of his wealth or after winning snub parliamentary elections and

7:17 pm
you on the program because you say you've been part of my home across campaign but this was a grassroots campaign this is something that started with the people it did not start with business leaders and with trade unions they're doing this over their heads so why is he meeting with them what's he going to do with them. because he's trying to reach from the country and that's was interesting at this moment you know joe let me stick way to other guys president's man who was elected to reform fronts to make it challenging to bring the hope and that you know that france is a very difficult country to reform for many reasons true surety speaking and going to meet you speaking it's not a good time to present i'm trying to do i don't have seeing so far i don't talk he probably had my process i repeat and did some mistakes in terms of communicating with the walking keep communicating with cows and dismemberment just trying to do

7:20 pm
show. after weeks of protests the government says that the french economy will lose around two billion euros this quarter compared to the previous one. with some of his new reporting quitting i think it's very bad for the french economy very bad for business owners very bad news for small and small and medium sized businesses for artisans for all those who were counting on the end of year sales to bring in higher revenue and perhaps to pay their employees better that will not be possible . along with retailers hotels and airlines are also taking a hit since the yellow vests took to the streets four weeks ago many tourists have decided to stay at home the central bank says that the protests have also interrupted supply chains in industry as well and so the government hopes that this current wave of protests will subside as soon as possible.

does lead i'm glad needed a victory on sunday to defend that second place in the table and they managed it in convincing style lackluster defending on the part of visiting stuttgart but all the difference. that back home crowd haven't seen their team lose all season and the foes had reason to feel confident against stuttgart who had managed just eleven points from thirteen games. the hosts would have had to lead after half an hour when michelle lang mopped up some pinball in the penalty area but for an unwelcome intervention from an offside allison a player that calls the goal to be kissed and now. lost it until late in the second half when some standoffish to got defending left rafael free to turn in florian moyes houses cross i had started to rain on stuttgart it promptly began to pour. with. men between the ball and the goal they still couldn't manage

a long tradition of migration around seventy percent of families here have relatives abroad many settle in neighboring african countries but europe is also a frequent destination. migrants make a significant contribution to the local economy sending home remittances of more than one point seven billion euros a year more is joined a trade union to fight for the livelihoods of fishermen in k r but there's little hope things will improve soon. he says he gets frequent calls from people across the country asking him how to get to europe. to get over or going to get over someone is trying to organize a journey then i'll give them advice because we know all the routes and the means people need to get. these men say they won't lead such an expedition themselves but more again harper's dreams of europe. to seize all we

a million so we took to the streets of johannesburg and nairobi to get some insight as to how people feel about migration in fact countries. become having. fun fun fun fun it's not what don't. you go to other countries you can't just like that but just like you are these are human beings you. want to come here they come in large numbers some of them are the cause of insecurity when you are like terrorism. it's like you do. if you can't come to this high rates of unemployment and crime and ills and those is a mostly impacted by the emigrants that come to our country for misuse well what he says is there is a mellow jail is the hospital's soul so the pecans don't get such resources because
7:37 pm
we have to share with people from other countries. let's get more on this from journalist a two so camillo in johannesburg welcome to day w two so so south africa took in the most migrants from the rest of the continent last year and we heard there and i report. south africans feeling that foreigners are a burden on the threats to their livelihood what do the facts say yes definitely to the who go most of the laughers they think in foreign of the squeezing the space is special in that comes to getting jobs they think it most migrants they took up jobs that they could be taking here and there's also accuse them of taking even their women and even in most dollars they are being accused of crowding hospitals and even when it comes to housing other government officials they point for announcing the kind provide enough housing to their lookouts but
7:38 pm
also what an ass so they're not of accusations that look kind of give it to foreigners and of course you don't understand because as you have saved quite a number of foreigners from almost all of the countries that have come in south africa. ok so given all those criticisms do the facts actually bad ass out definitely not because for example the accusation that they're coded most doesn't discover that most of the health service is here in deteriorated not because of the foreigners but because they have not been mundane but. also. go to to make sure it can't as well it's not as if that's one of the jobs up and sent you also and just in the south african it's only exists in going into twenty seven percent unemployment. ok looks like we're lost. there's a kemal or not jobless but i think we got the gist but i call him dr miracle and
