2:00 am
year not least the more than two hundred people killed the thousands that have been injured has hamas won enough of a concession if this is the deal that is going to be announced i think most people will probably say yes given that hamas tends not to get much more than this even after a full scale war with israel and so there were i imagine there would be some relief at least that that this could bring some real benefits to the people who have been under an israeli blockade is not quite what hamas is a political leader ismail haniyeh was talking about earlier on friday an end to the blockade but it may well be enough the other political calculation of course has to come on the israeli side could benjamin netanyahu be put under more pressure for giving up too much to hamas just a few days after a rocket landed on a family home north of tel aviv again the israeli political electorate is relatively educated on this it may well be something of a benefit if you can keep things under a lid here at least for
2:01 am
a bit longer and certainly pass the election on the ninth of april harry thank you very much for that for now that is harry forms that are the nation's live and gaza thank you to algeria now where as many as one million people around across the country against the government for the sixth straight week but this was the sane only end to capture analogy as the protesters are demanding an overhaul of the entire political system they accuse politicians being corrupt and out of touch with the needs of the people then it smith has more. a sixth week of peaceful protests in algeria though so far no change in government but many algerians feel they've never been closer. to twenty years is enough so get out el geria has many candidates who are competent to take the job so why would the regime stifle them in their own country are you this there's a breath of fresh air algeria doesn't deserve this we deserve to live in peace you
2:02 am
know and i know that i'm here to confirm the people's demands they have to listen to us. earlier this week the army back to their calls for president abdelaziz bouteflika to step down. by the ruling party its coalition partner and i'll jarius biggest union have also now joined the calls for beautifully could to go but the eighty two year old remains in office even if he does go that won't be enough for the protesters and then. we want to move to a real democratic country for a transitional period and to set a new algerian government which will be elected by the people and not by this government we are against this government the the protesters want an overhaul of a powerful establishment that has been entrenched in power since algerian independence from france in one thousand nine hundred sixty and they want the resignation of the ruling elite but a subtle longside beautifully could for twenty years or anything like about to happen the powerful military would have to agree and it's very sensitive to signs
2:03 am
of instability that. everyone is waiting for the constitutional council to rule on beautifully because fitness for office based on health reasons it's given no indication when it will make a decision if it rules a president unfit for office parliament must endorse the decision by a two thirds majority even if that happens it will only just begin to all fill the demands of the hundreds of thousands of algerians who've spoken out in protest. bernard smith. the head of the arab league has rejected the u.s. decision to recognize israel's claim over the occupied golan heights. also called for political solutions to conflicts and syria libya and yemen made the comments of regional foreign ministers ahead of sunday's thirtieth arab league summit. the arabs refuse the occupation to be given names other than occupation nor the
2:04 am
occupation force to be given legitimacy we say it loud and clear the golan is an occupied arab syrian territory as per the international law and the un s.c. resolutions any unilateral declaration of sovereignty over the golan by any state is in conflict with this fact and will not change the true reality well earlier i spoke with al-jazeera senior political analyst and he says that they'll be a little action by the arab league of a many issues facing the middle east because it's unity is fractured the arab league has any regional or international organizations like the united nations like the european community or the european union union. when its members are committed to its charter when they are truly representative of their people and and truly loyal to this group and then the group it works the arab league's continues to fail because its member states continue to fail because out abrasions to day care only
2:05 am
about one thing their survival's they don't get about anything they don't care about most i mean most of the arab regimes cared about their survival they don't get it by their people's interest they don't care about the collective political and strategic work at the arab league headquarters in cairo there are some magnificent documents about joint defense about a road map to economic common market about cultural this and that and the other thing but none of them see the light why because there's so much division among the arabs so much weakness and of course so much chaos because of the way out of british eames have responded to popular uprisings in various countries still ahead on the saudi arabia freeze some female activists on what conditions would explain.
