against the government against his person a true throw out the 24 chary rebels immediately after the vote and so he now is minus $21.00 parliamentarians so the only route left for him now is to call elections however on tuesday the opposition will come up and sort of push this last through their wills tied his hands towards him against a hard core and no deal for exit that is one aspect the other aspect is the new elections when will boris johnson go to parliament was that will he do it tomorrow will he do it the day after because he needs a 2 thirds majority in parliament to sort of call early elections and as we see now and as it stands he doesn't have that so it's a conundrum wherever you look somehow it seems there is an impossibility enviros johnson looks like the big loser of the day that doesn't have to stay that way he

unclear because he made completely contradictory x x gave completely contradictory explanations during the course of the debates say oh it again this might be a win for the opposition that in the end turns out to be quite hollow which is chaos reigns in british politics as we see that nobody really knows the way forward everybody is sort of maneuvering in trying to sort of get one over the other side and there is no telling who will be the ultimate winner and loser after these all right barbara faisal thanks very much for keeping us up to date in london. let's turn to some other stories making news around the world italy's antiestablishment 5 star movement has agreed to a new governing coalition with the center left democratic party 5 star leader of the said party members overwhelmingly approved the move in an online poll the

1:09 am
meteorologist matthew joins me now from washington welcome matthew so the hurricane lingered in especially a long time over the bahamas is is that kind of thing unusual you know something i have not seen during my career before to see a category 5 hurricane linger that long sure we get stronger storm from time to time but this storm moved at less than 2 kilometers per hour for 24 hours and in the process scour the ground with winds in excess of 250 kilometers per hour. that does sound like quite a storm so with that in mind where is this storm expected to head now what's the latest track. so the storm a since weakened a little bit down to a category 2 right now but it is still threatened still forecast to threaten the eastern part of florida as a rise of the coast about 50 to 70 kilometers offshore so over the next 2 days it'll parallel the florida peninsula eventually making a run toward the carolinas towards georgia maybe skirting with some damaging winds close to 100 kilometers per hour coastal flooding about one meter to 2 meter storm
1:10 am
surge and some very heavy rainfall close about 15 centimeters in a few spots and there's even a chance the carolinas the outer banks could see some isolated tornado activity thanks to the strong winds in the upper atmosphere associated with the hurricane after that should pass harmlessly out to sea and be probably pretty much a fish storm after that so as you just mentioned it's been downgraded to a category 2 that might strike many people are saying it's not so much of a problem anymore could you lay out what's what are some of the dangers that this storm still poses for people on the atlantic coast so one thing we have to remember when a hurricane starts to weaken so to speak is that it's not really weakening per se in terms of the size of the storm in fact when hurricanes what are called spin down even though their core of strong winds isn't quite as strong the core actually expands so now we're seeing this wind field broad anough to encompass the coast whereas before it wouldn't do that so more areas along the immediate coastline in the united states are at risk for that wind and the wind isn't even all that bad
1:11 am
when you compare to the coastal flooding there are a lot of areas in florida and the carolinas this it only perhaps half a meter to a meter above sea level and when you're talking a one to 2 meter storm surge that could put some coastal areas under water during the high tides in the next few days and this hurricane has been said have been one of the most powerful on record what does it tell us about this year's atlanta current cane season. so linux arcane season right now is actually been off to a slow start prior to dorie and we're only in the d.s. in terms of the names which are alphabetical and normally would be pretty much stores like f g h right now so it was a slow start that said we're moving towards a climatological peak of hurricane season when the waters of the warmest the hurricanes are really getting going and i think the stronger storms could be a trend alluding to a future more peppered with these severe storms thanks to climate change all right matthew which in washington d.c. thank you very much for your insights thank you.
