1:00 pm
to build a relationship with one of the key campaigns who paid. people in power on al jazeera. this is al jazeera. hello and welcome i'm peter w. watching the news hour live from our headquarters here in doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. i will contest that vote with everything i've got defiant and combative to resume a braces for a leadership challenge over her unpopular breck's a deal. a nationwide hunt across france for the gunman who killed at least two
1:01 pm
people at a christmas market in strassburg. free for now a chinese executive is granted bail in a case that's heightened trade tensions with the u.s. . and calls get louder for the release of two million marginalist named as time magazine's person of the year. we begin in the u.k. where the bricks drama has triggered a challenge to to resume a's leadership of her governing conservative party tory m.p.'s will vote in the coming hours to decide her fate prime minister may has responded defiantly saying she'll face the vote of confidence with everything she's got she's insisting the challenge from more than forty eight of her own m.p.'s does risk derailing the brics a process. a change of leadership in the conservative party now will put our
1:02 pm
country's future at risk and create uncertainty when we can least afford it. a new leader wouldn't be in place by the twenty first of january legal deadline so a leadership election risks handing control of the bricks in negotiations to opposition m.p.'s in parliament the new leader wouldn't have time to renegotiate a withdrawal agreement and get the legislation through parliament by the twenty ninth of march so one of their first acts would have to be extending or rescinding article fifty delaying or even stopping breck's it we have two correspondents covering the story in a moment we'll speak to dominic cain in brussels on the reaction from european leaders first let's go to john a whole who's in london so journal she's found her line basically if you get rid of me you will have possibly prime minister corgan running backs it. what world or possibly no breaks it at all yes though those seem to be the two
1:03 pm
stark options she has presented at least to the country speaking to the country earlier outside ten downing street and she'll probably repeat them to her own m.p.'s when she addresses them at five pm ahead of that vote we know because there's been a lot of talk in the last few days since the government decided to pull the meaningful vote on her deal on her breaks a deal which was due to happen on tuesday night we know that they've been loud calls for the labor party for jeremy corbin the leader of the official opposition to call a vote of confidence in parliament over the government with smaller opposition parties lining up to say they'd support it the thinking is that jeremy corbyn is waiting for his moment to strike and that moment he assumed would be when parliament votes down her deal it could equally be when she herself is thrown from from office by her own party in a new prime minister is brought in that's the that's the threat of an election if you like but then a new prime minister would have to pretty much start again because the deal that
1:04 pm
she has negotiated when it's got her name stamped on it she has staked her premiership her reputation on it we know there's no majority for it in parliament a new deal would have to be sought and there isn't the time for it that raises the very painful prospect for a lot on the right of the conservative party and progress that is generally of rescinding article fifty percent stopping the entire process in its tracks these are her dual pitches to the country to her party to give her more time to win concessions from the european union and try and get the deal that she's got through parliament is there a penny there that hasn't quite dropped yet with some of the governing conservative party and is this what this one hundred six hundred seven days to bricks it this process if she loses the vote must by definition take at least half that time so therefore whatever happens they may have to consider rolling over article fifty and they can only do that one time. well i
1:05 pm
mean yes indeed that must now start to factor in people's calculations about this what is in effect a huge gamble because of course if she wins this confidence vote she is immune from challenge for twelve months if she loses it then as you say that possibility comes into play it's a one off chance extend article fifty and sort of hope for the best but there's a there's a date a little sooner than that peter which also will be pressing heavily on people's minds and that's the twenty first of january at which point the government is mandated by legislation passed in parliament here to turn up with a deal or to make a statement of parliament saying we've not been able to make a deal and that effectively hands control of the entire process to parliament now if this leadership contest goes on at two to elect a not just a new leader of the total party but a new prime minister that may well past the twenty first of january date so that the hard bricks of his if you like risk the possibility of losing control of the entire process all of these things will be weighing heavily on the minds of employees in the conservative party because it's all about the conservative party
1:06 pm
as indeed it has been for years on this issue tonight jonah clearly you're standing there on college green just in the shadow of big ben ten downing street from the corner but outside the westminster hothouse the voters whether they went for breakfast it or not the people of the u.k. must now be looking in on this and going really you're going to do this now. i mean you know one can only imagine them being newsman to among voters and citizens of the country watching this process and you know the polls when you look at the polls and they're coming out daily now and different polls note fluctuations in all sorts of different directions towards a second referendum possibly calling the whole thing off towards to reason a vote towards a softer breaks or to norway option towards a no deal breaker the crucial thing is that there is such a level of division not just in parliament but among the electorate that there is
1:07 pm
no evident majority for any of the possible outcomes on the table that's a problem in itself and when you add compound the uncertainty and confusion around all of those options add to that a leadership election within the governing party a prime ministerial potential change in the weeks and months to come with so little time left anyway yes i can only imagine how that must confound the average of you looking in turn i will talk to later i am sure about that one for them in the meantime many thanks ok just after ten local time in london that means it's just after eleven local time in brussels our correspondent cain is there any reaction yet from european parliamentarians or european leaders indeed. not so far but the point to make here peter is that the president of the european council the council of ministers donald tusk is meeting michel barnier the man
1:08 pm
empowered by the e.u. institutions to lead the negotiations regarding briggs's we wait to see exactly what will emerge from that meeting perhaps they are talking about well what they discussed with me what mr discussed with to resume a yesterday remember that she'd had that whistle stop tour of european capitals yesterday that took in the hague it took in berlin and of course it took in brussels here and indeed she was in the building behind me in the european commission meeting president jiang claude younker the man who had said to european m.p.'s in strasburg before she arrived that there was no possibility of renegotiation of the deal but he did perhaps offer her a crumb of comfort by saying well with intelligent use of clarifications and interpretations maybe there is a way through this question is what would those interpretations be because we were hearing from jonah there about the divisions in parliament the divisions in the conservative party in the united kingdom well by contrast here certainly at the