2:06 am
hello again it's good to have you back while we are watching what is happening here in the eastern part of the med very carefully because this is going to play out to be a very messy situation for many locations in the next coming days here on saturday heavy rain is going to be a big problem as well as winds we're talking turkey we're talking syria lebanon as well as jordan as we go towards sunday the area really begins to expand out here towards the east and i'm really going to be focusing on iran because early in the week we saw some deadly flooding there and we are expected to see more rain coming into play by the time we end the weekend well here in the gulf it is going to be the clouds in the heat for many locations and those temperatures are on the way up so here in doha we'll be seeing some cloudy conditions here on saturday sunday we expect to see a jump a temperature to thirty degrees riyadh at thirty three abu dhabi is going to be a thirty two and it is going to be clouds across much of the gulf scotto
2:07 am
a beautiful day for you at about twenty eight degrees and then across southern parts of africa things are not looking too bad most of that tropical moisture is making its way towards the north madagascar you're still seeing some heavy showers particular up here towards the north but over torture here is very it is going to be a fair day for you at twenty eight degrees durban at about twenty seven and capetown well clouds in your forecast and little bit cooler with a temperature of twenty one. join me. from around the world and. look at what's holding in the museum for becoming a true trillion dollar economy as the world's biggest democracy gets ready to vote . india mexico's government is axing social programs for the country's
2:08 am
poorest. zero. good to have you with. these are our top stories britain's parliament has rejected a slimmed down version of tories amaze. at the time they voted it down prompting european leaders to warn that the u.k. . with no agreement on a twelve. extra. ten. about a million algerians involving across the country against the government for the week these are live pictures from the capital is calling for the resignation of president. and an overhaul of the political system and the head of the
2:09 am
project of the decision to recognize israel's claim over the occupied golan heights . also called for political solutions to conflicts in syria libya and yemen. now u.s. president trump has threatened to shut the border with mexico he tweeted not long ago and part of it reads if mexico doesn't immediately stop all illegal immigration coming into the united states through our border i will be closing the border or large sections of the border next week that's go to our correspondent kimberly health and she's joining us with more on this live in washington d.c. he has said these kinds of things before company but not with a deadline what's behind this announcement. well you know the numbers may have something to do with it there certainly has been. in the number of undocumented migrants making their way to the u.s. border that connects with mexico that may have something to do with that department
2:10 am
of homeland security figures put those at a thirteen year high and this is an enormous cost to the united states when you look at some of the numbers in terms of sending those who are not allowed to stay in the united states back to their home countries and most of those who are headed here right now to the southern border from central america the figures for the last ten years or some one point are one hundred twenty billion dollars so there's an economic cost to the united states that may be one of the motivations but what many people here washing think may be the real motivation is to try and pressure mexico to do more to stop the central american migrants before they get to the southern border and as you pointed out presidents have before temporarily closed the border we saw george w. bush do this in two thousand and one after the september eleventh attacks ronald reagan did it nine hundred eighty five in order to try and get mexico to talk about a drug enforcement agent that had gone missing and he wasn't getting his questions
2:11 am
answered it is a tactic that can be effective and so perhaps this is the calculation that donald trump is taking into account but at the same time what he may not be taking in to account is the economic costs and is unlikely to be effective with this current mexican government can be given not just them but the government before them have rejected any. you know anything that trump has asked for in regards to the border. well there's no question that the relationship has always been one of convenience but not always the most friendly of relationships especially since donald trump has come into office but the economics are the real driver on both sides and the economic relationship in terms of the goods and services that crosses the southern border is significant one point seven billion in goods and services crossing back and forth hundreds of thousands of people mexicans and americans crossing back before and forth legally every day some people live in one country work in the
2:12 am
other there's impacts on trade travel work so in terms of donald trump trying to do this he would certainly have some pushback from the u.s. congress at the same time there may be precedent for the president to do this and much like we saw with the border wall as the declaring of the national emergency donald trump could do this he could get challenged in congress potentially in the courts and then ultimately prevail so certainly he recognizes perhaps there will be challenges there are also big questions about the forstmann and whether or not the president has the legal authority to use the military to try and keep that border close these are all questions that will have to be investigated as we watch very carefully whether donald trump follows through on this threat committee thank you very much for breaking all of that down for us that is committee health at live in washington d.c. thank you now president trump is held his first campaign style rallies since an investigation found no evidence of collusion between his twenty sixteen

vendors hawk trump merchandise made in china and bangladesh come here today after seeing that this president has done this makes me feel good to be able to be a part of it trump supporters here said the muller russia investigation was a waste of time and money and i think it isn't fair to the country while we are you know fixated on that instead of you know when you get things done with our taxpayer money is being wasted and. faults agenda from the left a few blocks away a smaller group of anti drug demonstrators inflated a giant balloon depicting the president as a big angry baby karen dunham organized the rally with the help of friends and social media i needed to illustrate to everyone who would look at this on social media and broadcast media that there's another side to grand rapids besides adoring throng set the arena trump touched on many topics he also spent time reminiscing
2:15 am
about his electoral college victory in twenty sixteen but with the twenty twenty campaign already in full swing a new michigan poll spells trouble for trauma in that poll nearly half of michigan voters surveyed said they were determined not to vote for trump in the next election with only thirty one percent saying they were definitely going to support him. but of course a lot can happen between now and november third twenty one leverage it's just around graphics risk. to bangladesh now where the house of ministers is the owner of a building where at least nineteen people died in a fire on thursday will be prosecuted more than one hundred people were rescued from the tower block in the capital dhaka many were injured and ministry officials code will also face an investigation. now pope francis has elected a new law to protect children from sex abuse the law applies to vatican personnel

2:21 am
are the headlines on inside story that's coming up next thank you for watching. a year of protests more than two hundred fifty people killed and twenty nine thousand injured the people of gaza have been demonstrating near the israeli border demanding their rights but have they achieved their goal this is inside story.
