12:00 am
you however the context of breaks it is what makes this so unusual and so kind of questionable i think people who are saying it's got nothing to do with trying to squeeze the time for m.p.'s to have have their way of blocking no deal that idea is i'm afraid for the birds clothing that's precisely what is what's happening here and i think from the m.p.'s perspective you know they're not thoughtless or blameless in this so they've had 3 years to come up with a solution and vote for something that they've consistently voted against something so now there's a sense of panic with only weeks to go that and he's you know i'm afraid as they are running around like headless chickens trying to block no deal where actually they've had chances before to avoid being in this situation and i think everyone is trying to become the kind of savior or champion of democracy but the problem is in the calculation within government circles is that the government's
12:01 am
messaging and the government's plan is now very tightly controlled it's do or die we're leaving at the end of october deal or no deal the people on the other side of the argument most of these are the m.p.'s do not have that same level of discipline some of them want no breaks or together some of them want a referendum and some of them want a breaks it but they just want to avoid no deal so they're starting point is completely different i think number 10 and the government have seen this and thought i actually this is there already so divided this is a way to completely pull the rug from underneath their feet and just to carry on with the plan that we want and so paranoid having that kind of parliamentary scrutiny. that will certainly cause issues for them and for their plans came out saying thank you so much for joining us from london we appreciate that. yemen has recognized government has mostly reclaim control of the southern port city of
12:02 am
a new including the airport and the presidential palace you either accept purchase forces who sees the city 2 weeks ago have withdrawn from several positions earlier all airports flights at the airport were suspended and workers were evacuated due to the fighting the u.n. says at least 40 people have been killed and several days in this dispute and hundreds more have been injured comparison moniz director of the office of foreign affairs of the so going transitional council in new york earlier we spoke with my colleague who was with ron accuse the un recognized government of doing little to fight who the rebels. what's going on in aden today in the capital city of i've done is that it's a. cheap tactic immoral cheap tactic by the legitimate government who is. using sleeper cells to activate them and to to cause chaos in the city all in the. 4 or negotiation
12:03 am
is a missile i'm not even to the government that the separatists have fought alongside the with the government and the saudi and iraqi forces against the whole things that point for the last 4 years of course actually the southern transitional council and the saddam forces were actually the main reason why the government even had a. or some ground to govern from which is done and some of the southern governor it's far as the fighting has proven over the past week. and. units have mobilized from there all to destabilize the situation large. military groups what have you with the weapons have mobilized to show what to destabilize shape what that is under the protection of the. security forces of the southern transitional council but what you would
12:04 am
normally do on the side of the government against the who things are you going to fight on your own against the whole things are you no longer going to be a part of the government you want to sion. unfortunately the government has proven that they have not no intentions on fighting the abilities they have been in a stalemate ceasefire in mad with the over 250000 troops for over 4 years and they have only used those forces to destabilize what have already been liberated by the saddam forces in the southern governor this is this says been proven last week and they have also proven which is another exposure to them that they have strong ties with the and a common ground with a common enemy because the southern forces have been the only genuine viable force that have conducted counter terrorism and saw it illegitimate government found a common denominator with these extreme school to fight or to try in the town to
12:05 am
destabilize you saw them forces in the liberated areas who are with the lists some . donny as an independent yemen analyst she joins us from washington d.c. thank you so much for your time so. the u.n. recognize government basically reclaiming control of most of aden what does this mean so actually as we're speaking i'm hearing reports that there are still some cautious so the control is not been complete yet what it means is that the southern transitional council and the legitimate yemeni government are going to fight over territory although some say that the southern transitional council is not fighting as it has as aggressively as it could signaling that there is some sort of deal also stating that the arab coalition that is supporting these different allies into some sort of a deal moving forward so as you know any time the government is supporting you know that's exactly what i was going to ask you is there what is going on do you think
12:06 am
with saudi and the u.a.e. . so the saudi and the u.a.e. forces are part of a united coalition and their allies to fight the host these in the north of yemen however as we've seen in the past few days the saudi government is supporting the legitimate yemeni government and the u.a.e. is supporting the southern transitional council i think the best way for us to understand what's happening in yemen is to actually imagine that the u.a.e. is pretty much in fight or not happy with the role of the legitimate yemeni government and that is what's playing out which then looks as a reflection as a disagreement between the u.a.e. and saudi arabia however all the official sources and the spokespeople from saudi arabia and the united arab emirates continue to say that they will work together and the u.a.e. has said that their allegiance is saudi arabia 1st and so it seems like some of the sis playing out expected before when this fighting started that they were going to
12:07 am
come to some sort of a deal for yemen where the yemeni government is going to have to make some concessions and share some of its power with the southern transitional forces it's really important to note though that the yemeni government had had control of that area for about 4 years and they failed to instill some sort of policies that seemed fair to the population so even if the yemeni government captures and then again it captures the south they're going to really have to change their policies they're going to have to address the concerns of the people because the secessionist cause is not something that was born over this war it's a demand that they've had for a while way before this war started and the government is going to have to be really smart to kind of address the grievances of so what or who is the support to the mechanism to force the government to do that. well obviously the arab coalition would have a lot of charge in that they would be able to advise the president who's been residing in deals for the past few years and so it's very possible that they could mediate something they even invited the southern transitional council and the
12:08 am
yemeni government to come and engage in a dialogue in saudi arabia and so it seems like they're open to having these negotiations but at the same time if they can support the government have an upper military hand that would certainly benefit the yemeni government in their dialogue with the southern transitional council. thank you so much for your expertise we appreciate it. thank you but i'm ahead of the news hour and clearly malaysia's former prime minister not to prosecute is back in court to face trial for corruption in the state and vestment find. brazil says yes to accepting aid to fight the amazon forest fires but insisted must be allowed to decide how to use the money and a debut u.s. open for this 15 year old tennis star will tell you how she's dealing with.

