more now on brexit — now it‘s time for a the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has been in brussels this afternoon look at the weather. meeting the eu‘s chief negotiator michel barnier. let‘s cross to the newsroom and join he‘s been speaking to journalists in the last few minutes — ben rich. good afternoon, what a day let‘s listen to what he had to say. it is for many of us, not all of us we‘ve just had a series of very useful, informative and very frank discussions with representatives of the european union, and of course with michelle barnier. the danger of seeing blue sunny skies like this, a with michelle barnier. the danger of 3110 with michelle barnier. the danger of but many of us are, and where we a no deal exit from the european union from britain is a very serious have the sunshine, we have some warmth as well, temperatures have and very present one. we from the only been heading upwards, the air labour party have made it very clear heading our way has come from a long that we do not countenance a no deal way south, close to the caribbean. we have scooped that very warm exit, because of the danger to jobs tropical air up, we have moved it in and supply chains in the that direction, it is that air mass that direction, it is that air mass that we sit within today. the where manufacturing industry, as well as the cloud has broken up, we have the food processing and many other seen some the cloud has broken up, we have seen some spells of sunshine, temperatures have been climbing, industries. we‘ve put forward what parts of eastern scotland have seen we believe to be a credible process, temperatures up to 17.9 degrees. notice the february record for scotla nd notice the february record for scotland is also 17.9 degrees, so we which would be to negotiate a are very close to breaking a temperature record in scotland. through the rest of this afternoon customs union with the european where we see that sunshine, those union, and alignment to ensure market access. we are strongly of temperatures will continue to respond. during this evening and
tonight come a bit more cloud feeding and across parts of northern the belief that these proposals are ireland and western scotland, may be credible, and that has been the odd spot of rain here, quite confirmed by our meetings today, and that they could be negotiated. the breezy. as a consequence, not especially chilly but further east problem is the prime minister is and south, after that warm day, insisting on her deal, which has watch the colour drain away from the already been defeated very heavily chart, temperatures will dip away in parliament, and running down the just a few degrees above freezing in clock by trying to keep the threat places and also across this of no deal on the table, with all south—eastern quarter of the uk, we the damage that does. and so, when could see a mixture of cloud, mist we returned to parliament, we will and fog to start off tomorrow continue to put what we believe to morning. if you are travelling first bea thing on friday through parts of continue to put what we believe to be a sensible and credible way kent for example, along the south forward , be a sensible and credible way forward, which would protectjobs coast up into the midlands, east and protect living standards in britain, and ensure there isn‘t the anglia, here there is the potential disruption of what would be a very for some fog, quite patchy but also quite dense and some of that fog dangerous no deal exit from the could even spread into parts of east european union, and very damaging to the economic interests of people in wales, may be parts of northern england as well, and where we have this country and of course within the fog it could be slow to clear, it could spoil the day across parts the european union itself. it is of the south—east but for the much easier if we do one at a time, it is the way it works, so i will majority any fog will clear, lou ta ke it is the way it works, so i will take this gentleman here first. we will put a motion to parliament, as skies and sunshine once again, just this pesky clown for northern ireland, the west of scotland, the odd spot of rain here, but in the i have already, keir starmer and myself at a motion to parliament, sunshine, 13 to 1a degrees vary
widely, some spots will get a few which included the option of a degrees higher than that. into the weekend, changes will be slow, high pressure still sitting across the popular vote to confirm or otherwise continent, this frontal system agreements that have been reached, pushing in from the west, some and that was rejected by parliament cloud, patchy rain into northern at that stage, but clearly it is ireland, western scotland, may be very much part of the agenda put scraping into west wales is the day forward by the labour party. did mr wears on. the head of that, some spells of sunshine and some unseasonable warmth. six to 9 barnier say it would be impossible to have an extension? we have talked degrees would be typical, more like 12 to 15 on saturday. sunday could about the idea of extending article bring the return of some cloud, mist and fog, which again could be slow 50. well, it is obviously a complex to clear but i‘m hopeful by sunday and very difficult question for me afternoon, sunny skies, temperatures to a nswer and very difficult question for me to answer at this stage. the issue still doing pretty well for the time should be that the british of year. over the next few days as government should be serious about we head to the weekend, we would taking no deal off the table and expect more warm weather by day with moving in the direction of getting a some sunshine, some chilly nights political declaration, which would but the potential for some foggy lead to the kind of suggestions we have put forward on customs union. mornings. do you believe the majority of the british public would be happy with a customs union? well, there would be a say in how one does the trade