1:09 pm
e.u. level of institutions no division whatsoever they believe that the deal that they struck which they thought they had struck with to reason may is the only deal in town and indeed that was the message that she took from her meetings with mark router the dutch prime minister from angela merkel in berlin the german chancellor and indeed from the meetings with two presidents of e.u. institutions donald tusk and john quote here in brussels yesterday so that's the dilemma that she came back from brussels effectively with a message which was well we we really understand your predicament but the deal we agreed is the deal we agreed and that's it dominic thanks very much. ok let's unbundle some of the numbers for you what happens next all three hundred fifteen conservative party m.p.'s in the house of commons are eligible to take part in the vote of confidence in mrs knees. leadership she needs a simple majority to win that means one hundred fifty eight votes if all m.p.'s take part they will if she does win she remains in office and can't be challenge
1:10 pm
for another twelve months if she loses she'll have to resign and cannot join the leadership race in the vote to replace if there are more than two contenders a secret vote will be held among tory m.p.'s the two remaining contenders will then face a postal ballot of all conservative party members whether takes charge of the party will become the next prime minister but won't necessarily have to face a general election john ashmore is the deputy editor of the british online news website cap ex he joins us now live from london john good to have you back here on al-jazeera would it be better for the country and better for brics it if she wins and wins big. well i heard that it's really up to debate it depends which part of the debate you're on for the heartbreaks it is it's the worst of all scenarios but either way i don't see a clear path at the moment for her to get her deal through parliament anyway so we're stuck in this very strange kind of impasse where the tears on the right of
1:11 pm
the conservative party want to get rid of theresa may but there's no real sign of a coherent plan on their side either and it's worth remembering in all this as well that let's say that a city or a lever does oust to reason may well their version of bricks is not necessarily going to appeal to the more program main wing of the conservative party so it's kind of like a parliamentary game of whack a mole you plug one gap and then another comes up and throughout all this also we've got to bear in mind the position of the the u.p.a. the northern irish party who are implacably opposed to stories amaze breck's it so i don't think even even if she comes through this vote intact i don't think it's necessarily bolsters her position all that much and on the numbers as you said in the lead in they need one hundred fifty eight to one seat to resume a but i think a sense among a lot of people is that if
1:12 pm
a very substantial number of tory m.p.'s vote against her that she might then resign anyway even if she has technically won the vote so you know all still very much up in the air i'm afraid ok say by nine or ten o'clock tonight she is political toast and then it goes to a leadership challenge that would have to be preceded today by somebody signalling that they are prepared to wield the knife given their personal popularity ratings across the country it's never going to be boris johnson it's never going to be michael gove but might it be somebody who by definition for the past two and a half years for the voters feel lettre in the u.k. has been part of the problem not part of the solution. but you know it's hard to say i mean there are there are a lot of possible names in the house i think half the cabinet have had their names raised at some point you know sajid javid the names you mentioned michael gove boris johnson possible i mean we saw what happened last time there was
1:13 pm
a tour of the ship contest with the who's two. but i think if she's unseated it doesn't really make sense for for whoever replaces to not be a threat satiric given that the whole reason for her being pushed out would have been to pursue a different kind of breck's it. but again i mean it's really not not clear at this stage who might be willing to put their name forward or even who commands the support of their colleagues. boris johnson is certainly popular among the party faithful. but not necessarily so popular among his parliamentary colleagues and remember in all this that in order for someone to be put to a kind of general the tory members they have to first get through the parliamentary hurdle so if m.p.'s kind of conspire to stop someone getting on the ballot then they might not ever get the chance to you know test their popularity among the
1:14 pm
membership so again it's just another of the sort of massive number of imponderable scenarios in this whole you know mess of a situation not wishing to get too high brow about this is this beginning or beginning to pivot into being something else is not just about bricks it is not just about to resume a given that some people on the rights of the governing conservative party is saying look don't roll over article fifty just freeze the process because constitutionally we can do that because government is broken the country is broken the country is divided is this tipping over into being almost like an existential debate or an argument about democracy because whoever british prime minister whoever that person becomes if it's not mrs may they come please the fifty two percent who voted for breaks it and they're never going to please the forty eight percent who voted for no breaks it. yeah i think that that's probably right to a degree i mean for the people who oppose to reason may's deal is also very much part
1:15 pm
of the calculation it's not just about you know the customs union terms of trade it's about an extra central threat to the united kingdom because of the states of northern ireland but also a complete destruction of faith in politicians willingness and ability to carry out the instructions of the electorate i think if they the other thing to mention is that if you know there might be willingness in our parliament to suspend article fifty but the debate in the u.k. tends to be quite parochial we don't talk that much about what's going on in europe and i don't see much willingness on the european side or patience to be frank to extend the process any further than it's already going i mean they from their point of view they put a lot of toil and swear and compromise into getting to this deal as john claudian said yesterday this is the only deal available from their point of view so i'm not sure they're going to want to extend things any more but yeah as you say i think
1:16 pm
you have a con becomes prime minister is going to face the same quite intractable problem of trying to reconcile two sides who become very polarized particularly not just among m.p.'s but in the in the country more widely so yeah i mean a huge challenge whoever that is even if it's to resume a still or whoever succeeds or john ashmore in london thank you very much. thank you plenty more still to come for you here on the news hour including looking for a way out palestinian refugees seeking new routes to leave desperate conditions in lebanon. time magazine picks its person of the year. on a group of journalists were on. hand of the sports news we n.b.a.'s best team so far this season sends out a message to the reigning champions ahead of their showdown in california. story in about thirty.