2:22 am
hello and welcome to the program pollen march thirtieth marks a year since mass demonstrations began at the fence that separates gaza from israel and since then on friday afternoon prayers have been followed by demonstrations by hundreds of palestinians they are demanding their right to return to their homes and the land their families were expelled from seventy years ago israeli soldiers have responded by firing live ammunition and gaza's health ministry says the now killed more than two hundred fifty people and injured thousands of those hurt the united nations says more than one hundred twenty people have had one or both legs amputated and un investigators say israel has committed war crimes all this at a time of heightened tensions in the region so what is the way forward well there is plenty to discuss with our guest but first harry fawcett sets us up with this report. has been involved in the weekly border protest since the beginning
2:23 am
his right leg had to be amputated after he was shot by an israeli sniper last april as soon as he was able he started going back again every week but this weekend's first anniversary he says is different. i'm not going anywhere why should i go on saturday there are going to be a lot of people killed tensions have risen again this week after a rocket fired from gaza hit a family home north of tel aviv injuring seven israeli airstrikes the follow destroyed the offices of hamas as political leader among dozens of targets israel has built up ground forces on the gaza border threatening further military action this is all israeli should know that if a comprehensive campaign is required we were entered strongly and after we have exhausted all of the other options those options center on egyptian mediation towards a deal understood to involve calm on the border and an end to rocket fire in exchange for an easing of israeli economic restrictions in the expansion of the un job
2:24 am
program seeds over the tension and conflict in the still still existed in gaza unless the bigger problem for gaza which is a political in the completion and in the way the seed i expect that there will be more rounds of confrontation the great march return protests began on the thirtieth of march last year after a call to action against the israeli siege by civil society groups in gaza since then gaza's health ministry says israeli snipers have shot and injured more than six and a half thousand protesters killing more than two hundred fifty people children journalists and medical workers among them a un investigation found that while some protesters used violence the vast majority were unarmed and peaceful it stated that israel had no justification for using live bullets and they were reasonable grounds to believe it had committed serious violations of human rights for twelve months now the protests in these border areas have been an expression of the sheer desperation felt so widely in gaza but increasingly in evidence has also been how masses ability to dial them up and dial
2:25 am
them down now with the israeli army staging a major show of force on the other side of this fence gaza's ruling faction has to decide how to calibrate this weekend's events in order to get what they most want major concessions out of israel and hamas is under pressure. to get results earlier this month protesters went to the streets instead of the border over price rises and tax hikes from a security put the demonstrations down with beatings and arrests but the core of those protests the same feelings of despair and frustration that for a year now and despite all the risks that brought thousands to the border week after week harry fawcett out zero for inside story gaza. we can now bring in our guests from gaza city are abu sada professor of political science at al azhar university in gaza and from west jerusalem we have mitchell barak c.e.o. of kievan global research and he was advisor to the former israeli president shimon
2:26 am
peres and speechwriter for the ex prime minister ariel sharon and from haifa israel by skype he jazzy is the deputy regional director covering the middle east and north africa region for amnesty international thank you all very much for joining us now i'm going to get straight to it and let's start in gaza in gaza with more. firstly as words talking about these anniversary as the anniversary of the protests is coming up what's your expectation for it do you expect that there will be a large turnout will see the kind of momentum that has been building up. well let me start by saying that the palestinian factions mainly hamas and islamic jihad and other palestinian factions have been preparing for this first anniversary of the gaza are big mush of return and breaking the siege for many days now and it is expected to be a big turnout tomorrow another question without there would be violence or there
2:27 am
would be defend injuries tomorrow or not it would be seen but my it my understanding is that the egyptian security delegation who have been shuttling between tel aviv and gaza for the past forty eight hours are trying to defuse any further violence between gaza and israel along the border tomorrow but my estimation is that there will be tens of thousands of palestinians committing the first anniversary of the get most of it in and also its course sided with land they had in palestine. but i believe that there are at the house on the security services which belong to hamas they will try to destroy a in palestinian protesters from approaching the separation fence between gaza and israel and try to minimize the number of casualties on the palestinian side but it also depends on the behavior this way the snipers and its way to soldiers who over
2:28 am