deals within a customs union of course, but i do think the majority of people in britain, however they voted in the referendum, didn‘t vote to see their rights torn up, didn‘t hello, i‘m shaun ley vote to see jobs lost, and didn‘t and this is afternoon live. today at 2. vote to see jobs lost, and didn‘t vote for disruption on the day we after the 11 resignations of labour and conservative leave the european union. i do think mps, now more fallout. there is an understanding of the two former government need to be intelligent, sensible and ministers warn they‘ll resign if there‘s a no deal brexit. practical how we take it forward. a former attorney general says he wants his party to act in the national interest. you say you want to see a say in if i were to get to a point where i felt my party european trade deals in future, but was no longer doing that, did you get any suggestion from the then i would have to resign the whip but that wouldn‘t mean i had to go meeting today that the eu is minded off and join something else. labour leaderjeremy corbyn, says is teenager shamima begum to negotiate that? look, we can't should be allowed back into britain negotiate, we are not the and given support. government. what we can do is set out what our objectives are as the a windfall of tax receipts labour party, as the opposition in means a big boost for the government‘s finances. parliament, we have done that. what i would say is the threat of no deal dozens die in a fire that ripped through four apartment buildings in bangladesh. is something that has deeply exercised people throughout the european union, they are very an unprecendented summit at the vatican on the sexual abuse
worried about the consequences of scandals in the catholic church. it, and that was conveyed to us in no uncertain terms during the meeting, that is why we are determined to get no deal taken off the table. many in brussels believe article 50 will have to be extended. i think it is clear that this prime minister, by refusing to change her red lines, is simply running down the clock, and that is what is instilling a concern here, and back in the uk, about the timescale, and the question really is why is the prime minister blocking a proposal, which is clearly credible, clearly capable of being negotiated, and would actually help break this impasse. that is why there is the anxiety. did it come up in the conversation today, was that something that was floated, some kind of extension? you will
appreciate these are confidential negotiations and we don‘t want to break trust with our european friends who have been so positive and frank in their discussions with us. and frank in their discussions with us. we have so many values in common, and we have an ambition for the closest possible relationship for the good of all, and that is where we are at times at odds with some in misses may‘s party. but it is not too late for misses may to listen to a proposal that we think we can get support in the uk and crucially in the house of commons, and can be constructively negotiated with the european union. she is allowing herself to be held to ransom by a small group in her party called the erg, and that is one of the problems. she has got to realise she has to change her ways, otherwise the danger of a no deal exit and all the chaos that would cause is a very real possibility. 0k? cause is a very real possibility. ok? last question over there.
cause is a very real possibility. 0k? last question over there. do you have further meeting scheduled with the prime minister? yes, we are prepared to meet the prime minister again, there is no planned or scheduled meeting, but yes, it would not be difficult to arrange i‘m sure another meeting with the prime minister. i wrote to her a very clear letter after our previous meeting which set out our views on this, a copy of which has been given to michelle barnier, so he is very well aware of what the position of the official opposition in parliament. jeremy corbyn and his colleague speaking to reporters in brussels. the british government has confirmed for the first time that around 100 "white helmets" rescuers and theirfamily members have been re—settled in the uk. they were evacuated from syria with the help of the uk last year. in the first tv interview with one of the resettled white helmet rescuers, the bbc spoke to a man who has left a life of pulling bodies from collapsed buildings in syria — and is starting out again in the uk with his young family. catrin nye met him.
translation: working with the white helmets was not a merejob for me, it was my whole life. when war broke out in syria, khalil, whose name we‘ve changed, didn‘t want to help. didn‘t want to fight. he became a white helmet, part of a coordinated group of rescuers across syria. they are backed by the uk government having so far had more than £38 million of uk funding. we went through sport and rope climbing tests, they examined our fitness. where he was trained outside syria in search and rescue, fire extinguishing, life—saving, and how to drive an ambulance. often when we were transporting an injured woman, man or child, they would start praying, kissing us, thanking us. it was such a beautiful feeling. for the people who are trapped in this conflict, the white helmets was their safety net.
khalil was a white helmet in syria for 3.5 years, but they operate in rebel areas and so became targets for the syrian regime. eventually khalil, his wife and children had to be evacuated. he was later brought to the uk. do you remember when you first arrived? i was shocked that, after being threatened by death or arrest, i was now in a safe country. here, there is freedom, democracy, peace, a multitude of all different religions, side by side, and many other things that i‘ve been living without. the white helmets went through a thorough vetting process, and were given refugee status before arrival as part of the uk‘s government vulnerable persons resettlement scheme. for the first time the government has confirmed it has resettled around 100 refugees who were syrian white helmets and their family members. i would hope they will play a full part in their communities here, that they will find safety, that they will learn english, that they will move into employment and they will find security,
safety and stability. a few months in, khalil and his family are getting used to life in the uk. life has completely changed. now i have goals, firstly to take care of my children and theirfuture, and i‘m working hard on learning the language here. i also want to return the favour to the united kingdom and its people who supported us while i was still in syria. catrin nye, bbc news. and you can see the full film at bbc.co.uk/victoria. in a moment we‘ll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news... the 11 mps who make up the new independent group say they expect more mps to join them, with two former government ministers warning they‘ll resign if there‘s a no—deal brexit. a windfall of tax receipts means a big boost for the government‘s finances. dozens die in a fire that ripped
