9:11 am
right kristen thanks very much kristen salumi live for us in chico california. britain's prime minister says attempts to try to remove her from power will be pointless and risk delaying brags that negotiations to resign critics are urging her to return to brussels to demand more concessions for a draft deal to me the conservative party opponents are gathering support for a challenge to her leadership but it is unclear whether the forty eight letters of no confidence needed to trigger a vote have been sent by a change of leadership at this point isn't going to make the negotiations uneasy and it's not going to change the parliamentary arithmetic what it will do what it will do is bring in a degree of uncertainty that's uncertainty for people and their jobs what it will do is mean that is a risk that actually we delay the negotiations and that's a risk that wrecks it gets delayed all frustrated. hundreds of people in the mexican border city of tijuana have been protesting against the arrival of asylum

9:21 am
are trying to cross into the u.s. the demonstrators want the government to prevent the migrants from staying in the city those are the headlines inside story is next. andresen may deliver breck's it britain's prime minister is fighting to save her job and convince the nation to back her divorce deal with the e.u. and what if there is no deal this is inside story.
9:22 am
welcome to the program i'm richelle carey britain's exit from the european union has finally been agreed to but for exodus far from a done deal the united kingdom is anything but the country's deeply divided leaders who due to sign the draft document in brussels next week but first m.p.'s in london must approve then prime minister theresa may is under attack from her party from parliament from the public are criticizing her for failing to negotiate better divorce terms to go it alone she says it's the only deal that will work but failing to bow to demands to renegotiate risk losing her job conservative party m.p.'s are gathering support hoping to trigger a vote of no confidence and her leadership the leader of the house of commons has told the prime minister her draft deal needs improving what i'm doing is working very hard to support the prime minister in getting the brics deal at seventeen point four million people voted full and i think there's still the potential to
9:23 am
improve on the clarification and on some of the measures within it and that's what time hoping to be able to help with the french finance minister says some british m.p.'s have lied to british people and the dream of leaving the e.u. is a nightmare. you know we can do it obviously each country is free to decide to leave the single market to leave the european union but what brooks it shows is that the economic cost of leaving the single market is quite simply exorbitant and that there are certainly lying and irresponsible politicians in great britain who explained to the british people that would end up in a bright future the truth is that brooks it will end in a nightmare. and chancellor says the deal is good for everyone this is going. to say it's a good deal for both sides nobody was tricked into it but this deal prevents a heart it helps us in europe but it helps britain even more hardbacks it would hurt great britain much more i sincerely hope that there will be some necessary
9:24 am
support in the british parliament. as introduce the panel now in stockholm by skype james savage c.e.o. of the local europe he also writes on how her exit affects british people in the e.u. and durham tom brokaw's he is an author of the author adler of becoming british and dean and professor of law and government law school and finally and st andrews also by skype through like a mini scottish campaigner welcome to all of you drew i want to start with you is the deal as bad as the critics say yeah i really do think it's that is the critics say and i hate to say it's even a bracks a deal because it's really not bracks and it's really only directed in name only it doesn't allow the united kingdom to become an international player like rex it was supposed to go straight through trade deals and go from there and it is the same time it also and take back control of their laws but at the same time it also could
9:25 am
very well lead to the going up in the breaking up of the united kingdom especially in relation to northern ireland and i will kind of back to that point obviously tom i want your thoughts is this deal as bad as as everybody says. i agree that it is as bad as people say but two years ago i came out and said that when the prime minister was saying bracks it means practice it but wasn't much substance behind it i thought that there wouldn't be any genuine. at all at least not in the plans that we would see and i and then part of me is pleased to see that that's come true another part of me is very disappointed to see what's before us and i want to explain in a second why it's so bad i think on the remains side those who want to stay in european union of course they will not like any deal to leave the european union but the moment britain has a voice at the top table while being subjected to e.u. rules the plan would have a subject to the rules without a say at the table on the leave side so many are upset about this i think because
9:26 am