the past year have killed more than two hundred and sixty palestinians and injured thousands of palestinians over the past year i meant to back i have seen you not to over there i am what is your expectation and what is the expectation from the israeli side as we come up to this big day. well i'm sure it'll be a successful turnout because as he says a hamas and islamic jihad two terror organizations bent on the destruction of israel have arrested hundreds of buses and there are thirty eight different locations throughout the gaza strip and they're going to be bussing people to five different locations on the border so i'm sure it's going to be a very big turnout but my question is are you going to let kids on the bus is this going to be where you put kids in the front line like you did all last year and all last summer we're going to push them up to the front lines and tell them to go rush the fence i think you have to have some responsibility here and understand that rushing a fence and trying to break through a border or releasing flaming kites or putting kids in the frontline or launching
2:29 am
missiles even by accident which you say you do is not going to go on the israeli side israel will be there with massive force to protect its border and to make sure that nobody comes through and that cuts aren't launched and that's been the problem in the last year is that israel has had to respond to all these new kinds of threats over the border and that's where it stands on the israeli side israel is not looking for alter cation is not looking for a fight is not looking to use force especially now right before the election so let's see how the other side behaves but if you're bussing people in then you've got to control those people again brought up so many points we need to talk about that but first let's go over to high five and one let's let's stay with us line of responsibility misty has been documenting the past year of protest tell us about the findings off your latest report which i believe you are an author to and the
2:30 am
main message that comes out if it. says you so you've been monitoring what you meant to punish and the potential to put this you know exactly. this will so it's been done by whom going to those issues c.n.n. has really and we've also been. u.n. commission of inquiry report published in a couple of weeks ago in the human rights council what we found is that israeli forces have been using a lot of. lethal force excessive force against and see them streets on the fence this which has led to a lawful killings many of which amount to work crimes there's also we've. documented the pattern of the use of force as the lead to severe injury like changing injury of of protesters and that's what's as pointed to what seems like
2:31 am
a policy meaning and causing the severe injuries to the protesters targeting has also included medics journalists and children according to the un office of the commission of human ten affairs in the uk quite honestly the territories or chop one hundred ninety five cities have been killed in the contessa put us. in this one year span including forty one children and there's been more than twenty nine thousand injuries according to the commission if we were to put. to get it over underneath achilles. as well as injuries and in the report they expose one hundred twenty two injuries. and it was life changing injuries where people have lost their lives these include twenty one children so this is a very dangerous part and we are extremely worried that was going to happen tomorrow israel has an obligation to refrain from using excessive force and this is
2:32 am
. it in terms of law it's a policing of them stretches it's not it's not active hostilities and therefore israel should as also the occupying out have the safety of the people to stop can. we'll go through some of those points you talked about in detail but first let me go back to my first one of the themes of this program is what has been achieved by these protests and to put it bluntly as we're hearing those numbers aside from more injuries aggression from israel deaths what have these protests actually achieved for the palestinian people. but a please if you couldn't let me just to respond to what was mentioned by mitchell about iraq from jerusalem before i answer your question it seems to me that mr about iraq is ignoring the fact that israel is occupying palestinian land for more than half a century now and also israel is besieging the gazans to and enforcing looked at
2:33 am
punishment on two million palestinians in gaza women live conditions have deteriorated to our very low level and let me also alert you against mr but i doubt it's his way to snipers and his way to soldiers who have killed hundreds of palestinians and ended thousands of palestinians not all of them approached the fence some of those yes some of those who were killed and injured were approaching and were tried to infiltrate the fence but as it was documented by amnesty international there were many palestinian civilians a journalist a part a mother and civilians children who were shot and killed and there were very far away from the separation fence between gaza and israel anyway going back to the question what has been achieved over the past year i yes the palestinians have paired up that is the prize in terms of the sacrifices that they have faded but i believe that the mother get most of it in
2:34 am
a bed in the siege have made palestine on the siege over gaza again since that is stage on regional and international politics and second as a result of this monster britain israel has agreed finally to ease and livy it it's the jump likud again is gaza by are now in qatar the money into gaza to. took to the power station and to employ thousands of palestinians and also is when i get aid to our now more exports from gaza into the west bank and israel and we are hoping that is when we'll come back to its mind and put an end to it see jump blockade against two million palestinians in gaza. barak i'm going to let you respond to some off at mr abu sada comments directed at you would you like to tell us what you think. you know i don't i don't even know where to begin meaning you know we're ten minutes into the program and neither the gentleman from them this to
2:35 am
