a ferry sinks in the fast moving water as a for iraq's tigris river. the president. has just made history strong praise from benjamin netanyahu after donald trump declares it's time to acknowledge is really sovereignty over the occupied golan heights. hello e.u. leaders have agreed to offer the u.k. two options to delay breck's it which is supposed to happen in seven days time but it all depends on what happens in the u.k. parliament next week so if prime minister to resume a can get politicians to approve her deal the new departure date will be made to twenty seconds but if they reject it again breaks it will only put be pushed back to april the twelfth or in sleep has more from brussels. it is supposed to be about taking control than what's happened at this summit was nothing short of
8:50 am
a humiliation but the reason she turned up assuming the european union. extension plan. the language of everyone else was more or less the same ok a short extension they said with a sigh but only if you get your deal past the most threatening language had been coming from the french who would threaten to veto any delay such was their frustration but their president also warns that this was the last chance he didn't just. talk if there is to be an extension he can only be a technical one we cannot has a long lasting situation where there is no visibility no path and no political maturity the mess be a deep political change for there to be anything else other than a technical extension. but when make gave her pitch it all went wrong sure a few was to tell the other leaders what she would do if a plan fails yet again so she was ushered from the room in the e.u.
8:51 am
started to change its plans there's a fairly even split between those who believe that if her deal collapses next week for the final time to reason they will simply throw caution to the wind and announce that the u.k. is leaving the european union with no deal of soul and others who think that is simply so inconceivable that she must have some sort of alternative arrangements e.u. leaders asked straight out at this meeting if she had a plan b. and as usual she refused to answer. the e.u. assumes she will lose her votes again not least because in her address to the british people she managed to blame parliament for not agreeing with her infuriating the very politicians whose support she needs. it all meant by midnight they were heading home with a new plan if the deal passes the u.k. leaves in may if not brecht's if they moved from next friday to april the twelfth that gives parliament more toy to get the prime minister out of the way and find
8:52 am
a new plan that would lead to the u.k. staying in the e.u. for the rest of the year what this means in practice if done to date all options remain open. and the kloof date will be delayed the u.k. government will still have a choice of a deal how do you a long extension of revoking article fifty. of a prude is the key date in terms of the u.k. deciding whether to hold utopian parliament elections. if it decided to do for. the option of a longer extension will automatically become impossible. if parliament does not agree a deal next week the new council would extend article fifty until the twelfth of april this point we would either leave with no deal or put forward an alternative
8:53 am
plan if this involves a further extension it would mean participation in the european parliamentary elections as i've said previously i believe strongly that it would be wrong to ask people in the u.k. to participate in these elections three years after voting to leave the e.u. . nobody needs reminding that no deal would mean a land border crossing on and into jeopardizing years of peace backlogs for essential goods going in and out of the u.k. economic and social instability inside the european union what happened here was that the e.u. gave the british parliament more time to stop people from happening and the prime minister could be on her way out. and lawrence leigh is joining us from brussels and you ended that report on the prime minister laurence you touched upon this a little bit but how much of the says the humiliation for in a defeat. well it's it's i mean pretty
8:54 am
high tech terrible frankly a thing i think you could probably form an argument that the the european union has thrown everybody a lifeline in doing this treason make a man saying please can i have an extension is too much i just lay ssion subparts between now and next friday if my deal passes so give me a few more weeks as a technical thing to get all that through and they've eventually said yeah ok fine but the fact of the matter is as i said in that report they don't think the deal is going to get through because it just keeps losing by by so much it's got too many opponents on all sides and when they kept saying in the meeting itself in the in what are you going to do if you keep losing the deal she kept refusing to answer and the great fear inside the european union and remember is trying to defend an island primarily because that's the border with the u.k. is if they honestly believe that if she keeps losing she's just got it in
8:55 am
a head that she would just walk the u.k. ounce of the european union next friday with no deal atoll and that would be catastrophic oil and as a member states of the european union and so because she couldn't give him a straight answer wouldn't they have effectively just sidelined her and said ok you're extension fine whatever go ahead but you will not leaving on any terms on march twenty ninth we're going to move that date until the day you have to decide when you can go on on going to participate in the european elections april the eleventh said parliament's now going sylvaine three weeks to come up with an alternative proposition and if in a series of votes that they can prove there's a majority for something else a much softer bricks it probably fan she'll have to step out of the way and some new configuration would be found where whoever leads that process would come back to the european union and say look this deal does have a majority has doesn't but this does so we will party. the european elections give
8:56 am
us some very much longer extension and we can start the process all over again it doesn't mean that no deals ruled out but the immediate fear of crashing out next friday has now gone into reason may's gotta go back to parliament and explain this and that's where the humiliation is she came is saying i never wanted this extension at all she's now got to go back and say. got to have my extension but moves and the knives are out left right and sense of for now inside the british parliament and this thing that's happened tonight could be the beginning of the end i think it's a reason and for the european council how satisfied do you think the countries and members are with what's transpired when you were listening to a press conference given by donald tusk. yeah well i mean there were certainly divisions you know there were some countries
8:57 am
that were much more prepared to give a long extension because they're the ones particularly the i think that are close to the u.k. and the netherlands these are the countries most terrified of no deal the ones that were much harsher said in the report countries like france where threatens a veto of the entire process and so lead to a source of a splits inside the twenty seven but eventually as they always do they go around and they compromised primarily in the interests of defending oil and because what they would they have always said they would never do is throw on an under the bus and if no deal happens for all the glib promises of the people who like the hard to say will be fine we won't need a border you know you can join the world trade organization without having a border but if you have a border it jeopardizes the peace process it is completely incompatible and so in the end they have to coalesce around the position that defended on and it doesn't mean that no deal is off the table completely because they have so little trust in sarees in may and what she has up
8:58 am
a sleeve but what it does do is empath the british parliament if only for a short periods to try to take power away from her and come up with something else and that does appear now to me very much to be the direction of things are heading in back in london all right lawrence leith. vigils are being held across new zealand to mark one week since a gunman attacked two mosques killing fifty people since then the country's been united in grief coming together to remember the victims and offer support to the muslim community so the call to prayer is due to play out on national radio and television shortly and then two minute silence will be observed and thousands of people are expected to gather in christ church opposite the eluded mosque where most of the victims were killed right there others will pray just a short drive away at the lynwood mosque where the second attack happens. are still being held for the victims which included people from afghanistan syria pakistan

9:00 am
the lots was happening in the country that's including all the mosques that it's the the they have a lot of. traffic that there's a lot of people coming in and supporting the communities they just want to make sure that we are ok and they are offering all sort of supports and they're not in one day that week other people from all different faiths they come in for a day offering all the sort of help so i was well to us. a feeling what we have at the moment is excellent that at least we passed through that stage today is the day that with their friends will take place. in christ church and after that we have to have a plan for moving forward how we want to make sure that this sort of thing will not happen again and also will make our relations better with our communities having said that the relation from last week on till now.