there are many different voices calling for many different things not all of which can be accommodated and the prime minister will have an impossible task of trying to please everyone and she's shown that she's not been able to please anyone it would seem. james to you do you agree with that what are your thoughts on this this intensely negative response that strathfield has gotten i mean this is this is this was going to this was inevitable from the very beginning there was it was always there the reason was that he used orbit so easily it would be an accident where there's also at least in the short term a very difficult so that was always going to be something that she was not going to be able to deliver. yet of course while doing what she's doing now which is trying to all of the really the result of the referendum and sort of hall. she leaves borrowing many of the benefit she she she takes she she did reason. to the
9:27 am
e.u. in many respects but without the say so you know it's the opposite that this doesn't in the us and this doesn't leave. the i suppose has drafted you really has been supporting both sides equally i'm a submission. the alternative is that it's crashing out without a deal of the remaining those. and stating that you believe so you push this through problem of but it is looking very vocal and james that we've played a little bit of calm some comments from the french finance minister a few minutes ago basically saying that the british people were lied to they were sold a bill of goods and i'm paraphrasing but a lot of people have said that do you agree with that. i think it's quite clear that there were quite a lot of lies told by the campaign the idea. that membership of the european union was costing footage taxpayers three hundred fifty million pounds a week and that money would be able to go to the n.h.s. that was the only with us and the other the obvious lie there was a it was
9:28 am
a it was a pretty ill informed campaign and that was saying that there were those people i think what was significant evidence put forward now are facts of the journalist carol what was there in the guardian who are public. significant evidence of a wrongdoing on the part of the leak campaign basically that lead to the you've been officially campaign that was very prominent kerry your during your during the . reprimand campaign so yeah i think you know we have seen that it's we've seen lots of bites on but it's largely a as you know is the case in politics but the i don't believe in the least like seem to be particularly egregious and i think they say that the comments from the road from the from the french governments have been echoed. by governments around europe who feel what they see happening and through as someone who is prime bracks i want your thoughts on that do you think that people were told that something
9:29 am
could happen that just can't happen absolutely not i think the reason why we're not seeing am abraxas like all these campaigners promise is because we have to remember none of these people that campaign for bracket supported drax it none of them have had an big say in the government none of them have been negotiating the deal this bracks it deal has been negotiated by people who supported remaining in the european union it's all the people who can't get all the government government leaders who are civil servants have been in charge of negotiating and selling this deal to the public they're all people that didn't believe in bracks that they're not people who made the arguments and supporting bracks that will take back control of laws were to take back control of our own trade deal strike our own trade deals and be our own global power. i think the reason why we haven't seen a lot of follow through is on what drugs that your support is because drugs that years have been people who support drugs that have been completely shut out of the negotiation process it's been conducted completely by people that supported remaining in the european union and that's why i don't think we're seeing a bracks it that the majority of people voted for i can tell by their facial
9:30 am
expressions from both james and tom that well both want to get in on that so tom i'll let you go first. well i would respectfully disagree entirely with that within hours of the referendum result nigel farage a very prominent campaigner for leaving dropped out of politics quit altogether was going to have anything to do with actually delivering the bricks that he didn't get painting for for about a quarter of a century boris johnson a michael gove. drops out doesn't even try to become leader of the tory party when then prime minister david cameron stepped down you know basically removing himself from having anything to do substantially with bracks it's as the leader michael gove quickly removed from the leadership contest himself everyone prominence who wanted it to happen during the campaign were ran like scared little children how it came time to actually putting something together and that said through some a i thought played a blinder in choosing david davis to be your backs
9:31 am
a secretary who is the politically charged for the government in seeing through cracks it and then having boris johnson pointed foreign secretary of course both ran away as soon as a deal was to be agreed by the cabinet citing lots of things they don't like but never once being able to provide any plausible alternative to this so there have been senior exit tears have been at the top table michael gove is a member of the government was the co-chair of the official who leave campaign so it's not like a brick to tears had nothing to do with it and were away a lot of them ran away a lot of them chose not to be part of this and i think that there is a lot of responsibility on them for failing to deliver on the promises that they made in terms of lying i think that there was mistruths on both sides and i think that there is a wider issue around campaign finance rules that were violated and the need for some further criminal investigation there but i think that that main point about