12:50 am
looking through the history books to try and find the lost son the parliament was suspended for 5 weeks or more and the last one they can find was in 1945 point obviously the u.k. had been through 6 years of world war 2 and much of it was in ruins so if the you know the government wanted to send out a signal about how seriously it takes its concerns over bricks and its desire to push the inside thing through then that's a strong signal as you could possibly find clearly. doesn't have to spend parliament for anything like 5 weeks in order to come up with a queen's speech and a new set of policy agendas for full for the new parliament and so the only signal everybody is reading into it says he wants to try to block all these pesky m.p.'s from attempting to subvert his plans to get the u.k. out of the european union by the end of october but you are now in the situation
12:51 am
where both the leave and the remain side of this agonized debates are claiming the democratic moral high ground because boris johnson and his aides will say that if the u.k. doesn't leave the european union by the end of october it will be a democratic outrage and democracy will suffer as a result and yet all their opponents say that in trying to suspend parliament and its right to have a say at this point in the process the government itself is involved in trying to engineer a coup against democracy. is and remains an idea about the british parliament taking back control of the agenda. and making it. make of the decision by the new prime minister to block it from sitting at all for a 5 week period at the most crucial moment in the process with a very possible national election insist it's about setting out his new
12:52 am
government's plans and that m.p.'s on. not being frozen out of having their say over bricks it will be time on both sides of that crucial october 17th summit ample time in parliament for m.p.'s to debate the e.u. debate breaks it and all the other issues ample time but those m.p.'s who have vowed to do anything in their power to block a no deal bricks it's even threaten to set up an alternative parliaments if their views are ignored describe the johnson move as nothing short of a constitutional outrage a step on the road to dictatorship it is a constitution that rage this is an attempt by a prime minister who was elected by a very small number of people in the country is served to party membership to ride roughshod over parliament and prevent any legislation or debate that would stop this country leaving me you without a deal and all the problems that it will cause he seems to want to run headlong