or from gaza mentions that thousands of rockets have been fired into israel that hundreds of kites with four flammable liquid has been launched into israel burning fields terrorizing civilians nobody mentioned it it sounds like the march on washington of martin luther king just peaceful protesters at the border some are too close some are maybe too far some are only burning tires you know israel acted you know aggressively first of all every single one of these deaths every single one of these casualties and every single one of the thousands of people injured which is terrible many of them with life changing injury it all could have been avoided it all didn't have to happen israel didn't ask to come in protest and do violent protests israel didn't ask and push teenagers to charge the fence journalists i think there were some cases of journalists that are also members of terror organizations israel didn't ask for this israel warned the palestinian
2:36 am
population in gaza there is a real humanitarian crisis but maybe you should look at the people that are stealing the humanitarian aid and using it to build tunnels and using it to buy themselves things and using it for terror purposes and not for. to help the people and it's a you know prime minister that you know is under terrible terrible criticism because he's allowing qatar to come in and to give money so that the whole place doesn't collapse this real humanitarian issues there there's no clean drinking water in gaza there are children that don't have food that should be addressed by the palestinian leadership not the march of gaza not talking about our keep. haitian not talking about a siege because every time israel lets in thousands of tons of concrete the concrete doesn't go to build schools and hospitals the concrete goes to build tunnels in order to attack israel and that's unfortunate because the people of gaza those two million people they deserve better leadership they deserve
2:37 am
a leadership that is not a terrorist organization they deserve to live peacefully side by side with israel just like israel israelis deserve to live peacefully side by side with gazans and with that kind of leadership you're not going to get anywhere and that kind of rhetoric you're not going to get anywhere so pushing people to the limit tomorrow not going to be a good thing that it does he so given what we've heard from both sides. what do you think these protests have achieved if anything at all. when they raised the gazans voice. very hard in protest of the conditions which israel we haven't suffered unfortunate that we have to remind. now that israel is the occupying power it has been imposing it more than twelve years now on olof and blockade on the gaza strip that amounts to collective punishment this is the prime reason for the protests people are protesting against these conditions they want the blockade to
2:38 am
be lifted they were rightly want their rights to be respected and protected and just a point here that people in gaza have agency and then shown that not only protesting against israeli policies and israeli occupation and that for a year a lawful blockade but they've also shown that they they protest policies by hamas the five to government in gaza people are rejecting the conditions which are imposed on them and i think. now the people around the world. governments as long as these as well as scientists i have heard the message you know it's our responsibility to take an action and again i remind of the commission of inquiry report it was a detail in the situation unfortunately israel prevented the members of the investigators from the commission of inquiry to enter israel or gaza to carry out investigations and lie but they were able to to do it regardless they came to
2:39 am
conclusions they have recommendations including recommendations for international justice and i think now actually it's past time now that international justice. takes a lot of takes role here as as for amnesty we're also at equal to impose an arms embargo on israel until it basically abides by its international commitments and commitment the commitments to human rights and stops these by dishes against people that they occupy. now i want to go back to a point that mitchell barak made mr abu said that who is in charge in gaza now and do people i mean the i think the media answer would be hamas but do people trust them given that they have suppressed demonstrations themselves criticizing them quite aggressively so who is in charge and if these protests do actually result result in some kind of a result who's going to be leading the people there were the short also to question
2:40 am
is who is in charge and girls are the outside is how us hamas has been in charge of girls of with a post that will views in spite of the fact that there is something we called the palestinians consensus government but it has been absent from the gaza strip for more than a year no. since the attempted assassination on them but my point is that there were more protests against hamas and criticizing hamas and hamas crackdown on those protesters which takes away some their legitimacy in pointing the fingers across the border do people still feel that they are equipped to leave them. without that what i was just going to say are the palestinians in gaza hold israel responsible for their suffering they hold the palestinian authority who have imposed a punitive measures for more than two years on the two million palestinian also in gaza responsible and also how muscle is the de facto government in gaza is
2:41 am
responsible for the deterioration of the living conditions and that's why the two weeks ago hundreds of thousands of palestinians a protest is and in the middle of the streets of gaza again as hard as this put this to the ghettos the living conditions of the slogan was we wanted to know if we wanted to live a dignified life but unfortunately hamas does in a value brutal way it doesn't it security forces do it in a very brutal way again is that austin and brooke this those of us thing on deserve them and beaten also hundreds of them which was which give a very negative image of how the us and its security forces in the gaza strip so here you go you have the palestinian people in a very very tight spot their leadership also aggression against them across the border they're having you know there's conflict there too what happens to to the people of gaza adam and then if i can bring you in mr mitchell barak have these