9:32 am
well you know the deal isn't so good and we'll go blame a civil servant doesn't if most blood on its face. james what about where are the people that feel very strongly about bracks it why and why did some of them back away from the table from these leadership roles i think there are various reasons i mean one reason was is that they went as we're not exactly take very clear that boris johnson wasn't going to get that they got the confidence of a fellow m.p.'s to become leader of the party but i also think. i think beyond the the issue of personalities i think what people come very during the back to negotiations is that while many of the practices that have very strong ideas about what they've done in school they haven't been very clear about how to resolve that and very key problems in the back to negotiations one of which is how to avoid the hard core between northern ireland and the republic of ireland which everyone says they want to avoid. that required the problem of his about swipe through the maze
9:33 am
trying to keep the whole of the u.k. within their customs union post-process. because that will help avoid that border so you know i think you know that there were democrats in two years who were in those positions where they had but they were able to make a difference to these negotiations david davis was officially that the chief bratton because they said he was like why did recently in recent months but from the very beginning he was that he knew. what the problem was not ready or not it is a problem or some fundamental contradictions that perhaps it that they have a problem with drew a threesome a has sat and some are supporters have said if you hate what i'm doing so much then where are the better ideas. does she have a point. i don't really think so at all and i think that. as it stands right now i think it's a better idea to leave. leave without a deal than the deal that's on the table i strongly contend that no deal is always
9:34 am
better than a bad deal this this current deal right now would tie the u.k. into into the side and still into the customs union where the u.k. would be able to strike their own trade deals it would put northern ireland a century under dublin brussels rule so i think a better idea than this deal right now is frankly leaving without a deal i think that and i think the point about drax it here is running away from the negotiation table running away from responsibility i don't think that's fully accurate either they left the table and they left these posts because they were shut out they were either not given the opportunity of leadership contest or they were put in senior government officials positions such as brackets secretary they were sidelined in the negotiations their job was sell this to the british public it wasn't to actually negotiate the deal so they were leaving the government out of protest to show that they weren't having any part of this to show that they were being shut out of the deal tom iraq and i think you have an issue with that. well i think he have you have david davis press secretary for his transom his
9:35 am
foreign secretary and then liam fox overseeing trade you know people are the senior members secretaries joining the government in the cabinet i mean they were not junior if they weren't doing anything for a couple years and they were wasting taxpayer money knowingly surely they had some kind of hand in this you know certainly boris johnson his foreign secretary had it at a hand in delivering the kind of practice it and it's just simply true that people ran away from the leadership contest as soon as they could roger pharaoh's was nowhere to be seen boris johnson maybe didn't have the votes from various people that in even trying to get the votes he had people who wanted to make him tory leader he didn't even try he had a personality been that he was going even take part so i think that you know they really haven't shown leadership they saw how difficult it would be to deliver on their promises and they chose it was better to snipe at the sidelines they do something substantive or make a point very quickly on a new deal i think the deal is
9:36 am
a very significant problem for its reality and that is we do not have in the united kingdom any infrastructure no system no people in place to organize custom checks and other types of things that would have to happen within months there's been no one hired there is no new agency there is nothing in place to make any of this happen and so it's a kind of we without a deal because well we don't want to be tied into certain things we don't don't like i think is is particularly irresponsible given that the enormous challenges the numerous shut down that would happen to britain not least no planes would be able to fly over europe from from the u.k. from from the end of march so it would be it's really much worse than i think then when you look at the details and that's been something that davis johnson go and others have not wanted to talk about the details really it's just makes the whole no deal such an aerial really think. bill james am obviously the e.u.
