3:50 am
a vote on whether to hold more indicative votes of where to go with breaks it ended in a rare time so the speaker said he was following protocol in voting against it came as jeremy corbett and his team held urgent talks with prime minister to resign may the leader of the labor opposition went into the meeting with some in his own party demanding he seek a referendum on any brics it plan emerging. well this is. the prime minister's move to consult corbin after effectively giving up trying to convince her own hardline brick city is tobacco deal junior minister nigel adams to quit his post on wednesday. in his resignation letter here queues to resume a of quote trying to do a deal with a marxist but the prime minister suggested it was parliament's failure to pass her withdrawal agreement that forced her into this position and insisted her strategy could work but the purpose of meeting with the leader of the opposition today is indeed to look at those areas that we can we agree and i think there are actually
3:51 am
a number of areas that we agree on in relation to that that i think we both want to deliver leaving the you with a deal i think we both want we both want to protect jobs i think we both want to ensure that we end free movement i think we both recognize the importance of the withdrawal agreement but for brussels every day makes a no deal breaks it a bit more likely speaking in the european parliament with perhaps the last ever british present the commission president was unequivocal dues of twelve april is the final date for possible approval if the house of commons does not adopt a stance before the date no short term extension will be possible after the twelfth of april we run the risk of jeopardizing the correct running of the european elections and the correct functioning of the european union. there could be no transition period following an exit the u.k. would immediately become what we call a third country with all the restrictions that brings you. when you're there would indeed be customs checks the legal and political reasons we have to be honest here

3:53 am
hundred twenty two for its committee for example that's a committee of backbench conservative m.p.'s met to discuss a kind of indicative vote on teresa mayes leadership and it appears that she is not very popular at all the anecdotal evidence is that some two thirds would have voted no confidence in the prime minister if they'd had the chance they don't thankfully for the prime minister and the labor party as well is. in turmoil jeremy corbin's decision to speak so closely with the prime minister and specifically about the people's vote there are many in the party including all the way up to the shadow foreign secretary thornberry who wants a people's votes to be front and center if you like of whatever jeremy called and negotiates with the prime minister jeremy goban after he'd spoken with theresa may did say that the talks have been constructive but there was a slight hint of caution when he said that she had not been she had not shown as
3:54 am
much change as he had expected in her approach and what's the latest on parliament's attempt to prevent no deal. well uproar frankly i mean separate to those efforts between the two leaders parliament itself is continuing to try to avert the prospect of no deal and this is a process that began a week ago with m.p.'s take seizing control of parliamentary at the parliamentary timetable trying to railroad through a whole legislative bill in one single day now so far it's passed two stages they've just about scraped it through five votes was the last majority that they got there's been uproar in the past hour because there's been a whole raft of amendments tabled to. it's fifteen pages and then the prince approach so all kinds of shenanigans as to we haven't got the full number of sheets etc etc it is progressing it's going to be a tight run thing but it's an indication of just how tumultuous the houses of
3:55 am
parliament are at the moment that the m.p.'s are trying to force this through to tar the prime minister sounds of prevents a no deal happening almost by default and then again is indeed science for action for britain thank you. i mean well britain's military says it's investigating some of its soldiers after they used an image of the opposition labor leader as target practice in footage posted online members of the parachute regiment in afghanistan could be seen shooting at an image of jeremy called bit of a body to has previously been critical of foreign intervention by the u.k. military and army official says the video shows a serious error of judgment that falls below what's expected of british soldiers. ontario's abdulaziz but if you care has issued a statement asking for forgiveness for any shortcomings the eighty two year old resigned from the presidency on tuesday after widespread protests calling for an
3:56 am
end to his twenty year rule the country is now in the hands of a caretaker government with elections due in the next ninety days but matheson has more. hours after president other lizzie's blew through flicker had his twenty years in power ended the search for g.e. his new leader has begun the constitution says this man how does. the speaker of the parliament is eligible to be caretaker president for up to ninety days during which an election for a new president is expected some critics say the people won't accept him and sell it as a temple related because he's a long time beautifully ally the slogans were very clear they were calling. war of the departure of as well so don't want the transition to be led by any member who was close to the plan and.
3:57 am
so i don't think that they will be acceptable. protests turned to celebrations at the news of little flickers resignation weeks of demonstrations as well as growing pressure on him to step down from the head of the army and other commanders who once supported him forced the eighty two year old to reverses an announcement to stand for the fifth time as president in a statement attributed to put a flicker on wednesday he asks algerians for forgiveness he says he's human and he makes mistakes but of late has made few public appearances since suffering a stroke six years ago his critics say he's been a front man for military and business leaders who really run the country protesters are demanding they also need to go in a clean sweep among the ruling elite but some say the power and influence of algeria is military is unlikely to change i think of the new system in a sense that i think the army is one of the people's constitutional institutions
3:58 am
that is widely accepted by the algerians the role of the army now is to take the side of the people for a smooth transition of power in algeria. some aldouri and celebrated all night not just in the capital our genes but in other cities too in the light of day they'll be wondering how many of the now former president's allies will remain in power matheson. nato is actually general has warned the us congress about what he calls a more assertive threat from russia and stoltenberg addressed politicians at capitol hill to mark the seventieth anniversary of the security alliance is that nature does not want to new cold war but added that its partners must not be naive about relations with moscow or diplomatic as to james bays is live from washington d.c. so strong message there james about russia from stauffenberg. a strong message to members of congress both houses gather for a joint meeting the first time the head of an international body has a jest
3:59 am
a joint meeting here and there was a standing ovation for stoltenberg for nato for seventy years of nato an organization that was that founded to counter the threat coming from moscow he said there's still a threat coming from moscow and increased threats of course the person who by convention doesn't come to these sort of meetings was not in the room yes vice president pence was in the room but president truck was not the president trump has repeatedly questioned whether there's a big threat from russia and has behind the scenes question whether the u.s. should even be a member of nato so the president not really on quite the same page as everyone else here at a time of some tension for the alliance for example there is italy signing up to china's belton road an issue that has certainly ruffled some feathers and there's the ongoing tension over the fact that turkey looks like it's going with
4:00 am
a missile defense system coming from russia rather than by the u.s. patriots system these are problems i think from a toe and i put these two issues to the you know to the secretary general of nato. i'm not denying that there are tensions on the there are disagreements on a wide range of different issues trade climate change and the g. eight and also all the issues but we have seen differences in between nato allies before back to the soon as crisis in physics to the iraq war in two thousand and three which. strongly supported somalia as a strong were against. the war but despite this differences while there were honored from history it is that nato has always been able to overcome them and stand together and unite around the record tosca that is to protect and defend that's all that and i'm.