2:42 am
protests changed in any way the way israel would deal with the people of gaza are perhaps change their approach and give some kind of concession. again this and there's no i mean i think prime minister netanyahu has been very fair in trying to make sure the place doesn't collapse from a humanitarian aspect you know you may mention early in the program i worked i wrote speeches for prime minister ariel sharon so we're going back what is it fifteen years when he first announced his disengagement plan from gaza so you want to talk about occupation let's talk about gaza there were israeli settlements in gaza there were israeli cemetery there was a cemetery in gaza and sharon said i'm going to get out every israeli presence every israeli settlement settler there and we're going to leave and hopefully the people of gaza and the leadership of gaza will take it as an opportunity and they'll turn it into universities and hospitals and high tech centers and they will

forty four. the breaks it breaks through the pritish prime minister had staked her political career on has been defeated the country remains in confusion for the speaker i think it should be a matter of profound regret to every member of this house that once again we have been unable to support leaving the european. the implications of the house's decision. britain has only two weeks to find an alternative way forward otherwise it will crash out of the e.u. without a deal without a plan. jericho over the opposition labor leader said the defeat pave the way for a general election but the speaker of the house has been clear this deal now has to change the has to be an alternative found and if the prime minister card to accept that then she must go not at an indeterminate date in the future but now so that we can decide the future of this country through
2:52 am
a general election treason may have promised to resign if a deal was passed but the gamble failed to win support from northern ireland's democratic unionist party the manes government remember this breaks it breaks it and this thing we're very clear we will be leaving the e.u. on the twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen is eleven pm what. the regional deadline is hugely symbolic for the prime minister and for seventeen million people who voted for breaks it. to leave the european union all referring. to bracks that is they've gathered outside parliament on the day in which the u.k. was to be leaving the house where is that money right. out of the division inside parliament was echoed on the streets around it the country's up with itself. so how can britain move forward from here but it may have missed the opportunity for an orderly exit or may the twenty second but to resume

a could still give her deal another go possibly even next week meanwhile in pisa hunting for a majority for an alternative to teresa mayes plan they fail to rally around a single idea so far they'll try again on monday a second referendum a general election another breaks an extension anything now seems possible but british politics remains powerline used the. westminster. we'll get the latest from in fashion in brussels in just a moment first though to paul brennan who is outside the british parliament and pull third time unlucky for british prime minister to resign a bit does this mean she will give up on the dale. rouse she tried and she tried and she tried again and she has failed and as you can hear from the protests over my shoulder there's a lot of anger about bret's it not being delivered by the parliament terence in the building behind me these are several thousand progress it's protests and marches
2:54 am
and problems square today at the climax of a march and several other rallies which have been taking place now to talk about serious amazed chance it was likely next through rob i'm joined by guests to be annoyed as he's from vocal europe it's a think tank which advocates decision making based on good evidence now what do you think of the decision making that we've had in palm at the last two weeks while i think that's all decision making in parliament this week has just been it's hardly cynical that you have labor looking for nothing more than a general election so it's reason why you have to resume a state on a straight line refusing to budge you know he agin to do you keep refusing to do anything that's he's going to release or compromise at some time or even a resolution and everything is just spiralling out of control of much of this may have been some stray. examples the anger of the russians and the prospects now looking ahead to next week. more indicative votes on monday perhaps the on
2:55 am
wednesday as well and there are rumors that theresa may may actually try to bring her a deal back on friday for a kind of a runoff between her deal and whatever emerges from the indicative votes discussion but you i've spoken sort of your earlier skeptical on here i am i mean sadly my prognosis for the situation right now is that we may very well in the most likely case be heading for no deal breakers it's i mean look at what happened on thursday last night there was no majority for anything if they bring it back front of the deal on monday it's likely to be executive same thing brussels right now is reconsidering its options and looking towards a an emergency summit of the time from april for possible exit dates in the twelfth of april and there is nothing in place that's in the case that there is going to be a resolution found for any circumstances whatsoever him so what it may be relying on now is brussels charity almost so gets the u.k.