9:37 am
didn't want this divorce right this is the u.k. the you didn't want this to happen so you know they're not going to make the negotiations easy the but the person that doesn't want to divorce usually doesn't having said that is the e.u. driving too hard of a bargain and if the u.k. and damaged in this is that bad for everybody i don't think you could accuse the e.u. driving too hard about it they've been very consistent throughout in setting in setting out with promises of what they were wrong with what i'm told they said is that we're going to look after ourselves if you want to leave us feeling but we're going to look up our own interests we have a single market that we work very hard to build up over many years and it's a very it's a rules based single market i am if you want to be pope about single market you're going to have to pay the bills and the brits are saying the brits are visiting but we want all the benefits of the single market but we don't want to be bound by its rules or by the european court of justice now the europeans that was that was a red line a couple red lines but the europeans have had bad red lines as well and with them
9:38 am
it's about protecting the system that they've got and you know they don't want which is a suit benefit from leaving the e.u. but that's not what a little group is issuing but there is one to be and they want to protect the they want to protect the institutions they've built up and they don't want a situation where it's seen as advantageous to the e.u. and you can get all the fact that but none of the growth of that would be that would be unsustainable for. drew i want to go back to a point that tom made a minute ago that there are there's been these grand talked about about all these ideas of what bracks it should and could be but not a lot of digging down into the details of how you actually make this happen and it's very very soon what of that where are the people that have the nuts and bolts on how to actually execute something this huge this historic. right i mean i think the people are there they were there if they are they they are there and that's why there's a leadership challenge to the prime minister right now they aren't satisfied with
9:39 am
they aren't satisfied with what's going on they want to put another prime minister in power who actually deliver iraq that they want i'm talking about you're taking a tough negotiations and of course you're going to take a tougher to get negotiation stance anyone should and could take in a tough negotiation stance on something this important but you know the the u.k. is not chopped liver the u.k. has could take just as tough as a stance to hurt the european union if they wanted to publicly they could say what's going to happen when the european union doesn't get any of our funding where in that funder of the european union are french farmers going to start riding when they don't get their subsidy is. going to pay subsidies to eastern european countries it's really i think in the u.k. strikes a great free trade deal with the u.s. in the u.s. it still trading on w t o rules with the e.u. there's plenty of situations where the u.k. comes out of this much much stronger than the european union does and knowing that the europe the u.k. has to be willing to walk away in the deal i think i think that's the most
9:40 am
important thing at this point the u.k. needs to get tougher a negotiation bring out the you know the united kingdom is pretty much we necessary a favor we need a deal that helps all side ok i deal european union so tom what what is going to happen and that coming days is theresa may going to survive this is this about her leadership and where the world is a deal going to come from. well it seems clear that there's a lot of anger not disappointment on her own benches we've been hearing poor most of the last week about letters of no confidence being submitted to graham brady a graduate. calling for a possible no confidence in the prime minister and we were all waiting for this day after day and none of that's happened and some company commentators have said if the if the anti-trust i'm a horse's dinner party can't organize forty eight letters they definitely won't be
9:41 am
able to organize a better treaty that could be something very soon and i would rule out that you know her leadership is under some some serious challenge if she were to be if she was to lose but if she were to win a vote of confidence then she would be safe or at least another year the tories wouldn't be able to do it again for another year and we may well and she'll be able to try to proceed with her plan but win or lose the no confidence vote i think there's no there's just not votes for the current plan and the new deal seems unless there's some other change the more likely outcome because she's in a minority government her m.p.'s are not a majority she relies on the d.v.d. party and or that are than they get anything through on that she can get some extra votes from opposition parties there's no support in any of the opposition parties for this plan there are significant minority of her own party is against this in the u.p.a. is about against this so she's going to surely lose votes on this bill is seen that
9:42 am
she's going to move ahead with that so there's been no deal i would not rule out if she were to succeed in staying as prime minister which i think none of us have any certainty about i think it could be likely she will she could lose this confidence vote ok this deal is going to fail and if it does i suspect parliament is going to go for another referendum jane wow ok so our question then to you james do you think that this draft deal will go down in flames and do you think there really could be another referendum. absolutely so by the questions i mean the if you look at it if you look at the parliament to represent it's very very very hard to think about how to get this deal through one shouldn't rule that out she's being she has a very tricky situations before and parliaments are to manage to pull through but yeah i think that it's very likely that a combination of her own autocrat city has and basically remain as in the rest
9:43 am
about how will. this deal that but if that happens it's pretty clear also that there is not a majority in the house of commons or no deal situation i think most most m.p.'s most mainstream m.p.'s are of no deal and that a second referendum becomes a way out for those m.p.'s so i wouldn't i think that's a that's hardly likely scenario but anything anything could happen but that is a hobby that is not ok interest same question and the final question do you think that this will go to another referendum do you think that a deal will be reached right no i don't think they'll be another referendum the united kingdom is not a banana republic two years ago when there was a referendum the government sent out a leaflet that said they're going to follow through on the vote there i mean i don't think there's read you votes i think it's a very very bad precedent for democracy when you have a vote and then two years later decide it's time to do
9:44 am
a reading vote so i don't think a referendum will be happening i don't think the majority in the conservatives or the labor party wants that to happen and as of right now i would say it's most likely there would be no deal hopefully there's a deal i think there is a deal the needle benefit both sides as they occur if the current deal is the only option on the table right now so i think it'll be the deal no second referendum in general do you think that teresa mayes the person that can get this thing which i like it to be somebody else. look i think of theresa may i think she will survive the vote of no confidence that's my best gas but if she doesn't get this deal through the house of commons i think it's very likely that she'll resign and someone else will step up and deliver an amended deal or no deal for white house but i think it i think that the that let the real litmus test is not on the vote of no confidence it's on getting this deal to the commons and if it doesn't go through the commons i would put my money on trees and there's a james i know you want to get in on that roll quick i can tell by your face i have
9:45 am
no i mean. i think if there is it is very sit down i think there is a that very very little that suggests that the public will go for an ideal situation it's hardly it's highly unlikely that parliament will allow that to happen but i really think it's very unlikely that the european union negotiated that mr mitchell bonnie's game is going to allow the reopening of negotiations that been conducting a painstaking about right to yes i think the idea of going back to the drawing board and having a renegotiation is very very unlikely ok and that'll be the final word gentlemen thank you so much for this conversation i'm sure we will continue to have this conversation james savage tom franks and sure liquor men thank you for watching as well you can see the program again any time if you go to our website al-jazeera dot com for further discussion got our facebook page that's facebook dot com ford slash a.j. inside story and you can also join the conversation on twitter or handle as at a.j.