into the arms of donald trump. more determination to sing before this is extraordinary johnson had been thought to have been getting on better with european leaders of late and hope had not been lost among them that some new deal could be found but time is now extremely short and there's a genuine sense of crisis among those who fear the hardest of brics it's the great conundrum of a brecht it has always been whether it should simply fall to governments who execute the will of the people or whether parliamentarian should have some kind of final say to determine what thought of brecht's it they think people actually voted for by taking m.p.'s out of play at such a crucial time johnson is effectively testing whether they have the will the resolve to try to overthrow him his government and potentially the referendum result as well that attempts will now probably come sooner rather than later national elections will almost certainly follow something surely must happen now to

his. old this sense of democratic crisis in the u.k. . one photo for the rachelle fool the complaints that all these employees are making now about losing time the rights of the that desk of this death of this bricks it process and not having enough parliamentary times a block it's it's 3 in the whole of years since the referendum happens i mean how much time actually do they need to remain saeed's really is olds with itself some of them don't want some they want to 2nd referendum they don't want different things to each other and they have been completely unable to agree any sort of unified position and frankly if you look back now it's a reason maze deal which got thrown out by parliament on 3 separate occasions in all this thing called the backstop if you're a member that's keeping the irish border open while some alternative mechanism could be found and so so so the piece in ireland will since imperils i dare say if

you ask a lot of these m.p.c. voted against it well how do you feel about that now compared to the situation the u.k. is in staring down the barrel of a hard brics you probably a lot of them would have some buys remorse potentially and say well maybe we should've gone for that instead of rejecting it out of hand but unfortunate this point in time they play moments of short their own foxes they say and they don't really have anything to blame anybody to blame really but themselves ok lawrence les with the latest from london lawrence thank you. recognize government has mostly reclaim control of the southern port city of aden including the airport and presidential palace back separatist forces in seize a city 2 weeks ago have withdrawn from several positions earlier all flights at the airport were suspended and workers were evacuated due to the fighting the u.n. says at least 40 people have been killed and several days in this is it and hundreds more have been entered. as director of the office of foreign affairs at this have been transitional council in new york he says the move is likely to

further destabilize the region. unfortunately the government has proven that they have not no intentions on fighting the whole of these they have been in a stalemate ceasefire in mad with the over 250000 troops for over 4 years and they have only used those forces to destabilize what have already been liberated by this autumn forces in the southern governor it this is this has been proven last week and they have also proven which is another exposure to them that they have strong ties with the and a common ground with jesus a common enemy because the southern forces have been the only genuine viable force that have conducted counter terrorism and so the illegitimate government found a common denominator with these extremist groups to fight or to try and attempt to destabilize the saw them forces in the liberated areas who are with the lists unfortunately they could have used and focused these. military strengths or they

a police checkpoint where 2 officers die less than an hour. later there was a 2nd explosion at another checkpoint in the sales city killing a 3rd officer at stop the attacks were carried out by groups i saw. these events only serve the israeli occupation which tried to stab the palestinian resistance in the back what the occupation could not achieve by launching walls on gaza will not be achieved by such bombings or fosset as in gaza as the latest. this is the funeral procession for 2 of the 3 hamas police but policemen who were killed in a double attack late on tuesday night this is an assad which has come out of the blue there are people on the streets here to market it has shocked people in gaza hamas for all of the failings inside gaza the economic troubles the security problems with israel have gone to at least rely on hamas to some extent for internal security so this has come as a shock there's a good deal of outrage and support for what we understand to be
12:59 am
a crackdown being undertaken by how about security forces against the suspects in this those auspex be sol office pro isis al qaida style ideology groups now they have long been opposed to what has been going on in the south of gaza in terms of hamas is cooperation with egyptian security egypt is trying to crack down on this movement in the sinai peninsula and recent in recent years hamas has been cooperating with gyptian security kind of people over making it harder to get across the border there was an attack such as this in 2017 in southern gaza where this attack has come right in the center of gaza city so we understand there have been arrests made i'm asked does monitor the activity of these groups extremely closely and so the fact that this is happening does come as a shock close to hamas right around to the people here still head on al-jazeera.