out of the bind of its own making through thirty years that forty years of negligence. with no deal there is no transition periods no alternative arrangements no nothing and as a french citizen living here in the u.k. seeing these scenes here seeing what's happening in palm how does that make you feel i mean i am it's it's a strange feeling i mean i'm i'm a french citizen who was raised u.k. so i thought i knew the u.k. pretty well i thought moan run ins with xenophobia rallies in examples of friends outright racism i have a whole things would get this why i'm seeing french flags flown along with the banners of course those mourning the banners across all of these organizations the whole intense purposes of the phobic and i never thought i would see the day when. u.k. we do know it's be implementing the process very pretty very well destroy the union and its position in the. global. jihad thank you for joining us i just finishing on
2:57 am
that mention of the union which intrigue it nigel dogs of the do you think this small part of the props up to recently is minority government has actually said on the stand in the last couple of hours that he would prefer to remain in the e.u. than accept anything that might threaten the union that's a statement really put the cuts amongst the pigeons as far as the direction of travel for the government will hopefully hear more about that in the coming hours but for the meantime back to you thanks very much that is the reaction from westminster with a full grown and let's now head to brussels because the european council president says the e.u. leaders will now meet on april tenth to discuss a possible way forward for more on this joins us live now so a special summit has been triggered for april tenth this is two days before the new brics it date of april twelfth what is the likeliest outcome of that summit.
2:58 am
i think that would be extremely hard to predict to quote. toss the you council president is saying is that on april tenth you can have this special summit of leaders invited to this summit will be the british prime minister to resign may and before that date of april tenth she is going to have to come up with some sort of plan as to what person wants to do if she doesn't if there is no plan before that date then on april twelfth we could see a person leaving the european union with a no deal snorri with no deal now that is something that e.u. leaders have been very clear that they want to avoid they would like they say and alter the withdrawal of person from the european union but of course so far as the days go by that seems to be harder and harder and there's a great sense of frustration in fact the german foreign minister tweeted earlier put out a statement earlier. saying that this frustration is just really wearing many e.u. officials down so in terms of what happens next i mean really it's anyone's guess
2:59 am
there is no doubt though. across the european union leader officials really want this process to be resolved i must just add though that there is of course one option that is increasingly being talked about and that is the option of perhaps giving a person a really long extension of article fifty in order to try and sort out what it wants to do in a way some free things space and that is something that toss the council president has certainly been a strong proponent of doing as you say there is a sense of frustration there in brussels with the constitutional chaos that is unfolding here in the u.k. does it look as though they are likely to go wrong person a longer extension. was hard to say because although you have leaders like the you counsel present don't say that maybe
3:00 am
a longer extension is simply going to be the best way forward it gives the case a breathing space it gives the u.k. some time to come up with perhaps some new ideas behind the second referendum perhaps new elections you know thought it's going to offer a possible break in this i'm pos and allow more time for the u.k. to sort itself out instead of trying to rush it if you will if you want to see it that way but there are all the leaders within the european union who are simply getting quite fragile who sort of say look this process needs to end at some point european union has other business to get on with no the french president was very against a long extension but of course that could all change that that e.u. summit it depends whether or not to resume a comes to that summit with anything new to offer something the european leaders feel might be worth pursuing and might save europe a from a new deal situation.