9:55 am
on the eighth of june nineteenth sixty eight american speech tribute to a remarkable politician the younger brother of former president john f. kennedy senator robert kennedy had been assassinated three days earlier in the back room of a los angeles hotel. sirhan b. charest her husband was arrested at the scene of the crime in what the los angeles police department the l.a.p.d. thought was an open and shut case. which i. and to prove that there was a travesty of justice in one thousand sixty nine if search and trial were trying to prove that there was no way that he could have shocked a senator let alone killed a senator.
9:56 am
my main job right now is putting the truth together that's her hand not sure robert the second gunman that. if you look at him he came to america in the late fifty's as a child as a refugee from palestine. he had quite a tough life growing up and then suddenly he's in the spotlight as the assassin the robert kennedy without remember anything that happened that night.
9:57 am
kennedy had authorized the selling of bombers to israel and that incensed him because he was from palestine and he felt the palestinians were getting a bad rap that's what his lawyers argued in the trial that he was so upset at that that he kind of snapped and went into a self-induced trance and and killed kennedy in a you know moment of rage. i believe that's her hand was a gentle person he had never done a violent thing in this life. when he saw kennedy speak at an earlier event he said kennedy looked like a saint to him and. it's like this was
9:58 am
a man whose politics really lined up with certain hands so it is a weird break for him to suddenly turn out to want to kill the guy who really is more sympathetic to his cause than any other politician on the american scene sirhan sirhan had no criminal record before robert kennedy's assassination he wasn't involved in any political activity and the palestinian cause had no real traction in the u.s. at the time despite the nine hundred sixty seven war i would think in terms of a case like this properly looking into it and properly looking at a guy who's still in prison and lee harvey oswald obviously was killed two days after the j.f.k. assassination james earl ray the alleged killer of martin luther king he died in the late ninety's so crn is still with us why not investigate his case properly and while there's still time and we can do some something about it. in twenty seventeen u.s. president donald trump ordered the release of all documents relating to the assassination
9:59 am
of john f. kennedy robert kennedy's older brother in one thousand nine hundred sixty three these files had remained classified since one thousand nine hundred sixty four but i didn't hear anybody not that. you know harvey oswald was arrested in dallas but was shot dead two days later live on t.v. and so never went to trial. sirhan sirhan was arrested at the scene of robert kennedy's shooting and sentenced to death in april one thousand nine hundred sixty nine commuted to life imprisonment three years later. but since the nine hundred seventy s. commentators in eyewitnesses have called for a new investigation and in twenty twelve the senator's son robert kennedy jr wrote to the attorney general asking for new evidence to be considered in the case.
10:00 am
al-jazeera has now examined the different theories about the assassination and the reasons behind calls for a new investigation into the conviction of her han nearly fifty years ago. quite right a lot of evidence was destroyed a lot of evidence was scandalous or endless. in the case that they in any murder case to destroy evidence the way they. are and. you know i can't speak for the l.a.p.d. and why it you know they didn't do a better job investigating the case why they destroyed some evidence i don't know.
